Big Brother 13 Dominic

In what appears to be a trend to eliminate the strong members of the Newbie alliance on Big Brother, 25-year-old Dominic Briones found himself the latest Houseguest to be voted out.

In a new interview with DigitalSpy, Dominic reveals his true feelings about Danielle, whether he regrets aligning with her, and of course what he would have done differently in the game. Excerpts from his interview below –

You shared a flirty relationship with Daniele – if you’d stayed longer, would you ever have taken that further or was it more of a friendship than anything else?
“No, I would have not taken it further in the house because in there you can’t tell how someone really is. Although Daniele seemed like a great person in the house, you never can tell how people really are while you are in there.”

If you could play the game again, would you do anything differently?
“Play with the veterans sooner and not stick with the newbies during the first two weeks of the game. I would have aligned with the vets and started cutting newbies from the beginning.”

You accused your fellow newbies of being “spineless jellyfish” as they’ve yet to make bold moves. Do you wish that you would have kept a lower profile for the first few weeks in the hope of seeming like less of a threat?
“Yes, if it was possible to keep a lower profile with the group of newbies that were there I definitely would have done so. But coming into the game just being a young, athletic male partnered with another male made me a target from day one.”

You were going to go along with the plan to backdoor Jeff, but did you really see him as your biggest competitor in the game? If not him, who posed the biggest threat?
“No, I saw Brendon and Rachel as the biggest competitors in the game. But you never want to take out the number one targets because that makes you the biggest target. So taking out Jeff would have split up the veteran alliance and given me a chance to actually gain some numbers and some power.”

Moving on to tonight’s new episode when the new twist will finally be revealed by host Julie Chen! And just as suspected, it is indeed to bring back one of the eliminated HGs! There was a slight glitch on the CBS website yesterday which showed fans the new twist. While CBS has since deleted the link, a screenshot (posted below) was captured by “Big Brother” fan site Hamster.

This twist is however different from past similar twists. The viewers will vote for one of the soon to be four eliminated HGs to return to the game (Keith, Cassi, Dominic, or Jordan/Brendon). Whoever receives the most viewer votes will then have to go up against next week’s eliminated HG in some sort of challenge. Whoever wins that challenge will be back in the game! According to a poll done by BigBrotherLeak, Cassi is leading the votes on who fans want to see back in the game followed closely by Dominic. Brendon was also added to the poll and is coming in third. Will America vote the same way? Will be interesting!

And finally, Big Brother alum Mike “Boogie” Malin finds himself in some legal hot water today as one of his business partners, Shereene Arazm, is claiming Mike and his other business partner, VH1 reality star Lonnie Moore, “illegally siphoned away [money]” from the Geisha House, LLC restaurant group for years in order to “support their lavish party-boy lifestyles.”

The shocker however comes when Shereene alleges in the suit that Mike Boogie not only gambled away a lot of that money but also used some of it “to have multiple sexual encounters with various older men during which Malin would live out fetish role play fantasies.” Holy cow! Did she just out Mike Boogie? That would explain why he wanted nothing to do with Erica during the all star season no?

As for Mike, he filed his own lawsuit earlier this week alleging Shereene was trying to extort and blackmail him. Mike also claims Shereene had people hack into his emails and illegally tap his phone. Wowzers.

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.

Following this week’s finale of the Bachelorette, many are now wondering what ever happened to that other Bachelorette, you know, Ali Fedotowsky from last season.

Well according to PEOPLE magazine, Ali has postponed her wedding to fiance Roberto Martinez. The reason? It all has to do with an injury.

“We had a date set, and that date has now passed,” Ali, 26, told PEOPLE on Tuesday. “The decision to postpone [the wedding] was very difficult. I definitely shed some tears.”

Ali, who fractured her femur back in June, underwent surgery in July and is still recovering. “I want to walk down the aisle,” she said, “I don’t want to limp down the aisle.”

Ali however assures us all is well between her and Roberto. In fact the couple spent their would be wedding day together. “It was one of the best days we’ve had, just me and him,” said Ali, adding that she feels no need to rush the nuptials.

“In my mind, Roberto is my husband,” she said. “We live together; we do everything together; we plan for the future together; we fight just like a good old married couple. The only thing that’s not saying “I’m married” is another ring on my finger and a piece of paper.”

Ali is however staying mum on whether or not a new wedding day has been set.

Days after Taylor Armstrong revealed her estranged husband Russell Armstrong was physically abusive to her, more of Russell’s skeletons are now starting to come out.

As it turns out, Taylor is not the first woman to accuse Russell of physical abuse. In fact two of his exes (an ex-girlfriend and an ex-wife) had to get restraining orders against him, and in 1997, he pled guilty to battery.

According to a new bombshell report by RadarOnline, Russell was married to ex-wife Barbara Armstrong in 1997 and separated shortly after their son Aiden was born. In court documents obtained, Barbara alleges that Russell beat her when she was six months pregnant: “Russell threw me to the ground and slapped me across the face….the police were called to Russell’s and my residence during our marriage because Russell hit me, blackened my eyes, kicked me in the back, threw crystal drinking glasses at me, and spit on me.”

