Exactly 3 months after announcing her pregnancy to the media in April, Angelina, 24, is now blaming the same media for causing her to have a miscarriage.
She appeared on the syndicated Father Albert Show (seriously, has anyone heard of this show?) yesterday during which she opened up.
“Everyone in the tabloids and media weren’t really leaving me alone about it,” said Angelina. “Basically I wanted it to be my personal business, and it really wasn’t. It was really hard, and I went through a lot of stress, and I ended up losing the baby.” I don’t exactly recall a big media blitz over her pregnancy but okay.
Angelina also puts some blame on her baby’s father who is presumed to be her former fiance Dave Kovacs. “He wasn’t even there for me… he was tormenting me,” Angelina recalled. “And it was definitely a big reason why I think what happened to me, happened to me. It was definitely a reality check.” Dave came out back then stating he wasn’t sure the baby was his.
Angelina’s appearance on Father Albert will air Thursday, August 4 on FOX. Oddly enough, that is the same day the 4th season of the Jersey Shore will premiere on MTV.
In a new interview with the Miami Herald, Alexis, who experienced some financial difficulties on the show and is well aware of the “Jesus Barbie’’ nickname given to her by fans because of her strong faith, reveals that being on the show can be very stressful.
“It’s definitely stressful being on [ Housewives],’’ admits Alexis, 34. “You go through your life in front of the entire nation. If you have one bad episode, everyone’s mad at you.’’
Alexis acknowledges she receives a lot of that criticism from the web. “There is a lot of bad blogging out there,’’ she says, adding: “Every person who comes up to me in public is very positive and super kind.” Alexis adds that she has learned to stay away from the negativity. “My rule is: I stay off the Internet, I don’t Google myself. I don’t read what other people have to say about me.’’
She however adds that being on the show has made her tougher. “I used to be sick to my stomach all night long, just devastated,’’ she says. “But now I have a tougher skin. It takes a lot to upset me now. My family is happy, and that’s all that matters.’’
Alexis also reveals she continues to focus on her Alexis Couture clothing line. In the meantime, she is uncertain about a return to the RHOC for a 7th season as Bravo has yet to make any official announcements. Filming on the new season will however start soon as it typically starts towards the end of summer so we will find out any day now who will be returning and who will not. My guess is Alexis will likely get the axe unless her husband Jim Bellino changes his mind about filming. Jim decided early on during the filming of the 6th season that he no longer wanted to appear on the show.
And finally, Alexis posted some new photos on her personal facebook page including a bikini photo from the 4th of July weekend, another photo of herself sporting a barely there bikini from this past weekend in Miami plus a pic of her and Jim at the Del Mar Races. All those photos are below!

Teen Mom star Maci Bookout is starting to have second thoughts about doing the popular MTV show according to a new interview with Life & Style magazine.
The reason? Maci, 19, worries about how the show is affecting her 2-year-old son Bentley Edwards. “I don’t want to steal his childhood,” says Maci who is worried about Bentley growing up under a harsh media microscope. “I don’t know if being on TV in elementary school would be difficult for him. I want him to have a normal life.”
Maci, who reportedly earns $60,000 per season, however adds that choosing to walk away from the fame show would be a very difficult decision because it has allowed her to provide for her son. “Without the show, I would have had to have a full-time job and be in school full-time, and I’d rarely get to spend time with Bentley,” Maci says. “It’s been difficult, but it’s also been a big blessing.”
As for the moment, Maci assures us Bentley’s not being affected by the show in any negative way. “He actually enjoys it,” she confesses. “Bentley thinks it’s cool to watch himself on TV and to have cameras around.”
In other Teen Mom news, Catelynn Lowell, you know, the one that sort of has it together and therefore no one really talks about her, is making recent headlines. The reason? It all has to do with an eviction.
According to TMZ Catelynn and her boyfriend Tyler Baltierra, who were shown moving into their 1st apartment together on the MTV show, were evicted from the same apartment for failing to pay rent! The 19-year-olds signed a lease on the apartment in Marine City, Michigan, in August, 2010 with court documents showing they stopped paying rent in December, 2010.
This caused their landlord to give them an eviction notice while also taking them to court. The landlord ending up winning big as the two had to give up their $450.00 security deposit, in addition to paying an additional $450 in back rent and moving out of the building.
The two of course did what any other 19-year-olds would do by taking to their twitter pages to give their side. “The landlord was an idiot and didn’t fix anything I payed [sic] every month that I lived there,” Catelynn tweeted. Tyler added, “Ok everyone I did not get evicted, I left bcuz the landlord was a lazy unprofessional man of business, and I refuse to put with it FYI.” Guess we’ll have to wait and see if the eviction drama makes the show.
A new episode of Teen Mom airs tonight on MTV at 10/9c.

After years of struggling to have a baby, Giuliana Rancic and hubby BillRancicare now revealing they are looking into other options.
“We’re looking at all of our options when it comes to children, whether it’s surrogacy or adoption,” Bill, 40, said to UsWeekly. “We’re going to keep trying ourselves, but if it doesn’t work out, there are so many other great alternatives. We’re open to everything,” added Giuliana, 35.
In fact during an appearance on the Chelsea Lately show last week, Giuliana and Bill revealed they were looking into adopting an “underprivileged kid” from Giuliana’s hometown of Naples, Italy.
The couple has suffered heartbreak in their struggle to become parents as Giuliana opened up last year about her miscarriage. The Giuliana & Billstars, who wed in September 2007, however promise the new season of their reality show will focus less on their quest to start a family.
“We went through a really tough year trying to have a baby. We decided, you know what? We need some time off,” explained Giuliana — who once received 63 IVF shots a month. “Bill decided to have the year of fun and just focus on the positive.”
The 4th season of Giuliana & Bill airs Monday nights at 8 p.m. (EST) on the Style Network!

