Days after she filed for divorce following two months of marriage, a new report now states Kim Kardashian is truly in shock over the public and very well deserved backlash she is receiving!

And why wouldn’t there be a public backlash? After all, the Keeping Up With The Kardashians star pocketed a reported $17 million from her extravagant sham wedding!

A source close to Kimmie tells RadarOnline, “Kim is absolutely numb and was truly surprised and shocked at the backlash she has gotten since she decided to file for divorce.”

In fact, Kim, who has spent the week in Australia snapping pics with fans and promoting her new Kardashian Handbag line with sister Khloe Kardashian, has now decided to cancel the remainder of her public appearances in order to pretend she is mourning the demise of her marriage!

“I am very disappointed that I am unable to attend the Swisse marquee, but I hope to come back and work with the Swisse team at another point in time,” Kim said. She continued, “I love our fan base out here. Of course I do really want some time to myself and it has been tough. But I didn’t wanna bail on everyone and, you know, skip out on this commitment.” Kim was reportedly set to receive $150,000 for that appearance.

According to TMZ, Kim is telling friends she is so “distraught” over the divorce and wave of publicity that followed that she decided to bail on her Australian appearances and return to the U.S. Apparently this is the first time she’s ever missed “work” and is saying she just couldn’t handle it. Poor poor Kimmie Kakes.

Kim is quoted as saying: “I need to take care of me now, and I can’t work for awhile.” TMZ adds that it’s unclear if Kim will also be putting the brakes on her reality show, or whether she’ll simply be more selective as to what she does and doesn’t do in the near future.

And when it comes to Kim’s $2 million engagement ring, pimpmomager Kris Jenner is making it crystal clear Kim will NOT be returning it! You know, despite being only married for 72 days.

During her appearance on Good Morning America today to promote her new book All Things Kardashian, Kris was asked if Kim is planning to give back the 20.5-carat Lorraine Schwartz diamond engagement ring (estimated at $2 million) Kris Humphries gave to her back in June. Her response? “I hate an Indian giver. It’s a gift. Keep your gift,” said Kris. Wowzers. In fact Kris is now receiving some backlash from Native American organizations for her “Indian giver” comment.

As for the jilted husband Kris, remember him? Kim has stopped following him on Twitter while he continues to follow her. In fact, Kris was photographed smiling and wearing his wedding ring on Monday morning in Minnesota while Kim was in L.A. filing for divorce. As we have reported, Kris found out about the divorce through TMZ.

Kris has also been lying low since the divorce filing and even canceled a scheduled Las Vegas appearance for this weekend. If only Kimmie had the same tact

TELL US – DO YOU BELIEVE KIM CANCELED HER APPEARANCES BECAUSE SHE IS “DISTRAUGHT” OR IS IT DUE TO THE PUBLIC BACKLASH? SHOULD SHE KEEP THE RING?

They’re back! Fresh off the cast’s European excursion to Florence, Italy — MTV has announced it will be kicking off the new year with an all new season of Jersey Shore!

Yes, America’s favorite drunken hotmesses housemates will return to Seaside Heights, NJ, when season five of the MTV hit series premieres on Thursday, January 5, 2012 (10/9c).

Back on their home turf and excited to be in their natural habitat, “the cast hits the ground running to get their “G.T.L” regimen back on schedule while also dealing with their evolving group dynamic amidst the tensions and hookup rumors left over from their time in Florence.”

To mark the special occasion, MTV also released a preview clip for the new season which features DJ Pauly D recovering from a tanning accident after burning his face when trying to get his skin tanned. He was trying to correct the paleness he suffered while in Italy. The rest of the cast is also shown as they prepare to hit their favorite club Karma.

As we reported, the cast began filming season 5 immediately following their return from filming season 4 in Italy. They did not get a break which in turn led to some more drama, such as Vinny Guadagnino quitting the show, only to return days later.

The preview clip is below!

TELL US – ARE YOU EXCITED ABOUT THE NEW SEASON OR OVER THE SERIES? THOUGHTS ON THE PREVIEW?

The third season of the Real Housewives of New Jersey might be officially over, but boy oh boy the off-screen drama is still raging! All thanks to Teresa Giudice, who is slamming, and we mean SLAMMING her costars in her latest Bravo blog.

It was open season on the RHONJ cast as Teresa managed to take some serious shots at everyone including her shocking revelation that she wishes her brother Joe Gorga had married someone other than Melissa Gorga! Seriously, who says this publicly? Something tells us Teresa will write another blog next week insisting she is all about family was just joking and meant no harm!

