On last night’s episode of Project Runway the designers made men’s wear for up and coming rock group, The Sheepdogs. Unfortunately ¾ of the designers had never sewn or cut a pattern before, let alone made men’s wear, and the other ¼ had only one concept of rock ‘n roll and that era ended before most of them were born!
Heidi Klum meets the designers on the runway and announces: “Image is everything!” before sending them on their way to meet Tim Gunn. When they arrive, Peter Butler, consulting stylist of Garnier is there with Tim. Apparently Garnier held a contest with Rolling Stone Magazine to find the next great, unsigned band. The winning band, The Sheepdogs, will be the models for this challenge and the designers have to help this band create a new image while also keeping it true to the musicians’ style. Did I mention they are ALL men?!

After Rob and his partner Cheryl Burke were placed in the bottom three Tuesday night, an outraged Kourtney Tweeted: “There is NO way Rob Kardashian was trending worldwide last night and in the bottom 3. Impossible!” Kourtney, then demanded to know: “HOW IS ELISABETTA SAFE?!??! HOW?! Seriously!!!” And sister Khloe chimed in with “Agreed! So odd!”
Apparently Kourtney and Khloe believed Elisabetta should be in the bottom three instead of their younger brother, Rob, you know, because Rob’s 16 points score was much better from Elisabetta’s 15. Perhaps there is some merit to the rumors that Rob has been slacking off something major during dance practice!
When a fan Tweeted Khloe: “Rob did much better then Elisabetta Canalis, just my opinion…Shouldnt b in the bottom 3,” Khloe responded with: “Shows are rigged all the time.” Um… you mean reality TV isn’t 100% true all of the time; they never “manufacture” drama?!
Kim also got in on the action, Tweeting: “This just can’t be! Rob in the bottom 3! This is impossible! He did soooo good!!!!”
The Kardashians implored their fans (and surprisingly they have many) to vote for Rob and after it was announced that he was safe, Khloe suddenly started singing a different tune, Tweeting: “Honestly I didn’t think anyone of those people should have been in the bottom 3 sucks…..” Hopefully Rob will redeem himself next week so we are spared another bout of the Kardashian Mafia.
Sadly, for Elisabetta none of the Kardashians issued her an apology after they snarked on her dancing! Good thing as the HollywoodLife blog is reporting today that Elisabetta could care less about the harsh comments by the Kardashians!
“Elisabetta couldn’t care less about what the Kardashian sisters said about her. She is refusing to go down to their level. She is taking the show as a fun experience to build off of and get more opportunities in her career. She wants to have fun, not scandal and cattiness,” said a source.
The insider also goes on to diss Rob: “Rob is a bit of a diva, and he should know that he is on the show only because of his sisters, the producers are really only interested in having them in the audience for the potential ratings they bring to the show.” Ouch!
In other Dancing With The Stars news the list of Bravo reality stars desperate to dance is growing as Real Housewives of Atlanta‘s NeNe Leakes revealed she is itching to strap on her dancing shoes!
In a recent interview with Access Hollywood, NeNe commented: “I think would be good on ‘Dancing with The Stars.’ If nothing else I would be entertaining. They wouldn’t take their eyes off me, girl!” She then jumped up and gave hostess Kit Hoover a demonstration of her dancing skills – which left much to be desired! One would think NeNe’s past as an exotic dancer would have given her a few more moves!
Are you shocked that Kourtney and Khloe would call out Elisabetta’s dancing on Twitter? Do you think they owe Elisabetta an apology for their comments? Would you watch NeNe on DWTS?

16 and Pregnantstar Ebony Jackson is telling her side of the story after CPS took her daughter away this week. The former MTV star opens up about her depression and suicidal thoughts after suffering a miscarriage.
The problems for Ebony began this week after cops raided the home she shares with her husband Josh Rendon following an anonymous complaint. What they discovered was pretty horrific. The police report reveals cops found “human and dog feces on the floors, walls, and clothing” in every room of the house. Their house was also “full of flies and in some areas, maggots.”
As a result, the couple’s 2-year-old daughter Jocelyn was taken away by CPS and now remains in temporary foster care, while Ebony and Josh were arrested on charges of endangering the welfare of a minorand possession of drug paraphernalia.
In an interview with the HollyBaby blog, Ebony, 20, opens up about her struggles. “I had been suffering with depression. I lost a kid, so I’ve been going through my own personal problems and so I haven’t been able to be the wife, mom that I’m supposed to be,” she says. “Neither of us wanted any of this to happen… One of my old friends [called us in] and she reported a lot of false things.”
“We never have our house that dirty,” adds Ebony, blaming the “dog feces” mess on the fact that puppies were just born in her home. “Our daughter never lives like that. Our daughter is always taken care of. She will always be taken care of. Our daughter always comes first in our lives and I don’t want anyone to think that we are just a couple of drug heads because we’re not.”
