WithTeen Mom, original sauce cancelled, Teen Mom 2 gotta pick up the slack and unfortunately, the cast members of MTV’s notorious trainwreck reality show are continuing to keep themselves in the news for breaking the law.
In the latest, Adam Lind, 21, the sometimes boyfriend of Chelsea Houska, was arrested for a DWI Saturday morning. Adam was pulled over for riding his motorcycle while allegedly intoxicated and driving on a suspended license. RadarOnline is reporting that Adam was arrested by Minnehaha County Sheriffs in Sioux Falls, South Dakota around 2:30 am Saturday morning. He was held behind bars for a few hours and released on $450 bail.
“He was charged with driving under the influence, exhibition driving and driving on a suspended license,” an insider reveals. Witnesses report Adam had been bar hopping all night and was driving home on his motorcycle when he was pulled over after the police observed him “hotdogging”.
Adam was bailed out by, but who else, Chelsea – who cannot seem to give up on the unwilling to reform bad boy. Sources report that she posted his bail early Saturday morning. Adam is due back in court April 26th to face charges associated with his arrest.
This is, of course, not the first arrest for father of the year, Adam, who even has a prior for underaged drinking! According to sources, “Adam turned 21 in January and has been drinking even more since then.”
Even worse, a source tells Starcasm, that this is Adam’s second DUI arrest since reaching the milestone birthday! Wowzers! Adam’s mug shot has not been released yet, but we’ll keep you posted once it surfaces on the net!
Atlanta, Atlanta, Atlanta…There is so much going on that I don’t know where to start! If you had told me several seasons ago that Kim wouldn’t be with Big Poppa, Phaedra would be accused of being a criminal kingpin, and NeNe would be a legitimate actress on a television show, I would have died laughing. Looks like the joke is on me!
As you recall, Phaedra Park’s former friend Angela Stanton has promoted an e-book in collaboration with Vibe. Lies of a Real Housewife: Tell the Truth and Shame the Devil makes some pretty strong accusations regarding Phaedra being the mastermind behind a crime spree that landed both Angela and Apollo Nida in jail. Vibe.com shared a series of video interviews with Angela in conjunction with her book release. In one of the videos, she states that Apollo’s “brother” lied about the extent of Angela’s involvement, in an effort to take the heat off Phaedra.
Now Vibe is issuing a “clarification“–or what regular folks would call an “Oops!”–on Angela use of the term “brother.” The site back pedals, “In the first clip (of three), Ms. Stanton refers to an individual involved in the criminal scheme described in the book, as the brother of Apollo [Phaedra’s husband]. It appears as if Everett and Apollo are not related by blood and Ms. Stanton refers to Everett as Apollo’s ‘street brother’ in her book. The statements made in the video clips were made by Ms. Stanton in a figurative manner and not in literal terms.” I wonder how many other Oops clarifications the site will have to make in connection with this book. Tamara Tattles notes that the book, which was holding the 67th spot on Amazon upon its release, has now dropped to the 5,289th position.
NeNe Leakes seems to have a new biffle in the form of Glee creator Ryan Murphy. The Neenster has been honing her acting skills on the hit series, and it was just announced that she will be starring in Murphy’s latest pilot, The New Normal. The show centers around a gay couple and their surrogate, and NeNe will play the recurring role of Rocky. It appears that the RHOA reality star may have found the perfect way to channel her dramatic personality!
NeNe recently tweeted a picture of her famous bestie, stating, “THE MAN that is changing my life 1 script @ a time Ryan Murphy.”
Adding another photo of her and Ryan for her followers, NeNe tweeted, “I gotta get that Emmy baby & this man is helping me make sure that happens.” Both of those photos are below.
NeNe’s former best friend/current nemesis Kim Zolciak also took to the twitterverse to defend herself when a follower called out her behavior towards former assistant Sweetie Hughes. After someone tweeted “RT @snooki I hate when people are mean to their assistants. Your not cool. responded, @throughmyeyes__ how about my former assistant/friend @sweetieHughes is one of my dearest closest friends soooo stfu!”
Mere minutes later, Kim gave quite a shout out to her friend, tweeting, “First vacation in a loooong time w/ out @sweetieHughes we already miss u!!! If u wanna come I got u ;)” A hilarious picture of Kim’s wigs on said vacation is also below!

