So much for that “friendship” between long time frenemies Gretchen Rossi and Tamra Barney!

According to a new report by TMZ this morning, Gretchen, star of the Real Housewives of Orange County, is calling her costar Tamra’s recent engagement to beau Eddie Judge a scam.

The reason? Sources close to Gretchen reveal she is telling others that Bravo producers first approached her boyfriend Slade Smiley about a proposal, wanting him to plan it in time for the show’s finale. The show producers reportedly tried to bribe Slade with an exotic proposal destination and a free ring.

But, the always honorable Slade reportedly turned down the proposal offer, and then the producers turned to Tamra and Eddie out of spite. The two accepted the offer and had Bravo come on their Italian vacation to film their engagement for this season’s finale.

Hmm, if this story sounds eerily familiar, it’s because the NY Post reported two weeks ago that Gretchen and Slade were trying to get Bravo to pay for their engagement ring and an exotic trip for Slade to propose. The article also claimed Gretchen was jealous of Tamra’s engagement and wanted to one up her.

So it seems Gretchen thinks Tamra was the one who leaked the NY Post article, which might be the case, and this TMZ article is in retaliation.

Whatever the case is, Tamra is responding to the TMZ story, stating that she is “sick” and “hurt” over Gretchen’s comments. By the way, even though Gretchen isn’t going on the record with this story, there’s a 99.9889% chance she was the one who leaked it to TMZ. Most of the gossip stories that end up on TMZ are leaked to them by the celebs.

Tamra made the following tweets this morning –

“I am sick to my stomach and hurt by Gretchen’s tmz article about my engagement. Jealousy really turns people ugly!”

“And this is a perfect example of things she has done to me through out the years”

Tamra also posted the following statement on her Facebook page –

“After reading the TMZ article that was released. I hope that Gretchen does the RIGHT thing. This is a very hurtful story about my engagement. This is a special time in my life and to have a cast member try an knock me down out of jealousy is very hurtful. Im sorry Bravo wouldn’t buy your ring and send you to Italy. Eddie did it his way on his dime! Bottom line is if you love someone the size of the ring and where you propose really doesn’t matter.”

Just like that, the Tamra/Gretchen feud rages on! Must say I wasn’t buying their faux friendship to begin with!

While, there might be some truth to this story, such as Bravo paid for the exotic trip for Tamra and Eddie, I refuse to believe Gretchen and Slade would turn down Bravo’s offer for a free ring! In fact, Slade was spotted shopping for engagement rings for Gretchen earlier this month. So, if Slade is planning to propose to Gretchen anyways, why would he turn down Bravo’s offer for a free ring and vaca? Makes no sense!

TELL US – THOUGHTS ON THE TMZ ARTICLE? DO YOU BELIEVE IT? DO YOU BELIEVE GRETCHEN/SLADE WOULD TURN DOWN BRAVO’S OFFER? DO YOU THINK TAMRA LEAKED THE NY POST ARTICLE?

UPDATE – Gretchen is now denying she leaked the report to TMZ. But as we reported above, it’s highly unlikely TMZ would publish the story if it didn’t come from her. Gretchen’s statement, posted on her Facebook page, is below –

Whoever keeps trying to stir up things between @TamraBarney and me, needs to stop making up lies! I never said any of those things TMZ is reporting and have been nothing but happy for Tamra and her engagement. Last week I was begging for a ring from Bravo now this week her engagement is a sham! Give me a break! Why can’t anyone just be happy for her and I! We are both happy and in a good place in our lives!”

A rep for Bravo is also calling the report “inaccurate.”

So it seems that since being fired let go by Bravo, from the Real Housewives of New Jersey, Danielle Staub has, yet, to move on to bigger and better!

First, she appeared on VH1’s Famous Food, which turned out to be a flop, and now she is peddling her voice out to her fans for $18 a minute!

Yes, Danielle joins a slew of other Z-list celebs such as Michael Lohan, Tila Tequila, Nadya Suleman, and Angelina Pivarnick at Dial-A-Star.com which promises, “Dial-A-Star.com is the only place you can talk directly to a TRUE celebrity! Our service is unique an offers a completely discreet one on one conversation with celebs. The service is completely private and anonymous.”

Rumor Fix was the first to break the news and below are the rates for the other “stars” –

  • Lindsay Lohan’s mom, Dina Lohan – $10
  • Lindsay Lohan’s dad, Michael Lohan – $10
  • Jersey Shore’s Angelina Pivarnick – $10
  • Octomom Nadya Suleman – $15
  • Former Charlie Sheen porn star Capri Anderson – $10

Another fun fact? Dial-A-Star just happens to be owned Gina Rodriguez – a former porn star! Some are now wondering what type of convos are actually taking place during these calls. A screenshot of Danielle and other celebs on the site is below.

