Following his blink and you miss it 72-day marriage to Kimmie Kardashian, a new report reveals Kris Humphries is still “hurting” over the way things went down.
HollywoodLife highlights a new report from Victoria Gotti for Reality Weekly which discusses Kimmie’s ex-husband as he continues to feel like he was used.
According to Victoria Gotti’s information, Kris wants to get back at Kim for her minute marriage. A source says, “[Kris is telling] everyone that he was definitely used for publicity purposes. Kris is really beyond hurting. He’s been telling his family and friends he feels like a fool.”
The insider reveals that the Humphries are concerned about Kris’ well being. They are all hoping that he will quickly get over this pitfall and “move on with his life.” Kim, however, is enjoying the media circus comparing the duo’s short union to that of Yankee’s great Joe DiMaggio and cinema bombshell Marilyn Monroe. Apparently, Kris is on board with the comparison, as the insider says he’s referring to himself as “Joey D.”
And because they aren’t already coming at us from every conceivable angle, the sisters Kardashian are coming up with their own magazine… who wants to get a subscription? The same blog is reporting that Page Six has the dirt that the Kardashian Klan are working on a kagazine to market to the kublic.
Pimp momager Kris Jenner has leaked that her daughters are hoping to launch their own publication. Star magazine owner, American Media, Inc., is apparently offering the Kardashian klan their own magazine, the reasoning being that the divorce backlash has made them more famous.
While there is no set plan for the magazine as of yet, many outlets are speculating that it will be just another vehicle for the family “spin their own stories.” Other sources are predicting the publication will be a “print version of the Kardashian family photo-heavy blogs”.
Moving on up (Jeffersons!), and moving on to the more rational and likeable Kardashian sister, Khloe Kardashian and husband Lamar Odom have recently moved into their new Dallas home. EOnline.com has the inside scoop on the couple’s new digs.
The couple have decided to lease a two-bedroom condo at the W Dallas Victory Hotel & Residences in downtown Dallas. Khlomar are paying $7,500 a month for the property which was originally listed for sale for $1.625 million.
A local realtor, Steve Rigely from Rogers Healy and Associates, reveals, “It has floor-to-ceiling windows with a view of the city, which I think they really enjoyed.” He should know, as he did lease the property to the new Texas transplants. Among the amenities of the duo’s new space is an infinity pool, a lap pool, a concierge service, two work-out centers, an amazing spa and a restaurant helmed by Top Chef judge Tom Colicchio. Where do I sign? Will they take Monopoly money as down payment instead of actual cash?
Thankfully, the 33-story tower is right around the corner from the American Airlines Center, so Lamar can get to his basketball gig easily and without a lot of fan fair. Living mere blocks from where the Mavs play is just another perk for this upscale move. As the realtor points out, “He can just walk to work!” I’m sure he does, Steve. I’m sure he does.

It’s an all new Jerzday, GTLers! Last night was the season premiere of Jersey Shore which found the gang back at the Shore for Round Three. I have to say, I love the local seasons as compared to Miami and Italy. The drama continues as Mike “The Situation” (or the Saduation) Sorrentino won’t stop with proving true the fact he hooked up with Snooks while she was with Jionni. Without further ado, I’m going to Jersey Shore, b*thches… and I may rip your heads off along the way!
Ciao Florence, s’up Jersey. There’s a montage of the group leaving Italy, although it’s clear they are thoroughly thankful for their experiences abroad. Or not. Fast forward two seconds to a Jersey shuttle ride and the whole cast is riding out to that infamous house that once had an Italian flag spray painted on the garage. What happened to the antics of watching separate housemates hilariously make their way back to the Shore? I guess production costs called for “an altogether now” arrival. Oh, nevermind… they went straight from Italy to Seaside. That’s quite a spring break! One thing hasn’t changed… no one wants to room with creepy oldMike.

