With the ratings for her TLC show Kate Plus 8continuing to decline, it appears Kate Gosselin would like to change the public perception of herself, you know, the one that has her as a “money-hungry b*tch.”
In an interview with the HuffingtonPost, Kate surprisingly reveals she is aware of what the public perceives her as being. “The biggest misconception is that I’m a money-hungry b*tch,” says Kate, “My friends come and tell me. They can’t take it.” She has friends???
Kate goes on to add that her friends and family get more upset about the negative rumors than she does. Really, she has friends?. “I have to tell them just ignore it, don’t read it,” says Kate. “You know it’s not true. I am very driven, very type-A, very hard-working, very perfectionist.”
Kate adds, “Every single person with that personality is accused of being self-absorbed, snobby and horrible. A bad impression is given because you are so driven. My mind is on the finish line. It’s an attractive quality as far as men are concerned.” Sure it is Katie.
Kate then goes on to issue a challenge to her naysayers, which is pretty much the entire universe, when she states you should meet her before judging her.
“I really have to tell you I enjoy the challenge of meeting people personally and changing their opinion of me,” reveals Kate. “Because it happens 100 percent of the time.” Uh uh.

This week, a nude photo was leaked online claiming to be that of Ryan’s. And yesterday Tamra took to her facebook page to defend her son, stating that while it is him in the photo, he did not leak it online but rather an ex-girlfriend of his did. Tammy Sue’s statement is below –
“FOR THE RECORD RYAN DID NOT TAKE THE PIC OF HIM SELF…AN EX GF DID AND TURNED THEM IN….NOT COOL! YOU HAVE COMMENTS ABOUT THE PIC SEND THEM TO HIM, I DONT WANT TO HEAR ABOUT IT!!!!!!”
Oddly enough, Gretchen Rossireceived a ton of criticism from Tamra after nude photos of her, allegedly leaked out by her ex-boyfriend, made their way online.
And in looking at the photo, it definitely appears to be a self taken penis portrait, but we’ll let you be the judge.
You can CLICK HERE to see Ryan’s schlong. The photo is NSFW of course.
TELL US – THOUGHTS?
UPDATE – Ryan acknowledged it is him in the photo before Tamra did on his twitter page. He posted, “So apparently once someone puts a picture of your cock online you become popular… haha.” He later added that he wasn’t upset about it but actually found it funny, calling it his “ad.” A lot of girls are also hitting on Ryan since the photo leaked so alls well that ends well?
On the 15th episode this season (the finale is next week), as LuAnn gears up for the making of her “Chic, C’est La Vie” music video, all the housewives aren’t quite on board with joining the party. Jill is ready for her moment in the spotlight, but Ramona doesn’t think it’s appropriate to participate since her daughter will eventually see it. Ramona doesn’t stop there as she calls LuAnn out on her questionable parenting skills and of course the ladies only get more dramatic from there.
The new episode airs on Bravo at 10/9c and a preview clip is below via UsWeekly.
Watch What Happens Live – Andy Cohen returns as host tonight with lone guest Jeff Lewis of Flipping Out. Woo hoo! Should be a great show. P.S.Am I the only one who thinks Andy and Jeff would make an adorable couple?
Meanwhile, Countess Lulu aka LuAnn de Lesseps announced this week that she has now launched her own mobile application. Yes you read that right.
The app, brilliantly named ‘Countess LuAnn,’ will offer amazing features such as Etiquette & Manners Tips, Soundbites, Etiquette & Manners Polls and Quizzes, and even a Table Settings guide! But there’s more folks as the app also offers “Ask the Countess,” where users can ask questions and get answers from LuAnn herself. Judging from her behavior on the show this season, LuAnn might want to invest in her own app asap!
For those interested in having LuAnn as your life coach, you can get the app at the Apple App store for $0.99!

According to the TalkingWithTami blog, which was on hand to snap photos at the event, The Bailey Agency offers an intense six-week course with Cynthia, exploring the many different facets of modeling such as etiquette, walking the catwalk, posing, photography, film production, make-up amongst other things.
During a discussion with fellow HG Kalia this week, the topic turned to Harry Potter books and its writer J.K. Rowling‘s past statement that Dumbledore was a gay character.
Jeff appeared taken aback by the revelation stating, “He’s in a school with little kids, you can’t make that guy gay!” He then added, “It isn’t right to have it in a little kids book, and have the head master locked away in this magical land, be gay. That isn’t the right kind of writing to do.”
Kalia’s response was, “Why? Gay men can’t work with little kids!?” adding, “Just because he is gay, doesn’t mean there is a thing wrong with him.” Jeff replied, “You know exactly what I’m saying. Don’t make it seem like you’re doing the right thing by saying that it’s not.”
As for CBS, they responded with the statement below –
“Big Brother is a reality show about watching a group of people who have no privacy 24/7 — and seeing every moment of their lives. At times, the Houseguests make comments, reveal prejudices and other beliefs that we do not condone. Any views or opinions expressed in personal commentary by a Houseguest appearing on BIG BROTHER, either on any live feed from the House or the broadcast, are those of the individual(s) speaking and do not represent the views or opinions of CBS or the producers of the program.”
Some are calling Jeff homophobic while some of his defenders are stating he isn’t citing he developed a friendship with the openly gay KevinCampbell during his 2009 stint on Big Brother. It will be interesting to see if CBS will show Jeff’s comments on the televised airing. Houseguest Cassi also received some flack last week after she jokingly referred to Dominic as a ‘fa**ot’ on the live feeds.
A new episode of Big Brother is set to air tonight on CBS during which the first houseguest of season 13 will be evicted. Up on the chopping block are Porsche and Keith. On last night’s episode, Keith was overly cocky and planned to throw the Veto competition because he believes he has enough votes to stay. Keith is assuming all of the new HGs will vote for him. Wowzers.
Rachel won the veto and left the nominations the same. So far, it appears the plan of the returning HGs is to keep Porsche in the house and vote out Keith. But do they have enough votes to do so? We will find out tonight on CBS at 9/8c.

