Have you ever wondered how much Bravo pays the cast members on The Real Housewives? In an interview with radio mogul Howard Stern, The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Brandi Glanville revealed just that! Brandi dished that in her first season on the show, she made $18,000 as a part-time cast member while the other full-time cast members were earning close to $250,000!

“I want what they’re getting because I think I work hard,” she said to Stern.

Maybe that is how Adrienne Maloof was able to splurge 25K on a kiss with the toned Mario Lopez.

The Beverly Hills Housewife attended the Have a Heart Auction in L.A. on Thursday night which raised money for Zeke Kendall, a 20-year-old man who underwent a costly heart operation last month.

This kiss was part of the auction which also featured a dress from the Kim Kardashian Collection and an autographed Major League movie poster signed by Charlie Sheen.

It looks like Mario wasn’t saved by the bell this time…

The Beverly Hills cast shakeup may be more exorbitant than we thought.

As we reported last week, The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Taylor Armstrong might be on the chopping block for season four. However, Taylor took to Twitter to set the rumors straight.

“Let me set this straight,” the widow tweeted. “#RHOBH has not been picked up for season 4 yet. No decisions regarding the cast have been made, period.”

Although a fourth season has not yet been confirmed, the cast rumors have continued! Now, it is speculated that the only two ladies NOT facing impromptu exits are Lisa Vanderpump and Brandi Glanville!

“The only cast members guaranteed to come back for the fourth season are Brandi and Lisa,” a source told Perez Hilton.

“It’s no secret that Adrienne and Taylor were already on the outs – but the other ladies, Kim and Kyle, and Yolanda are also on the chopping block.” The source continued to mention that despite the record ratings this season, the producers feel that the fighting has become too “personal”.

“Viewers want to see the ladies fighting about showing up to a party wearing the same designer, or not being invited to a swanky party. What viewers don’t like is the constant threat of lawsuits between the ladies.”

Rumored replacements include Rod Stewart‘s wife, Penny Lancaster, former Extra co-host Dayna Devon, and familiar face, Faye Resnick.

This wouldn’t be the first drastic casting change in Real Housewives history. Viewers may recall that The Real Housewives of New York City faced a major cast changeup after the fourth season of the series when four of the seven housewives were given the pink slip.

Reality TV star and Playboy model Kendra Wilkinson danced the night away at OK! Magazine’s Pre-Oscar Party. Other celebs, including Kristin Cavallari and Beverly Hill’s Housewife Taylor Armstrong came out to celebrate the 85th Academy Awards Ceremony  at the Emerson Theatre in Hollywood, California.

Kendra will star in the season two premiere of Celebrity Wife Swap Tuesday, February 26th. Kendra will be switching places with reality TV star mom, Kate Gosselin. The two mothers will trade places for a week full of challenges.

The booty battle rages on in Atlanta this week.  The Real Housewives of Atlanta star Phaedra Parks and her husband Apollo Nida released their second workout DVD last week . Now, RHOA cast-member Kenya Moore has set a release date for her own Booty Boot Camp exercise DVD.

The total-body workout “offers three 20-minute workouts that will sculpt your lower body, shrink your waistline, flatten and define your abs, and, most importantly, lift and firm your backside.”

The DVD will make your body (and your booty) Gone-With-The-Wind Fabulous. Kenya Moore: Booty Boot Camp will hit stores on March 5th.

The show that started it all is back for what seems to be the best season yet! The Real Housewives of Orange County returns to Bravo with some new and some old faces!

Joining the returning cast members Vicki Gunvalson, Tamra Barney, Gretchen Rossi, Alexis Bellino and Heather Dubrow is new girl Lydia McLaughlin.

Lydia, an heiress of a wealthy Canadian family, owns and operates Beverly Hills Lifestyle Magazine with her husband, Doug. She and Doug also own a modern art gallery in Laguna Beach. Together, the couple has two sons, Stirling, 4, and Maverick, 2.

Lydia also has her own high end jewelry line for dogs and owns a web design and marketing business.


Viewers will also get to witness the return of former cast member Lauri Peterson, who left the show after season four.

According to Bravo, Lauri will attempt to rekindle her friendships with many of the cast members this season and “reveal shocking information that will rock one of the wives’ worlds.”

Viewers will also get to see Gretchen and boyfriend, Slade Smiley enter full on “baby mode”, Tamra and fiancée, Eddie Judge plan their wedding, Alexis fighting with all the ladies, and Vicki rekindle her relationship with Brooks Ayers.

The Real Housewives of Orange County will return on Monday, April 1st at 8pm.

When it comes to The Real Housewives of New Jersey infidelity rumors are not few and far between. In fact, Teresa Giudice’s husband, Joe Giudice is the king of adultery allegations. Between the infamous vineyard phone call from season four and the endless tabloid scandals, it seems as if Joe can never get a break.

But this time it isn’t Juicy who is being accused of having extramarital relations. A source revealed to RadarOnline that in a conversation between Teresa Giudice, her sidekick Kim Depaola and Penny Drossos, the owner of New Jersey’s Le Chateau Allure Salon, Penny hinted that Albert Manzo has been unfaithful to wife Caroline.

She also implied that Albert has had a mistress for a long time and that it is hardly a secret.

Although we think that this is just a rumor, do you think there is any truth behind this shocking news?
