Rachel Reilly of Big Brother

Rachel Reilly, a 26 year-old chemistry graduate student/VIP cocktail waitress from Las Vegas, NV, found herself the latest houseguest to be eliminated from Big Brother 12.

Rachel, the winner of two HOH competitions was ultimately sent home for being both a threat and an annoying HG. Rachel was a target from the start due to her quick developing showmance with Brendon, and success at competitions. In a new interview with PEOPLE, she discusses being eliminated, her future with ‘her man’ Brendon, and what she thinks of the other players.

Excerpts from Rachel’s interview below (Note: this interview was done before Rachel’s return to the house) -

Brendon went on the offensive to keep you in the house. He threw away his chances at half a million dollars for you. If your feelings for him were so strong, why didn’t you try to stop him, or at least make the same offer to him?
I did try to stop him. I did make him the same offer. He and I discussed which one of us we wanted to keep in the game when we knew that one of us was going home. It was a mutual decision. He told me he wanted to do it and NOT to stop him.

You were such a strong player, and Brendon couldn’t seem to pull his weight. Do you think Brendon let you down when it mattered the most?
He didn’t let me down, but I wish he would have won.

With each eviction, your outgoing message was: “Ain’t nobody getting between me and my man!” Do you think the showmance blinded you to a point? Why do you think that people were trying to break you up rather than playing the game?

I don’t think they were trying to break us up. I think they were trying to break up our strong alliance because we were both strong players. I still don’t want anyone getting between me and my man!

You said that you are Vegas, but Brendon was going to give up a chance at half a million for you. Would you have given up Vegas for Brendon?
It would be really hard to move to L.A., but it would also be really hard to not be with Brendon. Mostly, it would be hard to leave Vegas, but I think I could do it.

How strong is the bond that you and Brendon have? He said that you could be the mother of his children, do you agree?
We have a very strong bond. I think that we have a very good future ahead of us. Keep your eyes out.

What was your biggest mistake? How did it affect your game? Knowing what you know now, would you have not gotten involved in a showmance that alienated the rest of the house?

I think that I should have kept Kristen and Hayden. Kristen would have eventually turned on me, but I think that it would have bought me a few more weeks in the house. No — I trusted Brendon more than I trusted the rest of the houseguests. He would have always been loyal to me when the rest of the houseguests were only out for themselves.

You said that you thought everyone could be “playing harder”, who is playing the strongest game so far, and why?
Matt and I were playing the strongest games. We were the only ones that were not scared to win and to play. We weren’t scared to make decisions.

Tonight’s episode of Big Brother should be epic as Matt will likely be using his Diamond power of veto to get himself off the block. Since he won’t be putting up any of his Brigade members, it’s likely Kathy or Britney will be his replacement nominee.

Bravo housewives in Bikinis

Bethenny Frankel is showing off her post baby bikini body in the latest issue of Life&Style magazine.

The Real Housewives of NYC star was photographed on the beach rocking her blue bikini just 3 months after delivering daughter Bryn Hoppy. The magazine claims Bethenny’s photos were not retouched.

The 5’6 star is back to her pre-pregnancy weight of 118 pounds and shares her diet tips with the mag. “There’s been no real drastic anything,” Bethenny, 39, says. “I’ve really been eating, just not like a crazy person. Taste everything, eat nothing.”

Bethenny states she’s in a healthy place now and no longer does extreme diets. “I was owned by dieting and I hated myself,” she says. “I’ll never be extreme again, it just doesn’t work.”

In other Bravo housewives bikini news, Real Housewives of DC star Michaele Salahi is also showing off her bikini body. Why exactly? Well the 44-year-old reality star/alleged White House party crasher wants to prove to the world that she’s not anorexic!

“I’m not anorexic!” insists Michaele in the latest issue of InTouch Weekly. “I’m a skinny girl. I always was. I’ve never had an eating disorder in my life. And it hurts to be called anorexic.”

Michaele, who along with her husband Tareq, has been accused by numerous individuals and companies of owing them money also shares with the mag that she would like to get a boob job within the next 6 months. Excerpts from Michaele’s interview below -

How do you defend yourself?
Honestly, I can’t believe those women have so much time to devote to my weight. If they get out there and move, they will look like me and be thin, and it’ll all be good.

