Even though the cameras have stopped rolling the ladies of MTV’s Teen Mom franchise continue to keep our interest piqued with their crazy drama and latest schemes!

Maci Bookout just can’t make up her mind — Ryan or Kyle, Kyle or Ryan, Ryan or Kyle… Despite splitting from son Bentley’s father, ex-boyfriend Ryan Edwards, and moving on with live-in love Kyle King, Maci just can’t seem to move on! “Maci clearly still has feelings for Ryan,” a source reveals to Star Magazine. “And Kyle can’t be too happy about it.”

Maci insists she is over her ex and has previously stated: “I want him to be happy because he excels when he’s happy.” But she seems to have changed her opinion now that Ryan is talking marriage with his new girlfriend, bikini model, Dalis Connell! Perhaps Maci only wants Ryan to be happy with her! Conflict of Interests alert!

“Maci has been pretty jealous,” alleges a source that purports to be close to both couples. “Dalis feels like it could be because she and Ryan may get married before Maci does or maybe because Maci is not getting Ryan’s attention anymore.” They should just have a double wedding and call it a day.

Regardless of what Maci thinks Ryan and Dalis are determined to make their relationship work. “Their relationship is definitely true love,” the source explains. “They’re completely supportive of each other.”

In other Teen Mama drama, Teen Mom 2 star Kailyn Lowry is pulling a Toddlers In Tiaras by having her two-year-old son, Isaac model in the clothing line she created for him just in time for the premiere of Teen Mom 2!

Yes, Kailyn is now a children’s clothing designer at the helm of the Isaac Elliott Collection by Little Miss Cupcake, a line of toddler and baby formal wear. Photos of Isaac modeling some of the wear is below. Photos of the new collection are below!

Kailyn plans to use sales of her clothing as extra money while she earns her Bachelor’s Degree in Social Work and is apparently getting a lot of positive feedback over the collection!

“I’m overwhelmed with all the sweet things people have been saying,” she said on Twitter today. “Thank you all for the support. Isaac & I love you all. :o)” Good for you Kailyn – keep up the good work!

Admittedly, I didn’t think I would get as caught up in Dancing With The Stars’ final three as I actually did. Embarrassingly, I didn’t think I’d be this happy for Rob Kardashian finally doing something that didn’t involve his sisters, and he’s clearly improved tenfold throughout the season. Don’t get me wrong… I still love J.R. Martinez and I have serious respect for Ricki Lake. At least I won’t be (too) disappointed if my favorite doesn’t win the “coveted” mirror ball trophy!

As to be expected, there was a lot of fluff on last night’s finale show, but that always happens when ABC tries to drag out forty-five minutes of content into two hours of programming. It’s almost as bad as the engagement episode of any Bachelor/Bachelorette season. Each of the final three’s Monday performances are highlighted. Rob goes into the final night three points ahead of both Ricki and J.R. Rob and J.R. both managed to wrangle perfect 30s as well. Before getting into tonight’s portion of the competition, Lady Antebellum (love!) performs a song off their latest album.

Each contestant will hit the dance floor one more time to perform what they believe to be their strongest dance of the season. First, Ricki and partner Derek Hough perform their tango. Len Goodman calls it one of the most memorable dances of any season, while Bruno Tonioli proclaims it “unforgettable.” He’s so dramatic! Carrie Ann Inaba continues with the love fest and Ricki seems to have had a very strong finish.

Rob and Cheryl Burke are dancing the foxtrot at Rob’s request. He wants to improve upon the dance from the first time they performed it. As the Kardashian Klan watches on – Kris is even krying! — he proves he really has come a long way in this competition. Rob has a (very) minor slip-up… so minor, in fact, that I had to rewind to see it after host Tom Bergeron congratulated him on his “nice recovery.” Carrie Ann says she’s so proud of Rob, while Len gushes — yes, GUSHES! — about how Rob does some of the best footwork of any male contestant he’s seen on the show. Ever. That is quite some praise!

