Jason Hoppy to Bethenny Frankel: No Bryn on Real Housewives of NYC!

Bethenny Frankel’s return to The Real Housewives of New York City is a done deal, but ex-husband Jason Hoppy will do anything to keep their daughter off it.

Hoppy is expected to formally ask the judge handling their bitter divorce to prevent 4-year-old daughter Bryn Hoppy from ever appearing on the Bravo show.

  • Hoppy
  • Hi, Bethenny Frankel!

Frankel’s return to RHONYC was confirmed this week, and “Jason isn’t thrilled because he knows Bethenny is going to get in numerous jabs” about their split.

While anything you see when you watch The Real Housewives of New York City online is out of his control, Hoppy hopes to control one critical aspect.

“It’s just unhealthy for Bryn to be on TV at a time when her parents are getting divorced,” explains the source. “Bethenny signed up for the show, [Bryn] didn’t.”

Bethenny may point to Hoppy’s double standard, says a source: “Jason had no problem with Bryn being on Bethenny’s [shows] when they were happily married.”

“Bethenny wouldn’t have Bryn be with her during every single shoot for Real Housewives, but she is adamant that the judge allow her to be on the show.”

Frankel, who starred on the show from 2008-10, after which she built a Skinnygirl cocktail empire, spent the summer carefully considering a return to Bravo.

“I’m genuinely excited, with a side of slightly nervous, for my return to the Real Housewives of New York City,” the 43-year-old said in a statement.

“Bravo has always been the [place on TV] where I have the freedom to be unfiltered, honest and inappropriate, with an audience who has been with me from the beginning.”

“I can’t wait to see what this next chapter brings for all of us.”

Sounds like it will bring big drama on and off the screen.

Dina Manzo Quits The Real Housewives of New Jersey: I Can’t Be Surrounded By Horrible People!

Ever since news broke that Jacqueline Laurita will return to The Real Housewives of New Jersey, reaction from fans and current cast members has been decidedly mixed.

With Teresa Giudice headed to prison for 15 months, producers were left with few options with regard to women who are available and might be able to bring a tenth of the drama that Queen T brought to the table.

Laurita seemed a safe – if not perfect – choice, but now it seems that adding her to the cast may have left execs with another vacancy to fill.

Jacqueline Laurita and Dina Manzo

Sources say Dina Manzo was furious to learn Laurita will be returning to the show, and now it looks like her anger may have prompted her to quit the series.

Asked by a fan on Twitter if she had any interest in returning to the show next season, Dina promptly tweeted back, “NONE my soul can’t bear to be around terrible people.”

Given the reports about Dina’s outrage over Jacqueline’s return, it’s safe to assume that Laurita is one of the “terrible people” she’s referring to.

Of course, it’s possible Dina was fired and is now trying to save face, but either way, it looks as though yet another Manzo won’t be returning to the Housewives franchise.

Watch The Real Housewives of New Jersey online at TV Fanatic to try and figure who will exit next.

Caroline Manzo: Cheated on By Husband Al; Reality Star Quit The Real Housewives of New Jersey to Hide Affair, Source Says

When Caroline Manzo quit The Real Housewives of New Jersey, she was probably hoping to put the drama of the show behind her.

But even though she’s moved on with a new reality series, Caroline can’t seem to escape the bombshell revelation that reportedly caused her to quit the show.

Caroline Manzo Up Close

Sources tell Radar Online that while filming season five last year, Caroline was confronted by Teresa Giudice’s friend Penny Drossos.

During an argument with Manzo, Drossos was heard to remark, “F–k you, the Jill card is on the table.”

“Jill is Al Manzo’s longtime mistress,” one insider revealed. “Caroline ripped off her microphone and bolted for the door. That’s the real reason she left the show.”

Caroline’s confessed in the past that her husband may not have always been entirely faithful, but she was reportedly terrified by the idea of the details of his decades-long affair being made public.

Manzo has released a life advice book and plays a more motherly role on her new series Manzo’d With Children. Sources say Caroline knows that if the word got out that she helped her husband conceal his affair, it would shatter her image.

The confrontation with Drossos apparently took place in front of Bravo cameras, but the network agreed to not air the argument.  Manzo had already quit RHONJ, and producers reportedly didn’t want to discourage her from returning to the network for a spinoff.

