Following a successful 3rd season, the boys are back to give us an inside look into the wheelings and dealings of high end real estate in California. Though as you can see from the above photo, one notable cast member from the previous three seasons is missing.
Yes,Chad Rogers is no longer on the show. Replacing Chad is Josh Altman, a 31-year-old successful real estate agent who specializes in the Beverly Hills and Hollywood Hills luxury housing market. Joining Josh this season are returning alums Madison Hildebrand and Josh Flagg.
As for the reason Chad left the show, he states it was “due to a career decision,” making it clear it was his choice to walk away.
On tonight’s season opener titled ‘Bad Market For Mansions,’ cast member Josh A. tangles with an angry seller trying to market his chic home, Madison seeks a party pad for a big-bucks entrepreneur, and Josh F. works for an eccentric seller with overly high expectations.

TELL US – ARE YOU EXCITED ABOUT THE NEW SEASON? WHAT ARE YOUR THOUGHTS ON NEW GUY JOSH & TONIGHT’S PREMIERE?
According to a new report by AM NewYork, Vienna, 23, former fiance of Jake Pavelka, was overheard “plugging” herself to be the next Bachelorette over dinner at Primo KO in New York City.
She was apparently in NYCto take part in a Bachelor reunion that was also attended by show alums Molly Malaney Mesnick, David Good, Rozlyn Papa, and Gia Allemand. No word on whether or not ABC is even considering having Vienna return as the Bachelorette though it might not be far fetched as Brad’s return is currently proving to be a success for the network. Monday’s episode of the Bachelor was the highest rated this season, bringing in 9.4 million viewers.
In other Vienna news, UsWeekly is also reporting she and former Bachelor contestant Gia Allemand got into a recent twitter war. It gets even better as it was over former Bachelorette contestant Wes Hayden, also Gia’s ex-boyfriend.
“I guess I can hope to be the Bachelorette now that Wes is dating Vienna!” Gia, 26, tweeted late Tuesday. Vienna didn’t take too well to Gia’s tweet as she denied dating Wes, despite claims they hooked up at a recent Bachelor reunion in Texas.
“It’s sad that people have to make up lies (Gia) that I’m dating someone so they can get sympathy and attempt to become the Bachelorette,” Vienna sniped back on twitter.
“[You are] a bad friend [and] everyone saw you guys at the reunion and in Texas. And [you] even approached me — hope they got it on camera. We will see soon on the Women Tell All [special],” Gia snapped back. “The world already knows [your] true colors.”
Yikes. As for what happened between Gia and Wes, Gia said the following to Realitysteve.com about his rumored hook up with Vienna, “Wes is a snake who only cares about himself and uses people to try to get another 15 minutes of fame, so this doesn’t shock me about him at all.” Safe to assume these are not friendly exes.

“I think when the camera follows you for months, that they really do get an accurate picture of who you are” – Lisa Vanderpump.
“I mean you see the footage. The footage doesn’t lie and in this arena, when the cameras are there, if they did see something negative, they would show it” – Lisa Vanderpump.
Please feel free to keep the above quotes in mind as you reflect back on the whole season and the reunion episodes. Following a pretty successful first season, the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills took a dark turn on the finale episode. Fast forward to 2 weeks later, and it is finally over. Oh yes! And not a minute too soon.
With that said, let’s get right to the recap! Part 2 of the reunion picks up where part 1 ended, with Camille vs Kyle. “What do you think Kyle has done to your reputation?” asks Andy to Camille, a question I really wished he would have asked Kim. Camille feels Kyle is the reason the world thinks she’s delusional while Kyle is adamant it was all Camille’s doing.
The topic of the she-said she-said drama is brought up once again, and Kim actually speaks up this time… to defend her sister, stating she did not hear Kyle say what Camille is claiming.

