Amber Portwood is having one heckuva year! In the latest drama to plague the Teen Mom star she is back in an Indiana jail after numerous probation violations. Oh dear…
Amber was issued an arrest warrant yesterday for an unknown issue, although it is suspected her arrest is related to failure to comply with the terms of her probation — including staying sober in public. TMZ is reporting that pending a judge’s assessment Amber could land up to two-years in jail for the violations!
Amber’s brother tells E! Online that after his sister missed her most recent probation hearing, authorities went to her house. During the visit, cops went through Amber’s purse and discovered some “old pills” that Amber could not show proof of prescription for. She was then arrested and put in jail.
Following the warrant Amber was booked in Madison County Jail in Indiana, where she is expected to stay through the holidays unless she can post bail. Luckily her salary from MTV should be sufficient! Amber is scheduled to appear in front of a judge, January 13. Her booking photo is below.
This is a disappointing turn of events for Amber who recently admitted to suffering from and receiving treatment for bi-polar disorder and claimed things are looking up for her. Hopefully, Amber will be able to straighten her life out for the sake of Leah.
In other Teen Mom news it’s unfortunately nothing positive. Star Magazine is reporting that Jenelle Evans has no desire to regain full custody of her two-year-old son, Jace. Despite putting some of her legal problems behind her and rebuilding her life, a friend tells the magazine that she believes Jenelle is fine with her mother Barbara Evans retaining at least partial custody and that Jenelle may never be a full-time mom! “I don’t think Jenelle will ever get full custody of Jace. I don’t even think it hurts her,” the family friend reveals.
“Years down the road, when Jenelle might have her life together, it’ll be weird for them to just start living on their own. It’s sad because he’s so happy when he’s with her,” the friend continued, adding that Jenelle is “great with Jace.”
Apparently part of the problem for Jenelle is the Teen Mom 2 star, who signed over custody to her mother following a tumultuous year which included an arrest and a stint in rehab, has gone boy-crazy since her mother stepped in. “Jenelle is obsessed with male attention,” the source discloses “She wants whatever she can get.” #priorities
“It’s not Jace’s fault he was born to Jenelle,” the source — who believes Jace is safer with Barabara — continues, “Barbara didn’t do this for Jenelle; she did it for Jace.” Hopefully Jenelle will realize the importance of motherhood and consider how much her son needs her.
ARE YOU SURPRISED AMBER WAS ARRESTED? DID THE JUDGE MAKE THE RIGHT CHOICE? SHOULD JENELLE BE MORE CONCERNED WITH GETTING HER SON BACK?

Kim Zolciak has made a lot of changes since the first seasons of Real Housewives of Atlanta. Hearkening back to the good ol’ days before she was NeNe Leakes‘ mortal enemy, married instead of a mistress, chain smoking and merely a wannabe singer, it’s shocking how much things have changed for the beweaved one. Well, maybe the wannabe singer part hasn’t changed — she still wants to be able to sing, but instead has settled for merely recording some seriously Autotuned pop songs. Ahhh… Kim what must it be like to be you?
Kim spent some time in Chicago this weekend with her new hubs Kroy Biermann and speaking to the Windy City Times, she talks about all the changes that have happened in her life.
Kim is apparently still annoyed over the “definite drama” at her babyshower because of co-star Cynthia Bailey and is still a little bit pissed about Peter Thomas‘ comments to Uptown Magazine. “I didn’t lose anything at the end of the day because Peter and Cynthia didn’t show up until 15 minutes before it was over, so it wasn’t that big of a deal. It was rude and uncalled for, you know what I am saying?”
“I don’t even know Peter. I don’t spend a lot of time with Cynthia and only know the stories that I hear. Everyone has an opinion but if you don’t have something nice to say then don’t say it at all kind of thing, especially when it is about your wife’s cast members…” Oh the travesties of being a Housewife — you get talked about all the time.
