With the magic of the original boys of Million Dollar Listing bringing in the ratings LA-style, Bravo is turning their eye to the city that never sleeps – New York. It’s sell, sell, sell twenty-four seven in the big apple on Million Dollar Listing New York!
The new season premieres tonight on Bravo, and it promises to be as exciting as the original flavor, minus the awesome Malibu beaches and Josh Flagg‘s grandma.
The premise is the same; three young male realtors go head-to-head to outsell and out-shark each other for the most prestigious listings and the clients with the largest wallets. Except this time, it’s penthouses and brownstones instead of beach front property and mansions in the canyon. Well, I hope no one has horses in their highrise!
In tonight’s season premiere episode, prettyboy Ryan Serhant(who is rumored to be dating NY cougar Housewife Sonja Morgan) works for a friend who is being one-hundred percent honest. Michael Lorber fueds with another top Manhattan broker and quirky Fredrik Eklund has dealings with a vulgar and foulmouthed client. No, it’s not Bethenny Frankel! See the video trailer below!
Million Dollar Listing New York premieres on Bravo at 10/9c.
WILL YOU BE WATCHING? DO YOU THINK THE NY VERSION WILL BE AS GOOD AS THE ORIGINAL?

Oh goodness, the Real Housewives of Orange County got old fast, didn’t it? Well here’s some good news (and some funny news) to revitalize our lagging OC spirits!
First up, some exciting news! Tamra Barney is engaged to Eddie Judge! “They’re keeping the news under wraps until they have to film the reunion show in a few weeks,” a source close to the couple tells Life & Style. “They are so happy and excited!” Tamra has always maintained Eddie is the love of her life but after viewers witnessed her telling him she didn’t want to live together, many thought their relationship was doomed. Luckily not. Congratulations to the happy couple and I cannot wait to see this wedding dress!
And now onto some other engagement news! After a report came out last week that remiss on child support payments, Slave Slimey,was spotted shopping for a 4.5-carat canary diamond, set in a bed of smaller white diamonds, which he knew would “steal Gretchen [Rossi]‘s heart”. Some of our astute readers pointed out that the ring sounds awfully familiar. Familiar, as in, it fits the exact description of the engagement ring given to former fiancé Jo de la Rosa. Jo appeared on the first and second seasons of RHOC before dumping Slave’s scummy butt! He then moved on to her now former friend, Gretchen! A photo of Jo from her Housewives days is below!
In fact, on a site promoting Jo’s speaking engagements, her ring is described as a: “$100,000 canary diamond ring.” Oh, canary? Either Slade really likes canary diamonds or he’s recycling that rock! We smart viewers can do the math.
I guess that clears up just how Slave can afford the ring! He’s been storing it all this time until the next desperate right woman comes along! Since Gretch is just leasing Slave, it only makes sense that she lease her ring too! A photo of the alleged ring is below. As Phyllis Neffler infamously said of canary diamonds “listen to it sing…” In this case, listen to it sing a song of shame!
Moving on, Jim Bellino famously quit the show after his true colors (a smeary color of beigy brown, aka douche) shined through and fans reacted negatively to his king status versus Alexis Bellino‘s inferior servant one. Hey, whatever floats their leased and about to be repo’d boat! While Jim doesn’t regularly show his face on film, he’s been the talk of the town this season and has taken to telling his side of the story in an eloquently written personal blog. I feel so sorry for Alexis’ assistant, who you know transcribes this crap.
In the newest newsletter of truth, Jim insists Alexis is, like, really independent! Jim takes issue with the scene of Alexis grabbing a drink with Heather Dubrow, where she describes their marriage. “An example of seeing a particular scene and NOT the full event is when you hear Alexis say, “No, I still do it all, I make the kids lunch, give them baths, pick them up from school,” and so on. THIS IS NOT THE WHOLE TRUTH,” Jim asserts. Gosh, I love when Jim gets all ragey and emphatic with the CAPSLOCK!
“When Alexis works at Fox 5, she gets up at 5am to work. At that time I get the kids up, get them ready for school, feed them breakfast, and take them to school. During the other times I work two jobs, so sometimes I am not home to help. We’re both there to parent on the weekends, and Alexis will be the ﬁrst to tell you I spend plenty of time with our children.”
