Siggy Flicker Reveals Why Jacqueline Laurita & Teresa Giudice Are Feuding On ‘RHONJ’


OKmagazine.com:
The Real Housewives of New Jersey is going to be an explosive season, but the most fiery moment will be the heated exchange between former frenemies Teresa Giudice and Jacqueline Laurita on their cast trip to Vermont, according to rumors.

But the newest cast member on the Bravo show Siggy Flicker spilled the beans on the blowout in an exclusive interview with OKMagazine.com, revealing the true reason the feud began.

“Jacqueline felt very, very hurt and Teresa was very frustrated,” Flicker told OK!. “From [Teresa’s] point of view, she just went through a very hard time in her life.”

Giudice, who was just released from prison after spending almost a year behind bars, is simply just “focused” on family and “wants to have easy friendships,” Siggy revealed, despite their past drama.

“Once you bring up the past you’re going to fold right back,” she said. “Unfortunately, it was not a good trip. Right now Teresa and Jacqueline are not good together.”

She added: “You saw what their relationship was in the past. I always believe there is hope.”

Who Knew? Once Upon A Time There Was A 'Real Housewives of Athens'


Wetpaint.com:
Clearly, the Real Housewives franchises have a reputation for exuding excess. (Yes, Taylor Armstrong, a $60K birthday party for a 4-year-old is a bit much.) With that being said, we were so not surprised to hear that when RH went global and landed in the faraway land of Athens, Greece — where around a million peeps are unemployed right now — it wasn’t met with open arms.

Similarly to the U.S. versions, the Real Housewives of Athens cast showcased the lives of six loaded chicks, all deemed Greek socialites: ex-models (and current TV personalities) Ioanna Soulioti and Annita Nathanail, former bball player Orthoula Papadakou, fashion designer Joe Togu, actress Christina Papa and, surprisingly, an actual housewife named Fofi Mastrokosta.

Despite the fact that more than 600,000 viewers tuned in for the show’s premiere episode, many a Greek paper has called the series out for its lack of responsibility. "Only scandalous blindness... could consider that this series has anything to do with the harsh daily life of Greek women," a newspaper called Ta Nea said of the show. "These are neither real nor housewives.”

As much as those abroad might hate it, we can’t help but be a little curious about how these modern-day Marie Antoinette’s spend their moolah. Maybe Bravo should just broadcast it in the U.S. with subtitles?
Real Housewives of Athens debuted in Greece on March 4, 2011 and lasted until May 27, 2011 before bowing to political and media pressure with 12 episodes and all of one season. The Athens show was never officially connected to Bravo tho, so I'm guessing that's why I had never heard of it.

Sheree Whitfield Hit With Yet Another Tax Lien


Wetpaint.com:
Real Housewife of Uncle Sam?

Sheree Whitfield is in more hot water with the IRS as she's recently been hit with yet another tax lien to the tune of $4,011 for failing to pay 2014 taxes.

This is just the latest monetary issue for the Real Housewives Of Atlanta star, as her stacking financial woes date all the way back to 2009.

Just last year, the feds filed a separate lien accusing the 46-year-old of owing a total of $134,728 in unpaid taxes for 2012 and 2013.

Prior to that, she was hit with another lien for failure to pay $111,000 in 2011 on top of $41,752 from 2009 and 2010. All of the claims are reportedly still active and have yet to paid off.

According to IRS documents obtained by Bossip, if her mounting debts continue to remain unpaid, they will begin to come after her property and assets.
In addition to the towering liens, the Bravolebrity has also faced a pending lawsuit stemming from the development of Chateau Sheree, which has been under construction for years.

Carole Radziwill Goes After Dorinda Medley For Being A 'Sh-t-Stirrer'


Inquisitr.com:
Carole Radziwill is one unhappy camper. She decided to remain on the Real Housewives of New York despite her partner in crime, Heather Thomson, not returning. Now Radziwill has teamed up with Bethenny Frankel and pretty much shut out the rest of the cast. In the beginning, it seemed that she would be bonding with the newbie, Jules Wainstein, but that is no longer the case. With everything going on and the ladies being able to watch the episodes play back, Radziwill has a lot to say about her co-stars.

