Which U.S. Real Housewives Have the Highest Net Worth?

There are a few things we can expect while watching Real Housewives: drama, a lot of wine, and luxurious wealth. Even though some of the stars have experienced serious blows to their net worth over the years, the majority of these Bravo reality stars have enough assets to make it rain whenever they feel like it.

According to our trusted sources, here’s a list of the wealthiest U.S. Real Housewives with the highest net worth.

Karen Huger $10 million

When she first appeared on The Real Housewives of Potomac, Karen Huger referred to her husband, Raymond Huger, as the Black Bill Gates. They lived in a beautiful home in Potomac, which they purchased for $1.5 million dollars in February 2003. But in July 2017, the Washington Post reported that her software executive husband and his company owed over a million dollars in back taxes.

They would later put their home up for sale, according to Variety, and despite the issues surrounding their income, Money Inc. reported in 2018 that Karen has a net worth of $10 million dollars. In addition to starting her own company, iKon Enterprises, which is a beauty and fashion boutique, she also gets paid to do public speaking engagements to promote female empowerment.

Stephanie Hollman $18 million


Stephanie Hollman may be one of the newest Bravolebrities, but she’s holding her own in the money department, thanks to her $18 million dollar net worth. The Real Housewives of Dallas star is the wife of Travis Hollman, the owner and operator of Hollman Inc. — a company that he inherited from his father.

The family business has been around since 1976, and they create fitness lockers for their notable clients, including the Chicago Cubs, the Los Angeles Lakers, the Dallas Mavericks, American Express, Facebook, and SoulCycle.

How did their company become so successful? Well, they own a special patent on their lockers that prevents any other businesses from using their methods.

Bethenny Frankel $25 million 


Bethenny Frankel went from being a private chef to publishing multiple books on dieting and fitness before she launched her Skinnygirl brand. The Real Housewives of New York star sold the cocktails portion of her company for an estimated $100 million in 2011, according to People, but she maintained control over the name and transformed Skinnygirl into a bunch of successful products, including candy, deli meat, sweeteners, popcorn, salad dressings, shapewear, and jeans.

She also buys and sells real estate, bringing her net worth to an estimated $25 million dollars, according to People magazine.

Tinsley Mortimer $35 million

When Tinsley Mortimer was 18, she eloped with a man named Topper Mortimer. They quickly got the marriage annulled, but they ended up remarrying in 2002 when she was 26, according to Town & Country. At the time, Topper was bringing in the dough as an investment banker, and when their marriage ended again in 2009, Tinsley wasn’t worried about making ends meet.

Not only is her dad a super wealthy real estate developer in Richmond, Virginia, but the New York socialite has also launched some businesses of her own, including handbag and clothing collections in Japan. She has also worked as a Christian Dior beauty ambassador, bringing her net worth to a staggering $35 million dollars.

Kandi Burruss $35 million 


Kandi Burruss made a living as a singer and songwriter long before she appeared on The Real Housewives of Atlanta. She’s credited as one of the writers for Destiny’s Child’s song “Bills, Bills, Bills,” and one of the most popular songs of the ‘90s and early 2000s — TLC’s “No Scrubs,” which she also won a Grammy for.

While she continues to have success in the music world, she and her husband, Todd Tucker, have branched out to launch other businesses, including multiple Old Lady Gang restaurants, her collection of Bedroom Kandi toys, Kandi Koated Beauty, Raising Ace, and TAGS clothing boutique.

Her net worth is an estimated $35 million, and thanks to all of her accomplishments in the business world, she even received a feature in Forbes.

Lisa Vanderpump $75 million

Lisa Vanderpump reportedly has the highest net worth of all the current U.S. Housewives. She and her husband, Ken Todd, have owned and operated many companies their marriage. By 1998, they had sold four of their London bars for 10.5 million pounds. While living in California, they’ve opened more than 25 establishments, including Sur, Villa Blanca, TomTom, and Pump. Then, they have their lines of vodka and sangria, and she and her husband are both credited as producers of Vanderpump Rules. 

