“Real Housewives of NYC” star Kelly Bensimon wore a sheer black dress to the CFDA Fashion Awards in New York City yesterday. What do you think of her look?
The ‘Real Housewives of Orange County’s’ most annoying housewife ever, Alexis Bellino is opening her mouth to talk about her past struggles with eating disorders.
“I just didn’t want to eat,” Alexis remembers when the problem first arose, being 12-years-old and shattered by her parents’ divorce. “Looking back, I think it was my way of controlling something at a time when everything else in my life was out of my control.”
Six years later, during her freshman year at the University of Missouri- Columbia, the disorder truly sank its claws into her. “I felt so heavy,” Alexis admits, saying she became bulimic, throwing up her food on a regular basis. It wasn’t until the collapse of her first marriage in 2002 that Alexis finally decided to get help and worked closely with a doctor to stop purging. In 2005, she married her second husband, Jim Bellino who “finally got me to stop counting calories,” Alexis tells Life & Style. “He loves my body. In fact, he says he likes me about 5 pounds heavier.”
Her weight now fluctuates between 118 and 122 pounds — but she watches it like a hawk. “It’s not like I’m healed,” she says. “This haunts me.” A typical day’s meal plan for her is less than 900 calories. “Sweets are my weakness,” she says. “I’ll serve everyone else dessert, but I’ll pour salt and pepper all over mine so I don’t eat it.”
“I try not to let my weight consume me, but an eating disorder is a lifetime disease,” she tells Life & Style. “It cannot be cured, but it doesn’t have to be practiced. My goal is to reach other women — and let them know that they can conquer it.”
Alex’s pig husband ((sorry, he is!) Jim – loves her body? He would even love her if she were 5 pounds heaver!? Wow, that is an understanding man right there. I’m not sure what kind of a guy would put up with their wife gaining 5 pounds, I mean – honestly. Jim is an angel.
PS: How great is this photo? It’s back from 2003 when Alexis did some “hometown girl” photo shoot for Maxim.
In news that should surprise absolutely no one, Taylor Armstrong of ‘The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills’ has not-so-secretly separated from her husband of seven years. The last we heard of this couple was that Russell was experiencing serious “cash flow problems” after filing for bankruptcy five years ago.
According to sources not only is Russell being sued by several investors for bilking them, they are also living in a rented home, and have been convicted for felony tax evasion. Good thing Taylor throws $60,000 birthday parties!
A source tells the new issue of Us Weekly (on stands now) that The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star has secretly separated from her banker husband of seven years.
“They’ve had huge marital problems related to finances,” the insider says of the pair, who were seen together with daughter Kennedy, 5, at a May 7 Lollipop Theater Network event in Burbank, Calif.
The couple’s marital problems are nothing new: Bravo viewers watched them bicker constantly during the show’s first season, and Taylor even likened their marriage to a business arrangement.
Still, the recent split is taking a physical toll on Taylor. “She’s emaciated — down 10, 15 pounds,” a source tells Us.
The Real Housewives drama doesn’t end there. New cast member Brandi Glanville, 38 — Eddie Cibrian’s ex — and Kyle Richards, 42, have been “going at it” since filming began on season 2. “They got into a fight and Brandi lunged at Kyle,” a source says. “They had to be separated by producers.
I cannot wait for the new season to start! With the addition of Eddie Cibrian’s ex – it’s gonna be good!

Brandi Glanville – ex wife of LeAnn’s new husband Eddie Cibrian is coming to reality TV!
We got a very close look at the lives – and split – of Camille and Kelsey Grammer during the last season of ‘Real Housewives of Orange County’, and now Brandi is going to get her chance! (YES – that’s Brandi having lunch with Lisa’s nemesis Cedric!! Scandalous.)
Eddie Cibrian left Brandi in 2009 after a tabloid reported his affair with country singer LeAnn Rimes.
A source tells the new issue of Us Weekly (on stands now) that Glanville is in talks to join Bravo’s The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. One likely plotline? Her issues with Cibrian and Rimes.
“Wouldn’t you be upset with them?” asks a source close to the mom of sons Mason and Jake.
The dysfunctional family drama hit a new low April 22 when Cibrian and Rimes got married — without giving his sons so much as a warning! “They didn’t know about the wedding at all,” the tailor who fitted the boys’ tuxedos tells Us. “When the older one asked, ‘Why am I putting this on, Daddy?’ his father didn’t answer.”
At the ceremony, “they were so confused,” adds a second source, who adds that the newlyweds were “too busy partying” to tend to the boys.
Still, a Rimes source counters: “The boys were told about the wedding three days in advance.”
LOVE – IT.
