Apollo Nida Files to Divorce Phaedra Parks


TMZ.com:
Phaedra Parks and Apollo Nida are getting divorced -- for REAL this time, according to Apollo, who filed docs from prison.

Apollo filed his divorce petition in Georgia on Thursday ... requesting joint legal custody of their 2 children and an equitable split of their assets. He says they separated in June 2014 after nearly 5 years of marriage.

In the docs, he says they can no longer live together as husband and wife and the union is "irretrievably broken." He doesn't mention the fact he's doing 8 years in a federal pen for financial fraud. 

It's interesting ... Phaedra proudly told us last month her divorce was finalized, but we've never seen any docs to back that up, and Apollo told us that was news to him.

Looks like he wanted it to be over just as badly. As we told you, he's got a new fiancée.

We've reached out to Phaedra. No word back yet.

Danielle Staub Speaks on Rumored 'Real Housewives of New Jersey' Return and New Boyfriend


BuddyTV.com:
Ever since former Real Housewives of New Jersey enemies Teresa Giudice and Danielle Staub shockingly reunited for a yoga class, fans have been buzzing about what this could mean for the show's future.

It was recently reported that Danielle was in fact returning for season 8 as a possible friend of the Housewives, but what does Danielle have to say about these rumors? Plus, what should fans expect to see from her, if she does return?


During a recent interview with Radar Online, Danielle was asked about her rumored return to the show. While she didn't provide a direct response, her answers seemed to hint towards her coming back.

"I obviously can't make a comment on that," Danielle said about her possible comeback.

"I would not be able to say either way whether I'm a friend or full time or whatever," she continued. "I think those are Andy Cohen questions. I'm deferring them to Andy!"

If she does end up appearing on season 8, which would be her first time back on the show since season 2, Danielle may already have a storyline to share with the viewers -- her new boyfriend, Marty Caffrey.

"My new relationship is public so whatever I do whether it's this show or another show or anything I do with my life, yes, it's here to been seen," she explained.

Testimony Begins In Son of Lauri Waring's Attempted Murder Trial


OCRegister.com:
Two people who said they were shot at by the son of a former “Real Housewives of Orange County” star testified Wednesday in a preliminary hearing about the “chaos” at the shooting scene in Costa Mesa.

When gunfire erupted outside of a home at 2959 Babb St., one of the victims, who lived in a garage there, said, “I turned and ran in the other direction toward the main house … That walkway was like a shooting gallery. It was horrible.”

One of the victims, Danny Lopez, “was shot, but he wasn't sure he was shot or not. It was chaos,” testified Jennifer M, whose last name was withheld in court.

When asked how many times the defendant, Joshua Michael Waring, 27, opened fire from a white 2011 BMW X3, Jennifer said, “I just knew it was a lot. At least eight. I saw every one of them -- the flashing.”

The BMW slowly rolled by the house as the gunfire rang out in rapid succession, Jennifer testified. Then the car “sped off,” she said.

“I called the police to let them know someone had been shot,” she testified.

When police arrived, they ordered everyone out of the house, but Jennifer testified she was reluctant to leave her bleeding friend as she tended to him. Another friend told police that Jennifer “was pregnant at the time.”

Jennifer added that about a week after the shooting, “I had a miscarriage. I don't know if it was because of this.”

Waring, who is acting as his own attorney, attempted to undermine Jennifer's testimony as he cross-examined her.

Waring asked her, “Is this the first time we've met?”

“No, we've met before,” she replied.

When Waring pressed further, Jennifer said that the defendant was at the Babb Street house once before when they were both there, but she wasn't “100 percent” sure they were introduced.

Larsa Pippen Spotted with Rapper Future After Breakup from Scottie Pippen


IBTimes.com:
Larsa Pippen is reportedly spending time with Future after she and estranged husband Scottie Pippen announced that they are ending their 19-year marriage.

The two were reportedly spotted together in L.A., according to Page Six. A source said the two went to a venue called Catch and entered through its back entrance. Larsa was in Future’s circle while they were inside the establishment, but the two stayed away from each other, the source added.

