Like it or not, there will be a second season of the Real Housewives of Miami!

Even better, Adriana De Moura confirms season two is set to begin filming in a few weeks, but not without a big shake up!

In an interview with the Miami Herald, Adriana reveals season 1 cast members Larsa Pippen and Cristy Rice will NOT be returning. “Larsa and Cristy are out,’’ states Adriana. “Producers didn’t want this to go in a Basketball Wives direction. We’ll portray Miami the way it should be portrayed.’’ Ouch!

So who will be the new housewives taking their places? Adriana has no idea though she assures us almost everyone in Miami is vying to be on the show.

“It’s so funny, when we aired, everyone said, ‘Oh that show is so bad. I don’t even watch it,’ she says. “But when they were casting, all of a sudden — I’m not going to mention names — but now half of Miami wants to be in it.’’

MARYSOL PATTON EXPLAINS WHY THE FIRST SEASON FLOPPED!

Adriana once again defends her show and the lackluster first season. She explains the first season didn’t work because Bravo never meant for the series to become a Real Housewives franchise. Indeed, the show was originally intended to be a Miami Social knockoff, but became a Housewives franchise during the editing process.

“That’s why we had shorter episodes and all that foolishness,’’ says the optimistic Adriana. “Now we’re hoping to beat Beverly Hills!’’ Umm let’s not get ahead of ourselves now Adrie!

With filming set to begin in about six weeks, Adriana states she alongside Marysol Patton (Yay for Mama Elsa!), Alexia Echevarria and Lea Black will be returning.

Larsa’s departure is not much of a surprise as she reportedly moved back to Chicago with her husband Scottie Pippen and their family earlier this year.

Let’s go ahead and add another minute to the Kardashians’ original fifteen as Kourtney Kardashian is now pregnant with baby No. 2!

Kourtney confirmed the news to UsWeekly that she is indeed expecting a second child with baby daddy Scott Disick. But that’s not the shocker folks! What is it you ask? Well, Kourt is announcing the news to the world while just 9 weeks along!

“Now I’m nine weeks along,” Kourtney tells UsWeekly. “You’re supposed to wait 12 weeks to tell people, but I feel confident.” Well feeling confident and also announcing the news to deflect from her little sister, Kimmie Kardashian’s divorce backlash! Those crafty Kardashians! Always so transparent.

Kourtney, 32, reveals she took the pregnancy test about five weeks ago and woke up Scott, 28 (apparently is not a morning person), around 7.a.m. to tell him the good news.

KRIS JENNER REVEALS DETAILS OF STEAMY AFFAIR!

So was baby #2 planned for the unwed couple? Or was the news a surprise? “It wasn’t like we weren’t trying,” says Scott. “We kind of just said, ‘If it’s meant to be, it’ll be.'” Kourtney and Scott’s son Mason turns 2 in December.

This pregnancy news is even more surprising as the couple can be seen on the second of Kourtney and Kim Takes New York supposedly having major problems in their relationship. The series, which was just taped in September and October, depicts the two sleeping in separate bedrooms and being at each other’s throats.

A source, however, tells the HollywoodLife blog the obvious — which is that their storyline is all scripted for the show. “It’s funny because Scott and Kourtney’s relationship is actually pretty strong,” a source close to the couple reveals. “As the new season continues, they will have their moments ‘for the cameras,’ but it’s a lot of smoke and mirrors.” Oh you don’t say! Makes you wonder how much of the upcoming Kris Humphries is a total jerk storyline was also scripted for the cameras.

In the meantime, we can all await the new E! special Kourtney’s Fairytale Wedding Delivery any minute now! You know it’s coming!

TELL US – THOUGHTS?

Bad news for non-Kardashian fans that signed their boycott petition as the ratings for the Kourtney and Kim Take New York season 2 premiere are out and higher than ever!

According to a press release by E!, the Sunday night premiere brought in a staggering 3.2 million total viewers, a 6% increase from the 3 million viewers who saw the first season premiere back in January 2011.

In fact, two of those viewers included Kim Kardashian, who tweeted her excitement in watching her marriage fall apart on Sunday night, as well as husband of 72 days Kris Humphries who reportedly watched the show in “utter terror.”

RadarOnline reports Kris watched in “utter horror, because it’s just not a true depiction about what was actually going on between Kim and Kris.” An insider close to the situation adds: “Kris did jokingly say that Kim ate too much wedding cake, but what viewers didn’t see was Kim nagging Kris about working.”

