NeNe Leakes Blasts Kenya Moore & Other 'RHOA' Stars


Enstarz.com:
NeNe Leakes and Kenya Moore might have ended season eight of Bravo’s The Real Housewives of Atlanta on good terms; but it Leakes definitely didn’t have a problem going off about Moore and their previous feud.

Leakes, who is currently headlining her own comedy tour “So Nasty & So Rude” (which interestingly enough is what Moore called her during a reunion special of the show in a previous season), did not hold back at all when she dished on the drama between her and Moore.

“This b**** is going to come to come and tell me ‘B**** I been in Hollywood for 20 years.’ B**** you was not in Hollywood for no twenty years and if so I did not see you’re a**,” Leakes said during her show at a Los Angeles night club. “You were not in Blac Hollywood, White Hollywood.”

She went on to say that she is the one who made Moore relevant.

“But what I did for you’re a** blew the dust off that crown. You put your a** in my Hollywood. I took the hedges off that for you.”

Katie Rost Put On Blast For Fake Philanthropy


Bossip.com:
RHOP star Katie Rose is being labeled a fake philanthropist over charges her charity for underprivileged kids barely raises any money for anyone but her legal team and office costs according to Globe Magazine:
The only contributions to show up on federal tax forms over the last five years for the foundation are donations totaling $32,000 from her mom, Geico executive Rynthia Rost, according to public record.
On her foundation website Katie talks a good game…but in the last five years the charity handed out less than $3,000, mostly small checks such as $200 to the DC College Access Program.
In contrast, the records show that the operation spends far more in administrative, legal and accounting costs.

Sonja Morgan Excluded from Berkshires Trip Following Bethenny Frankel Showdown Over Tipsy Girl


People.com:
This is what it's like to be on Bethenny Frankel's bad side: Not only do you get non-invited from the Berkshires, but said non-invitation gets explained to you as a good thing, because you are so fragile, because you need to be away from the group, because you need one-on-one time with Dorinda Medley.

Such is the life of Sonja Morgan on Wednesday night's The Real Housewives of New York City, after Frankel took Morgan to task – in skin-peeling fashion – last week over Morgan's potential new Prosecco line called Tipsy Girl.

Of course, that's not how Frankel saw it: In her words, she was very over the whole conflict. Over it. And to hear Medley tell it, since she is the one who did the non-inviting, not having Morgan join the rest of the group for the Berkshires trip was about spending more quality alone time with her, away from outside influences like alcohol and tension.  


But to Morgan? It all felt like "choosing sides." And Medley chose Frankel.

Not that she agreed with the decision. As she told new roomie LuAnn de Lesseps, "The girls love me at parties, I'm the one making out with everyone."

When everyone wasn't talking about the Berkshires trip and Morgan's absence from it, they were talking about de Lesseps' new mystery man (named Tom), who used to date Ramona Singer.

Bankruptcy Case Reopened for Teresa Giudice


ABCNews.com:
A federal judge has reopened a bankruptcy case for "Real Housewives of New Jersey" cast member Teresa Giudice (JOO'-dys), who pleaded guilty in 2014 to bankruptcy fraud.

Giudice finished her 15-month sentence in December after she and her husband, Joe, admitted they hid assets from bankruptcy creditors and submitted phony loan applications to get $5 million in mortgages and construction loans.

NJ.com reports Teresa Giudice's attorneys on Tuesday told a federal bankruptcy court judge she has agreements to pay off all but two of her 29 creditors. Giudice had been trying to block the reopening of the case.

The newspaper says Judge Stacey Meisel's decision to reopen the case could mean unsatisfied creditors might be able to collect potential proceeds from a lawsuit she filed against her bankruptcy attorney.

Ana Quincoces Now A Contestant on "Food Network Star"


Inquisitr.com:
Ana Quincoces may be a name that rings some bells if you are an avid watcher of the Real Housewives franchise. Before The Real Housewives of Miami was canceled by Bravo, Ana starred on the show, and fans remember her for being a feisty woman who didn’t take anything from anyone.

Quincoces was working in the legal field, which gave her an edge, but she was also unhappy with being caught up in cheating rumors, as Karent Sierra’s then-boyfriend had been cheating on her with a woman named Anna. Quincoces has left the drama of The Real Housewives of Miami behind, and she’s now ready to fight again — but on her terms.

According to a new Bravo report, Ana Quincoces is a contestant on Food Network Star, a show about talented cooks who are competing to get their own cooking show on the network. While she was filming The Real Housewives of Miami, Ana was often spotted cooking in her kitchen, and she has admitted that she’s talented when it comes to Cuban food. But the Cuban angle won’t be her winning edge — it will be her ability to make something out of nothing.

“Making something from nothing. I will go into a kitchen with bare cupboards and very little in the refrigerator and I can make something really great,” Ana told The Food Network of this new experience, according to Bravo. “It’s kind of like a challenge. I think if you go to the grocery store and buy every single ingredient you need to make a meal… anybody can do that. So if I have something, some starting point, I will kind of figure something out with whatever’s available. That and the fact that I’m fast in the kitchen. I think I have an ability to balance flavors really well. Different dimensions of flavors and different layers of flavor. I think… the hallmark of Cuban cooking is very much like that. So, I think I have that ability.”

