It was only a matter of time. Almost a month after her extravagant made for TV wedding, there are now two reports revealing all is not well in Kim Kardashian’s marriage. Not exactly shocking as the couple only dated for a few months before getting engaged.

First is the cover story by Star magazine which reveals Kim, 30, and hubby Kris Kardashian Humphries, 26, are already miserable and fighting constantly. Even worse is the revelation that Kim’s family really does not like Kris. Apparently this storyline which played out on recent episodes of Keeping Up With The Kardashians was the real deal.

“Everyone in the family hates Kris,” a source close to the family reveals. “Kris and Kim’s brother Rob argue nonstop because Kris is always talking down to him … Kris asked Khloe if her husband Lamar was gay and if their marriage was a cover-up. She was offended and really ticked off!”

The report goes on to state that Kris is not a fan of the constant media attention and is now starting to feel like their marital life is “staged.” A source close to Kris states he “is now getting a rude awakening. He’s sick of how their lives are planned out like a scripted TV show.”

In fact, Kris was so disgusted with the Kardashians’ fame-seeking and money hungry ways that he got major cold feet days before the wedding and almost called things off, before Pimpmomager Kris Jenner came to the rescue! “Just days before walking down the aisle Kris freaked out. He doesn’t like how their relationship is all for the cameras … Kim’ mom convinced him to go through with it.” Yikes!

As if the above isn’t bad enough, a source, Steve Werner who works at the Skybar in West Hollywood, goes on record when he tells the mag he saw Kris flirting with two blondes at the bar just days before he tied the knot.

“I couldn’t believe it,” Steve states. “Kris was there with one of his friends, and they were getting a ton of attention from the girls at the bar. Two blonde girls in particular caught Kris’ eye, and they were getting a little too cozy, especially considering it was the week of his wedding. At one point he had an arm around each of the two blondes. They were laughing and drinking and kept asking to feel his muscles.”

And just in case the Star magazine cover story wasn’t damning enough, the current issue of UsWeekly (a pretty credible mag) pretty much echoes Star’s cover story.  UsWeekly’s report also confirms Kimmie’s family does indeed hate Kris.

“It’s been hard 100%  — percent,” Kim’s pal Brittny Gastineau told the mag on record. “Kris and Kim’s relationship moved really fast and the family didn’t know what his motives were.” Kim is also reportedly having a hard time with, you know, her family hating her husband. “She also listens to her sisters, so their skepticism about him is freaking her out,” a family source says.

The Kardashian clan are also irritated by the way Kris carries on with Kim. “It irks the girls that he’s always tossing Kim around,” says a Kardashian source. “He’s like this weird, big, clumsy oaf.” Ouch!

UsWeekly also confirms that Kimmie’s family, including Kourtney Kardashian and Khloe Kardahsian, are a bit weary of Kris’ intentions. Kimmie is reportedly worth over $35 million while Kris is only worth a mere $8 million. “Lamar got where he is because he’s at the top of his sport,” says the family source. “Kris is getting famous for marrying a Kardashian.” And the irony of that statement about Kris, who possesses an actual talent, is not lost.

A pal of Kris’ tells the mag he is well aware of the fact that he’s getting the “cold shoulder” from Kourtney and Khloe. “He only cares about Kim… He’s not going to kiss asses to fit in,” adds the pal. Another sources adds that despite all, Kris really does love Kim. “He has basically signed up to be a part of the Kardashian brand, and that’s not an easy transition… He may not be a natural fit, but he really loves Kim.”

A Star magazine source close to Kris however sums it up best by stating the obvious: “The romance was so rushed. This marriage will not have a long shelf life.”

A day after Rob Shuter of HuffingtonPost broke the news about Bravo firing Jill Zarin, 47, Alex McCord, 37, and Kelly Bensimon, 43, it turns out he was not technically the first one to break the news.

A look at the latest issue of UsWeekly magazine, which went to press on Tuesday, reveals the mag was the first to report that the three Real Housewives of New York City listed above alongside Cindy Barshop, 47, were on the chopping block. The mag only gives a reason for Jill’s axing, stating, “They were sick of her being a diva.”

And below E! News is also confirming the firings adding that Jill and Alex are taking it the hardest. So now we have the Huffington Post, E! News, and UsWeekly reporting the firings while the fired housewives are all denying the reports. Below are the statements given by the housewives –

Jill Zarin – “Jill has not been fired from The Real Housewives of New York City. The truth is that Jill is still in discussions with Bravo for season 5 and hasn’t made a final decision about returning to the show,” says Jill’s rep.

Alex McCord – She posted the following statement yesterday: “I can confirm that I have not been ‘fired’ by BRAVO for next season’s Real Housewives of New York City. There are many rumors swirling around. Here’s the truth – Simon & I are still under consideration for season 5 & we’ll know one way or another very soon. I have to laugh at all the purported ‘insiders’ giving ‘off the record’ quotes.”

