'RHOP' Cast Questions Candiace Dillard's Choice to Press Charges Against Monique Samuels (ET Online exclusive) "In ET's sneak peek at the next episode, the cast (sans Monique Samuels) is gathered at a celebration for Wendy Osefo's baby, Kamrynn. The conversation quickly turns to the latest update in the saga of Candiace Dillard vs. Monique. After an argument got physical between Monique and Candiace at a group event days before, Candiace decided to press charges against her co-star. Gizelle Bryant brings the fact up, mentioning to Candiace that her phone "vibrated off the table" with messages asking about why Candiace decided to take things to a legal level. "I'm stressed," Candiace confesses. "I only very recently filed the charges and it was everywhere in five minutes. I was not expecting it to happen that fast, like…" "So, is the goal for her to go to jail?" Robyn Dixon asks. "The goal is for the court system to do what the court system needs to do," Candiace replies. That's when Gizelle mentions that the charges could lead to a 12-year jail sentence for Monique. Both Gizelle and Robyn say no one wants Monique to go to jail, to which Candiace replies, "We don't?" Candiace's mother, Dorothy, says "there should be consequences" for what happened. That's when Ashley Darby chimes in to say Candiace may not be innocent when it comes to what unfolded between her and Monique, even though Ashley wasn't around to see the altercation. "Is she paying you, as well, to speak for her and be her mouthpiece?" Candiace asks, alleging that Monique asked Ashley to defend her to the group while she took time away from it. "I'm already married to a millionaire, what do I need to be paid for?" Ashley asks. Candiace replies, "Congratulations… not for long." In the coming weeks, viewers will see Monique file her own charges against Candiace. Ultimately, the charges against both women were dropped. The Real Housewives of Potomac airs Sundays at 9 p.m. ET/PT on Bravo."
Robyn Dixon Opens Up About Her Tax Issues: "I Take Responsibility for It" (Bravo) I was doing my own taxes, I was filing them late. It was just a hot mess. And I put it on the back burner. OK, I'll get to it one day, I'll get to it one day, I'll get to it one day. Finally, when I decide to get to it, it's out of control," she explained. "But it definitely was a combination of things of even how I got there. I had some old taxes from before my bankruptcy. It was just a big juggling of things, and I was irresponsible, and I take responsibility for it." However, Candiace noted during the After Show that it seems like Robyn has been able to successfully move forward from this. "I trust that it has been handled, because they are still in their home, and she is still getting her hair done," Candiace said."
Real Housewives of Potomac's Ashley Darby gives update on marriage after photo scandal: 'That was a hard time for us' (AOL) "Ashley Darby has gone through the wringer during her five seasons on Bravo’s “The Real Housewives of Potomac,” but she’s grateful for the effects that those hard times have had on her as a person. “I’ve learned a lot on this journey. I’ve learned a lot about myself and what I can tolerate and what I can’t tolerate. I’ve even become more comfortable speaking my mind, because in this group it’s sink or swim,” Darby told In The Know’s Gibson Johns on the latest episode of “We Should Talk.” “You really do have to be able to stand your ground, say what you mean and stick by it. It’s been a growth opportunity for me, and my skin has gotten really thick.” “Becoming a mother changed me so much more than I ever anticipated. My patience is elevated even higher,” Darby explained. “There are so many things that you realize don’t have significance.” On where she stands with her husband, Michael Darby: During the current fifth season of “The Real Housewives of Potomac,” photos leaked of Michael with another woman. While Ashley told us that there are more tough times ahead, the couple ultimately gets through them. “That was a hard time for us for a minute. It’s not as though we just magically came out of that and all of a sudden our relationship was perfect. We worked through quite a bit of stuff, and we document all of that on the show,” she said. “There’s still quite a bit of a ride left on the rollercoaster with us, but as of now, especially with quarantine, we’ve had the chance to reconnect quite a bit and learn more about each other, so we’re even closer now than we’ve ever been.” On the scene where she confronts Michael about the photos and a producer steps in to intervene: “I really did not expect any of that to air. The conversation was already a little bit difficult because Michael and I, we kind of jumped around. I was like, ‘Man, I wonder how this is gonna transpire,'” Ashley said. “Then when James stepped in I was like, ‘Finally, I can just relax a little bit.’ I didn’t think that that was gonna be included. […] Turns out, whenever the cameras are on, it’s all fair game.” On other casts not being as open as the “Potomac” cast: While Ashley and most of her co-stars on “RHOP” have shared nearly everything with viewers, regardless of how tough or significant the topic, women from other “Real Housewives” franchises get away with avoiding similar life moments. “You’re really hitting a sore spot for not just me, but a lot of my cast mates, we feel this way. There’s a lot that we’re willing to share. It doesn’t make sense for us to not share certain elements of our lives, and we feel that,” Darby explained. “I don’t know how other franchises can get away with not being as transparent as us. I don’t know how some pieces of the puzzle can completely be omitted.” On avoiding the hot seat during Monique and Candiace’s fight: Right before the two castmates’ altercation, Ashley shared with the group that she and her husband had once had a slightly open marriage. That revelation was quickly overshadowed by what transpired between Candiace and Monique. “I had really hyped myself up to handle whatever they hurled my way, because I’ve been very vocal about opinons I have about other people’s relationships,” she laughed. “I was giving myself a little pep talk in the car, and then when that happened it was kind of like the Homer Simpson meme where I slid back into the bushes.” On where she stands with Monique vs Candiace: “Monique is well aware that I am not okay with what she did. I don’t condone what she did, and we’ve been very clear about that,” she told ITK. “She also knows that irrespective of that action, I still support her as her friend and I still care about her and I’m sill going to have her back no matter what.” On expecting her second child: “It feels good to finally be able to talk about it, since I talk about it so much with my family and with my friends, sometimes I slip and I would say things to people that aren’t as close to me. So, now, it’s nice, I can just… [sighs] sigh relief that I’m not going to spill any beans accidentally. It’s all out there.”
Real Housewives of Orange County's Braunwyn on why it's "good" original Housewife Vicki Gunvalson exited (Digital Spy exclusive) "I think it's good not having Vicki there because a lot of what she did last year was manufactured, fake drama and lies against [co-star Kelly Dodd]," Braunwyn told Digital Spy exclusively. "I'm not into that kind of thing, I don't really like that when women do that do each other." However, Braunwyn does feel Judge's loss on the show: "For me, I miss having Tamra there. Tamra and I got along great. She's still my friend… I miss having Tamra there. On camera and off camera, Tamra is a friend of mine. I think that will be the case forever. "It's just like with anything. When you graduate from college, you don't see your friends anymore. It's sad." "It definitely gave Shannon a chance to make closer relationships with other people," Braunwyn noted. "I'm glad Vicki's gone, I miss Tamra."
Jo De La Rosa Says Gretchen Rossi and Ex Slade Smiley’s Relationship Was ‘Hard to Look At’ (US Weekly exclusive) “I don’t think anybody likes to see their ex move on. Not that they don’t like to see it, but it’s always weird when they do,” De La Rosa, 40, tells Us Weekly exclusively on the Friday, October 9, episode of the “Getting Real with the Housewives” podcast. “You see it on Instagram or you hear about it. It doesn’t matter if you’re over the relationship or whatever. It’s always weird.” The “PopCandy” podcast co-host was just 26 when she made her debut on RHOC, but left the Bravo franchise after season 2. She admitted that she “needed time away” from reality TV. Additionally, Smiley, 46, and Rossi’s relationship was “hard to look at” and she was “really immature and didn’t understand it.” “It’s been years now and I feel like we’re all in such a great place and time heals all,” the Date My Ex alum tells Us. “So I think if I was asked to go back [to The Real Housewives] I’d definitely consider it and I would definitely do it.” Smiley and Rossi, 41, welcomed daughter Skylar, 14 months, in July 2019, while De La Rosa recently celebrated her 40th birthday. “I think everybody ended up exactly where they were meant to end up,” De La Rosa tells Us. “He’s happy, it seems like, I’m really happy, and so it all worked out as it should.”
Page Six linked to an old article about Kelly Dodd from 2016 that I had never seen before and omg this headline: What this ‘Housewife’ learned from comparing her husband to Hitler (Page Six) "Kelly Dodd’s husband, Michael, wasn’t too happy when his wife compared him to Adolf Hitler on national television. “He knows I call him that as a joke, because he used to act like that. But he was disappointed,” the “Real Housewives of Orange County” newbie told Page Six on Monday. “Nobody really wants to hear their spouse talking trash, but it made me look at myself and say, ‘I can’t do that. It’s not right.'” Dodd has since gotten used to her newfound fame and her 9-year-old daughter Jolie has also embraced life in front of the cameras. “My daughter loves it,” she shared. “The eighth-graders, the older girls, will talk to her about it more than the kids in her grade. I don’t think they even watch it.” As for Dodd’s future with the franchise, nothing is set in stone. “I would say there’s more good that came out of it than bad,” Dodd explained. “It was a great experience, a learning experience. I’m not quite sure if I want to go back because of how I was treated and I don’t need to be treated that way. “I was going on the show thinking it would be a lighthearted and more fun rather than in attack mode all the time,” she continued. “I’m not saying I’m perfect, I’ve said some things that weren’t appropriate, but you know, I think people like to see that and then again, I think a lot of people don’t.”

Tinsley Mortimer ‘proud’ of herself for leaving ‘RHONY’ (Page Six/Reality Life with Kate Casey Podcast) “I was really taking a leap of faith and really trying to trust my gut and follow my heart,” she explained of leaving the show on the “Reality Life with Kate Casey” podcast. “When I see myself driving off, I am proud of myself for doing it.” “Doing a reality show with all these strong women, it is really the best therapy you can ever have,” she said of her time holding an apple. “You are just in this intense world. It is your life, but amplified and so intense … There are these strange hierarchies on the show and these fourth wall issues that come on to camera. You have to be on your game and to be strong. When I joined the show I was at the lowest point of my life, I was so humiliated. I had been in a relationship that was awful. All of a sudden the script was flipped on me basically, the way the press was portraying it … It might have seemed like the wrong time to join a reality show, and be part of it but for me it seemed like the absolutely right time because there was no place to go, and to be in New York.” While she said the “chapter is closed” on “RHONY,” she maintained that her and Leah McSweeney developed a genuine friendship. “We had met and I had sort of tested her, filming together,” she explained. “We hung out a couple times and when she got the show I was so thrilled to have a younger girl on the show. I definitely had moments with different people. Sonja [Morgan] was more like an older sister to me, so in a way I didn’t feel like I could be wild and crazy. To have Leah there was really great.” She added, “I am still friends with Leah and talk to her all the time. I adore her. Hopefully, when the world gets to a place that is somewhat normal I will go back to New York, and I will see people. Can I say that I will reach out to some of the girls on the show if I am in New York? Probably not. Mainly Leah, and maybe Sonja. Of course, I will still watch the show. Maybe filming a scene or two in New York with Leah.” Now, Mortimer is focused on building her life with Coupon Cabin king Kluth. “We do want children, of course,” she said. “At this point we sort of feel like 2020, we are waiting for 2021 to do the things we planned like the wedding, and then we will work on the baby. That’s the plan.”
Teddi Mellencamp Feels She ‘Came Out Unscathed’ After ‘RHOBH’ Exit: ‘I Was Being Looked Out for’ (US Weekly exclusive) “In the big scheme of things, I came out unscathed. My kids are healthy and happy and my marriage is good and my friendships are good,” Mellencamp, 39, tells Us Weekly exclusively on the Friday, October 16, episode of the “Getting Real with the Housewives” podcast. “I’m still friends with a lot of the women on the show and I wish everybody a ton of success. I think that especially what we’re going through right now in the pandemic and all of these things, I feel like maybe I was, like, being looked out for in some way.” Mellencamp, who joined the cast of RHOBH during season 8, isn’t ruling out a return to the Bravo franchise in the future. “I’m not at that place where I can make that decision right now. I do know that I wouldn’t want to be in a situation where I was thrown in just make me feel uncomfortable,” the All In Founder tells Us. “So I have to see the situation then play it by ear.”

Too Hot to Handle’s Harry Jowsey Says He’s ‘Only Just Met’ Larsa Pippen Amid Dating Rumors (US Weekly) Not so fast! Harry Jowsey addressed the romance rumors surrounding him and Larsa Pippen after the two were spotted at dinner earlier this month. “So, the craziest thing is in this moment, like, we all have friends, we all hang out, and we all go to dinner,” Jowsey, 23, said on the Thursday, October 15, episode of the “Let Me Finish” podcast. “But the craziest thing in this space, which I’m quickly realizing, is if I go to dinner with anyone and there’s photo taken, we’re automatically dating and expecting a child.” Jowsey, who revealed he’s currently on a “sex ban,” added that Pippen is “great” and “she’s doing well” before noting that a romance between the two isn’t totally off the table. “She’s a lovely human,” he said. “I’ve only just met her, so who knows what will happen?” The Australia native and the former Real Housewives of Miami star first sparked relationship rumors this month when they were seen looking cozy at Italian restaurant Il Pastaio in Beverly Hills. Later in the evening, Pippen shared a video via her Instagram Story and revealed that she “called my friend Harry” for help after deciding she needed dance lessons."
Also to be taken with a grain of salt as it's not been verified: Teresa Giudice and Jackie Goldschnider reportedly feud this season about cheating allegations, which caused a rift between Jackie and the entire cast! (Hollywood Life/realhousewivesfranchise Instagram) “Jackie was initially upset because Teresa said [her husband] Evan [Goldschneider] was cheating on Jackie. Then, they got together to resolve that, but then, Jackie put gasoline on the fire by digging into Teresa and Teresa’s fiery personality took over and things between them got worse,” a source told Hollywood Life. That conversation led to Jackie skipping the cast’s Season 11 trip, but then they got together again and “resolved everything.” The source explained, “They both wronged each other. They both apologized and moved past it — they are now in a good place.” “This season will be the season of Jackie. At one point, she was only talking to Melissa [Gorga] because everyone else sided with Teresa and she felt it was ridiculous that they were choosing sides. However, Melissa continued to stay neutral and always had Jackie’s back.” Production did “take a pause”, however, “as Jackie refused to film because she was so upset that the women would all side with Teresa over everything. She was over the drama of people always siding with Teresa no matter what and not having their own voice or opinion. Even Margaret [Josephs], who has always had [Jackie’s] back, strayed a bit and that upset Jackie, so she distanced herself and needed a break from filming.” The insider continued, “Now that the two ladies have made up, Jackie is so much more at ease.” Plus, “it’s really helped bring the group together now that Teresa and Jackie have made up again.” RHONJ season 11 films until the end of October, with a February 2021 premiere date."

Porsha Williams says she’s ‘been’ single (Page Six) "Porsha Williams is on the prowl. The “Real Housewives of Atlanta” star, 39, and her on-again-off-again fiancé Dennis McKinley have split again. McKinley commented that he was “SINGLE ASFK” on a now-deleted Instagram story, while Williams commented on an Instagram post that she has “been single.” McKinley first proposed to Williams in October 2018 with a 13-carat ring and they welcomed their daughter in March of that year. But they never made it down the aisle, as they split eight months later following a cheating scandal. They eventually got back together, but their reconciliation didn’t last and their relationship problems were a storyline on the Bravo show."
Stripper Denies Allegations Of Sexual Activity With Any Real Housewives Of Atlanta At Cynthia Bailey’s Bachelorette Party (Reality Tea) "In an Instagram post, Michael Bolwaire, aka Bolo the Entertainer, aka “not just A stripper, THE stripper”, wants to set the record straight.

