In rumor round 8 zillion about the Real Housewives of New York firings, a new report is now alleging that Bethenny Frankel got her former best friend Jill Zarin axed from the show!

Bethenny has had a tough shakes of things lately, and there has been much speculation about her versions of the truth being you know, truthful, but is she really still so angry at Jill she would sabotage her career? Somebody thinks so!

Bethenny is the subject of a scathing new report by the New York Post which not only claims she plotted to get Jill fired from the show that made them both famous, but that she’s also a master manipulator, and that the real-life of Bethenny is totally different than what the world sees.

I’m not sure how reliable this unnamed source is and I’m also not sure I believe most of this article, but you can decide for yourself what you think.

“Every single person in her life is someone who is on her payroll, including her husband, Jason Hoppy,” the insider insists. “Bethenny’s whole agenda has been to keep it real, and none of it is real. It’s all planted stories and her trying to bury her enemies.”

“Everything she’s done, from what she did to Jill Zarin on the show with behind-the-scenes torture to what she’s doing now, is pure Bethenny.” The insider, who purports to be close to Bethenny, is not giving a reason for why Bethenny would still harbor such resentment towards Jill and claims that during her final season as a housewife, Bethenny refused to speak to Jill unless cameras were rolling and exacerbated a petty argument into a “full-blown war” in order to boost her popularity. That same insider also claims Bethenny manipulates Andy Cohen.

An unnamed media observer declares that Bethenny went into Housewives with a plan. “She had done a reality show, with Martha Stewart’s ‘The Apprentice,’ before any of the other housewives, so she was always 10 beats ahead.”

“She is the best publicist-marketer-hustler I’ve ever seen. She is PT Barnum. But the sad thing is the amount of people she’s thrown under the bus to get to where she is,” observer continues.

The article claims Bethenny “carefully manipulates reporters to meet her goals,” alleging that early on in her career, Bethenny would call gossip columnists to plant items that were either exaggerations or blatantly false, aka the rumor that she dated A-Rod. Several gossip editors reportedly instituted a “Bethenny ban” because her calls were so frequent.

“She dated WireImage’s photographer Kevin Mazur and made sure to get pictures on the red carpet before anyone knew who she was. She is the best publicist-marketer-hustler I’ve ever seen. She is PT Barnum. But the sad thing is the amount of people she’s thrown under the bus to get to where she is,” says a media observer.

The unidentified insider feels Bethenny’s days on top may be numbered as even those in her employ are tired of her “More, more, more, mine, mine, mine” attitude. “Being around her is like having chest pains,” the source explains. “She is a horrible, horrible screamer. Every person around her is feeling the anxiety. She goes from 0 to 60 in a second. You open the door, and you have no idea. It could be a storm, it could be a dozen roses.”

“I hate to say it, but as one of the producers from the show told me: ‘We’re just hoping it’s going to be, “Bethenny’s Getting a Divorce?” snipes the insider. “Because how long can this go on for?” the source comments on the fate of Bethenny’s show Bethenny Ever After. “The minute she stops being viable for Andy and making money, he’ll walk away from her just like he walked away from everyone else,” says the same insider who accuses her of manipulating Andy.

The source also alleges that Bethenny’s got Jill axed from RHONY. Does she really have that much pull??? Bethenny’s “whole game plan was to pull Jill down, and she did it and Jill got fired.”

Jill who has recently spoken out defending her former friend’s on-going troubles in the media (hey, she knows from experience), stated: “I hope she sees [the bad press] as a mere bump in the road and chalks it up to a lesson learned. Everyone makes mistakes but it is how you handle it that defines you.”

But when a fan Tweeted Jill a link to this article, writing: “This article confirms everything I always suspected about Bethenny & Andy Cohen! Vindication for @JillZarin at last!!” Jill responded, Tweeting back: “Sad day for me to find out.”

Jill later followed up with another Tweet pertaining to the article, remarking: “Haters will never believe truth. It would mean admitting they were wrong.” Bethenny has yet to comment on the accusations. It appears Jill is insinuating the article is accurate and Bethenny did get her fired… which all seems slightly absurd! Did Bethenny get Alex McCord and Kelly Bensimon fired as well? At the end of the day, I don’t believe Bethenny has enough pull at Bravo to get anyone fired!

