In the midst of celebrating a world championship with her NBA hubby Lamar Odom, E! reality star Khloe Kardashian is also having to defend her recent gift to him.
It all started when Kris Jennertold the world E! News about Khloe’s present to Lamar for winning a championship with the Lakers. “It’s a brand new 2010 Rolls Royce …d rop-top coupe, white on white,” said Kris.
And the price tag for Khloe’s gift? Just a mere $400,000. The amount of course sent tongues wagging with I and many people speculating that the gift was likely purchased with Lamar’s NBA paycheck.
Khloe however denied this when she took to her twitter yesterday. “People r so pathetic,” Khloe, 25, Tweeted. “Y would I give some1 a gift w/ their money? That’s lame. I actually make my own money. Shocking I know. Stop hating!”
Glad you cleared that up Khloe. RadarOnline is also reporting now that the NBA season is over, Khloe and Lamar will finally take their honeymoon, as they never got to take one last year. The couple will be taking a private jet sometime this week bound for Cabo San Lucas. And part of their honeymoon will be filmed for one of their reality shows, likely Kourtney and Khloe Take Miami.
Khloe and Lamar have also been spending time this week with Lamar’s kids from his previous relationship with ex-girlfriend Liza Morales. Photos of Khloe & Lamar with his kids are below, as well as a photo of Liza, who bears a striking resemblance to Khloe.
We start off this episode with an awkward dinner or lunch or something between Caroline, Teresa and Jacqueline. The ladies discuss Dina’s exit from the show and of course Danielle’s name is brought up in the conversation. The only part that stands out in this scene is when Caroline says, “I feel so bad for Dina. She’s going through so much.” Come again Caroline? Dina’s going through so much? Like what exactly? As we the viewers haven’t been privy to any of Dina’s problems, infact we have been led to believe Dina’s life was all unicorns, lollipops and rainbows with the exception of the Danielle drama.
I thought Caroline’s comment was interesting to say the least. Reason #192 by the NJ cast sucks? Well thanks to the ladies focusing on the Danielle drama so much, we don’t get to hear about or see their own personal issues and drama. The ladies decide they need to watch out for Danielle because “she’s capable of anything,” and the dinner/lunch/brunch or something scene ends.
Next up is Danielle‘s visit with a plastic surgeon. Was I the only one who noticed some lights were out on the sign for the plastic surgery office? Not sure that I would be putting my life on the line in what looks like a motel reject but Danielle is more than ready to fix her wonky tits, so she will take the chance! And thanks to the now infamous sex tape she made before this revision surgery, we can all affirm her boobs were indeed deformed.
Danielle then once again breaks out her her boo hoo story about feeling so undesirable due to her wonky tits, and I can imagine a good percentage of viewers are rolling their eyes at this point.
We then get to see Lauren Manzodoing makeup at her makeup school, and overbearing mama Caroline of course pays her daughter a visit. Don’t get me wrong, Caroline seems like a great mother, but she just appears to be way too involved in the lives of her children. It appears she has nothing else going on in her life other than her children and family. At this stage in her kids’ lives, it might be time for Caroline to began pulling back, and perhaps work on finding a hobby that doesn’t involve her children. Someone commented a while back, saying they already feel bad for Caroline’s future daughter-in-laws, and can’t say I disagree.
Ashley decides to pay her parents a visit and apologizes for her bratty behavior at the poker game. Ashley informs her parents she wants to come back home, which I think is great, because she had no business living on her own to begin with. She simply lacks the maturity needed to make it on her own at this point in her life.
Next up is Teresa and she informs us she is having a housewarming party for her new home. We finally get to meet nutty party planner Elvira Grau, who immediately scolds Teresa for not having help or a pool for that matter. Something about Teresa was off this episode. She just seemed a bit more laid back and more quiet. I’m guessing this was filmed at the peak of her financial problems. When you think about it, Danielle made her sex tape in September 2009, before her visit with the plastic surgeon in this episode. Teresa filed for bankruptcy in October 2009, meaning this episode was definitely filmed right before or right after the bankruptcy filing.
Back to the show, Teresa and Elvira have an interesting exchange.
Elvira- Why don’t you have a pool?
Teresa - (Awkward pause) Because I have a beach house. (Quick thinking there Teresa!)
Elvira - I have a beach house, I have a pool.
Elvira once again scolds Teresa for not having help, and at this point it’s pretty obvious Kim D. and Kim G. are not the only ones auditioning for Bravo. It however seems Elvira has her sights set on something bigger than just the Housewives’ franchise. The annoying, rude and overbearing party planner is aiming for her own Bravo spin off!
The big rumor last week was that Kate Gosselin might be the next Bachelorettefor the ABC hit dating show. The rumors then grew legs after the higher ups at ABC, including the show’s creator publicly commented on the rumors, saying they would love to have Kate on the show.
