Yet another Real Housewife has been granted a spin-off!

The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Brandi Glanville is the latest Real Housewife to be given a reality television spin-off series on Bravo.

While most of the Real Housewives spin-offs revolve around engagments and weddings, Brandi’s show will focus on her life as a dating single mother.

“Brandi will be taping a pilot for Bravo,” an insider told Radar. “Putting your dating life on TV for the world to see is never easy, but Brandi’s never backed down from a challenge. She’s ready to jump back into the dating scene and it will be interesting to see what kind of men can actually handle her!”

 Tamra Barney, star of The Real Housewives of Orange County, was one of the fortunate housewives to land her own wedding spin-off series. Tamra’s O.C. Wedding will air on Monday, September 2nd.

NeNe Leakes’ wedding spin-off, I Dream of NeNe: The Wedding will premiere on Tuesday, September 17th. The show will chronicle the weeks leading up to her outrageous nuptials with her ex-husband, Gregg Leakes.

“Both of us want this, so it will definitely work this time,” NeNe told Life and Style last month. “I know exactly what I’m getting myself into. Gregg and I are real adults, so it was better.”

It is no secret that The Real Housewives have their fair share of financial woes. This time around, former Real Housewives of Miami star Karent Sierra is in the red.

Florida Community Bank filed a lawsuit against the popular cosmetic dentist to the stars in Miami-Dade civil court back in March of 2013 over two of Karent’s Miami homes.

Now, GossipExtra is reporting that one of Karent’s homes will be sold at auction to the highest bidder. Court documents show that the bank was awarded a judgment against Sierra for a whopping $1.05 million, including back interest, principal and fees.

Karent is not returning to The Real Housewives of Miami for it’s third season, which premieres August 12th.

The Real Housewives of Orange County star Vicki Gunvalson broke up with her boyfriend, Brooks Ayers after two years of dating.

 “We were dating, but we never moved our relationship to the next level,” Vicki told Us Weekly. “We care a lot about each other, but we are now dating other people… That’s where we’re at.”

Vicki noted that the reason behind their split will be addressed on the season eight reunion show; however, I have reason to believe it may have something to do with the ongoing cheating allegations against Brooks. Rumor suggests that Ayers cheated on Gunvalson after fellow Real Housewives cast-mate Lauri Peterson claimed Brooks had affair with a porn star.

“I wasn’t there and neither was Laurie,” Vicki said about the cheating allegations. “All I know is what I heard from Brooks, which was a completely different story than what Lauri fabricated…Lauri doesn’t know, I don’t know, so I think we can all shut up. I’m not going to defend Brooks, because I wasn’t there.” 

It’s been over a year since Phaedra Parks, star of The Real Housewives of Atlanta filed a lawsuit against Vibe Magazine and author Angela Stanton for defamation, but it looks like we’re going to have to wait even longer for the final outcome on this case.

Phaedra filed charges against Angela over her book, Lies of a Real Housewife. In the book, Angela claims that Phaedra was the leader of an auto-theft ring and that she and Phaedra used to be partners in crime, literally.

Both parties were due in court earlier this year but after Angela’s attorney walked off the case and Phaedra’s witness could not provide, the hearing was delayed. Since, Angela has hired a new attorney and has now filed a counter suit against Phaedra!

Angela is countersuing Phaedra for defamation, tortious interference with business relationships, punitive damages, and attorneys’ fees.

Angela currently provides no proof of Phaedra’s alleged criminal involvement in her book.

Jill Zarin may not be a cast member of The Real Housewives of New York City anymore, but she still knows how to party in the Hamptons.   

The redheaded reality star held her Luxury Ladies Luncheon at her beachfront Southhampton estate in New York last Saturday.

Despite the downpour, many of Jill’s famous friends came out for a good cause—the luncheon was held to benefit St. Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital.

Among the fabulous faces at the event were RHONY stars Aviva Drescher and Countess LuAnn de Lesseps, Millionaire Matchmaker Patti Stanger, The Real Housewives of New Jersey stars Kathy and Rich Wakile, and the hot mess that is Dina Lohan!

