Well, after a week hiatus from Love & Hip Hop last night made up for the brief break… sort of. It was an eventful episode with Emily contemplating reconciliation with Fab, Kimbella and Yandy hoping for a non-existent apology from Chrissy, and Olivia’s manager Rich giving her some tough love.
The show begins as Emily and her friend Teairra go shopping for a statement furniture piece for Emily’s new place. There is a lot of discussion of how the scrotum should hang after examining a nude statute. Teairra wants to set up her friend on a date, but Emily is reluctant because she’s not ready to get back out there. It’s a conversation I could pay more attention to if I weren’t distracted by the giant stiletto shaped bathtub in the shop.

Amber Portwood is having one heckuva year! In the latest drama to plague the Teen Mom star she is back in an Indiana jail after numerous probation violations. Oh dear…
Amber was issued an arrest warrant yesterday for an unknown issue, although it is suspected her arrest is related to failure to comply with the terms of her probation — including staying sober in public. TMZ is reporting that pending a judge’s assessment Amber could land up to two-years in jail for the violations!
Amber’s brother tells E! Online that after his sister missed her most recent probation hearing, authorities went to her house. During the visit, cops went through Amber’s purse and discovered some “old pills” that Amber could not show proof of prescription for. She was then arrested and put in jail.
Following the warrant Amber was booked in Madison County Jail in Indiana, where she is expected to stay through the holidays unless she can post bail. Luckily her salary from MTV should be sufficient! Amber is scheduled to appear in front of a judge, January 13. Her booking photo is below.
This is a disappointing turn of events for Amber who recently admitted to suffering from and receiving treatment for bi-polar disorder and claimed things are looking up for her. Hopefully, Amber will be able to straighten her life out for the sake of Leah.
In other Teen Mom news it’s unfortunately nothing positive. Star Magazine is reporting that Jenelle Evans has no desire to regain full custody of her two-year-old son, Jace. Despite putting some of her legal problems behind her and rebuilding her life, a friend tells the magazine that she believes Jenelle is fine with her mother Barbara Evans retaining at least partial custody and that Jenelle may never be a full-time mom! “I don’t think Jenelle will ever get full custody of Jace. I don’t even think it hurts her,” the family friend reveals.
“Years down the road, when Jenelle might have her life together, it’ll be weird for them to just start living on their own. It’s sad because he’s so happy when he’s with her,” the friend continued, adding that Jenelle is “great with Jace.”
Apparently part of the problem for Jenelle is the Teen Mom 2 star, who signed over custody to her mother following a tumultuous year which included an arrest and a stint in rehab, has gone boy-crazy since her mother stepped in. “Jenelle is obsessed with male attention,” the source discloses “She wants whatever she can get.” #priorities
“It’s not Jace’s fault he was born to Jenelle,” the source — who believes Jace is safer with Barabara — continues, “Barbara didn’t do this for Jenelle; she did it for Jace.” Hopefully Jenelle will realize the importance of motherhood and consider how much her son needs her.
ARE YOU SURPRISED AMBER WAS ARRESTED? DID THE JUDGE MAKE THE RIGHT CHOICE? SHOULD JENELLE BE MORE CONCERNED WITH GETTING HER SON BACK?

On last night’s Real Housewives of Atlanta the ladies don’t disappoint. Cynthia Bailey opens her modeling agency, while Kandi Burruss consults with a country star. Sheree Whitfield and Phaedra Parks part ways professionally and Kim Zolciak is movin’ on up, Jefferson’s style. Nene Leakes also makes an appearance.
The episode begins as Sheree comes to Phaedra’s office to discuss her child support case. Phaedra feels that the hearing went very well, while Sheree is concerned that her case is flailing. Phaedra tries to explain the law to her client and defends her representation to a doubtful Sheree. Sheree thinks that the pair was blindsided in court, and they squabble about when the retainer was paid. Phaedra doesn’t want this case to come between her and her friend, so the ladies decide to end their business relationship with Phaedra referring Sheree to a different attorney. The duo part ways amicably (for now), with Sheree wishing her two-day lawyer had accomplished more and Phaedra wondering what kind of service her friend expects after hiring her twenty-four hours (give or take) in advance. WWJJD? (Judge Judy…in case you were wondering!)

