Vicki Gunvalson Shares Pics of New Boyfriend Jack: “Life Is Funny Sometimes”

29 Feb

The Real Housewives of Orange County star Instagrammed pictures with her new man Jack on Sunday, showing the pair when they first met back in February 2011 and again in January 2016. Both pics were taken at the Handlebar J bar in Scottsdale, Ariz., but a whole lot went down in the five years between those snaps.

Back when the first photo was taken, Vicki was still legally married to Donn Gunvalson. She’d already filed for a dissolution of marriage (their divorce was finalized in 2014) and Brooks Ayers was just about to enter the picture. Vicki’s daughter Briana Wolfsmith wasn’t exactly thrilled about her mom’s new man, but that romance continued off and on for the next four years. Finally in August 2015, following quite a controversial few months which included Brooks lying about his cancer treatment, the pair called it quits for good.

Now, though, Vicki is happily back in the dating game. As E! News exclusively reported last week, the Bravo star and Jack go way back. “She has known him for several years and he is a really great guy and she is incredibly happy,” her rep told E! News. “They met several years ago. She was in Arizona and saw him recently and he told her when she comes back to Arizona they should go out. They went out this past Saturday. They went to the Handlebar J bar in Scottsdale. She said she had the time of her life [during the date] and is very excited for her future. And she is thrilled the family approves.”

And that’s always a good thing! “It’s not exclusive and not serious but Jack has already met Brianna and Brianna definitely approves,” Vicki’s rep added. “And Ryan [Culberson, Briana’s husband] is very excited because they have a lot in common and same interest like ATV riding.”

Kenya Moore Continues To Fuel Pregnancy Rumors With New Instagram Video

29 Feb

Kenya Moore continues to be at the center of pregnancy rumors. The 45-year-old “Real Housewives Of Atlanta” star is rumored to be expecting her first child with boyfriend Matt Jordan, 28.

Moore hasn’t directly commented on the reports, but she has been posting cryptic messages on Instagram. Sunday, the former Miss USA posted a grainy video of her telling fans that she was on her way to an Oscars event but was having a hard time zipping up her pants.

The Bravo star also posted a selfie Friday, captioning it, “I have a secret.” It’s rumored that Moore will announce her alleged pregnancy during the Season 8 reunion of “Real Housewives Of Atlanta.”

Rumors first began that Moore was expecting baby No. 1 when castmate Phaedra Parks hinted about the pregnancy on “Dish Nation.” While Phaedra was discussing Kenya’s fight with cast mate Cynthia Bailey, she said: “I did hear that one of [Cynthia’s] non-best friends might be having a bundle of joy, so maybe she can be the godmother.”

Phaedra also teased Kenya’s pregnancy during an appearance of “Watch What Happens Live” earlier this month. When host Andy Cohen asked whether Kenya was with child, Phaedra responded, “Well, that’s what I heard.”

She added, “I have no proof. But that’s what I heard form a somewhat reliable source.”

Yolanda Foster Pushing ‘RHOBH’ Execs To Bring Kim Richards Back Next Season

27 Feb

As Yolanda Hadid‘s health continues to improve, has learned the Lyme disease advocate has found a new cause: Kim Richards! The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star is telling friends she’s been pleasantly surprised by how well Richards has coped with death of her ex-husband, Monty Brinson. And now, sources say she is telling producers that Paris Hilton‘s aunt should be welcomed back with open arms for the next season of the Bravo hit show.

Friends were concerned about Richards relapsing after Brinson died at the age of 58 on January 24, following a long cancer battle. But so far she’s stayed on the straight and narrow.

“Yolanda has been so impressed with Kim’s commitment to her sobriety,” an insider told Radar. “Watching Monty suffer for so very long was the hardest thing for Kim to deal with. She basically put her life on hold for the last two years to take care of Monty.

“But Kim has been absolutely committed to her sobriety and promised Monty that she would stay on the path to maintain it,” the source explained.

So now, “Yolanda wants Kim to rejoin the cast of the show for next season,” the source revealed. “Kim has also been a great support for Yolanda during her divorce from David and her recovery from Lyme disease.”

