Skinnygirl and Bethenny Ever After star Bethenny Frankel once again finds herself involved in a lawsuit over her multi (multi, multi!) million dollar baby. Although she sold her Skinnygirl Cocktail line to Jim Beam for a few bucks, Starcasm.com reports that she was recently deposed in a class action suit regarding the brand. The suit alleges that the drinks are made with rotgut tequila instead of the 100% blue agave tequila that the label boasts. Okay, sure.
Last night’s episode of Around the World in 80 Plates introduced the five remaining chefs to the Demon Chef in Hong Kong. He had them eating condoms and dog food. Think I’m kidding? Read on!
The chefs arrive in Hong Kong and Liz Garrett reads the course clue. They must find the Tian Tan Buddha to receive the next clue. John Vermiglio and Nookie Postal are hoping to team up with Nicole Lou so they can throw her under the bus later. The group rides on a giant gondola with a glass floor. Nookie is terrified of heights. Once they reach the Tian Tan Buddha, the chefs learn that the teams will remain the same, and Avery Pursell, as the only loner, will get to pick whether she wants to work with the boys or the girls. Having been with Nookie every step of the competition, she chooses the ladies. The teams must race to the top of what looks like a million stairs to find their next clue, so Nookie is clearly dead weight for John.
There are a lot of rumors swirling around Bachelorette land, and this week they have nothing to do with that overblown “love affair” between Emily Maynard’s front runner Arie Luyendyk Jr. and a producer from the show. Just like on the show, two media outlets are reporting that yes, Emily’s heart is, in fact, torn between two loves. However, they aren’t contestants…it’s her former fiance BachelorBrad Womack and the show’s host Chris Harrison. Oh drama!
HollywoodLife.com is reporting on a print article in this week’s Life & Style. The article claims Emily and Brad have been in contact since her season began, with a source close to Brad saying, “They call and text each other. They weren’t on good terms after their painful break-up, but Brad says they’re talking now, and it’s throwing him for a loop. It’s weird timing, but if anyone can understand what Emily is going through, it’s Brad.”
It seems like it’s finally happening for Kimmy Kakes. She has arrived. After months of trying, she is friends with Beyonce…or Bey as I’m sure Kimmie calls her. Beyonce has broken down and now actually likes Kim. I guess you could say she (metaphorically) put a ring on it. She likes her. She really, really likes her.
The duo was spotted this weekend watching their loves perform their Watch the Throne concert in Birmingham, England. The girls even, according to an US Weeklysource, venturing into the mosh pit. All this friendliness is new for the ladies. While Kim’s boyfriend Kanye West and Beyonce’s husband Jay-Z are close friends, Kim has allegedly been getting the cold shoulder from Beyonce for a while. An insider recently told The Sun, “The girls have never really seen eye-to-eye. It’s a shame because Jay-Z and Kanye are so close. Beyonce has always viewed Kim as a reality TV star who’s not earned her fortune with a specific talent.”
She’s ba-ack! Perhaps Paris Hilton was getting hives seeing how much and how often her former friend who loves marriages and sex tapes, who used to be much less famous, is in the headlines every nanosecond. Paris is now branching out…the heiress, reality star, designer, and party shower-upper can now add deejay to her impressive resume. Yes, in the past she has regaled us with some forgettable dance tunes, but Paris is determined to get back in the limelight.
Starcasm.com is reporting about her foray into the turn-tables, which took place at the Pop Music Festival in San Paulo, Brazil. Paris was in good company, with acts like Kelly Clarkson, J Lo, and Cobra Starship. The celebutante also spun her new single “Last Night” with rumored boyfriend Afrojack. Check out video below!
Last night’s Dance Moms saw another Payton/Leslie invasion, the moms standing up for one another and Abby sneaking Maddie into a second competition without telling the troupe. Geez!
Abby gets on the troupe for getting second place overall. While any other dance teacher would be thrilled, Abby reminds her girls that she is not any other dance teacher. Paige is on the bottom of the pyramid along with Brooke, who is still on probation. She blames the girls for not coming to them on their own to beg for their solos after mom Kelly pulled them from the competition. Is she serious? Nia is also on the bottom, although I’m not sure why. Chloe and Maddie are in the middle of the pyramid with MacKenzie taking the coveted top spot. Melissa is super proud. The competition this week will be held in Virginia, and it’s touted as the largest dance competition in the country.
In her Bravo blog, Vicki compares Tamra to Jeana Keough, writing, “I…believe Tamra should not have chosenHeather [Dubrow]’s party to replay her drama with the wine episode with Jeana. Remember why Tamra was mad at Jeana last year? To refresh your memory, it was because Jeana was getting involved in Tamra and Simon’s marriage and “butting in.” Hmmm. . .isn’t that what she has been doing with Brooks and I?”
“Innnnnn West Philadelphia, born and raised, with the Mob Wives is how I spent most of my days…” Wait what? Mob Wives…Philadelphia? Isn’t enough, enough? Unless Will Smith wants to be a part of this new franchise, I think I’m done with any and all things mob related…at least where reality TV is concerned. I may be out of luck as the New York Daily News is reporting that Alicia DiMichele of South Jersey has been approached about starring in a Mob Wives spin-off set in Philadelphia.
Alicia is married to gangster Edward Graofalo who has ties to the Colombo crime family. She even has a federal conviction herself. Legit! She lives fifteen minutes outside of downtown Philly, raising the couple’s three kids while her husband serves his time in federal prison. Her lawyer reveals,“Alicia DiMichele has been contacted by a number of media outlets. She is focused on taking care of her children and keeping her family together.”
