There’s never a dull moment in Taylor-land, is there? Days after a report stating Bravo may fire Taylor Armstrong, a new report has emerged claiming the controversial Housewife might resign from Real Housewives of Beverly Hills because Bravo is cutting her hours big time!

A lot can change in a week on a show like The Real Housewives of Atlanta. Case in point: Sheree Whitfield’s almost-son-in-law, Daman.
It was only a week or so ago that Daman revealed to Sheree that he planned on asking Tierra to marry him. He swore that he was completely committed and that he felt like Tierra was the most caring, most wonderful person he had ever met.
In a matter of days, Sheree had Daman looking at $70,000 rings. Hello, intimidation. He held his own, though, and purchased a beautiful $6,500 rock instead.
Next, the mother of the bride took Daman to visit the venue. (Apparently, people are booking venues for proposals these days.) When Daman made it clear that he had to get his drink on in order to pop the question, Sheree questioned how ready he was for marriage. She advised him that he had to feel 100 percent ready in his heart and in his mind.
Some might say that she even kinda talked him out of it.
A few days later, Daman dropped in on Sheree to tell her that he was postponing the proposal. Anyone else think Sheree’s “help” didn’t fare well for Tierra?
This news shouldn’t come as a surprise to anyone who paid attention to Jill Zarin on the last season of RHONY:
Oh, Jill Zaaaaaaarin. Give it up already and stop trying. I’ll admit, I’ve found you mildly amusing (albeit irreverent) in the past, but it’s just getting sad at this point.
The failed reality star recently hosted a “Find Your Magic” Spring Fashion Show at Macy’s in Philadelphia. The event presumably partnered with Jill to advertise her shapewear and her new jewelry line–both of which are sold at the department store–and was supposed to highlight spring trends and accessorizing.
As part of her appearance, Jill hosted a mini runway show and was supposed to educate attendees about incorporating the new spring trends into your current wardrobe, but sadly, Jill again let her guests down. No, she didn’t tell them being a stay-at-home mother sucked–it wasn’t that bad–she just didn’t impart any useful fashion information and bailed after less than an hour. At least according to one, less than impressed guest.
According to the Philadelphia Weekly Style Section, Jill was an uninspiring host. “I was hoping to see something new, but she [Jill] only showed trends that are in every other store,” PW Style reports. “The only trends discussed were bold colors and chunky heels.”
Even worse, Jill “couldn’t name what designer created each article of clothing. Several times throughout the show Jill mentioned that she loved a piece, yet had no idea who made it,” the review continues. “Rather than be professional and ask a Macy’s representative who it was, she just moved right on with the show…”
Sadly, things went from bad to worse after the show when an audience meet and greet was scheduled. The former Real Housewives of New York star demanded a makeup touch-up AND refused to wear a bracelet one of the Macy’s representatives had selected for her! Jill reportedly “ripped it off her wrist and threw it on the floor.” The reason? It wasn’t part of the Jill Zarin Jewelry Collection! A photo of Jill from the event is above.
Considering Jill allegedly has no other job to speak of, and what little celebrity she ever had is rapidly dwindling, you’d think she would take her gigs a little more seriously. Particularly because Macy’s sells her products and heavily promotes her.
So there you have it, Jill conducting herself with class, as always. Quick question: who is still booking this woman at events? #epicfail.
Gretchen Rossi’s boyfriend Slade Smiley was blindsided Thursday night by a debt collector as he left an industry event in Hollywood, and RadarOnline.com has all the details for you.
Smiley, who accompanied his Real Housewives Of Orange County gal pal to the “Night of a Billion Reality Stars” function at Hollywood’s Supperclub, was approached by an aggressive collector who broke into a profane rant about how Slade owes $160,000 in past child support payments.
“Pay your child support!” the man yelled. “Your son has cancer!”
Sexy Slade didn’t take the bait though, barely acknowledging the grey-haired collector as he kept his head held high, getting into a limousine to continue his night.

