Kelly K Bensimon

Ever since the infamous meltdown of Kelly Bensimon (pictured above on May 29th) on the Real Housewives of New York City, all of the housewives on the trip with her have all echoed the same sentiments, which is that her meltdown or “nervous breakthrough” was much worse than what was actually shown on TV.

We also blogged a week ago that we would secretly love to see the unedited footage of Kelly from the St. John trip, well we don’t have the video footage, but we do have the next best thing – a new article from UsWeekly magazine which gives us more details on what happened with Kelly.

1) According to UsWeekly, the real hysterics happened later that night, and wasn’t taped or televised. Sonja Morgan tells the mag, “I took Kelly’s hand and said, ‘Do you think this is normal? I tried to calm her.”

2) The “fight” continued off camera with a screaming match between Kelly and Bethenny. There was a lot of name calling, with “bitch” being the epithet of choice, until Kelly finally fled to her room at 11:30 pm.

3) The other housewives stuck together and rehashed the events until about 3 am.

4) The producers on the other hand had to calm Kelly. “She was on her bed, rocking back and forth,” says a show source. “She kept saying she thought Bethenny was going to kill her. It went on for hours!”

5) The producers, who decided Kelly wasn’t in the mind-set to film, decided to send her home. They booked her an 8 am flight home to NYC.

6) “No one thought she was stable,” says the source. Another insider suggests her outbursts were a result of mixing Valium with alcohol, but a source close to Kelly denies the claim to UsWeekly.

And there you have it folks. While Kelly’s behavior on the show is alarming, her behavior off the show is what continues to do her in. First she accused Bethenny of exploiting her father’s death for ratings during a night of posting nonsensical rants on her twitter page, and now she has decided to start an anti bullying campaign because her behavior on the show was a result of “systematic bullying.”

Here’s what Kelly wrote in her blog after the airing of the last episode -

“Stop systematic bullying! Tell a teacher, friend, or adult. Everyone deserves to be loved. Four against one is never OK.”

It however doesn’t end there. Kelly, who appeared to be flattered by being on the cover of UsWeekly, tweeted the following a few days ago, after the issue came out -

kk-twitpicKelly wrote under the pic - “Cover of us! Wow”

Perhaps Kelly should have taken the time to read the cover and the story before tweeting. But then again, she probably did read the story and delusion-ally thought it was a flattering piece.

Another issue with Kelly’s behavior on and off the show is her kids. Kelly has two daughters (Sea, 12, and Teddy, 9). If she really does have a mental problem, should her ex, Gilles Bensimon, be worried? Should he be stepping in? Kelly was also arrested for physically assaulting her ex-boyfriend last year.

TELL US – WHAT DO YOU THINK OF KELLY’S BEHAVIOR ON AND OFF THE SHOW? SHOULD HER EX BE WORRIED?

basketball wives suzieBASKETBALL WIVES SANDRA

More drama for Basketball Wives! The latest is a new report that reveals cast member Suzie Ketcham was arrested during the recent Saturday taping of the reunion show.

According to RadarOnline, the drama started when “The show was taping and then the cast was told, ‘We have a surprise guest,” said a source.

That surprise guest ended being Sandra Lopez aka Plastic Surgery. Yes Sandra is the same alleged “groupie” who got a drink thrown in her face by Suzie during an earlier episode of the show this season. “Suzie got really p—– off and just got up and left, but not soon after, she came back with a huge bucket of water and threw it at Sandra.”

Things then took an uglier turn when “Sandra tried to run away, but in the process, she slipped in the water and fell,” recalled the insider.

“The whole audience gasped,” as Sandra was seriously hurt. Paramedics were called and Sandra was treated in front of a studio audience. Police were also called and the responding officers arrested Suzie and took her into custody for questioning. Sandra apparently wants charges filed against Suzie, who is the ex of NBA player Michael Olowokandi and also a mother of two.

The reunion show is set to air June 20th on VH1.

LuAnn video shoot

Move over Madonna Lady Gaga No one! There’s a new pop icon on the scene! The long anticipated and highly awaited crap music video by the one and only Countess has arrived!

The video of the classic “Money Can’t Buy You Class” hit the web on Friday, and according to LuAnn de Lesseps of the Real Housewives of New York City, the video was “leaked.”

LuAnn, 44,  tweeted on Friday, “Well the cats out of the bag! Someone leaked my video!” Sure they did Countess. In the video, which was shot last month, LuAnn can be seen surrounded by a fleet of chiseled eye candy.

“There’s not really dancing,” said LuAnn of the video concept. “I just have very good looking men standing around. And it’s about how money can’t buy you class, so I’m taking money out of their pockets and throwing it onto the floor.”

The exclusive and not heavily air brushed video of LuAnn is below! Enjoy at your own risk.