“If Caroline wasn’t coming back to the show, there was no reason to air it,” the source claims. “She wouldn’t be back next season to defend herself.”

For some vintage Caroline watch The Real Housewives of New Jersey online.

To see what kind of motherly wisdom she’s dishing out nowadays, watch Manzo’d With Children online at TV Fanatic.

Faye Grant Slams Stephen Collins Extortion Claim as “Offensive and Outrageous”

Stephen Collins and Faye Grant are embroiled in a bitter divorce battle.

According to the official legal documents, over $14 million is at stake, most of it earned by the veteran TV actor.

For this reason, an attorney for Collins states, Grant has been trying to blackmail his client by threatening to expose an audio recording she made of Collins speaking in a 2012 therapy session.

The tape – listen to it HERE – clearly features this former 7th Heaven star admitting to three cases of sexual molestation, including one in which he placed an 11-year old girl’s hand on his penis.

Grant has already denied leaking the tape and, in a statement released on Wednesday, she also fought back against claims of extortion.

“This is a deeply sad situation for everyone involved,” Grant says. “With regard to the divorce proceedings, I am seeking no more than that to which I am legally entitled under the laws of the State of California.

“The recording of Mr. Collins’ statements has not been part of family court proceedings or any negotiations related to that action at any time.”

A trial for this estranged couple’s divorce is set for November 12.

Grant’s lawyer, meanwhile, has also come out with a statement.

It reads that any extortion assertion is “fabricated and defamatory, and could not be farther from the truth.”

It also details how Grant turned over the damning audio to the authorities two years ago and labels Collins’ attempt to distract from the actual incidents in question as “offensive and outrageous.”

“Contrary to the efforts by Mr. Collins’ lawyer to infer that my client tried to extort a settlement from Mr. Collins with the recording, neither my client nor any of her representatives ever made the recording part of the family law Proceedings,” this statement concludes.

“As stated previously, neither Faye nor any of her representatives had any part in providing the audio tape or any part thereof to the media.”

Seventh Heaven


Mackenzie Rosman wasn’t available for this Seventh Heaven reunion because she was too busy posing in lingerie and trying to shed her child star image.

Kendra on Top Sneak Peeks: "Broken" Hank Reaches Out … to Jessica Hall

Friday night on Kendra on Top Season 3 Episode 2, Hank Baskett and Kendra Wilkinson begin the process of picking up the pieces of their shattered marriage.

Or so it appears. It’s not like either of them knows quite what to do at this point.

In the aftermath of Hank cheating on her with Ava London, Kendra sent Hank away with their son to New Mexico, where their parents’ live, for the boy’s benefit.

From there, he reaches out … to Jessica Hall, Kendra’s best friend. Say what?

Last week’s Kendra on Top Season 3 Episode 1 gave us a look at exactly what happened when Wilkinson first learned the truth about her man’s affair.

Cheating is devastating. Cheating with a transsexual model named Ava London who revealed the details of their mutual masturbation to the tabloids?

We can’t even imagine what was going through Kendra’s mind.

In another clip from Kendra on Top Season 3 Episode 2, it’s clear she doesn’t really know the answer to that either. When Hank comes back, it’s awkward …

What do you even say to a man who does this? Not a lot.

Lately, based on her interviews with the media, it seems like Kendra has made overtures toward her man and making this work, despite what he did.

She might try to rewrite history a bit and cast doubt on what really happened, but Hank cheated on Kendra with Ava London. The lie detector test proves it.

The phone calls between Baskett and London prove it.

More importantly, her reaction on the show proves it.

Deep down, she knows she has life-changing decisions and even more importantly, life-changing lessons to learn no matter what she decides to do.

Will her loyalty to Hank and their family win out over her rage? Can he possibly undo the damage here? What will become of their once-happy family?

We’ll find out a little bit more of what happened earlier this summer Friday night, when she’s left alone to care for her 5-week-old daughter on Episode 2.

Jessica Hall has been dutifully by her fellow Playmate’s side throughout this ordeal, but feeling like she needs more support, Kendra reaches out to her mom.

Should be interesting to watch Kendra on Top online.

There was a time when Kendra and Hank looked to be a very happy couple. This photo was snapped in 2012.

