Easy come, Easy go! It seems like ever since Bethenny Frankel started rolling in the millions the lawsuits started coming at warp speed! In this latest lawsuit drama, the owner of a home that was used during the filming of Bethenny Ever After is suing the show and the network for illegally using his house!

For all of you fans (and some of you non-fans) who watched last season of BEA you’ll remember Bethenny’s fabulous Malibu beach house where Team Frankel celebrated Christmas. Well the owner of that house, Bijan Shahmoradi, has filed a lawsuit in L.A. County Superior Court claiming he did not authorize the house to be used for the taping of a show.

Apparently it all started when Bijan leased the 19936 Pacific Coast Highway property for a whopping $13,000-per- month, to “two people” who then “Illegally subleased” the home to NBC Universal (NBC owns Bravo) for the purposes of filming Bethenny Ever After! And when you film on location you must have permission from the property owner(s) if the site is private property. A photo of the house is below.

Bijan is now suing the tenant leaseholders for “allegedly violating their lease agreement” and also suing NBC Universal and Shed Media — the company that producers BEA and all the Housewives franchises. Mr. Shahmoradi claims that by showing the multi-million dollar property on television, it “invaded his privacy by exposing the mansion’s interior to millions of people across the world,” as he believes he has the right to keep his property out of the public eye.

In order to remedy the invasion of privacy he is seeking $25,000 in damages, plus “punitive damages and an injunction.” The injunction being that Bijan wants NBC to bar any further airings of Bethenny Ever After shows that feature his home! Yikes.

The question is: How exactly did a company as large as NBC Universal find themselves in trouble for what seems like a rookie mistake? According to The Hollywood Reporter it happens when the “producers sign a lease to use the property without sorting the tenant from the landlord.”

The lawsuit is claiming that NBC and Shed Media demonstrated “reckless disregard” by failing to practice due diligence to “inquire about the true owner of the property and publicly publishing the interior of the home without consent.” So basically they took the tenants’ word for it that it was their property and they had permission to use it however they saw fit!

As for how Bethenny is involved in this lawsuit — she is one of the producers of her own show! The suit does not implicate her or her wallet directly, but as a producer she is affiliated with the parties named in the suit. Of course, if Bijan is successful in blocking further airing of episodes featuring his home, Bethenny could possibly suffer financially as well. Who knows!

THOUGHTS ON THE LAWSUIT: FRIVOLOUS OR WITH MERIT? ARE YOU SURPRISED NBC AND BETHENNY EVER AFTER WEREN’T MORE CAREFUL ABOUT CHECKING WHO OWNED THE PROPERTY?

The new season of Teen Mom 2 premieres next month and MTV is working overtime to make sure everyone wants to watch by releasing an extended trailer of what’s to come. This season will continue the lives of Kailyn Lowry, Leah Messer, Chelsea Houska and Jenelle Evans as they struggle to balance life, relationships and parenting toddlers!

Leah and Corey Simms experience difficulties in their marriage, particularly in the wake of daughter Ali’s medical issues. Ali will undergo an MRI to diagnose her developmental delays, while Aleeha takes her first steps. Corey will also discover that Leah cheated on him and after six-months of marriage when Leah files for divorce. The series will also show Leah dating again and moving on with her life.

Chelsea struggles to deal with her ex-boyfriend Adam Lind who refuses to step up to the plate for their daughter Aubree. Chelsea also reveals that Adam “angrily” took their daughter, leaving Chelsea to wonder “How could I like him so much and he likes me not at all?” Chelsea will also obtain her GED, meaning a better future for her family.

Kailyn’s bad luck streak seems to continue despite her hard work to create a better life for her son. This season she gets into a car accident and though Isaac and her were unharmed, Kailyn only has liability insurance making it difficult to pay for the repairs and get to work. Kailyn will also have relationship drama as Jordan is jealous that she is spending time with her ex, Jo Rivera! It appears the jealousy may be warranted because as Kailyn confesses to Jordan: “Things went a little further than they should have.”

