Ryan Culberson

Real Housewives of Orange County star Briana Wolfsmith has officially become Briana Culberson.

While Briana’s mom Vicki Gunvalson announced her engagement November 3 via Twitter, a source confirms to Reality Tea that Briana, a 24-year-old nurse, has actually eloped and gotten married in Las Vegas!

Briana’s new husband is Ryan Culberson, a military man and a North Carolina native. As of the moment, there is no word yet on how long they’ve dated or known each other. It’s presumably less than a year as Vicki was still trying to set her daughter up on the last season of the RHOC. Our source tells us they met at a bar.

Our source also adds that Ryan, a Marine, has been previously married before and is actually recently divorced — having ended his marriage at the end of 2010.

No word yet on how Vicki feels about her daughter eloping though we will likely find out on the upcoming season of the RHOC — which is currently filming.

Congrats to Briana!

In other OC news, Vicki recently posted some new photos to her Facebook page of herself and her costars plus boyfriend Brooks Ayers. Those are below!

Just when it appeared the split between Basketball Wives LA stars Matt Barnes and Gloria Govan was amicable, things are quickly turning nasty all thanks to a new statement released by Matt!

In the bombshell statement, released Wednesday, Matt explains the real reason Gloria and he parted ways was due to an “ongoing affair” she continues to have with a friend of his. Even more shocking, Matt claims they actually broke things off in May, but Gloria begged him to put on a facade due to her TV career. Ai ya ya.

Matt’s full statement via his Twitter page is below –

“In May, Gloria and I decided to separate and in the best interest of her career, I foolishly agreed to portray that we were still together for the upcoming season off her show on VH1. As recently as August we decided to revisit a joint statement of our separation, but Gloria asked to delay making our separation public for the interest of her show.

It is ironic now how Gloria is trying to manipulate the professional relationship between Eva Longoria and myself as the sole reason for our separation, when she knows we split up in May. The reason I broke my silence and released the separation statement a month ago, was due to her on going affair with a former friend of mine. Again, I wish her nothing but the best and I will continue to keep our children as my first priority.”

Wowzers. According to the rumor mill, that friend might be none other than rapper The Game. The Game is pictured with Matt in the pic below and even gave the couple a shout out in his song ‘Good Girls Gone Bad.’ The Game rapped, “Drizzy, I’m sittin here watchin’ Basketball Wives, Like ugh, them is basketball wives? Only cute one, Gloria, thats my ni**a Matt Barnes chick, Can’t swim in that pool fool, thats a crucial conflict.”

It has been rumored for weeks now that Gloria has been having a fling with The Game. Perhaps the rumors are true or perhaps Matt is just believing what others are whispering.

Gloria responded to Matt’s claims via Twitter… of course. Below is what she had to say:

“So Matt’s at it again I see… Whatever he feels like he needs to say to justify our separation is on him. Obviously his relationship with Eva is important enough to bash me. So I wish him and her nothing but the best. Ad will continue to focus Me and out kids. Happy thanksgiving everyone xoxo.”

As for Matt, multiple media outlets continue to report that he is now seeing actress Eva Longoria. Despite their denials, the two continue to be photographed together with Star magazine reporting they are indeed having a “fling.” An insider told the mag: “Eva and Matt are sleeping together. It’s a full-blown fling!”

Following this week’s drama on the Real Housewives of Atlanta over an interview he gave to UpTown magazine during which he slammed his wife Cynthia Bailey’s costars, Peter Thomas has decided it’s best to give another interview to the SAME mag slamming the same costars again!

Yes, in his latest interview with UpTown magazine, Peter doesn’t hold back as he discusses his beef with Phaedra Parks’ husband Apollo Nida, talks smack about Sheree Whitfield, calls Kim Zolciak “crazy” while adding that Nene Leakes has a “big ass mouth” though he makes it clear he loves The Nene!

Below are excerpts from Peter’s new interview –

On Clashing with Apollo:

What people see is what it is. I don’t really know Apollo. Apollo felt like he was defending his wife [regarding] the UPTOWN article that I did . . . the article wasn’t about them. The article was about how I felt about what my wife said and what people were saying about, you know, UPTOWN Restaurant and Lounge and that she gave me money to do it and I wanted to set the record straight by saying yes she made a contribution but I didn’t take her wallet to do it.

