It all ends tonight as a new champion will be crowned on Big Brother season 13!

One of the three remaining finalists in the game – Rachel Reilly, Adam Poch, and Porsche Briggswill walk away with a prize of $500,000. The runner-up will receive $50,000 while Jeff Schroeder America’s Favorite Houseguest will also receive $25,000! Warning – the next paragraph contains spoilers.

The first two parts of the final HOH competition were played days ago and the winners Rachel and Porsche will battle on tonight’s live show for the final part. The winner will then decide whom they want to compete against in the finale. It appears both Rachel and Porsche are planning to take each other. But wouldn’t Porsche fare better against Adam???

Meanwhile, following her eviction on Thursday night, fan favorite Jordan Lloyd is now speaking out. In an interview with Zap2It, Jordan reveals why she decided to play the game again: ” Jeff wanted to come back and try to win again, and since we had been doing long distance it was a good opportunity to spend some time together. We thought it would be fun to try to win again and get to see each other all summer.”

When asked who she’s rooting for, she replies, “I am hoping its Rachel and Adam just because they were in my alliance and I would love to see them win.”

Has she forgiven Shelly for betraying her boyfriend Jeff? Jordan states they have already repaired their relationship adding “whatever happened in the Big Brother house stays in the Big Brother house, so all of that has been squashed.”

Other evicted HG Kalia Booker is also speaking out about her eviction. While talking to Zap2It, Kalia is asked whether she feels the veterans were unfair to the newbies in the house. “It depends on how you look at it,” says Kalia. “Daniele was a vet and she gave me a wealth of information when I played with her. But it was hard on the newbies because we had an uphill battle the entire time and the vets already knew how to play.”

Kalia’s biggest regret in the house all had to do with the duo twist of course. She reveals, “I got jacked from the duo twist the first time, how would it be any different the second time. It came at the worst possible time.” Kalia adds that she feels Rachel is the strongest player left in the game.

The finale airs tonight at 9:30/8:30c on CBS, immediately following the new season premiere of Survivor.

Following the surprise announcement on the Bachelor Pad finale that his ex-fiance was now engaged to her new beau, Michael Stagliano is speaking out on what he calls a humiliating moment.

On Monday’s airing of the Bachelor Pad reunion, Michael was brought out on stage and told his ex Holly Durst was enaged to fellow contestant Blake Julian. Immediately following the reunion taping last week in Los Angeles, both Michael and Holly spoke to PEOPLE.

“I was caught off guard, humiliated. I know neither Holly nor Blake wanted it to go down like that,” said Michael. “I’m now even more thankful for the talk we had two weeks ago, which provided closure I didn’t have before. If we hadn’t had that that, it would have been so much worse tonight. I might have just walked off stage.”

Holly, who actually got engaged days before the reunion taping, goes on to blame ABC and the Bachelor Pad producers for setting up Michael.

“I was really upset,” said Holly. “I was thinking, “Well, at least I will be able to tell him before the show so he isn’t blindsided.” But I wasn’t allowed to speak to him prior to walking out on stage. As soon as I sat down, I whispered that I needed to talk badly and then the bomb was dropped almost immediately. He was blindsided. That was the lowest thing they could have done for ratings.”

Umm Holly, you had days to tell him but you didn’t! Michael however keeps it classy when he reveals he is actually happy for Holly despite all.

Michael states, “We were engaged and therefore I will always care about and love her so it makes me happy when she is happy. I wish we could have been happy together but we’re always going to care about and love each other. I have no reason to be mad at Holly or Blake. You can’t help who you fall for.”

Holly adds, “If we had walked out there hating each other, I don’t think we would have gotten as many votes. He’s the best guy and I can’t wait for him to find the right girl.”

Meanwhile Bachelor insider Reality Steve is reporting that Holly’s fiance Blake got the $25,000 Neil Lane diamond engagement ring for free from ABC in exchange for allowing them to tape the proposal. Classy. Holly will reportedly have to return the three carats cushion-cut diamond ring in the case that the engagement gets called off.

A picture of Holly’s engagement ring is below!

While the Bravo network is reportedly set to make the Real Housewives of New York City casting decision this week, two of the show’s stars are now speaking out on a number of topics.

In an interview with E! Online, Alex McCord and Simon van Kempen talk Bethenny Frankel’s Skinnygirl scandal, the latest casting news and Russell Armstrong’s suicide.

When it comes to Bethenny (she is facing class action lawsuits over claims that her Skinnygirl drinkline is not all natural as claimed), Simon comes to her defense… sorta. “For me, there’s truth in advertising,” he told E! News. “If you’re upfront about it, there wouldn’t be scandal. I don’t think she was hiding anything at all, [but] once she sold it off, she lost a little control.”

