DWTS has experienced its highest ratings ever this season, even beating out the widely popular American Idol on more than one occasion. However, with the departure of Kate Gosselin, the question on everyone’s minds seems to be will the ratings take a hit? Only time will tell.
Speaking of Kate, there’s a new story claiming that most of the DWTS cast was glad to see her leave. According to E! Online, Kate was not fun to be on the set and even made demands such as asking crew members not to look at her, thus her recent elimination leaving everyone happy. “Everyone couldn’t be more relieved,” says a show insider. “We all had to walk on eggshells around [Kate]. At least we don’t have to worry about where our eyes can or can’t drift off to now.”
The source continues, “Kate just thought that everyone was out to get her. That’s why she had all of those crazy rules, like how she was to be approached.” Adds the source, “She was not an easy person to work with.”

This recap was written on Friday evening, I then decided not to post it because it was too late in the day. Then decided on Saturday I should just scrap it all together, then decided on Sunday that I should probably post it since it’s already been written, and now it’s Monday and what the hay! So below is the recap, hope you enjoy.
We started off last night’s episode with a little TMI involving Jill Zarin and her sick dog. Moving right along to Bethenny visiting Alex, and sharing her engagement news with her.Bethenny reveals Alex is the first person she’s telling, and plans on telling all the other housewives at a later date. It’s nice to see a genuine friendship developing between Alex and Bethenny, who would have thought? Who would have guessed? That’s the great thing about the housewives’ series, you never know what’s next to come.
Next up is a get together between the single women on the show, we get to see the Countess, Kelly and new housewife Samantha from Sex & the CitySonja Morgan meet up for drinks. Interestingly enough, all three of these women married much older rich men, and all three are still holding on to their last names. Sonja does what she does best, which is to blab about sex. Kelly attempts to downplay her past relationship with male gigoloMax, which is interesting considering she spent all of last season flaunting him around. I’m still on the fence about the addition of Sonja. Perhaps its because this season has been very interesting thus far, but I’m not really seeing what she adds.When you think about it, Bethenny, Ramona, Jill, Kelly, and even Alex are all one of a kind. I mean really, have you ever come across anyone like Ramona? The answer is likely no, but Sonja doesn’t seem to have that unique factor.Anyone who’s seen an episode of Sex & the City, knows this woman is a Samantha wannabe.
And how cute and funny was Kelly’s daughter when she decided not to talk to the cameras, but rather write down what was happening. Very cute scene.
The big event of the night came towards the end of the episode at Kelly’s event for Gotham magazine.For some reason, some of the ladies (Bethenny, Kelly and Alex) decided this was the night to sport their shortest attires.Bethenny’s one liner about what the ladies had on was priceless.“This was the party evidently that we were all told to wear a square of toilet paper and make an outfit out of it. I mean I literally, I didn’t have a top on, Kelly’s vagina was hanging out. Alex’s ass cheeks. Literally, it was like a yard sale of body parts,” said Bethenny. Seriously, it must be hard for one to hate Bethenny because love her or hate her, she will make you laugh!
The former winner of Survivor: Tocantins found himself eliminated after making a crucial mistake in his game play – trusting Russell Hantz that is. In a new interview with RealityTVWorld, JT,25, speaks out on his elimination, his decision to trust Russell and not Sandra, and the things we didn’t get to see on TV.
Excerpts from JT’s interview below -
Reality TV World: Why were you so arrogantly confident that Russell could be trusted? [Rupert Boneham] even told you during last night’s episode that he must be on the Villains tribe for a reason. Didn’t you think it was possible he was playing you?
J.T.: Oh yeah, I definitely came off way more confident than I felt like I was. (laughing) There was a couple days we contemplated the plan. When it was all packed into one episode, it looks like we were really confident.
My first thought was the women alliance when they voted [Tyson Apostol] off. When I said that, Rupert brought it up at the next three challenges. They just picked up on that and started feeding that — played it up. But we were never really sure about Russell at all. When it first started, I was excited about it. But as soon as we spent one night together at our camp [after the merge], we knew we were in trouble and that I had made the wrong move.
