On last night’s Basketball Wives: L.A., Imani and Laura need action, Malaysia designs baby bling, and the sisters Govan can’t wait for Draya to get in the ring…literally.
After the wedding, everyone heads to the clerb to celebrate with the happy couple. Gloria remarks that she thinks Jackie and the girls are taking it hard that Draya was a no-show. Um, why? They all seem to pretty much dislike her, but whatevs. They can’t focus on that when Imani starts crying to Jackie about how lonely she feels and how she’s given up on love. Crying to the bride after her wedding. Sounds like someone is trying to steal some wedding thunder, and now Imani is the center of attention. No one seems to mind, though, and the ladies group-hug it out.

If you recall, the Bravo network announced the first ever Housewives tour back in August and Jill was scheduled to headline the October 15 date in Atlanta alongside Nene Leakes, Melissa Gorga and Marysol Patton.
When Bravo announced the tour back then, many assumed it meant Jill would be a sure thing for the Real Housewives of New York City season 5! But as we all learned, that was not the case. Days after Bravo finally confirmed the firings, Jill, 48, made it clear she would no longer be a part of the tour. Not a fan of Jill’s but I must say I actually see her point of view in this. Really, who wants to do PR for the company that just publicly fired them?
So it’s a surprise today that Alex, who was also fired by Bravo, is more than happy to take Jill’s spot! In a statement to UsWeekly, Alex, 37, cites her “close relationship” with Bravo as her reason for having no pride doing the tour!
“I have a close relationship with Bravo and when they asked me to step in I was happy to accept,” Alex states. “The audience coming to see The Real Housewives Live Tour want to know about the past and our experience of filming and being a ‘Real Housewife’ on Bravo TV. With four seasons under my belt, I have plenty to say about that subject! The live show format is similar to a tour I did with the New Jersey ladies a few years ago, and we had a lot of fun doing it.”
In other RHONY news, non-fired housewife who really should have been fired Countess LuAnn de Lesseps reportedly fell off a table while dancing.
According to the NY Post, Countess Lulu took a Snooki-style tumble during a birthday party over the weekend at the uptown restaurant Desmond’s. Apparently, Lulu heard her song come on – Katy Perry’sLast Friday Night – during which she decided to do some table dancing. Unfortunately for the Countess, she ended taking a fall and cutting her knee.
The Post doesn’t state whether or not the Countess was inebriated. This isn’t however the first time there has been a report of the Countess acting wild in public. Here’s to hoping the Bravo cameras will be around to capture it all next time!

TELL US – THOUGHTS ON ALEX AGREEING TO DO THE TOUR AFTER BEING FIRED? DESPERATE OR OKAY?
In an annual Pop Culture Poll conducted by Parade and Yahoo! OMG!, Kim received 29% of the vote to beat out even Charle Sheen as the most annoying celeb of the past year! Wow – um… that sucks, but why am I not surprised?
But don’t feel too badly for Kimmie as she is in good company! Joining her on the annoying list are a few more reality stars, most notably Jersey Shore star Snookiwho garnered 21% of the votes! Donald Trump also made the list with 5% of the votes.
And the news for Kimmie gets even worse as Vivid Entertainment’s Steve Hirsch tells TMZ the company REJECTED an offer to sell her sex tape! “We were offered $20 million for the Kim tape but have decided that we are going to hang on to it … for now.” Which means it’s still available for your viewing pleasure, if you are into that sort of thing.
Days after Kimmie tied the knot, TMZ broke the news that someone was actively trying to take the tape off the market. Many of course suspected it was Kimmie herself, something that now appears not to be the case.
Mr. Hirsch does tell TMZ that his reasons for rejecting the sale were honorable, all things considered. “Although the offer that we ultimately received was substantial,” he explains quelling suspicious that the offer price wasn’t as high as the 30M he was after. “When I realized that it wasn’t Kim it became less appealing. Kim is a superstar and if it were to be sold, it should be to her.”
If Kim keeps annoying the public it seems like her economic potential to earn enough dough to get that tape off the market is going to dry up soon! I’m frankly shocked that Kim wasn’t the prospective buyer – maybe she was hiring someone else to try and buy the tape for her?

