Following last week’s drama filled premiere, episode two of the Real Housewives of Orange County is coming our way tonight at 10/9c on Bravo.

On the new episode titled “Shameless In Seattle,” after being with Slade for a year and half, Gretchen still doesn’t know if she is ready for marriage again. Tamra opens up about her emotional divorce to pal Fernanda, while Alexis spends the morning at the park with her close friend Peggy and their daughters. The women have been friends through their pregnancies, but now that their kids are getting older, they find themselves becoming more competitive. And Vicki heads to Seattle for her annual insurance conference, leaving Donn alone, yet again.

Meanwhile, newbie Peggy Tanous opens up about her life and discusses joining the show in a new interview with the Daily Pilot. Peggy, 42, mother to two daughters – Capri and London - is a former model and public speaker. Peggy reveals ever since she was a little girl, she told her mom she wanted to be the next Marilyn Monroe.

As for the show, Peggy says she was actually approached about joining the cast a few years back but declined as she was a newlywed and didn’t feel it was the right time. The idea however came up again when she saw pal Alexis Bellino on the show. “[Alexis] was like, ‘I think you should try out’,” said Peggy. “I was like, ‘I don’t think so. I’m a mom now. I think reality [TV] can be a little scary’.”

So what can we expect from Peggy this season? She reveals while most of her day to day is “boring,” she did share a very sensitive part of her life – - her battle with post-partum depression. The series will show her going through a healing process.

And while she has yet to see the entire season, Peggy states she “would definitely do another season.”

Watch What Happens Live – The guests tonight will be Gretchen Rossi and boyfriend Slade Smiley. According to Andy Cohen, previously scheduled guest Sean Avery, of the New York Rangers, had to cancel.

TELL US – WHAT ARE YOUR THOUGHTS ON PEGGY’S INTERVIEW, THE PREVIEW & TONIGHT’S NEW EPISODE?

The fourth season of Celebrity Apprentice premiered last week, bringing us a whole lot of crazy!

The good news is that this season has only just began, in addition to the fact that the more boring sane contestants, coughs, David Cassidy, will be the first ones eliminated.

On tonight’s new episode titled “Child’s Play,” the “celebrities hope to have the write stuff when they pen an original children’s book, then perform the tale for youngsters. The plot thickens when one project manager fails to unite a team and the other group tries to tame a troublemaking teammate.”

The episode airs on NBC at 9/8c.

Meanwhile, bad news for Richard Hatch, the first winner of Survivor, as he was ordered back behind bars on Friday. The reason? For violating his probation.

If you recall, Richard had previously served more than three years in prison for tax evasion, and was required to re-file his taxes upon his 2009 release, as well as pay what he owed from 2000 and 2001. He apparently failed to do so.

Richard will serve a nine-month sentence. The judge also ordered him to serve 26 months supervised release, during which time 25 percent of his gross income would be garnished and paid to the Internal Revenue Service. Richard now owes an estimated $2 million to the IRS and is set to report to prison on Monday.

Outside the court, Richard revealed he was disappointed and planned to appeal. NBC has stated the sentence will not affect the show in any way.

And finally, it seems Nene Leakes is not the only “celebrity” to clash with Star Jones on the show as Lisa Rinna also took to her twitter page this week to diss Star. Lisa posted a photo of a grey-ish monster on Wednesday and captioned it – “Star Jones without her wig on!” Lisa then posted another pic of a different monster, captioning it “Great shot of me and Star Jones.”

It seems Lisa has since deleted the tweets but thanks to screen shots by Zap2It, photos of the postings are below.

TELL US – WHAT ARE YOUR THOUGHTS ON THE LISA & STAR FEUD? WHOSE SIDE ARE YOU ON? PLUS THOUGHTS ON TONIGHT’S EPISODE?

A week after the dramatic finale episode, which brought in very high ratings, the Basketball Wives reunion airs tonight on VH1.

Hosting the reunion this year will be former NBA star John Salley.  The ladies will all sit together to rehash the events that occurred this season, including the fight that broke out between Tami Roman and Evelyn Lozada last week, over Evelyn’s admission that she had slept with Tami’s ex-husband Kenny Anderson.

