Real Housewives of DC
Days after Andy Cohen revealed there was a bit of a standstill between the Real Housewives of DC and Bravo over the return of Michaele Salahi, a new report now states the show is officially dunzo!

RadarOnline is reporting that Bravo has decided to can the DC Housewives for good. The reported reason? The show just didn’t perform well enough for the network.

“The show just didn’t do well and it wasn’t worth airing another season,” a source close to the situation told Radar. “The DC housewives were meant to be starting shooting their second season now and they haven’t heard a peep from Bravo.”

“No one from the cast has been contacted yet and told that the show is cancelled,” dishes the source.

The source adds that the ratings disaster of the Real Housewives of Miami and the so-so ratings for the DC Housewives is now forcing Bravo to reconsider its housewives strategy. “After DC failed in the ratings and Miami just bombed, they realized they can’t just start a show anywhere and it will succeed,” the source said. “Bravo used to think it was about the brand and they could switch the housewives at any point but now they have realized it is about the women involved and that has changed their perspective.”

The source adds that Bravo has “realized a lot with the failure of DC and Miami, and they’re going to concentrate on the successful shows they have and not expand any further.” The source reveals when it comes to the DC franchise, “We’re just hoping that people forget it ever happened.” Ouch.

The report yesterday stated that DC housewives Mary Schmidt Amons, Cat Ommaney, Lynda Erkiletian, and Stacie Turner had banded together and threatened to walk if Bravo allowed the Salahis to return. And quite frankly, the DC Housewives are no Real Housewives of New Jersey, which seems to be doing just fine and dandy following the exit of Danielle Staub.

This news doesn’t come as a surprise because when you take away the Salahis, the Real Housewives of DC equals the Real Housewives of Miami, except probably worse. While the DC Housewives minus the Salahis might have been successful in the earlier days of Bravo Housewives (think season 1 & 2 of the OC Housewives), the ante has however been upped in recent years thanks to the antics of some of the other franchises, aka table flipping and limo fights. The DC ladies might however want to take this news as a compliment as it means they are simply too boring classy for the successful Bravo franchise.

By the way, the Real Housewives of DC had higher ratings than the Miami Housewives. And this news brings us to an interesting question…

Rachel Zoe, 39, is officially a mom!

PEOPLE magazine is reporting the celebrity stylist and husband Rodger Berman welcomed their first child today, a son named Skyler Morrison Berman, in Los Angeles. He weighed in at 6 lbs., 12 oz. and is 20 inches long.

“Mom and Dad ‘LITERALLY’ could not be happier or more in love with their son!” the couple said in a statement to PEOPLE.

Bravo announced earlier this year the renewal of The Rachel Zoe Project for a 4th season. Congrats to Rachel and Rodger!

It seems following their most recent break up in January, the poster couple for on-again off-again relationships, Ronnie Magro and Sammi Giancola, continue to remain broken up.

In the latest issue of Life & Style magazine, the Jersey Shore stars open up about their break up and the reason they might be done for good this time.

According to Ronnie, he has now realized he and Sam are just better off apart. “Some people are just toxic to each other,” says Ronnie, adding that Sammie’s lie about hooking up with a friend on the show was also a breaking point. “Cheating is where I draw the line,” states Single Ronnie, 25, adding that he’s too young for a relationship.

Sammi, 24, reveals the guy Arvin was just a friend, but now she says she’ll never speak to him again. “I was given a bad-luck streak, and it was like everything at once came tumbling down,” Sammi tells Life & Style.

“We’re better off career- and health-wise figuring out what we need for ourselves,” adds Ronnie.

And sad news for fans of the show as the season 3 finale airs tonight on MTV at 10/9c. On the 13th and final episode of the season, “summer comes to an end in the Season 2 finale, which finds one couple reaching a crossroads in their relationship, while another couple makes theirs official.”

In other Shore news, Snooki continues to enjoy the good life as she was photographed in her bathing suit not once, but twice in the past week. First, the Snooks hosted a pool party at Wet Republic in Vegas wearing a bikini and a cover up, and then days later she was photographed in Hawaii in a one piece. More photos of the Snooks below!

Months after they tied the knot, Teen Mom 2 stars Leah Messer and husband Corey Simms show off their wedding pics in the latest issue of UsWeekly magazine.

Together since early 2009 and parents to 15-month-old twin girls Aliannah and Aleeah, Leah, 18, and Corey, 20, officially wed on Oct. 17 at Charleston, West Virginia’s Coonskin Park.

