Following her firing by Bravo back in September, after which reports came out stating she was experiencing financial diffulty and forced to close some of her Completely Bare salons, Cindy can finally breathe a sigh of relief today as a discrimination lawsuit against her has been dismissed.
Earlier this year, Cindy’s former employee, Altovise Collier, filed a discrimination complaint against her with the New York’s Division of Human Rights, alleging that Cindy fired her because she’s black.
In the suit, Altovise alleged she didn’t receive enough employee training due to her race, which resulted in negative customer feedback. She also claimed that staffers joked she was hired to “inject some color” into the salon and when she complained to Cindy, she was let go.
However, the NY Post reports the case was dropped this month due to a lack of evidence that Altovise was fired because of her race.
Cindy responded via a statement: “I’m so happy that the truth has come out. I’ve never looked at people based on race, religion, creed, or color. I see people for who they are.”
That is, however, about to change as the Playboy founder and his ex are now battling over the custody of the puppy they once shared together!
While Crystal, 25, has claimed Hugh told her she could keep the Cavalier King Charles spaniel, Hugh, 86, is stating they are still trying to figure out who will get permanent custody of the dog.
“We both love the puppy,” Hefner told PEOPLE at the Playboy Mansion in L.A. “I told her if she wants to keep the ring and the Bentley, then maybe I can keep the puppy. I [hope] we will work it out.”
Yes, Hugh was kind enough to allow gold-digger his ex Crystal to keep her $100,000 engagement after she called off their wedding just 5 days before their nuptials. Even worse, Crystal then went on the Howard Stern Show a month later and stated sex with Hef only lasted “two seconds.” She later apologized for her comments.
Hugh, who has stated he “dodged a bullet” with Crystal tells PEOPLE “the puppy’s valuable, but not $100,000 worth.”
But don’t feel too badly for Hef as he reveals he has now moved on with two new Playmates — Anna Sophia Berglund and Shera Bechard.
Below are photos Hef’s new girlfriends Shera and Anna!
America’s #1 Gold-digger Playboy Playmate Crystal Harris is getting rid of the engagement ring given to her by former fiance and Playboy founder Hugh Hefner!
After calling off her wedding to 85-year-old Hugh back in June, Crystal was allowed to hold on to her estimated $90,000 engagement ring, you know, despite trashing Hugh by publicly stating sex with him only lasted “two seconds.”
TMZ is reporting today that the ever so classy Crystal will auction off the 3.39 carat circular-cut diamond at Christie’s in New York City in October.
A sources tells TMZ Crystal, 25, “couldn’t bear to look at the ring anymore because it brought back bad memories.” Poor poor Crystal!
According to the auction listing, the ring is only expected to fetch between $20,000 and $30,000. A closeup of Crystal’s ring is below!
As for Cyrstal’s love life, it was reported last month that she officially moved in with her lovah Jordan McGraw, aka the son of Dr. Phil.
Despite her repeated denials of having a romantic relationship with Dr. Phil’s son Jordan McGraw, TMZ is now reporting Crystal Harris has moved in with him.
Sources close to Crystal, Playboy Playmate and former fiance of Hugh Hefner, reveal she officially moved into Jordan’s Hollywood Hills home a couple weeks ago though she had been crashing at the place on and off for months … while she split her time between L.A. and San Diego.
Even more surprising is that Camp Crystal continues to deny there is anything romantic going on between the couple. A “source” insists the two not dating but rather just really good friends, while Jordan is helping Crystal produce her music album.
But get this, the same “sources” add that neither Crystal nor Jordan is opposed to a relationship, and that if something romantic unfolds, so be it. Uh uh. Sounds like PR talk for slowly introducing the couple to the public in hopes that people won’t figure out Crystal was two-timing Hef during her engagement. It is also believed Crystal called off her engagement to Hef to be with Jordan, you know, full time.
The talks of a romantic relationship first came out in March after Life & Style revealed the two were seen getting cozy at a Hollywood night club. Another fun fact? Crystal is 25-years-old while Jordan turns 25 a month from today. So it appears Crystal has a lot more in common with him than she did with that 85-year-old former fiance of hers.
