Max Boyens is opening up about the emotions he went through after a series of racist tweets were uncovered in January of last year.

Nearly one year after being fired from Vanderpump Rules, along with Stassi Schroeder, Kristen Doute, and Brett Caprioni, all of whom were accused of racist behavior, Max is speaking out about his fears for his life, Lisa Vanderpump‘s reaction to his Bravo exit, and Lala Kent‘s claims about his “truly disgusting” posts.

“In January, when this all surfaced, Lisa suspended me for two weeks from TomTom and she did an investigation,” Max recalled on the Behind the Velvet Rope With David Yontef podcast. “I remember being absolutely mortified. It was like going through a breakup. I was just like, ‘My life is f-cking over. I’m going to lose everything.’”

According to Max, he actually believed his life was in danger after his tweets resurfaced.

“I thought I was going to get f-cking killed,” Max explained. “I thought if I was going to go to the grocery store, [people] were going to recognize me and just like beat my a–.”

Luckily, upon completion of her investigation, Lisa opted to bring Max back to the restaurant.

“She talked to everyone that worked for me. Richardson, who [is a] black man that’s been working at all of Lisa’s restaurants for I think 10 years, she pulled him aside and he defended me,” Max revealed. “That’s why Lisa let me back at TomTom.”

In addition to dealing with the professional consequences, Max was also faced with hard questions from his mother, who is mixed.

“She didn’t use the word disappointed in me, but she was thoroughly bummed,” he admitted. “It’s not a good feeling to see that because she grew up mixed. She dealt with racism.”

As for his firing from Pump Rules, that came months later.

“I just woke up to a phone call [from producers] at like 8:00 AM. And they’re just like, ‘Hey, I’m sorry, you can’t come back on the show.’ I kinda remember us ending the phone call pretty quickly because I knew. I was like, ‘I saw this coming. I get it,’” Max recalled.

Following the firing, Max received a phone call from Lisa.

“She was just saying she was sorry and checking in on me, especially cause the restaurant had been closed. It was a hard conversation,” Max noted.

Max also spoke to Tom Sandoval and Tom Schwartz.

“I called [the Toms] immediately and they were like, ‘Damn,’” Max continued.

While the other fired cast members released statements about their departures from the series, Max chose to stay silent for nearly a full year.

“I haven’t done any media since the reunion happened. I wasn’t ready. It really messed with my mental health. It was hard. But it was also eye-opening,” he stated.

Things got so hard for Max that he actually experienced suicidal thoughts.

“I thought about suicide and I thought about [the world] being better [with] me being gone. ‘People f-cking hate me. I can’t fix this,’” he remembers thinking.

Ultimately, after dealing with a weeks-long stint with depression, Max got out of his funk and began actively supporting the Black Lives Matter movement.

“I was very active with it,” Max shared. “I was out there and I wasn’t doing it because I felt like I had to prove anything. I [also] donated Cameo money to the BLM [movement].”

Although Max was certainly bummed when his role on Pump Rules came to an end, he also felt relief.

“The TV show was a lot too much for me in the first place. [It] gave me anxiety and it was really hard for me. I couldn’t even watch the show,” Max confessed, adding that he felt pegged as the show’s “villain” and “bad boy.”

Even after his exit, Max continued to receive hate from social media users, and his former co-star, Lala, who slammed his past tweets as “truly disgusting” and refused to be part of his “ignorance and hate” on her Instagram Stories.

“Lala for sure did that, which was unfortunate,” Max said in response.

Also during the podcast appearance, Max admitted that when it comes to cancel culture, he wishes certain people would have more of a chance to prove they can change and do better.

“It’s just the world we live in. People want to cancel the sh-t out of people. I’ve dealt with it and I don’t want to have a biased opinion but I think in a sense [cancel culture] has [gone too far] because I think people can change,” he explained.

Vanderpump Rules season nine is set to premiere on Bravo this fall.

RHOD’s LeeAnne Locken Leaks Text Messages From Brandi Redmond and Denies Sending Cheating Video of Bryan to Brandi’s Daughter as Brandi Admits Video of Husband Hurt Their Family

Published

LeeAnne Locken denies sending Brandi Redmond‘s daughter the viral video of Bryan Redmond as Brandi admits the scandal has been tough on their family.

The fifth season of The Real Housewives of Dallas is coming to an end, and though LeeAnne is no longer a cast member, her name was brought up at the end of the May 4 reunion episode. As fans likely noticed in the teaser for part two of the reunion, LeeAnne’s name was dropped as Brandi was addressing the video of her husband seemingly kissing another woman. Though Brandi said a “fan” had sent her daughter the video via Instagram, D’Andra Simmons alleged that LeeAnne may have had something to do with it and Stephanie Hollman agreed.

It’s unclear if LeeAnne has actually seen the teaser, but she felt the need to reach out to the mother-of-four to clear her name.

