RHONJ Season 14, Episode 7. Half way through and, finally, something has happened. In typical Margaret fashion, Marge reveals private texts between her and Jackie where Jackie calls Dolo a slob. Jackie also says she hates Dolo which, even though everyone seems to have forgotten that, we focus on that here today. You are welcome. Dolo put on her readers and gets angry, Aydin sees, hears and reveals all, Tre slams John and Rachel, Rachel and John clap back, Joey Gorga pretends, again, he is still in college and last, but certainly not least, Messy G thinks her Johnnie Walker Blue Label is bugged.  All this and more as we share the second half of our first ever live show where no question was off limits and pleading the fifth was not an option.  With the one and only Andrea Lopez.  @behindvelvetrope @davidyontef Listen Now: https://www.patreon.com/behindthevelvetrope Learn more about your ad choices.

Rumors continue to swirl that Summer House’s Kyle and Amanda are headed for divorce. We break down these rumors and discuss the likelihood that Kyle and Amanda are headed for Carl and Lindsay territory as the entire SH gang returns to the states after celebrating Andrea Denver’s wedding in Italy.  While all the rumors - most of which we think we started - whops - continue to permeate the BravoVerse about the future of RHONJ, we discuss how we got here, the likelihood anyone will be back, why people are over watching this season, what a total reboot would look like and why RHONJ is the most toxic of all the franchises ever.  Speaking of reboots, we discuss the Vanderpump Rules’ cast latest problems with producers and likelihood VPR will be back on our TV screens anytime soon. @behindvelvetrope @davidyontef BONUS & AD FREE EPISODES Available at - www.patreon.com/behindthevelvetrope  BROUGHT TO YOU BY: HONEYLOVE - honeylove.com/velvet (20% Off On The Best Shapewear & Bras On The Market) BADLANDS PETS - SUPERFOOD COMPLETE - badlandsranch.com/Velvet  (50% Off Your Regular-Priced Order w/ a 90-Day Money-Back Guarantee on Dog Food Vital To Your Dog’s Health) CROCS - crocs.com (20% Off Crocs’ New Brooklyn, Miami & Getaway Sandals with Code Sandals20) FIJI WATER - www.fijiwater.com (Pick Up The #1 Premium Imported Bottled Water Brand In The US At a Store Near You or Order Online) KALM WITH KAVA - kalmwithkava.com/podcast (Use Code VELVETROPE10 for Your First Purchase of the Ultimate Relaxation Beverage) THIS WAS US (Check Out This New Podcast As The Cast of This Is Us Relives Each Episode Every Tuesday on Apple, Spotify and YouTube) TROPICAL SMOOTHIE CAFE (Celebrate National Smoothie Day - Tropic Rewards® Members Get a Free Smoothie On June 21 With Bowl or Food Purchase) WOOGA (Download June’s Journey Now on your iOS or Android Device) BETTERHELP - betterhelp.com/velvetrope (This Episode Is Brought To You By BetterHelp.

Since Kenya Moore’s indefinite suspension, Bravo has failed to release a formal statement, RHOA has continues to film and Miss Moore’s Housewife future remains uncertain. We break down the likelihood that she will really be permanently fired, the investigation behind the scenes that Bravo is most likely conducting and all the comparable situations Bravo has turned a blind eye to in the past.  Speaking of those situations, Danielle Staub has entered the chat. We break down her own revenge porn claims and RHONJ’s past involvement in these claims. Next we break down all the mounting claims that Luis Ruelas and Vinivia CEO are accused of fraud, non payment of employees and much, much more. In other news, Jackie called Dolo a slob, got ratings on WWH better than Tre, and side eyes Marge as their friendship seems to be forever damaged. Finally, if you have not heard, Justin Timberlake was arrested for DUI across the street from our home at our regular place, The American Hotel in Sag Harbor. We break down what we know, what we saw and how this summer in The Hamptons is already off to an insane start.  @behindvelvetrope @davidyontef Learn more about your ad choices.

