The very interesting thing about Real Housewives is that off-screen drama is always a zillion times more interesting than on-screen drama. Case in point; the latest Real Housewives of Orange County on-again/off-again Gretchen Rossi and Tamra Barney friendship or feud debacle.

Days after a story leaked, claiming Gretchen told tabloids that Tamra and now fiancé Eddie Judge got engaged after Bravo paid for both a ring and a luxury vacation to film the proposal, both ladies are defending themselves against the allegations. First up, is Gretchen who adamantly denies any involvement in so-called tabloid tattling!

Speaking to CNN news, of all places, Gretchen claims everyone wants the fight between Tamra and herself to continue! “I think because Tamra and I have been at each other’s necks the last few years,” Gretchen claims. “I mean, bottom line, the audience likes the fight, to think that Tamra and I are at each other’s necks angry at each other.”

“[And] I think a lot of people were expecting an engagement between Slade [Smiley] and I and when that didn’t happen and all of a sudden Tamra’s engaged, I think that the press just made this up.” That’s an interesting assessment – are that many people really dying for Gretchen and Slave to tie the knot, because frankly, I think most of us couldn’t care less!

Gretchen claims that not only is she thrilled beyond belief for her new friend, she is planning the bachelorette party! “For goodness sakes, I went out to dinner with her and Eddie and Terry and Heather and we celebrated the engagement and I’m gonna throw the bachelorette and Heather’s gonna throw the bridal shower!;” Gretchen insists. “If I actually believed it’s a sham, why would I offer to throw the bachelorette party?”

“It’s disappointing; we know the truth, we know what’s going on,” Gretchen says, adding that the media is spinning it out of control. You can see the video of Gretchen defending herself below!

Unfortunately for Gretchen, Tamra doesn’t seem to exonerate her from involvement in the story – nor is she confirming any news of bachelorette parties! Instead, she is talking wedding plans and while there are none until next season she is thrilled to be engaged! “Proposing to me in Bora Bora was a huge surprise and the most romantic trip of my life,” Tamra tells RumorFix. “We have no wedding date or plans set, but we are thinking about having a destination wedding somewhere fabulous.”

“Regarding the recent report on TMZ article. I find it hurtful and vicious for someone to make up such horrible lies about my engagement,” she fumes. “To try and take away from my happiness is just down right mean.”

And she is completely insistent that Bravo had nothing to do with the most romantic day of her life! “Bravo does not control my life and my love can not be bought or manipulated by them or anyone else.” You know what, I kind of believe her!

Moving right along, Vicki Gunvalson is talking about herself again. No, just kidding… Vicki is talking how being a Housewife has changed over the years – and she blames the inclusion of younger ladies into the mix. And Vicki prefers the old way of doing things!

“I was one of the youngest cast members and now I’m the oldest,” Vicki shares. In the beginning, “We weren’t fighting, we were just talking about our lives, raising kids,” Vicki tells The Huffington Post.

Vicki believes in order to amp up drama, the producers started matriculating younger, less settled, and more fame hungry girls into the cast. “They are bringing in the girls 16 years younger. Hello,” she claims. “I think the producers wanted to sexercise it so we got the younger girls, but its okay, just more fights.” I assume Vicki is referring to Gretchen and her grifter-buddy Sarah Winchester, who has barely been on screen so far – much to my delight!

Interestingly, Vicki says the shift in the show’s dynamic has been hurtful to her insurance business; which she still maintains is her primary job. “Yes, absolutely it does hurt business,” Vicki confirms. “I have to be very careful of what I say and how my temper shows and I really try to control all drinking on camera because I’m not a big drinker anyway, but they sensationalize it. [They] Make them think you are drinking more than you are when you’re not drinking that much.”

While Vicki insists the producers don’t force the drama–they just cast accordingly–apparently it’s working! Or maybe not. NBC is reporting that the seventh season of RHOC is gearing up to be the series’ highest rated season yet. Which is ironic, considering new addition Heather is in her forties and hardly the youngest of the bunch. Also interesting, it is the OG’s Vicki, Tamra, and Gretchen who are causing the most trouble this season!

New episodes of the show are averaging about 2 million viewers and ratings are up 10% from last season, according to the Nielsen Ratings. Tuesday night’s mainly dramaless episode garnered a whopping 1.36 million adult viewers aged 18-49 and was the most watched episode of the season since the premiere. Apparently, people really want to see Vicki and Gretchen throw down over Slave Slimey!

