Cynthia Bailey’s Ex Peter Thomas says that Phaedra Parks Always Knew About Apollo Nida’s Criminal Ways

31 Dec

The drama never stops on “The Real Housewives of Atlanta” and now Phaedra Parks is part of it once again. Peter Thomas is speaking out and saying that Phaedra actually knew all about the illegal things that Apollo was doing. Of course, Phaedra has never admitted to knowing about what he was doing. All About the Tea shared the details about what Peter had to say.

Peter Thomas is Cynthia Bailey’s ex, and he reached out to a radio station in Charlotte called Power 98 FM. While talking to them, Peter talked about he feels like Phaedra is fake. It is very obvious that he is not a fan of hers. He says that Phaedra has two sides. One of them is her great religious side, and he said that her other side is a total freak. He is also saying that the rumors that Phaedra Parks had an affair with someone named Mr. Chocolate are totally true. He even says that he saw the proof on Apollo’s phone.

While on the radio show, Peter Thomas wasn’t holding back about calling Phaedra out. Peter even says that Apollo was faithful to Phaedra and if he hadn’t been then he would have been caught for sure. 

The shocking thing that Peter had to share was that he says that Phaedra Parks allegedly knew all about the illegal stuff that Apollo was doing and basically told him not to get caught doing it. As Peter said, Phaedra is a lawyer. He explained that he feels like there was no way that Phaedra couldn’t know that Apollo was committing fraud when he was bringing home all kinds of new stuff, but didn’t have a paystub to explain where it was coming from. He says that Phaedra has only gone to see Apollo twice. One time for him to sign their divorce papers and the other time was because the network made her take the kids to see him according to Peter. He isn’t holding much back.

One of the ‘Real Housewives of Beverly Hills’ Abusing Xanax ?

31 Dec

Following the season 7 premiere of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, In Touch has exclusively learned that one series cast member will be forced to come clean about her drug addiction this season.

A source revealed to In Touch that the cast member — either Eileen Davidson, Erika Girardi, Dorit Kemsley, Kyle Richards, Lisa Rinna, Eden Sassoon, or Lisa Vanderpump — is approached on camera by her co-stars, as they believe she’s been abusing Xanax.

“People pop Xanax when they’re stressed out. And let’s face it, there has never been a shortage of drama when it comes to the ladies of Beverly Hills,” a source exclusively revealed. 

Further, the source adds there will be “major fireworks” surrounding her addiction, but “the other housewives will help her deal with this.” 

Kyle’s sister Kim Richards, who was a former cast member on the series, previously opened up about her drug use with Dr. Phil. In addition to taking unprescribed pain killers, she admitted she smokes marijuana “every once in a while.”

Kandi Burruss Slams Phaedra Parks for Being ‘Full of S**t’

30 Dec

Well, it wouldn’t be a Housewives fight if the person the fight is about isn’t around to defend herself. 

ET has your exclusive first look at Sunday night’s all-new episode of The Real Housewives of Atlanta, which finds Sheree Whitfield seemingly calling some sort of “Come to Jesus” meeting between Kandi Burruss and Porsha Williams. 

The set-up: Porsha does not agree with how Kandi has been talking about Phaedra Parks, alleging that Kandi has been spreading rumors about Phaedra cheating on her incarcerated husband, Apollo Nida. (The couple has since divorced.) 
“I didn’t say the word ‘cheated,’” Kandi claims. “I said she was talking to other people before Apollo went to jail.” 

“That’s saying that she cheated,” Porsha fires back. “I mean, if your best girlfriend seems like she’s confirming that to the streets…” 

“That’s why I am not her best girlfriend, first and foremost,” Kandi says, cutting Porsha off. “But that ain’t stop her from doing s**t to me. She’s not gonna keep running her mouth behind closed doors when people don’t know she’s talking. Don’t think that s**t don’t get back.” 

“I’ve never heard her say anything that I felt was below the belt,” Porsha says. “Like, ‘You cheated on your husband and were damn near married to somebody else.’ I ain’t never heard her say something like that.”

Luann de Lesseps Says Upcoming Wedding Number 2 Will Be Very Different

30 Dec

We all know Luann de Lesseps is excited to walk down the aisle with Thomas D’Agostino, Jr. And although it’ll be her second marriage, it doesn’t make it any less meaningful.

But, be sure, the two wedding ceremonies will be very different. Luann explains how her 2017 wedding will go down.

