The mother of two revealed exclusively to HollywoodLife that she would love to bare her 47-year-old body for Playboy. “If Playboy asked I’d say ABSOLUTELY,” said Danielle. “It’s something I’d really like to do especially as a woman of 47!”
Perhaps Danielle sees this as a good opportunity to promote her new tell all autobiography – The Naked Truth, which is set to come out in May. “I feel better than ever,” she says. “I really spent most of the past year and a half connecting with myself and my kids at different levels.”
And what kind of Playboy photos would be get from Danielle? “I’d keep it super classy and really sexy,” she promises us.
Playboy, the ball is now in your court.

Perhaps realizing the public backlash, the Real Housewives of Orange County star and mother of four is now changing her tune. In a new interview with the OCRegister, Tamra denies that she and Eddie are dating or are a couple. “We’re really good friends,” she said. “I think he’s a wonderful person. He’s helped me a lot through this. If something does evolve, I’d be lucky.”
According to Tamra, she went to the Las Vegas club this past weekend with Eddie and several people, including castmate Lynne Curtin. Simon had a lot to say about running into his estranged wife and his friend. In what he called the “ultimate betrayal,” Simon told RadarOnline, “I walked in and I saw Tamra with a friend of mine, Eddie Judge. I saw them holding hands and acting like a couple.” Simon continues, “As soon as Tamra saw me she let go of his hand and walked away.”
Simon then over-dramatized claimed he fell to his knees as he got weak. This was all the more shocking because Tamra also admitted to RadarOnline that she was indeed dating her husband’s friend. She said, “I started dating Eddie Judge last week. We started hanging out together more after my separation and one thing led to another. We had been friends for over a year.”
So why is Tamra now lying denying this to the OCRegister? Your guess is as good as ours. RadarOnline however didn’t take too kindly to Tamra denying the story she had previously admitted to them.
To prove their story, RadarOnline provided the OCRegister with texts they received from Tamra. Even more shocking, Tamra was the one that provided RadarOnline with the photo of she and Eddie Judge together (that photo is below).
Radaronline reporter, Alan Butterfield, provided the following text messages below exchanged between he and Tamra -
Butterfield: How long have you been dating him? Tamra: Since last week. We’ve been friends for a year.
Butterfield: Are you sleeping with him? Tamra: Yes, since last week.
And there you have it. Tamra admitted to dating and sleeping with Eddie, and then decided to lie about it. Not a smart move on Tamra’s part.
Kelly, who poses nude in the magazine, reveals she decided to pose for the mag “to show the world that a 41-year-old mother of two can be sexy!”
And how was it having her ex-husband, legendary fashion photographer Gilles Bensimon, shoot her? “That was my idea,” said Kelly. “No one takes more beautiful pictures of women than Gilles. I know a lot of amazing photographers, and they’re all lovely and awesome, but Gilles makes women better versions of themselves, and that’s what I wanted for Playboy.”
So did Kelly actually reveal everything? That answer is no according to Kelly because “I didn’t want to do that. I don’t think that part of a woman’s body is really evocative. The roundness of the hips, the buttocks, the breast, the shoulders, the clavicle, the hair, the teeth—those are things that I think are most evocative and provocative parts of the body. So I don’t think it’s really necessary to show that. Some people might think it’s necessary, but it wasn’t for me.”
The Real Housewives of Atlanta have spent the past few months out of the spotlight following their highly rated dramatic 2nd season, but that is all about to change soon as their 3rd season will begin filming in the upcoming weeks.
What is clear is Kandi Burruss, the fan favorite, will definitely be returning. What is not clear is who will be getting the axe for the 3rd season. This seems to be causing some drama amongst the cast as an “insider” spilled some not so nice things about Kandi to Atlanta blogger – Sandra Rose.
According to this insider, “Kandi’s attitude has taken an abrupt 180 degree turn and she now believes she is the star of the ‘Housewives’. In fact, the closeness between Kandi and the show’s producers has the other cast members so on edge that they have drastically altered their lifestyles out of fear of being kicked off the show.”
The insider also reveals the other housewives are jealous because the producers of the show have been going to Kandi to get her input on adding a new housewife. Apparently, a lot of women are dying to get on the show as more than 30 Atlanta-based industry execs, socialites and D-list celebs have interviewed for the role of ‘housewife’ on season 3. The prospects include former Soap star Victoria Rowell, who has surprisingly expressed a desire to join the show. She is said to be the front-runner.
