From her bio:
Marisa Zanuck is a go-to name when it comes to buying and selling Los Angeles real estate. A Beverly Hills native, Marisa grew up fascinated with high-end properties, but it is her disciplined work ethic that has made her successful. After high school, Marisa quickly worked her way up the real estate ranks from receptionist to assistant, before finally getting her license to become an agent.

Marisa’s clients love dealing with her and she feels lucky and excited to get a chance to go to work for them every day.

Zanuck declined to comment when we reached her via phone, and a Bravo rep didn’t get back to us.

Adrienne Maloof Biography

From Wikipedia:

“Money is what I have, not who I am.”

Adrienne Maloof-Nassif is the third child and only daughter of the late entrepreneurGeorge J. Maloof, Sr., and his wife Colleen who, along with Adrienne, co-owns the holdings of theMaloof Companies with her brothers George J. Maloof, Jr.Joe MaloofGavin Maloof and Phil Maloof. Born and raised in AlbuquerqueNew Mexico, where her father owned a Coorsbeer distributorship, Adrienne was awarded a full scholarship to the University of New Mexico, where she earned a degree in political science and was a member of Pi Beta Phi.[7]

She is married to Dr. Paul Nassif, a rhinoplasty specialist and cosmetic surgeon who appeared on E!‘s Dr. 90210. The couple and their three sons, aged 7 and 4 (twins), reside in Beverly HillsCalifornia.[7]

Adrienne is NOT the godmother to Taylor’s child, Kennedy.
The following was taken From ‘Maloof Family Biographies’: (http://www.nba.com/kings/news/Joe_and_Gavin_Maloof_Bio.html):

Adrienne Maloof-Nassif is co-owner of Maloof Companies, which include the Sacramento Kings; The Palms Casino Resort in Las Vegas; Maloof Productions; Maloof Music; and Maloof Money Cup, a professional skateboard park franchise and competition event. As head of Marketing and Promotions for the Maloof brands, Adrienne has utilized her innate creativity and marketing prowess to successfully advance Maloof Companies’ many interests across multiple entertainment platforms.
Renowned for her business acumen, Adrienne received her first lessons in business from her father and entrepreneur George J. Maloof, Sr. From an early age, George Sr.—who owned a number of enterprises, including the Houston Rockets—groomed his children to become business leaders, introducing them to his hotel, trucking and banking businesses in their formative years.

After receiving her degree in political science from the University of New Mexico—where, as one of the country’s top tennis players, she received a full scholarship—Adrienne worked in Sales, Advertising and Marketing for the family’s liquor and wine business. In that role, Adrienne was responsible for all sales and promotion of Gallo Wines, expanding the look and appeal of the brand. After a few years of success in this part of the business, Adrienne’s role in the Maloof Companies organically took an integrated role into all aspects of the Maloof industries.

For over two decades, Adrienne has led Marketing and Promotions for numerous facets of the Maloof family business—both past and present. Her approach to marketing is one focused on ensuring that her customers feel a ‘personal touch’ during every interaction with the Maloof brands. In addition to traditional marketing, Adrienne is also developing and producing numerous films and several reality shows to be released next year for Maloof Productions.

Philanthropic work is one of Adrienne’s many passions. Due to her love and concern for animals and children, Adrienne joined forces with the Sacramento SPCA to serve as an honorary spokesperson. Her financial contributions allowed the SPCA to complete a new shelter in February of 2002 and develop the Adrienne Maloof Camp Kindness program, which allows underprivileged youth to learn the proper care and handling of animals. Her Camp Kindness program was so successful in Sacramento that she is currently in the process of developing a similar program for the Los Angeles SPCA. Additionally, Adrienne also endorses School on Wheels, a nonprofit aimed at enhancing the educational opportunities for homeless children from kindergarten through 12th grade; and the Good News Foundation, a group geared to promoting the good works of non-profit community organizations.

Adrienne presently lives in Beverly Hills, California with her husband, Dr. Paul Nassif, and their three sons.

Business Bio:

Adrienne Maloof serves as Secretary and Treasurer of Maloof Companies. Ms. Maloof is involved in all aspects as well as the overall leadership of the Maloof Companies. Her marketing and promotional contributions have been invaluable in the Sacramento Kings becoming one of the most recognizable franchises in all of professional sports. In addition, her lifelong interest in competitive professional dancing has allowed her to lend her expertise to the Kings’ widely popular Royal Court Dance Team. Her financial contributions allowed the SPCA to complete a new shelter in February of 2002 and develop the Adrienne Maloof Camp Kindness program, which allows underprivileged youth to learn the proper care and handling of animals. Her Camp Kindness program was so successful in Sacramento, that she is currently in the process of developing a similar program for the Los Angeles SPCA. Because of her love and concern for animals and children, Adrienne has joined forces with the Sacramento SPCA as an honorary spokesperson. Growing up in Albuquerque, New Mexico, she was one of the country’s top ranked junior tennis players and went on to play collegiate tennis at the University of New Mexico, where she earned a bachelor’s degree in political science. She resides in Los Angeles.

September 18, 2010    Albuquerque Journal:
Albuquerque native Adrienne Maloof is about to get real — as in Bravo TV’s “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.”
Maloof, 49, has been named as one of the cast members of the newest edition in Bravo’s “Real Housewives” reality TV franchise.

The Beverly Hills show, which debuts Oct. 14, follows six of Beverly Hills’ affluent, pampered and privileged women, all heiresses and entrepreneurs, letting the drama unfold amid gleaming mansions, shiny jewelry, fanciful outings to Rodeo Drive and other accoutrements of a lavish lifestyle, according to the Bravo website.

