On last night’s episode of “The Real Housewives Of New York City,” Kelly Bensimon attempted to tear Bethenny a new you-know-what for daring to call her “Madonna” at the arthritis charity meeting. Bethenny, as you may recall, was appalled that Kelly wouldn’t put her name on the invitation (Kelly doesn’t lend her name to anything), which just added to her general dislike of the latest housewife.
[Note: Personally, I think the [soon-to-be-former] C(o)untess LuAnn had Kelly added to the show so she would seem less evil in comparison. Totally worked, FYI, as LuAnn seems like Mother Theresa to me now.] Keep reading »
So the bitch factor has been turned WAY up with the addition of socialite and “fabulousity-crowd” lover Kelly Killoren Bensimon on “The Real Housewives of New York City.” Thanks to last night’s episode, we already know annoying/insecure Bethenny hates her guts, but the mannish model/equestrian managed to make the rest of the “Housewives” think she’s a total tool by refusing to participate in Jill’s charity. Is Kelly trying to steal C(o)untess LuAnn’s crown or is she just being given a hard time because she’s the newbie on the show? Perhaps a little digging will reveal the real Kelly….

“The Real Housewives of Orange County” star Gretchen Rossi will become a professional gold digger if she takes sugar daddy matchmaking site UpscaleDaddy.com up on its offer to become their celebrity spokeswoman. The site claims it “aims to bring together beautiful women and successful wealthy men for a mutually rewarding relationship.” Sounds like Rossi, who spent most of her first season on the show spending her dying fiance’s money, will be perfect for the position. Kevin Blatt, the man behind the site, who claims credit for turning Paris Hilton’s sex tape into an international phenomenon, says Rossi is the perfect candidate because she “has a thing for older men taking care of her.” If she accepts the job, she’ll get $100,000, a “Condo in Spain valued at $500,000.00 and a brand new $90,000.00 Mercedes.” Not so fast, though, Gretchen. There’s just one catch. First, she has to take a polygraph test to prove that she was “actually in love with Jeff and faithful to him” during the TV show’s taping. Sounds like Gretchen may well be SOL. Keep reading »
Elizabeth Hayt over at The Daily Beast describes Bravo’s “Real Housewives” franchise as a “post-feminist nightmare that preys on women’s shallowest, least-attractive qualities” in her article, “Wives Gone Wild.” But she, like the rest of America, can’t stop watching. Here’s why you should embrace your love of these women, even though they exhibit the worst of stereotypical feminine traits. Keep reading »
Dude, s**t went down on “The Real Housewives Of Orange County” reunion last night. That busy body Tamra called out Gretchen for supposedly having an affair with her ex-boyfriend while she was taking care of her sick (now deceased) fiance, Jeff. Something tells me that if it’s true, Jeff probably knew Gretchen had a little piece going on the side and was okay with it, since she was doing everything she could to make his final days comfortable and happy. I mean, I don’t think he was give her much action in the bedroom, considering he was in the hospital so much. But whatever, why is it any of Tamra’s business? She has totally had it out for Gretchen since day one, because Gretchen is younger and hotter and Tamra couldn’t stand being dethroned as the Hottest Housewife. Ugh. These people make me sick. In a good way. Keep reading »
Even though cameras have stopped taping, the drama surrounding the people of “The Real Housewives of Orange County” continues.
Slade Smiley, who was shacked up with Jo De La Rosa on previous seasons of “The Real Housewives of Orange County” and tried to help Jo find lasting love on “Date My Ex,” was arrested Friday for “civil contempt,” which usually means non-payment of court fees or child support. He may have been visiting Gretchen Rossi, who joined the cast of “Housewives” for season four, because Slade was picked up on the same block where Gretchen supposedly lives. Keep reading »
Instead of enjoying the season premiere episode of “The Real Housewives of New York City” last night, I just kept thinking about how much I missed the Atlanta housewives. The New York housewives, and Orange County for that matter, have nothing on those ladies. Let’s face it, “Atlanta” brought the drama in its first season… Keep reading »
Last night’s episode of “The Real Housewives Of Orange County” was epic. Gretchen Rossi, the new bitch on the block (she’s the one with the Kenny Rogers lookalike for a fiance), got wasted, just wasted, at a dinner party and totally hit on Tamra’s son Ryan. Watching people get this trashed makes me kind of uncomfortable, in that I know I have been this drunk at points in my life and have probably been just as embarrassing to be around (though I have never, ever hit on anyone underage, I swear). Anyway, the episode ended with Gretchen and Ryan in the bathroom, potentially, maybe, about to get it on. Can’t wait for next week! Keep reading »
The women on “The Real Housewives of Atlanta” sure know how to stay in the spotlight, even when the show isn’t on air. But you know what NeNe would say — “You’re nobody until you’re talked about.” Well, all the Housewives have been talked about since the season finale. We all heard the rumors about NeNe getting her own show (Update: NeNe will remain a Housewife until her spin-off in 2010), Sheree to show off her line,
Sh*t She by Sheree, at Fashion Week, and Kim Zolciak is supposedly dating Lindsay Lohan’s dad. Now one more Housewife is in the limelight, but not in a good way. Our coma-inducing friend DeShawn (or as Amelia likes to call her, DeYawn) has been asked to leave the show…for OBVIOUS reasons. No one was interested in her boring life and whiny voice. But when one housewife’s story isn’t sexy enough for televison, another must step in to fill the diva role. After the jump, find out who has been approached to be the new Real Housewife of Atlanta.

NeNe Leakes may be in talks to get her own TV show (yawn), but she’s not the only one of “The Real Housewives of Atlanta” milking the few last seconds of her fifteen minutes of fame. Sheree has completed her fashion line, She by Sheree, and plans to show it at New York Fashion Week next month. You may remember her first “fashion show” from last season, in which none of her fashions were actually shown, and instead Sheree leaned blown up pictures of her designs against the walls and hoped no one would notice they weren’t the real thing. No word yet on whether this collection is made with fabric or paper, but one thing’s for sure, Sheree can certainly afford the tens of thousands of dollars it takes to put on a show at Fashion Week. She’s taking her ex-husband, former New York Giant Bob Whitfield, back to court to get more than the initial $1 million she got in her divorce settlement. Designers like Betsey Johnson and Vera Wang aren’t showing collections in the tents this year, but Sheree is. Could this be the first sign we’re quickly moving into a Depression?
