Bachelor insider Reality Steve broke the news this morning that Emily, 25, has officially signed on for the ABC hit show.
The single mother of 6-year-old Ricki first captured the heart of fans with her tragic story of how she lost her fiancé and father of her daughter, race car driver Ricky Hendrick, in a plane crash back in 2004 while she was pregnant.
Things appeared to be looking up for Emily after Brad Womack picked her on his Bachelor season and proposed. However, like every other Bachelor relationship that came before them, their relationship ultimately failed.
There’s no word yet on when ABC plans to make the official announcement though it will likely be after Ben Flajnik’sBachelor season ends. Filming on Emily’s Bachelorette season will reportedly begin in March.
Reality Steve also adds that the likely selling point for Emily, who had stated in the past that she wasn’t interested in doing the show, might be the fact that ABC has agreed to film the new season in her hometown of Charlotte, North Carolina. This is a first and has never been done before in the history of the Bachelorette.
I’m starting to think where the stars of Teen Mom are concerned no news is good news, because nearly every time there is news it’s something a little sad.
In the latest, Jenelle Evans, the drama wrought star of Teen Mom 2 was arrested in North Carolina on Tuesday for allegedly making harassing phone calls and threatening her former roommate, Hannah Inman. Hannah is the same ex-roommate who is now dating her ex-boss James Duffy who recently leaked wild photos of Jenelle drinking and making out with her new roommate.
According to TMZ, Jenelle, 20, was booked into the Brunswick County Jail and was released on $1,000 bond, which luckily her MTV salary affords her the luxury of paying. This is not the first arrest for Jenelle who is currently on probation for a fight with other girl over ex-boyfriend and fellow jail bird Kieffer Delp.
Violating her probation could put Jenelle in jeopardy legally and she could be looking at jail time for her latest inability to control her temper. Jenelle is obviously not taking this seriously as shortly after her release she tweeted: “I’m free as a biiirrrrddddd :D” although she claims she was crying the entire time.
“She was arrested yesterday afternoon for communicating threats and harassing phone calls to Hannah,” Jenelle’s attorney Dustin Sullivan tells HollywoodLife. “Hannah was the roommate of Mr.James Duffy [Jenelle’s former boss]. Jenelle pressed charges on Duffy on Saturday, Jan. 7, for cyberstalking and communicating threats.”
Jenelle also took to her Facebook page to post the following message:
“Yes I was arrested again. It’s okay, Hannah’s just calling her own bluffs. How can I harass u with phone calls when u clearly don’t own a cell phone? I’ve dropped this argument weeks ago. Haven’t been paying attention to u but u have the balls to tell yr little ‘fans’.. ‘imma fu*cking kill that bitch’ ?! How’s threatening who here ?! Lmao she’s mad cuz I took out charges first on Duffy for cyber stalking. She claims that she move out becuz I said I would ‘eventually kill her’ when clearly her old phone has texts that states ‘look I’m moving out to yr house Duffy so we can move to new jersey so I can get famous for my singing’. Yes u set me up and yes u will go down. CAN’T WAIT FOR COURT!”
Maybe she could be cell mates with Amber Portwood currently hanging out behind bars. Amber recently sent a letter to her brother from jail in which she admitted she is “really scared” about the prospect of ending up in prison. TMZ received a copy of that letter and you can view it in its entirety below save for the blacked out parts.
“I don’t think I’ll ever take this sh-t for granted,” Amber wrote. “I’m really scared I’m going to prison. I don’t know what I’ll do.”
Being in jail has obviously given Amber a lot of time to examine her priorities: “All I think about is Leah and how she needs a role model. If I can get out, I can really show her what a good mother is.” Hopefully this will be second (or fifth) chance Amber needs to really make a difference in her life — if not for herself than definitely for her daughter.
“I don’t want people thinking I’m this crazy bitch,” Amber exclaimed. “I am a good person and I pray that I can change my life!” Amber also insists that despite what the judge thinks she is not a danger to society, claiming, “I wouldn’t hurt anyone!”
Hopefully Amber’s situation can also be a wake-up call to Jenelle. Just because you are on a reality show does not mean you are above the law, ladies!