OurTeresa Giudice, the little table flipper that could, is finally set to be Project Manager on tonight’s Celebrity Apprentice. The housewife best known for her juicy, bankruptcy-filing husband and fiery temper has kept her cool so far, but taking on the job of PM always brings out the fireworks.
In a recent interview with US Magazine, Teresa insists that Celebrity Apprentice is “cattier” than housewives because “you’re with a bunch of people you met for the first time.” Teresa says, “You really don’t care what the other person thinks of you and if you say something, you’ll just say it.” I don’t know if I buy this theory. On housewives, Teresa’s own brother and sister-in-law have said some pretty awful things about her, and I would say the Manzo brigade have been a lot cattier towards Teresa than her apprentice co-stars could ever be.
On her own blog, Teresa devotes an entire post to co-star Aubrey O’Day, and she insists that we would all love Aubrey if we just got to know her like she did. Maybe, but I think I’ll pass on living with Aubrey. Teresa blames Aubrey’s loud, verbose personality on the tyranny of youth:
The thing is, she’s young and she’s a little hyper and she talks a LOT. It does aggravate other people on CA, I can see how it looks to the viewers, but here’s how I see it: she’s young. I was the same way at 27. You’re just on fire to prove to the world how smart you are. In your 30s, you settle down a bit. She’s still fighting and I love that about her.
Teresa even went over to Aubrey’s apartment and stood by while Aubrey did her weekly Ustream show, popping in a bit to talk about Celebrity Apprentice and awkwardly answer questions from their Ustream chat room. Watch what happens when someone asks them who they think is “the sexiest” male on the show. Teresa comes in at the 11:00 minute mark.
Soon your television will soon be all Teresa, all the time, with the premiere of the fourth season of Real Housewives of New Jersey on Bravo on April 22. Teresa mentions the insane third season reunion in her US Magazine interview; that reunion was filmed while season four production had already started, so it was kinda nuts mixing up the drama. “The [season 3] reunion was really confusing, because we were taping season 4, so that’s why it didn’t go in sync with [the episodes that aired at the time]. Season 4 is definitely an eyeopener and it’s going to answer a lot of people’s questions.”
All of this attention should bode well for the May 15 release of Teresa’s third book, Fabulicious! Fast and Fit. I checked and Teresa’s “ghostwriter,” or “co-writer” Heather McLean depending on who you choose to believe, is listed on Amazon as a “Contributor.” Heather, apparently “contributed” to Teresa’s two other books.
Those royalty checks will be nice for Teresa, who TMZ spotted shopping at Marshall’s last week. How decidedly not fabulous! I hope she paid in cash. A photo of Teresa caught shopping at Marshall’s is below!

Reza Farahan (how much do you love him already!?) and company must be doing something right because last week–only its third episode–saw a jump to 1.5 million; a 37% increase in total viewers. Ryan trained this new cast well. And you know what that means? More trashtastic reality TV coming our way…
With four of the main cast members (Mike Shouhed, MJ, Reza, and Sammy Younai) all involved in real estate in one form or another, it’s not surprising that we’re getting a chance to see inside of some fabulous Beverly Hills homes. And let’s face it, since we didn’t win the Mega Millions jackpot, this is as close as we may get to them.
In a recent interview, Mercedes “MJ” Javid explains why she loves the sometimes over-the-top mansions (aka “Persian Palaces”). “It’s in our blood — Cyrus the Great and things like that. Plus, it’s practical, too. Dynasty [the TV show] is the quintessential Persian lifestyle. Every Persian parent dreams of having a house the size of that mansion so all of their kids and grandchildren can live under one roof.”
In other Shahs of Sunset news, Asa Rahmati, who has gifted us with a few peeks at her tunes “Tehrangeles” and “Diamond Water”, made a video for her newest song, “Gold”. Asa enlisted Reza to help her out with this latest artistic project. Watch around the 1:15 mark as Reza pops up wearing nothing but his porn ‘stache and a gold chain from the waist up.
In tonight’s episode, Asa will get a chance to share her newest single with a big time producer.

Serve up some free drinks and watch a billion fifteen reality stars flock to the red carpet!
Gretchen Rossi, Teresa Giudice, Brandi Glanville, Kyle Richards, Jon Gosselin, Aubrey O’Day, Courtney Robertson, Ben Flajnik, Renee Graziano, Ali Fedotowsky, DeAnna Pappas, Maksim Chmerkovskiy, Val Chmerkovskiy, Anita Gohari, and Ashley Hebert attended the ‘Night of a Billion Reality Stars’, hosted by Svedka Vodka at the Supperclub in Hollywood.
