On last night’s episode of Real Housewives of Beverly Hillsa little bit fun and fancy came back to us as the ladies sans Taylor embarked on a trip to Hawaii. Luckily, Loony Lips’ drama wasn’t far behind as she called mid-beach to let everyone know she had ditched her hubs for greener pastures. Hey, I heard Mohammed is single! What about that Martin? Kim also missed the show, but Brandi was there in her stead and ready for a full-frontal close-up! That was some bikini!
Things begin as The White Party rages on! Moments after Kyle and co. have kicked Taylor and Russell out for threatening to sue Camille, the ladies reconvene in the all-white living room to break down the situation again for the umpteenth time. Is she or isn’t she? Lying that is! No one seems to know what to believe. Even Taylor’s BFF is pretty mute about the situation. Adrienne is still pretty pissed that Taylor involved the ladies in all this mess — which I’m pretty sure she thinks is nonsense. Only Dana readily believes her BFFL. Hey girl wants to stay on RHOBH!

It’s Kardashian Time! This time the topik of the day is Khloe Kardashian — which makes it slightly more bearable. Sorry — I have a slight bias towards the most normal of the bunch. The Keeping Up With Kardashians star is talking about marriage — most specifically how much she values her husband Lamar Odom, whom she married in 2009, and why she will do anything to support him (unlike some members of her family…).
Klearly trying to distract from all of her sister Kim Kardashian‘s divorce nonsense and prove that not all of the Kardashians are maritally impaired, Khloe shares that she is gladly moving to Dallas to support her man after his trade to the Mavericks.
In a new article for Life & Style, Khloe explains what makes her marriage work. “Many people have judged me, but I don’t care how it looks to someone else,” Khloe dished on their unconventional decision to get married a month after meeting at a party. “We planned our wedding in nine days. It’s not what a lot of people consider ideal, but for us, it was perfect. I really wouldn’t have done it any other way.”
The couple has worked hard to make their relationship successful and that includes putting petty differences aside, supporting each others’ goals and Lamar maintaining a relationship with his very involved mother-in-law Kris Jenner. He reportedly sends KRIS flowers on he and Khloe’s wedding anniversary. Weird, but ok.
Khloe believes the secret to her marital success is making her husband her no. 1 priority. You mean, it’s not her “career”? In addition to that, Khloe and Lamar have decided not to go more than a week without seeing each other. And that included her immediately packing up and moving to Dallas six-days after Lamar’s NBA trade. “I’ve never lived anywhere else but LA, but I’m willing to make that adjustment for my family.” Wow — could she be anymore different from Kimmie? “I have the luxury to have my work follow me,” Khloe shares.
Khloe even missed out on Mason‘s second birthday and spending holidays with her family to support Lamar courtside in her new home state. The couple reportedly signed a $7,500 a month lease on a luxury two-bedroom condo in Dallas that Khloe quickly decorated in time for Christmas. Luckily for all of us the film crew for the couple’s reality show Khloe & Lamar was able to capture ever minute of the hectic move! Thank goodness!
Additionally, Lamar is definitely appreciative of his wife’s support. “Sometimes there’s so much going on from the outside looking in people don’t really understand that there is a lot of normalcy there, too,” he explains. And despite all the changes, Khloe is still happily in love. “We are completely content,” she shares. “And that’s the best feeling in the world.”
While everything is happy in Khloe-land the reality star is about to get Punk’d by Miley Cyrus and Kelly Osborne! The popular MTV show produced by Ashton Kutcher returns this March and Khloe will be the unsuspecting victim of a prank.
In a just released sneak peak, Miley explains the set up, “She thinks she’s going to have girls hangout time and order food, and when the delivery guy shows up, he’s going to ask to use my bathroom, he’s going to get his [genitals] zipped into the zipper of his pants. Khloe, you’re getting punk’d!”
Predictably since she’s used to crazy given her familial connections, Khloe handles it calmly and immediately calls 911 to help the man out. Check out the hilarious clip below! Khloe’s episode of Punk’d airs March 19th on MTV!

