The Real Housewives of New Jersey Season 3

They’re baaaack!

Bravo has just released the first preview of the Real Housewives of New Jersey season four, and boy oh boy, it might just be the most dramatic yet!

Yes, we’ve spent the last few months reading all about the drama, but folks, seeing it in motion is tres better! Returning for the new season are all of the season three housewives: Teresa Giudice, Melissa Gorga, Caroline Manzo, Jacqueline Laurita and Kathy Wakile.

The press release promises: “Season four breaks down the walls to reveal the truth behind all the tabloid rumors. From Jacqueline’s absence at the season three reunion to accusations of Melissa’s past and the fallout from Teresa’s cookbook, the ladies are determined to set the record straight.”

In the over 2-minute clip below, it’s pretty much all the housewives vs. Teresa! We see Teresa apologizing to Caroline for one of the million things she has done to wrong her with Caroline responding: “I can’t even look at you.” In a separate scene, Jacqueline tells Teresa “F**k you.”

We also see the ladies at the now infamous Porsche fashion show, during which a man, presumably Melissa’s former strip club manager (she was a waitress there), comes to her table to approach her.

The biggest blowout, however, comes between sisters-in-law Melissa and Tre! In one scene, the two almost come to blows as Melissa tells Teresa: “Run away coward like you always do when you’re wrong.” Oddly enough, Kathy is hardly shown in the preview.

The new season premieres Sunday, April 22 at 11/10c on Bravo. The preview clip is below!

While many fans of Teen Mom are still in shock over MTV’s announcement that the 4th season will be the last, the cast members are reportedly feeling “relieved” that their show is going off the air.

Days after MTV announced the ending of the original Teen Mom series, UsWeekly is reporting the cast–Maci Bookout, 20, Amber Portwood, 21, Farrah Abraham, 20, and Catelynn Lowell, 19who’ve been on the network since their 2009 appearance on 16 and Pregnant, couldn’t be happier about the news.

“They’re relieved,” a source reveals. “It helped all of them, being on the show, but they’re all ready to move onto other things without the cameras always around.”

We’ll see how long that feeling lasts once the MTV money dries up and they realize they have to get real 9 – 5s like us regular folks!

The final season featuring the original Teen Mom cast is expected to air this summer on MTV.

Moving on to Teen Mom 2 hotmess star, Jenelle Evans, who is apparently taking a break from getting tattoos she’s sure to regret, is now getting breast implants! A source close to the troubled MTV star tells E! News that viewers can expect to see her with her two new friends when the next season of Teen Mom 2 premieres.

“She got tired of having small breasts. Jenelle decided on a full ‘C’ cup because she does not want to go too big,” the source tells E!. “Jenelle has already had a consultation with a cosmetic surgeon. Her mom went along to the consultation to show her support. They are getting along much better now,” the source adds.

And how does Jenelle’s current squeeze Gary Head feel about her decision? “Gary is all for it,” says the source, adding that he “supports her decision.” How romantical.

Jenelle also took to her Twitter page this week to announce that charges filed against her by former roommate Hannah Inman for alleged threats and harassment have been dropped.

Jenelle tweeted: “COURT IS OVER WITH CHARGES WERE DROPPED WITH THE HANNAH CASE. 🙂 she dropped them.”  Unfortunately for Jenelle, the cyber stalking charges leveled against her by her former boss James Duffy are still ongoing.

The Bravo network definitely has a way with shows as their latest hit series Shahs of Sunset is already stirring up some controversy!

The Ryan Seacrest produced show (no I haven’t forgiven him for giving us the Kardashians either), which follows a group of wealthy persians living in Beverly Hills, has received some backlash from the Iranian community, with some creating petitions to have the show pulled, complaining that it perpetuates stereotypes.

One person firing back at the backlash is however the openly gay cast member Reza Farahan who tells the Hollywood Reporter: “The Persians that are complaining now, they would be complaining no matter what… If we were all tall, they’d say, ‘You’re too tall.’ If we were all short, they’d say, ‘Oh, they’re all short, they don’t represent us.’ You can’t make everyone happy, and I’m not trying to.”

Valid point. Also speaking out is controversial castmember Golnesa “GG” Gharachedaghi. GG took some time off from hating ugly people her schedule to give an interview to Bravotv.com. In the interview, GG opens up about her relationship with Mike Shouhed (they should just do it and get it over with no?), her fight with Anita in Las Vegas and getting the cold shoulder from her castmates afterwards.

Below are excerpts from GG’s interview

Bravotv.com: Talk to us about your relationship with Mike.
Golnesa “GG” Gharachedaghi: Mike and I have known each other over 15 years, and he was always like a big brother figure for me. He and I are both naturally very flirtatious, so it always gets a little interesting when we’re around each other. The most common ground we share is that we both love each other and will always be there for each other. . .no matter what the title of our relationship is. I won’t say much, but soon enough everybody will see for themselves how it plays out between us.

