According to the DailyBeast, all 12 episodes of the first season have been shot, including the one that shows the infamous party crash. And the DailyBeast confirms what we have suspected all along, that it would be practically impossible for Bravo to edit out the Salahis as they had been filming for months, before their infamous party crashing incident.
The DC series is expected to debut in July, right after the Real Housewives of New Jersey, and yes the Bravo cameras were on hand to capture the party crashing moment.
A source close to the series reveals that Bravo executives were more than relieved to learn the Salahis wouldn’t be prosecuted, though the incident did cause presidential Social Secretary Desiree Rogers to lose her job.
Bravo is apparently trying to keep this story under wraps for moment. The Salahis are however expected to do an interview with Today Show’s Matt Lauer on May 27.

We also get to see the birth of Teresa’s fourth daughter, the debut of Danielle’s daughter, Christine Staub, on the catwalk at New York Fashion show, plus a trip by most of the women to Venice, Italy. Oh yeah, there are also stripper poles, police officers, and some boxing.
The first being that the Jeff Beitzel Memorial Fund, a memorial fund she created on behalf of her late fiance Jeff Beitzel, does not exist. Gretchen had also previously said all the proceeds from her song, “Nothing Without You,” would go to Jeff’s memorial fund. However some readers had accused the OC star of making up the memorial fund, citing they could not find much information on it. This is what Gretchen had to say about that on her Facebook page -
“I want to address a ridiculous rumor being posted. The Jeff Beitzel Memorial Fund is with the Leukemia Soceity in O.C.! People can make donations 2 this fund directly by writing “For the Jeff Beitzel Memorial Fund”, Just as the proceeds from my song will be donated 2 this same fund! Someone stating that it doesn’t exist is ignorant, direspectful, and incorrect! People should stop spreading false & malicious rummors.”
Evidently Gretchen does not believe in spell check. We also reported this week that Gretchen had mysteriously taken down her make-up website citing sold out inventory, though this happened just days after certain readers pointed out that some of Gretchen’s make up products were identical to that listed on Ladyburd.com, a make-up manufacturer website. Gretchen posted the following regarding her make-up website -
“Wow! Gretchen CHristine Beaute completely sold out of 3 months stock in just 3 weeks! Thanks to everyone for your support! We have reordered everything and are anxiously awaiting more product so we can continue to take your future orders! Thanks for the support of Gretchen Christine Beaute! www.shopgretchenchristine.com”

Kim gave an exclusive interview to Life&Style magazine in which she admits she is bisexual. She also appears on this week’s cover of the magazine.
This is all the more interesting considering Kim denied having a romantic relationship with DJ Tracy just this month, even telling numerous media outlets that she was back with the still married Big Poppa aka Lee Najjar.
According to Kim, the reason she lied about denied her relationship with DJ Tracy was because she wasn’t ready to come out. We can only hope Tracy is well aware of Kim’s pathological ways.
Excerpts from Kim’s interview with Life&Style is below -
L&S: Can you pinpoint the moment when things became romantic? Kim: There were sparks, but [physically] it was a gradual situation. Tracy made the first move. Our first kiss was passionate and exciting.
L&S: Were you ever tempted to deny your relationship with Tracy? Kim: No. I’ve never denied anything. I don’t lie. I’m not embarrassed by anything I’ve ever done in my life. But I wasn’t ready to discuss it when the story broke. I hadn’t even had the chance to talk to my family about it. It was so unfair.
L&S: Do you feel you’re giving a voice to other bisexual parents? Kim: I’m among the millions of parents who have been in a gay or lesbian relationship. It hasn’t been an easy road lately, but I feel there are no mistakes in my life. Everything happens for a reason. To have the opportunity to speak for myself and to have people understand what I’m going through is really special. I myself was confused and scared at first. Being able to speak from my heart and get this all out, it’s a huge relief for me.

