On last night’s episode of Basketball Wives: L.A., Jackie played puppet master while Draya tried to keep her in check. Malaysia previewed her jewelry line, and Gloria contemplated her upcoming (maybe? maybe not?) marriage to Matt. Laura did her best to dodge Jackie’s tirades, and Imani…well, she showed up for the last five minutes.
Jackie is confiding in Draya about how Laura has been talking badly about Jackie behind her back. Given that the ladies are all at Laura’s charity event, Jackie doesn’t want to start anything, but she wants Laura to know she’s on to her. Malaysia arrives and can tell that Jackie is upset about…something.
Of course, with Jackie’s ever changing personalities, the ladies are probably used to that. Laura praises Jackie on her outfit, and Jackie politely accepts her compliment with a pointed, “Thanks, you don’t think it makes me look pregnant, do you?” There are a few more pregnancy snarks from Jackie who is pulling up her shirt to show her belly, and Laura looks a tad uncomfortable while the other girls just look plain confused. Apparently, Laura has been dogging Jackie’s fashion sense, weight, and hair all over town. Um, what’s that whole pot/kettle/those who live in glass houses saying? I doubt we’ll ever see either of these ladies on a best dressed list.

Kelly Bensimon just has so much cray-cray to spew forth into the world I can’t keep up! In her newest round of inane interviews, Kelly dispenses some unique and special advice to Real Housewives of New York’s newest housewives and reflects on her own experiences on the show! Oh and she talks about getting FIRED!
“I’m not angry,” Kelly explained to PEOPLE in regards to being terminated. “I had a great opportunity. I mean, three years! Three years I’m on television. … The show is on all over the world and we’re still going to be on for a long time. It’s like the Baywatch of Housewives. For me, it’s just the gift that keeps on giving.” Baywatch of Housewives? I just can’t…
“I have a really kooky life and I’m not going to make apologies for it. I have a lot of fun and I make a lot of mistakes,” she describes of her experiences on the show. You can say that again!
The good news is Kelly seems understanding about being let-go; which is a great attitude (ahem, Silex!). “The show started off in one way and it needs to take a different direction because that’s the nature of the TV beast,” Kelly mused. “I’m excited to watch it. It’s going to be great.”
As for the new ladies, who Bravo has yet to announce, Kelly explains: “I don’t know them, but I’m sure they’re going to be very interesting, lovely women.” She also has some advice for the newest housewives: Anything she would do, do the opposite! Kidding, kidding!
“Make as many mistakes as possible,” she advised. “Do anything that you can do that you can learn from your mistakes. Because if you don’t learn from your mistakes then you’re what? Boring!” Yeah, but is boring better or worse than insane?
Kelly also assures us her career in reality TV is far from over! “I love doing reality because for me, I just have a really good time,” Kelly revealed, seemingly forgetting about Scary Island and that whole “systematic bullying” thing. “I just want to keep growing and showing my kids that out of anything bad comes something great.”
In other fired housewives news, the unstoppableJill Zarin is writing a book! After a fan Tweeted Jill enquiring if she was writing a tell-all, Jill replied: “Starting to write down the truth!” Actually if Jill wrote a tell-all, I would definitely read it!
Jill, who has been quite the busy little Tweeter lately, has also pledged her support to Teresa Giudice after Sunday night’s explosive reunion, giving credence to the three against one drama and seconding the rumor that Teresa had no idea Melissa Gorga and Kathy Wakile were on the show until after her contract was signed!
When a fan voiced their opinion that Bravo put Teresa’s family on the show for drama, Jill agreed, stating “100 percent true. @Teresa_Giudice had no idea till contract signed” Jill is fighting mad!
Jill also revealed that her salary was the reason Bravo decided to fire her! When a fan Tweeted:“@BravoTV couldn’t afford Jill Zarin anymore. Money can’t buy you class,” Jill responded: “Exactly! You are the first to figure out!”
