Two years after the debut of the series, Bravo cashed in by adding another branch of the series, The Real Housewives of New York City, which made a star of series regular Bethenny Frankel, a former natural foods chef who has since gone on to release numerous best-selling books, create a cocktail company (which she then ...

When the current baktun of the Mayan calendar comes to a close on December 21, 2012, many prophecies say the world will end.

Mind you, this prophecy comes from a race of people who couldn't predict their own civilization's end, so how credible are they in predicting the end of the world in our time?

The sun will rise and life will probably go on as usual tomorrow, but for now we've come up with a list of celebrities that -- if the world does end -- you won't miss.

'The Real Housewives Of Orange County' Season 7

;
The original Real Housewives series is back! The Real Housewives of Orange County is sure to be packed with drama this season!

It seems as though there have been many changes since we last left Orange County. Tamra Barney has downsized- not only her home but her boobies as well! Tamra told E!, "It's been one of the best things I have ever done in my life. I feel a lot more confident without my implants. [With my implants] I felt like [my chest] was the first thing everybody looked at."

Also, Tamra and co-star Gretchen Rossi seem to have put the past behind them! "It was time to build a b...

Real Housewives of Orange County star, Alexis Bellino, hit Hollywood hotspot, The Sayers Club last night for the launch party of Verizon’s new phone: Revolution by LG and we caught the starlet acting a bit too diva-licious! Arriving in a brand-new white Bentley, Alexis refused to open her own car door, saying she didn’t want to chip her “freshly painted nails." Talk about high maintenance.

Brandi Glanville, the newest member of Bravo's Real Housewives of Orange County, showed some sexy curves last week in a thin white coverup with her hot pink bikini peeking though while shopping at Cross Creek Center in Malibu, California. The star also had lunch with a friend at Taverna Tony.

Brandi recently replaced Kelsey Grammer's ex-wife Camille on Housewives, and like Camille she herself went through a crazy divorce - her ex-husband, actor Eddie Cibrian, left her for singer LeAnn Rimes.

Last weekend, the world of reality television came together to celebrate everything that is reality television. I must say that we just lost a few more brain cells because of the launch of Reality Rocks Expo. It just shows us that enough people like reality television enough that they would agree to pay $35 dollars to go see their favorite reality performer. I refuse to call them stars because in full reality, they have not done anything to get the star treatment that they are.

It’s not like sleeping with as many women or men in a big house rigged with lots of cameras is going to m...

The “Real Housewives” franchise on Bravo is one of the hottest pop culture staples today, attracting millions of viewers each week.

Reality star Bethenny Frankel opens up in this week's issue of PEOPLE about how she survived a painful childhood scarred by addiction, abuse, and neglect, and found joy as the wife of sales executive Jason Hoppy, 38, and as mother to their baby girl Bryn. "I never had a true childhood," the 39-year-old star of "Bethenny Getting Married?" tells PEOPLE. "There was a lot of destruction: alcohol abuse, eating disorders and violent fights," she says.

The only child of legendary horse trainer Bobby Frankel and his first wife, Bernadette, Bethenny was 4 years old when her father walked out, le...

Earlier this week "Real Housewives of New York City" star Bethenny Frankel made a guest appearance on CBS's "Early Show" to prepare some seasonal cocktails.

The formally trained chef showed viewers how to make healthy summer cocktails that are lower in calorie content than the traditional recipes. She must be following her own advice - we think she looks fantastic in her strapless red dress, especially considering she gave birth to baby Bryn merely two months ago!

What is your secret to keeping so thin, Bethenny?

"Real Housewives" star Kelly Killoren Bensimon showed up at the "Brooklyn's Finest" New York City premiere yesterday wearing do-me stockings that make us think she's a little bit naughty!

The reality star made headlines last year after being arrested for assaulting her boyfriend Nicholas Stefanov. He complained that Kelly hit him with a closed fist, giving him a cut under his left eye and causing considerable pain.

Kelly has modeled in magazines such as ELLE, Cosmopolitan, and Harper's Bazaar, and she is on the cover of Playboy this month. She appeared on Bravo's second season of "The Rea...

Welcome back reality fans! After a week off week off we get back to "reality" and this week included the season finale of The Hills (boo!) and we are inching closer to the finales of "Million Dollar Listing" and "The Ruins."

