Real Housewives of Beverly Hills most notorious houseguest Cedric Martinez refuses to give up the limelight or let go of Lisa Vanderpump’s coattails! Speaking exclusively to Wetpaint Entertainment, Cedric accuses Lisa and her husband Ken Tood of inflicting major damage to his life!

“Ken stabbed me in the back and Lisa twisted the knife, but they didn’t kill me,” he laments. “It was a rough year, but I’ve landed on my feet.” And things are going well for the former moocher – he now has a job he loves, his own place, and a tell-all memoir in the works.

I wonder if that tell-all will include tidbits about the Vanderpump-Todd family? After all during the Season 1 reunion, Lisa revealed they were forced to get the police involved following Cedric’s ejection from their mansion and Kyle Richards let it slip that the couple filed a restraining order against Cedric!

Well, restraining order or not, Cedric is not hesitating to speak out on the couple who housed him and treated him as one of their family and Cedric insists that Lisa was buddy-buddy with the tabloid media and gave them negative stories about him and other cast members! “There’s no question about it. I’ve known Lisa has Us Weekly on speed dial since she sold out my relationship with Lance Bass,” Cedric declares. Um… what relationship with Lance Bass – did I miss something?

He also claims that Lisa is “absolutely” the person who fed the media information about Taylor’s marital issues, which is a storyline included in this season!

Cedric is also responding to friend Brandi Glanville‘s accusations that Kim Richards is an addict! “Anyone watching this season knows drinking is the least of her problems,” Cedric asserts. “I hope and pray she gets the help she so desperately needs.”

Well, Lisa has no comment – yet – about Cedric’s latest claims! But he will definitely be making an appearance later this season!

In other RHOBH news, unofficial Housewives Brandi and Dana Wilkey are giving their two cents on what it was like participating in a reality show!

As for adapting to life on TV, Brandi to confesses to the Huffington Post there were certainly some “low points” for all the cast members through the course of the show and she faults a lot of the erratic and unflattering behavior to long hours of filming mixed with lots of alcohol and little food!

Brandi also spoke out about LeAnn Rimes, the woman who first stole her husband and is now stealing her style! Brandi calls the alleged imitations “irritating.”

Since dating and subsequently marrying Eddie Cibiran, LeAnn has undergone a drastic weight loss, gotten breast implants, and started mimicking some of Brandi’s Twitter pics with those of her own (I’m sure you all remember the identical bikini poses!). LeAnn has even faced criticism for her weightloss from E! host Giuliana Rancic!

Well Brandi, who definitely isn’t one to hold her tongue, feels that LeAnne should give it up as being Brandi certainly wasn’t enough to sustain her marriage! “It obviously didn’t keep my ex-husband with me,” Brandi explains. “It didn’t work.”

“Oh, it’s irritating, yeah,” Brandi reveals. “[But] the kids love her. I’m happy that they love her,” she relents, taking the high road and admitting LeAnn is a good step-mom.

Dana also talked about how friend and co-star Taylor Armstrong is coping in response to the recent tragedy in her life. Dana admits: “She’s rebuilding. [She] will never be the same person again.”

She also confronts the rumor that Taylor may be dating Most Eligible Dallas star Matt Nordgren after numerous reports have spotted them together. “They’re just ‘silly stories,’” Dana insists!

A new episode of RHOBH airs tonight! The ninth episode titled ‘Otherwise Engaged’ Mohammed throws Pandora an over the top circus-themed engagement party, featuring camels, circus performers and snakes. But no Kim! Kim is a no-show since she is hiding her boyfriend, who according to IMDB, she has been dating for two-years! And Kyle has a tense dinner with Taylor and Russell who threaten legal action against Lisa for supposedly planting stories about them in the tabloids!

The new episode airs on Bravo at 9/8c and a preview clip is below! On tonight’s WWHL Halloween Spectacular the guests are Chris March, Gail Simmons, and Real Housewives of Atlanta‘s Phaedra Parks and Apollo Nida. I so can’t wait!

THOUGHTS ON CEDRICS ACCUSATIONS ABOUT LISA AND KEN? DO YOU THINK LEANN IS COPYING BRANDI? ARE YOU EXCITED ABOUT TONIGHT’S EPISODE?

