gloria_govan_interview

In an all new interview with VH1, Basketball Wives star Gloria Govan is speaking out on her experience with being on the hit show.

Gloria speaks out on the drama with Royce, her fiance Matt Barnes stating that he is “disgusted” with the show, and briefly touches on the scandal of her sister, Laura Govan, having an affair with Shaquille O’Neal. Gloria also reveals her wedding is coming up in August and that she will not be returning for a second season.

Excerpts from Gloria’s interview below -

And how do you feel about the show? Do you feel like your portrayal is accurate?

To a certain extent. I didn’t know the women coming into the show, so I think sometimes I may come off a little naive. I may come off as the shy-girl-in-the-background type, which is not my personality at all. I’ve never had a problem telling anybody how I feel. On the show, though, I’m being me, 100 percent real the whole time so there’s no surprises. I haven’t seen any surprises.

What did you think of the fact that Jennifer and Evelyn seem insistent on pushing the point that he’s not as faithful as you seem to think he is?

You have these grown women who have been in the game for so long, and you would think they would say, “Hey listen, Gloria, I’ve been there done that for the past 10 years and here are my stories, here is my advice, take it for what it’s worth and good luck.” Instead they have to be so persistent and try to taint our relationship. I look at it as being bitter and jealous. I’m 10 years younger than most of the cast members on the show, I’m 24-years-old, and I’m in a respectful, loving relationship, I’m getting married in August, I have two beautiful kids and a family who loves me, and a lot of them are missing a majority of those components. It’s natural for them to be envious of what I have.

They’ve gone as far as to suggest that they have, maybe secondhand evidence, that Matt has been unfaithful to you. Do you have any response to that?

No. I think that they’re just very scarred individuals who don’t have anything else better to do than try to create misery. They would be happy if I was where they are now, and that’s unfortunate. If you’re someone who thrives on someone else’s misery and you’re trying to break up a happy home, I just think it’s kind of sad.

What did you think about Matt saying the show “disgusted” him in a recent interview?

Matt is very opinionated. I just asked him to make sure that he pinpoints exactly what disgusts him next time. That’s just such a broad and vague comment that it could be interpreted in any way. It didn’t surprise me, though. Matt has told me several times that he doesn’t like the show. It’s not necessarily about my role, but just how bitter the other women are. Bitter and angry and just jealous. He’s just like, “That’s not a good look, that’s not who you are, that’s not who you represent.” I think he’s more concerned about people thinking that I run in this kind of circle, because I don’t. I can’t say that I was disgusted by the first episode, but you know, I wasn’t really a fan.

Your storyline isn’t exactly drama-free, though. When you talk about Royce you say to fraternize with her would be like sleeping with the enemy.

What I mean by that is Royce is Dwight Howard’s baby mother, and Matt is on the same team as Dwight Howard, so being friends with Royce is not worth messing up Matt’s team camaraderie. If Royce comes over here and we’re all buddy-buddy and Matt’s around, that could really end up messing up Matt and Dwight’s friendship.

Obviously the reason she was so aggressive in the boxing ring is because everyone had sort of informed her of your opinion of her. Did you feel betrayed by everyone at that point?

Not necessarily betrayed, I just think that they realize that I’m not going to conform to their little group, and so I think they try really hard to make me the black sheep or the outsider. Which is fine. I don’t have a problem with that, it was just kind of funny that they try to make it seem like I’m the only one who feels this way. They’re so quick to tell Royce, “Oh, well Gloria said this,” but in turn, they were agreeing with me or it may have been that they started the conversation and I just chimed in a little bit. I just think it was everybody’s opportunity to say, “Now we have a way to turn the tables.”

I’m sure that you don’t want to get into it about your sister’s alleged affair with Shaq, but did that add any level of stress as well? The fact that you were coming in with people already whispering about your family?

No. Like I said, in the show, they already formed their opinions and they’re already friends with Shaunie. And although I’m friends with Shaunie, I can’t say that we talk on the phone or we text each other. We are cordial, but she’s not invited to my wedding. She’s not that type of friend, so it didn’t bother me. You guys have already formed your own opinions, and I’m not here to change that. I’m here to say you’re not going to talk about my sister in front of me and think that that’s OK.

Knowing what you know about the way the show turned out, would you do it all over again?

No. No, no.

Would you participate in a second season?

No.

An all new episode of Basketball Wives airs tonight on VH1.


KELLY

Millions of viewers saw Kelly Bensimon, star of the Real Housewives of New York City officially lose her mind during Thursday night’s episode, and for a minute, it seemed Kelly realized she came across as crazy as she claimed to be “embarrased” by her behavior in her bravo blog.

