Hey isn't that...?: Catherine Ommanney at the Four Seasons
Cat Ommanney drawing a smattering of applause as she walked through the Four Seasons lounge Tuesday night -- as well as whispers of "Cat, we love you!" Little black dress on a thin frame. A surprise appearance by the breakout "Real Housewives of D.C." star/villainess, who has mostly hidden out in her native England since the show's premiere and her breakup from photographer husband Charles Ommanney. She was spotted having drinks with Fox5 anchor Will Thomas -- then dinner with her lawyer, A. Scott Bolden.


Teresa Says The Other Woman Rumors Are False And That Danielle Started Them

Article from Pop Eater.


We know how mad she gets when you bring up her nephew on TV, now Teresa Giudice is letting 'er rip about fresh rumors claiming her husband Joe is having an affair. Surprise! The 'Real Housewives of New Jersey' star has a hunch who conjured it.

"Who started that? Danielle [Staub]?" Giudice asks in an exclusive chat with PopEater. "She is pathetic and has way too much time on her hands."

A website called AbsurdtoSublime.net claimed to have learned from an "unimpeachable source" that Giudice's husband is dating a woman named Tara G.

Giudice puts it in plain language: "It's totally false," she tells us. "Trust me, Joe gets enough love IN our marriage, he doesn't need to look anywhere else. Unlike Danielle, I know how to keep a real man happy!"

The bad blood between Giudice and Staub boiled over big time during Monday's wild reunion show for the 'Jersey' girls when Teresa screamed bloody murder when Danielle tried to inject a family matter into the proceedings.

"Danielle doesn't intimidate me. I don't care if she stays on the show or not," Giudice told PopEater's Naughty But Nice Rob on Tuesday.

So, who is "Tara G." then? A friend close to Giudice tells us that the confusion may have something to do with another 'Housewife,' though one from across the country.

"Joe is not cheating on Teresa," our source reveals. "There is no Tara G. People saw Joe and Teresa out to dinner with Tamra from the 'Real Housewives of the OC' the night of Joe's [truck] accident and it got reported that that was his girlfriend. Tamra = Tara. But Teresa was with them both!"

Mystery solved? We'll keep you posted.

Melania Trump Turned Down The Real Housewives

Author: Brittany Talarico
Donald Trump sat down with The Insider and extended his well wishes to Michael Douglas. The mogul also addressed wife Melania’s offer to join The Real Housewives of NYC.

“They always want my wife to be on Real Housewives, but it’s not her thing,” Donald told The Insider. “She’s doing QVC and she’s doing great. [The show] wouldn’t be for her.”


Danielle Is Ducking Steve's Lawyers

Post from Radar Online.

Danielle Staub may be the central core of controversy on Bravo’s Real Housewives of New Jersey, but that doesn’t mean she is easy to find. A lawyer for her ex Stephen Zalewski has been having a hard time tracking Staub down to serve her legal documents, RadarOnline.com has learned exclusively.

Nace Naumoski, the attorney for Zalewski, is on the hunt for the reality TV star regarding Zalewski’s defamation of character and harassment lawsuit against Staub. RadarOnline.com broke the news that Staub was being sued by her former lover for statements she made on the show regarding a sex tape she claimed was made without her knowledge or consent.

Naumoski told RadarOnline.com that the case is moving forward and his process server is trying locate her whereabouts.

“My process server is out to serve her, but we’re having a hard time finding where she is,” he said. “She has a house in Wayne, New Jersey, and we’re not quite sure she still lives there… They’ve been to her house a couple times and no one’s there and I think a real estate agent told him [the server] that she might not be living there anymore and she’s living in Fort Lee, New Jersey.”

Naumoski said he’s not worried about eventually tracking her down, but questions whether or not the controversial housewife is dodging the system.

“It is possible that she’s avoiding service. But it’s like trying to run from the inevitable,” he added.
“We’ll find her, especially someone who’s a public figure like that, they’ll pop up somewhere. And if we can’t find her we can always ask the court to allow us to do alternative methods of service.”
On Monday night’s reunion episode, the topic of the sex tape was brought up briefly with Staub stating “he’s going to have some problems proving that” about the defamation claim. Naumoski said he plans on proving her wrong.

“She doesn’t seem to deny our claims that she knew about these tapes all along…all she said is good luck to them in trying to prove that-- and I have absolutely no doubt in my mind that we will easily be able to prove our case.”

Kevin Talks About Danielle's Past

Post from Radar Online.


