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?

It appears those pesky rumors of Joe Giudice cheating on his wife Teresa Giudice simply refuse to go away.

The latest is an In Touch Weekly cover story about the Real Housewives of New Jersey stars 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.

It seems that Jill’s return to television is inevitable especially since she just signed with a new talent management group, Octogan – which also represents fellow-reality stars Piers Morgan, Dr. Drew Pinsky, and Nancy O’Dell, There Jill will be represented in part by The Hills alum, Lo Bosworth!

THOUGHTS ON JILL’S INTERVIEW? DO YOU BELIEVE JILL KNEW SHE WAS GETTING FIRED AND IS HAPPY AWAY FROM THE SHOW? WHAT DO YOU THINK JILL’S NEXT TELEVISION PROJECT WILL BE?


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!

It’s the marriage that was never meant to be! You know the old saying: “If you marry for money, you will earn every penny” and I’m afraid that’s just the case with poor old Kim Kardashian and her hubby for the minute Kris Humphries-Kardashian!

A new report states that Kimmie settled for Kris as her second or third choice as she was simply eager to date a starring basketball player – any at all. Desperate, much Kimster? Or was E! pushing another Kardashian-Basketball love story?

An insider tells Wetpaint Entertainment that E! and Kim “were interested in having her date a big New York athlete for the debut season of Kourtney & Kim Take New York, and the Knicks were their first choice.” But I thought this was a reality show? #sarcasm.

Kimmie’s initial pick was much younger much richer basketball player, Danilo Gallinari! The New York Knicks were apparently approached by representative of E! to see if Danilo, 22, would have an interest in earning a little extra dough dating Kimmie for a chance at a little C-List fame on reality TV!

“Danilo said he would love to meet Kim but was not interested in dating her or being on a reality show,” an insider explains. Apparently the network didn’t want to take no for an answer and tried to convince the poor Danilo that “it would be great for his career.” Wisely he turned them down – either he or his handlers are smart cookies!

Well almost immediately after Danillo ran screaming back to Italy (where coincidentally Kim honeymooned), Kimmie was latched onto another much younger man – her current hubster, Kris, then of the New Jersey Nets. The Nets wouldn’t say if the network begged them to loan them some eligible menz so Kimmie didn’t look a desperate spinster on national television. Drat.

E! is also not commenting on this story because, naturally, it’s complete and utter BS. Sure it is. Kim claims she met Kris courtside after seeing him play and a friend introduced him.

Whatever the case, Kris may have had enough of his marriage of convenience and its demanding ways! Life & Style is reporting that Kris is over the constant camera crews invading his marriage and that being filmed 24/7 makes him uncomfortable. So much so that he is threatening not to film for upcoming seasons of Kim’s zillion horrible TV shows, telling her: “‘I’ll only be your little TV husband for a few more weeks.”

“Kris wants out of filming,” an insider reports. “They’ve had no time without a camera. He knows he signed up for this, but I think it’s weighed on him.” Especially since that Kardashian money is slow to trickle in! “Kris makes only about $20,000 per episode,” the insider reveals. “He wants more to make it worthwhile!” Of course, it’s all about the money with this crew! I guess that is pretty much the only redeeming benefit to being a Kardashian accoutrement!

Apparently Kris isn’t afraid to challenge his much more famous wife and “is really the only person who stands up to her,”

“He says no when everyone else says yes,” a friend reveals. “I think secretly it challenges her and turns her on. No one says no to her except Kris. It frustrates her, but it ignites her.” Um… yuck. And I don’t believe you.

DO YOU BELIEVE THE RUMORS THAT KIM AND E! WERE SCANNING THE NBA CIRCUIT FOR POTENTIAL MATES? OR DOES KIM REALLY LOVE KRIS? DO YOU THINK KIM AND KRIS WILL LAST OR ARE THEY ON THEIR WAY TO DIVORCE COURT?

As I’m sure you all know by now, Chaz Bono was voted off Dancing With the Stars this week. His elimination has sparked a lot of emotion (from both fans and haters), as well as many questions about the show. Is it a dance competition or a popularity contest? Are the judges comments actually constructive or just entertaining for shock value? And of course, the biggest question of all, is this Maksim Chmerkovskiy’s show? ;)

Chaz expressed disdain for Bruno Tonioli after the judge called him an Ewok a few weeks ago and a penguin on Monday. Taking the high road (with a bit of a dig), he tells Life and Style, “I don’t have to wake up and be Bruno tomorrow, I get to wake up and be me.” That seems to be putting a positive spin on the situation.

His dance partner, Lacey Schwimmer, elaborates , “I think they need to focus on actually judging dancing skills rather than a personality or the look. The judges and comments and scores kind of set it all up [for us to be eliminated in the public vote].” While I agree with that logic, I also feel like people who get lots of audience votes can stay around longer than improving dancers with less of a fan base. Must be the nature of the beast.

Regardless, Chaz is proud of his time on the show, as any DWTS contestant should be–especially those with no prior dancing experience. He gained a lot from the experience, stating, “I learned that I was capable of so much more than I thought I was.” Kudos to anyone who is able to say that about anything in their lives!

While Chaz seems to be bowing out gracefully, his superstar mother Cher isn’t following suit. She had some very choice tweets for Bruno and Len Goodman. Taking to twitter, Cher vented, “Going Home is Fine but why insult him b4 he Goes! Maybe Rudeness & Flapping Arms take the place of TALENT….As for the Older Gentleman ….every Show Needs A Grumpy Old Man !” Hmmm….to whom could she be referring?

