On last night’s season 5 premiere of the Millionaire Matchmaker, Patti Stanger took a break from giving her unsolicited love advice to A-list celebrities to return to her day job of finding love for the single millionaires of Los Angeles. She begins the way she ended season four by bashing the singles of New York. Did she forget that is her home territory?
The biggest catch this season is not that Patty shrank 2 dress sizes, but that a certain heart-shaped rock is missing from her left hand. Yes, Patty is back to criticizing matchmaking everyone in LA including herself. Her sidekicks Destin and Rachel are in tow. I was glad to see despite the new single Patty, new office, new recruiters, and new city, that Destin and Rachel kept the same hairstyles.

Russell, husband ofTaylor Armstrong, was found hanging in his bedroom on Mulholland Drive. Sources tell TMZ the L.A. City Fire Department arrived at Russell’s home on Monday night and pronounced him dead at 8:16 PM.
Authorities are saying they did not find a suicide note. This tragedy comes less than a month after Taylor filed for divorce alleging physical and verbal abuse. After Taylor revealed her abuse allegations, it was discovered that other exes of Russell (an ex-wife and an ex-girlfriend) had also alleged physical abuse and had filed restraining orders against him in the past. Russell also had other legal issues, including bankruptcy and several lawsuits.
Russell and Taylor have a 5-year-old daughter – Kennedy. Russell is survived by other children as well. Russell was 47-years-old. We will bring you more news once it becomes available.
UPDATE – Russell had been having a hard time dealing with his past issues becoming public as earlier this year, he had his attorney contact us about taking down a report we did about his past legal issues.
UPDATE #2 – RadarOnline is reporting Taylor has been “hysterical” since finding out about Russell’s suicide last night. Taylor “has been up all night. She is hysterical, and can barely speak. She has no idea why Russell would do this. She doesn’t know how she is going to be able to tell her daughter, Kennedy,” a source close to the situation reveals.
UPDATE #3 – Russell’s attorney tells TMZ Russell was at his wits end over his impending divorce from Taylor in addition to his mounting financial problems in the days leading to his death. Russell’s lawyer Ronald Richards states, “I feel bad because his credit cards weren’t working … He had tremendous financial problems.” Richard adds that even if Russell has a will, he doesn’t have any assets.
Following months of speculation, it has now been confirmed that the Real Housewives of Miamiwill be returning for a second season!
Housewife Alexia Echevarria confirmed the news via her twitter page! “Dear Followers, Yes, #RHOM2 is coming back but there is going to be some BIG changes and that’s all I can say…… so Stay tuned!” tweeted Alexia.
As of the moment, there is no word yet on the casting changes we can expect though the general consensus seems to be that Larsa Pippen will not be returning. The reason? Well for starters, she is no longer residing in Miami since moving to Chicago with her husband and family.
At the end of the day, it’s safe to assume most fans of the show will be okay with any of the housewives getting the axe as long as Mama Elsa Patton returns! Let’s face it, Elsa was THE star of the show.

Well, the holidays have finally ended on Real Housewives of New Jersey, so that means the housewives can just get down to the business of being their normal ridiculous, crazy, over-the-top selves without Jesus’ birthday or New Years Invitation issues or friendsgivings to distract us from the real problems at hand – Ashley. Yep, this episode was all about everyone’s favorite House-child: Ashley “The Hat” Holmes, but luckily it seems her days on Franklin Lake soil are limited!
Things begin with Teresa announcing she is putting that whole bankruptcy fiasco behind her (too bad, the worst of that is only yet to come) and focusing on the future– most specifically her newest cookbook, for which she is hosting a family photoshoot, sans, of course, her brother. Teresa mentions that what’s important to her is: “good food, good sex, expensive stuff she can’t afford, fame-whoring, starting drama, and family and friends.” After several mild meltdowns from children and husband, the shoot wraps. I wonder if Papa Giudice’s wine was on hand for the crew – because they definitely needed it!

Ding dong the witch is deadKate Gosselin’s reality TV career is officially over!
Just moments ago, the TLC network announced it has canceled Kate’s reality show Kate Plus 8.
“TLC has decided not to renew another season of Kate Plus 8,” the network said in a statement. “By the end of this season Kate Plus 8 will have hit the 150 episode mark (including Jon & Kate Plus 8); an exceptional milestone. TLC hopes to check in with Kate and the family periodically with specials in the future.”
The cancellation of Kate’s show comes as no surprise as we reported back in April that ratings for the show were at their lowest in years. At that time, new episodes of Kate Plus 8 were averaging just over 874,000 viewers per episode.
Earlier this year, a report came out stating – “If her ratings drop to the 1 million mark this will be her last season, and then Kate would have to get a real job.”
Well folks, it now appears Kate, 36, will indeed have to get a real J.O.B to care for her plus eight.

