According to a new Entertainment Weekly report, the former Governor of Alaska has no plans to return for a second season of the hit TLC reality show, which averaged over 3.2 million viewers per episode.
EW adds that Sunday night’s two-hour finale will conclude the show. So for what reason is Sarah, who reportedly stood to earn millions from a second season, choosing to walk away from the show?
Well according to TMZ, it all comes down to politics. Doing a second season would pretty much indicate a clear sign that she’s not running for President in 2012. While not doing the show leaves the door wide open for a presidential run.
In fact, sources tell TMZ that TLC “would green light another season of Palin’s show in a second.” Though unlike the EW report, TMZ states Sarah has yet to make a final decision.
Plus Sarah not returning to TLC would likely mean more air time for her fellow network star Kate Gosselin. So the question of the day is…

On the 4th episode of the season, Evelyn and Jen are snubbed when invitations for a posh fund-raiser go out, but they decide to crash the party anyway. Meanwhile, Tami and Jen clash over a seemingly benign remark.
And following last week's dramatic episode that involved the ladies ambushing Gloria Govan during lunch to confront her, Shaunie O'Neal is now speaking out in an attempt to defend her actions. It seems Shaunie got some backlash from fans of the show who were surprised to see her stoop to such a level. Below is part of what Shaunie had to say in a new interview with VH1.
"I regret not following my gut. My gut feeling was not to even go. It wasn’t that important to me if I ever saw Gloria again. It’s not something that even crossed my mind. What happened there and what was said was absolutely natural. It was a natural reaction and I think most women would have reacted the same exact way. And like I said, it was a bad day and it was immature of us, but had people seen the conversation, they’d know that we didn’t go in there for the sole purpose of teasing Gloria about her relationship.I think it’s also important to remember that this beef didn’t come from nowhere – you’ve said things about Gloria, and Gloria has said plenty of negative things about you guys and the show. It says a lot that she’s back on the show. She said she’d never come back and she didn’t want anything to do with it. But she’s back and she asked to come back. Maybe that was what she wanted: those five minutes of bad-ass Gloria. I don’t know."
Allrighty. And finally, it seems Jennifer Williams is following in the steps of her BFF and costar Evelyn Lozada as some very nude photos of her hit the net this week. If you recall, topless photos of Evelyn found their way to the net last April though unlike Evelyn, Jen's photos has both her implants and waxed lady parts on display. You know what they say, birds of the same feather… Though it is interesting that Jennifer and Evelyn gave their costar Royce Reed such a hard time last season for appearing in a raunchy dance contest video. So far, no nude photos of Royce have leaked online.
It is being rumored that Jennifer's photos, taken on a cell phone, were sent to a new lover and not her husband Eric Williams. However, this is just a rumor. Jennifer stated in a recent interview that she and Eric are still together and working on their marriage.

In not so surprising news, TMZ is reporting the Kardashian sisters and their mother Kris Jenner are being sued for a whopping $75 million for reneging on their prepaid debit card deal.
If you recall, the sisters – Kim, Khloe and Kourtney – pulled out of the prepaid Mastercard deal citing they had no idea the card was loaded with hidden, possibly illegal fees after the Attorney General of Connecticut opened an investigation into the card.
Well it seems things don’t quite work that way in the business world as the Revenue Resource Group, LLC filed a lawsuit in Fresno, CA claiming the Keeping Up With The Kardashian stars breached their contract when they pulled out of a deal to be the faces of the controversial prepaid card.
According to RRG, the sisters signed a two-year deal that they should have honored, and ever since they backed out, the company has been hit with a ton of bad publicity.
RRG is claiming the sisters cost them over $75 million in damages. Ai yai yai. The Kardashians have yet to comment on the lawsuit.

On the 11th episode of the season, we learned that Camille has a fondness for prancing around in her bikinis, flirting with married men, and occasionally kissing them on the lips. Oh wait? What? We already knew that? Allrighty, moving right along then.
The episode begins with a gardening scene involving Lisa, hubby Ken and his twin Giggy. But we quickly discover this scene isn’t about Lisa’s garden but about permanent houseguest Cedric. Ken feels Cedric should move out, or at least help out more around the house. Lisa isn’t fully on the same page as she has some maternal feelings towards Cedric. As the husband and wife end their conversation, Ken tries to grab Lisa and she quickly tells him to cut it out. Ken should know by now that sexy times with Lisa are only reserved for birthdays and religious holidays.