NeNe Leakes has been quite mysterious about her love life on the Tweets lately. She posted a series of pics featuring very flashy gifts “he” gave her and is not giving away who “he” is. NeNe Tweeted: “Diamonds r a girls best friend & they just keep comin & comin & comin.”
Rumors have been circulating for months that The NeNe has been dating Famous Famiglia owner John Kolaj after NeNe opened her own franchise of the restaurant earlier this year and has been spotted out and about with the businessman. Is NeNe dating John or are they merely very friendly business associates?
Perhaps yes, but neither one of them is willing to give anything away. John recently admitted to WetPaint that he was indeed the giver of NeNe’s many gifts — including a Hermes Birkin, some Louboutins and some serious diamonds. “Absolutely, I gave her that ring! It’s 8 carats. I gave her a set of diamond earrings, too,” John readily enthused. As for the Louboutins, John added that yes, “I got her a few pairs.”
As for why John is showering NeNe with gifts that make any woman melt, John explains, “Nene Leakes is a smart, amazing woman who is a dear friend of mine, and I hope she’s in my life for a very, very long time.” However, when asked if he was dating NeNe, John merely replied “no comment.”
NeNe also played coy as to the nature of her relationship with John, telling Us Weekly, “He’s been flirting with me.” But the Glee star did seem to admit that they have some sort of relationship, telling the mag: “I’m not saying he’s The One, but he has a lot of the qualities I’m looking for.” And what might those qualities be? According to NeNe, “He’s very wealthy!”
NeNe has yet to file for divorce from husband Gregg Leakes, who she has been seen with around town recently. NeNe has repeatedly stated the divorce is happening, but their relationship remains amicable. NeNe is technically separated from her husband and who knows if she will go through with the actual divorce! In the meantime she’s been paling around with John.
So, who is John? He is a successful businessman who grew up in the Bronx and opened a chain of Italian fast food restaurants with his brothers. They now own over 140 franchises — including one NeNe opened last year. Viewers first saw John on an episode of Real Housewives of Atlanta when NeNe went on a cringe-inducing business lunch with the very over-the-top John. NeNe seemed mortified, disgusted, intrigued and then she said she liked him! A photo of NeNe and John out on the town is below.
Well, John promises that won’t be the last of him on the show. “I think I’m in three or four more episodes,” he reveals. “I’m not getting paid, and I’m not interested in the fame. I just feel lucky and blessed to be spending time with NeNe.” Oh, my…
And if you’re wondering what NeNe did for NYE — she apparently celebrated in Miami at P.Diddy‘s infamous bash! Diddy has made no secret of his NeNe love and demonstrated his affections by inviting her to his huge celeb-studded fete. Also in attendance were Rhianna, Vivica A. Fox, and Queen Latifah. NeNe confirmed her attendance, tweeting: “As I ring n the New Year wit my boy @iamdiddy @ his home! I’m so Blessed! Happy New Year 2 all”
According to Tamra Tattles, NeNe showed up dateless, but looked cute. A photo of NeNe at the bash is below. Wow — maybe the other ladies do have a reason to be jealous of NeNe’s success!
IS NENE DATING JOHN OR IS THIS A PUBLICITY STUNT? CAN YOU BELIEVE NENE WAS INVITED TO P.DIDDY’S NEW YEARS BASH?

Brad left Rachel last year and to hear her tell it he ditched her five minutes before the Oscars after stealing half of her client load and 3/4 of her couture department yet the newly independent Brad has his own version of how their split went.
Speaking to The Daily Beast, Brad discusses his new show and the departure from Zoe, Inc. “I think people will be surprised to see that when I left I didn’t have a ton of work,” he says of the first episode of his show where he is seen putzing around and searching for jobs — which is very different from Rachel’s styling oriented show The Rachel Zoe Project, filled with apparent manufactured drama. Brad says that’s about the most drama you’ll get from him, “I’m not a table-flipper,” he laughs.
