Erika Girardi Owns Her Meltdown: ‘I Took the Real Low Road’

31 Mar

People.com:

“Ice Queen” Erika Girardi shocked Real Housewives of Beverly Hills fans last week when she broke down in tears and lashed out at Eileen Davidson over an unfortunately ill-worded analogy during an already-tense dinner in Hong Kong.

But on Tuesday’s all-new episode, the 45-year-old Dancing with the Stars contestant pulled a Lisa Rinna and “owned it” — apologizing to Davidson days after returning to the 90210.

“It’s important for me that she hears that I really, really apologize for snapping at her in Hong Kong,” Girardi told viewers. “We have a great friendship and she’s done a lot for me and I want to make sure that she knows it.”

“I had a meltdown,” Girardi explained. “I am human. I thought about this many times. It just sucks because I don’t want to be that way.”

In Hong Kong, Davidson, 57, made the mistake of trying to reason Girardi into forgiving rival Dorit Kemsley by suggesting Kemsley hadn’t “committed some horrible heinous crime.”

“I don’t think [Dorit] really understood what she was getting into,” Davidson said. “I don’t think she’s evil. She’s already saying ‘sorry’ — what do you want then? There’s nothing she can say or do that can make it okay? She didn’t kill your child.”

That last line was the straw for Girardi, whose 24-year-old son, Tommy Zizzo, is a police officer.

“Don’t every bring up killing my child again because my child could get killed,” Girardi shot back through tears. “Your kid doesn’t put on a uniform every day and night and put his life out on the line for people he doesn’t know. Don’t ever talk about my f—ing kid again. Shut the f— up. You don’t know what I deal with every night.”

Kenya Moore Receives Temporary Restraining Order Against Matt Jordan

31 Mar

EOnline.com:

Kenya Moore‘s relationship with Matt Jordan has taken another dramatic turn.

E! News can confirm the Real Housewives of Atlanta star was granted a temporary restraining order against her ex-boyfriend.

According to court documents obtained by E! News, the certified trainer must stay 200 yards away from Kenya and have zero contact with her by phone, e-mail or any means of communication.

In the original petition for a protective order, Kenya and her legal team accused Matt of calling the Bravo star “up to 30 times a day” between September 2016 and February 2017.

They also accuse Matt of telling Kenya’s friend last week that his ex was going to “get what she deserves.”

Bethenny Frankel Reveals That She’s Single

30 Mar

People.com:

Bethenny Frankel is focusing on herself these days.

PEOPLE Now caught up with the Real Housewives of New York City star, who opened up about what’s been going on in her dating life since she joked on Snapchat that she was giving up sex for Lent.

“When is Lent over?” she demanded. “How long is Lent? Is it almost over?”

“Three more weeks? I don’t know if I’ll make it,” she quipped.

But all jokes aside, Frankel, 46, said she’s stuck to her promise so far, confirming that everything is “so far so good.”

“I’m on a good run, but I don’t plan on making it,” she added.

Frankel also took a moment to set the record straight on her current relationship status. (The Bravo star recently told PEOPLE she chose to spend Valentine’s Day alone, despite being involved with New York banker Dennis Shields, whom she’s been seeing since last year.)

“I like my life now,” she said. “I like men and I am not in a serious relationship. I’m liking this! I don’t know that I’ve ever really, really known how to date and be single like this.”

“I’m not stopping the car unless there’s something really great to get out for,” she added.

Jules Wainstein’s Divorce Reveals She and Husband Failed to File Taxes for Years

29 Mar

NYDailyNews.com:

The lifestyle of a “Real Housewives of New York” star wasn’t in fact so real — she and her now estranged husband failed to file taxes for years and mysteriously invested money in a Hamptons home they didn’t even own, it emerged Tuesday.

The contentious divorce between Jules and Michael Wainstein escalated in Manhattan Supreme Court with the revelation that the couple failed to file taxes between 2008 and 2015.

A portion of the returns, which Michael recently filed with the IRS, were introduced as part of his argument that Justice Michael Katz had ordered him to pay his estranged wife too much money for child support and an apartment.

“My client has not been making the type of money they’ve sort of projected publicly,” Michael’s attorney Morghan Richardson said. “The amount he’s paid the defendant in just the last few months eclipses his annual income.”

Those recent payments include $25,000 from the sale of a Mercedes, as well as $12,000 for child support, per a judge’s order.

Despite the hefty sums, the electricity was cut at Jules Wainstein’s home because she’d burned through the money without paying Con Edison, Richardson said.

Jules’ attorney, Allan Mayefsky, countered that Michael was responsible for paying the bill and insisted he frequently changed his story about income.

Dorit Kemsley Is ‘Over’ #Pantygate

29 Mar

USWeekly.com:

Letting it go. The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills’ Dorit Kemsley spoke exclusively with Us Weekly about her first season on the hit Bravo series, her feud with costar Erika “Jayne” Girardi and why she is more than ready to move on from #Pantygate.

