First, Lisa explains why Ken was present at “their” dinner, “The trip was initiated by the invitation presented to us by Bella Magazine, to Ken and I, a celebration of the cover, and things escalated from there, as I asked the other ladies to join us. That is why Ken was at the dinner.”
Besides being a stunner, who knew Gigi Hadid could burn in the kitchen but in a good way! Gigi, who is the daughter of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills‘ Yolanda Foster, competed on the Fox show, MasterChef Celebrity Showdown on Monday night and won a whopping $25,000. What made the win even more delicious for the supermodel was that the monies she won will be donated to a cause that is very personal to her, Lyme disease. The ailment is one that has not only stricken her mom Yolanda but younger siblings, Anwarand Bella as well.
Gigi, who loves to cook and is a self-proclaimed foodie, competed against Victoria’s Secret model Devon Windsor whose dish, squid ink spaghetti with shrimp also won praises. But it was Gigi’s signature ‘Gigi Burger’ made with a special sauce, cheese, pickled jalapenos, salt, five spice and crispy onions that won the judges over hands down. Even though the supermodel strictly adheres to a healthy lifestyle in order to stay fit, she always makes room for a good hamburger. As a matter of fact, the 20-year-old’s mantra is “eat clean to stay fit and eat a burger to stay sane.” The show’s main judge is the famous no-nonsense chef Gordan Ramsay and when he sampled Gigi’s creation he didn’t mince words stating, “Gigi your burger is f**king delicious!”
“Lisa Rinna is someone I’ve known for over 20 years, and although we hadn’t kept in contact over time, she’s always someone I enjoy running into,” Kathryn shared. “Her energy and humor are in a league of their own, so of course I was happy to see her at Lisa Vanderpump‘s charity event. What I wasn’t happy about was that the first thing out of her mouth was O.J.… Really? If that is what you think when you see me, I guess I haven’t made much of any impression on you. Besides, I don’t think Rinna ever saw me once with O.J., but whatever. I will give her new memories.” How refreshing is her attitude?!
On her renewed friendship with Cynthia, “When someone betrays you, it damages your trust and that’s a very hard thing to get past. People who know me know that I move on! I don’t try to fix broken pieces, although that was probably a bad thing. I’m a work in progress. It took a lot of prayer and long talks from loved ones in order for me to forgive and really do this with an open heart. So I felt like I was in a really good place in my life where I could start over with Cynthia and reconnect. I’m happy I did!”
What are these women thinking? That’s the one question that played on a constant loop in my mind as I watched last night’s Mob Wives. A Hamptons vacation will never class up this group of gals. Carla Facciolo has planned a nice weekend for her friends (as we know Drita D’avanzo is absent), and she hopes that newbies Brittany Fogarty and Marissa Jade don’t show out at her friends’ garden party. If they dare to embarrass her in front of her shi-shi Hamptons crowd, Carla swears (and swears) that she’ll kill them herself. Both Marissa and Brittany claim to have called a truce while Prissy Missy (haha!) gripes to Renee Graziano and Brittany complains to Big Ang. In order to get everyone on the same page, Big Ang decides her crew needs to get up close and personal with Patron. Marissa, once again, admonishes the clique’s drinking habits, but she can’t say no and is falling all over herself. Thankfully, no asses are capped or hair is pulled.

With every Real Housewives franchise comes one (insufferable) housewife who appoints herself head bitch in charge. On Real Housewives of Potomac, that one is Karen Huger, who spent the premiere preaching about etiquette.
“I was taught as a child that proper etiquette would serve me well in life,” Karen says, “and it has. If I care about you and I feel your conduct is inappropriate, as a friend I will gently point you in the right direction.” (disguised as a gift)
In the interest of damage control, Scheana shared on Instagram, “Please try to remember this was in July and a lot has changed and happened since then. So before people jump to conclusions, I want to say that Ariana’s mom reached out to me first. I responded to a concerned mother about my best friend. That’s all. I would never reach out first nor would I ever do anything to intentionally to hurt them. Also, the texts mentioned were exchanged in early December 2014 to give you some perspective. A time when Tom and I were not in a good place.”
