Kenya Moore Denies That She’s Dating Kordell Stewart

31 Aug

MadameNoire.com:

Speaking of rumors that came completely out of left field, it appears that there has also been talk of a secret romance between Kenya Moore and Kordell Stewart.

The former pageant queen recently took to Twitter to shut down the whispers—not that we’re really sure people were believing them in the first place.

KENYA MOORE         @KenyaMoore

Me and Kordell Stewart? NEVER…

As it turns out, the rumors began with a report published to MTO, which claimed that the two hit it off at the opening of Peter and Kordell’s new sports bar Sports One. Although there were plenty of instances where Kenya showed a little too much interest in Porsha’s marriage and divorce from Kordell, we never thought that she was interested in him romantically. If anything, her interest in Porsha’s misery was more than likely fueled by her strong dislike for her.

Update 2:20 p.m.: Kordell has also responded to rumors that he’s seeing Kenya Moore.
“There is a lady who I am very interested in,” Kordell told “however, it is not Kenya Moore.”

Taylor Armstrong’s Former Father-in-Law Believes Son Russell Was Murdered

30 Aug

TMZ.com:

Former “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” star Russell Armstrong‘s dad thinks his son’s death in 2011 wasn’t a suicide — he believes it was murder, and he claims Taylor Armstrong won’t help him prove it.

According to court docs obtained by TMZ … Louie Armstrong is asking the court to force the L.A. County Coroner’s office to fork over Russell’s autopsy pics, which he plans to have checked out by his own forensic specialist.

As we previously reported … Russell’s family hired a private detective after his suicide in 2011 — because they were convinced he was killed.

Armstrong seems to think Taylor would have better luck obtaining the photos, since she was Russell’s next of kin at the time of his death. In the docs, he says she refuses to assist his efforts.

We reached out to Taylor. So far, no word back.

Adrienne Maloof Appeals to Thief to Return ‘Priceless’ Diamond Necklace Taken From Her Beverly Hills Home

29 Aug

TMZ.com:

Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” star Adrienne Maloof says she was robbed of a priceless necklace, but she’s hoping the thief is a kind-hearted bandit who will someday return it.

We saw Maloof at Berri’s in L.A. and she told us about a diamond encrusted necklace that was stolen from her house a while back … possibly during a party at her Bev Hills mansion.

Maloof tells us the diamonds alone are worth more than $10K — but that’s NOT the reason she wants it back.

Tamra Barney Apologizes To Alexis Bellino, But Alexis Doesn’t Believe It’s Sincere

29 Aug

RumorFix.com:

Tamra Judge had an epiphany on The Real Housewives of Orange County last week after she was confronted by most of her co-stars during dinner in Bali.

And, because of it she apologized to former cast member Alexis Bellino. Now, only, RumorFix has Alexis’ reaction.

Tamra said the attack by the women reminded her of a trip she, Alexis and other other girls took to Costa Rica where Alexis was called fake and a show off.

At that time, Alexis left the table and was crying in her room. “I want to publicly apologize to Alexis for being any part of that night,” Tamra wrote. “I had no idea how bad it hurt to have so many people coming at you like that while being so far from home. But now I do and have learned so much. Like that saying goes — ‘karma is a bitch!’

In a statement to RumorFix,  Alexis says, “Thank you for your apology, Tamra. I forgave you long ago. Next time maybe pick up the phone instead of doing it publicly, which feels more for attention than sincerity.”

Jacqueline Laurita Doesn’t Believe Victoria Gotti’s Story About Rino Aprea Cheating On Wife Teresa

28 Aug

Inquisitr.com:

Jacqueline Laurita may have left The Real Housewives of New Jersey because the show became too much for her. Laurita was heartbroken when her friendship with Teresa Giudice started crumbling. Laurita was upset because Giudice wasn’t open about her legal struggles and wasn’t telling her friends about the fraud charges.

Laurita decided to focus on Caroline Manzo’s family instead, as she has been filming a few episodes of Manzo’d With Children, which will air this fall on Bravo. However, it sounds like Laurita has been watching this season of The Real Housewives of New Jersey, because she knew everything about Victoria Gotti’s story that Rino had cheated on his wife.

According to a new RumorFix report, Jacqueline Laurita may have left the show, but she has no problem sharing her opinion about this rumor. And given her experience with the show, Jacqueline doesn’t think that the rumor is true.

