Airing last night on Bravo was the 8th episode of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. The episode titled Charity Cases was more on the somber emotional side as we saw a different side to two of the housewives. Though while watching last night, I couldn’t help but experience deja vu as most of the story lines felt a tad familiar. Example, the in-home bikini waxing scene and the charity event being hosted by a housewife with an abusive past ( a la Nene Leakes from RHOA’s second season). I guess it’s the price Bravo has to pay for having as many Housewives franchises as they do. With that said, let’s get right to the recap!

The episode begins with Kyle Richards training for a 69-mile bike ride. We find out it is for a charity cause to raise money for cancer. Kyle is training with her coach who casually mentions that a bikini wax is recommended for bike riding success. No reason is really given other than one does not want to have too much padding down there. Kyle proceeds to get a wax and to put herself at ease, she invites the waxing lady to come do it at her house, in front of her 14-year-old daughter Alexia. And something about this scene, I’m pretty certain another Bravo housewife has also done an in-home bikini waxing. It’s not coming to me right now but I feel like I’ve seen this scene before. Plus I was a bit confused in this scene as it seemed to insinuate Kyle had a lot of ‘padding” down there. Are we to believe Kyle doesn’t wax, shave or nair? Perhaps she just needed to bare it all. Whatever the case, Kyle gets her bikini wax and is now ready to ride!

While her supposed “divorce” from husband Gregg Leakes remains up in the air, Nene Leakes seems more than content with milking the story for all it’s worth.

And why not? After all, Bravo has spent a good portion of the Real Housewives of Atlanta‘s third season focusing on her “divorce” storyline. In a new interview with Access Hollywood, Nene, 42, touches on the divorce drama and had some choice words for her co-star/frenemy Kim Zolciak.

When asked about her current status with Gregg, Nene shared, “Obviously it’s hard, I’ve been with Greg for 14 years. So, its hard, he’s my friend, we have a family, we have a son.”

But don’t you dare think for one second that this marriage might actually have a fighting chance as Nene makes it very clear it could come crashing down at any second. “We’re legally married. We’re in the same home. We’re legally married and that can mean whatever you want it to mean,” she continued. “We’re legally married today, it does not mean I’m [going to be] legally married next week or next month.”

When it came to her costar Kim, Nene didn’t mince her words. “I’m done with Kim. I never have to see her again,” she snapped. “It really doesn’t matter, I’m totally done with Kim, like done.”

Perhaps Nene’s words might have to do with Kim’s comments in her latest Bravo blog. An excerpt is below -

“The next day I called NeNe over to my house for some wine and girl talk. NeNe always keeps me laughing, but it made me furious to hear that, “The jury is still out” as to how my girls will end up when they’re older. Hasn’t her son been to prison? Sorry, Boo, but the JURY HAS SPOKEN! My girls will be fine. “

Moving right along. Nene also appeared on Lopez Tonight during which she revealed she would love to appear on Dancing With The Stars. “Absolutely. They need a black girl like me. They really do,” Nene said. “They need a black girl like me to keep it real on the show.” Nene will be appearing on the next season of Celebrity Apprentice, currently slated to air in March.

Could the Kardashian sisters’ world domination be coming to a close end?

First came that whole Pre-paid Kardashian Kard debacle, followed by an embarrassing charity stunt gone wrong, plus low sales of their new book Kardashian Konfidential, and now a new report that reveals their fashion “empire” is in crisis.

UsWeekly is reporting that the Keeping Up With The Kardashians stars Kim, Kourtney and Khloe’s collaboration with clothing line Bebe is coming to an end.

The reason? Well the unofficial reason rather is simply because the line did not perform as well as Bebe would have liked. Bebe president Emilia Fabricant however put it in nicer terms. “The sisters do still have relevance. We need to move with fashion and we want to be first in the fashion world with everybody else and not fall behind,” Fabricant told WWD. “We are definitely assessing the situation.”

It doesn’t end there as a column in Thursday’s New York Times gave a scathing review of the sisters’ NYC boutique store Dash.

