Last night’s episode of Real Housewives of Beverly Hillsdealt with both the past and future as Kyle hosted a séance, the ladies got their faces touched up and reapplied, and Kim finally confessed that she is moving in with her secret boyfriend, Ken much to Kyle’s shock!
Dr. Paul hosts a Night of Beauty at his plastic surgery office. Kyle wants to do a little laser muffin top removal. Kyle is excited, yet nervous about being subjected to the chub-munching octopus, but threatens to move into Paul’s office if it works. Paul tells her to relax and then the torture of lying there while some little red swirls dance across her mythical fat roll begins.
Lisa is wandering through the labyrinth of Botox and laser treatments looking for Kyle when she stumbles across Taylor. Taylor has snacks and is waiting with some sort of weird numbing goop smeared all over her face as she is prepping to get some new fillers in her cheeks. Lisa advises her to skip the procedures and go straight for the food, which is untouched. Taylor informs us that she has a “genetically thin face” and no matter how much she eats she always looks like Skeletor.

Speaking to Access Atlanta while promoting Skweeze Couture (is anyone buying that?), the formidable former Housewife was refreshingly candid, which means she basically put her foot in her mouth and said things that are bound to get the public all riled up!
Jill admits she would have “liked to stay on the show” for the opportunity and income it provided, but she isn’t necessarily sad it ended! “Now that I’m off the show, I can see my reputation getting better,” she insists. “Things improved season four after it was damaged season three. People are starting to realize, watching other reality shows, that maybe they were too harsh on me.” We are? Well perhaps, in light of former bestie and co-star Bethenny Frankel’s latest issues with the media some fans may be reconsidering their opinions of Jill and the demise of her friendship with Bethenny.
About that feud… Jill was eager to address that what we saw on TV was not necessarily how it played out in real life. Cue the Producer Manipulation accusation employed by all reality stars in times of strife! Jill insists that the time Bethenny called her to discuss their imploding friendship and Jill put her on speaker phone while her new BFF, LuAnn de Lesseps was sitting next to her to over-hear everything wasn’t to be mean and catty, but to accommodate the producers! Apparently, Jill didn’t realize Bethenny also had a camera crew with her at that same time. Oops. Regardless, that doesn’t redeem all the catty comments!
Jill cites another incident where she put former cast-mate Ramona Singer on speakerphone only for Ramona to make rude comments about LuAnn while LuAnn was sitting right there!
Despite the pain it caused her and the loss of her friendship with Bethenny, Jill (who once said she thought the feud was manufactured for TV drama purposes) is thankful for her experiences on RHONY. “Four years was much longer than I ever thought the show would last,” she reveals. “I’m grateful. And the show lives on. Plus, repeats are now being rolled out in other countries so I get emails all over the world asking me if I’m still best friends with Bethenny.” I wonder if she tells them to Google IHJZ!?
Jill claims she sensed her time was coming to an end with Bravo and was prepared and expressed her disappointment over the reactions of other fired Housewives, namely Alex McCord and Simon van Kempen who asserted Jill was responsible for Alex’s termination! Alex is quoted as saying Jill has “been trying to get me off the show for a number of years. She succeeded…She’s a manipulator and she’s very good at feeding information to her own end.”
“I was disappointed by what they said,” Jill reflected. “It hurt my feelings. For good or bad, we made great television. We had fun together. Season four, I didn’t have one fight with Alex. We got along in Morocco. Don’t go after me. Go after another housewife that did something to you, not me.”
“After we were let go that Saturday night, I reached out to all the girls, including Alex and Simon. I said if you need me for anything, I get booked for appearances and if they need other people, I can suggest you. Now I don’t want to work with them,” Jill remarks. “I was trying to be nice.”
Jill assures us, once again, she is not finished with reality TV! Apparently her Bravo contract “limited her ability to make appearances on shows on rival networks”, but since the “The Golden Child” Bethenny was able to appear on the horrible Skating With The Stars, Jill believes she’ll be able to go to another network, no problem. In fact, she is “in talks” to do a new show though nothing is set in stone just yet. I seriously hope it has nothing to do with Patti Stanger’s proposed “Glamazons”!
“I think people are going to miss me,” Jill believes, confident that once Season 5 premieres without her everyone is going to wish she was still included in the cast. I wouldn’t bet too much money on that one, Jill!
In other Jill news, the product she is desperately hawking, Skweeze Couture, is on the market and Jill insists she knows what she’s doing! “It’s not like I’m a celebrity who woke up and said, ‘Oh, let me do a line of this or that.’ What I’m doing makes sense based on what I already know. I feel like I’m filling a void.” Apparently, lots of women need girdles!
Apparently. Since the NY Daily News reviewed Skweeze (and two other shapewear companies, although not Skinnygirl Shapewear) and found that while it definitely sucks in your fat, you might need “the Jaws of Life” to remove it! When asked if Skweeze was supposed to be so um… restricting, Jill replied: “I didn’t make it to be comfortable, I made it to work!” Well the reviews are in and it works, it’s just about the most uncomfortable garment ever manufactured, but “it lives up to its name!”