J.R. and Karina Smirnoff decide to revisit their jive, although they must tweak it a bit to appease the judges critiques of the dance the first time around. Carrie Ann calls him a “catalyst of joy” before citing his sloppiness in the middle of the routine. She also professes to miss the lift they eliminated from the dance because she penalized them for it their first go-round. Huh? Len spends most of his speech recognizing the wonderful band and singers, but seems to feel the same way everyone else feels about J.R. You can NOT smile when you see him dance. Bruno exclaims that he “LOVED IT!”

For the judges, Ricki is in the top spot earning 30 points, with J.R. garnering 28, and Rob in third with 26. After adding the point to Monday’s scores, Ricki leads, Rob is in second and J.R. is in third, although only one point separates each competitor from the next. In another filler moment that lasts far too long, a blooper reel of the judges is shown. Seriously, this whole finale really only needs to last an hour.

One couple will be eliminated before the final dance of the evening. After lots of dramatic pauses, WHAT? Ricki and Derek are eliminated. I did NOT see that one coming. She’s been such a fan and judge favorite. J.R. and Rob look totally shocked. I swear Rob has tears in his eyes. True to form, Ricki goes out like the total class act that she is.

After highlighting some of the season’s shocking moments, some of the first “stars” to be voted off return to dance again. Metta World Peace and Elisabetta Canalis perform with their partners followed by Kristin Cavallari. Chyna Phillips returns for another shot at the dance that sent her home after she froze on stage and forgot her routine. The always entertaining Carson Kressley vogues, and Nancy Grace shakes her medieval groove thang. Chaz Bono and David Arquette take to the dance floor again before another performance from Lady A, singing their hit Need You Now. A less sour Hope Solo and a less combative (I hope) Maksim Chmerkovskiy dance again as well.

It’s time for the final dance for J.R. and Rob, competing with a quick instant Samba to unknown music. J.R. and Karina dance first with a strong routine, but Rob and Cheryl are equally (dare I say more?) fierce. Len gives a rare standing ovation for both couples. Bruno believes both contestants are “brilliant” while Carrie Ann declares them both as winners. The judges give three perfect 10s to both J.R. and Rob. It’s all up to the viewer votes now! I love that Rob and J.R. seem to have become really good friends. After a long and entertaining season, the mirror ball trophy goes to…

J.R. Martinez!!! Woohoo!! I am beyond thrilled. What an amazing guy and I am so happy to see Karina’s first DWTS victory.

WHAT DID YOU THINK OF THE FINALE? DO YOU THINK THE RIGHT PERSON WON? HOW GREAT WAS IT TO SEE THE COMRADERY AMONG THE CONTESTANTS?

On last night’s episode of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills I came to the conclusion that I am just so burned out on the Taylor, Taylor, Taylor show. And this show in general. Perhaps it’s a symptom of my profession that I watch too much Housewives! ;-)

Things pick up where they left off with Tea Party Part Deux and Camille confronting Taylor about her allegations of abuse. Camille is confused about how Taylor expects her friends to be all ecstatic about her husband when she is telling them he abuses her, yet no one sees any signs of said abuse – physical or otherwise.

Taylor calls Camille “uncool” for outing her marital issues, but Camille seems nonplussed and continues asking Taylor about the inconsistencies going on. Then, Camille pulls a total Dynasty diva moment and storms out! I wish there would be an exciting and frivolous Dynasty-style catfight on this show already. Full-scale hair pulling, sequined gown ripping, destroying of manicured lawns, all out bitch-queen catfight. Can we get on scripting this, Bravo? kthx!

They say when it rains, it pours and unfortunately for the Kardashian family, it has been a-stormin for the past three weeks. Well, with the exception of Rob Kardashian!

Since Kim Kardashian, 31, filed for divorce three weeks ago, the family has experienced a public backlash like no other in addition to turmoil in the family due to the said backlash.

