Brandi Glanville ‘Totally Supports’ LeAnn Rimes’ Decision to Enter Rehab

31 Aug

With the kind of past these two have somehow I don’t believe Brandi is being 100% sincere here:

Putting their differences aside, Brandi Glanville is offering her support to ex-husband Eddie Cibrian‘s second wife, LeAnn Rimes.

On Wednesday, one day after her 30th birthday, Rimes checked herself into an in-patient treatment facility for anxiety and stress, her rep told Us Weekly.

“I totally support LeAnn’s decision to enter rehab — my top priority is my children, and at the end of the day we are a family,” Glanville said in an exclusive statement to Us Thursday. “LeAnn is their stepmom, and they love her. I am wishing her all the best and I hope she will find what she is looking for while in rehab.”

The 39-year-old Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star was blindsided in 2009 when Us broke the news of Cibrian’s affair with Rimes, his costar in the TV movie Northern Lights; Rimes was married to chef Dean Sheremet at the time. Glanville and Cibrian have two sons together, Mason, 9, and Jake, 5.

Cheating Allegations Put LuAnn De Lesseps’ Relationship With Boyfriend ‘On The Rocks’

31 Aug

RadarOnline.com:

The Real Housewives of New York City star, Countess LuAnn de Lesseps‘ relationship with boyfriend Jacques Azoulay, is on the rocks after allegations that she hooked up with a Johnny Depp pirate look-alike while on vacation with fellow cast members in St. Barts, RadarOnline.com is exclusively reporting.

“All of the housewives are sent advanced copies of the upcoming episode that is going to be aired a week beforehand,” a source close to the situation tells RadarOnline.com exclusively. “Normally, LuAnn and Jacques watch the upcoming episode together but this past week, for the first time in a very long time, they didn’t. The footage of LuAnn flirting up a storm with the Johnny Depp look-alike and the revelation that the countess brought him back to the house that night would seriously be a cause of concern for Jacques.

“Compound that with LuAnn’s bizarre phone call in which she tells the hot pirate to deny being at the house at all and LuAnn telling Jacques during a telephone call on the vacation that she had run into some of her old Italian friends and Jacques is very, very upset with LuAnn. Jacques just doesn’t understand why LuAnn would need to lie about the situation at all, unless she has something to hide. Their relationship is very much on the rocks, despite what LuAnn is publicly saying.” 

As previously reported LuAnn begged Bravo executives not to air footage of her and the pirate getting cozy.

“LuAnn begged Bravo execs to not air footage of the Captain Sparrow look-alike leaving the vacation house in the very early morning hours,” an insider previously told Radar. “LuAnn was absolutely beside herself at the prospect of the man leaving the house in the same clothes he was wearing the night before being seen on television, especially by her boyfriend.”

However, de Lesseps maintains she absolutely didn’t cheat on Jacques and wrote on her Bravo blog Tuesday: “What may have looked like infidelity on last night’s episode was in reality a ride home with a friend and a tour of the house after an evening of fun on vacation eight months ago.”

“Do you think I would bring a man back to a houseful of housewives (and cameras) if I were planning on having an affair?

“My big mistake was trying to avoid the speculation and assumptions by telling a white lie,” the Countess revealed, claiming that there is no trouble in paradise. “As I write this, Jacques and I are on vacation and we couldn’t be more united and happy.”

One Day After Father’s Death Paul Nassif Files For Divorce From Adrienne Maloof

30 Aug

Zap2it.com:

The number of actual wives on “The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” is dwindling even more: Paul Nassif officially filed for divorce from Adrienne Maloof on Tuesday (Aug. 28), reports TMZ.

Nassif was the one to originally file for legal separation from his wife of nine years in July. In the divorce docs, which cited irreconcilable differences as the reason for the split, he reaffirmed that he would like joint custody of his and Maloof’s three sons and acknowledged the couple’s prenuptial agreement.

Maloof had reportedly planned on filing her own divorce papers simultaneously but backed out at the last minute — possibly out of respect for Nassif, who lost his father the day before filing.

