#RHONJ Producers Made Teresa Spread Rino Cheating Rumor!

As if Teresa Giudice didn’t have enough drama in her life… the producers of Real Housewives of New Jersey recently attempted to drag her into the swirling mess of rumors and accusations surrounding Nicole Napolitano and her twin sister, Teresa Aprea. According to a source, show honchos pressured Giudice to spread the rumor that Aprea’s husband Rino cheated on her with her mother, Santa, to make both Giudice and the twins look bad — and now they’re “livid!”

On Sunday night’s episode, Giudice confessed to Dina Manzo that she had heard a rumor about Rino sleeping with Santa.

But now, Giudice is telling pals, that the entire scene was staged by producers to make her look bad — because she pulled out of going on the housewives’ cast trip to Miami.

“Teresa didn’t want or need in any drama in her life at that time,” the source explained. “It was around the time she had pled guilty in the bankruptcy and fraud case. Producers told her to tell Dina the rumor that Rino Aprea had slept with his mother-in-law.”

“It was done to make sure that Teresa looked like the villain for spreading malicious gossip, and she wasn’t in Miami to defend herself,” the source said.

But now, it’s not just Giudice who’s mad at producers for dragging her into drama.

The source claimed, “Twins Teresa and Nicole are beyond disgusted that a private family issue has become such a very public matter. They had no idea for the majority of the filming, the entire cast would be talking about their mother having sex with Rino! There was no reason that this ever should have been put on television. They are livid that their family looks like some backwards hillbilly mess.”

Despite public denials from the family, an insider previously told Radar, “It happened a long time ago, but Rino and Santa did have sex. And it happened more than once.”

Now, all of the ladies are “absolutely dreading the upcoming reunion,” the insider said. “Even though a date hasn’t been set for the taping, there are a lot of hurt feelings. The ladies could end up turning on Andy Cohen and the network because they are so upset.”

What do y’all think? Is this all bs? If you ask me the twins should be pissed at Rino and their mother!

But that’s none of my business…

Bravo’s Real Housewives Walk Runway For BETSEY JOHNSON

She is best known to reality show fans for her rather traumatic appearances during the first two seasons of The Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills which saw her marriage unravel.

But three years after her final appearance on the Bravo show, Camille Grammar looked almost unrecognisable as she stepped out on the Betsey Johnson runway in New York Fashion Week on Wednesday.

The 46-year-old sported a baby doll negligee with fluffy pom poms and bra detail teamed with a bridal veil, fluffy white handbag and matching silver shoes with fluffy detail.

The look was made even more dramatic with smudged eye make-up, bright red lipstick and a tousled blonde hairstyle.

Camille made her appearance more than six months after completing treatments for
endometrial cancer, and she seemed excited about her catwalk turn.

‘In NYC for fashion week,;’ she tweeted. ‘Getting ready to walk the runway for Betsey Johnson. So excited! At my age and after cancer. A bit nervous.’

Feeling fluffy: The former reality star showed off her slim figure in the tiny negligee

‘It’s going to be a great show, fun!! I love the theme,’ she added.

And at the end of the show, Camille paraded down the runway with a white vest top and glittering silver pom poms.

The ex-wife of Kelsey Grammer was joined by several other stars from the reality show franchise including Cynthia Bailey from The Real Housewives Of Atlanta who looked striking in a tiered metallic halterneck dress and tousled hairstyle.

‘Got my life walking in @xobetseyjohnson todayHad so much fun #onceamodel,’ Bailey wrote after the catwalk stint.

Real Housewives of New York star Kristen Taekman was given a more flouncy look, strutting down the runway in a strapless meringue style gown, complete with pastel coloured beaded necklace and tiara.

‘Got to walk in a wedding dress today for Betseys show so fun!! #stillgotit #RHONY,’ Kristen tweeted before her runway entrance.

The ladies were among drag queens and a transgender bride romping down the 72-year-old designer’s catwalk with RuPaul’s Drag Race contestants Sharon Needles and Willam Belli also involved.

