The fourth season of Bravo’s The Rachel Zoe Project will premiere August 2!

The network made the announcement this week as well as the unveiling of two new fashion series. So what can we expect on the upcoming new season? Well we can expect more fashion talk as style guru Rachel Zoe takes her celebrity styling to a whole new level.

This season captures the incredible star power behind Rachel’s business, which is expanding to include her own exclusive clothing line. As her business continues to grow, so does Rachel’s family as she prepares for the birth of her first child with husband Rodger Berman. Rachel also goes bananas when she tries to juggle and manage her new team, clothing line and celeb clients all while preparing for motherhood.

Missing in action this season will be Rachel’s long term assistant Brad Goreski who quit working for her last September to branch off on his own. Back then the two stated they ended their work relationship amicably, however a report came out in February stating Rachel was furious and feuding with Brad for stealing styling her a-list client Demi Moore.

The new season premieres Aug 2 at 10/9c. And right after the Rachel Zoe Project every Tuesday night will be the airing of two new series Fashion Hunters at 10pm and Mad Fashion at 10:30pm.

“Fashion Hunters” follows the fashionistas at Second Time Around as they go out searching the attics, closets and garages of New York’s elite. Far from the land of thrift, this hip shop makes dreams come true for shoppers looking for designer fashions on a budget. The team has to deal with demanding customers from savvy socialites to downtown hipsters looking to sell back or buy their next great “get.”

“Mad Fashion” follows former Project Runway alum Chris March. From start to finish, viewers will see Chris and his eccentric crew as they create one-of-a-kind designs for his high-profile clientele. No creation or idea is too crazy for this team as they design Jennifer Coolidge’s Mardi-Gras float ensemble and model Chrissy Teigen’s gown for the MET Costume Gala. Tensions will rise as Chris pushes the boundaries of fashion and challenges his clients’ comfort zones. A sneek peak of Mad Fashion is below -

Brooks Ayers

Holy moly! Days after Real Housewives of Orange County star Vicki Gunvalson finally acknowledged her new boyfriend Brooks Ayers on the reunion show, more details are now coming out about Vicki’s “southern gentleman.”

RadarOnline paints a very unflattering picture of Brooks as court records show he is in good company with Slade a deadbeat dad who owes a ton in child support to two different women.

It gets even worse as Brooks was arrested TWICE last year in Alabama and Mississippi for failing to meet his child support obligations to estranged wife Kim Ayers. The court docs show he owed Kim and another woman over $40,000 in back child support at the time of his arrest.

It is also this next tidbit of information that makes us wonder if Vicki was cheating on Donn before filing for divorce. See following one of Brooks’ arrest in August of last year, Vicki sent a handwritten letter to a Mississippi judge in a desperate bid to get Brooks released from jail.

“I am a personal friend of (David) Brooks Ayers and am acting on his behalf at this time,” wrote Vicki on August 30. “Due to the fact I live in California, I am unable to deliver this request personally,” she added.

The problem is this letter was written TWO months before Vicki, 48, filed for divorce from husband of 16 years Donn Gunvalson in October. In fact, some of our readers have also pointed out that Brooks strikes a striking similarity to a guy that was shown flirting with Vicki in a pool on this season’s OC Housewives during her trip to Cabo with Tamra.

As for Brooks, he has three kids with his estranged wife Kim and a 16-month-old son with his ex-girlfriend Nicolette Catanzarite. “I don’t want him back,” Kim told RadarOnline. “What I want is the child support. He ought to do the right thing and take care of his kids.” Kim also issued a warning to Vicki, “Sometimes you don’t know people. You have a choice to make. Do your homework! It’s not hard.”

Nicolette also spoke to Radar stating that Brooks is not the Southern gentleman he pretends to be. “I once thought of Brooks just what Vicki said on the show; he was the sweetest southern guy in the whole wide world,” said Nicolette. “But over the last two and a half years, I have slowly realized things weren’t right. He’s the catch-me-if-you-can type of guy. He’s definitely a deadbeat dad.”

