Uh oh Jersey Shore, fans could the fifth season be their last? For the guidos and guidettes of Seaside Heights it seems being the drunken party animals embarrassing themselves on television has grown old now that they’ve had a taste of fame and fortune!
HollywoodLife reports that according to a source close to the show the cast members are over it! “The cast just isn’t as close as they once were,” the source reveals. “They are all pursuing their own projects, clothing lines, perfume lines and several of them want their own spinoffs. There’s a lot of competition and they all feel like they’re famous enough in their own rights to continue on without the show.”
“Pauly Dhas been trying to secure his own reality show for a while,” a different source explains. “Mike [The Situation] wants his own show but no one really wants to go forward with it and Snooki and JWoww were trying to get their own show.”
JWoww has already confirmed she is filming a spinoff with BFF Snooki and is hopeful the plot will include them going on a road trip.
Jersey Shore’s Fifth Season airs on January 5th on MTV.
WOULD YOU WATCH ANY OF THE JERSEY SHORE CAST IN THEIR OWN SPINOFF OR SHOULD THE CAST STAY TOGETHER?
While I hope that all RT readers are enjoying a wonderful holiday, Teen Mom alum Amber Portwood spent her Christmas behind bars. It’s much sadder and not nearly as hilarious as these posts should be.
After facing multiple violations, the young mother found herself in jail due to her failure to comply with the terms of her probation. On December 19, Amber was charged with possession as well as reportedly refusing to adhere to a mandatory urine sample.
TMZ.com is reporting that probation officers visited Amber on December 16 for failing to keep a court mandated appointment. An affidavit provided by Anderson, Indiana policeman Sgt. John Branson reveals that Amber was found in a “very groggy” state. Branson continues that officers found a bottle of mixed controlled substance pills for which Amber could not provide prescriptions. Amber cited that “her housekeeper throws all that kind of stuff away.” She’s got a housekeeper?
According to the site, officers discovered “32 Hydrocodone pills, 6 Soma pills, 2 of another muscle relaxer, 3 of a different kind of Hyrdocodone, and then 1 pill they were unable to identify.” Amber remains in custody until her hearing on January 13. MTV, please stop celebritizing these girls’ lives. God knows she’d probably be in a very similar situation if she’d never darkened the door of the network’s season-wide public service announcement… but at least she wouldn’t have banked full of extra funds with which to ruin her life, as well as the life of her precious toddler.
Of course, while you and yours were chowing down on turkey, dressing and (in my case) killer lasagna, TMZ has obtained Amber’s Christmas slammer menu. The website reveals that while we were enjoying bounties of deliciousness with family and friends, poor Amber and her fellow inmates were feasting on “turkey sausage pizza” (which was described as ‘a meat-like substance on top of the pizza’), a side of carrots (cold, not steamed), peas and some pineapple.”
Wow and wow. While I’d like to funny (and I do firmly believe that pineapple was a missing and necessary staple of my Christmas smorgasbord), it hurts my heart that anyone, including the awful Amber – who needs to serve her time and change her life — isn’t getting the precious time with loved ones I’ve been allotted. #blessings
Here’s hoping you and yours are reveling in this wonderful time, burying the hatchet and savoring your time with those you hold most dear!
THOUGHTS ON AMBER’S INCARCERATION? DO YOU BELIEVE ALL OF THOSE PILLS WERE PRESCRIBED TO HER? AS THIS ARTICLE HIGHLIGHTS AMBER’S CHRISTMAS DINNER, WHAT DID YOU AND YOUR FAMILY ENJOY OVER THE WEEKEND?
While former BFFsKim Zolciak and Nene Leakes promised to never speak again following their tour bus blow up on season 3, many fans believed that pact wouldn’t last. It has, however, lasted as evident on last week’s RHOA episode which had both ladies in the same room not speaking, while also not acknowledging one another.