Danielle is, however, proud and excited about her new gig as she tweeted this morning: “I’m signing in at 8am to take your calls. Its been great adding voices to the faces of so many who’ve called! 1-888-695-4543 Ext: 106474.” Hey, a girl’s gotta earn her money somehow!

Moving on to Teresa Giudice, who continues to be very subdued on Celebrity Apprentice, almost to the point that you forget she’s even on the show! However, it is Teresa’s snafu in the boardroom last night that has people talking.

See, while in the boardroom, Teresa was called “slow” by her teammate Patricia Velasquez, who considered her the weakest link on the women’s team. Teresa of course spoke up to defend herself and, well let’s just say, she ended up proving Patricia’s point in the process!

Teresa stated: “A writer? I could be a writer. I just finished my third book. I have a ghostwriter. So I could get my writing done, no problem.” Wowzers.

Teresa took to her twitter page last night to defend herself in a series of tweets. She wrote –

“You gonna knock me down, I’m gonna knock you right back down!”

“Meant to say CO-writer not ghostwriter, I just got all caught up in the moment. I have a co-writer for my books. Her name’s right on them.”

“I’ve never hidden that I have a co-writer for my books. I’m not a professional writer. I’m a cook! Why wouldn’t I work w/ a pro?”

“I was just trying to say I could get writing help from pros too– just like everyone else in that room was. #CreativeLiars.”

Finally, it seems we are much closer to the Real Housewives of New Jersey season 4 premiere than we thought. According to a tweet by Melissa Gorga, the next season of the RHONJ will debut next month on Bravo!

In looking at Melissa’s twitter page today, it appears the tweet has since been deleted. Perhaps Bravo asked her to, as they want to make the announcement themselves. Melissa made the original tweet over the weekend.

Should be a great season, as we will get to see the rift developing between Teresa and pretty much everyone else on the show.

In today’s ‘you’ve got to be kidding me’ news, TMZ is reporting that Kim Kardashian is now accusing Kris Humphries of fraud! Yes, you read that right.

If you’ve been keeping up with this messy divorce, you know that Kris, 27, is refusing to sign the divorce papers, instead taking Kimmie Kakes to court in his attempt to get an annulment on the grounds of fraud. Kris also wants to clear his name as he feels the Kardashians vilified him after Kim, 31, filed for divorce.

Well, fast forward to today, and TMZ is reporting Kimmie also wants an annulment, but not because she’s the fraud, but rather on the grounds that Kris committed fraud. For realz! Apparently, Kimmie and her legal folks are now claiming Kris defrauded Kim by promising to live with her in California, and then demanding that she move to Minnesota. Why should an NBA player who plays in Minnesota agree to live in California? Not sure I’m buying this latest Kardashian tale!

I must say, if this is Kimmie’s defense in court, she has a pretty weak case. For starters, Kim herself admitted last year that she had major doubts about the wedding BEFORE she tied the knot. Which was pretty evident by the fact that she bailed on her marriage after only 72 days and didn’t even attempt to try marriage counseling. In a statement she released on November 2, Kim all but admitted she only went through with the wedding as not to disappoint others and to earn $17 million! Below is an excerpt from Kim’s statement released days after filing for divorce:

“I believed in love and the dream of what I wanted so badly. I felt like I was on a fast roller coaster and couldn’t get off when now I know I probably should have. I got caught up with the hoopla and the filming of the TV show that when I probably should have ended my relationship, I didn’t know how to and didn’t want to disappoint a lot of people.”

Kris has always maintained that Kim married him with no intention of being in the marriage for the long haul. The fact that Kim also wasted no time in running back into the arms of her ex, Reggie Bush, only proves Kris’ point. Plus, people who intend to be married to someone for the rest of their lives don’t bail out on a marriage after only 72 days without — at least — trying to fix it.

KARDASHIANS SUED FOR $5 MILLION OVER QUICKTRIM DIET PILLS!

As for TMZ’s report last week that Kris is demanding $7 million from Kim to sign the divorce papers, his reps deny the story to UsWeekly magazine.

Some fans are also calling out Kim and her pimpmomager Kris Jenner liars, as Kris J. originally claimed last year that Kim did not make a dime off her wedding.  “She didn’t make a dime off of this wedding,” Kris claimed back in November. “She actually spent millions of dollars on this wedding.”  Many, of course, called BS on Kris’ comments as reports stated they made off with over $17 mil. The Kardashians are now stating that Kris doesn’t deserve any of Kim’s money, because he made over $1 million from the wedding.