Leah beamed as she wore a $1,549 Maggie Sottero gown, purchased by her mom at a 30 percent discount! “I felt really pretty in it,” said Leah and Corey agrees. “She took my breath away,” said Corey. “I just got so emotional when I saw her.”

Corey, who prides himself on being a “redneck,” sported a camouflage vest and tie tux from Perry Ellis. The pair showed off their rings, Leah’s a white-gold band and Corey’s a titanium camouflage-patterned band engraved with “forever and always.” Aww. You can read more about the couple’s wedding as well as view the full wedding album in the latest issue of UsWeekly.

In other Teen Mom news, In Touch magazine is reporting this week that Jenelle Evans or her mom rather might want to gear up for another custody battle.

Apparently, Jenelle’s baby daddy Andrew Lewis now wants their 19-month-old son Jace to come live with him. “I love him and I want him in my life,” says Andrew in an interview with In Touch. “Jenelle has put me through hell, never letting me see our son.”

Andrew adds that Jenelle “went completely off the deep end” when she found out about his new son, Jake, with his current girlfriend, Ashley Termini. “She was incredibly mean and said I don’t deserve to have kids,” says Andrew.

And while some of the Teen Mom 2 stars continue to experience drama off the show, there was a lot of drama to go around this week on the latest episode. Adam continued to be a jerk, as he complained about owing and having to pay over $2,000 in child support to Chelsea. Meanwhile, with a little help from her mom, Kailyn began the process of filing a joint custody agreement to protect her and her son. Jenelle continued to be a screw up while Leah continued to deal with the health problems of one of her twin daughters.

Next week is the finale, as we will finally get to see Leah and Corey get married, plus Jenelle getting arrested.

In today’s not so shocking news, a 24-year-old playmate is reportedly cheating on her 84-year-old rich fiance with a guy her age.

According to new report by Life & Style magazine, Crystal Harris, who is set to tie the knot with Hugh Hefner in June, has been secretly seeing Jordan McGraw aka the son of Dr. Phil.

It seems one of the staffers for Life & Style happened to be in the same spot as the two alleged lovebirds, stating that they saw Crystal and Jordan, both age 24, cozy up at the Chateau Marmont in LA on March 14. While Crystal was trying to remain low-key, Jordan apparently didn’t care to hide his affections, kissing her shoulder and trying to hold her hand.

“They’ve been sneaking around because Crystal is supposed to be happily engaged to Hef, and going out in public with Jordan would tarnish Hef and Crystal’s relationship image,” a source reveals to the mag.

Jordan is a song writer and the pair is said to have met through the Organica record label, where Jordan was working with Crystal on her music. “Jordan was let go from Organica for dating female clients under the label,” the source says.

A Playboy rep admits that Jordan and Crystal were indeed at the Chateau Marmont on March 14, but denies any funny business. “They were out together, but with a group of people and they’re all just friends,” the rep tells E! News. “Crystal and Jordan are also working on music together, so they have a business relationship. Crystal has a song coming out in June.”

Not that we would expect a rep to admit their client was cheating. Life & Style adds that despite Crystal’s impending June 18 wedding date to Hef, sources reveal she and Jordan are very happy together.

A fun fact you ask? In her book Sliding Into Home, Kendra Wilkinson admits she was still dating Hef when she starting sneaking around with now hubby Hank Baskett. “Our relationship was secret,” Kendra wrote. “[Hank] could only see me in private.”

This season of the Real Housewives of Miami has brought many things Cuban, think a Cuban airhead Barbie, an authentic Cuban pig roast, and a Cuban witch, though it seems the best had yet to come as we are introduced to a Cuban Brad Pitt on this episode. Muy Caliente!

The episode begins with the wedding of Marysol and French beau Phillipe, who might or might not be at risk of getting deported hence the quickie wedding. Marysol states she is now calm but accuses Phillipe of being nervous. I don’t know about you but he didn’t look that nervous to me, looked like a man with with his eyes the green card prize. After getting her hair and makeup done, Marysol exits the salon, while her Dwight inspired hairstyle brings back flashbacks of Phaedra’s Southern baby shower. The horror.

Following the airing of the first season, which was met with controversy and so-so ratings, the big question has remained will the Real Housewives of DC be returning for a second season?

Well, that answer is now a strong maybe according to Bravo’s own Andy Cohen. The Crushable website reports that during Andy’s recent appearance on the Live With Regis & Kelly show a little over a week ago, he revealed that Bravo would like the DC Housewives to come back for a second season but under one condition – that is with Michaele Salahi returning to the show. Wowzers!

