We’re just days into 2012, and unfortunately for the sanctity of marriage, its stock continues to take a dip!

In today’s Real Housewives of Beverly Hills news, Brandi Glanville really wants some attention has married again!

Yes, the RHOBH extra star tied the knot with Darin Harvey over the weekend in Las Vegas and tweeted all through the experience.

“Getting married @darinharvey !!!,” tweeted Brandi on Saturday night, later adding “Follow my new husband! @darinharvey. Getting my ring tomorrow! Yes I did really do it!”

In fact, Brandi even posted wedding photos (those are below) from her Vegas nuptials. Following Brandi’s tweets many fans began to wonder if she actually tied the knot and it turns out she really did!

Brandi confirms to E! News that her and Darin, a MMA talent manager (who she refers to as her BFF), did indeed get married. “Yes, we had a New Year’s ceremony,” Brandi said. “He is just a BFF — we will annul it.”

Indeed, hours after tying the knot, Darin, a single father, tweeted “Don’t worry @BrandiGlanville and I had a crazy Vegas moment. Getting annulled tomorrow.” Brandi also admitted to E! News that her decision to get married was a spontaneous and drunken one, saying, “It’s all a blur.”

So there you have it folks! Brandi is married… for the time being. Brandi’s ex-husband actor Eddie Cibrian, married his former mistress LeAnn Rimes back in April. Brandi’s wedding photos are below!

The short long wait is over as the new season of The Bachelor returns tonight on ABC!

On the 16th season of the ABC hit show, Ben Flajnik, who was rejected by Bachelorette Ashley Hebert last year after getting down on one knee to propose, returns to find love amongst 25 desperate eager bachelorettes!

When asked if he found love on the show, Ben plays coy stating “I obviously can’t tell you that. But I’m happy with my decision in doing the show. Another good experience. Another cathartic, therapeutic adventure for me.” Hint – He did and is now engaged!

So what is Ben looking for in a potential mate? “It’s important for me to be with someone who’s well-rounded, cultured and flexible,” says Ben, 29. “Not someone who is so used to routine. Because my life is very sporadic. Being in the wine industry, no two days are the same. So those were important qualities that I looked for.”

Ben is also asked if he’s concerned that, you know, pretty much 99% of the show’s relationships end up not working out. “Relationships end whether you’re on a TV show or not. Some haven’t worked out and some have. There are some celebrated relationships on this show,” claims Ben. Good answer!

Ben also assures us that when “all of this is said and done, I just want to go back to my life in Northern California, where most people really don’t know who I am. And I’d prefer it that way.”

As for what we can expect on tonight’s premiere, sensitive New York blogger Jenna has an emotional breakdown over Ben while another contestant Monica — who is reportedly bisexual — shows more interest in a fellow contestant than in Ben! And Brittney tries to snag a first impression rose by bringing her Grandma on to meet Ben.

The Bachelor premieres tonight at 8/7c on ABC.

Ai ya ya. It seems the widely rumored lesbian fling between Taylor Armstrong and Fernanda Rocha did happen after all!

The National Enquirer first reported back in September that Taylor, star of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, was seen having a hot and heavy make-out session with former Real Housewives of Orange County star Fernanda.

Taylor denied it back then calling the report “ridiculous”, yet Fernanda admits it all in the latest issue of In Touch Weekly magazine. According to the mag, on August 15, just four days before her 47-year-old estranged husband Russell Armstrong took his own life, Taylor, 40, was spotted kissing openly gay Fernanda, 34, after sparks flew between the two during an earlier fashion show.

Later that evening, the two women groped their way through dinner at a restaurant and shared passionate kisses in Fernanda’s Lexus SUV before heading off to a party together.

A scorned Fernanda tells In Touch that despite their crazy chemistry, Taylor had no problem tossing her aside once she realized the hookup wasn’t good for her image. “Be responsible for your actions and don’t dismiss the other human being that you are connecting with,” is Fernanda’s message to Taylor today.

Fernanda adds that Taylor warned her to keep her mouth shut about what happened between them. “When people started asking, it was like, ‘Don’t say this, don’t say that…’ That is hurtful,” said Fernanda who admits she decided to remain mum after Russell’s passing because she was “protecting” Taylor.

Fernanda goes on to add that she doesn’t appreciate being used by Taylor. “A lot of straight girls want to have an experience with another woman, but they don’t take into consideration that we’re human!” is Fernanda’s PSA.

This isn’t the first time Fernanda has been used and dumped as her former costar Tamra Barney also did the same to her on the last season of the RHOC. “When I saw her joke about it in interviews, she was a little bit dismissive,” says Fernanda of Tamra adding, “Gay people are not something to play around with like a toy.”

You can read more about this in the latest issue of In Touch Weekly.

TELL US – THOUGHTS ON TAYLOR’S LESBIAN FLING? IS FERNANDA JUST A SCORNED LOVER OR DOES SHE HAVE A RIGHT TO BE UPSET?

Check out the latest in celebrity headlines:

Has she or hasn’t she? There are conflicting reports today on whether or not Kim Richards has checked out of rehab before the end of her 30-day stay.

According to RadarOnline, the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star has checked out of rehab after Bravo reportedly forced her to seek help or risk losing her spot on the hit show.

