According to Jake, she must be intelligent, confident, energetic and spontaneous. He also admits to looking forward to being a father.
During “The Bachelorette”, several fans fell in love with Jake during his solo date with Jillian Harris because of his reputation of being a honest guy with an open heart. It doesn’t hurt that he is also good looking. Most viewers were astounded when Jillian rejected Jake right before the hometown dates on last season’s Bachelorette.
Now Jake gets to meet and choose one of these 25 women to be his best friend and soul mate.
The drama in Jon Gosselin’s life doesn’t seem to be coming to an end any time soon, instead it worsens by the day. Several of Jon’s close associates including Hailey Glassman may be used as witnesses against Jon in TLC’s lawsuit against him, reports RadarOnline. Since these people will be under oath, there is no telling the type of information that will be revealed against Jon.
TLC alleges that the Jon & Kate Plus 8 dad breached his exclusive contract with them by giving paid interviews to other networks and selling photos of himself to tabloids. Their lawyers have gotten off to a fast start in determining Jon’s other sources of income. The law firm has a reputation for being fierce and has been very busy since TLC filed the suit in October.
According toRadarOnline, on November 4 the court granted several motions filed by the law firm, allowing them to depose Hailey, Jon’s bodyguard Thomas Meinelt, Michael Heller, Mark Heller, Michael Lohan and Matthew Kirschner.
Since TLC’s attorneys have been granted the right to depose the Hellers (Jon’s previous lawyers), they most likely will not be allowed to represent Jon in the case, as they are now witnesses. All parties involved will be asked to divulge information that could possibly hurt Jon in the suit. The Hellers will certainly be asked about every non-TLC pay that Jon has received and Hailey will also be forced to reveal what she knows.
Radar is also reporting that a date has been set for TLC’s case against Jon. He is required to appear December 14 in a Maryland courtroom when a judge will hear TLC’s motion for a preliminary injunction. It is likely he will be questioned under oath about his income on this date.
In other news, Jon has now decided to take on yoga to help reduce the self induced stress in his life. And paparazzi just happened to snap a photo of him practicing his yoga. Wondering how much he got paid to sell this photo of himself. The photo is below —
When Kandi Burrussfirst joined the cast of the Atlanta Housewives, no one knew what to expect from this newbie. Throughout all the drama, Kandi has managed to keep her cool in dealing with love, life and drama. During the season, Kandi got along with all the housewives’ except NeNe Leakes. However, in the interview with ESSENCE, she reveals that she and NeNe are cool. The Grammy-winning singer and songwriter also talks about her upcoming album.
Below are excerpts from Kandi’s interview with ESSENCE:
ESSENCE.COM: Now that the reunion show is upon us, do you feel you and NeNe had any resolve?
KANDI BURRUSS: I didn’t really need any resolve. I feel the argument between her and me was so petty. I’m one of those who believes if it’s nothing and she’s cool with me then I’m good too, so let’s keep it moving. I would say that during the cast’s last trip to L.A. we pretty much got along, and I was thinking, okay, she’s cool again. Fine, then let’s be cool.
ESSENCE.COM: Before your fiance’s untimely passing he gave one interview and shared his thoughts about your mom. How’d you feel about what he said?
BURRUSS: I was pretty upset and not feeling too tough about parts of it because it wasn’t necessary. He said that she needs a man, but he tried to hook my mother up with some married guy. I asked him if he was married and A.J. told me no. The first time my mother and this man met, they had a conversation and he told her that he wanted to be honest with her and admitted that he was married, so they never dated or saw each other after that. My mom was angry and called to tell me, and I was like, wel,l I didn’t know. But I try not to harp on that because he’s no longer here, but that was my gut reaction when I read the article.
ESSENCE.COM: Congrats on releasing your EP of your upcoming album, “B.L.O.G.” (B—— Love Online Gossip). Have you been inspired to write a song in memory of A.J.?
BURRUSS: On the EP there’s a song on I’d written earlier on A.J. and my relationship called “I Just Know.” It really could be a wedding song it’s so beautiful and it fit the best point of our relationship. So my holding the release of my album isn’t so much because I want to add songs as a tribute, but it’s too much going on right now and instead of making rush decisions I was like, Let me just slow down after experiencing two deaths back-to-back. Again, this EP will just give my fans a taste of what’s to come on my album.