On the New Year’s Day premiere of Mob Wives, reality star Renee Graziano was looking forward to what she called her fully body makeover. Going into surgery, Renee was anticipating a flatter tummy and a rounder tush. What she got was a near death experience and more than two weeks in the hospital after she lost over six pints off blood when the stitches on her back ripped open during an attempt to sit upright.
In a recent interview with HollywoodLife.com, Renee recounts what it felt like before she was rushed to the emergency room. She recalls, “I knew something was wrong. I felt my life slipping. I felt everything drain out of my body. I knew I was dying. Thank God from up above [that I didn't].”
As for her continuing recovery, Renee admits, “I wake up every day in pain. There was a lot of scar tissue that was left inside. It’s painful. It’s very uncomfortable.”
With her pain comes a warning. “Research your plastic surgeon. I would do it again, but know who you are dealing with,” Renee advises. “You are making a life decision.”
While her wounds heal, Renee is still hurt that her (seemingly former) friend and co-star Carla Facciolo made no attempt to come see her or even call during the difficult time. Renee tells the site, “I’ve always said that Carla is the ice princess. Now, she went from being the ice princess to being a plain, cold block of ice. Carla is block of ice. As boring as it is to watch it melt is as boring as what it is to be in her company. I have nothing to say to that girl.”
Renee continues, saying she has no regrets about Carla not receiving an invitation to her birthday party. “It was a very good decision. It was my party. I wanted to celebrate my life,” Renee states. “I didn’t want anybody around me that gave me conflict.” Um, that would be great if it weren’t for the giant free-for-all that is going to erupt at Renee’s party in the upcoming episode.
We all know Karen Gravano and Drita D’avanzoare about to let the insults and fists fly, picking up lots of other brawling participants along their way. Renee reveals she was clueless about the ladies’ impending throw down, claiming, “I was minding my own business. I was having a good time laughing, dancing and singing at the party. I was unaware of what was going to happen. I would never put anybody in that position. As the story unfolds, you will understand who hits who. It’s just a crazy old bunch of girls.” Takes one to know one?
Of course, Renee tends to be the mother hen with her cast mates. While Karen and Drita clearly ruined her party she’s willing to overlook their drama. She says, “It would be really nice to see them make up.”
What I’m sure was nice for Renee and her fellow mob ladies to see was their show rating as the second most watched show on New Year’s night. Over 2.36 million viewers tuned in to see the smackdown premiere of the second season! This marks a 56% increase over the first season’s premiere episode.
With the drama we’re about to see unfold, there is no doubt the viewers will keep flocking to their televisions every Sunday of the season!

