Fans of The X Factor are still outraged following last week’s shocking elimination which sent teen favorite Rachel Crow packing!
Judge Nicole Scherzinger felt the most criticism as her decision to allow a voting deadlock when she eliminated Rachel over Marcus Canty ultimately sent Rachel packing.
See, after Rachel and Marcus — who were in the Bottom two last Thursday — sang their last chance songs, judge L.A. Reid picked Rachel to go home. Simon Cowelland Paula Abdul then voted off Marcus. This left the last and deciding vote to Nicole. Nicole, who perhaps failed to realize her duties as a judge, then stated she didn’t want to be the deciding vote and picked Rachel to send the vote into a deadlock.
Unfortunately for 13-year-old Rachel, she ended up having the least amount of votes by the public, and was sent packing. Fans of the show were livid with Nicole for her indecisiveness, that is until TMZ posted a story stating Paula was the one who told Nicole to vote off Rachel.
In a video clip obtained by TMZ, Paula can be heared whispering to Nicole, “Just let it go to a deadlock.” Which is exactly what Nicole did.
Paula is now defending herself, stating her comments were taken out of context during her Monday night appearance on the Jimmy Kimmel show alongside Nicole and the other judges. Though I’m not quite sure how “just let it go to a deadlock” could be taken out of context.
“That’s how they interpreted it,” said Paula of TMZ’s spin on the video footage. “I adore [Nicole] and know what she was feeling like [having to send someone home.]” Nicole added, “In the moment and under pressure, it’s not as easy to say ‘you’re going home.’ I own the decision I made right then.”
As for Rachel, things are looking up for the teen with TMZ reporting Disney is now looking to sign her… and have already set up a meeting to go through a list of opportunities including TV, movies and radio.
Meanwhile, Rachel’s breakdown upon hearing she was eliminated from the show (she started brawling and fell to the ground) now has people questioning whether the show needs to raise its age limit as the younger ones are simply unable to deal with the public scrutiny. Another example of this was 15-year-old Astro’s meltdown a while back upon being told he was in the bottom 2. He first refused to perform before ultimately apologizing.

First, followingNene Leakes’claims that she is “rich… very rich” due to the Trump checks she received from doingCelebrity Apprentice, it now appears she might have fibbed a lot little. A Bravo housewife fibbing? You don’t say!
“While you were running your mouth, I was running to the bank … depositing a Trump check!” NeNe claimed to Sheree Whitfield on the RHOA season opener adding, “I’m rich, bitch!” And to further prove her wealth to millions of strangers viewers, the Nene was seen looking at a $9 million dollar home in Miami.
However, Donald Trump Jr.is now speaking out against Nene’s claims, telling the Wetpaint blog that if the Nene is indeed rich or very rich rather, it is not due to any checks from his dad Donald Trump.
When asked about Nene’s claims of wealth via Donald, Trump Jr. told Wetpaint, “Honestly, I have no idea.” He continued, “All the celebrities on the show play for charity. She received a small appearance fee, sure, but that was it.”
Trump Jr. added: “And as far as I know, she’s not involved with any of our other business or corporations. So I’m not sure what she’s talking about.” Ouch!
So just how much did Nene earn on Celebrity Apprentice? Well that exact amount is unknown but Piers Morgan, who won the 1st season of the show back in 2008, revealed he and his castmates only received about $25,000 each to do the show. So perhaps that amount has since gone up to $9 million in a span of 3 years! Thus making the Nene very rich!
Nene has since backtracked on her “very rich” comments claiming she simply meant she was spiritually wealthy. Uh uh.
Meanwhile, the ratings for the 4th season of the RHOA continues to soar! With over 3.3 million viewers tuning in for Sunday’s episode, the series continues to remain the highest rated Bravo housewives franchise. In fact, the recent episode of RHOA was seen by 1.1 million more viewers than the still very impressive 2.2 million viewers that watched the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Monday night. It appears the RHOA ladies and their manufactured drama are here to stay!
Moving on to tonight’s all new episode of the RHOA! Yes, Bravo has decided to air a new full-episode tonight.
On the 7th episode this season titled ‘Law By Sheree,‘ Shereé is served with legal papers, and turns to Phaedra for representation. The two confidently face Sheree’s ex in court, but to their dismay, he has a trick up his sleeve. Kim and Kroy bring baby KJ home and chaos erupts in the house. On an all-new episode of “Kandi Koated Nights,” Kandi chats with guests Marlo Hampton and baller boyfriend Charles Grant. One of Kandi’s co-hosts asks Charles what it was like to date NeNe and it doesn’t take long for the gossip to spread.

