The newly engaged Tamra Barney is now free to move on to her next marriage as Radar Online is reporting her divorce from ex, Simon Barney has been finalized!

According to Radar, the divorce of the Real Housewives of Orange County star was finalized on October, 12, 2011 with a judge ruling neither party has to pay child or spousal support.

The divorce document states “neither party shall pay child support to each other. The parties shall each be responsible for the needs of the minor children during their respective period of physical custody.”

The document adds that the two “do hereby waive, now and forever, any and all rights to spousal support and/or maintenance, both temporary and permanent and further do hereby release the other from any and all claims past, present and future for spousal support and/or maintenance.”

As for the division of their errr assets, Simon gets to keep his 2002 Harley Davidson, several bank accounts and a 1987 Ferrari, while Tamra Sue got to hold on to her post separation income and the rights to her website.

The judge also ruled that the two are not allowed to make negative remarks “about the other party in the presence of any child of the marriage or to the public.”

Tamra and Simon were married for 11 years and have 3 children together. As reported this week, Tamra recently got engaged to her beau Eddie Judge! No word yet on when the two plan to tie the knot.

Moving on to Jesus Barbie a.k.a Alexis Bellino, who is now speaking out about her religion and her looks! In an all new interview with the Huffington Post’s Naughty But Nice Rob, Alexis fires back at critics who question her religious values, you know, when you take into consideration the way she dresses, speaks, acts, etc!

“I don’t walk around with my Bible, but I am religious,” Alexis states. “I believe in Jesus Christ and that he is our savior and I am vocal about it. Sometimes I look back and think, ‘Would I have been so vocal about it if I had known about the backlash I would have gotten?’ I take in the critics and if it gets bad, I just think about a scripture.”

It gets even better,  Alexis believes she has been able to lead other women back to God due to the way she dresses! “I have brought so many girls back to the Lord because they didn’t realize you could go to church and dress like this,” adds Alexis.

Alexis also defends her choices to get plastic surgery, most recently a nose job that did not take! “Vicki [Gunvalson’s] been on [the show] for seven years,” she says. “If you go back and watch the first season, she looks nothing like it and acts different. We all have had work done! Are you kidding me? Anyone who says differently is lying.”

TELL US – THOUGHTS ON TAMRA’S DIVORCE SETTLEMENT & SIMON NOT HAVING TO PAY CHILD SUPPORT? WHAT DO YOU MAKE OF ALEXIS’ COMMENTS? SHOULD A CHRISTIAN DRESS THE WAY SHE DOES?

According to a shocking new report by Radar Online, a source is revealing that when Taylor Armstrong claimed in her memoir that her deceased husband Russell Armstrong once tried to drown her, she was telling the truth. And in fact a police report about the incident was filed.

Radar Online reveals the incident occurred back at the home of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills stars a few years ago and names two witnesses to the alleged abuse. Those two are Taylor’s friends – Jennifur Diamond and her then husband Mark Alsentzer.

A source reveals the drama began when Russell flew into a rage and injured Mark. Russell then left the group, after which Taylor begged Mark not to press charges. However, Russell was eavesdropping on the group’s conversation and heard Taylor state: “Just take care of Kennedy if anything happens.”

Upon hearing this, Russell allegedly jumped out of the bushes and lost it. “Russell was in a frenzy, and he had a wild look in his eyes. He hit Mark, and threw Jennifur, her dog, and Taylor in the swimming pool and tried to drown Taylor. Taylor thought she was going to die as Russell held her under the water,” a source reveals.

“Mark and Jennifur were able to pull Russell off of her and probably saved her life. The cops were called and a police report was filed. At that point Taylor hadn’t been receiving any therapy, and she begged and pleaded with her friends not to press charges. Taylor had to cover her neck for several weeks because of the choke marks. She even had trouble speaking because of Russell’s strength when he tried to choke her,” continues the source.

