Million Dollar Listing New York star Fredrik Eklund shared the heartbreaking news this morning that their surrogate suffered a miscarriage.  Fredrik poured out his heart in a raw Instagram message. 

For weeks now our writer Melissa was convinced that Derek Kaplan and Fredrik were hinting that they were expecting twins, and it turns out she was right.  Fredrik shared that news in his post this morning when he opened up about their loss.   Fredrik wrote, “I’m sad to share we’ve had a failed pregnancy. I have cried so much that I can’t cry anymore. We were pregnant with twins but we’re not anymore.” 

Dancing with the Stars premiere

A ballroom full of sequins, spandex, and semi stars… it must be Dancing with the Stars season! We’re watching and rooting for (for better or worse) two of our own, Braxton Family Values star Tamar Braxton (the better) and Don’t Be Tardy star Kim Zolciak (the worse).

When asked why she joined Dancing with the Stars, Tamar says, “After I had my baby, I kind of slowed down a bit and I just wanna put a pep in my step.” In rehearsal, Tamar and Val Chmerkovskiy are having fun together. Tamar says Val’s like an annoying little brother, adding, “Val and I are both outspoken <side eye>, but I’m happy to have the current champion as my partner.”

Tamar and Val dance the Quickstep to “Do Your Thing” by Basement Jaxx. The choreography is no joke – very courageous for week one – but Tamar nails it. So far, I think Tamar is the total package – spunky personality, good work ethic, and killer moves. Check out the video below.

Kudos to The Real Housewives of New Jersey star Joe Giudice for keeping things as normal and happy as he can for his daughters while Teresa remains in prison.  And to Melissa and Joe Gorga for putting aside past issues and helping out, too.  The family gathered together this week to celebrate Audriana Giudice’s sixth birthday. 

Melissa Gorga shared the photo above, showing of Audriana’s many balloons and two cakes (plus cupcakes!).  One of those cakes was of course a Frozen-themed one!  Melissa wrote, “Happy birthday Beautiful Audriana  we love you so much…”

Meghan Goes Too Far on RHOC

Confusing times on Real Housewives Of Orange County! Brooks makes me suspicious, yet Meghan Edmonds makes me equally suspicious. Whose motive is weirder?! I love a mystery – Veronica Mars is my favorite show, but Meghan makes amateur private investigators everywhere look psycho. 

Brooks Ayers is a professional liar, smooth as snake oil and slathering it on Vicki Gunvalson as the serum of youth. Meghan is a two-bit phony, but she has two luxuries: Time and Vendetta (and internet access). This will not end well. 

Things begin with Meghan meeting Heather Dubrow and Shannon for dinner. Everyone gets along now because Shannon saw the light that Meghan is always right (AKA, get along well enough to talk ish about Vicki).

Ladies of London season 2

We might be a bit late, but RT is now officially here to recap season two of Ladies of London! Considering this season was filmed nearly a year ago, it seems we’re not the only ones running late (what’s up with that, Bravo?). Nevertheless, the ladies are back, minus Caprice Bourret and Noelle Reno. But fresh faces (and royal titles!) appear in the form of Baroness Caroline Fleming, long time friend of Caroline Stanbury, and former “friend” of the cast, Viscountess Julie Montagu

The addition of fancy titles does not seem to offer fancier storylines, however, as this season began with the unbelievably pedestrian argument about where to eat a turkey. Last week saw tensions reach a boiling point between fellow Americans Juliet Angus and Marissa Hermer, with Caroline S stuck (or should we say, sticking herself?) in the middle, over what an American Thanksgiving should mean, where it should be held, who should attend, and how to attach one’s birthday to the holiday for a little extra helping of holiday guilt! As a fellow Sagittarius whose own birthday falls squarely on Thanksgiving day this year – and does so every four years – I have come to the understanding that the only expectation a birthday girl over the age of 10 can hope for on Turkey Day is a tossed off “Want some pie with a candle in it?” And by now, Juliet should have learned the same. Alas, reality TV is not for learning, but for manipulating and backstabbing! So, let’s jump in right where we left off…

If last week’s premiere of Love & Hip Hop Hollywood was any indication, this season could prove to be as entertaining as its Atlanta counterpart! Sure, Ray J is no Stevie J, but Princess can fight with the best of them, Omarion is endearing, Soulja Boy is sure to be as ridiculously juvenile as last year, and can we just talk about the fact that Moniece is responsible for a Rich Dollaz crossover? Let’s not forget Miles and Milan’s love that Miles doesn’t feel comfortable sharing with friends and family…only with hundreds of thousands of VH1 viewers! Keep up the momentum, folks! 

Last night’s episode begins with a swagalicious Soulja who is in a good place with on-and-off girlfriend Nia. Like every other woman on this show, she’s quick to complain about her beau’s infidelities, but even quicker to forgive. Lil’ Fizz is working hard on a mix tape, and he’s excited to catch up with Soulja. Fizz brags about embracing the single life, and Soulja can relate (sorry, Nia). Nis is his ride-or-die chick, but when he’s on the road, he’s on the road. Soulja claims Nia is fully aware of his road chicks (is she?), and she knows she’s the only girl in his heart. Speaking of players (of the reformed variety), Rich is head over heels for Moniece. While their relationship is fairly new, both are hoping for home run. For Rich, that means, he’s planned a sexy date. For Moniece, that means she wants Rich to move to the West Coast and meet her son and spend time with her family and reverse his vasectomy (or did she say get a vasectomy? Either way…whoa). Sexy talk! After dropping those bombs, Moniece turns on the charm to get their romantic dinner back on track.

After tonight’s episode of The Real Housewives of Orange County, Tamra Barney and RHONY’s Ramona Singer were Andy’s guests on Watch What Happens Live.  The ladies talked cancer, affairs and more. 

They start off talking about different dramatic storylines this season on RHOC, so Andy asks Ramona her thoughts on several of the situations.  Andy asks Ramona what she thinks of the OC ladies not believing that Brooks Ayers has cancer.  “If he’s lying about, it’s a pretty emotionally ill thing and should call him out on it because it means he has problems.  And if he is really ill, just leave him alone.”