Teresa also called Caroline Manzo a liar and Jacqueline Laurita a “lunatic.” Below are excerpts from Tre’s blog –

Teresa Makes It Clear She IS The Victim In All Of This

“I had no idea Melissa and Kathywould come to the reunion for Season 3 with guns blazing. They had made little lists of how I hurt them, they were throwing jabs at me all over the place. First I was confused, because it didn’t make sense. In real life, we’ve gotten over all that tit-for-tat stuff, so I didn’t know why they were bringing it up again. Second, I didn’t see how it made sense for the Season 3 reunion when we all just made up. Why don’t Melissa and Kathy want to show our family as happy and reunited for even one week? It makes me so sad.” Why is she shocked to see Melissa and Kathy Wakile bring up all their issues during the reunion? Earth to Teresa, that’s what the reunion is for!

Teresa Calls Caroline A Liar, Denies Causing Feud With Dina

“At the reunion, Caroline accused me of lying, and I accused her of the same thing. It’s a she-said-she-said, so you’re going to have to believe whomever you want to believe. I’m not perfect, but for Caroline to act like she always tells the truth is insane. Caroline is so good at making up fairy tales about her life, I think she’s forgotten what she said yesterday… I am not responsible for coming between her and Dina. I know a bit about why they aren’t speaking right now, but it’s not my business, and unlike Caroline, I don’t believe it’s my place to judge or to air their dirty laundry to the world.” Umm Didn’t she air their dirty laundry to the world by revealing Caroline backstabbed Dina during the reunion?

Teresa Claims Caroline Called Gia “Tragic”

She has the gall to say my “indirect” comments about a stripper carwash were hurtful to her son. when a) they were about MY children and b) last I checked, they were all proud of that particular career path of Chris’. And then she spends thirty minutes bashing my ten-year-old daughter, screaming that Gia is “tragic”?” What reunion show did she watch? Caroline did NOT bash Gia or call her tragic.

Teresa Wishes Joey Had Married Someone Else

“Family is everything to me. If my only brother was married to someone who didn’t crave the spotlight, I know we’d all be a family like we always were. Before that christening — the first time Joey and Melissa filmed the show — my family had never, EVER been through any kind of drama even close to this. If I could go back in time, I would gladly give Melissa my spot on the first season so she could live out her dreams, and I would be happy to sit on the couch and cheer her on, with my happy, intact family around me.” Well Teresa, it’s not too late. You can always refuse to film for season 4 for the sake of your family… but oh wait!

Teresa Calls Jacquline a “Lunatic”

“Oh and one more thing, despite the ravings of a lunatic on Twitter (once again) I do not have anything to do with magazines writing bad stories about me or anyone else. If I did, you would see me quoted in those magazines, which you don’t. But I would never do that because it’s not my style. I’m too busy living my life to worry about other people who don’t have a life. I don’t have a “contract” with any magazine for cover stories — that’s just crazy, it doesn’t even exist.” No word yet on how she managed to grace the In Touch Weekly cover 7 times in a span of 3 months — granting them exclusive interviews and photo shoots. Surely there was no agreement in place!

And folks, the above is the reason I could never be a fan of Tre. She is mean, nasty, very vindictive and fights dirty. What was the point of this blog? Over a week after the reunion aired? Does she ever take responsibility for anything she does? Teresa also denied she ever told Caroline and Jacqueline not to film with Melissa and Kathy, but our RHONJ insider tells us she absolutely did, adding that Teresa even told others NOT involved with the show not to compliment Melissa on anything. Not saying the other RHONJ cast members are saints, but Teresa definitely takes the cake!

As for Melissa, she of course responded to Tre’s comments on Twitter. “Family Is everything? Then stop blogging & putting out stories, apparently public opinion means more. Actions speak louder than words. Sad,” tweeted Melissa. “Finally admits she wishes her brother would have married someone else that she could walk on… I’m sorry, but it’s so hard being on a reality show with someone so out of touch with reality,” added Melissa.

Joe Gorga was also none too happy about his sister’s comments. Joe tweeted: “I’m sick, wish she could just love my family & stop trying to tear us apart. Fact. this was way before the show, the show is her excuse,” later adding, “If she never wrote it I wouldn’t have to respond… always has to stir things up when they are quiet.”

TELL US – IS IT TIME FOR TERESA TO SHUT UP OR ARE HER COMMENTS JUSTIFIED? WHOSE SIDE ARE YOU ON?

Lisa Vanderpump
Move over Kim Zolciak, Simon Van Kempen, and Melissa Gorga there is a new singing Bravo housewife on the block!

