The finale episode of the Amazing Race season 17 aired last night and for the first time in the show’s history, an all female team won the competition.

Those history making ladies are Doctors Nat Strand, 31, and Kat Chang, 35. Nat and Kat beat out Brook Roberts and Claire Champlin and dating couple Thomas Wolfard and Jill Haney to win the $1 million prize.

During the one hour finale, the three teams had to bungee jump off a giant crane at the Port of Long Beach, decorate a float for the Tournament of Roses parade, and play a trivia contest with veteran game-show host Bob Eubanks.

And also for the first time in the show’s history, the race ended in Los Angeles. “It’s hard to believe, but this is the first time in our series history that we’ve ended the race in Los Angeles. Nothing like maneuvering your way to the finish line through L.A. traffic,” host Phil Keoghan told PEOPLE. “We have one challenge where teams literally have to face their fears and phobias in order to avoid choking with $1 million on the line.”

For this season, the finalists covered four continents, 30 cities and 32,000 miles. “This experience has totally bonded us, and no one will ever understand what we went through except these people,” said Kat to Nat. “You really are my sister, and this is something we’ll share for the rest of our lives,” she added.

The biggest surprise of the night however came in the form of Phil announcing the next season of TAR will be an all-star season! Even better, runners-up Brook and Claire, will be competing in the all-star edition. Other “fan-favorite” teams will include Cowboys Jet and Cord and goth faves Kynt and Vixsin.

The Amazing Race: Unfinished Business” will premiere Sunday, Feb. 20, 2011 on CBS.

The Real Housewives of Atlanta 3

A preview of the 11th episode of the Real Housewives of Atlanta below.

On the new episode titled ‘Contract Player,’ Phaedra invites Dwight over to meet her new baby boy, but the visit turns into a gossip session to catch her up on all the drama surrounding the wives and Dwight fills Phaedra in on a underhanded comment that Cynthia made about Phaedra’s marriage at a recent party.

And in another gab-sesh across town, NeNe meets Kim for lunch where they dish on a “friend contract” that Cynthia has request NeNe enter into. Kim also rehearses for her looming tour, but she’s seemingly more interested in sculpting her body than refining the show. Elsewhere, Sheree prepares to act in a regional play.

The new episode airs tonight at 10/9c on Bravo.

Watch What Happens Live – Bravo announced this week that for the first time in the show’s history, WWHL will air for 5 consecutive nights starting tonight. The ratings for the Bravo late night show has only continued to improve as it now averages 1.3 million viewers per episode.

According to Andy Cohen, the 5 nights airing is more of an experiment.  “We’re doing great on Sundays and Thursdays, and competing very well against some very established shows,” Andy said. “We’re looking to have a little fun for a week. It’s more of a special holiday stunt, but we’re open to anything.”  That is code talk for if the ratings are good, the five nights a week airing might become permanent.

The guests on tonight’s show will be Nene Leakes and Anderson Cooper.

Yet one more Housewives’ bankruptcy story to report.

The latest star to join the exclusive Bravo club is none other than Jim Bellino of the Real Housewives of Orange County.

The OC Register is reporting that just 2 days before his home with wife Alexis Bellino, 32, was scheduled to go on the auction block due to foreclosure, Jim filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection for his company.

Jim is reportedly the president of Global Marine, Inc. — a single-asset real estate corporation. The 7-page document filed Wednesday at U.S. Bankruptcy Court, Central District of California states that “after any exempt property is excluded and administrative expenses paid, there will be no funds available to unsecured creditors.”

So how much exactly does Jim’s company owe? Well that is not yet clear as the bankruptcy filing simply states the estimated number of creditors is between 1 and 49, and the estimated assets of Global Marine, Inc. are between $1,000,001 and $10 million.

The OC Register is also reporting the Bellinos’ auction date on their soon to be foreclosed Newport Beach home has been postponed to Jan. 10.  The reason being due to Jim’s bankruptcy filing.  You can see photos of that home here.

When contacted by the Register on Friday for a comment, Jim said “No comment” and hung up the phone.

Airing last night on Bravo was the 8th episode of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. The episode titled Charity Cases was more on the somber emotional side as we saw a different side to two of the housewives. Though while watching last night, I couldn’t help but experience deja vu as most of the story lines felt a tad familiar. Example, the in-home bikini waxing scene and the charity event being hosted by a housewife with an abusive past ( a la Nene Leakes from RHOA’s second season). I guess it’s the price Bravo has to pay for having as many Housewives franchises as they do. With that said, let’s get right to the recap!

