Two days following the lackluster premiere episode of The Bachelor season 15 featuring Brad Womack, it seems a new controversy is brewing.

The “controversy” involves the slap heard around the world. While Brad was meeting his 30 bachelorettes, one of the ladies, Chantal O’Brien, decided to give him what appeared to be a playful slap on behalf of all the scorned women in America. Chantal was referring Brad’s actions during his previous season of the Bachelor during which he dumped both of his final two picks.

TMZ is now raising the question of whether or not Chantal should be prosecuted for the slap. “If Amber Portwood gets prosecuted for beating on her boyfriend, what’s the difference?” asks TMZ.

Brad however tells the blog he sees no issue with Chantal’s actions. “I think what Chantal did was a light-hearted gesture which I took as such. I do not condone violence in any relationship, nor would I keep someone around who I felt truly wished to do me harm,” said Brad.

Famed attorney Gloria Allred also agrees with Brad as she tells TMZ Chantal should not be prosecuted as the slap was an isolated instance with no significant injuries.

According to a TMZ poll, 67% polled believe the slap was innocent with the other 33% thinking it was criminal. Interesting.

Despite the recent revelation that she earned a whopping $140,000 for a six-month contract with MTV, it seems Teen Mom star Amber Portwood is having second thoughts about being a ‘Teen Mom.’

Amber graces the latest cover of Life & Style magazine under the heading ‘Being a Teen Mom Ruined My Life.’ In an exclusive interview with the mag, Amber, 20, who was recently arrested and released from jail, expresses her fear over not wanting to go back to jail again.

“I just can’t even imagine not seeing my little baby if I go back to jail,” she said in her first post-incarceration interview. “It scares me so bad,” she added of the possibility of losing her 2-year-old daughter Leah.

Amber then goes on to reveal she regrets doing the MTV hit show to begin with as she believes her domestic violence attacks against her ex-fiance Gary Shirley would have gone unnoticed had she not done the show, well duh.

“I wouldn’t have been in jail because nobody would have known about it,” she explained. Her brother seems to agree. “I can’t say completely that it’s the show’s fault because obviously my sister did it. But Amber and Gary asked them not to air the fight because they knew this legal stuff would happen. Now my sister gets death threats, and my niece’s life is in turmoil,” Shawn Portwood told Life & Style.

“I might get attention, but it’s not the right attention,” Amber also told TMZ in a video interview on Monday. “I turned 20 and I don’t want to be known as ‘Amber from Teen Mom.’”

In other Amber news, TMZ posted another leaked audio recording of Gary this week, during which he can be heard completely bashing his baby mama Amber.

In the December audio recording, Gary can be heard on the phone with Krystal, who just happens to be Amber’s cousin. Gary explains to Krystal he has a crush on her and then points out, “You’ve got things that Amber don’t … like a job.”

It didn’t end there as Gary added, “Amber is sluttish. You’ve been with six dudes, Amber’s been with f**king a million.” Ouch, but it gets even better as Gary tries to convince Crystal to come to his place by saying, “If you ever want to piss off Amber, let me know.”

More money troubles for the bankrupt Teresa Giudice, star of the Real Housewives of New Jersey.

According to a new RadarOnline report, a NJ judge has ordered Teresa’s husband Joe Giudice to pay $260,000 to his former business partner Joe Mastropole.

This all stems from a lawsuit filed by Mastropole in which he accused Joe of forging his signature on a mortgage loan and then pocketing $1 million from that loan. Judge Morris Stern reportedly found Joe, who he described as lacking credibility, guilty of forging the signature.

According to the judge, Joe will have to pay his former business partner the $260k in spite of his legal claim for bankruptcy protection.

“The signing of Mastropole’s name was a forgery… exhibiting willfulness and malice toward a former friend and current adversar,” Judge Stern wrote in his judgment, handed down in the U.S. Bankruptcy Court in Newark on Monday. “The extraordinary web of lies and misrepresentations woven by Giudice to implement and cover his misconduct reflects on his approach to business matters and suggest his disregard for legal restraints which would bind others.”

Moving on to other NJ news, despite her unwillingness to confirm or deny her return to the Real Housewives of New Jersey on the Bravo New Year’s Eve special, Popeater is echoing what we suspected all along, which is that Dina Manzo will not be returning to the Bravo hit show.

Dina however tells the site that her TV career is far from over. “You’ll see my face pop up on TV in the near future. I’m working on something very exciting, but it’s not reality TV,” says Dina who adds that she’s “happier than ever” since quitting the show. Though we’re not really sure what storyline Dina would have had after her ex-husband reportedly refused to allow their daughter Lexi to continue filming, in addition to her current husband, Tommy Manzo, who has also refused to do the show.

