Jlo had played coy on a return telling BBC1 just last month, “I don’t know. I haven’t been forced to make a decision and I’m glad about that because honestly I’m very on the fence about it.” The first year judge added, “I had an amazing time doing it and I loved it, but I have a lot other things happening, and it’s going to come down to me making a choice of what I want to do for the next year.”
Sources revealed a while back that this was a negotiation ploy by Jlo who received a mere $12 million in comparison to the reported $18 million fellow new judge Steven Tyler received. It is rumored Jlo was offered a staggering $20 million to return!
According to E!, the announcement of Jlo’s return is expected any day.

According to a new report, Celebrity Rehab is going on an indefinite hiatus.
RadarOnline states that while the sixth season featuring Michael Lohan, Amy Fisher, and Bai Ling is currently airing on VH1, any new season following that is up in the air.
The reason? Dr. Drew Pinsky no longer has time to do the show. “The decision was made to put the show on hiatus because Dr. Drew Pinsky is just too busy to continue to do the show,” reveals a source connected to the show.
“Dr. Drew can be seen nightly on HLN’s Dr. Drew Show, and this fall, he has another television project he is going to be involved with, Life Changers, which is a Telepictures show,” the source states adding that the amount of time it takes Dr. Drew to do ‘Rehab’ is a “tremendous” amount of time.
The source also reveals that Dr. Drew is hoping this hiatus is temporary. He would “absolutely love to revisit doing the show again in the future when he has the time. Dr. Drew really enjoyed doing the show, even though it could be very emotionally grueling at times.”
Perhaps this could also be related to recent Celebrity Rehab headlines as two of the show’s alums, Jeff Conaway and Mike Starr, passed away this year. Mike died of a drug overdose while Jeff passed away due to complications related to prescription drug use.

During a recent visit to Canada to promote her Skinnygirl drink line, the Bethenny Ever After star gave an interview to the Globe and Mail during which she displayed her trademark brutal honesty. “That doesn’t bother me,” she retorts when asked about the lawsuit. “That’s frivolous and I would spend $20-million to punish him for wasting my time, the legal system’s time and that bag of bullshit. I will send back all the purses and all the diamonds and everything to sue that guy’s ass and put him where he belongs.”
And when it comes to her Bravo reality show, Bethenny was asked if there’s a part of her people do not get to see on the show. “I get very moody and grouchy,” she admits. “Sometimes, I’m from a place of no.” You don’t say Bethenny?

And what is Bethenny’s advice to her fans who would like to be in her shoes? “I have always believed in myself,” she states about her work ethic. “You treat every job as if it’s the most important job, and you will end up where I have ended up.”
Meanwhile ABC announced that Bethenny will return to The View talk show on Tuesday, July 12 as a guest co-host.
The isn’t Bethenny’s first time on the show as she also co-hosted last summer during which she got into a minor disagreement with Joy Behar over breast feeding. After Bethenny complained that that breastfeeding can be “the hardest thing in the whole world,” Joy stated, “I didn’t find it hard at all” and that Bethenny “shouldn’t tell women” it’s difficult.

Another source adds, “If he is given time and the okay, he and Kim will do their own show. But if his other obligations force him to not film as much, then they will just put all the stuff they’ve shot toward Keeping Up with the Kardashians.” So there you have it. Kimmie is talking out her butt about the pitfalls of being famous while planning to become even more famous with a new reality show.
As for her relationship with Kris, Kim tells Cosmo she snagged him by playing hard to get. “I thought he was cute, and he gravitated toward me because I was so anti-relationship at that point,” she tells Cosmopolitan. “He wasn’t used to that.”
So how did Kim realize Kris was the one? “Often in relationships, you try to mold yourself into someone you think the guy wants. But with Kris, I was totally myself from the get-go. And he was everything I’d ever wanted in a man,” she said. Kim and Kris will reportedly tie the knot next month.