Kim would rather focus on her fabulous married life, calling it “fantastic;” and the happy couple is finally settling into things after their lavish wedding. Kim explains they are considering her trip to Chicago for an appearance a “little honeymoon.” ” I haven’t had the time to enjoy because I have been working a lot. I am happy, and Kroy is such a great guy.”
And Kim is very excited about her new spin-off Don’t Be Tardy For The Wedding, which chronicles preparing for her 11-11-11 nuptials, but she can’t give away any details.
Adding that she is so grateful she decided to go and support Sheree Whitfield‘s charity event last season where she met Kroy. “I met him on the show last year for real,” Kim explains. “I always say I am so grateful. I didn’t even want to go to that even that day and had a lot going on then. I went to support Shereé and never would have thought in a million years that I would have met my husband there.”
Speaking of NeNe, her former bestie, Kim is officially over it. “I am at a different place in my life. I wish her well and much success. I am very focused on my family and my husband. That is what I have going on, and I don’t have time for the negativity anymore or the drama.”
Kim is giving credit where credit is due and admitting that NeNe is the reason she was casted on Housewives. “She is the one that introduced me to the producers or what have you,” Kim reveals. “I will always be thankful for that. It has been an incredible journey over all of these years. But she has some anger issues that she needs to deal with…”
In other NeNe news, Tamara Tattles is reporting that the rowdy one, who is currently filming a guest spot on hit TV show Glee, may land a permanent role on series. Then, she’ll be cashing Fox checks!
NeNe apparently filmed a second episode for the series last week, slated to be a Michael Jackson Tribute episode and proving that she is actually in the episodes, NeNe is included in the upcoming Glee promo. NeNe’s role will be that of swim teacher Roz Washington and apparently she is having so much fun filming in LA that she may be heading back there following the cast-wide Christmas break to continue filming more episodes! Something tells me acting might be a natural segue for the overly dramatic Ms. Leakes!
Her first Glee episode is slated to air on January 17, 2012. Her second episode will be airing on Jan 24th. A photo of The Neen on set is below.
Finally, a new episode of RHOA airs tonight on Bravo and Phaedra and Sheree face off over Sheree’s supposed legal representation by Ms. Parks. Good thing Phaedra isn’t really her lawyer! Also on tonight’s episode, Kim and her family move into their new dream house and Cynthia hosts her grand opening for The Bailey Agency, which leads to Kim and NeNe being in the same place at the same time for the first time this season.
A preview clip of the new episode is below in which Sheree confronts Phaedra over her courtroom drama! RHOA airs tonight on Bravo at 9/1oc.
THOUGHTS ON KIM’S INTERVIEW? ARE YOU HAPPY FOR ALL THE CHANGES KIM HAS MADE IN HER LIFE OR DO YOU WISH SHE AND NENE WERE STILL FRIENDS? WILL YOU BE WATCHING NENE ON GLEE?

Sheree Whitfield‘s custody case is the hot story to keep her relevant this season on Real Housewives of Atlanta. Sheree is accusing her ex-husband, retired NFL player Bob Whitfield (a.k.a. Head Butt Bob), of refusing to pay child support and owing hundreds of thousands in back child support over four years. Many have found it odd that Bob would allow his deadbeat dad behavior to be flaunted on national television and, as is always the case, there seems to be much, much more to the story than meets the eye!
On the surface Sheree’s case seems cut and dry so her attorney, friend and co-star Phaedra Parks opted to take on the case pro-bono. When Phaedra suggested Sheree simply alert the authorities to Bob’s negligence, Sheree looked squeamish and immediately vetoed that idea, leaving many — including her attorney — perplexed. Sheree claimed she would not feel right putting the father of her children in jail. But is that really the reason she didn’t want Bob to hear that “clank-clank”?