RHOP's Karen Huger Explains Her ‘Press Charges’ Comments To Candiace (bossip.com) "The Grande Dame shared on Twitter that she’s “not a fighter” so SHE, Karen Huger, would’ve taken action immediately. ” I would call for help 911,” said Karen. "If it were ME, which it was NOT because I am not a fighter and when there IS conflict, I look for solutions and am known to take a time out- I would hope never to be in that situation. But IF by some miracle of miracles it did happen to me, I would call for help." She later expounded on her words on The Bravo Aftershow and told producers that she was trying to be supportive of both ladies, but if she were Candiace, the police and ambulance would have to “pick her up off the floor.” “I wasn’t going to choose one friend over the other, that was clear out of the gate for me,” said Karen. “Whatever you all needed I was going to provide for either one or both of them and I respect her as a grown woman. She [Candiace] asked me what would I have done if it were me and I answered her.” “Now see, here’s the caveat,” she also added. “I would have pressed charges at the fight, I’m not Candiace but if I were Candiace, which I am not—if I were in a fight y’all would know I would be innocent. And so 9-1-1, right there, okay?! Oh no, I wouldn’t have moved! My wig would have been on the floor, stayed on the floor with my body. And the cops and the ambulance would remove me, I’d be in shock!”
‘RHOBH’ Bravo Executive Reveals Why Production Broke the 4th Wall This Season (cheatsheet/Bravo's Daily Dish) "The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills made the unprecedented move of breaking the fourth wall this season. Erica Forstadt, Vice President, Current Production at Bravo, explained exactly why season 10 was shot this way. “The only way to tell a story is to tell it’s truth,” Forstadt told Bravo’s The Daily Dish. “And I think we had no choice but to break the fourth wall this season with what was happening with Denise [Richards] and the other women. It was the only way to tell an honest and true narrative.” Forstadt said production had no choice but to allow certain moments that would normally be cut to flow with the season. “And that really came from the production company,” she said. “They pitched it to us. They said, ‘This is how we’d like to tell the story.’ And both Kathleen and I, who also oversees the show, agreed.” “I think [breaking the fourth wall] is incredibly important,” she continued. “As a fan of the Housewives, and I’ve watched so many different seasons of shows. And even Beverly Hills, and this was before I worked on it, there would be times where there’d be conversations between, let’s say Lisa Vanderpump and somebody else.” "And they were kind of talking in code,” she said. “As a viewer, I was always trying to figure out what they were talking about. And sometimes I just didn’t understand. If you remember the season where Lisa and Kyle [Richards] and [Lisa] Rinna … it was the year of Munchausen. ‘You brought me out and you wanted me to say it.’ I remember watching it and saying, ‘But what really happened? Because I don’t really understand what they’re talking about.'” “I think it’s still enjoyable,” she said. “And I still loved watching it as a viewer. But with this season, no way we could tell the story without doing what we did.” Forstadt said she learned later in the evening after Glanville told Teddi Mellencamp and Richards she hooked up with Denise Richards. “The showrunner and I talk all the time,” she remarked. “So that night I believe he texted me the information and I immediately called him. That was shocking.” She also addressed the timing of when Glanville told Mellencamp and Richards and the trip to Rome. Some fans wondered if the conversation between Glanville, Richards, and Mellencamp was staged too. “I would like to put that rumor to rest,” Forstadt said. “And say that that was actually shot exactly when it was shot. It was shot before they went to Rome.” “So the reaction of Teddi and Kyle in that moment,” she added. “And not knowing what to do, because they were going to be seeing Denise shortly, it was completely real.”
'RHOBH' Lisa Vanderpump's Husband Sued For $80,000 Over Alleged Villa Blanca Unpaid Rent (The Blast) "According to court documents obtained by The Blast, Golden Triangle Building LLC is suing Blanca Investments LLC and Kenneth Todd. The plaintiffs accuse the defendants of breach of lease and breach of guaranty and declaratory relief. The suit says the defendants signed a lease with them in 2009 to open Villa Blanca. The plaintiff says “Defendants are required during the Lease to pay Base Rent and Additional Rent.” Further, “Notwithstanding the requirements of the Lease, Tenants failed and refused to make all the payments of Rent due under the lease. The lease was not terminated …. and Plaintiff does not intend to terminate the Lease.” The landlord accuses the defendants of failing to comply with applicable Covid-19 ordinances such as “they have no protections in connection with the amounts due and owing.” The suit says Ken claims to have paid a $40,000 security deposit but they have no record of it. The suit says the defendants claim to have terminated the lease agreement themselves. The landlord says they had no right to terminate the lease and believes it’s still active.

"You were strangely calm, I think, for all of the stuff that was going on. Here we are coming into your home," he said. "Set up on your table, you had all of these supplements, all these things for all the crew. It was just a really touching moment." According to Bobby, it was far from the first time Shannon made taking care of the crew a top priority. "One of my first times working with Shannon, I remember that you just kept looking at the crew. We were in a restaurant, you kept looking at us like, 'Aren't you hungry? Aren't you hungry? It's getting late,'" he recalled before revealing what mouth-watering food she bought for the team because, as Bobby explained, "It was late and, yes, we were hungry." Noting that she loves "the sense of family" that the RHOC cast and crew has, Shannon explained, "Everybody looks after each other and, you know, we go through things together."
For anyone who missed it yesterday: Bethenny Frankel splits from boyfriend Paul Bernon after two years together (Page Six) "Bethenny Frankel and boyfriend Paul Bernon have called it quits after two years of dating, Page Six has exclusively learned. “They broke up a couple of weeks [ago], and are saying it’s because of distance, but you know Bethenny,” a source told us. The couple met in 2018 after Frankel’s on-and-off boyfriend, Dennis Shields, died. “I remember telling Tinsley [Mortimer], ‘I really like him,’ ” Frankel said of Bernon during her final “Real Housewives of New York City” reunion (she left the Bravo show in 2019). “And I felt like an idiot, because I was saying I felt like it could be the one or something. I was really into him and we went out a couple of times. And I just wasn’t really ready … I wanted someone to give me a guaranteed, ‘This is the guy’ because I didn’t want to get hurt.” Frankel and Bernon, who lives in Boston, often posted selfies from their getaways and doted on each other in Instagram posts. “I like me better when I’m with you,” she captioned one selfie last year, referencing Lauv’s song “I Like Me Better.” He responded: “I’m good as long as you’re here with me.” The duo even celebrated #NationalCouplesDay in August. But they split just as they were to hit their two-year anniversary in September. Meanwhile, Frankel is still fighting to get divorced from her estranged husband, Jason Hoppy, after ending their relationship seven years ago. “I’m still married,” Frankel revealed to Andy Cohen when she appeared on his “Watch What Happens Live” show last month. Splits aside, the Skinnygirl mogul recently launched her new “Just B” podcast and it’s “going great,” according to another insider. “She is lining up really good guests, A-listers! She’s featured at the top of new business shows on Apple,” said the insider, who was mum on the split. Frankel previously hosted a daytime talk show, which lasted one season."

Leah McSweeney Shares an Update on Tinsley Mortimer’s Chicago Fairytale Life (bravotv.com/The Daily Dish) "Leah McSweeney offered an update on the October 3 episode of The Daily Dish podcast shortly after she visited the lovebirds to celebrate her birthday in Arizona. “I know she misses the show. I know she liked doing the show,” said Leah. “Obviously, relationships are everything. Love is everything, you know? So, it makes complete sense that she left, and it's as important for her to show that he was the priority.” Leah also shared some insight into how she’s seen Tinsley change since her move. “I think that she seems a lot more carefree. She’s just, she’s really happy. It was really great spending time with her and him. He’s a great guy.,” Leah said. “I had never met him before. He and Tinsley were both so concerned about if Kiki was having fun or not. And he was really engaging with my daughter. He was finding things to relate to her about, and having conversations and you know, that meant a lot to me. That means everything to me, is how you treat my kid. They just treated her with such respect and were so interested in getting to know her, that it really just warmed my heart. Me and Kier had such a good time with them.”

Why Kim Zolciak Was ‘Pissed’ at Andy Cohen (In The Know podcast/heavy.com) "During a recent interview, former Real Housewivesof Atlanta and Don’t Be Tardy star Kim Zolciak spoke about why she was “pissed off” at Andy Cohen during last year’s BravoCon, and the story behind their performance together. During last year’s BravoCon, Zolciak performed her hit song, ” Don’t Be Tardy”, alongside Cohen. Zolciak explained to In The Know that she was originally annoyed at Cohen for putting her on a panel with Housewives who weren’t on the network anymore. “First of all, Andy called me and I was like, ‘why am I on a panel with Housewives that aren’t even on TV anymore?'” Zolciak told In The Know. “Like, why am I with all these girls? I was pissed, actually. And Andy was like, it’s basically because I’m not a Housewife either, in essence, right. It was the people that started the franchises, but I didn’t take it that way…so I was pissed, and I texted his a** and then we got on the phone and he’s like, ‘listen, I think you should come out and sing.’ And I was like, ‘dude, I’m 42, like I’ve had kids, I’m not into it.” Zolciak continued, “I said, let me think about it. And then I was like, ‘I don’t think I can do it’ to Kroy, because I am actually shy… So then Andy’s like, ‘l’ll sing with you.’ And then I was like, ‘Ok, then I’ll do it if you sing with me.'”
This is ‘The Real Housewives of Orange County’ newest addition, Elizabeth Lyn Vargas (OC Register) "A rescue puppy is nipping at Elizabeth Lyn Vargas when the newest member of “The Real Housewives of Orange County” calls. That almost seems like good preparation for handling the other housewives and a metaphor for the way her life may soon change with TV fame. It’s all good to Vargas, though, who laughs often during a 20-minute call to discuss how she joined the show, what filming was like, and what she expects and worries about as Season 15 kicks off on Wednesday, Oct. 14. “The journey has been amazing,” Vargas says as Koda, her older husky, and Mika, the new husky rescue, calm down. “And I didn’t realize the journey was going to be so amazing, so I’m pretty proud and happy about the decision to be on the show.” Vargas, who lives by the sand in Newport Beach, says her friendship with housewife Kelly Dodd encouraged led her to join the franchise when longtime housewives Vicki Gunvalson and Tamra Judge left the show. Vargas says she and Dodd had become friends, even though Vargas had never watched a single episode of the series prior to being cast on it. “I had never seen the show,” she says. “So maybe that’s why we hit it off. “I didn’t know what to expect with the tornado,” Vargas says, and laughs. A friend who manages the rapper Too Short urged her to apply for the opening after Vicki and Tamra left and then accompanied her to the first of several auditions and interviews. (If this leads to a Too Short cameo, “Real Housewives” will level-up to new heights of awesome and weird.) Around the time Vargas got the gig, she decided it was time to finally watch an episode. “I just said, ‘You know what, I want to do this,’” she says. “So here we are. I was a little nervous because I did watch one of the shows. I was like, ‘Ohhh. Well, this will be fun!’” In past seasons, the Tres Amigas — Vicki, Tamra and Shannon — have been the slowest to welcome a new housewife into the skinny margarita sisterhood of the show. With two of the three gone, and Vargas exhibiting an entirely likable personality in the season premiere, she says all went smoothly for her. “The women on the show are extremely strong and smart,” she says. “Knowing that and asking around, I was very excited to meet all of them because it takes some serious (moxie) to put yourself out there and be as bold and bright and beautiful as they are.” Kelly and the other newer housewives — Emily Simpson, Gina Kirschenheiter and Braunwyn Windham-Burke — were easy to meet, and even Shannon, who’d given those three a tough time in their first seasons, was a peach, Vargas says. “Everybody told me, ‘Oh my god, be super-nervous when you meet her,’” she says of Beador. “And I’m thinking, ‘Oh my god, she’s gonna bite me? What does she do? Does she sprout fangs?’” One thing she thought about as she made her decision to join the show was the fact that her three-year-long journey through “a very, very difficult divorce” was still not finished at that point. “I was looking for something to distract my mind and have fun with,” Vargas says, adding that she already felt exposed by the divorce process. “So frankly, when this opportunity came about, I said, ‘Well, whatever, I’m already out there.’ Vargas co-founded and ran the music streaming company Edge Music, but her latest passion, which gets a bit of air time in the premiere, is animal rescue. “When I was finalizing my divorce and going to trial, I thought, What do I want to do next,” she says. “I want to help animals because my dogs and my animals have always been there for me through thick and thin. Koda was there for me all through my divorce.” Her goal is to launch an organization called We Care Rescue Ranch somewhere in Orange County to work with animals deemed unadoptable in order to rehabilitate them and find them homes. The coronavirus pandemic has temporarily turned her focus to fundraising to provide food for existing animal rescue groups. “I’m thinking, ‘Oh my gosh, there’s a current ecosystem out there that needs help. Why don’t I just raise funds for them because that’s what I’m good at,’” Vargas says. “I can educate myself on what’s out there and then know what’s needed instead of just diving in and trying to build something that I know nothing about.” She’s also got a side business to debut later this year, Vargas vodka. Given how the housewives throw ’em back, it will surely make her popular come happy hour. Overall, the experience has been good, Vargas says. “It’s a wonderful experience to be with strong women,” she says. “Everyone has their differences, and we all – I – learned about everyone’s opinions on the show. “But overall, it was an exciting experience, and I can’t wait for future seasons because it’s just fun. I mean, no matter what our differences are, whatever we argue about, we still love each other in the end. “That’s my hope.”
Terry Dubrow claims a former patient is extorting him for $5M after alleged botched surgery (Page Six exclusive details) "Dr. Terry Dubrow claims he’s being extorted for $5 million by a former patient who says she nearly died after going under the knife. The A-list plastic surgeon has now filed for a court order against Sandy Scoggins — who underwent a buttock lift from Dubrow last year — saying she demanded $5 million in exchange for not going public with her negligence claims, per Orange County Superior Court documents obtained by Page Six on Thursday. Dubrow, 62, claimed that in July, Scoggins’ lawyer sent him 901-page demand packet — including a $5 million pre-litigation settlement — plus a letter stating that if he didn’t settle, Scoggins would file a federal lawsuit “so she can tell the world what happened to her,” according to court docs. He claimed in the documents that Scoggins “and her attorneys embarked on an extortion campaign, threatening Dr. Dubrow repeatedly” that they’d report him to the California Medical Board and file a federal lawsuit “with an intent to ‘tell the world,’ ‘the media’ and ‘anyone’ about Ms. Scoggins’ claims,” plus “drag Dr. Dubrow’s television show ‘Botched’ (even though Ms. Scoggins’ surgery had nothing to do with the show) in to the lawsuit, as well as his Rox Medical Center, his staff, and media companies with which he does business, and … accuse him of falsifying Ms. Scoggins’ medical records.” However, Dubrow denied that he was negligent in her care and rejected the proposed settlement in the filing. Instead, he asked the court to bring the case back into arbitration to make it private, per an agreement she signed ahead of her surgery in 2019. “Ms. Scoggins’ extortionate tactics demonstrate that she fully intends on ignoring the Arbitration Agreement in order to harass and attempt to harm Dr. Dubrow’s livelihood and reputation with a media smear campaign that uses a public court filing as its vehicle,” he wrote in the filing. “The truth of the matter is that Ms. Scoggins’ surgery was conducted with the utmost professional care and attention.” Scoggins first sought for Dubrow’s expertise for a revision buttock lift with fat flaps in June 2019, the documents stated. Dubrow claimed that he made her aware of all of the risks and possible complications of the procedure during her consultation and she “was specifically advised of the inherent and substantial risks of complications resulting from plastic surgery and the need for post-operative medical care, which she would have to receive by another doctor upon returning home to Texas,” according to court docs. He claimed that she understood what could happen and the procedure was performed in July 2019. The last time the doctor and the patient spoke, per court documents, was October 2019. Scoggins’ attorney, Stephen Le Brocq, told Page Six exclusively on Thursday: “Ms. Scoggins went to Dubrow to receive a surgery that was supposed to change her life, and it did, but in the worst way imaginable. Scoggins was ‘Botched by Botched.'” Dubrow could not be reached for comment."

'REAL HOUSEWIVES OF NY' Hires Eboni K. Williams (TMZ) The "Real Housewives of New York City" is making a little history ... now that producers have hired their first Black cast member in the show's 13-year run. TMZ's learned the Bravo series hired Eboni K. Williams to join the Big Apple ladies for season 13, which is already in production. The attorney and TV host is ecstatic about her new gig, telling us ... "NYC is filled with successful and dynamic Black women. I’m excited to join this legendary franchise as the first Black housewife. Can’t wait to share a slice of life in this city that hasn’t been seen before." She added, "Anyone who’s aware of my work knows I don’t hold back. I’m going to keep it just as real here as I do everywhere else." The 37-year-old Charlotte native co-hosted "FOX News Specialists" before leaving FNC at the end of 2018. For a short time, Eboni co-hosted a talk show on WABC Radio in NYC and currently co-hosts "State of the Culture" on Diddy's REVOLT TV. Eboni earned her law degree from Loyola University New Orleans College of Law -- and she clerked for Louisiana's Secretary of State and the state's Attorney General. Bottom line ... she can hold her own in an argument, which should come in handy. As we reported, the show's producers also shot with Bershan Shaw, another potential Black housewife. In the end, they decided Eboni was the better fit as a full-time cast member. We're told it's still possible Bershan will make appearances."
Shannon Beador on the Demise of the Tres Amigas and Starting Fresh on 'RHOC' (ET Online Exclusive) "Shannon Storms Beador is the last "amiga" standing on The Real Housewives of Orange County, and she's OK with that -- though it did take some getting used to for the 56-year-old. "I'm not gonna lie, at the very beginning of filming I was a little concerned, because I didn't really have close relationships with any of the cast," Shannon tells ET over video chat from her Newport Beach home. "But you know, what has been nice about it is that I have been able to develop those relationships now that Vicki and Tamra aren't there." Shannon says what Tamra and Vicki have put out there is simply not true (re: the demise of their friendship), at least not her truth. She suggests she didn't know how they were feeling because the women went to the press first, instead of to Shannon. "I dispute what they've said," she says. "I am not the person to sink down to a level to argue with people -- that I consider close friends -- in the press or on social media. That's not who I am, that's not what I'm made of, so I just feel like I have a little bit more decorum than they do. I don't wanna engage with them, except to say that the things that they've been saying, especially Tamra, it's a laundry list of things that aren't true." Shannon, who is now RHOC*'*s longest-running current star (she joined in season 9), says she has no contact with her former "BFFs," with no plans to change that in the near future, either. "It's interesting when people say, 'You can pick up the phone….' What moron would pick up the phone when someone's been bashing them for months on end?" she asks. "I mean, it almost got to a point where it was weekly, where yet another untruth [would come out] and, you know -- I take the high road in those situations, and I'm gonna continue to do that." "I really have no reason to be around them anymore," Shannon adds. "We live, like, 45 minutes away from each other, so it's not like we're in the same social circles or anything like that. I don't know when I would ever potentially run into them again." "I suppose I should never say never, 'cause I'm one of those people that have said, 'I'm done!' And then we're friends, and Kelly Dodd might be an example of that. So, never say never, but for now I don’t, I have no desire.” Shannon says Kelly, her frenemy on the show for five years now, actually helped her process the end of her relationship with Vicki and Tamra, who was publicly upset when Shannon shared a photo posing with Kelly. "It just hurt my feelings," Tamra said to ET. "She was always the one telling me last year, 'Don't hang out with Kelly, don't hang out with Kelly, don't hang out with Kelly,’ you know?” Shannon says her opinion of Kelly was largely based on Tamra's experience with the outspoken Housewife. The pair sparred for years, especially in Tamra's final season, sharing below-the-belt jabs back and forth episode after episode. "I'm a very loyal friend, so if you attack my best friend, in my eyes you're attacking me," Shannon explains. "I had some revelations after she kind of explained what she was doing. Now, do I think her intentions towards Tamra were kind or nice? No. But I took them personally, that she was going after me, as well, and she explained to me that she wasn't and what she said made sense to me, so when I hear that, I'm going to give her another chance." Shannon and Kelly’s journey toward friendship will be a central part of the early episodes of *RHOC'*s 15th season. The women are now neighbors, living within walking distance of one another. "I don't like to argue with anyone," she adds. "I do have opinions -- always -- and I have no fear of expressing them. That being said, I don't like to be in arguments with people, I just don't." Kelly’s behavior during the coronavirus pandemic has sparked much controversy in the Real Housewives fanbase. The 45-year-old spent much of the first few weeks of California’s lockdown orders traveling the country, hopping up and down the East Coast with her fiancé, Fox News correspondent Rick Leventhal. Amid her travels, the reality star frequently went on Instagram Live to share her non-expert opinions on the state of the virus, even suggesting everyone should go out and catch COVID-19 "like chickenpox," among other comments. She's apologized for some, but Kelly's never stopped posting on social media about the virus, often sharing false information. "I don't necessarily agree with a lot of things that she said," Shannon says of Kelly’s pandemic activity. "She puts her foot in her mouth a lot and it's not good. You know, when this pandemic first hit, I was petrified. Like I couldn't sleep. I was a mess, and so people are still dying from it. It's a serious illness and you don't know if you're going to be seriously affected by it or not." Shannon and her three daughters -- Sophie, 18, and twins Adeline and Stella, 16 -- contracted the virus over the summer. They documented their battle with the disease for RHOC, and Shannon says some of Kelly’s comments have been “horrible.” Kelly continues to spark more controversy with her seeming lack of interest in, or concern for, the call for racial justice in America. She recently defended wearing a hat emblazoned with the phrase "Drunk Wives Matter," stylized to look like the Black Lives Matter logo. Fans should expect to see the cast discuss both the pandemic and the reckoning on racism with Kelly onscreen this season, most likely by way of Braunwyn Windham-Burke. The season 14 newbie has been outspoken on social media about the social movement and the 2020 presidential election. Shannon seems to have mixed feelings about Braunwyn this season, even though they spent most of season 14 in a good place. Judging by the trailer, Braunwyn finds herself at odds with most of the women in her sophomore season. "She just kind of, I feel like, came in guns blazing and I think you see from the trailer I'm not pleased with some of the things that she's done," Shannon shares. "I think you'll see in the season some of us kind of perplexed a little bit about what's going on with her." "All of us kind of have our antennas raised with Braunwyn this season," she teases. "Was the love shack real? Was it really?" There's also a new girl this year, Elizabeth Lyn Vargas, and historically, Shannon has not gotten along with the new cast members (for reference, see: Meghan King Edmonds, Peggy Sulahian, Gina Kirschenheiter, Emily Simpson and, most famously, Lydia McLaughlin). "She's a lot, Elizabeth Vargas is a lot," Shannon admits. "I had fun with her … she was fun, but you know, we kind of had a little something, too. She's a very complex person and I'll just leave it at that. There's a lot of layers to peel off." Fans can judge Elizabeth for themselves -- and everything else that unfolds in season 15 -- when The Real Housewives of Orange County premieres next Wednesday, Oct. 14, at 9 p.m. ET/PT on Bravo."
Erika Girardi Claps Back at Critic Who Questioned What Her Son Would Think of Her Lingerie Photos (people.com) "The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star recently clapped back at an Instagram commenter who used her 26-year-old police officer son, Tommy Zizzo, to shame her photos. “Hum, whats your son think about these types of photos you post and all his fellow officers seeing it?” the user wrote below photos Girardi shared of herself posing in lingerie and heels.

