In case you’re not aware by now, Nene Leakes and Star Jones will both be appearing on the upcoming season of the Celebrity Apprentice, and there is no love lost between the two.

In fact, Nene, star of the Real Housewives of Atlanta, has slammed Star in multiple interviews, recently stating she “wouldn’t spit on Star if she was on fire.” While Donald Trump revealed during an appearance on the Jimmy Fallon Show that things turned physical between two castmates on the show, referencing Nene and Star.

Fast forward to today and a new report by Popeater reveals things got so bad that Star has had to hire security to keep Nene away from her.

“NeNe is coming unhinged,” a source close to Star tells Popeater adding that she even made LaToya Jackson cry and got in the face of singing legend Dionne Warwick.

The source adds that the issue is with Nene, who has also been shown getting into multiple fights with her RHOA castmates. “Clearly, she can’t get along with women, especially other black women. She is losing it.”

And while Nene continues to trash Star in the press, the source adds that Star is trying to rise above the negativity. Star however still feels that Nene could be a physical threat to her, which has led to her hiring her own private security guards.

“Star is a real celebrity, not some cheap reality star who is enjoying 15 minute of fame,” the friend says. “She’s a lawyer and a lady. NeNe can say what she wants about Star, but she doesn’t care now that she knows she’s safe.”

As for the Donald, he is reportedly excited at what is being called the “most dramatic season of ‘The Apprentice’ ever.” The source adds, “Donald Trump loved it. He’s no fool. He knows that this sort of drama is TV gold.”

Meanwhile, part 1 of the RHOA reunion airs this Sunday on Bravo, and below is a preview clip.

While the sixth season of the Real Housewives of Orange County has yet to air, one of the new housewives, Peggy Tanous, is already making headlines for the wrong reasons.

According to the OC Register, Peggy recently defaulted on her home, pictured below.

The home, which was purchased in 2006 for $1,379,000, has a default notice dated Nov. 16, 2010, with records showing the amount in default at $190,713. The loan was for $1 million.

Peggy, a 41-year-old former bikini model and stay-at-home mom, is married to Micah Tanous, who is described as an Internet marketing entrepreneur. Oddly enough, the couple is friends with Jim and Alexis Bellino, who are also currently facing some home loan troubles of their own.

If you recall, the Bellinos also defaulted on their home loan twice last year which led to a foreclosure and some auction dates which Jim and his lawyer were able to get postponed.

The latest auction date, which was set for Feb. 10, did not take place as lender JPMorgan Chase simply canceled the auction and the foreclosure proceedings. Michael York, a lawyer for the Bellinos reveals they were able to come to a deal with Chase.

As for what happens next, the 6-bedroom house is still being offered as a short sale, or for less than what is owed on the loan, with a asking price of $3,395,000.  The listing details show that the Bellinos have put over $6 million into the home.

And despite the fact that his clients defaulted on a home loan twice and were in foreclosure, York denies Alexis and Jim are having any financial problems in the statement below given to the OC Register.

“Some media reports have speculated that Mr. and Mrs. Bellino are having financial problems, which have resulted in issues between them and Chase. The speculation is inaccurate. Mr. and Mrs. Bellino do not have and have never had financial problems, and the issues between them and Chase are due to good business decisions that Mr. and Mrs. Bellino have made, not financial problems.”

Right… The Real Housewives of OC – Like the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, but without all the money.

Days after the UsWeekly cover story came out revealing that Brad Womack proposed to his on and off girlfriend of 8 years just weeks before going to film the Bachelor, more details are now coming out about the scandal.

Laurel Kagay, a 31-year-old spa owner from Austin, Texas, questions Brad’s sincerity in the mag, citing the fact that Brad not only proposed to her weeks before filming the current season, but that he also sent her messages during and after filming the show.

Laurel reveals that just days after proposing to her last July, Brad sent her the following text message revealing the Bachelor producers had asked him back on the show -

“Please don’t say a single word about this. The executive producers from The Bachelor just called. They want me to do the show again. This season. Haven’t discussed $ but it’d be a lot…”

Brad contacted Laurel two weeks later and wrote -

“I won’t kill u w texts but please be there for me roo. This isn’t a game, this isn’t a control issue, it’s just me getting my ass kicked. Please babe; please just let me know you’re there… Please say hi. Rough day Laurel… I wish you’d just marry me. No matter haw crazy we are, we’re meant. Marry me.”

One of the most shocking parts of the story is that fact that despite beginning filming the Bachelor in September, Brad sent Laurel the following message on Sept. 18: “Just wish you would let me in your life.” It didn’t end there as another message was sent to Laurel on Nov. 2 via an email in which he claimed to be “thinking” of her.

As for Brad’s claims that he had 3 years of intensive therapy to get over his commitment issues, Laurel states, “It was probably closer to three months” over a three year period adding that “he never stuck with it.”

