When the IRS freezes your bank accounts because you owe them thousands of dollars and the rest of the industry has labeled you as unhireable, you jump at any legitimate offer that comes your way, unless you'reLindsay Lohan.
The troubled starlet was offered one of the biggest Dancing with the Stars salaries – $550,000 – to compete in the upcoming season, but she turned it down, says TMZ! Lindsay has reportedly said that she refuses to do reality TV, thinking she's too talented to stoop to those levels of desperation just yet.
The Real Housewives of Atlanta star NeNe Leakes may have moved to Hollywood, but she's keepin' it real out there. Here she is on Saturday night, hosting the grand opening of West Hollywood’s latest social soiree, “The Cake Factory”.
NeNe, accompanied by Gregg, popped by to check out (and introduce) the newly redesigned Factory Nightclub. NeNe’s and her blonde bangs (at this point, I can't imagine her ditching them!) made their way through the crowd of over one thousand guests to take to the mic. She reminded the crowd of her former days a stripper and surprised fans by leaving her VIP area to take pictures and mingle with everyone.
TELL US – DO YOU THINK NENE WILL CONTINUE TO KEEP IT REAL OR WILL HOLLYWOOD GO TO HER HEAD?

The original Basketball Wives are gearing up for a spring premiere, and Tami Roman promises that it won't disappoint.

Last night on Real Housewives of Atlanta it was the great booty show-down. Really. Kenya Moore decided to twirl all over Phaedra Parks' workout video and co-opt it as her own based purely on the fact that she thinks her butt is hotter and that she is more recognizable. Mind you, this is her opinion.
Things begin with Cynthia Bailey judging a hair show. And because she's contractually obligated to spend time with Kenya, Kenya shows up to "support" her. Kenya smizes at the camera, pretends to be earnest, and claims that she and Cynthia have started to become friends. Meanwhile Cynthia is shooting her a wicked stink eye and looking like the last booty she wants to see walk through the door belongs to Kenya.
Speaking of booties… it would appear there's a new horse in the OK get crazy and twirl corral. Chatting show-side with Lawrence and Derek J (bitchy step-sisters 1 & 2), it is revealed that the ever-humble, never wacky Kenya is coming out with her own booty workout video. A Stallion Workout video to be precise and that stallion aims to usurp Phaedra's donkey booty project.