“My first wedding, we eloped…I wore jeans, a turtleneck, and a blazer and that’s the way we wanted it to be,” she explains of her 1993 marriage to French entrepreneur Alexandre De Lesseps, the one that labeled her a countess.

“We wanted it to be very casual and it was just the two of us, so this time around, I want to have my family around,” she says.

The two share kids Victoria and Noel together and divorced in 2009.

“And so, that’s very special to me. Having my children, and I think when you have children, it’s important to show the example of even though we’re not together and we are divorced, we are still their parents and we’ll always love them,” she says. “And so, what better to show your children that, even though you’re not together any more, you can still get along together. I think it’s so important, I think it’s so healthy…and I think it’s you know, parents have to set an example like that, because we are parents nonetheless.”

Luann says her kids love Tom, so they are all one big happy family, including her ex.

“The kids like Tom, so they like him very much,” she says.

Vicki Gunvalson Reveals Season 12 ‘RHOC’ Status, Teases New Co-Star

29 Dec

What would a season of “Real Housewives of Orange County” be without Vicki Gunvalson? Fans may never know.

The self-proclaimed O.G. of the O.C. appears to be returning to the Bravo reality series for Season 12. Her status was unclear following two contentious years with the franchise, but Vicki’s been a staple on “RHOC” for more than 10 years — why stop now? The insurance mogul seemingly confirmed her return in an Instagram post. She appeared in a photo with Brianna Stanko, who it seems may be joining “RHOC” in Season 12.

In her caption, Vicki shared that she was “having so much fun” at dinner with Brianna. She told her 675,000 followers that the blonde beauty had only recently moved to Orange County, California, from Atlanta, asking that they “give her some love.” Vicki used the hashtags “#rhocinthemaking” and “#season12,” which many took as a sign that she planned to appear in the upcoming season of the popular Bravo reality series.

Vicki also hinted at the fate of Kelly Dodd, who caused quite a stir during Season 11 — her first with “RHOC.” She gave a shout out to the controversial reality star in her Instagram caption, adding that both she and Brianna were “missing” her. Kelly was one of Vicki’s only friends during Season 11 of “RHOC” after the pair were ostracized by the rest of the cast for their questionable behavior.

Kelly came under fire from a majority of the cast for her foul mouth and quick temper during her first season on “RHOC.” Most notably, she feuded with Tamra Judge and Shannon Beador — taking a dig about her husband’s affair during a cast trip to Ireland. Kelly was also not well-received by Heather Dubrow and Meghan King Edmonds, who introduced her to the rest of the “RHOC” cast.

Dorit Kemsley On Why She Needs So Many Nannies

28 Dec

When Season 7 of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills premiered on Dec. 6, many long-time viewers immediately took note of the new face among the crowd of familiar uber-glam (and uber-dramatic) housewives. Dorit Kemsley was introduced on the series’ latest season premiere as the wife of Paul “PK” Kemsley, an English businessman. Right off the bat, Dorit’s somewhat surprising number of nannies was highlighted by Bravo as one of the notable things about the fashionable socialite. But exactly how much do Dorit Kemsley’s nannies earn?

Information about the exact salaries that Dorit’s nannies make isn’t widely available, but as all parents know, quality childcare doesn’t come cheap — particularly for around-the-clock care and for very young infants. Given Dorit’s busy multiple careers, it’s no wonder that she’s hired several childcare professionals to watch her children so that she can work — after all, fathers are free to work full-time without judgment, and why shouldn’t mothers be allowed to do the same?

Dorit and PK have two young children, which includes their son Jagger and their daughter Phoenix. Dorit’s rather large childcare and house staff was one of the first things that Bravo mentioned about the newest housewife addition, in their sneak peek at the currently airing season of the long-running RHOBH. But Dorit was quick to address and defuse any shade that might’ve been thrown at her about the seemingly excessive amount of help her family relies on.

“Currently, my staff includes Peggy, who’s baby nurse, Neila, Jagger’s main nanny, and then I’ve got a few nannies for Jagger and Phoenix—to fill in—three full-time housekeepers, and Tiffany, who’s my husband’s assistant,” Dorit explained to E!. “For those who will criticize me for having a big staff,” she clarified, “I’m not exactly lounging in bed eating bonbons.”

