The 43-year-old mother of 2 posed for Playboy back in March of last year, and according to Kelly, her reasons for posing include teaching her daughters and others about a good body image, while also getting sweet revenge on her mean costars.
“I showed like 80 percent. A little boobie, a little butt, ankles,” Kelly told Popeater. “The pictures actually make me look thinner than I was at the time. I really ate a lot. I wanted to be my normal body shape. I wanted to look like myself. Everyone else was on a diet and I was like, ‘No! I want to be myself.’”
Kelly then goes on to add that she also posed to teach her two young daughters, Sea Louis, 12, and Thaddeus Ann, 10, about a healthy body image plus to “be sexy and have fun” later on in their lives. “I think some people were wondering … I have two kids, isn’t that bad? But I think no; I want my kids to be happy and healthy and later on in their lives, be sexy and have fun. I don’t want them to think that having an eating disorder is cool, because it’s not!”
Reason #3? To exact revenge on her costars includingBethenny Frankelwhom she believes bullied her on the RHONY. “I think the ladies were shocked by it,” revealed Kelly. “I think they thought, ‘We tried to take you down and now you are doing Playboy, what?! And now I have Playboy so they are like, ‘Wait a minute. This is not working!’”
Ah, nice to have the old cra-cra Kelly back.

And it should be as Vicki will file for divorce though in a very recent interview, she implied she would be open to a reconciliation with Donn. Also o`n the finale tonight titled “Girl Fight,” the season concludes with a bang as we finally get to see the altercation between Jeana and Tamra that Bravo has been teasing us with for months. Vicki comes home from her recent stint in the hospital, but feels well enough to host her annual fall party. At the party, Tamra doesn’t take kindly to what she believes is Jeana bad-mouthing her around Orange County, and all hell breaks loose. Watch a sneak peek below! The episode airs at 10/9c.
Watch What Happens Live - Vicki was the scheduled guest but it seems her appearance had to be rescheduled. Replacing Vicki will bePeggy Tanousand hockey player Sean Avery.
In other OC news, it’s no secret that (much like the ladies on the majority of the franchises), the OC Housewives are not the best of friends. These woman do cliques and cattiness better than most high school mean girls. Vicki Gunvalson is no stranger to the drama, especially this season, but could she be tiring of all the back-stabbing?
In a recent interview with E.Online, Vicki opens up about her future plans and her young co-stars. As for what’s next for Vicki, she has penned a book (because that’s what Housewives do when they don’t fancy themselves pops stars) entitled More Than a Housewife, and envisions herself on her own “Clean House” type show, helping women with clutter and hoarding issues.
However, Vicki’s most telling statements are aimed at her younger Orange County cohorts, Gretchen Rossi and Alexis Bellino. Vicki states the obvious, “Alexis and Gretchen are thirty—we’ve got nothing in common. Nothing.” She elaborates, “[I want to] have more substance behind who I am. I think this show has really gone into an area that—I don’t work out five hours a day, I don’t stand in front of a mirror, I don’t do all things that we’re [supposed to be doing].” Meow. If that’s not a dig (albeit a legitimate dig) at the two youngest, blondest housewives, I don’t know what is.
Apparently, the disconnect with the women makes filming difficult. “[T]hey don’t respect me and I don’t respect them, so it’s tough to film cohesively with that.”
Vicki also goes on the record with respect to Alexis’eating disorder admission. She exclaims, “Well, obviously she doesn’t eat! It was obvious, she has no body fat…It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to know the girl’s got an eating disorder. I mean, really. I mean, she has got the most perfect body in the world, but you have got to eat in order to sustain life. I never knew it, but you can look at her to say, there’s definitely some eating issues.” I mean, Vicki makes a valid point, I mean, even if she doesn’t say it in the most sensitive manner, I mean.
Vicki reveals that she and Alexis get into it on the season’s reunion. However, dear readers, we have one more episode to watch before we get to see that.

It’s official, the fourth season of the Jersey Shore will premiere on August 4!
While the cast continues to film in the city of Florence, Italy, MTV made the official announcement this weekend. The press release promises the cast will “bring their trademark hilarity, fist-pumping and family dysfunction to the beautiful country” of Italy.
It gets even better as MTV has also green-lighted a fifth season. Yes, the network also announced that Season five will begin production in June. Once filming ends in Italy, the entire cast will return to the surf and sand of Seaside Heights, New Jersey right away to begin filming.
TMZ is however reporting that the cast is currently unaware of MTV’s plans to start filming season five right away. The cast was under the impression they would get a one month break and start filming in August. In fact, most of them are booked for club appearances all through July.
Sources say the cast will NOT be happy once they hear the news as they would rather get a break from filming and make money doing club appearances. The sources also add that the cast could decide to band together and stage a revolt. Oh the horror.
What is certain is that the 4th season will be filled with drama. As we reported, the poster couple for dysfunctional relationships, Ronnie and Sammi, are once again back together and fighting. Ronnie and The Situation also got into a fist fight which left Ronnie with bleeding knuckles and The Sitch with a shiner on his face. Plus Snookicrashed into a cop car though she was left unhurt. Should be a fun season!

