It seems that even though the ladies girls of Teen Mom 2 have taken over our television sets, the original “mothers” are not going quietly into that good night. Never one to be absent from the tabloids and Internet fodder for long, Amber Portwood is now facing two years in prison… at least she waited for her Child Protective Services case to be closed.

While her ex Gary “Strippergate” Shirley has gained primary custody of the couple’s daughter, Leah, Amber’s clean slate may not be as clean as she’d like. She’s on two years probation for socking Gary while MTV cameras rolled. However, she had just a few stipulations for her probation, and according to TMZ, she’s violated them all. Court documents obtained by the site state that the several terms of Amber’s probation have not been met.

Amber’s probation officer is accusing her of a multitude of violations, including –

– “Failure to behave well in society” — namely, drinking too much and hitting a person at a restaurant last month
– Failure to obtain a GED
– Failure to complete 6 months of anger control evaluation and classes
– Failure to pay probation fees
– Failure to set up a $10,000 college fund for her baby daughter

My personal favorite — “failure to behave well in society” a.k.a. binge drinking and beating up on IHOP restaurant patrons.

Amber’s original sentence for that whole “punching Gary national television” situation was suspended pending she meet the criteria of her probation. Now that she’s been accused otherwise, will she face the two year jail sentence? Her hearing is set for January, so let’s hope the second cycle of Teen Moms ramp up their drama then for competition’s sake we should know more about her legal fate then.

While Amber’s dealing with legal issues, fellow cast mate Farrah Abraham is focusing on matters of the heart. The young mother, at the ripe old age of twenty, is currently romancing Marcel Kaminstein — fourteen years her senior — who she met on the Internet dating site JDate.com.

“I’m happy and hoping for the best,” says the mom of Sophia on her budding relationship. Life & Style revealed in September that Farrah is searching for “a man who is happy, supportive, works hard, is successful, can stay in but also go out, is active, outgoing, easygoing, likes children and dogs, can be serious but knows when to have fun, and is a romantic,” per her online profile. You know who that sounds like, right? Paging Kieffer Delp, paging Mr. Delp!

Farrah and Marcel went public with their romance in December. After brunching and beaching in Miami, the couple posed for pictures and shared kisses with Farrah later tweeting, “I had a great time at the beach with my bf!” Tweeting and using tween lingo like “bf” — sounds exactly like what the normal 34-year-old looks for in a 20-year-old lady friend.

A friend of Farrah’s reveals that even 2-year-old Sophia is smitten, stating, “She’s always hugging him. He’s great with kids.” He should be, he’s dating one. Zing! Inappropriate? :) The magazine reports that Farrah plans to keep Sophia full time in Florida, even though the toddler has been mainly living with Farrah’s mother Debra in Iowa.

So, is this mature suitor the MTV teen (mom) queen’s perfect match? She admits, “I want to build a strong and lasting relationship with him.” Sounds like perfect fodder for season three!

WHAT ARE YOU THOUGHTS ON AMBER’S ALLEGED PROBATION VIOLATIONS? SHOULD SHE SERVE TIME IN JAIL? THOUGHTS ON FARRAH’S NEW RELATIONSHIP? IS HER NEW BOYFRIEND CREEPY — NOT BECAUSE OF THE MATHEMATICAL AGE DIFFERENCE, BUT BECAUSE SHE ACTS LIKE SHE’S TWELVE?


Jill Zarin loves her some media attention! Nary a day goes by without Jill getting some press or giving an interview. And sure she is spreading the word about Skweeze Couture, but for someone who claims to be over her appearance on Real Housewives of New York she has a difficult time not talking about it! I guess it is her claim to fame…

In the latest, Jill spoke to Rob Shuter via his HDNet show Naught But Nice With Rob and talked about how she’s changed since leaving the show. “Whatever I say no one will believe me, but I never lie. I am so happy to be off that show,” Jill starts off by saying, adding that she’s sad to lose her paycheck!

