I don’t mean to be a broken record, but could VH1 be any more obvious? Hair-pulling bar fights are now tempered with a “non-violent” episode. How stupid do you think I am, VH1? Well, last night’s Mob Wives Chicago had no violence, but just wait till next week! The women b*tched and moaned about one another, but there was thankfully no slapping or hair tugging. I am at a loss for words.
Nora Schweihs welcomes Pia Rizza in for a glass or three of wine. Nora is reliving Renee Fecarotta Russo‘s attack. Pia is upset that Nora still wants a friendship with Renee. Nora’s account of the pair’s fight is much different from what I watched, but apparently Nora thinks she was the instigator and the stronger fighter of the two. Nora makes the mistake of telling Pia that she’d rather strip than worry about Renee. Pia laughs at the comparison, but she doesn’t call out Nora on her verbal ridiculousness. I mean, after all, Pia is dancing. All the time. On a pole.
The tempestuous battle between Teresa Giudice andJacqueline Laurita is raging on and on with the ladies using their Bravo blogs as burn books. Two weeks ago, following an episode where the two had an explosive argument, The Real Housewives of New Jersey star lambasted Teresa for speaking out about her ex-husband Matt Holmes‘ legal issues.
“Right after Teresa and I started fighting, the story about my ex-husband suspiciously leaked all over the press. It was an unfortunate situation because, in the end, after my ex passed a few lie detector tests, the FBI dropped the investigation against him. What had originally led to his arrest had been lies started by a fired, disgruntled ex-employee/nanny of his who they found out has a history of being corrupt, including having lived under nine different aliases.”
“My ex-husband, Matt Holmes, and his wife, Jody, are INNOCENT! Teresa knew the deal (contrary to how she made it sound), yet when the heat was on her, she conveniently tried to put the heat on someone else. Deflection and projection are her specialty. This is what she does. She has a history of blaming others for the exact thing that SHE is guilty of doing.”
Well, well… it seems our Bethenny Frankel has done made herself a talk show star! Rumors have been circulating that Bethenny’s show will be locked in for the Fox 2013 nationally syndicated fall line-up. Which would mean all y’all can tune in to the “R-rated Oprah,” a legend in her own mind.
However a rep for Fox told the Hollywood Reporter that fans shouldn’t jump to conclusions just yet! “A decision has not yet been made,” a Fox TV spokesperson announced on Friday. Execs are waiting until the full six-week test run completes before making a decision on the direction of Bethenny’s show longterm. But things are looking good for Bethenny. Very good.
Bethenny has had the most successful summer test run this year and is the most successful test since Wendy Williams in 2008. And Bethenny’s numbers are even higher than Wendy’s were back in the day.
Uh-Oh… is there a feud of the wives brewing on the horizon? Jessica Canseco and Andrea Kelly, the stars of Hollywood Exes, are speaking out about how the Real Housewives franchise is all about drama – and NOT about friendship! Well, duh!
“We need to support each other as women rather than beating each other up,” Jessicatold RadarOnline. And she says that’s the difference between their show and other reality shows with “wives” in the title.
“It is absolutely a different message to other reality shows where the women are not even friends and they end up hating each other,” Andrea added. “Why would anyone want to bring somebody down?” she asked. Oh, I dunno – Ratings, money, contracts, endorsement deals… I could go on.
Quick! Somebody call the press! Oh, wait…I am pretty sure cameras were there to capture something that we have never, ever seen in the history of Bravo–or, more specifically, the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills franchise. To what am I referring? You may want to sit down. You’re certainly going to need a minute to recoup. And you’re most definitely not going to believe me.
Here it is…this year, on Sunday, July 1st, Kyle “Table Splits” Richards hosted her annual White Party. She’s quite the Diddy, you know. Anyhoo, (are you sitting down?) word on the pearly white streets is that there was no drama, I repeat, NO DRAMA at said party this year. I know. I am as shocked as you are. Take a moment. I believe the first year we were introduced to Kyle’s White Party, she yelled at a woman for hitting on her husband. Not shockingly, Camille Grammer also showed up with a snarky etiquette book for her former nemesis. Of course, who can forget last year, when Taylor and Russell Armstrong after Russell threatened to sue Lisa Vanderpump? White party = drama. Always.
It’s an interview only Phaedra Parks could give. I mean, you saw her ballet themed baby shower and her pickle inspired photo shoot, right? In a sit-down with PaperMag.com, the Real Housewives of Atlanta reality TV star discusses everything from funerals to being dressed by servants in Ghana. I swear, the things that come out of this woman’s mouth are something else, but because it’s Phaedra, it’s totally hilarious. She dishes on wardrobe changes during a funeral (not hers, the corpses!) and the Georgia Supreme Court attending her wedding to Apollo Nida, because, you know, she’s such Atlanta society. Loves it! It’s a really long interview, so I’ve posted the highlights below, but I encourage you to read the entire thing here. It’s worth your time! Oh, Phaedra!

Our favorite reality TV stars can’t get enough of the spotlight during their regularly scheduled time slots, so they take to Twitter to share even more with us. And we love them for it! Here’s a roundup of some of our favorite photos from the Twitterverse this week! Enjoy!
Well, Slade is again protesting against reports that he is a jobless deadbeat dad! Speaking to WetPaint, Slave says the allegations hurt his feelings and simply aren’t true.
“I was in real estate,” Slade says of his career pre-Housewives, “I was technically a consultant.” But NOW, oh but NOW, he runs Grayson Entertainment, a company which puts together endorsement deals for celebrities. Doesn’t he mean puts together endorsement deals for ONE pseudo-celebrity who goes by the stage name of Gretchen Christine?
