People are still buzzing about the season finale of Soapnet’sSouthern Belles: Lousiville, which revealed Jeff Stovall cheated on his fiance, Shea Johnson. To thicken the plot, the “other woman” just happened to be Louisville Judge, Katie King.
Katie had also appeared on previous episodes of the show due to cast member, Hadley, helping her with her campaign. The good folks at Springston blogspot (a blog about Louisville New & Politics) were able to get the above photo of Katie and Jeff. The picture was allegedly taken on July 10th during a birthday bash Katie threw for someone. Katie took down the pictures, but the Springston blogger was able to save a copy.
I wonder why Katie would take the pictures down if she had nothing to be ashamed of. And is it just me or does Katie look rather aged for being only 29 years old? Katie seems to be a rather controversial figure in the city of Louisville. There are rumors of drug use, as well as a supposed restraining order taken out against her by an ex boyfriend. Interesting.
There are also reports that Katie and Jeff are no longer together.
Reality seems to have finally set in for Kate Gosselin, who eventually took off her wedding band as news about her estranged husband gallivanting with other women can be seen all over the tabloids. Unlike Jon, Kate has taken a more subtle step toward a new life. For the first time, the reality star was photographed without her ring during a coffee run near her Pennsylvania home.
Are you ready for another reality show? Octuplet mother Nadya Suleman has recently signed a contract for a new reality show that will allow each of the children to get paid $250.00 per day. According to the documents, the show will premiere on Sept 1st.
The contracts were filed Friday in a Los Angeles Superior Court, however it requires approval from a judge. The European production company, Eyeworks, previously involved in other shows like “Breaking Bonaduce”, “The Biggest Loser” and is now working with Nadya.
The contract outlines that the kids will collectively earn $125,000 for 36 days of shooting in the first year of production, $75,000 for 21 days in the second year and $50,000 for 14 days in the third year. The contract also states that 15 percent of the gross compensation will be deposited by Eyeworks into a “Coogan Trust Account,” as required by California law. The account will not be accessed until the children turn 18 or become legally emancipated.
Nadya gave birth to Octuplets on Jan. 26, making them the world’s longest surviving octuplets. The public was outraged when they found out the Octuplet mum was receiving public assistance and already had 6 kids. With all the controversy surrounding Nadya, she became a media target and was under scrutiny.
VH1 has released the Supertrailer of the upcoming 2nd season of Real Chance of Love. You can see the official photos of the cast here, as well as personal/”modeling” photos of the ladies here and here.
Real Chance of Love 2: Back in the Saddle premieres Monday, August 3 at 9/8c. Will you be watching?
We see Gretchen Rossi,Lynne Curtin, and newest housewife, Alexis Bellino enjoying their time in Fort Lauderdale.
I’m guessing this might be a preview of what is to come on the show. These three will be a close unit while 40 year old mean girl Tamra Barney and the always classy Vicki Gunvalson will continue to be miserable together. Jeana Keough, who has been confirmed to be returning to the show, will likely continue to be a neutral party as always.
The season finale of Soapnet’sSouthern Belle: Lousville ended tonight with quite a shocker.
We first find out Kellie decided to stay in Louisville rather than moving to Chicago with her boyfriend, Jeff. Kellie decides to end her pattern of depending too much on the men in her life. Was very happy to see Kellie make this choice. Something about Jeff just doesn’t come off right. He seemed a bit cold in my opinion when telling Kelly he did not want to have children with her in the past episodes.
Julie decides to take charge of her life, and asks a younger guy out. The show says they two are still dating. Emily breaks the news of moving to Vegas to her father, who finally gives her his blessing. Hadley finally sees what we all see in Russ and decides to end things with him. We also find out Hadley and Kellie will be working together on Kelly’s new dating business – “Dating Sucks.“
The show definitely saved the best for last when we see a much thinner Shea tearfully talk about her heartbreak. Shea informs us that she found out her fiance, Jeff Stovall, was cheating on her the same week her mother died. To make things worse, Jeff was with the other woman the night her mom was being buried.
This was quite a shocker. Though I had heard the rumors that the engagement was over, I did not expect it to be due to infidelity. The two seemed to be loving together, especially when Shea gave in and agreed to get the big house Jeff wanted.
There is a rumor going around that the woman Jeff cheated with was Katie King. The same Katie that Hadley was campaigning for in earlier episodes. I’m not certain on the accuracy of this. Others are saying Jeff is still with the woman he cheated on Shea with, whomever that might be. I really felt for Shea tonight. Having to bury her mother and cancel her wedding in the same week has to be tough. According to the show, Jeff refused to appear on camera to talk about what happened.
UPDATE – It’s pretty much confirmed that the woman Jeff was cheating with was indeed Katie King. Shea also updated her facebook status last night sarcastically saying “Your Honor Katie King.” Katie is a Judge by the way. Pretty pathetic for someone in Katie’s position to do such a thing.
Things seem to be getting very serious between Jon Gosselin and his new reporter girlfriend of 5 days. UsWeekly is now reporting that Kate Major has quit her job as a Star magazine reporter due to a “conflict of interest between her reporting duties for the magazine and her relationship with Jon Gosselin.”
Jill Zarin is also continuing her self appointed duty of being the unofficial spokesperson for the couple saying, “I think it’s authentic… I think it’s fast. I think it happened very quickly.”
Jon has yet to publicly comment on this new relationship.
Meanwhile Jon’s other girlfriend, Hailey Glassman, spoketo People this morning saying she had no idea Jon was seeing another woman. “That’s news to me” says Hailey. She then got teary eye according to People and said, “I still love Jon and Jon loves me.”
I’m literally at a lost for words. Are we being punked?
The latest in Jon’s Gosselin’s mid life crisis is news that he is now dating Star Magazine reporter – Kate Major. Seriously, we couldn’t make these stories up even if we had the best soap writers on staff.
“I didn’t mean it to happen, it just did,” Kate, 26, said Tuesday. “I went to do a story on Jon and ended up falling for him.” Kate was first photographed with Jon this Saturday at NYC restaurant, where according to an onlooker, she was described as ” flirting shamelessly with Jon.”
The “new couple” was also seen dining last night in the Hamptons with Michael Lohan (Lindsay Lohan’s father) and Real Housewives of New York star Jill Zarin, whom Jon reportedly asked “for media advice.”
Jill also confirms to Peoplethat Jon and Kate are now dating saying, “He didn’t seem smitten. They weren’t all over each other. But they’re definitely dating. It came up in conversation. She had her hands on him. But she’s young. This is a girl who is going to want to have babies. Does he really want to go out with another young girl and have kids?”