Courtney and Ben made sure to tacky up the place with heavy PDA. No doubt it was an attempt to make sure we know they’re for real. Nothing says ‘we found love on a reality show’ like massive amounts of making out on a red carpet for the world to see.
In other interesting nauseating news from that night: ‘Reformed’ famewhorer Jon Gosselin gave several interviews, sharing how much he loves living in the middle of the woods and leading a simple life.
He told Access Hollywood: “It just wasn’t for me in the end. I’ve been working 9 to 5, I’m a network engineer at a local IT company right by [my] kids’ house. I have a house in the woods. I do no normal things.”
Normal things, like attending red carpet Hollywood events. Simple, indeed.
Jon says that he and ex-wife, Kate Gosselin (who I would’ve expected to see at this event before Jon), are co-parenting the best way two fame-obsessed parents can. “We’re doing our best to co-parent. Sometimes we argue, obviously, so we have our differences in parenting and in life in general, but we only do what we can handle.”
And word to the ladies, this dad-of-the-year is single and ready to mingle: “I’m dating and just taking things slow. I’m a country boy from Pennsylvania.”

The Kim Kardashian vs. Kris Humphries divorce war rages on, and I have to say this is the most interested I’ve ever been in Kim. While we all wait for a resolution, the ex-couple continues to battle it out over every detail. Isn’t it funny that their divorce has lasted far longer than their marriage?
In a new edition of Us Weekly (print edition), Kim is apparently fed up with Kris trying to make her life a living hell by refusing to sign the divorce papers quickly and quietly. Team Kardashian is coming out swinging at Kris and accusing him of dragging out the divorce for attention. Which is also funny, because, arguably, she married for attention! They also accuse him of hiding wedding presents only to make a big deal of what happened to the gifts in the press.
“She would grant a divorce in a second, but he won’t sign the papers, he won’t let go,” Kris Jenner a friend of Kim’s reports. “Kris wants to hurt her. He’s doing this to humiliate her, plain and simple.” Even worse, a source accuses Kris of doing all of this to recapture Kim’s attention! Please…
They also believe Kris is a famewhore of the first order, which is a concept the Kardashians are very well acquainted with. “Kris wants money and he wants fame,” a source insists. “His strategy is to keep leaking nasty items about her to the press until she caves and gives him money.” Reports have claimed Kris is seeking as much as $7 million dollars in the divorce settlement in exchange for silence.
Furthermore, Kamp K insists Kris started a “tug-of-war” over the wedding gifts, making it look like Kim selfishly took ownership of all of them. A Kardashian source claims Kris gave “a ton of s**t to his family,” post wedding. “You should check the Humphries’ home in Minnesota for some $27,000 Lalique vases,” he adds.
Kim’s people say the only gifts she kept were the ones given by her guests–as dictated by their pre-nup–and she donated the amount of all the gifts to charity.
Upon learning that the Kardashians were accusing the Humphries of harboring gifts, the family was reportedly disgusted. “That’s not even close to being true at all,” a source for the Humphries family tells HollywoodLife. “Kris’ family received some Bibles and maybe two or three other things, but nothing expensive like Lalique vases.”
Kim, high on delusion, maintains she had no intention of hurting Kris with the divorce, which is why she hasn’t spoken out publicly about her pre-divorce marriage until now – despite the onslaught of magazines that continue to trash him and are filled with so-called anonymous sources. “I’m so ready, emotionally, for this chapter to be over. I want to leave it in my past so I can start fresh,” she tells Us Weekly.
Kris is irate over these so-called reports accusing him of ruining Kim’s life, and he is even more angry that Kim is now making accusations against his family. He believes it’s her own fault her life is such a mess. Which is true.
And Kris is moving forward with his annulment based on fraud. Proving that he’s not backing down to the Kardashians’ “bullying,” Kris filed court documents accusing Kim of “breaching fiduciary duty;” demanding she reveal how much money she earned during their wedding and subsequent short marriage! Did I mention I am liking this Kris more and more?
“A husband and wife are subject to the general rules governing fiduciary relationships which control the actions of persons occupying confidential relations to each other. This confidential relationship imposes a duty of the highest good faith and fair dealing on each spouse, and neither will take unfair advantage of each other,” Kris’ documents state.
