According to a bizarre report, Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Taylor Armstrong watched a video depicting abuse and taped the reaction for her personal website.

Radar Online is reporting that Taylor, who has alleged she was abused by now deceased husband Russell Armstrong, recently watched the viral video of a Texas judge beating his cerebal palsy- stricken daughter for illegally downloading music on the Internet, all while filming her reaction.

The reason? According to sources, Taylor was simply viewing the video to confront her fears about abuse. Taylor has claimed she grew up in an abusive household. Her psychiatrist, Dr. Charles Sophy, was reportedly with her while she viewed the video.

A source goes on to explain why Taylor decided to tape her reaction. “Taylor wanted to confront her fears about domestic violence, and she had heard so much about the judge beating his daughter. She filmed it for it to be released on her website to educate women about domestic violence,” reveals a source.

“Taylor was absolutely gutted watching the video. She cried, and she got very, very angry. She saw herself in the judge’s daughter, vulnerable and unable to fight back. Taylor thought it took tremendous courage for Hillary to film the brutal beating, and to finally release it. Taylor kept saying that could have been my daughter Kennedy. Even though Russell never laid a hand on their daughter, there was no guarantee that if he had lived, he wouldn’t have done that,” adds the source.

Taylor reportedly plans on posting her reaction to the video on her website around the same time her book will be released. Taylor’s tell-all memoir Hiding From Reality, My Story of Love, Loss, and Finding The Courage Within, is slated to be released in February, 2012.

Allrighty, moving on to a recent interview given by Taylor in which she opens up about her struggles during the past year.

Talking to the Hollyscoop blog this week while she was doing some charity work, Taylor admits she has had a rough year. “We’re just continuing with our holiday tradition,” said Taylor. “Obviously things are different for us but at the same time you know really blessed to have a lot of support.”

Taylor was also asked about her behavior on the current season of the RHOBH which involves constantly lashing out at her costars. “This has been a really tough year for me,” Taylor says of her behavior. “And I think people are figuring out why, but at the same time that was my reality at the time and I’m certainly not proud of all of it but all I can do is move on.”

Despite everything, Taylor reveals she is trying to keep things positive for 5-year-old daughter Kennedy by “just letting her be a kid.” “We just went out and got our tree and we have the whole house decorated and just letting her be a kid,” she told Hollyscoop. “We’re going to have our family over and… being here it really helps me to remember to be thankful for all the support that we have.”

The Kardashian drama is never ending! The latest is a new report by Life & Style magazine which states Kris Humphries’ dad is considering writing a tell-all about the Kardashian family!

While Kris, 26, signed a confidentiality agreement as part of his wedding pre-nup to Kim Kardashian, none of his family members did, which allows them to spill whatever details they want about the Keeping Up With the Kardashians clan.

The latest issue of Life & Style claims, Kris’ father, William Humphries, expressed his interest in an explosive, blockbuster tell-all book. “I’d love to write a book,” he reportedly stated. “It’s important to him that Kris’ side of the story is out there,” notes a Humphries family friend.

“Kris has told his father everything,” reveals a Kardashian family friend. “They have no control over what William says,” the insider confirms. “And he has many stories to tell.” Another source says, “It’s Kim’s worst nightmare. The Kardashians have no control over what William says.” A rep for Kris, however, denies that any of the Humphries clan has plans to write a tell-all.

Life & Style adds that an expose would not only expose Kimmie, but her entire family. “Nothing gets in the way of business for them,” claims the Humphries insider. “Kris was just a pawn.”

So what kind of secrets could the Humphries spill about Kimmie? Sources state these could include bedroom secrets, Kim spending “six hours in hair and makeup throughout the day” as well as scandalous secrets about their reality shows! Sources close to Kris also reveal he believes Kim and her pimp mom Kris failed to disclose “all the sources of money she made from the wedding.”

Meanwhile, the current issue of Star magazine is reporting that Kimmie Kakes, who refused to return her wedding gifts despite the fact that her marriage only lasted 72 days, had good reason for her decision.

According to the mag, Kim has cashed most of the gifts she received at a luxury boutique in Hollywood in order to buy Rolex watches for her family! “Kim had never had the gifts delivered,” an insider reveals. “The store was still waiting for her to give them an address.”

Instead, Kim reportedly paid a visit to the boutique the week after she filed for divorce to inform them she didn’t want the gifts sent to her. “[Kris] told Kim from the beginning that he wanted her to return the wedding gifts to guests who bought them,” a source reveals. “But she totally ignored him and just went ahead and did this. He thinks it’s disgusting.”

Moving on to Barbara Walters, who is now bashing the Kardashian family after putting them on her list of the 10 Most Fascinating People of 2011.

In the interview, which was taped 25 days before Kim filed for divorce in October, Kim tells Barbara “Married life is good” when asked about her marriage. Poor Baba Wawa now feels the Kardashians can’t be trusted.

