Shayne Lamas

Former Bachelor winner Shayne Lamas is not only revealing the sex of her baby but also the shocking name she plans on naming the unborn tot!

Shayne, who is married to Nik Richie of TheDirty.com, confirms to E! News that she is having a girl! But here comes the shocker! Shayne reveals she and hubby Nik are planning to name their baby Press. Yes you read that right — ‘Press.’

“Her name came to us at the beginning of my pregnancy, because she was getting so much press,” Shayne told E! News. “It started as a joke, her nickname was ‘Press Baby,’ but when we found out it was a girl, suddenly that was her name—her name was going to be Press!”

Ai ya ya. Shayne, 25, adds, “I think Press is a beautiful name, we’re elated, little princess Press!”

Even better for poor little baby Press, though yet to be born, she’s already in talks to sign with the talent agency Z Group! “Press has been getting so many offers, more offers than me and my husband have ever gotten!” Shayne said. “Whether it’s a baby product or pictures or an interview, a lot of stuff has been coming, and people want to sign her, and she’s not even born yet!”

When asked how hubby Nik, who’s website is known for harshly critiquing women, feels about having a girl, Shayne states: “My husband is biting his nails! He thinks it’s karma and it’s God getting back to him for his website.” Shayne and Nik tied the knot last year in April after only knowing each other for a few hours.

For the time being, Shayne is currently filming a new reality show for the Oxygen network. She however promises the C-section delivery of baby Press on Nov. 11 will be kept away from cameras. “I decided personally to keep her out of the whole reality world and keep the birth personal for me and my family,” she said.

As the days go by, it’s becoming more apparent that the 4th season of the Real Housewives of New Jersey (which is currently filming) will likely be Jacqueline Laurita’s last.

Jacqueline made some not so cryptic tweets last night which made it clear she is over the Bravo hit series. In fact, Jacqueline stated she is ready to move on from the show.

First Jacqueline revealed she will be skipping the season 3 reunion, which is taping today. “I feel nauseous and feverish. No reunion for me.Sorry guys.XOXO!” wrote Jacqueline. Yikes! A reunion show without a current housewife has yet to happen in the history of Bravo. Not sure the network will be too happy with one of the main characters missing out on a reunion show.

What is clear is that Jacqueline was well enough last night to attend the annual Posche Fashion Show. So it appears her reasons for wanting to skip the reunion today has less to do with her health. In fact, her next series of tweets seem to prove that.

Jacqueline added, “Someone( not me) got set up tonight. There are some sneaky people trying to make someone look bad & then play innocent on camera. Sad.”

She continued, “2b honest.I’m tired of the BS &shitty low life people.I didn’t know this was what I signed up 4.I have 2rise above&move on.” No word yet on whom she’s referring to.

But what is clear is that some major drama went down at the Posche fashion show last night and it involved Teresa Giuidice! Of course. According to the tweets of those in attendance, there was a fight that went down in the bathroom during the fashion show. The rumor is that the fight was between Teresa and her new nemesis Monica Chacon. If you recall, Monica was Kim G’s guest to Melissa Gorga’s Christmas party this season, which of course led to nothing but drama.

Based on some of the tweets, it seems producers of the show might have purposely invited Monica in other to set off some drama. This would make sense in regards to Jacqueline’s tweets about a “set up.”

Soap actress, Martha Byrne, who was at the show, was live tweeting through the event. She tweeted last night: “Fight in the bathroom,” adding minutes later – “Teresa in bathroom with ….” Martha, who also stated some of the fashion show drama was scripted, tweeted some photos from the event. Those are below!

It also appears Joe Gorga was somehow involved in the whole fiasco as he has been making tweets about Teresa all day. First Joe tweeted — “I thought the saying was blood is thicker than water. #BULLSHIT” Joe then went on to retweet the following messages from fans: –

“I think Teresa must have set Melissa and/or Joe up to look bad (ie @JacLaurita tweets and now @joegorga tweets).”

“Me too theresa changed all bout her & $$$ nothing else shame.”

Danielle Staub, who claimed producers of the show had been contacting her to film, has also been mum on twitter since yesterday. Leaving some to wonder if she is involved in this fiasco is any shape or form.

In the meantime, below is a screenshot of Jacqueline’s tweets –

For the most part, the NJ housewives have been mum on twitter today as the reunion is filming. Though Jacqueline did manage to tweet this message just hours ago – “I can’t be part of the Charade anymore.It’s unsettling. It’s disturbing & against what I stand for. I’m a REAL housewife.”

TELL US – THOUGHTS ON THE LATEST DRAMA?

Many fans of Basketball Wives LA have wondered what happened to Kimsha Artest on the show after she was originally billed as one of the main cast members, and apparently, so has Kimsha!

