Flipping Out Jeff Lewis

The fifth season of Flipping Out will premiere July 6 at 9/8c on the Bravo network.

The network made the announcement this week. “Flipping Out’ follows everyone’s favorite obsessive-compulsive house-flipper turned interior designer Jeff Lewis and his loyal staff at “Jeff Lewis Design.” Jeff spent most of last year getting the business up and running and this season he is faced with more work than he could have ever dreamed.

The entire crew is also back this season! Including Jeff’s trusty Executive Assistant, Jenni Pulos, his lovable housekeeper, Zoila Chavez, his assistant/sister-in-law, Sarah Berkman, the hot house assistant Jett Pink, and intern turned full-time employee, Trace Lehnhoff.

So what can we expect in season five? Well with clients all over the country, the stress level is at an all time high. But in true Jeff Lewis style, he balances an all-new group of quirky clients while still indulging in outrageous tangents – including planning a truly over-the-top birthday present for Zoila (a facelift!) and organizing a wild bachelorette party weekend in Vegas for his assistant Sarah. And while Jeff is more successful than ever this year, he’s still figuring out how to deal with the stress of it all.

We will also get an inside look into Jeff’s personal life as the usually guarded Jeff introduces everyone to his boyfriend Gage Edward. Gage is the head of Jeff’s new Business Development team.

A video sneak peek is below!


Real Housewives of New Jersey Season 3 Teresa GiudiceKathy Wakile

And on goes the drama off screen for the Real Housewives of New Jersey.

Teresa Giudice once again graces the cover of In Touch Weekly magazine, this time around under the heading “I’m Over It.” And Teresa, 39, isn’t really over the show, but more over her first cousin Kathy Wakile, 45, whom she feels has turned on her.

“Kathy’s trash-talking me,” Teresa complains. “Really, she’s kind of two-faced and she’s taken it to a whole other level. Everyone who watches the show will eventually see that side of her.”

Teresa goes on to reveal that she and Kathy were more like sisters than cousins growing up, and continued to be close, until Kathy switched her allegiance to her sister-in-law Melissa Gorga. “Kathy’s really tight with Melissa,” she notes.

Teresa adds that Kathy’s budding friendship with Melissa isn’t the only problem but that she also feels betrayed when Kathy allows her husband, Richie Wakile, to tease her. “He’s always on me, saying stupid stuff like, ‘How many times have you gone to the mall this week Teresa?’ He is very arrogant, and Kathy never sticks up for me.”

As for Kathy, she wrote in her Bravo blog recently: “[Richie] is a joker and likes to tease everyone. To quote my husband, he doesn’t give a ‘rat’s ass’ about how much Teresa spends.” Teresa goes on to add that she’s tired of being the punching bag for her relatives. “How can they treat me like this? I’m just over it!” she states. Seems like everyone else is the problem except for Teresa.

You can read more of Teresa’s interview in the current issue of In Touch Weekly.

Moving on to tonight’s all new episode of the NJ Housewives. On the 4th episode this season titled, “Gobblefellas,” the wives’ Thanksgiving is stuffed with drama, resentment and regret. Divisions mark Turkey Day when Teresa presides over a “friendsgiving” feast for only Jacqueline, Caroline and their families. Conversely, the Gorgas host a separate get-together with the Wakiles.

It airs at 9/8c. A preview clip is below –


Immediately following Kim Kardashian’s engagement two weeks ago to NBA beau Kris Humphries, she was also surprised with an engagement dinner!

According to Kim’s pimp momager Kris Jenner, Kris H., 26, consulted with her to help him plan an engagement dinner for Kim, 30. And thanks to Khloe Kardashian who posted the photos on her blog, we can now bring you all the photos from that magical night! Glitter horses and princess cakes included.

It appears the engagement news was also a surprise to Khloe. “None of us thought it would be any different from our usual family get-togethers,” Khloe, 26, blogs. “Kim walked in late (OF COURSE) and nonchalantly flashed that rock of hers and we all started screaming!”

Khloe adds, “It was such a happy night — so much love in the air. I know that sounds cheesy, but that’s the only way to explain it.” Photos from the engagement below!

Meanwhile, Kim continues to move full speed ahead with her beau of six months. As reported, they are planning to tie the knot in 2 months. TMZ is now reporting they are also working on a prenuptial agreement. Sources close to the couple reveal that both Kim and Kris feel “it’s the smart thing to do.”

And what is Kim’s net worth you ask? Well the one and only Kim Kardashian is reportedly worth $35 million! Wowzers. While Kris, who earns $3.2 mil a year with the New Jersey Nets, is worth an estimated $8 million. And to think this all began with a simple sex tape…


Basketball Wives Meeka
Following last week’s season 3 premiere of Basketball Wives which pretty much showed newbie Meeka Claxton, you know, sticking her nose into everyone’s business, she is now defending herself.

In a new interview, Meeka, who describes herself as a self-made real estate entrepreneur, does what all the other reality stars before her have done which is to of course blame editing.

When asked what she thought of the season premiere, Meeka states, “I mean, I watched it. And this is what I signed up for–it’s not me, the way I was portrayed, but it was entertaining.” She also says that she feels VH1 is portraying her falsely. “I was very surprised. A lot with Royce; it was all cut out that I said how nice she was, how bubbly she was. So, it’s funny how it started so innocently.”

