TMZ is reporting Survivor Nicaragua winner Judson Birza aka Fabiowas arrested Wednesday afternoon on suspicion of being under the influence of a controlled substance.
According to law enforcement sources, cops first noticed Fabio riding a skateboard in the street, which is considered illegal. Fabio was then stopped by the cops during which they noticed he was acting strangely.
Ultimately, the cops determined he was under the influence and arrested him. TMZ adds that Fabio was also booked for an unrelated DUI warrant as well as a probation violation.
He was held on $37,000 bail. A new report by TMZ this morning states Fabio posted bail last night and was released, with a white stretch limo coming to pick him up. Nice to see he’s putting his $1 million winnings to good use.
Fabio seems to be denying the charges as he told TMZ, “Dude, this is such bulls**t … I got treated like a baby.”

In the 1 minute, 38 second video clip, Camille claims: “The whole season was set up to make me look bad.” She then gets into it with Kyle, stating, “You bully me all the time and I’m fed up.” Kyle fires back: “Quit using the buzzword of the moment.”
Kyle also brings up Camille’s porn past, defending her friend Faye Resnick by stating doing porn is way more corrupt that doing a tasteful spread in Playboy. Other issues brought up? Kim might have a drinking problem, Kim is asked is the feels bullied by Kyle, and Lisa’s husband Ken can be seen stating he absolutely hates someone, whom we believe is Cedric.
The first part of the reunion showdown airs Jan. 27 with part 2 scheduled to air Feb. 1 at 10 p.m. ET on Bravo.
In other BH news, Camille Grammer continues her press tour, perhaps still hoping to redeem her image, with her latest appearance on Lopez Tonight Tuesday night.
During the interview, Camille tried to backtrack on the comments she made about estranged husband and father of her two children, Kelsey Grammer, when she strongly insinuated he was a cross-dresser. She told George Lopez her comments on the Howard Stern was simply a big joke.
However, TMZ is flat out calling Camille a liar. According to TMZ, it couldn’t be a joke because Camille has also shared the same exact information with some members of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills cast. People from the show tell TMZ that Camille was very bitter over the divorce, and would tell anyone who would listen that Kelsey loved to wear women’s clothing. Not surprising as Camille has been shown being very vindictive on the Bravo hit show.
The preview clip of the reunion is below -

