Oh, Teen Moms. What can I say that hasn’t already been said? Not much. So without further ado, here’s the lowdown…
We begin with Chelsea furnishing and decorating her new apartment and proactively looking for a job to help her dad with the finances. That’s a start! Adam has been MIA, but Chelsea seems excited to be gainfully employed and potentially meeting new friends at a new gig. Her first interview seems to go well… she wants to go to cosmetology school, she’s working on her GED and her schedule is wide open. Who wouldn’t want to hire her?
Kailyn is still reeling from her recent fight over child support with Jo. She reveals to friends that she hadn’t previously asked for child support before because her mom was helping her. However, Jo lives at home and has a full time job, so he should be contributing equally. Kailyn getting her own place doesn’t negate her financial responsibility to Isaac, but Jo believes that she’s wasting money on their son that he doesn’t need to spend. Um, not the case.

Bravo has just released the full season 3 trailer which can be summed up in three words — tears, tears and more tears. In what appears to be a very emotional season (also the longest one yet), Bethenny Frankel is living life in the fast lane and struggles to juggle her many roles which includes wife, mother and mogul.
The trailer also includes scenes from Bethenny’s ‘lost at sea’ saga as well as dramatic fights with hubby Jason Hoppy. You can watch the new BEA trailer below!
Bethenny Ever After returns to Bravo on Feb. 20.
Moving on to Bethenny’s nemesisReal Housewives Of New York alum Jill Zarin: She recently spoke to Celebrity Baby Scoop (disclosure: I used to freelance for them) about Bethenny and the least anticipated jewelry line of our time, her new collection, GLITTERINGS. Curiously, it is not inspired by the cult classic Mariah Carey film Glitter, but by the thousands of dollars of jewelry her husband Bobby Zarin has purchased for her, specifically the massive ring he just bought her from the Elizabeth Taylor estate:
“For the first collection, I drew inspiration from Elizabeth Taylor’s jewelry. My husband is so incredibly supportive in everything I do and when Elizabeth was selling her jewelry, I bought all the catalogues and went and saw it. My husband wanted to buy me a piece to inspire me,” says Jill.
Naturally, the conversation turned to whether or not she missed being on RHONY, the show that brought her wonderful, shrieking presence into our lives and hearts. Jill’s feelings about this seem to change with every interview, occasionally being angry and claiming the show will fail without her, and other times, she seems to look back on it bittersweetly.
This time around, she says she’ll miss the “team” she had with… Kelly Bensimon (huh?): “It’s just the timing and the place, and without Kelly [Bensimon]… we were just such a great team. We had a lot of fun together. I always look forward and I never look back. It was sort of like in high school, they force you to you graduate even if you don’t want to leave. I was forced to graduate, and it turned out to be a blessing.”
When asked if there was a feud with her true former teammate Bethenny, Jill responded in the negative, saying: “There’s no feud. Absolutely no feud. None whatsoever,” and even answering “Absolutely” to a question on moving forward with Bethenny. Do you think anyone has told Bethenny she’s moving forward on a friendship with Jill?
On the skinnygirl side, the media blitz leading to the February premiere of the third (and allegedly final) season of her reality show, Bethenny Ever After has begun! This time around, Bethenny is giving weight-loss tips for all you New Year’s Resolutions holders out there. If your idea of working out is walking to the grocery store, here’s a good tip for you from a recent appearance on Good Morning America:
“I belong to a gym and a yoga class and never go. Do your workout when you have time where you are. I do yoga in my room when Brynn goes down for a nap. Sometimes it’s 30 minutes, sometimes it’s 40 or 50 minutes. I’d rather get 30 minutes in than not go to a class. Do it consistently. Commit to it in your house. People think because I’m in good shape that I must go to the gym all the time. But I don’t have the time. I make it work at home.”
No, Bethenny, we feel you are in good shape because you are a millionaire with access to personal trainers and chefs and because being thin is kinda in your job description. Nothing wrong with that, but doing a yoga video 30 minutes a day isn’t going to make you look like Bethenny. It will just make you a bit happier and healthier.
If you are interested, Jill will be showing off her wares on HSN on Valentine’s Day.