Fast forward to today and it doesn’t appear things will be looking up for Kimmie Kakes anytime soon. According to the upcoming issue of Life & Style magazine, out on news stands tomorrow, Kris Humphries aka Kim’s husband of 72 days, is now planning to sue her to the tune of $10 million!

“Kris has a legal team investigating his options,” an insider tells Life & Style. “He’s claiming his role on Kourtney & Kim Take New York is bigger than he was told, and that’s why he wants more money. But Kris is also suing because he’s really worried about how badly he’s going to be portrayed on the series.”

Acc0rding to Life & Style, Kris, 26, is mostly worried about some explosive footage of him “bullying” Kim’s best friend Jonathan Cheban. “Midway through the season, Kris starts bullying Kim’s best friend, Jonathan Cheban, about his sexuality,” shares a pal of Kim. “Jonathan isn’t gay, but Kris accuses him of being gay and criticizes him for it in a really homophobic way. Jonathan is really upset.”

The source close to Kim claims the “bullying” made her very upset. “Kris used the word ‘gay’ as an insult, to try and hurt Jonathan,” an E! insider tells Life & Style. “He’s the lowest of the low bullying someone like this.”

Kris has now reportedly retained lawyer Lee Hutton III and is trying his hardest to prevent his worst moments from being aired on TV.

However, Kris’ family and friends are coming to his defense maintaining that most of Kris’ appearance on Kourtney & Kim was scripted, including scenes in which he questions Jonathan’s sexuality. They also remain adamant that Kris is not homophobic. “Little did Kris know that he was being set up,” his father, William Humphries, tells Life & Style. “Kris got used — 100 percent used.”

Meanwhile, Hills alum and Dancing With The Stars contestant Kristin Cavallari is now taking some shots at the Kardashian family! Kristin graces the current issue of Life & Style magazine with a headline that reads: “Betrayed! Scott’s affair with Kristin.”

The article claims that while Kourtney Kardashian and Scott Disick were on a break two years ago (mind you this was even before Kourtney got pregnant) Scott and Kristin hooked up. The mag went on to claim Kourtney, reportedly friends with Kristin at the time, feels so betrayed and therefore banned Scott from stepping foot on the DWTS set this season due to Kristin being a contestant. And yes, that whole story sounds extremely ridiculous to us as well!

“Scott and Kristin hooked up in Las Vegas [in February 2009] during a time that he was on a break from Kourtney,” an insider told Life & Style. “Kourtney was furious. She and her sisters have called Kristin ‘the whore bag’ ever since.” Oh the nerve of any Kardashian calling anyone else a “whore bag!”

Well, Kristin not only denies the ridic report but also fires back at the Kardashians as she believes they leaked the story to the press in other to take some heat off Kimmie and the backlash she is receiving. Smart girl that Kristin!

“I just think, what convenient timing for them with their show [Kourtney & Kim Take New York] premiering next week. With everything that’s going on for Kim, I feel like they’re trying to take the heat off her,” Kristin said on The Billy Bush Show syndicated radio show.

Kristin continued, “When there’s a big story like that, they always call you and ask if you want to comment and clearly none of them denied it… It’s disrespectful to me and Jay [Cutler, Cavallari's ex-fiance who she just got back together with], and I think it just says a lot about their character.” Ouch!

Finally, even PETA is getting in on the Trash a Kardashian month as they recently launched a billboard campaign against Kimmie! Us Weekly reports that on the billboard, scheduled to go up in early December, a fur-clad Kimmie sits opposite a sad shot of baby foxes. “Kim: These Babies Miss Their Mother,” reads the sign. “Is She on Your Back?” A picture of the PETA billboard is below!

Meanwhile, Kim made another public appearance yesterday (what happened to staying out of the spotlight?) as she and her family were in the Dancing With The Stars audience to cheer for Rob. A picture of the Kardashian clan is below -

Bethenny Frankel has been the subject of constant controversy as of late; it seems every other day she is embroiled in some sort of issue causing a media tail-spin! Needless to say — it’s been quite a year for diet drink maven and wannabe mogul.