Hadid could benefit from having a close friend on the show, after recently sparring with Lisa Rinna, Lisa Vanderpump and Kyle Richards when they questioned her Lyme disease diagnosis.

As long as they never, ever bring Brandi back…I’d be ok with a Kim return.

Robyn Dixon’s Former Maryland Home is on the Market

27 Feb

The 3,800-square foot colonial formerly owned by Robyn and Juan Dixon — the divorced couple that acts like anything but on Bravo’s “Real Housewives of Potomac” — just hit the open market after being foreclosed on in 2015.

Juan, a former Washington Wizards player and current coach at his alma mater the University of Maryland, and Robyn, a publicist, bought the three-bedroom Silver Spring home in 2002 for $725,000. Nearly 14 years later their dream house, located in the upscale Hampshire Green golf course community just outside the Beltway, is now on the market for $715,000.

“It’s priced to sell,” said our source in the local real estate community. In the halcyon days of the housing market homes in the area — big, estate-style affairs made for entertaining and sitting on leafy one-acre lots — could sell in the million-dollar range. These days not so much.

The Dixons’ financial trouble — they both filed for bankruptcy in 2013 — has been a central plot point on “Housewives,” charting the couple’s joint climb out of bankruptcy. Despite divorcing in 2012, the former high school sweethearts still live under the same roof and sleep in the same bed.

In a recent interview with OK Magazine, Robyn said she was “bank on track” but not yet fully recovered.

“It’s not perfect. It’s not where I want it,” she said. “We are still dealing with repercussions from everything that’s happened to us.”

Kyle Richards Feels ‘Threatened’ By Yolanda Foster

26 Feb

Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Kyle Richards tries to stay out of the drama on the show, but her honesty tends to get her in trouble. Throughout this season, Kyle has defended her decision to speak out about Yolanda Foster’s Lyme disease and her children’s diagnoses — simply because Foster brought it up first. But now that Yolanda is fighting back, Richards is sharing her thoughts.

According to a new Bravo report, Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Kyle Richards is now revealing that she felt threatened by Foster’s comment about having plenty of secrets about her in “the vault.” And based on the lunch, Richards assumes that Yolanda actually has issues with everyone.

“Yolanda also seems to have an issue with Lisa’s and my friendship. It feels like whenever Lisa and I are on a good path, happy and enjoying each other’s company, someone has to make a snide remark. We are the closest of the group, nobody can deny that. We have had our issues but we also laugh together and care about each other,” the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star reveals in her Bravo blog.

When Foster made the comment about “the vault,” Kyle felt threatened. She thought that her Real Housewives of Beverly Hills co-star was threatening her. She felt that Foster was saying she would start dishing details about her life if she continued to talk about Lyme disease.

“Yolanda saying ‘I hold a lot in the vault, Honey’ was an absolute threat. No matter how she may try to spin it. Nobody says that in that tone for any other reason,” Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Kyle reveals. None of the other ladies said anything about “the vault,” but Richards clearly felt threatened by the comment. 

And it doesn’t really make sense that she would bring it up. On social media, Yolanda decided to post a message about “the vault” comment after The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills aired on Tuesday. She points out that a vault is a sensitive, secret, and protective place, and she didn’t mean to threaten Richards. But it’s hard for Kyle to take that seriously, especially since she got an email from her Real Housewives co-star later that night.

Sheree Whitfield’s Proposed Spinoff Show Gets Shut Down by HGTV

25 Feb

Now this is embarrassing.

Sheree Whitfield may have reprised her role on Bravo’s hit reality series “Real Housewives of Atlanta,” but it appears that the long time reality star’s dream of scoring a second reality show on HGTV has been squashed. On January 17, the 46-year-old took to Twitter to gush over allegedly nabbing a new series on the Scripps Network channel, focusing on her nearly 5-year construction project, Chateau Sheree. “It’s time for my spinoff to show the finishing touches on #chateausheree Come on @hgtv,” she tweeted.