The show’s producers, who have already begun a promotions blitz, say the cast members will “deliver the star power and the drama.”

Maloof and her brothers, George Jr., Joe, Gavin and Phil, are the children of Colleen and the late George J. Maloof Sr., who operated a Coors beer distributorship in New Mexico, the original source of the family’s wealth.

The Maloof family’s sports and entertainment holdings now include the Sacramento Kings basketball team; the Palms Casino Resort in Las Vegas, Nev.; Sweeping Palms Entertainment, which produces film, television and music projects; and the Maloof Money Cup, the world’s largest skateboard competition.

Adrienne Maloof was one of the nation’s top-ranked youth tennis players and later earned a full scholarship to play tennis at the University of New Mexico. She graduated with a bachelor’s degree in political science but had a knack for marketing and promotions.

She has controlled much of the Maloof Co.’s marketing operations for more than 20 years and is credited with making the Sacramento Kings one of the most recognized NBA franchises and turning the Palms Casino and Resort into a destination on the celebrity circuit.

Maloof moved to Beverly Hills 15 years ago and has championed a number of charitable organizations and causes including the School On Wheels program, the Good News Foundation, and the Camp Kindness program that works with the Sacramento SPCA to provide education and resources for economically disadvantaged youths to care for their pets.

She is married to prominent Beverly Hills plastic surgeon Dr. Paul Nassif and they have three young sons.

The other cast members of “The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” are Taylor Armstrong, wife of venture capitalist Russell Armstrong; Camille Grammer, soon-to-be ex-wife of actor Kelsey Grammer; Lisa VanderPump, a transplanted British restaurateur and designer; and Kim and Kyle Richards, former child stars and aunts of Paris and Nicky Hilton.

Real Housewives of Beverly Hills in Paris

Watch out Paris, there's beaucoup de drama coming your way!

The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills are going to be leaving this weekend to embark on their first international trip as a group, and they have picked the French capital as their getaway destination.

As we previously reported the ladies have taken several short trips this season to Ojai, California, and Las Vegas, Nevada, and the trips are always booze filled with LOTS of tears and drama.

Most recently,  the cast was in Las Vegas  to shoot a special episode of the show. Eddie Cibrian's ex-wife, Brandi Glanville, was taking pole dancing lessons in preparation for a sexy new gig hosting bachelorette parties. During the disastrous trip to Ojai, Taylor Armstrong had a "catastrophic meltdown" during the weekend spa getaway because she was heavily intoxicated the entire trip!
Lisa Vanderpump, Brandi Glanville, Kyle Richards and Yolanda Hadid are all Europe bound, with Taylor Armstrong still on the fence when it comes to joining the ladies or not.



"Taylor is still trying to decide whether or not she wants to go," a source close to the situation tells RadarOnline.com. "Taylor is just acting very sneaky and secretive recently. It's almost as if she is trying to create some mystery around her. Adrienne Maloof decided not to go because the other girls keep ganging up on her, and it just got to the point of being utterly ridiculous. Kim Richards most likely won't go even though the other ladies want her to, because she just wants to spend time with her kids. Kim doesn't feel quite strong enough yet to go overseas and wants to put her sobriety first."
The third season Real Housewives of Beverly Hills will premiere this fall on Bravo.

Adrienne Maloof Divorce

The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Adrienne Maloof's marriage to plastic surgeon, Dr. Paul Nassif, is on the rocks, and the couple is talking about formally separating.

Maloof and Nassif have been married for over nine years, and have three sons together.
It's been a grueling season of taping for the upcoming season of the hit Bravo television show, and our sources tell us that has taken a toll on their marriage.

"There is no other person. It's for a variety of reasons that they are contemplating separation. Adrienne was dragged through the dirt during filming of the upcoming season, and it really wore on her. Paul and Adrienne have always fought, it's how they were as a couple. However, at this point, they realize that they are just want very different things, and neither one of them is happy in the marriage," an insider tells RadarOnline.com exclusively.



"Neither one is ready to pull the plug and file for divorce, they are trying to figure out the best way to deal with this, and there is a lot of love between Paul and Adrienne. If they didn't love each other as much as they do, either one would just walk away without looking back. They aren't at that stage yet, and are discussing a separation," another source close to the situation tells us.

Maloof didn't go on a trip with the other housewives to Paris, France, as RadarOnline.com exclusively reported, because she was fed up with the drama. "Adrienne Maloof decided not to go because the other girls keep ganging up on her, and it just got to the point of being utterly ridiculous," the insider previously told us.

Making matters worse, the reunion show of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills is going to be filming on Monday night at an undisclosed location.


"Adrienne might not even go because of all the issues going on in her personal life. Adrienne is putting her family first, and she just doesn't know if she is ready to face the other women after everything that has transpired over this past season," the source says.

Carole Radziwill Boyfriend

On  a previous episode of The Real Housewives of New York (Season 5, Episode 2: “Say What You Mean, Just Don’t Say It Mean”), we really got to know the new housewives’ significant others a lot better. There was Aviva Drescher’s husband Reid Drescher (cousin to Fran), Heather Thomson’s husband Jonathan Schindler (unrelated to Schindler’s List, okay Aviva?), and who was that scruffy guy in the convertible with Carole Radziwill? Oh, right: musician Russ Irwin.

Carole mentions that she’s dating the rock star in a conversation with Aviva, and before we could even doubt just how real this “casual,” “long-distance” relationship is, there’s Carole sitting with her bare feet on the dashboard of Russ’ convertible (something Ramona Singer thinks is “COOL”).

