Giuliana, 37, who also underwent reconstructive surgery, was back on the set at E! News on Tuesday. “Back at work today since surgery,” tweeted Giuliana. “Excited to be on set of @ENews. I’ve missed my 2nd family (co-workersnd you guys!!!) #thankful”
In a statement to E! Online, the Giuliana & Bill star wrote, “Even though I moved a tad slower than usual today, everyone welcomed me back with open arms and it was a wonderful homecoming.”
She added: “It feels great to be back at work,” she says. “I wasn’t sure whether I was going to return to E! News this week or after the new year. The last thing I wanted to do was rush my recovery. Thankfully, I’ve been feeling better every single day since surgery and this weekend my doctors gave me the green light to get back to work.”
Giuliana had her surgery on Dec. 13 after lumpectomies failed to eradicate her breast cancer. She revealed that she decided to go with the aggressive surgery in order to continue attempts to have a baby with hubby Bill Rancic.
“If I had chosen to just have another lumpectomy… Then I would have to put off having a baby for several years,” said Giuliana earlier this month, as the procedures following another lumpectomy could have left her at the age of menopause. Nice to see Giuliana is recovering well and back to work!
While we’re still two months away from the Basketball Wives season 4 premiere, Tami Roman is already dishing on what we can expect on the upcoming season!
In a new interview with Egyptsaidso.com, Tami reveals: “This season is filled with a lot of twists and turns. Alliances that were there or that people have followed through the Basketball Wives journey that they thought were solid, some of those fall by the wayside, some of those alliances are re-established.”
Tami goes on to reveal who she continues to be friends with on the show. “I’ve always been cool with Royce and Shaunie and like I said, Evelyn and I are building a stronger relationship, friendship, if you will,” says Tami. “I’ve always been cool with Royce and I think that will continue. Royce and I know how to curse each other out and then just keep it movin’ and laugh about it later. Everybody else is not there with it.” Uh oh, does this mean good ol’ Jen has — gasps — been officially kicked out of the “circle”?
Tami also opens up about her beau, Nora’s Hair Salon director Jerry Lamothe, who has chosen not to appear on the VH1 hit show. Smart guy!
“We decided that we want to be in a committed relationship with each other and because we love each other,” says Tami of her boyfriend. “We’re raising three daughters between the two of us and that’s important for us to present a strong foundation and a strong family unit for them … that’s what it’s been and going strong for about four years now.” A picture of Tami and her beau is below!
The new season of Basketball Wives returns to VH1 in February, 2012. Must say I can’t wait to see the drama between Evelyn and Jen play out! And from what I’ve heard, these two have A LOT of dirt on each other! Here’s to hoping they will be spilling on the show.

Following her firing by Bravo back in September, after which reports came out stating she was experiencing financial diffulty and forced to close some of her Completely Bare salons, Cindy can finally breathe a sigh of relief today as a discrimination lawsuit against her has been dismissed.
Earlier this year, Cindy’s former employee, Altovise Collier, filed a discrimination complaint against her with the New York’s Division of Human Rights, alleging that Cindy fired her because she’s black.
In the suit, Altovise alleged she didn’t receive enough employee training due to her race, which resulted in negative customer feedback. She also claimed that staffers joked she was hired to “inject some color” into the salon and when she complained to Cindy, she was let go.
However, the NY Post reports the case was dropped this month due to a lack of evidence that Altovise was fired because of her race.
Cindy responded via a statement: “I’m so happy that the truth has come out. I’ve never looked at people based on race, religion, creed, or color. I see people for who they are.”
That is, however, about to change as the Playboy founder and his ex are now battling over the custody of the puppy they once shared together!
While Crystal, 25, has claimed Hugh told her she could keep the Cavalier King Charles spaniel, Hugh, 86, is stating they are still trying to figure out who will get permanent custody of the dog.
“We both love the puppy,” Hefner told PEOPLE at the Playboy Mansion in L.A. “I told her if she wants to keep the ring and the Bentley, then maybe I can keep the puppy. I [hope] we will work it out.”
Yes, Hugh was kind enough to allow gold-digger his ex Crystal to keep her $100,000 engagement after she called off their wedding just 5 days before their nuptials. Even worse, Crystal then went on the Howard Stern Show a month later and stated sex with Hef only lasted “two seconds.” She later apologized for her comments.
Hugh, who has stated he “dodged a bullet” with Crystal tells PEOPLE “the puppy’s valuable, but not $100,000 worth.”
But don’t feel too badly for Hef as he reveals he has now moved on with two new Playmates — Anna Sophia Berglund and Shera Bechard.
Below are photos Hef’s new girlfriends Shera and Anna!
America’s #1 Gold-digger Playboy Playmate Crystal Harris is getting rid of the engagement ring given to her by former fiance and Playboy founder Hugh Hefner!
After calling off her wedding to 85-year-old Hugh back in June, Crystal was allowed to hold on to her estimated $90,000 engagement ring, you know, despite trashing Hugh by publicly stating sex with him only lasted “two seconds.”
