After an explosive battle with Shannon Beador at her ’70s party and a foul-mouthed sushi dinner that left Dubrow fleeing in tears, Dodd’s built a reputation for herself that’s less-than-stellar in the Dubrow’s eyes.
Sitting down with Dodd and Tamra Judge at the end of Monday’s episode, Dubrow laid it all out on the table.
“I feel like we were getting along really well,” she said of their friendship. “But that sushi dinner? I’ve just never been involved in something like that. The screaming and vulgarity? I felt like I was suffocating and I had to leave.”
Dodd was quick to defend herself. “I was kind of shocked that you got so upset at me because I wasn’t talking to you,” she said. “It was a nightmare, and I’m really ashamed of myself, quite honestly.
But as Dubrow explained in a separate interview, Dodd’s regret was not enough.
“I think it’s great that Kelly’s showing remorse and she’s ashamed of her behavior. But the last two times I have been with Kelly, she has acted in a way that I think is not acceptable. So what possible guarantee do I have that it’s not going to happen again?” she confessed.
The Real Housewives of New York has finished what might’ve been its most explosive season ever, and from health scares to infidelity, all the drama will be revisited during the show’s three-part reunion special, premiering Aug. 31 on Bravo. Ramona Singer tells ET, “There were so many bombshells [at the reunion], my head was spinning. It took me two weeks to recover.”The reunion was taped in mid-July and the ladies took to social media shortly thereafter. On Snapchat, Sonja Morgan said she was “hardly able to speak” after the taping. It’s unclear whether her silence was the result of shock or physical exhaustion; Singer says the cast arrived at 6 a.m. and didn’t wrap until 9:30 p.m., with just a one-hour break during the “grueling” day.Bethenny Frankel had a fever that day, but Singer says that didn’t stop her from bringing the heat. “For not feeling well, she really went off the rails,” Singer says. Frankel tells ET this was her most difficult reunion ever for the show. “I didn’t enjoy it at all,” she says. “Last year, we all went to dinner afterwards. This year ended differently.”Frankel says she’s always lived honestly on the show, and argues some of the other ladies don’t do the same. “You have 50 percent of the cast that has a whole taboo, police line, do-not-cross section of their life that is not discussed on camera and never has been,” she says. “For legal issues and liability issues, Bravo doesn’t need to bring it up. It’s a difficult line to ride and that may be why I don’t come back.”At the reunion, the Skinnygirl mogul accuses new cast member Jules Wainstein, who is splitting from husband Michael after photos of him with an alleged mistress surfaced online, of planning to get divorced before the season even began. But Luann de Lesseps tells ET she doesn’t buy that theory. “I think Jules came into the show very much married,” she says. “They looked very much together. I was surprised, like everybody else, to hear.”Of course, de Lesseps’ fast engagement to Tom D’Agostino, Jr., and his kiss with another woman just days after will be a major topic of the reunion. For Singer, whose split from longtime husband Mario was chronicled on the show after he had an affair, the news of D’Agostino’s infidelity brought up memories. On the season finale, Singer revealed she discovered Mario’s affair through the press. “With my divorce … it was bittersweet because I really did care for him very much but we grew apart,” she says. “I mean he wants to live in Florida full time. Can you see me living in Boca full time? Not meant to be.”
Boy, they really teased us in the promo for this week’s new episode of The Real Housewives of New Jersey, didn’t they?
What seemed poised to be another round of battle in what we’ve been led to believe is the season of Teresa Giudice vs. Jacqueline Laurita was actually a relatively peaceful weekend getaway that saw the pair communicating, apologizing, and reminiscing about better times. And that phone call Teresa made to Joe Giudice begging him to come and get her? It was all a prank. Tricky, Bravo. Very tricky.
Despite some initial awkwardness upon Jacqueline’s arrival with Teresa remaining planted on the couch, forcing Jacqueline to come to her, things ran very smoothly. There was even hugging and offers to be there for one another when times get tough in the future. Of course, having seen the trailer for the entire season, we know this ceasefire between the two frenemies is bound to come to an end at some point. But for now, all’s well that ends well. Even if it is a little boring. (Seriously. We want the fireworks. Enough playing nice. It’s time to play not nice, as Teresa would say.)
