Kelly Bensimon just has so much cray-cray to spew forth into the world I can’t keep up! In her newest round of inane interviews, Kelly dispenses some unique and special advice to Real Housewives of New York’s newest housewives and reflects on her own experiences on the show! Oh and she talks about getting FIRED!

“I’m not angry,” Kelly explained to PEOPLE in regards to being terminated. “I had a great opportunity. I mean, three years! Three years I’m on television. … The show is on all over the world and we’re still going to be on for a long time. It’s like the Baywatch of Housewives. For me, it’s just the gift that keeps on giving.” Baywatch of Housewives? I just can’t…

“I have a really kooky life and I’m not going to make apologies for it. I have a lot of fun and I make a lot of mistakes,” she describes of her experiences on the show. You can say that again!

The good news is Kelly seems understanding about being let-go; which is a great attitude (ahem, Silex!). “The show started off in one way and it needs to take a different direction because that’s the nature of the TV beast,” Kelly mused. “I’m excited to watch it. It’s going to be great.”

As for the new ladies, who Bravo has yet to announce, Kelly explains: “I don’t know them, but I’m sure they’re going to be very interesting, lovely women.” She also has some advice for the newest housewives: Anything she would do, do the opposite! Kidding, kidding!

“Make as many mistakes as possible,” she advised. “Do anything that you can do that you can learn from your mistakes. Because if you don’t learn from your mistakes then you’re what? Boring!” Yeah, but is boring better or worse than insane?

Kelly also assures us her career in reality TV is far from over! “I love doing reality because for me, I just have a really good time,” Kelly revealed, seemingly forgetting about Scary Island and that whole “systematic bullying” thing. “I just want to keep growing and showing my kids that out of anything bad comes something great.”

In other fired housewives news, the unstoppable Jill Zarin is writing a book! After a fan Tweeted Jill enquiring if she was writing a tell-all, Jill replied: “Starting to write down the truth!” Actually if Jill wrote a tell-all, I would definitely read it!

Jill, who has been quite the busy little Tweeter lately, has also pledged her support to Teresa Giudice after Sunday night’s explosive reunion, giving credence to the three against one drama and seconding the rumor that Teresa had no idea Melissa Gorga and Kathy Wakile were on the show until after her contract was signed!

When a fan voiced their opinion that Bravo put Teresa’s family on the show for drama, Jill agreed, stating “100 percent true. @Teresa_Giudice had no idea till contract signed” Jill is fighting mad!

Jill also revealed that her salary was the reason Bravo decided to fire her! When a fan Tweeted:“@BravoTV couldn’t afford Jill Zarin anymore. Money can’t buy you class,” Jill responded: “Exactly! You are the first to figure out!”

That seems unlikely given the recent rumor that Countess LuAnn and Ramona Singer are making $500k for the next season! Maybe they couldn’t afford the perpetual headache Jill caused them…

THOUGHTS ON KELLY BENSIMON’S ADVICE TO THE NEWEST LADIES OF RHONY? WOULD YOU WATCH KELLY ON ANOTHER REALITY SHOW? ARE YOU SURPRISED JILL ZARIN IS PLANNING TO WRITE A TELL-ALL? ARE YOU EXCITED (OR IS THAT JUST ME)?

Kim Kardashian’s love life just never seems to work out – it’s just one unfortunate situation after another for the notorious sex-tape star and this time her marriage to Kris Humphries-Kardashian may be in big-time trouble! Their marriage has been plagued by rumors of tension since day one and it seems like things aren’t improving for the couple!

Life & Style is reporting that Kim is “miserable” and she and Kris are always fighting. In fact, Kim was recently overheard complaining to a friend over mani-pedis at Clover Nails in NYC, that she “didn’t know marriage was going to be so hard.” Wait – wasn’t she married before?

“With all this travel and work, it’s been a big adjustment for both of us,” she lamented. Further breaking the couple apart is Kim’s impending travels to Dubai and Australia. Unfortunately Kris is “not invited!” “She’s leaving him behind,” a source reveals.

Apparently mere months after her publicity stunt wedding, Kim wants to cry time-out on her marriage! “She doesn’t feel like she’s ready for the commitment,” a friend confided to the magazine. “Kim feels this all happened too soon, that she didn’t take the time to get to know Kris. She’s embarrassed – she rushed into things, and now she’s stuck.” Yikes.