Some positive, non-violent reality news to report on today which is always nice! After undergoing a double mastectomy over three weeks ago, Giuliana Rancic is reporting that she’s “doing better than I anticipated in recovery.” In fact, the star of Giuliana and Bill is claiming that her battle with breast cancer has actually improved her quality of life. That’s some attitude — we should all take note!
Not surprisingly, she’s already back to work and back to her life… just a better life, she says. Speaking to PEOPLE.com while at a Television Critics Association press tour luncheon this past weekend, Giuilana revealed, “I never thought my marriage could be stronger, or I could be closer to [my husband Apprentice winner] Bill [Rancic].” The E! host reveals that the frightening ordeal has been a positive life changer “in so many ways.”
Discussing Bill and her religious views, Giuliana shares, “We go to church every Sunday. And we did before, but it never meant as much as it does now.” She continues, “We prayed on our own, but now we prayed together and you’ll never know how much that means until you do it. Bill and I have changed our lives in that one way.”
Giuliana reveals that she hasn’t had a moment’s pause about her recent surgery which removed both of her breasts — nor should she. It greatly improved her future health. She states, “The surgery brought my risks down 95 to 100 percent. If I had a lumpectomy, I would have early estrogen menopause for at least two years, and I want to have children.”
Using the humor she’s known for both on her show and on the red carpet, Giuliana dishes, “I didn’t give two sh––s about my breasts. I didn’t care that at the Golden Globes, I wouldn’t be able to show cleavage.” Her chest size doesn’t define her career.
She recalls, “A lot of people were shocked. They said, ‘Are you sure you want to do this? Think about the life you lead and the fabulous dresses and that’s part of your job. It could put your job in jeopardy.’ And I thought, if I ever have a job that is defined by my breasts and some gorgeous gown then I’m in the wrong business.”
And honestly, who needs cleavage when they have a loving, supportive husband by their side every step of the way through the good, the bad and the ugly. “It breaks my heart that a lot of women don’t have a supportive husband,” Giuliana tells the magazine. She gushes, “Bill’s a saint, and the hottest male nurse ever. He’s very protective and it’s almost as hard for him as it was for me.”
I am so happy to see that Giuliana made the health decision that she felt was best for her, regardless of stigmas, criticism or potential insecurities. I think Bill and her are a wonderful public example for the millions of women and men who face the devastation of breast cancer on a daily basis. Do I think she’s a hero? Yes. But I also think all the other women who have been in her shoes without the recognition are as well. I applaud her for using the platform she’s been blessed with to spread awareness about an all too common epidemic.

CAN YOU BELIEVE GIULIANA’S ALREADY BACK AT WORK AFTER HER SURGERY? WHAT DO YOU THINK OF HER INTERVIEW?
Last night’s episode of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills was fun except for the KimKyle-nanigans – that’s shenanigans by Kim and Kyle, if you can’t decipher the lingo. Kim, in addition to looking a hot mess and appearing hung over the entire trip also had Kyle taking every opportunity to argue with her; those two again managed to be completely inconsiderate to everyone, but luckily it ruined only Kyle’s good time.
Things start out on a high note with Adrienne and Paul hiking and holding hands. Double take! I love Paul in middle-aged tourist gear. All he needs is a fannypack to go with Adrienne’s “Visit The Palms, I need the money!” visor.
Kim finally arrives in Lanai! As for being late, “Oops” is all she has to say for herself. Kim is so excited to finally be there and unluckily gets placed in a room right next to Kyle. A frantic Kyle hears Kim’s voice and ignores Mauricio and margaritas(!) to eavesdrop on Kim. In the talking head, Kim states: “I chose to not *coke sniff* to talk to Kyle.” Nice.

For reasons that are hard to comprehend, she is still being featured in the press and giving interviews holding on to her very last threads of relevance by slamming her former co-workers at every opportunity.
Radar features a piece with several choice quotes from Jill, where she insists that the show is nothing without her: “Now that I’m not there, who is going to hold court this season? None of the new women knew each other before they were cast. I know if I were there, I could make people feel comfortable.”
If by making people feel comfortable, you mean loudly picking fights at every opportunity, then sure, Jill, you could have made rumored new cast members Carole Radziwill,Heather Thomson andAviva Drescherfeel right at home in the Real Housewives family!
Since she apparently ran out of things to say about her feud with former BFF Bethenny Frankel, Jill set her sights on slamming former frenemy Ramona Singer.
“No one cares about Ramona Singer anymore,” Jill rants about her former costar. “I’ve heard the new cast members are not happy with her. Ramona planted that ridiculous story about me borrowing clothes from Saks Fifth Avenue and returning them worn. But I’m having a huge party there in February, so Ramona is the one who looks like the idiot.”
While we are sure *someone* cares about Ramona, there is probably some truth to the statement that Ramona is fighting with the other ladies. Ramona, as we all remember, has had a fight with all of her cast mates at one point or another.
Not one to take anything sitting down (or without a glass of wine), Ramona tells Wetpaint Entertainment that, “Jill is delusional. And needs a reality check — no pun intended.”
Delusional or not, Jill is doing just fine for herself these days, proudly showing off a $19,000 ring once worn by Elizabeth Taylor to the TMZ cameras last week that husband Bawby Zarin gifted her for their 11th wedding anniversary. While Jill may say she’s happy going back to being just another New York wife, we think she misses the cameras much more often than she will ever admit to.
A picture of Jill’s $19K ring is below! The NY Daily News is now reporting that Jill’s pricey purchase has inspired her to start her own jewelry line, which will debut in time for Valentine’s Day. How convenient.
After last week’s romantic (?) proposal, Love & Hip Hop resumed with some slight back story behind Jim Jones’ decision to head to Miami. There is a video montage of the pair from season one intermixed with Jim preparing to pop the question.
As he waxes poetic in the background about what it means to have Chrissy as a lady and confidante, why she is perfect for him, and what all they’ve been through, we watch him shower (he totes has a body under those baggy clothes!), profess his love for Chrissy in the steamy mirror and contemplate choosing the perfect ring. Oh VH1, how cheesy lovely.
After Chrissy says yes, it turns out the entire Miami trip was a set-up by Jim. He has all her friends and family at the restaurant, and apparently Emily, Teairra, and Olivia were in on the plan as well. I clearly didn’t give Jim enough credit. That was a pretty sweet proposal. In her interview, Chrissy cries about how wonderful it feels to be a Jones, compliments crizazy Mama Jones (love!) for raising such a wonderful son and ends with a tearful, “Even if we never get married… I will always have love for Jim in my f*&^ing heart.” And here I was thinking that Jim was the more romantic out of the two. Chrissy is like a female Shakespeare!