‘RHOBH’: Thom Filicia From ‘Queer Eye’ Has the Inside Scoop Behind ‘Puppygate’ (cheatsheet.com) "Filicia got the scoop when he did Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen and Kyle Richards from RHOBH was a co-guest. “I was on with Kyle and everyone loves Kyle,” Filicia recounted on the Behind the Velvet Rope with David Yontef podcast. “So I was super excited to meet her,” he recalled. “Because I thought she was going to be this amazing person and so great. And I watched the episodes and I have to say her husband’s like, I love him. He seems like a really great guy. And a great dad and he’s kind of hunky. I’ve actually seen him at Aspen with his daughters. You know, because I’m a big skier. But I have to say, I didn’t think she was super savvy. Because I couldn’t believe that she bought this story about the dog.” “The interesting thing about that dog, which I can’t believe I’m talking about it because I couldn’t believe how boring the whole thing was,” Filicia said. “But Dorit and her husband, I think she just wanted that dog because it was like a good storyline. And she got the dog and they don’t really want a dog.” “And so what I found out behind the scenes, which was not talked about on Watch What Happens Live is that what was posed to me was that,” he added. “And I don’t even want to repeat how it was said because I think it was one of the tackiest things anyone has ever said to me.” “But what it was, it was about how it was $5,000 to return the dog to [Vanderpump Dogs] you know, shelter or whatever,” he said. “So to avoid the $5,000, that’s the real reason that the dog was put where it was put, but no one wanted to talk about that on television.” "I don’t know if that was ever talked about, but I do know in the green room behind that, I was told, ‘Look, I’m rich, but $5,000 is $5,000.’ And I was like, ‘We’re talking about a dog. We’re not talking about a house plant.’ You know what I mean?” Filicia said. “And if you sign a contract, just follow the rules, you know, and it’s like they all live very excessive lifestyles and I’m just like, I’m sure $5,000 is a dinner.” “So just do the right thing,” he said. “Be an elegant person. Step up to the plate and you know, be real. So I was just kind of like, huh?” Filicia added, “They said ‘I can’t believe that she was trying to be kind of difficult about this.’ And I was like, actually, she was kind of nice about it on camera, but like I said, but apparently, she was defending Dorit at this time.”
Brandi Glanville slams Ramona Singer on her ‘mortifying’ behaviour! (realhousewivesfranchise Instagram/Brandi Glanville unfiltered podcast) "On her Brandi Glanville Unfiltered podcast on October 2, Brandi spoke with former RHONY cast member Barbara Kavovit about Ramona. Brandi noted that she met Ramona in Los Angeles when Kristen Taekman, invited her to dinner with them. “I was mortified. I had two of my girlfriends with me, she was so rude to them, she was rude to the waiter, she was rude to everyone and I was just like, I come to this restaurant all the time, I know the waiter’s name, he’s nice, you can’t treat people like shit,” Brandi said during the podcast. Although Brandi was less than impressed with Ramona’s behaviour at dinner, she did admit that Ramona makes good TV. “I do like to watch her delusion,” Brandi laughed. “She really believes all of this stuff that she’s saying! I can’t say that I don’t enjoy her on the show because I do, I love a crazy person. She believes everything that she says, she believes everything that comes out of her own mouth and it’s just … I don’t even think she listens to other people. It’s just her way or the highway.”
RHOP star Wendy Osefo talks her first season as a housewife: My kids keep me grounded (Champagne and Shade) “It has been a journey, to say the least,” Wendy said of the path to becoming the newest Real Housewife of Potomac, noting that after friends and family gave their blessing for her to join the cast, she knew she would regret not joining while she had the opportunity. “I was asked to join the cast, and at first I didn’t want to do it,” But Wendy continued that over time, and with the encouragement of her family, she decided to do it. “I did not want to be 90 years old and look back on my life and be like ‘Oh, what would have happened if I did this?'” Her first introductions to the group were through Candiace Dillard Bassett and Karen Huger, even though we know how Karen handled that. “‘Good terms’ is an interesting word, we’re not friends,” Wendy laughed when asked if she was on good terms with Karen at the time. She added that there is no ill-will towards Huger, but they are not friends. On that same note, she explained that watching Karen’s interviews on the show was eye-opening. “If you notice, everything Karen has said about me has been in her confessionals. There hasn’t been anything that she’s said to me to my face so that was interesting watching it back. You know, where all her comments about me were in her confessionals.” As far as favorite moments from her first season as a housewife, Wendy says that the sip and see for her daughter, Kamrynn, was the obvious choice. The party was done in a way to welcome baby Kamrynn to the world in a traditional Nigerian way. That will certainly be a memory their family can look back on forever. It also sounds like Wendy’s boys both have enjoyed watching their mom join the show. When discussing ways she uses to unplug from the whole “housewives” world, Wendy credits her family for keeping her grounded. “My kids keep me grounded,” Wendy confessed. “You have to know what is a priority in your life and who is a priority in your life, and for me, my children are definitely that.” (more in article)

Gabourey Sidibe Still Feels Bad About Shading Porsha Williams From ‘RHOA’: ‘I Think About It All the Time’ (cheatsheet.com) "She was on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen, and said something she truly regrets. According to Sidibe, she commented on Porsha Williams of RHOA. Now, she’s more careful when on podcasts and shows that discuss real people. “It’s really hard to talk about these housewives. I was on Watch What Happens Live and I said something that later I felt so bad. I said something about Porscha, insinuating that she was not very smart, and I think about it all the time … I feel bad.” Sidibe knows what it’s like to be talked about. It’s part of being an actor, but that doesn’t mean it doesn’t hurt. “All the time, I’m just sitting here and all of a sudden somebody will say some sh*t about me on TV. And I’ll be like, ‘I was just sitting here! Why’d you do that? I don’t know you!’ I would never want something to feel that way.” She feels bad that she may have done that to Williams, so now she’s more careful about what she says."

Dorinda Medley Opens Up About Her RHONY Exit for the First Time (E! Online exclusive) "Telling her side of the story. Dorinda Medley is speaking out about her departure from The Real Housewives of New York City for the first time since she announced she was leaving the show in August. How? With help from someone who's been in her position before: Bethenny Frankel. More specifically, Dorinda is set to appear on Tuesday, Oct. 6's all-new episode of Bethenny's podcast Just B—and lucky for Housewives fanatics, we've got an exclusive sneak peek of their revealing conversation. In the above clip, Dorinda begins by acknowledging that she "did not have a good season this year." "...so I'm not gonna make excuses for it," she says. "But I was doing real. You know, that's where I was at that time." "I'll be honest with you, I felt very, very scared going into the season because not only was my life very intense with all the things...the house, my father, [I] broke a rib, breaking up with John..." Dorinda says before Bethenny cuts her off to provide context for those who might not have watched season 12 of the Bravo show: "She broke up with her boyfriend, her father got sick and her house flooded." "Yeah, and then I broke my rib," Dorinda adds. "So it was like, wow...I was sort of a toothpick in an ocean. I didn't get my voice out correctly." Bethenny agrees, explaining that on the show, "You get in over your skeeze." "You drink, something happens, you say something, and then you're in your head about what you just said, but the show must go on," Bethenny says. The Skinnygirl founder continues, "You're still filming, there's still cameras. So that's what is challenging and that's where I do feel you." Bethenny then describes what she says comes after a Housewife has a bad season: "Everybody always gets their resurrection season. So the next season, the person is super cautious." "Listen, I had a rough season. But that's what we do as Housewives," Dorinda responds. "We have good seasons. We have bad seasons. We come back and we change it up." And for a while, Dorinda thought she'd be able to do just that on season 13 of RHONY. "I was looking forward to coming back this year. I was looking forward to having that moment," she tells Bethenny. "I mean, when I found out when this thing all went down, I was just getting off the phone with this woman who's doing a Blue Stone Manor gingerbread house. And I'm thinking, 'It's gonna be great for the show! Oh my god, this is gonna be my season. I'm gonna come back 'cause everything's done, I'm in a good place.'" Dorinda continues, "So it really was...you know, no one likes rejection." Bethenny agrees, comparing the situation to a bad first date: "You hope the guy calls and then you get to go again to just, like, make it nice. You wanted to make it nice! That's the truth." As the preview clip comes to a close, Dorinda lays it all out there. "I didn't talk because I didn't want to talk," she explains. "I was ready to go back. I was excited about going back. I was planning on going back. And I thought I would have a great year. I wasn't given that option. So do with that as you want." "They're calling it a pause, which I don't really...for me, I'm an old-fashioned girl," Dorinda adds. "If you're not waitressing and getting paid, you're not waitressing...At the end of the day, it was a mutual 'no.' This is pretty much the first time I've spoken as honestly outside of you and I talking that I've done." To hear the full sit-down with Dorinda, listen to Just B with Bethenny Frankel, airing tomorrow, Tuesday, Oct. 6, on Apple Podcasts, Spotify and wherever you get your podcasts."
Tamra Judge Totally Transformed Her House with a New Color (bravotv.com) "While Tamra Judge shared in June that she still had "some work to do outside” as she renovated her Covenant Hills house, The Real Housewives of Orange County alum is now excitedly unveiling the home's brand new exterior. "Bye bye yellow house," Tamra captioned an Instagram Story photo showing the abode's new bright white paint. The paint job appeared to be a work in progress, as protective plastic still covered multiple parts of the exterior and the home's former yellow color was still visible on one side of the steps leading up to the house. Since moving back into the home (which was previously occupied by renters) earlier this year after selling their $2 million Coto de Caza property, Tamra and Eddie Judge have put in major work on renovating the house. In March, Tamra revealed that she was removing arches in the kitchen, putting in new lighter flooring throughout, and updating her laundry room with a stunning black-and-white patterned tile. Additionally, Tamra gutted her bathroom and closet to create one extravagant suite. "I’m absolutely obsessed with it," Tamra shared with her Instagram followers after the renovation was complete. "Still need window treatments, rugs. The shower came out amazing, and uh hello, the closet!”

Andy Cohen denies Caitlyn Jenner, Sophia Hutchins are joining ‘RHOBH’ (Page Six exclusive details) "Andy Cohen is shutting down rumors that Caitlyn Jenner and Sophia Hutchins are in talks to join the next season of “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.” The Bravo head honcho shared on his Sirius XM radio show on Thursday that he barely knows who Hutchins is. “I know that she’s Caitlyn’s girlfriend, right?” he told his co-host John Hill. “Well, roommate and manager,” Hill, 41, responded. Cohen, 52, then clarified that any reports of Jenner, 70, or Hutchins, 24, joining “RHOBH” are a classic example in which “the call is coming from inside the house,” implying that Jenner or Hutchins may have started the rumor themselves. “I know that they have expressed their interest publicly,” Cohen said. “On social media, they’ve tagged me in posts saying, ‘This is a great idea,’ but … we’ve never talked to them formally. That rumor is not true.” The “WWHL” host appeared hesitant when asked whether he would ever consider having Jenner on the reality show even in a “friend of the Housewives” role, saying, “No, I just don’t see it.” A rep for Hutchins exclusively told Page Six on Thursday, “Sophia chatted with Caitlyn about Sophia’s desire to do the show. Caitlyn supported her desire and encouraged her. Sophia reached out to her agent to see if it was a possibility and left it in the agent’s hands! That was the extent of their knowledge of talks. It’s something Sophia definitely wants to do.” Jenner’s rep did not immediately return our request for comment."
Teddi Mellencamp: My edit ‘should have been the writing on the wall’ for firing (Page Six) "Teddi Mellencamp knew her “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” exit was a long time coming. On the latest episode of her podcast, “Teddi Tea Pod With Teddi Mellencamp,” the former reality star, 39, revealed she found out she was no longer a “Housewife” from her friends before she heard it from the network, but had a feeling her termination was imminent. “The craziest part about it was, I think it was last Monday, I woke up, I was on the Peloton and my girlfriends started texting me. My non-television show girlfriends and they’re like, ‘Hey, is everything cool?'” she began. “And I’m like, ‘Why?’ And they’re like, ‘It’s all over the Daily Mail that you’re no longer a ‘Housewife.’ And I was like, ‘Oh come on!'” Mellencamp then read the article — posted earlier this month — and sent a message to her team to ask if it was true. She had been a “Housewife” for three seasons. “Maybe, not three hours later, I get the phone call and they’re like, ‘Hey.’ And I’m like, ‘What?’ And they’re like, ‘So, um, your contract is not getting renewed as a ‘Housewife,'” she continued, laughing, “And I’m like, ‘You are telling me that it’s released to the Daily Mail before me!'” The mom-of-three admitted she was blindsided by the decision and heartbroken to learn she wouldn’t be returning for another season. Looking back on the past season, she realized she should have seen that she was being phased out. “I think for the last couple of months, I had been preparing myself,” she said. “Because we had like a really busy year last year with our family. Like, I got pregnant naturally for the first time. I was able to tell the kids. I filmed so many amazing things that were never shown on the show … it should have been the writing on the wall.” “All the things that make me a likable, redeeming human being were not shown on the season,” she said with a laugh. Her son Cruz, 6, took the news harder than she did. “The only person that was really pissed was my son Cruz,” she shared. “[He was like] ‘Mom, what did you do? I wanted to be famous, now what?'” For now, she’s still in touch with Kyle Richards, who she considers one of her best friends, Erika Girardi and Lisa Rinna via a group text. Surprisingly, she also reached out to Dorit Kemsley. “We’ve had extreme highs and lows on the show, but [I told her], ‘I wanted to let you know that I just want to wish you the best,'” Mellencamp said. “Dorit has a good heart.” It is unclear who will replace Mellencamp when “RHOBH” returns."