As to what’s different now that she is no longer beholden to Bravo, Jill insists she’s back to being “me”. “I got my happy back,” she explains. “I didn’t realize it when I was in it, but I think I became like a monster to the people around me because I was under so much stress.”

Jill goes on to describe the filming process as leaving the ladies “strung out,” due to stress. “It just takes so much energy; this manipulation, of trying to figure out whose team you’re on and who’s your friend and who’s your enemy. It just sucks up all the air in the room,” Jill elaborates.

To illustrate how happy she is, Jill explains that at a recent dinner party for her birthday (which was attended by maybe “life-long” friend Kelly Bensimon) her guests kept telling Jill how much she’s “changed,” with her friends mentioning that she was calm and relaxed. Former cast mate LuAnn de Lesseps was also due to attend Jill’s birthday, but arrived too late because of a scheduled filming.

Jill also mentioned her plans to film her own reality show, claiming it will be filled with less drama! But the question is will there be any takers?

“There won’t be any puppeteers pulling strings to make fights, and there won’t be jealousy,” explained Jill. “There wont be those kinds of things that change who people are. I just really want to do my own thing. I just really want to be with my family. I had a lot of anxiety. I had no control and I’m a little bit of a control freak.”

While the world awaits the verdict on whether any network will pick up Jill’s proposed show, she will be returning to TV on Dec. 25, as a judge on “Iron Chef” alongside Art Smith.

In other RHONY news, Jill may not miss being part of the cast but it seems her former cast mates certainly miss her, surprisingly. “It’s different. The girls are different so it’s a totally different experience,” LuAnn said, speaking to HollywoodLife. ”I always miss the girls. We worked a long time together. You miss people you’re comfortable with.”

Ramona Singer agreed, commenting: “It’s sad not to have all the girls that I grew up on the show with. We all did this together. But change can be good.” Admitting that she misses fellow blonde Alex McCord the most, Ramona promised the upcoming season will still be good! While she isn’t revealing who’s in and who’s out as far as casting, saying: “We’re not allowed to talk about the new girls,” Ramona promises, “It’s going to be a great show [though].”

DO YOU BELIEVE THAT JILL IS HAPPY TO BE AWAY FROM RHONY? ARE YOU SURPRISED THAT SHE ADMITTED THE SHOW TURNED HER INTO A MONSTER? DO YOU THINK RAMONA AND LUANN REALLY MISS THEIR FORMER CO-STARS?


In response to The Situation‘s lawsuit against Abercrombie & Fitch, the company apparently believes they’ve done nothing wrong and The Situation has no grounds to sue them after they supposedly banned him from wearing their clothes and then referenced his famous phrases on two of their t-shirts! The company is accusing The Situation of having both a baseless lawsuit and of being unable to take a joke. Seriously.

The Situation filed a lawsuit against the company for knocking off slogans he claims he trademarked. The trademarks in question G.T.L and The Situation, of course!

Abercrombie & Fitch now denies the Jersey Shore star has any grounds to sue them “because he doesn’t technically own the trademarks in question… he only applied for them.” According to TMZ, A&F claims The Situation’s application for Gym Tan Laundry has been “suspended” because MTV “already owns ‘Gym Tanning Laundry,’ and the US Patent & Trademark Office thinks they’re too similar.” Oh my…

Despite the trademark issues, Abercrombie also believes that producing the shirts in question is actually protected under a law that “allows parody as part of free speech.” Not only that they were meant to be a joke and The Situation should get a sense of humor! The Situation has yet to comment on Abercrombie’s claims.

In other Jersey Shore news Snooki has been on a diet! And girl looks good! Revealing her new bikini body on Twitter, Snooki has been dieting and exercising diligently — and it has paid off. “So happy I’m at my goal weight I was when I was in high school! Feelin fit is amazing and can’t wait to tone up hardcore,” Snooki tweeted. And to complete her total transformation, Snooki asked Santa for a pair of “knockers” like JWoww‘s! Photos of a bikini clad Snooki are below.

With The Bachelor premiering next month, Ben Flajnik is spilling some details about his upcoming season and claiming that actress Jennifer Love Hewitt wanted to take him off the market before ABC had the chance!