This season in particular has made Carole Radziwill appear less fun and more uppity than usual. She is currently upset about Dorinda Medley and the comments she has made during her mini interviews on the Real Housewives of New York. In fact, Radziwill was so mad about what was said, she took to Twitter to call Medley out. According to All About the Tea, Carole Radziwill thinks she has been treated poorly, even more so than any of the other ladies on the show. While that may be taking it a little too far, she has been called some very harsh and vulgar things by the women she believed were her friends. Now that Radziwill is on Bethenny Frankel’s best friend list, the two have started to become the mean girls of the group.
It is true that Dorinda Medley has said some questionable things about Carole Radziwill and played both sides of the fence since the drama began this season on the Real Housewives of New York. She seems to be deflecting the hatred for her boyfriend and playing on the bad blood between Radziwill and LuAnn de Lesseps. It all got kicked off when Medley was celebrating her birthday in the Berkshires. Bethenny Frankel had words with de Lesseps and it caused a world of drama between the ladies. A few weeks later, Radziwill and Frankel found themselves being judgmental about Jules Wainstein during a pizza-making event. Since then, it has been a downward spiral.

Recent reports have indicated that Bravo is bored with Carole Radziwill and wants her gone next season. Bethenny Frankel reportedly told Andy Cohen and the people at the network that she will not return unless Radziwill is back. The two have bonded quite nicely this season, much to the dismay of the others. She has never been one to call people out or get upset easily, but Radziwill has had enough. She no longer wishes to interact with most of the cast, even admitting that she is annoyed with Jules Wainstein. Lucky for Radziwill, Jules will not be returning to the Real Housewives of New York for another season.

Which 'Real Housewife' Is a Total Nightmare Behind the Scenes?


NYMag.com:

Thanks to cross-promotion within the NBCUniversal family, it is currently E!'s "Real Housewives Week." This means that E! is getting all kinds of inside scoops about the Bravo franchise, and today we hear from Real Housewives of Beverly Hills and Real Housewives of Orange County executive producer Doug Ross about which Housewife is the biggest pain in the Spanx. Would you be surprised to learn that it is ... all of them?

Ross reveals that when it comes time to shoot those magical opening credits, the Housewives all clamor to be No. 1 Most Important Gal.

"That is some of the biggest political maneuvering with the cast members that goes on all season long and they talk about it from the very beginning of the year, what their placement is going to be," he says. "And, of course, everybody thinks that they deserve to be in the center and explains to me that they must be in the center and if they're not in the center, they're not going to come back next year."

Perhaps for the safety of all involved, Ross says that they shoot the final frame individually, and then put all the women together in a composite. "We actually ask every cast member to hold either the orange or the diamond with their left hand out wide, out medium, out close, and then both hands in the center, and then their right hand out wide, out medium, and out close — so we have all the options," he says.

There is one woman who will not give producers options, however.

"I can't name names, but I can tell you that there is one cast member that we work with who absolutely, positively refuses to hold her thing anywhere but the center," Ross reveals. "And I'm the person who directs the opening title shoot and I had to trick that cast member into holding her thing in various positions so that we actually had the option to put her not in the center. [Laughs.] I'm sure you could imagine who it is, but I will never tell you."

So it's either Vicki Gunvalson from Orange County or Lisa Vanderpump from Beverly Hills. My money is on Vicki, because Lisa can't be tricked.

Teresa Giudice Betrays Melissa Gorga By Revealing Her Drinking To Husband Joe


RadarOnline.com:
Is Teresa Giudice trying to cause marital issues between Joe and Melissa Gorga again? In a sneak peek of this week’s The Real Housewives of New Jersey, Teresa betrayed her sister-in-law by exposing her heavy drinking to her brother!

“Your car has that new smell car,” Melissa, 37, told Teresa, 44, as she responded, “You’ve definitely had too much to drink!”

When Melissa called her a “horrible driver,” Teresa accused her of slurring her words!

“I’m going to call my brother and let him know how much you drank,” Teresa said before telling her brother, “It’s your drunk wife!”

Melissa defended herself by saying to her husband, “Your sister is terrible!”

But they didn’t argue over Teresa’s phone call, as she helped Melissa walk to her house.

Lea Black Starts a Feud with Brandi Glanville


Inquisitr.com:
Brandi Glanville and Lea Black are in a war of words on Twitter.

After an update was shared in regard to the ongoing lawsuit between the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star and Black’s former Real Housewives of Miami co-star, Joanna Krupa, Black weighed in on the situation — and Glanville didn’t like it.

“A t**t walking around w/ tampon hanging out says another t**t needs perfume? Send jury the panties,” Black wrote, referring to an embarrassing moment suffered by Brandi Glanville in 2013.
Black, who starred on The Real Housewives of Miami until its cancellation in 2013, was reacting to an article shared by the Miami Herald earlier this week, in which it was stated that Glanville’s attorneys were requesting Krupa’s medical records. According to the report, the attorneys were hoping to prove that Krupa suffered from feminine odor with her documents, which would hopefully result in the case being thrown out.

