It’s deja vu all over again for the Real Housewives of New York City as the Bravo network has decided to bump the show yet again.

After being bumped earlier this year in favor of the lackluster Real Housewives of Miami, Bravo has decided to delay filming on the new season of RHONY and some are now wondering if this could be related to the recent suicide of Russell Armstrong.

“We were originally meant to start filming on Labor Day,” a member of the RHONY cast tells the Huffington Post. “Then we all received an email saying we would start filming September 8th, when Fashion Week started in the city. Now we have all been notified that it has been pushed back another three weeks at least.”

The cast member adds that with the recent tragedy involving Russell, Bravo is now more hesitant to shake-up the cast fearing they might end up casting someone who’s too dark or mentally unable to handle being on a show like the Housewives.

“We expected a huge shake-up in the New York cast,” another star of the show reveals “But now, after what has happened, it might be more beneficial to proceed with the devil you know. The New York cast is certainly whacky but [for] the most part, we are all mentally stable which has to be a bigger priority at the moment than making crazy TV.”

Another source connected to production however assures E! the delay has nothing to do with Russell. “The shoot schedule for RHNYC was pushed due to production details that needed to be finalized and there is absolutely no correlation between RHNYC and RHBH production concerns,” reveals the source.

Meanwhile, whether or not Bravo decides to shake up the cast, it appears new cast member Cindy Barshop is likely done with the series.

A source confirms to the RumorFix blog that Cindy has not been invited back for another season of the Real Housewives of New York. If true, this doesn’t come as a surprise as Cindy didn’t add much to the show, was dull, and just seemed like a deer in headlights in most of her scenes. Let’s face it, she was out of her league with these women, who might or might not hold a PhD in drama!

Now if only Bravo can axe Kelly Bensimon as well. In light of the above comments, hopefully Bravo now realizes that having someone who might be mentally unstable on the show is not worth the risk.

Two days after officially tying the knot, Kim Kardashian was photographed above yesterday at LAX getting ready to jet off on a secret honeymoon with husband Kris Kardashian Humphries!

But first things first as new reports are now stating the Keeping Up With The Kardashians star’s wedding was more awkward than romantic.

“It was awkward,” a source who attended the lavish wedding which was filmed for E! told UsWeekly. The reason? “There were 100 crew members everywhere,” explains the insider, “and people kept complaining they almost got hit by five camera guys everywhere they went. ” Wowzers!

But there’s more as the insider revealed noise was also a factor for the over 440 guests who were present at the bash. “The helicopters were so loud nobody could hear the ceremony,” the insider revealed, adding that Kim, 30, and Kris, 26, also had to wear microphones for the taping.

And it gets even better as in other to prevent images or footage from leaking out (PEOPLE magazine paid a ton to get the exclusive images) the guests were not only stripped of their cameras but also their cell phones. But don’t feel so badly for the guests as the Kardashian family provided a “hotline number” for the guests who wanted to check in on their kids left behind at a hotel. Ah, the romance!

Don’t feel bad for Kimmie as well as she reportedly raked in over $17 million from her wedding festivities.

Meanwhile, it seems Kimmie, who shares every single aspect of her private life with the public, was actually able to keep something under wraps!

Following reports that she would not be going on a honeymoon with hubby Kris, Kimmie surprised the media and public when she flew out of the country yesterday for her honeymoon! The E! star was photographed above with fiance Kris on Monday afternoon as the two reportedly departed for Italy. They are planning to visit different parts of Europe. Perhaps this wedding wasn’t solely made for TV after all.

And finally, it appears Kimmie will never be able to escape her past, you know, that whole sex tape thingy. First there are reports that her sex tape costar/ex Ray J sent her a text on her wedding day which read: “And to think you really have me to thank for all this.” Kris Jenner was reportedly furious over the text. While Ray J has vaguely denied sending that text, TMZ does confirm the site hosting Kimmie’s sex tape got a record number of hits over the weekend.

Roughly 2 MILLION people visited KimKsuperstar.com between Friday and Sunday night, which is a huge boost for the site which typically averages 300k visitors per month. Congrats in order for Kimmie?

John Salley was back last night with the second half of the Basketball Wives reunion. There’s more drama than the first half, but it’s just a lot of yelling and cussing about the same old beef. All in all, it was a mediocre end to a mediocre season.

John dives right in, bringing up Meeka’s feelings that the show wasn’t a true representation of who she truly is…and he asks the other ladies if they agree. Meeka is not amused at his attempt to poll the other “wives,” and Evelyn guarantees that Meeka would do another season if asked. Right then and there, Tami vows that if Meeka returns, she won’t. Mmm hmm. Sure.

Real Housewives of Orange County star Alexis Bellino is suing mad after In Touch Weekly magazine branded her as being broke and “bankrupt” on the cover of a recent issue (the cover is posted below). She’s not broke?

TMZ reports that inside the mag, the article read, “Bankrupt! Evicted! Foreclosed! Housewives Are Going Broke.” The article continued, “After selling off her home at a fraction of its cost to avoid foreclosure, Alexis Bellino still refuses to admit she and her husband … have money troubles.”

