On last night’s Real Housewives of New York, aptly titled “Video Killed the Countess,” it’s video time for Luann and her micro-managing sidekick Jill. Cindy forgets her manners with Sonja, and Silex hosts an art party. Ramona goes toe-to-toe with the Countess in a low blow passive aggressive smack down, and Alex may have been a “Fly Girl” in another life.
Luann meets with music producer Chris, video stylist “Jersey” and the poor director who clearly would like to be anywhere else. The Countess needs them to fully understand her vision, and what better way to do that than to keep repeating the phrase, “It always goes back to beauty, class and elegance lies within the soul.” In keeping with that theme, the video will be shot at a casino in Atlantic City, and there will be a Hummer involved. Luann is on board with A.C., but a Hummer? “You know what those are, right?” asks Jersey. Surely this part is scripted, but it’s hilarious nonetheless. The Countess replies, “When I think of beauty, class and elegance, I don’t think of a Hummer.” I bet Ross GellarJacques would beg to differ. Luann would prefer a jet to a Hummer, and the men, who appear to be legitimate music industry peeps, are trying to appease their newest star diva songstress wannabe rapper. When pressed by Luann about his opinion on her song, the director describes it as “great” multiple times, and I’m worried his head may explode.

Over a month after initially denying a reported split, Russell himself is now confirming the news to OK! magazine stating a divorce is likely the next step.
“We still love each other, but after going through counseling it has gotten to the point that the stress is just too much for both of us,” Russell tellsOK!.
OK! also reports that Russell has in fact moved out of the home the couple shares with their 5-year-old daughter Kennedy. As for what led to the demise of their marriage, Russell, whose past legal issues came out last year, blames the pressures of being on television.
“I want Taylor to be the biggest actress on TV, and I want to feel happy not being on TV!” Russell adds.
As for Taylor, who has yet to publicly comment on this news, it appears she is already moving on. The NY Post is reporting today that she had a fun night out in the Hamptons recently with “Hell’s Kitchen” chef Seth Levine. Sources tell the Post that Taylor and Seth were acting very friendly at Seth’s East Hampton hotspot Georgica before heading to the dance floor for some dirty dancing. Taylor’s rep however denies the story. A picture of Seth is below.
UsWeekly also reported back in May that Taylor and Russell were experiencing “huge marital problems related to finances.”

Keep your friends close and your enemies closer is the motto of Mob Wives stars Drita D’avanzo and Karen Gravano who have decided to be civil to each other for the sake of their reality show daughters.
Although both ladies agree they can never “be friends” again, they have decided to be polite to each other to avoid public and embarrassing roof-top brawls, because frankly it doesn’t look good. And when your friends have to flash their Spanx breaking up your fight – that doesn’t look good either!
In an exclusive interview with Hollywood Life, Drita and Karen speak out about their decision to get along after signing on for a second season of Mob Wives. Drita explains her decision to apologize after the reunion was because her daughters could see she felt awkward around Karen, prompting her to make amends: “I went up to Karen and I said, ‘Look, it is what it is, but I feel bad how it ended because we have kids,’” recalls Drita. “If we didn’t have kids, I don’t think I’d feel this way, but I do being a mother.”
Karen agrees that since her daughter and Drita’s daughters have become friends and see each other through filming and she and Drita are contractually obligated to be in scenes together everyone should get along: “I don’t want the kids to feel uncomfortable. I feel like the kids have nothing to do with it. I’m mature enough to act accordingly because I don’t want to have to feel uncomfortable in any situation that has to do with me and her.”
Although she does state her and Drita will only be co-workers and nothing more: “My relationship with her is just we’ll never be friends. I’m over the Drita/Lee thing. I don’t want to give them anymore of my breath.” Umm… FINALLY!
Drita reiterates that although she has apologized to Karen and plans to file for divorce from Lee, that doesn’t mean she’ll be grabbing cocktails with Karen anytime soon: “Saying sorry and being friends are two different things. I can’t see being friends with her. I just want to be cordial with her. We’ve got to work together to be smart.” She also states she wants to move past the season finale fight claiming: “I have too many things going on and I am so done with that conversation, it’s not funny.”
Karen also declares that she is too busy focusing on her own side projects: “I have more important things to focus on than Drita D’avanzo. I’m focused on my daughter, my book, a movie deal on the table and my skin care line.” Say, what? Skin Care Line? Movie Deal? I can’t wait to hear the details on that one!
So do you think Drita and Karen will be able to get along next season or do you anticipate more fights? Or do you think they will end up being friends again?
For most teens they fear their diary will end up passed around school, but in Teen Mom star Maci’s case her diary is being passed around the tabloids! Oops! Behaving like a typical teen Maci warbled her thoughts to her friend dear diary and apparently, accidentally left the diary on a table where boyfriend Kyle King happened to find it causing him to dump her.
In a new exclusive from OK Magazine they reveal just what shocking information Kyle discovered! After reading Maci’s thoughts, Kyle who believed Maci was in love with him, soon found out she still has a thing for ex-boyfriend Ryan Edwards- who is her son, Bentley’s father.
According to a source: “Maci wrote that she’ll always love Ryan and that she really misses him. And how they’ve got great sexual chemistry.” Poor Kyle was ostensibly beside himself: “When he told Maci he’d read the diary, he was sort of crying. Maci tried to explain it, but it didn’t seem to matter. He left the apartment and they haven’t talked in, like, a week.” Maci’s innermost thoughts became fodder for public consumption when someone an enraged Kyle, naturally called the tabloids! Whatever happened to calling a friend?
Maci is furious with Kyle too – as the “devoted diarist” is shocked Kyle would read her private musings! Another insider Maci claims: “She told Kyle that it’s just words, that she’s with him now. It’s not like Maci wrote, ‘I want to marry Ryan and have more kids with him.’ It was more that a part of her will always love Ryan. Ryan’s the father of her son and whenever she looks at Bentley, he’s a part of Ryan, too.” Will this drama be on the upcoming season of Teen Mom? One can only hope. Meanwhile it appears this story is true as Maci, who typically denies tabloid stories on her twitter, has yet to deny this one.
In other ridiculous Teen Mom news, Gary Shirley – father of Amber Portwood’s daughter Leah -has started a Twitter page for his two-year-old daughter. What’s next Toddlers in Tiaras? According to Us Magazine, Shirley, who immediately came under attack for pimping out his toddler, responded saying: “You guys, it should be obvious that Leah has no contact with Twitter,” he wrote. “This is just a fun concept that will in no way affect Leah herself.”
Shirley further clarified it’s him Tweeting (just in case anyone assumed it was a two-year-old): “This is for her sayings, things she’s doing, etc. It’s all me tweeting!” He also claims Leah does not actually read the Tweets. Sadly, despite the controversy Leah already has almost 5,000 followers. No comment from mama Amber, who is currently visiting rehab after a suicide attempt, on whether or not she approves of Toddlers on Twitter.

