The reason? Soccer star Hope is reportedly getting sick of Maks’ constant verbal abuse. This comes on the heels of Maskim’s recent outburst on the show.
“Hope has had it with Maks,” reveals an insider. “He’s such a jerk and constantly makes obnoxious comments to her like, ‘I’m not here to be your friend.’ It brings her down, and everyone can see it.”
The mag adds that Hope, 30, isn’t alone in her negative opinion of Maksim, 31. The insider claims no one on the show can stand him.
“He is by far the most hated person on the set,” the insider says. “No one wants to work with him, especially since he got his brother Valentin, a spot on the show. He thinks he has all this fame and power now.”
Another DWTS source agrees, adding: “Maks is so arrogant. Hope needs someone who encourages her and makes her feel like she can do it — but Maks does just the opposite.”
Interesting article as the two were photographed looking rather chummy just a week ago. In other Maks news, he tweeted that he is suffering from a broken toe. Maks tweeted on Friday: “One thing that could make this Halloween weekend better—-NOT having a broken toe! Got @TeddyV & @BigMervLA helping out!”
A new episode of DWTS airs tonight on ABC at 8/7c. It will be interesting to see if Maks’ toe injury hinders him in any way.

TELL US – THOUGHTS ON THE STAR MAGAZINE REPORT? DO YOU BELIEVE IT? IS MAKS TOO HARD ON HOPE?
UPDATE – Hope is denying the Star magazine report, stating it’s nothing but love with Maks! Hope tweeted: “My eyes have been opened!I’m not living in the real world!Hollywood gossip is truly gossip!Star magazine where do u get your sources!So sad.”
She later added, “Hows this 4 a source!Hell,ill even attach my name 2 it!”I GOT NOTHING BUT MAD LOVE & MAD RESPECT 4 MY PARTNER @maksimC!” Go ahead,quote it!”
Tonight marks the ending of Bad Girls Club New Orleans and in usual BGC fashion, the ladies are going out with a bang!
Things reach a boiling point when Nastasia Townsend finally decides to get some revenge against Shelly Hickman for destroying her very special/custom made contact lenses!
On tonight’s dramatic finale: The girls arrive home from the club, and Nastasia heads upstairs to prepare for a fight, warning Judi to protect her stuff. Nastasia approaches Shelly and Angelic and Angelic asks Nastasia why she has sneakers on. Nastasia asks both of them who messed with her contacts but they deny their involvement again. Nastasia gives an ultimatum—either defend yourself in the next five seconds or take an ass whooping. BAM! Nastasia throws a drink in Shelly’s face and starts punching.
A video preview is below! The finale episode airs on Oxygen at 9/8c.
Moving on to this season of BGC, which let’s face it wasn’t the best, but it was still entertaining nonetheless. Early on, Stasi was my favorite but in the end, she became a bully. While I can understand her need in wanting to get out the ever annoying Tasha, I wasn’t a fan of the way she turned on Judi, who is pretty much equivalent to a harmless puppy. It just seemed like she was picking on someone much much weaker when she decided to boot Judi, who considered her a sister, out the house.
Shelly was not likable and was quite weak as she always needed backup and pretty much spent the entire season picking on Judi. Priscilla was okay, while newbie Cheyenne was a non factor this season. Angelic was tolerable, and I would have to say Tiara was without a doubt my favorite this season. When you think about it, she did not change in the house and stayed true to her character the entire season. Not only was she funny, but I loved the way she stood up for Judi towards the end, realizing the others — Stasi included — were indeed picking on her. Tiara also held her own the entire season without resorting to bully tactics.
Weeks after the Keeping Up With The Kardashians star wed NBA player Kris Humphries, the tabloids started reporting the couple was having marital issues. At first it all seemed like rumors, but fast forward to today and more reputable media outlets such as UsWeekly and PEOPLE are confirming the two are indeed having a hard time in newlywedville.
Perhaps in an effort to quiet down the rumors, Kim admitted the following to PEOPLE magazine about her marriage: “It’s not ideal because you’re newlyweds and you want privacy.” Privacy? Really Kimmie? Two words that should never be uttered in the same sentence? Kim Kardashian and privacy! After all this is the same person who invited the paparazzi on her honeymoon and sold the photos for a reported $200,000!
