Hours after TMZ broke the news yesterday, MTV officially confirmed that not only will there be a 4th season of Jersey Shore, but it will be filming in Italy!
The MTV press release teases the ladies are excited “to trade gorillas for Italian stallions,” and that “this wacky and dysfunctional family is about to turn “the beautiful country” upside down.” More from the press release below –
“While the stateside ‘Jersey Shore’ locales have become iconic for our audience, it’s really the constantly evolving dynamic among the cast that keeps them coming back each season, and Europe is a fresh spin on a show that continues to reach new heights for us,” said Chris Linn, executive vice president of programming and head of production for MTV. “The cast is headed to the birthplace of the culture they love and live by. We can’t wait to see what erupts as a result.”
According to TMZ, MTV began working on getting visas for the entire cast and crew two months ago, and a source reveals the network has already lined up some of Vinny’s Italian relatives to host the Jersey gang for an authentic Guadagnino dinner.
Let’s hope the cast knows how to say ‘Gym, Tan, Laundry’ in Italiano! Filming is slated to begin in the spring.

If it seems just like a few months ago that Bristol Palin, her fiance Levi Jonhston and their son Tripp graced the cover of UsWeekly magazine declaring their love for one another, it’s because it was.
But so much as changed since then. The couple abruptly called it quits just weeks after the magazine cover came out, Bristol appeared on ABC’s Dancing With The Stars, and Levi went back to doing whatever it is he does.
Now fast forward to today as Levi has a new girlfriend and Bristol also has a new boyfriend. In fact Bristol appeared on the The Bob & Mark Show a few days ago, during which she reluctantly confirmed she is indeed dating Giancinto “Gino” Paoletti, a 20-year-old Alaska pipeline worker.
When asked about her new Arizona resident and 5-bedroom home, Bristol expressed nothing but joy. “I love the town that I live in. I love my house. Tripp’s happy; he’s healthy.” It has been rumored Bristol moved to Arizona to be nearer to her new beau Gino, who also resides in AZ.
And when it came to the Levi topic, Bristol, 20, did not hold back. When asked about the name change rumors which stemmed from a recent facebook posting by her in which she wrote, “Tripp Easton Mitchell Palin… PALIN!!!” Bristol revealed if it were up to her, Tripp’s last name would be Palin and Levi would no longer be his daddy.
“I’ve asked Levi [Johnston] to do it many different times, just get it out of the way,” said Bristol. “Just sign over his parental rights, but I don’t know if he will or if he wants to right now.” And just as an extra incentive to get Levi to abandon his child, Bristol adds that she’s willing to forgo any child support in order to keep full custody of their son.
So far, it seems Levi’s not budging.

According to a new TMZ report, Kelsey Grammer is now planning to tie the knot for the third time in February with fiance Kayte Walsh, and no longer in January as originally planned.
TMZ adds that the wedding, which is being planned for the last 2 weeks of February, will only take place if the judge in his divorce case with estranged wife, Real Housewives of Beverly Hills starCamille Grammer, ends their marriage this Wednesday during a scheduled hearing.
Kelsey’s lawyer filed new legal documents stating he has agreed to every condition Camille requested in order to get a divorce immediately, with the exception of one. That one condition is that Kelsey immediately provide Camille with $10 million bond until they negotiate the final settlement. Kelsey is claiming he cannot meet that condition at the moment.
Camille is still objecting to Kelsey being granted a divorce before their assets are divided. Meanwhile, Popeater is also reporting that Kelsey’s daughter from a previous marriage, Spencer Grammer, is engaged. Spencer, a 27-year-old actress who stars on ABC Family’s Greek is engaged to boyfriend James Hesketh.
According to an insider, “Camille and Spencer had no relationship. … And Spencer and her father are closer than ever since he split with Camille.” Photos of Spencer below.
And just days after Kyle Richardsissued a non-apology apology, Taylor Armstrongis also speaking out on the drama filled finale episode of the Beverly Hills housewives. According to the very delusional Taylor, she meant well with the confrontation conversation she initiated with Kim at her party, and also goes on to call Kim “unpredictable.” Excerpts from Taylor’s blog below –
“I often wonder if we would have had a nice first meeting in Sacramento, if things would have been different for us. At my birthday party, my intention was to sit down next to her (when I asked her friend for a moment with her) and have a talk about how I felt and what went wrong. When Kim stood up as opposed to my sitting down, I knew things were going to go badly. I could tell Kim wasn’t in the “mood” for aheart to heart. Lisa felt it was important for me to sort it out with Kim, but in retrospect, I should have said no and left it alone. Sometimes Kim says things she doesn’t mean (as do I) and with her, I really don’t understand where some of the content comes from. She is unpredictable but, that’s as much as I care to say about that. On occasion, you meet a person with whom you don’t seem to “click” and that, in my opinion, is what happened with Kim and I. We both had our guard up from the beginning and the results weren’t favorable. I wish Kim all the best and hope we can put our pointless bickering behind us.”
Perhaps it’s just me but isn’t “unpredictable” a fancier way of calling someone crazy? A very unnecessary dig. In her blog, Taylor goes on to state she regrets being a two faced sh*t stirrer “whatever part my comment played in” the finale episode.
After reading Taylor’s blog, I had to go back and watch the scene again and below is the exact words of exchange between Taylor and Kim at her party.
Taylor: You look… Could you excuse me for a minute? I just, Can I have a word with you for just a second?
Taylor: Lisa started asking me about why, how I all of a sudden got involved in this whole altercation between Camille and Kyle and I really feel like it only had to do with you kinda like trying to wind me up in LAX. And you know, I just want to kind of get that off my chest because I had nothing to do with it. And like you had all the opportunity in the world to stop what was happening between Camille and Kyle and instead it went on and on and on and I really feel like I shouldn’t have been dragged into it.
Kim: Really? I feel like none of you could let it die…
And that’s exactly how the supposed “heart to heart” conversation began except feel free to read Taylor’s words in a condescending tone. Quite frankly, I’m not a fan of all the bull and all the cruel insinuations regarding Kim. In a matter of days, Kim is now an insane unpredictable alcoholic and none of these ladies want to take responsibility for their actions. It’s that whole I’m sorry but…, I regret what I said but… None of Kim’s actions on the show have been unpredictable. Kyle was the one who tried to attack her in the limo, and Taylor was the one who flew off her rocker, not once, but twice whenever Kim tried to bring up her role in winding Camille up in NYC. And isn’t it funny that when Lisa brought up the same exact thing Kim had been trying to say, Taylor reacted very differently. I feel that all these comments and insinuations are truly disgusting, transparent, and a way for Taylor to deflect from her actions.
And I also have to ask, if Kim is an unpredictable alcoholic, why approach her? why confront her? This is regarding both Taylor and Kyle’s actions. Must say, not too many sane people will confront or try to attack an unpredictable alcoholic in public, especially one who is minding their business. As I said in the recap, something is not adding up.