Sources tell the site that Kim, 47, sought help at the insistence of Bravo after a Thanksgiving that had her loved ones very concerned about her health.

“On Thanksgiving Kim was stumbling and stuttering. It’s her normal,” a source close to Kim tells Radar. “She definitely abuses alcohol,” the source added. Kim herself has admitted on the show to taking a concoction of prescription pills, which includes Lexapro, Trazadone and Topamax.

“The pressures the women face being on the show are enormous,” the source told Radar. “Kim was basically told that if she wanted to stay on the show then she had to get help, so she did. Kim doesn’t have any other significant source of income and she needs to keep her job on the show.”

RadarOnline adds that Kim plans to continue her treatment with outpatient therapy.

PEOPLE magazine also confirmed Radar’s report with a source telling them Kim had indeed checked out of rehab. However, just moments after the report came out Kim’s rep insisted to PEOPLE magazine that she has yet to check out. In fact, while Kim’s sister, Kyle Richards, isn’t confirming whether Kim is still in rehab or not Kyle did reveal she visited Kim last night on her Twitter page.

“Happy night w/ my sister @KimRichards11…” tweeted Kyle last night along with a picture of herself and Kim. That pic is posted below. “Loved the time I got to spend w/ my sister @KimRichards11. I love u and am so proud of u. Xoxo,” tweeted Kyle today.

“She’s doing okay,” a source tells PEOPLE. “Everyone is hoping for the best.” The source states that Kim’s daughter Kimberly was also part of the visit. “They were all happy to see each other,” adds the source.

As reported a while back, this isn’t Kim’s first rehab stint. “Every time is a new time, and everyone just hopes this sticks and that she gets the help she needs,” another source told PEOPLE earlier this month when Kim first checked into rehab.

Two conflicting reports. I will say though that for PEOPLE magazine to originally report Kim had left rehab means they had to have had a very credible source. My guess is that Kim did indeed leave rehab before the end of her 30-day stay and her rep is now doing damage control. But only time will tell.

In the meantime, below is a picture of Kim and Kyle from yesterday.

More dramz to report about the famewhoring Keeping Up With The Kardashians family!

TMZ is reporting today that a former nanny is shopping a tell-all book, detailing her time with the family before they became famous, you know, before Kimmie’s sex tape “leaked!”

The ex-nanny, Pam Behan, also served as a personal assistant and cook for Bruce and Kris Jenner for years. And judging from what Pam, who spent a ton of time with the Kardashian girls as well as Brandon and Brody Jenner has to say, it’s clear she wasn’t a fan of some of the Jenner-Kardashian clan!

TMZ reports that Pam states in the proposed book that she couldn’t stand Bruce’s sons, calling them “extremely spoiled and disrespectful.” She also reveals she almost lost her job once for apparently slapping Brandon. Ummm child services anyone?

When it comes to the Kardashians, Pam reveals she had a love/hate relationship with Kris Jenner though she loved Bruce. Pam also promises to reveal some juicy information a.k.a. “intimate details” about Kim and Kourtney Kardashian. Sources close to the girls tell TMZ they are surprised by Pam’s book as they were very fond of her. Evidently, the feeling is not mutual.

As of the moment, Pam is still shopping the book around and has yet to sign a book deal.

…Moving on to Kimmie Kakes, who just revealed the other day that she had turned a new leaf following the backlash that resulted from her 72-day marriage.

Well, that new leaf seems a lot like her old one as Kimmie is reportedly set to make major bank to host a New Year’s Eve party in Las Vegas! How make does Kimmie stand to earn? Just a mere $600,000! The fee is said to be part of a large, multi-event deal. In comparison, Katy Perry, you know, a celebrity with actual talent is said to be asking for $250,000 to host a NYE party.

As we reported a while back, the TAO nightclub where Kimmie will be hosting the NYE party is charging club goers $200 for general admission! Wowzers.

It appears that whole minor being locked up in jail thingy and not being able to see her child is having a major impact on Amber Portwood.

The Teen Mom star, who remains in jail since being locked up two weeks ago for violating her probation, made some startling revelations during a recent court appearance.

The Herald Bulletin reports that during her court hearing last week an Indiana judge ruled that Amber, 21, remain in jail during the holidays until her hearing in January.

In addition to violating her probation by failing to submit to drug tests, not getting her GED or completing anger management classes, Amber is also accused of new charges — committing battery (stemming from a recent restaurant fight) and possession of a controlled substance (cops found her with over 40 pills without a prescription).

Amber testified that upon leaving a Malibu rehab facility this summer, she saw a medical doctor for back pain and other issues. The doctor prescribed hydrocodone which she admitted she began to abuse. According to Amber, the medication contributed to the probation violations and new offenses.

Amber then made a shocking revelation when she testified that she felt pressured and exploited through her work with MTV. “I want to quit, and I will,” she said of her participation on the hit — Teen Mom.

Her attorney, Evan Broderick, added that his client longs to return to a normal life. Interesting though I’m not certain quitting the show will help with most of the issues she is facing. Amber, who attempted suicide back in June, has revealed she is still suicidal and has been diagnosed with extreme bipolar disorder.
