Another day, another Kardashian controversy.

The latest involves Kim Kardashian of course following the release of a Turkish Cosmopolitan Magazine cover featuring her. The problem? Kim is Armenian and the Turks committed genocide against the Armenian people nearly 100 years ago, and still refuse to acknowledge it.

Plus the magazine did not get Kim’s permission before splashing her on the Turk cover at a time that coincides with the Genocide Remembrance Day, which commemorates the victims of the 1915 Armenian genocide.

TMZ adds that Kim was completely unaware she was on the Turkish cover until they did a story about it yesterday. Sources tell TMZ that Kim was very upset and would never have approved the use of her photo in the Turkish version.

But fret not folks as it all ends well for Kimmy. A new TMZ report today states Kim and Cosmo have kissed and made up already with a new photo shoot already in the works, that could take place as early as this week. Sources however make it clear Kim really struggled with her decision to work with Cosmo again because even though she has an “amazing relationship” with the mag, she’s very passionate about her Armenian heritage.

In other Kardashian news, Khloe Kardashian and hubby Lamar Odom visited the Ellen DeGeneres Show in a new interview airing today, during which they both revealed Lamar actually tried to quit their new reality show Khloe and Lamar during filming.

“I thought it was going to be easy. It’s really tough,” admits Lamar. “I knew from doing my family’s show how intense and grueling and how much they are really in your face,” Khloe, 26, says. “I personally didn’t want to do the show. I love taping. I just didn’t want to put Lamar through that pressure and Lamar was like, ‘let’s do it.'”

Khloe then reveals that Lamar had a tough time with the cameras and tried to quit the show 3 days into filming. “He said, ‘Can you tell your mom to get us out of this contract?’ I go, ‘Absolutely not. That ship has sailed,'” Khloe said.

But fret not again folks as this story also has a happy ending. “Lamar loves the finished product,” added Khloe.

And finally, Kim is also gracing the latest cover of UK Cosmopolitan. Photos from that issue are below –

Nene Leakes vs Star Jones take 10.

Following Nene’s latest shameful display on Celebrity Apprentice during which she verbally attacked La Toya Jackson for no good reason at all, Star is now speaking out against the Nene once again.

In a new interview with Popeater, Star tells the site “you never get involved in a pig fight,” when asked about Nene. “If you do, three things happen: you get dirty, you get tired, and only the pig has fun. It diminishes me to talk about her. I have so many other things going on in my life.”

And when it comes to her upcoming fight with Nene on the show, Star reveals she had to restrain herself from really going off. “In my heart, I think ‘pray, don’t act crazy, your grandmother is watching, your sorority sisters are watching, you were raised better than this,'” states Star.

Star, who recently released her book Satan’s Sisters, then takes the ultimate swipe at the Nene, referencing her past as a stripper. “I know there are people that value my opinion,” says Star about wanting to set a good example. “Plus, I’m not 20 minutes off the pole.” Ouch!

In other Nene news, RadarOnline is reporting she badly wants her own show. Apparently, Nene wants her own spin-off show a la Bethenny Frankel, or a talk show a la Oprah Winfrey.

“Nene is actively shopping herself around and she wants her own chat show and if that does not happen she would like her own reality show instead,” says a source. “She was encouraged when she did some slots with local television stations in Atlanta and she thinks that she has what it takes to be the next Oprah or Wendy Williams.”

The Nene has reportedly had talks with Bravo and VH-1 about getting her own show though a recent report states she and her Real Housewives of Atlanta costars have signed on to return for another season.

It was classical night on Dancing With The Stars Monday as the stars had to groove to classical music courtesy of a 46-piece orchestra.

The dances of the night were the paso doble, waltz or Viennese waltz. And with a few weeks into the show, it seems the top spot continues to be up for grabs as a new star led the leaderboard for the 3rd consecutive week.

In her taped package, Disney starlet Chelsea Kane made it clear she wanted to break away from the rest of the pack and that she did. Chelsea got the highest score of the night, a 26 for her “beautiful” Viennese Waltz with partner Mark Ballas. “It was magical, fabulous, beautiful and bewitching,” said Bruno, “and technically speaking, it was the best dance of the night.”

Coming close to Chelsea’s score were Hines Ward and Ralph Macchio, both earning a score of 25 for their dances. Hines continued to emerge as an early favorite with his explosive paso doble. “You’re really doing great,” said Len. Also earning rave reviews from the judges was Ralph, who also danced the Viennese Waltz.

