All “good” things must come to an end.

According to a new report, that will soon be the case with the Jersey Shore cast. In the latest issue of UsWeekly magazine, an insider reveals MTV is planning to replace the entire cast once the fifth season is over.

“After this group comes back from Italy and shoots season 5 this summer, that will be the end for them,” says an insider. The reason? It all comes down to money… of course.

See while the show is a mega hit for the MTV network, they are having to fork over millions to the cast members. A report that came out earlier this year revealed the core four of the group (Snooki, The Situation, JWoww and DJ Pauly D) were each earning $100,000 per episode for the fourth season. That amounts to over $1 mil each for the entire season.

Quite frankly, MTV feels the new stars will be “a lot cheaper” plus it also frees up the current gang to pursue their spinoffs. MTV has confirmed Snooki and JWoww have one in the works, as well as Pauly D and The Situation.

The source however promises the cast “will leave on a high note!” The cast departed Italy last Saturday as filming for season 4 ended and season 5 is scheduled to begin filming any day now in Seaside Heights, New Jersey.

Finally, the ABC network is getting ready to confirm the worst kept secret ever, which is that Brad Womack and Emily Maynard have indeed broken up.

Following the airing of the Bachelor finale months ago, the couple had been plagued with break up rumors. However multiple media outlets reported the two ended things for good weeks ago.

Unfortunately for Brad, 38, and Emily, 25, they hadn’t been able to confirm the break-up publicly due to their ABC contracts that reportedly prohibits them from talking about it. That is now all about to change as Bachelor insider Reality Steve just broke the news that Emily is currently in Los Angeles getting ready to film a special with ABC to discuss the break-up.

RS adds that Brad will not be a part of the interview a la Jake & Vienna, because he declined to take part in it. The interview will take place in a closed set with host Chris Harrison during which Emily will talk about her and Brad’s relationship, revealing they have been broken up for a while now, and that she was the one who ended it with him.

Emily’s interview will air on July 11th during the last 10-15 minutes of the “Bachelorette” episode. In comparison, Jake and Vienna’s interview lasted close to 45 minutes.

The Real Housewives of New York City filmed their season 4 reunion yesterday with filming lasting a total of 12 hours!

This taping is a bit early as it is five weeks away from the airing of their season finale (a total of 16 regular episodes will air this season). However as always, the housewives got to see all the episodes that have yet to air before the reunion taping.

As for why Bravo decided to film the reunion so early (it’s usually filmed about 2 – 3 weeks before the finale), Simon van Kempen (whatever happened to his song?) tweeted yesterday that it “was impossible to find a July date when all #RHoNY were in NYC”. They have jobs or something?

Jill Zarin tweeted the above photo yesterday of herself with costar Cindy Barshop. Below — more behind the scenes photos of Ramona Singer, Alex McCord, Sonja Morgan & Jill.

An of course all parties involved tweeted during and after the reunion. And based on those tweets, it appears Countess Lulu believes the knock down drag out reunions fights are a “great time,” Kelly needed some help from her “fans” on what to say, Andy Cohen might or might not have lost his temper with the ladies, and if there’s one thing clear, it is that it’s still the Brunettes vs the Blondes.

Below are some of the tweets in chronological order –

  • CountessLuAnn – “Having a great time with the girls! #RHONYReunionShow”
  • Kellybensimon – “Every #reunion, @BravoAndy asks a quick reflection on the season.TELL ME how I’ve changed this season!I will quote you on #RHONYReunionShow”
  • BravoAndy – “We just wrapped the RHNYC reunion. It was EPIC. I can barely hear. (Maybe I lost my temper at the ladies!) I need a drink.”
  • Ramonasinger – “I survived the reunion! (and don’t worry…so did Andy haha)”
  • Jillzarin “Omg! What a day!!!”
  • Jillzarin – “With my Girls @CountessLuAnn @kellybensimon our own after party!”
  • Mccordalex – “Amazing #Rhony reunion & then @ramonasinger @SimonvanKempen @SonjatMorgan and I all went to #gawkerpride party for Marriage Equality!!”
  • Ramonasinger – “We ALL survived! Lol rt “@RHO_TWEETS: @ramonasinger how brutal was it?!””
  • Kellybensimon – “Love my @jillzarin @countessluann @cindybarshop @bravotv”
  • Mccordalex – “Intense day of filming yesterday for #RHONY…

Meanwhile, an all new episode of the RHONY is set to air tonight on Bravo at 10/9c. On the 12th episode this season titled “Sixteen and Skip the Sweet,” it’s a birthday blitz when Ramona plans a sweet-16 party for Avery, LuAnn meets with a party planner for her own daughter’s 16th birthday, and LuAnn throws a surprise birthday bash for Jill.

In other BH news, Camille Grammer is talking about her divorce once again, and this time, she is sharing that her two kids will not appear on the upcoming season of the show. The reason? Her ex-husband Kelsey Grammer refused to sign a release to allow Bravo to film the kids… a la Simon Barney.

“My ex wouldn’t sign the release, so you are not going to see my children,” Camille told E! News. “Mason really wanted to be a part of the show.”

Camille reveals her daughter Mason, 9, is upset about not being able to film but adds that her son Jude, 6, isn’t disappointed. “My son is too young and well, he’s a boy,” she added.

And while Camille would not confirm or deny the news of Brandi Glanville joining the cast, she does share her thoughts on Brandi. “She’s fun, she’s a hoot. She kind of tells it like it is,” says Camille before adding that she is able to relate to Brandi, who also suffered a very public break up after her actor husband Eddie Cibrian dumped her to be with his now homewrecker wife LeAnn Rimes.

