ANDY COHEN WON'T BE INTERVIEWING LISA VANDERPUMP
Bravo producer and Watch What Happens Live host Andy Cohen says that he will not be interviewing Lisa Vanderpump after she decided not to show up for the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills season nine reunion taping earlier this month.
Cohen told Vulture, "I don’t know. I’m not going to do a Lisa rebuttal show. Her time to say her peace was at the reunion, and she gave up that opportunity."
Vanderpump decided to skip the reunion after falling out with her costars. A day later, she decided to quit the series altogether. She told US Weekly earlier this month, "I made the decision to leave. It was a very difficult year for me, personally and professionally. I had wonderful things happen this year, opening up and TomTom and the cocktail garden in Vegas. The Housewives, it’s just, it’s emotionally too difficult to deal with."
Although Cohen was disappointed that Vanderpump didn't show up to the reunion, he confirmed in a recent interview that the two still have a great relationship. He also added that the door is open for Lisa if she ever decides to come back to the show.

GAY SON OF RHONJ STAR JIM MARCHESE CLAIMS DAD CUT HIM OFF AFTER HE CAME OUT
In other news, the eldest son of Real Housewives of New Jersey stars Amber and Jim Marchese has claimed that his parents cut him off financially after he came out as gay. 19-year-old James Michael Marchese shared his story on a GoFundMe page, saying that he was seeing $35,000 to help pay for his freshman year tuition at Fairfield University.
He revealed that his dad found out that he was gay in the beginning of 2019 and that led to him being "removed from his home" after "two weeks of mental abuse." He moved in with his mom Rebecca Grande. Since then, James says Jim cut ties with his son until he lives "according to his standards."
Jim responded to his son's claims, saying that his decision to cut him off financially has nothing to do with his sexuality. He told People, "I paid over $40,000 in 2018 for private school and purchased him a Range Rover. I gave his mother over $10,000 to support him and his brother so they had a good home. Our divorce settlement states we are to match the other parents contribution. I already paid my portion. His mother is refusing to pay anything." He continued, "Michael wants me pay an additional $275,000 for Fairfield, a s— school for rich kids with average grades. I offered to help if he attended state school. He has not presented me with one financial form on any school."
He added, "His entire story is a fraud. Michael isn’t being honest as I already gave his mother money for his college."
On his son's sexuality, he said, "My son is mentally ill and refuses therapy. He should experience life and make a responsible decision about lifestyle in their twenties or thirties after having some perspective on life."
He added, "Michael, by labeling himself at 18 years old and making it public, has closed so many doors without the benefit of experience."
Neither Jim nor Amber have spoken to James since he left the house.
