Luann de lesseps kids noel and victoria

A week after debuting a surprising new hair color, Real Housewives of New York City star Countess LuAnn de Lesseps is explaining why she opted for a new look!

LuAnn debuted her blonde hair last week during the premiere party for her latest video for the single Chic C’est La Vie. “I wanted to try something new,” said Lulu to Radar Online. “I’ve always wanted to be blonde. Every girl dreams of being blonde some time.”

LuAnn adds that she also made the change to look like a certain Miss Marilyn Monroe. “I wanted to look like Marilyn Monroe for a minute!” laughs LuAnn. “I’m definitely going to keep the new look for awhile.”

So does her beau Ross Geller Jacques Azoulay approve? That answer is yes! “He’s having fun with this other woman,” she jokes. And the mane expert responsible for Lulu’s blonde hair, Ted Gibson, also spoke out on her new look. Ted believes this new look makes the Countess look much much younger. “I think she looks 20 years younger. It looks sexy and fresh,” said Ted. Uh uh.

LuAnn is pictured above with her two kids Noel de Lesseps and Victoria de Lesseps at the June 29 premiere of Cirque du Soleil ‘Zarkana.’

In other RHONY news, Jill Zarin made her acting debut yesterday on USA Network’s White Collar. Jill played a speed dater on the episode and according to critics, her performance was lackluster. Gawker describes Jill’s acting debut as “underwhelming,” and the Hollywood Reporter stated viewers were “bewildered” by Jill’s acting citing some of the twitter comments below –

Kiki (@kikinitwithkiki): “Jill Zarin on #WhiteCollar? Oh, Jill, don’t quit your day job. #RHONY”

Grace Yu (@graceyu): “Why is Jill Zarin on #whitecollar?”

Rachel Leigh (@TheRachelLeigh): “What the heck is jill zarin doing in an episode of white collar? Im a fan of jill but celebrity-wanna-be much? #sticktoyourdayjob.”

TELL US – DOES LUANN’S BLONDE HAIR MAKE HER LOOK 20 YEARS YOUNGER? THOUGHTS ON JILL’S ACTING DEBUT?

Bristol Palin has been referred to as this season’s Kate Gosselin on Dancing With The Stars, and according to a new report by TMZ, the Alaska teen is living up to Kate’s diva reputation.

TMZ reported this weekend that Bristol has been missing a lot of practice with her professional dance partner Mark Ballas. Sources close to Mark tell the site that he has been complaining about Bristol missing practices and is worried her performance on the show will be “embarrassing.”

Mark reportedly canceled last Monday’s rehearsal because of a party for his mother, then Bristol canceled on Tuesday because she had committed to giving a speech, and canceled on Wednesday because her son, Tripp, was ill. Bristol was also only able to practice a half day on Thursday.

The good news seems to be that Bristol did practice a full day on Friday, and Mark is said to have been impressed with her Friday practice.

In other Bristol news, Popeater is reporting that Bristol wants nothing to do with her ex Levi Johnston, and is demanding he be barred from the audience.

“The last thing in the world Bristol wants is to look up from her cha-cha-cha and see his big goofy grin looking at her,” a family friend tells Popeater. “This is her time to shine and she doesn’t want him trying to steal her spotlight.”

frank_the_entertainerA Basement Affair Kerry Schwartz

There seems to be a trend with VH1 reality love shows, a contestant wins the heart of the bachelor, only to have him never call or contact her again.

Well the finale of Frank The Entertainer In A Basement Affair aired tonight with Kerry Schwartz winning the heart of Frank The Entertainer aka Frank Maresca. The story however ended a little differently as Frank called Kerry 3 days after picking her to break up with her, letting her know he was still in love with his ex-girlfriend.

This was the same guy who mentioned several times on the show that he was looking for “true love.” Evidently true love means a VH1 paycheck. Plus anyone else notice how he showed zero emotion over Felicia leaving? Perhaps that should have been a hint. In a new interview with VH1, Kerry talks about her heartbreak with Frank, the state of her friendship with Cathy, and what she hopes will happen in the future between her and Frank.

