A day after a mysterious “source” leaked a story online about Real Housewives of New York City star Jill Zarin contemplating leaving the show, Jill is now speaking out via a new statement and twitter.

The article written by the Huffington Post had stated that over the weekend, while out dining with her husband Bobby Zarin, Jill was overheard saying she is thinking about leaving the show. A “source” then added that Jill’s maybe exit was because she wanted to focus on her business venture(s) while leaving the show on a high note. Once again, that two part reunion is a high note?

Jill’s manager, who states Jill is unable to comment on her contract matters, released this statement – “Jill was the very first Housewife cast on The Real Housewives of New York City and is grateful to be part of a pop-culture phenomenon that is one of the highest rated docu-series on television. Jill is grateful to Shed Media US and Bravo for opening the door to some amazing opportunities.”

“In addition, Jill has been able to promote her philanthropy work through the Housewives series and none of this would have been possible without Bravo,” the statement continued. “While no decisions have been made about next season, Jill will always consider herself part of the Bravo family that helped change the landscape of television.”

Jill also took to her twitter page and made the following tweets below –

“I am sad someone would leak a private conversation we had over the weekend over dinner. Glad they didn’t hear everything!”

“If you want to know my plans for future..sign up for my newsletter at jillzarin.com. I always tell my fans first! As soon as I can I will!”

Gotta love that Jill as she even manages to plug in her newsletter. As posted yesterday, I suspect this is a ploy by the Jillousy to save face just in case Bravo decides to fire her. A report stated Bravo plans to make the decision by the end of this week. So the question is…

TELL US – THOUGHTS ON JILL’S STATEMENT AND TWEETS? WHAT DO YOU MAKE OF ALL THIS? DO YOU WANT TO SEE HER RETURN?

Perhaps Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Camille Grammer is not a changed woman after all.

After giving out low blows to her ex-husband Kelsey Grammer earlier this year (she revealed he was a cross-dresser), it seems the Bravo reality star is still very bitter over her divorce…perhaps rightfully so.

The latest low blow Camille, 42, dishes out to Kelsey, father of her two kids, is by publicly stating he has a small err package. Yes she went there. This all stems from a RHOBH season 2 promo clip released by Bravo, in which Camille could be heard saying — “Big hands, big feet, big disappointment”

TMZ then caught up with Camille Tuesday night in New York City during which she revealed she was indeed talking about her ex-husband Kelsey. “Yes. It was a lot like that. I had that for 13 years, unfortunately,” said Camille. Yikes. Poor poor Kelsey has yet to respond to the latest.

Meanwhile, RadarOnline is reporting Camille has developed a very close friendship with new RHOBH extra cast member/trouble maker Brandi Glanville.

While the show has yet to premiere, Brandi is already making her mark thanks to the preview clip which shows her accusing Kim Richards of using “crystal meth,” to which Kim retorts by calling her a “slut pig.” Fortunately for Brandi, she has found an ally in Camille.

“I like Brandi, and I enjoy her company a lot, actually,” Camille tells Radar. “I think she speaks her mind and she’s a riot. She makes no excuses. She says what she feels and I like that genuine realness she has. It’s refreshing.”

Camille also adds that the two ladies connected on what else other than their widely publicized divorces! “We discussed our divorces and connected,” Camille says. “She and I both went through a very difficult time, and I think we sort of bonded. She’s a year ahead of me in her divorce, and she’s a strong as nails.”

To close out the interview, Camille promises the new season of RHOBH, which premieres Sep. 5, is the most dramatic yet. “All I can say is that there will definitely be more drama than last year,” she says. “There’s so much more and many surprises. You’ve just gotta tune in.”

UPDATE – Kelsey’s new wife Kayte Walsh has now responded to Camille’s comments. Kayte tells TMZ, “Perhaps the fault lies not so much with the member in question but rather with the inspiration at hand.” Well played Kayte?

Weeks after the rumor mill stated Jersey Shore star Snooki was actually in talks to do Dancing With The Stars, the self proclaimed guidette is now speaking out on the rumors.

And as it turns out, the Snooks is actually interested in putting on her dancing shoes! “I didn’t get asked [to be on ‘Dancing’], but if I do, dude, I’m bringing the fist pump to the floor,” Snooki told Access Hollywood Live on Wednesday. She added, “If they ask me I’ll do it!”

Meanwhile, Snooki, 23, appeared on Good Morning America yesterday during which she actually talked marriage and making “guido babies” with her beau Jionni LaValle.

“I’ve calmed down already. I don’t hook up anymore,” the Snooks told GMA. “I’ll always be this crazy, fun person, but when it’s time to get married, I’m going to be an amazing wife.”

“Jionni is a great guy so I’m so down to making Guido babies with him,” Snooki stated though adding the guido babies will have to wait a bit. “I’m only 23, but eventually I would love to get married.”

Moving on to tonight’s all new episode of the Jersey Shore which has castmates JWoww and Sammi butting heads. In the preview below, Ronnie and Sammi’s volatile relationship appears to take a toll on their roommates while in Italy.

