In the new promo ads for the upcoming fifth season of Real Housewives of Atlanta, noticeably absent from the crew was a blond-wigged, potty-mouthed Kim Zolciak. But everything’s peachy down in Georgia because Kim’s getting her very own spin-off show!
TMZ reports that although Kim won’t be returning to the show permanently, she will appear on the upcoming season every now and then.
After filming the temporary spin-off series, Don’t Be Tardy for the Wedding, for Bravo earlier this year, Zolciak quickly became a fan favorite, prompting producers to give the reality star a permanent reality show of her own. Filming for the new series has already begun, TMZ reports.
The International Business Times reports that Kim and her NFL hubby Krory Biermann will star in the yet-to-be named reality show, as well as their newest baby Kash Kade.
The couple wed earlier this year after giving birth to their first son KJ, which stands for Kroy Jagger. Kim also has two older daughters from previous relationships, Ariana and Brielle.
On Thursday night’s episode of The Real Housewives of Miami, cast member Joanna Krupa definitely gave reality television fans their viewings worth with her drunken tirade at the 10th anniversary of her fiance Romain’s club Mynt.
After countless cocktails and a direct view of her sister Marta‘s cheating, deejaying ex-boyfriend, the fiery blonde stalked to Romain and delivered an outburst that dropped the jaws of her fellow Housewives.
Krupa addressed the incident on her blog, admitting that she “went a little overboard.”
“When I look back at the night of the Mynt’s 10-year anniversary, I am definitely not happy about the way I acted— especially letting the alcohol take over, instead of controlling myself. I was hurt by my sister when she said I never defend her to Romain, and that made me extra sensitive that evening, especially after drinking a lot of alcohol at Lisa’s beforehand… I guess I wanted to show Marta that I do love her more than anything, and that she is so important to me, and that I will do whatever it takes to defend her,” Krupa wrote. “However, I went a little overboard, and had a major meltdown and tantrum attack, haha!”
Krupa then moved on to her castmate Adriana, who was shown flirting with Romain at the event. Adriana told him he should date a brunette instead of a blonde.
“I feel bad for her fiancé, because why is she flirting with mine?” Krupa asked. “She wasn’t even wasted, so if I had to choose, I’d rather have a meltdown because I had too much to drink (while protecting my sister) than be sober and hit on other men and disrespect my fiancé because I am just so desperate for attention. Hopefully her man wakes up one day and realizes that she is just a big flirt. He should have more respect for himself.” Meow!
On next week’s episode, Krupa confronts Romain about a nasty cheating rumor and friendships are tested. We can’t wait! Catch it next Thursday on Bravo at 9 p.m. ET.

Briana Culberson‘s son couldn’t wait to meet his parents!
Real Housewives of Orange County star Vicki Gunvalson‘s daughter welcomed a baby boy September 28, three weeks ahead of schedule, Us Weekly can exclusively confirm.
“Troy William Culberson was born a healthy 7 lbs, 11 ounces at 7:53 a.m. this morning via emergency C-section,” a family rep says.
This is the first child for nurse Briana, 25, and her husband, Ryan, a U.S. soldier who fought in Afghanistan. The couple eloped in Las Vegas in October 2011.
The rep tells Us, “Briana and Ryan are overjoyed with their newest addition to their family and are eager and excited to begin their new lives together.”
This is also the first grandchild for Gunvalson, 50, also mom to Briana’s brother, Michael, 26.
The couple chose the middle name William to honor Wolfsmith’s late maternal grandfather. Ryan was by his wife’s side during the delivery; an excited and overwhelmed Gunvalson, meanwhile, “couldn’t stop crying.”
To be fair, Dina Manzo is the godmother to one of Teresa’s kids (and I’m sure there was absolutely no ulterior motive behind Teresa’s decision to choose Dina). But instead of laying low, not saying a thing and quietly supporting her goddaughter, she publicly goes and takes sides with Teresa against her own sister Caroline and then has the nerve to spout this nonsense? Dina’s either in serious denial or just plain stupid…or perhaps both:
Even though she’s not on The Real Housewives of New Jersey anymore, Dina Manzo is putting her two cents in regarding the Posche Fashion Show set up. Instead of agreeing with her family members Jacqueline Laurita and Caroline Manzo — who believe that Teresa Giudice intentionally set up Melissa Gorga — Dina is defending Tre!
