Days after it was reported the NJ Housewives were visiting the Dominican Republic for a vacation on Bravo’s dime, TMZ is now reporting a crazy bar fight broke out on Wednesday.
According to sources involved in the situation, a couple of castmembers were hanging out at a bar inside the Hard Rock around 1:00 AM Wednesday morning when they got into a heated argument with a male patron.
The argument reportedly got so bad, to the point that someone involved grabbed a drinking glass and smashed it over the man’s head. The guy was hurt pretty badly and needed immediate medical attention.
Unfortunately, TMZ did not report the names of the castmembers involved though sources reveal Teresa Giudice and Caroline Manzo were spotted at the Hard Rock that night.
Bravo refused to comment on the situation, and RadarOline reported last week that the Bravo cameras were on hand to film the vacation aka there’s a good chance this will make the third season.

Brad eventually kissed Emily after she heavily persuaded him to. In his latest blog for PEOPLE magazine, Brad attempts to explain his side -
“One last thing … I want to explain why I didn’t kiss Emily while sitting on her couch. It’s no secret that I’m brand new to a lot of this. I’ve never dated a woman with a daughter before so I don’t know proper etiquette in that situation. All I know is this, I wanted to kiss Emily every second I was around her, but my very first concern was showing her daughter respect (as well as Emily). I realize it makes me look like a weird and awkward guy around Emily, but that’s anything but the case. Again, my first concern was her daughter.”

Though in Lulu’s defense, she was asked the question about Bethenny. “To tell you the truth, no!” answered LuAnn when asked if she misses Bethenny. “She’s doing her own thing now, so I wish her luck. Very happy for her. And you know, we have a new housewife now, so on to new and different things.”
The countess also denies those pesky reports that the upcoming season of the ‘NYC Housewives’ was postponed for being too boring. “Well, what’s going on is that there is so much drama that they needed more time to edit!” said LuAnn.
In other NYC news, it seems Kelly Bensimon took some time out of her busy schedule of staging paparazzi shots to visit Haiti. Yes, Kelly took a three-day trip to Haiti.
In fact, the NY Post caught up with Kelly at a recent event, during which they asked her about her trip and in usual Kelly fashion, her quote did not disappoint.
“It was so amazing to see these little girls carrying pounds and pounds of water on their head,” said Kelly. “There’s so much devastation.” Amazing indeed Kelly. This would explain Kelly’s crazy tan look above while at the Thursday grand opening of TEQA in New York, the same event at which the Post interviewed her.

In other news, today is the Oscars and yes Camille Grammer, star of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, will be helping to co-host the pre-show for the CNN network.
This is an open post, so please feel free to comment about Kim, Camille, the Oscars or whatever is on your mind!
The ceremony took place Friday afternoon at the Longacre Theater in New York City, where Kelsey recently starred in the Tony-winning revival of the musical La Cage aux Folles.
“Kelsey Grammer and Kayte Walsh were married today at a private ceremony for family and friends,” his rep said in a statement yesterday. The guests at the wedding included Kelsey’s grown daughter, actress Spencer Grammer, who read a poem, Kayte’s brother, who sang a song, and Kelsey’s 5-year-old son Jude (son with Camille). Kelsey and Camille’s daughter Mason, 8, reportedly didn’t attend the bash due to a talent show.
Following the ceremony, the newlyweds and their guests headed to the reception at the Plaza Hotel where they dined on a four-course dinner menu which accommodated the vegetarian bride and also included king oyster mushroom carpaccio, wild mushroom risotto, grilled filet mignon with blue potato gratin and bittersweet chocolate tart. The price? A mere $400 a plate. Wedding photos of Kelsey and Kate below.
It’s “bittersweet,” said Camille. “Kelsey and I spent 14 years together and built a great life for ourselves. We have two children, and they mean the world to me.”
“I do wish him well and I’ll miss him,” Camille added. “We spent many great years together and we’ve been through a lot. But at the end of the day, he’s made his decision and I’ll be fine. I’ve got a great support group, real and true friends and I’m moving forward with my life. I was sad and wanted to make things work but I’m completely fine now. I’m moving on.”
For starters, Sweetie was the so called “reason” for the big tour bus fight that ensued this season involving former BFFs Kim and Nene Leakes. Nene made a big stink on the bus, claiming she had a problem with the way Kim treated Sweetie, only to turn around and call Sweetie a slave to her face – more than once.
Since the airing of that episode, Sweetie continues to feel the brunt of Nene’s words and actions as Atlanta radio host Rickey Smiley launched a “Free Sweetie” campaign on Feb. 16 after Nene called his morning show.
“They’re doing it for Black History Month, and it offends me,” Sweetie tells Life & Style. “They have pastors calling into the radio station and praying for me. They’ve taken it too far. NeNe’s jealous that she’s not as close to Kim as I am. I’ve known Kim for 11 years, since I was a kid. Kim’s a great friend to me. NeNe’s traumatizing my life. She’s bringing hell to it.”
Kim also spoke to the mag about the Sweetie situation. “I never want to speak to NeNe again. My assistant Sweetie is so upset about the whole thing, she’s beside herself,” Kim tells Life & Style. “NeNe has problems.”
In other Kim news, we now have more of her interview with Life & Style magazine, in which she talks about her unborn baby and “amazing” sex life with 25-year-old dummy baby’s daddy to be Kroy Biermann.
“The baby’s fine — no complications or problems, thank God. I was pretty nauseous in the first trimester,” Kim tells the mag. “Now I drink Perrier all day — it’s the best ever and keeps me from the nausea. But, I am exhausted. We just went to Anguilla for 10 days, and I slept my butt off!”
And how much weight has Kim gained? “I don’t step on the scale, but I’d say I’ve gained about 20 pounds. I gained 30 with my first and 28 with my second.”
When it comes to how pregnancy has affected her sex life, Kim dishes to Life & Style: “It’s amazing! We’re in a really good place. Kroy loves me pregnant. I don’t remember my ex-husband being that into it, but Kroy loves it. He tells me I’m so beautiful. He’s really cute about it, and it definitely makes it a lot easier on me.” Good to know Kim. Good to know.

So is it time for Bravo to start panicking? Maybe, maybe not. Bravo did air a sneak peek of the premiere episode on Sunday night so perhaps the viewers who tuned in on Sunday failed to show up on Tuesday. But then again, it might just have been the bad word of mouth. As we previously reported, the show has been panned with negative reviews from both viewers and critics.
In general, premiere episodes tend to be low in ratings as some viewers wait for the drama to build up. Example – the October 2010 premiere of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills brought in 1.5 million viewers, but the viewership steadily grew as the show went on to average well over 2 million viewers for its first season.
And oh yeah, above is a photo of Marysol Patton and her 76-year-old mother Elsa Patton. The photo was taken this week during the RHMIA premiere party.
In other news, the ‘Real Housewives of Late Night‘ made their second season return last night on the Late Night With Jimmy Fallon show.

Perhaps Yvonne is Nene Leakes?
Watch the video below to find out what Renee, Dale, Denise, Lydia, and Yvonne been up to!
