In light of the domestic violence charges in the very brief wedding of Basketball Wives‘ stars Evelyn Lozada and Chad Ochocinco Johnson, Evelyn has cancelled all her upcoming publicity engagements. I can’t say I blame her. When the news of Chad’s abuse arrest became public, Evelyn filed for divorce, the couple’s wedding spin-off Ev & Ocho was pulled by VH1, and Chad was fired from the Dolphins. Probably not Chad’s best week, I’d say. What a d-bag.
The second half of Evelyn’s scheduled book tour to promote The Wives Association: Inner Circle has been put on hold, as well as several club public appearances. Evelyn will no longer be appearing alongside RHONJ‘s Teresa Giudice at a September book expo. Sidebar, can you imagine those two ladies together? Teresa flipping tables and Evelyn hurling bottles of Fabellini? Terrifying!
Last night was the season finale of Mob Wives Chicago, and we finally had some questions answered and saw at least some of the women having fun together. It’s about time, that’s for sure!
Pia Rizza heads to Renee Fecarotta Russo‘s apartment to discuss her very productive and positive meeting with Nora Schweihs . Pia reveals that Nora ran away as soon as they began to talk, and she is no longer a thought in Pia’s mind. Renee is all “duh.” I know middle schoolers with better vocabulary. Renee shares with Pia her screaming match with Giana’s father. She is worried that when Giana finds out she yelled at her father, it will push her daughter even farther away from her. Renee also talks about her weekend getaway with Dave. While it was fun, she isn’t sure what it actually accomplished to help their relationship. Pia advises her to focus on Giana and put Dave on the back burner.
It was a Big Ang birthday last night! Ang planned a surprise shindig for her sister Janine, but both she and pal Linda celebrate their big days during the same week.
Linda comes to visit Ang’s chest at the Drunken Monkey. Anthony arrives with his new motorcycle. Linda manages to make sitting on a motorcycle pornographic. Of course she does. Ang is terrified at the thought of riding a motorcycle…something tells me that is foreshadowing. Later, Ang has her friends over to enjoy some bubbly and a very dirty pool. Kilo is breathing all over Lil’ Jen. Ang hates shoveling leaves out of the water, and she decides she’s going to get herself a pool boy for her birthday. He can fill her champagne glass, massage her head, and fetch her towels. No mention of cleaning the pool though…
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.
