Housewife News by NoMoreDrama
It’s been confirmed by TMZ! Kim Zolciak IS getting her own full-time spinoff show. That is why she wasn’t in the cast photos for the upcoming season of Real Housewives of Atlanta. Chances are, because Kim didn’t film much with the other cast members, most of the footage they filmed with her will be used in her new show. Kim’s Don’t be Tardy for the Wedding was a pretty big hit – pulling ratings higher than Bethenny Frankel’s spin-off.
More rumors on who is returning to the Real Housewives of New Jersey next year. Hollywood Life is reporting that they are all expected to return – and that there will be some new “friends” added. Maybe some of them have agreed to film with Teresa to stay on the show. It would be hard to give up that salary. Read it here. Teresa Giudice confirmed on Anderson Cooper that her family wasn’t getting a spinoff. Good thing, because Juicy Joe may be heading to jail.
Last night was Peter Thomas’s birthday party. He tweeted out the following yesterday:
Tonight is the Peter Thomas B Day party,free all night,free parking
Okay – turns out Atlanta is hosting the BET Hip-Hop awards this weekend. Lisa Wu was one of the stars that turned out to celebrate Jeezy’s birthday. Here she is, looking like a housewife who’s moved on and doing very well for herself. Photo credit: Jet Magazine (photo by Sly White).
Real Housewives of Miami cast blogs show a divide starting between the ladies. Adriana de Moura was seen flirting heavily with Joanna Krupa‘s fiance Romain at the party at his club. In her blog, Adriana defended herself, “You may think I was flirting, but I’m Brazilian, we flirt as a means of communicating. No malice involved!” before taking a dig at Krupta, saying: “In a nutshell, I think Freda [Lea’s housekeeper]– a dark haired beauty — looks more adorable than a blonde in the morning light!
I’m sorry, but Krupa may be a sloppy drunk but she’s a bonafide supermodel. She’s been on the cover of Glamour and GQ, was on Dancing with the Stars, and has 250,000 twitter followers.
Joanna Krupa struck back in her blog. “It’s obvious that Adriana had no idea what the whole meltdown was about, otherwise she wouldn’t make her nasty comment to Romain, suggesting that he reconsider blondes (“they might wake up pretty, but sure are ugly at night”). Well unfortunately this specific brunette is just plain ugly day or night, and I am not talking about her outward appearance. I feel bad for her fiancé, because why is she flirting with mine? No wonder she doesn’t wear her engagement ring: maybe he didn’t feel she is worthy and never bought her one? She has the nerve to make a comment about me, when here she is, full-on flirting with my man when her fiancé is at home???”
Adriana might do better on Real Housewives of New Jersey. She spent yesterday afternoon retweeting a few nasty tweets sent to Joanna Krupa -from someone I should probably know because he has half a million twitter followers and promotes the “Girls Gone Wild Brand.” Joanna was featured in one of the videos a while back fully clothed. I wonder what she did to make him upset – or is it just to drum up drama??
And she did set the record straight about that elusive engagement ring by retweeting this from her fiance:
As for the other drama of the evening revolving around Marysol and Elaine and the red carpet …
This is what Lea had to say about Elaine ”
“Enter diva Elaine Lancaster. Well Elaine and I go back many years. We aren’t “best” friends, but we are very good friends. … Elaine is a good friend to anyone who will let her be a good friend and has never sold out or betrayed a confidence. She always takes responsibility for her actions, who she is, and the character her counterpart, James Davis, has developed over the years. The diva is sometimes misunderstood, sometimes intimidating, and sometimes brings out the best in people and sometimes the worst. Being around a drag queen is sort of like being drunk — it doesn’t change who you are, but it REVEALS who you are.”
It’s clear Lea is on Team Elaine and not Team Marysol (who dissed Lea by calling her gala disorganized).
Marysol says things without saying them, so you have to read between the lines. But she basically says that Elaine was lying about the red carpet mix-up and the lie is possibly intentional to harm her business, and that the truth will come out in time. Now remember, all of this took place before they knew the show was renewed – so it wasn’t done for Bravo.
I’m a little disappointed with the cast blogs. None of them really told me anything about what’s going on with Elaine, Marysol, and Lea. Grrr. Where are the leaks?
Ratings for Real Housewives of Miami: Uh oh – a series and franchise low. Yup – lower even than last year. Under a million. Still better than most of the non-housewives shows to be fair – but worse than Flipping Out and Top Chef this week. Perhaps it was because it was up against another
Bravo Lifetime favorite – Project Runway. It was Project Runway that brought me to Bravo in the first place. Maybe it’s because three housewives shows on at once is too much. I know it’s too much for me, and I want to like Miami.
