There’s never a dull moment in the lives of Real Housewives of Atlanta‘s stars! In the latest, NeNe Leakes is speaking out about the drama and confronting fans speculation that much of the drama may be scripted to make good TV. And newbie, possible non-Housewife, Marlo Hampton is sowing her wild oats after admitting to a split from boyfriend Charles Grant!
Appearing on The Talk, NeNe calls the outlandish confrontations and crazy behavior ” very real.” “We’re not scripted, and we say whatever we wanna say,” she explains, denying that the scenes are not “amped up for television.” NeNe does admit that the very real fighting gets “exhausting.” And although her job makes her so very tired with it’s constant negativity NeNe feels it’s also “very entertaining.”
Revealing that she does not consider her co-stars friends, NeNe explains they were “associates” prior to the show, “but now we’re not!” NeNe believes being in the spotlight has ruined several of her relationships. “You’re on this platform and people are judging and talking about you, and relationships break up because you’re on television… I don’t know what reality television does, but it breaks up relationships.”
When asked just how rich she is by the ladies on The Talk, NeNe claims her argument with castmate Sheree Whitfield was blown out of proportion and she does not feel pressure to ‘keep up with the Jones.’
“When I said that to Sheree, I felt like she was trying to pull me down. Like you don’t have this, and you don’t have that. You don’t have this…I was like, ‘No, No, No. I have it all honey,’ ” NeNe insists. “It wasn’t just about money… I have so many things. I am so blessed. I’m so rich in spirit; I’m rich in life; and in so many ways. And that was my point to her. Don’t try to pull me down, I am VERY rich.”
Finally, TamaraTattles reported the very exciting news that NeNe will be a guest star on Glee as swim coach Roz Washington! Wow! Yes, you heard it — NeNe will be making her acting debut in the musical comedy, but don’t worry she won’t be singing — or wearing a swimsuit! NeNe recently Tweeted: “Off 2 work again out here n LA” I’m guessing this is really going to burn some people’s biscuits!
In other RHOA news Marlo recently confirmed that the ‘lil engagement she was rumored to have with Charles Grant is off and has been for a while! Releasing a statement to TheYBF.com, Marlo declared that the couple is officially splitsville in the wake of Charles’ recent arrest for felony charges involving fraudulent checks. Yes, Charles was arrested a week ago for writing a bad check for an amount over $500. His mugshot is below. Isn’t he very rich?
“I truly regret that this has happened to him,” Marlo tells the blog. “While my relationship with Charles ended earlier this year, I hope he will put these challenging circumstances behind him and move forward.”
Now that she is officially single, Marlo celebrated in style by hosting a glamorous Christmas party at her home. Does anyone know what exactly Marlo does for a living? Does she pay her bills in theKim Zolciak fashion?
None of the Housewives were present at the fete, but Lawrence and Derek J made an appearance! NeNe was invited, but apparently unable to attend because she Tweeted her apologies to her new friend! Photos of Marlo’s party and her chic home are below. Say what you will about Ms. Hampton, but girl has style.

According to a new report, Khloe Kardashian continues to remain desperate for a baby.
Khloe, 27, graces the latest cover of UsWeekly magazine, which reveals she is currently undergoing invitro while putting major pressure on herself to get pregnant.
While Kourtney recently revealed she is pregnant with her second child, Khloe and her NBA hubby Lamar Odom, 32, have been doing everything they can to get pregnant since tying the knot two years ago. “Kourtney’s news just highlights that Khloe’s not pregnant yet,” a source told UsWeekly. “She’s thrilled for Kourtney, but she’s really sensitive. And it’s hard to see your sister get something you want so badly.”
UsWeekly reports that Khloe’s desperation for a baby led her to start in vitro fertilization back in September. Khloe has reportedly had several consultations about IVF, began taking prenatal vitamins and is currently prepping for the procedure, which costs $10,000 to $15,000 per treatment.
And in true Kardashian fashion, UsWeekly adds that Khloe’s fertility woes will be a key plotline on the next season of her E! reality hit Khloe & Lamar, which is currently filming and will premiere early next year. Khloe will reportedly open up about the stress of trying to conceive. “I know she’s ‘the funny sister,’ but she’s the kind of person who does get really stressed out,” says the source.