“Kris feels that Kim hasn’t given an honest and accurate accounting of money they made while they were married,” a source tells RadarOnline. “Kris has complied with turning over his bank records, credit card statements, but Kim hasn’t, and she has been stalling. Kris didn’t want to take her to court over this, but he isn’t playing Mr. Nice Guy anymore.” A copy of the document is below!
Firing back against the wedding gift accusations, Kris’ court filings stipulate: “A spouse may not make a gift of community personal property, or dispose of community personal property for less than fair and reasonable value, without the written consent of the other spouse.”
And apparently, Kris decided to file these documents a day after Kim came out slamming him in Us Weekly with the cover story “My Divorce Hell!” Kim herself, along with the formidable Kris Jenner, speak out about her dark days following her divorce. Kris apparently timed the fiduciary demands to coincide with Kim’s tell-all and prove that if she continues accusing him of making her life hell, he really will! Yikes – this is getting nastier than I ever expected.
This latest magazine cover, which covertly trashes him while attempting to paint Kim the victim, coupled with the totally false depiction he feels he received on Kourtney & Kim Take New York, has been the last straw.
“Kris has told his lawyer to no longer attempt to reach a settlement with Kim. It’s a waste of time and he is ready to take this to trial, and he will,”a source reveals.”Kris just wants the truth to come out and that is what the courts are for. A judge can decide if the marriage should be annulled on grounds of fraud.” Wow!
“What is Kim so afraid of and why is she fighting their divorce going to trial? Kris’ name has been trashed in the press by Kim’s camp for a very long time, and he has the right to fight back but he isn’t doing it the way she is, and he will have his day in court.” Kris has refused to speak out about his marriage and divorce thus far, even getting upset on a Good Morning America appearance when pressed for details.
Lastly, Kim claims filing for divorce was “the toughest thing I ever had to go through,” and she is finally ready to date again! This time she is staying far away from athletes and celebrities. Kim wants “a lawyer or businessman; something different.” And because she’s picked so many losers herself, she’s hoping her sisters will help her out and set her up!
“Khloe is in Dallas, so I don’t think she knows anyone,” Kim says. “But Kourtney is really practical these days, I would trust her!” Oh God. Run men of Los Angeles, run! An STD is headed your way at warp speed!
IS KRIS MAKING KIM’S LIFE A LIVING HELL? OR IS KIM MAKING KRIS’ LIFE A LIVING HELL? SHOULD KIM TURN OVER FINANCIAL DOCUMENTS? DID KRIS KEEP WEDDING PRESENTS TOO?

Ready or not – here she comes! Kim Zolciak has officially–as in available on iTunes–released her new single, “Love Me First.” Poor, unfortunate readers got a taste of her warbly, heavily-autotuned new track (not written by Kandi Burruss) on Twitter last month, and now the official, massively-altered version hits stores. Oh, my – sit down for this one!
The Real Housewives of Atlanta star debuted the track on Ryan Seacrest‘s radio show yesterday, and well, let’s just say I heard it once and I don’t need to hear it again! “It was written about my life and what I went through 11 years ago,” Kim told Ryan. “I think people will be able to relate.” I can definitely relate to not being able to sing, Kim, if that’s what you mean…
Kim also released the cover art for the single – which is just as photoshopped as you’d expect, but she looks pretty. The photo is below!
Kim took to Twitter to advertise her newest attempt to convince people she can sing. “‘Love Me First’ was written about my life as a single mom and my struggles,” she wrote. “I love my life now! Living a dream and loving every minute of it!” Oh Kim, I love how you completely believe in your own delusions.
Moving on to other people who live in their delusions, Sheree Whitfield is finally addressing Marlo Hampton‘s use of the F-bomb. Despite rumors that Sheree and Lawrence Washington are no longer BFF after he made her hair break off and her weave yank hair out at the root, Sheree is still offended on his behalf over Marlo’s language and her denial that it was a big deal.
“When Marlo used the ‘F’ word, I was offended not only for Lawrence but for any other gay man that is my friend or not!;” Sheree seethes in her Bravo blog. “For her to stand there and blatantly lie about what she said was shocking beyond words. And for some reason unbeknownst to me, she continues to blame others for her outrageous comments and actions.”
“If you are girl enough to say it, be man enough to own it,” Sheree advises. And she hints that something just might not be right with ol’ Marlo. “At some point it stops being funny and becomes sad and makes one think that something could be loose.”
