Jill

In an interview with the Associated Content, Real Housewives of New York City star Jill Zarin is opening up about a number of things.

Jill discusses how she joined the Bravo hit show, why her life is way more busy than most people imagine, and how she deals with all the negative press she might or might not have brought on herself, stating that her “very very famous” friends told her how to handle it.

When it comes to how she joined the show, Jill reveals Bravo approached her in September of 2006 after they found her photo in New York Social Diary, “they literally cold called me.” Jill then did some recruiting for Bravo, “I introduced them to Bethenny [Frankel] and Countess LuAnn.”

Her favorite part of being on the show for three seasons? “Helping people.” Excerpts from Jill’s interview below -

Jill On The “Brutal” Taping Schedule – “2 – 5 times a week for up to 12 hours a day over the course of 4 months. In a scene that looks like an intimate conversation there are actually 4 cameramen and sound people surrounding you and another room filled with up to 12 crew members plus monitors, lighting and equipment.”

Jill Explains ‘Jill Zarin Enterprises’ – “I have a brand, Jill Zarin Home, a tv career, public speaking career, book tour and charity work and all of those different aspects of my career form the enterprise I suppose. Ask Darren, he came up with the name.” Darren Bettencourt is Jill’s personal assistant.

A Normal Day In Jill’s Busy Life – “I wake up at 7am and go through emails and make breakfast for Ally and spend some time with her. I read the papers then Darren comes in at 9am and we get to work. Darren and I go through our lists and emails and roll calls and go over our schedule for the day. I usually have meetings scheduled and have been spending a lot of time working on Jill Zarin Home. I also stop in to do some work at Zarin Fabrics as much as possible and if I don’t have an event to attend in the evening I spend time with my family. I have to admit that I work on emails throughout the evening but I am getting better with that.”

Jill On Dealing With The Backlash & Negative Press – “In the beginning I didn’t know what to do, if anything. So I asked some very very famous friends how they handle it. ALL of them told me the same thing. Don’t read blogs or negative press. So I try to ignore it. Unfortunately negative press comes with the job but the people close to me know who I really am and I try and not let others judgements about who they think I am affect me. Am I perfect? No…is anyone?” Very true!!

Jill’s assistant Darren also chimed in during the interview to defend her, stating that the Jill we see on TV “is only 1/100th of the true Jill.” Riiight.

Following the news of their engagement on Tuesday, many are still wondering if this is the real deal or just a publicity stunt. While the jury is still out on that, TMZ is reporting that VH1 has now offered Chad Ochocinco and his fiance Evelyn Lozada, star of Basketball Wives, their own spin-off reality show.

According to TMZ, VH1 offered them the show just hours after the news of their 10-carat engagement hit. The show would focus mainly on the couple’s post-engagement relationship leading up to the wedding, which might be a problem as sources close to the couple stated on Tuesday that they would be having a looong engagement.

Sources add that the couple is very interested but won’t sign the dotted line unless “the money and situation are right.” VH1 reportedly wants to start filming right away.

There are also rumors that Evelyn might be pregnant after she tweeted a photo of a positive pregnancy test on Monday. Yes, she did. Though just moments later, she wrote, “I’m not PREGO!!!! Woooh hooooo.”

So to sum this up, you get engaged and your first thought is to tweet the ring photo along with a message to the haters, just a day after tweeting a picture of a positive pregnancy test, only to then tweet moments later that it was just a joke. Perhaps Evelyn and Chad are a perfect match after all!

And finally, we reported on Wednesday that Chad was two timing Evelyn with Rubi Pazmino, the winner of his VH1 dating show. Well we now have more details on what happened with Rubi and Chad.

Rubi tells us exclusively that she ultimately decided to end things with Chad after she found out he was cheating on her with Eve and many other women. Remember, TMZ reports that Chad and Evelyn have been together for 4 months though he was still dating Rubi as of 2 months ago. Despite the fact that Rubi ended things with him, Chad still continued to call, begging her to take him back with Evelyn still in the picture.

Even though Evelyn was well aware of Chad’s cheating ways (she and Rubi talked and compared notes), Evelyn apparently forgave Chad. Rubi tells us Chad’s attitude was one of “I am unfaithful, take it or leave it.” She decided to leave it. Rubi adds that Chad’s actions show he had no respect for either she or Evelyn.

Following her devastating miscarriage, E! News reporter Giuliana Rancic is now opening up about trying for a baby again.

In a new interview with UsWeekly, the star of Style network’s Giuliana & Bill says she and her husband Bill Rancic are optimistic about their chances.

“The good news is that IVF did work as we did get pregnant,” Giuliana, 36, told UsWeekly. “Sometimes I have to get [injections] 21 days in a row, three times a day. It’s a lot. But you’ve got to do it.”

Giuliana however praises Bill, 39, who helps administer the shots to his needle-fearing wife. “Bill could honestly be on Grey’s Anatomy,” Giuliana said. “He could be McRancic.”

Giuliana also adds that she and Bill are open to other options if the IVF fails to work this time. “We’ve gotten probably 40 women who have offered to be surrogates,” said Giuliana. “And the other day I got an email saying, ‘My niece is having a baby, and she’s giving it up for adoption and we’d like to give it up to you.”

Good luck to Giuliana & Bill.