Teresa Aprea and her husband, Rino, had been married, divorced, then remarried. Gotti revealed that Rino had told him that he had slept with Teresa’s mother, which led to their first divorce. Teresa’s mother, Santa Napolitano, hasn’t issued a statement since the episode aired.

“It’s unfortunate that people, especially when you are not castmates, including Victoria Gotti, purposely come on to Real Housewives of New Jersey just to start horrible rumors, especially about somebody’s mother and husband/father on national TV,” Jacqueline Laurita has said about the story.

“It seemed all too familiarly set up. Maybe someone felt threatened by Teresa and her family’s presence on the show and wanted to take them down a peg. I don’t know. I just don’t understand,” Jacqueline Laurita added.

Plus, Gotti claims that she is friends with Rino, but she was eager to share this rumor with the world, even though Rino had remarried Teresa. But it does seem odd that such a rumor would come up at this point in time. Many have assumed that Victoria was just trying to get back on television.

Heather Dubrow Speaks On Rumors She’s Leaving “Real Housewives of Orange County”

28 Aug

LALATE.com:

Is Heather Dubrow leaving Real Housewives of Orange County after tonight’s reunion? Heather Dubrow implies to RHOC fans that this might be her final season. Generally, Housewives who exit the show often don’t share final remarks to viewers in their BravoTV.com blog. But this month, Heather implies that this might her final season. 

When Heather Dubrow started Real Housewives of Orange County, she had taken a break from acting after a series of major TV roles. During Heather’s first RHOC season, Alexis Bellino wrongly claimed that Heather wasn’t an “actress like Angelina Jolie”. But as LALATE first reported when Dubrow signed onto RHOC several years, Heather was (and still is) a major TV actress. She was not credited back then under her married name. Dubrow progressively added more credits to her acting resume in recent years. And now, from having less than roughly twenty thousand Twitter followers upon joining Bravo, Heather has become one of the most recognized BravoTV personalities. 

 So is Heather leaving RHOC? She tell news this month “No one is perfect, certainly not us. This show is small glimpses of our lives. You as the audience are privy to what’s going on in everyone’s world . We are not and sometimes we act and react differently than you’d expect because we didn’t have that knowledge. There were also many situations this season that became such a big game of telephone. It was hard to keep track.” 

Heather was deeply troubled with the final dinner of the season. “Terry and I have been together for almost 18 years and I have never seen him speak to another person as he did to David at Vicki’s party. SO not like him. All I can say is Terry never heard David OR Eddie yell out lewd things to me at the hoedown. We were told repeatedly by a very reliable (or so we thought) source about what David had said and they made it sound VERY bad. That was what Terry was reacting to.” 

For now, Heather thanks BravoTV fans for allowing her and Terry to come into their homes for several seasons. “I don’t know what my future is with Housewives show but I am very grateful for all of the opportunities it’s presented to me and my family. I hope you have enjoyed getting to know us over the past three years and realize we are not defined by moment or a season, but by how we live our day-to-day lives, how we love our family, and how we cherish our friends”.

Phaedra Parks’ Husband Apollo Nida Ordered To Go To Prison….Now

28 Aug

RadarOnline.com:

It’s time! Just weeks after Apollo Nida was sentenced to eight years in prison for his fraud case, RadarOnline.com has exclusively learned that the Real Housewives of Atlanta star has been ordered to report to federal prison on September 10.

According to court documents obtained by Radar, Phaedra Parks’ husband must surrender himself at the FMC Lexington prison in Lexington, Kentucky, on September 10 at noon.

Though he originally faced up to 30 years in prison, Nida was sentenced to just eight years for fraud and identity theft back in July. He also must pay nearly $2 million in restitution.

According to a written affidavit, Nida created fake companies, enabling him to access databases to find individuals to rip off. He opened fake bank accounts under those real names and funneled stolen U.S.

Treasury checks and auto loan proceeds into those accounts.

He also allegedly opened a fake auto dealership and applied for auto loans in the names of stolen identities.

Nida was first named in connection with the crimes in January. After multiple closed-door meetings with prosecutors, he entered a guilty plea in May.

This is not his first time behind bars: He previously served six years for a car theft scheme.

Dina Manzo on Divorce: ‘It’s A Very Hard Subject For Me To Talk About’

27 Aug

Inquistr.com:

According to a new Bravo report, The Real Housewives of New Jersey star Dina Manzo is now sharing her divorce struggles on the show. Dina sat down with divorce attorney Vikki Ziegler and explained that she wasn’t necessarily ready to take it further and push for a full divorce.