THOUGHTS ON JILL’S INTERVIEW? ARE YOU SURPRISED SHE IS STILL TALKING ABOUT GETTING FIRED? DO YOU THINK HER SPEAKER PHONE GAFF WAS INTENTIONAL OR AT THE BEHEST OF THE PRODUCERS? WOULD YOU TRY SKWEEZE AFTER READING THE REVIEW?
Last night’s Basketball Wives LA picked up where last week’s drama left off…a whole lotta Jackie hatin’. With the ladies comparing notes on gossip the trip doesn’t go as smoothly as a relaxing trip to Hawaii should go, but hey, that’s why we watch!
Yeehaw! The tense group of ladies is heading horse back riding with a dry Draya executing knock-knock jokes about avoiding the drama. Jackie thinks the entire outing is fake. Her horse is very feisty. Draya keeps telling her that the horse can sense her bad vibe. Jackie does not find her humorous at all. All of the ladies, sans Jackie, are getting along and having so much fun.
Malaysia, the sisters Govan and Imani convene at the hotel for mimosas. Imani tells Gloria that her beef with Laura was based on Jackie’s twisted gossip and things between her and Gloria’s sister are cool. As if she could sense the women discussing her, Jackie walks in followed by Draya. Jackie immediately cuts through the small talk because she wants to rid the group of the mounting tension…but she seems very defensive.

In a new interview with E! Amber, 21, reveals she, like many others, was not surprised the marriage between Kim, 31, and Kris Humphriesled to divorce. “I don’t think anyone was surprised,” said Amber.
Amber then goes on to make it clear she can relate to Kimmie because they are so totally a lot alike! “I mean it is heartbreaking, but Kim and Kris are like Gary [Shirley] and me. Total opposites,” noted Amber. “One is a diva and the other is a down-home guy.”
Kim Kardashian Jr. also explained why she calls herself a diva! “Well, Janice Dickinson told me I’m a diva, so I guess I’d have to say I’m the diva,” laughed Amber. Okaaay.
As for the current state of her relationship with baby daddy Gary Shirley, Amber reveals the two are working on finally becoming adults becoming better co-parents to their daughter, Leah. If you recall, they are currently broken up for the week time being. In fact, the two are working together to plan a birthday bash for little Leah who turns 3 next week! (She’s already 3?)
“We’re having a giant bash for her,” said Kimmie Jr. “It’s going to be all princess-themed. She’s going to be Cinderella. Gary and I realized that it’s all about Leah. It’s not about what he wants or what I want. It’s her day.”
In Amber’s defense, Kim and her do have a lot in common as they are both famous for being famous and lacking any known talent!

TELL US – THOUGHTS ON AMBER’S COMMENTS? IS SHE A LOT LIKE KIMMIE?
In other news, did Chrissy finally get a proposal from long-term boyfriend/rapper Jim Jones? According to a report that is the case! If you recall, Chrissy proposed to Jim last season yet nothing ultimately came from that.
According to a report by Bossip, Jim finally popped the question to Chrissy last month in Miami. Sources tell the blog: “Jimmy had a super romantic outdoor proposal planned, the rainy weather forced him to take it indoors.” The proposal reportedly took place in the ballroom at the Mandarin Oriental Hotel Miami with most of Chrissy’s castmates present. No word yet on whether or not VH1’s cameras were on hand to capture this moment.
The new season of Love & Hip Hop premieres Monday, November 14 on VH1.