But when a fan asked Whitfield what the show was called, she replied, “Must sign the deal first and then I will let you know luv!” This led fans to believe the show wasn’t a concrete deal:

Unfortunately for Whitfield, new reports claim a deal with HGTV is never going to happen. A representative tells Radaronline, “At this time, Sheree does not have a contract with HGTV for a show.” In fact, according to the network, the mother of three was just sharing wishful thinking. “It appears that she is interested in having her own HGTV show to showcase her renovations but we do not have any plans for that currently,” added the rep.

While it’s no secret Whitfield has been working on her home for several years now — some progress has even been documented on “RHOA” — HGTV just isn’t buying what she’s selling. Meanwhile, the socialite and fashion designer has yet to respond to HGTV’s announcement.

Kim Richards Admits It’s ‘Devastating’ That Her Struggles Have Forced Daughter Kimberly to Become Her ‘Caretaker’

25 Feb

Exposing her deepest secrets on reality TV hasn’t only been harsh for Kim Richards – it’s also had “devastating” effects on her daughter Kimberly Jackson.

In an exclusive sneak peek at Lifetime’s upcoming series The Mother/Daughter Experiment, the former Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star, 51, and her youngest daughter, 21, reveal how being in the public eye changed the dynamic of their relationship.

“It’s been a roller coaster ride,” says Richards, who has been battling addiction in the spotlight and was arrested last year for public intoxication and shoplifting. “Being part of the Housewives has been an experience. It really hurt me because I was struggling with certain things.”

Jackson then admits in a separate interview: “I feel like I’m her caretaker because she’s fragile physically and emotionally. And it does overwhelm me.”

Bethenny Frankel Laughs Off Dating Rumors, Jokes About Unending Divorce Proceedings

24 Feb

Bethenny Frankel knows her relationship status is complicated, but she’s poking fun at romance rumors linking her to an old pal.

“fyi, I’m dating abt 65 guys. They’re all married, rich, famous & I’m pregnant w multiple babies,” the wise-cracking Real Housewives of New York City star tweeted Monday. “Oh & guess what? I’m married too.” 

Frankel, 45, is technically still wed thanks to prolonged divorce proceedings with estranged husband Jason Hoppy.

The couple split in 2013 following months of rumors that the two were on the rocks.

Shortly after the breakup, a source told PEOPLE that Frankel was “devastated.” She and Hoppy, 45, are parents to 5-year-old Bryn, and they fought a contentious custody battle and are still arguing over finances. 

Though the Skinnygirl mogul was seeing entrepreneur and CNBC host Marcus Lemonis over the summer, a source tells PEOPLE that she’s not settling down.

“She’s dating but not dating anyone exclusively,” the source explains. “She is happy being single and is focused on her business and her daughter.”

Kathryn Edwards Talks Being a ‘Real Housewives’ Newbie

24 Feb

Despite the family feuds and occasional glass of wine tossed, that didn’t stop “Real Housewives” newbie Kathryn Edwards from joining the Beverly Hills installment of the long-running show.

While chatting with Page Six on Tuesday, the 51-year-old reality star said she counts the eclectic cast of characters as her close pals.

“I am friends with Lisa Vanderpump and I don’t think any of them [the women] are petty,” Edwards explained.

Though she and the “Vanderpump Rules” matriarch are as thick as thieves, Edwards also admitted to clashing with other wives later in the season, including Erika Girardi over the use of a certain slur.

“I was adamant about the C-word. I understand it now, but I still don’t like it,” Edwards recounted of her previous tiff with Girardi, 44, in which they argued over the word c–t. As for Lisa Rinna‘s comments on Kim Richards‘ troubled behavior, Edwards was less forgiving.

“Scary seemed really insensitive to me considering where Kim was,” Edwards noted of the former child star, who was arrested for public intoxication and shoplifting on two separate occasions in 2015.

And while Edwards opted to take the “high road” where her disagreements with Kyle Richards‘ longtime friend Faye Resnick is concerned, should she return for Season 7 of the series, Edwards hopes to enjoy more special moments with her co-stars.

“Going to Dubai with all the ladies was a great memory,” she dished. “Some of them might not feel the same way.”

