During the TCA 2011 Winter Press Tour going on this week, Bravo announced several premiere dates and series renewals on Thursday.

The biggest announcement however came in the form of the widely talked about 6th season of the Real Housewives of Orange County. Bravo confirmed yesterday that it will be returning on Sunday, March 6 at 10pm.

Other big announcements included the return date of Bethenny Frankel’s show Bethenny Ever After (season 2), and the renewals of popular shows The Rachel Zoe Project (season 4), Millionaire Matchmaker (season 5) and Flipping Out (season 5). The recent season finale of Millionaire Matchmaker averaged 2.2 million viewers, the highest ratings ever in the show’s history, so the return is not a surprise.

Additionally, Bravo announced that casting is set to begin on the ninth season of Top Chef and that Top Chef Masters will return later this year for a third season with host Curtis Stone. Other shows renewed include Work of Art: The Next Great Artist. New shows coming this year include Platinum Hit with Kara DioGuardi which will debut this Summer and Rocco’s Dinner Party will air later this year.

A number of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills news to report today and they are all about Camille Camille Camille of course.

First things first, on the 12th episode of the BH Housewives tonight (the finale is next week) airing at 10/9c, Camille begins to detect fissures in her marriage as Kelsey continues his stay in New York. Meanwhile, Taylor puts the focus on her own marital issues. And Kyle’s daughter graduates from college, yet nieces Paris and Nicky Hilton fail to attend the event, upsetting Kyle.

Watch What Happens Live – The guest tonight will be none other than Camille Grammer. Should be good!

Moving on to other news, Camille’s married male BFF Nick Stabile, you know, the one she kisses on the lips, is finally speaking out on his odd relationship with her in a new interview with E! Online. Even more interesting, Nick brought along his wife Tricia for the interview! Tricia defends Nick and Camille’s relationship, blaming it all on Bravo’s editing. Guess Camille’s paychecks really do go a long way.

“If it were edited differently, you’d see her kiss me before or after she kissed Nick because that’s what happens every time,” said Tricia. “All three of us are Italian!” Tricia adds that she’s not bothered by Camille at all and that Camille is one of her “closest friends in Malibu.”

“We’re all really close. Kelsey [Grammer] and I hug and kiss when we see each other,” adds Nick, denying any romance with Camille. “In the moment, I wasn’t thinking ‘How will this be perceived?’ I would never disrespect my wife. I would never disrespect Kelsey and their marriage.” Nick also adds that despite the pending divorce, the Grammers have been great about not putting him or Tricia in the middle.

In a separate article, E! also reports that while Kelsey isn’t speaking to the media about Camille, his closest friends are defending him and they’re all saying Camille over-played the whole being blindsided by the divorce thingy. Not surprising as this is becoming more apparent judging from Camille’s latest interview with Howard Stern on Wednesday. In the interview, Camille admitted she and Kelsey stopped having sex “years ago” because he wasn’t man enough.

“There’s a lot more to the Camille, Kelsey tale than what’s being reported out there,” explains a frustrated friend close to Kelsey. “Their marriage was over years before he met Kayte [Walsh]” dishes the source.

“She was all about money, money, money the entire time they were married,” adds the source. “Kelsey had given up on love. His marriage was just like another business venture, but then he met Kayte and fell for her right away.”

Also in the interview with Howard yesterday, Camille revealed she and Kelsey discussed having an open marriage during the last year of their marriage but ultimately they both agreed not to have one. Though judging by both of their actions, perhaps they missed the memo.

A video preview of tonight’s clip is below -

A week after Life & Style magazine reported Jersey Shore star Ronnie was cheating on his sweetheart Sammi, both UsWeekly and ET are now confirming the on-off couple is once again on the outs.

According to UsWeekly, Ronnie Magro and Sammi Giancola were “barely speaking to each other” during a Jan. 6 appearance on Good Morning America. “They are done,” says a source close to the couple.

Entertainment Weekly also confirms the break-up news, stating that the couple’s private drama became public news on Facebook with Sammi unfriending all of Ronnie’s associates from her page. How long till these two crazy kids get back together?

In other Shore news, it seems Snooki, 23, arguably the most popular star of the show, is getting tired of being “Snooki.” In a new interview with AP, the pint sized MTV star claims she misses her real name Nicole Polizzi.

“I miss my real name,” said Snooki who has earned well over a million from being Snooki. “I miss people calling me Nicole.” Aw, poor Snooki.

Also, airing tonight on MTV is a new episode of the Jersey Shore. On the 2nd episode this season, “Ronnie and Sammi continue to isolate themselves until Ronnie gets fed up and decides to fraternize with the others, leaving Sammi feeling out of the loop.” It airs tonight at 10/9c.

Finally, last week’s premiere of the Jersey Shore brought in amazing ratings for MTV. Just how amazing you ask? Well, the show was viewed by over 8.4 million fans! Making it the most watched series telecast in the history of MTV. Safe to say there will be many more seasons of Jersey Shore to come our way though most likely with a new cast.