Speaking of Rachel — just what went wrong between the former besties? According to Rachel, Brad told her he wanted to leave the high-paced styling world to live a quiet life with his boyfriend of ten-years, Gary, but then stabbed her in the back by immediately starting his own company and snagging his own show.
Brad’s side of the story is very different (and frankly sounds more plausible). Carefully explaining his perspective and maintaining that he wants to take the high road, Brad is aghast at how Rachel chose to demean him on TV. “I think it’s unfortunate that she decided to take the angle that she did because it’s not the truth.”
“It’s unfortunate that all of the time that I spent with her, and the many lengthy conversations that we had discussing my departure from working with her, that she would choose to character assassinate me on television.” Brad claims he gave Rachel two and a half months notice, trained his replacement (the invisible Jordan?) and even stayed longer to finish uncompleted jobs.
“I just think it’s unfortunate that she feels so competitive with me in a way,” he muses. “Because I left to create a name for myself – and not to ride on any of her coattails.” Brad wouldn’t say why he has been keeping mum about the dissolution of their relationship or if he signed a non-disclosure agreement with the company upon leaving, but he does want to clear his name that he isn’t a client or clothing stealer.
A similar thing happened with another of Rachel’s assistants, Taylor Jacobson, who claims she left the company amicably while Rachel and Rodger continue to slander her to the press and accuse her of stealing. Taylor, like Brad, never really spoke out about the realities of leaving, save to say it wasn’t how Rachel is construing things.
“She’s so incredibly successful, that a stylist starting out – I don’t know what kind of threat that is to her. Maybe she thinks I’m incredibly talented. Who knows,” Brad says of Rachel. Personally, I think she is jealous that Brad’s cheerful and fun personality took off with fans making him the more famous of the two.
“I did reach out to her numerous times, and there was never any response back,” Brad reveals, adding that they often are together at fashion shows and events, but Rachel ignores him. Mature, much?
As for Rachel’s allegations that he tried to steal some of her clients, Brad insists that is not the case. “That’s not the truth. And she knows that’s not the truth. I didn’t even say goodbye to a lot of her clients because I didn’t want anything to be misconstrued as me soliciting anybody.” Brad has styled former Rachel client Demi Moore, but claims Demi sought him out.
“Maybe one day we’ll be able to speak again, but if she chooses to not, then I guess that’s the way it has to be,” he explains. “People are saying, ‘What’s the problem?’ There is no problem from my side. I don’t have any problems with her.”
Rachel clearly does not agree because when asked for comments Rodger Berman (Rachel’s hubs) released the following statement: “Rachel and Rodger are amused by his convenient interpretation of events and have no additional comments.” Wow, Rachel needs to get over herself.
Regardless of the fallout, Brad is glad he got the opportunity. He says Rachel taught him that “it’s possible to do both styling and the show at the same time, but I learned so many more things from her about styling, and working in fashion, and being kind to people.”
And he is optimistic about the future. He is currently styling Christina Ricci and Rashida Jones, getting ready for awards season and he just signed a deal to work with Kate Spade!

WHAT DO YOU THINK OF THE BRAD VS. RACHEL SPLIT? WHO DO YOU BELIEVE? DID YOU WATCH IT’S A BRAD, BRAD WORLD? THOUGHTS?
Guess what time it is!? Kim K time! The beleaguered reality star who simply has nothing to do but run around seeking attention had quite the eventful year — she got married, she got divorced, she got annihilated for supposedly making $17M off that whole shebang and, then, she discovered she was a whole new person by visiting Haiti to shop for charity. But we already know all that — let’s focus on 2012 — it’s a whole new year for Kimmie Kakes and a new year brings new attention seeking behavior!
Now that she doesn’t have her over-the-top marriage to make people interested in her, Kim is apparently looking to pull a Sandy B. and adopt a baby as a single woman. Yes, this is news. And no, I didn’t make it up.