A source tells PEOPLE of the couple: “They’ve been a bit distant lately. But they’re figuring it all out.” Distant after 2 months? Yikes!
Kim’s pimp err mom Kris Jenneralso chimed in stating now that filming has ended on the upcoming Kourtney & Kim Take New York season 2, it’s back to L.A. for the newlyweds. “They’re going two separate directions [with work],” says pimpmomager Kris. “They’ll figure it out as soon as they get back.”
Kimmie also graces the latest issue of UsWeekly magazine which sheds some more light on exactly what problems the two are having. The cover reads, “As Kim worries she made the mistake of her life, can she save her marriage?”
The mag reports that two months after the couple’s televised $10 million nuptials, Kim and Kris have already reached a breaking point in their marriage. “Kim and Kris are not getting along at all,” says a source. “Kris is not drinking the Kardashian Kool-Aid, and it’s causing major problems.”
Kris’ biggest fault? His perceived laziness which is a cardinal sin in the relentlessly ambitious famewhoring Kardashianland. With the NBA lockout leaving him jobless for the time being, Kris, 26, has reportedly been partying while Kim juggles multiple projects and foots the bill for his new A-list lifestyle.
A family friend reveals that just days before Kim celebrated her 31st birthday in Las Vegas, the two “had it out.” A family friend reveals: “She told him he needs to do something productive. The greed work ethic in that family really means something. He needs to get off his ass, like, yesterday.”
Even worse, Kim is now beginning to question whether she should have married a pro athlete who’s 5 years younger someone she had only known nine months. “On some levels,” says the friend, “she feels like she made a mistake.” Wowzers.
UsWeekly adds that the couple got into a big blowout on October 16 as Kim exploded when she returned to the Gansevoort Park hotel, their temporary home in New York City, from a promotional trip to the United Arab Emirates (she reportedly received $1 mil for that trip). After four days apart, Kim was hoping to find an eager husband waiting to spend quality time with her, but instead Kris was nowhere to be found.
“He was with friends at a bar watching football,” says the family friend. “She was not psyched.” Adding to the couple’s issues is the fact that Kris has not been hitting the gym or working on his basketball skills during the NBA lockout. “Kris was supposed to be training when Kim was away.” And Kim was “extremely upset” to find out he hadn’t been doing that. “She told him this sh*t needs to stop,” says the friend. “He literally has nothing to do right now. He and his friends have milked the whole Kardashian thing: It was bottle service and table and free everything everywhere he went.”
With all their marital issues laid out (there’s even more mentioned in the latest issue of UsWeekly magazine out on newstands now), the mag states having a baby is indefinitely on hold for the couple. In fact, Kim has done a 180 on having a baby. If you recall, she stated back in June that she wanted to be pregnant “by the end of the year.” Fast forward to today and she is singing a much different tune.
“We’re going to wait,” she recently said. “We want to spend some time together and enjoy each other. Give me, like, a year. Then we’ll talk babies!”
Insiders however aren’t so sure the couple will make it a year. “I’m not saying they’re getting divorced tomorrow,” says a family friend. “But it’s much harder than she anticipated.”
Sources tell the mag that moving to L.A. is going to prove to be a “real test” for the couple.
Must say I’m absolutely not shocked these two are already having major issues just 2 months into their marriage. The #1 mistake Kimmie made was to start filming the Kourtney & Kim Take NY reality show immediately after their wedding. These two literally got married in front of cameras, went on their honeymoon — with paparazzi in tow, and then went to NYC to start filming a reality show. Where’s the alone time? To, you know, get to know each other as husband and wife? As much of a famewhore Kimmie is, even I was shocked she sold her honeymoon pictures. On top of having E! cameras and paparazzi always in their faces, they are spending tons of time apart due to Kim’s constant traveling for work and promotional appearances.
