The Bachelor has already established their villain in Courtney Robertson, a brunette who appears to have not received the memo that no one says “winning” anymore. In a new report by Life & Style magazine, it’s revealed that she’s not exactly the lonely date-less girl she has painted herself out to be in her conversations with Ben Flajnik.

In fact, she had a serious boyfriend whom she dumped to appear on the show! The report’s source reveals “She was dating photographer Cavan Clark for months. Then one day she just stopped calling. And they were so serious. Even talking marriage. He was about to propose.”

The source claims that the callous Courtney even filmed her Bachelor spots in a dress her boyfriend got her as well as a bicycle, which Cavan discovered by watching TV and catching his former beloved.

Ben is also getting a glimpse into Courtney’s true nature by watching the episodes along with the rest of us and on his People.com blog, says he didn’t know what she was doing when she wasn’t trapping him in her web:

“One thing I was completely oblivious to was Courtney causing such a stir with the other women. I thought that she was just making the most of her moments with me.

It’s really hard to not let your mind get caught up in “Do I really know that this person is being sincere?” so I tried to give everyone the benefit of the doubt. I tried not to go into this experience with the fear that I was getting played, but I will say that if I let myself go there, it’s a common fear in any relationship. Am I seeing the real side to this person?”

In his blog, Ben appears frustrated he is not getting the complete story and has to rely on himself:

“It’s really hard to navigate this process, especially when I don’t see what is going on between the ladies when I’m not in the room. But even though there was drama amongst the women, I decided to rely on my own intuitions and make up my mind for myself.”

Whether or not Ben knows about Courtney‘s true personality and serious boyfriend, it’s clear he’s smitten with her charms, on full display in the following clip where the two go skinny dipping. It’s so romantic with the two of them, the camera crew, producers, and the knowledge everyone you’ve ever known will soon be watching you naked with blocks on your private parts. It’s every girl’s dream.

Check out the below preview clip, where Courtney says she’s “winning” and explains her rationale for asking him to swim nude (and make out) with her: “It’s not every day that you’re in Puerto Rico with a guy that you like. You only live once. I’m hoping he finds me irresistible.”

A new episode of The Bachelor airs tonight on ABC at 8/7c.

Top Chef Season 9

Previously on Top Chef: Beverly gets sent home and Charlize Theron was awesome and beautiful.

We return to Top Chef:Texas with the chefs in the stew room going over Beverly‘s departure. Grayson talking-heads that she’ll miss her while the other chefs are either hiding their feelings or just don’t seem to care.

All of a sudden an angel walks in, a.k.a. Charlize Theron, and she thanks the chefs and calls herself a “huge nerd.” No, Charlize, people currently on their 98th consecutive hour of playing Skyrim while on a Mountain Dew drip are huge nerds. You are a pretty actress.

With the stew room properly blessed, we move on to the rest of the episode and the quick fire challenge, this time being judged by Padma, Emeril Lagasse and Cat Cora, who also has a new Bravo show coming up soon, Around The World In 80 Plates (Bravo doing cross-promotion, SHOCKING!!)

Best known for her on-again, off-again relationship with co-star Ronnie, Jersey Shore‘s Sammi Sweetheart also wants the world to know she’s just a regular gal. With a lot of money from a reality show. And a perfume. You know, like us normal girls.

In an interview with Naughty But Nice Rob, Sammi says that despite the show’s massive success she is still the same, proclaiming “I am just myself and I like being me. I am still doing the same things that I was doing prior to the show. I am just me.”

When asked about how her more famous co-stars were doing, she kept it nice: “I don’t know if the show changed them. I think they look fabulous and they are doing great.”

Of her post-show plans, Sammi said she wanted most to return to school and finish her degree, telling Rob she has “one semester left.” She is quick to point out that despite their on-screen antics, there are brains amongst the crew: “What’s cool is Vinny has his degree, but most of us went to college, even though no one knows that. We all are very smart in our own way.”

While I don’t think we’ll be seeing any of the Jersey Shore discussing economic policy over shots any time soon, there is something to Sammi’s statement that the gang certainly has smarts, especially when it comes to self-promotion. Sammi also revealed that Snooki went to college though it’s safe to assume she didn’t quite finish.

For example, the female cast members have all started to post no-makeup photos following the success of Sammi’s “makeunder” from xoJane.com. Snooki followed with her own no-makeup pics and now Deena Cortese has joined in, posting the following au naturel photos to her Twitter account this week. Those photos are below!

Snooki on the other hand is back to her usual and posted a few new bikini photos, hinting these might go on the cover of her new book. (Yes, Snooki is releasing another literary tome for the masses!) Those pics are also below!

A new episode of the Jersey Shore airs tonight on MTV (10/9c).

In the approximately five billion years it has taken to shoot the re-tooled fifth season of Real Housewives of New York, the ladies get to go on yet another Bravo-sponsored vacation.

If you recall, earlier reports leaked that the gals had taken a trip to London in addition to a trip to South Beach which gifted us these photos. Now that it’s winter, the cast headed down to St. Barts.