Kate’s people however quickly shut down the rumors by issuing a denial. Well now fast forward to a week later and it seems the Kate Plus 8 mom might be open to the idea. When RadarOnline caught up with Kate back home in PA, they asked her about the dating show rumors and her answer or non denial rather was quite telling.
“It’s furious… I really… everybody… they’re just all talking about it and I haven’t said anything,” coyly replied Kate, who then added, “I am lonely and I do need help… and I’m not mean like everyone says I am.”
If she had zero interest in doing a dating show, she would have just answered no right? Funny enough, we blogged last week that Kate would likely sign on for the Bachelorette if the price was right. According to reports, she received $500,000 for her appearance on Dancing With The Stars, and there’s a good chance she could receive double that amount to appear on the Bachelorette.
And the above picture of Kate? Well it was taken this week as she was simply doing some shopping at a local Target and Bed Bath and Beyond in Reading, Pennsylvania. Seems like a certain someone is enjoying her time in the limelight.
TELL US – WOULD YOU WATCH KATE ON THE BACHELORETTE?
“Jake and Vienna have split,” says Janice Lee, a rep for the couple. “They appreciate the respect for their privacy at this time.”
Jake, 32, shocked fans on last season’s Bachelor finale when he chose “party girl” Vienna , 24, over contestant Tenley Molzahn. The pair have been very vocal and public about their love, as Vienna could be seen supporting Jake during his brief stint on Dancing With The Stars.
The split also seems rather sudden considering the pair was just photographed at an ABC event less than two weeks ago. Even more odd? Jake was just tweeting to Vienna three days ago. “Vienna gets to meet my trainer Cat next week. Hahahaha! I’m so sorry baby…! HA! @viennagirardi,” tweeted Jake on June 19th.
And despite the cheating rumors that arose after the Bachelor ended, the two always denied Jake was unfaithful and maintained all was well. Neither party has yet to publicly comment on the break up. PEOPLE however reports Jake is currently in Atlanta, taping a guest spot on the Lifetime series Drop Dead Diva; while Vienna is in Los Angeles.
Jake and Vienna are the 13th couple to break up from the Bachelor franchise. No word yet on whether Vienna will be giving back the $50,000, Niel Lane 3-carat ring she received from Jake.
TELL US – ARE YOU SURPRISED BY THIS BREAK UP? IS THE BACHELOR STILL EFFECTIVE FOR FINDING LOVE?
It seems while VH1 was airing the reunion show of Basketball Wives, the real drama was taking place in Twitterville.
Matt Barnes, fiance of cast member Gloria Govan, didn’t appreciate what the ladies had to say about he and his fiance, mostly when they all declared they didn’t know who he was before the show. The led to Matt unleashing a verbal smackdown on the ladies.
“@FirstLadyEve& @RedCarpet_17 yall hoes enjoy ur 5mins of fame & when it runs out make sure u find another athlete/celeb 2 SUCK dry. TRICKS!!!
@REDCARPET_17 Yall post all the fake shit u want. Lookn like Joe Camel go shoot a commercial. Ms (Status) FukOutaHere!!

The ladies however did not take Matt’s twitter abuse laying down. Here’s what they also tweeted to Matt –
(Jennifer) – Do u wanna talk abt the model u smashed in NY then put in a cab while ur fiance was pregnant? Yeah, I didn’t think so CLOWN! @Matt_Barnes22
(Evelyn) @Matt_Barnes22 Guns are out and loaded! Let’s get it going! Tired of ur ass talking shit! Test tube baby!

(Shaunie) RT @MinisterMP: Don’t waste your breath on fools, for they will despise the wisest advice.Prov23:9NLT
This isn’t the first time Matt has unleashed on the ladies via twitter. Gloria, who did not attend the reunion, gave a new interview to VH1 and had some interesting things to say regarding Shaunie and Matt’s twitter attacks. Excerpts are below -
What do you think of the stuff Matt said to the women on the show via Twitter?
I think he has gone back and forth with them. I don’t have a Twitter account that I have used in a long time. I don’t follow them, they don’t follow me so it would’ve been pointless to get involved. Mainly, I told Matt don’t waste his time. They’re just unnecessary. They’re not a factor in our lives, to entertain ignorance belittles you and brings you down to their level. Part of me was proud of him, though. I was kind of excited. I was glad that he stood up to them. He protected me in a sense. I was excited for that, but I also told him it was probably a waste of time.
Are ties completely severed with Shaunie?
I think so. I don’t think I have aimed any of my comments at Shaunie in a negative light. From what I’ve heard, she had tried to say things about me or about Matt or about our relationship in general that just aren’t nice. I just think it’s also very immature. For someone to be grown with five kids, I feel like she should have better things to do with her time.
TELL US: WHAT ARE YOUR THOUGHTS ON THE DRAMA BETWEEN MATT AND THE LADIES?
