Marlo Hampton
While the epsiode has yet to air on Bravo, Real Housewives of Atlanta newbie Marlo Hampton is already in hot water over using a gay slur.

Marlo is receiving some backlash for dropping the F-word during an explosive argument with costar Sheree Whitfield during their trip to South Africa.

In a preview clip released by Bravo, the drama ensues after Sheree invites her fellow smalls Phaedra Parks and Kandi Burruss to an event. Sheree then extends an invitation to Cynthia Bailey, leaving Nene and Marlo without an invite. Upon discovering she wasn’t invited, Marlo throws away her kill them with kindness shtick, going front 0 to 10 as she decides to confront Sheree.

During their argument, Marlo states: “That’s why you don’t have a man… Go and hang with them f****ts with your ugly ass.” Wow.

At one point during the drama, even Nene is seen trying to calm Marlo down. Marlo continued, bragging to Sheree that her “Aston [Martin] was paid for in cash.” Sheree awesome response? “Yeah, by an 80 year old man!” Ouch! But Sheree might want to watch it because Marlo will cut ya doesn’t play nice!

The video clip of the drama is below. Marlo will definitely have some explaining to do once the episode airs.

In other RHOA news, Nene Leakes is defending herself after some fans wondered why she took it upon herself to invite Marlo to Bravo’s Phaedra’s African trip. If you recall, Phaedra was the one who planned the trip and extended an invite to The Nene. Nene declined the invite only to have a change of heart after Marlo agreed to accompany her.

Well, according to The Nene, Phaedra wasn’t the one who invited her on the trip! Err is she watching the same show we are? Nene tweeted: “4 the record: Phaedra didn’t invite me 2 Africa! Cynthia did so she was the only 1 I needed 2 inform & I did”

Nene, who is rumored to be in talks for her own Bravo spinoff, also made it clear there is no love lost between her and the costars. “Hunni they luv 2 hate! They don’t talk 2 me & I don’t talk 2 them & I luv it! Marlo & Cynthia r my girls,” tweeted Nene, adding, “I can’t wait 2 say good-bye! I don’t like these chicks @ all.”

Oh that Nene. Always the victim.

With the February 20 premiere of the 4th season of Basketball Wives just weeks away, here’s to hoping VH1 is still filming as the drama rages on for the show’s stars!

As it’s been widely reported, former BFFs Evelyn Lozada and Jennifer Williams are currently on the outs! It appears poor Jen might be out of the “circle” for good after Evelyn fired off a number of nasty tweets to her former bestie.

So what set Evelyn off? Just Jen’s recent comments that Evelyn was jelly of her friendship with Atlanta housewife Nene Leakes.

First, Evelyn tweeted: “So @iamjennifer thinks I’m MADD that’s she’s hanging out with @NeNeLeakes ??? Bitch pls! Interview coming soon…. #ItsOnContacts.” Evelyn then accused Jen of “running her mouth” to the press to remain relevant and accused her of being “insecure.” Yikes. Below are more of her tweets –


Yes, Evelyn’s fiance Chad Ochocinco had to step in and be the voice of reason. Not sure what this says about this union when ‘Ochocinco’ is the level headed one in the relationship!

As for Jen’s response, she pretty much stuck to retweeting some comments by her followers. Below is a screen shot –


Moving on to Vanessa Bryant, who has now — sadly for us but good for her — turned down the offer to appear on Basketball Wives LA.

DID KIM KARDASHIAN HELP DESTROY KOBE BRYANT’S MARRIAGE?

If you recall, TMZ broke the news days ago that the producers of the show were putting together a very lucrative offer for her to join the cast. Well it seems Vanessa, who is said to have received $75 million in her recent divorce from Kobe Bryant, realized she has nothing to gain by aspiring to be the next Shaunie O’Neal!

According to the report by The Insider, a source with knowledge of the situation said, “No disrespect to the other ladies but ‘Basketball Wives’ just isn’t Vanessa’s style.”

By the time you read this article, there’s a good chance Bruce Jenner might or might not still be in time out from his wife — pimpmomager Kris Jenner!

In what can only be described as a open mouth insert foot moment, Bruce made a startling revelation in a new interview with OK! Magazine. What exactly did he reveal? Oh just that he found out about his step daughter, Kim Kardashian’s divorce through the media. Yikes. Surely this cannot help Kim’s tanking reputation.

