Those Teen Moms. They’re like future-Housewives-in-training.

After being accused of having a nasty drug habit that includes LSD and prescription drugs and then breaking up with her allegedly-abusive boyfriend, Jenelle Evans is going to try to win back custody of her son, Jace.

Jenelle’s lawyer tells Radar Online that the Teen Mom 2 star is trying to straighten out her life and will request that the judge let her off probation early.  To show how serious she is, she even deleted her Twitter account, y’all!

Her attorney says “Jenelle is trying to straighten her life out and the first step she’s taking is going to court and requesting that a judge let her out of probation.  Jenelle has been doing really well.  She is doing everything she is supposed to do and I’ve seen a big improvement in her life.”

Didn’t that violent drama with Gary Head just go down like two days ago? I suppose, two days is like two years passing by in Teen Mom Land.

Her mom has temporary custody of her son, but Jenelle is hoping to regain custody soon.  “Nothing has been filed but Jenelle has expressed an interest in getting custody of Jace back.  She would really like to have Jace back with her again.”

Moving along.  In other Teen Mom news, Leah Messer’s friends are concerned that she rushed into her marriage to Jeremy Calvert.

After just eight months of dating, Leah and Jeremy tied the knot last week (in a private ceremony with cameras rolling) and now her friends are speaking out, claiming they are worried that Leah is still much too in love with ex-husband Corey Simms for her marriage to work.

Her “friend” says she’s settling with Jeremy because he’s safe: “Leah isn’t in love with Jeremy the way she loved Corey. She trusts Jeremy and knows he’s good for her daughters. Right now, that’s more important than how she feels.”

I’m sure that makes Jeremy feel special.  Although, Leah did admit just a month ago that she still had feelings for Corey, so it shouldn’t be too big of a shock to hear.

Speaking of Leah’s twin daughters, Ali has just hit an important milestone.  Sources report that the developmentally-delayed two year old has started walking!

“Ali is able to walk when someone stands behind her while holding her hand. It’s a major step toward walking solo. ”

The toddler is excited to finally start running around with her sister, Aleeah.  “She wants to be able to run around and play with Aleeah!”

TELL US – DO YOU THINK JENELLE EVANS SHOULD REGAIN CUSTODY OF HER SON? HAS SHE GROWN UP AT ALL? DO YOU THINK LEAH AND JEREMY ARE DOOMED TO FAIL?

Shahs of Sunset only has one more episode left, but it looks like the drama is raging on!

Bravo needs to get a camera crew over to the home of Sammy Younai’s parents because some good reality TV is unfolding – no script necessary!  Sammy Tweeted earlier tonight that people are threatening his folks and all because of Reza Farahan’s sexual orientation.

Sammy took his outrage to Twitter and is hoping that someone might be able to help solve the mystery of who the culprits are.

“2psycho’s went to my parents home last night and threaten them, if anyone knows anything please let me know.  A police report, cops, cyber search of twitter and face book. Crazy f*****s where pissed I was friends with a gay guy.”

Speaking of Reza, he’s been posting some hilarious “Reza Rants” videos on his YouTube channel.  Even though “so you want me to be your gay bestie” is one of my favorites, he did share a serious message for the “It Gets Better” initiative that’s worth a look. Reza says that as a young man he felt like he wasn’t “made right”, but something his mom did changed his whole world.   You can see the video below.

Sunday night on WWHL, Mercedes “MJ” Javid said that fame is going to Reza’s head.  Reza does seem to be the breakout star of the show, but the entire cast is finding a way to cash in like a Kardashian.  Asa Rahmati has been pimping out her music,  Reza is running with the rockstar status of his mustache (it has its own Twitter account!), and Golnesa “GG” Gharachedaghi is working on a line of hair extensions and designing clothes, but not for ants or ugly people!

GG says that she’s trying to branch out, maybe enough so that she doesn’t have to rely on dad for a paycheck anymore!  “I’m trying to really make something of myself.”  Golnesa says that she’s not trying to be the next Kim Kardashian, but she’s up for new opportunities: “Whatever presents itself, if it seems safe like ‘Shahs of Sunset’ which wasn’t exploiting us, it was just fun, I’d be (up for it).”

So far there’s no word on a second season being greenlit, but the first “season” (aka six episdes) did so well that I can’t imagine Bravo not going ahead with it.  GG says that she doesn’t mind the way she was portrayed in these intro episodes.  “I’ve gotten a lot of feedback and I feel like that comes with the territory. I could have been a nun and they would have knocked me for being a nun.”

Nuns don’t carry 8″ blades and taser guns.  Just sayin’.

