A day after TMZ posted a video of her going on a racist tirade which had her using the n-word a total of 12 times in less than 2 minutes, Christina Hopkins is now apologizing for her shameful behavior.
The Bad Girls Club season 5 alum herself got in touch with us on Friday night, telling Reality Tea, “I apologize and take full responsibility for my foul remarks, which stem from a physical altercation.” Christina’s full apology is below -
“The video that was aired on TMZ is a careless and irresponsible rant that was egged on by anger and alcohol in response to a fight I was involved in over a year ago. Moments prior to the recording, I was subjected to racial slurs during a physical fight with a group of African American women. This is not a defense for such foul behavior; however, I take full responsibility for my inexcusable comments. Words cannot erase the pain that I have cause and I hope that those affected by my hurtful words can forgive me.”
Meanwhile, hours after the video hit the net yesterday, the Oxygen network revealed that Christina is now banned from ever appearing on their network again. The network told TMZ, “Oxygen condemns those comments… she will never appear on Oxygen again.”
And finally, Christina’s season 5 costar/nemesis/weak sauceAshley Cheatham is now speaking out against her. Ashley is furious at Christina’s comments, rightfully so, telling TMZ that “being drunk is not an excuse to bring out your inner racism. It’s disgusting and downright offensive … Go get a f**king life. Better yet, do the world a favor and go kill yourself.”
Christina’s signed letter of apology is below -
TELL US – THOUGHTS ON CHRISTINA’S APOLOGY? DO YOU BELIEVE SHE’S TRULY SORRY?
On this installment of the Real Housewives of New York, “The Mask has Two Faces,” Ramona and Jill butt heads, Sonja shows her butt, and Alex, LuAnn and Cindy are all but(t) forgettable.
This episode begins with a (yet another, yawn) photo shoot, this one to promote Ramona’s skin care line. Ramona admits that she’s often stiff in these situations, and her crazy eyes agree. This woman is hocking moisturizers and vino, but I think she should look into her own brand of shifty contact lenses. Her assistant Melissa tells Ramona she looks like a younger Pamela Anderson in the pictures. Huh? Of course, this comment comes on the heels of Ramona saying that she constantly goes through assistants. Ramona is pleased by the comparison, but this is the same woman who fancies herself an older Cameron Diaz, so clearly she has a skewed view of herself. Sonja arrives to help put Ramona at ease, but mainly she spends a ridiculous amount of time talking about how great her bum looks in her Ralph Lauren jeans.
Downtown, Jill stops by Cindy’s apartment, and I am amazed at how many people are on Ms. Barshop’s payroll. Assistants and nannies are coming out of rooms, closets, balconies, you name it—she has a full house. Cindy admits that she was up all night…hearing the kids crying with the nannies. My former “down to earth, relatively speaking” impression of Cindy no longer exists. The ladies dish about Ramona, and a much calmer than normal Jill is thrilled that Cindy seems willing to stand up to Ramona. Both Jill and Cindy acknowledge that most of Ramona’s friends are scared of her.

As we reported, Doug Wald of Los Angeles-based Raw Talent is claiming he helped Bethenny develop her Skinnygirl cocktail line only to be cut out of the company, which was sold for a reported $120 million to Beam Global in March.
In the court documents, Doug admits the Bethenny Ever After star fired him back in 2008 after managing her for just 3 months. He however feels he is entitled to 10% of the sale proceeds plus $100 million in punitive damages.
“Unfortunately, one of the signs of success is being the subject of frivolous lawsuits, like this one,” said Bethenny in a statement on Thursday. “This is simply someone with his hand out, who did nothing to earn it, and I am not going to be bullied. We are exploring all of our options, including filing counterclaims against these people.”
Doug also alleges in the suit that he was the one who introduced Bethenny to her Skinnygirl drink partner/liquor industry veteran David Kanbar.
Bethenny spoke out once again in a separate statement to PEOPLE. “Life is good for me with all the things that are most important, namely family. But let’s be clear, I am a strong woman, and I am not afraid and won’t back down when I’m bullied by something with zero merit. Success is earned by hard work, not taking advantage of others.”
Meanwhile, Bethenny is keeping her head up as she was photographed above walking the streets of NYC on Wednesday, the same day the lawsuit was filed. A bigger image of Bethenny below.

