Despite being photographed looking chummy with Matt, 29, both in Texas and California, Taylor, 40, denies there is anything romantic going on. “I am NOT dating anyone from anywhere! Stop the rumors! I am trying to heal with my daughter,” she tweeted. Sources however insist the two have a “friends with benefits” relationship going on.
And in an interview with Access Hollywood, Taylor opened up about finally moving on with her life 2 months after her estranged husband Russell Armstrong took his own life.
“Day by day things are getting easier,” Taylor revealed, adding that she plans to make one of her first major appearances since the August tragedy during a New Year’s Eve Ciroc/Bravo event. “It was something that I had decided to do a while before the tragedy occurred,” Taylor explained. “I wanted to honor that commitment; it was important to me.”
“I do have to get on with my life at some point,” continued Taylor. “At that point, it will have been quite some time. I feel like New Year’s Eve is a time for new beginnings, and a time to set goals for the future. I think that’s a good landmark for me.”
For the time being, Taylor continues to work to raise awareness for domestic violence victims. She alleges Russell was physically abusive to her.
Moving on to tonight’s all new episode of the RHOBH. On the 8th episode of the season titled ‘The Opposite of Relaxation,’ Adrienne hosts a spa get-together at her home, but it’s far from a bubbly affair when twisted sisters Kim and Kyle continue to steam over Brandi’s game-night antics.
Following the cancellation of their wedding last year which was followed by Matt’s arrest for domestic violence (the charges were eventually dropped), the Basketball Wives LA stars have decided to end their relationship and engagement.
Matt confirms the split in a statement released to the LA Times. “I’d like to address the rumors surrounding mine and Gloria’s relationship,” Matt’s statement read. “We have reached the difficult decision of ending our relationship and will be going our separate ways at this time. We will work together to raise our sons and wish each other only the best.”
Matt and Gloria have two kids together — 2-year-old twins Carter Kelly and Isiah Michael. The LA Times also adds that it’s unclear on whether the former couple will be dividing their assets, which includes their Palos Verdes home.
There were signs that this breakup was coming as just weeks ago Gloria admitted her relationship was not perfect, even revealing the two had been in couple’s counseling.
And just last week, a fan tweeted to Matt that he should marry Gloria or else someone else will. Matt responded: “He can have her!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!” Yikes.
Gloria has yet to comment on the split though she did retweet this on Saturday: “If someone is dumb enough to walk away, be smart enough to let them go. Your destiny is never tied to anyone who leaves you.”
A new episode of Basketball Wives LA airs tonight on VH1 at 8/7c.

TELL US – THOUGHTS ON THIS BREAKUP? ARE YOU SURPRISED?
UPDATE – Gloria is now confirming the breakup via her twitter page. She tweeted: “I’m sure you guys are hearing a ton of buzz about Matt and Me breaking up, sorry to say… its true!!!” She later added, “But the most important thing is focusing on my kids and continuing to have a good relationship with their father, thanks for your support!!!”
Former Real Housewives of New Jerseystar Dina Manzois speaking out once again, for the last time according to her, about the recent drama on the show. In a blog posted on her personal website on Sunday night, Dina appears to be taking sides and hint: it ain’t her sister’s.
Dina, found herself the topic of conversation on part II of the RHONJ reunion when her fake BFF Teresa Giudicemade certain to bring up her rift with her sister Caroline Manzo.
On the reunion show, Caroline blamed Teresa for coming between her and Dina. “[Dina] was led to believe a lot of things that are not true. She has a good friend that likes to talk and she says things to her that aren’t true against me and Jacqueline [Laurita],” Caroline stated while looking directly at Teresa. “[Dina] claims I never supported her, and Teresa’s a big part of it. When you get into this world, the fame, your mind isn’t right. You drink the Kool-Aid.”
In her blog, Dina tries to come off as neutral though it’s pretty clear where she stands when she refutes Caroline’s claims that Teresa is to blame for their feud and even strongly insinuates that Caroline, Jacqueline Laurita, and their costars have been ganging up on Teresa.
Dina also confirmed what our sources told us weeks ago which is that she and Teresa are no longer close these days, and are pretty much using each other for press and publicity. Melissa Gorgaconfirmed the same on the reunion last night when she stated Dina and Teresa went 6 months without speaking.
Below Dina reveals she rekindled her friendship with Teresa after Teresa came crying to her following a confrontation with Caroline and Jacqueline during season 4 filming. Dina also points out that Teresa supports all of her charity and TV endeavors… Unlike Caroline?
