Although, to be honest, Nene calls everyone in her life both a fake and a hater, so Kandi could have just walked away. Nene is probably calling some Starbucks Batista a “hater” right now, in between throwing wads of dollar bills up in the air.
The conflict appears to have come from the trip Nene, Kandi and Cynthia took at the beginning of the season to Miami (the one where Nene made fun of Kandi’s thighs in her talking head interview). Kandi explains why she was even on the trip to begin with: “Let me tell y’all something about her fake a*s.” Kandi adds, “I didn’t even really want to go on that trip. The only reason why I was even invited on that trip is because I was the only one that was even on speaking terms with her during that time other than Cynthia.”
After the trip, Kandi made a comment to the other housewives women at Kim’s birthday party making fun of Nene’s new found wealth and her constant reminders that she was “rich.”
As to why Nene was so offended (probably because she’s not rich at all), Kandi is similarly confused:”Name something else I said. Even when I was with her in Miami, I made a joke about the being rich thing.”
What was most interesting about Kandi’s comments is that she herself tried to clear the air about the trip in her Bravo blog, but her efforts were thwarted by the powers that be, who deleted Kandi’s explanations for her behavior.
She says, “I said all this in my blog, and then [Bravo] edited my damn blog. So I told them, I said, ‘I’m not blogging no more.’” True to her word, Kandi has not posted a blog since November 15.
In any case, Nene and Kandi will never be best friends, or even close friends. She says, “”She don’t call me. I don’t talk to her outside of the show.” Even during events the ladies are at for filming purposes, Nene stays away: “Even when all of us are together at certain events, half the time, she don’t even speak to me!”
TELL US: ARE YOU ON KANDI OR NENE’S SIDE? DO YOU THINK NENE WILL HAVE ANY FRIENDS LEFT IN ATLANTA? WHY IS NENE SO OBSESSED WITH HER HATERS?
While Danielle Staub was busy allegedly selling fake stories to tabloids and creating Twitter attack dogs out of her followers, she was also battling her former employers to avoid taking her clothes off! And Danielle has won her case, which is a relief, because I can’t think of all that many people who are lining up to see Danielle sans pants!
Last year, with few employment prospects on the horizon following her firing and in desperate need of attention, Danielle inked a deal with the infamous Scores Gentleman’s Club to resurrect her stripping career. Shortly after agreeing to return to the pole, the former Real Housewives of New Jersey star abruptly changed her mind; claiming she was “coaxed” into signing the deal. After walking away, Danielle decided to seek psychological help which obviously did little good.
In response Scores filed a lawsuit against Danielle for $375,000, claiming she was in breach of contract for failing to make agreed upon appearances at the club and on their website.
The lawsuit was just settled in federal court and TMZ has learned that a judge dismissed the suit based on the grounds that Scores failed to show why Danielle had further legal obligation to the club after initially making a strip video, for which she was paid $25k.
The judge claimed Scores drew up a “vague” contract and never explicitly specified Danielle’s additional obligations to the club. While things are temporarily settled, if new evidence comes to light Scores can re-open the case. Were they really expecting to make that much money off Danielle parading around naked? I imagine the interest level is quite low!
In other RHONJ news, Melissa Gorga continues her quest for over-the-hill pop stardom! The 33-year-old mother of three is currently in Chicago to lipsync perform “On Display” at the gay club Spin. Melissa took time out to interview with GoPride.com, where she talked about her family and if she regrets joining the show.
To make a long story short, of course, Melissa has no regrets about exposing her family drama for all the world to see accepting the offer to be on TV. “I have no regrets in signing up for the show,” Melissa states. “My hardest challenge is being a wife, being a mother and being on a reality show. Its not always easy to balance it all but some how I manage to do it. As of right now, I am loving every minute of it.”
“No matter how busy life can get, my family is always my priority. I will never allow what I am doing for a living to change who I am or how I take care of my family. I am very careful about balancing my schedule and how much I will take on in one week. Nothing will ever come before my children.”
While things are wonderful with her immediate family, Melissa and her infamous sister-in-law Teresa Giudice are still on the outs. Despite all the problems, Melissa claims she isn’t harboring any grudges, thanking her background in psychology (say what?!). “I am very receptive to other peoples feelings and why they are feeling that way. I think that’s why I am so quick to forgive and forget,” Melissa explains, adding that, “Sometimes having the pressure of millions of people watching you can make you act or say things that you wouldn’t normally do or say.”
