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 Kardashiansstar 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!

The Tamra Barney / Gretchen Rossi fauxlationship was ever so brief. The two, who were professing their love for each other mere weeks ago, are now, well – kaput! Dang, I only got to use Tamretchen for, like, five minutes.
Yesterday it emerged that Gretchen likely pedaled a story to TMZ accusing Tamra of planning her engagement to Eddie Judge, because Bravo shelled out for a ring and a romantic vacay to capture the proposal as an addition to this season’s storyline. Tamra apparently believed Gretchen was the culprit of the leak as she as spent the last twenty-four hours blowing up Twitter saying as much.
In response to all the drama, Tamra took to Facebook to thank her fans for support during these accusations. “Thanks for all my fans that posted positive comments. After a day of negative energy its time to turn it around. So I am drinking a Corona Light and cooking tacos with my kids waiting for my Hot Latin fiance to get home.”
Tamra also thanked Bravo for denying the story alleging that they bribed Eddie to pop the question! “Again Thank you Bravo for your support! To have people that want to tear you down when you are so happy is hurtful,” she added.
On Twitter, Tamra has done nothing short of accusing Gretchen of being responsible. In one of her cryptic tweets, Tamra revealed that she knew who was responsible but wasn’t ready to reveal. “it is very hurtful and I know who did it,” she wrote “Trust me it will come out..time.” Here’s betting the Real Housewives of Orange County reunion will be giving this matter a lot of attention!
And, for those of you speculating Vicki Gunvalsonhad anything to do with the story, Tamra flat-out denied it. Personally, I definitely do not see Vicki doing something like that – particularly since she and Tamra are now business partners in their new venture, Wines by Wives. We all know work and money are Vicki’s life and she wouldn’t jeopardize that opportunity!
In response to the insinuations, Gretchen has spent a lot of time defending herself. Gretchen adamantly denies she had anything to do with the story about Tamra and maintains that the two are in a good place. “Today was a tough day, can’t say thank you enough for always showing such support and love towards me. Love u all so much! Xoxo,” she tweeted.
Gretchen will be appearing on CNN this evening where she promises to set the record straight about her relationship with Tamra and the TMZ story. What on earth CNN is doing interviewing Gretchen is a mystery to me – must be a really, realllllllly slow news day. Like, did news completely stop happening?
Tamra was due to appear with Gretchen, but in light of the situation canceled! “we were both to be on CNN today together about something else. I am way to upset to go! lets see if she does the right thing?,” Tamra commented. Wowzers!
Moving on, Heather Dubrow is speaking out about last week’s Bunko meltdown with Alexis Bellino. “It seemed like Alexis was itching for a fight the whole night. . . I feel like I have been attacked by Alexis since we met, and I’m not sure why,” Heather shares in her Bravo blog.
“But when she got Terry [Dubrow] involved, I couldn’t stand by and watch. He had no idea who was being discussed (how would he know that Gretchen calls her “Lex”). Pick on me all you want, but you DON’T mess with my man!”
And despite getting off on the wrong Louboutin clad foot, Heather says Alexis has apologized and things are good between them. “I would like to say that Alexis sent me a very sweet text message the next day. She said she overreacted and felt bad about what happened. I thought that was great, I appreciated it.”
Finally, tonight marks an all-new episode of Real Housewives of Orange County. And everyone is in surgery! Alexis recovers from her nose job, Briana gets the results of her biopsy, and Tamra consults her doctor about a breast reduction! See a preview for the new episode below!
Real Housewives of Orange County airs on Bravo tonight at 9/10c

On last night’s episode of Bethenny Ever After, Jason and Bethenny experienced therapy at sea and got lost among the waves. Luckily, their marriage survived intact!
First of all, let me say that the concept of sailing into your future is horrible and cliché. Yuck. Bethenny and Jason pick up where they left off last week, with Jason storming off the heliport. Bethenny just wanted an apology, but for some reason was unable to bring this up at home, before leaving, before the cameras were rolling. Hmmm… I wonder why?
Jason eventually agrees to get on the helicopter and go on the trip. Bethenny apparently spends the ride crying about her life, and when they meet up with Veronica–Bethenny’s “glammy”–in Nantucket to drop off Bryn, Bethenny fills her in on what happened. Question: Doesn’t Bethenny have a full-time nanny? Why is her hairdresser babysitting for the weekend? Why is Bryn always being watched by a zillion different Bethenny sycophants?

