If watching Keeping Up With The Kardashians has harmed your brain cells, QuickTrim, the diet pill they endorse, may just flat out harm you! Seriously.

A new report has experts and physicians calling QuickTrim “dangerous and ineffective”! Both Kim and Khloe endorse the product and have been featured in its ads. In fact, during an episode of Khloe & Lamar, pimpmomager Kris Jenner was heard yelling at Khloe that she would lose the endorsement for being too fat! Kim has claimed to have lost around 15lbs using the supplements and credited the products for helping her lose weight before her made-for-TV wedding.

Maybe Khloe knew something the rest of us didn’t as the report claims QuickTrim is hazardous to your health! “I don’t think anyone should take these products,” Dr. Adriane Fugh-Berman warns in an interview for US News & World Report.

Dr. Fugh-Berman, a physician and associate professor at Georgetown University Medical Center, along with registered dietitian Keri Gans decided to review three QuickTrim products and found that these supplements “contain powerful stimulants, laxatives, and diuretics that could cause abdominal pains, cramping and even kidney failure.”

Additionally they discovered that the QuickTrim products contained “large amounts of caffeine” which the company is not disclosing! “It irritates me that they’re not saying how much caffeine is in these pills,” Dr. Fugh-Berman relayed. “Too much caffeine can make you jittery and increase your blood pressure and pulse.”

“If you pop a couple of these pills with your Starbucks coffee, that’s not good; you could get caffeine poisoning, which can cause heart arrhythmias,” she cautions.

Registered dietitian Heather Mangeiri, a spokesman for the American Dietetic Association also echos those warnings and calls the pills ineffective! “My suggestion is to leave them on the shelf,” she advises.”Dietary supplements like these aren’t regulated by the [Food and Drug Administration], and many of the ingredients haven’t been shown to be effective.”

No statements have been made from QuickTrim or the Kardashian family regarding these findings.

In other Kardashian overdose news – the family is opening a new boutique. Yes – another one. “We are so excited to announce that our lifestyle boutique, Kardashian Khaos, is opening on November 1 in The Mirage, Las Vegas!!” Kim announced on her website this week. I love the name – sooo original!

“The store will feature so many amazing products including all the products that we own, represent, market and endorse, and some exclusive Las Vegas souvenir items,” Kim enthuses. Do you think they’ll be selling QuickTrim there? Including a very special product – sit down for this – a Kardashian TATTOO!!!! Oh NO!

“Never in my life did I think I would be made into a temporary tattoo,” desperate for attention and money-hungry mom, Kris wrote on her blog this week. “But never say never, right?! LOL.”

The Kardashians aren’t stopping there either – the family filed multiple U.S. Patent and Trademark documents for “Kardashian Kollection Home,” which may include “towels, bath mats, bedding as well as kitchen utensils, picture frames, and beer mugs.” Yes – because they have such stellar decorating tastes we all want our homes to look that tacky great.

THOUGHTS ON THE DANGEROUS FINDINGS RELATED TO QUICKTRIM PRODUCTS? DO YOU BELIEVE THE KARDASHIANS KNEW THE PRODUCTS WERE DANGEROUS? ARE YOU AS SHOCKED AS I AM THAT A KARDASHIAN TEMPORARY TATTOO WILL BE ON THE MARKET SOON?

Last night’s Survivor was full of twists. Brandon Hantz didn’t exude the crazy, and Ozzy is part of the most dramatic rose ceremony ever…oh, sorry…wrong show. Seriously, Savaii uses a risky strategy at the leadership of Ozzy, and Upolu is finding a togetherness and trust that has been lacking among the tribe.

After tribal council, all of Upolu is discussing what a loose cannon Brandon Hantz Crazy Pants has been since their raft hit the shore episode one is becoming. Edna is thinking that she shouldn’t worry about sitting out of all the challenges if BHCP keeps acting like he’s one sandwich short of a picnic.

Patti Sanger has emerged from hiding and is back to insulting people giving advice. In a new interview, the Millionaire Matchmaker talks her professional life, matchmaking, and how her reality show isn’t all that real.

“I was always a matchmaker in my personal life and realized there was a lot of money to be made doing it,” Patti tells TheFashionSpot blog of her roots growing up in NYC before moving to Miami and then LA where she became the Director of Marketing at the now defunct on-line dating site, Great Expectations.

Patti decided to branch out and started her own matchmaking service, which as we know is called Millionaire’s Club International, which grew into an international company with over 30 employees – which I guess implies she had some successful matches somewhere. From there Patti sparked the attention of Bravo and a reality television show was born!

“These days, I’m taking on less clients, but making more money,” she reveals on the state of her company. And she also confirms what I’ve always believed to be true! The clients we see her matching up on reality TV are definitely not her clients in real life! “My clients would NEVER go on the show,” Patti emphasizes. “They’re more discreet, living in places like Aspen and Monaco and want to remain private.” Imagine, reality TV setting up scenarios and changing reality! Poor Bravo, nobody is singing them praises these days!