While that certainly might seem like a lot of extra hands, if the Kemsley’s can afford the help, why not get it? Based on Dorit’s Instagram account, which is filled with pictures of both parents doting on their children, it’s clear that the couple spends plenty of quality time with their babies.

Gretchen Rossi Sued By Her Own Lawyers

27 Dec

Gretchen Rossi may have to lawyer up somewhere else after she stiffed a law firm for hundreds of thousands of dollars … according to a new lawsuit.

Brown & Charbonneau, LLP — a SoCal business and family firm — just filed suit against the ex-‘Real Housewives of Orange County’ star, claiming she left ’em hanging with an invoice of about $285,000 in late 2013 … and then another for $16,000 a few months later.

Gretchen’s camp tells us she hired B&C to work on a harassment case and plans to pay her unpaid balance once she collects in an unrelated legal matter.  She chalks it up to a “misunderstanding.”

Stephanie Hollman Talks Conquering Domestic Violence and Enjoying Holidays with Children

27 Dec

Having a place in “The Real Housewives of Dallas” cast has changed Stephanie Hollman’s world. The reality TV star grew up in a small sheltered town in Oklahoma and told CBS that she’s never experienced drama before the franchise — and there’s tons to gossip about when the Lone Star state’s socialites come together. But when the cameras aren’t around, Hollman’s true passions shine. CBS spoke to Stephanie Hollman about how she’s tackling domestic violence.

How has being on “The Real Housewives of Dallas” changed your life?
It changed my life in every aspect. I’ve grown more in the past year and a half than I have in my whole life. I grew up very sheltered and I never experienced drama or conflict with other people. When you live in a small town, there’s only so many girls. You have to be kind to everyone because it is such a small town. 

Was there a particular moment on the show when you realized this is now your life?
Marie’s cocktail party when LeeAnne threw the glass. I thought, “Oh my goodness, this is not good.” That’s when it became real. She was upset at me and it scared me. I didn’t know how to take it and I didn’t know how to reconcile everything.  

What can you tell us about season 2?
It’s going to be great. We are a little over halfway done. I think going in for the second time you know what to expect. That can be a good and bad thing because it can be a little scary. The worst case scenario is that you’ll get some mean tweets. But I cannot wait! 

I know you’re really passionate about philanthropy. How did you get involved in that?
Before I met my husband [Travis], I worked in social services. I worked for a homeless pregnancy center in Oklahoma and that’s where I met a lot of my clients. Most of them left a violent relationship and needed to seek shelter for both them and their unborn babies. So I’ve always worked with women dealing with domestic violence. 

My passion really came after I met my husband and I had my first son. I decided I really wanted to be an advocate for domestic violence and have my family take a stand. I feel it’s something no one really wants to talk about. It’s not like being an advocate for breast cancer awareness where many people come together. Domestic violence is uncomfortable. With this opportunity, I want to be a voice and stand up. As a community, it’s something that we should not accept and not tolerate.

I want my boys to know they have to be respectful and kind. That situation is not okay for them or any of their friends to be in.

Sheree Whitfield Claims Her Neighbors Are Racist

26 Dec

Real Housewives of Atlanta star Sheree Whitfield, 46, is alleging her neighbors are racist after she was fined $1,000 for not getting the proper permits to throw her October housewarming party.
Last month Whitfield appeared in court and was fined $1,000 by Sandy Springs, Georgia and put on unsupervised probation for 18 months over her October 28 ‘Chateau Sheree’ bash, which was filmed for the hit Bravo show. The production company was also fined $1,000.
She told IHeartRadio this week, according to AJC, that her neighbors ‘are p***ed off that a little black girl was able to move into the neighborhood.’
The party, which ended more than five years of construction headaches and plotlines about the custom built home, was captured in photos by
Photos showed fellow castmates Kenya Moore, Kandi Burruss, former castmember Kim Zolciak Biermann and husband Kroy, and Peter Bailey, the estranged husband of castmate Cynthia all in attendance, as well as massive film production crews and crowded streets of double parked cars. 
Speaking to the Domenick Nati Show Whitfield said the situation was ‘blown out of proportion,’ saying ‘I am not happy with the city I live in. I pay taxes like everybody else.’
She said other people in her neighborhood threw parties and no one complained. 
The neighbors, she said, ‘are p***ed off that a little black girl was able to move into the neighborhood and build a home that’s bigger than some of theirs. They are p***ed for whatever reason. I totally don’t think it was fair.’

