NeNe is speaking out defending her decision to let Bryson learn from his mistakes. “I believe in Never Making the Same Mistake Twice. With that said, I decided that tough love was better than no love at all. I decided to leave Brice in jail a few extra days to teach him a lesson,” NeNe explained on her Bravo blog.
“Brice didn’t steal because he was in need, he simply stole because he was giving in to peer pressure, seeking attention, looking for something to do, and being silly. Whatever the case may be, I felt a lesson needed to be learned!” I quite agree!
And further defending her decision, NeNe confronted allegations that she was ignoring Brice’s needs! “I know there are parents that would have chosen a different route, as Peter [Thomas]suggested, but I felt this was what my child needed. My goal is always to encourage my son.”
“I’m no different from any other parent; I want the absolute best for my son and always want see him on top! Brice, mommy loves you! We all make mistakes, just don’t carry them forward and you will be fine, my love!”
NeNe also tackles some of the other controversies, and she is just tickled by Kim Zolciak and Sheree Whitfield acting like the best of friends! “Kim saying she’s known Shereefor ten years. LOL! I introduced them at the beginning of all this about five years ago,” NeNe insists.
“Kim saying she and Sheree don’t talk behind each other’s back. Aren’t you the same person that said Sheree writes bad checks and returns the clothes she wears? Didn’t Sheree try pulling off your wig and said things about you dating married men! I could go on and on, but I’ll wait until…”
And NeNe is very amused by the state of Chateau Sheree aka a big ol’ hole in the ground with some overgrown bushes! “I was laughing out loud when Phaedra [Parks] said there’s not a trespassing sign out and the house won’t be ready by Christmas! You’ve got to love it!”
Moving on, Kandi Burruss is calling Sheree out as an instigator. “I’m sick of this whole black baby drama,” Kandi snaps, adding that her opinion hasn’t changed. She still doesn’t believe Kim would have gone on the trip. “It doesn’t matter if the orphanage was in Africa or Asia, I just don’t see it and I really don’t see what the big deal was about what I said.”
Kandi is still confused about why Sheree is twisting what happened and making the situation into something it’s not. “I don’t know why Sheree made it into this race issue. Sitting there going back and forth with them at the lunch was frustrating and pointless to me,” Kandi writes in her Bravo blog.
“Sheree was sticking with her story about the black baby comment, and she already had Kim sucked into it. They didn’t get nor did they want to understand my point of view. Of course Kim is going to say she would’ve gone. No one wants to look bad or come off as insensitive.”
One thing that Kandi is really furious about is Kim’s comments about her daughter Riley! “I was not feeling the scene where Kim was talking to her landlord/interior designer about her keeping Riley when A.J passed. I mean my daughter has spent the night at her house plenty times. Was there any reason she had to go on about that occasion?,” Kandi wonders.
“Seriously, don’t even bring my daughter’s name up when you’re trying to make a point about a negative subject. I will let your ass have it in the worst way. Y’all haven’t seen that side of me, and hopefully you never will, but putting my daughter’s name out there will definitely bring it out!” Um… whoa. Yeah, I think it’s time for Kandi to leave this show. She is too good for this drama and unlike most of these women has a legitimate and lucrative career!
Finally, Marlo Hampton recently celebrated her birthday with an elegant and sophisticated (just like Sheree!) dinner party. The woman who is anything but elegant and sophisticated, apparently patched things up with Sheree’s bestie Lawrence Washington after the gay slur she made in South Africa. According to The Young, Black, and Fabulous blog, Marlo spent her actual birthday in Europe, but her ATL birthday party was thrown by her good friend and interior decorator, Michel Boyd, in his home.
And despite her close friendship with NeNe, she did not appear to be in attendance. Photos of Marlo’s birthday bash are below. I must say, I love her pants!