Talking the difference between matching women up coast-to-coast, Patti declares: “New York women are picky, bitter, and don’t even try. Get a blow out, put on some makeup, and wear a dress!” she demands. “New York girls are smart in business, dumb in love; LA girls are smart in love, dumb in business.” Aaahhh… Patti and her generalizations! And she even has one for the Europeans! “Europeans are more comfortable with relationships,” she insists.

Patti also discusses her ever so archaic “rules” for finding love, which include: 1) A two-drink maximum on dates, as she equates getting too drunk as “sabotage” 2) Not giving too much information away on the first date – keep some things “secret” and 3) Don’t talk about your ex – “It doesn’t make a person feel special”. Allegedly Patti follows these rules herself, except for an once where she broke them on “accident.” As for what kind of guy she’s looking for: tall, rich, and romantic – and “no metrosexuals!”

Best of luck to Patti on her quest to find love and on her quest to set other people up successfully. I’ll believe it when I see it!

THOUGHTS ON THE INTERVIEW? DO YOU BELIEVE PATTI IS A SUCCESSFUL MATCHMAKER BEHIND THE SCENES? WOULD YOU FOLLOW HER RULES FOR FINDING LOVE?


Following this week’s outburst on Dancing With The Stars over perceived judges favoritism, Maksim Chmerkovskiy is continuing to defend his actions and refusing to apologize! He is also slamming certain competitors – and he is not holding back!

Speaking out on Good Morning America, Maks is still seething over the unfair critique he believes he and partner his partner Hope Solo received at the hands of judges Len Goodman and Carrie Ann Inaba. “I definitely have nothing to apologize for I have nothing to apologize for to Len, and certainly not to Carrie Ann. She can make all the faces she wants.”

“I don’t regret anything. That’s why I think I’m a bit misunderstood in this situation,” he explained, making it clear he has no intention of trying to make his way back into the judges’ good graces. “Everyone is waiting for me to bow my head, take a knee and say I’m sorry and plea for forgiveness. I have nothing to apologize for.”

He is also furious about how the judges speak to the contestants during those critiques! “Why is it that the judges are allowed to compare us to animals and say stuff they think is funny when it’s nothing constructive at all and we can’t say that they’re wrong, basically?” Maksim questioned, referring to comments from judge, Bruno Tonioli comparing Chaz Bono to a “little penguin”.

As for his comment to the judges calling DWTS “my show”, Maksim agrees he misspoke, describing: “When I got on this show six years ago I treated it as a dance competition and everyone here tried really hard to change my mind and say ‘Look Maks, it’s a show, there are other elements to it,’ so I embraced it. But one thing I’m not going to embrace is pointed fingers and disrespectful remarks.”

“I love the show. I love the fans. I love every aspect of it and that was the whole idea behind what came out wrong with “my show,” he explained. And he also loves his partner! “One thing I don’t want to do is to have Hope have any negative vibe out of this,” he emphasized, further leading to speculation that the two may be more than dance partners! “She’s truly our star and she’s been doing an amazing job.”

Well, Maks may love Hope and the fans, but there’s someone else he certainly doesn’t love besides the judges – competitor Derek Hough! Maks describes Derek as looking out for number one and calls him “very supportive of his personal career on the show,” referring to Derek’s comments agreeing with the judges’ critiques of Hope’s performance this week.

And he is making it clear Derek is successful because he gets all the partners with experience! “With all due respect, if I had Nicole Scherzinger, followed by Jennifer Grey, followed by Ricki Lake, I probably wouldn’t be very upset with the judges either!”

I’m sure we haven’t heard the last of this issue. I’ll be tuning in next week to see what happens! So the question is -

[polldaddy poll=5618999]

DO YOU THINK MAKS OWES THE JUDGES AN APOLOGY FOR HIS OUTBUST? WAS HE OUT OF LINE WITH HIS COMMENTS ABOUT DEREK? DO YOU THINK HIS RECENT BEHAVIOR WILL NEGATIVELY AFFECT HIS STANDING ON THE SHOW?

According to a new bombshell report, Jacqueline Laurita, star of the Real Housewives of New Jersey, used to be a former stripper.

The latest issue of In Touch Weekly magazine, out on newsstands on Friday, is stating Jacqueline, 41, used to work as an exotic dancer in Las Vegas, Nev. before she met her husband Chris Laurita.

“She has confirmed her stripper past to multiple friends who are covering up for her,” a source tells the mag. “She is telling everyone to deny it!”

As for the reason Jacqueline decided to strip, another insider states it was because she needed the money. “At the time, she was a single mom who needed to dance at a club in order to pay her bills,” explains the insider. The insider also claims Jacqueline met her husband Chris at the club. Wowzers.

