Real Housewivies Of Miami?

Post from The Miami Herald.

Miami `Real Housewives' spin-off still a go.

Seems that the Godzilla or Friday the 13th of TV, Bravo's wildly popular Real Housewives franchise, may have, indeed, invaded Miami in the guise of the tentatively titled Miami Social Club. Our behind-the-camera mole tells us that an ``official'' Real Housewives promo -- you know, the one where the ladies are either fondling a peach or something to represent their geographical location (in Miami's case, a bag of cocaine or a saline implant wouldn't be such a bad thing since an orange was already taken) -- was recently filmed with all the gals in tow. We contacted our official Bravo mouthpiece who was cagey, telling us that since no air date has been secured, the show sort of remains nameless. But it all sounds like it's pointing to that splashy, trashy, trainwrecky drama-fest many of us, ahem, have grown to love.

Post from Reality TV magazine.

Former star of BRAVO’s The Real Housewives Of New Jersey, Danielle Staub may no longer be causing drama with her enemies, but she will still be on our television screens. In a press release, details about Danielle’s new show have been revealed. Keep reading to hear all about it!

According to the press release, former The Real Housewives Of New Jersey Danielle Staub’s new show is coming to our television screens this fall. In her new series, which will be called “Social”, Danielle Staub will put a modern twist on the old 1980’s series Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous. Danielle will grab a celebrity friend and choose an event to attend, but first she will enlist the help of her hairdresser and daughters to help her prepare for the celebrity event. She will then take us for a tour of the celebrity’s home and then head over to the event of choice.

Danielle Staub seems excited to embark on this new journey in her life and she says “This is an opportunity for me to show my other side to fans. I have lived a whirlwind life and have dealt with a variety of people from all walks of life. Viewers will be in for some amazing surprises along this journey.” “Social” is set to premiere sometime in November, so keep your eyes peeled for it!

RHONY New Housewife

Article from US Magazine.

And the new Real Housewives of New York castmember is...

Cindy Barshop! "It's confirmed," a source tells exclusively.

Barshop is founder and owner of Completely Bare, a successful chain of day spas specializing in hair removal, with three locations in Manhattan, plus branches in Palm Beach, Fla. and Scarsdale, New York. The self-made Barshop is mom to twin daughters Zoe and Jesse, born in 2009.

Adds the source: "She's funny and very nice!"

When asked about RHONY, Barshop's rep had no comment. A rep for Bravo tells Us: "We haven't made any announcements regarding the cast yet."
In a recent interview with Us, housewife Ramona Singer kept mum on Barshop's identity. "We have this new girl coming on. She is very happy with herself," Singer, 53, told Us.

"Not to say I'm not going to get pissed at her or have a fight with her about something -- that's just who I am sometimes!"
Barshop would take the place of Bethenny Frankel, who first told Us Weekly of her decision to leave the Bravo hit after three seasons.

"Last season was scary and painful," Frankel, 39, told Us. "It took all of the joy out of it."

Now a new mom, wife and star of smash spinoff Bethenny Getting Married, Frankel famously clashed with costar Kelly Bensimon -- and her close friendship with Jill Zarin went down in flames. (LuAnn de Lesseps, Alex McCord and last season's newcomer Sonja Morgan round out the core cast.)

"She isn't leaving totally," Singer told Us of Frankel, who willi likely make cameos for season 4.

Ramona's Art Deco Jewelry

Interview from Fab Over Fifty.

Ramona Singer’s Art Deco Jewelry
You may know her as the manic mom on Bravo’s hit TV show, The Real Housewives of New York. And yes, Ramona Singer is definitely Type-A. But whether you jeer her or cheer her, it’s that over-the-top drive that helped Ramona escape her troubled upbringing and achieve her dream: A fashion career in New York City. FOF talked to this wife, mother and businesswoman about what it takes to make it. Plus we got a glimpse at her lovely new jewelry line for HSN. It will be featured on HSN this Sunday at 3 – 5 a.m. E.S.T. and 3-5 p.m. E.S.T.
Where did you grow up?
Stratford, New York–a very rural area. My backyard was apple orchards, deer and squirrels. My dad was an engineer for IBM, but most of our neighbors were farmers.

Did your mom work?
She got married when she was 18–she was pregnant with me. Then she had three more kids right away. I was her little helper—the laundry, cooking, cleaning.
Did you go to college?
I went to the fashion buying and merchandising program at FIT, and then I transferred to Albany State for business. I was always a worker—I actually put myself through college. After two years, my father said, ‘You’re just going to get married and have babies, I’m not going to pay for any more school.’ So I declared myself independent, got loans for school and worked two jobs while I got my degree.

How did you become so driven?
My parents had an abusive relationship—physically and emotionally. My mom would always say to me, “Don’t end up like me. You have to make your own money. Follow your passion.” And I always loved fashion…

What influenced you to like fashion?
My mother. Everyone else in Stratford was wearing jeans and t-shirts, and I was changing my nail polish every day to match my dress! I would sew my own clothes because my father was very frugal.

What was your first business in New York?
Closeouts. Clothing closeouts. I started it in my 30s and I worked like crazy. When I married my husband I had a million dollars in the bank.

When did you meet Mario, your husband?
Not till I was 37. I was a dater and a skater.

So you would run from commitment?
I was always picking men who were cold and aloof and then trying to get their attention. Before Mario I was in a serious relationship for five years with a man who would never commit. I finally worked on myself and got out of that.

Good for you. And how did you meet Mario?
He saw me the first time at the gym wearing one of those crazy 80s workout outfits—the leggings with the g-string. Remember? Later, he saw me in a restaurant and asked me out. We’ve been married for 18 years. We just renewed our vows.

What made you do that?
I see a lot of couples who get divorced when their kids go away to college. They don’t know what to do with themselves. Now my daughter is 16, and she’s getting more independent and I realized she’s going to be gone in a few years. I need to focus on my relationship with my husband and reaffirm my commitment.

When did you start the jewelry line for HSN?
After I started doing [Real Housewives], that got my adrenaline going—my creativity. I wanted to be on HSN, so I cold-called them, and they suggested I design a high-end jewelry line with real diamonds and gemstones
So you design it?
Yes. It’s modeled after my favorite style: estate, art deco jewelry. Things that are classic but always in style. You can wear them for 30 years and pass them to your daughters.

What’s your favorite piece?
I love them all! They’re like my children. But in the September collection I love the gold vermeil peices and the signature cuff bracelet. The wider, wood cuff is also great.

What’s the single most important thing you’ve learned in your career?
My mother was right. To be successful, you have to be passionate about what you do. You have to love it.
