Reality Tea

While Kate Gosselin attempted to put on a happy face following news that her TLC show Kate Plus 8 had been cancelled, a new report is now stating that is far from the case.

According to the Hollybaby blog, Kate is “very depressed” by TLC’s decision and was blindsided by it.

“Kate didn’t even learn about the cancellation from TLC until a few minutes before the story broke,” reveals a source. Ouch. “Kate is devastated. She had no idea that her show was going to be cancelled, she thought this was something they’d film on and off until the kids went to college.”

Another source close to the TLC show echoes the same sentiment. “Kate thought the show would go on forever, she expected it to.” Unfortunately for Kate, ratings for the show fell sharply this season bringing in less than a million viewers per episode. This apparently wasn’t worth it to the TLC network, which reportedly pays the mom of eight a lot of money.

In the meantime, the sources reveal they do not know what Kate is planning to do next. “Kate doesn’t know what she’s going to do, she’s getting lots of offers but hasn’t settled on anything.”

Perhaps the next step in Katie’s life is becoming a stage mom a la pimpmomager Kris Jenner and Dina Lohan! Moments after her show was cancelled, Kate hinted on twitter that she has no plans to stop making money off her kids one of her eldest kids, 10-year-old Mady Gosselin, is interested in acting, specifically on the Disney channel!

“Aww that Mady… So well spoken! Wants to do MORE tv!!! Disney anyone? Lol” And when a fan tweeted her that “Mady is a star in the making,” Kate replied “AGREED! MADY SAYS ‘THANKYOU!’”

Kate also had an interesting response when a fan wondered if she planned on going back into nursing. Kate replied, “I plan on staying on tv :) but if I have to to provide for my 8 lovelies, of course!” She plans on staying on TV? How entitled is this woman??? Good luck with that Katie!

As for Kate’s ex-husband Jon Gosselin, he made it clear he no longer wants his plus eight to be on television. Jon revealed last week that he was “very relieved” the show was cancelled. “I hope they can have more private family moments,” said Jon. “I hope that this will bring more privacy to my children and that they can get the proper attention they need for any personal issues they might have in the future.”

TELL US – THOUGHTS ON THE LATEST?

Paging Captain Obvious! The Skinnygirl herself, Bethenny Frankel recently told Life & Style: “I’m too thin.”

“Because I’m so busy, I’m not always hungry. I have to make myself eat more because of my busy schedule,” Bethenny explains. Perhaps, Bethenny who has always been thinner than the average gal and lately even more so, is becoming worried that her brand may suffer as a result of her recently very svelte appearance, as she expands into the skincare and shapewear businesses.

In the past fans have expressed concern over her dwindling frame. Or perhaps, she and husband, Jason Hoppy are hoping to add another little one to their family and she is concerned about her tiny frame making it difficult to conceive again? Mere speculation on my part.

Whatever it is that is responsible for her recent weight loss, Bethenny admits: “I have to eat more because I burn off a lot of calories,” adding that now she is eating more than ever in the form of sensible meals and even, desserts!? Well, not a whole dessert, but part of one! “I love dessert so I eat dessert,” she said. “If I had eaten a brownie five years ago, I probably would have had to have 12 brownies. Now, if I want a brownie, I’ll have a little bit of a brownie.”

Crediting her lifestyle, including being a mommy and running several business devoted to health and well-being, for making her realize how important it is to enjoy foods and alcohol in moderation, she reiterates -it’s all about a balance! “Girls put a lot of pressure on themselves to be skinny. They don’t understand that it’s not about a quick fix — but a healthy lifestyle.”

A healthy lifestyle that includes exercise, among other things (like low-fat alcohol). Yoga buff Bethenny released a yoga DVD last year and is often seen walking around Manhattan with her family.

Best of luck to Bethenny in getting her weight back on track to a place she is comfortable with.

Do you think Bethenny is too thin? Do you think Bethenny’s recently itty-bitty appearance has been negatively affecting her Skinnygirl Empire?

Basketball Wives star Evelyn Lozada is opening up about her upcoming wedding to fiance Chad Ochocinco as well as those rumors that she might be appearing on Dancing With The Stars!

First Evelyn, who got engaged to NFL player Chad last November, discusses the drama from the finale episode when she caught Chad having lunch with another woman. “We resolved it and we moved on,” Evelyn reveals to the Hollywood Life. “I don’t know if he sees my point, but there’s always that man-woman conflict.”

And what about those trips to the fertility clinic so that she and Chad would have twins right away? Well it appears the baby plans are on hold for now. “That’s the good thing with fertility, you can pick and choose when you want to have babies,” explains Evelyn. “We want to have the babies after the wedding.”