The drama surrounding Real Housewives of New Jersey continues to explode! Melissa Gorga and Caroline Manzo are scrambling to get their sides’ of the story heard while ostracized castmate Teresa Giudice is indisposed filming Celebrity Apprentice.

Or perhaps they are just responding to the latest round of stories reported by In Touch Weekly, which are rumored to have been planted by Teresa, herself!

Speaking out on New York Live, Caroline did not hold back! “I noticed a change [in Teresa] when other ladies joined the cast,” she revealed. “We were acquaintances, not friends. Off camera, there was nothing — no interaction,” she insists.

“It has been an unbelievable experience. A growing experience, a learning experience, but I’ve had a lot of heartbreak because of it,” she explains, alluding to her rift with Dina Manzo, which she seems to believe was caused or at least exacerbated by Teresa. “So much I won’t say, because I don’t want to hurt anyone. I’m not going to blame the network. For a TV show, I’m not going to hurt someone. I’m not going to do it,” she declares.

Caroline is also still reeling from Teresa’s attacks against her children, who in her mind have never crossed the threshold into adulthood or something. “My children didn’t sign up for this. We put ourselves out there and have no idea.” Caroline insists, claiming they had never seen reality TV before joining the cast and were not prepared for the negativity.

Caroline also joined Melissa and Kathy Wakile for an interview with The Insider where they spoke about, what else – Teresa! Oh, and the upcoming Season 4 drama!

“Why should I feel sorry for someone who walks away from love?” Caroline asks, referring to castmate and never-really-friend Teresa. “You don’t have the right play the victim, when you’re the one doing all the hitting,” she admonished.

Describing her relationship with Teresa prior to the reunion and the explosive stripper-gate incident supposedly filmed the night before, Melissa expresses her shock over Teresa’s behavior. “I get very disappointed in her,” Melissa laments. “When we’re so good, why would you take that chance?”

“We were great, probably better than ever. And I owe a lot of that to Bravo” Melissa explains, claiming that the interaction required for the show brought them closer and helped a positive a more relationship develop.

As for the friendship between the other castmates, Melissa describes: “It’s just easy, there’s no insulting going on.” Caroline and Kathy echo those sentiments, claiming they are supportive of each other, not competitive, and they “help each other” by offering opportunity and support.

Melissa also spoke to Hollywood Life about the reunion and dealing with the sister-in-law from hell on national television. And she believes the other ladies did not gang up on Teresa!

“Everyone was upset with her,” she states. “We had an explosive night the day [before the reunion] — that was a lot of the reason for the bad blood that you saw,” Melissa reveals, refusing to give any more details about what may have happened.

“I felt the pressure she was going through,” Melissa mentions, claiming she tried to keep a low-profile since Teresa and Caroline were embroiled in so much animosity. “Obviously you saw the commotion between her and Caroline, so I didn’t want to sit there and her think that we were ganging up on her. That was not the intention at all. We’re not trying to team up on her. We are addressing the issue. That’s what the reunion is.”

Melissa also agreed that poor plagued by stripper-rumors, Jacqueline Laurita would not have been able to pull herself away from Twitter handle the reunion! “It was something that Teresa has done that Jacqueline does not agree with,” Melissa cites “She just wouldn’t be able to handle a nine-hour filming session.”

As for how Teresa could make amends with her family and her former (maybe never?) friends, Melissa thinks a simple apology will suffice. “We all do things wrong, we’re all not perfect; she just needs to be able to say ‘you know what, I’m sorry.’” Although Melissa confirms: family is family. “I’m always going to be here to support her and her children.”

My Thoughts: Caroline’s new-found relationship with Melissa and Kathy seems eerily similar to her prior fauxlationship with Teresa! And for someone who was merely an on-camera acquaintance she certainly played up the “like family/thick as thieves” angle in S2 and off camera in interviews and appearances. Which is interesting because Caroline emphatically states over and over that she does not lie. Now, I am 100 percent certain Bravo demanded their relationship seem authentic, but Caroline did a mighty good job of convincing us that it was! Also, Teresa’s reactions at the reunion seemed to indicate she believed they had an authentic relationship (although it’s hard to be sure with her).

