TELL US – ARE YOU EXCITED ABOUT THE NEW SEASON OF THE BACHELORETTE?

UPDATE – A preview commercial for the new season is below.

Following Monday night’s performances on Dancing With The Stars, three of the fan favorites found themselves in the bottom of the scoreboard. Kirstie Alley, Kendra Wilkinson, and Romeo all got the lowest scores coming into elimination night. So did one of them get the boot?

That answer is yes. After 7 weeks of not so great performances, Kendra’s luck ran out as she was sent packing in a somewhat surprising elimination. Oddly enough, Kendra fared better than Kirstie and Romeo in scores, scoring a total of 61 in comparison to their scores of 60 apiece. Also surprising was the fact that Chelsea Kane, who has fared well all season, landed in the bottom three with Kendra and Kirstie.

“Some flowers bloom early, some flowers bloom late, and you’ve been a late blossoming girl,” said judge Len Goodman to Kendra. “The last few weeks you’ve really come on.”

“I’ve lasted seven weeks, which is seven weeks longer than I ever thought I would last,” said Kendra who then went on to thank her partner Louis van Amstel. “I want to thank Louis for sticking with me and not fighting me.”

“Baby Hank, I’m coming home for you!” added Kendra, 25. “I may not the best dancer, but I am the best mom.” With Kendra’s elimination, five contestants remain.

After feeling the wrath of Nene Leakes on the most recent episode of the Celebrity Apprentice, Star Jones is now speaking out against her castmate.

During an appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show today, Star struck back against the Nene. “What were you thinking when Nene was going off like that?” Ellen asked Star. “I was thinking my grandmother is going to watch this,” Star replied.

“I was thinking I need to keep calm because, not for nothing, but when you’re confronted in the wild with an un-caged animal you’re supposed to retreat. You’re not supposed to attack,” added Star, 49, referencing why she decided to walk away from Nene during the verbal attack.

But it didn’t end there. “No,” replied Ellen, “with a bear you’re supposed to appear bigger. You’re supposed to get larger.”

“If you can tell me how to get bigger than that, I got money for you,” responded Star. Ellen then wanted to know if there was a possibility of a reconciliation anywhere in the future for the two reality stars: “How do you all get along now?” asked Ellen.

“Well, the lawyer in me would say, ‘We were not friends before, we were clearly not friends during, we are not friends after,'” said Star, adding, “I don’t know that girl and I don’t hang with people like that.” Ouch!

As for the Nene, she seems proud of the way she behaved on the show as she tweeted yesterday, “I always tell the truth because I don’t c the point n lying & it worked 4 me on last nite episode! I had taken all I could take. Bye Hope.”

Following the lackluster season one of the Real Housewives of Miami, the show’s resident train-wreck break out star Adriana De Moura had some choice words for the Real Housewives of NYC.

When E! News caught up with Adriana over the weekend, she made it clear she is not a fan of the latest season of the NYC Housewives. The reason? Because it is Bethenny-less.

Bethenny Frankel was my favorite,” said Adriana to E! at the Billboard Latin Music Awards. “I don’t think it’s the same without her. I think it’s a bunch of matronly women trying to look hot,” added the pot.

The topic then turned back to her own franchise and whether or not a second season is underway, or whether the show would be getting the axe a la the Real Housewives of DC.

“We can’t officially say it yet, but I’m pretty sure…I’m pretty confident…,” said Adriana with a smile about the possibility of a second season. She also added that she signed a six-year contract with NBC (NBC Universal owns Bravo). Oddly enough, some of the DC Housewives were also confident their show would be returning and well, we all know how that turned out.

It will definitely be interesting to see what Bravo decides to do with the Miami ladies. We’re thinking a cast overhaul might help breathe some needed new life into the otherwise stale series.

It was a busy Monday night on Dancing With The Stars as the stars not only had to do their regular dances, but also a group number.  Add in an extra guest judge in the form of undefeated world professional Latin dance champion Donnie Burns, and it was a night of suspense!

Following weeks of being in the middle of the pack, actor Ralph Macchio broke away last night. Ralph found his dancing mojo and tied for first place with a score of 36 for his sharp quickstep with partner Karina Smirnoff. The pair received major praises from the judges. “Once you are in the zone, you sell it like no one else can,” said judge Bruno Tonioli. With a score of 30 for their group number, Ralph and Karina finished the night with a total score of 66.

Also tying for first place with a score of 36 is NFL player Hines Ward, who continues to show he is a front runner in the competition.  With the group number factored in, Hines also scored a total of 66 for the night.

