Ramona Singer and Bethenny Frankel Celebrate Memorial Day With a Barbecue and an Accident

31 May

EOnline.com:

Despite onscreen fights with their co-stars, Bethenny Frankel and Ramona Singer proved they’re friends in real life.

The Real Housewives of New York City stars hung out together in the Hamptons over Memorial Day Weekend, where they enjoyed a barbecue with friends. Frankel took to Snapchat to show off her the events from her relaxing weekend away, where she posted videos and pictures of her grilling, lounging by the pool and even her new tricked-out Ford Bronco.

“Grillin’ n’ chillin’,” she captioned a picture of herself cooking some burgers. The Bravo star looked like she was ready to celebrate the start of summer, as she posed in her teeny purple bikini with her delicious food in hand.

She also snapped a funny pic of herself wearing matching purple goggles outfitted with eyelashes, presumably before she went for a swim in her pool.

But all the fun and games came to a quick end when Frankel discovered Singer had scratched her brand new car, which she had designed to match the colors of her brand Skinnygirl. She shared a video of Singer sitting on the ground next to the tiny scratch on the door and wrote, “I will kill her.” In the video Frankel can be heard scolding her reality BFF.

“Ramona walked in one second ago and scratched my car!” she says in the video.

Stephanie Hollman Reveals Why She Was in Therapy ‘the Entire Time We Were Filming’

31 May

ETOnline.com:

For Real Housewives of Dallas star Stephanie Hollman, fame is still a weird concept. 
“I’m always really shocked when people come up to me and recognize me, because you know, I don’t think it’s really hit me that I’m on TV occasionally,” Stephanie tells ET. “It’s really weird.”
Stephanie says she doesn’t think of herself as a celebrity, and probably never will. 
“People feel like they know you,” Stephanie says. “Like, I ran into these girls in the bathroom. One of them was like, ‘I love you on the show, do you want to talk about poop?’ No, we don’t have to talk about poop, it’s fine!”
“It’s really cute, they think that they’re, like, your girlfriend,” she adds. “It’s really fun.”

Notoriety was never the goal of signing up for reality TV. Stephanie just wanted to get out of her comfort zone. 
“I feel like I’ve learned more about myself in one year than I have my entire life,” Stephanie admits.
“My husband [Travis Hollman] is amazing. Whenever I was approached to do the show, I did not think I could do it. He was like, give yourself permission to, you know, try something and be yourself, and the worst thing that happens is you don’t go back for a season two.”
“So, I will say I’m very lucky, because Travis played along the entire time,” Stephanie gushes. “He was a trouper.”
Stephanie says it was important for her to protect that relationship going into filming.
“I’m going to be completely honest,” Stephanie shares. “We do therapy, which sounds unromantic.
We started before the show, and we did it the entire time we were filming, ‘cause I felt like it’s easy for people to lose sight of who they are, and I didn’t want to lose sight of what is important, which is my husband and my children.”

Do Not Talk Trash About Dorinda Medley’s Birthday Cake

30 May

EOnline.com:

Note to self: Do not ever, under any circumstances, talk trash about Dorinda Medley‘s birthday cake.

In this sneak peek of next week’s all-new episode of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, the action’s right where we left it at Dorinda’s Berkshires home—and things are about to go from bad to worse. It’s clear that last night’s cliffhanger argument between Bethenny Frankel and Luann de Lesseps broke the party into two groups, with Luann and Ramona Singer camped out in the kitchen. Luann’s still losing her mind over Sonja Morgan‘s rescinded invitation, loudly questioning why there would be a cake that says “Happy Birthday, Dorinda” if the reason for the trip wasn’t, as her host claimed, to celebrate a birthday?

Her big mistake? Continuing to rant once Ms. Medley herself was within earshot.

“You can talk about me, you can talk about my house, you can talk about my decorations—but do not mess with Diane Sincala’s birthday cake,” Dorinda says calmly in one of her talking heads. “When it comes to my mother, you don’t go there.”

That calm, however, is nowhere to be found in the moment. When Dorinda enters that kitchen, Luann never knew what hit her.

“Don’t say my ‘non-birthday birthday.’ It’s not my birthday. My mother bought this on Saturday,” she begins, growing more and more agitated with each sentence. “Don’t say that. I think everyone is acting very poorly. I put in a big effort here and this is my home. And I made a conscious choice not to invite Sonja so we could all have a good time! And I think it’s a disgrace of you people!”

Jacqueline Laurita and Teresa Giudice’s First Meeting In Years Makes For One Awkward ‘RHONJ’ Season 7 Moment

30 May

Bustle.com:

Tuesday has been an exciting day for Real Housewives of New Jersey fans. First, the trailer for RHONJ Season 7 was released. Finally, right? Then, a sneak peek of Teresa Giudice and Jacqueline Laurita’s first meeting in years was posted by Bravo. The last time new episodes and footage of RHONJ aired was in 2014, so seeing the first interaction between Teresa and Jacqueline, who haven’t had face-to-face contact for two years, is definitely a treat. That said, it also makes for one extremely awkward moment between the pair who used be thick as thieves.

