‘The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills’ Suffering From Ratings Collapse

30 Nov

Ha! Add a no-good, classless, wench like Brandi Glanville to the mix and turn viewers off. Maybe now Bravo has finally learned their lesson: 

Viewers are continuing to flee from The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.

The November 25 episode of the Bravo franchise pulled in just 1,627,000 viewers.

That’s only half the number of viewers the warhorse of the Housewives series — The Real Housewives of Atlanta – pulls in.

“The show doesn’t have the same level of drama as it did with the original cast,” one production source told Radar, adding that newcomers to the cast haven’t been able to live up to the bitchiness bar set by the likes of Camille Grammer  and Taylor Armstrong.

Could this be the last season for RHOBH?

Kyle Richards’ Husband Mauricio Takes On Cheating Rumors: ‘I Can Do A Lie Detector Test Tomorrow’

27 Nov

RadarOnline.com:

Kyle Richards and her husband Mauricio Umansky fought off cheating rumors once again.

During Monday night’s episode of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, the couple were ownunited and continued to shoot down infidelity rumors during lunch with her co-star Joyce Giraud and her husband.

“When anyone tries to come between us, it actually makes us stronger,” Kyle said. “We know what we have.”

Her husband stood by her, calling out the fellow housewives for being mean girls.

“Let me tell you something. Any of these f**king girls can do a lie detector test with me tomorrow and no problem,” Mauricio said, adding that the lies splashed across the tabloids have made him “loose all faith in humanity.”

“I realized that as long as you’re in the spotlight, people are going to say bad things about you,” Kyle said in her confessional. “We choose to surround ourselves with people who know us inside and out. We’re not supposed to care, but we do. And it hurts.”

Later, Kim Richards arranged a circus school outing, which she thought would result in an afternoon of camaraderie among the women. But tempers quickly flared among the group.

During the outing, Brandi Glanville vented about Kyle, who reportedly told the paparazzi she was a “bully.”

“I feel like I had given her a heads up about stories written about her husband — as a girl’s girl, I gave her a heads up about it,” Brandi said.

“But then yesterday, I was getting chased down in Calabasas by the paparazzi saying Kyle Richards is calling me a bully,” she later told Kyle’s sister.

Kyle tried to defend her sister and shut down the catty behavior.

“The paparazzi make things up,” she said.

But Brandi and Yolanda didn’t seem amused with her diplomatic behavior.

Later, Kyle confronted Brandi and claimed she never called her a bully.

“I’m not going to apologize for something I didn’t do,” Kyle fired at a defensive Brandi.

Phaedra Parks Wants To Know What Really Happened Between Husband Apollo And Kenya Moore

27 Nov

Wetpaint.com:

Both Kenya Moore and Apollo Nida have finally laid all of their cards out on the table about what really happened between the two Real Housewives of Atlanta stars. As we saw on tonight’s all-new episode (November 24), there seems to be some confusion as to whether the two had an inappropriate interaction off-screen in L.A., and Apollo’s wife Phaedra Parks is ready to get to the bottom of it.

Kenya seems to have changed her story a bit since the Season 5 reunion, as she insisted to Kandi Burruss early on in the episode that the texts she exchanged with Apollo were not sexual at all. Kenya showed her said texts, and though Kandi did rightfully call her out for referring to Apollo as “babe” not cool, Kenya they appear to be fairly harmless. Hm.

Kandi then met up with Phaedra for a froyo date, where she relayed her conversation with Kenya. She explained that Kenya said she hadn’t seen Apollo in-person, but Phaedra knows that Apollo and Kenya saw each other at the Beverly Wilshire Hotel in L.A. 

We finally end the episode with what Andy Cohen recently referred to as “one of the most tense scenes that I’ve ever seen on the Atlanta Housewives”: Phaedra and Apollo’s “date from hell,” as Phaedra dubbed it.

“Kenya said that nothing happened in L.A., and that you were basically lying — that she never saw you,” Phaedra said to Apollo. 

Apollo then explained to Phaedra that he and Kenya had been at the same party in L.A. before he returned to his hotel room at the Beverly Wilshire. He said that she was also there, though he wasn’t sure whether she followed him or not. 

“And then she propositioned you, yes or no?” Phaedra straight out asked him.

