According to the Hollywood Life blog, Kendra went through screaming matches with Hank to self-confidence issues to mood swings. In fact, she even got so jealous of her nanny at one point that she fired her, wanting to take on all of her mommy duties herself.
But Kendra didn’t hit rock bottom until she became so emotionally detached from her husband and their son Hank Jr. that she actually started to contemplate suicide. Kendra however reveals she was able to fight through those thoughts, adding that she would never actually do something to hurt herself or her family.
In addition to her new book, the fourth season of her E! showKendra is also slated to premiere Sep. 25.

Brendon, who was voted back into the house by America, was ultimately backdoored by Danielle who was also responsible for his first ousting. In a new interview with Digital Spy, Brendon discusses what it felt like to return to the BB house, the players he thinks are floaters, and whether or not he feels Danielle is playing a smart game. Excerpts are below –
Having just come back in the house last week, how much tougher was it to leave this week in comparison to the first time around? “Sadly, it was probably easier to leave the second time because I felt more comfortable leaving Rachel in the house. It was just more frustrating because I didn’t have a chance to compete for the Power of Veto.”
Where do you think things went wrong with the veteran alliance? “Daniele turned on us way too soon and wanted the glory all for herself.”
During your final speech you spoke a lot about the floaters left in the game. Who in particular do you feel isn’t pulling his or her weight? “Porsche, Shelly and Jordan are definitely at the top of the list followed [closely] by Kalia and Adam.”
Do you believe that Rachel really has a chance to win even though she’s up against a whole house of people who want her out? “I think that Rachel making it to the final two is more improbable than not, but I have no doubt that she will spend every remaining moment in the house fighting as hard as she can.”
You attempted to make a deal with Daniele, which she seemed to accept. Did you have faith in that arrangement or did you always assume she might back out of it? “I always thought in the back of my head that if Daniele had the chance to get rid of me she would. I knew that she was always afraid that if I was up on the block that I would be able to win the Power of Veto and be able to pull myself off.”
Besides Rachel, who do you think is playing a smart game in the house? “I think Daniele is playing a smart game by keeping herself in the middle as much as she can, but she is naive to think that she is not the biggest target in the house as soon as I left.”
In other Big Brother news, Will Kirby, one of the best players to play the game?, is now engaged to his long-term girlfriend!
Will, winner of Big Brother season 2, confirmed his engagement to girlfriend of six years and mother of his 15-month-old son, Erin Brodie (For Love or Money winner). “I’m so fortunate to be in a relationship with Erin,” Will told PEOPLE. “I’m thrilled to now open the next chapter of our lives together.”
Moving on to tonight’s episode of Big Brother in which either Danielle or Kalia will be sent packing. It’s not looking too good for Danielle, who was backdoored by Jeff this week. The live eviction episode airs tonight at 9/8c. And oh yeah, tonight is also a double live eviction! The HGs are not aware of this as they suspect this will happen next week.

After going from a nobody to a fairly famous reality star in a span of less than 2 years, it appears Jersey Shorestar DJ Pauly D now feels he is really famous!
Just how famous you ask? Well according to him, too famous to do Dancing With The Stars! Wowzers. The Huffington Post interviewed Pauly D, during which he pretty much dissed the ABC hit show, implying it is for has-beens. He does have a point no?
Citing that he has a hot career as a DJ, which brings him over $10,000 per gig, Pauly D, 31, (yes he’s really 31-years-old) stated: “I will do ‘Dancing with the Stars’ when my career dips.” Ouch.
The topic then turned to his costar Snookiand the talks that she had signed on to do the show. “I texted her congratulations about doing ‘Dancing,’ but she texted back ‘am I?'” Pauly D revealed.
In fact, new reports are now stating the Snooks, 23, will NOT be appearing on the show after TMZ prematurely confirmed she had signed on for the new season.
There had been rumors that Snooki wanted more money, but a report by the Hollywood Life blog states the Snooks was simply too busy to do the show. Not sure how this bodes for the so called celebs on the show if Snooki has a busier career than they do.
“They have finalized this seasons cast andSnooki will unfortunately not be doing this season of Dancing With The Stars,”a source stated. “There is no drama between producers and Snooki. She just won’t be available to appear on the show. There is still hope they can get her in a future season though.”
A new episode of the Jersey Shore airs tonight on MTV at 10/9c.

According to a new report by RadarOnline, the couple’s once lucrative Virginia Oasis Winery is now scheduled to be auctioned off due to bankruptcy.
An online Virginia auction calendar has the Salahi’s winery, Oasis Vineyards, listed for auction on September 18 by order of the U.S. Bankruptcy Court.
Assets to be liquidated will include items such as: 60+ Oak Barrels, DeFraneschi Grape Press, Ice Machine, Dish Washer, approximately 5,000 bottles of Sparkling Wine, 100 cases of Cabernet, amongst other items.
And just a month ago, the Salahis were sued for fraud by a woman who claimed she was defrauded out of the money she paid to tour Virginia’s Wine Country.
In the meantime, TMZ reported last week that the Salahis have taken their famewhoring ways to Beverly Hills by moving there. Can they afford to live there? It gets even better as the Salahis reportedly had their manager contact Bravo to see about getting them on the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. But fret not, as they were flat out rejected by Bravo! Andy Cohen is said to have replied, “We are not interested.”
Michaele, who might or might not have TMZ on speed dial, also told the site that at age 45, she is now trying to have a baby with husband Tareq.
She revealed the plan is to go with a surrogate because she suffers from “multiple sclerosis.” She apparently feels that her “condition” combined with her age is not safe for a baby. Where’s the Captain Obvious cap when you need it?

