Teresa Giudice Says Husband Joe Feels ‘Tremendous Guilt’ as He Faces Deportation

27 Feb

People.com:

Teresa Giudice is getting candid about her husband Joe Giudice‘s upcoming deportation on Wednesday’s Real Housewives of New Jersey reunion part 2.

In a preview from the episode shared by Bravo, the reality star and mother of four opens up to Andy Cohen about Joe’s future, revealing to the host that her husband feels guilt over the possibly of leaving his family behind.

“He has tremendous guilt, but he’s very positive, very strong,” Teresa says, adding that Joe’s lawyers — who appealed his deportation ruling in November and are still awaiting a decision — are “trying their best” to prevent Joe from having to return to his native Italy after his 41-month prison sentence for mail, wire and bankruptcy fraud ends next month.

Asked if Joe will have to go directly from the facility he’s in right now to an airplane, Teresa admits she “[didn’t] know exactly the technicalities of it.”

“I hope I don’t have to cross that bridge,” she says.

Lisa Rinna, Harry Hamlin and Nicollette Sheridan in Heated Twitter Feud

26 Feb

People.com:

Harry Hamlin and Lisa Rinna are standing by their claim that Nicollette Sheridan cheated on Hamlin with Michael Bolton.

The allegations against Sheridan were first made on Tuesday’s episode of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, when Rinna, who has been married to Hamlin for over two decades, told her fellow housewives that Sheridan, 55, allegedly ended her marriage to Hamlin, 67, after meeting Bolton, 65, at a concert.

Days later, Sheridan fired back at Rinna, 55, on Twitter, slamming the alleged affair as “FAKE NEWS!”

“Harry and I ended our marriage nose to nose in Canada… Michael was a long time friend that was invited to our wedding… Happy Harry found happiness with housewife @lisarinna,” the star wrote on Friday.

Sheridan, of course, famously starred on ABC’s scripted series Desperate Housewives, which inspired Bravo’s Real Housewives reality franchise.

Turning up the heat, Hamlin responded on Saturday, criticizing his ex-wife’s denial and going on to claim that she allegedly stepped out on him two weeks after his mother’s death.

“Re Fake News! What’s it called when your wife of one year suddenly goes to bed with a pop singer? …two weeks after your mother dies?? I did a lotta stuff with my wife ‘nose to nose’ but ending our marriage was not one of them!” he wrote.

Lisa Rinna’s Secret Real Housewives Origins Revealed

21 Feb

EOnline.com:

Believe it or not, there was a time when Lisa Rinna was not involved with The Real Housewives franchise. The soap star was on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen alongside Carson Kressley and discussed her secret Housewives origins.

While discussing Kressley’s accidental Real Housewives of New York City appearances, Rinna brought up her first-ever Housewives appearance—it was on RHONY.

“Sweetie, you were on season two episode seven,” Andy Cohen said. “It was the episode where [Bethenny Frankel] called [Luann de Lesseps] a snake at the fashion show…You were sitting between Kelly Bensimon and Bethenny and it was super uncomfortable, I loved it.”

“Yes! And I had no idea what I was in the middle of. None!” Rinna said.“It was an iconic episode for me,” Cohen said.

A caller asked Rinna if she was ever approached for the show before she joined in season five and Rinna let Cohen take it away.

“We did talk to Lisa at the beginning…season one and put her on tape. I felt very strongly, for better or worse, that…I didn’t get it. I felt like it should be all unknown people. Even though Kim and Kyle [Richards] had acted years before, whatever, I felt like Lisa Rinna was too much of a personality and name. And then, by the way, when you did join, I was like, ‘It’s time for Lisa Rinna to join.’ You had been on this show, I knew that you knew the women, you had a long history. I just felt that the show needed to establish itself on its own, before in my mind I could ever picture it,” Cohen said.

“And I totally agree,” Rinna said.
