Bachelorette Ashley

Poor Ashley Hebert…she’s looking for love on the Bachelorette but can’t seem to catch a break. We have watched the train wreck that is Bentley Williams all but derail her quest to find her Prince Charming, and then a report came out stating the man she chose aka her fiance is a womanizer.

So are the remaining suitors as perfect as they seem? On the most recent episode, Ames Brown, the Manhattan financier who seems shy yet smooth, gains flirty points with Ashley for a lame make-out session in an elevator. He is also riding on his sympathy points from two episodes ago when he got a concussion during a round of Thai boxing. I don’t know about you, but I think that had Ames not gone to the hospital, he wouldn’t have been around this week for me to blog about on Reality Tea.

As skeletons of the final guys come running out of their closets, those closest to them are quick to send their warnings to Ashley…all out of the goodness of their hearts and not because they want to see themselves quoted in a tabloid. Case in point, an ex-girlfriend of Ames’ reveals to Life and Style, that while he did graduate from an Ivy League School, he’s hardly the “portfolio manager” his Bachelorette bio proclaims.

The mystery lady says, “Ames never has real jobs. He just gets degrees and travels around.” To that I say, why is that bad? He clearly has the funds to do what he wants, so what if Ashley has to spend a couple years traveling with her over-educated, under-employed world-traveling husband? I mean, besides the fact that he can’t handle a punch and seems slightly awkward in social situations, what’s the problem?

And it doesn’t end there…from the over-educated to the over-excited, people from Ryan Park’s past are coming forward to explain that over-eager solar energy executive from California (who is not well liked among his fellow cast mates, to put it nicely) is only on the show to promote himself. A source reveals, “He broke up with his girlfriend right before he went on the show because he told her he wasn’t ready to get married and didn’t feel like marriage was in his future.” Hmmm…it makes sense to do that before going on a show where you don’t win money or vacations or excessive material things, but instead you are trying to win A SPOUSE.

We’ll all have to wait and see if these accusations have a grain of truth or if some scorned ex-girlfriends are just looking for their fifteen minutes seconds of fame. Regardless, I’ll bet that Bentley is thanking his lucky stars that he won’t be the only one with sketchy motives when the guys are put in Chris Harrison’s hot seat on The Men Tell All.

The show is on hiatus tonight. It returns next week with the all new interview with Emily Maynard.

TELL US – DO YOU BELIEVE SOME OF ASHLEY’S GUYS ARE THERE FOR THE WRONG REASONS?

Real Housewives of New Jersey newbie Melissa Gorga is now having to experience the not so fun part of her new found fame.

In the latest issue of the National Enquirer, out of the woodworks is a woman named Jamie Bauer alleging she had a lesbian relationship with Melissa and dated her for 18-months while she was still a teenager. In fact Jamie even ponies up photos to the tabloid magazine to prove her claim, some of which are below.

“Melissa had one of the most insatiable sexual appetites I’d ever found in a woman,” declared her alleged former girlfriend Jamie, adding that Melissa once led a hell-raising life that is nothing like her now squeaky-clean motherly image. “This domesticated family woman that fans see on ‘Bravo’ is definitely not the same wild child I used to share a bed with when we were younger.”

Jamie reveals she met Melissa when she was a 16-year-old sophomore at South Florida’s Boca Raton High School back in 1995. Jamie was also 16 at the time. “We met one night at a house party and it was love at first sight,” says Jamie. “As a couple, we couldn’t have been a more unlikely pair. Melissa was from a affluent family and hung out with all the popular kids. She was a cheerleader, never got into trouble and made good grades. I was just the opposite. I was a high school dropout and already living on my own.” says Jamie.

“After we started dating, Melissa told me I was the first girl she’d ever been with. We managed to keep our relationship a secret from her mom for several months, even though I spent the night at their house several times a week and we’d sleep in the same bed.”

Jamie adds that Melissa’s mom eventually caught on to the relationship and banned them from seeing each other, though they still did secretly. “I’d sneak into Melissa’s bedroom window several times a week for sex,” claims Jamie. Eventually things cooled off between the two when Jamie was sent to jail for a probation violation.

Jamie adds that Melissa still wrote her “steamy letters” almost every day while she was in jail. However things ended after 18 months of dating when Jamie discovered Melissa had cheated on her. “When I got out, I found out she had cheated on me with another girl while I was away,” states Jamie.