RadarOnline reported that Gretchen was served with legal papers in the middle of a fashion show. The man behind this is Jay Photoglou, the legal papers apparently has to do with Gretchen not paying the $18,000 that was awarded to him by a Judge.
In other news, Gretchen’s make up line – Gretchen Christine Beaute seems to now be defunct. First a commenter on this site posted that the make up she was selling on her site was identical (down to the names and colors) to that on LadyBurd.com, which happens to be a manufacturer for make-up. Gretchen’s site had the same exact photos and names for her eyeshadow collection. She never even bothered to change the names of the shades.
This might not seem like a big deal, but it does in this case because Gretchen was shown on the TV show consulting with her makeup artist pretending to come up coming up with the colors and shades for her make up line, when in reality she was just reselling the already made products.
Days after this hit the web, Gretchen’s site started showing her products as being sold out, until she finally took down the site, posting the following – “Gretchen Christine Beaute is in the process of adding some additional website enhancements…please be patient with us while we make these improvements.”
She also posted the following on her twitter – “Adding new enhancements to Gretchen Christine Beaute’s website this week! Lots to work on after our soft launch a month ago!” So now, it was simply a “soft launch.”
And finally some of her customers to her facebook to complain. Apparently, the paypal payment option was in Slade Smiley’s name, meaning the make up payments were going into Slade’s paypal account. Not sure why this was a problem, but it seems some of her fans hate Slade so much, to the point that they would rather the money not go into his paypal account.
However E! Online has now been able to officially confirm the entire cast. The biggest surprise would have to be Camille Grammer, wife of popular actor Kelsey Grammer. And as we previously reported, Paris Hilton’s aunts — Kyle Richards and Kim Richards — are also a part of the cast.
The above photo was taken when the cast attended a Lakers vs. Kings game last week.
So will these Beverly Hills be able to give us the drama we are used to? Well the jury still seems to be out on that as a source tells E! News, “Everyone seems very happy to be on the show. They are all really very nice. Lisa is hilarious. She has that dry, British humor.” It seems the Beverly Hills ladies are about to take the Housewives franchise into Hollywood.
PHOTOS AND BRIEF BIOS OF EACH OF THE LADIES IS BELOW -
Camille Grammer – 41-year-old former Playboy model and married to Frasier star Kelsey Grammer for 13 years. The Hollywood couple have a 9-year-old daughter, Mason, and a 6-year-old son, Jude.
Adrienne Maloof-Nassif – is no stranger to plastic surgery judging from the above photo. The 48-year-old is a member of the popular Maloof family which owns everything from the Palms to the Sacramento Kings. She is married to Dr. Paul Nassif, a plastic surgeon who has appeared on multiple episodes of E!’s Dr. 90210.

Life & Style magazine also reported that Bethenny and her fiance Jason Hoppy will be getting married on March 28, which is next Sunday. With the wedding so close, Bethenny reveals she still has a lot of planning to do. “I have to get through the planning — there are a lot of details that I don’t really have time for.”
Bethenny also gushes about her fiance Jason, “Jason’s the most supportive man. He’ll be Mr. Mom. I’ll come home, and he’ll be reading What to Expect When You’re Expecting. I’ll ask, ‘How big is the baby? Let me know when it’s the size of a watermelon.’ He’s amazing.”
The question on everyone’s mind seems to be which of her co-stars will be in attendance? As it has been widely publicized, Bethenny has feuded quite a bit with some of her fellow housewives. New housewife on the block, Jennifer Gilbertrevealed to HollywoodLife that “I know Jill Zarin, Kelly Bensimon and Countess LuAnn de Lesseps are not going.” Jennifer continued, “I know Ramona is going, but I don’t know if anyone else is going.” Jennifer also confirms she wasn’t invited.
Bethenny has declined to talk about which housewives will be attending her wedding. She also denied a NYPost story that claimed she moved up her wedding date just so it could be televised. “I find it so funny,” Bethenny told Zap2it. “You don’t have to be Angela Lansbury to figure out if my show is called ‘Bethenny Getting Married,’ that maybe there might be a wedding on the show. If it was called “Bethenny’s Climbing a Mountain,” hopefully I would arrange to be on a mountain.”
And there you have it, Bethenny will be tying the knot this Sunday.
Bethenny, who is now 7 months pregnant, spoke to UsWeekly and revealed she has no regrets when it comes to her words and actions regarding Jill.
“I don’t regret anything I’ve said,” she told UsWeekly Tuesday at the NYC premiere of The Bounty Hunter. “If she’s saying that I told her she needs to get a hobby, then that’s accurate. That’s what I said. I don’t regret anything I’ve said.”
So will two will ever reconcile? “I tried to establish relationships under a microscope and it didn’t work,” Frankel explains. “Most of my friends I’ve had for 20 years, so meeting all the housewives and trying to form lasting relationships is challenging.” As for Jill, “That one is no exception.”
When asked who was the better singer between her fellow housewives — Kim Zolciak and LuAnn De Lesseps — Bethenny shared, “I think LuAnn is a better singer but Kim is a better performer. Kim is so fiery. She really puts on a show. Their styles are different. We’ll see if LuAnn blossoms with it.”
Thoughts – Last night’s episode was pretty good. While I’m not particularly Team anyone when it comes to Bethenny and Jill, I do think it was very telling that Jill would save Bethenny’s voicemail and play it for others, especially three months after the fact. That said a lot about her in my opinion.
