Monique Samuels took her toys and left the Real Housewives of Potomac sandbox. Or did she? I think by now we are all pretty much aware of Bravo’s generous method of allowing fired Housewives to control their exit narrative. Normal policy and procedure is to offer the departing individual their own spin on how they chose to leave. Unless you are Vicki Gunvalson and remain in a state of confused begging until your last day on Earth.
Let’s face it, if it weren’t for Monique lending a helping hand to style Candiace Dillard’s wig, people would still not be talking about RHOP. No one cares about Robyn Dixon’s hats or DOCTOR Wendy Osefo’s degrees. And despite the grandeur of Karen Huger, it wasn’t her living situation that made viewers watch. Monique and Candiace gave the show a heartbeat, and it seemed like no cast changes would happen in the wake of Mo and Candy’s battle royale. Until news that Monique was not returning began making the rounds. Now Monique speaks on what helped her make the decision not to come back to the show she helped put on the map.

Just because you are the self-proclaimed “World’s First Supermodel” does not mean you will get your way in the courtroom! Long-time viewers of the Ryan Seacrest produced show Shahs of Sunset may recall a brief yet juicy scene that featured Janice Dickinson and fiery Golnesa “GG” Gharachedaghi. Janice claimed she was portrayed negatively and attempted to fight back in a courtroom.
Both GG and Janice were backstage preparing to model in a fashion show. GG was set to model a silver romper but noticed Janice already wearing it while GG was still getting her
mask make-up done. Immediately, GG went into her classic mean girl mode referring to her as an “old ass bitch who died out with the Flintstones”. (Which doesn’t make sense if you think about it – the Flintstones were human beings and last I checked human beings were still walking the earth. But okay, you do you GG. I am here for your mean girl snark/sass/attitude all.day.) Certainly the things GG said were unpleasant but were they worthy of a lawsuit???
The newest housewife to hold a diamond on the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills is none other than actress Denise Richards. Denise is probably best known for playing Bond girl Dr. Christmas Jones, a nuclear physicist who wears tank tops that are too small. Or for her role as a student in Wild Things, where she makes out with Neve Campbell and wears tank tops that are too small
Denise was an icon on the big screen in the late 90’s early 2000’s. But is she going to be an icon on the RHOBH? We’re only two episodes in so far and Denise seems pretty chill. In the season nine trailer, we know that Kim Richards accuses Denise of being a liar. There doesn’t seem to be more drama than that. However, Lisa Rinna hints otherwise and teases at big things to come from Denise.
Who among us hasn’t told a little white lie? You know, like telling your boss you were late for work because of traffic. When in reality you spent 15 minutes waiting in line at your favorite coffee place to get a caramel macchiato before work.
Housewives, in some ways, are no different than the rest of us. They occasionally tell lies-sometimes big and sometimes small. In an interview this week, the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills’ Kyle Richards talks about the new season. She says it’s all about deception. Which seems like a good basis for an interesting Real Housewives season.
We have more sightings than usual this week with all of the reality stars descending on New York City for Fashion Week parties and events. Last night photographers snapped Real Housewives of New York City star Ramona Singer arriving to the Playboy Club New York Grand Opening, along with her former co-star, Kelly Bensimon.
Other reality stars were seen attending the Us Weekly Most Stylish New Yorkers party. Former Real Housewives of New Jersey star Danielle Staub hit the pink carpet, as well as current cast member Margaret Josephs. Also seen: Jersey Shore‘s Vinny Guadagnino, former Summer House star Lauren Wirkus and more!
One star that has been noticeably absent so far this year at #NYFW: Stassi Schroeder! She must be too busy filming the latest season of Vanderpump Rules. Priorities, I guess.
Check out the mini gallery below!

Brandi Glanville never disappoints when it comes to spilling tea on her podcast, Unfiltered with Brandi Glanville. She sat down this week to chat with her bestie, former Real Housewives of New York star Kristen Taekman. During their chat, Brandi revealed that she dated Ryan Seacrest after she left Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. They ladies dish on everything from post-Housewives friendships and more!
Kristen is asked if she’s still friendly with any of her former RHONY stars. She says that she still talks to Heather Thomson and is “friendly” with the other ladies, but does not talk to them or keep in touch since everyone is so busy. She also says the age difference might have something to do with it since they were all about 20 years older than her. Brandi keeps in touch with Yolanda Hadid a little, but shares that she texts with Kim Richards every day. “I don’t really talk to anyone else. Obviously LVP and I have our issues. I ran into Rinna and she’s fine. We’re always chatty.”
