“This couldn’t have come at a more perfect time for me to just get out of my life [in LA] … I’m single and I keep on saying, ‘I’m single for the first time’ but I never have really given it a shot to be single,” she toldRyan Seacrest on his radio show. “I tried and I tried to play that role but I really wasn’t single.”
Kim intends on keeping things casual saying, “I’m down for some hookups.” And as of those romance rumors with rapper Kanye West (the two were photographed together when he paid a visit to her DASH store in NYC this week), Kim states she is not dating him.
“He came by the store. We wanted to show him our new designs of the store,” she explained before Ryan jokingly asked her about checking out Kanye. “I was not checking out his ass,” Kim added, “Don’t start any rumors!”

Following his surprise elimination on last week’s Survivor:Nicaragua episode, Jimmy Johnson is now speaking out about his time on the show in a new interview.
The 67-year-old former NFL Coach from Islamorada, Fl discusses the hardships of doing the show at this age, what he would have done differently, and why is has no qualms about being voted off in a new interview with PEOPLE. Excerpts from Jimmy’s interview below -
Could you have changed the outcome?
I went in from day one saying, “Listen, I’m not a threat.” Feeling like I wasn’t one and thinking I’d convinced them I wasn’t, I didn’t seek out a strong alliance. Looking back on it, I probably could have gotten something together with the women. And maybe Tyrone that would have allowed me to go further in the game.
Do you understand Marty’s desire to get you out?
I didn’t know until watching the episode that Marty thought I was such a big threat. I guess I understand it but again I really truly didn’t believe people would give me a million.
Did you believe Marty would share the idol to better the team?
Absolutely not. No one bought that.
You repeatedly said Survivor was more stressful than coaching a Super Bowl team. Why?
The conditions are a lot better as a Super Bowl coach. Before the game, you have plenty of food and clean water and you get a good night’s rest in a bed. You have toilets and clean clothes. We had none of that in Nicaragua. So, not only are you doing all the physical activities of challenges and building shelter and dealing with the stress and strategy of the game, but you are doing it sleep deprived on an empty stomach. And I did it at 67 years old. Had I been out there at 27, I think it would have been less difficult.
Moving on to tonight’s episode of the show, a CBS press releases states, “One castaway works hard to prove his worth and take control of his tribe, but his efforts rub some tribemates the wrong way. The hunt for the hidden immunity idol widens the rift between two castaways at the La Flor camp, triggering a venomous fight. Meanwhile, a valuable secret is revealed that solidifies a powerful alliance.”
The rift between the two castaways refers to Naonka and Kelly B’s struggle for the immunity idol on the last episode. Things get worse tonight as other tribe members speak out against Naokna, who eventually declares war on her tribe.

