Kim Zolciak is expecting twins, Briana Culberson has a huge blowout with Brooks Ayers, and Top Chef Masters critics go gaga for cronuts: catch up on everything you might have missed this week.

Twice the Fun for Kim Zolciak

Don't Be Tardy star Kim Zolciak revealed this week that she and husband Kroy are expecting twins! With the addition of the two newborns, Kim and Kroy will be parents to six children. "It's going to be very busy but it's a dream come true," Kim said. "I couldn't be more excited. I had no idea…but twins do run in the family, so I guess I shouldn't have been surprised."

RHOC Reunion: Briana Explodes at Brooks

Vicki Gunvalson and ex-boyfriend Brooks Ayers have had their share of drama. Now, Vicki's daughter Briana is joining the mix in an explosive segment during the third installment of The Real Housewives of Orange County reunion episode, which airs Monday the 26th at 8/7c. One of the most stunning allegations? That Brooks told Briana's husband, Ryan Culberson, to "start hitting Briana to get her to fall in line."

Nuts for Cronuts

Cronuts are all the rage in New York these days, and our Top Chef Masters critics are not immune to the hype. Gail Simmons, a friend of the baker (Dominique Ansel) who invented the croissant-donut hybrid, had him set one aside for her. Curtis Stone admitted that the confections live up to the hype. However James Oseland and David Burke have yet try the delicacy.

Gretchen Nose Best

Everyone knows the Housewives aren't opposed to a little cosmetic surgery, but fans of The Real Housewives of Orange County were still abuzz when Gretchen Rossi debuted her "new" nose. So did the newly engaged 'Wife actually go under the knife? It turns out she didn't. "My make-up artist has been doing some shading on my nose," Gretchen told Andy Cohen. "It makes it look so much thinner, which is what I'd want it to do if I went and got a nose job."

Emmy by Bravo

Mazels all around! We're making room in our trophy case for Last Chance Kitchen's brand new Emmy! The National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences announced on Thursday that Last Chance Kitchen has been awarded an Emmy in the category of Outstanding Achievement in Interactive Media. Last month, Bravo was nominated for five Emmy awards for Top Chef and Inside the Actors Studio, in addition to nominations for the prestigious CableFAX Program Awards.

RHOM's Alexia Echevarria Shows Off Her Palatial Home

Alexia Echevarria gave us an exclusive tour of her impressive Miami digs. The Real Housewives of Miami star's home features a recording studio, an outdoor patio and, of course, plenty of space for her shoe collection. "I love this area," Alexia says of her shoe room. "I can see all my shoes, just sit here, touch them, and even smell them. Just kidding!"

Wedding Bells Are Ringing for Christian Siriano

The man that started the "Fierce" catchphrase during season 4 of Project Runway will soon be walking down a different kind of runway--the wedding aisle. Christian Siriano recently announced his engagement to Brad Walsh. So will the fashion guru be a groomzilla? Turns out, he hasn't even begun to plan his wedding yet!"We have, like, no plans yet" Siriano revealed.

Kim is a great mom I love the way she keeps going, she's like the energizer bunny! Her daughter will love the twins, she just needs to adjust to all the attention the smaller kids get. I think Kroy should spend some time with the older girls so they feel special as well.

Briana needs to get rid of her husband, he is a disrespectful, uncivilized lying little boy who needs to grow up! Briana be careful with that one, seems like he can turn out to be abusive towards you.

Twins!  I can't wait to see the new show with the four babies and the two beautiful older daughters.   I wish Bravo would dump the crazy jersey show and put Tardy for the party on twice a week....Kim is so funny and it is like watching the old Lucy & Desi show.  Kim and her husband know how to entertain.  Well those twins will help fill up that big house.

God Bless them all.  Love them

Vicki is self-centered. She has called all the other women on the show nasty names & have made derogatory remarks about them. One can making a drinking game out of it, including how many times she's called Alexis "stupid". I don't recall any clips where she made sincere apologies. How rude to roll her eyes, scoff, & dumb down Alexis when she told Vicki she was a business woman. The same with Gretchen. Vicki should be a better role model/mentor for them when she talks about women and all. It seems more and more she seems to have double-standards, talk out of both sides of her mouth, and is on the show to plug the successes she got from the benefits of the show. Rather than taking her anger out on others needlessly, I hope she finds a good guy and some happiness too. I also hope she get that chip off her shoulder and give Gretchen the respect she deserves.

Why is it when Vikki is confronted on anything she says she would never say that or she says its not in her vocabulary? She needs therapy before she gets in another relationship!

omg Vicki get over yourself, brooks is a slimmie piece of crap and Brianna you need to send your husband to a therapist, he had no right to do and say what he did to Lydia mothers, watch some of the back tapes he thinks he owns Vicki's house and omg if I was a friend to Vicki I certainly would never go to her house I don't think I need to be on a surveillance tape, but Vicki there are several men out there that would love to show you a great time and give you a great life where you don't have to be the supporter good luck to you

Hope you're happy Brianna for what you just did to your mom!! That was unforgivable!!! You just don't seem to know how to let it drop instead you just keep the vengeance going. Stay out of your moms love life it isn't your job to tell her who she should see or not see. Thank god my daughter is intelligent enough to not involve herself In that part of my life. We respect each other too much to act the way you just did.

I would love it if Donn and Vicki got back together. Everyone makes mistakes and both of them have made their share... but on that excursion to wherever it was that they went to the rapids, vicki was technically dating brooks but she said in that episode that she would have taken donn back if that was what he wanted...  Maybe that is the real reason the divorce hasn't happened, is because, above all else, they still love each other.

Cannot wait for the episode with Brooks. I was surprised to see Brooks and Vicki so distant and him not filling her love tank anymore this season.   Maybe the truth lies in the fact Vicki refuses to get a divorce and therefore Brooks cannot move in and get married to her.  So she tells Andy she is not getting a divorce cause she will have to pay Don alimony--well guess that puts Brooks with Vicki where he has alway been with her--nowhere.

Can u imagine how these people really behave when the cameras are off? I love Brandi and Lisa on the Beverly Hills show, they let it all hang out, you have the two sisters that were spoiled their whole lives(witch mountain) they're half sisters to Kathy Hilton, Paris' aunts, then you have one that her husband hung himself and the wife and child walked in the scene, then you have Yolanda married to the rich music lyrics for movies, and Brandi who was dumped by her husband for Leann Rymes, then Lisa Vanderpump, mogul with husband owning restaurants. I think the more we watch the worst they behave. They're probably paid the more they act out, and we're sick for living vicariously through the shows. The psychologist rates just went up. Oh, try watching the New Jersey girls, you'll be ready for the looney bin after watching them. Good Luck to all!!

Goodness sakes, this is a "Reality" show. These people are paid for what they do. I too am hooked on the HWOBH. They are a bit more classy and I love the clothes and looking at the homes. But I always remember they are acting. The more drama the more ratings.

Is the "Crazy Ryan blowup" talked about on the reunion??

I can understand Brianna concerning Brookes, but she doesn't have a right to speak on ANYONE'S relationship, whether good or bad, because she's married to a raging, maniac, time bomb!!!!!

@Libop I completely agree! And such a great point!!

@sammie0722 I agree about Brianna's husband and the "couch incident". He went too far, and they should've addressed. As with any military figure, I'm grateful for his service, but that's not a reason not to discuss it & not give a proper apology to Lydia's mom.

 @Down_home hmmmm...very bad acting one would have to say.

Don't waste your time on those shows....watch Tardy for the Party she is hoot.
