Kandi Burruss Prepared To Take "A Mother's Love" Musical On The Road


Wetpaint.com:
If you can’t get enough Kandi Burruss, just wait — the Real Housewives of Atlanta star may be coming to your town!

Kandi, who recently started filming season seven of RHoA, has had a thoroughly productive summer vacationing with hubby Todd Tucker, making time for friends on a trip with pals Fantasia Barrino and Phaedra Parks, and getting in some studio time to lay down tracks for a new album, but it looks like that’s nothing compared to what she has lined up for the fall.

On Thursday, July 17, Kandi announced to her Instagram followers, “I'm so excited to officially announce the North American Tour Dates for my musical #AMothersLove!!!!@todd167 & I have been working hard on this & its a dream come true to be able to take #AML on tour!”

The tour begins on September 4 in Columbus, Georgia, making stops across the country in cities like Miami, Baltimore, Nashville, Las Vegas, Los Angeles, St. Louis, New Orleans, and New York before concluding in New York City on December 14. 

While that’s definitely enough travel to eat up a major chunk of her time, it’s far from the only thing on Kandi’s schedule — in addition to dealing with all of RHoA’s requisite drama, she’s also bringing back Kandi Koated Nights! 

If she could bottle and sell her energy and work ethic, we’d be first in line first in line to buy!

Lisa Vanderpump Sells Villa Blanca


TMZ.com:
Lisa Vanderpump is selling Villa Blanca, the restaurant she made famous on "Real Housewives of Beverly Hills," TMZ has confirmed.

Real estate sources tell TMZ ... Hilton & Hyland -- as in Rick Hilton -- has the listing.

Lisa is coy about the sale, telling us she merely wanted an appraisal because people have expressed interest in buying the joint.  But our real estate sources say Hilton & Hyland have the deal and are actively looking for a buyer.

The move comes weeks after  the restaurant was socked with a $100,000 punitive damage judgment.   Former waitress Karina Bustillo won that plus another $6K in her sexual harassment lawsuit.
 

Interesting Lisa didn't give realtor Mauricio Umansky -- Kyle Richards' hubby -- the listing.

Lizzie Rovsek’s Leaked Texts About Tamra Barney, Says Tamra Lied About Why She Couldn't Attend B-Day Party


TheHollywoodGossip.com:
Yesterday, Tamra Barney attempted to save face with The Real Housewives of Orange County fans by writing a lengthy Facebook post defending her actions in the previous night's episode.

Essentially, Tamra claimed producers on the show convinced her to ditch Lizzie Rovsek's birthday party at the last minute without providing any details.
Barney says her daughter was ill and she'd intended to give Lizzie plenty of advance notice, but Bravo wanted the drama of a last-minute flake-out.

Today, Radar Online has obtained texts sent from Lizzie to Tamra revealing that Rovsek thinks Barney skipped the celebration because she felt like it.

Worse, Tamra stands accused of convincing fellow cast member Vicki Gunvalson to fake a yeast infection in order to giver her an excuse to stay home.

"I honestly wouldn't have cared if you just didn't want to go," Lizzie texted. "The general vibe I got from everyone, producers included, was that you just didn't want to be there."

Then Lizzie pulls out the big guns, and accuses Tamra of a totally gross violation of girl code:

"The whole yeast infection thing you told Vivki to tell producers wasn't very nice."

Not very nice, indeed. Did she have to go with such a TMI excuse? It was already bad enough that Tamra told everyone about her bedroom quirks.

Ramona Singer Says She Thought LuAnn de Lesseps Was a Drag Queen When They First Met


TheWrap.com:
It was only the first of a three-part reunion for the ladies of “The Real Housewives of New York City,” and things were already getting crazy. When LuAnn de Lesseps’ unflattering nickname, “LuMan,” came up, Ramona Singer revealed that she genuinely thought de Lesseps was a drag queen when she first met her, because there were a lot of gay people around.

“If I didn't love drag queens so much, I would be offended,” de Lesseps said in response. She had thought only Sonja Morgan had used the nickname, but video footage showed Singer using it as well to refer to her.

Morgan was the primary target of the night, though, with some left over for Aviva Drescher, who notoriously threw her prosthetic leg in last week's season finale. Morgan was called “delusional” by virtually every other housewife, save Drescher, at one point or another during the hour.

When Morgan claimed that her husband worked for P. Diddy and had Diddy on her yacht as a guest, they jumped on her to remind her that she doesn't have a yacht right now. Kristen Taekman got so worked up that she jumped up and started singing, “Delusional.”

Drescher tried to jump to Morgan's defense, only to get knocked back herself. When the group started talking about Sonja's claims that she'd slept with Carole Radziwell's boyfriend, Russ, Aviva said, “Carole and Russ had an open relationship.”

Radziwell shut her down immediately, denying the claim and calling her “ridiculous.”

Next week, it looks like Singer goes on the defensive when Andy Cohen asks about her ex-husband Mario. She gets indignant that he would even ask about her personal life in this way, while he reminds her that she's the one who chose to put her personal and sex life on television in a reality show, making the query fair game.

Tamra Barney Deletes Facebook Account; Did Bravo Really Fire Her?!?


Another reminder to never bite the hand that feeds you:
She’s outta here! Only hours after RadarOnline.com broke the world exclusive news that Bravo-bashing Tamra Barney Judge will not be returning for the next season of The Real Housewives of Orange County, the reality TV star abruptly deleted her Facebook profile and left the country!