CLICK HERE TO READ THE RECAP OF THE LAST EPISODE OF THE NYC HOUSEWIVES!

Fast forward to a few hours later and it seems her other personality felt differently, as she took to her twitter to post some rather insane rants, even blaming Bethenny and editing for how she came across Thursday night. The lowlight of her rants came when she accused Bethenny of exploiting her father’s death for ratings.

“Anyone that blames me, needs to look at themselves. Would u ever exploit a family member’s death for ratings? Think twice, then tweet.”

The above was posted on Kelly’s twitter Friday along with some other crazy rants to fans of the show.

“now i know how nancy kerrigan felt. that’s insight into the “SCAREY ISLAND” you have no clue what really went down.”

For all the haters, I feel sorry for you, It must be hard. projection is a form of deflection. Do somethin nice for someone else.”

Haters I cannot comment on “storylines”. Keep it real, for me. Bad acting does not equal real. Ugh.”

she[Bethenny] hates me for i wont play her game. i like pioneers/mavericks who empower and explore.”

I am emabarrassed that all of you #rhnyc fans are being so rude. Watch snl lawrence welk and laugh a little. You guys need it.”

i am not judging i am drawing attention to lies. it is creepy to exploit the death in a family on tv. full stop, vile.”

lets make”CREEPY” teeshirts. everyone knows someone who does something creepy. lets make them and sell them for charity. do it.”

There are some more rants about how everybody on the show is acting and she being the only authentic one on the show. She then goes on to say that she thought these ladies were her real friends. But Kelly, if everyone on the show is acting out scenes, then why would you consider them your real friends?

So to summarize Kelly’s behavior, she’s irrational, delusional, paranoid, and has crazy mood swings. Roid rage? Perhaps any mental health specialist reading this can help make a diagnosis because her recent behavior is quite puzzling. And let’s not forget she plead no contest last year to physically assaulting her ex-boyfriend, Nicholas Stefanov. She gave him a black eye and sliced his cheek during an arguement. She received community service.

Here’s to hoping Kelly gets help, and steps away from twitter and all tv cameras.

TELL US – WHAT ARE YOUR THOUGHTS ON KELLY’S TWITTER RANTS?

spears-zarinCountess LuAnn de Lesseps

It seems Jill Zarin of the Real Housewives of New York City is determined to make it on the D list, whether we like it or not.  First she spent last summer befriending Z-list stars such as Michael Lohan and Jon Gosselin.

That didn’t seem to work out too well for her, but you know what they say – If at first you don’t succeed, dust yourself off and try again.  Well our good ol Jill is now trying her luck again, and this time it’s with the mother of Pop star Britney Spears.

According to PEOPLE, Lynne Spears had a girls night out this week in Manhattan and invited was none other than Jill Zarin, who then took the time to leak this story to PEOPLE and even found time to make herself available for an exclusive interview about her new found friendship with Lynne. Ah that crafty Jill!

“I met Lynne a few years ago backstage with [my daughter] Ali at Britney’s concert at the Meadowlands [Sports Complex in New Jersey], we just connected and we kept in touch,” said Jill to PEOPLE. “When Lynne comes to town we try to meet and catch up. She called me a couple of months ago and said she was coming to New York.”

Jill also made sure to talk about Lynne’s kids and their well being.  “We talked about Mother’s Day, what we got, about New Orleans, about traveling,” says Jill of their dinner. “Her kids are doing fantastic. Her grandkids are her life. She looks amazing. She’s in amazing shape; she works out. She was really happy.”

Gotta love this woman, she is relentless.  And in case you’re wondering, Lynne did not speak a word to the press about her dinner or friendship with Jill.

Moving right along to Jill’s underdog.  According to E! Online, we unfortunately haven’t heard the last of Countess LuAnn de Lesseps‘ singing.  The Countess signed a deal this week with indie dance music label Ultra Records, and is apparently working on releasing a full album.

When asked about singing way off key in this week’s episode of the NYC Housewives, the Countess had the following to say:  “In life, we don’t always hit the ‘high note’ but I wanted to go out and do my best because I have always loved to sing.”  Good to see LuAnn doing something she loves albeit at the expense of our eardrums.

The Real Housewives of New York City 3

Being on a reality show like the Real Housewives of New York City is a pretty tough task and not for everyone. In my opinion, there are three main criteria in which one should absolutely not take part in anything “reality tv.” A – If you’re insane, B – If you’re crazy, and C – If you’re emotionally unstable. And when you happen to fall under all of the above, then you should absolutely under any circumstances not put your life on television. Unfortunately for Kelly Bensimon, the damage has been done. More on Kelly later.