So why did Evelyn have a change of heart? Well, apparently Chad had to do a lot of begging. Sources tell TMZ that Chad broke down last week and apologized. Chad reportedly told Evelyn he would do whatever it took to win her back and even suggested couple’s counseling for the two.
Evelyn is said to have agreed and the couple are now seeking help to work out their trust issues. So wait, does this mean Chad is pretty much acknowledging that he cheated? Because if he didn’t cheat, why would he be groveling and suggesting counseling???
Anyhoo, Evelyn also spoke out through her rep, telling TMZ: “The strain from both our busy schedules started to take a serious toll on our relationship. Yet after spending some much needed quality time together, Chad and I are in a good space.”
Okay then. Meanwhile, Evelyn’s costar Tami Romanposted a topless photo of herself this week on her Facebook page. The reason? It’s an anti-fur ad for PETA even though she’s not officially associated with PETA. Tami wrote: “Even though this ad was not done in affiliation with PETA, I hope to have the opportunity to work with them to further the cause of animal rights in the future.”
The mother of three tweeted bikini photos of her new slimmer body in a sexy leopard print Victoria’s Secret bathing suit! “Ok y’all this is the the winner for my St. Barths trip,” wrote Imani. The bikini photos of Imani are below!

Attention eligible bachelors, Kate Gosselin is still single and available!
Weeks after a report stated the formerKate Plus 8 star had a new beau in her life, Kate is now denying she is seeing anyone.
Talking to OK! magazine, Kate, 36, dismisses the gossip as “fabricated and totally false.” She stressed: “Unless my running shoes, kitchen utensils or wrapping paper are considered ‘dates,’ I have not been on any.” Aww poor Katie! At least she has her bodyguard Steve Neild to err, you know, “protect” her!
The mother of eight is, however, keeping her chin up as she reflects on the year 2011 and reveals her resolutions for the New Year in her latest blog for Couponcabin.com.
“The main thing that the end of a year causes me to do is to reflect on what I’ve learned that year,” wrote Kate. “The year of 2011 for me was a year of gaining complete independence, and learning to look for solutions in every situation instead of focusing on the problems.”
“I don’t typically make New Year’s resolutions because I’m not one to make drastic changes just for the sake of making them or just because the calendar starts over,” blogged Kate before going on to share her super exciting resolutions! And no, stop being the b-word wasn’t one of them! “However, I do aim for certain things as I organize and prioritize my life all year long. For example, I make goals to fix or finish certain projects around the house, goals for giving the kids certain life experiences and fitness and career goals for myself.”
Kate reflects more on what she learned in the last year: “I also learned to step back and survey the situation before acting on something. For the most part, this has worked and overall I feel more peaceful and more confident that I can handle whatever life throws at me. I’ve also noticed my kids are becoming problem solvers, too, which is very encouraging!”
She adds, “I’ve always said that I don’t live apologetically; I live passionately! A great way to do that is to learn from the past and make it better in the future.”
And finally, the mom of eight also recently revealed she wants back on TV her own fitness show!
Last weekend, Kate took to her Twitter page to let fans know that her own fitness show would be a dream come true! “A fitness show would be a dream come true,” tweeted Kate, who recently ran a marathon. “Not for me only but a way to reach ALL moms who desire fitness but don’t know how!”
No word yet on whether or not her plus 8 would make cameos on the said fitness show.