THOUGHTS ON THE ARTICLE? WHAT DO YOU BELIEVE? IS THIS THE WORK OF A BITTER UNNAMED SOURCE TRYING TO TEAR DOWN BETHENNY’S SUCCESS OR TRUTHFUL INFORMATION?

In a surprising new report, former Top Chef: Just Desserts finalist Morgan Wilson has been indicted on child pornography charges.

Morgan, 38, was arrested last December in his hometown of Plano, TX after undercover investigators discovered file transfers from his computer that allegedly featured images and videos of children, from toddler-aged on, engaged in sexual acts. Morgan also attempted to share these files.

When Plano police officers searched his residence and showed Morgan the incriminating images he admitted he had viewed the images and signed and dated them to indicate he agreed with the police. He was taken into custody and released on $10,000 bail with a stipulation that he have no computer access without monitoring software.

Earlier this month Morgan was indicted on three felony counts of possession with intent to promote child pornography and faces up to 10-years in prison if convicted. He is scheduled to go before a judge on Oct 27th.

Prior to this incident, Morgan was employed as the Executive Pastry Chef at The Ritz-Carlton, Dallas, but he has since been let go. “He is no longer employed here,” a marketing manager for the company informed the NY Daily News. Bravo has not released any statements related to the matter.

Morgan starred in the first season of Top Chef: Just Desserts in late 2010 and was known for intense, often volatile demeanor. He is also the father to a young son and is reportedly engaged, according to his Facebook page.

THOUGHTS ON THE SITUATION AND THE NEWS?


On last night’s FINAL episode of Real Housewives of New Jersey I breathed a serious sigh of relief, opened up the wine for a guzzlet or two, and prepared to cringe. I have run out of steam with these people. I’m going to try and cover this the best I can, but there was a lot of yelling about things like Kool-aid that left me confused. So, hang in there!

The show opens with Andy’s attempts at fun by bringing up Joe G-to-the-Orga’s horniness and The Gorgasm? A montage of all the couples’ lovey-dovey moments is replayed, except for Caroline and Albert. Cause I guess they don’t have them – or Caroline just won’t discuss them. Uh-huh. Apparently Joe Gorga has a history of dressing up like a lady – it goes way back to when he was little. This is explains a lot. Did The Gorgas want two Teresas?! Ooooohhh… the stress that image just caused!

Kim Kardashian, the really real reality and sextape star is moving to the big screen!

According to a new report by Deadline, Kimmie will star in Tyler Perry’s new film The Marriage Counselor! Kinda ironic, considering her own marital woes!

Filming for the flick begins next week in Atlanta and Kim will play the role of Ava, a co-worker and friend to the main character, who “helps her friend gain new confidence with a big city makeover among other things.”

This will be Kim’s third attempt at the big screen – the first two attempts was so completely unmemorable I didn’t even know they happened!

In other news, Kim also took to Las Vegas this weekend to celebrate her 31st birthday the only way she knows how! How you ask? Just by getting paid to host her own birthday party at a club! According to reports that came out last year, Kimmie commands up to $250,000 for each of her paid club appearances.

The HollywoodLife blog is however reporting Kimmie might be regretting this latest paid gig as she reportedly got booed at her own birthday party!

The blog states that Kimmie, who held her party at Marquee Nightclub at The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas on Oct. 22, was booed after she was introduced!

In fact, Kim’s sister Khloe Kardashian, who was also in attendance, reportedly tried to calm the crowd down but unfortunately the rowdy crowd only got louder when Khloe took the mike. Ouch!

ARE YOU EXCITED ABOUT KIM’S BUDDING FILM CAREER OR HAVE YOU HAD ENOUGH OF HER? THOUGHTS ON KIMMIE GETTING BOOED?


A mere two months following Kim Kardashian’s zillion dollar “wedding of the year” (ha!) to Kris Humphries-Kardashian the rumors of marital issues are simply refusing to go away. In fact, several new reports claim the couple is moving dangerously close to splitsville.

Apparently while Kimmie was in the United Arab Emirates & Dubai (wearing 6” heels on a camel?!) earning a kool 1M for who knows what, Krissy-poo was home in NYC getting veeerrry friendly with other women.

