The infamous Anna Bensoncontinues to live up to her infamy according to a shocking new report!
TMZ reports Anna, star of VH1′s Baseball Wives, actually threatened her costars with… wait for it… a 12-inch dildo.
Sources tell TMZ that during a recent filming, Anna — wife of former Mets pitcher Kris Benson — got into an argument with Cheri Knoblauch. Okay, not so strange. Things however took a turn for the cray-cray when Anna pulled out a stun gun and set it on a table in a threatening manner.
Okay, still sorta normal. Well, Anna then proceeded to get more creative when she yanked out a 12-inch dildo from her purse and started swinging it at others! So many questions, so little time.
TMZ adds that some of the show’s staffers are now threatening to quit over Anna’s insane behavior! The show’s executives have been forced to step in to try to contain Anna. Wonder if Anna has met Jackie Christie yet? Both ladies seem to have a lot in common!
Speaking of Baseball Wives, the series premiered last night on VH1. Wasn’t all too impressed as something about it was giving me the Real Housewives of Miami. Perhaps it will get better as the season moves along.
TELL US – THOUGHTS ON ANNA’S CRAY-CRAY BEHAVIOR? DID YOU WATCH THE PREMIERE? WHAT DID YOU THINK?
Today, Kris, 26, finally responded to Kim’s divorce filing by seeking an annulment from her. Kris wants to erase his quickie marriage on the grounds that Kim defrauded him into marrying her.
Sources close to Kris tell TMZ that Kris was not in on the alleged fraud, a.k.a. he did not stage the marriage for Kim’s reality show. The insiders reveal while Kris wanted and thought he had a genuine marriage, Kim was never really on board.
TMZ adds that this divorce is quickly getting nasty because Kris also wants Kim to pay his attorney’s fees.
Kim is, however, not wasting any time firing back at Kris, with Kim herself “sources” close to her insisting to TMZ that she really loved Kris and the marriage was legit, despite falling apart in just 72 days.
Kim is telling others she originally wanted an annulment and filed for divorce after being told it was her only legal option. Kim is also claiming Kris and her discussed annulling the marriage before she filed for divorce, but were advised there was no legitimate grounds for an annulment.
TMZ states that under California law, annulments are only granted with proof of impotency, incest, bigamy, unsound mind, force or fraud. Kris’s papers state that in the case he’s denied an annulment, he wants a legal separation – and not a divorce. However, some legal experts are stating it will be very difficult for Kris to prove fraud in court.
I have to wonder if Kris’ annulment filing had anything to do with the premiere of Kourtney and Kim Take New York. In a review I wrote before the show aired, I stated that Kris seemed to truly love his wife, appearing like lovesick puppy, while Kimmie seemed pretty much over the marriage. She was quick to get angry with him and seemed more concerned with creating good TV drama by agreeing to move in with her sister Kourtneyand her family.
Meanwhile, sources close to Kris tell the HollywoodLife blog that a reconciliation with Kim is completely out of the question. “Kris is no longer heartbroken and he’s ready to move on,” reveals the source. “His main focus is basketball and he has been hustling for contract opportunities.”
Kris is now reportedly “trying to show teams he’s no longer associated with the Kardashians, so they aren’t influenced negatively by his outside issues.”
So folks, it appears immediately following this season of Kourtney and Kim Take New York, we will get season two of Khloe and Lamar, and then the 125th season of Keeping Up With The Kardashians which is currently filming at the moment. Le sigh. These people are never going away are they? The behind-the-scenes photo is below.
Even better, Adriana De Mouraconfirms season two is set to begin filming in a few weeks, but not without a big shake up!
In an interview with the Miami Herald, Adriana reveals season 1 cast members Larsa Pippen and Cristy Rice will NOT be returning. “Larsa and Cristy are out,’’ states Adriana. “Producers didn’t want this to go in a Basketball Wives direction. We’ll portray Miami the way it should be portrayed.’’ Ouch!