Interestingly, last episode Phaedra decided to charge Sheree a $5000 retainer fee, claiming that her case became more challenging which would necessitate a lot more work on her part. Also interesting, Bob filed a motion against Sheree placing her in contempt for allegedly stealing furniture that was granted to him in the divorce decree. And that is just the tippity, tip, tip of the iceberg!
There has looong been the rumor that Sheree basically stripped the mansion she and Bob resided in during their marriage of all it’s fixtures after Bob allowed it to fall into foreclosure and Sheree plus children were evicted. Tamara Tattles gave an in-depth report of the situation on her blog which, is the first red flag in the complicated case of Sheree Whitfield vs. Bob Whitfield and the mystery of the child support case.
First, in an odd sequence of information that doesn’t add up, StraightFromTheA discovered that Phaedra is no longer representing Sheree according to the Fulton County Court Modification documents. Was it because she couldn’t afford her rates? The defendant’s lawyer is clearly listed as Joy Nicol Hanyard. The real question is did Phaedra ever represent Sheree or was that added for dramatic purposes? Tamara Tattles has already alerted us that the presiding judge seen on last week’s episode of RHOA is not the actual judge whose courtroom was featured (nor the judge listed on this document). A copy of that document is below.
StraightFromTheA, an Atlanta blog known for getting the scoop, did more digging and found that the case between Sheree and Bob is absolutely 100% real and not created for RHOA — however the case that we are seeing played out on TV is very different than the behind the scenes situation. Apparently Bob is tired of being depicted as the miscreant father and first-rate a-hole. Speaking to the blog he is giving his side of the story!
Calling the situation a “hot mess”; he also takes issue with Phaedra claiming he looked a “hot mess” in court (is that the adjective of the week?)! Bob claims that ugly wrinkled shirt he wore in the court scene was actually a $300 Robert Graham shirt and he was not trying to look like a “hobo” but it was too hot for a suit and his iron was “so raggedy.” Yes, this man went to Stanford.
Bob also admits that sticking out his tongue makes him look like such a “smug bastard” and he also admits that he does, in fact, “know people” at the court as Sheree said. As for Sheree, Bob reveals, she doesn’t know “when the truth starts and when the lie begins.” He also comments on Chateau Thelma Sheree, wondering why she has that “mound of dirt.” The conversation is a little difficult to decipher, but if you don’t mind Bob’s filthy mouth, it’s worth a listen!
So what is the truth behind all the acrimony and the reason why Bob is refusing to pay his ex-wife court-ordered child support? According to MediaTakeOut, Sheree actually owes Bob a butt load of dollars! After sifting through some court documents, here’s what they discovered: “When Sheree and Bob got divorced, the court ordered them to SELL the house, split the proceeds. And for Bob to give Sheree $425K in additional cash. Bob would pay her $25K up front, and the other $400K once they sold the house. Well Sheree TRICKED Bob, and asked him if he could give her the $400K early, so that she could get a home for their children.”
“And after Bob gave her the money, Sheree filed MULTIPLE lawsuits, and refused to leave the house or pay the mortgage. Eventually the bank foreclosed on the house, and Bob lost ALL the equity he had in the home.” Bob took Sheree to court over the matter and Sheree was “admonished,” yet not charge according to the court documents. Perhaps this is why she lost all of her appeals for spousal support? Sheree never paid Bob back for the money lost as a result of her refusal to honor the agreement. And that clears up why the house fell into foreclosure.
Essentially if Sheree attempts to take Bob to court for the lost child support, he can counter-sue for all the money he is owed. A copy of the court documents obtained by MediaTakeOut are below. Also, below is a photo of the home which Sheree was shown living in on the first and second season of RHOA.
Perhaps this is the real reason Sheree is not getting child support! Sheree has not commented on the reality of her situation on Twitter or her Bravo Blog!
THOUGHTS ON THE DETAILS REGARDING SHEREE’S LEGAL SITUATION? IS BOB RIGHT TO REFUSE TO PAY CHILD SUPPORT IN LIGHT OF ALL THE MONEY SHE ALLEGEDLY OWES HIM?

