When Omarosa Manigault appeared on her archrival Bethenny Frankel's talk show on Wednesday, confrontation was expected – and viewers weren't disappointed.
The pair – who've been feuding for more than three years since Frankel dismissed The Apprentice star as nothing more than a reality TV villain – didn't hold back. In the segment, Manigault suggested that the reason why Frankel had been successful was because she was white.
"It's different for you and I," she told the talk show host. "I am an African-American woman. You get to walk around and be mediocre and you still get rewarded with things. We have to be exceptional to get anything in this business."

Finding your soul mate has never been easier, says matchmaker Patti Stanger.
She should know.
The star of Bravo's hit reality series, Millionaire Matchmaker, said she met her soul mate, handsome former baseball player David Krause, when she finally figured out what was preventing her from finding love.
"Two years ago, I was depressed because I hadn't found the true love of my life," Stanger, 52, told PEOPLE Saturday at the Ladies Luxury Luncheon that her close friend, former Real Housewives of New York star Jill Zarin, hosted in Southampton.

Could it be that the Real Housewives franchise is America's greatest most recent export?
After The Real Housewives of New Jersey premiered to a whopping 2.8 million viewers on Sunday, it's easy to see why television networks across the globe would want to profile the rich, famous – and feuding.
As the hostility between Housewives Teresa Giudice and Melissa Gorga continues to play out in front of cameras, the series is finding legs far from New Jersey – specifically in places like Israel, Canada, Ireland and Brazil.
Take a peek at what's happening on Housewives-inspired shows all over the world:

How about a side of venom with that tea?
After non-stop feuding on their St. Barts trip, Aviva Drescher was "furious" with Ramona Singer on Monday's Real Housewives of N.Y.C., and wasted no time going in for the attack during a cringe-inducing nine-minute showdown over tea.
"I'm hoping to get a somewhat of a sober person in front of me," Drescher snapped, explaining to the camera why she arranged to meet Ramona during the day. (The purported reason for their meeting, by the way, was Aviva's anger over Ramona phoning her ex-husband to ask about her phobias.)
Sensing she was walking into a tense situation, Singer told her adversary,"You tend to raise your voice when you lose it. Let's not lose it today."
But indeed the ladies got into it – quickly, in fact – as Aviva reiterated her contempt for Ramona and sidekick Sonja Morgan's behavior during their island getaway, alleging they slept naked in bed together and calling it "disgusting behavior."

After an eventful start to their St. Barts vacation – which found Countess LuAnn De Lesseps the subject of morning-after infidelity rumors – the drama boiled over on Monday's episode of The Real Housewives of New York City. And, naturally, there was a man involved.
Aviva Drescher has been open with the ladies about her anxiety, especially when it comes to travel. Initially, she declined to join them on their island getaway, citing her crippling fears of flying. But after some persuasion, and help from her husband Reid, who accompanied her on the journey, Aviva flew down to join the ladies. Only, some of them weren't necessarily thrilled by her impending arrival.
Worrying in advance that Reid's presence would ruin the Girls Gone Wild vibe that Ramona Singer and Sonja Morgan (a.k.a. Ramonja) had cultivated thanks to their wine-swilling and topless swimming adventures, the ladies plotted. Should they rent another house for themselves? (They did go looking!) Or would Reid stay at a hotel?

Bethenny Frankel is known for telling it like it is – especially when it comes to her personal life.
In this week's PEOPLE, the reality star-turned-talk-show host reveals the truth about her marriage to Jason Hoppy, which recently has been rumored to be on the brink.
"We've been scared," says Frankel, 41. "The second year of marriage was not easy. We hit bottom, [but] we came out the other side."
After rising to fame on Bravo's Real Housewives of New York City, Frankel has wrapped the final season of her reality series Bethenny Ever After, which magnified the couple's troubles this past year.

Here's some feud for thought: Are you on Team Heather or Team Ramona?
On Monday's The Real Housewives of New York City, original cast member Ramona Singer came face to face with newbie Heather Thomson at their costar Aviva Drescher's five-year anniversary party.
It was the first time the two women, who did not start off on the right foot, were in each other's company since Heather organized a trip to London and invited everyone but Ramona.
So when Heather tried to play nice at the party, Ramona was not interested.

After a big casting shake-up this season on The Real Housewives of New York City, Jill Zarin seems to think Bravo needs her back.
But that's not going to happen.
"We wish Jill the best, but there is no consideration of her returning to the series," a network spokesperson tells PEOPLE.
The former Housewife, who was fired after the fourth season along with Alex McCord and Kelly Bensimon, has publicly criticized the newly rebooted series and recently told the New York Daily News, "You don't change what works."