Sonja Morgan and Her New Boyfriend are ‘Starting To Get Real’

26 Dec

It’s getting serious between “Real Housewives of NYC” star Sonja Morgan and nightlife impresario Rocco Ancarola.

“We’re liking each other a lot,” Ancarola told me. “It’s starting to get real.”

After being set up on a blind date last summer by fellow Bravo “Housewife” Jules Wainstein, Ancarola took Morgan to his friend Leonardo DiCaprio’s environmental benefit in St-Tropez. She took him to a hockey game at Barclays Center.

Last week, they went together to a holiday party thrown by p.r. guru R. Couri Hay at his Upper West Side townhouse, co-hosted by actress Leesa Rowland.

“Sonja’s really fun,” said South African-born Ancarola, whose clubs included Boom and Pink Elephant. “We’re taking it one step at a time. We’ll see where it goes.”

Ancarola was surprised how many people watch the show in Europe and ask Sonya for selfies: “Everywhere she goes, people recognize her.”

Erika Girardi Loses Underwear and Gains New RHOBH Enemy: Dorit Kemsley

25 Dec

Dorit Kemsley, the newest Housewife on the The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, has spent much of her three episodes on the hit Bravo show so far boasting about how well-traveled she is. But while she’s seen Paris, and she’s seen France — Kemsley definitely hasn’t seen Erika Girardi’s underpants!

That’s because Girardi isn’t wearing any.

On Tuesday’s all new episode, Dorit, 40, found herself face to face with a whole new side of Girardi, 45, when the singer showed to a pre-drinks gathering for a white party being held at one of Vanderpump’s restaurants wearing a stunning short designer dress and no underwear.

“It doesn’t look good under my dress,” Girardi said, defending her decision to go commando. “Why would I break up a beautiful design with a panty line?” Really?”

Her au naturale fashion choice was fine until Lisa Vanderpump jokingly put her hand up Girardi’s skirt, looking for a pair of underpants to donate to Housewife Kyle Richards — whose white underwear was showing through her white outfit. The motion caused Girardi to “flash the puss,” as it were.

“Don’t put your hands up my skirt unless you want to see what’s up there,” Girardi sassed. “Don’t push me Ms. Vanderpump — I’ll take you there. I told you that.”

While everyone was laughing at the time, Kemsley didn’t seem to be later on.

The next day while at home, she and her husband Paul “PK” Kemsley discussed the peek-a-boo moment. And though Dorit admitted she first thought it was “no big deal” since “we all have done without any underwear,” she questioned whether Girardi had deliberately flashed everyone – especially Paul, who was seated directly across from her.

Porsha Williams Fires Back at Ex-Husband Kordell Stewart: ‘Don’t Blame Me for Buck Naked Video’

25 Dec

Porsha Williams says Kordell Stewart is DEAD WRONG for insinuating she had anything to do with the release of a naked video featuring the ex-NFL star … saying the whole thing smells like a publicity stunt.

We broke the story … Kordell says a naked video of him was stolen and released without his permission and he pointed the finger at his ex-wife, Porsha, claiming she had something to do with it.

But we just spoke with Porsha — and she ain’t havin’ it.

“This is obviously a publicity stunt that Kordell and maybe one of his partners in crime came up with.”

“The truth is I have not spoken with Kordell Stewart since the day I signed our divorce decree. I have nothing to do with Kordell ‘TOOTING’ his derrière to the camera for the world to see.”

She adds, “I would suggest Kordell find another hobby and wish him a very Happy New Year.”

Lawyer Says Teresa Giudice ‘Is Thriving’ One Year After Prison

24 Dec

On Dec. 23, 2015, Teresa Giudice walked out of the Federal Correctional Institution in Danbury, Connecticut, a free woman after serving time for nearly a year on fraud charges.

One year later, the star of Bravo’s The Real Housewives of New Jersey “is thriving,” her attorney James J. Leonard Jr. tells PEOPLE.

“She is still so happy to be home and to be there for her girls,” adds a source close to Giudice.

Still, this is the first Christmas without her husband of 17 years, Joe, who this past March began serving a 41-month sentence at the Federal Correctional Institution at Fort Dix, New Jersey, for fraud and tax evasion charges. (He and Teresa were found guilty in October 2014.)

“She misses Joe a lot,” says Leonard.

Especially during Christmastime – her favorite holiday. She has spent the last month decorating the house and shopping for gifts, says the source.
