'The Real Housewives of Miami' premiere: Party in the city where the heat is on!

housewives-of-miamiImage Credit: Glenn Watson/BravoHere’s what I learned about Will Smith’s favorite city from The Real Housewives of Miami, the latest iteration of Bravo’s Real Housewives franchise: It is not New York. It is not L.A. It’s a great place to find women with big, floppy hats, ridiculously long, flat-ironed hair, and sexy accents. Its largest PR firm employs a staggering 12 people. And some people refer to it as The Magic City. (Okay, fine, I actually learned that last fact on Wikipedia.)

I still don’t know, however, if Miami has what it takes to host a decent edition of Housewives. READ FULL STORY

Camille Grammer on '$#*! My Dad Says' tells Kyle Richards to 'suck it'

Camille-Donatacci-GrammerImage Credit: Sonja Fleming/CBSOh stop, she was just reading her lines! The Donatacci made a brief appearance on last night’s season finale of $#*! My Dad Says, which means I watched my first episode of $#*! My Dad Says last night. So get this, and try to keep up: Camille the Real Housewife of Beverly Hills played Camille the Real Divorcee of San Diego, a reality TV star looking to buy a house now that her husband has left her. ($#*! stars Will Sasso and Nicole Sullivan played her realtors.) The diligence with which the writers hit every one of her “Oops, I was nervous, I was sad, Kelsey made me do it, I’m 30 percent busier than everyone else in the world, did I say that?” moments was something to behold.  READ FULL STORY

'Real Housewives of Beverly Hills': Between Kelsey Grammer and Botox jokes, what was the most tragic moment of the 'lost footage' special?

Camille-and-Kelsey-GrammerImage Credit: Jemal Countess/WireImage.comCamille, Lisa, Adrienne, Taylor: Who’s the most tragic Beverly Hills housewife of all? Moments from last night’s “Lost Footage” special proved that each of these four has a worthy claim to that title. (Kim and Kyle are off the hook… for now.) Let’s examine the video evidence, which includes a cameo from Camille’s ex-husband (and ex-Frasier) Kelsey Grammer: READ FULL STORY

Bravo announces 'Real Housewives of Miami' will bump 'New York City' premiere for now: Could it be a blessing in disguise?

MIAMI-SEASON-1Image Credit: Adam Olszweski/BravoBuried amid Bravo’s announcement about the launch of The Real Housewives of Miami debuting Feb. 22 is the sad — or maybe not so sad? — news that the fourth season of The Real Housewives of New York City, which had been scheduled for a Feb. 15 debut, won’t see the light of day until spring. Indeed, EW is hearing a late March premiere for the antics of the Countess, Jill Zarin, Ramona, & Co. The big question that comes out of this rather jarring change: Could The Real Housewives of Miami (above) really be a suitable replacement for The Real Housewives of New York City (below)?

LuAnn de Lesseps of 'Real Housewives' to guest on 'Law & Order: SVU.' We guess what happens to her character.

LuAnn-de-LessepsImage Credit: Joe Pugliese/BravoPopWatchers, I’ve got more housewives on my mind than Paul Finch. (Late ’90s shout-out!) Because not only can we expect an epic, two-hour Real Housewives of Beverly Hills reunion showdown tonight, but we can also start preparing ourselves for a semi-nude scene from LuAnn de Lesseps in an upcoming episode of Law & Order: SVU. (Where does “semi-nude on a procedural” fall on the Alex’s smutty art to Kelly’s artsy smut scale?) NBC confirms to EW that the Countess will play an art patron who poses for a painter in the opening scene of the Feb. 23 episode. And that, dahling, is the interesting part: Lesseps appears to be only in the opening scene. So, hearing that news, let’s guess what happens to her character, shall we? READ FULL STORY

Kelsey Grammer talks love on 'Regis & Kelly'; Camille Grammer to talk divorce on 'Housewives.' Who's on top?

In one corner: Kelsey Grammer, A(ish)-list Hollywood star, appearing on Regis & Kelly to talk about his cross-country honeymoon road trip with 29-year-old fiancée Kayte Walsh, and his love for his new lady. Except from the interview: “Somebody came and saw [La Cage aux Folles] several months into it and said to me, ‘You know what the show did for me today?’ She said, ‘It made me want more love in my life.’ And I suddenly realized that she expressed exactly how I felt. I’m not making any kind of suggestion about my past or anything else, I’m just saying what’s happened since I started in this La Cage thing is — this year’s journey has been about to sort of enhancing love in my life.” (By reluctantly kissing your future ex-wife on camera at the Tonys while your future fiancée hangs out in your apartment? I’ll say that’s enhancing!) See video of the interview here.