Second of all Caroline’s children are adults and have been for the duration of filming. Therefore they did sign up for this show – they knowingly signed contracts, agreed to film, and were compensated for their involvement. Does that give Teresa the right to insult their ideas or behaviors in a cookbook for her own financial gain? No, of course not. But the Manzo children are not innocent by-standers in the situation. They insulted Teresa plenty this season and did not seem to have any qualms about their behaviors. The children who truly did not sign up for this show are those of the Gorgas, Giudices, and Lauritas (save for Ashlee).

THOUGHTS? DO YOU THINK THERE IS HOPE FOR TERESA RECONNECTING WITH HER FAMILY AND CASTMATES? DO YOU BELIEVE CAROLINE, KATHY, AND MELISSA HAVE A GENUINE RELATIONSHIP? ARE CAROLINE’S CHILDREN INNOCENT VICTIMS OR IS SHE OVER-REACTING?


Jill Zarin is doing what she does best – running her mouth! In a new interview the out-spoken former Real Housewives of New York star talks being fired, doing more reality TV (oh no!), and the unfortunate side to C (or is it D?)-List fame.

Contrary to what we all know in our hearts to be true, Jill claims she was “prepared” for being let-go from RHONY. Telling Parade, “I had sort of an inkling over the summer that the show might take a turn,” she admits. “As a family, we weren’t sure if coming back for a fifth season was going to be the best road for me right now, but we were waiting until Bravo made their decision.”

“I believe that what’s meant to be is meant to be, so I sort of let it happen,” she explains of her feelings about being publicly fired. “If they asked me back and that was my path, so be it. And if they said that they wanted to make a change for the cast and that was going to be my final season, I was certainly ok with that.”

“In television, it’s about what you can do to be more dramatic and keep the viewers,” she states, echoing exactly what many fans believe is behind a lot of the cray-cray.

Agreeing with another ex-housewife, Kelly Bensimon, Jill feels the show was a good experience, “I had a four-year run on a very successful show,” she comments. “I’m very proud of what I did. It was just a platform for me,” she explains of how Housewives impacted her life. “I’m grateful to Bravo for opening the door for me in this business that I never though I’d be in — the entertainment business.”

As for how fame has negatively affected her life, Jill claims a lot of the backlash has disappeared since the fans got what they wanted she left the show. “I really don’t take any kind of negativity personally,” she expects us to believe. And now that’s she’s away from the camera, Jill insists: “I am having the best time of my life,” revealing, “I got my happy back.”

“It’s really about this sort of character on TV. It’s interesting, when the show is airing, there’s a lot of chatter on the Internet, but then when the show is off the air they move on to Beverly Hills or New Jersey. I don’t feel any negativity right now.”

Jill also confirms she and fellow mean girl, Bitchtress Countess Luann de Lesseps are still friends. “I’m very close with LuAnn still and Sonja [Morgan] and I have a good relationship. Just because I’m not on the show doesn’t mean that I’m not happy for them.”

And of course – the news we’ve all be dreading – Jill threatens promises a return to television! “It won’t be the last time (I hope) that I’ll be on television. I have a couple things that I’m in the middle of that I can’t share yet.” There have been reports stating Jill is trying to pitch a reality show that will involve both her and Patti Stanger! And Patti might just be available for that show as ratings for the Millionaire Matchmaker continue to dip this season, averaging less than a million viewers per episode, in addition to her recent faux pas.

It seems that Jill’s return to television is inevitable especially since she just signed with a new talent management group, Octogan – which also represents fellow-reality stars Piers Morgan, Dr. Drew Pinsky, and Nancy O’Dell, There Jill will be represented in part by The Hills alum, Lo Bosworth!

THOUGHTS ON JILL’S INTERVIEW? DO YOU BELIEVE JILL KNEW SHE WAS GETTING FIRED AND IS HAPPY AWAY FROM THE SHOW? WHAT DO YOU THINK JILL’S NEXT TELEVISION PROJECT WILL BE?


Finale Time! Project Runway has finally come to an end. And I have to say; I may seriously be done with this series following last night’s results. I won’t give anymore away for those who have not yet watched (or Googled).

