The reason? Soccer star Hope is reportedly getting sick of Maks’ constant verbal abuse. This comes on the heels of Maskim’s recent outburst on the show.
“Hope has had it with Maks,” reveals an insider. “He’s such a jerk and constantly makes obnoxious comments to her like, ‘I’m not here to be your friend.’ It brings her down, and everyone can see it.”
The mag adds that Hope, 30, isn’t alone in her negative opinion of Maksim, 31. The insider claims no one on the show can stand him.
“He is by far the most hated person on the set,” the insider says. “No one wants to work with him, especially since he got his brother Valentin, a spot on the show. He thinks he has all this fame and power now.”
Another DWTS source agrees, adding: “Maks is so arrogant. Hope needs someone who encourages her and makes her feel like she can do it — but Maks does just the opposite.”
Interesting article as the two were photographed looking rather chummy just a week ago. In other Maks news, he tweeted that he is suffering from a broken toe. Maks tweeted on Friday: “One thing that could make this Halloween weekend better—-NOT having a broken toe! Got @TeddyV & @BigMervLA helping out!”
A new episode of DWTS airs tonight on ABC at 8/7c. It will be interesting to see if Maks’ toe injury hinders him in any way.

She later added, “Hows this 4 a source!Hell,ill even attach my name 2 it!”I GOT NOTHING BUT MAD LOVE & MAD RESPECT 4 MY PARTNER @maksimC!” Go ahead,quote it!”
Tonight marks the ending of Bad Girls Club New Orleans and in usual BGC fashion, the ladies are going out with a bang!
Things reach a boiling point when Nastasia Townsend finally decides to get some revenge against Shelly Hickman for destroying her very special/custom made contact lenses!
On tonight’s dramatic finale: The girls arrive home from the club, and Nastasia heads upstairs to prepare for a fight, warning Judi to protect her stuff. Nastasia approaches Shelly and Angelic and Angelic asks Nastasia why she has sneakers on. Nastasia asks both of them who messed with her contacts but they deny their involvement again. Nastasia gives an ultimatum—either defend yourself in the next five seconds or take an ass whooping. BAM! Nastasia throws a drink in Shelly’s face and starts punching.
A video preview is below! The finale episode airs on Oxygen at 9/8c.
Moving on to this season of BGC, which let’s face it wasn’t the best, but it was still entertaining nonetheless. Early on, Stasi was my favorite but in the end, she became a bully. While I can understand her need in wanting to get out the ever annoying Tasha, I wasn’t a fan of the way she turned on Judi, who is pretty much equivalent to a harmless puppy. It just seemed like she was picking on someone much much weaker when she decided to boot Judi, who considered her a sister, out the house.
Shelly was not likable and was quite weak as she always needed backup and pretty much spent the entire season picking on Judi. Priscilla was okay, while newbie Cheyenne was a non factor this season. Angelic was tolerable, and I would have to say Tiara was without a doubt my favorite this season. When you think about it, she did not change in the house and stayed true to her character the entire season. Not only was she funny, but I loved the way she stood up for Judi towards the end, realizing the others — Stasi included — were indeed picking on her. Tiara also held her own the entire season without resorting to bully tactics.
Or perhaps they are just responding to the latest round of stories reported by In Touch Weekly, which are rumored to have been planted by Teresa, herself!
Speaking out on New York Live, Caroline did not hold back! “I noticed a change [in Teresa] when other ladies joined the cast,” she revealed. “We were acquaintances, not friends. Off camera, there was nothing — no interaction,” she insists.
“It has been an unbelievable experience. A growing experience, a learning experience, but I’ve had a lot of heartbreak because of it,” she explains, alluding to her rift with Dina Manzo, which she seems to believe was caused or at least exacerbated by Teresa. “So much I won’t say, because I don’t want to hurt anyone. I’m not going to blame the network. For a TV show, I’m not going to hurt someone. I’m not going to do it,” she declares.