In the other corner: Camille Grammer, C-list reality star, appearing on a two-hour Real Housewives of Beverly Hills reunion to undoubtedly talk about her divorce from Kelsey — which was chronicled on the show — but mostly to squabble about like meaningless things “insecurities,” “bullying,” and “lives.”

Who wins the televised battle of the exes?

'Real Housewives of Orange County' promo: Boobs, brawling, and bawling

What a fun, sexy time the Real Housewives of Orange County will have season 6! Stripper poles! Gold-digging! Vaginal Rejuvenation! Bikinis! More bikinis! Even more bikinis! My god, how many bikinis must one housewife own?! But based on this promo for the season — which premieres March 6 — there’s also plenty of clouds hovering over the Real Housewives‘ sunny existences: Vicki’s marriage with Don begins to fall apart, Tamra and Jeana engage in a poolside fight (like there’s any other kind), and Tamra fights away the paparazzi while going to court for a restraining order. (The latter is an interesting scene, since we very rarely see the show reference the fact that these women are, well, sort of famous.) Also, two new ladies: Former model Peggy Tanous and gay Brazilian fitness instructor Fernanda Rocha. Feel the need to suck yourself into a dark hole of depression and diamonds? Well, click the jump!

'Real Housewives of Beverly Hills' reunion promo: Camille Grammer was 'set up' to look bad

Season after season of the Real Housewives franchise has taught us to tolerate the insipid spa scenes and insufferable cackling for one reason: The plumped-up reunion episodes. And based on the latest promo for the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills two-part reunion (airing on Jan. 27 and Feb. 1), this one will make waves at the water-cooler. Though the beginning of the promo is indistinguishable from a Mad Men teaser — with various cast members saying ambiguous things like, “Keep it straight,” “You started the fight,” and “You compared yourself to Jesus” (It’s the new “Shut the door!“) — the rest of the trailer is plenty juicy: Bullying accusations, alcoholism suspicions, and talk of just how much boob you can show before you are no longer considered a nun. Also: The much-reviled Camille Grammer uses the oldest excuse in the book for her behavior: “This whole season was set up to make me look bad.” Yawn.

Know this, Allison Dubois: You will enjoy the promo embedded after the jump! READ FULL STORY

Camille Grammer on becoming a Real Housewife: 'I didn't want to do the show ... Kelsey wanted me to do it.'

Surprise. Camille Grammer doesn’t think she’s been accurately depicted on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. On today’s Ellen, she tells the pedaling host that being on the show wasn’t even her idea in the first place. “Kelsey wanted me to do it, surprisingly enough,” says Camille, of her now-estranged and re-engaged husband. “I didn’t want to do the show. I wasn’t ready to expose my life that way. You know, we’ve been a private couple for a long time … for the most part, we really kept to ourselves. I was surprised he wanted me to do it, too? I was like, Are you crazy? Why are you making me do this?” (As for recent rumors of her departing the show, Grammer says nothing has been decided yet.)

Check out the clip below, in which Camille tells all: READ FULL STORY

'Real Housewives of New York': Cindy Barshop is the newest cast member. Who will she clash with?

Real-Housewives-New-York_320.jpg Image Credit: Bravo; Inset: Amy Sussman/FilmMagic.com The Real Housewives family has welcomed a new addition. Bravo has confirmed to EW that Completely Bare founder Cindy Barshop will be the newest cast member of the network’s hit The Real Housewives of New York. (The New York Post had the news first.) So what do we know about Barshop? At this point, the bare (heh) minimum: She runs the chain of day spas that focuses on waxing and laser hair removal, is a native of Long Island, and is a single mother of two twin girls named Zoe and Jesse who were born in 2009.

Of course, those three things tell us nothing about Barshop’s personality. And, really, there’s only one thing every fan of the Bravo series wants to know: Which Housewives cast member will she spar with? My guess is she’ll be friend to fellow businesswoman Alex and fellow Long Island native Jill, and the Post‘s piece already states that she’s pals with Ramona. The story also states, however, that she “has connections” to Kelly, which sounds ominous — or at least, as ominous as things can get for someone who lives in a world of cartwheels, lollipops, and rainbows. (And it would be perfect to see Barshop pick up where Bethenny left off — even if Bravo insists that the new cast member is not a replacement for Bethenny Frankel, who has long been rumored to be leaving the show.) And Barshop’s “cool and laudable” life decisions that “will invite watercooler conversations” — according to Bravo Programming Vice President Christian Barcellos — will surely transform LuAnn into the patronizingly supportive frenemy, darling, and Sonja into the passionately supportive friend.

So now I turn to you, PopWatchers. Who do you think Barshop will spar with on this upcoming season of Real Housewives? Vote below! READ FULL STORY
