ABC is finally confirming what has been widely reported, which is that Ben Flajnik will indeed become the new Bachelor!

Ben, a 28-year-old winemaker from Sonoma, Calif, became a fan favorite when he left The Bachelorette broken-hearted after Ashley Hebert rejected his proposal.

He will be getting another shot at love on the 16th season of the ABC hit show which will debut in January 2012.

In the meantime, Ben is set to make his first official appearance as the new Bachelor during the season finale of the Bachelor Pad on September 12.

Reality Steve reported last week that Ben had already began taping scenes for his new season.

Last night’s Season Premier of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills did not disappoint! Oh, these ladies – you know what they say: “More money, more problems!” Last night’s episode filled us in on what the ladies have been up to since last season and apparently not much has changed: Adrienne and Paul still barely tolerate each other, Lisa and Ken and Giggy, are still Lisa and Ken and Giggy. Kyle and Kim are still on the rocks and well, Camille she’s still arrogant and oblivious! Gotta love her! Before the the bickering starts, Bravo does a solid and gives a touching segment about Russell Armstrong and the housewives reacting to his passing.

The episode opens on Aug 29,2011, shortly after Russell’s untimely death and all seriousness aside: we meet Adrienne’s new face! Adrienne is looking 10 years younger and basically frozen in time. The cast sits down at Adrienne’s, to discuss Russell’s suicide. Kyle brings up how financial pressure in Beverly Hills puts so much strain on people. Lisa describes that she always felt an emotional disconnect with Russell – and that perhaps getting too much information about Russell from Taylor made Lisa shy away from him. Interesting… Kim points out that the cast focused so much on Taylor, because of their friendship, and not on how Russell was doing. All of the ladies and their husbands express guilt over not being more aware of Russell’s emotional state. Kyle is hopeful that Taylor will not feel responsible for Russell’s death given that she left the marriage shortly before he took his own life. It was heart wrenching to see the ladies and their husbands speak so openly about the tragedy.

It’s the start of episode two of Basketball Wives: L.A., and the ladies of Los Angeles are already brawling over brunch. Shaunie O’Neal should be so proud. Malaysia Pargo and Laura Govan are in a fight so large it takes several minutes and several crew members to break it up while Tanya sits at the table like she is waiting for her order to be taken. Classic. I’m impressed to see that most of these ladies are actually currently married to basketball players though, so that is a plus.

Gloria Govan decides to have a barbeque and invites all of the ladies, sans Malaysia…which makes sense seeing that Gloria is Laura’s sister. It will be the first chance for the women to rehash the event. Gloria wasn’t at the lunch, so she is prepared to jump Malaysia the next time she is in the same vicinity. Jackie Christie, Gloria, and Imani Showalter have a laugh over the fact that Malaysia’s real first name is LaQuisha. Imani tells Gloria that Tanya wouldn’t lift a finger to help break up the fight.

It looks like Real Housewives of New York didn’t start filming this weekend as earlier speculated. In fact, none of the ladies know yet whether they’ll even be returning for the new season. Has anyone checked on Jill Zarin? She has to be freaking out just a tad.

Sonja Morgan took time out of her star-studded schedule to speak to the New York Post before flitting off to a party for Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries. And wow…throwing Sonja in with the Kardumphries–there’s a show I’d watch! But, I digress. Sonja told the Post, “None of us should be unhappy where we are. It’s really up to Bravo and what they want to do.” She continues, “If it happens, it happens. But none of us should be unhappy because of the success we’ve already earned. If I’m not back next season, it’s not bad. We’re still all stars.” Um, okay.

Bravo hasn’t given an official reason for the delay, but a rep for the network provided a statement, saying, “Production for Real Housewives of New York was pushed as we are finalizing some details for the new season. The cast will be notified once shooting is about to commence.” One can assume that the network is still dealing with the aftermath of Russell Armstrong’s suicide, hopefully trying to realign the franchise with its original premise, which was free from most of the drama and ugliness we are currently glued to multiple times a week.

Also in the wake of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills tragedy, new precautions are being taken with the reality stars’ contracts. Discussing reality show contracts in general, one source tells the Huffington Post, “I’m ashamed to admit I work on a show that once had in writing that contestants agreed we could humiliate them.” The source continues, “I have even seen contracts for dating shows that say if you contract a sexual disease on the show the producers were not responsible. What’s the amazing part is that the people that go on these shows are so desperate to be famous, and have no real talent, that they actually sign these deals.” Wow.