Before the Season 4 finale aired on Sunday, Dina tweeted, “My relationship w/ her [Teresa] is based on our relationship w is pleasant, fun & supportive of each other, I never saw a malicious side to her EVER.”
“All I’ll say is I filmed my scene AFTER all this & I knew nothing except that everyone was against her…I watch with all of u,” she continued.
We know Dina and Teresa are very close, so we admire Dina for defending her friend, but it was a pretty bold move of her to go against all the housewives and stand by Tre.
Divorces can get very ugly, and Sonja Morgan was certainly struggling in the midst of hers on “The Real Housewives of New York City.” She broke down after a settlement meeting with her ex-husband, John — J.P. Morgan heir — didn’t go well at all.
“I came out of that meeting with nothing. And he’s not stepping up to the plate. He doesn’t care about me. He doesn’t care about our daughter,” she lamented. She then vowed to sue him.
But all is not as bleak as it seemed in this episode. Sonja appeared on “Watch What Happens: Live” after this episode aired and said of the situation, “We are talking now and we’re trying to work things out.” So maybe better are days ahead for Sonja and her daughter.
You’re not a Real Housewives family if you haven’t been taken to court!
Louie Khalil, the owner of the landscaping , exclusively told RadarOnline.com about the settlement the judge ordered Richard to pay.
“I don’t care about the money; I’m just glad the judge saw the truth,” Khalil said.
According to Louie, he was hired by the Wakiles to do the landscaping at their house and performed the services for a full year and was never paid, so he cut their service off in October 2011.
“I saw him and told him to pay the bills, we kept asking him to pay, we sent him the bill and when we would call him he would just say ‘f**king sue me’ and hang up on me,” he claimed.
“He would say to me ‘Who the f**k do you think you are? I’ll smash your face if I ever hear you say ask me for money again.’”
Louie said Richard was harassing him while he was working on other jobs in the neighborhood, and on June 8, 2012 “came to my truck while I was working, invading my private space. He took pictures of my license plate so I called the cops. They went to his house and told him not to take pictures of my license plate.”
He told RadarOnline.com it was after this incident that he decided to file the lawsuit and it worked out in his favor.
The judge ruled on September 24 that Richard was responsible for part of the bill and ordered him to pay $792.34 plus $22 in court fees. Louie said Richard cut them a check for an even $815 right after the judge ordered him to pay.
When Richard was spotted in the courthouse for the first hearing on September 19 by Tom Murro, he was evasive on Twitter about the reason he was there, writing: “I’m so afraid that you’ve exposed me!!! Shaking in my boots, or in my beach wear!!!”
Richard actually filed a counter lawsuit against Louie Khalil and the company, which the judge threw out in court on Monday.
Louie told RadarOnline.com that he’s sure he’ll see Richard again in the neighborhood and he’s ready for when he does.“If I see him I’m just going to smile at him when I see him. I don’t care. He can walk away,” he said.
Supermodel Joanna Krupa may be new to Bravo’s The Real Housewives of Miami, but she’s not going to be a wallflower.
On Thursday’s all-new Real Housewives of Miami, supermodel Krupa gets into a fight with Season 1 star Adriana De Moura, and the result isn’t pretty.
“I speak my mind. If someone gets on my nerves, I will let them have it,” Krupa told Celebuzz. “Adriana and I had a conflict relating to another girl on the show. I was trying to be a friend and defend her, but right away, Adriana got in my face, and maybe I said a few things that p—ed her off.”
What else does Krupa have to say about the first cat fight of the season?
“It became physical, which I’ve never done before in my life,” she said. “That’s unfortunate that it got so far. For the viewers, it will be fun, but for me, it wasn’t fun. I’m not proud of it, but you mix some alcohol and some crazy women in a room, and something’s going to happen.”