Tamra Judge- Brandi Glanville Is Lying & Andy Cohen Knows It (Celeb Magazine exclusive) "Recently, Andy Cohen appeared on Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Brandi Glanville’s Podcast, Brandi Glanville: Unfiltered. On the Podcast, the pair talked about quite a few topics- and, for some reason, Real Housewives of Orange County alum Tamra Judge was brought up. On the episode of the Podcast, Glanville brought up Judge along with Real Housewives of Orange County alum Vicki Gunvalson. “I felt like [Vicki and Tamra] told their entire stories and they both said that [you are] an ageist,” Glanville explicitly told Cohen. Glanville doubled down on her claim, adding that “They said you were going against them because they got too old.” The claim that Glanville was referring to was on a Podcast interview that Judge had done back in June on the Behind The Velvet Rope Podcast. On that episode, Judge specifically stated that Bravo wanted “younger Housewives,” referring to the likes of Real Housewives of New York City newcomer Leah McSweeney. At no point during this conversation did Judge say that Bravo- or Cohen- were ageists or that she and Gunvalson had been let go due to their age. Celeb exclusively talked to Judge about the situation that was going on. “I DID NOT say Andy fired me due to my age,” Judge exclusively told CELEB. “That is just ridiculous since Shannon [Beador] is older than me and still employed.” Judge then went in on Glanville, noting that “This is Just another one of Brandi’s ignorant attacks. Last year on her podcast she said that I ‘don’t see my granddaughter’ and I have a mental condition.’ Both of those statements are NOT true, either! “I refuse to sit back while this woman continues to spread lies, lies, [and more] lies,” Judge added. Judge then responded to Glanville’s claims that Judge had “told her entire story,” dishing to CELEB that “As far as my story being played out? I wasn’t filming a story, I was sharing my life. I gave a lot to Bravo and the viewers in the past 12 years and am thankful for my time on The Real Housewives of Orange County. However, my time was up! I never expected to be on the show as long as I was. I was able to connect with a lot of amazing people and start two businesses- www.venacbd.comwww.cutfitoc.com and I look forward to my future.” “Maybe if Brandi stopped ‘telling stories’ shed get the diamond she so desperately wants,” Judge stated. As far as Cohen being upset, Judge assured Celeb that is not the case, as she wrapped with stating that “I texted with Andy yesterday to clear this up and he knows I never said that.”

2020.09.29 17:10 mellamandiabloA Perspective on Race & Effects of the Word "Ghetto"
I understand Reddit has not been the space to have these conversations but this is a subreddit that discusses shows with Black women on a network with a history of racist undertones, overt racist statements and quite frankly, a washing of hands of situations they’ve put on screen knowing how charged they are without properly addressing them and trying to have Andy Cohen of all people navigate them in the reunions. Please read u/wowelephants beautiful post in solidarity as a POC about the struggles that Black women face re: acceptable versions of Black to be (and the stereotype diliemma) on Potomac. There was another post I read in passing denouncing Wendy’s Nigerian pride by way of calling out the chasm between Black Americans and Africans. The lack of nuance in that post was disgusting to even process. Some of the comments I saw in the last two days after the Potomac fight was troubling to my core both as a Black woman and as a human in general. Comments steeped in confident ignorance by some people who were very candid about their racial identity (non-Black). I hope those individuals read this too. I am a first-generation Ethiopian in American. I identify as Black American. This country prioritized and built the social construct of race so I am (proudly) Black. The chasm between Black Americans and Africans, I believe (and this can be anecdotally), is shrinking mostly because of a stronger sense of solidarity between the two groups. For instance, for people from my country, if you came to America in the 70’s and early 80’s, they tend to have a stronger bond with the Black Americans, PRE-CRACK EPIDEMIC. Black folks were flourishing and the sense of community was strong. This is before the introduction of crack into Black neighborhoods ravished a generation of people. If you came in the late 80’s and 90’s during the time of the crack epidemic, Regan’s “welfare queen”, the crime bill, etc., you came to America at the peak of its blitz on Black folks here. Essentially, Africans’ introduction to Black folks in this country and their regards towards them depended on when they came during a very specific time. My parents were one of those African folks who previously didn’t call themselves Black. They didn't want to be grouped in. But solidarity if found in common struggle so that perception sure did change. To conclude here, Wendy identifies strongly also as a Black woman but like so many of us first generation folks, we hold privilege in knowing where we are from and being able to have a strong connection with our culture in Africa. Now, to discuss hood vs ghetto and a history of internalized racism on this show. I have mentioned this several times in the comments so I may be coming off as a broken record. But I will say it here again…hood and ghetto are NOT the same thing. The word “ghetto” has always been racially/ethnically charged so let's not continue to believe it was just areas for poor people. Ghetto was originally described as poor Jewish neighborhood in Venice, Italy actually called the Ghetto. When Jewish folks were emancipated in Italy, the ghettos were disbanded but that term was carried over into America to describe areas where Jewish people lived in dense neighborhoods in Manhattan. There was a strong resurgence of the word during WWII under Hitler in Europe. That word had discriminatory beginnings. It’s not as simple as saying it’s just a poor area In America, that term was used to describe impoverished Black people in America. It was used during the time when tools like covenants, red lining and any other housing discrimination effort were being deployed against Black folks. The term was used so loosely to describe Black areas on a national scale, even in legal proceedings. The word then morphed into something to describe a wide swath of black people. If a black person is anything other than the American societal standard steeped in racism, they are considered “ghetto”. If you are loud, if you are aggressive, etc., you are ghetto. Doesn’t matter if you grew up in the “ghetto” (which isn’t even reason enough to label a human that), you are ghetto. Hood is a whole different term. It is a word to describe a urban area in a large city but also holds up the culture, vibe, people of that area. It’s a reclamation of the term. Its a term for celebration. People proudly describe themselves as hood. It’s a word that people of similar upbringings use to describe a shared experience. If you’re from Oakland or you from Brooklyn, the culture is different but the experience is similar. It’s a point of pride. Despite the situation a person was brought up in, they are able to navigate through this word but also keep all that they've learned growing up in the hood. It’s street smarts. It’s toughness and tenacity. It’s a certain swag and vibe. It’s the ability to shift on a dime and handle shit like shit gets handled in our neighborhood. For many, no matter where they go, they still got hood in them. It’s a culture. There’s a reason Megan thee Stallion and Cardi B specifically call themselves hood. Now, to try and say the two are the same is short-sided and dangerous. People are now trying to attach the same racially charged intent behind “hood” as they did “ghetto”. Speaking AAVE does not warrant being called either of these terms. A lot of black folks use it as do most of the women on this show. AAVE is a language and has been co-opted by American culture on many occasions. The first season of this show, Sherisse and Karen used the word ghetto constantly and quite frankly, it was almost the reason why I stopped watching Potomac. It is disgusting. The production company clearly didn’t have the staff or maybe the motivation to tell these women that it is a damaging word. But Black Twitter sure as hell did and it dragged the life out of Sherisse and Karen for using it. So from the beginning, the women on this show have had a “I’m a better version of Black” attitude. There’s also a colorism and internalized racism issue on this show that feeds into the “I’m a better version” attitude that Atlanta doesn’t really have. Both things happen in varying degrees. It does not matter that Monique describes herself as hood, she never identified as ghetto but she was called that. The colorism aspect may not have been front and center in this situation, but understanding that just because Monique put her hands on Candiace isn’t the reason why she was called ghetto. Candiace was waiting to use it. These women have been in other similar situations where they weren’t called ghetto. It’s not because they didn’t physically strike someone. There’s a larger issue at play. Look at the juxtaposition of Candiace calling her and her behavior “ghetto” and Monique calling herself “hood”. It’s intentional and I think the producers were great in going back and forth between the two because of Candiace’s history. Even the Candiace is the victim in this situation, it continues to shine a light on her internalized racism. Her need to constantly mention the coloring of her white husband’s appendage as if to seek out approval for dating interracially, calling Ashley a “roach” knowing full well what the word holds, etc. Even her mother perpetuates her internalized racism as well. That whole family gives off a “Be Black but not that type of Black” attitude. Is there a “class” element to this? Possibly, there’s always ways to identify the intersectionality of these issues. You can attribute “new money” and “old money” to it as well. But in the end of the day, the women on this show do not have the capacity to discuss race in a way that I think they want or want to call out others for exploiting or the behavior in general. Wendy could provide a different perspective. People were offended that Candiace attacked Ashley with those tweets but as far as I can recall, no one brought up the disgusting, historically racist use of the word “roach.” I didn’t mean for this to be so long but I hoped to clear some things that were said or inferred the past few days. I always appreciated how people on this sub called out Bravo for it's racial and discriminatory actions. Words have meaning and historical context. Edit: Apologies! I meant to say re: ghettos that it was used in the 18th century in Italy and saw a resurgence towards Jewish groups in Europe under Hilter. But in the 18th century, is was ethnically specific. From Italy, it also made its way in the US to describe Jewish neighborhoods in Lower Manhattan.
Diana French, woman accused of stealing Kyle Richards’ ring, speaks out (Page Six) "Diana French has a bone to pick with Kyle Richards. And Diane Keaton, for that matter. French, a retired pharmacy clerk from Los Angeles, wound up an unwitting viral star when “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” star Kyle Richards saw a picture of French’s hands on Diane Keaton’s Instagram and thought she recognized a ring that had been stolen from her home in a 2018 burglary. For some reason, Keaton identified French in the picture as a psychic from Santa Monica, which may have been why Richards’ subsequent attempt to find French through a private investigator came to no avail. This week, however, a TikTok user identified French as her grandmother from her hands and attempted to clear her name, saying that the ring had been in her possession for decades while offering photographic proof. French, however, is fed up, telling “Inside Edition” during her Sept. 28 appearance that she wants an apology from Richards and Keaton. “I don’t deserve this,” she told the show. “My twin sister called and said, ‘Diana, you’re on Google.” “My mother was killed 40 years ago and my dad gave me her band,” French explained of the ring, noting that she has appraisal papers from 1980 that set the ring’s value at $2,500, along with a trove of family photos showing her wearing the item for decades. As for the nails, French said she’s always had them: “I am totally lost without them.” And while she doesn’t remember the particular date Keaton took the pic, she does remember the actress was her customer. “That picture of my hands was taken on the counter of the pharmacy,” she said. Reached by Page Six, Richards’ team had no comment; Keaton’s has yet to respond."
Real Housewives star's Coatesville mansion sells sight unseen to expats for $8.8m (stuff.co.nz) "High-end properties often take a long time to sell, and the Coatesville house owned by Real Housewives of Auckland star Michelle Blanchard and husband Dave is no exception. After first being listed in September 2016 with a different agency, the 2.66ha property with its huge modern mansion has finally been sold by New Zealand Sotheby’s International Realty for $8,800,000 – to an expat family that has bought it sight unseen. The property has a CV of $6.05 million, and four years ago, Dave Blanchard told NZ House & Garden the couple had spent “well over $7 million on it”, carrying out an enormous renovation, which tripled the size of the house to 1000 square metres."

2020.09.26 17:51 readingrachelxBrandi Glanville Unfiltered Podcast Summary – Sept. 24, 2020 episode with Andy Cohen
Brandi says she was nervous for the interview and studied up on Andy and his career beforehand in preparation
Brandi welcomes “Andy fucking Cohen” and Andy greets “Brandi fucking Glanville.” Brandi says she never hears Andy cuss. Andy says he cusses on his radio show. Brandi says she doesn’t listen to that, because she’s never been invited to be a guest. Andy says he’ll change that.
It’s Andy’s first time on Brandi’s podcast. He congratulates her on her success with her podcast. Andy is Brandi’s 300th guest.
Brandi says she kind of wants to quit her podcast because “every fucking person” has a podcast now. Andy says LVP has one now and Brandi starts laughing. Brandi “I’m like, oh, she stooped to my level, finally!” Andy laughs. Brandi says she wishes she could have been a fly on the wall for the LVP/Camille podcast to hear the parts they cut.
They shoot the shit about COVID and Andy contracting it and recovering. I’m not gonna transcribe the shooting the shit type parts because who cares lol.
Brandi asks Andy about adding to his family. Andy says he’s an “old guy,” and whatever he does, it would be for Ben, he would like Ben to have a sibling so that when Andy isn’t around anymore, Ben has family. Andy’s life is already very unconventional, and he wants to give Ben every opportunity to succeed and flourish, and giving him a sibling would do that. Re: gender, Andy says he would “leave it up to Jesus” – Brandi replies, “woo, Jews for Jesus over here!”
Brandi asks Andy about the rumours that Teddi is not coming back to the show. Andy says they don’t formally announce until they have to, and he doesn’t HAVE to at this point, so he won’t. (Non-answer)
Brandi has a bunch of questions people sent her for Andy on Twitter, but she’s “not going to ask all of them because some of them are shady as fuck.” Brandi calls Twitter a “breeding ground for hate.” Andy agrees.
Brandi asks Andy if he’s single – yes, he is. Brandi says she’s “single-ish,” – there is somebody, but he doesn’t live in California, and he’s Mormon. Brandi asks Andy “how he’s dealing without dick during the quarantine?” Andy says people don’t want to be without dick (true), but it is what it is, Andy says he’s been tested for COVID and antibodies so many times that there have been periods where he knew his status for sure and that “freed him up a little bit.” Andy says it’s not fun dating right now, there’s none of that happening, and it’s not a time to be meeting new people. “It’s a weird time.”
Brandi asks Andy about online dating. Andy is on Tinder and “all the apps.” So is Brandi (except neither of them are on Raya). Raya turned Brandi down LMAO. Andy didn’t even try to get in.
Brandi says straight guys (“except for Jerry O’ Connell, and that’s a question mark” – oh, Brandi, come on now!) don’t really watch Bravo unless they’re married and thinks that works in her favour when dating (straight guys are less likely to know who she is). Andy says he would have a harder time trusting a guy who is a huge Bravo fan because he would question their intentions. His last boyfriend watched some housewives, but “he wasn’t living for it.”
Brandi says she’s friends with a lot of gay men and knows some of them are only friends with her because they love housewives and “when they get in fights she calls them ‘housewives whores’ – they don’t like it.” Andy says he doesn’t really have trust issues when it comes to people’s motivations in wanting to date him. Brandi says he’s lucky about that.
Brandi asks if Andy knew Bethenny was going to leave “because it seems like you guys are really close friends.” Andy had a sense that the deal wasn’t going to work out but B and Andy had agreed “not to talk about her deal that year” because in the past they had an annual fight about her contract/negotiations, and Andy doesn’t like fighting, and he especially hates fighting with Bethenny, who is “not fun to fight with.” (I’ll say). Andy says he was ultimately surprised by the timing and that the deal fell through right before production started, but he wasn’t totally surprised that she left. He was bummed, he thinks the show is great when she’s on it, but he was just grateful she came back for a second round.
Brandi says it’s “time for B to go and have her happily ever after.”
Brandi brings up Dorinda’s departure and I get instantly weepy because I am an unstable bitch when it comes to Dorinda lol. Brandi says she doesn’t know Dorinda that well but she texted her about a week after D got fired and Dorinda said “Brandi, you’re the first housewives person that has texted me since I left the show.” Brandi said that surprised her and asked Andy if he thinks that housewives friends forget about once you’re off the show. Andy says he doesn’t know, he thinks it depends on the person. Andy says once you’re on housewives it’s like being in the mob, people will ask you about it forever, you can never get out. Brandi agrees.
Brandi says she’s done 13 other reality shows since housewives and housewives is really the only one she gets asked about other than Big Brother sometimes. “Once a housewife, always a housewife.”
Brandi says she was watching Dorinda and kind of saw herself in a D in a way, Brandi was also in a downward spiral on housewives “except without the money,” getting drunk all the time, she wasn’t happy, she was depressed, and she was doing the same thing over and over again on the show, and she saw that happening with D.
Brandi loves NY hws and tells Andy that BH needs a touch of the “off the rails” quality NY has, she says the BH ladies are “too on the rails.”
Brandi says when she got fired it was a blessing she needed at that time even though she couldn’t see it then, and she thinks this will also be a blessing for Dorinda. “Everyone loves Dorinda, but we all want to see Dorinda happy.” Brandi felt like she was watching herself when she watched Dorinda.
Andy talked to Dorinda about it a lot and says D was very philosophical about it and he thinks this will be positive for her and lead to good things. Brandi says Dorinda needs a mental health break.
Brandi brings up Tamra and Vicki’s firings to Andy and says she “felt like they had told their entire stories.” Brandi tells Andy that Tamra and Vicki both said he was ageist. Andy says he didn’t know, he seems surprised. Andy says, “that’s weird, but Ramona is older than Vicki.” Brandi says Andy is “the only person who hires middle aged women in this entire town.” Andy says he “doesn’t care for that’ (the accusations of ageism). Andy says Vicki and Tamra are amazing and Vicki to this day makes him absolutely laugh. They just felt like the show needed “some new air, they needed to kinda air it out and see where it went.” “Unfortunately, we were in the middle of a great, great season when COVID hit, so we had to shut down production and then resume production in the middle of this mess.” Andy describes OC as the “Knott’s Landing of the franchises.” He says it’s “real life drama, with real people, they’re women dealing with some real serious stuff in their lives, and when the season starts, there’s something that grounds it to the core of what Orange County always was about.” When Andy watched the new season he said it felt like authentic OC to him. Even though Vicki and Tamra will always represent OC and he hopes they will some day be back in some capacity, “the show is still the show, and I was very happy about that, but it needed to go in new directions.”
As Andy told Vicki, she had an unprecedented run. “It’s not a given that anyone is going to stay on television, and it’s not a given for me either, I’m full of gratitude every time Bravo picks up the contract for WWHL, and when they don’t, I will understand.” Andy says “it’s not a right to be on television, it’s a gift.”
Brandi says Tamra and Vicki are iconic but it gets to a point where it’s the same thing over and over again. Brandi says she’s loving the new girls and them sharing EVERYTHING that they’re going through. (sigh)
Brandi asks Andy if he thinks that, when you sign up for reality tv, especially housewives, should you be allowed to have something that isn’t aired on the show, like something you hold back? Andy says he thinks that if there are skeletons in your closet, it’s really difficult to go on reality tv. Cites Joe and Tre, Brandi and Adrienne Maloof.
Brandi says family drama is hard for her to watch and she had to stop watching Jersey for awhile when it got really bad. Even with Kim and Kyle, being on the show with them together was hard for her. Brandi says she loves and wanted to protect Kim but she also likes Kyle, and it was hard to navigate, she “doesn’t want anyone thrown under the bus on national television” (LMAO), But Brandi says it’s harder than it looks to be on housewives, and you just can’t have secrets.
Brandi brings up Denise and says she’s “trying to move past that.” She says Denise will be missed on hws. Andy says he’ll miss her too and he really liked her on the show. He has nothing else to say. He seems – unenthused lol.
Re: Denise, Brandi says when anyone tries to self-produce it becomes hard to watch. “Just fucking say it, tell everyone to fuck off and then it will be fine.” (I wholeheartedly agree lol).
Brandi asks Andy if he makes up names of the people asking the questions at the reunion (I’ve always wanted to know this!) Andy says no, he doesn’t!
Brandi asks Andy if he has a physical type when it comes to men. Andy says “he’s kinda like the UN, he really doesn’t.” He likes “strong, in shape, handsome,” but he’s “very open.”
Brandi is friends with someone Andy used to date so Andy feels like Brandi “knows stuff about his sex life” (a guy named Marco).
Twitter question: “On Howard Stern, you said Brandi put herself on an island away from the ladies and that’s why she wasn’t asked back. What is the excuse now?” Andy doesn’t have an answer. “You’re not on an island, but you’re not exactly friends with any of the women.” Brandi: “I’m friends with Teddi and Kyle. I text Kyle a lot. I’m very close with Kim.” Andy: “I will say this, I’ll say you’re as close to being back as you’ve been in a long time.” Brandi: “Yes, that is true.”
Twitter question: “Why do some of the women on Beverly Hills get away with doing the bare minimum while a housewife from any other franchise would get fired for doing the same?” Andy: “Welllll, I mean, I think that each of the cities has their own personality and vibe, and Beverly Hills has their own personality and vibe, and of all of the shows Beverly Hills is the most of a ‘lifestyle show’ so to speak, I just think you can’t measure what’s happening in one city against another because they’re just different animals.”
Brandi says in NY for example they’re not “dogs with bones” where everyone holds onto one thing and goes after one person, “they all go after each other.” Andy says “typically things in Beverly Hills get discussed far more than on the East coast. Same with Orange County actually, too.”
Brandi says when she joined BH she was seen as trashy for swearing but now everyone on BH is telling each other to fuck off. She thinks the show has evolved a bit, but they’re in general a more conservative show compared to say New York or Atlanta which are Brandi’s two favourites.
Twitter question: “Who’s really the richest housewife, and who is probably the poorest?” Brandi says it’s either “Kim or I for the poorest.” (I thought Kim’s daughter married into the family of a gazillionaire?) Andy laughs. Andy hems and haws over who’s the richest. Brandi: “Even ex-housewives, because I always think about Vandercunt.” (Not a typo). Andy says Adrienne always seemed like she has a lot of money, he thinks Sutton has a lot of money. Brandi says she thinks Sutton is just pretending to be rich, she says she knows a lot about Sutton and Sutton “pretends to have more than she has.” Andy says the estimates on celebritynetworth.com are bullshit. Brandi confirms this, says her own net worth on that site is wildly overestimated.
Brandi says she thinks Kandi might be the richest hw. Andy agrees, Kandi is rich. Andy also thinks Mauricio makes a LOT of money. Brandi agrees. Brandi says Kyle is now living in Encino, she’s “basically their neighbor,” and Encino is “no longer the Bel-Air of Beverly Hills.” Brandi says she is being shady.
Brandi brings up Jeff Lewis, “the shadiest bitch of all time.” Brandi says Andy and Jeff were best friends, Andy says that is NOT true. I don’t give a shit about Jeff Lewis so I’m not bothering with this part. Basically he and Andy are still friendly even though Jeff read his private texts on air. Brandi talks a little bit about the wine throw gone wrong on WWHL. She hates Jeff. She shades Jeff’s plastic surgery.
Brandi brings up a time when she was on WWHL to promote her new book, the footage never made air, and the doorbell rang and “in came Carole Radziwill,” and then Carole started promoting Widow’s Guide and “it became all about her.” Brandi asks Andy if he was being intentionally shady/trying to sabotage her book promotion. Andy says he doesn’t remember. He thinks he had probably told Carole he would help her promote her book because of the ghost-writing stuff. He wasn’t trying to mess with Brandi’s book promotion, it was just a poorly-timed thing. Brandi seems to accept that.
Brandi asks about Andy’s relationship with Carole who she says “seems to have a great amount of disdain for Andy.” Andy agrees, thinks Carole is angry both towards the show in general and at him, thinks she felt like he was “up Bethenny’s ass” (lol). “It didn’t end in the way I hoped it would have.” Andy and Carole were in each other’s social circle for years, they did have a genuine fondness for each other at one time.
Brandi says she’s been at events with Carole a few times and thought she seemed “aggressively angry at Andy.” Andy kind of dodges this. Andy says he thinks Carole has been fair in characterizing the nature of their friendship, she didn’t overstate their closeness.
Brandi asks Andy about his new book with David Quinn. Andy says he can’t talk about that.
Brandi does a marry fuck kill on Andy: Kelly Ripa, Sarah Jessica Parker, and Anderson Cooper. Andy would kill Anderson, marry Kelly so he get could Mark in the bargain, and have sex with SJ.
Brandi asks Andy if he and WWHL feel snubbed by the Emmys. Andy says it doesn’t surprise him, he is up against real skilled comedians in that category who are producing big-ticket, high levels show, he doesn’t really feel snubbed. He wishes the housewives would get recognized. There are seasons where he thought New York housewives should have received some accolades or recognition.
Another marry fuck kill: Kathy Griffin, Danielle Staub, or Jeff Lewis. Andy would fuck Jeff, marry Danielle, and kill Kathy. Andy rethinks it – he would fuck Danielle and marry Jeff, “because marriage is for life.”
Brandi asks Andy if he really thinks Danielle was engaged 19 times. Andy doesn’t answer. Andy says he’s never been engaged. Andy says if he falls in love and meets the right guy he’s open to it. His parents would like him to get married.
Brandi asks Andy who his favourite all time housewife is. Andy won’t answer. Brandi loves Ramona and Porsha.
Brandi gives her son Mason the mic. Mason asks if Andy is “going to give his mom a second change to change her image now that he and his brother are allowed to be on the show.” Andy asks if their Dad has given permission for them to be on air, and Mason says yes, he thinks so. Andy says, “Really?! Well, that’s a discussion, Mason.” Andy asks why Mason wants his mom on the show. Mason “Well, you kind of milked her for everything this season to get some views and stuff, and she hasn’t gotten close to as much as the real housewives.” Andy: “you would like your mother to be compensated what she feels she deserves, right?” Mason: “Yes.” Andy: “You’re awesome.” Mason: “I mean, she’s the best woman I’ve ever met.” Andy: “Aw Mason, you’re the best, you make really good points.” Andy says he’ll keep Mason’s points in mind.
Mason gives Brandi back the mic. Andy says he hopes his son grows up to defend and fight for him like that, “it was very moving.” (It was not, it was weird and it made me feel uncomfortable lol).
Brandi thanks Andy for coming on the podcast. Andy says with all she’s done for the hw shows it’s the least he can do. He loved watching Brandi on Big Brother. Brandi sends love to Andy’s parents and baby Ben. She thanks Andy for everything he’s done for her and apologizes for the times she said fuck off to him except for the time he compared her to a dog. Wishes him a beautiful day. The end!

