Ronnie broke the news that the Jersey Shore couple decided to go separate ways at a Paranormal Activity 3 screening, saying: “We are not together.”
Despite the good times the couple seemed to be experiencing in Italy, things just didn’t work out. “Being in Italy, in such a romantic atmosphere, brought us together,” Ronnie explained to US Weekly. “The first week was rough — everyone was like ‘Oh, my God.’ But [Sammi and I] didn’t fight at all in Italy. [It was] probably the highest point in our relationship.”
I’m pretty sure that any regular viewers of the show expected the couple may not make it for the long haul, especially considering their constant fighting and the allegations of cheating that has plagued the couple.
Ronnie’s co-star Pualy D is however glad the couple has gone their separate ways! “I love single Ronnie!” he enthuses. “When he’s doing the relationship thing, I let him do his thing, I don’t get involved. When he’s with Sammi he’s a different person. She’s a difficult woman!” Nice, Pauly.
So far Sammi hasn’t officially confirmed or denied the break up – or trashed Ronnie publicly in any way. Darn! But she did Tweet: “Thank u to all my fans and supporters u all are amazing! Love u! Xoxo” Ronnie on the otha hand posted a Tweet asking fans for their best breakup line. Oh, dear…
Meanwhile, the 4th season of the Jersey Shore quietly ends tonight on MTV! On tonight’s finale and 12th episode of the season, the gang gets ready to say good-bye to Italy and head back to Seaside Heights but tensions between Mike and the rest of the roommates leave him doubtful that he’ll be joining them back at the Jersey Shore.
The episode airs at 10/9c and will be immediately followed by the season 4 reunion!

THOUGHTS ON THE BREAK UP? HOW LONG DO YOU THINK UNTIL THEY GET BACK TOGETHER? THOUGHTS ON THE FINALE & REUNION?
Today Bethenny Frankel is firing back and furious at all the recent “lies” about her in the press!
Just to rehash the last few months in Skinnygirl Frankel’s magnum opus of falsehoods; Bethenny (who is also being sued by her ex-manager) got caught in a fib about the ingredientzes in her infamous Skinnygirl Margarita, resulting in it being pulled from Whole Foods shelves, which resulted in some additional “fan” lawsuits.
Then she fibbed about how much money she sold said company for. Well she didn’t lie, per se, she just never actually corrected anyone on the $120M number, when it was actually more like $64M. Still, a good chunk of change for schlock.
Finally, Bethenny has been implicated in a lie involving a “lost at sea” shenanigan where she attempted to manipulate the US COAST GUARD for a reality show! Of course, Bethenny is not to blame for any of this! It is irresponsible journalists spewing venomous lies in an attempt to destroy her. Remember: “Everyone wants to tear down a success!”
Now, on to the latest. If you recall, last week the towboat operator who “rescued” the desultory Team Frankel from their adventures at sea (hosted by her therapist) spoke out after Bethenny dissed him on The Ellen Show, claimed she gave him a $2800 tip for his services (which he denies), and then threatened to have sex with him as a thank you. Classy.
Tim Russell, the towboat operator, who rightfully felt offended that Bethenny would jeopardize his business for her own personal gain, explained his version of the events, which dispute nearly all of her accounts. Now I am one for believing there are three versions of every story, but it might be worth mentioning THE US COAST GUARD supports a portion of his recollection, specifically the statement that it was him that aided the group and not the Coast Guard, despite receiving a delusional phone call from someone on Frankel’s boat requesting unnecessary assistance.
And if you remember when Bethenny originally “broke” the story to her fans via Twitter she stated she was lost at sea for hours and RESCUED by the US Coast Guard. Do these Tweets still exist? Indeed they do, for Reality Tea has a screen shot!
Bethenny recently told US Weekly: “My entire brand is based on that [honesty]. I felt like I had a responsibility to my fans to say something,” in response to all the allegations. Perhaps all that saying something is what is getting Bethenny in more and more trouble!
Well yesterday, Bethenny made an appearance on the Today show with poor Matt Lauer where she ranted about people wanting tear her down and gave her opinion on all the lies being told about her. “There are certain people and certain bloggers…they want something to be wrong,” she seethed. “They want it to be that I lie or cheat or I must have done if I can have this success.”