NMFF Cindy Barshop – “Everything out there right now is just rumors. Nothing is 100 [percent] decided yet, it could go either way.”

Kelly Kra-Kra’s rep also denied she had been fired. However, all signs continue to point to the reports being true! In fact E! News is reporting that Bravo informed the women Thursday morning while explaining why the network is not confirming the news in the press.

“Basically by not publicly firing them and keeping them dangling, Bravo’s bought their silence while three new women start taping the new season in two weeks,” one RHONY insider explains. “Bravo found new women. Ramona [Singer] knows these women, she introduced them to Bravo. The Countess knows two as well. They wanted real New York society women.”

The source adds that taping begins in two weeks and that if the newbies have on-screen chemistry it’s a done deal with the previous Housewives. “On the very slim chance it doesn’t work, they have these ladies on the bench waiting to come back,” the source states.

Another insider reveals that Jill and Alex are taking the news the hardest. Jill is reportedly angry and is now in defense mode on how she can spin this to tell the public she left the show and wasn’t fired. “She’ll say she wasn’t coming back. She’s saying she’s ready to move on, she wants people to think it’s her decision, saying she wants to be a business woman and not a reality star. She’s very angry at both Bravo and [network executive] Andy [Cohen.]”

As for Alex, she and husband Simon van Kempen are reportedly in shock as they didn’t see this coming. Alex’s concern is however more of a financial one as her $275,000 income from Bravo is gone.

“Alex and Simon are both shell-shocked. They didn’t see it coming, they were blindsided. They’ve heard the rumors, but they thought they wouldn’t mess with the formula that works… They’ve just lost the $275,000 income they were making for the season. When Alex and Simon were not invited to do the live shows, they knew something was up. Alex is emailing and trying to stay in Bravo’s good graces as she need the money,” says the insider.

And just moments ago, UsWeekly reported Sonja Morgan confirmed the firings to them during an event last night while also confirming her return. “I really haven’t had time to digest it properly,” Sonja, 47, said Thursday night. “My voicemail was filled up today…At first, I just thought it was the usual rumors.” Sonja adds that Bravo informed her yesterday that she was returning for the new season.

Oddly enough, none of the housewives reported to be fired can say the same. And we all know they would be tweeting/releasing public statements about had they been asked back.

In fact Rob Shuter, who hung out with Ramona Singer last night, is standing by his report as he tweeted today that both Bravo and the fired housewives are “pissed” with him for breaking the news. He also confirms what LuAnn, who has been asked back, stated this week which is that 3 to 4 new “wealthy” housewives have been cast by Bravo.

In what can only be compared to a good bad telenovela, TMZ is now reporting Tareq Salahi plans to divorce his cheating wife Michaele Salahi.

Just days after the former Real Housewives of DC star reported his wife missing and kidnapped, only to be told she had run off with Journey guitarist Neal Schon, Tareq has had it up to here with his humiliation and is taking steps to file for divorce.

Tareq is reportedly telling friends he can never trust Michaele again and will never take her back. He apparently believes she’ll eventually get tired of Neal and try to come back to him. TMZ adds that Tareq has already changed the locks on the home he shares with Michaele and the winery.

And it gets even better folks as TMZ also posted a video (the video is below) that shows a very clueless Tareq cheering on his wife as she plants a kiss on Neal. The video was shot just weeks ago during labor day weekend when Journey was in Virginia for a show.

As reported yesterday, Michaele and Neal have been carrying on with a 2-year affair. The Salahis’ presence at the concert was no accident as Michaele had been keeping in touch with Neal days leading up to the show. He even sent her the following text days before the concert: “I will be there on the 4th for a make-up date. Solo!!!! Can u?”

Fast forward to today and Tareq is mending his broken heart with the help of non-famewhore Michael Lohan! Aka Lindsay Lohan’s daddy.

By complete and total chance, TMZ caught up with Tareq and Michael as they ate dinner in Washington, D.C. Thursday night. Tareq reiterated that he felt “betrayed,” by Neal, who he considered a good friend. As for Michael, he assured us that his friendship is “the real deal.” You know, as long as there’s TMZ cameras around!

Michael and Tareq have a history dating back to Michaele’s very brief time on Celebrity Rehab.

UPDATE – TMZ is now reporting Tareq Salahi has officially filed for divorce citing adultery and abandonment. In the divorce docs, Tareq claims Neal sent him a picture of his penis, perhaps to taunt him. The doc reads: “the paramour [Neal] sent to my email account … a email with an attachment of a penis” — presumably his.”  Tareq reveals he has a prenup with Michaele and blames the band Journey, claiming they have been paying for Michaele’s travel accommodations and other expenses.

TELL US – EXCITED ABOUT THE NEW SEASON OF WWHL?

Tareq Salahi is now revealing his devastation a day after falsely reporting his wife Michaele Salahi was missing and kidnapped.