“Dash is a fashion desert, just oodles of drippy cowl necks and embellished cap sleeves and synthetic fibers,” said the article. “Clothes are essentially split into two categories of fit: vacuum-sealed and hot-air balloon.”

The writer Jon Caramanica then added that the overpriced clothes, including an animal print dress for $308 and a hat for $430, seemed questionable at best. “You could wear this look, in the same way you could hire an enthusiastic 5-year-old as your stylist.” Ouch.

And finally, Khloe Kardashian is coming under fire for some comments she made during her recent appearance on Lopez Tonight. “They basically are just raping you in public,” Khloe, 26, complained comparing the airport patdowns to rape. “I got asked the other day, do you want to go for a screening or get padded down,” the reality star said. “I don’t want that X-Ray to see everything, honey!”

According to RadarOnline, victims’ right advocate groups are very unhappy with Khloe’s comments. “I think it was an ill-informed thing for her to say, “ said Jazmin Robles, a community education coordinator with the Santa Barbara Rape Crisis Center,. “It was a very strong comment to make because rape is defined as ‘forceful penetration’ and a lot of young women look up to celebrities like the Kardashians.”

Alexis Neiers

A major break for E! reality star Alexis Neiers.

Following her arrest on Dec. 1 for possession of heroin, the Pretty Wild star was in court yesterday during which she admitted violating her probation terms. If you recall, Alexis, 19, was placed on probation earlier this year for burglarizing Orlando Bloom’s house after serving a 1 month sentence.

Alexis was however able to dodge a bullet as a L.A. County Superior Court judge ordered her to spend one year in a drug treatment program instead of jail.

According to TMZ, Alexis will spend one year in a live-in drug treatment program, with the judge warning her this was the “last time we’re going to have this conversation.”

Episode 8 of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills airing tonight on Bravo at 10/9c.

On the new episode titled ‘Charity Cases,’ Kyle’s seemingly idyllic marriage is challenged when the couple debate about taking the children along on a romantic excursion to Napa Valley for a charity bike race. The charity theme continues when Taylor reflects on a past charity poker tournament. It’s also in the cards that a twist in Camille’s marriage will come to light.

Meanwhile, while it seems 99.9899% of Bravo fans hate Camille Grammer, she still appears to have the support of some of her fellow housewives.

Following the news that her soon to be ex-husband Kelsey Grammer, 55, got engaged to his mistress girlfriend Kayte Walsh, 29, Lisa Vanderpump took to her twitter page to air out her feelings.

“Kelsey Grammer engaged?….did I miss something? Don’t you think you should get divorced first?” tweeted Lisa. She then added: “Just take one step at a time…like a game of chess,that way fewer mistakes and no regrets.”

Also on Team Camille is her good friend and co-star Taylor Armstrong. In an interview with PEOPLE magazine, Taylor spoke highly of Camille. “She’s a very strong woman and she’s going to be fine,” said Taylor. “She’s doing a fantastic job of managing everything, and she’s surrounded by people who care about her.”

And when it comes to Camille, 41, dating again, Taylor added that Camille isn’t ready for that yet. “She needs a little more time,” said Taylor. “Right now, Camille just wants to spend time with her kids. Dating would take her away from them, and I don’t think she’s ready for that.” Wondering how Camille will get to spend quality time with her kids with 4 nannies in tow.

Camille has stated in a past interview that she believes Kelsey got her to do the show so that he could cheat while in New York. “Looking back, maybe he wanted to keep me preoccupied in California while he was off having his affair in New York…I think [Real Housewives] was more Kelsey’s agenda,” she told the NY Post back in October.

Watch What Happens Live – The guests tonight will include Taylor Armstrong and Denise Richards.

Another milestone for Bravo’s biggest Housewives’ success story as Bethenny Frankel graces the January cover of Redbook magazine. Who shot the cover you asked? None other than Gilles Bensimon, ex-husband of Bethenny’s former costar Kelly Bensimon.

UsWeekly published excerpts from Bethenny’s interview with the mag, in which she admits her past bad habits. “I used to get drunk and binge on everything in the deli, and then do a juice fast or starve, then do it all over again,” the 40-year-old Bethenny Getting Married star shares.