When it comes to Kris’ decision to leave Kim in NY at the end of the episode to go back to train in Minnesota, the insider states it wasn’t all Kris’ idea. “There was nothing he could do about the NBA lockout, he was working out, and getting ready for the upcoming season, and he is a free agent. It was actually Kim’s idea that Kris go back to Minnesota to train and give them some distance.”

The source also points out the obvious to Radar Online, which is that producers of the show set up situations with intentions to push Kris’ buttons. “Kris wasn’t getting any sleep at all with Mason’s playroom literally set up outside their bedroom door. It made no sense for Mason’s play area to be on the second floor of the suite Kim, Kris, Scott and Kourtney were staying in. Scott and Kourtney were staying downstairs, and Scott felt that the producers of the show were just trying to provoke him into reactions.”

Kris will reportedly be ‘relieved” once the show is over and his divorce is finalized.

In other news, the Kardashians grace the latest cover of Glamour magazine (more photos from their shoot below) and in a sneak peak of their interview — completed after Kim filed for divorce — Kim gives us her sob story of no longer believing in a fairytale.

“I think I’ll always be a hopeless romantic,” first states Kim before going on to add: “It means that I believe in love and the dream of having a perfect relationship, but my idea of it has changed. I think I need to not live in a fairy tale like that. I think I maybe need to just snap out of it and be a little more realistic.”

Kimmie Kakes doesn’t end there going on to state that she now believes she needs to be a bit “more realistic” about “the fact that what I want isn’t possible.”

Kim expands in the interview with her sisters: “I don’t know. I always wanted what Mom and Dad had. And at first I was like, I want six kids. Then I went down to four, then I was down to three… and now I’m like, maybe I won’t have any. Maybe I’ll just be a good aunt.”

Khloe Kardashian, apparently still has functioning brain cells, and promptly reminds her big sis that “what Mom and Dad had” ended in divorce. Khloe states: “ But Mom and Dad got a divorce, and she met Bruce. And you were a child; you don’t know what Mom and Dad had. As an outsider looking in, it probably looked like paradise.”

Aww poor Kimmie Kakes. How long until she’s in her next fairytale relationship? Plus are we really suppose to believe she only married for love and not for, you know, $17 million and attention???

And when it comes to the high ratings of Sunday’s premiere, I can’t say I’m surprised as I predicted as much. Quite frankly everyone loves a train-wreck and nothing screams train-wreck like watching a marriage that only lasted 72 days fall apart on TV! However, I still strongly believe that the Kardashians are done. They’ll never be able to top this train-wreck and the public is still sick of them. The family is currently filming the next season of Keeping Up With The Kardashians and I strongly believe those ratings will take a hit.

For the first time ever, Bravo will host a Millionaire Matchmaker reunion special!

The network promises past clients (from all five seasons) will return to dish on relationships and someone will have a special surprise. The reunion will be a two part special with part I airing tonight at 9:00 p.m., ET/PT and part II airing next Tuesday, December 6th At 9 pm ET/PT.

The press release states “Andy Cohen sits down with Patti for the first-ever reunion special. Visited by some of Patti’s most memorable clients, including Hello Kitty fanatic Robin Kassner, who offered to buy her date a Maserati; Stacy Kessler, who Patti accused of having a mid-life crisis; Zagros Bigvand, who didn’t follow Patti’s rule of “no sex before monogamy;” retired NFL star turned ESPN-commentator Marcellus Wiley, “Million Dollar Listing” star Madison Hildebrand, and more.”

A bit surprising because ratings for the show have taken a dip this year, but by having on the craziest guests from all five seasons, it will definitely make for a must-see reunion!

The reunion part I airs tonight (9/8c). A preview clip featuring the infamous Shauna Raisch is below!

VH1 Yandy Smith

Following the drama on Love & Hip Hop season 2, Yandy Smith is speaking out!

On last night’s episode, Yandy, who manages rapper Jim Jones, got into it with his long-term girlfriend Chrissy Lampkin who felt Jim was nothing more than a check to Yandy.

In an interview with MTV, Yandy admits managing Jim tends to put her in a number of sticky situations. “When you guys see Jim walk outside, he’s calling me and he’s going crazy on me,” explains Yandy of the scene in the first episode where Jim first sees his mom’s song “Psychotic” — a diss track to Chrissy on WorldStarHipHop. “Not only are you a manager, but you’re an advisor, you’re a friend, you’re a counselor, you’re a therapist, so in that moment it was ‘let me keep Jim out of jail before hurting somebody over at WorldStar.”

