Kelly Dodd’s Husband Michael Disses Andy Cohen’s ‘Watch What Happens Live’ Show

30 Nov

DailyMail.com:

He’s one of Bravo’s head honchos and known as the Real Housewives whisperer.
So Andy Cohen was understandably ruffled after discovering that the husband of a star in one of his shows had slammed him on Twitter.
The 48-year-old responded to being ‘trashed’ by Kelly Dodd’s other half Michael when a caller asked him about it during his Radio Andy SiriusXM show on Monday.
‘Oh my God,’ Andy said as he read the tweets around. ‘It’s that moment where I find out I’m being trashed on Twitter by a Real Housewife’s husband.
‘Oh my God, thanks for telling me about this. I mean, Michael Dodd? Your wife is on my crappy show.’
Andy then learned that Michael had been referring to his late night talk show Watch What Happens Live.
‘I am very proud of my little talk show, Michael Dodd,’ he said scathingly. 
While Andy was clearly annoyed by the remarks, he also managed to laugh at Michael’s unkind words.
Michael, whose wife Kelly is on The Real Housewives Of Orange County, had slammed Andy and his latest memoir Superficial: More Adventures from the Andy Cohen Diaries.
‘AC needs to stop writing crappy books & fix his crap show,’ he wrote on Twitter earlier this month, adding that the talk show host ‘can’t recognize talent’.
Michael then clarified that he wasn’t referring to his wife’s show, writing: ‘I was talking of WWHL. amateur hour!’
At the beginning of the month, he tweeted after Kelly appeared on the show: ‘Kelly doesn’t care whether AC likes her or not. She kisses nobody’s a**.’

Lisa Vanderpump Talks Almost Not Returning to ‘Real Housewives of Beverly Hills’

30 Nov

BlastingNews.com:

Lisa Vanderpump almost quit her full-time role on “The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” ahead of the series’ 7th season. Although the restauranteur has been featured on the Bravo TV reality series since its start in 2010, she recently admitted to feeling beat up after the show’s 6th season.

In an interview for the December issue of Foxtel magazine, Vanderpump said she almost didn’t sign on for season 7 due to the mean-spirited behavior of a couple of her co-stars, who she failed to name. In a statement to the magazine, Vanderpump said she wasn’t sure if she wanted to come back to the show for its 7th season and had several discussions with production before she returned.

“A couple of the other women just didn’t stop,” Vanderpump told the magazine, adding that her co-stars were “relentless.” Continuing on, Lisa Vanderpump said season six simply wasn’t a good season and she didn’t want to return to the place where she was with the other ladies.

Following her “Real Housewives” success, Vanderpump went on to appear in her own spinoff series, “Vanderpump Rules,” which was based out of her West Hollywood, California restaurant, SUR Restaurant. She also appeared during the 2013 season of “Dancing With The Stars.”

In addition to the returning housewives, including Kyle Richards, Erika Girardi, Lisa Rinna and Eileen Davidson, Vanderpump will be seen alongside new housewife Dorit Kemsley and friend Eden Sassoon in “The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” season 7. While it is not yet known which housewives will be seen on the side of Vanderpump, she is said to have a relationship with Kemsley, which is likely a good sign. After all, she surely wouldn’t want to be beaten down for the second season in a row.

Shereé Whitfield and Kandi Burruss Stand Up to the Men in Their Lives

29 Nov

People.com:

Kandi Burruss and Shereé Whitfield suffer no fools on The Real Housewives of Atlanta. So when their respective baby daddies tried to step to them on Sunday’s all new episode, the Atlanta Housewives wasted no time putting them in their place.

For Burruss, 40, that meant reminding ex Russell “Block” Spencer that his own actions had caused their daughter, Riley Burruss, to push away from him.

The two had a tense phone conversation — which began when Spencer called Kandi after years of not speaking, telling her he was trying to mend fences.

“I’m tryin’ make up with you, see what I’m saying, so I can see Riley,” he said. “I just need to sit down with you too. Like, I just don’t want no bad blood going on so we can co-parent the right way. How can we start over?”

Kandi wasn’t incredibly open to Spencer’s sudden suggestion of wanting to be involved in Riley’s life — especially after his history of not showing up for Riley when he said he would. “How do you co-parent a kid that’s almost 14 years old? That you’ve never co-parented? No. It doesn’t work like that,” she told viewers in a confessional.