Dina Manzo adds that she has known Ziegler for years, as they went to high school together. So, it isn’t surprising that Manzo is so open with Vikki about her struggles. Dina revealed that even though they had been separated for a year, she wasn’t ready to draw up the divorce papers and sign them.

“I love that I can turn to her for advice on my separation; I know she’ll always have my best interest at heart,” she reveals, adding, “It’s a very hard subject for me to talk about, and I think you could tell by how swollen my eyes were from crying the entire drive to her office that day. I am doing the best I know how, and I’m so grateful for all the support that I have in my life.”

Dina Manzo didn’t tweet with fans while watching the episode, but she did give a big thanks to everyone who sent her supportive messages.

I missed a lot of your tweets tonight, too many came in to see now but I appreciate how supportive you all are, I really do xo,” she tweeted as the episode aired.

During the show’s second season, Manzo decided to leave the show because of the drama with Danielle Staub. But she decided to come back in support of her friend, Teresa Giudice.

According to The Inquisitr, Dina Manzo came back to the show as her sister, Caroline Manzo, left to film her own spin-off show, Manzo’d With Children. The sisters are not speaking these days, but both of them are hoping for a reconciliation down the road.

Vicki Gunvalson Admits To Flirting With Shannon Beador’s Husband David

27 Aug

TheHollywoodGossip.com:

The Real Housewives of Orange County star Vicki Gunvalson admitted flirting with “hot” co-star David Beador in one of the stranger moments from last night’s reunion.

This came out after David and Heather Dubrow’s husband Terry joined their wives and the other cast members housewives on the couch with Andy Cohen.

Vicki revealed that David asked her a rather provocative question about her bra – what color it was – and that the “hot” RHOC husband is a total flirt.

David, whose marital problems with Shannon Beador are well documented if you watch The Real Housewives of Orange County online, was in the hot seat.

This tied into David’s infamous hoedown “spread those legs” catcall of the mechanical bull-riding Heather Dubrow, which Terry “lost two months of sleep” over.

Terry said that part of the reason he took an inappropriate, but mostly harmless comment so hard was that Gunvalson had also riled him up about it.

After telling him that David “loves to flirt with me and touch my underwear,” Terry said it was hard for him to let go of the remark, even if David apologized.

Gunvalson then said David “never touched” her underwear, but definitely flirted with her as they got dressed and ready for the Dubrow hoedown.

Heather begged to differ in this Real Housewives of Orange County Season 9 Episode 19 rehashing, insisting that Vicki told her all this about David.

Vicki shrugged, “He just said, ‘What color bra do you have on?’ I’m like, ‘I don’t know.’”

David, ashamed, added, “You were getting dressed at our house before the hoedown.”

Kathy Wakile Speaks on Her #1 Selling Dessert Cookbook: “Indulge: Delicious Little Desserts That Keep Life Real Sweet”

26 Aug

Wetpaint.com:

We haven’t seen a ton of Kathy Wakile so far on The Real Housewives of New Jersey Season 6, but that’s because the desserts queen was hard at work finishing up her much-anticipated dessert cookbook, Indulge: Delicious Little Desserts That Keep Life Real Sweet.

Indulge, which features Kathy’s own recipes for creating mouth-watering mini-desserts that will satisfy your cravings in just a few bites, is currently on pre-order at Amazon (it’s released September 2) — and it’s already hit the #1 best seller in Dessert Baking spot on Amazon. Talk about impressive!

Wetpaint Entertainment recently caught up with Kathy to talk about what makes her book so irresistible and to get some dish on the most recent RHONJ drama.

Wetpaint Entertainment: Anyone who’s watching RHONJ knows you’re the dessert expert, but what sets your cookbook apart from all the others out there?
Kathy Wakile: Well, everything is small, bite sized. So I’ve developed all the recipes, broken them all down, controlled them to make sure everything is right per recipe. It makes it fun. And then it’s so pretty. Everything that’s small is so cute, you know? So each recipe makes the desserts aesthetically beautiful.
Also, I don’t take any of the flavor away. I make everything small, but in that I don’t take the sugar out, I don’t take any of the extra fat out. So you do feel like you’ve indulged in dessert. Real dessert instead of a reduced calorie whatever. How I’m reducing the calories is the size, so you do get satisfied with just two bites. That’s the key. You go traveling to Europe, you get regular desserts, but they’re small, the way that desserts are intended to be. Just little sweet notes, not this supersized anything that doesn’t really have any taste, and then you feel guilty afterwards.