So what do these changes mean for Bravo specifically? It potentially means that Bravo will be more stringent in enforcing a psychological testing clause already present in its contracts with those involved in the Housewives franchise. One of Bravo’s New York Housewives reveals, “We all have in our contracts that Bravo can force us to take a [psychological] test. To my knowledge nobody did, but moving forward any new cast members will for sure. This isn’t to protect the talent but rather to protect Bravo for the next time something horrid happens.” I have to say it doesn’t sound like a horrible plan. In fact, I can think of a few current Housewives they may want to consider testing…

WHO DO YOU THINK WILL BE RETURNING TO THE NEW YORK CAST? WHAT DO YOU THINK ABOUT THE PSYCHOLOGICAL TESTING? WHO DO YOU THINK SHOULD BE TESTED FIRST?

 

The official cast photos of Dancing With The Stars season 13 have now been released!

Above is the first glimpse of Chaz Bono, the first transgendered contestant on the show, in his dancing costume alongside partner Lacey Schwimmer. As we reported, the casting of Chaz, 42, has proven to be a rather controversial one for ABC with some fans voicing their disapproval.

Below are more photos of the remaining “stars” which includes David Arquette, Nancy Grace, Kristin Cavallari, Carson Kressley and their dancing partners!

In other DWTS news, TMZ is reporting today that Rob Kardashian has been slacking off when it comes to practicing his dance moves. Rob’s partner Cheryl Burke is reportedly “fed up” with him as he refuses to practice for more than 2 hours with her. Other contestants are putting in over 5 hours a day.

Cheryl now feels this shows Rob’s lack of interest in doing the show. And while he’s busy not practicing, Rob is reportedly bragging to his older sister Kimmie Kardashian that he will top her DWTS performance by making it past week 3. Good luck with that one Robbie!

Dancing With The Stars returns to ABC on Sep. 19 at 8/7c.

In today’s not so shocking news, a report states Teen Mom star Gary Shirley is broke and homeless.

According to OK! magazine, Gary, who has custody of his 2-year-old daughter with Amber Portwood, has been evicted from his house in Anderson, Indiana.

“He’s flat broke,” explains an insider, who says Gary’s been living on friends’ couches – often with his daughter, Leah. Yikes.

“I’m really worried about Leah. She’s such a good kid. She never really cries and is always laughing; but her life is so unstable,” says the pal. “She never knows who is going to feed her, change her, babysit her or where she’s going to sleep.”

Gary, 25, is of course denying the report, saying he is not broke though oddly enough he doesn’t deny being homeless. He tweeted, “Rumors of being broke are false. I’ve chosen to move and am in that transition. Leah is completely fine and obviously always cared for.”

Just weeks ago, TMZ reported Gary spent over $5,000 while out on a stripper bender.

And unfortunately for little Leah, it appears her mom Amber, 21, isn’t doing much better. Just a week after she left her Malibu rehab facility, following 2 months of treatment, OK! magazine is reporting that Amber is having a hard time coping.

“She sleeps 18 hours a day and hasn’t really changed her habits,” reveals a Gary insider. Amber’s rehab stint came after she attempted to take her own life back in June.

A new episode of Teen Mom airs tonight on MTV at 10/9c.

rachel zoe

The fourth season of the Rachel Zoe Project is set to debut tonight on Bravo, and if there’s one thing certain, it is that we will finally discover what really went down between Rachel Zoe and her former assistant Brad Goreski.

When Brad abruptly quit working for Rachel last year, the two publicly stated the split was amicable. However months later, a report came out stating Rachel was “furious” with Brad for stealing one of her top clients aka Demi Moore. Rachel kept mum back then but in one of the new preview clips for the new season of her show, she is finally revealing her true feelings.

In the clip, Rachel states when Brad quit, he had told her and her husband Rodger Berman that he wanted to spend more time at home with his dog and boyfriend away from the limelight. However Rachel reveals that within a week after quitting, Brad, who also has his own show coming soon to Bravo, “started to pursue our clients, started going to all these events, and doing all the things he said he had no interest in.”

Rachel goes on to add, “It’s not the first time I’ve been used. I would say it’s going to be the last time, though.”

Unfortunately for Rachel, Brad is not her only problem this season, as she will also have to juggle her busy career of styling the A-listers while getting ready for the birth of her first child. A preview clip is below -

Basketball Wives Meeka

According to a new report by TMZ, the only real basketball wife Meeka Claxton will not be returning to Basketball Wives.

Sources close to the show reveal Meeka is getting the boot from the producers, and that they have yet to contact her since the reunion show filming.

The reason? Apparently it all has to do with the lawsuit Meeka filed against her costar Tami Roman for assault. Tami punched Meeka in the face during an outing in Italy.

Right after Meeka filed the lawsuit, Tami stated she would not return to the show unless Meeka was fired. It appears she got her wish.

TMZ adds that the lawsuit was also the final straw with producers of the show. Meeka has yet to comment on the report.

TELL US – THOUGHTS ON MEEKA GETTING FIRED? FAIR OR UNFAIR? WILL YOU MISS HER ON THE SHOW?
