New day and new time! Millionaire Matchmakeris still here, and Patti Stangerhas a whole new night to make her feel better about herself. We begin this episode in true Patti fashion with her showing off her body her DVDs. She is telling her manager how skinny she is while he is telling her she needs to find a man.
The manager explains she is a matchmaker, so she should take her own advice and set herself up. What a marvelous idea! Viewers have been saying that for weeks, but finally someone tells her. What does Patti say? Surprisingly, nothing, maybe he hit a nerve. Destin, in a hat he stole from Joe Gorga, introduces our millionaires this week. All I can say is meet Mr. Boring and Mr. More Boring. Southern boy Brandon Broussard is recovering from a break-up and needs true love, and playboy William Stern wants a girl to bring home to mama (isn’t that same story every week?).
Patti meets Brandon and decides she likes him because he is sweet, writes poetry, and is from Louisiana. She also explains he is a good guy because he owns up to his mistakes. Maybe Patti will learn a thing or two from this millionaire?

As suspected, Evelyn Lozada’sself imposed hiatus from twitter did not last long!
After the Basketball Wives star announced she has quit the twitter on Tuesday, she officially signed back on this morning and has been tweeting up a storm since.
As we reported yesterday, Evelyn not only “quit” twitter, but also the Basketball Wives after reports came out stating she once had a fling with her fiance Chad Ochocinco’s buddie Terrell Owens. Chad tweeted, “You don’t know how much it hurts,” which led to the speculation that the two might have called it quits. In addition to that a source confirmed to us that Chad did indeed dump Evelyn over the TO rumors which he believed to be true.
Well fast forward to today, and Evelyn really wants to assure us all is well between the two! She also denies ever having a fling with TO.
Evelyn wrote, “***RUMORS TO CLEAR UP*** I am not pregnant people and me and @ochocinco are still together! STOP BELIEVING THE LIES “THIS” BLOG POSTS!!” Uh uh.
Below are more of Evelyn’s tweets –
Our source insists Chad did indeed dump Evelyn over the rumors. Perhaps they have now made up. A look at Chad’s twitter shows he hasn’t updated his page since Tuesday when he tweeted, “You don’t know how much it hurts.” Plus Chad also unfollowed Evelyn on twitter and has yet to start following her again. No word yet on whether Evelyn has also done a 180 on “quitting” the Basketball Wives.

It’s the seventh episode of what is officially the most boring crop of Project Runway designers – fashion wise – in the history of the show. Perhaps that’s just my opinion, but I’m the writer here, so I get to give it. Sadly in this episode there was a ticking time-bomb named Joshua and cursing is just soooo unattractive to him! It also included a lot of ugly prints, a lot of neon, and a completely befuddled fashion editor who broke her stone-cold b!tch face for a few obvious glares and shocked expression.
Things began with Joshua M waking up on the bitchy side of the bed! Heidi announces there will be another team challenge and everyone groans and wonders when the horror will cease. This time the designers must work in two teams of five to produce a cohesive collection of textiles they created on the HP Intel Touchsmart Pads. Each team must have five looks and three must incorporate the custom created textiles.