Life & Style is reporting that Kris was seen leaving 1Oak Nightclub holding hands with a mystery blonde who is apparently a friend of his sister and instead of meeting Kim at the airport following her six-day trip, he grabbed lunch with his buddies. Husband of the year!

Another insider reports that while Kim was working in Miami last month, Kris was seen getting lap dances from two women in a different club. While the mommy’s kat’s away, the mouse will play!

“Kris takes other girls’ cell phone numbers all the time. To be honest, I don’t think Kris truly loves Kim. And I don’t think he ever really did,” a source tells Radar Online about the marriage.

Even worse, Kim’s agent has reportedly dropped Kris from his client roster. Well, he does have even LESS talent than his wife! Along with dropping Kris from their roster, William Morris Endeavor Entertainment has also canceled plans for a Kris & Kim reality show. I’m … just… so… disappointed! “I don’t know when they’ll announce the split or why they got married in the first place but they are done,” an insider close to the couple tells Mail Online.

“Kim isn’t willing to change her life [for Kris],” Page Six reveals. “She works hard and cannot take any time out. And she doesn’t have time for his friends.” In fact, one reason their relationship is in trouble is they spend no alone time together. “They haven’t had any time to settle in together. They have an army of people around them all the time,” a source explains. “It’s hard for them to be alone and have quality time together,” the source elaborates, claiming Kim “films until midnight every night,” for Kourtney & Kim Take New York (seriously who watches that show?!)!

In fact, supposedly the implosion of their barely existent marriage is a plot line for the upcoming season. Which makes me wonder – is their made for TV marriage really in trouble or is the couple just trying to generate ratings?

Filming for the show seems to be a major hurdle in their relationship and part of the discontent stems from Kim’s homesickness for LA. “I’m kind of homesick,” Kim told Life & Style. “So I need to go back to LA for a little bit.” Wait didn’t she promise to move anywhere for her hubby’s career?! “Kim’s mapping out 2012, including holidays, and Kris isn’t a part of it. Any itineraries for the future don’t include Kris very much. That’s not a good sign,” says a source.

While sources say things are so bad Kris was spotted – sans wedding ring – moving boxes out of their NYC residence after Kim kicked him out, Kim denies the allegations. Multiple sources tell TMZ that filming for Kourtney & Kim has finished and the couple is simply moving back to LA together. As for the missing wedding ring – Kris “isn’t a fan of jewelry.”

Who knows what to believe? I guess, we’ll wait for the next round of tabloid reports.

WHAT DO YOU THINK – A MARRIAGE IN TROUBLE OR A PUBLICITY STUNT? DO YOU THINK KIM AND KRIS WILL MAKE IT IN THE LONG RUN?

Oh McCord-van Kempens, give it up already!

The recently fired, former Real Housewives of New York couple makes it clear to Wetpaint, that they’re not going anywhere as they threaten promise a return to reality television! And true to form Simon van Kempen does most of the talking in the interview! “I wouldn’t write us off TV just yet, but it’s a bit too early to confirm anything,” Simon promises.

Although Simon claims a return to reality TV would probably not include Bravo, he insists the couple “left on good terms” and the door is still open for a return to HW. I mean after all, Alex McCord got a spot on the Real Housewives Live Tour and “she’s the only “fired” Housewife to do the tour,” Simon boasts of his wife. Victory in small things! A photo of Alex attending the HW tour is below.

“If the rumors are true and they open the door to come back, then, maybe not,” Simon assures. Making sure to reiterate Bravo still likes them – they really do and reality TV is their destiny, “the doors are certainly open because we’ve now left and whether it’s with Housewives or with Bravo or another network, that remains to be seen, but we’ll come back on your TV screens sometime in 2012.” Oh, yay! Or Oh, No! I can’t decide which.

While the couple is most definitely promising a return to our TV screens, they haven’t quit their day jobs just yet (they’re not making that mistake again!) and are hard at work on Aluxe Home, raising their two boys, and supporting many charitable causes – including working together with LuAnn de Lesseps!

