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?

According to a new report, Taylor Armstrong’s Real Housewives of Beverly Hills castmates are “disgusted” with her decision to release a tell-all book just months after the tragic suicide of husband Russell Armstrong.

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.”

All righty. Moving on to Kim Richards, who is currently getting help in rehab. A source tells PEOPLE that Kim, 47, is seeking treatment for alcohol abuse and “other problems.”

“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.

TELL US – THOUGHTS ON THE LATEST?

It appears fired Real Housewives of New York star Jill Zarin is having a hard time accepting that her Housewives days are over!

See, Jill still believes she’s very popular and therefore deserves the freebies and perks that came with being a Bravo housewife! The NY Post is reporting that for her Nov 30th birthday, Jill’s “aides” asked several restaurants if they would be willing to “comp dinner for eight” in exchange for “press and tweets” about her experience.

Sadly, for the once semi-famous Jill no one leaped on the opportunity to be included in her Jill Zarin Newsletter! Instead, Jill and 11 friends dined at Lavo, which Bobby Zarin paid for. Jill’s assistant, Sarah Vitale, claims it was far less outrageous than it appears and she simply “reached out to restaurants who have offered to host dinners for Jill in the past… we went with Lavo because she’d never been there before.”

In addition to wanting free food, Jill’s assistant apparently requested gifts from several P.R. firms. When asked if this is true, Sarah told the post Jill had no knowledge of her requests. “They sent her stuff in the past, so I didn’t think it was a big deal.” To be fair, these are standard practices and most celebs are comped all kinds of things. The big question being, is Jill a celeb?

Kelly Bensimon may be crazy, but she has some smokin’ hot legs — at least when they’re Photoshopped! Kelly recently did a sit down with AVENUE Magazine where she talked about her experiences on the Real Housewives of New York, then did some modely poses in lace underwear!

In addition to telling the mag she wants to get married again and have a baby boy, Kelly discussed how being on a reality show impacted her life and she has nothing but good things to say, including that she made a “life-long” friend in fellow firee Jill Zarin! Indeed, Jill confirmed 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.”

As for what she’s gained from the show, Kelly reveals: “I’m a 43-year-old woman who [Bravo] have empowered, who can now support herself and her kids.”

“I wasn’t going into it like it’s my lifelong goal. My legacy isn’t the Housewives. My legacy is the future of my kids.” Which is actually kind of a refreshingly non-fameho attitude.

“I learned a lot from the process, ” Kelly declares. “Can you imagine being in a room with women you don’t know who are screaming and yelling at you for no reason? It took me one scene to recognize that anger came from fear.” And it took her two seasons to realize crazy came from… ? Additionally, Kelly obviously isn’t embarrassed that her very public breakdown will be immortalized for years to come. “The show is going to be on for a long time yet,” she shares. “It’s like Baywatch.” Yeah — with faaar less hot bikini bods! And speaking of bodies, Kelly’s Photoshop Spectacular for the mag is below!

This has not been not been a good year for Teen Mom star Amber Portwood! The troubled mom has gone through a suicide attempt, rehab, and numerous break-ups with Gary Shirley and is now admitting to being diagnosed Bipolar.

In the latest incident RadarOnline is reporting that Amber was caught instigating a fight and scrapping with a woman at an Indiana IHOP last month. All class, no trash there! “She was drunk, and there was another girl in the restaurant who had been drinking too and apparently said something about Amber to her friend,” a source revealed to Star magazine.

“Amber instigated the fight,” the source adds. “She told the girl, ‘You don’t know anything about me! I’m gonna whup your ass!’ They just attacked each other.” In the video, Amber is seen wearing a white t-shirt and flailing her arms in the air before she straight up charges the woman. A photo of an irate Amber during the incident is below.

“There were a couple punches thrown and hair pulling, then they were separated,” the witness reports. No word if charges were filed or not, but I imagine they were asked to leave the restaurant…

Amber has announced that her often erratic behavior can partially be explained by bipolar disorder, which she was diagnosed with three years ago.

Speaking to E! News, Amber opened up about her diagnosis and how it affects her life. “I struggle with it. I hate it. I grieve over it,” she shares. “When I went to rehab for two months, they diagnosed me with dissociative disorder too, which makes me black out. People don’t understand what it’s like.”

