Kenya Moore Claims ‘Kanye West Hit On Me Before Kim Kardashian’

31 Oct

Kimye, there was Kenya. Real Housewives of Atlanta star Kenya Moore is making new claims about a steamy encounter she had with Kanye West. But don’t worry Kim. Moore says it all happened long before he hooked up with his baby mama, Kim Kardashian

“Kanye likes beautiful women, curvy women…” Kenya revealed during Access Hollywood Live on Tuesday. 

“He was really sweet when I met him. He seemed very humble. I thought he was a great guy,” the 42-year-old former Miss USA 1993 continued, admitting that the encounter happened “a few years ago.” 

“We met in Beverly Hills. He walked over, he was very humble. He spoke to me. He was super nice,” she explained. 

But despite their undeniable chemistry, Moore says, “Of course, we didn’t date, because I was with someone. He was a very charming guy, I can say that. I was very charmed.” 

“Did he give you elevator eyes?” host Billy Bush asked, wondering if West had checked out her cleavage. 

“Well, he’s a guy,” a coy Moore answered, hinting, “he appreciates women.” 

Still, the Atlanta housewife stressed that the chart-topping rapper was respectful to her. 

As Radar previously reported, West proposed to Kardashian San Francisco’s AT&T Park for the socialite’s 33rd birthday.“It was just friendly, ‘Hey, I want you to hear some music.’ It was all above board,” she continued. “I’m very happy that he’s found love and that him and Kim are having a good relationship.”

Camille Grammer Hires 24/7 Bodyguards After Ex-Boyfriend’s Alleged Beatdown

31 Oct

Camille Grammer has hired round-the-clock security guards to guard her home in the wake of her domestic abuse ordeal, has learned. 

The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star, 45, reacted to the incident with her ex-boyfriend Dimitri Charalambopoulos by swiftly ramping up the protection at her Los Angeles-area home. 

In court documents filed in her successful request to obtain a restraining order against the Dallas-based bankruptcy attorney, the ex-wife of Frasier star Kelsey Grammar detailed her fears that she could be attacked again. 

“I am informed and believe that there are numerous firearms… at his disposal,” she wrote in the explosive filing. 

“Mr. Charalambopoulos placed me in mortal apprehension, fearing that he would follow through with his threats to bash in my skull and to knock me unconscious. In so weak a state and faced with such a vitriolic and prolonged physical attack, any reasonable person would share that fear. 

“Furthermore, by and through his actions, Mr. Charalambopoulos did molest, attack, strike, threaten, and batter me. He disturbed my peace.” 

The single mother-of-two added, “I wake up at least twice per night with visions of his face as he was attacking me. I continue to fear for my safety and for the safety of my children, who had grown to trust Mr. Charalambopoulos during the course of my relationship with him.” 

The reality star has already been spotted in Malibu, Calif., with a series of bodyguards, according to multiple eyewitness accounts. 

“Security has been significantly increased at her home and Camille will keep the security detail in place for the foreseeable future. She isn’t taking any chances.”“As soon as Camille returned from Houston, she hired the bodyguards,” a source said. 

Included in Grammer’s request for the restraining order against her boyfriend of two years were nine black and white photos that were submitted to the Houston Police Department, showing what she has alleged to be the aftermath of Charalambopoulos’ attack — including her smashed iPhone next to clumps of hair he had pulled right from her head. 

A hearing on November 19 will determine if the restraining order will be made permanent.

HLN Host Nancy Grace Predicts That Teresa and Joe Giudice Will Be Going To Jail

30 Oct

Teresa and Joe Giudice have not been found guilty yet in a court of law but according to Nancy Grace they are “going down” for their tax fraud and evasion charges.

The acid-tongue HLN host appeared on Watch What Happens Live Monday night where she answered a caller’s question about whether or not the Real Housewives of New Jersey stars would be going to jail.

“Yes, yes, yes, yes,” the former prosecutor announced and said she believes the charges are legitimate.

“I think that they are founded, sadly for the franchise.”

The Giudices have been charged with 39 counts of tax evasion and fraud and are facing 50 years behind bars, and Nancy said she doesn’t see them avoiding jail time.

“I think they were in it together and you know what? You can get away with shoplifting, maybe stealing a car but don’t mess with the feds when it comes to money. Never mess with the tax man. Never mess with the feds alright? They have no mercy.

“I predict they’re going down,” she told Andy Cohen and explained why she believes they’ll end up incarcerated.

“Much as Martha Stewart was used I think they will be used as an example to other people.”

