If we've learned anything from the ladies of Real Housewives of New Jersey, it's that blood is thicker than water…unless, of course, one of your family members refuses to hate on the same person you despise or tries to write a better cookbook with family recipes. Then, all bets are off! Basically, blood is thicker than water until someone tries to show up your sketchy accomplishments. It's funny really. When someone in my family succeeds, my first instinct is to be proud and supportive. I clearly have a lot to learn from Teresa Giudice, et al.
While she's not necessarily the biggest cheerleader for some of her family counterparts, Teresa will always stand by her man. And, let's be honest, Juicy Joe needs her. His drivers license hangs in the balance. That's serious, y'all!
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 of their daily lives with us. And we love them for it! Here’s a roundup of some of our favorite photos from the Twitterverse this week! Enjoy!
Kim Kardashian is trying to get a little stress relief in Brazil this weekend. Kimmie is vacationing with baby daddy Kanye West and struck a pose in front of the Christ the Redeemer statue in Rio De Janeiro.

"To all of my friends, family, and now tv fans I want to publicly & sincerely apologize for the trashy violent mess on television. It's embarrassing & utterly sickening to see violence being promoted on television. It was NOT what I signed up for, nor what I stand for, and certainly not what I expected to be a victim of ever in my life," Ashleewrote. "Please accept my apology for this behavior and contributing to tearing down our society by being a part of such shenanigans."
Kahdijiha's aunt Sabrina Brie Rowetweeted to Ashlee, "The only crime here was U got into a fight that you started #NotAttacked" and "My family believes 100% in nonviolence as well! If someone touch U first & being racist it's call defending yourself #DONE!"
I agree. Ashlee picked a fight… insulting her, poking her, grabbing her… and then cried victim when Kahdijiha reacted. The only "trashy violent mess" I saw is the one pictured above.
Whoooa nelly! Whomever sold Heather Dubrow's lavish Orange County mansion landed quite the commission check!
The Real Housewives of Orange County star unloaded her fully-customized, stunning mansion (which includes a fireplace in one of the master bathrooms) for a whopping $16.45 million!
AOL Real Estate reveals the home was never publicly listed and sold through private sale in December. Heather and Terry purchased the gorgeous property, which overlooks the ocean, in 2004 for $3.3 million and spent an additional $7 million constructing the house from scratch.
First up, Phaedratells OK! that she has only put on a paltry 11lbs as she rounds out her second trimester and her doctors only expect her to gain 15-16lbs total by the end of her pregnancy! Huh? Is she even eating for one? "It's a little low," Phaedra concedes, "but I'm sure the baby will be healthy."
"I'm very busy: I'm a full-time student, full-time mom, have a law firm, work in a funeral home, I'm involved in the community, have a husband… So you know, I really don't have have time to think about food as much as some people. I live to work, not live to eat."