Though Judge posted nearly daily on her Facebook page in weeks past, all links from her Twitter to the page came up as dead links roughly one hour after Radar’s post. By then, Radar has learned, she was already on vacation in Mexico.

“One more day till paradise,” she tweeted on July 29. “I’m so over the stress of the show and what it’s doing to my spirit.”

Earlier this week, she called out Bravo on the Facebook account for editing scenes to make her look like she had flaked on co-star Lizzie Rovsek’s birthday party.

According to the mother of four, she alerted producers in advance that her daughter was sick and she would be unable to make the soiree, but seemingly desperate for drama, they forced Judge to wait until the last minute to let her co-star know.

“They asked me to wait until the cameras were up in the limo to let Lizzie know,” Judge alleged. “Then they had her call me and say ‘How rude that you didn’t call me.’”

That post was the last straw for Bravo, Radar has reported. According to insiders, the network has had it with her diva behavior, and she won’t be returning for the next season of RHOC.

However, she hasn’t deleted her Twitter profile — yet.

Tamra Barney Slams Vicki Gunvalson For Badmouthing Her


RadarOnline.com:
Tamra Barney was not only angry with Bravo producers after last night’s dramatic episode of Real Housewives of Orange County— she’s livid with her longtime costar and friend, Vicki Gunvalson.

The CUT Fitness owner, 46, slammed Gunvalson, 52, for chumming up to costar Lizzie Rosvek at her 34th bash but badmouthing the birthday girl behind her back.

“Vicki was pissed that she had to go alone! She told me she did NOT want to hang out with Dumb and Dumber (referring to Lizz[ie] and Danielle [Gregorio]),” Barney posted on her Facebook page last night.  
“She asked me how she could get out of going. I jokingly said, ‘tell production you have a yeast infection, its not like anyone is going to check.’ Vicki had No REAL reason not to go and ended up going I jokingly said, ‘tell production you have a yeast infection, its not like anyone is going to check.’ Vicki had No REAL reason not to go and ended up going ……2 hours late.”

While the mother of four was angry, Gunvalson acted two-faced about Rosvek on camera, she was even more upset that her old friend trashed her in the process.

In one scene, Gulvalson tells Rosvek that Barney actually wanted to ditch the party. (Barney previously explained to Rosvek that her daughter was sick.)

“I never told Vicki I did not want to go to the party,” Barney claimed. “But I did tell her that we don’t usually go out when we have the kids, and I did not feel right going to LA in [a] party bus even if my daughter wasn’t sick.”

Barney also called out her former bestie for claiming she was responsible for Gunvalson’s controversial on-off boyfriend Brooks Ayers’ bad reputation.

“No Brooks ruined his own reputation when he was recorded by your son n law calling you names and saying you needed to be beat,” Barney seethed.

Lizzie Rovsek Has a Very Sad Birthday


People.com:
It wasn't a happy birthday for Lizzie Rovsek on Monday's The Real Housewives of Orange County, as almost no one showed up to help her celebrate.

"I'm psyched. It's my birthday! Go, Lizzie. It's your birthday," Rovsek happily sang as she boarded a party limousine before everyone started calling to cancel, citing colds and sick kids. "I don't think I've ever had a birthday party where no one showed up," she said.

Well, Vicki Gunvalson did.

"I knew you wouldn't let me down!" said Rovsek.

"Who's your BFF this day?" Gunvalson asked, clinking champagne glasses before giving a hearty "Woo-hoo!" once they made it to the restaurant in Los Angeles. "Thank God I'm here, or you'd be sitting here by yourself."

But Rovsek may have wished she had been after overhearing Gunvalson telling boyfriend Brooks, before boarding the limo, "I can't believe I have to hang out with dumb and dumber," referring to the party girl and her friend Danielle Gregorio.

Tamra Barney probably wished she had been there, too – to defend herself.

The icing on Rovsek's unhappy birthday cake was Gunvalson talking nonstop about Barney's recent history of stirring the pot – from telling Shannon Beador that the Dubrows wanted to take the Beadors down to telling everyone to be wary of Brooks


"Being friends with Tamra is complicated," Gunvalson told Rovsek. "So, if you are, be prepared to get hurt."

Nicole Napolitano & Teresa Aprea Call Amber Marchese A 'Liar' and a 'Manipulator'


RadarOnline.com:
Amber Marchese is not making many friends in her early going on The Real Housewives of New Jersey

The Colts Neck, New Jersey beauty came into the cross-hairs of twins Teresa Aprea and Nicole Napolitano in their appearance on Watch What Happens Live Sunday, rebutting and responding to various claims made by their castmate in the chat-fest with Andy Cohen

As we previously reported, Amber raised eyebrows telling Melissa Gorga that Nicole cheated on her husband and “broke up a family” as result of her infidelities. 

Nicole brushed off the snide remarks as a desperate volley for airtime, saying, “Amber just likes attention and if she’s gonna get it by making up lies and stories, so be it.”

Teresa added that in response, they “were going to confront Amber, but out of the decency for her children,” they took a step back.  

One contentious area of discussion came to Amber’s health, as she’s a noted breast cancer survivor who underwent a double mastectomy as part of her treatment. 

When a viewer asked the twins if they thought Amber was milking her past struggles for sympathy, Nicole agreed, and pointed out shocking words she overheard Amber saying.

“I wish they would’ve shown more of the footage of her saying ‘I’m gonna use the cancer card’ or ‘THE cancer,’” she said. “I don’t know anyone who says that” 

Teresa said it’s a “very sensitive issue . . . but for her to just come out constantly” and talk about it is over-the-top.