Of course, Ana Quincoces does have working experience in the food industry. She’s a cookbook author and chef, and she’s created a line called the Skinny Latina. She’s a finalist on the show, and she’s so close to landing her own show. Does she have a weakness that could prevent her from winning? No, but she does have a weakness: her sweet tooth.

Siggy Flicker and Dolores Catania Join 'The Real Housewives of New Jersey'


Bustle.com:
The Real Housewives of New Jersey are bringing two new housewives into their circle — Dolores Catania and Siggy Flicker — and, with Season 7 premiere of the hit Bravo television series on it's way, these latest introductions will also be stepping into your living room. One of the newest RHONJ cast members, Dolores Catania, is no stranger to these women. She might be a stranger to some fans, however, which means we need to ask the obvious question: who is Dolores from RHONJ Season 7?

Catania, a single mother of two, is actually said to be a family friend of fellow cast members Teresa Guidice (who has returned from prison for the new season), Jacqueline Laurita, Kathy Wakile, and the Manzo family. In fact, according to All About The Tea, fans have actually seen Catania before in tapings for previous seasons and at events for the show. But there's still a whole lot more fans need to know about one of the show's latest additions.

First off, the New Jersey native is a whole lot more than a housewife and a mom. Aside from raising her two college-aged children, Gabrielle and Frankie, the happily divorced housewife has also held a number of jobs over the years. Catania has done everything from serving as a corrections officer to working as a surgical technician to acting as a realtor in the state she knows and loves. Most recently, she also owns a number of fitness centers in the area and is an active member in charity work as well. Basically, between working, staying close with her ex-husband of 15 years, raising a family, and being apart of the latest season of the Real Housewives, Catania might as well be called Wonder Woman. And, in the latest sneak peak of the new season, it seems like looking for love is just going to be another addition to her already busy schedule.

However, as fans can see in the Season 7 preview, having so much on her plate is just the cusp of what we can expect from Catania. Having a busy schedule, a strong Italian background, and a soft spot for her friends also proves that nothing is going to get past this straight-forward new cast member. At the 2:10 mark of the trailer, she is already letting her friends know how serious she is by screaming, "Trust me when I f*cking tell you, I've had enough of it all! I don't f*cling deal with this sh*t!"

Ahead of New QVC Line, Lisa Rinna Apologizes To Fans On Instagram Over Season 6


FashionnStyle.com:
Lisa Rinna has second thoughts about her recent "Housewives" behavior.

Season 6 of "The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" was very intense for both Lisa R. and Lisa Vanderpump. After Lisa R. accused Lisa V. of manipulating the Munchausen rumors about Yolanda Hadid, the friendship between the Lisas was over.

This drama divided "RHOBH" fans, and it caused Lisa R. to fight back at some of them as well. However, Lisa R. is now having second thoughts about the way she reacted.

On Friday, the former soap opera actress took to Instagram to apologize to fans for any rude comments she may have sent their way, during the end of season 6.

"Last month, as 'RHOBH' was wrapping up, my social media platforms were flooded with intense, unkind messages. As a rule, I prefer to focus only on the wonderful, amazing fans out there because they bring such incredible light with everything they do and say," Lisa R. began the post. 

"Unfortunately, the consistent negativity that appeared on my Twitter, Instagram and Facebook day after day, seeped in and to my disappointment, got the better of me."

She continued, "I used ugly, derogatory words in the comment section of my Instagram account to try and stop the people who were constantly lashing out at me. That's not okay."

At the end of the post, Lisa R. was hopeful that anyone who she hurt can forgive her.

"Please take this as my sincere and heartfelt apology to anyone that feels slighted, hurt or disappointed by my comments directed to a very specific group of Internet trolls," she wrote.

Real Housewives of Orange County Trailer Has More Brooks Ayers Drama, Baby Dreams for Meghan King Edmonds and Marital Woes for Terry and Heather Dubrow



People.com:
Here's your first dose of Real Housewives of Orange County goodness ahead of the new season.

There's a lot to unpack in the first trailer for season 11 of the Bravo show. Read on for (just a few) of the highlights.

The Brooks Drama Lives On

After last season's cancer drama surrounding Brook Ayers, Vicki Gunvalson tells the ladies she's moved on from her ex. But the women aren't all so sure, with accusations flying during the trailer that she still loves him ... which isn't unfounded as the trailer contains footage of Gunvalson telling Ayers over the phone as much. 


But despite the suspicions, PEOPLE confirmed Monday that Gunvalson has a new man in her life – former police officer Steve Lodge, whom she has been spotted getting cozy with on Instagram in recent weeks. After breaking up with Ayers last year, she was previously dating A construction superintendent in Arizona 

Meghan Is Ready for a Baby

Meghan King Edmonds is already a stepmother to her baseball pro husband Jimmy Edmonds' children, and now she's ready to have a biological baby. She's doing so with the help of IVF, and seems quite keen on the idea.

"Baby, baby, baby, baby," she repeats over and over in the trailer for good luck.

Teresa, who completed 11 months behind bars in December, shared several photos of her birthday festivities via Instagram. Dressed down in a white tank top and jeans, she posed with her family while sitting next to a vanilla sheet cake.

"the sweetest birthday with my beautiful girls," she captioned one photo. She added in a second pic with the Gorgas: "With my beautiful family @melissagorga."