It looks like Bethenny Frankel should go ahead and treat herself to that $35,000 furniture. Reports show that the sales of her Skinnygirl cocktails have rocketed over the past year.

A market research firm estimates that Bethenny’s Skinnygirl drinks have had an increase in sales of almost 400%! Alcohol sales in general have seen an increase, but Skinnygirl’s sales have risen approximately 388%!

While Bethenny sold the rights to the drinks to Beam Global in a lucrative deal, she continues to work with them to promote the line and reportedly receives a cut of the profits.  And promote them she does – and successfully, it looks like!

Back in 2011, she said that she created the cocktails after realizing how impossible it was to find a low-calorie drink. “I created a sub-category that never existed. I wasn’t an expert — I was just another person bothered by a 700-calorie margarita.”

Bethenny is laughing all the way to the bank as she continues to branch out her Skinnygirl brand to shapewear, cleanses, and who knows what’ll be next!? Roller skates? Budget furniture? $10 glass bowls for holding phone chargers.

In other Bethenny-is-taking-over-the-world news, she shared on Facebook yesterday that her new talk show is set to premiere on June 11th!

She shared: “I’m so excited to announce that my talk show premieres on June 11th on Fox! Want to be in my audience? Get tickets here.”

That’s just two months away, so start planning your L.A. vacays now.

The Dancing with the Stars elimination night kicked off with another performance from KISS.

We’re given the update that Melissa Gilbert was whisked off to the hospital right after she left the dance floor last night. She’s doing well, resting up at home. She should be able to continue on with the rest of the competition if she gets proper rest.

After some recaps and an encore performance of Donald Driver and Peta Murgatroyd’s “Purple Haze”, a few of the safe couples are announced.

All of the ‘pros’ share that this season has been one of the toughest they’ve experienced because the ‘stars’ are all so good and the competition is fierce.

A few more safe couples are announced and we watch two more performances and FINALLY we get to the elimination! When it was all said and done (after a LONG dramatic pause), we bid farewell to Sherri Shepherd and her partner Val Chmerkovskiy.

Sherri was in tears and devastated, but took it much better than I thought she would. “I just want to say thank you for letting me live a dream that I’ve always had.” And she gave some words of wisdom, telling people to go and tackle the thing that scares them the most.

Against the wishes of her family, Whitney Houston’s daughter, Bobbi Kristina Brown, is reportedly moments away from signing a reality show deal.

As of now, it’s just a verbal agreement, but it’s expected that Bobbi will sign on for a new reality show that will follow her life as she adjusts to the loss of her mom and will focus on her controversial relationship with “brother” Nick Gordon.  And her family is not happy about it.

Bobbi Kristina’s relatives worry that it may turn into another train wreck like Whitney’s hot-mess-of-a-show back in 2005, “Being Bobby Brown”.  Bobbi is reportedly going through her own battle with drugs and alcohol and her family is worried about exposing that for the world to see.

A source tells Radar Online: “This show is being done against her family’s advice.”  But she’s determined to show the world that she’s not going to fall victim to the same lifestyle as her mom.

A source said that during a meeting she told the network execs: “‘I will show the world I am NOT my mother and will NOT walk in her shoes down her path,’ then seconds later would mutter, ‘My mother was just normal, completely normal, someone who did normal things. She just listened to all the wrong people–and did the wrong things.'”

Bobbi is reportedly telling friends that she wants to do the show to see something positive come out of the tragic loss of her mom.   “Something good might as well come out of all this bad stuff.”

I’m curious to see which network is going to take this on.  If she truly is struggling with an addiction, it could be a disaster.  People will tune in out of morbid curiosity, of course, but will they stay tuning in if she’s a mess?

Never a dull moment in Bravoland.  Today we have The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Taylor Armstrong on a speaking tour, Brandi Glanville flashing her goods for the Twitterverse to see, LeAnn Rimes single-white-femaling Brandi yet again, and Lisa Vanderpump caught up in real estate drama.

Taylor Armstrong is heading out on the road for a national speaking tour, according to a new press release.  If any groups are willing to pay her to share her story, of course.  The talks will focus solely on her book “Hiding from Reality: My Story of Love, Loss & Finding the Courage Within”.  From the release:

“In this captivating talk, Taylor Armstrong relates the deeply personal story of how she found herself in a relationship of inequality, her struggle with both deep love and fear of her husband, and how she summoned the courage from within to finally leave him. In her characteristic witty, lighthearted manner, Armstrong also shares illuminating—and even humorous—anecdotes, both about life (good and bad) with her husband, as well as her experiences as a cast member on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, where she often found herself battling with friends who struggled to understand the extent of her abuse.”