Thoughts on the poll? Do you agree that Kim is the “Most Annoying Celebrity of 2011”? Are you surprised Kim was not the person trying to buy the Kim K sex tape?
While appearing on Sunday night’s season premiere of Watch What Happens Live an unedited Patti spouted off about how gays can’t be monogamous and Jewish men lie as a shocked Andy Cohen (who is both gay and Jewish) seemed visibly appalled! And after that little episode I foresee a “cancelled” notice in her future…
When a caller asked about open relationships Patti, who has long been an advocate for monogamy with the couples she’s matched, informed him that, “In the gay world, there’s always going to be open [relationships].” Then when the caller confirmed that he was gay, she actually advocated he pursue open relationships telling him, “Ok, well then you’re ok. There’s Grindr [the online site that connects gay/bisexual men in the same area] for you. Go on Grindr. You’ll have a great time.” Well, I’m sure Grindr ummmm… appreciated the free press!
When a shocked Andy asked: “So wait, the gays can have open relationships?” Patti retorted with: “There’s no curbing the gay!” She continued, explaining: “I’ve tried to curb you people and you just don’t [change]. I’ve decided to throw in the towel and just say, ‘Do what you want. But when you find the right person, you will know.’”
Andy argued back that as a gay man he wants a monogamous relationship, but Patti bit the hand that feeds her, by laughing in his face and demanding to know “When was the last time you had a [serious] boyfriend?” Maybe Patti is upset that Andy fired her bestie Jill Zarin, or something…
Patti continued her barrage of insults aimed at the gay community when she expressed surprise that a gay viewer who spoke to Andy and Patti via Skype was cute, offering this gem:. “First of all, you’re very handsome. I thought you were straight,” she said. “That’s a compliment!”
A confused Andy, wanted to know how that was a compliment and Patti – who really needs a muzzle big time – answered: “Because he’s not queeny. Like you want a queen.” Oh, poor Andy, he looked so distraught!
Patti also defamed the Jewish community when she declared that “Jewish men lie.” Perhaps she’s had some sort of negative experience in that department, but to slander an entire group – a little harsh.
After facing some serious heat for her comments, Patti took to the Twitterz to set the record straight! “Attention male gays: I support you and my comment on [Watch What Happens Live] was to an L.A. guy who can’t find commitment.”
Patti apologized for her offensive remarks, telling US Weekly, “I am so sorry. I did not mean to offend anyone with my comments last night on Watch What Happens Live.” As for Bravo, the network made it clear they do not share the views expressed by Patti with the following statement: “Her comments are not representative of the network’s beliefs and opinions. We apologize for the offense it caused.”
Patti’s comments were even more surprising given that she’s always been an advocate for the gay community – even appearing in a NoH8 campaign. But don’t worry, Patti’s not just giving the gays bad dating advice! Appearing on New York Live she accused single, Manhattan women of being too smart to find a man! And encouraged them to skip talking about their academic accomplishments or using big words if they want to wear a big white dress!
“They don’t like them before they are married,” Patti explained, referring to men not wanting to date intelligent women! “You’ve got to dumb it down a little because men are not that bright.” Oh, Patti… seriously? 1950 called… Now here’s the real question do think this woman has ever made a successful match?
And on last night’s WWHL, Andy rightfully named Patti the Jackhole of the week!
In addition to the latest fiasco, the ratings for Patti’s show have continued to decline. In fact, the episode that aired last Thursday only garnered 809,000 viewers. In comparison, Flipping Out averaged 1.3 million viewers for its most recent season. We have to wonder whether Patti’s days on Bravo are now numbered…
Do you think Patti was serious or joking with her comments? Were you offended by Patti’s remarks? Do you think this incident may result in Bravo canceling Millionaire Matchmaker?
It’s a definite possibility with his celeb partnerRicki Lake! Just two weeks into the new season, Ricki, who has lost over 12 inches from her waist since rehearsals started, led the leader-board with the high score of 23! Ricki received praises from the judges for her energetic jive. Carrie Ann Inaba called it the best dance of the night while Len Goodman called it “an improvement from last week.”
Tying for second place were J.R. Martinez and Kristin Cavallari, each with a score of 22! JR’s score for his high energy jive ties his score from last week. The Hills’ alum Kristin shined with her quickstep despite receiving some criticism from Len. “It was not as good as you look,” he told Kristin.
Also showing improvement this week was Rob Kardashian! Following his jive performance, Carrie Ann called him the best dancer!… in the Kardashian family. “It’s official: Rob Kardashian is a better dancer than Kim Kardashian,” said Carrie Ann. “No offense to Kim, [but] you have the dancing gene, honey.”
Despite suffering a nip slip/wardrobe malfunction, Nancy Grace showed vast improvement in her dancing! After landing in the bottom two last week, the 51-year-old news anchor came back strong, earning a score of 21 for her quickstep.
Chaz Bonodidn’t fare so well as he ended up in the bottom of the pack after receiving praises from the judges last week. With a score of 17 points for a quickstep routine that judges deemed too slow, Chaz finds himself in last place. “I’ve moved faster through the car wash,” said Len.
Below are the full scores from last night -

RadarOnline is stating the counseling sessions, taped months before the tragic suicide, will air in the next few weeks. “Bravo has done major editing of the show, to be sensitive to the fact that Russell killed himself. However the decision was made to air the footage of the therapy sessions,” a Bravo insider reveals.
The insider goes on to add that Taylor is in full support of Bravo’s decision. “Viewers will see the two of them with their marriage counselor, Dr. Charles Sophy, as well as individual sessions with Taylor. Russell’s one-on-one sessions will not air. Taylor is completely supportive of the decision, and thinks it will help battered women to make the decision to leave an abusive relationship, just like she did,” the insider adds.