It’s two-days before fashion week and everyone is in a tizzy! Tim Gunn greets the designers in the workroom and announces he is furious at the crack-smocking judges’ critiques of the mini collections. He offers the real final three props and calls the judges out on their cray-cray; although did I hear him say he loved Eyebrows’ Grecian catsuit?! I think he just said that to be nice and to point out clearly and emphatically that little miss Anya had no business taking her messy used “intimate tapes” sheets to fashion week. In fact he told her as much! That’s the spirit, Tim. The old Tim we know and love! Tim announces a surprise gift! An additional $500 to spend at Piperline Mood to buy whatever they want!

Anya is over-whelmed by her lack of a collection and starts to panic. Viktor announces he will be re-making his fabulous grey gown?! At Mood, Viktor demonstrates he has been spending too much time with Eyebrows as he gravitates towards sheer – and not just sheer, cheetah print sheer!

It’s the marriage that was never meant to be! You know the old saying: “If you marry for money, you will earn every penny” and I’m afraid that’s just the case with poor old Kim Kardashian and her hubby for the minute Kris Humphries-Kardashian!

A new report states that Kimmie settled for Kris as her second or third choice as she was simply eager to date a starring basketball player – any at all. Desperate, much Kimster? Or was E! pushing another Kardashian-Basketball love story?

An insider tells Wetpaint Entertainment that E! and Kim “were interested in having her date a big New York athlete for the debut season of Kourtney & Kim Take New York, and the Knicks were their first choice.” But I thought this was a reality show? #sarcasm.

Kimmie’s initial pick was much younger much richer basketball player, Danilo Gallinari! The New York Knicks were apparently approached by representative of E! to see if Danilo, 22, would have an interest in earning a little extra dough dating Kimmie for a chance at a little C-List fame on reality TV!

“Danilo said he would love to meet Kim but was not interested in dating her or being on a reality show,” an insider explains. Apparently the network didn’t want to take no for an answer and tried to convince the poor Danilo that “it would be great for his career.” Wisely he turned them down – either he or his handlers are smart cookies!

Well almost immediately after Danillo ran screaming back to Italy (where coincidentally Kim honeymooned), Kimmie was latched onto another much younger man – her current hubster, Kris, then of the New Jersey Nets. The Nets wouldn’t say if the network begged them to loan them some eligible menz so Kimmie didn’t look a desperate spinster on national television. Drat.

E! is also not commenting on this story because, naturally, it’s complete and utter BS. Sure it is. Kim claims she met Kris courtside after seeing him play and a friend introduced him.

Whatever the case, Kris may have had enough of his marriage of convenience and its demanding ways! Life & Style is reporting that Kris is over the constant camera crews invading his marriage and that being filmed 24/7 makes him uncomfortable. So much so that he is threatening not to film for upcoming seasons of Kim’s zillion horrible TV shows, telling her: “‘I’ll only be your little TV husband for a few more weeks.”

“Kris wants out of filming,” an insider reports. “They’ve had no time without a camera. He knows he signed up for this, but I think it’s weighed on him.” Especially since that Kardashian money is slow to trickle in! “Kris makes only about $20,000 per episode,” the insider reveals. “He wants more to make it worthwhile!” Of course, it’s all about the money with this crew! I guess that is pretty much the only redeeming benefit to being a Kardashian accoutrement!

Apparently Kris isn’t afraid to challenge his much more famous wife and “is really the only person who stands up to her,”

“He says no when everyone else says yes,” a friend reveals. “I think secretly it challenges her and turns her on. No one says no to her except Kris. It frustrates her, but it ignites her.” Um… yuck. And I don’t believe you.

DO YOU BELIEVE THE RUMORS THAT KIM AND E! WERE SCANNING THE NBA CIRCUIT FOR POTENTIAL MATES? OR DOES KIM REALLY LOVE KRIS? DO YOU THINK KIM AND KRIS WILL LAST OR ARE THEY ON THEIR WAY TO DIVORCE COURT?


If watching Keeping Up With The Kardashians has harmed your brain cells, QuickTrim, the diet pill they endorse, may just flat out harm you! Seriously.

