According to a bizarre report, Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Taylor Armstrong watched a video depicting abuse and taped the reaction for her personal website.

Radar Online is reporting that Taylor, who has alleged she was abused by now deceased husband Russell Armstrong, recently watched the viral video of a Texas judge beating his cerebal palsy- stricken daughter for illegally downloading music on the Internet, all while filming her reaction.

The reason? According to sources, Taylor was simply viewing the video to confront her fears about abuse. Taylor has claimed she grew up in an abusive household. Her psychiatrist, Dr. Charles Sophy, was reportedly with her while she viewed the video.

A source goes on to explain why Taylor decided to tape her reaction. “Taylor wanted to confront her fears about domestic violence, and she had heard so much about the judge beating his daughter. She filmed it for it to be released on her website to educate women about domestic violence,” reveals a source.

“Taylor was absolutely gutted watching the video. She cried, and she got very, very angry. She saw herself in the judge’s daughter, vulnerable and unable to fight back. Taylor thought it took tremendous courage for Hillary to film the brutal beating, and to finally release it. Taylor kept saying that could have been my daughter Kennedy. Even though Russell never laid a hand on their daughter, there was no guarantee that if he had lived, he wouldn’t have done that,” adds the source.

Taylor reportedly plans on posting her reaction to the video on her website around the same time her book will be released. Taylor’s tell-all memoir Hiding From Reality, My Story of Love, Loss, and Finding The Courage Within, is slated to be released in February, 2012.

Allrighty, moving on to a recent interview given by Taylor in which she opens up about her struggles during the past year.

Talking to the Hollyscoop blog this week while she was doing some charity work, Taylor admits she has had a rough year. “We’re just continuing with our holiday tradition,” said Taylor. “Obviously things are different for us but at the same time you know really blessed to have a lot of support.”

Taylor was also asked about her behavior on the current season of the RHOBH which involves constantly lashing out at her costars. “This has been a really tough year for me,” Taylor says of her behavior. “And I think people are figuring out why, but at the same time that was my reality at the time and I’m certainly not proud of all of it but all I can do is move on.”

Despite everything, Taylor reveals she is trying to keep things positive for 5-year-old daughter Kennedy by “just letting her be a kid.” “We just went out and got our tree and we have the whole house decorated and just letting her be a kid,” she told Hollyscoop. “We’re going to have our family over and… being here it really helps me to remember to be thankful for all the support that we have.”

The Kardashian drama is never ending! The latest is a new report by Life & Style magazine which states Kris Humphries’ dad is considering writing a tell-all about the Kardashian family!

While Kris, 26, signed a confidentiality agreement as part of his wedding pre-nup to Kim Kardashian, none of his family members did, which allows them to spill whatever details they want about the Keeping Up With the Kardashians clan.

The latest issue of Life & Style claims, Kris’ father, William Humphries, expressed his interest in an explosive, blockbuster tell-all book. “I’d love to write a book,” he reportedly stated. “It’s important to him that Kris’ side of the story is out there,” notes a Humphries family friend.

“Kris has told his father everything,” reveals a Kardashian family friend. “They have no control over what William says,” the insider confirms. “And he has many stories to tell.” Another source says, “It’s Kim’s worst nightmare. The Kardashians have no control over what William says.” A rep for Kris, however, denies that any of the Humphries clan has plans to write a tell-all.

Life & Style adds that an expose would not only expose Kimmie, but her entire family. “Nothing gets in the way of business for them,” claims the Humphries insider. “Kris was just a pawn.”

So what kind of secrets could the Humphries spill about Kimmie? Sources state these could include bedroom secrets, Kim spending “six hours in hair and makeup throughout the day” as well as scandalous secrets about their reality shows! Sources close to Kris also reveal he believes Kim and her pimp mom Kris failed to disclose “all the sources of money she made from the wedding.”

Meanwhile, the current issue of Star magazine is reporting that Kimmie Kakes, who refused to return her wedding gifts despite the fact that her marriage only lasted 72 days, had good reason for her decision.

According to the mag, Kim has cashed most of the gifts she received at a luxury boutique in Hollywood in order to buy Rolex watches for her family! “Kim had never had the gifts delivered,” an insider reveals. “The store was still waiting for her to give them an address.”

Instead, Kim reportedly paid a visit to the boutique the week after she filed for divorce to inform them she didn’t want the gifts sent to her. “[Kris] told Kim from the beginning that he wanted her to return the wedding gifts to guests who bought them,” a source reveals. “But she totally ignored him and just went ahead and did this. He thinks it’s disgusting.”

Moving on to Barbara Walters, who is now bashing the Kardashian family after putting them on her list of the 10 Most Fascinating People of 2011.