“I am getting a ton of messages about how I am being blamed for sending your child a video,” LeeAnne wrote to Brandi in the first message. “THAT IS COMPLETE B*LLSH*T!!! Why would I ever want to hurt a CHILD? After my childhood I prefer to protect children and I know you know that deep in your heart!!! Please, I’m gone. I’m happy. Just stop using my name for lies.”

Brandi immediately responded to her former co-star, letting her know she was not the one to mention her name.

“OMG. I never said it was [you]. I know who it was,” Brandi wrote back, adding, “I never even said your name.”

Following their initial exchange, LeeAnne shared the conversation to her Instagram Stories with the caption, “I’m done being blamed for sh*t I not only didn’t do but WOULDN’T do! Someone needs to stop blaming ME for everything! It’s old!”

However, as the two continued to chat about the matter, LeeAnne seemingly began to change her tune.

“Thank you. I guess it must be D & S,” she wrote. She was likely referring to D’Andra and Stephanie in the exchange, which was leaked to Bravo and Cocktails on Instagram.

“I said a fan sent her that video,” Brandi reiterated, before adding, “[People] are reaching.”

LeeAnne then let Brandi know that she has empathy for her heartbreaking situation, especially for the former cheerleader’s children.

“I would NEVER want your children to hurt! That makes me want to cry,” she said.

At that point, Brandi let her walls down a bit and admitted that Bryan made a huge mistake, which has hurt their entire family.

“Thank [you]. Bryan really messed up and it kills me that [our children] saw,” she wrote back.

She added, “It’s been a horrible year for us all.”

Luann de Lesseps Slams Carole Radziwill Over “Negative Comments,” Plus RHONY Star Dishes on Real Housewives All Stars and Shares Who She’d Like to Hookup With

Published

Luann de Lesseps reveals which Housewife she was expecting to stir up the most drama on the Real Housewives: All-Stars spinoff, shades former Real Housewives of New York City co-star Carole Radziwill, and discusses the possibility of posing for Playboy. Plus, she reveals who she wants Andy Cohen to set her up with and names three former co-stars she’d like to see return to the show.

Luann is a staple within the Housewives franchise, basically making her a shoo-in for the new Housewives mashup spinoff. As fans have likely heard, filming on the spinoff wrapped last week, but prior to the weeklong vacation, Luann admitted she was expecting drama.

“I’m sure excited to get to know the other women from the other franchises,” she said on the Behind the Velvet Rope with David Yontef podcast. “I know them, but I don’t know them… I haven’t been on vacation with them, so it’s going to be interesting to travel with them and get to know them better. And yeah, I’m excited about it and it’s going to be fun, and, you know, of course there’s going to be drama with all those personalities thrown in. But I kind of like that part [because] I love to see how people navigate [and] how they behave around other people.”

As for who the countess thought would stir up the most drama, she had three particular people in mind heading into the Turks and Caicos getaway.

“Maybe Teresa [Giudice], maybe Kenya [Moore]… Ramona [Singer],” she predicted. “I can’t wait, I can’t wait! I’m gonna sit back and drink my [nonalcoholic] sparkling rosé.”

Though Luann has been involved in her fair share of drama throughout her 13 seasons on RHONY, she doesn’t take her issues with her co-stars to social media like many other women in the franchise tend to do. The 55-year-old went on to explain why that is before throwing a bit of shade at a former co-star.

“I don’t get involved in that,” she declared. “I feel like social media can be great, but the downside of that is people attack each other from their computers and I think that’s just not my vibe. And you see Carole Radziwill makes negative comments about Bravo, and me, and I don’t even engage because she’s not worth my energy.”

Carole might not be worth her energy, but according to the mother-of-two, Playboy is certainly worth it as she admits she’d jump at the chance to pose in the historic magazine.

“I would do it 100 percent. If they would say, you know, ‘We’re gonna do a Housewives this year,’ I would totally sign up for that as long as it’s done tastefully and elegantly, of course,” she said. “Money can’t buy you class, but it can buy you Playboy.”

She added, “I’m gonna write that down. I’m gonna call my agent right now… Playboy.”

Also during the podcast, the cabaret star was asked if she has a celebrity crush, and she happily answered the question without any hesitation.

Bradley Cooper. Puttin’ it out there, Bradley, you know? Let’s call Andy Cohen, Bradley, and, you know,” she stated. “I would take such good care of him, I really would. I would make him eggs à la française [and] I would sing to him at night. Ahh, yeah.”

As for who Luann would like to see return to the show, she has a few women in mind. This includes Tinsley Mortimer, who quit in the middle of season 12 at the request of her ex-fiancé, Scott Kluth.

“I’d love to see Tinsley come back. Look, we all have to be on the journey that we’re on, and God knows that I’ve had my issues with men,” she explained. “It’s always about a man. If it’s not a pirate, it’s another marriage, so, you know, it’s about the rebound. It’s about picking yourself up when things happen to you that are not always positive.”

