The Real Housewives of New York City 3

There seems to be a recurring theme with this season’s the Real Housewives of New York City, every episode seems to bring us some new Jill vs. Bethenny drama, and tonight will be no different.

First, we will see Kelly awkwardly attempt to photograph random people on the streets of NYC that she deems fashionable for an article she’s writing for Gotham Magazine. On the other side of town, LuAnn remains close with Jill, who is quickly becoming this season’s villain, when she stays as a house guest at Jill’s house. The hot topic of discussion is Bethenny and Kelly’s new-found truce.

Bethenny learns that her father, who is now deceased, is very sick, leading Alex to pull out all the stops to make Jill aware and help repair their fractured friendship. Bethenny then makes a desperate last ditch attempt to talk to Jill face-to-face, which will ofcourse lead to another blow up. A video preview is below.

In other NYC news, The DailyBeast did a new interview with Jill Zarin, during which she made a rather interesting comment about Bravo wanting the housewives to create some drama, or else risk leaving the show. “We were told, in no uncertain terms—and I wouldn’t say it’s affected me, but it’s affected some of the other girls—that if they didn’t bring it on, they wouldn’t be holding an apple,” said Jill, referring to the promo shot that shows each Housewife holding an apple. “There was a lot of pressure to bring on drama—this coming off New Jersey and Atlanta.” Jill however made it clear no part of the show is scripted.

Andy Cohen, Bravo’s senior vice president of original programming, responded to Jill’s comments with the following, “We cast outgoing people who we know are going to be fun to watch. We never tell people what to do or say—we just want people to be themselves. The women who ‘hold the apple’ are all outgoing, driven women, which is why they are on the show in the first place. All the drama you see is real and completely brought on by their own personal interactions with each other—you can’t make this stuff up!”

Jill might have a point. After all, DeShawn Snow was fired from the Real Housewives of Atlanta for not being dramatic enough. Interestingly though, Jill’s comments bear a striking similarity to what a show “source” revealed to the NYDailyNews back in February about Alex and Simon. The article claimed Alex and Simon would be getting the axe from the show next season because they were boring. The source also claimed, “In the upcoming season, Alex picks a lot of fights, and it looks like it’s an attempt to keep her story line relevant,” the insider says. “But it ended up seeming inauthentic.”

The NYDailyNews is the same publication that published the Bethenny friendless story that Bethenny accused Jill of planting in the last episode . Simon also blogged last week that he suspected Jill was behind he and Alex’s story. He might have a point…

Kate Gosselin Pic

Get ready to see a whole lot more of Kate Gosselin! TLC has announced today that the former Jon & Kate Plus 8 mom will not only be starring in one, but rather two reality shows this year.

Kate, who is currently tanking on Dancing With The Stars, will headline her own show, Twist of Kate, on TLC.

According to the network, Twist of Kate, set to debut this summer, will be a 12-episode series that will feature Kate responding to fan letters from those who are inspired by her story as a way to profile the personal challenges her fans face. Kate will then travel the country to meet her fans’ families and to try their jobs.

“I look at it as a loose concept,” Kate, 35, told USA Today about her new show. “I want to be out there learning from others, helping to provide insight whenever I can, though I don’t consider myself an expert on anything.”

On to reality show number two, thanks to the settlement TLC was able to reach with Jon Gosselin earlier this year, Kate Plus 8 will also be making it’s debut this year. If you recall, Jon & Kate Plus 8 was canceled last year after Jon declared he had an epiphany and no longer wanted his kids to be filmed anymore.

The Kate Plus 8 series will be in the form of specials focusing on her new life as a single mom to her eight children.

Jon has also made headlines as he filed a motion this week in an attempt to gain primary custody of his eight children. His lawyer revealed earlier this week that he is having to pay Kate $22,000 a month in child support. He is accusing Kate of being an absentee mother due to her DWTS gig. There are also rumblings that Jon is going broke, which might explain a motive for taking Kate to court.

Tamra Barney Duzoxin

“A lie is a lie is a lie is a lie,” was one of Tamra Barney’s favorite quotes on the last season of the Real Housewives of Orange County. Interesting quote considering that’s what she’s been doing all year.

