Peter Thomas Opens New Lounge In ATL AND RHOA Update!
The cast of The Real Housewives of Atlanta, Kandi Burrus, NeNe Leakes, Phaedra Parks and Sheree Whitfeild showed their love for Cynthia Bailey as they attended the grand opening of a new lounge in Atlanta, owned and operated by Peter Thomas, Cynthia’s husband.
As you may recall, on the season finale last season, Cynthia & Peter opened up about their financial issues and decided to close a previous restaurant that they both were financially involved in.
To catch fans up, alot has happened since the finale. Kandi’s first solo-album in years, Kandi Koated, was released. Kim Zolciak gave birth to her first son with her boyfriend Kroy Biermann and NeNe Leakes and Kim are allegedly not friends! (surprise, surprise!)
Walk Through Walls - Johnny Marnell, Scotty Granger & Jes Hudak
This week’s winning song on Platinum Hit was “Walk Through Walls”! It is pretty darn good! I think Sonyae, Nick & Melissa’s song, “Miss Make The Boys Cry” was equally fab! Click here to listen to that.
Camille Grammer's Kids Won't Be Filmed-- No Confirmation of New RH Castemate
As Camille and Kelsey Grammer continue their never-ending divorce and custody battle, Camille has stated that her kids will not be part of the show, The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.
"My ex wouldn’t sign the release, so you are not going to see my children," Camille told E! News. "Mason really wanted to be a part of the show."
When E! brought up the reported new caste-mate, Brandi Glanville and the new season, Camille’s lips were shut! She did say however, ”She’s (Brandi) fun, she’s a hoot. She kind of tells it like it is.” (Eh, still not to sure if I will like her, how about you?)
Camille also said she can connect with Brandi because they are both going through a horrific and public divorce. (Ehem, LeAnn Rimes, whom I dislike very much!)
Thoughts on what you think the new season of RHOBH will be like?
As if we needed more evidence, the reported newest Real Housewife of Atlanta, Marlo Hampton has been seen shooting extensively around Atlanta with current cast members Sheree Whitfield, Phaedra Parks, and Cyntha Banks. Marlo is engaged to NFL football player Charles Grant, who last played for the Chicago Bears, but was a Georgia Bulldog during his collegiate career.
A few days ago, Marlo was spotted with Cynthia & Sheree at the UPTOWN Magazine Social in Atlanta, and were supposedly having a great time with one another. NeNe was also there and apparently she was keeping all to herself! (surprising!)
Who misses the Atlanta ladies? Do you think Bravo should have played with the cast or left it alone?
Alex McCord of The Real Housewives of New York City told The Village Voice Blog about the crazy taping of the reunion. At Gawker’s “Summer of Love” rooftop party last night to benefit the Empire State Pride Agenda Foundation, there was some sense of un-easiness between Sonja and Alex. "The whole thing was like a cage match," she said. "If I’m provoked, watch out," said Alex. "I had a lot to say and to get off my chest!"
At that point, along came Sonja Morgan, who was apparently was not so “uplifting”, when asked how taping went, she responded, “Horrible!”. “I had to defend everyone and people were attacking me. Kelly said my house is dirty and disorganized! You don’t say that to someone when they’re going through a divorce and a lawsuit and…” she paused, "I’m going to get a beer."
Oh boy! Who is excited for the RHONY reunion? That was a fast season, eh!
According to a study that took place in Austria, watching The Real Housewives may make you act in unintelligent ways, perhaps flipping a table? "If you’ve been experiencing the urge to assault a close friend or wax your sisters’ nether regions, we may have found the culprit," says Margaret Hartmann at Jezebel.

Teresa Spoke to Reality Tea about her fears and her life without Joe:
“I would be very nervous about the kids if Joe were to go to prison. Daddy is their hero and their king. They go crazy for him.” Giudice went on to say that when the news was broken in the media, she did hear from her brother’s wife. She explained: “When the whole thing happened, his wife [Melissa] texted me. I was nice to her, saying, ‘Thanks for text. We’re doing fine.’ But it would have been nice if my brother called. He is my brother — it would have been good of him to reach out to me.”
Teresa and Joe seem to have a great relationship on the show and their four children, Gia, Milania, Gabriela and Adriana seem to love their father and mother very much.
If you can’t pay the time, don’t do the crime, Joe!
Such a sad story! My thoughts and prayers are with you Tree!
Our beloved Bethenny Frankel is taking over the world! Bethenny Frankel has numerous New York Times Bestsellers. As well as hit reality television shows, including her spin-offs Bethenny Getting Married and Bethenny Ever After, and a million-dollar brand, SkinnyGirl.
In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Bethenny said, “I want to be on TV in a format where I can have a longer conversation with my fans rather than 140 characters on Twitter. It probably will be a talk show.”
TelePictures studios is reported to have produced a pilot for Ms. Bethenny and it will be an “advice-based” talk show.
Rumors are also spreading saying the Ellen Degeneres, a big fan of Bethenny, is going to be part of the show as a possible producer.
PopEater has stated that the show will most likely be filmed in New York and will feature many segments including cooking.