When asked to explain the synthetic marijuana that was found in their home, Ebony takes full responsibility for it. “It was mine,” says Ebony. “It had nothing to do with Josh. It was all mine and I was just doing it to self harm … after the loss of my son, I just lost him two months ago.”
Ebony goes on to reveal that her emotional issues were triggered by the loss of an unborn son. “I’ve been depressed, anxious, dealing with the loss of [the baby]. I was already hospitalized at the beginning of June — for suicide prevention,” she said going on to add that she’s looking to get help now. “I’m going to go back to therapy to find the right depression medication… I just want to let all of our fans know we are sorry for letting them down and for letting Jocelyn down.”
Unfortunately for Ebony, there might be more trouble coming her way. TMZ is reporting this morning that Josh is now at risk of getting kicked out of the military.
Josh, who is a member of the Air Force, is currently under investigation in relation to his arrest this week. A rep for Little Rock Air Force Base confirms Josh could indeed be discharged.
Even worse, if Josh is discharged, he and Ebony will lose their home as they currently live on the base.
TELL US: THOUGHTS ON EBONY’S COMMENTS? IS THERE ANY JUSTIFICATION FOR THE CONDITION OF THE HOME? SHOULD JOSH BE DISCHARGED?

Taylor Armstrongis revealing all in a sit-down interview with Entertainment Tonight.
Over a month after the tragic suicide of her estranged husband Russell Armstrong, the Real Housewives of Beverly Hillsstar sat down with ET’s Nancy O’Dell. Taylor opened up on her marriage to Russell, details the abuse she experienced as well as the way she broke the news of Russell’s passing to their daughter Kennedy.
First Taylor, 40, describes what she says was the first time Russell, 47, abused her: “The first time he ever really harmed me physically, I was pregnant with Kennedy and he grabbed me by the throat and held me up against a wall,” she says. The reason for that abuse? He did not like the way she made pizza for his sons. “He grabbed me by the neck and shoved me up against the wall and he said, ‘If you ever make my children a pizza without a vegetable again, I’ll kill you…I saw his ability to go from zero to 60 that quickly.”
Following that first incident, the abuse continued on in her 6-year marriage. “You live your life constantly on eggshells waiting for the other shoe to drop,” Taylor tells Nancy. “You don’t know if you’re going to talk to your girlfriend too long at dinner and that’s going to cause someone to fly into a rage.”
She also states Russell was usually careful in the way he abused her, trying not to leave visible marks.”He would grab me by one side of the hair on my head and bang the other side of my head against the car,” she discloses adding that these would leave knots in her scalp. She cries as she recounts, “He would say to me, ‘I’m afraid I’m going to kill you one day.'”
According to Taylor, Russell abused her about 20 times throughout their marriage, citing the last time (the same incident in which she took photos at the hospital) was one of the most brutal attacks. Taylor says Russell punched her in the eye after she came back home from filming her birthday party in Las Vegas. He had accused her of ignoring him and seeing another man. Taylor states she felt her “eyeball shift.”
After landing in the hospital, she states Russell told her to tell doctors 5-year-old Kennedy accidentally kicked her in the eye with her shoe. Taylor also adds that Russell was with her while she checked into the hospital and talked to doctors. She adds that the doctors were suspicious but never called the cops.
Following the final incident, Russell finally realized just how severe their problem was according to Taylor. “When I finally showed him the MRI he just put it down and started to cry. And I think it was him having to come to terms with the fact that this had gone on for too long, and that this time he really could’ve hurt me beyond what could’ve been repaired.”
Taylor goes on to reveal how she broke the horrible news of Russell’s death to Kennedy. “I just told her that daddy got sick and he died … ,” said Taylor adding she told the 5-year-old that “we could pick a star in the sky and it could be daddy, and that she could talk to him every night.”
As for why she’s going public with her story, Taylor reveals she’s doing it in hopes that she can help other women experiencing the same thing. When asked why she never called cops during the abuse, she states she never wanted Russell to go to jail. “I never wanted to call the police because I didn’t want him to go to jail. I loved him. And he would say ‘If you call the police, they’re going to send me to jail. And who’s going to take care of Kennedy? Who’s going to take care of you?'”
As for the criticism that Russell is no longer here to defend himself, Taylor responds: “I would say that they’re right Unfortunately. He is not here. And I’m mourning the loss of him if not more than anyone.” She adds, “But at the same time, I’ve put myself second in other to protect him and he doesn’t need my protection anymore. But there are a lot of women in this world that probably do. So I have to fight for the living now.”
And just this Wednesday, Russell’s lawyer Ronald Richards claimed Taylor’s abuse photos were phony and that the injuries were not inflicted by Russell. “If Mr. Armstrong was the cause of those injuries he would have been arrested and prosecuted,” Ronald told TMZ adding that the injuries may have been from plastic surgery and noting that Taylor had not filed a police report.
