It’s been a week full of divorce, rekindling friendships, and some made-for-TV drama.
The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills will be getting quite the makeover for Season 4 as yet another housewife bites the dust in the 90210.
Faye Resnick will not be accepting the offer to become a full-time cast member on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills next season. In fact, Radar Online is reporting that Faye, who has been a recurring cast member on the series for the past three seasons, does not even want to appear on the show in the future.
“Faye is a tough cookie, so for her to say that things have become so bad that she is finished with the show, is a big development,” a source tells Radar. “She’s a very successful interior designer and being on the show is just bad for business — not to mention the fact that Faye says it is ruining her life.”
“After the episodes aired in which she got into an argument with Brandi Glanville and Lisa Vanderpump, Faye started getting all these hateful, nasty tweets — it was just absolutely shocking to her that people are so emotionally invested in the show, and are bold enough to say such ugly and mean things,” the source continued.
“Producers are extremely disappointed Faye won’t be back next season because the drama is ratings gold — but, quite frankly, it just isn’t worth it for her to be on the show.”
Resnick’s decision to not return isn’t the only headache producers of the show have to deal with. Part-time Beverly Hills housewife, Marisa Zanuck may not return for Season 4 either.
In her official Bravo blog, Marisa hinted that she will not partake in the next season of the show.
“In truth, I have moved past all of the drama, and I don’t want to acknowledge it anymore,” Marisa wrote on Monday (March 25). “This is my final blog and I want to dedicate it to all of you that have supported me immensely throughout this experience.”
“I don’t think anyone or anything can prepare someone for becoming a part of the Housewives,” she said. “A Housewife must be many things: she must be media-savvy and tech-savvy. She must think about what she says and its potential impact, she must have a thick skin to handle the constructive criticism and a sense of humor about her to enjoy the creativity of the many writers that blog the show. A Housewife must also recognize that she is not perfect and be willing to learn from her mistakes. If 10,000 people are telling you that you are being a b***h, they can’t all be wrong”
Although Marisa wrote her blog with a sense of finality, she took to Twitter to answer our suspicions:
However, Marisa’s departure of the show isn’t the only question we have about her this week. On a recent episode of RHOBH, we witnessed Marisa ask Kyle Richards‘s husband, Mauricio Umansky to co-list the sale of her in-laws’ mega-million dollar mansion. However, according to reports from The Wall Street Journal, the property sold for $20.1 million with Marisa listed as the sole realtor of the property!
Was the co-listing staged for the show, or did Marisa and Mauricio have a falling out?
“The reports of a falling out are not true,” Marisa’s rep told Reality TV Magazine. “Marisa and Mauricio discussed the co-listing opportunity at length, and it was determined that Marisa would sell the home on her own. There are no hard feelings.”
Sounds like a staged production to me!
NeNe Leakes may have given her ex-husband a second chance when the couple got re-engaged this past New Years, but will NeNe mend the sorry rifts with her ex-best-friend Kim Zolciak?
Not only does the housewife turned actress want to bare no malice with her former Real Housewives of Atlanta castmate, but she’s inviting her to her upcoming wedding!
“[Kim’s] invited to my wedding, and I believe she’ll come,” NeNe told In Touch in an interview. “I’m extending an olive branch.”
The duo recently made up during the filming of the three part RHOA reunion. Part one of the reunion special will air April 7th on Bravo. I am so happy about this, y’all!
Atlanta’s season five newcomer, Porsha Stewart was completely blindsided this week when husband Kordell Stewart filed for divorce after less than two years of marriage.
According to TMZ, the former Pittsburgh Steelers star filed divorce papers in Fulton County Superior Court in Georgia on Friday, March 22. The filing says his marriage to Porsha is “irretrievably broken.”
“Mrs. Stewart is disappointed about her husband’s recent filing for divorce,” Porsha’s rep told Us Weekly. “Mrs. Stewart had held off on filing for a divorce herself and remained committed to the marriage because Mr. Stewart promised to work on the marriage with her. Instead, he misled her and she found out about the filing in the media. Mrs. Stewart hopes to resolve these personal issues privately with the support of her family, friends and strong faith.”
The divorce papers claim that Porsha should not be entitled to any spousal support because she is highly capable of earning her own income. However, Porsha is opening up a whole new can of worms—firing back at her now estranged husband claiming she sacrificed two years of her life to take care of Kordell’s son from a previous relationship! Claiming she left her job and even sold her business to take care of him!
Not only is Porsha demanding alimony from Kordell, she is also seeking full ownership of their Atlanta home!
After a season filled with debates over having children and having a career, the couple’s split isn’t a surprise to fans of the show. Porsha made it clear throughout the season that if the couple were to have children, she wanted to be a working mother; however, Kordell only wanted Porsha to be a typical—for lack of a better word—housewife.
This is going to be one messy divorce!
The filming for the fifth season of The Real Housewives of New Jersey is almost a wrap, however our sources have revealed that there are still some cameras following the ladies!
One of them being star of the show, Melissa Gorga! Melissa is dishing on all the secrets to keeping her marriage alive and joyous in her first book, Love Italian Style: The Secrets of My Hot and Happy Marriage which hits shelves September 17th.
Although Bravo has not yet announced a premiere date for the upcoming season of RHONJ, we guess that the loving ladies of The Garden State will be back this May!
Fans of The Real Housewives of Miami are sure to be happy that the ladies of The Sunshine State will be returning for a third season! Although the announcement has not been officially made by Bravo, the show’s production company hinted in a tweet that filming has already begun.
But are the Miami housewives the ONLY reality stars in Florida? Not for long!
Tulloch Media Communications, Inc. has released a reality television show pilot based out of south Florida. The Real Housewives type show entitled, The Real Caribbean Wives of South Florida “was produced to feature Caribbean wives living in South Florida and across the states, raising families, balancing marriage, career/business, living the American Dream with a cultural difference trying to fit in.” (sflcn.com)
Although Andy Cohen is the master-mind behind all of the Real Housewives shows, something tells me he won’t be involved with this one.
Speaking of the Bravo bigwig, Andy visited The TODAY Show on Friday and was put in the hot seat when asked who his favorite housewife is.
“That is horrible! That is a terrible question,” Andy responded. “I would get in terrible trouble. … I love when any of them really succeed.”
“You know, NeNe Leakes is going through a major period of success — from, of course, The Real Housewives of Atlanta,” he shared. “She’s got a starring role in The New Normal on NBC. I’m especially proud of her right now.”
So it is pretty clear Andy has a soft spot for Ms. Leakes. But who is his least favorite housewife?
“Oh, yes! Let me tell everybody about it,” Andy joked. “Yes! Let me rank my top five least favorite Housewives for you right now. No! Love them all for different reasons.”