As an original housewife, she reportedly makes $500,000 per season, and sources say she makes the same amount for her role on Vanderpump Rules. In total, Lisa reportedly has a net worth of $75 million dollars.

So, even if she decides to leave The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills behind, which rumors suggest she's planning to quit, she’ll be just fine financially.

Joseline Hernandez's New Boyfriend: 5 Facts You Need to Know

Joseline hernandez new boyfriend

Steebie who?! Joseline Hernandez has confirmed that she has a new boyfriend in her life, and fans of the former Love & Hip Hop Atlanta star are scrambling to gather more facts about him.

Joseline and her mystery man went public in an Instagram post shared to the social media platform in April 2019. Her followers were shocked to see that Joseline had moved on from her ex, Stevie J, and even Amber Rose chimed in with, "So happy for you boo!”

Here's what we know so far about Joseline's new flame.

1. Who is Joseline Hernandez's new boyfriend?

The new man in her life hails from Philadelphia and goes by the name of Ballistic Beats. According to his Instagram account, he's a DJ and a producer. He and Joselie have been spending a lot of time in the studio together, so can we expect some new Ballistic Beats-produced tracks coming from the Puerto Rican Princess? We'll have to wait and see.

2. He already met her daughter Bonnie Bella

Things are getting serious between Joseline and her new man, and he has even met her daughter, Bonnie Bella, whom she shares with Stevie J. The three of them have dined out together, and they've even taken pictures that look a lot like family photo shoots.

With the recent rumors that Stevie J isn't winning any Father of the Year awards, maybe it's a good thing that Ballistic Beats has stepped up to the plate.

3. Will he appear on her reality show?

The ratings for Love And Hip Hop Atlanta have been on the decline for a while now, and some think it's partially due to Joseline leaving the show at the end of season 6 after she butted heads with the show's executive producer Mona Scott-Young. The season 8 premiere garnered one million viewers less than season 7's premiere, according to the Nielsen Ratings (via Rolling Out).

Joseline confirmed in a tweet that she and Bonnie Bella will star on their own reality show on WE Tv.

But the program's premiere date has reportedly been delayed, according to The Jasmine Brand. Here's what the website shared in March 2019:
"Sources tell us that there has been an alleged delay on moving forward with the show. We’re told that Joseline allegedly was informed that she needed to reshoot the show. No word on why Joseline was allegedly told to reshoot and when/if the show will make it to air."

Now that she has a new boyfriend in her life, we wouldn't be surprised if he makes an appearance on her reality show, too!

4. She's already in love

Even though we were only made aware of her new boyfriend less than a month ago, Joseline has stated that she has fallen hard for DJ Ballistic Beats. On April 11, they visited his hometown together, and Joseline, all decked out in an all-red outfit, captioned an Instagram photo: "In ❤️ with a #Philly N***A"

5. Is she trying to make Stevie jealous?

Joseline began dating her Love & Hip Hop Atlanta co-star, Stevie J, in 2011. They welcomed their daughter in December 2016, and things were up and down between them at that time (mainly down), but they put their differences aside and began the journey of co-parenting.

But by July 2017, they became entangled in a bitter custody battle, and when Stevie J married R&B singer Faith Evans in July 2018 in Las Vegas, according to a TMZ report, things got even messier between the former couple.

In March 2019, Joseline claimed Stevie had abandoned Bonnie Bella. Some people think Joseline is now dating DJ Ballistic Beats and flaunting their relationship all over social media just to make Stevie jealous.

Either way, we're happy for her. How about you?

All the Signs Monica & Shannon Brown's Marriage Was Doomed

monica shannon brown divorce

When TMZ reported that R&B singer Monica had filed for divorce from professional basketball player Shannon Brown in March 2019, not everyone was surprised. They have gone through a lot during their eight-year marriage, from multiple cheating allegations to rumors that the T.I. & Tiny: Friends & Family Hustle star was the other woman at the start of their romance.

As we look back at everything that happened during their relationship, we noticed that we missed a bunch of red flags, as well as so many signs that, sadly, their marriage was doomed from the start.

