Kate Gosselin has remained silent since her hit TLC show – Jon & Kate Plus 8ended it’s 2 year run weeks ago. The mother of eight is now breaking her silence in a new interview with Barbara Waters.
According to Kate, the kids aren’t doing so well without the cameras around. “They cried in the van on the way home from school the other day. I finally admitted to them, they kept asking, ‘Where’s the camera crew? Where’s the camera crew? We miss them.’ And I said, ‘Our show is over.’ …Eight sobbing kids driving home from school,” Kate, 34, says on Barbara Walters’ The 10 Most Fascinating People of 2009, scheduled to air Wednesday on ABC.
TLC had planned to continue filming the show without Kate’s estranged husband, Jon Gosselin, back in September. A day after TLC made their announcement, Jon coincidentally revealed he had an “epiphany” and claimed the show was exploiting his children. He refused to allow TLC to continue filming them.
Kate however strongly disagrees with Jon, and tells Barbara that Jon ended the show “because he could.” “Unless you live in my house and, and see how everything that we have done with the show has been such a great experience, you can’t speak,” says Kate.
Kate also reveals she will be back on TV, as she is slated to do a new talk show next spring.
The new season of Keeping Up With The Kardashians is set to premier this Sunday on the E! network, and if the video preview below is any indication of what is to come, we can be assured it will be a drama filled season!
In the sneak peek of the fourth season premiere of the hit show, we can see Khloe Kardashian angrily confronting Scott Disick, the boyfriend and father of Kourtney Kardashian’s baby (due this month).
The argument begins when Khloe accuses Scott of purposely getting her sister pregnant so she wouldn’t leave him. Kourtney and Scott reportedly broke up in January after she accused him of cheating but got back together after she learned she was expecting.
“You thought she was going to leave you, so that’s why you knocked her up,” Khloe screams at Scott. “You wanted to just keep her for 18 years and not let anyone else have her,” continues Khloe. To which Scott shoots back, “18 years? I want her for eternity.” Khloe then slaps Scott across the face.
All interesting, wonder how Khloe would feel if Kourtney ever decided to slap her husband, Lamar Odom, across his face. The new season will focus on the changes in the lives of the sisters. Khloe’s new marriage, Kourntey’s pregnancy, and Kim dealing with her break up from NFL player, Reggie Bush. The two reportedly got back together back in September.
The fourth season will premier Sunday, Dec. 13 at 10/9c, on E! The video sneak peak is below –

Just in case you haven’t had enough of reality shows, VH1 is working on yet another one that will feature the wives and exes of basketball players. “Basketball Wives” will follow and highlight the glamorous lives of the loves and ex-loves of basketball players such as Shaquille O’Neal, Eric Williams, Antoine Walker, Jermaine O’Neal and Udonis Haslem. The 30 min docu-series is set to premiere on March 15, next year.
This is interesting since Shaunie (Shaq’s wife) and executive producer of “Basketball Wives” recently filed for legal separation with intent to divorce on Monday in LA, citing irreconcilable differences.
Below are excerpts from the press release for Basketball Wives:
VH1 has teamed up with the wives and girlfriends of some of the NBA’s most elite players to give the viewers a behind-the-scenes look at the glamorous life of a professional basketball player’s wife in VH1’s original series, Basketball Wives. Production is set to begin on the series in December 2009. The eight-episode 30-minute series is set to premiere on March 15, 2010.
This series is about the insider life of the wives, girlfriends and a few ex-wives of some of the biggest ballers in the game. These ladies live the life. They drive the best cars, live in the biggest mansions, wear designer clothes and jewelry and only travel first class. But living the high life is not all glamour. In order to protect it, they have to deal with the jealousies and dramas of living in — and staying in — the inner circle. They must also keep the groupies at bay while their husbands and boyfriends are traveling on the road for over six months of the year playing ball all-the-while wondering if their spouses are being faithful to them.
The cast is filled with the wives and ex-wives of superstars including Jennifer Williams (wife of Eric Williams), Evelyn Lozada (ex-fiancé of Antoine Walker), Mesha O’Neal (wife of Jermaine O’Neal), Royce Reed, Faith Rain (Udonis Haslem’s girlfriend) and Shaunie O’Neal (wife of Shaquille O’Neal) who will also serve as executive producer on the series.
The fifteenth season of the Amazing Race finale aired last night with dating couple Meghan Rickey and Cheyne Whitney emerging as the $1,000,000 winners.
Meghan, a 23-year-old account executive from San Diego, CA, and boyfriend Cheyne, a 23-year-old student also from San Diego, beat two other couples to the finish line by being quickest to count out $1 million worth of chips at a Las Vegas casino. Bickering brothers, Dan and Sam McMillen, who recently revealed to each other that they’re gay, came in second place. Finishing in third place were Ericka Dunlap, former Miss America 2004, and her husband, Brian Kleinschmidt.
“The whole experience in itself was life-changing, and the money is not even as important as what we got to do together. It was the perfect race. It could not have been any better,” said Cheyne.