Those close to Taylor however insist the pictures are very real and that she has others that make R&B star Rihanna‘s battered face “look like child’s play.”
Taylor is set to appear on the Dr. Phil Show today to further discuss things and try to get help for coping with this tragedy. Part of the ET interview is below –
TELL US – THOUGHTS ON TAYLOR’S INTERVIEW AND THE COMMENTS MADE BY RUSSELL’S ATTORNEY? DO YOU BELIEVE SHE WAS ABUSED OR STILL HAVE YOUR DOUBTS?
For those of you who thought you’d never hear from Jill Zarin again following her departure from Real Housewives of New York, you’re out of luck! Jill is all over the place: in the news, in Lord & Taylor, in some of our undergarments… the drama never ends with the red-headed mama.
In the latest installment of the Jill Zarin gossip brigade, Ramona Singer was possibly the driving force behind Bravo kicking Jill off RHONY!
A source reveals to UsWeekly that Ramona “came to Bravo with a few pals she thought would make good additions. Bravo decided to go with the new girls and not Jill, so Ramona basically ran her off the show.” It has been widely reported that the three new castmates are Carole Radziwill, Heather Thomson, andAviva Drescher. However none of the women are mentioned as being friends or acquaintances of Ramona.
Speaking to The Insider’s Christina McLarty about leaving the show, Jill confirms that Bravo wanted to go with different women. “The what happened is such a long answer,” Jill comments, rolling her eyes, “but basically we were not picked up. The show has gone in a different direction; they’ve added other girls.”
Jill was even more honest in her interview with GMA yesterday regarding the firing. “It was a little jolting. I’ll be honest,” said Jill referring to the call she received last week from Bravo executives confirming that she had been fired. “It didn’t feel good,” she added. “Nobody likes to not be asked back to the party.”
Jill also added that she’s not done with television and is in talks with a variety of networks concerning different projects, although she cannot give any further details at this time.
Ramona denies that she had anything to do with the network firing Jill; explaining “”We can recommend people to come to the show, but it’s not my decision.”
Another insider reveals the remaining ladies will NOT miss Jill. “Jill caused a lot of problems,” an insider reveals. “Her castmates were upset with her, since she’d tweet all these negative things. Karma’s a bitch.”
Thoughts on everyone’s comments? Are you surprised Jill was honest in admitting she was fired? Do you believe Ramona had something to do with Jill getting the axe?
Well, I’m excited to finally report some positive news concerning Teresa Giudice’s finances!
As you recall, on Monday the Real Housewives of New Jersey star’s husband, Joe Giudicewithdrew his bankruptcy filing after controversy over allegations the Giudices had lied about their assets and income at the time of filing. Joe was at risk of facing criminal prosecution related to bankruptcy fraud. Teresa still potentially faces those charges, as she has yet to withdraw her filing, although sources report she is planning to.
Now, onto the positive! In a new interview for PEOPLE, Teresa’s attorney Jim Kridel reports “Teresa and Joe are happy about this,” and Teresa feels ” ‘vindicated’ to be voluntarily paying her remaining debts rather than have them discharged in bankruptcy court. (They will move to settle the case later this week.).” Wait – what?! Did I read that correctly?! Why, yes, yes I did.
Mr Kridel continues “Teresa has always wanted to be able to say that she paid her creditors.” The Giudices however had a hard time doing that as they owed a seemingly insurmountable amount of money related to multiple mortgages on several inner city apartment buildings, bills for building materials, and the balances on their various credit cards which accumulated to about $11M in debt according to their bankruptcy filing.
“Almost all the debt in the bankruptcy was Joe’s debt,” Kridel claims. Apparently, the smaller debts and credit card bills, which totaled around $100,000, were attributed to Teresa, and her lavish spending and out of control need for anything covered in glitter, lace, or marble, who “wanted to pay,” however once the Giudices filed bankruptcy their creditors were not allowed to be paid “preferentially.”
The article explains that as of now several of the banks have been repaid from the sale of the apartment buildings listed as a liability in their bankruptcy filing and Joe has also paid the $586,000 claim against him from his former business partner through a building’s sale; leaving the Giudice’s remaining debts “within a manageable range.”
With her many business ventures (including a make-up line and bottled cocktail) Teresa is no longer completely broke. Teresa “may not be able to pay all [her creditors] with one check, but she can pay them back. She wants to do the right thing,” her lawyer articulates. No word if Joe is currently employed, but at least his wife is bringing home the bacon and attempting to spend it wisely!
According to Kridel, who gave this interview with dollar signs in his eyes, “The cost of litigation might exceed what she owes.” Well, hopefully they won’t default on that bill…
Do you believe Teresa that she wants to repay her debts? Are you as shocked as I am that she supposedly wants to do the right thing? If Teresa does, in fact, repay her creditors the old-fashioned way would this give you a more positive opinion of her?