The relationship is so real, in fact, that Carole has appeared in Russ’ music video (watch them together in his video for “Manhattan” here). We wish we could fully believe Carole when she says that she doesn’t get jealous, and is totally fine with seeing other people when they’re not together, but she did insist on asking him where Russ’ groupies go after he’s done performing with Aerosmith.

What do you think of their relationship? Aviva clearly wasn’t in favor of anything that isn’t strictly monogamous, but we want to hear from you. Is it true that all is fair in love and war?


Heather Thompson Net Worth

Heather Thomson, a fashion designer who was recently announced as a member of the cast of the latest season of The Real Housewives of New York City, has a fashionable net worth of $10 million. In addition to her net worth and her new involvement in the Bravo reality TV series, she is the primary creative talent behind the fashion line Yummie Tummie, the mission statement of which is summed up in its slogan: “live. shape. happy.” The new line of shapewear proposes to make you “forget everything you know about shapewear.” Shapewear, for those not in the know about such things, is a type of garment that seeks to slim the figure of the wearer through control and smoothing. An antiquated example of this idea can be found in the Victorian era corsets, which operated by forcefully tightening around the waist to achieve a temporary but incredibly painful and uncomfortable slimming effect. Yummie seeks to capitalize on the trend recently popularized by brands such as Spanx, and if Heather Thomson has anything to say about it, Yummie will eventually surpass Spanx in terms of popularity and widespread brand saturation.

Aviva Drescher Net Worth

Aviva Drescher, wife of Reid Drescher, has a net worth of $20 million. Her husband Reid Drescher is the founder, President and CEO of the hedge fund Cape One Financial Advisors. He is also the President and CEO of Spencer Clark LLC, a boutique investment bank. Both are located in New York City. Drescher was recently announced as one of the newest members of the cast of the popular Bravo reality TV series The Real Housewives of New York City. That program, which premiered on March 4, 2008, has been a ratings success to go along with Bravo’s other Housewives series, including The Real Housewives of Atlanta, The Real Housewives of Orange County, and more. So it may come as a surprise to some readers that the show was not originally slated to be part of the Real Housewives series. Originally titled Manhattan Moms, the show documented the exploits and adventures of Bethenny Frankel, LuAnn de Lesseps, Alex McCord, Ramona Singer, and Jill Zarin in its first season.

Aviva Drescher Dad

Anyone who has watched one of the Real Housewives shows knows that sometimes it's the Housewives' relatives who bring the best drama — and the funniest lines. Based on a recent tweet from Aviva Drescher, it seems that her dad might be the next in a long line of fun Real Housewives relatives.

Recently, Aviva tweeted, "My dad (who u will soon meet) just referred to Ramona as a 'fruitcake' at the shoe store! Lol funny."

It sounds like Aviva's dad was talking about the now-infamous shoe store visit from The Real Housewives of New York Season 5, Episode 6: "I'm UK, You're UK," where Ramona Singer went gaga over Aviva's prosthetic leg.

Based on Aviva's note that fans will soon meet her father, it sounds like he'll be appearing on the show. If so, we hope he brings his snarky sensibility on screen.

Sonya Morgan Toaster Oven

 

Sonja Tremont-Morgan brings a new twist to the word "chef" on Real Housewives of NYC. She cooks in the Toaster Oven and shares one of her favorite recipes! Sonja Morgan is a fixture of New York City society, running in social circles that include European royalty and couture designers. Sonja studied Marketing at the Fashion Institute of Technology and in turn represented high-end luxury brands while keeping her Berkshire bred sensibilities and values. Having jet-setted around the world and modeled in Paris and Milan, Sonja worked for multiple restaurants across the US, from New York to L.A., as a consultant and manager.

Harry Dubin Biography

We hear that tonight’s (June 18) episode of The Real Housewives of New York (Season 5, Episode 3: "Boozy Brunch") will feature Aviva Drescher’s ex-husband Harry Dubin, the much-talked-about party guy who everyone seems to know — intimately. So who is this mystery man? Here are five things to know.

He has slept with LuAnn and Sonja. To be fair, this is according to Heather Thomson, who spilled those particular beans on a double date with her and Aviva’s husbands in the last episode (Season 5, Episode 2: “Say What You Mean, Just Don’t Say It Mean”). But Sonja Morgan claims she and Harry have been friends forever, and LuAnn de Lesseps has yet to issue a denial.

He’s bank. Harry is a real estate investor in New York, and CelebrityNetWorth.com estimates he is currently worth $15 million.

Ladies love him. One quick glance at Harry’s appearances on Patrick McMullan’s socialite-heavy photo site leads us to believe that he is quite the ladies’ man. He loves posing with pretty young things, and we can’t honestly spot one (out of the many) girls that appears on his arm more than once. We do know that he currently has a girlfriend, Georgia.

We’ve seen him before. In the RHONY Season 5 premiere (Season 5, Episode 1: “A New New York”), we were treated to a brief glimpse of Harry from one of Sonja’s old parties during Season 4. He was one of Sonja’s friends who pointed out that she forgot to wear underpants during her royalty-themed costume bash. So he’s sort of a ghost from Housewives past.

He’s the father of Aviva’s son. As Aviva mentioned in the premiere, she and Harry have one child together: Harrison, their 10-year-old son.

Keep all these things in mind while watching Harry in action!