1. A speedy engagement 

monica shannon brown engagement ring

Monica and Shannon met in the summer of 2010 when the former Los Angeles Laker played her love interests in the music video for “Love All Over Me.” Just a few months later, she was flashing a huge engagement ring on Twitter.

Because their relationship went from zero to 100 in the blink of an eye, the R&B singer knew she was going to receive a ton of backlash. So she posted a message on Twitter to acknowledge everyone who had an opinion about their quickie romance. She added, “But we know who we are [...] We pray to an awesome God together," she wrote, in part.

Despite feeling hopeful about their relationship, trouble was brewing almost immediately.

2. Was Monica the other woman? 

shannon brown baby mama

When she and Shannon began dating, many people were immediately confused. As recently as June 2010, Shannon was still involved with a woman named Sharde (pictured, right), whom he also shares a son with. Sharde was even by his side during the Lakers championship parade in June 2010, according to The YBF. A week later, he was on set to play Monica’s love interest in her music video.

Just a few short months after the championship parade that Sharde attended, Shannon was engaged to Monica. So was the “Angel of Mine” singer the other woman all along? Shannon addressed the allegations in an August 2010 since-deleted tweet (via The YBF). He wrote:

“Monica is my girlfriend, confidant and a strong successful woman that has been through a lot herself but she is in no way, a home wrecker. As a parent, I understand that parenting requires a partnership with my son's mother however the relationship between us fizzled a long time ago."
Maybe he was telling the truth and things between him and Sharde were simply platonic. But this wouldn’t be the last time he was labeled a two-timer.

3. Did their age difference cause a problem?

monica shannon brown divorce

By the time they got engaged, Monica was 29-years-old, and Shannon was only 24. To some people, this doesn’t seem like a big deal. But if you factor in Shannon’s career as a professional basketball player with access to a lot of money and groupies, this was a recipe for disaster.

She told The Breakfast Club in 2016 that other basketball wives warned her about the stories and lies that would flood the gossip magazines, but nothing could prepare her for what she would have to deal with.

4. The first sign of trouble 

monica shannon brown divorce

Shannon told Monica on the first day they met that he would marry her. Months later, in November 2010, he fulfilled his promise in a secret wedding ceremony in Los Angeles, People reports. They had a second wedding ceremony for family and friends in July 2011.

The professional basketball player told Hip Hop Non-Stop (via People):

“It’s true. That’s my wife, I’m her husband, you know. We’re going to continue to make positive things happen.” 
The positivity didn’t last long, though.

Right after they celebrated their two-year wedding anniversary, a woman by the name of Corie Zenobia exposed some old messages Shannon allegedly sent her on Twitter in 2011. In the messages, Shannon was pursuing the woman, but there was never any confirmation that they actually met up.

Still, it wasn’t looking good for Monica, and this was just the first of many cheating allegations that would plague their marriage. 

5. More cheating allegations

In Sept. 2013, Monica gave birth to their daughter, Laiyah Shannon Brown. Their baby girl joined Monica’s two sons from a previous relationship,  Romelo and Rodney Hill, and Shannon’s son from a previous relationship. It marked a happy time in the Brown household, but it was a brief moment of joy.

In April 2016, a woman contacted the blog Industry On Blast and accused Shannon of sliding into her DM. The woman said the basketball player flew her out for two days so they could hook up, and he allegedly admitted to her that he wasn’t happy in his marriage.

That same year, Industry On Blast also reported Shannon had gotten a woman named Tammy pregnant and was the father of her two-year-old child, though the blog later claimed the woman was a "psychotic stalker" via Rolling Out.

Monica denied the allegations. Shannon, on the other hand, posted a picture of his wrecked vehicle on Instagram and said if he could survive that car accident, he could live through all of the lies printed about him in the media.

6. Did her intuition try to warn her?

During a 2016 appearance on The Breakfast Club, Monica said she was hesitant to get serious with Shannon when they first met. Because of her past experiences and dealing with infidelity with other men, she had her guard up. Shannon reportedly told her at the start of their relationship, “Let me show you who I am or I'm about to cut this off.”

