On last night’s episode of Real Housewives of New Jersey the year may have changed, but everything is still exactly the same. Teresa can’t get along with anyone she is related to, by proxy or otherwise; Jacqueline can’t deal with Ashley, Caroline just wishes she had never gotten involved, and Melissa tries in vain to reason with crazy. Oh yeah, Kathy was there too – kinda.

The Caroline is back on the radio and she’s tawking about New Year’s Resolutions and Ashley calls in and said her resolution is to leave reality TV. I wish! The Caroline gets a call from a person who is being nice to someone who just won’t be nice back; Caroline encourages this person to continue to be good and pure. Guess who is coincidentally listening while wearing her fur coat? Melissa! Melissa, thinking – I’m a good and loving person dealing with someone who just won’t reciprocate, I will not be intimidated – calls Teresa to extend the Swarovski encrusted olive branch, and arrange a playdate between their girls.

Following weeks of will she or won’t she, the Daily Truffle blog is reporting that Camille Grammer is officially off the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.

This report comes as a surprise as E! News just reported two weeks ago that Camille would be returning.

The Daily Truffle is however a very reliable source when it comes to RHOBH news considering it first broke the news of the Beverly Hills franchise back in 2009 as well as the news of some of the cast members back in January 2010, well before the show even started filming.

According to the blog, Bravo has already re-cast a new housewife to replace Camille, meaning at least one new housewife will be on the show next season. There might be more as Kim Richards is also a question mark when it comes to a second season.

The site does not name Camille’s replacement though TMZ stated earlier this month that Bravo was in talks with Jeanie Buss, Brandi Glanville, and Jennifer Flavin Stallone as possible replacements.

It’s also not clear if Camille quit the show or if Bravo fired her. TMZ reported last month that some Bravo producers were upset with Camille as she had a history of quitting the show and then having a change of heart. Sources told TMZ back then that “Camille walked off the show several times during the taping, saying she was “done with the show.” In at least one case, scenes had to be shot without her. But every time, Camille had a change of heart and returned.”

In fact, Camille herself admitted last week that she did indeed quit the show at one point during filming, though the TMZ story stated Camille has quit the show more than once.

And also last month, TMZ confirmed Camille got her attorneys to force Bravo to let her out of her contract aka she wanted to quit, only for her to change her mind once Bravo released her from having to do a second season. Perhaps Bravo was tired of the back and forth.

This news would also make sense as Camille was reportedly wanting to do a second season to repair her tainted image. However, things have been going Camille’s way in the past few weeks as other cast members have taken some heat away from her plus she has received two major entertainment gigs, including a guest spot on a CBS sitcom and her upcoming Oscars red carpet hosting gig for the CNN network.

So why ruin a good thing by coming back to the show and showing your true colors again? It seems Camille is wanting to play it safe by simply walking away from the show with some momentum on her side.

TELL US – IF THIS IS TRUE, IS IT BEST FOR CAMILLE TO LEAVE THE SHOW?

Ali Fedotowsky graces this week’s cover of InTouch magazine with the headline, ‘Bachelorette Lies & Betrayal.’ Please note that this story contains some spoilers about the show, so please do not read any further if you do not want to know any spoilers.

The magazine touches on the men that will end up betraying Ali this season on The Bachelorette, case in point Justin Rego, who had not one, but two girlfriends while on the show. The not so big shocker comes when the mag claims the show’s producers might have knowingly set up Ali with unsuitable guys, simply to create drama for the show.

Ali’s mom, Beth Johnson, tells the mag that when it comes to falling in love, Ali has never had a specific physical type. “It doesn’t matter” to Ali what her dates look like. In fact, “Ali has dated guys who are unattractive in other people’s eyes. It is who they are inside that matters!”

Frank kissing girlfriend Nicole Caruso

And it seems the show’s producers decided to take advantage of Ali’s “open — and somewhat needy — nature” by steering her into the arms of more than one unsuitable guy. While it’s been widely reported that wrestler Justin will be sent home for two timing Ali, In Touch also reveals that nice guy manager Frank Neuschafer also has a major secret of his own.

“Frank was the early favorite because he had the first date of the season with Ali, but by the end of the show, women are going to hate him,” Bachelorette insider “Reality” Steve Carbone tells In Touch. According to Steve, Frank has a girlfriend back in Chicago whom he’s “still in love with.” And even though the producers were aware of this, they never warned Ali, 25, thus leaving her heartbroken and humiliated when she found out.

“Ali was left in the dark,” says Steve, who reveals that she went so far as to take Frank to Tahiti as one of her final three — only to have him tell her, in the midst of a super-romantic date, that his heart belongs to Nicole back home. “There was no rose ceremony — he just left,” Steve shares, adding that it was devastating for Ali.

There are however conflicting reports about Frank and this GF. While a previous report claims Frank and Nicole Caruso, 23, were broken up before he went on the show, Star magazine claims Frank was still with Nicole before leaving to do the show. The mag claims he only went on the Bachelorette to try to further his career.

“Frank wants a screenwriting career, and he assured her that he was only going on The Bachelorette for the show business exposure,” a friend of Nicole tells Star. “This whole business about Frank wistfully longing for a former girlfriend seems like a sham. He and Nicole were rock-solid when he left for the show, and I believe they still are. He never had any interest in Ali.”