She told Spencer to direct his desire for a relationship with Riley to Riley herself. “At this point, Riley is old enough to say whether or not she really wants to have a relationship with her dad,” she explained earlier in the episode. “Right now, she ain’t feeling it. So I ain’t going to push and I’m not going to diss the relationship.”

But Spencer told Burruss his attempts to contact Riley had gone unanswered. “I’ve been calling y’all — y’all ain’t been calling me back,” he said. “I’m not about to chase y’all to communicate with me. I’m not chasing nobody, you understand what I’m saying?”

————————————

Whitfield had similar financial struggles with her ex, Bob Whitfield. The two officially divorced in 2007 after 7 years of marriage and 14 years together. But despite being court-ordered to maintain Shereé’s mortgage, household expenses and child support — Bob did not.

They’re in a good place now, co-parenting after 9 years of battling and legal squabbles. But Shereé said Bob has never said he’s sorry for the “bad place” he took her to during their split.

“Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” star Brandi Glanville is under fire for her scandalous take on the holiday season.

The 44-year-old reality TV star thought it would be funny to pose above Jesus in a San Diego nativity scene, where she posed as if she was giving birth to the son of God.

Glanville instantly offended hundreds of commenters — both religious and not — for her post.

“You managed to offend practically everyone with this post. Are you stupid or something?” one user wrote.

Another Facebook commenter added, “You look like a nice person, and that’s why I like your page.

But this is so offensive and out of control, really make me rethink if you are crazy, or only looking for attention. Grow up!!!!!!”

After the “Drinking and Dating” author started to come under fire, she took to Twitter to respond to the backlash.

People need to chill the f–k out and take a joke,” she wrote.

Cynthia Bailey Confirms Kim Zolciak Return To ‘Real Housewives of Atlanta’

28 Nov

Inquisitr.com:

Could Season 9 of Real Housewives of Atlanta finally mark the return of Kim Zolciak-Biermann?

Kim left RHOA during Season 5, and rumors of her return have run rampant for years. But according to a new report from Celeb Dirty Laundry, Zolciak is slated to return to the show during Season 9.

Whether Kim will return to the show for good or for a one-time appearance is unclear. In an interview with People, cast member Cynthia Bailey confirmed that Zolciak-Biermann will make an appearance during the housewarming party of her long-time friend, Shereé Whitfield.

Of a full-time return for Kim, Bailey said, “I don’t know what is going to happen in the future,” but Cynthia did tell People that she would welcome Kim back to the show with open arms.

“All the original cast from the Housewives, I always take my hat out to them because they started the whole thing. Without them, we wouldn’t be here. So hey — if it’s gonna make the show better and you want to jump on the team and help keep this show no. 1, then by all means, come.”

The report from Celeb Dirty Laundry made it sound as if Kim Zolciak-Biermann may return to the show for good, despite the fact that she and her family already have their own reality show called Tardy for the Party.

Meghan Edmonds Shares First Photo of Baby Girl Aspen and Her Birth Story

28 Nov

EOnline.com:

It was a very happy Thanksgiving for Meghan King Edmonds and husband Jim Edmonds.

After more than a full day of natural labor, the 32-year-old Real Housewives of Orange County star gave birth Thursday to daughter Aspen King Edmonds. Meghan announced the news Friday and posted the first public photo of their little girl on Instagram Saturday.

“Our perfect Aspen King Edmonds made her grand entrance on Thanksgiving Day, November 24, 2016, 6lbs 11oz,” Meghan wrote.

Meghan called her husband “incredible” and said he never left her side while she was in labor.

“I could not have labored naturally without him and my doula,” she wrote. “Jimmy was a constant source of support through every contraction, each blood-curdling scream and each time I told him I thought I was dying and couldn’t do it anymore. He ran baths, helped me walk, helped me breathe, held my hands, essentially endured the burden of my pain for all 22 hours.”

Meghan said Aspen is “a healthy, strong happy baby who loves breastfeeding and already holding her head up!”

“I feel like I worked out for a week straight and my throat hurts from yelling but I survived unscathed without so much as a tiny tear and now I feel like the strongest warrior on the planet (and Jimmy thinks so too),” she said.

