By the time you read this article, there’s a good chance Bruce Jenner might or might not still be in time out from his wife — pimpmomager Kris Jenner!
In what can only be described as a open mouth insert foot moment, Bruce made a startling revelation in a new interview with OK! Magazine. What exactly did he reveal? Oh just that he found out about his step daughter, Kim Kardashian’sdivorce through the media. Yikes. Surely this cannot help Kim’s tanking reputation.
“Actually, I found out she was getting divorced by hearing about it on the news and stuff,” Bruce revealed to OK!. “I was like, the last to know. But I could hear telephone conversations in other rooms happening and I knew something was up but I didn’t know it was that bad until after.”
“I’m smart enough to stay out of all those things,” Bruce explained. “I have given them advice through out the years, but in this particular case I kept my mouth shut. I didn’t want to… you don’t get involved in love. Just hope for the best.”
Bruce goes on to reveal his advice for Kimmie: “You’re going to take a lot of heat for this. Just continue to be the same good person you’ve always been.’ And I think she has and I said, that’s about all you can do right now.” Good person???
There seems to be a trend here asKris Humphries also revealed last October that he found out about the divorce filing through TMZ.
And in a separate interview, Bruce also reveals he could care less about whether his daughters — Kendall, 16, and Kylie, 14 — go to college!
“If they want to go to college, certainly, I think it’s a good idea. But I’m not the advocate of, ‘You’ve got to go to college!’” Bruce said to UsWeekly. “I think by the time they graduate from high school, they will probably be in a position to go right to working.” And by working, he probably means appearing on a E! spinoff!
Bruce also reveals he is banking on Kendall making it big as a supermodel! “She’ll probably have a career by the time she’s out of high school,” he said. “If that’s what she wants to do, that’s good. I don’t know if college is going to be that important for her.”
Moving on to Kimmie Kakes, who continues to prove she is a vapid shallow individual with very little depth to her!
Perhaps in her attempt to keep up with the ton of negative press she’s been receiving lately, and I mean TON, Kim was pictured Tuesday in Los Angeles looking at Google Alerts of herself on her Blackberry phone.
In case you’re wondering what the heck a ‘Google Alert’ is, it’s a news service you sign up for which alerts you (typically via email) when an article pops up on the Internet about a subject you subscribed to. It’s typically used by media outlets, Reality Tea included, to get the latest updates about the subjects, in other words, the celebrities they cover.
In a recent interview with Necolebitchie.com, Kimbella opens up on her first season in the madness that is Love & Hip Hop. She discusses her infamous first episode, her tumultuous childhood, an aspiring singing career (no shocker there given the premise of the show) and how hard it is to be so darn nice. An excerpt of that interview is below.
So this is your first season on L&HH, what are your thoughts thus far?
Of course it wasn’t what I expected. I don’t think there was any way I really could’ve been prepared for it but I’m really happy. But I do wish I wasn’t as nice as I was. I wish I would’ve shown my more aggressive side.
Your more aggressive side? You’ve been involved in a few conflicts already…
Yes but that’s what I mean. People take my kindness for weakness. I don’t judge anybody. Basically people pre-judge me. And watching it, I realize I should’ve had my guard up with each individual. I’m not as nice as they made me seem. Anything that comes my way, I do not back down. I hold my own. I don’t care who you are, I’m gonna fight for who I am, take it or leave it. Some of the girls wanted to judge me and they didn’t know me and it’s pitiful.
Ok, let’s go back to your first episode. You came to a party thrown by Emily and sort of dropped a bomb that you’d previously been involved with Fabolous. Whose idea was it to tell her?
I came in there wanting to tell her, this was my second time seeing Emily [Bustamante]. I knew she knew, I’d heard that she knew. So I wanted to tell her and just get it out in the open before someone else brought it up. I wanted her to hear it from me. And the thing is, what they don’t show you is Emily came to me later and said, ‘Thank you for telling me because I saw your name in his phone and I was gonna ask you about it.’
I understand you wanting to tell her directly, but why then? Why at the party in front of everyone?
Because it didn’t matter where or when I told her. Everyone knew what this guy was doing to her. And even if I’d taken her to the bathroom, or pulled her aside, she still would’ve come back and told everybody at that table anyway.
