Some positive, non-violent reality news to report on today which is always nice! After undergoing a double mastectomy over three weeks ago, Giuliana Rancic is reporting that she’s “doing better than I anticipated in recovery.” In fact, the star of Giuliana and Bill is claiming that her battle with breast cancer has actually improved her quality of life. That’s some attitude — we should all take note!

Not surprisingly, she’s already back to work and back to her life… just a better life, she says. Speaking to PEOPLE.com while at a Television Critics Association press tour luncheon this past weekend, Giuilana revealed, “I never thought my marriage could be stronger, or I could be closer to [my husband Apprentice winner] Bill [Rancic].” The E! host reveals that the frightening ordeal has been a positive life changer “in so many ways.”

Discussing Bill and her religious views, Giuliana shares, “We go to church every Sunday. And we did before, but it never meant as much as it does now.” She continues, “We prayed on our own, but now we prayed together and you’ll never know how much that means until you do it. Bill and I have changed our lives in that one way.”

Giuliana reveals that she hasn’t had a moment’s pause about her recent surgery which removed both of her breasts — nor should she. It greatly improved her future health. She states, “The surgery brought my risks down 95 to 100 percent. If I had a lumpectomy, I would have early estrogen menopause for at least two years, and I want to have children.”

Using the humor she’s known for both on her show and on the red carpet, Giuliana dishes, “I didn’t give two sh––s about my breasts. I didn’t care that at the Golden Globes, I wouldn’t be able to show cleavage.” Her chest size doesn’t define her career.

She recalls, “A lot of people were shocked. They said, ‘Are you sure you want to do this? Think about the life you lead and the fabulous dresses and that’s part of your job. It could put your job in jeopardy.’ And I thought, if I ever have a job that is defined by my breasts and some gorgeous gown then I’m in the wrong business.”

And honestly, who needs cleavage when they have a loving, supportive husband by their side every step of the way through the good, the bad and the ugly. “It breaks my heart that a lot of women don’t have a supportive husband,” Giuliana tells the magazine. She gushes, “Bill’s a saint, and the hottest male nurse ever. He’s very protective and it’s almost as hard for him as it was for me.”

I am so happy to see that Giuliana made the health decision that she felt was best for her, regardless of stigmas, criticism or potential insecurities. I think Bill and her are a wonderful public example for the millions of women and men who face the devastation of breast cancer on a daily basis. Do I think she’s a hero? Yes. But I also think all the other women who have been in her shoes without the recognition are as well. I applaud her for using the platform she’s been blessed with to spread awareness about an all too common epidemic.

CAN YOU BELIEVE GIULIANA’S ALREADY BACK AT WORK AFTER HER SURGERY? WHAT DO YOU THINK OF HER INTERVIEW?


Last night’s episode of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills was fun except for the KimKyle-nanigans – that’s shenanigans by Kim and Kyle, if you can’t decipher the lingo. Kim, in addition to looking a hot mess and appearing hung over the entire trip also had Kyle taking every opportunity to argue with her; those two again managed to be completely inconsiderate to everyone, but luckily it ruined only Kyle’s good time.

Things start out on a high note with Adrienne and Paul hiking and holding hands. Double take! I love Paul in middle-aged tourist gear. All he needs is a fannypack to go with Adrienne’s “Visit The Palms, I need the money!” visor.

Kim finally arrives in Lanai! As for being late, “Oops” is all she has to say for herself. Kim is so excited to finally be there and unluckily gets placed in a room right next to Kyle. A frantic Kyle hears Kim’s voice and ignores Mauricio and margaritas(!) to eavesdrop on Kim. In the talking head, Kim states: “I chose to not *coke sniff* to talk to Kyle.” Nice.

Despite the fact she was let go from Real Housewives of New York City, our little redhead Jill Zarin refuses to go away!

For reasons that are hard to comprehend, she is still being featured in the press and giving interviews holding on to her very last threads of relevance by slamming her former co-workers at every opportunity.

Radar features a piece with several choice quotes from Jill, where she insists that the show is nothing without her: “Now that I’m not there, who is going to hold court this season? None of the new women knew each other before they were cast. I know if I were there, I could make people feel comfortable.”

If by making people feel comfortable, you mean loudly picking fights at every opportunity, then sure, Jill, you could have made rumored new cast members Carole Radziwill,Heather Thomson and Aviva Drescher feel right at home in the Real Housewives family!

Since she apparently ran out of things to say about her feud with former BFF Bethenny Frankel, Jill set her sights on slamming former frenemy Ramona Singer.

“No one cares about Ramona Singer anymore,” Jill rants about her former costar. “I’ve heard the new cast members are not happy with her. Ramona planted that ridiculous story about me borrowing clothes from Saks Fifth Avenue and returning them worn. But I’m having a huge party there in February, so Ramona is the one who looks like the idiot.”

While we are sure *someone* cares about Ramona, there is probably some truth to the statement that Ramona is fighting with the other ladies. Ramona, as we all remember, has had a fight with all of her cast mates at one point or another.

