The producers of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills are planning on some cast changes for the upcoming fourth season of the hit reality TV show. Rumor has it that the housewife turned widow, Taylor Armstrong won’t be back.

“Producers are looking at other options. They feel like Taylor’s storyline has become too dark and they need to shake things up a bit,” a source told E! News.

In fact, none of the current cast has been confirmed for next season, which is scheduled to begin filming in April.

So, who could possibly replace Taylor? “They have been talking to quite a few new people,” the source added. “There are also discussions about Faye Resnick possibly coming onboard as a full time-member.” Faye, who is not liked by real housewife Brandi Glanville, has made many appearances on the show over the years and has become a fan-favorite on the series. The source also noted that at least five other women have been approached about the upcoming season including Rod Stewart‘s wife, Penny Lancaster!

Adding Penny to the cast would be very interesting considering that Adrienne Maloof is currently dating her step-son, Sean Stewart!

In addition to Penny, the former host of celebrity news show Extra and the star of Plastic Wives on TLC, Dayna Devon is a rumored cast replacement as well!

Being On Display is never easy, whether it’s a housewife or the president, rumors and gossip never seem to fade. Melissa Gorga tells RumorFix that she is sick of the hearsay about her and her family.

“I can’t even begin to keep track of all the lies that are out there right now,“ she says. “Everyone is coming for their 15 minutes of fame with all talk and absolutely no proof to back it up. Keep talking. This is only making Joe and I stronger.”

The Real Housewives of New Jersey star is currently filming season five of the hit reality series and it is sure to be a doozy!

As seen on The Real Housewives of Atlanta Sunday night, new girl Kenya Moore had a biopsy to determine if lumps found in her breast were cancerous. Thankfully, after a long and tiring process, it was determined that the lumps were benign and were of no threat to Kenya’s health.

“My family’s prayers worked when my doctor announced that my lumps were benign. Although I am still at risk, we now have the knowledge to stay ahead of the disease,” the Gone with the Wind singer said in her blog.

“I realize that I have to live a less stressful life and not let people affect me the way they have. My family and friends are the only variables in my life that will ever matter moving forward,” she said.

Kenya went on to say that she is disappointed with her RHOA co-stars. The Beyonce look-a-like said that none of the women, including Phaedra Parks, reached out to her during her struggle.

“I was disappointed when none of my cast mates reached out to me after learning of my ordeal when many viewers did. Whether or not I am your favorite or least favorite person, the bond that we all have is that we are women first,” Moore shared.

However, the future is looking bright for the former Miss USA. Kenya, who is busy working on her forthcoming exercise DVD, will also appear on BET’s 106 & Park to judge the Rip the Runway Amateur Model Contest. on February 25th!

Pregnant Real Housewives of Atlanta star, Phaedra Parks announced this week that she and husband Apollo Nida are expecting a baby boy in May. The donkey booty enthusiast also revealed that she needs to take extra precautions with her pregnancy. Doctors diagnosed Phaedra with Placenta Previa, a serious condition that if not treated properly, may be harmful to Phaedra and the baby.

Because the condition makes it impossible to give birth naturally, Phaedra has scheduled her C-section for late May. We wish Phaedra and Apollo nothing but the best!

Although nothing has been confirmed, it is rumored that filming for an all new season of RHOA is scheduled to begin this April! Yaaaahoooo!

Will there be a second season of Bravo’s reality series, Gallery Girls? We hope so!

In a recent interview on The Not So Soccer Mom Radio Show, Amy Poliakoff, told host Jill Hickey that “We don’t find out until April… it was a great opportunity and I’m waiting to hear back if there is a second season.”

When asked if she would return, she said “I think that anything, good or bad, is a learning experience… I enjoyed it and every moment we (that cast) had together. It was an amazing opportunity.”

The docu-series follows “the lives of seven dynamic and ambitious young women in New York City who tackle the cutthroat environment of the art world while vying for their dream jobs.” (

Earlier this month, we reported that former Real Housewives of New Jersey star, Dina Manzo and ex-husband Tommy Manzo split back in October and that the mother of one is set to star in a new soap opera-inspired television series, Tainted Dreams.

Now, her post-housewives career just got even bigger! The event planner will star in a new reality series that will document her life post divorce.

Dina has signed a development deal with Al Roker Entertainment for the new project, Deadline reports.

“This collaboration will be an opportunity for Dina’s fans to go behind the scenes into her world — which is different than most people would expect,” Al Roker said.

Filming for the upcoming season of The Real Housewives of New York City is still in disarray, and it seems like the cast members, and their families, aren’t too happy about it! Pinto enthusiast Ramona Singer took to Twitter this week stating that hubby Mario Singer isn’t pleased with Bravo!

“They are going crazy. They call the network every day demanding answers,” an insider told New York Daily News of the cast.

However, the RHONY cast has been all of Manhattan this week. The New York ladies have made many appearances, both in and off the runaway for Mercedes Benz Fashion Week. In fact, @TheBravoBitch was in attendance at many of the same events!

Tara attended Project Runway alum, Malan Breton’s 2013 Fall Fashion Show where Aviva Drescher walked the runway. Former RHONY cast member, Alex McCord was also at Breton’s show. In addition, Tara and TBBReality Intern Drew attended the first ever, Reality of Fashion, Reality of AIDS show where Ramona Singer strutted, and slipped, down the runway.

Ramona was also spotted hanging out with the Dancing with the Stars pro, Maksim Chmerkovskiy at the Zang Toi Fall 2013 fashion show.

Tell us, do you think Ramona would be a good candidate for Dancing with the Stars? Which other Real Housewife or Bravoleb would you like to see on the show?