PEOPLE magazine has released the officialKim Kardashian cover for her wedding issue!
PEOPLE, which reportedly paid a now estimated $1.5 million for the exclusive pics of Kimmie’s wedding, made a curious decision to exclude Kimmie’s husband Kris Kardashian Humphries from the cover. A bit of an unusual move. Perhaps the mag feels they will move more copies with just Kimmie. They gotta recoup that $1.5 mil somehow!
“It was like we were in heaven,” Kimmie tells PEOPLE. Mr. Kardashian adds: “I’m going to remember how perfect it was.”
Kim, 30, who wore a custom-designed Vera Wang ball gown (she wore a total of 3 Vera Wang gowns for her big day), reveals she “felt like a princess.” She however adds, “Glam aside, that wasn’t our main goal. It was really about our family and each other.” Well family and each other alongside the E! camera crew and the reporters.
In fact UsWeekly, which reported yesterday that the wedding was “awkward” due to all the camera crews, is now reporting today that Kris’ family “looked appalled” during the made for TV nuptials.
“It was so hard to take it all seriously,” says a guest. Another insider adds that Kimmie even told guests repeatedly: “This is our version of the royal wedding!” Wowzers.
A pal adds: “Everybody felt awkward, like it was all for the cameras and more like a TV show than a wedding.” And while Kris’ family “mostly looked appalled by the entire thing,” they reportedly “cheered when Kim and Kris were pronounced husband and wife.”
The new issue of PEOPLE hits newsstands Friday while the E! network will air “Kim’s Fairytale Wedding: A Kardashian Event” on October 9 and 10, 2011. Below is a photo of Kimmie in her Vera Wang reception dress!
TELL US – ARE KIMMIE’S WEDDING PHOTOS WORTH $1.5 MIL? SURPRISED KRIS’ FAMILY LOOKED APPALLED?
UPDATE – PEOPLE magazine’s assistant editor, Jen Garcia, defended the decision to axe Kris from the cover. Jen told Access Hollywood Live on Wednesday morning: “It’s all about the bride. We wanted her. It’s her day, we wanted her on the cover. He’s got a little height on her. It’s kind of tough to get them in the (same) shot.”
As we reported weeks ago, Bravo is currently filming season 4 of the RHONJ while the 3rd season is still on the air. A rarity for a Housewives series.
Well the Rumor Fix blog is now reporting that Jacqueline is filming her final scenes for Bravo.“It is confirmed that Jacqueline Laurita is now filming her LAST season of the Real Housewives of New Jersey,” states the blog.
“Jacqueline’s six-year contract is still in full force and effect and she is now filming limited scenes for Season Four but she does not want to return for Season Five. She just wants to have her normal life back and she’s hoping that Bravo will allow her to break her contract for the remaining two seasons,” adds the Rumor Fix.
Jacqueline, 41, didn’t help matters when she tweeted days ago, “I’m thinking I’d like 2 go back 2 being a normal family.I miss those days.I’d like us all to focus on positive things & positive people.”
Perhaps she’s over the drama with daughter Ashley Holmes and all the backlash. It has also been rumored that Ashley is barely filming for the new season as Jacqueline and hubby Chris Lauritakicked her out of their home. Ashley, who wants to move to California, is reportedly living in Texas at the moment. And let’s face it, while Jacqueline’s very likable, she’s mostly drama free on the show and doesn’t seem to have much of a storyline without Ashley.
Another factor could be wanting her privacy back. Just days after Ashley’s dad, Matt Holmes, appeared on the show, his arrest for arson, insurance fraud, and money laundering quickly made headlines. Only time will tell if Jacqueline is indeed leaving the show a la Dina Manzo. Jacqueline’s reported exit might also explain her recent blog in which she completely calls out her BFF Teresa Giudice.

UPDATE – According to Ashley’s twitter, she moved to LA yesterday. Ashley tweeted yesterday, “I’m moving to LA today!” later adding, “Been here for a total of 10minutes and i already LOVE my new home! #LA !!!!”
Ashley also wrote on her Celebuzz blog, “I have an internship waiting there for me with Buzznet & Celebuzz. I recently formed my own LLC. I’m currently working on my own clothing line that I hope to launch by 2012. I am working on building my own website, that will also be up and running soon. I am also writing a book. I think the content of the book is going to surprise a lot of people, no one REALLY knows me the way they think they do.”
Here’s to hoping she has her finances in order because in the words of Caroline Manzo, “You don’t want to hit rock bottom in California.”
Bachelor insider Reality Steve broke the news on his blog, even stating Ben had began to film scenes for the new season.
Ben, who was the runner-up on Ashley Hebert‘s season of the Bachelorette, had been longed rumored to be in the running for the Bachelor alongside Ryan Park and Ames Brown. However following the finale episode, fans made it clear they wanted Ben to be the next Bachelor.
According to RS, the 28-year-old winemaker from Sonoma, Calif., was spotted filming some solo scenes in San Francisco on Aug. 22.
He will reportedly start filming his season (with his contestants) in mid-September with ABC likely to start airing it next January.
And speaking of Ashley, she is still going strong with her fiance J.P. Rosenbaumweeks after her season ended! That has to be equivalent to 3 years in Bachelor franchise years. In fact, Ashley was photographed moving into JP’s NYC apartment just days ago.
“@JP_Rosenbaum is going to kill me when he sees how much clothing I have!! #newyorkaptsneedmoreclosetspace.” tweeted Ashley. JP replied, “@ashhebert all I can say is thank god we r getting a bigger place!” Ashley also tweeted the photo below of the two out and about days ago. Perhaps these two might actually make it. Perhaps.