Reid Drescher Biography

Real Housewives Sleuth Was Featured on Wetpaint! Read the article below, or at http://www.wetpaint.com/real-housewives-of-new-york/articles/who-is-reid-drescher-5-things-to-know-about-avivas-husband-on-rhony

"With every new housewife comes a new househusband (except for cool Carole Radziwill, who just brings her own rock star). We’ve taken a closer look at Aviva Drescher’s ex-husband Harry Dubin, who may or may not be a deadbeat dad, but let’s get to know Aviva’s current husband, the seemingly well-mannered and charming man in Aviva’s polished life. Here are 5 things to know about Reid Drescher.



He’s a Real Banker of New York City. However dubious these estimated net worths may be, we’ve found them to be accurate and helpful. According to TheRichest.org, Reid Howard Drescher has an estimated net worth of $20 million. His career has been almost entirely spent in banking and hedge funds, and he founded Spencer Clarke LLC, a reputable New York firm.

His education pales in comparison to his wife’s. On The Real Housewives of New York, Aviva proudly let it slip that she attended Vassar College for undergraduate studies, NYU to get her Master’s degree in French Literature, and then Cardozo School of Law for her J.D. According to a BusinessWeek profile, Reid simply graduated with a B.A. from the University of Miami. Strange how he wound up the multi-millionaire and she the housewife, no?

Reid has been married before. In fact, Aviva and Reid’s relationship and eventual marriage resembles The Brady Bunch. Aviva and Reid each had one child from their former marriages when they met; Aviva’s son Harrison and Reid’s daughter Veronica. Once married, the lovebirds had two more children named Hudson and Sienna.

They met cute. As Aviva has revealed on the show, Reid first hit on her at Bed, Bath and Beyond. According to a RHONY blog, “Mr. Drescher told his daughter Veronica to go play with her son Harrison, so he’d have a reason to approach the statuesque single mother.”

Oh, and his cousin is Fran Drescher. Despite rumors that Fran told Aviva not to do the show, Aviva told the New York Observer that Fran appears on Season 5, and “She used to not like reality shows until I started doing them.”

The Real Housewives of New York airs Mondays at 9 p.m. ET/PT on Bravo.

Albie Manzo BLK Water

When Ramapo High School alum Albie Manzo's law school dreams fell apart during last season's Real Housewives of New Jersey the Franklin Lakes resident admits he didn't know what to do next.
Naturally, he applied to other law schools, and was dismayed that he wasn't accepted. After one particularly good interview he found out why: The RHONJ limelight cast an unfavorable hue on his applications.

"Schools were afraid to take a chance on me coming back because of the high visibility of the show," Manzo told Patch. "I was very discouraged and didn't know what I would do."

This apparent "black" listing may prove to be his lucky color: it matches his new venture, the health beverage blk., which has been flying off shelves across the country since its launch this spring.

blk., or black water as it was called when Albie and his uncle Chris Laurita discovered it last year at the food show in New York, is Canadian spring water infused with fulvic acid, a natural nutrient-rich compound that has been used in alternative healing circles for centuries.

The beverage's black color comes from a chemical reaction between the water and fulvic acid, and is part of the drink's allure.

"The color is what gets people listening in the first place," Albie said.
The health and energy boosting benefits, however, is what keeps people drinking it. He said it leaves him feeling refreshed, like he'd gotten a solid eight-hours night's sleep.

In typical Manzo-Laurita style, the entire family supports the business. Both Chris and Albie Manzo work on the business end of the company, along with their Uncle Chris Laurita, who is a partner in the venture. Manzo mom Caroline and aunt Jacqueline have helped out on the promotion end with public appearances (just this weekend, they gave samples at Corrado's in Wayne).

But it was a Canadian family who "invented" blk., both accidentally and out out of necessity. About four years ago, the mother was diagnosed with breast cancer and was sick and weak from chemotherapy. In search of something to make her feel better, her children took to the internet seeking alternative treatments and holistic remedies when they discovered the free-radical scavenger known as fulvic acid.

They mixed it with spring water, and it turned black. They gave this black water to their mom. She drank it and felt better. So she kept drinking it. Four years later, she is not only alive but thriving. And while they wouldn't go so far as to say the water cured her, they believe it restored her strength and increased her stamina to keep fighting.
The family thought the black water was a pretty cool product, so they decided to package it and sell it, which lead them to the food show, where the Manzo-Laurita family found them.
Albie and Chris attended the show on a mission to find something new and different to market using their RHONJ celebrity. They left with several leads, but after researching fulvic acid and meeting with the family in Vancouver, they narrowed the field down to black water, changed its name to blk. and created its sleek, eye-catching packaging.

"They were the nicest people I've ever met," Manzo said. "Then we started drinking the water every day and I felt completely different, physically. I was sold."

Considering what is at the core of the beverage and its effects, its commercial appeal isn't surprising. Fulvic acid is mined from prehistoric sediment and been dubbed a "miracle molecule." The list of ailments it is said to cure is endless and its medicinal history is timeless. Ayervedic medicine calls it shilajit (or salajeet), a rejuvenating agent believed to have anti-inflammatory, anti-anxiety and anti-aging properties.

In western medicine, fulvic acid is being investigated as a treatment for rheumatoid arthritis, fibromyalgia, thyroid conditions, diabetes, eye problems, ulcers, AIDS, cancer and a host of other conditions.

A study published in the Journal of Alzheimer's Disease found that in the laboratory fulvic acid not only inhibits intracelluar Tau protein tangles formation but also may reverse existing tangles. (Simply put, these tangles are a measurement of the neuro-cognitive-degenarative process and a key stage in the development of Alzheimer's disease.)