Betsey, who is appearing in the forthcoming season of Dancing With The Stars, also introduced her professional partner Tony Dovolani at the end of the show along with her traditional cartwheel and splits.

‘He is unbelievably great,’ Johnson said. ‘Now I will really go in panic mode. I know the routine. I’m really good but I could forget in a second.

‘Seventy-two-years-old. Grandma. It could just slip my mind, but I can’t wait.’

Backstage, Johnson called the show a celebration of freedom in marriage. It’s ‘trendy and transgendy,’ she said.

Meringue: Kristen Taekman from Real Housewives Of New York sported a strapless bridal style flouncy gown with pastel layered necklace and tiara

‘Pre nup is a part of the whole world of straight brides, gay brides, transgender marriages, everybody getting married. Finally, freedom.’

Some of her brides were rockers, starlets, harlots and hip-hop lovers in multicolored ruffles and foil-like tiers of silver and teal.

And a few stripped off layers of wispy seafoam skirts and the bridal looks for others had them ready for the honeymoon in nighties.

She emblazoned tops in glittery PRE NUP, a message carried into chunky necklaces as well.

‘The clothes are my first shot at all kinds of brides,’ she said. ‘It’s been the most fun to work on this show. A lot of kind of new, more abstract ideas: see-through plastic dresses and dresses made out of scuba fabric and horse hair.’

Ruh Roh, APOLLO NIDA Did Not Report To Prison!

Apollo Nida did not report to prison! Now he’s a wanted man …

TMZ reported Wednesday AM … Nida was on his way to report for his 8-year prison sentence for money laundering and check fraud.

But apparently he got cold feet … because we’re told he pulled up to the home of his wife, “Real Housewives of Atlanta” star Phaedra Parks and went nuts because Phaedra refused to put money in his prison account while he was locked up. She also refused to bring their kids to prison to visit him and that caused him to lose it.

We’re told Nida forced his way inside and started screaming at Phaedra, “What the f*** is the matter with you,” adding, “I don’t give a f*** about the police, call them, I dare you.”

An eyewitness tells TMZ … he was demanding property and went inside the master bedroom and starting putting stuff in a big bag.

Fortunately for Bravo … we’re told RHOA cameras were rolling and got the whole thing.

Nida was supposed to report to authorities by noon but didn’t, and we’re told an arrest warrant is about to be issued.

Way to be there with the cameras, Bravo! I can’t wait to see this footage!

Peggy Tanous Claims BRAVO Wants Her Back On #RHOC

‘Member Peggy Tanous? The holistic friend of Alexis Bellino‘s who suffered post partum depression and was on one-season Real Housewives Of Orange County star? Well, she’s claiming producers have asked her to return!

Peggy previously stated that she left the show because it was too negative – and it destroyed her friendship with Alexis when it emerged that Peggy once dated (and according Alexis “stalked”) Jim Bellino. Peggy has since been trying to get another reality show off the ground – she’s also declared bankruptcy and dealt with foreclosure!

Well, now Peggy asserts that following the reunion, RHOC producers have asked her to return! “They called me to see if I had any interest again or if any of my friends did. I said no. I now have two shows I’m in production on.”

Peggy also reveals that RHOC is definitely casting for new ladies amid rumors that Tamra Barney will be fired. “They never know the cast until after the reunion and I know they are casting because several of my friends have been called. They are definitely casting for new women.” Just for the record, producers are ALWAYS on the look out for new ladies – just in case – even if they have no intention of firing anyone on the current cast they always keep options open.

Because of her insider information, Peggy takes issue with Terry Dubrow commenting that Tamra’s position on the cast is definitely safe – so she’s leaking a little information about how Heather Dubrow and Terry landed their roles on RHOC in the first place. “For Terry Dubrow to comment is comical to me,” Peggy tells RumorFix. “He needs to stop trying to be a Housewife and stick to being a doctor.”

Dr. Dubrow got producers’ numbers because I filmed with him Season 6 about possibly doing my boobs, but he was all about the cameras, so I chose another doctor that I felt was more interested in my well being than in the cameras,” Peggy adds. “Due to this, Bravo never aired our consultation. After that, he contacted production to see if they would buy a show of Heather and her friends opening a restaurant. They said no and told him to have her audition for Real Housewives.”

