Oh, so sad it’s officially the last day ofFlipping Out, but do not despair because Jeff and the gang will be back sooner than later with a new Bravo reality show called “Interior Therapy” and I need to get my audition tape made ASAP. Imagine – spending a week with Jeff, Jenni, and Zoila – that’s better than free reign of Lisa Vanderpump’s closet!
Jeff and Andy break down what’s been going on in the land of Lewis since the show stopped filming and apparently Jeff has only seen Sarah twice and Trace once since they were let go of JLD. Jeff confirms he is in his new redecorated home, his income has doubled since Gage convinced him to cut the dead weight, he is definitely planning kids sooner than later, and he is now representing Zoila as her manager – he’ll be getting 90% and she still only gets free room and board. Jeff was much softer during this interview and had so many humble (for him!) moments where he admitted how much the people in his life meant to him – like when he said he couldn’t live without Gage, Zoila, and Jenni. It was nice.

Following the surprise announcement on theBachelor Pad finale that his ex-fiance was now engaged to her new beau, Michael Stagliano is speaking out on what he calls a humiliating moment.
On Monday’s airing of the Bachelor Padreunion, Michael was brought out on stage and told his ex Holly Durstwas enaged to fellow contestant Blake Julian. Immediately following the reunion taping last week in Los Angeles, both Michael and Holly spoke to PEOPLE.
“I was caught off guard, humiliated. I know neither Holly nor Blake wanted it to go down like that,” said Michael. “I’m now even more thankful for the talk we had two weeks ago, which provided closure I didn’t have before. If we hadn’t had that that, it would have been so much worse tonight. I might have just walked off stage.”
Holly, who actually got engaged days before the reunion taping, goes on to blame ABC and the Bachelor Pad producers for setting up Michael.
“I was really upset,” said Holly. “I was thinking, “Well, at least I will be able to tell him before the show so he isn’t blindsided.” But I wasn’t allowed to speak to him prior to walking out on stage. As soon as I sat down, I whispered that I needed to talk badly and then the bomb was dropped almost immediately. He was blindsided. That was the lowest thing they could have done for ratings.”
Umm Holly, you had days to tell him but you didn’t! Michael however keeps it classy when he reveals he is actually happy for Holly despite all.
Michael states, “We were engaged and therefore I will always care about and love her so it makes me happy when she is happy. I wish we could have been happy together but we’re always going to care about and love each other. I have no reason to be mad at Holly or Blake. You can’t help who you fall for.”
Holly adds, “If we had walked out there hating each other, I don’t think we would have gotten as many votes. He’s the best guy and I can’t wait for him to find the right girl.”
Meanwhile Bachelor insider Reality Steve is reporting that Holly’s fiance Blake got the $25,000 Neil Lane diamond engagement ring for free from ABC in exchange for allowing them to tape the proposal. Classy. Holly will reportedly have to return the three carats cushion-cut diamond ring in the case that the engagement gets called off.
A picture of Holly’s engagement ring is below!

On last night’s episode of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, the ladies hit the slopes in Colorado. Lisa and Taylor continue their passive aggressive feud to dominate Kyle’s friendship by trying to out-mean girl each other. And Kyle and Kim try to make some headway in their badly tarnished relationship.
Kyle is moving to a new 7,000 square foot house and she feels this is meant to be her house – in fact she stalked it because she feels connected to its energy. Too bad the house couldn’t get a restraining order! Kyle shows Portia a beautifully framed portrait of Kyle and Mauricio on their wedding day and despite a recent blind item hinting that they may not be so in love, I hope that’s not the case! Kyle’s bestie and decorator, Faye Resnick (looking as be-nipped and tucked as ever) shows up to help the Umansky’s move and make some decisions about where Mauricio’s pool table can go – only in the garage since furniture is more important than man cavedom. Faye discovers amongst Kyle’s possessions an enormous self-portrait. Here’s hoping she’s not arrogant enough to hang that up on the walls! Yikes!

