On the last episode of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, viewers saw costars Lisa Vanderpump and Adrienne Maloof bicker over which high end luxury hotel should have hosted the bachelorette party for Lisa’s daughter — a.k.a. Rich People Problems!

Adrienne particularly took offense to the fact that Lisa didn’t ask her if she would host Pandora Vanderpump’s bachelorette party at her Palms hotel in Vegas so that she can get free promotion for her business on national television! Adrienne decided to confront Lisa during her event, and Lisa did not back down, making it clear the owner of Planet Hollywood was a family friend and that the decision to have the bachelorette party there was her daughter’s.

In her latest Bravo blog, Lisa fires back at Adrienne, hinting that Adrienne’s only concern was promoting her own hotel. Lisa also feels the whole argument was ridic stating she doesn’t question Adrienne whenever she chooses to dine at other restaurants in Beverly Hills.

Lisa wrote: “Apparently [Adrienne] was miffed that Pandora had decided to hold her bachelorette party at our old family friend Robert Earl’s venue, Planet Hollywood . Robert loves her and had no intention of promoting the hotel. I mean, how dare my daughter choose what she wants? She should be supporting her mother’s neighbor’s business! I seriously couldn’t understand this. It was the first I knew of her being upset. Jason had had his bachelor party a couple of weeks before, hosted by our friend, and Pandora was going to do the same. It was all arranged. I wasn’t going and hadn’t been involved in the arrangements.”

Lisa continued, “Somehow, to cut a long story short, I was roped into this trip, and obviously, now you, the viewer, will get to witness it, so everything changes. What was to be Pandora’s trip became a major production, and I was suddenly in trouble for it. I resent the fact that suddenly I am to blame, it is a huge deal to entertain 14 people, and I certainly would never dream of asking anybody to do that. Robert wanted to comp the whole weekend as his gift to Pandora, Why do I feel I have to constantly justify mine and my daughter’s actions?”

To close out her blog, Lisa hinted that perhaps Adrienne was just trying to create drama for the camera. “When Adrienne and Paul are having dinner at a neighboring restaurant, it wouldn’t even enter my mind to question them! It seems as if some people are looking for a problem. . . So there we have it. Once again a pleasant evening was marred by a really petty matter. I am losing patience with this constant need for altercations when we all have busy lives,” blogged Lisa.

Pandora also took to Twitter to defend her mom. Pandora tweeted, “Hello?Do I have a voice? Jason and I planned our own bachelor/bachelorette parties, not @LisaVanderpump #givemeabreak #loveplanethollywood.” Pandora later added: “An old friend offered to throw it at his casino PH and I have known him since I was 9!”

Moving on to Taylor ArmstrongRadarOnline is now reporting she just signed a book deal — a memoir that will reportedly include details of her marital turmoil with deceased husband Russell Armstrong.

“Taylor’s deal is with Simon and Schuster and the book will be out in February 2012,” a source close to Taylor reveals. “It will be a memoir and the abuse she endured while married to Russell, as well as another abusive relationship she was in the past will all be detailed.”

The source adds, “Taylor is writing the book to put a face on women involved in domestic violence. She wants the public to know there are resources for battered women, and there is a way out.”

As the divorce-annulment drama between Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries heats up, Kris continues to fire back at his wife of 72-days!

A day after filing for annulment on the grounds of fraud, TMZ is now reporting Kris feels he was nothing but a pawn, simply used by Kim for her E! reality show.

Sources tell TMZ Kris feels “he was just slotted in the plot line of Kim Kardashian‘s latest headline and newest business venture.”

TMZ adds that Kris, 26, now believes Kim, 31, never intended to stay married to him and only needed a groom to boost ratings for her show — Kourtney and Kim Take New York. One source states: “Once they were finished taping, she just didn’t need a groom anymore.” Indeed, Kim filed for divorce not during taping of the show but immediately after filming ended.

Kris is reportedly outraged that some of the public believes he was in on the wedding scam. A friend of Kris states, “He would have never flown in his childhood pastor to marry them and involve his church.”

Kris also feels Kim’s own statement (the one she posted on her blog the day she filed for divorce) proves his point. Back on Oct. 31, Kim wrote: “I felt like I was on a fast roller coaster and couldn’t get off when now I know I probably should have. I got caught up in the hoopla and the filming of the TV show.”

And just moments ago, Kim fired back once again at Kris also via TMZ. Kim, err “sources” close to Kim rather tell TMZ Kris’s claims can’t be true because “she and her mom are marketing geniuses, so why would she set herself up to be skewered in the media by dumping her husband after only 72 days?” Folks we can’t make these things up, but my answer to Kimmie is that she and her mother foolishly underestimated the backlash they would receive.