A new report has experts and physicians calling QuickTrim “dangerous and ineffective”! Both Kim and Khloe endorse the product and have been featured in its ads. In fact, during an episode of Khloe & Lamar, pimpmomager Kris Jenner was heard yelling at Khloe that she would lose the endorsement for being too fat! Kim has claimed to have lost around 15lbs using the supplements and credited the products for helping her lose weight before her made-for-TV wedding.

Maybe Khloe knew something the rest of us didn’t as the report claims QuickTrim is hazardous to your health! “I don’t think anyone should take these products,” Dr. Adriane Fugh-Berman warns in an interview for US News & World Report.

Dr. Fugh-Berman, a physician and associate professor at Georgetown University Medical Center, along with registered dietitian Keri Gans decided to review three QuickTrim products and found that these supplements “contain powerful stimulants, laxatives, and diuretics that could cause abdominal pains, cramping and even kidney failure.”

Additionally they discovered that the QuickTrim products contained “large amounts of caffeine” which the company is not disclosing! “It irritates me that they’re not saying how much caffeine is in these pills,” Dr. Fugh-Berman relayed. “Too much caffeine can make you jittery and increase your blood pressure and pulse.”

“If you pop a couple of these pills with your Starbucks coffee, that’s not good; you could get caffeine poisoning, which can cause heart arrhythmias,” she cautions.

Registered dietitian Heather Mangeiri, a spokesman for the American Dietetic Association also echos those warnings and calls the pills ineffective! “My suggestion is to leave them on the shelf,” she advises.”Dietary supplements like these aren’t regulated by the [Food and Drug Administration], and many of the ingredients haven’t been shown to be effective.”

No statements have been made from QuickTrim or the Kardashian family regarding these findings.

In other Kardashian overdose news – the family is opening a new boutique. Yes – another one. “We are so excited to announce that our lifestyle boutique, Kardashian Khaos, is opening on November 1 in The Mirage, Las Vegas!!” Kim announced on her website this week. I love the name – sooo original!

“The store will feature so many amazing products including all the products that we own, represent, market and endorse, and some exclusive Las Vegas souvenir items,” Kim enthuses. Do you think they’ll be selling QuickTrim there? Including a very special product – sit down for this – a Kardashian TATTOO!!!! Oh NO!

“Never in my life did I think I would be made into a temporary tattoo,” desperate for attention and money-hungry mom, Kris wrote on her blog this week. “But never say never, right?! LOL.”

The Kardashians aren’t stopping there either – the family filed multiple U.S. Patent and Trademark documents for “Kardashian Kollection Home,” which may include “towels, bath mats, bedding as well as kitchen utensils, picture frames, and beer mugs.” Yes – because they have such stellar decorating tastes we all want our homes to look that tacky great.

THOUGHTS ON THE DANGEROUS FINDINGS RELATED TO QUICKTRIM PRODUCTS? DO YOU BELIEVE THE KARDASHIANS KNEW THE PRODUCTS WERE DANGEROUS? ARE YOU AS SHOCKED AS I AM THAT A KARDASHIAN TEMPORARY TATTOO WILL BE ON THE MARKET SOON?


Patti Sanger has emerged from hiding and is back to insulting people giving advice. In a new interview, the Millionaire Matchmaker talks her professional life, matchmaking, and how her reality show isn’t all that real.

“I was always a matchmaker in my personal life and realized there was a lot of money to be made doing it,” Patti tells TheFashionSpot blog of her roots growing up in NYC before moving to Miami and then LA where she became the Director of Marketing at the now defunct on-line dating site, Great Expectations.

Patti decided to branch out and started her own matchmaking service, which as we know is called Millionaire’s Club International, which grew into an international company with over 30 employees – which I guess implies she had some successful matches somewhere. From there Patti sparked the attention of Bravo and a reality television show was born!

“These days, I’m taking on less clients, but making more money,” she reveals on the state of her company. And she also confirms what I’ve always believed to be true! The clients we see her matching up on reality TV are definitely not her clients in real life! “My clients would NEVER go on the show,” Patti emphasizes. “They’re more discreet, living in places like Aspen and Monaco and want to remain private.” Imagine, reality TV setting up scenarios and changing reality! Poor Bravo, nobody is singing them praises these days!

