The Bachelor finalist Emily Maynard graces the latest cover of In Touch magazine under the heading “Tricked By Emily’s Lies” as the mag goes on to trash the Bachelor contestant.

According to In Touch, Emily, 24, may not be the person she portrays herself to be. One of the sources of this story is Cori Kurek, who was briefly engaged to the dead NASCAR driver Ricky Hendrick before Emily. In fact, Cori tells In Touch she thinks that Emily and Ricky were never actually engaged.

“After Ricky died and she found out she was pregnant, Emily wanted to have lunch with me, because she didn’t know him that well,” shares Cori, who was engaged to Ricky from 2002 to 2003. Cori gave back Ricky’s ring . “I’m amazed at the details Emily excludes about her background,” says Cori of Emily’s portrayal on the show.

Cori claims that after Ricky died in 2004 and his family became aware of Emily’s pregnancy (she found out a week after his death), Ricky’s family decided to give Emily Cori’s engagement ring to spare themselves the embarrassment that she had become pregnant out of wedlock, and to make it appear that wedding plans were on the horizon at the time of Ricky’s sudden death.

“They took Ricky’s ex-fiancée’s ring and put it on Emily’s finger,” another source explains, adding that Emily was seen wearing the $100,000 sparkler in the delivery room. “I think it was a staged, fake engagement.”

While Emily has described Ricky as her childhood sweetheart, Cori insists, “Ricky and I were together for a very long time and as far as I know, there was never any Emily in his life.”

And when it comes to that whole Nascar date with Brad on the show, another source alleges it was all an act. The reason? Apparently since Ricky’s death, Emily has dated several other NASCAR drivers — and would hang out at the track every Saturday.

“Everybody knows Emily was spending almost every Saturday at the racetrack,” one insider says. “It’s not an emotional place for her. I don’t get it.” It has been reported that Emily briefly dated Nascar star Dale Earnhardt Jr back in 2006.

As for Cori’s claims that Emily did not know Ricky well, the Twirlit website disputes that as there are numerous photos of the two together at different points in time. Some of those are posted below.

They’re officially back! The Real Housewives of Orange County, aka the first blondes ladies of Bravo housewives, return tonight for their sixth season.

And judging from the previews, the drama is still alive and well amongst some of the cast members. In fact, Gretchen Rossi and Tamra Barney pickup their feud from seasons past tonight when they go at it during a get together after Gretchen refers to Tamra as an “evil bitch.”

Meanwhile, it seems new “housewife” Fernanda Rocha, 34, might be getting the Jennifer Gilbert treatment this season. Who is Jennifer Gilbert you ask? Well, Jennifer was cast to be a housewife on the Real Housewives of NYC last season, only to get the shaft during the season, by being demoted to an extra. Fernanda, who is openly bisexual, is noticeably absent from the official cast photo above, though she does appear in another one.

And when Vicky Gunvalson was asked about Fernanda, this is what Vicky had to say -  “ [Fernanda]‘s not really one of the Housewives. She’s somebody that comes in and socializes with us, but I don’t really know how we’re labeling Fernanda this year. We’ve haven’t really been told. I know her very little still. I don’t work out with her. I don’t socialize with her. She seems like a sweet girl.”

And finally, Alexis Bellino revealed in a recent interview with the E! network that her husband Jim Bellino quit the show. Reason? Jim apparently felt Bravo gave him a “jerk” edit last season. “He’s pretty much against the show,” Alexis revealed. “All they want to do is rip him apart.”

Watch What Happens Live – OC Housewives Tamra Barney and Vicki Gunvalson will be joining Andy Cohen in the Bravo clubhouse tonight.

The Real Housewives of Orange Country premieres at 10 p.m. (EST) on Bravo. Below is a preview clip -

Celebrity Apprentice returns tonight for its fourth season with what is being called the most dramatic cast to date.

While the show boasts 16 “celebrities” this season, Mr. Donald Trump can thank one particular castmember in general who seems to be bringing most of the drama based on the show’s previews.

Bravo housewife Nene Leakes, known for running her mouth speaking her mind on the Real Housewives of Atlanta, is taking her drama schtick to the NBC network, with Star Jones playing the role of Kim Zolciak.

Nene has spent the past couple of weeks slamming Star in the press, you know, calling her “special” and stating she “wouldn’t spit on Star if she was on fire.” Star on the other hand has appeared to take the high road in the feud, stating in a recent interview that she did not want to contribute to the stereotype of the “bombastic black woman.”

Nene however sees things differently. “I’m not surprised that Star used the ‘black women need to get along. Oh, she’s just being a black woman being mad or yelling or whatever,’” Nene tells Zap2It in a recent interview. “She has no fault in this. So, let’s just say that. You can not argue by yourself.” Nene goes on to refer to Star as “phony,” adding, “I’m like this, if you are a b***h, own it. Be a b***h 24 hours, own that. Be that.”