Jill Zarin loves her some media attention! Nary a day goes by without Jill getting some press or giving an interview. And sure she is spreading the word about Skweeze Couture, but for someone who claims to be over her appearance on Real Housewives of New York she has a difficult time not talking about it! I guess it is her claim to fame…
In the latest, Jill spoke to Rob Shuter via his HDNet show Naught But Nice With Rob and talked about how she’s changed since leaving the show. “Whatever I say no one will believe me, but I never lie. I am so happy to be off that show,” Jill starts off by saying, adding that she’s sad to lose her paycheck!
As to what’s different now that she is no longer beholden to Bravo, Jill insists she’s back to being “me”. “I got my happy back,” she explains. “I didn’t realize it when I was in it, but I think I became like a monster to the people around me because I was under so much stress.”
Jill goes on to describe the filming process as leaving the ladies “strung out,” due to stress. “It just takes so much energy; this manipulation, of trying to figure out whose team you’re on and who’s your friend and who’s your enemy. It just sucks up all the air in the room,” Jill elaborates.
To illustrate how happy she is, Jill explains that at a recent dinner party for her birthday (which was attended by maybe “life-long” friend Kelly Bensimon) her guests kept telling Jill how much she’s “changed,” with her friends mentioning that she was calm and relaxed. Former cast mate LuAnn de Lesseps was also due to attend Jill’s birthday, but arrived too late because of a scheduled filming.
Jill also mentioned her plans to film her own reality show, claiming it will be filled with less drama! But the question is will there be any takers?
“There won’t be any puppeteers pulling strings to make fights, and there won’t be jealousy,” explained Jill. “There wont be those kinds of things that change who people are. I just really want to do my own thing. I just really want to be with my family. I had a lot of anxiety. I had no control and I’m a little bit of a control freak.”
While the world awaits the verdict on whether any network will pick up Jill’s proposed show, she will be returning to TV on Dec. 25, as a judge on “Iron Chef” alongside Art Smith.
In other RHONY news, Jill may not miss being part of the cast but it seems her former cast mates certainly miss her, surprisingly. “It’s different. The girls are different so it’s a totally different experience,” LuAnn said, speaking to HollywoodLife. ”I always miss the girls. We worked a long time together. You miss people you’re comfortable with.”
Ramona Singer agreed, commenting: “It’s sad not to have all the girls that I grew up on the show with. We all did this together. But change can be good.” Admitting that she misses fellow blonde Alex McCord the most, Ramona promised the upcoming season will still be good! While she isn’t revealing who’s in and who’s out as far as casting, saying: “We’re not allowed to talk about the new girls,” Ramona promises, “It’s going to be a great show [though].”

DO YOU BELIEVE THAT JILL IS HAPPY TO BE AWAY FROM RHONY? ARE YOU SURPRISED THAT SHE ADMITTED THE SHOW TURNED HER INTO A MONSTER? DO YOU THINK RAMONA AND LUANN REALLY MISS THEIR FORMER CO-STARS?
In response to The Situation‘s lawsuit against Abercrombie & Fitch, the company apparently believes they’ve done nothing wrong and The Situation has no grounds to sue them after they supposedly banned him from wearing their clothes and then referenced his famous phrases on two of their t-shirts! The company is accusing The Situation of having both a baseless lawsuit and of being unable to take a joke. Seriously.
The Situation filed a lawsuit against the company for knocking off slogans he claims he trademarked. The trademarks in question G.T.L and The Situation, of course!
Abercrombie & Fitch now denies the Jersey Shore star has any grounds to sue them “because he doesn’t technically own the trademarks in question… he only applied for them.” According to TMZ, A&F claims The Situation’s application for Gym Tan Laundry has been “suspended” because MTV “already owns ‘Gym Tanning Laundry,’ and the US Patent & Trademark Office thinks they’re too similar.” Oh my…
Despite the trademark issues, Abercrombie also believes that producing the shirts in question is actually protected under a law that “allows parody as part of free speech.” Not only that they were meant to be a joke and The Situation should get a sense of humor! The Situation has yet to comment on Abercrombie’s claims.