Warning: This story contains graphic details
The sordid past of controversial Real Housewives of New Jersey star Danielle Staub has resurfaced as her ex-husband Kevin Maher recently testified - with even more details - about Danielle's dark life when she was still known as Beverly Merrill.
Photo:WENN
Danielle and Kevin were married in October 1988, and in his recent testimony, he reveals that when they married he was still wed to another woman -- a fact Danielle was aware of. In a videotaped deposition given in May, 2010, Kevin says he and Danielle got married because otherwise she would have been imprisoned for breaking her probation terms by hanging out with him, due to the fact he was a convicted felon. He says their relationship was marked by sex, drugs, and physical violence.

"Throughout our entire relationship from the very first day I met Danielle Staub till the end, there was cocaine involved just about every day of our lives," Kevin testified. The two met in 1986 at what Kevin calls a "cocaine party."

"We came into the hotel, and I believe it was the Mayfair Hotel, and there was a cocaine party going on with a bunch of drug dealers," Kevin said, adding later, "I believe I had sex with her in the bathroom."

Kevin delved deeper into their intimate relationship. When asked how many times he and Danielle had sex in the years they were together, he responded: "... it was every single day, morning, noon, and night... It was all day, all night. So it was more than - I'll say it was more than - more than four times a day."

He later added, "Danielle Staub, is in my opinion, a nymphomaniac. She wanted sex everywhere, any way she could get it."

The testimony is part of a lawsuit Maher filed against Staub for what he claims are untrue statements she has made against him.
Staub has alleged that Maher raped her on a bed of glass, inserted a gun into her vagina and played Russian roulette, and killed her dog by hanging it.

Maher adamantly denies the claims, calling them "complete lies." However, he did chronicle the violent side of their passionate relationship, admitting he has slapped her and pushed her around. Maher claims he did such things in self defense.

"The woman is a violent, aggressive woman. And she's 5 foot 7 tall. And when that woman came at you, I defended myself. I cannot recall a time where I hit her that I was not defending myself," Kevin told Staub's lawyer during the deposition.

Later, he continued in more detail. "I know we would get physical. I know I would take her down to the floor and try to hold her down, and she was kicking, scratching, biting. She took a knife and cut me...I've never punched her with a closed fist. I open-hand slapped her. I did pretty much- I think my biggest routine with her was I mushed her. I would grab her face and push her away from me. But I never was the aggressor in any altercations that I ever had with that woman."

When asked earlier if he thought It was okay to get physical in a fight with a woman, Maher said "no" but then added, "People from New York are animated" shortly before his lawyer jumped in to wisely cut him off.

Danielle Does A Show-And-Tell At The Reunion

Post From E! Online.

By: Mark Malkin
When Danielle Staub and her maybe-girlfriend Lori Michaels performed on Watch What Happens Live, the show's host, Bravo exec Andy Cohen, didn't think they were together in a romantic way.

But he's thinking differently these days about the resident vixen of The Real Housewives of New Jersey and the singer-songwriter he's dubbed "Lesbian Superstar Lori Michaels"…

"I felt that Lesbian Superstar Lori Michaels was giving me eye language at the Bravo Clubhouse when we did Watch What Happens Live that said it was not," Cohen tells me. "I just got the vibe from Lesbian Superstar Lori Michaels that it was not happening."

Andrei Jackamets/Bravo
But then he ran into them a couple of times in Atlantic City before they taped the reunion. "I saw them arriving together at the Borgata the day before and then I ran into them in the lobby," he said. "I really got the sense that they were together."

As for that reunion, Cohen says—no, he promises—that part two airing on Monday will shock us even more than the cuss-filled rage Theresa spewed at Danielle in the first half. "What I'll tell you is that Jacqueline has something of an epiphany somewhere through the taping and her epiphany is really going to surprise people," he said. "Two things happen that I never would expect to happen in million years. Literally, the shots of me, my mouth is on the floor."

And this does not include Danielle's unexpected show-and-tell of the hair extensions that Jacqueline's daughter Ashley pulled out during the now infamous night at The Brownstone nor her confrontation with Kim G..
Cohen declined to say if he wanted Danielle back for another season. He laughed, "Too much, one thing at a time. We need to let the dust settle here."

Camille Says Kelsey Inspired Her To Do The RHOBH

Article from The NY Daily News.

By Soraya Roberts
According to his ex, Kelsey Grammer is partially responsible for "The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills."

The "Frasier" star's third wife says she joined the cast of Bravo's new reality series on his suggestion.

"The truth is I didn't want to do the show," Camille Grammer told accessholywood.com. "I wasn’t sure because I just didn’t want to expose my life in this manner."

