Lisa Vanderpump’s Former Beverly Hills Mansion Goes Up In Flames!!!


Nine months after Lisa sold her $19 million mansion, a fire tore through the property Friday.

"I'm shocked, really," VanderPump -- currently filming the Bravo spinoff, Sur -- told KCAL-TV.

"It's been an incredible journey coming to America and living there. My daughter got married in that house, so I'm pretty emotional about it even though I sold it a few months ago."

E! News reports that more than 100 firefighters were dispatched to the property to extinguish the flames after the fire was reported around 6:30 p.m. local time. Portions of the home's roof and floors collapsed during the blaze, and one firefighter was treated at a local hospital for unknown injuries.

Adrienne Maloof's adjacent property, where she and her cast mates were filming had to be evacuated, though fire officials told E! that the blaze was contained to VanderPump's former residence.

VanderPump and her husband, Ken Todd, sold the seven bedroom, 10 bathroom manse in September in order to downsize to a smaller property.

Lisa Reacts To Fire That Devastated Her Former Home!

The Bravo TV star watched, in disbelief, as the flames tore through her former home. She and her husband sold the house five months ago for nearly $19 million. Juan Fernandez reports.

Alexis Bellino Parties at Encore Beach Club!

Alexis Bellino from “The Real Housewives of Orange County” showed her pre-Independence Day patriotism and a whole lot more on Friday while rocking a red, white and blue bikini at Encore Beach Club at Encore Las Vegas.

Andy Cohen: Research Is Our Cocaine!

Which network boasts the most affluent, educated and engaged audience in cable? Did you guess Bravo?

Yep, it turns out that more of your friends and acquaintances are watching "Real Housewives" than care to admit it.

According to Bravo, ratings for all of the NBC Universal property's franchises are on the rise, and "Watch What Happens Live" is the No. 1 late-night show among females. A surprising amount of men are also tuning into the network's reality fare.

"We snort up research like fine Colombian cocaine."

That was just one of the many memorable one-liners to come out of the mouth of Andy Cohen during a Q&A session hosted today by Deutsch, New York.

In an age where fewer and fewer people are tuning into TV live, Mr. Cohen has hordes of viewers doing just that on a nightly basis, with his interactive program.

"I love Twitter because it's a live focus group," said Mr. Cohen. In fact, three cast members from "The Real Housewives of New York" were fired from the show because of negative feedback about them on social media. That kind of engagement is shrewdly pushed along by Mr. Cohen, who says of his post, "I'm the biggest shit-stirrer on the planet and I get paid to do it."

As for all the brands that inevitably end up getting free publicity from shows such as the various "Housewives," (Skinny Girl margaritas, anyone?), Mr. Cohen said, "We don't love the product shilling, but if it's good for the story, it needs to be covered."

Asked what advice he would give to a creative organization, Mr. Cohen replied: "I'm a big believer in going with your gut. Do what you want, but if it's not what the other person wants, let go. ...Learn from your failures and at least try to study what didn't work." And most importantly, "know your audience."

Where Are They Now? RHONYC's Alex McCord!

This season of The Real Housewives of New York has been filled with the faint stench of Pinot and fabulousness, but not gonna lie: We miss Alex McCord.

The housewives just aren't the same without her calling them "thugs in cocktail dresses" — a phrase which Alex once profited from thanks to this classy novelty line.

So, are you dying to know what else this feisty gal is up to? Alex currently lives in Cobble Hill, Brooklyn, with her hubby Simon van Kempen and their two kids, and she's president of a bedding and bath linen company called Aluxe Home.

She also gets her blog on for The Huffington Post, and you can check out her latest article, "Drunk Parenting...Yes or No"!

Alex was fired from Bravo's Real Housewives love nest, but she recaps the current season (and gives "inside scoop") in weekly videos for Rumor Fix. Girlfriend has all the answers! Clearly, Alex can't get enough of the camera, and she currently co-hosts Coffee Shop Confessions on Café Mom’s YouTube channel, where she girl-talks about lady problems.

According to her bio on The Huffington Post, Alex is in the "celebrity division" of New York Model Management (we've seen this lady walk the beach runway –– she ain't kidding), and she and Simon are Ambassadors for Style Week Providence in Rhode Island. You know, because of how well-dressed they are.

You can follow Alex on Facebook and Twitter, and if you feel the sudden urge to hear her dulcet tones over the phone, you'll be thrilled to know that she and Simon are on Dial-A-Star.

Kenya Moore Denies Being a New Addition to Real Housewives of Atlanta!

Kenya Moore is the former Miss USA who is rumored to be staring on season 5 of Real Housewives of Atlanta. Although many others have also been rumored to be joining the show, several photos of her filming with the cast have convinced fans that she is surely part of the new season.

However, photos or not, Kenya is claiming to not have anything to do with it. She recently tweeted, "Some people are so thirsty they send fake stories to bloggers #nothingsurprisesme." The tweet was in response to a photo she posted of her and some of the already confirmed cast members from last season.

As per her contract, Kenya would not be able to disclose being cast on the show until the show airs, or until Bravo confirms it.

Teresa on The Morning Show!

Cast member of Bravo's hit series The Real Housewives of New Jersey, Teresa Giudice, unveils her third cookbook, Fabulicious!: Fast & Fit.

Carole Wants to Be Tom Cruise's Next Wife!

Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes may have just called it quits, but Real Housewives of New York beauty Carole Radziwill has already set her sights on the leading man as a potential new romance.

“I want to be the next wife of Tom Cruise,” Carole tweeted, apparently without a hint of irony.

“He's really really nice.”

We don’t doubt that Tom is very nice, but considering that he is about to go through a divorce, we don’t really think of him as good potential husband material right now.

But then again, Carole is a sexy single woman.

Maybe she just wanted to weigh in on the TomKat divorce before things got ugly.