More details are now coming out about the fight and what is clear is that what Bravo showed on TV was just a tip of the iceberg. In her latest Bravo blog, Kandi Burruss, who witnessed the entire fight, reveals some new details about what really went down. Excerpts from Kandi’s blog below -
“They left out some footage from that Channel 11 clip of NeNe. During the clip the news anchor pulled out flowers and gave them to NeNe saying we decided to give you flowers since we’re not paying you any money. That’s why Kim said NeNe is an intern at 11 Alive… The first part of that argument was like an hour and a half. I don’t see how people can argue that long. Then they calmed down for a second and started back up for another 45 minutes. That’s too much… The bus ride alone could have been a whole episode.”
Arguing over 2 hours? Yikes. And in a new interview with TV Guide, Nene Leakes continues to feel she was the victim in this latest fight, despite being the one who started and escalated the argument. In the interview, which she gave on Tuesday (yesterday), Nene admits the fight wasn’t about Sweetie, apologizes to her fans and family, blames it all on Kim and also blames Bravo and her costars for not being there for her during what she called a difficult time in her life.
“”It’s an embarrassing thing to see as a mother and as an adult,” said Nene in the interview, apologizing to her fans while slamming Kim. “I apologize to my viewers and fans, and to my children and family and friends who love and care about me. …I apologize to them for them having to see me stoop to such a trashy level. When you fool with trash, it can get all over you.”
More excerpts from Nene’s interview below -
TVGuide.com: What was going on with you at that time that?
Leakes: It was a very, very bad time. I was not healthy at the time, and [Leakes' husband] Greg and I were in a real bad place in our marriage. I really shouldn’t have been on the bus. Everyone that I worked with knew that I shouldn’t have been on the bus — so, they probably wanted me to be on the bus for those reasons.
TVGuide.com: Did you feel obligated to stick up for Sweetie?
Leakes: I’m not sticking up for Sweetie, I’m just saying I couldn’t take it anymore. When I entered the bus, everybody was complaining. They only show me complaining, but everyone complained… Kandi, Kandi’s backup singers, everyone. Yes, Sweetie wants to be talked to that way, fine, but it’s offensive when you around a group of people to just sit there and say those words all day long. By the time Kim said Don Juan and Sweetie should stay at the house, I was like, “No! They can’t!”
TVGuide.com: Because you visited specifically to watch her and Kandi perform on tour, right?
Leakes: Right. But being friends with Kim, if you knew her, you’d know you have to walk on egg shells. She’s always offended. Mind you, she can say anything she wants to say to you or about you — but you can’t say nothing about her or who she’s dating. She can ask you all the questions she wants, and make all the jokes and comments she wants, but you can’t do the same with her. Going into a relationship with her is one-sided. (Doesn’t this sound like Nene describing herself?)
TVGuide.com: Is there something about Kim that’s made you angry in general? You seemed to be more angry this season…
Leakes: I don’t know what show you’re watching, but I think I’ve had a good season. You’ve seen for the past several episodes me working at 11 Alive. Early on in this season, there was a clip of me and Dwight going at it, and one of me and Greg, and the time when I talked to my son, but those things happened awhile ago.
TVGuide.com: But are you considering [returning to the show]?
Leakes: Nope. Right now, I’m just not interested in doing a fourth season. I don’t know if I would change my mind later. With everything going on in my life, I can’t work with a bunch of women who are non-supportive. I can’t work with a bunch of women who don’t support one another. I just can’t work like that anymore. For my own sanity.
Interesting she is now apologizing following all the backlash. And finally, a fan also asked Nene yesterday why she wanted to leave the show, she replied, “No more time 4 DRAMA.” Oh the irony.
Following Nene’s comments that she no longer wishes to do the show, a lot of fans are wondering if this is simply a negotiation ploy though after reading her latest interviews, I’m starting to think she is simply believing her own hype at the moment. With her upcoming appearance on the Celebrity Apprentice, I’m getting that she feels she no longer needs the RHOA. It will be interesting to see how this all plays out.

In the interview from Playboy’s upcoming February issue, Lamar, 31, reveals the biggest surprise about his wife of over a year was her IQ. “I was kind of surprised at how intelligent she was,” said Lamar. “You don’t know what to expect. Next thing I know I’m spending every day with her. We just hit it off.”
If you recall, the Keeping Up With The Kardashians stars tied the knot back in September 2009 after only dating for a few weeks. According to Lamar, he simply found no reason to delay his happiness. “It was quick,” he says. “I guess that just added to the speculation – ‘Why can’t they wait?’ I didn’t want to wait.”
Lamar also reveals that while the old him was afraid of the responsibility of even having a girlfriend, he is now a changed man thanks to Khloe. “With her I was like, ‘If I do what I normally do, I’m going to lose her,’” states Lamar. “‘And if I lose her, I think it’s going to hurt a lot.’ Right then and there I knew. We were together every day.” We can all let out a collective aww though we wonder how Liza Morales, the mother of Lamar’s 2 kids and girlfriend of over a decade must be feeling about this new interview.
In other Khlomar news, it seems Khloe is oh so over being a red head as she is now back to being a brunette just nine days after the drastic color change.
“I had to dye my hair back to brown,” Khloe announced on her twitter page. “I love being a brunette don’t get me wrong but red was SOO much fun! I was only red for a like a week :(.”
So why the quick change of heart? According to UsWeekly, it all has to do with Khloe’s new E! reality show – Khloe and Lamar. “Khloe starts filming her show with Lamar [Odom] and E! wanted her to stay consistent all season,” a source tells UsMagazine. “It was a test run. She loved it.”
Allrighty, a photo of Khloe back as a brunette is below -