Melissa Gorga Reacts to Teresa Giudice Prison Sentence: Pray For Her…

Melissa Gorga and Teresa Giudice have not always gotten along so well.

But nothing brings a family together like a long prison sentence.

Late last week, Giudice was sentenced to 15 months in jail for financial fraud, while her husband Joe Giudice received 41 months in the slammer.

And last night, Gorga took to her Bravo blog to express sympathy for her sister-in-law/Real Housewives of New Jersey rival.

Teresa vs. Melissa

“Obviously this has been a very tough week. We are heartbroken for our family and especially those four sweet girls,” Gorga wrote of the Giudices’ four daughters. “Pray for them. No matter how you feel, I hope everyone is wishing their family strength and faith.”

Teresa, who claims she did not understand that a plea bargain could land her in jail, tells the new issue of Us Weekly that she hopes to use her punishment as a “life lesson.”

She plans to “teach” her children and the consequences of their actions through the illegal dealings of her and her husband.

Speaking of those children, Teresa also says 13-year old daughter Gia Giudice is aware of what’s going on, but the three youngest (Gabriella, 10, Milania, 8, and Audriana, 5.) “don’t know anything.”

Teresa Giudice begins serving her sentence on January 5, while Joe will then serve his once her time is complete.

Teresa Giudice: Table Flipping


And now for the classic. Teresa’s face is priceless as she famously flips the table. Bravo. Bravo.

Brooks Ayers Diagnosed With Cancer; Vicki Gunvalson Saddened By News

Brooks Ayers has just been diagnosed with Stage 3 cancer, and Vicki Gunvalson of The Real Housewives of Orange County is understandably devastated.

Gunvalson expressed her sadness over the troubling turn for on-again, off-again love following his diagnosis of “aggressive and fast-moving” cancer.

“I am very sad about the recent diagnosis of Brooks’s cancer reoccurrence,” she said.

Brooks

Added the original cast member, “It really puts life in perspective and makes you realize just how important health, family and friends are during this time.”

The Real Housewives of Orange County staple thanked her fans “for respecting his privacy and for all your thoughts and prayers for Brooks during this time.”

Ayers was initially diagnosed with Non-Hodgkins lymphoma about a year ago.

Following the recent developments, he’s “determined to fight this horrible disease and am surrounded by love and support from people who truly care about me.”

“Life is funny sometimes; sometimes it is not,” Ayers told Radar this week.

“Let me assure you that I am going to remain positive and continue to battle this disease vigorously with much tenacity along with seeking the appropriate medical care.”

Vicki Gunvalson and Brooks Ayers have been together since 2011, shortly after her 2010 split from longtime husband Donn played out on Bravo.

Lately, the embattled couple has been in the news for all the wrong reasons, as video surfaced of Brooks admitting he cheated on her with hookers.

He also copped in another video to hurting her emotionally and physically, leading many fans to decry that apparent reference to domestic abuse.

Whatever happens, we wish the couple the best in this tough time.

Farrah Abraham Films Christian Horror Movie, Tweets #Actor Selfie on Set

Continuing to broaden her career horizons to a surprising and always entertaining degree, Farrah Abraham has been cast in Axeman 2: Overkill.

The ’80s-style horror film has already started filming, as the Teen Mom star informed us from the set of the sure to be epic motion picture event:

Farrah Abraham #Acting

Farrah Abraham, clearly excited, Tweeted, “Wow first movie #OnTheSet #Memory2Remember LOVE THIS! #California what?! Lines Lines Lines #Actor”

It’s unclear how Farrah’s managed to take time off from her stripping gig in Austin and singing “Blowin'” live (you gotta hear that), but here she is.

If the backdoor beauty has proven anything though, it’s that she can juggle jobs like James Deen juggles her … yeah, you get the idea. Multitasker.

In Axeman 2, she plays the role of Fannie Rae Baker.

She calls this girl a “conservative evangelical do-gooder hiking through a place called Cutler’s Creek for a couple’s Christian camp where the film takes place.”

Hey, Farrah has said one of her goals is to be a Christian movie actress, so this is the next best thing. Though it may not end well for her character.

According to the film’s press release, Farrah/Fannie and her fellow Bible-thumpers look be doomed in the end, “when The Axeman shows up.”