Prior to the event, there were already rumors claiming that Larsa’s closeness to Future was one of the reasons her marriage with Scottie did not last. A source reportedly told Us Weekly that Larsa has been spending a lot of time with Future since they met at a party in Miami. He has been “flying her everywhere on his private jet,” the source added.

Future fueled the fire when he posted a message on Snapchat shortly after the Pippens’ announcement was made. “She mines now [sic],” the rapper said.

Meanwhile, aside from Larsa’s closeness to Future, her friendship with Kim Kardashian also reportedly served as a catalyst for her breakup with Scottie. A source told Page Six that Scottie “hates the whole Kardashian Instagram lifestyle.” The source also said that since being friends with the Kardashians, Larsa has been going to clubs a lot, which he does not like. “He’s afraid of all the gossip that comes with that Kardashian world she’s in,” the source added.

The Pippens announced their divorce on Oct. 21. The two did not state the reason for their breakup, but they did say that they will continue to co-parent their children.

Porsha Williams Dishes on Laser Tag and the Argument Between Kenya Moore and Sheree Whitfield


Bravo.com:
Bravotv.com: Did you enjoy playing laser tag with the ladies?
Porsha Williams: OMG, I had so much fun! Some of the best moments on the show are when we stop talking about our personal lives and just start acting a fool and having a good time. It was a great distraction from the pettiness.


Bravotv.com: What was going through your mind during Kenya and Sheree's argument?
PW: I was sitting there bored... I feel like I have heard all those tired reads before. It just gets old, so I decided to dig into the food. I honestly don't get this ongoing rivalry between them. Why can't they just be glad and congratulate each other for achieving their dreams and owning a home? I was hoping they would get tired and let it go, but that didn't happen.


Bravotv.com: What did you think when Kenya called you guys out for eating during the confrontation with Sheree?
PW: Girl hush! If we have to sit here and listen to children bickering back and forth, we should at least get to enjoy the tasty treats! LOL!

Kelly Dodd's Husband Michael Disses Andy Cohen's 'Watch What Happens Live' Show


DailyMail.com:
He's one of Bravo's head honchos and known as the Real Housewives whisperer.

So Andy Cohen was understandably ruffled after discovering that the husband of a star in one of his shows had slammed him on Twitter.

The 48-year-old responded to being 'trashed' by Kelly Dodd's other half Michael when a caller asked him about it during his Radio Andy SiriusXM show on Monday.

'Oh my God,' Andy said as he read the tweets around. 'It's that moment where I find out I'm being trashed on Twitter by a Real Housewife's husband.

'Oh my God, thanks for telling me about this. I mean, Michael Dodd? Your wife is on my crappy show.'

Andy then learned that Michael had been referring to his late night talk show Watch What Happens Live.
'I am very proud of my little talk show, Michael Dodd,' he said scathingly. 

While Andy was clearly annoyed by the remarks, he also managed to laugh at Michael's unkind words.

Michael, whose wife Kelly is on The Real Housewives Of Orange County, had slammed Andy and his latest memoir Superficial: More Adventures from the Andy Cohen Diaries.
'AC needs to stop writing crappy books & fix his crap show,' he wrote on Twitter earlier this month, adding that the talk show host 'can't recognize talent'.

Michael then clarified that he wasn't referring to his wife's show, writing: 'I was talking of WWHL. amateur hour!'

At the beginning of the month, he tweeted after Kelly appeared on the show: 'Kelly doesn't care whether AC likes her or not. She kisses nobody's a**.'

Lisa Vanderpump Talks Almost Not Returning to 'Real Housewives of Beverly Hills'


BlastingNews.com:
Lisa Vanderpump almost quit her full-time role on "The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" ahead of the series' 7th season. Although the restauranteur has been featured on the Bravo TV reality series since its start in 2010, she recently admitted to feeling beat up after the show's 6th season.

