Kate Gosselin is going to have to work a little bit harder to fight off those pesky diva rumors that continue to plague her.
Insiders from Dancing With The Stars had accused Kate of acting like a diva by refusing to interact with the other dancers and stars on the show. The Jon & Kate Plus 8 mom appeared on The View this week and denied that claim.
DancerMark Ballas, who is the partner of Shannen Doherty, is however singing a different tune. “I’m not the type of person to judge…” said Mark to UsWeekly “And I’m not going to be like ‘I don’t like [Kate]…”
“But, I mean, she’s pretty, you know, standoffish, which is kind of weird.” Mark continued, “I don’t really know her, but when I met her she wasn’t kind of like, ‘hello’ or anything. I say ‘hey,’ and she was like ‘oh hey.’ I was like, ‘Okay!’”
Mark added, “She has a great partner, Tony [Dovolani] who is a dear friend of mine, so I’m sure he will whip her into shape. Whatever you can get out of that!”
Well that didn’t last long. The Hillsmedia whore star Heidi Montag has fired her new psychic manager Aiden Chase, just a week after hiring him reports PEOPLE magazine.
“I have decided to part ways with Mr. Chase both as a manager and as a psychic and will scrutinize my business decisions more carefully in the future,” Heidi, 23, told PEOPLE. “I will now be managing my own career as a strong and independent woman.”
Heidi continues, “Unfortunately recent behavior by Mr. Chase on set of both Just Go With It starring Adam Sandler, Jennifer Aniston and Nicole Kidman and [on] The Hills have made me question this decision.”
According to “sources,” Heidi was “horrified” when he showed up on set, “demanding a significant portion of her Hills money.”
The “source” Spencer Pratt also adds that when Chase, 40, was on the Hills’ set, he tried to “move onto Audrina [Patridge],” whom he not only offered his healing/spiritual services but also asked to be her manager, the insider tells Us.
Chase however defends himself, saying, “Heidi invited me to the set of Just Go With It and the terms of our financial agreement are in line with standard manager/talent agreements,” he says. “I spoke with Audrina Patridge briefly when I was on the set of The Hills with Heidi recently, but never discussed being her manager.”
In other Heidi news, she recently filmed a scene for The Hills’ with some of her co-stars, photos of that below –
The third episode this season is set to air tonight. It’s officially fall in NYC and Kelly Bensimon has decided its best to tell her daughters about her upcoming Playboy shoot, you know on national television.
On the other side of town, LuAnn kicks off New York Fashion Week by hosting an event that all the Housewives attend…all except Bethenny and Ramona that is. Meanwhile, Bethenny takes time out of her busy schedule to attend a show during fashion week, when she runs into Jill, leading to a confrontation between the former BFFs.
TheDirty referenced a RadarOnline article yesterday which showed pictures of Tamra and new boyfriend Eddie Judge on a romantic vacation. Eddie was of course referred to as being a friend of Simon’s in the article, something Tamra denies and accuses Simon of lying about, simply to make her look bad.
The email Tamra sent to TheDirty is below -
In the email, Tamra references Simon’s new friendship with Gretchen Rossi’s alleged former lover Jay Photoglou. Not exactly certain why Tamra seems repulsed by this considering she was the first one to befriend Jay last year, while he fed her some damaging information about Gretchen. All of which she shared with viewers during last year’s dramatic reunion show.
Jay then sent an email to TheDirty claiming he was with Simon when he infamously ran into Tamra and Eddie together in Las Vegas. According to Jay, Simon was crushed, and Tamra knew beforehand that Simon would be at the club.
Sighs, it’s becoming more difficult to keep up with this OC drama.

Kendra appeared on the Today Show Wednesday morning, during which she was asked if she would do DWTS. “Kate is on Dancing With the Stars… I just told my publicist, if I were asked to go on Dancing With the Stars,’ I don’t think I’d do it,” said Kendra who just had a baby back in December.
“I would definitely say no to it, because I am that mom that wants to be there every step. I don’t want to spend three months away from my baby. I just couldn’t do that,” continued Kendra, 24.
Kendra however took to her twitter page to make it clear her intention was not to bash Kate. She wrote, “Didn’t mean to bash Kate just meant to say I hate leaving my baby..lol. Sorry if ppl took it that way.”
This isn’t the first time Kendra has publicly spoken out against Kate. Almost a year ago, Kendra vowed to stop watching Jon & Kate Plus 8 saying, “I watched back when it was good and they weren’t all Hollywood. I feel bad for the kids.”
Kate has been on the receiving end of numerous criticisms accusing her of being a bad mom because she chose to do DWTS. UsWeekly wrote a story last week alleging Kate’s kids were depressed because she’s away so often. Kate has however said on multiple occasions that she will only be leaving her kids from Sundays to Tuesdays, to film the show in Los Angeles.

Has Kim Kardashian become too famous for the reality show that helped make her famous? That might be the case according to a new report.
RadarOnline is reporting that Kim could very well be leaving her hit reality show – Keeping Up With The Kardashians. The reason? Well apparently negotiations have began for the 5th season of the E! show and Kim is asking for a lot of money, more money than the E! network can afford.
And why is Kim asking for more money? Well she has noticeably become extremely popular, and apparently has many lucrative opportunities lined up to the point that it simply doesn’t pay to stay on the show.
“Kim’s advisors feel that it’s time to explore bigger deals on bigger networks,” a television insider tells Radar. “She’s right to feel like she doesn’t need to open up her personal life to make a living on TV. It looks like Kim can make a lot more money than the TV show can pay her, especially through her endorsement deals and doing appearances on bigger network shows.”
According to the source, Kim made more money from her Carl’s Jr commercial than she did from an entire season of KUWTK.
Kim is demanding an estimated $300,000 per episode which leaves the E! network in a tight spot as they cannot afford that even though the finale episode of KUWTK was the highest rated show in the history of the network.
The source says E! might decide to continue filming the show with just Kris Jenner, husband Bruce, and younger kids Rob, Kendall and Kylie, or they might just shut down the show all together and focus on Kourtney & Khloe Take Miami, which was also a big hit for the network.
As of now, the ball seems to be in E!’s court, but Kim might want to reconsider leaving the show, once upon a time Paris Hilton was very popular as well, but not so much these days. It’s likely that Kim needs the reality show to keep her popularity going strong.
