"Eighty-five percent of the women around here have had breast implants," says Kimberly, matter-of-factly.

The singing vegetarian wanted nothing to do with the backwoods ducks. When Morrissey was scheduled to appear on Jimmy Kimmel's late-night show last month along with the cast of A&E's "Duck Dynasty," the '80s cult rocker issued an ultimatum: Boot the "animal serial killers," as he described the Southern family that made its fortune selling duck-hunting paraphernalia, from the guest list or he would walk.

"The indictment returned today alleges the Guidices lied to the bankruptcy court, to the IRS and to a number of banks," U.S. Attorney Paul J. Fishman said Monday in a statement . "Everyone has an obligation to tell the truth when dealing with the courts, paying their taxes and applying for loans or mortgages.

If reality TV remains a fungus on our democracy, I have a persistent itch for "The Real Housewives of Orange County." The show, brought back by Bravo for a second season that debuts tonight, was down-marketed out of the gate as a kind of Orange County Festival of Breasts, complete with Hummer rides, mansion tours and face-painting that involves needles and toxins as opposed to brushes and watercolor.

The cast members of "The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" insist they're not ladies who lunch. Ignore the fact that they're at Villa Blanca in Beverly Hills shortly before noon poking at platters topped with ahi tuna tartare, crispy rock shrimp, and smoked salmon pizza. "This is a rarity. Really, it is," said Lisa Vanderpump-Todd, one of the newest inductees to the "Housewives" franchise who also happens to own the restaurant. "We're really not women who lunch. I mean, look at these ladies.

The thrills of the "Real Housewives" series on Bravo have little to do with geography. Women of arriviste position and little self-regard are capable of internecine warfare regardless of whether they live in New York, Atlanta or Orange County. Outburst-inclined women: Move freely!