Despite the struggles, Amber reveals things are looking up for her in life (really? see above?) as she now has a new boyfriend, Mike who she adores. “He’s a gorgeous man. We haven’t spent a day apart since we met,” she says.

“I always knew I wouldn’t be with [baby daddy] Gary for the long term,” Amber confesses. “But with Mike, I know he’s the one. We never fight. He balances me out.” The couple has been seeing each other for about a month.

And speaking about the Nov 18 dispute at IHOP, Amber insists she did not start the fight! “Yes, we did go have a couple of drinks,” she admitted, saying she was with her new boyfriend Mike. “But I was not drunk. We were sitting by ourselves, laughing and talking and my legs were up on his, just having a good time. Suddenly, I hear this couple make these racist comments.”

“I looked over and said, ‘Excuse me, but why are you starting drama? Please do everyone a favor and keep your comments to yourself,’” adding that the comments persisted. “So that’s when I got up and told her to shut her f–king mouth.”

Amber explains she hates being approached in public because she is often made fun of based on what audiences see on TV.

“I’m sick and tired of people bashing me every time I leave my house,” she snapped. “When I go out, I mind my own business, but people try to fight me and get me going because I guess they think I’m most famous for fighting Gary,” Amber laments.

“I get picked on every time I go out in public. I just want to be a normal 21-year-old. I do my duties, I take care of my child. Yes, I did hit Gary, and what people saw was an angry Amber who reacted to the father of her child telling her he had cheated on her.”

“People pick on me just to see if I’ll fight them. They think I’m this hard person, but I’m not! I’m a good person. I love my friends. I love people… I just want people to know that people change. I’m doing really well. I’m happy. Yes, I am on an MTV show, but I deserve a normal life, too. People need to realize that the show, Teen Mom, is on TV just to help others not make the same mistakes. That’s it.”

DO YOU BELIEVE AMBER WAS RESPONSIBLE FOR THE FIGHT? THOUGHTS ON AMBER’S INTERVIEW? ARE YOU SURPRISED BY THE INFORMATION SHE REVEALED?


A winner was crowned last night on America’s Next Top Model’s all-stars finale, but the only thing viewers want to know today is why was finalist Angelea Preston disqualified?

Angela, alongside Lisa D’Amato and Allison Harvard, was competing for the crown. However, during an odd final judges panel, Tyra Banks and the other judges revealed Angelea had been disqualified… without giving viewers any reason or explanation.

“We’re back in Los Angeles on the Top Model set and we’re here for a special finale that’s being conducted under unusual circumstances,” said Tyra. “It turns out, our production team and the network learned information from Angelea that disqualifies her from the competition,” added fashion photographer Nigel Barker.

With Angelea (pictured far right) disqualified, Lisa and Allison were left to battle for the win and Lisa came out on top. Unfortunately for Lisa, viewers are more concerned with Angela’s disqualification.

According to PEOPLE, the speculation is that Angelea might have given away some finale spoilers and her possible win on her personal Facebook page before the show aired, which would equal violating the rules of the competition.

Yes, the rumor now is that Angelea was actually the original winner and that following her disqualification, the show had to re-tape the ending. In fact, the CW network admits they only learned of the information about Angelea AFTER the show wrapped, and that they did have to re-shoot scenes.

The network said in a statement: “After production wrapped on the current cycle of America’s Next Top Model, we learned information that made Angelea ineligible and she was subsequently disqualified from the competition. As a result, new scenes were filmed to address this for the audience during the finale.”

Wowzers. As for Angelea, she seems to be taking her disqualification rather well as she tweeted the following last night: “OMG!!!! IM TRENDING WORLDWIDE on twitter right now!!!!!!!!!! Wowwwww!! That’s the whole world!! Lol! #humbled!! Thanks y’all!!! #LOVE.”

Meanwhile, runner up Allison had the following to say when asked about Angelea’s disqualification. “I think what happened with Angelea is more of a personal thing that went on with her. Out of respect and undying love for her, I think I will remain silent,” said Allison to Zap2It. And the mystery continues…

On the last episode of Braxton Family Values and pretty much every episode before that, viewers have watched Towanda Braxton struggle to take care of her family while her deadbeat husband Andre Carter refuses to get a job! And despite her so called separation from Andre, the two continue to live together.