“It wasn’t until VERY recently that Teresa showed up at my doorstep in tears…apparently Caroline & Jacqueline had a sit down with her on camera (for season 4) and she felt attacked. All I did was console a friend who was obviously shaken. I felt bad for her..even though I had distanced myself from her a bit I was still her friend and she needed me. I did miss my God daughter and the rest of her girls and I’m not proud to say that in staying away from her I had stayed away from them too. Within a few weeks I went to Teresa’s house to spend Audriana’s 2nd birthday with Teresa and her family. No camera’s, no drama just a nice family night the way things used to be…Teresa has been nothing but supportive of Project Ladybug through the years and is extremely supportive of my new show on HGTV. She tweets about it all the time AND watches when she can as a friend should.”
Dina goes on to confirm something else our source told us, which is that she did indeed film with Teresa for the upcoming 4th season despite her claims of wanting nothing to do with the show and all the drama it brings. But get this, Dina claims she filmed with Teresa by accident. Riiiight.
“Teresa then asked me to come to the launch of a new product that’s very important to her. I said yes of course but when I heard camera’s were going to be there I got a bit afraid. I had not attended any other events that were being filmed just to stay away from any potential drama that might go down. I wasn’t invited to any of them either but that’s besides the point lol. Anyway..I was so relieved when I saw on my schedule that I had an HGTV shoot that day and I would have to go late. I thought for sure the camera’s would be gone by then BUT they were not… Teresa and I briefly spoke about her broken relationship with her brother on camera. I gave her my best advice and told her to focus on all the good in her life and if her brother is meant to be a part of her life again he will be one day.”
When it comes to Teresa’s diss of her sister Caroline in her cookbook, Dina claims Teresa only meant it as a joke –
“She mentioned the drama with her and Caroline and I told her that if this is all about a joke in a book (and she assured me it was) that’s not enough for me to hate the mother of my God daughter and a friend of 15 years. Was it necessary to write that stuff in her book? probably not but I don’t think it was written with malice either. We are all guilty of joking a little too much now & then…”
As for her strained relationship with not only Caroline, but also Caroline’s kids, Dina states –
“I feel bad that my relationship with my sister and her family is strained, but I can assure you that one day it will be back to the way it was. I don’t like fighting, I don’t like drama, I don’t like confrontation, I don’t agree with ganging up on someone (one of the other reasons why I left season 2) and I don’t need to share anymore than that. I am not on this show anymore, I didn’t sign on for opening up every aspect of my life to the world for the rest of my life when I signed that Bravo contract.”
Our source insists to us that Dina has called Teresa a troublemaker on more than one occasion but refuses to let go of her friendship with Teresa due to all the press and publicity she gets from Teresa attending her events. In fact, Dina has privately mentioned that she hopes Teresa picks her Lady Bug charity as her official charity during her upcoming stint on Celebrity Apprentice.
And I must say I find it extremely ironic that Dina’s (who claims to be all about peace and no drama) only friend on the show is none other than Teresa Giudice! Let that sink in for a minute!

Report: Jersey Shore’s Ronnie Cheated On Sammi With Bad Girl Club’s Star Morgan!
Jersey Shore fans were not shocked to hear that on-again off-again coupleRonnie Magro and Sammi Giancola broke up again recently, but they might however be surprised at the reason for the break up!
According to TheDirty.com, the same site that broke the recent Ashton Kutcher cheating scandal, Ronnie not only cheated on Sammi but he did it with another reality star!
The site is reporting that Ronnie hooked up with Bad Girls Club season 5 alum Morgan Brittany Osman! If you recall, Morgan made her mark on BGC by getting kicked off during the first episode of her season.
As for what happened between Ronnie and Morgan, “model” Arian Marie, a friend of Morgan’s, tells TheDirty site that Ronnie and Morgan first had sex in Florida in mid September. The two then met up again a week later at a club in Las Vegas. Arian says Ronnie disrespected her by not letting her sit at his table with him and Morgan so she decided to put him on blast on twitter.
Arian tweeted to Sammi on September 25: “So @MTVsammi I thought u should kno that @mtvronnie was f***ing my girl @Morganbritt724 last weekend n now they r at wet. Sorry.”
Ronnie then blew his fuse, like any normal guy would after just being outed to his girlfriend as a scumbag cheater, by making a series of nasty tweets about Arian, all of which he later deleted.
Next thing we know, Sammi stopped following Ronnie on twitter and Ronnie was announcing the two had broken up last week. Here’s to hoping it’s for good this time!
While Sammi has yet to officially comment on the break up, she did tweet – “Thank u to all my fans and supporters u all are amazing! Love u! Xoxo”
As for Morgan, she is keeping mum on the issue though theDirty sites states she “is not proud of her actions.” More photos of Morgan below!

TELL US – THOUGHTS ON THE LATEST? SURPRISED RONNIE CHEATED? DO YOU THINK THEY’RE DONE FOR GOOD THIS TIME?
