If you recall, we reported last month that Nene and hubby Gregg Leakeswere experiencing marital problems, made worse by her son’s recent arrests. According to a report this week, Nene reportedly left her husband for Charles, a player for the New Orleans Saints, and was also recently photographed without her wedding ring.
The rumor seemed somewhat believable as this isn’t the first time Nene has been leaked to the NFL player. Nene has however taken to her twitter to deny the news. She posted the following on Friday:
“Y r people saying i’m wit Charles Grant! I hosted his charity event last year & now were dating! How’s that possible when we don’t even talk
@WendyShow sorry girlfriend! Ur investigation is WRONG! I’m a very smart girl & my happiness is everything 2 me
@WendyShow I don’t date Charles Grant! If I did, I would tell’ya! PS: just because a person is mild manners means what? “
Nene’s wording is rather interesting, as she doesn’t deny a split from her husband Gregg. Makes you wonder…
According to PEOPLE, Bret, 47, was rushed to an undisclosed hospital Thursday night after complaining of excruciating headaches. A source says, “After several CAT scans, MRIs and an angiogram, [doctors] decided to keep Michaels in the ICU and are running several tests to determine the cause. [It] will be touch and go for the next few days while he is under intense observation.”
And just how serious is Bret’s condition? Well according to TMZ, those not receiving proper medical treatment after suffering a subarachnoid hemorrhage have a 20% to 30% chance of experiencing a second bleed within the first month, and that second bleed yields a 70% mortality rate.
The good news for now is Bret is said to be “awake, in good spirits and talking.” Rock of Love season 2 winner Ambre Laketells TMZ she’s spoken with people who are close to Bret who say he’s stabilized and conscious. However the next 24 to 48 hours are said to be critical, and Bret will be closely monitored.
Also speaking out is ROL season 3 winner, Taya Parker. Taya, who is no longer with Bret, spoke to RadarOnline, giving them the following statement: “It’s been a very difficult time. Between his appendectomy and this current situation, everyone that cares for him has been vigilant with their prayers and hopes for a full recovery. My heart and thoughts are with him always. Bret’s determination and drive have always been one of his most endearing qualities. His love for his family and his fans makes his heart a heart that’s larger than life. Bret has overcome many adversities and struggles in his life, and he always handles himself with dignity. I could not be more proud of him, the person he is, and the loves that drive his life.”
Russell Hantzof Survivors: Heroes vs. Villains was arrested this morning, reports TMZ.
According to TMZ, Russell was arrested in Louisiana early this morning for attacking someone at a street festival. Law enforcement sources tell TMZ Russellwas partying at the Festival International de Louisiane, when he allegedly “shoved” somebody to the pavement.
Russell, 37, was then arrested and taken to jail, but has now been released.
On the topic of Survivor, how amazing was last night’s episode? Parvati‘s move to give both of her idols to Sandra and Jerri was not only genius and entertaining, but proved to be effective as the Heroes’ JT was sent packing.
The question now however seems to be whether or not Parvati made the best move for the long term. When you think about it, Sandra isn’t exactly on her “team” or “alliance.” So why waste an idol to save her? More importantly, why not get a deal from Sandra before you decide to use your idol on her? Plus by not telling Russell about her idol, she has now somewhat alienated her strongest ally in the game.
So it seems though while a great move at the moment, it will likely hurt Parvati in the long run, and I still can’t get over just how much JT trusted Russell. Hello? The guy’s on the villain’s team JT! It will be interesting to see how this all plays out. The show’s definitely getting good.
UPDATE – Russell’s mugshot has been released, as can be seen above.

According to Radar, Gretchen failed to show up for a court appearance Thursday thus resulting in the warrant. Gretchen’s reason for her court appearance? Well it all ties back to the $18,000 awarded to her ex,Jay Photoglou, in a defamation lawsuit he filed against her last year.
Gretchen was supposed to be in court for a debtor examination related to money she owes Jay. This all started after Gretchen unsuccessfully tried to take out a restraining order against Jay last year, alleging he harassed and threatened to kill her, her current boyfriend, Slade Smiley, and her dog. Jay, then in turn decided to sue her.
A lawyer from the firm Gretchen hired showed up in court and asked for a continuance because Gretchen’s lawyer was unavailable,” Jay’s lawyer, Orlando Castano told RadarOnline. “Gretchen didn’t show up and the judge then issued a bench warrant for her arrest, holding it to give them the opportunity for her to come to court. She must show up next Thursday at 8:30 a.m.”
“She is just making Jay jump through hoops to get his money he deserves,” Jay’s attorney tells E! News. “We know she has the money. She’s just drawing this out.”
But we will likely not be seeing Gretchen in handcuffs anytime soon as the Judge in the case held the bench warrant for a week, meaning the Gretchen will remain free, for now at least.
Just two weeks after announcing his decision to take his ex-wifeKate Gosselin back to court in an attempt to gain primary custody of his eight children, comes news that Jon Gosselinhas now fired his attorney Anthony List.