Bravotv.com: Tell us some more about Chris.
GG: Chris and I have known each other for a very long time. I could definitely say there was a point in our lives where we were interested in more (like a relationship) but we’re very, very different from each other. I will always hold a big place in my heart for him because he’s a very special person to me. But at this moment in my life, it’s not going to be more than a friendship and maybe playtime (wink wink) when I go to Vegas. LOL!

Bravotv.com: Can you give us some back story on you and Anita? Why did you have a problem with her?
GG: I genuinely never had a problem with Anita. Some people have thicker skin than others. I guess this is why I’ve always had guy friends — because girls get too emotionally involved when they hear things. I genuinely do like Anita, and I think she’s a beautiful woman. I never meant to hurt her feelings. But if you get in my face, be prepared for me to possibly bite. I gave her plenty of chances to lower her voice or walk away and talk to me calmly, but she went forth. . .as did I.

Bravotv.com: Why did you decide to leave the dinner after the fight?
GG: Being at the dinner table was very difficult for me. The showdown at the pool was very intense and I was feeling an overwhelming sense of exhaustion from all the emotions. I was going above and beyond to get a hold of Anita before dinner so we could talk it out. But she wouldn’t answer and it made me more frustrated. I had no idea that when I walked up to the dinner table that I was going to feel so hated and left out. People see me as the one who gets feisty and I get quite ghetto at times. But I never react for no reason. So I felt nobody cared to understand that about me. Nobody cared to ask if I was OK. I was singled out, so it was best for me to just remove myself from the dinner table because I didn’t want anyone seeing me cry.

Bravotv.com: Can you give us a preview of what happens next?
GG: As you’ve seen in the previews, I pack up and leave Vegas with no trace left behind. You’ll see what happens when the rest get back to LA and the confrontations on “who was the real s–t starter” will begin. Will there be resolution? Will there be more fights? You better watch to find out.

Must say I wasn’t expecting to like this show as much as I did. So many questions, so little time but I’ll give it a go! Seriously, where does Bravo find these characters? Is Sammy really a “Playboy”? Doesn’t GG kind of remind you of a poor man’s Aishwarya Rai? Doesn’t MJ’s mom deserve her own spinoff? Why does Reza insist on having that 80s porn star mustache?

Nonetheless an entertaining show all around. It will be interesting to see what happens between GG and Mike as there definitely does seem to be “something” there!

According to TMZ, Jersey Shore star The Situation has entered rehab.

Sources tell the site that The Sitch a.k.a. Mike Sorrentino, 29, has spent the last couple of weeks quietly getting treatment for a substance abuse problem.

The Situation’s substance abuse issues doesn’t come as much of a surprise, as there have been widespread rumors that he had both a drinking and drug (cocaine) problem. Add in the fact that he earns $15K to $50K to make club appearances and party around the world–something he has done for the past 2 years–and you get a recipe for disaster.

TMZ points out Mike’s odd behavior on some episodes this season, including the camping trip, during which he can be seen acting jittery, sweating profusely and acting bizarre. Sources add that he was “acting paranoid” during the filming of the last season.

However, Mike’s rep is not confirming the news, only issuing a non-denial denial in the form of this statement:  Mike “has spent the past several weeks at an undisclosed location for much needed rest and recuperation after his extensive production and appearance schedule.”

MTV and The Sitch’s costars are reportedly happy that he is getting help and hope he’ll be well in time to start filming season 6, which MTV just announced this week.

Mike is pictured above on February 13 in one of his last public appearances.

Kim Zolciak’s psychic strikes again! Less than a year after giving birth to her son, Kim Zolciak is pregnant once again!

The Real Housewives of Atlanta star is confirming to Life & Style magazine that she is expecting her second child with NFL husband Kroy Biermann.

“Kroy and I are so excited,” Kim, 33, states. “To decide we wanted to get pregnant again and have it happen so quickly was such a blessing.”

Even more surprising, is how Kim, who is four months along, managed to keep this a secret. “People are going to be shocked, because nobody knows,” says Kim, who reveals she has yet to find out the sex of the baby. “I’m so excited that KJ will have a little buddy,” she adds.

Well, if we’re going by the prediction of Kim’s psychic, Rose, it’s safe to assume Kim will be having a girl! Rose not only predicted she would have a son, before she even met Kroy, but during another visit with Kim this season, she predicted Kim would be having another little girl.

Kim and Kroy tied the knot last November, months after welcoming their first child, son Kroy Jagger (KJ) Jr., in May. Kim has two daughters–Brielle, 15, and Ariana, 9–from a previous marriage and relationship.

Even better for the Biermanns, Kroy, 26, recently signed a $10 million contract renewal with his NFL team, the Atlanta Falcons. You can read more about Kim’s pregnancy in the upcoming issue of Life & Style magazine, out on newsstands tomorrow.

