Reality Tea

In an effort to keep that money train going–her words, not mine–Basketball Wives star Evelyn Lozada dishes to VH1 about her cast mate Meeka Claxton, being a villain on the show, and her now settled feud with Tami Roman plus the update on her Non-factor tshirts. Check out excerpts of her interview below, followed by head b*tch in charge Shaunie O’Neal’s thoughts on Meeka and her potential return next season.

Do you ever worry that people see you as a villain on this show?

You need to have a really thick skin to be on this show. I know Suzie can’t even watch the show after we’re done taping because she can’t take it, but you have to get used to that and expect that people will label you. I think people take me being honest and straightforward as me being a bitch but I don’t see anything wrong with that. I’d rather be a villain than a sweet girl, that’s not me.

Honesty is such a big issue on the show.

Everyone’s not honest though. That’s why there’s problems with certain cast members. They aren’t honest and they create drama and lies. That’s why there’s the drama we have on the show. Meeka running around and talking about everybody, it got her in a mess. Meeka just came on as a fan of the show, she sent her picture in, she really wanted to be on the show, the producers didn’t search for her. She tried so hard to fit in instead of just being herself and that’s where things backfired.

You never had direct drama with her, that we saw anyway. Was there any more to your relationship?

After watching the show and seeing certain comments that she made like “I felt that they wanted me to choose sides,” it pisses me off because we made it very clear when we first met and it was on film, “Make your own opinions.” We told her how we feel but base your own opinions. But during filming, I told her to her face, “I don’t like you and I don’t hate you. I feel nothing toward you.” She hasn’t done anything to me directly, it’s just that, why would she say that? And this bullsh*t lawsuit she has with Tami, I think it’s ridiculous.

Even before the fight episode aired, Tami had been saying that Meeka was not a victim and that, you know, she raised her hand up and all that. From what you saw, is that what happened?

Look, this is my thing, everybody handles things differently and as anybody knows, Tami has a temper and especially if you’re lying about her and Meeka was twisting around Tami’s words and it’s kind of…maybe you wouldn’t handle the situation that way but when you’re talking about Tami…

Did you ever think Tami’s lawsuit against you would happen?

No, I thought it was ridiculous. I continued to sell the shirts and I’m still selling them.

So what’s the deal with that, didn’t you max out at your 500 shirts?

You know what, I could probably guess that I sold more than 500 but I didn’t look at my quarterly numbers. I didn’t want to come here lying, so I just chose not to know. I didn’t check.

Don’t you worry about breaking your word with Tami? What if she’s upset that you went over that limit?

I’d say that everyone’s here to make money, everyone signs on to this show for a reason, to promote something, so this opportunity came to me, it was a topic of conversation on the show, and I would be an idiot not to profit from it. Listen, it’s a recession!

What does Chad think about Jennifer’s comments about him?

Chad doesn’t really care about anything. We ran into her at the movie theater and they didn’t talk and that made me very uncomfortable, so obviously the fact that he hasn’t said anything says a lot. I feel like I’m in the middle. And it stems from the interview.

Do you ever watch the show and regret anything or wish the fights didn’t happen?

I think everyone does. But you’re forced to deal with things you normally wouldn’t deal with. So you’re already going into filming pissed and and then things happen and it just builds and builds and builds and things happen…We really are nice people though, I swear.

Also adding her two cents about Meeka is ringleader producer Shaunie O’Neal. Of her costar, Shaunie says, “I didn’t spend a lot of time with her, I experienced her on a few occasions, but the most time I spent with her was in Rome and that’s when I figured out that she was a little sketchy…but I still gave her the benefit of the doubt.” However, it was that fateful trip to Italy when Shaunie realized that their friendship wasn’t going to work.

She continues, “I knew she was not going to mesh with any of us. I just don’t find her to be an honest person at all and I think her intentions, I don’t know exactly what they were. We have a mutual friend outside the show who let me know that she wanted to come on and be this star and shine, but the way she chose to do it, not so much. All of us could probably take a vote right now and never want to see Meeka again and that’d be just fine.”

As for a potential season four of the show, Shaunie admits that she’d be just fine if Meeka didn’t return. Um, doesn’t she have control over that? Of course, since Shaunie just simply hates drama (eyes rolling), I’m betting we’ll see Meeka at least a little bit next season.

THOUGHTS ON EVELYN AND SHAUNIE’S COMMENTS ABOUT MEEKA? SURPRISED EVELYN IS STILL MAKING THE NON FACTOR T-SHIRTS? DO YOU WANT MEEKA WILL RETURN FOR SEASON FOUR?