Additionally Kim fears Kris used her for fame just like she used him for money and publicity.“Kim is definitely worried that Kris isn’t mature enough and could be using her for her money – especially since he’s not working right now with the NBA lockout,” according to a source from Kourtney & Kim Take New York (that’s a show?).

His immaturity combined with no certainty about where the couple is going to put down roots as they wait for Kris to sign with a basketball team, has forced Kim to put her baby-making plans on hold. Kim is apparently very dissatisfied that the couple has no real home and is currently living in a fancy hotel in NYC. The horror!

The source reveals Kim wishes she could participate in traditional wifely duties, like cooking Kris meals, but he would rather ditch her for burgers with his buddies. Makes sense to me – can she even talk about anything but herself?!

However, let’s get real here, their marital problems actually lie in Kim’s fears that Kris is upstaging her in the reality TV world! “He tries to have creative input in Kourtney & Kim Take New York. It’s her show, and he tries to dominate it.” She’s the number one famewhore in this relationship – not him!

Perhaps Kim is holding off on filing for the big D until they can cash all the million dollar checks they amassed in her big Made-For-TV, fantasy wedding! At least she can console herself by snuggling her Benjamins!

THOUGHTS ON KIM’S MARITAL WOES? ANOTHER PUBLICITY STUNT OR IS THE COUPLE HEADED FOR DIVORCE?

Last night’s Real Housewives of New Jersey reunion from hell gave me stress-induced anxiety, like for real! I could not guzzle the wine fast enough! The rage was palpable and the ladies were down right dirty. This made RHONY’s reunion seem almost tolerable. Did I just type that?!

First of all, does anyone remember that notorious website Socialite Rank? Well, I wish we had a website devoted to Housewives Ranking, called of course, Housewives Rank, because if we did The Caroline and Teresa would be neck and neck for bottom of the heap after last night’s dreadful performance! Melissa had her moments of dirty as well, and for the most part Kathy kept her hands clean and imagined beautiful beaches and escape. Me too, Kath!

*Simple Disclaimer – I am a woman without a housewife – I play no favorites. I participate in equal opportunity snarking. All the ladies are ridiculous to a degree (yes, some more than others) and I like to spread the snark around!

Keeping Up With The Odoms? You bet! RumorFix is reporting Khloe & Lamar will be returning for at least two more seasons! Apparently the show, which debuted last year, was one of the E!’s highest rated shows ever, so now the network is anxiously planning seasons two and three. I’m so thrilled… yeah, that’s the word.

“Khloe is super excited to begin filming again. She wasn’t happy with the way some of the things turned out on last season and wants to make changes for the better for the second season,” an insider reveals. I guess she needs something to do on her days off from filming Keeping Up With The Kardashians and completing other assignments from her pimp momager, so why not do more reality TV!!

In preparations for filming the new season Lamar Odom and his bestie were seen meeting with producer Ryan Seacrest to discuss what direction they want to take the totally unscripted, authentic reality show.

I predict the new season will focus on Khloe’s struggles with fertility and the couple getting pregnant – particularly after In Touch has revealed Khloe is planning to undergo IVF treatments in the hopes of conceiving. “She knows that it will be expensive and take a lot of time, but this is what she wants,” an insider reports.

Disclosing her struggles with fertility on the Today show earlier this month, Khloe explained: “I never knew about ovulation and the limited amount of time you have to get pregnant. When you have schedules such as ours, it’s really hard to hit that mark.” She also expressed her fear that she may not be able to get pregnant.

“Lamar already has kids, so he’s not feeling the pressure, but for Khloé it’s very consuming,” the source describes. “She’s feeling a sense of anguish nearly all the time.” So she needs to slow it down and cut back on stress.

Well, in order to boost her chances of conception, Khloe has, allegedly, tried to distance herself from family stress as of late so she’s completely stopped mean Tweeting about Dancing With The Stars and hanging out with Kim, Kris, and Kourtney, “She’s avoiding all stress, and that includes her family drama,” an friend explains. Khloe has also cut back on drinking, is getting more rest, and improving her diet, but apparently it’s just not working.