Funny tweet exchange between JZ and NaughtybutNice Rob from Huff Post
And on to the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. The ladies are beginning to get a little more active, drumming up interest for the show. Brandi Glanville tweeted this photo of Leanne Rimes and Taylor Armstrong along with the message:
I feel an “I HATE Brandi” fan club coming on hahhahahahhahahahhaha
Seriously Taylor? Seriously? Why are they bringing her back?
Is the Truth Hidden in the Tweets?
Special Blog by Rebecca
Most of these Bravolebrities are not cut out for fame of any kind. As you notice, A-list celebrities are rarely in trouble for twitter remarks. Could it be that they have better things to do, or that they just handle what’s really important to them and let others deal with the nonessentials? Does Angelina Jolie really care about what Chelsea Handler says about her? I doubt it. She has six kids and a career. However, the Bravo bunch of housewives has nothing to do but ramble on and on and on. Every media outlet they can get their hands on, every opportunity to get their opinion out on the internet, every character they can type into twitter skews the line between importance and insignificance.
There’s nothing normal about wasting your time with this kind of nonsense if you’re “real.” A “real” housewife has responsibilities every moment of every day with which to deal. Kids, spouses, bills, houses, and jobs. We’re supposed to have eight hours for work, eight for sleep, and eight for us. Most women can’t fit all these things in our 24-hour days. A “real” housewife caught spending hours a day on facebook or twitter at work would be exposed, fired, divorced, etc. This is the downfall of western civilization –but Bravo seems to be not only enjoying it, but promoting it. Bravo is the new tobacco industry. It’s your right, but it’s very bad for your health. It can even kill you.
These “real housewives” do not, in any means, fit the description of a “real housewife.” It’s doubtful anyone but the cast would call any of the NJ housewives a “real housewife.” The most obvious example is Jacqueline Laurita. Shown on the first season as a stay-home mother of two, she constantly placed herself in high-drama situations, then gave her studio headshot interviews crying and pleading with viewers to see her as the victim.
Every episode she was blaming Ashley for being a bad daughter. She wanted Ashley to appreciate all she had given up for her to raise her. How many times did we see Ashley crying, but painted her as the ungrateful brat? As Jacqueline became more and more caught up in social media, the blame shifted away from Ashley. She’s a product of her environment. Now that we see her environment through the eyes, we see she may not have been brought up by a “real housewife.” During the first season, we see Jacqueline take drinking quite a bit of booze here and there. Seeing full her at the reunion more than a little pregnant, we know that this overlapped with what we saw on screen. She was crying onscreen how much she wanted another baby, but any “real housewife” has to wonder how seriously she took care of herself during that time. Does she always put herself first and her kids second? We’ll get back to that.
Bravo thought it would be a wonderful idea to show a season while filming the next. With the addition of Melissa and Joe Gorga to show, after the alleged audition tape threatening to “bring down Teresa,” they knew something would eventually snap. What was probably an added bonus for them was the reaction of a very unstable Jacqueline. She was so upset by what transpired the night before the reunion taped that she just sat home. Or did she? Sources have come forward to suggest she was ranting and raving to the Bravo producers so much how she was going to expose Teresa, that she was FORCED by the Bravo production team to stay home because she couldn’t control herself. According to her own tweets, she was out all night at the infamous Kim G’s condo drinking and ranting. That car waiting outside her house was to keep her in, not drive her to the taping. One remark from Teresa to Caroline makes this sound extremely plausible. Andy asked Caroline why Jacqueline did not attend the reunion. Caroline cryptically accused Teresa of being the reason. Teresa growled, “we can’t talk about that because that’s next season.” Also, Caroline said Jacqueline was home crying for three days. What did she know ahead of time?
(Please remember that during season two, Kim G stood firmly at Danielle’s side against Jacqueline’s daughter. She was firmly at Danielle’s side even though Danielle tried to harm Jacqueline’s sister-in-law. There may be a quiz later.)
“I feel nauseous and feverish. No reunion for me.Sorry guys.XOXO!”
“I can’t be part of the Charade anymore.It’s unsettling. It’s disturbing & against what I stand for. I’m a REAL housewife.”
So… let’s lead up to this point. Skip to season four, which unfortunately was filmed before the season three reunion so Bravo could mess with timelines to throw us off the trail.
The Fabellini launch party was probably meant to be Bravo’s start-of-season-four party. They get the housewives together and start some little spark of drama to set the season. Since it didn’t go their way, they showed it before the Posche Fashion Show. It doesn’t explain the lying about people not being invited or Melissa’s 100% fabricated story of watching the kids. Did Bravo intend for the set-up to NOT include Teresa have Teresa rejoin the gang to support Melissa against the dancing allegations? Was this all ruined by Jacqueline’s desire to stir up drama? Remember – Jacqueline was crying for three days….. Hence, Bravo left her off the reunion.