It continues to be open season on Bachelor Pad star/famewhore Jake Pavelka as his ex-fiance Vienna Girardi is slamming him once again.

In her blog for the Hollywood Life, Vienna, 25, refers to Jake as being phony. While there have been reports that Jake has been dating his BP costar Erica Rose since filming ended on the show, Vienna, who is now friends with Erica, denies those reports.

“Glad to know that Erica figured out what Jake was like after the show was over, when that “fake” romance never came and saw her,” wrote Vienna. She also took Jake to task for pretending to care about Melissa’s feelings on a recent episode. “Meanwhile, it’s upsetting that Jake is comforting Melissa and pretending to care because he needs her vote,” she added.

Meanwhile, Vienna and her boyfriend Kasey Kahl, who might or might not be the most ridiculous couple in the history of mankind, continue to go strong!

The two, who have stated they are unhappy with the edit ABC is giving them, have now moved in together. The couple spoke to UsWeekly about cohabiting and a possible engagement.

“Right now we just moved in [to] our apartment. We’re just starting to furnish it,” said Vienna. “We will eventually get engaged, yes… We’re just step by step right now.” Kasey, 27, chimes in, “One of my favorite things to do together is just sit at home and relax… I love when she cooks for me because she is an amazing cook.”

And despite the fact that the world can see them fighting every other second Monday nights on ABC, Vienna claims the two hardly ever fight. Uh uh. “I love living with this man because the only thing we ever fought about when we weren’t together was that we weren’t together,” said Vienna “We have an amazing relationship. We really are so happy together! I love going to bed with him and I love waking up to him.”

A new episode of the Bachelor Pad airs tonight on ABC at 8/7c.

A new episode of the Real Housewives of New Jersey is set to air tonight, and once again it’s Giudice vs. Gorga!

However, it’s not Teresa Giudice and Melissa Gorga fueling the drama this time around, but rather Joe Giudice. In the preview clip below, Joe Gorga reveals his brother-in-law sent him a threatening text message asking him not to come to Teresa’s book signing. Teresa was the one who invited her brother and Melissa by the way.

According to J. Gorga, the text read: “So nice of you and your fake wife to support your sister tonight for the first time. Yous are so fake it makes me ill… I’ll break your jaw. I’ll wire it shut.” J. Gorga also adds that Joe referred to him as a word that was bleeped out in the clip. In another preview clip, it sounds like J. Giudice might have used a gay slur that begins with a letter F. Not certain on that however. No word yet on how Teresa’s going to try to clean this one up.

Also coming up on the 15th episode this season titled “Black as Ink,” Caroline’s pride spills over when her two sons set out to launch their bottled-water line. Meanwhile, Lauren’s grand opening for her cosmetic venture brings Jacqueline together with her daughter.

The episode airs on Bravo at 10/9c and a preview clip is below!

In other RHONJ news, a week after it was revealed her dad and step mom were arrested on charges ranging from arson to money laundering, Ashley Holmes is once again defending her parents.

Earlier this year, Matt Holmes Texas home caught on fire garnering him a $429,000 check from the insurance company. Months later, cops revealed a “credible witness” came forward stating Matt started the fire with kerosene and gasoline. Investigators had already suspected arson so Matt was arrested for arson, insurance fraud, and money laundering while his wife Jodi Holmes was arrested for money laundering as well. You can read more about that here.

Ashley, who has now decided to start going by Ashlee, posted the following on her twitter page yesterday -

“As most of you know my dad &step mom are going through a VERY hard time right now.. they are not allowed to comment on anything at this time.. but those of you that are close to us know the truth.. the media is eating them alive and of course are saying MANY things that are untrue.. It’s so hard not to be able to tell our side of this, but we will soon! We’re leaving it in Gods hands now & we know that everything will be ok…Please keep our family in your thoughts and prayers..xo thank you.”

Meanwhile, as we reported earlier this week, Ashley has moved to California! She made the move days ago and later blogged that she got an internship. “I have an internship waiting there for me with Buzznet & Celebuzz. I recently formed my own LLC. I’m currently working on my own clothing line that I hope to launch by 2012. I am working on building my own website… I am also writing a book,” she wrote.

Fans of the show who keep up with the RHONJ on twitter noticed this week that most, if not all, of the cast took a trip to California. We have to wonder if this has anything to do with Ashley. Only time will tell as Bravo is currently filming the 4th season of the show.