When she’s not fighting with her castmates, Krupa is juggling her career and her relationship with her fiance of five years, Romain Zago. For most Housewives, the pressure of reality TV puts a strain on their relationships with their significant others. So is Krupa worried about her and Zago’s future?
“That didn’t even cross my mind,” she said. “That was the least of my worries! … A lot of people that break up after reality shows, [the show] just sped up the breakup.” Krupa revealed that this season, viewers will see her and her beau go through many ups and downs.
“If he can’t stick with her through the show, then he can’t stick with her. Period,” added Krupa’s Real Housewives co-star Lea Black, who also sat down with Celebuzz to chat about Season 2.
According to Black, viewers will want to stick around until later in the season, where things heat up between Krupa and her man. “The problem with Romain is that he’s just so damn beautiful, you’ve got to forgive him for whatever he does,” Black explained.
The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Adrienne Maloof is “very happy” that a judge granted supervised visitation of her three sons to estranged husband Dr. Paul Nassif in court Wednesday morning, RadarOnline.com is exclusively .
“Adrienne doesn’t want Paul to have unmonitored visitation with their three sons because she is concerned about their well-being around their dad,” a source close to the situation tells Radar. “The judge allowed Paul to have monitored supervision with their three sons on September 29. Adrienne will ask for that to be the norm going forward at the restraining order hearing, which is scheduled for October 6. Adrienne was granted a temporary restraining order last week over allegations of emotional and physical abuse that Paul allegedly inflicted on his . Adrienne is very happy with the judge’s decision in court today and will do whatever the judge asks of her and will follow his orders to the letter.”
Nassif went to court Wednesday in an attempt to get his visitation rights re-instated after Maloof obtained a temporary restraining order against him last week, which prohibited him from having any contact with his estranged wife and three kids. The Department of Children and Family Services conducted an investigation into the abuse allegations.
Nassif told the judge “All of the allegations are false and the children are not being harmed. Children should have both in their lives.” Social workers found no evidence that Nassif physically or emotionally abused the boys.
The Beverly Hills plastic surgeon said he wants 50 percent custody of the boys, and the judge said those issues would be re-visited at the hearing on October 9 to determine if the temporary restraining order should be made permanent.
In the meantime, Nassif has been granted visitation rights for the next two Saturdays.
The fallout from Strippergate continues!
Teresa Giudice accused former friend Jacqueline Laurita of setting her up on Sunday’s Real Housewives of New Jersey finale and when the women reunite for the Bravo hit’s season 4 reunion, Laurita again confirms Giudice was indeed the one who started the rumor that her sister-in-law Melissa Gorga was once a stripper.
“When [Melissa and Joe Gorga] were originally coming on the show, I felt bad for Teresa because I know she didn’t want them on the show. She wanted me to call them out on everything,” Laurita — who had a major falling out with Giudice during season 4 — admits in a preview from Sunday’s part one of the reunion.
When Giudice alleges that Laurita would make nasty comments about the Gorgas when cameras weren’t around, Laurita flips. “You were telling me what to say and making me uncomfortable. I had other s–t going on in my life and you didn’t give a f–k!” she snaps. “All you cared about was exposing them. You wanted me to call out that Melissa was a stripper, you wanted me to call out [cousin] Kathy [Wakile], that she didn’t get a designer bag until she was 40, like that meant something.”
Giudice continues to maintain her innocence, but Laurita isn’t buying it. “You are a liar, you’re sick — you’re going to Hell!” she seethes in the clip above.
Insinuating that Gorga was once a stripper at a New Jersey gentlemen’s club when in fact she was a bartender, Giudice’s betrayal of her sister-in-law cuts especially deep for the Gorga family.
“If she admitted she set me up, I would hear her out,” Gorga tells the new issue of Us Weekly. “But if I forgave her, who’s to say she wouldn’t strike again? And who knows if it’s not going to be more desperate next time, with her planting crazier stories. Why should I trust her? I’m not going to take the chance of letting her hurt me. I’m officially done.”
