Lisa Vanderpump, star and diva extraordinaire of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills is firing back at co-star Taylor Armstrong’s accusations that she may have leaked stories about her to the tabloids!

During Monday night’s episode, Taylor discovered an unflattering portrayal (is there any other kind?) of her marriage and her figure in a gossip column and accused Ms. Vanderfabulous of pedaling the story to the press! The indignity!

Taking to her Bravo blog, she calls out the notorious liar Taylor! “I had no idea that Taylor was accusing me of something so sneaky and despicable as going to the tabloids with her personal information,” Lisa fumes!

“That is deplorable, and as a woman with a conscience, who has many celebrity friends (where secrecy is crucial), and who also owns restaurants and is therefore privy to many situations shall we say, is an absolute insult, and I must say hurtful.” Wow!

Responding to Taylor’s accusations that Lisa may have had an ulterior motive for wanting to help, despite their rocky relationship, Lisa makes it clear she had no ill will in mind! “I knew Taylor to be in a situation that, from what she had told me, was a very difficult one. I have many times said to her, “I know we are not that close but if you ever need me, call me at any time of the day or night.” I always worried about her,” Lisa declares.

“Each time I saw her she was extremely emotional. She told us in Colorado that she didn’t eat and was losing weight at an alarming rate.” And she slams Taylorexic for misleading the ladies about the reason behind her drastic weightloss. “I feel foolish now as she later gave an interview regarding some new diet pills she’d been taking,” Lisa quips!

Lisa also insinuates that perhaps those with enormous elephantine skeletons in their closet should avoid the reality TV spotlight, as she describes why she chose to appear on RHOBH. “I have nothing to hide. I am honest and straight forward and not in the habit of being disloyal, and I try to be as supportive as possible of those close to me.”

Taylor has not responded to Lisa’s statements, as it appears she may have bigger issues to contend with. Star is reporting that Taylor’s drinking has become “out of control” since husband Russell Armstrong’s suicide. A source reveals “A pal told Taylor that she drinks too much,” and encouraged her to “go to rehab for the sake of her daughter.” The source also continues, “Taylor agreed and said she is open to going to some kind of rehab center.”

“Taylor doesn’t know that friends and family will have a real intervention with her if she doesn’t follow through with some kind of treatment,” the source adds. Gee… I wonder if Lisa is the “source”? Kidding, kidding.

Especially considering that Lisa describes the current state of her relationship with Taylor as being “much closer.” Why do I believe Lisa is more of a friends close, enemies closer kind of a girl?

And in some Lisa news I am truly excited to report, the in-the-know lady of all things fabulous has written a book! Oh my gosh – is it true? A housewives product I am actually interested in purchasing?!

Lisa’s first foray into writing, Simply Divine: A Guide to Easy, Elegant, and Affordable Entertaining, is now available for pre-order on Amazon and you better believe I pre-ordered mine!

The book which is touted as a guide to “easy elegance” the style for which Lisa is known, features “tips and tricks for creating the perfect gathering,” and “offers simple décor ideas and more than 50 recipes in mix-and-match menus for any kind of ‘Day’.” Fun!

Thoughts on Lisa’s blog? Do you believe she and Taylor are “much closer” or is this blog an indication of her true feelings? Do you think Taylor will seek help for her drinking problem? Are you excited about Lisa’s new book or is that just me?


Bethenny Frankel is talking exercise and alcohol – two of her favorite subjects – as she announces the addition of two more products to the Skinnygirl empire!

The uber skinny star of Bethenny Ever After recently did a sit-down with Self to talk exercise and her newly released, Bethenny’s Skinnygirl Workout DVD.

Revealing her exercise philosophy, Bethenny admits that in the past she was a “binge exerciser,” but has since changed her ways. “Now I’m a person who fits it into my lifestyle. It’s consistent, but not regular. I do it when I can. It ends up being 2 to 3 times a week.”