Bethenny has made no secret of her desire to leave reality TV behind in the hopes of landing her own talk show. Recent reports stated Mama Frankel had shot a pilot for her own show, but was having trouble hooking a network even going so far as to hire a coach to soften the abrasive, no-nonsense style that made her famous in the reality world.

The Bethenny Ever After star’s dreams of being the next Oprah were apparently closer than we all thought, as The Hollywood Reporter is revealing NBC was jonesing to pick up some new talk show blood and Bethenny made a short list of contenders that included Survior host Jeff Probst and Ricki Lake (formerly of talks show’s pasts, currently of Dancing With The Stars).

The Hollywood Reporter describes that launching a talk show is a precarious situation for a network with all the competition from already established shows, thus they must carefully weigh who will gain the most traction with viewers nationwide. Basically, a show must stay in a holding tank and be demoed across a variety of markets before it is “cleared” in the “three-quarters of the country” needed to garner a launch. Once it gets a “launch” a network will back it and air the show.

“If NBC stations pass on her Warner Bros. Telepictures’ show, the former Real Housewife of New York could find it difficult to get the clearances she needs to launch despite support from Ellen DeGeneres,” THR explains of Bethenny’s predicament.

Well, unfortunately for Bethenny it seems NBC made the decision to go with Jeff’s show instead, while Ricki’s show is headed for the Tribune group of stations that helped launch Anderson Cooper’s now popular talk show. “This shuffle is probably bad news for Frankel who must now struggle to find enough carriage to make a launch likely,” the article alleges. Currently there is no expected launch for Bethenny’s show as she is still waiting to be picked up by major networks.

And there is more bad news for the reality star resulting from continued scrutiny over the contents of her “all natural” Skinnygirl Margarita! The New York Post is reporting an expanded lawsuit from former fans of the product, taking issue with the label’s assertion that the cocktail is concocted using “100 percent blue agave tequila.”

Christopher Rapcinsky and Erin Baker, currently taking action against the brand, have amended their $10M class action lawsuit for having “falsely claimed the drink was ‘all natural’ with ‘no preservatives’.”

Upon further investigation into the tequila used to produce the beverage the duo discovered it was actually “a lower quality and purity tequila by-product called mixto — essentially a mash of tequila and some unknown additives (rarely organic) which may comprise as much as 49 percent of the final mixed liquor.” Blech. All-natural, say what?

The duo’s lawyer, Tom Mullaney stated: “100 percent blue agave is not stuff people mix.” Additionally, he says comparing the mix to pure tequila is like “comparing Thunderbird wine to a fine Chianti. They’re both wine, but very different.” I’ll let you wine connoisseurs argue the veracity of his statement, as I’m an $8 a bottle kind of a girl.

The suit isn’t entirely blaming Bethenny (who is not named as a defendant) for the misconceptions, as it notes the discrepancies began occurring after Beam Global acquired the brand and the label changed at some point to say the drink was made “with premium Blue Agave Tequila,” removing the “’100 percent’ reference,” which the suit claims is “highly misleading.”

“Only time and pretrial discovery will tell what was really in the ‘tequila’ that went into the phony ‘all-natural’ margarita. What is certain is the fact that consumers would not have purchased Skinnygirl Margarita had they known it was manufactured with inferior mix to tequila,” the suit insists.

Beam Global is fighting back calling the suit “frivolous” and defending the label’s claims that the cocktail is made with premium tequila. “We will defend our case vigorously, and we are fully confident we will prevail,” the company’s rebuttal stated.

Bethenny’s reps have declined to comment on this latest attack on her product and she has not confronted the controversy via Twitter, opting instead to promote more products in the Skinnygirl line-up. Perhaps all the drama surrounding Bethenny might have something to do with networks passing on her talk show?