Fast forward to today and it appears Melissa’s alleged lesbianism didn’t take as she has been married to Joe Gorga for almost 7 years with three children together, something Jamie is not too fond of. Jamie reveals watching Melissa’s new life on the RHONJ makes her “nauseous.” Wowzers. As for Melissa, she has yet to publicly comment on this story. You can read more about the story in the current issue of the National Enquirer.

Photos of Melissa and Jamie together are below.

In other NJ news, the Enquirer is also reporting that Melissa’s sister-in-law Teresa Giudice is seriously considering getting $40,000 worth of plastic surgery after recent photos of her in a bathing suit caused her “severe anxiety.” A source reveals Teresa, 39, is dealing with “a lot of insecuri­ties.”

On Teresa’s reported to do list? A $12,000-$15,000 tummy tuck and thigh liposuction, a $7,500 “touch-up” on her boob job, a $5,000-$7,000 butt-lift, a $9,500 face- and brow-lift and $1,000-$2,000 on lip plumping. “She’s suddenly found herself famous around the world and feels entitled to this makeover because now she’s a star,” said the insider. Teresa’s publicist however denies she’s planning any cosmetic work.

And finally, no new episode of the RHONJ will air tonight. The show returns next week with an all new episode.

For the second time in days, Jersey Shore star Vinny Guadagnino has left the Shore house during filming, and this time around, it’s for good according to TMZ.

As reported, MTV is currently filming the fifth season of the mega hit show back in Seaside Heights, New Jersey. Vinny was first spotted checking into a hotel days ago on Wednesday after he reportedly got into it with another castmate. He ended up returning the next day.

However TMZ is now reporting Vinny left the house again last night after getting into another argument with a cast member and headed back home to Staten Island. The reason? He was feeling “burned out” and had been complaining of “being homesick.”

Sources tell TMZ the cast convinced him to return after exiting the show the first time. The sources however add that Vinny has been a pain to live with and his castmates do not plan on begging him to return this go around.

A rep for MTV stated, “We don’t comment on series while they are in production but viewers can be assured they will have answers when Season Five premieres.” The above picture of Vinny was taken on Thursday after he returned to the Shore house following a night away in a hotel.

It seems MTV’s plan to have the cast tape seasons 4 and 5 back to back is backfiring. Right after the cast finished taping season 4 in Italy, MTV had them return back to Jersey where they were kept secluded for a week before filming began on season 5 last weekend.

TELL US – THOUGHTS ON VINNY LEAVING THE SHOW? SHOULD MTV REPLACE HIM?

Proving that her fame is international, Bethenny Frankel is talking about the same old things her reality shows and her struggles in an interview with Australian newspaper The Daily Telegraph!

In the interview, Bethenny explains she enjoys doing a reality show, but having dueling reality shows Skating With The Stars and Bethenny Ever After was a bit too much: “I foolishly took on another show, Skating with the Stars, at the same time (as Bethenny Ever After). To take on two shows, a new baby, a new marriage, the negotiation to sell my company took a lot out of me.”

Bethenny who is dedicated to famewhoring her fans generally doesn’t mind the cameras in her face, as she discloses why she never requests any private moments away from the glaring lens of Andy Cohen: “I don’t do that because it would compromise the integrity of the show. Sadly, most reality shows aren’t real at all. I feel a responsibility to be truthful.” We’ve noticed, Miss ‘I can’t go to the bathroom without a boom mic’!

This is also why she feels it’s important to make her therapy sessions part of her show: “Therapy itself is difficult to do to begin with, but not difficult to have filmed because you forget the camera is there. If I can help other women understand a little better about themselves by seeing me go through therapy, that’s the most enlightening thing about the show. I run to the therapist. It’s valuable, I certainly need it, I’m proud of it.”

In other Bethenny news –it’s all about one-year-old daughter, Bryn and like mother, like daughter it seems Bryn has a lot to say! In a recent interview with SheKnows, Bethenny gives us the skinny on Bryn’s new loquaciousness: “Yeah, she’s talking. She says mama, balloon, wow, and her newest word ‘ma-na-na-na,’ which means banana.”

