Andy Cohen also assures us this season will be one to watch! Andy tweeted yesterday, “Just watched two episodes of new season #RHOC – omg might be best season yet!!!”
In addition to newbie Heather, Bravo has also announced another new addition to the show — Sarah Winchester, who is being described as a “friend of the housewives” a la Brandi Glanville and Dana Wilkey of the RHOBH. A photo of Sarah is also below as well as her bio!
The new season premieres Tuesday, February 7 at 9pm ET/PT on Bravo.
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!
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.
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 Bachelorand Bachelorettecontestants 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.

The 19-year-old mother of 2-year-old twins (Ali and Aleeah) was photographed above, with her fiance Jeremy Calvert, exactly a week ago trying to go incognito while smoking in West Virginia.
According to the photo agency which snapped Leah on January 12, she had just gotten into a car accident, crashing her brand new Chevy Suburban and was looking stressed.
Reports came out last week that Leah was pregnant again with twins, but she quickly took to Twitter to deny the report. She, however, continues to remain mum on her pregnancy and engagement.
Jeremy confirmed the pregnancy news earlier this month, also revealing he proposed to her over the holidays after just five months of dating. It’s safe to assume the pregnancy came before the engagement.
Leah has been receiving a ton of backlash from fans of the MTV hit show, rightfully so, who feel having baby no. 3 at the tender age of 19 isn’t the smartest choice.
As we reported back then, there are major risks associated with smoking while pregnant. Below are some according to WedMD:
Lower the amount of oxygen available to you and your growing baby.
Increase the chances of miscarriage and stillbirth.
Increase the risk that your baby is born prematurely and/or born with low birth weight.
Increase your baby’s risk of developing respiratory (lung) problems
In addition to the above risks, smoking while pregnant can also result in lifelong effects on a baby’s brain. Children of pregnant smokers are especially likely to have learning disorders, behavioral problems and relatively low IQs.

Jenelle, 20, is pictured above with shackles on her feet in a black and white striped jail uniform as she stood to face charges in Brunswick County, North Carolina on Tuesday morning.
Jenelle’s attorney Dustin Sullivan tells Reality Tea that the MTV reality star was charged with Domestic Violence Protection Order Violation on Monday night. After spending Monday night in jail, she had her first appearance in court yesterday morning. Her bond was set at $1,000.
Dustin also reveals that Jenelle’s next court date has been set for February 6, 2012. She is now facing 75 days of active jail time.
Calling the charges against Jenelle “absurd and ridiculous,” Dustin states to Reality Tea: “Jenelle has been doing outstanding on probation the last 7 months. She has passed every drug and alcohol test that has been given to her on a weekly basis. She has completed all of the necessary classes required of her and is up to date on all of her payments.”
The two arrests in the past week stem from Jenelle’s issues with her former roommate, Hannah Inman. Jenelle is accused of violating a no order contact placed against her by communicating threats and harassing phone calls.
As for Jenelle, it appears she is attempting to take some time away from social media in light of recent events. She tweeted yesterday, “BYE BYE TWITTER. DEACTIVATING FOR A WHILE. :[.” Though as of this morning, she has yet to shut down her Twitter page.
To sum this up, Jenelle is currently facing five different charges. These include two no contact orders, communicating threats and harassing phone calls as well as the latest one of domestic violence protection order violation. As we reported yesterday, Jenelle is at risk for more jail time if she is deemed to have violated her probation from beating up a former friend in a taped fight last year.

According to a report by Life & Style magazine, Kris Humphries, a.k.a Kim Kardashian’s husband of 72 days, is planning to get their reality show canceled before its January 29 scheduled finale.
The reason? Kris feels Kourtney and Kim Take New York is being selectively edited to make him look like a jerk and Kim a victim. Kris is definitely on to something as we reported over the weekend that a “heart to heart” scene between Kim and her pimpmomager Kris Jenner, in which Kim reveals she’s having marital issues, was actually taped in a TV studio in Los Angeles in December and not in Dubai in October as the show claimed.
Life & Style adds that Kris is consulting with his lawyer, Lee Hutton III, about steps to take to get the show canceled, while also preparing to sue his estranged wife Kimmie. “He’s not going to be vilified,” reveals an insider close to Kris. “Kris knows his rights. He will sue.”
Apparently, the breaking point for Kris was the fake Dubai scene with Kim and her mom. But it’s not for the reasons we exposed this weekend but rather because Kris noticed the obvious voice overs in the phony car scene.
“Kris was very pissed off at what he saw on TV,” a friend of his reveals to Life & Style. “He had to be calmed down. It was noticeable that Kim was doing voice-overs after the fact — the editing was horrible.” While that episode aired, Kris lashed out on Twitter writing: “I can’t wait for the truth to come out. People will be surprised — or maybe they won’t.”
It will be interesting to see if Kris can succeed in getting the show canceled as the E! network will definitely fight to the death to keep one of their highest rated shows on the air even going as far as to get Kimmie to create fake scenes for sympathy points.
Meanwhile, the negative press for the Kardashian family just keeps on coming. Radar Online is reporting that Khloe Kardashian’s husband Lamar Odom had a wild night with strippers at a Washington D.C. strip club on January 8.
Multiple eyewitnesses tell Radar that Lamar, 32, dropped hundreds of dollars on dancers and at one point moved to a dimly lit corner of Stadium Club strip club with a few strippers. Yikes. “Strippers were grinding on him,” reveals an onlooker.
Lamar is said to have visited the strip club with some of his Dallas Mavericks’ teammates hours before the 2011 NBA champions were honored by President Barack Obama during a White House ceremony on January 9.
All these seems pretty harmless except that sources add that at one point during the ordeal, Lamar disappeared into a private room with one stripper who was a “Khloe look-a-like!”
“That’s where the VIPs go when they don’t want to be seen publicly with a stripper,” the source said. “Lamar disappeared into the back of the venue where the private rooms are. He was there for quite awhile, but eventually came back to hang with the strippers in the main area again. The stripper that gave him most of his lap dances was a complete Khloe look-a-like.”
Even worse for Khloe, certain patrons at the strip club were tweeting to her about Lamar’s actions while he was there. @IamBentleyEvans wrote, “Oh oh Lamar Odom gon (sic) be at Stadium. Khloe can sleep well tonight. The girls r too pretty and not muscular enough for him.” Ouch! While @Dai_laSoul tweeted, “Lamar Odom at stadium n dc ACTING BAD @KhloeKardashian.”
And finally, Kimmie Kakes continues to be the butt of jokes of the entire universe. On Sunday night, poor Kimmie suffered another blow to her ego when Ricky Gervais, host of the Golden Globes Awards, made some highlarious jokes at her expense
During his opening monologue, Ricky stated: “The Golden Globes are to the Oscars what Kim Kardashian is to Kate Middleton. A bit louder, a bit trashier, a bit drunker and more easily bought. Allegedly. Nothing’s been proved.”
Kim, however, wants us to know she found Ricky’s jokes to be very funny! Perhaps someone should let her know we are laughing at her and definitely not with her. Sources close to Kim tell TMZ she gets the joke and “thought it was funny.”
And yes, TMZ, which appears to get a lot of original stories from the Kardashians is ignoring evidence which shows Kimmie staged a major scene on her reality show to report to us on her feelings on being made fun of. I miss the old TMZ, you know, the one that actually reported on things that mattered.
Lastly, while Kimmie has vowed to remain single following the backlash from her quickie marriage, it seems the always desperate one is eager to send out a message to all available suitors out there! Below is an interesting twitpic Kimmie sent out a week ago!

