Kyle Richards Opens Up About Her Struggle with Fibromyalgia

30 Nov

BravoTV.com:

After seven seasons on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, you would think we would know just about everything about Kyle Richards at this point. However, we’re still getting some major revelations about Kyle’s life even today. 

One thing we just learned about Kyle is that she has been struggling with fibromyalgia for years. Kyle has briefly talked about her condition in her Bravotv.com blogs, but she opened up about her chronic pain in depth on the latest episode of The Healer, which follows Charlie Goldsmith, who uses energy to help heal others. 

Kyle told Charlie that she first started getting this pain as her mother, Kathleen Richards, battled breast cancer. “My mom was diagnosed with breast cancer, but as my mom was sick and taking care of her I started feeling really sick myself. I went to a lot of different doctors and they would say, ‘Oh, you’re just depressed because your mom died.’ And I was like, ‘I’m just not buying that it’s only I’m depressed. Why am I having all these crazy symptoms?'” Kyle recalled on The Healer. “Then I was talking with someone and she said, ‘You have fibromyalgia. Everything you just said is fibromyalgia.’ So I went to this doctor who specializes in it, and he asked me a lot of questions. All of a sudden I felt like I had an answer and I felt better because it caused so much anxiety.”

When Charlie started to use energy to help heal Kyle in the episode, she said that she felt a “warm, tingling sensation going through the area that bothers me most,” which is her neck and shoulders. 

Kyle shared how much it would mean to her to finally be rid of this chronic pain. “That would be amazing to think, you know, that I could just be free of these symptoms and my husband [Mauricio Umansky] would never have to hear about it again,” Kyle said.

Danielle Staub Claims Teresa Giudice Cheating Rumors Are “Not True”

30 Nov

Life&Style.com:

Fans of Real Housewives of New Jersey could have never predicted that Danielle Staub would be defending her one-time enemy Teresa Giudice when it comes to infidelity rumors, but it’s happening. Teresa is being accused of cheating on her husband Joe, who is currently serving a 41-month sentence in prison. 

However, Danielle tells Life & Style exclusively that her co-star is innocent. “As for those rumors, they are absolutely 100% NOT true,” she said adamantly. During Season 8 of the Bravo reality series, troublemaker Kim DePaola told Teresa’s BFF Dolores Catania and Siggy Flicker that she had rekindled an old flame — and that did not sit well with the new and improved NamasTre. 

“Not f–king true!” Teresa screamed at Dolores. “You should’ve f–king stuck up for me!” In a recent interview with Life & Style, Teresa, 44, reassured fans that she was not planning on leaving her husband and father of four daughters. When asked if Joe, 44, was worried about the rumors she said, “I don’t know, that’s a question you would have to ask him, but he doesn’t have anything to worry about.”

As for her mended friendship with Danielle, who she once famously called a “prostitution whore” before flipping a table, fans can expect an apology to happen on RHONJ real soon. “In the upcoming episode you will get your answers to that as you have already seen a few highlights with my daughter [Christine], involving that,” Danielle said. “You will see later in the season when we go to Milan. Teresa and I had a beautiful experience where hundreds of pigeons surrounded us and it was beautiful as we were both able to relate that to the passing of our mothers.

Kenya Moore Did Not Say Anything “Transphobic” Towards Kim Zolciak

28 Nov

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ilaSwO2fx40]

Here is yet another example of why most people hate this politically-correct climate we live in now. In the clip we see Kim start in on Kenya, all the while the latter does her best to ignore…first. But Kim being Kim, won’t let up. Fine. Finally, Kenya has had enough of Kim’s darts and starts dissing her back. Mind you, Kim STARTED this fight and at first, Kenya tried to take the high road and ignore her. But ignoring someone ‘poking the bear’ can only go on for so long when someoen is repeatedly, without any provocation, taking personal shots at your marriage AND sitting like 3 feet away from you.

So Kenya wonders out loud ‘Why you got such a hard on for me?’ Get it? As in, why are you so obsessed with what’s going on my life. Then she hurls the crude, but effective “Why do you have such a hard-on for me? Didn’t they cut it off during your reassignment surgery,” See? It’s a dick joke, not a trans slur. Thus, it’s all about context…unless, of course, you’re a liberal/PC-nut/group offended and hurt by every single thing under the sun. And the irony here is that Kim didn’t even want to get up and throw hands until Kenya hurled the lovely “Stop pimpimg out your daughter to John Legend” line. In other words, if Kin wasn’t ‘offended’ by the ‘hard on’ line, then why would anyone else be? Because SOME people just don’t have anything else better to do.

Either way, this event will almost certainly be brought up at the next reunion and all things considering, Kenya will be ‘forced’ to apologize or risk losing her peach…smh.

