According to the latest issue of Life & Style magazine, troubled Teen Momstar Amber Portwoodis very well headed for another breakdown.
Following her arrest last December in addition to a suicide attempt this summer which led to a 2-month rehab stint, the mag is reporting Amber, 21, is drinking and partying more now than before. And the source of the story is none other than Amber’s brother Shawn Portwood.
According to Shawn, Amber is spending more time out partying than she is reconnecting with her 2-year-old daughter Leah. “At least three times a week, Amber will go out to bars and clubs,” Shawn admits to Life & Style.
“Amber could see Leah every day, but she sees her maybe three times a week,” adds Shawn. “I don’t even know if Amber wants full custody of Leah. She enjoys her freedom too much right now.” As reported, Amber’s baby daddy Gary Shirley, who admitted last month that he was homeless, currently has custody of little Leah.
On Sept. 15, Amber was spotted at 59th Street Pub in Anderson and again on Sept. 27 dancing and downing beers at Jimbo’s Pub and Club in Anderson, Ind. “My friends were there and said she drank near a whole bottle of white wine,” reveals Anderson local Shane Butt. “She was kissing her new boyfriend [Jesse Stone] and even posing with her bottle of wine. It seems like rehab didn’t help too much.”
Shawn adds that Amber would rather be out at bars seeking attention from the Anderson locals than spending time with Leah. “She likes to go out where people see her and recognize her,” shares Shawn. In Amber’s defense, previous reports have stated she’s only allowed to see Leah twice a week during supervised visitation so perhaps partying is her unhealthy way of dealing with not having custody of her daughter.
While Amber is said to be dating new beau Jesse Stone (pictured below), Gary tweeted days ago that Amber was still trying to get back together with him. Gary wrote, “Spent a Lil time with Amber, just goes to show me that our relationship is like a burnt log and it can’t be relit.”
He then added: “I said no to her on getting back together she cried so I gave it some thought and she started calling me names like trash ect.” Gary broke up with Amber three weeks ago after getting a giant tattoo of her name on his back. He accused her of cheating of him.
Doesn’t sound like this dysfunctional relationship will be ending anytime soon! Below is a photo of Amber’s new boyfriend Jesse.

TELL US – THOUGHTS ON THE LATEST WITH AMBER AND GARY? DO YOU THINK SHE’S HEADED FOR ANOTHER BREAKDOWN?
For those of you who have been waiting patiently for the wedding of former Bachelorette, Ali Fedotowsky and super-hot fiancé, Roberto Martinez you may be waiting a long time. A very long time.
A new report states the couple, who met on The Bachelorette, aren’t quite the lovebirds they pretend to be! The televised wedding between Ali and Roberto was planned for this summer, but Ali postponed the ceremony after a kickboxing injury left her on crutches; stating she didn’t want to “limp down the aisle.”
Ali’s injuries have since healed, but her relationship? Well, it seems pretty broken. “Their relationship has been tumultuous since day one,” a friend tells US Weekly, claiming Ali, 27, and Roberto, 28, “bring out the worst in each other.”
“They’re either extremely happy or they can’t stand each other,” the friend explains of their off-TV dynamic. Ali is “miserable in the relationship and he is too,” the friend continues.
As for what is causing the misery in their relationship, the source cites jealousy on Roberto’s end, “big-time fights” and long work hours as part of the reason the couple is so unhappy. The couple is still living together in San Diego, but have yet to announce a new date for their nuptials.
Well, I guess we’ll all have to hope that Ashley and JP at least make it. As of now they are supposedly walking down the aisle in a Made-For-TV wedding.

Are you surprised Ali and Roberto aren’t happy? Do you think they will work out their differences and tie the knot or not?
Bringing you an all new photo post of the Real Housewives of New Jersey as the cast attended the New Jersey Fashion & Beauty Week 2011 at the Pleasantdale Chateau on October 3, 2011 in West Orange, New Jersey.
Meanwhile, based on the previews by Bravo for the upcoming RHONJ finale, it appears most fans will finally get to see the showdown between Caroiline and Teresa that they have been waiting for.