While Bravo housewives are notorious for being indulgent, this week’s episode goes to show just how much they love to pose entertain. As Teresa Giudice, who’s $11 million bankruptcy filing was recently unveiled, decides to break in her new home by hiring a party planner to throw a housewarming party. And yes, this is the same home that was briefly put on the market a week ago and is rumored will soon be in foreclosure.
The over the top party will include an extravagant red carpet and fire eaters. Clearly, excess is not an issue in the Garden State. Meanwhile Caroline must face the fact that her son Albie Manzomight get kicked out of law school due to bad grades. The new episode airs tonight at 10/9c.
Dina Getting Replaced? – This has been all the buzz this weekend, when rumors hit that Elvira Grau (pictured above – what is she wearing?), who happens to be Teresa’s party planner on tonight’s episode, would be replacing Dina Manzo for the remainder of the season. The Dish Rag however shuts down the rumors, even saying there will be no replacement for Dina this season. What a bummer. I guess the women vs. Danielle drama will continue to be the main plot for the show. Bravo really dropped the ball with this one. It would have been perfect timing to introduce a new housewife, and change things up.
Danielle Stalking Ashley? – Those are the claims of Ashley Holmes, daughter of Jacqueline Laurita. Ashley tweeted the following this weekend:
“just found out that @daniellestaub came by my work yesterday “looking for me”.. WTF.. what a crazy STALKER !! GO AWAY!! & get a life.”
Judging from Danielle Staub‘s actions this season, this doesn’t come as a surprise. Ashley also tweeted that the sex tape queen must not be struggling anymore since her bill from Ashley’s workplace came to $500. Ashley added, “how are you liking your new condo at ‘The Watermark on Hudson’ ?..where does a struggling single mom get all that money?”
A quick look at The Watermark condos show condos ranging in price from $800,000 to $3,100,000. If true, then it’s safe to say her sex tape is doing well on the market. Good to see selling her soul sex tape is paying off financially. Let’s all hope Danielle saves some of the sex tape dough for the therapy she badly needs.

The photos, which were first leaked online 2 years ago, show the mother of two posing nude in various locations. What's a bit shocking about the pictures is that they were taken just 10 weeks after the birth of Alex’s second son Johan.
InTouch magazine did an article on the pictures two years ago during which Alex said she was not ashamed of the photos. “I’m very proud of them – they’re beautiful,” said Alex of the pics which were taken by professional photographer James Demaria.
“It was a celebration that a new mom can be in great shape,” continued Alex who said she had no regrets. “I’d happily show them to my mother or anyone else!”
What's odd is all of the photos showing actual nudity seem to have disappeared off the net. Hours spent in trying to find the gallery or any photos showing nudity only came up with deleted pages and errors. It's a safe guess Alex and hubby Simon van Kempen might have gotten their lawyers involved.
A number of photos from the shoot were however found, though Alex's bits and pieces are covered up with stars, smiley faces etc, you still get the idea of what the photos look like. Those are below and slightly NSFW.
In other NYC news, Bethenny Frankeltold PEOPLE magazine she would consider returning to the NYC Housewives for a 4th season if changes were made to the cast. “I don’t see myself going back to The Real Housewives the way that the cast is now,” said Bethenny, who also shared that she is very happy with the success of her new show and the direction her life is going in.
It's likely the cast change Bethenny is referring to would have to do with co-star Kelly Bensimon leaving the show. There seemed to be a mixed reaction to Bethenny's comment. While some fans are saying good for her, others feel Bethenny is turning up her nose at the show that made her a star.

It seems being single is just not in the cards for Kim Kardashian. Less than three months after being dumped breaking up with NFL beau of over 2 years, Reggie Bush, numerous media outlets are now linking Kim to a new man.
The new man in Kim’s life is Miles Austin, who just happens to a NFL player as well. Perhaps football is Kim’s favorite sport. According to Hollywoodlife, the two have been out on numerous dates, and were completely flirtatious over dinner at Sherman Oaks, Calif. eatery June 6.
“Miles was talking to Kim very closely face to face. He was ‘in her business’, so to speak, but she didn’t seem to mind at all. They were laughing a ton, and smiling a lot as well,” reveals Kris Jenner an eyewitness.
While sources say the two are still in the early stages of dating, it seems Miles, 25, is really into the 29-year-old Keeping Up With The Kardashians reality star. “Any intimate touching? That was all Miles. He kept putting his hands through her hair and doing gentlemanly stuff like holding open doors. He also paid the bill,” adds the insider who adds there were “obvious sparks” between the two.
In other Kardashian news, Kim and sister Kourtney Kardashian attended an event this Saturday to celebrate the 7th anniversary of Vegas magazine. The three sisters recently graced the magazine cover donning all white bathing suits.
Khloe was however missing from the event, as she was home in LA celebrating the Lakers championship with husband Lamar Odom and his kids.