The episode begins with Kyle Richards training for a 69-mile bike ride. We find out it is for a charity cause to raise money for cancer. Kyle is training with her coach who casually mentions that a bikini wax is recommended for bike riding success. No reason is really given other than one does not want to have too much padding down there. Kyle proceeds to get a wax and to put herself at ease, she invites the waxing lady to come do it at her house, in front of her 14-year-old daughter Alexia. And something about this scene, I’m pretty certain another Bravo housewife has also done an in-home bikini waxing. It’s not coming to me right now but I feel like I’ve seen this scene before. Plus I was a bit confused in this scene as it seemed to insinuate Kyle had a lot of ‘padding” down there. Are we to believe Kyle doesn’t wax, shave or nair? Perhaps she just needed to bare it all. Whatever the case, Kyle gets her bikini wax and is now ready to ride!

While her supposed “divorce” from husband Gregg Leakes remains up in the air, Nene Leakes seems more than content with milking the story for all it’s worth.

And why not? After all, Bravo has spent a good portion of the Real Housewives of Atlanta‘s third season focusing on her “divorce” storyline. In a new interview with Access Hollywood, Nene, 42, touches on the divorce drama and had some choice words for her co-star/frenemy Kim Zolciak.

When asked about her current status with Gregg, Nene shared, “Obviously it’s hard, I’ve been with Greg for 14 years. So, its hard, he’s my friend, we have a family, we have a son.”

But don’t you dare think for one second that this marriage might actually have a fighting chance as Nene makes it very clear it could come crashing down at any second. “We’re legally married. We’re in the same home. We’re legally married and that can mean whatever you want it to mean,” she continued. “We’re legally married today, it does not mean I’m [going to be] legally married next week or next month.”

When it came to her costar Kim, Nene didn’t mince her words. “I’m done with Kim. I never have to see her again,” she snapped. “It really doesn’t matter, I’m totally done with Kim, like done.”

Perhaps Nene’s words might have to do with Kim’s comments in her latest Bravo blog. An excerpt is below -

“The next day I called NeNe over to my house for some wine and girl talk. NeNe always keeps me laughing, but it made me furious to hear that, “The jury is still out” as to how my girls will end up when they’re older. Hasn’t her son been to prison? Sorry, Boo, but the JURY HAS SPOKEN! My girls will be fine. “

Moving right along. Nene also appeared on Lopez Tonight during which she revealed she would love to appear on Dancing With The Stars. “Absolutely. They need a black girl like me. They really do,” Nene said. “They need a black girl like me to keep it real on the show.” Nene will be appearing on the next season of Celebrity Apprentice, currently slated to air in March.

Could the Kardashian sisters’ world domination be coming to a close end?

First came that whole Pre-paid Kardashian Kard debacle, followed by an embarrassing charity stunt gone wrong, plus low sales of their new book Kardashian Konfidential, and now a new report that reveals their fashion “empire” is in crisis.

UsWeekly is reporting that the Keeping Up With The Kardashians stars Kim, Kourtney and Khloe’s collaboration with clothing line Bebe is coming to an end.

The reason? Well the unofficial reason rather is simply because the line did not perform as well as Bebe would have liked. Bebe president Emilia Fabricant however put it in nicer terms. “The sisters do still have relevance. We need to move with fashion and we want to be first in the fashion world with everybody else and not fall behind,” Fabricant told WWD. “We are definitely assessing the situation.”

It doesn’t end there as a column in Thursday’s New York Times gave a scathing review of the sisters’ NYC boutique store Dash.

“Dash is a fashion desert, just oodles of drippy cowl necks and embellished cap sleeves and synthetic fibers,” said the article. “Clothes are essentially split into two categories of fit: vacuum-sealed and hot-air balloon.”

The writer Jon Caramanica then added that the overpriced clothes, including an animal print dress for $308 and a hat for $430, seemed questionable at best. “You could wear this look, in the same way you could hire an enthusiastic 5-year-old as your stylist.” Ouch.

And finally, Khloe Kardashian is coming under fire for some comments she made during her recent appearance on Lopez Tonight. “They basically are just raping you in public,” Khloe, 26, complained comparing the airport patdowns to rape. “I got asked the other day, do you want to go for a screening or get padded down,” the reality star said. “I don’t want that X-Ray to see everything, honey!”

According to RadarOnline, victims’ right advocate groups are very unhappy with Khloe’s comments. “I think it was an ill-informed thing for her to say, “ said Jazmin Robles, a community education coordinator with the Santa Barbara Rape Crisis Center,. “It was a very strong comment to make because rape is defined as ‘forceful penetration’ and a lot of young women look up to celebrities like the Kardashians.”

Alexis Neiers

A major break for E! reality star Alexis Neiers.

Following her arrest on Dec. 1 for possession of heroin, the Pretty Wild star was in court yesterday during which she admitted violating her probation terms. If you recall, Alexis, 19, was placed on probation earlier this year for burglarizing Orlando Bloom’s house after serving a 1 month sentence.

Alexis was however able to dodge a bullet as a L.A. County Superior Court judge ordered her to spend one year in a drug treatment program instead of jail.

According to TMZ, Alexis will spend one year in a live-in drug treatment program, with the judge warning her this was the “last time we’re going to have this conversation.”
