Last month, Kenya Moore showed up at a Kenya Moore Hair Care event with a new man by her side, Eugene Casciaro. A quick peek at Eugene’s social media accounts tells me that he owns a truck dealership – based out of Atlanta – and enjoys outdoor activities. There are quite a few pictures of Eugene and Kenya spending time together between their Facebook and Instagram pages, which begs the question, has Kenya’s “unlucky in love” streak ended?
Well, um, you be the judge… yesterday, Radar Online “exposed” Eugene‘s “dark past,” which consisted of being arrested and charged with simple assault and battery and making terroristic threats. In 2007. The report added that the Real Housewives of Atlanta star’s new boo “terrified an innocent couple and caused chaos” at a high-end sushi restaurant in Atlanta back in 2007.
When asked why she joined Dancing with the Stars, Tamar says, “After I had my baby, I kind of slowed down a bit and I just wanna put a pep in my step.” In rehearsal, Tamar and Val Chmerkovskiy are having fun together. Tamar says Val’s like an annoying little brother, adding, “Val and I are both outspoken <side eye>, but I’m happy to have the current champion as my partner.”
Tamar and Val dance the Quickstep to “Do Your Thing” by Basement Jaxx. The choreography is no joke – very courageous for week one – but Tamar nails it. So far, I think Tamar is the total package – spunky personality, good work ethic, and killer moves. Check out the video below.
Kim‘s plea bargain included 30 days of community labor, but Kim’s attorney argued that the former Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star wasn’t able to do manual labor because of a foot injury. <insert all the eye rolls here> Kim had until today to cough up a note from her doctor. Apparently, Kim failed to provide proof of a foot injury. Not to mention, the judge was probably like, if your foot is well enough to walk all over town in search of Xanax, your foot is well enough to pick up trash on the highway. Suck. It. Up. Buttercup.
There’s a lot of good TV on tonight – Dancing with the Stars, Real Housewives of Orange County, and Ladies of London, oh my! Thank goodness for the DVR! – but Kim Zolciak‘s debut on Dancing with the Stars is my top priority tonight. And I assume the live TV seven second delay will be ABC‘s #1 priority.
While Kim‘s #$@%! mouth will keep ABC busy Monday nights, Tony Dovolani has been tasked with trying to keep the Don’t Be Tardy star on her toes (well, anywhere but on her ass, eating pizza and drinking wine).
Tony said he’s happy with Kim so far, adding, “She’s got a great attitude. Just getting to meet her was a pleasure because in watching her show over all these years, you kind of have an idea of what this person is. And then you meet them and you go, ‘Oh, OK, hold on they’re different,’ or, ‘They’re the same.’ And in this particular case, she is exactly what she’s like on TV. And that’s pretty cool.”
Another day, another not so VAVOOMSHABANG update on Kim Richards.
Last week, the former Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star took to Twitter to declare herself sober, then she reportedly dedicated the next several days to trying to score Xanax from smoke shops in Sherman Oaks. Kim was relentless in her quest, too, going from one shop right to the next and hitting up the same store more than once. That must have caused 100% pain with a foot injury.