As we speculated this week, perhaps Khloe is already pregnant. She appears to be sporting a baby bump in recent photos, which would also explain her recent weight gain. Plus if Khloe’s pregnant, it would further explain why pimpmomager Kris Jenner had Kourtney announce her pregnancy at just 9 weeks. This would allow Khloe to announce her own pregnancy soon, garnering her individual attention as well as more money for her announcement!
Meanwhile news broke yesterday that Khloe’s hubby Lamar, who plays for the Los Angeles Lakers, was going to be traded to New Orleans. The deal, however, fell through with sources close to Khloe telling TMZ today that she is ready and willing to move anywhere for Lamar. It’s still a great possibility that Lamar will be traded out of Los Angeles.
In the VERY awkward interview, Kris, 26, was asked numerous questions about Kim and his divorce, while he gave the same response over and over again simply stating he wanted to move forward and focus on basketball and his charity.
“Through everything, I’m just focused on family and preparing for basketball,” said Kris. “For me, it’s just, certain things happen in life and you’ve got to move forward. I’m excited to be where I’m at right now, with the NBA season coming up.”
When asked about his new E! show Kourtney and Kim Take New York, Kris made it clear he is NOT a fan. “The only things I really watch on TV of myself is playing basketball. I’ve never been someone to really watch the show on TV or anything like that,” he said. “I don’t really play into all the gossip.”
TMZ is now reporting that Kris is “livid” and felt ambushed by Good Morning America. Kris is claiming he was under the impression that the interview would not focus on his split from Kimmie!
Sources close to Kris tell TMZ he knew he would be asked about the divorce during the sit-down, but didn’t expect to be grilled like he was. Adding that the only reason he agreed to do the interview was to promote his charity work as well as support his mother’s cooking segment on the show. Kris is now “livid” over the way the interview turned out.
However, GMA is calling foul on Kris’ claims saying no pre-show deal was made to limit the interview. Love ya Kris but did you really think GMA wanted to talk to you about charity work and your mother’s cooking abilities??? Le sigh. It has also been widely reportedly that the prenup, signed by both Kim and Kris, prohibits them from spilling the beans in the event of a divorce.

Despite the lawsuits, controversies and negative media attention from the last year, reality mogul Bethenny Frankel has been named to The Hollywood Reporter’s Women in Entertainment 2011: Power 100 list. Bethenny landed at spot number 100, but hey it’s better than nothing, right?
“Not too long ago, I didn’t have anything at all,” Bethenny recounts to THR. “It’s been abrupt: fame, marriage, baby, success.” As her reality show wraps filming for its third season, Bethenny has no plans of slowing down – she has gag orders to issue and fake dramas to reproduce, y’all! Perhaps the skinnygirl should slow it down as she recently claimed she is so busy she forgets to eat!
“I have a couple things on the fire, probably three or four, including a few project possibilities with Bravo. We’ve been great partners,” she reveals, adding that her first novelSkinny Dipping will be in stores in May 2012.
Despite her talk show not getting picked up, Bethenny is not daunted as she has other development deals in process and even hints that she may make her life story into a movie! “I’ve been approached,” she shares, “but you have to make the right choices. I’m not going to force anything.” Oh sweet lemonaide, that is just too much!
Moving on, the Bethenny Ever After star will stop at nothing to indoctrinate the public with Skinnygirl and force upon us a new product pretty much every day. We’ve been shape weared, and cleansed inside out, and boozed up, and skin cared and snackbar-ed, and now dressed.
For those of you who are tired of the Bravo Home Shopping Network (a.k.a. all of their shows), I have some unfortunate news: Skinnygirl now produces “loungewear.” Oh, yuck yay! Bethenny announced the addition of the newest products on her website. The collection of Skinnygirl garments features yoga pants, a tank and a t-shirt — all emblazoned with her logo, of course! Bethenny advertised that the collection is “perfect to workout in, run errands in, or simply relax in.”
Cafemom reviewed the products and wonders just what kind of woman wants pants with Skinnygirl on the thigh? Their assessment: “Bethenny’s made some awesome products in her day, but this line of clothes misses the mark big time. Because the last thing I want people reading on my clothes is Skinnygirl. I feel like it’s just begging for judgment.”