“Listen, I’d love to Tinsley come back,” she continued. “[And] I’d love to see Aviva [Drescher] come back. And I’m always happy to see Jill Zarin.”

The Real Housewives of New York City season 13 airs Tuesday nights on Bravo at 9/8c, and the Real Housewives: All-Stars is expected to premiere later this year.

Jax Taylor Claims Vanderpump Rules is “Scripted” and Says He “Couldn’t Do” it Anymore as Brittany Addresses Body-Shaming Comments and Talks “Long” Weight Loss Journey Ahead

Published

Jax Taylor says he was “irritable” during his last season on Vanderpump Rules because it was “too scripted” as his wife Brittany Cartwright weighs in and also discusses her postpartum body.

Jax claims he knew it was time to exit the show once things began to feel unnatural to him during season eight.

“I was 100 percent checked out at the end. … I was just very irritable on the show. It was getting a little bit too scripted for me and I just couldn’t do it anymore,” the 41-year-old told Us Weekly on May 7. “It wasn’t fun.”

The couple — who recently welcomed baby Cruz into the world — announced they were leaving the show in December by sharing separate yet similar statements via Instagram.

“The last 8 years on Vanderpump Rules have been some of the most challenging, rewarding and fulfilling years of my life. Although this is difficult to share, Brittany and I will not be returning for another season of Vanderpump Rules,” Jax wrote on December 4. “We are excited to take this time to focus on our growing family and share with you our new endeavors. [Bravo], [Evolution USA] and our Vanderpump castmates will always remain close to our hearts.”

The former model went on to say “there’s no way” they could have filmed the show while simultaneously caring for baby Cruz. Brittany seemingly agreed, explaining it would have been almost impossible for them to be “all in.”

“We put a lot of our heart and soul into that show and we’re very open and very real,” she asserted. “Having a kid changes your perspective on how much you want to put out there. People are mean and they mom-shame and everything else. I would be scared for that part.”

Speaking of “mean” comments, Brittany has been fighting off internet trolls for months as she often received harsh remarks about her pregnancy weight. Though she frequently clapped back at the haters, it really affected her, especially when she was compared to her former co-stars.

“When I was pregnant, I got so many mean comments about what my weight gain was,” she also shared with Us Weekly. “I was being heavily compared to Stassi [Schroeder] and Scheana [Shay] and Lala [Kent].… I’ve always been bigger than them, but my weight has always fluctuated and stuff. So it was just hard to see all those comments about my weight stuff when I was healthy and the baby was healthy.”

The Kentucky native added, “You’re already so emotional. And then, like, I was in quarantine, I was home, so I was looking at my phone more than I should have. … There were times when it made me ashamed of how I looked, and I shouldn’t have felt like that.”

Though Brittany said she’s learning to appreciate her own postpartum body, she’s amazed by how quickly some of her friends have been able to snap back after giving birth.

“I have friends like Lala, who literally looks like she doesn’t have a baby two days later. I mean, she is a freaking queen,” she gushed. “I don’t even know how, but my body is completely different. It’s going to be a long journey for me to get back to my weight.”

James Kennedy Shares Plans to Propose to Raquel Leviss, Reveals Which Costar He Saw Weekly Amid Quarantine as Comedian Jim Jeffries Recalls Tense Encounter With Pump Rules Alum Jax Taylor

James Kennedy and Raquel Leviss are on the verge of an engagement.

During an appearance on Thursday night’s episode of Overserved With Lisa Vanderpump, the Vanderpump Rules cast member applauded Raquel for sticking by him before fellow guest Jim Jefferies looked back on a tense encounter he had with Jax Taylor at a comedy club years ago.

“Can you keep a secret? I love Raquel so much and she really has helped me, and you’ve seen everything she stuck by me with. I really couldn’t imagine myself with anyone on this planet. There’s no buts. I think I’m gonna ask her to marry me,” James revealed on the E! reality show, according to a report from the Daily Mail.

“You are?” Lisa Vanderpump asked with an applause. “That would be the best decision you ever made.”

According to James, who will celebrate two years of sobriety in early July, he already has a few ideas about how he’ll propose.

“You get so many things wrong, and you’ve had so many situations you’ve screwed up, this could be your big moment,” Lisa noted.

At that point, James staged a fake proposal with a napkin ring, asking Lisa, “I can’t imagine my life with anybody else. I love you so much, and will you marry me?”

“Yesss! Good boy!” she replied.

Although James went on to admit that he hadn’t been in close contact with most of his Pump Rules castmates amid quarantine, he actually visited Scheana Shay every weekend due to her close relationship with his soon-to-be-fiancé, Raquel.

During another point of the episode, Jim admitted to mooning Jax at the Improv comedy club years ago during filming on a past season of the Bravo show. As he recalled, producers told him he wouldn’t be in their shot. However, because he wanted to make sure that was truly the case, Jim pulled his pants down in front of the cameras and heard, “Cut! Cut! Cut.”