WHAT DO YOU THINK OF RENEE’S INTERVIEW? SHOULD CARLA HAVE REACHED OUT AFTER HER SURGERY? DO BELIEVE KAREN AND DRITA WILL BE ABLE TO RECONCILE?
It’s time to be schooled in all things Love & Hip Hop thanks to recent sit-downs with cast members Chrissy Lampkin and Kimbella Vanderhee. On the syllabus this semester? How To Be A Kept Woman, My Man Doesn’t Cheat, Drink Tossing 101 and Crackwhores from the Valley (that’s an upper lever course — you’ll need to take the prerequisite Strippers from the Valley, first).
Speaking with BitchieLife.com, Chrissy discusses her relationship with Jim Jones, those pesky infidelity rumors that seem to follow around those in this industry and what she’s like when VH1′s camera’s stop rolling. A portion of that interview is below.
[Y]ou said on the show that you didn’t work. So does Jim support you currently?
Yeah. He takes good care of me. I don’t care how people take it. I get flack all the time. He’s my man. What–you want him not to? I came up in a time when that’s what men did and aspire to do. What man doesn’t want to take care of his woman? [Before] I was never a person that didn’t have anything. When I met Jimmy, I had my own apartment and car. He’s taken it to a bigger level. I’ll be fine.
Being that you’re with someone like Jim–on a higher level than the average Joe– do you feel you have to accept infidelity as a part of your relationship?
You should never ever accept it. Everybody has individual issues in relationships. Is that something that I want to deal with, absolutely not. Is that something I have dealt with with Jimmy, no. Am I a realist? Absolutely, but I don’t dwell on that type of stuff because it doesn’t come my way.
You’ve never had infidelity issues with Jim?
I can tell you on my life, not once. There’s no girls calling my phone, no one comes to my house, I don’t have it. We have other problems. We’re not problem-free, but that’s just one I don’t have. [People just assume] he’s the worst! He’s a flirt. Don’t get it twisted. He has fun flirting, but I don’t know how far it goes and I don’t look for it. It’s never come my way.
Being that you don’t look for it, are you a woman that is secure enough to know she doesn’t have to check her man’s email, phone and personal things?
I don’t want to do it. It’s not even about being secure. It’s a recipe for disaster because you can see something that’s innocent and if you’re looking for it your mind will tell you it’s something else. I stay away from that. If it’s something real, it will come out and it will come to me. Thus far, I don’t have that problem.
How has dating Jim changed your life?
It’s taught me patience. It’s taught me that if you stick with something you believe in, then God makes great things happen.
What’s your life like outside Jim Jones?
Chrissy likes to be around friends and family. Chrissy likes to take care of her 70-pound dog who I think is my son. That’s my homie. I take care of my house. I do regular things. I’m trying to get into charity work for young girls at the age where they’re old enough to want to do it and too young to do anything about their lives. I think that’s a critical time when they need to be given the tools to make wise decisions. I want to get involved with that.
What do you want people to know about you so they can stop assuming?
I just want people to know I’m well-grounded. My head and my heart are in the right place. I’m a survivor. I’m resilient. I’m a complex person because I’ve seen so much and have lost so much in life; it’s going to take a lot to shake me. I want people to know I’m a solid person. What you see is what you get.
Also on the media train this week is Chrissy’s favorite cast member, Kimbella Vanderhee. She gives a scathing interview to TheYBF.com in response to newcomer Erica’s Mena’sverbal media barrage regarding the knock-down-drag-out smack down between the two which was filmed for the show. Among the highlights, (to break it down Real Housewives of New Jersey style) Kimbella believes that Erica is a prostitution whore. Seriously, she says so in her first answer!
YBF: Erica Mena has been popping off about your big fight this week. She seemed to start going in on you as soon as you opened you mouth and it was your first REAL time meeting?! She says a lot ended up on the cutting floor and the show was shaped to make her look like the bad guy. Do you agree? What’s your side of the story?
I don’t agree. She is bi-polar. In fact, she is a crack whore and you will get to see it in the rest of the episodes brought to you by VH1! She is obviously embarrassed by her actions because she really got to see who “she” really is. She doesn’t know how to conduct herself as a lady and it showed. I basically I was attacked. I tried to stay classy but she tried my patience and crossed the line. It’s crazy to hear her blaming VH1 and not herself.Even the producers were dumbfounded when all this happened.
YBF: Did you know Erica before this?
No! What’s wrong with these women? What did I do to Chrissy or Erica for them to do this to me?
I don’t know her….and I haven’t heard anything great about her. The one thing I can tell you is that folks in the industry are saying before “Love & Hip Hop,” she was found stripping in the Valley and giving bl*w jobs for $200. So that is the career that me and VH1 are ruining?
YBF: There was a rumor that you and Erica were both–at the same time–sleeping with Emily B.’s baby’s daddy, rapper Fabolous, back in the day. And that’s supposedly why Erica has beef with you. She’s denied it. Can you confirm or deny?
I have no idea what anybody is talking about. I dated Fab three years ago…if she dated him three years ago….that’s fine.
YBF: Some people think she’s just purposely causing drama to get a permanent slot on the show and make a name for herself. Do you agree?
Yes. And she wants to talk about me doing stuff for free? She’s not a cast member, so she’s not even getting paid to be on the shows!
YBF: Obviously, you’re having a rough time getting along with the girls. You had a fight on your very first episode of this season with Chrissy. Why is that? And do you plan to do another season with these ladies?
I don’t know how to answer that. We had a lot of positive things go on but the producers chose to focus on the drama. I wish they would make it more even…a little bit of positive and a little drama. Why do they focus on the negativity? They show one aspect of my life, which is the drama I go through with females that I don’t know. It’s always a problem!
YBF: So for the record–WHO WON THE FIGHT?
I’m not about that. We shouldn’t be fighting because we are both grown women. I’m not going to condone fighting.
So ladies, what have we learned here? Well, as far as Chrissy concerned you won’t find what you’re not looking for… especially if what you’re not looking for are other ladies showing an interest in your man. Kimbella’s wonderful life lesson? Classy women don’t condone fighting — instead they talk on the Internet about their nemesis’ penchant for playing button-fly peek-a-boo for pennies. I hope y’all are taking notes!

That’s a start at least!

On last night’s Love & Hip Hop, it was all about talking. Blah. Blah. Blah. Everyone wants to discuss Kimbella and Erica’s fight. Yandy wants to talk about her issues with Chrissy which are weighing on her professional relationship with Jim and Chrissy just wants to cry about how Jim isn’t ready to commit.
We begin with Yandy Smith meeting up with Erica Mena about her brawl with Kimbella Vanderhee. Yandy can’t understand why Erica instigated such a hurtful confrontation. Yandy is so confused with Erica’s belief that her behavior was alright. Erica thinks that Kimbella talking about the pair being on the same level career-wise was enough to provoke her insults. Yandy sets her straight… Erica isn’t Yandy’s friend, she is nothing more than a potential client that proved she had a dirty mouth and ugly intentions.