“Maybe she [Bethenny] wants her clothes to shame us into living the Skinnygirl life,” the reviewer wonders. “But I want my clothes to make me feel good, not guilty, don’t you?” Perhaps the reviewer is biased, but she has a point. If I want clothes that make me feel guilty, I’ll put on my pre-baby leather pants. A photo of the Skinnygirl Loungewear collection is below.

VH1 has finally spilled the beans… the original Basketball Wives will be returning for a fourth season on the network. That is good to know, seeing as reports have been swarming about the cast filming in New York City before rounding out the season in Miami. And of course, VH1 is confirming two new cast members for the February 2012 premiere.
Joining the party is Kesha Nichols whose fiance broke off their engagement mere hours before their wedding. Additionally, a more notorious newcomer will be on the show as well. Kenya Bell is described by VH1 as someone who “is in the process of finalizing a divorce from a basketball star and is one of the most notorious and controversial wives in the league.” The network also cites the juicy tidbit that Bell’s “infamous reputation is well known by the other wives.”
As for the veteran stars, the site promises that Royce and Suzie still “attempt to navigate uncharted waters as new chapters open in their lives.” Ooh, it sounds almost cryptic enough to get my attention! Tami begins to make her mark on the business world, while Shaunie focuses on continuing to stir the pot “establishing herself as a business mogul.” Yeah, that sounds riveting!
Of course, after Jenn’sradio interview last season in which she had less than stellar things to say about her bestie Evelyn’s engagement to Chad Ochocinco, their friendship has chilled considerably. The new season kicked off yesterday with a special photo shoot (the photos are below) and live video feed, complete with cast interviews on the show’s homepage.
Speaking of Jennelyn or Evennifer, whichever you prefer, the ladies may still be communicating even if they aren’t actually speaking in “real life.” Last week, Jenn tweeted her feelings with a passive aggressive sounding post that seems to imply that she has plenty of friends and doesn’t need Evelyn. I guess she no longer thinks she misses someone…
And back in September, things got ugly between the former BFFs on Twitter when Jen made a generic tweet that stated: “‘Hoes Be Winning.” Evelyn apparently thought the tweet was about her and went off on Jen. Evelyn’s tweets are below -
My circle of friends gets smaller and smaller & I love it. I don’t have time for part time fake friendships. Keep it moving!
#Youshouldbeembarassed that you are living a double life & no one knows who you really are #fake
I’m the last one to mess with when I know all of your business. #subtweet
I’m a ROTTWEILER & your a mutha f-n CHIHUAHUA. I will chew u up and spit u out. “Keep it moving” #TryMeIfYouWantTo
Shots are about to be FIRED. Lets go! Trust me, you won’t win boo!!!
Kind of sad when someone makes a tweet about “hoes” and you automatically assume it’s about you.
Finally, below are new behind-the-scenes photos of the BBW cast as they shot their new cast photos for season 4! Even in the photos, you can sense the tension between the ladies!

JWoww a.k.a. Jenni Farley is known for her over-the-top sex appeal, but in a recent Maxim spread she looks equal parts gaunt, exhausted, and old — was this supposed to appeal to the vampire lovers amongst us? Basically the cover is a hot stinking mess of ugly. Where’s the Photoshop when you need it!?
JWoww was so excited to land the cover of the infamous mag she claimed to have “cried” when she learned the news, but I’m wondering if she cried when she saw the pictures! Yikes!
Fans of JWoww are concerned that the booby Jersey Shore beauty, who has become somewhat of the surprising voice of reason amongst the other cray-cray messes she shares a home with, looked well, not quite herself save for the über cleavage.
Talking to Maxim, JWoww dishes on last season’s Italian fiasco adventure, Jersey Shore’s upcoming season and how to girl fight like a pro! “It was insane,” she says about last season’s trip to Italy. “I’m glad we’re going back to the Shore now, because Italy was hard.”
“Even rewatching it is pretty intense! It’s very emotional, and I was there and lived it. But we’re fine now, and that’s the best thing about us,” JWoww says of the extreme filming situation. “We watch it together and laugh at what we went through.”
“We definitely had to rely on each other, which made our relationships stronger, but also made us more sick of each other. Temperatures were running high. People were fighting. Heads were hitting walls.”