No word yet on whether Dr. Phil approves of this budding relationship.
TELL US – CRYSTAL AND JORDAN: TOTALLY DOING THE HORIZONTAL TANGO NO?
A week after Playmate Crystal Harris trashed her 2-year relationship with Playboy founder Hugh Hefner, one of Hef’s exes is now coming to his defense.
Hef’s former girlfriend Kendra Wilkinson says Crystal, 25, is “trash” for talking about her sex life with Hef, 86, stating it only lasted “two seconds.” Kendra states, “She just needs to keep her mouth shut, and be classy about it.”
Kendra continues, “After the whole non-marriage thing broke to the news, I actually thought she was being classy about things, until she started opening her mouth about the bed stuff. She just totally made herself look like crap. She looks like trash. I mean, it’s disgusting. She needs to keep her mouth shut, and be a bigger person. Walk away. People don’t like that. People don’t like a hypocrite. She’s a hypocrite.”
Oddly enough, Kendra also found herself in hot water over some comments she made about Hef in her autobiography Sliding Into Home. She however feels Crystal’s comments went way too far.
“Her situation is a lot more harsh,” Kendra, 26, told PEOPLE. “She was about to get married to him. I would have never agreed to get married to him.”
Kendra, who stated in her book that she would sneak out of the Playboy mansion to go see her now husband Hank Baskett, makes it clear her situation was a lot different from Crystal’s. “We both knew our place,” Kendra says of her relationship with Hef. “He knew that we were friends. I knew that we were friends. But to [plan to] get married and then be a backstabber to someone like that – to take it to that level and then go and backstab, that’s, like, cruel, you know?”
Crystal has since issued an apology for her comments following publish backlash.
TELL US – THOUGHTS ON KENDRA’S COMMENTS? DO YOU AGREE?
Almost a week after his ex-fiance Crystal Harris dissed him on the radio by stating sex with him only lasted “two seconds,”Hugh Hefner is still defending his sex life.
In a new set of tweets, Hef, 85, insists he had a healthy and regular sex life with Crystal, who had stated they were only intimate once. “For the record, I have sex on a weekly basis,” said Hef. “And I did throughout my two-and-a-half years with Crystal.”
In fact, Hef makes it clear Crystal, 25, wasn’t his only sexual partner. “My sex life involves more than one partner and has since the end of my marriage in 1998,” he added.
And when a fan asked if having multiple sexual partners was the reason for the demise of his relationship with Crystal, Hef responded, “There’s safety in numbers. When I try to settle down [like I did with] Crystal, I get burned.”
But don’t feel bad for Hef as his lifestyle attracts many desperate gold-diggers single women! “Curiously enough, my lifestyle attracts a lot of women,” he said. “I keep getting these requests to become a girlfriend.”
Hef reportedly has two new girlfriends since his split from Crystal who has since apologized for her comments.
Days after taking some low blows at her ex-fiance Hugh Hefner, Playmate Crystal Harris is now apologizing, admitting she went too far.
During Crystal’s interview on the Howard Stern Show on Tuesday, she stated sex with Hef only lasted “like two seconds” and that she was definitely “not turned on by” him.
Crystal has now taken to her twitter to apologize. “The Stern interview scared me, he’s harsh,” wrote Crystal. “I was unprepared and blurted out things I shouldn’t have said, I’m sorry,” she added.
It also appears Hef, who was adamant Crystal was lying about their lack of a sex life, accepts Crystal’s apology. “Crystal apologized for her Howard Stern interview, which I appreciated. It didn’t have much to do with reality,” tweeted Hef. “I think Crystal told Howard Stern what he wanted to hear. That’s her MO with most everyone,” he added in a tweet to a fan.
Hef also claimed they had a great sex life in a now deleted tweet from earlier this week. “The sex with Crystal the first night was good enough so that I kept her over two more nights,” wrote the 85-year-old.