Finally Bethenny confronts lost at sea-gate and she feels the situation was very real and very dangerous. “My sound guy doesn’t know how to swim,” Bethenny explained. “They lost a lot of the tapes because of salt damage…” she also insists some camera batteries were dead. Oh no, a casualty! #getoveryourself.
Granted, a person who does not know how to swim is definitely dangerous on a boat, but does it warrant Coast Guard intervention? Apparently no, because now Bethenny is claiming they were never involved!!
“The towboat man who accused me of lying has been put on a gag order because what he’s effectively saying is that we called the Coast Guard. It’s like calling 911 without an emergency. I’d be in jail probably.” WAIT. HOLD UP – REWIND. Seriously – read that again and then go back and look at the facts.
Bethenny, HERSELF, stated that the coastguard rescued them. The Coast Guard confirms they were called and declined to assist, stating their boat was not in danger. The towboat operator only said just that – the coastguard suggested they call a tow company, which they did, and he helped lead them back to shore. For verification, see the original Tweets below. Perhaps Bethenny is upset that he outed her on making up a story about the GPS being broken because they were essentially trying to manipulate a plot for Bethenny Ever After?
In fact, even Bravo confirms Bethenny’s boat called the Coast Guard, releasing this statement: “The Coast Guard referred a private tow vessel who eventually led their boat out. When people see the episode, they will certainly see for themselves that this was very real.” Whose version of “real”: theirs or mine?
Now Bethenny is blaming Tim Russell for her “mis-rememberings” by issuing a very transparent and pathetic gag order – what is she trying to prevent him from releasing? The truth?
Bethenny went on to bash “irresponsible bloggers” some more and says her outrage is all for her fans, calling the accusations of lies, “all a bunch of nonsense.”
“You have to spend 24 hours of your life defending your honesty to your fans. [These stories are] irresponsible journalism and … a waste of your time,” she lamented to US Weekly over questions about the legitimacy of her stories.
All of this begs to ask the question – Who is crazier: Bethenny or Kelly Bensimon? Because Scary Island is starting seem a little different after learning the lies Bethenny is apparently capable of telling, despite public records disputing them, and most disturbingly that she doesn’t seem to remember the original lies she told!
Maybe she should eat something and put the cocktails down…
SO WHAT DO YOU BELIEVE? IS IT HYPOCRITICAL OF BETHENNY TO SHUT TIM UP? IS BETHENNY TELLING THE TRUTH OR NOT?
On last night’s episode of The Rachel Zoe Project,Rachel and Rodger had some human emotions as Baby Skyler is introduced to the world. It was shocking. And Nice. Keep up the good work guys!
Things start out with Mandana and Joey freaking out about Jeremiah’s firing. Mandana just doesn’t understand why Jers is so upset – I mean he wasn’t fired for incompetence, just for being too talented for the job at hand. Oh and for having dirty nails while touching couture gowns. Joey gets that Jeremiah has the sads and to make-up for it advocates throwing a “sorry for your loss” party.
Mandana grabs coffee with Jeremiah and her eyes glaze over as her “friend” tries to talk to her about how he is feeling post Zoe-pocalypse. She’s just like move on, it’s no big, you had a good attitude – can we talk about ME now? And indeed, Mandana keeps referencing Company Zoe with words like “I” and “Our” Brand. Is it Mandana’s brand or Rachel’s? She who does the most work does not always reap the most reward. But with employees like this it’s no wonder that Rachel feared maternity leave – I also found it ironic that Mandana managed to make a few Brad and Tay jabs while basically announcing she was staging a coup!

Filming for California vineyard owner Ben Flajnik’s season of The Bachelor is still underway and supposedly it contains a few unexpected twists!
ABC is describing their newest hopeless hopeful as “a rare, modern Renaissance man,” who “dabbles in a lot of hobbies and crafts, such as crab fishing, sailing, golf, skate boarding, surfing, playing piano and singing in a tribute band.” Are these supposed to make him attractive to us? Because frankly the only thing that grabs my attention is the word: winemaker.
Ben is also a dog lover who makes it known that any woman he chooses to share his heart with will “also have to share one of his other great loves: his Jack Russell Terrier, Scotch.”
Well now for some spoilers!