And of course it all has do to with Teresa taking not so subtle digs at her Caroline in her cookbook Fabulicious. We reported back in May that Teresa took some shots at her sis-in-law Melissa in the same book (Really — who takes shots at people in a cookbook?). Well apparently, Teresa didn’t end with Melissa.
In the excerpt posted below, Teresa disses Caroline’s Italian background or lack there off when she states: “I am, however, a huge fan of Caroline Manzo. (Even if she’s only 1/16 Italian, or whatever she is …).” Wowzers. Below is the full excerpt from Tre’s book -
“I can’t help it. Every time I sit down to write this intro to my Italian Family Cookbook, two things keep popping into my head: that cheesy Olive Garden commercial, “When you’re here, you’re family”; and what I said about CarolineManzo when she insulted my meatballs on the Rachael Ray show: “Caroline’s as Italian as the Olive Garden.
If you read Skinny Italian, you know I’m not a huge fan of Olive Garden because it takes traditional healthy Italian dishes and turns them into heart-clogging servings of ungodly proportions. (Forget Jersey Shore, it’s the Olive Garden that gives us Italians a bad name!) I am, however, a huge fan of CarolineManzo. (Even if she’s only 1/16 Italian, or whatever she is …)”
With digs like that, it’s no wonder Teresa now finds herself friendless! Teresa, who apparently sees herself as a victim, also took to her Bravo blog this week to fire back at her costars, mostly Jacqueline who called her “scum” during a recent twitter rant.
Below is an excerpt from Tre’s blog –
“As for the craziness on Twitter, I don’t think it’s a very healthy place to be right now (I just can’t take anyone who’s suddenly friends again with Kim G. seriously, sorry!), so I’m going to slowly slip out of it, and maybe take a little break for a while. I have a big project I have to work on, and I want to spend every other second with my family. Don’t worry, I’ll be back!”
Teresa has yet to begin that twitter break as she has been tweeting up a storm since she posted that blog. Even more interesting, a source told UsWeekly that Teresa has a “ghostwriter” for her Bravo blogs!
Below is another excerpt from Tre’s blog about her costars from the most recent episode of the show –
“I will say I didn’t like everything they showed of course. The whole time we were filming, I had no idea what other people were saying about me. I just assumed they were all my friends. That’s why you see me dancing around and trying to have fun in Punta Cana. It’s not until I watch the shows that I see all four of the other ladies having a go at me. On the show, I might talk about a certain incident and how I felt about it, but I don’t talk about personalities or their kids or how they spend their money, or how smart I think they are… I say, “She pissed me off, but I’m not going to let it bother me.” Cut to everyone else: “Teresa can’t be reasoned with, Teresa was dropped on her head as a baby,” all about my “character flaws” and how I didn’t “grow up,” how I’m “cuckoo.” I had no idea they were bashing me like that. Although, tell you the truth, even if I did, I wouldn’t do it back. I’m just not like that. It’s not fun to watch though.”
The drama never ends! More photos from the NJ Fashion & Beauty Event below!

With Real Housewives of Orange Countyfilming for its 7thand hopefully final season, the housewives and house losers partners are out in full-force to promote their claim to fame! In a new interview with OC Weekly, notorious duo, Gretchen Rossi and Slade Smiley talk their newest ventures, where Slade is getting money to pay for child support, and what you might catch a glimpse of in the upcoming season!
The anything for a buck couple’s newest project is the comedy show Keeping It Reality at the Irvine Improv. Slade describes the show as a “variety show.” “We have some very funny and successful comedians attached to the show,” Slade details. As for their role in making the audience laugh, “it’s really a little bit of Gretchen hosting and me doing some storytelling and poking fun at what our reality has become because of our association with the Housewives.”
Slade also reveals that his son, Grayson was recently on an episode of Glee! “He was on the episode when they went to the children’s hospital and played songs for the cancer kids. My son was the one who walked up and high-fived Matt Morrison!” And now Gretchen is jelly cause she wants to be on Glee, too!