Nicolette says she is owed $900 a month plus $19,000 in arrears. “I want the bastard to pay child support!” added Nicole.

Brooks’ lawyer attempted to defend Brooks saying the amount Brooks owes is “subject to debate” while also adding that since Brooks’ release from jail in September, he has paid $20,000 to Kim.

This news is all the more interesting as Vicki has been a very outspoken critic of Gretchen Rossi’s boyfriend Slade Smiley who owes over $138,000 in child support.

And that is Brooks, and not Donn, pictured above with Vicki. The two were photographed together last month shopping with sources saying Brooks footed the bill for Vicki’s new clothes.

No word yet on whether or not Tamra Barney will be calling Brooks’ exes to try to get their stories out to the public.

TELL US – THOUGHTS ON VICKI’S NEW BOYFRIEND BEING A DEADBEAT? DO YOU THINK VICKI CHEATED ON DONN WITH BROOKS?

Now that she’s sort of famous on the tee-vee, Real Housewives of New York City dud star, Cindy Barshop has found herself the subject of guess what? A Lawsuit! Congratulations Cindy – you’re nobody in America till somebody sues you.

According to the New York Post, it seems Cindy, owner of Completely Bare Spas – which will dot your lady parts with glitz and glam for a hefty fee- has been slammed with a racial discrimination suit from a former employee.

Altovise Collie - who was let go in March – claims she was fired on the grounds of her race after being subjected to harassment and unequal pay at the hands of Completely Bare employees and Cindy herself. Collie, who is African-American and relocated from Atlanta for the job, states she was hired after a phone interview, but when she arrived at Completely Bare’s Fifth Avenue Flagship location things changed: “They were very impressed with me — until they saw me. I was treated like trash and thrown in the gutter, damn near sleeping in the streets. Everyone treated me badly, like I was in some sort of sorority hazing.”

Collie, who maintains she was the only black beautician at Completely Bare, further complains that her co-workers accused her of being hired only to “inject some color” into the spa, because the “spa” which specializes in Vajazzling was expanding nationally. Did you hear that guys – rhinestone vajayjays coming to a town near you! YAY!

In addition to facing harassment for her race, Collie asserts she was paid only half of the weekly $700 salary of other employees and paid only in cash, which prevented her from being able to rent an apartment. Collie also accuses her co-workers responsible for training her of withholding pertinent information about the waxing process resulting in employee complaints. Apparently when Collie had a sit down with Ms. Cindy Barshop – who we know from RHoNYC is obsessed with things being fair – about the treatment she was receiving and the inadequate training provided, she was fired a week later! Collie’s lawyer, Lenard Leeds, alleges: “From Day One, she wasn’t given the same training, she wasn’t given the same money.”

Well of course, Cindy is fighting back is now figthing back against the allegations: “The allegations are 100 percent not true and we can prove it.” In a statement released to RumorFix, Cindy explains: “She wasn’t fired because of her race, she was fired because of the quality of her work. Customers were complaining about her, so I retrained her myself, but when there was no improvement, I had to let her go. It had nothing to do with race. We have salons across the country with employees from several different races and backgrounds, so her claim that she was the only black employee is ridiculous.”

Cindy also goes onto reveal that Ms Altovise Collie has some C-list celebrity aspirations of her own: “She is trying to be a model now so I guess this is her way of trying to get her fifteen minutes of fame. She was never hazed. It’s all just lies and she wouldn’t be doing this if I wasn’t on a reality TV show.”

Who do you believe? Does Altovise Collie have a case or is she just trying to get some publicity? Has anyone visited a Completely Bare Spa? If so, what was your experience?

A day after news broke that Crystal Harris called off her wedding to Hugh Hefner, just 5 days before the ceremony, more details are now coming out on why Crystal chose to walk away.

