The classiest (bwhahaha!) family on television is up to more antics. First up the never-ending Kris Humphries vs. Kim Kardashian divorce saga continues to rage on.
These two are taking their vitriol out on others by subpoenaing every single person the other one has ever met; from ex-girlfriends, to former hookups, to the clerk at the drugstore where Kim bought condoms and lip gloss (OK, I added that last part).
You know, Kim met the President – is he next on the list? Anyway, anyone remember Kim’s former publicist Jonathan Jaxson? You know, the famewhore one who was threatening to write a Kardashinan tell-all and claimed that the engagement ring Kim was sporting was actually purchased by her while she was dating Reggie Bush? He also said her wedding was a publicity stunt.
On last night’s Sister Wiveswe were treated to two family filled episodes. In the first, we are introduced to Kody’s brothers. In the second, the older teens are highlighted, and I must say I really like them.
Kody’s brothers arrive to take on Vegas. The family is gathered at Meri’s house. The wives haven’t seen his brothers since the family moved from Utah. We are introduced to Scott and Curtis, and the three Brown brothers head off on motorcycles with Curtis joking he’s going to pick up some ladies. It’s hilarious because Curtis is monogamous unlike his older brothers.
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 GellerJacques 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.”
But we’ll let you be the judge. Below is the video of Jill’s cameo!

In fact, the 19-year-old MTV reality star took to her twitter page to gush about her boyfriend. “I love my perrrrrfeeeect lover @kyleking100,” tweeted Maci this week to her over 170,000 followers.
It also seems marriage might be on the horizon for Maci as the latest issue of OK! magazine reports she wants to marry Kyle.
“Maci would love to get married and thinks planning a wedding would be fun,” an insider close to Maci tells OK!. “She’s gotten a few brides magazines and says they’re addictive.” Maci, mother of 2-year-old son Bentley, is said to be open to having more kids. “She does want more babies when the time is right,” adds the insider.
As for Maci’s ex/baby daddy Ryan Edwards, he appears to be okay with Maci’s new relationship. “I’ve moved on, too, so it doesn’t bother me,” said Ryan. “She can be with whoever she wants.”
In the meantime, Maci is setting her sights on Dancing With The Stars, as in she badly wants to appear on the show. Sources tell UsWeekly she is really “hoping she’ll get asked to be on DWTS” and that “her people are pushing hard for it.”
Well if Bristol Palin can do it…

In tonight’s episode, the housewives take a trip to Venice, Italy sans Danielle Staub. Caroline, Teresa and Jacqueline head to Venice for a family vacation and are excited to explore the city on water. The three and their crew enjoy all that the city has to offer but are upset by their non-singing gondola guys! Will the ladies make it through the trip in one piece or will the famous Housewife drama follow them across seas? Find out tonight at10/9c on Bravo.
Also coming up in tonight’s episode is the Joe Giudice DWI arrest. Joe was arrested back on January 14th for driving under the influence, and as we reported yesterday, he has been sentenced for his driving offense.
However in a preview clip for tonight’s new episode, Joe denies he was drinking that night, even though his blood-alcohol content after the crash was .11 percent, above the .08 percent at which a motorist is considered intoxicated in New Jersey.
This isn’t the first time Joe has had driving issues, as his driving license has been suspended an astonishing total of 9.4 years out of the last 20 years. As for Joe’s sentence, the judge “imposed $864 in penalties; revoked his driver’s license for 12 months; and ordered him to perform 30 days community service. A 30-day jail sentence was suspended, providing the community service is completed.”
UPDATE – Thanks to our reader Bryan, Danielle Staub is now denying to HollywoodLife that she tweeted Jacqueline’s daughter Ashley Holmes should kill herself.
This all began last week when a twitter user @PrinceEdwiin tweeted to Danielle that it was his birthday and he wanted “Ashley Holmes to kill herself and videotape it.” Danielle then replied to him saying: “happy birthday. May every wish come true!”
Well Danielle’s stupid defense is now that she doesn’t read every single tweet sent to her and that she sometimes barely reads what is said to her, adding that “I never tweeted that Ashley should kill herself! I would never wish death upon Ashley! I can’t stand the fact it has gotten this far.” Umm then who made the tweet Danielle?
Danielle also seems to be confused about how twitter works as she wonders how @PrinceEdwin was able to tweet to her since he doesn’t follow her. Umm will someone please inform Danielle people who don’t follow you can tweet to you?

American Idolfinally pared down to its top 12 finalists last night in what most are calling a shocking elimination.
Out of the four singers eliminated, many viewers were shocked to see Lilly Scott (top right), and Todrick Hall (top left) leave. The two singers earned rave reviews for their performances this week.
“I thought that I was appealing to a lot of people,” said Lilly. “A lot of incredible talent is going home tonight. I don’t know what America wants to hear.”
Teen power seemed to be come out on top of the show last night as teen singers Katie Stevens, 17 and Aaron Kelley, 16, made it to the top twelve.
And now the real competition begins! The judges have already declared Crystal Bowersox, 24, of Toledo, Ohio and Michael “Big Mike” Lynche, 26, as the two to beat.
A photo of the top twelve is below –

Could the King of Radio be making his way to American Idol? It seems so as Howard Stern confirmed on his Sirius Satellite radio show Monday afternoon that he is indeed being considered as a possible replacement for Simon Cowell when American Idol’s tenth season begins in 2011.
“There’s not a better job on the planet than judging that f—ing karaoke contest,” Stern said. “It might be possible, we’ll see,” he said, adding: “They’d have to pay me a ton of dough because I already make a ton of dough.”
This seems even more possible as Howard’s five-year, $500 million contract with Sirius expires at the end of this year. So how much does Howard need to replace Cowell? “A $100 million to judge a karaoke contest? Yeah, I would do that show for $100 million,” said Stern referring to a Fox news report that Idol would need to match his current salary.
$100 million a year salary however seems highly unlikely as even Cowell was not earning close to that.
Stern also reveals he would no longer do radio if he got the AI job, “If I do say do myself, I can’t imagine anyone else but me replacing (Cowell),” Stern said. “I mean, I don’t know. How else are they going to make that show work? Who knows how to broadcast and who knows how to be interesting? And who’s not afraid to speak their mind?”

More details are coming out about the Bachelorstaffer involved in the affair scandal with contestant Rozlyn Papa. The said staffer, Ryan Callahan (pictured above), was a Senior Producer on the show. He has also worked on other shows including The Bachelorette, PussyCat Dolls and The Cougar.
According to E! News, Callahan “had a girlfriend that worked on the show at the time. They were together, and he cheated on her with [Papa].” The girlfriend has since broken up with him since details of the affair hit. RadarOnline also reports Callahan is still married, though his wife filed for divorce in May 2009.
And while 28-year-old Papa continues to maintain that she did not have a sexual relationship with Callahan, others continue to say things did get physical with Callahan. Jake Pavelka says in an interview airing Monday on the Ellen DeGeneres Show that other women in the house came up to tell him they had seen Rozlyn and Callahan getting physical with each other.
So what exactly does physical mean? Well recently eliminated contestant Ashley Elmore shed some light on that during a recent interview. According to Ashley, she heard her costars say they saw Rozlyn “snuggling” and “cuddling” with the producer, including lying on a couch with her hand on his thigh.
Jake also says he had began to develop feelings for Rozlyn. “I had strong feelings for Rozlyn,” says Pavelka, 31. “We had an unbelievable date.”
