Weeks after it was reported Emily Maynard was very close to signing on as the next Bachelorette, a new report now confirms it’s a done deal!

Bachelor insider Reality Steve broke the news this morning that Emily, 25, has officially signed on for the ABC hit show.

The single mother of 6-year-old Ricki first captured the heart of fans with her tragic story of how she lost her fiancé and father of her daughter, race car driver Ricky Hendrick, in a plane crash back in 2004 while she was pregnant.

Things appeared to be looking up for Emily after Brad Womack picked her on his Bachelor season and proposed. However, like every other Bachelor relationship that came before them, their relationship ultimately failed.

There’s no word yet on when ABC plans to make the official announcement though it will likely be after Ben Flajnik’s Bachelor season ends. Filming on Emily’s Bachelorette season will reportedly begin in March.

Reality Steve also adds that the likely selling point for Emily, who had stated in the past that she wasn’t interested in doing the show, might be the fact that ABC has agreed to film the new season in her hometown of Charlotte, North Carolina. This is a first and has never been done before in the history of the Bachelorette.

TELL US – THOUGHTS ON EMILY BEING THE NEXT BACHELORETTE?

Oh goody. The wedding between Evelyn Lozada and Chad Ochocinco is back on! You know, just in case you cared.

Just a week after TMZ broke the news that Evelyn, star of Basketball Wives, had put the wedding on hold over suspicions of Chad cheating, TMZ is now reporting all is well between the couple!

So why did Evelyn have a change of heart? Well, apparently Chad had to do a lot of begging. Sources tell TMZ that Chad broke down last week and apologized. Chad reportedly told Evelyn he would do whatever it took to win her back and even suggested couple’s counseling for the two.

Evelyn is said to have agreed and the couple are now seeking help to work out their trust issues. So wait, does this mean Chad is pretty much acknowledging that he cheated? Because if he didn’t cheat, why would he be groveling and suggesting counseling???

Anyhoo, Evelyn also spoke out through her rep, telling TMZ: “The strain from both our busy schedules started to take a serious toll on our relationship. Yet after spending some much needed quality time together, Chad and I are in a good space.”

Okay then. Meanwhile, Evelyn’s costar Tami Roman posted a topless photo of herself this week on her Facebook page. The reason? It’s an anti-fur ad for PETA even though she’s not officially associated with PETA. Tami wrote: “Even though this ad was not done in affiliation with PETA, I hope to have the opportunity to work with them to further the cause of animal rights in the future.”

The topless photo of Tami is below!

Moving on to Basketball Wives LA star Imani Showalter, who took to her Twitter page days ago to show off her weight loss and bikini body!

The mother of three tweeted bikini photos of her new slimmer body in a sexy leopard print Victoria’s Secret bathing suit! “Ok y’all this is the the winner for my St. Barths trip,” wrote Imani. The bikini photos of Imani are below!

Attention eligible bachelors, Kate Gosselin is still single and available!

Weeks after a report stated the former Kate Plus 8 star had a new beau in her life, Kate is now denying she is seeing anyone.

Talking to OK! magazine, Kate, 36, dismisses the gossip as “fabricated and totally false.” She stressed: “Unless my running shoes, kitchen utensils or wrapping paper are considered ‘dates,’ I have not been on any.” Aww poor Katie! At least she has her bodyguard Steve Neild to err, you know, “protect” her!

The mother of eight is, however, keeping her chin up as she reflects on the year 2011 and reveals her resolutions for the New Year in her latest blog for Couponcabin.com.

“The main thing that the end of a year causes me to do is to reflect on what I’ve learned that year,” wrote Kate. “The year of 2011 for me was a year of gaining complete independence, and learning to look for solutions in every situation instead of focusing on the problems.”

“I don’t typically make New Year’s resolutions because I’m not one to make drastic changes just for the sake of making them or just because the calendar starts over,” blogged Kate before going on to share her super exciting resolutions! And no, stop being the b-word wasn’t one of them! “However, I do aim for certain things as I organize and prioritize my life all year long. For example, I make goals to fix or finish certain projects around the house, goals for giving the kids certain life experiences and fitness and career goals for myself.”