According to a new report by TMZ, Crystal’s change of heart had a lot to do with money and her music career. Despite the incredible wealth of Hef, head and founder of Playboy, sources close to Crystal reveal she was only receiving a “couple hundred dollar” in weekly allowance.

Crystal was reportedly fed up with that amount and wanted to make her own money. Reason #2 was also her singing career. Crystal, who reportedly did not give a lot of input into the wedding planning, was solely focused on launching her music career even with her wedding just days away.

In fact, Crystal released her first single “Club Queen” just this week. Sources add that Crystal felt she “couldn’t be married to Hef and have a successful music career.”

And according to a report by RadarOnline, reason #3 has to do with Crystal’s ongoing affair relationship with Jordan McGraw, 24-year-old son of Dr. Phil. News first broke back in April that Crystal was cheating on Hef with Jordan. Crystal denied the news back then but Radar reports the two are still seeing each other, and that is also part of the reason Crystal could not marry Hef.

“She has a boyfriend. She is seeing Dr. Phil’s son, Jordan. She thinks she is going to be living with all of Dr. Phil’s millions,” reveals a source. Interesting because former girlfriend of Hef, Kendra Wilkinson was also secretly dating her now husband Hank Baskett while she was still living in the Playboy mansion.

Crystal’s rep however released another statement yesterday once again denying any cheating on Crystal’s end, not that we would expect a rep to admit such a thing anyways. Crystal also went on the Ryan Seacrest radio show this morning stating that calling off the wedding was a mutual decision. “I called it off because I didn’t think it was the right thing for me to do,” she said, adding the decision “was mutual between Hef and I.”

Crystal added that she’s been having doubts for a while. “For a while, I’ve been having second thoughts about everything,” admitted Crystal. “I haven’t really been at peace with myself lately. I didn’t think it was really fair to him … it was all happening too fast for me … I just thought about it and [asked myself,] ‘Was this what I wanted?’”

As for Hef, he seems to be doing well considering all things. Below are some of his tweets from yesterday -

  • “The breakup is a heart breaker, but better now than after the marriage.”
  • “Since we’re not getting married on Saturday, I’ve scheduled a movie: “Runaway Bride.” Seems appropriate.”
  • “The TMZ report that Crystal & I “had a nasty argument,” prompting her to call off the wedding, is untrue. There were no arguments.”

Hef also stated that Crystal took their dog Charlie with her while he then retweeted this message late last night, “LinzLuvs Omg @CrystalHarris left @hughhefner the day her single came out on iTunes. Coincidence? I think not.”

And finally, it came out just moments ago that Crystal is gracing the latest July cover of Playboy magazine. The cover (pictured below) is titled “America’s Princess: Introducing Mrs. Crystal Hefner.” Awkwaaard!

Taylor Lumas
On Tuesday’s episode of 16 and Pregnant, we meet Taylor Lumas from Cincinnati, Ohio. Taylor became pregnant at fourteen by her boyfriend of a year older, track star Nathan Bridewell. The couple met at a roller skating party. Taylor lives with her mother Debi and really doesn’t have much of a relationship with her father. Her older sister Jeana lives down the street with her family. Also down the block? Nathan…and it’s a good thing too, since neither teen is old enough to drive yet.

Taylor talks to her friend about how nervous she was to tell her mother about her pregnancy. She tells her friend she considered using food coloring on tampons so her mother would think she was still having her period. Nothing screams maturity and readiness for parenthood like using kitchen fixings to hide a pregnancy. At seventeen, Taylor’s mom gave up a baby for adoption before giving birth to Taylor, and she is hoping her daughter also chooses that path. The young couple is having a girl and are totally opposed to adoption.

Sexting cheating scandal aside, the wedding is still on for Kim Kardashian, 30,  and fiance Kris Humphries, 26!

In fact, on the heels of receiving $300,000 for her engagement photos from PEOPLE magazine, the NY Post is now reporting Kim is set to receive over $1 million for her exclusive wedding photos!

However, it appears PEOPLE magazine is having second thoughts about paying that amount because while the sales of the engagement issue were good, it did not do as well as they expected.