Well for starters, the show premiered to high ratings for the Bravo network. While some were concerned over what impact Russell’s passing would have on the show, it appears there was no reason for that as over 2.2 million viewers tuned in for the season debut. That is a 42% increase from the season one premiere last year. Those numbers are even more impressive considering Monday was a holiday.
But back to Taylor as Radaronline is reporting that Bravo executives gave her an advance copy of the show which had been re-edited due to the recent events. She was able to watch it before it aired on Labor Day. An insider reveals, “Taylor watched the entire episode several days ago. She was very moved by the heartfelt comments that each of the Housewives made regarding Russell’s suicide. There were a lot of tears shed as she watched the episode.”
The source continues, “Taylor didn’t watch the season premiere with any of the Housewives. Kyle, Adrienne and Lisa are in New York City doing press for the show. However, Kyle did call Taylor to check-in with her. Kyle and Taylor are very close. Taylor was very emotional watching it, but she is very supportive of how Bravo is handling Russell’s suicide. Taylor believes that watching the show now will be cathartic and healing for her.” As for Kennedy, Taylor’s five-year-old daughter with Russell, the insider says, “[She] has started school, and doing well. Taylor is now trying to put her life back together.”
And while it may be healing for Taylor to watch the season, it will no doubt be hard. According to one source, Bravo plans to air footage of the couple’s marriage counseling, parts of which were filmed for the series. The insider reveals, “Bravo has made the decision to air their marriage counseling sessions. Taylor is supportive of the network airing the therapy sessions. Bravo will be looking at those sessions and doing any necessary edits if needed, given Russell’s suicide. Both Russell and Taylor were filmed individually during their sessions. Taylor’s will definitely be airing, although it’s likely that Russell’s individual sessions won’t be.” Both Taylor and Russell agreed to let the network document their sessions.
However, some reports say otherwise. A mouthpiece for the network commented, “The producers and Bravo are in the process of re-editing the entire series. As a result, any report regarding the content of upcoming episodes is mere speculation.” The couple was seeing Dr. Charles Sophy for help with their crumbling marriage. Before Russell’s suicide, the pair’s marital problems were set to be a big story line of the season. However, Bravo has since edited the season, so some speculate that the sessions will not be included. The premiere episode cut original footage of Taylor shopping for lingerie in an effort to spice up her love life with Russell. However, it aired the tense dinner party at Adrienne Maloof’s where Taylor felt attacked by Ken Vanderpump after revealing her and Russell’s decision to seek counseling.
While we are watching a show filmed pre-tragedy, those closest to Russell are still trying to cope with his decision to take his own life. As I’m sure you’ve heard, Russell’s family is speculating that his tragic death may not have been at his own hands. TMZ reports that the Coroner’s Office recently released Russell’s toxicology results, which revealed no alcohol or drugs where in his system when he died. Russell’s family is hiring a private investigator to look into the possibility of foul play. However, neither the Los Angeles coroner nor Taylor herself believe Russell was murdered.
And finally, Russell’s family continues to speak out against Taylor. The latest accusation comes from Russell’s mother who alleges Taylor charged over $90,000 to Russell’s credit card after filing for divorce.
“$90,000 was put on his credit card in June, not by him,” revealedJohn Ann Hotchkiss during an interview with Jane Velez-Mitchell on HLN Wednesday. “Taylor put $90,000 on there,” she said. “She put $90,000 on his credit card in June after she separated.” It doesn’t seem like this drama will be ending anytime soon.

SURPRISED BY THE GOOD RATINGS? SHOULD BRAVO AIR FOOTAGE OF THE COUPLE’S MARRIAGE COUNSELING SESSIONS? DO YOU BELIEVE THE ACCUSATIONS AGAINST TAYLOR?
When it rains, it pours. Just days after it was reported the Whole Foods supermarket chain yanked her Skinnygirl drinks, Bethenny Frankel is now facing a class action lawsuit over just that.
The AP is confirming that not one, but two new class action lawsuits have been filed against the Bethenny Ever After star and Beam — the company that purchased the Skinnygirl drinkline from her for a reported $100 million — alleging they lied to consumers about the contents of the Skinnygirl margarita mix.
Whole Foods released a statement last week confirming it pulled the products because “it contains a preservative that does not meet our quality standards.” Beam also released a statement admitting that while the Skinnygirl Margarita does contain the preservative sodium benzoate, it is in “very low levels.”
TMZ reports that in one of the class action lawsuits filed in California, a consumer claims she and many others were duped by Beam Global Spirits for making “deceptive statements” on the label of Skinnygirl. The label says the drink is “all natural.”
The lawsuit further claims that Beam’s advertisement that the drink is “all natural” and contains no preservatives are false because the drink contains sodium benzoate. Those behind the lawsuit want to force Beam to “engage in a corrective advertising campaign” and pay unspecified damages.
Beam released the following statement in response to the lawsuits: “In today’s litigious society, nothing is surprising. The litigation filed in relation to the labeling of Skinnygirl Margarita is frivolous. We will defend our case vigorously, and we are fully confident we will prevail.”
As for Bethenny, she has yet to respond to the lawsuits though she did defend her drink line yet again this week on her website. Her statement is below –
“We would not sell anything that I don’t personally drink. I’m a natural foods chef and health is a top priority for me and my family. The Skinnygirl Margarita is made with natural ingredients and its label is consistent with U.S. federal regulations, which is why it is carried in stores nationwide and continues to fly off the shelves.
I built my brand on trust and honesty. I don’t take lightly obvious attempts to put my integrity in question. I will always answer your questions and concerns directly and truthfully.”