With the ratings for her TLC show Kate Plus 8continuing to decline, it appears Kate Gosselin would like to change the public perception of herself, you know, the one that has her as a “money-hungry b*tch.”
In an interview with the HuffingtonPost, Kate surprisingly reveals she is aware of what the public perceives her as being. “The biggest misconception is that I’m a money-hungry b*tch,” says Kate, “My friends come and tell me. They can’t take it.” She has friends???
Kate goes on to add that her friends and family get more upset about the negative rumors than she does. Really, she has friends?. “I have to tell them just ignore it, don’t read it,” says Kate. “You know it’s not true. I am very driven, very type-A, very hard-working, very perfectionist.”
Kate adds, “Every single person with that personality is accused of being self-absorbed, snobby and horrible. A bad impression is given because you are so driven. My mind is on the finish line. It’s an attractive quality as far as men are concerned.” Sure it is Katie.
Kate then goes on to issue a challenge to her naysayers, which is pretty much the entire universe, when she states you should meet her before judging her.
“I really have to tell you I enjoy the challenge of meeting people personally and changing their opinion of me,” reveals Kate. “Because it happens 100 percent of the time.” Uh uh.

This week, a nude photo was leaked online claiming to be that of Ryan’s. And yesterday Tamra took to her facebook page to defend her son, stating that while it is him in the photo, he did not leak it online but rather an ex-girlfriend of his did. Tammy Sue’s statement is below –
“FOR THE RECORD RYAN DID NOT TAKE THE PIC OF HIM SELF…AN EX GF DID AND TURNED THEM IN….NOT COOL! YOU HAVE COMMENTS ABOUT THE PIC SEND THEM TO HIM, I DONT WANT TO HEAR ABOUT IT!!!!!!”
Oddly enough, Gretchen Rossireceived a ton of criticism from Tamra after nude photos of her, allegedly leaked out by her ex-boyfriend, made their way online.
And in looking at the photo, it definitely appears to be a self taken penis portrait, but we’ll let you be the judge.
You can CLICK HERE to see Ryan’s schlong. The photo is NSFW of course.

UPDATE – Ryan acknowledged it is him in the photo before Tamra did on his twitter page. He posted, “So apparently once someone puts a picture of your cock online you become popular… haha.” He later added that he wasn’t upset about it but actually found it funny, calling it his “ad.” A lot of girls are also hitting on Ryan since the photo leaked so alls well that ends well?