Even worse than the cast-wide drama was the lack of available GTL solutions! “There was no tanning situation,” JWoww laments. “I opened JWoww’s Tanning Salon and was spraying everyone myself just to get by. When we got back to Jersey, we kind of OD’d on the tanning. We all burned our asses off pretty bad.”
But Italy wasn’t all bad. There were some amazing adventures the castmates experienced together. “Italy was an especially amazing place for me, because I was an art history student. And besides the statues, I got to see the streets where, like, da Vinci and Michelangelo lived.”
While JWoww is glad to be back in Seaside Heights for the upcoming season, Italy isn’t over yet! “A lot of the drama that came from Italy has to get finished. So you’ll see that.” If MTV fears fans may tire of the same old drama, Jenni disagrees. “You could put us anywhere, and we’d make a great show.”
Fans can expect more of the same that made the cast famous in the first place. “We’re back at the T-shirt store and living in the same house,” Jenni explains. “We appreciate it more because Italy was so different. We jumped in headfirst.” Despite her excitement over the gang getting back to their old antics, JWoww thinks she’s definitely grown up over four seasons. “I was in a bad relationship during the first two seasons, so I took that out on people I shouldn’t have. I was definitely more of a bitch. ” And now, she feels more like “the mom” of the house.
She may have cooled it in the bitch department, but JWoww can still throw down. Her advice for guidettes in drama? “Pull your hair back. You don’t want some bitch yanking on your hair.”
As for what’s next? “Me and Snooki just started filming a spin-off. I hope we go on a road trip,” she shares. Oh boy…
Now onto those so-called sexy shots! Is JWoww sick? Hungover? I think it’s just the result of some bad, bad make up and terrible lighting making her look washed out and flat. That said for a men’s magazine who wants to sell sex, it’s not very appealing. You can view JWoww’s photoshoot below. Maybe they were going for an artistic vibe…
JWoww has faced accusations of plastic surgery in the past but brushed it off as weight loss, which could explain the gaunt facial expression. After JWoww posted samples of the shot on her Facebook page, some fans reacted negatively with one accusing her of looking “plastic.” And another fan chastising her for her “new” look: “STOP having messing up your face!!!! You looked so good before it all !!!!!”
“Fame got to her head. Be original Jwow.. How more plastic can you get??” a different fan lambasted. Not everyone thought she looked like a Twilight extra, many fans thought she looked hot no matter what!
And yesterday on The Wendy Williams Show, JWoww again denied plastic surgery! “They say I got my cheeks done, they say I got my nose, my chin. I just lost 15 pounds, and it was all in my face and neck,” she asserts. “That’s what was insulting to me, because I was like, ‘What did my nose look like 15 pounds ago?’”

With Teen Mom 2 second’s season premiering this past Tuesday night, I am sure the young mothers (if they are anything like their original counterparts) will be giving us a lot on which to report.
Never one to be out of trouble the lime light for long is the troubled Jenelle Evans. I must say that I hope Jenelle (she’s admittedly one of my favorites… I see a lot of potential in her — let the comments begin! :)) gets her life in order, and as Hollybaby.com is reporting, it appears that she is hopefully changing her situation for the better.
Highlighting a recent magazine interview, the blog discusses Jenelle’s decision to check into rehab. She explains, “My life just started spiraling out of control, my emotions were running wild and I didn’t know how to slow them down. I was having trouble quitting marijuana. I just had to get away from all the drama. If I hadn’t gone, I’m pretty sure I’d be in jail.” She continues, “I’m doing everything in the right direction. I’ve learned how to control my anger.”
As viewers of Teen Mom 2 are well aware, it’s Jenelle’s anger — or mishandling of that anger — that gets her in the most trouble. She admits, “Now when I have problems with people, I confront them about it, but I’m civil instead of yelling. I learned it’s better to leave than have Jace watch me argue with my mom.” Well, that revelation is clearly a step in the right direction!
However, Jenelle believes that her mother, the always yelling Barbara Evans, isn’t ready to see her daughter’s improvement… although many would likely say, ‘Can you blame her?’ Still Jenelle reveals, “She’s just really scared of me getting custody back, because I’m so close. She’s going to do anything in her power for me not to get him back.” I have to wonder if Barbara is so anti-Jenelle as Jenelle seems to think, or just simply pro-Jace.