Jenelle, 20, is pictured above with shackles on her feet in a black and white striped jail uniform as she stood to face charges in Brunswick County, North Carolina on Tuesday morning.
Jenelle’s attorney Dustin Sullivan tells Reality Tea that the MTV reality star was charged with Domestic Violence Protection Order Violation on Monday night. After spending Monday night in jail, she had her first appearance in court yesterday morning. Her bond was set at $1,000.
Dustin also reveals that Jenelle’s next court date has been set for February 6, 2012. She is now facing 75 days of active jail time.
Calling the charges against Jenelle “absurd and ridiculous,” Dustin states to Reality Tea: “Jenelle has been doing outstanding on probation the last 7 months. She has passed every drug and alcohol test that has been given to her on a weekly basis. She has completed all of the necessary classes required of her and is up to date on all of her payments.”
The two arrests in the past week stem from Jenelle’s issues with her former roommate, Hannah Inman. Jenelle is accused of violating a no order contact placed against her by communicating threats and harassing phone calls.
As for Jenelle, it appears she is attempting to take some time away from social media in light of recent events. She tweeted yesterday, “BYE BYE TWITTER. DEACTIVATING FOR A WHILE. :[." Though as of this morning, she has yet to shut down her Twitter page.
To sum this up, Jenelle is currently facing five different charges. These include two no contact orders, communicating threats and harassing phone calls as well as the latest one of domestic violence protection order violation. As we reported yesterday, Jenelle is at risk for more jail time if she is deemed to have violated her probation from beating up a former friend in a taped fight last year.

Fans anticipate the casting drama of Dancing With The Stars almost as much as they anticipate watching the celebs strap on their dancing gear and compete. Well, casting for season 14 is about to begin and already a whole host of names are being thrown around as possible contenders!
HollywoodLife is exclusively reporting that JWoww and Tim Tebow are both topping DWTS’ producers wish list and have already been approached to participate in the show. Eeks – Can you imagine what JWoww would wear to dance in!?
And following the announcement by Food Network’s star Paula Deen yesterday that she has Type II Diabetes, the show producers now want the 64-year-old on the show! “‘DWTS’ suits love good stories,” the source says. “It’s good timing. Paula just confirmed she has diabetes and this could help her a lot.”
The source also reveals that the show is hoping to get some failed presidential hopefuls on board by asking Michelle Bachman and Herman Cain to consider the show. Also, if Rick Perry or Ron Paul leave the presidential race producers are apparently hoping to entice one of them as well. That seems like one politico too many!
In other DWTS news two-time winner Cheryl Burke recently hinted that fans may get their wish for an all-star show! Cheryl taught a dance class in Mountain View, CA over the weekend and participated in a little Q & A session about the show, which was tweeted live by the peeps at Mountain View Patch.
Among some of the juicy tidbits Cheryl revealed, she mentioned that an all-star show could be in the works in time for season 15! Cheryl also talked on-set egos and revealed, “Some male dancers on the show have egos, but I stay out of it.” I wonder whom she could be referring to…
Cheryl also pointed out egos have never been a problem with male celebrities! Cheryl also shared that she takes Len Goodman‘s advice the most seriously because he’s a real ballroom judge.

THOUGHTS ON NEXT SEASON’S CASTING PICKS SO FAR? WHO DO YOU WANT TO SEE ON AN ALL-STAR SHOW?!
Last night’s episode of the Real Trainwrecks of Beverly Hills contained a whole lotta drama that belongs on a different show. Lisa opened SUR, Kim had some sort of ongoing cray-cray with Ken, whom she is now leaving, and Taylor begged the ladies to love her in what I’m sure she believes is a good rendition of Sally Fields’ ‘You really like me…’ Oscar speech.
Things start off with Kyle getting ready for the SUR launch party with her eldest daughter Farrah. After chasing Portia around, Kyle lets a bored seeming Farrah know that Taylor has left Russell and that she and Kim are still fighting. Farrah wonders why Kyle hasn’t figured out how to manage her relationship with Kim already. Why is Farrah more mature than Kyle?
Meanwhile Lisa is putting the finishing touches on SUR and running around in a panic micromanaging every detail before ditching Ken to finish the job and blowing out the door without so much as a kiss. Poor Ken will have to wait until next year for a cuddle. Lisa needs to accept her life is on camera and not be embarrassed to show affection to her husband.