THOUGHTS ON BETHENNY’S LATEST DILEMNAS? ARE YOU SURPRISED HER TALK SHOW HAS NOT BEEN PICKED UP – WOULD YOU WATCH? THOUGHTS ON THE LAWSUIT: FRIVOLOUS OR WITH MERIT?

John Salley’s teeth may be a tad whiter, his smile a bit wider and his demeanor even more subdued than normal, but there’s no mistaking his presence means that there is a Basketball Wives reunion in the works, this time L.A. style. He introduces the ladies, and apparently Gloria Govan and Jackie Christie missed the hair memo. Why Maylaysia, why? Your hair looks so good straight! I also have to give credit to a reader that commented in an earlier thread that Laura Govan looks like a long-lost member of the Jackson family. Spot on, Super Reality Junkie!

The first issue at hand is the season opening fight when Laura and Malaysia come to blows after repeated belittling and “hood-rat calling” on the part of Ms. Govan. I still love that Malaysia took off her shoes for the brawl. John recaps the fight, saying that Malaysia “pushed Jackie over like she only weighed a hundred pounds.” Oh no he didn’t! He questions Gloria who says she got her information regarding the tiff from none other than Jackie.

If you’re a fan of Watch What Happens Live, you’re in luck because Bravo has just announced the show will air five nights a week!

Yes – that’s right – five nights of Andy Cohen! Senor Cohen the quirky, silly, master manipulator Executive Vice President of Programming who is behind the Housewives franchises and shows such as, Top Chef will be expanding his late-night variety show to air Sunday through Thursday starting this January.

“It’s a new world and a whole lot of people are doing a lot of things at once,” Andy excitedly described the decision to expand. He was so excited he announced the new programming on last night’s show as his Mazel!

So why did Bravo decide to amp up WWHL’s air-time? According to data, Cohen et al garners more viewers than other late-night cable shows — including Chelsea Handler and Conan O’Brien! In fact, for female viewers aged 18-to-49, Andy’s show has “among the strongest ratings for late-night cable shows,” averaging about 1.2 million viewers with 720,000 being in the 18-49 year-old-age group. What is significant about those numbers is viewers in that group attract “the most advertising money.”

“The dynamics of where late night is now are changing,” says executive producer, Michael Davies. With the addition of social media and online videos, plus audience interaction, WWHL was among the first to incorporate those elements into TV. “Andy comes at this not from a background in comedy but from a background in broadcasting,” Mr. Davies explains. Adding that Andy’s talent for conversation skills, along with the inclusion of cocktails gives the show a whole different dynamic than other late-night shows!

As a result of his new job, Andy will be “giving up his executive vice president title, though he will remain in charge of program and talent development for the network.” Oh no!!! I wonder if that means he’ll no longer be hosting the reunions. One could only hope…

WWHL will air Sunday-Thursday starting January 2 at 11PM.

We do have to wonder if the show will be able to survive five nights a week without having the Housewives series leading into it. Plus will viewers continue to tune in to the episodes without Bravolebrities? Guess we shall see.

Another Bachelor relationship bites the dust.

After over a year together, Bachelorette star Ali Fedotowsky and fiancé Roberto Martinez have ended their relationship.

The couple’s rep confirms the split to PEOPLE magazine. “Ali Fedotowsky and Roberto Martinez have ended their relationship,” the rep reveals. “As they go through this difficult time, we ask that you respect the couple’s privacy.”

Ali, 27, and Roberto, 28, got engaged back in 2010 during the 6th season of the Bachelorette. All seemed to be going well for the couple until a few months ago when Ali revealed they had decided to postpone their wedding blaming their busy schedules and a thigh injury.

UsWeekly, however, reported the two were having major problems just last month. Ali is “miserable in the relationship and he is too,” a friend told the mag back then. “Their relationship has been tumultuous since day one,” added the friend stating the two “bring out the worst in each other.”

The report stated the couple’s issues stemmed from their stressful long, hectic work hours as well as big-time fights.