The classy duo also take some time to slam their costar Tamra Barney by insinuating her beau is — coughs — batting for the other team, while also taking some shots at Slade’s ex Jo De La Rosa! Below are excerpts from their interview:
We love to see drama stirred and you just started filming so, how is the new season going so far?
Gretchen: It’s going good so far! We’ve got a lot to tell this season and I’ve got a lot on my plate. But, I’m really excited and I think the audience is really going to enjoy my stories and watching me continuously grow my brand Gretchen Christine. I’m also doing some stuff for the Pussycat Dolls and of course, the Irvine Improv which we are very excited about.
Any chance of a spin off show?
Gretchen: Yeah we keep trying to get fired but it doesn’t work! Here’s the thing, we are so grateful that Bravo has given this opportunity because it’s been so great and so fun to be able to accomplish everything we have. Sometimes though, I sit and cry at the editing. On another side, it would be awesome and an honor if they wanted to do a spin-off with Slade and I because I agree with you, we have a lot going on and we have a lot of stories to tell! However in the same breath, it’s very difficult to carry your own show and it’s not something I’m holding my breath for. But if it’s right, I think the audience will really be the ones who decide that for the network.
Slade: You know how that happened? I was offered the Bachelor, and after I ended my relationship with Jo I was still under contract. Bravo said they were going to pen a show for me sort of like a “real bachelorette of Los Angeles” with me helping her. It didn’t really blow people out of the water here but the show was such a huge hit in Europe! They are still so fanatical about that show, I just don’t get it. It’s like me and David Hasselhoff.
Any chance of a Gretchen/Jo collaboration?
Gretchen: [Laughs.] Yeah, that would be a big no.
Slade: You know Jo [De La Rosa] is very happy now bartending and singing karaoke. You know, Jo has a great voice but you have to be willing to do the work. I mean there are plenty of amazing artists who are not really good (Rihanna) I am not mentioning any names, but they have great fans and they can’t sing in public (Taylor Swift). I’m not saying that they haven’t gotten better but sometimes, they are horrific (Britney Spears). You can’t rely on being cute and being able to shake your ass, you’ve gotta put in work!
I was so repulsed with the Tamra [Barney] bathtub scene last season, did you guys almost throw-up as well?
Gretchen: Oh gosh that was bad.
Slade: You know why it’s so difficult for Eddie [Judge] is because he had to go to the heterosexual side of the fence. It was just really weird.
Classy. You know, I’m beginning to think Tamra’s claims that Gretchen is obsessed with her hold some water…
In addition to all the other exciting projects Gretchen has in the works, she is also also working on a new single, “Revelation” which was inspired by Grayson’s health struggles. As for an album… she’s not sure if “that’s the direction that I am necessarily shooting for right now.”
And she sure is desperately trying to push this comedy thing! While appearing The Playboy Morning Show with Slade; Gretchen gave us a sample of what an album might include – an ode to Slade’s magic penis. Yes – the folks that just made fun of Tamra’s bathtub scene, just debuted a little tune where they evoke people to “get your hands” on a magic schlong. Vomit, much?
Gretchen claims she wrote this gem while “sleeping on Ambien.” If you dare, a little sampling of the Grammy contender is below! But seriously – don’t dare.

Thoughts on Gretchen and Slade’s Interview? And their latest comedy show? Would you watch a Gretchen and Slade Spin-Off? Are you excited about the new season of RHOC?
Hot on the heels of her reality show, Kate Plus 8 being canceled and publicly begging for TV work, a new report has emerged claiming the eight Gosselin kids like hanging out with their father, Jon Gosselin in his little apartment much more than they enjoy Kate and her massive sprawling mansion!
“Kate is in such a bad mood all of the time now that she doesn’t have a job and she’s taking it out on the kids,” Jon a source discloses. “The kids love going to Jon’s place because everyone is in such a great mood!” Apparently she’ having reality TV camera withdraw or something!
After spending years making America believe Jon was a negligent parent who was distant from his kids and recently implying that he was “mediocre,” even telling the Today Show that she “waits for their” call because the kids beg to come home when visiting their dad, it seems Kate is actually crappy parent! “She’s always irritated and screaming at the kids for every little thing. It’s gotten really bad and the kids walk on eggshells when they come home from school.”