Ben Flajnik, the 29-year-old wine-maker from Sonoma, CA will begin his quest shortly for a wife! ABC has just announced the sixteenth season of The Bachelor will debut this January. They are officially 0-15 so let’s hope they can get a success under their belt with Bachelor Ben’s romantic, sensitive ways.
After getting his heart broken by BacheloretteAshley Hebert in the most boring season ever, Ben has the chance to redeem himself as 25 women try desperately to woo him for their chance at fifteen minutes of fame finding love.
Describing Ben as a “rare, modern Renaissance man,” he is hoping he can meet a woman that loves music, wine and his dog. The former music production major with a minor in business from University of Arizona initially found success working in Internet advertising. However, he decided to turn his love of wine into a full-time business and now co-owns a winery that produces multiple brands.
This three-time loser in love is “confident” the fourth times a charm and he will “find his soul mate and a lasting, love-filled relationship” on the show. Ben has very high expectations!
Ben plans to remain in California for both his family and his winery, thus whatever woman he chooses better be ready to relocate! She also must deal with his mom and sister — which based on Ashley’s home visit with him –- is going to be tough to handle! Be ready for lots of excitement along the way in Ben’s quest for love (spoilers are reporting a surprise visit from a past-season’s Bachelor contestant that has a crush on Ben!).
The new season of The Bachelor will premier on ABC — Jan 2, 2012 (8/9 ET).
WILL YOU BE WATCHING? ARE YOU EXCITED ABOUT BEN AS THE BACHELOR?
It’s getting down to the wire on Dancing With The Stars and the five remaining stars put on their strongest performances yet on Monday night!
In fact, in a season first, a contestant finished the night with two perfect scores! Yes, war veteran J.R. Martinezearned a 30, not once, but twice alongside partner Karina Smirnoff. First J.R. earned three 10s for his flawless waltz. “It was like a musical Valentine card,” said judge Bruno Tonioli. “You dance with your heart on your sleeve. It was divine.” Moments later, J.R. earned another 30 for his insta-jive! “There’s nobody coming close to you tonight,” gushed judge Carrie Ann Inaba.
Showing a definite improvement last night was soccer star Hope Solo as she tied for second place with Ricki Lake! Perhaps it was all due to her partner Maksim Chmerkovskiywho promised to take a kinder, gentler approach with Hope. “I will take responsibility for being overly rough,” said Maks during rehearsals about being too hard on Hope last week. It appeared to work as the duo received their highest score of the season — a 27 for their light and breezy quickstep. They ended the night with a total score of 52!
Coming in last was news anchor Nancy Grace, finishing the night with a combined score of 44. “It’s midnight, and it’s time to go home,” judge Len Goodman said to Nancy after comparing her to Cinderella. Ouch!
Oh, Real Housewives of Atlanta how I missed your crazy ways! It’s a new season… with the same intros? Bravo? What’s up with that!? On last night’s season premiere episode Kim prepared for her new life with Kroy and KJ, NeNe and Sheree got crazy, Phaedra found her new calling, Cynthia debuted The Bailey Agency and Kandi well… she was vibrating with excitement over a new business venture.
Things start out with a super prego Kim — and I think her wig is getting bigger as her bump grows — along with Sweetie and Kroy cleaning out her storage unit. Apparently, Kim and Kroy are moving into her dream home and she is planning to fill it with all the furniture Big Poppa paid for! While Kim sits in the car and drinks a slurpy, Kroy does all the heavy lifting. Kim seems happy yet warns Kroy he better not hurt his money maker hauling Big Poppa’s furniture around – she needs his booty to bring home those checks! She still can’t get over his booty either! Is Kroy a stripper or her boyfriend? Kim reflects on the differences between Big Poppa and Kroy: Big Poppa wouldn’t move a tissue, Kroy is a real man who lifts other man’s furniture, Big Poppa was married and Kroy isn’t, oh and Kroy’s ring is going to mean a thing! I missed Kim’s trashy!