Us Weekly confirms that Ben went on one date with the 32-year-old actress before signing on to become The Bachelor. A witness spotted the pair on an awkward seeming “first date” at Lion’s Pub in San Francisco this August. “It seemed like a first date, but he wasn’t overly affectionate,” the witness reported, adding that Jennifer seemed very interested in Ben! “As the bar started to close she grabbed his hand and marched outside.”

Ben confirms that Jennifer initiated everything! “She had reached out to me and wanted to come up to the winery so she did with some friends,” Ben explained.

“She’s a nice girl, but… after this is all said and done, I want to go back to Northern California to my normal life,” he disclosed. “Ending up with a Hollywood celebrity is not something I ever imagined doing.” Well, good thing he had 25 more eligible bachelorettes to choose from! Other reports have also claimed Ben thought Jennifer was a little cray-cray!

Speaking of the upcoming season, Ben reveals he is happy he participated in the show. Now that filming has completed Ben is happily settling into his life post-reality TV, but did he find love? Zap2It covered a recent press conference Ben did to advertise the new season and he’s not giving away any details!

“I’m happy with my decision in doing the show. Another good experience, another cathartic, therapeutic adventure… I can’t tell you [if I'm happy with the outcome]. I’m happy with the experience, I’m happy I decided to become the bachelor,” Ben divulged. “I have no regrets about anything that I did. I feel like my decisions were well thought out and I’ll leave it at that.”

“When that first limo pulled up, sheer panic and terror set in. It took the first few ladies for me to kind of settle in. Your heart is racing, it’s nerve-wracking on both sides,” Ben said, describing the initial meet-n-greet with the women.

After going through the process himself, Ben is empathetic to the choice his former love Ashley Hebert faced and understands being torn between two people. “You’re obviously trying to figure out a lot of things along the way and it’s a difficult situation. Easily the hardest thing I’ve had to do in my entire life,” Ben recounted. “You’re always thinking about each individual relationship, where it’s going, where it’s not going. It’s difficult.”

While we’re all wondering if Ben will be walking down the aisle, Bachelor host Chris Harrison isn’t giving anything away either only commenting that Ben is “in the right place to find love.”

According to a bizarre report, Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Taylor Armstrong watched a video depicting abuse and taped the reaction for her personal website.

Radar Online is reporting that Taylor, who has alleged she was abused by now deceased husband Russell Armstrong, recently watched the viral video of a Texas judge beating his cerebal palsy- stricken daughter for illegally downloading music on the Internet, all while filming her reaction.

The reason? According to sources, Taylor was simply viewing the video to confront her fears about abuse. Taylor has claimed she grew up in an abusive household. Her psychiatrist, Dr. Charles Sophy, was reportedly with her while she viewed the video.

A source goes on to explain why Taylor decided to tape her reaction. “Taylor wanted to confront her fears about domestic violence, and she had heard so much about the judge beating his daughter. She filmed it for it to be released on her website to educate women about domestic violence,” reveals a source.

“Taylor was absolutely gutted watching the video. She cried, and she got very, very angry. She saw herself in the judge’s daughter, vulnerable and unable to fight back. Taylor thought it took tremendous courage for Hillary to film the brutal beating, and to finally release it. Taylor kept saying that could have been my daughter Kennedy. Even though Russell never laid a hand on their daughter, there was no guarantee that if he had lived, he wouldn’t have done that,” adds the source.

Taylor reportedly plans on posting her reaction to the video on her website around the same time her book will be released. Taylor’s tell-all memoir Hiding From Reality, My Story of Love, Loss, and Finding The Courage Within, is slated to be released in February, 2012.

Allrighty, moving on to a recent interview given by Taylor in which she opens up about her struggles during the past year.

Talking to the Hollyscoop blog this week while she was doing some charity work, Taylor admits she has had a rough year. “We’re just continuing with our holiday tradition,” said Taylor. “Obviously things are different for us but at the same time you know really blessed to have a lot of support.”

