Kourtney Kardashian is sharing more photos of her new born baby, Mason Dash Disick, who turned a one-month-old on Thursday.
The Keeping Up With The Kardashians star recently said the following of being a new mother “Having Mason in my life is the most amazing, indescribable thing that’s ever happened to me,” she recently wrote on her website. “I am so in love with him and love having my own little family with Scott and Mason.”
Her younger sister, Kim Kardashian, also recently shot down rumors that Kourtney was engaged.
“I don’t think Kourtney really is thinking about that right now,” said Kim. “She’s not really focused on getting married. I don’t think she wants that responsibility right now. She’s just having a good time loving being a mom. And I think she’s just going to stick with that for right now.”
Simon, who took to hisblog last week to shed some light on the couple’s marital issues, however has a stern warning for the network. “This is a private matter and should be discussed in a court of law, not on a reality show,” said Simon. “My entire family and especially my children have paid a very dear price for the success of Bravo’s Real Housewives of Orange County. If they choose to exploit my family at this difficult time, it would be disgusting.”
Tamra moved out of the couple’s house and into a two-bedroom apartment, leading Simon to file for divorce days later much to Tamra’s surprise according to sources. Simon has accused Tamra of being “verbally abusive and committed acts of disloyalty and infidelity.” Tamra has denied the accusations.
Tamra’s “arch nemesis” & costar Gretchen Rossi claims she was surprised to hear about the couple’s split. Here’s what Gretchen had to say about the Barney’s split on her blog -
“Well, the next subject is very interesting to me because I have a lot of questions when it comes to Tamra and Simon’s talk outside. Not because I care to talk about them, but because they care to talk about me. First, if what is being written in the press today is true about Simon filing for divorce then I am so very sad that Tamra and Simon could not work out their differences for their children’s sake. There were some pretty harsh accusations being made on Simon’s part about Tamra in those papers. I bring this up because I think in tonight’s episode when Simon is talking about how happy they are, it is obvious that Tamra does not feel the same way. I thought “poor guy he has no idea.” Then to hear Tamra say she “would leave him if it was just the two of them,” WOW! That was a reprehensible remark if you ask me, I would be so devastated if I heard my spouse say that about me on national TV. We never truly know what goes on behind closed doors now do we though. For a very long time now I have heard lots of things about their marriage and I have chosen to stay out of it and not comment because it was none of my business. The only thing I knew for sure was that things were a little off because I was CC’d on an e-mail last January from Simon to Tamra titled “Your BS and Lies.” It definitely made me question if their marriage was truly as solid as they tried to portray at times. No marriage is perfect but those were some pretty tough words to e-mail a spouse. I do believe that Simon loved Tamra almost to a fault and he tried to protect her, even from herself at times. From what I could see she would open her mouth about things without having all the facts and he would have to be behind her picking up the pieces. That to me is a man who stands by his woman, even when he knew she was wrong. Good on him for taking loyalty seriously.

The Montville Township Police Department tells TMZ they responded to an emergency call at 1:47 AM after a car struck a pole . Upon arriving, the cops found Giuseppe “Joe” Giudice at the scene.
Joe was taken to a hospital and after his blood sample was taken, he was charged with driving while intoxicated, reckless driving, careless driving, and failure to maintain a traffic lane.
Things got worse for Joe as he apparently had other warrants out for his arrest in Clifton, NJ over some city ordinance violations. After his release from the hospital, he was then handed over to the Clifton PD, where he was locked up and held on $2,625 bail. He was released at this morning at 6:20 AM.
RadarOnline is reporting the said staffer is senior producer Ryan Callahan, who was fired after rumors circulated that he became romantically involved with the 28 year old model from Richmond, VA.
Rozlyn has always maintained the affair never got physical. “What they mean by inappropriate relationship is not what inappropriate relationship means in the real world,” Rozlyn said. “I had a relationship with someone on the show that didn’t benefit them. We remained really close but we are not dating now.”
But that’s not all as Radar is also reporting Callahan has a reputation for being the ladies’ man despite being married. Photos of Callahan have yet to leak but he has worked on shows including The Bachelor, The Bachelorette, PussyCat Dolls and The Cougar.
In related news, the war of words between the show’s host Chris Harrison and Rozlyn continues to rage on. Chris maintains Rozlyn is not being truthful about what really happened. “She’s definitely not telling the truth,” said Harrison during Tuesday’s Entertainment Tonight broadcast.
“Not only was there an inappropriate relationship, but it was a physical relationship between Rozlyn, between our crew member while she was on the show, period,” affirms Chris.
Rozlyn on the other hand gets more specific on what took place between she and the producer. When ET’s Kevin Frazierasks Rozlyn if she kissed the producer, she replies, “I did not kiss the producer.” Did she hug him? “I’m sure I did at some point.” Did any physical contact happen that could’ve been interpreted as inappropriate? “No, there was nothing between the producer and myself that any sane person would consider inappropriate.”
UPDATE: According to Radar, the producer Ryan is still married though his wife Stephanie Thorpe filed for divorce back in May 2009. E! News is also reporting he had a girlfriend while working on the show. A photo of Ryan is below -
According to E! News, LuAnn has already written and recorded a song titled “Money Can’t Buy Class,” a dance song inspired by her memoir/etiquette book Class With the Countess. LuAnn is however claiming she isn’t taking the singing thing too seriously, “I’m not trying to be Madonna, but I love to sing, and I can sing,” she says. “I sing all the time for my friends.”
So who would the Countess like to duet with? You will be surpised by LuAnn’s answer – “I want to work with Akon,” she said. “I love Akon. I saw him perform at the Apollo Theater. I took my daughter to see him because she’s such a huge fan, and I realized how great he was.”
