According to a new report by TMZ, Kim Kardashian has decided to sue Old Navy for using an alleged look-alike in one of their commercials.

If you recall, the Old Navy commercial made headlines earlier this year after some fans stated they had to do a double take to see if the girl in the commercial, Melissa Molinaro, was indeed Kim.

The Keeping Up With The Kardashians star remained mum on the topic back then, though sources revealed she was not happy with the ad campaign. In the lawsuit, Kim claims Old Navy intentionally used the look-alike in an effort to deceive the public into thinking Kim was affiliated with them.

TMZ also reports Kim was more furious that Old Navy was tweeting to her page about the look-alike in hopes of garnering even more publicity. One of those tweets included, “@CBSNEWS reports that Old Navy’s Super CUTE star looks like @kimkardashian. #LOL. What do you think?”

So how much does Kim feel she deserves from Old Navy? Just a mere $15 – $20 million! Wowzers. The Old Navy commercial is below for those who have yet to see it plus some photos from the ad.

Even more odd, Melissa, aka the girl who played the Kim look-alike, is the new girlfriend of Kim’s ex Reggie Bush.

My take on this – Upon first seeing the Old Navy commercial, I honestly did a double take because I thought it was Kim. However it was rather obvious it wasn’t Kim plus for starters, there was nothing in the press about Kim doing such a commercial. While Kim’s lawsuit might have some merit, this is a very bad PR move for her. While the public tolerates her, they don’t like her or her talentless family. She’s become filthy rich off a sex tape and having little to no morals. Trying to get more money from her celebrity via a lawsuit is not going to win her any more fans. As expected, in reading the comments on TMZ, over 90% of them are very negative towards her. Similar to her public comments on the Casey Anthony case, this just seems ill advised and has Kris Jenner’s fingerprints all over it. So the question is…

Judging from the first previews of the Bachelor Pad, it appears the feud rages on between exes Jake Pavelka and Vienna Girardi!

The last time the two were reunited, it was for a highly-charged no holds barred smackdown sitdown interview about their break-up. Those evil geniuses at ABC decided it would be best to add fuel to the fire by having the formerly engaged couple live in a house together while also competing for $250,000… alongside Vienna’s new boyfriend Kasey Kahl of course!

In the new promo below, which first aired during Monday night’s episode of The Bachelorette, we get a sneak peek into the drama on the show. “I hope she falls 3,000 feet to her death,” says Jake in a quote we can only hope was taken out of context. “She’s trying to hurt me so she can get the money,” adds Jake.

Vienna is a bit more emotional as she snipes, “I hate him!” The preview clip is below via UsWeekly.

Bachelor Pad season 2 premieres August 8 at 8/7c on ABC. That premiere date means Jake will be appearing on two reality shows concurrently as he is also starring on VH1’s new flop show Famous Food.

After months of telling the press Bethenny Frankel was toxic to the Real Housewives of New York City and that she was happy with her departure, it appears Kelly Bensimon has had a change of heart!

In a new interview with E! Online, the formerly? cra cra Kelly reveals what she misses and doesn’t miss about Bethenny. “I love it when people do well,” said Kelly about Bethenny’s success both on and off the screen. “The better that she does, the better the franchise of Housewives does.” Uh???

Kelly goes on to add that she doesn’t miss the epic fights on the RHONY. “Everybody…every single person…misses the altercations between Bethenny and I,” she stated. “For whatever reason, they just love the fact that we fight for four minutes of television. Do I miss fighting with her? I don’t like fighting. Do I miss her on the show? She was fun.”

Kelly also wants us to know she currently has a very busy social life. “I’m actually just seeing a lot of different people and just doing the dating process,” she shared. “I was married for such a long time and then I just took a break from just dating in general to get my feet firmly on the ground…” When it comes to her celebrity crushes, Kelly “loves” Jason Segal and is “obsessed” with Jimmy Fallon.

In other NYC news, in addition to being a dentist, financial adviser, music producer, video director and lawyer, it seems Jill Zarin also moonlights as a Dietitian!

In a new interview with OK! magazine, Jill, 46, gives fans tips on how to lose weight. “Always eat breakfast,” says expert Jill. “Eat something. Start your engine. It doesn’t have to be a full breakfast – it could be an orange. If you don’t start your engine, your body thinks it’s starving itself, and it won’t let you burn calories. Your body is tricked into thinking it’s going to be starved and it’s saved as fat.”

Rule #2? “Try not to eat past 7:00 at night,” reveals Jill. “That’s when people tend to put on weight, because they eat at night and you’re not moving around enough to burn anything if you’re laying around. Try to eat within working hours. I say eat within working hours, 8-6, and don’t eat after those working hours. Don’t eat after 6 or 7.”