In other publishing news, just one month after Brandi Glanville announced that she’d be releasing a book that will dish on her life post-divorce, guess who has ALSO decided to write a book of her “own”?  LeAnn Rimes, of course. In what *could* be a case of poor timing, the country singer shared this week that she’s planning to pen the story behind her relationship with Eddie Cibrian and a general biography of sorts.

LeAnn reportedly wants to tell her “honest” side of the story of what happened.  Doesn’t she already do that daily on Twitter?

The rumors are true, Mob Wives star Angela “Big Ang” Raiola is getting her own show!

The show is set to start shooting in July and show creator Jennifer Graziano tells Hollywood Life that she knew from the start Big Ang was too big of a personality to contain.  “When I first brought Big Ang in, I wanted her for season one, but I felt like she was a little bit older than the other women. She’s a friend of my older sister and my aunt. … We’ve known her since we were kids. We had that one major connection, and I thought, ‘Let me build my brand first, then save her as my secret weapon for season two,’ which I think worked out great.”

Fans are responding well to her, as Jennifer predicted, so she thinks the show will do fine with resting on Big Ang’s shoulders.  “Everybody loves Big Ang.  She’s just so hysterically funny, so genuine, so real — it’s almost like you can’t believe what you’re seeing! This woman is so special and so crazy, and I knew that when I brought her on for season two.”

And thankfully her current co-stars aren’t bitter over the news.  Renee Graziano says she’s happy for her. “God bless Big Ang! I’m not a jealous person. She deserves it; let her do her!”

Speaking of Renee, she shared recently that she’s GLAD that her father and her husband were both arrested and that the whole thing played out the way it did.  Her reasoning?  So we all know this show is the real deal (nail polish change mid-meltdown aside).

“Actually this might sound a little cocky but I’m glad it’s playing out in national headlines. Because people know this is real. You get a lot of remarks that this is staged. Listen, if I could get the government or anybody behind the scenes to get them to pinch 127 people and get my ex husband into a snitch we would be gazillionaires and everyone would want us!”

Renee also wants to let fans know that just because her ex-husband, Junior Pagan, and dad, Anthony Graziano, will be behind bars, her story line won’t become stale and pointless.

“If everyone thinks this is all I have they are sadly mistaken.  That came, that blindsided all of us, no one was expecting that …this will not affect my story line and I have a lot more than Junior in my life.”

TELL US – ARE YOU WATCHING BIG ANG’S NEW SHOW? DID YOU EVER DOUBT THE VALIDITY OF THEIR MOB LIFE PORTRAYED ON THE SHOW?

The Dancing with the Stars contestants got their rock ‘n roll on tonight.  It was a sea of black satin, big hair, and lame fauxhawks.  And no season of DWTS is ever complete without at least a half a dozen injuries or so.  Oh, and pretend “groupies” gyrating on the judges table.

Brooke Burke really got into the spirit of the night with some huge ’80’s hair that would make Dee Snider jealous.

Gladys Knight and Tristan MacManus tried their hardest to dance to a difficult song, ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’, which the judges gave them credit for attempting, but they weren’t impressed.  Carrie Ann didn’t think it came together well and their posture wasn’t strong enough.  I gave them an extra point for Gladys’ costume!

Cheryl Burke and William Levy received stern words about their goofs, which included a fumble or two that threw off their rhythm and caused them to go on too long. Carrie Ann told them they needed to stay focused.

Chelsea Hightower and Roshon Fegan gave it their all and the judges were thrilled.  Carrie Ann gushed that she thinks Roshon is the best dancer among this season’s men.

Maria Menounos and Derek Hough danced an incredible tango to “School’s Out”, despite Maria’s foot injury.  Maria was a trooper and never let us see how much pain she is in, but all Len could muster for her was a “just pretty good”.  Carrie Ann was blown away by their chemistry.  Derek did his best to get a few sympathy votes by carrying Maria upstairs for their score reveal.

Gavin DeGraw and Karina Smirnoff drew criticism for the form/posture, dancing to ‘Paint it Black’.

The top scorers of the evening, Donald Driver and Peta Murgatroyd kicked up the heat in a paso doble to Jimi Hendrix’s “Purple Haze”.  The judges were blown away, with Carrie Ann Inaba dubbing it “psychedelic, bizarre, sexy, raunchy, hot. One of the most memorable moments.”

Melissa Gilbert and Maksim Chmerkovskiy disappeared after their performance because Melissa needed to be seen for an injury and it couldn’t wait.  From updates shared this morning, Melissa was suffering from whiplash and a concussion.

I don’t know about you, but this season is just a little ho-hum for me.  It needs a shake up.  Get some Housewives on there.  An entire contestant lineup of just Housewives.