Andy tried to defend Teresa, but Nancy quickly dismissed him.

“She told me she absolutely had no idea,” the WWHL host pleaded on Teresa’s behalf.

“Did she sign her name on those documents?” Nancy asked him and he replied “Yes,” but when she asked “Did they get money? From loans? Bank loans etc. from signing those documents?” he pled the fifth.

Ramona Singer, Husband Mario Enjoy “Family Time” Together After Cheating Scandal

30 Oct

Sticking together! After denying reports of a cheating scandal earlier this month, Ramona Singer and husband Mario Singer showed a united front over the weekend while visiting daughter Avery at Emory University in Atlanta. The Real Housewives of New York City star, 56, shared photos of their trip and special “family time” on Twitter.

“On our way to Atlanta visiting Avery for parents weekend. We brought a surprise for her, Coco!!” Ramona captioned a selfie with Mario, 60, and their dog Coco on Thursday, Oct. 24.
On Saturday, she shared a group photo of Avery reuniting with family and wrote, “Loving our time with @averysinger. Mario even brought Coco as a surprise for her #4specialday #familytime.”

“This has been such a special weekend,” she tweeted the following day. “Enjoying our last few hours before heading back to NYC.” Before getting their flight home, Ramona shared one last photo of the threesome posing together with the caption, “Such a special family weekend with @averysinger and Mario in Atlanta. We miss her.”

Earlier this month, The New York Post’s Page Six alleged that Mario had had an affair and impregnated a young New York socialite. Ramona denied the claims to Hollywood Life that same day, saying, “It’s not true.”

The spouses of 27 years seem to be doing well despite the scandal. Ramona tweeted on Oct. 28, “Mario and I are matching this #Halloween! Guess what we will be . . . Hint: we’ll be wearing masks.”

Camille Grammer Claims Boyfriend Dimitri Charalambopoulos Bruised and Battered Her, Wins Restraining Order

30 Oct

Camille Grammer just got a restraining order against her boyfriend, claiming he brutalized and terrorized her in a hotel room, leaving her bruised and battered. 

In her declaration, filed by attorney Larry Stein and obtained by TMZ, Camille claims on October 16, she was in a Houston hotel room with boyfriend Dimitri Charalambopoulos … recovering from cancer surgery just days before. 

At 1:30 AM Camille says a woman started texting Dimitri and ended up calling him and screaming. 

The phone call triggered an argument between Camille and Dimitri.  She claims at that point he grabbed her by the hair, twisted it around his hand and repeatedly pulled her head into the bed and its headboard.  She says he pulled out clumps of her hair in the process. 

Camille says she tried to call for help, but Dimitri smashed her iPhone. 

But it didn’t end there.  Camille claims Dimitri “squeezed my nose between his finger and pushed upward forcefully, covering my mouth in an attempt to silence me to prevent me from breathing.” 

Camille also claims Dimitri wrestled her on the hotel bed, “repeatedly slamming my head and face into the furniture and completely immobilizing me.”  She claims he said, “I wanna smash your head in.  I’ll give you a reason to call the cops.”

Camille says the abuse went on for 40 minutes to an hour as she feared for her life and begged him to stop. 

She says as Dimitri was about to leave he said he would knock her out if she moved from the bed. 

Camille, who claims she felt Dimitri would kill her, ended up bruised and battered. 

A judge just granted a temporary restraining order … ordering Dimitri to stay 100 yards from Camille and her 2 kids.

Report Claims Dina Manzo Rejoined New Jersey Housewives Because She Wants Financial Independence From ‘Beholden’ Cheating Husband

29 Oct

I still don’t believe Dina is coming back to RHONJ, will wait till Bravo officially announces next season’s lineup:

Dina Manzo has signed on for season six of The Real Housewives of New Jersey and has uncovered the secret reason why she opted to return to the drama zone.

According to a source close to the RJONJ alumn, she was faxed with a vexed choice: either go back to Real Housewives to make her own money and become financial independent, or stay married to her cheating husband Tommy Manzo who still financially supports her.

Dina signed because she had little choice,” the source tells

“Here’s the thing, she wants to get a divorce from Tommy. They have a pre-nup that’s the size of a frigging phone book. If she divorces, she isn’t getting anything. She walks away with no house, nothing — so it’s either sign back with Bravo or you stay with the devil.”

Dina wants to divorce Tommy — who she married in 2005 and then separated from in the fall of 2012 — because of his continuous infidelities.

Despite planning their nuptials in front of VH1 cameras for the reality show, My Big Fat Fabulous Wedding, the pair’s romance has been anything but a fairytale.