Kirstie Alley continued to fall to the bottom of the pack despite getting a solid score of 22 for her elegant waltz which earned her a standing ovation. Kirstie, who complained of a hip injury, suffered another mishap for the second week in a row when her shoe came off during a dance move. Kirstie still managed to receive praises from the judges. “You didn’t miss a beat,” said Carrie Ann with Bruno adding she did “amazingly well.”

Kendra Wilkinson continued to disappoint after being declared the favorite to win the show before the premiere. With a score of 18 for her messy Viennese waltz, Kendra is at the bottom of the scoreboard, in serious danger of going home tonight.

The scores from last night below:

Chelsea Kane & Mark Ballas: 26
Hines Ward & Kym Johnson: 25
Ralph Macchio & Karina Smirnoff: 25
Chris Jericho & Cheryl Burke: 23
Petra Nemcova & Dmitry Chaplin: 23
Romeo & Chelsie Hightower: 23
Kirstie Alley & Maksim Chmerkovskiy: 22
Sugar Ray Leonard & Anna Trebunskaya: 21
Kendra Wilkinson & Louis Van Amstel: 18

A new episode of the Real Housewives of Orange County aired last night on Bravo bringing us some fake boobs & faker friendships, a “sexy” Spain vacation, a filler vow renewal ceremony, and most importantly some excellent evidence footage for certain Coto employees, just in case they ever decide to file a certain sexual harassment lawsuit.

The episode begins with Vicki taking some time out of her very busy work schedule to go on a boat ride with Donn and the kids. And no she didn’t bring her laptop, believe me – I was looking for it. But unfortunately for Vicki’s family, fun Vicki is only reserved for her helpless employees as she is more of a Debbie Downer on the boat.

Following the drama filled “breakdown” episode last week, a new episode of Bethenny Ever After airs tonight on Bravo at 10/9c.

On the 7th episode this season titled “The Mile High Club,” Bethenny anticipates her debut on “Skating With the Stars,” yet she feels like she’s on thin ice. Her schedule is hectic, Thanksgiving is approaching and she’ll be away from baby Bryn for the first time when she visits the Skinny Girl bottling plant. Also tonight, Bethenny will be forced to deal with some comments made about her by her estranged mom. A preview clip is below –

In other Bethenny Frankel news, some good news as her latest book A Place of Yes is currently #5 on the New York Time’s Best-Seller list for Hardcover Advice and Misc. This makes the third time Bethenny has made the list. Bethenny continues to ride high as Bravo recently announced her show has been picked up for a third season and a report came out last week stating she has received her own talk show.

And speaking of a place of yes, Bethenny has received criticism from many fans of her show this season for doing the exact opposite aka coming from a place of no by saying no to Jason’s parents, no to Jason, etc. And following last week’s episode in which she appeared ungrateful after receiving some surprise presents at her birthday party, which led to an odd breakdown, more fans continue to turn against her, bringing us to the question below.

Meanwhile, following the debut of Bravo’s new show Pregnant In Heels in which Rosie Pope, a maternity concierge caters to the affluent, Jill Zarin had a critique of her own. “Watching Preg in Heels. Is she deaf or have speech impediment? I can’t understand her. Does anyone else notice that? Or is it just me?” tweeted a renewed Jill. And when a fan accused her of being mean, she responded, “I was not trying to be mean. She is star of her own show and I can’t understand all her words. Asking if am only one who noticed.”

Jersey Shore 3 Cast

After the widely reported contract hold outs, all of the Jersey Shore cast members have signed on to return for season 4!

TMZ reports Snooki, The Situation, JWoww and the rest of the gang will be heading to Italy in May to start filming. While TMZ doesn’t state the exact amount the cast will be earning, it does add that everyone is “very pleased with the outcome.”

Meanwhile, Entertainment Weekly is reporting that the cast got a HUGE raise! Just how huge? Let’s try over $100,000 per episode! Yes, you read that right. Sources close to the negotiations tell EW members of the “core group” are now pulling down at least $100,000 per episode.

With each season producing an average of 14 episodes, this means a number of the Jersey Shore cast will earn over $1 million each for season 4 to simply drink, party & fight. Wowzers! The cast reportedly earned $30,000 per episode for season 3.