Weeks after originally filing bankruptcy, RadarOnline is now reporting that Simon Barney’s bid has been rejected.
If you recall, the Real Housewives of Orange County star and estranged husband of Tamra Barney, filed bankruptcy back in December 2010. He petitioned for Chapter 13 bankruptcy, citing the nature of his debts as “primarily consumer debts incurred by an individual primarily for a personal, family, or household purpose.”
Simon revealed he had between 1-49 creditors, with assets and liabilities between $50,001 to $100,000. According to Radar, the bulk of Simon’s debt was in the form of credit cards, with a claim from Chase Bank to the tune of $20,640.00.
Chapter 13 doesn’t dismiss one’s debts but rather allows individuals to undergo a financial reorganization supervised by the courts. As for the reason Simon’s bankruptcy was rejected, it was because Simon “failed to file schedules, statements and/or plan for the bankruptcy.”
In other news, OC housewife Alexis Bellino recently celebrated her 34th birthday. Her pal and costar Gretchen Rossi helped throw her a small birthday bash and according to Alexis’ facebook, her husband Jim Bellino dropped by to surprise her.

It is common knowledge by now that Teen Mom 2 star Jenelle Evans, who might or might not be the new Amber Portwood, no longer has custody her of 1-year-old son Jace.
The reason? The 19-year-old signed over custody to her mother Barbara Evans. According to Jenelle, it was supposed to be temporary though Barbara continues to have custody of the kid since June 10. In fact, Jenelle is now being forced to pay her mother child support.
On tonight’s all new episode of Teen Mom 2, Jenelle attempts to explain why she handed her mom custody. “When you kicked me out, I realized I can’t take care of Jace on my own yet because I can’t even support myself,” Jenelle admits. “I am going to start making changes, but I’m just going to sign over custody because I don’t want to go through [court hearings] just to get the final decision from a judge.”
Barbara, 57, was planning to take Janelle to court for custody. And while Janelle claims she wants to regain custody of her son, she hasn’t been acting like it.
According to the HollywoodLife, Janelle has been in some legal trouble since giving up custody of Jace. She has been arrested but cleared of trespassing, and is currently due in court to face charges of breaking and entering plus marijuana possession.
“Hahahah @F1abraham at least i dont have some fake a** ti**es. HAHAHA,” Jenelle tweeted, following up with a second tweet to Amber, 20. “Its funny how the other original teen moms have to get jealous over us,” she said. “Get over it. grow up. yr as fake as that orange suntan and yr boobs.”
Jenelle also went on to write some things about MTV, blaming editing for some footage that showed her smoking weed. Following these tweets, her twitter page was deleted with MTV providing the following comment: “Jenelle decided to cancel her Twitter account, MTV had nothing to do with it.”