The Potomac Housewives Will Reveal Everything You Didn't See on TV in the Season 5 After Show (bravotv.com) "The RHOP cast will be dishing on all of the Season 5 drama in the return of The Real Housewives of Potomac After Show, which kicks off on Sunday, October 4 following the latest episode. Gizelle Bryant, Ashley Darby, Candiace Dillard Bassett, Robyn Dixon, Karen Huger, Wendy Osefo, and Monique Samuels will take you inside this season's biggest moments, revealing behind-the-scenes secrets and sharing major updates on their lives since the season wrapped. Kemar Bassaragh, executive producer of RHOP, and Josh Brown, Vice President, Current Production at Bravo, will also be on hand to provide an in-depth look at the filming of this season like fans have never seen before. You can find new installments of The Real Housewives of Potomac After Show on BravoTV.com and YouTube immediately after the latest episode of RHOP."
RHOP Producer Reveals Why One Housewife Interview Came to an Abrupt End (Bravo Insider) "Executive producer of The Real Housewives of Potomac Kemar Bassaragh is one of the people responsible for bringing us those iconic interview moments, sitting down with the ladies to ask all those hard-hitting questions throughout the season. One of the things Bassaragh notes is that it's important to keep the ladies' spirits up during what can be very long interview sessions. "So, just get them comfortable with their favorite snacks, favorite drinks," Bassaragh explained. "And you can talk to them for hours." Champagne is the most popular drink among the Potomac Housewives, according to Bassaragh, although he once recalled a time when one of the ladies may have had a few too many sips during their in-depth conversation, resulting in a change of plans for production." Argh then the summary cuts off and you have to watch the dumb Bravo Insider video to find out who had "too many sips" lol. To add insult to injury, even though I am a subscribed "Bravo Insider," the video is geo-blocked for me.
Bethenny Frankel open to 'RHONY' return if it were 'different show' (UPI) "On WWHL, Frankel said she might be tempted to return for the right price. "I don't know. If you get my gate code and there's a Brinks truck full of a lot of cash. It's all about the Benjamins, baby," she said. "I have a different career now as a result of not being on. Just different opportunities do come because of it," the star said. "It would have to be a different show. I have had ideas. It would have to be... clean the deck, and it would be a different show," she added."
Former ‘RHONY’ cast member Barbara Kavovit wants to run for mayor of NYC (Page Six) "Barbara Kavovit could be the next reality star-turned-politician. The former “Real Housewives of New York” cast member, 54, is “strongly considering” running for mayor of New York City, she exclusively told Page Six. The Evergreen Construction CEO already has a campaign manager helping her behind-the-scenes and is ready to replace Mayor Bill de Blasio come next year. “Well, I have to say, if Donald Trump could be President of the United States, I can be Mayor of New York City,” she told us. “You know, I’m a builder. I know how to build. I know how to rebuild.” Currently, Kavovit’s company is demolishing and rebuilding Harvey Weinstein’s former New York City offices. Kavovit has not had any political aspirations prior to her decision to pursue the campaign as a “tough Democrat,” but after she began to feel “unsafe on the street,” she decided she wanted to make a difference. “Number one is rebuild a safer and more inclusive New York City,” she said of the platform she wants to run on. “So I feel like the city is not a safe place. So if it’s not safe, people don’t want to come to New York City. People don’t want to stay in New York City.” She continued, “I think housing is not being addressed, for instance, for housing, one of the first things I would do is build more affordable housing. And with that, I wouldn’t only build more affordable housing, but I would create an ownership program so that whoever is in the housing, they have a responsibility to where they live.” Kavovit’s stance on crime is tougher, as she told us: “If you are stealing granny’s pocketbook, you’re going to jail. If there’s not enough jails, I’m going to build another jail.” “I’m a Democrat, but I’m a tough Democrat,” she pronounced. “I’m not going to stand for crime. I am going to help businesses. I am going to promote a safer New York City, very structured, so people feel comfortable about being here, so they want to have their business here. So they want to go on the subway and go to work.” “It’s the toughest city in the world, but the person that’s running it is not tough,” she concluded. “We need a tough advocate, a tough mayor, a tough infrastructure, tough people that are surrounding the mayor. And he doesn’t have that. And we need that.” And of course, Kavovit is not a stranger to shattering glass ceilings in male-dominated fields. Of the political world, she affirmed, “They need a woman in office!” The New York City mayoral election will be held in November 2021. De Blasio is unable to run again due to term limits."
This is just a random tidbit I saw somewhere - Kelly Dodd and Cynthia Bailey have the same wedding date - Oct. 10, 2020.

RHOC star Kelly Dodd’s fall wedding will NOT be filmed for the show as season has already wrapped (The Sun UK Exclusive) "Kelly Dodd's upcoming wedding to fiance Rick Leventhal won't be filmed for Real Housewives of Orange County. Sources close to production told The Sun that "it won’t be filmed for the show at all." "The season has long wrapped, they're not going to fit it in," the insider added, admitting that there are also restrictions on Rick due to his contract with Fox News that limit his appearances.
Lisa Rinna officially launching Rinna Beauty lipstick line (Page Six) "The “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” star, 57, first teased an upcoming beauty line at November’s BravoCon, and now fans can get their hands on a Rinna Beauty line of lipsticks and glosses on September 28. Rinna Beauty will launch with three $45 lip kits that include a lipstick, a liner and a gloss in shades with cheeky names like Birthday Suit, Legends Only and No Apologies — but the actress has big plans for expansion. “Of course I want to go into everything down the line. Rinna Beauty is going to be a lifestyle brand,” she told Allure. “But we started with three lip kits — in nude, nude-pink and nude-coral, because that is what I wear.” Of course, Lisa name-checks her model daughters Delilah and Amelia as well as mom Lois — who she says never leaves the house without lipstick — as inspirations for the line, as well as her co-stars Erika Girardi, Dorit Kemsley and Kyle Richards. “I’ve always joked about being the lip pioneer. I’ve always wanted to do something with these lips,” she said. “I finally feel like we’re getting to do it and have fun and have a sense of humor, and really bring quality items that I just absolutely love, that my heart and soul are in and part of.”
Candiace Dillard: Monique Samuels 'tried at every turn' to start fight (UPI/WWHL) "When asked on WWHL if she could have done anything differently to prevent the confrontation, Dillard said she was not to blame for the fight. "I could say that I could have done what I did in the previous week's episode, which is walk alway, but Monique, as you all have seen in the compounding episodes, she tried at every turn to start a fight, to start an argument, to start drama," Dillard said. "She was waiting for an opportunity, if you ask me, to have her day, and have her moment, and make up for lost time," she added. "Let's go back to the moment when she threatened to drag me eight months pregnant when I was having a conversation with someone that was not her, that she walked into, and escalated that conversation and that situation, and then threatened to hit me in the face with a glass bottle," Dillard recalled. "So, the short answer is no. I don't believe that me quoting a violent pregnant person deserves or warrants me being violently attacked," she said. On WWHL, Dillard also said Samuels' new song "Drag Queens" is "sad" and "disgusting." Some fans believe the song's title is a reference to Samuels and Dillard's previous fight. "I think that it's sad and it's disgusting that she would create a song to brag about violence," Dillard said. "And then I think it's also sick that she would try to spin it and make it about, 'Oh, I was writing the song about standing up to bullies,' when in actuality, if you review the tape, she was the bully the entire season thus far. I did not bully her."
RHOBH Season 11 Cast Confirmed (Celeb Magazine exclusive). Take this with a grain of of salt because I don't know what "Celeb Magazine" is but they are reporting that the following wives will return: Kyle, Sutton, Rinna, Garcelle, Erika, Dorit, and there is still a potential of Kathy Hilton as friend-of.
Bethenny Frankel on Her New Podcast and Friendship With Dorinda Medley After 'RHONY' Exit (ET Online exclusive) Re: Dorinda: "We have gotten really much closer and it is better that we got closer not being on the show, because it means that it is not because of the show," she says. "And many friends are forged because of the show and then you get off and you are not interested in being friends with those people, so she and I, we are very good at giving advice to each other, life advice. I think she is a great person. I am working on a project with her. You know, I have a production company and I think she would be great for a certain project and it is amazing," she shares. "I think it is the best thing that ever happened to her that she was let go, because she is sort of blossoming and coming alive. ... She would have left but she did not realize it was time for her to leave, so for this time, it was time for her to leave and she did, and she is really happy and she is feeling herself right now, which is great." As for Frankel, she has plenty going on, including her new podcast, Just B With Bethenny Frankel. The podcast focuses on being a self-made mogul in business, and features interviews with the likes of Maria Shriver, entrepreneur Mark Cuban and UFC president Dana White. "It's not about gossip, it's not about who someone's dating or, you know, anything nonsense," she says. "It's all about, like, explaining how people got to where they are. These people are all game changers, they are all visionaries, you know, geniuses, billionaires and that's the bar, you know? I really only have people on who have really made a mark in this world and they are giving it all, they are really giving me everything, so there's so much that people aren't getting anywhere else." Frankel says one common theme she's seen through interviewing extremely successful people on her podcast is their incredible work ethic, and that they're willing to do the "old school hard work." She also shared with ET what she's learned from some of her guests, including Real Housewives executive producer Andy Cohen. "I did not realize how decisive he is until we talked in our podcast," she shares. "He's sort of chilling and hanging out and that was something like, 'Oh wow, me too.' And I didn’t realize that Andy Cohen had to have a job in high school, like, had to have a job, and I'm like, 'Oh wow, OK.' And Mark Cuban said to me ... another person who's a mentor to me said, 'People who are unhappy are unhappier when they make money. People who are happy are happier when they make money.' So, think about this treasure of just data and information about life and the type of person who is successful that I'm getting. Dana White, who is the head of the UFC, said there is no 'no,' and I'm the same. He's like, 'There is no 'no.' Don’t tell me.' I said, 'My motto is a place of yes.' I have something in common with all these people and they have something in common with each other, so it's really cool."