Apparently a surprise guest arrives to the first rose ceremony to try and capture Ben’s heart! Reality Steve, of the infamous Bachelor spoiler site, has announced that Shawntel Newton, a finalist from two-time Bachelor failure Brad Womack’s season has developed a crush on Ben and ABC put her in the running for Ben’s heart as a bonus contestant of sorts!
Shawntel, in case you don’t remember, was the funeral director who took Brad on a tour of the mortuary facilities during the Hometown Dates, thus grossing him out so much that she was sent home. Apparently she made it known through the Tweeter that she was into Ben, and was invited to the first cocktail party and rose ceremony but was unfortunately NOT given a rose!
I’m calling producer manipulation on this one! They probably told Shawntel that Ben had a crush on her as well and would be psyched about her interest only for it to be used as a ratings grab. Some people are too nice for reality TV and my guess is that Ben and Shawntel are two of them. A photo of Shawntel is below.
THOUGHTS ON THE NEW SEASON OF THE BACHELOR AND BEN? THOUGHTS ON SHAWNTEL’S SURPRISE VISIT? DESPERATE OR OKAY?
On last night’s episode of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, the ladies just couldn’t seem to get along and Brandi was again an outsider with only Adrienne and Taylor willing to be her friend – but only when no one else was looking! It kinda reminded me of Heathers! Watch your drink, Kyle!
Game night continues to rage on at Dana’s. Brandi tries to call a “Time-Out” but the Richards are in full attack mode, Winston Churchill be damned; they subscribe to Napoleonic tactics! Kyle is still upset Brandi let her son pee on Adrienne’s grass – ok, it’s tacky, but c’mon! Brandi is furious that Kyle is talking about her kids, but Kyle is actually talking about Brandi’s bad mothering!
Camille admits Kyle can be a B-I-T-C-H. Sick of the Richards’ superior attitude, a sniffling Brandi snaps that everyone else is trailer park and they’re Queens of England. Um…no, Kim redirects, only Brandi is trailer park! And Kyle’s not wearing a tiara! Duh! Well, I kinda think Kyle wears one at home when no one is looking, don’t you?

Kelly Bensimon just has so much cray-cray to spew forth into the world I can’t keep up! In her newest round of inane interviews, Kelly dispenses some unique and special advice to Real Housewives of New York’s newest housewives and reflects on her own experiences on the show! Oh and she talks about getting FIRED!
“I’m not angry,” Kelly explained to PEOPLE in regards to being terminated. “I had a great opportunity. I mean, three years! Three years I’m on television. … The show is on all over the world and we’re still going to be on for a long time. It’s like the Baywatch of Housewives. For me, it’s just the gift that keeps on giving.” Baywatch of Housewives? I just can’t…
“I have a really kooky life and I’m not going to make apologies for it. I have a lot of fun and I make a lot of mistakes,” she describes of her experiences on the show. You can say that again!
The good news is Kelly seems understanding about being let-go; which is a great attitude (ahem, Silex!). “The show started off in one way and it needs to take a different direction because that’s the nature of the TV beast,” Kelly mused. “I’m excited to watch it. It’s going to be great.”
As for the new ladies, who Bravo has yet to announce, Kelly explains: “I don’t know them, but I’m sure they’re going to be very interesting, lovely women.” She also has some advice for the newest housewives: Anything she would do, do the opposite! Kidding, kidding!
“Make as many mistakes as possible,” she advised. “Do anything that you can do that you can learn from your mistakes. Because if you don’t learn from your mistakes then you’re what? Boring!” Yeah, but is boring better or worse than insane?
Kelly also assures us her career in reality TV is far from over! “I love doing reality because for me, I just have a really good time,” Kelly revealed, seemingly forgetting about Scary Island and that whole “systematic bullying” thing. “I just want to keep growing and showing my kids that out of anything bad comes something great.”
In other fired housewives news, the unstoppableJill Zarin is writing a book! After a fan Tweeted Jill enquiring if she was writing a tell-all, Jill replied: “Starting to write down the truth!” Actually if Jill wrote a tell-all, I would definitely read it!
Jill, who has been quite the busy little Tweeter lately, has also pledged her support to Teresa Giudice after Sunday night’s explosive reunion, giving credence to the three against one drama and seconding the rumor that Teresa had no idea Melissa Gorga and Kathy Wakile were on the show until after her contract was signed!