So who will be the new housewives taking their places? Adriana has no idea though she assures us almost everyone in Miami is vying to be on the show.
“It’s so funny, when we aired, everyone said, ‘Oh that show is so bad. I don’t even watch it,’ she says. “But when they were casting, all of a sudden — I’m not going to mention names — but now half of Miami wants to be in it.’’
Adriana once again defends her show and the lackluster first season. She explains the first season didn’t work because Bravo never meant for the series to become a Real Housewives franchise. Indeed, the show was originally intended to be a Miami Social knockoff, but became a Housewives franchise during the editing process.
“That’s why we had shorter episodes and all that foolishness,’’ says the optimistic Adriana. “Now we’re hoping to beat Beverly Hills!’’ Umm let’s not get ahead of ourselves now Adrie!
It’s pretty much a fact that Kate Gosselin will do anything to get attention from the media and capture the limelight again. But is she really so desperate for some attention she’d get a facelift? It sure looks like it!
After some shocking photos surfaced of the CouponCabin.com blogger at work looking a little errrr… changed, the media instantly started suspecting that Kate, who is no stranger to plastic surgery, may have done something to her face. Well, of course she is denying it all while rushing to the nearest TV camera to give an interview about how she hasn’t done a thing, nope nothing at all!
“I mean, honestly – I’m 36! No, I have not had a facelift,” she insisted. “People have too much time on their hands.” Speaking to Access Hollywood Live, Kate relished in her new-found attention! “Honestly, I feel like it should go away and the rumors just keep getting more and more ridiculous,” she said of the media’s coverage of her life. “I’m busy raising my kids and working and I honestly laughed at the facelift thing because I don’t know any 36 year olds who have had a facelifts – or need one.”
Kate chalks up her tightened new appearance to training for the upcoming Rock n Roll Marathon in Las Vegas. “I’m running a marathon on Sunday – I’m running a lot of miles. Obviously your body is going to change and you lose a lot of weight. I’m guessing that’s what people are noticing,” Kate insisted. “My hair was parted differently? Different makeup artist that day?” I dunno… something looks off… definitely tightened up!
As for how she is coping following the cancellation of Kate Plus 8, Kate admits it’s hard! “There’s definitely something missing in our lives and we miss the people that were behind the cameras,” she reveals. “From a mom aspect, I miss being able to show my kids the world and do all of those adventures and I think that I miss the most convenient job in the whole wide world – to get paid when someone’s coming in recording your home videos is still a dream come true and it worked that way.”
Even though Kate wants a career in TV she will definitely not be sharing the spotlight with ex-husband Jon Gosselin anytime soon — no matter how much money was on the table! “I’ll never film another frame of TV with Jon again,” she snapped.
“You could offer me every last dollar on the planet. I don’t work for money. Jon lives his own life now and I have a lot of peace in my life for me and the kids so I’d have to say no, I cannot compromise my morals and standards to get paid a ridiculous amount of money,” Kate stated emphatically. “I don’t feel like it’s healthy or beneficial for my kids to watch so there’s no point.”
WHAT DO YOU THINK OF KATE’S FACE? PLASTIC SURGERY OR NO? ARE YOU SURPRISED KATE IS UNWILLING TO FILM WITH JON EVER AGAIN?
Let’s go ahead and add another minute to the Kardashians’ original fifteen as Kourtney Kardashian is now pregnant with baby No. 2!
Kourtney confirmed the news to UsWeekly that she is indeed expecting a second child with baby daddy Scott Disick. But that’s not the shocker folks! What is it you ask? Well, Kourt is announcing the news to the world while just 9 weeks along!
“Now I’m nine weeks along,” Kourtney tells UsWeekly. “You’re supposed to wait 12 weeks to tell people, but I feel confident.” Well feeling confident and also announcing the news to deflect from her little sister, Kimmie Kardashian’s divorce backlash! Those crafty Kardashians! Always so transparent.