"Fulvic acid is likely to provide new insights in the development of potential treatments for Alzheimer's disease using natural products," the study authors concluded.
Manzo admits he was skeptical of the claims at first and he doesn't quite understand the science, but the more he drinks it — he downs a bottle a day — and the more he hears from satisfied customers, the more he believes in blk.

One case in particular, he told Patch, has really assured him of the product's potential: A mother gave her autistic son blk. to drink, thinking its unique color might get him drinking more water. The boy not only drank it, he loved it, but the amazing part, he started behaving. The mother reached out to Albie, shocked, who sent her two more cases to try. Her son is stimming less and listening and following directions more. The difference, she told Manzo, is unbelievable.

As is the product's commercial success, Manzo said. "It is blowing off the shelves across the country," he said, noting Wegman’s picked up distribution of it early on. "We literally couldn't believe that people grasped on to it as quickly as they did."

In the Franklin Lakes area, you can find it on the shelves at Food Town in North Haledon and Corrado's in Wayne, and it will soon be available in ShopRite, A&P and King's.

A 15-oz. bottle of blk. retails for $2.49, which Manzo noted is priced matched to the popular coconut water health drinks, blk.'s biggest competitor. Since blk. is only water and fulvic acid, it has zero carbs or calories and no caffeine.


Joe Giudice Cheating

Teresa on betrayal and forgiveness; possibly alluding to Chris cheating on Jacqueline:

“Let me see if I can use an analogy Jacqueline might understand: if you caught your husband flirting with your friend, you would be understandably crushed. Say you worked through it for months though and forgave him. Then you found out he really didn’t just flirt, he slept with her. Two years ago.”

“Does your old forgiveness count? It was two years ago! Why should you care? You said you forgave him! Hypocrite! Um, I say would you care. And that your previous forgiveness doesn’t count because you didn’t know what you were forgiving. You need to work through the new offense that you just found out about. Right?”

Well, Jacqueline is definitely not going to take an accusation that her husband is cheating lightly, so she hit Teresa where it hurt by announcing that Teresa had actually CAUGHT Juicy cheating on her!

Russell Armstrong Gay

Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Russell Armstrong had secrets about his sexual preference that were about to be revealed, and RadarOnline.com has exclusively learned that some were already discovered by his estranged wife, Taylor Armstrong.

According to sources close to the 47-year-old, he was bisexual and worried that a tell-all book was going to out him, along with Taylor.

PHOTOS: Russell Armstrong and Taylor Armstrong In Happier Times

"About six months ago Taylor confided in a close friend that she'd found history for a gay website called Adam4Adam.com on Russell's laptop," the insider told RadarOnline.com.
"He was also spending a lot of time at the gym, but his body wasn't changing, which she claims led her to believe he was meeting with men he'd met off the website and not spending time working out as he claimed."

The insider also tells RadarOnline.com that when Russell was approached for comment about the impending tell-all book, it included great detail about what he liked in the bedroom.

PHOTOS: Celebrities Who Died In Bizarre Circumstances

"Not only was it going to come out that Russell was bisexual, but there were people on the record that were going to talk about the kind of sex he liked," the source said. "He was into S&M type stuff; choking, rough-housing and slapping."

Ronald Richards, Russell Armstrong's attorney tells RadarOnline.com "As Russell Armstrong's attorney engaged for these type of claims, I'm unaware of the existence of any book, and unaware of any information about any adultery. I believe any claim would be false."

The businessman had a history of violence in his past, including allegations of abuse by Taylor and restraining orders filed against him by his ex-wife and an ex-girlfriend.

As RadarOnline.com previously reported, Russell's ex-wife attributes his suicide to his relationship with Taylor and the pressures of being on the hit Bravo TV show, along with immense financial hardship.

Russell was found hanged in the bedroom of a friend's home on Monday night and pronounced dead at 8:16 p.m. by the Los Angeles City Fire Department.

Russell Armstrong Suicide

Physically, at least, Russell Armstrong was the picture of health when he chose to take his own life.
According to the official coroner's report obtained by E! News, the medical examiner who performed an autopsy on the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills husband detected no illnesses or abnormalities in any of his muscles, organs and bones.


But the investigator's report also paints a chilling picture of what the first responders at the scene saw on the night of Aug. 15—three days after Armstrong was last seen alive by his roommate, who ultimately discovered the body after he started getting calls from people who couldn't get a hold of Armstrong.


Coroner investigator Kristy McCracken noted that Armstrong was found hanging in the northwest corner of his bedroom of the one-story Mullholland Drive home he was living in with a friend. The orange extension cord he used was wrapped three times around a wooden beam and looped twice around his neck.
He was clad in a black T-shirt, black briefs and black socks, his lower legs resting against a bench.

Marks on his neck and the condition of his body, face, limbs, etc. were all consistent with his apparent cause of death—suicide by hanging, the report states. Detectives at the scene did not suspect foul play and the eventual autopsy agreed with the supposition.

Per the report, Armstrong was officially identified early the following morning through a fingerprint scan, but a Det. Jones told McCracken that a friend had informed Armstrong's wife, Taylor, of his death sometime on the night he was found.

Deputy Medical Examiner Yulai Wang signed off on the official cause of death on Wednesday, after toxicology screens came back negative for drugs and alcohol.

“Step back step back! Watch out I need a glass of wine I heard Jeana’s here,” Tamra warns.
“The last time I saw Jeana was after throwing a glass of wine in her face,” she reminisces about their explosive last meeting when they fought until Tamra tossed her drink in Jeana’s face.