And despite the turmoil in their relationship, Melissa is wishing Teresa the best in her foray on Celebrity Apprentice. “I am happy for her, its a great opportunity and we wish her the best!”
In the meantime Melissa has three new songs coming out in April, right before Season four of RHONJ airs!
THOUGHTS ON DANIELLE’S LAWSUIT BEING SETTLED? DO YOU BELIEVE MELISSA TRULY HAS NO REGRETS ABOUT APPEARING ON THE SHOW?

More Kardashian news to report today as the world continues to witness their quick fall to the bottom, you know, following their undeserved rise to the top of Famewhoreville!
According to reports,Kim Kardashian, alongside her sister Khloe Kardashian and pimpmomager Kris Jenner, pictured above at this week’s Los Angeles Clippers vs. Dallas Mavericks game were mercilessly booed during the game. They family was attending to support Lamar Odom, who now plays for the Mavericks following his trade from the Lakers.
A witness at the game tells the HollywoodLife blog yesterday: “During last night’s (Jan. 18) game between the Clippers and the Mavericks, the Kardashians were put on the jumbotron a few times, and it focused strongly on Kim,” says the source adding, “The fans booed her much worse then they did when Kris Humphries was here on Monday (Jan. 16).”
Indeed, other sources who attended the game reveal Kimmie and her fam were severely booed. Ouch!
Meanwhile, when a report came out earlier this month revealing the Kardashians were planning to expand their crumbling empire by starting a magazine completely dedicated to all things and news Kardashian, many assumed it was a joke, because for starters, the family’s a joke. Well, folks it turns out pimpmomager Kris was actually negotiating a deal with America Media Inc (publisher of Shape, Star, National Enquirer and Radar Online) to start the mag!
Unfortunately for the greedy Kardashian matriarch the deal went sour after she demanded too much kontrol.
The NY Post is reporting the over zealous Kris killed the deal after demanding she get approval on all stories about her family before publication.
Sources tell The Post AMI “balked” at Kris’ demand to have editorial approval over every AMI publication (remember this includes Star Magazine and other mags) to ensure positive wall-to-wall coverage of the overexposed reality family.
The AMI executives stated the obvious which is that no one wants to read all positive “Kardashian krap” being fed to us by the family. Another argument was that the Keeping Up With The Kardashians family already had a television deal with E! and other media outlets who would be getting better scoops on them.
Also, following last week’s Star magazine report about Khloe, which included claims by her former stepmoms that she was not a real Kardashian, pimpmomager Kris finally realized AMI would NOT be bowing down to her krazy demands. “AMI chief David Pecker made it clear that there was no way he was going to tell his editors what stories they could and couldn’t do,” reveals a source.
And just what did an angry Kris Jenner do in turn? She simply decided to pull all Kardashian-related product ads from Star Magazine.
Pimpmomager Kris might want to be careful in the bridges she decides to burn as it apepars the entire world pretty much hates her family at the moment, and are patiently awaiting their demise from our televisions and mags.
As we reported this week, our weekend bombshell report about just how fake this family’s E! reality show is made national headlines via ABC News, GMA and Inside Edition. Even better, the E! network had no comment when contacted to respond to the story.

On Last night’s episode of Project Runway All Stars, the designers were challenged to make a pig look like a lady. Miss Piggy to be exact!
Hostess Angela Lindvall takes the runway and coyly reveals that the designers will be dressing a world-famous celebrity, known for her red carpet style. The air was breathless with anticipation. And a collective sigh of disappointment escaped when our intrepid sewers learned they were actually dressing a Muppet!
The designers are tasked with dressing Miss Piggy for the red carpet to promote the new Muppet movie. At first I was very annoyed at the obvious product play this challenge presented – and really a dress for a puppet? Nonsense! But the way all the designers and the judges approached the challenge, as if Miss Piggy were a real-live lady, was refreshing in an ironic and fun way. It definitely provided some interesting commentary!

Mob Wives star Renee Graziano is taking a break from all the drama the show brings to reveal her battle with depression.
