Ali had the following to say during her appearance on Lopez Tonight Tuesday: “Just because he wears really nice turtleneck sweaters does not mean he’s gay!” Jake has been the subject of gay rumors since his nasty split with Vienna Girardi last month, after Vienna, 24, told Star magazine he refused to have sex with her for months.
BuzzSugar also did an all new interview with Ali during which she discusses being dumped by Frank Neuschafer, what really happens on those overnight dates, and briefly touches on her final decision.
Excerpts from Ali’s interview is below –
BuzzSugar: Was it difficult to watch this week’s episode with Frank again? Ali Fedotowsky: I really did get emotional. I’ve been watching the shows and sort of reliving them, so to see myself that down is hard. Watching yourself cry is difficult! It just reaffirmed that I’m so much better off for him leaving. This whole time, I had always said to my producers that I knew Frank would hurt me at same point. He really made me feel insecure throughout the thing, and I said to him, ‘My relationship with you scares me.’ I’m positive that I would not have ended up with Frank in the end, because I wouldn’t have been able to commit to someone who scared me that much.
Buzz: Last night we saw the overnight dates — are they as awkward as they look? AF: So awkward! I shouldn’t even say awkward, but you don’t know what people are expecting. Because I’m offering a guy an overnight date card, that doesn’t mean we’re going to go in the room and take all of our clothes off and get into bed! Yes, I’m giving him an overnight card, but I am not the type of girl to be with one guy, and then a minute later be with another guy. I would never do that. Ever. It’s not what people think it is. I don’t know that I’m even necessarily ready to sleep next to a guy one night and then another guy the next night.
Buzz: Well, we know Frank is out, but there are conflicting rumors saying that you’re single or that you’re engaged and already planning your wedding! Has it been difficult to keep the real outcome a secret? AF: I’m good at keeping secrets, so it’s been OK. But it is really hard in the sense that I don’t want to keep in the secret! I just want to be like, ‘You’re wrong, you’re wrong, you’re kind of right but wrong.’ I just want everything out there, so I can talk about it and live my life whether I’m a single woman or whether I’m happily engaged.
Buzz: So, I take it you’re happy with your decision? AF: I’m so happy with my decision. I wouldn’t change anything!

Eric’s addition to the show is a bit of a surprise considering he has had a pretty successful career as an actor having starred in films such as The Dark Knight and Fight Club. Eric, 54, is the brother of popular actress Julia Roberts, and father of budding actress Emma Roberts.
In other “celebrity” news, TMZ also reported this week that Donald Trump is no longer interested in having Rachel Uchitel on the Celebrity Apprentice. For those not familiar with Rachel, she is the mistress extraordinaire who has bedded the likes of Tiger Woods and actor David Boreanaz.
Donald had asked Rachel to be on the next season of Celebrity Apprentice and she had accepted, however it seems the Donald was none too pleased with Rachel’s decision to do Celebrity Rehab.
“It’s a terrible decision. We have zero interest in her now,” said Donald to TMZ before adding that “‘Celebrity Apprentice‘ is a huge show and ‘Celebrity Rehab’ is not. I have 10 people who want to be on the show for every slot that’s available. I’m moving on.”
When asked about the number of men porn star Danielle had slept with, Kim G. had the following to say in her video interview with Celebrity Magnet via RadarOnline, “I’ve lost track. Maybe thousands, who knows? She’s in the business!”
“She spread her legs, look at her on the pole the last time we were at that place where we were on the pole – I looked like an idiot,” she added. And yes Kim, you did look an idiot. A major idiot.
And when it comes to Danielle’s rumored lesbian relationship with singer-songrwiter Lori Michaels, Kim G. has her own theory. “The reason why she’s with a woman now too is because you know why, guys don’t want to f*** her,” the mother-of-three sniped.
“I don’t think they want her,” she claimed, going on to say that she thinks Lori was pursued by Danielle. “I think she’s going after her, maybe they feed off each other because one wants one for one reason and one wants it for another… Then she’ll be on her own,” predicted Kim G.
What’s sad is the claim of Danielle sleeping with thousands of men isn’t a far stretch as Danielle has admitted her past as an escort prostitution whore.