Jeana and her daughter Kara greet Vicki Gunvalson, who is wearing a heavy fur coat that she immediately brags her dead-beat dad boyfriend Brooks Ayers gave her.

“My relationship with Jeana since the party last year is nothing,” Vicki admits. “We never see each other we never call each other. I miss her.”

However, Tamra certainly doesn’t miss Jeana and explains where her animosity comes from.
“I have a lot of anger towards Jeana,” Tamra says. “I think most of it comes from the fact that when I was married our families were close but she ran to Simon’s side and talked sh*t about me.”

Kim Richards Drugs

There were more than the regular amount of tense moments during the The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills reunion show that filmed last week, when Kyle Richards had a meltdown over talk of her sister, Kim’s drug use.

Kim was not there to defend herself as she was undergoing treatment for drug and alcohol addiction, as she was forced to do by Bravo executives, as RadarOnline.com was first to report.

However, Kyle was more than willing to defend her older sister, and the result was explosive drama in its purest form.

During the reunion, the ladies hashed out the controversies from the second season that encompassed Russell Armstrong's tragic suicide and fallout from Eddie Cibrian's ex-wife, Brandi Glanville, calling Kim a "meth addict."

"Once Andy [Cohen] brought up the fact Kim was absent because she was in rehab, Brandi immediately rolled her eyes. Things quickly escalated from there and Kim's sister, and fellow housewife, Kyle jumped once again to her sister's defense,” a show insider tells RadarOnline.com. “Brandi was basically telling everyone, ‘see, I told you so, I wasn't wrong, and I shouldn't have to apologize for pointing out that Kim is a junkie'. There was no love lost between Brandi and Kim this season, and Kyle was relieved that her sister, wasn't exposed to Brandi's venom.
"Brandi was out of control," the source continues. "She was swearing at the other women and being obnoxious."

Kim, who is Paris Hilton's aunt, is currently seeking outpatient treatment, and according to the source: "[She] is hoping she doesn't have to come back for season three. Kim has had enough of the antics of the show and all of the drama. Kyle would definitely come back for a third season though.”

Vicki Gunvalson Husband Donn Gunvalson

The long-beleaguered husband of Real Housewives of Orange County star Vicki Gunvalson, Donn Gunvalson, has been diagnosed with prostate cancer.

The news comes after an already tumultuous period for the Gunvalsons. After 16 years of marriage, Vicki filed for divorce from Donn in 2010. As viewers saw, he learned of her decision to divorce via a phone call after he discovered that she'd frozen their assets.

Vicki's son and Donn's step-son, Michael Wolfsmith, 26, told the National Enquirer that the Gunvalson household as experienced a series of "weird" events within the last year.

"It has sort of been weird around here for the past year or so," he said. "Donn has been very sick, Briana eloped to Las Vegas last fall, and my mom is dealing with a lot of different emotions. It's a very stressful time right now."

Vicki has since moved on to dating Brooks Ayers, who will appear on this season of The Real Housewives of Orange County. Brooks has had run-ins with the law, having previously been arrested for unpaid child support (ironic for Vicki, who spent most of last season calling out co-star Gretchen Rossi's boyfriend Slade Smiley for being a "deadbeat dad").

The Gunvalsons' divorce is not yet finalized, and according to the Enquirer report, things are getting a bit messy. A source claimed that Donn hired a forensic accountant to determine the value of Vicki's company. Vicki is also rumored to have started her relationship with Brooks while still married to Donn, which could also affect the outcome of the divorce.

Although Vicki has moved on, her son says she was still upset at her soon-to-be ex-husband's illness. Michael said, "My mom was upset when she told us. Since they are divorcing, we don't see Donn as much as we used to. But we still care about him and are pulling for him."

Vicki tweeted yesterday, "Thank you everyone for your well wishes for Donn. He is doing very good considering his diagnosis. PSA levels have dropped to almost normal."

Heather Dubrow Restaurant

Real Housewives of Orange County star Heather Dubrow submitted a post to OrangeCounty.com regretting her comment about the lack of quality restaurants in the OC area. And now she's even asking fans to prove her wrong.

Heather, with the help of all of her girlfriends who are all made of money, is planning on opening a restaurant in the area near her home. She said on the show, "There are no good restaurants in Orange County, that's why we are opening a restaurant."

"Yes, ok, I said that," she wrote on OrangeCounty.com. "A regrettable comment for sure. Didn't mean to hurt anyone in the industry. The truth is, if you haven't watched RHOC yet this season, I can be... well... picky."

She explains that her finickiness comes from all of the time she lived in New York, where you can't throw a stick without hitting at least two gourmet restaurants worthy of Miss Heather's caliber.

"I felt like my culinary experiences came to a grinding halt," she wrote. "That's not to say there aren't some places I love in the OC. The problem is, I find myself going to those same places over and over because I can't find anywhere else to go."

Although she admitted to regretting her comments, she also posed a challenge for other OC dwellers who may have taken offense to her comments.

"Instead of lambasting me about the comment I made on the show, dear readers, I challenge you to PROVE ME WRONG!" Heather wrote. "With YOUR help, I intend to seek out and review local restaurants in an attempt to find the little gems that we have here that I have not been introduced to. SHOW ME. Then, I will eat CROW... or pig's feet, tripe, sweetbreads or whatever it is the restaurant specializes in."