Kate reflects more on what she learned in the last year: “I also learned to step back and survey the situation before acting on something. For the most part, this has worked and overall I feel more peaceful and more confident that I can handle whatever life throws at me. I’ve also noticed my kids are becoming problem solvers, too, which is very encouraging!”

She adds, “I’ve always said that I don’t live apologetically; I live passionately! A great way to do that is to learn from the past and make it better in the future.”

And finally, the mom of eight also recently revealed she wants back on TV her own fitness show!

Last weekend, Kate took to her Twitter page to let fans know that her own fitness show would be a dream come true! “A fitness show would be a dream come true,” tweeted Kate, who recently ran a marathon. “Not for me only but a way to reach ALL moms who desire fitness but don’t know how!”

No word yet on whether or not her plus 8 would make cameos on the said fitness show.

According to a new report, Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Kim Richards has left rehab… for realz this time.

UsWeekly broke the news moments ago with a source telling the mag “Kim is doing well.”  If you recall, Kim tried to leave rehab about two weeks ago, before the end of her 30 day stay, but the 47-year-old was ultimately convinced to stay. UsWeekly also reported back then that Kim was being “defiant” in rehab.

RadarOnline is also confirming the news. “Kim is out of rehab and staying in a hotel in Beverly Hills,” a source reveals. Kim’s sister Kyle Richards came out last week denying reports which stated Kim would be moving in with her after rehab.

This news comes as a bit of a surprise as Kim was supposed to stay at the Betty Ford Center until February. Kim’s early exit means she spent about 40 days or less in rehab. Perhaps it’s just me but Kim’s problems looked pretty severe on the show and I can’t help but wonder if 40 days was really enough to help kick her addiction issues. Here’s to hoping it was.

Moving on to the RHOBH reunion which was filmed last Thursday. It is being confirmed by the Wetpaint blog that Kim was indeed absent from the reunion. “Her presence was missed,” a show insider tells Wetpaint. “But that’s okay. Her recovery takes priority over the show and everyone is happy she’s getting the help she needs.”

Other reunion secrets revealed includes the fact that taping took all day. “They didn’t get out until just before 9 p.m.,” says the insider. “It was their longest reunion taping yet.” And yes Brandi Glanville and Dana Wilkey were both in attendance. However, the insider states that Bravo was very upset with Brandi over her publicity stunt/Las Vegas wedding last weekend and took out a little revenge on her.

LISA’S FORMER HOUSEMATE CEDRIC MARTINEZ SPILLS RHOBH SECRETS!

“Brandi was told to come really, really early,” the insider tells Wetpaint. “She arrived way before anyone else in the cast. Then, the producers just made her sit there and wait. She waited for hours. I think it was their way of messing with her.”

Also, Bravo did not shy away from Russell Armstrong’s suicide according to the report. “Each of the women was asked if they wanted to say anything about it,” reveals the insider. “Most of them shared their own thoughts.”

So can we expect some fireworks from the reunion? According to RadarOnline, that answer is NO. Bummer! “All of the main issues were addressed during the taping,” the source said. “But other than Brandi yelling there weren’t any huge fights.” The source adds, “Brandi was out of control… She was swearing at the other women and being obnoxious.”

Andy Cohen spoke out on the reunion and Taylor Armstrong in a new interview with ET Online. According to Andy, Taylor “didn’t shed a tear” at the reunion taping. “She is coming from a place of strength and recovery now,” he adds.

Andy also denies Bravo is to blame for Russell’s suicide stating he believes “personal and financial crisis” and a change in his medications contributed to his demise. Andy brings up a valid point when he cites that Russell’s business partner also took his own life.

“This was a man who signed up to be on a second season of a show,” Andy said in defense of the RHOBH. “This was a man that had expressed to producers that the first season of the show was very good for his business.”

The RHOBH season 2 finale will air on January 23, and the reunion will air January 30. There’s no word yet on whether this will be a one or two part reunion.

