Bravo Edits Footage Of Amber Marchese's Husband Threatening Teresa Giudice's Brother Joe
Real Housewives of New Jersey‘s Amber Marchese‘s husband, Jim, appeared to threaten Melissa Gorga‘s husband, Joe, in a preview clip of Season 6 in connection with Teresa Giudice‘s legal problems. 

However, is exclusively reporting that Bravo edited the footage to make Jim look like the villain, when he was actually trying to help the Giudices.

Amber’s hubby bragged in a preview clip about his ties to the “Attorney General that is prosecuting” to Teresa’s brother, Joe, in a heated confrontation. 

Jim made the claims in a recently released promo clip for the show, where he is shown telling Teresa’s brother in a menacing and threatening tone, “I work with the same f**king attorney general that is prosecuting your brother, you dumbf**k.”

Sources connected to the situation tell us, “Amber and Jim arrived at the party, which was to benefit first responders. Everyone was drunk and loud.

“Jim just wanted to leave, and on his way out, Joe (Gorga), told him to stay and party. Feeling uncomfortable because Jim is actually assisting the Department of Justice in a separate criminal investigation in which his company is an alleged victim. Jim tried to tell Joe that staying could place Teresa and and husband, Joe, in a precarious situation because at that time, their case was still pending.”

The source continued, “It could have been a very bad for Jim and the Giudices to put himself in that position because he didn’t want to be drawn into the ongoing legal issues facing Joe and Teresa. He tried to explain that to Joe Gorga, but he just didn’t understand it, so Jim used the term Attorney General to try and get it thru his head.

The Department of Justice “District of New Jersey” that is prosecuting a case for Jim’s company and is also working on Joe Giudice’s matter.

Discussions between Joe Gorga, Joe Giudice and Jim could have placed them all in legal jeopardy.
Joe and Teresa are scheduled to sentenced on fraud and bankruptcy charges in September. 

Counters another insider, “Any fool can understand the gravity of the situation and that Jim was trying to avoid a potential harm for all. He has the utmost respect for Teresa and Joe, and wants them to be treated fairly in court.”

Bethenny Frankel In Court For 4 Hours, Still Working On Divorce From Jason Hoppy
Bethenny Frankel worked up an appetite for lunch on Thursday while sitting on a courthouse bench for hours with her tender tootsies exposed.

The Skinnygirl Cocktails founder was in Manhattan Supreme Court for a divorce proceeding, but waited two-and-a-half hours for her case to be called. She spent much of the time with her tender feet out of the extremely high black pumps she wore to do battle with her soon to be ex-husband, Jason Hoppy.

“What time is it? I’m soooo hungry!” the former member of the “Real Housewives of New York” cast asked her lawyer, Allen Mayefsky, as they headed out of court after about four hours.

Frankel, who gained fame and fortune through products promoting a “skinny” lifestyle for women, was criticized online for being too thin after the 43-year-old posted a picture to Instagram earlier this month of her wearing her 4-year-old daughter’s pajamas.

“This is my daughter’s nightgown and PJ shorts,” her caption read. “Think we’re ready to start sharing clothes yet?”

Frankel’s legal team and Hoppy’s lawyers, led by Bernard Clair, have locked horns over a division of assets and other matters.
Frankel has dug in in those fancy heels over how much Hoppy, 42, will get of her reputed $55 million fortune, which was built, in large measure, from the 2011 sale of Skinnygirl Cocktails to Beam Global. Sales of Skinnygirl soared before the couple’s marriage hit the rocks, but dropped 26% last year. The couple was married in March 2010 and separated in December 2012.

After a brief trial earlier this year, the couple settled on a joint custody arrangement over their daughter, Bryn.

Neither Frankel nor Hoppy would talk to reporters as they waited for the case to be called. They sat in separate areas of a courthouse corridor.

Their lawyers were equally mum, both beforehand and after emerging from a closed-door conference with the judge’s law clerk.

Lisa Vanderpump Speaks On ''Opinionated'' Lisa Rinna, Her ''Awful'' Last Season and More
Lisa Vanderpump has quite the dilemma.

What is the fashionable star of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills going to wear next Wednesday, July 30 when she's honored with a star at The Palm Springs Walk of Stars?

