Good gracious. I feel as though I should call this episode of The Real Deal the "Leaks Edition" -- thanks to NeNe Leakes, Real Housewives of Orange County casting leaks, and Bethenny Frankel feud leaks.

Last night we saw episode three of I Dream of NeNe: The Wedding, and it's saying something very big when I'm more afraid of the bridesmaids than the bride. And who is getting fired in Orange County? If you are a housewife, are there any signs you can look out for to know whether you're on the way out?

From fashion to therapy to bridesmaids throwing down, NeNe’s show is by far the most entertaining wedding spinoff I’ve seen on Bravo. Today I discuss why she’s different, the psychology of husband and wife power plays, and the children of reality stars.


Over in Orange County, the rumor mill is swirling about who is in and who is out for next season. Will it be Alexis Bellino? Gretchen Rossi? Will Lauri Peterson come back? As someone with direct experience, I weigh in on what may be happening right now.

Finally, did you see this gossip item published today? Radar Online somehow got hold of a few private conversations held last week between me, Bethenny Frankel, and Jill Zarin. I wonder how ...

Watch my exclusive video for my response to the Radar article, NeNe, and Orange County, and tell me in the comments who you think should come back!

Do you think the RHOC will really fire two of its most popular stars?