The source goes onto describe “The kids are actually begging to stay longer and they say things like ‘mommy is so mean’. It’s driving Kate crazy!”
In addition to the above report, the Huffington Post is also reporting that Kate is frustrated at the lack of TV offers! Because, you know, getting a normal 9 – 5 is completely out of the question since after all – she is entitled to be on television forever.
“She has approached many different networks, including pitching a travel show idea to her old network, TLC, but so far no one has said yes,” a source said. “She assumed that given her fame, producers and networks would be knocking her over with job offers and is, to say the least, very surprised that she hasn’t received a single one.”

Thoughts on the article? Do you believe Kate is the nightmare the source is making her out to be?
Following the ambush on the recent episode of Basketball Wives LA, led by her costars, Draya Micheleis now speaking out on doing the show plus the way she was bullied treated by said costars.
Below are excerpts from Draya’s interview with Sister 2 Sister –
Tracy: Has the show been what you expected? Draya: It’s pretty much worse than I expected only because I’m always the topic of the discussion and I really didn’t expect to play such a major role
Tracy: Do you think they haven’t warmed to you because you’re not a wife? Draya: I think they don’t have a respect for me because I’m not with any basketball players. I don’t think it’s about not being a wife. It’s only two people that’s married; everybody else is just technically a babymama.
Tracy: Your co-star Imani Showalter called you “worthless.” She apologized, but why do you think she and some of the others have such a strong and negative opinion of you? Draya: They say a lot of things, but I’ve heard worse things from people who are more important. They’re not that important to me, but the things that they say are not that important. Everybody has dirt. Everybody has issues. If you can throw stones at somebody else, there’s obviously something going on with you. I don’t care to know about anybody’s personal life. I’m in my business.
Tracy: You’ve said on the show that you’re going to stop being nice. When? Draya: You can expect a lot of things. Just when you think it’s safe, it’s kinda not again. I can’t fly off the hinges at first … If I fight with everybody, there’s no more me. I know what I’m doing. I’m playing my part the way that I’m supposed to. I don’t kiss nobody’s butt.
On twitter, a fan asked Draya what the other ladies would have to talk about on the show if she wasn’t on it, she responded: “Menopause !!!! Lol” Ouch.
And while Draya, real name Andraya M. Howard, maintained on the show that the police report detailing how she neglected her son was fake, the reporter who first broke the news back in January insists the report was absolutely the real deal. Draya even went as far as to claim the reporter lost his job for doing the story — which also appears to be false. Below is a statement given by Philadelphia journalist Steve Henshaw –
“This item was published in the 9/16/11 edition of the Eagle about Howard’s court case. The article I wrote was based entirely on the police report (the affidavit of probable cause) that I had in hand. After Howard’s mother called to complain that the story was inaccurate, I called the police officer and he said the story was very accurate. Howard’s entering ARD status is tantamount to a guilty plea. Why would a judge order her to 40 hours of family counseling if he/she didn’t believe that what the police officer reported he saw/heard was true? Andraya Howard shows her character when she accuses the police and the paper of making up facts after she has under oath before a judge accepted the punishment.”
The original article written by Steve was published back in January. A new article was written in September, which revealed Draya was in fact sentenced for the child neglect case involving her son. Below is an excerpt –
“Howard was accepted into the Accelerated Rehabilitative Disposition program, which allows first-time offenders to clear their record after serving probation. She was sentenced in Berks County Court to two years of probation and ordered to attend family counseling and perform 40 hours of community service on a charge of endangering the welfare of a child.”
According to the original report (which is still up on the website), Draya — a former stripper — was arrested back in January of this year after her 7-year-old son called 911 at about 2 a.m. and told dispatchers he was home alone. He told a Patrolman he called his mother’s cell phone about 20 times to find out where she was. She said she was at a tanning salon and would be home soon.
