TMZ is reporting today that Lisa Hartwelland her husband, former Oakland Raiders linebacker Ed Hartwell, were booted from their multi-million dollar Georgia mansion last week — after the bank foreclosed on the place. The bank sold it shortly after.
Lisa’s rep does not deny the story. The rep claims the couple was in talks with the lender to restructure the loan because the home had lost value — but that failed. They originally bought the place for $2.9 mil back in 2007 but the bank only got $1.9 mil when they resold it this month.
The rep continues, “Ed and Lisa are fine. They have settled in their [new] home, that sits on 10 acres and they OWN it!”
The first one is being reported by ExtraTV. They claim the relationship between the duo is fake and only made for TV. According to Extra, Slade reportedly approached Gretchen with the idea of creating a showmance. They say his past relationships with other “Housewives” castmembers stirs up some questions about the veracity of his romance with Gretchen. OC fans might recall Slade was previously engaged to “Housewife” Joe De La Rose and then dated Lauri Waring.
The second rumor involves pregnancy. TheDirty website is reporting today that Gretchen might be pregnant with Slade’s baby. According to thedirty, this is based on some buzz around Orange County. The Dirty website has been pretty accurate on previous reportings about the OC Housewives, so this rumor might have some legs to it.
Jillian Harris has had a rather busy week between fending of rumors of her fiance cheating and publicly defending her relationship with The Bachelorette winner, Ed Swiderski.
The couple was rumored to have broken up this weekend, but the two put up a united front as they dined at LAVO this Friday in Las Vegas.
Jillian is now once again speaking out about her relationship. She toldOK magazine that a tabloid story, “claimed Ed and I broke up, when in fact we have not even come close… I really want out of the spotlight so bad. I hate it so much.”
Interesting how certain people hate the spotlight once they start to get negative press. Most fans are still shocked that Jillian has yet to dump Ed. Perhaps she has yet to read US Weekly’s latest issue which shows detailed time-lines of her fiance cheating on her.
Then again, anyone who watched The Bachelorette would know that Jillian is very stubborn. I’m starting to think she will marry Ed and have his babies just to prove the world wrong.
When asked about the fact that Jon has admitted to starting a relationship with 22 year old Hailey Glassman in May, well before the reality show couple’s June 22 divorce announcement, Kate said, “I was shocked.” She added: “It’s very hurtful. To be very honest the most hurtful part is when his decisions directly affect the children.”
Kate also denied a rumored affair with her bodyguard, Steve Neild, and attacked her brother who has criticized her publicly.
As for the reason she continues to wear her wedding ring, the Jon & Kate Plus 8 mom said she keeps the ring on to make the divorce transition easier for her children.
Kate said, “Sorry, I don’t want to upset them (the kids.) I don’t want to shock them.”
Several sources have reported that The Bachelorette couple Jillian Harris and Ed Swiderski broke up following all the controversy surrounding Ed’s cheating allegations. On the contrary, the “lovebirds” were spotted at Las Vegas’ LAVO Friday night having drinks and appetizers.
Speculation of their breakup came after the duo cancelled reservations at the same restaurant hours earlier. The truth behind the canceled reservation: “Ed was working late,” a source toldPEOPLE.
According to the source, both Jillian and Ed acted like any normal couple, holding hands as their entered LAVO. The couple enjoyed appetizers on the restaurant’s outdoor patio overlooking the Las Vegas Strip.
“They just want to take things day to day and work on their relationship between them,” the source said.

The Real Housewives of New Jersey star, Danielle Staub’slife has been filled with controversy following the show’s first season. On a much brighter note, her daughter Christine Staub recently signed a modeling contract with IMG Models – the same agency that represents super models including Gisele Bunchen, Heidi Klum, Kate Moss and Taylor Momsen.
Though the15-year-old high school sophomore is taking test photos, she is expected to hit the catwalk as early as September during the New York Fashion week, according to IMG.
“She came into our offices and we were blown away!” Ivan Bart, SVP and Managing Director of IMG Models Worldwide, tellsPEOPLE. “She has an amazing amount of potential as a model. If we had seen her on the street we would have signed her on the spot.”
“This is all very new to me,” Christine told The Daily . “I’ve never really done any modeling before, so I’m just learning while I have a chance and being guided by the best in the business. I’m also getting used to industry people looking at my face so closely!”
We certainly hope that her life is nothing like her mother’s past. From watching the show, she seems like a smart young lady.
TMZ has managed to do the impossible. They were able to get their hands on a rare photo of The Real Housewives of Atlanta’sKim Zolciak with her infamous and rumored to still be married “Big Poppa.“
According to TMZ, the photo was taken last November at the Hotel Atlantis in the Bahamas. Though TMZ fails to name the man in the photo, he definitely strikes a strong resemblance to Lee Najjar, who has been pretty much confirmed to be Big Poppa.
Kim has claimed Big Poppa was separated from his wife in the past. There has however been no official confirmation on whether or not Lee Najjar is really separated.
A photo of Lee Najjar with his wife, who is also ironically named Kim, below. You be the judge.
We have reached the 5th week of Big Brother 11, and things are starting to heat up. Jeff was revealed as being the coup d’ etat winner during Thursday’s live show. This means Jeff has the power to replace the HOH’s nominations during the next live show, right before voting. Plus I think I speak for most of the fans, when I say good riddance to Ronnie the rat being evicted.