THOUGHTS ON KELLY BENSIMON’S ADVICE TO THE NEWEST LADIES OF RHONY? WOULD YOU WATCH KELLY ON ANOTHER REALITY SHOW? ARE YOU SURPRISED JILL ZARIN IS PLANNING TO WRITE A TELL-ALL? ARE YOU EXCITED (OR IS THAT JUST ME)?
Kim Kardashian’s love life just never seems to work out – it’s just one unfortunate situation after another for the notorious sex-tape star and this time her marriage to Kris Humphries-Kardashian may be in big-time trouble! Their marriage has been plagued by rumors of tension since day one and it seems like things aren’t improving for the couple!
Life & Style is reporting that Kim is “miserable” and she and Kris are always fighting. In fact, Kim was recently overheard complaining to a friend over mani-pedis at Clover Nails in NYC, that she “didn’t know marriage was going to be so hard.” Wait – wasn’t she married before?
“With all this travel and work, it’s been a big adjustment for both of us,” she lamented. Further breaking the couple apart is Kim’s impending travels to Dubai and Australia. Unfortunately Kris is “not invited!” “She’s leaving him behind,” a source reveals.
Apparently mere months after her publicity stunt wedding, Kim wants to cry time-out on her marriage! “She doesn’t feel like she’s ready for the commitment,” a friend confided to the magazine. “Kim feels this all happened too soon, that she didn’t take the time to get to know Kris. She’s embarrassed – she rushed into things, and now she’s stuck.” Yikes.
Additionally Kim fears Kris used her for fame just like she used him for money and publicity.“Kim is definitely worried that Kris isn’t mature enough and could be using her for her money – especially since he’s not working right now with the NBA lockout,” according to a source from Kourtney & Kim Take New York(that’s a show?).
His immaturity combined with no certainty about where the couple is going to put down roots as they wait for Kris to sign with a basketball team, has forced Kim to put her baby-making plans on hold. Kim is apparently very dissatisfied that the couple has no real home and is currently living in a fancy hotel in NYC. The horror!
The source reveals Kim wishes she could participate in traditional wifely duties, like cooking Kris meals, but he would rather ditch her for burgers with his buddies. Makes sense to me – can she even talk about anything but herself?!
However, let’s get real here, their marital problems actually lie in Kim’s fears that Kris is upstaging her in the reality TV world! “He tries to have creative input in Kourtney & Kim Take New York. It’s her show, and he tries to dominate it.” She’s the number one famewhore in this relationship – not him!
Perhaps Kim is holding off on filing for the big D until they can cash all the million dollar checks they amassed in her big Made-For-TV, fantasy wedding! At least she can console herself by snuggling her Benjamins!

THOUGHTS ON KIM’S MARITAL WOES? ANOTHER PUBLICITY STUNT OR IS THE COUPLE HEADED FOR DIVORCE?
According to a new report by In Touch Weekly, style guru to the A-list Rachel Zoeis wasting away on a “dangerous mommy diet!”
The mag reports that family and friends of the 40-year-old stylist are worried about her weight and want her to remain healthy for her baby boy.
“She lives off of lattes and sparkling water,” reveals a family insider to In Touch. A business associate of Rachel adds, “She never takes time to eat and is a ball of anxiety.”
The mag states that the Rachel Zoe Projectstar — who reportedly refused to be photographed near a cupcake at a recent event — lost the small amount of baby weight she gained in just a month, while claiming it just fell off. “I swear to you I’ve done absolutely nothing. I’m nursing,” Rachel explained back then.
In Touch however makes it clear no one’s buying her story, including her husband Rodger Berman. “She’s fighting with him because he just wants her to slow down,” says the associate. “She is an amazing mom, but never takes care of herself,” adds the business associate.
As for Rachel, In Touch Weekly caught up with her during the recent Veuve Clicquot Polo Classic on October 9 (she is pictured above at that event), and she claimed to the mag that she doesn’t exercise and actually eats a lot.
When asked how she dropped the baby weight so quickly, Rachel stated: “I don’t know. I don’t exercise, it’s not something I enjoy. I eat a lot, if anything I probably eat more because when I was nursing you have to do that. I’m just really active. I mean, having a 6-month-old son is going to keep you on your feet, I think it’s kind of natural exercise.”
