Another Real Housewives star is spending some time in the recording studio. The Real Housewives of Atlanta star Porsha Stewart is hard at work recording a five song EP.

“I’m in the studio,” she told TheGio. “I’m working on a song that is amazing and it speaks to my past relationship. These [songs] are coming from my heart.”

Good luck, Porsha! However, nothing will ever outdo Kim Zolciak’s hit Don’t Be Tardy for the Party.

Get your bedazzled reading glasses ready! Three of Bravo‘s biggest Real Housewives divas are pushing new books.

The Real Housewives of New York City star Carole Radziwill’s latest book, The Widow’s Guide to Sex & Dating, will be hitting shelves this month. The novel follows a widow named Claire Byrnes who has a voracious sexual relationship with a movie star. Rumor has it, George Clooney inspired Raziwill’s fiction.

Beverly Hills starlet Brandi Glanville will also be releasing a book this month. Brandi’s book is the sequel to her successful debut novel Drinking & Tweeting and other Brandi Blunders. Brandi’s new book, Drinking & Dating: P.S. Social Media is Ruining Romance, will poke fun at her many failed relationships.

Aviva Drescher will also be releasing a book in the coming months. Her memoir, Leggy Blonde, will discuss Aviva’s life experiences, including losing a limb at the age of 6.

The Real Housewives of Atlanta frequent guest star Mama Joyce, Kandi Burruss‘ mom, has finally come to terms with her daughter’s engagement to Todd Tucker. In a recent interview with HLN, Mama Joyce revealed that things between her and her daughter have finally improved.

“I haven’t really talked with Todd,” Mama Joyce revealed. “I decided to stay out of their relationship, and let them deal with their relationship. They’re together, but I’m out of their relationship. It’s much healthier. I have rekindled a very healthy relationship with my daughter, and my granddaughter, and we are in a very good place. I pray and hope that I’m wrong about Todd.”

Internet rumors became a harsh reality for one Real Housewives of New York City star this week. Ramona Singer filed for divorce this past Tuesday after weeks of rumors that suggested her husband Mario Singer had been cheating.

This past weekend, Ramona allegedly caught Mario at their Hamptons home with 27-year-old Kasey Dexter, his girlfriend.

“She saw him there with the girlfriend and made a big scene and called the police,” a source told People Magazine.

“This is a personal and private matter for our family,” Ramona said in a statement. “For my daughter Avery’s sake, I would appreciate everyone respecting our privacy during this difficult time.”

“Ramona has been protecting him,” former Housewife Jill Zarin told the mag. “She looked the other way when people told her he was cheating.”

Amidst all the heartache, many Real Housewives stars sent healing thoughts to Ramona via Twitter. “Sending hugs xoxo,Real Housewives of New Jersey star Dina Manzo tweeted. Beverly Hills housewife Kyle Richards also sent some virtual love by tweeting, “XXOO”.

“Thank you all for the love & support,” Ramona responded to all of her followers on Wednesday. She and Mario have been married for 22 years and share a 19-year-old daughter, Avery.

Perhaps Ramona could ask for some advice from The Real Housewives of Orange County alum Vicki Gunvalson. Vicki’s divorce from ex husband Donn has finally been settled.

According to court documents obtained by RadarOnline, Vicki was awarded nearly $1 million in assets as part of the ruling. Donn also received a pretty penny for the settlement. Rumor has it he was awarded over $633,058 in assets, including their home in Irvine, California and their vacation home in Lake Havasu, Arizona.

Vicki claims starring on The Real Housewives of Orange County put too much pressure on her marriage and she believes that the show is to blame for her divorce.

“There’s some really great things that have come from the show, but one of the downsides was that it broke up my family, and that’s tough to take,” she told Digital Spy. “I think the show had a lot to do with me getting divorced. I think it was too much pressure on a weak marriage. I wonder where Donn and I would be now if we didn’t do the show. But we elected to do the show together as a family. Unfortunately, it didn’t work out for us.”

The couple split back in 2010 after 16 years of marriage.

One thought on “Reality Roundup

  1. Without a doubt in my mind being on a reality show would defiantly put strain on any marriage. Some marriages were already doomed before they took to reality tv. Now that their world is an open book, skeltons in their closets come out, embarrasment sets in and they dont want to look like a fool, more money starts to roll in, drinking is encouraged and stripper poles are all over the place. This isn’t a good formula for any marriage. I truly feel that if the marriage is built solely on love, then it will stand the strain that comes with being on a reality show. I would do a reality show because my husband and I have a strong marriage that has dealt with more problems then a reality show could ever throw at us, plus we could use the cash. Too bad nobody is asking us to sign any contracts, yet. 😜
