Could baby #2 be on the way for Bethenny Frankel?

That answer is a very strong maybe! The Bethenny Ever After star was photographed above this week on Tuesday as she went for a stroll with daughter Bryn and husband Jason Hoppy in NYC.

It is however the appearance of what looks to be a baby bump that is catching the eyes of some, including us. The very skinny Bethenny, 40, appears to have some extra curves around the tummy area.

If she is pregnant, this would not come as a surprise as she has been very vocal about her desire to have a second baby. Earlier this year, she revealed that if she were to have a second child, it would be sooner than later due to her age. “I would love to have a second child, and it’s not something I have time to wait for,” she told Redbook magazine in their January issue. “You really experience your biological clock if you’re my age.”

“We throw caution to the wind and use the withdrawal method now,” added Bethenny. “If we got pregnant again, we’d be happy.”

So is she or isn’t she? Only time will tell. In the mean time, we’ll let you be the judge with more photos below of Bethenny with Bryn and Jason!

Mob Wives Cast - Karen Gravano, Drita D’avanzo, Renee Graziano, and Carla Facciolo

Good news fans of Mob Wives! The VH1 network has officially picked up the show for a second season.

This news comes as no surprise as the show has been doing very well in ratings, averaging over 1.3 million viewers per episode. All four women will be back for season two.

In addition to the season 2 news, the network also announced a “Mob Wives” reunion special is set to air July 10. Something tells us there will be plenty of security on the set!

And if you thought the last ‘dinner from hell’ episode of the show was dramatic, you ain’t seen nothing yet!

According to a new report by the NY Post, there is still at least one more fight coming our way this season. Castmates and former friends Karen Gravano and Drita D’avanzo reportedly got into a nasty physical fight during the season finale taping at the Rare View bar atop the Shelburne Hotel in New York. In fact things got so crazy, that it left one castmate bloody.

Once Karen and Drita got physical, security is said to have stepped in and separated the two, who were taken in different elevators. However, the fight spilled into the lobby, and security ended up throwing them out of the hotel according to sources.

Another cast member Renee Graziano ended up bleeding in the scuffle after she cut her leg on a bench.

In the mean time, it seems VH1 has yet to decide on whether or not they will air the fight. A VH1 rep stated, “At this time, we are concerned about the well-being of our cast. The network has yet to determine whether we will air this footage.” VH1 has standards?

While the world continues to wonder what happened to Jake Pavelka’s pilot license or that whole not being a famewhore thingy, he is set to star in yet another upcoming reality show!

The former Bachelor star, who just finished filming a reality show for VH1 titled ‘Famous Food,’ will appear on the upcoming season of ABC’s Bachelor spinoff the Bachelor Pad! But it gets even better as his ex-fiance, Vienna Girardi, will be joining him on the show.

While ABC has yet to officially announce the cast, RadarOnline broke the news this week. Jake and Vienna had a very nasty and public split last year in June during which Vienna sold her story to a tabloid, insinuating Jake might be gay revealing she had been in a sexless and emotionally abusive relationship with Jake.

Joining Jake and Vienna in the competition to win the $250,000 prize will be past controversial contestant Rozlyn Papa, plus Holly Durst and Michael Stagliano (the two recently broke of their engagement).

Other cast members include guys: Graham Bunn, Tanner Pope, Kirk DeWindt, Stu Lopoten and David Vargas. And girls: Erica Rose, Melissa Shrieber, Asheigh Hunt, Madison Garton, Michelle Money and Jackie Gordon.

Real Housewives of Orange County star Alexis Bellino is denying those pesky rumors that she’s had a lot of plastic surgery, while also admitting to the work she has had done.

In an interview with Star magazine, Alexis, 34, insists she’s not a complete fake. “People think I have had all this work done, but I — honest to God — have only had breast implants… Botox and my lips injected,” she tells Star.

Alexis’s plastic surgeon Dr. Michael W. Niccole also confirms that his client is telling the truth. “She consulted with four other plastic surgeons before she came to me,” the Newport Beach, Calif.-based doctor reveals . “We sat down several times before we did her surgery because I knew that when you get someone who is an A-type personality perfectionist, you have to be very cautious.”

Alexis adds that making others believe she hasn’t had more surgery hasn’t been easy. “It is fascinating to me that everybody says they’re so sure that I’ve had a nose job or cheek implants or whatever,” says Alexis. “People just like to talk, but I’m OK with it.”

Allrighty. Meanwhile, Alexis took to her Bravo blog this week to call out her costar/former BFF Peggy Tanous, who casually dated her husband Jim Bellino 15 years ago, (Alexis reportedly was not aware of this fact until much later) and her husband Micah Tanous for talking smack about her and Jim on the most recent episode. Pots Micah and Peggy decided to trash the Bellinos, criticizing them for living beyond their means. And as we all know now, the Tanouses are currently in foreclosure. In fact, in looking at the dates, the Tanouses were defaulting on their home loan the same time Bravo was filming the current season. In her blog, Alexis makes it clear that she is now done with Peggy. Below is an excerpt –

“Micah says he doesn’t understand why I would have an assistant. Micah would never understand why I have an assistant, because he is never be as busy as I am. Micah claims he hates it when:

“Everybody’s trying to be something they are not.”
“Everybody’s caught up.”
“Everybody’s trying to keep up with the Jones’. Live within your means.”

