Perez Hilton is reporting that Bethenny Frankel is not only engaged, but also pregnant!

The Real Housewives of NYC star announced her engagement to boyfriend Jason Hoppy over the weekend, but made no mention of a pregnancy.

According to Perez, Bethenny, 38, is expecting her first child, and might have been hoping to give/sell her pregnancy exclusive to a major magazine.

A source very close to Bethenny claims this was all premeditated for her new reality show. “She got pregnant and got engaged all for her own show,” says the source.

Not sure about that considering Bethenny’s reality show has yet to begin filming. She is currently filming the 3rd season of the NYC Housewives series.

The above photo of Bethenny is the most recent one of her, taken on October 15th. Congrats to Bethenny if she is indeed pregnant.

Bravo housewives

The Real Housewives franchise has been a major hit for the Bravo network, as NBC Universal announced this week that it will begin airing the “Real Housewives” series five days a week in syndication beginning fall 2010.

Reruns of the series is expected to air weekdays on on NBC-owned stations. This is good news for Bravo, but no so much for the housewives as there have been several reports claiming the ladies will not be receiving a dime from the syndication profits.

The reason being because the ladies are on a reality show, and are not considered actors or SAG members. Therefore, they are not entitled to syndication checks. They only get paid while taping. The Atlanta housewives allegedly got paid $100,000 each for their 2nd season.

As expected, the ladies are not happy with this news and some allegedly would like to sue. Nene One of the ladies from the Atlanta franchise gave the following quote to Atlanta blogger FreddyO -

“This is some bull shit, we’ve been fighting their as* for the longest to keep the show from going to syndication without us making a dime … Damn, we not getting a dime and they making all the money… WOW … They can play the show forever and we will never get a check that aint right”

Something about this seems rather unfair, but then again the ladies signed the contracts.

kandi--aj-jewel

Preliminary autopsy results of the Real Housewives of Atlanta’s AshleyA.J.” Jewell are in, and it includes a surprise finding.

E! News is reporting that Dr. Kelly Rose of the Fulton County Medical Examiner’s believes Kandi Burruss‘ ex-fiancé may have suffered from the sickle-cell anemia blood disorder, which may have contributed to his death during a fight outside an Atlanta strip club.

“Preliminary results are suggestive of [sickle-cell],” said Rose. AJ sustained a severe blow to the head in the Oct. 2 brawl that took his life at the Body Tap Club. He was allegedly a co-owner of the strip club.

The sickle-cell anemia disorder affects red blood cells, and may have restricted AJ’s body’s oxygen supply and exacerbated his injuries. Rose believes “The altercation played a role in that [his death], and his underlying disease process contributed to his overall demise.”

A final report that will state his official cause of death is expected in the near future. Frederick Richardson, a club employee, was charged with voluntary manslaughter and is currently being held in an Atlanta jail without bond.

Sheree-Whitfield

According to the Rumor mill, Sheree Whitfield might be the latest housewife to get the DeShawn Snow treatment boot from the Real Housewives of Atlanta.

A new report has sources close to the series revealing that Sheree might be getting the boot because she has become too boring and drama free. Really? Even more boring than Lisa Wu Hartwell?

According to the source, one of the housewives has to go to make room for new blood next season. Kandi Burruss was allegedly going to be the booted housewife until she surprised the producers by becoming the series favorite, which isn’t seating too well with former favorite Nene Leakes.

The source also claims Sheree is biting the hand that feeds her by refusing to stir up drama on the show this season because she wants to be taken seriously as a fashion designer. Umm didn’t Sheree stir up some major wig yanking drama early on?

Not sure how accurate this story is. I suspect Lisa will be the housewife to go if they decide to get rid of someone. She’s been very boring to watch this season, and has been the most drama free which is a major no-no for being a Bravo housewife.

Kim Zolciak of The Real Housewives of Atlanta opens up in an exclusive new interview with Essence.

Kim talks about how Kandi is dealing with her tragic week, her thoughts on AJ, the breakup with Big Poppa (Lee Najjar) as well as her new boyfriend. She also speaks briefly on Big Poppa’s wife, saying his wife knew about her.

Below are excerpts from Kim’s new interview -

ESSENCE.COM: How is Kandi doing? Have you spoken to her?
KIM ZOLCIAK:
I spoke with her mom and texted her just to let her know I’m here. I was one of the first to find out and I called the other ladies. Everybody has been fantastic but it’s unfortunate that it takes a tragedy to bring us all together. We were able to put all our stuff on the back burner and come together for Kandi. It’s not something that I ever thought would happen, no matter how tragic the situation.

ESSENCE.COM: What was your interaction with A.J like?
ZOLCIAK:
He actually called me last week and I never called him back, which sucks. I adored him. He was such a great guy. He was actually with Big Papa the night I got engaged. I hated that people have this bad impression of him because he had so many children. He was a great father and he was great with Riley [Kandi's 7-year-old daughter] and he loved Kandi.

ESSENCE.COM: And when is the wig line coming out?
ZOLCIAK:
I’ve joined with a company called Pop Wigs who will manufacture and distribute the wigs. It’s a lot more work than I ever anticipated. I’m working on everything from trademarking to the packaging. I’m really proud of the wigs, so by December people will be able to do pre-orders and we can send them out by January.

Dwight Eubanks confirmed this news to The Atlanta Journal-Constitution. The hairdresser and honorary “sixth housewife” said he didn’t expect AJ to be edited out of the upcoming episodes.

“I don’t see them editing him out. It’s television. It’s reality. We just have to prepare and get geared up for next year,” said Dwight.

He also added that he is uncertain of Kandi’s future on the show, saying: “She’s had such a dramatic year. She had her uncle die, too. She has her own career to focus on. Now her life has changed with her daughter and taking temporary custody of [AJ's] twins.”

Kandi has however previously voiced her desire to return for a 3rd season before the passing of AJ.