Alex chimed in adding that Bethenny will get through it, though she is obviously “pretty peeved.”

When asked if they will be returning for another season of the RHONY, the duo echoed previously reported sentiments, which is that Bravo has yet to inform them of their decision. “We honestly don’t know,” Simon said. “You know as much as we do. We find out when everyone else does. It’s up to Bravo.”

Silex also touched on Russell Armstrong’s suicide, praising Bravo for handling it well. “We watched the first episode of Beverly Hills and I met him,” Alex stated. “There’s no great way for them [Bravo] to handle it.” Simon added, “It’s such a private thing. I thought Bravo handled it as well as they could… They either have to cancel the show or face it head on. They faced it head on.”

In other news, it seems to be pouring for Bethenny Frankel as just days after the class action lawsuits were filed against her, RadarOnline uncovered legal documents about the new home she purchased in TriBeCa, New York.

According to Radar, the docs reveal Bethenny, 40, put down $2.7 million on the four-bedroom condo and borrowed $2.3 million from Bank of America — in the form of a 30-year mortgage. The site then went on to question what happened to her reported $120 million payout if she’s taking out a mortgage. Radar also pointed out that Bethenny’s former assistant Molly was the one who signed all the paperwork.

Gossip columnist Rob Shuter then tweeted, “Strange! @Bethenny is in $2.3 million in debt! Got mortgage on her new apt. Where is her $120 million?” This led to outrage from Bethenny fans who defended her on twitter.

Bethenny fan @AtlantaSue2 tweeted: “@NaughtyNiceRob @Bethenny Ridiculous. A mortgage isn’t considered bad debt. It’s an investment. You look foolish tweeting this crap!” In fact, Bethenny herself then replied, “You guys are so smart. People are morons. @AtlantaSue2.”

When all is said and done, it appears taking out the $2.3 million mortgage might have been for tax benefits. Plus even though Bethenny reportedly earned over $100 million for the sale of her drinkline, it’s more than likely most of that amount will come in future payouts and/or when incentives are reached.

TELL US – THOUGHTS ON SILEX’S COMMENTS AND ON BETHENNY’S MORTGAGE “DRAMA” ?

According to a new report, Teen Mom star Amber Portwood continues to be at risk for a relapse after two months in a California rehab facility where she received treatment for depression following a suicide attempt.

Sources close to Amber, 21, reveal since returning home to Indiana, the fragile single mother has run straight back into trouble aka the arms of her baby daddy Gary Shirley.

“I told her to take it slow with Gary and not jump into anything,” Amber’s brother, Shawn Portwood, tells In Touch Weekly. “But they’re back together.”

In Touch adds that while Amber was in recovery, Gary went wild. Often leaving their 2-year-old daughter Leah in the care of his mother, while he partied every night “He was always drinking and hooking up with other girls,” a pal reveals. “He says he loves Amber, but he really doesn’t act like it!”

Shawn however adds that despite getting back with Gary, Amber is trying to improve her life. “She has enrolled back in school and is taking control. She’s at peace,” Shawn says.

In other news, Amber’s fellow troubled teen mom Jenelle Evans received some good news days ago.

While she was found guilty of a misdemeanor charge for simple affray (fighting in public), the 19-year-old managed to escape jail as she was instead given a suspended sentence of 30 days, meaning she stays out of jail unless she violates probation within the next 12 months.

In addition to that, she’ll also have to pay a small fine of $100, attend anger management classes and do 24 hours of community service.

Following her court appearance on Friday, Jenelle kept it ever so classy by tweeting, “F— yes. !!!!! I WINNNNNNN ;).” This entire court case stemmed from a videotaped fight that occurred back in March during which Jenelle beat the crap out of her former friend Britany Truett.

A new episode of Teen Mom airs tonight on MTV at 10/9c.

Self proclaimed Jersey Shore meatball Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi is showing off her new ink!

The MTV reality star showed off her new tattoo over the weekend on twitter! “MY NEW TAT <3 badass,” tweeted the Snooks along with a photo of new work of art.

Snooki’s new tat appears to be a picture of a crown with a pink bow underneath. However, this isn’t the guidette’s first tattoo as she also has the phrase ‘La Familia’ tatted on her back. More photos of Snooki’s new dumb tattoo below!

Meanwhile, Snooki, 23, also tweeted hours ago about Real Housewives of New Jersey star Teresa Giudice.

She wrote, “I love Teresa from housewives even tho she did say rude things about me . Her kids are adorable. #myfuturekids.” Snooki is referring to Teresa’s previous comments in which the pot she bashed the Jersey Shore cast and stated she wouldn’t want her daughters to grow up to be like them.

Back in January, Teresa stated, “No, I don’t want them to act like the Jersey Shore kids… I hear that they sleep around. I don’t want my daughters sleeping around.” Ouch!

