On Dancing With The Stars, the contestants faced double elimination, with the second elimination being the result of a dance-off. Melissa Joan Hart was the first celebrity to be eliminated while both Michael Irvin and Louie Vito had to duke it out in a dance-off.
At the end of the night, Louie was the second celebrity eliminated leaving Michael was save for yet another week. Taylor Swift and Tiempo Libre gave a great performance during the Tuesday night double elimination show. Two down and seven to go!
Kate answered what she described as “any and all reasonable questions.” Kate made it clear that filming the TLC reality show hasn’t harmed her kids, a claim her estranged husband, Jon Gosselin, 32, made to try to get the show canceled. “They’re not suffering from this,” she said. “The fact that they have these different experiences they need to handle is only going to help them in life.”
Kate also revealed she wants to stay in the spotlight even after her show goes off the air. “I’ve done enough years on TV that I feel like it’s a normal, comfortable, natural place to be,” she said. “I’d love to be in a movie at some point, I’d love to be the voice of a cartoon character in a movie for my kids. I think that would be fun.”
When asked if she wanted to get married again, she answered, “I struggle because I really don’t want to be married,” she said. “Can you blame me?” She admits that single motherhood is tough — “the aloneness is so alone.” But ten years from now? “Nobody’s going to buy into my mess. I’ll probably be alone, but that’s OK.”
She also made it clear that despite her public financial feud with Jon, the kids do have funds set aside for their future. “There is a healthy amount of money put away for the kids, and it is safe,” Kate confirmed. “It will not be touched other than for education. The money is there, come hell or highwater.”
In the interview, Kim talks about her relationship with newcomer Kandi Burruss, her personal growth on the show, upcoming live performance and the real reason NeNe Leakes denies choking her.
Below are excerpts from Kim’s new interview :
ESSENCE.COM: So tell me what is your assessment of this second season?
KIM ZOLCIAK: This season people got to see more of people’s true colors. You can only pretend to be who you are but for so long. My friendship with Kandi has been a great new relationship for me because I didn’t expect to become that close with her. Overall, my song and my wig line have also been two amazing things that have happened to me. Other than some footage that I didn’t like or a couple of things I wish I’d handled differently, this was a better year for me than last season when I was paralyzed with humiliation and fear.
ESSENCE.COM: NeNe says that you won’t be performing live on the reunion show and that she didn’t choke you. Is that true?
KIM: I do sing live. She’s so jealous it’s ridiculous. It really irritates me that she would lie about something so serious. She strangled me twice and that’s not something I joke around about because violence is a serious situation across the country. I have a 911 call and a police report. What proof does she have that she didn’t do it? I think she’s denying it because she has her book and is doing all this stuff with domestic violence and doesn’t want to make herself look bad, but she needs to just admit that she made a mistake and move on, but don’t lie about it. She strangled me when other New York and Orange County housewives told her I told them she was broke and all this other stuff. I’m thinking, We’re on the highest rated show and they are pissed off about it. Do you believe everything they tell you? I tried to get her to calm down and said people are watching us and she put her finger in my face; I told her to get your finger out my face; then she put her finger back in my face; I smacked it out of my face and then she strangled me again.
ESSENCE.COM: And what about your future and wig collection?
KIM: The name of it is KZ LOKZ, a combination of my first and last name. Well, I’m behind on everything, but ideally, we’d like to see the wigs available and in stores by January 2010. You know, I got a lot of support and people got to see my true colors. I can’t carry the negativity with me forever. I’m too old for that.
The question on a lot of people’s minds is whether or not the couples are still together. Well the finale was shot in June, and according to Hot Wings aka Kamille Leai, she and Chance are no longer an item. Doll confirms she and Real are no longer together as well.
Hot Wings posted the following messages on her Twitter, revealing that Chance never got in touch with her once the show finished filming. She reveals the same went for Doll. She says she did not find love on the show, and even jokes about a 3rd season. Her tweets are below –
first off, let me just say that i heard from chance ONE TIME since we shot the show back in June, and it was thru twitter….7 minutes agofrom web
neone surprised!!! lmao..so NO i really didnt “WIN” the show. i did NOT find love with chance, HELL i cant even find chance PERIOD!!!7 minutes agofrom web
much love and respect to chance but i never heard from him after the show, and neither did doll from real..so what are we suppose to do?!?!6 minutes agofrom web
it was a great experience, chance is still a great guy,at least he got what he wanted, and that was a show..cant wait for season 3..hehe3 minutes agofrom web
Doll has also confirmed she and Real are no longer together in a new interview with VH1.
So it’s officially not going to happen with Real?
Yeah, it’s officially not there. We don’t have a relationship established of that sort. I’m a beautiful, well-rounded girl. I’m looking for love and I’m sure any guy would love to be with me, so I’m not worried about the situation.
