If you’re anything like me, Real Housewives of Atlanta is a Sunday staple… although not tonight. Apparently, there is some football game on which has sidelined most of my programs (gracious, I sound like my grandmother talking about her soap “stories”).

The news of the moment with the Southern brethren of Bravo’s train wreck franchise is the recent screaming match between Sheree Whitfield and Marlo Hampton while the ladies were supposed to be enjoying an amazing vacation.

As you recall, Marlo didn’t take too kindly to not being invited to a dinner organized by Sheree in the southern hemisphere… even though the two ladies are as far from being actual friends as myself and Kim Kardashian. Although, I have heard through the grapevine that Kimmie is upset with me for not inviting her to my Super Bowl party, which will consist of me watching the Puppy Bowl with my dog while gorging on dip. #nflwhat?

Sheree took to her twitter on January 29 to explain–in small character amounts, of course–her take on the South African blow-up with co-star (?) Marlo. Sheree, like many of us, is confused as to why Marlo would want to tag along to the dinner Sheree and a friend planned in South Africa. As the two barely speak, it is weird that Marlo would get so heated to find out she wouldn’t be joining people she despises at an across-the-globe soiree. A snapshot of Sheree’s tweets is below:

Sheree also stated, perhaps rightfully so, that Marlo’s overreaction was an attempt to secure a spot on the show! Sheree tweeted: “I know, I hate I even went there! Thats what I was speaking of when I said ‘I see what ur doing’ Trying 2 secure a spot on the show.”

And speaking of Marlo, lots of information has been circulating as to just who exactly her rich, older “Sugar Daddy” is. Please say it isn’t so, Mr. Turner!

The website wetpaint.com is reporting that the gossip regarding CNN magnate Ted Turner bank-rolling the very scary Marlo (kidding, love you, ‘Lo!) is just that… gossip. I knew he didn’t seem like that kind of dude. He’s too busy making sure we see the news, as well as classic movies. Thanks for that, Ted.

It’s not strange that people up on Atlanta dirt would speculate about Marlo’s alleged “Big Poppa” after Sheree yelled about her nemesis’s 80-year-old, white sugar daddy during the pair’s infamous vacay showdown. However, what is odd is that Marlo didn’t bat an eyelash at Sheree’s accusation. There was definitely no denial coming from Ms. Hampton.

Since that fateful episode, many media outlets have suggested–or downright claimed–that billionaire Ted Turner was the cash behind Marlo’s lavish lifestyle. However, an insider tells the site: “Absolutely NOT! She wishes he were.” So sorry for wondering Ted! The Ted rumors were also fueled by a recent RHOA episode, in which Marlo attended an event put together by Ted’s daughter and reported current girlfriend.

The same source is adamant that this rumor is another one of Marlo’s ploys, saying: “[This is] just her trying to divert the talk from her criminal past AND the fact she was caught using the word f***ot!”

So, with the media mogul officially out of the running as Marlo’s secret older gentleman – who is paying for all of her designer duds? She can’t be returning it all! Another report came out this week alleging that Marlo’s lavish lifestyle was being funded by the money she got from a currently imprisoned ex who happened to be a big time drug dealer.

SHOULD SHEREE HAVE INVITED MARLO TO HER DINNER PARTY IN SOUTH AFRICA? WHO DO YOU THINK IS MARLO’S SUGAR DADDY? ARE YOU TOTALLY CONVINCED IT ISN’T TED TURNER?


Last night’s episode of the Real Trainwrecks of Beverly Hills contained a whole lotta drama that belongs on a different show. Lisa opened SUR, Kim had some sort of ongoing cray-cray with Ken, whom she is now leaving, and Taylor begged the ladies to love her in what I’m sure she believes is a good rendition of Sally Fields’ ‘You really like me…’ Oscar speech.

Things start off with Kyle getting ready for the SUR launch party with her eldest daughter Farrah. After chasing Portia around, Kyle lets a bored seeming Farrah know that Taylor has left Russell and that she and Kim are still fighting. Farrah wonders why Kyle hasn’t figured out how to manage her relationship with Kim already. Why is Farrah more mature than Kyle?