His goal? “To separate them … and dismember them.”

Then again, you just never know. Sounds like the kind of gripping plot you’ll bend over backwards to see play out when it hits theaters nationwide.

We kid. You’ll only be able to see this if you watch movies online or On Demand, because we’d be surprised if it even got a theatrical release.

Farrah Abraham


Oooooh, lord. Teen Mom star Farrah Abaham wanted to be a singer, and released some absolutely horrible songs to no avail (but great amusement). She’s also a terrible actress, as evidenced by her attempts to convince us her sex tape was released by mistake. Screaming is a different story, as she proved with James Deen …

15 Reality Stars Who Wish They Could Act or Sing, But Have No Talent Whatsoever

Except for The Amazing Race, which wins Emmys for a reason (because it’s a great show), reality TV is a lot of mindless entertainment that we watch for very few discernible reasons.

Aside from living in exotic locales and the likelihood of making out with hot guys and girls, what other reason do people have for starring on reality TV shows? 

Well, most of these shameless individuals see their time on reality TV as a starting ground for bigger and better things! Fame! Fortune! A #1 hit or a box office smash! 

Except that doesn’t usually happen, though. See below:

Farrah Abraham


Oooooh, lord. Teen Mom star Farrah Abaham wanted to be a singer, and released some absolutely horrible songs to no avail (but great amusement). She’s also a terrible actress, as evidenced by her attempts to convince us her sex tape was released by mistake. Screaming is a different story, as she proved with James Deen …

The 15 reality stars in this gallery, none of whom can act or sing but all of whom have tried, prove this point and then some. Often with hilarious results.

They hoped their reality TV shows would launch them into superstardom. They were wrong … mostly. In the case of Farrah Abraham and Kim Kardashian?

Millions of dollars have been made, and celebrity status has been achieved. Not how they might have drawn it up when they started out, but still.

Others, such as Paris Hilton, faded into obscurity after the rise of Kim, who is basically Paris what Paris always wanted to be. Hilton’s still rich, of course.

Then there’s Heidi Montag, who has faded completely into D-list obscurity after many failed attempts to build her “brand” AND lost all her money.

But she still has Spencer Pratt, so there’s that?

Bethenny Frankel & Jason Hoppy: Searching For Love on Millionaire Matchmaker?!

Bethenny Frankel and Jason Hoppy are both coming to Bravo’s Millionaire Matchmaker … if the show’s mostly ineffectual host, Patti Stanger, has her way.

Bethenny Frankel in Bed

Stanger, the Millionaire Matchmaker herself, is a believer in second chances at love. One would think, since actual matches on her show are rare.

What she’s an even bigger believer in is ratings, and as a result, she’s looking to sign up the divorced duo for her upcoming celebrity-only season!

According to a source close to both stars, Frankel’s beau has reason to worry:

“Patti is a big fan of Bethenny’s and even though Bethenny currently has a boyfriend, Patti thinks she could tremendously benefit from coming on the show.”

“Patti would find the most eligible bachelors, and carefully screen each one.”

She isn’t out to rub this in Jason’s face, though. She wants him on, too!

“Her skills could also be used for Bethenny’s estranged husband, Jason, too! He would be a great guy to try and match up with a single, successful woman.”

“Jason seems to be a great dad, very involved.”

Bethenny and Jason had an ugly divorce and even uglier custody battle if you recall, so the idea of a reunion on Bravo might be met with skepticism.

The plan is not for them to appear together, the source says, although he admits that anything is possible. “That could be very interesting television!”

Patti must be one to watch The Real Housewives of New York City online, because she is flat out raiding her fellow Bravo program’s talent pool.

Sonja Morgan already filmed an episode for the new season, and rumors of a newly single Ramona Singer on Millionaire Matchmaker are also swirling.

Though Singer hasn’t signed on yet, Morgan “is advising Ramona to do it because it was so fun … It would be a great confidence booster for Ramona.”

Whatever Singer, Frankel and Hoppy decide, the upcoming Millionaire Matchmaker Season “will be the best yet, as it will involve celebrities!” the source explains.

“The celebrities will be set-up with regular people, so it will be interesting to see how those interactions go! Everyone is hopeful Ramona will do it.”
