This has been a wild, sometimes repetitive, and completely drama-filled season for the Housewives. We've seen (or at least read about) touching moments, cheating rumors, friendship rekindling, and epic brawls (but sadly only heard second hand accounts of flying sinks). We've also had a lot of off-screen drama, with the most scandalous being Teresa and Joe'sfederal indictment and the civil lawsuit brought on by the Posche 2 fight and topped off with a little book controversy.
What will season 6 bring? Andy Cohen admits that the show needs an overhaul, but who knows what that means in Andy's world. Well, let's get through season 5 first and then we'll tackle season six and all of its casting rumors!
Bethenny believed the show would catapult her out of the reality television genre and give her the opportunity to connect one-on-one with her fans. Unfortunately "fans" aren't tuning in. And she's being slaughtered in the ratings by Queen Latifah, who surprisingly turned out to be her biggest talk show rival.
"Bethenny is livid about Queen Latifah beating her – she can't believe this is happening," a source told Star Magazine (print edition). Indeed Bethenny's ratings have been slipping. Bethenny's show is averaging a .9 Nielsen rating while Queen Latifah is nabbing a healthy 1.4.
In season one of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Camille shared that her mother was fighting cancer. Now Camille's rep reveals that she was just diagnosed with early stage endometrial cancer – a cancer that effects the lining of the uterus – and opted to get a radical hysterectomy!
"She underwent a radical hysterectomy today," Camille's rep Howard Bragman told People. "The surgery went well and she is expected to make a complete recovery following a significant recuperation period."
