More drama in the Bachelorbreak-up soap opera. Just when it seems things are starting to die down and people are beginning to move on comes news that Vienna Girardi’s ex-boyfriend is claiming she slept with him 10 days before she broke up with Jake Pavelka.
The ex-boyfriend, Brian Lee Smith, is the same guy who leaked out emails last week that alleged Vienna was trying to get back together with him. Vienna has since denied she sent Lee any emails and even threatened to sue.
Lee, who was arrested in 2009 for harassing Vienna, is now telling Radar she cheated on Jake with him when she visited her hometown in Florida because of her sick dog.
“We were in my truck hooking up, her shirt was off and Jake just kept calling over and over again,” said Lee to Radar, also claiming he and Vienna had an on-again, off-again romance for the last four years. According to Lee, Vienna said, “I can’t just ignore his calls or he’ll freak out and call every minute.”
Lee says the relationship progressed and by the end of May, the phone calls became sexual. “It happened when Jake was out of town and we had phone sex three nights in a row.” Lee said. “It was a lot of fun and I told her I wanted her to come see me for my birthday in June.”
Lee also claims to be disappointed he and Vienna did not get back together. “She promised me she wanted our life back together,” he said, “but now she has a life in L.A.”
In other Bachelor(ette) news, just one week after confirming her split/break with fiance Ed Swiderski, it seems Jillian Harris is ready to get rid of her ring. UsWeekly reports Jillian tweeted yesterday, “Let’s trade the ring in for a new BMW!” only to take down the tweet later.
Perhaps RadarOnline’s report of Ed going out partying and trying to hook up with multiple women finally pushed Jillian over the edge. She told UsWeekly last week that the split was likely temporary and just a break for she and Ed to sort things out. It however seems Ed is over it and is already moving on. One can only hope Jillian finally realizes she deserves better than a two-timing douche.
Coming up in tonight’s episode, Jacqueline and her husband have reached their limit with Ashley’s bad behavior as she continually provokes Danielle. Fearing the unpredictable wrath of Danielle, Jacqueline’s husband threatens to kick Ashley out of the house if she keeps stirring up drama. Even without the Ashley and Danielle drama, Jacqueline can’t seem to escape Danielle and gets a surprise phone call from Danielle’s “energist”.
Ashley, who has already seen tonight’s episode, is apparently not happy with her behavior. And what’s a Bravo star to do when you are not happy with the way you behaved on national television? Well, if you’re Jill Zarin Ashley, you blame it all on editing. Ashley tweeted:
“WOW THE NEW EPISODE IS BULLSHIT.. F*CK EDITING. I’M OVER IT…SO DONE WITH THIS.”
Ashley has since deleted the tweet.
In other NJ news, Danielle continues to use her faux lesbian relationship with singer/songwriter Lori Michaels to garner attention. We reported last week that Danielle showed up to an event with Lori and her two daughters. InTouch magazine was able to interview Danielle during the said event, and she stated she doesn’t care much for men.
“I can say that people are reading between the lines, and pictures don’t lie. In all honesty, I don’t care much for men. Let’s leave it at that.” Dirty D continues, “I’m very happy. I really am. She is a big part of my soul, and we share a lot of chemistry together.”
Not sure who’s more to blame. Danielle for pretending to be a lesbian, or supposed proud lesbian Lori Michaels for going along with the nonsense publicity stunt?
Moving right along, below is a preview clip of the drama that ensues. We see Danielle literally trying to run away from the fashion show, while Teresa Giudice chases after her, repeatedly calling her a “coke-whore.”
TELL US – WHAT ARE YOUR THOUGHTS ON TONIGHT’S EPISODE OF THE REAL HOUSEWIVES OF NEW JERSEY?
The story was printed in the June 17th issue of InTouch magazine:
Kelly Bensimon Is Just As “Batty” As She Seems On TV
When Real Housewives of New York City’s resident airhead Kelly Bensimon hired a nanny in 2009 to watch her children Sea, 12, and Teddy, 10, her neighbors weren’t shy about alerting the new employee to what she’d signed up for. “They said, ‘You’re the fourth person in the last six months to work for her,’” claims the former nanny, adding that she thinks that Kelly is “crazy” and says she’s seen her start her day by spiking her coffee with Patrón tequila.
Meanwhile, Kelly continues to spend her time on twitterville posting nonsense and for some strange reason, replying to every negative tweet she receives. She literally spends all day, 7 days a week, replying to negative comments from fans of the show. Below are some recent tweets from her, all posted within the last 12 hours alone.