Talking the difference between matching women up coast-to-coast, Patti declares: “New York women are picky, bitter, and don’t even try. Get a blow out, put on some makeup, and wear a dress!” she demands. “New York girls are smart in business, dumb in love; LA girls are smart in love, dumb in business.” Aaahhh… Patti and her generalizations! And she even has one for the Europeans! “Europeans are more comfortable with relationships,” she insists.

Patti also discusses her ever so archaic “rules” for finding love, which include: 1) A two-drink maximum on dates, as she equates getting too drunk as “sabotage” 2) Not giving too much information away on the first date – keep some things “secret” and 3) Don’t talk about your ex – “It doesn’t make a person feel special”. Allegedly Patti follows these rules herself, except for an once where she broke them on “accident.” As for what kind of guy she’s looking for: tall, rich, and romantic – and “no metrosexuals!”

Best of luck to Patti on her quest to find love and on her quest to set other people up successfully. I’ll believe it when I see it!

THOUGHTS ON THE INTERVIEW? DO YOU BELIEVE PATTI IS A SUCCESSFUL MATCHMAKER BEHIND THE SCENES? WOULD YOU FOLLOW HER RULES FOR FINDING LOVE?


Following this week’s outburst on Dancing With The Stars over perceived judges favoritism, Maksim Chmerkovskiy is continuing to defend his actions and refusing to apologize! He is also slamming certain competitors – and he is not holding back!

Speaking out on Good Morning America, Maks is still seething over the unfair critique he believes he and partner his partner Hope Solo received at the hands of judges Len Goodman and Carrie Ann Inaba. “I definitely have nothing to apologize for I have nothing to apologize for to Len, and certainly not to Carrie Ann. She can make all the faces she wants.”

“I don’t regret anything. That’s why I think I’m a bit misunderstood in this situation,” he explained, making it clear he has no intention of trying to make his way back into the judges’ good graces. “Everyone is waiting for me to bow my head, take a knee and say I’m sorry and plea for forgiveness. I have nothing to apologize for.”

He is also furious about how the judges speak to the contestants during those critiques! “Why is it that the judges are allowed to compare us to animals and say stuff they think is funny when it’s nothing constructive at all and we can’t say that they’re wrong, basically?” Maksim questioned, referring to comments from judge, Bruno Tonioli comparing Chaz Bono to a “little penguin”.

As for his comment to the judges calling DWTS “my show”, Maksim agrees he misspoke, describing: “When I got on this show six years ago I treated it as a dance competition and everyone here tried really hard to change my mind and say ‘Look Maks, it’s a show, there are other elements to it,’ so I embraced it. But one thing I’m not going to embrace is pointed fingers and disrespectful remarks.”

“I love the show. I love the fans. I love every aspect of it and that was the whole idea behind what came out wrong with “my show,” he explained. And he also loves his partner! “One thing I don’t want to do is to have Hope have any negative vibe out of this,” he emphasized, further leading to speculation that the two may be more than dance partners! “She’s truly our star and she’s been doing an amazing job.”

Well, Maks may love Hope and the fans, but there’s someone else he certainly doesn’t love besides the judges – competitor Derek Hough! Maks describes Derek as looking out for number one and calls him “very supportive of his personal career on the show,” referring to Derek’s comments agreeing with the judges’ critiques of Hope’s performance this week.

And he is making it clear Derek is successful because he gets all the partners with experience! “With all due respect, if I had Nicole Scherzinger, followed by Jennifer Grey, followed by Ricki Lake, I probably wouldn’t be very upset with the judges either!”

I’m sure we haven’t heard the last of this issue. I’ll be tuning in next week to see what happens! So the question is -

[polldaddy poll=5618999]

DO YOU THINK MAKS OWES THE JUDGES AN APOLOGY FOR HIS OUTBUST? WAS HE OUT OF LINE WITH HIS COMMENTS ABOUT DEREK? DO YOU THINK HIS RECENT BEHAVIOR WILL NEGATIVELY AFFECT HIS STANDING ON THE SHOW?
