On last night’s Real Housewives of Atlanta the ladies don’t disappoint. Cynthia Bailey opens her modeling agency, while Kandi Burruss consults with a country star. Sheree Whitfield and Phaedra Parks part ways professionally and Kim Zolciak is movin’ on up, Jefferson’s style. Nene Leakes also makes an appearance.
The episode begins as Sheree comes to Phaedra’s office to discuss her child support case. Phaedra feels that the hearing went very well, while Sheree is concerned that her case is flailing. Phaedra tries to explain the law to her client and defends her representation to a doubtful Sheree. Sheree thinks that the pair was blindsided in court, and they squabble about when the retainer was paid. Phaedra doesn’t want this case to come between her and her friend, so the ladies decide to end their business relationship with Phaedra referring Sheree to a different attorney. The duo part ways amicably (for now), with Sheree wishing her two-day lawyer had accomplished more and Phaedra wondering what kind of service her friend expects after hiring her twenty-four hours (give or take) in advance. WWJJD? (Judge Judy…in case you were wondering!)

Speaking to Star magazine, Russell’s ex-wife Barbara Fredrickson, and his former fiancé Milette Fields, both accuse Taylor of being heartless and self-centered following his suicide. Barbara and Millette (both have kids with Russell — Aiden, 14, and Griffin, 11) say Taylor couldn’t be bothered to break the news of Russell’s passing in person.
“She never called us to say he passed away,” Barbara tells Star. “She could have said, ‘Before this hits the news, this is what happened.’ I would have done that, but she didn’t.”
They also claim Taylor failed to call her estranged husband’s mother to offer her condolences. “She e-mailed Russell’s nephew to ask his mom to call her,” Barbara reveals. “She never said, ‘We all need to be together as a family.’ That’s really odd behavior.”
However, the biggest issue the ladies have with Taylor is their claim that she is denying their sons access to Russell’s legacy. “Since his death, Taylor has made things very difficult,” explains Barbara to Star. “We’ve asked about a trust or a will, but she won’t tell us. We’ve had to hire lawyers to get answers.” Millete adds, “Nothing has been given to our sons — not even a T-shirt, a tie, or a family photo.”
Another issue is Taylor’s tell-all book, set to be released in February, which will include her allegations of abuse at the hands of Russell. “Enough is enough! Let the children mourn and remember their father in a good light,” fumes Barbara. “Shame on her for profiting from her husband’s tragic death.”
While neither Bravo nor Kim has yet to comment on the rehab stint, Kyle told E! Online, “She’s doing very well, thank you,” during a recent event. “That’s all I’m going to say. She’s doing fantastic,” added Kyle.
Best wishes to Kim. Reports have stated her rehab stint will be for 30 days. She is also expected to be released around the same time Bravo plans to film the RHOBH reunion. Some are now questioning whether Kim should even be allowed to participate in the reunion due to the high level of drama always involved.
Moving on to tonight’s all new episode of the RHOBH. On the 16th episode of the season (how many episodes are there this season???) titled “Uninvited,” when Taylor’s husband threatens to sue Camille, ripple effects from the action impact all the housewives and could mean they’ll exclude Taylor from Kyle’s annual white party.
The episode airs tonight on Bravo (9/8c) and preview clip below!

According to a new report by In Touch Weekly magazine, Kim, 31, has been miserable since the public turned on her for filing for divorce — after 72 days of marriage — and now decided to take out all her misery on sister Khloe, 27.
While Khloe has been reportedly trying to help Kim cope, what she is getting in return from Kim are ugly verbal assaults. Kim’s feud with Khloe reportedly stems from jealousy because she cannot handle the fact that Khloe is happily married to Lamar Odomwhile her own marriage to her NBA player failed.
“Kim feels like her life is falling apart and she’s taking a lot out on Khloe,” a Kardashian insider tells In Touch Weekly. And what better way to hurt Khloe than to make fun of her appearance — something Khloe is reportedly sensitive about. “Kim told Khloe that Lamar is going to cheat on her if she keeps gaining weight,” reveals an insider.
In addition to that, Kim has also called Khloe “fat” to her face on more than one occasion while telling her she wouldn’t be famous if it wasn’t for Kim. And Kim wouldn’t be famous if it wasn’t for Ray J’s urine!
The insider insists that the recent fight on Kourtney and Kim Take New York was totally real, and that the two sisters “didn’t speak for weeks” as a result. During that fight, Kim called Khloe an “evil, ugly little troll,” though she later tweeted while the episode aired: “I’m sorry, KoKo! You know I love you soooo much! The things sisters do and say to each other.”
Khloe is now said to be firing back at Kimmie calling her a “bitch” at the recent Z100′s Jingle Ball concert in NYC when someone brought up her name.
In other Kardashian news, the famewhoring family has released their official 2011 Kardashian Christmas card in 3D today! Because, you know, we were all patiently waiting for it.
“Here it is!” blogged Kimmie this morning. “It was shot by the amazing Nick Saglimbeni and there’s a special 3D version that you can view with 3D glasses. What do you guys think?”
“I love our family Christmas cards shoots and I think this one looks amazing!” added Kim. We’ll let you be the judge of that. Photos from the Christmas card are below! Do they even send these Christmas cards out? Or is it just to garner publicity?

Heather and husbandTerry Dubrow have four kids together: twins Nicholas and Maximillia, 8, Katarina, 5, and Collette, 10 months. Despite her husband’s profession, Heather boasts in her Bravo bio that she has “never had plastic surgery” other than Botox and filler. Not quite sure we’re buying that!