Many doubted the latest publicity stunt drama from the former Real Housewives of DC stars for good reason. Hours after Tareq contacted TMZ to give them the exclusive, cops revealed Michaele had NOT been kidnapped and a rep for the band Journey confirmed Michaele had indeed run off with the guitarist Neal Schon.

Tareq Sources now tell TMZ he is completely “devastated” over losing his wife to Neal, whom he apparently considered a trusted friend. “Sources” reveal Tareq considered Neal and his band members “best friends.” In fact, the band reportedly came to his winery recently in Virginia and played for free while even staying with Tareq and Michaele.

It gets even better as just two weeks ago, Tareq and Michaele went to a Journey concert in Virginia and hung out backstage with Neal and a woman named Ava, whom Tareq believes is Neal’s wife. Yikes.

TMZ adds that Tareq has been crying hysterically, saying his life is over because Michaele is all he lived for.

And just moments ago TMZ broke the news that Michaele’s affair with Neal has been going on for over 2 years with a source stating she was bragging about the “wild sex” she had with the Journey rocker before she ran off with him.

Michaele Sources extremely close to Michaele reveal she and Neal first met in 1998 while she was engaged to Tareq. And despite the instant attraction the two felt, they managed to restrain themselves at first. However things came to a head in 2009 when the relationship turned sexual while Michaele was still married.

The two managed to keep the 2-year affair a secret until Michaele decided it was time to officially ditch Tareq. Michaele has reportedly described her relationship with Neal as an “intimate and passionate relationship.” In addition to crying hysterically, Tareq is also reportedly feeling “betrayed.”

So to sum this up for ya, while Tareq went to the media crying yesterday that Michaele had been kidnapped, she was busy hooking up with Neal in Tennessee, before bouncing to the next Journey concert in Memphis.

It’s hard to determine if this is a full on publicity stunt because, you know, it involves the Salahis. I am however inclined to believe Michaele did in fact run off with Neal as I doubt Neal would be in on these types of shenanigans. Now did Tareq truly believe his wife was kidnapped? That I highly doubt!

TELL US – DO YOU THINK THIS WAS ONE GIANT PUBLICITY STUNT? IF SO, WAS IT THEIR WORST BEST ONE YET?

In today’s shocking news, the Bravo network has reportedly fired Jill Zarin, Alex McCord and Kelly Bensimon from the Real Housewives of New York City! WOW to the ZERS!

Gossip columnist Rob broke the news, tweeting minutes ago: “Breaking #RHONY Jill, Alex and Kelly are gone insiders at Bravo tell me.” Cindy’s not fired???

Rob has a close relationship with a number of the RHONY housewives so he is a pretty credible source when it comes to RHONY news. We will keep checking for more updates and bring you more news the minute it becomes available!

UPDATE – The Huffington Post (the blog Rob works for) is now reporting that Bravo informed Jill, Alex and Kelly of the news this morning. The women reportedly had no idea they were being let go.

Sources confirm the trio will not be returning as fulltime cast members next season. Further confirming the news is the report that Countess Luann de Lesseps revealed yesterday in an interview that three new ladies will be added to the cast.

Another insider adds that Bravo told Jill, Alex & Kelly that they could possibly be reinstated next season if any of the new cast members don’t work out. While the article doesn’t mention Cindy, it was reported a while back that she was also being let go.

Pretty shocking move by Bravo as even though I’m no fan of the Jillousy, I don’t think firing her is the best way to go. Jill and Ramona Singer appear to be the two biggest stars of the show and bring a certain dynamic to the series. Love them or hate them. Alex’s firing is also a big surprise. Kelly’s? Not so much and very welcomed. As I stated previously, I believe letting Cindy and Kelly go, while bringing in three new housewives would have been best.

UPDATE #2 – UsWeekly is now reporting Cindy Barshop was also fired! As for why Jill was fired, sources tell the mag Bravo got “sick of her being a diva.” So now, the only remaining housewives are Ramona, Sonja, and Countess LuAnn. The source however adds that Ramona, who is currently negotiating her new contract, might end up getting the axe if she can’t reach a deal with Bravo. “If they can’t agree, she will be off the show as well,” says the source.

For the time being, none of the fired housewives have yet to confirm the news. In fact Jill and Alex, who normally tweet up a storm all through the day, have been very quite for the last couple hours.

UPDATE #3 – All of the fired ladies parties reported to have been fired are now denying the news citing they have yet to hear it from Bravo. Jill rep tells PEOPLE: “Jill is still in discussions with Bravo for season 5 and no final decisions have been made.” Alex also tweeted minutes ago: “Speaking for myself only, there is no decision yet whether I’m in or out of #RHONY -Nothing’s finalized, though I’d like to do another year.” All interesting. Denial or are they being honest?

In today’s shocking news, it turns out Jersey Shore’s resident dysfunctional couple Ronnie and Sammi are still going strong months after getting back together, you know, for the umpteenth time!
