Holy lawsuit drama! TMZ is now reporting that Basketball Wives star Meeka Claxton has filed a lawsuit against her costar Tami Roman for assault and battery.

This all stems from a nightclub fight that took place in Rome, Italy last month. And yes this is the same fight that will be shown on the upcoming episode of the VH1 show. According to reports, things came to ahead between both ladies when Tami decided to punch Meeka in the face leading to a fist fight.

In the lawsuit filed yesterday in New York, Meeka alleges Tami “assaulted, battered, beat, threatened, menaced, attacked, jumped on, pushed to the ground, thrashed, punched, and shoved” her causing serious injury.

Meeka is seeking unspecified damages stating the incident cost her a day of filming — and put her through an emotional and physical hell. Tami has yet to respond to the lawsuit. But err does Tami have any money to pay out?

In other news, the Dancing With The Stars casting rumors continue to heat up! The latest reality star in the season 13 casting rumor mill? None other than Evelyn Lozada! TMZ is reporting the VH1 reality star is indeed in talks to do the show.

Sources connected to the show reveal, “Dancing” producers love the idea of having Evelyn on the show — especially since she’s engaged to Chad who was a previous contestant.”

Yes if Evelyn signs that dotted line, she would be following in the footsteps of her NFL fiance Chad Ochocinco who did the show last year during season 10. Chad would be able to give his fiance some tips as he actually made it to the semi-finals during his season.

The drama rages on for the Real Housewives of New York City as evident by the preview clips for the reunion!

In the first preview clip via PEOPLE.com, it is Sonja vs. Cindy part 3 that is until the perpetually cra cra Kelly Bensimon keeps inserting herself into the argument because she believes she is the “peacemaker.”

Host Andy Cohen has to break the news to her that she is NOT a peacemaker as well as her fellow Team Brunette pal Countess LuAnn. Oh yeah, the typically boring Cindy is also over dramatic in the clip in an effort to not get the axe from Bravo or something.

In the second preview clip, the delusional Kelly believes she is a nice person because Cosmo magazine rated her as one of the five nicest celebrities. Not surprising since she is a famewhore the type to kiss the butts of those in the media who can give her coverage.

Alex McCord gets into it with Kelly letting her know she is definitely not a nice person. So. much. drama! Both preview clips are below.

Part 1 of the NYC Housewives reunion is set to air Monday, July 25th at 10/9c on Bravo. Part 2 will air the following Monday on August 1.

MTV’s Lindsay Lohan equivalent Jenelle Evans is in legal hot water again.

The latest with the Teen Mom 2 star is that she recently tested positive for drug use hence she has violated her probation. She is on probation due to a drug-related conviction in April.

E! Online is reporting the 19-year-old tested positive for THC, a substance found in marijuana, on July 13. Jenelle then admitted to using the drug.

This news came as a surprise to her attorney Dustin Sullivan. “I just caught wind of this yesterday,” he said to E! News. “They sent me this violation info about an hour ago. I did not know about it prior to. Have not spoke[n] to Jenelle yet.”

The problems don’t end there for Jenelle as her probation reports also claim she failed to follow up with the recommended aftercare once released from inpatient treatment for substance abuse, and is apparently behind on court and probation supervision fees.

But the story gets even worse as TMZ posted some photos (the pics are below) of Jenelle this morning smoking what looks to be a pot-filled blunt. The photos were taken on July 17, four days after Jenelle tested positive for drug use. Wowzers.

Jenelle’s probation violation hearing has been set for Aug. 24.

Big Brother 13 Keith

It was a classic case of playing too hard too quickly, or was it more his cockiness? Either way, Keith Henderson found himself the first houseguest to be voted out of Big Brother season 13.

Keith’s elimination came as a complete surprise to him as he was so confident about his safety to the point that he decided to throw the veto competition… during the first week of the game. In a new interview with TV Guide, the 32-year-old youth pastor reveals what he would have done differently, who he thinks voted him out, and answers if he is a hypocrite for, you know, being a youth pastor and a horndog. Excerpts from Keith’s interview below –

TVGuide.com: Why did you choose to partner with Porsche?
Keith:
Porsche is hot. She is also a physical competitor. [And] I thought she would be able to manipulate the guys. “Keith’s Angels” was still in the back of my mind when I picked her.

TVGuide.com: Can you better explain how your “Keith’s Angels” strategy was supposed to work? Do you think it would have worked if not for the “dynamic duos” twist?
Keith:
Yes, it would have worked. The strategy was to align with three girls [and] use the girls to manipulate the guys — play with emotion, lie, get the blood on their hands — until we eliminated all of the guys and it was just us left.

TVGuide.com: So do you regret throwing the veto competition?
Keith:
I do regret throwing it because my alliance didn’t have my back!

TVGuide.com: Right, you told Julie after your eviction that you “got played.” Who do you think voted against you?
Keith:
[I think] Dominic and Cassi voted against me. [Ed. note: Shelly and Kalia were the deciding votes. Both Dominic and Cassi voted to evict Porsche.] I wasn’t surprised. I figured it out a day in advance when I told them to tell the veterans how we were voting and they wouldn’t do it.

TVGuide.com: Some people might think it’s odd or hypocritical for a Deacon to be so actively chasing after women…
Keith
: It’s not odd or hypocritical. I am a single guy, and I firmly believe that God wants us to find our wife. How can I find one if I am not actively looking?