And finally, Ashley made the following tweet just moments ago about former RHONJ star Danielle Staub: “LOL guess who keeps trying to contact my boss @LizzieGrubman BEGGING her to rep her…. ? what a joke #clown #notgonnahappen.” The drama never ends.

Bringing you the official Kim Kardashian wedding photos today!

As reported, PEOPLE magazine inked a deal with the Keeping Up With The Kardashians star in which she netted an estimated $1 – $1.5 million for her wedding pictures. Was Kimmie’s wedding worth $1.5 mil? We’ll let you be the judge. Below are more photos from Kimmie’s big day!

Moving on to Kim’s prenup with hubby Kris Humphries as the Hollywood Reporter is confirming she did indeed get one before tying the knot.

So what exactly is at stake in the case that this wedding doesn’t go the distance? Well the report states Kimmie’s $35-million personal fortune, while NBA player Kris, 26, is worth an estimated $8 – $16 million. It is rumored that the prenup will protect the current and future business ventures of Kim, 30.

And finally, the Huffington Post is reporting Kris Humphries now has a new manager! Apparently pimpmomager Kris Jenner has managed to sink her claws into her son-in-law’s bank account by signing him on as a client.

“Kris runs the entire family like a business and that’s why they are all so successful,” a family friend reveals. “Now that Kris [Humphries] is married to the families biggest asset, Kris [Jenner] is going to make sure that she is making all the business decisions.”

This doesn’t exactly come as a big surprise as immediately following daughter Khloe Kardashian’s wedding to Lamar Odom, Kris also become Lamar’s manager.

“Kris is already in early negotiations to brand the newlywed couple today with fragrance deals and other endorsements,” an insider adds “She isn’t going to let some other manager with a different agenda get in the way of that. The amount of money this couple has already made from selling coverage of the wedding is millions and that’s just the tip of the iceberg. Expect his and her clothes, towels, watches, shoes and by the time they have a baby together, forget it. They will be able to buy the bank.”

Gotta hand it to pimpmomager Kris, she doesn’t play when it comes to her 10%!

Big Brother 13

Bringing you the latest spoilers and updates in the Big Brother 13 house!

On Thursday’s live episode, which might or might not have been the best episode yet this season, we saw two of the veterans get evicted.

Danielle was the first HG to be evicted on the double eviction episode after giving a pseudo epic speech. Immediately following Danielle’s eviction, a new HOH competition was played and Kalia came out victorious! As expected, she nominated Jeff and Rachel.

In what no one could have predicted, Porsche ended up winning the POV! What a time for Porsche to come alive. The nominations stayed the same, Jeff ended up leaving the BB house and boy oh boy, he did not take it well. Love Jeff but he came off as a bit of a sore loser.

Following the double eviction, there were some breakdowns, tears, fights and most importantly, a new HOH competition. Below, find out the new HOH winner, the new nominees, Rachel’s pregnancy scare, & the new twist!

Taylor Armstrong and her now deceased husband Russell Armstrong grace the latest cover of UsWeekly magazine under the heading “Reality Suicide Dark Secrets Exposed, Destroyed by Their Pursuit of Fame.”

While the mag touches on a lot of issues with the couple, perhaps the most shocking tidbit is the fact that Taylor, Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star, might have tried to capitalize on the tragic death of Russell. UsWeekly reports that Taylor’s rep “tried to shop her story to press outlets for $100,000.” Wow. One can only assume the rep was doing this with Taylor’s consent.

An insider also tells UsWeekly that in the days following Russell’s death, Taylor was asking how much money she would get from his estate. Russell’s attorney has however publicly stated Russell was broke and had no assets at the time of his death.

The mag touches on how the Armstrongs lived beyond their means while pursuing fame. In fact, family and friends of the duo paint a portrait of an ambitious, financially overextended couple desperate to be on TV and to live in the most coveted zip code at all costs.

Russell’s sister Laurie Kelsoe spoke to the mag stating that proud trophy wife Taylor was desperate to be on RHOBH: “It was all she wanted.” A show insider adds that the Oklahoma native, who bragged about her frequent cosmetic procedures and threw her daughter a $60,000 birthday party last season, “had a need to prove she was worthy.”

However it wasn’t just Taylor, whose opening credits for season 2 was intended to be “I fought too hard for this zip code to go home now,” who wanted fame. Russell was also on board for the ride. “He thought it was a good way for them to make money,” adds the source. This falls in line with a comment Russell made in one of his last interviews in which he called Bravo “bastards” while stating publicity from the show was good for his businesses.