It’s been a while since a rookie Housewife has made such a splash in any franchise of the beloved show. But it wasn’t hard for Kemsley, 40 — with her culturally ambiguous accent and friendship with Boy George — to steal some of the attention away from RHOBH vets Lisa Vanderpump, Kyle Richards, Eileen Davidson, Lisa Rinna and last season’s new girl, Girardi, 45.

“I really didn’t have any expectations going into this. I didn’t know how it was going to be,” Kemsley — who had watched early seasons of RHOBH but took a break when she became a mom to son Jagger, 3, and daughter Phoenix, 13 months, with husband Paul “PK” Kemsley — tells Us of her participation in season 7. “With me, what you see is what you get. Welcome into our lives. I open the front door and I let everybody in. Right, wrong or other, at the very least, I am who I am. I can’t be anything other than myself.”

As viewers saw on the Tuesday, December 27, episode of the reality show, the Connecticut native (who has also lived in New York City and London, among other major cities around the world) was simply being herself when she gifted Girardi a pair of underwear during a girls’ day out with all the ‘wives. According to Dorit, it was a lighthearted way of acknowledging the “Pretty Mess” singer’s decision to go commando in a skintight mini dress at Vanderpump’s White Party, apparently flashing her lady parts to her costars, including PK. Though she initially seemed amused by Dorit’s gesture, Girardi ended up turning on the fashion designer and the two have butted heads ever since. Their conflict came to a head on the Tuesday, March 21, episode of RHOBH when #Pantygate was brought up yet again at an explosive group dinner in Hong Kong.

“I am honestly so past the drama of it all,” says Dorit, who, as documented on the Bravo mainstay, has apologized to Girardi multiple times. “I never thought it would escalate into what it became.”

New Real Housewives of Cheshire Series WILL Go Ahead Despite Bombshell Allegations About Ester Dee

27 Mar

ManchesterEveningNews.com:

TV bosses have confirmed that the new series of The Real Housewives of Cheshire WILL go ahead as planned on Monday night – despite bombshell allegations made about the show’s newest star.

New Real Housewife Ester Dee is at the centre of the drama after her “secret” husband John Temple came forward to state he had no idea she was filming the show – with another man at her side, Cheshire-based property millionaire, Rob Lloyd.

Fellow millionaire John spoke out in The Sun on Sunday about Ester, who he says he married in 2015, and claims that he bankrolls the Czech-born blonde’s lavish lifestyle.

But in publicity interviews for the show, Ester, 32, stated that she is engaged to her fiance Rob, 53, who she lives with in Macclesfield, after meeting him in 2012.

Former au pair Ester has a two-year-old daughter Bertie and is now a “full time housewife” in Cheshire.

She told the M.E.N. last week how she loves to drive her Rolls Royce around Wilmslow and Hale to “check out the competition” and said she finds “shopping orgasmic” with a collection of 500 pairs of shoes and 200 handbags.

But husband John, who lives in Leamington Spa, told The Sun of his “shock” that she is appearing in the show – which he only found out when the series was filming a special in Dubai – and she rang to ask him for a £5,000 ring.

TMZ.com:

NeNe Leakes knows ‘Real Housewives of Atlanta’ producers would never say how much money Kim Zolciak is getting for her comeback, but NeNe thinks it’s gotta be less than her booty.

We got NeNe at LAX Thursday where she told us there’s a reason she should get a bigger check. It’s funny … Kim had her own reasons for thinking she’s a bigger draw.

As we previously reported … negotiations are underway for both NeNe and Kim to return as full-time cast members on season 10. It already seems like it’s gonna be worth it.

Kim DePaola Speaks Out About Double Homicide

26 Mar

FoxNews.com:

Real Housewives of New Jersey” star Kim DePaola — whose Audi became the center of an execution-style double homicide in Paterson last week — believes the murders were gang-related, and not tied to the mob.

“The mob doesn’t do this,” DePaola told Radar Online Monday. “It would be gang-related. Maybe they pissed someone off and they’re making a statement. I hope they find these savages.”

The bodies of the two men were found shot and burned beyond recognition early last Friday inside the torched white Audi S-line, which is registered to DePaola.

DePaola said the car was being used at the time by Aaron Anderson, a friend of her son Chris Camiscioli.

“People are saying my car was tied to the murders, my car was not tied to anyone,” DePaola said. “Aaron Anderson, a friend of my son, was supposed to drop my son off at the airport, park the car and not use it. But he used the car and then this horrific accident happened.”

The mom, who appeared on the Bravo show from 2010 to 2013, said she was home and Camiscioli was in California at the time of the murders.

“The cops never thought I had anything to do with it,” DePaola, 56, said. “This would’ve happened in my car or not.”