In the interview, which was taped 25 days before Kim filed for divorce in October, Kim tells Barbara “Married life is good” when asked about her marriage. Poor Baba Wawa now feels the Kardashians can’t be trusted.

“It’s not that she lied — that was the first interview that we did, we did it in October,” Barbara revealed on The View yesterday.

However, Barbara was a tad upset as she stated pimpmomager for the Kardashian family, Kris Jenner, had promised her that nothing would happen between the time the interview was taped and the program’s airing. And as we all know, a lot has happened since including Kim’s divorce filing and Kourtney Kardashian’s pregnancy announcement.

“You cannot trust the Kardashians,” said Barbara. Ouch!

It gets even better as Barbara politely let the Kardashian clan know they have no talent during her interview with them. “You don’t really act; you don’t sing; you don’t dance,” said Barbara to the family. “You don’t have any — forgive me — any talent!”

The Kardashian’s defense? Their talent is “entertaining” people via their reality shows. Kim stated they’re “still entertaining” to the viewers who watch their shows, explaining that it’s actually “more of a challenge for you to go on a reality show, and get people to fall in love with you for being you.” Yes folks, apparently that takes talent!

Barbara also asked about the now infamous sex tape with Ray J a.k.a the main reason we know who the Kardashians are! When asked if it was a good thing, a stammering Kim responded, “I’ve made mistakes in my life for sure.” Pimpmomager Kris quickly came to her favorite daughter’s rescue adding: “It was devastating for the whole family. You cry yourself to sleep for a few nights, then you hire an attorney.” Sure it was!

Good news and bad news for Teen Mom star Amber Portwood as the Indiana Child Protective Services has now closed its investigation against her.

The bad news? Her baby daddy Gary Shirley was awarded primary physical custody of their 3-year-old daughter Leah. “Today amongst all days is the single greatest day for the rest of my life:)…My daughter officially mine. More than before. Love you so much @leah_leann so were hitting up some Disney in Florida to celebrate. :)” tweeted the classy Gary yesterday. And just in case you forgot, yes, Gary did open up a Twitter account for his 3-year-old.

Gary’s lawyer Jeff Lockwood also confirmed the news to Hollybaby. “Today the Department of Child Services dismissed their case against both parents,” Jeff stated Wednesday. “Now that DCS is out of way, regular court order comes into play.”

AMBER PORTWOOD REVEALS SHE HAS EXTREME BIPOLAR

So what does this mean for Amber, 21? Jeff explains, “Gary is the primary custodian which means he has custody of Leah and Amber has visitation rights.”

Jeff adds that Leah will be with Amber every other weekend, Friday through Sunday, while alternating holidays and time in the summer with Gary.

While Amber admits Gary now has primary physical custody, she gives an interesting explanation to E! Online. “Gary and I have joint custody and Leah only lives with him because they [CPS] felt she wasn’t safe with me when my house got vandalized,” states Amber.

Amber also adds that Gary and her are doing much better as co-parents to Leah. “We’re getting along fine, not fighting,” she said. “Everything is finally good.”

The investigation by Child Services began last year after MTV aired footage of Amber physically attacking Gary in the presence of their daughter, Leah. In fact, Amber was arrested for domestic violence and ultimately received a suspended two-year sentence, plus two years of probation. Amber has had an especially hard time in the past year which included a suicide attempt back in June followed by a 2-month stint in rehab.

Fans of The X Factor are still outraged following last week’s shocking elimination which sent teen favorite Rachel Crow packing!

Judge Nicole Scherzinger felt the most criticism as her decision to allow a voting deadlock when she eliminated Rachel over Marcus Canty ultimately sent Rachel packing.

See, after Rachel and Marcus — who were in the Bottom two last Thursday — sang their last chance songs, judge L.A. Reid picked Rachel to go home. Simon Cowell and Paula Abdul then voted off Marcus. This left the last and deciding vote to Nicole. Nicole, who perhaps failed to realize her duties as a judge, then stated she didn’t want to be the deciding vote and picked Rachel to send the vote into a deadlock.

Unfortunately for 13-year-old Rachel, she ended up having the least amount of votes by the public, and was sent packing. Fans of the show were livid with Nicole for her indecisiveness, that is until TMZ posted a story stating Paula was the one who told Nicole to vote off Rachel.

In a video clip obtained by TMZ, Paula can be heared whispering to Nicole, “Just let it go to a deadlock.” Which is exactly what Nicole did.

Paula is now defending herself, stating her comments were taken out of context during her Monday night appearance on the Jimmy Kimmel show alongside Nicole and the other judges. Though I’m not quite sure how “just let it go to a deadlock” could be taken out of context.

