The new season of the Bachelorette has wrapped up and is set to premiere next Monday.
However, as we have all become accustomed to with the previous seasons, its almost impossible for these shows to do without the revelation of scandal or drama. As we previously reported, Ali Fedotowsky is no exception to this.
It has come out that one of her bachelors, Canadian wrestler Justin Rego, actually had a girlfriend while on the show.
Host Chris Harrisontells ET, “Ali’s time as The Bachelorette was tumultuous to say the least… It was a tough run for her. The more I got to know her… everybody brings their baggage, whether it is Jake Pavelka or Andrew Firestone… you bring your life and your history. Part of Ali’s is that she is insecure, and her fear was that she wasn’t going to be loved back.”
Chris continues, “Everyone brings their own baggage to the show. Ali [is] a girl that has in the past been hurt before.” Chris also adds that despite appearing confident and independent, Ali is very vulnerable.
“She really had this fear of almost being rejected. Like, ‘Yes, I’m going to fall in love, but I’m really worried that I’m not going to get love back.’…Everyone has their kind of bones in the closet that they have to deal with. Hers was ‘I’m going to put myself out there. I really think I’m going to fall in love, but are these guys going to love me back?'”
Ali’s season premieres Monday May 24 at 9|8c on ABC.
Must say after three weeks of watching the new season of the Real Housewives of New Jersey, I am simply not impressed. Compared to the Real Housewives of NYC, the show seems to be falling flat and the Danielle drama is getting very old. Will touch more on this later.
But on to the recap of last night’s episode. First we get a quick rehash of Jacqueline’s argument with her teenage daughter Ashley Holmes, who is now living on her own. Jacqueline is in a tough spot with parenting Ashley because Ashley is now an “adult” and no longer living under her roof. I can’t help but feel that had Jacqueline done a better job with parenting Ashley earlier on, things would be better between them now. Jacqueline herself has admitted to making parenting errors with Ashley. This also brings up a point that I feel strongly about which is that just because a kid turns 18, doesn’t really make them an adult and ready to be on their own. A girl like Ashley should still be living at home in my opinion. I’m guessing Jacqueline might be helping her financially in some shape or form. Perhaps cutting her off financially until she stops being rude would help her straighten up.
Moving on to Danielle who receives flowers from Jacqueline congratulating her daughter Christine on her modeling debut. You can see some modeling shots of Christine below. Jacqueline has stated in an earlier episode that her husband does not want her befriending Danielle, but for some reason Danielle is persistent on becoming BFFs with Jacqueline again and even decides to leave her a scolding message, accusing her of not being her own woman.
One thing I really want to touch on is Danielle’s parenting skills and why she insists on involving her innocent children in her drama and in adult issues. This started in the premiere episode when she took her kids along a car ride to stalk Caroline’s event. Her kids looked and acted embarrassed. And then last night, her youngest daughter, who once again looked mortified, asked to be excused as Danielle decided to call Jacqueline. And once again, Danielle decided to unload her adult drama onto her young daughter. Does this woman not have any friends? Involving her children in her drama is simply wrong and unnecessary. Poor kids. I’m really curious to know more about the man who decided to marry Danielle and make her the mother of his children. Danielle’s ex-husband’s name is Thomas Staub or Gerald Staub. If anyone knows anything about him or has a photo, please feel fee to email us at Realitytea@yahoo.com.
And how amazing was it last week when Christine Staub was photographed by Gilles Bensimon, the ex-husband of Kelly Bensimon of the NYC Housewives? I found that interesting for some reason considering Gilles has never made an appearance on the NYC Housewives. By the way the photos of Christine from the Daily Front Row magazine can be seen below.
Something else that robbed me the wrong way was a joke or non-joke Danielle made during an earlier episode about Christine being able to help her financially with her modeling career. Just wrong, wrong, and more wrong. Putting that kind of pressure on a 15 year-old girl is wrong and disgusting. There’s a good chance that Christine, despite being very gorgeous,, might not make it in the modeling world, so why even say that kind of thing? It’s become rather obvious that Danielle sees her daughters as meal tickets as she is also pushing her 12 year-old to get into the music industry, even calling her the next Miley Cyrus. Plus is it just me or does Danielle seem to be living vicariously through Christine’s new found career?
It put up or shut up time on Dancing With The Stars with the semifinals airing last night. And while all the dancing couples excelled, two dominated and tied for a score of 59.
Professional Celebrity dancers Nicole Scherzingerand Evan Lysacek are still the lead favorites after their flawless performances from last night. Nicole and partner Derek earned a 30 score for their “divine” Argentine tango, and a score of 29 for their cha-cha dance. “You’ve got to be there,” Len said, in reference to next week’s finale.
Evan and his partner Anna Trebunskaya also earned a 30 score for their paso doble and a 29 for their fox-trot. Len said he loved seeing Evan’s “happy-go-lucky, fun side.”