What Triggered Lisa Rinna’s Twitter Rant Against United Airlines?

26 Nov

BravoTV.com:

It’s not unusual for The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills‘ Lisa Rinna to take to social media when she has something to say. But this time, her words were stern and serious after somebody apparently provoked a protective mama’s rage. 

She tweeted at United Airlines to say, “You were very rude @united to my kid and I am not happy about it. Kindness at all times. We as parents are nervous when our kids travel!” 

The airline responded promptly, requesting a DM with more info. 

Hopefully the parties can resolve the issue swiftly behind the scenes. But Lisa clarified why she was quick to react in this case — and it’s something any mom can relate to. “I can handle it,” she wrote. “But don’t f*** with my kids or my family!” 

Naturally, Lisa’s not the first celebrity to air travel-related grievances on social media. Karlie Kloss recently took to both Snapchat and to Twitter to rage against Philippines Airlines for some unspecified customer service offense. And Bethenny Frankel took a more mild approach during some hotel and flight issues on her recent Mykonos trip.

Jill Zarin Confirms Husband Bobby’s Thyroid Cancer Is Back

25 Nov

PageSix.com:

It will be a bittersweet Thanksgiving for Jill and Bobby Zarin this year. As the former “Real Housewives of New York City” star revealed Monday, her husband’s thyroid cancer has returned. 

“He’s getting the best care,” a tearful Zarin told E! News at the Angel Ball in New York. “We have a great team … He had thyroid cancer that spread to the lungs but it’s all going to be good.” 

Bobby, 70, was first diagnosed in June 2009. While he had his thyroid removed and underwent radioactive iodine treatment, doctors found the cancer had spread to his lungs during a checkup at the Princeton Longevity Center in 2015. 

Jill, 52, added she’ll continue to stand by her spouse’s side through this trying time.“You have to live to live because we want to be here to raise money for cancer research,” the reality star shared. “We want to live our lives to the fullest … We don’t want to miss anything while Bobby’s healthy and strong and we’re just going to fight it.” 

Though Bobby’s cancer has spread to his brain, the Zarin Fabrics founder is expected to undergo gamma radiation treatment in Houston next week.

Bethenny Frankel’s Ex-Husband Jason Hoppy Says He Needs a Relationship with Her Boyfriend

25 Nov

TMZ.com:

Bethenny Frankel‘s ex-husband is bristling over threats by her current boyfriend to sue him for trashing her in emails, saying he’s forced to interact with the BF because the guy’s constantly around his daughter.

Jason Hoppy fired off a letter to the lawyer for Dennis Shields, who threatened to sue Hoppy claiming he was sending a flurry of disgusting, harassing emails to Bethenny and cc’ing him.

Hoppy, who Shields claimed sent emails calling Bethenny ugly, old and irrelevant, never specifically disputed the content of what he sent, but he did say, “As a concerned father, I often have to contact others when I cannot reach my daughter through her mother.”

Hoppy goes on to say as long as Shields is in his daughter’s life, “I have no choice but to have some type of relationship with him.”

Short story … Shields threatened to sue Hoppy if he didn’t stop the emails, so it seems like they’re gonna have a date in court.

Report Says Danielle Staub Is Returning to ‘RHONJ’…But Only As a ‘Friend of the Housewives’

24 Nov

PerezHilton.com:

Make new friends, but keep the old — one is silver, and the other… is a prostitution whore! 

Real Housewives of New Jersey infamously waited an entire year to film Season 7 in order to keep Teresa Giudice in the cast, but the results were still a little more boring than we would have liked. 

Luckily for fans of all things Bravo, however, Season 8 already sounds twice as entertaining… because we’re hearing Danielle Staub herself will officially be back on the show next time around!!!

Our casting suspicions were confirmed by Real Mr. Housewife on Wednesday, whose industry insiders claim the mother-of-two will be back for the first time since her devastating Season 2 departure, saying:

“At this point, the show is not interested in bringing her on as a full-time Housewife. Rather, they see Danielle returning in a role of a friend of the Housewives.” We’ll take whatever guaranteed drama we can get!

We’re hoping Dani’s demotion to “Friend of” will play out similarly to Claudia Jordan role’s on RHOA – getting bumped up to main cast after proving herself within the first few episodes.
