Apparently, having all the money you want, the reality fame you desire, and the plastic surgery you covet isn't always easy for housewives of the Bravo franchise. Just ask Real Housewives of Miami'sLisa Hochstein who is still battling it out with a preservationist society over her Florida dream home. The grass isn't always greener, y'all!
While the majority of her face and body is fake, I think Lisa's personality is as real and as sweet as it gets for these shows. She and her surgeon husband have been at odds with local groups regarding a house on Star Island, and I feel badly that she's being put through the wringer to keep the home they've purchased.
So this is getting even MORE interesting than I expected!
Yesterday it was reported that the cast members of Real Housewives of New York are at a salary standoff with Bravo and demanding massive raises. To prove how serious they were the ladies banded together and collectively refused to sign the contracts extended for season 6, which is supposed to begin filming on Monday!
Bravo retaliated by giving the women until TODAY to sign – or consider themselves canned! New details have emerged about the standoff, including The Hollywood Reporter confirming that it's very serious and very real!
"I didn't know what I was getting myself into," Teresa says of deciding to put her family on television for Real Housewives of New Jersey. "There's good and bad that comes with it." Teresa says her cookbook (and her new food line) are definitely the good.
The bad? Exposing all her personal issues to the world; including her financial messes, her marital troubles and her family dysfunction!
However, Teresa is adamant everything is "good" with Joe Giudice, as he prepares for his trial and that the girls are all doing well. "We've been married 13-years and still going strong," she maintains.
I know what you're all thinking, and we're totally on the same page. It's been far too long since we've had the pleasure of watching Kody Brown's hair blow in the wind as he traverses the roads of Nevada in his nifty convertible.
It's already been reported that Pinot Singer got loaded and threatened to run off with the entire WWHL bar if Andy didn't pay her more, to which he laughed dangled a chilled pinot in front of her nose, and led her straight to his attorney's office where she signed on the dotted line. Translation: she tried to hold out for more money, was denied, and then finally agreed at the last minute to come back when Bravo didn't take the bait.
Well, now it seems ALL the ladies are making some big-time salary demands! And for the first time in recorded history the cast is getting along as they band together in a standoff with producers and Bravo! The show is supposed to begin filming Monday, but the cast is reportedly refusing to show up to work unless their salaries are upped according to TMZ!
Quad Webb-Lunceford is most definitely the breakout star of Married To Medicine. With that larger than life personality and those witty catch phrases, of course she is! Love her or hate her, Quad is reality TV gold.
While some fans of the show think she is over the top, Quad explains that she loves life, every moment of it, and that enthusiasm naturally comes out through her personality. She describes herself as "very animated" and "a character."
