Carole Radziwill is rubbing elbows with some celebrities at the Oscar pre-parties:
“At CAA Oscar party. Just chatted with Sally Fields. Sweetest lady ever. Norma Rae!!!!!
The after party stragglers. Leo, Bradley….yes, them. Gnite.”
Still no word on who is back for the next season of Real Housewives of New York but Carole seems a shoe-in. I have to wonder why she wants to be on the show, but it has helped her book sales.
Paris tweeted a photo of her aunts and older cousins yesterday.
Kenya Moore has released her Stallion Booty Workout
The Manzos say goodbye to Greg Bennett. Greg is moving to San Francisco in a week. He tweeted earlier this year that he hadn’t filmed at all for Real Housewives of New Jersey, and about a month ago that he found a perfect apartment in San Francisco. Goodbye Greggy.
Real Housewives of New Jersey Filming Together Last Night
There were reports on twitter that all of the Real Housewives of New Jersey were filming together last night. This comes after reports that the Giudices and Gorgas were picked up by production and dropped into a cage until Joey and Joe ended up in a fistfight resulting then with clever editing it will be made to look like Teresa phoned Caroline to come in and make peace. No kidding – that’s the rumor. But last night it was all smiles at the NephCure event where four of the five couples were together to support the charity. Teresa was the headlining guest, but the husbands and kids were there as well. Minus Caroline and Al who were on their way to Miami. Caroline confirmed this by tweeting a photo of Al on the plane.
As for the others – sure looks like they were getting along. Gia Giudice tweeted photos with each of her three cousins with the words love in the taglines. I’d like to believe that the adults are acting like adults and letting the kids get along.
A few more photos Teresa just tweeted:
Video from Milania launch. (Caution – Teresa has trouble finding words – especially ingredients.
Brandi Glanville has something to Say
“Here is my response 2 the statement my ex’s publicist put out about me this am “Go Fuck Urself” & u can quote me.”
If you’re wondering why Brandi tweeted this – it was in response to this statement released by Eddie’s publicist Marcel Pariseau (and reported in RadarOnline).
“Brandi might consider getting some help with her drinking. If you watch her show, read her book and follow her tweets, she is constantly referring to her drinking. Even the title of her book has the word drinking in it. In fact, she was arrested for a DUI. It is a fact that after a night of drinking in Vegas she married her ex-best friend’s ex-husband.
In reality [Eddie Cibrian] has two films in the can and recurring on two television shows. [Brandi] makes it sound like they are scraping by but read her book where she devotes a whole page to what she does to her face; fillers, botox, skintreatments, etc. And just recently on Entertainment Tonight had botox done to her hands. All of that doesn’t come cheap. Eddie pays for all of the boys expenses like school, sports, clothing, etc.
Brandi is one of the most narcissistic people around. She never takes responsibility for anything. Basically everyone past and present is at fault but no fault lies with her. Read the description of Narcissistic Personality Disorder and tell me what you think? I thought this ‘memoir’ was to help other women and to empower them? Do her actions and words resonate with the definition of a role model? I think not!”
The publicist was responding to Brandi calling LeAnn Rimes unstable and in need of help.
All of this feuding has led to the big payoff for Brandi Glanville. The New York Times Best Seller list. Number two combined e-books and print. Number one e-books. Congrats Brandi!

Sorry guys – Adrienne, The Martyr is just too busy organizing her lies by date and category and paying $25,000 to kiss married men – to bother to write a blog for us this week.
Brandi starts out her blog by apologizing for not blogging last week – but she’s been too busy making appearances and plugging her book to keep up with her measly lil blog… well, a girl’s gotta do what a girl’s gotta do, I guess… then she mentioned Kim’s nose doctor by name again (as if Kim and Kyle hadn’t mentioned the guy by name enough to cover the costs of the nose job). She also dissed Adrienne for making comments at the great nose unveiling that Paul could have done at least as good of a job. Actually, the comments that Adrienne made were really the nicest comments I think I’ve ever heard her make about Paul…. Ever. Brandi then goes on about how she thought that the women were not fair to Taylor in this episode. You can read all about the great Kennedy Caper in Kyle and Taylor’s blogs.
“Also we all knew exactly who Taylor was dating at the time because it was all over the press. I don’t know why but I feel like there is more to this scenario then we all know.”
Brandi, I’m sure you do know why. You just aren’t saying. It’s prolly just that Taylor (allegedly) is dating a lying cheater who cheats… and isn’t he also an attorney? I’d look it up, but frankly, I don’t want to give them that kind of time and effort.
“Regardless it’s definitely not party chatter or mean girl gossip. Why on earth is this a conversation being had with Adrienne, Faye, and Marisa — who said herself she doesn’t even know Taylor? I’m not sure why I feel this way, but I just feel like some of these women get off when others — even their BFs and those less fortunate than themselves — fail. I mean would you rather have Kennedy with tipsy Taylor right now or having fun with Portia?”
