Congratulations to Jennifer Evers, last week’s winner of the “Reality Round Up Giveaway”!  For more details, and to find out how you can snag some cool prizes of your own, read below!

Is Heather Dubrow, star of The Real Housewives of Orange County moving to Cleveland, Ohio? OH heavens no! However, she is heating things up on the TV Land sitcom, Hot in Cleveland. The New York native will make a special guest appearance on the January 23rd episode of the series. Heather, who filmed the show back in November of 2012, will be playing Nikki, the nemesis of Victoria (Wendie Malick).

Heather had full support from her Real Housewives cast mates who visited her on set, a source tells PEOPLE. Vicki Gunvalson, Tamra Barney and Gretchen Rossi all attended the filming of the sitcom. “All the girls cheered and clapped for Heather every time she was on set,” the source said. Hmm, think they were taping more than just the sitcom that day?

The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills castmate Brandi Glanville has shed one last memory from her marriage to actor Eddie Cibrian. “I donated my wedding gown to a soon to be army wife and I still havent heard about who received it! Well I hope it make someone very happy,” Brandi tweeted on January 5th. All I can say is, I hope the gown brings better luck to the recipient than it did to Brandi!

In other Beverly Hills news, one of the housewives is about to get a HUGE pay day, (like they really need it)! The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Adrienne Maloof and her family are selling the Sacramento Kings basketball team. According to Yahoo! Sports, the Maloofs have reached a deal to sell the team for $500 million! The new owners plan to move the NBA franchise to Seattle, and change the team’s name. While the citizens of Sacramento may not be too thrilled, the Maloofs sure aren’t complaining!

Fun Fact: After announcing the expected arrival of their child, Kim Kardashian and Kanye West have purchased a luxurious $11 million mansion where they plan to start their family. Who was their realtor, you may ask? None other than the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills House-Husband, Mauricio Umansky! Maurico, who is married to RHOBH star Kyle Richards, was a listing agent for the exclusive Bel-Air mansion.

It’s official. Former Real Housewives of New York star Bethenny Frankel has officially filed for divorce from her husband, Jason Hoppy.  According to New York Court records, Frankel filed a summons for divorce- the first step in the long divorce process.

Bethenny proceeded with a scheduled visit to Ellen DeGeneres’ talk show, just a few days after filing. “Do I want to be doing this exact thing right now? No,” Frankel said. “But I can’t just only be on reality TV and show everything when it’s fairy princess, fairytale and then not take my hits when I have to.”

Since the split, Bethenny has been keeping busying being the best mom that she could possibly be to her beautiful daughter Bryn. Bethenny has turned to her fans on Twitter for positive messages and support. “Tweeps,  I need a smile, tell me 1 thing interesting that you can do & 1 you can’t. Me 1st: I can tie a cherry stem w my tongue,” Frankel wrote on January 3rd.

  1. I’m still undecided on vanderpump rules. I love Lisa but not sure about the rest of the cast especially the one that is using an affair with a married man to get her 15 minutes.

  2. Don’t think that Adrienne and her brothers will get all the money. If the deal goes thru, the team’s debts will be paid, the Maloofs owe the city of Sacramento over $77 million, as well as various other creditors. Additionally, the Maloofs are now only 2 percent owners in The Palms Casino, lending to speculation that other family debts led to the looming sale of the team, despite the city trying their best to work a deal to keep the team. The Maloofs have been threatening to move the team since 2008, so why so pressing now?
    As to Vanderpump Rules, I adore Lisa, dahling! but that Stassi is the worst caricature of a mean girl! Did you see the way her lips curl when she tells her bf, Jax, that she is indeed The Devil and better not forget it? She’s thinking, “Man, I crushed that line, this role is just so fitting for Swedish (Danish, Croissant?) royalty!”

    • i actually liked scheana the homewrecker more than i did stassi!!!

      i feel sorry for sacramento… is hard to lose a sports team.

  3. thanks for the great recap brent!

    i cannot believe the maloofs are selling the kings…. i thought they really wanted to stay in sacramento, but i guess it is a business after all and they dont want to keep the fans happy. i am sure the sale has to go through the nba for approval also. i could NOT believe adrienne and paul this week planning a skin line together, especially after what we have heard over the past few months about them!

    LOVE the shahs…. hope to see you mention them more often.

    keep on bringing us the good stuff housewife guy. 🙂

  4. I love Lisa Vanderpump! I think she is a beautiful, stylish and a very funny lady.
    The cast she has on Vanderpump Rules needs to be taken down a notch or 2. I really don’t believe Scheana is sorry for sleeping with Brandi husband. The apology looked fake to me. I think she would do it again if the opportunity presented itself with anybody’s husband so long as it will benefit her.
    As for Stassi she is definitely looking like a Mean Girl & thinks way to highly of herself. I think she might be masking how inadequate she feels to the herself and the world. I also think their boyfriend’s are crazy to be with them! I say run away Fast! I hope they did this just to try and grab ratings. They are just to full of themselves way to soon! I will watch a few more episodes to see if it changes. Sometimes first impressions are lasting impressions and maybe they should all think about that. Just my opinion.

    Thank you Brent (Housewife Guy) for another wonderful Reality Roundup!

  5. It is a fake a-s-s show probably scripted or the people on it probably planned the stories to try to make it get ratings. It is really phony and I hate that they try to pawn it off as their real lives when it is most obviously not. If this is the way these people live and behave, they are disgusting people, most disgusting of all? Stassi and Jax, I hope they can never get another job again after the way they act in this show. The are the lowest class, ugliest personalities I have ever seen on TV.