And then the other great thing is that my book is broken down by season, because that’s the way I cook, and most cooks really do cook that way, using what’s readily available at its peak of freshness. And what you’re thinking about. You know, in the summer time you’re not really thinking about baking, because it’s too hot, you don’t want to heat up your house, so we’re looking for lighter things, like gelato, or we have a section of fruit barbeque. It goes through the seasons, and it’s great that way.

What was the hardest part of developing the book?
I think it was testing and re-testing and making sure everything was right. For me, the creative side of my brain is always working, so I don’t write things down. I don’t think to write things down, and I just assume that other people know. And when you’re writing a book, when you’re teaching, you have to take people step by step through the recipes. As someone that’s been doing it for so long, that’s hard to remember. As a teacher, you have to remember you’re teaching someone who has never made this before, or maybe has never baked before. So that’s a really important factor in writing a cookbook, or specifically a dessert or baking cookbook. I have to remember that I’m teaching someone.

What’s your favorite recipe from the book?
I think that any of the lemon desserts are my favorite because they’re sweet and tart at the same time, and refreshing. And I have a number of different lemon desserts. The Lemon Dream Cheesecake Cuties, they’re so cute, and they’re tiny, they’re literally three bites. They’re decedent, and refreshing and tart, just something so special.

What’s your top piece of advice for someone who is new to baking?
Start off with the simplest recipes, and perfect that, and go from there. Don’t try and make something that’s so complex that you end up getting so confused and discouraged and not wanting to go back to it. If you start off making something simple, and making it really great, that’s your foundation for the next thing. 

So in my book, I have recipes that start with one element. Like, apple pie, simple right? Very simple. I have a recipe that’s simple but small. And then from there I build on other recipes that incorporate apples, some are simple, some make them a little more complicated. So in the fall, when everyone’s going apple picking, we have four different apple recipes. And that is the same for, in summer, with tiramisu, I have a traditional tiramisu, and then I have three other recipes for tiramisu, each one that’s a little more complex. So I say master the basics, and then build on it.

That sounds like a great way to learn.
I want to encourage people to bake and make desserts, but not discourage them or have them feel guilty afterwards. And the best thing about my recipes is that they break down easily to share. Instead of making one big cake to share, and then you have none left, you can make a dozen little cakes, and bring six over to someone. For me, it makes it easy to share, and sharing is caring. That’s the best part of cooking, it’s sharing it with people you love.

We’ve seen you a little on RHONJ Season 6. Will we be seeing more of you?
Yes! During the time when we were filming I was so involved in writing my cookbooks, so I really needed that time to finish up. And also my expanding dessert line, I was on tour, with my desserts, so that kept me busy. But towards the end of the season I had a little bit more time, so you’ll start seeing a little bit more of us.

Teresa Aprea’s Husband Rino Allegedly Cheated On Wife With Her Mother ‘More Than Once’

26 Aug

RadarOnline.com:

Is this the most twisted Housewives scandal yet? After last night’s episode of Real Housewives of New Jersey revealed claims that Teresa Aprea‘s husband, Rino, cheated on her with her mother, Santa, a RHONJ insider tells Radar, “It’s true” — and it happened “more than once!”

Viewers were stunned on Sunday night, after guest star Victoria Gotti told Amber Marchese and Teresa Giudice that Rino had admitted to the dalliance with his mother-in-law.

Now a source tells Radar, “It happened a long time ago, but Rino and Santa did have sex. And it happened more than once.”

“Teresa’s family is crazy and it shouldn’t be shocking to anyone that knows them,” the source continued.

The claims emerged when Giudice’s friend Gotti stopped by to surprise her while Giudice was promoting her Fabellini wines. Gotti then invited Giudice and fellow cast member Marchese – who showed up to surprise Giudice as well – to her home to catch up.

Gotti then explained how she met Rino while out to dinner at his restaurant. After only knowing him for two weeks, she claimed, he gave her a diamond Rolex watch while she was recovering from surgery in the hospital. Despite thinking that he was nuts, she said, Gotti continued a friendship with him.