And Jill’s final rule? “Make sure you’re hydrated. It’s going to be a hot summer. Drink, drink, drink. And if you don’t like water, then drink lemonade, drink iced tea. Drink!”

But just in case you’re not able to follow all of Jill’s tips, you can always buy her Skweez shapewear to take some pounds off your look!

CBS Big Brother 13 Cast
We’re only two weeks into the current season of Big Brother 13 and already, it has become a lackluster season.

Similar to the big failure of the “Saboteur” twist last season during which the Saboteur was the first Houseguest evicted, the twist this season of the returning “dynamic duos” is turning out to be one big ball of fail.

As I’ve stated on numerous occasions, Big Brother might just be my favorite reality show of all time, yes, I like it even more than the Housewives, okay maybe just slightly more. The show is simply genius and manages to captivate fans year after year with crazy twists and even crazier characters. So when it was revealed this season that some of the popular past HGs would be returning, I and others were filled with glee! However the show premiered and just two weeks in, it’s become predictable, lackluster and I find myself wishing the returning HGs had never returned. My reasons are below –

The Dick Factor – While I’m no fan of Evel Dick, he was arguably the most entertaining, combative, and explosive player on the cast this season. Matter of fact in the history of Big Brother. His return was met with cheers from both fans and non-fans of his. Love him or hate him, you knew he was going to make this season one to watch. However, Evel Dick’s run in the BB13 house was short lived. As in he had already left the house by the time the show premiered on Thursday, July 7. Even worse, ED was not replaced and instead his daughter, the slightly annoying Danielle, was given a golden key guaranteeing her safety for 4 weeks. Even much worse, no explanation was given for Dick’s departure. Seriously, the viewers deserved an explanation. It’s the least Big Brother could do after his abrupt exit.

The Returning HGs – Once again, this twist sounded great in theory but my feelings started to change once the returning HGs (Jeff and Jordan, Brendon and Rachel, Evel Dick and Danielle) actually re-entered the house. Something about the return just felt a bit like deja vu, sort of like a been there done that feeling probably because they had been there and done that. As expected, Jeff and Jordan were still as adorable as ever while Brendon and Rachel were still as annoying as ever. Evel Dick and Danielle were no longer on speaking terms which was not surprising and felt very 2007. With the returning HGs, we are missing out on the magic that came out of their first appearances. Seeing Jeff and Jordan connecting on the show, possibly falling in love was a one time deal as well as seeing Brenchel connecting on the most ridiculous things. Plus having to see Evel Dick and Danielle try to mend their relationship… again with ED carrying Dani all the way to the end… again would have been pretty boring and uneventful. And isn’t it interesting that even in ED’s absence, he’s still carrying Danielle further in the game?

The New Houseguests – This brings me to the new HGs who I now find myself rooting for at all costs. Why? Well because they are now the underdogs in the game. In addition to the fact that it’s really unfair to pit the newbies against some of the best players to play the game. After all, Jordan and ED are past winners while the other returning HGs made it pretty far in their respective seasons. While the poor newbies pretended to be excited upon hearing Julie Chen’s announcement of the twist, you could clearly see in their eyes that they were none too pleased to be sharing their season and chances at half a million dollars with others who already had their chance. And just as expected, the returning HGs banded together to form a tight alliance and have been mercilessly kicking the butts of the newbies. Let’s face it, did they ever really stand a chance? And despite the newbies being stupid, not being able to stick together, and being amateurs at the game (well this is their first time playing), it’s gotten to the point where I find myself hopelessly rooting for them, and hoping they pick off the returning HGs, even Jeff and Jordan – both of whom I happen to love, one by one.

The All Star Season? – With the return of the 6 HGs this season, what does this mean for a future BB all star season? The first and last all star season was season 7 which would lead any rational fan to believe season 14 (next year) would make the second all star season. By bringing back the HGs this year, does this mean they won’t appear on next year’s all star? Better yet, what does this twist mean for next year’s all star? Is that even in the works? As a devoted BB fan, I can only hope! As the first all star season was one of the best BB seasons yet. Can you imagine an all star season with Jeff, Jordan, Brendon, Rachel, Evel Dick, Danielle, and other great players? Now that would have been something to watch! But by bringing these players back this year, Big Brother might have inadvertently ruined what could have been a phenomenal all star season 14.

And judging from the feedback of Big Brother fans online, it seems majority of them feel the same way I do. Following Jordan’s win for HOH last Thursday, many fans started to complain about the predictability of this season.

The Reality Blurred blog summed it up best – “Dominic seems like he has some game in him, so I was disappointed when he lost HOH and Jordan won. Her win makes me significantly less interested in the next week of competition because the returnees remain in control. The show and game work best when power flips, but this win plus this season’s structure means there’s little chance of that.”