Caroline is also still reeling from Teresa’s attacks against her children, who in her mind have never crossed the threshold into adulthood or something. “My children didn’t sign up for this. We put ourselves out there and have no idea.” Caroline insists, claiming they had never seen reality TV before joining the cast and were not prepared for the negativity.
Caroline also joined Melissa and Kathy Wakile for an interview with The Insider where they spoke about, what else – Teresa! Oh, and the upcoming Season 4 drama!
“Why should I feel sorry for someone who walks away from love?” Caroline asks, referring to castmate and never-really-friend Teresa. “You don’t have the right play the victim, when you’re the one doing all the hitting,” she admonished.
Describing her relationship with Teresa prior to the reunion and the explosive stripper-gate incident supposedly filmed the night before, Melissa expresses her shock over Teresa’s behavior. “I get very disappointed in her,” Melissa laments. “When we’re so good, why would you take that chance?”
“We were great, probably better than ever. And I owe a lot of that to Bravo” Melissa explains, claiming that the interaction required for the show brought them closer and helped a positive a more relationship develop.
As for the friendship between the other castmates, Melissa describes: “It’s just easy, there’s no insulting going on.” Caroline and Kathy echo those sentiments, claiming they are supportive of each other, not competitive, and they “help each other” by offering opportunity and support.
Melissa also spoke to Hollywood Life about the reunion and dealing with the sister-in-law from hell on national television. And she believes the other ladies did not gang up on Teresa!
“Everyone was upset with her,” she states. “We had an explosive night the day [before the reunion] — that was a lot of the reason for the bad blood that you saw,” Melissa reveals, refusing to give any more details about what may have happened.
“I felt the pressure she was going through,” Melissa mentions, claiming she tried to keep a low-profile since Teresa and Caroline were embroiled in so much animosity. “Obviously you saw the commotion between her and Caroline, so I didn’t want to sit there and her think that we were ganging up on her. That was not the intention at all. We’re not trying to team up on her. We are addressing the issue. That’s what the reunion is.”
Melissa also agreed that poor plagued by stripper-rumors, Jacqueline Laurita would not have been able to pull herself away from Twitter handle the reunion! “It was something that Teresa has done that Jacqueline does not agree with,” Melissa cites “She just wouldn’t be able to handle a nine-hour filming session.”
As for how Teresa could make amends with her family and her former (maybe never?) friends, Melissa thinks a simple apology will suffice. “We all do things wrong, we’re all not perfect; she just needs to be able to say ‘you know what, I’m sorry.’” Although Melissa confirms: family is family. “I’m always going to be here to support her and her children.”
My Thoughts: Caroline’s new-found relationship with Melissa and Kathy seems eerily similar to her prior fauxlationship with Teresa! And for someone who was merely an on-camera acquaintance she certainly played up the “like family/thick as thieves” angle in S2 and off camera in interviews and appearances. Which is interesting because Caroline emphatically states over and over that she does not lie. Now, I am 100 percent certain Bravo demanded their relationship seem authentic, but Caroline did a mighty good job of convincing us that it was! Also, Teresa’s reactions at the reunion seemed to indicate she believed they had an authentic relationship (although it’s hard to be sure with her).
Second of all Caroline’s children are adults and have been for the duration of filming. Therefore they did sign up for this show – they knowingly signed contracts, agreed to film, and were compensated for their involvement. Does that give Teresa the right to insult their ideas or behaviors in a cookbook for her own financial gain? No, of course not. But the Manzo children are not innocent by-standers in the situation. They insulted Teresa plenty this season and did not seem to have any qualms about their behaviors. The children who truly did not sign up for this show are those of the Gorgas, Giudices, and Lauritas (save for Ashlee).
THOUGHTS? DO YOU THINK THERE IS HOPE FOR TERESA RECONNECTING WITH HER FAMILY AND CASTMATES? DO YOU BELIEVE CAROLINE, KATHY, AND MELISSA HAVE A GENUINE RELATIONSHIP? ARE CAROLINE’S CHILDREN INNOCENT VICTIMS OR IS SHE OVER-REACTING?