In a complete shocker, Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Brit Lisa Vanderpump has released her first music single! Who knew Lisa could sing?

The first single from Lisa, 51, made its debut on Ryan Seacrest’s radio show this week and it is a remake of Carole King’s “Will You Still Love Me Tomorrow?”

Lisa added her own reggae twist to the remake which was recorded with her friend and music legend Lionel Richie.

Lisa however insisted to Ryan that the song is just for fun and that she doesn’t plan on releasing any more singles unless this one takes off and becomes a hit!

“It’s just a different play on an old classic, and he liked the vocal, and so, there we have it,” Lisa said. “I think that’s the only song, I’ll ever make.”

So is Lisa’s song HOT or NOT? We’ll let you be the judge! Below is Lisa’s first single! The actual song starts around the 5:10 mark.

It’s the morning after the divorce filing heard around the world and America is still trying to pick up the pieces, you know, after realizing they have been bamboozled!

Just to bring you up to date, Kim Kardashian, 31, married NBA player Kris Humphries, 26, back in August after only 9 months of dating. Kimmie Kakes pocketed over $17 million from the wedding only to file for divorce a mere 72 days/10 weeks/2.5 months later!

Fast forward to today, and Kim, star of Keeping Up With The Kardashians, is on the receiving end of some major criticism while most media outlets are simply trying to figure out what went wrong.

According to TMZ, who first broke the divorce news yesterday to both the public and Kris, reported those close to Kim are claiming she truly agonized over her decision to file for divorce and went back and forth this weekend. That agony is clearly evident in Kimmie’s last tweet from Monday morning, you know, the same one she used to promote her newest Kardashian store!

Sources close to Kim tell TMZ she didn’t make her final decision to file for divorce until Sunday night and that she cried all weekend as she kept going back and forth on whether or not to file. Perhaps if one is having this much doubt after only 10 weeks of marriage they should have held off on filing!? Something tells me Kimmie was already picturing the publicity and magazine covers!

As for why Kim decided to file on Monday, it was because hubby Kris wanted to hire a Hollywood publicist over the weekend. Kim reportedly told one of her friends, “He’s not in f**king Hollywood. He plays sports.” Oh the irony of a famewhore divorcing her husband over being an alleged famewhore!

Yes, those close to Kim are now claiming she went through with the divorce because she now suspects Kris was simply in it for the fame. TMZ reports Kim’s friends are scoffing at Kris’ claims that he simply wanted a simple life with Kim in Minnesota. They’re saying he’s full of BS because once the marriage fell apart he immediately started “chasing fame.”

Camp Kim claims that once the couple started talking about the possibility of divorce last week, Kris went into full Hollywood mode, and started talking about “branding” the Kris Humphries name with cologne, nightclub appearances and what not. Not quite seeing the big deal with that but let’s continue!

Camp Kim also claims Kris was pushing to keep their connection going whether they ended their marriage or not which apparently threw up red flags with Kim. They, however, claim the breaking point for Kim was Kris’ decision to hire a Hollywood publicist over the weekend to work on his image. Why would this be such a bother to her??? Sounds like Camp Kim is grasping at straws here!

The HollywoodLife also has their take on things stating Kim decided to end her marriage after Kris decided to quit filming for Kim’s E! reality show Kourtney and Kim Take New York.

“Kim and Kris got into a huge fight last week because Kris told Kim he was sick of the cameras following him around and that he had had enough,” said a Kardashian family insider. “Kris said the reality show was ruining their marriage and it obviously took its toll on their relationship. But for Kim, it was the last straw. Kris had promised her that he would be on the show and that he was OK with all the cameras. Now that he is pulling out, Kim is throwing in the towel. She has had enough as well. They were only married for 72 days. Basically, the marriage should never have happened. There was too much of an emphasis on the wedding TV special rather than on their actual relationship. I think Kim was more in love with the whole idea of the wedding than she was in love with Kris.”

The insider also claims Kris isn’t the nice guy he’s portraying himself to be adding that he would always threaten Kim with a divorce. “Kris has been getting nastier and nastier and has been threatening Kim,” the source claims. “He has basically given her an ultimatum, ‘Move to Minnesota with me or I will dump you!’ This is really immature behavior. I honestly don’t know why they got married in the first place. They are so different.” The source goes on to state the obvious adding that “Kris was in over his head and Kim was so desperate to get married.”

