Ugh – after wisely phasing the original Teen Mom out of the line-up following one trainwreck after another from the cast, we could only hope MTV had plans to drop the Teen Mom series completely. No such luck!
RadarOnline is reporting that MTV has started casting for Teen Mom 3 which will follow a whole group of moms from this season’s16 & Pregnant. Although, this time MTV has an agenda to cast more stable girls!
Mackenzie Douthit, a former cheerleader from Oklahoma has a son named Gannon (yes, for real) and she is engaged to baby daddy Josh McGee. “She comes from a stable family and seems to have her life in order,” the source says. “MTV wanted someone like that.” Wait – they aern’t looking for Jenelle Evans, Jr?
Alexandria Sekella is from Pennsylvania and is the mama to a little girl named Arabella. She is memorable because she considered giving her daughter up for adoption but changed her mind. Alexandria also satisfied the crazy daddy drama, as her former fiancé Matt McCann entered rehab last December for drug addiction.
Regardless both girls are said to be thrilled about having their lives documented for our viewing pleasure. “Both of them are excited to be on Teen Mom 3,” the source says. “It’ll be quite a journey. Viewers loved them and can’t wait to see more.”
Well, hopefully they’ll have their lives a little more on track than certain current Teen Moms!
WILL YOU BE WATCHING TEEN MOM 3? ARE MACKENZIE AND ALEXANDRIA GOOD CHOICES FOR THE SHOW?
Yesterday, reports came out saying Brandi was let go for not being able to include her sons in the show after ex-husband Eddie Cibrian refused to allow them to be filmed. Well, apparently these were just rumors. “She’s a full-time Housewife,” a source close to the show tells E! News. “Bravo is fully supportive of Brandi and understands that Eddie won’t let her kids be shot for the show. It has zero impact on her involvement with the show.”
RumorFix confirms that Brandi will be back next season, although Eddie is not happy about it! “Eddie is going to fight Brandi about having them in the background on the show,” their source reveals. The source also claims Eddie and new wife LeAnn Rimes are hypocrites! “They are constantly doing photo ops and interviews that include the kids and Brandi does nothing.”
“She is going to fight back but Bravo isn’t involved, it’s all good with them. Eddie and LeAnn are always doing staged photo ops and interviews – Brandi just wants to see the kids when she has them.”
Brandi herself dispelled the rumors, taking to Twitter to confront them head-on. “Dear @radar_online u have no idea what ur talking about ur story is ALL wrong! As usual,” she wrote.
And she’s accusing Eddie of being responsible for the rumors! Oh boy. “Funny no one really knew or knows my work status and after one talk with my ex husband its splattered all over the internet #leakmuch?”
ARE YOU RELIEVED BRANDI IS STAYING ON HW? IS EDDIE TO BLAME FOR THE RUMORS?
One of the oddest things about The Bachelor and The Bachelorette‘s astoundingly low success rates was that ubiquitous host Chris Harrison was happily married to his high school sweetheart. Chris and his wife Gwen Jones kept their marriage very quiet and seemed to be happy as clams.
Sadly, yesterday the couple, who has two children together, filed for divorce after 18-years of marriage. Allegedly the pair has been separated for months, but have remained friends. Chris even threw Gwen a lavish birthday party this January. Despite their issues, they have also been co-parenting their children, Joshua, 9, and Taylor, 7.
“They are still really close and remain the best of friends,” an insider reports to In Touch Weekly. “They’ve been taking turns with their kids so they can both see them as much as possible. It has been really amicable, with no other parties involved, and Chris has been a total professional while filming The Bachelorette.”
Oh dear… it seems semi-scripted reality television is becoming a totally scripted movie! Fox Searchlite has just acquired the rights to untitled pitch that very closely resembles the plot of Basketball Wives!
It seems master puppeteer executive producerShaunie O’Neal is interested in spreading her wings into the movie making biz and has been working with famed writer-producer Tracey Edmonds to produce a film that draws “loosely from the lives of O’Neal and some of her friends.”