Bethenny delivered her baby girl Bryn Hoppy back in May. Bryn came 5 weeks early for the first time mom. Above is a new photo of baby Bryn with Bethenny and dad Jason Hoppy.
Coming up tonight, 5 weeks before the due date and fresh off their honeymoon, the newlyweds realize that the time has come… Bethenny is going into labor! Bethenny and Jason frantically try to rearrange their busy schedules (well, Bethenny at least), get to the hospital and stay calm through the hours and hours of labor as they welcome baby Bryn into the world. As usual, the couple keeps things amusing, even through the labor pains! A preview clip is below.
In other Bethenny news, fresh off the feud with fellow reality star Omarosa, could a new feud be brewing up for Bethenny? That answer is yes according to E! News. Bethenny, during an interview with E!, had some rather harsh words for Bristol Palin and her rumored reality show with baby daddy Levi Johnston.
“If it was her mom getting married or remarried it would be interesting,” said Bethenny. “If it was Sarah was raising the baby, maybe. But what’s the deal with the two of them?”
“I don’t know what they are and I don’t even know who they are,” she added. “I don’t get it. And it would be too awkward to watch them in something L.A. because they don’t belong there.” Ouch, neither Bristol nor her people have yet to respond to Bethenny’s meanunprovoked comments.
Bethenny, who has stated on numerous occasions that she would rather not return to the Real Housewives of NYC, is however open to doing a second season of BGM, perhaps this time titled Bethenny Going For Baby #2? “I can’t have that many more because I’m not a spring chicken,” said the 39-year-old. “But my husband really wants to have another one. I think maybe subconsciously because his brother passed away and he’s now an only child is part of the reason he’s really desperate to have another.”
She also adds that her success with her diet books, drinks, shows etc is still somewhat of a surprise to her. “I thought I was destined for something special, but I certainly didn’t know it could be like this,” she said. “It’s very surreal.”
A preview clip of Bethenny as her water breaks is below –

The 49-year-old matchmaker, who finally got engaged last year to beau Andy Friedmanafter 5 long years of dating, sat down for a video interview with Popeater during which she discussed filming the 3rd season of her hit show in NYC, her wedding plans and sounds off on some headline making celebrities.
When asked what was one of the biggest challenges she faced since moving her show from Los Angeles to New York, Patti doesn’t mince her words, answering: “Finding hot girls in New York city.”
On how regular women can go about snagging their millionaires – “Well if you want to get a millionaire, you got to hit a steak house… Go where the men are. If they are playing golf, go there. If they are playing tennis, go there.
On her upcoming wedding plans – “No we haven’t planned one yet, Bravo’s kept me on a tight leash. She later added that “there is no rush,” and that she has no plans to have any children. She is however open to “adopting someday.”
Patti also dishes up some love advice for some celebrities –
On Bristol Palin and Levi Johnston – “That’s the ridiculous thing, he has no interest in her. He had a baby out of wedlock, he’s selling her down the river and she’s selling herself down the river. This is a shotgun wedding at most and they’re never getting married.
On Carrie Underwood and Mike Fisher – “I love this couple. I knew the minute like she made a decision to get married like after twenty one, that girl would find true love. And she found an athlete, and he’s very wealthy in Canada besides playing hockey. She’s marrying into a good family. I’m happy for her! A baby in 2 years.”
On Jessica Simpson and new ex-NFL player beau Eric Johnson – “Umm he has no money, no job. Seriously what are we thinking here? He basically is 30-years-old, making her do cupping, trying herbs. This is a creepy deepy guy.”
When asked which other celebs she would like to sound off on, Patti revealed she would like to help Kate Hudson and Jessica Simpson find love, then going on to refer to them as the “serial daters” and “the crazy pants.” Patti would also like to put Tiger Woods and Jesse James in another group to help them. Helping Mel Gibson is also not off limits, that is if he decides to become a jew according to Patti.
Good to see Patti is still the same ol Patti. The 3rd season of the Millionaire Matchmaker continues to film in NYC. Bravo has yet to announce the premiere date.

The Bachelorette star Ali Fedotowsky is opening up to Ok magazine about her all new weight loss. The photo on the left is the before shot taken on June 22nd, and the photo on the right is Ali today.