Lisa Rinna Shares Exciting News On Daughters

27 Nov

BravoTV.com:

It’s been a big week in the Rinna-Hamlin household. Hot off of celebrating husband Harry Hamlin’s 66th birthday, Lisa Rinna is getting ready to mark a couple of major milestones with daughters Delilah Belle Hamlin and Amelia Gray Hamlin.

Lisa shared some exciting news on Twitter Friday. “One child moving to NYC today and one taking her driving permit test,” she said.

Though Lisa didn’t specify which of her daughters is doing what, we would guess that Delilah, 19, is moving to New York City, while Amelia, 16, is getting ready to get her driver’s permit.

Lisa also included a sad emoji face in that tweet, which we can only interpret to mean that she’s not quite ready for her little girls to be all grown up. 

The Hamlin sisters certainly have bright futures ahead of them. Both Delilah and Amelia have taken the fashion world by storm as two of the hottest models in the industry right now, working with the likes of Dolce & Gabbana, Stuart Weitzman, and Tommy Hilfiger.

Bethenny Frankel Went on Shark Tank and Invested in Fledgling Beverage Company

27 Nov

BravoTV.com:

Skinnygirl mogul Bethenny Frankel has fallen in love with a fledgling beverage company she discovered while serving as a guest investor on Shark Tank.

The Real Housewives of New York City businesswoman took a moment during her birthday on South Beach in Miami to tell fans how excited she is about partnering with Shark Kevin O’Leary to invest $150,000 for 25 percent equity in Snarky Tea, a beverage company selling healthy teas with Bethenny-esque witticisms such as “Namaste Motherf**ker” and “Fierce B*tch.”

The company was launched by new mom Jenni-Lyn Williams, who scored the deal when she was seven months pregnant.

Jenni-Lyn told ABC 7 in Sarasota, Florida that her odyssey into tea began when a doctor advised her to cut down an excessive coffee habit. “I thought tea is not for me, I’m just going to have to switch to decaf or something like that,” she said. “So the next day, I went to work and I started looking at the options of tea in the kitchen. And the woman that worked at the coffee bar there, I just sort of turned to her and said, ‘You know, I don’t know what I’m looking at. If they had a tea called ‘Wake the F Up,’ I would know exactly which one to order right now because I’m tired and I need something that’s going to give me a jolt.’ So that inspired it and I just went to my desk and started drawing up ideas.”

Bethenny fell in love with the product and the woman behind it.

Sheree Whitfield and Kenya Moore Bury the Hatchet

26 Nov

BuddyTV.com:

It looks like the infamous house war on The Real Housewives of Atlanta has come to an end. 

Sheree Whitfield and Kenya Moore have been long rivals when it comes to their respective houses, Chateau Sheree and Moore Manor, for years though their strife hit an all-time high last season as both stars invited guests (and viewers) into their homes for a housewarming party. 

This season, however, the beef between Sheree and Kenya has seemingly settled. Besides the most recent episode of RHOA in which the girls got along at Sheree’s ’70s-themed party, Kenya posted a photo of her and Sheree on Instagram– offering a bit of an update of the status of their relationship. 

“From house wars with @shereewhitfield to hugs to house parties!” she wrote on the caption. 

Earlier this month, Sheree also talked about her newly wed co-star, whom she has grown to like.  

“I’m enjoying her as a newlywed,” Sheree told People. “You remember how evil that bitch used to be. She’s actually a nicer person now. She’s more humble. She needed that … whatever it is, I love it.”

Phaedra Parks Announces Her Contract With Wilhelmina Models

24 Nov

USmagazine.com:

There’s a new model in town: Phaedra Parks. Though she may no longer be on the cast of The Real Housewives of Atlanta, the 5-foot-1 entrepreneur has added a new job to her resume. That’s right — she’s not just a lawyer and a mortician, she’s now signed on with Wilhelmina Models, too.

Stylish caught up with the accomplished reality TV star to get the exclusive scoop on her newest role, her revenge body and how she feels about stripping down, who her modeling inspirations are and more.
Stylish: Tell us, what are your goals for modeling?

Parks: I think I’m the face of “yes you can.” I’m a small town girl who has followed her dreams. Yes you can be a mom, yes you can be a lawyer and yes you can be a model. When the opportunity presented itself some people asked me “Why?’ and I said “Why not?” A supermodel started this company and she wanted to give power back to the women and I think I stand for the same things. I have the opportunity to show people that beauty can come in every size, shade, color and age. It’s exciting and an adventure!

Stylish: Tell us about how you feel about representing an under-served market.

Parks: I feel great about being different, in light of what’s going on now, politically … I think women need to be empowered to stand in their truth, to be different, dare to be diverse and stand up in times of controversy. I’m excited for that part.

Stylish: What would be your dream campaign?

Parks: Well I would love be the face of skin care brand. I have great skin, I love makeup, but I love to be able to take off the makeup and have beautiful skin. I also think a lot of girls are looking on Instagram for an idealized standard of beauty that requires a lot of makeup. Those are not the faces of what real women look like.