Weeks after the Keeping Up With The Kardashians star wed NBA player Kris Humphries, the tabloids started reporting the couple was having marital issues. At first it all seemed like rumors, but fast forward to today and more reputable media outlets such as UsWeekly and PEOPLE are confirming the two are indeed having a hard time in newlywedville.
Perhaps in an effort to quiet down the rumors, Kim admitted the following to PEOPLE magazine about her marriage: “It’s not ideal because you’re newlyweds and you want privacy.” Privacy? Really Kimmie? Two words that should never be uttered in the same sentence? Kim Kardashian and privacy! After all this is the same person who invited the paparazzi on her honeymoon and sold the photos for a reported $200,000!
A source tells PEOPLE of the couple: “They’ve been a bit distant lately. But they’re figuring it all out.” Distant after 2 months? Yikes!
Kim’s pimp err mom Kris Jenneralso chimed in stating now that filming has ended on the upcoming Kourtney & Kim Take New York season 2, it’s back to L.A. for the newlyweds. “They’re going two separate directions [with work],” says pimpmomager Kris. “They’ll figure it out as soon as they get back.”
Kimmie also graces the latest issue of UsWeekly magazine which sheds some more light on exactly what problems the two are having. The cover reads, “As Kim worries she made the mistake of her life, can she save her marriage?”
The mag reports that two months after the couple’s televised $10 million nuptials, Kim and Kris have already reached a breaking point in their marriage. “Kim and Kris are not getting along at all,” says a source. “Kris is not drinking the Kardashian Kool-Aid, and it’s causing major problems.”
Kris’ biggest fault? His perceived laziness which is a cardinal sin in the relentlessly ambitious famewhoring Kardashianland. With the NBA lockout leaving him jobless for the time being, Kris, 26, has reportedly been partying while Kim juggles multiple projects and foots the bill for his new A-list lifestyle.
A family friend reveals that just days before Kim celebrated her 31st birthday in Las Vegas, the two “had it out.” A family friend reveals: “She told him he needs to do something productive. The greed work ethic in that family really means something. He needs to get off his ass, like, yesterday.”
Even worse, Kim is now beginning to question whether she should have married a pro athlete who’s 5 years younger someone she had only known nine months. “On some levels,” says the friend, “she feels like she made a mistake.” Wowzers.
UsWeekly adds that the couple got into a big blowout on October 16 as Kim exploded when she returned to the Gansevoort Park hotel, their temporary home in New York City, from a promotional trip to the United Arab Emirates (she reportedly received $1 mil for that trip). After four days apart, Kim was hoping to find an eager husband waiting to spend quality time with her, but instead Kris was nowhere to be found.
“He was with friends at a bar watching football,” says the family friend. “She was not psyched.” Adding to the couple’s issues is the fact that Kris has not been hitting the gym or working on his basketball skills during the NBA lockout. “Kris was supposed to be training when Kim was away.” And Kim was “extremely upset” to find out he hadn’t been doing that. “She told him this sh*t needs to stop,” says the friend. “He literally has nothing to do right now. He and his friends have milked the whole Kardashian thing: It was bottle service and table and free everything everywhere he went.”
With all their marital issues laid out (there’s even more mentioned in the latest issue of UsWeekly magazine out on newstands now), the mag states having a baby is indefinitely on hold for the couple. In fact, Kim has done a 180 on having a baby. If you recall, she stated back in June that she wanted to be pregnant “by the end of the year.” Fast forward to today and she is singing a much different tune.
“We’re going to wait,” she recently said. “We want to spend some time together and enjoy each other. Give me, like, a year. Then we’ll talk babies!”
Insiders however aren’t so sure the couple will make it a year. “I’m not saying they’re getting divorced tomorrow,” says a family friend. “But it’s much harder than she anticipated.”
Sources tell the mag that moving to L.A. is going to prove to be a “real test” for the couple.