Last night, Cedric was shown “crashing” the opening party of Lisa’s SUR restaurant in an attempt to make up with Lisa. Lisa ultimately refused to make up with him, instead asking Cedric to leave her party.
Today, Cedric is telling Reality Tea, via his rep, that he was invited to the party, while also making some interesting allegations about Lisa’s hubby Ken Todd, alleging their “loveless, sexless marriage” is on “lie support.”
Below is Cedric’s full statement to Reality Tea:
“As viewers have seen all season, and especially on last night’s overly scripted episode of Real Housewives,Lisa Vanderpump is a bitter, conniving woman who will do anything for fame (and a terrible actress)! She keeps saying what I “did” to her was “vicious” but she never really says what I allegedly did.
Well, let me tell you what she did: When Lisa discovered the truth about her husband’s prostitutes, affairs and love child, she made the choice to stay with a cheater so she could continue on her desperate quest for fame. Then she kicked me to the curb, filed a false police complaint and conspired with her friend, the Editor of Us Weekly to defame and slander me.
And you gotta give her credit. It’s worked, so far. She’s more famous than ever; her loveless, sexless marriage is still alive, albeit on life support; and I’ve been marginalized. But the truth is starting to leak out and soon everyone will know of her secret extramarital love affair and the truth about her vicious attacks on me.
What viewers didn’t see last night was the weeks of back-and-forth negotiations between my manager and [name removed], the Executive Producer of Real Housewives. Dave cleared my invite (and the “olive branch” script) with Lisa. In fact, they even discussed a possible spinoff starring Lisa and me, if, according to [name removed], everything went well at the Sur party.
As proof, I’ve asked my manager to release a few of the many emails between him and [name removed] (below).
Lisa has succeeded thus far in trashing my name and manipulating the other housewives. But the race is long and I’m confident that as the truth slowly comes out, the public will come to realize Lisa’s pretty facade hides a heartless, bitter, rotting core.
Thanks to my friends and fans who have stuck with me throughout this painful process. It’s been a rough year but with your help and support, I’ve landed on my feet and I know the best is yet to come!
P.S. SUR: Sexy Unique Restaurant? Really? WTF!”
Indeed, Cedric also supplied us with the emails exchanged between his manager and the executive producer of the series (we have decided to blur out their name).
The emails, posted below, gives us a good behind the scenes look at the way these shows are filmed. The RHOBH producer confirms the time Cedric will be arriving to Lisa’s party and states that while Lisa has been warned Cedric is coming to attempt to make up with her, the other housewives are not aware and will be genuinely surprised to see him.
To sum this up, it appears a producer for the show invited Cedric to Lisa’s party. Lisa was given a heads up, but her reaction to Cedric and his attempt to make up with her appear to have been genuine. This doesn’t come as a major surprise as the producers of these shows are always trying to stir things up for drama a.k.a adding the sister-in-law you hate to your cast, or adding your nemesis to the show only for the two of you to become friends. Hey, at least they’re not going into film studios in Hollywood to film fake scenes, months after the fact. Coughs the Kardashians coughs.
Written in July 2011, the emails also confirms that Lisa was/is indeed in talks with Bravo for her own spinoff. An excerpt from the email reads: “Lisa is in negotiations with Bravo for a potential spin-off that would focus on the staff at Sur. That deal has been in the works for a while. All along I’ve been saying that it’s too bad Lisa and Cedric had their falling out because Cedric would’ve been perfect fit for that project.”
Do I believe the Housewives series are fake? Absolutely not. I believe most of it is real (a.k.a. the drama between Kim and Kyle Richards) with some added manufactured drama (a.k.a. producers inviting Cedric to Lisa’s party). The housewives series is what I would call ‘Manufactured Drama’ while the Kardashians’ series is what I would call ‘Scripted Drama.’
