A recent report allegedly revealed the salaries of Bravo's Housewives and claimed that Jacquelineearns far less than her Real Housewives of New Jersey peers! Considering her winemouth revealed the S4 finale spoiler months before it aired and she skipped the travesty of a S3 reunion, we're inclined to believe she's not raking in the big bucks.

Things begin with Heather Dubrow and Tamra Barney meeting Lydia for lunch. Heather and Tamra are just… I dunno… their dynamic is forced to me. Maybe it's because Heather exists with this perma-bemused expression on her face and Tamra is always working too hard to seem acerbic and unaffected. In short – stop putting on airs.
They quiz Lydia on her relationship with Alexis Bellino. Which was the whole purpose of this awkward lunch; to size up Lydia and see if she was worthy of attending to. Lydia was wearing a Pretty, Pretty Princess tiara and giggling about fairy dust and oh yeah like Alexis is like so like super weird and she like changes her story like so much cause like one minute she's crying her fake eyelashes off and leaking tears of silicone over bullying and the next minute she's like a smoking rage-filled plasticine bitch ranting about how she needs to forgive cause like Jesus exists, but we're totally friends! I was confused.

Money. Communication. Sex. The first year of marriage faces multiple difficulties…and I'm guessing that having your life filmed during those initial 365 days isn't going to make things easier.

I think I'm going to really like watching Newlyweds: The First Year!

Michelle for talking smack about them in songs and on social media. Karlie hopes to enlist her friend to join her in a diss song, but Rasheeda doesn't to waste her voice on the rivalry. She'll definitely think consider it though.
Erica Dixon is getting dinner ready for Lil' Scrappy, and he's telling her about Momma Dee's ambush with Shay. Erica is not happy with this turn of events.

He seems to be a much more devoted partner to Erica this season, although VH1 really needs to consider bringing back his subtitles.
