Wonderwall 2hrs ago
Grab some popcorn, sit back and enjoy reliving the most outrageous scandals on Bravo's "Real Housewives" franchises! The fierce and fabulous wives featured on the reality TV series -- which are shot in multiple cities across America -- have been seriously stirring the pot for more than a decade. With enough cringe-worthy controversy for a full-length film, Wonderwall.com is rounding up the biggest, baddest scandals in "Housewives" history, starting with the latest -- the saga of the self-proclaimed pretty mess herself, Erika Jayne. Erika (aka Erika Girardi) made a name for herself on "The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" thanks to her extravagant lifestyle (full-time glam team, anyone?), but in 2020, Bravo fans were shocked to learn that immense wealth might have been a facade. In November 2020 it was announced she was divorcing lawyer husband Tom Girardi after 21 years of marriage, and a month after that, they were hit with a lawsuit accusing them of embezzling settlement funds from plane crash victims related to one of Tom's cases. In the wake of this big news, more and more about their finances came to light -- including Erika's demand for spousal support, Tom's filing asking the court to block her request for support, and the revelation that Tom told the court he only had "a couple thousand" dollars in his personal bank account. On top of the shocking financial news, Erika also accused Tom of infidelity, posting screenshots on Instagram of text messages implying he had an affair with Judge Tricia A. Bigelow.

20 must-read health books
The Health section of your local bookstore or online book retailer looks different than it did a couple of decades ago, when titles like Food-Free at Last: How I Learned to Eat Air or The South Beach Diet Supercharged were popular picks. Still today, authors—including would-be physicians, B-list celebs and underqualified fitness experts—dole out “health advice,” trying to convince readers that running themselves ragged with dieting and strenuous exercise will make them thinner, prettier, and happier. In fact, it has had an adverse effect, especially on women. The cruel dieting culture, incessant calorie counting, and little to no representation of health experts from diverse communities, along with the unrealistic standards set by the beauty and fashion industries, have led to eating disorders and severe mental health issues. Today, coupled with wellness, the topics covered in health and well-being books focus more on making healthy choices daily, keeping active, practising self-care, and being mindful of our mental health. Thanks to the body positivity movement, and some notable influencers in this space, we know that healthy bodies come in all shapes and sizes. This is also a time when we are hearing from more underrepresented voices in this space, making health advice and wellness tips more inclusive and relevant for all. Start the new year off with motivation, stories, and advice on how to live a healthier, happier life that works for you. Get moving by adding these 20 must-read health books to your cart.