@——— last thing I’ll say is Andy Cohen had reunion slated to film 9/27 & changed date just so they could film our fashion show:)
Why was the PFS so important if none of the women were walking in it this year? If these women are the biggest celebrities in Franklin Lakes, why wouldn’t Kim P. want the extra press to promote her boutique? It was a perfect opportunity for a scam.
This could actually be true about Joe. Perhaps the anti-Teresa team members were not invited because the PFS went so terribly wrong. If Jacqueline hadn’t cried setup, there was probably a script to have Teresa defend Melissa. Nobody told Jacqueline, and she just had to stir the pot. She just couldn’t help herself. The look on Teresa’s face said it all. This was not going according to the script she was given.
One very astute viewer made some excellent points:
Notice she now doesn’t say it was a mutual friend it is HER FRIEND!
So Jac will send Joe Gorga the messages but won’t show them to Teresa, wow!
Kim G and Monica C have reasons to set up Teresa, Kim D I think was the pawn to get her to the salon. I am finding this very icky to watch!
Let’s skip to January 28, 2012. Teresa hosts a birthday party for Gia and Milania. Bloggers take to the web to report a nasty exchange was overheard when Melissa confronted Teresa over some photos. She asked Teresa’s photographer to take pictures of her. Teresa told him no, she was not paying him for that. Raised voices. Melissa goes away mad. Just go away. (Sorry, I like Motley Crue). Cut to September 24, 2012. Melissa goes on the Wendy Williams show to claim a physical altercation went down. Teresa can’t say “boo” about Melissa without it making the press. Her sisters and hairdresser would have been all over Twitter to cut Teresa into chunks. The party planner herself took to Twitter to set the record straight.

Is this a last-ditch attempt to stay on the show? Reports are sketchy as to who’s coming back and who’s not. Perhaps money has become the major player here:
Posted Saturday 29th September 2012 from Twitlonger
“#RHONJ WAGES season 4 caroline 265,000 albert 12,000 chris 35,000 albie 35,000 lauren 27,000 Teresa $355,000 Joe $38,000 Gia $5,000 Jacqueline $240,000 Chris $14,000 Ashlee ( for season 3) $22,000 Melissa $65,000 Joe Gorga $45,000 Kathy $50,000 Rich $10,000 Victoria $8,000 Joseph $8000 So I can understand why Caroline needs to think about it, it’s nearly half a million dollars to her family a year REPOSTING this comment from this site: Read More Here”
Look at how much more Teresa was paid then the rest of the cast. Is this because Bravo was going to crucify her this season? I can see how this sets off the great Caroline Manzo. It makes the money squabbling very telling as they are all claiming to afford huge houses and luxury cars… and just how are the Lauritas going to hide this from the bankruptcy judge? Remember Teresa withdrew her bankruptcy petition. She just a list of creditors lined up to take her to court unless she pays them back faster than they can file. Very few have, by the way, so she appears to be paying down her debt.
Before anyone jumps on the Teresa is scum bandwagon because of overspending and underpaying, remember these people have all filed bankruptcy as well – Larry King, Walt Disney, Donald Trump, Willie Nelson, Elton John, Abraham Lincoln, Henry Ford, Charles Goodyear, Mark Twain, Dorothy Hamill, etc. They didn’t stop spending money; they worked harder. They didn’t take to Twitter to take out their frustrations.
While we’re at it, famous people who have children autistic children include Sylvester Stallone, Holly Robinson Peete, Toni Braxton, Dan Marino. They didn’t take to Twitter to take out their frustrations.
Jacqueline has probably lived the most dramatic life of all the New Jersey housewives. Married young, pregnant, divorced, questionable job to support herself, arrested for assaulting a boyfriend, spends money on breast augmentation, snags herself a rich man who was engaged at the time, shotgun wedding, punches sister-in-law while pregnant, befriends a former felon/stripper/drug cartel girlfriend, gets on a TV show where she drinks and fights with Danielle/Kim G/Dina/Teresa, son diagnosed with autism. Oh, she is listed in an $11 million dollar bankruptcy suit for using company funds to furnish a lavish lifestyle, and another lawsuit claiming ownership of some other company’s trademarked water. (This was settled by paying off the other company – they didn’t win the lawsuit.)
Let’s look at the others:
Teresa: college degree, married, four kids, one bankruptcy rescinded, husband totally out of control
Melissa: questionable job, college degree, married, three kids, husband with several lawsuits
Caroline: married, husband’s father killed in mob-style murder, three kids, had a local radio show for a month
Kathy: married, daughter was extremely ill, healthy son, husband with several lawsuits including rubber check writing
Does Jacqueline deserve to badmouth people and fill the internet with cruelty and hate because she has problems? No. The woman has sent out more that 9,400 tweets in three years. Don’t “real housewives” have problems in their lives? Is there time in the 24-hour clock to live your life and crucify people based on gossip and lies? Perhaps she should actually become a “real housewife” and get herself away from cameras and into therapy. She could start with deleting her twitter account.