Since that episode aired, there have been rumors that Evelyn also slept with her BFF Jennifer Williams’s husband Eric Williams, but we can rest assure you that rumor is very false.

The reunion will be airing in two parts.  The first part airs tonight at 8/7c with part two airing tomorrow night, March 14 at 8/7c.  Gloria Govan will also be a part of the reunion show, appearing at some point.  A sneak peek is below.

In other news, it seems Royce Reed might be returning next season after all despite the recent comments made by Shaunie O’nealAccording to TMZ, Royce’s would be replacement Allison Mathis was axed by VH1 after her ex/baby daddy Chris Bosh put up a fight.

Apparently, Chris did not want Allison nor their daughter on the show, and VH1 simply decided Allison wasn’t worth the headache.  Sources say this move means Royce will likely be returning though producers are still hoping for a last-minute replacement.

NYC Housewives’ Ramona Singer is once again telling it like it is, and this time around she’s unleashing her ramotional views on the Real Housewives of Miami.

In an interview with the Miami Herald, the NYC Housewife shares her opinion on RHMIA’s Elsa Patton and Lea Black. According to Ramona, Lea is badly in need of a makeover.

“I thought she looked like she was going to a costume party,” Ramona stated about the House of Gaga reject attire Lea wore to Adriana‘s gallery opening. “She looked a little ridiculous.” Oh but Ramona had more to say. “Someone’s giving her bad fashion tips. I think she needs a makeover,” added Ramona about Lea’s crimes against fashion. “It just looks like she’s stuck in a bad era.” Ouch!

And what does Ramona think of the glamorous Elsa? “I freaked out. I didn’t know if she was a man or a woman at first,” said Ramona upon facing Elsa for the first time on television. “I didn’t know if she was like a drag queen, I swear.” Telling it like it is indeed.

In other MIA news, the Miami Herald reported last week that three of the housewives – Alexia Echevarria, Marysol Patton and Lea Black — share a six degrees of separation with Willy Falcon and Sal Magluta, dubbed “The Boys” during the real Miami Vice era. Both currently seat in prison as Falcon pleaded guilty to money laundering and got 20 years in prison, while Magluta was convicted in 2002, sentenced to 205 years and ordered to pay a fine of $63 million for laundering cocaine profits to defense attorneys, bribed jurors and Colombian hit men.

Alexia, 43, then Alexia Figueredo married a Magluta associate Pedro L. Rosello in 1992, the same year their son Pedro aka Peter was born in Hialeah. Rosello, who cooperated as a government witness, was ultimately convicted of cocaine trafficking, and served some time in prison. Alexia and Rosello were divorced by the end of 1995.

Meanwhile, Marysol, 44, was the girlfriend of a convicted, big-time cocaine distributor who also was a cooperating witness in the federal drug case.

As for the role of Lea, 56, she is married to famed attorney Roy Black, who was paid millions to represent Magluta. When Roy was asked about the connections between the Bravo show and the Willy-and-Sal case, he simply stated, “It’s so Miami, that’s for sure.”

Days after reports confirmed all of the original cast members of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills will be returning, more details are now coming out about the second season of the show!

A new report by the HollywoodLife confirms what was reported earlier this week, which is that season 2 has already began filming. In fact, sources reveal the second season is going to blow the first one out of the park as Bravo has some tricks up its sleeves, mainly the plan to add one or two new housewives to the show.

“I know Bravo is telling everyone to ‘not officially announce anything,’ but I personally know for sure they have already started filming for season two and they have offered a few people contracts to be new castmembers on the show,” the source reveals, adding, “They will have new cast members. But that doesn’t mean anyone is leaving.”

The insider adds that Bravo is making certain this season is more dramatic than before, and what better way than to have more trips planned for the housewives. Scary Island 2 anyone? “From what I know, they are trying to really up their game for season two,” says the source. “They are going to feature more celebrities and more group trips with the girls.”

In other news, In Touch magazine is reporting that Camille Grammer’s ex-husband Kelsey Grammer gifted his child bride new wife Kayte Walsh a very expensive wedding gift.

What is it you ask? Well, just a mere $1 million in cash! The mag claims Kelsey deposited the large sum of money into Kayte’s bank account. “He wanted to do something extravagant for Kayte,” a friend tells InTouch. “He’s loaded, so it was a drop in the bucket for him.”