2020.08.30 19:20 totallykyTLDL - Absolutely Danielle Podcast "The Last to Know" Episode
I saw a few tweets/posts about Danielle Staub's latest podcast episode where she goes after Andy Cohen (who she says she used to call "Daddy"). Couldn't find any TLDR, so I decided to take one for the team and do a recap. Episode is linked here if you want to listen for whatever reason. - Near the end she says “I’m calling him out for the right reasons. I’m not using him to get you to listen. au contraire”, but I think it should be noted at the top. - She had a “wall of fame” (a la Kardashians) and Andy saw photos of Kelly Ripa. Andy was impressed by her roster of celeb friends - notes he never thanked her for introducing them - A 13 second clip of Christine and jillian playing frisbee apparently had Andy's phone blowing up with offers from modelling agencies. Notes that Christine was the first model contracted of the franchise - because Christine wanted her career to be hers, not Bravos/on TV - they were punished and Danielle was edited to look crazy (the luncheon for Christine, that Christine wasn't at) - All the publishing houses wanted her memoir “The Naked Truth” - she is the first of the franchise to get a book deal, so Bravo PR didn't know how to properly support (Andy didn’t even have a book, she notes). In S02 she filmed her writing the book - if Bravo didn’t make 15% off the commission of the book, they won’t air it. Since Danielle wouldn’t … they had Teresa write a book. Claims Tre doesn’t cook, Joe apparently said she doesn’t cook either lol. Claims no one was offering Tre a book, so she was happy to sign over the % to Bravo because they are the reason she even had it.. - Bravo had Tre release her book the day before/same day as Danielle (both as the season 2 finale episode aired) and apparently this buried Danielle and hurt her sales. - On Tre: “how would I know she would get a book deal, when she can’t form a sentence?” - Shocked Andy lied about her being fired - when he announced this it cost her “every contract” she had signed. Biggest one was: Danielle was the first and only HW to be approached for Celeb Apprentice (even before Nene). - Danielle said “I'm not coming back for season 3” and apparently cast, crew, everyone and their mothers knew this. However, she claims Andy said Danielle won't be able to film Celeb Apprentice, because she was required to film season 3. “conflict of interest, I suggest you use Nene Leakes because Danielle will be filming RHONJ S03” - She thinks Andy shut Celeb Apprentice down on her because it would show her in a positive light, not the RHONJ edit: “i would have had a banging career” - After this, Andy ghosted her. Didn’t go public because she didn’t want to burn the bridge and be able to come back one day. - “Bravo asked me back every season and I said no” - “Offered me a substantial amount of money to come to the S03 reunion” - Andy kept asking her to come back to WWHL - she notes she's the “first and only guest on his opening episode of WWHL” and “I launched that show for him - with him” - Would only go on WWHL if she was paid, or if she could ask him a question but he can’t know what it is. Negotiations went on for 3 months - she eventually was paid and she was able to ask him “why it was that you said i was fired, when I quit?” note: I couldn't find this for the life of me, did they air this? - Danielle dislikes The Ham Game (Manzo's) - "While I’m busy marching pride parades, he’s promoting - as a gay man - people who hate on gays” which I assume is a dig at the Manzo’s and Joe G, but like… never forget your friend Danny… - When talking about LGBTQIA+ community, says “my community” - confirms she is bisexual in 2020. - "Because I really don't think i hate him. i know, I hate everything he’s done to me." - “The Andy I know would hit up Grindr and go on 3-4 grindr dates an evening” - claims from reputable sources she knows. - "The drugs, the partying... I can accuse him all I want. I'm not talking about marijuana." She is upset she was accused of being a drug addict (did people accuse her of this???? i know she called Ashlee a coke whore on the show lololol) when in fact he’s the one doing those? Vague. Ok that's the bulk of it - Hope you enjoyed! 🧡 xoxo - therealhousewivesorders

Brandi Glanville Denies Altering Texts with Denise Richards After RHOBH Finale: 'C'mon Denise' (people.com) "On Friday's episode of the Brandi Glanville Unfiltered podcast, Glanville discussed this week's Real Housewives of Beverly Hills season 10 finale, which saw Richards suggest that Glanville could have used an app to revise their texts. "It seems that all of the ladies really believe you," said Glanville's producer, Ryan Tillotson. "Well, because I'm not lying," replied Glanville, 49. "Because I'm telling the truth, and they've all seen my phone." "[Denise], she said that there's an app," Glanville continued with a laugh. "You know me, I can barely use — my friend Michael was like, 'I'm gonna have to go and defend you. You can barely even use your iPhone.'" "I honestly wanted to go to Rome as well, because once you say it on-camera, it just sucks that I couldn't follow it up and have a conversation with her," she said. "But again, I wasn't going to say it 100 percent on camera. And then once you tell one person in the group, which I told Kim [Richards], you kind of have to. Otherwise, if it doesn't come out of your mouth, the story's going to get misconstrued. It's going to be that game of telephone where it's going to be just a giant s--- show." "So I said exactly what happened, and I wanted to follow it up seeing her and I told her that. And she even said she knew I was going to the party — that's why she didn't come, because I texted her. I said, 'I really need to talk to you,'" Glanville continued, referencing Richards' absence from Dorit Kemsley's housewarming party on Wednesday's episode." In retrospect, Glanville said she had no idea the Wild Things star would not attend Kemsley's party after they texted earlier that day. "I thought that she ... would want to confront me," Glanville said on her podcast. "She's not that person that runs away from something, in my eyes. So the fact that she's running away from this just, I don't think she can act her way out of this one." "The truth hurts sometimes," said Glanville. "I would love to have a conversation with her. Now that I've seen all the things that she's said, all of her contradictions, it's hard." When Tillotson wondered whether Richards would ever "show someone the different texts," Glanville insisted "there aren't different texts." "Maybe she has an app for that!" she said."
Teddi Mellencamp Shuts Down ‘Conspiracy Theory’ That She and Kyle Richards Filmed ‘RHOBH’ Scenes Out of Order (Us Weekly) "The 39-year-old accountability coach took to Instagram to answer fan questions during the Wednesday, August 26, finale of the Bravo series. “No, we did not film at KyleRichards18 house after Rome! Check the date and time above!” Teddi wrote alongside a photo of Kyle, 51, packing for their trip on November 19, 2019. “I took this pic when I walked in laughing at her not being packed and all her stuff on the floor.” Teddi subsequently shared footage from Rome dated November 22 through November 24. “And what do you know!!! Rome is after that,” she wrote, adding a pink heart emoji." In the comments section of her most recent Instagram post, Teddi explained that she shared the images because “enough was enough with those conspiracy theories."
Denise Richards on Filming B&B Love Scenes with Husband Aaron Phypers: 'It's Been Fun' (people.com) "During a virtual chat on The Kelly Clarkson Show on Thursday, the 49-year-old Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star told host Kelly Clarkson how the long-running soap opera is going about safely filming amid the coronavirus pandemic. Revealing that she and the rest of the cast get tested "two to three days a week," Richards added that the cast must also stay within eight feet of each other. The actors have been asked to have their "husbands or significant others" fill in for any scenes that involve human contact, including "love scenes." "So my husband has stepped in, which has been fun," she revealed of her Aaron Phypers, whom she wed back in 2018. "I'm really grateful that Aaron is able to come, and it's been fun for all of us to see everyone's husbands and wives on set."
Gizelle Bryant Says Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills “Argue Over Literally Nothing”; Says Real Housewives Of Potomac “Couldn’t Get Away With That If Our Life Depended On It” (Reality Tea/Give them Lala... with Randall Podcast) "Gizelle began, “You know, season 1, we were really kind of like lightweight and it was never really anything that was too out of bounds. However, as time goes by, you know this, stuff gets leaked to the press. So, once it’s public in regards to press, we’ve gotta talk about it. You can’t not talk about it.” She continued, “That’s kind of where the seasons have changed and the information has changed. It’s kind of like ‘I can’t sit here and act like I haven’t read the blogs because now I know all about your husband and what he’s doing. You know with Karen [Huger] and her whole tax thing, that was in the Washington Post that her husband owed the IRS like $5 million. There’s no way we can’t talk about it. I have to talk about it. I feel like, you know, we can’t get away with… I feel like Beverly Hills, you know, the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, I love those ladies. I think that they are funny and, you know, they are dripping in diamonds and pearls. I love it, but they argue over literally nothing, like zero. Whereas we couldn’t get away with that if our life depended on it. There’s no way.”
Cynthia Bailey Says Sex With Fiance Mike Hill During Quarantine Was ‘Horrible’ (Us Weekly) "Quarantine in a house with all your kids, can you imagine trying to have sex with your man?” Bailey, 53, tells Us Weekly exclusively on the Friday, August 28, episode of the “Getting Real with the Housewives” podcast. “You know how horrible that is to have like quiet, secret sex all the time?

I was constantly doing the walk of shame in our house.” The couple, who got engaged in 2019, are now spending time at Bailey’s Georgia home, otherwise known as “Lake Bailey.” “We’re here, we’re free.

D’Andra Simmons reveals ‘RHOD’ filming precautions amid coronavirus pandemic (Page Six exclusive) “Real Housewives of Dallas” star D’Andra Simmons is “very proud of Bravo” for how they’ve handled production amid the coronavirus pandemic, because they have “taken it very seriously.” The reality star revealed that the network put in place several precautionary measures to ensure the safety of all the cast, staff and crew while filming. She shared that there is a “COVID monitor” who wipes down the set before and after every scene. The “Housewives” are also expected to wear face masks at all times until they’re in the scene. Simmons, 50, said the producers have also made sure that everyone’s houses, every set, and every location they film has been sanitized. “We get COVID tests either weekly or biweekly, so especially now when we do go on our what our version of what a cast trip is, because you can’t really go that far, you do get COVID tests and so does the entire crew,” she added. “I think they’re being very responsible and very careful, because of course, we were thinking, ‘How are we going to do this in a pandemic?’ But it has worked, and knock on wood none of the cast has had any issues with COVID.” Simmons said she has taken the added precaution of quarantining at home as much as possible when she doesn’t have to leave to go film. “I literally stay in my house unless I have to go do something that is required for the show, except for a few tiny little instances because I don’t want to take any chances on contracting something and bringing it back to someone else on the cast or crew,” she said. “I take my job very seriously and I’m very grateful to have this job.” During the pandemic, however, Simmons admits she struggled with depression. “I was pretty depressed for a while,” she said. “My dad used to always say, ‘Pick yourself up by your bootstraps and keep on trucking,’ so that’s what I did.” (more in article)
Danielle Staub’s Former Publicist Says Andy Cohen & WWHL Treated Her Kind Despite Recent Claims (The Blast) "Steve Honig, who worked for Danielle from 2018-2019, tells The Blast, “WWHL (What What Happens Live) and Andy were always respectful and professional toward Danielle and constantly went above-and-beyond to accommodate her needs and give her a voice. She was always shown empathy and understanding and given a fair platform on which to express herself. I find her comments to be untrue and, quite frankly, disgraceful.”
Rachel Uchitel floated as Dorinda Medley’s replacement on ‘RHONY’ (Page Six Exclusive) "Could Rachel Uchitel replace Dorinda Medley on “The Real Housewives of New York City?” Page Six has learned that the colorful socialite — who shot to fame as one of Tiger Woods’ many mistresses — was “on the shortlist” to join the Bravo show last season, but producers plumped for Leah McSweeney instead. And now that Medley’s been axed after six seasons, we’re told there’s renewed effort to get her on the cast. An insider told us that Uchitel’s keen to land the gig, and listed her qualifications: “She’s linked to New York — growing up here, and [she was] on the cover of the New York Post as ‘New York’s tragic face.’ ” (We published Uchitel’s picture with that headline on Sept. 14, 2001. In the shot, she holds up a missing person flyer for her banker fiancé, James Andrew O’Grady, who died in the World Trade Center on 9/11. Uchitel also appeared on Page 1 of The Post a number of times during the Woods scandal.) Meanwhile, they said that — as Page Six has previously reported — she’s been linked to “Real Housewives” lothario Harry Dubin, who has famously dated cast members Sonja Morgan, Ramona Singer and Luann de Lesseps, and was married to former cast member Aviva Drescher. Plus, they said, that Uchitel (bonus gossip alert!) dated Paul “PK” Kemsley of “The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” for a year, right before he got together with wife Dorit. A Bravo rep denied that they’re considering her to replace Medley, but appeared to acknowledge that she’s previously been in talks to join the show. When we asked Uchitel if she was joining the show, she wrote to us, “News to me!” and a winking emoji."
D’Andra Simmons says ‘RHOD’ will address Brandi Redmond’s racist video ‘head on’ (Page Six) "The next season of “Real Housewives of Dallas” will address some of the cast’s racist remarks, according to star D’Andra Simmons. Simmons, 50, told Page Six of Redmond’s scandal, “We will address that first thing head on. I think that’s very important for the show. We can’t just sweep it under the rug, especially since it was such a big deal for people and they were very upset about it.” The Hard Night Good Morning CEO implied that some other conversations surrounding race — aside from Redmond’s remarks — will take place on the upcoming season, which is currently in its last weeks of filming. “I can’t really talk about the other cast members, but there’s another reason why we had to do that, as well,” she said. “You’ll have to wait and see [what that is].” Simmons said in regards to Locken’s insensitive remarks from Season 4 about her co-star Kary Brittingham’s Mexican heritage, the cast doesn’t “really talk about that” this season since Locken, 53, is no longer on the show. Conversations about race will not only be a focal point on “RHOD,” but also in “My Brothers’ Crossing,” a film Simmons co-produced with her husband, Jeremy Lock, a former photojournalist."

NeNe Leakes deletes Instagram over rumors of return to ‘RHOA’ (Page Six) "Nene Leakes has deleted her Instagram account after routinely being asked by fans whether she’ll return for Season 13 of Bravo’s “Real Housewives of Atlanta.” There’s been buzz about Leakes’ contract negotiations to return. Sources have said she’s been holding out for a bigger payday, but Bravo might add fresh faces instead."
Former Real Housewives of Sydney star Krissy Marsh says the drama on the show 'wasn't scripted' and that producers were shocked by how nasty and toxic the cast were (Daily Mail/Back from Reality Podcast) "The Real Housewives of Sydney was infamously dubbed 'too extreme' to air in the US. And in a new interview, cast member Krissy Marsh claims that not only was the drama not scripted, but that producers were blindsided by how nasty the cast turned out to be. Speaking to the Back From Reality podcast, the 48-year-old said: 'I don't think even the producers knew what they were getting.' She added: 'I don't think they realised how crazy and how nasty some of these women were.' The former reality star said that none of the drama was fake, and that producers didn't even need to encourage anybody to drink because the women 'were getting drunk on our own accord'. Krissy said that things got so nasty and vicious at one point that she quit the show during filming to try and protect her family. Krissy revealed that she rallied some of the other cast members together and that they all walked out on a scheduled promotional shoot for the show until producers agreed to remove a potentially defamatory scene from the series. 'They had no option but to basically cut out and write out what had been said that night,' she said. While Krissy declined to reveal what exactly was said, she said it was much worse than the drama that viewers saw on screen and that it was something that could've affected her children. She added that the mystery castmate that said the remark about her family was 'not of sound mind'."
Real Housewives' Gizelle Bryant 'disturbed for days' by Candiace and Monique 'brawl' (Daily Star UK exclusive) "Speaking exclusively to Daily Star Online, Gizelle, 49, revealed just how shell-shocked she was about the alleged incident. The mum-of-three told us: "I was completely shocked, I was disturbed for days afterwards. "When we film we have real emotion but we always have found a way for things not to escalate to that level and for it to get there was never something that I thought would happen, so I wasn't happy." She continued: "But it allowed us, on the other side of it, to really have some good discussions about who and what we are as black women in this country, and what we represent. "So if there's any silver lining, it's that we were able to talk about what matters and to kind of hold ourselves up to a level that we're proud of." Re: the men of Potomac getting involved in the franchise, Gizelle laughed: "I think they want to hold a champagne glass [in the opening credits], I think they want to be Housewives! I really don't understand it. And we see more of that this season as well." The beauty joked that she would "co-sign" the decision if producers were to make Michael a featured Housewife in the opening credits, adding: "Michael gets into more trouble than anyone else," Gizelle told us. "Michael gets into all kinds of nonsense. "I don't really know how it was handled between he and Ashley because they have their own personal things, I wasn't there, so I'm curious to see those things just as much as everyone else is." But she teased big things to come, as she cryptically finished: "Michael Darby at our season finale, he stole the show."
Former Black Female TV Execs Launch New Production Company For Diverse Storytelling (Forbes) "Lauren Grace Media, a new production company helmed by two veteran reality television executives, has entered the discussion with a clear mission: To tell diverse stories that people of color can relate to. The company is owned and operated by Dorothy Toran, a former producer for Bravo’s The Real Housewives of New Jersey, and Leslie Farrell, a former vice president of production at NBCUniversal and Bravo Media. “I had been on Jersey Housewives for six or seven years,” says Toran, now president and executive producer of Lauren Grace Media. “Just like everything else, it had been a wonderful experience, but you always get to a point when you are doing something for a really long time and you hit a wall creatively and want to explore what's next. I really wanted to be able to tell stories that I wanted to tell.” But the duo’s professional history has certainly come in handy: Their first project, a 90-minute special titled Race in America: A Movement Not a Moment, aired on Bravo TV, Toran and Farrell’s former company, earlier this month. The special features an in-depth discussion on issues of racism between reality stars including Kandi Burruss and Gizelle Bryant, who weighed in with their personal experiences. “When you think of people who are wealthier than you, famous, or celebrities on television, you think that their life is different,” says Farrell, senior vice president of development and executive producer of Lauren Grace Media. “But what I think that Race in America really showed is, as a Black person in this country, it doesn't matter what echelon you are on. We all share these experiences because racism is systemic.” (more in article)