Jim adds, “I guess my point is, a simple scene can give viewers the impression that Alexis does everything with the kids and Jim does nothing. That’s simply not true.” Jim goes onto chastise other cast members for intentionally “hurting” his feelings over allegations that he does nothing. “I have been very tempted to blast particular cast members. But I promise you, if you will just try to look at the underlying reason someone tries to hurt you instead of letting your natural defense mechanism go to work, you will ﬁnd much more peace for yourself.”
And he gives us viewers a little challenge – can we turn this into a drinking game? “I challenge you to watch any of the episodes a second time and really look at the eyes of every cast member (be sure to have a pen and paper.) Focus on the eyes of each person and write down the emotion you sense that person is going through in their life—don’t judge based on what you know about the person, or what you think you know—just look at their expression and try to read the story being told by their eyes.”
Moving right along, Tamra has some things to say regarding what we see on TV vs. her real life! First off, Tamra is adamant that some of the ladies are real-life friends off camera. “I hang out with Vicki [Gunvalson], Heather and Gretchen. There is not much arguing going on while the cameras are down,” she tells The Dish. “If we do get upset with each other it is because of something that was said on the show or in the press.”
And rescinding some of her earlier statements, she doesn’t believe Vicki is jealous of her friendship with Gretchen! “I think Vicki was just caught off guard with the new friendship. I really don’t think she is jealous, more confused to how this happened.”
Finally, Tamra tackles Slade’s horrible comedy attempt. “I though it sucked. I thought we were in a much better place, and to find out he did that set us back. There is nothing entertaining about a man making fun of the way a woman looks. It’s pretty degrading. But honestly it didn’t affect my life, so who cares!” Good attitude, T!
Tamra continues voicing her opinion in her Bravo blog. “The battle between me, Gretchen, Slade, and Vicki has been going on for years and it is by far not one sided. I don’t like the fact that Slade is acting like the victim, as if our “accusations” ruined his life. He is just as much to blame,” Tamra recounts. And I agree!
“His stand up is a perfect example of the things that have happened to put a wedge in our friendship through out the years. I am not condoning any of what has gone on between us. We were all to blame for this long and hurtful fight. We are all responsible for our own actions.”
Tamra claims she and Gretchen were elevating their BFFL status to piss Vicki off. “After Alexis and Vicki started mocking Gretchen and I about becoming friends, we decided to lay it on thick — throwing out the BFF word to shut them up. It was all in good fun and Vicki knew we were joking.”
“I have room in my life for more than one BFF. I have never turned my back on Vicki or put Gretchen before my five-year friendship with Vicki.”
Tamra also discussed Alexis’ behavior, and forget about Vicki’s jealousy, she’s more focused on Alexis’! “Alexis seems to put down Heather every chance she can,” Tamra shares. “Alexis is extremely materialistic and wishes she had everything Heather has. First thing that came out of her mouth at lunch was ‘I want that purse, I’m going to steal that purse.'”
Finally, tonight is an all-new episode of RHOC, and Tamra hosts an eighties party and pisses off supposed BFF by inviting Slade and Gretchen after word got out of Slade’s insulting and horrible comedy show. Tempers flare and conflict emerges when Vicki and Gretchen butt heads! Plus Alexis plans her nose job! A preview of the new episode is below.
A new episode of Real Housewives of Orange County airs tonight on Bravo at 8/9c.

On last night’s episode of Bethenny Ever After the crew continued their vacation in Montauk, where Jason and Bethenny continued their passive aggressive marital meltdown. There were some cute parts (Cookie) but it was a lot of raw sadness in the form of a couple who seems genuinely at odds, but still love each other.
Things start out with Dwayne. Bethenny has a driver now – who also seems to double as a bodyguard. Is she afraid of Jill, now that she has been cast aside from reality TV? Why Bethenny can’t drive herself to Montauk is interesting to me… she did so last week. I guess she’s big league now, or a “baller” as Bethenny likes to say. Also on the trip is Bethenny’s Glammy. Does she own this Mercedes?