A new episode of The Rachel Zoe Project airs tonight on Bravo at 9/8c.

War veteranJ.R. Martinezfinally rose to the top last night earning the highest score of the night and praises from the judges! J.R. alongside partner Karina Smirnoff scored an impressive 28 for their sultry sumba. “You are like a shattering sex machine,” said judge Bruno Tonioli, who gave the couple a perfect score of 10. “You had so much fire down below, it was like a volcano!” he added. Carrie Ann Inaba also praised J.R. on his hotness! “Hay papi muy caliente,” she said. “That is the way to dance that samba.”
As for Ricki Lake, she stumbled quite a bit last night for Ricki Lake standards, though she still managed to receive a good score of 24 for her foxtrot. Bruno said it best when he stated: “You can’t be a genius every week.”
Landing at the bottom of the scoreboard for the second week in a row was fashion guru Carson Kressley who may or may not have to worry about what to wear next week on the show! Carson earned a poor 19 out of 30 points with Bruno calling the jive routine from he and partner Anna Trebunskaya a “crowning achievement in madness.” Ouch!

TELL US – WHO SHOULD GET THE BOOT? IS IT CARSON’S TIME TO GO?
Last night’s Real Housewives of New Jersey reunion from hell gave me stress-induced anxiety, like for real! I could not guzzle the wine fast enough! The rage was palpable and the ladies were down right dirty. This made RHONY’s reunion seem almost tolerable. Did I just type that?!
First of all, does anyone remember that notorious website Socialite Rank? Well, I wish we had a website devoted to Housewives Ranking, called of course, Housewives Rank, because if we did TheCaroline and Teresa would be neck and neck for bottom of the heap after last night’s dreadful performance! Melissa had her moments of dirty as well, and for the most part Kathy kept her hands clean and imagined beautiful beaches and escape. Me too, Kath!
*Simple Disclaimer – I am a woman without a housewife – I play no favorites. I participate in equal opportunity snarking. All the ladies are ridiculous to a degree (yes, some more than others) and I like to spread the snark around!

The latest is Kelsey, 56, has been taking some shots at his ex-wife during a press tour to promote his new Starz show Boss. In an interview with Australia’s “Sunrise,” Kelsey revealed that Camille’s casting on the RHOBH was one of the last kind things he did for her. Oh yes he went there!
“In my mind [RHOBH] was my parting gift to her,” said Kelsey. “It was a very difficult marriage and a very difficult decade. I thought, ‘So long, here’s a present for you.’”
The Huffington Post is reporting that Kelsey taped a one-hour exclusive sitdown interview with Piers Morgan during which he spoke about what went wrong with his marriage.
“Everyone wanted the interview, but Piers persuaded the private Kelsey to sit with him and discuss everything from his new wife, his custody fight and how he believes his ex-wife was more interested in fame and fortune than him,” reveals a source. At one point, Kelsey reportedly told Piers: “Camille married ‘Frasier,’ not me.” No word yet on when this interview will air.
TMZ is also reporting that Kelsey now wants a judge to impose a gag order on Camille. The reason? Well Camille stepped out with their son last week during which TMZ camera men asked her which activities she enjoys doing with her kids. Camille then instructed her son Jude to answer the question and he replied, “Play.” Kelsey reportedly was unhappy with the situation and would like a family judge to prevent Camille from exposing their kids to media cameras in the future.
Taylor once again spent the weekend in Texas, and once again she spent some time with Most Eligible Dallas star Matt Nordgren. Except this time around, there is photographic evidence! The two were pictured together at the Cattle Barron’s Ball on Saturday night. Even better, Matt’s BFF and costar Courtney Kerr was also at the event with a reporter tweeting that she looked “appalled.”
Matt is however still denying there is anything romantic going on between the two. By the way Matt is 29 while Taylor is 40. Whatever the case, the finale of Most Eligible Dallas airs tonight on Bravo immediately following the new episode of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills at 9/8c.
