At this point, I hope you all realize we’re just pawns in the Bethenny Frankel Public Relations cycle. Does it matter if she’s getting divorced? Not really, as long as you are aware that she has a new talk show. I wouldn’t be surprised if Bethenny released news she was having a sex change at this point. Anything to get this talk show in the news and stay there until the six week cycle is up.
The trailer is out, and it’s okay. I’m frankly surprised she went with this old school format. In my opinion, Bethenny should have done a Chelsea Lately type of show that was better suited to her raunchy sense of humor. Something like “Watch What Happens” or even Kathy Griffin‘s show, something quirkier, edgier, funner. Is she trying to change her demographic? I’m not sure. In any case, find it, weigh in, and don’t forget to comment and tell me what a jealous hater I am for making sarcastic comments about Bethenny. I’ll wait.

“Melissa is manipulative and jealous of Teresa’s fame and she has a dirty secret,” a source tells the site.
The source claims, “Years ago, Melissa and her husband, Joe Gorga, sent a tape to the producers promising that if they were cast on the show, they would do whatever it takes to get rid of Teresa.”
Apparently, Melissa has been vying for a spot on the show for a very long time no no avail. She even got friendly with the villainous Danielle Staub in hopes of gaining the attention of Bravo producers. When that didn’t work, according to the insider, Teresa told producers she would be able to bring down Teresa. I’m confused though…I know the producers want a lot of drama (clearly), but I just can’t picture them engaging in some sort of espionage laden plot to ruin the Guidices. Isn’t this old news RadarOnline?
Oh, Tamra Barney… you know sometimes it’s best to keep your comments to yourself! After Tuesday night’s Costa Mexico Aventurevention with Alexis Bellino, Tamra is speaking out defending her behavior and she insists she is not a bully! She’s just a professionally trained reality television interventionalist working to remedy the fake and phony!
“A bully is someone that intentionally goes after another person,” Tamra shares with RumorFix. “I have never gone after Alexis, she came to me and asked me how I felt. I am a very honest person and don’t tend to sugarcoat my thoughts.” I think Tamra’s version of honesty is more commonly known as diarrhea of the mouth.
And Tamra claims her treatment of Alexis is all in fun… unless you’re, you know, actually Alexis. “Sure, I poke fun of her in my interviews in regards to some of the stuff she says and does (it’s my job and we all do it to each other). Geez, even Kathy Griffin has written her into her act! I honestly feel sorry for Alexis and I hope she gets help.”
Tamra claims the intervention on this weeks episode of Real Housewives of Orange County was a cast-wide affair and everyone deemed it necessary. Why, I’m still not sure. “When the whole cast is planning a intervention to try and get through to this girl it’s gotta make you wonder. Is everyone else wrong and she is right? NO!,” Tamra says.
Kim Kardashian sure does move fast – she married Kris Humphries after knowing him less than a year, which probably explains why she divorced him after three months of marriage. Well, now after dating Kanye West a scant couple of months the couple is allegedly planning to move in together! Yep, welcome to the house that Kimye built.
According to Life & Style the newly nickname minted couple who recently did London are looking for a lovenest together. “They are preparing to move in together, it’s moving that quick,” an insider reveals. “If things continue at the speed they’re going, Kim and Kanye will rent a new house together. They wouldn’t buy yet.”
The magazine claims that Kim is putting her fantastic LA home on the market and moving her entire collection of personal photos – featuring herself of course. “Kim would be putting a lot of her stuff in storage. Her bathmat is KK-embroidered and that’s not changing. She’s OCD-immaculate and so is Kanye, so to have both of their items would create problems.” Oh, well… this could get good! I suggest Jeff Lewis stage an Interior Therapy.
Last night’s Around the World in 80 Plates treated us to Marrakech, Morocco, although we never really see much of the visited country. I love the concept of this show, and I LOVE that involves Curtis Stone, but I’ve yet to find a chef for which I’m rooting. While the chefs voting each other off seems like a good twist, it’s too much like Survivor and not enough like Top Chef, which I love.