One word: Ugh!
They’re all coming back for more drama!
Bravo released the new trailer for Season 3 of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills and it looks like the entire Season 2 cast will be making appearances on the show.
This time around, the reality show will focus on Adrienne Maloof, Brandi Glanville, Kim Richards, Kyle Richards, Lisa Vanderpump, Taylor Armstrong and new housewife Yolanda H. Foster.
Foster was born and raised in Papendrecht, Holland. She is a former model who has three children with ex-husband Mohamed Hadid, and five stepdaughters with husband David Foster.
Old cast member Camille Grammer will make occasional appearances (along with her new boyfriend), and so will newcomer Marisa Zanuck, who is a former coworker of Kyle Richards’ husband Mauricio. Zanuck is married to movie producer Dean Zanuch and they have two children together.

When it comes to sister-in-law Teresa Giudice, Melissa Gorga‘s guard is up — permanently.
Singer and mother of three Gorga, 33, opens up in the new issue of Us Weekly about the shocking final season four episodes of Real Housewives of New Jersey — in which Giudice, 40, plots with Kim DePaola to expose Gorga’s supposed stripper past at a Posche fashion show.
“Anyone with two eyes can see that it was a complete setup,” Gorga tells Us of Giudice’s behind-the-scenes maneuvering to suggest Gorga went topless at Lookers Gentlemen’s Club in Elizabeth, NJ — where Gorga worked as a bartender who kept her clothes on at all times in 2003. “Lookers was not even a strip club,” Gorga adds.
Although the ugly incident happened over a year ago, “Watching the episode brought back so many emotions,” the “I Just Wanna” singer says. “I was sick. It makes me want to stand in front of Teresa and scream at her. It makes my skin crawl.”
The duo have had numerous confrontations since then — including a “crazy” reunion — and Gorga says she’ll never trust Giudice again.
“If she admitted she set me up, I would hear her out. But if I forgave her, who’s to say she wouldn’t strike again? And who knows if it’s not going to be more desperate next time, with her planting crazier stories. Why should I trust her? I’m not going to take the chance of letting her hurt me,” Gorga vows. “I’m officially done.
Kim Richards hasn’t had the best of luck in love, but now the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star tells RumorFix exclusively that she’s finally ready for a “genuine relationship” and hopes to find a special man she can share her life with.
Richards, who has been in and out of rehab for alcohol abuse, tells us that — after working hard to get there — she’s at a good place with herself. “I’m at a point where I really love myself again; if I ever did [love myself] I don’t really know. I feel that I’m really just ready to love somebody.”
She continues, “I think it would just be really nice to love someone, to take care of them, feed them, work out with them, and cook together. If love came along for me, I’d be grateful. Because I’m at a point where I have enough love to share.”
But whatever happened to Kim’s short-lived romance with Ken Blumenfeld? That stock broker from Westlake, California whom she had many problems with — from Blumenfeld maintaining a Match.com profile while dating Kim to his secret DUI arrest. Kim’s answer surprised us, telling RumorFix, “I occasionally talk to Ken, and things are copasetic. We don’t have any ill feelings for each other—I’m there if he needs.
After many leaks to the press from Season 5 of “The Real Housewives of New York City,” producers have taken extraordinary measures to make sure details about the top-secret reunion show remain private.
“None of the cast members know the location of the taping,” a Bravo insider said. “They have been told cars will pick them up from their apartments early tomorrow morning and take them to the secret venue to get hair, makeup and dresses. Once they are on the set, no cellphones will be allowed and they will all be warned about the confidentiality agreement they all signed as part of their contract. All they know is the place will have an art deco theme.”
A few seasons ago, Bravo executive Andy Cohen told me that out of all the franchises, he believes it was the New York cast that leaked the most to the press. And even with a savvy new cast that includes media insider Carole Radziwil, the situation seems to have gotten worse.
“The network loves the cast tweeting and doing interviews, but certain story lines must be kept secret,” a cast member said. “Why would anyone tune in to watch the reunion shows if we know exactly what went down by the end of day Thursday?”
