Good news and bad news for Teen Mom star Amber Portwood as the Indiana Child Protective Services has now closed its investigation against her.

The bad news? Her baby daddy Gary Shirley was awarded primary physical custody of their 3-year-old daughter Leah. “Today amongst all days is the single greatest day for the rest of my life:)…My daughter officially mine. More than before. Love you so much @leah_leann so were hitting up some Disney in Florida to celebrate. :)” tweeted the classy Gary yesterday. And just in case you forgot, yes, Gary did open up a Twitter account for his 3-year-old.

Gary’s lawyer Jeff Lockwood also confirmed the news to Hollybaby. “Today the Department of Child Services dismissed their case against both parents,” Jeff stated Wednesday. “Now that DCS is out of way, regular court order comes into play.”

AMBER PORTWOOD REVEALS SHE HAS EXTREME BIPOLAR

So what does this mean for Amber, 21? Jeff explains, “Gary is the primary custodian which means he has custody of Leah and Amber has visitation rights.”

Jeff adds that Leah will be with Amber every other weekend, Friday through Sunday, while alternating holidays and time in the summer with Gary.

While Amber admits Gary now has primary physical custody, she gives an interesting explanation to E! Online. “Gary and I have joint custody and Leah only lives with him because they [CPS] felt she wasn’t safe with me when my house got vandalized,” states Amber.

Amber also adds that Gary and her are doing much better as co-parents to Leah. “We’re getting along fine, not fighting,” she said. “Everything is finally good.”

The investigation by Child Services began last year after MTV aired footage of Amber physically attacking Gary in the presence of their daughter, Leah. In fact, Amber was arrested for domestic violence and ultimately received a suspended two-year sentence, plus two years of probation. Amber has had an especially hard time in the past year which included a suicide attempt back in June followed by a 2-month stint in rehab.

TELL US – IS LEAH BETTER OF WITH GARY? OR SHOULD AMBER HAVE REGAINED CUSTODY?


Last night’s Survivor found the original Upolu alliance of five going head-to-head. Brandon makes a selfless and bold move, while Albert scurries to get ahead. His tribe mates are quickly turning against him. Plus, there is a lot — A LOT — of praying.

Once the final five head back to the beach, Brandon Hantz Crazy Pants leads the group — in what else? — a prayer. Benjamin Coach is excited to see the alliances within the alliance come into play. Albert is starting to worry that Sophie is proving to be a major competitor. His move is to cozy up to Rancher Rick, who he deems least dangerous. Albert considers himself a rogue beside Coach’s cult leader status.

From her short foray into reality television on Real Housewives of Miami, everyone remembers two things about Larsa Pippen: 1) her snooty attitude and 2) that her husband, Scottie Pippen was supposedly broke!

After Scottie was listed in a CNBC.com article titled “15 Athletes Gone Bankrupt,” it seems several other media sources started repeating that the retired NBA star was broke! Dismissing the story wasn’t helped by the rumor that the Pippens were unable to sell their Miami home, featured on RHOM.

Well, Scottie is taking issues with media outlets reporting the so-called false claims of his bankruptcy and insisting he is actually worth no less than $40 million! The Chicago Sun Times is reporting that on Tuesday, Scottie filed a $9 million dollar federal lawsuit against several online media outlets, including: CNBC.com, CBSports, Arizona State University, Comcast Corp. and General Electric Co.

According to TMZ, Scottie’s suit claims he “never filed for bankruptcy and indeed has a substantial net worth, which has not been less than approximately $40 million in the last 10 years.” He is furious over shoddy reporting suggesting otherwise! “It is a most foul libel indeed to be falsely accused of being bankrupt,” the suit states.

Scottie believes these false stories were damaging to his reputation and he is seeking retribution for “negligence, false light and defamation.” Scottie’s suit alleges that each media outlet that “besmirched” his name should pay him $1 million in damages. Wow — that should pay for a lot of nannies!