In other Jersey Shore news Snooki has been on a diet! And girl looks good! Revealing her new bikini body on Twitter, Snooki has been dieting and exercising diligently — and it has paid off. “So happy I’m at my goal weight I was when I was in high school! Feelin fit is amazing and can’t wait to tone up hardcore,” Snooki tweeted. And to complete her total transformation, Snooki asked Santa for a pair of “knockers” like JWoww‘s! Photos of a bikini clad Snooki are below.

With The Bachelor premiering next month, Ben Flajnik is spilling some details about his upcoming season and claiming that actress Jennifer Love Hewitt wanted to take him off the market before ABC had the chance!
Us Weekly confirms that Ben went on one date with the 32-year-old actress before signing on to become The Bachelor. A witness spotted the pair on an awkward seeming “first date” at Lion’s Pub in San Francisco this August. “It seemed like a first date, but he wasn’t overly affectionate,” the witness reported, adding that Jennifer seemed very interested in Ben! “As the bar started to close she grabbed his hand and marched outside.”
Ben confirms that Jennifer initiated everything! “She had reached out to me and wanted to come up to the winery so she did with some friends,” Ben explained.
“She’s a nice girl, but… after this is all said and done, I want to go back to Northern California to my normal life,” he disclosed. “Ending up with a Hollywood celebrity is not something I ever imagined doing.” Well, good thing he had 25 more eligible bachelorettes to choose from! Other reports have also claimed Ben thought Jennifer was a little cray-cray!
Speaking of the upcoming season, Ben reveals he is happy he participated in the show. Now that filming has completed Ben is happily settling into his life post-reality TV, but did he find love? Zap2It covered a recent press conference Ben did to advertise the new season and he’s not giving away any details!
“I’m happy with my decision in doing the show. Another good experience, another cathartic, therapeutic adventure… I can’t tell you [if I'm happy with the outcome]. I’m happy with the experience, I’m happy I decided to become the bachelor,” Ben divulged. “I have no regrets about anything that I did. I feel like my decisions were well thought out and I’ll leave it at that.”
“When that first limo pulled up, sheer panic and terror set in. It took the first few ladies for me to kind of settle in. Your heart is racing, it’s nerve-wracking on both sides,” Ben said, describing the initial meet-n-greet with the women.
After going through the process himself, Ben is empathetic to the choice his former love Ashley Hebert faced and understands being torn between two people. “You’re obviously trying to figure out a lot of things along the way and it’s a difficult situation. Easily the hardest thing I’ve had to do in my entire life,” Ben recounted. “You’re always thinking about each individual relationship, where it’s going, where it’s not going. It’s difficult.”
While we’re all wondering if Ben will be walking down the aisle, Bachelor host Chris Harrison isn’t giving anything away either only commenting that Ben is “in the right place to find love.”

It seems that Sherri and her husband were attending a party in New Jersey and who should show up but Melissa, hauling with her a buncha drama. Le sigh. And if you are wondering what kind of people get into an argument at a Christmas party, look no further than the hot-tempered ladies of RHONJ!
Sherri, rightfully annoyed that a peaceful evening was ruined by squabbling twelve-year-olds women, took to Twitter to complain about the nonsense. “Why am I at a party in Jersey with Sal & one of the New Jersey Housewives gets into an altercation w someone! This is surreal & a #hotmess,” Sherri admonished, via Twitter. Sherri initially believed Teresa was the hot mess in question, but Teresa immediately set her straight, Tweeting: “And no I was NOT at the Jersey party w/ @SherriEShepherd yest. I was in NYC w/my kids. She’s got her hot mess NJHousewives mixed up! xx”
After realizing her error Sherri, tweeted her sorries. “Apology to @Teresa_Giudice … thought you were at the party. I swear you got a doppleganger [sic]! Just as well – the drama didn’t involve you!” Teresa sort of does have a doppelganger (assuming she knows what that is): her sister in law Melissa — who as it turns out was the hot mess in question! Oh dear.