When did it become clear to you that things weren’t working out?
It became clear about a month after the show was over. I mean, are you kidding me? For a guy not to contact me for a whole month after we supposedly became close? You picked me out of the 10 or 15 other girls that were on the show for you. And I wasn’t pursued a month after that?
It’s quite funny because these two douches spent their entire time on the show whining about wanting to find love, and accusing all the women of being on the show for the wrong reasons, when in actuality, they had zero intentions of committing to any of the ladies. It’s safe to say we will be hearing an announcement about a 3rd season any day now.
The nine remaining contestants on Dancing with the Stars are prepared to face a tough week, as they will be hitting the ballroom floor with three new routines. The three routines will include their typical dance performance, a group dance competition, and a performance of the jitterbug or the waltz.
“It’s been such a tough week because of all the new dances,” model Joanna Krupatells PEOPLE. “It’s definitely nerve-wracking with everything that’s going on.”
“This is going to take a lot of stamina,” says Joanna. “[The mambo] is supposed to last for four minutes so keeping that energy up is one thing and then to be on the dance floor with eight other couples, that’s already stressful. Plus, I don’t want to get that tap!”
Unfortunately for the stars, two couples will be eliminated this week instead of just one. The couple with the lowest score, based on the judges’ scores and fan votes, will be automatically eliminated. The remaining two couples will then do a 40-second dance-off and judges Len Goodman, Carrie Ann Inaba and Bruno Tonioli will determine who else goes home.
“It’s all about who can maintain, who can endure, who can take on more than one dance at a time,” says Melissa Joan Hart, who will be performing the waltz with partner Mark Ballas. “It’ll be interesting, definitely a battle.”
It seems the money feud that has been brewing between Jon & Kate Gosselin is finally settled, for now at least.
Attorneys for Jon Gosselin and Kate confirmed Monday morning that Jon has complied with a court order to return money missing from the couple’s joint bank account, a total of $180,000.
So this dispute is finally over and we can breathe a sigh of relief right? Well not exactly, as Jon is now accusing Kate of refusing to account for how she spent $33,000 in cash withdrawals. Kate has always maintained she used her withdrawals to pay bills.
Unfortunately for Jon, the judge found Kate to be in compliance, after her attorney provided receipts for nearly $60,000 that Jon claimed she had taken during the same time frame. As for the remaining $33,000 Jon said was unaccounted for, Kate’s lawyer said the court didn’t require such an accounting.
Jon showed up in court for Monday’s hearing; Kate, who has a book signing appearance in Long Beach, California Monday afternoon, did not attend the hearing. Her attorney was there on her behalf.
In other news, Jon is once again without a lawyer, as his Pennsylvania counsel, Charlie Meyer resigned as Jon’s attorney as of Monday. “I’ll just get another attorney,” Jon told PEOPLE. “I have to.”
The season finale of My Antonio aired last night with Brooke Barlow coming up victorious. The 30 year old nurse from Mississippi won the heart of Antonio Sabato Jr.
In a new interview with VH1, Brooke opens up about the current state of her relationship with Antonio. According to Brooke, she hasn’t spoken to Antonio in 2 – 3 months, and they are no longer together. She opens up about her thoughts on Yvonne, and why she wanted Antonio to sign that contract.
Excerpts from her interview below -
Well, thank you. That’s really, really nice to hear. No one’s been able to tell me that yet.
Where is your relationship with Antonio at this moment?
I’m just going to be honest with you: I am not in touch with Antonio. We haven’t spoken in probably two, three months.
The show was shot when?
In January. We couldn’t really court, because we weren’t allowed to be seen in public, so it’s very difficult to try to have a relationship behind closed doors. We had just met and we tried to pull it off. We saw each other for probably a couple of months after the show was filmed, and then we just decided it was best to see other people, and I haven’t heard from him since.
You did give it a try though?
Oh yeah. We put effort into it. I met his children. We would go hiking on the weekends in his back yard in the woods. We saw each other on the weekends, being very careful not to let anyone else see us. If he had any sort of job interview in L.A., he would stop by and visit me in my home. He’s adorable. We had a great time — as good of a time as you could have indoors with no outside contact. It was really nice getting to know him and his children.
UPDATE: Just when you thought Kim Zolciak couldn’t get any trashier, she proves us wrong. Kim pulled a Britney Spears and flashed the paparazzi while getting out of her car in LA. You can view the NSFW (Not Safe For Work) image here.
Most people are probably confused of KimandNeNe Leakes’s friendship. They seem to break up and make up. NeNe swore up and down that she was done with Kim following the alleged choking incident in which Kim accused NeNe of choking her. Now both Kim and NeNe are reunited again! We smell trouble already.
It seems like the days of wig pulling and choking may be over for Kim and NeNe who were spotted smiling and embracing at Mr. Chow after dinner in Beverly Hills.
