Watch What Happens Live - Season 12

Sonja Morgan is so happy that her life is wonderful and therefore she doesn’t have to resort to trash-talking her friends behind their backs. And since Sonja thinks everything is hunky-dory, so should we! 

Beginning with the scene at Ramona Singer‘s birthday party, Sonja was disappointed to see her fellow Real Housewives Of New York stars badmouthing her (and her businesses and her mental health) behind her back. After all, even though Bethenny Frankel has been visiting a therapist since the dawn of civilization to deal with her not anger anger, she’s no doctor and neither is anyone else! 

Sonja begins by complaining that was nice to Heather Thomson even though Heather was “talking badly about my business behind my back,” but it is Carole Radziwill that she’s truly upset by. “What was with Heather’s BFF Carole knocking my consultations with a psychopharmacologist? Carole isn’t a doctor, and I don’t know why she thinks that she knows what’s in the best medical interest for me.” Yeah – we’re talking about a woman who willingly ingested testosterone for an “experiment.” 


Duggar Family TLC

TLC announced this afternoon that it’s pulling all episodes of 19 Kids and Counting in the wake of the Josh Duggar molestation scandal.  Mama June is probably a little sad she has to put that lawsuit on hold…possibly. 

TLC isn’t exactly saying that they’re canceling the show, just that they’re pulling the episodes off the air. “Effective immediately, TLC has pulled all episodes of 19 Kids And Counting currently from the air. We are deeply saddened and troubled by this heartbreaking situation, and our thoughts and prayers are with the family and victims at this difficult time.”  They didn’t give any further info about the status of the show.

We have another roundup of reality star sightings to kick off your holiday weekend.  Kyle Richards, Kris Jenner and Faye Resnick enjoyed a couples night out together, grabbing dinner at Craig’s in West Hollywood with their significant others.  Is it just me that saw that floor and wanted to play some old school Q-Bert?

OK! held their second So Sexy event this month – this time in Los Angeles.  Shahs of Sunset stars GG, MJ and Shervin were in attendance for that one, along with Erica Mena, Farrah Abraham, Big Ang and more. 

Yesterday reality stars celebrated Red Nose Day – Kenya Moore, Brandi Glanville, Kyle Richards and more posed with their red noses for the big charity event. 

 Check out all of the fun reality star sightings below!


Chris Manzo and his brother Albie Manzo are hoping to follow in their father and uncle’s footsteps and add to the family restaurant business. The brothers opened Little Town three-years-ago, but then opted to move the restaurant to a more social atmosphere, opening an Ainsworth Hoboken franchise in the original location while relocating Little Town to another section of Hoboken. After renovations, the Manzo’d With Children stars have re-opened Little Town… just while the Bravo cameras are rolling, of course – and everything is going great!

“The opening was a blast!” Chris shares. “We had a packed house and everyone had a great time. Anyone willing to take a night out of their busy schedules to celebrate the grand opening with us is a special guest, so yes, there were plenty of them.”

Vicki Gunvalson is no stranger to going under the knife. Since she began appearing on Real Housewives Orange County, in addition to Botox and fillers, Vicki has gotten a tummy tuck, liposuction, a nose job, a chin implant and a boob job – and she might be ready for more if that’s what it takes!

“I want to look as best I can, so if it takes plastic surgery, dieting, working out or whatever, I will do it,” Vicki asserts. Part of the problem for Vicki is that television makes her hyper-aware of her appearance … it does… and she feels there is a constant pressure to keep things looking good. 


2015 NBC Universal Cable Entertainment Upfront

Hey Mama! Holla! Heather Thomson not only begins her Bravo blog with these dusty old Heatherisms this week; she spends a full paragraph defending them. That is, before she moves on to defending her good friend Carole Radziwill’s relationship with Adam, which has become a rather tiresome storyline on this season of Real Housewives of New York.  Heather begins, “Holla! I have nicknames for everyone. It’s really just a term of endearment, and a way I like to connect with people. ‘Holla’ and ‘mama’ are part of my heritage. I’ve been using those terms for as long as I can remember,” she explains. As long as she can remember? Yes, indeed. 1993 called and wants its catchphrase back. Heather goes on to dive deeper into the riveting origins of “Holla.”  “Holla actually came about on the show when a producer asked me for a ‘Heatherism’ to add to the end of my tagline. ‘Holla!’ naturally flowed out of me as a positive shout-out, and it stuck. I’ve never tried to be anything or anyone I’m not. I’m all about being positive and trying to build people up, rather than tear them down, and that’s what holla represents for me.” 

Now that her Girl Scouts of America speech about the deep cultural and personal relevance of “Holla” is over, we can move on to an equally interesting topic: Carole’s love life! Heather says, “I’m happy for Carole. She’s excited about someone, and it’s because of chemistry! You can’t hide a chemistry that magnetic. It’s exciting to see your friends find happiness. I believe Luann [de Lesseps], at least the one I thought I knew, meant it when she said she was happy for Carole, too. Unfortunately, she’s changed her tune on that.” 


Bruce Jenner

The reality TV viewer numbers are in – and it’s another win for the Kardashian-Jenner clan. The two-night Keeping Up with the Kardashians special About Bruce attracted 2.915 million on Sunday and 2.554 million on Monday. The week was also good for Kandi’s Ski Trip, which garnered 1.457 million viewers, and Love & Hip Hop Atlanta, which logged 3.124 million viewers.

Not nearly as lucky in the viewers department were Real Housewives of New York, Million Dollar Listing New York, and Shahs of Sunset – the RHONY slipped down to 1.089 million, Million Dollar Listing New York continued its downward spiral with just 750,000 bothering to watch this week, and only 1.077 million watched the much-hyped, super-sized Shahs of Sunset. Check out the list below to see how the rest of your favorite shows fared the week.