Umm wait, this sounds just like Micah… Micah is projecting all of those things onto other people, but in all actuality that is how he acts. Micah is preaching such an introspective message here. Jim and I have many good investments, and we had one bad investment, our home. We sold our home and are moving on. We also just purchased a new company, a franchise in all of southern California. I will be disclosing that soon, and it’s super exciting! Why my finances are such a topic of discussion is beyond me, but as you can see, Jim and I are doing fine financially. It is so unbelievable to me that Peggy and Micah are so harsh and mean to Jim and I. At this point, I have to just let it go. I honestly don’t have the time or energy to discuss every single horrible thing they say. I’m moving on, and I know the truth will be discovered…”

It is just me or does Alexis look exactly like Peggy in the pic above?

And finally, Simon Barney, soon to be ex-husband of Tamra Barney, posted two new photos on his facebook this week of him and his girlfriend including one with Jeana Keough. Those pics are below!

More drama for the Jersey Shore cast.

The same night Ronnie and Sammi were photographed holdings hands in the streets of Florence, Italy, before getting into a reported fight inside of a club later that night, Ronnie and The Situation also got into a fight, except it was a violent fist fight!

The above photos were taken yesterday (the day after the fight) as both Ronnie and The Situation returned back home. The Sitch returned home after a visit to the hospital, while Ronnie can be seen applying bandages to his fist.

In the pic above, The Sitch can be seen sporting cuts and in another photo by a different photo agency, he can be seen sporting a shiner courtesy of Ronnie. As for Ronnie’s injuries, his fist suffered some cuts and bruises.

According to TMZ, the fight took place Monday night, presumably inside the home the roomates share. While full details about the fight have yet to come out, what is certain is that sources tell TMZ it all began with a blowout between Ronnie and Sammi… of course.

And it seems the roomates are all Team Ronnie as Ronnie has since been photographed with most of them out and about since the incident while The Situation has yet to be seen in public since the above picture was taken.

A close up of Ronnie’s fist is below. You know what they say, you can take the kids out of the Jersey Shore but…

TELL US: THE SITUATION’S ASS KICKING – HE HAD IT COMING? DO YOU FEEL BAD FOR HIM?

UPDATE – TMZ is reporting that Ronnie and The Situation have buried the hatchet and are back to being friends again. The two reportedly had a long talk following their fight.

As for what caused the fight, sources say after a heated argument with Sammi on Monday night, Ronnie returned home and “turned his anger towards Mike.” He started talking smack about The Sitch’s family causing Mike to snap and hence the fight. The two fought briefly before it was “quickly broken up.” Ronnie then decided to blow off some steam by punching a wall, which tore up his knuckles.

After falling short of winning the Superbowl earlier this year, Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Hines Ward was crowned the new Dancing With The Stars champ!

Going into the final results show last night, Hines was tied with Disney starlet Chelsea Kane for the top spot. He also faced competition from actress Kirstie Alley, who despite being a few points behind, was a fan favorite.

Not so surprisingly, coming in third place was Chelsea, 22, and her partner Mark Ballas. This left Hines, 35, and Kirstie, 60, to battle it out for the dreadful mirror ball trophy!

Ultimately, Hines was crowned the winner of DWTS season 12 and he made certain to thank his partner Kym Johnson. “I started this competition, I never thought I’d be in the finals, but I owe it all to Kym,” Hines said. “She’s an amazing teacher. I want to thank the judges for giving us their constructive criticism to help me get better each week. But also I want to thank all the fans.”

Runner-up Kirstie also thanked her partner/hotness Maksim Chmerkovskiy for helping her through the season. “It’s the most extraordinary adventure I’ve ever been on in my life,” said Kirstie, “and I want to thank…I love Maks.”

The three finalists all appeared on Good Morning America this morning. Hines also becomes the second NFL player in the history of DWTS to take the title. The only other player to accomplish the feat was Emmitt Smith in season three.

“Kris really didn’t want a big celebration, but he had jokingly told my mom he’d be fine if there were mini-horses there,” says Kim with a laugh. “Later that night at the party, my mom brought out two mini-horses, covered in glitter, for us! It was hysterical!”

Another day, another arrest involving the ever so classy Teen Mom couple Amber Portwood and Gary Shirley.

TMZ is reporting that Gary, 23, was arrested yesterday in Indiana for driving on a suspended license. He was arrested at 1:34 AM for “driving while suspended” — a Class A misdemeanor — and taken to jail. He was held on a $3,000 bond and has since been released.

But get this, Amber was somehow involved in the arrest. See the arresting officer revealed in a police report that he only approached the vehicle after hearing Gary and his baby mama Amber screaming at each other inside a car.

The concerned officer approached the vehicle and says Gary introduced himself and Amber as the couple from “Teen Mom.” Yes he did. The officer then asked for some ID and after running a check on Gary’s license — it came back suspended, so he ordered Gary out of the car.

Oh but it gets worse better. The cop reveals in the police report, “I placed Mr. Shirley in two sets of handcuffs due to his size.” Ouch.

Gary’s lawyer Jeff Lockwood tells TMZ he is not concerned about his client getting a jail sentence since this is “a traffic violation and Gary doesn’t have a previous criminal history.” Gary’s mugshot is below –