Taylor was also asked about her behavior on the current season of the RHOBH which involves constantly lashing out at her costars. “This has been a really tough year for me,” Taylor says of her behavior. “And I think people are figuring out why, but at the same time that was my reality at the time and I’m certainly not proud of all of it but all I can do is move on.”

Despite everything, Taylor reveals she is trying to keep things positive for 5-year-old daughter Kennedy by “just letting her be a kid.” “We just went out and got our tree and we have the whole house decorated and just letting her be a kid,” she told Hollyscoop. “We’re going to have our family over and… being here it really helps me to remember to be thankful for all the support that we have.”

The Kardashian drama is never ending! The latest is a new report by Life & Style magazine which states Kris Humphries’ dad is considering writing a tell-all about the Kardashian family!

While Kris, 26, signed a confidentiality agreement as part of his wedding pre-nup to Kim Kardashian, none of his family members did, which allows them to spill whatever details they want about the Keeping Up With the Kardashians clan.

The latest issue of Life & Style claims, Kris’ father, William Humphries, expressed his interest in an explosive, blockbuster tell-all book. “I’d love to write a book,” he reportedly stated. “It’s important to him that Kris’ side of the story is out there,” notes a Humphries family friend.

“Kris has told his father everything,” reveals a Kardashian family friend. “They have no control over what William says,” the insider confirms. “And he has many stories to tell.” Another source says, “It’s Kim’s worst nightmare. The Kardashians have no control over what William says.” A rep for Kris, however, denies that any of the Humphries clan has plans to write a tell-all.

Life & Style adds that an expose would not only expose Kimmie, but her entire family. “Nothing gets in the way of business for them,” claims the Humphries insider. “Kris was just a pawn.”

So what kind of secrets could the Humphries spill about Kimmie? Sources state these could include bedroom secrets, Kim spending “six hours in hair and makeup throughout the day” as well as scandalous secrets about their reality shows! Sources close to Kris also reveal he believes Kim and her pimp mom Kris failed to disclose “all the sources of money she made from the wedding.”

Meanwhile, the current issue of Star magazine is reporting that Kimmie Kakes, who refused to return her wedding gifts despite the fact that her marriage only lasted 72 days, had good reason for her decision.

According to the mag, Kim has cashed most of the gifts she received at a luxury boutique in Hollywood in order to buy Rolex watches for her family! “Kim had never had the gifts delivered,” an insider reveals. “The store was still waiting for her to give them an address.”

Instead, Kim reportedly paid a visit to the boutique the week after she filed for divorce to inform them she didn’t want the gifts sent to her. “[Kris] told Kim from the beginning that he wanted her to return the wedding gifts to guests who bought them,” a source reveals. “But she totally ignored him and just went ahead and did this. He thinks it’s disgusting.”

Moving on to Barbara Walters, who is now bashing the Kardashian family after putting them on her list of the 10 Most Fascinating People of 2011.

In the interview, which was taped 25 days before Kim filed for divorce in October, Kim tells Barbara “Married life is good” when asked about her marriage. Poor Baba Wawa now feels the Kardashians can’t be trusted.

“It’s not that she lied — that was the first interview that we did, we did it in October,” Barbara revealed on The View yesterday.

However, Barbara was a tad upset as she stated pimpmomager for the Kardashian family, Kris Jenner, had promised her that nothing would happen between the time the interview was taped and the program’s airing. And as we all know, a lot has happened since including Kim’s divorce filing and Kourtney Kardashian’s pregnancy announcement.

“You cannot trust the Kardashians,” said Barbara. Ouch!

It gets even better as Barbara politely let the Kardashian clan know they have no talent during her interview with them. “You don’t really act; you don’t sing; you don’t dance,” said Barbara to the family. “You don’t have any — forgive me — any talent!”

The Kardashian’s defense? Their talent is “entertaining” people via their reality shows. Kim stated they’re “still entertaining” to the viewers who watch their shows, explaining that it’s actually “more of a challenge for you to go on a reality show, and get people to fall in love with you for being you.” Yes folks, apparently that takes talent!