So had Meeka seen the show before signing up for it? “I watched a few episodes before. But I was always in and out of New York and Atlanta, so I didn’t see every episode,” answered Meeka before going on to add that she doesn’t consider any of the ladies her friends. “I wouldn’t consider any of them friends. But I’m still getting to know them. It’s been such a short amount of time. And I didn’t go in there looking for friends. Its only been about two months, though.”

In other Basketball Wives news, the show continues to prove to be a ratings hit for the VH1 network. Last week’s premiere did pretty well, with over 1.8 million viewers tuning in. That is a 36% increase from last season’s premiere episode. As we reported, it appears VH1 is planning to extend the series with a new franchise in Los Angeles.

And finally, a new episode airs tonight on VH1 at 8/7c. Suzie’s return to the circle upsets Royce, and sparks fly when Tami takes Meeka to task for playing both sides. A preview clip is below –


Real Housewives of NY Kelly

Real Housewives of New York City star Kelly Bensimon is explaining her reasons for posing for Playboy magazine in a new interview.

The 43-year-old mother of 2 posed for Playboy back in March of last year, and according to Kelly, her reasons for posing include teaching her daughters and others about a good body image, while also getting sweet revenge on her mean costars.

“I showed like 80 percent. A little boobie, a little butt, ankles,” Kelly told Popeater. “The pictures actually make me look thinner than I was at the time. I really ate a lot. I wanted to be my normal body shape. I wanted to look like myself. Everyone else was on a diet and I was like, ‘No! I want to be myself.'”


Kelly then goes on to add that she also posed to teach her two young daughters, Sea Louis, 12, and Thaddeus Ann, 10, about a healthy body image plus to “be sexy and have fun” later on in their lives. “I think some people were wondering … I have two kids, isn’t that bad? But I think no; I want my kids to be happy and healthy and later on in their lives, be sexy and have fun. I don’t want them to think that having an eating disorder is cool, because it’s not!”

Reason #3? To exact revenge on her costars including Bethenny Frankel whom she believes bullied her on the RHONY. “I think the ladies were shocked by it,” revealed Kelly. “I think they thought, ‘We tried to take you down and now you are doing Playboy, what?! And now I have Playboy so they are like, ‘Wait a minute. This is not working!'”

Ah, nice to have the old cra-cra Kelly back.

Jersey Shore Italy

It’s official, the fourth season of the Jersey Shore will premiere on August 4!

While the cast continues to film in the city of Florence, Italy, MTV made the official announcement this weekend. The press release promises the cast will “bring their trademark hilarity, fist-pumping and family dysfunction to the beautiful country” of Italy.

It gets even better as MTV has also green-lighted a fifth season. Yes, the network also announced that Season five will begin production in June. Once filming ends in Italy, the entire cast will return to the surf and sand of Seaside Heights, New Jersey right away to begin filming.

TMZ is however reporting that the cast is currently unaware of MTV’s plans to start filming season five right away. The cast was under the impression they would get a one month break and start filming in August. In fact, most of them are booked for club appearances all through July.

Sources say the cast will NOT be happy once they hear the news as they would rather get a break from filming and make money doing club appearances. The sources also add that the cast could decide to band together and stage a revolt. Oh the horror.

What is certain is that the 4th season will be filled with drama. As we reported, the poster couple for dysfunctional relationships, Ronnie and Sammi, are once again back together and fighting. Ronnie and The Situation also got into a fist fight which left Ronnie with bleeding knuckles and The Sitch with a shiner on his face. Plus Snooki crashed into a cop car though she was left unhurt. Should be a fun season!


It appears new Atlanta housewife Marlo Hampton has an extensive criminal past.

We reported last week that Marlo had joined the Real Housewives of Atlanta series and was even photographed filming with the cast. And while it was mentioned that she had one arrest in her past for assaulting another female over a man, little was known that she had actually been arrested a total of 7 times that we know of!

The 35-year-old (DOB 02/07/1976) Tampa, FL native was first arrested on 05/26/1999 for Aggravated Battery causing bodily harm with a weapon. Following that arrest, it was all downhill for Marlo as she would later be arrested four more times for violating her probation alone.

And then came yet another arrest on 09/09/2002 for writing bad checks. Wowzers. Marlo issued a statement to Bossip this week acknowledging her criminal past while also stating it made her the “better woman” she is today. The statement is below –

“Let me first state that I am not ashamed of my past as that has helped me become a better woman today. We all have a past and my hard-knock childhood in and out of the Foster Care system is a reflection on a bigger issue we are faced with here in America, a broken Foster Care system. My present charge in life is to live with God in my heart and help young women especially from the foster care system avoid the challenges I faced. I’m more then just what is being said of me and I have a story to tell.”

Marlo, who is engaged to NFL player Charles Grant (rumored to be Nene Leakes‘ former fling), was reportedly brought on the show to stir up some drama with the Nene. Below, bigger images of Marlo’s mugshots plus more arrest details.

Lesson #1 – Do not go on a reality show if you have a minimum of 7 arrests in your past.
