Tareq Salahi is now revealing his devastation a day after falsely reporting his wife Michaele Salahi was missing and kidnapped.

Many doubted the latest publicity stunt drama from the former Real Housewives of DC stars for good reason. Hours after Tareq contacted TMZ to give them the exclusive, cops revealed Michaele had NOT been kidnapped and a rep for the band Journey confirmed Michaele had indeed run off with the guitarist Neal Schon.

Tareq Sources now tell TMZ he is completely “devastated” over losing his wife to Neal, whom he apparently considered a trusted friend. “Sources” reveal Tareq considered Neal and his band members “best friends.” In fact, the band reportedly came to his winery recently in Virginia and played for free while even staying with Tareq and Michaele.

It gets even better as just two weeks ago, Tareq and Michaele went to a Journey concert in Virginia and hung out backstage with Neal and a woman named Ava, whom Tareq believes is Neal’s wife. Yikes.

TMZ adds that Tareq has been crying hysterically, saying his life is over because Michaele is all he lived for.

And just moments ago TMZ broke the news that Michaele’s affair with Neal has been going on for over 2 years with a source stating she was bragging about the “wild sex” she had with the Journey rocker before she ran off with him.

Michaele Sources extremely close to Michaele reveal she and Neal first met in 1998 while she was engaged to Tareq. And despite the instant attraction the two felt, they managed to restrain themselves at first. However things came to a head in 2009 when the relationship turned sexual while Michaele was still married.

The two managed to keep the 2-year affair a secret until Michaele decided it was time to officially ditch Tareq. Michaele has reportedly described her relationship with Neal as an “intimate and passionate relationship.” In addition to crying hysterically, Tareq is also reportedly feeling “betrayed.”

So to sum this up for ya, while Tareq went to the media crying yesterday that Michaele had been kidnapped, she was busy hooking up with Neal in Tennessee, before bouncing to the next Journey concert in Memphis.

It’s hard to determine if this is a full on publicity stunt because, you know, it involves the Salahis. I am however inclined to believe Michaele did in fact run off with Neal as I doubt Neal would be in on these types of shenanigans. Now did Tareq truly believe his wife was kidnapped? That I highly doubt!

TELL US – DO YOU THINK THIS WAS ONE GIANT PUBLICITY STUNT? IF SO, WAS IT THEIR WORST BEST ONE YET?

Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned – by reality TV!

Kate Gosselin, soon-to-be former star of TLC’s Kate Plus 8, is spitting mad after ex-husband and former co-star, Jon Gosselin called her out on her perpetual quest for C-List celebritydom. Slamming Kate’s aspirations to be the next Kris Jenner, Jon advised: “Reality television is not a career. Get back to normal life, simple life, provide for your family, and go from there.”

Well Kate isn’t willing to retire retaliated, of course, by calling out Jon’s parenting – even though hers basically consists of hiring a bevy of nannies while she works out, tans, and buys $50,000K two-seater sports cars. During a Today Show interview with Matt Lauer, Kate remarked: “It’s a situation where Jon may be accepting of mediocre for his kids by working a regular job, but I want the best for my kids and to give them the best opportunity.”

Kate continued to deride Jon’s aspirations of a normal childhood for his children by stating: “It would have to be the right [show], but the best opportunity would be me continuing in TV for my kids,” she said. “If the right thing came along, I’m sure you will see my kids at some point.” As for the end of their her show, Kate wants everyone to know she’s not just using her children for money and attention; it’s her career.

“There’s fear because this has been the start of my career and my job and how I’ve been providing for my kids for six years.” What she really means to say is this is how TLC has been providing for her kids for six years!

Kate confirmed: “I think at this point, the best opportunity for all of us would be me continuing on TV as a way to provide for my kids. Something that’s exciting and challenging for me has been TV, and I wouldn’t be opposed to it. I’m sure you will see my kids again at some point.”

After Kate’s snarking received backlash from the public, she is now recanting her statements, claiming Jon isn’t so bad after all – it’s just his career choice that is. Kate Tweeted: “2clarify re ‘mediocre’ – I meant this job is not a career acc 2 jon but tv is 4 me & is hard but will prov best opps 4 my kids vs nursing!” If you can decipher the Twit-diction.