So after the fight, Emily thanked you for telling her, what was the relationship between yourself and Chrissy?
Chrissy [Lampkin] wasn’t around. She stopped production for 3 weeks because she didn’t want to tape with me. So there was absolutely no relationship.
In [one] episode you allude to childhood abuse, can you elaborate on that?
Basically it was more neglect than anything. I had to raise myself and teach myself everything and some of the decisions I make as an adult are because of this. My mom was always off running after my dad, trying to make that relationship work. And it wasn’t healthy. My dad abused her. He had other children on her. So it was just an unhealthy situation all around.
What’s your relationship like with her now?
It’s hard. My mom is a unique individual. I want things to get better but it’s going to take time.
Where you want to go outside of the show?
I’m gonna launch my pop career, I sing. Not like Erica Mena. I can really sing. I’m also developing a line of watches. As well as a clothing line. And of course I’m doing my ‘Feel Pretty’ shirts which will be available on my website. My goal is to grow the brand. And eventually I’ll probably start an agency for upcoming models. I want to teach them the right way to handle their careers. You don’t just model for the rest of your life. I just want to educate women. We need unity, not jealously and to help one another. It’s such a struggle out here.
Is she lying and just making all of these allegations up?
Of course. I’ve never met her before. She’s straight lying. It’s jealousy, envy, maybe she wants to be my a friend. But I know one thing, a real woman – which obviously she’s not – wouldn’t approach the situation like that. We’ve never been friends. I don’t know this girl.
So who’s idea was it for you to confront her at her birthday party?
The show set up us going to her party. We did have this little twitter situation, which was real. But I didn’t understand how she was going back and forth so quickly. You came to Miami apologizing and now you’re still talking about me? The whole thing just doesn’t make sense. What is it you’re trying to do?
Would you do another season?
If the money’s right. I have two kids that I have to support. And now that I’m a little wiser about what this process is really like, I’m going to need a lot of things. So renegotiating my contract isn’t going to be easy. They’re going to have to come with it.
I know you’re genuinely cool with Yandy [Smith] but are you friends with any of your other cast mates in real life?
No, it’s hard for me to trust anybody. Especially after seeing the show now. Somaya’s cool but I don’t trust anybody. I thought during taping that Emily and I were cool. She used to call my phone whatever, like we were cool and then I see the show and see how she really was and how she was running back to Chrissy. But it’s cool. I get it. This was a front for Chrissy. So now I just worry about me. I’m cordial with Olivia. We don’t have any beef. I’m pretty chill. I don’t have hate, no jealousy, I don’t bring problems to the table. When I come into the room it’s always somebody else who has the problem.
That’s interesting. What do you think the general first impression of you is?
It could be different with each person. If it’s someone who’s insecure they’re gonna have a problem. I’m a pretty girl that walks in the room and holds it down for herself and if you’re insecure, then you’re gonna have a problem.
Anything else you want us to know?
I’m going to write a book and everything else I have to say will be in there.
Hmm… makes me wonder if she’ll be back next season if she is going to make some demands while negotiating her contract. I guess time will tell! While I certainly wasn’t surprised to hear that there is no love lost between Kimbella and Chrissy, it’s nice to know that not all of the friendships or fighting is staged for the small screen. The ever present absent Somaya Reece also opened up to Vh1.com, speaking about her friendship with Kimbella.
Somaya discusses how Kimbella started off on the wrong foot but was able to endear herself to viewers. She explains, “I think people also started to see that Kimbella really was trying, she really made an effort to make things right on the show.” Giving credit where credit is due, Somaya touts Erica for helping that transformation, recalling, “I told Kimbella don’t be mad, whatever this girl did just helped you.” However Somaya believes, “[E]ven if Erica would not have done all that, I think people would have seen the genuine in [Kimbella].”
Dishing on her friend’s pregnancy announcement, Somaya reveals, “Oh, I know everything. But I’d rather she speak about it. It’s not my business, but she’s happy about everything.” She continues, stating the show’s mantra, “Relationships are always weird when you’re in this business, so that episode with her talking about Juelz [Santana], I mean, she’s just a really sweet person but she’s strong, she’s tough. I just don’t wanna speak for her.”