Bravo announced last week that Kim and Kroy’s spinoff series, Don’t Be Tardy For The Wedding, will premiere April 26 at 9 p.m.

UPDATE – Star Magazine is reporting that Kim is expecting a baby boy! “They’re so excited because Kim already had two girls and now that she’s having a second son, the family will be balanced out with two of each,” a source tells the mag.

If Real Housewives of Beverly Hills extra star Dana Wilkey returns next season, fans will not get to see her plan her wedding, as she is no longer engaged.

Dana is confirming to Life & Style magazine that she has ended her engagement with fiancé and beau of six years, businessman John Flynn.

“My fiancé and I have decided to go our separate ways,” Dana, 38, confirms to Life & Style. “We realized that we’ve become more friends than romantic partners,” she says. “It’s better for us to break up and concentrate on our son right now.”

Dana and John have a 2-year-old son named John. Bravo has yet to announce whether Dana will be returning next season, though it seems highly unlikely as she did nothing but kiss butt simply failed to bring any drama to the series.

Just last November, both Dana and John were sued by a Los Angeles woman who alleged they defrauded her out of $53,000.

BRANDI GLANVILLE AND DANA WILKEY GET INTO TWITTER WAR!

In other RHOBH news, weeks after she was photographed looking at office spaces in Beverly Hills, more details are now coming out about Kyle Richards planned business endeavor!

According to the Rumor Fix blog, Kyle, 43, is planning to open up a women’s fashion boutique. Even more interesting, Kyle’s boutique will reportedly be three doors down from her former BFF Lisa Vanderpump’s Villa Blanca restaurant. Here’s to hoping Kyle has a more fashionable business partner to help her out!

And finally, Adrienne Maloof recently spoke to OK! magazine, during which, she revealed she will be attending the wedding of pop star Britney Spears!

What is the connection you ask? Adrienne explains that Britney’s dad Jamie Spears “used to be our chef. We are very close to him.”

Adrienne adds, “We have had a long relationship with the Spears family. Her mom, too. Both her mom and her are lovely and is a great mom. She is just so sweet.”

As reported last week, Bravo has yet to offer the RHOBH cast their season 3 contracts, though filming is expected to begin this Spring.

The new season of Dancing With The Stars premiered last night on ABC, in what is now being called the best season opener ever!

The reason? Let’s just say all the c-list celebs scored pretty high as the lowest score of the night was a 20. “Without a doubt, this is the best first show of any season,” said judge Len Goodman after the performances.

There was a tie for first place as Katherine Jenkins and Urkel Jaleel White both earned a remarkable 26 points, which included a pair of nines for each. Katherine, a British opera singer, danced the fox-trot with partner Mark Ballas, while actor Jaleel received compliments from the judges, also for his fox-trot with partner Kym Johnson.

In second place was hotness William Levy–aka The Cuban Brad Pitt–receiving a score of 24 for his sexy cha-cha dance with partner Cheryl Burke. William not only received praises from the judges, but also had the audience going wild! Judge Bruno Tonioli called the duo “the hottest package of the season.”

There was a three-way tie for last place with Melissa Gilbert, Gavin DeGraw, and Martina Navratilova all receiving a score of 20! Still pretty impressive considering they’ve only been dancing for a few weeks.

The good news is that all the 12 “stars” will get to return next Monday night and perform new dances. The first elimination will then take place next Tuesday.

The full scores from last night are below –

Katherine Jenkins & Mark Ballas – 26
Jaleel White & Kym Johnson – 26
William Levy & Cheryl Burke – 24
Gladys Knight & Tristan MacManus – 23
Jack Wagner & Anna Trebunskaya – 23
Sherri Shepherd & Val Chmerkovskiy – 23
Roshon Fegan & Chelsie Hightower – 23
Maria Menounos & Derek Hough – 21
Donald Driver & Peta Murgatroyd – 21
Melissa Gilbert & Maks Chmerkovskiy – 20
Gavin DeGraw & Karina Smirnoff – 20
Martina Navratilova & Tony Dovolani – 20

According to MTV, their mega hit show Jersey Shore will be back for a sixth season!

Even better, the entire cast, including a pregnant Snooki, are all set to return.

“America’s favorite housemates will all return to their home-away-from-home, and the house dynamic is headed into unchartered territory… as their lives outside the “Shore” take off in exciting new directions,” said MTV in a press release. “While things will definitely be a little different this time when they hit the boardwalk, their trademark hilarity and family dysfunction will remain the same.”

Filming on the new season is set to begin this summer in Seaside Heights, NJ, when the Snooks will be in her third trimester.

This news is a bit surprising, as Snooki, 24, recently stated she did not want to live in the shore house while pregnant. “I’m not living in that house being pregnant. I don’t want to be one of those moms who’s pregnant in a club. It’s disgusting,” said Snooki to UsWeekly earlier this month.

It will definitely be interesting to see how MTV decides to handle Snooki’s pregnancy.