As you can watch below, Teresa is busy vacuuming when there’s a knock at the door. A very surprised Teresa opens the door and finds Jacqueline holding two large cups of coffee. Well, I guess if you’re going to show up uninvited in the morning, you better come bearing caffeine.

It is great to see them hugging and smiling, rather than in one of the heated arguments they’ve got into in the past. However, as soon as the smiles and hugs are over, it gets super uncomfortable. Teresa keeps repeating how she had no idea Jacqueline was stopping by to which Jacqueline replies, “Always full of surprises.” They continue to stand awkwardly in the foyer, but Teresa does end up inviting Jacqueline in. But, before they can sit down and talk, they’re interrupted by the phone. End scene.

Well, fans will just have to wait until the RHONJ Season 7 premiere on July 10 to see what else happens.

NeNe Leakes Blasts Kenya Moore & Other ‘RHOA’ Stars

28 May

Enstarz.com:

NeNe Leakes and Kenya Moore might have ended season eight of Bravo’s The Real Housewives of Atlanta on good terms; but it Leakes definitely didn’t have a problem going off about Moore and their previous feud.

Leakes, who is currently headlining her own comedy tour “So Nasty & So Rude” (which interestingly enough is what Moore called her during a reunion special of the show in a previous season), did not hold back at all when she dished on the drama between her and Moore.

“This b**** is going to come to come and tell me ‘B**** I been in Hollywood for 20 years.’ B**** you was not in Hollywood for no twenty years and if so I did not see you’re a**,” Leakes said during her show at a Los Angeles night club. “You were not in Blac Hollywood, White Hollywood.”

She went on to say that she is the one who made Moore relevant.

“But what I did for you’re a** blew the dust off that crown. You put your a** in my Hollywood. I took the hedges off that for you.”

Katie Rost Put On Blast For Fake Philanthropy

28 May

Bossip.com:

RHOP star Katie Rose is being labeled a fake philanthropist over charges her charity for underprivileged kids barely raises any money for anyone but her legal team and office costs according to Globe Magazine:

The only contributions to show up on federal tax forms over the last five years for the foundation are donations totaling $32,000 from her mom, Geico executive Rynthia Rost, according to public record.

On her foundation website Katie talks a good game…but in the last five years the charity handed out less than $3,000, mostly small checks such as $200 to the DC College Access Program.

In contrast, the records show that the operation spends far more in administrative, legal and accounting costs.

Sonja Morgan Excluded from Berkshires Trip Following Bethenny Frankel Showdown Over Tipsy Girl

27 May

People.com:

This is what it’s like to be on Bethenny Frankel‘s bad side: Not only do you get non-invited from the Berkshires, but said non-invitation gets explained to you as a good thing, because you are so fragile, because you need to be away from the group, because you need one-on-one time with Dorinda Medley.

Such is the life of Sonja Morgan on Wednesday night’s The Real Housewives of New York City, after Frankel took Morgan to task – in skin-peeling fashion – last week over Morgan’s potential new Prosecco line called Tipsy Girl.

Of course, that’s not how Frankel saw it: In her words, she was very over the whole conflict. Over it. And to hear Medley tell it, since she is the one who did the non-inviting, not having Morgan join the rest of the group for the Berkshires trip was about spending more quality alone time with her, away from outside influences like alcohol and tension.  

But to Morgan? It all felt like “choosing sides.” And Medley chose Frankel.

Not that she agreed with the decision. As she told new roomie LuAnn de Lesseps, “The girls love me at parties, I’m the one making out with everyone.”

When everyone wasn’t talking about the Berkshires trip and Morgan’s absence from it, they were talking about de Lesseps’ new mystery man (named Tom), who used to date Ramona Singer.

Bankruptcy Case Reopened for Teresa Giudice

26 May

ABCNews.com:

A federal judge has reopened a bankruptcy case for “Real Housewives of New Jersey” cast member Teresa Giudice (JOO’-dys), who pleaded guilty in 2014 to bankruptcy fraud.

Giudice finished her 15-month sentence in December after she and her husband, Joe, admitted they hid assets from bankruptcy creditors and submitted phony loan applications to get $5 million in mortgages and construction loans.

NJ.com reports Teresa Giudice’s attorneys on Tuesday told a federal bankruptcy court judge she has agreements to pay off all but two of her 29 creditors. Giudice had been trying to block the reopening of the case.

The newspaper says Judge Stacey Meisel’s decision to reopen the case could mean unsatisfied creditors might be able to collect potential proceeds from a lawsuit she filed against her bankruptcy attorney.

Ana Quincoces Now A Contestant on “Food Network Star”

25 May

Inquisitr.com:

Ana Quincoces may be a name that rings some bells if you are an avid watcher of the Real Housewives franchise. Before The Real Housewives of Miami was canceled by Bravo, Ana starred on the show, and fans remember her for being a feisty woman who didn’t take anything from anyone.