“I love them all. They’re great. The show just wasn’t for me. I’m a private person,” added Dina, who has appeared on two national reality shows in the past couple of years.

Popular Bravo housewives Lisa Vanderpump and Nene Leakes were both on hand to help the network celebrate it’s first and fingers crossed last New Year’s Eve Party last Friday, and for some reason, no one is talking about the little tiff that occurred between the two housewives. But it’s a slow news day so we’ll talk about it!

It all started about midway through the 2-hour-show when the show returned from a commercial break and host Andy Cohen mentioned that Lisa of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills had just confronted Nene of the Real Housewives of Atlanta about some comments she made.

Lisa told Nene she had heard her diss her franchise by stating all the women had too much plastic surgery. Lisa stated she found Nene’s comments to be hypocritical considering Nene had gotten a nose job, boob job and liposuction this year alone.

Nene immediately looked none too pleased with Lisa and adamantly denied ever saying those things. Nene then went on to add that she would never say such a thing about the Beverly Hills ladies because she thinks “they are boring.” Lisa looked a bit stunned as she tried to stick up for her show, stating the dinner from hell episode was far from boring. Nene disagreed calling it “wack.”

The little tiff ended and Nene appeared to give Lisa the cold shoulder for the remainder of the show. Unfortunately the footage has yet to appear online but if anyone comes across it, feel free to post the link in the comments section.

And the story gets even better as it turns out Lisa was right. Nene did indeed utter those words about the Beverly Hills Housewives. In fact, we at Reality Tea blogged about this back on February 26, 2010. Nene’s comments were made as rumors were swirling about the yet to be confirmed Beverly Hills franchise. Bravo wouldn’t officially confirm the news until weeks later.

Nene told FoxNews back then, “If they do the Beverly Hills Housewives, they’ll probably be all plastic – big lips, fake tits, tummy tucks.” Yikes, Guess Nene didn’t think Lisa was paying attention.

Other highlights of the show included Tamra Barney making out with Andy Cohen at midnight, Jeff Lewis teasing Kim Zolciak about pretty much everything, Ellen Barkin calling in drunk, Jenni Pulos debuting her new rap, and of course the wedding between Giggy and Grandma Wrinkles. Grandma Wrinkles refused to sign a prenup by the way. Can you blame her?

Jeff Lewis also tweeted the following after the show – “Still recovering from NYE. WWHL camera didn’t catch @KimZolciak throwing her drink on me after my off color comment. I probably deserved it.”

So, Nene and Lisa are the favorites of their franchises according to our polls bringing us to the question of the day…

TELL US – TEAM LISA/GIGGY OR TEAM NENE? SHOULD BRAVO AIR ANOTHER NYE SPECIAL THIS YEAR?

A smiling Kate Gosselin (a rarity) and her eight children were spotted at the Australia Brisbane Airport on Tuesday for what is being described as a family vacation.

And it wouldn’t be a Gosselin family vacation without a camera crew in tow of course. According to the HollywoodLife, Kate and her plus 8 were accompanied by cameramen, a sound technician, her beloved bodyguard/rumored beau Steve Nield, and two nannies who are pictured above with her.

Kate, 35, is having the family vacation filmed for her TLC show Kate Plus 8. RadarOnline is also reporting that Kate’s ex-husband Jon Gosselin tried to stop the vacation from happening.

Kate told Jon about the trip, and when he did not agree it was decided that the judge should intervene and the ruling went in her favor,” a source explains. “It was another slap in the face for Jon because he did not want the kids to go to Australia.”

As for the reason Jon was so against the trip down under, the source reveals that “Jon had plans to get together with his kids and friends for New Year, but now he will not see them until they return in the middle of January. He was scheduled to have them this weekend, but there was nothing he could do as the decision was taken out of his hands.”

Jon is reportedly trying to put on a brave face though he is described as being disappointed at not being able to be with his kids for the New Year.  A source adds that “the judge ruled that because it was for work it was okay.”  Wowzers.

And finally, Kate was photographed wearing a bikini as she hit the beach with her kids on Tuesday. That photo is below -

Well that didn’t last long. Just 2 weeks after making headlines for sporting a classier mature look, it seems Jersey Shore star Jenni Farley aka JWoww is back to her old ways.