Jenelle, will also, of course, have drama this season as she struggles to stop partying and focus on raising her son. Jenelle continues to fight with her mother Barbara Evans, over her dramatic and unhealthy relationship with Kieffer Delp (who is back in jail again!) as well as the care of her son, Jace. Janelle also faces jail time for assault and ultimately checks into rehab to help get her life back on track.

Teen Mom 2 premieres Dec 6th on MTV (10/9c). The new season trailer is below -

We begin by seeing Patti Stanger in her element doing a comedy show! Patti continues to embarrass the public by calling out an awkward boy and girl on stage to do a pretend date.

Mr. ESPN Marcellus Wiley – I knew all my boyfriends had a reason for making me watch ESPN, it prepared me for tonight’s episode of MM.

Unless you were too busy watching Brandon Hantz Crazy Pants’ outbursts at tribal council, you probably noticed a few of the castaways from this season’s Survivor getting a tad friendly with one another. I’m sure it gets lonely in the jungle. Two members of Savaii’s former Team Pretty, Whitney Duncan, 27, and Keith Tollefson, 26, had a total spark for each other during their time in the South Pacific. And why shouldn’t they? They’re both young, fun, good-looking, and single. Wait, is one of them married?

Keith is the laid-back water treatment technician from San Diego, while country crooner Whitney hails from Tennessee and made it to the top five of the Nashville Star singing competition. Both came to Survivor single and ready to mingle, according to their bios, and the pair was quickly joined at the hip. However, one additional player has come out of the woodwork… Whitney’s husband, Donny Fallgatter.

While the story of Whitney and Donny’s relationship is different than most, the couple was definitely married when she appeared on the show. They married on August 10, 2010 after two months of dating. However, they never shared this information with family and friends or Survivor producers. Whitney would often travel with fellow musician Donny’s band, and in May of this year, before Whitney left to film Survivor, the pair announced their engagement. Um…

A source tells People.com, “They were good together, and they looked good together. They both fell hard.” The insider continues, “Donny was totally faithful while she was gone. He even went to help out at her parents’ house in West Tennessee a couple times.”

After filming of Survivor concluded, but before the castaways were sent home, Whitney called her husband, who later admitted to a friend that things sounded a bit off. The source says, “He said she sounded weird, like something was up, and not like she was looking forward to seeing him.” Indeed, in a later phone call, Whitney admitted that she had fallen hard for her tribe mate, Keith. The friend recalls, “Donny sent me a text that said, ‘Whitney got into a Survivor relationship.’ I called him and he was really upset so I went over to his place.”

At that point Donny revealed the couple’s secret to the source. “That’s when he told me that she wasn’t his fiancé, but his wife, that they had gotten married the summer before. I was totally shocked.” While the new Survivor sweeties have been spotted around Nashville, Donny reportedly went home to North Dakota so that Whitney could move out of his home.

Not surprisingly, Whitney and Donny have filed for divorce, which was heard and granted last week on November 8th. As soon as the judge who heard their petition signs the paperwork, the divorce will be final leaving Whitney free to pursue other endeavors…wink, wink.

Not to be one-upped by Donny’s People.com source, a Whitney insider has been talking to UsWeekly, stating that no infidelity occurred. “Whitney and Keith did not expect to fall in love on the show but they did. She is divorced and never lied to her ex about falling for Keith. She told him the day she returned from Survivor,” asserts the source.

The insider continues, “Whitney and her family have had a very trying year.” The source is of course referring to the tragic kidnapping of Whitney’s twenty-year-old cousin Holly Bobo, adding, “I think learning about her cousin being abducted the same day she found out she would be on Survivor gave her a new perspective on life and love and made her realize that life is too short to be unhappy.”

WHAT DO YOU THINK OF WHITNEY’S SECRET MARRIAGE? DO YOU THINK HER SURVIVOR LOVE WITH KEITH WILL OUTPLAY OUTWIT OUTLAST?