Carrie Ann Inaba was spared from Cher’s tirade. Chaz’s celebrity mother gave a shout out to the third judge, tweeting, “Thank u Carrie Ann 4 your Gentility u r beautiful inside & out.” Cher later continued, “The Chick is beautiful & Polite ! The Men suck.” You can’t really fault a mother for coming to the defense of her child, can you?

It’s a slippery slope…I’m trying not to take a stance, but I do have to applaud anyone who steps out of their comfort zone and sincerely seems to be trying to bring awareness to a cause near and dear, whether it is widely accepted or hyper-criticized. Do I think Chaz is a great decent dancer? He’s better than me, but that is not saying much. However, I think anyone who goes on this show, especially with no background in dance, is pretty courageous.

DWTS: DANCING COMPETITION OR POPULARITY CONTEST? DO YOU THINK CHAZ (AND HIS FANS) ARE MORE UPSET ABOUT THE ELIMINATION OR THE JUDGES’ COMMENTS? WHAT DO YOU THINK OF CHER’S REACTION?

Teen Mom 2 star Jenelle Evans and 2-year-old son Jace are recovering today after a car crash yesterday.

TMZ reports Jenelle, 20, alongside Jace and another female passenger were rushed to the hospital on Thursday after she crashed her SUV into a light pole.

The Wilmington, NC Police department told TMZ all three passengers were transported to a nearby hospital for minor injuries. Jenelle was driving the car while son Jace was in his car seat in the back.

The good news is all parties are doing well today, as evident by Jenelle’s tweets below, and cops tell TMZ there was no indication that drugs or alcohol played a role in the crash. The police are however still investigating.

Jenelle also took to her twitter, of course, to tell her side of the crash. Jenelle, who has had issues with drugs in the past, wanted to make it clear neither alcohol or drugs played a role in the crash. “LOOK TMZ.. Crashed into a pole in a parking lot going 10mph no drugs involved I’m clean. Jace is fine I’m injured in the hospital alone,” tweeted Jenelle.

She later added: “My mom took jace home and wouldn’t wait for me.” Jenelle’s mom Barbara Evans currently has custody of Jace, and just last month, the two got into an altercation during which cops were called.

A photo from the crash scene is below.

A day after In Touch Weekly reported she used to be a former stripper, Real Housewives of New Jersey star Jacqueline Laurita is now denying the report… sort of.

At first it appeared Jacqueline wasn’t going to respond to the shocking report, but she eventually did on Wednesday night when she took to her twitter page and wrote: “Chris and I want to share with you our wedding song…” The tweet included a link to a song by artist T-Pain titled “I’m In Love With A Stripper.”

Jacqueline later tweeted: “ITS A JOKE!!! GET IT????” She then added, “In case you were wondering… No, the rumors aren’t true. ( You know the ones;0) ).”

Jacqueline’s former friend and RHONJ costar Danielle Staub also chimed in yesterday, maintaining Jacqueline was indeed a past stripper.

Hours after the report came out yesterday, Danielle, who has admitted to being a former stripper and then some, tweeted: “It only takes a moment to tell a lie but a lifetime to cover up! The truth always comes out! I’m proud that I’ve always kept it real.”

And when a fan asked Danielle why she never revealed Jacqueline’s alleged secret (though she sort of did weeks ago), Danielle replied: “That’s bc I’m not a backstabbing bitch I kept it to myself bc JL was so weak and asked me to not say anything.”

As we reported yesterday, Teresa Giudice also insinuated Jacqueline was a former stripper when she tweeted last month that she had “lots of ex-stripper friends…”She made that tweet the same day Jacqueline was making negative tweets about her.

As for Jacqueline’s friendship with Teresa UsWeekly is reporting that it is over for good and that Jacqueline has vowed she “will never speak to Teresa again.” She definitely has good reason as Jacqueline believes Teresa was the one who supplied In Touch Weekly with the stripper story.

The source reveals that Caroline Manzo is also done with Tre, stating that Caroline hasn’t spoken to Teresa in months.” Our RHONJ insider told us the same thing weeks ago stating Caroline was NOT on speaking terms with Teresa, even before the Posche Fashion show drama. “Every time they get together to film, everyone’s fighting with Teresa,” says the source to UsWeekly. The ladies just wrapped up filming on season 4.

Teresa’s sister-in-law Melissa Gorga added: “Caroline is upset over the charade.” When it comes to the status of the Gorga/Giudice relationship, sources reveal it’s still definitely strained. “Teresa and Melissa still communicate for family stuff, but things are strained,” a show insider states.

As for the reunion drama, Melissa admits, “It was dramatic and painful to watch.”

Meanwhile, perhaps to further clear up the rumors that she met her hubby Chris Laurita while stripping, Jacqueline revealed on her blog today on exactly how she met her husband. Jacqueline wrote that she met Chris in “the summer of 1996 when Ashley was only five years old,” adding that at the time, she was renting “a chair in a salon doing hair as a licensed cosmetologist in Las Vegas.”

Jacqueline reveals she also did some modeling back then for “conventions that came to town.”  Jacqueline says she “modeled clothes, shoes, accessories, electronics, computers” etc.  She states she actually met Chris in Chicago during a trade show she was working at.