Dina has openly admitted that Tommy cheated on her multiple times during their courtship.

“She’s caught him a number of times. It is disgusting,” said the source.

Once things take off again with RHONJ, the source suggested it wouldn’t be long until Dina officially files for divorce.

“That’s what I think,” the source says. “I think that’s one of the reasons she wants to do this and I don’t f****ing blame her. I would to do it.

“I’m proud that she would do something, even something she doesn’t like, to not be in a loveless marriage,” the source added. “Who wants that? I would rather [join].”

And Dina knows that it’s not going to be an easy ride since she has already been a cast member in the past.

“Housewives is an ugly job [and] is as rough as you get,” the source told Radar. “They’re ruthless. She is going into the lion’s den. There’s no question. Dina’s got some skeletons and she knows it.

“But she [had] to make a choice… either she stays with a cheating husband or she does the show… so she signed.”

Kyle Richards Denies “Blind Sighted” Cheating Rumors, Talks New Season of RHOBH

29 Oct

Kyle Richards warns don’t believe everything you read.

Richards, 44, says rumors that her husband Mauricio Umansky cheated on her or flirted with another woman are all “part of the snowball out-of-control thing.”

Telling PEOPLE that the twosome was “blind sighted” by the reports – which are highly touched upon in the trailer for season 4 of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills – Richards says, “My husband and I both were [worked up about it]. We were literally like, ‘What?’ ”

After taking photos with her arm around her hubby at the show’s Hollywood premiere party on Wednesday night, Richards said, “I don’t think anything is perfect in life, but [what we have] is perfect for us. I could not love my husband more. I mean I really love him with all my heart and soul, and he loves me. He’s an amazing husband, he’s an amazing father, he’s an amazing human being.” 

Added the reality star, “He did not deserve to be sucked into this, and he didn’t sign up for this spotlight. I did.”


Richards also provided an update on where she currently stands with some of her castmates.

“Some are really cool and some not as much,” she said of the new Housewives: self-proclaimed witch, Carlton Gebbia, and actress Joyce Giraud.

“We’re very different. I think some were open-minded and nice and some were very closed-minded and very negative energy to me.”

Although she didn’t explicitly state which new girl she feuded with, when asked if anyone tried to cast a spell on her, she said with a laugh, “That’s what I’m talking about!”

As for her former BFF Lisa Vanderpump, Richards would only say teasingly, “We have our moments. We’ve had difficulties. We’ve had our issues and that’s addressed this season.”

Acknowledging her relationship with cast mate Brandi Glanville, with whom she has formerly feuded, Richards told reporters, “We’re in a good place. People are like, ‘Ooh, they’re best friends.’ We’re in a much better place than we were, obviously, but it can’t get any worse than it was.”

And a former Housewife she’s still totally fond of? Recently engaged Taylor Armstrong.

“I’m very happy for her,” Richards said of Armstrong, who is planning to wed John Bluher. “He’s a really nice guy. He really cares about [Taylor’s daughter] Kennedy. They seem very happy and she seems at ease.”

Porn Star Farrah Abraham Blasts ‘Rude, Degrading’ Bethenny Frankel After Talk-Show Appearance

29 Oct

You know things are really going bad for you when you dissed by a porno star:

It’s a reality television smack down.

Ex-Teen Mom turned porn star Farrah Abraham has come to to rage against Bethenny Frankel after she filmed a contentious appearance on the one-time Real Housewives of New York star’s struggling talk show Bethenny — set to air Monday.

During the interview, both Frankel and her audience had a lot of tough questions for the controversial single mother who was forced to defend her parenting skills and some of the decisions she has made, including waxing her daughter Sophia‘s unibrow when she was just three years of age.

According to Abraham, 22, it’s not what she signed up when she agreed to appear on the nationally syndicated chat-fest.

“Before going on the show, I was told that it would be a positive and inspirational talk for mothers and business women,” the star of Backdoor Teen Mom, an adult film, told Radar in an exclusive interview.

“But as soon as I met Bethenny, it turned into a judgmental zone. She did not like how I valued my daughter’s opinion and care so much about her that I allow her to have her own voice.

“Then, she brought up very old misconstrued tabloid topics like my daughter’s unibrow and had judgmental women who were in the audience act disrespectful towards me and twist my opinion — as a mother, I care about my daughter’s hygiene — to suggest Sophia would not be beautiful, even if she had a unibrow.
“It was rude and I felt Bethenny siding with these women and their untrue statements.”