VH1 Shows - Shaunie O'Neal, Chilli, and Brandy

Good news for VH1 fans, the network has decided to renew some of their Sunday night hit shows for a second season.

VH1 announced this week that it has renewed Basketball Wives, What Chilli Wants, and Brandy & Ray J: A Family Business for a season two. The shows have all proven to be a big hit for the network. Part of the press release is below -

“VH1 announced today that its latest hit series Brandy & Ray J: A Family Business, Basketball Wives and What Chilli Wants have all been picked up for second seasons.”

“VH1 viewers connected strongly with these three new series this year, and we’re so happy that we can continue to share these real-life stories from the worlds of music and celebrity. Will Chilli really ever let down her guard in her quest for love? How well will Brandy and Ray J step up in their family business? And how will the Basketball Wives move forward in their complicated lives? We’re looking forward to answering those questions in their next cycles,” said Jeff Olde, Executive Vice President, Original Programming & Production, VH1.”

The finales of Basketball Wives and What Chilli Wants airs tonight at 10PM and 10:30PM, respectively. Brandy & Ray J: A Family Business will finale on Sunday, June 27 at 9PM. A reunion is also being filmed for the Basketball Wives, and that will air Sunday, June 20 at 10PM.

Thoughts on the shows: Basketball Wiveshas been pretty interesting to watch. It rivals the drama of the Bravo Housewives’ franchises. Similar to Bravo Housewives, the show will also be expanding and Football Wives is set to debut sometime this year. The only bad thing about this show is there are really no likable characters. Evelyn and Jennifer are both drama queens who need to get off their holier than thou attitudes. Evelyn spent most of the season picking on Royce only to have nude photos of her leaked online. I can’t decide if I like Suzie or find her annoying, Royce is okay, and I guess I actually like Gloria and her FU attitude.

What Chilli WantsI was a bit surprised to see Chilli is somewhat of a prima donna. I thought she was over the top mean to some of her dates at times. Tionna Smalls is also a bit annoying to watch, and borderline obnoxious at times. While Chilli can be a handful at times, Tionna needs to learn how to be professional at all times and learn how to deal with personalities like Chilli if she wants to do this professionally. It’s however nice to see Chilli finally connect with Farmer D and Bill. Wonder who she will pick.

Brandy & Ray J: A Family Business – When I first heard of this show, I was certain it was going to be a boring show, but I’ve been quite surprised at how interesting it has been. I think the reason the show has been great is because the family was very open and honest about their lives. Letting the viewers in on the real drama going on in the family has made for great TV.

It seems Gretchen Rossi, star of the Real Housewives of Orange County is sticking by her man’s side no matter what.

The latest in the never ending drama of Slade Smiley’s child support case is a new report detailing what took place during Slade’s hearing on Friday. RadarOnline reports that Slade, 41, owes between $84,962 and $110,000 in back child support to Michelle Arroyo, mother of his son Grayson Arroyo-Smiley, 10, who suffers from a rare form of brain cancer.

The drama ensued when Gretchen’s ex-boyfriend Jay Photoglou, who is not a stalker by any means, decided to show up to the court hearing for some strange reason.  Is it safe to assume Jay has no job and has lots of free time to show up to court cases that have absolutely nothing to do with him? This made Slade furious and authorities had to step in to keep the parties separate.

Slade is then said to have asked the judge to have Jay removed the courtroom, which led to all parties not directly involved in the case being asked to leave court, including Gretchen.

And according to the OC Register, Slade who is said to be a former insurance salesman and male model, admitted in court he had received some payments for this appearance on the OC Housewives.  This is despite Slade’s previous claims that he had zero income and zero expenses.  Slade also admitted he had the funds paid to Gretchen and then re-directed to him to avoid mandatory deductions.

Slade has asked the Judge to reduce his child support payments, and is due back in Court in September.

Heidi Montag and hubby of just a year, Spencer Pratt, have called it quits.

According to TMZ, Heidi has left her controlling husband. “Heidi is looking to move out due to all the fake bad press that Spencer controls,” confirms a rep for Heidi, 23. “She’s tired of it and is looking for a place and wants to focus on her acting career.”

Another source close to the couple tells TMZ the tension in the relationship the Hills’ stars has been building for a while now … “It wasn’t just a sudden thing.”

And as for the reason for the split? Well, sources tell TMZ it is because Heidi felt she was being held hostage after Spencer alienated her from all her friends and family. Apparently, the straw that broke the camel’s back was when Spencer decided to call the cops on Heidi’s mom just earlier this month, when she showed up to their house unannounced.

Now the question on my mind and I’m sure also on the minds of other readers is that is this real or is this just another one of their attention whoring publicity stunts? To put things into context, this is the same couple who called the cops on Heidi’s mother just two weeks ago, and decided having 10 surgeries in one day was a good way to garner publicity.

