Kendra delivered her baby boy, Hank Baskett IV who weighed 9 lbs 5 oz, via C-section early Friday morning in Indianapolis, where her husband plays for the Indianapolis Colts. A source tells UsWeekly, “Mother and baby are doing well. Kendra and Hank are very happy.”
Kendra, 24, rose to fame as part of one of Hugh Hefner’s girlfriends on The Girls Next Door reality show. She later appeared on her own solo reality show on the E! network titled Kendra. She announced her pregnancy just weeks before she wed Hank, 27, in a June 27 ceremony at the Playboy mansion in Los Angeles.
The above preview shows Tamra and Gretchen doing lunch, as the two attempt to put the past behind them. Tamra once again brings up Gretchen’s alleged boyfriend, Jay Photoglou. The Jay drama began when Jay called Tamra during filming last year, and told Tamra that Gretchen was cheating on her then fiance Jeff Beitzel, with him. When most 40 year old mothers receive random phone calls from random men in the middle of the night, they tend to ignore it, block their numbers, or tell him to never call them anymore, but no, not our Tamra. How could she pass up an opportunity to get some damaging info against Gretchen, who she seemed to be rather jealous of for no reason at all. Tamra of course entertained Jay and even struck up somewhat of a friendship with him.
The drama continued as Jay continued to call and email Tamra. The led to Tamra accusing Gretchen of two timing Jeff during the Reunion show, as well as some name calling between the two ladies in the media. Jay in the meantime continued to leak numerous scandalous photos of Gretchen, including the now infamous vibrator photos.
Some of the leaked photos include Gretchen kissing Jay while wearing her engagement ring from Jeff. Gretchen interestingly has never really explained these photos, and maintains she never cheated on Jeff.
In the mean time, the feud between Tamra and Gretchen has even gotten nastier based on a recent interview they both gave In Touch magazine. You can read that story here.

In a new interview with Extra, the cocktail waitress expresses remorse for her actions. “I couldn’t describe how remorseful that I am to have hurt her family and her emotionally… [but] if it wasn’t me, it was going to be other girls. I did care about him. I didn’t do it for superficial reasons. I didn’t do it to purposely hurt her”, Jaimee told the show.
Jaimee says she hopes to be friends with Tiger someday, and insists she did not know Tiger was married until they were “already in a relationship.” Jaimee says, “I wouldn’t have pursued him if he didn’t pursue me. I mean, when he did, I just figured he was single and I didn’t think to ask.”
Jaimee claims Tiger never mentioned his wife during their affair. She also says she is devastated that Tiger had other mistresses other than her. “Seeing that [he allegedly had other women] was devastating. It hurts,” Jaimee says. “I’ve learned from everything that I did. Had I not acted on emotion, I probably would have taken a second to think of how it was going to affect my family and the impact it was going to have not on my life, but on everybody that’s been involved in this.”
Not sure I’m buying the whole I didn’t know he was married explanation, but whatever helps Jaimee sleep at night. And the nerve of her being “devastated” that he had other whores mistresses is quite laughable.
In other news, the count of Tiger’s women is now up to 13. That number also includes 2 porn stars. Tiger reportedly had a lengthy affair with porn star Joslyn James (real name: Veronica Siwik-Daniels) during visits to Las Vegas.
There are also reports that Tiger might have fallen in love with his #1 mistress, Rachel Uchitel. In Touch Weekly was able to get their hands on some emails sent to Rachel from Tiger. The emails have Tiger declaring that he has fallen for Rachel and even says, “I finally found someone I connect with, someone I have never found like this. Not even at home.” You can read those emails here.
As for Tiger’s wife, Elin, there are reports that she has purchased a home in her country Sweden for $2.2 million. She reportedly purchased the home days after the car crash. People magazine also reports Elin was truly unaware of Tiger’s cheating, and is now trying to see whether or not their marriage can be salvaged. Elin has also moved out of the couple’s Florida home.
MTV is once again stirring up controversy with the debut of their new show – Jersey Shore. The show, which follows a group of 20 something year old Italians as they live and work on the Garden State’s shoreline, has been criticized by some Italian American groups as being offensive and reinforcing stereotypes of Italian-Americans.
UNICONational — the “Largest Italian American Service Organization in the USA” — claims they “can’t keep up with the volume of calls” from “outraged” Italian Americans. They added that it should be pulled from the air. The backlash doesn’t end there, as advertisers – Domino’s and American Family Insurance have requested that their ads be pulled from the show.
MTVhowever continues to stand by the show. “We understand that this show is not intended for every audience and depicts just one aspect of youth culture,” MTV’s spokesman told Fox News on Tuesday. “Our intention was never to stereotype, discriminate or offend.”
The cast of Jersey Shore can be seen continuously referring to themselves as “Guidos” and “Guidettes” on the show. Both terms have long been found to be offensive to Italians.
One of the cast members, Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino, however defends the use of the term ‘Guido.’ “The older generation doesn’t understand. These days in New York and New Jersey a ‘guido’ is a good-looking Italian male that likes to have fun and a ‘guidette’ is a good-looking Italian girl,” Mike tells EW.com.
I actually saw the premier episode of this show and was a bit surprised to see the term “Guido,” be used so frequently by the cast. Always assumed the term was offensive. Other than that, the show pretty much fell in line with all the other MTV reality shows, such as the Real World. It was pretty much the same formula – follow a group of 20 something year olds as they get drunk, and make complete asses of themselves on national television. It’s likely the show is here to stay as it premiered to rather good ratings, the premier episode was seem by a total of 1.4 million viewers.

Kate Gosselin has remained silent since her hit TLC show – Jon & Kate Plus 8ended it’s 2 year run weeks ago. The mother of eight is now breaking her silence in a new interview with Barbara Waters.
According to Kate, the kids aren’t doing so well without the cameras around. “They cried in the van on the way home from school the other day. I finally admitted to them, they kept asking, ‘Where’s the camera crew? Where’s the camera crew? We miss them.’ And I said, ‘Our show is over.’ …Eight sobbing kids driving home from school,” Kate, 34, says on Barbara Walters’ The 10 Most Fascinating People of 2009, scheduled to air Wednesday on ABC.
TLC had planned to continue filming the show without Kate’s estranged husband, Jon Gosselin, back in September. A day after TLC made their announcement, Jon coincidentally revealed he had an “epiphany” and claimed the show was exploiting his children. He refused to allow TLC to continue filming them.
Kate however strongly disagrees with Jon, and tells Barbara that Jon ended the show “because he could.” “Unless you live in my house and, and see how everything that we have done with the show has been such a great experience, you can’t speak,” says Kate.
Kate also reveals she will be back on TV, as she is slated to do a new talk show next spring.
