Happy Birthday to the ThatHousewifeGuy brand! THG turns three years old this month and we are celebrating with an exciting giveaway for all of our Reality Roundup readers! See the bottom of this week’s Roundup for details!
Is being on Reality Television really worth it? For one of The Real Housewives stars, it is!
NeNe Leakes can now add highest paid housewife to her growing resume. The Real Housewives of Atlanta star has signed a mega contract for the sixth season of the hit show. The housewife turned actress will be reeling in a whopping 1 million dollars plus bonuses for the new season!
NeNe’s Real Housewives co-stars may be a little envious of her significant promotion; however, Bravo takes good care of the Atlanta ladies. Former Atlanta housewife, Kim Zolciak received a raise and her own spinoff series, Don’t Be Tardy…, last year with the second season premiering next week. Kandi Burruss and Phaedra Parks received their own spin-offs as well, both of whom will be returning to RHOA next season.
Not only will Kandi and Phaedra be back, but all of the ladies will return—including Kenya Moore, Porsha Stewart and Cynthia Bailey.
The former Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star, Camille Grammer is expected to sit in the hot-seat on Watch What Happens: LIVE! Monday night. Camille is set to address the reasons why she won’t be returning for a fourth season of RHOBH and dish on the hardships of her divorce from Kelsey Grammer.
“I’m so excited to go on Andy’s show,” Camille told RadarOnline. “I absolutely adore Andy, and always have a great time on the show. I have no idea what Andy is going to ask me…The stress of the divorce has taken a toll on me, and I would happily address it on Andy’s show.”
Camille also praised her former cast member, Lisa Vanderpump for her recent stint on Dancing with the Stars. “I’m a former dancer, and I know how hard that can be on your body. I was so proud of Lisa and how well she did on Dancing With The Stars. She looked incredible, and kudos to her for sticking with it when she was so sick, good for her!”
Lisa was recently sent home from the competition after dancing away for six weeks. “It’s been six long weeks,” she said. “It’s the hardest thing I’ve ever done.” Lisa was the first housewife to appear on the show.

The Jersey Shore and The Real Housewives of New Jeresy collide! The Emporio Motor Group celebrated the grand opening of their new showroom on Route 17 in Ramsey with a celebrity studded event last Thursday.
Among the hundreds of guests were JWoww and her fiancé Roger Matthews, who are currently in the midst of planning their upcoming wedding.
The Real Housewives of New Jersey stars, Melissa and Joe Gorga and Jacqueline and Chris Laurita were also in attendance at the event to check out the dealerships luxury car line-up.
Speaking of Jacqueline, she and former RHONJ star Danielle Staub recently got into a sparring match on Twitter.
Danielle slammed the show earlier this week on Twitter, suggesting that Bravo fire the entire cast after learning about the recent brawl at the Posche 2 opening.
Now, Jacqueline is outing Danielle for sending messages to Jac’s Twitter followers—encouraging them to tweet mean things about her. Jacqueline posted screenshots of these messages, proving that Danielle has been a driving force behind some very nasty tweets.
The cast of The Real Housewives of New Jersey may be reluctant to reveal whether or not Danielle will be appear on Season 5 of this show, but we will see for ourselves soon enough! The fifth season returns June 2nd! Be sure to look for the TBB Reality team in the background! We have been at many of the filmed events this season!
Blind Item: Which two stars of The Real Housewives of New Jersey argued at an event this week which ended in one pushing the other?
MobWives fans may be sad to hear that Love Majewski will not be returning next season. In fact, she wasn’t even invited to the reunion taping.
The producers of the show gave the pink slip. She took to Twitter to share, “I appreciate everyone’s support but please don’t blame @VH1 they did NOT fire me,I enjoyed working with @vh1,I was let go by left/right [productions].”
“YES this was a difficult week&it sucks to watch this little weasel lie about me¬ b able2defend myself,” Love tweeted. “but this week was also a blessing! YES a blessing! 4the 1st time since I started MW I can see ppl for who they really are&I am blessed to have some amazing REAL friends !”
Love is keeping her head up, however. And according to her tweets, she has plans to work on a new project! “Thank You all for the tremendous support I can’t wait until we are hear [sic] discussing my new project. I want to work on something REAL”.
MobWives co-star Renee Graziano says that she could not prevent Love’s fate on the show, even though her sister Jen is the creator of the series, tweeting: “Look People I wld LOVE 2 b the 1 HIRING n FIRING but I’m NOT the BOSS so there’s NOTHING I can do 2 get LOVE back.”
Ladies, have you bought your swimwear yet for the upcoming summer? Well if not, The Real Housewives of Orange County star, Gretchen Rossi has got you covered, literally!
Gretchen took to her Facebook page this week to announce the launch of her Gretchen Christine swimwear line. “Super excited to announce the launch of my new Gretchen Christine swimwear line with @LuxebyLisaVogel,” Gretchen wrote.
“We have styles for everybody type!” she continued. “Pre-orders available at http://www.swimspot.com and will hit retail stores on June 1st.”
Gretchen has become quite the entrepreneur! Between handbags, cosmetics and swimwear, this gal is well on her way to building a brand. Congrats, Gretch!
Jeana Keough was one of the original housewives, staring on the first season of The Real Housewives of Orange County and several seasons thereafter. During her time on the show, viewers got to know her children, Kara, Colton and Shane, who was pursuing a baseball career.
According to his tweets, Shane Keough may be planning on releasing a book about his stint on the show. “My first book cover :),” Shane tweeted Friday, adding, “So excited to be a part of the team and looking forward to everyone getting a chance to read all the excitement.” He didn’t include a picture of the supposed book cover and he didn’t dish details about what the book could be about. Do you think the book is about RHOC?
I guess we will have to wait for the 100th-episode special of The Real Housewives of Orange County which will allegedly feature interviews and segments with cast members past and present!