First the OC mom lied about her relationship with new beau Eddie Judge, you can read all about that here. And now she has chosen to lie about her affiliation and usage of weight loss drug, Duzoxin.

A reader emailed us a conversation Tamra had with a friend on her facebook page, during which which she denied taking the weight loss drug, and even denied having anything to do with the company.  A quick check to Tamra’s facebook two days ago showed the conversation. She seems to have now deleted it from her page. The coversation is below -

Christi -  Tamra. Does Duzoxin really work? Does it make you feel like your loaded on caffeine or is it an even energy and metabolism heightner?2 hours ago ·
Tamra Barney I do not take it… I have nothing to do with that company
2 hours ago ·
Christi -  Ok great. I saw the video they had posted and was thinking about ordering it if you said it worked.
about an hour ago ·
Christi - Do you know of something that does work? With all the weight loss/maintaining drugs out there it would be nice to know of some that actually work.
Tamra Barney – be very careful taking any diet pill. have you tried a green tea fat burner? I use to take lipo 6 and it worked for me
about an hour ago ·

As you can see from the above photo, Tamra was a spokeperson for the company along with some of her fellow co-stars.  Not only that, her page and personal testimonial is still up on the company’s site – at http://www.duzoxintv.com/tamra/.  She gave the following testimonial below -

“As a mom, reality TV star, and a busy woman, I have tried many different products in the past to help me with my workout regimen.  Nothing I have tried so far has come close to what Düzoxin has done for me.  I’ve just started taking Düzoxin, and judging by how wonderful the other girls look and feel, I have a feeling I’ll be taking Düxoxin for a very long time to come.  Thank you Düzoxin for making my life just a bit easier!”

It’s a wonder she and Gretchen Rossi don’t get along better, they both seem to have A LOT in common.

American Idol Big Mike

Viewers watching American Idol last night were shocked to see Michael Lynche aka Big Mike in the bottom three, but what was even more shocking was when Ryan Seacrest announced Mike as the receiver of the lowest number of votes this week.

The 26-year-old singer from New York found himself in the bottom three with Aaron Kelly and Andrew Garcia, even he had an okay performance with his version of “Eleanor Rigby” by the Beatles.

In his plea to the judges for their save (a one time opportunity the AI judges have to save one contestant this season), Michael performed “This Woman’s Work” by Maxwell.

With the audience cheering on, Simon Cowell announced the judges would be using their save on him. “This is unanimous, Michael, if that’s any comfort. We have decided we’re going to see you next week,” said Simon.

Due to the judges’ save being used this week, two contestants will be eliminated next week.  One can only hope the judges’ other favorite, Crystal Bowersox, doesn’t get voted off anytime soon.  Season 8 runner-up Adam Lambert will return next week to mentor the group.

Danielle Staub and Dina Manzo

The second season of the Real Housewives of New Jersey does not premiere until May 3rd, but the back and forth between the cast and slandering each other in the press has officially began.

HollywoodLife caught up with Dina Manzo and asked her about fellow castmate, Danielle Staub. “Danielle loves drama. She loves every second of it and being the center of attention whether it’s positive or negative,” said Dina.

The site then caught up with Danielle a few days later, informing her of Dina’s comments. Here’s what Danielle had to say, “I’m not going to put stock in her opinion. I think it’s really easy for Dina to judge — she’s never really left home. She’s the youngest of 11 children. She went from mom and daddy to husband number one and her sister found her husband number two. People are figuring out I’m not the person that [the wives] make me out to be.”

When asked what we can expect from the upcoming 2nd season, Dina reveals, “It’s a lot of crazy.” She continues, “We’re Jersey so we keep it real and we’re a little bit more street than the other housewife series. We’re not afraid to show everything – the good, the bad, the ugly. And you don’t mess with us either!”

In other Jersey news, Danielle also revealed that her 12 year-old daughter, Jillian Staub, is the “new Miley Cyrus.” Apparently Jillian is a great singer and has just recorded her first sing, “Whatcha Saying.