Also coming this third season, Kim Zolciak will be revealing her bisexuality. She has broken things off with Big Poppa and has been dating a female DJ who goes by the name of DJ Tracy Young. Things are said to be very serious between the two, and there have even been rumors of marriage.Nene Leakesis also said to be going on a crash diet, and is apparently afraid that she might be the one on the chopping block.
Easy to see why she is the fan favorite. I believe Bravo might surprise us and actually keep all the women while adding a 6th housewife. However, I do believe if anyone will be getting the axe, it would be Lisa Wu Hartwell, while likable, she had the most boring storyline last season.

This is in connection to a restraining order case Gretchen filed against Jay last year. She obtained a temporary restraining order against Jay but it was then dropped by a judge when Gretchen refused to show up to court for a follow up. Jay had asked for attorneys fees and costs.
Jay also filed a lawsuit against Gretchen for slander and libel and several other counts last week, just days before Bravo filmed the reunion show.
According to Jay, Gretchen has damaged his reputation by calling him a liar, thief ,and drunk. Jay claims he and Gretchen were a couple when she joined the Real Housewives of OC but for the show’s dramatic purposes she was linked to another man.
Gretchen also recently revealed on the show that though her deceased fiance, Jeff Beitzel, left her over $2 million in his will, she did not receive a penny because his estate was in debt of over $3 million.
Last night’s episode of the Real Housewives of Orange County seems to have set off some fireworks both on and off the show, as cast-member Vicki Gunvalson had some harsh words after seeing the things that were said about here after she abruptly left Lynne’s dinner party.
Vicki, who seems to have developed a close friendship with fellow cast-mate Tamra Barney both on and off the show seemed very hurt and shocked by some of Tamra’s comments in last night’s episode.
Calling Tamra’s comments both rude and disgusting, Vicki had the following to say in her latest Bravo blog -
“When Donn and I were invited to Lynn’s housewarming party, I thought it would be a nice casual Sunday night dinner party and was looking forward to it. I never intended for anything to go down the way it did. I wasn’t nervous about seeing Simon; I was actually hoping we would give each other a hug and put any harsh feelings away, but obviously that didn’t happen. Simon somehow wants to blame “someone” for his marriage problems and the only one he felt he could point his finger at was me. I know Tamra was torn between Simon and myself and that I’m sure was a difficult spot to be in. HOWEVER, once I saw the footage on what went down after Donn and I left was disgusting. I guess it teaches you even as an adult, to be careful when you walk out of a room what people are going to say about you. Never in a million years would I have guessed Tamra to be so rude and disrespectful to me and our friendship. When she says she has my back, I’d hate to see her when she doesn’t have it. Guess her idea and my idea of being friends are “two different ideas” … as Donn would say!
When Tamra tells the group at the table that “I’m lacking something and [I'm] a very jealous person” made me very sad. I think everyone can agree that we ALL are lacking something and no one is perfect so I don’t know what she is referring to. The fact that she said I am a very jealous person is farthest from the truth. I am grateful for my family, for my life, and for my career, and am not jealous of anyone or anything! I wouldn’t want to be in any of those people’s lives and am completely happy with mine. She claims she is my friend? I would NEVER speak about her the way that she did about me. It was really sad to hear that come from her mouth when all I have ever done is support her and be a good friend to her.”
Simon Barney, who has spent the last couple of weeks saying some negative things about his soon to be ex-wife Tamra, has now decided to quit blogging all together, citing negative comments as being one of the main reasons.
His final blog is below -
“This week’s blog will be completely different than my past ones. I wanted to start by thanking everyone for their support and making me feel welcome as a first-time blogger. Unfortunately after much thought, I feel it is time to bring it to a close. I always told myself as soon as it turns negative, I would stop. I would have to say my blog and the comments have both shifted a little on the negative side. So, now is the time for me to focus on my kids and the next chapter of my life, whatever it might be. I also wanted to thank Bravotv.com for graciously allowing me the ability to give my spin on the show events. A final note: please don’t judge only on what you see, or think you see. Realize that we are on a reality show designed to entertain. Be nice to the rest of the cast members; they know not what you see….
