E! News was able to catch up with Rachel, who revealed her tips for getting her pre baby body back! “I’m eating a ton and nursing my child. I have not exercised, I can tell you that much,” dished Rachel. “This is my first time out since he was born. Life is amazing, it’s perfect. It’s complete, I’m in love and I can’t see straight.”
The new mommy then opened up about her baby boy. “He’s home sleeping. I have to go home and feed him right now,” said Rachel, adding that she picked her son’s name because, “It was just one of my favorite names, always. It made a lot of sense because the ‘S’ in his name was for my great aunt and the ‘M’ in his middle name is for my grandfather and my husband’s mother.”
So can we expect to see Rachel in her delivery room on the upcoming season of her Bravo show a la Kourtney Kardashian? “I don’t know, you’ll have to watch and see what happens,” teased Rachel. And that we will as Bravo has yet to announce the premiere date for the upcoming season of the Rachel Zoe Project.
On the fifth episode this season titled ‘Following Pecking Orders,’ Jill Zarin returns from Australia a new woman—or so she says. Her newfound sense of purpose to avoid gossip quickly ends when she dishes about Ramona during lunch with Kelly, LuAnn and Sonja. Kelly is ready to face Ramona about her recent behavior, but the other ladies don’t know if she is quite ready. In addition, Sonja details the group’s “pecking order” dynamic; Cindy and Ramona meet for drinks, but tension spills over Jill. A preview clip is below.

In other NYC news, Alex McCord discusses her newly found voice and attitude in a new interview with TV Guide. Excerpts are below –
TV Guide Magazine: Gotta say, you are sassy this season! Alex: [Laughs] I’ve always been empowered. It’s just that now you’re seeing it on TV.
TV Guide Magazine: Do you think your friendship with former Housewife Bethenny Frankel changed you? Alex: My metamorphosis, if you want to call it that, had nothing to do with anything other than my being fed up. In the real world, it might be enough to think someone’s an idiot. But on reality TV, you sort of have to beat them over the head with it. Otherwise, they don’t know.
TV Guide Magazine: Has it gotten old, always being filmed? Alex: The more I do this, the more fun it’s becoming. One thing that I think makes New York special is that we still have four original cast members left. What that means is whether we like each other or not, we have a shared history of four years. We know where each other’s buttons are and how to push them. That makes for magical TV. All you have to do is get us in a room and turn the cameras on.
Meanwhile, Alex and her hubby Simon van Kempen are selling t-shirts with the now infamous “Thug In A Cocktail Dress” catchphrase scribbled on them, similar to the one Alex is wearing in the above photo. They are donating 50% of all proceeds to the Housing Works charity. The t-shirts and other apparel items plus jewelry are available at Thuginacocktaildress.com.

Has Bristol Palin gotten some recent work done on her face? You betcha!
The photo on the right is of Bristol, 20, looking very unrecognizable at the White House Correspondents’ Dinner Cocktail Party event on April, 29. And folks, that picture on the right is unretouched. In fact, Bristol attended another event Tuesday night on May 3, sporting the same surprised new look.
Many media outlets are speculating the single mom and daughter of Sarah Palin might have gotten some plastic surgery pointing out her angular jawline and more pronounced cheekbones.
New Jersey board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Brian Glatt tells Reality Tea, “Bristol appears to have lost a significant amount of weight, which is responsible for some of the differences in her look. In addition, she seems to have had some liposuction of her neck area under her chin which has produced a much more defined jawline and lower facial area.”
Dr. Glatt adds, “She may have also had a chin implant to better define this area. Her lower lip appears much more full and it is likely she had injections of Juvederm into her lower lip.”
In the meantime, we’ll let you be the judge with more before and after photos of Bristol below!

The Jersey Shorecast continues their attempt to destroy the world at world domination.
After MTV confirmed spin-off shows for Snooki, JWoww and DJ Pauly Dlast month, the next in line was of course The Snitchuation! TMZ is reportingMike Sorrentino has signed a “series development deal” with MTV for an unnamed project aka a spin-off show!
“I’m excited to continue my relationship with MTV … Hopefully, there will be plenty more situations in the future,” said The Situation via a statement.
And ready or not Italy, here they come! The Jersey Shore gang posted their farewell messages on their twitter pages yesterday as they finally departed for Italy to begin filming their 4th season.
“nd im off..ciao twitterworld im going to miss you all! thanks for all ur love and support! keep posted for ne updates! Italia here i come!xo,” tweeted Sammi.
“Off to italy! Be back on twitter soon! Love u all n thank u for all the support xoxo,” tweeted JWoww.
“Keep The #DJPaulyDSwagg Movement Alive !!! I’m Out Ooooh Yeahhhhhh !!!!! Love You All !!!!! Ciao’ Tweeps !!!” tweeted DJPauly D.
A new TMZ report today reveals that filming is slated to begin on Monday, May 9. In fact, the cast will reportedly be residing in a building used for housing students at an Italian University.
TMZ adds that the Istituto Lorenzo de’ Medici fired off a letter to students advising them not to join forces with the Jersey Shore cast. “We advise you to NOT sign any paper, let anyone in, and keep us informed,” the letter stated. Perhaps not renting the student housing building to MTV might have been a better solution. Just saying.
According to the rumor mills, the 4th season of the Jersey Shore might begin airing in August.

