Kate, who’s last book ‘I Just Want You to Know’ bombed after its April release, is set to pen an instructional manual for fellow single moms and dads, you know because with the eight kids, bodyguards, nannies, housekeepers, multiple TV appearances, she is just like any other normal single parent.
Moving right along, UsWeekly is reporting Kate is once again the target in a new child labor law probe for the second time in a year span. This time around, Pennyslyvania Rep. Thomas Murt is arguing that state law permits children under the age of 7 to work in movies, but not on television. This would make Kate’s co-stars sextuplets ineligible to appear on her show. However, the possibility of the kids not being allowed to film for TLC is very unlikely.
Kate’s former Dancing With The Stars professional partner Tony Dovolani is also speaking out about the TLC reality star. When asked if he still keeps in touch with Kate at Wednesday’s ESPY awards show red carpet, Tony said: “I’ll be honest. I actually haven’t stayed in touch with her, she hasn’t stayed in touch with me.”
“I needed a break,” continued Tony. “I got a break with my family, and she’s not someone I worry about. I am more concerned with my own family.” Ouch!
Tony was also asked his opinion on the Jake and Vienna split, being that Jake also appeared on DWTS this season. According to Tony, the split was no surprise to him. “In public, I think they were great,” he said of the twosome. “In public, they only showed that they were in love with each other. But you could tell it was fake.”
As for how he new it was just a showmance, Tony added – “You can tell because you can look at a person and tell if they’re in love or they’re not in love. Me being married for ten years, I knew it wasn’t going to last.”
Just days after announcing her lawsuit against her co-stars for assault and defamation, Danielle Staub now finds herself on the receiving end of karma a new lawsuit being filed by her former sex tape partner.
RadarOnline is reporting today that Steve Zalewski, is suing the reality star for defamation of character and harassment. Steve is the same ex that tried to sell a sex tape of he and Danielle a year ago, but was unsuccessful as Danielle won an injunction to stop the release of the tape so she could shop around a better quality one less than a year later. Steve appeared on the 1st season of the Bravo show as Danielle’s “boyfriend.”
The basis of the lawsuit stems from Danielle’s comments about Steve on this season of the RHONJ. In the episode titled “Play at Your Own Risk”, Danielle claims that Steve had filmed the sex tape without her knowledge or consent, much to the non-belief of her fellow co-stars.
Steve’s attorney, Nase Naumoski, denies Danielle’s claims, telling Radar that Danielle absolutely knew about the sex tape and even filmed parts of it herself! Naumoski also adds that they have emails & texts messages that show Danielle knew about the tape & was actually all for it.
Naumoski continues that such claims that Danielle didn’t consent or know of such a tape made his client look like an out right criminal.
RadarOnline also spoke to Steve who says because of the episode, “I have people come up to me in restaurants telling me I’m going to hell, I’m not a good person. I try to explain to people I didn’t do anything wrong. She would send me video texts of her playing with her self, I have nothing to do with that.”
Steve adds, “Basically I want her to stop lying and ruining people’s lives, she’s really out of her mind, there’s something wrong with her. She plays the victim and says everyone is out to get her, but it’s really the other way around.”

Just a week after her PEOPLE magazine cover story came out detailing her volatile childhood, Bethenny Frankel’s mother, Bernadette Birk, is now telling her side of the story to Star magazine.
“I love my daughter but what she’s saying is killing me,” Bernadette reveals in a new interview in this week’s issue of Star. Bernadette denies Bethenny’s assertion that she was a bulimic who was always drinking.

Judging from last night’s episode, it seems Annie will be the first house guest to leave. The other HGs have revealed they simply deem her a bigger threat than Rachel. Also not shown on TV, Annie has been wrecking major havoc in the house since being on the block, and it seems the other HGs are simply tired of her.
Also tonight, the ‘Saboteur‘ will finally be unveiled! It’s anyone’s guess who it is. The HGs seem to suspect Andrew.
Another twist revealed this week was that two of the HGs are lifelong friends. Britney suspected Brendon and Kristen because she didn’t buy their reactions, while Kristen suspected Matt and Annie because they hadn’t interacted but had more in common than any of the other house guests.
The only thing that’s clear is that this season of Big Brother is one to watch! The new episode airs tonight at 8:00 pm Eastern on CBS.
My Thoughts So Far: Big Brother is indeed my favorite reality show and I must say this season has been great thus far. I wasn’t that impressed with the Saboteur twist, but this lifelong friends twist however has me very intrigued. Now that’s the kinda twist I like!
Saboteur – I really have no clue on who the Saboteur is though I highly doubt it’s Andrew, that would simply be too obvious right? He is too reminiscent of former America’s player Eric. I truly believe (and hope) it is a woman this time around. I suspect Kathy, Annie or Monet. Plus if you notice, the physical stature of the Saboteur seems to be of a smaller stature, similar to that of a woman. But then again, perhaps Big Brother is just screwing with us and has altered the size of the Saboteur. Must say I can’t wait to find out who it actually is tonight.
Lifelong Friends – This is such a great twist, similar to the Twins twist they had in the past. There are a lot of theories as to who these could be. The biggest one is that it is Kathy and Britney, and that they are mother and daughter. Remember during the message to the HGs, the Saboteur said: “And if you think about it, it’s actually quite easy to figure out.” Well Kathy and Britney are both from Arkansas, plus the Saboteur did put Xs on both of their names earlier on, perhaps as a clue to the HGs. Another theory is that if they are not mother and daughter, they are at least related. Another theory is that Matt & Ragan might be brothers.
Brigade Alliance – The Brigade, yikes! This could possibly be the dumbest alliance in BB history. Enzo nicknaming himself Meow Meow? Priceless. There are so many flaws with this alliance. For starters, they will be discovered by the other HGs any minute now. Two, one thing I’ve learned from watching BB is that joining an alliance too quickly is always a bad idea, plus the number of people in the alliance, four, is one too many for the time being. And finally, there are simply one too many idiots in the alliance aka Enzo, Hayden. I am really hoping someone not it the alliance wins HOH tonight and hopefully puts up two people from the alliance.
Showmance – How hot is Brendon by the way? But in all seriousness, it seems Brendon and Rachel are getting way too caught up in their showmance and it is without a doubt affecting their game play. Rachel saying she would have saved Brendon had she won POV was very adorable, but really, has she forgotten her reason for moving into the BB house? These two being so open with their showmance, so soon, is also a bad idea. People are not going to want to go into an alliance with them because they know Brendon and Rachel will always be loyal to each other and put the other first. With that said, I really do like Brendon and am rooting for him.