We have to talk, for a second, about Siggy Flicker and her incessant meddling. She clearly means well, but she’s trying to force this relationship to get back on track way too hard. Our patience for her constant whispering with Melissa Gorga and Dolores Catania, as well as her weird celebration of Teresa being nice on the first night, is starting to wear thin. It’s no wonder Jacqueline snapped in the final moments of the episode when she thought she caught Melissa and Dolores talking in hushed tones about her yet again. We probably would’ve too. We get that being a relationship expert is her thing, but she’d do well to rein it in just a little.
While we brace ourselves for Teresa and Jacqueline’s friendship to sour yet again, we’ll leave you with one final thought: May the ongoing saga of Joe Gorga trying (and failing) to cook food for his kids never end. Because it’s hysterical.
Former Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Lisa Vanderpump and Yolanda Foster’s ex-husband, Mohamed Hadid, have blasted Brandi Glanville’s allegations in an ongoing court battle she has with fellow former Housewife, Joanna Krupa.Vanderpump and Hadid denied ever telling Glanville that Krupa was having an affair with Hadid, and they claim to have never said that Krupa’s private parts smelled.Previously, Glanville claimed that Vanderpump and Hadid – who have been friends for more than ten years – told her at Vanderpump’s home that Hadid had been cheating on Foster with Krupa during a two-year affair.Glanville and Krupa’s court battle first kicked off in January 2015 after Glanville mentioned the alleged affair in an interview with Andy Cohen and spoke about the smell of Krupa’s private parts.Krupa first sued Glanville in Miami Court, accusing her of slander and emotional distress demanding monetary damages for the damage she did to her reputation.Since then, Hadid has said that Krupa had zero to do with his marriage to Yolanda ending.On August 18, Krupa filed court documents to amend her complaint to seek punitive damages from Glanville, revealing that both Vanderpump, Yolanda Foster and Mohamed Hadid all said Glanville’s allegations are not true.Krupa said that the three key witnesses deny the story Glanville claims as her defense.Hadid said that he never informed Glanville of an affair between him and Krupa, and that he never made comments about Krupa’s private parts. Vanderpump also says she never had a conversation with Glanville.Krupa claimed that Glanville changed her story several times.She hopes to amend her complaint to seek punitive damages, which under Florida law allows a jury to award her up to $2million in damages.
Yep, she went there. Sonja Morgan alleges that her costar Dorinda Medley does drugs in a preview for the dramatic Real Housewives of New York City season 8 reunion, which airs Wednesday, September 7.
In the nearly two-minute teaser above, Medley, 51, expresses her disappointment at being accused of having an issue with substance abuse: “Why are you insinuating that you know I do drugs? That’s a horrible thing.”
Without hesitation, the Tipsy Girl founder, 52, fires back, “Everybody knows you do drugs!”
Prior to sitting down with the ladies of RHONY, Morgan opened up to Bravo head honcho Andy Cohen backstage (as seen in the sneak peek) about feeling the urge to go in on her castmates. “I have dirt on all the girls. I just hope I don’t go there,” the reality personality — who joined the hit series in the third season, which originally aired in 2010 — explains. “But I’m starting to, after all these years, have resentment.”
Siggy Flicker may be a new housewife on The Real Housewives of New Jersey, but fans are starting to learn more about this outspoken relationship expert. Even though Siggy helps other people with their relationships, it sounds like Flicker needs to focus on her own relationships.
Over the past couple of episodes, fans have seen how Siggy is learning more about her children, and on this week’s episode, she opened up about the importance of keeping traditions and values alive in her home. What exactly does she want to do in her home in New Jersey that her children can continue with?
According to a new Bravo report, Siggy Flicker is now revealing that she wants to keep the traditions alive in her New Jersey home, but she has been so busy with her career and her life that she hasn’t been able to keep those traditions alive. Siggy got emotional when talking to her family about the traditions because she wants to keep them alive, especially when it comes to her children. And as it turns out, Michael has some fun traditions they can keep going.“In this week’s episode I mentioned that after my divorce, I let a lot of my family’s traditions slide and put them on the backburner after meeting Michael. Although Michael is half-Jewish, we’ve really concentrated on his Italian heritage. Sadly, Michael lost both of his parents –- his mom to cancer when he was 16, and his hero, his father, to Lou Gehrig’s Disease nine years ago this month. I’ve worked with Michael to keep his family’s traditions going, especially the ones he holds dearest to his heart: Christmas, cooking and Sunday pasta dinner. Michael makes the BEST lasagna and takes pleasure in making 65 meatballs for seven people,” Siggy Flicker reveals on her Bravo blog for The Real Housewives of New Jersey.