I however believe the biggest mistake was filming a reality show right away. Khloe Kardashian was smart about her marriage and waited over a year after marrying Lamar before filming their own spin-off. Why didn’t Kim do the same? Especially with someone like Kris who is so far removed from the Hollywood lifestyle. Plus Kris is only 26 years old while Kimmie is 31. A 26-year-old professional athlete who now has fame and access to more women than ever? If you guessed a recipe for disaster, you guessed right! So we have to ask again…

TELL US – SHOCKED THAT THIS IS GOING SO BAD SO FAST? DO YOU THINK THEY’LL MAKE IT A YEAR? FEEL BAD FOR KIM?
The latest is an In Touch Weekly cover story about the Real Housewives of New Jerseystars which states Joe was spotted with a “hot blonde” just weeks ago at a hotel!
According to In Touch, Joe was seen with a group of females at Harrah’s Resort in Atlantic City, N.J. — and Teresa was nowhere to be found. “He was drinking at the Waterfront Tower with four women,” including an attractive blonde, an onlooker says of the wild September night.
“At 2 a.m., I saw Joe leave a hotel room carrying his duffel bag. He looked like he didn’t want to be noticed!” An insider close to Joe however denies he cheated: “About 30 women approached Joe that night, and he never went to a hotel room.” Really? 30 women???
Even worse, the mag states Teresa was made aware of the incident from a friend. She reportedly confronted Joe at home one day and he denied everything. Teresa is however said to be growing more weary of Joe’s extracurriculars especially after he was “caught” on a dinner date with Davana Medina on September 27.
While Davana maintains it was just a friendly dinner, a pal tells In Touch her boyfriend dumped her after the picture of her and Joe surfaced. Wowzers.
In other Teresa news, our RHONJ insider is telling us that Teresa and Joe continue to make enemies and even states that Teresa, who always brags about not having a nanny, is not the hands on mom she badly wants the world to believe she is.
First our source informs us the Giudices continue to alienate the people in their lives. “Not only are the cast members of the show not her friends anymore, her other real life “friends” have jumped ship,” the source tells Reality Tea. “They said Teresa uses them for rides for her kids. Her one friend’s husband has a driver and Joe asks to use him all the time. The same couple has a lot of money and Joe has asked the husband to put businesses in his name.”
If you recall, Joe’s driving license is currently suspended. In fact, a shocking report came out last year stating Joe’s license has been suspended a total of 9.4 years out of the last 20 years.
Our source adds that while Teresa likes to point the finger at people who have help (she has put sister-in-law Melissa Gorga on blast in the past for having a nanny), Teresa actually has A LOT of help with her kids these days all due to her pursuit of fame.
“I know Teresa’s babysitter well. She watches all four children ALL the time. She drives them everywhere, takes them to birthday parties, and just about everything else,” says our insider. “Teresa is very uninvolved in her children’s lives. She has been for a while. Her main focus is how to build her empire so she can remain “on top.”
The source adds, “Teresa doesn’t value people or friendships. Teresa values possessions, money, status, and looks. She is a narcissist.”
Our source even supplied us with a picture of Joe and Teresa with their babysitter/nanny Shauna. That picture is below.
In the meantime, Teresa is speaking out, denying she is behind the latest In Touch Weekly cover story which alleges Jacqueline Laurita used to be a stripper. Jacqueline had stated Teresa was behind it.
“I don’t play crazy Twitter games & threaten people, but I have to defend myself on this one: I don’t have a “contract” with any magazine,” tweeted Teresa. “Saw the In Touch mag this week. I’M on the cover WITH Jac & Caroline for our “secrets.” Don’t like the story. Had nothing to do with it.”
Hard to believe Teresa didn’t have some sort of deal with the mag as she graced their cover a number of times this summer, each time granting them exclusive interviews and photos.
Also want to add that there’s nothing wrong with Teresa being a working mom and getting help with her kids. It is however very hypocritical for her to constantly point out the fact that Melissa has a nanny while she doesn’t, when in reality, she has more help with her children.
You can read more of the Joe story in the latest issue of In Touch Weekly.
TELL US – THOUGHTS ON THE JOE CHEATING REPORTS? AND ON TERESA NOT BEING AS HANDS ON WITH HER KIDS AS SHE WOULD LIKE THE PUBLIC TO BELIEVE?