I have to say, although the drama is exciting, I preferred earlier seasons of the shows where the fights seemed less forced and were less often. I agree, recent seasons of Housewives of all varieties have become increasingly low-brow and trashy. If I wanted all that nonsense I’d tune into Bad Girls Club! But maybe, the majority of viewers prefer the over-the-top behavior and non-stop bickering. What do you think?

SO – DID GRETCHEN LEAK THE STORY TO THE TABLOIDS OR NOT? ARE YOU SURPRISED SHE’S THROWING THE BACHELORETTE? IS VICKI RIGHT THAT YOUNGER HOUSEWIVES HAVE AMPED UP THE DRAMA AND TRASHED UP THE SHOW? THOUGHTS ON THE RATINGS?

First up, the important news! Celebrity reject, Kim Kardashian can add one more item to the list of why her life sucks. The fur-loving reality hoochie was flour bombed last night at the London Hotel of West Hollywood while promoting her new perfume, True Reflection. Um… so, do y’all think Kim can take a note from her newest fragrance and truly reflect on the embarrassing disaster that is her life? Probably not.

Anyways, back to the flour bomb! According to TMZ, a woman threw the substance at Kim from behind, dousing her completely, and screamed “Fur hag!” Kim was most recently photographed rocking fur at Kanye West‘s Paris fashion show.

The flour got all over Kim’s jacket and her extensions hair. The fire department was called to examine the powder and the police arrested the attacker. Kim decided not to press charges, which was nice of her, and the woman was released. Kim was able to complete her scheduled appearance despite the fashion mishap. Hey, now she has something in common with Ryan Seacrest, who got doused by Sasha Cohen at the Oscars!

While PETA is not taking credit for this incidence, they do tell TMZ they are glad it happened! “PETA has tried everything from polite letters to public protests, but Kim Kardashian has not been moved by the news that animals are beaten, electrocuted, and even skinned alive for real fur garments. Whoever threw that flour may reach her when our polite appeals did not,” said PETA in a statement.

Some are also speculating on whether the Kardashians might have planned the attack to make headlines and garner some sympathy for Kimmie. I definitely wouldn’t put it past these people, as we all know they are willing to go to any means to make Kimmie a victim!

Photos and a video of Kimmie Kakes getting Flour Bombed are below! A photo of Kim pre-attack is above.

Moving on, the marital problems of Khloe Kardashian and Lamar Odom are being put under a microscope. Hey, don’t want your life picked apart – stay off reality TV, which is exactly what Lamar’s planning! Apparently, being the subject of Khloe & Lamar is ruining their marriage and he is fed up!

Sources report that Khloe and Lamar are actually happy together, but that pimpmomager Kris Jenner is convincing Khloe that fights and problems equal good ratings. She’s gotta make that money! “Kris is constantly telling Khloe that marital conflicts equals ratings! Kris has convinced Khloe that if it weren’t for Lamar, she would not have her own reality show and that if she wants another season she needs to embellish the conflicts in the marriage because that’s what viewers want,” a friend tells HollywoodLife.

Unfortunately, all the pretend problems are starting to equal real problems and Lamar is disenfranchised with the idea of being on reality television. ”Kris is blind to the fact that Khloe and Lamar’s relationship is suffering because of reality TV,” the source adds.

“Lamar is a pretty laid back person but he has had enough. He feels like a puppet and he has already told Khloe that he is not going to create drama on the show for ratings, in fact, he wants out completely.”

This was also the case with Kourtney Kardashian and Scott Disick. The two fought constantly on Kourtney & Kim Take New York, but insiders claimed it was all an act for ratings and that the couple is actually very happy and get along great. Sure enough, shortly after filming ended Kourtney announced her second pregnancy, but rumors still persist that the couple is in crisis.

Apparently, Lamar initially agreed to take part in filming because he didn’t think it would be that big of a deal, but with the success of their spin-off show Kris J started pushing things to get bigger and more dramatic. Lamar “never ever thought his life would become so consumed by the Kardashian franchise.”

In order to save his marriage–and his career–Lamar is setting limits. An insider for the Dallas Mavericks is claiming that Lamar’s second job as reality television husband is interfering with this basketball commitments and it might be curtains on his NBA career if he doesn’t shape up! “No one understands why Lamar keeps doing reality TV,” the source tells HollywoodLife. “It’s absolutely ruining his career. You would think it would be clear which career to pursue, but for some reason, he can’t decide. At some point, someone is going to make that decision for him.”