Meanwhile Lisa is putting the finishing touches on SUR and running around in a panic micromanaging every detail before ditching Ken to finish the job and blowing out the door without so much as a kiss. Poor Ken will have to wait until next year for a cuddle. Lisa needs to accept her life is on camera and not be embarrassed to show affection to her husband.

Last night was the next to the last episode of Love & Hip Hop. I don’t know about you, but I feel as if this season has flown by in a relatively boring string of similar-minded cat fights. Erica Mena and Kimbella Vanderhee are at each others’ throats yet again, Yandy Smith is desperate to find someone who finds her to be a totally innocent party in her smack down with Chrissy Lampkin and unprofessional e-mail to Jim Jones, and Olivia Longett keeps singing away. Emily Bustamante is still pining for Fab and Somaya Reece makes a rare appearance.

Olivia and Emily are discussing the fight between Yandy and Chrissy. Emily has Chrissy’s back while Olivia feels she stuck between two friends. Yandy joins the pair and Emily smugly sizes up Yandy. Yandy hopes that Emily will help show Chrissy her side of things, but no dice. Emily will leave that job for Olivia.

Bethenny Frankel is opening up about her boob job ordeal in a new interview with Life & Style magazine.

In the mag’s latest issue, the Bethenny Ever After star admits she got breast implants but says she had them removed a few years ago. Bethenny states that back in 2005, she was feeling unhappy with her natural 34C. She thought her breasts were way too saggy and approached a plastic surgeon to get a lift.

The plastic surgeon however wouldn’t perform the procedure she wanted. “He told me there would be big lollipop scars if I got a lift,” Bethenny, 40, tells Life & Style. “Being single at the time, I wasn’t comfortable with the idea. He told me he could instead put in a small implant that would give me a lift — not as much as a real lift would but at least a little bit of a lift. So I did it.”

Bethenny says she wasn’t happy with the implants. “I was a D-cup,” Bethenny remembers. “They were still saggy — only now they were bigger! They were saggy and gigantic.”

“I was so uncomfortable. I looked like a stripper,” continues Bethenny. “I don’t think your breasts should be the first thing people notice when you enter a room.”

Bethenny adds that after joining the cast of Bravo’s Real Housewives of New York City in 2008, she was finally able to afford having the implants taken out.

“The minute I had the money, I was like, ‘Let’s do it,’” says Bethenny adding that she quickly booked an appointment with a surgeon, had the implants removed and went back to her normal size.

“Now I feel comfortable,” says Bethenny. “I feel proportional — and I don’t have saggy boobs anymore. It’s the best feeling ever.” Bethenny adds that her hubby Jason Hoppy is happy with her natural size. “He likes me in a bathing suit and in lingerie — and when I’m naked,” smiles Bethenny.

Interesting comments by Bethenny though her recent photos stemming from 2009 to 2011 still show what appears to be breast implants but we’ll let you be the judge of that with more photos below. Our guess is she might have gotten smaller implants as the above photo of Bethenny in a white bikini from 2009 looks like more than just a lift.

If there’s one thing we have all grown accustomed to when it comes to Bravo housewives, it is their penchant fondness for the good life and excessive, borderline obnoxious, bragging of their “lavish lifestyles.”

Not exempt are the Real Housewives of New Jersey, and thanks to the good folks at Jezebel.com, the financial history of each of the ladies has now been uncovered.

For example, did you know three civil suits were filed against Danielle Staub and her ex-husband Thomas Staub, including federal and state tax liens? Yeah, neither did we. This might explain why a 47-year-old mother of two would make a sex tape and sell it to the highest bidder. All allegedly of course.

Below is more information about each housewife’s financial history –

Caroline Manzo – Caroline’s husband Albert Manzo has been involved in over 30 judgments and liens (one brought on by a family member) since the early ’90s up until two years ago . Throughout the ’90s and into 2000, there were several judgments against Caroline for nonpayment of hospital and doctors’ bills, as well another judgment involving “Church Chronicle Publishing.”

  • A state tax lien for $10,546.17 was filed against Albert Manzo in 2000.
  • A judgment in favor of the Federal Mortgage Association for $148,000 also against Al.
  • A few judgments in favor of the First Bank of USA and North Jersey Federal Credit for a combined total of over $10,000.


