According to a new report, Marlo Hampton is the newest castmember of the Real Housewives of Atlanta!

The StraightFromTheA blog broke the news this week as Marlo stepped out to attend an event with RHOA alums Sheree Whitfield, Phaedra Parks and Cynthia Bailey.

And in case you’re wondering, pictured above with Marlo is her fiance NFL Player Charles Grant. And if that names rings a bell to you, it’s because Charles has been heavily rumored to have had a fling with a certain Ms. Nene Leakes. In fact, Nene was rumored to have gotten pregnant for Charles just back in December.

Both Nene and Charles denied the rumors back then but with Bravo’s strategic casting of Marlo, one has to wonder if those rumors were true after all. The StraightFromTheA blog speculates that Marlo was brought on to stir up some trouble with the Nene. Even more interesting, Marlo is said to be a stylist who has styled Nene in the past plus she has an arrest record for assaulting anther female, reportedly over a man.

And as was reported a while back, all of the Atlanta housewives from last season are returning this season so Marlo is not replacing anyone on the show. There had been some rumors that she was brought on to replace Nene but those are false. Marlo’s casting also makes sense as a report came out a month ago stating Bravo is seriously in talks with both Nene and Kim Zolciak to give them their own spinoff shows a la Bethenny Frankel. And we all know what happened with Bethenny as she ended up not returning to the Real Housewives of NYC.

While Bravo has yet to officially confirm Marlo’s casting (they never do until a series is ready to debut), it’s safe to say Marlo is the newest Atlanta Housewife! That is unless Bravo has a change of heart and decides to give her the Fernanda Rocha treatment, aka demote her to an extra because she ended up being too boring. But judging from Marlo’s storyline, that is highly unlikely.

Jon Gosselin and girlfriend, Hailey Glassman have broken up, according to Extra. A source close to the couple confirmed the news to Usmagazine.  Just two weeks ago, both Jon and Hailey were spotted taking a romantic, PDA-filled carriage-ride in New York’s Central Park.

In a recent interview, Hailey revealed that she felt “emotionally abused” by Jon and that he is prone to “mantrums.” “I don’t know why I love him,” she said.

“They broke up the day she did that interview,” the source tells Us. “She told me it was gonna be over. She was just waiting to let him go.”

A couple of days ago, Jon announced that he was seeking spiritual counsel from Rabbi Shmuley Boteach. He admitted in a statement that he got “carried away by the challenges of fame” and yearns to “reconnect with my deeper, more spiritual, more altruistic self.”

While Jon is seeking spiritual help, we have a feeling that Kate Gosselin is having a funfilled day.

Update: According to Usmagazine.com, Rabbi Shmuley advised Jon to end his relationship with Hailey.  “I have advised him to end it with Hailey,” Shmuley tells the Post. “It is unacceptable to be in a relationship when he is still married and has to take care of kids who are hurting. It is not a healthy relationship.”

In addition, Jon plans to proclaim his severed ties with Hailey during a speech at the West Side Synagogue on Sunday. “Jon will either be remembered as a man who cheats on his wife and is intoxicated by fame, or a man who has fought to redeem himself,” Shmuley says.

Regis Philbin and Kelly Ripa had a special Halloween episode on Friday’s Live with Regis and Kelly, during which they spoofed some stars of reality television and pop culture.

Above is a pretty hilarious video of the two spoofing the now infamous public breakup between The Bachelor’s Jason Mesnick and Melissa Rycroft. Jason famously dumped Melissa during the After The Rose special. Both Jason and Melissa are now both happily engaged to other people.

Regis and Kelly also spoofed the Real Housewives of New Jersey‘s Teresa ganging up on Danielle with Caroline, and flipping a table.