The couple is trying some different techniques, like acupuncture and high-tech procedures, but if that doesn’t work they plan to start IVF soon according to the insider.

“After two years of being Lamar’s wife, she feels the time has come to be his baby’s mama!” a friend declared.

Best of luck to Khloe and Lamar – I hope they are able to fulfill their dreams of having a child.

Thoughts on E! renewing Khloe & Lamar for two more seasons? Will you be watching? Thoughts on Khloe’s struggles with fertility?

And now for your daily dose of Teen Mom Drama!

Leah Messer is claiming Teen Mom 2, the show that made her rich and sort of famous has ruined her life. Well, until she cashes that paycheck! “It’s making her life hell!” a friend reports to In Touch.

One of Leah’s dilemmas? She never gets a break from filming! “The crew often shows up unexpectedly and stays for a weeks at a time,” a friend explains adding that Leah tells friends she feels like she’s on the verge of a nervous breakdown. Leah is also terrified about the dangerous effects the production could have on her twin daughters, Aliannah and Aleeah.

The friend reveals that Leah feels “the show controls her,” and according to her friend, she “thinks MTV is determined to make her look like a bad mom.” The friend reports that the MTV producers allegedly manipulate the drama and make too many demands of Leah and her daughters – including stunts such as waking the twins up in the middle of the night for filming! What?! “One of the producers is so rude to the girls which makes Leah’s blood boil!” reveals a source.

Issue #3? Apparently, the mom of twins, who still has two-years left in her MTV contract, worries the producers will edit her to be “slutty” on the upcoming season by drawing negative attention to her divorce and her expansive post-divorce dating habits. Leah reportedly went through many menz before coupling up with current boyfriend, Jeremy Calvert!

Additionally Leah has concerns that the network’s portrayal of her dramatic divorce from Corey Simms, which was surrounded by allegations of cheating, will negatively affect her daughters.

All valid points! Hopefully MTV will make the responsible decision to handle the implosion of Leah’s marriage with dignity. Although, my moneys betting on NO for that!

Teen Mom 2 will return to MTV for an all new season in December.

Thoughts on Leah’s predicament? Do you believe the show has ruined her life? Feed bad for her?


After pleading for television gigs and insisting that she will never be able to provide for her brood turned up nothing, it seems mom of many, Kate Gosselin is taking her ex-husband’s advice and returning to nursing.

Kate, 36, tried and tried some more to become a TV star in her own right, even pitching television show ideas, but no job offers apparently came in, so with no where else to turn she is eating humble pie and pulling on some scrubs!

I know! Poor patients! If you recall, free bitch Jon Gosselin publicly chastised Kate’s refusal to let go of a life as a C-List celebrity; reminding her “reality TV is not a career.” Encouraging the woman who was his former partner in fame grubbing to “Get back to normal life, simple life, provide for your family, and go from there.”

After months and months of hanging onto the delusion that people want to see her mug on their TV screens screaming at her kids and throwing tantrums giving parenting advice or hosting talk shows, Kate has accepted it’s not going to happen. According to Life & Style the former terror of Kate Plus 8 has completed courses to renew her nursing Incense as a labor-and-delivery nurse. Pregnant women of Pennsylvania, you have been warned!

“She just completed more courses to renew her license,” a ‘friend’ reveals to Life & Style.”She has no clue how she’ll continue to pay for the kids’ private school and living expenses,” adds the pal of Kate’s decision to reconsider nursing ( though she has yet to find a job in that field either!).

Kate has laughed off claims that the family is rolling in the dough and became filthy rich through the series. “I read what we apparently make and it’s hysterical,” she told The Huffington Post. “[I've saved] for a little while. People think we made gazillions of dollars, and we didn’t.”

However previously released accounts of Kate’s monthly expenses don’t paint the portrait of a woman living on modest means! It’s been reported she spends as much as $500,000 per year on staff alone! She needs to employ that full-time bodyguard! For her safety…

“The bottom line is I have eight kids to provide for,” Kate recently admitted and I guess that is the bottom line. Although I find it very hard to believe Jon and Kate saved no money after several seasons on a very successful (at one point) reality show and several other accompanying endorsements, books, and media deals. I guess Kate’s GTH (Gym, Tan, Hair) regiment really costs a lot!