“Real Housewives of Atlanta” star Kim Zolciak’s new single “Love Me First” officially dropped Wednesday (March 28).
Listeners got a little taste of the reality star’s country debut earlier this month, but now the full song in all of it’s three-minute, 44-second glory is available for you to listen to on RyanSeacrest.com, where it made its world premiere.
The pregnant star of the upcoming “Don’t Be Tardy for the Wedding,” premiering in April on Bravo, sings on the track, “Before I love somebody else, gotta love me first.”
The country tune is a departure from Zolciak’s pop songs like “Don’t Be Tardy for the Party” and “Google Me.”
The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills are still under contract negotiations for their third season, but talk about Diana Roque Ellis possibly joining the show is growing by the day!
“Diana would love to do the show,” her rep Roger Neal told RadarOnline.com exclusively. “She says she is ready for the ladies and feels the show would be fun to do.”
Diana is close friends with RHOBH cast member Adrienne Maloof, and RadarOnline.com has the exclusive photos from her Christmas party where Diana posed with Lisa Vanderpump, Camille Grammer and Taylor Armstrong.
An insider said that Diana would be a perfect new housewife. “She thinks some of the women on Real Housewives are mean and she’d definitely like to be a part of the cast to stir up some drama!” the source said.
However, Diana hasn’t signed a deal with Bravo yet, and RadarOnline.com has exclusively learned that she’s in talks for a second reality show too!
Diana, 53, who was married to the wealthy Farley’s & Sathers Candy Company owner William H. Ellis, is also in talks with a production company to be in a reality show about rich ladies and their maids, tentatively called Housewives and Housekeepers.
“She’s filmed some promos for the other show,” an insider close to her told RadarOnline.com. “She would love to do either show and she’s expecting and hoping to hear soon.”
Diana is a San Francisco native who is an artist and specializes in painting large-scale allegorical images involving human form and faces, utilizing classical technique. The insider said that while she isn’t married now (not a requirement to be on the Housewives show she “is still looking for her Prince Charming.”
Watch out Brandi Glanville, there could be a new bad girl in town!
When we last saw The Real Housewives of Orange County, Vicki Gunvalson, Tamra Barney, and Heather Dubrow were headed to L.A. in a chopper to help the newest Housewife with a business venture. Meanwhile, Alexis Bellino was getting sliced and diced — and we got to see every piece of gunk that came out of her nose. Thanks, Bravo! In her latest blog for the network, Vicki was very supportive of all her castmates’ decisions from Season 7, Episode 7.
First up, Vicki is all for Heather’s opening a restaurant, saying she’s behind her “100 percent” — but maybe the brunette and her friends should launch “a great boutique, a shoe store, spa, or something that all women would love to pamper themselves at” instead. That doesn’t really solve Heather’s chain restaurant phobia, though, and none of the ladies have ever complained about a lack of places to shop in the OC, as far as we know.
Vicki was also supportive of Alexis’s and Tamra’s cosmetic surgeries. While she thinks Tam looked great enhanced, Vicki agrees her friend “looks better” after having her breast implants removed.
As for Alexis’s rhinoplasty, Vicki was pretty sympathetic — especially after Slade’s nightclub routine, when he poked fun the veteran Housewife’s own nose. “Since the correlation of Ms. Piggy to myself, it has crossed my mind if I need to get my nose fixed also. I am German and Norweigan [sic] and my nose is a ‘pug’ nose. … At first I was very hurt by those comments, but now I just have to realize that no matter what you look like — there are still people who feel the need to tear you down, which is very hurtful.”
Vicki adds that her late father has the same nose, which we think is a great reason to keep it just how it is.
Considering several cast members of the The Real Housewives of Atlanta haven’t been on speaking terms for ages, it’s no surprise that the show’s March 16 reunion taping was filled with over-the-top drama.
Case in point? As Wetpaint Entertainment exclusively reported, Nene Leakes shocked everyone by announcing, “I’m divorced!” when challenged about her dating life by frenemy Kim Zolciak.