Not one to take anything sitting down (or without a glass of wine), Ramona tells Wetpaint Entertainment that, “Jill is delusional. And needs a reality check — no pun intended.”

Delusional or not, Jill is doing just fine for herself these days, proudly showing off a $19,000 ring once worn by Elizabeth Taylor to the TMZ cameras last week that husband Bawby Zarin gifted her for their 11th wedding anniversary. While Jill may say she’s happy going back to being just another New York wife, we think she misses the cameras much more often than she will ever admit to.

A picture of Jill’s $19K ring is below! The NY Daily News is now reporting that Jill’s pricey purchase has inspired her to start her own jewelry line, which will debut in time for Valentine’s Day. How convenient.

After last week’s romantic (?) proposal, Love & Hip Hop resumed with some slight back story behind Jim Jones’ decision to head to Miami. There is a video montage of the pair from season one intermixed with Jim preparing to pop the question.

As he waxes poetic in the background about what it means to have Chrissy as a lady and confidante, why she is perfect for him, and what all they’ve been through, we watch him shower (he totes has a body under those baggy clothes!), profess his love for Chrissy in the steamy mirror and contemplate choosing the perfect ring. Oh VH1, how cheesy lovely.

After Chrissy says yes, it turns out the entire Miami trip was a set-up by Jim. He has all her friends and family at the restaurant, and apparently Emily, Teairra, and Olivia were in on the plan as well. I clearly didn’t give Jim enough credit. That was a pretty sweet proposal. In her interview, Chrissy cries about how wonderful it feels to be a Jones, compliments crizazy Mama Jones (love!) for raising such a wonderful son and ends with a tearful, “Even if we never get married… I will always have love for Jim in my f*&^ing heart.” And here I was thinking that Jim was the more romantic out of the two. Chrissy is like a female Shakespeare!

Oh goody. The wedding between Evelyn Lozada and Chad Ochocinco is back on! You know, just in case you cared.

Just a week after TMZ broke the news that Evelyn, star of Basketball Wives, had put the wedding on hold over suspicions of Chad cheating, TMZ is now reporting all is well between the couple!

So why did Evelyn have a change of heart? Well, apparently Chad had to do a lot of begging. Sources tell TMZ that Chad broke down last week and apologized. Chad reportedly told Evelyn he would do whatever it took to win her back and even suggested couple’s counseling for the two.

Evelyn is said to have agreed and the couple are now seeking help to work out their trust issues. So wait, does this mean Chad is pretty much acknowledging that he cheated? Because if he didn’t cheat, why would he be groveling and suggesting counseling???

Anyhoo, Evelyn also spoke out through her rep, telling TMZ: “The strain from both our busy schedules started to take a serious toll on our relationship. Yet after spending some much needed quality time together, Chad and I are in a good space.”

Okay then. Meanwhile, Evelyn’s costar Tami Roman posted a topless photo of herself this week on her Facebook page. The reason? It’s an anti-fur ad for PETA even though she’s not officially associated with PETA. Tami wrote: “Even though this ad was not done in affiliation with PETA, I hope to have the opportunity to work with them to further the cause of animal rights in the future.”

The topless photo of Tami is below!

Moving on to Basketball Wives LA star Imani Showalter, who took to her Twitter page days ago to show off her weight loss and bikini body!

The mother of three tweeted bikini photos of her new slimmer body in a sexy leopard print Victoria’s Secret bathing suit! “Ok y’all this is the the winner for my St. Barths trip,” wrote Imani. The bikini photos of Imani are below!

Attention eligible bachelors, Kate Gosselin is still single and available!

Weeks after a report stated the former Kate Plus 8 star had a new beau in her life, Kate is now denying she is seeing anyone.

Talking to OK! magazine, Kate, 36, dismisses the gossip as “fabricated and totally false.” She stressed: “Unless my running shoes, kitchen utensils or wrapping paper are considered ‘dates,’ I have not been on any.” Aww poor Katie! At least she has her bodyguard Steve Neild to err, you know, “protect” her!

The mother of eight is, however, keeping her chin up as she reflects on the year 2011 and reveals her resolutions for the New Year in her latest blog for Couponcabin.com.

“The main thing that the end of a year causes me to do is to reflect on what I’ve learned that year,” wrote Kate. “The year of 2011 for me was a year of gaining complete independence, and learning to look for solutions in every situation instead of focusing on the problems.”

“I don’t typically make New Year’s resolutions because I’m not one to make drastic changes just for the sake of making them or just because the calendar starts over,” blogged Kate before going on to share her super exciting resolutions! And no, stop being the b-word wasn’t one of them! “However, I do aim for certain things as I organize and prioritize my life all year long. For example, I make goals to fix or finish certain projects around the house, goals for giving the kids certain life experiences and fitness and career goals for myself.”

Kate reflects more on what she learned in the last year: “I also learned to step back and survey the situation before acting on something. For the most part, this has worked and overall I feel more peaceful and more confident that I can handle whatever life throws at me. I’ve also noticed my kids are becoming problem solvers, too, which is very encouraging!”

She adds, “I’ve always said that I don’t live apologetically; I live passionately! A great way to do that is to learn from the past and make it better in the future.”