So, according to the Kardashians, who can’t keep their lies straight, Kim didn’t make a dime off her wedding, yet her husband, Kris, the lesser known celebrity, made off with $1 million? Riiiiight. And despite only being married for 72 days, Kris J. revealed last year that Kim is planning to keep the ring Kris gave her which, according to Radar Online, Kris purchased at a wholesale price of $750,000. The ring is said to be worth $2 million in retail.

Moving on to a new report by UsWeekly magazine, which may or may not have been planted by Kimmie Kakes and her pimp momma! According to the report, rapper Kanye West is not only “obsessed” with Kim, but is doing everything he can to win her heart!

“Kanye is obsessed with Kim and would marry her,” alleges Kris Jenner a Kanye confidant, with a source close to Kim adding, “To have Kanye charming her feels good. Guys are afraid to get near her with all the drama, and here’s a guy who’s actively pursuing her.”

Kimmie is reportedly flattered by Kanye’s alleged obsession, hence her reason for flying all the way to Paris to see his fashion show last week. “She flew in just to see him,” reveals a Kim source. “Kanye begged her to come.” The “insider” then adds that Kanye really respects Kim’s business sense and “envisions the two of them running this dynasty together.”

Well, this all makes sense, as Kanye’s been known to date a stripper or pornstar or two, so Kimmie Kakes would fit right into that equation!

And finally, the Keeping Up With The Kardashians family celebrated the 25th birthday of Rob Kardashian last night in Las Vegas, and photos from that are below! Even better, the Jenner teens Kylie and Kendall Jenner were also in attendance at the Vegas party.

Teen Mom Season 3

All mediocre good things must come to an end!

MTV is confirming today that the 4th season of the original Teen Mom featuring Farrah Abraham, Catelynn Lowell, Maci Bookout, and Amber Portwood, will be the last.

“Season 4 will be the final season of Teen Mom with Maci, Catelynn, Amber and Farrah,” MTV tells Us Weekly. “They will continue to be a part of our MTV family, and we’re thankful to these brave young women for sharing their stories and helping to make a positive impact on teen pregnancy prevention.”

Maci, Catelynn, Amber, and Farrah all began their MTV careers back in 2009 by starring on the first season of 16 and Pregnant.

MTV has yet to announce the premiere date of Teen Mom‘s fourth and final season, but it is expected to air sometime this summer. A Teen Mom 3 is however in the works and will likely feature an all new cast from the upcoming season of 16 and Pregnant which premieres March 27.

As we’ve reported, Amber is currently engaged in a legal mess which includes very strict probation rules that might prohibit her from continuing on with the series. We have to wonder if Amber’s issues had anything to do with this news.

Meanwhile, E! News is also reporting that Farrah Abraham might be in talks to get her own spinoff show!

The 5’7″ Farrah, 20, who signed a deal with Models International last month, is “in talks with MTV producers” about a spinoff show based on her new life and career, according to the modeling agency.

“Farrah signed with us in February and will be featured in upcoming magazines as well as LAFashionWeke.com,” a rep for Models International tells E!. “We’re very excited to have her on board. She’s going to be doing commercial, print and brand name licensing.”

Allrighty! Some of Farrah’s first modeling photos are below!

You do not want to be tardy for Kim Zolciak’s new spinoff series, as Bravo has just announced it will debut on April 26!

The series “Don’t Be Tardy For The Wedding,” features the Real Housewives of Atlanta star and her NFL beau Kroy Biermann, with Kim preparing for the wedding of her dreams in just eight weeks.

The press release reads: “The pressure is on as she rushes to find a dress, lose remaining baby weight and cosmetically enhance trouble spots. With the date quickly approaching, problems mount- her invitation is leaked to the press and her mother refuses to attend the wedding. Still, Kim is determined to marry Kroy and won’t let anything ruin her perfect day. Don’t be tardy for this party as Kim refuses to give up on happily ever after.”

LISTEN TO KIM ZOLCIAK’S COUNTRY MUSIC DEBUT!

The show premieres with double episodes on Thursday, April 26, at 9pm and 9:30pm et/pt. A preview clip is below!

Moving on to other news, Kim, 33, is now finally revealing the real reason she fired her long suffering assistant, Sweetie Hughes.

In her latest blog for Bravo, Kim writes: “Sweetie began to become a bit lazy, she didn’t seem like herself anymore, and it worried me. The last thing I want is for our relationship to be ruined because of my role as her boss. Because of those feelings, I had to let Sweetie go.”

PHAEDRA PARKS RESPONDS TO ALLEGATIONS OF A CRIMINAL PAST!