Ever since moving to Dallas, things are troubling for the only stable Kardashian couple, Khloe Kardashian and Lamar Odom. The couple has always seemed rock solid and very in love, but several recent stressors have left them feeling disconnected and at odds with each other. Previous reports have stated Lamar is “depressed” about leaving LA and the Lakers, and apparently, the couple is “not happy” and their marriage is “in crisis” as a result!
“The situation in Dallas is not good,” a friend tells Life & Style (via their print edition). “He is not happy and Khloe isn’t either.” Apparently, stress over their attempts to conceive along with Lamar’s performance on the court this season, are driving a wedge between the Khloe & Lamar stars.
Being away from her family is also a struggle for Khloe, who is reportedly “jealous” that Kim and Kourtney are spending so much time together and is “sad” to see them getting “so close.” Why anyone would want to spend more time with Kim is beyond me! Khloe “misses her family and friends terribly,” the source adds.
Lamar’s recent transfer to the Texas Legends, after a family issue caused him to miss games, is apparently weighing heavily on his heart. The NBA star issued a public apology to his Mavericks’ teammates and revealed he is re-focused and ready to win!
“It was really personal and it was something I had to tend to,” Lamar explains of his decision take a ten-day break. Some unfounded rumors have speculated Khloe suffered a miscarriage. “Sometimes we have to fix whatever’s going on off the court in order for us to fix what’s going on on the court.”
Lamar is empathetic of his teammates’ frustration with both his erratic playing and his lack of focus this season. “I’ve had some things that bothered me and was easily distracted,” Lamar admitted to ESPN. “So, it was easy for me to lose my focus. Again, sometimes we need everything in order in order to give ourselves 100 percent.”
After a great performance in a recent game, he feels he’s back to his A-game. “I just told them to stick with me and at this point in time in my life I need them,” he told his teammates.
And, Lamar also said he is enjoying Texas! “The town, the city has been great. I’ve had a lot of fun since I’ve been here and the reception has always been warm. I’m having a great time here.”
Speaking of professional athletes who need to get their head in the game, Reggie Bush is supposedly still not over Kim! Why do I think Kim’s people planted this story?
“He can’t seem to get her out of his mind,” one of Reggie’s friends informs Star magazine (via their print edition). “It’s like he’s addicted. It’s embarrassing.” If this is true, being addicted to Kim is definitely embarrassing!
“He should be focusing on his career, but he thinks about her all the time,” the source reveals. “He just can’t help himself.”
The Keeping Up With The Kardashians star allegedly flew to Miami where Reggie offered to give her another chance if she promised to leave the celeb-life behind. Which, obviously didn’t happen. As we previously reported, shortly after that alleged trip, Reggie was spotted with a couple of different women!
Following the major success of Mob Wives, it only makes sense that the VH1 network would expand the series with a spinoff!
Herein comes Mob Wives Chicago, which is set to début this Spring on the network! Even better, VH1 has also released the names and biographies of the five cast members.
The cast is pictured above, via the Chicago Suntimes, from left to right: Leah DeSimone, Renee Fecarotta Russo, Pia Rizza, Christina Scoleri and Nora Schweihs.
The press release states, Mob Wives Chicago will follow “the lives of five women allegedly connected to “The Outfit,” Chicago’s version of the Mob, as they bear the cross for the sins of their Mob-associated fathers. With lives that are right off the pages of a story book, each woman has chosen her own way to live her life in the city that was once home to Al Capone, sometimes in spite of and many times because of who her father is.”
So, what can we expect on this new series? According to VH1, “these women battle their friends, families and each other as they try to do what’s best for themselves and their children. But ultimately, it is the ghost of their fathers they battle, living and dead, as they try to overcome and persevere in the face of these men’s notorious legacies.”
Below are more cast photos and bios of each lady!

We’re not out of the woods yet with Top Chef Texas! Like our beloved housewives, Top Chef also gets the reunion treatment, only the difference is the cheftestants don’t wear Loubies and there’s a distinct lack of satin prom-style dresses among them. But still, omnipresent Andy Cohen makes them all hang out together and relive all their old fights, because they’re contractually obligated to show up.
The most exciting piece of information to come out of the reunion was the rumor that Sarah told judge Emeril Lagasse to “eff off” during a heated moment. Per Andy, this was a rumor from the crew. Sarah claims she doesn’t remember saying that, but the camera immediately pans to an awkward “yikes!” look by fellow judge Tom Collicchio, indicating the rumor is most likely true. Sarah begins to cry, like we are supposed to feel bad for her, and starts rambling about how much she loves Emeril.

