    BRIELLE BIERMANN (On RHOA, Don't Be Tardy, Mom Kim Zolciak, Her Love Life & What's Next!) - I

    BRIELLE BIERMANN (On RHOA, Don't Be Tardy, Mom Kim Zolciak, Her Love Life & What's Next!) - I

    Brielle Biermann steps Behind The Rope. In true Brielle form, nothing is off limits or held back! Brielle starts at the beginning discussing what it was like to grow up on Bravo having first appeared on The Real Housewives of Atlanta at age ten. Brielle reminisces about her time on RHOA - best/worst/viral moments, and all that drama that she witnessed between all our fav peach holders, including Mom Kim Zolciak-Biermann. Brielle discusses her much talked about relationship with Mom Kim Zolciak-Biermann - the public’s obsession with it, judgment of it, and truth behind what having a Mom like Kim is really like. Of course, we learned more about that relationship during the first ever RHOA spinoff “Don’t Be Tardy”. Brielle chats about that eight year journey working with her whole fam including “Dad” NFL Superstar Kroy Biermann. Brielle explains how she handles her online “trolls” who judge her every move and chats about the constant scrutiny she receives regarding what plastic surgery she has and has not had, a topic which recently came up during her WWHL “Bravo Kids” appearance. Brielle breaks down which Bravo children she is friends with, what Bravolebs have slid into her DM’s throughout the years (the answer has left our mouths agape!), and who she would still love to meet in the BravoVerse. Brielle opens up about her love life, type, and current status. We chat the end of Don’t Be Tardy, whether Kim should or would return to RHOA, and what is next for her.

    Kim D. (on Kathy/Kyle/Rinna, EJ's Therapy, The Return of RHOSLC & Teresa's DWTS Exit!)

    Kim D. (on Kathy/Kyle/Rinna, EJ's Therapy, The Return of RHOSLC & Teresa's DWTS Exit!)

    The RHOBH episode we have waited for all season has finally arrived. Kyle and Kathy face off and then, oh yea, there is Rinna. Kim D. is here to break it all down - sisters gone awry, the involvement of Rinna, rumored deleted scenes, Erika Jayne in therapy and bonding with Sutton, Garcelle MIA busy at work and Crystal explaining the “shame”, according to her, behind MJ’s “Billie Jean”. Kim is also here to chat about the return of RHOSLC - a clueless Jen Shah, the breakup of Meredith and Lisa, the alliance of Whitney and Lisa and ever present comedic timing of one Miss Heather Gay. Finally, as Kim has predicted, she chats about the early exit of Tre from DWTS - her dancing, Aydin and Cabral and of course, the comment that Len Goodman just does not like our New Jersey Housewife. All this and more!

    The Future of RHOBH's Fox Force Four, RHOA Cast Returns, Secrets from Vanderpump Rules Filming Revealed & BravoCon Expectations

    The Future of RHOBH's Fox Force Four, RHOA Cast Returns, Secrets from Vanderpump Rules Filming Revealed & BravoCon Expectations

    Kandi Burruss and the entire cast of The Real Housewives of Atlanta have been asked back for Season 15 making Kandi the longest running housewife in the BravoVerse holding the title for fourteen consecutive seasons. Sorry Ramona and Vicki, you came close but the record is held by Ms. Burruss! In RHOBH land, we explain why Dorit Kemsley may have recently saved her Diamond for next season and whether a Garcelle / Sutton / Crystal truce with Erika / Kyle / Rinna could happen next season due to many factors. As the new season of Vanderpump Rules continues to film, we share shocking Raquel / Tom Schwartz gossip that you will not believe and, no, it is not the several week old story of them “hooking up”. All this plus more secrets behind the scenes of VPR and what everyone who is attending BravoCon in three weeks can expect once they descend upon New York City!

    Lisa Rinna's RHOBH Future & BravoCon Absence, Donnie Wahlberg's Response To Our RHOBH Jenny McCarthy Claims & Running Into Ramona Singer!

    Lisa Rinna's RHOBH Future & BravoCon Absence, Donnie Wahlberg's Response To Our RHOBH Jenny McCarthy Claims & Running Into Ramona Singer!

    Lisa Rinna. Will she or won’t she stay has been the topic of many conversations over the past season of RHOBH. Today we share our ever changing opinion as the season comes to a close and we head into reunion. We mentioned Jenny McCarthy as a possible Rinna replacement the other week, if Rinna goes, and today we share Donnie Wahlberg’s response to our prediction. Things are not always what they seem people. Speaking of Rinna, we deep dive the real reasons she will not be at BravoCon, what it means and where we go from here. Finally, we talk “running into” Ramona Singer this week in The Hamptons. Where do we even begin?

    Attorney Emily D. Baker (Shares Update on Erika Jayne's Legal Drama, Potential RHOBH Cast / Bravo Exposure & Her Future on Housewives)!

    Attorney Emily D. Baker (Shares Update on Erika Jayne's Legal Drama, Potential RHOBH Cast / Bravo Exposure & Her Future on Housewives)!

    Emily D. Baker steps back Behind The Rope. So much has been written, discussed, hypothesized and analyzed about the legal cases of Real Housewives’ Erika Jayne and Jen Shah. Even with our legal degree we find it daunting, at best, to make sense of it all so we can only imagine how y’all feel. As a result, we did the only thing we could think of doing. Call in our fav legal commentator, and former LA Deputy District Attorney, Emily D. Baker to help make sense of it all. Emily breaks down Erika’s recent $50M Racketeering Lawsuit, the shocking new claims against Miss Jayne, being served at LAX after a vacay with Rinna and Diana Jenkins, those $1.4M earrings that just wont seem to go away and what this means for her future on RHOBH. Emily also breaks down Jen Shah’s recent guilty plea in her criminal fraud case, why she plead guilty, what we can expect from sentencing, her, Andy Cohen, the RHOSLC cast and public’s reaction to Jen’s guilty plea and what this means for her, her family and RHOSLC’s future. Finally, we chat other current cases, Bravo events, and this season of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. As always Ms. Baker, thanks for helping make sense of it all!

The BEST Housewives Podcast

I’ve been listening to David’s podcast since the beginning, and I can attest to the fact that this podcast spills the most tea. It’s evident how much work David puts into the podcast. It’s his passion, and not just a hobby!

The guests are great. Interviewing is a developed skill, and David has a natural talent. He has the ability to go beyond the surface and make the guest feel as though they are the most important person in the room. His effort translates into every episode.

Kim D is my absolute favorite, and I finally subscribed to Patreon to hear the full length episodes - absolutely no regrets! Outside of the podcast, it’s obvious they are friends. They have a natural chemistry which delivers delightfully petty content. Often, I find myself laughing out loud during their conversations. I feel as though I am gossiping about the housewives with friends.

The podcast’s name, “Behind the Velvet Rope” delivers across all factors that comprise a fantastic podcast. You truly feel as though you are stepping behind the velvet rope.

On Fire

The tea is real and the chemistry is scorching hot between you and Emily D. Baker. Two of my favorite You Tube Pages collide!

The Real Deal

Allison Dubois. One of your best interviews. I've never seen anyone really address these women's true characters. I once again realize I'm addicted to emptiness.