“Actually, I found out she was getting divorced by hearing about it on the news and stuff,” Bruce revealed to OK!. “I was like, the last to know. But I could hear telephone conversations in other rooms happening and I knew something was up but I didn’t know it was that bad until after.”

“I’m smart enough to stay out of all those things,” Bruce explained . “I have given them advice through out the years, but in this particular case I kept my mouth shut. I didn’t want to… you don’t get involved in love. Just hope for the best.”

Bruce goes on to reveal his advice for Kimmie: “You’re going to take a lot of heat for this. Just continue to be the same good person you’ve always been.’ And I think she has and I said, that’s about all you can do right now.” Good person???

There seems to be a trend here as Kris Humphries also revealed last October that he found out about the divorce filing through TMZ.

And in a separate interview, Bruce also reveals he could care less about whether his daughters — Kendall, 16, and Kylie, 14 — go to college!

“If they want to go to college, certainly, I think it’s a good idea. But I’m not the advocate of, ‘You’ve got to go to college!'” Bruce said to UsWeekly. “I think by the time they graduate from high school, they will probably be in a position to go right to working.” And by working, he probably means appearing on a E! spinoff!

Bruce also reveals he is banking on Kendall making it big as a supermodel! “She’ll probably have a career by the time she’s out of high school,” he said. “If that’s what she wants to do, that’s good. I don’t know if college is going to be that important for her.”

Moving on to Kimmie Kakes, who continues to prove she is a vapid shallow individual with very little depth to her!

Perhaps in her attempt to keep up with the ton of negative press she’s been receiving lately, and I mean TON, Kim was pictured Tuesday in Los Angeles looking at Google Alerts of herself on her Blackberry phone.

In case you’re wondering what the heck a ‘Google Alert’ is, it’s a news service you sign up for which alerts you (typically via email) when an article pops up on the Internet about a subject you subscribed to. It’s typically used by media outlets, Reality Tea included, to get the latest updates about the subjects, in other words, the celebrities they cover.

With Kimmie caught red handed keeping up with her alerts, it’s safe to assume she read the story we did which exposed her and her pimpmomager staging fakes scenes for their E! show Kourtney and Kim Take New York.

The photos of Kim checking the Google Alerts on her phone are below!

Following a last couple of months filled with negative press after negative press after negative press, well you get the point, Bethenny Frankel can finally rejoice to some good news today.

Despite earlier reports which stated her talk show deal had died the Bethenny Ever After star will be gracing our televisions during the daytime with her own talk show this summer!

Bethenny, 41, made the shocking announcement today on her website. “I have exciting news for you guys! The queen of too much information is coming to DAYTIME! It is going to be an exciting journey and I can’t wait for you to join me,” wrote Bethenny.

She continued, “Thanks for being so loyal and supportive, without you, this wouldn’t be happening. See you all this summer on Fox!”

But before you get too excited, it seems Bethenny’s show will only be coming to a select number of FOX stations. According to a press release, “Select Fox Television Stations — including WNYW New York and KTTV Los Angeles — will run the show in a six-week test.”

So did the earlier reports get it wrong? Well, not exactly. See Warner Bros. did indeed pass on Bethenny’s show, which led to the FOX network picking it up for a test run this summer. Both Bethenny and Ellen DeGeneres will serve as executive producers on the show.

“I’m absolutely thrilled to be working with Telepictures, Ellen DeGeneres and Fox in doing what I believe is the next best step in my life and my career,” said Bethenny in today’s statement. “My passion is connecting to, inspiring and being inspired by my fans. I’m ready for the challenge of this new adventure, and I’m going to tackle it like I do everything else in my life. The queen of too much information is coming to daytime.”

This news would also explain why Bethenny will reportedly end her Bravo reality show — which is set to debut February 20 — after its upcoming season.

Fired Former Real Housewives of New York City star Kelly Bensimon is making some real estate moves!

According to reports, the single mother of two has listed her Hamptons home for sale. The listing price? Just a mere $12 million!

Kelly’s two-story East Hampton mansion is 5,800 square feet with five bedrooms. The home also has a sun-filled formal living room with fireplace and French doors, a luxurious master suite with fireplace and private terrace leading to a bonus office or guest space as well as a sleek stainless steel kitchen, which opens up to a spacious family room with fireplace and dining area.

There’s even more as the home boasts a pool and pond on 1.2 acres. Back in 2010, the home was listed as a summer rental for $300,000! The property taxes alone? Over $4,000 a month.