TMZ reports Jenelle, 20, alongside Jace and another female passenger were rushed to the hospital on Thursday after she crashed her SUV into a light pole.
The Wilmington, NC Police department told TMZ all three passengers were transported to a nearby hospital for minor injuries. Jenelle was driving the car while son Jace was in his car seat in the back.
The good news is all parties are doing well today, as evident by Jenelle’s tweets below, and cops tell TMZ there was no indication that drugs or alcohol played a role in the crash. The police are however still investigating.
Jenelle also took to her twitter, of course, to tell her side of the crash. Jenelle, who has had issues with drugs in the past, wanted to make it clear neither alcohol or drugs played a role in the crash. “LOOK TMZ.. Crashed into a pole in a parking lot going 10mph no drugs involved I’m clean. Jace is fine I’m injured in the hospital alone,” tweeted Jenelle.
She later added: “My mom took jace home and wouldn’t wait for me.” Jenelle’s mom BarbaraEvans currently has custody of Jace, and just last month, the two got into an altercation during which cops were called.
At first it appeared Jacqueline wasn’t going to respond to the shocking report, but she eventually did on Wednesday night when she took to her twitter page and wrote: “Chris and I want to share with you our wedding song…” The tweet included a link to a song by artist T-Pain titled “I’m In Love With A Stripper.”
Jacqueline later tweeted: “ITS A JOKE!!! GET IT????” She then added, “In case you were wondering… No, the rumors aren’t true. ( You know the ones;0) ).”
Jacqueline’s former friend and RHONJ costar Danielle Staubalso chimed in yesterday, maintaining Jacqueline was indeed a past stripper.
Hours after the report came out yesterday, Danielle, who has admitted to being a former stripper and then some, tweeted: “It only takes a moment to tell a lie but a lifetime to cover up! The truth always comes out! I’m proud that I’ve always kept it real.”
And when a fan asked Danielle why she never revealed Jacqueline’s alleged secret (though she sort of did weeks ago), Danielle replied: “That’s bc I’m not a backstabbing bitch I kept it to myself bc JL was so weak and asked me to not say anything.”
As we reported yesterday, Teresa Giudice also insinuated Jacqueline was a former stripper when she tweeted last month that she had “lots of ex-stripper friends…”She made that tweet the same day Jacqueline was making negative tweets about her.
As for Jacqueline’s friendship with Teresa UsWeekly is reporting that it is over for good and that Jacqueline has vowed she “will never speak to Teresa again.” She definitely has good reason as Jacqueline believes Teresa was the one who supplied In Touch Weekly with the stripper story.
The source reveals that Caroline Manzo is also done with Tre, stating that Caroline “hasn’t spoken to Teresa in months.” Our RHONJ insider told us the same thing weeks ago stating Caroline was NOT on speaking terms with Teresa, even before the Posche Fashion show drama. “Every time they get together to film, everyone’s fighting with Teresa,” says the source to UsWeekly. The ladies just wrapped up filming on season 4.
Teresa’s sister-in-law Melissa Gorgaadded: “Caroline is upset over the charade.” When it comes to the status of the Gorga/Giudice relationship, sources reveal it’s still definitely strained. “Teresa and Melissa still communicate for family stuff, but things are strained,” a show insider states.
As for the reunion drama, Melissa admits, “It was dramatic and painful to watch.”
Meanwhile, perhaps to further clear up the rumors that she met her hubby Chris Lauritawhile stripping, Jacqueline revealed on her blog today on exactly how she met her husband. Jacqueline wrote that she met Chris in “the summer of 1996 when Ashley was only five years old,” adding that at the time, she was renting “a chair in a salon doing hair as a licensed cosmetologist in Las Vegas.”
Jacqueline reveals she also did some modeling back then for “conventions that came to town.” Jacqueline says she “modeled clothes, shoes, accessories, electronics, computers” etc. She states she actually met Chris in Chicago during a trade show she was working at.

TELL US – THOUGHTS ON THE LATEST? DO YOU BELIEVE JACQUELINE’S TELLING THE TRUTH?