Hotter-than-hot temperatures in the California desert resort city have been hitting about 100 degrees in recent days.

"There is the rule that you don't wear mid-colored silks because that shows the sweat," Vanderpump told me yesterday when we caught up during a break from filming RHOBH. "I'd love to say I'll be glowing but I'll probably be sweating. I have to figure this one out. And I have to wear makeup for the cameras but it will probably be in a puddle beside me."

So what the heck is Vanderpump doing filming another season of RHOBH? She's made it quite clear over the last few months she wasn't happy with how things turned out last season.

"Yes, last season was awful and I think the viewers were very uncomfortable about that and I did feel like quitting after that," she said. "But time is a great healer and after six months, I kind of reconnected with a couple of them and I thought, 'OK, I'll go back in.'"

Besides, she said, "I was under contract with Bravo…Will I regret it? I don't know."

While Vanderpump declined to confirm if Lisa Rinna is joining the cast (multiple sources have told E! News she is), she is excited by the possibility. "I've known Lisa for 25 years," she said. "I love her and I have an authentic relationship with her…I do think she's very opinionated and vocal and I think that's a good thing for reality television or you fall asleep."

As for fired Housewives Joyce Giraud and Carlton Gebbia, Vanderpump is "sad" to see them go after just one season, but she said, "I don't make the rules."

No word if a camera crew will be following her to Palm Springs next week, but it doesn't matter to Vanderpump. She likes heading to the desert for some time away from L.A. "As an English girl, going there, it's so kind of different and quaint," she said. "But also being a huge advocate of the gay community, I love the way Palm Springs embraces the LGBT community and I think LGBT youth can go down there and they can feel safe down there. That is so awesome these days with what goes on in the world."

Aviva Drescher Doesn't Regret Throwing Her Prosthetic Leg Across the Room
While she's no stranger to hurling insults, Aviva Drescher took it a step further on the Real Housewives of New York City season finale by tossing her prosthesis across the room.

"There were three shrews attacking me, and I really just wanted them to zip it," she tells PEOPLE. "Some people throw down their glasses when they get angry and I just threw down my prosthesis. And you know what? It worked. They fled."

Never far from some drama, Drescher has faced off with several of her cast mates on season 6 of the Bravo reality show, but when it came to tossing her leg, it was a first, even for her.

"I normally only take it off when I go to bed or shower," she says. But despite causing a big scene, the reality star wouldn’t think twice about doing it again.

"I don't have any regrets at all. I only have experiences that I've learned from. If I could do this all over again, I think I would, because these girls, they just don't listen. They didn't want to hear what I had to say."

One thing that concerned Drescher: Whether her prosthesis could handle being tossed through the air.

"I don't know what I was more worried about," she says. "The Jimmy Choo or my leg, but it all worked out.

"I've been going to A Step Ahead Prosthetics in New York for 12 years, and one of the reasons that I did the show is to have a platform to raise awareness for amputees. I take so much pleasure in offering guidance to the right surgeons and prosthetics, and mine didn’t break!"

The drama continues with part one of The Real Housewives of New York City Reunion on Tuesday (9 p.m. ET) on Bravo.

Eddie Cibrian and LeAnn Rimes Reveal: 'We Told the Kids About Our Affair!'

LeAnn Rimes and Eddie Cibrian may have been famously married to other people when they fell in love and started a torrid affair in 2009, but in an exclusive interview with Life & Style, the couple reveal they have told Eddie’s children all about the affair.

“We’ve had discussions with them about the whole situation,” Eddie says in the new issue of Life & Style, on stands now, of their honesty with Mason, 11, and Jake, 7, about their infidelity. “They understand more than you think they do,” LeAnn adds.

Being part of a blended family can be challenging, but LeAnn and Eddie found a way to make it work: therapy. Eddie tells the mag when he and LeAnn first got together, they went to counseling “to figure out how to put the kids first, to make sure they’re stable.” LeAnn’s sure it's helped, and she’s a doting stepmom to his kids. “We are always bettering ourselves,” she notes in the interview, “and our marriage.”

