Wednesday night’s episode of “The Real Housewives of Orange County” saw series newbie Noella Bergener take a dig at frenemy Heather Dubrow, who she finds a bit self-absorbed.
Bergener, 36, met Dubrow, 53, at her Newport Beach mansion to discuss issues in their burgeoning friendship.
The two made their way to Dubrow’s podcast studio, which has walls covered in photos of the actress — a decorative choice that made Bergener cringe.
“I had my suspicions before but this is pretty concrete evidence. This is a shrine to a complete and really, really good narcissist,” she said in a confessional. “This is thorough. If I wasn’t so creeped out, I’d be impressed.”
When they sat down to chat, Dubrow confronted Bergener over claims that she labeled the former soap star a “phony” and “fake bitch” during an emotional lunch with “friend of the Housewives” Nicole James.
“I knew going into that lunch I was very raw, I was very emotional,” said Bergener, explaining that she was reeling from husband James Bergener’s surprise divorce filing at the time she insulted Dubrow behind her back.
“The person I’m really angry with obviously is James, but your name got brought up and it was literally like, ‘F—k phony bulls—t.’ I lashed out,” Noella elaborated, later agreeing with Dubrow that she had expressed “misplaced aggression.”
“I was like, ‘She’s going through a lot. I’m going to let that one go,’” Dubrow told Noella.
But there was one more point of contention to move past: Gina Kirschenheiter’s allegation that Noella said Dubrow was “not to be trusted.”
“Remember how I said Nicole has told me a lot of things about her life? I was the one who called her after she left your house party,” Noella said.
“And then after she spoke with you, everything had changed. And that was a little bizarre to me,” Noella continued, later alleging in a confessional that her good pal James “changed” after a phone call with Heather. (As viewers will recall, the Dubrows immediately forgave a tearful James on site.)
“Heather telling her to drop any conversation of the lawsuit, that’s a little disturbing,” Noella told the camera, implying that James had been forced into silence on the matter.
Tension continued to rise as Noella and Heather’s meeting progressed. At one point, Noella accused Heather of “slamming people against walls” at the aforementioned dinner party, a claim that Heather strongly denied.
“What I’m getting right now is psycho vibes,” Heather lamented in a confessional. “What are you f—king talking about? Am I being punk’d?”
The women concluded their conversation with a mutual understanding that they’re better off not being friends.
“You have a lot going on in your life right now and I don’t take it personally. Having said that though, I’m not sure I’m the right friend for you,” Heather told Noella. “You need to focus on your family and you need to take care of yourself.”
Noella said that a “deep” friendship with Heather isn’t necessary: “I’m very happy keeping social friendships.”
“The Real Housewives of Orange County” airs Wednesdays at 9 p.m. ET.
As fans may know by now, Garfield and Spider-Man alum Tobey Maguire teamed up with current Peter Parker Tom Holland in the 2021 film. However, leading up to the movie’s release, the stars were very tight-lipped about their surprise cameos. In fact, Garfield wouldn’t even tell Stone, who played Gwen Stacy in the Amazing Spider-Man films.
“Emma kept on texting me,” Garfield, who dated Stone for four years, recalled on Josh Horowitz‘s Happy Sad Confusedpodcast. “She was like, ‘Are you in this new Spider-Man film?’ And I was like, ‘I don’t know what you’re talking about.'”
“She was like, ‘Shut up, just tell me!'” Garfield continued, laughing as he told Horowitz he kept up the bit until the film’s release.
So, when the movie came out in December, how did Stone react to Garfield’s lie? As he told Horowitz, “She saw it and she was like, ‘You’re a jerk.'”
At the time, a source told E! News, “There is definitely still love for each other there. They remain close and are on good terms.”

And that sentiment has continued over the years. In a 2016 interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Garfield named Stone as the one actor or actress he’d have with him on a desert island. “She’s all right,” he told the outlet. “She can come.”

Kanye is in the news pretty much every day now due to his seemingly turbulent relationship with his soon to be ex-wife Kim Kardashian. Ye recently took shots at Kims new boyfriend, Pete Davidson, on his latest track with the game “Eazy.”
In the song, Kanye raps: “God saved me from that crash/Just so I could beat Pete Davidson’s ass.”
It seems as if Pete Davidson isn’t taking Ye’s bars lightly. Apparently he has hired more security just in case Kanye wants to make good on his promise.
Actually, according to Rap Radar, friends of Pete Davidson said he’s not worried about Kanye, he’s worried about Kanye fans, and thats why he’s beefed up his security.
“Pete isn’t worried about Kanye, but he is concerned about the massive fanbase that Kanye has. His devoted followers listen to his songs and act upon them. That’s why Pete is now using security,” sources told Rap Radar.
Sources added that “Until recently Pete never had security with him when he was out and about, even when he was engaged to Ariana Grande. But dating Kim (Kardashian) is a totally different level of fame. Pete is now a superstar, which comes with a price. As much as he still wants to be low-key and hang with his friends, the reality of his situation has changed.”
“Pete isn’t taking any chances. Whenever he is out with Kim, they use her security. But now Pete needs his own security when he is out alone,” one of Pete’s friends said. “He is still Pete, but now Pete comes with a 6’1, 220 lbs security guard.”