The network went about confirming the news in a rather FYI fashion as it simply showed Russell in a preview clip for next week’s episode instead of putting out a press release to announce its decision.
In the clip (posted below), which will air on Monday night, Russell can be seen having dinner with his wife Taylor Armstrongand her friend Kyle Richards, as he openly talks about suing co-star Lisa Vanderpump for talking about him to a magazine.
“So did you read the big story today?” asks Russell as he passes a magazine article across the dinner table. “They link it to Lisa. We’ll just serve them with a lawsuit,” he continues as Kyle looks on in surprise. “This is very awkward,” Kyle later states in a separate on-camera interview. “Am I next?” she asks.
Russell’s first appearance on the show this season will be on the 9th episode. The Bravo network had made certain to edit him out of the first eight episodes of the season despite the fact that the early season previews played up the Armstrongs’ marital issues as a major season storyline. Bravo however made drastic edits to the show following Russell’s suicide in August. He had blamed the show for ruining his life and marriage.
So far, there hasn’t been any major backlash against Bravo over its decision to air Russell’s scenes. Kyle and Adrienne Maloofalso spoke out on Bravo’s decision.
“I think it will be uncomfortable, a little bit,” says Kyle to Wetpaint. “But it was part of the story that was going on. This was shot six months before any of that happened. But it will probably be difficult [to watch].”
Adrienne added that seeing Russell on the show will definitely reopen some old wounds. “I think to see Russell in upcoming episodes will be a little tough. Overall, the suicide has been so horrific on all of us,” says Adrienne. “But I think it puts a face behind what has happened.”
My Thoughts – I say this is a good decision on Bravo’s part. The reason? Quite frankly Russell agreed to do the show not once, but twice by choosing to return for a second season despite publicly stating he did not like the “edit” he received in season 1. Though it is unknown whether or not he was contractually obligated to return to the show, it is highly unlikely as the housewives are usually the ones who sign contracts with Bravo, and not the husbands. Case in point – Jim Bellino’s decision to stop filming during the 6th season of the Real Housewives of OC. Plus I do not believe Bravo is to blame for Russell’s suicide in any way, shape, or form. And neither is Taylor. In fact, Russell’s lawyer has publicly stated on more than one occasion that Russell took his own life due to mounting financial difficulties. At the end of the day, Russell’s suicide, as unfortunate as it is, is reality. Reality that should not be altered on a reality show due to this unfortunate tragedy.
Yes he is no longer here to defend himself against any negative portrayal by Bravo but once again, he signed up to do the show and was not forced by Bravo. And the below comment made by Russell in one of his last interviews before his suicide leads me to believe he knew what he was doing, and had his own motives and reasons for doing RHOBH.
Russell told The Fix this summer about appearing on the Bravo hit show: “At first I was a little annoyed about all the bullsh*t, but then I realized it’s not so bad to be a celebrity. The thing is, all the publicity has been great for my business.”
Abuse Issue – This also makes way for Bravo to touch on the whole domestic abuse issue. While many fans of the show doubt Taylor’s claims of physical abuse, I for one do not. For starters, two of Russell’s exes (an ex-wife and ex-girlfriend) have stated in court documents, way before Russell even married Taylor, that he also physically abused them. PLUS Russell himself admitted to getting physical with his wife, telling PEOPLE in July that he “pushed” her. The last time I checked, pushing is physical abuse. Now I absolutely do get the skepticism, ahem… when you take Taylor’s sketchy past into consideration, but no matter how sketchy Taylor is, it doesn’t mean she was immune to being physically abused by her husband. I believe she was abused and I believe the abuse photos are real. I also believe that it is important for Bravo to tell this story if it can at least save the life of one battered woman.
Below is a preview clip featuring Russell on the upcoming episode via Toofab.com –
TELL US – DO YOU AGREE OR DISAGREE WITH BRAVO’S DECISION TO AIR RUSSELL’S SCENES? DO YOU BELIEVE TAYLOR WAS ABUSED? SHOULD BRAVO TELL THE ABUSE STORY?
