The Celebrity Apprentice casting rumors continue to swirl and speculation that Teresa Giudice will be part of the cast is stronger than ever! They better hurry up and decide as filming is expected to begin next week!

Insiders confirm that former swimsuit model, Cheryl Tiegs and race car driver, Marco Andretti are definitely in the line-up!

Tiegs has been on a couple of reality shows herself, including ABC’s short-lived True Beauty, but Andretti’s experience in the reality circuit mostly stems from post-race interviews. Hey, at least he’s likely cool under pressure!

Insiders close to the show also reveal that the fifth season will feature not one, but TWO loud-mouthed Italian princesses: Real Housewives of New Jersey’s infamous table flipping, cookbook shilling mama who took bankruptcy to a whole new level, Teresa Giudice and notorious mob-daughter, Victoria Gotti, star of Growing Up Gotti a reality show of yore and the author of several books – who has also had some financial and legal troubles of her own! Oh, please let this rumor be true! The drama, oh the heavenly drama!

Teresa, who possibly beat out her RHONJ co-star and current nemesis Caroline Manzo for a spot on the show, has Caroline’s camp claiming she recommended the business-savvy Jersian to Senor Trump after she turned their offer down. Team Trump denounces this rumor as not even 1/16th true. I wonder if Project Ladybug, charity of Teresa’s only remaining friend, Dina Manzo, will be her cause of choice?

Also speculated to be included in the cast is Debbie Gibson – oh excuse me Deborah Gibson – who sowed her reality TV oats on Skating With The Celebrities (yeah, I don’t remember it either) and a stint on WWHL! Deborah “I Think We’re Alone Now” Gibson seems level-headed and kind of sweet; which means underneath it all the former teen pop prodigy is likely a majah drama queen!

Finally, almost American Idol winner, Clay Aiken, who has been largely out of the spotlight as of late, might be making his triumphant return to the teevee! And I truly think the philanthropic and low-key Aiken would be a great asset to any Celebrity Apprentice team. The real question is, can he handle the out-of-control drama that is Mrs. T-Money Giudice? Probably not.

Thoughts on the rumored casting lineup? Are you excited about the possibility of a Giudice vs. Gotti throwdown or tired of the cray-cray?

Following Monday night’s explosive argument between the Richards Sisters and newbie Brandi Glanville on Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, Kyle Richards is making the media rounds to publicly admit her behavior was appalling and give her perspective on how the argument got so out of hand. Wait?! Did I just type that a reality star apologized for their behavior? Hmph, interesting.

Taking to her Bravo blog, Kyle recalls that this episode was harder for her to watch than last season’s finale where she and Kim Richards had the infamous limo fight; explaining that the argument with Kim was deeply personal and years in the making, where as Monday’s episode was just plain “mean girls!”

Kyle even describes herself as a witch! “Oh, my gosh, all I needed was a broom and a wart on the end of my nose,” she says of her catty laugh in response to Kim’s rude comments about Brandi!

Kyle also defended herself on Ryan Seacrest’s radio show, telling him: “I look at this and I think that’s just not who I am and it bothers me that it got to that!”

“I look so mean, and I swear I’m not a mean person,” Kyle insists. Surprisingly Kyle did not blame editing and acknowledges she was totally responsible for her actions. She explains her reasons for the over-the-top outburst as “Group dynamics are so tense, they bring out the worst in you.”

“Especially since I was working on my relationship with my sister [Kim]. I think she could have done anything at that point and I would have stood by her,” she goes onto clarify.

When asked about Kim’s health and if she had relapsed, Kyle played coy while revealing a very interesting fact: “I haven’t seen her, myself. I hope not!” However she does emphatically state that Kim, who was taped popping pills at an airport last year, was not intoxicated during the incident.

Telling Access Hollywood: “I was really upset when Brandi made those accusations to my sister because it wasn’t true. They were pretty hard accusations, especially when there were cameras there,” Kyle protested. Kyle repeats that she doesn’t know what was wrong with Kim during the argument and she “only saw what you saw!”

Explaining the dynamics of RHOBH, Kyle quips: “This is not Little House on the Prairie, folks!” Adding that all she can do is “learn from this and move forward and hope to not let these things get so out of hand again.”

She also admits that putting herself out there on a reality show is “not easy, but it can be a wonderful platform.” And she has called her friend and veteran reality TV personality Bethenny Frankel “in tears” because of the show. “It’s not easy putting your life out there and sometimes being judged,” Kyle explains. Especially “for things you don’t necessarily think are ‘who you are.’”

Kyle regrets her behavior (and Kim’s) so much she even wonders if she will come back for another season! “I don’t know. This season is done for now, so I don’t have to think about it for a while,” she mused. “There’s always that chance.”

As for her relationship with Brandi, she confesses “it gets worse before it gets better.” And offers an apology to Brandi and “anyone else who I let down. “ Wow she is really taking this to heart!

Kim has yet to make any comment about the incident or the accusations flying her way. She also has not done a blog for Bravo all season or Tweeted anything about the episode.

