Jake Pavelka is speaking out on being chosen to be the new Bachelor. The official announcement was made on Tuesday’s episode of Dancing With The Stars.
Jake reveals to UsMagazine that he is “honored” to be given a second chance at love as the latest Bachelor. Jake was dumped on the last season of The Bachelorette by Jillian Harris. “It’s such a unique opportunity,” Jake, 31, revealed after the DWTS show taping in Los Angeles Tuesday. “I still cannot believe this is happening. How did I get here?”
When asked about the drama from last season including the accusation that Wes Hayden had a girlfriend back home, Jake reveals he hopes that’s something he will not have to deal with. “I hope that’s something we don’t deal with this season,” he said. “I’m going to give everybody a clean slate going in, and I think over time [contestants] will weed themselves out. I’m hopeful.”
So who is Jake’s dream girl? “I’m going to look deep into the heart for character,” he said. “The four most important things to me are similar qualities — someone who is romantic, passionate, compassionate and protective … and will laugh at my jokes!”
Kate Gosselin comes out victorious in a new court ruling. The Judge overseeing the Gosselin’s divorce case has now ordered Jon Gosselin to return $180,000 to the couple’s joint account.
The $180,000 is part of the the $230,000 Kate accused Jon of taking from their shared account, which was in violation of an arbitrator’s previous order.
“The remaining sum of $55,000, which Ms. Gosselin used for household bills and expenses relating to the children, will be subject to further determination by the arbitrator at a later date,” Kate’s lawyer, Mark Momjiansays in a statement on Tuesday.
“As difficult as this has been for me, I am pleased that the Court has ruled fairly on behalf of myself and my children. Now that this matter has been ruled on, I look forward to returning to private arbitration, as we have agreed to do, to resolve any remaining issues,” Kate adds.
Jon has until October 26 to pony up the cash or face potential contempt charges.
This is all the more interesting considering Jon had previouslylied denied taking out the $230,000 amount Kate accused him of taking.
Lisa gives her opinion of each of her fellow Atlanta housewives, during which she refers to Kim Zolciak as “Crazy with a capital C.”
When asked about her thoughts on Sheree Whitfield, Lisa uses the words “High maintenance, motivated, and not genuine,” to describe her. She goes to to refer to Kandi as being “cool, down to earth, and talented.”
When asked if Nene Leakes was genuine, Lisa says — “I guess to some people, yes.” Interesting answer from Lisa.
Lisa wraps up her interview by predicting the reunion show will be crazy. “This reunion is going to be crazy. I can’t wait to see the numbers. I want to know how many people,” says Lisa. “I know it’s going to supersede everyone’s expectations. I do.”
The two-part reunion is still set to air on October 29 and November 5.
Jon & Kate Gosselin made their widely anticipated appearance in a Pennsylvania courthouse this morning to battle over allegations that Jon withdrew $230,000 from the couple’s shared banking account.
Jon had also filed court papers of his own against Kate — claiming she withdrew over $60,000 from their joint account this year without permission … and that there’s over $1 million that hasn’t been properly accounted for.
According to TMZ, the judge failed to make a ruling today, instead ordering the estranged couple to settle up and work it out with the arbitrator. The judge declared he will go along with anything the arbitrator decides under one condition — it has to be in the best interests of the children.
The judge also said any monies taken improperly from the joint account should be returned, but he didn’t get specific. He also suggested Jon and Kate keep things “private” and “amicable” from here on out. Highly doubt that will be happening anytime soon.
Week 4 of Dancing With the Stars, brought us each of the 11 remaining couples performing one of four brand-new dances: the Bolero, the Charleston, the country two-step, and the Lambada.
Two couples tied for the highest score of the night. Melissa Joan Hart and her partner Mark Ballas received a high score of 28 for their fun Charleston dance. Myaand Dmitry Chaplin were the other dancing duo to score a 28 for their sultryLambada.
Kim Zolciak, who received a massive “engagement” rock from her married beau earlier this year, has said in previous weeks that she is no longer with Big Poppa. Even stating in a recent interview, that she has a new boyfriend. No word yet on whether or not this new boyfriend is married as well.
Lee has appeared on MTV Teen Cribs within the past year showing off his Atlanta mansion. The MTV episode featured his kids and wife, Kim Najjar aka Mrs. Big Poppa.
Perhaps the sale of his home might indicate a separation from his wife. One can only hope the constant and very public humiliation of having your husband shower his mistress with an engagement ring & expensive gifts on national television has been the last straw for Kim Najjar.
However, there is no official word on the couple’s marital status.
A few days after Kate Gosselin claimed estranged husbandJon Gosselin raided their joint account, Jon has filed court papers claiming Kate did the same.
Jon is claiming Kate withdrew over $60,000 from their joint account between July and September 2009. In addition, he also wants an explanation for over $1 million Kate withdrew from February 2008 to June 2009 which according to Jon, have not been properly accounted for.
Jon is also admitting he took money out of the couple Jon’s account in the court papers filed, he however does not reveal the amount he took. The papers released by his lawyer state, “husband admits that he has taken funds from the joint money market account, Husband avers that wife has removed funds from the account as well.”
According to TMZ, Kate sources close to Kate are adamant that her withdrawals were legal and note that Jon withdrew $230,000 without the necessary permission required by the arbitrator. Both sides will be in court on Tuesday.