Must say I’m absolutely not shocked these two are already having major issues just 2 months into their marriage. The #1 mistake Kimmie made was to start filming the Kourtney & Kim Take NY reality show immediately after their wedding. These two literally got married in front of cameras, went on their honeymoon — with paparazzi in tow, and then went to NYC to start filming a reality show. Where’s the alone time? To, you know, get to know each other as husband and wife? As much of a famewhore Kimmie is, even I was shocked she sold her honeymoon pictures. On top of having E! cameras and paparazzi always in their faces, they are spending tons of time apart due to Kim’s constant traveling for work and promotional appearances.
I however believe the biggest mistake was filming a reality show right away. Khloe Kardashian was smart about her marriage and waited over a year after marrying Lamar before filming their own spin-off. Why didn’t Kim do the same? Especially with someone like Kris who is so far removed from the Hollywood lifestyle. Plus Kris is only 26 years old while Kimmie is 31. A 26-year-old professional athlete who now has fame and access to more women than ever? If you guessed a recipe for disaster, you guessed right! So we have to ask again…

TELL US – SHOCKED THAT THIS IS GOING SO BAD SO FAST? DO YOU THINK THEY’LL MAKE IT A YEAR? FEEL BAD FOR KIM?
Well, I guess we can now say “it” has been brought. During the game night from hell on last week’s Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, new girl Brandi Glanville challenged Kim Richards to “Bring it, b!thch!” after feeling the wrath of the Richards sisters. While Brandi apologized to Kyle Richards in the following episode at an awkward spa day, Kim wanted nothing to do with the piranha named Brandi.
Kyle has since done damage control spoken out about the women’s behavior, but her sister Kim has remained relatively mum (save a tweet or two)…until now. In a blog on her twitter page, Kim addresses the fight, her actions, and that pesky little crystal meth accusation.
Kim begins, “Let me first start off by apologizing for the delay in my blogs. It has taken me some time to come to grips with certain events that have unfolded on the show. One event in particular is the situation that occurred on Game Night at Pam’s aka Dana’s (haha) That night was the first time I had ever met Brandi.”
She maintains, “For someone who doesn’t know me personally to outright accuse me of using crystal meth leaves me bewildered. Not only did she accuse me of using crystal meth, she accused me of using crystal meth on national television. Drug abuse isn’t something you just throw around as a jab. When Brandi uttered those words on camera, the only thing I could think of was ‘where the hell did that come from?’”
As you recall, it was Kim’s odd behavior and multiple bathroom trips that prompted the outburst while the three women were fighting. Kim is adamant that it wasn’t drug abuse but anxiety medication that is to blame for her very loopy demeanor.
She explains, “I told the others that night, that I had just left my doctors for treatment of my anxiety and panic disorder. I have suffered from this for many years. They knew he had given me medication for it. I found myself groggy, as this was a medication I had never taken before. That is why I was carrying my coffee with me. I should have gone home to lay down. Instead I went to shoot RHOBH. My doctors have been trying to determine which medication is right for me.” Perhaps she took this same medication while Adrienne and Paul were waiting on her to fly with them to the Kings game?
Kim takes a little responsibility for instigating the incident, admitting, “I know I was no angel that night. I am embarrassed that I fed into the negativity. I didn’t like the way I acted and that is not my character. When I said ‘I don’t want her on my team’ I was just joking with my sister. We have our own sibling banter and we get each other’s jokes. That’s my humor. It’s my fault for not making it obvious to Brandi that I was joking and for that I apologize.”
Kim alludes that Brandi’s excuse for her meltdown is more than a tad hypocritical. “By Brandi throwing out that accusation, it not only hurt me and my reputation, but hurt my children. Brandi was so concerned saying ‘don’t talk about my children’ But did she think for one moment about MY children when she carelessly threw those words out?” Kim makes a pretty valid point there.
She continues, “My kids have been devastated by her cruel words. My children and their friends and families watch this show as well. I can say that I am not embarrassed or apologetic for coming to my sister’s defense. I love my sister with all my heart no matter what ups and downs we go through. She always has my back and I will forever have hers.”