In addition to that revelation, “the afternoon was pretty intense,” an on-set source exclusively reveals to us. “It was a whole day of fighting, yelling and accusation-throwing. Everyone was worn out by the time it wrapped.”
Our source, who was there, filled us in on two of the most notable battles that went down:
Nene vs. Sheree
Picking up where their big fight in the first episode of the season left off, former pals Nene and Sheree Whitfield argued over a soured business deal. Sheree also challenged Nene’s claim when she said, “I’m rich!” thanks to all those Trump checks.
The big money from Celebrity Apprentice, Sheree pointed out, is given to charity — and whatever fee Nene received to appear on the show was hardly enough to qualify her as “rich.” Nene quickly covered for herself, explaining she had meant she was rich in the spiritual and emotional sense, not just in terms of her finances.
Because Marlo isn’t a full-time cast member, she was only brought on for a limited segment during the reunion taping, but she certainly didn’t waste any time mincing words.
“In her normal fashion, Marlo was throwing out accusations right and left,” says our source. “She picked fights with everyone except Nene and Cynthia.”
“But she sunk really low when she went after Kandi, making all sorts of mean accusations about Kandi’s sex life. Kandi was livid. It looked like she wanted to throttle Marlo.”
“Marlo’s M.O. was obvious,” the source adds. “She wants desperately to become a Housewife, so she was trying to show the producers she could really bring it in terms of drama. No one thinks they’re going to offer her a bigger role, though. Fans don’t seem to like her.”
A rep for Bravo had no comment, but we can assure you there were a lot more fights, tears and shocking moments than the ones we’ve mentioned here. But it wouldn’t be fun if we gave EVERYTHING away.
That said, our on-set source tells us it will definitely go down as one of the most scandalous, emotionally charged reunions ever. Can’t wait to tune in and Watch What Happens? Neither can we!
Add this to the long list of stuff Gretchen Rossi probably regrets, soon I’m sure Slade will be one of them:
It’s not easy being the newbie on The Real Housewives of Orange County — just ask Heather Dubrow.
Dubrow’s costar Gretchen Rossi recently visited Us Weekly’s New York City offices, where she admitted to being quick to judge the wealthy brunette.
“I feel so bad because the new Housewife Heather Dubrow is actually the sweetest girl ever, and I really got to know her and like her a lot,” Rossi said. “However, when I first met her, she seemed a little pretentious to me. I think the exact words out of my mouth were, ‘I think you have a stick up your ass.’ It didn’t go over quite well when I first started with her.”
Rossi even mocked Dubrow’s acting career in a confessional, saying “I’ve never heard of you before.” In hindsight, the 33-year-old said she didn’t mean to offend Dubrow. “To my defense, unless you are truly an A-list actor, people aren’t going to know your name.”
Dubrow, 43, “added a fun dynamic to the group this season,” Rossi told Us. “She’s very straightforward. She just tells you how it is and she doesn’t hold back.”
Score one for Kim Z. here as Cynthia sure did some funky moves backtracking (she know damn well what she said about Kim in Africa) like that.
Bethenny Frankel’s own mother has launched a scathing attack on her daughter, claiming she’s “bored” of her husband and has “no respect for marriage.”
In an exclusive interview with Star magazine, breaking via RadarOnline.com, the reality TV star’s estranged mom, Bernadette Burke, has let loose on Bethenny’s troubled marriage to Jason Hoppy.
“His problem is he’s too nice, and she’ll grab another nice one, he is replaceable,” Burke said. “Nice is boring and Bethenny gets bored with nice. I know she is bored because I get bored watching him.
“She cheated on her first husband after her first couple of months of marriage. She doesn’t have any respect for marriage because she has never seen good marriages.”
Bernadette also had a few choice words about Bethenny’s parenting too.
“She has always hired people to take care of the baby, she doesn’t take care of that child she does photo shoots.