New cast members Heather Thomson and Carole Radziwill decided to show off their smoking hot figures while veterans Sonja Morgan, Luann de Lesseps and Ramona Singer sat around getting drunk and being judgey (so, like any normal day on the RHONY set). I’m sure personal trainers are so proud of them in this moment. Check out the photos of them below!

Meanwhile, the NY Post wrote a scathing report about newbie Carole. According to The Post, Carole, who is related to the Kennedys by marriage, is failing to bring any class to the show. The report states that while filming in St. Barts, Carole was was spotted partying with her costars – Ramona, Sonja, LuAnn and others — at Le Ti, a cabaret-themed night.

A source revealed, “Le Ti has a dress-up shop with items to suit every fetish. By the end of the night, all the housewives were in tiny red pirate outfits with Jack Sparrow hats, and exposed midriffs gyrating on the dance floor.”

The source continues of Caroline, who has won three Emmys for her writing: “It’s sad to see Carole, a journalist, former ABC news producer and whose husband [Prince Anthony Radziwill] was the cousin of John F. Kennedy Jr., stooping to this level. She must really need the money.”

Back in New York, former failed housewife Cindy Barshop of the Vajazzling Barshops decided to introduce yet another product to the market that no one needed: fur merkins for your lady bits, available at her Completely Bare spa in New York. In case you get cold from all those Brazilian waxes. Just in time for Valentine’s Day, you can add a little something different to your nether regions for two Benjamins.

The ‘Foxy Bikini’ is available at $225 and the ‘Carnivale’ for $195. According to the Completely Bare website, both of these services can also be added on to your laser hair removal or waxing appointment. It seems to me you can skip the wax altogether and achieve the same effect. Am I right, ladies?

Cindy is getting some serious backlash from animal rights group PETA on the merkins which are made from real fur and calls the merkins “outright sleazy, and downright cruel.” Cindy responded by saying it is her right to stage a lame publicity stunt for her businesses, “wear fur down there” and hopes PETA will “respect that.”

Also below are photos of Cindy’s fur merkins!

It’s nice to see that Teen Mom 2 professional train wreck Jenelle Evans can still have some loyalty towards ex-boyfriend Kieffer Delp, currently in jail for violating his probation and slated to be released on March 15.

According to a recent report by Reality Weekly, Jenelle has been making the three hour drive to go visit him and has even been sending him care packages! As the report puts it, “She loves Kieffer as much as she loves partying.” How romantic!

Jenelle, no stranger to jail herself, has been busy with new man, Gary Head, which apparently is making Kieffer crazy. “Now that she has a new boyfriend, he’s become even more obsessed. He’s actually been writing her love letters! He makes her feel like he needs her, that she’s the only one who can save him.” If Jenelle’s strategy was to keep Kieffer on lock while still getting attention from the outside, she definitely succeeded.

Keiffer is scheduled for a release from jail in two months. “He’s free on March 15, 2012 — as long as he stops swearing and getting in trouble in jail,” says a source.

PHOTOS – TEEN MOM LEAH MESSER CAUGHT SMOKING WHILE PREGNANT

In other Teen Mom 2 relationship news, Radar magazine is reporting that Kailyn Lowry may be bisexual! “Kailyn was with a girl named Shelby… for about two years.” says Star’s source, and goes on to say that Kailyn was in another lady relationship with school mate Gigi Hanna.

The source has some pretty intimate details of Kailyn’s relationship with Gigi, explaining that “They were both seeing guys, [but] would make out and Gigi would sleep in her bed sometimes. … Kail thinks they’ll both end up with a guy, but they’ll always be best friends.”

Gigi was kind enough to speak with the press and explains their friendship with benefits: “We became close again and promised to never leave each other; we moved in together. We know our boundaries.”

If you’re curious what Kailyn’s ex (and father of her child) Jo Rivera thought about all this, you’ll be surprised to know he didn’t seem to mind, with both women! The source explains, “Jo knew about Kail’s relationship with that girl [Shelby]. He thought it was a phase. Kail cheated on Jo with Gigi, but he knew and didn’t care.”

Photos of Kailyn and Gigi are below! Plus some are now wondering why Kailyn’s bisexuality has never been addressed on the show.

Shawntel Newton

Being an actual contestant on The Bachelor is simply not humiliating enough for some folks. Others have to extend their .5 seconds of fame and come back to the show, via their spin-offs, or if you’re Shawntel Newton, you can return in a surprise visit.

In an interview with People, Shawntel explains what the hell she was doing there as well as her very special connection via sexting (er, I mean, “Twitter fling”) to current bachelor Ben Flajnik. Plus, how she dealt with the abuse backlash she received from the other contestants!

On why she decided to meet Ben on the show, instead of meeting him for a drink like a normal person:

“I didn’t want to go back on national television, but I wanted to at least meet Ben in person. This was the only chance I had. [He could] be engaged in a couple of months. It was worth trying. It wasn’t like I was in love with this guy, but I thought there could be something … I didn’t think anyone was in love yet so I didn’t think I was stepping on too many toes.”