What’s your diet like?
I start the day with a hot chocolate and cereal — I love Lucky Charms or Kashi GoLean — then some fruit. I don’t really eat a lot in the middle of the day. I have an early dinner, which is always a salad, with plain chicken, grilled or broiled.

What about plastic surgery — would you ever do it?
Definitely. I would love to do a whole lot of Botox and maybe get collagen, too. I also think it would be great to have boobs. I’m a B [cup], so I’d get a C. I’m all for anything you can do to make yourself look and feel better.

When would you do it?
Hopefully, within the next six months. But my husband doesn’t want me to do my boobs!

Chris LambtonVienna Girardi with boyfriend John Sala

Chris Lambton wants nothing to do with the Bachelor franchise reports E! News.

According to E! online, the former Bachelorette finalist has rejected ABC’s offer to have him become the next Bachelor. Chris’s reason? He reportedly wants to step away from the spotlight and return to his “normal life.”

In layman’s terms, Chris is not a famewhore, which of course only makes him more likable. However, sources tell E! that the ABC network is not ready to give up on Chris yet.

“The producers really want Chris to be the guy,” says a source. “They’re hoping they can convince him…This definitely isn’t dead yet.” An ABC insider adds that it’s “too soon” to determine who will be the next Bachelor.

Though Chris would have made a great Bachelor, must say this is a smart choice for him, as show has gotten much trashier and phony by the minute.

In other news, approximately 2 months after her nasty split with Jake Pavelka, it seems Vienna Girardi has moved on to a new man!

The 24-year-old Florida native, who had to endure a sexless relationship with Jake, stepped out with new beau John Sala on Tuesday. Usweekly reports the two lovebirds got very cozy during their night out.

Vienna posted on her twitter on Tuesday, “Yes, Im dating and he is amazing guy…Im so Happy!!.” Here’s to hoping we won’t have to read the sordid details of this relationship when it ends, not that we think it won’t last forever or anything.

Danielle Staub

Ever since Life&Style broke the news that Bravo fired Danielle Staub from the Real Housewives of New Jersey, the question has remained is she fired or isn’t she?

Well the NYDailyNews is now confirming today that Danielle was indeed fired by Bravo, but they put it in nicer terms, stating that Bravo simply did not ask her to return.

An insider confirms to the site that Bravo has began working on the 3rd season of the hit show, and has asked Danielle’s co-stars Caroline Manzo, Teresa Giudice and Jacqueline Laurita to return.

It all went down a week after the reunion show taping. Bravo reportedly sent Caroline, Teresa and Jacqueline letters asking them to return for a third season. The insider adds that Danielle did not receive a letter and, was not even aware that her co-stars had.

A source also adds that Danielle was unaware she was off the show until she read it online on Monday. As for Danielle’s cryptic non-denial message on Monday, the source says she’s not that upset because she might be getting her own solo reality show. She is said to be “working with production companies who are really interested and have talked to Bravo.”

And as for the gruesome twosome aka the two Kims, they weren’t asked back as well. The source stays this season was a bit of an audition for Kim Granatell and Kim DePaola, adding that they might be asked to make guest appearances next season.

The NYDailyNews doesn’t touch on whether or not Dina Manzo was asked back. Dina left during this season because she no longer wanted to film with Danielle. Dina however posted an interesting tweet this week regarding the Danielle story – “yes, I’ve heard the news, don’t know if it’s true. Rumor has it I may not be invited if I don’t put my daughter back on air. Can u believe?”

Perhaps someone should inform Dina the show is about the women and their families. Without a husband or daughter on the show, she really isn’t bringing much to the table.

Heidi Montag and Frank Ryan

Plastic Surgeon Dr. Frank Ryan, who became well known for performing  Heidi Montag’s 10 plastic surgery procedures in one day, has died in car accident on Monday in Los Angeles.

According to TMZ, Ryan’s Jeep steered off the Pacific Coast Highway and landed on the rocks below.  He was pronounced dead at the scene.

