The moment you all have been waiting for has arrived! The Countess LuAnn de Lesseps has released the video for “Money Can’t Buy You Class.” It’s amazing what some hair extensions and a super talented makeup artist can do. LuAnn looks really pretty, but the song still sucks hiney! And is it just me or does it look as if she’s giving O-face when the video is at rest? Anyhoo, enjoy … you know you want to click play.

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. I, like Kelly, know the pain of rejection when you’re hitting the pavement trying to report a story. But I often had to interview more nefarious subjects than those expressing their own street style. Catch the rest of the episode tomorrow night at 10 p.m. on Bravo, and don’t forget to hit up the Talk Bubble while you watch. Keep reading »
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, this season Francois was caught on tape climbing a stranger’s leg, which sparked controversy between Alex and Jill Zarin and LuAnn De Lesseps, who ridiculed Alex for his behavior. So it came as a shock when she and Simon inked a parenting book deal.
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. But a more famous “housewife” will get some camera time too. Model Cynthia Bailey, who has appeared on the cover and pages of Essence, has also been confirmed as a new face on the hit Bravo show. Cynthia is the ex-wife of actor Leon, so I’m hoping his fine ass will make an appearance on the show at least once. And supposedly, one of the original “Real Housewives of Atlanta” will make a mid-season exit. Scandal! [The Young, Black & Fabulous]
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, and the Salahis place on Bravo’s “The Real Housewives of D.C.” was apparently cemented. Though initial rumors about the Salahis’ role in the show were ignored by Bravo, it turns out that station already had the couple signed on for the show at the time of the State Dinner. Bravo is even said to have had cameras at the event to capture the Salahis’ illegal arrival. Now that the controversy and threat of legal action against the couple has calmed, Bravo plans to make the couple the center of new series, which premieres in July. [The Daily Beast]
But the Salahis are only one-fifth of this new installment of Bravo’s feisty franchise. After the jump, keep reading to see what housewives are rumored to be bringing some cattiness to Capitol Hill this summer. Keep reading »