Right away, he shared, Jax got “all silverback gorilla” and attempted, unsuccessfully, to call security on him.

“You don’t get Jim Jefferies thrown out of the Improv, I get me thrown out of the Improv,” Jim said.

Overserved with Lisa Vanderpump airs Thursdays at 10/9c on E!

Are Lisa Rinna and Harry Hamlin Fed Up With Scott Disick’s Relationship With Daughter Amelia? Source Explains Why RHOBH Couple Are Reportedly ‘Afraid’

Published

ShareTweetWhatsappPinterestRedditTumblrMailFlipboard

Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Lisa Rinna and her husband Harry Hamlin are reportedly over their daughter Amelia Hamlin‘s love affair with Scott Disick as sources say the Keeping Up with the Kardashians star is encouraging Amelia to change her appearance.

Lisa and Harry allegedly “drew a line in the sand” after Amelia, 19, was recently spotted out and about with bruised lips, which is typically a result of a lip filler procedure. However, according to a source, Amelia is wanting more than just lip injections.

“They’re concerned that Scott’s convincing her to mess with her appearance, especially since she’s talking about boob and butt surgery to keep his eyes off other girls,” the source told OK! on May 5.

Amelia and Scott, 37, began dating in October of last year, and the couple made their relationship Instagram official in February when the father-of-three posted several photos of Amelia cuddling up to him while they enjoyed a romantic dinner. Since then, they have traveled to multiple different cities together — with Scott’s kids in tow at times — so things are heating up rather than slowing down much to the dismay of Lisa and Harry.

“Harry and Lisa have been sitting back and hoping that Amelia would come to her senses. But it’s clear she’s in way too deep now, and that they need to make their feelings known,” the insider revealed. “The worry is that Amelia will be pregnant before she knows it, so Harry and Lisa are ready to take the bull by the horns before Scott ruins their daughter’s life!”

“Amelia’s young and in love, but her parents are hoping they can get through to her,” the source added. “They don’t want her world to revolve around Scott.”

Though Lisa hasn’t said too much about her model daughter’s relationship, she did break her silence in early April when she took to her Instagram Stories to reveal she has something in common with Scott.

“Welp we both seem to share a love of bucket hats,” she shared along with a photo of Amelia and Scott walking hand-in-hand on a Miami beach as he sported a black bucket hat.

Furthermore, in the RHOBH season 11 trailer, Lisa briefly addresses Amelia and Scott’s romance while speaking to co-star Kyle Richards.

“He’s too damn old!” Kyle says in the teaser. “And he’s got three kids.”

“I know!” Lisa quickly replies.

Hopefully, viewers will see Lisa express her true feelings about the relationship on season 11 of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, which premieres on Wednesday, May 19, at 8/7c on Bravo.

Jill Zarin is admitting that she was one of the Real Housewives who complained to Andy Cohen about their daughter being left out of the Watch What Happens Live kids special.

During the May 6 episode of WWHL, the former Real Housewives of New York City cast member said it was “of course” her before sharing her “one regret” from her time on RHONY and revealing if she believes she’ll ever reconcile with her former bestie, Bethenny Frankel.

“Fans have been non-stop texting me and you know I would never ask you but Alison wanted to know why she wasn’t included in Sunday night’s special of kids,” Jill began during an “Ask Andy Anything” segment on the WWHL: After Show.

“But, I will say, it was me. It was me,” she continued. “Everybody’s asking, ‘Was it you?’ It was me. How could anyone think it wasn’t me? Of course I did.”

According to Andy, he would have loved to have Ally Shapiro on the episode but simply didn’t have enough room for her to appear.

“We had 13 kids. We just didn’t have room. We didn’t have [Noel de Lesseps]. We didn’t have [Luann de Lesseps]’s kids. There were a lot of people who were left out,” he noted.

During portions of the live broadcast of WWHL, Jill looked back on the four seasons she spent on RHONY and revealed what she regrets the most.

“If I could go back on the show, the one thing I would change is not leaving [Ramona Singer]’s apartment without resolving my fight with Bethenny,” Jill admitted. “I wanted to do it off-camera and she wanted to do it on camera and I just couldn’t see straight. That was the one regret that I had on the show.”

As for their future, Jill said she has no hope left for a potential reconciliation.

“No, I don’t. No,” she stated.

Also during the show, Jill said she is not open to returning to RHONY in a full-time position.

“I just want to be a friend,” she explained.

Bravo Cancels Don’t Be Tardy After 8 Seasons, Find Out Why as Kim Zolciak Addresses Possible Return to RHOA, All-Stars Series, and New Spinoff With Nene Leakes?

Kim Zolciak‘s family’s reality show, Don’t Be Tardy, has just been canceled after eight seasons on Bravo.

Just hours after Kim reacted to the idea of returning to the show where she first found fame, The Real Housewives of Atlanta, and weighed in on a potential role on a future season of Real Housewives: All-Stars, sources explained why the network was not interested in renewing Don’t Be Tardy.