While the second season ofHolly Madison’s E! reality show doesn’t premiere until Jan. 23, one thing we will be seeing this season will be the former Playmate being asked to lose weight.
Yes, Holly was told she needed to lose a few pounds by the producers of her Las Vegas burlesque Peepshow. In a preview clip obtained by RadarOnline, “I think you definitely need to tone up,” is what Nick Kenkel told Holly, who is required to perform partially nude during the nighttime show. “I don’t know if it’s the weight, but your body right now has to be sort of athletic,” he added.
The 32-year-old Holly World’s star tells RadarOnline she was shocked by the news. “I always thought I looked fine. It was a shock to me when they told me to lose weight. I just feel like I market myself as a sex symbol, I don’t market myself as a fitness model or a professional dancer so I feel like the way I look is fine!” said Holly.
So is she going to lose the weight? “I’m still up in the air over what to do. I feel like I changed my eating habits to really healthy. I’ve lost a few pounds. I’m still getting there and deciding if I even want to lose weight.”
In other Holly news, she told FoxNews over the weekend that she is open to posing nude in Playboy again. “I wouldn’t mind doing Playboy again,” said Holly. “But only if I had creative control.”
Holly also reveals what we can expect from the 2nd season of her reality show. “This season is really dramatic and holds a lot of character development for everyone on the show,” she hinted. “Troublemakers come to town, so there’s a lot of conflict.”
Season two of “Holly’s World” premieres Jan. 23 at 10:30 p.m. on E! Bikini Photos of Holly taken during the 4th of July below -

According to a new report by RadarOnline, Kelsey, who allegedly enjoys dressing up in lingerie and high heels for his sex life, once took raunchyphotos of his other unusual proclivities that ended up being seen by the media.
Camille A source tells RadarOnline that not only does Kelsey stand to lose 50% of his reported $120 million fortune to Camille, but he should also be worried about some of the secrets he’s shared with her coming out. Why? Well apparently Camille has the ability to write a tell-all book about Kelsey, and if she chooses to, she’ll have plenty of material to use.
“It’s absolutely true that Kelsey wears women’s underwear, and lingerie,” Camille a source told Radar. “Camille never understood why he did. However, that is just the tip of the iceberg of what she knows about Kelsey.”
The “source” adds, “She knows things about Kelsey that would shock his fans. Camille has chosen to take the high road during the divorce proceedings, but she is getting to the point where she is considering setting the record straight once and for all about her marriage to Kelsey. There is no pre-nup agreement that would prohibit her from writing a tell-all book. She was a devoted wife to him.”
Apparently cross-dressing is nothing new to Kelsey. “Kelsey has been into women’s clothing for a long time,” the source said adding that he is not gay, but has led a wild life and pushed a lot of boundaries.
“Kelsey was heavily into cocaine during his Cheers days. He was so out of control. He would do practically anything. He cleaned up his act later… But sexually he pushed limits. He was into, let’s just say, having women treat him like a woman in terms of what was done in the bedroom.”
The alleged photos of Kelsey involved him having sex in women’s clothing along with some photos of his toys. The reason the photos were never published? They “were too hardcore.”
And oh yeah, the “source” adds that “Kelsey should give her what she deserves in the divorce settlement, he should give her whatever she is asking for or else.” Just kidding, we added the ‘or else’ part of course though everything something about this article has Camille’s grubby little fingerprints all over it. Let’s just hope Kelsey’s new fiance Kayte Walsh knows what she’s signing up for.

According to Popeater, Bravo has given Simon, husband of Alex McCord, his own spinoff webcast which will focus more on his everyday life away from the drama that is ‘Housewives.’ But fret not as Simon will continue to appear on the NYC Housewives.
“I’m delighted to get a mini spinoff from ‘Housewives’ and so glad I didn’t have to get pregnant or married to do so!” Simon tells Popeater referencing Bethenny Frankel. “Seriously, Alex, the boys and I have a lot of fun living in Brooklyn, and these webisodes give viewers a chance to see all four of us away from the drama of ‘Housewives.’”
So what can we expect from Simon’s web show? Simon promises that fans will get to see him “shopping, cooking, accidentally injuring myself and attempting to overcome one of life’s toughest afflictions.”
The new yet to be titled spinoff is slated to air during the new season of the Real Housewives of New York, which debuts February 15 on Bravo.
