Tonight, Bad Girls Club: New Orleans officially comes to an end with the airing of the reunion part II!
During the show, host Perez Hilton brings up the Tiara and Angie fight, and Tiara reveals she was shocked when the fight happened. Meanwhile Nastasia thinks Angie flip-flopped in the house which of course makes Angie upset. Priscilla and Angie then start to argue and Priscilla throws a punch at Angie causing the girls to break out into a cat fight! A preview clip is below!
Also on the reunion part II, Perez confronts Tasha and Priscilla about their homophobic coments. The girls deny it but Perez isn’t buying it and rolls a clip of Tasha’s homophobic behavior to back up his argument. Perez then states being gay isn’t a choice, adding that he was born gay, the same way Tasha was born trashy! Ouch.
According to a new report, Kim Kardashian is not only experiencing the wrath of the general public over her sham marriage and quickie divorce, but also the wrath of some of her family members as her actions now threaten her family’s multi million-dollar empire!
“The family has split into two camps since the divorce – Kim and her mom versus the rest of the family, who are really angry at her,” an insider reveals. “Encouraged by her mom, Kris, Kim has become a fame-addicted, money-hungry monster. She has lost touch with reality.”
The insider adds that Khloe is furious with Kim as her divorce has now put the Kardashian empire, reportedly worth over $65 million, in jeopardy. In fact, the two reportedly got into a huge blowout during their recent visit to Australia.
“Khloe was mad because Kim was trying to look sad [about her divorce],” describes an onlooker. “She was telling Kim that people would see right through it, and Kim was only making things worse.” Things got so nasty between the sisters that they were later seen “swearing at each other.”
Following the public outcry, the Kardashians are now said to be in panic and are trying to do “damage control” so they don’t lose everything. “Divorcing Kris so soon after such an expensive wedding, done in front of TV cameras, could well be the kiss of death for the whole family’s career,” explains the insider.
Indeed, as a report by the Hollywood Reporter confirms the Kardashians’ fears which is that their empire is now in danger following Kim’s quickie divorce. Marketing experts are now stating Kim’s actions have damaged her brand identity and threaten to change the way the public and future employers view her.
“She’s completely betrayed the expectations of her brand, because she was a girl with ordinary values, ordinary hopes and dreams who happened to be very glamorous and exotic and happened to be living a very extraordinary life,” President and Brand Strategist at New York’s Truth Consulting, Linda Ong, tells The Hollywood Reporter. “Now, what she’s done is shown that she is as shallow as people like Paris Hilton and Lindsay Lohan and the train wrecks of Hollywood that we detest,” Ong continues. “She’s exposed herself as really not one of us, but someone who is the kind of person we thought she wasn’t.”
Another marketing expert Christine Kirk, CEO and founder of Social Muse Communications, also believes permanent damage has been done to the Kardashian brand.
“I think it’s more about revealing her desire, her hunger for continuing to grow this empire that she’s built,” states Kirk. “And I don’t necessarily think it’s shallowness, I think it’s getting caught up in maybe dollar signs and the overall potential that the wedding could have on her overall brand and her empire. And I think that she revealed that.”
Linda adds: “She was impulsive and flighty and naive or money hungry. I mean none of these things are good qualities.”
The media backlash doesn’t appear to be ending anytime soon (see, below) are there are three very unflattering magazine covers for Kimmie from this week’s tabloids.
As for Kimmie’s husband of 72 days, Kris Humphries, he now reportedly feels used by her. “Kris started to feel like a punching bag,” a friend tells Life and Style magazine. “He felt like the guy who got married to Kim on TV, not really her husband. He felt used.” Kris’ dad revealed earlier this week that his son was completely blindsided by the divorce filing and found out about it through the media.
As for Kimmie, she recently wrapped up filming in Atlanta for the new Tyler Perry movie and has also taken up tweeting again. When her little sister Kylie Jenner tweeted that “it’s always the people who know the least about you who want to judge you the most,” Kimmie responded: “What a wise little soul my baby sister.” Poor little rich Kimmie…

So what can we expect on the new season? MTV promises the dramatic season will follow the girls as they try to navigate their way through life with toddlers in tow. The new season will “take viewers on an intense rollercoaster of highs and lows. As their babies take their first steps, these young moms struggle to balance life, love, and independence while striving to give their children the best life possible.”