It appears new Atlanta housewife Marlo Hampton has an extensive criminal past.
We reported last week that Marlo had joined the Real Housewives of Atlantaseries and was even photographed filming with the cast. And while it was mentioned that she had one arrest in her past for assaulting another female over a man, little was known that she had actually been arrested a total of 7 times that we know of!
The 35-year-old (DOB 02/07/1976) Tampa, FL native was first arrested on 05/26/1999 for Aggravated Battery causing bodily harm with a weapon. Following that arrest, it was all downhill for Marlo as she would later be arrested four more times for violating her probation alone.
And then came yet another arrest on 09/09/2002 for writing bad checks. Wowzers. Marlo issued a statement to Bossip this week acknowledging her criminal past while also stating it made her the “better woman” she is today. The statement is below -
“Let me first state that I am not ashamed of my past as that has helped me become a better woman today. We all have a past and my hard-knock childhood in and out of the Foster Care system is a reflection on a bigger issue we are faced with here in America, a broken Foster Care system. My present charge in life is to live with God in my heart and help young women especially from the foster care system avoid the challenges I faced. I’m more then just what is being said of me and I have a story to tell.”
Marlo, who is engaged to NFL player Charles Grant(rumored to be Nene Leakes‘ former fling), was reportedly brought on the show to stir up some drama with the Nene. Below, bigger images of Marlo’s mugshots plus more arrest details.
Lesson #1 – Do not go on a reality show if you have a minimum of 7 arrests in your past.

It’s week two in Morocco for the ladies of the Real Housewives of New York, and these girls continue to bring the drama. “Riad Divided” begins with the last week’s fade to black moment regarding Ramona’s fortune. Luann tries to reign in Kelly’s translation of the psychic, Alex looks equal parts disturbed and model-esque, Sonja sobs for her friend’s prophecy and Jill longs for her snakes.
Ramona seems mostly unphased by the prediction, instead rationalizing the reading by the fact that she knows other women recognize how wonderful her Mario is. Sonja reveals that her tears are less about Ramona’s situation and more about the insecurities brought on by her last marriage. When Sonja tries to speak to Ramona about these feelings, Ramona, in all of her sensitivity, reminds Sonja that their situations are different since Ramona married an age-appropriate man for love, while Sonja clearly married an old bag for his cash.
Even with this awkward exchange, Ramona and Sonja are able to reflect on their friendship and realize that despite their different pasts, they can be supportive friends to one another. Okay. If I had been Ramona, I would have slapped Sonja, but on the flip-side, if I was Sonja and Ramona made the “he’d been married four times before you, what did you expect?” comments to me, Ramona would have been hanging out with the snake on Jill’s head from last week.

First Camille, star of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, decided to seek full custody of her two kids with Kelsey on Thursday. This comes weeks after Kelsey originally filed to get primary custody of the children, Mason, 9, and Jude, 6.
In the court papers, Camille claims Kelsey’s filings were “done in order to create a false impression to the media and to wrongfully disparage” her.
Also in the court filing, Camille aims to prevent her kids from spending the summer with Kelsey away from California. “Jude has repeated kindergarten twice,” the documents state. “He is now working with tutors so that he can enter first grade at a public elementary school beginning in the Fall of 2011. In order to get into first grade Jude will have to do a math study program for the entire summer in Los Angeles.”
Things took an uglier turn when sources close to Camille informed TMZ that Kelsey only wanted primary custody of his son, and not his daughter with Camille. Kelsey’s lawyer denied the report to TMZ yesterday.
However, Camille’s camp sent TMZ a document this morning, from April, in which Kelsey does indeed ask for their son Jude to come live with him, while Mason stays with Camille. “Kelsey proposes … Kelsey shall have primary physical custody of Jude and Camille shall have primary physical custody of Mason,” the document states.
Kelsey’s rep, Stan Rosenfield, then told TMZ, “Despite the fact that those connected with Camille Grammer seem to be hand delivering confidential documents to TMZ and other media outlets, we will continue not to make public statements about their private matters which can and apparently does beg for misinterpretation.”
As of the moment, it appears the case will go to trial. The Grammers currently have a temporary arrangement in place until July 2.

In the 1 minute clip, posted below, we get to see a lot of Kardashian drama! Kourtney Kardashian is feeling the pressure to get married when she reveals she wants to have another baby with beau Scott Discick, who still seems to be battling his issues with alcohol. “Don’t you think you should get married before you have another baby?” asks a none too happy Kris Jenner.
And speaking of Kris, the pimp momager ponders changing her last name back to Kardashian which she deems as more marketable. Her husband Bruce Jenner is of course not happy with that idea.
The trailer also seems to focus a lot on Kim Kardashian’s relationship with now fiance Kris Humphries. The two get romantic during a sexy vacation, and the trailer teases the engagement footage with an audio of Kris asking,” Will you marry me?”
Also Rob Kardashiangets into it with sister Kim and makes her cry when he insults her by calling her a “whore.” The new season debuts June 12 and the trailer video is below!
In other news, Kim has already began to cash in on her new engagement. The Hollywood Reporter states that Kim sold her engagement story plus photos to PEOPLE magazine for $300,000! In comparison, sister Khloe Kardashian received that same amount for her wedding photos exclusive.
Experts are predicting Kim’s wedding photos should net her well over $3 million.
