“I’m not dating yet. I’m still just taking time for me,” the former Bachelor star told PEOPLE at the Rock ‘n’ Roll Half Marathon in Chicago. “I’m definitely doing some ‘me time’ right now.”
And when asked about the current season of the Bachelorette featuring his ex Ali Fedotowsky, Jake had the following to say: “I feel like I know Ali [Fedotowsky] pretty well,” he said. “I think any decision she makes is going to be the right one for her. She could go either way.”
And despite has nasty split with Vienna, Jake has no regrets with doing the show. You grow up so much during that show,” he added. “You’re not the same person when you start that you are when you finish. It’s an incredible experience.”
After watching the drama that took place between these two, I only have three questions. Who is nuttier between the two? Who is the bigger drama queen? And did Danielle finally meet her match in Kim G?
The episode begins with the morally and financially bankrupt Giudices, who have now come up with another creative way to continue living beyond their means, even after filing bankruptcy. Joe and Teresa visit the Brownstone to plan out yet another party. This time around, it’s for baby Audriana‘s christening and Teresa declares she wants ice sculptures. Teresa then reveals that the cause of Dina not being around anymore is Danielle. Evidently their close friendship only extended to being in front of Bravo cameras.
Next up we see Danielle pull up to a hospital, and we soon find out this TMI hospital visit is for her 16-year-old daughter’s first visit to see a OB-GYN, and I find myself asking if it was really necessary for Danielle to bring the cameras around for something so private. I mean it’s bad enough Christine has Danielle for a mother, is it really necessary to have her OB-GYN appointments filmed? Are we about to see poor Christine’s pap smear? Are the other home viewers as uncomfortable for Christine as I am at this point? Thankfully, we find out this appointment was more of a talking one. Danielle decides she isn’t done embarrassing her daughter on national television and proceeds to ask her if she’s having sex or “being a good girl” rather. An embarrassed Christine refuses to answer, and we get a HPV after school special. In this scene we also find out born again virgin Danielle does not date, not surprising considering she’s too busy making sex tapes with randoms.
Christopher Manzo is playing some pool with best friend John G. who just happens to be Kim G’s son. Kim G. decides to randomly show up with some popcorn for the adult men, and immediately gives us this awkward scene when she tries to get Christoper to arrange a playdate between she and Caroline. “Umm… Why don’t we go with you,” is what Chris is able to muster up. Kim G. is game and ready to do whatever it takes to become a regular on the show Caroline Manzo’s new BFF!
It’s the day of the weddingquinceanera christening and we see Teresa getting her girls ready. “Mom, where’s my purse? Can I wear my silver Juicy Couture one?” asks diva in training Gia. Teresa shares that Joe’s a little grumpy this morning due to working long hours in the pizzeria, oops his father’s pizzeria that is of course. Me thinks Joe’s a little grumpy cause he had just gone bankrupt trying to make his wife happy, but that’s just me.
Miami is about to get even hotter! Following its most successful season ever, tonight marks the premiere of the all new 5th season of Oxygen’s Bad Girls Club.
Bad Girls Club Miami marks the first time in the show’s history that it is being taped in a new location other than Los Angeles. Below is part of Oxygen’s press release -
“This season, the new batch of seven self-proclaimed “Bad Girls” live together with similarly explosive personalities, resulting in constant clashing between housemates. Besides hitting the trendy South Beach clubs, these “Bad Girls” are ready to take it up a notch — with manipulative backstabbing friendships, in-house love triangles, exotic trips to the Caribbean, unexpected alliances and endless mind games.”
I also had the privilege of viewing the premiere episode in its entirety and I must add that it includes whole lot of insanity and bad behavior.
What can you expect in tonight’s premiere? Let’s just say the episode ends with a full blown fight between one of the bad girls(Morgan) and a few of her castmates. Morgan, who happens to be a Miami local seems to be channeling last season’s Natalie Nunn as she declares herself the prettiest girl in Miami, and deems most of her fellow house mates as being too unattractive to hang out with her.
Morgan’s castmates don’t take to well to her superior attitude of course and they decide to let if be known by moving all her belongings out of the house and locking her out during one of her nights out. Morgan returns home to find her belongings outside, and ALL HELL BREAKS LOOSE. What happens next? You will have to tune in tonight at at 9 PM ET/PT on Oxygen.
Below are the Photos and Bios of the newest bad girls! -
Morgan Osman, Miami Fl – Confidence is no issue for this Miami local. Morgan claims she is the prettiest girl in Miami and refuses to pay rent or bills, when she knows she can get away with whatever she wants. Before moving into the “Bad Girls” house, Morgan lived the high life with numerous celebrities. In Morgan’s world, life is all about being beautiful and being at the hottest clubs in South Beach.
Kristen Guinane, Boston MA – A self-proclaimed princess, Kristen grew up doing no wrong in her parents’ eyes. At the age of nine, Kristen entered the pageant circuit, fostering an intense competitive nature in her. This pampered, privileged blonde bombshell brings her taste for the high life to the “Bad Girls Club,” as well as her life-long aspiration to be a Playboy Playmate.