“Mark got 16 stitches and had work done on his teeth because of what Russell did,” the insider said. “I can’t be sure that Russell gave them money to stay quiet, but he definitely gave them money to cover the expenses of Mark’s medical stuff which was somewhere around $12,000.”

Have a few questions about this report, the first being, why hasn’t this police report been made public? And was the police report only a complaint about Russell injuring Mark? Because if his alleged attempt to drown Taylor was reported, surely that would have led to Russell’s arrest and some serious charges.

Moving on to a lighter topic,  Brandi Glanville, age 39 (she looks younger no?) shares her beauty and plastic surgery secrets with Shape magazine! Below are excerpts from Brandi’s interview –

SHAPE: You’re in such amazing shape but also such a busy mom. What’s your workout regimen like and how do you find time to stay in shape?

BG: After I drop my kids off at school, I head right to my Pilates trainer. I’ve had the same one for nine years! I started with her when I was pregnant with [my son] Mason. Before that, I had never even really worked out before! Once I got pregnant, everything kind of changed. Now I do three times a week and besides that, I stay active by going on bike rides with my kids, walking the dogs, or going for a hike near my home. I can’t even think about stepping foot on a treadmill!

SHAPE: You also have amazing skin. What’s your skincare regimen?

BG: I get a spray tan every week. I also have issues like adult acne and Melasma (patches of skin discoloration) since I’ve had my kids, so I try everything—lasers, photo facials—and I wear hats all the time to protect myself from sun.

SHAPE: It seems there would be a lot of pressures in Beverly Hills to always look perfect. How do you deal with that?

BG: Having grown up modeling, I’m very self-aware of my physical appearance. It’s hard to grow older, especially in this town where everyone is perfect! They’re all 20 years old and gorgeous and I’m now in same dating pool as them, yikes, it’s really hard! This town makes you insecure. And yes, I’ll cop to a few plastic surgery procedures like Botox and fillers. I think everyone should do what makes them feel good but remember: Less is more!

Brandi was also asked about how she deals with negativity from some fans, to which she responded: “People have said horrible things like I’m ‘plastic’ and I’m a bad mom. I think after three years of hearing it I have just developed a thick skin. I think it’s human nature, and I know what they say isn’t true so I’ve learned to not take it to heart.”

TELL US – THOUGHTS ON THE REPORT ABOUT RUSSELL AND TAYLOR? DO YOU BELIEVE IT? AND THOUGHTS ON BRANDI’S INTERVIEW?


Some good news for Amber Portwood,the Teen Mom was able to catch a break in court yesterday.

As reported, Amber, 21, was in hot water over failing to provide a urine sample for her mandatory daily drug testing. In fact, Amber spoke to E! News, denying she failed to take the drug test, while other sources stated Amber did show up to be tested but waited over an hour and simply could not go.

“I would be in jail if I skipped” Amber told E!. “Honestly, I don’t give a s–t what people are saying…I’m doing what I have to do…they are not a concern of mine.”

Luckily for Amber, she faced a judge yesterday who chose to punish her by tackling on an extra 30 days of daily drug testing instead of sending her to prison. In addition to that, she is also required to re-read the drug court handbook and write a 500-word report on what is expected of her. For realz!

TMZ adds, as well as missing a drug test, Amber also failed to attend one of her AA meetings which is also a major no-no. Here’s to hoping Amber can finally get it together, though, something tells me…

Moving on to other troubled Teen Mom star, Jenelle Evans,who has also had issues with drugs as she is currently on probation for a previous drug violation.

According to the latest issue of Star magazine, Jenelle, 20, is still abusing drugs. The source? Her former boss James Duffy, who she is still engaged with in a legal war.