“Any age group will be interested in listening to Jillian’s music,” says Danielle. “It’s clean, fresh, fun and entertaining. I call it pop with a little twist of soul. She has a great pop voice and it’s not like lollipops and bubble gum but yet you could eat some pizza and have some fun. You have a journey with her music. I think she’s relateable and she’ll touch a wide group of people.”

Good to see nice things happening for Danielle’s daughters, her other daughter, Christine Staub, 16, is also a model with IMG.

kate-gosselin-buzz-aldrin

Last night’s Dancing With The Stars elimination was less about who went home, and more about who didn’t go home.

80 year-old Buzz Aldrin’s elimination didn’t exactly come as a big surprise, as he had the lowest scores this season. What was surprising was that for the second week in a row, Kate Gosselin avoided elimination. The former Jon & Kate Plus 8 mom wasn’t even in the bottom two.

“I did this show for the fighter pilots, the military, the older geezers like me,” said Buzz, who received a standing ovation from the audience. “I thank everyone who voted for me.”

Rounding up the bottom two with Buzz was surprisingly Jake Pavelka, former star of The Bachelor. A lot of people are questioning why people continue to vote for Kate? Well some reports believe people are voting for her because they feel sorry for her, or because they find her somewhat relatable.

Kate however continues to take a beating in the press. We reported yesterday that her ex-husband, Jon Gosselin, plans on taking her to court in an attempt to get custody of their eight children and stop paying her $22,000 a month in child support. And now the latest today is Kate gracing the cover of UsWeekly magazine under the headline – “Inside Kate’s Train Wreck.“  The magazine cover accuses her of torturing her partner Tony, and blowing off practice to shop.

In other DWTS news, the show is having it’s best season ever, as the ratings continue to soar. For the first time ever, an episode of DWTS beat American Idol in the ratings. Last week’s episode of DWTS averaged 23 million viewers compared to the 21.9 million viewers Idol received. Some are calling it the Kate Gosselin effect, it seems those who love her, or simply love to hate her, are tuning in to watch her.

Brandy and Ray J A Family Business

Brandy & Ray J: A Family Business is one of those shows that when you first hear about it, you automatically assume it’s going to be boring, that is until you watch the trailer.

In the new supertrailer released for the show, we get to see the drama and love that goes along with the family business. The show follows the personal and professional lives of Brandy, Ray J, Sonja and Willie Norwood. Sonja is the manager for Brandy and Ray, and decides to take a step back in the professional lives of her children.

Will Sonja really be able to stay in the background? Will Brandy and Ray J be able to step things up business wise? The show premieres April 11 at 9/8c on VH1.

The Supertrailer video is below -

jon-kate

Just when you thought all was well with Jon Gosselin and ex-wife Kate Gosselin, comes news that Jon is planning to sue Kate for primary custody of their eight children.

Jon’s new lawyer, Anthony F. List, tells TMZ that Jon is going to court to ask for primary physical custody and spousal support from Kate.

The reason? Well apparently Jon believes Dancing With The Stars is keeping Kate from being a good mother, with his lawyer calling Kate an “absentee mom.” And Jon plans to use the fact that Kate is doing DWTS as evidence that Kate is not spending “quality time with the 8 kids.”

Another issue on the table is the amount of child support Jon is having to pay Kate. Jon’s lawyer reveals Jon is currently paying Kate an enormous $22,000 a month in child support. The attorney feels the amount is “ridiculous,” and may ask a judge to reverse the arrangement and demand that Kate pay Jon.

Kate has however said in previous interviews that she’s only away from her kids from Sundays to Tuesdays, as most of her practicing is done at her house in Pennsylvania.

UPDATE: Kate has issued the following statement – “I am not willing to comment in public on the custody discussions regarding my children.  What I will say is this: I am and always will be a mother first, but as a single working mom I will do everything necessary to provide for my kids despite the opinions of others.”

TELL US – DOES JON HAVE A CASE? IS IT IMPOSSIBLE FOR KATE TO BE A GOOD MOM AND DO DWTS?