Quincoces was working in the legal field, which gave her an edge, but she was also unhappy with being caught up in cheating rumors, as Karent Sierra’s then-boyfriend had been cheating on her with a woman named Anna. Quincoces has left the drama of The Real Housewives of Miami behind, and she’s now ready to fight again — but on her terms.

According to a new Bravo report, Ana Quincoces is a contestant on Food Network Star, a show about talented cooks who are competing to get their own cooking show on the network. While she was filming The Real Housewives of Miami, Ana was often spotted cooking in her kitchen, and she has admitted that she’s talented when it comes to Cuban food. But the Cuban angle won’t be her winning edge — it will be her ability to make something out of nothing.

“Making something from nothing. I will go into a kitchen with bare cupboards and very little in the refrigerator and I can make something really great,” Ana told The Food Network of this new experience, according to Bravo. “It’s kind of like a challenge. I think if you go to the grocery store and buy every single ingredient you need to make a meal… anybody can do that. So if I have something, some starting point, I will kind of figure something out with whatever’s available. That and the fact that I’m fast in the kitchen. I think I have an ability to balance flavors really well. Different dimensions of flavors and different layers of flavor. I think… the hallmark of Cuban cooking is very much like that. So, I think I have that ability.”

Of course, Ana Quincoces does have working experience in the food industry. She’s a cookbook author and chef, and she’s created a line called the Skinny Latina. She’s a finalist on the show, and she’s so close to landing her own show. Does she have a weakness that could prevent her from winning? No, but she does have a weakness: her sweet tooth.

Siggy Flicker and Dolores Catania Join ‘The Real Housewives of New Jersey’

25 May

Bustle.com:

The Real Housewives of New Jersey are bringing two new housewives into their circle — Dolores Catania and Siggy Flicker — and, with Season 7 premiere of the hit Bravo television series on it’s way, these latest introductions will also be stepping into your living room. One of the newest RHONJ cast members, Dolores Catania, is no stranger to these women. She might be a stranger to some fans, however, which means we need to ask the obvious question: who is Dolores from RHONJ Season 7?

Catania, a single mother of two, is actually said to be a family friend of fellow cast members Teresa Guidice (who has returned from prison for the new season), Jacqueline Laurita, Kathy Wakile, and the Manzo family. In fact, according to All About The Tea, fans have actually seen Catania before in tapings for previous seasons and at events for the show. But there’s still a whole lot more fans need to know about one of the show’s latest additions.

First off, the New Jersey native is a whole lot more than a housewife and a mom. Aside from raising her two college-aged children, Gabrielle and Frankie, the happily divorced housewife has also held a number of jobs over the years. Catania has done everything from serving as a corrections officer to working as a surgical technician to acting as a realtor in the state she knows and loves. Most recently, she also owns a number of fitness centers in the area and is an active member in charity work as well. Basically, between working, staying close with her ex-husband of 15 years, raising a family, and being apart of the latest season of the Real Housewives, Catania might as well be called Wonder Woman. And, in the latest sneak peak of the new season, it seems like looking for love is just going to be another addition to her already busy schedule.

However, as fans can see in the Season 7 preview, having so much on her plate is just the cusp of what we can expect from Catania. Having a busy schedule, a strong Italian background, and a soft spot for her friends also proves that nothing is going to get past this straight-forward new cast member. At the 2:10 mark of the trailer, she is already letting her friends know how serious she is by screaming, “Trust me when I f*cking tell you, I’ve had enough of it all! I don’t f*cling deal with this sh*t!”

Ahead of New QVC Line, Lisa Rinna Apologizes To Fans On Instagram Over Season 6

24 May

FashionnStyle.com:

Lisa Rinna has second thoughts about her recent “Housewives” behavior.

Season 6 of “The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” was very intense for both Lisa R. and Lisa Vanderpump. After Lisa R. accused Lisa V. of manipulating the Munchausen rumors about Yolanda Hadid, the friendship between the Lisas was over.

This drama divided “RHOBH” fans, and it caused Lisa R. to fight back at some of them as well. However, Lisa R. is now having second thoughts about the way she reacted.

On Friday, the former soap opera actress took to Instagram to apologize to fans for any rude comments she may have sent their way, during the end of season 6.

“Last month, as ‘RHOBH’ was wrapping up, my social media platforms were flooded with intense, unkind messages. As a rule, I prefer to focus only on the wonderful, amazing fans out there because they bring such incredible light with everything they do and say,” Lisa R. began the post. 

“Unfortunately, the consistent negativity that appeared on my Twitter, Instagram and Facebook day after day, seeped in and to my disappointment, got the better of me.”

She continued, “I used ugly, derogatory words in the comment section of my Instagram account to try and stop the people who were constantly lashing out at me. That’s not okay.”

At the end of the post, Lisa R. was hopeful that anyone who she hurt can forgive her.

“Please take this as my sincere and heartfelt apology to anyone that feels slighted, hurt or disappointed by my comments directed to a very specific group of Internet trolls,” she wrote.