“This is absolutely a dream come true,” Meghan said of her win.
The new and upcoming season of the Amazing Race started filming last week, and as we reported earlier, Big Brother’s Jeff Schroeder and Jordan Lloyd will be participating.
Great news for The Hills and The City fans as MTV has now renewed The Hills for season six and The City for season three.
According to Entertainment Weekly, the new seasons of both shows will air sometime in 2010. Production on The City’s 3rd season will begin this week while The Hills’ 6th season will go into production in early January.
The finales of both shows aired this week, and EW was able to chat The series’ respective stars, Kristin Cavallari and Whitney Port, about their decisions to continue with the shows. “I’ve had the best time—I really have,” says Kristin . “I feel like I have the best job! Why not?!” Kristin also says she’s no longer worried about being pegged as a reality TV star. “It’s like I’m in it now,” she admits. “I might as well keep going!”
The upcoming season of The City will focus much more on Whitney’s attempt to succeed with her own fashion line. “That’s my reality,” says Whitney. “It’s where this collection is going to be sold, who we’re going to put it on, what magazines it’s going to be on.” We’ll also get a peak into Port’s social life and friendships. “Just Roxy and I exploring the city together a little bit more and learning who we are.”
Audrina Patridge will not be returning to the Hills’ new season as she will now begin filming her own upcoming solo reality show for MTV.
New details continue to emerge in the Tiger Woods cheating scandal. Woods himself released a statement yesterday admitting to his sins and several transgressions, while apologizing to his wife and family.
The main girl at the center of the scandal is Jaimee Grubbs, who appeared on the reality show – Tool Academy earlier this year. Jaimee sold her story to US Weekly magazine for the amount of $150,000. As part of her story, Jaimee supplied the magazine with voicemails, photos and over 300 text messages. Some of the text messages sent to Jaimee by Tiger are below –
Sent September 27, 2009 –
“I will wear you out soon. You just need some attention from me.”
“Do you have a boyriend? Quietly and secretly, we will always be together. When was the last time you got laid?”
“I will be on the west coast the next 2 weeks. San fran in a tournament, then Orange county. So let’s hook up in the OC.”
A screen shot of more of the text messages is below. The 24 year old waitress revealed more details in an interview with the Sun magazine. “I loved how we got along. But I knew, in the back of my mind, there could never be just us. There would always be the wife, or somebody else.”
According to Jaimee, she met Woods at Las Vegas club Light in April 2007, and while she claims they ended up in the same MGM hotel suite, she added they slept in separate rooms. “The next day, he ordered me lunch in the room. He changed the TV to golf, and I was like, ‘I don’t want to watch golf. It’s boring.’ Then I asked him to get me a pillow. He looked at his friends and went, ‘Is this girl serious?’ At this point, he knew I didn’t care who he was,” she told The Sun before recounting their first kiss.
Things continue to get worse for Tiger as Rachel Uchitel, the first woman linked to Tiger will now be holding a press conference this afternoon with her lawyer Gloria Allred. According to TMZ, Rachel will be admitting that she did indeed have an affair with Tiger. She had previously denied any wrong doing.
A new report by the Chicago Suntimes gives some insight into the current state of Tiger’s marriage with his wife Elin Nordegren. According to the article, Elin is reportedly being paid a hefty seven-figure amount — immediately transfered into an account she alone controls — to stay with her husband.
On top of that, Elin is also getting her prenup re-written, making the incentives for her to remain Mrs. Tiger Woods more enticing. The couple — who have daughter Sam, 2, and son Charlie, 9 months — have been married five years, and according to their current agreement, they need to remain married for 10 years in order for Nordegren to collect a divorce settlement of $20 million. The Suntimes report states the $20 million amount will be increased substantially.
The report also states Elin and Tiger are in an “intense marriage counseling,” at their home — with a counselor who has been conducting sessions several times daily.
Money seems to be the recurring theme in all these stories. Jaimee received $150,000 to tell the world she’s a whore, and Tiger’s wife is now allegedly receiving millions and millions of dollars to stick by the side of her cheating scum husband. Good luck to all parties involved, they will be needing it.
An oh yeah, Jaimee hit up a famous LA spot last night and was all smiles for the paparazzi. More photos of Jaimee below —
Yes, they may flip tables and call each other crack whores, but one thing they would never do is crash a White House party. “It’s a little crazy,” Teresa Giudicetold Us Weekly at the My Hero Gala in NYC Tuesday. “I wouldn’t go to any place I wasn’t invited to. It’s poor etiquette. It’s not my style.”
“There are plenty of ways to get your 15 minutes,” said Caroline Manzo. “I thought it was irresponsible — very irresponsible. We are at a time of war and what message does that send to those who want to do us harm?”
Dina Manzo, who is rumored to not be returning for a 2nd season, also chimed in. “I don’t care if it’s the White House or your next door neighbor and you’re not invited, you don’t show up,” she said. “It’s really not the right thing to do.”