And finally, the mom of eight also recently revealed she wants back on TV her own fitness show!

Last weekend, Kate took to her Twitter page to let fans know that her own fitness show would be a dream come true! “A fitness show would be a dream come true,” tweeted Kate, who recently ran a marathon. “Not for me only but a way to reach ALL moms who desire fitness but don’t know how!”

No word yet on whether or not her plus 8 would make cameos on the said fitness show.

Fans of MTV’s eponymous Teen Mom 2 know Jenelle Evans as the trouble girl gone good as she is shown trying to change her life, beat her addictions as well as regain custody of her two-year-old son, Jace.

Fans have supported Jenelle through her struggles to change her life, but OK! Magazine is reporting that Jenelle’s reformed image is merely an act for the cameras! Despite Jenelle recently claiming she has learned to “control her anger” and is working on being “civil instead of yelling,” behind the scenes Jenelle is apparently the same old volatile girl from last season!

“Jenelle has always had a temper, but now that she’s a ‘celebrity’ it’s gotten much worse,” an insider reports. “She has a sense of entitlement now, and if anyone tells her what to do – watch out!”

“Jenelle and her mom [Barabara Evans] never stop fighting — never,” says an insider who lives in the same town as the battling duo.”What’s bad is that Jace sees this all go down, all the time, every day.” At the center of Jenelle and Barbara’s arguments is Jace, whom Barbara still doesn’t trust alone with Jenelle.

Additionally, Jenelle isn’t limiting her aggression to family as she is also getting into fights with friends. Jenelle recently announced on Facebook that she was no longer getting along with roommate Hannah Inman. The two took their feud public with obscenity filled Twitter tirades and accusations. Classy, much? Hannah is Jenelle’s second roommate this winter, as the first one was unceremoniously kicked out for who knows what.

“Me and Hannah are officially not friends anymore,” the mature mother wrote on Facebook. “She simply used me for money, fame, ciggs, food, a cellphone, etc,” Jenelle published. I hope some of that money is also going towards the care of her son. #doubtit!

Further adding to the theory that Jenelle’s life is still a mess away from the cameras, Star Magazine has recently revealed that Jenelle has relapsed and wants to get back together with loser ex-boyfriend Kieffer Delp!

Friends recently revealed that during an MTV promotional tour the under-aged Jenelle was seen drinking alcohol. “One night Jenelle and some of the other girls went out to get alcohol to bring back to the hotel,” a source claims. “Jenelle was drinking beer.” Jenelle was also photographed supposedly smoking pot last year.

Jenelle’s problems are exacerbated by surrounding herself with bad influences. “Jenelle said she was going apartment hunting with this new friend of hers who smokes weed and drinks,” a friend disclosed. As for whether or not she has returned to her old pot head ways, friends aren’t sure. “I dont think Jenelle is smoking weed, but who really knows?”

Just recently some wild photos of Jenelle partying surfaced, which Jenelle claims are are from a couple months ago and she has since changed her behavior: “Yes i learned my lesson all those pics and videos r from two months ago. I never went back,” she tweeted.

And even worse for the beleaguered teen mama, who clearly has trouble making good decisions — she has big plans to get back together with Kieffer! “Jenelle told me that when Kieffer gets out of jail she’s more than likely going to get back with him,” the friend confesses. “She says that he doesn’t have anybody else.”

Perhaps she has moved on as photos from her Facebook page show her kissing a new guy and she has been posting about a person named Gary. We’ll see…

My two cents: Thank you MTV for exposing the sad and troubled worlds of these girls whose lives have clearly been deteriorated by the access to fame, attention and lots of money. If any of the above allegations are true, Jenelle needs to step away from the spotlight and get into therapy to really work through her issues so she can be the best mother possible to her little boy.

THOUGHTS ON THE REVELATIONS ABOUT JENELLE’S BEHAVIOR – DO YOU BELIEVE SHE IS A DIFFERENT PERSON AWAY FROM THE CAMERAS? HAS JENELLE CHANGED?

On last night’s episode of Real Housewives of Atlanta, new friendships were formed and relationships tested their boundaries as Peter and Cynthia struggled in their marriage and Phaedra and Apollo came together for the purpose of a new family business. Kim spends the whole episode annoyed that she has to parent her teenaged daughter – cause you know she has more important things to worry about like her 65 thousand gaudy-a$$ sofas. Does she feel bad every time she makes her husband move Big Poppa’s crap around?

Things start out in Phaedra’s kitchen where she is talking to her mom about opening her funeral home, Funerals Worth Dying For or Fabulous Funerals by Phaedra. Phaedra wants to leave a legacy for her son and thinks a funeral home is a way to do so. Isn’t she a lawyer – Ayden can’t take over the firm? Anyways, Phaedra is envisioning events, not funerals and her plan is to “throw ‘em in the ground with a bang!” There’s only one problem – Apollo has no interest in the mortuary business. No interest at all. Phaedra decides since he likes driving and is strong he can pick up the bodies and transport them to the mortuary. In fact, he can swap out going to the gym for lifting bodies since it’s such good exercise.