A source close to Jenelle confirms the news to Us Weekly. “She is clean right now and has been that way for several weeks,” the insider states. “She’s doing this program to help her cope with all the stress in her life: her family situation, her legal issues, her general anxiety.”
Ok Magazine adds that she began a voluntary 45-day stay at the Malibu drug rehab treatment center on May 7.
Patrick Jay Williams, a friend of Jenelle’s from her hometown tells OK! Jenelle’s past drugs of choice include pot and ecstasy. “She tries to find relief by using pot and Ecstasy. When she takes Ecstasy she gets the feeling that everybody loves her. And in truth, on this island, a lot of people hate her and are jealous of her,” said Patrick.
This doesn’t come as a major surprise as the 19-year-old MTV star has had plenty of run-ins with the law in recent times. In mid-April, she pled guilty to possession of drug paraphernalia with prosecutors promising to drop the charges if she performs 24 hours of community service. She was also sentenced to 12 months of supervised probation.
Jenelle, mother to son Jace, nearly 2, was originally arrested back in October with her boyfriend, KiefferDelp, when the two broke into an abandoned home in Oak Island, North Carolina, in order to smoke marijuana. Kieffer also has a past arrest for possession of cocaine.
And in March, she was arrested again for assault after TMZ posted a video of her attacking another girl. She was released shortly after on bond.
On Wednesday’s episode of American Idolthe Final Four remain and things got Gagalicious as Lady Gaga descended upon the competition from her home planet Gagalore, sans pants, to mentor the remaining contestants on glitz, glam, and all things related to being a truly fantastic performer. The show’s theme which seemed to be inspirations or legends, was about as hard to figure out as Lady Gaga herself, and had the Idol finalists choosing any song that inspires them and another from legendary songwriting duo Leiber & Stoller.
For the most part the judges felt each artist made his or her mark on the songs they chose. James Durbin nailed both his performances – especially Journey’s “Don’t Stop Believin” and Randy Jackson felt he was “having a moment” each time he sang.Haley Reinhardt covered Michael Jackson’s “Earth Song,” in round one, but had some difficulties since the song just wasn’t really compatible with her vocal range – Randy said it sounded like “screaming.” In the second round Haley majorly redeemed herself with a performance of Ben E. King‘s “I Who Have Nothing”, which got a standing ovation from the judges – another one! Haley’s big rock n roll voice is certainly perfect for the classics.
Country cutie Scotty McCreery – who seemingly can do no wrong on Idol – had two high notes with his performances: an emotionally charged rendition Alan Jackson’s of “Where Were You” that included him playing guitar and a hilarious Gaga-ized version of The Coasters’ “Young Blood.” Of course, the saucy humor he brought performing to his girlfriend, “the microphone” excited judge Steven Tyler who exclaimed: “You made Gaga’s yaya go lala.” Um… I’m not sure what a yaya is but something tells me it might not be family friendly! Keep it in check, Steven. Also, going Gaga was blue-plate special Lauren Alaina, whose performance featured a sparkle-encrusted ensemble that matched her spunky personality, and an amazing rendition of Elvis Presley’s “Trouble” which Jennifer Lopez dubbed “really, really good!”
Thursday night’s results show started with Jlo experiencing her weekly fashion fiasco with some scary drop-crotch MC Hammer looking pants as she walked out on stage and I think Steven was wearing a jacket with J.Lo’s face on it. Not sure – but something crazy was happening there!
With a whopping 72 million plus votes cast to determine who would be getting the deluxe trips home, Ryan Seacrest announced Lauren was the first person to make it into the Top Three. And then Idol teased us with not one but two celebrity performances and a sneak peak of Steven’s new very un-Aerosmith video. Seriously – I couldn’t stand the suspense! Ryan, finally, got around to announcing the rest of the results and Haley moved into the second safe spot. The final spot went to none other than Scotty, meaning the teenage girl army was out in full-force voting furiously by any means necessary.
Sweet, sensitive James was sent home leaving Jennifer in tears. James departed by serenading us with an emotional version of Paul McCartney’s “Maybe I’m Amazed” and reminding us to “give metal a chance!” James – America will totally give metal a chance and I agree with J.Lo, you are “magical!”
Next week the final three get to arrive via private jet for first-class hometown heroes visits. Do you think James should have been sent home? Who do you think will make the final two?
In the video posted by TMZ, Christina drops the N-word a total of 12 times in a drunken rant aimed at an African-American woman.
The video, which was shot at a diner in Staten Island last month, shows Christina going off on an unnamed person saying, “If you’re a black girl … you should shut up because you’re black … you’re a n**ger … nobody likes you… I’ve never met somebody who’s so n**gerish.”
Oh but it gets worse. One of Christina’s female friend then eggs her on as she laughs and the two women then begin to chant the N-word in unison.
Christina attempted to defend herself when called for comment by TMZ. “Some girls came up to me and said some racial remarks towards me [moments before] and this is what I said in retaliation” said Christina.
She added, “I apologize if anyone was offended, it wasn’t meant in a derogatory way.” Right because surely she meant it in a complimentary manner. The disgusting video is below -

On the 6th episode this season titled “A Mask For Two Faces,” the ladies bask at a mask bash when Sonja hosts a masquerade ball. In addition, Cindy goes to the dentist with Jill in tow, but Jill adds some bite by offering way too much input. And Ramona throws a wine party, but gossip spills over.
Ramona Singertweeted earlier today, “2nite Jill gets caught lying to me on RHONYC. Tries to get the whole thing bleeped out! Happens @serafinagroup 4 my #RamonaPinotGrigio party.” Should be an interesting episode!
It airs at 10/9c on Bravo and a preview clip is below.
