The 48-year-old shared with PEOPLE magazine that she has lost an impressive 20 lbs on her 5’1″ frame. And what’s her secret? “Just portion control. I eat what I want. I just eat the bad things earlier on in the day,” said Caroline. For example, “If I want pasta, I have it for lunch instead of for dinner. That’s all. If I want a piece of cheesecake, I have half instead of a whole.”
Along with a healthy diet, Caroline also credits her weight loss to regular exercise, by doing “a lot of treadmill” and drinking “a lot of water.
Caroline spends about 45 minutes to an hour working out at least three times a week. “I try to do it every day. And as the day progresses, I eat lighter and lighter,” she says of her routine. “And I stopped drinking soda and juice … [I drink] just one coffee a day and buckets and buckets and buckets of water.”
Caroline shares she began her new regimen back in March, and says the weight came off slowly. “I think that’s healthy,” she says. “That’s the way to do it, so it’s not like yo-yo dieting.”
When it comes to how she feels today, the mother of three reveals she feels “so much better” since losing the weight. “I love it … I always felt uncomfortable in my clothes. But now I’m good.”
The latest is that the former Bachelorcouple sat together Wednesday night as ABC decided to have them do a joint interview to further exploit discuss their break up. The interview, set to air July 5th, reportedly ended in Jake being very angry and even walking off.
“Sources” told TMZ that while discussing their breakup during the taping, Jake lost his temper and even reportedly cocked his arm and made a fist in Vienna’s direction. A source close to Vienna claims Jake “has a really bad hidden temper. He snaps all the time, it was just the first time he did it in front of people.”
The interview then reportedly ended abruptly with Jake walking off. Another “source” however disputes the claims, telling TMZ Vienna was interrupting Jake constantly during the taping … “Chris Harrison had to tell her over and over again to let him talk.”
RadarOnline is also reporting that Vienna told a friend she didn’t think Jake was into girls, you know considering the whole he wouldn’t have sex with her for four months, and would only show her affection in front of the cameras dilemma.
Jake himself A childhood friend of Jake’s is however shutting down the gay rumors telling Radar “he’s most certainly not gay.”
The Hollywoodlife gives a more detailed summary of what Vienna had to say about Jake in her startling Star magazine interview -
Jake wouldn’t be intimate with her: He made excuses, like he was doing a “religious fast,” “he didn’t feel like it,” “he wanted to wait for marriage,” Vienna says. Lastly, Jake blamed it on their constant fighting turning him off.
Jake screwed up Valentine’s day: “I set up rose petals, had a bubble bath running and got into the bath,” Vienna says. “And Jake never came in — he told me that he just didn’t feel like it that night!”
Jake wouldn’t cuddle or hold her: “When you wake up in the morning, I want you to kiss me and say good morning,” Vienna said to Jake. “He’d do that for a few days but then go back to like it was before.”
Jakes stopped saying “I love you!” “We haven’t said ‘I love you’ for a couple of days,” Vienna says. “I’m the one who always says it, every phone call.”
Jake was more focused on his career than his marriage: “Every second we’re together, it’s always business with Jake,” Vienna explains. “He went on auditions while I sat in the apartment doing nothing.”
Jake lied about his career ambitions: “I thought he was a pilot,” Vienna says. “He really wants to be an actor. This wasn’t supposed to be our life.”
Jake moved Vienna to an unfamiliar place: “He moved me out to LA,” she said. “I didn’t know anyone there!”
Jake never talked about wedding plans, EVER: “The whole story I said about finding Jimmy Choos for the wedding … was all a lie,” Vienna admits. “Whenever I’d bring up the wedding to Jake, he’d just blow me off or ignore me.”
Jake killed Vienna’s self-confidence: “Jake has made me hate myself,” she says. “Being with someone who won’t be intimate with me, who is constantly fighting with me, has totally taken away all my self-esteem!”
Who could have ever imagined this Bachelor breakup would end with so much mudslinging? The “anticipated” joint interview with Jake and Vienna will air July 5th on ABC during an episode of the Bachelorette.
According to RadarOnline, Kelly was photographed wandering down the beach of the exclusive New York beach resort on Wednesday while in the Hamptons.
Joining Kelly in the photo-op is her new dog, which is said to be a young black lab. Perhaps this is some sort of media strategy to distract fans from her nutty behavior on the show, you know considering the anti bullying rants and PSA video failed to work.
The boring lost footage episode of the NYC Housewives also aired last night, but we were lucky enough to get a few great moments from the one and only Kelly. The best part of the show was probably when Kelly said the following to Alex McCord regarding her anxiety over going on the St John trip. “Everyone is unpredictable, and I’m so normal,” said Kelly.
Another interesting part of the show was when Kelly decided to pay Sonja Morgan a visit as Sonja recovered from her liposuction surgery. This visit was after the St. John trip, which left me wondering why Kelly would go visit her “bully” and even go bearing gifts? Things that make you wonder.
Oh well, below are more freakishodd bikini photos of Kelly Bensimon taken this week, as well as some others from earlier this year.