The property is located on Further Lane in East Hampton which is considered one of the most exclusive streets in the area and home to a number of celebrities. More photos of Kelly’s home below!

Some are also speculating on whether or not Kelly is having financial problems due to the home listing, but who knows. She could also be trying to capitalize off her RHONY fame by selling the home now. Kelly’s ex-husband is famed photographer Gilles Bensimon and the property was reportedly part of her divorce settlement.

ABC is finally making it official!

The network confirmed today that Emily Maynard will indeed star as the next Bachelorette! The confirmation comes just weeks after Bachelor insider Reality Steve first broke the news.

ABC’s press release reads: “Emily Maynard, the beautiful, sweet, young mom who captured America’s and Brad Womack’s heart on the 15th season of ‘The Bachelor’, finally thought she had her happy ending. She accepted Brad’s proposal and was looking forward to walking down the aisle. Unfortunately her relationship with Brad ended, along with her dream of moving to Austin with her daughter, Ricki, and starting a family. But Emily is ready for her luck to change and to bring her the love she so richly deserves.”

Following her break up with Brad Womack last year, the former Bachelor winner had always remained adamant that she did not want to do the show. Her change of heart reportedly came when for the first time in Bachelorette history, ABC decided to have the guys film in her hometown of Charlotte, North Carolina, rather than in Los Angeles, in order to remain close to her 6-year-old daughter Ricki.

Meanwhile, the latest issue of Us Weekly magazine is now speculating that the procuders might be planning to bring back Bentley Williams, you know, the douche from Ashley Hebert’s season, to stir up some drama vie for Emily’s love. Yikes.

“Bentley is Emily’s type and she knows the show well enough to expect producers to bring him back,” says an Emily pal. “It would be good for ABC, but she’s not sure how good it would be for her!” Bentley is her type???

Production on Emily’s season is expected to begin filming in March, with her season set to air late spring on ABC.

Just like that, the very dramatic sophomore season of Love & Hip Hop comes to an end tonight!

And on tonight’s finale, Kimbella Vanderhee will drop a bombshell when she reveals she is pregnant! Yes, Kimbella tells her parents on tonight’s finale that she and beau rapper Juelz Santana are expecting their second child together. Kimbella has a son from a previous relationship so this would make her third kid.

“We’re having a baby” says Kimbella to her mom, who appropriately responds with: ““I wish Juelz would put the ring on your finger already.” Well said mama! Or better yet, how about not getting knocked up again until he puts a ring on it!

Some are now speculating on whether or not Kimbella kept the baby as she has been spotted making club appearances around the country, not looking pregnant. It appears this finale was filmed 1 -2 months ago. We’ll let you be the judge with some recent photos of her below!

Also below are some revealing/sexy photos Kimbella took while pregnant with her first child with Juelz!

In other news, Olivia ruffled some feathers of the stars of Basketball Wives after she dissed their show in an interview with the NY Post.

While attempting to defend her show by stating it’s not just about fighting all the time (err has she seen the show?) Olivia inadvertently threw the Basketball Wives cast under the bus!

“In Basketball Wives, I thought they were always bickering about nothing. They didn’t really have anything else to talk about, everyone was just sitting around having drinks. In our show, there’s so much for everybody to gravitate to,” said Olivia in the interview.

Well Tami Roman didn’t take too kindly to Olivia’s words and let it be known via Twitter! “I’ve always supported Love/Hip Hop-didn’t think it was cool that @1andonlyOlivia dissed BBW in a recent interview. #nobueno… I just thought we’d all support each other-we’re all in the same game, maybe I was mistaken. Its cool tho,” tweeted Tami.

Olivia immediately started backpedaling, claiming her comments were not meant to be a diss. Olivia tweeted to Tami: “Nope!I said our story lines are diff because we are a hiphop based show and that u guys do dinner n drink scenes n we break glasses on our drink scenes why we have plastic cups now. would never call yall wack I been a fan of the show.”

Tami accepted Olivia’s apology but still questioned her intent with her comments. “My ace sent me the article… #imjussayin I’ve moved on but damn something don’t match up…,” tweeted Tami.

I’m with Tami on this as Olivia’s comments were obviously a diss, and she is now backpedaling. In the interview with The Post, Olivia also whined complained about the way she is edited on the show. “They make it seem like it’s such a struggle and like I need sympathy or something, and it bothers me to my core,” she said.

The Love & Hip Hop finale airs tonight on VH1 at 8/7c. A preview clip is below!