Of course, Flicker has already struggled a bit to communicate with her young daughter. As fans have learned over the past couple of weeks on the show, her daughter has already been suspended a few times over using her cell phone during school hours. Siggy decided to remove her daughter’s phone until she was able to understand what she had done wrong, and it sounds like it was a great idea because she revealed that they had made progress in their relationship. And maybe removing cell phones during dinners could become a new tradition for the family.
“I’ve realized lately that I’ve been so busy making sure that Michael’s traditions were kept alive, I’ve let some of my family’s traditions slide. As everyone gets older, the time we all spend together is decreasing, and I figured there’s no better way to make the family closer again than by bringing back some of our family traditions. Kiddush is a great place to start! Putting the phones down for a couple hours was tough at first for all but so worth it,” Siggy Flicker points out on her Bravo blog.
Things might be going from bad to worse on The Real Housewives of Orange County.
In a clip of Monday’s upcoming episode on Entertainment Tonight, Dubrow and Dodd sit down at dinner to discuss the verbal punches that they each threw at the party.
“That wasn’t your party. That wasn’t your place,” Dodd tells Dubrow in response to her being asked to leave the party by the mother of four.
“When you start calling people the C-word and dumb f—s and start screaming in the middle of a restaurant, you lose all right to say what people can and cannot say back,” Dubrow, 47, replies in defense.
While the duo attempt to clear the air, a silent Judge watches – until Dodd brings up the gossip that Judge shared with Vicki Gunvalson about what Dubrow said.
“And then Vicki told me that, ‘Oh, she doesn’t want you to hang around her children,’ ” Dodd says to Dubrow.
“That’s not true,” Dubrow responds. “I didn’t say that.”
The clip then cuts to Judge’s confessional: “Yes, she has. But did she say it to Vicki? No. I said that to Vicki.”
Looking back at last Monday’s episode, viewers watch as Dubrow tells Judge that she doesn’t want her children around Dodd, which Judge then shares with Gunvalson.
“Why can’t I just keep my mouth shut?” Judge, 48, confesses.
In The Real Housewives of Melbourne episode ‘Bye Bye Byron,’ it’s Gamble Breaux’s big day. She asks her best friend Gina Liano to be the celebrant, to marry her and her fiance, Dr. Rick Wolfe. Gina agrees but the night before the wedding she skips out of Gamble’s party in order to watch herself on another reality TV show, Celebrity Apprentice.
When grilled by Chyka Keebaugh and Janet Roach, Gina at first says she didn’t leave the party to watch herself on TV but to celebrate the birthday of her son Miles, in her hotel room, where the TV was on. “Even if I did,” says Gina, what business is it of Chyka and Janet? Maybe Gina knew it was going to be one of her last episodes on Celebrity Apprentice. During the fourth episode, Gina was forced to quit Celebrity Apprentice due to a stomach bug for which she had to be hospitalized. The Real Housewives of Melbourne airs Fridays at 9pm on Bravo.
Luann de Lesseps is standing by fiance Tom D’Agostino, Jr. even after learning about his indiscretion just days after proposing to her. Just like most viewers who were baffled by the Countess’ decision to move on with her engagement, co-star Ramona Singer thinks de Lesseps forgave too fast.“I think she should have given him the cold shoulder longer than one night,” Singer told Entertainment Tonight. “In fact, I don’t think she even gave him the cold shoulder one night.”“I said this to Luann on the reunion … this is with anybody in life … if someone can’t tell the truth, that’s a red flag,” she added. “If he couldn’t tell the truth about his relationships with Sonya and me, that’s a red flag and that makes me nervous. That makes me nervous for Luann … I just find it beyond baffling that he couldn’t tell the truth about his relationships.”According to Singer, who was romantically involved with D’Agostino in the past, D’Agostino lied to de Lesseps about how many times he went out on dates with her.“I said to Luann, ‘I want you to know, they are asking me the question when I get into the interview chair, like, how many times did you date Tom?'” Singer said of the discussions she had with de Lesseps during the season off camera. “I said, ‘I want you to know I said six times,’ and she said, ‘Why did you lie? It was only once.'”“I am not lying,” she insisted. “He lied to her and I don’t understand why. There is no reason to lie.”As revealed in the season 8 finale, de Lesseps is still determined to marry D’Agostino.“I’m not going to let a silly kiss ruin the rest of our lives,” she told ET. “This is the most exciting time of my life, getting married again after all this time. I am thrilled. I am not going to let what has happened on the show ruin the most exciting time of my life.”
