Kelly Bensimon Does Some Old-Fashioned Shoe-To-Pavement Reporting

You know how Kelly Bensimon of “The Real Housewives of New York City” claims to be a writer? Well, until I peeped this video I assumed she attended swanky events, greeted her hosts, and afterward pulled a little blurb out of her behind for a niche magazine or website. Boy, was I wrong. More »


Alex McCord Admits To Drinking While Pregnant And Other Interesting Parenting Advice

Alex McCord and Simon Van Kempen have been getting flack for their parenting style since season one of “The Real Housewives of New York City.” First there was the time their sons, Francois and Johan, misbehaved at a fancy dinner. They climbed on and under the table and even ate from a guest’s plate. Then,… More »

Entertainment lawyer Phaedra Parks (pictured left), who we told you about in February, will indeed join the cast of “The Real Housewives of Atlanta” for season three — and she’s pregnant.

“The Real Housewives Of D.C.”: The White House Party Crashers And Others Rumored To Be In The Cast

Do the names Michaele and Tareq Salahi sound familiar? You probably know them as the “White House party crashers.” The Salahis are the couple that created a security frenzy when they were able to get into Obama’s State Dinner uninvited. In the media barrage that followed, White House Social Secretary Desiree Rogers lost her job,… More »


An Ode To Our Favorite Drunk “Housewives”

Bethenny Frankel had to do the unthinkable—film this season of “The Real Housewives of New York City” sans the sauce because she is pregnant. “Shooting this season without alcohol was a real achievement,” said Bethenny. “It was like being in the desert without water.” I’m a little disappointed that Bethenny will have to put down… More »


A Potential Atlanta “Housewife” Is Married To An Ex-Con

Back in December we got word that Bravo was considering dumping NeNe Leakes and Kim Zolciak from “The Real Housewives of Atlanta” cast and replacing them with other wealthy and powerful Atlanta women. Now, we’re hearing that entertainment lawyer Phaedra Parks, who counts Bobby Brown as one of her celebrity clients, could be one of… More »


Crazy Idea: What If The “Real Housewives” Did “Wife Swap”?

I, like so many of you, relished last week’s season premiere of the “Real Housewives of Orange County,” the original gangsta of Bravo’s “Housewives” franchise. (You know you can’t wait to watch tonight.) But the fact that they aired the “Real Housewives of Atlanta” reunion special beforehand gave me an interesting idea: what if Bravo… More »


Kim Zolciak’s “Tardy for the Party” And More Reality Star Songcraft

When Kim Zolciak performed her single “Tardy for the Party” on Bravo’s “Real Housewives of Atlanta” reunion this week, she exclaimed that her dreams had come true. Her castmates may agree to disagree. For many reality television stars, fame on the small screen is just the beginning. Like Kim, their dreams often take them… More »

Quick Pic: Check Out That Hot Housewife Action!

Atlanta “Housewife” NeNe Leakes and Orange County “Housewife” Gretchen Rossi faked a make-out sesh for the cameras. This is what I was talking about when I suggested a “Real Housewives” spoof last month. [Beverly Hills, CA, 9/22/09] … More »


Jimmy Fallon Is A Real Housewife!

We love it when Jimmy Fallon dresses in drag and pretends to be his fictional wife, “Denise,” in “The Real Housewives of Late Night.” He did a pretty good job on Monday night: He had the Jersey accent down pat, nailed the self-congratulatory speeches, and almost threw a tantrum, which is about as “Real… More »


“The Real Housewives of Atlanta” Recap: “I Eat Bitches Like You Everyday!”

There were some highs and some lows on the season premiere of “The Real Housewives of Atlanta” last night. The absolute best part was the neck-rolling, arm-swinging catfight, altercation, ruckus, or whatever you want to call it between Sheree and her party planner, Anthony. You see, Sheree had the not-so unique idea to… More »


“The Real Housewives Of Atlanta”: What’s Going To Happen In Season Two?

The Real Housewives of Atlanta” will be back tomorrow night, y’all, and we, meaning Amelia and I, can’t wait. This season, all five of the women, including newcomer Kandi Burruss, get in on the dramz. I’m talking hair-pulling, name-calling, home-foreclosing draaaama. After the jump, I speculate on what will happen in season two based on… More »

A “Real Housewives Of New Jersey” Mystery

With all the hullabaloo over Michael Jackson’s death on Thursday, I didn’t get around to watching part two of “The Real Housewives of New Jersey” reunion until this weekend. So glad Bravo reruns things a bajillion times, because part two was even better than part one! We went over the details of the… More »


An Open Letter To Steve Zalewski

Dear Steve,

We hear from Star magazine that you’re trying to sell some tapes, which show Danielle Staub giving you your “routine blow job,” as Teresa once eloquently phrased it. Some kind advice: Don’t do it. For the sake of our eyes not running away from their sockets, if nothing else. While we understand… More »


Bethenny Frankel Is Crazy In Love

Normally, when reality TV stars talk about how in love they are, I involuntarily roll my eyes. (See: Paris Hilton talking about how she wants to marry boyfriend Doug Reinhardt, only to dump him, like, a week later.) But when I read that Bethenny Frankel from “The Real Housewives of New York City” has a… More »


The Real Housewives Of 2019

We know what the real housewives of today look like. According to Bravo, they’re infighting California real estate agents, squabbling Atlanta athletes’ wives, back-stabbing aspiring New York City socialites, and now table-tossing New Jersey gangsters’ molls. But what will the housewives of the future look like? Photographer, filmmaker, and artist Erwin Olaf has… More »


Five Gems From Last Night’s “Real Housewives” Episode

This week’s “Real Housewives Of New Jersey” was AC all the way, baby! While the Atlantic City plotline seemed perfectly made for drama, there was little to none. Only talks about Lexi (who got back from Greece without going to a water park or contracting some terrible waterborne disease), buh-bies and Teresa’s packing… More »