Following the backlash from the public yesterday, as we predicted, Kim’s sisters Kourtney Kardashian and Khloe Kardashian took to their twitter pages to defend their sister. Khloe tweeted, “Reading some these comments r so hurtful. Im grateful 4our fans who understand & r being respectful. Hate is disgusting. Love is everything.” Kourtney also tweeted: “Our sister is going through a difficult time but we’re a close family and are sticking together like always.”

Kim and Kris both released statements yesterday and in Kris’ statement he makes it clear he still wants to work on his marriage to Kim, stating he is “committed to this marriage” and “willing to do whatever it takes to make it work.”

When it comes to the criticism, Kimmie remains the butt of jokes both by the media and the public. The twitter topic #ThingsLongerThanKimsMarriage has been the top trending topic on twitter for over 24 hours. And many in the media are now speculating on whether the marriage was ever even real, and well, just check out today’s cover of the NY Post below!

As for Kim, she has dipped out of the country and was photographed (below) at the LAX on Monday night boarding a flight to Australia with Khloe. The two are headed there to promote their new Kardashian handbag line.

A masseuse was also spotted outside of Kimmie’s LA mansion yesterday bringing a massage table into her home. That poor little rich Kimmie…

Jersey Shore fans saw a drift this season between BFFs JWoww and Snooki, and according to a new report, the two are no longer on speaking terms.

The current issue of In Touch Weekly magazine is reporting that Jenni “JWoww” Farley, 25, is no longer talking to her former BFF Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi, 23. The reason? JWoww has had it with Snooki’s behavior — mostly her drunken antics.

The mag adds that JWoww has also felt cast aside by Snooki in recent months, since Snooki’s “controlling” boyfriend Jionni LaValle came into the picture. Snooki has reportedly become one of those needy girls that ditch their friends to be with their guy 24/7.

Making matters worse, JWoww’s boyfriend, Roger Williams, hates being around Snooki and Jionni. “Roger and Jionni have never hit it off — so the girls never double date,” explains a source.

Yet the biggest reason is that JWoww is simply fed up with Snooki. The antics she once loved now irritate her. “JWoww is so sick of Snooki’s drunken behavior. She has a quiet domestic life with Roger and doesn’t want the drama,” a source says.

Unfortunately for the two former BFFs, this poses a major problem for MTV. See, as we reported a while back, JWoww and Snooki have been given their own spin-off by MTV, which is supposed to feature them living in a house together… as BFFs. But now “producers are stumped about what to do, since the girls refuse to get a place together,” says a source. Ai ya ya.

The source adds that as long as Snooki’s beau Jionni remains in the picture, it’s highly unlikely JWoww will make up with the Snooks. “They’re practically strangers now,” the source says. You can read more about this in the latest issue of In Touch Weekly.

TELL US – THOUGHTS ON THIS REPORT? SAD OR SURPRISED ABOUT THE DEMISE OF THIS FRIENDSHIP?

It was Halloween night on Dancing With The Stars but nothing too scary happened as the stars put on their best performances this season!

The stakes were high Monday night as each of the six contestants had to perform two dances each — one with their professional partners and a team dance with two other couples. The team-dance score was then applied to each couple in the group.

Coming in first place for the 5th time this season was Ricki Lake despite a rib injury. Ricki received a score of 27 for her paso doble with partner Derek Hough, before going on to perform another Paso Doble dance with her group. The group included Ricki, Rob Kardashian and Hope Solo. ‘Team Paso’ received a score of 26!

The biggest surprise of the night was Rob Kardashian, who gave his best performance of the season the same day his big sis Kim Kardashian filed for divorce. Rob received a good score of 25 for his sizzling tango to the “Addams Family” theme song with partner Cheryl Burke. “Rob, your best dance so far,” said judge Carrie Ann Inaba. Backstage, Rob spoke out about Kimmie’s divorce, stating: “We’re here to support her, whatever she does.”

Landing in last place was news anchor Nancy Grace. Nancy earned an okay score of 21 for her lackluster jive. “This wasn’t a good dance for you,” said judge Len Goodman. “It was a disappointment for me.” Nancy earned another 23 points for her group dance with war veteran J.R. Martinez and actor David Arquette.

Below are the full scores from last night including the solo dance and group dance:

Ricki Lake & Derek Hough: (27, 26) 53
Rob Kardashian & Cheryl Burke: 25, 26) 51
Maks Chmerkovskiy & Hope Solo: (24, 26) 50
J.R. Martinez & Karina Smirnoff: (25, 23) 48
David Arquette & Kym Johnson: (24, 23) 47
Nancy Grace & Tristan MacManus: (21, 23) 44

The results show airs tonight on ABC (9/8c) during which another celeb will be sent packing!