At the time, they hadn’t had any issues in their romance, but things were still brand new. She was still very nervous about moving things forward, but she couldn’t understand why she was so afraid. Was her intuition trying to warn her?

7. Going ringless 

monica shannon brown divorce

2018 brought a major shift to their marriage. Monica was spotted out and about without her wedding ring, while Shannon was too busy slanging his meat all over Instagram to notice.

On March 26, 2019, he posted a cryptic message on Instagram, reminding himself to protect the peaceful place he had created in his life. The very next day, it was reported that Monica had filed for divorce earlier that same month, citing irreconcilable differences on her petition.

8. She wanted the meat, but was she lacking trust?

monica ti and tiny family hustle girls trip

On an episode of T.I. & Tiny: Friends & Family Hustle, Tiny Harris, Toya Wright, and LeToya Luckett planned a girls trip to a winery, but Monica was hesitant to go. Why?

She kept insisting that she didn’t want to just sit around and “talk” with her girlfriends. Instead, she wanted some “meat” included on the trip. Meat = men.

In one clip, Toya says, “Don’t kill the vibe. We’re going to enjoy this girls trip, and you’ll go home and get your meat later, okay?”

Monica made it seem as if she really wanted her husband and the rest of her friends’ significant others to join them to help spice up the trip. But now, some people think Monica wanted Shannon to join them so that she could keep an eye on him. A lack of trust? Perhaps.

What's Next?

monica files for divorce

While their marriage may be over, Monica has a lot to look forward to. She has plans to release a new album in 2019 and she is staying focused on raising her children, while Shannon is currently playing in the NBA's Gatorade League for the Grand Rapids Drive, though it's unclear if he'll return for the 2019-2020 season.

A lot of people knew her marriage to Shannon was doomed from the start, but we still wish them the best as they move into this new phase of their lives.

Do you think Monica did the right thing by filing for divorce?

Reginae Carter & YFN Lucci's Relationship Just Got Even Messier

Reginae Carter YFN Lucci relationship break up

Okay, we need to talk about Reginae Carter. Who? Lil Wayne and Toya Wright's daughter. She starred in Growing Up Hip Hop ATL and is now featured on T.I. & Tiny: Friends & Family Hustle. Reginae has been with Atlanta rapper YFN Lucci since 2018. Their relationship has been up and down from the start, and things just got even messier.

Let's start with the fact that a lot of people don't care for Reginae. Why? They think she's spoiled, but is it her fault that she has been wealthy the majority of her life and has had access to celebrities thanks to her dad's career? They think she talks too much, but she's simply voicing her opinion on social media just like everyone else. They think she needs to stay out of grown folks' business, but Reginae will be 21-years-old in 2019. That sounds grown to us!

They also think she's a fool for dating Lucci, and that's where we might have to agree.

Here's why.

1. Trouble started early

reginae carter

Reginae met Lucci at a Fendi store in 2018. They were then spotted together during 2018’s NBA All-Star Weekend, according to a video captured by a social media user.

Things started out smoothly at first. They immediately began to flaunt their relationship all over social media, and they attended several events together leading up to the BET Awards in June 2018. But their happy times came to an end when a video was posted online of Lucci throwing money on some strippers at Blacc Youngsta's party. Cringe.

Reginae either didn't care, or she decided to give him another chance. A few days after the raunchy video surfaced online, she flaunted a "YFN" necklace on social media. Don't save her. She don't wanna be saved!

2. Even her mom is worried

toya wright reginae carter yfn lucci

Her mom has even expressed how much she's unhappy with Reginae's decision to date the rapper. On an October 2018 episode of T.I. & Tiny Friends & Family Hustle, Toya explained how she didn't approve of their seven-year age difference, and she didn't like the fact that Lucci already had four kids at the age of 27.

Of course, most people are telling Reginae to run on that fact alone, but we gotta remember that she grew up in a family where her dad had several kids by several different women. So it's obvious that this kind of family dynamics — with baby mamas and kids all over the place — doesn't phase Lil Reg'-Reg'.

