Teresa Giudice Reflects on 'Hardest Year' of Her Life, Thanks Family & Friends for Support


People.com:

Teresa Giudice spent nearly all of 2015 in prison — but according to the Real Housewives of New Jersey star, 2017 has been her most challenging year to date.

The Bravo star took to Instagram on Wednesday to share a loving slideshow of photos with family and friends, reflecting on why she’s feeling extra grateful ahead of Thanksgiving.

“This has undoubtedly been the hardest year of my life,” she wrote. “But as we take a look back & reflect on this year, I’m so thankful to have four beautiful healthy happy daughters, my father’s health, to be able to be surrounded by family and friends who have become family.”

“If the turkey is dry or you forgot some minor detail at dinner tomorrow, don’t sweat it,” she continued. “Treasure the time and the moments you have with the ones you love. #thankful #blessed #happythanksgiving #thankyoutomyfamily #thankyoutomyfriends.”

Teresa, 45, is currently manning her household — which includes daughters Gia, 16, Gabriella, 13, Milania, 11, and Audriana, 8 — solo, while her husband Joe, 45, serves out a 41-month sentence for mail, wire and bankruptcy fraud that began in March 2016. (Teresa served a nearly yearlong stint in prison herself for the same crimes and was released on Dec. 23, 2015.)

Tinsley Mortimer Reunites with Ex-Boyfriend in Chicago



ChicagoTribune.com:
The Real Housewives of New York City” star Tinsley Mortimer reunited with her ex-boyfriend, CouponCabin CEO Scott Kluth, in Chicago over the weekend.The two had not seen each other for more than two months, though Mortimer said they had kept in touch. The pair attended Friday’s Bulls game at the United Center and Saturday’s Magnificent Mile Lights Festival.

“We love each other and we’re hoping we can work it out. It’s a day-by-day thing. This just happened. I just left Chicago (Sunday) and I’m hoping we are going to be OK,” Mortimer said in a phone interview Monday with the Tribune. She cited distance as a factor in their break-up.

Mortimer, 42, said she was in town because she still works as an account manager for CouponCabin, an online coupon resource headquartered in the Chicago area. Mortimer gushed to the Tribune about Kluth’s company while promoting her Black Friday and Cyber Monday shopping tips, which include making a budget and shopping early. Ads for CouponCabin, which Kluth founded in 2003, often aired during “Real Housewives” episodes.

Kluth's and Mortimer’s whirlwind romance began when Mortimer’s “Real Housewives” co-star Carole Radziwill set them up on a February blind date that was shown on Season 9 of the Bravo network series. Mortimer joined Season 9 after moving to New York following a bad break-up.

She would not say if production has started on Season 10 of “The Real Housewives of New York City," but said she’s surprised there's not a “Real Housewives of Chicago.”

“I think it’s such a great town, there’s no reason for there not to be” a franchise, said Mortimer, who didn't rule out a future move to Chicago. “It would be the perfect town to have a ‘Real Housewives.’ ”

Meghan King Edmonds Speaks On Questioning Lydia McLaughlin's Faith


Bravo.com:
It was "game friggin' on" between Meghan King Edmonds and Lydia McLaughlin in Part 1 of The Real Housewives of Orange County Season 12 reunion. The OC ladies disagreed over Lydia's behavior toward Meghan's friend Mystic Michaela, who is an aura reader and psychic medium (clip above). Meghan thought that Lydia didn't treat her bud very well because she doesn't believe in psychics. Lydia stood by her beliefs and maintained that she was friendly toward Mystic Michaela, even if she didn't want anything to do with her aura readings. 

Meghan shared what she took away from her conversation with Lydia during Part 1 of this season's reunion and clarified what she meant by her own comments about her RHOC pal's observance of Christianity on Instagram Monday. "I have an incredibly fulfilling and strong faith in God and in that faith I adamantly believe all groups of people should be treated equally," Meghan explained. "I believe that right and wrong don’t need to be such a gray area if you just listen to the heart that God gave you and I trust that whatever faith you follow - or do not follow - that will you accept love above all."