The idea centers aroung a young woman who follows her boyfriend to Miami after he is drafted into the NBA. “Thrust into the world of professional sports, she meets and learns from the sisterhood of players’ wives and learns from their trials and tribulations.” Gee – where have we heard that story before?
Alright, RuPaul’s Drag Race Fans (me included) this one’s for you and I’m serving up some gossip realness. Sharon Needles, our beloved freaky queen broke Drag Race tradition and was the first non-fishy lady crowned America’s Next Drag Superstar. Now the lady of the night speaks out about working with RuPaul and beating arch nemesis Phi Phi O’Hara!
Also, can we please talk about why Phi Phi made it to the final three anyway? Ugh. First of all the always humble Sharon confesses – she wasn’t at all surprised by her win! “I wasn’t really surprised at all. Being a drag queen is all about pulling out the stops and freaking them out,” she tells Entertainment Weekly.
“In all honesty, though, Chad Michaels and I were expecting a tie between me and her and that we would crack that crown in half, which would have been almost more of a pleasure and it would make more sense than to just have one of us beat Phi Phi,” Sharon snarks. Adding, “We figured possibly that RuPaul would keep the crown for herself.”

Although they originally married on October 23, 2011, the couple is planning to exchange vows again later this month in an intimate Santa Barbara ceremony – and I’m sure the photos will be exquisite! However, Reality Tea has acquired Briana and Ryan’s actual Las Vegas wedding photo!
The couple initially said “I do!” at the Vegas Weddings Walk Up Window. So it wasn’t a drive-thru but a walk-up chapel! Vegas Weddings offers a wide-variety of wedding packages at their lavish chapel but opting for something low-key, Briana and Ryan chose the walk up window.
According to a witness, the couple “didn’t want anything fancy, just to have a very simple ceremony.” And upon receiving their marriage license they walked across the street and tied the knot! A photo of Ryan and Briana after getting married at Vegas Wedding’s Walk Up Chapel is below!

Good lord – is there no end to Bethenny Frankel‘s empire? Guess not! The mogul – and I mean mogul – should probably get her own version of The Apprentice already, which isn’t a bad idea actually. Adding to her list of products, the Bethenny Ever After star just released her first novel, Skinnydipping – which is more of a memoir with the names changed to protect the innocent.
To promote her newest book endeavor, Bethenny has been making the media rounds talking marriage, reality TV, and writing!
“I’ve been on reality television for 8 years,” Bethenny said on TODAY of taking a break to write ‘fiction’. “I’ve been on a lot of my reality — my first three books were prescriptive in how to lose weight and how to get the most out of life. ‘Skinnydipping’ is just fun, refreshing…. It’s just a palate cleanser.”
Bethenny credits her fans for keeping her grounded and says that’s what led her to pursue the talk show route. “I have incredible fans,” she explained. “I have a great relationship with them, whether it’s on Twitter, emails or letters, I know exactly who they are. We are in a relationship. It’s why I wanted to do a talk show. It’s for them, so we can have a conversation, rather than just watch me living my life on television.”
Uh-oh – don’t count your chickens before they hatch! Or in this case don’t stop counting your wrinkles before your face lift heals! It seems that poor Brandi Glanville can never get a break where Housewives is concerned and may be suffering the same fate as the now retired Camille Grammer. Brandi has, allegedly, been let go for refusing to her feature her children on the show. And it’s all ex-husband Eddie Cibrian‘s fault!
According to RadarOnline, the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star’s contract was yanked by Bravo when it was determined that filming her children was a no-go. “Bravo wanted her to have her kids on the show in order to expand story lines,” a source reports. “But LeAnn [Rimes] and Eddie wouldn’t allow it.” Wait – LeAnn, former mistress, now wife has a say in the matter? Uhhh… sounds fishy to me!
