Bravo dismissed four of the ladies on "The Real Housewives of New York," but it looks like one of their New Jersey counterparts might be trying to bail on her own accord.
In a string of tweets earlier this week, "Real Housewives of New Jersey" cast member Jacqueline Laurita made some interesting remarks, which have been taken as a sign that she's exiting the show.
First she explained that she wasn't attending the reunion because she felt ill, and then followed that up with, "Someone (not me) got set up tonight. There are some sneaky people trying to make someone look bad & then play innocent on camera. Sad....2b honest. I'm tired of the BS & s---y low life people. I didn't know this was what I signed up 4. I have 2rise above & move on."

In an exclusive interview for "Entertainment Tonight," Nancy O'Dell sat down with “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” star Taylor Armstrong at her Bel Air home to discuss the brutal photos currently being circulated by the show.
"ET" cites a unnamed source close to Taylor who says that the reality star underwent Lasik eye surgery on July 5. The source claims that days later, Russell hit her in the face so hard that her corneal flap was dislocated.

Bravo star Bethenny Frankel’s Skinnygirl cocktail line has been pulled from Whole Foods, according to Access Hollywood.
Apparently the ingredients aren't "all natural," like the bottle claims. Jill Zarin must be having a field day with this.
"After discovering that [Skinnygirl Margarita] contains a preservative that does not meet our quality standards, we have had to stop selling it," said the natural and organic grocery chain in a statement.

The network that brings us “Mad Men” and “Breaking Bad” is considering a talk show about its own shows, reports New York Magazine.
Bravo's Andy Cohen - host of “Watch What Happens: Live,” which airs after each new episode of “Real Housewives” - has become a smashing success. AMC wants to do a similar show to discuss its scripted series.
Like “Watch What Happens,” the talk show would feature guests and discuss AMC's dramas in a post-game fashion.

The premiere was originally scheduled to air September 5, and although Bravo has said little this week other than to offer condolences to the Armstrong family, reports circulated that the premiere date would be pushed back by at least a week.