In Touch Weekly is reporting that while Kim visited Haiti last month under the pretense of volunteering with We Advance, Maria Bello‘s charity, she also paid a special visit to a Haitian orphanage! “She wants to adopt a Haitian baby, and she wants to do it as soon as possible,” an insider reports adding that Kim thinks becoming a mommy will be the perfect way to fix her damaged reputation!
Kim apparently believes adopting will give her an “earth-mother” appeal that will endear her fans. I mean look how well it worked for Angelina Jolie! Kim’s friend claims, “She’s telling friends she wants to adopt because of the awful living conditions she saw in Haiti, but it’s pretty obvious she’s only doing it to revive her image.” This newest stunt apparently has friends jokingly calling Kim “Mother Theresa.”
Kim’s friend worries that the self-absorbed independent 31-year-old Kim who couldn’t even share a closet with her husband isn’t ready to assume mommy-duties. “The idea of dirty diapers makes her gag,” Kim’s pal snarks. “She’s not ready to have a baby at all — she’s so focused on herself,” a friend explains. “She’s even said that she’s too into her career to have a baby.”
Indeed, Kim had that same fight with then husband Kris Humphries on her reality show Kourtney and Kim Take New York. This begs the question — Is Kim really so delusional as to consider standing on the red carpet and whining on camera a real career?
Another friend points out that Kim’s supposed adoration of her nephew Mason, 2, is all staged for the cameras and that Kim is actually disinterested in the toddler. “Kim treats him like an accessory, not a baby.”
“She plays with him when she’s posing for pictures, but otherwise she’s always too busy texting to have anything to do with him,” a friend insists. None of this seems to matter to Kim, who believes a baby will save her image and leave the public viewing her as a kind, compassionate and loving person. Kim has a need to be loved the mag reports and seeks validation from the public.
Moving right along the new and improved Kim rang in the new year by hosting a New Year’s Eve party at Tao in Las Vegas! Kim reportedly received $600,000 to grace fans (who paid $200 a pop) with her presence at the popular night club. That $600k can feed a lot of Haitians, Kim! Kim’s desperate for the spotlight Pimpmomager Kris Jenner also came along with her since she’s got no man to speak of.
The party was apparently packed — surprisingly. “It’s a tradition to ring in the new year here at Tao!,” Kim told The Hollywood Reporter. To go with her new image, Kim debuted some new bangs which she sported with a skin-tight white Gucci mini dress.
“I am ready to move forward and not look back. I learned a lot of about myself this past year and at the end of the day you always have to trust your gut,” Kim told THR of 2011. “You’ve got to believe in love. I still do.” Photos of Kim and Kris at Tao are below!

Amber Portwood continues to remain in Indiana’s Madison County Jail after spending the holidays there, but things are not going well for the reality star who is now on suicide watch.
Amber is expected to stay behind bars until January 27th after she was locked up for probation violations and being found with over 40 pills for a controlled substance. According to sources, Amber, who testified last week that she felt “exploited” by appearing on Teen Mom and wants off the show, is being brutally harassed while incarcerated for her appearance on the reality show!
MailOnline is reporting that the 21-year-old Amber is having a horrible experience behind bars — which is the idea since it’s, you know, a punishment. “She’s barely eaten or had any sleep in over a week and she’s constantly being harassed in jail because of Teen Mom,” an insider reports.
“Amber thought because she was a celebrity she’d get out of jail within a few hours like Lindsay Lohan, but she definitely had a wake up call and hasn’t stopped crying since being locked up.” Unfortunately, Circuit Court Judge David Happe decided Amber should stay in the facility until her next hearing.
Faced with a month in jail (and possibly more) Amber has become more “depressed and alone” than ever after being constantly made fun of by other inmates. “She has barely eaten or slept in a full week after one girl purposely knocked over her food tray and another inmate threw toilet water in her face while she was trying to sleep.”
“Amber has already been moved twice from two other cell blocks because all the inmates were threatening her and she was scared she’d get beat up,” the insider continues. Because of the pressures she is now facing behind bars, “Amber recently told the guard if she was sent to prison she would kill herself which put the Teen Mom on temporary suicide watch.”