When it comes to Bethenny (she is facing class action lawsuits over claims that her Skinnygirl drinkline is not all natural as claimed), Simon comes to her defense… sorta. “For me, there’s truth in advertising,” he told E! News. “If you’re upfront about it, there wouldn’t be scandal. I don’t think she was hiding anything at all, [but] once she sold it off, she lost a little control.”
Alex chimed in adding that Bethenny will get through it, though she is obviously “pretty peeved.”
When asked if they will be returning for another season of the RHONY, the duo echoed previously reported sentiments, which is that Bravo has yet to inform them of their decision. “We honestly don’t know,” Simon said. “You know as much as we do. We find out when everyone else does. It’s up to Bravo.”
Silex also touched on Russell Armstrong’s suicide, praising Bravo for handling it well. “We watched the first episode of Beverly Hills and I met him,” Alex stated. “There’s no great way for them [Bravo] to handle it.” Simon added, “It’s such a private thing. I thought Bravo handled it as well as they could… They either have to cancel the show or face it head on. They faced it head on.”
In other news, it seems to be pouring for Bethenny Frankelas just days after the class action lawsuits were filed against her, RadarOnline uncovered legal documents about the new home she purchased in TriBeCa, New York.
According to Radar, the docs reveal Bethenny, 40, put down $2.7 million on the four-bedroom condo and borrowed $2.3 million from Bank of America — in the form of a 30-year mortgage. The site then went on to question what happened to her reported $120 million payout if she’s taking out a mortgage. Radar also pointed out that Bethenny’s former assistant Molly was the one who signed all the paperwork.
Gossip columnist Rob Shuter then tweeted, “Strange! @Bethenny is in $2.3 million in debt! Got mortgage on her new apt. Where is her $120 million?” This led to outrage from Bethenny fans who defended her on twitter.
Bethenny fan @AtlantaSue2 tweeted: “@NaughtyNiceRob @Bethenny Ridiculous. A mortgage isn’t considered bad debt. It’s an investment. You look foolish tweeting this crap!” In fact, Bethenny herself then replied, “You guys are so smart. People are morons. @AtlantaSue2.”
When all is said and done, it appears taking out the $2.3 million mortgage might have been for tax benefits. Plus even though Bethenny reportedly earned over $100 million for the sale of her drinkline, it’s more than likely most of that amount will come in future payouts and/or when incentives are reached.

On last night’s Basketball Wives: L.A., Jackie logged by far the most screen time, some of Draya’s past was revealed, and while Imani can’t stomach strippers, she sure does enjoy a good sex shop.
We resume with the ladies back at Draya’s BET party. After too much booty popping on Malaysia Pargo, Draya Michele comes to the conclusion that Malaysia might not get her sense of humor. Realizing it’s “Knock a B*tch Out” time, Malaysia takes the high road and heads home so as to avoid another situation like the one she had earlier with Laura Govan. That’s all well and good with Draya as she now is the prettiest b*tch in the group. Oh, okay.

According to a new report, Teen Mom star Amber Portwood continues to be at risk for a relapse after two months in a California rehab facility where she received treatment for depression following a suicide attempt.
Sources close to Amber, 21, reveal since returning home to Indiana, the fragile single mother has run straight back into trouble aka the arms of her baby daddy Gary Shirley.
“I told her to take it slow with Gary and not jump into anything,” Amber’s brother, Shawn Portwood, tells In Touch Weekly. “But they’re back together.”
In Touch adds that while Amber was in recovery, Gary went wild. Often leaving their 2-year-old daughter Leah in the care of his mother, while he partied every night “He was always drinking and hooking up with other girls,” a pal reveals. “He says he loves Amber, but he really doesn’t act like it!”
Shawn however adds that despite getting back with Gary, Amber is trying to improve her life. “She has enrolled back in school and is taking control. She’s at peace,” Shawn says.
In other news, Amber’s fellow troubled teen mom Jenelle Evans received some good news days ago.
While she was found guilty of a misdemeanor charge for simple affray (fighting in public), the 19-year-old managed to escape jail as she was instead given a suspended sentence of 30 days, meaning she stays out of jail unless she violates probation within the next 12 months.
In addition to that, she’ll also have to pay a small fine of $100, attend anger management classes and do 24 hours of community service.
Following her court appearance on Friday, Jenelle kept it ever so classy by tweeting, “F— yes. !!!!! I WINNNNNNN ;).” This entire court case stemmed from a videotaped fight that occurred back in March during which Jenelle beat the crap out of her former friend Britany Truett.
A new episode of Teen Mom airs tonight on MTV at 10/9c.

She wrote, “I love Teresa from housewives even tho she did say rude things about me . Her kids are adorable. #myfuturekids.” Snooki is referring to Teresa’s previous comments in which the pot she bashed the Jersey Shore cast and stated she wouldn’t want her daughters to grow up to be like them.
Back in January, Teresa stated, “No, I don’t want them to act like the Jersey Shore kids… I hear that they sleep around. I don’t want my daughters sleeping around.” Ouch!
