RadarOnline is stating the counseling sessions, taped months before the tragic suicide, will air in the next few weeks. “Bravo has done major editing of the show, to be sensitive to the fact that Russell killed himself. However the decision was made to air the footage of the therapy sessions,” a Bravo insider reveals.
The insider goes on to add that Taylor is in full support of Bravo’s decision. “Viewers will see the two of them with their marriage counselor, Dr. Charles Sophy, as well as individual sessions with Taylor. Russell’s one-on-one sessions will not air. Taylor is completely supportive of the decision, and thinks it will help battered women to make the decision to leave an abusive relationship, just like she did,” the insider adds.

Nancy, 51, reveals she has already shed over 10 pounds in just a few weeks of dancing! “I’ve inadvertently lost 10 lbs. on the I’m-too-tired-to-eat diet,” Nancy told PEOPLE on Friday. “By the time I get the children [3-year-old twins Lucy and John David] ready for school, then practice and then come home, I’m like exhausted.”
Unlike some other controversial figures who have danced before her and shall remain nameless, coughs – Kate Gosselin, Nancy surprisingly reveals she is enjoying her time on the show despite the grueling schedule. “If you would have told me five to seven hours of dance practice was fun, I would have never believed you,” she said, “but it is.”
Nancy, who is partnered with DWTS newbie Tristan MacManus, however admits she sometimes gets nervous and we’re guessing finding herself in the bottom two on Tuesday night did not help matters. “My nerves are much, much worse,” she said. “I’m a fish out of water on the dance floor. It’s a lot more nerve wracking than trying a murder case.”
In other news, the first DWTS dating rumors have finally emerged! In what we have come to expect every season, Star magazine is reporting that things are beginning to get hot and heavy between dancing partners Kristin Cavallari and Mark Ballas. Kristin was dumped by her NFL fiance Jay Cutler back in July, while Mark and American Idol alum Pia Toscano ended their 5-month relationship just two weeks ago.
Star reports the two share an “obvious attraction” that recently had “tongues wagging” during a recent outing. “She was sitting on his lap, and he nuzzled her neck,” an eyewitness tells the mag. “They were having dinner with Derek Hough but didn’t pay him any attention because they were too wrapped up in each other.”
And in usual DWTS fashion, Kristin and Mark issued a non-denial denial! Aka even though they might not really be dating, they would prefer fans to think they are so they can keep voting for them!
PEOPLE magazine caught up with the dancing couple to ask about the dating rumors. “That s––t’s already started,” Mark, 25, so eloquently stated. “She is a sweetheart. We have a lot of fun. We laugh a lot. We’re getting along great.”
Kristin also chimed in with her non-denial. “I kind of expect [the dating rumors], to be honest,” she says. “But that’s what happens when you put two people together.”
As for what led to the Mark and Pia break-up, the two officially stated they were simply too busy to keep seeing each other, though sources close to Mark reveal Pia became too clingy and jealous of his relationship with Kristin. Sources close to Pia however deny that stating Mark wanted to end things to make way for his showmance with Kristin.
A new episode of DWTS airs tonight on ABC at 8/7c.
Lisa, 51, sold her mega 17,000 square feet Beverly Park Mansion just weeks ago for a whopping $19 million! The reason? The home was just “too big” for her and hubby Ken Todd. You don’t say Lisa!
“We had such a great offer on the house, one we couldn’t refuse,” Lisa told RadarOnline. “It’s 17,000 square feet and my daughter, Pandora and son, Max, already moved out of the nest. So it’s just Ken and me and it’s really too big for two people.”
Following the sale, Lisa and Ken wasted no time in finding another mansion in the 90210 zip code. Lisa’s new home is 8,801 sq. feet and priced at $10.2 million! The 5-bedroom, 8-bath home boasts a two story library, a luxurious spa-like master suite, a chef’s kitchen, and a media room. It also features an outdoor living area including, water elements, large swimmers pool & exterior guest house.
In addition to the new home purchase, Lisa also leased another mansion in Oprah’s Montecito neighborhood — with an option to buy it.
Lisa adds that her next move is decorating… of course. “I’m never happy with anything I buy,” says Lisa. “As a designer, I like to design things my way just Villa Blanca restaurant and my new bar SUR. The new house needs extensive remodeling to suit me and my husband’s needs.”
The $19 million Lisa received for her mansion is a far cry from the $29 million asking price put on the home back in November. However, Lisa still walks away with a healthy profit as she and Ken purchased the home back in 2004 for $14 million.

