Bravo Reportedly Confirms Kenya Moore Has Been Fired From RHOA

30 Jun

Bye, Kenya.

The Real Housewives of Atlanta will not film a single episode of the hit show with Kenya Moore exclusively learned.

Moore was not filming with her co-stars in Miami and Radar has confirmed that her peach was taken away.

“We look forward to welcoming new housewives and telling new authentic stories for season 11,” a production source told Radar exclusively.

Moore’s contract will not be renewed.

NeNe Leakes, Porsha Williams, Marlo Hampton, Cynthia Bailey and new mom and new full-time Housewife Eva Marcille all filmed together in Miami amid Moore’s ousting from the show.

If it’s true, I’m not feeling this decision. Kenya, like her or not, was always entertaining. Marlo, not so much.

Alexis and Jim Bellino Comment on Their Divorce and Why They Decided to Split

29 Jun

Real Housewives of Orange County alum Alexis Bellino and her husband, Jim Bellino, have broken their silence regarding their split one week after Jim filed for divorce.

“It is with heavy hearts that we inform the public of our mutual decision to end our marriage — but it’s important to us that you know we made this choice together, with love, and as the best decision for our children’s future,” the two said in a joint statement to Us Weekly on Thursday, June 28. “We hold one another in the highest regards as spouses, and especially as parents. We have agreed on 50/50 custody of the children, and we ask that you respect our privacy by not theorizing about the reasons for our divorce.”

“In recent days and weeks, there has been a lot of negative discussion about our marriage and why it is ending,” their statement continued. “Outside of the news of our decision to part ways, there is nothing provocative, alluring, or sordid about the dissolution of our marriage. Quite to the contrary, we strongly support each other just as we have since the beginning of our relationship.”

Us Weekly confirmed on June 21 that Jim had filed for divorce from his wife of 13 years. He cited irreconcilable differences as the reason for the split and is asking for spousal support from Alexis, who starred on RHOC for three season from 2009 to 2013. They share three children: 12-year-old old son James and 10-year-old twin daughters Melania and Mackenna.

Kandi Burruss & Porsha Williams Are Friends Again

27 Jun

After one long year following their massive blowout, former BFFs Kandi Burruss and her Real Housewives of Atlanta co-star Porsha Williams have appeared to have buried the hatchet and reconciled. As it was reported by Celebrity Insider, the duo was said to have been spotted together in Miami filming scenes for their upcoming season of RHOA. Burruss along with Williams were joined by fellow co-stars Marlo Hampton, Cynthia Bailey, and the newest RHOA cast member to get her very own peach, model Eva Marcille. Noticeably absent from the group was Kenya Moore who was rumored to have been fired from the show and replaced with Marcille.

Fans and photogs were able to snap a few photos of the ladies who were reportedly in South Beach for the grand opening of RHOA alum Nene Leakes’ store. On Monday evening word quickly got around that Burruss had finally reconciled with the Dish Nation co-host after deciding to start following Williams on social media once again.

Last year Burruss and Williams had a huge falling out after their former co-star, and Atlanta attorney Phaedra Parks alleged that the Xscape singer and her husband Todd Tucker had plans to drug and rape Williams and have a threesome with the 37-year-old beauty.

The terrible lie not only destroyed Burruss’ friendships with the ladies but cost Parks her job. Since the huge fight, Burruss has said that she would never forgive Parks nor Williams for destroying her reputation over the false allegations.

After being spotted together in Miami and Burruss taking the initiative to follow Williams on social media, many fans said they hoped that this was the beginning of a possible reconciliation between the duo and Parks.

26 Jun

Meghan King Edmonds is in mommy bliss following the June 6 birth of her twin boys, Hayes and Hart. But along with the cuddles and coos, Meghan is facing challenges like any newborn parent does. And she recently opened up to fans about a health scare her family had.

On June 23, The Real Housewives of Orange County alum posted a photo of her gleeful daughter Aspen, who was feeding her new baby brother with a bottle. “I’m as happy as a toddler feeding a real baby while stealing his paci!” Meghan wrote.

In a heartfelt message, the mom of three went on to explain that she and husband Jim Edmonds had just gotten good news regarding the health of their son Hart. “Even babies born at 37 weeks aren’t truly considered ‘full term’ and we had a scare with Hart’s test results but he got retested and is fine,” she said. Whew! 

Meghan went on to send out good wishes to any parents dealing with a similar situation. “My heart and prayers go out to all the families whose babies are experiencing any health hardships, waiting on results, or dealing with watching your baby in the hospital. You all are stronger than you know,” she wrote.

Monique Samuels Opens Up About 3rd Pregnancy After Suffering a Miscarriage

26 Jun

Monique Samuels is mother to two absolutely adorable children: son Christopher and daughter Milani. Now as The Real Housewives of Potomac entrepreneur gets ready to welcome baby No. 3, she says this pregnancy has a particularly special meaning. 

Monique experienced a miscarriage after she got pregnant for the third time last year, which RHOP fans saw her open up about earlier this season (clip above). She recently opened up about that challenging time in a post on her blog  Not for Lazy Moms, explaining that after the miscarriage occurred around 7.5 weeks into her third pregnancy, she “was a complete mess on the inside.” 

But Monique shared the happy news earlier this month that she and husband Chris Samuels are expecting their third child. “I’m more careful than I’ve ever been this time around,” Monique wrote in the blog post.

Unfortunately, there have already been complications in her pregnancy. An ultrasound eight weeks into her pregnancy revealed that Monique had a subchorionic hemorrhage in two areas of her placenta that should have been fully attached to the wall of her uterus, she explained in her blog post.

“My doctor told me that if the placenta fully separates, I would lose the pregnancy, regardless of the excellent health and size of the fetus,” Monique shared. “Talk about devastated and afraid!!!” Instead of giving in to the fear that she’ll lose her baby again, Monique said that she is committed to staying positive and following her doctor’s orders to take it easy.

Teresa Giudice’s Husband Joe Denies Reports He’s Being Deported To Italy

24 Jun

Joe Giudice is denying reports that he will be deported before his prison sentence is complete in 2019. 

The Giudice family attorney, James J. Leonard Jr., confirmed that no actions have been taken to deport Joe in a statement to PEOPLE. “I can state with absolute certainty that no decision has been made regarding the immigration status of Joe Giudice. The same immigration detainer that was lodged against him in March of 2016 remains in place today, but I want to be absolutely clear about this, no judicial authority has made any decision regarding what will happen with that detainer,” he said. “Mr. Giudice has immigration counsel who are and have been working aggressively on his behalf so that he can return home to his wife and four young daughters and we remain optimistic that that is how this will end.” 

The Real Housewives of New Jersey husband always faced the possibility of being deported back to Italy, where he was born, after he finished his 41-month sentence for mail, wire, and bankruptcy fraud, which he began in March 2016. Joe began his prison at the Federal Correctional Institution in Fort Dix, New Jersey. He was later transferred to FCI Allenwood in Pennsylvania at the end of 2017.

Joe’s wife, Teresa Giudice, has continued to keep RHONJ fans updated on how her husband is doing during his time away, sharing that he has been focusing on his health and fitness, as well as his education

Teresa also recently shared Joe’s reaction to her latest endeavor: bodybuilding. “I don’t think he wanted to get me on stage in a bathing suit,” Teresa told Us Weekly. “Then he recently said to me, ‘You know what, you should do it.’ He’s been so supportive, he’s so happy for me.”