The Real Problem With Sheree:

She talks about everybody f****ed up all the time, especially my wife. She said my wife is spineless. She said my wife has no backbone. She said my wife follows around NeNe like some little puppy. She says a lot of really f****ed up things and my wife is too much of a classy chick to even go in on that so, when they ask me what I think, because me and my wife is one, I’m gone say how I feel. She thinks she’s cute but I don’t think she’s cute. If she thinks she’s cute, then that’s on her. It’s like when I watched [the show Sunday] night and she said ‘well, I know I’m cute’ and my answer was ‘really.’ It didn’t change how I feel. But all of that was at the top of the year. I just saw Sheree recently after the Soul Train Awards. She came through to bar One and maybe she forgave me or I forgave her. We don’t know. Let’s see what happens next.

On Nene and Her Mouth:

When I say NeNe is loud, it’s because NeNe got a big ass mouth but I love her. I love her to death. I love her. She’s cool as hell. She’s the realest as far as I’m concerned.

On Why Kim Is Crazy:

When I say Kim is crazy as hell, it’s because her mouth is so reckless. All kinds of s**t come out of her mouth. I don’t think they have ever shot Kim without beeping, without beep beep beep beep beep beep beep beep, because she talks crazy. That’s how she talks.

On The Marriage Drama Involving Cynthia’s Mother and Sister:

I was caught off guard. I didn’t see that coming. I love Barbara. I think Cynthia’s mother is a beautiful lady. I didn’t know that they had certain concerns. I had never been in that position before. It made me a little bit more humble. It makes me a little more determined. I used that fuel to light my fire, to bounce right back, to open BarOne. I could crash and burn. I know everybody would like to see that but that’s not who I am. I’m a man’s man and I don’t have no problem repping that to the fullest.

Peter On His Love For His Wife Cynthia and Why People Can’t Stand It:

My wife is not just beautiful. She’s extremely beautiful. I’m not just talking about the exterior and what everybody sees. I’m talking about her make-up–her honesty, her softness, her caring ways. She’s an angel. I’m a lucky man. I’m the luckiest man on the planet. I will do nothing ever to disappoint her. I live for her. When a man and a woman say I do in front of God and family and friends they’re basically saying it’s a ride-or-die type situation. I’m old school so that’s the way I think and I believe that’s the way my wife thinks also… We’re in love with each other and a lot of people hate that because they might not have that in their life. But guess what? That’s their f***ing problem.

Peter also talked about why his UPTOWN Bar failed last year. “UPTOWN only failed for the fact that everything in America failed. Every banking institution failed. Okay. Every mortgage company failed. There wasn’t even no dancing in Atlanta during those months so people wasn’t coming out of their house. Everybody was scared,” said Peter adding that his new place BarOne will succeed because it’s “a small venue” and “the price point is lower.”

They say when it rains, it pours and unfortunately for the Kardashian family, it has been a-stormin for the past three weeks. Well, with the exception of Rob Kardashian!

Since Kim Kardashian, 31, filed for divorce three weeks ago, the family has experienced a public backlash like no other in addition to turmoil in the family due to the said backlash.

Fast forward to today and it doesn’t appear things will be looking up for Kimmie Kakes anytime soon. According to the upcoming issue of Life & Style magazine, out on news stands tomorrow, Kris Humphries aka Kim’s husband of 72 days, is now planning to sue her to the tune of $10 million!

“Kris has a legal team investigating his options,” an insider tells Life & Style. “He’s claiming his role on Kourtney & Kim Take New York is bigger than he was told, and that’s why he wants more money. But Kris is also suing because he’s really worried about how badly he’s going to be portrayed on the series.”

Acc0rding to Life & Style, Kris, 26, is mostly worried about some explosive footage of him “bullying” Kim’s best friend Jonathan Cheban. “Midway through the season, Kris starts bullying Kim’s best friend, Jonathan Cheban, about his sexuality,” shares a pal of Kim. “Jonathan isn’t gay, but Kris accuses him of being gay and criticizes him for it in a really homophobic way. Jonathan is really upset.”