Following her tour bus fight with costar Kim Zolciak and shameful display in Miami, Nene has received criticism for her behavior on the show. And now in her latest Bravo blog, Nene attempts to defend herself, while also letting her fans know she is actually the victim of her costars. According to Nene, all of her fellow housewives have “formed an alliance” against her with the exception of Cynthia who Nene feels is the only one who “has a brain of her own.” Oh the irony.
Excerpts from Nene’s blog below -
There are so many issues I could address over the past few weeks with these ladies, but I choose not to because it’s easy to attack and judge! Those of you who have formed an opinion, nothing I say will change that! For those of you who love me, you will continue to do so. These ladies have apparently formed an alliance except for Cynthia who happens to have a brain of her own. I don’t have the energy nor do I have the time to stoop to their level of ignorance. I understand that everything about me is under attack. From the color of my polish to the style of my shoes because I’m a threat! I refuse to follow the leader. I am the leader! I have a take charge attitude so that makes me fierce competition… I’m a star in the sky so I’ll just stay up high because through it all, I’m still standing! Thanks for all the comments, the good and the bad.
Allrighty. Whatever helps Nene sleep at night. Meanwhile, things between Nene and Kim continues to deteriorate as the two, well mostly Nene, attacked each other on twitter Sunday night.
While Kim appeared on WWHL on Sunday, Nene wrote numerous tweets calling her a “trashy whore” and claiming she plays the victim role. Andy read one of the tweets to Kim on the show, after which she said Nene needs to leave her alone and worry about her warrants.
However, the most notable tweet from Nene came when a fan asked, “What u think abt Kim being preggo?” Nene tweeted back, “3 kids by 3 different daddys & no husband is nothing 2 b all happy about.” Ouch. Oddly enough, Nene has made the same claim at least three times in the past week alone on twitter, while Kim has yet to deny it. Nene has also yet to deny Kim’s claims that she has warrants.
And finally, the finale episode of the RHOA shattered all kinds of records for Bravo. With over 4.37 million viewers tuning in, it was the most watched Housewives episode ever in the history of the network. But even before the finale aired, RHOA had surpassed the Real Housewives of New Jersey to once again become the highest rated housewives series, averaging 3.5 million viewers per episode this season.
The Atlanta housewives reportedly received $100,000 each for season 2, and $150,000 each for their 3rd season. It’s safe to assume that amount will increase even more for season 4. Even safer to assume there will be a 4th season.
TELL US – THOUGHTS ON NENE’S BLOG AND TWEETS? ARE YOU SURPRISED THE RHOA IS THE HIGHEST RATED FRANCHISE?
Following Simon Cowell’s exit from American Idol, many predicted it would lead to the show’s demise that is until new judge Steven Tyler stepped into the picture, winning rave reviews from fans, and even being credited by some as saving the show.
And now according to a new report by Popeater, fellow judge Jennifer Lopezis not happy Steven’s getting all the attention. “This was meant to be Jennifer’s big comeback,” an insider reveals. “The entire re-branding of the show was built around her, but now it’s all about Steven 24/7.”
The insider adds that Jlo, who is used being lavished with a lots of attention, is getting irritated with people always asking her about Steven.
“She’s mystified at how this happened and has made it very clear to the producers that the cameras need to spend a little more time adoring Jennifer’s favorite idol — herself!”
A new episode of AI airs tonight on FOX at 8/7c.

According to a new shocking report by the DailyBeast, Russell is responsible for leaking the accurate spoilers for the show during seasons 19 and 20, both of the seasons he appeared on.
How did this revelation come about? Well, it all began when Jim Early, a Survivor message board commenter, was able to accurately predict the order of eliminations and other spoilers for the two consecutive seasons of the show.
And while most networks simply ignore those who post spoilers, CBS took notice and decided it was best to file a lawsuit against Jim, who in turn decided to reveal the source of his information. Jim tells the DailyBeast that he started talking to Russell on the phone during which Russell would give him little details and tidbits. However, once Russell realized how much attention those teases garnered on the message boards, he decided to turn things up a notch.
“He just started coming out and telling me what happened: who was leaving, who won challenges,” Jim said. “All I had to do was pick up the phone and say ‘hello’ and I had anything I wanted.”
Jim reveals he handed CBS email spoilers he also received from Russell. It seems CBS was very pleased with all the information they got and ultimately decided to drop their lawsuit against Jim due to his “cooperation.”
As of the moment, it remains unclear if CBS will penalize Russell, who is set to appear on the upcoming season, for his actions. The DailyBeast reports the Survivor cast members’ contract clearly states contestants may not reveal “the elimination of contestants and the selection of any winner.” The penalty for doing so? “Liquidated damages” of $5 million.
As for why Jim gave up Russell as his source, Jim claims it is “because of his attitude about the whole thing,” and because Russell had tried to implicate another player.
And while Russell has yet to publicly comment on this story, he did make the following post on his facebook page recently. “If you love the game, you won’t go to spoiler sites. Like who really wants to know who wins the superbowl before you watch it play out? Don’ t be a retard, lol just watch it play out and you will like what you see.”
The new season of Survivor premieres Feb. 16.

In other news, the NY Post is reporting today that Kelsey Grammer is now planning to wed his fiance Kayte Walsh on February 25 at The Plaza Hotel in NYC.
“Kelsey and Kayte have booked the Plaza ballroom for the reception,” says a source. “Despite the lavish surroundings, they want an intimate wedding with less than 150 guests. Kayte has laid out all the details, all the timings. The room will be decorated all in white, including a white cake. There will be a very tight guest list, and they won’t allow cameras in. They’re flying a lot of Kayte’s family members in from England and putting them all up at The Plaza.”
The wedding could however end up being postponed if a judge doesn’t grant Kelsey a divorce during the scheduled Feb. 7 hearing.
And finally, following her appearance on The View yesterday, Camille Grammer made an appearance on The Joy Behar Show where she was once again asked about her sex life, or lack thereof rather, with estranged husband Kelsey.
Camille admitted on the show that she and Kelsey went two years without having sex before they separated. “We just didn’t mesh sexually,” said Camille adding the problem was more with Kelsey. “It was more on his end … He was too busy watching FOX News. He didn’t want to cuddle,” she said.

And in a separate interview with Starpulse, Bethenny was asked if she will be tuning in to the new season of the NYC Housewives. “I will absolutely watch the first episode of RHONYC. I’m definitely curious. Then I’ll decide about what I’ll watch after that,” she answered.
As for the second season of her own show, Bethenny promises it will be “filled with laughter, tears, drama and real reality.” She adds, “This year marriage, motherhood, career, in laws, religion and turning 40. This season is incredible. I gave everything. I’m so proud.”
