We've been pretty heavy on the Real Housewives of New Jersey coverage lately, but how about some news from the other franchises? Okay ... and a little from Jersey as well. Sorry, things are just so crazy over there, we can't resist!

Not all titles featured on BuddyTV are available through Amazon Prime.


Grandma Vicki

Congrats to The Real Housewives of Orange County star Vicki Gunvalson who became a grandma over the weekend. Her daughter Briana Wolfsmith and her husband Ryan Culberson welcomed baby Troy William Culberson on Friday.

"I'm so proud of Briana and Ryan. They will make amazing parents," Vicki tweeted. "Thank you everyone for the great messages about my grandson. Briana and baby will be coming home tomorrow. He's so beautiful."

Vicki hasn't confirmed on whether she will be returning for another season of RHOOC, but maybe now that there's an opening in the cast after Alexis Bellino's departure, Briana could be the next housewife?

No New Wives

Despite rumors that have been going around the Internet that Bravo was putting out a casting call for a Real Housewives of Santa Barbara franchise, the network quickly shot down any chance of that happening.

"The Dish can officially tell you that there is no Real Housewives of Santa Barbara show, and any rumors that you may have heard along those lines are simply that," Bravo released in a statement on their gossip blog, The Dish. "In fact, Andy Cohen has stated in the past that there would be no new Housewives locales following Real Housewives of Miami, and hey, we believe him."

As a consolation, here is a cool new promo for The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, due to start back up on November 5.

The family members of The Real Housewives of New Jersey have gone through a lot of drama this season. Melissa Gorga tells the Huffington Post that the journey has been rough, but in the end it's worth it.

"There is always good with the bad, I didn't come on the show to bring anyone down. I didn't come on to expose anyone. I came on to show we have a great life and we worked hard to have that life," Melissa said. "Was it worth it? Yes and no. At night, I can put my head on my pillow because I'm not doing anything wrong. I'm not trying to hurt anyone. I cannot control what other people do to me or how Teresa's actions are hurting this family. For me, it's worth it, because I'm not doing anything wrong."

Ladies and gentlemen, I give you Saint Melissa.

Bad Blonde

"When I look back at the night of the Mynt's 10-year anniversary, I am definitely not happy about the way I acted -- especially letting the alcohol take over, instead of controlling myself," The Real Housewives of Miami star Joanna Krupa wrote on her Bravo blog about her drunken behavior from last week's episode.



"I was hurt by my sister when she said I never defend her to Romain, and that made me extra sensitive that evening. I guess I wanted to show Marta that I do love her more than anything, and that she is so important to me, and that I will do whatever it takes to defend her. However, I went a little overboard, and had a major meltdown and tantrum attack, haha!"

Joanna might have been a little messy, but we've all been there, am I right? Well, except Aviva Drescher from RHONYC, who might be prone to calling Joanna "white trash."