Excerpts from Kerry’s interview is below –

What has your communication with Frank been like since the show?

When the show first ended, it was great for about three days. But then, Frank broke up with me because he said he wanted to give his ex-girlfriend another chance. I feel like Frank didn’t really give me a chance at all. You know, I always wanted to make it work with Frank. We saw each other a few times after the show. It’s really hard to hang out in a normal environment because you’re constantly hiding from people and you have to keep it a secret, so we weren’t allowed to go out in public places and hang out like normal people and have fun together. We were stuck in a hotel room whenever we hung out, and there’s only so much you can do in a hotel room. I guess you can say we kept more of a phone relationship for a little while, but I started to give up on him being that he would always talk about how amazing his ex-girlfriend was, and I felt like he still wasn’t over her. He told me all the time he’s still in love with her mentally, whatever that means. I’m not really sure.

Have you talked to him recently?

We’d stopped talking for about two months, but yes. Frank and I still talk now, but we talk as friends. It’s kind of hard for me to talk on the phone with Frank though, because I really liked Frank, I don’t know about any of the other girls, but I did. He would just talk to me about hanging out with other girls in his hotel room and stuff like that, and I just didn’t want to hear that. I tried to not speak with him anymore for a little while, because I felt like every time I spoke to him it would just hurt my feelings.

Are there hurt feelings, or any resentment?

There’s no resentment, but I feel like Frank didn’t really give me a chance. I feel like on the show he saw that I was trying so hard with all these crazy challenges and all these other girls. I think if any woman goes through all those things for a guy, that should prove something to them, but sometimes I feel like maybe I just wasn’t enough for him.

Did competing on this show change your friendship with Cathy? You two came in as friends.

Before the show started, we made a pact that no matter what happened, we wouldn’t let it affect our friendship. When I found out that Cathy slept with Frank, I was really disappointed in her, but at the same time I was like, OK I have to think about the situation that we’re in. I thought about leaving for a second, but I thought I’d made it too far to leave. Cathy and I are really, really good friends. We’ve grown so much closer since the show is over. Frank actually didn’t want me to talk to Cathy or any of the other girls after the show, but I absolutely fell in love with so many of the other girls on the show. I love so many of them. There’s no way that I wouldn’t keep in touch with them, so that’s also like a really big issue. Cathy and I talk to each other every day. We see each other all the time, and she’s just a really great person.

Do you really see yourself staying in touch with Frank?

At the end of the day, I’ll always remain friends with Frank. I’m always here for him. We’ll see what happens. I’m still talking to him, so we’ll see what happens. I think I have a better relationship with Cathy right now than I do with Frank, though.

It also seems Kerry has gotten over her shyness as she posted some very sexy photos of herself on her facebook page. Some of the photos are below –

More problems for Nene Leakes, star of the Real Housewives of Atlanta as her son Bryson Bryant was arrested this weekend on a drug charge, and failure to show up to court.

This isn’t Bryson’s first run in with law, as he was arrested back in 2008 for a sexual offense. No word yet on what happened with that case. Perhaps his failure to appear charge might be in relation to that.

According to the Gwinnett County arrest records, Bryson Rashard Bryant was arrested for possessing less than an ounce of marijuana. He was arrested on Sunday, March 7th and has yet to be released.

The 3rd season of the Atlanta Housewives begins filming this month.

UPDATE: Nene released the following statement regarding her son’s arrest – “Like any parent, I am disappointed with the actions and arrest of my son, Bryson. Certainly, my husband and I will deal with this family issue in a private manner. My son is not the first young adult to experiment with marijuana, and he certainly won’t be the last. Still, as parents, this is a chance for us to have an open dialogue with him about the dangers of any substance abuse. I realize as a parent that my job is never done. And as I’ve tweeted, tough love was in order. Still, I ask that you respect our privacy during this trying time.”


the-bachelor-14-ella-nolanthe-bachelor-14-Vienna-Girardi

One thing is clear this Bachelor season, and that is Vienna Girardi is the least popular girl in house. Vienna seems to however have one fan in recently eliminated Ella Nolan, who says she would be okay if Jake Pavelka picked the 23 year old Florida native.