Plus get this, Heidi has allegedly moved out of her house with Spencer, and is moving in with her friend Jennifer Bunney. The shocker is however that Heidi and Jennifer have already secured a deal for a reality show about their lives and friendship.

“Heidi and I are moving into a Malibu beach house this summer,” said Jennifer to RadarOnline. “We’re really excited to do girly things and show people who we really are and that we’re really fun, sweet and loyal girls.”

So there you have it folks, Heidi announces her split from Spencer and already has a reality show in the works that will chronicle her new life without Spencer. Something about this is starting to smell like another one of their publicity stunts, but let’s all hope she has really left the douchebag known as Spencer Pratt.

TELL US: DO YOU THINK THIS IS REAL OR JUST A PUBLICITY STUNT?

The bad news for the Real Housewives of New York City’s producers? There was no way in heck they could top the insanity drama of last week’s episode. The good news? Even without topping last week’s drama, last night’s show was still pretty darn great.

Now on to this week’s recap. It’s the night after the storm, and we find out Kelly has departed early after her “nervous breakthrough.” The ladies seem both tired and very relieved that Hurricane Kelly has passed through. Ramona shares that one of Kelly’s personalities Kelly left her a sweet note.

What we didn’t see on TV was that the night before (the same night Kelly went bat sh*t crazy that is) Ramona placed a call to Jill letting her know what had happened with Kelly, and asked Jill, who she believed was good friends with Kelly, to try to meet Kelly at the airport in NYC and be there for her. Bethenny also reveals in her Bravo blog that she talked to Jill that night out of concern for Kelly. According to both Bethenny and Ramona, Jill showed very little concern for Kelly. Apparently she was more preoccupied with making her own dramatic surprise entrance. Here’s what Bethenny wrote in her blog about Jill last week -

“Jill came to St. John because she wanted a grand entrance and to ensure that she wasn’t absent in three episodes. Her excuse that she came to see me was laughable. St. John is very difficult to get to and I literally lived a block away from her. Stopping by my building would have been infinitely easier. You all know the real story there.”

Ramona also chimes in this week that Jill literally lives minutes away from Bethenny, so we can scratch out wanting to make up with Bethenny from Jill’s reasons for showing up unannounced. And how interesting is it that Jill has said on more than one occasion that her reason for not wanting to make up with Bethenny was because she did not want to do it on camera. Guess she forgot the camera crews tagged along to St. Johns. Plus didn’t Jill also proclaim in an earlier episode, when Ramona tried to set up a meeting between she and Bethenny, that she hated being ambushed? So why ambush Bethenny and Alex on their trip? Hmm, things that make you wonder.

Back to the episode. The ladies are getting manis and pedis and Jill shows up. “Hiiiiiiiii,” says Jill, doing her best Kelly impersonation. The ladies are not happy and can’t even hide their displeasure at Jill’s arrival. We have some very awkward silences and a shaky Alex. I must say, I thought Alex’s and the other housewives’ reaction was a bit dramatic, but then again, you have to put it all into context. They are still recovering from Hurricane Kelly, and according to all the ladies on the trip, what we saw on TV was a very tame edited version of what really took place with Kelly. Still, must say I was a bit surprised they actually kicked Jill out. I really did not expect them to completely shut her down.

Jill is hurt, and even accuses Ramona of choosing Alex over her. Jill tweeted last night, “I could never describe what it felt like. Ramona did not even offer us a glass of water or bathroom after 9 hours to get there. My intentions were for peace. In hindsight I should not have gone.” Ramona gives us a great quote about Jill, “Sometimes she’s not based in reality. I think she’s been hanging out with Kelly too much.” I think Ramona might be onto something.

Jill leaves, and TEAM BRAS (Team Bethenny, Ramona, Alex & Sonja) continue their relaxing vacation. Got the Team BRAS acronym from Simon’s twitter, and yes I’m aware it’s quite corny. But back to the housewives, according to Ramona, the camera interviews from this episode were done a few weeks into the airing of this season. Keep that in mind when you later hear Jill’s comments about wanting to mend her friendship with Bethenny.

Alex and Sonja plan a surprise bridal shower for Bethenny and Ramona. The ladies spring out some sex toys and we find out Ramona and Alex are a bit shy when it comes to the sex toy topic.

Jill, Lulu, and Jennifer decide to meet up with Kelly to discuss the events that took place in St. Johns. I noticed something during this scene, LuAnn seemed very knowledgeable on what really happened during the trip. My guess is Jill filled her in, considering Ramona and Bethenny both acknowledged calling Jill about the events out of concern for Kelly. Hurricane Kelly arrives and begans to tell her own distorted version of the events that took place.
