The season kicks off with Kourtneybeing upset that momager Kris seems to have forgotten the real meaning of family and has turned the Kardashians into a business. Taking matters into her own hands, Kourtney plans a gathering for the family where the only item on the agenda is having fun. Unfortunately, not everyone got the memo and things quickly go awry.
Meanwhile, we get to meet Kim’s new boyfriend (now fiance) Kris Humphries as the two discuss how they met during a date (hint – Kimmy had someone slip him her number) and also engage in a romantic burping contest. Khloe however is having a hard time accepting Kris as she feels Kim falls too quickly for all her boyfriends.
In the preview clip below, Kim heads over to Khloe’s house only to discover Khloe still has photos of her with her ex-boyfriends in her home. The show premieres tomorrow at 10/9c on the E! network.

Days after Gretchen sort of made a valid pointcalled Tamra a hypocrite for her actions on the Real Housewives of Orange County, Tamra is now responding. In a new interview, Tamra refers to Gretchen as being “obsessed” with her and also makes reference to her legal issues and dead-beat boyfriend Slade Smiley.
“Gretchen’s constantly bashing me in interviews is nothing more than a clever diversion, created so the attention is not on the three lawsuits in which she is currently involved and the problems with her [boyfriend Slade‘s] past-due child support,” Tamra tells E! Online via an email she sent to them. “She has NO knowledge of the issues I had with Jeana [Keough], yet she constantly finds reasons to talk about me in interviews, on the show and on her Bravo blogs.”
Tamra continued, “She is nothing more than obsessed with me…You would think with all her legal problems, she would use her time more wisely. I truly feel sorry for her and hope that she lets go of the anger she has in her heart as I did for Jeana Keough.”
Ouch. Tamra also promises all of her drama with Gretchen will be addressed on the upcoming 2-part reunion show.
And speaking of Gretchen’s legal drama, she scored a small victory in court this week against her ex Jay Photoglou. A week after requesting a protective order to keep Jay from talking to the press about certain issues, Gretchen was granted most of it.
A judge granted a protective order which prohibits both Gretchen and Jay from discussing the “sexual history of either party, either party’s financial information,” plus home and cellular telephone numbers and home addresses. As we speculated last week, this order was likely requested by Gretchen to prevent her financial information from leaking to the press during a deposition. Gretchen was ordered to fork over $40,000 to Jay for his legal fees earlier this year and has yet to.
In fact Jay’s attorney Bryan Freedman confirms a deposition is indeed in the works. “Our next move is to take Rossi’s deposition within the next few weeks,” said Bryan.

Teen Mom star Amber Portwood finally faced the music yesterday in an Indiana courtroom regarding the domestic violence case against her.
Amber, 21, was arrested back in December for hitting her baby daddy Gary Shirley, 24, in front of their daughter Leah and in front of MTV cameras. And yesterday, Amber pled guilty to two counts of felony domestic battery.
Though she had been facing up to three years in jail and a $10,000 fine, the judge decided to go easy on her. Madison Superior Court Judge David Happe suspended Amber’s two-year sentence, and placed her on two years of probation.
Also as part of her plea deal, the judge ordered Amber to undergo 30 days of inpatient therapy, obtain her high school diploma and put $10,000 in a college fund for her 2-year-old daughter. The prosecutors also dropped the most serious of charges against her — the felony child neglect charge.
And finally, the no contact order that prevented Amber and Gary from being around each other in the presence of Leah was also dropped as a result of the plea deal. So it appears Amber and Gary are once again free to be a disaster happy family. Meanwhile, you will be able to see more of Amber’s drama on the upcoming season of Teen Mom, which premieres July 5 on MTV.
Emily, 25, is finally breaking her silence as Life & Style magazine is reporting the former Bachelor winner told a reporter it was Brad, 38, who did the final dumping over the phone.
Emily spoke to the reporter on June 1 and confirmed that things are definitely over between her and Brad. “There’s nothing going on between us anymore,” she sadly admitted. “It’s over. He called me and broke up with me. That’s it — he ended the relationship.”
The duo were last seen together at the beginning of May in Texas in what appeared to be a final effort to save their relationship. “The last time we were together was when we said goodbye at the airport in Austin,” Emily confessed. “That was the last time I saw him.”
It appears Emily is speaking out to quiet down the rumors that she dumped Brad, was never in love with him, and only used him to try to become the next Bachelorette. As for the reason the former couple has yet to put out an official statement regarding the split, it might have to do with their contracts with the ABC network.
Pictured above is the always shy and conservative Kelly Bensimon, as she donned a see through sequins attire with what looks to be a bra and a matching thong? underneath along with some flip-flops? The event was the 2011 CFDA Fashion Awards which took place on Monday in New York.
Meanwhile, the 43-year-old Kelly recently spoke to OK! during which she made it clear she is a totally like nice person. Kelly tried to explain what separates her from her mean costars. “I don’t have any enemies,” said Kelly . “I like everybody. I am Miss Congeniality. I’m a brunette. I don’t really hate anybody. I mean, they try to make me hate people, but I still don’t.”
And despite trashing castmate Sonja and her home on a recent episode of the Bravo show, Kelly states she is far from being a bitch. “In all honestly, a lot of girls do a lot of really bitchy things. To be honest with you, I think that’s one thing that they’re striving for, is who can be the bigger bitch? But that’s not cool. People don’t like that.”
Kelly added, “My virtual family, they don’t like bitches. They like the cool girl, and I’d rather be cool all day long. I don’t need to be a bitch. Why? Bitch may have sold before, but it doesn’t sell now. It’s a whole new year and a whole new season. It’s all about good people with good values.” So there you have it folks, Kelly bitch is so last year.
And moving on to tonight’s all new episode of the NYC Housewives. The Sex in the City Moroccan trip comes to an end with a bump in the riad. The aftermath of a blowout between Jill and Ramona leaves Ramona still shaken, prompting yet another confrontation. Luann and Alex get into it as well, and minus Ramona, the ladies tour lavish palaces. It airs at 10/9c.