Good thing for Hef, some gold-diggers Playmates have come to his defense in light of Crystal’s comments. “I’ve heard girls say they have a lot of fun in there,” said Playmate Hiromi Oshima to PEOPLE. “Hef is a lover,” said Dani Mathers, who works at Playboy TV. “I think they definitely had sex more than that one time and it wasn’t two minutes. Hef definitely has a sex life.”

TELL US – WHEN IT COMES TO HEF’S SEX LIFE, WHO DO YOU BELIEVE? THE PLAYMATES OR CRYSTAL? PLUS THOUGHTS ON CRYSTAL’S APOLOGY?
After dumping her 85-year-old fiance Hugh Hefnerjust days before their wedding, Crystal Harris, 25, is now taking shots at her sex life or lack thereof with the Playboy founder!
In an interview with Sirius XM Radio’s Howard Stern Show yesterday, Crystal did not hold back when asked about her sex life with Hef, revealing sex with him only lasted “like two seconds.” Ouch! Though that’s arguably 2 seconds more than most expected.
“Then I was just over it,” said Crystal stating she was not attracted to Hef. “I was like, ‘Ahhh.’ I was over it. I just like, walked away. I’m not turned on by Hef, sorry.” Even more interesting, Crystal revealed they only had sex once.
When asked if she’s ever seen him naked, Crystal responded, “He doesn’t really take off his clothes. I’ve never seen Hef naked.”
Crystal however claims she totally did love Hef and wanted to marry him in the beginning. Right. In the meantime, Crystal continues to spend time with Dr. Phil’s sonJordan McGraw. The two, who are rumored to be dating despite Crystal’s denials, continue to be spotted together all over L.A.
As for poor Hef, he took to his twitter page yesterday to respond to Crystal’s low blows comments. “The sex with Crystal the first night was good enough so that I kept her over two more nights,” he wrote in a now deleted tweet. “Crystal lied about our relationship on Howard Stern but I don’t know why.”
Hef then tweeted, “Crystal convinced me that she adored me. That was the first lie… I feel sorry for Crystal. She seems lost.” A you tube clip of Crystal’s interview is below.
After a year of chaos and drama, Adrienne Maloof spent her holidays in NYC with husband, Paul Nassif, and their three sons where Adrienne was promoting her new shoe line Adrienne Maloof for Charles Jourdan. You can buy a pair, any pair you see on the Bravo Home Shopping Network for the fair and reasonable price of about $700. SOLD!
While in NYC, Adrienne spoke to WetPaint about Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. Talking about her role as the cast peacemaker, Adrienne credits her family business for giving her the skills to pay the bills. “I think, growing up in a family business with my brothers and having to, at the end of the day, make things work because you live together and you run a business together really prepared me for this job. Because it is, you know, a job. And I think it’s just in my personality to be a peacekeeper.”
As for exposing her friend Brandi Glanville to the crazy Kim Richards, Adrienne thinks Brandi is holding her own. “I met her through a mutual friend and she was going through a divorce,” Adrienne explains. “I thought it might be nice to bring her into the mix. So far, I think she’s doing quite well. It’s an adjustment having the cameras around all the time.”
Of the rest of this season Adrienne warns, “Oh, there’s a lot more drama coming, believe me,” and she is still deciding if she is on board for Season Three! “I’m still trying to get through Season 2! But I do enjoy doing the show and I’ve been having a good time. We’ll see.” And as for who of her cast mates are returning, Adrienne is keeping her lips sealed. “You’re going to hear a lot of rumors, it’s the nature of the beast. But I will say one thing: On this show, you never know!” Fair enough.
Speaking of cast members I hope don’t return who cause plenty of drama, Taylor Armstrong is apparently no longer mad at Camille Grammer and the feud is over. Oh, thank goodness — I was really concerned. RadarOnline reports that the two have patched things up and no longer have any animosity towards each other.
“Taylor just isn’t capable of being mad at anyone, period. There isn’t a feud between the two. On Sunday before this week’s episode aired, all of the Housewives, including Camille were texting Taylor offering words of support to her,” an insider reveals.