It makes me really cranky to feel like I should be defending Taylor right now. I mean, really – didn’t we ALL know there had to be more to the story about who was supposed to be watching Kennedy?
“Moving on. . .The white party! Kyle’s white party is the first time I will be seeing Paul and Adrienne since our big blow up. In the car on the way to the party, Paul and Adrienne have a confusing conversation about speaking to their lawyer or not speaking to him. . .”
The conversation seemed to be purposefully vague. When you lie – it’s hard to keep it all straight. It’s like a thousand thoughts were flying through Adrienne’s mind, “Wait… did I say there was a letter or not? Did I say I even talked to a lawyer or not? Since I never filed an actual lawsuit – but only had my attorney send a letter – I think I can pretend like I didn’t initiate a lawyer’s involvement – or better yet, I’ll say that I had no choice but to get my attorney involved… cuz you know… There was no way I could actually just call Brandi directly since I haven’t learned how to use my new IPhone yet.”
“Plain and simple there was a threat of lawsuit, which required me to hire a lawyer to defend myself. The other funny thing about their car ride over is that Adrienne said I didn’t have money for anything but plastic surgery… Wow! The two surgeries I did have (my boobs and my po-po done) were both on my ex-husbands dime. Now, if anyone shouldn’t be talking plastic surgery it’s Adrienne because clearly she has had more then all of us combined and is either getting it for free or at a discounted rate, which shows in the work.”
It was kinda funny that a plastic surgeon was involved in a conversation that was all about dissin’ someone for having plastic surgery. Nice zing, Brandi… “[Adrienne] is either getting it for free or at a discounted rate, which shows in the work.” It just goes to show you, you get what you pay for… or don’t pay for… Unless of course, you’re down for the duck lip look [insert groan here…]…
“Once at the party Adrienne and Lisa collide and during their hellos Adrienne gets her body makeup on Lisa. Lisa brings up the fact that on two separate occasions Adrienne has ruined her furniture. Rather then apologize or offer to reimburse Lisa for ruining her furniture, she just shrugs it off as any rich entitled person without a conscience would. It’s Adriennes world and we are all just lucky to be there.”
(In my best Clint Eastwood voice), “Do you feel lucky… well, do you?” Lolol…
“I arrive with two long time friends and am chewing my gum HARD, like a truck driver a sign of my ever present and growing anxiety. I just want this all to be done.”
I’m surprised you weren’t tackled by dentists wanting your business.
“I printed out all the email exchanges and tweets between Berni, myself and our lawyers and even brought copies of my bills. During our conversation they admit to hiring a lawyer to deal with me because they want to control what comes out of my mouth. I show Paul some of the Facebook, email, and tweets that Bernie put out to the public about me and my children and he says he will fire Bernie. Everyone joins in the conversation and Ken lets Paul have it. Sooo sexy!”
The thing is… Paul may not have known what Berni was doing and saying… but I find it hard to believe Adrienne didn’t know.
“My relationship with Ken and Lisa is just simply that they feel like family to me. I jokingly flirt with Ken because Lisa is a secure woman and doesn’t mind and that is it. Now back to the dance floor to find my real boyfriend.”
It seems like perfectly harmless flirtation – especially since it often happens when Ken isn’t even around.
“Yolanda is so smart to keep skipping these parties!”
You’re right, Yo is pretty danged smart to stay away… but she may soon be out of a job.
Sorry guys – Camille is just too busy retooling her yucky Season 1 image that recently reared its ugly head and figuring out an actual storyline so she doesn’t get fired – to bother to write a blog for us this week.
Sorry guys – Kim is just too busy admiring her new nose in the mirror – to bother to write a blog for us this week.
“Kim was excited to show all of us her nose, but more importantly, she was looking forward to having her friends over to her new home. That day, Kennedy stopped by with her nanny to pick something up. I asked the nanny if Kennedy could stay and play with us. The nanny said “let me see” and went outside with the kids for a bit. When she came back in I asked if Kennedy was staying and she said yes. I assumed that she had called and asked Taylor. Imagine my surprise when Taylor didn’t know I had her! At first I felt like I had done something wrong! Taylor had arranged for Kennedy to go to her mom’s for the weekend and had no clue the nanny had decided to let her stay and play with Portia. I thought I would be seeing Taylor at Kim’s and that she would be happy I brought both the girls with me. Some of this was discussed, but not all of our phone conversation was aired.”