Just days after Danielle Staubannounced her plans to sue all “perpetrators” involved in the fashion show fiasco, co-star Jacqueline Laurita is now slamming her lawsuit.
The Real Housewives of New Jersey star, who is looking much slimmer nowadays, thinks the lawsuit is pathetic. “You can’t defame someone who defames herself,” Jacqueline told Zap2It. “I have not told any lies about her. I never physically touched her or threatened her, so I am not worried.”
Danielle’s attorney, Paul Giblin told the HollywoodLife on Tuesday, “We are going to use this footage and prepare a case against these women,” despite the fact that Jacqueline’s daughter, Ashely Holmes, was the only one shown physically attacking Danielle. Giblin continued, “We are seeking assault and battery charges, defamation of character and punitive damages as well.
No one was arrested as a result of the attack, but Ashley did get fined $189 by the courts for pulling Danielle’s “hair.”
As for Jacqueline, she feels this is just another way for Danielle to get publicity. “She will do anything, and I mean anything, to stay in the press,” she says. “I think she’s pathetic and desperate. Maybe she has a fear that she won’t be asked to return next year so she’s grasping at straws to keep a connection between us. I don’t know.”
In other Danielle Staub news, a new story by Star magazine asks, ‘What Happened to Danielle Staub’s Face?’
The above before and after photo is posted and some surgical experts try to determine what work the 47-year-old hasn’t has had done. The after photo was taken on July 6th.
“Is she wearing a mask?” asks Palm Beach-based dermatologist Dr. Kenneth Beer. “Her proportions are not correct anymore, because it appears she’s had too much filler injected into her lips and cheeks.”
Danielle is also featured in this week’s ‘What I Ate Today’ column in OK! magazine. Her diet seems slightly less restrictive than Kelly Bensimon’s700 calorie a daystarvation diet.
Below is a sample of what Danielle eats during a normal day:
Breakfast: a bagel Snack: almonds and a Venti white chocolate peppermint mocha Lunch: grilled chicken wrap Dinner: grilled chicken salad with snow peas and mandarin oranges
The Enquirer reports Countess LuAnn was at a club outside LA when she asked to borrow a cigarette from a young, tattooed, heavily pierced woman at the club. “LuAnn had a table and proceeded to feed the girl drinks, flirt and kiss for the rest of the night. She kept telling her how beautiful she was and how she reminded her of when she was younger. Her friends jokingly told LuAnn she was a lesbian cougar!”
Oddly enough, LuAnn is still dating boyfriend Jacques Azoulayand the two were just photographed at an event together on June 30th. If this story is true, LuAnn would be joining the likes of Kim Zolciak and Danielle Staub, as part of the Bravo housewives who have taken or pretended to have taken a dip or two in the lady pond.
So is Luann really bisexual? Or is this just a ploy to garner some publicity? Is the story even true, you know considering the source? So many questions, so little time.
The douchebag nutjob famewhore known as Spencer Pratt decided to don a ridiculous old man disguise and try to crash the Hills‘ finale afterparty that he and his wife Heidi Montag were not invited to on Tuesday night.
UsWeekly reports Spencer stood outside the Roosevelt hotel (where the afterparty was taped) surrounded by the show’s puzzled fans. Spencer, alongside Emilio Masella, ex-boyfriend of Jersey Shore‘s Snooki –whom he’s developing a dating reality show for– were eventually escorted from the hotel property by Security police.
“I wasn’t invited to that party, so I’m having my own party with the people on the Hollywood Walk of Stars!” Spencer 26, later told Perez Hilton. He added: “I spend a lot of time being hated and I feel like I want a little closure.”
The Roosevelt hotel insiders also tell UsMagazine that Spencer tried to buy drinks for the entire bar at the hotel that afternoon — but his card was declined. And 50 seconds remain…
