NENEuntitled

NeNe Leakes is squashing any rumors of her being cut from Bravo’s “The Real Housewives of Atlanta.” Rumors of NeNe and her frienemy Kim Zolciak have been circulating ever since unnamed sources told the New York Daily News that Bravo might drop them since they have become more demanding. In an interview with Sister 2 Sister, NeNe sets the record straight.

“This is all I can tell you—and I don’t want to talk about: Every housewife has been invited back,” NeNe revealed to S2S exclusively.

However, NeNe reveals that she has received some offers and has other options. In addition, her terms of agreement with Bravo is clear. If Bravo drops her from the show, she is free to pursue her other options but if she quits then she is out of luck until her contract expires. As far as contracts are concerned, all the housewives including DeShawn Snow signed up for several years at a time.

“They try to lock you in for a number of years,” she explained to S2S. “We all signed up for a third season when we signed on from day one. If anybody has been fired, nobody knows anything about it. We know nothing about it. I don’t know where the rumor came from.”

According to Daytime Confidential, the buzz around town is Bravo will be adding another housewife and the speculation is that former soap opera diva Victoria Rowell (ex-Drucilla Barber-Winters on The Young and the Restless) will join the cast. While this seemed like a crazy rumor, Victoria surprisingly doesn’t deny it! She gave the following statement when asked -

“In my career as an entertainer I get solicited to do quite a number of things,” Rowell began coyly with a giggle, “whether it be to write reviews for a fellow author’s book, or participate in reality programming. The question has been posed from time to time about me joining the Housewives franchise, whether it be in Atlanta or somewhere else. As you know, I now spend a lot time in Atlanta. I know the fans would love to see me on television again, whether it be on a soap opera or as a real housewife of Atlanta. So, you know, we’ll see. I always say, never say never!”

Not sure if Victoria has seen the show or not, but she might want to consider running far far away from this very entertaining trainwreck of a show.

Real Housewives of New York star, Bethenny Frankel is four months pregnant and isn’t showing any signs of slowing down anytime soon. In addition to shooting The Real Housewives of New York City series, she just completed the filming of her first exercise DVD. As if that wasn’t enough, she is also planning a book tour to promote her new book, The Skinnygirl Dish. In a recent interview with Life & Style, Bethenny reveals her pregnancy bump and talks of the excitement of being an expecting mom.

Below are excerpts from Bethenny’s interview:

L&S: Congratulations! Are you super excited?
Bethenny: I’m really excited. I’m starting to show a little bit. I don’t fit in my pants — it’s very liberating. Now I believe that I’m pregnant.

L&S: Have you gained a lot of weight?
Bethenny: Five or 6 pounds, but they’re right in my stomach. A lot of people think being pregnant is one giant binge, but you should check yourself before you wreck yourself. I’m not changing the way I eat. If I eat chocolate cake at lunch, I try not to have it after dinner. By no means is it dieting, but I’m trying to maintain some sort of balance because I’ll have to deal with it later. I’m actually thinking of writing a pregnancy book. There’s no reason to gain 75 pounds.

L&S: Do you feel like this is a miracle baby?
Bethenny: Absolutely a miracle. I’m not young, and I run around like a maniac. I always wanted to have kids, but I thought I’d wind up adopting or freezing my eggs. I didn’t think it would just happen at my age. Did I plan the pregnancy? No. Did I want it? Yes. I felt like there was something huge missing in my life that I hadn’t experienced yet.

TMZ is reporting that Jon and Kate Gosselin are officially divorced as of today. A Pennsylvania Judge has signed the final papers, making Jon and Kate officially single, not that being married has stopped Jon from acting like a single man for the past couple of months.

The details of who got what are sealed, but Kate’s lawyer confirmed to TMZ that Kate will continue to reside at the family’s PA home with the eight children. As for Kate, she says, “I am very relieved that our divorce has been finalized, and I look forward to the New Year, focusing on our children.” She called the divorce “challenging,” and says she will now focus on “restructuring our lives.”