But in doing that move, we wanted to do a couple things. We also knew that Russell may keep the idol for himself and vote Parvati out just to try to make me think that he’s one of us. That’s what I thought he would do. That was my thoughts, that he was going to think, “Okay, I’ll vote Parvati out to keep this idol. I’d be a step ahead of the game.” But in all honesty, I would have voted him out next. That was my thinking — worst-case scenario, he keeps the idol. Who cares? We’ll play along and let him vote Parvati out and that’s all we really wanted done anyway. There’s more than one angle to it.
Reality TV World: Did you ever start to believe that there might be some truth behind what Sandra had told Rupert about Russell? Because last night’s episode was a little unclear, but you still seemed confident that Russell was on your side even after Parvati willing stepped down during the Immunity Challenge.
J.T.: No. After Parvati stepped down we knew we were at the losing end of some deal we didn’t know about. That’s actually when I act like I’m stepping down, Parvati and [Danielle DiLorenzo], that got them really excited. I was in pain. I was like, “Oh no. They’re just waiting for me to get down.” So I knew I was in trouble.
Reality TV World: At that point did you believe Parvati and Russell were working together?
J.T.: No. I did not know that. I thought Parvati might even know more than what Russell knew. I thought she may even have something over him, which she did with the idol. But I didn’t expect that.
Reality TV World: What made the Heroes’ decide to target Jerri instead of Sandra and would you have gone after Danielle instead if she had not won Immunity?
J.T.: We probably would have went after Danielle. But we knew Russell wasn’t with her and we knew that we wanted him to vote Parvati. So we let it slip that we were voting Sandra, that way he would vote Sandra and we’d have an out if he wasn’t with us. That’s why I thought Parvati got tipped off by one of the girls because Russell fell right for it. But Parvati somehow knew we were voting Jerri. Nobody ever talked about Jerri.
Reality TV World: You already said you didn’t expect Parvati to do what she did last night, but did you really think there was any chance she would give it to someone else?
J.T.: We thought she might give it away because we were so obvious that we were voting Parvati that she probably wouldn’t believe it. So we knew there was a chance, but we thought Jerri would be the last person. We knew they didn’t get along.
Reality TV World: There’s been a lot of talk about whether it was fair or not for Russell to get to play the game without anyone having gotten to seen his season first. Do you think he would have had any chance of making it this far if you guys had all seen his Samoa season before Heroes vs. Villains was filmed?
J.T.: I think there’s arguments to both sides of that. I played Tocantins and had never seen any of them play and had done really well versus seeing a lot of different players, so it can be argued either way. Everyone knew when we were going out there that there was one person when we got there that would be from a season that we were not familiar with. None of us hesitated to play it. It’s all in the game. It makes it more difficult.
Reality TV World: Even if you did completely trust Russell, giving him a Hidden Immunity Idol without ever seeing Survivor: Samoa or spending one day with him in camp is an incredibly bold and risky move. Why did you consider his joining the Heroes at the merge such an important move, were you that certain you were going to have no chance to get someone else like maybe Sandra to flip?
J.T.: It didn’t ever really cross my mind that I could get one of the girls until afterwards. Once we merged, everyone was scared to talk to each other. It made it clear that they had a plan, and we were vice-versa. It was pretty set in stone. There was never anybody really wanting to trade except Sandra. It appears that. Unfortunately I never got a chance to talk to her.

Her younger sister, Kim Kardashian, also seems to have taken notice as Kim reveals to UsWeekly that Kourtney now weighs less than her. “My sister weighs less than I do, and she just had a baby — so that’s kind of fascinating to me!” said Kim, 29, at Wet Republic in Las Vegas Saturday, where she celebrated Kourtney’s 31st birthday along with Khloe Kardashian.
Kim is however 5-foot-3, while Kourtney is 5-foot-1. And what is Kourtney’s secret for slimming down so quickly after having Mason in December? “Definitely breastfeeding helps,”said Kourt. “Everyone says that, but it’s really true — and it’s just being a busy mom.”
