How Does Jill Zarin Manage to Keep Getting Press?

A year and a half after she was axed from The Real Housewives of New York City, Jill Zarin is refusing to go gentle into that good night.

Kelly Bensimon Is Insulted By Other Women's Vaginas

On part one of last night's reunion of Real Housewives of New York, Kelly Bensimon mentioned that she was named by Cosmopolitan as one of the "five most nice celebrities ever." No evidence of this list exists online, so we just have to take her word for it, which is actually a really hard thing to do, considering… » 7/26/11 12:50pm 7/26/11 12:50pm

Wearing A Good Bra Is Not A Symptom Of Pregnancy

Instead of I Didn't Know I Was Pregnant, last night's season finale of Real Housewives of New York was like an episode of I Didn't Know I Was Menopausal.

Real Housewives: "Mean Tweeting" Is The New "Systematic Bullying"

A common theme over the last two seasons of Real Housewives of New York is that whenever someone says something that is less than flattering about another person, it is perceived (by some) as "bullying." And when it happens on the internet, they perceive it as cyberbullying and when it happens on Twitter they refer… » 7/01/11 2:45pm 7/01/11 2:45pm

Countess LuAnn's New Music Video Is Terribly Subtle

One year after she first sang her second dance single live on Watch What Happens, Countess LuAnn finally got around to actually recording "Chic, C'est la Vie," and the video for it dropped today.

The Real Housewives Lawsuit Index

Perhaps they are targeted because of their newfound fame, or because they're just so fabulous that bitches are just jealous. But in reviewing all of the lawsuits—over 60 of them!—against several cast members of The Real Housewives franchise, a common theme seems to be that these people simply don't like to pay their… » 6/16/11 5:20pm 6/16/11 5:20pm

Real Housewife Cindy Barshop Slapped With Racial Discrimination Suit

All The Things That Make Housewife Sonja Awesome

Sonja Morgan is an amazing gift to the Housewives franchise. Over-sexed and boozy with a disregard for panties and the fact that everything she's doing is being filmed, she made the ladies' trip to Morocco worth watching. In fact if she wasn't there being a drunk mess what would the brunettes have to talk about? Was… » 5/27/11 11:00am 5/27/11 11:00am

Real Housewives Fight — With Each Other — For Marriage Equality

Three divorcées, a tightly-wound Brooklynite and her comically ambiguous husband arrived at a demonstration for social progress and then proceeded to act like social morons when they all started fighting with each other over who had the right to speak at the event after Sonja—the grand marshal—wanted the exclusive… » 4/15/11 11:30am 4/15/11 11:30am

Real Housewives: New Journey, Same Baggage

Jill Zarin knew that she'd have to rehab her image quite a bit to recover from coming off as a mean girl last year, so on last night's premiere of the fourth season of Real Housewives of New York Jill made it known that she's changed and she's going to be nothing but kind—until she ran into "that fucking bitch Alex… » 4/08/11 3:30pm 4/08/11 3:30pm

Kelly Bensimon Still Sticking To Her Story Of Being Sane

Today, most of the cast members of Real Housewives of New York—everyone except the Countess and Sonja—were on The View today to promote the new season (premiering April 7).