In an interview for the December issue of Foxtel magazine, Vanderpump said she almost didn't sign on for season 7 due to the mean-spirited behavior of a couple of her co-stars, who she failed to name. In a statement to the magazine, Vanderpump said she wasn't sure if she wanted to come back to the show for its 7th season and had several discussions with production before she returned.
"A couple of the other women just didn't stop," Vanderpump told the magazine, adding that her co-stars were "relentless." Continuing on, Lisa Vanderpump said season six simply wasn't a good season and she didn't want to return to the place where she was with the other ladies.

Following her "Real Housewives" success, Vanderpump went on to appear in her own spinoff series, "Vanderpump Rules," which was based out of her West Hollywood, California restaurant, SUR Restaurant. She also appeared during the 2013 season of "Dancing With The Stars."

In addition to the returning housewives, including Kyle Richards, Erika Girardi, Lisa Rinna and Eileen Davidson, Vanderpump will be seen alongside new housewife Dorit Kemsley and friend Eden Sassoon in "The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" season 7. While it is not yet known which housewives will be seen on the side of Vanderpump, she is said to have a relationship with Kemsley, which is likely a good sign. After all, she surely wouldn't want to be beaten down for the second season in a row.

Shereé Whitfield and Kandi Burruss Stand Up to the Men in Their Lives


People.com:
Kandi Burruss and Shereé Whitfield suffer no fools on The Real Housewives of Atlanta. So when their respective baby daddies tried to step to them on Sunday’s all new episode, the Atlanta Housewives wasted no time putting them in their place.

For Burruss, 40, that meant reminding ex Russell “Block” Spencer that his own actions had caused their daughter, Riley Burruss, to push away from him.

The two had a tense phone conversation — which began when Spencer called Kandi after years of not speaking, telling her he was trying to mend fences.

“I’m tryin’ make up with you, see what I’m saying, so I can see Riley,” he said. “I just need to sit down with you too. Like, I just don’t want no bad blood going on so we can co-parent the right way. How can we start over?”

Kandi wasn’t incredibly open to Spencer’s sudden suggestion of wanting to be involved in Riley’s life — especially after his history of not showing up for Riley when he said he would. “How do you co-parent a kid that’s almost 14 years old? That you’ve never co-parented? No. It doesn’t work like that,” she told viewers in a confessional.

She told Spencer to direct his desire for a relationship with Riley to Riley herself. “At this point, Riley is old enough to say whether or not she really wants to have a relationship with her dad,” she explained earlier in the episode. “Right now, she ain’t feeling it. So I ain’t going to push and I’m not going to diss the relationship.”

But Spencer told Burruss his attempts to contact Riley had gone unanswered. “I’ve been calling y’all — y’all ain’t been calling me back,” he said. “I’m not about to chase y’all to communicate with me. I’m not chasing nobody, you understand what I’m saying?”

------------------------------------

Whitfield had similar financial struggles with her ex, Bob Whitfield. The two officially divorced in 2007 after 7 years of marriage and 14 years together. But despite being court-ordered to maintain Shereé’s mortgage, household expenses and child support — Bob did not.

They’re in a good place now, co-parenting after 9 years of battling and legal squabbles. But Shereé said Bob has never said he’s sorry for the “bad place” he took her to during their split.

Brandi Glanville Posts Insensitive Nativity Scene Photo To Social Media


NYDailyNews.com:
"Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" star Brandi Glanville is under fire for her scandalous take on the holiday season.

The 44-year-old reality TV star thought it would be funny to pose above Jesus in a San Diego nativity scene, where she posed as if she was giving birth to the son of God.

"Never forget the reason for the season," she wrote beneath the Facebook photo posted on Friday.

Glanville instantly offended hundreds of commenters — both religious and not — for her post.

"You managed to offend practically everyone with this post. Are you stupid or something?" one user wrote.

Another Facebook commenter added, "You look like a nice person, and that's why I like your page.

But this is so offensive and out of control, really make me rethink if you are crazy, or only looking for attention. Grow up!!!!!!"

After the "Drinking and Dating" author started to come under fire, she took to Twitter to respond to the backlash.

People need to chill the f--k out and take a joke," she wrote.