Do you believe Kate will actually return to nursing or is this just a last ditch effort to get networks interested in her plight? Is Kate desperate for attention or work?

UPDATE – So much for Kate Gosselin getting back to nursing and more importantly, getting off our TVs! Kate actually took to her twitter page to deny she is returning to nursing. “No truth,” tweeted Kate. “Renewed license when up for renewal. And that got it all going!”


Well we are almost to the end of the road with the most ridiculous season of Project Runway ever as the final five remain! This challenge determined which designers will be designing a collection for fashion week and who will be going home to wallow in despair while STILL designing a collection for fashion week, albeit forfeiting the $100,000 grand and the Piperlime endorsement.

Eyebrows McSequins decides to start his day off right with a steaming hot cup of bitch café as he rants about how Anya doesn’t deserve to be here and calling her out on her inability to thread a sewing needle. While I don’t disagree, no one is calling McSequins out on his complete inability to edit. Oh wait…

HBIC Heidi Klum informs the designers they will be meeting the delightful, yet clearly over it, Tim Gunn on Governors Island for the details on the challenge. There, Tim informs the designers that Governors Island will serve as inspiration for a thee-look mini collection that features a variety of looks (i.e. can’t be three cocktail dresses). The designers are given 1 hour, a map, and a golf cart (is this Amazing Race or PR?) to explore the island and sketch. I kept waiting for a golf cart accident, but it didn’t happen.

Can we all have a moment for Eyebrows McSequins Palm Beach on Crack Bermuda shorts? Oooohhh…lordy. That print!

Is she or isn’t she?

A new report claims Marlo Hampton, who was supposed to be the new wife on the block for Real Housewives of Atlanta is actually not going to make the cut!

StraightFromTheA blog is reporting that, while Marlo was originally slated to join as the seventh housewife, she has now been relegated to the “side-kick” role ala Brandi Glanville and Dana Wilkey of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.

This is possibly verified by the fact that Marlo was not included in any of the official Bravo promotional pictures or write-ups for the new season. And Phaedra Parks stated in a recent interview: “We’re almost finished filming, it’s still just the six of us, no one left and there is no new Housewife.”

The reason Marlo got downgraded? Apparently not only did she lie about her affiliation with supposed fiancé Charles Grant, she also has a pretty shady and violent criminal past! (oh no – Danielle 2.0!). Also she was supposed to bring the catfights with NeNe Leakes, but instead the two formed a friendship! A Bravo no-no!

Marlo’s criminal past is quite extensive, resulting in seven arrests, including a couple for aggravated assault and another for check fraud from her days living in Florida. Seriously! Sources say Bravo is claiming they did not know about her lengthy violent criminal history and when they were alerted to it through the blogosphere, were forced to reconsider adding her to the cast permanently to avoid being held responsible for any of her untoward (re: possibly illegal) behaviors! Hey, they’ve already got enough of that on their hands!

I find it very hard to believe that Bravo would not thoroughly and exhaustively background check their cast members – and I believe they do conduct those checks and then cast for maximum drama. I mean, you get a background check to work at Target!

In addition the number one reason Marlo was added to the cast was to create controversy with NeNe as a result of her relationship with Charles. Well, allegedly not only were Marlo and Charles never engaged and Charles refused to be implicated in her schemes; Nene KNEW their relationship was a fraud all along!

In fact, Marlo and NeNe allegedly pulled a fast one and buddied up against other ladies on the cast (although the recent trailer for the season shows them getting into plenty of disputes!) and Marlo also formed friendships with Phaedra and Cynthia Bailey in the hopes the network would keep her on anyways.

StraightFromTheA, who cites their source as “highly credible,” is also claiming that Marlo “didn’t have ANY of the qualifications that Bravo requests for inclusion on the show, i.e. married, divorced or in a long-term relationship with a baller/well-to-do mate, career, kids,” so Bravo simply lost interest in what she could bring to the show long-term. Um… chaos? But I guess with NeNe and Phaedra they’ve already got enough of that!

Marlo’s numerous mugshots are featured below.

Do you think there is truth to the rumor that Marlo will not be included in the cast or just an attempt to create buzz for the new season? Thoughts on Marlos’ background and supposed faux-gagement to Charles Grant?