With news of her pregnancy and engagement finally confirmed, Snooki is stepping up and making some serious changes in her life. The notorious 24-year-old party girl has decided not to film Jersey Shore this summer, she will focus on being a mother and providing her child with a healthy upbringing.
“I’m not living in that house being pregnant. I don’t want to be one of those moms who’s pregnant in a club. It’s disgusting,” Snooki informed Us Weekly in an exclusive interview. Snooki has also decided to postpone her wedding to fiancé Jionni LaValle until next year, because she wants to lose the baby weight.
Snooki said her parents had mixed opinions about her news. “My dad was upset. He said, ‘You have your whole life ahead of you.’ We didn’t talk for a week. He came around eventually, and now he can’t wait for the baby. My mom is so happy for me.”
Apparently, Snooki’s pregnancy has also caused concern among her co-stars. Vinny Guadagnino worried he might be the father after his fling with Snooki last year. “He’s counting the months. At first he was, but then he’s like, ‘It’s no way in the world, it’s no way. It’s gotta be Jionni’s. It’s gotta be,’” Pauly D joked. Uh oh… paging Maury!
Pauly is thrilled for Snookers, saying she has always wanted to be a mother. “I’m real excited. I love babies! I love everything about them, when they’re not yours. So I’ll take care of it, spoil it and then when it’s crying, give it back to Snooki,” he exclaims. “I want to be at the delivery room,” he adds. Um… ew.
Luckily, MTV is supportive of Snooki’s decision to take a break from filming Jersey Shore, because, well, that’s no place for babies! “We wish Nicole a healthy and happy pregnancy and congratulate her on her engagement,” a spokesperson for MTV told PEOPLE. “We support her as she starts this new chapter of her life.” Adding, “No decision has been made yet on a sixth season of Jersey Shore.”
However, many speculate the show has run its course, as the cast have gone in different directions and are getting their own spin offs. Ratings declined this season, but are still strong averaging as many as 5 million viewers a week. Additionally, one does wonder how long the “talent” will be interested in acting like drunken buffoons!
While she doesn’t want to continue with the show that made her famous, Snooki’s spin-off with JWoww is still happening. The two were spotted moving into a Jersey City apartment recently to prepare for filming. And Snooki was spotted filming this week and showing off her engagement ring! A photo of the ring is below!
Finally, Snooki is talking baby names. Way back in November the guidette had babies on the brain and talked about what she would name a future child. Thankfully Pickle and Tequila aren’t on the list. Snooki told GQ her top names are Frankie, Isabella, Giana, and Jionni Jr. She also shared that she hopes to have four kids! Wait until you have one first!

Last night’s Survivor started off simple enough…the women have gained momentum, the once unified Manono are beginning to crumble. However, I never thought I would see or hear what I did. Boo to you, Colton. Boo. To. You. And to think, last week I thought we’d be biffles if I ever met you on the street. Shame on me.
The men head back to camp after sending Hairless Matt packing. The remaining Muscles can’t believe the outcasts have aligned. Tarzan and Troyzan decide Bill needs to be next, not because they don’t like him – quite the opposite! Bill is so charming he’s dangerous, potentially eroding the core alliance of five.

When most heard the very strict rules and guidelines laid out for Amber Portwood,via her probation, many assumed she would definitely break one of the rules at one point or another, but very few could have predicted she would be screwing up this quickly.
Just two weeks after a judge finally released her from jail to go live with her grandparents, the Teen Mom star has already broken one of her probation terms by failing to take a drug test.
According to TMZ, Amber, 21, has been doing great since her release, until Monday when she failed to provide a urine sample for her mandatory daily drug testing.
And those familiar with the law will tell you that a failure to provide a sample, automatically counts as a failed drug test, which could mean BIG trouble for Amber.
She was sentenced to serve five years in prison back in January for a drug conviction, with the judge suspending her sentence as long as she followed a very long list of rules and guidelines, which included home detention, a curfew, requirement to get a regular job, and enrollment in a halfway drug house.
Amber is due in court today for her weekly check-in, during which, she will be at the mercy of the judge. Legally the judge could decide to have her begin serving her five-year prison sentence, though that is unlikely to happen.
TELL US – THOUGHTS ON THE LATEST? ARE AMBER’S PROBATION RULES TOO STRICT? SURPRISED SHE’S SCREWING UP THIS EARLY?