In her latest Bravo blog, Kim Zoliack Biermann talks about seeing the Nene during Cynthia Bailey’s opening of her modeling agency.
“I had baby KJ three weeks before Cynthia’s event, so it was my first time getting into regular clothes in a while. A Louis Vuitton jumpsuit to be exact. It was nice to get out! Everyone was so worried about me and NeNe being in the same room together, but I wasn’t!,” says Kim.
Kim continues, “I am an adult, and both NeNe and I have come to the understanding that we will never speak ever again. Besides, I’m in a different place than I was on the bus tour. NeNe doesn’t exist to Kim Biermann. NeNe may be taller than I am, but she is definitely not on my level. Moving on!” Me to the ow!
Kim then takes a minute to get on her soapbox about newbie Marlo Hampton’sclaim to riches! “Everyone has been buzzing about this new girl, Marlo, and I was excited to meet her. I had heard rumors that she sleeps with much older men for money and that’s her claim to fame in Atlanta.” Uh, isn’t that YOUR claim to fame as well Kim!?
Sitting comfortably in her glass house, Kim continues, “Now listen, I’m not one to judge how a bitch pays her bills, but admitting to it and then boasting about it is just tacky! She kept bringing up her “big poppa” and hearing those two words was making me sick!” Didn’t you used to brag about your “big Poppa”? Anyone else remember that scene from season 1 during which she went on and on about the married and rich Big Poppabuying her a Range Rover?
Kim closes out her blog by stating: “She and Kandistarted arguing about God knows what, and it totally reminded me why Kroy and I are happy to stay at home. These women are in their late thirties and early forties and they still go to events and argue. I couldn’t have left any faster. Bye, bitches!”
Funny how these Bravo housewives get their own spinoffs and are all of a sudden too good for the drama! Coughs, Bethenny, coughs. And finally, Kim’s daughter Brielle posted an old photo on her Myspace page (people still use Myspace?) of her mom without her wig on! That photo is below!
Also, below is the first photo of the one and only Nene Leakes playing her Glee character — Roz Washington, coach of the school’s swim team. Lastly, there will be no new episode of the RHOA airing tonight on Bravo. The show returns in two weeks.

It’s the holidays and in the spirit of goodwill towards all, I will try my best to keep the snark out of this post about the ever present Taylor Armstrong and her plight to remain in the spotlight while playing the role of doting mother and grieving widow in light of estranged husband Russell Armstrong’ssuicide. Because honestly, who am I to say that she’s not? And FYI, that wasn’t sarcasm it was me attempting objectivity. Weird, I know.
Hollywoodlife.com caught up with the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills’ star on December 22 as her five-year-old daughter and friends decorated cupcakes at a Beverly Hills bake shop. Taylor told the site, “My daughter Kennedy is doing good, we are both getting stronger every day. We are just taking it one day at a time. We know we are going to make it.” Taylor also revealed that young Kennedy wants an iPad for Christmas. Me too! #nosnark
Taylor explains that it is difficult for her to watch this season unfold knowing how everything plays out in the end. She admits, “It’s difficult watching the show because we taped it so long ago. But I do get to see other people’s perspectives so I understand them better. But it’s difficult doing reality TV because you experience the drama in your life when you are experiencing it and then when you watch it months later on TV you re-live it.” And then you keep doing interviews about, thus reliving it again, and again, and again.
On the most recent episode, Taylor and Russell were turned away at the door of Kyle Richards’ annual white party. No hard feelings, according to Taylor. Really? Not one to burn the bridge with her strongest, and perhaps only, ally hold grudges, Taylor shares that she’s remained close with most of her cast mates. She reveals, “We are all pretty good about keeping in touch. I talk to Kyle the most because we live close to each other and our kids play with each other. I see her a lot. I saw Lisa [Vanderpump] the other night.” So the ladies are still socializing — nothing skips a beat in Beverly Hills, it seems!