“Before she decides to marry Brad, she needs to know where his head and heart are,” Laurel warns Brad’s final pick. “I’m sure the girl would want to know that he was proposing to another woman right before he started taping the show.”

Below are some more photos of Laurel.

Despite having a successful spin off show, a best-selling book, and multiple endorsements, it seems Bethenny Frankel is still striving for more.

In a new interview with Popeater, the popular Bravo star reveals her next goal would be to conquer daytime television via her own talk show!

“I would like a daytime talk show because my conversation with my fans right now is through social networking, and my TV show communicates what I’m doing, but it isn’t really a dialogue or a conversation,” she told PopEater. “Most of my business wishes come true.”

Bethenny also discussed the upcoming Bethenny Ever After, set to debut Feb. 28. “It’s about the texture of marriage and bringing together Venus and Mars, which is what my husband and I are. We’re from two different planets. And he’s religious, and I practice yoga. He wants to be around his parents all the time, and I like to be alone and just a lot of crazy things. It’s really probably the only real reality show. It’s a reality sitcom,” she said.

Bethenny adds that her third book, ‘A Place of Yes,’ will be released March 22. It “is about how I got to where I am in my life now, in career and in family and the 10 rules to getting there.”

In other news, Kelly Bensimon, star of the Real Housewives of NYC, is now giving advise to Lindsay Lohan, who recently received a lot of criticism for wearing the above skintight dress to court this week, something many deemed inappropriate.

“Lindsay dressed completely and utterly inappropriately,” Kelly tells HollywoodLife. “You should dress like you are going to a funeral, not a club.”

Oh but it gets better as Kelly accuses Lindsay of being an attention whore. “I think Lindsay is addicted to attention — media attention — and that’s what’s motivating her,” said Kelly adding that when she had to go to court two years ago (to face assault charges against her ex-boyfriend), she “dressed in all black and I slipped into the court house because I didn’t want to be seen.” And the lols simply write themselves.

Above are two photos of Kelly from her court visits in 2009. She donned the black attire for the first visit in March, and the dress on the right for her other visit in June.

Khloe Kardashian and Lamar Odom continue to build their mini empire as the two released a sexy new video to promote their new unisex fragrance, Unbreakable.

The couple, who is currently filming a newlyweds type spinoff reality show for the E! network, can be seen not wearing any clothes in the clip, while wrapped around each other and describing the sheer, sexy nature of their new scent. Lamar describes the scent as “that perfect mix of masculine and feminine.”

In other news,  Kim Kardashian continues her attempt at world domination by gracing yet another major magazine cover. This time around, it is for Harper’s Bazaar and she keeps her clothes on.

In the mag, Kim interviews Elizabeth Taylor, someone whom she calls one of her “all time favorite Hollywood style icons.”

Kim whined complained to the mag about having to fight the public perception that she is a “whore.”  “What if I want to go on a date with someone in New York, and then I come home to L.A. and I go on a date?” Kim, 30, pondered.  “I could have slept with none of them, but I would be known as being a ‘slore’: a slut and a w—e,” she declared.

It didn’t end there as Kim also denied capitalizing off her sex tape, you know, the one that got her a reality show on E! and made her uber famous.  “I never made a business off of the tape,” Kim claimed. “I made a business off my family and our TV show. Before the tape came out, we were in the works to do our TV show, but people don’t know that.”

She also discussed her former BFF Paris Hilton, revealing they no longer talk. “We don’t really talk. As I always say, everyone comes into your life for a reason, a season, or a lifetime. And she was in my life for a long time.”  She adds, “There comes a point in life where you just grow apart and you realise you’re not as similar as you thought. And I never run into her anywhere. Isn’t that so weird?”

It seems Taylor Armstrong is starting to feel the heat following weeks and weeks of backlash from fans for her behavior on the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.

Taylor has been blamed for causing the two major fights that took place on the show this season, including the season ending fight between sisters Kim & Kyle Richards.

In a recent interview with PEOPLE magazine, Taylor reveals being on reality television is harder than she imagined. “It’s not easy having your life on television for people to judge you and feel like they can evaluate your life because you put it out there,” she said. “It’s been a little harder than I thought. Sometimes people aren’t very kind.”  And we wonder if “some people” would include herself.

As for Taylor’s regrets on the show, she is now singing a completely different tune than the one she arrogantly sang on the reunion show weeks ago when she took numerous cheap shots at Kim.

“I feel pretty good about everything – except my conflict with Kim,” said Taylor. “I wasn’t really aware that she was going through as many personal challenges as she was, because I wasn’t really privy to that. So I feel bad about our conflicts. I wish I’d known then what I know now. But it’s life. So I wish her the best and I’m absolutely here if she needs anything.”