It’s been what seems like a very long time coming, but finally it’s here…the Dancing With the Stars’ Semi-Finalist Results show. No surprise that Ricki Lake is on top of the leader board, but it was sad to see an ankle injury force J.R. Martinez into third due to less than his normally stellar performances.

The tongues are still wagging about Rob Kardashian’s booty shaking samba that garnered Kimmie’s bro his first ten of the season. Not surprisingly, it’s the judge’s encore dance of the evening and Rob and partner Cheryl Burke are highlighted. The pair even won first place in the cha-cha relay. First on the chopping block, it is revealed that Rob will be dancing in the finals.

Cobra Starship performs with Sabi. I had no idea they sang this song… where have I been? Next up, Hope Solo and Maks Chmerkovskiy’s Monday night is revisited. As you recall, Maks had yet another tiny tiff with judge Carrie Ann Inaba, and Hope’s attitude was less than sportsmanlike… just as it is when it’s revealed she is in jeopardy. Did she just fist pump?

Ricki Lake’s amazing Monday night is remembered with Ricki scoring even more tens. J.R. slipped from last week due to a noticeable ankle injury, gaining scathing commentary from Len Goodman before being highly praised for his second dance despite a botched lift.

Noooo! J.R. is sent to the bottom two while Ricki waltzes into the finals. Poor J.R. looks hopeful, gracious,and nervous, while Hope’s smile looks like she’s super close to killing someone. She’s eliminated, and I will say that she exits with class. Maks apologizes for not being a better partner for her, and she reminds us that he’s a producer of the show. Okey doke.

Fast forward to today and UsWeekly is reporting Hope acted like a sore loser backstage. According to the mag, Hope, 30, was sour backstage and refused to do press following her elimination! Wowzers.

While Hope’s fellow DWTS contestants spoke to media outlets backstage, Hope gave only one TV interview, refused all other press opportunities and burst into tears.

Even worse, in a video recap of Monday’s performances, Hope complained about her scores: “Sevens? The same thing I got in week one. Kiss my booty,” she said. Hope and partner Maks were also heard swearing at the judges while they waited for their second set of scores: “F— ‘em,” they said with Hope refusing to look at the judge’s table.

Perhaps her partner’s bad attitude has been rubbing off on her?

IS HOPE A SORE LOSER? WHAT DO YOU THINK OF MAKS’ CONTINUED AGGRESSIVENESS TOWARDS THE JUDGES? WHO DO YOU WANT TO WIN THE MIRROR BALL TROPHY?

I don’t even know what to say about last night’s absolutely insane episode of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills except is Taylor on diet pills or crack cocaine? And was she seriously SERIOUSLY trying to stage a cast-wide mutiny against Lisa? Denile may be the longest river in Egypt, but Delusion is the longest road to crazytown.

Kyle meets Kim’s boyfriend Ken… and Kyle is not impressed – before she notices what could possibly be a wedding band! Kim explains it is only a promise ring (high school, much?). One reason Kyle is not happy with this relationship is that Kim’s kids have told her Ken is very controlling. Controlling or not, Kim is happy and for the first time in her life doing something she wants to do. Kyle, like the rest of us, will have to wait and see. So far, things aren’t looking good as apparently Ken is still active on Match.com. Oops!

When Kyle tells Mauricio about Kim’s surprise boyfriend, he’s pretty non-plused, but shocked she was able to keep it a secret for so long. Kyle decides she is going to borrow a trick her mom Big Kathy used when she didn’t like one of her daughter’s boyfriends – ignore him completely! That’s just what she plans to do about this whole Ken thing. Um…Kyle – remember YOU ARE NOT KIM’S MOTHER! (sorry – I think she deserved to be yelled at!)

On last night’s Basketball Wives: L.A., the ladies return to Los Angeles where things with Jackie only get worse. Gloria needs a break from her relationship with Matt and Laura gears up for her move to Orlando. Oh, and Kimsha returns!