“I had wanted to do a home line for years, and Simon jumped on board with that completely — we do everything as a team,” Alex reminds us. “After several potential deals that didn’t go through, we decided that going into partnership with a factory was a really good bet,” which is how they ended up with Aluxe Home. Alex shares that a big inspiration for the line was color, and a desire to create a more sophisticated style of children’s bedding.

Alex also talks family and apparently the couple are not planning for anymore children. But why – it would make for such good TV! “Our family is complete with 2 kids — Simon and I both agreed that we did not want to be outnumbered,” Alex laughs! “Simon and I went from being adamant that we would never have kids, to changing our minds and embracing parenthood (and luckily that happened before our first child arrived!).”

As for working together with LuAnn, Alex explains: “we are putting aside our Housewives differences to support Breast Cancer survivors in recognition of Breast Cancer Awareness Month.” Wow…I’m shocked, but in a good way.

THOUGHTS ON SILEX’S POTENTIAL RETURN TO TELEVISION? SHOULD THEY GIVE IT UP ALREADY OR DO YOU WANT TO SEE MORE OF THEM? WOULD YOU BUY PRODUCTS FROM THEIR NEW BEDDING LINE?


Well, we finally made it! It’s almost the end and despite there being something like 8 decoy collections, the finalist for this season of Project Runway were chosen! Are you relieved or is that just me?

The designers meet Heidi Klum on the runway and she explains all four designers will design a collection. But only three of them will be moving forward to compete at fashion week. They will have 5 weeks and $9k to create a 10-look collection. Tim Gunn – intellectual and compassionate sounding board – will be checking in on the designers mid-way through to provide feedback.

All the contestants engage in the tried and true emotional breakdown, crying, ‘I can’t believe I made it tears’ and they’re off! Viktor and Eyebrows McSequins hop on a subway and zoom off home. I always love it when the contestants walk or cab it home from Parsons at the end. Remember in season 3 when Laura Bennett with all her fabulous vintage LV luggage and her Manolos just walked right out of the studio and cruised the couple blocks home? Classic.

We are pleased to report that four days following her shattering announcement that she is battling breast cancer and scheduled to undergo surgery related to the disease, E! News host Giuliana Rancic is out of surgery and recovering!

Bill Rancic told the Today show his wife is “doing well” following the surgery and the couple views the shocking discovery as a blessing! “We’re viewing this as a gift; it was caught accidentally very, very early,” Bill said, focusing on the positives.

Giuliana, 37, underwent surgery for a double lumpectomy to remove cancerous tissue from the breasts. The surgery lasted about two hours and was without complications. “She’s a trooper. She pulled through it and was kind of relieved to get it over with and get the cancer out,” Bill explained. “She’s doing well at home and recovering.”

“I wish I could take some of the pain away,” he sympathized. “Watching her being wheeled into that operating room was heartbreaking for me. I’m just doing everything I can to support her and make sure that she’s comfortable.” Awww… what a wonderful husband.

Bill also emphasizes that the couple will continue their quest to become parents despite the diagnosis. Giuliana said earlier this week after discovering the cancer while prepping for a third round of IVF: “That baby will have saved my life. There’s some master plan. Now I know that [God] was looking out for me.”

And following Giuliana’s announcement earlier this week, a number of reality stars tweeted their support. Below are some of those tweets -

Bethenny Frankel“What you’re going through is all that matters @GiulianaRancic @billrancic It puts everything in perspective. Love&prayers are with you”

Jill Zarin“@GiulianaRancic I think you are so brave and honest to share your life with us. Ups and downs. I know you will be fine….XOXO”

Ramona Singer“You’re an incredibly strong woman @GiulianaRancic My thoughts and prayers are with you.”

Maci Bookout“Praying for @giulianarancic. keep going strong, with God u can win this battle against breast cancer!” –

Teresa Giudice“@GiulianaRancic My thoughts & prayers are w/you doll! You’re strong & beautiful, you’ll get through this & be an even bigger inspiration! Xx”

Patti Stanger“@GiulianaRancic My prayers are with you…you’ll beat it! Try the penguin caps if you have to do chemo, you won’t lose your hair.”

The best of luck to Giuliana and Bill! We wish Giuliana well in her treatment and recovery.
