Reality television star Joey Kovar was found dead on Friday, and his August 18th autopsy report was inconclusive and the cause of death will be determined by pending toxicology reports. Joey struggled with addiction while appearing on The Real World: Hollywood and also did a stint on Celebrity Rehab in 2009.
Hollywood Life is reporting that Joey went to a female friend’s home in Chicago Ridge, Illinois the night before he died. He told her he’d been doing cocaine and asked her to take him to score more drugs. She refused, but she reveals that Joey then took some Viagra and the pair fooled around but did not have sex. Afterwards, Joey’s friend fell asleep, and when she awoke she found him unconscious and bleeding from the nose and ears.
It’s a truly sad story, and our thoughts go out to Joey’s family and friends.

DID YOU WATCH JOEY ON THE REAL WORLD AND CELEBRITY REHAB?
I’ll be honest, Real Housewives of Beverly Hills is the hardest show for me to watch, yet it’s also my favorite of the franchise. Adrienne Maloof and her husband Dr. Paul Nassif had my heart early on…they seem very down to earth to be on a show where the women eat diamonds and cocktail hour begins at breakfast. The RHOBH women are on another level from their Bravo counterparts. Maybe that is why it’s so hard to see some of our faves floundering in their personal lives.
Case in point? Adrienne and Paul. Their constant bickering was funny during the first season, but now, as we approach season 3, it’s become sad. It was no surprise when the news broke of the couple’s separation. The duo seems to love one another, but yet neither can miss the opportunity to call out the others’ weaknesses. That’s not good for a marriage, I guess.
Does everyone in the Kardashian/Jenner brood think they are above the law? Apparently so, it seems. Future GiseleKendall Jenner has recently been accused of nearly causing a horrible collision due to texting while driving. For the record, it is illegal for anyone under 18 years old in California to use a mobile phone even WITH a hands free device. Dear Kendall is just sixteen.
The terrified commuter shares with Radar Online, “The car was all over the lane. I thought the driver was intoxicated! When I pulled up alongside her car, I realized it was Kendall Jenner. She was texting and driving!”
The driver continues, “I was trying to get off the freeway, and I couldn’t merge into the right lane because (Kendall) wasn’t paying attention and her car would have drifted into mine.”
When the passenger in the victim’s car began snapping cell phone pics of the wrongdoing Jenner, it didn’t phase Kendall. “When she realized we were taking pictures of her, she gave me a dirty look but continued texting, laughing with her friends in the car,” reveals the driver. Why oh why am I not surprised? Perhaps the Biebs should do a special texting while driving PSA just for her.
TELL US-ARE YOU SHOCKED TO HEAR KENDALL WAS BREAKING THE LAW?
Leaping lizards! This week’s Real Housewives of New York followed the same formula it has all season: Heather Thomson is frustrated with Sonja Morgan and her toaster oven shenanigans, Sonja is flighty, Jacques gets more Gellar-like, criticism goes over LuAnn de Lesseps‘ head, Aviva Drescher has anxiety and a kinky, super tan dad, Reid is adorbs, Carole Radziwill is the voice of reason with a less than stellar wardrobe, and Heather’s Cheshire cat grin irks the poo out of pinot swilling Ramona Singer. Lather, rinse, repeat. So it was kind of a shock to learn that this episode was the most watched since the premiere with 1.7 million viewers tuning in to the Bravo show.
Thankfully, we have the women’s Bravo blogs to rehash the events of the week. Let the passive aggressive digs begin!
Real Housewives of Orange County‘s Alexis Bellino may buy cars and diamonds and boobs, but she isn’t buying Twitter followers, y’all! Last week, the misunderstood Jesus Barbie’s popularity soared when she scored 30,000 new Twitter followers in one day. After her surge, former OC househusband Micah Tanous tweeted, “I just answered a call from the company that is SELLING all the current #RHOC cast their Twitter followers, What a F’ing Joke!” This led Tamra Barney to follow suit with “once a fake, always a fake” and Heather Dubrow to comment “lame, but not surprising.”
Alexis wants to set the record straight, so it’s no shock she gives Fox News the exclusive. She claims that the 30,000 followers quite possibly could be a result of a security breach.
I always knew Catelynn Lowell was a stand-up girl, although it wouldn’t be hard to look like a gem given the shenanigans and drama of her Teen Mom counterparts. She and her boyfriend Tyler Baltierra made the difficult decision to choose adoption for their daughter, and they both seem to be on the right track…which can’t be easy given their addict parents who happen to be in an abusive relationship with each other. It’s super twisted.
Anyhoo, Catelynn has a six-year-old brother Nick, and she doesn’t want him growing up in the same environment she had as a small time. She’s even pledged to adopt her brother if her mom April Baltierra falls off the wagon again.
There’s a battle brewing between two MTV reality stars…one who is famous for getting pregnant and spending a lot of time in jail, the other is famous for getting drunk and spending a lot of time in clubs. To whom could I be referring? Well duh! It’s the Teen Mom everyone loves to hate Jenelle Evans and everyone’s favorite meatball Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi!
Tired of her Twitter followers calling her out for being a bad mom, Jenelle decided to divert attention to another mom-to-be. She recently tweeted a picture of the Jersey Shore star with an alleged Snooki quote reading, “There is no way I’m changing any diapers when my baby is born. That is disgusting. That’s what maids are for and babysitters. I don’t have time for that. I’ll have them do that stuff. I’ll be there for the good parts, like dressing my son up and making sure he got style. You don’t have to cook or clean or change diapers to be a good mother. My son will have everything he wants. He’s going to be a little star like his mommy.” Accompanying the pictures, Jenelle wrote, “OMG no offense… but you call ME a bad mother… but look what @snooki said about her baby… thats straight F–KED UP.”
Cha-ching! Hear that? It’s the sound of Teresa Giudice cashing in on her humiliation with another magazine cover! She’s embarrassed, y’all! If you recall, her husband Juicy Joe calls her a not so nice word on the upcoming episode of Real Housewives of New Jersey. He’s such a sweet talker.
As we all know, when Teresa has something to say–anything to say–she heads over to chat with her pals at In Touch Weekly…provided there is a cover up for grabs. And what cover would sell more magazines than one of a distraught and humiliated Teresa talking about her marriage to Juicy? It’s sheer marketing genius.