“It’s not that she lied — that was the first interview that we did, we did it in October,” Barbara revealed on The View yesterday.

However, Barbara was a tad upset as she stated pimpmomager for the Kardashian family, Kris Jenner, had promised her that nothing would happen between the time the interview was taped and the program’s airing. And as we all know, a lot has happened since including Kim’s divorce filing and Kourtney Kardashian’s pregnancy announcement.

“You cannot trust the Kardashians,” said Barbara. Ouch!

It gets even better as Barbara politely let the Kardashian clan know they have no talent during her interview with them. “You don’t really act; you don’t sing; you don’t dance,” said Barbara to the family. “You don’t have any — forgive me — any talent!”

The Kardashian’s defense? Their talent is “entertaining” people via their reality shows. Kim stated they’re “still entertaining” to the viewers who watch their shows, explaining that it’s actually “more of a challenge for you to go on a reality show, and get people to fall in love with you for being you.” Yes folks, apparently that takes talent!

Barbara also asked about the now infamous sex tape with Ray J a.k.a the main reason we know who the Kardashians are! When asked if it was a good thing, a stammering Kim responded, “I’ve made mistakes in my life for sure.” Pimpmomager Kris quickly came to her favorite daughter’s rescue adding: “It was devastating for the whole family. You cry yourself to sleep for a few nights, then you hire an attorney.” Sure it was!

There’s never a dull moment in Real Housewives of New Jersey land! I’m sure most of you heard of the Twittercation involving The View co-host Sherri Shepherd, Teresa Giudice and Melissa Gorga over the weekend.

It seems that Sherri and her husband were attending a party in New Jersey and who should show up but Melissa, hauling with her a buncha drama. Le sigh. And if you are wondering what kind of people get into an argument at a Christmas party, look no further than the hot-tempered ladies of RHONJ!

Sherri, rightfully annoyed that a peaceful evening was ruined by squabbling twelve-year-olds women, took to Twitter to complain about the nonsense. “Why am I at a party in Jersey with Sal & one of the New Jersey Housewives gets into an altercation w someone! This is surreal & a #hotmess,” Sherri admonished, via Twitter. Sherri initially believed Teresa was the hot mess in question, but Teresa immediately set her straight, Tweeting: “And no I was NOT at the Jersey party w/ @SherriEShepherd yest. I was in NYC w/my kids. She’s got her hot mess NJHousewives mixed up! ;) xx”

After realizing her error Sherri, tweeted her sorries. “Apology to @Teresa_Giudice … thought you were at the party. I swear you got a doppleganger [sic]! Just as well – the drama didn’t involve you!” Teresa sort of does have a doppelganger (assuming she knows what that is): her sister in law Melissa — who as it turns out was the hot mess in question! Oh dear.

It seems Melissa attended the get together with Kathy Wakile and some bickering occurred in the bathroom — wait didn’t this already happen at the Posche Fashion Show? Melissa instantly went on the defense over Sherri’s “hot mess” accusation and replied, “”No honey! Someone tried 2 pull a publicity stunt last night 2try & cause drama, I was upset they did that!” Melissa claims she was jut an innocent bystander victimized by fame seeking harlots. uh huh. Again, haven’t we heard this story before (ahem… Posche Fashion Show)?

Speaking to the Huffington Post, Melissa explains her side of the story and insists it was all nonsense stirred up by a random party guest looking for a spot on RHONJ. “Someone tried to cause a fake fight to get attention because they are trying to be on the new ‘Housewives.’ ”

“Someone pretended that they overheard me and Kathy talking about a girl in the bathroom that is trying to get on the next season,” Melissa recounts. “I knew it was B.S. because we didn’t talk about anyone in the bathroom. So I called them out on it right away.”

“The girl admitted it the next day,” Melissa added. “It was so stupid they were just trying to get attention.” Richie Wakile summed up the incident as, “Fake ass people out there! & you know who you are bitches!”

No word on who the “girl” is, but I’m guessing there is a lot more to this story than meets the eye — particularly with all the rumors swirling about Melissa as of late!

If you’re wondering if Melissa is tired of living “On Display” the answer is of course not! A fan tweeted her asking just that and she replied: “It comes with territory what I don’t like is the lying, everyone has an opinion I can’t get mad at that! Xo” Will the insanity never cease?

In other RHONJ news, Jacqueline Laurita is up to her Twitter antics again and this time she is admitting something we all suspected! Apparently her friendship with Melissa is not exactly what it’s portrayed to be! After giving Melissa a shout-out for producing payroll sheets to prove she was never a dancer, a fan asked Jacs about the nature of her relationship with her ex-bestfriend’s sister-in-law. Jacqueline Tweetplied: “Got friendly w/Mel bc I respect her as Ts fam.I like her.Shes always been nice2me.We dont talk&hangout like bffs.C her here&there”

My interpretation: Jacqueline got angry at Teresa and started buddy-ing up with Melissa to make Teresa angry.

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.

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.
