Well, I managed to imbibe myself through another episode of Bethenny Ever After. It was more of the same with the marital drama and the non-stop product plugs. We’re in the mid-season slump here where the storylines get staid and the characters seem too cranky and the viewers are looking for a resolution and a change of pace. Bethenny Frankel and Jason Hoppy continue to miscommunicate in their marriage, and despite that, they are considering making Skinnygirl enterprises a family business. At least they’ll finally have something to talk about! And Gina returned and blessedly hasn’t changed a bit!

Things begin with Bethenny meeting with her interior decorator Brooke, to make furniture choices for the new apartment. It seems Brooke is a bigger drama queen than Bethenny as she starts to need Xanax at the thought of Julie Plake leaving. Perhaps, it’s because Julie is the only person who can reign in Bethenny.

Next, Bethenny heads to Beam HQ where she is helping to oversee brand direction. Bethenny explains that just because Beam bought her out—identity, soul and all—she’s still involved, because Skinnygirl is more than booze—it’s now BMI tests, and depends (for when your Skinnygirl cleanse causes a mishap), and screwdrivers and tampons and mascara and vibrators—and anything a girl could possibly want or need that can be made in the colors of red and white, and have a photo of Bethenny slapped on the front of it. Skinnygirl deodorant – you got it!

Then, they do a new cocktail flavor test. Bethenny eschews every flavor, but White Cranberry Cosmo, which they plan to unveil in Aspen by Christmas. Pressure! Poor underprivileged Bethenny is excited about the launch party because she grew up skiing and will get to snowboard for the first time in years. And guess what she’s wearing? A Skinnygirl snowboarding suit!

Next, Bethenny heads to the marble yard, where she has a huge multi-contractor meltdown over bathroom plans. She loves being the center of attention in all of this mess and lecturing people on not communicating. She also loves pretending she has no control, while playing the diplomat amongst the professional renovators, who are all just hoping for their chance at a Bravo show of their own. Outside, she prays to a statue that everyone will get along and her apartment will actually happen.

Jason and Jackie pay a visit to the jeweler who made Bethenny‘s wedding ring. After last year’s birthday meltdown (Birthdays by Bravo!) Jason is walking on eggshells and feels a lot of pressure to make this one perfect. He is thinking of getting the setting changed on her engagement ring, because after less than two years of marriage, Bethenny is unhappy with it. A skinnygirl is never satisfied! And think about what that says about your marriage, Jason! Even the jewelers were like, ‘uhhh… dude – really? Not a good sign!’

Ahhhhh… Kimye. By far the most annoying celebrity moniker and accompanying celebrity couple since Bennifer. Remember them? Right, I expect Kimye to end in about the same way. Broken engagement, huge drama, and non-stop tabloid coverage about how they’re still secretly in love with each other 45 years later. But who knows – they could end up as happy in love as Brangelina!

So, Kim Kardashian and Kanye West have been parading their famewhoring love everywhere imaginable. And, apparently, things are going swimmingly for the couple. So swimmingly, that Kimmie Kakes has already shackled one of Kanye’s little swimmers to her uterus! That’s right folks – Kim just may be knocked up! I could have said pregnant, but that doesn’t start with a K.

“Kim is worried she could be pregnant!;” a source dishes. According to Star Magazine (via their print edition) Kim was recently spotted leaving a LA medical building with a contemplative look on her face. She could you know, be getting birth control or an exam, but that’s not nearly exciting enough gossip. The news is apparently joyful for the barely dating couple, as Kim desperately wants to start a family. So, anyone else think this is a complete publicity stunt? This has Kris Jenner‘s grubby little fingerprints all over it…

However, Kim is worried Kanye isn’t as rich as he purports to be! And before she moves forward wants a forensic exam of his bank account. “She wants to make sure Kanye’s worth as much she thinks,” the insider says. And if his pockets are deep enough, Kim will “move forward with the relationship.”

Unfortunately, things aren’t all wine, roses, and baby showers for the couple as they’ve already started fighting over Kim’s most favorite thing in all the world – money! “Kim really loves Kanye, but she loves money just as much – if not more!;” an insider reveals to Star. “She’s hoping that in the end, she’ll get both.”