Two days after her costar Ramona Singer re-tweeted a video of her teenage daughter rolling up a joint and using the n-word (the video has since been removed from youtube), the NYDailyNews is reporting that Countess LuAnn de Lesseps is “livid.”
According to the site, Luann, star of the Real Housewives of New York City, was in Atlantic City filming a music video for one of her new songs when she started receiving a barrage of phone calls alerting her that the video of her daughter Victoria de Lesseps, 16, existed and that Ramona had re-tweeted. Apparently Luann had zero knowledge of such a video.
Bravo was reportedly on location with LuAnn, who invited her costars Jill Zarin and Kelly Bensimon to appear in the video with her, and wanted to film her reaction to the news. Side note – Rob Shuter of Popeater tweeted yesterday that Luann invited all her costars to appear in the video with her but only Jill and Kelly accepted.
A source, who was involved in the production of the music video, states that a “big ruckus” erupted when phone calls began coming in to the set about the video. The insider overheard Bravo producers debating on how to inform Luann of its existence and of Ramona’s involvement.
Bravo producers wanted Luann to find out about the video on camera, and then discuss the matter with Jill. Luann however refused to make her daughter’s video part of the show’s story line, and insisted the cameras stop rolling. She and Jill then retreated to a hotel room to discuss the matter in private.
As for Ramona, she told the NYDailyNews yesterday that she “sincerely regrets re-tweeting” the video and that she has reached out to Luann and Victoria to apologize. Ramona added that she “loves LuAnn” and “regardless of our catfights on the show, our children are off-limits.”

The 31-year-old Holly’s World star is refreshingly surprisingly honest about her feelings on the engagement between Hugh, 84, and Crystal Harris, 24, making it clear she wasn’t exactly thrilled to hear the news.
“I’m very surprised,” Holly told E!. “I have a lot of different feelings on it. I don’t just feel one way. I kind of didn’t want to put a generic statement out there like ‘Congratulations!’ because I felt everyone would see through that.”
If you recall, Holly ended her 7 year romance with Hugh back in October 2008 after he refused to commit to marrying her or having children with her. The E! article states Hef found out he was unable to have more kids because of a low sperm count though Hef has never publicly stated or admitted this.
We will also get to see more of Holly’s feelings about Hugh and Crystal’s engagement as she recently paid them a visit at the Playboy mansion while the cameras rolled of course, capturing it all for her E! reality show.
“I’d describe it as awkward,” she told UsWeekly Wednesday about the face to face meeting. “I just wanted to get my feelings out about the engagement and I wanted to talk to him first. It’s definitely awkward to feel like you’re confronting someone I’m glad I did it. I wanted to be fair and tell him first.”
The new season of Holly’s World premieres on E! Jan. 23. And finally, just for kicks – below are some before plastic surgery photos of both Crystal and Holly.

The same day TMZ reported Camille’s actions to quit the hit show might simply be a tactic to force Bravo to give her a good edit on the upcoming reunion show, she gave two new interviews to both PEOPLE magazine and the Ellen DeGeneres Show. In her PEOPLE interview, Camille opens up about the backlash she has received since doing the show.
“It’s like a runaway train that’s out of control,” Camille, 42, says of the negative feedback. “I’m going through this divorce in my private life, and this on top of everything else has been really hurtful. I don’t know where it’s coming from.”
And when it comes to the 4 nannies for her two kids controversy, Camille claims it was all estranged husband Kelsey Grammer’s idea. “Even the nanny controversy, I have to laugh about it, because that was Kelsey’s decision to hire the four nannies. And I’m taking all this heat for it,” says Camille. “It’s almost as if, on the show, he had nothing to do with our life together. We were married! We made these decisions together.”
And in her interview with Ellen DeGeneres, scheduled to air today, Camille, who was shown kissing her married friend Nick Stabile on the lips on Thursday’s episode of the BH Housewives, reveals how she discovered Kelsey was cheating on her. And no, it wasn’t through her medium BFF pal Allison DuBois.
“A mutual friend called me and said, ‘I don’t like what he’s doing to you and I don’t like the timing because you’re still in the middle of shooting a reality show.’ And then I called him that night and texted him. No answer from him,” Camille recalls. “I waited for three hours and then he called me and said, ‘I don’t want to be married anymore.’” She adds that she and Kelsey no longer speak, but communicate through text and email.
When it comes to her costar Kyle Richards, who she has repeatedly butted heads with all season, Camille reveals she and Kyle are friends, and get this, she even “loves” Kyle.
“I love Kyle, we do get along,” Camille insists. “We are friends, believe it or not. But at times, you know, our personalities just clash. So there’s one day we love each other and we’re laughing and going to dinner, and then two days after, we’re fighting about something ridiculous.” Let’s hope Kyle got the friendship memo.

UPDATE – In the interview with Ellen, Camille adds that her only reason to do a 2nd season would be to redeem her image.”Right now, as everybody knows, I’m going through a divorce,” she says. “If I would do [another season], it would be to try to change my image – to try to change it around and have people see the other side of me that you don’t see on TV.”