And finally, UsWeeky reports that Kelsey is going to be a grandpa!  His actress daughter Spencer Grammer is now expecting a child of her own. The pregnancy is reportedly in the “early” stages.  Spencer, 27, tied the knot a month ago on Feb. 11 with James Hesketh.  She is Kelsey’s daughter from his first marriage to Doreen Alderman. A photo of Spencer and James is below.

It seems things continue to get serious between Kim Zolciak, 32, and her baby daddy to be/NFL player beau Kroy Biermann, 25.

Kim, star of the Real Housewives of Atlanta, revealed in Life & Style two weeks ago that following 10 months of dating, she and Kroy were planning to move in together in preparation for the Spring arrival of their unborn son.

And this week on twitter, Kim’s 14-year-old daughter Brielle Zolciak let it slip that her mom and Kroy were looking to buy a certain $3.25 million, 11,000 sq. ft. mansion in Duluth, Georgia. A major upgrade from Kim’s previous 3,396 square foot townhouse, that has been featured on the Bravo show and is currently listed for sale at $499,000. In fact, Brielle linked to the home on her Formspring page stating “”newwww house.” She has since deleted the post.

Kim also tweeted Thursday morning, “Fingers crossed this house deal works out and they accept our offer!!!!!! <— another reason I can’t sleep! Lol.” And when fans wished her luck on the new home, she replied, “Hopefully they accept our offer.”

The home listing shows it sits on a 2-acre estate at the listing price of $3,250,000. The 11,066 square foot brick residence has 7 bedrooms, 6 full and 4 half bathrooms, 3 full kitchens, 2 laundry rooms, 1 media room that seats 30 people, and a four-car garage. The home also boasts a swimming pool, and an outdoor basketball court.

Pictures of the home exterior and interior are below. Brielle also revealed on her Formspring page that Kim’s assistant Sweetie Hughes is gay. When asked about her thoughts on gay marriage, Brielle replied – “my best friends gay, my moms assitant, hairstylists, andd everyone my life revolves around is gay. what do u thinkk?” When another fan asks her if Sweetie is gay, she responded, “Thats beside the point.” Days later, both postings are still up so there’s a good chance it wasn’t meant to be a secret.

And finally, according to a NFL salary report via USA TODAY, Kroy earned $392,280 for his 2009 season with the Atlanta Falcons. While Sportscity reports Kroy earned $470,000 for his 2010 season, and is scheduled to earn $555,000 for his 2011 season albeit he doesn’t get cut from the team. As for Kim, she and her Atlanta Housewives costars reportedly earned $150,000 each for their 3rd season.

Good luck to Kim. Here’s to hoping this home purchase doesn’t end up similar to that of Sheree/Alexis/Peggy/[Feel Free To Insert Your Own Bravo Housewife Here], etc.

Good news for all the Kate Gosselin fans out there… Err crickets, as the TLC network announced this week that Kate Plus 8 will be making its return on April 4!

The all new season will begin with an hour-long premiere, showcasing Kate, 35, as she takes her 8 kids on a trip to Sydney, Australia to ring in the New Year.

“They visit the beaches and enjoy the warm December air on the other side of the world,” TLC released in a statement. “The family meets Australian aboriginals and learn about their culture.” The network also teases “Kate takes a boat to the middle of the ocean in hopes of swimming next to sharks – in a cage of course” Those poor poor sharks.

Meanwhile, it seems Kate’s children do not get many days off. According to the HollywoodLife site, the kids are currently in Kingsport, TN, working filming for the show during what is supposed to be their spring break holiday.

It gets even better as a source tells the site that Kate displayed some major diva behavior when she “made a scene” at the Tri-Cities Regional Airport in Blountville, TN and had police give her an escort through the relatively small airport.

“Kate had the police walk her through the airport and into the parking lot,” the source reveals. “She was talking about wanting them to escort her limo to the hotel so the photographers didn’t get near her. But I’m not sure if they ended up going that far.”

The TN trip will reportedly be shown on a future episode.

TELL US – WILL YOU BE TUNING IN TO THE NEW SEASON OF KATE PLUS 8?