Abraham, who has also launched her own sex toy line, described Frankel as “degrading to women” and “hating” on their gender.

“During the show, she brought up my sex toy line… and tried to encourage the audience to not buy my line because ‘I’m a Teen Mom and that’s all I will ever be,’” added Abraham.

“This was very rude as my life has moved on from all of this, plus, it made no sense at all being the first release of the sex toys are for men not women. Perhaps her ex-husband Jason will be purchasing my sex toys… not women like Bethenny.”

Joanna Krupa Blames Lisa Hochstein’s Fertility Struggles on Alleged Partying

28 Oct

The Real Housewives of Miami ladies seemed relatively tame in comparison to other casts—right up until their explosive reunion was filmed last week. 

In fact, two sources tell E! News exclusively that things took a turn for the worse between former BFFs Joanna Krupa and Lisa Hochstein. At one point, Joanna alleged that Lisa’s hard partying could’ve even played a role in her in struggles to start a family. Bravo had no comment on what happened during the Oct. 18 taping. 

There have even been rumors that Lisa is considering taking legal action in response to Joanna’s claims, although E! News has not independently confirmed these reports. 

Former Real Housewives of Miami star Ana Quincoces seemed to allude to some legal strife, however, when she took to Twitter on Oct. 18 (when the reunion episode was filmed), writing, “Legal advice of the day: Reality ‘stars’ who threaten w/ defamation suits better make sure they r squeaky clean because discovery is a bitch.” 

Joanna tweeted “Brutal” after the show’s taping, and the following day, Lisa seemingly weighed in on the drama as well, writing, “The craziness is over. Time to get back to my real life and focus on friends and family I love.” 

Fair enough. Make sure to tune in Monday, Oct. 28, at 10 p.m. for a new episode of Real Housewives of Miami.

Andy Cohen Reveals Casting Secrets, Including Who He Wants To Rehire

28 Oct

Real Housewives come and go, but the man behind the franchise, Bravo boss Andy Cohen, has seen it all during his years running the many iterations of the series. Now, for the first time ever, Cohen dished on some juicy casting secrets during a video on his blog — including who he’s dying to get back on the air! 

“I always wanted to bring [The Real Housewife of Orange CountyLauri Waring-Peterson back, but Lauri did not want to come back,” Cohen revealed in the latest installment of his @sk Andy videos. (She did eventually return,but only as a part-time member.) 

Generally, Cohen said, he prefers not to have cast members leave in the first place. “Typically,” he explained, “I’m at the forefront of trying to woo formers back to the show.”As for other axed Housewives, such as RHONJ star Danielle Staub, who are constantly rumored to be getting a second chance on the show, Cohen says he relies on his staff to act as a barometer. “If it’s a terrible idea,” he revealed, “people will say to me, ‘It’s a terrible idea.’” 

Generally, Cohen said, he prefers not to have cast members leave in the first place. “Typically,” he explained, “I’m at the forefront of trying to woo formers back to the show.” 

And for all those hoping to get on the show themselves, Cohen did offer some insight into how the casting process goes down. “I am involved in all of it,” he confirmed. “We have a team … we work with the production company to go over the submissions for Housewives.

Did Kandi Burruss Elope With Fiance Todd Tucker?

28 Oct

Did Real Housewives of Atlanta star Kandi Burruss get married?

The singer-songwriter posted several pictures of herself on the beach in Cancun, Mexico, including one where she was standing next to chairs that looked like they were decorated for a wedding, causing many to believe she’d tied the knot with fiance Todd Tucker.

According to reality-TV blog Tamara Tattles, Kandi did indeed get hitched while in Mexico – and all her co-stars, including newlywed NeNe Leakes, were there! The blog reports that the wedding was filmed and will be on the next season of Real Housewives, which may be why Kandi has to keep mum about what happened.

The 37-year-old, who won a Grammy for writing TLC’s hit “No Scrubs,” has finally found luck in love. Her former fiance AJ Jewell died tragically in 2009, and since then Kandi focused on being a mom to her daughter Riley.

However, sparks flew when she met Todd, a TV producer who had worked for Bravo. Eventually, Todd gave up his work on the network so that he and Kandi could be together and moved into her Atlanta home.

The two reportedly said their “I do”s at the El Dorado Royale Riviera Maya resort.

Bethenny Frankel’s Talk Show Still Flopping: ‘Bethenny’ Slips In Ratings To #14

26 Oct

Bethenny Frankel‘s daytime talk show continues to slip in the ratings, and has learned the former Real Housewives of New York City star’s show has dropped to number 14 — out of just 18. 