“That’s how they interpreted it,” said Paula of TMZ’s spin on the video footage. “I adore [Nicole] and know what she was feeling like [having to send someone home.]” Nicole added, “In the moment and under pressure, it’s not as easy to say ‘you’re going home.’ I own the decision I made right then.”

As for Rachel, things are looking up for the teen with TMZ reporting Disney is now looking to sign her… and have already set up a meeting to go through a list of opportunities including TV, movies and radio.

Meanwhile, Rachel’s breakdown upon hearing she was eliminated from the show (she started brawling and fell to the ground) now has people questioning whether the show needs to raise its age limit as the younger ones are simply unable to deal with the public scrutiny. Another example of this was 15-year-old Astro’s meltdown a while back upon being told he was in the bottom 2. He first refused to perform before ultimately apologizing.

In today’s surprise, a new episode of the Real Housewives of Atlanta will be airing tonight on Bravo! But more on that below.

First, following Nene Leakes’ claims that she is “rich… very rich” due to the Trump checks she received from doing Celebrity Apprentice, it now appears she might have fibbed a lot little. A Bravo housewife fibbing? You don’t say!

“While you were running your mouth, I was running to the bank … depositing a Trump check!” NeNe claimed to Sheree Whitfield on the RHOA season opener adding, “I’m rich, bitch!” And to further prove her wealth to millions of strangers viewers, the Nene was seen looking at a $9 million dollar home in Miami.

However, Donald Trump Jr. is now speaking out against Nene’s claims, telling the Wetpaint blog that if the Nene is indeed rich or very rich rather, it is not due to any checks from his dad Donald Trump.

When asked about Nene’s claims of wealth via Donald, Trump Jr. told Wetpaint, “Honestly, I have no idea.” He continued, “All the celebrities on the show play for charity. She received a small appearance fee, sure, but that was it.”

Trump Jr. added: “And as far as I know, she’s not involved with any of our other business or corporations. So I’m not sure what she’s talking about.” Ouch!

NENE LEAKES THREATENS TO QUIT RHOA IF SHE DOESN’T GET OWN SPINOFF!

So just how much did Nene earn on Celebrity Apprentice? Well that exact amount is unknown but Piers Morgan, who won the 1st season of the show back in 2008, revealed he and his castmates only received about $25,000 each to do the show. So perhaps that amount has since gone up to $9 million in a span of 3 years! Thus making the Nene very rich!

Nene has since backtracked on her “very rich” comments claiming she simply meant she was spiritually wealthy. Uh uh.

Meanwhile, the ratings for the 4th season of the RHOA continues to soar! With over 3.3 million viewers tuning in for Sunday’s episode, the series continues to remain the highest rated Bravo housewives franchise. In fact, the recent episode of RHOA was seen by 1.1 million more viewers than the still very impressive 2.2 million viewers that watched the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Monday night. It appears the RHOA ladies and their manufactured drama are here to stay!

Moving on to tonight’s all new episode of the RHOA! Yes, Bravo has decided to air a new full-episode tonight.

On the 7th episode this season titled ‘Law By Sheree,‘ Shereé is served with legal papers, and turns to Phaedra for representation. The two confidently face Sheree’s ex in court, but to their dismay, he has a trick up his sleeve. Kim and Kroy bring baby KJ home and chaos erupts in the house. On an all-new episode of “Kandi Koated Nights,” Kandi chats with guests Marlo Hampton and baller boyfriend Charles Grant. One of Kandi’s co-hosts asks Charles what it was like to date NeNe and it doesn’t take long for the gossip to spread.

The episode airs at 9/8c and a preview clip is below!

Ready or not, the ladies of Basketball Wives LA will be returning for a second season!

The Insider is confirming that VH1 has greenlit an all new season though no date has been set on when it will return to airwaves. Sources reveal Jackie Christie will be returning despite the fact that her costars have repeatedly stated they want nothing to do with her. Can’t blame VH1 though because Jackie brings the cray and the drama!

Even better, Wacky Jackie is also reportedly working to get her own spinoff show!

“Jackie will have a full plate in 2012 as she prepares to release her new book aimed couples, and how to focus on intimacy. We’re also told she just shot a pilot for BET,” states The Insider.

Interesting. This, however, wouldn’t mark the first time Jackie’s had her own reality show as she and her husband, retired NBA player Doug Christie, actually had a show on BET back in 2006 titled The Christies Committed.

TELL US – EXCITED ABOUT A SECOND SEASON? WOULD YOU WATCH A JACKIE SPINOFF?