Brooks Ayers Job

What is Brooks Ayers’ net worth? Brooks Ayers’ net worth is $150 thousand dollars. Brooks Ayers has recently made headlines as the new boyfriend of “The Real Housewives of Orange County” cast member Vicki Gunvalson. Ms. Gunvalson has remarked that she does not think the burgeoning relationship will survive the media hailstorm that is surrounding it. Mr. Ayers was taken to court due to over $100,000 in back child support and was also arrested for a DUI in 2005. His monetary woes, coupled with his mug shot, have not made him popular with the reality show’s fans. In addition, there is some controversy regarding when Mr. Ayers and Ms. Gunvalson actually began their relationship, as some insiders claim that she may have been seeing him before her marriage to ex-husband Donn Gunvalson had officially ended. The two deny such claims, but the intense scrutiny of their relationship has continued unabated.

Brooks Ayers Child Support




Well… that was shocking wasn’t it? This Friday evening “20/20″ bestowed upon Brooks Ayers the honor of giving him his own segment on the popular news show. Even Slave Smiley hasn’t been that lucky!

Yep, in front of the whole nation, on a nationally syndicated immensely popular news show, Brooks was outed as a deadbeat dad by his ex-girlfriend Nicolette Catanzarite. How’d you like them apples? Or oranges, if you will. I say Karma is a bitch, and I love her for it!

I’m sure Bravo is beside themselves with glee over the news that Real Houewives of Orange County‘s stellar reputation has been besmirched by the allegations – and I am most positive Vicki Gunvalson‘s obsessive love for con-man Brooks will suddenly wilt. In fact I anticipate that very soon she’ll be issuing a statement about how they’ve grown apart, but she wishes him nothing but love.

And whaddya wanna bet Vicki‘s friendship with Tamra Barney will be rekindled, with a statement about how Tamra was good friend, just looking out for her.


In this instance, I have to say, Tamra was right to worry about Brooks. Although, I’m sure her “I told you so!” act is in full gloating swing.

With that said, let’s get to the nitty-gritty of Nicolette‘s allegations that he has never paid child support for their son, whom Brooks dubs his “extra child” and even stiffed her on the delivery bill. Winner!

“He has not supported his child,” Nicolette revealed. “He bailed on the hospital bill, the pediatrician bill, and left me with all of it.” Nicolette is the mother of Brooks‘ three-year-old son, a child Brooks has no relationship with. Nicolette, a 41-year-old hair salon owner met Brooks when he was separated from his wife, the mother of his other three children.

Brooks‘ ex-wife is the woman who had him arrested for not paying child support. He has a previous arrest for a DUI. “I met Brooks in 2007 in Atlanta on a golf trip and he just kind of was a Southern charmer without a doubt,” Nicolette recollects. “He just always said the right things at the right time.” A story, Vicki is no doubt very familiar with.

Nicolette even says Mr. Hallmark plied her with greeting cards day and night. Hallmark needs to start banning him – he should be spending his money on his kids instead. These cards are like his crack.

Much like he promised Vicki the world, Nicolette heard a familiar refrain. ”He did mention that he was going through a divorce and that he was legally separated and that he had three children,” she added. “It wasn’t appropriate that he would ask me to marry him while he was still married so he gave me a promise ring.”

Nicolette shares that Brooks seemed so upfront about his past and his life, that she didn’t think he was hiding anything. “I just believed everything that he said. I bought it hook, line and sinker,” she admits.
He also told her had a vasectomy – another story she believed whole-heartedly. Until she got pregnant! ”I was like, this is gonna be the best kid in the world,” Nicolette recalls, believing she would be with Brooks forever. “I just couldn’t wait to have him and really always thought that this was such a blessing.”
Sadly, shortly after their son’s birth, the affirmation cards dried up – and so did Brooks‘ interest! ”Within two or three weeks I started seeing kind of a different behavior from him,” Nicolette remembers. “He was obsessive, angry, moody and controlling with me. It was very strange.” Their relationship quickly dissipated.

Nicolette says she started noticing his many lies, claiming he even lied about having nose cancer! LOL! (Sorry – I couldn’t resist. What a fraud!) And that he started to bail on his financial obligations.
“Our electric bill was getting shut off, my phone was getting shut off and I didn’t know he hadn’t been paying the rent on the house,” Nicolette says. “He would always make up excuses and say the judge has held the escrow account and they’ve locked all their funds until the divorce was final.”
And then Brooks just disappeared – leaving only a PO Box number – and hasn’t been seen or heard from since. Until her friends spotted him on the arm of Vicki flaunting their relationship on RHOC.
Nicolette has been trying to obtain child support from Brooks for years and in 2010 sued him over the matter. They later agreed Brooks would provide $700 per month and become current on his arrears of more than $2,500. Nicolette reveals she has seen little of that money. And she was shocked to see Vicki him splashing out for new veneers and a mink coat on TV.

After Brooks gave a recent interview to “Ask Dan and Mike,” claiming: “I am happy to tell you that we got everything current. I never walked away from my kids. I speak to my kids every day.” He then referred to their son as his “extra child,” Nicolette was compelled to speak out.

“He’s a manipulator, he’s a liar, he’s a con, he’ll do or say anything to anybody, anytime, anywhere, to get what he wants,” Nicolette seethed, adding that he know owes thousands of dollars to her and has not made any effort to make good on those obligations.

Well, he sounds like a real catch. Good thing Vicki snapped him up before anyone else got him. Actually – it is good. She can afford him, she’s no longer of babymaking age, and she’s keeping him off the streets before other women can be bamboozled. Here’s to seeing Brooks rack up another mugshot. And the excuses that are soon to follow.

As for Brooks he has yet to comment on the story – and refused any of 20/20′s questions – but he did add fuel to Nicolette‘s case by tweeting: “I paid for my teeth and the fur with my own money. Have a great night and thanks for watching us!” 

