More troubling news concerning Teen Mom star Amber Portwoodjust a week after it was reported the 20-year-old was being investigated by her local police department and child protective services.
UsWeekly is now reporting that Amber’s current beau Chris Hossman, the same one who was featured on the last episode of the show, is a registered sex offender.
Chris was convicted of child molestation charges on March 21, 2005 in his home-state of Indiana. The 5’7″ offender was later released on October 6 the following year.
Chris briefly touched on his troubled past on the show, of course failing to leave out the fact that he is a sex offender. “Well, I got into trouble and I got caught and they put me on work-release,” he explained vaguely on his date with Amber. “It’s like a jail where you get to go out and work and you have to go back.”
Despite being photographed together with ex-fiance Gary Shirely just a week ago, UsWeekly refers to Chris as Amber’s current beau. One can only hope Amber will run as far away as possible from Chris upon hearing this news.

UPDATE – RadarOnline is reporting the Chris Hossman that Amber dated is not a sex offender. Apparently, UsWeekly got his identity mixed up with another person bearing the same name. UsWeekly has since retracted their story.
Tonight is finale night for theReal Housewives of DC, as we get to see the aftermath of the Party Crashers Trashers known as the Salahis.
So what can we expect from the 1 hour, 15 minutes supersized episode of the show? According to a Bravo press release, tonight’s episode will document the aftermath of the White House State Dinner last November and the ensuing media frenzy surrounding the event. The other housewives learn, along with the rest of the country, of the events of that night and the questions swirling around the Salahis. The episode captures the reactions from Stacie, Linda, Cat and Mary as they hear the news, as well as Michael and Tareq’s initial response to the accusations by the media that they crashed the dinner.
Immediately following the show, Michaele And Tareq Salahi will join Andy Cohen on Watch What Happens Live at 10:15 pm ET/PT, where they will likely dodge the easy questions Andy will throw at them.
In other DC news, RadarOnline is reporting today that Tareq’s father Dirgham Salahi, whom he was reportedly estranged from, has passed away. The cause of death of unknown for Dirgham, who was reportedly in his mid-80s.
The Salahis made certain to issue a press release today asking for some privacy in their time of grief. “We appreciate that members of our family are the subject of some media interest for various reasons,” the family said. “But we really need to mourn in private, as grief should never be a spectacle, rather it must be a sacred meditation, and we hope you’ll understand why we will not have the media at any of the rituals celebrating this wonderful man, including any services or receptions that may occur in private.”
Finally, it seems another one of Michaele Salahi’s co-stars along with the rest of the world is having serious doubts about Michaele’s recent announcement that she has had Multiple Sclerosis for 17 years, a claim she never once revealed on the Bravo reality show.
In an interview with FOX news, Cat Ommanney echoed the sentiments of her co-star Lynda Erkiletian when she reveals her doubts about Michaele’s claims. “We were wondering whether she meant BS rather than MS. MS is a very serious disease and I wouldn’t want to mock that, it just seems ironic. Every day they seem to wake up in bed with each other and say ‘what kind of stunt shall we pull today?’ I don’t know if it is all truthful, or if it’s a cry wolf situation,” said Cat.
Cat also reveals she will not be returning for season 2 if the Salahis are still on the show. “I would think about doing a second season, but I definitely wouldn’t if they were involved, nothing in life is worth that kind of detriment to my soul,” she said.
Multiple media outlets have reported Bravo does not plan on having the Salahis back for the next season, though Bravo has yet to confirm the news.