Even more sad, PEOPLE magazine is reporting today that Ryan, 50, was texting right before crash. His ex-girlfriend, Charmaine Blake, tells PEOPLE he was sending a Twitter message about his border collie right before the fatal car accident.

“He lived up in Malibu on a tiny street and he was texting while driving and he accidentally went over the cliff,”  says Charmaine, also confirming to PEOPLE that investigators told Ryan’s family his Tweeting caused the accident.

As for Heidi, the Hills star had the following to say upon hearing the news of Ryan’s passing.  “I am devastated to hear the news of Dr. Frank Ryan’s death,” she wrote on her Twitter. “He was the most amazing person I have ever known. He was an angel and changed my life and the lives of everyone he met. He was the most brilliant talented surgeon who will ever exist. Dr. Frank Ryan changed the world.”

RIP to Dr. Ryan, and let’s keep our fingers crossed that Speidi won’t exploit this to get publicity for themselves.

Lamar Odom and Khloe Kardashian

Khloe Kardashian and Lamar Odom are still surprisingly married after tying the knot back in September following only a few weeks of dating.

And though pregnancy rumors have plagued Khloe, star of Keeping Up With The Kardashians, she states she isn’t trying to get pregnant, while not doing anything to prevent a pregnancy.

“It’s in God’s hands, and let it happen when it happens,” said Khloe to PEOPLE.  “I’m 26. It should happen naturally. I don’t want to force it. I would love to have a baby, and if I get pregnant, I get pregnant.” She adds with a laugh: “I don’t think, like … my biological clock is ticking!”

And in other Khlamar news, RadarOnline is reporting the married couple got into a big fight recently after Lamar’s Team USA basketball win over France Sunday night.

According to Radar, Lamar was giving attention to other women while out celebrating which made Khloe very upset, causing her to leave the celebration solo.

“Women kept stopping by the table to say hi to the guys,” an eyewitness told Radar.  “After only 10 minutes, Khloe’s jealousy got the best of her and she stormed out.”

The eyewitness adds, “I overheard Khloe cursing Lamar out for being ‘too friendly… But Lamar didn’t really seem bothered when she left.”

The new season of KUWTK premieres August 22.

The Hills are alive with the Giudice indeed. Airing last night was Episode 15 of the Real Housewives of New Jersey, which might or might not have been one of the more boring episodes this season.

What did we learn last night? Well for one, ‘Ethninticity’ is a word according to Danielle Staub, Caroline Manzo finds it cute and adorable when Joe Giudice decides to throw a temper tantrum and go on a cursing rampage around kids, and Jacqueline Laurita really really cares about “old people.”

The episode starts out with the families as they get ready to dock in Naples. We immediately see a very cranky Joe and Teresa tries to convince us the source of this is that Joe doesn’t like being away from his business for a week. They all get on the bus, and Caroline tells us she’s annoyed by the Giudice children. Teresa however makes it clear she is not responsible for Caroline’s funky mood.

Danielle and her eyebrows attempt a heart to heart with her daughters, as she wants to discuss her birth mother. But before getting to the main topic, Danielle takes us down a trip on victims’ memory lane, rehashing Kim G’s betrayal and Teresa’s big mouth. And at the end of this convo, I’m still uncertain what the point of Danielle’s sit down with her daughters was. This just seems like an opportunity for Danielle to share her woe-is-me-Kim G-betrayed-me sob story. We do find out Danielle’s mother had her at age 15, but something tells me her daughters already knew that.

The families go out to dinner and we see the men eating “like they were going to jail.” Joe mentions they might have to hike it when visiting his family the next day. Jacqueline is immediately concerned as she realizes babies and old people do not know how to hike. Teresa however assures us in her interview that all will be well as Italy also has babies and old people, who hike everyday.

Danielle‘s favorite ex-con Danny decides to pay her a visit and informs her the others are gone to Italy. Danielle, who has had to suffer the last couple of weeks/months without a panini, is happy as she can now drive over to the market in Franklin Lakes without having to fear for her life. Danny randomly and oddly brings up Ashley, stating he has met some of her friends who have offered to help him. Help with what exactly? We’re not told. Danielle immediately goes on an Ashley bashing rampage. “She doesn’t have friends, she’s got terroristic tendencies,” said former prostitution whore/kidnapper Danielle.