Speaking to Star magazine, Russell’s ex-wife Barbara Fredrickson, and his former fiancé Milette Fields, both accuse Taylor of being heartless and self-centered following his suicide. Barbara and Millette (both have kids with Russell — Aiden, 14, and Griffin, 11) say Taylor couldn’t be bothered to break the news of Russell’s passing in person.
“She never called us to say he passed away,” Barbara tells Star. “She could have said, ‘Before this hits the news, this is what happened.’ I would have done that, but she didn’t.”
They also claim Taylor failed to call her estranged husband’s mother to offer her condolences. “She e-mailed Russell’s nephew to ask his mom to call her,” Barbara reveals. “She never said, ‘We all need to be together as a family.’ That’s really odd behavior.”
However, the biggest issue the ladies have with Taylor is their claim that she is denying their sons access to Russell’s legacy. “Since his death, Taylor has made things very difficult,” explains Barbara to Star. “We’ve asked about a trust or a will, but she won’t tell us. We’ve had to hire lawyers to get answers.” Millete adds, “Nothing has been given to our sons — not even a T-shirt, a tie, or a family photo.”
Another issue is Taylor’s tell-all book, set to be released in February, which will include her allegations of abuse at the hands of Russell. “Enough is enough! Let the children mourn and remember their father in a good light,” fumes Barbara. “Shame on her for profiting from her husband’s tragic death.”
While neither Bravo nor Kim has yet to comment on the rehab stint, Kyle told E! Online, “She’s doing very well, thank you,” during a recent event. “That’s all I’m going to say. She’s doing fantastic,” added Kyle.
Best wishes to Kim. Reports have stated her rehab stint will be for 30 days. She is also expected to be released around the same time Bravo plans to film the RHOBH reunion. Some are now questioning whether Kim should even be allowed to participate in the reunion due to the high level of drama always involved.
Moving on to tonight’s all new episode of the RHOBH. On the 16th episode of the season (how many episodes are there this season???) titled “Uninvited,” when Taylor’s husband threatens to sue Camille, ripple effects from the action impact all the housewives and could mean they’ll exclude Taylor from Kyle’s annual white party.
The episode airs tonight on Bravo (9/8c) and preview clip below!

According to a new report by In Touch Weekly magazine, Kim, 31, has been miserable since the public turned on her for filing for divorce — after 72 days of marriage — and now decided to take out all her misery on sister Khloe, 27.
While Khloe has been reportedly trying to help Kim cope, what she is getting in return from Kim are ugly verbal assaults. Kim’s feud with Khloe reportedly stems from jealousy because she cannot handle the fact that Khloe is happily married to Lamar Odomwhile her own marriage to her NBA player failed.
“Kim feels like her life is falling apart and she’s taking a lot out on Khloe,” a Kardashian insider tells In Touch Weekly. And what better way to hurt Khloe than to make fun of her appearance — something Khloe is reportedly sensitive about. “Kim told Khloe that Lamar is going to cheat on her if she keeps gaining weight,” reveals an insider.
In addition to that, Kim has also called Khloe “fat” to her face on more than one occasion while telling her she wouldn’t be famous if it wasn’t for Kim. And Kim wouldn’t be famous if it wasn’t for Ray J’s urine!
The insider insists that the recent fight on Kourtney and Kim Take New York was totally real, and that the two sisters “didn’t speak for weeks” as a result. During that fight, Kim called Khloe an “evil, ugly little troll,” though she later tweeted while the episode aired: “I’m sorry, KoKo! You know I love you soooo much! The things sisters do and say to each other.”
Khloe is now said to be firing back at Kimmie calling her a “bitch” at the recent Z100′s Jingle Ball concert in NYC when someone brought up her name.
In other Kardashian news, the famewhoring family has released their official 2011 Kardashian Christmas card in 3D today! Because, you know, we were all patiently waiting for it.
“Here it is!” blogged Kimmie this morning. “It was shot by the amazing Nick Saglimbeni and there’s a special 3D version that you can view with 3D glasses. What do you guys think?”
“I love our family Christmas cards shoots and I think this one looks amazing!” added Kim. We’ll let you be the judge of that. Photos from the Christmas card are below! Do they even send these Christmas cards out? Or is it just to garner publicity?

TELL US – EXCITED ABOUT THE NEW SEASON? THOUGHTS ON THE STORYLINES?
If you recall, Teresa and husband Joe Giudice shocked viewers back in 2010 when it was revealed that they filed bankruptcy to the tune of $11 million in debt. Shortly afterwards, the two were accused of bankruptcy fraud by their trustee John Sywilok, who accused them of concealing assets and hiding income. By the way, concealing assets just happens to be a federal crime.
In a move to likely avoid persecution, Joe first withdrew his bankruptcy bid back in September, after pleading the fifth amendment during questioning by the trustee.
Following Joe’s move the Giudices’ lawyer told PEOPLE magazine that Teresa would soon follow, stating she felt “vindicated” to be voluntarily paying her remaining debts rather than go to jail have them discharged in bankruptcy court.
The NJ Star-Ledger is reporting that in addition to withdrawing her bankruptcy, Teresa has also settled the lawsuit by the trustee by acknowledging that she wishes to resolve Sywilok’s proceedings against her “without the need for further inquiry or litigation, and without her making any further admissions.”
Teresa’s attorney Jim Kridel stated back in September that Teresa was now making enough money to pay off her debts, while also adding that most of the debt in the bankruptcy belonged to Joe. Safe to say the system won this go around.
In other RHONJ news, Tre’s sister-in-law Melissa Gorga recently revealed she is now selling T-shirts with some of her catch phrases written on them such as “Thank you Jesus” and “On Display.”
“We are selling a lot of “Thank you Jesus!” shirts of my website this week! Guess its for Christmas gifts! Send pics! Xo, melissagorga.co” tweeted Melissa last week. Pictures of those T-shirts are below!