“All of the girls receive copies of the show that will air several days before so they can watch it before the public,” the insider adds. “Taylor hadn’t had the time to watch it when she started receiving the text messages. Camille was extremely gracious and sincere in her text messages.”
The insider goes on to point out that while the two are friendly, they are definitely not “like family” as Taylor described the casts relationship on a recent episode of WWHL. “Are these two best friends? No. But Taylor was extremely appreciative towards Camille in the days after Russell [Armstrong] committed suicide because of the support she offered Taylor.”
In other news, there is no new episode of RHOBH tonight and new episodes will resume airing in two weeks. Sads.
WHO DO YOU THINK SHOULD RETURN FOR SEASON 3? DO YOU BELIEVE CAMILLE AND TAYLOR ARE FRIENDS AGAIN?
If I had a dollar for every time I typed the name “Kardashian”, I’d be as rich as one of them! Speaking of the Kardashians, here comes your daily news update on the first family of tabloid. In the latest, several media outlets report that Scott Disick is officially over being a Kardashian accoutrement and is considering leaving his pregnant girlfriend Kourtney Kardashian, and Kim Kardashian‘s ex-boyfriend’s mother is afraid she is going to weasel her way back into their lives!
Anyone who has wasted their time watching Kourtney and Kim Take New York knows that Scott and Kourtney’s relationship is a little on the odd side… they sleep in separate bedrooms, Kourtney can’t stand Scott and he spends a lot of time looking at porn (he even confessed his relationship is a mess to pimpmomager Kris Jenner). Scott actually left Kourtney for a day or two to move in with Jonathan Cheban after the couple stopped speaking over some petty nonsense.
Meanwhile, Kourtney insults Scott and his family, finds everything he does annoying and then looks despondent when her sisters try to counsel her to pay more attention to the man she claims to love. That made it all the more shocking when Kourtney announced she was pregnant with the couple’s second child — still with no plans to get married despite rumors that Scott had bought Kourtney a ring.
Well, it seems Scott may be looking to return that ring and leave Kourt for realz! In Touch Weekly is reporting that “unbeknownst to Kourtney, Scott has hatched a secret plan to ditch her, their son, Mason, 2, and the new baby – and move cross-country to New York.”
“Scott has been reaching out to his old group of buddies in New York and telling them that he can’t wait to get away from Kourtney and her family for a while, start partying again and launch a club in the city,” a close friend of Scott’s tells the mag. “Scott wants a place in New York City where he can escape the family and get some space to do his own thing.”
“He’s talking to potential producers and partners,” the friend adds. “Kourtney thinks the baby changed his mind, but it didn’t.” Even more shocking the friend reveals Scott and Kourtney’s relationship has been been a fake for a while! “His relationship with her isn’t real,” the source reveals. “He’s only still in it because he’s getting paid.” Is the money worth the humiliation and cruelty inflicted on him by the family?
Personally, I don’t think Scott would abandon his son and his future child as he seems to be a loving and doting father, but I can definitely see his dissatisfaction with his relationship and I can absolutely see the couple breaking up.
Moving on to other Kardashian nonsense, Reggie Bush‘s mother really, really doesn’t like Kimmie Kakes! According to the National Enquirer, after bailing on her brief marriage, Kim reached out to Reggie again for support during her difficult time. When Reggie’s mom, Denise Griffin found out she advised Reggie “Don’t take her back!”
Denise believes Kim has “ulterior motives” and she does not want her son mixed up with that mess her again. “For Reggie’s sake, Denise put on a smiling face when he dated Kim in the past, but she was never a fan of her or any of the Kardashians,” a friend discloses to the magazine.
“Denise was horrified when Reggie first brought Kim home to meet the family in late 2007 because it was after her infamous sex tape with ex-boyfriendRay Jhit the Internet,” the source continues. “Denise wants nothing to do with the Kardashian name or fame, and she made that clear to Reggie over dinner one night when he told her Kim had reached out to him.”
“She told Reggie not to take her back and added, ‘She’s NO good for you!’” Reggie’s mom sounds like a smart woman. The source also adds that Denise wants her son to settle down with a wholesome and religious woman very different from the spotlight obsessed Kim.