According to Crushable, Andy admitted Bravo was “in negotiations” to bring back Real Housewives of DC but added that while the network wants Michaele back on the show, the other four housewives do not. In fact, they have reportedly banded together and refused to work with her.

Mary Schmidt Amons, Cat Ommaney, Lynda Erkiletian, and Stacie Turner reportedly tried to negotiate as a group, similar to what some of the Real Housewives of New Jersey did when they wanted to get Danielle Staub off the show.

It appears, the question now is does Bravo think the Real Housewives of DC is worth watching without the party crashing and compulsive lying of the Salahis? We can’t help but wonder if the DC Housewives will end up being another Real Housewives of Miami without the Salahis.

Meanwhile, Stacie’s husband Jason Turner recently commented on a previous story we did about Stacie traveling to Nigeria to meet her birth father and family.

In the story, we questioned whether the camera crew pictured with Stacie was from Bravo, and according to Jason, it was not. In the comment, made just two weeks ago, Jason also voiced uncertainty regarding a second season of the show. Part of Jason’s comment below -

“Contrary to popular opinion, we photographed and filmed this trip entirely on our own, since we feel like our (Stacie’s) family story couldn’t be “owned” by anyone but Stacie. So we partnered with Silverbird Group, one of the largest media companies in Africa, who provided a full film crew that chronicled over 30 hours of high def footage as we visited Lagos, Abuja, the Nigerian capital, as well as Owerri, which is in the southeast part of the country, where we met her birth family. As I write this, we don’t know what the future holds as far as a Season 2, but HW or not, we look forward to sharing what is an emotional, beautiful, provocative, intriguing, and super surprising story of one person’s search to discover something deeper about themselves.”

Following a so-so season on Top Chef All Stars, Tiffany Derry was eliminated on the most recent episode of the show.

In a new interview with TV Guide, Tiffany talks getting booted, why she thought her dish was great, and touches on that whole Black Hammer curse. Excerpts are below -

Did you have any feeling that you were getting booted?
Tiffany Derry:
It was such a mixed thing. I didn’t know who it would be. I definitely knew the issue of cold and hot. When they straight-out asked me, “Was it supposed to be cold?” I was like, “No, not cold. Please don’t say it was cold.” At least say it was lukewarm. Sometimes there’s a little exaggeration between cold and warm, so you never really know, but I was like, “No!” And there are other issues [for Richard and Antonia]. When someone says something is raw or undercooked, then it’s like, [the elimination] could be based on a technical issue or a [temperature] issue. You never really know. … I didn’t know how to read the whole thing. I felt like my dish was good. I really enjoyed it and I think I said that. To go home on a dish that you like is better than going home on a dish that you know you could’ve done better on.

After the weather this week and the fire last week, do you think you guys should have the best equipment at your disposal in the finals?
Tiffany:
I don’t know. I think this made it much more interesting. We cook with great tools in our restaurants every day; that’s the norm. To put us outside of our comfort zone with different machines and all of that is kind of cool.

You and Antonia won the Quickfire and then you got eliminated. Do you believe in the Black Hammer curse?
Tiffany:
[Laughs] I know! But see, the Black Hammer is supposed to [strike] when you’re cooking with her, when you’re on the same team. So I don’t know what happened. [It took effect] on the next challenge. You know what’s weird about this challenge too? I was going to make the dish Antonia ended up making. We’re on the same wavelength sometimes. It’s kind of crazy. I was going to do a pan-seared fish and the conch ceviche on the top. My other idea was to wrap the fish in banana leaves and still do the conch ceviche. I found out Mike was doing banana leaves, so I’m like, “Freak!” I was freaking out! Then I heard Antonia describe her dish and I was like, “Oh my God! I’m doing the same dish everyone’s doing!” So [my soup] was the third option.

What are you up to now?
Tiffany:
I am building a restaurant in Dallas. It’s called Private Social. Traveling a little bit, doing a lot of cooking demonstrations.

In other Top Chef news, judge Tom Colicchio and wife Lori Silverbush welcomed baby boy Mateo Lev Colicchio on Tuesday at 12:11PM in New York City.

According to a rep for the couple, both mother and baby are doing well. Mateo is Tom’s third son, as he also has a 19-month old son, Luka Bodhi, with Lori and 17-year-old Dante from a previous relationship.

And finally, it’s one week before the finale and on tonight’s new episode, the three remaining chefs fashion a challenge for their fellow contestants in Season 8′s final Quickfire. Then, they dish up a “last supper” for celebrity chefs Masaharu Morimoto, Wolfgang Puck and Michelle Bernstein. It airs tonight on Bravo at 10/9c.
