Reality Roundup

The stars of Bravo’s Real Housewives certainly know how to throw down— both in and out of court.

Months after The Real Housewives of Atlanta star Kandi Burruss filed a lawsuit against her former costar Kim Zolciak, a verdict has been reached. Burruss, who was represented by her current cast member Phaedra Parks, claimed Kim had swindled her out of a large portion of profit off their 2009 single “Tardy for the Party”.

 A judge officially ruled in Zolciak’s favor last week after she responded with her own legal documents, claiming Burruss used the lawsuit as a publicity stunt to promote her now-cancelled spin-off show The Kandi Factory.

“I hardly got anything from Tardy for the Party. That is the truth,” Kandi wrote on her blog in October 2010. “I am not mad about it. I really blame myself because I didn’t handle my business correctly.”

“The truth always prevails,” Kim wrote on Twitter. “Revenge can be bitter sweet but if you sit back and watch karma it can be pure entertainment.”

Kim and Kandi starred together on The Real Housewives of Atlanta. Kim has since left the series and is currently starring in her own spinoff series, Don’t Be Tardy. She and her husband Kroy Biermann are expecting twins.

The pinot may be a little too bitter for one Real Housewives of New York City couple. According to Page Six, Ramona Singer’s husband of 27 years Mario has been having an affair with a young mistress.

Mario reportedly has an ongoing relationship with the young blonde after meeting in the Hamptons this past summer, and there are pictures to prove it!

“The girl said, ‘You’re not going to believe this, but I have to show you some pictures,” a source told Page Six. “She showed me a photo on her phone of Mario’s ding-dong. A selfie text of his naked body, in the girl’s apartment!”

According to the paper, after a few weeks of fooling around Mario reportedly got the young girl pregnant and then paid for her to have an abortion. Although the report claims the two are still seeing each other, Ramona claims the story is indisputably false. “It’s not true,” she told

The former Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Camille Grammer is recovering from surgery this week after being diagnosed with early stage endometrial cancer. Camille “underwent a radical hysterectomy today,” her rep told E! News on Friday. “The surgery went well and she is expected to make a complete recovery following a significant recuperation period.”

 Camille, 45, was at an elevated risk for cancer due to genetic issues, her rep says. “[Camille] has been diligent about regular checkups and monitoring, which explains that early detection and rapid treatment.”

 “Mrs. Grammer expresses gratitude to all the amazing health care professionals who have taken such loving and nurturing care of her. She urges all women to be aware of the genetic factors relating to women’s cancers and get regular checkups.”

Brandi Glanville sent well wishes to her former RHOBH co-star telling E! News, “Camille is a strong woman and I know she’ll come out of this even stronger. She has been a good friend to me and I send her all my love.”

Camille has two children via surrogate with her ex-husband, former Frasier star Kelsey Grammer.

 Caroline Manzo, an original cast member of The Real Housewives of New Jersey, may not be returning for season six of the hit reality series. In her Bravo blog this week, Caroline reveals her true feelings on the never ending Gorga-Giudice feud and discusses her thoughts on Part 1 of the reunion show. Is she really done with RHONJ?

“The back and forth between the Gorga-Guidice clan was predictable, Caroline wrote. “…to be honest, at this point in the game I’m throwing the towel in. Both believe they are right and innocent, and frankly, you can’t berate someone for speaking what they believe to be their truth. One day the sun will shine down on them all and there will be peace in the neighborhood, you gotta believe folks, believe.”

During the reunion show, Teresa Giudice admitted to lying in her blog about the healing vacation the cast attended together. Caroline voiced her feelings about Teresa’s reversal writing, “When Teresa told me she lied in her blog that Al and I fought throughout our Arizona trip I was speechless. I’m not going to say anything other than shame on you, grow up. What she tried to do backfired. It didn’t hurt or cause any drama within the Manzo household, it only made a decision very easy for me — I’m done.”

Despite Manzo’s possible looming departure on RHONJ, fans of the family matriarch will not have to say their goodbyes just yet. Bravo has given the green light to a pilot starring Caroline and her family. Manzo’d With Children (working title) will follow the Housewife in her duties as the “ringleader of the crazy circus that is her Italian family.”

Caroline’s sister, Fran, who we met earlier this season on RHONJ, will also be part of the pilot as she continues to bring in stray animals, including a pet pig, to the house.

  2. I too agree with Caroline Manzo and have grown tired of the “Gorga-Guidice” feud. It has now become ridiculously childish. All families fight, but this has just become what appears to be “scripted drama” for ratings (which RHONJ is already the most watched RH franchise). In my opinion it will become less relevant when the Guidice’s begin there Federal trial, as there concentration will be in defending themselves and keeping out of prison. Wishing the Guidice’s the best and hope that the Gorga’s and Guidice’s come together!

  3. I was surprised to hear Kim won against Kandi. I guess Phaedra was tardy for the party.

    It’s funny how the story of Mario’s cheating came out, and shortly after, Jill claims that Mario hit on her. lmao…

    As far as the Giudice/Gorga feud, I think both parties are guilty and maybe playing it up for the cameras, which is making things worse. They are constantly apologizing, forgiving, but then they start doing it all over again. They say they have worked it out, and they are in a better place, but they go back to square one and nothing has been resolved. 😦