'RHOP': Wendy Osefo on Why No One Should Be Team Candiace or Team Monique and That Mr. Chocolate Slip! (ET Online) "Dr. Wendy Osefo didn't really know what she signed up for when she signed onto The Real Housewives of Potomac. "Can I be honest?" the RHOP rookie asks under her breath on video chat with ET. "I watched Potomac once I was cast on the show! So, OK, what happened? Let me get up to speed! Who are these people?" Wendy says her mom, Susan, became her go-to resource for learning about the group of women she now found herself surrounded by, getting insight into the complicated dynamics of Karen Huger and company by way of the loyal viewer. "When I don't get things, my mom is always like, 'Well, let me tell you the backstory of how we got here…'" Wendy admits. "I'm like, 'OK, Mom. What happened?' She's my Cliff's Notes." This week, fans will see Gizelle Bryant discover that Candiace called her a "monster" while giving Wendy a rundown of the women. It was a moment in Housewives education for Wendy -- who's actually a professor at Johns Hopkins University -- as she realized something relatively innocent could be twisted into drama. "I didn't know Candiace to be [messy] and I don't know if it's necessarily trash [talking], I think she just stated her opinion about each of the women," Wendy says. "She also stated to me very clear, 'These are my feelings. I want you to go in there and I want you to make your own decisions.' That's it. 'I'm not telling you what to do. I'm not telling you who to be friends with. This is just what I have experienced knowing them for these amount of years,’ and that's really what the conversation was." "She even said that with people who her relationships were not so good with, like someone like Ashley [Darby]," Wendy notes. "She said, 'This is how I feel but I want you to meet her and make up your own mind.'" Wendy says she really did want to form her own opinions of the women -- and did, quickly. Most notably, Karen. The self-proclaimed "Grande Dame" of the group wasn't exactly welcoming to Wendy, according to Wendy; it's not a huge surprise to viewers, as Karen admitted she was "not impressed" with Wendy within seconds of Wendy appearing onscreen for the first time. In another episode, Karen turned away from Wendy mid-conversation to start a chat with someone else at a party. Then, Karen went on Watch What Happens Live With Andy Cohen and pulled a Mariah Carey, saying, "I don't know her." Wendy says of all her new friends, Karen surprised her the most: "She portrays herself as this Mother Goose, as this motherly person, that's not what I got from her. Karen is older than my mom, and so I didn't even expect her to concern herself with me, you know? For me, I look at people who I could be their mom almost like a mentor-mentee relationship. So to go out of your way to bully someone who you could be their mother? It's just like… what?!" Runner-up for biggest surprise was Ashley. Wendy was expecting nothing but drama from RHOP's youngest star, especially after getting the lowdown for Candiace, who famously pulled a butter knife on Ashley last season. Instead, Wendy found a "super zen" woman she could bond with over babies. Both Ashley and Wendy welcomed new children just before season 5 started shooting." The whole season seems to be leading up to RHOP’s most dramatic moment ever: a physical altercation between Candiace and Monique Samuels. The fight made headlines in the fall when it happened, but few details about what went down have been revealed. "I would say it was heartbreaking," Wendy shares. "It was really something that I wish had never happened. If I had a magic wand, I would make it go away." "That's the watershed moment," she adds. "That is the watershed moment of Potomac. And I say that, even though I'm coming in the fifth season, I believe that's the moment and has been the moment that's changed the dynamic of all the relationships. And it's changed it to the extent that some people have said, there’s no turning back. I am hopeful that they will change their minds. I am hopeful that we can come back together as a group, but whatever happens from this point, that moment is going to be what defines it." "I like both Candiace and Monique and when I saw it escalating, I said, I don’t know where this is gonna go. I have a feeling where this is gonna go, but as long as I'm around, I don’t want it to go there," she recalls. "Unfortunately, I'm only but one person and if they're gonna go at it, they're gonna make their decisions to go at it." “But you know, I'm that girlfriend -- I'm that girlfriend that, if something happens, I'm gonna be right there to make sure I got your back, and I'm gonna be right there to protect both people," she adds. "I won't run away. Like some people did… or one person did." In classic reality TV fashion, there's a Team Candiace vs. Team Monique debate between the RHOP fandom playing out online, with some of the cast weighing in and appearing to choose sides. Wendy says, that's foolish. "I am not Team Candiace nor Team Monique. I'm Team Right or Wrong," she proclaims, "and that's where people are getting messed up, because people are looking at the individuals, and people are failing to look at the actions." "Anyone who tries to frame this as Team Candiace or Team Monique, they're playing their hand because it's not about that," she says. "It's right or wrong, simple." The ladies of RHOP have said both that no one was right and that one person was right, the other was wrong in the Candiace vs. Monique moment. Wendy says that decision really lies with the audience to decide. "It's all about gradations, right?" she offers. "This is what I will say: You have to understand, if I kick you and then you retaliate by throwing a grenade at me, you have to decide is it two rights, two wrongs, or was one person more wrong or one person more right? And that's what we're dealing with here." (LOTS more in article! It's a long one. Worth reading the whole thing.)
Luann de Lesseps Sets the Record Straight on Constantine Maroulis Dating 3 'RHONY' Stars (ET Online) "I didn’t date Constantine," de Lesseps candidly said while on SiriusXM’s The Michelle Collins Show on Friday. "Constantine has been in my cabaret show [Countess and Friends]. He is a great guy. Let's just say that we had, like, a flirt. I wouldn’t say I dated Constantine." "I was showing the girls a picture of Constantine on the show and that’s when I discovered that he had dated Tinsley," she continued. "And I spoke to him and he said, ‘I didn’t date Ramona. We hung out, but I didn’t date Ramona.'" De Lesseps added that as the rumors circulated, the singer texted her. "And he's like, 'What?!' Anyway, he's a great [guy.] I love Constantine. He's a great singer and he is sexy."
2020.07.31 17:44 JeffreyBoswellNFL 2020: The Year In Preview
* Myles Garrett and former New Orleans Saint Kyle Turley meet for a charity helmet-removal ceremony on November 14th, the anniversary of Garrett's incident with Mason Rudolph. The event, dubbed "The Great American NFL Jerk-Off," raises $250,000 for charity. * After 149 receptions in 2019, the Saints Michael Thomas one-ups himself, posting 150 catches, 79 more than Miami's DeVante Parker. Thomas then tweets at Parker: "Congratulations! You made the 'All Pronoun Team,' because no one knows your name. #He.'" * DeAndre Hopkins explodes to start the season, with 32 receptions, 396 receiving yards, and 6 touchdowns in his first four games. Asked what the key to his amazing success is, Hopkins replies, "Miles and miles of separation ... from Bill O'Brien." * Philip Rivers has the second-most famous surgery for a Colts quarterback when he undergoes a vasectomy in October. In his next game back on October 18 versus the Jets, Rivers shoots blanks in the first quarter, going 0-7. Rivers bounces back the following week, when he and his wife announce that they're expecting their 10th child in July. On the year, Rivers is efficient and limits his interceptions as the Colts ride the league's best rushing game and a strong defense to the AFC South title. * In his first game as a Falcon, Todd Gurley rushes for 11 yards on 8 carries and 4 touchdowns, all 1-yard touchdown runs, as Atlanta beats Carolina, 31-24. A knee injury sidelines Gurley in Week 4, an ailment which never fully heals. Gurley ultimately plays in only 7 games, and leads the league in touches, from the medical staff. * Jameis Winston cuts his interception total from 30 in 2019 to 17 in 2020. Winston attributes the vast improvement not only to clearer vision due to Lasik surgery, but also to attempting only 34 passes as the backup to Drew Brees. The Saints finish the season 12-4, one game ahead of the 11-5 Buccaneers, and beat the Buccaneers in the NFC Championship Game. * The Las Vegas Raiders christen Allegiant Stadium on opening day as former Raider legend Sebastian Janikowski serves as Master of Ceremonies. After ceremoniously breaking a bottle of Dom Perignon on the stadium's facade, Janikowski opens another bottle and offers glasses of champagne to each of the 32 Raiderettes, who all unanimously decline to drink. The Raiders are toast in their opener, as the Saints crush them, 31-12. * On opening day against the visiting Chargers, a sluggish Joe Burrow tosses 4 interceptions, is sacked 5 times, and vomits on the field in the third quarter. In the post-game press conference, Burrow apologizes for his performance, and promises to learn from his mistakes, and swears he'll never spend another Saturday night with Pacman Jones. On the season, Burrow passes for 3,756 yards and 4 touchdowns with 16 interceptions, and the Bengals finish 3-13, last in the AFC North. * After re-aggravating a back injury on October 4th, Rob Gronkowski announces his retirement. Just two days later, Gronk agrees to terms to host two new television shows during fall sweeps, Discovery Channel's "The Science of Drinking Games," and MTV's "Celebrity Sack Tap." * On November 1st, with the Packers holding a 10-point lead over the visiting Vikings with 7 seconds left and with possession, a heartbroken Aaron Rodgers takes a knee, and proposes to former girlfriend Danica Patrick. In a touching twist, Brett Favre rolls up in a golf cart and presents the band, a green opal set in a 100% copper ring, as well as a Copper Fit wedding gown. Patrick declines the offer via Twitter, and later reveals she left Rodgers for David Spade. Rodgers leads the Packers to a second-place finish in the NFC North and a wild card berth in the playoffs. * In November, Christian McCaffrey opens a nightclub in downtown Charlotte called "Run CMCBGB's WWJD," a venue that offers Christian rock, world-class atmosphere, and exotic VIP lounges, all in an alcohol-free environment. The club shutters its doors in December due to lack of interest. McCaffrey is all business on the field, and leads the NFL in touches for the second consecutive year, with 399, and later pens a book chronicling his 2020 season, titled "Just Give Me the Darn Ball." * ESPN's 2021 "Body" issue breaks new ground, featuring not athletes, but the equipment that trains them. Not surprisingly, football's "Jugs Machine" lands the coveted cover spot. * Cam Newton easily wins the starting quarterback job in New England and dominates in the Patriots first four games. Newton enters the Week 5 game against the visiting Broncos with 4 rushing touchdowns and 7 passing scores, but literally loses his "s," crapping his pants when he sees Von Miller across the line. Amazingly, the incident leads to an endorsement deal with Nautica's fashion sleepwear, in which Newton appears in print ads saying, "When you're pooped and need a change, try Nautica pajamas." * On his first two rush attempts as a Bronco, Melvin Gordon fumbles, and the "Melvin Gordon II" memes are born, such as "Time II Bench Melvin Gordon," "Dos Ickies," "II Bad," "All II Often," and "Boyz II Bench." Gordon's ball-handling struggles continue into October, but he eventually turns things around, thanks to the help of a clinic of hypnotists, whom Gordon refers to as his "Dream Team." Gordon finishes the season with 799 yards on the ground and 450 receiving yards with 7 total touchdowns. * The Seahawks visit the Rams on November 15th, and Jalen Ramsey and Jamal Adams convene at midfield prior to kickoff. The two exchange pleasantries and discuss plans to co-write a book tentatively titled "How to Alienate Friends, Influence Public Opinion, Be the Walking Definition of 'Disgruntled' and Force a Trade." In a Week 14 contest versus the visiting Jets, Seattle defeats Adams' former team 27-13. Adams has 2 interceptions, but complains he could have played better. * Bears legends Mike Ditka and Willie Gault team up to promote American Home Equity Bank & Semi-trust's "Double Reverse Mortgage," which encourages elderly Bears fans to "live fast, die soon." Chicago's on-the-field product is just as untrustworthy, and a 2-5 start results in the firing of Matt Nagy on October 27th. Ditka is briefly considered for the job along with Bob Swerski, but the assignment ultimately goes to defensive coordinator Chuck Pagano, who leads the Bears to a 7-9 finish. * With his signature blond hair back, Odell Beckham, Jr. announces the "Blond Ambition Tour 2020." Beckham later appears on the cover of Vogue, then completes the hat trick when he reveals that he is dating Madonna. Beckham finishes the season with 87 receptions for 1,234 yards and 10 touchdowns, while the Browns finish 9-7, behind the Ravens and Steelers in the AFC North. * Attendance is Los Angeles for the Chargers first four home games is abysmal, with attendance averaging around 30,000 in SoFi Stadium, which seats 70,000. Many attribute it to the unwillingness of San Diego and surrounding area residents to travel to Los Angeles, a phenomenon called "SoCal Distancing." The Chargers struggle on the field also, finishing in a tie for last in the AFC West with the Raiders at 6-10. * Patrick Mahomes purchases an island in the Lesser Antilles on September 17th to celebrate his 25th birthday. With a massive $477 million contract under his belt, Mahomes christens the getaway "Treasure Island," and posts a Gilligan's Island-themed pic on Twitter showing Mahomes as Gilligan and Andy Reid as the Skipper. Mahomes passes for 4,788 yards and 42 touchdowns and the Chiefs repeat as Super Bowl champions when they defeat the Saints, 31-27. * After seeing the 2010 movie Inception, Dallas owner Jerry Jones asks his R&D department to inquire into the possibility of "planting a seed in the head of that agent of Dak Prescott's." Jones is talked out of the scheme and into "Plan B," which is merely receiving an 8x10 signed photograph of Leonardo DiCaprio. * Former Carolina and Dallas defensive end Greg Hardy is victimized by an elaborate prank organized by Sasha Baron Cohen. In the scheme, Cohen, posing as a UFC matchmaker named "Joo Shih Tzu," convinces Hardy to participate in the organization's first inter-gender contest, to take place at UFC 253 in Las Vegas against a female opponent to be named later. Hardy readily accepts before Cohen reveals the ruse, sending Hardy into a frenzy. * Drew Brees finally "takes a knee," albeit just to the groin, when he appears as a guest on MTV's "Johnny Knoxville's Jackass NFL Punt, Pass, and Kick in the Balls Special." The show airs as part of the network's "Football is Back" programming on September 9th, sandwiched between 12 hours of "Ridiculousness." * In the Packers home opener against the Lions on September 20, Aaron Rodgers connects with DaVante Adams on a 15-yard TD pass late in the first quarter. Adams then celebrates with a Lambeau Leap into the empty stands and bangs his head on an empty seat. Adams enters the NFL's concussion protocol, while the Packers secure a federal loan to outfit the end zone seats with NASCAR's "SAFER Barrier." * Gardner Minshew II lights up the Bengals in Week 4 for 450 yards passing and 5 TD passes in a 42-17 Jags rout. Minshew is named AFC Offensive Player of the Week, and honor topped just a day later when Minshew is tapped for the role of Bo Darville in Smokey and the Bandit 4. * Washington stuns the Cowboys, 24-23, on Thanksgiving, led by 3 TD scores, 2 on the ground, from Dwayne Haskins. Haskins celebrates back in D.C. on Friday night, a little too hard, and is cited for urinating in public, leading to the embarrassing headline "Dwayne Vein Drain" in The Washington Post.