But according to the former Playboy model, Grammer inspired her to take part in "Real Housewives," which is set to debut in October.
"When we were together, [Kelsey] thought it would be good for basically the country and women out there to know who his wife really is," she told the entertainment website.
The 41-year-old reality star and her husband separated in July after 13 years of marriage.

"Things fell apart between us. That is all," Grammer tweeted of his third marriage. "Camille did not want this but has made a very difficult decision and I respect her for it."

The Daily News quoted a source as saying Grammer didn't support his wife's interest in joining the cast of "Real Housewives."

"He's a control freak, so he didn't like her joining the show," the source said.

On Tuesday, Bravo announced the entire cast of "Real Housewives of Beverly Hills." Joining Grammer on screen are Oklahoma native Taylor Armstrong, British designer Lisa Venderpump, Sacramento Kings owner Adrienne Maloof and Paris Hilton's aunt, Kyle Richards and her sister, Kim.

"The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" premieres Oct. 14 on Bravo.

"The Real Housewives of New Jersey" continued to pull in record-breaking ratings for Bravo Monday night, with the show's reunion special becoming the highest-rated episode in the "Real Housewives" franchise history in all the key demographics and the No. 1 cable telecast for the day among adults 18-to-49, according to Nielson Media Research.

Part One of the reunion special drew 3.9 million total viewers and 2.7 million adults 18-to-49, with double-digit increases from last week's record-breaking finale, up 15 percent and 18 percent, respectively.
Monday's special marked the series' second consecutive week of earning Bravo's highest Monday telecast ever and the highest telecast of the year among total viewers, making Bravo the No. 1 network on television in its time slot among adults 18-to-49.

The episode, which featured all the New Jersey housewives under one roof for the first time ever this season, also bolstered Bravo's Monday night ratings. It helped the cable network earn its highest-rated Monday primetime ever among adults 18-to-49, averaging 1.2 million viewers in that demographic.
Bravo's Andy Cohen, who hosted Part One of the reunions, will also serve that role for Part Two of the supersized reunion special, airing next Monday, Sept. 6 at a new time, 9 p.m., immediately followed by the series premiere of "Thintervention" with Jackie Warner at 10:15 p.m.
On the heels of the record-breaking ratings success of "The Real Housewives of New Jersey" Bravo also announced Tuesday that it will pick up a third season of the New Jersey reality show as well as a fourth season of its Big Apple counterpart, "The Real Housewives of New York."

Teresa And Joe Have Learned A Lot

Post from Radar Online.

Yes, the economy is even hitting the Real Housewives, such as New Jersey native Teresa Giudice.

The once-free-spending 37-year-old reality star talks in-depth about her family's money problems -- to the tune of being $11 million in debt -- in the upcoming issue of In Touch.

"I was humiliated," she told the magazine of her reaction after learning the news she'd have to declare bankruptcy alongside her real estate developer husband, Joe.

"Joe thought things were going to get better," said Giudice, whose epic spending sprees have made for content on the show.

Despite her husband’s initial optimism, Giudice said things kept trending downward financially for the Garden State couple.
She told the magazine that that she and her husband "have learned a lot from our mistakes," noting that he's now imposed a limit on her credit card spending in the wake of their money woes.

Guidice is currently seeking a raise from Bravo, the network that broadcasts The Real Housewives Of New Jersey.

Teresa Wants More Money Per Episode Or She Will Walk

Article from Chicago Now, Reality Zen With Jen.

The heck is this? Did she go to the Jill Zarin School of Tabolid Planting for Money Grabs?
Photo: Bravo
Before we start this story stinks to high heaven as a plant. But Teresa really only gabs to PopEater and Hack Job Rob so I'm not sure how reliable this is coming from Radar Online. What I've heard is that there is a money grab for the Jersey Goils because of the preliminary numbers from the Monday night Reunion show. They scored over 3 million viewers, which is the most BRavo has ever seen.

But this article claims that Tree wants a double in episode salary ($7500) a percentage of merchandise and DVD sales (all h'wives were mad that they weren't cut in on the syndication deal) which could come out to a cool million a year.

According to Radar, show her the money or she walks.

Walks and does what?

My verdict...this was planted. Caroline's actually the one that got them a sweetheart deal last year by hiring attorneys to do the negotiations. I'm sure that's happening again, and they will probably get the double salary, and that's it.
Filming is set to begin on Season 3 this Friday (just snips), so we'll have to wait and see.

Kelly Congratulates Bethenny And Wishes Her Well

Article from US Magazine.

On Tuesday afternoon, UsMagazine.com broke the news that Bethenny Frankel is leaving Real Housewives of New York after three seasons. ("Last season was scary and painful," Frankel told Us exclusively.)