So what is Nene’s strategy on Celebrity Apprentice you ask? “Going into ‘Celebrity Apprentice,’ I didn’t have any strategies,” admits Nene. “I was a little scared going there. I saw Donald and I thought that he was scary. You know, mean-mugging you and not really smiling. So, I was really scared of that. I just went in, thinking to myself that I’m just here to fight for my charity and I don’t want to be voted off first. That’s all I thought.”

Moving on to tonight’s season premiere — the “sixteen celebrities engage in business-themed battles when Donald Trump’s competition series begins its 11th season. In the opener, the stars must manage a New York City pizzeria.” The celebrities include La Toya Jackson, Lisa Rinna, Richard Hatch, Marlee Matlin, Dionne Warwick, Gary Busey, David Cassidy, Lil Jon, Meat Loaf and Mark McGrath.

It all ends tonight, well this season of Basketball Wives that is, as the ladies go out with a bang!

The brewing Evelyn Lozada vs Tami Roman feud reaches a boiling point tonight as things get physical between the two ladies. The reason? Evelyn admits to having slept with Tami’s ex-husband Kenny Anderson. Wowzers!

Tami loses it as she believes the sexy times between Evelyn and Kenny occurred while she was still married to Kenny. Evelyn also travels to Cincinnati to visit Chad Ochocinco. A preview clip of the finale episode is below.

Reunion – Yes, there will be a reunion for the show, and it will be a two part series with part 1 airing next Sunday.

And finally, weeks after Shaunie O’Neal revealed the plan to replace Royce Reed on the show’s third season, TMZ is reporting that Allison Mathis, baby mama to NBA player Chris Bosh, will be asked to join the cast. TMZ also speculates that Allison will likely be replacing Royce.

The finale episode airs tonight on VH1 at 8/7c.

Also, premiering tonight on VH1 is new series Love & Hip Hop, a new docu-soap series that follows the lives of four women. The cast includes Chrissy Lampkin – long term girlfriend of rapper Jim Jones, Somaya Reece - model/rapper, Emily Bustamante – stylist & baby mama of rapper Fabolous, Olivia Longott – R&B singer, plus Mashonda Tifrere – ex-wife of producer Swizz Beatz.

Mashonda will have a smaller role on the show a la Shaunie on the first season of Basketball Wives. A cast photo and season trailer is also below.

In not so surprising news, Real Housewives of Miami star Alexia Echevarria is now in hot water over the comments she made on a recent episode of the show.

If you recall, the self proclaimed Cuban Barbie managed to diss the entire city of Hialeah – population 250,000 – when she referred to them as a “lower” class of people who purchase her Venue magazine as a means to live vicariously through the socialites portrayed in her mag, which caters to Hispanics.

The Miami Herald reports the folks of Hialeah are none too pleased with Alexia’s comments, especially considering the fact that her husband Herman Echevarria, is a former Hialeah City Council president and former chairman of the Hialeah Chamber of Commerce and Industries.

Longtime resident, sixth-grade science teacher and former political hopeful Phil Secada, 56, told the Herald that Alexia’s comment was uncalled for. “We got good people,” Secada said. “I can’t think of a better place to live than Hialeah. I have been to all 50 states except three. I love Hialeah.”

Society writer and former Herald columnist Daisy Olivera called Alexia’s comment a classic “case of ‘open mouth, insert Louboutin.’” Nobody “with any semblance of class or humility call anyone else ‘lower persons,’ especially not your own, hard-working people,” wrote Olivera blasting Alexia. Ouch.

Alexia has since apologized for her comments, stating: “I admire and respect the people of Hialeah; in fact my husband is a product of Hialeah.”

In other MIA news, Elsa Patton, darling mother to Miami housewife Marysol Patton, continues to be a hot topic, mainly for her appearance. In fact, our site got a ton of searches for Elsa this week, with most having to do with Elsa’s face, and many wanting to know what she had done, or what she used to look like.

Well good news, as we now have a before photo of Elsa, and she was actually not too shabby looking. That before photo is below -

Buckle up your seat-belts as Nene Leakes, star of the Real Housewives of Atlanta, graces the latest cover of Rolling Out magazine and she doesn’t hold back when it comes to dishing on some hot topics.

In the mag, Nene responds to Sweetie Hughes recent comments in which she stated Nene was ruining her life. Nene also talks about the Donald, her impending divorce, dating, her experience on the upcoming Celebrity Apprentice and her thoughts on returning for the 4th season of the RHOA.

Excerpts from Nene’s interview below -

ON SWEETIE: “Sweetie is not even a housewife, nor is she a celebrity. I said on the show that Kim was treating her like a slave, and that was my opinion. As a black woman, [if you] allow any woman of any ethnicity to say to you, ‘You black b—-, go and get my cigarettes,’ either you are a slave or you have a problem. And the Free Sweetie campaign had nothing to do with me. Rickey Smiley is a comedian and he did that [as] a complete joke, and people are just laughing about it, and Sweetie is taking it seriously.” Nene then delivers a verbal backhand: “I’m not ruining her life. What kind of life does she have anyway?”