According to the rating numbers ending the week of Oct. 13, Bethenny is holding steady at number 2 in terms of talk show newcomers (behind Queen Latifah), but in overall household rankings she’s only bringing slightly more viewers than ArsenioThe Test and Trisha which are tied for number 16, andThe Better Show. 

Bethenny showed no changes in their viewership from the week before — neither losing nor gaining viewers — and this will likely spell trouble for the struggling talk show. 

As Radar previously reported, Frankel’s talk show boss, Ellen DeGeneres, even appeared on her show (via satellite) in an attempt to help out the ratings-starved talk show. 

But Frankel blames a poor showing during her first season on a lack of A-list guests — which DeGeneres promised her. 

“[Frankel] is absolutely peeved that she has been unable to get a big name celebrity to come on. Frankel was told numerous times by DeGeneres before the show premiered that she would absolutely help her in getting all of the big names in show business,” a source close to the situation told Radar. 

“During Bethenny’s trial run, DeGeneres pulled some strings and got Justin Bieber to come on. DeGeneres’ former booker is now working for Bethenny but he’s been unable to get Sandra Bullock,Gwyneth Paltrow or Miley Cyrus.” 

In fact, Frankel couldn’t even get her old Bravo co-stars to appear on her show!
Jill Zarin and Alex McCord were both offered an insulting $400 to appear on the show and rejected the pitiful plea.

Brandi Glanville Calls Joyce Giraud A ‘Narcissistic B**ch!’ And Dishes On Her Fallout With Lisa Vanderpump

25 Oct

Brandi Glanville didn’t hold back (as usual) at the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills premiere party on Wednesday night, calling new cast member Joyce Giraud a “narcissistic b*tch” and reveals that former BFF Lisa Vanderpump was “using me,” as was first to report.

“It’s such a shakeup, all the friendships change and turn,” Glanville told Extra of the new cast members Giraud and Carlton Gebbia.

Kyle [Richards] and Carlton hate each other, and I like them both. It’s a problem. But Kyle likes Joyce, and I don’t like Joyce. She’s a narcissistic b*tch!”

And while Glanville and Vanderpump have both admitted they’re not currently on speaking terms, neither have yet to reveal the exact reason.

“It really just comes down to, was she using me this whole time to get ahead in something else?” Glanville, 40, told Extra.

“Some things that I found out that were really disappointing, and when the cards were down for me, she wasn’t really there.”

As Radar exclusively revealed, the initial confrontation between Glanville and Vanderpump was during an August trip to Puerto Rico and it was all caught on camera by Bravo.

But Glanville concedes she’d like to have her friendship with Vanderpump rekindled, telling Extra, “It’s actually super sad. I just hope that we can reconcile at some point.

“I miss her and I love her. I just want to make sure our friendship is really real, and I’m not just a pawn in some sort of bigger deal.”

Alex McCord Ridicules Jill Zarin’s Claims that Ramona Singer’s Husband, Mario Made a Series of Advances Towards Her

25 Oct]

Former The Real Housewives of New York City star Alex McCord claims Jill Zarin is lying about co-star Ramona Singer‘s husband trying to hit on her.

And McCord, who appeared on seasons 1-4 of RHONYC, implies it’s another example of real housewives fakery in which producers try to pump up the drama for ratings.

In the latest reality TV shocker, ex-RHONYC star Zarin told In Touch magazine that Ramona’s husband, Mario Singer, 60, made a series of advances towards her.

“I don’t buy it for a red hot minute,” McCord says.

“Having known the Singers for six years, Mario is a flirt but all talk and no action!

“He might flirt with a housewife; he might yell at a housewife. He’s not going to sleep with a housewife — except Ramona.”

She adds of her former co-star Zarin, who also appeared on RHONYC seasons 1-4, “I think Jill is up to her old shenanagins, trying to keep her name in magazines and feeding her irrational hatred of Ramona. Why do this? I’m shaking my head.”

But McCord also suspects housewives’ producers are behind it!

“For years, reality producers are trying to make Mario a Lothario, just like any time you saw ever saw Ramona sip a drink or Kelly roll her eyes or me turn red–any time Mario’s attention was distracted, the producers showed it,” she says.

“But if all they’ve got is edited clips, they’ve got nothing. If all they’ve got is him flirting with ladies at parties, they’ve got nothing!

“I’ve flirted with him! It’s all in good fun. It doesn’t mean you’re actually doing anything.”