Following what can only be described as the most dramatic season yet, the ladies gather together in the same room to rehash some of the season’s most dramatic moments. Meeka and Tami will get into it again, while Royce will of course argue with the “circle.” John Salley returns to host the show again this year. It airs tonight at 8/7c on VH1 and a preview clip is below! There are also rumors that Eric Williams might make an appearance on the show (part 1 or part 2) to discuss the drink tossing incident.
In other news, the show’s resident sh*t starter executive producer Shaunie O’Neal is now speaking out against the recent fighting on the show. This is after it came out that the episode featuring the Tami Roman and Meeka Claxtonfight was one of the highest rated of the season. In fact, last week’s finale episode with the drink throwing incident was its highest rated in over 2 years with over 2.6 million viewers tuning in.
Well Shaunie is now claiming she is embarrassed by what the show has become. “When I started the show I really just wanted to follow this group of ladies around. We all have a common bond; we understand each others’ lives. It started as that. Since then, it’s taken on a life of its own,” Shaunie told FOX411’s Pop Tarts. “I never imagined it would be a group of ladies fighting and arguing that way that they do. That was never part of the plan.”
It didn’t end there as Shaunie reveals she feels conflicted that the episodes with the fights garner higher ratings. “I hate that it has to be a fight or an argument that gives us 4.2 million viewers. I hate that, but it’s something where I’m working as hard as I can to show some type of balance, because it is there. We’re going to try to do more of that in season four,” she said. “I know that people love the fighting and the arguing, but I do want to have some positive in there somewhere.” Right Shaunie. Are you buying it?
It’s battle of the Bridezillas in Kardashian-Kingdom, but only one them is the actual bride! And one of those ‘zillas is, you guessed it “momzilla,” Kris Jenner. Kim Kardashianrecently spoke to Extra about her mom’s special day, revealing she had to put her stilleto down on the 500+ people guest list! Wait, that many people actually like Kim or Kris J?
Apparently so, Kim reveals: “I’ll look at the list and I’ll be like, ‘Why is this person on the list? Why is this person? I don’t know this person. This is your friend.’ This is my wedding. I gotta approve the list!”
Kim’s rumored 10 MILLION DOLLAR wedding (do they realize there is famine in Somalia?) will take place on August 20th in Montecito, CA and will include a 10-tier cake – one for each million spent, I suppose – that is modeled after Prince William’s and Kate Middleton’s wedding cake. Oh, my…
With all the big budget details to contend with, not to mention the money reported to be made off her nuptials, Kim has a lot to stress out about, which is supposedly turning her into her mother making her quite the bridezilla. Kim’s future in-laws are feeling annoyed that the special day, which allegedly will include their son, is alllll about Kardashian! A “source” (re: Kim’s future MIL), discloses: “This is a Kardashian event, and the Humphries family is nothing more than invited guests. They’re playing along because they don’t want to make waves, but they’re not happy with the way they’re being treated.”
Making things even worse the Kardashians are supposedly pressuring Kris Humphries to choose one of their people, like Kim’s brother Rob Kardashian or Lamar Odum, to act as groomsman since that’s what the network and the fans of Keeping Up With The Kardashians want to see!
Kris’ friends are being relegated to sub-par roles as ushers, making them “annoyed and pissed” that they are essentially being kut out of their friend’s special day, furthermore none of them are too impressed with his future wife: “None of them like Kim, and they don’t think she’s the right person for Kris.” Yikes! Well, I guess they won’t be interested in guest starring in the a Kim & Kris reality show Kris’ pimpmomager-in-law probably has in the works!
Meanwhile, with less than a week until her made for TV wedding, Kimmie stepped out last night at the 2011 ‘Do Something’ Awards showing off a slimmer figure! Photos of Kimmie at the awards show below -

In a statement to TMZ, Camille states: “Some joking remarks I made to Kyle Richards got picked up and caused my ex-husband great embarrassment and for that I sincerely apologize. While the media added words and blew it out of proportion, I acknowledge my part in this and regret my remarks.”
She adds, “I offered a 50/50 physical split with joint custody and was soundly rejected… Now he will only communicate through lawyers and others and I fear the message we’re sending our children.” Well surely telling the world their father has a small package can’t be good for the kids.