Beating out the other 16 contestants, Holly Durst and her partner/ex-fiance Michael Stagliano emerged the winners, taking home the $250,000 prize on the ABC show Monday night.

Holly and Michael beat out runner-ups Graham Bunn and Michelle Money. The 14 eliminated contestants were the ones who voted, giving Holly and Michael got 10 votes, while Michelle and Graham only got 4.

The finale was of course not without drama. It was revealed that Holly, 28, had gotten engaged to Blake Julian, 28, much to the complete surprise of her former fiance Michael, 27. Michael was understandably upset as he wondered why he had to find out about the engagement on the show.

While Michael admitted he was “hurt” he hadn’t heard about her engagement before the reunion show, he didn’t let it deter him from choosing to share the prize with Holly. The two partners ended up taking home $125,000 each.

Taylor Armstrong Abuse Photos

It was only a matter of time.

Weeks after it was reported that Taylor Armstrong had taken photos of the physical abuse she allegedly suffered at the hands of her estranged husband Russell Armstrong, photos of the battered reality star have now been released.

Entertainment Tonight released the first abuse photos of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star just moments ago which show her with a black eye.

According to ET, the photos of Taylor, 40, were taken as she lay in a hospital bed, getting surgery. ET states the “exclusive photos” were taken by a friend.

An expert reveals the injuries were likely caused by a “fist to the eye or somebody taking her head from the back and forcing her into something.” ET promises to air its special investigation on Tuesday.

Taylor first went public with her domestic abuse claims back in July two weeks after filing for divorce. Russell admitted back then to pushing his wife but claimed it “happened in the heat of the moment.” Since then, court records have revealed two of Russell’s exes (an ex-wife and an ex-girlfriend) also accused him of physical abuse years ago.

More shocking photos of Taylor below.

Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Season 2 Cast

According to a shocking new report, Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Adrienne Maloof is experiencing financial difficulties.

RadarOnline is reporting that Adrienne, who comes from the very wealthy Maloof family, is currently in financial trouble and is being forced to downgrade her lavish lifestyle.

“She is cutting back on every aspect of her luxurious lifestyle,” a source says reveals about Adrienne who is married to plastic surgeon Paul Nassif. “Adrienne and Paul lead an extravagant life, but they’re having money troubles and are looking for ways to scale back their opulence.”

The source adds that Adrienne is taking both small and drastic measures to cut back on her expenses. “She’s cut back on household staff, using people in the house only for the bare minimum requirements,” the source states. “Adrienne and Paul argue all the time but now that the economy is bad and their personal fortunes are dwindling they’re making serious adjustments to their lifestyle.” Ai ya ya.

Pretty shocking report as the Maloof family owns a NBA team as well as luxury hotels, a record company, and other business entities.

In other news, Russell Armstrong’s sister Laurie Kelsoe is speaking out against Taylor Armstrong once again, this time threatening to sue her if she dare writes anything that slanders her brother. Laurie is speaking in reference to a book that Taylor is planning to write (reportedly about domestic violence).

“Taylor had better check with our family before writing any type of book disparaging my brother or she will get sued! She is ruthless and a gold-digger!” Laurie tells HollywoodLife.

“I thought she was mourning the loss of Russell, instead she is busy shopping around a book deal and shopping around her story to any media outlet who will pay her. It is so unethical! She said she never filed any police reports when my brother allegedly hit her because she wanted to protect their daughter Kennedy. Well obviously she doesn’t care about protecting Kennedy anymore. She is so desperate for fame and money, she will do and say whatever it takes,” adds Laurie.

Laurie finishes off with: “Tell Taylor, her sister-in-law is going to write a book about psychological abuse and call it “A Hollywood Wannabe Turned Murderer!”

In a separate interview with the Rumor Fix, Laurie reveals she is planning to sue Bravo. As we have reported, Taylor got the book deal before Russell’s passing.

In more RHOBH news, a blind item was posted about a RHOBH married couple on the rocks, and many fans of the show are now wondering who that couple is. The full blind item from CDAN is below –

“Which RH Beverly Hills couple, despite giving off the appearance of being the most in love actually have the most marital issues and none of it began until the show did, which is ironic considering…. Half the time the couple does not even sleep in the same bed together.”

Many are suspecting it is about, Kyle Richards and her husband Mauricio Umansky.

And finally, a new episode of the RHOBH is set to air tonight on Bravo at 9/8c. On the second episode this season titled, ‘Blame It On The Altitude,’ Camille seeks respite from the public dramas of her life by hitting the ski slopes with the 90210 ladies. The snow bunnies also bask in some hot-tub relaxation, but the drama heats up when one wife details her problems.