Moving on to tonight’s all the new episode of the RHOBH. On the 18th episode this season titled ‘A Day Late, An Apology Short,’ “Kim and her new beau finally arrive in Hawaii. Yet there’s trouble in paradise: They miss most of the activities and Kyle at long last confronts her sister about her bizarre behavior.”

The episode airs at 9/8c and a preview clip is below!

Uh oh. According to a new report, Love & Hip Hop’s star Chrissy Lampkin might just have the sketchiest past out of all her costars!

It’s no wonder Chrissy, reported to be age 42, ended up with rapper Jim Jones as she has apparently spent her entire life chasing after bad boys.

The report by the DiaryofaHollywoodStreetKing blog alleges that Chrissy has been hustling since age 15 and has even dated very infamous drug dealers such as drug kingpin Alpo Martinez and his partner Rich Porter. Chrissy is also said to have slept with rapper Jay Z at the age of 23 as well as some NBA players. Wowzers. Below is the report:

“Chrissy has been hustling since she was 15 years old. She’s now 42, and she’s been using her p*ssy to get Gucci and gold.

Chrissy and her crew were involved in different crimes like credit card schemes, shoplifters, mules from NYC to D.C. They were setting up dudes to get robbed. Chrissy has dated dope boys like the infamous drug kingpin Alpo Martinez and his partner Rich Porter also three New York Knick players. She even slept with Jay Z when he was 23 years old.

Chrissy’s last trick/sponsor/boyfriend cheated on her with a popular video hoe. Chrissy decided to rob him for $32,000 then she ran to Miami to shop and have fun on his dime. Then dude and his crew tracked Chrissy down. The Nicca knocked out her front teeth and in return Chrissy had her peeps send him a message that if he does not pay for her dental bill and buy her breast implants he’s going to get hit with the Rico Act. Dude paid all Chrissy’s bills and that was the end of her and street dudes.

Chrissy took her skills to reality television hoping her broke rapper boyfriend will help her to continue to live a easy lifestyle.”

Very interesting as Chrissy has criticized costar Kimbella Vanderhee for admitting she slept with rapper Fabolous while dating another rapper Juelz Santana. I guess it’s okay for Chrissy to do the same as long as it’s kept under wraps.

Do I believe this report? Absolutely — I had pretty much heard the same from other reliable sources last year. Plus, Jim has mentioned in a previous interview that he always had a crush on Chrissy before he started dating her a.k.a. Chrissy was “well known” on the scene.

Moving on to Erica Mena, who’s sketchy past also continues to make headlines. Following her fight with Kimbella weeks ago, which she totally instigated, Erica claimed VH1 depicted her in a way that was not classy and detrimental to her “modeling” career.

However, it turns out Erica’s reputation was already tainted way before VH1 came along as TheYBF blog posted an excerpt from a book written by rapper Prodigy — one of the members of rap duo Mobb Deep.

The book alleges that back in the day Erica used to “date” Havoc of Mobb Deep, but after a few drinks in the VIP room one night, she allowed Prodigy to err, how do I put this, get “some finger action.” The excerpt from Prodigy’s 2011 book My Infamous is posted below! As well as some old photos from Erica’s clASSY modeling past!

Poor Erica is definitely not winning lately as Kimbella also revealed last week that Erica was found stripping in the Valley and giving blow jobs for $200. Erica’s rep (she has a rep???) is, however, denying the whorish reports about her client stating Erica was never tagged team by Mobb Deep.

A new episode of Love & Hip Hop airs at 8/7c tonight on VH1. Yandy Smith and Chrissy will get into a major blowout! Must say I’m rooting for Yandy tonight as I feel Chrissy has simply become a bully this season, and seems to have a problem with everyone.

Poor Ashley Hebert, the former Bachelorette continues to get dissed even months after her show ended!

The latest diss comes from Ben Flajnik, as the new Bachelor takes a not so subtle shot at the woman who turned down his proposal in a new interview with UsWeekly.

When asked what his biggest lesson was as a contestant on Ashley’s Bachelorette season, Ben replies: “To be open to surprises. When I first got to The Bachelorette, I wasn’t too enthralled with Ashley being the girl, but as time went on, it worked pretty well. It’s important to look past some of those initial reactions.” Wow.