“I feel bad for what she’s gone through,” said Camille. “We’ve gone through something very similar.” According to reports and tweets, it appears Camille and Brandi have hit it off and are good friends.

According to a new report, there is trouble in paradise for newly engaged couple Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries.

And their issues all has to do with the Keeping Up With The Kardashians family. In Touch Weekly is reporting Kris H. is having a really hard time dealing with the Kardashian clan and is even getting to the point of wanting to call off the wedding.

The article points out that pimpmomager Kris Jenner is the main cause of stress in Kris’s life as she has turned into quite the nagging soon-to-be mother-in-law ever since Kris proposed to Kim.

Sources reveal Kris. J. has been “calling the shots” when it comes to Kris and Kim’s wedding. “She’s a stage mother with a type-A personality. She controls her daughters’ lives, and already she’s trying to control Kris’ as well,” reveals an insider. Kris J. “turned into the mother-in-law from hell as soon as Kris proposed,” adds the source.

The source adds that Kim’s mom is in fact the reason that Kris had to purchase the very expensive 20-carat diamond ring that Kim is sporting. “She told him, ‘Kim isn’t becoming a Humphries. You’re becoming a Kardashian. Deal with it,” the friend confesses. Ai ya ya!

If only the drama ended with Kris J. as sources add that there is also friction with Khloe Kardashian and Scott Disick. Khloe is reportedly not a fan of Kris’s because she doesn’t believe he fits well into their family. “He doesn’t seem to get her sense of humor,” says the insider. And as for Scott, Kris is not a fan of his as he reportedly pissed Kris off by treating Kourtney and Kim like crap during a recent vacation to Mexico. “Kris cannot stand Scott [and] he can’t believe how long he lasted in the family,” another source says.

In other Kardashian news, Kimmy’s ex boyfriend/NFL player Reggie Bush has moved on! Or has he? According to a new report by TMZ this morning, Reggie is now dating singer/actress Melissa Molinaro.

And who is Melissa you ask? Well just a Kim. K look alike and the same girl that had people doing double takes in an Old Navy commercial earlier this year. Sources tell TMZ the two have been dating for months and became “official” last Christmas. Melissa also celebrated her 28th birthday earlier this month with reports stating Reggie footed the bill for her party. A picture of Reggie with Melissa is below as well as more photos of Melissa!

A week after her failed suicide attempt, Teen Mom star Amber Portwood is now breaking her silence.

Amber, 21, gave an interview to Star magazine in their current issue, during which she revealed her plans to check into a California rehab center to get the help and support she needs.

“I am going to rehab for anger control issues and depression,” Amber tells Star. “I’m on medication at the moment to help me just relax. I’m getting the help I need from friends, family and counseling.”

When asked why she tried to take her own life, Amber had a hard time answering that question. “I’m in a vulnerable state right now, and I know people want a lot of answers. Unfortunately, I don’t have those answers yet, and I’m working on myself to get them,” Amber admits, adding that rehab is something she needs “to do to get better.”

So how is Amber doing today while she awaits rehab? “Before I go to California, I’m pursuing help with a psychiatrist,” Amber states. “I’m stable, doing OK and getting the help I need.” She adds that her daughter Leah is keeping her strong.

The suicide attempt occurred on June 14 after Amber suspected her boyfriend Gary Shirley had been cheating on her. She told Gary she planned to take her life, leading to a 911 call from Gary. She was then taken to an Indiana hospital and put under a 72-hour hold. There are reports that cops found her with a rope around her neck, and that she had also taken some pills.

Meanwhile, RadarOnline reports there was a review this Wednesday regarding the custody arrangement between Amber and Gary, and no changes were made. Gary reportedly has primary custody while “Amber has supervised visits once a week.”

Cynthia Bailey and Peter Thomas

According to a report that came out yesterday, Real Housewives of Atlanta star Peter Thomas is currently on trial for assaulting a woman in Atlanta.

The gossip website MediaTakeOut broke the story offering no proof but the word of a source who told them Peter, husband of Cynthia Bailey, is currently going through a bench trial (a trial held before a judge sitting without a jury) for assaulting a former female employee named Tamela at his now closed Uptown Club.

While no major media outlets seem to have confirmed this news, Reality Tea did uncover two mugshots of Peter, both stemming from recent arrests for battery.

The first mugshot came from a 2008 arrest in which Peter was arrested for Simple Battery. He was released the same day after posting $1,000 bond. The second arrest came a year later on December 3, 2009 when he was once again arrested in Atlanta on two different charges – Simple Battery and Battery with visible harm. He was released the same day after posting $2,000 bond. It’s likely the later charge is the one he is on trial for.

The sources add that Peter will likely be convicted and locked up for a year. As of the moment, neither Peter or Cynthia have yet to respond to the story.

This newly uncovered arrest records might be one of the reasons Cynthia’s family was so against her wedding to Peter last year. If you recall, Cynthia’s mom and sister spent most of her wedding day crying and trying to talk her out of it.

UPDATE – Peter spoke to the Sister2Sister blog and acknowledged he was on trial on Monday but states he was found not guilty. He denies hitting his former female employee and states she was “acting up in his restaurant and throwing plates.” Peter states after asking her to leave, he returned about 30 minutes later and was accused of pushing her. Peter said she slipped and the former employees who testified on his behalf backed his story.