And finally, MTV announced last week it has picked up two Jersey Shore spin-off shows. The first show will focus on DJ Pauly D and his life on the road as “one of the country’s most in-demand DJs.” While the second show will follow BFFs Snooki and JWoww, chronicling their experiences as roommates after their lives on “Jersey Shore.”

MTV has ordered 12 episodes of each spin-off, and plans to debut both shows sometime in 2012.

If there’s one thing to be learned from last night’s Celebrity Apprentice, it is that ratings trumps all. Meaning how else can you explain Donald Trump choosing to keep Gary Busey over the other sane more deserving contestants?

The challenge yesterday was to create a marketing campaign for the Australian Gold sunscreen products. The men’s Team Backbone came out on the losing end after the Australian Gold execs decided they did not like the pirates theme nor the fact that the men failed to integrate their key brand messaging aka their Koala Bear mascot.

The team managers were Mark McGrath and La Toya Jackson. In the board room, the men’s team banded together, making it crystal clear Gary was their weakest link and deserved to go home. Unfortunately for Mark, he was sent packing after the Donald realized the entertaining Gary was better for the ratings.

Now onto the good stuff as Nene Leakes displayed her lack of class on national television yet again, but this time around in front of a few million more viewers than that show on Bravo.

While in the board room, Nene called out La Toya for not being a good team manager. Okay, fair enough. La Toya defended herself and all seemed to be okay as the women’s team did win after all.

Donald asked Nene to apologize to La Toya and she refused. Still fair enough. However, upon exiting the board room, the Nene decided to completely lose her sh*t, going off on La Toya and repeatedly insulting her.

“Don’t ever try me like that! I worked my a– off while you sat there and looked like Casper the Ghost. Listen here, Casper,” said Nene. “The only reason you’ve gotten this far is because of your last name. You faked it for 50 years. You are very old. You need to play your age and not 12. You are an old lady.” And why exactly is Nene famous herself?

La Toya managed to keep her cool and simply walked away. “She feels she can run over me. I will not stoop to her level. We’re torn from two different cloths. I’m sorry,” stated La Toya aka she is trash and I am not.

La Toya also summed up the Nene perfectly when she stated, “Nene is nothing but a big bully. She’s got a big mouth. That’s all she’s is – mouth and height. She uses that to her advantage.” And where was Nene’s mouth when Dionne Warwick was calling her a coward? Seems like she definitely enjoys picking on those she deems as being weak aka La Toya and Kim Zolciak.

And once again, Nene received a lot of backlash from fans causing her to make the following tweets last night –

“Ok Ok Ok yall r blowing my timeline up! Latoya & I hav made peace & moved on!”

“I luv my tweetie pies but Some of yall do flip flop from week 2 week but it’s all good! I’m n a really good place rite now so it’s ok.”

Guess that makes it all okay. And judging from next week’s previews, it seems the Nene will continue to rear its ugly attitude.

A week after Playboy founder Hugh Hefner announced on twitter that Karina Smirnoff had posed nude for the May issue of the mag, many are still surprised and wondering why she made that choice.

Well, the Dancing With The Stars pro is explaining just that via excerpts from her interview with Playboy. “I’m fearless and love the adrenaline rush,” Karina, 32, tells the mag. “Sexy is the confident energy a person produces. Sexy is the comfortable feeling of being who you are.”

PEOPLE also reports that the higher ups at DWTS are not upset with Karina for posing nude. “They did know ahead of time and they still gave her one of the best pairings,” reveals a source.

In other DWTS news, TMZ is reporting that dancer Mark Ballas and American Idol’s recently eliminated contestant Pia Toscano are hooking up!

According to the site, the two went on a first date on Friday night. As for how the date came about, TMZ states it all started with Pia who developed a crush on Mark as they both shoot their respective shows on the CBS Television City lot in L.A.

Pia apparently had her eye on Mark for weeks and decided to give her friend a piece of paper with her number on it. That friend handed it to DWTS contestant Chris Jericho, who then passed it on to Mark.

Mark was said to have been more than receptive and even rescheduled a music video shoot so he could go on their date on Friday. The two are said to be smitten and plan to do it all again soon. A photo of Mark and Pia after their date is below!

Pia seems to be having a pretty good week as it was also reported she scored herself a record deal less than 24 hours after her Idol elimination.