The source close to Kim claims the “bullying” made her very upset. “Kris used the word ‘gay’ as an insult, to try and hurt Jonathan,” an E! insider tells Life & Style. “He’s the lowest of the low bullying someone like this.”

Kris has now reportedly retained lawyer Lee Hutton III and is trying his hardest to prevent his worst moments from being aired on TV.

However, Kris’ family and friends are coming to his defense maintaining that most of Kris’ appearance on Kourtney & Kim was scripted, including scenes in which he questions Jonathan’s sexuality. They also remain adamant that Kris is not homophobic. “Little did Kris know that he was being set up,” his father, William Humphries, tells Life & Style. “Kris got used — 100 percent used.”

Meanwhile, Hills alum and Dancing With The Stars contestant Kristin Cavallari is now taking some shots at the Kardashian family! Kristin graces the current issue of Life & Style magazine with a headline that reads: “Betrayed! Scott’s affair with Kristin.”

The article claims that while Kourtney Kardashian and Scott Disick were on a break two years ago (mind you this was even before Kourtney got pregnant) Scott and Kristin hooked up. The mag went on to claim Kourtney, reportedly friends with Kristin at the time, feels so betrayed and therefore banned Scott from stepping foot on the DWTS set this season due to Kristin being a contestant. And yes, that whole story sounds extremely ridiculous to us as well!

“Scott and Kristin hooked up in Las Vegas [in February 2009] during a time that he was on a break from Kourtney,” an insider told Life & Style. “Kourtney was furious. She and her sisters have called Kristin ‘the whore bag’ ever since.” Oh the nerve of any Kardashian calling anyone else a “whore bag!”

Well, Kristin not only denies the ridic report but also fires back at the Kardashians as she believes they leaked the story to the press in other to take some heat off Kimmie and the backlash she is receiving. Smart girl that Kristin!

“I just think, what convenient timing for them with their show [Kourtney & Kim Take New York] premiering next week. With everything that’s going on for Kim, I feel like they’re trying to take the heat off her,” Kristin said on The Billy Bush Show syndicated radio show.

Kristin continued, “When there’s a big story like that, they always call you and ask if you want to comment and clearly none of them denied it… It’s disrespectful to me and Jay [Cutler, Cavallari’s ex-fiance who she just got back together with], and I think it just says a lot about their character.” Ouch!

Finally, even PETA is getting in on the Trash a Kardashian month as they recently launched a billboard campaign against Kimmie! Us Weekly reports that on the billboard, scheduled to go up in early December, a fur-clad Kimmie sits opposite a sad shot of baby foxes. “Kim: These Babies Miss Their Mother,” reads the sign. “Is She on Your Back?” A picture of the PETA billboard is below!

Meanwhile, Kim made another public appearance yesterday (what happened to staying out of the spotlight?) as she and her family were in the Dancing With The Stars audience to cheer for Rob. A picture of the Kardashian clan is below –

Another Bachelor relationship bites the dust.

After over a year together, Bachelorette star Ali Fedotowsky and fiancé Roberto Martinez have ended their relationship.

The couple’s rep confirms the split to PEOPLE magazine. “Ali Fedotowsky and Roberto Martinez have ended their relationship,” the rep reveals. “As they go through this difficult time, we ask that you respect the couple’s privacy.”

Ali, 27, and Roberto, 28, got engaged back in 2010 during the 6th season of the Bachelorette. All seemed to be going well for the couple until a few months ago when Ali revealed they had decided to postpone their wedding blaming their busy schedules and a thigh injury.

UsWeekly, however, reported the two were having major problems just last month. Ali is “miserable in the relationship and he is too,” a friend told the mag back then. “Their relationship has been tumultuous since day one,” added the friend stating the two “bring out the worst in each other.”

The report stated the couple’s issues stemmed from their stressful long, hectic work hours as well as big-time fights.

Rob Kardashian went into Monday night’s Dancing With The Stars finale an underdog and left a front runner!

Each of the three remaining finalists had to perform two dances each — a regular dance and a freestyle. In a total shocker, Rob finished with the highest score of the night, earning a total of 57 points!

First Rob, 24, earned a score of 27 for his classic waltz and then a perfect score of 30 (his first this season) for his retro freestyle. “You’re like the male version of Cinderella who made it to the ball, and deservedly so,” said judge Carrie Ann Inaba.