According to reports, Bentley will be back on the show. The reason? Because Ashley Hebert wanted him back and had producers of the show call him everyday for two weeks to beg him to return. Wowzers. “Ashley wanted a second chance with Bentley, so she begged producers to get him on the phone and get him on a plane out to see her,” a Bachelorette insider tells Life & Style. “She couldn’t stop thinking about him after he left her.”
Host Chris Harrison also confirms Bentley does indeed return to the show in a later episode. It gets even worse as Bentley ended up rejecting Ashley again upon his return. A friend states he didn’t have a change of heart and only wanted a free vacation. “He’s never been to Hong Kong,” the friend notes.
And some fans of the ABC show have wondered why Chris and the producers never stepped in to warn Ashley about Bentley, when it came to his comments about her in his interviews (aka Ashley’s an ugly ducking and he’s not attracted to her). Well other than the obvious reason of it brings in ratings, host Chris claims it’s because they didn’t want to interfere with Ashley’s process.
“If you have information about a guy before he even gets out of the limo, that’s beyond a red flag. We gave her the option and said, “You don’t have to meet this guy. We can pull him.” We justify everything by giving Ashley the power. It was her job to say no,” said Chris to PEOPLE. “We don’t step in and say, “That’s the wrong decision.” We never do. She was privy to some of the information. I had many conversations with her about this and so did the producers but she defended him every step of the way. She never heeded any of the warning signs.”
Chris does make a valid point as Ashley was definitely warned beforehand that Bentley was only on the show to promote his business. Chris also goes on to add that perhaps the show would have stepped in had Bentley remained on much longer. Right. “We were only two weeks in and … I don’t know what steps we would have taken if this had gone on any longer or if we would have finally just shown her his interviews,” said Chris.

According to reports, a kitchen fire broke out on Tuesday at the Brownstone, before fire officials ultimately stopped the blaze at the establishment. A source reveals it took a total of two hours to get things under control.
Following the incident, Caroline, 49, posted the following on her twitter page – “Thanks for your concern everyone @thebrownstonenj fire is contained no injuries back to business!” Caroline’s son Chris Manzo also chimed in tweeting, “The Brownstone is fine thank u for asking, can’t leave that place for a second.”
Meanwhile, after rumors first came out last year that Bravo had given Caroline’s sons Chris, 22, and Albie Manzo, 25, their own spin-off show, the network announced last week the Manzo boys do indeed have a spin-off albeit a web-spinoff a la Simon van Kempen.
The seven-episode series, which premiered two weeks ago, was shot in Hoboken and will focus on the guys’ lives in their new waterfront bachelor pad. Each episode is roughly about five minutes long and can be seen on Bravotv.com immediately following the airing of the RHONJ.
And finally, just 4 weeks into the third season of the NJ Housewives, Bravo announced the series has been renewed for a fourth season. Not much of a shocker as the show has been receiving pretty darn good ratings. The RHONJ brought in the highest-rated season premiere in Housewives history with 2.87 million total viewers, and has averaged 2.64 million viewers in its first four episodes.