“She didn’t just come at me and say ‘Hey Apollo, let’s f—,’” Apollo stated. “You know when a female is basically open. She wanted to have sex in L.A. I chose not to. I left and went to another hotel. Real simple.”

Camille Grammer’s Ex-Boyfriend Formally Charged Over Alleged Assault

26 Nov

ContactMusic.com:

The ex-boyfriend of former model and Tv personality Camille Grammer has been formally charged with assault following an alleged fight in a Texas hotel suite last month (Oct13).

Actor Kelsey Grammer’s ex-wife claims she became embroiled in a heated argument with Dimitri Charalambopoulos after he received an early-morning text and a phone call from a screaming woman.

The dispute reportedly turned violent, and Camille states she was left pleading for mercy after he allegedly pulled her hair and pushed her head against the bed.

She submitted photos of bruising to her arms and face to Houston police as they investigated the assault claim, and on Friday (22Nov13), prosecutors at the Harris County District Attorney’s Office filed a felony charge of assault of a family member and impeding breath against him.

Charalambopoulos, a former attorney-turned-fitness trainer, was not arrested, but appeared in court on Monday (25Nov13), when he posted bond of $5,000 (£3,330).

He has denied the charge and a statement from his lawyer Kirk Lechtenberger, released to AccessHollywood.com, reads: “Unfortunately, the Houston Police Department filed a case against Mr. Dimitri Charalambopoulos notwithstanding the fact that no offence ever happened. This action is not unexpected considering that, in this day and age, anyone can make up anything and get a charge filed. We look forward to going to trial as soon as possible and clearing this innocent man of this false allegation.”

Camille Grammer obtained a temporary restraining order against Charalambopoulos in a California court days after the alleged incident, but a hearing regarding the protective ban has been postponed until 10 December (13).

Joe Giudice Caught On Camera Having Cozy Coffee Date With Another Woman

26 Nov

RadarOnline.com:

How will he explain this?

In addition to her mounting legal woes, embattled Housewife Teresa Giudice will undoubtedly have serious questions for her husband Joe about his intimate rendezvous with ANOTHER woman at a restaurant more than 30 miles from their New Jersey home!

Real Housewives of New Jersey star Joe — who has been accused of cheating before — had a cozy coffee date with the mystery woman at Legends Diner in Secaucus on Friday, RadarOnline.com can reveal.

The unidentified woman, wearing a large hat and super sized sunglasses, was clearly attempting to hide her identity.

But the pair couldn’t escape one eagle-eyed restaurant goer who snapped a shot of them together on their cell phone — the woman’s face caught in the reflection of a mirror inside the eatery.

“It was DEFINITELY not Teresa,” the spy-witness told RadarOnline.com, in an exclusive interview.

“She was completely disguising herself with a hat and huge sunglasses that she wouldn’t take off inside. They were sitting over coffee and occasionally Joe would reach over and touch her hand while talking. They were there for a while.”

This isn’t the first time Radar has busted Joe having an intimate moment with a woman other than his long-standing wife.

In 2011, Joe and another woman were snapped at a T.G.I. Fridays in Clifton, N.J., a lengthy distance from the home he shares with Teresa and their four daughters.

Kim Zolciak Has Twins: A Little Boy & Girl

26 Nov

Hey, good for Troy and Kim. And whether or not you’re a Kim Zolciak (I’m not), let’s all hope the babies grow to lead healthy, responsible and productive lives. That being said if I were Kim and Troy I’d call this ‘a wrap’ as far as having more kids is concerned. I mean, these two obviously don’t have much in common besides sexual compatibility. But 4 kids in like 3 years is quite a lot to handle and what with the way things are going with the Biermann’s, even these guys would maybe raise an eyebrow. Seriously tho, the average NFL football player’s career span is like 6 years, Kroy Biermann is currently injured, they live in a huge, lavish home, kids are costly and need lots of attention and who knows how long fans of Kim will want to watch her life unfold on TV:

It’s a boy… and a girl!

Congrats to Real Housewives of Atlanta star Kim Zolciak and her husband—NFL player Kroy Biermann—on the newest addition to their always growing fam!

The couple became parents again after mom gave birth to a set of twins—a boy and a girl! This is the fifth and sixth child for Kim, 35, and the third and fourth for Kroy, 28.

