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.

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!

Knockout twins Gabi and Dani quickly steal all the attention, while former cheerleader Amy gets the rest of the ladies riled up with her eccentric ways.

Bad Girls Club Las Vegas premieres tonight on Oxygen at 10/9c.

 

Bad Girls Club Las Vegas Dani VictorDani Victor, Methuen, MA — At barely 5 feet tall, people underestimate Danielle until they are faced with her sharp tongue. She grew up with a tight knit family and a bossy twin sister, fellow “Bad Girl” Gabi. With few girlfriends, her twin will surely be the one she confides in at the Bad Girl house. She owns 150 pairs of heels and never wears sneakers unless she’s “pretending” to go to the gym.

More Kardashian news to report today as the world continues to witness their quick fall to the bottom, you know, following their undeserved rise to the top of Famewhoreville!

According to reports, Kim Kardashian, alongside her sister Khloe Kardashian and pimpmomager Kris Jenner, pictured above at this week’s Los Angeles Clippers vs. Dallas Mavericks game were mercilessly booed during the game. They family was attending to support Lamar Odom, who now plays for the Mavericks following his trade from the Lakers.

A witness at the game tells the HollywoodLife blog yesterday: “During last night’s (Jan. 18) game between the Clippers and the Mavericks, the Kardashians were put on the jumbotron a few times, and it focused strongly on Kim,” says the source adding, “The fans booed her much worse then they did when Kris Humphries was here on Monday (Jan. 16).”

Indeed, other sources who attended the game reveal Kimmie and her fam were severely booed. Ouch!

OLD NAVY QUESTIONS KIM KARDASHIAN’S REPUTATION IN LAWSUIT!

Meanwhile, when a report came out earlier this month revealing the Kardashians were planning to expand their crumbling empire by starting a magazine completely dedicated to all things and news Kardashian, many assumed it was a joke, because for starters, the family’s a joke. Well, folks it turns out pimpmomager Kris was actually negotiating a deal with America Media Inc (publisher of Shape, Star, National Enquirer and Radar Online) to start the mag!

Unfortunately for the greedy Kardashian matriarch the deal went sour after she demanded too much kontrol.

The NY Post is reporting the over zealous Kris killed the deal after demanding she get approval on all stories about her family before publication.

Sources tell The Post AMI “balked” at Kris’ demand to have editorial approval over every AMI publication (remember this includes Star Magazine and other mags) to ensure positive wall-to-wall coverage of the overexposed reality family.

The AMI executives stated the obvious which is that no one wants to read all positive “Kardashian krap” being fed to us by the family. Another argument was that the Keeping Up With The Kardashians family already had a television deal with E! and other media outlets who would be getting better scoops on them.

REPORT – KIM KARDASHIAN PLANNED HER ENGAGEMENT TO KRIS HUMPHRIES!

Also, following last week’s Star magazine report about Khloe, which included claims by her former stepmoms that she was not a real Kardashian, pimpmomager Kris finally realized AMI would NOT be bowing down to her krazy demands. “AMI chief David Pecker made it clear that there was no way he was going to tell his editors what stories they could and couldn’t do,” reveals a source.

And just what did an angry Kris Jenner do in turn? She simply decided to pull all Kardashian-related product ads from Star Magazine.

Pimpmomager Kris might want to be careful in the bridges she decides to burn as it apepars the entire world pretty much hates her family at the moment, and are patiently awaiting their demise from our televisions and mags.

As we reported this week, our weekend bombshell report about just how fake this family’s E! reality show is made national headlines via ABC News, GMA and Inside Edition. Even better, the E! network had no comment when contacted to respond to the story.

According to a report, past Bachelor and Bachelorette contestants have had it with the show’s super strict rules and are not taking it any more!

The coalition or planned class action lawsuit rather is being led by Jesse Csincsak, winner of the Bachelorette season 4 with Deanna Pappas.

In an interview with CupidsPulse.com, Jesse reveals he and other show contestants have spoken to attorneys and are in discussion to file the lawsuit against the show’s creators Mike Fleiss and Elan Gale.

“Once you’re on the show, they own you,” Jesse said. ”Even when your contract is up, they still interfere in your life and prevent you from promoting other brands and making money.”

Jesse, who does a lot of interviews/blogs posts about the shows and even hosts Bachelor(ette) events, reveals the last straw for him came when Gale contacted his business partners and other companies telling them not to work with him. Jesse adds that the producers have also contacted former other show contestants threatening to blacklist them if they participate in any of his events.

Jesse, who is now married to former Bachelor contestant Ann Lueders, explains how the planned class action lawsuit came about. “I had planned to file my own lawsuit last month but after discussions with numerous people and former Bachelor contestants, we realized that this issue is much bigger than me,” he said.

And in a separate interview with Star magazine earlier this month, the former pro skateboarder referred to Fleiss as a bully. “He thinks he owns me and can keep me from making money. I just want to feed my family,” said Jesse, adding: “I want Fleiss to treat me like he wants to be treated… if he wants me to leave him alone, he needs to leave me alone.”

Yikes, this is certain to get ugly. It, however, appears Jesse and others have a real shot at winning this case as back in 2003, the show’s producers sued former Bachelor Season 4 star, Bob Guiney, accusing him of violating his contract by promoting his cd and music video. Bob ended up winning that case.

It was also reported last month that the show filed a lawsuit against Steve Carbone, who operates the site RealitySteve.com, known for revealing pretty accurate spoilers about the show. The lawsuit alleged Steve was offering contestants financial incentives to break their show contracts.
