Two of Bravo’s housewives are getting in on the popular NOH8 campaign. Dina Manzo (pictured above with daughter Lexi) and Kim Zolciak (of The Real Housewives of Atlanta) recently shot some promotional pictures for the campaign.
The NOH8 (no hate) campaign was created to help raise awareness for marriage equality in California.
Kim tweeted Tuesday, “the noh8 campaign shoot was hot. and I am topless!!! Just to cause a stir to make people pay attention!”

There have been rumors that BFFs Jill Zarin and Bethenny Frankel were on the outs, and Bethenny now seems to be confirming these rumors with her recent comments.
Bethenny had some harsh words for herReal Housewives of New York City castmate, calling her recent actions “utterly embarrassing.” Those recent actions include Jill’s public outings with the likes of Jon Gosselin and Michael Lohan.
“Why would Jill be hanging with Jon Gosselin and Michael Lohan?” she asked of Jill’s escapades with the D-List dads in Southampton. “That was like an episode of ‘The Surreal Life.’ It is utterly embarrassing. I mean, honestly, Urkel should have come – and if Gary Coleman showed up, it would have been perfect.”
Bethenny doesn’t stop there. As she stirred up drinks she created in honor of celebs, she snapped “No!” when asked if she created a drink for former BFF Jill, “Jill doesn’t get a drink,” said Bethenny.
This isn’t too surprising as the pair have not been photographed together in recent months. I have also heard stories about Jill becoming too big for her britches. Some are saying she has become a total diva, and a nightmare to be around. I read a story about her pulling the “Do you know who I am” outburst while she was waiting to get served at a restaurant. She seems to truly consider herself a celebrity, and wants to be famous at all cost.
Atlanta ‘Housewife’ Lisa Wu Hartwell has decided to take her ex-husband, R&B singer Keith Sweat, to court in an attempt to gain custody of her 2 eldest kids.
“I’ve already been seeing them four or five times a week, but now the time has come when I want to have them with me full-time,” Lisa, 38, tellsStar. “I immediately filed for an appeal after the verdict, but I was never given a court date in five years. I’ve been afraid of the judicial system, but I’m finally taking the bull by the horns and trying to get my boys back again!”
Lisa continues, “If Keith has a hang-up about our sons being on TV, I would be fine with that. But Real Housewives is supposed to be a reality series, and the reality is that all the fans watching believe I only have one child,” says Lisa, who appears on the series with her husband, Ed Hartwell, and their 2-year-old son, EJ. “Jordan and Justin understand what the show involves, and they’d love to do it. I adore all three of my sons — and I believe they all have a rightful place on the show.”
It seems the pressures of the show and the drama associated with her fiance, A.J. has doomed the couple. “We’re on hiatus,” the former Xscape member said on radio station WVEE’s “The Frank & Wanda show.”
Majority of the drama stems from the fact that her fiance A.J. has 6 kids by 4 different women. Kandi’s harshest critic also happened to be her mother, who was very open about her non acceptance of A.J.
The whole A.J. fiasco has apparently taken a toll on Kandi and her mother’s relationship. Kandi said it got to a point where she didn’t know if she wanted she and A.J.’s relationship to endur in order to spite her mother or because she was in love.
Kandi happens to be my current favorite Atlanta housewife, however I cannot understand her thought process in wanting to marry a man with 6 children by 4 different women. I hear there’s a shortage of men in Atlanta, but surely times can’t be this hard.
The Real Housewives of Orange County’sGretchen Rossi had previously claimed her deceased fiance, Jeff Beitzel, didn’t leave her “millions and millions of dollars,” but according to TMZ, that is not the whole truth.
TMZ has uncovered Jeff Beitzel‘s trust, amended a month before his death, and it’s clear she actually pulled in a pretty penny. $2,500,000 million to be exact.
Gretchen was awarded $2,500,000 — some of which she collected from Beitzel’s life insurance policy. According to TMZ, some of Beitzel’s five ex-wives aren’t too happy with her inheritance either.
Jeff’s ex wife, Sharon, had previously lashed against Gretchen, explaining what she and her kids really thought of her.
Gretchen has however moved on with new boyfriend/OC ‘housewives’ serial dater – Slade Smiley.
Ramona debuted her softer, cropped coif last weekend at the closing day of the Mercedes-Benz Polo Challenge at Blue Star Jets Field in Bridgehampton.
“I’m renewing myself,” Ramona said to PEOPLE, “I went to Oscar Blandi and I wanted to get my hair trimmed. I needed a new look. And he said, ‘Okay, how short are you willing to go with it?’”
“I never have it short,” said Ramona. “And I said, here, at the shoulder,” she explains. “He said, ‘Do you trust me?’” And the end result was worth the risk, according to Ramona. “Afterward I said, ‘Oh, my God, I feel like an older Cameron Diaz‘ — very sexy and chic and young and hip. I loved it.
Not too crazy about the new haircut but it was time for the bangs to go. Bravo plans to start filming season 3 of the NY housewives soon.

Jonathan was the subject of an argument that took place between Kim and Sheree during the recently aired long extended episode on Bravo. Sheree denied calling Jonathan during the bitchfest fight.
In his statement below, Jonathan refers to Sheree as being crazy, delusional, a liar, a fraud, and claims she did call him for help in finding a new home.
“Sheree is one delusional piece of trash. PERIOD! She is one of the most ungrateful women I have ever met.
Prior to Season 2 of “The Real Housewives of Atlanta” filming this past February, Sheree had reached out to me and Kim’s best friend on the show, Cori, because she knew one of us could help.
Sheree was so upset about a pending foreclosure on her home with ex Bob Whitfield, and at one point I actually felt bad for her. She needed a home and wanted it asap and had zero dollars to her name, so she said. Upon finding her a penthouse in Midtown Atlanta, she opted not to take it, even though it was free, because it was too small for all her things. Let me mind you this was a free place that was worth over a 1,000,000 dollars in a gorgeous high rise.
Sheree then thought she could get Cori to pay for her a place to live, because Cori’s net-worth is in the in the millions.
In the end Cori and I decided it wasn’t worth helping her because never once did she say ‘thank you’ or anything of that magnitude. She was more worried about how her home would look on camera, staged or not.
Now, she lives in a rented home that isn’t even hers and God knows who is even paying for it. Sheree also begged for $75,000 to start her own clothing line up, but it wasn’t worth it to me. After all, she doesn’t design her own clothes, she has others sketch them out of ideas she has seen other designers make.