Bethenny’s workout DVD is yoga-centered and is divided into three 15-20 minute segments all geared towards the total body. “This morning, when my baby was sleeping, I did 45 minutes of yoga,” she says. “Each 15 minute section works out the entire body, so if it’s a day when you’re really crazed and you just want to get something in, you can do one segment and actually feel good instead of beating yourself up because you couldn’t fit in the whole thing.”

A big yoga fan (I can tell by her zen-like attitude), Bethenny describes the practice as “the only thing that I consistently need to do in my life.”

“It’s like getting a massage and exercise at the same time and it just keeps you lean,” she says of her new DVD, which includes a book of recipes to encourage healthy eating.

In other Bethenny news – guess what?! She is hawking even more products! I know you’re all totes excited to give her more of your hard earned money, so here’s your opportunity. In addition to her workout DVD, 150 Calorie Skinnygirl Bars full of ingredients “you can trust,” (like sodium benzoate?) will soon be on the market.

And Bethenny just debuted the newest Skinnygirl cocktail flavor: Skinnygirl White Cranberry Cosmo!

Announcing the newest low-cal bottled beverage from her website, Bethenny describes the drink as “the most fun, flirty and sexy cocktail you can drink.”

“I created the Skinnygirl White Cranberry Cosmo to give you a more elegant twist on a classic without the guilt. Finally, a pretty, flirty, clear cocktail that won’t stain your carpet or couch!” Hmmm… I don’t see the ingredients listed…

Thoughts on Bethenny’s New Workout DVD – Would you try it? Are you excited about the new Skinnygirl White Cranberry Cosmo?

It’s Jersey Shore vs. Governor Chris Christie take two, as the New Jersey Governor recently blocked a $420,000 tax credit that was promised to the production company behind the MTV hit show.

Gov. Christie, an outspoken critic of the Jersey Shore, did not mince his words or feelings in explaining why he vetoed the credit. He stated that he was “duty-bound” to stop taxpayer money from going to “a project which does nothing more than perpetuate misconceptions about the state and its citizens.”

While his reasons seem fair enough, Gov. Christie, who allowed tax credits for other TV shows and films to go forward, is now facing criticism from some who feel he went above and beyond by blocking this tax credit. A piece written by the NYDailyNews criticizes Christie for doing the same thing he attacks the show for — which is playing to the cheap seats.

The article states that while the Jersey Shore is indeed a trashy show, MTV spent $2.1 million filming in New Jersey and therefore deserved the $420,000 credit it applied for. The article adds that Christie’s decision could end up hurting NJ as companies thinking of filming in the state will now wonder if they could lose already-approved financial incentives because some politician “wants to score easy points.”

In other Shore news, Deena Cortese is now speaking out following the airing of the kiss seen around the world. One half member of ‘Team Meatballs’ explained her never-ending makeout session with Snooki during an appearance on the Tonight Show with Jay Leno.

Deena stated, “Me and [Snooki] make out when we’re drunk sometimes, it happens! Team meatballs! Meatball power! It was kind of stupid. The roommates were all being so lame and judgmental when they have seen it happen before! It was like, ‘why are you surprised?’”

Deena went on to add that another explanation for the makeout session was also the lack of guys in Italy. “I felt very lonely in Italy. A lot of them had boyfriends and I was like the single girl having a good time,” said Deena. “It was hard to find guys out there because some of them didn’t speak English, some of them hooked up with their sisters! It was hard to communicate.”

And speaking of Snooki, she is also getting media attention after she was pictured above over the weekend during an event in Atlantic City. Many media outlets credited her with a drastic weight loss (not really seeing this) to which she credited the Zantrex weight loss pill. She has an endorsement deal with them. Snooki tweeted, “Glad to hear reports that say I look good =) but it’s not because of HCG! Thanks @Zantrex!”

Moving on to tonight’s all new episode of the Jersey Shore. On the 9th episode this season titled “Three men and a Snooki,” Snooki is devastated over her big fight with Jionni, and decides to take a break from the relationship while also turning to drinking. Mike thinks it’s finally his chance to win her over, but it’s someone else who ends up comforting her. Meanwhile, Deena has a pregnancy scare.