Former Real Housewives of Orange County star Lynne Curtin may not be on the show anymore, but it seems like she owes Uncle Sam some of the money she made while she was!

According to documents obtained by TMZ, the IRS filed a tax lien against Lynne—claiming the former reality star owes close to $32,000 in taxes!

Lynne joined the season four cast of RHOC in 2008 and left the show after season five in 2010. Since her departure from the series, Lynne and her husband Frank split after 22 years of marriage. His name is not listed on the lien.

Bravo can’t get enough of Atlanta, Georgia! Home of The Real Housewives of Atlanta and Married to Medicine, Bravo has announced a new Atlanta based reality series, The New Atlanta.

According to Bravo,  “The New Atlanta will follow five of the city’s trailblazers as they strive to achieve their dreams, search for love, and find resolutions to heartbreaks from the past. Fighting their way to the top, each hopes to make their mark in the cutthroat industries of fashion, music, event planning and business while taking advantage of Atlanta’s hot social scene.”

Mona Scott Young, the creator of VH1s hit reality series Love & Hip Hop, produces The New Atlanta. Catch the show’s trailer here.

Viewers flocked to Bravo last Sunday night as 2.7 million people tuned in to see brother-in-laws Joe Giudice and Joe Gorga claw each other on The Real Housewives of New Jersey.

 Based on those numbers, Bravo earned the No. 1 spot on cable television among adults 18-49 in the 8 p.m. timeslot last Sunday—in addition to the top spot among all ad-supported cable channels for total viewers.

Viewers stuck around to watch Andy Cohen host Watch What Happens: Live!, which will air its fourth anniversary episode this Tuesday. Sisters Kathy Wakile and Rosie Pierri’s appearance attracted close to 1.2 million viewers—giving the show it’s highest viewership of the season.

The brawl broke out during a family retreat in which the feuding family members were to take part in various team-building exercises in an effort to mend their broken relationships.

  1. I’m over it in regards to their attempts to fix what’s so broken. It is obvious that neither side is over the hurt and obvious the Teresa will never show accountability for any actions she has taken in the past regarding anyone. They simply need to part ways and heal on their own before they can heal together.

  2. Yes, I’m definitely sick of it. And by the tone of their very current blogs, it seems it is barely better. Unless there is a huge casting change, this is my last season watching.

  3. I am over the Gorga/Giudice family feud to the extent it is being shown on tv. It’s so extreme. Every family has issues, but they go overboard with things that could be resolved in a calm and respectful way. Also, they seem to go out of their way to do stuff behind each other’s backs. Not Cool. But, on the other hand, if there wasn’t so much family drama, the show would be boring and viewership would drop. lol…

  4. Nothing better than seeing Italian Passion at its best! Love a good man fight! Set up a ring and work it out Love Italian Style!

  5. Yes, I am over it. I think Melissa is the instigator & suffers from “Not the girl you take home to mom syndrome.” I think Teresa has tried but Joe is too defensive because he is whipped.

  6. Melissa is the jealous one of Teresa , she was More Likely very jealous of Joe and Teresa being so close as brother and sister and with Joe being a sex addict she used that to her advantage by keeping Joe like a puppet on a string . Why else did She come on the show and I do think she wrote that one song about Teresa ( on display ) cause nobody knew about Melissa when she wrote the song. And Teresa Joe help out Teresa brother by showing him the ropes of the business and Probably never really Thank him , or was gracious to Joe for helping him in the business and I think that where the Joe on Joe feud started . Bottom line Melissa a find to be a lair and a pot stir with Joe and Teresa relationship has brother and sister . Joe her puppet !!

  7. Yep. Sick of the Gorga’s and Guidice’s feud, fighting, arguing, and not listening. RHONJ needs to kick a few off the island. Don’t care who.

  8. Yes and no. Until Teresa learns to accept that everyone is at fault, I don’t think it is worthy of getting over. I hate to say this (I don’t approve of violence) but I hope Joe Gorga beats Juicy’s butt. Maybe it will open T’s eyes finally that her brother & husband HATE each other. But, grow up and get over it? No, this is RH and they are not allowed to. Where would our entertainment go?! That’s why they get such great ratings. We can’t stop watching the drama, it’s like crack…