ESSENCE.COM: Well, we can’t wait after knowing the magic you worked on Kim’s single “Tardy for the Party.” Is there anything you’d like to say in parting?
BURRUSS: I just want to thank everyone for showing so much love and support over these last few weeks, especially those who sent me Twitter messages. Although I wasn’t replying, I really did appreciate them. Every time I got teary-eyed I’d read those messages and they would make me feel better. I don’t know why the kind thought of strangers lifts you up, but they did and I’m so grateful for that kindness.
They’re back! The original housewives of bravo are returning for their 5th season tonight.
The Real Housewives of Orange County have pretty much been in the headlines for the past few months. Whether it be Gretchen Rossi’s leaked photos, Lynne Curtin’seviction saga, or Vicki Gunvalson’strashy bar behavior, It’s safe to say these six women will be keeping us entertained for weeks to come.
The DailyBeast caught up with the OC Housewives to discuss their new season, and changes in their lives. Vicki claims the show has negatively affected her insurance business, leading her to almost not return for the 5th season. “I almost lost a very large client of mine—a $2 million client—because he Googled me and said he didn’t like what he was seeing on the TV show,” Gunvalson, 47, told The Daily Beast.
Bravo promises the upcoming season will address the financial woes of some of the ladies, including that of Jeana Keough, who’s divorce and a down real-estate market prompted her to quit the show to focus on work full-time. She will be leaving the show after 3 episodes. Jeana however reveals other reasons for leaving the show, “I just didn’t feel appreciated by the girls or the network,” she said.
Tamra Barney, 42, will be one of the housewives dealing with financial woes. Her home is currently listed as a short sale, and she has had to let both a nanny and a maid go to save cash. This season will also deal with Tamra doing a lot of arguing with her husband Simon Barney. “He did not want to come back this season, and I did,” she said. “He’s very private and conservative. We’re having a lot of financial problems, and he just didn’t want to expose that.”
Tonight’s episode will show Gretchen reflecting on the death of her deceased fiance, and confronting Tamra about the things Tamra said about her last season. It will also feature Vicki skydiving, and Lynn contemplating having a facelift.

The Real Housewives of Orange County star filed a restraining order against Jay earlier this year claiming harassment. A judge dismissed the order in May, with prejudice. It was said that Gretchen did not show up for her court appearance.
Jay racked up fees of around $19k defending himself against the restraining order, which Gretchen has now been ordered to pay. Photoglou’s attorney claimed in earlier papers that the lawsuit was frivolous, and that it was filed by Gretchen as an attempt to try to save face.
Jay The loser has spent the entire year leaking photos of he and Gretchen to the press. You can see some of those photos here and here. The 19k should be chump change to Gretchen who inherited $2.5 million from her late fiance’s estate.
Jon Gosselin and his on/off/pseudo girlfriend Hailey Glassman, continue their attention whoring ways in their latest interview with Entertainment Tonight.
We reported yesterday that Jon stormed off the set of the interview during an argument between he and Hailey, well today comes news that the two also clashed over thanksgiving dinner during the interview. Hailey also reveals the Jon & Kate Plus 8 dad will be spending Thanksgiving with she and her family, and not with his 8 kids.
“My family and I would never let him eat Thanksgiving dinner alone in an apartment,” says Hailey, even though it seems as though the two are breaking up on camera. “He’s coming to our house for Thanksgiving. I don’t care.” Jon adds, “I still planned on going to her house on Thanksgiving; that was on my schedule,” raising the eyebrows of Hailey.
Hailey isn’t thrilled with his answer. “On your schedule? What do you mean, ‘On my schedule?'” she asks. “Let’s see, Kate has the kids, and she’s having a nice huge meal with Steve and his family. Uh, let’s see, should I go to Hailey’s or should I sit in my apartment all alone?”
“Sorry, I used the wrong term,” says Jon. “I plan on going — I made a promise to her family I would go to her house.”
“Made a promise? You’re not doing my family any favors!” replies Hailey. “We know what the right thing to do is. We know what we both need,” she continues. “He needs to do his thing and I need to do my thing. We both know this.”
Pretty certain I just lost a few brain cells reading the above conversation between these two. It’s safe to say these two are being paid a nice amount to air out their dirty laundry.
The 2009Soul Train awards was filmed at the Georgia World Congress Center on November 3, 2009, which of course meant the Real Housewives of Atlanta had to be in attendance.