Yandy adds that the drama is also difficult for Jim. “I think Jim gets to a point where [he thinks] — it’s my mom and it’s my wife — he loves them both dearly and of course he doesn’t want to see them fight, but it’s a hard place to be,” states Yandy. “They’re both A-type personalities, so just trying to back them both down or have someone apologize, it’s just not gonna happen. So he does things ways man thing to do and that’s just wash his hands of it.”

It, however, appears all is well between Yandy and Jim as she tweeted last night: “Man you know how much I love Jim and he was being mean! Lol.”

As the season moves along, you have to wonder if Chrissy is getting a big ego based on her season 1 popularity as she seems to have a problem with almost everyone this season. And speaking of last night’s episode, I was a little surprised with Emily’s bold toast to Kimbella in which she stated “A toast to you, Kimbella, for making the cover, you are the most qualified. You’ve had the most black men in you, including mine.” Can you say Ouch!

While witty, I can’t help but wonder why Emily is not as upset with her baby daddy Fabolous, a.k.a. the man who cheated on her, as she is with Kimbella. In fact, Emily was photographed attending a Fabolous event just two weeks ago as well as posing for a picture with both Fabolous and actress/singer Adrienne Bailon (long rumored to have been Fabolous’ chick on the side while he was dating Emily). Hmmm. Things that make you wonder…

Those photos are below.

TELL US – THOUGHTS ON LAST NIGHT’S EPISODE? WAS CHRISSY JUSTIFIED IN HER ARGUMENT WITH YANDY? OR DID SHE OVERREACT? WAS EMILY JUSTIFIED IN HER TOAST TO KIMBELLA?

Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Kyle Richards is speaking out about the recent drama on the show involving her costar and friend Taylor Armstrong.

In her latest blog with Bravo, Kyle reveals the situation/confrontation involving Taylor was “very difficult” because no one wanted to put her in harm’s way.

First Kyle reveals her reasons for not defending pal Lisa Vanderpump, though she wouldn’t have needed to defend Lisa had she not been talking smack about Lisa with Taylor to begin with! Kyle wrote: “Although, Lisa wanted me to step in more, we were okay. I honestly did not want to be involved in another argument. I was still recovering from Game Night. The last thing I wanted to do was get in the middle of someone else’s fight.”

Kyle then sort of makes excuses for her comment about Lisa ‘preying on the weak.’ She writes, “In the episode when I had my séance, Taylor came over to my house to say she was upset with Lisa. We had a conversation on my bed where she told me that she was “scared of Lisa” and that she was intimidated by her. I have never felt that way about Lisa, but I am a strong person. I told her she should be stronger with Lisa. I said “maybe she preys on weak people.” I think that “prey” was too strong of a word. That conversation wasn’t about Lisa. I was trying to help Taylor be a stronger person in general, to have her speak up for herself — in all areas of her life. I know it bothered Lisa that I said that, and I do feel bad about that. I am not premeditated in what I am going to say. That means there will be times I regret saying certain things.”

Kyle also touched on Taylor’s confrontation turned intervention: “Later Adrienne, Camille, and I had dinner and discussed the tea party . I know Camille was worried that Taylor was upset with her. Camille spoke the truth. Taylor was obviously concerned because it was put out in the open. However, sometimes people say things in the heat of the moment. Emotions were running high. This situation is very difficult and none of us wanted to hurt her or put her in harm’s way. Later, I told Taylor later that Camille was just saying what Taylor had told all of us.”

In a new interview with Wetpaint, Kyle revealed her sister Kim Richards is still dating and living with her boyfriend, Ken Blumenfeld. When asked about Kim’s relationship, Kyle says disapprovingly, “They are still living together and I haven’t been over there.”

In other news, according to a new report by Star Magazine, newbie Brandi Glanville lied her way onto the show! So what exactly did Brandi lie about? According to the mag, she fibbed… big time about her so called friendship with Lisa’s former houseboy housemate Cedric Martinez.

“He’s my best gay friend!” Brandi announced to reporters back in February during the above staged outing with Cedric. “I’ve known him for 16 years. We modeled together in Milan and Paris and London back in the day.”

However, a source close to Brandi reveals it was all a lie! “Bravo bigwigs set the meeting up to see if Brandi and Cedric would bond and if she could prove a worthy opponent for Lisa,” an insider reveals. “Brandi came up with the story of their ‘friendship’ over lunch, hoping it would land her on the show.”