In the meantime, Lamar has decided he is not going to expose their personal life completely; if he wants to be respected as an athlete and a professional he has to draw the line somewhere. And that somewhere is the couple’s on-going fertility issues. “Lamar has pretty much given Khloe an ultimatum that he will NOT pursue any fertility treatments with her if they are taped for reality TV,” a close family friend reveals.

“Khloe feels torn because she thinks it would be good for ratings. She is worried that there won’t be enough of a story line to tape for the new season of Khloe & Lamar. She basically has to chose between having babies or reality TV and fame.”

Khloe has admitted in the past that taping the show is stressful on their marriage and it may interfere with their baby making time, but she has Kris J’s genes and pimping out anything for fame and attention seems to run in her blood.

Which, is another problem for her hubby! “The reason Lamar fell in love with Khloe in the first place was because of her independence, now he feel like she has lost that because she is so entangled with her mom and sisters and the whole celebrity thing,” the insider discloses. “It’s a real turn off for Lamar!”

Last night’s season finale for Project Runway All Stars went about how I expected. A winner was crowned, the losers flew first class to Paris and everyone else flocked to Neiman Marcus online to start procuring some goods!

The designers arrived at the Gotham Center for the finale show where they each had their own special dressing area, complete with their customized Neiman Marcus accessory walls. Austin still isn’t finished with his evening gown and is rushing around doing last-minute construction. Michael realizes that although he thought he had everything finished, he’s having a ton of last-minute fit issues. Mondo doesn’t seem to be experiencing any trauma–for once–and is confident going into the final show. There’s some last-minute preparations and drama, but nobody really cares about that! Let’s get to the final show.

Weeks before filming is slated to begin on Real Housewives of Beverly Hills–with rumors that Bravo still hasn’t extended contracts with the cast and is actively scouting for new housewives–Taylor Armstrong (who is, according to reports, already skating on thin ice) is finding herself the recipient of much negative press and scrutiny.

The Housewife who has a penchant for changing her stories as often as she changes her underwear (we hope!), is receiving some serious backlash after the legitimacy of her abuse claims made in her non-fiction bestseller, Hiding From Reality. Her claims are being questioned, well, because some 0f them sound downright unbelievable and there’s no proof anywhere!

According to Reality Weekly (via their print edition), Taylor’s outrageous claims and subsequent media speculation are having some unfortunate and surprising side effects! As a result, domestic violence charities are not interested in having Taylor affiliated with their organizations.

Even worse, Taylor’s rep has tried to book her at domestic violence events and Taylor has been turned down by charity leaders because she is too controversial, and is not considered a good spokeswomen for their organizations. Yikes!

Taylor is still affiliated with the 1736 Family Crisis Center, and recently hosted a fundraiser for the organization. She claimed she was planning to donate proceeds from her book to their cause.

Moving along, Taylor is also facing backlash after rumors of an alleged affair with her very married attorney, John Bluher, surfaced. John is representing Taylor in the massive lawsuit filed against her by MyMedicalRecords.

Both Taylor and John (and John’s wife) denied any romantic affiliation, but several sources claim it was indeed going on. Adding to suspicions that the two were sharing more than attorney-client privileges, John was spotted in New York with Taylor while she was promoting her book. John claimed he was coincidentally there on separate business. Uh-uh…

Apparently, now that she is receiving some serious public scrutiny from, well, everywhere, and her Bravo contract is on the line, Taylor has dumped John and called off the affair. “Once the story made headlines Taylor broke it off with John and told him they couldn’t see each other anymore,” a source close to Taylor disclosed to RadarOnline. “She just has so much going on and didn’t want any bad press, especially involving her and a married man.”

John is reportedly disappointed that Taylor broke things off because he’s also a famewhore he had strong feelings for her, but Taylor’s friends are relieved she will no longer be “the other woman,” as she has enough drama happening!

I have to say, Ms. Armstrong certainly has a talent for causing problems! Here’s hoping we won’t have to see her doing it on-screen in the upcoming season of RHOBH!

DO YOU BELIEVE TAYLOR’S DUBIOUS ABUSE ACCOUNTS ARE CAUSING HER TO LOSE CREDIBILITY WITH DOMESTIC VIOLENCE ORGANIZATIONS? WAS SHE HAVING AN AFFAIR WITH JOHN?

Tough Love New Orleans

Tough Love: New Orleans premieres April 15 at 9 PM/8c on Vh1! Bios for the new cast coming soon!

WILL YOU BE WATCHING THE NEW SEASON?