Reality famewhores stars Heidi Montag and Danielle Staub are discovering the hard way this week that their 15 minutes of fame might be officially over.
The two are currently starring on VH1’s new series Famous Food, alongside other famewhoresJake Pavelka,Ashley Dupre, & others, which premiered this Sunday. The ratings are however out today and it is nothing short of a disaster.
How many people tuned in? Only 430,000 viewers. Those numbers are a major flop especially considering the amount of publicity the show received in addition to the fact that the show aired on a major network.
In comparison Sunday’s episode of theReal Housewives of New Jersey, aka Danielle’s former show, was seen by over 2.2 million viewers. Sucks to be Danielle.
It’s safe to assume there will be no second season of Famous Food, or better yet no more reality shows featuring Heidi and Danielle. Here’s to hoping the newly opened Lemon Basket restaurant from the show performs better than the actual show.

According to the latest issue of UsWeekly magazine, formerBachelor Brad is still hoping he can win back his ex-fiance Emily and has been totally distraught since the split.
A source reveals Brad, 38, continues to drunk-dial Emily, 25. “When they weren’t together, Brad would drunk-dial Emily and cry,” says the source. A friend also reveals that Brad would be crushed if Emily went on to become the Bachelorette as reported. “It would kill him,” says the friend.
Brad’s ex Laurel Kagay has said on numerous occasions that her relationship with Brad was very unhealthy. Laurel stated Brad had a scary temper and would continuously break up with her only to beg her to take him back days later. Perhaps Brad was doing the same thing with Emily and she got fed up.
As for the reason Brad did not participate in the interview with Emily, sources reveal he was simply too distressed over the break up. Other sources add that Brad also declined the invite because he did not want another Jake and Vienna situation. Probably the smartest decision he’s made in decades.
As for those reports stating Emily will be the next Bachelorette, host Chris Harrison admits that while Emily’s name has been tossed around, it is far from a done deal.
“It’s obviously been bantered about,” Chris tells Access Hollywood. “We’re not idiots, we talked about it, of course, but it hadn’t even been broached to her. It is way too soon.” Chris also adds that it is simply way too early to pick a Bachelorette as production on the new season will not begin for at least 6 months.
“It is way too early, way too presumptuous of anybody to say she’s The Bachelorette,” say Chris adding, “We would never pigeonhole ourselves … this early.”

After calling Melissa a copycat in her latest cookbook (yes she took a dig at her in a cooking book), calling her a liar in an interview last month, and referring to her as a gold-digger on the RHONJ, Teresa took to her Bravo blog this week to bash Melissa once again.
First Teresa, who is hoping to get her own cooking show, attacked Melissa in regards to their recent appearance on Live with Regis & Kelly stating she looked sad on the show because unlike Melissa who is enjoying all the negative attention, she simply isn’t.
“Yes, I heard from you all that I looked a little tense on the show, but that’s because I was. Having issues with my family blow up even bigger because we’re on TV together is kind of a nightmare. It’s not fun for me. I can’t pretend it is,” wrote Teresa. “I’m not gonna sit there and be all smiley and happy that I’m on a talk show when I feel like crying. I’d rather never have been on TV and have a happy family than go through any of this. And it’s hard to sit next to people who obviously don’t feel the same way and are loving every minute of it…,” added Teresa who has appeared on the cover of In Touch Weekly a total of five times in the past 2 months alone granting them exclusive interviews each time.
It doesn’t end there as Teresa goes on to attack Melissa’s singing aspirations. “Hopefully things will get better, but as long as Melissa gets attention for saying negative things about me, I think she’ll take it,” she wrote. “Once it all dies down, I’m looking forward to having our family whole again (I’m guessing that won’t happen until she fulfills her Britney Spears dreams though. Please, make it quick and painless. Thank you, Jeezus!).”
In true Teresa fashion, she also manages to take a subtle dig at Caroline Manzo who was rumored to be on the outs with sisterDina Manzo. “Caroline pointed out that with all her brothers and sisters, someone is always fighting, and I’m sure that’s true. She’s maybe more used to not speaking to her sisters or brothers for awhile, but I’m not. It’s just me and Joey, and I can’t stand not having him in my life,” wrote Teresa.
Teresa also talked about her recent magazine covers stating it’s starting to affect her daughters. “It’s getting harder and harder to keep the girls from reading the outrageous headlines when we’re in the store,” wrote Teresa. Odd considering she gave paid exclusive interviews to In Touch Weekly for all of their recent cover stories about her.
As for Melissa, she has yet to respond to Teresa’s latest comments but seemed to have a more positive outlook on things in her latest Bravo blog. “I really meant what I said about wanting Teresa to be my sister. I wish she would have let me in from the beginning, but better late than never! We are fixing this!” she wrote. Safe to assume Melissa wrote that before reading Tre’s blog.
It also appears things are at least going well between the Gorga/Giudice kids as Melissa tweeted on Monday that she took her daughter Antonia alongside two of Teresa’s daughters to get manis and pedis together. Meanwhile Joe Gorga made the following tweet after reading his sister’s blog, “Just read the blogs, when will she stop?”
Great question but better yet, when will it all stop?