The isn’t the first instance of Ben being a jerk as he also reportedly dissed Jennifer Love Hewitt after his infamous date with her last year. Sources revealed back then that Ben told friends he found her to be a bit crazy during their date and was not interested in a second date with her.

CLICK HERE FOR BEN FLAJNIK’S SPOILERS & TO SEE HIS FIANCE!

When it comes to his ideal type, Ben reveals he loves “a passionate, confident woman. Someone I can take to a party and look at across the room and smile, and know she’s got this. I’m more attracted to brunettes, but then I never find myself dating them, which is weird. And I’m a total leg and butt guy.” Good to know Ben!

Moving on to Monica Spannbauer, who has quickly become the most controversial contestant on Ben’s season, well next to the super cray/emotional Jenna, all thanks to her antics on the show.

On Monday’s premiere episode, Monica paid very little attention to Ben and instead spent most of her night flirting with fellow contestant Blakeley Shea. This led to a ton of speculation that Monica is perhaps more interested in the ladies than the boring Ben!

While the contestants are not allowed to do interviews until they are eliminated from the show, Monica’s stepmother Sherry Ekberg, is now defending her via an interview with Star Magazine.

According to stepmom Sherry, Monica is not gay or bisexual, and blames alcohol for her steamy advance towards Blakeley. Monica could be seen telling Blakeley: “You’re beautiful; you’re amazing.”

Sherry tells Star that the show’s producers “really like to keep [the contestants] intoxicated, so anything can happen at that point… they keep them a little looped up.” Sherry adds that Monica isn’t “too pleased” with the way she was portrayed on Monday’s season premiere.

“They… portrayed her as something she’s not,” Sherry said. “Sometimes they’ll do anything they can for the publicity — that’s probably the only reason it’s on the show.” All righty then Monica’s stepmom!

A new episode of The Bachelor airs tonight on ABC at 8/7c.

Cedric Martinez, former houseboy housemate of Lisa Vanderpump simply refuses to go away!

The latest by Cedric is an article from Star Magazine in which he spills all sorts of secrets about the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills cast. In the article, Cedric states Kim Richards’s addiction issues are much worse than viewers can imagine, reveals Lisa’s true feelings about hubby Ken and costar Adrienne Maloof and also claims Adrienne might be in the worst financial condition out of all the cast.

Below are a few of Cedric’s “highlights” from the article:

Kim Richards’ Struggles With Alcohol Addiction – According to Cedric, an addition to alcohol is the least of Kim’s problems. “The truth is much darker,” he says. “I’m thankful Kim is now in rehab, hopefully getting some professional help.”

Lisa’s Feelings On Hubby Ken and Adrienne Maloof – Cedric says that despite their united font on the show, Lisa is “mortified and embarrassed,” by her husband Ken over some of his ‘ignorant jabs.’ As for Adrienne, Cedric states Lisa hates her neighbor and costar. “She feels Adrienne is not worthy of being on the show,” he says.

Cedric’s Relationship With Brandi Glanville – Cedric also reveals what has been reported previously, which is that he and newbie Brandi actually just met last year at a lunch organized by the show producers, and not during their modeling days in Europe a decade ago as they previously claimed. “It was a manufactured friendship to keep me on the show,” Cedric tells Star.

Why Was He Living With Lisa? And What Happened To Lisa’s Complaint? – “I moved out months before she landed the role,” says Cedric adding that producers convinced him to move back in for season 1 filming. As for the complaint Lisa filed against him with the cops last year over claims of a possible extortion, Cedric says Lisa’s case was weak. “I was never even contacted by police.”

The BH Housewives Lying About Their Wealth? – “Not everything is as it seems,” says Cedric, who claims seemingly uberrich Adrienne may actually be in the worst financial shape of them all. “They were forced to unload 98 percent of their beloved Palms Casino Resort,” claims Cedric. A report came out last year stating Adrienne was having financial difficulty and was forced to downgrade her lavish lifestyle. And last October, Adrienne admitted she had been “cutting back” on her lavish lifestyle.