The son of a former star on “The Real Housewives of Orange County” is facing nearly a dozen new criminal charges linked to an attempted-murder case.
Joshua Waring, 27, the troubled son of former reality TV personality Lauri Peterson, was initially charged in June with attempted murder for allegedly shooting a 35-year-old man in the lower torso in Costa Mesa.
Two other victims, a man and a woman, were standing nearby but not hit, prompting prosecutors to file two additional attempted-murder charges.
Waring refused to come out of his jail cell for his first court appearance, but in July he appeared in court and pleaded not guilty to the charges, court records show.
This month, prosecutors filed nine new felony charges related to the case, including discharging a firearm at a home, assault, battery, reckless driving and resisting arrest.
Waring has denied the new allegations and is scheduled to appear in court for a preliminary hearing on Sept. 28. His attorney, Ray Chen, could not be reached for comment.
After the alleged shootings, Waring led police on a chase in a stolen BMW, authorities said. After getting into a traffic accident, he took off on foot near Fourth and Terminal streets in Santa Ana and tried to hide in a store before surrendering, authorities said.
A resident of San Juan Capistrano, Waring has a history of mostly drug-related charges. He has been arrested in the past on suspicion of assault and spousal battery and has several cases pending in Orange County Superior Court.
After finally learning from Bethenny Frankel that her fiancé Tom D’Agostino, Jr. kissed another woman at the Regency Hotel, the 51-year-old Countess appeared to hit all of the five stages of grief: denial, anger, bargaining, depression, and acceptance.
But while de Lesseps eventually agreed to forgive her beau of his indiscretion – and still plans on walking down the aisle with D’Agostino, Jr. this winter – she may have nearly ran over fellow Housewife Dorinda Medley on her road to happiness.
According to Medley, de Lesseps and D’Agostino, Jr. called her days after returning from their Florida vacation – begging her to help clear D’Agostino, Jr.’s soiled name amongst the cast.
Medley recounted the call to Ramona Singer, explaining how D’Agostino, Jr. told her he planned to bring two waiters from the Regency over for an on-camera meeting so she could then “take a bullet for Luann and bring it to the rest of the girls and make it right.”
“I don’t care if he brings over the waiter, the bartender, the President of the United States – I’m not going to represent them, lie for them, or be part of this,” Medley told viewers. “I’m out.”
Medley told D’Agostino, Jr. that she wouldn’t participate in the cover up: “I said, ‘Here’s the problem, Tom – you can bring the whole of the Regency over to my apartment. You can pay them all to say what they want. But there’s a smoking gun: the pictures!”
His response was unexpected.
“He said ‘If you’re not doing that, you’re not coming to the wedding and you’re not going to be friends with Luann anymore.’ And slammed the phone down on me,” she described.
The move did not sit well with Singer, who quickly called D’Agostino, Jr. “an a——.”

“Carlton and her husband have recently separated but are living together under the same roof for the wellness of their children,” the source tells PEOPLE of the couple, who have been married for 18 years.
News of the couple’s separation, which was first reported by Entertainment Tonight, comes days after the mother of three was temporarily hospitalized on Friday following an allergic reaction. (According to the source, she was released within hours and returned to work the next day.)
The Bravo personality appeared on RHOBH season 4, which featured her relationship with husband David and her role as mom to Destiny, Mysteri and Cross.
Gebbia, who grew up in England and South Africa prior to moving to Los Angeles to pursue a career in acting, previously described her husband to Bravo as “truly [my] soul-mate.”
Looks like Bethenny Frankel‘s New Year’s Eve plans just opened up.
After sparring with Luann de Lesseps throughout most of this season of The Real Housewives of New York City, the 45-year-old Skinnygirl mogul is officially off the guest list for de Lesseps’ upcoming New Year’s Eve nuptials to financé Tom D’Agostino, Jr.