According to UsWeekly, DeAnna, 29, wed Stephen on Saturday in the Serenbe community of Palmetto, GA.
“We’re so ecstatic to be husband and wife and we’re thrilled to be sharing this day with all our family and friends,” the couple told UsWeekly.
Stephen, a high school teacher, proposed to DeAnna back in May 2010 with a 2.12-carat white-gold ring.
DeAnna starred on the Bachelorette season 4 back in 2008. She and Stephen met in 2009 months after DeAnna called off her engagement to her then fiance/winner of her Bachelorette season Jesse Csincsak. Congrats to the happy couple!
“I regret how I acted. I am very sorry and it is so hard for me to watch the show,” tweeted Kim. She later added: “Thank you for your support!! I of course regret my behavior as well and im sure we both wish we could take it back.”
Also speaking out once again about her mean girl behavior is Kyle, who assures us she is absolutely NOT mean in real life! “The last couple of weeks I look like a mean person and I’m not, but you don’t always see everything and it’s hard to explain to people,” Kyle told Wetpaint. “I can say that when I watch it, I think that’s not me.”
Kyle goes on to reveal that she doesn’t have an issue with Brandi while seemingly blaming Brandi’s friendship with Cedric Martinez(Lisa Vanderpump’s former houseguest) as the reason for treating her the way she did.
“I don’t have anything against Brandi, I think she’s a beautiful girl. I think things are misunderstood about her son going to the bathroom on the grass. I don’t have any sons, but I know that little boys do that,” explained Kyle. “There is just a lot of stuff that people don’t see leading up to Brandi coming into the show, amongst all of us girls talking and knowing she is friends with Cedric,” she added.
As for Brandi, she is now firing back at both sisters in her latest Bravo blog. In the excerpt below, Brandi takes back the crystal meth comment she made about Kim but makes it clear she still believes Kim was under the influence of something –
“No, I do not believe that Kim was on crystal meth, and for that I apologize. I am also not 100 percent sold it was merely anxiety medication. Didn’t she tell Kyle she was inhaling air freshener? So maybe I was wrong: it wasn’t crystal meth, it was Febreeze. Under extreme circumstances I have taken anti-anxiety medication, and it did not require me to make 10 to 15 bathroom trips in the matter of four hours. Just sayin’.”
Brandi goes on to slam both Kyle and Kim for taking her crutches –
“When someone is dealing with an injury or a disability, it’s really funny to hide their means of support, right? It’s really funny to hide someone’s crutches. Isn’t it interesting that Kyle and Kim question my etiquette, morals, and upbringing, and yet they hide an injured woman’s crutches? Hilarious. There are three sides to every story and everyone saw the truth. Kyle’s version was entertaining, wasn’t it? I should have gotten a bowl of popcorn and some red vines because that story was straight out of her imagination.”
And finally, Kim Richards recently celebrated her 47th birthday and posted photos on her personal facebook page! In attendance were all four of her children as well as her sister Kyle. Those photos are below!

The ladies of VH1’s Love & Hip Hop officially return with their second season on November 14 at 9/8c, and this time around, the episodes will be an hour long!
VH1 just released an all new trailer which can only be summed up in three words: Drama! Drama! and more Drama! There are catfights, hair pulling and drink throwing. These ladies make the Basketball Wiveslook like rookies!
Returning for the new season are season 1 cast members Chrissy Lampkin(very long-term girlfriend of rapper Jim Jones), Somaya Reece(“model” and “rapper”), Emily Bustamente (stylist/baby mama to rapper Fabolous) and singer Olivia. There are also two new faces added to the cast: Kimbella Vanderhee (model/girlfriend & baby mama to rapper Juelz Santana) and Yandy Smith (manager of Jim Jones.)
VH1 promises the “one-hour, 10 episode series will follow these six women as they navigate their professional and love lives in a world where opportunity, fame, excitement and money is always in sight … but sometimes just out of reach.”
As for what to expect this season, Chrissy’s still waiting for that wedding to Jim after proposing to him last season. She makes it clear that she’s not willing to wait much longer. After desperately trying to get a real commitment from her son’s father, Fabolous, Emily has finally decided to move out on her own. Olivia‘s new single did not take off despite getting some good early buzz so she is back to hustling harder than ever to launch a solo career and get signed by a major label. And Somaya is also struggling to launch her music career.
In the trailer below, we see Chrissy and newbie Kimbella getting into an all out fist fight, stomping included, after a heated arguement. And Kimbella also reveals to Emily that she dated Fabolous 3 years ago… while Emily was pregnant for him. Yikes!
The trailer is below! Plus photos of newbies Kimbella and Yandy.