Some of the comments from BB fans on twitter are below –

“[The newbies] are more like superfans than players,” tweeted TammyRene_.

“The show is predictable b/c we’ve seen the vets play before, we knw all their moves..so it’s like wtf step ur game up newbies,” tweeted IamJerves.

Gonna be a boring week!!! I cannot take any more of Bookie,” tweeted auroralmama.

The veterans seem so bored and not very appreciative that they are there.” tweeted RHO_TWEETS.

I couldn’t agree more. Big Brother had better hope the newbies start winning some competitions if they plan on keeping me interested this season. Because quite frankly, a Big Brother 13 season in which the alums pick off the newbies one by one and end up making it to the final 5 will be awful to watch. They had their chances. The newbies deserve a fair chance as well.

The Real Housewives of Atlanta 3

Days after a report questioned whether Real Housewives of Atlanta star Nene Leakes’ “divorce” to husband Gregg Leakes was a publicity stunt for the series (they were photographed together looking cozy and trying to hide from cameras), a new report today sheds some new light on the behind the scenes taping of the RHOA as the 4th season is still filming.

The Decatur Metro blog ponders just how real the show is as the writer sat next to housewives Sheree Whitfield, Kandi Burruss and two of their friends last Thursday during a restaurant taping at Decatur’s Wahoo Grill. Below are some of the highlights of what the writer discovered –

“1. The conversation was repeatedly interrupted and guided by a crew member. The women would talk for a few minutes, then a crew member would approach the table and tell the women what to talk about. At one point, the crew member told the women they needed to switch to a light topic because they’d already spent a lot of time on serious topics.

2. When one of the crew members was leaving, one of the ‘Housewives’ said she would see him tomorrow at the ‘funeral home scene.’ If she’s calling it a ‘scene,” how ‘real’ can it be?

3. For some reason, the first taping of the women exiting the restaurant didn’t work. At the crew’s direction, the women returned to their seats, then taped a second exit scene.”

The writer also adds that most of the Atlanta housewives are driving rental cars. Very interesting report. It will be interesting to see how the 4th season of the RHOA turns out as reality shows always take a turn for the worse once the stars start faking it, example the Keeping Up With The Kardashians. This report is however not that surprising as with the exception of the Nene, all of the housewives seem to be getting along rather well. And what good is that for the drama and ratings?

I will add that this doesn’t mean all of the drama is fake (example the tour bus fight between Nene and Kim last season was very real) as it is actually very common practice for producers of reality shows to “guide” certain conversations and scenes. An example of this is let’s say some drama went down at an event between two cast members, the producers could encourage their costars to meet up the next day to talk about it. Also most of the housewives series have different production companies behind them so the practices are likely different for each series.

In other RHOA news, just weeks after giving birth to her son Kroy Jagger, Kim Zolciak has lost most if not all of her baby weight!

In pictures below, Kim, 33, shows off her post baby body! In an interview with Wetpaint, the mother of three reveals just how she lost the baby weight so quickly. Excerpts from Kim’s interview below –

We saw the recent pics of you and you look amazing! How did you drop the baby weight so quickly? What are your workout and diet secrets?

Kim Zolciak: I am unable to work out for another few weeks, although I am not BIG on going to the gym. I do think breastfeeding really helps and Kroy and I walk the baby every night.

Is there any area that you particularly want to work on?

I love my curves and really just want to firm up. My least favorite part of my body I would say are my legs. I have thicker legs then I would like and have to run to keep them in shape!

Kim also adds that she is not big on dieting and believes in eating everything in moderation. Recent photos of Kim below!

In today’s news, the Salahis continue to be awful the Salahis.

According to a new report by RadarOnline, the Real Housewives of DC alums are being sued for alleged wine tour fraud as a woman is claiming she was defrauded out of the money she paid to tour Virginia’s Wine Country.

Emily McCallum, who is filing the suit, is one of the many people who have complained that Tareq and Michelle Salahi have been operating a wine tourism company and failing to deliver. The problem began when Emily, who earned her master’s degree this year, wanted to take a wine tour with her friends and family to celebrate.

“She scheduled it with a company owned by the Salahis and paid in full,” reveals a source close to Emily. “They never showed up and at the last minute, Emily had to get another company. She’s been unable to get her money back from them. I’m really glad she’s taking them to court.”

Radar confirms that Tareq is also listed as a director for the wine tour company. The case is scheduled to be heard today at the Loudoun County (VA) General District Court. We will update this post with any new developments.

UPDATE – The case against the Salahis has been continued until August 3 at Loudoun County (VA) General District Court because their lawyer David Silek is reportedly no longer representing them.