Multiple media outlets are reporting DJ Pauly D has several sex tapes floating around. Popcrunch reports the amateur tapes are said to be with a Canadian model he met this year while doing promotion for the first season of the MTV hit show.
“It is being revealed that they filmed a few sex videos while together – Our insiders say the girl in question has no intent on selling the recordings… But we all know eventually they will come out!!,” adds the ZackTaylor blog.
The magazine cover photo, which hit stands this week under the banner “Queer Issue” and above the headline “The Guido Ideal” — a story about “gay Jersey guidos on the down-low,” has led to some whispers and questions about the guys’ sexuality, but not so fast reports the NYPost.
The Post is reporting the guys were not aware what they were posing for and had no idea they were being photographed for the Queer cover. A source from the mag also adds, “The paper’s not saying the cover boys are gay, just that that they’re hot.”
The guys however seem to be good sports about the cover and The Situation was even quoted in the past as saying: “I’ll be honest, I like the attention [from gay men]. I’m flattered if there are guys with different preferences that have crushes on me.”
We learn tonight about Bethenny’s first marriage, as she opens up about her divorce. It all starts when her wedding planner hunts her down in a hair salon. A still pregnant and hormonal Bethenny doesn’t seem too comfortable when the discussion turns to her previous relationships or the fact that she needs to find her divorce papers in order to get married again.
The new episode airs tonight at 10:00pm Eastern on Bravo.
“We haven’t been asked back yet. Let’s see if the show is renewed for another season and then we’ll see,” said the Countess to PEOPLE magazine. “I’m going to cross that bridge when I get to it.” Right Countess. Going to go out on a limb here and predict there’s a 100% chance LuAnn will be back for more.
LuAnn, pictured above with boyfriend Jacques Azoulay at last night’s premiere of ‘Grown Ups,’ also shares that she doesn’t have a problem with anyone on the show. And when it comes to Bethenny’s spin off, LuAnn says she is a fan. “I’ve seen it,” she said. “I think it’s great.”
Since we’re on the topic of the NYC Housewives, despite the fact that Jill Zarin has mentioned several times that she cannot understand the words that are coming out of Kelly Bensimon’s mouth, it seems the two have still managed to strike a great friendship despite the language and IQ barrier. Kelly twitted the above pic of her and her new BFF on Tuesday with the caption: “I loved lunch at World pie. I admire our friendship so much.”
Kelly then tweeted to Jill the next day, “tks for coming to watch me ride. I was proud.”
Kelly also had an interesting tweet for the website Gather which wrote a brief article about her lunch with Jill. She tweeted, “i love gather.com they wrote about @jillzarin and i having lunch. i wish they’d write about SAFE SEX and the work of AIDS Service center.”
Good to see things are still the same in Kelly lala cartwheel land. The lost episode of the NYC Housewives show airs tonight on Bravo.

Reality villainess Omarosa Stallworth’s dating show premiered last week on TV One. The show, officially titled Donald J. Trump Presents The UltimateMerger, follows Omarosa’s quest to find love amongst 12 eligible bachelors.
Omarosa, 36, who is mostly known for her role on the first season of The Apprentice, describes her new venture with Donald Trump as “a mix between ‘The Apprentice’ and ‘The Bachelorette.’”
Donald and Omarosa reportedly developed the show together.“When you have a development project with ‘the Donald’ you don’t pass it up,” Omarosa told BV Newswire. “Donald is invested in me and seeing me succeed and you have to have someone who is going to look after your success.”
As for the show, it was revealed in premiere episode that Omarosa has a history with two of the bachelors. Omarosa revealed she had briefly dated Charles Parker, a foreign currency trader whom she refers to as a “player,” and R&B singer Al B. Sure, who Omarosa notes, “didn’t seal the deal” the first time around.
Another notable bachelor on the show is CJ Miller, who appeared on the first season of ABC’s True Beauty.
When it comes to the direction of the dating show, Omarosa makes it clear her show is distinct from the others. “I really enjoyed the whole franchise, from ‘Flavor of Love’ to ‘Ray J,’ and I think there’s a place for that type of program, but this one is kind of different. Ain’t nobody passing out roses or writing poetry,’ she laughed.
The Ultimate Merger airs Thursdays on TV One at 9 p.m. ET. A new episode airs tonight. I gave the show a shot last week and actually enjoyed watching it. It was a good show all around. I would like to know what you all thought of the show.
In the mean time, below are the photos & brief bios of the 12 Bachelors.
Name: Al B. Sure!
Age: 41, Occupation: Recording Artist
Name: CJ Miller
Age: 27, Occupation: Author/Model
TELL US – WHAT ARE YOUR THOUGHTS ON THE BACHELORS AND THE SHOW?
Former prostitution whore and current sex tape queen Danielle Staub has now decided her next ploy to garner attention is to exploit the gay community.