And speaking of food, Bethenny who describes her daughter as a “mama’s girl” also disclosed that the two bond over food – which Bryn loves and Bethenny tolerates a couple bites at a time: “She eats everything and since that’s one of my passions, I find it fun.” Apparently Bryn has quite the diverse culinary repertoire: “Her favorite food is Mediterranean. She eats grape leaves, artichoke pesto, mango cilantro salsa, baba ganoush. Just this week she had Indian food and Thai food.” Here’s hoping Bryn won’t be on the Skinnygirl diet anytime soon! Although, I am counting the days until Bethenny releases some sort of baby food cookbook.

Also, next for Bethenny and hubby Jason Hoppy aka Team Frankel is, of course, Skinnygirl Baby No. 2! “We’re preparing, I want another girl,” says Bethenny. Does that mean season three of Bethenny Ever After will feature the same thing as season one of Bethenny Getting Married a new pregnancy and preparation for the upcoming Hoppy?

Bethenny is pictured above during a June 17 ‘Skinnygirl Margarita’ bottle signing at LCBO store Toronto, Canada. Photo credit: WENN.

So would you buy a Skinnygirl Babyfood Cookbook written by Bethenny? Are you going to be watching Season Three of Bethenny Getting Married?

The Bachelorette 2011

According to a new report, Bachelorette star Ashley Hebert is engaged to a womanizer.

We reported on the show’s spoilers weeks ago, courtesy of Bachelor insider Reality Steve, who confirmed that Ashley is indeed engaged to one of her contestants. You can click below to read those spoilers and find out who.

In the meantime, we will refer to Ashley’s fiance as AF. The latest issue of In Touch Weekly magazine is reporting that AF, despite assuring Ashley that he is a good guy who is ready to settle down, is playing her. The mag warns that Ashley is going to get her heart broken.

An insider reveals that AF, who has been spotted with Ashley since filming ended, is known as an irrepressible flirt around his hometown. A source says on June 24, he met a male and female friend at a local bar at 8:30p.m. And as he talked about his experiences on The Bachelorette, “he held the girl’s hand and looked into her eyes,” a witness says. “They looked really close. Before she got up to leave, she gave [AF] a huge hug; it was really intimate.”

The source adds that after she was gone, AF kept starring at two attractive blondes at the table next to them. “He couldn’t take his eyes off the girls,” the witness adds. “It was like he just couldn’t get enough of all the women.”

And during another outing, a different source reveals AF “was so aggressive and drunk” with the women there that he almost got kicked out of the venue.

Another woman tells In Touch that if AF and Ashley are engaged, he is definitely not being faithful. “If Ashley picked him, he’s not being faithful – he’s asked me out a bunch of times.”

“In real life, he’s very different from how he is on the show,” the source insists. “He seems genuine when he’s talking to Ashley, but he’s actually kind of a jerk.” Yikes.

Seems like the Jillian Harris and Ed Swiderski situation all over again. If this story is true, it wouldn’t come as a total shock as Ashley seems to have a thing for the bad boys aka Bentley Williams. But if Ashley was actually fooled this time around by AF, then she can’t be to blame right?

TELL US – THOUGHTS ON THIS STORY? IF THIS IS TRUE REGARDING ASHLEY’S FIANCE, IS SHE TO BLAME FOR PICKING A JERK?

Eric who? It seems Basketball Wives star Jennifer Williams is doing just fine after filing for divorce from husband Eric Williams.

Jennifer has a new boyfriend according to the Necole Bitchie blog, who spotted Jennifer above with her new beau Lucas James at a recent event. So who is Lucas? Just an upgrade from Eric a celebrity trainer/nutritionist.

The Bossip blog adds that Jennifer and Lucas became official over the Memorial Day weekend, and the two have been spotted getting cozy in New York, Phoenix, Los Angeles, and Miami. In fact Jennifer confirmed she is indeed dating Lucas and when asked if he’s going to be on the show, she answered no.

Lucas is described as a personal trainer with a “luxurious healthy lifestyle company,” who pushes his high-end clientele to make weight-loss a lifestyle as opposed to just a gym routine. Lucas however has a background in reality television. In 2008, he won “Date My Ex: Jo & Slade”, which starred Jo De La Rosa and Slade Smiley of the Real Housewives of Orange County.

More photos of Lucas and Jen below! And as for Eric, he tweeted days ago that Jen had gone “Hollywood.”

Meanwhile, the Basketball Wives threw a premiere party over the weekend in New Jersey sans Royce and Tami. Photos from that party below plus a photo of Jennifer with Nene Leakes at the BET Awards!