The episode airs tonight on MTV at 10/9c.

And as for Snooki and boyfriend Jionniiiiii, they are still together! The Snooks tweeted the below photo of the two just hours ago with the caption “Always.”

Following a stint on Watch What Happens Live that left host Andy Cohen visibly disgusted in response to her homophobic and anti-Semitic remarks, things are getting worse for former reality star Patti Stanger!

Now one of Patti’s former clients (who left the club after being dissatisfied with the service she received) is speaking out about the behind the scenes workings of The Millionaire Matchmaker. And surprise, surprise – Patti is just as abrasive off camera!

Bryce Gruber, who appeared on the show as a Millionairess in season four, shares her experience working with Patti and the club. According to Bryce, Patti (who is Jewish, herself) insulted the Jewish-American founder of The Luxury Spot.com, by telling her she looked “too Jewish.” Um… seriously?

“She mentioned several times that my curly hair was ‘too Jewish,’” Bryce continues. “And asked me why I didn’t get my nose fixed for my Bat Mitzvah.”

In addition to basically calling her unattractive, Patti described Bryce – who if you remember from the show was very reticent on her date – as “uptight” during her most recent appearance on WWHL.

And as for Bryce’s match – guess what?! It wasn’t successful! “She didn’t listen to me when I said what I wanted,” Bryce relays of Patti’s matchmaking skills. “She got upset with me when I said I didn’t like any of the men she picked and, off-camera, she pulled me aside and said, ‘If you want to look like a sweetheart to America, you’ll pick the teacher.’ She coerced me.” Wow! Patti is losing credibility (if she ever had any to begin with) by the minute!

Patti’s former assistant of eight years, Chelsea Autumn, is also giving her opinion about working with Patti! Chelsea, who left what she previously called the “claws of Stanger” in 2010 to start her own matchmaking service, Queen of Hearts, explains of Patti’s attitude and behavior: “I think she has a lot of deeper issues that she’s never really dealt with.”

And This isn’t the first time drama concerning Patti’s treatment of others is making headlines! Shortly after leaving the show, Chelsea’s rep gave a very harsh statement about the “constant abuse” associated with working with Patti, which was corroborated when TMZ featured a recorded conversation of Patti berating a stylist!

“I don’t think she loves herself, and if you don’t love yourself, no one else is going to be able to love you,” Chelsea describes, painting a sad picture of the woman who claims she can help anyone find love.

Are you shocked that Patti’s treatment of her clients is even worse behind the scenes?! Do you think Chelsea’s description of Patti is accurate or does she have an ulterior motive? Do you expect there to be another season of The Millionaire Matchmaker?

Last night’s Survivor: South Pacific began with Christine joining Semhar on Redemption Island. She’s down, but not out, and both women are confident about their potential second chance after the duel.

At Upolu, Mikayla tells Coach she was blindsided by Brandon, and guess who just happens to interrupt their conversation? Why it’s mini-Russell Hantz himself! I assume that he is going to apologize to Mikayla for his lies, but instead he opts for a side hug from Coach. Brandon never planned to come on the show and play the game like his uncle. He wanted to be a hero not a villain. Oops!

The Upolu tribe receives two invitations to attend the duel. Coach requests to go, and Stacey wants to join him. Ozzy and Elyse are the witnesses from tribe Savaii. During her week on Redemption Island, Semhar has found time to braid her hair. I almost didn’t recognize her. Right away, Christine tells Jeff Probst she was voted off the main island because of Coach’s disdain for her (true) after she called him a temporary player.

Shayne Lamas

Former Bachelor winner Shayne Lamas is not only revealing the sex of her baby but also the shocking name she plans on naming the unborn tot!

Shayne, who is married to Nik Richie of TheDirty.com, confirms to E! News that she is having a girl! But here comes the shocker! Shayne reveals she and hubby Nik are planning to name their baby Press. Yes you read that right — ‘Press.’

“Her name came to us at the beginning of my pregnancy, because she was getting so much press,” Shayne told E! News. “It started as a joke, her nickname was ‘Press Baby,’ but when we found out it was a girl, suddenly that was her name—her name was going to be Press!”

