Gosselin

The final episode of TLC’s Jon and Kate Plus 8 will air tonight. During the final episode, fans can expect to see the estranged parents of eight go on outings with the kids separately. Jon Gosselin takes the kids to a fire station near the family home in Wernersville, Pa., while Kate Gosselin takes them to a local dairy farm.

Jon and Kate both reflect separately on the events of the past few months and what the future holds for them. The last few months have been a roller coaster ride for the separated couple. A couple months ago, TLC announced that the show will be renamed Kate Plus 8. This never happened as Jon refused to let his kids appear on the show saying it was detrimental to the kids.

Kate Plus 8 is not in production,” TLC spokeswoman Laurie Goldberg said Thursday. “We are focusing on the launch of Kate’s new series in early spring.” No other details were available.

In other news, RadarOnline is reporting that Jon & Kate’s divorce should be finalized before the year is over. The main issue holding up the divorce was the division of the couple’s assets. A divorce arbitrator will divide their assets by December 21.

The couple met face to face on Saturday for a divorce arbitration meeting, during which Jon decided to bring flowers for Kate.  Jon, the classy guy that he is, made certain to tell the press he brought the flowers for Kate as a peace offering. Kate however did not accept the roses and a source familiar with the situation told Radar, “She was disgusted by Jon’s actions. She sees right through him.” Can’t say we blame her.

Tell Us: Will Jon & Kate finally go away now that the show ends?

Real Housewives of New York City Star, Bethenny Frankel, is making a statement by posing nude in the latest PETA “I’d rather go naked than wear fur” ad campaign. TV Guide Magazine was present at the racy photo shoot on a Manhattan rooftop.

In the new interview with TV Guide Magazine, Bethenny speaks out about posing nude for PETA, her new bestseller, love life and dishes out on the Real housewives series.

Below are excerpts from this interview-

You’re brave! How does it feel to take it all off?
Oh, I’m really excited. I think it’s a really amazing cause. It’s very simple to say to people, “You get to make a choice, and you can choose not to wear fur. It’s such a frivolous thing to do, and I used to do it. I wasn’t a crazy fur-wearer, certainly—I couldn’t afford it and I’m not that outlandish—but it really is so superfluous.

How’d you get involved with PETA, anyway?
I’m a huge animal lover, so it’s been a very organic process. I’m not on the top of any soapbox, but I think this is just a really interesting thing, and they came to me. They [noticed] that I’d gotten a lot of exposure lately—pun intended, because that’s nothing like the exposure I’m getting today. I guess they trust that I’ll be able to carry the message.

Do you have any pets of your own?
I have a dog, Cookie—she’s a lhasa mix, a mutt.

Your book, Naturally Thin, has been a big hit. Does that mean that people are constantly checking out what you’re eating?
Yes! I had a bowl of pasta, and it showed up on blogs. But my entire mantra is that there’s no food that’s forbidden; taste everything, eat nothing. And people have been watching me eat a lot more lately because for 52 weeks, I’m doing a food crawl for my Twitter followers. Last Monday was the lobster roll crawl, this week it’s a gelato crawl, next week it’s a French fry call. I’m going to be at McDonald’s!

What’s your take on the current season of your sister show, the Real Housewives of Atlanta?
I call it the Real Housewivez [sic] of the Hood. They’re all very much into, “Are you a gangster, are you a hood”…asking [questions] about whether you came from money or didn’t come from money. I don’t think anybody’s confusing them from being in the Great Gatsby…and who cares anyway? I think on the first season, they all wanted to prove how wealthy they are, and how they have a staff and stylists. There are two events a year in Atlanta—I don’t know why they need stylists, assistants and hair people. And this season, I think they’re trying to go backwards a little and be like, “This is where I came from.” They’re having a financial identity crisis.

Is that your favorite of the other Housewives franchises?
Atlanta’s my favorite…my show included.

Despite cheating allegations and rumors of a break up, newly engaged Bachelorette couple Jillian Harris and Ed Swiderski are still together.

An insider told In Touch Weekly that both Ed and Jillian plan to stay engaged and work through the problems, specifically the cheating allegations. “When Jillian accepted Ed’s proposal, she was starting to fall in love,” the magazine reports.

The insider continues, saying it wasn’t until after accepting the $60,000 ring that Jillian started to hear rumors that Ed might have kept company with a past girlfriend, among others.

A lot of people are wondering why Jillian has agreed to stay with Ed despite all the evidence pointing to him cheating. Former Bachelorette contestant, DeAnna Pappas believes money might be a factor.

“Hours after my finale, I was bombarded with offers for endorsements, special appearances and more,” Pappas told In Touch. “But the catch was they wanted both me and my fiancé (Jesse Csincsak).”

Four months following the final rose ceremony and proposal, DeAnna and Jesse broke up. Both were offered $10,000 to appear at a nightclub and $5,000 to appear at a mall.

“If Jesse and I stayed together, we could have easily cashed in,” Pappas said. “But for me, it felt like selling out.”

UPDATE – Edited to add that ABC paid the first Bachelorette, Trista Rehn and husband Ryan Sutter, $1 million to televise their wedding back in 2003.  So Jillian and Ed making it down the aisle could mean big bucks for the couple.

Megan Wants A Millionaire Ryan Jenkins

VH1 is known for bringing us strippers, “models,” and sometimes pornstars when it comes to their dating shows, but could murderer now be included in that category?

TMZ is reporting Ryan Alexander Jenkins, one of the contestants of Megan Wants A Millionaire, is wanted as a person of interest in the murder of playboy representative, Jasmine Fiore. Jasmine was found dead in a trash bin in Buena Park last Saturday morning. She was first reported missing by Ryan on Saturday night.

The story takes an interesting twist as Ryan and Jasmine were actually married. According to TMZ, Ryan married Jasmine just 2 days after meeting her at a Las Vegas strip club earlier this year. It is reported that Ryan married Jasmine shortly after being eliminated from Megan Wants A Millionaire — he was one of the finalists.

In an interview with TMZ, Megan Hauserman said Jenkins was smart, nice and she is shocked by the turn of events.

As of now, Ryan remains at large. His lawyer contacted TMZ, saying Ryan plans on meeting with authorities in the near future.