Kenya Moore has been indefinitely suspended. We break down the incidents leading up to that suspension, the suspension, her IG live, the cast being instructed not to speak to her, the support she has received from Porsha and Drew, the likelihood she will be fired and never return to RHOA and last, but not least, how RHOA moves forward next season in the event Kenya does not return. In other news, Kim Zolciak and Cynthia are set to make a return to TV together, Nene turned down the opportunity, Tamra slams Shannon - again, Alexis and John Janssen have sex more than 4 times a day and Kyle Richards breaks down filming with Dorit in leaked footage of RHOBH Season 14.

The Real Housewives Of Atlanta’s DeShawn Snow steps Behind The Rope. Yes, Season One, OG RHOA, DeShawn Snow. Well it has been a minute, hasn’t it? After a very long pause, RHOA has finally been recast, is filming and set to return to our Bravo screens later this year. On that note, we figured today the perfect day to share this blast from the past chat with the one and only DeShawn Snow. We catch up with DeShawn on all she been up to since we last saw her on our TV screens and chat with DeShawn about her involvement in the franchise - casting, filming, her edit, her exit from the show, how producers thought she was “too normal” and “too nice" for the direction the show was going and how she found out she wasn’t coming back. We chat cast mates - Kim, Shereé, Nene Leakes and many of our other fav Peach Holders past and present - Kandi, Cynthia, Porsche and Kenya! Grab your peaches and take a listen. @deshawnsnow @behindvelvetrope @davidyontef  BONUS & AD FREE EPISODES Available at - www.patreon.com/behindthevelvetrope  BROUGHT TO YOU BY: LOLAVIE - lolavie.com/VELVET (Use Code Velvet For 15% Off Jennifer Aniston’s Award Winning Hair Care) BADLANDS PETS - SUPERFOOD COMPLETE - badlandsranch.com/Velvet  (50% Off Your Regular-Priced Order w/ a 90-Day Money-Back Guarantee on Dog Food Vital To Your Dog’s Health) CROCS - crocs.com (20% Off Crocs’ New Brooklyn, Miami & Getaway Sandals with Code Sandals20) FIJI WATER - www.fijiwater.com (Pick Up The #1 Premium Imported Bottled Water Brand In The US At a Store Near You or Order Online) THIS WAS US (Check Out This New Podcast As The Cast of This Is Us Relives Each Episode Every Tuesday on Apple, Spotify and YouTube) TROPICAL SMOOTHIE CAFE (Visit One of Tropical Smoothie Cafe’s 1400+ Locations or Order Online or Through Their App Their Summer Mocktail Smoothies) WOOGA (Download June’s Journey Now on your iOS or Android Device) ADVERTISING INQUIRIES - Please contact David@advertising-execs.com MERCH Available at - https://www.teepublic.com/stores/behind-the-velvet-rope?ref_id=13198 Learn more about your ad choices.

RHONJ Season 14, Episode 6.  It is official. We are at the half way mark and Teresa and Louie have finally sat down with Rachel and John Fuda.  Apologies, rejections of apologies, name calling and another epic storm out but this wouldn’t be RHONJ without a good table flip or walk out.  We break down the episode - Dolo wants a ring, Cabral heads to Fashion Week, Marge the Sarge does charity work, Messy G lays low, Fessler and Aydin have fun and sip margs, Jackie and Tre grow closer and much, much more.  Our favorite guest, Teresa Giudice, as played by the one and only Andrea Lopez, steps Behind The Rope to help us make sense of all this drama and all that has been going on behind the scenes off air in the dirty jerz. After that, for all you wonderful Patreons who have been asking, yes, as a huge thank you for sticking with us through thick and thin we share our live show from the other week where no question was off limits and where we could not plead  the fifth. Of course the REAL reason for past RHONJ friendship breakups was the top question we received and yea, it was time to set the record straight. #enjoy @andrealopezcomedy @behindvelvetrope @davidyontef Listen Now: https://www.patreon.com/behindthevelvetrope Learn more about your ad choices.

