It’s reunion time for the ladies of Basketball Wives with the first part of the drama (if you can call it that) airing last night. Former NBA star John Salley is back to regulate host the ladies as they reminisce about the third season.
Tami’s wig hair combined with Shaunie’s dress distracts me at first, but a clip of Royce blasting the ladies on last season’s reunion brings me back up to speed. When questioned about the new attitude she found last season, Royce explains she is just being herself. And the real Royce wears Larry Byrd tube socks, not Gucci shoes, to go luxury car shopping. Royce calls out Jen for claiming Jen’s makeover of Royce was her “good deed for the day.” Not one to be one-upped in passive aggression, Jen says, “I don’t hear anyone talking. What’s the next question?”

Professional reality star Kate Gosselin is taking the news of her show being canceled rather well, or at least she’s pretending to be.
Just moments after the TLC network made the announcement yesterday that Kate Plus 8 had been canceled, Kate, 36, took to her twitter page (yes she has a twitter page – @Kateplusmy8) to give out a statement.
In a series of multiple tweets, Kate stated: “We’ve had a great run! Six years of whirlwind funfilled adventures thanks to TLC and our many many supportive &diehard fans! While it is very sad for me and the kids (there were many tears at the breakfast table this morning!), we are looking forward with great anticipation to our bright future!”
She continued, “As is very typical for me, I am choosing to see the positive in this situation and I am excited to consider the many more invigorating opportunities that may come my way! In the meanX, I hope 2have more time4motivational speaking, book writing &other fun work opportunities that come my way… And maybe even some dating??!! We wish our fans well.” As is very typical? Whatever helps you sleep at night Kate!
As for Kate’s ex-husband, Jon Gosselin, he is simply “very relieved” the show he used to be a part of is now over. “I hope they can have more private family moments,” Jon told RadarOnline. “I hope that this will bring more privacy to my children and that they can get the proper attention they need for any personal issues they might have in the future.”
When asked about Kate’s next moves, Jon reveals he has no idea what his ex-wife is planning to do now. “I have no clue what her next move is,” Jon said. “I hope she dedicates more time to the kids now and I wish her the best as she goes forward with whatever career she wants to pursue.”

On last night’s season 5 premiere of the Millionaire Matchmaker, Patti Stanger took a break from giving her unsolicited love advice to A-list celebrities to return to her day job of finding love for the single millionaires of Los Angeles. She begins the way she ended season four by bashing the singles of New York. Did she forget that is her home territory?
The biggest catch this season is not that Patty shrank 2 dress sizes, but that a certain heart-shaped rock is missing from her left hand. Yes, Patty is back to criticizing matchmaking everyone in LA including herself. Her sidekicks Destin and Rachel are in tow. I was glad to see despite the new single Patty, new office, new recruiters, and new city, that Destin and Rachel kept the same hairstyles.