When asked if a duet with Atlanta housewife Kim Zolciak is in the future, the Countess gave a somewhat polite answer. “I can’t see myself teaming up with her for a duet,” LuAnn said. “I think I’m going to fly solo for the moment.”
LuAnna also reveals she is dating again after her highly publicized split from husband Count Alexandre de Lesseps, who left her for an Ethopian princess last year. “I’m going slowly, but I’m very happy,” she said. “I’m finally ready to move forward. It’s taken a long time, and I’ve been through a lot, but I have been dating.”
She confirms some of her dating escapades will make it on to the 3rd season of the Real Housewives of New York City.
Sources reveal to E! News that the the show’s producers are seriously considering having host Ryan Seacrest double up as a host and judge as the producers deal with the question of how to keep the hit show afloat since Simon announced he will be leaving after this season.
“Anything is possible,” says an Idol insider. “Stay tuned.”
It seems having Ryan replace him as a judge was Simon’s idea as he told told Extra during a Monday interview that he feels Seacrest “actually would” have interest in replacing him on American Idol’s judging panel. “I genuinely think that if he could get off that stage quick enough to go into the judge’s chair, he would [host] and judge,”said Simon.
TMZ is also reporting that people are on the set of AI are talking about Pop Icon Elton John possibly replacing Simon. Apparently Elton knowing music, having a bitchy attitude, and being British all work in his favor.
Plus according to E! News, most readers would prefer Simon’s replacement to have a British accent. As of today, Ryan, Elton and the FOX network have yet to comment on the possibility of Simon’s replacement.
The issue being the drama that ensued during the last episode when Gretchen invited Lynne Curtin’s daughter Alexa on a shopping trip in an attempt to talk to her about her personal issues. Gretchen suspected Alexa might be depressed based on some of her comments and actions. This seemed to backfire as Alexa was taken back and did not feel comfortable opening up to Gretchen. Lynne also appeared to be upset as she did not feel Gretchen should get involved with her daughter’s personal issues. Considering how her other daughter, Raquel Curtinturned out, Lynne should perhaps be more open to others wanting to help her family, but that’s another story for a different day.
I blogged last week that I wasn’t sure whether or not Gretchen was sincere in her attempt to help Alexa. I suspected it might have been self serving. Well it turns out she might have actually had a legit reason for reaching out to Alexa, as it turns out Gretchen holds a degree in Psychology with a minor in Family Studies and Child Development to boot. Shocking right? More from Gretchen’s blog below -
“Next we see me reaching out to Alexa. Wow, how interesting to see this played out. First of all it barely shows what was truly discussed in that moment with Alexa and how much she opened up to me. What I do know is that I had heard her say on three different occasions that she was depressed and felt like she wanted to talk to someone. It was weighing on my heart and I decided to do something about it. Not because I think I am all knowing, but rather to be a responsible adult. I ALSO have a degree in Psychology and a minor in Family Studies and Child Development. I was trained through my schooling to be very aware of signs such as the ones Alexa was portraying and to not sit back and wait for the worst to happen but rather to be proactive and offer to listen.
I do believe I went about it the right way by first calling and ASKING Lynne if it was OK, and then letting her know that I was going to see if Alexa would open up a little more to me because I wasn’t her parent. I had told Lynne a couple of times I was worried about Alexa, but Lynne seemed to blow it off and I just figured she was the parent that didn’t want to see anything wrong. I had noticed her girls acting out by drinking and other sorts of behavior. I never once spoke an ill word to Alexa about Lynne or Frank and their ability as parents, even though I have my opinions about the way they choose to discipline their girls, and please do not be mistaken that I think I know how to raise a child because I do not have any of my own yet. I do however see many mentors out there able to change and help others simply by listening and caring, for example Oprah. I am not comparing myself to Oprah in any way, but I am saying that she does not have any children, but is constantly able to help children in need, young girls, teenagers, etc. by taking notice to their pain, hurt or signs of need. I don’t think you have the ability to be a good parent just because you pushed out a kid. I think it takes dedication, work, heartache, compassion and discipline in order to discipline your own kids. I only hope to be a good parent one day and I sincerely hope that if I have a child that is hurting or struggling that my dearest and closest friends might be able to point out or take notice when I am blind to it.
It was interesting to hear what Alexa had to say to her mom about me. Alexa specifically said to me at the store that “It’s hard cause sometimes I feel like there is no one there to talk to me,” but yet says something completely opposite to her mom and plays it off to Lynne that I was out of line? It was like they were in their own little world, and talking about stuff that never even happened. They said I was trying to talk to Alexa to take the pressure off of myself and make it about her … HUH?? What the heck are they talking about? I actually went out of my way to say I have been in Alexa’s position before and I made some poor choices because of it and I was trying to avoid the same happening to her. For Alexa to say one thing to me and then say another to her mom about the interaction was very hurtful, but at the same time I can imagine that a child won’t tell their parent how they really feel. I know that Lynne knew where my heart was with Alexa because Lynne and I talked in detail about it. I also don’t know who Alexa and Lynne think they are kidding, but when they say “they talk all the time” in the gym we know that is bull honky because two episodes earlier Alexa is complaining about their communication together and then tells a therapist that she can’t talk to her mom at all anymore! Seriously, who are they kidding? I am not sure why Lynne would say she’s not sure if she can trust me now, when I came to her first before I went to talk to Alexa. She and I have not seen eye-to-eye this season and you will probably see more of that to come in future episodes. I will always have a soft spot for Lynne, but this was a very disappointing rift in our friendship.”