With a new reality show to promote on the E! network, Kim Kardashian took to twitter to do what she does best, which is being a professional attention whore trying to make headlines.
Yes, on Sunday morning, hours before Kourtney & Kim Take New York premiered on E!, Kim tweeted a cute childhood pic of her beau of the moment NBA player Kris Humphries. The caption? “I want my son to look like this!” Kimmy wrote.
“Hmmm, I think I can help you out,” replied Kris to Kim on twitter. That childhood photo of Kris is posted below and feel free to accept our apologies if you’ve lost a few brain cells since you started reading this story.
This might be a sign that things are getting serious between Kim and Kris, her beau of 2 months. Earlier last year Kim admitted, “I seriously thought by the time I was 30, I would have one [baby] and a bun in the oven…I cannot wait to have a baby just like [Mason].”
In other Kim/Kris news, she was also present to support her man during a game over the weekend. Kim sat court side Saturday night when the New Jersey Nets took on the Dallas Mavericks. When she wasn’t busy signaling ‘I Love U’ signs to Kris, she took some time to take some photos with Jersey Shore star Snooki, who was also present at the game.
Photos of the two ladies below. Kim tweeted after meeting the Snooks, “”Love u snookaroo! Hang out in Jerz soon! …So nice to see you guys tonight! Love you b*****s! Xoxo.” Snooki also tweeted later, @JonathanCheban @KimKardashian So nice to see you guys tonight! Love you bitches! Xoxo. Allrighty.

“Tune n tonite 2 c who gets the biggest Hater Award. Was so many it was hard 2 decide. help me pick the winner,” tweeted Cynthia Bailey yesterday.
“Right” was NeNe Leakes’s reply to her good friend Cynthia, who didn’t respond to her by the way. “In the fashion industry, they’re always looking for the next young model so that’s going to be tough for Cynthia because young ain’t on her side right now,” were Nene’s exact words about her good friend Cynthia following her runway walk. Dear Nene, me thinks Cynthia was referring to you as well, or at least she should have been.
Moving right along to last night’s episode of the Real Housewives of Atlanta, which wasn’t the finale as that airs next week.
The episode beings with the continuation of the tour bus ride from hell. Kim and Nene continue to argue as Nene also continues to make all kinds of threats. “I’ll toss you out the window,” threatens Nene as I wonder why the two Bravo housewives who claim to be victims of domestic violence, and advocate against it, aka Nene and Taylor Armstrong, are always the first ones to threaten violence. Funny how that works.
The tour bus finally touches base in Miami as the other ladies anxiously await their arrival. If only they knew that Hurricane Nene was heading their way. “You need to grow up and you need to know how to handle a conversation like an adult,” continues Nene as she yells at Kim back on the bus. “It’s so childish and immature,” adds the 42-year-old Nene. Oh the irony. I can assure you if you were to look into a dictionary at this very moment for the word irony hater, Nene’s photo will pop up!

During the fight Kyle referred to her sister Kim as “insane,” “sick,” a “liar,” “demented,” and lastly an “alcoholic.” At one point Kyle even got up from her seat as if to attack Kim, who hid behind costarAdrienne Maloof. During the ugly fight, Kim also accused her sister of stealing her house and called her “phony.”
Following the airing of the episode, Kyle is now speaking out on the events that transpired both in a statement to Bravo and in her Bravo blog.
“The events that transpired that evening were quite unfortunate and should never have occurred on or off camera,” said Kyle in a statement released to Bravo. “There are a lot of elements to the story that viewers didn’t see. This has been difficult for our entire family as we both said and did things that we regret. My sister and I love each other very much we want to move forward and put this behind us.”
Kyle also took to her Bravo blog to try to clear up some things. Excerpts from Kyle’s blog below –
“Throughout the season I have come across as angry toward my sister. At times, it seemed unwarranted. I know that. I know how bad it looked. The truth is, I was angry. There were problems brewing between my sister and me offcamera. I’m not good at hiding my feelings as well as others, so I brought my feelings in front of the cameras. Viewers only know what they see, and sometimes, they saw me reacting with force and emotion that didn’t seem to make sense.
First off, let me say, I love my sister so much. Sometimes, I wish I loved her a little less. You may be thinking, “You have a funny way of showing it.” And you’re not wrong. However, our arguments were never about what was happening at that moment. My mom used to say, “They’re crying about the apples, but it’s really the oranges,” and that’s exactly what was happening here. The tension between Kim and me was never about her not “having my back” in New York. There is so much more to it than that. I didn’t want to come out and say what it was that was really bothering me because this is a private family matter. It would have saved me a lot of criticism, believe me, but it’s not just my story to tell. It’s Kim’s story too.
After this horrible argument between Kim and I, we didn’t speak for a long time. My heartwas broken and I suffered an incredible amount of anxiety and panic attacks. Next to losing my mother, this was the most difficult time of my life. It is so difficult for me to even write about it now.”
Meanwhile, Kim has been completely silent since the episode aired. She has given no statements to the media and her twitter page hasn’t been updated since Jan. 18. We will be sure to let you know once Kim decides to break her silence. By the way, the above photo of Kim & Kyle was taken back in October, 2010.
Hmm, have a lot of thoughts on Kyle’s words but I will leave that to you all. I will state though that it’s interesting how certain things are now Kim’s story to tell after her ‘alcoholism’ was blurted out on the show.
The first part of the reunion airs this Thursday, Jan. 27 at 10/9c on Bravo.