Tying for second place were both Ricki Lake and war veteran J.R. Martinez each finishing the night with a total score of 54 points. J.R. earned a 24 for his lackluster cha- cha which judge Led Goodman described as “not very good,” before improving to earn a perfect score of 30 for his 80s freestyle dance!

Ricki Lake was pretty consistent last night earning a score of 27 for both of her dances, which included a cha-cha and a freestyle. “You’ve never been hotter, you’ve never been sexier,” raved judge Bruno Tonioli.

The full scores from last night are below –

Rob Kardashian & Cheryl Burke: (27, 30) 57
Ricki Lake & Derek Hough: (27, 27) 54
J.R. Martinez & Karina Smirnoff: (24, 30) 54

Tonight, a new DWTS champ will be crowned! So the question is…

TELL US – WHO ARE YOU ROOTING FOR TO WIN THE MIRROR BALL TROPHY?

Following last week’s super dramatic episode of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, Taylor Armstrong is breaking the silence on her drama with costar Lisa Vanderpump.

On last week’s episode, Taylor, 40, accused Lisa of mistreating her and refusing her friendship, and no we are not back in elementary school! Things took a turn for the bitchier nastier when Taylor outed her costars for talking smack about Lisa behind her back, while also trying to rile them all up to go against Lisa.

LISA VANDERPUMP TALKS RELATIONSHIP & DRAMA WITH TAYLOR!

Unfortunately for Taylor, her attempt failed… miserably as the ladies ended up turning the night into an intervention for her regarding her marriage and her claims of physical abuse at the hands of her now deceased husband, Russell Armstrong.

Taylor, who hasn’t blogged all season, took to her Twitter to discuss the drama. First she appeared to be defending her awful behavior when she tweeted: “U didn’t see all the conversations. But, I love [Lisa] and were good.” This was in response to a fan telling her Lisa never said she was not her friend, but rather stated she was not masquerading as her best friend.

Taylor later added: “I was a nut case. Getting healthy,” after a fan accused her of being a nut case. Lisa, who has been rather gracious with the whole ordeal, also retweeted Taylor’s message so it appears all is well between both ladies. Taylor also had a message for her “haters,” tweeting: “I actually feel for the haters. What a waste of a life.”

Meanwhile, Camille Grammer spoke out about last week’s tea party drama, first making it clear she wasn’t a fan of Taylor’s behavior and then expressing regret for revealing Taylor’s abuse claims on camera.

Camille blogged: “The argument should have been just between Lisa and Taylor. If Taylor had any problems with Lisa, I think she should have pulled Lisa aside or took her for tea alone and discussed their issues… Some of Taylor’s stories were inconsistent which led to our confusion. It was a very touchy and difficult subject and so sad and unfortunate. All we really wanted was the best for her and to help without crossing the line.”

Camille continued, “Accusations were flying around the room. I was frustrated because Taylor basically kept accusing us of being liars and talking behind Lisa’s back. When she said nobody is being honest it struck a nerve with me. I thought, ‘OK, you might not think everyone is being honest but who is really being honest? You’re not being honest with yourself. How do we help you because I know we all tried?’ Over the last year and a half we have protected her and helped her. My frustration stemmed from her blaming others when she needed to look inside her own relationship and to also realize that we were there for her. So what I said came out of that frustration.”

KYLE RICHARDS EXPLAINS WHY SHE DOESN’T LIKE KIM RICHARD’S BOYFRIEND!

“Do I regret saying it — of course! If only I could have broached the subject better, I would have. At the time emotions were running high. Not just with me, but Lisa chimed in too. We were so frustrated. I was truly concerned for Taylor and that’s the hard part. I wanted to be there for her. I did offer that she and Kennedy could move into my home… I regret now what I said during this episode. And I apologized. I felt absolutely terrible. All I wanted to do was help my friend,” added Camille.

Moving on to tonight’s all new episode of the RHOBH. On the 12th episode this season titled ‘The Great Divide,’ friendships are reevaluated and bitter tension is at a simmer in the wake of Lisa’s tea party. As conflict is put on the back burner, Taylor puts her focus on throwing a flashy birthday bash for her daughter.

The episode airs at 9/8c and a preview clip is below!
