Ramona Singer

Lala Kent

Labor Day means a long weekend, which usually translates to some fun times with family and friends. Some of the Vanderpump Rules cast members headed down to Cabo to celebrate Lala Kent’s twenty-ninth birthday. Lala posted a photo in her birthday suit. Stassi Schroeder posed with a sombrero on. Katie Maloney showed off her assets for the camera as well.

Meanwhile, Jax Taylor and Brittany Cartwright went out of the way to make sure that their social media followers knew that they missed their flights to Cabo just in case anyone wondered if they weren’t invited. And I can’t blame them given Jax’s other cast feuds.

Ramona Singer Reportedly Refusing To Film RHONY Until Her Salary Demands Are Met

Ramona Singer has done something few other Housewives have accomplished–survived 11 seasons of a Real Housewives show. The Real Housewives of New York star has done it Ramona-style, giving us classic Housewife moments, such as her pop-eyed catwalk, embarrassing herself with awkward social gaffes and demanding the best room and service on nearly every Housewife cast trip.

Season 12 of RHONY is reportedly filming, minus Bethenny Frankel, who recently announced she was leaving the show. It is difficult to imagine the impact that departure will have, but the show has survived without Bethenny before. Could the show also survive without OG Ramona?

Shots fired from the OC to the Big Apple!

Tamra Judge took aim at Bethenny Frankel, slamming the Skinnygirl’s statement about “walking away” from Real Housewives of New York.

Luann de Lesseps Staying Sober “For The Moment” Following Probation

More than a year after her headline-making arrest, Luann de Lesseps is finally out of trouble with the law.

On Wednesday, August 28, the Real Housewives of New York City star opened up in an interview with TMZ about finishing probation, her decision to stay sober (for now) and fellow OG Bethenny Frankel‘s unexpected exit from the show.

Rumored New RHONY Addition Leah McSweeney Films With Tinsley Mortimer

Well, well, look what we have here! Our favorite emotional clownTinsley Mortimer has been spotted with cameras following her around in New York. It either means mother Dale Mercer now has her under constant surveillance or filming is underway for Real Housewives of New York. The franchise took a heavy hit with the announcement of Bethenny Frankel’s departure. We don’t know if she’s married, moving away, or if another fish is trying to kill her, but we wish her luck. Now that Bethenny has flown from the tragedy that is Tinsley’s love life, will we be sustained with the last 15 minutes of LuAnn de Lesseps cabaret career?

Maybe not, thanks to Leah McSweeney. There has been speculation she is ready to jump in and filled the void left by Bethenny’s exit. Those are big shoes to fill, so good luck with that. Leah isn’t exactly a headline-maker. She is a single mom and founder of street brand, Married to the Mob. No word on whether or not she has dated Harry Dubin, which seems to be a requirement of most NY housewives. While details about Leah remain scarce, allegedly she likes people who text her back. Apparently Leah and Tinsley are hanging out, which is good because Tinsley needs a partner when FaceTiming her embryos. Now we wait and see who brings what to the table, and if Leah has an apple on her plate.

Kelly Dodd Rick Leventhal

Every time I log into Instagram I see photos and videos of Bravolebrities mingling in the Hamptons and I cannot help being intrigued. It just looks like so much fun and I’m dying to know (and see) what else goes down. There should be a Bravo show set in the Hamptons. Oh, wait. There is a Bravo show that takes place in the Hamptons. I just wish there was a good show that was filmed there.

Or at the very least, I wish there was a camera crew to capture what goes down in between seasons. Real Housewives of Orange County star Kelly Dodd recently visited Ramona Singer, which sounds like a good time and a very entertaining spin-off show. Hint hint, Bravo. It was more than that though. Kelly has that visit to thank for her new relationship.

Real Housewives Of New York

Bethenny Frankel’s announcement that she is departing Real Housewives of New York has left an open wound in many of her fans. Even if you don’t like Bethenny, you have to admit her endless Skinny Girl endorsements hot-blooded personality provided a backbone to the show. Obviously viewers are left with a gaping spot that needs to be filled before filming resumes.

Knock, knock. Oh look, it’s Leah McSweeney! Freshly tapped as RHONY’s new Housewife, we are just learning details of the reported new kid on the block. Touted as a friend of Tinsley Mortimer, the 36-year-old newbie is a mother and founder of the street wear brand, Married to the Mob. Not much is known about Leah. She might have some skeletons in her closet, as many of us do, but our skeletons aren’t likely to fall victim to Ramona Singer. Now Leah could find out, the price of fame is high, and her past might add interest to the pricetag.

The Real Housewives Of New York React To Bethenny’s Departure

As we all know, Bethenny Frankel has chosen to retire from the Real Housewives of New York.  And we all know about her retirement because she has announced said retirement publicly and loudly, in a manner designed to garner the most publicity for her “upcoming projects” as possible.  So, pretty on-brand for B.

Some of us are mourning the loss of the biggest B in New York.  Some of us are probably relieved to never have to see a Skinnygirl-branded product or Skinnygirl-themed party on our screens again.  Of course, her fellow cast-members are eager to use Bethenny’s departure to get social media traffic tell us how they feel about Bethenny’s retirement.