Kelly on the Mel Gibson’s racist audio tape rants –
Kelly - “Watching Today show and Mel Gibson. Who should we believe?”
Fan - “@kikilet U should believe da tapes u idiot! Mel is a racist. Da sooner he admits it the faster we can move on!”
Kelly - “its not my job to judge the personal lives of people. We have courtrooms for that.”
Kelly replying to a fan who was actually being nice to her -
Fan - “Just saw that @kikilet’s daughter is on Twitter. I know how we all feel about Kelly but I’m hoping every1 is being respectful to her CHILD.”
Kelly - “i know you feel betrayed by BRAVO.i am only human. please move forward. i am bored with the ‘breakthrough’. i filmed 3 days later.”
Kelly on her twitter name kikilet:
“my twitter name is ‘kiki’ azzedine alaia,a. French designer gave me the name. So it’s little kiki.”
Other random tweets by Kelly -
“i love twitter, but we need to empower each other. my followers are smart, witty, and cool. we dont succumb to mean. why should we?”
“bravo hired me for my authenticity, integrity, honesty, and legitimacy. whatever works for them works for me.”
“you got it. I am just authentic. I am not going to be fake for popularity, sorry. I am human. hiiii.”
“bullying is a constant I love u, I hate u, I love u. Where have u seen that exhibited?”
Immediately following the airing of her volatile interview with Jake last week, Vienna tweeted, “Thank you for all your support, the truth will always prevail. I’m so glad people see what I have been going through. Love you all.” Oddly enough Jake also tweeted a thanks for the support message to his fans.
What is clear is most people are Team Vienna following the joint interview. However, rumors of Vienna cheating with an ex-boyfriend hit the net last week. The said ex-boyfriend is Brian Lee Smith, who was actually arrested and charged with harassing Vienna back in 2009.
One of the fake emails from Vienna to Brian Lee read “You are my life. I love you so much and can’t wait to be in your arms again.” Lee then replied to Vienna, “u are all I want!!!! I want to sex u up so bad baby!” Yes he really fake wrote “I want to sex u up so bad.’
Vienna has denied the emails are real and has threatened to sue over the fake emails. Sources close to Vienna also say she has had no contact with Brian since his 2009 arrest.
RadarOnline also interviewed Vienna this past weekend as she partied in Hollywood. “I”m moving on with my life and I’m not looking back,” Vienna told Radar. “I’m happy to have my smile back, it’s been a long time and I’m really ready to live my life again,” she said.
It’s just week 1 in the Big Brother household and a lot is starting to unfold already!
The premiere episode ended with housemate Hayden winning the Head of Household, while Andrew, who volunteered to sit out the HOH competition was declared ineligible for eviction.
The biggest surprise comes in the form of a new twist. The Saboteur delivered a message to the houseguests informing them that two of their cast members are lifelong friends and already had an alliance before entering the BB game. No word yet on who the two HGs are.
In this week’s spoilers, the two nominees are revealed as well as the POV winner. A showmance is also brewing between two of the housemates, can you guess who?
VH1 has now unveiled the cast of Ochocinco: The Ultimate Catch! The dating show follows NFL superstar and former Dancing With The Stars alum Chad Ochocinco as he tries to find love amongst 85 women. Yes 85 women.
However Chad, who was romantically linked with his DWTS partner Cheryl Burke earlier this year, will be eliminating majority of those women to get to his final 17 top choices in the premiere episode of the show, which debuts tonight July 11th at 9/8c on VH1.
There was a minor scandal involving Chad and his choice of women that hit the blogs as filming began on the show last month. A contestant on the show and someone working in production alleged that Chad did not want any African American women on his show, and that he wanted “all the black girls to be “cut”, except for 1.”
Chad allegedly wanted to keep the Latina and brunette White girls because he believed they are “better” for him. The producers had to Chad into keeping two black women as part of his final 17.
Chad did deny the claims, stating that “certain girls” were mad they got sent home and that he’s colorblind. Oddly enough, a look at the 17 finalists show only 3 black women.
Also premiering tonight is the second season of Terell Owen’s reality show – The T.O. Show. VH1 promises season 2 will feature TO leaving Buffalo, rocking a wig, possibly rekindling an old flame, all while embracing fatherhood. Also returning are TO’s two longtime friends, Kita Williams and Monique Jackson, to yell at him help him make better life decisions.The new season premieres tonight at at 10:30/9:30c.