James told Star that he witnessed Jenelle drop an Ecstasy pill in early November, and saw her drunk and taking shots of E&J Brandy on a different night. “Around 2 or 3 a.m. that night, she snorted something in front of me,” said James, adding that Jenelle also told him she does drugs with her troubled on-and-off boyfriend Kieffer Delp. “When they got ‘down,’ they would snort Adderall ‘to pick them up,’” he said. “Jenelle did so much Adderall that her heart was pounding really hard, causing her to freak out.”

So, how is Jenelle passing her urine tests if she’s still on drugs? Well according to James, “Jenelle explained to me that the way she does drugs is that it only stays in your system for two to three days. She’ll do them on Friday knowing that she has to come in and do the test on Monday, because they schedule the days a week before.”

Mob Wives Chicago
Following the major success of Mob Wives, it only makes sense that the VH1 network would expand the series with a spinoff!

Herein comes Mob Wives Chicago, which is set to début this Spring on the network! Even better, VH1 has also released the names and biographies of the five cast members.

The cast is pictured above, via the Chicago Suntimes, from left to right: Leah DeSimone, Renee Fecarotta Russo, Pia Rizza, Christina Scoleri and Nora Schweihs.

The press release states, Mob Wives Chicago will follow “the lives of five women allegedly connected to “The Outfit,” Chicago’s version of the Mob, as they bear the cross for the sins of their Mob-associated fathers. With lives that are right off the pages of a story book, each woman has chosen her own way to live her life in the city that was once home to Al Capone, sometimes in spite of and many times because of who her father is.”

So, what can we expect on this new series? According to VH1, “these women battle their friends, families and each other as they try to do what’s best for themselves and their children. But ultimately, it is the ghost of their fathers they battle, living and dead, as they try to overcome and persevere in the face of these men’s notorious legacies.”

Below are more cast photos and bios of each lady!

When most heard the very strict rules and guidelines laid out for Amber Portwood,via her probation, many assumed she would definitely break one of the rules at one point or another, but very few could have predicted she would be screwing up this quickly.

Just two weeks after a judge finally released her from jail to go live with her grandparents, the Teen Mom star has already broken one of her probation terms by failing to take a drug test.

According to TMZ, Amber, 21, has been doing great since her release, until Monday when she failed to provide a urine sample for her mandatory daily drug testing.

And those familiar with the law will tell you that a failure to provide a sample, automatically counts as a failed drug test, which could mean BIG trouble for Amber.

She was sentenced to serve five years in prison back in January for a drug conviction, with the judge suspending her sentence as long as she followed a very long list of rules and guidelines, which included home detention, a curfew, requirement to get a regular job, and enrollment in a halfway drug house.

Amber is due in court today for her weekly check-in, during which, she will be at the mercy of the judge. Legally the judge could decide to have her begin serving her five-year prison sentence, though that is unlikely to happen.

TELL US – THOUGHTS ON THE LATEST? ARE AMBER’S PROBATION RULES TOO STRICT? SURPRISED SHE’S SCREWING UP THIS EARLY?


Following her disastrous season on the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, the key question remains is Kim Richards planning to return to the Bravo hit series?

Well according to a new report today, Kim, who did a recent stint in rehab, is healthier than ever and ready for her comeback! Sources close to Kim tell Radar Online she has made great progress since leaving rehab in January. “Kim’s post-rehab transformation is awesome,” the source states. “Since she got out of rehab she’s stronger and spunkier.”

Even better for Kim, age 48, she has now cut off all times with former boyfriend Ken Blumenfeld, who some had described has being controlling. “Kim is single now, and she’s good being single,” the insider reveals. “She wants someone in her life who is going to be a positive influence, and so she’s going to stay single until she finds the right guy.”

And, while her family is reportedly begging her not to return to the RHOBH, the source reveals Kim would like to return to the show. “Kim wants to return for the next season. and while there are a lot of people around her telling her not to she really liked being on the show and being a Housewife.”

TAYLOR ARMSTRONG HAS SOME ADVICE FOR CHRIS BROWN & RIHANNA!

