Our favorite Beverly Hills restauranteur is being put through the ringer by a former employee with what Lisa Vanderpump deems a "frivolous and a clear case of malicious prosecution."
The backstory — Karina Bustillos filed a $5 million sexual assault and battery lawsuit against the Real Housewives of Beverly Hill'sLisa Vanderpump and her restaurant Villa Blanca, claiming a manager tried to kiss her, called her names and violently grabbed her wrists. A few weeks ago, TMZ reported that Lisa was willing to settle the lawsuit with the out-of-work actress — who admitted to being fired numerous times — for $40,000 — not even close to the $5 million Bustillos was demanding. At the time it looked like a settlement would not be reached and the case may go to court. But what a difference a week makes…
Ramona is doing a negligee photoshoot with her dog so Avery can hang it on her dorm wall. Right – because everyone wants a calendar of their mother in over-the-hill lingerie. Holding a dog. With crazy-eyes. You know how they always say dogs resemble their master… Sonja comes over to also take photos of herself with her dog for Avery's dorm room? She yammers on about how she's now starting a men's and women's shirt collection. Meanwhile she lets her dog drink water out of Ramona's stemware.
Sonja puts on a happy face and keeps it together – she doesn't think anyone would know from looking at her how out of control her life is. She describes herself as a cat with nine-lives (and in 8 of them she forgot to put on pants!). Oh… I dunno, when I look at Sonja, I see a trainwreck.
Melissa Gorga is following in the footsteps of some of her fellow housewives by trying on a new career hat — designer. The Real Housewives of New Jersey star is set to premiere the Melissa Gorga Collection this July on HSN.
Despite the extravagant jewelry that Melissa may flaunt in her everyday life, her pieces are meant to be affordable statement pieces that are wearable with any look. "The collection is very versatile and features high-fashion statement pieces that are trendy and take you from day to night," she told Us Weekly exclusively. "The overall tone of the collection feels like a mix of sexy and sophisticated where you can wear a piece with a blazer or a black dress and a killer heel and rock it either way."
The newbie begins her Bravo blog, "I have to say that when I started filming RHOC I knew it was not going to be 'the Shannon Beador show' — that I was going to be shown in both positive and negative lights. I also understood that despite multiple hours of filming, there would only be a few moments shown on the screen. Everyone in our family tends to joke with each other, but often times on film it doesn't appear very funny. And now for week two, I find that some of my not-so-proudest moments have been chosen to air."
When Tami Roman calls out your behavior, you must be doing something very, very wrong. The Basketball Wives star isn't known for her couth or kindness on the reality show. Instead, she's brash, aggressive, and in her co-stars' faces at every turn. It must be bad when she's dishing on someone else's issues!
Jennifer Williams left the reality hit after a physical altercation in which her former best friend Evelyn Lozada charged at her over a dining room table at the Derby…you know, normal everyday stuff. Now Jen's ex-husband has come upon hard times, and Tami feels like he's getting what he deserves.
Gretchen took to Facebook to blast Tamra for the lies she's supposedly spreading – including the claim that Gretchen and Slade Smiley were fired. Gretchen says it's completely false.
She shared, "Once again having to take time out of my day to address & deal with this persons lies and BS. As your daughter said in her tweet to you "it's getting old"." Ouch. Gretchen didn't get the memo that bringing the kids into it is never cool.
Ramona Singer is synonymous with a few things: pinot, crazy eyes, rude comments, and stirring up trouble. On last week's episode of Real Housewives of New York Ramona returned fresh from a safari with crazy ideas of treating Housewives like an anthropological experiment. Sadly for her, Andy Cohen has already done that!
In response to Ramona putting her turtle time where it does not belong,LuAnn de Lesseps is reminding her that elegance is learned! And part of having class is knowing when your opinions are not warranted.
"Ramona jumps into the Heather/Aviva fight and calls Heather [Thomson]out for not inviting Aviva [Drescher] to her tenth anniversary party," LuAnn writes in her Bravo blog. "Heather does have a history of not inviting people who she thinks are going to ruin a good time, but it's her party and she can invite whomever she wants."