Taylor also takes the opportunity to promote her upcoming autobiography discuss her latest project which is near and dear to her heart. She hopes her book, which will be released on February 7, 2012 (she must write fast!), will serve as a catalyst to help others discuss the sensitive and extremely important subject of domestic violence. “I want my book to inspire people to talk about [abuse] — to make it a conversation, because if it’s not talked about, there can be no change,” explains Taylor.
Radaronline.com also reports that the reality star wants to prioritize her life before she hits the dating scene. While volunteering for the 1736 Family Crisis Center, Taylor told Star Magazine, “I’m learning to love myself. I’m OK being by myself and just being a mom.”
Taylor reveals that a new romance isn’t in the cards yet for her, as she’s focusing her efforts elsewhere, continuing, “I’ve got to make sure that my little girl is in the best place possible before anything else. I am having a blast with my little girl. I need some Taylor time for now.”
Also on her agenda is bringing more awareness to abuse victims. “I have a domestic violence background from my childhood,” Taylor explains. “The subject is something that is very near and dear to me.”
WHY DO YOU THINK IT’S DIFFICULT FOR TAYLOR TO WATCH THE CURRENT SEASON OF RHOBH? DO YOU BELIEVE SHE’S MENDED FENCES WITH THE LADIES? WILL YOU BE BUYING HER NEW BOOK? THOUGHTS ON HER DATING AGAIN?
HAPPY HOLIDAYS, SAFE TRAVELS, AND BEST WISHES TO ALL OUR WONDERFUL RT READERS!
Deck the halls with Kardashian stories! Fa la la la la, blah, blah, blah, blah! Because it wouldn’t be just another day if she wasn’t doing just another interview, Kim Kardashian is opening up about her failed marriage, the recent and tumultuous media backlash, and her sincere apologies for her part in the Kardarshiscam her family’s staying power and the future prospects of the Kardynasty.
Pagesix.com is reporting on Kimmie’s recent cover story for the Hollywood Reporter which cites her as one of the past year’s biggest “rule breakers.” In her interview, Kimmie discusses the family’s growing number of reality shows and threatens promises the shows will continue and multiply. She states, “There are so many of us, but I think we’ll see more of my younger siblings.”
With the family starting to focus on the next generation of Kardashians Jenners, Kylie and Kendall, as well Kim’s younger brother, Dancing with the Stars alum Rob Kardashian, the overexposed reality star predicts their “television monopoly will ‘go on for years.'” When is the next rapture scheduled? Geez Louise!
When will the rest of the planet have some relief? That’s simple, Kim reveals. The Kardashians will stop assaulting us from all fronts tabloid, television series and E! specials as soon as the money stops rolling in it is no longer “fun”. And I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but she means when it stops being fun for them, not us… because, in my opinion, it stopped being fun for me a while ago. Kimmie vows, “When the fun stops so will we.” Um, can the viewing public please get that in writing?
Pimpmomager Kris Jenner was shockingly right by her favorite daughter’s side for the interview, giving her two cents on the klan’s monopoly. Kris boasts, “I’m really proud at how hard we’ve all worked this year and what we’ve accomplished. We roll as one big unit, so whether something’s sad, happy or tragic, we come together as a family and everything falls into place.” And the money keeps falling into their inflated bank accounts. But whose fault is that? They definitely have an audience, even if most of that audience seems disgusted by them.
Not addressed in the magazine’s year-end double issue? I’ll give you two guesses, and the first one doesn’t count. There is no mention of her blink-and-you-missed-it marriage to basketballer Kris Humphries, not to be confused with her shoved-down-your-throat-even-people-who-live-under-rocks-saw-it wedding. Also absent from the article was any mention of the recent allegations that many of the products produced and touted by the Kardashian empire are created in Chinese sweatshops. Now, how surprised are you that those minor issues were inadvertently left out of the article? It’s Kimmie’s world, y’all. We’re just living in watching it.
