After months of planning, Nene and Gregg Leakes are married — again! The Real Housewives of Atlanta stars said their “I Dos” for the second time in front of 400+ guests and Bravo cameras in Atlanta, Georgia.

NeNe’s exclusive guest list included the former Real Housewives of New York City star Jill Zarin, The Real Housewives of Miami star Marysol Patton and The Real Housewives of Orange County stars Gretchen Rossi and Slade Smiley. Millionaire Matchmaker Patti Stanger and Atlanta housewives Kandi Burruss and Kim Zolciak were also in attendance.

However, Atlanta’s newest housewife Kenya Moore was too busy to attend NeNe’s lavish wedding.

“I was working in Africa,” Kenya told CocoFab.  “I hosted some shows and I have some other business dealings there as well.”

Ratings for Bravo’s The Real Housewives of New Jersey and  Princesses: Long Island  continue to be a disappointment for the network. However, Kim Zolciak‘s Real Housewives of Atlanta spinoff, Don’t be Tardy, scored high ratings for the season finale.

Ratings dropped again this week for The Real Housewives of New Jersey. Only 2.1 million people tuned in to see Rosie Pierri and Teresa Giudice duke it out on the small screen. Princesses: Long Island also saw a ratings drop as the show did not even rank in the list of Top 100 Sunday night cable shows.

However, over 1.3 million people tuned in to see Kim pee on a stick last Tuesday. Kim announced that she is expecting baby number five on the season finale of Don’t Be Tardy.

The Real Housewives of New Jersey star Caroline Manzo must be one proud mama! Caroline’s sons, Albie and Chris Manzo are continuing to promote their BLK Water and despite the rumors, the company must be doing well—a new line of flavored BLK Water will be hitting shelves this summer.

“And here….we….GO!!! @blkbeverages #getexcited July 2013 August 2013,” Albie wrote on Instagram along with a photo of the new bottled beverages. The four new flavors of water are mango coconut, blueberry acai, black lemonade and tropical punch.

In addition to BLK, the Manzo brothers continue to operate their restaurant in Hoboken, Little Town New Jersey.

Mazel Tov to Flipping Out star Jenni Pulos—who gave birth to a healthy baby girl on June 29th!

Jenni and her husband Jonathan Nassos named their first child Alianna Marika. Alianna weighed in at a healthy 8 lbs 10 ounces.

“Wow motherhood, just had 1 full hour of sleep & feel that this is “refreshing”. Does not matter at all, totally worth it. You all r right!,” Jenni Tweeted after just one day of motherhood.

Last year, Jenni revealed she had suffered a miscarriage just two months after her wedding.

Princesses: Long Island star Amanda Bertoncini triggered an uproar after disrespecting a statue honoring a fallen 9/11 firefighter from Great Neck on a recent episode of the show.

Last week’s episode featured Amanda staging a low-budget photoshoot for her products  in front of a monument paying tribute to FDNY firefighter Jonathan Ielpi and other slain heroes. Amanda’s friend, identified onscreen as Eleca, posed with and on the statue while holding a beverage covered by Amanda’s product, the Drink Hanky.

“It was disgraceful,” Ielpi’s father, Lee, a retired FDNY firefighter, told the New York Daily News.

“It was a slap to the people of Great Neck,” he said. “It was a slap to the fire department of Great Neck and it was a slap to all of the people that were lost on 9/11.”

Amanda has since apologized saying,  “I would like to apologize to the community of Great Neck, fellow Long Islanders, and anyone who was affected by 9/11,” she says. “I would especially like to extend my sincere apology to the family of Jonathan Ielpi. I never meant to hurt or offend anyone.”

Bravo released a statement stating that the footage will not be shown in any future airings of the show, “Bravo would like apologize for any distress we may have caused the family of Jonathan Ielpi and other firefighters. As soon as we were alerted that this was a memorial statue, we immediately removed the footage from any future airings. Again, we deeply regret this.”

It is a rare occasion when reality stars from different television shows interact with each other. The  Bachelor ‘s Sean Lowe and Catherine Giudici  went on a double date with RHOBH’s Pandora Vanderpump and husband Jason Sabo!

The couples most likely were introduced through Pandora’s mom, Lisa Vanderpump, who competed against Sean last season on Dancing with the Stars.

The sixth season of The Real Housewives of New York City is rumored to be the most dramatic season yet. From booze to brawls, Bravo cameras are capturing all the craziness!

Ramona [Singer] has turned into Joan Collins,” a source told the NY Daily News. “She is telling everyone that she is the star of the show.”

And although her castmates labeled her “ridiculous,” only Aviva Drescher has confronted her so far. However, this season Aviva is trying to make amends with Ramona.  In fact, an apology is expected to be given in the first episode! “Aviva tells her how much she has missed her.  She is being so nice to Ramona that it is freaking her out. Ramona hates to be touched, and Aviva is hugging her every chance she gets.”

The biggest drama this season is expected to stem from Aviva and Carole Radziwill, who are feuding over their socialite status. “Aviva thinks Carole is a fake socialite.  She is desperately trying to find evidence that Carole had a ghostwriter for her book and did not get the $800,000 advance she claims.”

On last week’s episode of The Real Housewives of Orange County, Vicki Gunvalson learned that her on-again off-again boyfriend had been unfaithful. Vicki learned that Brooks Ayers had cheated on her with a 21-year-old porn star.

Former RHOC star Lauri Peterson revealed that the porn star was actually a friend of her daughter’s and said that Brooks met the girl at a poker party.

Now, Lauri’s daughter Ashley Zarlin is denying the fact that she and the XXX actress were friends.

“None of my friends are porn stars, hookers, or escorts,” she wrote on Twitter. “I do not know ANYONE who has slept with Brooks other than Vicki. I don’t even know Brooks. My mother was NOT talking about me on the show! Ew.”

“This is exactly why I have not made an appearance on RHOOC this year. Too many of you take reality TV way too seriously and you pass judgement before getting your facts straight. If you only know how much was scripted,”she added.

Tell us- Do you trust Brooks or do you think Vicki should kick him to the curb? Comment  below! By leaving a comment below you will automatically be entered into winning an autographed copy of a Real Housewife’s book!

  1. LOL just another bunch of Bravo crap. There is no way a 21 y.o. porn star or just a 21 y.o. would sleep with that. *gags* Bravo portrays him to be a guy who is looking to be kept. Only Vicki knows him in real life. We only see what Bravo wants us to see!

  2. I thought it was in bad taste for Lauri to bring that up. Why couldn’t she meet Vicki for coffee and tell her privately? I don’t think Brooks is trustworthy but for whatever reason Vicki is hooked on this guy. Hope she drops this guy, even though I haven’t always liked her, she deserves someone better.