As the contestants head to Africa, they share whether they’ve traveled there. It’s most players first visit. Not only is will the team that finishes first get the exceptional ingredient, the team will also win $15,000. The chefs must divide themselves into three teams of three and head on their way in horse drawn carriages. Black team Nookie Postal, Avery Purcell, and John Vermiglia are the first team. Red team Jenna Johansen, Nicole Lou, and Liz Garrett are the second. The final team, white, is Gary Walker, Chaz Brown, and Nick Lacasse.
The teams head to a world famous market where they must locate a spice shop. Everyone is running around like chickens with their heads’ cut off–so discombobulated. The black team is the first to arrive and gain the next clue. They must find the nine most commonly used spices in the native cuisine.
The black team has seven out of nine when the red team shows up at the spice shop to start the challenge. Nick on the white team is disappointed to arrive last given that Gary speaks French. Chaz uses his West Indian nose, and the white team is actually the first to finish. Nookie is crowding the white team at the counter and Gary is getting heated. The white team gets their clue and heads out to find directions to a roof top restaurant.
The women are in last place, as Nookie tries hard to find the way to the restaurant. The black and white teams are neck and neck. Once at the restaurant, the teams are schooled in how to traditionally serve Moroccan tea. The first team to properly pour all their tea will win the money. Gary is an expert pourer thanks to drinking games. However, the black team wins the exceptional ingredient and $15,000. That was super close.

If you watched the second season’s reunion (and I know you did), you’ll recall that Brandi was very vocal about Taylor’s memoir, claiming it exploited Taylor’s late husband Russell Armstrong’s suicide. Apparently, while on a spa trip to Ojai (a trip where several sources touted a Taylor + booze epic meltdown), Brandi announced her new book which chronicles, in part, her split to actor Eddie Cibrian who cheated on Brandi with his now wife Leann Rimes.
According to Us Weekly, once that tidbit was revealed by Brandi, “Taylor screamed that Brandi was a hypocrite.” Taylor, says another insider, “has been having drinking issues” while filming the current season.
We’ve long suspected the girls of Teen Mom earn big bucks – I mean they have to afford the boob jobs, and the attorneys, and all the other ridiculous they blow their money on! Well apparently all Teen Moms are not created equal in terms of paychecks and according to Star Magazine (via RadarOnline) they earn a veritable mixed bag of salaries. Some high… some well, still high enough.
Jenelle Evans, who brings in big ratings for being, well, a total trainwreck earns an estimated $75,000 a year according to a source. “And her mom gets paid $65,000: she calls her an overpaid babysitter,” the source adds. In addition to the paycheck, Jenelle “also gets a lot of gift cards to places like The Olive Garden from MTV as a bonus payment.” I wonder if she got a gift card for the world’s worst boob job?
Last night on Real Housewives of Orange County was a case of hypocrite vs. hypocrite as everyone seemed to gang up on Alexis Bellino. Is there anything more ironic in the world than five women comprised entirely of silicon inserts, plastic, spray tan, polyester hair weaves, and injectibles accusing one another of being materialistic and phony? I mean, really… wow… did I just watch that? It was the most… odd argument I’ve ever seen on TV.
There was just SO much crazy going on. 3/4 of these ladies need to hightail it to the psychiatrist’s office for a nice long visit. I hear Dr. Amador is available since Bethenny Ever After is over – maybe he can relocate. Here are my observations:
1) Gretchen Rossiis a bad friend. Yeah, Alexis is a fake, full of it, and completely dumb but she’s not a mean person. For the past two seasons Gretchen has acted like Lex was her BFFL and now quick as instant oatmeal she’s ditched her and joined the mean girl squad. So, yeah, she’s a totally authentic person.
2) Vicki Gunvalson needs help. I honestly think Vicki is hopelessly socially inept and she covers that up by talking fast, saying crazy crap, and bragging. Kinda… like… Alexis, now that I think about it. Vicki seemed uncomfortable on the trip, angry with Tamra Barney, and really stressed about all her personal drama. Instead of being a normal adult and discussing it with her friends she started acting all goofball and hitting the sauce. Seriously – the singing though. Gretchen was right… “hell.”
