A week after crashing Celebrity Rehab and getting kicked off for not having an addiction, Michaele Salahi’s mom is now defending her daughter, comparing this latest fiasco to the infamous White House incident.

“It’s something you’re invited to go to, then you’re thrown out!” Rosemary Holt tells RadarOnline. “She never said she had an addiction,” adds Rosemary.

“I know the whole story from the time she left here and the paperwork she’d done and the contracts. She was asked to come on, it wasn’t her choice to come on. She was asked to,” says Rosemary, going on to insinuate that there were other reasons the show asked Michaele to come on. “She was brought on, she was told to talk about her feelings, how she survived the White House, her feelings, how she dealt with Bravo and when she went before Congress…,” she says. “That’s what she was brought on for. Then all of a sudden she’s there…the things I heard why she was there…I said ‘you don’t belong there.”

It’s not over yet as Rosemary goes on to ponder how the show could just kick her daughter off. “They signed a contract with my daughter, but yet they can put her out?! Explain that to me. But Missy has to remain with her confidentiality. It should work both ways.”

Allrighty. In other news, RadarOnline also reports that all hell broke loose on the set of Celebrity Rehab over the weekend courtesy of cast member Michael Lohan.

Apparently, it was ‘family day’ and professional famewhore Michael wanted daughter Lindsay Lohan, his youngest daughter “Ali, and the rest of the family to come for ‘family day.’ Michael even wanted Dina to come. They all refused, they don’t want to appear on camera in that setting, period. Michael was very upset and emotions were very raw for him. Soon, thereafter, all hell started to break out between other patients and families,” a show insider reveals, adding that viewers will be in for “quite a shock when it airs.”

Celebrity Rehab 5 is set to premiere sometime in May on VH1.

And as for the ABC 20/20 special about reality television that was scheduled to air this past Friday, it didn’t air as it got bumped for coverage of the Japanese earthquake and tsunami disaster. As of the moment, ABC has yet to announce a new airing date for the special titled “The Phenomenon of Reality Television.” The show was supposed to feature interviews with Michaele, Bethenny Frankel, Kyle Richards and others.

The Bachelor finale aired last night with a happy ending as Brad Womack proposed to his final pick Emily Maynard and she accepted!

However, immediately following the show, we discovered there was already trouble in paradise for the engaged couple. Unlike the previous couples who came on the After The Final Rose special and pretended stated all was perfect in their relationship, Emily, 24, and Brad, 38, displayed some refreshing honesty by admitting they have had some troubles.

They both shockingly revealed they had even broken up once and canceled a planned wedding. The two however stated they are now committed to making things work.

Fast forward to today and sources tell Popeater the two have broken up for good due to Emily’s insecurities. “Emily is so insecure, she just isn’t cut out for all the fame and attention her relationship is under,” a show insider reveals. “The six weeks of shooting the show in paradise was easy, away from prying eyes and photographers, but since they both returned to their normal lives things have been a disaster.”

The sources claim Emily has simply had a tough time adjusting to life after the show with Brad. One of the sources adds that they “would love to say they are going to make it, but they won’t. After we taped the ‘After the Rose,’ it was clear to everyone that this one was not going to work.”

In other news, Ashley Hebert was officially announced as the next Bachelorette last night to the disappointment of many fans, who simply believe she is too boring for the job. “I’ve been single for almost four years,” said Ashley. “I’m excited — I’m making up for lost time.” Ashley’s season of the Bachelorette airs May 23 on ABC.

And finally, it seems former Bachelor “winner” Vienna Girardi has found love again… With a former Bachelorette contestant as she is now dating Kasey Kahl, you know, the crazypants hopeless romantic from Ali Fedotowsky’s season. Yep, the two have been dating for a couple of weeks now and photos of the two lovebirds are below.

TELL US – THOUGHTS ON THE LATEST WITH BRAD AND EMILY? DO YOU THINK THEY WILL MAKE IT? WHAT DID YOU MAKE OF THE ATFR SPECIAL?

The second episode of the Real Housewives of Orange County aired last night, and unlike the season premiere last week, last night was more on the somber side, but still good nonetheless. After all, we did get to meet new gun-toting housewife Peggy Tanous, who is anything but boring.