The source adds: “It obviously worked! And it really makes you question how much else she’s lied about over the years.”

Brandi, however, denies lying to get on the show, telling the Rumor Fix blog: “I got the show because of my friendship with Adrienne Maloof, she suggested me for the show. I am friendly with Cedric but that actually almost ruined my chances to get on the show as he is not liked on RHOBH. There is an ex-friend of mine with a major drug habit to support that went to Star and sold them several stories about me that will be coming out soon.This woman is a bottom feeder and I don’t want to pay her too much attention.”

Moving on to tonight’s all new episode of the RHOBH: On the 13th episode titled ‘Adrienne’s Fashion Show,’ Adrienne throws a lush-and-plush backyard fashion show, but brewing and stewing tension from the notorious tea party creates potential conflict. The episode airs at 9/8c tonight and a preview clip is below!

Following the very harsh backlash from the public over Kim Kardashian’s quickie marriage and divorce, it appears the only shot the Kardashians have at redeeming their image is to make Kim’s husband of 72 days, Kris Humphries, into the ultimate villain… And that folks is exactly what they are doing!

Kimmie, 31, graces the latest cover of UsWeekly magazine which paints her as the ultimate victim, even going as far as to call her husband of 72 days the “husband from hell.”

What exactly makes Kris the husband from hell? Well, according to a source close to Kimmie and the geniuses at UsWeekly, Kris would jokingly tell his wife she has a “fat ass” which apparently translates into calling her fat! Even more horrific, Kris would verbally abuse his wife by saying truly very terrible things to her such as the truth “she had no talent and her fame wouldn’t last.”

“He tried to control Kim by bringing her down,” a source tells Us magazine. “He belittled her in front of people… He’d call her stupid. It was truly sickening.” Sure he did!

“Kris was so different,” after the wedding, insists a friend of Kim’s. Adding that when Kim first met Kris, “he was fun and low-key and Kim thought, that is it.”

Kris, however, changed after the honeymoon, claims the sources close to Kim, stating whenever Kim wanted to spend time with him in front of cameras, “he would tell her she was acting like too much of a wife and ‘get over it.”

The sources go on to claim Kris, who has been unable to work due to the NBA lockout, would spend almost every night out partying while Kim was at home or working. “He started to love the life, going out every night partying,” claims Kim’s friend. “He and his friends had never experienced anything like that and started to demand free tables, free bottles (at clubs). It was embarrassing to her. She goes to bed at 9 p.m.”

When Kris partied sources claim he “was definitely not on good behavior.” The Kardashian insider adds, “When he drinks with his friends, he gets wild.” And when he went to Miami without Kim in October, a source from the club states:“The girls were bragging about dancing up on Kim’s man.”

As for poor long-suffering wife of 72 days Kim, who was not at all consumed with greed and fame by her decision to marry a man she barely knew, she is now described as being “heartbroken and living in misery”, all very evident by the kissy face photo she posted to her fans just a week ago!

“She’s trying to figure her life out,” adds the Kardashian insider. “Kim wanted the relationship to work so bad,” says another pal.

…But don’t feel bad for Kimmie just yet, while she might be “heartbroken and living in misery,” she still managed to attend the DWTS finale last week to support her brother Rob Kardashian!

Even better, the heartbroken one also managed to orchestrate a PR photo op to rehab her image when for the first time in her career, she decided to volunteer at the Los Angeles Shelter to help feed the homeless on Nov. 23. The good news is in reading the comments from other major blogs such as TMZ and UsWeekly, I would say over 95% of those comments are negative with pretty much everyone seeing this as nothing but a transparent attempt to redeem her image! Smart folks I tell ya!

More pictures of Kim volunteering below.

Finally, the new season of Kourtney and Kim Take New York aired last night on E! and while the few remaining fans of Kimmie were excited to see the show, no one was more excited than Kim Kardashian herself! Fameho Kimmie spent most of yesterday promoting the show on Twitter! Which many, I included, found very odd that any normal human being would be so gung ho and excited about a show that is focused on her marriage falling apart.

Below are some of Kimmie’s Tweets –

Very odd and disturbing… This tweet by Twitter user @activistdocgrrl kind of sums it up best: “@KimKardashian make me understand, your marriage is falling apart on TV and you are excited about people trending #KKtNY and #baby Mason?”