RadarOnline is reporting that the part time porn star sex tape star has filmed her first music video. The video, which was shot last week, will reportedly show a different, emotional side to Danielle as it was filmed on location at a woman’s shelter in northern New Jersey.
“Danielle talked to all the women. It was a very emotional day,” a source told RadarOnline. “She was so touched she even said she was going to send a box of things to the women at the shelter that they can all use.”
The video is for Danielle’s new single called “Cry.” The plot of the video will have “an actor that plays Danielle’s love interest and she goes through the emotions of a woman in an abusive relationship,” the source explained. “These are real circumstances these women go through. In one scene, Danielle makes dinner for him and he complains and she turns to look back at him because she’s afraid he’s going to hit her and then she runs to lock herself in the bathroom.”
Danielle posted on her twitter that the video premiere will announced in the next couple of weeks.
“[Albie] is only 24, but you never know,” Caroline, 49, told PEOPLE. “Christopher’s only 21, so that’s stretching it a little bit. They’re both good catches in my mind, so either one works.” Asked why her boys are good catches, the Mama Bear replied: “They’re good boys. They’re hard workers, they’re honest. We taught them from a young age how to treat a lady, how to respect a woman, how to be a good father, husband, provider, friend.”
And finally, RadarOnline reported this week that Ashley Holmes, who might or might not be appearing on the next season of the NJ Housewives, was seen hooking up with The Spin Crowd’sJonathan Cheban. He’s straight?
According to Radar, Jonathan and the newly single Ashley/daughter of Jacqueline Laurita, were seen locking lips this week in NYC. “They were in the corner making out,” said a source. “They were all over each other.”
And it seems Jacqueline might not be too pleased with the new relationship as Jonathan tweeted to her this week, wondering why she hadn’t been responding to him.

Following her early departure, yet again, on last week’s episode of Jersey Shore, 24-year-old Angelina Pivarnick is now speaking out on her time on the show.
In a new interview with UsWeekly, the Staten Island Dump reality star reveals she was “bullied” by her co-stars. “They never gave me a second shot,” Angelina says. “Just because you’re celebrities now and I left the first season does not mean I should be treated badly. It’s sad how people change.”
Apparently, things got so bad for Angelina, to the point that she is now seeing a therapist as she feels she was made a scapegoat for all the underlying problems in the house.
“I was bullied to the fullest sense,” she says. “Mike [The Situation] called me a dirty hamster, but I cleaned that house up and down. MTV never showed that. Snookiwould call me a whore. Mike and Vinny would call me fat… I would go in the bathroom and cry.”
Angelina, who is now back living in Staten Island with her mom and sister, reveals she can no longer watch the show. “It bothers me hearing the names they call me, and that it looks like I’m the backstabber,” she tells Us. “My head is really f–ked up; I see a therapist, I cry a lot. It’s probably going to take me a year to get over this. My mom got bleeding ulcers from the stress — it’s hard to watch her daughter go through what I did.”
As for her current relationship status with Jose, you know, the guy that got her a fossil watch, Angelina reveals he was just using her to get on TV. “When I came home,” she says. “I saw he wrote on Facebook, ‘I can’t wait to be on MTV!’ He was in it to be on TV! He called me the other day and said, ‘We could have been the next Sammi and Ronnie.’
A new episode of the Jersey Shore airs tonight on MTV. On the 11th episode of this season titled “Girls Like That,” Snooki and J-Woww decide to make amends with Sammi; Vinny pursues two groups of girls; and Mike’s antics annoy Snooki. It airs 10/9c.

“This couldn’t have come at a more perfect time for me to just get out of my life [in LA] … I’m single and I keep on saying, ‘I’m single for the first time’ but I never have really given it a shot to be single,” she toldRyan Seacrest on his radio show. “I tried and I tried to play that role but I really wasn’t single.”
Kim intends on keeping things casual saying, “I’m down for some hookups.” And as of those romance rumors with rapper Kanye West (the two were photographed together when he paid a visit to her DASH store in NYC this week), Kim states she is not dating him.
“He came by the store. We wanted to show him our new designs of the store,” she explained before Ryan jokingly asked her about checking out Kanye. “I was not checking out his ass,” Kim added, “Don’t start any rumors!”