In an interview with HollywoodLife.com, Renee talks about her horrific struggles with the disease that affects so many lives. “I’ve been in therapy on-and-off for the last 20 years. It comes from an abusive relationship when I was 14 with my boyfriend, Frank. No one was aware of the fact that he was abusive in every sense of the word, both physical and emotional.”
Renee’s depression continued to worsen. She states, “It set the ball for me for unhealthy relationships. It got increasingly worse throughout my next two serious relationships and did roll over into my marriage.”
Renee admits, “I also know that I’ve had entitlement issues from a young age because of my father gave me everything. When my father was incarcerated that had something to do with my expectations of people.”
She knows her warning triggers as well. “The first sign for me is I don’t go out of the house. I shut down and hibernate.” She continues, “Depression is like cancer. It’s something we need to pay attention to. It can cause suicide if not dealt with. It is a parent’s responsibility to take care of his or her child, so step up and take charge.” Best wishes to Renee as she continues to spread awareness!
In other Renee news, it seems the reality star is everywhere these days, and well, she should — she’s celebrating life! VH1.com highlights a recent radio interview Renee did with the Breakfast Club where she dishes on a range of topics including her surgery, her own connection to Drita D’Avanzo’s husband Lee D’Avanzo and for the first time discusses the latest with ex-husband Junior Pagan, who was recently exposed as working undercover for the FBI and helping put her father back in jail.
Below are some highlights from Renee’s interview via VH1:
The woman that Lee D’Avanzo cheated on Drita with was none other than Junior’s own girlfriend.
The hole in her back that resulted after her plastic surgery was “the size of a lemon.” (Yikes.)
The doctor who performed her plastic surgery had a clean record… until Renee learned that his records had been concealed. Turns out, a woman who underwent the same surgery Renee had died in his care.
Renee says Carla and her were “on our way to making up,” but Carla made comments about Renee’s son that Renee thinks are unforgivable. Aside from Carla, Renee speaks to everyone else in the cast.
She confirmed that Junior wore a wire in order to cooperate with the Feds, and as a result, Renee’s own father had to return to prison. She also said that she currently does not know Junior’s whereabouts.
Before Junior wore the wire and disappeared, they were making plans to get married for a second time.
And finally, newbie Angela Raiola, better known as Big Ang, has not only won the heart of fans but also the heart of America! And below is an old/before photo of Big Ang before the plastic surgeries! This is a MUST SEE!

According to a report, past Bachelorand Bachelorettecontestants have had it with the show’s super strict rules and are not taking it any more!
The coalition or planned class action lawsuit rather is being led by Jesse Csincsak, winner of the Bachelorette season 4 with Deanna Pappas.
In an interview with CupidsPulse.com, Jesse reveals he and other show contestants have spoken to attorneys and are in discussion to file the lawsuit against the show’s creators Mike Fleiss and Elan Gale.
“Once you’re on the show, they own you,” Jesse said. ”Even when your contract is up, they still interfere in your life and prevent you from promoting other brands and making money.”
Jesse, who does a lot of interviews/blogs posts about the shows and even hosts Bachelor(ette) events, reveals the last straw for him came when Gale contacted his business partners and other companies telling them not to work with him. Jesse adds that the producers have also contacted former other show contestants threatening to blacklist them if they participate in any of his events.
Jesse, who is now married to former Bachelor contestant Ann Lueders, explains how the planned class action lawsuit came about. “I had planned to file my own lawsuit last month but after discussions with numerous people and former Bachelor contestants, we realized that this issue is much bigger than me,” he said.
And in a separate interview with Star magazine earlier this month, the former pro skateboarder referred to Fleiss as a bully. “He thinks he owns me and can keep me from making money. I just want to feed my family,” said Jesse, adding: “I want Fleiss to treat me like he wants to be treated… if he wants me to leave him alone, he needs to leave me alone.”
Yikes, this is certain to get ugly. It, however, appears Jesse and others have a real shot at winning this case as back in 2003, the show’s producers sued former Bachelor Season 4 star, Bob Guiney, accusing him of violating his contract by promoting his cd and music video. Bob ended up winning that case.