In the clip, Vinny makes it clear he is over Sammi’s erratic behavior when around her then ex-boyfriend Ronnie during a drunken night out. “I’m done with him and you being drunk,” Vinny tells Sammi. “When Ronnie and Sammi are drunk, they turn into different people and there’s no getting through to them,” he later states in the clip.

JWoww then chimes in, agreeing with Vinny. “This needs to stop! You’re not in high school and you need to grow up and find a happy medium,” snaps JWoww (Preach it sister!). Sammi however gets defensive. “I have feelings for Ron and I always will,” she angrily tells the gang. “It’s hard living with your ex-boyfriend and going out. I’m dealing with it the best I can, and I feel like I’ve been doing pretty f–king good!”

The preview clip is below! And as we reported Sammie and Ronnie did indeed get back together in Italy, and it appears they are still going strong today… for the time being.

Brendon Villegas’s eviction from the Big Brother 13 house last week came as no surprise as he was arguably the toughest competitor in the game.

In a new interview with Digital Spy, the 30-year-old swimming coach talks about his fiance Rachel Reillyof course, he also touches on his alliances in the game, what he would have done differently, and his unfinished business in the Big Brother house. Excerpts from Brendon’s interview below –

Had you been the one to stay over Jordan, would you really have tried to mend your relationship with Daniele and possibly work with her again or was that suggestion just for show?
“No, I would have sent Daniele home 100 percent. I would never have trusted her in the game. Especially with the opportunity she was presented in not having to do anything while our alliance fought to stay in the game.”

The veterans really seemed to take control of the house in the first few weeks before it all crumbled. Where do you think the veteran alliance went wrong?
“The veteran alliance went wrong with Daniele. She is so burdened by living in the shadow of Evel Dick that she couldn’t be satisfied with just playing with other people. She had to make her mark by being the manipulator and having the game center around her.”

What would you have done differently, if anything, if you had to play again?
“I would consider not having told Jeff and Jordan about the plan Daniele was hatching and kind of let it ride out because it more than likely would have gotten Rachel and I to the jury house.”

Besides Rachel, who did you really see yourself going to the end with? Would you have continued to honor your alliance with Jeff and Jordan?
“Besides Rachel, there was no one person that I really trusted 100 percent in the game. Even with Jeff and Jordan, I knew that Jeff really wanted to make it to the end and that he would turn his back on us in the end if he needed to.”

Do you feel as though you’re done with the show now, or do you still have some unfinished business?
“I am not done with it at this point because Rachel is still in the game. But after this season, I am looking forward to putting Big Brother behind us and continuing on with our lives.”

Meanwhile, a live eviction episode of Big Brother airs tonight on CBS at 9/8c. Tonight’s episode will be different as one of the evicted HGs will return to the game!

On the block for eviction are Rachel and Lawon (who volunteered to go up on the block and even asked to be voted out!). Lawon definitely put himself in the running for the dumbest choice made by a Big Brother HG ever. Lawon apparently believes if he is evicted and gets to return to the game, he will receive some special BB powers. Wowzers!

Rachel or Lawon will go head to head tonight with one of the previously eliminated HGs (Keith, Cassie, Dominic, or Brendon). As we reported last week, polls showed Cassie was garnering most of the fan votes, with Dominic coming in a close second. Our poll is below so let us know who you would like to see return to the Big Brother house!

According to a new report, Real Housewives of New York City star Jill Zarin is considering leaving the show.

The Huffington Post is reporting Jill and her husband ‘Bawby’ Zarin were dining in Southampton when he was overheard telling Jill she should not return for another season of The Real Housewives of New York.

“Bobby made it clear that it was Jill’s decision but couldn’t understand what she would have to gain from returning to a fifth season,” a friend who sat at the next table to the Zarins reveals. “Her daughter is in college and it’s time to take her parents on the cruise of a lifetime they have always wanted to do. Plus the success of her Skweez Couture and other deals she has coming up are a full-time job.”

The “source” who managed to conveniently plug Jill’s Skweez line, also reveals that Jill, who earns $265,000 a season, doesn’t need the money and wants to leave the show on a high note. Who knew that two-part reunion was a high note?

“The ‘New York’ show has been super successful but next season will never top the numbers they have now and after the failures of D.C. and Miami shows, everyone thinks the high point of the franchise is behind them not in front of them,” a Bravo insider reveals. “Everything has to come to an end. And the reunion show Part 2 ratings were very disappointing.”

Jill is now repotedly hoping to be freed from her Bravo contract which she has 2 more years on. A spokesperson for Jill did confirm that she was at the Southampton restaurant with her husband but declined to comment on whether Jill had made any decision about her future with the show.

Oddly enough, the writer of the article, Rob Shuter, tweeted last week that the RHONY Housewives would find out this week if they were being asked back by Bravo for another season. You have to wonder whether or not this article is a certain housewife’s attempt to save face in case Bravo doesn’t ask her back.

Well if Bravo is listening to America, most of the fans clearly favor the Blondes over the Brunettes according to the polls. And immediately following the reunion, Andy Cohen stated, “Thank you for all your comments on the reunion and the future of RHNYC. Consider yourselves heard loud and clear. There is work to be done!!!” We will find out exactly what work is being done soon enough.