Barbara also asked about the now infamous sex tape with Ray J a.k.a the main reason we know who the Kardashians are! When asked if it was a good thing, a stammering Kim responded, “I’ve made mistakes in my life for sure.” Pimpmomager Kris quickly came to her favorite daughter’s rescue adding: “It was devastating for the whole family. You cry yourself to sleep for a few nights, then you hire an attorney.” Sure it was!

There’s never a dull moment in Real Housewives of New Jersey land! I’m sure most of you heard of the Twittercation involving The View co-host Sherri Shepherd, Teresa Giudice and Melissa Gorga over the weekend.

It seems that Sherri and her husband were attending a party in New Jersey and who should show up but Melissa, hauling with her a buncha drama. Le sigh. And if you are wondering what kind of people get into an argument at a Christmas party, look no further than the hot-tempered ladies of RHONJ!

Sherri, rightfully annoyed that a peaceful evening was ruined by squabbling twelve-year-olds women, took to Twitter to complain about the nonsense. “Why am I at a party in Jersey with Sal & one of the New Jersey Housewives gets into an altercation w someone! This is surreal & a #hotmess,” Sherri admonished, via Twitter. Sherri initially believed Teresa was the hot mess in question, but Teresa immediately set her straight, Tweeting: “And no I was NOT at the Jersey party w/ @SherriEShepherd yest. I was in NYC w/my kids. She’s got her hot mess NJHousewives mixed up! ;) xx”

After realizing her error Sherri, tweeted her sorries. “Apology to @Teresa_Giudice … thought you were at the party. I swear you got a doppleganger [sic]! Just as well – the drama didn’t involve you!” Teresa sort of does have a doppelganger (assuming she knows what that is): her sister in law Melissa — who as it turns out was the hot mess in question! Oh dear.

It seems Melissa attended the get together with Kathy Wakile and some bickering occurred in the bathroom — wait didn’t this already happen at the Posche Fashion Show? Melissa instantly went on the defense over Sherri’s “hot mess” accusation and replied, “”No honey! Someone tried 2 pull a publicity stunt last night 2try & cause drama, I was upset they did that!” Melissa claims she was jut an innocent bystander victimized by fame seeking harlots. uh huh. Again, haven’t we heard this story before (ahem… Posche Fashion Show)?

Speaking to the Huffington Post, Melissa explains her side of the story and insists it was all nonsense stirred up by a random party guest looking for a spot on RHONJ. “Someone tried to cause a fake fight to get attention because they are trying to be on the new ‘Housewives.’ ”

“Someone pretended that they overheard me and Kathy talking about a girl in the bathroom that is trying to get on the next season,” Melissa recounts. “I knew it was B.S. because we didn’t talk about anyone in the bathroom. So I called them out on it right away.”

“The girl admitted it the next day,” Melissa added. “It was so stupid they were just trying to get attention.” Richie Wakile summed up the incident as, “Fake ass people out there! & you know who you are bitches!”

No word on who the “girl” is, but I’m guessing there is a lot more to this story than meets the eye — particularly with all the rumors swirling about Melissa as of late!

If you’re wondering if Melissa is tired of living “On Display” the answer is of course not! A fan tweeted her asking just that and she replied: “It comes with territory what I don’t like is the lying, everyone has an opinion I can’t get mad at that! Xo” Will the insanity never cease?

In other RHONJ news, Jacqueline Laurita is up to her Twitter antics again and this time she is admitting something we all suspected! Apparently her friendship with Melissa is not exactly what it’s portrayed to be! After giving Melissa a shout-out for producing payroll sheets to prove she was never a dancer, a fan asked Jacs about the nature of her relationship with her ex-bestfriend’s sister-in-law. Jacqueline Tweetplied: “Got friendly w/Mel bc I respect her as Ts fam.I like her.Shes always been nice2me.We dont talk&hangout like bffs.C her here&there”

My interpretation: Jacqueline got angry at Teresa and started buddy-ing up with Melissa to make Teresa angry.