And when it comes to staying in shape during and after her pregnancy with 6-month old daughter Bryn Hoppy, Bethenny reveals she was determined to not overeat “out of emotion.” She explains, “Most people treat pregnancy like the big binge, and then they can’t take the excess weight off so they go on a crash diet.”

So is baby #2 in the works for Bethenny? “I would love to have a second child, and it’s not something I have time to wait for,” she says. “You really experience your biological clock if you’re my age.”

With the second season of her Bravo spin-off show (now titled Bethenny Ever After) in the works, Bethenny is glad her Real Housewives of NYC days are long behind her.

“I’m completely done with women being rewarded for bad behavior,” she says of her former castmates. “I don’t bite the hand that feeds me, and I’m very grateful to Bravo, but thank God I got out of that alive. It was fun the first season. Then it got not fun, and then it got scary and unhealthy and disgusting.”

In other Bethenny news, her mom Bernadette Birk is once again slamming her in the press. In a new interview with the HollywoodLife, Bernadette accuses Bethenny of purposely doing badly on Skating With The Stars. “Bethenny has always had an agenda,” Bernadette says adding that Bethenny has been skating almost all of her life. “She couldn’t be that clumsy if she tried! And this is a person that lived on skates as a child.”

Bethenny is one of the three reality stars gracing January’s cover of Redbook ((on newsstands December 21). The other two reality stars are Top Chef’s Padma Lakshmi and Biggest Loser’s Alison Sweeney. More photos of Bethenny in the mag below, including a photo with baby Bryn.

In what can only be described as a major burn, a rep for Alex Rodriguez is now publicly denying any claims/reports of a romance or flirting between Alex and Kelly Bensimon.

This all stems from a report that magically found its way in the NYPost on Tuesday. The report not only claimed Alex was heavily flirting with the Real Housewives of New York City star, it also alleged they went on a date the next day.

“The whole story about Kelly and A-Rod is absolute, unadulterated hogwash,” his rep tells UsWeekly. “There were 1,500 people at that party at Wall, and Kelly was one of many that were clamoring to meet him,” a source added.

Ouch, but the burns did not end there. Another insider close to the pro baseball player added that Kelly “is not exactly his material,” calling their meeting “an accidental collision at a party.”

Seems like A-Rod’s on-again, off-again girlfriend Cameron Diaz has nothing to worry about.

In other Kelly news, she also makes an appearance in the latest issue of In Touch magazine during which she tells the mag she wants some feminine curves. “I don’t want to be a stick figure,” she said. “I want to look like a woman.” Judging from her latest bikini photos, she has a long way to go. A scan of the In Touch story is below.

And just for old times sake, below are some tweets made by Kelly within the last 48 hours -

“gotta run, and do my head stand. its gonna be a crazy day, i need to be prepared.”

#ifIHadSuperPowers i’d erase the ability to be mean.”

The last tweet was likely made in reference to the UsWeekly story as it was posted after the story was published.

Are they or aren’t they planning to get married?

Just 2 months after admitting she and fiance Roberto Martinez had put the breaks on their wedding planning, Ali Fedotowsky is now saying the opposite in a new interview.

The former Bachelorette star tells UsWeekly that she and Roberto, her fiance of seven months, almost exchanged quickie vows in Las Vegas recently.  “I was like, ‘Maybe we should just go with them and get married,” Ali, 26, said. “But it would probably upset a few people.”  By them, she is referring to Bachelor couple Jason and Molly Mesnick who were in Vegas to renew their wedding vows for their 10 month anniversary. Yes, their ’10-month’ anniversary.

Despite axing the Vegas quickie wedding idea, it seems Ali is now planning for a 2011 wedding. “I’ve been looking at a lot of wedding things and I’m always like, ‘That looks tacky.’” Ali adds that “maybe it’s just the ones I’ve seen are really matchy, matchy,” she told US. “I kind of want to make it a little different. Very light and air, I guess, is my theme.”

Ali also knows who will be in her wedding party. “My sister, his sister definitely,” said Ali. “And then I have a couple good friends in my life. I definitely have some in mind.”