So with that, I will bid you a final farewell.”
For some strange reason, something tells me passive aggressive Simon will be back to blogging in no time.

According to the Post, the wife & hubby duo are not going to be asked back for a season four. Season Three, which is set to premier March 4, just wrapped up filming. They will be appearing on the 3rd season.
So why are Simon & Alex not being asked back? According to a source, “There are a ton of reasons they aren’t being asked back.”
The first being, “Viewers don’t have a positive reaction to them, so they’re easily replaceable at this point,” says the source. However, a Bravo rep insists that “no details have been released about next season” and Simon himself insists, “We have not had any discussions regarding a fourth season.”
“Also, they don’t really fit in with the other wives,” continues the source. “All of the other women’s story lines have interwoven, yet Alex and Simon have kept theirs separate. It isn’t nearly as interesting as the other Housewives’.”
And it doesn’t end there. According to the insider, there are even more reasons. Apparently Simon threw a “hissy fit” because he’s not being paid as much as the other cast members. “Simon wants to be an equal on the show, but that doesn’t really make any sense to Bravo,” the source says. “After all, he’s not a ‘Real Housewife,’ now is he?”
The Post also says the other ladies on the show including Bethenny Frankel, Jill Zarin, Ramona Singer, and Kelly Bensimon would like to see them go. “In the upcoming season, Alex picks a lot of fights, and it looks like it’s an attempt to keep her story line relevant,” the insider says. “But it ended up seeming inauthentic.”
So far no word yet on who will replace Alex & Simon, if they do end up leaving the show.

Rumors of an impending exit for the Brooklynites began swirling just as filming wrapped on Season Three, which begins March 4. Says an insider, “There are a ton of reasons they aren’t being asked back.”
So where do we begin?
“Viewers don’t have a positive reaction to them, so they’re easily replaceable at this point,” the source dishes, although a rep for Bravo insists that “no details have been released about next season” and van Kempen himself says, “We have not had any discussions regarding a fourth season.”
“Also, they don’t really fit in with the other wives,” continues the insider. “All of the other women’s story lines have interwoven, yet Alex and Simon have kept theirs separate. It isn’t nearly as interesting as the other Housewives’.”
Our well-placed snitch says that’s not all: Simon apparently threw a “hissy fit” when he wasn’t paid as well as the other cast members.
“Simon wants to be an equal on the show, but that doesn’t really make any sense to Bravo,” the source says. “After all, he’s not a ‘Real Housewife,’ now is he?”
It seems Tamra Barney’s home has been on sale for ages, well that’s probably because it has, as the home was put up for sale well over a year ago. A new report now shows the Real Housewives of Orange County star’s home is scheduled to go into a foreclosure auction Thursday afternoon, which is today.
However not so fast, says Tamra Barney’s real estate agent. Marcos Prolo told the OC Register that the “short sale” on the house announced in November is still in escrow. Adding that the bank has given the sale its approval and even lowered the sale price by $25,000.
So why then is Tamra’s house listed for an auction Thursday afternoon? According to Marcos, “Banks typically are pokey at getting postponed foreclosure auctions off the schedule,” Prolo said. He however expects today’s scheduled auction to get yanked from the schedule Thursday morning. Sean O’Toole, CEO of ForeclosureRadar, also confirmed that most sales get postponed these days.
Prolo once again makes it clear that Tamra’s house is not in foreclosure, saying – “There isn’t a (foreclosure) sale. We already have bank approval.” The escrow is scheduled to close on Feb. 26 according to Prolo.
Below is a video preview of tonight’s episode of the OC Housewives, Is it just me or does it feel like this season has been going on forever? Moving on, the preview shows a rather intense argument between Simon Barney and Vicky. Simon feels Vicky is becoming too involved in his marriage, Vicky feels Simon is being rude, and Tamra feels she’s being put in the middle.
Also coming up in tonight’s episode is Lynne’s eviction. Guess we will all finally get to see how that whole ordeal went down.
UPDATE - The OC Register is now reporting the foreclosure auction on Tamra’s home has been indeed postponed until March. According to Tamra’s real estate agent, the home has been sold and is in escrow as a “short sale.” The March auction will take place only if the deal should fall apart.
The video preview is below –
