Reality Roundup

Although the fifth season of The Real Housewives of Atlanta is over, the ladies of the ATL continue to be ratings gold for the Bravo network.  However, Kandi Burruss’s spinoff was suffering from low ratings until a recent move to a Sunday night timeslot.

According to Bravo Ratings, The Kandi Factory–which has been Bravo’s lowest rated show–doubled its ratings after the Sunday night airing. The next episode of Kandi’s show will air this Sunday at 10p.m. –the same night NeNe Leakes hits up the clubhouse for a special one-on-one with Andy Cohen.

This coming Sunday, Bravo will be airing a special Watch What Happens Live: NeNe One-on-One where NeNe and Andy will dish on all things Atlanta housewives, her upcoming spin-off and her wedding!

In a preview clip, NeNe admits to wanting RHOA co-star Porsha Stewart off the show for next season.

“I did feel that Porsha at that time needed to leave the show because there was something — I’m a good judge of character; I’ve been blessed, child, I’ve been given a gift. And I kept feeling like Porsha and Kordell were not being real enough.”

Could NeNe possibly want Porsha off the show because of the recent rumors surrounding her fake divorce?

Yup, you read that right! Rumor has it that the newest Atlanta housewife Porsha Stewart and her husband Kordell have been faking their divorce.

Media Take Out is reporting that Porsha and Kordell never planned on getting a divorce. According to the site, Porsha feared that she would not be asked to return for another season of Housewives so she and Kordell strategically planned a dramatic scheme of events that would create a more interesting storyline for herself on the show.

“Porsha found out that she was NOT going to come back on the show – and both her and her husband desperately wanted to stay on the Housewives,” a source revealed. “So they figured if they created a FAKE DIVORCE…. it would be enough drama for them to be asked back.”

And their plan has apparently worked! Since Kordell filed for divorce, the couple has been asked to participate in the upcoming season of The Real Housewives of Atlanta.

The casting rumors continue to circulate in the 90210! Brenda Soleimani , a 40-year-old mother-of-two and wannabe model,  revealed to numerous media outlets last week that she was asked to join the cast of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.  However, despite her self-generated buzz, RumorFix reports that Brenda will not be appearing on RHOBH.

The latest rumored contender for the fourth season of the show is Beverly Hills designer Carlton Gebbia. Carlton, who grew up in London, is a former actress who appeared in television shows such as Suddenly Susan and The Young and the Restless.  She and her husband David Gebbia, the owner of StockCross Financial Services, have three children together and live in a lavish 12,800 square foot home in a gated community.

Carlton is only one of the two additions to the show. The other rumored new housewife is Baroness Monica Von Neumann.

One thing is for certain, however.  After one season on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, Marisa Zanuck is saying goodbye for good to the ladies of 90210.

After hinting about her departure from the show in her blog last month, Marisa told Celebuzz that she will certainly not be returning for season four.

“I wasn’t asked back,” she revealed. “It’s as simple as that and I’m okay with it.”

“Housewives was a once in a lifetime experience and I am grateful that Bravo gave me the opportunity to step into their crazy world,” Zanuck said. “I have no regrets and nothing but love for the amazing viewers that were so kind to take time out of their day and reach out to me on Twitter and comment on my blogs. We will definitely keep in touch.”

Jacqueline Laurita was cleaning her bathroom Monday afternoon when an intruder tried to break into her New Jersey home!

“I was standing right in front of the door he tried to come in. I watched him walk on my deck and in my yard,” Jacqueline tweeted.

The local police zoomed to her rescue and luckily, Jac’s security cameras captured the intruder in the act.

When we saw Jacqueline on Monday evening, the mother-of-three told TBBReality that thankfully her children were not home during the scare.

Are Kandi Burruss and fiancée Todd Tucker of The Real Housewives of Atlanta ready to have a baby ? When a caller asked this question on a recent episode of Watch What Happens Live, Kandi said yes!

“We do want to have a baby together, but we want to be married first. We’re planning on starting as soon as we tie the knot,” Kandi explained.

Although the couple talked about using a surrogate this past season on the show, based on Kandi’s comment it sounds like Kandi may carry the baby herself!

While their wedding date remains unknown, rumor has it that Kandi and Todd will be walking down the aisle in early 2014.

Bravo has announced that the network will be launching “The Real Housewives Awards” as a 2013 digital initiative.

Fans of the Real Housewives franchise will be able to vote in categories like “Most Coveted Closet”, “Hottest Hubby”, “Best Heels”, and more! The winners will be revealed on an episode of Watch What Happens: Live.

Executive vice-president of Bravo, Lisa Hsia told Mashable  that more details about the awards will be announced next month.

One of Bravo’s newest reality series, Princesses: Long Island will follow six young women who live pampered lifestyles at the expense of their parent’s bank accounts.  The new docu-series offers a window into their unique family dynamics and personal lives filled with labels, luxury and love trials.

Princesses: Long Island premieres June 2nd on Bravo.

The fifth season of The Real Housewives of New Jersey will be full of its signature screaming matches, brawls and tears. And we can get a taste of what is to come now that the season five trailer has been released!

The stripper allegations and family feuds continue this season as Teresa Giudice and Melissa Gorga are back at it! However, this season, there seems to be a bit of a role reversal as Melissa is portrayed as the root of everyone’s problems.

Caroline Manzo says in a confessional, “Teresa says, ‘You don’t know the real Melissa.’ You know what? Maybe I don’t.”

Between brother-in-laws brawling, children misbehaving and marriages failing, this season is sure to be a doozy! As Melissa says, “Sometimes you have to hit rock bottom before it gets better.”

Watch the season five trailer below and tell us– what are you expecting this season?