The Real Housewives of Atlanta finally filmed their season 3 reunion show on Wednesday after a snow storm forced Bravo to cancel the original Tuesday schedule.

In fact, Andy Cohen’s flight from NYC to Atlanta got cancelled on Monday but he was ultimately able to get a flight to Alabama Monday night and then jetted a private plane to Atlanta on Tuesday. Yes folks, it was that crucial.

The above photo was tweeted by Phaedra Parks with the caption, “@Kandi was looking hot 2day!!!! Gr8 seeing u:-).” And as you can see Kandi Burruss is rocking a longer hair do thanks to hairdresser Derek J. Are you digging Kandi’s new hair style?

Kim Zolciak also tweeted yesterday that she was suppose to rock a darker wig but couldn’t as her new hairstylist Ayana was unable to make her trip to Atlanta. According to Kim, some of the roads in Atlanta were still in bad condition yesterday morning as her car was slipping and sliding all over the place but fret now as Kim made it known she had a driver take her to the reunion taping. Below are some of the tweets made by the Atlanta ladies about the reunion. Andy, Kim and Phaedra were the only ones to tweet about the reunion following the taping yesterday.

Kandi - “we’re taping our reunion special tomorrow.hmmm…They always style us in dresses when really we might need sneakers & sweats! LOL!”

Andy - “OMG would you believe we JUST wrapped the Atlanta reunion. Worth the nightmare to get here, for sure! Hope you r watching Top Chef!!”

Kim - “Reunion was good!! Some ppl just lie lie lie… Truth always surfaces!! :) my baby came and picked me up heading home!! #soblessed”

Phaedra - “I’m so exhausted!!! I’m headed to bed:-) Sweet dreams twitterville!”

Also Kim and Nene went at it on Twitter Monday night with both ladies mostly re-tweeting negative messages about each other from their fans so that probably carried onto the reunion taping. And finally, Sheree Whitfield made her TV acting debut this Tuesday with a small role on BET’s The Game. Sheree appeared on screen for only a few seconds, playing herself.

Sheree tweeted that she auditioned for a slighly bigger role and got it but the show’s producers had a changed of heart when she got there to film. “Yep, I auditioned and got the role of Brittany but when I got there they changed it up a bit!,” she tweeted.

Two more photos form the Altanta reunion below. Andy tweeted the first photo of he and Kim under the caption “@kimzolciak and I are sharing beauty tips. Seriously. #ReunionMustGoOn.” Kandi’s hairstylist tweeted the second photo of her. Bravo has yet to announce the airing date but it will likely be in 3 weeks.

Holly Madison is once again speaking out about her ex Hugh Hefner’s recent engagement and unlike the last time she spoke, she is not mincing her words this go around.

In a new interview with Life & Style magazine, Holly, 31, pretty much slams Hef’s new fiance, 24-year-old Crystal Harris. According to Holly, Hef can “do better than Crystal,” and she even goes on to warn Hef to reconsider his decision.

“I’d like to see Hef settle down,” Holly tells Life & Style. “I just want it to be with the right person, and I feel like he’s making a hasty decision. I’m not sure Crystal is the best thing for him.”

But it didn’t end there. “Crystal hasn’t been around very long — she’s a mysterious character,” says Holly. “No one knows much about her. Plus, she’s very young, probably too young to settle down. I’ve seen a lot of girls try to date Hef, and some have ulterior motives. I don’t think it would be a bad idea for him to get to know her a little better. I think it’s possible Crystal could break Hef’s heart. They could end up divorcing, and she could take half his money.”

Holly goes on to add that she just wants Hef to be happy when it’s all said and done. “I’m not jealous that he’d marry someone else. I just don’t want it to be a girl who’s using him to start her career,” she adds. “Basically, I think he could do better than Crystal.”

Oh yeah, season two of Holly’s World premieres Jan. 23 on E!

TELL US – THOUGHTS ON HOLLY’S LATEST COMMENTS?

It seems Camille Grammer has had a change of heart when it comes to wanting an amicable and peaceful divorce as the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star went on the Howard Stern Show this morning and strongly insinuated her estranged husband is a cross dresser that might be gay.

During the interview, Howard asked Camille about her sex life with Kelsey Grammer and she stated they stopped having sex “years ago.”  Howard then relayed to her that there are rumors she put out there that “Kelsey’s a total freak.” Camille replied: “Bingo! After three years, I said, ’Enough. You need to be a man for me. I need to be with a man.’ That’s all I can say. I’ll leave it at that.”

Oh but it didn’t end there as Camille then went on to insinuate that not only does Kelsey like to cross dress but that he might also be gay.  “Let’s put it this way. He’s in the perfect play. Like, when I knew that he got [a role in] La Cage Aux Folles, I was like, ‘Ok, I’m going to lose him.’ But I thought it was going to be to one of his back-up dancers. I didn’t think it was going to be to another woman,” said Camille.