Thoughts on Kyle’s apologies? Is she sincere? Do you believe Kim was intoxicated or just a mean girl?

With the Real Housewives of Atlanta almost upon us, the ladies are out in full-force to promote the show and the dramz! A trailer for show promises tons of bickering, bitchiness, and over-the-top crazy – along with parties galore!

Phaedra Parks tells the Rumor Fix of the new season, “We’re almost finished filming, it’s still just the six of us, no one left and there is no new Housewife,” not giving away anything about the introduction of Marlo Hampton.

Everybody knows that Phaedra and NeNe Leakes don’t get along and Phaedra reassures us that the feud continues! As for NeNe’s acrimonious appearance on Celebrity Apprentice, Phaedra reveals she is largely unimpressed by her co-star’s behavior! “All this ‘keeping it real’ nonsense isn’t what the show is about. Star Jones is a good friend of mine, so is Lil John, they played it right, it was supposed to be about charity.”

Phaedra also takes a jab at Kandi Burruss in response to some totally true comments she made about Phaedra’s baby-shower last season! “I won’t comment on the word ‘Boughetto’ that Kandi used to describe my baby shower,” Phaedra snips. “It is offensive, but me and Kandi, we love each other now.”

In other RHOA news, Kim Zolciak is moving full speed ahead with her wedding plans to NFL fiance Kroy Biermann before he changes his mind just days after announcing her engagement on twitter!

In fact TMZ obtained Kim’s wedding invitation (she’s slated to tie the knot on 11/11/11) and it appears Kim, 33, believes she is a mega A-list celebrity!

The reason? Kim, whose wedding is being filmed by Bravo for her new spin-off, is banning her guests from bringing cameras or even cell phones! “In order to protect our privacy on our special day, no cameras or cell phones will be allowed on property. A photo ID will be required for all guests upon entry,” reads the invitation. PHOTOS of Kim’s invitation is below!

And finally, Cynthia Bailey also promises “a lot of drama,” as she discloses there will be “tensions going on with a lot of the girls,” and in “[her] storyline especially.” And she lets us know that the unrest between her sister and husband, Peter Thomas is still going strong. Hey, she has to bring the chaos if she expects to stick around!

As for the ladies’ trip to Africa, rest assured it will be over the top! “Africa will never, ever, ever be the same,” Cynthia exclaims!

While Cynthia’s storyline will focus on the development of her new business, a modeling school, she guarantees viewers will get to see a “different” side of her from last season’s peace-keeper now that she’s learned the ropes of Reality TV 101: Bring the cray-cray! “I get a lot of payback this time,” she hints. I wonder if that means her friendship with NeNe has some issues?!

In case you haven’t seen all the Bravo ads, Season Four of RHOA premieres November 6th at 10/9c.

Thoughts on Phaedra’s comments about NeNe’s appearance on Celebrity Apprentice? Harsh or true? Is Kim delusional with her wedding invites?

Bachelor alum Emily Maynard is a popular girl! First it was reported that she is dating Carolina Panthers tight end Jeremy Shockey (although he denied it via Twitter and then linked to his actual girlfriend) and now it seems her ex-fiance, and the very most pathetic contestant in Bachelor history, Brad Womack just won’t leave her alone!

Unfortunately those rumors about Emily dating Jeremy have led Brad to tirelessly drunk dial his ex! Brad “filled up her voicemail with messages of him crying, saying how upset he was that she was with someone else,” a source claims.

Us Weekly is now reporting that Brad “calls Emily every day and at all hours,” despite the fact that he is no longer interested in being romantically involved! “He doesn’t want her back,” a source explains – he just can’t lose her number!

“She just doesn’t pick up. They actually haven’t spoken for months,” the source continues. “She feels like he is so messed up!” Um, you are not alone in thinking that, Emily!

While one Bachelor couple has ended in despair, another one seems to be happily dating! Season 12 Bachelor Matt Grant and Bachelor Pad winner Natalie Getz are apparently a couple.

A close friend of Natalie’s discloses that the pair are “100 percent dating!”

The couple allegedly got together, not at one of zillion Bachelor-family reunions, but at their Local LA Starbucks after they kept randomly bumping into each other! Kinda nice, actually. A friend of Matt’s informs us, “They always saw each other, so one day he was like, ‘Let’s hang out,’ because he thought she was fun. It was totally organic.”

“It’s still new, but they’ve gone out a few times and are seeing how things go,” the friend continues. “Their friends think they’re a good match.” Best of luck to the new couple. And best of luck to Emily in getting away from her stalker Brad!

Thoughts on Brad calling Emily obsessively, despite not wanting her back? Crazy, desperate, or kind of sad? Are you happy for Matt and Natalie?


