Ready or not, here they come! Some of our favorite and not so favorite Bravo Housewives are set to bring their drama onto the popular game show – “Who Wants To Be A Millionaire.

Eighteen of the Housewives are set to appear on the show February 22 – 26 as they team up with real-life housewives for a special presentation of “The Real Housewives of Millionaire.” Housewives from all four casts – New York, New Jersey, Atlanta and Orange County – will participate.

Andy Cohen, Executive Producer of the Housewives’ franchise will sit in via Skype as the expert for the “Ask The Expert” lifeline all week. Not to worry though as the Bravo housewives will not be without any help.  They will actually be paired in the hot seat with the contestant housewives to help them answer the trivia questions.

The Housewives that will be teaming up with contestants include New Jersey cast members Caroline, Dina, Jaqueline and Teresa; New York cast members Kelly, LuAnn, Ramona, Alex and Jill; and Atlanta housewife, Kandi. Celebrity questions will then be presented to the contestants by Orange County Housewives Vicki, Lynne, Jeana, Gretchen and Tamra, as well as Danielle from the New Jersey cast and Lisa and Sheree from Atlanta.

Jill Zarin of the NY Housewives talked about her excitement in doing the show – “I’m really excited to be here. I bet I’m the only one who really watches the show on a regular basis. I watch it every day. I TiVo it and watch it at night. I do. And then when I got asked to be on the show, I died. It was like dying and going to heaven.”

Dina Manzo of NJ was nervous and hoped to get a lot of pop culture questions.  “I’ve been too busy to get ready, that’s why I’m so afraid. I could redecorate the whole set with my eyes shut, but I’m scared to answer these questions. I just hope she has a good sense of humor, my partner,” said Dina.

New Jersey housewife Danielle Staub hosted a party at the China Club in New York City. NYC housewife Kelly Bensimon also hosted a party of hers at Guastavino’s in NYC as well. You can see more photos of the duo below.

In other news, some of the housewives recently got together to do a photoshoot for PEOPLE magazine. No word yet on when they will be appearing in the mag. A behind the scenes photo is below –

Is Tamra Barney a grandma? There are rumors floating around that the self professed “hottest housewife” on the block might have become a grandmother. Allegedly Tamra’s son, Ryan Vieth posted some information on his facebook about his one month old daughter named Dakota Vieth. Perhaps someone with access to Ryan’s page can confirm this for us.

Gretchen Rossi also recently took to her facebook fanpage to post a photo of her shooting a commercial for TurboTax, not sure what the correlation is between Gretchen & taxes but a behind the scenes photo is below.

Real Housewives of New Jersey

Everyone seems to have their own opinion on the infamous White House party crashers aka Tareq and Michaele Salahi, the Real Housewives of New Jersey are now letting theirs be known.

Yes, they may flip tables and call each other crack whores, but one thing they would never do is crash a White House party. “It’s a little crazy,” Teresa Giudice told Us Weekly at the My Hero Gala in NYC Tuesday. “I wouldn’t go to any place I wasn’t invited to. It’s poor etiquette. It’s not my style.”

“There are plenty of ways to get your 15 minutes,” said Caroline Manzo. “I thought it was irresponsible — very irresponsible. We are at a time of war and what message does that send to those who want to do us harm?”

Dina Manzo, who is rumored to not be returning for a 2nd season, also chimed in. “I don’t care if it’s the White House or your next door neighbor and you’re not invited, you don’t show up,” she said. “It’s really not the right thing to do.”

Bravo announced today that The Real Housewives of New Jersey will be returning for a second season in 2010.

The first season of The NJ Housewives was one of the highest-rated “Real Housewives” series in all demos, averaging 2.55 million total viewers.

Bravo however did not announce which of the women from the first season — Danielle Staub , Dina Manzo, Jacqueline Laurita, Teresa Giudice and Caroline Manzo — will be back. There are have been reports that Dina has no interest in doing a 2nd season.

Also coming in 2010 is the highly anticipated The Real Housewives of D.C. The Washington D.C. franshice will be the network’s fifth Housewives franchise.

The D.C. version will focus on women who have influence in Washington culture, whether it’s through political galas, fundraisers, or other society events.

Danielle Staub made an appearance this week on Bravo’s new weekly talk show, “Watch What Happens” hosted by Andy Cohen.

Andy wasted no time in asking The Real Housewives of New Jersey “star” about the infamous reunion incident which left Caroline Manzo in tears. Danielle claimed that just prior to the reunion show, she gave a phone number to the brother of a longtime friend … and that brother just happened to be Dina Manzo’s ex-husband. The reason being? It had something to do with contracts of the show according to Danielle.