The Jon & Kate Plus 8 dad was also ordered not to bring any firearms onto their property. The Montgomery County, PA judge gave the order as Jon showed up in court to face off against his former lawyer who is now suing him for non-payment. The court order came about as photos of Jon firing a hand gun at their PA property surfaced. As we reported earlier, a decision was rendered regarding how Jon & Kate should divide their money and other property. Kate was said to be thrilled with the results while Jon reacted by shooting a few rounds from his gun near the fence of the family’s PA home.

In other news, the National Enquirer is reporting that Jon owes his former girlfriend, Hailey Glassman, $90,000. Yes you read that right. According to the Enquirer, Jon was in dire need of cash after a judge demanded he return the $180,000 he withdrew from his joint account with Kate – or face contempt charges.

Apparently Jon had spent a most of the $180,000 and a large portion of the repayment came from Hailey’s life savings . Jon begged Hailey for the loan, saying that he didn’t want his kids to see him in jail. “Prior to the court order, Hailey heard the rumors that Jon took money out of the account,” said a close pal. “But Jon told her that it was all lies.”

But once the judge made his ruling on Oct. 13th, Jon “came crying to Hailey, admitting that he did take money – but he said he believed he was entitled to it – as his paycheck,” said the pal. Jon insisted he no longer had the cash, saying he had used it to pay off the women who claimed to have had affairs with him because he was afraid the accusations would hurt him in his divorce battle.

Hailey was reluctant to lend Jon the $90,000 – money she’d saved up since childhood from relatives, past jobs and also from her Bat Mitzvah. She eventually relented and lent him the money. “Jon promised to pay her back in full by January, but now he’s pleading for more time,” continued the pal.

The pal reveals Hailey no longer trusts Jon and plans to take action against him if he doesn’t pay her back by January. This story seems to be a new low, even for Jon Gosselin standards.

The Real Housewives of New Jersey star Teresa Giudice is making it obvious that she is not a fan of Bethenny Frankel, as Teresa is publicly slamming Bethenny’s nude PETA ad.

The two housewives’ beef started back in September when Bethenny told TV Guide that Teresa is her “least favorite housewife” because she is “whiny and unintelligent.”

Teresa twittered to her fans yesterday, “It’s cool if you like Bethenny. She probably didn’t give an interview to TV Guide that hated on you. Me, not so lucky.”

“To quote Bethenny: ‘I just threw up a little in my mouth,’” Teresa, 36, continued via Twitter Tuesday.

You can see Bethenny’s nude PETA photo here!

According to the New York Post, Bethenny boasted that she was already pregnant when the shots were taken and she was pleased with the outcome “because it doesn’t look like there’s been any airbrushing.”

Teresa on the other hand doesn’t agree. “Help me understand this,” she twittered. “Bethenny is happy with her naked pic because she was ‘already pregnant’ at the time. She says she’s now three months along, but she did the shot in August. Even if she’s four months pregnant now, she would’ve been, like, one hour pregnant in the pic.”

Teresa is actually a bit incorrect as Bethenny took the picture back in September, but point taken nonetheless. She continues, “Someone tell Bethenny that sperm does not make you look fat, and I’m not buying the airbrushing thing in any case.”

Teresa recently twitted Wednesday morning – “I love the curves my babies gave me! delicious! it makes me nervous when ppl obsess about weight when they are pregnant, esp only 1 hour pg!”

Ouch, something tells me we haven’t heard the last of this war of words between Teresa and Bethenny.

Controversy aside, one of the most appalling behaviors on MTV’s Jersey Shore was a teaser clip at the end of episode 1. The clip showed Jersey Shore star, Nicole Polizzi aka Snooki getting punched in the face by a man at a bar.

The man doing the punching has now been identified as Brad Ferro. Brad, a 24 year-old teacher at a New York City high school, was arrested for assault and disorderly conduct in August after hitting Snooki at the Beachcomber Bar & Grill, reports The New York Times. Because the school administrators were not notified, Brad continued to teach gym at North Queens Community High despite the offense.