It appeared no topics were off limits as Dr. Phil hit Taylor, 40, with the hard questions. Taylor was asked to explain her name change, her lavish spending despite financial turmoil, and whether or not she believes the housewives contributed to Russell Armstrong’sdeath. Below are the highlights –
Taylor On Name Change – Early on in the interview, Dr. Phil asked Taylor about her name changes, most notably changing her last name to ‘Ford’ before she married Russell. Reports had stated she would tell people she was related to the Ford auto family. Taylor however claimed she changed her name in honor of the fashion designer Tom Ford. “I’m a big fan of Tom Ford and he’s a designer. Tom Ford, Taylor Ford, it’s similar so I just decided to legally change it,” said Taylor.
From Oklahoma To Beverly Hills – Taylor was also asked how she went from a small town girl from Oklahoma to having her life in disarray in Beverly Hills. “I believe that the majority of it stems from a lack of self-esteem, having abandonment issues and clinging to a relationship because I never addressed my own self-esteem issues. And I was willing to put my own well being aside.” She added that her lack of self-esteem came from growing up in an abusive household without a father, adding that she had a lot of “shame.”
Taylor’s Reasons For Doing RHOBH – “I would say that my primary motivation for doing the show was because I was in a dangerous situation in my home life and I felt like there was protection offered to me by having cameras in my life because how’s anything going to happen if there’s a camera there to document everything.”
Why Did Russell Do The Show? – Dr. Phil wondered why Russell, whom Taylor says physically abused her regularly, would agree to do a reality show. Taylor stated Russell simply felt he was untouchable: “There was a part of him that thought that he was impenetrable and that the world would fall in love with him.” When asked if she would do the show all over again knowing what she knows now, Taylor responded: “I don’t think the end result of what happened in the Tornado would have been any different with or without the camera present.”
Did RHOBH Contribute To Russell’s Death? – Taylor made it clear that the reality show should not be blamed for Russell’s suicide stating: “If we peel back the onion a little bit. The fact is that all the things again that he was concerned about coming out were a reality. The bankruptcy, the police reports about physical abuse in the past, me having reconstructive surgery on my eye — all of that was factual. That was reality.”
She added,”The fact that there was a camera sitting over here doesn’t change the fact that he made choices that were unacceptable. To feel as though that you’re going to be scrutinized for harming other people — that’s to be expected. “
Taylor Blames Finances For Russell’s Death – Taylor reveals that after spending many sleepless nights thinking about what was the final straw, she believes it was the “financial avalanche” Russell was facing. “I discover every day the gravity of what that looked like,” she said. “The one thing he wanted in his life more than anything was to be financially successful… And when he felt that he was failing at that, I think he saw the financial avalanche that was ahead of him and he felt he would never be able to crawl out from under it.”
Taylor Explains Lavish Spending – Like many others, Dr. Phil also wondered why the couple continued to spend lavishly amid financial difficulty. Most notably the now infamous $60,000 birthday birthday Taylor threw for her 5-year-old daughter Kennedy in season 1. Taylor pretty much stated that she did not pay $60,000 as the party vendors gave her free items and services in exchange for the free publicity. “Because that’s the value doesn’t mean that I wrote that check,” she added. Taylor also revealed she never had access to any of the couple’s finances.
Taylor stated that she couldn’t have been a gold digger because when she married Russell, he had just filed bankruptcy. “When I married my husband, he was penniless,” she said. She also added that Russell was “very charismatic” though he didn’t come across that way on the show.

16 and Pregnantstar Ebony Jackson is telling her side of the story after CPS took her daughter away this week. The former MTV star opens up about her depression and suicidal thoughts after suffering a miscarriage.
The problems for Ebony began this week after cops raided the home she shares with her husband Josh Rendon following an anonymous complaint. What they discovered was pretty horrific. The police report reveals cops found “human and dog feces on the floors, walls, and clothing” in every room of the house. Their house was also “full of flies and in some areas, maggots.”
As a result, the couple’s 2-year-old daughter Jocelyn was taken away by CPS and now remains in temporary foster care, while Ebony and Josh were arrested on charges of endangering the welfare of a minorand possession of drug paraphernalia.
In an interview with the HollyBaby blog, Ebony, 20, opens up about her struggles. “I had been suffering with depression. I lost a kid, so I’ve been going through my own personal problems and so I haven’t been able to be the wife, mom that I’m supposed to be,” she says. “Neither of us wanted any of this to happen… One of my old friends [called us in] and she reported a lot of false things.”
“We never have our house that dirty,” adds Ebony, blaming the “dog feces” mess on the fact that puppies were just born in her home. “Our daughter never lives like that. Our daughter is always taken care of. She will always be taken care of. Our daughter always comes first in our lives and I don’t want anyone to think that we are just a couple of drug heads because we’re not.”
When asked to explain the synthetic marijuana that was found in their home, Ebony takes full responsibility for it. “It was mine,” says Ebony. “It had nothing to do with Josh. It was all mine and I was just doing it to self harm … after the loss of my son, I just lost him two months ago.”
Ebony goes on to reveal that her emotional issues were triggered by the loss of an unborn son. “I’ve been depressed, anxious, dealing with the loss of [the baby]. I was already hospitalized at the beginning of June — for suicide prevention,” she said going on to add that she’s looking to get help now. “I’m going to go back to therapy to find the right depression medication… I just want to let all of our fans know we are sorry for letting them down and for letting Jocelyn down.”
Unfortunately for Ebony, there might be more trouble coming her way. TMZ is reporting this morning that Josh is now at risk of getting kicked out of the military.
Josh, who is a member of the Air Force, is currently under investigation in relation to his arrest this week. A rep for Little Rock Air Force Base confirms Josh could indeed be discharged.
Even worse, if Josh is discharged, he and Ebony will lose their home as they currently live on the base.