The Insider is confirming that VH1 has greenlit an all new season though no date has been set on when it will return to airwaves. Sources reveal Jackie Christie will be returning despite the fact that her costars have repeatedly stated they want nothing to do with her. Can’t blame VH1 though because Jackie brings the cray and the drama!
Even better, Wacky Jackie is also reportedly working to get her own spinoff show!
“Jackie will have a full plate in 2012 as she prepares to release her new book aimed couples, and how to focus on intimacy. We’re also told she just shot a pilot for BET,” states The Insider.
Interesting. This, however, wouldn’t mark the first time Jackie’s had her own reality show as she and her husband, retired NBA player Doug Christie, actually had a show on BET back in 2006 titled The Christies Committed.

In her Bravo blog, Camille states that Dedra was just being a good friend to her though she later adds that Dedra’s actions did make the situation worse.
“Dedra got involved even though I would never ask her or willingly put her in any position to do so. When Dedra saw everything that was going on she just wanted to help. She is my best friend. She was there for me with the situation with Taylor and has been with me through everything with my divorce and my ongoing custody battle… Dedra got emotional that night watching Taylor’s behavior towards me and thought it was unfair. That’s why she came to my defense,” wrote Camille.
Camille goes on to admit that while Dedra had good intentions, she might have made things worse. “At one point, I remember trying to ‘shush’ Dedra because the more Dedra pushed, it became more apparent that Taylor did not want to participate. It just exacerbated the situation and made it more volatile rather than being helpful. I know Dedra’s intentions were good. I know she wanted to help and was hoping that we could have some resolution… I feel bad she got into the mix, but she got emotional when Taylor made a few snide remarks and was being dismissive of my feelings,” Camille added.
Brandi Glanville also shared her two cents, especially why she decided to kick Taylor out of her party in her Bravo blog. First, Brandi reveals that Taylor came to the party anticipating drama and denies being interested in Kyle’s husband Mauricio.
Brandi writes, “Prior to the party Taylor was already talking about having Kyle as “backup.” I’m not sure what she was anticipating. If Taylor had so many reservations about seeing Camille, and knew full well that Camille was going to be at this small gathering in Malibu, she should have stayed home… Kyle immediately had to insult me, even after I complimented her marriage, by talking behind my back about my dress being slightly sheer. FYI: Kyle I had a super-hot husband for a long time too, and I was still able to take a compliment about his looks and adoration for me when one was given. In no way do I have any interest in Mauricio, or any married man for that matter.”
Brandi also reveals why she didn’t invite Dana Wilkeyand comments on Kyle’s need for attention. She continues, “I invited Kim to my party (not that i thought she would come) as a gesture of peace and a step towards starting over. However, I did not invite Dana because I just wanted to get to know the other women without all her nonsense and name dropping… So I think we were all having a good time, and my friend Linda was trying to teach us to belly dance, but then Kyle has to take over and do the splits and crawl on the ground and generally disrespect what Linda was there to do.”
As for why she decided to kick Taylor out of the party, Brandi states: “Although I didn’t know what the fight was about really at that point, I had bonded with Camille so I felt protective of her… I tried to diffuse the situation to the best of my capabilities at the time, which admittedly were not 100 percent. Someone had to leave. It was my party and Taylor was completely out of control. I wanted Camille to stay and she came with Dedra, so I asked Taylor to go before things got even more out of hand.”
And finally, Star magazine is reporting that Brandi and her ex-husband Eddie Cibrian might be heading for an ugly custody battle. The reason? Brandi, 39, is threatening to have Eddie, 38, jailed because he plans to take their sons Mason, 8, and Jake, 4, to Aspen during Christmas with his former mistress new wife LeAnn Rimes.
Brandi is reportedly claiming the trip violates their custody agreement though it “clearly states that he can’t take them out of the country without permission but can take them out of state,” according to a source. “Eddie feels she can’t be reasoned with,” adds the source.
Moving to tonight’s all new episode of the RHOBH airing on Bravo at 9/8c. On the 15th episode this season titled ‘A Book, a Bachelorette, and a Breakdown,’ it’s a sure bet in Las Vegas when Lisa and Taylor infiltrate Sin City for a bachelorette party. Elsewhere, Adrienne ushers the other ladies to her casino.

With just three weeks until the premiere of The Bachelor season 16, ABC has released the photos of the 25 contestants vying for Ben Flajnik’s heart!
On the season opener, Ben, 29, a winemaker from Sonoma, meets his 25 potential soul mates as he begins his search for “true love.” And in a twist, Ben is taken aback on the first night when Sheryl, a sprite senior citizen, steps out of the limo and confesses she is madly in love with him. But according to the rumor mill, it appears Sheryl was simply there to introduce her granddaughter to Ben.
The ABC press release promises us some more interesting characters such as: “Erika, the young law student, informs Ben that the verdict is in and he is convicted of being sexy. Emily, the germ conscious epidemiologist, doesn’t miss a beat, quickly sanitizing both herself and Ben before grabbing the season’s first kiss. And in a questionable move, Anna decides that Ben should only get a look at her before she struts right by him and straight into the mansion. But what is her real motive? Lindzi arrives on horseback in time to intrigue Ben and capture his attention. And finally, Jenna, a New York blogger, breaking down into tears over early drama with fellow bachelorette Monica.”
The new season of The Bachelor returns to ABC on Jan. 2 (8/7c).