Kim doesn’t deny a past history of substance abuse. She says, “I’ll be the first to admit that I have struggled in the past with certain vices; but I have never in my life, EVER, used crystal meth. I have discussed openly my issues with alcohol. As many of you know, sobriety is a lifetime process, a process that is a priority in my life right now. I am grateful for the love and support of my children, family and dear friends.”
She ends the entry thanking her friends, family, and fans for the outpouring of support she has received since that uncomfortable to watch scene. Admittedly that accusation was ridiculous. Yes, Kim was acting wacky very odd, but crystal meth? This is, after all, Beverly Hills.
WHAT DO YOU THINK OF KIM’S RESPONSE? DID SHE TAKE ENOUGH RESPONSIBILITY FOR HER PART IN THE ALTERCATION? ARE YOU TEAM BRANDI OR TEAM KIM?
The latest is an In Touch Weekly cover story about the Real Housewives of New Jerseystars which states Joe was spotted with a “hot blonde” just weeks ago at a hotel!
According to In Touch, Joe was seen with a group of females at Harrah’s Resort in Atlantic City, N.J. — and Teresa was nowhere to be found. “He was drinking at the Waterfront Tower with four women,” including an attractive blonde, an onlooker says of the wild September night.
“At 2 a.m., I saw Joe leave a hotel room carrying his duffel bag. He looked like he didn’t want to be noticed!” An insider close to Joe however denies he cheated: “About 30 women approached Joe that night, and he never went to a hotel room.” Really? 30 women???
Even worse, the mag states Teresa was made aware of the incident from a friend. She reportedly confronted Joe at home one day and he denied everything. Teresa is however said to be growing more weary of Joe’s extracurriculars especially after he was “caught” on a dinner date with Davana Medina on September 27.
While Davana maintains it was just a friendly dinner, a pal tells In Touch her boyfriend dumped her after the picture of her and Joe surfaced. Wowzers.
In other Teresa news, our RHONJ insider is telling us that Teresa and Joe continue to make enemies and even states that Teresa, who always brags about not having a nanny, is not the hands on mom she badly wants the world to believe she is.
First our source informs us the Giudices continue to alienate the people in their lives. “Not only are the cast members of the show not her friends anymore, her other real life “friends” have jumped ship,” the source tells Reality Tea. “They said Teresa uses them for rides for her kids. Her one friend’s husband has a driver and Joe asks to use him all the time. The same couple has a lot of money and Joe has asked the husband to put businesses in his name.”
If you recall, Joe’s driving license is currently suspended. In fact, a shocking report came out last year stating Joe’s license has been suspended a total of 9.4 years out of the last 20 years.
Our source adds that while Teresa likes to point the finger at people who have help (she has put sister-in-law Melissa Gorga on blast in the past for having a nanny), Teresa actually has A LOT of help with her kids these days all due to her pursuit of fame.
“I know Teresa’s babysitter well. She watches all four children ALL the time. She drives them everywhere, takes them to birthday parties, and just about everything else,” says our insider. “Teresa is very uninvolved in her children’s lives. She has been for a while. Her main focus is how to build her empire so she can remain “on top.”
The source adds, “Teresa doesn’t value people or friendships. Teresa values possessions, money, status, and looks. She is a narcissist.”
Our source even supplied us with a picture of Joe and Teresa with their babysitter/nanny Shauna. That picture is below.
In the meantime, Teresa is speaking out, denying she is behind the latest In Touch Weekly cover story which alleges Jacqueline Laurita used to be a stripper. Jacqueline had stated Teresa was behind it.
“I don’t play crazy Twitter games & threaten people, but I have to defend myself on this one: I don’t have a “contract” with any magazine,” tweeted Teresa. “Saw the In Touch mag this week. I’M on the cover WITH Jac & Caroline for our “secrets.” Don’t like the story. Had nothing to do with it.”
Hard to believe Teresa didn’t have some sort of deal with the mag as she graced their cover a number of times this summer, each time granting them exclusive interviews and photos.