This unfortunately gave Khloe, 25, some ideas. “If that’s all it takes, breastfeeding?” said Khloe jokingly. “Then someone breastfeed off of me! I don’t care!”

According to TMZ, Josh was taken Central Men’s Jail in Santa Ana where he is being held without bail until a hearing on Monday.
This isn’t the first or second time Josh has been on the wrong side of the law. He was arrested back in June 2008 for possession of heroin and ecstasy and intent to sell, and then in July 2009 for possession of narcotics and drug paraphernalia.
Gretchen, star of the Real Housewives of Orange County, was scheduled to appear in Court last week in regards to the $18,000 a Judge awarded Jay last year regarding his claims that Gretchen defamed him during her attempt to get a restraining order against him. Interestingly enough, Gretchen made time to attend the launching of her milkshake at Millions of Milkshakes, just days before skipping out on her court date. What can we say? The girl has her priorities in order.
The hearing Gretchen skipped out on was to determine how much money she makes and how many assets she has. The Judge in that case however gave Gretchen a week to get her act together or else the bench warrant will be changed to an arrest warrant.
Someone needs to tell Gretchen its not defamation if everything the guy came out saying turned out to be true. Despite being a total scumbag, Jay’s tales about being in a relationship with Gretchen while she was still engaged to Jeff Beitzel have turned out to be accurate. There have been numerous photos leaked of the two, likely by Jay himself, that show them kissing and even shows Gretchen with a ring finger tattoo of Jay’s name.
With that being said, Gretchen likely doesn’t have a cast against Jay. Yes he’s a douchebag for trashing her in the press, but that doesn’t constitute defamation.

If you recall, we reported last month that Nene and hubby Gregg Leakeswere experiencing marital problems, made worse by her son’s recent arrests. According to a report this week, Nene reportedly left her husband for Charles, a player for the New Orleans Saints, and was also recently photographed without her wedding ring.
The rumor seemed somewhat believable as this isn’t the first time Nene has been leaked to the NFL player. Nene has however taken to her twitter to deny the news. She posted the following on Friday:
“Y r people saying i’m wit Charles Grant! I hosted his charity event last year & now were dating! How’s that possible when we don’t even talk
@WendyShow sorry girlfriend! Ur investigation is WRONG! I’m a very smart girl & my happiness is everything 2 me
@WendyShow I don’t date Charles Grant! If I did, I would tell’ya! PS: just because a person is mild manners means what? “
Nene’s wording is rather interesting, as she doesn’t deny a split from her husband Gregg. Makes you wonder…
According to PEOPLE, Bret, 47, was rushed to an undisclosed hospital Thursday night after complaining of excruciating headaches. A source says, “After several CAT scans, MRIs and an angiogram, [doctors] decided to keep Michaels in the ICU and are running several tests to determine the cause. [It] will be touch and go for the next few days while he is under intense observation.”
And just how serious is Bret’s condition? Well according to TMZ, those not receiving proper medical treatment after suffering a subarachnoid hemorrhage have a 20% to 30% chance of experiencing a second bleed within the first month, and that second bleed yields a 70% mortality rate.
The good news for now is Bret is said to be “awake, in good spirits and talking.” Rock of Love season 2 winner Ambre Laketells TMZ she’s spoken with people who are close to Bret who say he’s stabilized and conscious. However the next 24 to 48 hours are said to be critical, and Bret will be closely monitored.
Also speaking out is ROL season 3 winner, Taya Parker. Taya, who is no longer with Bret, spoke to RadarOnline, giving them the following statement: “It’s been a very difficult time. Between his appendectomy and this current situation, everyone that cares for him has been vigilant with their prayers and hopes for a full recovery. My heart and thoughts are with him always. Bret’s determination and drive have always been one of his most endearing qualities. His love for his family and his fans makes his heart a heart that’s larger than life. Bret has overcome many adversities and struggles in his life, and he always handles himself with dignity. I could not be more proud of him, the person he is, and the loves that drive his life.”