“Adrienne and I have tried very hard to make our marriage work, but this is the best course for both of us,” Nassif tells TMZ. “This is a difficult time for our family and my prime focus is to ensure our boys are well and happy. In addition, sadly I just lost my father yesterday — a man who taught me how to be a man. I deeply appreciate the outpouring of support from family, friends and patients. We will get through this.”

Gretchen Rossi Talks Overcoming Bulimia, Working Out With Hotel Lamps

30 Aug

Celebuzz.com:

With such a fast-paced schedule, how does Real Housewives of Orange County star Gretchen Rossi ever find time to work out?

“Because I travel so much, I end up doing a lot of my workouts on the road,” Rossi told Celebuzz in an exclusive interview. “I know it sounds silly, but I’ll literally get into a hotel room, pick up the bedside lamp and start doing bicep curls. Sometimes you just have to improvise when you don’t have the time.”

Revealing her “get fit” tips, Rossi — who ranked No. 25 on the Celebuzz 101 Hot Bodies countdown — gave Celebuzz the scoop on her guilty pleasures, her new secret health habit and which housewives she thinks are the hottest. (Hint: She doesn’t share an area code with any of them.)

Celebuzz: What was the ‘a-ha moment’ in your life that made you want to take health and fitness to the next level?
Gretchen Rossi:
I grew up playing soccer and softball, and was a cheerleader. So, I’ve always been extremely athletic. As far as taking my health to the next level, though, it was actually in high school, because I suffered from an eating disorder. When I finally decided I wanted to get healthy and educated about how to stay in shape, I went and got my personal training certificate. I started training other people in college, which really helped me get past my own issues, because I was able to help people in that way. Now, I’m totally capable of knowing how to take care of myself on my own.

Celebuzz: What exercises do you do to stay in shape?
GR:
I work so much that I don’t get the consistent time to be in the gym any longer. I do have a trainer that I work with, Ken Rawlins, and he’s amazing. I have him meet me at the house because my schedule is that crazy! He brings a bunch of equipment with him and we do everything from free weights and exercises on the bench to work with rubber bands and these things called gliders that I found. We’ve been using those a lot lately, which has been really fun. Basically, we do a lot of lunges and squats and pushups on a ball.

Celebuzz: What’s on your workout playlist?
GR:
 I definitely work out to music; it’s more motivating. But there are times that you don’t need it. I go on walks on the mornings that I’m up early. The dawn is so beautiful that you really don’t need music. Normally, though, I listen to a playlist of “ampy,” get-you-going songs. Lately, it’s been my own song “Unbreakable”; it’s really a great workout song! I didn’t even realize what a great workout song it was until I put it on my iPod; it really gets me going. Also, I absolutely love anything by Britney SpearsLady Gaga and Katy Perry.

————————————-

Celebuzz: What’s your guilty pleasure?
GR:
Alcohol will always be on my list. I’m really more of a social drinker and have a cocktail when I’m out on the town on a Friday or Saturday night with friends. And, if I feel like having a bite of dessert when I’m out, I will. I won’t do much more than that, because that’s when you end up eating the entire dessert. I don’t do well with that.

Celebuzz: Do you have any secrets for total body confidence when putting on a bikini?
GR:
First and foremost, get a spray tan; that’s the number-one top secret. It really helps to disguise cellulite. Also, little things like a really good moisturizer that makes you look shiny and pretty really helps, too.

Celebuzz: Do you have a secret habit that is part of your healthy lifestyle?
GR:
In the last three months, I’ve really been been upping my vitamin intake — MSM, Grapeseed Extract, things like that. I’m also trying this new product called Play Again, for healthy joints, because when I workout a lot they sometimes ache and hurt. I hate to swallow pills, let alone having to take them; but you really start to see your body change, so it’s worth it.

Ramona Singer Makes Peace With Heather Thomson, Dishes on LuAnn’s Shady Behavior and Says Aviva Drescher Verbally Abused Her

29 Aug

USmagazine.com:

St. Barths was beyond amazing! It’s always a treat to be able to leave NYC in January when it is so cold and ugly, especially when you get to land on this dream island!

I have been happily married for over twenty years and I must say that even I was looking forward to having a blast with just the girls. Sometimes you need that time with your girlfriends without children and husbands/significant others. Little did I know what I was getting into . . .