3. More cheating allegations & a breakup

reginae carter friendly yfn lucci

In October 2018, photos leaked off Lucci allegedly cheating on Reginae with some women in a hotel room. Though T.I. & Tiny: Friends & Family Hustle was most likely pre-filmed, a December 2018 episode showed Reginae telling her mom that she and Lucci had decided to cool things off so she could focus on her acting career.

Now, before you throw shade and start saying, "What acting career?" Reginae starred had a role in the 2019 TV movie, Pride & Prejudice: Atlanta. Okay, moving on...

They have a tendency to break up and get back together over and over again, like the time they reconciled in January 2019, only to experience relationship problems during Super Bowl weekend, according to Rolling Out. She expressed frustration, which many saw as shade towards Lucci, in a Facebook post that read, "I hate a friendly a*s n****a."

4. She dodged a bullet

reginae carter yfnlucci relationship breakup

Despite how we feel about their relationship, Reginae is sticking by her man. But maybe it's time she reevaluates things. TMZ reported on May 15, 2019, that Lucci's red Mercedes-Benz G Wagon had been shot up during a drive-by in Atlanta on Friday night, and one person was injured. Law enforcement told the gossip website the man inside the SUV (not Lucci) suffered two gunshot wounds.

The vehicle is registered to Lucci's mom, but the rapper is apparently the one who usually drives it, though he wasn't in the car when the drive-by took place. But this mess is crazy because someone is obviously after him.

We feel for the guy who was injured, and can you just imagine if Lucci and Reginae had been in the car? SMH.

Are we stressing out for nothing or do you agree that this isn't the right relationship for the reality star? Let us know down below!

Things You Never Knew About Lauren London

facts about lauren london

Lauren London caught her big break in 2006 when she appeared on Season 1 of Everybody Hates Chris. Since then, she has appeared in music videos for Ludacris, Pharrell Williams, Snoop Dogg, and Ne-Yo. She has also appeared classic films, including ATL and This Christmas.

With the passing of her son's father and soulmate, Nipsey Hussle, more and more people are interested in who Lauren is behind the scenes. Although she keeps most of her personal life private, we were able to find some interesting things you never knew about Lauren London.

1. Growing up biracial was difficult
lauren london's mom and dad
Lauren Nicole London was born on December 5, 1984, to an African-American mother and a Jewish father. Being biracial wasn’t always easy for her. She told Skin Deep author Kathleen Cross that she was teased by her cousins on her mom’s side for “not being black enough.”

During the summer, she would spend time with her dad. He would send her to an all-white summer camp where none of the other kids looked like her. As she got older, she learned not to care what people think about her identity. She said, “I’m black enough [...] I’m okay with who I am and it is what is it is. I’m a black woman.”

2. One of her favorite childhood memories

things you never knew about lauren london

In a 2007 interview with Kam Williams of News Blaze, Lauren said her best holiday memory was celebrating Christmas with her mom, her aunt, and her little cousin. She also mentioned that as a child, Santa Clause wouldn’t always bring her presents. But either way, she enjoyed spending that time with her loved ones.

3. An early love for acting

lauren london school picture

She developed a love for acting when she was in junior high. After starting her freshman year of high school, she was homeschooled so she could focus on her career. And in just a few years, she got her big break.

4. Her first music video

lauren london pharrell williams frontin

She starred in her first music video when she was a senior in high school. While working as an assistant for video director Paul Hunter, he noticed that Pharrell Williams' video for the song “Frontin’” was looking for “regular looking girls.” Paul told 17-year-old Lauren to hop on a plane and head to Miami to appear on the video set.

Lauren told The Source she was so unprepared to appear on camera. She didn’t even have time to get her hair done. Although she looks back at the footage and thinks she looks “a mess” in the video, she considered it one of the most fun experiences, and she and Pharrell have been close friends ever since.

5. More opportunities as a video vixen

Her friendship with Pharrell opened up so many doors for her. And when it came time for him to cast video vixens for the song “Drop It Like It’s Hot” with Snoop Dogg, he called Lauren for some help. The actress said she was put in charge of casting all of the models, so she pretty much hired all of her friends to star in the music video.