As for Lydia, she hasn't said much about the tension that transpired between her and Meghan at the RHOC reunion, but it looks like she's not going to let anything — or anyone — get her down. "This season has been a wild ride," she wrote on Instagram Monday. "Grateful for all your love and support. #StayOnMyRainbow."

Luann de Lesseps Shares Her Holiday Hostessing Must-Haves


People.com:
Luann de Lesseps has a few tricks up her sleeve when it comes to surviving the holidays.

The Real Housewives of New York City star is spending Thanksgiving with family in her Connecticut hometown. But right before the holiday, she’s hosting a feast of her own at her new home in Sag Harbor, New York, a former whaling captain’s house.

And while her guests can expect turkey-filled festivities —”It’s all about eating and I’m a foodie,” de Lesseps, 52, tells architecturaldigest.com — don’t expect a traditional dining setup. “I love people moving around; I hate to seat people,” she says. “It’s nice to have buffets where people can mix and mingle and sit where they want.”

As for who’s invited, the newly single reality star has the perfect candidate for wing woman in mind: her costar Dorinda Medley. “She’s the second life of the party,” she explains (herself being number one). “Dorinda is good at hosting. Dorinda you can plop right in the middle and she’s comfortable and happy with that.”

De Lesseps doesn’t reveal her guest list, but she does make note of who’s not invited. The bedding designer will gladly boot guests who “arrive late, are not helpful and get drunk.”

Heather Dubrow Talks Possibly Returning to ‘The Real Housewives of Orange County’


ETOnline.com:
Is Heather Dubrow ready to pick up an orange and return to reality TV?

It’s been a full year since Heather last appeared on The Real Housewives of Orange County, and many fans felt her absence on the just-wrapped season.

“You know, I think it was really good to take a break and take a step back,” Heather tells ET. “It's been a crazy year. You know, I have 'Heather Dubrow's World' and 'Dr. and Mrs. Guinea Pig' podcasts, my YouTube Channel, Heather's Closet, our skincare line … and Terry and I just finished our second book, a diet book, that'll be out next year in 2018. So, there's a lot of fun stuff going on.”

“Of course, I still keep in touch with the girls on the show that were always my friends,” she adds, but notes she did not watch the show this year.

While Heather says “oh, dear” to the idea of coming back to the show, she hasn’t ruled out the idea completely.

“Never say never,” she says. “Real Housewives of Orange County was an incredible experience for me. Five years, made great friends, had amazing experiences and, quite honestly, it was a terrific platform for everything that Terry and I have done, and for our family, so I'm very, very grateful. As for the future, never say never.”

The Real Housewives of Orange County Season 12 Reunion Trailer



EOnline.com:

"I'm off this damn show!"

Could the OG of the OC finally have had enough of going big and instead want to go home? The first look at The Real Housewives of Orange County's season 12 reunion special, exclusive to E! News, sure wants us to think Vicki Gunvalson is ready to pack it in!

The trailer comes packed with the requisite drama, including plenty of shouting, finger-pointing, a glimpse of a teary Shannon Beador preparing to drop the bomb about the end of her marriage, and an early-in-the-game walk-off from newbie Peggy Sulahian, but it's the final seconds with the Queen of Coto herself that made our jaws drop. 

As former BFF Tamra Judge yells "Are you f--king kidding me," Vicki storms off the set, retreating to her dressing room and declaring that she's "off" the show. What drives her to that point? And might it actually stick? Well, you'll just have to tune in to find out.

In part one of the reunion, premiering Monday, Nov. 20, the ladies are reunited and Lydia McLaughlin finds herself in the hot seat, taken to task for her outspoken opinions and actions.
Meanwhile, Vicki gives an update on her relationship with Steve (they just bought a vacation house, y'all!), while Kelly Dodd and Shannon open up about the state of their marriages.