ON HER PENDING DIVORCE: “[When] going through a divorce, you need to be around people who love you and care for you, and there were times that I really didn’t want to talk to people, just because I was failing in that area. I don’t think it’s anything that I did. It’s just after 14 years, we just grew apart.”

ON DATING: Nene reveals she’s now back on the market and looking for Mr. Right. She wants a man who is “confident in who he is, and stays in his lane and not over here in mine,” she says. “He has to be spiritual, he has to have swagger, and it doesn’t matter if he’s black or white.” Mr. Right must also have his own money. “I’m not in it for the money, but, if I date a man he has to have his own money. I think it’s only fair,” she states. “If I’m out here making money, what in the hell am I going to do with a guy who’s not making money? Like, that’s not even cool. I don’t want to take care of a guy.”

ON CELEBRITY APPRENTICE: Nene reveals her much anticipated appearance on “Celebrity Apprentice,” will be nothing like what you’ve seen of her on Real Housewives of Atlanta. “Celebrity Apprentice wasn’t a great experience for me; it was a very hard show to do. We shot the show in literally 45 days. It’s a big show with 16 celebrities (you have eight guys and eight girls), as opposed to working with five. The hours are bananas; you work six days a week, and you rise at 4 a.m. and you get in at midnight. The earliest was 10 p.m.; but sometimes it was 1 a.m.”

ON DONALD TRUMP: Working with Donald Trump was great, however. “Donald is great; he’s very real in his own type of way. He’s not the easiest person to get to know right away,” NeNe recalls. “It takes some time to get to know him. I found him very cool, and I must say he really likes me. You know he likes women who are really tall. And he’s had some brown sugar.” She’s also open to dating the married Donald. “Yeah, I would date Donald Trump … let’s hook it up. I met some really important people through Mr. Trump, he has that swagger.”

ON RETURNING TO REAL HOUSE WIVES OF ATLANTA: “I can’t say today that I want to be a housewife next season, I don’t know that. Maybe a month from now, I will feel different. I want to have the opportunity to talk to the producers to see where we can go as far as the editing, and as you know, we don’t have any control over that, we just shoot the show and they show what they want to show.”

Days after announcing the celebrity-star pairings, ABC has now unveiled the official cast photos of Dancing With The Stars season 12.

Above is a photo of Playboy Playmate and E! reality star Kendra Wilkinson, who has been paired up with Louis van Amstel. According to numerous reports, Kendra, 25, is the favorite to win the show.

Meanwhile, 60-year-old actress Kirstie Alley is hoping to use the show as a weight loss vehicle. “I’ve lost 60 pounds, and I have 30 or 40 more to go,” the former Jenny Craig spokesperson told US Magazine this week. “And I think with this strenuous, rigorous dance schedule, I think it’s going to work. It’s exciting.”

That should no problem for Kirstie, who is paired with hotness/tough hard-ass teacher Maksim Chmerkovskiy . The 12th season of Dancing With The Stars will officially kick off on March 21.

While Camille Grammer has remained relatively quiet about her ex-husband Kelsey Grammer’s latest wedding (that is since the wedding took place), her costar Lisa Vanderpump is now speaking out on her behalf, revealing Camille is upset about the whole thing.

“She was very upset,” Lisa told E! News adding that she spoke to Camille on Wednesday. “It’s public, it’s humiliating, and she’s very vulnerable. It’s very upsetting.” Lisa goes on to state that Camille “will always have a love there” for Kelsey, but that her friend is “definitely not” dating anyone new.

So should we expect Camille to return for a second season of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills? (The most recent report has her quitting the show) Lisa is uncertain. “I can’t say definitely, because it’s been tricky the past few weeks with a lot of feelings running high with what went down with Camille and her divorce,” explained Lisa. “My perception is that it worked so if it’s not broken why fix it? We would like it to stay the same but we’re still working it out.”

In other BH news, it seems Kyle Richards is now certain she wants to have more kids. “I would love to have 10 kids! But obviously I can’t, so I would love to have one more. We’ll see if it’s in the cards. If God’s going to grant my wish,” she revealed to RadarOnline

“Last night my husband did say to me ‘we need one more.’ So you never know,” added Kyle. “Some days I think you know I can handle this… life gets overwhelming but women, we’re multi-taskers. I think I can handle it.”

And finally, just weeks after revealing uncertainty about returning for a second season, it seems Taylor Armstrong is more open to the idea now via a new interview with RadarOnline.

Taylor reveals there’s still more in store for the show: “I do think there are stories that are left to be told and the relationships are changing, some of our friendships are deepening and we’re getting to know each other better.” She adds, “Things are changing, our kids are getting older, our relationships are changing, our friendships, our marriages, our work lives, the changes that occur in life.”

UPDATE – The story was all set to be published, that is until a new report by E! news came out moments ago. According to the story, Camille is still planning to return to the show. So for the time being, we will stop with the Camille is/isn’t returning stories until an official announcement from either Camille or Bravo. The E! story also adds that Camille is “dating again and getting on with her life,” a contradiction to what Lisa stated above.