6. A bad tattoo teaches a valuable lesson

Lauren has been dropping wisdom ever since she became a celebrity. One of the most important life lessons she gave to young girls came courtesy of a 2017 feature by Entity Magazine. Lauren admitted that at the age of 16, she got a tattoo of her boyfriend’s name.

She advised other girls to think twice before they followed her lead, not because the tattoo hurt, but because she knows that as a teenager, feelings can change so quickly. She stated, “You can show your love in other ways. Ink is not it.”

Of course, she would later go on to get a tattoo in honor of Nipsey Hussle following his March 31, 2019 death. The body art features an image of Nipsey's face and the words "God will rise," which is the English translation of Nipsey's Eritrean first name, Ermias.

Things are different this time, though. Not only is Lauren older and wiser, but she and Nipsey have a bond that can never be broken.

7. Important advice she learned from her mom

lauren london things you never knew

As an adult, the one lesson Lauren learned from her mom was how to be resilient. The actress told Vibe Vixen in 2013 that her mom grew up struggling, but she always remained positive no matter what. Lauren said her mom’s outlook on life was the one thing she wanted to pass down to her kids.

8. The real reason she's so private

She’s very protective of her personal life for many reasons. She prefers to live a low-key life and she likes to keep her business to herself. She has also admitted she has no interest in being famous. She told Vibe Vixen in 2013 that another reason why she chooses to keep to herself is because she’s very “socially awkward.” She added, “I get nervous in large crowds.”

9. Does she get along with Lil Wayne's other baby mamas?

In 2009, Lauren gave birth to her son, Cameron Carter, whom she shares with Lil Wayne. Many people were curious to know how Lauren got along with Wayne’s three other baby mamas, which include Toya Wright (pictured, left), Sarah Vivian, and R&B singer Nivea (pictured, right).

Always the one to express positivity, Lauren made it clear that she and the other women in Wayne’s life got along wonderfully. She told Skin Deep author Kathleen Cross that all of the ladies want the best for their children. Real bonds and friendships have grown between Lauren and the other children’s mothers, which she says leads to less drama and less stress for everyone involved.

10. An eclectic taste in music

lauren london cassie best friends

During an appearance on Snoop Dogg's Double G News, Lauren said her three favorite Los Angeles rappers were DJ Quik, Daz, and Kurupt. Although she was in long-term relationships with two rappers, Nipsey Hussle and Lil Wayne, and her best friend is R&B singer Cassie (pictured, left), Lauren's taste in music goes beyond hip hop and soulful classics.

In an interview with Complex, it was revealed that Barbara Streisand is her idol. Lauren added, "You think because I’m some little black girl, I can’t love Barbra? [Laughs.] I’m the little half-black, half-Jewish girl who was odd and awkward. I try to be myself. Barbra didn’t look like Vivian Leigh or Lucille Ball: She was Barbra Streisand. She made her own mark."

 11. Her life is dedicated to her kids

lauren london nipsey hussle kids

Her life is dedicated to her two children, Cameron and Kross Asghedom. In an exclusive interview with Hollywood Life on March 3, 2019, she said that she always takes her kids on vacation after she’s done filming a movie or television show because it gives them something to look forward to.

She’s also a very hands-on parent. She said, “I make lunches, I take them to school, I pick them up, I take them to birthdays.” And on her off days, she dedicates every single moment to her boys.

Which of these facts about Lauren London shocked you the most? Let us know down below!

Katie Rost Has a New Boyfriend & We Are WORRIED!

Even though Katie Rost was booted as a full-time cast member of The Real Housewives of Potomac after Season 1, she keeps us up-to-date about what's going on in her life through her social media accounts. And, let's just say, this girl has been busy. She even has a new boyfriend, but we're worried about their relationship.

Here's why

1. A divorce & a broken engagement

katie rost ex-boyfriend andrew martin

Katie has been searching for love ever since she left her ex-husband, Dr. James Orsini, when she was four months pregnant with their twins. They would end their marriage in 2016 after four years.

Fans of the reality show remember seeing her with a new man named Andrew Martin on episodes of Real Housewives of Potomac. She and Andrew would eventually get engaged, but Katie called off the wedding in 2016, Perez Hilton reports.