2020.07.26 00:09 ADPX94An inappropriately long and probably biased opinion piece of the Denise Richards drama
I posted this on the other RH sub but thought you guys might enjoy it, as well. 🤷♂️ It’s pretty lengthy, though, so feel free to completely ignore it! I’ve been team Denise all season but after some quiet reflection (i.e. hours spent watching the show and reading everything about it), I’ve decided it’s the hill I’m going to die on. In trying to convince a friend to ditch team Kyle and join the right side of Real Housewives history, I wound up writing more than ever needed to be said on the topic and so, I thought I’d share it with people who might actually care enough to read it but probably won’t. 😂 To fully understand why a person would be team Denise, we need to first look back at her life before the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. Prior to it, Denise was married to Charlie Sheen. This is a man that cheated on her with hookers, sent her death threats, had a breakdown, and had a lot to say about biwinning and tiger’s blood. Furthermore, court records have also indicated that he had child pornography on his computer. In short, she’s seen some dark days with Charlie. It doesn’t stop there, though. All of this happened publicly and within their children’s lifetimes. Sam and Lola have had to carry the burden of being the children of Charlie Sheen their entire lives. This probably made it hard for them to make friends as no parent would want their kid hanging out with anyone associated with Charlie Sheen. While this is all just speculation, there’s no doubt that these thoughts have at least crossed Denise’s mind while raising them. It’s worth noting, too, that Charlie had other children with another woman and that Denise took them at one point, due to her and Charlie’s inability to care for them. That is beside the point but does indicate character, as it’s not something Denise HAD to do but chose to. Fast forward to last year. Denise joins the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, and quickly becomes a fan favorite of the audience. She’s down to earth, fun to watch, and has hilarious responses to the drama happening around her (she’s usually eating and has no idea why anyone is fighting). Her entrance onto the show coincided with Lisa Vanderpump’s last season, as the rest of the cast was finally successful in taking her down. For years, the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Revolved around Lisa Vanderpump’s alleged manipulations of other cast members in their attempt at take downs of her. Now that they’ve succeeded, it appears there’s really no storyline left for them but to now go after Denise. In the first episode of season 10, Teddi brings up to Denise that Charlie Sheen is trashing her in the media. This is particularly funny, as Teddi just shared on Twitter a text message with her dad, where she explains that Denise is the one always talking about Charlie Sheen. And yet, the first mention of him in this season came from Teddi, not Denise. It’s also interesting that Teddi appeared to have the news article memorized, although she very well could’ve been reading it from her phone. Either way, Teddi brought him up. Erika then felt the need to offer legal advice to Denise, despite the fact that Denise has been dealing with him for years and probably already knows what she needs to do. Erika then called Tom and asked him what he should do about her upcoming court date. Denise asked for none of this, by the way, but it’s not exactly the first time Erika or Teddi have dictated another person's story line while avoiding their own. Denise later decides to throw a family party at her new home and invites the cast over. She has an ice sculpture (obviously a nod to the diamonds they hold in the opening credits) that according to her, Eloise picked out. Could be true, could be a well-played guilt trip. Either way, it’s the least of our worries. Kyle shows up to this party early and immediately starts talking shit about the decoration. If I recall correctly, she was already bothered by Denise taking Dorit’s side in a previous argument. Anyway, she later calls Denise a ragamuffin behind her back. While Kyle has portrayed herself as a girl's girl, none of this is particularly surprising, as jealousy has run rampant in her life since the very beginning of it. You don’t even have to hate Kyle to see that. Think about it. She grew up in Kim’s shadow, played “cool aunt” to Paris Hilton as an adult, and then finally snagged a leading role on reality TV only to play second fiddle to Lisa Vanderpump for the next nine years. When Lisa was finally run off the show in season 9, Dorit and Denise were the only ones to come out unscathed and still be well-received by the audience. Incidentally, those are the two that Kyle’s come at the hardest this season. The same night Kyle calls Denise a ragamuffin, all of the women decide to discuss sex at the dinner table, despite the fact that there are kids one table over. Denise points this out, but it’s downright ignored. In her own home, no less. . Denise had already mentioned Aaron’s penis at that dinner, giving the impression that anything she’d have to say about the threesome conversation is null and void. However, she made one comment and did so in a much quieter fashion. It’s unlikely anyone at the kids table had heard her. Then, Kyle attacks Dorit yet again over glam and storms out of her party (only to be offended when Denise does the same later on). The following day or so, Denise brings up to Erika that she didn’t appreciate the adult conversations taking place around her children and their friends. Erika apologizes and we think that’s the end of it. However, Erika was not the only one to do this, so Denise does what any normal person would do and discusses it with the other women involved. All seems to be okay, until Lisa Rinna sinks her hooks into what appears to be at the very least a potential storyline, but more likely another takedown of someone more popular than her. In Santa Monica, the women discuss threesome-gate and it’s at this moment that Erika breaks her number one rule and talks about somebody else’s child. She says that Sam and Lola probably know what a threesome is, if they haven’t had one already. This is the same woman who snapped on Eileen for saying “ it’s not like she killed your child” during the confrontation in Hong Kong. Why is it that Erika can say whatever she wants about a person's kid, not to mention in a nastier fashion, but no one can dare discuss her’s? Denise eventually shows up and is forced into a group discussion about threesome-gate, even though she already cleared it up with everyone individually. She gets questioned by Rinna on whether or not Sam and Lola know about Charlie’s hookers, as if that matters. Furthermore, she gets a reminder of Wild Things, a movie that she made over 20 years ago (a 90s classic I might add). As if that even matters or is relevant to the discussion. Denise eventually shuts the conversation down after they cross her boundaries yet again byasking her what the threesome-gate conversation with her kids was like. Flashbacks indicate that they were fine with it and if there’s one thing she should’ve done differently in all of this, it’s to say that it didn’t really bother them all that much. Not sure how much it would’ve mattered, but we all know this is what they’ll be harping on at the reunion. That’s not really the point, though. Denise is their mother and gets to decide in her own home what her kids are exposed to. And, these are kids that have already been exposed to so much. One would think because of that, they don’t need to be exposed to anything more. However, the ladies of Beverly Hills disagree and claim that because of how much their father’s put them through, they can say whatever they want in front of them. Erika basically says that to Denise, stating that a threesome is pretty low on the totem pole. As if it’s her right to decide that. Erika then accuses Denise of some “mom-shaming”, which is so ridiculous that I won’t even give it time. Asking your friends not to talk about sex in front of your kids is far from mom-shaming. Anyway, Sutton then makes a complete error of judgement and tells Denise not to bring the kids around next time, to which Denise responds that it was her party at her home. Sutton seems to get it and backs off immediately. Despite holding her own, Denise eventually gives up reasoning with these lunatics and says she’ll be more aware of bringing her kids around next time. The next morning, Teddy brings up threesome-gate yet again, for the reason that Denise shutting it down must mean that she’s actually angrier than she claims to be. Denise assures them that she’s not, and Rinna yells “OWN IT BABY”, still having no idea what it means to own something. And what exactly is Denise supposed to own, Rinna? We still don’t know. Either way, Denise does own her shit and follows up on her promise to be more aware of bringing her children around. At Kyle‘s family BBQ, she comes with her just her husband, where threesome-gate is brought up once again. However, this time, Aaron jumps in and makes a complete ass out of himself. Denise calls Teddi a shit stirrer, and starts cussing a little bit louder than she should around Dorit’s daughter (though Dorit didn’t seem to mind). And, I’m sure if Dorit had brought it to her attention l, Denise would have chilled out. Instead, we get the ever-accountable Teddi pointing it out... to someone else. Aaron and Denise eventually decide they have enough, hint to us some concerning dynamics in their relationship (“I’ll crush your fucking hand”), and then leave to go to a strip club. Denise noted on Twitter that this was clearly a joke and made that clear in her confessional, but that it was left on the editing floor. However, even if it wasn’t a joke, they have every right to grab a burger at the local strip joint. They are grown ass adults. Either way, Rinna takes us back to the group as malicious gossip and then does some pole dancing for the rest of the group. I think it’s around that time that Garcelle decides to jump ship while she still can. Denise then goes to Sutton’s event, where Erika picks a fight with her and while she’s in the bathroom. On a podcast, Erika explains that she wanted to have this conversation without Denise present, probably for no other reason than knowing he’d be too dumb to articulate his point. I get the feeling she doesn’t really like confrontation with people on her level, as we never really get to see any. Anyway, she goes off about “mansplaining” (letting us know how hip she is with words) and indicates that she would never let Tom do that. However, Tom has done exactly that. In season six, he not only talked down to the long-forgotten Kathryn Edwards during a dinner party, but told both Lisa Vanderpump and Erika not to interrupt him while he was talking. While Lisa gave a respectful nod and waited for the opportunity to circle the conversation back to her, Erika froze and sank back into her chair. Oh well, at least it gave Ken the chance to point out Tom’s acting like a judge when he’s just a lawyer. Anyway, Denise comes back from the bathroom and gets Aaron’s dumbass the hell out of there. All of this brings us to Kyle‘s tacky sign party, where Brandi Glanville shows up and reconnects with Denise and Aaron. She tells them that she wants to be in a throuple with them, which is pretty odd considering that (according to Brandi) Denise is basically blackmailing her to keep quiet about their affair. Nevertheless, Brandi gets drunk, falls all over every floor she can find in that backyard, and inadvertently giving us the gif we never knew we needed. The next day or so, Erika has her own party, where Rinna announces they’ll all be going to Rome. Denise then takes a moment to clear the air with Erika, who’s had a problem with both her and Aaron throughout the season. Denise explains her confusion of why this conversation is still going, stating that she can have adult interactions and still have boundaries with her children. Erica ignores this, probably due to her lack of a rebuttal (you’re blowin’ it, Tom), and changes the topic to Aaron’s tendency to “mansplain”. Denise responds with “we’ll get to that in a minute” and Erica reminds us of how cold she can be. Whatever, it’s just diamonds. But, in her confessional, she accuses Denise of trying to control the conversation, even though that’s exactly what she just did to Denise by bringing up Aaron’s “mansplaining”. If season 10’s given us anything, it’s the revelation of Erika’s Girardi’s blatant hypocrisy. Before the trip to Rome (or after if you believe the rumors), Kim Richards shows up to Kyle’s house to return some dresses. She’s in a hurry, because Brandi is waiting on the car. It’s apparently Brandi’s birthday and they’re going out for dinner. Or was it Reiki? Actually, it was dinner and then the story changed to Reiki. Anyway, Kyle, who’s miraculously made up with Brandi, tells Kim to go get her. Brandi comes in wearing a mic, indicating that this wasn’t really a random drive by. I suppose production could have mics on standby, but that’s really beside the point in all of this. Brandi tells Kyle and Teddi that Denise is not who she pretends to be, that she talks shit about all of them (which is fine with me, given that’s all they’ve done to her this season), and that she “trusts Brandi because she has something on Brandi” (when the story she tells would indicate that Brandi actually has something on her). She explains that she made out with Denise and that they eventually hooked up, due to the “open relationship” that she and Aaron are in. Apparently, the hook up took place at Denise’s place (or was it a hotel?), where from what we can gather, there was no rollaway bed and Denise‘s kids were asleep downstairs. Whether or not the kids’ room had a door on it is up for debate, however, as Brandi stated that it did and then two seconds later said that it didn’t. This is the first sign of Brandi’s story changing to whatever narrative needs to be pushed. She then ends the story in a dramatic fashion, stating that she was told that Aaron could never find out or else he’d killed Denise. So, according to Brandi, Denise was not in an open relationship but lied about that in order to have sex with Brandi (I’d like to think Denise has better taste but I disgress). However, Brandi is now saying on Twitter that she’s not making this up, that they DO have an open relationship, and that they even asked her to find girls for them. Are we really supposed to believe that two people as hot as Aaron and Denise couldn’t find their on girls to have sex with, that they need Brandi Glanville of all people to help them? Furthermore, are we supposed to believe this never-ending, always-changing the story? Well, Kyle seems to believe it, stating that Brandi may be a lot of things but that she is not a liar. She even went as far as saying that she was grateful for Brandi and Kim’s friendship, which has gotta be either a straight up or further proof that she couldn’t give a fuck less about Kim’s recovery. Nevertheless, of these statements contradict yourself footage we’ve already seen, as well as the blogs that she’s written in the past that state exactly the opposite. For example, one of her blog entries is even named “Brandi puts out lies”. Moreover, Kyle herself has sent cease-and-desists to Brandi in the past. What reason could she have for that? Either Brandi is a liar or the truth about Kyle Richards it’s just too painful for Kyle to hear. Either one is a honestly viable option. Still, it’s preposterous to even give credit to Kyle’s witness testimony of Brandi after everything we’ve seen over the years. The reunion has since been filmed, which Rinna referred to as bullshit. However, Dorit stated on WWHL that she disagrees with that assessment. It seems pretty clear from Rinna’sInstagram that something went down and she is still upset about it. One post indicated that it had something to do with the cease-and-desist that Denise sent out but unless it’s one dealing with something separate from Brandi’s allegations, that’s just not true. This is for the reason that Brandi will be sitting down with Andy Cohen to discuss that particular storyline. They wouldn’t really be able to, if there was a cease-and-desist preventing them from doing so. Rinna has also (presumably) indicated in her story that Denise is a “phony” and was even kind enough to provide us with its definition, on the off chance that we’re too stupid to already know what it means. It doesn’t stop there, though. What’s resentment without a little homophobia mixed in? In her most recent stories, she’s been referring to Brandi and Denise as “Scissor Sisters”. It would be safe to say that at the very least, the reunion did not go the way that Rinna wanted it to. This makes sense, given how bumbled their takedown of Denise has been so far. I mean, they didn’t even try to attack Aaron’s business. Of all the things these women could have gone after, the pharmaceutical paranoia would’ve been the most obvious to capitalize on. Idiots. 🤦♂️ Anyway, it’s also worth noting that Denise has unfollowed Erika, Rinna, and Teddi. Garcelle has also unfollowed Rinna. There still a few episodes left and time will tell who’s side we should be on, but it seems pretty obvious to me that team Denise is for the win.
2020.07.25 12:31 ADPX94An inappropriately long and probably biased opinion piece of the Denise Richards drama
I’ve been team Denise all season but after some quiet reflection (i.e. hours spent watching the show and reading everything about it), I’ve decided it’s the hill I’m going to die on. In trying to convince a friend to ditch team Kyle and join the right side of Real Housewives history, I wound up writing more than ever needed to be said on the topic and so, I thought I’d share it with people who might actually care enough to read it but probably won’t. 😂 To fully understand why a person would be team Denise, we need to first look back at her life before the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. Prior to it, Denise was married to Charlie Sheen. This is a man that cheated on her with hookers, sent her death threats, had a breakdown, and had a lot to say about biwinning and tiger’s blood. Furthermore, court records have also indicated that he had child pornography on his computer. In short, she’s seen some dark days with Charlie. It doesn’t stop there, though. All of this happened publicly and within their children’s lifetimes. Sam and Lola have had to carry the burden of being the children of Charlie Sheen their entire lives. This probably made it hard for them to make friends as no parent would want their kid hanging out with anyone associated with Charlie Sheen. While this is all just speculation, there’s no doubt that these thoughts have at least crossed Denise’s mind while raising them. It’s worth noting, too, that Charlie had other children with another woman and that Denise took them at one point, due to her and Charlie’s inability to care for them. That is beside the point but does indicate character, as it’s not something Denise HAD to do but chose to. Fast forward to last year. Denise joins the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, and quickly becomes a fan favorite of the audience. She’s down to earth, fun to watch, and has hilarious responses to the drama happening around her (she’s usually eating and has no idea why anyone is fighting). Her entrance onto the show coincided with Lisa Vanderpump’s last season, as the rest of the cast was finally successful in taking her down. For years, the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Revolved around Lisa Vanderpump’s alleged manipulations of other cast members in their attempt at take downs of her. Now that they’ve succeeded, it appears there’s really no storyline left for them but to now go after Denise. In the first episode of season 10, Teddi brings up to Denise that Charlie Sheen is trashing her in the media. This is particularly funny, as Teddi just shared on Twitter a text message with her dad, where she explains that Denise is the one always talking about Charlie Sheen. And yet, the first mention of him in this season came from Teddi, not Denise. It’s also interesting that Teddi appeared to have the news article memorized, although she very well could’ve been reading it from her phone. Either way, Teddi brought him up. Erika then felt the need to offer legal advice to Denise, despite the fact that Denise has been dealing with him for years and probably already knows what she needs to do. Erika then called Tom and asked him what he should do about her upcoming court date. Denise asked for none of this, by the way, but it’s not exactly the first time Erika or Teddi have dictated another person's story line while avoiding their own. Denise later decides to throw a family party at her new home and invites the cast over. She has an ice sculpture (obviously a nod to the diamonds they hold in the opening credits) that according to her, Eloise picked out. Could be true, could be a well-played guilt trip. Either way, it’s the least of our worries. Kyle shows up to this party early and immediately starts talking shit about the decoration. If I recall correctly, she was already bothered by Denise taking Dorit’s side in a previous argument. Anyway, she later calls Denise a ragamuffin behind her back. While Kyle has portrayed herself as a girl's girl, none of this is particularly surprising, as jealousy has run rampant in her life since the very beginning of it. You don’t even have to hate Kyle to see that. Think about it. She grew up in Kim’s shadow, played “cool aunt” to Paris Hilton as an adult, and then finally snagged a leading role on reality TV only to play second fiddle to Lisa Vanderpump for the next nine years. When Lisa was finally run off the show in season 9, Dorit and Denise were the only ones to come out unscathed and still be well-received by the audience. Incidentally, those are the two that Kyle’s come at the hardest this season. The same night Kyle calls Denise a ragamuffin, all of the women decide to discuss sex at the dinner table, despite the fact that there are kids one table over. Denise points this out, but it’s downright ignored. In her home, no less. Denise had already mentioned Aaron’s penis at that dinner, giving the impression that anything she’d have to say about the threesome conversation is null and void. However, she made one comment and did so in a much quieter fashion. It’s unlikely anyone at the kids table had heard her. Anyway, Kyle attacks Dorit yet again over glam and storms out of her party only to be offended when Denise does the same later on). The following day or so, Denise brings up to Erika that she didn’t appreciate the adult conversations taking place around her children and their friends. Erika apologizes and we think that’s the end of it. However, Erika was not the only one to do this, so Denise does what any normal person would do and discusses it with the other women involved. All seems to be okay, until Lisa Rinna sinks her hooks into what appears to be at the very least a potential storyline, but more likely another takedown of someone more popular than her. In Santa Monica, the women discuss threesome-gate and it’s at this moment that Erika breaks her number one rule and talks about somebody else’s child. She says that Sam and Lola probably know what a threesome is, if they haven’t had one already. This is the same woman who snapped on Eileen for saying “ it’s not like she killed your child” during the confrontation in Hong Kong. Why is it that Erika can say whatever she wants about a person's kid, not to mention in a nastier fashion, but no one can dare discuss her’s? Denise eventually shows up and is forced into a group discussion about threesome-gate, even though she already cleared it up with everyone individually. She gets questioned by Rinna on whether or not Sam and Lola know about Charlie’s hookers, as if that matters. Furthermore, she gets a reminder of Wild Things, a movie that she made over 20 years ago (a 90s classic I might add). As if that even matters or is relevant to the discussion. Denise eventually shuts the conversation down after they cross her boundaries yet again byasking her what the threesome-gate conversation with her kids was like. Flashbacks indicate that they were fine with it and if there’s one thing she should’ve done differently in all of this, it’s to say that it didn’t really bother them all that much. Not sure how much it would’ve mattered, but we all know this is what they’ll be harping on at the reunion. That’s not really the point, though. Denise is their mother and gets to decide in her own home what her kids are exposed to. And, these are kids that have already been exposed to so much. One would think because of that, they don’t need to be exposed to anything more. However, the ladies of Beverly Hills disagree and claim that because of how much their father’s put them through, they can say whatever they want in front of them. Erika basically says that to Denise, stating that a threesome is pretty low on the totem pole. As if it’s her right to decide that. Erika then accuses Denise of some “mom-shaming”, which is so ridiculous that I won’t even give it time. Asking your friends not to talk about sex in front of your kids is far from mom-shaming. Anyway, Sutton then makes a complete error of judgement and tells Denise not to bring the kids around next time, to which Denise responds that it was her party at her home. Sutton seems to get it and backs off immediately. Despite holding her own, Denise eventually gives up reasoning with these lunatics and says she’ll be more aware of bringing her kids around next time. The next morning, Teddy brings up threesome-gate yet again, for the reason that Denise shutting it down must mean that she’s actually angrier than she claims to be. Denise assures them that she’s not, and Rinna yells “OWN IT BABY”, still having no idea what it means to own something. And what exactly is Denise supposed to own, Rinna? We still don’t know. Either way, Denise does own her shit and follows up on her promise to be more aware of bringing her children around. At Kyle‘s family BBQ, she comes with her just her husband, where threesome-gate is brought up once again. However, this time, Aaron jumps in and makes a complete ass out of himself.

She then ends the story in a dramatic fashion, stating that she was told that Aaron could never find out or else he’d killed Denise.
