Dorinda Medley Thinks Lady Gaga’s Mom Should Be A Real Housewife Of New York

Last season on Real Housewives of New York, Dorinda Medley dressed up as Lady Gaga for Halloween. Now she wants Lady Gaga on the show for real, well potentially, but just not as a Real Housewife. Dorinda actually thinks Lady Gaga’s mom, Cynthia Germanotta, would make a great New York Housewife.

Are you listening, Andy Cohen? This means that Lady Gaga could join Avery Singer as one of the Real Housewife daughters dispensing sage advice to the “adults” in the cast. It sounds like a great idea to me.

Kelly Dodd Discusses Tension With Emily Simpson’s Husband Shane; Denies Vicki Gunvalson’s Gold Digger Accusation

Production needs to give Emily Simpson’s husband Shane Simpson an orange to hold up during the opening credits. He has contributed more to this season of Real Housewives of Orange County than some of the actual Housewives. Sure, he’s rubbed pretty much every viewer the wrong way, but at least he’s given us something to talk about thanks to his war of words with Kelly Dodd.

Kelly discussed her instantly infamous argument with Shane and her attempt to make peace with him in the following episode during last night’s Watch What Happens Live.

Thomas Ravenel Arrested On Assault Charge

(former?) Southern Charm star Thomas Ravenel has reportedly been arrested this morning on an assault charge. The Post and Courier reports that Thomas was arrested and booked at 10 am this morning in Charleston.

The site wasn’t immediately clear on whether this arrest was linked to a report made back in May by a woman (the former nanny, Dawn) claiming Thomas had assaulted her in January 2015 at his home – or if this was something completely unrelated.

We’ll keep you posted on any new developments. You can see his mugshot here.

Fitsnews has some more details on the arrest and what it could mean for Thomas. UPDATE: Fitsnews has a copy of the arrest affidavit. 

You can listen to an interview that Nanny Dawn did with Erin Martin’s podcast, Pink Shade.

Cynthia Bailey And Sister Malorie Film Episode of Iyanla Fix My Life

Cynthia Bailey just revealed that she is the latest Real Housewives of Atlanta star to film an episode of Iyanla: Fix My Life! Cynthia and her sister Malorie both shared Instagram updates this morning, announcing their participation in the show. It is set to air on September 29th on OWN.

Cynthia shared with her followers, “Wow! Been on TV for a while now, and filming @iyanlavanzant #FIXMYLIFE to support my sister @mal_bailey was most definitely one of the most painful experiences of my life. We have been through a lot as a family & the scars run deep. Like most families, we don’t talk about them. The family love is there but the family communication is almost nonexistent.” 

Teresa Giudice Is Selling Workout Supplements, Coffee, & Seasoning On Her Official Website

Workout supplements, coffee, and garlic seasoning don’t seem like products that would be rolled out at the same time. At first glance, there is nothing overtly cohesive about that product line up. However, it does make a little more sense knowing that Real Housewives of New Jersey star Teresa Giudice is the one selling all of that.

She does work out a lot and cook a lot of Italian food. It does (kind of) make sense that the New Jersey Housewife would sell all of those products, but it’s just a little strange that she’s dropping all of those items at once on her official website.

Real Housewives Of Orange County Recap: Jesus Take Vicki’s Fun Bus License…

On last night’s Real Housewives Of Orange County the morality police came for Gina Kirschenheiter, and if there’s one person who shouldn’t be presiding over other people’s morals it’s Vicki Gunvalson! Especially as Gina’s biggest sin is her tongue-twister of a last name. Errrrr… I mean, that she doesn’t believe in organized religion.

For some reason, everyone is supremely bothered that Gina wants to divorce her husband Matt because they’ve simply fallen out of love. I believe the court’s term for this is “irreconcilable differences,” and that Vicki, Kelly Dodd, and Tamra Judge nee Barney have all pulled the same shenanigan when ditching a husband for being too boring. All aboard the fun bus or bust, right?! And their husbands even lived with them, whereas Matt moved over an hour away and is too busy to see his kids for more than one weekend a month. Um, really??!

Personally I think they’re all aghast that Gina doesn’t appreciate the perfection of her situation – she has all the perks of a husband (who also happens to be hot): sex, financial security, doesn’t need to work, cushy home, nanny, but doesn’t have to put UP with a husband! These women probably do believe that a man who’s completely checked out of his marriage unless he’s depositing cash in the bank account is one worth keeping!

Margaret Josephs Hints At Tension With Jennifer Ayden Next Season On Real Housewives Of Orange County

The trailer for Real Housewives of New Jersey Season 9 leaked last week, the official cast photos are out, and you know what that means: the season will be here soon enough and so will the shade. Last season Margaret Josephs was the new girl. This season, the new Housewives are Jennifer Aydin and Jackie Goldschneider.

In the trailer, it’s pretty clear that the fans will get to witness some Margaret vs. Jennifer drama. Jennifer calls our Margaret for her past affair and Margaret comes out swinging telling Jennifer, “That’s why your husband sleeps in his girlfriend’s bed.” SHADE THROWN.