That same year, her ex-husband got custody of their three children. Katie refused to talk about the custody issue on the show, and a source close to production told Page Six that Katie was demoted to a friend of the housewives because she wouldn’t allow the camera crew to film inside her home anymore.

Without her much-needed Bravo Tv paycheck, and the non-stop drama between her and her ex-husband, Katie’s finances took a hit. But we’ll dig deeper into that in a bit.

2. Another brief romance 

katie rost boyfriend jeremy

Despite everything that was going on, Katie still found time to fall in love. She began dating a man named Jeremy, and it wasn’t long before they created a joint Instagram account called Rost and Beer, and he began living with her at her family’s farm in Virginia. But before we knew it, Jeremy was a distant memory.

3. A devastating loss

Katie quickly moved on with a guy named Jacob. This is where things got a little crazy. Katie celebrated Jacob’s 27th birthday in 2018, and there was something else for them to be really excited about. Katie announced she was pregnant with her fourth child. Sadly, on Valentine’s Day 2019, she posted an image online and revealed she had suffered a miscarriage. We also shared the news in this YouTube video.

She would later tell Page Six that Jacob was the one who posted the picture, and it had already spread across the internet by the time she deleted it. At that point, Katie had a lot going on in her life. Not only had she not seen her three little ones in months, but her debt was piling up, and her relationship with Jacob quickly came to an end after she allegedly cheated on him.

4. She found love in Los Angeles

To get away from everything that was going on at home, four days after she announced she was no longer pregnant, Katie and her mom, Rynthia, hopped on a plane and headed out to California, according to her social media account. Many people thought Katie was headed out west to seek therapy. Instead, she hit up Essence’s Black Women In Hollywood festivities, where she bumped into Real Housewives of Atlanta stars, Kandi Burruss and Eva Marcille.

When the event ended, her mom headed back home, but Katie stayed in Los Angeles. She told her fans she's now “bi-coastal” and would be working on finishing up her memoir in L.A. But just weeks after her arrival, she met her new boyfriend, a man named Jesse.

5. Things are moving fast

katie rost boyfriend jesse

In a matter of days, they were attached at the hip. They’ve been spotted on romantic dinners, and they’ve traveled all over the U.S. together. They rode bikes in New York City, did cartwheels on the beach in Santa Barbara, California, and relaxed in Beverly Hills. Even her mom began to wonder when Katie would return back home to the farm. However, it looks like the reality star is going to stay put in Cali because she and her new boyfriend are now looking for a home together.

In an April 2019 Instagram post, she wrote, "We were looking for a house on the beach but our hunting found something much better... fingers and toes crossed that it works out. I’m so happy! #househunting."

6. He's spoiling her with gifts

Katie has made it known that she’s already in love with Jesse, and it looks like he feels the same way. Just weeks after they first met, he began spoiling her with lavish gifts, including some pricey pieces from Chanel. The supermodel appears to be living her best life, but not everyone is happy that she has moved on so quickly after the end of her last relationship.

7. Her fans are upset, but Jesse has it under control

Some of Katie's fans feel duped after they donated money to her February 2019 Go Fund Me campaign. She raised a little over six hundred dollars at the time of this article. One fan was upset that they donated their hard-earned money to someone who’s feasting on sushi and dining out at expensive restaurants, like Nobu. Katie thanked the fan for her generosity, before adding that her new boyfriend Jesse is funding her in an attempt to reunite her with her children.

Oddly enough, her fundraising campaign is still active. What's good, Katie?

8. She's still in the midst of a custody battle

So how will Katie schedule visitation while she’s residing in Los Angeles? Page Six discovered she had attempted to schedule visitation on two different occasions since the last time she saw her children in June 2018.

The court instructed her that all visitations must be held at Bergen Family Center, and so when Katie tried to see her children outside of the facility, she was denied. Apparently, no further attempts have been made.

These days, it looks like Katie is ready to start a new life and make Los Angeles her full-time home with Jesse by her side. Even though we’re worried about her jumping into a new relationship so soon, we hope she has finally found her happily-ever-after.