Howard then asked her point blank if she thought Kelsey was gay. She replied, “I think he’s straight. There were times when I didn’t throughout our marriage because I couldn’t understand why he couldn’t physically be with me.”

Wowzers. Other excerpts from Camille’s interview below -

Camille On When She First Started Dating Kelsey -  “When I met him, yeah, he was a mess.” While a mess, Kelsey had game: “He’s very charming when you first meet him…he swept me off my feet.” But the charm eventually wore off: “He was boring on the weekends. I always wanted to do something and he just wanted lay around the house and watch Fox TV. Fox News, yeah.”

On Whether Or Not She Plans To Return For Another Season -  Camille has her doubts. “We haven’t made that decision yet. Would you stay on a show that did that to you? I mean, c’mon. They demonize me.”

And finally, TMZ adds that this isn’t the first time Camille has insinuated or told others that Kelsey likes to cross dress. Sources tell TMZ Camille made the same claims to some of her cast members after Kelsey dumped her.

Kelsey’s rep tells TMZ, “While it is not clear why Camille Grammer continues making public statements about her marriage to Kelsey, it is crystal clear that Kelsey will continue not responding, regardless of content.”

Just a few weeks following the finale of season 21, CBS is now unveiling the cast of the all new 22nd season of Survivor: Redemption Island, which will reportedly include two former all-stars.

The battle begins this season in Nicaragua where the 18 castaways will be divided into two Tribes of nine: the Ometepe Tribe and the Zapatera Tribe. The tribes are comprised of individuals from all different backgrounds with the same ultimate goal: to be the Sole Survivor. While 16 of the contestants are new to the competition, two are former castaways who will be given another chance to compete for the million dollar prize and one last shot at redemption.

CBS has released the names of 16 out of the 18 castaways with the promise to reveal the final 2 contestants at the end of this week. It is heavily rumored that those two remaining contestants are none other than rivals Russell Hantz and Rob Mariano. Their return would definitely make for an interesting season.

As we have previously reported, this season of Survivor will be a bit different thanks to some new rules. In fact, host Jeff Probst explained the rule changes two weeks ago. The biggest change being that eliminated contestants do not leave the game but instead go instead to the “Redemption Island,” where he or she will face off against the next person voted off in a duel.

The loser goes home with the duel winner going on to face the next arrival at Redemption Island until one person is left standing. That individual will get a chance to return to the game. The other rule change is that producers will get to decide whether or not people who quit the game during the jury stage will get to stay and vote for a winner.

The new season of Survivor premieres February 16 at 8/7c on CBS. The cast photos and bios below -

UPDATE – CBS has now confirmed that the remaining two castaways are returning vets Rob Mariano and Russell Hantz.

“Having never been awarded the title of Sole Survivor, Hantz and Mariano return to compete for the $1 million prize and one last shot at redemption,” CBS said in a statement. “They will each join a separate tribe of all new castaways at the start of the game, but it is the tribe who will ultimately decide if they will welcome the knowledge of an experienced veteran, or view these former castaways as a threat.”

It seems Teresa Giudice, star of the Real Housewives of New Jersey who is mostly known for flipping a table and filing bankruptcy, does not want her daughters to turn out like her other Jersey counterparts.

In a brief interview with Popeater, Teresa reveals she doesn’t want any of her four daughters to end up like the Jersey Shore kids aka Snooki.

The reasons? Teresa states she hears the girls on the MTV hit show “sleep around” a lot. “No, I don’t want them to act like the Jersey Shore kids,” said Teresa. “I hear that they sleep around. I don’t want my daughters sleeping around.”

And when it comes to the biggest misconception about her, Teresa reveals — “I’m really a business woman. I’m a mom, wife and business woman.”

The interview took place following Teresa’s sold-out speaking engagement at The Learning Annex in NYC this week, titled “An Evening With Teresa Giudice.” If you recall, the seminar which cost $44.95 per person, was originally titled “How to Have It All,” but was ultimately given a new title after much snickering from fans of the show who wondered if having it all included bankruptcy and being investigated for fraud.

According to NorthJersey.com, below are some of the highlights of Teresa’s seminar -

  • Before she had her oldest daughter, 10-year-old Gia, and became a “housewife,” Teresa revealed she worked for Macy’s as an assistant buyer, then associate buyer, then became a sales rep for 9 West and Calvin Klein handbags.
  • Her second cookbook, “Fabulicious!” is due out May 4.
  • She regrets the commercial she did for Sizzle Tan, calling it “a terrible mistake,” adding that Brad Pitt did a chicken commercial early on.
  • When the cameras aren’t rolling, the cast member she hangs with the most is Jacqueline Laurita.
  • Teresa doesn’t want any more children, but husband Joe wants one more. “I really want to get my tubes tied. Maybe next season.”

Teresa’s second cookbook coming out in May indicates the 3rd season of the NJ housewives will be airing in May. And when it came to her financial and legal woes with hubby Joe Giudice, Teresa didn’t really want to talk about it instead stating “there’s always going to be haters out there.”