The trade, which occurred late Saturday, will have Lamar playing for the Dallas Mavericks. Khloe, 27, a Los Angeles native, took to her Twitter page to express her mixed emotions about the trade.
“We are all sad but positive energy gets you farther then negative,” tweeted Khloe to a fan, before adding, “I am curious as to how I am the cause for any trade? LOL Some people just say anything behind their computer screens.”
She later tweeted: “I am blessed and happy anywhere as long as I am with my family! God is great!! Blessed beyond words! I love ALL of my dolls!”
The second season of Khloe & Lamar is currently filming so it’s likely we will see this trade drama play out on the show.
In other news, the Kardashians simply refuse to quit their very transparent attempts to villainize Kris Humphries.
The latest is now a publicity stunt claim by Kim Kardashian’slackey friend/publicist Jonathan Cheban to TMZ that he was attacked by a Kris Humphries fan in New York City.
To make this story more believable, Jonathan made certain to set it up rather nicely by first telling TMZ on Friday that he hired extra security because he was being threatened by fans of Kris.
According to Jonathan, the threats began after he threatened to sue Kris for $5 million for apparently calling him “gay” on an upcoming episode of E!’s Kourtney and Kim Take New York. It allegedly led to some Kris “fanatics” threatening Jonathan, who insists he is far from being “gay.”
Last month, camp Kardashian accused Kris of “bullying” Jonathan. “Midway through the season, Kris starts bullying Kim’s best friend, Jonathan Cheban, about his sexuality,” shared a pal of Kim. “Jonathan isn’t gay, but Kris accuses him of being gay and criticizes him for it in a really homophobic way. Jonathan is really upset.” But uh isn’t it a tad homophobic to sue someone for calling you gay???
Fast forward to Sunday (the same day a new episode of Kimmie’s show was set to air on E!) and a photo of Jonathan being attacked with flour by an alleged Kris fan made its way onto TMZ. Sources close to the very heterosexual Jonathan insist it was done by a Kris fan because the flour attacker yelled, “This is for Kris Humphries!” before dousing him with flour.
TMZ adds that the cops were, however, unable to locate the attacker, who was able to get to Jonathan despite the so called extra security he hired. Even better, the attacker managed to mysteriously predict the time and place Jonathan, arguably a Z-list celebrity, would be!
Even more interesting, the photo, which was sent to TMZ did NOT come from a paparazzi agency, meaning it was submitted to TMZ by Jonathan an individual.
Despite the obviously ridic publicity stunt, a rep for Kris tells TMZ, Kris “would never condone hateful and unacceptable behavior like that to anyone, in any situation.”
The good news is in reading the TMZ comments, it appears majority of the readers are NOT buying the story and believe it was all a set up. Smart readers I tell ya! And since when does Kris Humphries have “fanatics”?
The picture of the “flour attack” is below as well as two photos of Kim, and her very authentic and not surgically enhanced at all butt, with Jonathan from 2009!

The 19th season of the Amazing Race ended last night as new winners were crowned following a somewhat dramatic season.
In the end, engaged couple Ernie Halvorsenand Cindy Chiangcame out victorious, crossing the finish line at Atlanta’s historic Swan House to take home the $1 million prize.
Ernie and Cindy’s win was a bit surprising as the couple had spent most of the season being stuck in second place. Front runners, Jeremy Cline andSandy Draghi, who actually started the race in first place ended up coming in second.
Jeremy and Sandy lost their lead in the competition when their clue instructed them to head to a residence once known as “The Dump.” Failing to do their own research, the duo simply relied on a guy in a truck who sent them to the wrong location — a furniture store called “The Dump.” On the other hand, Ernie and Cindy found the right location when they arrived at “The Dump” — an apartment in which “Gone with the Wind” was written.
Project manager Ernie, 29, and his fiancée Cindy, 30, a brand manager, won the competition following a journey that took them through 40,000 miles, four continents, 10 countries and 20 cities.
“This has been the best premarital counseling that you could ever get,” said Cindy following the win. “I can’t think of anything better in life than to have a husband that could be so supportive and caring even when I’m at my low.”
The couple revealed they plan on using the $1 million prize to start a charity to help those in need around the world. Former NFL player Marcus Pollardand his wife Amanicame in third.