Now, Brad has stopped teaching and has been placed into one of the Department of Education’s teacher reassignment centers, according to the New York Times. During the night of the incident, Seaside Heights Det. Steve Korman told the Post that the Bartender stopped pouring Brad a drink because he was intoxicated, so he took alcohol belonging to Snooki and her friends.

“That started a verbal altercation after which he struck her in the face,” Korman said. “She sustained an injury to the inside of her mouth due to the punch.”

The controversial show has been criticized by the Italian American community who believe it promotes negative stereotypes and use of the offensive words “Guido” and “Guidette.

MTV has also decided not to air the punch clip anymore in the upcoming episode 4. “What happened to “Snooki” was a crime and obviously extremely disturbing,” MTV said in a statement Friday. “After hearing from our viewers, further consulting with experts on the issue of violence, and seeing how the video footage has been taken out of context to not show the severity of this act or the resulting consequences, MTV has decided not to air “Snooki” being physically punched in next week’s episode.”

MTV said the episode will still make clear what happened that night and plans to air a message at the end of the show listing available resources for those in abusive relationships.

Italian actress Alyssa Milano also recently criticized the show. She told UsWeekly, “My husband actually showed me the trailer on YouTube last night, and I got upset,” she said. “It upset me. I was like, ‘Turn that off!’ So no, I don’t think I’ll be watching that!’”

UPDATE - The Punch Clip is below:

Melissa Rycroft is officially a married woman. The 26-year-old Good Morning America correspondent was dumped on national TV  earlier this year by The Bachelor winner – Jason Mesnick. Jason proposed to her on the finale, and then later changed his mind. All that drama is now in the past for Melissa as she exchanged vows Saturday afternoon in Mexico with fellow Texan – Tye Strickland.

“Tye is my best friend in the world, and now he’s my partner forever. We have had such a journey within our relationship, that to finally look at him and see my husband, gives me the calmest, most content feeling in the world,” Rycroft told In Touch Weekly. “I love him so much and am so excited for our forever to begin!”

Melissa got married in a beautiful Alfred Angelo gown. Tony Dovolani, Melissa’s dance partner on Dancing With The Stars and the Bachelorette’s Jillian Harris were on the guest list. Both Melissa and Tye dated on and off for a couple of years before finally reuniting earlier this year. We certainly wish them the best.

Kim Zolciak Soul TrainNene Leakes

The Real Housewives of Atlanta will return for a third season but some of the housewives may not be returning. According to a NYDailyNews report, NeNe Leakes and Kim Zolciak have become more demanding, requesting more money from Bravo to appear on the show. Bravo on the other hand isn’t willingly to succumb to their demands and may have plans to have the two “divas” replaced.

“Bravo has been taking meetings with some notable and wealthy Atlanta women about possibly joining the show,” says the insider. “They’re trying their best to keep the process under wraps, but they’re gearing up to make a major move in the third season.”

TMZ is also reporting that part of Nene and Kim’s demands includes having Bravo pay their electric bill, demanding an upgrade in flying from coach to first class, and they also want stipends for wardrobe, hair and make-up.

According to the source, Bravo wants the other housewives - Kandi Burruss, Sheree Whitfield and Lisa Wu to return as long as they like. “Kandi was a fan favorite last season. Her audience approval ratings were through the roof,” the insider explains. “And Sheree’s clothing line [She by Sheree] and her catch phrase, ‘Who gonna check me, boo?’ were definite standouts.”

“Things with NeNe and Kim have been intense,” says the source, “but Bravo feels the show is about the franchise as a whole and won’t let one person stop it.”

No one seems to be commenting including Bravo and reps for NeNe and Kim. I’m guessing Bravo leaked out this story as a ploy to tell Kim & Nene to get on board or else. The same thing happened right before the Real Housewives of NYC started filming, Jill Zarin allegedly wanted more money, and Bravo wasted no time casting for new housewives, threatening to replace Jill.