Monday on the penultimate episode of "Million Dollar Listing" (9PM CST Bravo) Chad starts to fight with his longtime GF about spending quality time with each other and it sets up for a nice big dramatic break up for next week. Can't wait! Love when couples fight on TV.

I have been waiting for these two to break up for a while and I have no idea why Victoria is w...

Reality TV Roundup: Jeana Leaves 'Housewives,' Typical 'Hills' Drama & More

America
This week in reality TV featured one of the wildest RR/RW Challenge episodes of all time, a champion was crowned on this season's America's Next Top Model, and Jeana leaves The Real Housewives of Orange County.

Million Dollar Listing (Monday Bravo 9PM CST) has gone nowhere this season. I used to be a fan of these drama queens but there really has not been much drama between Chad, Madison, and Josh.

They all dislike each other so much that they stay away from each other, which makes for dull reality TV. These producers should know by now, drama creates viewership and there is very li...

Remote Control Battle: TV Both Men And Women May Enjoy Together

November 16th, 2009 9:00pm EST
Remote Control Battle
A Woman's Perspective: Remember when sitcoms used to make jokes about how men and women watch television differently? The sloppy, somewhat aloof husband character would always be zooming through the channels, flicking the remote faster than his perky, pretty, younger wife could keep up. She'd then snatch the remote and pause on each channel achingly slowly, narrating not only what was occurring in the scene on screen but also what she hoped or thought would occur next.

Not only did men and women watch differently, though, what they watched was always assumed to be different. Men had the...

This week in reality TV: Things heat up on The Real Housewives of Orange County, two models were sent home on America's Next Top Model, and on Top Chef an incompetent chef was finally told to pack his knives.

Let's get right into it and start out with some fireworks.

Tamra and Gretchen ended last week's "Real Housewives" (9PM CST Thursday Bravo) calling each other name's and it continued into this week. Tamra continued to lay into Gretchen, calling her a "filthy nasty whore" and a gold-digger.

Wow, Tamra was hot and I think her stress level at home is making her go crazy. Why woul...

With the Real Housewives of OC returning, The Hills heating up, and the Ruins coming down to the end this was a solid week of reality TV.

Boy did The Hills (9PM CST MTV Tuesday) heat up. While walking on the beach with Kristin we find out Jayde and Brody are "on a break" which makes me so mad at my man Brody. Why would anyone break up with Jayde, she is a cool girl and one of the best-looking girls in the world? And like Lo said, "He will never get another Playboy Bunny."

Brody needs to stay away from Kristin because she wants to steal him from Jayde and if you ask me, Kristin has ma...

Reality TV Roundup: Stephanie Pratt Leaving Hills And Lots More Drama

Sorry about the delay readers but here is the quickest recap from last week's debauchery in reality TV.

First let's start with the premiere week on MTV featuring the Real World Road Rules Challenge: The Ruins. For the first time in two seasons nobody was kicked off the first episode for fighting! An accomplishment reached because fan favorite C.T. is not on this season's cast and although I think it is silly he is not on the cast, I am sure they begged him to be on the show.

Top 5 Dramatic Moments of Bravo's 'The Real Housewives'

The Real Housewives of New York City
Though the current season of The Real Housewives of New York City (Bravo, Tuesdays at 10) is winding down, in just about three weeks the franchise will pick back up again with a brand new installment: The Real Housewives of New Jersey. "The Real Housewives" series appears to set the bar just a little higher each season - and each incarnation - when it comes to "charity," claws, and verbal altercations.

In honor of this third spin-off (the "original" was Orange County, fan favorite Atlanta recently wrapped its second season and is due back on air after Jersey finishes), check out the b...

The Dramatic Real Lives Of NYC's 'Housewives'

The Real Housewives of New York City
Has anyone been following this season of Bravo's The Real Housewives of New York City? It captures the lives of several housewives and is always full of great drama. This season, however, the reality that we are seeing on the show isn't half as amusing as the real lives the ladies are leading.

Kelly Bensimon, the newest cast member and ex-wife of photographer Gilles Bensimon, is headed to court to face a misdemeanor assault charge brought on by her ex boy-toy. She does have ridiculous arm muscles, so we wouldn't put it past her to have the ability to give a guy a black eye.