Adding to her volatile situation an insider reports that the “really depressed” Amber is without her psych meds because the jail allegedly “won’t give her any prescription medication for her anxiety.” Even worse for poor Amber she had no visitors on Christmas Day since she is only allowed visitors on Saturdays and Christmas fell on Sunday this year. Her mother Tonya has been her only visitor since her stay and she has not seen her daughter.
Amber reportedly called her ex-boyfriend Gary Shirley, but the conversation did not go well. “Amber called Gary and Leah on Christmas morning and had a meltdown on the phone after hearing Gary’s new girlfriend was spending the holiday with her daughter,” the insider revealed. “She cursed out Gary saying it was his fault she was in jail, but Gary told Amber she got what she deserved and hung up on her.”
“Amber feels threatened that she is being replaced as Leah’s mom and she didn’t even have a chance to buy her daughter Christmas gifts before going to jail.”
“Gary thinks Amber being in jail for a long period of time is a good thing for her, he thinks she needs to finally learn her lesson and suffer the consequences.” Amber’s mother does not agree — she believes leaving reality TV behind is the right choice for Amber and that to get her life back on track she needs to leave the show. She is working vehemently to get Amber released from her MTV contract!
“Amber’s mom [Tonya] said the only way she’ll help her get out is if she quits the show so they’re currently negotiating with MTV trying to get her out of her contract,” the insider adds. “I really think this is the final straw for Amber, she’s quitting Teen Mom for good.” A photo of Amber and Tonya leaving court is below.

Despite reports that Kim Richardschecked out of rehab and was pursuing out-patient care, a new report now reveals she never left, though she did attempt to leave.
Us Weekly is reporting that theReal Housewives of Beverly Hills star has decided to stay in rehab — with some difficulty. “Kim tried to leave and she ended up coming back,” an insider explains. “She is and was being very defiant and is obviously not having the easiest time.”
Kim, 47, initially checked into treatment earlier this month after supposedly being encouraged by Bravo to get help or lose her position on the show. Previous reports stated Bravo was forced to edit out a majority of Kim’s film from this season because her behavior was too erratic and it was obvious something was amiss.
Even if she completes her stay in rehab sources close to Kim are claiming the show is an unhealthy environment for the fragile Kim and she will have tremendous difficulty remaining sober if she continues with reality TV.
This will be Kim’s second time voluntarily entering rehab since 2010. Last year, she checked herself in following the explosive RHOBH finale where Kyle Richards accused her of being an “alcoholic.” That stint was apparently very brief and Kim was said to have left after only a few days.
Kim’s sister, Kyle, paid a visit this week and posted a photo of the two of them on Twitter — Perhaps Kyle’s visit was to encourage Kim to remain in treatment and get the care she needs? “Kim’s alcohol addiction along with other substance abuse problems has been obvious for quite some time,” an insider reveals. “It’s really good that she’s finally getting help.”
One reason her family and friends are so happy Kim is seeking help is her tumultuous relationship with Ken Blumenfeld. “No one likes Ken,” a source close to the Richards tells UsWeekly. “He’s controlling and tells her what to do.” Kim was allegedly homeless and staying with a friend when she made the decision to enter treatment after several fights with Ken forced her to leave the home they shared.
Kyle has made no secret of her dislike and distrust of the relationship and has even said on the show that Kim’s children think Ken is controlling. The magazine adds that none of Kim’s castmates like Ken and still haven’t warmed to his quiet demeanor. On the last episode of RHOBH Kim was seen counseling her children to get along with Ken at Kyle’s White Party and keep their comments to themselves if they were unhappy with him. Recent speculation has claimed that Kim and Ken are no longer together.
On the last episode viewers also watched a very vocal and over-the-top Kim confront castmate Brandi Glanville; basically telling her they will never ever be friends because Kim doesn’t like her after she accused Kim of using meth! Well, apparently the two still don’t get along and have never exactly patched things up. “Kim and Brandi are still not friends,” an RHOBH insider declares. “They just do not like each other.”

