It seems like every single Real Housewives city is getting a major facelift!
However, just because she is done with RHOA doesn't mean she's done being a Bravolebrity!

Now, it looks like the long-running daytime talk show could be eyeing another permanent co-host!
It's been reported that the hit ABC show is considering frequent guest co-host Molly Sims to join the panel full time!
This addition would add some stability to the show, which has received criticism for relying heavily on guest co-hosts in the last couple of seasons. But who would the Las Vegas star replace?
Moderator Whoopi Goldberg and Raven have contracts for next season, but recently added co-hosts Nicolle Wallace and Rosie Perez don't have deals locked in just yet — and according to sources, at least one of them is not expected to return next season!
So that means if Sims gets the coveted co-host gig, she would most likely be replacing Wallace or Perez!

One thing we love about Whoopi Goldberg is that she's NEVER afraid to speak her mind — even when the subject is a bit controversial!
Adam Scott and Jason Schwartzman swung by The View this morning to talk a bit about their upcoming movie The Overnight!
But before they left, Whoopi decided to grill Jason on his longtime collaborator, director Wes Anderson!
The 59-year-old EGOT winner asked Schwartzman to pass along her résumé to the director, teasing:
"I want to do this right because I love all the Wes Anderson movies that you starred—like, almost all of them, from Grand Budapest Hotel and Rushmore and all of those. So, I noticed there's not a lot of folks of color and I thought I would like to give you my résumé to give to Wes Anderson just to let him know I'm available."
Dang! Was Whoopi just kidding? Raven-Symoné seemed to think so, as she added:
"She won't do full-frontal nudity."
To which Whoopi actually said she would! Ha!
Srsly though, the poor representation of minorities in film really is a problem, as last year's Oscar nominations were a pretty glaring example.
But if we look at last year's nominees for Best Picture, the ONLY movie other than Selma to have a minority actor in a starring role was actually Anderson's Grand Budapest Hotel (Tony Revolori played main character Zero)!
Even in his first film, Bottle Rocket, Wes had Mexican actress Lumi Cavazos in one of leading roles as Inez! Brazilian musician Seu Jorge acted in and provided a TON of the music for The Life Aquatic, and American Indian actor Waris Ahluwalia was featuring in both The Darjeeling Limited and Grand Budapest!
That being said, Anderson classics Rushmore and Moonrise Kingdom are comprised of almost ENTIRELY white casts!
Minority representation in film is DEFINITELY big issue in Hollywood right now! But do U agree with Whoopi that Wes Anderson is one of the directors to blame??

After a gazillion appearances as a guest host, ABC has finally hired Raven-Symoné as a full-time co-host!
The former That's So Raven star has co-hosted with Whoopi Goldberg and co. 37 times already, so we figure it's about darn time!
But Raven was far more gracious when she made the announcement on Wednesday. She said:
After 27 seasons on the air, something apparently has to give!
In the upcoming season of The Simpsons, it looks like Homer and Marge's marriage is headed for the rocks — Ay caramba!
Al Jean, the executive producer of the longtime animated series, told Variety about a few things to expect in the upcoming season. Though we already learned that Sideshow Bob will FINALLY get to kill off Bart this season — but only in the Halloween special so not for real-sies — we got a few more details on what's going to happen in year 27.
He says of the upcoming season:
Praise the lord.
In a move we're fairly certain nobody was asking for, Disney announced on Wednesday that they will be rebooting Sister Act for the modern day.
The Whoopi Goldberg movie about a singer masquerading as a nun to escape a murderer was a huge hit back in 1992, but we're not sure if this particular franchise needed to be remade.
We already had to sit through Sister Act 2: Back In The Habit as well as a Broadway musical, but who knows, maybe this new sequel will be worth it.
There's no word about casting or filming, but we'd love to see Kathy Najimy, Maggie Smith, and Whoopi get back to their old antics — Maybe they could all be cardinals running around making a mockery of the papal duties… No?
Plus, this is probably the reason that Tron 3 got cancelled last week — Ouch!
Are U even slightly interested in Sister Act 3??
We all knew there were problems on the show but THIS is ridiculous!
Over the past few years, The View has made quite a few headlines but not necessarily for all the right reasons. In a recent piece by Vanity Fair, they recapped some of The View's problems with production, and seemingly hung out some of their dirty laundry to dry!
Many people are familiar with Rosie O'Donnell's feud with Elizabeth Hasselbeck as well as problems with the show's crew, one instance with a senior producer escalated to the point where the the women had to be separated. But the Vanity piece also reveals that at one point Rosie was being considered for her own talk-show on ABC up until she made the comments:
"In America, we are fed propaganda and if you want to know what's happening in the world, go outside of the U.S. media because it's owned by four corporations. One of them is this [Disney/ABC]."
As you can OBVIOUSLY guess, her home network, ABC, was none too pleased with these remarks and the supporters of the idea reportedly backed off.
Along the same lines of tensions with execs, Whoopi Goldberg reportedly