The Real Housewives of New Jersey star gave an interview to FOX news during which she proclaimed she is a part of the gay community. “I haven’t even begun my work in the gay community yet,” said Danielle. “I want to go to senate, I want to pass a bill and get gay marriage legalized. I go to events, I march in rallies. I’ve been a part of the gay community for 30 years.”
Oh but she doesn’t end there. When asked about her relationship with openly lesbian songwriter Lori Michaels, Danielle made sure to play coy and not give a straight answer, pun intended.
“I’m not ready to say that one way or the other,” she told Fox News. “Right now my focus is on my kids, but there is room for one more person in my world. Hopefully soon the world will see that.”
Danielle also took her attentionwhoredom to twitter when she referred to Lori as her girlfriend in a recent tweet. “Thank you everyone for supporting me with love and kindness in my song “Real Close” bless my gf Lori Michaels,” she wrote.
And it’s not over folks. Danielle also made sure she tweeted a photo of herself sitting on Lori’s lap. That photo is below.
One person who isn’t buying Danielle’s faux lesbian story? Her co-star Jacqueline Laurita, who tweeted the following on Monday night: “She just asked my friend at her new condo to introduce her to all her single MALE friends so I am as confused as she is apparently. ;0)”
And for all the folks who would like a peek at Danielle’s sex tape, The first 15 minutes of the explicit tape has been posted online for free by Perez Hilton. You can watch that by clicking here. Good luck, you will need it.
Speaking of attention whores, party planner Elvira Grau, who released a press release last week to falsely declare herself Dina Manzo’s replacement, seems to be basking in her 15 minutes of limelight.
Perhaps someone should have told Elvira with fame comes the price of negative press, but something tells us she is more than happy to pay this price.
The NYPost is reporting Elvira and her hubby James Grau owe over $300,000 to the IRS. Elvira, who boasted about having a luxurious lifestyle replete with nannies, maids, cooks and drivers, was slapped with massive state tax liens between January and March on various properties, including her $3 million mansion.
And despite bragging to Teresa Giudice about having a beach house, property records show Elvira and her husband don’t own any thing near a beach.
Despite the bad press, Elvira seems to be loving all the attention, bragging to RadarOnline, “I’m the ‘Crazy Bitch!’ I’m a hustler.” And though Bravo has denied Elvira is a new housewife, they do confirm she will be appearing in a few more episodes of the Real Housewives of New Jersey. No word yet on what Elvira will be doing in the upcoming episodes. Perhaps she will be helping Teresa plan a ‘We’re bankrupt but fabulous party.’ We kid, we kid.
Multiple media outlets are reporting Vienna spent the entire weekend shopping around her Bachelor break up story to a tabloid, even before she officially broke up with Jake. So how much did Vienna receive for her explosive Star magazine interview? According to Popeater, she received a huge payday of $90,000.
“Jake was totally blindsided. Not only did he have no idea that Vienna was calling off their three-month engagement, he also had no idea that she would be the type of girl to profit from the breakup,” adds a source.
But don’t go feeling sorry for Jake just yet because multiple sources believe he never truly loved Vienna and was only staying with her for “fame.” The Hollywoodlife reports Jake has spent almost 10 years trying to break into acting, and he knew picking Vienna would lead to more controversy, more publicity, and more opportunities ala Dancing With The Stars.
A source tells RadarOnline, “She was trying to be a loving, second half to him but he didn’t reciprocate,” the source said. “She wanted a real relationship but he wanted an arm doll and a fake life for publicity.”
One person who isn’t surprised by this sudden break up is Jake’s ex Tanya Douglas. If you recall, Tanya gave multiple interviews this year saying Jake wanted to get back together with her after picking Vienna. “Oh, I’m so surprised,” Tanya sarcastically said on That Guy Kramer radio show after being told that Jake and Vienna were over.
And despite multiple media outlets confirming Vienna dumped Jake via phone, Jake is sticking to his claim that he did the dumping on the phone. When asked by PEOPLE magazine why he broke up by phone, Jake gives a rather interesting answer. He claims the distrust issues with Vienna were preventing him from getting into character for his guest role on Drop Dead Diva, and ending things with Vienna would be the only way he could get out of his “head” and give the character justice. Folks we are not making this up.
“One of the keys to acting is you have to get out of your head,” Jake, 32, tells PEOPLE. “This [show] didn’t hire me to be Jake, they hired me to play Toby Davlin. I can’t be Jake and sell this character.”
Troubled by what he termed “trust issues” with Vienna, 24, Jake says he broke up with her in a phone call Monday night.
“I’ve been trying to put all that aside so that I can give this character justice,” he says. “It’s been a struggle thinking about my relationship and going in front of the camera and shooting.”
Yikes, must say Jake’s words are not helping him shoot down those fame whore rumors. And as for ABC’s reaction to this very nasty public split? Popeater reveals ABC is very upset with the way Vienna handled this and are worried that another ‘Bachelor’ breakup will hurt the entire franchise. You don’t say ABC?
“Once people stop believing the show is about finding true love and instead making these awful people famous, they will stop watching,” reveals the industry source. Seems like ABC has very good reason to be worried.