If you recall, Heather’s first season of Housewives she did feature a bogus story line of her and friends opening a restaurant – even though none of them had any experience..

Tell us what you think. Anyone want Peggy back on the OC? I say why not.

Ramona Singer To Star on Millionaire Matchmaker

It’s the ultimate revenge.

The Real Housewives of New York City’s Ramona Singer has agreed to take part in Bravo’s Millionaire Matchmaker after finally calling time on her cheating husband Mario, according to Radar Onlne on Friday.

The source revealed: ‘Ramona is doing it to make Mario jealous, and has instructed Patti to get young hot guys for her to choose from.’

Pals persuaded the 57-year-old to do the reality show, hosted and produced by Patti Stanger, to boost her confidence after the end of her 22-year-marriage to the 60-year-old following his alleged affair with Kasey Dexter.

‘At first, Ramona was absolutely not going to do it, but her friends talked her into it,’ the source said.

‘Fellow New York housewife, Sonja Morgan has already filmed for the upcoming season, and advised Ramona to do it because it was so much fun.

‘She said it would be a great confidence booster for Ramona to have a bunch of men vying for her attention at one of Patti’s infamous mixers. It’s a great way to get herself out there and just have fun. She isn’t looking for anything serious right now.’

Ramona announced her split on Twitter on August 7.

The beautiful blonde originally filed for divorce in January, but the pair reconciled a few months later – only to split again when Ramona caught Mario cheating on July 24. The couple have one daughter, Avery.

‘We were doing great, but when I got suspicious and questioned him, he admitted he was still seeing her (Kasey),’ the reality star spilled to Us Weekly on August 11. ‘I screamed, “We’re done!” ‘

Now she’s reportedly ‘very nervous, but excited’ about appearing on Patti’s show, which introduces wealthy people to one another.

The  insider told Radar that Ramona ‘hasn’t been on a blind date in over 25 years.

‘Viewers are going to see a different side of Ramona now that she has finally decided to ditch cheating husband Mario.’

Real Housewives of New York CAST Shake Up!

The cast change is reportedly due to Bravo wanting to build the reality show around cast members Heather Thompson, Kristen Taekman and Carole Radziwill.

The Real Housewives of New York City has reportedly cast off one of its housewives.

Aviva Drescher has been fired from the Bravo series. Her co-star Ramona Singer has been demoted to “a friend of…” similar to LuAnn De Lesseps, who only appeared on a handful of episodes last season.

“Bravo is casting the show around (cast members) Heather Thomson and Kristen Taekman and Carole Radziwill,” says a source about the reason behind the cast shake up.

It’s being reported that when Ramona carried the show,  is why ratings plummeted.

The insider also said that Singer’s six-figure paycheck contributed to why she was bumped to a recurring role. She is the longest-running original cast member, having starred on the show since its 2008 premiere.

Drescher, 45, had been on the show for the last two seasons, including a tumultuous one that saw her get into a feud with Radziwill and throwing her prosthetic leg across the room during the season six finale.

Singer, 57, suffered personal setbacks after the show concluded filming its sixth season. Her marriage to Mario, her husband of 22 years, imploded after his affair was made public earlier this year.

The reality star refused to discuss the topic during the “RHONY” reunion show in August, but a few weeks later she announced on twitter that she had separated with her husband.

Joan Rivers’ Funeral Requests… R.I.P. dear Joan

Joan Rivers’ funeral will get the red carpet treatment as New York medical examiner continues to investigate her death.

Flowers are placed on Joan Rivers' Hollywood Walk of Fame Star following news Thursday of the comedian's death in New York.

Guests at the comedian’s Sunday sendoff in Manhattan will walk a special crimson carpet before paying their final respects to the 81-year-old. Earlier in the day, the New York City medical examiner’s office said an autopsy was inconclusive and additional studies would be made into the death of Rivers, who was taken off life support Thursday.