As for the wedding, Evelyn confirms they are indeed planning to wed in the summer of 2012! “I would like something small,” Evelyn gushes. “But Chad being who he is wants something bigger and more over the top. We’ll see if we can meet somewhere in the middle.”

Meanwhile, weeks after TMZ first reported that Evelyn was in talks to appear on Dancing With The Stars, she is now confirming the report. Evelyn states that while she has yet to sign on for the show, she would love to kick off her dancing heels!

“I would love to do Dancing with the Stars,” Evelyn states. “There was that whole rumor that they were thinking about having me on and I wouldn’t be opposed.” Evelyn continues, “The rumor is true. I haven’t been picked, but the rumor was true. There was a story. They were talking about potential contestants and I was one of them.”

Evelyn also adds that fiance Chad, who competed on the show in the past, is fully supportive. “He’s very supportive,” Evelyn continues. “He’s like, ‘You’ll have a good time.’”

The Bravo housewives curse strikes again as former Real Housewives of Atlanta star Lisa Wu Hartwell is now confirming she has indeed split from her husband Ed Hartwell.

Whispers of a split first began weeks ago after Lisa was spotted out and about at multiple events without her wedding ring or her husband.

Over the weekend, Lisa took to her twitter page to confirm the split after Ed changed his relationship status on his facebook page from married to separated. Lisa however denies the separation stemmed from money issues as was being reported by some media outlets.

“Sadly.We r separated but wld NEVER b over money. That is so far frm the truth. Wish ppl cld respect ppl’s privacy during times like these,” tweeted Lisa on Saturday.

Lisa, who is now going by her maiden name Lisa Wu, follows in the footsteps of DeShawn Snow, who also filed for divorce from her husband Eric Snow (he left her for his pregnant mistress) shortly after being fired from the RHOA by Bravo. Oddly enough, reports claimed Lisa was fired by the network because she refused to amp up her marital problems with Ed.

Lisa and Ed got married back in 2005 and have a 3-year-old son together, Ed. Jr. Lisa however has two older sons with ex-husband, R&B singer Keith Sweat.

While the Bachelor Pad star Vienna Girardi has managed to turn most of her fellow contestants against her ex-fiance Jake Pavelka, the show host Chris Harrison is now speaking out against her, accusing her of playing the victim.

In an all new interview with TV Guide, Chris talks Vienna and her unsuccessful attempt to stage a walkout on the show, while also discussing Kasey’s control of the game, plus Gia and Ames’ exits. Excerpts from Chris’ interview below -

Were you taken aback by Vienna claiming that the show was “cheating?”
Harrison:
You can play the victim all you want … but if you’re going to start accusing the show I’m not going to stand for it. Who’s keeping you here? .That’s why when she said that, I said, “If you don’t like it, then leave.” Literally, she was trying to have this coup d’etat and stage a walkout. … it’s not the last temper tantrum that a houseguest will have this season.

Are you surprised she still refuses to speak to Jake?
Harrison:
I’m surprised overall that she just won’t let it go and she just won’t bury the hatchet. In her defense, I think she’s acting out of emotion, and I don’t think she’s taking under consideration the public perception of her. She has to realize she’s on a show and even if you don’t want this closure with Jake, when he comes up to you five times and you diss him like that, it’s going to be perceived pretty badly.

What about Kasey’s game moves this week?
Harrison: It’s impressive how he’s the Godfather of the house right now. It’s funny how Vienna thinks she’s really a part of it too, but she’s really not. She doesn’t realize how much Kasey is really the one in control of this game, at least up until this point. He’s played it beautifully, I have to say.

Did you expect Gia to leave the show?
Harrison: That got out of hand so quickly and I have no idea how she went from zero to I’m leaving. She got caught … trying to strategize and break up Kasey and Vienna, and then when Graham and Kasey played the game better than her, she got pissed, upset, her feelings got hurt and she left. I think it was more, “I’m about to be voted out so instead of losing, I quit.”

How incredible was Ames’ exit?
Harrison: That was one of the greatest moves I’ve seen in Bachelor history. Ames showed that, “I don’t need this, it’s not going to change my life that much, but leaving here with my dignity and with my love is more important.” It was a storybook moment only Ames [could do], it was a beautiful moment and funny to see the cast applauding.

And tonight on ABC, a new episode of the Bachelor Pad airs. On the new episode, the guys and gals face a synchronized-swimming challenge, Jake finds (and Kasey and Vienna lose) allies. Meanwhile, Melissa gets mad at Blake, and the formerly affianced Michael and Holly share what might be a defining moment in their relationship. It airs at 8/7c.

Kim Kardashian Wedding Photo

Less than 24 hours after she officially tied the knot, the E! network has now released the first images from Kim Kardashian’s wedding to Kris Humphries!