“People’s Kim engagement cover sold well, but did not as well as they hoped,” said a source. “Over a million copies were sold, which is good but not their best. And when you spend that much on a cover story, you expect it to sell.”

In fact OK! magazine put in a bid of close to $2 million for Kimmy’s wedding photos before backing out of the deal, perhaps after seeing the sales of the PEOPLE engagement issue. A rep for PEOPLE did not comment on the story while Kim’s reps deny a deal has been made for the wedding photos.

Shifting gears, Kim was photographed above on Monday with fiance Kris and pimpmomager Kris Jenner. The Keeping Up With The Kardashians trio were at the posh Beverly Hills store Gearys, an upscale luxury retailer of jewelry and homeware, to register for the Kardashian-Humphries wedding registry.

The couple registered for a variety of items ranging from a $12.50 cloth napkin to a $7,850 crystal vase. Other items on their registry include a $1,650 silver-plated coffeepot, a $710.00 sugar bowl, and 24 five-piece silverware sets, each costing $1,600.

The couple also made certain to include a fake wedding date of October, 31 aka Halloween. However Kim has revealed she plans to tie the knot before the end of this summer. Also camera crews were on hand to film the trio at Gearys so it’s safe to assume this will all be televised on a yet to be announced wedding special. Filming has already ended for the 6th season of KUWTK which is currently airing on E!.

Adolfo Arreola and Jason Gomez

Days after a Chicago cop filed a lawsuit against Bravo and some cast members of the Real Housewives of New Jersey, the network is now responding by stating the lawsuit has no merit.

The lawsuit filed by police officer Adolfo Arreola and his cousin Jason A. Gomez claims they were savagely beaten up by Joe Giudice, Albie Manzo, and Chris Manzo during a brawl that took place earlier this year in the Dominican Republic. Adolfo stated in the filing that the drama began after Teresa Giudice sprayed champagne on his mother-in-law at a club and refused to apologize. He claims he was then attacked by the guys after confronting Teresa.

However, we pointed out yesterday that there was a major hurdle for Adolfo to overcome in the lawsuit filing. What you ask? Well Adolfo himself admitted he and his cousin Jason received $25,000 each in hush money to sign a release in which they also promised never to sue or speak out about the case. In fact, the men used some of that money to pay off their Dominican Republic attorneys.

And despite their claims that they signed the release under duress and to be able to leave the country, the Bravo network (which presumably paid the sum) sees things very differently.

In a statement issued Tuesday night, Bravo stated that the $25,000 settlements which were negotiated by Adolfo and Jason “will be enforced and these claims are completely without merit.”

Bravo also added that the show was not taping at the time the incident occurred, which might explain why previous reports stated the brawl would not be televised. The statement in full is below -

“Bravo has not seen a copy of the complaint so we cannot comment on the specifics. We can, however correct the misstatements that were reported. The Real Housewives of New Jersey was NOT taping at the time the incident occurred. We believe that the settlement agreements both the plaintiffs and their lawyers previously negotiated and signed will be enforced and these claims are completely without merit.”

It’s part two of the reunion for the Real Housewives of Orange County, and here’s hoping Andy saved the best for last.

Peggy Tanous’s footage is shown first, and she gets emotional about her bouts of postpartum depression and her suicidal thoughts. The first tear can barely get down her cheek before Alexis Bellino interrupts, “I had postpartum too!” Yes, Alexis one-upped postpartum. I swear, it was as if she was a first grader with her hand in the air yelling “Pick me, pick me!” to be line leader for the class. Every head on that set flips around to look at Alexis (even Gretchen looks shocked), as Andy has just shown several scenes where Alexis blatantly one-ups her “friend” Peggy. Peggy backs up Alexis and says that the two did speak about their experiences, but when Andy asks why Alexis didn’t feel the need to bring it up before now (perhaps last season?), Alexis shrugs it off, saying the topic didn’t come up then.