On May 7, production sources told TMZ that the series will not be brought back for a ninth season, noting that Bravo decided not to move forward with new episodes because they felt the show had run its course.

Don’t Be Tardy premiered in 2012 as a wedding special featuring Kim and her husband, Kroy Biermann. It continued for eight seasons with their kids, including Kim’s oldest daughters, Brielle Biermann and Ariana Biermann, and their four younger children, Kroy Jagger, Kash Kade, Kaia Rose, and Kane Ren.

One day before the news of Don’t Be Tardy‘s cancellation, Kim spoke to Hollywood Life on an episode of TVTalk on Instagram and admitted that she would consider going back to RHOA if she knew it would be like it was during season one.

“I miss season one where we didn’t know what it was going to be… If I could go back to season one? All day long. We had a blast. But other than that, no,” she said, noting that she also isn’t currently interested in appearing in a part-time or cameo role.

“I love [Porsha Williams]. Porsha all day long. But the rest? It’s like a snooze fest to me, no,” she explained.

While Kim isn’t open to a return to RHOA at the moment, she would like to film a future season of All-Stars if the Peacock series is renewed.

“They actually stayed at the same house that Kroy and I renewed our vows at in Turks and Caicos in 2017. I would not be opposed to that,” Kim admitted

As for her potential spinoff with Nene Leakes, Kim was actually supposed to star alongside her former castmate in a travel-themed series called Road to Riches. However, after opting to appear on Dancing With the Stars instead, the show was canceled in 2015.

Now, six years later, Kim is never saying never when it comes to potentially relaunching the idea for a spinoff with Nene.

“We talk and there’s no animosity whatsoever. NeNe is hilarious. She’s a very sensitive person, but she’s very funny. Never say never,” Kim noted.

Then, in a somewhat cryptic statement, Kim told Hollywood Life that she already had the best job with Don’t Be Tardy.

“I really enjoy being paid to film with my family. Is there a better job in the world? I don’t think so,” she said.

Garcelle Beauvais Shares Update on Friendship With Denise Richards After RHOBH Exit as the Ladies Seemingly Gossip About New Season During Lunch Date

It seems all is well with Garcelle Beauvais and Denise Richards following Denise’s exit from The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.

Garcelle and Denise are letting fans know they’re still close as they took to Instagram on Monday to share a cute video of their lunch date.

“Hey guys, so I know it’s Monday, but I took a little time to come out and hang out with a girlfriend, and we just wanted to say hi,” Garcelle says at the beginning of the Instagram video.

That’s when Denise — who was initially staying out of the camera’s view — popped up and said, “Hello. Fun to catch up. I’ve heard a lot [but] my lips are sealed.”

Garcelle joked, “They better be.” Denise responded, “They are.”

A post shared by Denise Richards (@deniserichards)

The ladies really seemed to be enjoying one another’s company as they haven’t seen as much of each other since Denise quit the show following a tumultuous season 10.

As fans well know, Denise decided to walk about from reality TV after Brandi Glanville claimed she and the Wild Things actress had “hooked up.” Though Denise maintained that she did not sleep with the Drinking and Dating author, it became the central storyline of the season. Initially, Garcelle said she would not return for a second season unless Denise would be joining her, but The Real co-host obviously had a change of heart.

Just last week, Garcelle dished on her friendship with Denise when she spoke with Us Weekly while promoting one of her latest projects.

“[Denise] is good. She’s working a lot,” she said on April 29, adding, “I said to her that she looks younger and happier since she left the show.”

Garcelle then went on to say that Denise actually “misses” some of the Beverly Hills ladies, but the last season was just too “tough” on her friend.

“With Denise and I being actors, we’re used to playing a character,” she explained. “When you’re doing reality, you have to be exactly who you are and that can be tough sometimes. There’s vulnerable times that you don’t want to share, but you have to because you signed up for it.”

Though the Coming 2 America actress wishes her friend was still on the show, it seems they truly do still keep in touch, and they’ll always have their lunch dates.

Kary Brittingham Reveals Event That Triggered Her Divorce From Eduardo and Reflects on Their Loveless and “Empty” Marriage as RHOD Star Admits She’s “Very Scared” About Her Future

Kary Brittingham is opening up about her decision to call it quits with husband Eduardo Brittingham after 12 years of marriage.

After admitting at the Real Housewives of Dallas reunion that she acted out during season five because she was “trying to mask” what she was going through, Kary revealed when she and Eduardo decided to get divorced and what led up to the heartbreaking decision.

“As I watched that I realized how much in pain I was. My marriage was falling apart and I didn’t want to admit it,” Kary told PEOPLE of her behavior on May 5. “After the show finished, me and Eduardo had a real heart-to-heart talk and we decided we needed to go our separate ways. We just told our kids right before coming to the reunion.”

Although Kary didn’t tell her children, including Isabella, who she shares with Eduardo, about her split until the reunion, which was filmed in New York City early last month, the two of them actually made the decision to end their marriage in January after a neighbor offered to purchase their home.

