Michelle Arroyo

More news to report in the ongoing child support case involving Real Housewives of Orange County star Slade Smiley, boyfriend of Gretchen Rossi.

Michelle Arroyo, Slade’s ex and mother of his son Grayson Smiley, is speaking out against him in a new interview. Michelle states that despite Slade’s claims on the recent reunion show that he is paying his child support, he is still a deadbeat dad who continues to fall further behind in his payments as Grayson‘s medical bills pile up. Grayson, 11, is suffering from a rare brain tumor.

“My son’s father, Slade Smiley, is a deadbeat dad,” says Michelle in the current issue of the National Enquirer. In fact court documents obtained by the mag show Slade is now owing a whopping $160,000 in child support, a vast increase from the $138,000 he owed back in February. Court documents also show he has only made $7,000 in payments over the last several years.

“I just want Slade to do his part as a father,” says Michelle. “We’ve been living with my sister for the past four years. I can’t work because of [Grayson’s] illness.” Michelle states Grayson requires 24-hour care.

Slade was contacted to give his side of the story and the best he could come up with was copies of two $500 money orders he sent to Michelle as proof that he pays his child support. Slade also stated a $20,000 donation to his son’s foundation was made on his behalf by a production company. He however had no response when it came to the 160k he owes. Slade’s driver’s license was suspended back in January due to the delinquent child support.

Michelle adds that she isn’t satisfied with things and takes Gretchen to task for stating in a recent Bravo blog that Slade can prove he’s been paying his support. “I would love to see the documents that Gretchen is talking about,” fumed Michelle. “The court records don’t lie. He needs to start acting like a father and taking some responsibility.”

In the meantime, there is a website set up for little Grayson for those who would like to contribute to his foundation. The website is Amazinggray.org. Grayson has been battling his brain tumor since 2006 and continues to require surgeries to treat the disease.

While CBS officially revealed the 8 new houseguests entering the Big Brother 13 house this season, they kept the identities of the returning all star “dynamic duos” a secret.

Well it is a secret no more as a Big Brother insider has revealed the six returning all stars. The good news? Natalie and Jessie will not be returning.

The better news? Jeff and Jordan will be returning according to twitter user Crystal Eisermann. Joining Jeff & Jordan will be Brendon and Rachel, and also father/daughter duo Dani and Evil Dick. “Since it has leaked, I guess I can confirm that Jeff and Jordan, Dick and Dani and Brenchel are the Duos!” was the tweet made by Crystal on Monday.

Crystal, who has interviewed a number of the BB houseguests in the past, is rumored to work for Real Player which offers the live feeds of the show. Hours after revealing the HGs, Crystal tweeted, “To everyone asking how I know who the duo’s are, let’s just say I have friends in high places?!? And yes I’m sure.”

Of course CBS will not confirm this leak so we will have to wait until Thursday to see the returning duos. While the live feeds won’t begin airing until Thursday night, all of the houseguests have entered the Big Brother house since late last week.

As for the updates on the returning HGs, Jeff and Jordan are STILL dating, going on almost 2 years now. Below is a recent photo of them from May. And as you know, Brendon and Rachel are still together and are now engaged. There are also reports that Dani and Dick are not on speaking terms so it will be interesting to see how it all plays out if they are indeed houseguests this season. While Evil Dick seems to be a fan favorite, I’m personally not excited about his return as I did not like the way he treated the women from his season. Perhaps he has now turned a new leaf.

A year after filing for divorce from ex-husband Kelsey Grammer, reality star Camille Grammer is now speaking out, stating she feels “liberated.”

While on vacation in Hawaii with her kids, daughter Mason, 9 and son Jude, 6, the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star told RadarOnline, “It’s been one year today I filed for divorce, I feel liberated!”

Camille added that she has a lot to be thankful for this 4th of July weekend. “What can be better than being with my kids in Hawaii over the holidays? Nothing!” said Camille. “We’re having the time of our lives. Mason is enjoying hanging out on the beach and dolphin watching. Jude is taking golf lessons with his grandfather and we can barely get him out of the water.”

Camille’s euphoria will likely be short lived as she is getting ready for a nasty custody battle with ex Kelsey. According to court documents, they both plan to testify in the trial though Kelsey has requested a judge seal all documents pertaining to the case. A pretrial hearing has been set for July 27, while the actual custody hearing will take place in August or September.

Last month, Kelsey told Life & Style he expects the custody battle to get ugly. “It’s going to be a long, drawn-out thing,” he revealed. “We’ll be tortured and it will be unpleasant I’m sure, but not on my side.”

When asked about the possibility of a friendship with Camille in the future, Kelsey revealed uncertainty. “I really can’t tell,” he said adding that his main concern is his children. “It’s very hard at this point,” Kelsey added. “I’m not going to say much about that, but I’m going to do my best to make sure my kids are always okay.”

The Real Housewives of Atlanta 3
While the Real Housewives of Atlanta continue to film their fourth season, Nene Leakes and Kandi Burruss hit up Atlanta’s V103 radio station and dished on what is to come!

For starters, Kandi revealed she is done making music with Kim Zolciak. “I only did those two songs. We’re not doing anymore,” said Kandi of working on Kim’s “music career.” Kandi also added that Kim has still yet to pay her a producer’s fee for the first song they did together aka Tardy For The Party. Kandi however claims she is oh so over it. Here’s to hoping that issue will NOT be revisited again on season 4.