Let the drama begin! The first part of the Real Housewives of New York City reunion airs tonight and judging from the previews, it’s an all out war between the ladies!
Following a season which was pretty much the Blondes vs. Brunettes, not much as changed between the castmates since filming ended months ago.
In the preview clip below, Ramona Singer and Countess LuAnn de Lesseps go at it over their verbal smack-down during a recent episode. Similar to the delusional and cra cra Kelly Bensimon, the Countess actually believes she is a nice person. Once again Andy Cohen is the voice of reason when he kindly lets her know she ain’t that nice.
The topic of Lulu’s marriage is brought up and shots are fired when Ramona accuses the Countess of having had an open marriage with her ex Count Alex de Lesseps! That would explain all the reports that have the Countess getting wasted in public and trying to make out with random strangers… in front of her then husband.
The reunion is super-sized tonight with the first part being 1 hour and 30 minutes long. It airs at 10/9c and immediately following that is a new episode of WWHL. The preview clip is below!
Meanwhile, Jill Zarin’sdaughter Ally Shapiro was featured on a recent episode of the RHONY during which it was revealed she was transferring away from Sarah Lawrence College.
According to a new report by Crushable, Ally’s classmates at SLC are revealing why she might have wanted to leave the school while also painting a not so flattering picture of her. “She was standoffish,” one student told Crushable. “She thought she was famous, and nobody cared.”
A second student alleges that Ally was hospitalized earlier this year for alcohol poisoning and had to have her stomach pumped. Wowzers. “They tried to cover it up,” the student said, “but we all knew it was her.” The RHONY was filming then but of course this wasn’t made a part of the show a la the shocking video of LuAnn’s daughter Victoria that also hit the net during filming. A recent picture of Ally and Jill taken in June is below.

In today’s news, Bethenny Frankelcontinues to get richer expand her Skinnygirl line!
Just months after selling her Skinnygirl drink line for a reported $100 million, the Bethenny Ever After star has now announced her plans to launch a Skinnygirl skincare line… in addition to the Skinnygirl Cleanses, Skinnygirl Shapewear and Skinnygirl Books.
Bethenny, 40, announced the launch of Skinnygirl Face & Body Solutions and Skinnygirl Mommy on Friday. She joins forces with the beauty firm Lotta Luv for a 30-product body and skincare line called Honesty by Bethenny.
The reason for the name? Well it’s because Bethenny is not one for the gimmicks! “A $150 eye cream is ridiculous and absurd,” she toldWWD. “[Promises like] ‘you’re going to look like Heidi Klum in two days’ or ‘like you had a face-lift’ have always bothered me.”
The products will range from lip glosses to body cream! The Honesty by Bethenny line is set to debut in select Wal-Mart stores in November 2011 and will retail for $15 and under. Not bad. Some of the products will reportedly feature spirit-inspired scents.
And in a recent interview with CNN, Bethenny makes it clear she isn’t just putting out these product lines to make money. “Any product that I add to the Skinnygirl line has to be innovative, solve a problem for women, and help them to live healthier, better lives,” she said. “My line is straightforward, honest, and doesn’t make false promises. I’ve turned down a multitude of product ideas from headbands to diet pills.”
She adds, “If I wouldn’t use a product myself, it doesn’t become part of the Skinnygirl brand.”
In other Bethenny news, she also continues to make it crystal clear that her reality TV days are numbered! “I’m getting tired of reality TV, of every moment being documented,” said Bethenny who has a talk show in the works. “But a talk show, where I could have longer conversations than on Facebook or Twitter – would be great. There are many things I want to talk to women about. While the other housewives were off getting drunk, I was doing business.”

Ashley, who has been heavily criticized for being too insecure as well as for her decision to keep douchebag Bentley Williams on the show much longer than she should have, made the surprising revelation in a recent interview.
“I don’t know that I have made a good Bachelorette,” Ashley confesses to the Philadelphia Inquirer. “In a way, I think I’m too honest. If I’m not into somebody, I have a hard time faking it and I think in this environment, you have to be able to do that sometimes.” Yeah that’s the reason.
As for the whole Bentley debacle, Ashley admits she was a bit jaded after having her heart broken. “Now I feel like I’m jaded,” she admits. “I think I’ve learned a lot about people, but it’s kind of a sad thing.”
Ashley also goes on to deny that she is insecure! Err is she watching the same show we’re watching? “Despite what people believe, I’m actually pretty secure in myself,” she explains. “There’s a lot of good things happening too. You don’t see much of that. You only see what sucks people in.”
Meanwhile, with Ashley’s sucky season of the Bachelorette winding down, there is now a ton of speculation on who will be the next Bachelor! The front-runner? None other than Ryan Park who will be making a “shocking” return to the show tonight to try to win back Ashley.
Bachelor insider Reality Steve however tells Life & Style magazine that Ryan’s return is really to position himself to become the next Bachelor a la Jake Pavelka.
“Ryan goes back to Fiji to try to win Ashley back [during the July 25 episode],” said RS. “Producers probably told him that by going back, he would have a good chance to be the next Bachelor.”
Three guys remain on the show with a new episode airing tonight on ABC at 8/7c. Ashley will narrow down the contestants to the final two!