It’s no secret (though it is a komplete surprise) that the Kardashian Konglomerate is a big-moneymaking business. Led by Pimp Momager, Kris Jenner Kardashian, the family has raked in millions starting with a little thing like an accidentally leaked sex tape. Well, I have more bad news…

After earning a reported $65 million in 2010, it seems the Sisters Kardashian are slated to make… wait for it: $200-$300 MILLION dollars in the the next year alone from their Kardashian Kollection for Sears. But it gets better as they are predicted to be closing in on a Billion-Dollar empire in the next 2 years!

Brian Dow, a partner at APA Talent and Literaly Agency who reps the brands komprised of the Kardashian Kingdom, tells Women’s Wear Daily: “The Kardashians could easily be a billion-dollar business worldwide in the next two years.”

Especially since they are planning to take their Sears Kollection global with markets in the U.K., Italy, and Australia. I feel so bad for those other countries. Or should I say kountries? Wow – that’s an incredible payout for such cheap and tacky clothes!

In addition to dressing like the sisters, people apparently want to smell like the Kardashians too, as their fragrance lines are huge money-makers!

“Kardashian is the type of brand that can afford to be everywhere — we’re not concerned about overexposure,” says Philip Zellner, CEO of Lighthouse Brands, the company that produces the Kardashian fragrances.

“Everyone who watches and reads about them feels like they know them, that they’re part of their family. There is an aspirational aspect that the consumer looks up to, as well as the day-to-day drama,” Mr. Zellner believes.

Because according to Mr. Zellner, the four fragrance lines kreated by the Kardashians – three (and a fourth on the way!) from Kim and one unisex fragrance from Khloe and husband Lamar Odom – are expected to generate $50M! Who is buying this stuff?! I am seriously perplexed!

So, just to break it down in the next couple years these ladies could be raking in close to a billion dollars! Kue the lawsuits that will likely be rolling in… especially considering they are already being accused of kopy-katting.

Did you feel nauseous after learning about the prospective income the Kardashians may earn pedaling their wares? Have you ever a purchased a K product? Would you?

On last night’s episode of The Rachel Zoe Project, Jerewhinah tried and tried his damndest but the numbers just didn’t add up. Rachel was honored by The Hollywood Reporter as the top stylist in the world and they styled a huge Elle Magazine bikini shoot.

Rachel is strategizing with Joey and Jerewhinah on an upcoming Elle Shoot. The idea is bikinis, big costume jewelry and old Hollywood glam. Original.

While Rachel is doing what she does best: working, Rodger is doing what he does best: complaining! Rodger goes to his buddy’s house to have coffee and whine about how busy and self-absorbed his wife is and to obsess about how he can’t control her. He doesn’t want to be Mr. Mom; he just wants Rachel to sit at home and pop out babies ala Donna Reed.

We are very sad to report that Apprentice and Ultimate Merger star Omarosa Manigault’s brother Jack Manigult was murdered last Sunday morning in his hometown of Youngstown, OH.

The local newspaper reports that Jack, 40, was shot several times, including a fatal shot to the head, after his home was broken into by a man who was previously dating Jack’s current girlfriend.

Omarosa has asked for privacy during this time and released the following statement: “We thank everyone for their amazing outpouring of support surrounding the tragic death of my brother Jack. … Right now it is an extremely difficult time and we ask that you allow family privacy to grieve and make all necessary arrangements.”

The assailant, Marco Cardenas, who is currently on probation for a felony breaking and entering case, forced his way into the home of Jack Manigault and ran into the bedroom where he fired several shots. He was arrested shortly after the murder and found armed.

Jack, who served a 2 ½ year prison sentence for aggravated assault and was arrested in 2003 for obstructing official business and possession of drugs and weapons, has since turned his life around according to family.

Of her brother, Omarosa remembers: “My brother was so special to us! We loved him unconditionally and we were so proud of him when he turned his life around and gave his life to God two years ago.”

Our sympathies are with the family in the wake of this incredible tragedy. May he rest in peace.

On last night’s episode of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, the ladies went back in time to West Beverly High to relive their high school days of catty drama, cliques, and mean girls. Oh, I love a good time warp! The only thing missing was some killer acid wash jeans and a pouf bang!

Lisa and Ken are preparing for a dinner party to celebrate the return of Pandora and Jason from NYC. Lisa is cooking dinner (yes, it appeared that she was actually preparing food sans chef) whilst Ken assisted with the wine tasting. Lisa’s son Max got on the phone with his girlfriend and dropped an “I love you” leaving Lisa in a tailspin. While she is all but marching Pandora down the aisle, she isn’t sure about some other girl stepping on her toes where Max is concerned!

From domestic divas to people who don’t know what their microwave looks like, Taylor is making cookies from a box and needs Dana’s help. Both ladies don aprons and then poke at a bowl of unconvincing looking batter while lamenting about Adrienne’s BBQ where the notorious c-o-c-k incident occurred! Taylor mentions the upcoming “Game Night” she was supposed to host at her house but asks if Dana can take over since she has too many … issues going on. Event planner Dana is fine with hosting the big event, but will be outsourcing the planning cause she’s too busy. Keep in mind, Dana’s career is Event Planning and she supposedly has put on events like the Grammy’s.