Even more interesting, the mag states the real reason Jacqueline skipped the RHONJ reunion was due to her fear of having her past revealed. “She feared that Danielle Staub would make a surprise appearance and tell all about Jacqueline’s stripping past,” shares a source. “She didn’t want to face the truth!” Indeed, former RHONJ star Danielle did reveal days before the reunion that producers from Bravo had been contacting her to film.

The mag also makes mention of the fact that Chris’ company, Signature Apparel Group, is dealing with major debts, citing the company filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy in 2009 and owed about $25 million. “She doesn’t want any of this coming out,” adds the insider.

There have always been rumblings about Jacqueline’s alleged past as a stripper. In fact just weeks ago, Danielle Staub, who used to be good friends with Jacqueline, tweeted that Jacqueline used to be a stripper. On October 1, a fan tweeted to Danielle ‘Would u mind responding to the rumors that [Jacqueline was] an exotic dancer years ago in LV?’ Danielle tweeted back, “She was and then some.”

And then right after the Posche Fashion show drama and falling out with Teresa Giudice, Teresa, in her ever so passive aggresive manner, seemed to insinuate Jacqueline was a past stripper. Teresa tweeted: “And for the record: I don’t believe MG was a stripper but I wouldn’t care anyway. (I have lots of ex-stripper friends… ahem…).” A screenshot of Tre’s tweet is below -

As for Jacqueline, she has yet to deny the report though she did tweet yesterday that Teresa was behind the latest In Touch cover story. “Im bracing myself 4more joy,I hear Teresa put out 1more article in intouch which should be the end of her 7cover contract.Can’t wait,” tweeted Jacqueline.

In the world of Basketball Wives: L.A., it’s hard to keep up with who is the lady Jackie Christie and her cast mates love to hate. On the most recent episode, Laura Govan is the target, but up until then, Draya Michele bore the brunt of Jackie’s wrath. After the ladies confronted Draya about past child neglect allegations (leaving her in tears), the group received backlash for bullying, with Jackie as the ringleader.

In a recent interview, Jackie speaks out about the “misconception.” She says, “The biggest misconception is that we are mean and bullies, and we don’t like Draya, but that is not true. We all have something to offer; it’s a lot of judging that goes on, especially because of the way things seem on TV. But once you get to know us as a whole, we all are not bullies and are caring, compassionate women. But we are not bullies—we all are really good people once you get to know us.” Say it one more time and people may just start to believe it!

Of the infamous scene, Jackie, like all reality veterans before her, blames editing for creating a situation that appeared to have all the ladies ganging up on Draya. Jackie explains,“See a lot of people didn’t get to see everything that was being discussed. It comes off like I was being a bully, and it seemed as though we were all just coming down on her, but there were a lot of things that was edited out. Draya wasn’t crying from what I was saying to her.”

She continues, “A lot of things were talked about and said throughout the whole conversation, and yes, I am crazy about my husband, but who wouldn’t be? But I wasn’t just saying it to Draya in a way that came off to be aggressive, even though that is how it may have appeared. Yes, I do have a strong personality, but I also am a loving and caring person.”

Finally, moving on from the Draya drama, Jackie addresses her missing cast mates, Kimsha Artest and Tanya Williams. If you recall, it has been SEVERAL episodes since we’ve laid eyes on those women. Despite a fake facebook page hurling accusations that Shaunie O’Neal orchestrated their absence, both women claim they left on their own because they didn’t like the way their cast members were behaving constant drama.

However, Jackie says we shouldn’t count Kimsha and Tanya out for good yet. She reveals, “I like both of them. I do miss their presence on the show—they are going to come back on a few of the future episodes. We stopped filming now, but they did do a lot of filming separate from myself, because a lot of times we don’t film together. But I do like both of them; I would love to see them be a part of the show again in the future.”

Switching gears from Los Angeles to Miami, recently Royce Reed of the original Basketball Wives claimed she was leaving the show. Once again heading to Twitter to track her career decisions, Royce has changed her tune and decided to return for season four.

Royce tweeted, “Well, As stated last week pertaining 2 BBW season 4 tht things may change and after SEVERAL conversations I have decided 2 return for Season 4. How much, I don’t know because I won’t compromise my career. I was NEVER cut/fired and my decision to return is solely based on negotiations, and messages from my fans. I love y’all and u will see a different side of me Season 4. #ImOuttie”

While many of her fellow cast mates have threatened not to film with Royce, she did receive some love from Tami Roman, who responded, “OK, I don’t know whether 2hug u or smack the ish outta u-girl don’t take me on emotional roller coaster LOL-welcome back :)”

WHAT DO YOU THINK OF JACKIE’S INTERVIEW? IS SHE A BULLY? ARE YOU EXCITED ROYCE WILL BE RETURNING TO BASKETBALL WIVES: MIAMI? DO YOU THINK SHE WAS EVER REALLY GOING TO LEAVE?