Hours later, the big announcement still hadn't reached her onscreen foe Kelly Bensimon.

Photo:Bravo
"I didn't know she was staying or leaving," Bensimon told Us at Tuesday night's "Remixology" Bartender's Challenge Finals hosted by Appleton Estate Reserve at NYC's Macao Trading Co.
Bensimon -- who constantly traded insults with Frankel on the show -- then offered her thoughts on the departure. "Congratulations? I wish you well?"

The single mother of two daughters also addressed rumors about her own status with Bravo's hit; one report claims that Bensimon, 42, would appear "part-time" on the show's fourth season.

"I was just asked to come back and we haven't negotiated everything yet," she clarified. "But I can answer honestly I would either come back or I wouldn't come back -- we don't do part-time."
Of her decision to leave, Frankel, 39, told Us that the nonstop sparring with both Bensimon and former best friend Jill Zarin "took all the joy" out of filming the show. A new mom to daughter Bryn, 3 months, with hubby Jason Hoppy, she said she doesn't "see any reason to go back."

Jersey Girls To Visit Wendy Williams

Post from AHN.

By:Stephanie Sims
The Wendy Williams Show has been renewed for a second season. The show will premiere on Labor Day, Monday, September 6.

Filmed live in New York, The Wendy Williams Show covers a mix of hot topics, celebrity news and interviews, fashion, cooking and real-life advice with a wide range of guests in addition to a bit of ridiculousness that audiences have come to expect from host Wendy Williams – and that some other show hosts make fun of her for, for example, Joel McHale of E!’s The Soup.
Also new for the second season is a brand new sophisticated studio setting, allowing viewers to see the show from a new perspective as Wendy will continue to interview celebrity guests while overlooking the New York City skyline.

To launch into its second season, Williams has already scheduled a bevy of intriguing celebrity guests.

For the premiere of the show on Monday, The Real Housewives of New Jersey stars Caroline Manzo, Jacqueline Laurita and Teresa Giudice stop by to dish about the reunion show and tell Williams where they stand with castmate Danielle Staub.

Alex Talks To People About Her New Modeling Gig

Article from People.


Mark Wimberly; Rick Day


By:Aaron Parsley
Last season on The Real Housewives of New York City, fans cringed while Alex McCord subjected herself to a beach photo shoot by costar Kelly Bensimon, who came unhinged during a getaway to “Scary Island.” “That photo shoot was probably the only time I was ever really uncomfortable at a shoot,” McCord says of working with Bensimon as her photographer in the Virgin Islands.

 Now, McCord, who blogs weekly for PEOPLE about The Real Housewives of Washington D.C., is more comfortably back in front of the camera, thanks to a new deal with the celebrity division of New York Model Management. “I’ve since had the chance to shoot with some fantastic photographers…I’m very happy with the results,” she says. McCord describes her personal style as “eclectic,” which won’t come as a surprise to style fans, who’ve seen her in everything from Roberto Cavalli to a FEED-bag dress. “I love to mix things up and do ruffles one day, tailored another and then maybe buttoned up the next,” she says, adding that for fall she’s picked up “a military three-quarter length jacket from Walter that I love” and “a great turtleneck knit dress from Rolando Santana.” So what does husband Simon van Kempen and her sons, Johan and Fran├žois, think of Mom’s makeover? “Simon is very proud of me, and the boys think I look very glam.”

The RHONY Start Filming Sept. 20th

Post from The Wrap.


By Jeff Sneider
Bravo has renewed "The Real Housewives of New York" and "The Real Housewives of New Jersey," the cable network has confirmed to TheWrap.
The "New Jersey" girls will reunite for a third round, while the women of "New York" will return for a fourth season sans Bethenny Frankel, who recently announced her departure from the beloved reality series, though she's reportedly contractually obligated to make appearances on the show next season.

"Real Housewives of New York" begins filming Sept. 20.

Meanwhile, Bravo's "Real Housewives of New Jersey" reunion show drew 3.9 million viewers last night, making it the network's most-watched telecast of the season.

In other "Housewives" news, EW has revealed the cast of Bravo's latest reality series, "The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills." Joining Kelsey Grammer's soon-to-be-ex-wife Camille will be Adrienne Maloof (part owner of the Sacramento Kings and the Palms Resort in Las Vegas), Kim and Kyle Richards (sisters and former child stars whose niece is Paris Hilton), plus British designer Lisa Vanderpump and Taylor Armstrong.

The renewal news was first reported by the Hollywood Reporter.