Poor ex-husband Kris didn’t even get a mention in Kim’s interview, so you’re probably wondering how’s he’s holding up in this whole media firestorm. Well, with the NBA lockout over and Kris back playing with his beloved New Jersey Nets, things couldn’t be better for the dude glaringly left out of the Kasdashian Christmas kard (sorry, I couldn’t stomach starting Christmas with a “K” as much as it would have fit. I’m not going to give Kimmie Christmas!). He’s doing great… minus that entire Karbacklashian he’s facing.
Hollywoodlife.com reports that number 43 isn’t letting fan hate affect his time on the court. A source reveals, “[Kris] is letting it slide and not reacting negatively too it. He wasn’t really affected by being booed as he expected it from the Madison Square Garden crowd, especially playing for the other team.” Yeah, I’m willing to bet all the poor sportsmanship he was met with was purely a result of not playing for the home team.
The site reveals that nearly everyone in the huge venue booed the guy when the game began. That’s just not right! Kris, however, seems to be taking it all in stride. The insider continues, “He doesn’t blame Kim. This is all about playing basketball and he refuses to let the boos and hatred get to him.” He’s certainly a bigger person than I am, literally (thankfully, at almost 6’0, I’m not quite at Amazon status yet) and figuratively. Keep up that great attitude Kris because chances are it’s going to be a looonnnggg season.
DO YOU BELIEVE THE KARDASHIAN EMPIRE IS IN THIS FOR THE LONG HAUL? IF SO, WILL YOU KEEP WATCHING? THOUGHTS ON POOR KRIS’ RECEPTION AT MADISON SQUARE GARDEN?
This week (like every other week in reality TV news) has been dominated by Real Housewives of New Jersey. You know how they say NYC is the city that never sleeps, I feel like it’s actually Jersey that never sleeps because the drama just keeps on coming faster than you can say “Joewwww!”
In the latest, Reality Tea’s source gives us exclusive behind the scenes details of Joe Giudice‘s Identity Theft case and reveals why Melissa Gorga‘s and Teresa Giudice‘s Christmas cards look so similar!
Earlier this week we reported that Juicy was indicted on wrongful use of identifying information and impersonation charges and could be facing multiple years in prison for his crimes! Reality Tea’s source confirms the Giudice family is “not happy” with the verdict and allegedly Joe has claimed to have stolen the documents used to obtain the driver’s license from his brother Pete Giudice!
“I will say Joe is loyal to his family. Pete is the one who gave Joe the documents,” the source shockingly reveals! “But, since that hasn’t been reported I assume Joe is saying he ‘stole’ them from his brother.” This possibly explains why Pete has not been charged with any crimes related to the incident.
Our source also reveals that Pete’s wife, Sheila Giudice, had no idea how the documents ended up in Joe’s hands! “The truth is, his wife Sheila had NO clue Pete gave Joe the documents. The documents were in their safe and only Pete and Sheila have access to it.”
“Sheila was irate when she learned Pete gave Joe the documents. But, since Joe was giving Pete work at the time and still is, Pete is indebted to Joe.” Pete filed for bankruptcy in 2010 and presumably was having financial troubles as the debts listed on their filing were “consumer debts” or personal debts and as opposed to business related debts.
Our source then goes on to describe the animosity between sister-in-laws at war Teresa and Melissa! Apparently, while Christmas is the birthday of Baby Jesus (and that’s what matters most to Melissa #backwardssignofthecross), and should be a time of peace, love, and giving these two ladies just cannot put their differences aside and focus on the bigger picture! And speaking of pictures… here comes Christmas Card-gate!
According to our source, the annual Gorgadice Christmas card feud has been happening for years as Teresa and Melissa battle it out to have the biggest, the best, and most over the top cards of them all! Our source also touches on some of Melissa’s other alleged copy-cat behavior, “Melissa is now putting recipes on her blog?”