Roberto then got on one knee and proposed to an accepting Ali, which seemed like a traditional ending for the ABC hit show. The surprise of the night however came when Ali, 25, told finalist Chris Lambton, a 33-year-old contractor from Cape Cod, Mass., that she was in love with Roberto — just before the two were supposed to go on their final date, definitely a first in the show’s history.
“I’m in love with somebody else. I have to let you go here and not wait until tomorrow. This wasn’t an easy decision. It was really hard. I just didn’t want to put you through tomorrow because I know that’s going to be so hard,” said Ali to Chris.
Roberto, 26, had longed been the front runner of the show from the start, after receiving the first impression rose from Ali. Oddly enough, this is the first time in the show’s history that the person who received the first impression rose came out the winner.
“I love Roberto,” gushed Ali. “I love him. I’ve never ever in my whole life felt this good in a relationship.”
Ali and Roberto also appeared on the Jimmy Kimmel Live show Monday night, during which Ali revealed she and Roberto would like to walk down the aisle “in the spring” of next year.
Now that the show is over, the question on everyone’s minds is who will be the next Bachelor? It has been rumored that Ty Brown from this Bachelorette season was being considered, but according to the show insider, Reality Steve, ABC would like Chris Lambton for the upcoming season.
Reality Steve reported yesterday that Chris, 33, has been offered the next Bachelor spot and that he will likely accept. The official announcement will come from ABC any day now.

Despite her constant denials of having relationship problems, it seems there was trouble in paradise after all for Gloria Govan.
NecoleBitchie is reporting that the Basketball Wives‘ star and her fiance Matt Barnes have called of their wedding, well that is unless the two “kiss and make up before the upcoming wedding date,” according to the site.
Matt and Gloria, pictured above on June 26, were set to tie the knot on August 21 in Santa Barbara but text messages were sent to a few of the groomsmen over the weekend informing them that the wedding had been canceled. Matt’s only reply to inquiries wondering what could have gone wrong was “Please respect my privacy”.
This doesn’t really come as a big surprise. Since the couple’s appearance on VH1′s Basketball Wives, there have been numerous rumors and rumblings that Matt wasn’t being the most faithful fiance.
The NicoleBitchie site also reported last month that Gloria might be appearing on season 2 on the show despite speaking out against the show this year. Her rep confirmed to the site in July that she was gearing up for a second season.

Kim G. and Jacqueline may find common ground as Kim G. recounts the latest Danielle drama and insists that their friendship is over. Skeptical of her past two-faced behavior, Jacqueline is not quick to trust and even calls Kim G. out on her shady behavior.
Also this week, Dina Manzo makes a guest appearance as she’s named Teresa’s baby’s godmother. Will Dina’s brief return get her caught up in any Housewife drama? And finally, we get the big showdown between Danielle and Kim G. The new episode airs tonight at10/9c on Bravo.
In other Housewives news, Teresa Giudice appeared on The View talk show this morning and her appearance was nothing short of extremely humiliating as she was verbally bitchslapped by the show’s hosts.
Teresa, who seemed very excited to be going on the show according to her twitter, likely did not expect the intense interrogation she received. Right from the start, Teresa seemed tense and nervous, even stammering over her words. She was grilled by the ladies about her financial situation, and at one point during the show, host Joy Behar was just laughing at her, right in front of her.
Teresa’s appearance on the show was first preempted by the foreclosure argument she had with Danielle. The first question came from Elisabeth Hasselbeck who wanted to know how she went broke, since she is always shown spending frivolously on the show. Before Teresa could even finish stammering her words to answer Elisabeth’s question, Joy chimed in, “Is your husband a slumlord?”
And before Teresa could finish answering Joy’s slumlord question, guest host Bryant Gumbel brought up the accusations being made by Joe Giudice’s former business partner, who told PEOPLE magazine a while back that a bad economy only played a small role in the Giudices bankruptcy filing, saying living beyond their means played a big role.
After Teresa tried to put the bankruptcy blame on a bad economy and Joe’s businesses going bad, Bryant brought up a good point when he asked her if people not paying Joe rent could really be to blame for their $11 mil debt. Teresa then claimed their debt was not $11 mil and that those numbers were exaggerated by the media. Bryant asked her how much her debt was, “$10 million?” snarked Bryant to Teresa, who then replied that she did not know the exact amount.
Teresa claimed she was not aware of her huge debt because Joe kept it from her until it was absolutely necessary to tell her. I always live within my means. Always. The money was coming in from the apartment buildings so we were able to live the lifestyle that we did,” insisted Teresa. “How are you living within your means if you’re $11 mil in debt? I don’t get that,” were the next words out of Joy’s mouth.
Teresa was also asked about the foreclosure rumors, to which she said her home is not in foreclosure and has never been in foreclosure. Regarding the upcoming Aug 22 auction, she confirmed her lawyer has filed an objection. She was also asked if the ring she was wearing was real, to which she admitted it was “costume jewelry.”
When asked about the Dancing With The Starsrumors, Teresa said she could not comment on it. “You should go on Dancing With The Stars, and then have a yard sale!” exclaimed other guest host Mario Cantone. And yes folks, it was that kinda day for Teresa. I almost felt bad for her when it was all over. Almost.
Below is what Teresa tweeted after she finished taping The View -
“Whew! It’s over! I knew The View wasn’t going to be a lovefest, but you gotta take the tough questions sometimes…
Thank you all for your encouraging tweets. I’m fine. I’m a tough cookie. It takes more than an old comedian to bring me down. ;)”
In case you’re wondering, the “old comedian” she’s referring to is Joy Behar. The video of Teresa’s interview has yet to hit the net, but it will be posted here the minute it appears online.
Thanks to our reader bailey78. Part of Teresa’s interview is below -