According to a report by Life & Style magazine, Kris Humphries, a.k.a Kim Kardashian’s husband of 72 days, is planning to get their reality show canceled before its January 29 scheduled finale.
The reason? Kris feels Kourtney and Kim Take New York is being selectively edited to make him look like a jerk and Kim a victim. Kris is definitely on to something as we reported over the weekend that a “heart to heart” scene between Kim and her pimpmomager Kris Jenner, in which Kim reveals she’s having marital issues, was actually taped in a TV studio in Los Angeles in December and not in Dubai in October as the show claimed.
Life & Style adds that Kris is consulting with his lawyer, Lee Hutton III, about steps to take to get the show canceled, while also preparing to sue his estranged wife Kimmie. “He’s not going to be vilified,” reveals an insider close to Kris. “Kris knows his rights. He will sue.”
Apparently, the breaking point for Kris was the fake Dubai scene with Kim and her mom. But it’s not for the reasons we exposed this weekend but rather because Kris noticed the obvious voice overs in the phony car scene.
“Kris was very pissed off at what he saw on TV,” a friend of his reveals to Life & Style. “He had to be calmed down. It was noticeable that Kim was doing voice-overs after the fact — the editing was horrible.” While that episode aired, Kris lashed out on Twitter writing: “I can’t wait for the truth to come out. People will be surprised — or maybe they won’t.”
It will be interesting to see if Kris can succeed in getting the show canceled as the E! network will definitely fight to the death to keep one of their highest rated shows on the air even going as far as to get Kimmie to create fake scenes for sympathy points.
Meanwhile, the negative press for the Kardashian family just keeps on coming. Radar Online is reporting that Khloe Kardashian’s husband Lamar Odom had a wild night with strippers at a Washington D.C. strip club on January 8.
Multiple eyewitnesses tell Radar that Lamar, 32, dropped hundreds of dollars on dancers and at one point moved to a dimly lit corner of Stadium Club strip club with a few strippers. Yikes. “Strippers were grinding on him,” reveals an onlooker.
Lamar is said to have visited the strip club with some of his Dallas Mavericks’ teammates hours before the 2011 NBA champions were honored by President Barack Obama during a White House ceremony on January 9.
All these seems pretty harmless except that sources add that at one point during the ordeal, Lamar disappeared into a private room with one stripper who was a “Khloe look-a-like!”
“That’s where the VIPs go when they don’t want to be seen publicly with a stripper,” the source said. “Lamar disappeared into the back of the venue where the private rooms are. He was there for quite awhile, but eventually came back to hang with the strippers in the main area again. The stripper that gave him most of his lap dances was a complete Khloe look-a-like.”
Even worse for Khloe, certain patrons at the strip club were tweeting to her about Lamar’s actions while he was there. @IamBentleyEvans wrote, “Oh oh Lamar Odom gon (sic) be at Stadium. Khloe can sleep well tonight. The girls r too pretty and not muscular enough for him.” Ouch! While @Dai_laSoul tweeted, “Lamar Odom at stadium n dc ACTING BAD @KhloeKardashian.”
And finally, Kimmie Kakes continues to be the butt of jokes of the entire universe. On Sunday night, poor Kimmie suffered another blow to her ego when Ricky Gervais, host of the Golden Globes Awards, made some highlarious jokes at her expense
During his opening monologue, Ricky stated: “The Golden Globes are to the Oscars what Kim Kardashian is to Kate Middleton. A bit louder, a bit trashier, a bit drunker and more easily bought. Allegedly. Nothing’s been proved.”
Kim, however, wants us to know she found Ricky’s jokes to be very funny! Perhaps someone should let her know we are laughing at her and definitely not with her. Sources close to Kim tell TMZ she gets the joke and “thought it was funny.”
And yes, TMZ, which appears to get a lot of original stories from the Kardashians is ignoring evidence which shows Kimmie staged a major scene on her reality show to report to us on her feelings on being made fun of. I miss the old TMZ, you know, the one that actually reported on things that mattered.
Lastly, while Kimmie has vowed to remain single following the backlash from her quickie marriage, it seems the always desperate one is eager to send out a message to all available suitors out there! Below is an interesting twitpic Kimmie sent out a week ago!