Are we the only ones worried about Katie's new relationship?

Porsha Williams: From Being Bullied to Becoming a Mogul

Some people are quick to call Porsha Williams "ditzy" and an "airhead," but the Real Housewives of Atlanta star is also a budding entrepreneur. he wasn't always at the reins of her own empire, though.

Following her divorce from Kordell Stewart, Porsha found herself left with nothing. Here's how she went from being bullied to becoming a bride-to-be, a working mom, and a business mogul.

1. She was teased in school

When Porsha first appeared on The Real Housewives of Atlanta, some of the ladies didn’t warm up to her so quickly. Unfortunately, their attitude toward her reminded her of her high school days. Porsha attended school in DeKalb County, Georgia and was bullied all throughout elementary and junior high. She told Us Weekly, "I suffered severe bullying since I was a child, to the extent of contemplating suicide."

In a 2014 interview with Upscale magazine, Porsha said her classmates would tease her for being “super skinny with big teeth.” She also said, “Believe it or not, other black girls would tease me and pull my hair because it was long."

2. Troubled romance brought back bad memories

After getting into an altercation with Kenya Moore at the Season 6 reunion, Porsha issued a public statement via Us Weekly in April 2014. In her statement, Porsha apologized to her fans, the viewers, and the rest of the cast for her behavior. But she also felt she had been provoked and bullied during the reunion taping.

And then she dropped a bombshell: her marriage to Kordell Stewart had gotten physical. Kordell released a statement via the AJC and called her allegations false and a bunch of “foolishness.”
He added, "I loved my wife, supported her and invested in her success. As a reminder, I divorced her. At no time has there been any findings against me, during or before the divorce proceedings, to indicate anything less than a loving and supportive husband."

But some of her castmembers had noticed something was off about their relationship long before their divorce was finalized.

3. Her RHOA castmates were worried

NeNe Leakes wrote in a March 2013 Bravo blog post about the cast’s trip to Las Vegas. The ladies wanted to go to a strip club, but Porsha made it clear that Kordell wouldn’t be happy if she went. NeNe wrote that the entire cast had a feeling that she was being controlled by Kordell. She also added that Kordell treated Porsha like his child and not his wife — something that Porsha later confirmed on an episode of The Real Housewives of Atlanta.

The former NFL player was already the father of a son from previous a relationship, and Porsha said she soon became the “oldest child in the house.”

4. She left with nothing

In a 2013 episode, Kandi Burruss asked Porsha if she had a prenup with her then-husband, Kordell Stewart. Porsha revealed they didn’t have one, and she explained why in her Bravo blog. The reality star explained that through bonding with Kordell in mind, body, and spirit, there was “no place” for a piece of paper to stand between them.

She came up empty in their divorce settlement after finding out on Twitter that Kordell had filed for divorce. In the end, she walked away without getting any personal property, no alimony, none of Kordell’s retirement money, no health insurance, and no monetary settlement.

TMZ even revealed that Porsha was forced to pay her own credit card balances when her marriage came to an end. She was able to keep the Mercedes that she owned prior to their marriage, as well as her engagement ring, while Kordell was awarded two home — one of which he changed the locks on her after filing for divorce — two plots of land, a 2013 Mercedes, a 2010 Porsche, his full retirement benefits, and 100% interest in all of his companies.

She has since learned her lesson (thank God), and she's now adamant about protecting herself and her assets as she prepares to marry Dennis McKinley, based on the above video from her appearance on Watch What Happens Live.

5. Her life did a 180

At one point, she was proud to be a black trophy wife. But after her marriage ended, Porsha worked hard to build her own empire. Not only did Ebony report that she makes $1.5 million per season as a full-time cast member, she’s also a host on Dish Nation, she launched a lingerie line, she’s the owner of Go Naked Hair, she has partnered with Minx Star to release a clothing line, and in November 2018, she debuted Pampered by Porsha — a collection of 180-thread-count bedsheets.

Now that she’s a new mom to baby Pilar Jhena, and her wedding to Dennis is right around the corner, Porsha is finally living the life she has always dreamed of.