In the sworn declaration given in late 1997, Barbara states Russell: “Pleaded guilty to battery and said that he understood that he had to go to an anger management program. That was the first anger management program that Russell was ordered to attend.”

The allegations get even worse as Barbara ultimately divorced Russell and remarried. Russell however continued to see his son Aiden every other weekend. However on August 6, 2004, Barbara states in her declaration that she received a phone call from Russell’s then-girlfriend, Claudia Haro, who told her she “saw Russell slap Aiden across the face, very hard. This slap was so hard that Ms. Haro heard it across the room. Ms. Haro has seen and heard Russell slap Aiden’s face very hard on other occasions.”

This led Barbara to get a restraining order against Russell and request that an off-duty police officer monitor visitation with their son, Aiden.

And in a different sworn declaration by Russell’s then girlfriend Claudia, she also stated that Russell hit her. After accusing Claudia of sleeping with an ex-boyfriend, she alleges Russell “hit me in the face so hard that my neck snapped back….I got out of Russell’s car and dialed 911. However, I was put on hold. I was standing next to Russell’s car with my cell phone in my hand when he walked around the car, pulled my cell phone out of my hand and he broke it by pulling the top part of my flip phone off. Russell then grabbed both of my wrists so hard that it hurt.”

When contacted by RadarOnline, Russell’s lawyer gave the following statement – “Russell Armstrong is not convicted of any offenses. He categorically denies the seven-year-old allegations from the family law proceeding.”

Wowzers. RadarOnline is also reporting Taylor’s abuse claims against Russell will be addressed on the upcoming season of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. “Russell didn’t want the specific incidents discussed on the show, and it wasn’t. However, Taylor strongly hints at the physical abuse, along with the emotional abuse. Russell doesn’t want to be perceived as a monster,” revealed a Bravo insider.

The insider adds that Taylor “never called the police on Russell after a fight, which she says would turn violent at times, because she thought it was her fault. Taylor was in denial, which is very typical when a woman is in that situation.”

Vienna who has admitted to getting breast implants in the past says she is now done with surgery, adding that she “definitely” won’t be getting anything else done in the near future. “I’m not saying get 20 surgeries, but if there’s something you don’t like about yourself, go ahead and change it!” she advises.

Despite all of the negative tabloid reports, it appears newly engaged Bachelorette couple Ashley Hebert and J.P. Rosenbaum are moving full speed ahead!

The couple appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live! during which they dished on their future together as well as their wedding plans.

Though we just saw their engagement play out on Monday night, the proposal actually took place back in May. The two have had to see each other in secret in other to keep the show’s ending under wraps. Ashley, 27, and J.P., 34, revealed they had been having chaperoned dates in secret every two weeks since filming ended.

In fact J.P. reveals he became dependent on technology to keep in touch with his fiance. “We live on Skype,” he told Kimmel. “I don’t watch any TV any more. It’s work, gym, three hours of Skype, sleep.”

Ashley once again talked about her plans to move in with J.P., who is a construction manager in New York, after she finishes dental school in September.

But perhaps the biggest surprise is that the couple is already planning their wedding! “We really want to focus on our engagement, but I’m thinking fall of next year!” gushed Ashley. And when it comes to Ashley’s sister, Chrystie, who made it clear she wasn’t a fan of JP’s on the finale, J.P. reveals Chrystie feels very differently today. “She’s been nothing but sweet and supportive since we got back,” J.P. told Kimmel. “It’s as is if I didn’t even know who that person was back in Fiji.”

Meanwhile, below is a photo of Ashley’s Neil Lane engagement ring! The 3.5-carat, central cushion-cut sparkler accented with 162 small, hand-set diamonds around a platinum band is reportedly valued at around $60,000.

The Real Housewives of Atlanta 3
As you all know by now the Real Housewives of Atlanta season 4 is currently filming, and according to a new report, the ladies are currently in South Africa!

In what has quickly become a Bravo ‘Housewives’ tradition, each of the ‘Housewives’ franchises take a yearly trip to fight away from home film for the show, well with the exceptoion of the recent Real Housewives of Miami season. They were too busy taking cooking lessons.

The Straight From The A blog states all of the Atlanta housewives, with the exception of Kim Zolciak who is nursing her new born, departed for South Africa days ago. Kim however tweeted goodbye to some of her costars, “@IamSheree @PhaedraParks love you guys! Have fun!!! Xxooo,” she wrote.

Bravo is reportedly footing the bill for the trip of course. While  Nene Leakes, Phaedra, Kandi, Sheree and Cynthia all made the trip, there’s no word yet on whether new housewife Marlo Hampton went with them or if she’s even allowed to leave the country, you know, considering her extensive criminal record. Oh well, here’s to hoping  the Nene behaves differently on this trip than she did in Miami on season 3!

Meanwhile, Kim recently tweeted a number of photos including a  pic of herself without her wig or any make up on! That must see photo is below along with other new photos of herself, her son and fiance Kroy!