The new parents confirmed their news on Instagram, with the picture above, which was posted with the message, “We are officially the ‘Biermann Bunch’ now!”

Aww, we could not be happier for the proud mom and dad on their growing family!

Kim has two daughter—Brielle, 16, and Ariana, 12,—from a previous relationship; she and Kroy tied the knot to the Atlanta Falcons defensive end on Nov. 11, 2011. The two are parents Kroy Jagger Biermann Jr. (also known as KJ), 2, and Kash, 1!

Sounds like a Biermann bunch, indeed! Congrats to the happy, growing family.

Lisa Vanderpump Says Her Family in England are “Not Supportive” of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills

24 Nov

EOnline.com:

Make yourself some sangria and enjoy.

Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Lisa Vanderpump stopped by the E! News set today to chat (and drink some of her LVP Sangria) with Catt Sadler and Giuliana Rancic about a number of different topics—including her “naughty” cast on Vanderpump Rules and her recent rift with costar and former bestie Brandi Glanville.

“I’m actually interested to see how it plays out myself, because I don’t quite understand what went down,” Lisa said about her feud with Glanville.

“This week I saw just a little glitch when she said, ‘Well I didn’t really have your back,’ because I was like, ‘Really, I’ve always had yours.’ And then I did chastise her at the table a little bit when she used the C-word because last week I was chastising her for using the F-word when she said, ‘Shut the f—k up.’ And I was like, ‘Noooo!'”

The former Dancing With the Stars contestant also explained that the cast are required to watch so that they can blog, and if there’s a moment when she wants to pick up the phone and confront a cast member about something they said or did, she said, “You’re kinda supposed to save that for the reunion.”

As if RHOBH wasn’t enough drama for the celeb, she also stars and produces her spinoff series Vanderpump Rules, which focuses on her young, hot and troublesome staff at SUR restaurant in West Hollywood.

“They are so naughty, I even see the footage and I’m like, ‘No, they didn’t do that! We could’ve cut that out.’ Because it’s ‘Vanderpump Rules,’ if it ever goes out to England, I’m not gonna be let back into the country,” she told E! News.

And although Vanderpump laughed when she said that, there’s (kind of) some truth to what she said.

“They’re not supportive,” she said of her relatives in England. “It’s a ‘reality show’ and that doesn’t quite fit in with their perception of what I should be doing with my real life. People in England don’t talk like that.”

Brandi Glanville Still Not Over Eddie Cibrian-LeAnn Rimes ‘Betrayal’: ‘I Still Battle With Depression And Trust Issues’

23 Nov

Here’s hoping Team Rimes wins the championship:

The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Brandi Glanville still hasn’t gotten over the fact that her ex-husband Eddie Cibrian cheated on her with his now-wife LeAnn Rimes, even though the affair happened over four years ago.

“Four and a half years after my betrayal, I still battle with depression and trust issues,” Glanville admitted in column she wrote forSoberBook.com. “I survived my heartbreak, but I will be dealing with the damage it caused for the rest of my life.”

Glanville believes that her children are the only ones who keep her on track.

“I have my good months and bad months,” she said. “If I didn’t have my children, I might be one of the many who never came out of the darkness. These two little men, Mason (10) and Jake (6) keep me grounded and in check.”

But Glanville is only sane when her kids around.

I share half custody of my boys,” she said. “This equates to me having a half and half split personality. By this, I mean when I have them and there is total chaos in my house, I am complete. My soul is happy.”

“Then the inevitable happens… they leave me,” Glanville continued. “My big, chaotic house is silent. I hear crickets chirping and that feeling of falling back into the darkness it took me so long to come out of hits me.”

When Glanville’s boys aren’t around, that’s when she gets wild!

“Here comes the other fifty percent of my personality: fun, single, party girl Brandi,” Glanville explained.

And Glanville isn’t thrilled by her other side, but she still accepts that this is who she is part of the time.

“I don’t always love her. Sometimes I barely even like her. She makes a ton of mistakes (just check the internet),” she said. “But, I have never claimed to be perfect and it’s my way of not sitting at home, alone, falling back into my dark place.”

At the end of the day, Glanville offered a piece of advice to people dealing with “problems, depression, or addictions” to just “take it one day at a time.”

