It seems the self proclaimed Susan Lucci of reality television will not be disappearing anytime soon, much to the dismay of many.
The HollywoodLife is reporting today that Danielle Staub, former star of the Real Housewives of New Jersey, has signed a deal with VH1 to film a pilot for her upcoming spin-off reality show. You know, the one that will be focusing on her personal life, career, family etc.
The way it usually works is if VH1 likes the pilot of her spin-off show, they will then pick it up for a full season.
“VH1 has picked up her show and they are almost done with negotiations,” a “source” tells HollywoodLife. “They haven’t started filming yet, but they will soon!”
In other Danielle news, she has now released her new music video for her song “Cry.” The video, posted below, is apparently meant to bring attention to domestic violence. Enjoy -
The NY Post is reporting that Lamar Odom is now suing his ex-girlfriend and mother of his two children, Liza Morales.
The reason? Well, according to the Post, Khloe Kardashian’s husband wants a judge to make a “parental access schedule” and set “reasonable child support” for his daughter, Destiny, 12, and son, L.J., 9, who live with their mom Liza in Manhattan.
Sounds reasonable enough except that Liza, 31, tells The Post she is shocked by the legal attack because she’s always had to beg Lamar to pay attention to their kids.
“Lamar basically checked out as a father four years ago,” Liza reveals. “They [Destiny and L.J.] haven’t had quality time in a long time.”
And despite the fact that Lamar and Khloe have started filming their own spin-off reality show, don’t expect to see Lamar’s kids on TV anytime soon as Liza will not allow their kids to appear on television. “It has come up, and I told them no,” she said. “I’m trying to raise my kids with old-school values.”
Liza also adds that Lamar has made frequent trips to New York but never tried to see his kids.”This whole going to the court thing — people, my neighbors — I don’t want them to think this is the kind of mother I am, that he has to go to court for visitation,” says Liza. “It’s just really shocking, because Lamar knows the truth.”

Well it’s a new day and according to TMZ, Sheree is now being accused of stiffing a private investigator named Dwayne Alexander who she hired back in 2005 to dig up dirt on her then-husband, ex-NFL star Bob Whitfield.
A court order reveals she owes Alexander $28,858.93 for his services and interest. Alexander has reportedly fired off a letter to Bravo stating he plans to garnish Sheree’s wages from the show to settle the debt.

Days after In Touch weekly first reported the news, PEOPLE magazine is now confirming that two of Jonand Kate Gosselin’skids have been expelled from their private school in Pennsylvania.
Why you might ask? According to In Touch, the kids – Alexis and Collin Gosselin – both age 6, were kicked out for “rage issues.”
“They’ve fought with their peers, called them nasty names and made fun of other kids,” a source told the magazine. In fact, the In Touch report suggests the kids’ filming schedule might have caused the trouble at school.
“Collin had such bad issues that he refused to get his picture taken at school because he’s tired of being on-camera,” the source said. “The things they are saying are not words they should know,” the source continued. “They are learning them somewhere, but Jon doesn’t know where.”
PEOPLE magazine also confirms the kids are now being homeschooled while a source close to Kate claims the reports of violence and bullying is being exaggerated (um no it’s not if it got them expelled).
“The situation is being grossly overstated,” the source says. “The kids are going through a challenging time, but Kate doesn’t feel this is something that should be discussed publicly. It is a private matter.”

Just like that, we are now into the 5th episode of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, and I must say, I will be sharing a rather unpopular opinion in this recap.
With that said, let’s get right to it! The episode starts out with Lisa Vanderpumpand her pet Cedric. Lisa shares that just like her dog Giggy, she also considers Cedric a part of the family. We also discover that Cedric has big dreams of someday becoming a housewife.
Next up, it’s Camille Grammer and her lover-boytoy “good friend” Nick. For a minute here, I was wondering if this was the same Nick from the Vegas episode, but that was all put to rest the minute I saw the two making googly eyes at each other once again. Nick brings up Vegas and Camille recites the story of the rude comments Kyle allegedly made to her. Camille shares that the two have yet to talk things out.

First up is a funny blurb in the NY Post this week which basically refers to Danielle Staub as a desperate famewhore. The title of the story? ‘Danielle Staub eager for a celebrity photo op.’
According to the Post, Danielle attended a recent celebrity event during which she was very desperate to be in photos with Jerry Seinfeld. Danielle reportedly lingered on the red carpet for a half-hour. “Her assistant kept running back and forth to see if there were celebrities to take a picture with,” said a witness. Though the former prostitution whore wasn’t able to get a photo with Seinfeld, she did luck out, snagging one with Ben Stiller.
Speaking of Danielle, she also gave a recent interview to Popeater, during which she referred to herself as “the Susan Lucci of reality television.” Yes – she went there.
And when it comes to her reported solo reality show, she claims it has been picked up by a network and promises to announce that lucky network soon. “It’s gonna be all about me, my family and the real Danielle Staub that my fans and loved ones have been dying to see.” Something tells us Kelly Bensimon’s kids aren’t the only ones embarrassed by their mother.

If you recall, following Audrina Patridge’s elimination on Dancing With The Stars, mom Lynn came out of LA restaurant to talk to Paparazzi, during which she referred to Lauren as a “tramp” and a “bitch,” stating that Audrina’s upcoming reality show would fare better than Lauren’s. Lynn has since apologized for those comments.
UsWeekly caught up with Lauren this week during which they asked whether she thought of Audrina’s new show as competition. “I think it’s good for her. And no, I really don’t think about it like that at all,” responded Lauren.
And when it comes to Mama Patridge’s comments, Lauren attempts to take the high road, simply stating: “I really don’t have a comment on that right now, thanks.”
While Audrina has also yet to publicly discuss her mom’s comments, In Touch Weekly alleges that her mom’s comments might actually be an echo of the way Audrina really feels about Lauren.
According to the article, which claims the former two BFFs have been torn apart by fame, Audrina is reportedly sick of playing second fiddle to Lauren. “Lauren always talks about her books, her style and her life. It always has to be about her,” reveals an insider.
The mag also claims that Audrina never fully recovered from the rumors that Lauren once hooked up with her ex Justin Bobby and “has had bad feelings about Lauren ever since.”
Meanwhile, a source tells the mag Lauren was “pretty shocked” about Audrina’s mom’s rant. “Her mom spilled the beans about how she really feels,” says a friend of Lauren’s. “Now Lauren doesn’t think they were ever really even true friends.” Audrina has admitted in a previous interview that she hasn’t spoken to Lauren since the Hills finale.