Kim is also telling friends that Kris’ latest move is “pathetic,” adding, “Why fight over any of this?”

Perhaps a reason for Kris’ sudden urge to fight back is this week’s cover of Star magazine and other numerous negative stories the Kardashian camp continues to plant about him in the press… in hopes of making him a villain and Kim a victim.

On this week’s Star cover (posted below), sources close to Kim claim the marriage fell apart because Kris is gay and apparently refused to touch her after their honeymoon. Yes they went there. Even better, this comes just weeks after the same sources were claiming Kris cheated on Kim with other women. A rep for Kris, however, denies the tabloid rumor telling the NY Post that Star Magazine’s story is “completely false and ridiculous. He is not gay.”

It appears the Kardashians continue to remain desperate to paint Kim as a victim as pretty much all of their previous attempts have failed. This includes the premiere episode of KKTNY which actually backfired as it showed Kris as being in love with his wife, while Kim was rather short with him.

In fact, Kim’s actions on that episode is also causing some new drama. See in one of the scenes, Kris ends up ruining Kim’s pedicure while roughhousing with her and a very annoyed Kim punches him in retaliation. Dr. Drew Pinsky who saw the footage stated that he considered Kim’s actions to be domestic abuse. Wowzers.

“What you are seeing there is domestic violence,” said Dr. Drew as he played the clip for his “Lifechangers” audience to see. “A lot of people watching this may not understand this, and I get that. It looks playful. What’s the big deal? It is a massive deal and it’s important.”

Dr. Drew added that his main concern was the message Kim’s actions are sending to viewers. “It’s important for everyone else,” he said. “For Kris and Kim, they’re separating. That’s over with. This doesn’t need to be reported or anything, but anybody listening at home and viewing this has to understand the spectrum of domestic violence, and this is incontrovertible evidence of someone engaged in a domestic violence relationship.”

He also added that Kim’s actions shouldn’t be excused due to her small size compared to NBA player Kris. “It’s illegal, and it goes to a bad place,” he stressed. “It progresses. It starts and goes — it doesn’t stay right there. The size, gender does not matter. It goes to a horrible, horrible place.”

Interesting. Did Kim cross the line with her punch? We’ll let you be the judge. The clip of the punch is below.

The infamous Anna Benson continues to live up to her infamy according to a shocking new report!

TMZ reports Anna, star of VH1’s Baseball Wives, actually threatened her costars with… wait for it… a 12-inch dildo.

Sources tell TMZ that during a recent filming, Anna — wife of former Mets pitcher Kris Benson — got into an argument with Cheri Knoblauch. Okay, not so strange. Things however took a turn for the cray-cray when Anna pulled out a stun gun and set it on a table in a threatening manner.

ANNA BENSON CLAIMS BASEBALL WIVES ARE CLASSIER THAN BASKETBALL WIVES!

Okay, still sorta normal. Well, Anna then proceeded to get more creative when she yanked out a 12-inch dildo from her purse and started swinging it at others! So many questions, so little time.

TMZ adds that some of the show’s staffers are now threatening to quit over Anna’s insane behavior! The show’s executives have been forced to step in to try to contain Anna. Wonder if Anna has met Jackie Christie yet? Both ladies seem to have a lot in common!

Speaking of Baseball Wives, the series premiered last night on VH1. Wasn’t all too impressed as something about it was giving me the Real Housewives of Miami. Perhaps it will get better as the season moves along.

Divorce? What divorce? NBA player Kris Humphries would rather pretend his marriage to wife of 72 days, Kim Kardashian, never happened.

Today, Kris, 26, finally responded to Kim’s divorce filing by seeking an annulment from her. Kris wants to erase his quickie marriage on the grounds that Kim defrauded him into marrying her.

Sources close to Kris tell TMZ that Kris was not in on the alleged fraud, a.k.a. he did not stage the marriage for Kim’s reality show. The insiders reveal while Kris wanted and thought he had a genuine marriage, Kim was never really on board.

TMZ adds that this divorce is quickly getting nasty because Kris also wants Kim to pay his attorney’s fees.

Kim is, however, not wasting any time firing back at Kris, with Kim herself “sources” close to her insisting to TMZ that she really loved Kris and the marriage was legit, despite falling apart in just 72 days.

Kim is telling others she originally wanted an annulment and filed for divorce after being told it was her only legal option. Kim is also claiming Kris and her discussed annulling the marriage before she filed for divorce, but were advised there was no legitimate grounds for an annulment.

KOURTNEY KARDASHIAN ANNOUNCES SHE IS 9 WEEKS PREGNANT WITH BABY NO. 2!

TMZ states that under California law, annulments are only granted with proof of impotency, incest, bigamy, unsound mind, force or fraud. Kris’s papers state that in the case he’s denied an annulment, he wants a legal separation – and not a divorce. However, some legal experts are stating it will be very difficult for Kris to prove fraud in court.