It was also reported last month that the show filed a lawsuit against Steve Carbone, who operates the site RealitySteve.com, known for revealing pretty accurate spoilers about the show. The lawsuit alleged Steve was offering contestants financial incentives to break their show contracts.

Lisa VanderFabulous is leaving her drama addled co-stars in the dust. The sparkly, opulent, witty one is apparently getting her own Bravo spin-off and I can’t say I’m surprised.
We heard rumblings of the notion this week after spurned houseboy Cedric Martinez released emails exposing the truth behind his surprise arrival at the SUR launch; claiming Lisa was desperate for fame and in “negotiations” for her own spin-off to center around the staff at SUR.
Now The Huffington Post is seconding the motion and reporting that Lisa is definitely moving onward and upwards in her VanderPumps to be the star of her own show. Oh, yay! And that’s a genuine yay – I loooooove me some Lisa!
“Bravo has taped a pilot with Lisa for her own show and is now deciding if they want to greenlight a full series based around her life and family,” a Bravo insider reveals. “They do not rush into these sorts of things, but if all goes according to plan, Lisa will soon have her own reality show.”
“This would be her dream come true,” a friend of Lisa’s explained. That same friend, who suspiciously sounds more like a friend of Cedric’s, adds, “Initially the producers were not sure they even wanted her to be part of the Beverly Hills cast, but were won over when they met her flamboyant houseguest, Cedric, who moved back in with her once the show started filming, before everything turned bad.”
Frankly, I find it hard to believe producers would pass up Lisa. Cedric seemed like an added bonus to give the show a little more flair. I do wonder if news of a spin-off means Lisa will not be returning to Real Housewives of Beverly Hills next season, and really who would blame her given what a horrible monster that show has become!
The launch of SUR, opened more than a restaurant, it also opened viewer’s eyes to what was going on with Kim Richards. Viewers witnessed Kim’s erratic and emotional behavior; including locking herself in the bathroom, screaming, and accusing her boyfriend, Ken Blumenfeld of controlling behavior bordering on verbal abuse.
Viewers also noticed a concerned Jennifer Gimenez, licensed addiction counselor at the L.A.’s KLEAN Treatment Center and star of Sober House and Celebrity Rehab, standing outside the bathroom door attempting to speak to Kim. Jennifer attended the party as a guest of Brandi Glanville. She describes to WetPaint what really went on that evening and answers what she did to encourage Kim to seek treatment.
Jennifer is speaking out after a virulent reaction from fans on Twitter. Many wondered why Jennifer seemingly would ignore the visibly in need of help, Kim. According to Jennifer, “I did step in, it just didn’t make the final edit.”
In fact the night after the episode aired, Jennifer Tweeted just how disconcerting Kim’s behavior was, “my heart broke watching her …i was scared for her.”
“I saw Kim when she first walked in,” Jennifer describes. “I had been around her before and I’ve seen the way she acts when she’s not herself. I already knew she was sick and suffering. So after she arrived at the Sur party, I kept my eye on her.”
“What I saw broke my heart,” Jennifer adds. “It was so clear that she needed help. Jennifer also explains that Kim actually took several trips to the bathroom and not the one extended trip that was portrayed on the episode.
“She spent a lot of time in the bathroom. She was in there half the night. Finally, I went over there. I waited until Ken had left. He had been hovering around the bathroom door waiting for her and I didn’t think that was helping the situation,” Jennifer recounts.
“So when he walked away, I went over and knocked on the bathroom door. Kim opened it and was like, ‘What do you want?’ and I just said to her, ‘Look, I know you know that I’m sober and I just wanted to say if you need help, I can help you. I can help you tonight, I can help you tomorrow, I can help you anytime you want.’”
“She started to open up to me, but she was so scattered, she wasn’t making a lot of sense. So I gave her my number and she gave me hers and I told her to call me. I told her I would be there for her. I think she believed me. I told her it had nothing to do with the cameras or the show, I just wanted to help her. I think she understood that.”
“But I was thrilled when I heard Kim had checked into rehab,” Jennifer shares. “I’m so grateful she finally sought treatment. If she ever needs a sober friend, I’m here for her 100%.” I’m glad Jennifer was able to support Kim throughout the night while everyone was was embroiled in Taylor Armstrong‘s drama.