IS SCOTTIE RIGHT TO FILE A LAWSUIT AGAINST MEDIA OUTLETS FOR FALSE REPORTING? DO YOU THINK HE IS BROKE?


After sharing her struggles with infertility, E! network’s entertainment news anchor and host of Fashion Police Giuliana Rancic shocked fans with the announcement that she was diagnosed with breast cancer, discovered as she and Apprentice winning husband Bill Rancic were prepping for another round of in vitro fertilization. The couple, who also star in Style Network’s reality show Giuliana and Bill, were upfront with her diagnosis and recently revealed that after a double lumpectomy Giuliana would need additional surgery. After the original procedure failed to eradicate all of the cancer, the entertainment personality underwent a double mastectomy.

EOnline.com is happily reporting that Giuliana’s surgery was a success and the star “came through in great spirits.” Her husband Bill tells the network, “G is doing really well. Her surgery lasted about four hours and the doctors were very pleased with the result.” He continues, “She had a little bit of pain through the night but is feeling much better this morning and was cracking jokes.” I am so thrilled to hear that she is in a positive place after such a tumultuous ordeal.

Giuliana herself had a statement to share after her surgery, saying, “I want to thank all the viewers and fans for their support and prayers. The tweets and notes have not gone unnoticed. I am very grateful.” Without question, her well wishes will certainly continue.

Before her mastectomy, Giuliana opened up to Hollywoodlife.com about the decision to go public with her story. While the 37-year-old personality has kept her fans in the loop with the prognosis every step of the way, she reveals that sharing her story wasn’t always her intent.

Giuliana admitted, “There was definitely a period of time when we thought, we’ll probably keep this a secret… forever. And then, I don’t know, it’s just not my personality. I kept thinking to myself, ‘Gosh, I wish I could tell my friends what I’m going through or girls at work, just because I wanted to tell them to get checked and tell them, ‘Hey guys, if this can happen to me, then it could happen to you!’”

“I knew I would never be able to keep this a secret because I was armed with this incredible knowledge that if you can just find breast cancer early enough you can be totally fine and healed,” the host shares. Having made the public part of her recovery, she is probably helping more people than she could even imagine. Say what you will about her shows or her lifestyle, but bringing awareness to this disease is the most important thing that she — or anyone else with such a large public platform — could do. Kudos to you, Giuliana!

Now that Giuliana is recovering from surgery, she will surely focus on her next gig — hosting the New Year’s Eve NIVEA Kiss Platform in New York City with Bill at her side. I’m sure some will say it’s too early for her to step back into the limelight, but I believe that she’s proving she won’t let cancer stop her from living her life.

Sadly, the majority of readers have probably seen what this horrendous disease has done to the lives of family and friends. Personally, I have watched several strong and influential women in my life overcome breast cancer, becoming role models to everyone who knows them. Unfortunately, I also witnessed my mother succumb to this disease when I was twenty-two years old, and seeing the influence and awareness that people like the Rancics can bring to such a worthy cause is heartwarming to me.

Here at RT, our prayers and well wishes go out to Giuliana and Bill, as well as to all those who have been affected by breast cancer.

On last night’s episode of Real Housewives of Atlanta, Bob took Sheree to court, Phaedra got played by Bob, Kandi talked her new self-pleasure line and Kim struggled for her daughter to accept KJ.

Things begin with Phaedra and Sheree meeting to discuss Bob’s modification of child support. Phaedra explains it will be a very engrossing process with a lot of sorting through everyone’s business. Sheree is emotional because it is dealing with something very dear to her heart: her money, according to Phaedra. Sheree is still unwilling to put Dead Beat Head Butt Bob in jail for back child support, but Phaedra promises to be the diligent legal eagle and get her the justice she deserves!

On last night’s Teen Mom 2, Chelsea Houska decides to give jackleg Adam Lind YET ANOTHER chance, Kailyn Lowry finds herself worrying about making ends meet (and she’s the only responsible one!) and Jenelle Evans ends up living in her car with deadbeat boyfriend Kieffer Delp. Don’t these girls make bank for doing this show? Or at least enough to pay rent? It’s depressing to watch, much less recap, but I Just. Can’t. Turn. Away.