Cedric, who will be appearing on the season 2 finale of the RHOBH, also claims producers of the show were the ones that invited him to Lisa’s party. “Lisa confronted me with some of the worst acting you’ll ever see on television. She claimed I wasn’t invited and told me to leave. It’s sums up all the phoniness and manufactured drama on the show,” he says.

Meanwhile, the RHOBH season 2 reunion filmed on Thursday and we’re hearing Kim Richards, who is still in rehab, did not attend. Below are some tweets from Kyle Richards, Taylor Armstrong and Andy Cohen after the taping:

Kyle tweeted – “Emotionally draining day. So hard to re live all the difficult moments this season on #RHOBH. Thank u to our “therapist” @BravoAndy. Xo”

Taylor tweeted – “Thanks for the great support! For the haters, when all the truth comes out I’ll try to post some delish “crow” recipes.” Really Taylor?

Andy tweeted – “Long day taping #RHOBH Reunion. Emotional, intense, dramatic. The wives deserve a cocktail right about now…. !”

No word yet on how many parts the reunion will be but it is scheduled to air on January 30.

TELL US – THOUGHTS ON CEDRIC’S COMMENTS ABOUT THE BH HOUSEWIVES? DO YOU BELIEVE HIM?

It seems like Teen Mom 2 star Jenelle Evans just can’t seem to get her life together.

The latest is a new photo scandal involving the MTV reality star who just turned 20 in December. On Thursday, scandalous photos of Jenelle were posted on a Twitter page which shows her partying, drinking and making out with her new female roommate and best friend Victoria Rhyne.

The Twitter account belongs to a James Duffy, whom the Starcasm blog describes as Jenelle’s former boss and also the new live-in-boyfriend of Hannah Inman, a.k.a. Jenelle’s former BFF. James also posted screen shots of text messages he claims are from Jenelle, thanking him for sex and asking him to go buy sex toys for her.

Those wild photos of Jenelle are below as she admitted yesterday that it is her in the pictures. “Yes i learned my lesson all those pics and videos r from two months ago. I never went back,” tweeted Jenelle.

Jenelle is also firing back at “Duffy” telling Starcasm that she never had sex or dated him, while also alleging that he “sexually harassed” her, lied about having sex with her and “poisoned” her. Wowzers.

Jenelle alleges that when she was Duffy’s personal assistant he would invite Jenelle and her friends over for dinner, and they would show up for the free food and alcohol. Ultimately, their business relationship ended when Jenelle says he offered “everything in the world to me ONLY IF i had sex with him.”

She claims she declined his advances and quit working for him. Jenelle also states that she was poisoned by Duffy once when he invited her over for a spaghetti dinner which made her and her friends throw up violently and not remember anything from that day. Jenelle alleges Duffy told her business manager via Facebook that he planned to give the girls Spanish scorpion as an aphrodisiac. She, however, states that whatever he gave them made them extremely ill and black out.

Jenelle posted on her Twitter page today that she is “at the courthouse, taking legal action” against Duffy. She also retweeted a tweet which alleges Duffy has arrest warrants out for failure to pay child support, assault and stalking charges.

Others have also made a valid point that it isn’t too smart of Duffy, who is said to be in his 40s, to post images and videos of underage kids drinking at his home. Some of the photos posted of Jenelle are below.

Moving on to Jenelle’s fellow troubled Teen Mom star Amber Portwood, who remains in jail. Unfortunately for Amber, TMZ is reporting her landlord is planning to evict her.

According to TMZ, the company that owns Amber’s rented home in Anderson, Indiana filed a notice with the courts this week to evict her. The reason? Amber violated her lease agreement though no specifics were given. In fact, the landlord delivered an eviction notice to Amber on Dec. 20, the day after Amber was jailed for violating her probation.

Amber’s attorney had no comment on the issue citing he was not aware of the eviction. Amber, who sits in jail, now has a Jan. 25 court date and could be evicted immediately if she misses it.
