Another day, another Real Housewives offspring gone wild! The seventeen-year-old daughter of Yolanda Foster, star of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, was arrested earlier last week for driving under the influence.

Bella Hadid was arrested around four in the morning this past Tuesday after allegedly blowing through a stop sign and almost colliding with a Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department Patrol Car, TMZ reports.

In addition to driving on a suspended license, Bella scored a .14 on the breathalyzer—nearly double the legal limit. However, because she is a minor, she legally cannot drive with ANY alcohol in her system.

After being arrested Bella was released into the care of her stepfather, legendary music producer David Foster.

NeNe Leakes dished out some juicy gossip this past week on Watch What Happens Live!

After the intense sixth season of The Real Housewives of Atlanta, Nene and co-star Cynthia Bailey could not keep their friendship alive past the reunion.

“There’s no friendship and there will not be. I am so done with her. I don’t even have words for her,” NeNe told Andy Cohen. “We had a real friendship. I really loved her.”

“I feel like if she had an issue with me, I don’t understand somebody waiting six months to have an issue with you: come over your house, eat your food, go to the hospital, go to Fashion Week with you, travel for New Year’s, and then, all of a sudden, sit on the couch and make up some s**t. She blindsided me sitting on the couch,” NeNe said about Cynthia’s remarks during the reunion show. “I can forgive her but I don’t want to have a friendship with her.”

Somebody else Nene can’t play nice with is the self-proclaimed Queen of Media Wendy Williams. Leakes’ claws came out after Williams made a remark about her custom made Hermes Birkin bag. Williams asked her followers what they thought about Nene defacing the $10,000 purse by having her trademark quotes printed on its surface. Seems innocent enough, right? Not to Nene who stated the following message to Williams on her blog:




One person Nene may not be locking horns with anytime soon is RHOA‘s Phaedra Parks. As Parks’ husband Apollo Nida prepares for a 10 year prison sentence for bank fraud, the Atlanta entertainment lawyer and author of Southern Belle is going to be taking a Housewife hiatus. Multiple sources are reporting that Parks will be leaving RHOA immediately, though she may want back in for season 8. A source close to Parks told that she is “holding her head high” these days. After a social media break Parks returned to both Twitter and Instagram this week to promote her book and  some upcoming events. Reports say that her season 7 hiatus will be so she can focus on her family. Phaedra and Apollo have two young sons together.

Some say that Reality TV has taken the place of soap operas, and this may be the proof!

After months of speculation, it seems like Days of Our Lives alum Lisa Rinna may have earned a spot on RHOBH! But that is not the only surprise, US Weekly says they have also confirmed that DOOL‘s Eileen Davidson (55) is also joining the cast!

According to Us Weekly, Lisa, 51, has begun filming scenes including her birthday party on July 11 at Lisa Vanderpump’s newest restaurant Pump in West Hollywood, California.

Lisa has been friends with Kyle Richards and Lisa Vanderpump for years,” a source told the mag.

Yes, it’s coming back and I’m coming back,” Kyle Richards told Us Weekly earlier this summer, “I feel good. I’m looking forward to a new season. I think it’s going to be a really good season and I’m excited. I’m curious, like the viewer, to see things unfold and see what the relationships are like.”

Kyle also revealed that her sister, Kim Richards, would be returning for the upcoming season.

Lastly if you have been missing the Manzo‘s it won’t be long! Last week Caroline Manzo took to social media to announce that the final day of filming her upcoming series Manzo’d With Children  had concluded. The former Real Housewives of New Jersey star told her fans that the show will air in the fall.

  1. I hope the casting of veteran daily suds stars are not a precursor to the RH franchise giving up any pretense at not being scripted. They are becoming The Hills with more plastic surgery!

  2. Agree, they could not be anymore fake…. it is too bad, they started out with promise…. now they are cringe worthy!