“I had a talk with Eduardo the next day after we got the offer. I said, ‘Listen, we need to talk about everything. Because if we sell the house this is a time to sell it and not move to the same place,’” she recalled. “I knew that I hadn’t been happy.”

Looking back at the past “couple years” she has spent with Eduardo, who was barely seen on RHOD season five, Kary admitted the two of them had “not been in the best place.”

“The past year, it was more of a roommate situation than a marriage,” Kary explained. “And I’m very Latin, I’m very passionate. I need love. I need to feel loved and hugs. And I was not getting that anymore. And I just started feeling really empty.”

“At the end of the day, I just had to be honest with myself and I was just not happy. He was not happy and we just needed to face that,” she continued.

As for the future, Kary said that while she is “very scared” about starting fresh at 50, she’s determined to make it work and show her kids that she can “figure it out and make it” and “keep thriving.”

“I’m definitely very scared,” she said. “It’s a very scary time. I didn’t want to fail at anything. And I’m scared. I mean, I am so lucky that I have my jewelry. And I had so much support from that.”

The conclusion of the Real Housewives of Dallas season five reunion airs Tuesday, May 11, at 10/9c on Bravo.

RHONJ: Joe Gorga Slams Richie Wakile for Raising Kids to Talk Trash After “Farm Animals” Diss, Accuses Joe Giudice of Ruining Their Family, And Reveals How Nieces Reacted to Feud With Joe

Joe Gorga appeared on Thursday night’s episode of Watch What Happens Live along with his fellow husbands of The Real Housewives of New Jersey, and during the show, he revealed how his nieces, including Gia Giudice, reacted to his heated encounter with their mom, Teresa Giudice over his negative comments about their father.

After Gorga and his wife, Melissa Gorga, slammed Teresa for always having the back of her ex-husband, Joe Giudice, Gorga admitted to being “hurt” by the girls’ reaction before targeting Giudice for his poor treatment of Teresa and Richie Wakile for the way he has raised his kids.

“I’ll be honest, they didn’t like it,” Gorga admitted of his nieces on the WWHL: After Show. “They’re supporting their father, which I agree. Support your dad. I’m a little hurt by that because I love them so much and I give them a lot of attention and they’re just listening to them. I’m just going to give it to them. And I’m going to take the seat back.”

While Gorga was upset about how the girls reacted to his negative comments about Joe, he stands by what he said.

“The thing with Teresa defending him is when I talk to Teresa and she tells me all the nasty things he says about her, as a brother she confides in me, I get very upset so I get mad and she kind of defends him because he treats her bad off-camera in life and he put her in prison and he ruined our entire family so I’m just not happy,” he explained.

As for the things Giudice has said about Gorga in the press, including his claims of ignorance and lies, Gorga said he’s not listening.

“With his comments, he’s in la-la land so nothing bothers me. It just shows the type of man he is. Let him say whatever he wants,” he stated.

During the live broadcast of WWHL, Gorga was asked about the “farm animals” comment Joseph Wakile made against him and Melissa earlier this year on Instagram.

“That, I’m really shocked because I’ve always loved him. I loved those kids,” Gorga shared, adding that he believes Joseph’s father is responsible for his antics.

“Richie Wakile… that is the reason why his children are talking the way they are. He’s just not a nice guy,” Gorga noted.

Gorga also spoke about his cousin, Rosie Pierri, saying that he misses Rosie and recalling she was “always there” for him when he was younger.

The Real Housewives of New Jersey season 11 airs Wednesdays at 9/8c on Bravo.

Lala Kent Reveals Foul Thing She Did to Randall Emmett’s Toothbrush Amid Drunken Fight Plus Vanderpump Rules Star Shares Update With Scheana Shay After Messy Feud

Lala Kent came clean about a despicable thing she did to fiancé Randall Emmett in her new book, Give Them Lala.

Recounting a drunken fight the two of them had in Miami years ago when she was still drinking, the Vanderpump Rules cast member revealed where she stuck the movie producer’s toothbrush before offering an update on her current relationship with her co-star Scheana Shay, who she feuded with heavily in 2020.

On May 4, Page Six shared an excerpt from the reality star’s new book, which revealed Lala had thrown Randall’s clothes, shoes, and toiletries into a pool “before taking his toothbrush and putting it in my a–hole for a minute.”

As she recalled, Lala was in an “alcoholic fog” at the time of the incident and was constantly prompting fights with her partner.

Continuing on, Lala remembered laughing at Randall when he began brushing his teeth after the disturbing incident before explaining why she was so amused.

“That toothbrush was just in my a–hole,” she remembers telling him.

As for which side of the brush Lala inserted into herself, she told Page Six in an interview after the book was written that she went for the side with the bristles.

“If I’m putting your toothbrush in my ass, I’m not half-assing it, no pun intended. We’re going with the side that you’re putting in your mouth,” she confirmed. “I’m such a d-ck when I drink. Thank God I stopped.”

