A new episode of the Real Housewives of Orange County aired last night on Bravo bringing us some fake boobs & faker friendships, a “sexy” Spain vacation, a filler vow renewal ceremony, and most importantly some excellent evidence footage for certain Coto employees, just in case they ever decide to file a certain sexual harassment lawsuit.
The episode begins with Vicki taking some time out of her very busy work schedule to go on a boat ride with Donn and the kids. And no she didn’t bring her laptop, believe me – I was looking for it. But unfortunately for Vicki’s family, fun Vicki is only reserved for her helpless employees as she is more of a Debbie Downer on the boat.

Following the drama filled “breakdown” episode last week, a new episode ofBethenny Ever Afterairs tonight on Bravo at 10/9c.
On the 7th episode this season titled “The Mile High Club,” Bethenny anticipates her debut on “Skating With the Stars,” yet she feels like she’s on thin ice.

In other Bethenny Frankel news, some good news as her latest book A Place of Yes is currently #5 on the New York Time’s Best-Seller list for Hardcover Advice and Misc. This makes the third time Bethenny has made the list. Bethenny continues to ride high as Bravo recently announced her show has been picked up for a third season and a report came out last week stating she has received her own talk show.
And speaking of a place of yes, Bethenny has received criticism from many fans of her show this season for doing the exact opposite aka coming from a place of no by saying no to Jason’s parents, no to Jason, etc. And following last week’s episode in which she appeared ungrateful after receiving some surprise presents at her birthday party, which led to an odd breakdown, more fans continue to turn against her, bringing us to the question below.
Meanwhile, following the debut of Bravo’s new show Pregnant In Heels in which Rosie Pope, a maternity concierge caters to the affluent, Jill Zarin had a critique of her own. “Watching Preg in Heels. Is she deaf or have speech impediment? I can’t understand her. Does anyone else notice that? Or is it just me?” tweeted a renewed Jill. And when a fan accused her of being mean, she responded, “I was not trying to be mean. She is star of her own show and I can’t understand all her words. Asking if am only one who noticed.”

After the widely reported contract hold outs, all of the Jersey Shore cast members have signed on to return for season 4!
TMZ reports Snooki, The Situation, JWoww and the rest of the gang will be heading to Italy in May to start filming. While TMZ doesn’t state the exact amount the cast will be earning, it does add that everyone is “very pleased with the outcome.”
Meanwhile, Entertainment Weekly is reporting that the cast got a HUGE raise! Just how huge? Let’s try over $100,000 per episode! Yes, you read that right. Sources close to the negotiations tell EW members of the “core group” are now pulling down at least $100,000 per episode.
With each season producing an average of 14 episodes, this means a number of the Jersey Shore cast will earn over $1 million each for season 4 to simply drink, party & fight. Wowzers! The cast reportedly earned $30,000 per episode for season 3.
And finally, MTV announced last week it has picked up two Jersey Shore spin-off shows. The first show will focus on DJ Pauly D and his life on the road as “one of the country’s most in-demand DJs.” While the second show will follow BFFs Snooki and JWoww, chronicling their experiences as roommates after their lives on “Jersey Shore.”
MTV has ordered 12 episodes of each spin-off, and plans to debut both shows sometime in 2012.

If there’s one thing to be learned from last night’s Celebrity Apprentice, it is that ratings trumps all. Meaning how else can you explain Donald Trump choosing to keep Gary Busey over the other sane more deserving contestants?
The challenge yesterday was to create a marketing campaign for the Australian Gold sunscreen products. The men’s Team Backbone came out on the losing end after the Australian Gold execs decided they did not like the pirates theme nor the fact that the men failed to integrate their key brand messaging aka their Koala Bear mascot.
The team managers were Mark McGrathand La Toya Jackson. In the board room, the men’s team banded together, making it crystal clear Gary was their weakest link and deserved to go home. Unfortunately for Mark, he was sent packing after the Donald realized the entertaining Gary was better for the ratings.
Now onto the good stuff as Nene Leakes displayed her lack of class on national television yet again, but this time around in front of a few million more viewers than that show on Bravo.
While in the board room, Nene called out La Toya for not being a good team manager. Okay, fair enough. La Toya defended herself and all seemed to be okay as the women’s team did win after all.
Donald asked Nene to apologize to La Toya and she refused. Still fair enough. However, upon exiting the board room, the Nene decided to completely lose her sh*t, going off on La Toya and repeatedly insulting her.
“Don’t ever try me like that! I worked my a– off while you sat there and looked like Casper the Ghost. Listen here, Casper,” said Nene. “The only reason you’ve gotten this far is because of your last name. You faked it for 50 years. You are very old. You need to play your age and not 12. You are an old lady.” And why exactly is Nene famous herself?
La Toya managed to keep her cool and simply walked away. “She feels she can run over me. I will not stoop to her level. We’re torn from two different cloths. I’m sorry,” stated La Toya aka she is trash and I am not.
La Toya also summed up the Nene perfectly when she stated, “Nene is nothing but a big bully. She’s got a big mouth. That’s all she’s is – mouth and height. She uses that to her advantage.” And where was Nene’s mouth when Dionne Warwick was calling her a coward? Seems like she definitely enjoys picking on those she deems as being weak aka La Toya and Kim Zolciak.
And once again, Nene received a lot of backlash from fans causing her to make the following tweets last night -
“Ok Ok Ok yall r blowing my timeline up! Latoya & I hav made peace & moved on!”
“I luv my tweetie pies but Some of yall do flip flop from week 2 week but it’s all good! I’m n a really good place rite now so it’s ok.”
Guess that makes it all okay. And judging from next week’s previews, it seems the Nene will continue to rear its ugly attitude.

A week after Playboy founder Hugh Hefnerannounced on twitter that Karina Smirnoffhad posed nude for the May issue of the mag, many are still surprised and wondering why she made that choice.
Well, the Dancing With The Stars pro is explaining just that via excerpts from her interview with Playboy. “I’m fearless and love the adrenaline rush,” Karina, 32, tells the mag. “Sexy is the confident energy a person produces. Sexy is the comfortable feeling of being who you are.”
PEOPLE also reports that the higher ups at DWTS are not upset with Karina for posing nude. “They did know ahead of time and they still gave her one of the best pairings,” reveals a source.
According to the site, the two went on a first date on Friday night. As for how the date came about, TMZ states it all started with Pia who developed a crush on Mark as they both shoot their respective shows on the CBS Television City lot in L.A.
Pia apparently had her eye on Mark for weeks and decided to give her friend a piece of paper with her number on it. That friend handed it to DWTS contestant Chris Jericho, who then passed it on to Mark.
Mark was said to have been more than receptive and even rescheduled a music video shoot so he could go on their date on Friday. The two are said to be smitten and plan to do it all again soon. A photo of Mark and Pia after their date is below!
Pia seems to be having a pretty good week as it was also reported she scored herself a record deal less than 24 hours after her Idol elimination.