Kim, who states she’s known Sweetie for over 12 years and considers her a part of her family, adds, “That decision was best for the both of us, because now she’s just my girlfriend. No obligations, not stress. I’d much rather let Sweetie go and keep her as a friend, than keep her and jeopardize one of the most important relationships I have! Assistants come and go but you can’t buy loyalty.”

Kim didn’t end there; she also explained why she did not attend Cynthia Bailey’s anniversary party. Kim blogged, “As far as Cynthia’s one year anniversary party, I absolutely was not attending. First off, Peter acted like a total ass at my baby shower, and second I wasn’t about to attend an event for someone who implied I am racist (saying I would never hold a “black baby”). ”

She continues, “It’s amazing to me how upset Cynthia has been about my comment last year that Peter and Cynthia won’t last a year when her own family thinks that! I am happy for Cynthia and hope her marriage lasts forever, but I am entitled to my own opinion and had absolutely no desire to attend her event.”

Finally, Kim also took to her Twitter page this week to post a picture of herself with no make-up on! That pic is below.

And speaking of tweet pics, NeNe Leakes and Kim Kardashian met up again this week in Atlanta to do a photo-op dinner! Kim is back in Atlanta to film more scenes for her recurring guest role on Lifetime’s Drop Dead Diva.

Kimmie Kakes tweeted a photo of herself with NeNe on Wednesday with the caption “HOTlanta is not the same without dinner with @neneleakes LOVE YOU!” That pic is also below!

In an all new interview with the Hollywood Reporter, Rachel Zoe, Bravolebrity and stylist to the A-list, makes it pretty clear she still harbors some resentment for her former assistant Brad Goreski!

When asked about Brad’s Bravo spinoff It’s a Brad, Brad World, Rachel doesn’t mince her words. “I won’t ever see it,” snipes Rachel. “I don’t think it matters enough to me, to be honest. He should live his life how he wants. He’s not in my life and won’t be. People move on. All that matters is having good people around me.”

The two parted ways back in 2010 after Brad decided to branch off on his own. Rachel has since accused Brad of using her and lying to her about his plans to launch his career, while, there have also been reports alleging Brad stole a client or two from Rachel. Brad has always denied any wrong doing and stated back in January that Rachel has not been truthful.

Rachel’s interview with THR is for its second annual list of the most powerful stylists in Hollywood. Rachel, who recently turned 40, is however missing from the list of the top 25 stylists as the mag deems her “too big to rank.”

Too big to rank indeed, Rachel has quietly managed to build herself a rapidly growing multimillion-dollar fashion empire with 27 employees and counting. The Rachel Zoe collection is now carried in 210 high-end department stores including Bergdorf Goodman and Saks Fifth Avenue, with retailers like Neiman Marcus boasting an 85 percent sell-through. In fact, Rachel has also designed a more affordable line for QVC – which netted $35,000 in sales per minute.

With talks of expanding into Asia and other regions, Rachel is more on the cautious side. “I’d rather tread a little lighter. I’m superstitious,” she says.

And, the question most fans want to know is will she be returning for a 5th season of her Bravo hit show The Rachel Zoe Project? After all, season four averaged 1.4 million viewers per episode. “I don’t know,” says Rachel. “We’re in talks with Bravo… It takes a long time to film, and I give 100 percent of myself as executive producer. I do love being on television and in peoples’ homes. I’m not an actor, so there is a connection that’s real. … But I also think, ‘Are people sick of it? Is it time to do something new?'”

Bravo is reportedly looking into a new concept for the 5th season and could make an announcement at its upfront in April .

Courtney Robertson
According to a new report by the very credible PEOPLE magazine, The Bachelor’s resident villain Courtney Robertson might be gearing up to join Dancing With The Stars! Wowzers.

Just days before the March 19th premiere of the all new season, sources tell PEOPLE that Courtney, 28, is currently in talks with DWTS producers and could make an appearance on Monday night.

Courtney’s addition to the show would be a pretty big surprise as the cast has already been announced and this would mean she only has five days to rehearse while her competitors have had three weeks.

PHOTOS – IS BEN FLAJNIK CHEATING ON COURTNEY AGAIN?

However, adding a last minute Bachelor contestant to the series is not a first for DWTS. If you recall, former Bachelor contestant Melissa Rycroft, was also a last minute add-in back in 2009, as she replaced an injured Nancy O’Dell, after being famously dumped by Jason Mesnick.

The decision to include Courtney, aka controversy on the show, also makes sense as the reaction from this season’s pick of “celebrities” has been very lackluster.

Adding more fire to the speculation, when contacted by PEOPLE, a rep for DWTS would only state: “We do not comment on casting rumors. You’ll have to tune in Monday and see.”