During a separate interview, the Pump Rules cast member, who welcomed daughter Ocean with Randall in March, offered an update on her relationship with Scheana, who welcomed her first child, daughter Summer, with boyfriend Brock Davies last week.

“We have [been talking], and it’s very, like, mommy-oriented,” Lala told Us Weekly. “I check in on her, she checks in on me.”

Although the two women have had their “issues” in recent years, especially after Scheana accused Lala of failing to support her after her June 2020 miscarriage, Lala suggested she’ll always have a special place in her heart for Scheana.

“I just can’t help but look at her and be like, ‘I love you. So, can we stop the nonsense? Why do we keep attacking each other?’” she said.

As Pump Rules fans may recall, Lala and Scheana’s friendship was “nonexistent” just months ago.

“I haven’t spoken to her,” Lala told Andy Cohen at the time. “I know she’s also having a baby, so I wish her all the best.”

In September, after Scheana called her out for ditching her after her miscarriage so she could enjoy a dinner date with Meghan Fox and Machine Gun Kelly, Lala fired back on Instagram.

“Anybody wondering my thoughts on [Scheana] ‘dragging’ me. I’m not tripping too hard. … She would rather focus on me ‘not being there for her’ than the fact that her man, [Brock Davies], said he was working, turned his phone off and went golfing that day. Weird how that was just glazed over.”

One month later, Scheana was featured on the #NoFilter With Zack Peter podcast, where she claimed she would never be friends with Lala again.

“Honestly, for the last three years, I felt myself forcing a friendship with her because every time she hurts me, she feels bad, she begs for my forgiveness — but it’s usually when there’s a camera in her face — and I forgive her! And then she does it again. And I forgive her. And then she does it again. And I’m, like, I haven’t wanted this friendship to continue for years. I just, I keep forgiving you. And at this point, I’m done. I’m checked out. I don’t have room for that type of fakeness in my life anymore.”

Months later, upon the arrival of baby Ocean, Scheana offered a congratulatory message to her co-star on Instagram.

“Ahhhhhh so happy for you guys!!” she wrote at the time.

Give Them Lala is available now.

Dorinda Medley Fires Back at Ramona Singer After Former RHONY Co-Star Claimed Dorinda Moved Out of NYC Because She Couldn’t Live Rent-Free Anymore

Ramona Singer shades Dorinda Medley‘s living situation, but Dorinda is setting the record straight.

Dorinda was fired following season 12 of The Real Housewives of New York City, but Ramona seemingly still has plenty to say about her former co-star. During a recent interview, the 64-year-old was asked if the current season went “more smoothly” without Dorinda around and she immediately said that it did. Then, one of the co-hosts chimed in and said that Dorinda is her neighbor, and Ramona used the opportunity to diss the Make It Nice author.

“She’s your neighbor? You live in [The] Berkshires,” she asked before the Access Hollywood interviewer clarified she lives where Dorinda “used to live.” And Ramona quickly snarked, “Well no, she doesn’t live there [because] they stopped comping her the rent.”

It was first reported by Page Six in August 2020 that Dorinda would likely lose more than just her Bravo paycheck due to her firing as she had a nice deal set up that allowed her to live rent-free in a $10,000-a-month apartment as long as she promoted it on the show. Then, once she was no longer on the show, it was rumored that she had to pack up and leave the three-bedroom apartment and permanently move to Blue Stone Manor in The Berkshires.

However, Dorinda’s rep is making it clear that she can still call the Upper East Side her home because she owns a condo on East 87th Street in Manhattan.

“Dorinda has owned her apartment since 2001,” Steve Honig told Page Six. “She moved out while having it fully renovated. She continues to live in her apartment on the Upper East Side and spend her weekends at Blue Stone Manor [in the Berkshires].”

Dorinda’s living situation is not the only thing Ramona threw shade at. She also claimed that the show might be even more entertaining without Dorinda.

“There’s one thing about our show on RHONY, it’s like a bicycle. It’s a wheel. It keeps moving, we’re all cogs,” she explained. “We have a job to do and Bravo knows what they’re doing. We had a great season. I think this season is as good as any, if not better.”

The Real Housewives of New York City season 13 airs Tuesday nights on Bravo at 9/8.

Real Housewives All-Stars Was Filmed at Real Estate Listing of Kyle Richards’ Husband Mauricio Umansky, See Photos as Fans Express Frustration in Show Being “One Big Commercial”

The Real Housewives All-Stars won’t air on Peacock until later this year, but already, the debut season of the new series is drumming up controversy on social media.

After it was revealed that the cast took part in a weeklong getaway in Turks and Caicos, where they enjoyed accommodations provided by The Agency, the real estate firm of Kyle Richards‘ husband, Mauricio Umansky, fans began criticizing Kyle for her “self-promotion” and slammed the show as “one big advertisement.”