Bethenny Frankel also told PopEater earlier this year, “I would like a daytime talk show because my conversation with my fans right now is through social networking, and my TV show communicates what I’m doing, but it isn’t really a dialogue or a conversation. Most of my business wishes come true.”
This past weekend Mario Singer, husband of Ramona, and Bobby Zarin, husband of Jill got into a small altercation at a party in the Hamptons!
An eyewitness at the party told E! News what went down, ”Once Mario found Jill, he began screaming at her and was blaming her for the fact that Ramona looks like a drunk this season on the show,” one party-goer said. “It was really sad and pathetic that Mario was screaming at Jill like this. It was abusive and everyone at the party was extremely offended.”
The source continued, “She [Jill] was just standing there speechless and looked scared and finally a guest had to get in between Jill and Mario and push him away from her. Bobby [Jill’s husband] had some words with Mario and told him to back off of his wife.”
After the blowout happened, the source says that Mario and Ramona continued to bad mouth Jill and her husband. Jill’s rep told E! that the story was sadly accurate.
It has been reported that quiet, sometimes outspoken, Taylor Armstrong has been causing some drama!
Radar Online is reporting that, “Taylor is telling the other women exactly what she is thinking, and she isn’t holding anything back. Taylor has had some tense moments with Adrienne Maloof especially. Adrienne was completely taken aback by Taylor because she usually tried to avoid conflict. There has also been some drama between new housewife, Brandi Glanville and Taylor.”
All of this drama will pan out during the second season of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills
Sidenote: Does this situation sound familiar? Perhaps with one of the other real housewives, specifically in New York? [Alex McCord??]
Who is excited for season two? Do you think Faye Resnick should have been cast?
Drama at The Brownstone, No Hair Extensions Involved
Last Tuesday, a fire erupted in the kitchen of The Brownstone in New Jersey. The name may sound familiar because it is owned by Caroline Manzo and her family.
A source tells Radar Online that it took fire officials approximately 2 hours to extinguish the flames, and according to Caroline, there were no injuries.
“Thanks for your concern everyone @the brownstonenj fire is contained no injuries back to business!” Caroline tweeted.
Chris Manzo, Caroline’s son, also tweeted about the fire, letting fans know that all was well — in his own way. “The Brownstone is fine thank u for asking, can’t leave that place for a second,” wrote Chris.
The newest addition to The Real Housewives of New York City,Cindy Barshop has been accused of discrimination in her chain of spas, Completely Bare. Ex-employee, Altovise Collier, says she was fired because she is black.
According to Collier, Barshop and 50 other employees insulted her when she started working there. She interviewed by phone and her skin color wasn’t known until she started work.
Collier said: “They were very impressed with me — until they saw me. I was treated like trash and thrown in the gutter, damn near sleeping in the streets.”
Collier also claims that she was not given the proper $700 dollar weekly salary she was promised.
She adds: “Everyone treated me badly, like I was in some sort of sorority hazing." When she complained to Barshop, she was fired a week later.
Her lawyer, Lenard Leeds said: “From Day One, she wasn’t given the same training, she wasn’t given the same money either.”
Andy Cohen does not seem to like Kim G., which is probably why she’s not an official cast member. Word got back to Kim G. that Cohen asked if there was really a market for her, so she lashed out (several times) at the dear boy for his remark via Twitter:
“U meant what u said Andy! I am not “dumb” Theresa here. Hard to get things past me. Way way too smart!”
“Hey Tom, get burnt on any flames tonight? Flying home with my jewels, having sweet dreams” and not about u know who.”
“if the “flaming” guilty shoe fits, then WEAR it!!!”

The Real Housewives of Orange County Season Finale: TONIGHT!
Well that was fast, eh? The sixth season of the Real Housewives of Orange County comes to an end tonight with what the Bravo network is promising will be a very dramatic finale.
On the finale tonight titled “Girl Fight,” the season concludes with a bang as we finally get to see the altercation between Jeana and Tamra that Bravo has been teasing us with for months! (YES! I dislike Jeana, do you?)
Ramona Singer: "I DO NOT have a drinking problem!"
Everyone knows Ramona Singer goes hand-in-hand (literally) with Ramona Singer. This season on The Real Housewives of New York City one of the story lines has entailed Ramona Singer and her “drinking problem”.
Ramona spoke to In The Mixx at a recent event for Hamptons Magazine, “Do I overdrink? No. I drink with responsibility,” she continued, ”I drink with a beautiful dinner. I would rather have my one or two glasses of Pinot Grigio than dessert which is 700 calories.”
She does however admit that her name has become synonymous to the white wine.
"All I can say is, we’re filmed in social events. If you look at anytime I have a drink in my hand, look what LuAnn [de Lesseps] is drinking. The other people are drinking," Ramona said. "The only person who doesn’t drink is Jill [Zarin]. She only drinks Diet Coke – and you wonder why? But anyway, all the otherHousewives shows – they’re all drinking.”
What do you think? Is Ramona in need of an AA meeting?
The ONLY remaining original Real Housewife sat down with PEOPLE Magazine to talk about her experience on the show, the season 6 finale, her divorce, her life, her kids and her future. Click here to see the video.