WHAT DO YOU THINK – IS KIM STILL IN REHAB? SHOULD BRAVO ALLOW KIM TO REMAIN ON THE SHOW? SHOULD KIM AND BRANDI GET OVER THEIR PETTINESS AND PUT THE PAST BEHIND THEM?
Jacqueline took to Twitter (Where else?) to debunk the rumors claiming she is still deciding if she wants to return. “Thats not true.Its all undecided rght now but Im considering it if everythings in the rght place.Lets say theres talk right now.”
There’s been some rumors circulating from purported insiders that Jacqueline’s salary will be reduced if she is brought back for Season 5 and Bravo is basing her inclusion on whether or not they find a suitable Housewife to replace her. Jacqueline notoriously skipped the vengeful Season 3 reunion claiming she was feeling sick, which is a MAJOR no, no. Multiple reports have stated Bravo can no longer trust her, hence their reason for wanting to fire her. I guess we’ll see what happens!
Moving right along, Kathy Wakile recently did an interview with The Norton Report where she talked about her decision to come on the show and what’s next for her.
Explaining what motivated her to join RHONJ (besides the obvious), Kathy reveals: “I was at a point in my life where I wanted to do something outside of the house. I had been a stay-at-home mom for 17 years, my kids don’t need me as much, and it was at a time where they needed to realize I have to start doing some things on my own.”
“I thought, should I go out and get a job? And this opportunity just really fell into my lap at the same time,” she adds. “It really all fell at the right time, especially for my kids who are older and can handle being in the spotlight. It’s been a fun adventure.”
“I’ve had a lot of fun, I’ve done different things I wouldn’t normally be doing, interacting with new people and it’s just been a great experience so far.” I’m not sure how a huge, embarrassing family feud played out in a public arena is a great experience, but whatevs!
Kathy also talks about her role as a mediator amongst the cast: “Well, I’ve always been a good listener. I believe in order to be able to help people with conflict you really need to listen to what they’re saying. If you’re doing all the talking, you’re not getting all the facts. Being a good listener really is the number one component to being able to help.”
“I don’t like conflict so I like to create balance and try to understand everyone’s point of view. I always try never to hurt anyone’s feelings; we’re all imperfect so unfortunately that happens sometimes, but my intentions are always good.” For someone who doesn’t like conflict she sure got a raw deal with the family situation! Yikes.
Interesting that Kathy did not mention her cousin Teresa once during the interview! I hope these two truly are mending fences and building a stronger family relationship.
And since Kathy is now a member of the Bravo Home Shopping Network we can expect a whole host of products from the kitchen-savvy Housewife. Kathy lets us know that a prepared cocktail, a Goddess jewelry line and a dessert collection are all in the works. Ugh.
Finally, Christmas never ends for the Giudices! Teresa recently took to her website to post photos of her girl’s Christmas gifts. She thanks fans for giving her suggestions. It looks like a pretty modest Christmas for a family that has recently withdrawn their bankruptcy filing and agreed to repay their creditors the old fashioned way, with you know their own money.
“Thank you all for your suggestions on what to get my kids for Christmas! They didn’t really ask for anything and aren’t crazy for any fads right now, but I got them things that match what they’re into, and just girl stuff,” Teresa wrote.
“Audriana got a pink tricycle and a pink and white polka dot baby doll carriage. Milania got a little vanity with a make-up case. Since Gabriella is so into art, I got her an art table, one of those with the roll of paper attached to the side and art supplies. And Gia got a little laptop.”
Teresa also included an adorable picture of Gia dressed up like Santa Claus. “So every year someone in our family dresses up like Santa on Christmas Eve,” she explained. “You saw on the show that last year it was my mom.” All the photos of the Giudice Christmas activities are below.
In other news Melissa Gorga, currently in Miami to host a New Years Eve party, appears to have gotten some “work” done on her lips. In recent pics of the NJ housewife, her lips appear to me much fuller but we’ll let you be the judge! Those pics of Melissa, all from this month, are below!
