Upon deciding on the perfect piece for Kennedy, the jewelers convince Taylor to buy some pieces for the 25 girls that will be in attendance and she obliges.
Following the failure of Sheree Whitfield’sShe by Sheree, it seems a new Bravo housewife is ready to give the whole clothing line thingy a shot as well.

The latest issue of Life & Style magazine headlines ‘Kendra – Why I Left Hank,’ but fret not, it’s not what you think.
Kendra Wilkinson, star of E! network’s Kendra, opens up to the magazine about the hardship of being away from her NFL husbandHank Baskettas she decided to move to LA with their 11-month-old son while he remains in Minnesota playing football.
“Hank’s not going to be there forever, but with him not physically here, I’m a single parent now,” Kendra tells Life & Style. Surely Hank would be happy to hear his wife refer to herself as a “single parent.”
Kendra adds that the hardest part of being away from Hank, 28, is knowing that he will be missing out on some quality time with their son. “The hardest part for sure, though, is Hank missing the baby’s milestones,” she says though adding that Hank has yet to miss out on any important milestones as baby Hank hasn’t started walking.
Kendra, 25, makes it clear that she is having trouble adjusting to being without Hank. “I miss little things like waking up next to him every morning. He sings to me every morning — what guy does that? Hank is just an all-around man,” Kendra gushes. “He knows how to cook a good steak, so I’ll miss his steaks for the next couple of months. I’m going to miss crying to him, taking showers together and getting deep-tissue massages. Just everything.”
Allrighty, the new season of Kendra premieres Sunday, November 7 on the E! network.
According to TVGuide, SWTS‘s casting director Deena Katz is not happy about a few reports that started floating around some blogs following the cast announcement.
What reports would that be might you ask? Well, some reports magically appeared on some blogs claiming that Real Housewives of NYC star Jill passed on doing the show which led to SWTS asking her former co-star Bethenny.
“That’s the part I don’t like,” says Deena. “You weren’t asked, so don’t act like you were.” While Jill’s reps declined to comment on the story, Deena added that Bethenny was cast because “she is it. If you’re going to go with a Housewife Bethenny has transcended all the other housewives. She has her own show [Bethenny Getting Married?]. She is her own person.”
Deena makes it clear that she never asked another housewife, stating “Bethenny is the only one I asked.”
As for Jill, she took some time out of her busy schedule to wish Bethenny the best of luck. “Congrats to @Bethenny for skating with stars. If anyone can do it you can! And happy birthday,” posted Jill the early morning of Nov 3rd. By the way, Bethenny’s birthday is Nov 4th. She turned 40-years-old yesterday.

According to TMZ, Sheree had her Aston Martin car seized over the weekend. And yes, we are just as shocked as you are that Sheree drives an Aston Martin.
As for the reason, it all has to do with the $110,000 Sheree owes her attorneys. The same attorneys that helped her with her divorce. If you recall, Sheree’s attorney’s sued her and won a judgement for $110,000, the amount she owes.
Sheree has however refused to pay up despite the court settlement so the crafty attorneys had the local sheriff’s department seize Sheree’s car over the weekend.
Sheree, 40, however seems to be taking things in stride telling TMZ, “It’s okay, it’s a car, I’ll get another one.” Sheree also tells TMZ she things the ruling is unfair.
It has been reported that the Atlanta housewives each received a $150,000 salary from Bravo for their 3rd season of the hit show. Just in case you’re wondering, Aston Martin vehicles cost anywhere from $120,000 to $280,000.
So much for those rumors of Bristol Palin getting a spin-off reality show with one of MTV’s Teen Mom stars, as a new report reveals she doesn’t even want them anywhere around her!
According to Popeater, Bristol has informed the producers of Dancing With The Stars that she doesn’t want Maci Bookout, Farrah Abraham and other Teen mom stars in the audience cheering her on. Why? Apparently the “Teen Activist” is trying to move away from the whole I’m famous solely due to my famous mom and getting knocked up as teen image, and trying to become a more legit celebrity.
“Bristol Palin has made it very clear to the show producers that she doesn’t want the teen moms in the audience cheering her on no matter how much it might boost ratings,” an ABC executive tells Popeater.
The insiders add that even though Bristol has done events with Teen Mom stars Maci and Farrah in the past, she sees DWTS as a way for her to look beyond her past.
“Bristol has hit the restart button on this show,” says the insider. “We no longer think of her as Sarah Palin’s daughter or that young girl who had a baby with Levi as a teen, but rather as a young lady trying hard to win a competition.”
In other Bristol news, the 20-year-old is admitting to Inside Edition that she forgot to vote in the recent mid-term elections. “I did not send in my absentee ballots to Alaska,” Bristol, 20, said. “I’m going to be in trouble. Sorry mom!”