Just last week the couple got into their first fight and it was over The Keeping Up With The Kardashians star’s obsession with his bank account. Wow – sometimes music does contain premonitions! #golddigger. “Kim is obsessed with money and it was starting to irritate him how it’s all she can talk about.” And during a recent visit to F.A.O Schwarz, witnesses overheard Kim badgering Kanye about his income. “She kept asking him about his touring revenue, the properties he owns and his savings,” a source reports. “Kanye finally had to tell her to back off and chill out. He told her she has nothing to worry about.”

Allegedly, Kim has some serious ulterior motives for dating Kanye – she wants to be taken care of! “She wants the kind of money where she can fly on private jets for the rest of her life,” an insider shares. And Kim is well-aware that since her business is built around her butt, she better have some insurance! “She knows she may not be able to work forever, so she wants a man who can ensure that she will always have the kind of life she wants.” Well, she has to stay married first!

Of course this all adds fuel to the speculation that Kim is in fact pregnant and worried about planning for her child’s future, but Kanye isn’t concerned. And he is protected. “He’s no fool,” an insider close to the star reports. And he already has a pre-nup at the ready! In fact, Kanye’s stepmother Dr. Cheryl West, says the rapper is more than prepared for the Kardashians! “I would not want him to be dragged into any foolishness, ” she warms. “But if you know Kanye, he knows what he’s getting into!”

And Dr. West is happy her stepson may be settling down. Even if it is with Kim! “If they love each other and are committed, kids would be a blessing,” she adds.

As for baby names, my suggestions would be Kween or King. Which fulfills both the insane Kimye ego and the use of the letter K! I’ll be trademarking Kween just in case these two decide to use it. Ka-ching!

Despite Kim’s probe into his wallet, Kanye is totally “obsessed” with her and not only lavishing Kim with attention! “Kim really hasn’t ever had a guy be so obsessed with her,” a source tells HollywoodLife. “She almost doesn’t know how to handle how much Kanye likes her. She has never felt this loved and it makes her feel good.”

“Kim flies to New York all the time and Kanye is loaded so it’s not hard for them to see each other,” the source continues. “He flew her private to Paris for his fashion show last minute — he’ll do anything for Kim.” Well, it sounds like Kim is getting her wish – money and love! And possibly a baby too. Anyone else slightly afraid of the potential E! specials!?

Finally, just in case you haven’t heard, Novartis Consumer Health, the makers of Theraflu aren’t on board with Kimye – nor are they interested in endorsing Kanye’s ode to Kim! “We in no way endorse or approve of the references or use of the image and likeness of Theraflu in this manner,” A representative told TMZ.

The company isn’t demanding that Kanye re-title the song or anything, but the rapper decided to anyway! Kanye has changed the name to “Way Too Cold.”And the company wants the world to know, that despite not wanting to endorse the song, they had nothing to do with Kanye’s decision! “Novartis Consumer Health did not ask that the name be changed — that request would be way too cold.”

PREGNANT OR PUBLICITY STUNT? IS SHE AFTER KANYE FOR HIS MONEY? DOES THIS RELATIONSHIP HAVE A CHANGE? DO YOU CARE?

With Real Housewives of New Jersey about to blow up in our faces—literally—news of the ladies behind the scenes antics and drama are spreading like wildfire. Teresa Giudice has been working hard, earning that money, and appearing on Celebrity Apprentice in the off-season but she’s also continuing to have major family problems. It seems everyone is annoyed with her positive attitude in the face of drama and because she chooses to put on a happy face, family and friends have dubbed her fake!

According to Reality Tea’s source, Teresa and brother Joe Gorga are still at odds over his belief that she is “fake.” And despite a recent family vacation to Mexico and Teresa’s upbeat demeanor, she’s actually feeling unhappy and completely alone. Oh no! “Teresa isn’t as happy as she looks – or tells the media,” our source exclusively tells Reality Tea. “Teresa is not happy. She will NEVER let anyone think she is not [happy].”

Our source gives some background information on Teresa’s issues with her brother. Since drama surrounding Teresa’s finances and her husband Joe Giudice‘s legal woes have become front-page news, Teresa has kept her brother at a distance due to embarrassment. And Joe perceives that as her being fake!

“They were so close, and since she was on the show she is not honest with him. She pretends everything is fine. Meanwhile, it is not,” our source reports. “Teresa complained that her brother wasn’t there for her when Joe went to jail, meanwhile, Teresa never even told her brother what was going on.”