Well a fan snapped back, wondering if TV was the new qualifier for a exceptional parenting: “So, because my husband and I aren’t on tv constantly like @Kateplusmy8 , we’re only providing a “mediocre” life for our daughter?” Prompting Kate to reply: “That’s not wut I said @all. Was responding 2jons comment only re ME getting a ‘normal’ job–which would not work$ bc I hav 8!” She needs television to feed and clothe her 8 children!

Don’t expect Kate to go away anytime soon, because remember TV is her J-O-B and her fans need her! “I feel sad for fans, because they’re devastated,” she explained to Matt Lauer. “They’re saying, you know, you’re the neighbor moving far away and we won’t see you again.”

But fret not as Kate promises she and her plus 8 will return! She also feels bad for fans who might be “devastated” over the show cancellation. “I feel sad for fans, because they’re devastated,” said Kate. “They’re saying, you know, you’re the neighbor moving far away and we won’t see you again.” Not delusional at all that Kate!

Thoughts on the latest Jon vs. Kate drama? Whose side are you on? Are you ready for Kate to retire or would you watch her on another TV show?

In today’s shocking news, the Bravo network has reportedly fired Jill Zarin, Alex McCord and Kelly Bensimon from the Real Housewives of New York City! WOW to the ZERS!

Gossip columnist Rob broke the news, tweeting minutes ago: “Breaking #RHONY Jill, Alex and Kelly are gone insiders at Bravo tell me.” Cindy’s not fired???

Rob has a close relationship with a number of the RHONY housewives so he is a pretty credible source when it comes to RHONY news. We will keep checking for more updates and bring you more news the minute it becomes available!

UPDATE - The Huffington Post (the blog Rob works for) is now reporting that Bravo informed Jill, Alex and Kelly of the news this morning. The women reportedly had no idea they were being let go.

Sources confirm the trio will not be returning as fulltime cast members next season. Further confirming the news is the report that Countess Luann de Lesseps revealed yesterday in an interview that three new ladies will be added to the cast.

Another insider adds that Bravo told Jill, Alex & Kelly that they could possibly be reinstated next season if any of the new cast members don’t work out. While the article doesn’t mention Cindy, it was reported a while back that she was also being let go.

Pretty shocking move by Bravo as even though I’m no fan of the Jillousy, I don’t think firing her is the best way to go. Jill and Ramona Singer appear to be the two biggest stars of the show and bring a certain dynamic to the series. Love them or hate them. Alex’s firing is also a big surprise. Kelly’s? Not so much and very welcomed. As I stated previously, I believe letting Cindy and Kelly go, while bringing in three new housewives would have been best.

TELL US – THOUGHTS ON THIS NEWS? ARE YOU SHOCKED OR VERY SHOCKED? HAPPY WITH THE CHANGES?

UPDATE #2 – UsWeekly is now reporting Cindy Barshop was also fired! As for why Jill was fired, sources tell the mag Bravo got “sick of her being a diva.” So now, the only remaining housewives are Ramona, Sonja, and Countess LuAnn. The source however adds that Ramona, who is currently negotiating her new contract, might end up getting the axe if she can’t reach a deal with Bravo. “If they can’t agree, she will be off the show as well,” says the source.

For the time being, none of the fired housewives have yet to confirm the news. In fact Jill and Alex, who normally tweet up a storm all through the day, have been very quite for the last couple hours.

UPDATE #3 – All of the fired ladies parties reported to have been fired are now denying the news citing they have yet to hear it from Bravo. Jill rep tells PEOPLE: “Jill is still in discussions with Bravo for season 5 and no final decisions have been made.” Alex also tweeted minutes ago: “Speaking for myself only, there is no decision yet whether I’m in or out of #RHONY -Nothing’s finalized, though I’d like to do another year.” All interesting. Denial or are they being honest?

In today’s shocking news, it turns out Jersey Shore’s resident dysfunctional couple Ronnie and Sammi are still going strong months after getting back together, you know, for the umpteenth time!

If you recall, the two called it quits back in January only to reunite while MTV filmed the 4th season in Italy back in May. Fast forward to today and Sammi reveals all is still well between the two.

“We’re going strong,” Sammi told the HollywoodLife blog at the Bebe runway show on Sept. 12. She also adds that now that she and Ronnie are back home from Seaside and working on their relationship away from the cameras, she is open to doing more seasons of the Jersey Shore! The cast just finished filming season 5 a few weeks ago.

“I’d love for as many ‘Jersey Shores’ that come, I would love to continue to do it, ” said Sammi also admitting she wouldn’t mind going overseas again to film because she “loves to travel.”