Below is what to expect from each cast member —
Leah – Mother to twin girls Alianna and Aleeah, and her daughters’ father, Corey Simms have weathered many ups and downs as a couple, from trust issues to doctor visits for understanding daughter Ali’s slow development. However just before the twins’ first birthday, Leah and Corey made the ultimate commitment by becoming husband and wife. But soon after the honeymoon they realize that marriage isn’t as easy as they’d hoped it would be.
Jenelle – She continues to reconcile the responsibilities of motherhood with her love of partying. With the birthfather of her son Jace out of the picture, Jenelle relies heavily on her mother Barbara Evans. The two’s explosive relationship is amplified by the fact that Barbara has temporary custody of Jace. Through it all, Jenelle struggles to prove herself as a mom and responsible adult, but her party girl ways — and her trouble-maker boyfriend, Kieffer — keep leading her down the wrong path. When Jenelle and Keiffer get arrested, she must choose between changing her ways or continuing on a downward spiral that could quickly hit rock bottom.
Chelsea – Chelsea’s life has been consumed with taking care of her daughter Aubree and trying, in vain, to make her tumultuous relationship with Aubree’s father, Adam Lind, succeed. She still hasn’t graduated from high school, but Chelsea luckily has a strong network of support from friends and family to help her on the road to independence. As her emotional tug-of-war with Adam escalates, she finally gets the strength to call it quits, trying to move forward and focus on what’s best for her and her daughter. Her friends and family just hope she can stay away from Adam for good this time.
Kailyn – Is the mom of baby Isaac. Kailyn and Isaac’s father Jo Rivera’s relationship crumbled under the stress of balancing their lives and raising their child, and Kailyn moved out amidst their constant fighting. A romance with coworker Jordan begins to get more serious as she turns to him for emotional support during a bitter custody battle with Jo. Through it all, Kailyn keeps two jobs and goes to school full time, determined to better her situation for her son while navigating her complicated relationship with Jo and struggling to finally move out on her own.
The new season premieres on MTV December 6 (10/9c).
In our chat with Jackie, she opens up about the drama involving her costars, the public perception that she’s the one stirring things up, her treatment of Draya Michele, whether she has any regrets about doing the show as well as her business endeavors (she is currently writing her fifth book). Below is our interview with Jackie —
Reality Tea: Hi Jackie, Why Did You Decide to do Basketball Wives?
Jackie: When the producers called me regarding the show I really felt comfortable and knew that it would be a good show, I also knew 2 of the girls prior to filming the show. Having been married for a very long time and having been with my husband Doug through his entire NBA career, I knew I had a lot I could offer the girls as far as experience knowledge and leadership and I’m grateful for having that opportunity to have shared so much with them all.
Reality Tea: How Do You Respond To The Criticism That You Are The One Stirring Things Up Amongst the Remainder of The Cast?
Jackie: That bothers me at times when people fail to realize that I was the one being talked about negatively in the beginning of our fall out, and discussed it with my cast mate who apologized and said she was kidding. But most people in my life that know me already know that I’m a very real and up front person. I believe communication is very important in any relationship, so trying to talk about it with the ladies was my motive but it was not received well. I just tell people when asked to watch the whole season before finalizing their judgment.
Reality Tea: How Hard Was It Being Confronted By Your Castmates On The Most Recent Episode In Hawaii and Ultimately Being Asked To Leave? Who Do You Think Is To Blame For All The Drama?
Jackie: It was bittersweet because I was a bit disappointed that the girls were not able to come clean and put all their issues on the table once and for all. Just be honest, then proceed to discuss those matters like adults but I did have my wonderful husband by my side after the drama, which meant the world to me. I was able to talk to him, and vent as he is my best friend and biggest supporter. He knows me thoroughly & totally understands my heart, and that I care for all my friends, even when they are wrong. With that being said, you will all have to stay tuned until the next episode to see how it all turns out.
Reality Tea: After Watching The Show, Do You Think You Received a Fair Edit?
Jackie: I do, because the editors are given footage and they proceed to then cut it to put the show together. Sometimes they may leave out a line or two or make it look one way when it was maybe different but I feel like they did a great job. I’m happy with the show and I feel like VH1 and Shed Media were awesome to work with.
Reality Tea: Do You Have Any Regrets About Doing The Show?