So, last night was the first segment of the so-called “epic” Real Housewives of Atlanta reunion. I have to admit, reunions are so hard to recap, because really I can barely decipher what the women are talking about and I usually have to watch on closed captioning; A) because there’s too much screaming and B) because I can never grasp the she said-from-she said through the screaming – particularly where NeNe Leakes is involved. That being said, NeNe’s slamming of Sheree Whitfield was epic indeed! The theme of last night’s show-down was apparently “finances,” specifically who has them and who doesn’t. And does Sheree really have several storage units full of furniture or did she steal that storyline from Kim?

Before we start recapping anything, let’s discuss my personal most shocking moment of last night’s spectacle. Sheree Whitfield of She by Shebroke announced that She by Sheree—her failed clothing experiment, that consisted of a fashion show with no clothes and the owing of $30,000 to Dwight Eubanks for photocopies—is staging a revival. As in, She by Sheree is not dead, but merely on hiatus and we can expect more where that came from. Is she serious? She by Sheree?! As in, worse clothes than Alexis Couture! As in, NO ONE ON THIS EARTH is buying them. Ok, now that I got that off my chest, let’s commence with this recap, shall we…

Last night opened with a fight to end all fights: do former strippers have the right to be disgusted by dildos? Are all former strippers supposed to be ok with the usage and discussion of dildos, ding-a-lings, and vajayjays? Are these women really and truly adults or is this a ruse Andy Cohen is attempting to fool us with before bringing out the real adult women?

With Real Housewives of New York soon upon us, so too are the ladies and their PR machines. Apparently, this season didn’t turn out any less vitriolic than the last one despite the firing of four Housewives. And it seems all of the drama and negativity centered around one Pinot-soaked, wide-eyed specimen called Ramona Singer. Imagine that!

It seems Ramona, who began the season friends with newbie Aviva Drescher (indeed Ramona was rumored to have gotten Aviva cast on the show) didn’t end the season on the same note. The two are reportedly not speaking to each other, but they are speaking to the press about each other! Only in reality TV world do your ex-friends publicly snark you for publicity! Remember when deleting someone from Facebook was sufficient?

Anyway, in a chat with HollywoodLife, Aviva admits that this season she definitely separated her friends from her co-stars! “It’s like art imitating life and you know who your friends are, you learn who you can trust, you learn who you can’t trust,” she explained. “I really do love by coincidence to two other new women Carole [Radziwill] and Heather [Thomson]. But it wasn’t because we were new, it truly happened that way, organically.”

Ramona is also speaking about on said friendships and it’s no surprise she’s taking no responsibility for any of the issues. I’m really worried that all the Pinot has started to effect her brain.

“What’s interesting is that I embrace each and everyone equally the same way,” Ramona tells RumorFix. “But it turns out that a relationship is dramatically different with each and everyone,  which reflects real life. Not everyone can be great friends with everyone no matter how you are. Certain people have conflicts with each other … it’s reflective of life.”

“It’s kind of interesting because with one housewife, for whatever reason because we didn’t quite hit it off on the right foot. And we ended up really getting really close. And the one who was embracing me and was going out of her way to become my BFF, at the end we went wrong. It was craziness.”

Ramona also reveals that despite the show being called Real Housewives of New York, the ladies do a lot of traveling out of NYC. Likely because, New York wouldn’t have them. Rumors were abound that certain cosmopolitan establishments were not welcoming to the housewives that represent their fair city’s name! So the ladies took their crazy around the globe!

“There’s a trip to London, a trip to South Beach, and trip to St. Barts,” Ramona dishes. “The St. Barts trip is off the charts! It’s off the rails!  You’ll have to watch. Someone gets possessed by someone, that’s what I think.” Ok, then – so long as it’s not another menopausal pregnancy scare, I’ll watch!

Moving right along, LuAnn de Lesseps‘ boyfriend Jacques Azoulay is talking his relationship with LuAnn and what’s next for the couple. Hint, hint – it involves a wedding and possibly a reality show! When asked if the couple was talking marriage, Jacques confessed “always.”

And he’d even consider televising any upcoming nuptials, telling WetPaint, “Maybe. We’ve discussed, but I’m not definite about it. Maybe. Why not?” That’s code for ‘Bravo, please pay for our wedding and offer us a spin-off, called Money Can’t Buy You Love‘.