Last night, Cedric was shown “crashing” the opening party of Lisa’s SUR restaurant in an attempt to make up with Lisa. Lisa ultimately refused to make up with him, instead asking Cedric to leave her party.
Today, Cedric is telling Reality Tea, via his rep, that he was invited to the party, while also making some interesting allegations about Lisa’s hubby Ken Todd, alleging their “loveless, sexless marriage” is on “lie support.”
Below is Cedric’s full statement to Reality Tea:
“As viewers have seen all season, and especially on last night’s overly scripted episode of Real Housewives,Lisa Vanderpump is a bitter, conniving woman who will do anything for fame (and a terrible actress)! She keeps saying what I “did” to her was “vicious” but she never really says what I allegedly did.
Well, let me tell you what she did: When Lisa discovered the truth about her husband’s prostitutes, affairs and love child, she made the choice to stay with a cheater so she could continue on her desperate quest for fame. Then she kicked me to the curb, filed a false police complaint and conspired with her friend, the Editor of Us Weekly to defame and slander me.
And you gotta give her credit. It’s worked, so far. She’s more famous than ever; her loveless, sexless marriage is still alive, albeit on life support; and I’ve been marginalized. But the truth is starting to leak out and soon everyone will know of her secret extramarital love affair and the truth about her vicious attacks on me.
What viewers didn’t see last night was the weeks of back-and-forth negotiations between my manager and [name removed], the Executive Producer of Real Housewives. Dave cleared my invite (and the “olive branch” script) with Lisa. In fact, they even discussed a possible spinoff starring Lisa and me, if, according to [name removed], everything went well at the Sur party.
As proof, I’ve asked my manager to release a few of the many emails between him and [name removed] (below).
Lisa has succeeded thus far in trashing my name and manipulating the other housewives. But the race is long and I’m confident that as the truth slowly comes out, the public will come to realize Lisa’s pretty facade hides a heartless, bitter, rotting core.
Thanks to my friends and fans who have stuck with me throughout this painful process. It’s been a rough year but with your help and support, I’ve landed on my feet and I know the best is yet to come!
P.S. SUR: Sexy Unique Restaurant? Really? WTF!”
Indeed, Cedric also supplied us with the emails exchanged between his manager and the executive producer of the series (we have decided to blur out their name).
The emails, posted below, gives us a good behind the scenes look at the way these shows are filmed. The RHOBH producer confirms the time Cedric will be arriving to Lisa’s party and states that while Lisa has been warned Cedric is coming to attempt to make up with her, the other housewives are not aware and will be genuinely surprised to see him.
To sum this up, it appears a producer for the show invited Cedric to Lisa’s party. Lisa was given a heads up, but her reaction to Cedric and his attempt to make up with her appear to have been genuine. This doesn’t come as a major surprise as the producers of these shows are always trying to stir things up for drama a.k.a adding the sister-in-law you hate to your cast, or adding your nemesis to the show only for the two of you to become friends. Hey, at least they’re not going into film studios in Hollywood to film fake scenes, months after the fact. Coughs the Kardashians coughs.
Written in July 2011, the emails also confirms that Lisa was/is indeed in talks with Bravo for her own spinoff. An excerpt from the email reads: “Lisa is in negotiations with Bravo for a potential spin-off that would focus on the staff at Sur. That deal has been in the works for a while. All along I’ve been saying that it’s too bad Lisa and Cedric had their falling out because Cedric would’ve been perfect fit for that project.”
Do I believe the Housewives series are fake? Absolutely not. I believe most of it is real (a.k.a. the drama between Kim and Kyle Richards) with some added manufactured drama (a.k.a. producers inviting Cedric to Lisa’s party). The housewives series is what I would call ‘Manufactured Drama’ while the Kardashians’ series is what I would call ‘Scripted Drama.’

Last night was the next to the last episode of Love & Hip Hop. I don’t know about you, but I feel as if this season has flown by in a relatively boring string of similar-minded cat fights. Erica Mena and Kimbella Vanderhee are at each others’ throats yet again, Yandy Smith is desperate to find someone who finds her to be a totally innocent party in her smack down with Chrissy Lampkin and unprofessional e-mail to Jim Jones, and Olivia Longett keeps singing away. Emily Bustamante is still pining for Fab and Somaya Reece makes a rare appearance.
Olivia and Emily are discussing the fight between Yandy and Chrissy. Emily has Chrissy’s back while Olivia feels she stuck between two friends. Yandy joins the pair and Emily smugly sizes up Yandy. Yandy hopes that Emily will help show Chrissy her side of things, but no dice. Emily will leave that job for Olivia.