No, hell has yet to freeze over, and yes that is a photo of Brandi Glanville looking rather chummy with her ex-husband’s former mistress wife, singer LeAnn Rimes!
To bring you up to date, once upon a time, Brandi, star of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, was happily married to actor Eddie Cibrian, that is until Eddie went off to shoot a movie with LeAnn, during which the two began to have an affair! Brandi forgave Eddie and tried to make her marriage work, but couldn’t as Eddie and LeAnn continued to see each other.
Fast forward to today, Eddie and LeAnn are now man and wife, while Brandi is a single mom to her two sons with Eddie. Things had gotten pretty ugly with Brandi & LeAnn, with Brandi, rightfully, slamming LeAnn at every opportunity in the press. Which now makes these latest set of photos, all the more shocking.
The photos were snapped on Sunday during the soccer game of Brandi and Eddie’s son, Jake. Brandi and LeAnn shared laughs while sitting on a blanket in the grass, and were also pictured walking together. Eddie was also present at the game, and kept it classy as always when he later displayed some PDA with LeAnn. More photos of the trio below!
Must say, kudos to Brandi for being able to get over the anger and trying to get along with LeAnn for the sake of her kids. Don’t know if I would be able to do the same if I were in her shoes, but kudos to Brandi for putting her kids first.
Moving on to Lisa Vanderpump, who might be getting her own Bravo spinoff after all!
Just a month after a report came out stating that Bravo had decided not to pick up her show, which she had already filmed a pilot for. Huffington Post writer Rob Shuter just tweeted moments ago that it has now been picked up by Bravo. Rob wrote, “Congrats to @LisaVanderpump her spin off Bravo show has been picked up several insiders tell me.”
According to reports, the spinoff show will focus on the ins and outs of one of her restaurants, following the chaos surrounding the restaurant and the lives of both Lisa and her staff.
The timing of this report is interesting, as Lisa, age 56, recently revealed that her hubby Ken Todd does not want her to return to the RHOBH. In a recent interview with KTLA, Lisa made the surprising revelation.
“I don’t know really ,” said Lisa when asked about a Season three return. “My husband’s not as in to it as he was because for some reason I’ve managed to fool him for the last 30 years in to thinking I’m perfect and he hates to see me criticized.”
Even worse, Lisa also shares Ken’s sentiments following the nasty season two reunion. “After the reunion, I felt blindsided and I went out of town for a week because I really did feel devastated and it wasn’t just the accusations it was the silence of my friends that’s what was really hurtful,” said Lisa.
Safe to assume if Lisa’s spinoff does well, she is a goner on the RHOBH! However, it’s highly unlikely her show will air before the next season of the RHOBH begins to film, as Bravo began filming last season during Spring.

Last night’s Basketball Wives was, per the usual, a hot mess of hating on the new girls, horrific dancing, and bad behavior at a charity event. Hmmm, was it a rerun?
The episode begins in Miami, with Evelyn coming over to Tami’s house to visit. Evelyn is so over the infidelity rumors, and Tami totally understands the lifestyle of an athlete, but that doesn’t necessarily mean he’s cheating on her. She advises her friend to ignore all the press. Evelyn has tried to tell Chad that the rumors don’t just affect their relationship, they affect their children. Tami is convinced the pair will be happily married in no time.
Evelyn takes the red-eye to New York to meet the new girls with Suzie. Evelyn is keen on Kesha’s style, but she is questioning Kenya’s weave. Kesha can’t get over Suzie’s constant penis references. For Suzie, Evelyn brings up Kenya’s Youtube videos. Evelyn is impressed that Kenya is open to taking down the videos, after hearing that they aren’t sexy or good. Evelyn feels a tad (just a tad) badly about bringing the videos’ suckiness to Kenya’s attention.