DO YOU THINK SCOTT AND KOURTNEY WILL BREAK UP OR IS THIS ANOTHER PUBLICITY PLOY? IS REGGIE’S MOTHER RIGHT TO WARN HIM ABOUT KIM?
Attention All: Kate Gosselin is dating! That’s right — the divorced mom of eight long been rumored to be having an affair with her very married bodyguard Steve Neild, is dating someone — and it’s not Steve!
According to HollyBaby, Kate has been on several dates with a mystery man who is possibly her boyfriend! “Kate has been set up on many blind dates,” a source reveals. “But finally one guy has caught her eye.”
“He’s not in showbiz but she met him at an event. The two have been quietly seeing each other but she hasn’t introduced him to the kids.” While Kate is on the dating scene again, the former star of Kate Plus 8 may have ulterior motives because HollyBaby is also reporting that Kate is jealous of her ex-husband Jon Gosselin‘s relationship with Ellen Ross!
Apparently, the Gosselin kids “love” Ellen which has Kate steaming with jealousy! “Kate’s kids are starting to ask about Ellen and talk about her to Kate,” a source discloses. “They think Ellen is so funny, and they ask Kate if their dad is going to marry Ellen.” A photo of Jon and Ellen is below!
“Kate can’t stand that the kids like Ellen,” the source added. “Kate wants the kids to not think of Ellen as a stepmother, it drives Kate crazy. Kate doesn’t like the kids getting close to her and she refuses to accept Ellen.” Well, perhaps Kate can get over her preoccupation with Ellen by focusing on her new man!
ARE YOU HAPPY FOR KATE THAT SHE IS FINALLY DATING? DOES KATE NEED TO ACCEPT THAT JON HAS MOVED ON AND IS SERIOUS WITH ELLEN?
Perhaps they should call it Basketball Wives: Law and Disorder! Two of the originalBasketball Wives are on the receiving end of some pretty hefty-and ridiculous sounding-lawsuits.
TMZ.com is reporting that Evelyn Lozada is being sued for allegedly benefiting from hundreds of thousands of dollars funneled to her illegally from ex-fiancé and NBA All-Star Antoine Walker. Walker, who filed for bankruptcy last year, made $110 million from his NBA career… and that’s not counting the bank he pulled in from additional deals and endorsements. How does one person — actually, how do one hundred people — blow through that cash so quickly?
Walker’s bankruptcy trustee is questioning Lozada’s part in the whole situation because Antoine apparently gifted his ex-fiancé with $560,000 when he knew he was going broke. The trustee is claiming fraud regarding Walker’s money transfer to Evelyn, stating it was an attempt to conceal funds from his actual creditors. The trustee further accuses Evelyn of using that money to open her high end shoe store, Dulce, in Miami.
Evelyn is crying foul insisting that she knew nothing of Walker’s money troubles. She admits that Antoine gave her money to pay some bills, but she is adamant that Dulce was founded on proceeds from her engagement ring from Walker, not from the $560,000 that the trustee is trying to recover. Because that’s better, right? Regardless, Evelyn believes she is pretty safe from these recent allegations, and I can’t say I blame her. Sources close to Evelyn reveal she had no clue that her ex was in such financial trouble.
Also looking down the barrel of a lawsuit is Evelyn’s co-star and biffle Tami Roman. It seems that Tami has gotten herself into quite the hairy situation… pun intended.
The same site is highlighting another litigious timeline in which Tami requested some weave hair extensions from Constance Corleone (and no, she’s not the newest addition to Mob Wives) who is the owner of Bella Dream Hair. The suit claims that Constance was kind enough to gift Tami with some fake hair, and she was mortified to learn that Tami was starting a hair line of her own aptly called Curls By Roman.
The cusp of the altercation hinges on the fact that Tami advertised her line of faux hair with pictures of her wearing extensions from Bella Dream Hair. That’s some serious stuff, y’all! After the drama began, Tami issued a press release (who am I kidding?) tweeted, “Fraudulent people trying to take credit NOT. People trying to take credit for this hair. WTF they crazy.” Who needs legal representation when they are that eloquent?