Last week during our live show we predicted that RHONJ would move forward with Teresa, Dolo and Rachel Fuda after this toxic, low rated season comes to a close. Radar.com listened to our live show and is reporting today that an inside source claims this as true. Are we the inside source? We break that down and discuss how likely our prediction is to come true. Denise Richards and The Wild Things has been green lit and, with the help of the same producers as RHOBH, coming to E! sometime soon. A clip has surfaced overnight from RHOBH filming and Kyle Richards is not holding back when letting Dorit Kemsley have it and we are so here for it. Finally, Andy Cohen accuses Carole Radziwill of trashing him and Carole slams back like only Radzi could. A slow day today it is not. @behindvelvetrope @davidyontef Learn more about your ad choices.

Melissa’s Old Nose steps back Behind The Rope.  Gabriela, that is. Teresa, Melissa, Margaret and the rest of the cast of RHONJ has all been asked about the RHONJ bloggers which have emerged in full force over the last few weeks since the beginning of the season to reveal secret DMs, leaked Season 14 screeners and spoilers that were allegedly obtained directly from Teresa, her attorney, Jennifer Aydin and more. Today, the woman behind it all, Melissa’s Old Nose - Gabriela - returns, a third time to, as we like to say, mention it all. She details just how she went from fan, to popular twitter handle to Teresa’s minion receiving what seems like thousands of DM’s from Teresa throughout the years with specific instructions to “tear down” her RHONJ nemeses - Margaret, Mel, Louie’s ex Vanessa and many others which she details in full. She reveals never before heard details on Tre and Louie, Dolores, Andy Cohen. We discuss the now involvement of BravoLebs and Famous Super Fans like Kate Chastain, Michael Rapaport and others who were seemingly part of Tre’s take down plan. The more Melissa’s Old Nose revealed, the more questions we had regarding the secret, toxic nature of what really goes on Behind The Scenes, off camera with the RHONJ cast past and present. As hard as it is to render us speechless, consider us schooled in complete disbelief. #nowords.

The Real Housewives of Orange County Season Eighteen Trailer has dropped. From the moment Teddi Mellencamp threw her epic shade reminding Miss Victoria Gunvalson that she is no longer a full time housewife, we were hooked.  Newbie Katie comes for Queen Dubrow, Shannon’s drinking exposed by her ex friend Tamra, her car crash explained to her children and ex John Janssen front and center, if not in name only, thanks to the brilliant return of Alexis Bellino. We are extremely hopeful for a great season of RHOC and pure return to form of the entire multi city franchise after RHONJ has proven what not to do after five long weeks. Throw in some Sutton Stracke, Shannon Beador being shown the door and Gina Kirschenheiter reminding all of us that yes, this is exactly the type of women our fav Orange Holders are and we are here for it. In other news, last night in the Hamptons we had a sighting of the - do you hear that buzzing sound - one and only Singer Stinger. We break down exactly what we observed from Miss Ramona and boyfriend Bill. We could not make this up if we tried. @behindvelvetrope @davidyontef Learn more about your ad choices.