Alexis Bellino Fox 5

Well, well… the blondes of Real Housewives of Orange County are separating faster than tanning oil and water—and the blow-ups are about to get bigger than Alexis Bellino‘s twins. The pair always exploding out of her blouses!

Last week the writing was on the wall (can these ladies read?) for Alexis and former BFFL Gretchen Rossi when Gretch not only insulted one of Lex’s part-time careers—the newscastering one—but she claimed Alexis was the producers second choice. And who was the first choice? None other than Gretchen, herself! Some girls have all the luck – she’s part of a world renowned dance troupe, she’s dating Slave Slimey, and Fox5 thinks she’s news worthy! #jealous
Upon learning that she was Gretch’s sloppy seconds, Alexis was hurt, and offended. Hey, who wouldn’t be? I mean they are supposed to be friends, right? So Lex decided to do what all good newscasters do—a little investigative journalism! “The minute Gretchen left my home I called my Fox Five producer to confirm if this was true, and she said it was absolutely not true,” Alexis reports in her Bravo Blog. “They were only asking Gretchen to do one segment as a co-host with me, and had no plans ever of giving Gretchen her own correspondent position.”


And because she’s, like, a way, way better friend Alexis insists she would never tell somebody they were her sloppy seconds. This ‘everybody’s left-overs’ is sort of a thing with her, isn’t it? First, Peggy Tanous, now Gretch! “I have had similar things happen where I have been asked to host an appearance and I had to say no because I was already booked, then Gretchen would end up doing it and I never once felt I should call her and tell her that. What for? What good does it do? It’s a slap in the face, and not very supportive.”

“It was like Gretchen had to say that to make herself feel better because she couldn’t be truly happy for my success,” Alexis continues. “The truth is, I have felt a disconnect with Gretchen that started months ago.”

And apparently, this is one friendship that will not survive the season! Fairweather, indeed! “The saddest part is that it only gets worse throughout the upcoming episodes,” Alexis reveals. “In an upcoming episode, something occurs between Gretchen and I that absolutely crushes me, and I know you will all see the true colors of all the women by the end of the season. There is an accumulation of several things that are very eye opening.”

Of course, since this is Housewives and no one has heard of a phone that does not operate on speaker whilst cameras are rolling, Gretchen is responding in her own Bravo blog. She claims that, of course, she would never lie! Like, she’s the most honest person ever and Alexis is full of silicone baloney!
“It’s true that I got offered the same job and wasn’t able to do it because I had too much going on at the time,” Gretchen protests. “For her to challenge that and say I am lying is ridiculous. What good reason would I have to lie about that? I guess I should have brought the e-mails to prove it to her.”
“It’s funny to me that she would accuse me of lying about that when after all she is the one that was lying about being a news anchor!” Ouch! And really, lying and these two… Botox meet Restylane!
Gretchen continues:

“The harsh truth is that I found myself in an awkward situation because they continued to ask if I still had interest in the job after they had already hired her. They can deny it all they want to Alexis. It makes sense that they would, because why would they burn that bridge in case they couldn’t find anyone else, but unfortunately that is the truth.
I felt bad I knew this and wanted to find a nice way to let my friend know because I thought it sucked for her. I knew I needed to be honest with her and was looking for the right time to tell her.
I believed I was being a good friend by not reconsidering taking the job and trying to find a way to kindly tell her what was going on. Unfortunately lesson learned with her and next time I will just blurt it out that they alluded they weren’t happy with her performance at the time, so that way I am not accused of trying to steal her thunder or not being happy for her.”

Um… wow. So I’m guessing these two have had a major falling out. Something tells me Tamra Barney isn’t completely to blame!

Gretchen echos: “As this season unfolds, you will start to see her take heat for being fake and phony and not telling the truth even when necessary at times.” Does anyone think the real reason Gretch is so spiteful is because Alexis Couture is selling better than Gretchen Christine? I joke, I joke – I know neither of those “fashion lines” are flying off the shelves!

Lisa Vanderpump Biography


 From her official website:

Lisa Vanderpump (Right)


Thank you for visiting my site, my name is Lisa but those closest call me Pinky. I have been married for 28 years to my husband Ken Todd, I was snatched from the cradle! We have two children, Pandora 24 and Max 18. Unfortunately for me as I’ve really adored being a mother, my children have grown so I’ve filled my nest with 4 legged furry friends. They are the loves of my life. Jiggy (Gigolo), Lollipop, Pikachu, and Buki make our nest complete.

As you know I am on the show The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, this is my first reality show but not my first venture into television. It was quite an experience I can’t tell you too much, but tune in I’m sure you won’t be disappointed!

I had an unusual childhood attending a drama school full time from the age of nine! I loved acting in many children’s films and television series when I was growing up. We have lived in London, the English Countryside, South of France, and came back to Beverly Hills 6 years ago. I have great passion for life and I have tried to instill that in my children.

Since returning to the US, I’ve been working in many different arenas. I have opened 2 very successful restaurants with my husband Ken; Villa Blanca in Beverly Hills and SUR in West Hollywood. I have designed all our 26 restaurants, bars, and clubs with my husband over the years and have really enjoyed doing so. My motto in life is find something that you love to do and then you won’t have to work a day in your life. I also write for Beverly Hills Lifestyle Magazine and spend a lot of time at Epione, where I have developed a serious skin care line with my partner Dr. Simon Ourian.

Most of my clothes are designed by myself in conjunction with my dear friend Christina Makowsky and Alan Del Rosario.

My husband and I are philanthropic and support various charities.