The last season of Mob Wives ended with a throw down and from the previews it seems like there’s more of the same this time around. I can’t wait! Last night, the ladies of Staten Island dealt with near death experiences and a celebration of life party that quickly turns sour.
The episode begins with Renee Graziano heading to the plastic surgeon to get a full body makeover. She wants a flat stomach and new bum. It looks like it’s going to be A LOT of work. Once she’s on the operating table Renee begins to get nervous. Her son checks in with the receptionist to see how she’s doing, and the camera man is kind enough to show us a giant piece of skin and fat they have removed from Renee’s body. Something tells me this isn’t going to end well.

The ladies of Love & Hip Hop are no strangers to drama. In fact, the most recent episode highlighted a cat fight between Kimbella Vanderhee and video vixen Erica Mena.
Following the airing of the fist fight (which appeared largely instigated by Erica), Erica is now crying foul stating she was misrepresented on the show! Uh, uh. In an interview with Necole Bitchie, Erica claims VH1 edited her to be the bad guy and that the show is now ruining her modeling career because surely we all knew who she was before the show aired!
“My whole image in my career is now affected by this. I wanted them to pull this clip because I don’t want to show this side of me,” says Erica.
Erica adds: “[Kimbella] throwing that glass at me — like I said, whether cameras are there or not, how I reacted is just how I would react for any situation, whether I was on the show or not. Obviously my words hurt her so she decided to become a Basketball Wife and throw a glass at me so I had to be a Bronx b*tch and snuff her. It plays out how it plays out. I can’t really get into that point right now but that moment did backfire on me. There is the bad, there is the ugly, it is what it is.”
Meanwhile, TheYBF.com recently spilled the beans regarding a discussion with Yandy Smith who accounts for the brawl between her close friend and potential client. Yandy believes the drama is manufactured for the show by VH1. You don’t say! A portion of her interview is below.
YBF: Some people believe you’re an instigator, and you play like you have no idea what’s going on. And what we can’t understand is why does EVERYBODY want to fight Kimbella? Is she always the victim or do you call her out for her wrong doings as well?
Yandy: I know people have been calling me the Don King of reality tv, but what I want folks to know is that you only see 10 minutes out of a person’s 24 hour day. I am not all about money and I am a good friend. But this is a reality show…it’s for entertainment. These ladies and I are not really friends, but we are put in social interactions for entertainment purposes. And sometimes, things happen. The producers like to get a reaction because a good fight can lead to 3 million viewers.
As for Kimbella, she doesn’t play victim at all. But for whatever reason, a lot of people [on and off the show] hate on her. I have seen it with my own eyes….people want to pick on her. And now she is so used to people coming for her that she is a little sensitive. But once you break down that wall, she is a sweet girl. But she is not presented in the best light on this show for a number of reasons.
YBF: Any chance of you reconciling with Chrissy after the drama with Jimmy and Mama Jones and you dancing to Nancy’s song?
Yandy: I’ve said it before, I don’t have a problem with Chrissy. I never have. But I have always been close to Nancy. We have talked on the phone every day for the past 8 years. And I wasn’t trying to diss Chrissy when we danced to the song. But it’s like, if you are in the club and a song your favorite auntie made comes on…..you are going to dance! I was like, we in the club and they playing Nancy’s song! I didn’t think about how that made Chrissy feel…..but I did apologize.
TMZ is also reporting about Erica Mena’s latest scene, where she fought with Kimbella Vanderhee after stirring the pot to the point Kimbella had no recourse but to throw a drink her face. Kimbella says, according to the site, that Erica “wasn’t edited to look like the bad guy during their massive hair-pulling cat fight in this week’s episode — Erica WAS the bad guy… and VH1 just showed her for who she truly is.”
As you recall, Erica unleashed a verbal assault on Kimbella about her part in cheapening the video ladies’ persona. Erica believes that she was edited to look like the villain provoking the fight with her negative and aggressive conversation. Erica feels that VH1 portrayed her as a bully that hated Kimbella’s impact on the rap video world by working for less than deserved.
Kimbella is coming to the defense of VH1 after Erica cried foul that she was purposely made to look like the bad guy. Kimbella believes that what was shown on the episode was an accurate depiction of what actually happened, and the network did nothing to try to create more drama. She reveals, “VH1 didn’t do editing on anything with [Erica]. That’s who she is.” Kimbella insinuates Erica started the fight to boost her career as well as give herself relevance in the world of reality television.
Erica, playing by the P.R. playbook after the ladies’ knock-down-drag-out, promises the site, “I wish her well and much success in 2012. Have a happy new year!” Yeah. Because that is totally sincere!
WHAT DID YOU THINK OF ERICA AND YANDY’S INTERVIEWS? DO YOU THINK ERICA WAS EDITED TO BE THE BAD GUY? DO YOU BELIEVE YANDY IS INNOCENT OR A DRAMA STIRRER?