Following his surprise elimination on last week’s Survivor:Nicaragua episode, Jimmy Johnson is now speaking out about his time on the show in a new interview.
The 67-year-old former NFL Coach from Islamorada, Fl discusses the hardships of doing the show at this age, what he would have done differently, and why is has no qualms about being voted off in a new interview with PEOPLE. Excerpts from Jimmy’s interview below -
Could you have changed the outcome?
I went in from day one saying, “Listen, I’m not a threat.” Feeling like I wasn’t one and thinking I’d convinced them I wasn’t, I didn’t seek out a strong alliance. Looking back on it, I probably could have gotten something together with the women. And maybe Tyrone that would have allowed me to go further in the game.
Do you understand Marty’s desire to get you out?
I didn’t know until watching the episode that Marty thought I was such a big threat. I guess I understand it but again I really truly didn’t believe people would give me a million.
Did you believe Marty would share the idol to better the team?
Absolutely not. No one bought that.
You repeatedly said Survivor was more stressful than coaching a Super Bowl team. Why?
The conditions are a lot better as a Super Bowl coach. Before the game, you have plenty of food and clean water and you get a good night’s rest in a bed. You have toilets and clean clothes. We had none of that in Nicaragua. So, not only are you doing all the physical activities of challenges and building shelter and dealing with the stress and strategy of the game, but you are doing it sleep deprived on an empty stomach. And I did it at 67 years old. Had I been out there at 27, I think it would have been less difficult.
Moving on to tonight’s episode of the show, a CBS press releases states, “One castaway works hard to prove his worth and take control of his tribe, but his efforts rub some tribemates the wrong way. The hunt for the hidden immunity idol widens the rift between two castaways at the La Flor camp, triggering a venomous fight. Meanwhile, a valuable secret is revealed that solidifies a powerful alliance.”
The rift between the two castaways refers to Naonka and Kelly B’s struggle for the immunity idol on the last episode. Things get worse tonight as other tribe members speak out against Naokna, who eventually declares war on her tribe.

Will she or won’t she? Is the question when it comes to Bethenny Frankelhaving a second baby.
The Real Housewives of New York City star stated a few months ago that she was likely done having children, but in a new interview with OK magazine, Bethenny, 39, mentions having another baby is still an option with hubby Jason Hoppy.
“Jason wants to have another baby, and I’m not sure, so the breast pump and the newborn clothes are in purgatory for who knows what will happen next,” she says.
She adds, “I’m almost 40, and it’s a decision that we’re talking about. It’s a conversation that needs to be had. I have a five-month-old baby, so I haven’t made that decision yet.”
Bethenny, who shares that 5-month-old Bryn has began rolling over, also states that she is lucky to have Jason as her partner. “Jason does everything,” she says. “He changes diapers, he watches her. We both do everything. I was told before I got into a relationship that if you want to have a child, you need a good partner. You could do it alone – I was prepared to do it alone – but it does help. There’s a lot to do, and you want someone who cares as much as you do about your child, so that’s the deal.”
In other NYC news, just days after Life&Style broke the news that Ramona Singer physically attacked a producer on the Real Housewives of NYC, UsWeekly is also confirming that Ramona did indeed hit the producer, except it wasn’t a slap but rather a punch!
“She was furious and felt like the producers were ganging up on her,” says one insider. “She literally lost her mind.” Ramona, 53, was reportedly shooting with Sonja Morgan and Alex McCord when she lost it.
“No one is really sure what exactly spurred her craziness,” a second source tells US. “But she got herself worked up over filming this scene and one thing led to another, and she punched the producer. Literally.”
With only one month into shooting, the producers are now trying “to mediate the situation so the cast all stays filming.” And somewhere in NYC, Kelly Bensimon is celebrating no longer being the lone crazy pants on the show.
Teen Mom star Maci Bookout graces this week’s cover of OK magazine under the heading – “Back With Ryan!”
In a new interview with the mag, Maci and her son’s father Ryan Edwards discuss reuniting and co-parenting Bentley. According to OK, Maci has broken up with her boyfriend Kyle King, 22, while Ryan has also broken up with his girlfriend Kathryn — who has appeared with him on the show.
“I’m taking a break. I guess she wanted more,” Ryan tells OK! about his break up, adding that he and Maci have talked about getting back together. “Maci calls to this day and wants to work it out,” Ryan, 21, reveals. “Everybody says that [she’s still in love with me].”
In other Teen Mom news, Amber Portwoodalso graces this week’s cover of US Weekly magazine (Why are these “teen moms” being rewarded with magazine covers?) and discusses her violent attack on ex-fiance Gary Shirley in a recent episode.
“A lot has changed,” says Amber, now in couple counseling with Gary. “I haven’t hit him since that fight.” As reported last week, Amber is currently being investigated by her local police department and child protective services following the domestic violence episode.
“When I see myself in that position, it really opens my eyes,” Amber says. “I want to stop it, because I don’t want to be like that.” Amber reveals she’s working with a counselor “on how to calm down when things happen,” she reports. “We are getting close to finding a solution…If I get mad, I always try to think about Leah and how an [outburst] will affect her.”
As for her current relationship status with Gary (RadarOnline reported last week that the two were back together), Amber says things are up in the air with the two. “I do love this man…but if we keep fighting then we can’t move forward,” she adds.