Judging from the interview, it appears Keith is still being sequestered despite his eviction aka the Big Brother producers might be planning a twist to bring back one of the evicted HGs.

Tonight, a live episode of Big Brother airs on CBS at 9/8c during which another HG will be evicted. On the chopping block are Cassie and Shelly, and it is not looking good for Cassie as Shelly is working with the alum alliance in addition to the fact that Rachel is jealous of not a fan of Cassie. Whatever happens with the eliminations, here’s to hoping one of the newbies will win HOH tonight bringing some excitement and unpredictability to the game. I will admit this week hasn’t been all that bad with Rachel‘s antics and Dominic winning the POV.

It appears bitter exes Camille Grammer and Kelsey Grammer have been able to reach a custody agreement… for now.

According to a new report by TMZ,  Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Camille and ex-husband Kelsey recently settled their very nasty custody dispute but make no mistake as the two are still at war. The reason? Sources state the new deal is only temporary.

The new agreement outlines who gets the kids, when and where, etc. Camille will have both kids more than Kelsey, but the agreement accommodates his work schedule. Also, the kids will not be separated.

If you recall, a letter from Kelsey’s attorney mysteriously leaked online earlier this year which showed Kelsey wanted the son to stay with him while their daughter remained with Camille. Kelsey’s attorney accused Camille of leaking the document to TMZ. It also came out last month that Camille accused Kelsey’s older daughter Spencer Grammer of being a spy and asked a judge to ban her from vacationing in one of her homes with Kelsey.

The exes will now look to settle their other lingering issues such as money and permanent custody. Camille is reportedly bitter at the way Kelsey has treated her and the kids, while Kelsey is angry because he feels Camille has been disrespectful to his new wife. Oh the joys of divorce.

dancing with the stars 13

It’s that time again folks! As we near the 13th season premiere of Dancing With The Stars, the casting rumors have began!

According to the latest issue of UsWeekly magazine, being considered for the upcoming season are reality stars Snooki and Rob Kardashian, alongside talented celebrity/singer/actress Christina Milian.

Sources reveal that Jersey Shore star Snooki, 23, is in talks to do the show! In addition to the Snooks, Kim Kardashian’s little brother Rob, 24, is also in discussions with the network. “Rob is such a low-key guy, so it would be interesting to see if he’d come out of his shell,” Kris Jenner a source says. Rob would be following in the footsteps of his sister Kimmie who did the show back in 2008 and was voted off during week 3.

As for R&B singer Christina, 29, a source says, “She’s a possibility!” Also a possibility? Boxer Mike Tyson, 45, “is being considered,” according to a second insider. Ai ya ya. Should be an interesting season!

The new season of DWTS is set to premiere September 19 on ABC.

In today’s Real Housewives of New Jersey news, a local NJ store owner is accusing Kathy Wakile’s husband Rich Wakile of bullying him around.

Ed Bergan, owner of the Something Sophisticated clothing store in Franklin Lakes, New Jersey did a photo shoot with Rich and his son Joseph to help promote his store after they reached out to him. In exchange, they received some free shirts (two shirts apiece).

That all sounds good enough. However some drama ensued when according to Ed, Rich decided he didn’t get enough free shirts (the polo shirts retail for close to $100 a piece) and had his assistant send the store a scathing email, demanding they stop using Rich’s image to promote the store.

In the email, which was sent to Reality Tea, an assistant for both Kathy and Rich writes, “Richard and Joseph lending themselves to your shop for a photo shoot is definitively much more of a benefit to you than it is to them… I feel it is totally of bad taste and disrespectful not only to give both Richard and Joseph a limit of two items that they could take from your shop.”

The email continues, “Two shirts at a price point of a total for maybe $100 in exchange for all that associated your shop with both Richard and Joseph is not at all being thankful nor grateful for whom they are. Richard and his family are already established brands.” Wowzers.

To end the email, the assistant Leslie Mota then demands the store immediately stop using the Wakiles’ images for any promotion. “I must regretfully inform you that we are not allowing the pictures to be used by you, your shop and/or photographer in anyway. We are not authorizing you to use them for the purpose of promoting your business and/or clothes line.”

The store owner first relayed the story to Tom Murro of Celebritymagnet.com, who was there visiting the store with new couple Kim Granatell and Michael Lohan. Yes the two are reportedly now dating. Tom adds that the store however has other supporters in the form of the Manzo brothers, and as for Kim G., she was “disgusted beyond words” upon hearing the store owner’s story.

The Wakiles have yet to respond to this story. In their defense, these are the words of their assistant… though the assistant was likely doing their bidding. A screen shot of the entire email is below plus a photo of Kim G. and Michael Lohan at the store.

Meanwhile, a week after writing the following on her blog – “It’s getting harder and harder to keep the girls from reading the outrageous headlines when we’re in the store,” Teresa Giudice once again graces the cover of In Touch magazine while granting them yet another interview! The cover story this time around? “I’m Terrified of Being Poor.”

Teresa is pictured on the cover with one of her daughters which brings up a point made by one of our readers, Frankswif3y, who questioned in a recent comment if Teresa is using images of her kids to gain public sympathy. In looking at her five recent In Touch covers, she is pictured with her daughters on four of those covers. But we’ll let you be the judge. The latest cover is below.