As Kyle began filming the new show with her castmates, including The Real Housewives of New York City stars Ramona Singer and Luann de Lesseps, The Real Housewives of New Jersey cast members Teresa Giudice and Melissa Gorga, and The Real Housewives of Atlanta‘s Cynthia Bailey and Kenya Moore, at the end of last month, fans noticed that Mauricio was also on the island and posting trips from his vacation.

In one particular post, Mauricio mentioned the Turks and Caicos location of his real estate firm and promoted the Wymara Resort.

“We love it here on the island. Best water, amazing accommodations what a great villa we have for sale and surprised by the great culinary experiences on the island,” he wrote.

The Agency also promoted the listing of the luxury oceanfront villa on their own page.

Following the sharing of the news regarding the cast’s vacation rental, one fan spoke out on Twitter.

“I can’t believe the Housewives went to Turks and Caicos to promote a villa that The Agency has listed. No wonder Kyle was there. Always promoting the business but can’t talk about the lawsuits,” the person said.

After Bravo Snark Side on Instagram shared a screenshot of the tweet, a number of their followers weighed in. Many expressed disappointment with the apparent commercial theme of the upcoming series.

“So over Kyle and her self promotion,” one person said.

“And they were promoting the heck out of [Melissa Gorga]’s Envy pajamas also, yeah, it’s 1 week of shooting can we lay off all the promoting??” another wondered.

“Housewives is like watching a hour long commercial,” someone else said.

A fourth fan added, “So the whole show is one big advertisement.”

So is the agency an official sponsor of #RHAllStars ?

Kyle knows how to hustle. #RHOBH https://t.co/ichpjJ4fib

Tom Sandoval and Ariana Madix Dish on Filming Vanderpump Rules Season 9 as Lala Kent Says Show Will Be “Different”

Published

Vanderpump Rules reportedly began filming season nine this week, and stars of the show are dishing on what they’re expecting to happen in the new season.

Pump Rules has been on hiatus for well over a year amid the COVID-19 pandemic as all of matriarch Lisa Vanderpump‘s restaurants were forced to shut down. However, now that most of the popular hotspots are back up and running, Bravo is ready to catch all of the lingering drama on camera. Tom Sandoval, Ariana Madix, and Lala Kent recently discussed how they’re feeling as they get back to work.

“I have pent-up, like, energy … I want to go party,” Ariana said when she spoke with Us Weekly on May 4. “I’m just ready to party. I don’t have any pent-up drama.”

Tom says he doesn’t really have any “pent-up drama” either — at least not with any of the returning cast members — but he’s itching to get back into the swing of things.

“Even just the vibe out here. Being out a little bit in, like, West Hollywood … everybody is, like, definitely ready to go,” he shared. “So, when it happens, when we’re allowed to go full force … I’m really excited that L.A. has been doing very well.”

Ariana went on to say that she’s interested to see how the vibe will change now that co-stars Lala and Scheana Shay have babies to care for.

“I do think it’s going to be really interesting just to see how things roll … with Lala and Scheana being new moms,” she said. “I think it’s just going to be a very interesting thing to watch. Obviously, I’m in it, so it’s a little bit different, but I predict that the viewers will be pleased.”

As for Lala, she’s really hoping to give fans exactly want they want as she claimed she’s ready to “duke things out.”

“It’s been two years of, like, pent-up animosity … little things that everyone’s done where it’s like, ‘Bitch, I have an issue with you and I need to talk to you about it.’”

Of course, she’s likely referring to Scheana considering the two had a falling out late last year, which Lala has claimed happened because she didn’t invite the “Good As Gold” singer to her gender reveal party.

“What triggered it was I didn’t invite her to my gender reveal,” Lala revealed while appearing on the April 22 episode of Lisa’s E! series Overserved. “And when she started turning my gender reveal into a platform for her low-level podcast. Just, like, don’t make my gender reveal about you.”

Nevertheless, since then, the ladies are reportedly back on speaking terms. But viewers will have to wait and see how long that lasts, especially since Lala says “no one is safe” with her around.

“I’m also excited because I’m crazy like this and built for reality TV,” she joked. “No one’s safe! No one’s safe with me.”

Though the Hard Kill actress is a reality TV pro at this point, she still doesn’t know exactly what to expect due to all of the changes that have occurred in the last year.

“So many people have asked what can we expect this season and this is the first year that I can say I have no idea,” she told Page Six.

She added, “A lot of time has passed, [there’s] cast members who were key players that are no longer on the show and there has been a lot of things that have said and happened in the two-year period and now we’re getting together where we have to talk about these things.”

Regardless of the type of drama that goes down — which could potentially include fighting over whose baby has the cuter outfit — Lala believes it will still be “entertaining” even if it is “different.”

“I don’t know what to expect, there are mommies now, babies in the mix,” she said. “I will say that it’s going to be a different show but I think it’s going to be extremely entertaining.”

Vanderpump Rules season nine will begin airing on Bravo sometime this fall.