No doubt both ladies will be doing plenty of talking at the upcoming reunion! And speaking of, below is a picture Somaya tweeted of herself during filming of the reunion. Glad to know VH1 didn’t edit her out of that!

Previously on Top Chef: Beverly gets sent home and Charlize Theron was awesome and beautiful.
We return to Top Chef:Texas with the chefs in the stew room going over Beverly‘s departure. Grayson talking-heads that she’ll miss her while the other chefs are either hiding their feelings or just don’t seem to care.
All of a sudden an angel walks in, a.k.a. Charlize Theron, and she thanks the chefs and calls herself a “huge nerd.” No, Charlize, people currently on their 98th consecutive hour of playing Skyrim while on a Mountain Dew drip are huge nerds. You are a pretty actress.
With the stew room properly blessed, we move on to the rest of the episode and the quick fire challenge, this time being judged by Padma, Emeril Lagasse and Cat Cora, who also has a new Bravo show coming up soon, Around The World In 80 Plates (Bravo doing cross-promotion, SHOCKING!!)

Next month marks The Amazing Race‘s 20th season as the ultimate competition reality show! Eleven new teams will travel around the globe to 22 cities and nearly 400,000 miles in the hopes of winning the $1 million dollar grand prize!
Among some of the crazy challenges the teams will face is skydiving in Argentina, training with Masai warriors in Tanzania and racing through Africa’s “Garden of Eden.” The teams will also embark on a culinary tour of Italy (color me jealous!) and visit King Ludwig’s quarters in the German castle that served as the inspiration for Sleeping Beauty’s castle in the infamous fairytale. Color me jealous, again!
Best known for her on-again, off-again relationship with co-star Ronnie, Jersey Shore‘s Sammi Sweetheart also wants the world to know she’s just a regular gal. With a lot of money from a reality show. And a perfume. You know, like us normal girls.
In an interview with Naughty But Nice Rob, Sammi says that despite the show’s massive success she is still the same, proclaiming “I am just myself and I like being me. I am still doing the same things that I was doing prior to the show. I am just me.”
When asked about how her more famous co-stars were doing, she kept it nice: “I don’t know if the show changed them. I think they look fabulous and they are doing great.”
Of her post-show plans, Sammi said she wanted most to return to school and finish her degree, telling Rob she has “one semester left.” She is quick to point out that despite their on-screen antics, there are brains amongst the crew: “What’s cool is Vinnyhas his degree, but most of us went to college, even though no one knows that. We all are very smart in our own way.”
While I don’t think we’ll be seeing any of the Jersey Shore discussing economic policy over shots any time soon, there is something to Sammi’s statement that the gang certainly has smarts, especially when it comes to self-promotion. Sammi also revealed that Snooki went to college though it’s safe to assume she didn’t quite finish.
For example, the female cast members have all started to post no-makeup photos following the success of Sammi’s “makeunder” from xoJane.com. Snooki followed with her own no-makeup pics and now Deena Cortese has joined in, posting the following au naturel photos to her Twitter account this week. Those photos are below!
Snooki on the other hand is back to her usual and posted a few new bikini photos, hinting these might go on the cover of her new book. (Yes, Snooki is releasing another literary tome for the masses!) Those pics are also below!
A new episode of the Jersey Shore airs tonight on MTV (10/9c).

Taylor Armstrong is fond of saying that the ladies of Real Housewives of Beverly Hillsare like family and the cast is very close; providing an unwavering source of support to each other. New information is now claiming that couldn’t be farther from the truth. Surprised?
Sources have reported that most of the ladies do not spend time together away from filming and even worse, the ladies are starting to distance themselves from Taylor because they question the validity of her domestic abuse claims!
“Taylor told the other women about her abuse, but her stories didn’t match up,” a show insider disclosed to RadarOnline. “They thought that maybe she wasn’t telling the truth about how Russell [Armstrong] was treating her.”
“Each time Taylor would talk about the domestic abuse her story would change, and the ladies started to think that she wasn’t being honest about what was happening,” the insider describes.