We really got off to a bang on our first night out — Le Ti was so much fun! As you all well know, I love dancing! After everything that has gone on between Heather and me, it looks like all we needed was a little dance?! Once Heather, Carole and I got on top of the tables to dance it was sealed. Heather and I reached an unspoken understanding with each other.

How many times did LuAnn say Thomas looks like Johnny Depp? Was it just me or was she obsessing a bit with the way he looked? I really don’t know why LuAnn would lie about having Thomas over to the home. And to say Italian people, not French?

LuAnn got so busted with her telephone conversation. I can’t believe she even said she would continue to lie to us girls! “He cannot say he was here last night, I told the girls it was a group.” I’m still a bit confused as to how she thought it would not get out. LuAnn does make up stories, as we all just saw with Thomas. Kind of reminds me of that bizarre story she was telling that I threatened her with her children . . . hmmm.

I was shocked that Reid was staying at our villa on this girls’ trip. That was never the plan. I was not the only one who felt this wasn’t going to be a positive change in plans. LuAnn even said, “The dynamics will change when Reid comes.” Remember that for next week’s episode!!!!

I’m off to Michigan tomorrow for three Ramona Pinot appearances! Check out the details at www.RamonaSinger.com, and while you’re at it, explore my all-new site a bit!
Til next time . . .

Tamra Barney Suffers Hernia, Thought She Was ‘Going To Die’

29 Aug
Ehhh….karma?:

“Real Housewives of Orange County” star TAMRA BARNEY had to call 911 after doubling over in pain from a hernia that severely affected her bowels.  “I thought I was going to die,” she told The ENQUIRER in an exclusive interview from an Orange County Hospital.

“For the past month or so, I thought what I had was maybe an ulcer, every once in a while I would get these excruciating pains but they would go away, on Monday night they didn’t.

“It was around 7pm Monday [August 27] Eddie was gone to a meeting and I was home alone sitting on the couch drinking a cup of coffee when a sharp pain hit me like a ton of bricks; at first I thought it would go away, but it didn’t.”

Tamra got so concerned, she sent out this tweet to her 350K plus followers: Tamra Barney @TamraBarney “S**t here we go again, think its time to see a doctor? Severe pain in upper stomach after drinking coffee. Ulcer maybe?”

Tamra elaborated to The ENQUIRER, “Within in minutes I was doubled over, it was the worst pain I’ve ever suffered in my life, it was 100 times more painful than childbirth.
“I could barely talk when I called 911… an ambulance came within minutes and rushed me to the hospital.
“At the hospital doctors first thought I had a perforated ulcer, but what they found after conducting some tests, was much more complex, a hernia the size of a dollar in my abdomen wall that my bowels were entering through.”
Her emergency surgery that began at 2AM lasted almost three hours.
Tamra told The ENQUIRER she is worried and still doesn’t know the prognosis, but is glad to know what has been causing her such pain for the past month.
Tamra, who was planning to leave with Eddie on a vacation, is thankful that her emergency happened while at home and not on vacation.
“Doctors told me that if I had waited much longer I could have lost half of my bowel or worse,”  Tamra added.

She hopes to be released from the hospital by her birthday on Sunday.

Caroline Manzo: I’m Not Bullying Teresa Giudice

28 Aug

USmagazine.com:

Love her or hate her, Caroline Manzo is speaking her personal truth when it comes to Real Housewives of New Jersey costar Teresa Giudice.

Airing their dirty laundry in a shocking, expletive-laden fight on Sunday’s episode, Manzo and Giudice — still at odds over Giudice’s reference to Manzo in her Fabulicious cookbook — spoke to Andy Cohen after the show on Bravo’s Watch What Happens Live Sunday night. (The foes chatted via separate taped segments about the nasty incident that happened a year ago in Napa Valley, Calif.)

“I only got involved when she turned around and said ‘I apologize for the cookbook,'” said Manzo, 51, who declared her frenemy to be a “sociopath” and a “fraud” during their wide-ranging spat that led to Giudice storming out and calling Manzo a “c–t.” “The apologies were always for the cameras, for the public reaction. I’m never going to accept it so [she should] shut up already. Just say to me ‘I was so angry about you and I was a bitch.'”