“She would never have married Jason but she wanted to have a child and the timing was right. She got what she wanted out of this, she married because of public opinion.”
As RadarOnline.com previously reported the star is set to lash out at Bernadette in an upcoming episode of Bethenny Ever After in which she will viciously state that she “hates her!”
Did Camille Grammer leave on her own terms — or was she pushed out?
As a source told Us Weekly Saturday evening, the 43-year-old ex-wife of Kelsey Grammer won’t be coming back for season three of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.
The former dancer and Playboy model confirmed it herself to Us later that night at the Grand Opening of a new Blizz Frozen Yogurt at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.
“I can’t say too much at this moment, but we couldn’t get it worked out,” the mother of two explained to Us. “I love these girls. I really do,” she said of costars Kim and Kyle Richards, Taylor Armstrong, Lisa Vanderpump and Adrienne Maloof. “I’ve had so much fun with the franchise, but I guess the producers and I couldn’t come to an agreement.”
Although a Grammer source had said “She just doesn’t want to expose her personal life anymore,” she claimed the ouster was “mutual,” and if she had her way, she’d be back for another round.
“I think I would have done it, definitely.”
Her buddies Adrienne Maloof and Kyle Richards were also at Saturday’s Blizz event in Vegas — and they’re bummed about her departure.
“It’s sad,” Maloof told Us. “Together the six of us were a great combo.”
Added Kyle Richards, “It’s going be sad not having her in the show. It’s sad.”
One major source of comfort for Grammer in her post-Housewives life is hunky boyfriend of eight months Dimitri Charalambopoulos, who was on her arm at Saturday’s party. “Everything is great. We get along really well,” gushed Grammer, who famously dealt with Kelsey’s affair with Kayte Walsh and subsequent divorce filing on season one of the show. “I care about him very much and we’re enjoying each other’s company.”
Big loss in my opinion, but not a surprise. It was Kelsey Grammer who put Camille on RHOBH in the first place and Camille herself always seem to be teetering on the edge of leaving the show anyway. But whether or not you liked Camille or hated her, she was never boring. And for all the drama she stirred up (esp. in Season 1) even her biggest hater should sympathize with how she got treated on and cheated on by her callous ex-husband, plus Camille deserves major props for being the only ‘Housewife’ to call out Kyle for being a “bully” as well as having the guts to confront Taylor about her domestic abuse Season 2. That said, I’m glad that we got to see the real Camille in Season 2 and she finally seems to have found happiness in her personal life so good for her.

Of course until Bravo or Camille herself confirms this news who knows what’s really up:
Real Housewives of Beverly Hills fans won’t get to watch what happens with Camille Grammer any longer.
The former dancer and Playboy model, 43, will not be returning for season three of the Bravo reality series, a source confirms to Us Weekly. “She just doesn’t want to expose her personal life anymore,” the source explains.
Indeed, the first season of RHOBH saw Grammer’s 14-year marriage to actor Kelsey Grammer fall apart as she battled with castmates Kyle Richards, Taylor Armstrong and other women on the show; she later accused her husband of landing her the reality series “to keep me preoccupied in California while he was off having his affair [with Kayte Walsh] in New York.”
She and Emmy-winning Boss actor Kelsey, 57, share kids Mason and Jude, and recently reached an amicable divorce and custody arrangement after a protracted, often ugly court battle. (Kelsey famously cheated on Camille with flight attendant Walsh; he and Walsh are now married and expecting twins.)
Newly-single Camille was much mellower and seemingly happy on season two of the smash — although she famously confronted her friend Armstrong about husband Russell’s physical abuse.
Meanwhile, Camille stepped out with hunky new boyfriend Dimitri Charalambopoulos last October. The duo are still going strong, and were spotted partying together on Friday night at N9NE Steakhouse inside the Palms Casino Resort in Las Vegas with her castmates Adrienne Maloof and husband Dr. Paul Nassif, Kyle Richards and hubby Mauricio Umansky.
