Reality Roundup

The rap sheet on one former Real Housewifeson is pretty impressive.

Josh Waring, the son of The Real Housewives of Orange County‘s Lauri Peterson, has been charged with a felony of grand theft auto, according to TMZ.

Josh was booked on October 10th for allegedly stealing a 2005 Cadillac.  In addition, he was charged with possession of drug paraphernalia, an opium pipe and needles, and attempting to destroy evidence.

Lauri, who starred on the series for four seasons, initially left the show to focus on her son. Josh, who has been getting in trouble for years, struggles with a heroin addiction and even served a year in prison on drug charges.

Well, it’s official! Whether you love her or hate her, Caroline Manzo will not be returning to The Real Housewives of New Jersey next season.

The mother of three opened up about her recent decision to depart the series in her Bravo blog this week.

“Over the past few years my outlook on the show has changed from something I couldn’t wait to show my future grandchildren to something I hope my future grandchildren never see,” Manzo wrote.

“I’ve always prided myself on being a good example for my children and my decision to leave is based on advice I’ve always given them: ‘Be true to yourself and be proud of who you are, you are born with a name and you die with a name, don’t dirty it up.’ Going back to film another season of Housewives would only make me a hypocrite. For me, peace and integrity cannot be bought with money or fame. I practice what I preach, and as I said on the reunion, I’m done.I simply feel that my role has run its course and I have nothing more to give.”

Despite Manzo’s departure, fans of the family matriarch will not have to say their goodbyes just yet. Caroline and her family are already in production on a pilot for BravoManzo’d With Children (working title) will follow the Housewife in her duties as the “ringleader of the crazy circus that is her Italian family.”

“We are having an absolute blast filming it,” Caroline said. “I hope you all join us as we start our new chapter,”

Interesting enough, The Real Housewives of New Jersey may be undergoing a sibling swap. Marked by the departure of her estranged sister, Dina Manzo may be returning to the show In Touch Magazine reports.

Dina, an original cast member of the show, is “in serious talks” to return to the hit reality series after a three-season hiatus. “The timing is perfect,” a source told In Touch.

The changes coming to The Real Housewives of New Jersey cast do not stop there. Producers will be adding three new housewives to the mix next season, another source told the mag.

“They have added three new women — twins Nicole and Teresa Napolitano and their friend, Amber Marchese.”

“The show got really dark,” the insider explained“They needed to bring in new faces to get back to some of the lighter drama that everyone loves from the Real Housewives franchise.”

There is no official word from the remaining cast members Teresa Giudice, Jacqueline Laurita, Melissa Gorga or Kathy Wakile regarding their roles next season; however, rumor has it that Jacqueline’s future on the show is highly in question.

As of now, The Real Housewives of New Jersey has not officially been renewed for a sixth season although filming  is tentatively slated to begin in December. No cast contracts have yet been offered by the network.

The show’s future may be more uncertain now than it has been in the past, given Teresa and Joe Giudice’s legal troubles.

It is no secret that The Real Housewives have their fair share of financial trouble. This time around the former Real Housewives of Orange County star Lynee Curtin is scrapping for cash.

In an effort to get spousal support, legal documents that were filed during Lynne’s divorce reveal that the former reality star is completely broke. According to the documents obtained by TMZ, Lynn only has $100 left in total assets.

The documents claim she only earns $250 a month, a mere $3,000 a year, from her jewelry business.

Although her monthly expenses exceed her monthly income, Lynne claims she lives a pretty meager life—spending only $515 a month.

Lynne and her husband Frank starred on The Real Housewives of Orange County during seasons 4 and 5.  She filed for divorce from Frank in December, and she says she needed to get a loan to pay her attorney fees.

Season three of The Real Housewives of Miami is coming to a close. With the season finale approaching, all of the ladies gathered around and rehashed all the drama during the reunion filming this past Thursday.

“Reunion time!! #RHOM @bravotv,” Alexia Echevarria tweeted on Thursday morning along with a photo of her dressing room.

According to our insider, the reunion taping was a HOT MESS! “All of the women hate Lea [Black] and Joanna [Krupa],” our source revealed.

The Real Housewives of Miami airs Mondays at 10/9c on Bravo.

Drama, drama and more drama! That is what we can expect on the upcoming sixth season of The Real Housewives of Atlanta.

From Kenya Moore offering Phaedra Park’s husband Apollo a sexual pleasure to NeNe Leakes and Kandi Burruss preparing to bust some ass, this is sure to be the juiciest season yet!

Catch a glimpse of what is to come in the extended trailer below!

These southern belles make their return on Sunday, November 3rd at 8/7c on Bravo.

  2. I was thinking about giving Atlanta another chance but from that trailer they can keep all the trash. As for NJ It’s run it’s course, nothing can revive it. Carowhine that is one skank. That Manzoid show won’t last through the pilot unless one of them is blowing Mandy good.

  3. Looking forward to seeing the new girls on #RHONJ. I’m not a big fan of the Manzo’s, but seems like Bravo loves them. The boys are ok, but Lauren bugs me. I’ve seen a lot of negativity about the new Manzo spinoff on twitter. But, I’ll probably watch.