According to UsWeekly, JWoww’s above breast-baring outfit, which includes pasties and a chain-like thingy, was deemed too racy for television by MTV. See JWoww, 24, who appeared on MTV New Year’s special with her Jersey Shore costars wanted to wear the outfit without the blazer but MTV quickly halted those plans.

“JWoww wanted to wear just her chains and pasties without her blazer for the MTV New Year’s Eve special,” a source reveals. “Her management made her wear the blazer as well to abide by MTV’s Standards & Practices,” the source added. Who knew MTV had “Standards & Practices?”

In other Jersey Shore news, JWoww’s costar Snooki is officially becoming an author as the pint size guidette is set to release her first book this week.

The book is titled “A Shore Thing,” and the NY Post was kind enough to post some excerpts for us. Those are below. Enjoy -

* “He had an okay body. Not fat at all. And naturally toned abs. She could pour a shot of tequila down his belly and slurp it out of his navel without getting splashed in the face.”

* “Yum. Johnny Hulk tasted like fresh gorilla.”

* “Any juicehead will get some nut shrinkage. And bacne. They fly into a ‘roid rage, it is a ‘road’ ‘roid rage.”

* “Gia danced around a little, shaking her peaches for show. She shook it hard. Too hard. In the middle of a shimmy, her stomach cramped. A fart slipped out. A loud one. And stinky.”

* “I love food. I love drinking, boys, dancing until my feet swell. I love my family, my friends, my job, my boss. And I love my body, especially the badonk.

Following weeks of heavy promotion, the new season of The Bachelor featuring Brad Womack is set to premiere tonight on ABC!

Yes 30, a huge difference from the 20 bachelorettes Jake Pavelka had to pick from last season. So why the additional ladies? “We’ve added episodes and gone to two hours of late. It helps us fill some voids and make it more compelling,” explains show host Chris Harrison.

Also on tonight’s episode, we will get to see Brad, who makes it very clear that he has done some soul searching and gotten intense therapy for his commitment issues, meet up with the two ladies he dumped from his 11th season of the show. Yes, Jenni Croft and DeAnna Pappas will be appearing on tonight’s show. The good news is that both ladies have since moved on as Jenni is now married and DeAnna is engaged.

We can also expect to see a very buff Brad in many shirtless scenes this season. “The rule with Brad is he could not have his shirt on more than 30 percent of the time,” Chris joked. “It’s an incredibly sexy season.”

And finally, an happy ending awaits us this season as Brad himself as confirmed he definitely falls in love and picks someone. “I did find somebody, I did fall in love … a true love story happened,” stated Brad.

The new season of the Bachelor airs tonight at 8/7c.

Is Real Housewives of Orange County star Gretchen Rossi hoping for a spin-off show a la Bethenny Frankel?

According to a new report by the Hollywoodnews.com, that answer is yes! Gretchen and boyfriend Slade Smiley, who are rumored to have gotten engaged on the show’s upcoming season, reportedly want a spin-off show to showcase their relationship.

Gretchen joins the likes of Kim Zolciak, who also wanted her own spin-off show following the news that she was pregnant for her NFL beau. But as of now, it seems Bravo is not moving forward with any plans for a Gretchen or Kim spin-off.

Moving right along to the Real Housewives of OC season 6. After Bravo aired a sneak peek of the upcoming season of the Real Housewives of NYC over a week ago, many fans were left wondering what the heck happened to the OC season? Well, fret not as it seems all is well in Bravoland and Bravo is still planning to air to the OC Housewives season 6, but in February and no longer January as tentatively announced last year.

A fan asked Tamra Barney when the show would be airing on her facebook page and Tamra replied today, “I don’t know yet… I hear next month.”

Gretchen also had a similar answer in a recent video interview she posted on her site about the upcoming season – “So we just wrapped season 6 and they’re saying it’s going to air like January/February so we should see how the end result is,” she said. We say February as Bravo typically releases the press photos for the housewives at least a month before their season airs.

So what can we expect from Gretchen on the new season? Well according to Gretchen, she is all about promoting her businesses this time around. “This season for me was all about my businesses, my handbag line that I just launched (the Gretchen Christine Collection) and then I have my make up line (Gretchen Christine Beaute). And it’s really kinda about that and a little bit about my own turmoil of dealing with do I want to be married or not?” said Gretchen.

Interesting, and finally Gretchen posted some holiday photos of she and Slade on her personal site. One of the photos included Slade’s rarely seen older son Gavin, who appeared on the 1st season of the OC Housewives. Alexis Bellino also posted some photos of herself wearing her New Year’s Eve dress on her facebook page. Those photos are below -