It’s so kewl you wanted Kennedy to hang out with you and Portia – but why didn’t you text or call Taylor to make sure she was okay with that change of plan? Then, to make matters worse, you decide to take Kennedy to a RHOBH event that was being filmed? I know you say you thought you’d see Taylor at the great unveiling – but really, if Taylor wasn’t going to bring Kennedy herself – isn’t it safe to say she didn’t want her at the function at all? And actually, a nose job unveiling is not a place that I would want my child – I just don’t like the message. I know Taylor’s had work done – but really, the whole concept of taking a child to something like that without parental okay is just so danged wack-a-doo to me. Kyle knows that Kennedy has not been filmed much at all…Plus, Kyle, there’s just no excuse that you allowed Taylor to appear like she didn’t know what was going on with Kennedy since you freakin’ didn’t tell her!
“My family and I love Kennedy and treat her as one of our own. Kennedy is not with us all the time. However, when she is with us, Taylor knows Kennedy is happy and taken care of. Kennedy has gone through a lot and being in a house filled with kids is a happy environment for her.”
Kyle – this is soooOOooooOOoo not about whether or not your home is a happy environment for Kennedy. I’m sure she has way too much fun for words running around with Portia. Taylor didn’t know where Kennedy was – not because she’s a crappy mom… but because you didn’t tell her. Yes, the nanny should have talked to Taylor also – but you broke the mom code by not clearing the change of plans with Taylor yourself – pure and simple. Why didn’t you take responsibility for not telling Taylor when you were on the phone with her or when you were talking about the situation with others? Instead, the viewers were left thinking that Taylor was just drunk again and couldn’t even keep track of her kid. You are really making me cranky Kyle – cuz your actions and inactions are making me defend Taylor! People have died for less!
“The White Party! I was determined not to let anything ruin our party this year. I had felt SO bad about what happened with Taylor and Russell last year. I have to say, as the girls were discussing the e-mail Russell sent to Camille, there were similarities. However, I had let everyone know that I was not going to get involved with that and I was including everyone in our party and if they weren’t comfortable, they didn’t have to come. I don’t ever want to be put in that position again.”
The thing that I don’t know – is when you changed the rules from last year to this year about allowing litigants at your party – did you tell people beforehand? It’s totally your prerogative to invite and include whomever you want – it just makes people crazy when parameters change from year to year without an explanation, especially in this situation.
“Firstly I want to address the tweets and comments in regard to the tea party and as to whether Miss Resnick was invited. Now as often happens when one of us organizes an event, production arranges transport. I was informed that Kyle wanted to bring Faye. Now I immediately rejected the idea in the aftermath of what had resulted at Kyle’s house previously. I had no intention of reenacting that scenario. So, I relayed my sentiments. Apparently Faye was miffed. I could honestly care less and hoped that as she knew I didn’t want to include her. She would have the wherewithal to stay home. There was no place setting, a chair, yes, but no gift, no place setting, just one for Kim which was taken by Faye.”
Tis okay, Lisa – we can do the math – the one extra place setting was not for Miss Resnick but was meant for Kim. I wonder what would have happened if Kim had actually come to the party? I’m guessing that you had a gift for Kim – where did it go? Inquiring minds want to know…
“When Taylor called Kyle, it was clear that she had been drinking. But I believe that there was some sort of misunderstanding. I recall Kyle telling me the nanny was going to collect her and a decision was made for Kennedy to stay, unbeknownst to Taylor. Taylor believed that her daughter was being taken to her grandmothers, now I think that Kyle should have explained that, rather than us believing that Taylor was devoid of any knowledge as to the whereabouts of her daughter.”
Yeah, that wasn’t nice, was it? And I really, really HATE that I’m defending Taylor.
“Then we see Adrienne and Paul in the car. She finally admitted that there was a letter, because at the tea party she vociferously denied it. Interesting that she also stated that she would never try to ruin somebody’s reputation. . . Mmm I think I have to disagree with that one. Anyway the whole situation was almost identical to last year’s fiasco. The charge had been led by Adrienne and Paul to ban Russell and Taylor, so where’s the difference?”
Adrienne is talking out both sides of her duck lips.
“Ken was not happy with the intimidating letter. He believes that when you know people socially and are continuing to socialize with them, it is redundant to enter into litigation. So he voiced his opinion to Paul and suggested they pay her legal fees.”
Yeah… I wasn’t a fan of Paul’s response to Ken at that point. It was so condescending and creepy.
“And we’re off to Kim’s…where this gum smacker still needs to learn when and where not to chew. It could be worse…I could be learning about my young daughter’s whereabouts. Thank you, Taylor, for putting the “beaver” in Beaver Creek while not knowing where Kennedy was.”
Marisa – you’re trying way too hard to be cute and cleaver.
“However, after reading Taylor’s blog I have a better understanding of what went down. I realize there was a communication breakdown (which happens to all of us), but still feel it was Taylor’s ultimate responsibility to be in complete charge of the situation.”