In other news, just days after her fellow meatball Snooki showed off her new tats, Deena Cortese is now doing the same! The show’s resident hot mess blast in a glass reveals she spent the weekend of August 20 getting a very personal saying inked on both of her feet: “Tell me I can’t and I’ll show you I can.”

“I did it because I like the saying,” Deena, 24, told Us Weekly. “I like proving people wrong.” She adds that the tats took over two hours to complete.

Last night the ninety minute premiere of Survivor: South Pacific aired on CBS. Two former Survivor staples and two-time previous game players Ozzy Lusth and Coach Wade are back to square off with the newbie castaways on an episode aptly titled “I Need Redemption.”

Right off the bat, we meet John “Cochran” Cochran who has watched every season of the show, and even wrote a prize winning paper on it while in law school at Harvard. Native American Elyse isn’t much into the outdoors, but she’s hoping her heritage will work to her advantage, and then there’s Rick a rancher from the Midwest. Stacey is a funeral director and mortician who promises to be nosy and while pretending to play nice. Russell Hantz’s (a former Survivor with multiple games under his belt) nephew Brandon likens himself to Hitler’s nephew and vows to change the perception of his family’s name. Maybe not the most accurate of comparisons, but he doesn’t want his fellow castaways to know that he shares the blood of a Survivor competitor who wouldn’t have won any popularity contests.

A new winner was crowned last night on the finale of CBS’ Big Brother 13. Following a season filled with many twists and turns, the final two came down to a newbie vs. a veteran.

In the end returning veteran Rachel Reilly, a 27-year-old waitress, emerged the winner, leaving the game with both her man and $500,000! Rachel, who won the final HOH thus deciding whom she wanted to go up against, beat runner up Porsche Briggs, 23, in a very close vote.

Rachel ultimately won by a vote of 4 – 3. Shelly Moore ended up being the deciding vote as both Porsche’s and Rachel’s alliances remained loyal to them until the end. But don’t feel too badly for Porsche as she also left the game $50,o00 richer.

America’s Favorite Houseguest was also revealed and CBS might as well rename this the Jeff Schroeder award as the returning vet took home the $25,000 prize for the second time.

As for Rachel, she is planning to use her winnings to plan her wedding and her future together with her fiance Brendon Villegas.

CBS also announced earlier this week that the show will return for a 14th season. Fingers crossed that it’s the highly anticipated return of the all-star season!

Almost a month after her estranged husband Russell Armstrong committed suicide, Taylor Armstrong is now breaking her silence in her first interview since the tragedy.

Entertainment Tonight, which also released the first and only photos of Taylor’s physical abuse days ago, snagged the first exclusive interview with the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star.

It had been reported that Taylor, 40, was angling to give her first interview to Barbara Walters but RadarOnline is now reporting that interview didn’t pan out as Taylor reportedly had too many demands for the veteran journalist.

“Taylor had a list of demands that Walters just wasn’t willing to go along with. Taylor didn’t want to be grilled about her participation on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills possibly contributing to Russell’s suicide,” a source close to the situation reveals. “She didn’t want to be put on the hot seat regarding her spending habits. In the end, Entertainment Tonight was able to come to an agreement with Taylor that she was extremely comfortable with.”

Taylor’s interview with ET will air next Tuesday on September 20. According to ET, Taylor will open up to Nancy O’Dell about the bruises that she says were caused by her late husband. A source close to Taylor states that she underwent Lasik eye surgery on July 5. And just days later, the source claims she was hit by Russell so hard that her corneal flap was dislocated.

Taylor was not seen in public for the remainder of July as her injuries healed. Her first public appearance after that was on August 1, at a press tour promoting season two of the RHOBH.

ET is also reporting that when Russell, 47, showed up at the hospital, Taylor claimed she suffered the injuries when she was kicked in face by their 5-year-old daughter Kennedy. Therefore, the attending doctor did not report any abuse.

It’s more than likely Taylor was paid for the interview and/or the abuse photos. And speaking of those abuse photos, Russell’s sister Laurie Kelsoe is now speaking out about them and against Taylor.

“I think it’s bullsh*t,” Laurie tells the RumorFix about the photos which she admits she has yet to see. Laurie goes on to question Taylor’s intentions. “Why didn’t she file a police report?” Laurie asks. “I think she needs to let it rest — I mean the poor guy’s dead!”