While the official photos won’t be out until Tuesday or Wednesday (PEOPLE magazine got the exclusive rights to those images), E! was able to post some screen shots from their footage as they got the rights to the video.

In more images below, you can see Kimmie prepping for her big day as well as photos of her sisters/co-maid of honors Khloe and Kourtney Kardashian.

Meanwhile, new reports out today are now estimating Kimmie made over $17 million from her made for TV wedding! According to the NY Post, below is how Kimmie raked in the dough -

Payments received -

* $15 million plus profit for four-hour, two-part wedding special on E!

* $300,000 for exclusive engagement announcement with People

* $100,000 for exclusive rights to bridal shower with Britain’s OK! mag

Kim also reportedly received a lot of freebies for her big day including her free Vera Wang wedding gowns (yes plural as she wore three ivory Vera Wang gowns throughout the night) plus a “deeply discounted” rate for her $3 million Lorraine Schwartz wedding bling.

Ah, the joys of appearing on reality television. A week after his appearance on the Real Housewives of New Jersey, the recent arrest of Ashley Holmes’ dad, John Madison Holmes aka Matt Holmes , is now making headlines.

While Matt appeared to be the voice of reason on the most recent episode of the show, it turns out he was actually arrested weeks ago and charged with arson, insurance fraud and money laundering.

Matt, 39, wasn’t arrested until early June of this year, though the alleged arson actually took place on March 12, 2011. Matt’s wife, Jodi Sue Holmes, 36, who also appeared on the RHONJ, was later arrested on a charge of money laundering as well.

According to court records, after a fire destroyed the couple’s Texas two-story house that was undergoing remodel work, Matt told the Police that he had been at the house dropping off supplies for contractors 30 to 45 minutes before firefighters were called to put out the fire.

However, a few months later, “a credible witness” came forward and stated Matt started the fire in three rooms of the house using kerosene and gasoline, according to investigator Ken Dabbs, who already believed the fire to be intentionally set after finding no electrical shorts or other reasonable cause.

Dabbs reveals Matt and his wife received $429,000 in insurance money. The police complaint alleges that Jodi knew about the arson and used the proceeds to make purchases, which included plastic surgery and a $40,000 diamond ring.

Cops reveal that to their knowledge, the couple has ever been involved in anything like the suspected arson and neither has ever been arrested. The charges however appear to be pretty serious as the FBI is also involved with the investigation. John was released on $225,000 bond while his wife Jodie was released on $75,000 bond.

As for Ashley, she made the following tweet late yesterday, “FYI- my parents have NOT been indicted..this whole thing was started by a disgruntled employee..they are INNOCENT &that’s all i have to say.”

In lighter news, housewife Melissa Gorga recently took some sexy bikini shots for Life & Style magazine! The 32-year-old mama of three opened up about her diet and staying fit.

“There is no dieting going on in the Gorga household! I can’t diet! I stay active so I can eat what I want,” Melissa tells Life & Style. However, she adds, “I’m not a huge meat-and-potatoes girl. I tend to go for lighter meals, because that’s what I enjoy.” Melissa reveals that after her third C-section, in December 2010, she began meeting with her trainer three times a week for hourlong weight workouts to maintain a sculpted and toned figure. A bikini photo of Melissa is below!

And finally, a new episode of the Real Housewives of New Jersey airs tonight on Bravo. On the 14th episode this season titled “Belly Up and Up,” verbal warfare and an agonizing decision lowlight Jacqueline’s relationship with her daughter. Meanwhile, Teresa’s financial woes escalate. And the wives trek to Kathy’s food-tasting bash, featuring surprise guests and unsavory behavior from Teresa and Melissa.

Kimmie’s stepfather Bruce Jenner walked her down the aisle, while she donned an ivory custom-designed Vera Wang gown with full tulle skirt, basque waist and hand-pieced Chantilly lace appliqué on the bodice and train. She wore Guiseppe Zanotti shoes.

Kim, 30, was joined by sisters Kourtney Kardashian, 32, and Khloe Kardashian, 27, who served as her co-maids of honor. Her younger sisters Kendall Jenner, 15, and Kylie Jenner, 14, alongside Kris’ sister, Kaela Humphries, were bridesmaids. The ring bearer was none other than Kourtney’s 21-month-old son, Mason Disick.

The made for TV wedding will be featured on the cover of PEOPLE magazine this coming week. Kimmie reportedly received an estimated $500,000 or $1 million (depending on who you ask) for her wedding pics. The E! network was also on hand to tape the nuptials for their upcoming two-part special: Kim’s Fairytale Wedding: A Kardashian Event, which will air Oct. 9 and 10.