The episode began with a vomit inducing home scene between Gretchen and her deadbeat boyfriend/professional pipe layer Slade, as I still try to comprehend why Bravo would decide to open the show with this scene. A shirtless Slade goes to wake up Gretchen, who reminds us that she and Slade have been together for a year and a half. Vomit. But it gets better as Slade is now Gretchen’s employee who gets paid in the bedroom. Double vomit. Except Gretchen fails to mention the fact that Slade does get paid from being with her via a check from Bravo. Plus, can someone please inform Gretchen that the sexual jokes/innuendos are really not cute or funny, you know, considering she made the same jokes last season and again on WWHL last night. Though the more I think about it, the more I realize these two are perfect for one another as they are truly one of a kind.

It is now time for mogul Gretchen to have a meeting with her very own Sweetie aka her assistant Shawna. Shawna’s crime? Not having Gretchen’s back during Tamra’s get together last episode. It seems Gretchen is still peeved about the princess comment as she brings it up once again. At this point, Gretchen is without a doubt protesting too much. I mean we get it Gretchen! Between building your empire, humping Slade 24/7 and not taking care of him financially, you are very busy!

A new episode of Bethenny Ever After airs tonight on Bravo at 10/9c.

On the third episode this season titled “Business as Usual,” business is booming for Bethenny but not quite fast enough when it comes to the growth of Skinnygirl Margarita. When Bethenny realizes that liquor stores are unable to replenish their supply quick enough, she enlists Jason to help to figure out the problem. Bethenny then faces the consequences of her boundary issues with other important people in her life – namely her intern Max and her broken hearted baby nurse Gina – she realizes she must find balance in all of these relationships before things spiral out of control. A preview clip is below.

In other news, the always outspoken Ramona Singer had some interesting critique for her pal Bethenny Frankel, during an interview with the Miami Herald to promote her line of pinot grigio available for $13.99 at thewinebuyer.com.

But back to Ramona’s comments, as she, similar to some fans of BEA, takes issue with the way Bethenny treats her in-laws on the show. “How could she not embrace her child’s grandparents?’’ Ramona asked. “That was shocking to me.’’

And finally, Bethenny is launching her own shapewear line. It is called Skinnygirl Shapewear and includes a collection of camis, tanks, half-slips, high-waisted briefs, and leggings, complete with sexy designs and lace detailing, aimed to conceal all the unwanted bulges in all the right places.

“The line ranges from tank tops in black or beige to my signature color, red, which is a confidence color, and a little daring, but not white because it can make anyone look bigger,” Bethenny tells WWD of the collection.

But unlike the Squeez shapewear line of Bethenny’s former BFF Jill Zarin (and no, we’re not certain which line came first), Bethenny reveals her collection offers more than just panty-smoothing pieces. She describes some of the items as “lazy lingerie” such as a sexy apron with a bra, which she states is “a fun item with a little skirt you might wear for Valentine’s Day to wake up … and fix your husband breakfast in.”

The items will sell for $20-$40 and will be available on Skinnygirlshapers.com.

Following weeks of drama both on and off the show, it all ends tonight as Brad Womack will pick and propose to one of his final two women on the Bachelor.

The two lucky ladies are Chantal O’Brien, 28, – the sassy divorcee who slapped Brad on the first night, and Emily Maynard, 24, – the single mother of one.

“When you know [you're in love], you just know. And I just knew,” Brad, 38, told UsWeekly of his final pick. “I’m grateful to have a second chance…I can promise you there is a very happy ending.” The latest issue of UsWeekly also sheds some light on the proposal details, revealing that Brad ended up proposing to his final pick a total of 4 times! Apparently, “the crew wanted different camera angles,” explained an onlooker.

Meanwhile, Bachelor insider Reality Steve posted a surprising report yesterday, revealing that there is already some trouble in paradise for Brad and his final pick. In fact, the two have reportedly broken up and gotten back together once since the show stopped filming months ago.

According to RS, Brad and his “fiance” make that shocking revelation on tonight’s After The Final Rose on ABC. RS also reveals that unlike the previous Bachelor(ette) couples who appear very lovey-dovey on the ATFR tapings, Brad and his final pick appeared very tense on stage. Wowzers.