It seems Melissa attended the get together with Kathy Wakile and some bickering occurred in the bathroom — wait didn’t this already happen at the Posche Fashion Show? Melissa instantly went on the defense over Sherri’s “hot mess” accusation and replied, “”No honey! Someone tried 2 pull a publicity stunt last night 2try & cause drama, I was upset they did that!” Melissa claims she was jut an innocent bystander victimized by fame seeking harlots. uh huh. Again, haven’t we heard this story before (ahem… Posche Fashion Show)?
Speaking to the Huffington Post, Melissa explains her side of the story and insists it was all nonsense stirred up by a random party guest looking for a spot on RHONJ. “Someone tried to cause a fake fight to get attention because they are trying to be on the new ‘Housewives.’ ”
“Someone pretended that they overheard me and Kathy talking about a girl in the bathroom that is trying to get on the next season,” Melissa recounts. “I knew it was B.S. because we didn’t talk about anyone in the bathroom. So I called them out on it right away.”
“The girl admitted it the next day,” Melissa added. “It was so stupid they were just trying to get attention.” Richie Wakilesummed up the incident as, “Fake ass people out there! & you know who you are bitches!”
No word on who the “girl” is, but I’m guessing there is a lot more to this story than meets the eye — particularly with all the rumors swirling about Melissa as of late!
If you’re wondering if Melissa is tired of living “On Display” the answer is of course not! A fan tweeted her asking just that and she replied: “It comes with territory what I don’t like is the lying, everyone has an opinion I can’t get mad at that! Xo” Will the insanity never cease?
In other RHONJ news, Jacqueline Laurita is up to her Twitter antics again and this time she is admitting something we all suspected! Apparently her friendship with Melissa is not exactly what it’s portrayed to be! After giving Melissa a shout-out for producing payroll sheets to prove she was never a dancer, a fan asked Jacs about the nature of her relationship with her ex-bestfriend’s sister-in-law. Jacqueline Tweetplied: “Got friendly w/Mel bc I respect her as Ts fam.I like her.Shes always been nice2me.We dont talk&hangout like bffs.C her here&there”
My interpretation: Jacqueline got angry at Teresa and started buddy-ing up with Melissa to make Teresa angry.

After Scottie was listed in a CNBC.com article titled “15 Athletes Gone Bankrupt,” it seems several other media sources started repeating that the retired NBA star was broke! Dismissing the story wasn’t helped by the rumor that the Pippens were unable to sell their Miami home, featured on RHOM.
Well, Scottie is taking issues with media outlets reporting the so-called false claims of his bankruptcy and insisting he is actually worth no less than $40 million! The Chicago Sun Times is reporting that on Tuesday, Scottie filed a $9 million dollar federal lawsuit against several online media outlets, including: CNBC.com, CBSports, Arizona State University, Comcast Corp. and General Electric Co.
According to TMZ, Scottie’s suit claims he “never filed for bankruptcy and indeed has a substantial net worth, which has not been less than approximately $40 million in the last 10 years.” He is furious over shoddy reporting suggesting otherwise! “It is a most foul libel indeed to be falsely accused of being bankrupt,” the suit states.
Scottie believes these false stories were damaging to his reputation and he is seeking retribution for “negligence, false light and defamation.” Scottie’s suit alleges that each media outlet that “besmirched” his name should pay him $1 million in damages. Wow — that should pay for a lot of nannies!

IS SCOTTIE RIGHT TO FILE A LAWSUIT AGAINST MEDIA OUTLETS FOR FALSE REPORTING? DO YOU THINK HE IS BROKE?