Tying for last place were Kirstie Alley and Romeo, both receiving a total score of 60 for the night.  Kirstie continues to struggle and even had a minor breakdown during one of her rehearsals with partner Maksim Chmerkovskiy. Kirstie 60, broke down in tears when Maksim told her to “stop talking” during a practice. “I need a break!” snapped Kirstie. “You scream and jump around and I’m frustrated.”

The duo however quickly made up and even ended their lively jive dance with a spontaneous kiss.

Below is the leaderboard. In parentheses are the total scores from last night including the group number –

Ralph Macchio & Karina Smirnoff: 36 (66)
Hines Ward & Kym Johnson: 36 (66)
Chelsea Kane & Mark Ballas: 34 (64)
Kendra Wilkinson & Louis van Amstel: 31 (61)
Kirstie Alley & Maks Chmerkovskiy: 30 (60)
Romeo & Chelsie Hightower: 30 (60)

And tonight, another star will be sent packing. So the question is…

TELL US – WHO SHOULD GET THE BOOT TONIGHT?

Real Housewives of New York City attention whore star Kelly Bensimon celebrated her 43rd birthday twice in recent days!

First Kelly celebrated with a party at the TAO Nightclub at the Venetian on Thursday and then with a pool party the next day at the Tao Beach in Las Vegas, Nevada. The mom of two, who posed for Playboy over a year ago, showed off her crazy toned bikini body while sporting a purple print two-piece! More bikini photos of Kelly below.

In other news, Bethenny Frankel took to her Bravo blog last week and made some comments about her former nanny Gina, who quit on the most recent episode to focus on her health. In her blog post, Bethenny also talks new nanny Dawa and gives an update on Gina’s health. Excerpts from Bethenny’s blog is below –

“There’s a new nanny in town, and she brings peace to my home. Dawa, as we both identically pronounced, is the opposite of Gina. She is quiet, shy, respectful, a light eater, and she never talks on the phone nor does she watch TV.

I love me some Gina, and her health is good now by the way, but we needed to transition into a mellow nanny. Most importantly, Dawa, like Gina, loves my baby Bryn and everything is going smoothly. Feeling comfortable with child care is peace of mind.

I’m very organized, or try to be. In the home, and with a baby, that is next to impossible. Nevertheless, I keep trying. Dawa being able to blow dry my hair is an extra added bonus. Truthfully, I’ve only had her do it twice. My hair is usually in a ponytail or a clip. It’s good to know she’s there in a pinch.”

A new episode of Bethenny Ever After airs tonight on Bravo at 10/9c.

“I’m back! I may be nicer, but the girls are just as bad as ever! And it takes a real lady, like me, to keep them all in check at the reunion special! You won’t wanna miss it!” said Perez Hilton. “Oh, and tune in to see what I did that makes Tanisha wanna hurt me – badly – for real!”

Throughout this season, the house had been divided between Char’s minions and Nikki & Lauren. However, towards the end of the season, those alliances started to crumble. Have tensions eased since the girls have been away? Is anyone still speaking to Nikki? And what did Perez do to make Tanisha Thomas so mad? All those questions will be answered in the special two-part reunion.

Meanwhile, casting for season eight of “Bad Girls Club” is currently underway while Oxygen will give viewers a sneak peak of season seven — “Bad Girls Club: New Orleans” during the second part of reunion on May 9. Bad Girls Club: New Orleans is set to debut this summer on Oxygen.

On last night’s episode of the Celebrity Apprentice, it was Nene vs Star take, oh who’s keeping count! The two ladies butted heads once again, well actually it was more of the Nene verbally attacking yet another person on national television, while Star just attempted to keep her distance cool.

The episode begins with Nene Leakes still reeling over the elimination of her new BFF La Toya Jackson. You know, the same person she verbally attacked a few weeks ago and the same person she helped send packing. Nene is upset at Star Jones as she feels Star is manipulative aka playing the game, something the Nene clearly doesn’t know how to do.

The task is to produce a live hair show using Biosilk and Chi products, with the winning project manager getting $40,000 for their charity of choice. Donald Trump wants to know who will be PM for the women’s team and Nene immediately volunteers. Okay, all is well. Not! Almost immediately, the Nene loses her cool as she reveals the only reason she’s PM is because Star told her to be. Evidently, she has to do whatever Star says, and even more interesting, asking someone to be a PM in the game of the Apprentice equals fighting words!