Kourtney, 32, reveals she took the pregnancy test about five weeks ago and woke up Scott, 28 (apparently is not a morning person), around 7.a.m. to tell him the good news.
So was baby #2 planned for the unwed couple? Or was the news a surprise? “It wasn’t like we weren’t trying,” says Scott. “We kind of just said, ‘If it’s meant to be, it’ll be.’” Kourtney and Scott’s son Mason turns 2 in December.
This pregnancy news is even more surprising as the couple can be seen on the second of Kourtney and Kim Takes New Yorksupposedly having major problems in their relationship. The series, which was just taped in September and October, depicts the two sleeping in separate bedrooms and being at each other’s throats.
A source, however, tells the HollywoodLife blog the obvious — which is that their storyline is all scripted for the show. “It’s funny because Scott and Kourtney’s relationship is actually pretty strong,” a source close to the couple reveals. “As the new season continues, they will have their moments ‘for the cameras,’ but it’s a lot of smoke and mirrors.” Oh you don’t say! Makes you wonder how much of the upcomingKris Humphries is a total jerk storyline was also scripted for the cameras.
In the meantime, we can all await the new E! special Kourtney’s Fairytale Wedding Delivery any minute now! You know it’s coming!
Reunited and it feels so….. Hot! Part one of the first ever (and probably last ever) Millionaire Matchmaker reunion aired last night, and not only did the beloved Andy Cohen put Patti in the hot seat, but he reunited some of Patti’s most memorable clients from the past five seasons. All the clients and Patti were looking hot, hot, hot! The heat continued as Andy dived into the whole WWHL fiasco.
In case you forgot, Patti Stanger said some unfortunate comments on her appearance earlier this year on Andy’s late-night show. She claimed gays cannot commit, and Jewish men lie. Well, doesn’t she realize her boss is both of those? In order to save her job, Patti backpedals claiming she could not sleep for days (or eat?) after she offended so many people. She does major damage control telling Andy it was her idea to even set up gays on TV — no credit to Andy Cohen? Andy, not quick to let off the heat, calls her out saying she makes generalizations a.k.a. stereotypes! Let’s not sugar coat it, but Patti continues on her self-reflection stating she wants to soften up her image. Good luck with that.

CBS loves a reality crossover! Unfortunately for viewers, Survivors turned Survivors turned Amazing Race contestants turned Survivor (you get my drift) Rob and Amber Mariano have been replaced with a new over-exposed celebreality power couple.
Rachel Reilly and Brendon Villegas were the Big Brother couple many people loved to hate. We watched the pair fall in love on Season 12 of the hit show (who thought that would last?) and get engaged before returning for Round Two on the following season. Season 13 brought more of the same for the hot-and-cold, drama-loving pair when they returned with other former BB twosomes to switch up the show’s dynamic (sound familiar, Survivor?) with Rachel going on to win the $500,000 grand prize after her honey got the boot (yet again).
Well, now it seems the couple will have another chance to win over our hearts as they compete in the twentieth season of Amazing Race. Thanksgiving weekend, there were several reports that the new season was filming at Los Angeles International Airport, and among the traveling partners were Rachel and Brendon. Someone has to fill Ethan Zohn and Jenna Morasca’s shoes though, right?
Perhaps the pair will be the first CBS power couple to actually win Amazing Race. There have been several past crossover pairs, but only Rob and Amber have come close to taking home the title when they finished second on Season 7… not to be confused with when they traveled the world on the “all-star” edition of the series. If these airport sightings are accurate, maybe the couple will find the popularity needed to have CBS foot the bill for a televised wedding!
The new season of Amazing Race is set to premiere early next year.
DID YOU WATCH RACHEL AND BRENDON ON BIG BROTHER? HOW DO YOU THINK THE PAIR WILL DO IN THE AMAZING RACE? THOUGHTS ON CBS RECYCLING REALITY STARS?