Lisa Vanderpump Scolds Erika Girardi for Talking Behind Her Back: ‘It’s Just Child’s Play’

23 Feb

Word to the wise: Don’t talk about getting tangled in Lisa Vanderpump‘s web behind her back.

In an exclusive sneak peek at Tuesday’s The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, Kathryn Edwards reveals to Vanderpump that new cast mate Erika Girardi has been saying some unflattering things about the Vanderpump Rules star.

Sitting around a table with Vanderpump, Kyle Richards and other cast members, Edwards recounts (not 100 percent accurately) a conversation in which Girardi said of Vanderpump: “I think she’s a sniper from the side. I think she doesn’t want to leave any finger prints.” 

Here’s how Edwards remembers the conversation: “She said, ‘Don’t let her steer you and don’t get caught in her web.’ … Those weren’t the words she used, but something like, basically I got the feeling: ‘Watch your back.’ ”  

Vanderpump doesn’t take kindly to that.

“It kind of pisses me off that Erika would say that,” she tells the camera. “Don’t get caught in my web? I barely have time to go to the bathroom. What do they think I’m doing? Spinning a web? It’s just child’s play.”

Kim Fields Calls Out “Irrelevant” Kenya Moore For Lying About Husband Being Gay

23 Feb

Wendy Williams warned Kim Fields that joining the cast of “The Real Housewives of Atlanta” wasn’t going to be fun for her, and true to Williams’ sentiment, Fields has had a rough time trying to fit in with the ladies and also deal with what seems to be constant shade from her co-star, Kenya Moore. Since the beginning of the season, the two ladies have been at odds with each other, with Moore throwing every bit of shade she possibly can at Fields during their beef. Although Fields has tried to keep her shade throwing to a minimum, it seems like she reached her breaking point last night because she posted a scathing Instagram post about Moore.

As fans of the show remember, Moore has claimed for months that Fields is boring and pompous and has thrown been throwing shade at her, while Fields has only hurled a sparse amount of disses in Moore’s direction.

However, things came to a head during the recent ladies’ trip to Jamaica when Cynthia Bailey asked Fields and Moore to co-direct her eyewear commercial and Bailey ended up choosing to work with Fields alone after Moore failed to show up to the pitch meeting and then completely failed to support Bailey during the shoot.

Since the decision, Moore claimed that Bailey was being a bad friend and that Fields was an unfit amateur at directing. She also claimed that Fields was trying to drive a wedge between her and Bailey, as well as alienate her from the rest of the cast. Moore took her shade a step further by also sharing news of rumors that Fields husband, Chris Morgan, is allegedly gay.

During last night’s episode, Fields brushed off the rumors about her husband and sat down with Moore to try and squash their beef. The ladies both claimed that they likely would never get along, but they both agreed to at least respect each other.

However, that pact was clearly thrown out of the window last night when Fields blasted Moore in an Instagram post.

Adrienne Maloof Gives DCFS Interview Amid Child Abuse Claims Targeting Ex-Husband Dr. Pau Nassif

22 Feb

Adrienne Maloof has formally been interviewed by child protective services as part of an ongoing investigation targeting her ex-husband, Dr. Paul Nassif, has learned.

The allegations involve the couple’s three children, Gavin, 12, and twin sons, Colin and Christian, 6.

The former Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star, 54, “has been interviewed by the Los Angeles Department of Children and Family Services,” a source told Radar. “Social workers asked how the kids were doing, and other routine questions that are commonly asked. Adrienne’s primary concern is the kids and their well-being. Period.”

The abuse scandal began when Nassif’s former bodyguard, Kevin Villalobos, stated in his resignation letter, “I could not silently standby while you hit and injured your children in angry outbursts.” The letter was also sent to Maloof. Nassif later sued Villalobos for defamation over the claims, but that wasn’t enough to stop the investigation.

Villalobos made a formal complaint with officials, and as Radar reported, a DCFS investigation against Nassif was launched. Insiders said the case is likely to be dismissed, and a source insisted, “Paul is a dedicated dad, and is fully cooperating with the investigation. He has nothing to hide.”