In her own interview segment with Cohen, Giudice, 40, brushed off Manzo’s insults. “Caroline thinks she’s better than everybody. She’s definitely not better than me,” Giudice said. “What she says to me doesn’t really bother me. Caroline has nothing on me. I don’t know what’s happening in her head. She’s a very angry person.”

As she and Giudice sever their friendship ties for good, Manzo told Cohen she’s anxious to put season 4 of Real Housewives to bed — and isn’t worried one bit about being labeled a villain.

“Understand one thing: I have never attacked her, never said anything that wasn’t in response to something she said to me. I do get agitated and I’m only human,” Manzo — who shares grown kids Albie, Christopher and Lauren with husband Albert — said. “If [viewers] think I’m a bully, that’s fine. I just want my husband and kids to love Caroline Manzo and I’m good. If I have to be the most hated woman in the country because of that moment, so be it. That’s my truth.”

Goodbye Beverly Hills, hello network show!

The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Adrienne Maloof is trying to branch out from the ladies of 90210 with her own reality show, and RadarOnline.com has exclusive details about the development plans for her new gig.

NBC is in talks with Adrienne and her family to put the show on their network, which is the parent of Bravo, the home of the hit Housewives shows, a source reveals.

“The show is in the works and it will focus on Adrienne and her brothers and the Maloof family businesses. The show is in the early planning stages but it will be a competition-style reality show based around family businesses,” the source says.

Adrienne and her plastic surgeon husband, Dr. Paul Nassif, split up just as they finished shooting the third season of their reality show, and she has found herself the target of her co-stars Lisa Vanderpump and Brandi Glanville‘s ire.

“The new show will not be a catty fight fest, but will focus on finding new businesses,” the source says.

“Everyone is very excited about the possible new show and the network believes in the Maloof brand of luxury, business, family and hard work ethics.”

Lisa Vanderpump Disses Prince Harry’s Penis

25 Aug

TMZ.com:

Prince Harry‘s package is so small … he shouldn’t be allowed to call himself a prince at all  — this according to British “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” star Lisa Vanderpump.

Lisa was out in Beverly Hills earlier today when we asked if she’s seen the pictures — and she must have been living under a rock the last 12 hours … because she hadn’t.

So our camera guy showed them to her on his phone — and Lisa replied, “I need a magnifying glass to see that! Hold on, let me get my glasses.”

Once she got a good look, Lisa handed the phone back in disbelief, saying, “That’s not a ROYAL penis!”

Oh, but it is.

Kelsey Grammer Tells Oprah He ‘Owed’ Camille Fame

25 Aug

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=my-HN67NUeg]

HuffPo.com:

More than a year after the divorce, Kelsey Grammer is still taking jabs at his ex-wife, former “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” star Camille Grammer.

In a preview of clip for Sunday night’s episode of “Oprah’s Next Chapter,” Grammer tells Oprah Winfrey he believes he “owed” Camille fame after Winfrey presses the “Boss” star on the circumstances of the split.

“You already knew your marriage was over, it had already gone on too long, according to you, because it was over when it started and it was a facade,” Winfrey says to Grammer. “But you lacked the courage to come home and say something.”

“Yeah, I did. And I did believe that I owed something to that person, that I owed fame,” Grammer says, refusing to use Camille’s name.

“She had given up so much to just endure this horrible life she had with me,” Grammer continues, sarcastically.

It’s not the first time the former “Frasier” star has claimed his ex-wife owes her celebrity to him. In October 2011, he told Australian morning show “Sunrise” that Camille’s reality TV career was his “parting gift” to her. “It was a very difficult marriage and a very difficult decade,” he said. “I thought, ‘So long, here’s a present for you.'”

The couple’s messy divorce was finalized in February 2011. Just two weeks later, he wed current wife Kayte Walsh, a flight attendent he admitted to starting an affair with six months before splitting with Camille. Walsh and Grammer welcomed their first child together, a daughter named Faith, in July 2012. 

Camille’s gotsa respond to this.