This season finale of “The Bachelorette” is set to air tonight, in what ABC is touting as an ending that has never happened in the Bachelorette history.
Ali Fedotowskyis now left with her two finalists, Chris Lambton, a 33-year-old landscaper from Cape Cod, and Roberto Martinez, a 26-year-old insurance agent from Charleston, both of whom will be meeting her family in tonight’s episode. Ali will spend her final date with Roberto jet skiing, swimming and picnicking, while her date with Chris L. is described as emotional and taking a surprising turn.
And for the first time in the past few Bachelor/Bachelorette seasons, the finale results have not been leaked. Even Bachelor show insider RealitySteve.com had admitted he does not know how the show ends this season.
This has of course led to a ton of rumors and speculation about what Ali will do tonight. The most popular one is that Ali will pick no one, which has never happened in the Bachelorette history. The other speculation is that Ali will pick one of the guys, and then propose to the winner.
There are also conflicting media reports, which only leads to more confusion regarding Ali’s final choice. UsWeekly is reporting Ali is engaged to one of her finalists, and is planning her wedding while Star magazine is reporting this week that Ali was seen flirting with NFL Quarterback Matt Leinart, even giving him her phone number.
While we all continue to speculate on the ending, one rumor that has been debunked is the one about the newly single Jake Pavelka coming back next season as the show’s Bachelor. The show’s host Chris Harrisontells E! Online, “No. Never. [Laughs.] That will never happen. Not with me as a host anyway,” when asked about the possibility of Jake returning.
When it comes to tongiht’s ending, Chris says, “People will be surprised. Whether it’s good or not, Ali’s happy with it and she’s sticking by it. It’ll be interesting. I really just want to sit back and watch the fan reactions, what the comments are and how they feel it all played out.”
And as for Ali, well let’s just say she’s not giving anything away, only saying she is happy with her decision.
What is certain is that the finale airs tonight at 8 p.m. on ABC, immediately followed by “After the Final Rose.”

It seems Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt are finally learning the hard way just how many few seconds remain on their original 15 minutes of fame.
After it was reported months ago that the highly publicized split between the Hills‘ attentionwhoring couple was a publicity stunt, the Pratts decided to take things up a notch by having Heidi file for divorce on Friday. Only problem? Just an hour after their divorce announcement, Jersey Shore’sSnooki got arrested and stole away all their publicity and headline making thunder.
Now fast forward to today and RadarOnline is confirming that the divorce is indeed another publicity stunt, just like their separation. According to Radar, the two have been living together since their split announcement.
“Spencer thinks this is how he is going to get famous again, they have staged the entire thing separation/divorce thing,” said a source before adding that “Heidi and Spencer have been living together in a house in Malibu since the original break up.”
Reason #2 why the divorce filing is a publicity stunt? According to TMZ, a law in California requires couples filing for divorce to wait a minimum of 6 months before they can end their marriage, meaning these two famewhores will have reunited on their proposed reality show before the divorce can ever become final.
And what is Heidi up to nowadays? “Heidi never leaves the house. She has changed her phone number and her e-mail several times. She doesn’t even speak to [her sister] Holly or anyone in her family,” reveals the source.