Kimsha appeared on the season premiere of the hit VH1 show and has been MIA from the series since. After getting a lot of questions from fans wondering what happened to her on the show, Kimsha finally broke her silence in a big way, blaming messy executive producer Shaunie O’Neal for axing her.

First Kimsha posted the following on her facebook page last week attempting to take the high road: “FYI: I’m no longer main cast on BBW LA.” She lated added, “I’m getting asked a lot of questions. I ain’t got time for the bullshit. It is what the fuck it is. Ya’ll need to take it to Ms Shaunie. I will keep my mouth zipped right now.”

Fast forward to yesterday and Kimsha let loose as she completely slammed Shaunie. Kimsha wrote –

“I see they cut me off the show and left buckle ass bitches. shaunie oneal can kiss my ass. she kisses ass to that evelyn bitch and gets the bitch who fucked her husband and cut her a cheque but cant handle a real woman. FOH!”

Ai ya ya! Laura Govan is not going to be happy about that post!

So far, Shaunie has yet to respond. Must say Kimsha was a great character on the show. A bit puzzled as to why they axed her as well. As for Tanya Williams, who has also been MIA from the show, she has publicly stated she likely got the axe because she wouldn’t bring the drama.

In other news, Draya Michelle continues to make headlines for all the wrong reasons! The former stripper, who made headlines earlier this year after losing custody of her son, is now in the news again — this time for a leaked nude photo.

The MTO blog posted a picture of Draya which shows her sunbathing topless with some of her friends. Feel free to click here to see that NSFW photo.

George Clooney’s ex Elisabetta Canalis was sent packing last night on the Dancing With The Stars results show.

Despite scoring pretty well on Monday night and landing in the middle of the pack, it seems Elisabetta just didn’t have enough fan support to keep her on the show.

She found herself in the bottom three with David Arquette and Chaz Bono though her score of 21 was actually better than the scores of 18 and 17 received by David and Chaz in that order.

And while the show kept Chaz in the bottom three before announcing his safety, host Tom Bergeron announced he was not really in the bottom three or at risk of going home. Perhaps Elisabetta was sent packing because viewers were a little turned off over what seemed to be an attitude by her towards her partner during Monday night’s rehearsals footage.

Elisabetta, 33, however took her elimination rather well. “For me, it was a gift every day staying here, really. It was a great adventure,” she said, thanking those who voted for her.

Her partner Val Chmerkovskiy, newbie and younger brother to Maksim Chmerkovskiy, was however a bit harder on himself. “I’m sorry. I wish I did better for you,” he told Elisabetta for not taking her further in the competition. “But I’m very lucky to be here, and I really appreciate the opportunity.”

Some are also wondering today whether the nasty tweets by the Kardashian sisters last week might have led to Elisabetta’s early demise on the show.

Dancing with the Stars returns next week on Monday night at 8/7c.

TELL US – THOUGHTS ON ELISABETTA’S ELIMINATION? DID THE RIGHT STAR GO HOME?

After multiple failed attempts to get on Dancing With The Stars, it appears Teresa Giudice’s dream of crossing over to a mainstream reality show is finally coming true!

According to a new report by Life & Style magazine, the Real Housewives of New Jersey star has signed on to appear on the upcoming season of the Celebrity Apprentice with Donald Trump!

“Following in NeNe Leakes footsteps, Teresa is on the next season of the show,” a source confirms to Life & Style. Oddly enough, both Bravo stars are known for controversy as fans of the show are still recovering from Nene’s nasty feud with Star Jones , while Teresa infamously flipped a table during the first season of the RHONJ.

Here’s to hoping Teresa will fare much better with the Donald than the Nene did!

Filming for the new season of the Celebrity Apprentice is scheduled to begin in late fall. It will likely air next spring.

In other RHONJ news, following her win on the flop reality show Famous Food, Danielle Staub is now seeking more attention claiming Bravo is asking her to film for the RHONJ. As we reported, season 4 is currently filming at the moment.

Danielle tweeted on Monday: “Interesting call from #RHONJ producer asking me to film w them tomo night as they will b filming in my neighborhood I declined! @BravoAndy.”

Danielle also claims the producers of the show have been purposely filming in some of her favorite spots. She tweeted, “@BravoAndy ~ amazing that the #Rhonj needs to drive 45 minutes to my new neighborhood to film in my fav restaurant #STOP already!” She later added: “@bravoandy not interested! simply ? Thousands of restaurants in NJ – why film where I moved & tweet about going to eat at weekly?”

But that’s not all as Danielle also goes on to make the shocking claim that Bravo plans to fire the entire cast following season 4. “ boo hoo I hear they’re fired after season 4 anyway,” wrote Danielle in response to a tweet by a fan who stated the other cast members would walk if Bravo brought her back to the show.