In third place was Erin Andrews and partner Maksim Chmerkovskiy. The still rumored to be dating couple scored a 27 for their fluent Viennese waltz dance, though Bruno mistakenly gave them a “premature paddle” score of 10 instead of the 9 he intended. A 29 score for their paso doble dance gave them a total of 56 points. In last place was NFL player Chad Ochocinco with a score of 52. Overall all the couples performed well.
In other DWTS news, pro dancer Derek Hough celebrated his 25th birthday last night at the H Lounge club in Los Angeles. In attendance were all of his DWTS cast as well as former Bachelor star Jake Pavelka and his fiance Vienna Girardi.
The Atlanta housewife attended a Dancing Stars of Atlanta Benefit event Sunday night along with her fellow castmates and the photos tell it all. While Nene has yet to publicly comment on her plastic surgery, she looks noticeably different in the face. There are also rumblings that she had more than her nose done. You can see more photos of Nene below.
Nene who was in attendance with her husband Gregg despite separation rumors, was actually at the event to support her fellow housewife Sheree Whitfield, who danced at the charity event which raised thousands of dollars for the Alzheimer’s Association.
Also in attendance were Kandi Burruss, Kim Zolciak’s wig, and new housewife Cynthia Bailey. Photos below are courtesy of FreddyO.
This season’s SurvivorHeroes vs Villains is being hailed by many as being one of the best ever. The ratings also proved to be great, as they were up from last May with over 13 million viewers tuning in.
There is however some controversy over Sandra Diaz-Twine being crowned the winner. Some feel Parvati Shallow deserved to win, while others feel fan favorite Russell Hantz should have won. One person who agrees with the later is none other than Russell himself. In a new interview with ET, Russell, 37, feels he won in his head and also believes he played a good social game despite what his Survivor peers believe.
Excerpts from Russell’s interview below -
ET: Do you feel robbed? This is the second time you made it to the end and didn’t win?
Russell Hantz: When I win the Player of the Game, the MVP of the game, then my argument is legitimate. I am not just saying it. I am not being cocky. It is fact. The fans think I played the best twice. They voted me the fan favorite. I won twice. It is amazing that people get so bitter and can’t vote the way they are supposed to vote. All these weak people who play this game.
ET: All season the voted off survivors told me that they didn’t think you had a good social game. You didn’t receive a single vote last night. Do you think that is why?
Russell Hantz: They are saying I have a strategic game, but not a social game? Look what I did at Tribal Council. People say that, but they get their feelings hurt so much because my social game is so good. Look how I switched the vote at Tribal Council. It was supposed to be Rupert, and Danielle went home. I looked at Jerri and said, “Danielle.” If that doesn’t say right there that my social game was brilliant… How can you get somebody to switch their vote just by looking at them and saying the other girl’s name?
Russell Hantz: She trusted me. She believed me. That is why. She believed me the entire time. They could have ganged up on me. I was one person out there. If I was that weak and they couldn’t take me out, it makes me look even better. If I am that good at intimidation, I am even better.
ET: Was it harder playing this the second time with survivors who had played before?
Russell Hantz: It was really hard. The first time was a piece of cake. It was laughable. The second season was tough. There were really tough players out there. Parvati was really good. Boston Rob, Cirie, Candice and Amanda are all really good players.
ET: Do you think you were at an advantage because they didn’t see your game?
Russell Hantz: I think it was equally the same. Everybody thinks I have a huge advantage, but they were all friends. They all went to events together and know each other. I am sure they were calling each other on the phone before it all started. I didn’t have that advantage. Also, my disadvantage was that I had just played 39 days of a very strategic game. Also, I was physically whipped because I had just played 39 days in a very physical game. You can definitely say I was at an advantage because they didn’t see me play, but you also say, I had a disadvantage because they had advantages on their side, too.
Tonight marks the all new 3rd episode of the second season of the Real Housewives of New Jersey. In case you’re wondering, the above picture is from last year.
The drama rages on when Danielle accuses Jacqueline of not being her own woman and standing up to her family. Meanwhile, a very pregnant Teresa and a determined Danielle are ecstatic to see their daughters modeling in New York Fashion Week. But Danielle’s daughter Christine is not 100 percent prepared to walk down the runway.
You will have to tune in to see if a mishap unfolds and costs both Christine and Danielle a future in fashion. We will also be seeing Teresa’s husband, Joe, being mean to their then 8-year-old daughter Gia.

Apparently the nutty Real Housewives of New York City star is tired of the negative comments by the haters. “I will be deleting this page by the end of the week,” Kelly wrote on her personal facebook account last night. “So for those who wish to stay a fan please go to my fanpage .And for those who choose not to…all the best. Please don’t follow me on Twitter and Facebook, it’s not good for you to waste time, with people you dislike…and end up getting blocked or deleted from my web team.”
Well that was then and this now, as it seems Kelly’s other personality had a change of heart. She posted early this morning that she would be keeping her facebook page after all.
“We will NOT be deleting this account, but will be adding a new page in addition to the fan page. write what you want, and say what you feel. I am flattered by lovers and haters, but indifference makes me sad. enjoy the day.”