Well Alexis didn’t take too kindly to the cover story as she had her lawyer fire off a nasty cease and desist letter to the mag days ago, demanding In Touch retract its “patent, malicious, and libelous comments.”

The ‘sis and desis’ letter (hi Tamra!) claims Alexis is “in great financial health” and if In Touch doesn’t retract its comments, she plans to sue. TMZ adds that In Touch has yet to respond to the letter.

A bit odd that Alexis would threaten to sue when she did appear to have some financial issues last year. Her home with hubby Jim Bellino was indeed facing foreclosure until the bank decided to cancel the scheduled auction earlier this year.

And while they did not file a personal bankruptcy, Jim did file Chapter 11 bankruptcy for one of his businesses. But apparently all is well and there are no financial troubles. Must say these two are starting to remind me of another Bravo Housewives couple who shall remain nameless, from the way the husband treats his wife right down to the part about threatening to sue media outlets for reporting about their finances.

Think you could survive another season of competition and deprivation in the wild? CBS hopes so! Survivor: South Pacific is returning for its 23rd season!

The drama begins in Samoa, as the 18 castaways are divided into two teams, the Savaii Tribe and the Upolu Tribe, both named for Samoan islands. The cast will include 16 Survivor novices and two former castaways back for revenge, another chance at famewhoring, and a million dollars.

This isn’t the first time CBS has employed this trick, as Season 21, Redemption Island mixed in two experts with the pack of amateurs castaways. Even though several of the cast members are first timers on Survivor, many have “experience” with reality tv – and you know what that means: they know how to cause D-R-A-M-A!

CBS has released the names of the 16 newbies this week and plans to release the names of the final 2 contestants later in the week. No ideas yet of who it could be! I’m hoping for Richard Hatch, if he’s not back in prison! Also one of the new contestants, 19-year-old Brandon Hance, is actually the nephew of villain Russell Hantz!

Borrowing another twist from Redemption Island, the eliminated castaways aren’t immediately vanquished, but instead go to “Redemption Island” (the place, not the season) where he or she will face off against the next person eliminated by Tribal Council. The loser of the duel will then be sent home, while the winner remains in the game until the next person voted off arrives, where the cycle begins anew until ONE eliminatee, referred to as the Sole Survivor, is left standing. The Sole Survivor will then return to the game to compete for the million dollars. I guess, no one is truly safe in this edition!

The 90 minute season premiere airs Sept. 14 8/9c on CBS. The cast bios and photos for the 16 new contestants are below!

UPDATE - Ben “Coach” Wade and Oscar “Ozzy” Lusth are rumored to be the two returning cast members.

After TMZ reported that Taylor Armstrong was once beaten so badly by her late husband Russell Armstrong, to the point that she needed surgery, many wondered why neither Taylor nor the doctor(s) who performed the surgery on her failed to alert the police.

Fast forward to today and TMZ is now touching on that issue. According to TMZ, sources state the doctor who performed surgery on the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star failed to report the incident to police even though medical professionals who suspect domestic abuse are required to report it by law.

The alleged incident is said to have occurred in June. Russell allegedly beat Taylor so badly to the point that he broke her cheek bones. And when Taylor informed her costars Camille Grammer and Kyle Richards of the incident, Russell reportedly sent Camille a threatening email.

TMZ adds that the cops never interviewed Taylor because no one reported the incident. TMZ also makes it clear that the surgeon who performed the surgery was NOT Adrienne Maloof‘s hubby, Dr. Paul Nassif. In addition to the doctor, the hospital staff also failed to report the incident.

RadarOnline adds to the TMZ report by stating Taylor did not get the cops involved because she wanted to protect her 5-year-old daughter Kennedy. “She told me she was trying to protect Kennedy,” a source said of Taylor’s decision not to file a police report. “She said that she didn’t want Kennedy to know and she knew that Russell would never harm their daughter… Kennedy would hear them yelling behind closed doors but she didn’t witness any violence.”

Meanwhile, a week after Russell took his own life, the Huffington Post is now reporting he was never paid by Bravo to appear on the RHOBH.

“The only people that get paid to be on the show [are] the Housewives,” a member of Bravo’s Housewives franchise reveals. “Some of the husbands signed the same contracts as their wives without the financial compensation and others like Jill Zarin’s husband, Bobby, sign a day release every time they appear in front of the camera. Most of the husbands are happy to be on the show to support their wives’ dreams.”

“No one has become extremely wealthy from the money they get from the show,” adds an insider. “Last season, the ladies on the New York franchise earned $265,000 for the entire season, while the men earned nothing — except Alex’s husband [Simon] who was paid separately for a web-based show he did.”

While Russell’s attorney has publicly stated Russell suicide was likely a result of his mounting financial problems and impending divorce, his family, his mother specifically, has blamed Bravo saying Russell couldn’t handle the pressure of being a reality TV villain.

For the time being, Bravo has confirmed it will indeed edit the upcoming RHOBH season. While it was reported last week that the Sep. 5 season premiere will be pushed back at least a week, the network reiterated again over the weekend that no decision has been made regarding the season 2 premiere.