Kris Jenner‘s plan to turn her daughters into a reality television famwehore konglomerate may finally be coming to an end. The older girls are besieged by drama and relationship troubles, and now husband Bruce Jenner is finally– finally–putting his foot down about her pimping out younger daughters Kendall and Kylie; leaving them to befall the same fates as their older sisters.
The National Enquirer–which can be surprisingly accurate and on-point with uncovering hot stories first–is reporting that the Jenner marriage is all but over due to Kris’ out of control ambition and promoting her teenaged daughters as sex objects to continue with the Kardashian reality dynasty!
For years, viewers have wondered what the heck is wrong with Bruce for letting her get away with this nonsense, and apparently Bruce has been quietly simmering behind the scenes. After a recent blow-up with Kris, Bruce packed his bags and stormed out, accusing her of turning his daughters into “Kardashian Robots!” According to insiders, Bruce has “had it with Kris’ manipulative ways and packed his bags and left.”
The devastating fight over his daughters’ futures came after their appearance on America’s Next Top Model where they posed for provocative photos dressed as the twins from The Shining. Bruce, rightfully, felt the shot and the portrayal was inappropriate and called Kris out on using their children. In fact, her desperate need for fame is putting her twenty-year marriage in serious jeopardy as Bruce is at the end of his rope!
After Bruce left, Kris called him repeatedly to no avail and he refused to tell her where he was. “Kris was crying hysterically when she finally got Bruce on his cell phone,” the insider recounts. “She sobbed that she was sorry for everything and if he came back they could get their marriage back on track.”
Bruce has never been too interested in reality television, maintaining a mostly low profile on Keeping Up With The Kardashians and not letting fame go to his head – well, except for that facelift Kris forced him to get! But now that Kris is ardently throwing their younger daughters into the spotlight, shilling their images out in sexy poses and outfits everywhere, he is starting to see the repercussions of letting her be in charge.
“The marriage started spinning out of control when Kris started pushing Kendall and Kylie to follow in Kim, Kourtney, and Khloe‘s footsteps as hypersexualized reality starlets,” an insider tells The National Enquirer (via their print edition). “When Bruce put his foot down, Kris just laughed and pointed a finger in his face and barked, ‘I’m the boss here, buddy!’”
“Bruce is fed up with his wife’s cold, bloodless ambition for the children,” the insider discloses. “Their marriage is in tatters. He just said that she needed help big-time.” Bruce eventually came home following their gigantic fight, but all is not well. “They’re barely speaking to each other. Bruce told her that ambition is in her blood like a disease.”
Adding fuel to rumors that their marriage is in trouble, was Bruce’s absence at step-son Rob Kardashian‘s recent Las Vegas birthday celebration!
Indeed, while has Kris focused on building a reality television dynasty she has been completely ignoring Bruce and her marriage – and he is ready to call it quits! Kris is reportedly desperate to keep up appearances and reconnect with Bruce. “They talked about marriage therapy as a last-ditch effort to avoid divorce,” the insider shares. “There’s really very little left in the marriage to save.”
Kris doesn’t want to give up just yet. “She desperately wants him back,” but Bruce is still reeling from a year of horrible family drama – particularly Kris’ revelations in her book Kris Jenner… and All Things Kardashian. Bruce was furious to learn all the intimate details of her affair and that she kept in touch with her adultery partner, Todd Waterman, after Bruce and Kris married!
“If Bruce and Kris’ marriage is to survive, massive changes need to happen,” the insider concludes.
In other Kardashian news, Kris Humphries has had it with speculation about his divorce and the nonstop accusations against him – likely stemming from his desperate to save her spotlight ex-wife. Hot on the heels of gossip that Kim wants to claim he defrauded her by refusing to move to California (despite footage on her reality show demonstrating otherwise), Kris is releasing a statement denying any defamatory comments or leaks came from his camp because they all came from the Kardashinas.
“Much effort and energy to mis-direct the public’s perception of what transpired between Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries has taken place over the past several months, some even going so far as to attempt to create settlement ‘demands’ where none have been made,” the statement begins.
“Neither Kris Humphries nor his legal team have spread these rumors nor will they. While we are encouraged to see an apparent willingness by the other side to put big numbers out in an attempt to settle Mr. Humphries’ claims, we respect and will continue to observe the integrity of the legal process.”
“This case will be resolved not in the court of public opinion amidst ridiculous and defamatory allegations and personal attacks directed against Kris Humphries. Rather, this case will be appropriately investigated and litigated professionally and with integrity.”
And Kris is not backing down – nor is he remaining quiet about the Kardashians’ intentions for this marriage! “One thing is certain: Kris Humphries intends to set the record straight and while settlement discussions are a normal part of every litigated case, there will always be public speculation and conjecture in matters such as this, in fact, these legal proceedings and the parties involved are deserving of professionalism and integrity by all.”
Kris, believe me, we are all standing by on bated breath to see how this plays out!
Finally, also not apologizing or backing down is actor Jon Hamm; who lambasted fauxlebrities like Kim by saying, “stupidity is certainly celebrated.” Kim released a statement denying that anything she does is stupid, cause, she’s like popular y’all and called his comments “careless!” But Jon is standing by his statements!
“I don’t think [my comments] were careless. I think they were accurate,” he explained on The Today Show. “It’s a part of our culture that I certainly don’t identify with and I don’t really understand the appeal of it other than in a sort of car crash sensibility.”

IS THE JENNER MARRIAGE ON THE ROCKS? IS BRUCE RIGHT TO FINALLY PUT HIS FOOT DOWN? THOUGHTS ON KRIS’ STATEMENT – IS HE LEAKING STORIES TO THE MEDIA? DOES JON HAMM OWE KIM AN APOLOGY?
On last night’s episode of Real Housewives of Atlanta, NeNe couldn’t go through with finalizing her divorce and Cynthia divorced her sister by asking her to stay out of her marriage. Kim and Kandi made amends and Kandi successfully wrote a country song with artist Jo Dee Messina. Sheree learned that Tierra‘s boyfriend is planning to propose – and has already asked Bob for his consent!
Things start out at Cynthia‘s house. Peter and Cynthia are both upset about Mal‘s behavior at their anniversary party. Cynthia decides she is done with their fighting, to which Peter claims, he has no issues with Mal he just doesn’t want to deal with her.
Moving on, Kim and Kandi get together for a heart to heart at her new rent-a-mcmansion. Kim acts as if she is lady of the manor, but she’s really hoochie on the hill. I did like her red striped sofa. Kandi and Kim discuss how their friendship got so off track, and it basically is because of a little track known as, Tardy For The Party. They agree business and friendship don’t mix and I notice Kim never apologized for stealing Kandi’s money!