When a fan voiced their opinion that Bravo put Teresa’s family on the show for drama, Jill agreed, stating “100 percent true. @Teresa_Giudice had no idea till contract signed” Jill is fighting mad!
Jill also revealed that her salary was the reason Bravo decided to fire her! When a fan Tweeted:“@BravoTV couldn’t afford Jill Zarin anymore. Money can’t buy you class,” Jill responded: “Exactly! You are the first to figure out!”
THOUGHTS ON KELLY BENSIMON’S ADVICE TO THE NEWEST LADIES OF RHONY? WOULD YOU WATCH KELLY ON ANOTHER REALITY SHOW? ARE YOU SURPRISED JILL ZARIN IS PLANNING TO WRITE A TELL-ALL? ARE YOU EXCITED (OR IS THAT JUST ME)?
Kim Kardashian’s love life just never seems to work out – it’s just one unfortunate situation after another for the notorious sex-tape star and this time her marriage to Kris Humphries-Kardashian may be in big-time trouble! Their marriage has been plagued by rumors of tension since day one and it seems like things aren’t improving for the couple!
Life & Style is reporting that Kim is “miserable” and she and Kris are always fighting. In fact, Kim was recently overheard complaining to a friend over mani-pedis at Clover Nails in NYC, that she “didn’t know marriage was going to be so hard.” Wait – wasn’t she married before?
“With all this travel and work, it’s been a big adjustment for both of us,” she lamented. Further breaking the couple apart is Kim’s impending travels to Dubai and Australia. Unfortunately Kris is “not invited!” “She’s leaving him behind,” a source reveals.
Apparently mere months after her publicity stunt wedding, Kim wants to cry time-out on her marriage! “She doesn’t feel like she’s ready for the commitment,” a friend confided to the magazine. “Kim feels this all happened too soon, that she didn’t take the time to get to know Kris. She’s embarrassed – she rushed into things, and now she’s stuck.” Yikes.
Additionally Kim fears Kris used her for fame just like she used him for money and publicity.“Kim is definitely worried that Kris isn’t mature enough and could be using her for her money – especially since he’s not working right now with the NBA lockout,” according to a source from Kourtney & Kim Take New York(that’s a show?).
His immaturity combined with no certainty about where the couple is going to put down roots as they wait for Kris to sign with a basketball team, has forced Kim to put her baby-making plans on hold. Kim is apparently very dissatisfied that the couple has no real home and is currently living in a fancy hotel in NYC. The horror!
The source reveals Kim wishes she could participate in traditional wifely duties, like cooking Kris meals, but he would rather ditch her for burgers with his buddies. Makes sense to me – can she even talk about anything but herself?!
However, let’s get real here, their marital problems actually lie in Kim’s fears that Kris is upstaging her in the reality TV world! “He tries to have creative input in Kourtney & Kim Take New York. It’s her show, and he tries to dominate it.” She’s the number one famewhore in this relationship – not him!
Perhaps Kim is holding off on filing for the big D until they can cash all the million dollar checks they amassed in her big Made-For-TV, fantasy wedding! At least she can console herself by snuggling her Benjamins!

THOUGHTS ON KIM’S MARITAL WOES? ANOTHER PUBLICITY STUNT OR IS THE COUPLE HEADED FOR DIVORCE?
Last night’s Real Housewives of New Jersey reunion from hell gave me stress-induced anxiety, like for real! I could not guzzle the wine fast enough! The rage was palpable and the ladies were down right dirty. This made RHONY’s reunion seem almost tolerable. Did I just type that?!
First of all, does anyone remember that notorious website Socialite Rank? Well, I wish we had a website devoted to Housewives Ranking, called of course, Housewives Rank, because if we did TheCaroline and Teresa would be neck and neck for bottom of the heap after last night’s dreadful performance! Melissa had her moments of dirty as well, and for the most part Kathy kept her hands clean and imagined beautiful beaches and escape. Me too, Kath!
*Simple Disclaimer – I am a woman without a housewife – I play no favorites. I participate in equal opportunity snarking. All the ladies are ridiculous to a degree (yes, some more than others) and I like to spread the snark around!
