On last night’s episode of Flipping Out, Jeff Lewis continues to shake things up at Jeff Lewis Design by firing Trace and promoting the fairly invisible Jett to an office job. Zoila returns to her professional duties after a few too many days watching telenovelas on pain meds, and the Chaz Dean Studio Cole remodel finally comes to an end – but not without many hiccups.
It’s employee review time at JLD! Jeff informs us he has no regrets about letting Sarah go; and in light of her firing Gage has convinced him to evaluate all of his employees. Jett will be the next one to take his turn under the magnifying glass, especially since Gage Jeff isn’t sure if he is pulling his weight around the office. Eeks – watch out Jettster! Gage probably wants you O-U-T because you’re a cutie patootie and he’s threatened! Perhaps sensing that Jeff has it out for him, Jett makes a joke about getting fired later while Gage snootily cuts him a look, like: ‘Don’t push your luck, b*tch!’

The mag adds that just on Aug. 4, Kimmie, 30, got a call from a friend relaying a message from Reggie, 26, –while she was at Vera Wang’s for a dress fitting. “It was a friend telling Kim that her ex Reggie Bush needed to talk to her,” reveals a source close to Kim. “He was begging her to call off the wedding — and give him another chance.” Wowzers.
The source however adds that Reggie has no chance with Kimmie. “She was burned by the end of their relationship, and she’s truly moved on.” reveals the source. In the meantime, Kimmie is still set to wedKris Humphries on August 20.

TELL US – EXCITED ABOUT THE NEW SEASON OF TOP CHEF? WILL YOU BE WATCHING TOP CHEF JUST DESSERTS?
The latest drama began on twitter Sunday night when former RHONJ star Danielle Staubstated Melissa was the one who fed her all the information about Teresa. If you recall, Danielle brought up Melissa’s son during the RHONJ reunion last year, accusing Teresa of not seeing her nephew. This of course set Teresa off bringing us the infamous shoving of Andy Cohen.
While Melissa has always maintained she was not the one who fed Danielle that information, Danielle is now stating otherwise even claiming she has proof in the form of voice mails and emails. Wowzers.
It all started when one of Danielle’s fans tweeted to her as well as Andy wanting to know why he felt the need to mention Danielle’s name on WWHL on Sunday night while Teresa was on. Danielle then tweeted back, “@bravoandy @bravotv is this true? Maybe I should show everyone what @melissagorga wrote my fb inbox about Teresa?” It didn’t end there as Danielle continued tweeting. Below are some of her tweets about Melissa -
“Wow careful now bc ive got emails from her own sisterinlaw w so much Teresa dirt.”
“@melissagorga Melissa Did you ever tell Teresa you were contacting me constantly?”
“@melissagorga did you tell tre you wanted to come on w me last season To get back at her”
“@melissagorga and everytime you & Tre’s brother begged me to come on w me – I said no!”
When a fan tweeted that Melissa was the one who fed Danielle the reunion info, Danielle responded with “she did indeed tell me how else would I know.”
Following Danielle’s tweets, Melissa tweeted the following denial – “Let’s be clear. After I posted abt the xmas cookies incident on FB she approached me to film w/ her. Did I film? No! Begged her? Please.”
Danielle then responded stating she has saved emails and voicemails from Melissa. “Be careful dear I saved all your lengthy emails and recorded your calls to me you sure you wanna lie ???” tweeted Dirty D. Danielle also claimed that on 11/09, Melissa sent this message – “”will you (DS) help me expose Teresa and Joe please?”
Teresa caught wind of Danielle’s tweets and even went as far as to tweet “thank you” to Danielle, the same woman who called her an ape last year and said she wanted to dress up as her for Halloween.
Teresa tweeted, “But someone else was tweeting tonight too. Thank you @daniellestaub for telling the truth. I’m sad but not surprised. #famewhore.” She is referring to Melissa as a famewhore and wrote that tweet just minutes after writing, “I’ve been on Twitter for 2 yrs now and I’ve NEVER ever ever retweeted a mean comment ab a castmember or family member…” Go figure. Teresa also described Danielle’s tweets as “heartbreaking.”
Fast forward to today and it seems Teresa might have had a change of heart. She tweeted Monday night, “I don’t believe Melissa would ever talk to @daniellestaub . Danielle, stop tweeting about my family. If you got something, show it or STFU!” But then again, in knowing Tre, this could just be her passive aggressive way of encouraging Danielle to leak whatever information she has.
As of the moment, it appears Danielle is working to release the voicemails and emails she claims to have of Melissa. Guess we will have to wait and see. If Danielle’s claims are true, then this family feud has definitely taken a turn for the nasty-ier. This could also be Danielle’s way of getting back on the show as her new show Famous Food is flopping on VH1. And as we reported, the 4th season of RHONJ is currently filming.