Last night’s episode of Real Housewives of Orange County was kinda boring, no? Alexis and Briana got surgery. Tamra discovered Simon is finally ready to let her be the free bitch she was meant to be – but she’s not sure she’s ready to live a life unfettered. Tamra and Vicki join Heather in LA where she is embarking upon a restaurant venture.

Things started out with Tamra paying a visit to her plastic surgeon, Dr. Ambae. Has anyone else noticed the Housewives always hug their doctors – who hugs their doctors? I’ve never hugged any of mine, but I guess if I were as reliant on my plastic surgeons as they are, it may be a different story. OR if my doctor was Paul, because I love him.

Anyway, Tamra wants to get her breasts reduced. Now that she is no longer beholden to Simon and his ideals about her body, she wants a smaller, less cumbersome rack. We get a close-up montage of Tamra’s old DDs and frankly, who wants to see a close up of wrinkled, spray-tanned cleavage? Dr. Ambae examines Tamra’s boobs and determines she has a lot of natural breast tissue so she can likely get the reduction done without adding smaller implants to fill things out. Tamra explains that those babies never stop growing! Third boobs, third marriage!

Trashtastic Kim Kardashian just couldn’t stay out of the spotlight if she tried. Not that she ever tries, but, you know – she should! The woman whose skankiness is legendary is once again in the crossfire over her ever-changing romantic entanglements.

First up, despite the rumors that she is dating Kanye West and was recently used and excused by Reggie Bush, Kim is claiming none of that’s the case! Confronting rumors directly, she sat down with E! Kardashian reality producer Ryan Seacrest on his radio show and squelched them head on. “I’m really not dating right now at all,” the Keeping Up With The Kardashians star claimed. “I’m really just focusing on work. I know I always say this, but I’m trying to just get through my situation and just have fun.”

So, why is she keeping such a low romantic profile? “I think I’m still married,” she rebuts. Um… well yeah, the real question is was she ever really married in spirit and I think the answer to that is a no way.

And responding to the gossip that she is planning to adopt to boost her image, Kim flat-out denies it. “I don’t even know where that came from, ” she protests. “What’s so crazy is…the magazines could easily call and ask, and we would say yes or no. But no, that’s not true.”

“I’ve heard so many ridiculous things and to be honest I used to read all the magazines and watch things. I don’t even look at any of that anymore. I’ve taken my Google alerts off my phone!” Uhhhh… yeah to the right!

Kim was also asked about actor Jon Hamm’s recent comments about her, you know, about her being a “f*cking idiot.” Kimmie responded: “I just feel like, to be honest, it’s all about trying to stay focused and keeping everything positive. It really takes a lot more energy and effort to be harsh than to say something nice and be positive.”

And here’s some negative attention for Kim to ignore! Star Magazine (via their print edition) is reporting that Kim dumped Kris Humphries over money! Audrey Hick, an old friend of Kris’ who is currently in jail (I know, I know… the source is suspect) is claiming Kris wasn’t rich enough for the Kardashians!

Apparently, once Kris explained that his financial situation wasn’t going to increase significantly, Kim started to have doubts about the relationship. “Kris told her he wouldn’t be pulling in $20 million a year and that deflated things for her,” Aubrey reveals.

But the wedding had already started to commence and Kim was invested in increasing her own financial net worth. “Kim was not going to let it fail once it reached critical mass. Once the engagement happened, she was going to have that wedding and make money from it.”

To enact revenge, Kim all but drained the couple’s joint checking account which allegedly contained all the money they earned on the wedding related blitz. “Whatever was earned by Kim and Kris separately was going to be theirs but any money earned together such as from the wedding would go into the account,” Andrey says.

Even worse, Aubrey claims Kim was a gold-digger because her own financial standing isn’t as secure as she’d have the public believe! “We have Kim presenting herself as extraordinarily wealthy but she was borrowing $10,000 here and $10,000 there.” Perhaps she was in Dubai to secure a rich husband!

Aubrey is alleging that Kim and Kris were worth about the same going into their nuptials. “Her net worth is only $8 million,” he adds. “And $3 million of that is in furniture and clothing. This is a woman who wants at whatever cost, to support her lifestyle.”

Hmmm… I’m not sure I believe much of this story, but you never know! Kim reportedly made $17M on her wedding alone.

Moving right along, Kim’s plans to snag a new man aren’t working out. Which may be why she’s denying any whisperings that she’s started dating again!

According to In Touch Weekly (via their print edition), Reggie never planned on seriously reconnecting with Kim and was just using her for sex all along. The reason? Reggie knew all about her dishonest, cheating ways. “He never really trusted her,” a friend of Reggie’s explains. Apparently, the NFL star considers Kim to be a “user and a fame-seeker,” and he no longer respects her.