While Jenelle continues with counseling, she wishes her mother would join her in an effort to resolve their issues. According to Jenelle, her mother will not attend therapy. She explains, “She claims she doesn’t need it and that I’m the one that needs it.” Jenelle adds that the pair don’t get together to tune into the MTV hit because it will likely result in a fight. As for Barbara, she comments, “Jenelle continues to struggle with motherhood.”
Still, Barbara hopes that Jenelle will continue to improve. “I’m hoping the situation gets better,” says Barbara. “I can never give up on my daughter, and it’s important to me that Jace has a close relationship with his mom.”
As Jenelle continues to work on herself and her relationships, she also seems to be faring very well (read: incredibly lucky) in her legal battles. EOnline.com reports that Jenelle has once again avoided jail time. After her recent hearing, the reality star (I hate to give these girls that much credence, but MTV already has, so it is what it is) tweeted, “And the judge congratulated me to [sic] being clean since August and got drug tested at court and I passed of course. Probation got continued!!” Now, let’s just take some of that exuberance and channel it into being a mother and regaining custody.
After facing charges for drug possession and, later, assault, U.S. District Judge Marion R. Warren of Brunswick County, North Carolina last week found that Jenelle was abiding by all of her probation terms. Until her probation period expires in April, Jenelle will still be subject to twice monthly drug testing. Jenelle can also cross off her list the required anger-management courses and parenting classes which were a stipulation of her probation, as she has completed them.
Her attorney Dustin Sullivan states, “She has been doing everything that has been asked of her. She’s been doing tremendously well.” He says confidently, “I have no doubt it will be a successful probation.”

WHAT DO YOU THINK OF JENELLE’S INTERVIEW? DO YOU BELIEVE THAT SHE IS TAKING STEPS IN THE RIGHT DIRECTION? SHOULD JENELLE REGAIN CUSTODY IF SHE COMPLETES ALL OF HER PROBATION REQUIREMENTS?
A source tells the Hollywood Life blog that Taylor’s costars think it’s “horrible” that she’s writing her book so soon after Russell’s passing.
“When Taylor announced she was going to write a book about her supposed abusive relationship with her husband everyone thought it was just disgusting,” says the source. “It’s just too soon and the cast just thinks this speaks volumes about who Taylor is at heart.”
As for Taylor, she has stated in the past that she is writing the memoir, titled Hiding from Reality: My Story of Love, Loss and Finding the Courage Within, to help other women in abusive relationships. In fact, in a statement given to ABC news today, Taylor states the only reason she’s releasing her book now is because Russell is no longer here, citing she would have been too scared to do so if he was still alive.
“I wish I could have ben able to tell my story before now… But, until my husband Russell’s suicide, I didn’t feel safe to bring my story into the light, to help all battered and abused women, and men, and aid them in their struggle,” says Taylor.
Taylor continues, “I discussed my book Monday night for the first time on Bravo’s Watch What Happens Live. The overwhelming response from viewers and their outpourings of support has been gratifying. From the bottom of my heart, I believe if my book can help others find the courage to deal with the pain and fear of their abusive relationships, I will have made a real difference in their lives.”
“Kim has been to rehab more than once before,” says the source, “but every time is a new time, and everyone just hopes this sticks and that she gets the help she needs. It’s serious.”
The source who reveals Kim has been “erratic” also adds that she is no longer living with her boyfriend Ken Blumenfeld and that she was pretty much homeless before rehab.
“He’s not in the picture. No one really knows what the deal was with them, but Kim doesn’t live with Ken,” the source says. “She’s basically homeless, staying with various friends. She doesn’t have a home base. It’s not unusual for people to not hear from her for long stretches of time. It’s been that way for years.”
Kim’s family is, however, “relieved she’s getting help,” states the source. “She has lots of issues. She needs help.”
The Rumor Fix blog adds that Kim is at the Betty Ford Center near Palm Springs. She will reportedly be in the program for 30 days at a cost of $27,900. Could Bravo be footing the bill? After all, it was reported this week that the network forced Kim to get help.