A new episode of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills tonight on Bravo as the she said, she said battle rages on.

On tonight’s episode, titled ‘The Art of War,’ still in New York, the women are all reeling over the past evening’s meltdown and Kim continues to add fuel to the fire by refusing to stand up for her sister.

Meanwhile, it’s the day of Kelsey’s premiere and everyone’s nerves are fraught, but it’s a glamorous evening and it seems like the women do their best to sweep their problems under the rug – at least while they are in New York. The episode airs tonight at 10/9c.

In other BH news that will have you saying holy moly! The Real Estalker is reporting that Lisa Vanderpump and her husband Ken Todd have listed their Beverly Hills mansion for sale. The asking price? An astonishing $29 million!

The home was reportedly purchased by Lisa and her husband back in 2004 for $14 million. It is 15,480 square feet with 7 bedrooms and 10 bathrooms. The couple’s master bedroom alone is reportedly 2,500 square feet!

And in an interesting twist, the listing agent is none other than Kyle Richard’s mchottie hubby Mauricio Umansky. Mauricio has created a property website for the home which describes it as sitting on 2 acres, having a tennis court and an “unparalleled wine cellar.”

Lisa and Ken are reportedly selling the home to get something smaller as both of their kids have moved out. No word on if Lisa’s home pet Cedric is included in that price. Photos of Lisa’s mansion below which includes a picture of her closet. See if you can count the number of Hèrmes Birkin bags in there.

It was only a matter of time. The HollywoodLife is reporting today that Teen Mom star Amber Portwood has now been officially charged with domestic violence.

According to the HollywoodLife, Amber, 20, was officially charged Nov. 18 with two felony counts and one misdemeanor for domestic violence and battery. The serious charges are a result of an Indiana law which states that an incident of domestic violence is considered a felony if a child is present for the abuse, and according to the cops, baby Leah was present in two cases.

This doesn’t come as a surprise as we reported just a week ago that the Anderson, Ind. cops had subpoenaed MTV for the unedited footage of the fights involving Amber and her ex-fiance Gary Shirley. Apparently, the uncut footage was even worse than what was shown on TV. According to the cops, the uncut footage clearly showed baby Leah was present for two of their biggest abuse incidents.

The police documents show that Amber choked, slapped, punched and kicked Gary, 24, in their home. A warrent will reportedly be issued soon for Amber. If convicted, she faces up to three years in jail and fines of up to $10,000.

And the bad news doesn’t end there for Amber. The latest issue of Life & Style magazine shows photos of the 20-year-old engaging in some underage drinking.

The photos show Amber with a bottle of vodka, while she reportedly told partygoers that she was also taking prescription pills suspected to be Klonopin. “She said she needs to watch how much she drinks because she’s on something,” said a source.

A day following the shocking elimination of he and his partner Brandy on Dancing With The Stars, pro dancer Maksim Chmerkovskiy is letting loose!

In a new interview with E! Online, Maksim, 30, voices his disdain for DWTS. “This season has just been ridiculous,” he stated while also slamming Bristol Palin. Reason? It all has to do with an interview Bristol did on Monday with In Touch magazine during which she stated: “Maks does not like me. He thinks I don’t deserve to be here because I’m not the best dancer.” Excerpts from Maksim’s interview below -

What about the alleged right-wing conspiracy theory keeping Bristol on the show? Are you starting to believe it?
I definitely think that the system is flawed. I think there are a lot of problems with it. I have a lot of friends in the Philadelphia area who couldn’t call at all. People here, in front of me, picked up the phone, dialed one time and it said, “Thank you for voting. You are over your limit.” Anybody crazy would think, “This is a conspiracy theory. Everybody’s out there and wants Bristol to win.” Not at all. I think it’s just a flawed system.

Are you mad at all about it?
I felt really disappointed with Bristol. On Monday night, I found out that she went on record saying that I said something about her along the lines of, “I don’t like her because she’s still here and she’s not a good enough dancer.” Every time I’ve opened my mouth about Bristol, I’ve been nothing but supportive…For her to come out on Monday night and totally smear my name the way she did, that’s just completely uncalled for…I have no idea where she got it from, but wherever she got it from, shame on her and shame on whoever told her that.

Maksim also added that he doesn’t care who wins at this point but he is rooting for Kyle Massey.

When it comes to the upcoming 10th season of American Idol, it seems the judges aren’t the only changes being made.

In a new interview with TV Giude, AI executive producer Nigel Lythgoe reveals that the finalists will now have to face new challenges, you know, other than having to sing live on national television in front of millions of viewers.

Those changes will include contests to make the best music video, to promote themselves, and to work with a band and dancers for an awards show-style performance.

However the biggest change will be the elimination of the top 24 round as the show will now go right to the top 12 finalists. “I didn’t think [the top 24] were very good, I was bored with them by the time they got there,” says Nigel of previous seasons.

What is unclear is how the show and judges will narrow down the contestants to the top 12 especially considering the fact that Nigel reveals more contenders are being sent through to Hollywood this season.  Nigel also promises there will be a wider range of talent including many country, indie and jazz singers.

The new season of American Idol premieres January 12 on Fox. The new judging panel, pictured above, includes Steven Tyler, Jennifer Lopez and Randy Jackson.
