    Gorga Housewarming Party Guest Spills The Tea on the Fights, Drama & More From This Event!

    Gorga Housewarming Party Guest Spills The Tea on the Fights, Drama & More From This Event!

    The Gorgas had a housewarming party. We have been contacted from someone who attended this epic, filmed for RHONJ, event. Of course, we were all ears as this insider spilled the tea. We detail all from an apparent fight between Jackie and Margaret, Teresa’s Housewarming gift, a drunk Joe Gorga, production’s involvement and breaking of the fourth wall, Danielle Cabral’s tiff with Marge and newfound alliance with Mel, which House Husband returned later that night to party the night away and much, much, much more. Next, if you have not heard - we kid, we kid - Shannon Beador has been arrested for DUI and hit-and-run. We break down the events which led up to that car crash and arrest, what happened after, all the various Housewives, Bravolebs and Andy Cohen Statements regarding the matter and what this means for Shannon’s RHOC future. Finally, Bethenny Frankel is not having a great week and seems to not care as we ask, what is really going on with this RHONY OG?

    Shannon Beador's DUI/ Hit & Run - What Really Happened, Bethenny vs. Carole & Tom / Raquel Update

    Shannon Beador's DUI/ Hit & Run - What Really Happened, Bethenny vs. Carole & Tom / Raquel Update

    Tom & Raquel are at it again! We break down their recent he said, she said, social media spat, comments and one official name change from Raquel to Rachel. In other news, Bethenny is feuding with Carole Radziwill, again, giving makeup tutorials and forging ahead with her Reality Reckoning. Or is she? We check in on Bethenny and ask, once again, brilliant genius or … and just what is up with the Reality Reckoning? Not to bury the lead but Shannon Beador just crashed her car into a house, kept driving and has been arrested for DUI and Hit and Run. We deep dive Shannon’s accident earlier this week, her behavior over the past season of RHOC, her potential issues with alcohol, her cry for help and what happens now. On a happier note, we share some news regarding Miss Victoria Gunvalson. Wow, what a week, What an episode.

    Carl & Lindsay (What Really Happened), Tom Slams Raquel, Kyle & Morgan Vacay & PDA and Tom Girardi's Competency

    Carl & Lindsay (What Really Happened), Tom Slams Raquel, Kyle & Morgan Vacay & PDA and Tom Girardi's Competency

    What is going on in 2023? We have had more BravoVerse breakups this year than any other year that we cannot help but ask, what the F is going on. This will sure make for one interesting Bravo Con this November. Speaking of breakups, we analyze Carl and Lindsay’s competing official statements, break down what really happened between them and what we can expect to see revealed, as Craig Conover promises, next season on Summer House. Speaking of next season, we discuss what we will see revealed between Kyle and Mauricio next season on RHOBH, analyze Kyle’s French getaway with Morgan and urge Kyle and Morgan to officially announce this budding romance which also seems to be good for the press. Dancing With The Stars anyone? Finally, we deep dive Tom Girardi’s recent court hearing, explain why Erika is MIA, discuss Teddi Mellencamp’s involvement and analyze whether Tom is really competent or not.

    MARIO LOPEZ (on Saved By The Bell, Cast Mates, DWTS, Oprah & The 90s)

    MARIO LOPEZ (on Saved By The Bell, Cast Mates, DWTS, Oprah & The 90s)

    Mario Lopez steps Behind The Rope. One of the most beloved names in Pop Culture TV history is here to mention it all. Mario chats about his Iconic break out role as A.C. Slater in Saved By The Bell and what it is like all these decades later to still be tied to the role and show that started it all. Mario opens up about reprising that role in the SBTB Reboot, co-stars Elizabeth Berkley, Tiffani Thiessen and Mark-Paul Gosselaar and whether we are done with the show or can expect to see it back in some form in the future. Mario also chats DWTS, Reality TV, Pop Culture, his day job on Access Hollywood and all the mega celebs he has interviewed throughout the years. Finally Mario talks fatherhood, married life in Hollywood and much more. Thank you Mr. Lopez for, as we say, mentioning it all.

    Vanderpump Rules Finale Fall Out, Carl & Lindsay Questioned, Ariana & Tom's On Screen Future & Bad News For Jax

    Vanderpump Rules Finale Fall Out, Carl & Lindsay Questioned, Ariana & Tom's On Screen Future & Bad News For Jax

    With chairs being thrown, make ups, break ups and a stellar performance that is good as gold, we figured it time to break down all of the gossip that has surfaced from the Vanderpump Rules Season Eleven Finale and then some. What really happened? Let’s discuss. Moving on, we share an update on Carl & Lindsay’s break up, address the rumors of an “other woman” who was almost a baby mama and question the validity of all of this. Did someone say $candoval 2.0? Next we share an update on Bethenny’s “Reality Reckoning”, break down her next move and share which Bravolebs are not at all happy with Ms. Frankel these days. Also, seems like Jax Taylor got some recent bad news and things may never be the same again. Finally, we have a little chat with our co-host based on her tell all exposé on us and discuss where we go from here!

    MARK GERAGOS - BETHENNY FRANKEL'S Reality Reckoning Attorney (Separates Fact From Fiction & Shares Status Update)

    MARK GERAGOS - BETHENNY FRANKEL'S Reality Reckoning Attorney (Separates Fact From Fiction & Shares Status Update)

    Bethenny Frankel’s “Reality Reckoning” Attorney Mark Geragos steps Behind The Rope. The man, the myth, the legend! As you know, Bethenny Frankel has started a Reality Reckoning. So much has been written, discussed, blogged about and hypothesized regarding Bethenny’s motivation, goals, and claims. Rather than speculate like the others, we figured we would go right to the source, Mr. Mark Garagos, who, along with fellow super attorney Bryan Freedman, have already spent countess hours hearing countless stories from Bravolebrities past and present regarding wages, contracts, working conditions, alleged false imprisonment, alleged forced alcohol, alleged revenge porn and much, much more. Mark helps make sense of the stories, claims and goals as we touch upon subjects such as Andy Cohen, Bethenny’s interview with Raquel Leviss, Raquel’s sexually explicit video, Bravo NDA’s, Real Housewives from every franchise and just what happens next in Miss Bethenny Frankel’s “Reality Reckoning” which is a force of nature that does not seem to be slowing down any time soon!!!

Best Insider Scoop for all things Bravo

David has the best stories about his close encounters with my favorite Bravolebrities. This podcast is probably the only one where a lot of Bravo folks are willing to open up and give us some much needed inside scoop.

JustPonti ,

Quintessential supplement to any Housewives fan!

Reveals a lot more backstory and behind the scenes stuff with the housewives and friends of the show! 👍🏼👍🏼