“Don’t be so hard on yourself when you mess up because we all make mistakes,” she reasoned. “Learn to ask for help when you need it and know that the people that sit back and judge us, pretending to be perfect, are usually the most messed up of all.”

22 Nov

RadarOnline.com:

Caroline Manzo and her estranged sister Dina will have to bury the hatchet for one night – and not in each others backs — to celebrate the upcoming nuptials of the daughter and niece Lauren.

Though the Real Housewives of New Jersey sisters haven’t spoken in years, Caroline’s daughter has made the decision to add her aunt to the guest list, she confirmed to RadarOnline.com.

“It’s a sensitive topic, but at the end of the day, we’re still family,” Lauren said, in an exclusive interview.

“Of course, I’ll invite my Aunt Dina. I’m not sure if she will come, but she will definitely be invited.”

Despite the deep rift that has engulfed the Manzos, Dina has previously hinted that she was hopeful about reconciling with her sister –- off camera.

She said: “Fifteen minutes come and go. And I understand we may be stretching it here and there. But at the end of the day, after all that is done, we’re gonna see through it all. I love my family. I always will. There’s distance right now and we’ll fix that off camera.”

As Radar previously reported, Lauren got engaged to longtime boyfriend Vito Scalia on Nov. 12. when he presented her with a Yanina and Co. diamond sparkler.

“We both cried tears of pure joy,” she said.

“The ring is perfect, breathtaking. I love it,” Lauren gushed about the bling, which includes “a radiant center stone, with a halo of pave and rose gold diamonds.”

“I knew when I first met him that I would marry him!”

The pair hasbeen dating for over four years.

As for a televised wedding, Lauren hasn’t ruled it out.

“There’s always that possibility and I won’t say it’s out of the question,” she said.

One thing is certain – it will be a huge affair.

Lauren told Radar: “We have so many friends and family members that there won’t be any other size but big.”

Bethenny Frankel Clears the Air With LuAnn de Lesseps

21 Nov

http://www.kaltura.com/p/910221/sp/91022100/embedIframeJs/uiconf_id/11526802/partner_id/910221http://cdnapi.kaltura.com/index.php/kwidget/wid/1_qoiw2qn6/uiconf_id/11526802 EOnline.com:

LuAnn de Lesseps apparently didn’t get real enough for Bethenny Frankel on The Real Housewives of New York City—and that’s the reason they had issues, according to the ex-Housewife of the pair.

“When I’ve had other kind of falling-outs with people on television, it kind of it is what it is, I really meant it,” Frankel explained to de Lesseps during their recent sit-down, airing Thursday on Bethenny. “It’s what happened. With you, we met in the beginning and I remember us going out and we had a great time…I always thought you were really cool and your platform was ‘The Countess’ and you were writing a book on being appropriate and you had stuff going on in your personal life—and I had stuff going on in my personal life—so when we would be we would kind of have a certain dynamic.”

OK, so Bethenny thought LuAnn was amazeballs at first. What went wrong?

“Then we are on the camera,” Bethenny recalled, “and since your thing was how to be appropriate, I would always feel like, ‘Yeah, but what about some of that other stuff we talked about?’ I would always feel like we couldn’t have a really honest friendship on the show. Does that make any sense what I am saying?”

So Bethenny didn’t like that LuAnn wasn’t always a hot mess?

“Like, you were going through some difficult times personally,” the talk show host, who left RHONY in 2010, continued, “and I knew about that and we kind of went through some of that.

“And we couldn’t go through it on the show, but we together we went through a lot of my stuff on the show and things that I wasn’t doing that were appropriate, dating-wise, and I always felt I kind of wanted to say to you, ‘Well what about what you’re doing?’ But I couldn’t, because you have kids and it was a different story so I felt it wasn’t a level playing ground.”

“Just because you are doing a reality show doesn’t mean you have to lay out all your laundry,” LuAnn finally managed to interject.

“But I always did!” Bethenny insisted. “Different strokes.”

“Which is fine,” LuAnn added. “You didn’t have a family to protect and children to protect [at the time].”

“Exactly. I totally get it,” Bethenny agreed. “And it’s difficult for you because being the Countess and having etiquette be your platform…can be difficult.”

To which LuAnn replied, “Honey, good manners never goes out of style.”

Well, Bethenny forgives her anyway.