I have to wonder if Kris’ annulment filing had anything to do with the premiere of Kourtney and Kim Take New York. In a review I wrote before the show aired, I stated that Kris seemed to truly love his wife, appearing like lovesick puppy, while Kimmie seemed pretty much over the marriage. She was quick to get angry with him and seemed more concerned with creating good TV drama by agreeing to move in with her sister Kourtney and her family.

Meanwhile, sources close to Kris tell the HollywoodLife blog that a reconciliation with Kim is completely out of the question. “Kris is no longer heartbroken and he’s ready to move on,” reveals the source. “His main focus is basketball and he has been hustling for contract opportunities.”

Kris is now reportedly “trying to show teams he’s no longer associated with the Kardashians, so they aren’t influenced negatively by his outside issues.”

And finally, just moments ago, E! tweeted a photo of Khloe Kardashian and her husband Lamar Odom on a set filming promos for the second season of their show — Khloe & Lamar.

So folks, it appears immediately following this season of Kourtney and Kim Take New York, we will get season two of Khloe and Lamar, and then the 125th season of Keeping Up With The Kardashians which is currently filming at the moment. Le sigh. These people are never going away are they? The behind-the-scenes photo is below.

Like it or not, there will be a second season of the Real Housewives of Miami!

Even better, Adriana De Moura confirms season two is set to begin filming in a few weeks, but not without a big shake up!

In an interview with the Miami Herald, Adriana reveals season 1 cast members Larsa Pippen and Cristy Rice will NOT be returning. “Larsa and Cristy are out,’’ states Adriana. “Producers didn’t want this to go in a Basketball Wives direction. We’ll portray Miami the way it should be portrayed.’’ Ouch!

So who will be the new housewives taking their places? Adriana has no idea though she assures us almost everyone in Miami is vying to be on the show.

“It’s so funny, when we aired, everyone said, ‘Oh that show is so bad. I don’t even watch it,’ she says. “But when they were casting, all of a sudden — I’m not going to mention names — but now half of Miami wants to be in it.’’

MARYSOL PATTON EXPLAINS WHY THE FIRST SEASON FLOPPED!

Adriana once again defends her show and the lackluster first season. She explains the first season didn’t work because Bravo never meant for the series to become a Real Housewives franchise. Indeed, the show was originally intended to be a Miami Social knockoff, but became a Housewives franchise during the editing process.

“That’s why we had shorter episodes and all that foolishness,’’ says the optimistic Adriana. “Now we’re hoping to beat Beverly Hills!’’ Umm let’s not get ahead of ourselves now Adrie!

With filming set to begin in about six weeks, Adriana states she alongside Marysol Patton (Yay for Mama Elsa!), Alexia Echevarria and Lea Black will be returning.

Larsa’s departure is not much of a surprise as she reportedly moved back to Chicago with her husband Scottie Pippen and their family earlier this year.

Let’s go ahead and add another minute to the Kardashians’ original fifteen as Kourtney Kardashian is now pregnant with baby No. 2!

Kourtney confirmed the news to UsWeekly that she is indeed expecting a second child with baby daddy Scott Disick. But that’s not the shocker folks! What is it you ask? Well, Kourt is announcing the news to the world while just 9 weeks along!

“Now I’m nine weeks along,” Kourtney tells UsWeekly. “You’re supposed to wait 12 weeks to tell people, but I feel confident.” Well feeling confident and also announcing the news to deflect from her little sister, Kimmie Kardashian’s divorce backlash! Those crafty Kardashians! Always so transparent.

Kourtney, 32, reveals she took the pregnancy test about five weeks ago and woke up Scott, 28 (apparently is not a morning person), around 7.a.m. to tell him the good news.

KRIS JENNER REVEALS DETAILS OF STEAMY AFFAIR!

So was baby #2 planned for the unwed couple? Or was the news a surprise? “It wasn’t like we weren’t trying,” says Scott. “We kind of just said, ‘If it’s meant to be, it’ll be.'” Kourtney and Scott’s son Mason turns 2 in December.

This pregnancy news is even more surprising as the couple can be seen on the second of Kourtney and Kim Takes New York supposedly having major problems in their relationship. The series, which was just taped in September and October, depicts the two sleeping in separate bedrooms and being at each other’s throats.

A source, however, tells the HollywoodLife blog the obvious — which is that their storyline is all scripted for the show. “It’s funny because Scott and Kourtney’s relationship is actually pretty strong,” a source close to the couple reveals. “As the new season continues, they will have their moments ‘for the cameras,’ but it’s a lot of smoke and mirrors.” Oh you don’t say! Makes you wonder how much of the upcoming Kris Humphries is a total jerk storyline was also scripted for the cameras.

