Reality Queens: Five Favorite 'Real Housewives'

May 23rd, 2011 3:00pm EDT
Bethenny Frankel
My idea of a perfect Sunday afternoon is diving on the couch and into a marathon of high-brow hijinks provided by my favorite guilty pleasure reality show, “The Real Housewives.” For five years, the mad scientists at Bravo have provided us with caviar and crazy, Fendi and frenemies with the Housewives franchise, which follows the glamorous and scandalous lives of rich wives in the country’s biggest and trendiest locales such as Orange County, Calif., Atlanta, Ga., and New Jersey.

On May 16, Bravo’s premiere of the third season of “The Real Housewives of New Jersey” brought in a record-br...

Forbes has crowned Lady Gaga as the queen of all celebrities, in a year where major contender Oprah Winfrey started her own network and announced a grand finale to her television show.

Lady Gaga went up four spots from last year's position, thanks to a $90 million Monster Ball tour, 32 million Facebook fans, and being the first person in the world to have 10 million Twitter followers.

Katie Price Uses Her Body To Sell Her New Boob - Er, Book (With Video)

July 29th, 2010 9:50am EDT
Katie Price
Katie Price looked like a wax figure while promoting her new novel "Paradise" in London on Wednesday. We're guessing the book is fiction, like her body. She's been nipped and tucked so much we can't tell where the real starts and the fake ends.

Oh, and did we mention anyone can write a book these days? And who does a book launch in a black leotard with the novel's title splashed across their heaving bosom?

The model recently courted controversy by saying children of divorced parents are "lucky." After all, her mom and dad split when she was little - and she turned out fabulous, right?

Pamela Anderson's 'Sexist' New PETA Ad (Video)

July 15th, 2010 3:19pm EDT
Pamela Anderson PETA Ad
Pamela Anderson flew into Montréal, all set to unveil her new vegetarian campaign for PETA today, only to be denied a permit for the event at the last minute by city officials who are claiming that her ad is sexist.

Says Anderson, "In a city that is known for its exotic dancing and for being progressive and edgy, how sad that a woman would be banned from using her own body in a political protest over the suffering of cows and chickens. In some parts of the world, women are forced to cover their whole bodies with burqas-is that next? I didn't think that Canada would be so puritanical."

June 11th, 2010 8:26pm EDT
Bethenny Getting Married
After watching Part 1 of The Real Housewives of NYC frightfest/reunion show, I was in desperate need of a light palette cleanser before turning in for the evening. Despite the instinct to run as far away from Bravo as possible, I didn’t change the channel and was pleasantly surprised when “Housewife” Bethenny Frankel’s spin-off, “Bethenny Getting Married?” turned out to be a perfect antidote to the uncomfortable mess that preceded it.

On RHONY, Bethenny proved that she was perfectly suited for reality TV. She’s in on the joke but not playing a part; self aware but not infallible. Like Carr...