Kim’s rep is, of course, denying any truth to the rumors that Reggie hooked up with Kim and then lost her number, but Kim is said to be furious. To retaliate she mosied down to Paris to cavort with fellow attention whore, Kanye! Which apparently, Reggie feels only proves his point about Kim’s true intentions.

“Kanye had invited Kim to Paris, but at first she turned down the offer,” a friend explains. “She wound up changing her mind after Reggie dumped her because she wanted to make him upset.” The non-stop display of flirting and the “deep sexual attraction” she pretended to have with Kanye was apparently all for show.

Unfortunately, Reggie saw right through her transparent attempt to get his attention and he isn’t falling for it. “Reggie thinks Kim and Kanye are two of a kind,” the source adds. They “deserve each other.”

DOES KIM REALLY IGNORE ALL HER NEGATIVE PR? DID KIM AND REGGIE EVER HAVE A CHANCE? THOUGHTS ON AUBREY’S ALLEGATIONS THAT KIM DUMPED KRIS OVER MONEY – TRUE OR RIDICULOUS?


Bravo is doing everything in its power to redeem the lackluster Real Housewives of Miami, which was a complete dud until the live reunion aired on WWHL. In fact, one could probably credit firecracker Adriana de Moura going head-to-head with former castmates Larsa Pippen and Christy Rice at that reunion for the network’s decision to bring back the floundering series.

Adriana is speaking out about what went wrong last year and explaining why this year will be a whole lot more action-packed. If that doesn’t smell of fabricated drama, I don’t know what does!

Adriana confirms the second season has been filming for a couple of weeks now and with a new production company things are going to be much spicier! “I always knew we would come back. Miami is such a destination that everyone wants to be a part of. We just needed the right elements to make it right. I knew given the right direction, right people and support, it was going to be a home run,” The ever-confident Adriana tells the NewTimes Miami. “I think we are in for the best season yet.”

As for why last season was as bland as can be, she blames two factors (ahem… Christ and Larsa). “I don’t want to point fingers. I think there were two people that ruined our chemistry. When people are dampers, it’s hard to make things happen. They affected the whole season.”

Adriana is well aware that her “performance” at the live reunion was the high point of the dismal season of Larsa talking about her nannies and she isn’t afraid to take credit where credit is due! “I am as real as they come. At the reunion, I was just fed up,” she explains.

“People just sat around, criticized and just brought the whole season down. I don’t deal with that whole mean girl, high school attitude. If you are going to criticize, at least bring it.”

One way Bravo is amping up the new season is by adding new castmates. Adriana confirms there are new additions. “We have a handful of new girls. Let’s say, more than two, less than five,” she teases. “We had half of Miami trying to get on this show after season one. I am proud to be a part of it.”

Rumors have already circulated that Joanna Krupa and Lisa Hochstein will join the cast after they were spotted filming scenes for the series. And now, rumors are circulating that Karent Sierra will be added!

Karent is a model, actress, spokesperson and… a dentist! Has there ever been a doctor among the Housewives? According to the Miami Herald, Dr. Karent Sierra–a Colgate Spokesperson who has a passion for being in the public eye–will be joining the ladies, and she is all about proving that she isn’t a famewhore with a low IQ! I guess she did make it through dental school…

Karent is also not a housewife! The dentist to the stars who boasts an impressive clientele among the Miami élite, is still very single, although she has been linked to actor Rodolfo Jimenez. Karent will be joining the line-up with her BFF (think a Lawrence Washington) who will be her partner in crime this season, Miami party-animal and nightlife regular Beau Beasley; who was spotted out with her Saturday night where she dished about joining the cast!

Interestingly, Karent already confirms she was put to the test in some pretend drama when the other ladies gave her the third degree over joining the show for the wrong reasons. Um… why else would anyone join a reality show if they weren’t, you know, interested in being in the public eye. Apparently the fact that Karent came into things with a publicist and is a doctor didn’t sit well with the other girls.

Karent, a former beauty queen who was a first runner-up in the 1993 Miss Florida USA pageant, isn’t worried about it though – she claims she has no plans to get into a trashy altercation and instead will “just kill ‘em with kindness!” We’ll see about that… Further confirming that Karent is joining the cast is a photo of her with the ladies of RHOM at the Southbeach Wine & Food Festival last month. A photo of Dr. Karent Sierra is below!