Louis York steps Behind The Rope. Claude Kelly and Chuck Harmony, that is. Between the two of these guys, they have worked with EVERYONE, and we mean everyone in the music business. By “worked with” we mean, written songs for, produced and everything else under the sun for a whose who amongst today’s top artists. Britney Spears. Let us just start there. Claude wrote “Circus" for Britney, the song, and album, that was recorded at a very crucial point in her life - right after her very public meltdown the result of which a conservatorship was formed appointing her father as guardian. Short of “Blackout”, Circus was the song/ album that launched her “comeback”. We delve deep into what it was like working with Britney during that time in her life, what Claude and Chuck think of the “Free Britney” movement and thought of the “Framing Britney Spears” movie. We also talk about working with Lady Gaga, Kelly Clarkson, Miley Cyrus, Rihanna, John Legend, The Backstreet Boys, Whitney Houston, and last but not least, Michael Jackson. The boys bond with David over their love of Madonna, Prince and more.  We figured today the perfect day to share this musical extravangaza blast from the past.  @louisyorkmusic @behindvelvetrope @davidyontef BONUS & AD FREE EPISODES Available at - www.patreon.com/behindthevelvetrope  BROUGHT TO YOU BY: CROCS - crocs.com (20% Off Crocs’ New Brooklyn, Miami & Getaway Sandals with Code Sandals20) BADLANDS PETS - SUPERFOOD COMPLETE - badlandsranch.com/Velvet  (50% Off Your Regular-Priced Order w/ a 90-Day Money-Back Guarantee on Dog Food Vital To Your Dog’s Health) INDEED - indeed.com/velvet (Seventy Five Dollar $75 Sponsored Job Credit To Get Your Jobs More Visibility)  TROPICAL SMOOTHIE CAFE (Visit One of Tropical Smoothie Cafe’s 1400+ Locations or Order Online or Through Their App Their Summer Mocktail Smoothies) WOOGA (Download June’s Journey Now on your iOS or Android Device) THE KARDASHIANS (New Season Streaming Now Only On Hulu) ADVERTISING INQUIRIES - Please contact David@advertising-execs.com MERCH Available at - https://www.teepublic.com/stores/behind-the-velvet-rope?ref_id=13198 Learn more about your ad choices.

RHONJ Season 14, Episode 5. 8 more to go. We kid, We joke. We break down this past week’s RHONJ - Frank Catania for the storyline, Danielle Cabral’s mystery family where something just ain’t adding up, a Tre who stormed out, a Jackie who found her voice and one activated Rachel Fuda who, in her second season, is not even remotely afraid to take on the Queen. In other news, we talk about all of the off air RHONJ blogger drama, the RHONJ reunion cancellation, Andy Cohen’s confusing explanation and just who we expect to be fired, terminated and asked to leave once this season is over. Yes, here we go again. All this and more as we are joined by the very one and only Miss Andrea Lopez (as Teresa and Kourtney Kardashian) @andrealopezcomedy @behindvelvetrope @davidyontef Listen Now: https://www.patreon.com/behindthevelvetrope Learn more about your ad choices.

Lisa Vanderpump has had a lot to say about Kyle Richards over the past few weeks and Kyle has clapped back in a big way. We break down both of their claims, all the shade and discuss what we learned in the process. Caroline Manzo’s attorney has detailed all the things she claims Brandi has done to her on Girl’s Trip, Brandi claps back calling it “Buyer’s Remorse” and we discuss the likelihood that this lawsuit will end up in court with the likes of Phaedra Parks as a witness. Finally, with the RHONJ reunion cancelled, we break down who will likely lose their job in eight short weeks.  @behindvelvetrope @davidyontef BONUS & AD FREE EPISODES Available at - www.patreon.com/behindthevelvetrope  BROUGHT TO YOU BY: BADLANDS PETS - SUPERFOOD COMPLETE - badlandsranch.com/Velvet  (50% Off Your Regular-Priced Order w/ a 90-Day Money-Back Guarantee on Dog Food Vital To Your Dog’s Health) CROCS - crocs.com (20% Off Crocs’ New Brooklyn, Miami & Getaway Sandals with Code Sandals20) INDEED - indeed.com/velvet (Seventy Five Dollar $75 Sponsored Job Credit To Get Your Jobs More Visibility)  TROPICAL SMOOTHIE CAFE (Visit One of Tropical Smoothie Cafe’s 1400+ Locations or Order Online or Through Their App Their Summer Mocktail Smoothies) ADVERTISING INQUIRIES - Please contact David@advertising-execs.com MERCH Available at - https://www.teepublic.com/stores/behind-the-velvet-rope?ref_id=13198 Learn more about your ad choices.

Kathryn got one thing wrong: Tom Girardi wasn't the character portrayed by Albert Finney in Erin Brochovich but rather Peter Coyote's city lawyer character.
