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.