TMZ is reporting today that the ever so classy Crystal will auction off the 3.39 carat circular-cut diamond at Christie’s in New York City in October.
A sources tells TMZ Crystal, 25, “couldn’t bear to look at the ring anymore because it brought back bad memories.” Poor poor Crystal!
According to the auction listing, the ring is only expected to fetch between $20,000 and $30,000. A closeup of Crystal’s ring is below!
As for Cyrstal’s love life, it was reported last month that she officially moved in with her lovah Jordan McGraw, aka the son of Dr. Phil.
Despite her repeated denials of having a romantic relationship with Dr. Phil’s son Jordan McGraw, TMZ is now reporting Crystal Harris has moved in with him.
Sources close to Crystal, Playboy Playmate and former fiance of Hugh Hefner, reveal she officially moved into Jordan’s Hollywood Hills home a couple weeks ago though she had been crashing at the place on and off for months … while she split her time between L.A. and San Diego.
Even more surprising is that Camp Crystal continues to deny there is anything romantic going on between the couple. A “source” insists the two not dating but rather just really good friends, while Jordan is helping Crystal produce her music album.
But get this, the same “sources” add that neither Crystal nor Jordan is opposed to a relationship, and that if something romantic unfolds, so be it. Uh uh. Sounds like PR talk for slowly introducing the couple to the public in hopes that people won’t figure out Crystal was two-timing Hef during her engagement. It is also believed Crystal called off her engagement to Hef to be with Jordan, you know, full time.
The talks of a romantic relationship first came out in March after Life & Style revealed the two were seen getting cozy at a Hollywood night club. Another fun fact? Crystal is 25-years-old while Jordan turns 25 a month from today. So it appears Crystal has a lot more in common with him than she did with that 85-year-old former fiance of hers.
No word yet on whether Dr. Phil approves of this budding relationship.
TELL US – CRYSTAL AND JORDAN: TOTALLY DOING THE HORIZONTAL TANGO NO?
A week after Playmate Crystal Harris trashed her 2-year relationship with Playboy founder Hugh Hefner, one of Hef’s exes is now coming to his defense.
Hef’s former girlfriend Kendra Wilkinson says Crystal, 25, is “trash” for talking about her sex life with Hef, 86, stating it only lasted “two seconds.” Kendra states, “She just needs to keep her mouth shut, and be classy about it.”
Kendra continues, “After the whole non-marriage thing broke to the news, I actually thought she was being classy about things, until she started opening her mouth about the bed stuff. She just totally made herself look like crap. She looks like trash. I mean, it’s disgusting. She needs to keep her mouth shut, and be a bigger person. Walk away. People don’t like that. People don’t like a hypocrite. She’s a hypocrite.”
Oddly enough, Kendra also found herself in hot water over some comments she made about Hef in her autobiography Sliding Into Home. She however feels Crystal’s comments went way too far.
“Her situation is a lot more harsh,” Kendra, 26, told PEOPLE. “She was about to get married to him. I would have never agreed to get married to him.”
Kendra, who stated in her book that she would sneak out of the Playboy mansion to go see her now husband Hank Baskett, makes it clear her situation was a lot different from Crystal’s. “We both knew our place,” Kendra says of her relationship with Hef. “He knew that we were friends. I knew that we were friends. But to [plan to] get married and then be a backstabber to someone like that – to take it to that level and then go and backstab, that’s, like, cruel, you know?”
Crystal has since issued an apology for her comments following publish backlash.
TELL US – THOUGHTS ON KENDRA’S COMMENTS? DO YOU AGREE?
Almost a week after his ex-fiance Crystal Harris dissed him on the radio by stating sex with him only lasted “two seconds,”Hugh Hefner is still defending his sex life.
In a new set of tweets, Hef, 85, insists he had a healthy and regular sex life with Crystal, who had stated they were only intimate once. “For the record, I have sex on a weekly basis,” said Hef. “And I did throughout my two-and-a-half years with Crystal.”
In fact, Hef makes it clear Crystal, 25, wasn’t his only sexual partner. “My sex life involves more than one partner and has since the end of my marriage in 1998,” he added.
And when a fan asked if having multiple sexual partners was the reason for the demise of his relationship with Crystal, Hef responded, “There’s safety in numbers. When I try to settle down [like I did with] Crystal, I get burned.”
But don’t feel bad for Hef as his lifestyle attracts many desperate gold-diggers single women! “Curiously enough, my lifestyle attracts a lot of women,” he said. “I keep getting these requests to become a girlfriend.”
Hef reportedly has two new girlfriends since his split from Crystal who has since apologized for her comments.
Days after taking some low blows at her ex-fiance Hugh Hefner, Playmate Crystal Harris is now apologizing, admitting she went too far.
During Crystal’s interview on the Howard Stern Show on Tuesday, she stated sex with Hef only lasted “like two seconds” and that she was definitely “not turned on by” him.
Crystal has now taken to her twitter to apologize. “The Stern interview scared me, he’s harsh,” wrote Crystal. “I was unprepared and blurted out things I shouldn’t have said, I’m sorry,” she added.