And in other to get on the show, Taylor and Russell exaggerated their wealth. “Bravo cast them because they claimed they owned their house and had a real estate portfolio and major businesses. None of it was true,” says a source. The Armstrongs apparently pretended to own their modest $9,000-a-month rental house in L.A.’s Bel Air Crest neighborhood.

Once she joined the show, Taylor tried to keep up with the Joneses. “She was jealous of the way the other women on the show were living,” says a Taylor source. Laurie goes on to add that Taylor racked up a $90,000 American Express bill in July alone. “Russell was spending more than he made,” says his lawyer Ronald Richards. “He maxed out his credit cards.”

Russell’s grieving business partner John Indelicato however brings up a good point in the article when he wonders why Russell ever sought the spotlight: “If you have skeletons and don’t want them out there, you don’t go on a reality show.” Very valid point.

While it appears there were no takers for the $100,000 interview Taylor’s rep was shopping around, the NY Post is reporting today that Taylor is in talks with Bravo about doing an hour long sit-down interview.

“Bravo wants to do a sit-down, one-hour special with [Bravo exec VP and host] Andy Cohen,” said a source. Another source added, “They’ve been discussing options for a week, but no programming has been formalized.”

And while a Bravo rep tried to deny the report by stating, “It’s not true, there are no plans like that,” it seems they forgot to send a memo to Taylor’s rep who confirmed there had been talks. “There is dialogue with Bravo, but no decisions have been made. Anything would be conjecture,” said Taylor’s rep.

The Post used the words “negotiating for an interview” so it would appear there is money involved. Taylor’s rep however makes it clear her client is still grieving over her loss. The rep states Taylor is “still devastated” and hasn’t personally engaged in any talks.

And finally, the current issue of the National Enquirer posted some older photos of Taylor and Russell together including photos of Russell’s sons from his previous relationships. Those photos are below. You can read more about the couple in the current issues of UsWeekly and the National Enquirer. Photo credit: WENN.

Last night’s Jersey Shore begins where last week’s ended. Mike didn’t end up in a menage a twin, Sam and Rawn are googly-eyed and in love, and Snooks is still livid at Mike for trying to sabotage her relationship with Jionni.

The slutty twin wakes up, but her purer version wants to sleep in with Vinny. After she leaves, Vinny describes to Ronnie the tag-team/robbery that Deena pulled on him last night. They both hooked up with the “good” twin, and I’m starting to wonder if there’s just one slutty twin and MTV is using Parent Trap cloning technology.

The Situation is telling the guys about Snooki cheating on Jionni with him two months ago. Across the via, the girls are likewise gossiping about the dudes. After all the crap Mike has been talking, Snooki doesn’t want to eat Sunday dinner with him. The girls also laugh about Vinny getting Deena’s sloppy seconds in the bedroom. Not as humorous to Deena is the guys teasing her about her lady lovin’ as they prepare the family meal. She gets super mad and storms out of the kitchen. Vinny predicts it’s going to be a great dinner.

Could Kim Richards be getting ready to put on her dancing heels? According to a new report, that answer is a strong maybe!

Celebuzz is reporting the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star is in talks to join the new season of Dancing With The Stars! In fact a source close to the ABC show reveals that Kim has been practicing her moves.

Kim, aunt to Paris Hilton, has been reportedly rehearsing her moves in the studio and could be in the lineup when the cast is announced next Monday. It has been reported that ABC usually overcasts for the show just in case one of their major stars doesn’t sign on or one drops at the last minute. So it appears Kim, alongside Evelyn Lozada and others are on the short list to join the show.

Meanwhile, the latest issue of UsWeekly is reporting that Real Housewives of New Jersey star Teresa Giudice was begging producers of the show to cast her. Wowzers.

“She begged producers,” says an insider. “But the show wants real celebrities.” Uh not exactly sure Rob Kardashian qualifies as a “real celebrity.”

Teresa tweeted her disappointment a week ago after a fan told her she should be on the show. “Would [love] to but they don’t want ‘Housewives’ this season. But Playmates are OK?” wrote Teresa.

While the new cast won’t be officially unveiled until August 29 during ABC’s Bachelor Pad, the following celebs have been confirmed to have signed on: Kristin Cavallari, Chaz Bono (Cher’s transgendered son), Rob Kardashian, and according to new reports David Arquette.

Officially out are Snooki, Queen Latifah and Mike Tyson.