Two weeks after TLC cancelled her reality show Kate Plus 8, Kate Gosselin is finally admitting what has been widely reported, which is that she is indeed petrified about her future and being able to take care of her family.
Despite having a nursing degree, the mother of eight graces the latest cover of PEOPLE magazine with the heading “Will Her Kids Be Ok?” Under that heading is a quote from Kate saying she is “really scared” about her future. Poor Kate, the horror of having to get a real J.O.B. to care for her kids!
In the interview with the mag, Kate reveals she wasn’t “ready” when TLC pulled the plug on her show. She also reveals she cries in bed when no one’s looking. Yes she went there.
“When [Collin] learned of the show’s cancellation he said ‘I feel like crying but I can’t,’” Kate says. “I said, ‘Because you don’t want anyone to see your tears?’ and he said yes. So I said ‘Cry when you’re in bed and nobody’s looking. That’s what I do.”
Kate goes on to admit the transition from a reality TV mom to a regular mom, you know, like other millions of mothers out there, isn’t going to be an easy one.
“I’m freaking out. Big time,” she tells PEOPLE, adding that her plus 8 “weren’t ready,” to leave the show, which has been airing since 2005. She continues, “Nobody was. I’ve never quit a job in my life without having something else lined up. I don’t know what’s next.”
But fret not as Kate, 36, vows to work hard in other to maintain the lifestyle she’s provided for her kids. “I told them I will work my fingers to the bone to make sure that they can stay here and go to their school,” she says. “There are no guarantees in life for anyone, but they know that I’m giving it my best shot.”
“I don’t want to take anything away that [the kids] have been given,” Kate says. “[I’ve saved] for a little while. People think we made gazillions of dollars, and we didn’t. After the show was canceled, I said, ‘I’ll go back to my old nursing job.’ If nothing comes up, I’ll do it. But the scary reality is, 12-hour nursing shifts every day wouldn’t let me continue to provide well for me eight kids.”
It was reported days ago that Kate, who tweeted a petition to save her TLC show to her fans, has been offered a temporary co-hosting job at CBS’ talk show The Talk.
The Kate Plus 8 finale episode will air Sept. 12 on TLC.

Where there’s smoke, there’s fire! Days after a media outlet reported Basketball Wives starEvelyn Lozadaonce had a fling with her fiance’s BFF Terrell Owens, she has decided to quit the show, and according to TMZ, it is for good this time.
The chain of events began earlier this week when the MediaTakeOut gossip blog stated that when Evelyn began dating fiance Chad Ochocinco last year, she was also secretly dating his buddie and fellow NFL player Terrell at the same time. The insider revealed, “I can’t call it CHEATING, cause her and Chad weren’t officially together. But Chad doesn’t know about it. Evelyn and [Terrel] promised to never tell [Chad] about it.”
After that report came out on Monday, Evelyn laughed it off on twitter, and her fiance Chad did the same. Well fast forward to a day later as Chad posted this not so cryptic message on his twitter page: “No Sabes Como Duele.” Translation? – “You don’t know how much it hurts.” Chad hasn’t updated his twitter page since posting that on Tuesday.
The same day Chad posted the message, Evelyn posted on her twitter page that she was not only quitting twitter, but also the Basketball Wives. “Just wanted to say that I won’t be on Twitter for a while. Going 2 possibly delete my account & I won’t be signing on 2 do anymore shows,” tweeted Evelyn.
And just yesterday, TMZ confirmed that Evelyn had indeed decided to quit the very popular VH1 hit show. Sources close to Evelyn tell TMZ no amount of money will bring her back and that Evelyn made up her mind after VH1 posted a blog repeating the report that Evelyn may have cheated on Chad with his former teammate TO. VH1 has since deleted the blog posting.
However, the word on the rumor mill is that Evelyn and TO, who also has a show on VH1, did indeed have a fling before Evelyn got serious with Chad. After the initial story came out this week, TO apparently came clean to Chad, who then decided to dump his fiance Evelyn. Sources add that Evelyn is devastated and now feels that Basketball Wives ruined her reputation and relationship with Chad. Yikes!
And oh yeah, Chad also unfollowed Evelyn on twitter! Below is a screen shot of Evelyn’s tweets –
The bigger question now is with Evelyn off the show, who is Jen going to follow around?