Here’s to hoping if Kim does return, she’s sober and healthy. On one hand, I would like to see her return, especially to redeem herself following last season,  but then again there’s always that risk of what if she relapses during filming. As we reported yesterday, filming on the new RHOBH seasons typically start during spring.

Moving on to Kim’s sister, Kyle Richards, who’s dishing on her niece Paris Hilton, the hardships of doing a reality show, and also the dramatic reunion in regards to why she didn’t come to Lisa Vanderpump’s defense, in a new interview with TheCWdc.com.

First Kyle, age 42, explains why the viewers have yet to see Paris on the RHOBH. “Paris was doing a show at the time,” explains Kyle. “There was a contractual thing that they weren’t allowed to come on our show and vice versa. Which we thought it would work out, cause its Oxygen and it’s all underneath the same umbrella, but they didn’t allow it.”

Kyle also adds that she now has a “newfound respect” for Paris who she turned to for advice on how to deal with the backlash that comes from doing a reality show. “Once I got into [reality TV], I turned to her and said I’m really having a hard time with this. I don’t think I can do this anymore. She said this should be a fun time in your life, good or bad you can’t listen to all things people say to you,” states Kyle.

Kyle goes on to talk about the dramatic season two reunion and why she failed to come to her “friend” Lisa‘s defense. “People were also really upset that I didn’t come to Lisa’s defense with the Adrienne situation about the radar online comment but I was in a very bad position. Because I am friends with all of them and Mauricio and I are very good friends with Adrienne and Paul. That’s the number one thing,” explains Kyle. Me thinks fans were also upset because at times, Kyle also appeared to join in on the attack.

Kyle continues: “And number two, Adrienne was not making it up that she was told that. Even though it wasn’t true, they (radar online) owe everyone an apology because it caused that whole thing. What was I going to do? I cannot get involved in every fight. I got a lot of comments from people asking why didn’t I step in? And the next week when I defended Taylor, people said why didn’t you stay out of it, it’s none of your business. You’re damned if you do, damned if you don’t in reality television. You can’t make everybody happy. I know who I am and that’s all that matters.”

And finally, Kyle describes being on a reality show as “very difficult.” She adds, “It is extremely bitter at times. It’s very difficult. If you would have told me it was difficult being on a reality show before I did this, I would think oh please, give me a break how hard could that be? But it is very difficult. People are judging you based on snippets of our lives and they’re not always privy to the back-story, which leads to certain things.”  Even though they’re “snippets” they still tell a lot about who you are. Just sayin’ Kyle.

In today’s Jersey Shore news, Snooki is finally confirming the world’s worst kept secret.

Just as reported, the MTV reality star graces the latest cover of UsWeekly magazine to reveal she is indeed pregnant AND engaged!

Speaking to UsWeekly with her now fiance Jionni LaValle, Snooki aka Nicole Polizzi confirms she is 15 weeks pregnant . “I have different priorities now,” says Snooki who is mostly known for being a drunken hot mess party girl! “I don’t care what anybody else thinks. As long as I know I’m ready and he’s ready.” Jionni, 24, chimes in, “We are not going to screw this up.”

Snooki, 24, reveals that she discovered she was preggos “right after New Year’s.” Her first thought? “‘S–t, I’ve been drinking!’ I was worried. It was New Year’s Eve and we were in Vegas, so I did go crazy.” she admits.

Reports of Snooki expecting first came out early last month when Star magazine broke the news. Snooki immediately denied the report, but two weeks ago the NY Post confirmed she was pregnant and had inked a deal with UsWeekly magazine to reveal the news.

You can read more about Snooki’s pregnancy in the latest issue of UsWeekly magazine. No word yet on the sex of the baby or when we can expect a wedding.

Snooki also reveals to the mag why she initially lied about being pregnant. Sources told TMZ last week that she lied because she did not want to jinx herself before she inked a deal the three-month mark, which is understandable. Snooki and Jionni have been together for a year and a half.