“They both used the SAME photographer for their Christmas cards this year,” our source reveals, explaining why the Antonia is wearing the exact same coat that was seen on Gia in a card a few years back! Copies of the cards are below! Teresa posted on her website that she gets her cards from Portrait Artistry by Linda Marie and found her when she was “driving past her studio” and looking for someone to photograph Gia’s birth announcement.
Melissa recently announced on her personal blog that she has also used Linda for years, “I’ve been going to her since Antonia was born! She also did the beautiful family picture you saw us do on season 3 with Joe [Gorga]‘s family!” Right below that Melissa also offers one of her personal recipes.
According to our source, the ladies keep using Linda Marie for competition! Poor Linda Marie! “They both act like they love her [Linda] so much… meanwhile, neither one of them have used her the past few years. Teresa did use her last year for Christmas pics.” Teresa claims to have always used Linda on her website and included a montage of Christmas cards past for us to enjoy.
Our insider continues, “Melissa was going to Photos By Ginny for the past few years but, since she feared Teresa’s cards would be better then hers she went back to Linda.”
“They always hold out and wait until the last minute to mail their cards. As soon as Teresa sends hers out, a day or 2 later here come Melissa’s. This is the 4th year in a row Melissa has done this. Teresa stopped using Linda when Melissa started using her. Melissa tries to act like she always used her in her blog.”
“Melissa has been trying to keep up with Teresa and copying her more and more,” our insider adds. Well hopefully Melissa doesn’t copy her way into bankruptcy!
Christmas Card-gate is apparently just the tip of the iceberg with these two and even more upsetting, according to our source things are so acrimonious between the Gorgas and the Giudices, they will not be spending the holidays together because Teresa’s parents won’t allow it!
“Teresa’s father refuses to be in the same room as the 2 Joe’s. He is afraid of them fighting and can’t handle it in his health condition.” Ok, that’s when you know you need to stop it, sit down, and work out your differences!

I remember idolizing the California rich and famous with their million dollar convertible cars, diamond encrusted watches and Peach Pit lunches alongside Color Me Badd. Things Beverly Hills used to be known for: ridiculously lavish lifestyles (thank you, Robin Leach!), Rodeo Drive, a snobby yet endearing Girl Scout troop (hats sashes off to you, Shelley Long!) and 90210.
Things Beverly Hills is known for now: Kyle Richards’ White Party (#sosorrybevhills), Jiggy as well as the Taylor Armstrong and Russell Armstrong tragedy. Whatever happened to “Donna Martin graduates!” and the iconic Pretty Woman mantra, “You work on commission, right? Big mistake. Huge!” Simpler times, I guess.
Because she’s not going anywhere one celebrity site is shedding more insight into Real Housewives of Beverly Hills’Taylor Armstrong’s life… and the decision she may have hoped would secure her a spot on the potential third season of Bravo’s hit show. I’m exhausted writing about it, so she surely has to be tired living it. One would hope…don’t I wish.
RadarOnline.com is citing Taylor’s timing for her divorce filing from the late Russell Armstrong as a necessity to keep her in the network’s good graces. The site is reporting that Taylor “finally decided to file for divorce from her then-husband… because executives at Bravo had implemented a ban prohibiting the couple from appearing on the hit show after Russell sent executives legal letters threatening to sue.”
We all watched awkwardly (insert typical metaphor here — it’s a train wreck… you don’t want to see it, but you can’t look away) on the most recent episode of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. You recall that Taylor and Russell were turned away from Kyle’s annual White Party by the teary hostess (and a bada$$ Paul Nassif!) after Russell threatened fellow cast mate Camille Grammar with a lawsuit via e-mail for alleging abuse against his wife.
However, it seems Camille wasn’t the only one on the receiving end of Russell’s litigious barrage because a source close to the show claims, “During filming of the show, as the season progressed, [he] started sending blistering letters and e-mails to Bravo and NBC Universal executives threatening lawsuits. Russell was furious that Taylor had discussed their serious marital issues, including the fact that he hit her on multiple occasions.”