Ummm… Taylor WAS in charge of the situation – she had a plan. The nanny had her marching orders. Kyle changed the plan and neither she nor the nanny bothered to tell Taylor. I suspect the person who the nanny phoned was Taylor’s mom – telling her about the change in plans. No one told Taylor of the change – so how is that possibly Taylor’s fault? Since this happened a few months ago and you’re besties with Kyle, you and she must have talked about this situation – so you must know how it went down… and yet you still blame Taylor in the blog you just wrote? You must really want a promotion to full housewife status next year.
“As a fellow rhinoplastee (double in my case), I completely understood what Kim was feeling before her grand unveiling. Elective surgery is a nerve-wracking process filled with second-guessing, other people’s opinions, and money that might be better saved on the kids’ college fund — but sometimes you got to say WTF and go for it. If Kim is happier because of her new nose…then that’s all that matters. She seems to be and looks great. I’m hoping this is another step towards her full recovery from last year’s tailspin.”
Let’s not pretend like Kim actually paid any money for this nose job. She and Kyle have given the doctor credit for the surgery over and over… heck, Brandi even mentioned him by name – not to mention all the air time he’s received. So let’s not infer that she made a decision to rob from her kids’ college fund to have this wholly unnecessary surgery.
“Over at Adrienne’s, Paul flashes his old high school speed to get inside the closing gates as a inferno rages nearby. . .turns out his reaction to the fire may threaten more than just the neighborhood.”
Yeah, Paul’s reaction was very telling, wasn’t it? It’s a pretty bad sign when your husband would rather burn down with the house than to get into a car with you and your kids.
I’m going to let Taylor tell her side of the story without much comment… shocking, I know… lolol…
“Let’s talk reality. I’m so tired of friends not standing up and supporting one another when they know the truth. This week’s episode makes it look like I wasn’t keeping track of my precious Kennedy. Nothing could be further from the truth. And Kyle knows it.”
“It was Friday, the day of Kim’s nose unveiling party and I had meetings scheduled through the afternoon. Kennedy was to be spending the weekend with her grandparents in Orange County. My nanny was instructed to stop by Kyle’s house prior to meeting my mother to pick up Kennedy’s iPad. She had left it there during a playdate with Portia and the girls a few days prior.”
“When Kennedy and the nanny stopped by, Kyle suggested Kennedy go with she and Portia to Kim’s event so they could play together. Kyle and I live in the same neighborhood and Kennedy and I are very close with their family. She really enjoys playing and having sleepovers there. She is an only child at our house and being that it is just the two of us now, it can be pretty quiet at times. She loves being around Kyle’s girls and their friends and feeling like she’s part of a big family at times. The relationship has been a true blessing for us both during the last year and a half. I want her to feel love from as many people as possible.”
“Kyle is one of my closest friends and she truly has been like a second mom to Kennedy. The nanny was very aware of the strong bond between our families and knew I would have complete confidence having Kennedy with Kyle and family. She made the decision to let Kennedy stay without consulting me. She did let my mother know that Kennedy was with Kyle and would be coming down to O.C. in the morning. I was not called which was unacceptable. My mother assumed I had approved the change in plans.”
“As you can imagine, I was shocked on the phone to hear Kennedy was at Kim’s because that was not the specific instruction and plan we had for the weekend. I take my responsibility for Kennedy more seriously than anything. Kyle knows this well, and I am hurt she didn’t communicate this and the facts of the evening when the girls were discussing it at the table at Kim’s.”
It sucks to have friends who throw you under the bus, isn’t it? Okay, here’s my thought that’s not based on any facts or anything – but somehow I feel compelled to share well with others… lol… I think that the nanny actually had a hot date that Friday night – and was looking for a reason not to have to drive all the way from Beverly Hills to Orange County and back in rush hour traffic. It’s a much easier drive on a weekend morning with no traffic – trust me… I’m just sayin’…
“When I saw Kim at the White Party, she acted as though I missed her wedding. Seriously. . .there is nothing appealing about watching someone remove bandages from their nose. I am a grown damn woman and I do not have to explain my relationships, the depths of them or “when I am going to see him again” to anyone. I lived through five years of stress and spent the last year angry at the world unable to pinpoint why. I now understand that is part of grieving but let me tell you it sucks to be “Angry Spice” all the time! I was starting to feel like me again, the old me, long before my marriage began. I was reminded of how happiness could feel and I didn’t need Kim Richards’ approval, still don’t.”
Taylor… you’re on a freakin’ reality show… so ummm… all this stuff (including personal stuff) is fair game and it’s all open season. It’s why you’re paid big bucks for very minimal work.
“I could barely contain myself when Lisa was explaining to Adrienne that she leaves a human stain wherever she sits. We all spray tan and this doesn’t happen to us. Perhaps Kyle should save the cover on her white formal chair and years from now, archeologists may think they have discovered another Shroud of Turin.”
Look… Taylor made a joke! Wow… if these women keep on adding comedy and snarkiness to their own blogs… I’ll be out of a job!