While Russell, 47, admitted to pushing Taylor, 40, in the heat of their arguments, the current issue of the National Enquirer reports the physical abuse Taylor experienced was much more brutal — once leaving her with a dislocated jaw and almost blinding her in one eye.
“Taylor and Russell’s on-air arguments were well-documented, but behind the scenes the situation was far worse,” a show insider reveals stating that when producers approached her about revealing the dramatic details on camera, she suddenly “clammed up” because she was terrified of how Russell would react.
The mag reports that Taylor, who witness physical abuse in her home in Oklahoma as a child, finally decided to come clean for the sake of her 5-year-old daughter Kennedy.
“She was finally done being ashamed for a problem that is so near to her heart,” noted the source. “She told her co-stars that during a Super Bowl party, Russell dislocated her jaw and tried to cover it up. Taylor said he wouldn’t even allow her to seek treatment for the injury right away.”
The magazine states that at the final “Housewives” taping for the new season, Taylor shocked her castmates when she showed up with a black eye at Lisa Vanderpumps SUR restaurant in west Hollywood.
“Taylor had on a lot of make-up, but she revealed to the other women that Russell had hit her in the right eye with a closed fist several days earlier,” claimed the source adding that Taylor was rushed to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, where she had a steel plate inserted during an operation to save her eye.
“Taylor has wanted to end the marriage for some time, and the black eye pushed her over the edge and prompted her to file for divorce,” the source added.
A bombshell report came out last week which revealed two of Russell’s exes (an ex-wife and an ex-girlfriend) also accused him of physical abuse. In fact, both exes were able to get restraining orders against him.
The above photo is one of the last photos taken of the couple. It was taken on June 5 and as you can see Taylor has on shades in the pic. In looking at more press photos, Taylor attended another event on June 4 with Russell during which she also wore shades.
It’s the drink toss heard round the world on last night’s season finale of Basketball Wives. Poor Tamra Barney has nothing on Eric Williams when it comes to dousing someone with a cocktail. Last night’s episode mainly featured Jen’s divorce party, with the majority of the women playing supporting roles.
Royce arrives for her meeting to clear the air with Jen, and chaperone Suzie informs her that Jen has left already, unable to forgive Royce for the twitter battles she’s been waging. Royce loves that Jen can dish it, but she can’t take it. According to Royce, her mean tweets (are you there Simon? It’s me, Royce.) are just in response to the other girls smack talk. She begins reading some of Jen’s hypocritical twittersations to Suzie who is trying super hard to look busy with her appetizer. Suzie is this close to being in good with the other ladies…the last thing she needs is for Royce to remind her that she is still friends with her. Royce is indifferent to Jen’s opinion of her.

Bravo executive and talk show host Andy Cohen is planning to write a memoir!
Andy, 43, himself made the announcement Monday on his blog. “It’ll be a memoir, of sorts, about my intersections with pop culture over the years, from growing up in front of the TV as a kid in St. Louis to my years at CBS News, all the way up to today,” he wrote.
The book will chronicle Andy’s journey from a closeted gay teen growing up in 1970s suburban St. Louis to a multi-hyphenate cable television powerhouse. The yet-untitled book, which is being published by Henry Holt and Company, will be released next summer.
In other news, Huffington Post columnist Rob Shuter tweeted days ago that the Real Housewives of New York City will find out this week who will be returning or getting the axe.
Filming on the new season will reportedly begin by labor day. And judging from recent comments by Andy Cohen, it’s safe to assume there will be a major shake-up with the cast.
Rob also tweeted last week that two of the RHONY housewives are so desperate to remain on the show that they told Bravo they are willing to take a huge pay “cut in $270,000 per season they make.” Wowzers. Of course, we will report on the latest the minute the cast announcement is made.
TELL US – WILL YOU READ ANDY’S MEMOIR? THOUGHTS ON THE LATEST WITH THE RHONY CASTING?
UPDATE: The Hollywood Reporter states Andy received a “low seven-figure” amount for his forthcoming memoir.
The latest is that the 19-year-old Teen Mom 2 star was arrested again yesterday in North Carolina after violating her probation.
Jenelle’s lawyer tells TMZ she had a meeting with her parole officer yesterday and tested positive for marijuana and opiates, which led to her arrest.
She was placed on $10,000 bond though she has now been released. Jenelle was originally sentenced back in April to 12 months probation after pleading guilty to possession of drug paraphernalia. She’s due back in court on August 24.
Just weeks ago, TMZ posted photos of Jenelle smoking what appeared to be a pot-filled blunt. Her latest mug shot is below.