Also want to add that there’s nothing wrong with Teresa being a working mom and getting help with her kids. It is however very hypocritical for her to constantly point out the fact that Melissa has a nanny while she doesn’t, when in reality, she has more help with her children.
You can read more of the Joe story in the latest issue of In Touch Weekly.
TELL US – THOUGHTS ON THE JOE CHEATING REPORTS? AND ON TERESA NOT BEING AS HANDS ON WITH HER KIDS AS SHE WOULD LIKE THE PUBLIC TO BELIEVE?
Jill Zarin is doing what she does best – running her mouth! In a new interview the out-spoken former Real Housewives of New York star talks being fired, doing more reality TV (oh no!), and the unfortunate side to C (or is it D?)-List fame.
Contrary to what we all know in our hearts to be true, Jill claims she was “prepared” for being let-go from RHONY. Telling Parade, “I had sort of an inkling over the summer that the show might take a turn,” she admits. “As a family, we weren’t sure if coming back for a fifth season was going to be the best road for me right now, but we were waiting until Bravo made their decision.”
“I believe that what’s meant to be is meant to be, so I sort of let it happen,” she explains of her feelings about being publicly fired. “If they asked me back and that was my path, so be it. And if they said that they wanted to make a change for the cast and that was going to be my final season, I was certainly ok with that.”
“In television, it’s about what you can do to be more dramatic and keep the viewers,” she states, echoing exactly what many fans believe is behind a lot of the cray-cray.
Agreeing with another ex-housewife, Kelly Bensimon, Jill feels the show was a good experience, “I had a four-year run on a very successful show,” she comments. “I’m very proud of what I did. It was just a platform for me,” she explains of how Housewives impacted her life. “I’m grateful to Bravo for opening the door for me in this business that I never though I’d be in — the entertainment business.”
As for how fame has negatively affected her life, Jill claims a lot of the backlash has disappeared since the fans got what they wanted she left the show. “I really don’t take any kind of negativity personally,” she expects us to believe. And now that’s she’s away from the camera, Jill insists: “I am having the best time of my life,” revealing, “I got my happy back.”
“It’s really about this sort of character on TV. It’s interesting, when the show is airing, there’s a lot of chatter on the Internet, but then when the show is off the air they move on to Beverly Hills or New Jersey. I don’t feel any negativity right now.”
Jill also confirms she and fellow mean girl, Bitchtress Countess Luann de Lesseps are still friends. “I’m very close with LuAnn still and Sonja [Morgan] and I have a good relationship. Just because I’m not on the show doesn’t mean that I’m not happy for them.”
And of course – the news we’ve all be dreading – Jill threatens promises a return to television! “It won’t be the last time (I hope) that I’ll be on television. I have a couple things that I’m in the middle of that I can’t share yet.” There have been reports stating Jill is trying to pitch a reality show that will involve both her and Patti Stanger! And Patti might just be available for that show as ratings for the Millionaire Matchmaker continue to dip this season, averaging less than a million viewers per episode, in addition to her recent faux pas.
Finale Time! Project Runway has finally come to an end. And I have to say; I may seriously be done with this series following last night’s results. I won’t give anymore away for those who have not yet watched (or Googled).
It’s two-days before fashion week and everyone is in a tizzy! Tim Gunn greets the designers in the workroom and announces he is furious at the crack-smocking judges’ critiques of the mini collections. He offers the real final three props and calls the judges out on their cray-cray; although did I hear him say he loved Eyebrows’ Grecian catsuit?! I think he just said that to be nice and to point out clearly and emphatically that little miss Anya had no business taking her messy used “intimate tapes” sheets to fashion week. In fact he told her as much! That’s the spirit, Tim. The old Tim we know and love! Tim announces a surprise gift! An additional $500 to spend at Piperline Mood to buy whatever they want!
Anya is over-whelmed by her lack of a collection and starts to panic. Viktor announces he will be re-making his fabulous grey gown?! At Mood, Viktor demonstrates he has been spending too much time with Eyebrows as he gravitates towards sheer – and not just sheer, cheetah print sheer!