Dina Manzo – Jezebel reports out of all the housewives, Dina is the only one who has a clean slate when it comes to her financial history. Her husband, Tommy Manzo, is however a different story. Dina married Tommy (the brother of Caroline’s husband) in 2006 in a lavish wedding that reportedly cost $1.5 million. The wedding was featured on VH1’s My Big Fat Fabulous Wedding. You can watch that here.

  • Tommy was sued by American Express for $12,599 in 2007
  • He was also sued by the Bank of America for an undisclosed amount.


Jacqueline Laurita – Similar to Dina, Jacqueline also seems to have a clean financial slate. However as we reported this week, the company of Jacqueline’s husband, Chris Laurita, filed for bankrupty last year. The company, Signature Apparel Group LLC, was behind the Rocawear and Eve’s Fetish clothing brands. The financial issues found on the Lauritas were for the years 1988 and 1990.

  • United Jersey bank successfully won a judgment against Chris for over $18,000 in 1988.
  • American Express also successfully won a judgment against Chris for almost $3000 in 1990.

DWTS Jake and Vienna

Bachelor alum Jake Pavelka found himself the latest ‘star’ to be booted from Dancing With The Stars.

The 32 year-old Texan tried to choke back his tears as he gave his farewell speech.  “I can’t put into words how much I’ve enjoyed this,” he said through tears. “I didn’t imagine how hard it would be to say goodbye.”

“I was so honored to be here. I enjoyed every second of this,” continued Jake. “Thank you for keeping me here for six episodes. I can’t even put it into words how much I enjoyed this.”  And despite the reports of a rift between Jake and his partner, Chelsie Hightower, he thanked her last night and called her “one of my best friends,” in what he believed to be “the best season of Dancing With the Stars I’ve ever seen.”

It however seems the best part of the show came once the cameras were turned off. According to UsWeekly, Jake and his fiance Vienna Girardi, who was shown last night looking rather sad at her man’s elimination, reportedly really took things to heart.

The two reportedly looked absolutely miserable, depressed and inconsolable as they hugged and chatted when the cameras went off. Deena Katz, the head producer/casting director of the show, had to walk over to comfort Jake. Jake then took to his twitter after the show and posted the following, “Well guys, I did everything I could, layed it all out there on the dance floor. I’m pretty bumbed… 🙁

And despite calling his partner Chelsie his best friend last night, the two immediately parted ways after cameras stopped rolling.  Chelsie however reportedly got a “long” hug and “sweet kiss on the cheek” from her new beau Mark Ballas.

In other DWTS news, Kate Gosselin’s departure didn’t put a damper on the ratings as expected. Monday’s night’s show still averaged over 20 million viewers, meaning Kate’s reported impact in the ratings boost this season was well overestimated.

Six couples remain on the show with just four weeks of dancing left.  The season finale is set to air May 25th.

The supertrailer for season two of Sober House is here! VH1 has released the upcoming preview, and judging from the video above, it is bound to be a dramatic season.

The second season features Tom Sizemore, Heidi Fleiss, Dennis Rodman, Jennifer Ketcham, Seth “Shifty” Binzer, Kendra Jade Rossi, Mike Starr and Kari Ann Peniche trying to stay sober.

Sober House with Dr. Drew is set to premiere Thursday, March 11 at 10/9c on VH1.

Kourtney Kardashian Baby Photo of Mason Dash Disick

Just 2 weeks after delivering her baby boy, Keeping Up With the Kardashians star Kourtney Kardashian is sharing exclusive photos of her baby with Life & Style magazine!

Inside the latest issue of the mag, Kourtney describes what its like being a mommy to baby Mason Dash Disick:  “I feel so lucky. He’s such a good baby.”

Kourtney was also asked about her baby’s controversial middle name — Dash (the name of the clothing store of the Kardashian sisters).  She explains, “Dash is not for my clothing store, as some people have suggested online. That would be stupid. Dash is short for Kardashian, and it was my father’s nickname.”

There are also rumors that Kourtney freaked out recently when she found out that Kim Kardashian‘s NFL boyfriend, Reggie Bush, was planning to propose to Kim during the holidays. Apparently Kourtney was none too pleased as she wanted the holidays to be all about she and her new born baby.

According to the National Enquirer, “Reggie doesn’t want to battle Kourtney, so he backed off to keep the peace.”  The story claims Reggie is now planning on proposing to Kim in early 2010.
