As you know, I'll be sharing some Watch What Happens Live posts sporadically throughout the week, and for Monday's show, I was in full recap mode. For last night's episode, I tried to go less recap/more highlight reel to see which style our wonderful readers prefer. Please sound off with your opinions in the comments section!
Andy Cohen's guests last night were former Real Housewives of Atlanta star Kim Zolciak Biermann and Tony award winner and writer Harvey Fierstein. The leading lady of Harvey's Broadway hit Kinky Boots is the bartender. Harvey thinks Kim's hair is real (um, does he need glasses?), clarifying, if she bought it, it's really hers. Fair enough. If I close my eyes and just listen to Harvey's voice, I can easily picture Big Ang from Mob Wives!
The drinking game alert is "boots" (said thirty times throughout the show!), and we learn that Kim keeps all her old pregnancy tests. Ew.
I'm not sure if you've noticed but there's been a green mesh dress floating around the Real Housewives circuit. Maybe they're all trading clothes now? Sharing is caring, after all! At least according to my son's preschool teacher.
First Kim Zolciak was spotted in the side-boob baring spectacular on the Real Housewives of Atlanta reunion. Kim says hers is the original Stella which must be why it was much too tight and revealing, cause you can't get a loaner dress altered. Her stylist provided the duds and celebs (or wannabe celebs) borrow gowns all the time so no shame in that!

Our favorite reality TV stars can’t get enough of the spotlight during their regularly scheduled time slots, so they take to Twitter to share even more of their daily lives with us. And we love them for it! Here’s a roundup of some of our favorite photos from the Twitterverse this week! Enjoy!
Not, of course, because we think Teresa is an amazingly kind individual who would never, ever plot to ruin her sister-in-law's reputation, but because the image conscious Mrs. Giudice has her own reputation to protect. Disputing rumors that she is out to undo all of their family therapy sessions, Teresa insists she has no ill-will towards Melissa and is happy the families are getting along!
"My brother and Melissa and I have been in a good place for a long time now," Teresatells RumorFix. I'm thinking Teresa's definition of 'long time' and mine are different, but she's probably on reality TV time! She continues, "I would never do anything to hurt my family, ever. I don’t give two craps about rumors about Melissa’s past, as long as she treats my brother and my parents well, we’re good!”
Caroline Manzo has promised a more peaceful season of Real Housewives of New Jersey. She's also promised the ladies are working to mend fences and self-reflect over the last two seasons where famewhoring and petty drama got the best of them. I certainly hope I never again have to watch a reunion like the last two!
Apparently the cast that brawls together, stays together because Caroline says her friendship with Teresa Giudice is currently a work in progress, but they're working on it!
“I’m thrilledMelissa [Gorga] and Teresa are talking, that they’re trying to work things out, that’s the way things should be," Caroline tells Naughty But Nice Rob. "Between Teresa and myself it remains to be seen. There’s been a lot of self-reflection, a lot of conversation trying to mend a lot of broken bridges. I can’t tell you how the story’s going to end because I don’t know.”
HollywoodLife caught up with the season 5 cast at the recent Bravo UpFronts where Teresa Giudice and Jacqueline Laurita were seen laughing and chatting. The show is reportedly returning to the "season one feel" that so captured audiences.
Caroline Manzo confirms the ladies "self-reflect" a lot this season. "There's a lot of truths told; there's a lot of united times," she explains. She definitely confirms viewers will "get the fights" but it's more than just animosity as the ladies genuinely work to reconnect. "There's happy tears, there's sad tears, there's belly laughs – which was season one."
All the nonsense allegedly started when Johnny and his wife Penny Drossos-Karagiorgis (possibly conspiring with Teresa Giudice and Kim according Melissa to some sources) threatened to bring Melissa Gorga's ex-boyfriend to the salon. Then Johnny allegedly made comments about Jacqueline's son Nicholas. In a new interview Johnny denies all involvement – and he blames producers for setting him up!
“I was ambushed and attacked,” Johnnytold NorthJersey.com. As a result of the brawl Johnny suffered a broken nose, bruises, lumps and head trauma. He also says he was hit in the head and still has “a mark on my forehead from a stiletto heel.” Our source,Tom Murro, tells us Jaquelineyanked off her shoes during the brawl and was slapping Johnny in the head (with her hand)!