Jackie: No, I don’t have any regrets but I would rather the incidents with the other cast members would not have happened. I would have liked everyone to come clean and put all their cards on the table, but I have a big heart and forgive people easily.

After Sheree accused Nene of going behind her back to snag a hosting gig, Nene, who feels her castmates are jealous of her because of her fame, is now firing back in her latest Bravo blog, calling Sheree one of her biggest haters.
“Sheree made claims that were simply false! She has been one of my biggest haters, and I find that sad!” wrote the very, very rich Nene. “Of all the ladies, she has had the least success and her jealousy has reached an all-time high. So sad! Now I don’t want to spend too much time talking about someone that’s not even relevant, and I don’t owe anyone an explanation for the favor God has shown me in my life!”
Nene also defended her decision to buy her troubled 21-year-old son Bryson Bryant a car… with cash money… since she is now very rich… all due to her appearance on Celebrity Apprentice. If you recall, Bryson has been arrested a number of times on drugs and theft charges.
“My boys mean the world to me, and I want them to have better than I did. My son Bryson has made a few mistakes like any 21-year-old might. Sometimes good people make bad choices, but that doesn’t mean they’re bad! It means they are human. We went out to buy Bryson a car, which I was happy to do. I bought his car with cash money simply because I could!” wrote the Nene.
Sheree also blogged about the drama making it clear Nene did indeed try to jeopardize her hosting gig.
Sheree wrote: “To elaborate, NeNe called Tyrone several times complaining about him booking me for the amount I was being paid, all the while on speakerphone, obviously unbeknownst to her. She stated that since he knew her first, he should have booked me through her! She went on to say that he shouldn’t pay me the agreed upon rate, because she could have gotten me for a much lower rate, which would have created more money for her. She was saying that she should make the most out of all of us yada yada yada!”
Sheree continued, “Excuse me? You are getting the monetary amount you asked for. Why would you try to stop or get in the way of someone else? What’s the problem? Why would she feel the need to do this? Greed, envy, jealousy… This info comes from someone whom I’m very close to and I consider him to be one of my dear, loyal, and trustworthy friends, Charlie Mack. I was actually going to call him as well, but NeNe took off before I could! I wonder why? The funny thing is I felt that there could be some truth to what Charlie was saying, because I have experienced this type of undermining, manipulating behavior in the past from NeNe.”
Sheree goes on to make it clear she does not consider Nene to be a good person. “Bottom line it doesn’t matter what the dollar amount is, it’s the principle! If someone can smile in your face while stealing behind your back, that’s a conniving, evil person that I do not care to have around me… My mother always told me, ‘The people you look down upon on your way up will be the same people you look up to on your way down,'” added Sheree.
So the question is –

In Touch Weekly magazine is reporting Taylor Armstrongcontinues to hit rock bottom with her drinking. A friend of Taylor tells the mag that while she used to be a social drinker; she is now up to 20 drinks a day since the tragic suicide of her estranged husband Russell Armstrongback in August.
“She starts early in the morning,” says the pal. “She’s gone from wine to hard liquor. She’ll pretty much drink anything.” The pal adds that they are terrified Taylor’s becoming an “alcoholic.”
In fact, Taylor’s loved ones are reportedly considering an intervention. “She’s drinking away her pain and her grief,” the friend explains. “But she has a major problem and needs to come to terms with it.”
The mag, however, reports that Taylor is a long way from coming to terms with anything as she is said to be in denial about her issues. On a recent Friday night, Taylor was spotted stumbling out of the trendy Trousdale Lounge in LA, looking more like a trashed starlet than a 40-year-old mom.
Her wild behavior in addition to her scary skinny look now has her loved ones worried as they fear she won’t be able to care for her 5-year-old daughter Kennedy if she keeps going down this downward spiral.
Taylor is refusing to get the help she needs and is not listening to those who truly care about her reports the mag, instead choosing to hang out with enabling “drinking buddies” such as Most Eligible Dallas star Matt Nordgren, 28, who is described as her “new boyfriend.”
“He’s a partier, too, so they love to go out together,” the pal shares, adding, “Taylor’s acting like she’s in her twenties again.”
The pal adds that Taylor turns to alcohol to avoid her guilt, grief and ongoing money issues. And she doesn’t curtail her drinking even around her daughter. Yikes.