The insider continues, saying that Russell was irate “the fellow housewives were now talking about it on the show.” The insider reveals, “Russell would have had no legal leg to stand on because it was Taylor who was telling the girls this stuff. Bravo and NBC decided that Russell and Taylor were more trouble than they were worth, and decided to end filming with them, as soon as it became apparent that Russell was going to continue down that path.”
So what’s a girl to do? Her spotlight in jeopardy and her husband an alleged ticking time-bomb, the Bravo star did what needed to be done. The source says, “Taylor decided to pursue the separation first, but then she thought to get back on the show, she would need to file for divorce, so that she could appear on the show again, if she promised executives that she was leaving him for good.” Despite all the clauses the insider throws out in that statement, the entire scene is just plain sad. Whether you believe a woman was so desperate to remain on a television program that she would throw her marriage under the bus or that she was saving herself and her young daughter from terrors to come, the whole situation was/is/and will continue to be horrific and heart wrenching.
The insider continues, “[F]or a very long time [Taylor knew] that she needed to leave Russell because of the verbal and physical abuse. Being taken off a show that she loved doing because of his actions was the catalyst that finally made her pull the trigger on her marriage. Russell knew he was going to be exposed and was in full damage control mode. Ultimately, there was nothing he could do to stop it.”
Taylor won’t be seen on the show again until the new year according to the source who reports, “The episode that will air on Monday night will show all of the girls except Taylor going to Hawaii. Taylor will call the girls, and tell them on speakerphone while they are on their Hawaiian holiday that she had decided to leave Russell.”
Again, regardless of your opinions on this tragedy (and I have my own, believe me) it’s nothing but awful given Russell’ssuicide, the fact that an innocent five-year-old is involved, and the notion that it’s all playing out for our “entertainment.” So sad, and yet please know the irony of me writing about it isn’t lost on this gal. Here’s hoping that outside the world that is Beverly Hills (past and present) you and yours revel in family and friends this holiday season.
THOUGHTS ON THIS NEW REVELATION? DO YOU THINK TAYLOR FILED FOR DIVORCE TO STAY ON THE SHOW? WHAT DO YOU THINK OF RUSSELL THREATENING THE NETWORK WITH LAWSUITS?
“Having a new baby changes you,” Kim told PEOPLE. “Watching this season, I feel like you can just see how happy I am on my face – I don’t even have to say anything.” And this season Kim is happy to have her life on film, “I’m grateful to have all this captured on camera.”
Kim admits that past seasons were hard to watch due to the non-stop confrontations and drama surrounding her, but now that she is in a different place with a different focus she doesn’t cringe at all. Not even when we see her carting around a couple dozen wigs she treats like children? “I used to cover my eyes sometimes [during my Housewives scenes]. I’d be like, ‘Oh, god,’ ” Kim confesses. “And now, this season … it’s been incredible … I wasn’t involved with the drama.”
“I absolutely have no regrets, but this season is a lot easier for me to watch,” she reveals. “Last year I was caught up in drama and trying to do that bus tour. And it’s hard to watch.”
“You live it, and then six months later, you watch it on TV,” Kim explains of how reality TV works. “So this season, there aren’t any moments where I’m in a position where I’m going to cover my eyes.”
Kim is equally excited about the new year and the premiere of her spin-off, Don’t Be Tardy For The Wedding. So what’s her New Year’s Resolution? “To get more for sleep.” Darn, I was hoping it’d be something along the lines of start more drama or that her wigs would get their own spin-off. At least it’s not to produce another song!
THOUGHTS ON KIM’S INTERVIEW? IS KIM CAPABLE OF AVOIDING DRAMA OR IS JUST A MATTER OF TIME UNTIL SHE GETS SWEPT BACK IN? ARE YOU LIKING THE LESS CRAZY KIM THIS SEASON?