Cops revealed the apartment looked like it had been ransacked, with women’s undergarments scattered throughout the living room. A small dog was in a cage, and dog feces and dog urine were in several places in the apartment. Cops witnessed Draya’s son getting a TV dinner from the freezer, standing on the counter and putting it into the microwave. Draya’s mom was then given custody of her son.
So there you have it folks! It appears Draya lied on the show about a reporter “faking” a police report. Plus why would anyone or any journalist for that matter go through the process of falsifying a police report as that’s a pretty serious offense. Not that this excuses the behavior of some of Draya’s costars or anything.
As for Draya, she maintains she loves her son very much. While the episode aired on Monday night, she tweeted: “Of course im going to cry. I’m a mother. This involves my child. I will cut, steal, kill for him.” Below are some photos of Draya with her son Kniko -
TELL US – THOUGHTS ON DRAYA’S INTERVIEW AND THE POLICE REPORT BEING REAL? DOES THIS CHANGE YOUR VIEW OF HER OR THE CONFRONTATION BY THE LADIES?
Last night’s Survivor was very cut-throat. As usual, Brandon does a lot of repenting, Dawn does a little ass kicking to win immunity for her tribe, and Cochran and Marijuana Jim devise a plan to disrupt Team Pretty. I am loving Savaii this season. Is it just me, or is the Upolu just a bunch of Shady McShadersons?
The episode begins with Ozzy and Elyse getting cozy on a hammock. Marijuana Jim is getting jealous nervous that their bond may be tighter than his is with Ozzy. He’s worried Ozzy is morphing into Rob Mariano. MJ quickly realizes that Elyse has to go before they become a power couple. Has someone been smoking dope watching Bachelor Pad? Marijuana Jim finds a quick ally in Cochran, as it buys him more time to prove himself.
Over at Upolu, Brandon Hantz Crazy Pants is apologizing to Mikayla for gravitating towards untruth. He next approaches Edna to repent for his lying and to casually mention that Edna is not a member of the main alliance like she thought she was. I couldn’t tell if it was a strategic move on Brandon’s part or inadvertent slip-up. You never can tell with that sneaky BHCP.

If you just can’t handle any more annoying trashy drama concerning Jenelle Evans don’t read on!
Apparently the anger management-challenged Teen Mom was involved in another physical altercation. This time with her mom, BarbaraEvans. The two have always had a tense relationship to say the least, but the latest incident warranted police intervention.
On September 6th Barbara called the police over Jenelle’s aggressive behavior. According to police dispatch, Barbara told officers that Jenelle “started cursing at her, calling her names, and was destroying the residence.”
Barbara reported that Jenelle “went into Barbara’s room and knocked her things off her dresser to the ground,” following an argument.
Well, Jenelle has a different version of the events! Jenelle blamed her mother for starting the fight and making her angry! Right, Jenelle – you were completely innocent (eye roll). Jenelle maintains “she was washing her clothes when her mother came into the laundry room and was arguing with her,” and then “knocked over a shelf spilling bleach in the washing machine with her clothes.” No clothes were ruined in the incident in case, you were wondering.
Jenelle also claims that she went into her mom’s room to get some items off the floor and she accidentally knocked her things on the floor when she accidentally bumped into the dresser.
The fight continued in the kitchen where Jenelle was “working on her laptop” (working on what, I wonder… ) and her mother came into the kitchen to give Jenelle’s son, Jace some medicine. Jenelle alleges her mother “threw the medicine on her, her laptop and then threw the bottle at her.” Luckily Jenelle was able to salvage her laptop by cleaning up the medicine before any damage occurred.
Possibly poking holes in Jenelle’s story, the officer reports he did not see any medicine on her or the computer.
While Barbara told police she did not want to press charges against her daughter, Jenelle wasn’t feeling so charitable and “swore she would file a simple assault charge against Barbara.” In the end – after wasting law enforcement’s time – Jenelle decided she wouldn’t file charges after all and no arrests were made. Yeah, if Barbara had been arrested who would take care of Jace?

Whose version of events do you believe, Barbara’s or Jenelle’s? Is Jenelle totally out of control and in need of serious help justified in being so upset with her mom?