“The other Housewives didn’t understand why Taylor would claim that Russell was abusing her but would stay with him and not take care of the problem,” the source said. “They all offered her help to get out of the situation, but she didn’t do anything.” Additionally, the details Taylor shared were always nebulous and inconsistent, which further raised red flags amongst her co-stars.
“Taylor’s stories about the abuse would change and she would amp up the details of the violence so the other women started to doubt any part of her story,” the source continues, explaining that the women believe Taylor exaggerated the claims to add drama to her own life.
And likely to remain integral to the show! Indeed, Taylor was able to garner her own storyline this season, as Bravo focused nearly every event around what was really happening in her troubled marriage. While Taylor may have gotten a lot of attention it wasn’t exactly positive.
Many fans suspected that Adrienne Maloofand Camille Grammer were doubtful about Taylor’s version of events, evident by their treatment of the matter during this season. Perhaps, the fans were right and the ladies suspected all along that something didn’t add up!
Describing joining the group as “traumatizing,” Brandi explains there is definitely an initiation to join the aging mean girls club. “You have to get jumped into the gang. It was like my initiation.”
“I’m really not a fighter,” Brandi clarified. “I mean I will fight back, but I don’t really start fights. It’s not in me to do it. But don’t mess with me, because I’m crazy.”
Brandi, who only knew Adrienne casually before joining the cast, admits she was totally surprised by the behavior of some of her co-stars. And she compares spending time with the ladies to babysitting! “This is worse than baby-sitting a bunch of kids!,” Brandi laughed. “it was just, like, cray-cray!”
Brandi found herself butting heads with Kyle the most out of all the ladies and the two still have a chaotic relationship. “It’s like going around in circles,” Brandi explained of her up and down friendship with Kyle. “It’s good one day and then it’s bad the next day.”
“Part of me really likes Kyle, and then part of me doesn’t,” Brandi admitted. “If you have that in you, to be that mean, that’s a little bit scary.” Brandi is still reeling from her experience at the infamous game night and she blames Kyle for most of what happened! “Kim can’t really take responsibility for her actions because she wasn’t well at the time,” Brandi explained. “Kyle doesn’t have a problem, so I can’t give her any excuses, except for just bad behavior.”
Regardless of how things ended with Kim this season, Brandi feels the two could “easily start over when she’s in a better space.” Brandi is also happy that Kim has gotten the help she needed. “I was really happy for her family. She’s a mom and everyone cares about her, so obviously there’s some good in her. She just has to get better.”
Brandi admits she doesn’t know how things are going for Kim post-rehab because she hasn’t talked to anyone that would know. She calls the situation a “touchy subject.”
As for some of the positives of joining the show, Brandi reveals she sees Camille “off camera” and also has a good friendship with Lisa Vanderpump, which seemed evident on their recent appearance on Watch What Happens Live!
Brandi claims one reason she really gets along with Lisa is that most of the other ladies are “really sensitive, and there’s no joking!” Where as Lisa and her both have their “minds in the gutter.” As for joking around with the brunette Richards sister, Brandi sums it up as, “I’m not messing with Kyle!” I couldn’t have said it better myself.
As for coming back for a second season, Brandi isn’t committing just yet. “I’m kind of weighing my options right now and deciding if this is the right place for me to be.” You can catch Brandi’s full interview in the video below!

On last night’s Teen Mom, emotions, not rational thought, reigned supreme. I’m sure you’re thinking, ‘what else is new?’
Corey is working to secure a better job as a coal miner. He and Leah go to look at a piece of land where they could put a nicer trailer — it’s closer to town and the schools will better for the girls. Leah begins to look online for a new mobile home. Is Leah wearing a wig? Leah is excited to be a coal miner’s wife, especially due to better insurance and a closer proximity to Ali’s doctor.
Kailyn and Jo fought previously about Isaac’s child support and she is patiently waiting for his first payment. After a quick check of the mail, she receives a petition from Jo about why he shouldn’t be asked to pay that much support. She fills in poor Isaac on the discontent between she and his father, reading the petition to the toddler and explaining her side of things. I fully realize that the one-year-old has no clue what she is talking about, but still, I don’t think she needs to get into the habit of bashing Jo to his son.
