According to the OC Register, the housewife and her husband Frank Curtin have paid the overdue rent on their Aliso Viejo, CA home, thus avoiding another eviction on their $2595 a month rental home (the same one they can be seen living in on the show).
“They paid last month and they staved off the wolf,” said Steven Silverstein, attorney for the homeowner. “My client got her money so we stopped the eviction.”
ABC has announced that coming soon on their network is a new show titled Bachelor Pad, which will feature past Bachelor and Bachelorette contestants living and competing together in a Big Brother style challenge.
Bachelor Pad will bring back 20 memorable contestants from the previous 13 Bachelor and five Bachelorette seasons, according to The Hollywood Reporter’s Live Feed blog. The program will represent the first “all-stars” reunion series for the franchise.
“All these people have been friends, been enemies, they date each other and bring all this great backstory to the show,” says executive producer Martin Hilton. “It seemed like there was an opportunity to combine that world with a new competitive reality show.”
Though the contestants have yet to be revealed, Hilton says top players and former winners of the previous seasons will be on the show. The show will feature various challenges, some inspired by incidents from past seasons. Contestants will be eliminated from the house at the end of each episode.
The Bachelor and Bachelorette host Chris Harrison will be hosting the show, which is set to premier during the summer.
Bethenny, who has received her own Bravo spinoff show titled “Bethenny’s Getting Married?” has been talking to vendors all over New York about getting them to ‘sponsor’ her wedding,” a well-placed source says of Bethenny’s upcoming nuptials to fiance Jason Hoppy.
“She wants everything and anything, and she isn’t shy about the fact that the cameras will be rolling during the event.” The source reveals that Bethenny has attempted to get everything, from her dress to the venue to a planner, for absolutely free.
It however seems Bethenny isn’t having much luck unlike the former “View” host Star Jones, who notoriously got vendors to fund her lavish wedding back in 2004. The vendors aren’t as eager to give Bethenny free items for product placement on her upcoming show as the show has yet to air. “The feedback has been that it’s just too much to ask for when there’s no payment involved – especially when one episode of a show hasn’t even aired yet,” says the insider.
The source insists Bethenny is refusing to take no for an answer and will keep trying to get free vendors. Another drama brewing is which of her housewives costars will be attending her wedding. Though Bethenny has invitedJill Zarin,LuAnn de Lesseps, Alex McCord, Ramona Singer and even Kelly Bensimon. There are rumors Jill might not attend as the two have drifted apart in the recent months.
One person who will be in attendance is Ramona as the tells the mag, “I’m definitely going to the wedding. Bethenny said, ‘I want you there,’ and I told her, ‘I support you in everything you do.”
Bethenny is however denying she was shopping around for sponsors. “If I had the time to find sponsors for my wedding I deserve 2 free weddings and a trip to Fiji” she insists.
The Real Housewives of Orange County’sTamra Barney appeared on Bravo’s Watch What Happens Live Thursday night , during which she denied cheating on her husbandSimon Barney.
Host Andy Cohen read out loud a facebook message he received from Simon just hours before the show went on live. Simon’s controlling message to Andy is below -
“Please be kind to my wife tonight, she’s very fragile and easily rattled. Keep in mind that she will have to live and see whatever you air tonight for the rest of her life. Tamra’s a wonderful person with a good heart, I don’t want to see her hurt anymore. So for the sake of her and our children, be kind to her.”
Tamra’s reply was “Wow.” According to Tamra, she believes Simon was very nervous about what she might say on the show. Just moments after she denied being unfaithful, Simon sent Andy another message telling him to ask Tamra about the 200 phone calls she made to her ex-boyfriend.
Tamra admitted making calls to her ex boyfriend, but said he was just a friend. Tamra — who said she had been quiet to avoid making the separation “a public issue” or media “circus” — said she believed Simon accused her of cheating because he knew with her celebrity status, the story would spread like wildfire.
Towards the end of the show, Tamra also revealed Simon threatened her that their three children, ages 11, 9 and 4, would be watching.
As for what led to the divorce, Tamra said that after a New Year’s Eve fight between she and Simon, she decided to leave the couple’s home on a “trial separation” basis. She said she “had to leave,” as she couldn’t continue living in 2010 the way she did in 2009.
Tamra and Simon have been married for 11 years.
In my opinion, Simon just made himself look worse by his behavior on the show (the facebook message to Andy and texting Andy during the show to bring up Tamra’s ex). Tamra surprisingly did appear to take the high road when it came to him. I’m sure there are lots of negative things she could have said about Simon if she really wanted to. Last night’s show just confirmed that he is indeed a very controlling man.

More details are coming out about the Bachelorstaffer involved in the affair scandal with contestant Rozlyn Papa. The said staffer, Ryan Callahan (pictured above), was a Senior Producer on the show. He has also worked on other shows including The Bachelorette, PussyCat Dolls and The Cougar.
According to E! News, Callahan “had a girlfriend that worked on the show at the time. They were together, and he cheated on her with [Papa].” The girlfriend has since broken up with him since details of the affair hit. RadarOnline also reports Callahan is still married, though his wife filed for divorce in May 2009.
And while 28-year-old Papa continues to maintain that she did not have a sexual relationship with Callahan, others continue to say things did get physical with Callahan. Jake Pavelka says in an interview airing Monday on the Ellen DeGeneres Show that other women in the house came up to tell him they had seen Rozlyn and Callahan getting physical with each other.
So what exactly does physical mean? Well recently eliminated contestant Ashley Elmore shed some light on that during a recent interview. According to Ashley, she heard her costars say they saw Rozlyn “snuggling” and “cuddling” with the producer, including lying on a couch with her hand on his thigh.
Jake also says he had began to develop feelings for Rozlyn. “I had strong feelings for Rozlyn,” says Pavelka, 31. “We had an unbelievable date.”
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.