On some of the not-so-nice reactions she received from the actual contestants:

I knew I was walking into a lion’s den. I expected going in to have the girls a little confused and upset with me. … Insecurities came out and nothing could have prepared me [for] the reaction [I got]. Hearing girls saying I’m uglier in person and have big thighs and calling me dumpster trash and a b—- – was intense. I was hurt. Jaclyn told me she wanted to punch [me] in the face. Courtney was the most harsh. When I got sent home, she laughed and said, “Sayonara.” Defending myself for two hours was exhausting. A girl can only take so much. I snuck off to the bathroom and I cried.

On her very intimate Twitter relationship with Ben:

I made it very clear on Twitter I had a crush on him and wanted to get to know him [during] Ashley’s season. He sent me a private message and we exchanged numbers. We [said] we should meet in person but he couldn’t be seen in public. It never happened.

On how she thought her surprise visit would do:

I was very confident walking in, because I knew he felt something for me, too. I really thought he would keep me and at least take me on a date to see if there was something. I would have liked that a whole lot better than talking to him for two minutes, getting picked on and then being sent home.

On who’s wearing the pants on the Bachelor set:

I think the biggest influence [on his decision] was Courtney. She basically gave him an ultimatum – “If you keep Shawntel, I’m out” – and he’s making it clear he’s head over heels for her. I think he ends up choosing her.

In other news, Bravo’s own Andy Cohen also made a shocking revelation when he told the HollywoodLife he was once approached to be The Bachelor!

“I got a call once years ago before anybody knew who I was,” Andy revealed. “My picture was in W magazine, and the producers of The Bachelor called. They were calling to see if I would ever be interested in going through the casting process.”

Andy err of course turned ABC down for obvious reasons. “I said, ‘You are barking up the wrong tree,’” he stated. “‘Unless The Bachelor is going in a different direction …”

Real Housewives of Atlanta star Kandi Burruss took to her Kandi Koated Nights Ustream show to fight back against Nene Leakes’ accusations that she is a “hater” and “fake.”

Although, to be honest, Nene calls everyone in her life both a fake and a hater, so Kandi could have just walked away. Nene is probably calling some Starbucks Batista a “hater” right now, in between throwing wads of dollar bills up in the air.

The conflict appears to have come from the trip Nene, Kandi and Cynthia took at the beginning of the season to Miami (the one where Nene made fun of Kandi’s thighs in her talking head interview). Kandi explains why she was even on the trip to begin with: “Let me tell y’all something about her fake a*s.” Kandi adds, “I didn’t even really want to go on that trip. The only reason why I was even invited on that trip is because I was the only one that was even on speaking terms with her during that time other than Cynthia.”

After the trip, Kandi made a comment to the other housewives women at Kim’s birthday party making fun of Nene’s new found wealth and her constant reminders that she was “rich.”

As to why Nene was so offended (probably because she’s not rich at all), Kandi is similarly confused:”Name something else I said. Even when I was with her in Miami, I made a joke about the being rich thing.”

What was most interesting about Kandi’s comments is that she herself tried to clear the air about the trip in her Bravo blog, but her efforts were thwarted by the powers that be, who deleted Kandi’s explanations for her behavior.

She says, “I said all this in my blog, and then [Bravo] edited my damn blog. So I told them, I said, ‘I’m not blogging no more.’” True to her word, Kandi has not posted a blog since November 15.

In any case, Nene and Kandi will never be best friends, or even close friends. She says, “”She don’t call me. I don’t talk to her outside of the show.” Even during events the ladies are at for filming purposes, Nene stays away: “Even when all of us are together at certain events, half the time, she don’t even speak to me!”

TELL US: ARE YOU ON KANDI OR NENE’S SIDE? DO YOU THINK NENE WILL HAVE ANY FRIENDS LEFT IN ATLANTA? WHY IS NENE SO OBSESSED WITH HER HATERS?


Previously on Top Chef: Beverly wins Restaurant Wars and Ty is eliminated. Oh noes!

We rejoin the chefs who are still in the stew room with Sarah still, well stewing about Beverly’s win. In a very poorly edited scene, we see Tom come in and announce that the gang is heading back to San Antonio, mixed in with Sarah gasping. That, mixed in with Padma‘s strange voice-over at the opening makes me think the show is being edited on iMovie on someone’s Macbook. Get it together!

The chefs go home in cars separated by gender and Lindsay is still complaining that her job during Restaurant Wars was hard and that “others” (i.e. Beverly) dropped the ball except they kind of didn’t. Winning the challenge is the opposite of dropping the ball.

Eventually, we land back at the kitchen. Hottie and Top Chef semi-regular Eric Ripert is back! The chefs spy a conveyor belt in the back of the kitchen and Ed, master of stating the obvious, says this is going to suck. Chef Ripert adorably reads his lines and Padma lets us in on the quickfire challenge: they must make a “sophisticated dish” using three items from the conveyor belt. But, the longer they wait to get their three items, the less time they will have to cook. See? It’s a riddle. The winner gets immunity.