Moving on to the Nene who didn’t talk about Kim, but revealed her divorce to husband Gregg Leakes will play out on the show. She also promised viewers will get to see what caused their separation on the upcoming season. Season 4 is expected to premiere this fall.

Meanwhile, it now appears new housewife Marlo Hampton and Nene have become BFFs after Bravo reportedly cast Marlo to stir up some drama with the Nene. See Marlo is engaged to NFL player Charles Grant, who is rumored to have had a fling with the Nene a year ago.

In fact the two ladies have been tweeting to each other quite regularly as well as hanging out. “Having sooooooooo much wit my girls @iheartmarlo @CynthiaBailey10,” tweeeted Nene last Wednesday along with a picture of the trio which is posted below. The ladies hung out again the next day to which Marlo tweeted, “@NeNeLeakes had so much fun girl.”

It seems they have resolved whatever issues they had as Nene made this interesting tweet on Thursday. “Thanks @iheartmarlo 4 being woman enough 2 talk 2 me, Instead of believing that thirsty wanna b.” Wonder who the Nene is referring to? So much drama!

And finally, the Rumor Fix caught up with Nene during her recent trip to LA and when they asked her about her Celebrity Apprentice rival Star Jones, she had some choice words. “F*ck Star Jones! She ain’t got no job. Her only job is being ugly,” said the Nene. Cla-ssy.

It seems the 5th season of the Jersey Shore will bring us some more of the same ol as Snooki was photographed over the weekend getting wasted on a beach.

A day after Vinny quit the show, Snooki, 23, and fellow castmate Deena Cortese left their Shore house to visit Jenkinson’s Club and the Point Pleasant Beach on Saturday while the MTV cameras rolled.

The two were pictured having a good time, but by the end of the day, the Snooks appeared to be wasted and even needed help standing up. She also had to be escorted to a waiting taxi with the help of some strangers. Perhaps Snooki, who has always been open about her crush on Vinny, is having a hard time dealing with his departure.

And if you recall, Snooki pulled the same stunt last season on the Jersey Shore when she got completely wasted on the beach, leading to her arrest for disorderly conduct. Lesson not learned.

Below, more photos from Snooki and Deena’s day of adventure.

Real Housewives of New Jersey newbie Melissa Gorga is now having to experience the not so fun part of her new found fame.

In the latest issue of the National Enquirer, out of the woodworks is a woman named Jamie Bauer alleging she had a lesbian relationship with Melissa and dated her for 18-months while she was still a teenager. In fact Jamie even ponies up photos to the tabloid magazine to prove her claim, some of which are below.

“Melissa had one of the most insatiable sexual appetites I’d ever found in a woman,” declared her alleged former girlfriend Jamie, adding that Melissa once led a hell-raising life that is nothing like her now squeaky-clean motherly image. “This domesticated family woman that fans see on ‘Bravo’ is definitely not the same wild child I used to share a bed with when we were younger.”

Jamie reveals she met Melissa when she was a 16-year-old sophomore at South Florida’s Boca Raton High School back in 1995. Jamie was also 16 at the time. “We met one night at a house party and it was love at first sight,” says Jamie. “As a couple, we couldn’t have been a more unlikely pair. Melissa was from a affluent family and hung out with all the popular kids. She was a cheerleader, never got into trouble and made good grades. I was just the opposite. I was a high school dropout and already living on my own.” says Jamie.

“After we started dating, Melissa told me I was the first girl she’d ever been with. We managed to keep our relationship a secret from her mom for several months, even though I spent the night at their house several times a week and we’d sleep in the same bed.”

Jamie adds that Melissa’s mom eventually caught on to the relationship and banned them from seeing each other, though they still did secretly. “I’d sneak into Melissa’s bedroom window several times a week for sex,” claims Jamie. Eventually things cooled off between the two when Jamie was sent to jail for a probation violation.

Jamie adds that Melissa still wrote her “steamy letters” almost every day while she was in jail. However things ended after 18 months of dating when Jamie discovered Melissa had cheated on her. “When I got out, I found out she had cheated on me with another girl while I was away,” states Jamie.

Fast forward to today and it appears Melissa’s alleged lesbianism didn’t take as she has been married to Joe Gorga for almost 7 years with three children together, something Jamie is not too fond of. Jamie reveals watching Melissa’s new life on the RHONJ makes her “nauseous.” Wowzers. As for Melissa, she has yet to publicly comment on this story. You can read more about the story in the current issue of the National Enquirer.

Photos of Melissa and Jamie together are below.

In other NJ news, the Enquirer is also reporting that Melissa’s sister-in-law Teresa Giudice is seriously considering getting $40,000 worth of plastic surgery after recent photos of her in a bathing suit caused her “severe anxiety.” A source reveals Teresa, 39, is dealing with “a lot of insecuri­ties.”

On Teresa’s reported to do list? A $12,000-$15,000 tummy tuck and thigh liposuction, a $7,500 “touch-up” on her boob job, a $5,000-$7,000 butt-lift, a $9,500 face- and brow-lift and $1,000-$2,000 on lip plumping. “She’s suddenly found herself famous around the world and feels entitled to this makeover because now she’s a star,” said the insider. Teresa’s publicist however denies she’s planning any cosmetic work.

And finally, no new episode of the RHONJ will air tonight. The show returns next week with an all new episode.