It all started two weeks ago when Jon and his attorney claimed Kate was an “absentee parent” due to her decision to appear on Dancing With The Stars. Jon then filed papers to try to gain custody of his kids, and also requesting a reduction on his reported $22,000 a month child support payments.
Jon has now had a change of heart and claims he wants to work this out with Kate. He twittered the following, “Kate, her attorneys and I are moving forward to work out things privately and amicably.” He continued, “Mr. Anthony List Sr., Esq., is not my representing attorney; I terminated him on April 15, 2010. He has no legal right to speak to the press or anyone on my behalf.”
UsWeekly is also reporting that Jon, 33, is strapped for cash and looking to sell his BMW, which he purchased last year for $30,000. “Jon is selling his BMW to raise cash until he gets a job,” says a source. “He’s hoping to get $25,000 for it.”
The source also added that Jon wants badly to be back on TV. “He has been lobbying TLC to get a show of his own,” the insider says. (Kate’s new show – Twist of Kate debuts this summer.) “It’s killing him that Kate is having all of this success.”
In other Kate news, UsWeekly reports that Kate’s recent elimination from DWTS isn’t resulting in her spending more time with her kids. According to US, Kate returned home on Thursday with her eight children, only staying home for 20 minutes, before taking off in a limo with her bodyguard.
Where was she headed? Apparently, she was headed to NYC to appear on Live with Regis and Kelly Friday.
TheYBF.com was able to get their hands on some raunchy nude photos of the reality star. Evelyn, who was has a 17 year old daughter, apparently sent the naughty pics to a former sex buddy, and not her ex-fiance of 10 years, former NBA player Antoine Walker.
So what’s a Bravo housewife to do when you find yourself the most hated housewife in Bravo history and your new book is being plagued by bad reviews online? Well, if you’re Jill Zarin of the Real Housewives of New York City, you log into your amazon.com account, change your name to Susan Saunders, and start leaving good reviews for your book. Unfortunately for Jill/Susan, she has been caught red handed by Gawker.com.
To make things worse for Jill, there is photographic evidence. According to Gawker, it all started when Jill someone going by the name of Susan Saunders decided to reply to a negative review. What Jill/Susan wrote is below courtesy of Zap2it -
This made some suspicious, and they decided to investigate by clicking on Susan’s amazon account profile, and low and behold, it turns out Susan Saunders’ Amazon.com account belongs to a certain Jill Shapiro. For those out of the loop, Jill Shapiro was Jill’s former name before marrying current husband Bobby Zarin. Jill’s daughter is named Allyson Paige Shapiro.
You might perhaps be thinking, that account might belong to another Jill Shapiro that isn’t our Jill. Fortunately that theory can be Debunked as this Jill Shapiro forgot to delete her wish list which includes items for a certain Bobby Zarin and a certain Allyson Shapiro. To make matters worse, when you visit Susan’s amazon profile, it shows her only amazon buddy as being David Zarin, who just happens to be Bobby’s brother. And oh yeah, Jill’s date of birth just happens to be November 30th as listed above.
Jill took to her facebook yesterday, accusing a crazed fan of making up the account. “Some crazy fans are saying I wrote my own review. I love the book, of course. People in my life have written wonderful things about the book. Some fans of the show need to find something else to do then write hateful things about me and my family. It is sad and I feel sorry for them. If you read the book and liked it, …please write positive reviews. Thank you for all the support!”
Gawker, a reputable news outlet, broke the story, not some crazy fans. And to Debunk the theory that a crazy fan might have made up this amazon account to frame Jill, it would be 100% impossible as Susan Sauders/Jill Shapiro’s account shows items were added to her wish list during 2001 for her daughter Allyson. Way before anyone knew who Jill was. A screenshot of that is below -

Though the 2nd season of the New Jersey Housewives doesn’t premiere until May 3rd, Bravo has supplied certain media outlets with the season premiere episode and Teresa’s 9 year-old daughter, Gia Giudice, is seen making racist anti-Semitic comments.
According to HollywoodLife, Gia, 9, is seen saying she’d never marry a Jewish guy and goes on to make a gesture mocking Hasidic Jews’ long, curly hair when referring to Jewish people. When Teresa was asked about her daughter’s comments during an April 20th interview, she snapped, “I can’t control what my daughter says. Kids say dumb things … what, am I going to be crucified for it?”
No, Teresa cannot control what her daughter says, but the bigger question is where did her daughter learn this language and behavior from? I think from her home and parents would be a good guess. This will likely spark a major controversy once the new season premieres.
Teresa then goes on to defend her husband, Joe Giudice, who was arrested for a DUI back in January. “He was two seconds from home and he closed his eyes for two seconds and yawned when he was turning the bend,” said Teresa. “It’s pretty sad you can’t have one drink … everybody does it. I know he was not drunk at all.”