Fabulicious, released yesterday, promises “60 more flavorful family recipes straight from Salerno–with an emphasis on preparing, serving, and eating meals with the ones you love” as Teresa shares her simple, inexpensive, and “fabulicious” dishes. Okay, all seems pretty harmless except Teresa manages to take a dig at her sister-in-law and costar Melissa Gorga in her cooking book. Yes folks, you read that right.
Below is an excerpt from the book in which Teresa talks about her family –
“I see my brother, Joe Gorga, his wife Melissa, my niece Antonia, and my nephews Gino and Joey several times a week. Same with all of Joe’s sisters and brothers, and their families, my cousins, my aunts, and my mother and father-in-law… and no, we don’t always get along. Do I sometimes wish my cousin would stop with the lame jokes? Yes. Do I wish my baby sister-in-law didn’t copy everything I do down to the shoes I wear and the chairs on my front porch? Of course! But you know what they say: “You can’t pick your family.”
Yes folks, that is a direct quote from Teresa’s cooking book. It must take a special skill to use a cooking book as a venue to take a dig at a family member though something tells us Teresa will play dumb deny she meant it in a bad way. But slamming of the family members aside, the book also offers some pretty delish recipes!
In other New Jersey news, the housewives visited the Bravo offices yesterday to do some promotion for the show. Those pictures are below as well as the screen shots from Teresa’s book. Also below is a preview clip from the upcoming premiere episode in which Teresa explains her relationship with her brother Joe and Melissa.

This week,Kim Kardashian took a break from uh uh… crickets, well whatever it is she does! The E! reality star was photographed on a beach getaway in Mexico with her NBA beau Kris Humphries.
The 6ft 9in Kris and the 5ft 2in Kim displayed a ton of PDA while frolicking in Puerto Mita, Mexico for a six day vacay! “Kim was so excited to get some alone time with Kris,” Kim a source told Us Weekly. “They were making out most of the time.”
Kim, 30, and Kris, 26, reportedly stayed at a luxurious ocean front compound owned by Girls Gone Wild creator Joe Francis. The bikini photos of Kim have been taken down at the request of the photo agency but you can still see them at the Daily Mail!
And as we reported last week, E! was holding a contest to see which promo picture would be used to promote the show, and similar to our poll, the “white hot” photo won receiving 59% of the votes. Our poll had similar results with over 62% of you choosing the same promo pic. You can click here to view both choices.
The sneak peak of KUWTK season 6 is below! The season premieres on June 12.
UsWeekly is reporting that Brandi, jilted ex-wife of actor Eddie Cibrian who left her in 2009 for country singer LeAnnRimes, is still in talks with the Bravo network to join the hit franchise.
If you recall, reports came out months ago that Brandi was being considered to join the cast after she was photographed out and about with Lisa Vanderpump’s former pet house guest Cedric Martinez. That news however quickly died down after the second season of the RHOBH began filming weeks ago.
According to a source, the storyline of Brandi, a 38-year-old former model, would of course be about her issues with her ex Eddie, 37, and his new lady love/wife LeAnn, 28. “Wouldn’t you be upset with them?” asks a source close to the mom of sons Mason, 7, and Jake, 4.
Brandi is reportedly even more upset by the sudden nuptials of Eddie and LeAnn a little over a week ago, with the source adding that Brandi and her sons were not told in advance about the wedding. A source close to LeAnn however counters stating, “the boys were told about the wedding three days in advance.”
The Hollywoodlife confirms the UsWeekly story, stating that Brandi is signing on while adding that Playboy playmate Jessica Hall (the same gal caught kissingKendra Wilkinson) is also in talks to join the cast as well.
“Brandi has already started filming for ‘Real Housewives’,” a source close to the show reveals. “She hasn’t officially signed anything yet but she’s interacted with members of the cast on camera.” As for Jessica, she is said to be “negotiating her contract” with Bravo.
It’s becoming increasingly difficult to keep up with all the reported names in talks to join the cast. In addition to Brandi and Jessica, Faye Resnick, Jillian Barberie, Ayda Field,and Jeanie Buss have also been mentioned in the rumor mill. E! news reported a few weeks ago that the final spot for the new housewife came down to Faye and Ayda.
Plus filming on the second season began over a month and a half ago, so we can’t help but wonder if Bravo is planning to add more than one housewife to the show. Perhaps one of the six original BH ladies is leaving mid season. The addition of two new housewives would bring the cast to a total of 8 which seems to be a pretty large number for an already drama filled franchise.
In other news, Kyle Richards was photographed on Monday walking the streets of Beverly Hills with daughters Farrah Aldjufrie and Portia. And it seems Kyle and Farah were a bit busy with having their photos snapped by the paps as poor little Portia walked right into a pole. Thankfully, Portia was okay afterwards. Those pics are below.

UPDATE: TMZ has just confirmed that Brandi has indeed joined the cast of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. According to TMZ, it is a done deal and she has already began filming scenes for the show. In fact, Brandi herself confirmed the news today during an event. Something tells us LeAnn is not going to be happy about this news!