“The show is ultimately his decision,” Ella, a 30-year-old Tennessee hair stylist, told UsWeekly. “What he sees in Vienna, none of the rest of us girls were there on their date when they were alone. She is different when she is with him than she was in the house with us. I can see him just not taking the girls word for it when he is not seeing it on his own.”

Ella believes Vienna “is one of the women that if she thinks a certain way, or feels a certain way, she comes out and says it.” Ella continues, “I think it kind of rubbed some of the women the wrong way, but then she would apologize for it later. I liked her.”

When it comes to whom she would pick for Jake if the decision was up to her, Ella says she would choose Tenley for Jake, 31, but she also believes Gia and Ali have formed strong connections with him. Ella also predicts Corrie will be the next one to go.

In other news, photos of Vienna, who has been heavily rumored to make it to the final 2, continue to leak online. There are also rumors she had a boyfriend before coming on the show, but there is no solid confirmation of that.

Below are some photos of Vienna before The Bachelor courtesy of Starcasm, including a topless picture of her as well as pics with her boyfriend/ex-boyfriend –

Danielle Staub, star of the Real Housewives of New Jersey is making some changes and proclamations in her life. In a new interview, the 45 year old reveals she is abstaining from sex until marriage.

“I’m abstinent now,” she reveals to PEOPLE. “I realized that with abstinence, if you really, really believe in yourself like I do, you discover your own self-worth. Abstinence means you refrain from any sex — thinking about it, doing it — even to yourself! I’m a born-again virgin.”

Danielle, who’s past as an escort and drug user was revealed during the last season of the New Jersey Housewives series, claims it’s been “over a year-and-a-half” since she’s had sex. “I am saving myself for marriage. I didn’t do it the first two times but I learned from my mistakes. So now, it’s okay to wait,” she says.

So does this mean she’s looking to get married right away? “Marriage is a goal of mine but not because I need it, but because I want it. It’s a big difference.” Danielle reveals she’s however not out there prowling for a Mr. Right, “I will never find him, he’ll find me. I think the right one will see me. I want old-fashioned courting.”

In the meantime, Danielle is keeping herself very busy while abstaining from sex. It might be safe to say abstinence has opened up a whole lot of free time for the mother of two. Danielle says she is now focused on managing her daughter’s new found career as Christine Staub is now an IMG model, and she plans on releasing her autobiography, The Naked Truth, in the spring.

And she’s not stopping there. Danielle will also be releasing a fitness and nutrition video, as well as an athletic-inspired clothing line in the spring. And oh yeah, the 2nd season of the Real Housewives of New Jersey is set to premier sometime during the spring.

khloe-kardashian-lamar-odom-2

Khloe Kardashian is moving fast ahead with her wedding plans! The Keeping Up With The Kardashians star will reportedly wed her NBA player beau, Lamar Odom, this Sunday after 15 seconds a month of dating.

According to PEOPLE, the wedding ceremony is being thrown together so quickly that guests are being notified by phone that formal invitations will arrive this week.

The wedding will take place at the L.A.-area home of music manager Irving Azoff, multiple sources confirm to Us. Azoff, is described as being a family friend of the Kardashians.

Sources also say the couple went ring shopping over the weekend – and found a sparkler that Khloe liked. Khloe, 25, and Lamar, 29 met at a party in L.A. about a month ago.

Earlier this month, Lamar gushed to US that he was “very happy” with the star of Kourtney & Khloe Take Miami. “Khloe is smart and beautiful and that is very hard to find,” he added.

There are also rumors the couple will wed without a prenup, because Khloe allegedly refuses to sign one. Lamar recently signed a four-year, $33 million contract with the Los Angeles Lakers. Perhaps Khloe’s not so dumb after all.