Moving away from the Team Brunette leader to the Team Blonde leader Ramona Singer who recently visited Italy with her husband Mario Singer, and stripped down to her teeny bikinis! Those bikini photos of 54-year-old Ramona are below!

According to a new report, Kim Kardashian’s ex Reggie Bush is not over her and is now desperately trying to stop her wedding!

The latest issue of Life & Style magazine states that Reggie, who was reported to be dating Kim “look-alike” Melissa Molinaro, has been messaging her days before her wedding and begging for a second chance.

“He’s been sending text messages to Kim and leaving her voice mails, telling her she’s making a mistake and that he’s the one for her,” an insider reveals to Life & Style. “In the past, Kim was friendly to Reggie but now she’s stopped responding.”

The mag adds that just on Aug. 4, Kimmie, 30, got a call from a friend relaying a message from Reggie, 26, –while she was at Vera Wang’s for a dress fitting. “It was a friend telling Kim that her ex Reggie Bush needed to talk to her,” reveals a source close to Kim. “He was begging her to call off the wedding — and give him another chance.” Wowzers.

The source however adds that Reggie has no chance with Kimmie. “She was burned by the end of their relationship, and she’s truly moved on.” reveals the source. In the meantime, Kimmie is still set to wed Kris Humphries on August 20.

In other Keeping Up With The Kardashians news, Sears has officially launched the new Kardashian Kollection clothing line! Because surely you’ve all been beyond excited!

Returning to join Emeril and Hugh at the judge’s table are host Padma Lakshmi and head judge, chef Tom Colicchio, alongside judge Gail Simmons.

The drama between Real Housewives of New Jersey sisters-in-law Teresa Giudice and Melissa Gorga rages on with a former NJ Housewife now in the mix.

The latest drama began on twitter Sunday night when former RHONJ star Danielle Staub stated Melissa was the one who fed her all the information about Teresa. If you recall, Danielle brought up Melissa’s son during the RHONJ reunion last year, accusing Teresa of not seeing her nephew. This of course set Teresa off bringing us the infamous shoving of Andy Cohen.

While Melissa has always maintained she was not the one who fed Danielle that information, Danielle is now stating otherwise even claiming she has proof in the form of voice mails and emails. Wowzers.

It all started when one of Danielle’s fans tweeted to her as well as Andy wanting to know why he felt the need to mention Danielle’s name on WWHL on Sunday night while Teresa was on. Danielle then tweeted back, “@bravoandy @bravotv is this true? Maybe I should show everyone what @melissagorga wrote my fb inbox about Teresa?” It didn’t end there as Danielle continued tweeting. Below are some of her tweets about Melissa –

  • “Wow careful now bc ive got emails from her own sisterinlaw w so much Teresa dirt.”
  • @melissagorga Melissa Did you ever tell Teresa you were contacting me constantly?”
  • @melissagorga did you tell tre you wanted to come on w me last season To get back at her”
  • “@melissagorga and everytime you & Tre’s brother begged me to come on w me – I said no!”

When a fan tweeted that Melissa was the one who fed Danielle the reunion info, Danielle responded with “she did indeed tell me how else would I know.”

Following Danielle’s tweets, Melissa tweeted the following denial – “Let’s be clear. After I posted abt the xmas cookies incident on FB she approached me to film w/ her. Did I film? No! Begged her? Please.”

Danielle then responded stating she has saved emails and voicemails from Melissa. “Be careful dear I saved all your lengthy emails and recorded your calls to me you sure you wanna lie ???” tweeted Dirty D. Danielle also claimed that on 11/09, Melissa sent this message – “”will you (DS) help me expose Teresa and Joe please?”

Teresa caught wind of Danielle’s tweets and even went as far as to tweet “thank you” to Danielle, the same woman who called her an ape last year and said she wanted to dress up as her for Halloween.

Teresa tweeted, “But someone else was tweeting tonight too. Thank you @daniellestaub for telling the truth. I’m sad but not surprised. 🙁 #famewhore.” She is referring to Melissa as a famewhore and wrote that tweet just minutes after writing, “I’ve been on Twitter for 2 yrs now and I’ve NEVER ever ever retweeted a mean comment ab a castmember or family member…” Go figure. Teresa also described Danielle’s tweets as “heartbreaking.”

Fast forward to today and it seems Teresa might have had a change of heart. She tweeted Monday night, “I don’t believe Melissa would ever talk to @daniellestaub . Danielle, stop tweeting about my family. If you got something, show it or STFU!” But then again, in knowing Tre, this could just be her passive aggressive way of encouraging Danielle to leak whatever information she has.

As of the moment, it appears Danielle is working to release the voicemails and emails she claims to have of Melissa. Guess we will have to wait and see. If Danielle’s claims are true, then this family feud has definitely taken a turn for the nasty-ier. This could also be Danielle’s way of getting back on the show as her new show Famous Food is flopping on VH1. And as we reported, the 4th season of RHONJ is currently filming.