Sheree also talks about what many viewers perceived as her ruining her daughter Tierra‘s proposal after she pressured Damon into spending on a huge ring and party. Sheree denies having anything to do with Damon postponing and claims she really couldn’t care how big the rock was, because what matters is the size of a man’s, you know, heart! “Meeting up with Damon to pick out rings was fun. I’m glad he invited me to tag along.”
“We had a lot of laughs as I teased him about the size and prices of the rings,” Sheree insists. “At the end of the day, I could care less what size ring Damon gets Tierra, and he knows that. As long as he lives up to his vows and makes Tierra happy, her mom is happy!”
Finally, Marlo continues her desperate quest to be upgraded to full-time Housewife by attacking fan favorite, Phaedra Parks! In her second ever Bravo blog (go Marlo!), which was just as cryptic as the first, Marlo calls out Phaedra for tackying up Ayden‘s Dedication.
“There was so much, in addition to a lot of blue,” she says of the event. “I immediately realized that everyone’s perception of a grand, luxurious event is completely different. I prefer a touch of elegance, not an overflow.” I guess that means Marlo won’t be hiring Dwight Eubanks to plan her soirees anytime soon!
“The procession, however, was a high note. This is surely the way to enter a room!;” Marlo concedes. Well, to each is own. I personally think displaying all of your shoes and purses as if they were priceless art instead of payments from old white sugar daddies is “overflow” and scarcely the definition of elegance. But then again, I like things that are elegant and sophisticated… (can I just tell you that is my FAVORITE Housewives intro ever – it’s so perfectly ironic).

“Taylor’s appearances on Housewives will be greatly reduced,” a source reveals to HollywoodLife. “The producers want to make room for two new housewives.” The new wives are reportedly Yolanda Hadid and Marisa Zanuck.
“For all we know, Taylor might just quit the show if her role is diminished too much. That’s what happened to Camille Grammer. She said ‘Forget it,’ when she found out she would hardly be in the next season,” the source shares.
“The producers don’t want to concentrate on Taylor anymore,” the source continues. “They want a fresh start and new storylines.” And given the fan reaction to Taylor, particularly this past season, it’s perhaps in the show’s best interest to move in a more positive direction.
Which is why the embattled Kim Richards is also being added into the Friends of Housewives category. “Kim will also make some appearances, be they will be minimal,” the source explains.
The even better news, is that regardless of whether Taylor quits–or is fired–we likely won’t be seeing her on TV anywhere else! “All the housewives have signed two-year contracts with Bravo. So even if Taylor doesn’t come back, she can’t do another reality show for at least another year — and same goes for Camille and Kim.”
Moving on, Russell Armstrong is in the news again. Before his death, Russell took out a $1 Million dollar life insurance policy and named his ex-wife Barbara Fredrickson the trustee for an insurance trust that would benefit Russell’s eldest son.
The policy holder, American General Life Insurance Co. filed a claim in California Superior Court requesting a judge determine whether Barbara is in fact the entitled beneficiary who retains the rights to the policy, OR if it should be turned over to the estate of Russell Armstrong, aka The Armstrong Family Trust. The Armstrong Family Trust is reportedly held in an off-shore Cook Island account. And guess who allegedly presides over that account? If you guessed, Taylor – you guessed correctly!
In fact, Taylor is currently being sued by MyMedicalRecords for hiding missing investor monies. Their attorneys believe much of that money is possibly being sheltered in that same account.
But back to the life insurance policy, according to Courthouse News Service, American General is “ready, willing and able to pay the life insurance proceeds” but that “there are actual and conflicting claims relating” to the policy.
Barbara believes she is still entitled to that money, and submitted claim for the policy on January 9, 2012. Unfortunately, “Upon review of the claim, American General contacted Fredrickson requesting a copy of the trust agreement to facilitate payment of the death benefit. Fredrickson has been unable to locate a copy of any trust created by decedent.”
“Therefore, there existed no written appointment of Fredrickson as trustee. American General is informed and believes and on that basis alleges that Russell Armstrong never created an irrevocable life insurance trust for the benefit of A.A. prior to his death.” A.A. denotes Russell’s son, Aiden Armstrong, 13.
Barbara is unable to prove she is legally entitled to the money, because she no longer has the deed (if said deed ever existed), it will be distributed to the Armstrong estate – unless a judge rules in Barbara’s favor. The money has already been turned over to the court, who will then distribute it to its rightful owner following deliberation.