TELL US – EXCITED ABOUT THE NEW SEASON? THOUGHTS ON THE STORYLINES?
If you recall, Teresa and husband Joe Giudice shocked viewers back in 2010 when it was revealed that they filed bankruptcy to the tune of $11 million in debt. Shortly afterwards, the two were accused of bankruptcy fraud by their trustee John Sywilok, who accused them of concealing assets and hiding income. By the way, concealing assets just happens to be a federal crime.
In a move to likely avoid persecution, Joe first withdrew his bankruptcy bid back in September, after pleading the fifth amendment during questioning by the trustee.
Following Joe’s move the Giudices’ lawyer told PEOPLE magazine that Teresa would soon follow, stating she felt “vindicated” to be voluntarily paying her remaining debts rather than go to jail have them discharged in bankruptcy court.
The NJ Star-Ledger is reporting that in addition to withdrawing her bankruptcy, Teresa has also settled the lawsuit by the trustee by acknowledging that she wishes to resolve Sywilok’s proceedings against her “without the need for further inquiry or litigation, and without her making any further admissions.”
Teresa’s attorney Jim Kridel stated back in September that Teresa was now making enough money to pay off her debts, while also adding that most of the debt in the bankruptcy belonged to Joe. Safe to say the system won this go around.
In other RHONJ news, Tre’s sister-in-law Melissa Gorga recently revealed she is now selling T-shirts with some of her catch phrases written on them such as “Thank you Jesus” and “On Display.”
“We are selling a lot of “Thank you Jesus!” shirts of my website this week! Guess its for Christmas gifts! Send pics! Xo, melissagorga.co” tweeted Melissa last week. Pictures of those T-shirts are below!

Despite their very tumultuous relationship, a new report states Kailyn Lowry wants another baby with ex Jo Rivera!
Star Magazine is reporting that the Teen Mom star has decided ex Jo is the one for her. “She is still in love with Jo,” a source close to Kailyn reveals. “She thinks Jo is still in love with her too.”
Even worse, Kailyn, 19, doesn’t just want to rekindle the romance with her baby daddy but she actually wants to have a second child with him! The two are parents to 22-month-old Isaac. “She wants to wait until after she graduates,” the source reveals to Star. “But she wants another baby with Jo.” Yikes.
Kailyn’s lingering feelings for Jo are to blame for the demise of her relationship with former boyfriend, Jordan Wenner. According to sources all was going well between Kailyn and Jordan until Kailyn cheated on him with Jo. “Jo was spending time with her and their son, Isaac, and basically one thing led to another,” the source says. “Kailyn cheated on Jordan, and Jo cheated on his girlfriend, Vee.”
Soon after, Kailyn and Jordan broke up leading to a brief reconciliation between Kailyn and Jo. “When Kailyn and Jordan broke up, she and Jo got together again,” says the source adding that Kailyn is, however, feeling uncertain.
“Kailyn is a bit torn now,” the source reveals. “Jo plays games with her. But if Jo broke up with his girlfriend and then said he wanted to be with Kailyn, she’d do it.”
While Kailyn still has feelings for Jo, who has been shown being verbally abusive to her on the MTV hit show, sources say she is also motivated by Kailyn’s wish for her son to have a support system. “She wants Jo, Isaac and her to be a family,” the source says. “She never had a family like that growing up, and she wants that for her son.”

Ozzy won the first challenge of the finale which led to Rick being voted off by the tribe. Unfortunately for Ozzy, he failed to come through when it mattered the most as Sophie ended up winning the final challenge. Ozzy pleaded with Coach to force a tie, but the “honorable” Coach once again went back on his word by voting off Ozzy.
The jury members were obviously not pleased with the final 3, but somebody had to win. In the end, Sophie, a 22-year-old medical student from Willsboro, New York, was declared the ultimate winner of Survivor: South Pacific! Sophie received 6 of the 9 jury votes to beat Coach. Unfortunately for Albert, he failed to receive any votes.
Ozzy — who won eight Redemption Island challenges — was able to walk away with $100,000 as the season’s fan favorite!
“I think that right away, I started sizing people up. You saw me do it with [Brandon Hantz],” said Sophie after her win. “I think I had my finger on the pulse of the game the whole time and I tried to just figure out other people’s motivations and kind of worked within the framework of the game.”
During the live reunion show host Jeff Probst announced the 24th season of the show, titled Survivor: One World, which will begin airing in February. Jeff also teased a season with Brandon and his uncle/ultimate villain Russell Hantz! Now that would be something to watch no?

Just a month after being declared the champion ofDancing With The Stars, JR is now expecting his first child with girlfriend Diana Gonzalez-Jones. The two are expecting a girl next Spring.
“We found out just last week it’s a girl and we are over the moon,” JR tells PEOPLE. “Diana has a little baby bump now and it’s the cutest thing ever. With the holidays coming up, this is the biggest and best gift we could get.”
JR, 28, met Diana when he landed a role on All My Children in 2008. She was working as an assistant on the soap at the time. The two first became close friends, before deciding to take their relationship to the next level last year.
“We were so good as friends that romantically, we just clicked right away. There was no adjustment period,” Diana told PEOPLE earlier this year. “2011 has been full of a lot of surprises and opportunities and ultimately, a lot of blessings,” adds JR.