As for what it’s like having their relationship play out on TV, Jacques doesn’t seem to mind. “It’s fun,” he shares. LuAnn “is who she is first. The rest, it’s circumstances. But we enjoy it, we do.”

Finally, comedian Amy Phillips, recently did some impersonations of Pinot Singer and former Housewife Bethenny Frankel. And really, they are beyond hilarious! The spot-on and absolutely sensational clips are below!

THOUGHTS ON THE DRAMA? ARE YOU SURPRISED RAMONA IS THE MAIN SOURCE OF CONFLICT? WOULD YOU WATCH A JACQUES AND LUANN WEDDING SPIN-OFF?

On last night’s episode of Mob Wives, the shiz hit the fan as Renee Graziano continued to deal with the fall-out from Junior Pagan. Renee worried that karma would find her and all of Staten Island would turn on her, just like she turned on Karen Gravano! Luckily for Renee, her friends stood by her and she even had an epiphany. Which, was over-shadowed by some drama concerning her best frienemy Carla Facciolo.

Things begin with an all too real and extremely distraught Renee learning that Junior‘s rat behavior has become front page news. As in everyone is talking about it and everyone knows she’s in love with a rat. Renee is in a tailspin worrying about what everyone is going to think and how she will be treated by her circle. It seems Junior’s cheating ways cannot be quelled and, unfortunately, he’s cheating with the feds this time! And the feds do not a good mistress make.

Someone who knows all too well about having a rat in the family, is Karen. Karen calls her mom to discuss what Renee is going through. Karen’s mother is empathetic to Renee’s plight and especially for how AJ will suffer from his father’s actions. Karen describes her mom as the family rock who held everything together and still does.

Learning of Junior‘s actions has forced Drita D’avanzo to reconsider the state of her relationship with Renee and she decides to pay her a visit. Drita is afraid—who wouldn’t be—but decides to put her fear in her purse. Renee answers the door, unarmed and alone, and not even wearing make-up. She’s a mess. Drita is sympathetic and offers Renee a hug and a shoulder to cry on.

Renee and Drita discuss Junior‘s betrayal, and Renee reveals that he was in cohorts with the feds before moving back in with her and before restarting their relationship. The realization that Junior not only ratted out her father, but used her to garner more information about her family is devastating. Drita is overcome with emotion and tears up. Renee, oh poor Renee. A broken Renee just wants to know the truth about Junior’s intentions for getting a back together.

Paralleling the effects of rattism years later, Karen is recording her book for audio release. As she struggles through Chapter 11, the memories are still painful for her. Everyone wants to know who and what is in Karen’s book and regardless of whether he likes it or not, one Lee D’avanzo has a prominent role in the story. Despite Lee’s insistence that he and Karen were scarcely a thing, Karen is holding firm to the notion that he was not only a huge part of her life, but that he betrayed both she and her father. Drita, of course, will also have a place as the least loyal friend who ever lived and the one person Karen cannot forgive. Karen doesn’t care who’s mad – sometimes the truth isn’t what people want to hear. Amen sister!

Drita announces she is training for a boxing match. Drita grew up boxing. Boxing is second nature to her; like putting lipstick, loving a man named Lee, and slurping wine with Carla. Drita’s prized possession is her mean right hook. And she believes training to box will help her channel some of her aggression. Sadly, during a sparring match she kinda loses it and ends up reverting to her kick boxing survival ways and kicks her trainer. Uhhh… this isn’t Mortal Kombat!

Big Ang Raiola pays a visit to Renee, who is quarantined at home and has taken up permanent residence on her sofa with a box of tissues and the newspaper bearing Junior‘s betrayal. Big And is wise and soulful, counseling Renee to go on for AJ‘s sake and reminding her that she mustn’t let this destroy her. Renee reveals that the worst part of all of this is being called a rat herself; which is both shocking and horrible. This has helped Renee put Karen‘s situation into perspective and she doesn’t want AJ to be treated the way Karen was when she returned home to Staten Island. At least Renee’s priorities are in whack!

The next day Karen stops by. When she arrives, Renee is up and moving around and she has lipgloss on! Victory in small things! Renee is also packing up Junior‘s belongings. Renee admits this has been the wake-up call, really the tidal wave of wake-up calls and reality has now come crashing down. She recognizes just how unsavory being a mafia princess really is and for the first time she is truly willing and ready to abandon the lifestyle which has become her identity and her sense of self.