Russell, husband ofTaylor Armstrong, was found hanging in his bedroom on Mulholland Drive. Sources tell TMZ the L.A. City Fire Department arrived at Russell’s home on Monday night and pronounced him dead at 8:16 PM.
Authorities are saying they did not find a suicide note. This tragedy comes less than a month after Taylor filed for divorce alleging physical and verbal abuse. After Taylor revealed her abuse allegations, it was discovered that other exes of Russell (an ex-wife and an ex-girlfriend) had also alleged physical abuse and had filed restraining orders against him in the past. Russell also had other legal issues, including bankruptcy and several lawsuits.
Russell and Taylor have a 5-year-old daughter – Kennedy. Russell is survived by other children as well. Russell was 47-years-old. We will bring you more news once it becomes available.
UPDATE – Russell had been having a hard time dealing with his past issues becoming public as earlier this year, he had his attorney contact us about taking down a report we did about his past legal issues.
UPDATE #2 – RadarOnline is reporting Taylor has been “hysterical” since finding out about Russell’s suicide last night. Taylor “has been up all night. She is hysterical, and can barely speak. She has no idea why Russell would do this. She doesn’t know how she is going to be able to tell her daughter, Kennedy,” a source close to the situation reveals.
UPDATE #3 – Russell’s attorney tells TMZ Russell was at his wits end over his impending divorce from Taylor in addition to his mounting financial problems in the days leading to his death. Russell’s lawyer Ronald Richards states, “I feel bad because his credit cards weren’t working … He had tremendous financial problems.” Richard adds that even if Russell has a will, he doesn’t have any assets.
Following months of speculation, it has now been confirmed that the Real Housewives of Miamiwill be returning for a second season!
Housewife Alexia Echevarria confirmed the news via her twitter page! “Dear Followers, Yes, #RHOM2 is coming back but there is going to be some BIG changes and that’s all I can say…… so Stay tuned!” tweeted Alexia.
As of the moment, there is no word yet on the casting changes we can expect though the general consensus seems to be that Larsa Pippen will not be returning. The reason? Well for starters, she is no longer residing in Miami since moving to Chicago with her husband and family.
At the end of the day, it’s safe to assume most fans of the show will be okay with any of the housewives getting the axe as long as Mama Elsa Patton returns! Let’s face it, Elsa was THE star of the show.
TELL US – THOUGHTS ON THE RHOM SEASON 2? EXCITED? DO YOU THINK THE SHOW CAN BE SAVED?
Well, the holidays have finally ended on Real Housewives of New Jersey, so that means the housewives can just get down to the business of being their normal ridiculous, crazy, over-the-top selves without Jesus’ birthday or New Years Invitation issues or friendsgivings to distract us from the real problems at hand – Ashley. Yep, this episode was all about everyone’s favorite House-child: Ashley “The Hat” Holmes, but luckily it seems her days on Franklin Lake soil are limited!
Things begin with Teresa announcing she is putting that whole bankruptcy fiasco behind her (too bad, the worst of that is only yet to come) and focusing on the future– most specifically her newest cookbook, for which she is hosting a family photoshoot, sans, of course, her brother. Teresa mentions that what’s important to her is: “good food, good sex, expensive stuff she can’t afford, fame-whoring, starting drama, and family and friends.” After several mild meltdowns from children and husband, the shoot wraps. I wonder if Papa Giudice’s wine was on hand for the crew – because they definitely needed it!

Ding dong the witch is deadKate Gosselin’s reality TV career is officially over!
Just moments ago, the TLC network announced it has canceled Kate’s reality show Kate Plus 8.
“TLC has decided not to renew another season of Kate Plus 8,” the network said in a statement. “By the end of this season Kate Plus 8 will have hit the 150 episode mark (including Jon & Kate Plus 8); an exceptional milestone. TLC hopes to check in with Kate and the family periodically with specials in the future.”
The cancellation of Kate’s show comes as no surprise as we reported back in April that ratings for the show were at their lowest in years. At that time, new episodes of Kate Plus 8 were averaging just over 874,000 viewers per episode.
Earlier this year, a report came out stating – “If her ratings drop to the 1 million mark this will be her last season, and then Kate would have to get a real job.”
Well folks, it now appears Kate, 36, will indeed have to get a real J.O.B to care for her plus eight.

TELL US – THOUGHTS ON KATE’S SHOW BEING CANCELED? WHAT DO YOU THINK SHE’S GOING TO DO NOW?
Following what can only be described as the most dramatic season yet, the ladies gather together in the same room to rehash some of the season’s most dramatic moments. Meeka and Tami will get into it again, while Royce will of course argue with the “circle.” John Salley returns to host the show again this year. It airs tonight at 8/7c on VH1 and a preview clip is below! There are also rumors that Eric Williams might make an appearance on the show (part 1 or part 2) to discuss the drink tossing incident.
In other news, the show’s resident sh*t starter executive producer Shaunie O’Neal is now speaking out against the recent fighting on the show. This is after it came out that the episode featuring the Tami Roman and Meeka Claxtonfight was one of the highest rated of the season. In fact, last week’s finale episode with the drink throwing incident was its highest rated in over 2 years with over 2.6 million viewers tuning in.
Well Shaunie is now claiming she is embarrassed by what the show has become. “When I started the show I really just wanted to follow this group of ladies around. We all have a common bond; we understand each others’ lives. It started as that. Since then, it’s taken on a life of its own,” Shaunie told FOX411’s Pop Tarts. “I never imagined it would be a group of ladies fighting and arguing that way that they do. That was never part of the plan.”
It didn’t end there as Shaunie reveals she feels conflicted that the episodes with the fights garner higher ratings. “I hate that it has to be a fight or an argument that gives us 4.2 million viewers. I hate that, but it’s something where I’m working as hard as I can to show some type of balance, because it is there. We’re going to try to do more of that in season four,” she said. “I know that people love the fighting and the arguing, but I do want to have some positive in there somewhere.” Right Shaunie. Are you buying it?