It also appears Hef, who was adamant Crystal was lying about their lack of a sex life, accepts Crystal’s apology. “Crystal apologized for her Howard Stern interview, which I appreciated. It didn’t have much to do with reality,” tweeted Hef. “I think Crystal told Howard Stern what he wanted to hear. That’s her MO with most everyone,” he added in a tweet to a fan.
Hef also claimed they had a great sex life in a now deleted tweet from earlier this week. “The sex with Crystal the first night was good enough so that I kept her over two more nights,” wrote the 85-year-old.
Good thing for Hef, some gold-diggers Playmates have come to his defense in light of Crystal’s comments. “I’ve heard girls say they have a lot of fun in there,” said Playmate Hiromi Oshima to PEOPLE. “Hef is a lover,” said Dani Mathers, who works at Playboy TV. “I think they definitely had sex more than that one time and it wasn’t two minutes. Hef definitely has a sex life.”

TELL US – WHEN IT COMES TO HEF’S SEX LIFE, WHO DO YOU BELIEVE? THE PLAYMATES OR CRYSTAL? PLUS THOUGHTS ON CRYSTAL’S APOLOGY?
After dumping her 85-year-old fiance Hugh Hefnerjust days before their wedding, Crystal Harris, 25, is now taking shots at her sex life or lack thereof with the Playboy founder!
In an interview with Sirius XM Radio’s Howard Stern Show yesterday, Crystal did not hold back when asked about her sex life with Hef, revealing sex with him only lasted “like two seconds.” Ouch! Though that’s arguably 2 seconds more than most expected.
“Then I was just over it,” said Crystal stating she was not attracted to Hef. “I was like, ‘Ahhh.’ I was over it. I just like, walked away. I’m not turned on by Hef, sorry.” Even more interesting, Crystal revealed they only had sex once.
When asked if she’s ever seen him naked, Crystal responded, “He doesn’t really take off his clothes. I’ve never seen Hef naked.”
Crystal however claims she totally did love Hef and wanted to marry him in the beginning. Right. In the meantime, Crystal continues to spend time with Dr. Phil’s sonJordan McGraw. The two, who are rumored to be dating despite Crystal’s denials, continue to be spotted together all over L.A.
As for poor Hef, he took to his twitter page yesterday to respond to Crystal’s low blows comments. “The sex with Crystal the first night was good enough so that I kept her over two more nights,” he wrote in a now deleted tweet. “Crystal lied about our relationship on Howard Stern but I don’t know why.”
Hef then tweeted, “Crystal convinced me that she adored me. That was the first lie… I feel sorry for Crystal. She seems lost.” A you tube clip of Crystal’s interview is below.
While former BFFsKim Zolciak and Nene Leakes promised to never speak again following their tour bus blow up on season 3, many fans believed that pact wouldn’t last. It has, however, lasted as evident on last week’s RHOA episode which had both ladies in the same room not speaking, while also not acknowledging one another.
In her latest Bravo blog, Kim Zoliack Biermann talks about seeing the Nene during Cynthia Bailey’s opening of her modeling agency.
“I had baby KJ three weeks before Cynthia’s event, so it was my first time getting into regular clothes in a while. A Louis Vuitton jumpsuit to be exact. It was nice to get out! Everyone was so worried about me and NeNe being in the same room together, but I wasn’t!,” says Kim.
Kim continues, “I am an adult, and both NeNe and I have come to the understanding that we will never speak ever again. Besides, I’m in a different place than I was on the bus tour. NeNe doesn’t exist to Kim Biermann. NeNe may be taller than I am, but she is definitely not on my level. Moving on!” Me to the ow!
Kim then takes a minute to get on her soapbox about newbie Marlo Hampton’sclaim to riches! “Everyone has been buzzing about this new girl, Marlo, and I was excited to meet her. I had heard rumors that she sleeps with much older men for money and that’s her claim to fame in Atlanta.” Uh, isn’t that YOUR claim to fame as well Kim!?
Sitting comfortably in her glass house, Kim continues, “Now listen, I’m not one to judge how a bitch pays her bills, but admitting to it and then boasting about it is just tacky! She kept bringing up her “big poppa” and hearing those two words was making me sick!” Didn’t you used to brag about your “big Poppa”? Anyone else remember that scene from season 1 during which she went on and on about the married and rich Big Poppabuying her a Range Rover?
Kim closes out her blog by stating: “She and Kandistarted arguing about God knows what, and it totally reminded me why Kroy and I are happy to stay at home. These women are in their late thirties and early forties and they still go to events and argue. I couldn’t have left any faster. Bye, bitches!”
Funny how these Bravo housewives get their own spinoffs and are all of a sudden too good for the drama! Coughs, Bethenny, coughs. And finally, Kim’s daughter Brielle posted an old photo on her Myspace page (people still use Myspace?) of her mom without her wig on! That photo is below!
Also, below is the first photo of the one and only Nene Leakes playing her Glee character — Roz Washington, coach of the school’s swim team. Lastly, there will be no new episode of the RHOA airing tonight on Bravo. The show returns in two weeks.