Renee has been forced to reassess her entire life. Unfortunately, she also realized there is no more one big happy family when it comes to Junior. She has not only lost the love of her life, and her father, but also her identity.

The last two seasons of Real Housewives of Atlanta have focused on NeNe Leakes marital issues, separation, and potential divorce from husband Gregg Leakes. Unfortunately, many suspected that NeNe and Gregg were creating the marital drama for ratings and a storyline!

This season NeNe was seen receiving elaborate gifts and “dating” sugar daddy, John Kolaj, as she wrestled with signing her divorce papers on film, citing she wasn’t ready to officially end her marriage. Even more confusing was the fact that NeNe and Gregg were seen together out and about several times over the last year when their marriage was supposedly in jeopardy and on the brink of divorce. It was to everyone’s surprise that in last week’s finale episode Bravo announced NeNe was officially divorced! When did that happen? And did it really?

The internet has been abuzz with questions about whether or not NeNe and Gregg’s marriage is actually over—or if it was a Bravo fabricated storyline with the two remaining in marital bliss behind the scenes. After all, last year NeNe was allegedly supposed to receive her own spin-off; which would focus on her single life and entry into the dating pool after fifteen years of marriage. Obviously that never happened—and many believed it was because NeNe was actually still very much a Mrs. and the couple wouldn’t go through with ending their marriage for a pay raise. Apparently, they have officially called it quits and the divorce is indeed a done deal.

Following yesterday’s report that Taylor Armstrong will be “phased out” of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, the reality trainwreck star is freaking out. Even worse, Taylor allegedly found out about Bravo’s plan to gradually remove her from the cast from reading the tabloids! Oops—that’s gotta sting!

Upon hearing the gossip, Taylor immediately got on the phone to Bravo producers for reassurance, only to be told that the rumor was kinda true! “Taylor called because she was certain that there was no way that she was going to be phased out,” a source close to the reality star reveals to RadarOnline. “However, when she spoke with the higher ups they didn’t deny that she would be featured on the show in a much more limited capacity with a much smaller role.”

The news is devastating to Taylor, who is under contract for another year and will not be eligible to secure any other TV deals until released! “Taylor now knows that her days on the show are numbered. She is extremely upset because she just signed a contract extension for season three, but she wasn’t made aware of Bravo’s plans for her. She absolutely freaked out because she counts on the show as her primary source of income and uses it as a platform to secure other endorsement deals.” Uh-oh!

Moving on, Adrienne Maloof and her family are again threatening to move their NBA team, the Saramento Kings. If you recall, last season Adrienne was shown attending what could possibly be the final game at the King’s Sacramento stadium, and was faced with protests from local residents. Adrienne announced that upon learning how much the team meant to the community they had decided not to relocate the team.

However, a year later, things have changed. According to the NY Times, the outdated arena remains a problem for the team owners, and the family is hinting that the team’s days in the city are numbered. Yesterday, the Maloof family hosted a press conference in which they detailed plans to relocate the team, because a soluble agreement with the city could not be reached.

Apparently, in October of last year, the family reached a “handshake deal” with Sacramento Mayor, Kevin Johnson, agreeing to financial terms for the new arena; but the deal is no longer sufficient. The Maloofs would like the deal renegotiated and they would like to see progress to substantiate the agreement, but the city is not prepared to make changes or agree to a proposed renovation of the exiting arena. Other areas of contention include the lease agreement for the new facility, naming rights, arena design, and responsibility of game-day expenses.

The Maloof family also objects to the city’s request for a financial contribution of an additional $3.2 million towards the project when they were already expected to shell-out $73M. The NBA was prepared to loan the family $67 M and give them an additional $7M for the construction with the city kicking in $255M. Sheesh—that’s one hell of an outrageously expensive basketball court! Maybe they can borrow the court at the local YMCA?

“If [Mayor Kevin Johnson] says he’s not negotiating, then he killed the deal,” Adrienne’s brother, George Maloof, said in a press conference yesterday. “It’s over.”

Since the deal was non-binding, the Maloofs have every right to back out and begin looking for a new location for the team as the move is apparently imminent.

THOUGHTS ON LATEST IN THE RHOBH CASTING DRAMA? DO YOU BELIEVE THE NEWS THAT TAYLOR WILL BE “PHASED OUT”? IS IT A MISTAKE FOR THE MALOOF’S TO MOVE THEIR NBA TEAM?
