The season 2 premiere of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, sent to media outlets well before news of Russell Armstrong’s tragic suicide, documented a couple trying to rebuild a fragile marriage that was put in the spotlight during the show’s first season. It’s a somewhat jarring episode to watch, in light of not only today’s news, but Taylor’s claims to People earlier this month that Russell allegedly abused her physically and emotionally. (He denied some of the abuse charges.) Read on to learn what happened in the premiere. (SPOILER ALERT for those who wish not to know.) READ FULL STORY

Five people are suing Teresa Giudice and the Real Housewives of New Jersey, its production company, Bravo, and the Hard Rock Hotel after a February party in the Dominican Republic turned ugly, according to People. The group filed a suit in New York State Supreme Court, alleging that Giudice herself popped a champagne cork that injured one of the plaintiff’s mother-in-law, and the Housewives star then mocked the injured party. At that point, the plaintiffs allege, men from the show’s cast, including Joe Giudice, Albert Manzo, Albie Manzo, and Christopher Manzo attacked the plaintiffs “without provocation.”
A spokesperson for the Real Housewives declined to comment.
Bravo has set a premiere date for arguably the most popular edition of its Real Housewives franchise. The third season of the New Jersey edition will debut on Monday, May 16 at 9 p.m., with an extended 90-minute premiere episode.
The scheduling comes on the heels of Bravo canceling a Housewives for the first time, axing the D.C. edition. The network also revealed dates for new reality shows Million Dollar Decorators (May 31) and Rocco’s Dinner Party (June 15). Here’s a sneak peak trailer for RHONJ season 3 (but, fair warning, if you’re unlucky in the Bravo video player sponsor-message roulette, you might first have to watch a rather awful ad for Poise adult diapers).

Bravo is taking its always unpredictable and often chaotic Real Housewives reunion show to the next level: A live telecast.
For next month’s Real Housewives of Miami reunion special hosted by Andy Cohen, Bravo will run the special live on the East Coast.
The Housewives reunion special has become the Mad Max Thunderdome of Bravo — Have a dispute? Housewives in conflict? Save it for the reunion! You remember last year the Housewives of New Jersey got into a headline-making red-faced brawl, then the ladies of Beverly Hills weren’t exactly civil during their reunion in January.
Watch What Happens: Live Miami Housewives Reunion will air on April 5 at 9 p.m. ET. (with a seven-second bleep delay, of course).
EW obtained this clip of tonight’s season two return. For the uninitiated, the skits features Fallon and others in drag, as they play fictional wives of show staffers. READ FULL STORY
rumors about who’ll be on the still yet-to-be-greenlit second season of Bravo’s Real Housewives of Beverly Hills continue to swirl. In the latest twist, the Spencer Pratt half of reality-show duo Speidi (the other half, of course, is Hills alum Heidi Montag) reportedly said that he and his sometimes-estranged wife are in talks with the minds behind Beverly Hills. “We would move to Beverly Hills in a heartbeat,” Pratt told Radar. “We would be psyched if this happened for us.” READ FULL STORYThe
'Real Housewives of Beverly Hills' scoop: Sylvester Stallone's wife and Eddie Cibrian's ex in talks to join cast -- EXCLUSIVE
two-part reunions in the franchise’s history, another season seems all but a sure thing.Andy Cohen might have to add another couch to the set of next season’s Real Housewives of Beverly Hills reunion — the network is apparently in talks with several other ladies about potentially joining the show’s buzzy cast. Specifically, EW has learned that both Eddie Cibrian’s ex Brandi Glanville (yes, the one who was famously spurned by Cibrian for his now-fiancé, country singer LeAnn Rimes) and Sylvester Stallone’s wife, Jennifer Flavin (above, right), have been in discussions with Bravo about appearing on the snake pit of a show when it returns for a second season. The buzz is that Stallone isn’t pleased with his wife entertaining the idea, likely because of his high profile. (Considering everything that happened with Kelsey Grammer’s wife, Camille, being on the show, maybe that’s not such a crazy idea from Sly?) Officially, Bravo has no comment on the casting rumors, and the network has yet to officially greenlight a second season. But considering that the series regularly drew 3 to 4 million viewers for every episode and had one of the most enrapturing