“It’s hard to invite people that tried to do you harm,” de Lesseps exclusively tells PEOPLE of inviting Frankel to her wedding.
The 51-year-old Countess previously told PEOPLE she’d wait to decide which of her fellow Housewives would receive invites until after the season 8 reunion. But after its explosive filming, it looks like Frankel will be nowhere to be found among the 250 expected guests.
Perhaps presenting de Lesseps with evidence of D’Agostino, Jr.’s infidelity was the wrong decision for Frankel. The pictures – which showed D’Agostino, Jr. kissing a former Playboy model at New York’s Regency Hotel the day before his engagement party – caused an emotional scene during the Housewives’ Florida vacation.
“It was disgusting,” de Lesseps says of Frankel’s actions. “Her handling of the situation – and I go over this at the reunion – was terrible.”
LuAnn de Lesseps has always been dense and aloof…more like super dense and super aloof. But she’ll be a total idiot if she goes through with this wedding. I mean, I haven’t been a fan of Bethenny this season, as at some point or another she’s been more than vicious towards each of the other ‘Housewives’ (except for maybe Ramona and Carole). But what woman in their right mind wouldn’t want to know that their fiancee was making out with another woman for an hour the night before their engagement party? And it’s not like Bethenny went out of her way to get the news that Tom cheated…it literally fell in her lap–then too is the fact that this sleazebag dated Ramona and slept with Sonja on and off for like decade. If LuAnn is stupid enough to marry this guy, good luck to her, but I’m willing to take bets on how long it lasts. As for Bethenny being dis-invited from the wedding? I’ll be shocked if she loses an ounce of sleep over it.
Kim Zolciak-Biermann is a happy, happy wife this week, because she got to see her husband.
The pair have been separated by distance for the past week after the former Atlanta Falcons player signed with the Buffalo Bills and flew to Rochester, NY, for training camp – a separation that has been taking an emotional toll on the reality star.
Zolciak-Biermann chronicled her visit to the Empire State via Snapchat and upon landing the Don’t Be Tardy star happily told fans that she felt “like a kid in a candy store” and couldn’t wait to get her hands on her hubby.
“I’m obsessed with my husband,” she said in one clip. “I love my husband … he just makes me so happy I feel so blessed. He’s so happy here in Buffalo.”
Once she arrived, Zolciak-Biermann told fans that the pair were spending the evening at a “little restaurant,” where they wound up indulging in good food and wine at a place on the canal.
“I’m coming from a place of girl-to-girl,” Frankel, 45, told PEOPLE Wednesday at an exclusive viewing of The Real Housewives of New York City to launch her latest Skinnygirl watermelon-lime margarita. “I’m coming from a place of girl code – that you tell another girl.”
“I do not pretend to be good friends with LuAnn, I don’t pretend to be anything to anybody,” she said. “I [was] a woman on an engagement weekend – I chose to go on that weekend, and I would do everything exactly the same way again.”
On Wednesday night’s episode, Frankel finally decided to come clean to de Lesseps, 51, that someone saw her fiancé, Tom D’Agostino, Jr., allegedly making out with a Playboy model at New York’s Regency Hotel the day before her engagement party.
“I genuinely did not know what to do,” Frankel told PEOPLE. “LuAnn is an interesting character: LuAnn has said that she had an open marriage – I know that she and her [ex-husband, Count Alexandre de Lesseps] were not faithful to one another – so I didn’t know if that was some kind of rule about relationships. I know she spent time modeling in Europe, I don’t know if she’s having a stereotypical European relationship [with D’Agostino, Jr.] – I did not know what to do.”
“I did not know the answer to, ‘Would you want to know?’ which is a question every woman asks their girlfriend: ‘Would you want to know? Should I tell you?’ ” Frankel added.
Frankel went on to explain that if de Lesseps and D’Agostino, Jr. had been married for years and had kids, she might have kept the information to herself “because it would be a lot more history and ‘not my business’ situation – but this was a one-week engagement, this was the eve of the engagement party that I found this out.”
“I had a picture dated and timestamped, and I thought, ‘How could I not tell her? How am I going to sit around here and not tell her?’ ” Frankel continued. “I chose to let the weekend play out and not just dump this on everybody at the beginning so we’d all be sobbing the whole weekend. But I was very upset … I didn’t expect to be so upset.”