Kailyn is feeling the strain of living with her mother and her boyfriend. She shares a note with her friend that she received from said boyfriend after coming in late from work (yes, work… does he realize it could be MUCH worse?). Kailyn is extremely hurt that her mom is turning the other cheek while she works hard and attends school full time. Kailyn is ready to get her own place and cut all ties. I will say her mother has always rubbed me the wrong way.

Casting drama is nothing new for Real Housewives of New York. In the latest upset to plague the show, a potential new Housewife was given the axe after her husband was charged with investment fraud. But why? It makes for such interesting television!

The NY Post is reporting that Annie Churchill was on a short list of contenders to be added to the newly revamped Season 5 cast when producers discovered a dirty little secret; her husband Andrew Albert was arrested and charged with grand larceny and fraud after several investors accused him of using over $600,000 collected for a proposed online-shopping website for personal expenses. Wow! Here comes the NY version of Taylor Armstrong!

According to sources the network made the decision to avoid mingling with anyone else facing criminal charges given Russell Armstrong‘s recent suicide, thus Annie was given the boot. Michael Farkas a lawyer for Andrew confirmed that Bravo decided not cast Annie in the wake of what happened adding that his client is completely innocent and currently working to fight the charges, which he claims are “baseless.” Although Annie is not included in the cast full-time, her rep is claiming she may still make a small appearance in the upcoming season.

Bravo is not commenting on the latest gossip. “We haven’t finished shooting this season yet, so we haven’t made any kind of casting decisions for season five yet,” a rep for the network stated.

In other RHONY news one of the new Housewives has a famous relative! Fran Dresher is known for her role as the nanny turned housewife on The Nanny, but now she’s also gaining some attention for being the cousin of new RHONY Housewife Aviva Drescher. Speaking to the Huffington Post‘s Rob Shuter, Fran talks about how reality TV isn’t really her cup of tea, but she isn’t going to pull a Real Housewives of New Jersey and start some televised family drama over the ordeal.

“I would never [do a reality show],” Fran told Rob, adding that she’s been approached several times to become the subject of one! “During the times that reality was so big, sitcoms were so not en vogue. ‘We should do a reality show with you,’ [I was told] and I said no,” Fran relays. “First of all, I don’t like them. It appeals to the lowest common denominator. It’s not really reality, because they have to have conflict in them to have people sitting there.” Wow! She really, really doesn’t like them.

“I’ve never flipped a table in my life,” Fran added with a laugh. “I’m scared to admit, but one of my cousins is one of the new ‘Housewives’ of New York and yesterday we had my book party at Dylan’s Candy Bar. … Well, I said hello and we talked a little bit.”

Finally some former NY Housewives news, Kelly Bensimon is contradicting herself again. In a new interview with Zap2it, Kelly claims she was never really friends with ex-cast mates LuAnn de Lesseps and Jill Zarin!

When asked if she keeps in touch with any of her former co-stars, the ditzy model replied: “Luann I speak to and Jill I talk to. We were cast mates, not really friends.”

Interesting, considering that in a recent interview with AVENUE Magazine, Kelly revealed that one of the positives of participating in the show was making a “life-long” friend in Jill. Jill agreed, telling the mag, “Our friendship is real. She’s the most loyal, good friend you could ever count on. She’s such a hard worker.” The two have also been photographed together post-Housewives. So which is it, Kelly? Friends or not?

THOUGHTS ON THE LATEST CASTING DRAMA? WAS BRAVO RIGHT TO AXE ANNIE CHURCHILL? DO YOU WANT TO SEE FRAN DRESCHER MAKE AN APPEARANCE ON HOUSEWIVES? DO YOU BELIEVE KELLY AND JILL ARE FRIENDS OR NOT?