The 25-year-old reality star tells the mag her weight went up and down during the taping of the show. “I was always hungry!” Ali tellsOK! of packing on 10 pounds while filming. “I didn’t think much of it, but everyone noticed.
So how did Ali lose the 10 pounds fast? “I am not the person who will be at the gym all the time,” she confesses to OK!. “Usually, I do the treadmill for about 30 minutes, or I will try to do something else.”
Eat healthy 6 days a week, 1 day is cheat day: “I am good during the week, and one day I pig out,” Ali says. “I love pizza from Domino’s or Pizza Hut and a Diet Coke.”
Cook your own food. “I love egg white omelets because I can actually cook the egg whites myself!,” says Ali.
Buy your own food. “I go to the grocery store,” says Ali, “and I will buy the ready-made chicken breasts from the deli counter. I buy four or five at a time, and I’ll have them with a salad.”
Have healthy snacks. “I eat chicken breast as a high-protein snack with some honey mustard or barbecue sauce,” Ali says. “I also love air-popped popcorn.”
Do 30 minute cardio kicks. “I do the treadmill for about 30 minutes,” Ali says. “I [also] love kick-boxing. You can think of your ex-boyfriends while your doing it, like, ‘I HATE YOU!’”
Try a good pair of shoes. “I just got the Sketched Shape-ups sneakers and they really work,” Ali says. “I went for a walk wearing them, and it was really a good workout because I was using so many more muscles in my legs than I usually do.”
The Bachelorette finale episode airs July 26th on ABC.
The wannabe housewife, who might or might not be pushing at least a 100-years-old, tells Celebrity Magnet that Danielle “blew a great friendship.”
“I liked her – I thought she was a great mom. I went to her house, we went out, she made dinner a couple of times,” explains Kim. “I introduced her to other friends of mine, we had a nice friendship.”
When asked what went wrong in the friendship, Kim G. says, “If it’s not Danielle’s way then she’s not happy. You can’t sit down and discuss logic or things that are going wrong in your relationship or friendship because she’ll cut you off and chew you down.”
And in the pot calling the kettle black news of the day, Kim G. also refers to Danielle as being an attention whore. “She wants attention like immediate,” says Kim, recalling Danielle having a diva moment when the pair was out shopping. “One day we were out in Neiman Marcus and she said, ‘I don’t carry bags, they can carry the bags for me or they can send them to my house.’
Kim however made sure to add that Danielle “doesn’t have money, and she returns everything.”
It gets even better folks as Kim G. accuses Danielle of not being loyal or trustworthy. “She really never said anything that would kill me, it’s the backstabbing, it’s the sneakiness, I just said, ‘Where’s the loyalty? Where’s the trust?, says the pot.
In other prostitution whore news, RadarOnline is reporting that Danielle called the cops this weekend after an ex-con from her past, Danny Aguilar, called her demanding a payment of $100,000.
And no this is not the same Danny, Danielle’s other ex-con buddy, who appears regularly on the show. According to Radar, Danny Aguilar is a convicted felon who was charged as Danielle’s co-defendant during her infamous 1986 arrest for kidnapping, drugs, extortion etc. Perhaps it would be easier to name the crimes Danielle hasn’t been arrested for.
Danny reportedly called Danielle on Sunday night demanding $100,000 he says she still owes him for bailing her out years ago with some big time drug dealers.
Danny told Radar, “My money got her out of trouble with these drug dealers. They wanted her dead and I didn’t want them to kill her. I paid for it. We all got popped, everyone went to jail and she snitched.”
After the 1986 arrest, Danielle entered into a plea bargain with prosecutors and agreed to testify against Danny and others in exchange for five years probation and mandatory cocaine testing.
Danielle called the Wayne County police station on Sunday to report Danny was stalking her. Danny however makes it clear he is no stalker, “I’m the ‘Real McCoy, I’m the one that did 15 years in a federal penitentiary over you. I’m no stalker.”
Which brings us back to Jeff Lewis’sappearance on Watch What Happens this week, during which he asked how many times a day does Danielle call up the Wayne County police?