Danny decides he needs to keep tabs on the then teenage Ashley, and Danielle encourages this because Ashley’s “got a special kind of crazy,” says the nutty pot.

We are now back in Italy and as the families get ready to leave for Joe’s hometown, the cursing resumes as the cranky and bankrupt Joe complains about the prices of things. Perhaps someone should inform Joe luxurious trips to Italy don’t come cheap. But then again Joe isn’t quite used to taking responsibility for his debts.

And at this point, I wonder just how much Bravo is shelling out for this fancy trip. As I said earlier, Bravo typically foots the bill for the ladies from the Housewives franchise to take a trip each season. My guess is Bravo was not willing to cover the expenses for the kids, grand parents and other family members involved in this trip, which would explain Joe’s outbursts. Which would then also mean the bankrupt and suppose to be broke Giudices continued to live beyond their means by bringing their whole family to Italy. What I wouldn’t do to know the amount of debt the Giudices have racked up since filing for bankruptcy back in October.

Teresa Giudice

Not that you needed any more reasons for your disgust dislike of Teresa Giudice, but we’re about to give you 60,000 more.

The NYPost is reporting today that the Real Housewives of New Jersey star celebrated being debt free by going on a $60,000 spending spree, after filing for bankruptcy to the tune of $11 million in debt back in October, 2009.

The shocker hasn’t even come yet. According to the Post, Teresa and hubby Joe Giudice blew $8,800 for curtains and nearly $45,000 on wall hangings, mirrors, frames, tables, urns and chairs, just days after filing bankruptcy. Just days folks…. Unbelievable.

CLICK HERE TO SEE PHOTOS OF TERESA’S HOME ITEMS SET FOR AUCTION!

This little tidbit came out yesterday as the morons Giudices had their attorney James Kridel file a court document with receipts that detailed the irresponsible spending, as a way to show the court that some of their auction items were purchased after their filing. The Post reports even Kridel seemed at a loss for words when trying to explain the asinine spending to Judge Morris Stern, saying he knew the documents presented “a dilemma” and that the Judge might view it as “conspicuous consumption.” Ya think?

“These were not Ikea-purchased furniture items,” Judge Stern said. “These were from high-end design stores.”

As we reported yesterday, the judge refused to stop the public auction of the Giudices home items, but postponed it to Oct. 3. Bankruptcy trustee John Sywilok, who has accused the Giudices of concealing assets, was also present during the hearing and stated that right before their bankruptcy filing, the Giudices purchased $21,000 worth of furniture and paid off a total of $11,000 of that amount just two days before filing.

And there’s more folks! While Teresa refused to comment on her irresponsible wasteful disgusting spending spree, hubby Joe, who is said to have been sweating profusely, got a little testy at the reporters. “None of your business! Back off before I get pissed!” stated an angry Joe outside of the courtroom.

And somewhere in America, an average couple is holding multiple jobs to keep a roof over their heads, feed their kids, and pay off their debt, while the Giudices get to remain debt free and live in their $5 mil mansion! Surely this has to be criminal…

UPDATE: Teresa’s lawyer James Kridel tries to explain the unbelievable spending spree she went on just days after filing bankruptcy.“That was the money she earned as an advance for her book Skinny Italian,” her attorney tells PEOPLE. “Since she earned it after the filing, she was absolutely free to spend it.”

It doesn’t end there. Kridel then tries to explain why Teresa needed to buy $60,000 worth of furniture while also acknowledging just how incredibly awful and disgusting this makes his client look. “She needed to re-buy furniture because she didn’t have any furniture in the house,” says Kridel. “It’s a big house and she wanted furniture consistent with her style on the show. There is nothing wrong with doing that, except that it doesn’t look good for her to be doing it.” No Kridel, it doesn’t, not by a long shot.

Must say it’s quite interesting that Teresa managed to receive her book advance just a few days after filing bankruptcy.