Will she or won’t she? Is the question when it comes to Bethenny Frankelhaving a second baby.
The Real Housewives of New York City star stated a few months ago that she was likely done having children, but in a new interview with OK magazine, Bethenny, 39, mentions having another baby is still an option with hubby Jason Hoppy.
“Jason wants to have another baby, and I’m not sure, so the breast pump and the newborn clothes are in purgatory for who knows what will happen next,” she says.
She adds, “I’m almost 40, and it’s a decision that we’re talking about. It’s a conversation that needs to be had. I have a five-month-old baby, so I haven’t made that decision yet.”
Bethenny, who shares that 5-month-old Bryn has began rolling over, also states that she is lucky to have Jason as her partner. “Jason does everything,” she says. “He changes diapers, he watches her. We both do everything. I was told before I got into a relationship that if you want to have a child, you need a good partner. You could do it alone – I was prepared to do it alone – but it does help. There’s a lot to do, and you want someone who cares as much as you do about your child, so that’s the deal.”
In other NYC news, just days after Life&Style broke the news that Ramona Singer physically attacked a producer on the Real Housewives of NYC, UsWeekly is also confirming that Ramona did indeed hit the producer, except it wasn’t a slap but rather a punch!
“She was furious and felt like the producers were ganging up on her,” says one insider. “She literally lost her mind.” Ramona, 53, was reportedly shooting with Sonja Morgan and Alex McCord when she lost it.
“No one is really sure what exactly spurred her craziness,” a second source tells US. “But she got herself worked up over filming this scene and one thing led to another, and she punched the producer. Literally.”
With only one month into shooting, the producers are now trying “to mediate the situation so the cast all stays filming.” And somewhere in NYC, Kelly Bensimon is celebrating no longer being the lone crazy pants on the show.
Teen Mom star Maci Bookout graces this week’s cover of OK magazine under the heading – “Back With Ryan!”
In a new interview with the mag, Maci and her son’s father Ryan Edwards discuss reuniting and co-parenting Bentley. According to OK, Maci has broken up with her boyfriend Kyle King, 22, while Ryan has also broken up with his girlfriend Kathryn — who has appeared with him on the show.
“I’m taking a break. I guess she wanted more,” Ryan tells OK! about his break up, adding that he and Maci have talked about getting back together. “Maci calls to this day and wants to work it out,” Ryan, 21, reveals. “Everybody says that [she’s still in love with me].”
In other Teen Mom news, Amber Portwoodalso graces this week’s cover of US Weekly magazine (Why are these “teen moms” being rewarded with magazine covers?) and discusses her violent attack on ex-fiance Gary Shirley in a recent episode.
“A lot has changed,” says Amber, now in couple counseling with Gary. “I haven’t hit him since that fight.” As reported last week, Amber is currently being investigated by her local police department and child protective services following the domestic violence episode.
“When I see myself in that position, it really opens my eyes,” Amber says. “I want to stop it, because I don’t want to be like that.” Amber reveals she’s working with a counselor “on how to calm down when things happen,” she reports. “We are getting close to finding a solution…If I get mad, I always try to think about Leah and how an [outburst] will affect her.”
As for her current relationship status with Gary (RadarOnline reported last week that the two were back together), Amber says things are up in the air with the two. “I do love this man…but if we keep fighting then we can’t move forward,” she adds.

Her elimination came as no surprise as she and partner Louis van Amstel had the lowest score on Monday – 18 out of 30 – for their samba dance.
“I thought the judges were hard on me, but I think [they saw] that I am a dancer for real,” she said following her elimination. “I will take that with me forever, thank you so much.”
Margaret, 41, also had some nice words for her pro dance partner Louis. “I had the best teacher and the best partner,” and he returned the sentiment, telling her, “I love you and our journey hasn’t finished.”
Singer and last week’s eliminated contestant, Michael Bolton, returned to the show last night to perform the hit song “Hallelujah.” Despite the widely publicized controversy with judge Bruno Tonioli, there was no mention of the controversy last night and Bruno joined the other judges for a standing ovation after the performance.
So typically, the plan is to wait a few weeks into a Housewives season before doing weekly recaps, but within 10 minutes of watching the Real Housewives of Atlanta season 3 premiere last night, I knew a recap was coming today.
The season premiere definitely did not disappoint. It brought the drama as well as some highlarious great one-liners. “I’ve been chasing dick since I came out of the womb” anyone? Priceless.
My only pet peeve with the Atlanta ladies is that last night’s episode just seemed o what’s that word I’m looking for — phony! From watching the show, it is rather obvious that the ladies are very aware of the cameras and are definitely playing things up while getting into their characters. Example – Sheree’s comment about winning an Oscar one day. It just seemed like she was playing into the whole narcissism aspect of her character. I wasn’t buying it nor do I believe she really feels that way, nor do I think she has a new found passion for acting. I believe the ladies are turning things up a notch this season as not to get the Lisa Wu Hartwell treatment.

According to Popeater, Bravo executives are discussing the possibility of giving the Real Housewives of New Jersey break out star, albeit for all the wrong reasons, her own solo show.
“If they can give Bethenny her own show you can bet that they will give Teresa one,” a TV insider tells Popeater. “You can’t come up with a better script than Teresa’s life. She’s a mother and wife [of Joe] going through financial troubles and having to start all over again. Everyone has been hit hard by this economy and watching Teresa and her family struggle through problems will make for great TV.”
Popeater adds that Teresa has sold more magazines than Bethenny by appearing on the cover, plus her ‘Skinny Italitan’ cookbook is a NY Times bestseller.
However, a Bravo spokesperson failed to confirm or deny the news, simply telling Popeater, “Your Bravo insider has just as much chance of landing a spin-off show as Teresa.”