TMZ.com reports that Constance is suing the diva for a mere $500,000 (chump change!) and she demanded Tami return the gifted hair. Tami responded, “Mad that I already mailed that S**T back2u cuz I got they address-would took it to Constance myself lying bitch.” It appears Tami is looking the gift hair in the scalp mouth!
DO YOU THINK EVELYN HAD ANY IDEA ANTIONE WAS IN SUCH DEBT? SHOULD SHE BE RESPONSIBLE FOR REPAYING ALL THAT MONEY? WHAT ARE YOU THOUGHTS ON THE LAWSUIT AGAINST TAMI? DOES SHE OWE BELLA DREAM HAIR?
Uh oh Jersey Shore, fans could the fifth season be their last? For the guidos and guidettes of Seaside Heights it seems being the drunken party animals embarrassing themselves on television has grown old now that they’ve had a taste of fame and fortune!
HollywoodLife reports that according to a source close to the show the cast members are over it! “The cast just isn’t as close as they once were,” the source reveals. “They are all pursuing their own projects, clothing lines, perfume lines and several of them want their own spinoffs. There’s a lot of competition and they all feel like they’re famous enough in their own rights to continue on without the show.”
“Pauly Dhas been trying to secure his own reality show for a while,” a different source explains. “Mike [The Situation] wants his own show but no one really wants to go forward with it and Snooki and JWoww were trying to get their own show.”
JWoww has already confirmed she is filming a spinoff with BFF Snooki and is hopeful the plot will include them going on a road trip.
Jersey Shore’s Fifth Season airs on January 5th on MTV.
WOULD YOU WATCH ANY OF THE JERSEY SHORE CAST IN THEIR OWN SPINOFF OR SHOULD THE CAST STAY TOGETHER?
While I hope that all RT readers are enjoying a wonderful holiday, Teen Mom alum Amber Portwood spent her Christmas behind bars. It’s much sadder and not nearly as hilarious as these posts should be.
After facing multiple violations, the young mother found herself in jail due to her failure to comply with the terms of her probation. On December 19, Amber was charged with possession as well as reportedly refusing to adhere to a mandatory urine sample.
TMZ.com is reporting that probation officers visited Amber on December 16 for failing to keep a court mandated appointment. An affidavit provided by Anderson, Indiana policeman Sgt. John Branson reveals that Amber was found in a “very groggy” state. Branson continues that officers found a bottle of mixed controlled substance pills for which Amber could not provide prescriptions. Amber cited that “her housekeeper throws all that kind of stuff away.” She’s got a housekeeper?
According to the site, officers discovered “32 Hydrocodone pills, 6 Soma pills, 2 of another muscle relaxer, 3 of a different kind of Hyrdocodone, and then 1 pill they were unable to identify.” Amber remains in custody until her hearing on January 13. MTV, please stop celebritizing these girls’ lives. God knows she’d probably be in a very similar situation if she’d never darkened the door of the network’s season-wide public service announcement… but at least she wouldn’t have banked full of extra funds with which to ruin her life, as well as the life of her precious toddler.
Of course, while you and yours were chowing down on turkey, dressing and (in my case) killer lasagna, TMZ has obtained Amber’s Christmas slammer menu. The website reveals that while we were enjoying bounties of deliciousness with family and friends, poor Amber and her fellow inmates were feasting on “turkey sausage pizza” (which was described as ‘a meat-like substance on top of the pizza’), a side of carrots (cold, not steamed), peas and some pineapple.”
Wow and wow. While I’d like to funny (and I do firmly believe that pineapple was a missing and necessary staple of my Christmas smorgasbord), it hurts my heart that anyone, including the awful Amber – who needs to serve her time and change her life — isn’t getting the precious time with loved ones I’ve been allotted. #blessings
Here’s hoping you and yours are reveling in this wonderful time, burying the hatchet and savoring your time with those you hold most dear!