The cast of Ochocinco: The Ultimate Catch is below -
While Jill Zarin has on many occasions been referred to as a “blogger’s dream” due to her many faux pas this season – think babygate, amazongate etc. Well I’m here to debunk that notion, as her co-star Kelly Bensimon is the REAL blogger’s dream.
The Real Housewives of New York City star, who might or might not be in dire need of anti-psychotic meds, is simply the gift that keeps on giving. For starters, the above picture of Kelly was taken just this week on July 7th as she attempted to hail a cab in the streets of NYC. As if the above photo as well as more nutty photos of her from the hail a cab event weren’t good enough to make a story, Kelly then proceeded to write some more nonsensical rants on her twitter page, that is of course, when she’s not busy linking non flattering articles and videos of herself to her followers.
“enjoy what the press writes. everyone needs content, let them use my tweets, youtube.com videos whatever they need. its content,” is perhaps the only tweet Kelly wrote that actually made sense. And thank you Kelly for all the crazy content you give.
It all started when some sites and blogs started writing about her insane starvation diet. You know the one she shared with Star magazine that has her eating 2 oranges for breakfast, brown rice, broccoli and tofu for lunch, and salad with shrimp for dinner, six days a week. Well she received a lot of criticism, deservedly so, for her starvation diet, which is even more unhealthy when you add in the fact that this woman runs in NYC traffic 6 – 7 times a week.
Kelly re-affirmed that she does indeed eat that diet via twitter but denied the diet is 700 calories a day as claimed by many blogs. She tweeted, “the kkb diet is am: two oranges, lunch: veggies, brown rice, and tofu with any sauce, dinner: 2 chicken breasts/salad. 7 day: off,” later adding, “texaminer. I said it was 700 calories which is humanly in possible. Sorry examiner, gotta call u out.” I’m guessing she meant to add a ‘never’ in front of said, and the examiner is a site the publishes blogs, one of which criticized her diet.
Well let’s examine the KKB diet then shall we. The calorie count comes directly from WebMD’s food calorie counter.
Breakfast – 2 oranges: 124 Calories (Medium sized orange at 62 cals per orange)
Lunch – Brown rice, tofu and broccoli: 356 Calories (1 cup Brown rice – 216 cals, 1 cup brocolli – 52 cals, 1/2 cup tofu – 88 cals)
Dinner – Salad with shrimp: 192 Calories (1.5 cup Salad with shrimp with no dressing – 106 cals, dressing – Italian, 2 Tbs – 86 cals)
Total: 672 Calories
So Kelly Bensimon eats a diet of 672 calories a day, assuming she uses 2 tablespoons of salad dressing instead of one. The 700 calories the other blogs dubbed her diet is apparently generous. “I run eveyday for 2miles and do 30 lunges on each leg,” tweeted Kelly. A 42-year-old woman who runs two miles seven days a week is only taking in 672 calories a day folks! Eating disorder anyone?
The nuttyness doesn’t end with the diet. Kelly also stated she would only return for a 4th season of the NYC Housewives “if they upgrade the cast to REAL New York A-list women.”
Below are more interesting tweets by Kelly:
“bullying doesnt discriminate. its ugly and pointless.”
“i wish they’d show the real me. kids, dogs, horses, creativity,charity,and hard work doesn”t sell. people like fighting.”
“crazy sells. noone likes the nice girl. reality tv is meant to entertain. talk shows teach/preach.”
“PLAYBOY had an outreach of 239 million. i want to do it again at 50.”
“reality tv should be about REAL people, not fabricated reality stars. its a bad example for women. i want people to aspire to greatness”
These my folks, are the worlds of a self proclaimed Colombia Columbia graduate. Really nothing else to add at this point but I do have to ask the question, does Kelly have “people” working for her? You know like a publicist or manager of some sort to advise her against making an asinine anti bullying PSA video, or tell her not to share a 700 calories a day diet with millions of people. Perhaps its time for her loved ones to step in and start feeding her, while also taking away her internet twitter access.
Bethenny Frankel also made a funny when she said this week that “The whole of NBC Universal doesn’t have enough money for me to hang out with Jill and Kelly right now.” Can you blame her? NBC Universal owns the Bravo network by the way.
TELL US – WHAT ARE YOUR THOUGHTS ON KELLY’S DIET? DO YOU THINK SHE HAS AN EATING DISORDER?