Taylor has also been tweeting lately mostly just to thank fans for their support. She tweeted on Oct. 10: “Many thanks for the supportive tweets, letters and emails. My heart goes out to those of you who have shared your experiences with me.” She also tweeted Sunday night: “My lil’ girl is twirling and singing in the mirror. Makes me smile to see her happy and playful.”
And just moments ago, Taylor appeared on KTLA-TV in Los Angeles during which she stated that doing RHOBH actually saved her life. Taylor has alleged Russell was physically abusive to her and has released photos of herself in a hospital with a black eye.
“If cameras were not in my life, there’s a good chance I wouldn’t be sitting here today,” said Taylor adding that she could have been the victim of a murder or murder-suicide. “I’m thankful to be here especially for my daughter… Imagine if she had two less parents instead of one,” added Taylor.
The new photos of Taylor Armstrong below!
Watch What Happens Live – The guests will be none other than current non-couple Matt Nordgren and Courtney Kerr.
Moving on to tonight’s all new episode of the RHOBH during which the Richard sisters continue to be mean girls take on newbie Brandi Glanville! On the 7th episode this season titled “Game Night Gone Wild!” the ladies’ lighthearted game night transforms into a trash-and-clash battle royal. While Kim and Kyle at long last end up on the same side, Brandi finds herself with nary an ally. Later, the drama continues to heat up at Camille’s charity luncheon. A preview clip is below!

It appears there are some pretty nasty rumors swirling about one of the ladies of Basketball Wives LA, and it seems VH1′s editing department is performing quite the cover-up should the accusations prove to be true. And if the rumors aren’t true, you can always sue the source…just ask Miami’s Evelyn Lozada!
Um, perhaps the apology we saw Draya Michele give Laura Govan on last week’s episode of Basketball Wives LA may not have been for simply talking some smack years ago. Reach Around Radio exclusively reports that Draya may have gotten a little too close with Laura’s baby daddy 4x Gilbert Arenas…at the stadium no less. Apparently VH1 used it’s editing magic to make it appear Draya was saying she was sorry for gossiping about Laura and her children when she she was actually apologizing for bopping Laura’s man.
Reach Around Radio reports Gilbert is not denying these allegations. In fact, he claims that he even passed off Draya to a couple of friends, including Deshawn Stevenson. Classy. The radio hosts reveal that Gilbert may even be airing this dirty laundry on the reunion. If this story is true, you have to wonder why VH1 is skewing the program to make Draya seem like the ultimate victim. I am in no way saying that the women have any right to gang up on or bully any other cast mate. However, if Draya is guilty of diddling one of the other lady’s meal tickets, it’s a bit more understandable why she would be negatively on their radar. If this story is false, Draya may have quite the defamation claim…
And speaking of lawsuits, Miami Basketball Wife football fiancee Evelyn Lozada is suing internet site Media Take Out for publishing a story in September which questioned her fidelity to fiancee Chad Ochocinco. Well, it didn’t actually question her fidelity…it flat out called her a cheater. The article, entitled “Evelyn Lozada from the Basketball Wives was CREEPING… with one of Chad’s BALLER FRIENDS!!! (Explosive Details),” accused the reality starlet of sleeping with her man’s best friend (and fellow VH1 media whore darling) Terrell Owens.
Evelyn’s lawsuit alleges that over 250,000 readers viewed the article causing her “emotion distress” (huh?) and damaging her reputation as both a career woman and a public figure/”television personality.” Evelyn is seeking $15,000 in damages, as well as additional money for court costs and interest. The article is still available on the site, but now simply reads, “As a courtesy to Evelyn, we have removed this article.” Well wasn’t that kind of them…
A new episode of Basketball Wives: L.A. airs tonight at 8PM ET on VH1.
WHAT DO YOU THINK ABOUT THE ACCUSATIONS AGAINST DRAYA? DOES THIS CHANGE YOUR OPINION OF HER ON THE SHOW? DO YOU THINK EVELYN HAS A CASE AGAINST MEDIA TAKEOUT OR IS THIS JUST AN ATTEMPT TO STAY RELEVANT?