Dina has admitted in a past interview that the tension between she and Danielle began over lawyer fees for their show’s negotiations. Dina hired a lawyer and wanted all the women to chip in so that they could all negotiate their contracts together for the show. Danielle declined saying she wanted to do her own negotiations.

Danielle went on to admit she regrets her actions saying, “It wasn’t my place to do so.” She also adds that she didn’t think it was a big enough deal to provoke Caroline’s reaction.

Other topics covered during the show included questions about her plastic surgery and sex tape. She denied ever having a brow lift, and claimed to be laying off on the botox for a while. When it came to the sex tape issue, she claimed to have been “set up.” She also denied the news of being a past escort.

I’m not really sure how one can be unaware that they are being taped with a cell phone camera while having sex, but umm sure Danielle. I’m sure she was set up the same way someone set her up to go on national television and ask her 46 26 year old boyfriend for public restroom sex.

Kelly Bensimon

Kelly Bensimon was able to take some time away from Kelly world to talk to People in a new interview about the upcoming season of The Real Housewives of New York.

As we reported earlier, Kelly has signed on for the 3rd season, but she is uncertain as to which other housewives will be returning. “I am coming back,” says Kelly. “But I actually don’t know who else is coming back. They don’t really tell me.”

Kelly is however uncertain is the new season will be able to match the drama of the other housewives’ franchises. “We start shooting in two weeks,” she said. “And it’s going to be interesting now because the bar is so high. When Gretchen [Rossi from The Real Housewives of Orange County] is getting a motorcycle at a party and Teresa [Giudice from The Real Housewives of New Jersey] is throwing over the table, what’s going to happen?”

She goes on to talk about The New Jersey Housewives – When I met Danielle, she said, ‘Thank you so much for being supportive of me. She was just really excited and flattered that I supported her. Unless you do something wrong to me, I will give you a chance.”

And what about Caroline Manzo? She’s “the all-time mama bear,” Kelly said. “And actually, she was really sweet and really nice.”

Kelly has also gotten close with some of The Real Housewives of Atlanta, “I was going down to Atlanta to open a hotel, so I called NeNe [Leakes],” Bensimon said. “I took out NeNe and Lisa [Wu Hartwell] and we had so much fun. They’re crazy, fun and spirited. They’re awesome girls.”

The contract information of The Real Housewives of New Jersey cast has been leaked and boy oh boy is it interesting.  Popsquire was able to get their hands on the contract signed by one of the ladies, and here is a brief summary of what it entails -

  • Unlike most other reality shows, the contract does not require Bravo to pay the NJ ladies for their appearances.
  • In addition to receiving no compensation, they have to pay Bravo 10% of “any and all gross income…unrelated to the Series” that they earn for up to four years after the last episode of the series. (So I take it Bravo is earning 10% off the profits of Bethanny’s “Naturally Thin” book)
  • The producers did agree not to film the ladies engaging in any of the following conduct without prior approval: “(i) showering/bathing, (ii) urination/defecation, and (iii) engaging in actual sexually explicit conduct.”

Okay, so these women sign away their lives and even part of the earnings just to be on television?  Fame is a helluva drug.

Real Housewives Danielle Staub

Danielle Staub’s ex and author of “Cop Without A Badge,” Kevin Maher continues to speak out about his ex wife. Kevin gave another interview to Star, stating her life is in danger.

The reason being? “She helped put a couple of big-time Colombian coke dealers in jail,” says Kevin. “These are dangerous men who never forget…and they could be back out on the street now. It’s mind-boggling to me that she’d put herself at risk!”

Kevin continues “I can’t believe Danielle would have allowed herself to go on TV — on a series that basically shows where she lives! — given what she has done in the past.” How sweet of Kevin for caring so much for Danielle’s safety.

In other NJ Housewives’s news, Jacqueline Laurita gave a new interview to Life & Style magazine and spoke out against Danielle once again -

“I don’t think it was something as simple as giving a phone number out, but leave it to Danielle to try to downplay her whole dirty deed. She’s an angry, bitter person. She felt Dina rejected her, so she went out to destroy her!

All of the housewives excluding Danielle also appeared this morning on the Regis and Kelly show. Danielle was not with them because the housewives felt it would be uncomfortable. Also when pressed about what Danielle did to Dina, they all refused to say exactly what it was. Below is a picture of them leaving the studio -