Back on the mainland, Laura and Malaysia head to Imani’s house to get their “relaxation on.” Apparently my plans for relaxing (quiet time, maybe a massage) are far different from theirs… gossiping about Jackie. Malaysia reveals that Jackie has reached out to her and wants to meet with the group. Laura doesn’t ever want to talk to Jackie again, but Malaysia is worried. She believes that clearly Jackie is off her meds and may need some friends to help.

Shocking! As soon as Jackie runs out of friends, Kimsha Artest (who is in the weekly credits, but has been absent since episode two) resurfaces. She’s been “traveling.” The next few minutes present Jackie talking and talking while Kimsha’s eyes glaze over… Kimsha voices over the scene about how much she hates drama and how she’s having a difficult time following Jackie’s train of thought. I’m disappointed she didn’t get more air time… she seems to be about as real as it gets for this show!

With the public backlash against her at an all-time high and her empire in danger, Kim Kardashian is now suing mad!

Unable to sue the millions and millions of people that rightfully believe her 72-day marriage was a sham, the Keeping up With The Kardashians star has decided to sue her former publicist, Jonathan Jaxson. The reason? Because he has been telling media outlets her marriage to Kris Humphries was a publicity stunt!

It appears that Kimmie is also upset because Jonathan, who was her publicist when she first released her sex tape became famous, revealed just how much of a famewhore she really is.

“When we first met it was all about getting publicity and turning her into a star,” Jaxson told RadarOnline. “I staged so many paparazzi moments for her… I arranged for her to be coming out of a jewelry store and made it look like Reggie was planning to propose to her.”

“She would call and tell me to alert the press so there were cameras there whenever anything happened,” adds Jonathan stating that Kim’s constant need for attention was part of the reason her ex Reggie Bush broke up with her. “Reggie cottoned onto it and he didn’t like it, that was part of the reason they split up. He couldn’t handle the fame and her desire for it.”

Jonathan, who believes Kim’s marriage was a publicity stunt, adds: “She has just become this different person who is eager and hungry for fame. She has a mass craving for attention.”

According to TMZ, Kim is now suing Jonathan to the tune of $200,000 for his comments to Radar Online. Kim is claiming Jonathan violated a confidentiality agreement he signed, and now wants him to pay up for damaging her reputation with his allegedly defamatory statements. Kim also claims she only worked with him once years ago and barely remembers him. Uh uh.

Jonathan, who has also worked with other reality famewhore star Kim Zolciak, however states he never signed a confidentiality agreement.

Meanwhile, just two weeks after pulling the plug on her sham marriage by filing for divorce, it appears all is back to normal for Kimmie Kakes!

Kim, 31, took to her website yesterday to post a “Thank you” note to her “loyal” supporters (aka her “blog dolls”).  She wrote: “Hi everyone! I just wanted to thank you guys for all your support these last two weeks. I took a break from blogging for a while, but I’ve missed you guys so much and I want to start sharing my updates with you all again. I’ve been reading all your comments on here and, as always, my loyal blog dolls have been nothing but supportive. You all know who you are, so thank you! I love you guys. Kim xo”

Kim also made certain to include a kissy face photo of herself to her darling fans! Apparently, all it takes is two weeks to mourn the demise of her sham marriage! Nice to see things are back to normal for Kimmie. Her kissy face photo is below.

Unfortunately for Kim, the public still hates her because almost 80% of those polled on the HollywoodLife blog feel she needs to shut up and go back to staying out of the public eye. Ouch! And according to the rumor mill, Tyler Perry, who hired Kim to be in his new movie, cut her role short due to the backlash from his fans. Sources say Kim was supposed to film for four weeks for her role, but ultimately ended up filming for just a week.

As for Kris Humphries, he has finally hired a divorce lawyer and will reportedly be signing the divorce papers soon.