“One night we were all out as a group in his restaurant. He started talking about his divorce and he tells me this crazy story,” Gotti said on the show. “He said, ‘It’s something that she will never forgive me for’… and I said, ‘You cheated?’ And he went, ‘Yeah.’ And I said, ‘If the love is strong enough she’ll get over it’ and he went, ‘No.’ I went, ‘So you cheated more than once?’ And he said, ‘No, it’s who I cheated with… Her mother.’”

In episodes to come, expect Bravo to “fully exploit this tawdry affair,” the source said. “Ratings for the show have been so low. Teresa’s mom is mortified that this has been discussed on the show, and now says she has to go into hiding!”

Tamra Barney Wants You To Know That She’s Not Getting Divorced and She Wasn’t Fired From ‘RHOC’

25 Aug

Honestly, I don’t even think Tamra tries to be the “villian”. I just think it’s her natural inclination to talk shit to people’s face and behind their back (tho you think she’d chill when it comes to Vicki) and like most people she hates being around people she deems as “phony” (i.e. Gretchen and Slade, which the whole world can attest to). Love her or hate her tho, you can’t deny that she gets a reaction, thus Bravo would be stupid to get rid of her:

Surprise, surprise, another cast member is getting ready to bite the dust in the Real Housewives franchise. On the heels of Teresa Giudice getting fired from The Real Housewives of New Jersey, there has been an increase in reports claiming that Tamra Barney is getting fired from The Real Housewives of Orange County.
The show just ended its ninth season on August 18th, and we’re already looking at cast replacements for next season. Apparently, Bravo is thinking of firing Tamra because of her crappy attitude towards her co-stars and towards the show in general. See, there’s a delicate balance here – the cast members have to be catty enough to generate gossip and good TV drama, but not so much that they cause major behind-the-scenes problems. Ideally, everyone would just be really good at acting and fake their drama, but these are not professionally trained thespians – they’re reality stars. They are on reality TV for a reason, and that’s usually because they failed at acting, music, or another, more respected profession.
Really, the only reason that Tamra is still on the show is because her divorce drama from Eddie Judge was bringing a lot of publicity, even if the divorce isn’t necessarily a ‘divorce’. Yeah, that’s right – Tamra’s totally been faking the majority of her relationship problems with Eddie, which she knows has been keeping her relevant in the eyes of Bravo. She understands that the minute she stops being a draw, she’s done for – and unfortunately for her, that’s already happened. Bravo doesn’t see the attention she gets as enough of an offset for her horrendous behavior, and so it’s bye-bye time for Tamra Barney.
Of course Tamra Barney thinks that reporting the gossip and news about her, Eddie Judge,  their fake divorce and Real Housewives of Orange County is verboten.  Of course Tamra took the time out of her busy entrepreneurial schedule (Tamra hilariously decribes herself on her Facebook page as an ‘entrepreneur’) to slam CDL – check image above. In any case, let’s see what Bravo does.

Lisa Vanderpump and Brandi Glanville Mend Their Friendship After Real Housewives of Beverly Hills’ Fallout

25 Aug

EOnline.com:

Have two of our favorite Housewives turned a new leaf after one of the season’s most infamous feuds?!

So it seems, as E! News has learned that Brandi Glanville hosted a housewarming party at her new pad on Friday night, where both Lisa Vanderpump and husband Ken Todd were in attendance.

Glanville and Vanderpump—who quickly formed a bond and soon seemed to be BFFs when the former model joined the hit Bravo show in season three—had an epic falling out last season after the mother of two accused her former bestie of being disloyal, citing the restaurateur’s friendship with Vanderpump Rules star Scheana Marie, who has said that she had an affair with Glanville’s ex husband Eddie Cibrian.

We’re told that jaws dropped when Ken and Lisa walked in the door, in spite of the couple shunning Brandi at the reunion last season, although it seems the former pals have begun to sort out their differences.

“They approached Brandi and chatted with her very cordially,” a source tells E! News of longtime lovebirds. “I wouldn’t say things were as good as they used to be, but fences seem to be mending.”

An even more surprising attendee?

Adrienne Maloof, who previously threatened to sue Glanville after the author made comments about her family on television.

Last month, fans were shocked when photos surfaced of the former enemies hugging it out with a source telling E! News that the two mended fences at co-star Kyle Richards‘ annual White Party.

“At the end of the day, neither one of them wanted to keep fighting,” an insider spilled to E! News in July. “A lot was said and I think both realized they were each in the wrong. They first saw each other at Kyle’s White Party, then decided to meet up a few days later for a sit down. It wasn’t so much about becoming best friends or anything. It was just about making peace.”