NeNe Leakes Throws Shade At Wendy Williams, Tells Her to "Be Scared" She'll Take Over Her Talk Show
Ooo girl! NeNe Leakes took to her blog on Tuesday, July 22, to call out Wendy Williams, and it apparently all started over a Hermès Birkin handbag.

The Real Housewives of Atlanta star posted a picture of a customized Birkin bag on her Instagram account last week with the caption: "#personalized #birkin #neneisms #hermès custom by me & my husband had a fit." The bag, which can cost up to $10,000 and has "Neneisms" on it like "I'm a very rich bitch" and "close your legs to married men!" apparently didn't sit well with Williams. 

"Hot Question: What do think about @NeNeLeakes defacing her Birkin bag?" the talk show host asked her Twitter followers on July 22 and posted a photo of the Bravo star carrying the purse with her catchphrases written on it.

Leakes didn't appreciate the dig -- the feisty blonde then took to her own Twitter, tweeting at Williams: "Don't come 4 me WENDELL," along with a link to a post in which she tells her to "be scared." 

"Wendy I am sure people think that I’ve done something to you, maybe we had a beef or I slept with your man but none of that is true!" Leakes begins her post, acknowledging she's unaware of why Williams has issues with her. "I’ve actually only been nice to you! I gave you a beautiful black $3,200 Celine Phantom Bag to celebrate your 500th show but you haven’t spoken of that! But what you have chosen to do is constantly speak negative of me and lie on me! What you need to do is stop spewing hate," Leakes wrote.

The HSN fashion designer went on to call Williams "the lowest of the low," and even suggested she could replace Williams on her daytime talk show.

"I am sure you’re scared I will take your place (I know you have heard! Ummhmm wink wink) BE SCARED! I have a clothing line on HSN coming out in a few days and I know it must be hard for a black woman to support another black woman but you should try it sometime," she added.

As for that "defaced" Birkin bag? "PS: My Birkin is being turned into a work of art to raise money for a worthy charity something you fail to mention on your show! I don’t have one Birkin I have five now run tell that WIG," she concluded her heated post. 

Williams has yet to respond.

Lizzie Rovsek And Tamra Barney Have Major Drama AT RHOC Reunion
A source close to the show told our Real Mr. Housewife, “Tamra Judge puts Lizzie Rovsek in her place for lying and trying to turn the whole cast against her.”

Fans of RHOC may be wondering what went wrong?

Well this is where the SPOILER ALERT comes in play. If you don’t want to know what happens in upcoming episodes — don’t read the rest of this article.

If you don’t mind, here we go:

In an upcoming episode, viewers will see the drama began when Tamra didn’t attend Lizzie’s birthday party. Our source says, “Lizzie got pissed at Tamra for not attending. Tamra’s daughter was sick that evening, so she missed the party. But, Lizzie spent the rest of the season trying to get Tamra back by making her look bad. She even went as far as to yell at Tamra ‘You’re just jealous because Eddie wants to f**k me’ in front of the cast. She did this off-camera, but then later denied it when Tamra brought it up on camera. ”
An insider says Lizzie brought the drama because she was warned her storyline was boring and she might not be invited back next season.

Bravo doesn’t comment on spoilers. And, Tamra and Lizzie won’t comment about the show’s storyline.

Kenya Moore Falls On Stage At ‘Real Housewives’ Competition In Las Vegas
Kenya Moore joined the tumbling ranks of Michelle Williams and Scarlet over the weekend.

The “Real Housewives of Atlanta Star” was competing in a high-rollers competition on Saturday when she fell during a runway walk segment of the event, reports TMZ. The competition featured housewives from all of the Bravo “Real Housewives” shows.

The ladies were separated into four teams and competed against each other in a series of games in front of an audience at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas. The teams were led by four high rollers.

Ms. Moore’s fierceness faltered when the contestants were instructed to teach the four high rollers how to walk the runway. Moore started off strong but lost her footing, dramatically tumbling and rolling on the stage.

Not to be overcome by gravity's face-snatching reality, though, Moore bounced back up and redeemed her greatness with a series of bountiful hair flips. And though she has yet to release any official comment on the spill, we commend her Beyoncé-like reflexes when it comes to turning a fall into an epic hairography moment.

Kudos Kenya. Your locks saved the day.