Now onto to the recap in what is absolutely without a doubt the best episode EVER from the Bravo housewives franchise.

LuAnn – Fortunately for LuAnn, this had to be the episode where Kelly went bat sh*t crazy, thus taking most of the attention way from her tragic singing. And how much did she pay this producer to literally just lie to her over and over and over? After the whole Kim Zolciak singing debacle, I cannot grasp why someone who can’t hold a note would want to humiliate themselves on national television. It’s quite baffling to me. And while the end result of her song sounds decent, I can’t help but feel she is about two decades behind in her music. Perhaps she could have had a big hit in the early 90s.

Now onto the trip. We get to see Ramona and Sonja leave for the bachelorette trip to St John. While in the car, Ramona mentions that she is not surprised Jill decided to skip the trip because the trip is “not about her,” and when it’s not about Jill, she doesn’t like to participate. And of course since Jill isn’t going, her lapdog/underdog LuAnn won’t make it either.

The ladies finally all land in St. John and we find out Bethenny has just buried her father and is a bit raw emotionally. Almost immediately Kelly begins to unravel. Buckle up for the ride folks cause it’s a whole lot of crazy coming up!

The ladies are riding in a car on the way to their yacht and Kelly mentions she doesn’t eat pretzels because she does not eat processed foods. Okay makes sense, that is until she mentions her love for gummi worms, okay no longer making sense. Ramona asks her if she’s six, and Bethenny comments in her interview that “Gummi bears don’t come from the vine, those aren’t bears you see in the Bronx zoo.” In her interview, Alex also feels the NEED to mention that this is the first time she’s taken a non business trip without her kids since she became a mother. Thanks for sharing Alex, I’m a better person for knowing that lil tidbit.

Right away, you start to see the tension between Bethenny and Kelly, I would say most of it coming from Kelly, who seemed to have a bone to pick with Bethenny. Bethenny on this trip seemed more quiet and subdued, for Bethenny standards at least, so it was interesting to see Kelly keep escalating the tension. I would say Kelly was the “aggressor” this go around.

The ladies put on their bikinis and it’s time to eat. Not Crazy – Kelly shares she doesn’t like to eat in a bikini, and then goes on to get a cover up. Crazy – Kelly completely losing it once the ladies started talking about Jill. While it’s understandable that Kelly does not want to talk about Jill behind her back, she should have voiced that and then kept quiet. Trying to control what the ladies felt and said about Jill made no sense. Kelly reveals that she’s “normal” and the rest are “abnormal.” Bethenny tries to explain  some things to her, during which Kelly declares that she doesn’t care. Fair enough, to which Bethenny tells her she shouldn’t comment if she doesn’t care. Good advice considering Sonja was just as well sitting there, keeping quiet because she didn’t want to join in on the Jill convo. Kelly then makes her 2nd moronic comment of the night, when she accused the ladies of making “lemons out of lemonades.” Uh what Kelly? Bethenny explains to her that what she meant to say was “making a mountain out of a mole hill” as lemons out of lemonades means making something good out of something bad, which wouldn’t apply to the conversation being had at the moment.

Okay seriously, is this woman a complete and total moron? It’s quite baffling to me that someone her age could be this idiotic. Especially someone who claims to hold an English degree from the prestigious Columbia University. And by the way, it was revealed last year that she didn’t actually go to Columbia, but instead took classes at Columbia Extension College, something anyone can do. Bethenny said it best later on in this episode when she said Kelly is the most “unintelligent human being” she’s ever had the pleasure of being around. Couldn’t agree more. I’m pretty certain I’m losing brain cells just listening to her. I can’t even call her a bimbo. Her IQ would need to be about 100 points higher to be on bimbo status. She’s simply a moron.

Back to the recap. Kelly then continues to yell, and tries to make a grand exit through a closed glass door. While leaving, she snaps, “You guys are sick, it’s like you’re demented, see ya!” Ramona laments that Kelly doesn’t like to “feel” and I think she might have a point. Moments later, Kelly returns from her self imposed “time-out.” It’s so interesting to see Kelly being so loyal to Jill considering just how badly Jill treated her last year, especially at the reunion show. Something tells me had the tables been turned, Jill would have bad mouthed Kelly along with the ladies in a heartbeat.

heidi-darlene

As the remaining few minutes of their 15 minutes of fame continues to tick down, the behavior and actions of Heidi Montag and her husband Spencer Pratt continues to get more outrageous.