And finally, the new Bachelorette will officially be announced tonight on the Jimmy Kimmel Show. According to reports, that job went to Ashley Hebert because Brad’s runner up turned it down. The reason? She is already in a new relationship.

Another day, another bikini photo post of Kelly Bensimon despite the outcries from the general public.

This time around, the Real Housewives of NYC star and former model strutted her stuff while donning a black and brown patterned string bikini in Miami over the weekend.

Kelly was photographed walking around the beach and lounging all while soaking up some sun. “Just went jet-skiing,” tweeted Kelly on Saturday. “Miami is beautiful today.” Those bikini photos are below!

Meanwhile, it seems Kelly, 42, is still searching for Mr. Right as she told Popeater last week what kind of man she’s looking for.

“I want a guy who can kick back and grab a few beers and wings at the bar. I don’t need all the fancy restaurants,” revealed Kelly.  “You can say, I have a much different taste in men than LuAnn [de Lesseps],” she joked.

As for season 4 of the NYC Housewives, Kelly states, “Everything is more real … it’s like a brand new ‘Housewives,’” adding that everything is “completely different” with Bethenny Frankel gone from the show. Uh uh.

Also below is a pretty darn odd/weird/shocking photo of Kelly. Rather than explain it to you, we’ll just let you take a peek and tell us what you think.

Everybody knows Phaedra Parks is more than just your typical Bravo housewife.  After all, the 38-year-old attorney is also a full time southern belle and a self proclaimed connoisseur of finer foods.

And in a new interview with RadarOnline, the Real Housewives of Atlanta star reveals she is working on writing a book while also developing a number of reality shows.

So what will Phaedra’s book entail? “It’s about being a southern belle and all the accoutrements that go with it,” Phaedra reveals. “It’s a modern day twist on etiquette and being a lady. And it’s alright for women to embrace their ladylike side.”

“It’s high time that women start enjoying being ladies again. People have moved away from that,” adds Phaedra of the book which is expected to be released by the end of summer or early fall. “I want to give my tips,” she says. “So many people over the years have asked me about how to have it all without losing yourself.”

Meanwhile, Phaedra is also busy pitching three new reality shows which she describes as being “empowering.”

“The first show is a docudrama and will take a group of women and empower them,” she says. “The second show is more of a documentary that deals with serious issues of dating. And the third show is more fun and lighthearted focusing on alternative lifestyles.”

It was the fight seen around the country world as things got physical between Bad Girls Club stars Ashley King and Kori Koether on the last episode of the show.

The drama began when the girls got home from a late club outing and the brewing feud over Char between them reached a boiling point. Ashley threw the first punch but Kori, shocking many fans of the show, seemed to finish the fight. There is a pretty general consensus that Kori won this fight and in fact, “Damn Ashley” was a trending topic on twitter Monday night as many couldn’t believe Ashley came out with a black eye.

Well, following the fight, below is what Ashley had to say in her Oxygen blog -

“The fight with Kori and I was a fight that I should’ve fought with Char but OF COURSE, Kori tries to fight all of Char’s battles because as we all know Char has no hands. It started at the club we were at. Kori got into a fight with the guy Char was trying to get and his girlfriend. Then the gf flipped me off so I spazzed out. Char tried to call us out saying we are embarrassing blasah blasah blah. So I went in on Char and out of the corner of my eye I seen Kori siding with her and that’s when I went in on Kori. I’m trying to have both of our backs while she’s stabbing me in mine. So at that point Kori started it and I had to finish it once again.”

As for Kori, she took to her twitter page and stated, “Ya i fought ash cause i was just so sick of hearin about Char, right when we got home Ash kept talking about Char it was annoying!… yes ashley deff did instigate it. It was bull shit cause i didnt wanna keep hearing about char! Ashley said she was not chars follower yet she kept talking about char when our fight happened!”

Kori adds that she and Ashley are “cordial” today but that she and everyone else “hates Char.”

And a new episode of the show airs tonight on the Oxygen network at 9/8c. On the 8th episode this season titled “Weak Sauce,” trouble looms for Jennifer when nemeses Nikki and Lauren gain an unforeseen ally. Meanwhile, Jessica’s hard-partying brother arrives at the house and things get a little steamy between him and Kori.