In today’s not so surprising news, the vapid and self-absorbed Kim Kardashian is still refusing to return the thousands of dollars in wedding gifts she received! But she did make good on her promise to donate the money the gifts are reportedly worth!
Instead of just sending the gifts back with a heart-warming “thank you,” Kim issued a note to wedding guests letting them know that while they won’t get their presents back, she’ll be donating twice that amount to a charity of her choice. I wonder if Kris Humphries‘ parents also got a copy of this wonderful letter?
“I would like to thank you for your generous and thoughtful wedding gift. It has taken me some time to pull everything together but I wanted to let you know that the money for every gift received by me at my wedding has been donated to the Dream Foundation …,” Kim’s note read. A photo of the letter, obtained by TMZ, is below! I smell a publicity stunt from Kamp K on this one!
So, why won’t Kim return the gifts? Because she allegedly exchanged them for Rolex watches. Straight Klass right there! Weeks after she filed for divorce Kim was spotted swapping out the presents (which were never even picked up from the designer boutique where she registered) and picking up some trinkets for herself – including a couple Rolex watches for members of her family!
Kim and Kris received upwards of a $100,000 – $250,000 in gifts and reports speculate they were even gifted a Ferrari! Kris has maintained that he has never even seen the loot, as he was whisked away to NYC following their three-day honeymoon to film Kourtney and Kim Take New York; otherwise known as Kim’s Really-Real Divorce Show.
Despite Kim’s generous gesture to the Dream Foundation, Kris still wants the gifts return to their original sender. Except Kris needs to realize she already cashed them in for more stuff for herself! Kim has a really tough life and deserves it!
According to TMZ, Kris is appreciative of her willingness to donate the cash, but feels that she should be giving back the gifts AND making the cash donation. Why? Because he feels she fooled the guests (and himself) into believing their nuptials were the real deal! I have to say, I agree with Kris! Kim allegedly made $17M off this sham wedding and all she’s shelling out is a measly $200k. Cheap!
Moving right along, Lamar Odom is depressed over getting benched. The NBA star who relocated from LA to Dallas to play for the Mavericks is having a rough go of things down south.
He is “heartbroken that he’s no longer on the Lakers,” a source reveals to HollywoodLife. And Lamar apparently regrets deciding to move to Dallas for his career!
Additionally, Lamar is feeling overwhelmed by several other stressors; including his demotion to the Texas Legends after a season of mediocre playing, and issues in his personal life. Sources report filming Khloe and Lamar is taking its toll on the basketball star, along with Khloe Kardashian‘s fertility struggles, which have been blasted all over the media in an effort to promote their reality show. His father’s illness has also been difficult for him to deal with.
Despite his frustrations, sources report Khloe and Lamar’s relationship is still strong. “They still have a tight bond,” the source explains. Lamar’s depression “isn’t affecting the marriage yet.”
“Khloé has really tried to help while he has been depressed. It’s been quite the uphill battle.” Hopefully Lamar can turn things around and redeem himself for the rest of the season.
I do wonder how much longer they will continue filming their marriage to appease Kris Jenner! Both seem over being a part of the show and Lamar has done very little to promote this season.

On this week’s episode of Sociopaths In Sweats, aka Bad Girls Club, the ladies head to Lake Havasu for a much needed vacation from their schedule of napping, tanning, and paranoid plotting. But first, Gia‘s DJ friend, Matt decides to come by for another visit. This time, he brings some friends for the rest of the girls in the house. And by some friends, I mean, he brings what appears to be 10 random dudes.
None of the ladies are very impressed, especially Erica, who rightfully decries their lack of a hostess gift. Instead, she and Amy have to go out into the wild to procure alcohol and pizza for the group. Erica interviews that none of them are her type: she prefers muscle, a clean-cut look, and–this is a direct quote–“must have money from somewhere.” At least we know she’s not judgemental.
In a moment of foreshadowing, Erica and the twins become inexplicably upset when Elease decides to become friendly with Matt’s friends, and even tells them about how she was jumped the first night in the house. The smile Elease has plastered on her face when she tells this charming tale is weird, but it’s probably a result of alcohol. Amy doesn’t like them either, and talking heads that, that’s “saying something.”

“LuAnn [de Lesseps], Sonja [Morgan] and Ramona [Singer] refused to shoot any scenes at Fashion Week in February, complaining that production was dragging on well past the date that was agreed upon, so they went on strike,” one of the original cast members tells the Huffington Post. “Ultimately, they did return to tape a final few scenes, but it’s not fair that they should have to give up their time, with no extra pay, just so the slower new girls can learn how to tape a TV show.”
The Huffington Post adds that filming typically takes place from September to February, occasionally going one to two weeks over schedule . Ramona was reportedly the first to start the revolt, leading to the other vets Countess Lulu and Sonja to follow suit, in what is quickly becoming the newbies vs. the vets.
“They might call it a strike, but the network sees it more as a little disagreement,” reveals a Bravo insider. “In the end, the ladies that didn’t make themselves available to shoot only hurt themselves, as it means the new girls will get extra airtime.”
The insider goes on to add: “What I can guarantee you is that if Ramona thinks she is going to win by messing with the new ladies, she can think again. These girls are killers.” Meow!
There’s no word yet on when the new RHONY season will premiere. It will be interesting to see how all the drama plays out with the three new additions to the cast, though I still strongly believe Bravo should have kept Alex McCord!