Ai ya ya. Shayne, 25, adds, “I think Press is a beautiful name, we’re elated, little princess Press!”

Even better for poor little baby Press, though yet to be born, she’s already in talks to sign with the talent agency Z Group! “Press has been getting so many offers, more offers than me and my husband have ever gotten!” Shayne said. “Whether it’s a baby product or pictures or an interview, a lot of stuff has been coming, and people want to sign her, and she’s not even born yet!”

When asked how hubby Nik, who’s website is known for harshly critiquing women, feels about having a girl, Shayne states: “My husband is biting his nails! He thinks it’s karma and it’s God getting back to him for his website.” Shayne and Nik tied the knot last year in April after only knowing each other for a few hours.

For the time being, Shayne is currently filming a new reality show for the Oxygen network. She however promises the C-section delivery of baby Press on Nov. 11 will be kept away from cameras. “I decided personally to keep her out of the whole reality world and keep the birth personal for me and my family,” she said.

As the days go by, it’s becoming more apparent that the 4th season of the Real Housewives of New Jersey (which is currently filming) will likely be Jacqueline Laurita’s last.

Jacqueline made some not so cryptic tweets last night which made it clear she is over the Bravo hit series. In fact, Jacqueline stated she is ready to move on from the show.

First Jacqueline revealed she will be skipping the season 3 reunion, which is taping today. “I feel nauseous and feverish. No reunion for me.Sorry guys.XOXO!” wrote Jacqueline. Yikes! A reunion show without a current housewife has yet to happen in the history of Bravo. Not sure the network will be too happy with one of the main characters missing out on a reunion show.

What is clear is that Jacqueline was well enough last night to attend the annual Posche Fashion Show. So it appears her reasons for wanting to skip the reunion today has less to do with her health. In fact, her next series of tweets seem to prove that.

Jacqueline added, “Someone( not me) got set up tonight. There are some sneaky people trying to make someone look bad & then play innocent on camera. Sad.”

She continued, “2b honest.I’m tired of the BS &shitty low life people.I didn’t know this was what I signed up 4.I have 2rise above&move on.” No word yet on whom she’s referring to.

But what is clear is that some major drama went down at the Posche fashion show last night and it involved Teresa Giuidice! Of course. According to the tweets of those in attendance, there was a fight that went down in the bathroom during the fashion show. The rumor is that the fight was between Teresa and her new nemesis Monica Chacon. If you recall, Monica was Kim G’s guest to Melissa Gorga’s Christmas party this season, which of course led to nothing but drama.

Based on some of the tweets, it seems producers of the show might have purposely invited Monica in other to set off some drama. This would make sense in regards to Jacqueline’s tweets about a “set up.”

Soap actress, Martha Byrne, who was at the show, was live tweeting through the event. She tweeted last night: “Fight in the bathroom,” adding minutes later – “Teresa in bathroom with ….” Martha, who also stated some of the fashion show drama was scripted, tweeted some photos from the event. Those are below!

It also appears Joe Gorga was somehow involved in the whole fiasco as he has been making tweets about Teresa all day. First Joe tweeted — “I thought the saying was blood is thicker than water. #BULLSHIT” Joe then went on to retweet the following messages from fans: -

“I think Teresa must have set Melissa and/or Joe up to look bad (ie @JacLaurita tweets and now @joegorga tweets).”

“Me too theresa changed all bout her & $$$ nothing else shame.”

Danielle Staub, who claimed producers of the show had been contacting her to film, has also been mum on twitter since yesterday. Leaving some to wonder if she is involved in this fiasco is any shape or form.

In the meantime, below is a screenshot of Jacqueline’s tweets -

For the most part, the NJ housewives have been mum on twitter today as the reunion is filming. Though Jacqueline did manage to tweet this message just hours ago – “I can’t be part of the Charade anymore.It’s unsettling. It’s disturbing & against what I stand for. I’m a REAL housewife.”