In the meantime, we can all await the new E! special Kourtney’s Fairytale Wedding Delivery any minute now! You know it’s coming!

Bad news for non-Kardashian fans that signed their boycott petition as the ratings for the Kourtney and Kim Take New York season 2 premiere are out and higher than ever!

According to a press release by E!, the Sunday night premiere brought in a staggering 3.2 million total viewers, a 6% increase from the 3 million viewers who saw the first season premiere back in January 2011.

In fact, two of those viewers included Kim Kardashian, who tweeted her excitement in watching her marriage fall apart on Sunday night, as well as husband of 72 days Kris Humphries who reportedly watched the show in “utter terror.”

RadarOnline reports Kris watched in “utter horror, because it’s just not a true depiction about what was actually going on between Kim and Kris.” An insider close to the situation adds: “Kris did jokingly say that Kim ate too much wedding cake, but what viewers didn’t see was Kim nagging Kris about working.”

When it comes to Kris’ decision to leave Kim in NY at the end of the episode to go back to train in Minnesota, the insider states it wasn’t all Kris’ idea. “There was nothing he could do about the NBA lockout, he was working out, and getting ready for the upcoming season, and he is a free agent. It was actually Kim’s idea that Kris go back to Minnesota to train and give them some distance.”

The source also points out the obvious to Radar Online, which is that producers of the show set up situations with intentions to push Kris’ buttons. “Kris wasn’t getting any sleep at all with Mason’s playroom literally set up outside their bedroom door. It made no sense for Mason’s play area to be on the second floor of the suite Kim, Kris, Scott and Kourtney were staying in. Scott and Kourtney were staying downstairs, and Scott felt that the producers of the show were just trying to provoke him into reactions.”

Kris will reportedly be ‘relieved” once the show is over and his divorce is finalized.

In other news, the Kardashians grace the latest cover of Glamour magazine (more photos from their shoot below) and in a sneak peak of their interview — completed after Kim filed for divorce — Kim gives us her sob story of no longer believing in a fairytale.

“I think I’ll always be a hopeless romantic,” first states Kim before going on to add: “It means that I believe in love and the dream of having a perfect relationship, but my idea of it has changed. I think I need to not live in a fairy tale like that. I think I maybe need to just snap out of it and be a little more realistic.”

Kimmie Kakes doesn’t end there going on to state that she now believes she needs to be a bit “more realistic” about “the fact that what I want isn’t possible.”

Kim expands in the interview with her sisters: “I don’t know. I always wanted what Mom and Dad had. And at first I was like, I want six kids. Then I went down to four, then I was down to three… and now I’m like, maybe I won’t have any. Maybe I’ll just be a good aunt.”

Khloe Kardashian, apparently still has functioning brain cells, and promptly reminds her big sis that “what Mom and Dad had” ended in divorce. Khloe states: “ But Mom and Dad got a divorce, and she met Bruce. And you were a child; you don’t know what Mom and Dad had. As an outsider looking in, it probably looked like paradise.”

Aww poor Kimmie Kakes. How long until she’s in her next fairytale relationship? Plus are we really suppose to believe she only married for love and not for, you know, $17 million and attention???

And when it comes to the high ratings of Sunday’s premiere, I can’t say I’m surprised as I predicted as much. Quite frankly everyone loves a train-wreck and nothing screams train-wreck like watching a marriage that only lasted 72 days fall apart on TV! However, I still strongly believe that the Kardashians are done. They’ll never be able to top this train-wreck and the public is still sick of them. The family is currently filming the next season of Keeping Up With The Kardashians and I strongly believe those ratings will take a hit.

For the first time ever, Bravo will host a Millionaire Matchmaker reunion special!

The network promises past clients (from all five seasons) will return to dish on relationships and someone will have a special surprise. The reunion will be a two part special with part I airing tonight at 9:00 p.m., ET/PT and part II airing next Tuesday, December 6th At 9 pm ET/PT.

The press release states “Andy Cohen sits down with Patti for the first-ever reunion special. Visited by some of Patti’s most memorable clients, including Hello Kitty fanatic Robin Kassner, who offered to buy her date a Maserati; Stacy Kessler, who Patti accused of having a mid-life crisis; Zagros Bigvand, who didn’t follow Patti’s rule of “no sex before monogamy;” retired NFL star turned ESPN-commentator Marcellus Wiley, “Million Dollar Listing” star Madison Hildebrand, and more.”

A bit surprising because ratings for the show have taken a dip this year, but by having on the craziest guests from all five seasons, it will definitely make for a must-see reunion!

The reunion part I airs tonight (9/8c). A preview clip featuring the infamous Shauna Raisch is below!