The latest is now that The Hills star and her husband decided to call the cops on Heidi’s mom, Darlene Egelhoff, yesterday after she made a surprise visit to her L.A.-area home.

“My mom [Darlene Egelhoff] just showed up to the house unannounced… and after what she did to me on national TV, I have no desire to see her,” Heidi, 23, told TMZ, referring to her mom’s disapproval of her 10 plastic surgeries in one day.

According to Heidi, she immediately notified her personal security team when Darlene began “pounding on the door.” Spencer adds, “She’s gone. The cops took her away.” Heidi then reveals she plans on getting a restraining order against her mother. “Her showing up is completely out of line and psychotic,” Heidi says. “I’m getting a restraining order against her.”

Interestingly enough, this week’s cover of US Weekly magazine details a cover story about Heidi being controlled by Spencer. According to the article, Spencer has “preyed” on Heidi’s insecurities and ruined her self-esteem. Spencer is also said to have scary “rage issues” and his former pals fear he could “snap at any minute.” It’s also said that their sad and desperate hunger for fame has left them friendless.

The lives of these two continues to become increasingly sad and pathetic. Almost everything they do in their lives is done for publicity. It’s difficult for us to know what’s real and what’s fake with them. Heidi was already on the phone with TMZ while her mom was still allegedly knocking on her door. At the rate they continue to carry on, they might be headed for a tragic ending.

Kris Jenner's FaceKhloe Kardashian Odom

Most mothers would tell their daughters to takes thing slow after they’ve only been married some odd months to a man they only knew for a month, but not Kris Jenner!

The pimp extraordinaire and Keeping Up With The Kardashians mom has decided she wants another grandchild and she wants it from Khloe Kardashian.  And no, the above photo of Kris has not been altered in any way.

Khloe, 25, revealed last year that she and hubby, NBA Player Lamar Odom, were trying to have a baby. “Well, she better step it up because I need another grandchild!” said Kris, 54, to UsMagazine Saturday while hosting a pre-Mothers Day Party at Eve Nightclub at Aria in Las Vegas.

“It kind of makes sense,” said Kris of her attempt to get Khloe to secure her future give her a grandchild. “I’m hoping. Don’t make me get pregnant again because I’m kind a little tired.”

nyc-trip

Tonight’s all new episode of the Real Housewives of New York City is going to be epic for two reasons.  First, the housewives go on a vacation and we get to see Kelly Bensimon really lose her cool.  As it that wasn’t good enough, we finally get to hear Countess LuAnn “singing” in the studio.

Coming up first tonight, we see the housewives (excluding Jill and her underdog LuAnn) take a housewives-style trip to St. John in celebration of Ramona’s upcoming vow-renewal.  Ramona surprises the ladies with a 5-star yacht as the accommodations. Things however take a bad turn when Kelly and Bethenny butt heads after Bethenny decides to open up about her father’s passing.

On the other side of town, Jill’s underdog has for some reason decided to embark on a music career and heads on to the studio to record her song - ‘Money Can’t Buy You Class or Talent.

A video of LuAnn “singing” in the studio is below. You can also click here to listen to the finished and heavily auto-tuned version. And oh yeah, LuAnn will be performing the song live tonight on Andy Cohen‘s late-night show Watch What Happens Live (11 p.m. EST).



Kendra-Hank-Baskett

It seems having multiple sex tapes and being exposed as having tried to sell those sex tapes just two years ago isn’t sitting too well with Kendra Wilkinson’s husband.

According to a new report by Life&Style magazine, Kendra’s sex tape(s) is causing big trouble for her and hubby Hank Baskett. The magazine even claims the two might be headed for a split, just a month shy of their one year wedding anniversary.

As we previously reported, porn company Vivid Entertainment, has announced its plan to release the sex tape(s) titled Kendra Exposed, by the end of this month. The tape features a 19 or 20-year-old Kendra having sex with an ex boyfriend. “Hank is totally upset and embarrassed,” an E! insider reveals to Life & Style. “He’s so angry.”

Hank is also said to be concerned about being the butt of jokes of his NFL teammates. “The main reason he’s embarrassed is his team’s [possible] reaction,” says the insider.

However, the worst part of the whole sex tape ordeal for Hank is the fact that Kendra, 24, tried to sell her own sex tape(s) just less than 2 years ago, while she was already engagement to him. “Kendra’s sex tape was shopped to me two years ago,” celeb sex-tape broker Kevin Blatt tells Life & Style. “It was done by a person who said he was Kendra’s manager.”

And despite Kendra’s alleged attempts to try to block the tape release, Vivid is pushing on, and has even released some photos of Kendra from the tape to TMZ. A few of those are below -