“Lea, wow I thought you were classy,” Brandi Glanville responded. “Remind me never to have you over to my home again & mallow you to meet my kids. Honestly sad.”

Camille Grammer on Possible Return to 'Real Housewives' Full-Time: 'We Gotta Talk to the Higher Ups'


9News.com:
Camille Grammer might be making her way back to The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills full-time.

ET caught up with the reality star at The Bravos, where she was on-hand to support her fellow Beverly Hills star -- and the night's headliner -- Erika Jayne. Camille wasn't nominated for any awards at the show this year, but that might change in 2017. The show features the "Don't Call It a Comeback" award, an honor for Bravo stars who make big returns to the shows that made them famous. 

"Don't call it a comeback!" Camille sings. "I don't know. We'll see, we'll see. You gotta talk to Andy [Cohen] about that. We gotta talk to the higher ups."

Camille hasn't been a full-time cast member of RHOBH since 2013, but has made appearances in almost every season since. She admits her guest appearances are kind of the "perfect gig," because she gets to come in and have fun, but escape the drama.

Still, her surprise appearance at The Bravos has us thinking we might be seeing more of Camille when The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills returns later this year. 

"Oh, I love being a part of it for what, it's gonna be six, seven seasons?" Camille gushes. "Oh my god, that's a long time! I call it my dysfunctional family, working with these girls -- but no, they're wonderful. I miss them when I'm not around them. They're fun."

Bethenny Frankel Is Finally Divorced From Jason Hoppy


ETOnline.com:
Bethenny Frankel is now officially divorced from her husband, Jason Hoppy. 


Hoppy’s attorney, Bernard Clair, confirmed to ET that the couple’s split has “finally been resolved” and that Hoppy is “thrilled that this chapter of his life is over.” 

“He is extremely pleased with the settlement that was reached,” says Clair. “Jason looks forward to the future and enjoying that time privately with family, friends and most important to him, his daughter.” 


The couple tied the knot in 2010 and welcomed daughter Bryn, now six, weeks later. They filed for divorce in January 2013 and later reached a custody agreement, though the divorce has taken more than three years to finalize. 


Details of the settlement have not been revealed. 


Interestingly, following the news, Frankel promoted her book, I Suck at Relationships So You Don’t Have To: 10 Rules for Not Screwing Up Your Happily Ever After, on Twitter, highlighting an excerpt about how to get an ex-lover back.

NeNe Leakes Too Busy For ‘RHOA’?


TMZ.com:
NeNe Leakes' streak on "The Real Housewives of Atlanta" is finally coming to an end ... at least based on what's NOT been going on during season 9 tapings. 

TMZ has learned they've been shooting for weeks now, and NeNe is nowhere in sight.

It seemed like she was possibly coming back to the main cast after being named a guest last season. She's been busy with a HSN clothing line, one woman tour, new game show and a stint on "Fashion Police."

Our 'RHOA' sources tell us producers have added at least one new cast member, and NeNe -- the only remaining OG ATL housewife -- doesn't look to be part of plans going forward.

We're told "guest appearances" are always a possibility, but as of now producers aren't counting on having NeNe.

We suspect Kim Zolciak might have 2 little words for her ole frenemy ...

Jules Wainstein Gets Served Divorce Papers


EOnline.com:
The wheels are officially in motion.

E! News has confirmed that The Real Housewives of New York's Jules Wainstein was finally served with divorce papers from her husband Michael Wainstein a few months after learning that the pair decided to call it quits.

The New York court filing shows that Jules has enlisted Bethenny Frankel's divorce lawyers, Aronson Mayefsky and Sloan, for her case, which is also listed as a "contested" divorce. This means that there are certain terms that the two parties cannot agree to, either about getting divorced or about issues pertaining to the separation, such as the division of assets, allocation of debts, alimony, child support, or the custody of children.

Specifics as to what these two stars cannot agree on have yet to be disclosed.

The divorce papers come roughly one month after police were called to the Wainstein home.

E! News learned at the time that the Real Housewives of New York star called the police on her estranged husband after feeling threatened by her ex. "Jules was the one who called the police," a source told us, adding that Jules needed help because Michael was speaking to her in a threatening manner. No arrests were made.

The call to police came shortly after the reality star announced that their marriage has come to an end after eight years together. The insider added, "This divorce is contentious and it's going to be ongoing."