Taylor also pretends reveals she’s uncertain if she’ll return for a second season. “Every other day I think, ‘I just want to go back to being a snack mom at school,’ ” she said. “Back then my biggest concern in my week was whether I had to be room mom. So we’ll see.” Oh poor Taylor. Poor poor Taylor.

In other BH news, TMZ is reporting the seemingly never ending divorce proceedings between Camille Grammer and Kelsey Grammer has finally ended today. A judge in L.A. County Superior Court signed the divorce decree. The Grammers were able to come to a divorce agreement after Kelsey agreed to post $2.3 million, protecting Camille’s pension rights against any new spouse.

Camille released the following statement – “I have a great many mixed feelings about today — I’m sad for what was, yet excited about the road ahead… What I most hope is that Kelsey and I can improve our communications and truly co-parent our two wonderful children, and I wish Kelsey and Kayte love and happiness in their new marriage.”

With this divorce granted, Kelsey is now free to marry his fiance Kayte Walsh at the end of this month, as planned.

And finally, a youtube user, RealCityHousewife, created the following video below, in what can only be described as the most awesome Housewives video ever. Enjoy -

According to a new report, Slade Smiley, boyfriend/rumored fiance of Gretchen Rossi, is still owing loads of child support while also driving on a suspended license.

A new report by MostWantedDeadBeats website via the OC Register states that Slade, 42, is now owing $138,850 in child support debts, a rapid increase from the previous amount of $84,962, due to interest owed on arrears in addition to the piling unpaid support.

Slade, an extra on the Real Housewives of Orange County, was scheduled to appear in a Los Angeles courtroom yesterday to address the payments owed to his ex-girlfriend and mother of his son Grayson Smiley, Michelle Arroyo. It is however uncertain if the hearing took place as Michelle notified the courts that Grayson was sick and in the hospital. Grayson suffers from a rare form of brain cancer.

It gets even worse as court documents show Slade’s driver’s license was suspended on Jan. 8 due to the delinquent child support.

This however hasn’t prevented Slade from driving as the OC Register notes he has been spotted driving around Costa Mesa, where he lives with Gretchen, in a powder-blue Mercedes Benz and a black Range Rover.

A judge also recently ordered Slade to seek work outside of the entertainment/TV industry due to his claims that he has been unable to earn money through those ventures for extended periods of time. Though it seems Slade has yet to find a job as of today.

It was reported Slade admitted in court last May that he had received some payments for his appearance on the OC Housewives, but had the funds paid to Gretchen and then re-directed to him to avoid mandatory deductions.

Gretchen sure knows how to pick them.

In other OC news, it seems OC wild teens Raquel and Alexa Curtin have yet to curb their crazy ways. Months ago, theDirty website posted some risque photos of Lynn Curtin’s daughters, while also reporting the underage girls are always drinking and are heavy into the rave scene. Which brings us to a very important question – Raves still exist?

Other readers allege the girls are also into drugs. Some of the photos are posted below but these aren’t leaked photos as Raquel’s myspace page proudly displays one of the pics as her profile photo. As we have reported, Lynn is no longer a cast member on the upcoming season of the OC Housewives, set to premiere Mar. 6.

With only six episodes into the third season of the mega hit show the Jersey Shore, MTV has now released a new 3 minute trailer, showing us what is to come the remainder of this season.

And judging from the footage, it’s no wonder MTV has decided to bring this cast back for a 4th season! The trailer shows even more volatile and violent fights between lovebirds Sammi and Ronnie, and yes their fights get even worse. We also see The Instigation Situation doing what he does best which is instigating some of those fights, while the rest of the cast continues to fistpump and drink.

In other Shore news, JWoww has now followed in the footsteps of some of her castmates by also releasing her own book. And get this, it is a dating book titled ‘The Rules According to JWoww.’

According to Jwoww gives us an intimate look into the loves, losses, and lessons she’s learned since appearing on the hit show.  The book is also filled with “how-to” tips for landing the perfect guy, something she put together by doing in-depth research while watching the behavior of the guys in the shore house.  Below are some tips from JWoww’s new book via the HollywoodLife -

  • Men love a lady who has skills: Let’s be honest — guys say they’re looking for someone pure and respectable to bring home to Mama, but they’re secretly praying she’s a f*****g nympho with a bachelor’s degree in banking.
  • Never leave home without condoms, your cell phone, cash and a change of panties.
  • “Sloppy drunk” is not a good look on anyone: You will most likely do something-or somebody-that you’ll regret in the morning.

The HollywoodLife also reports JWoww is a graduate of New York Institute of Technology with two degrees, one in computer programming and a BFA in fine arts and animation.

And finally, airing tonight on MTV at 10/9c is an all new episode of the Jersey Shore. On the 7th episode this season, Ronnie and Sam end their tumultuous relationship with a nasty breakup that prompts Ronnie to destroy all of Sam’s belongings. Later, she considers leaving the shore for good.