In an interview with Art Terrell of Atlanta’s KISS 104, Towanda gets put in the hot seat and tries to justify her open marriage with the mooching Andre, who refuses to care for his family.

“You know what, with me being on the road all the time with my sisters and filming and stuff. I needed somewhere there of course with my kids. And if I’m not there, their father should be there,” said Towanda of why she wants to continue living with Andre.

Towanda continued, “With the kids, we do things together. But as far as our marriage we’re separated. I think that because you are separated and you’re not with that person, you don’t have to be mean and nasty. It doesn’t have to get ugly.”

When the host insists they’re not separated because, you know, they continue to live together (albeit in her sister Trina Braxton’s house), Towanda insists the economy is to blame for that. “We don’t sleep in the same bed. We’re like roommates… There are so many people now that are going through the same thing that I’m going through because of the recession, because of the economy. It’s affected so many people,” she stated. Uh uh.

Maybe it’s just me but in watching last week’s episode it seems Towanda still has feelings for Andre or perhaps she’s simply scared to be alone.

Moving on to Toni Braxton, who this season has been accused of sibling rivalry, particularly being jealous of her youngest sister Tamar Braxton and her growing popularity.

In an interview with Essence, Toni states: “I’m a little disappointed about what’s on the blogs, and people thinking that I don’t want to help my sisters, or that I want to make them perpetual backup singers. People have to remember that this is a reality show and some things are done for entertainment. I love my family, I’ll do anything for them. It makes me not want to do reality show anymore because I wouldn’t want anyone to look at my family and me in a negative light.”

When asked about her decision to fire her brother-in-law Vince Herbert, Toni blames it on “a conflict of interest.”

“I love Vince, he’s great, but I thought it was a conflict of interest. He manages everyone in my family. I do think Tamar was disappointed because it became this public thing, and people thought her husband wasn’t capable. Its nothing like that, Vince is great for other people, for me as a family member, way too much,” says Toni. “There’s a little bit of truth to the idea that you shouldn’t mix business with family. You can’t separate when it’s family or business. If something goes wrong, I can call my manager and yell and cuss. I can’t do that to my brother-in-law, that’s not cool.”

So what’s going on between Toni and ex-husband Keri Lewis? “We’ve gone out on a few dates, I’m not gonna deny that,” says Toni. “When you have kids with a person, and you really love a person, but you realize that being together is not an option right now.”

When it comes to her comments about fame changing people, Toni admits fame has changed her sisters just a tad. “I do think success has changed some people. My sisters want to go the Ivy [restaurant in L.A.], and all those places with the paparazzi, whereas I’m like, ‘okay, I’ve done that. I don’t want to get dressed up to go eat.’ But I understand them because I was the same way when I first got into the business. I wanted to be seen, so I get that, because when you’re new in something you’re supposed to relish in it,” says Toni.

Toni also makes it clear there is no rift between her and her sisters, insisting the reason she’s been missing out on promotional appearances with them is because she was sick.

TELL US – YOU BUYING WHAT TOWANDA’S SELLING OR DO YOU THINK SHE STILL HAS FEELINGS FOR ANDRE? DO YOU THINK TONI IS JEALOUS OF TAMAR’S POPULARITY?


I was anxious to see last night’s Survivor, because the Savaii are now completely eliminated from the Te Tuna, with Ozzy and Cochran residing on Redemption Island. It will be interesting to see how BHCP’s admission plays out with his alliance members.

Cochran joins Ozzy who doesn’t say “I told you so” but asks for Cochran’s support when/if he and Coach are the final two. Cochran is insulted that Ozzy already thinks he has to chance to win the duel.

Back at camp tensions are running high after Brandon’s ridiculous honesty rant at the most recent tribal council. What else is new? BHCP wants to bless the day, but Edna walks off in a huff since she’s “not really part of this tribe.” Edna feels duped by a bunch of people who are talking about on both sides of their mouths. She feels foolish, but BHCP is kind enough to pray for her. Edna is venting to Coach about Brandon while he arrives screaming he’s found some Sprint tree-mail.