Joan Rivers will get the red carpet treatment at her funeral.

Guests at her Sunday sendoff in Manhattan will walk a special crimson carpet before paying their final respects to the 81-year-old Rivers.

The beloved comedian will then be buried along with the carpet outside Temple Emanu-El on the East Side.

The wisecracking Rivers became infamous for her fashion critiques of celebrities walking the red carpet before Hollywood events like the Oscars and the Grammys.

Daughter Melissa Rivers spent about 90 minutes inside the Frank E. Campbell Funeral Home on Friday working on the arrangements for Sunday’s farewell.

She returned in a black Cadillac Escalade to her E. 62nd St. townhouse around 1 p.m., telling reporters outside, “I’m alright.”

The city medical examiner completed its autopsy of Rivers as the widening investigation into her death after a routine medical procedure continued.

The “cause and manner” of Rivers’ death will now be determined after additional studies, Julie Bolcer, spokeswoman for the ME’s office, said Friday. The initial finding was inconclusive.

State Health Department officials had already announced their own probe into the death of Rivers, who was taken off life support Thursday.

Rivers was rushed to The Mount Sinai Hospital on Aug. 28 after going into cardiac and respiratory arrest at the Yorkville Endoscopy Center on E. 93rd St.

A city police detective stopped by the clinic around 10:20 a.m. Friday, ignoring reporters as he left.

The autopsy was prompted only by the unusual circumstances surrounding Rivers’ death, according to a source.

Sources have told the Daily News that the comedian’s family was considering a lawsuit in Rivers’s sudden and shocking death.

The late comic’s only child, daughter Melissa, emerged Friday morning from her apartment building on E. 62nd St. She walked past a dozen bouquets left by fans, and left in a waiting black SUV.

“It’s humbling,” she told reporters when asked about the outpouring of love for her mother.

Melissa Rivers was the only child of Joan Rivers. With Melissa’s son, Cooper.

 

Rivers was placed in a medically induced coma hours after leaving the clinic, and wound up on life support by last weekend.

Her daughter, accompanied by other family members and friends, kept an eight-day bedside vigil until Rivers passed away. Funeral plans were in motion shortly after her death.

“The funeral arrangements are underway and were going on late into the night and into the morning,” the source said Friday.

No details were yet made public. But Rivers, in one of her books, expressed her hopes for a Hollywood extravaganza at her funeral.

“Lights, cameras, action … I want craft services, I want paparazzi and I want publicists making a scene,” Rivers wrote.

 

This is one of the saddest things ever. Joan’s death is the end of an era, for me. She was a phenomenon and will be greatly missed. :-(

Teresa and Joe Giudice Bankruptcy Settlement

Teresa and Joe Giudice finally received some good news. After years of struggling with an ongoing bankruptcy case, the “Real Housewives of New Jersey” stars have finally settled their $13.5 million case.

According to a new report, the reality stars and parents of four girls can now move forward with life, concentrating on their next legal issue — their fraud trial.

“The trustee in the bankruptcy filed the discharge papers on Aug. 27 in New Jersey — wiping $13,480,263.11 in debt from the reality TV stars’ lives,” Radar Online reported on Sept. 3, via court documents. “According to the documents, $15,000 worth of the couple’s furniture and household goods were sold off by the trustee, but the Giudices were allowed to keep their numerous homes because the trustee found them to be of no value.”

Teresa and Joe were also allowed to keep their cars, a 2007 Cadillac and a 2005 Maserati, as well as their motorcycle, a Kawasaki Quad.

“The case is fully have been properly accounted for as provided by law. The trustee hereby requests to be discharged from further duties as a trustee,” the trustee, John W. Sywilok stated, via Radar.

Teresa and Joe are due back in court on Sept. 23, where they will receive their sentencing for crimes of fraud. Despite facing years behind bars, Teresa is reportedly “confident” she will evade jail time. Still, she faces up to two years behind bars, while Joe is facing four.

So far, it is unclear how much of the trial, if any, will be seen on “The Real Housewives of New Jersey.”