Interesting that she includes poor Andy Cohen in most of her tweets.

TELL US – THOUGHTS ON TRE DOING CELEBRITY APPRENTICE? WILL SHE DO BETTER THAN NENE? THOUGHTS ON DANIELLE’S TWEETS?

Despite being publicly fired by Bravo, UsWeekly is reporting that Alex ‘Aint Too Proud To Beg‘ McCord will be replacing Jill Zarin on the Bravo housewives tour!

If you recall, the Bravo network announced the first ever Housewives tour back in August and Jill was scheduled to headline the October 15 date in Atlanta alongside Nene Leakes, Melissa Gorga and Marysol Patton.

When Bravo announced the tour back then, many assumed it meant Jill would be a sure thing for the Real Housewives of New York City season 5! But as we all learned, that was not the case. Days after Bravo finally confirmed the firings, Jill, 48, made it clear she would no longer be a part of the tour. Not a fan of Jill’s but I must say I actually see her point of view in this. Really, who wants to do PR for the company that just publicly fired them?

So it’s a surprise today that Alex, who was also fired by Bravo, is more than happy to take Jill’s spot! In a statement to UsWeekly, Alex, 37, cites her “close relationship” with Bravo as her reason for having no pride doing the tour!

“I have a close relationship with Bravo and when they asked me to step in I was happy to accept,” Alex states. “The audience coming to see The Real Housewives Live Tour want to know about the past and our experience of filming and being a ‘Real Housewife’ on Bravo TV. With four seasons under my belt, I have plenty to say about that subject! The live show format is similar to a tour I did with the New Jersey ladies a few years ago, and we had a lot of fun doing it.”

E! reported a week ago that Alex and hubby Simon van Kempen were still begging Bravo to have them back on the show.

In other RHONY news, non-fired housewife who really should have been fired Countess LuAnn de Lesseps reportedly fell off a table while dancing.

According to the NY Post, Countess Lulu took a Snooki-style tumble during a birthday party over the weekend at the uptown restaurant Desmond’s. Apparently, Lulu heard her song come on – Katy Perry’s Last Friday Night – during which she decided to do some table dancing. Unfortunately for the Countess, she ended taking a fall and cutting her knee.

The Post doesn’t state whether or not the Countess was inebriated. This isn’t however the first time there has been a report of the Countess acting wild in public. Here’s to hoping the Bravo cameras will be around to capture it all next time!

TELL US – THOUGHTS ON ALEX AGREEING TO DO THE TOUR AFTER BEING FIRED? DESPERATE OR OKAY?

Could Dancing With The Stars pro Derek Hough be gearing up for yet another win this year?

It’s a definite possibility with his celeb partner Ricki Lake! Just two weeks into the new season, Ricki, who has lost over 12 inches from her waist since rehearsals started, led the leader-board with the high score of 23! Ricki received praises from the judges for her energetic jive. Carrie Ann Inaba called it the best dance of the night while Len Goodman called it “an improvement from last week.”

Tying for second place were J.R. Martinez and Kristin Cavallari, each with a score of 22! JR’s score for his high energy jive ties his score from last week. The Hills’ alum Kristin shined with her quickstep despite receiving some criticism from Len. “It was not as good as you look,” he told Kristin.

Also showing improvement this week was Rob Kardashian! Following his jive performance, Carrie Ann called him the best dancer!… in the Kardashian family. “It’s official: Rob Kardashian is a better dancer than Kim Kardashian,” said Carrie Ann. “No offense to Kim, [but] you have the dancing gene, honey.”

Despite suffering a nip slip/wardrobe malfunction, Nancy Grace showed vast improvement in her dancing! After landing in the bottom two last week, the 51-year-old news anchor came back strong, earning a score of 21 for her quickstep.

Chaz Bono didn’t fare so well as he ended up in the bottom of the pack after receiving praises from the judges last week. With a score of 17 points for a quickstep routine that judges deemed too slow, Chaz finds himself in last place. “I’ve moved faster through the car wash,” said Len.

Below are the full scores from last night –

Ricky Lake & Derek Hough: 23
J.R. Martinez & Karina Smirnoff: 22
Kristin Cavallari & Mark Ballas: 22
Chynna Phillips & Tony Dovolani: 21
Elisabetta Canalis & Val Chmerkovskiy: 21
Nancy Grace & Tristan MacManus: 21
Rob Kardashian & Cheryl Burke: 21
Hope Solo & Maks Chmerkovskiy: 19
Carson Kressley & Anna Trebunskaya: 18
David Arquette & Kym Johnson: 18
Chaz Bono & Lacey Schwimmer: 17

A second celebrity will be eliminated from the results show tonight.
