Last night’s Teen Mom 2 was thirty minutes longer than it needed to be. Why MTV, do you need to draw out this drama past its allotted hour? If the show had just been in its normal time slot, I wouldn’t have seen Leah file for divorce or Kailyn cheat on Jordan with Jo. Of course, I also wouldn’t have seen Chelsea work towards her GED (you go, girl!), or Jenelle check herself into rehab for her addiction issues. Oh MTV, you’re both a b*tch and a lover…
Jenelle is on probation, but she’ll be scott-free if she can stay clean for one year. She’s not allowed to fraternize with anyone who has pending drug charges, and that includes Kieffer. She’s back in Barbara’s house, and it’s back to status quo with the pair cussing and screaming at each other in front of poor Jace. This child deserves so much more than these MTV cameras are providing. Jenelle feels like her world is coming to an end because she can’t smoke and she can only communicate with Kieffer via phone. She talks to him about breaking up since they won’t be able to see each other in person for at least twelve months. He’s on board. That should tell the out-of-touch-with-reality Jenelle a lot.

Following the highly dramatic second season of Love & Hip Hop, and the non-reunion recap show, Yandy Smith is now opening up on a whole lot in a new interview.
Talking to VH1, Yandy confirms what we reported, which is that Chrissy Lampkin was indeed the reason VH1 could not film a typical reunion, as she refused to be in the same room with Yandy because Yandy refuses to bow down to her unlike Emily and Olivia. Diva much?
Yandy also reveals the status of her relationship withJim Jonesand Mama Jones today, discusses how she actually helped create the Love & Hip Hop series, and responds to all those rumors out about her – including the pesky one that she’s pregnant. Below are excerpts from Yandy’s interview:
What are your thoughts on the recap episode?
I was a little apprehensive, I was a little upset at the last few episodes with Erica and I was like ‘Oh my god, you guys made it look like I was setting Kim up!’ so I was kind of upset with production and Mona [Scott-Young] and I was like, why aren’t we doing a regular reunion show, I want to address people and certain things that were said and done, and Mona was like well, Chrissy doesn’t want to tape with you. I was like with me?? Why not? So I was like, I only want to do it if I can address the things that have happened because I don’t like looking a certain type of way.
I know that you were around for the filming on season one. I don’t know what your role was though. Were you on the set a lot?
No, I pitched the show but it was called, ‘Keeping Up With the Joneses.’ I pitched it. We couldn’t really get Jim to commit the way we needed him to, so I called my good friend Mona and she came in and she was pitching a show to another network about the women behind the scenes in hip-hop. So we put our brains together, and we figured out that we did the same kind of concept that she had but with Jim and Chrissy. Season one, I was actually overseas with Missy Elliott. I was overseas for three months, and that was the whole taping. I came back the day of Chrissy’s proposal to Jim and I was there for that. You’ll see me on clips briefly in that proposal scene.
Have you spoken to Jim at all since everything ended?
Nope, I haven’t.
And what about your relationship with Mama Jones?
I’ve spoken to Mama Jones… a bunch of times. I just spoke with her yesterday. Things are okay with her and I. She got mad at the last episode, but other than that…well not the last episode, she got mad when Chrissy and I got into it at the club. She was like, “That was unnecessary!” People don’t understand that when you’re human, you can only hold your composure but for so long, especially if it’s not who you really are. I’m not someone who gets talked to crazy or one that gets mistreated. You know, I have pretty good relationships. I’ve always maintained my relationships, so that was really difficult for me to keep biting my tongue. Someone just kept picking at me. You know? It was just difficult. It got to a point where I just got really tired and I was like, “You know what? I’m going to quit because I don’t ever want to disrespect someone’s lady.” So that’s when I just felt like maybe the best thing for me to do is just walk away from the situation to make things a little easier for him.
Do you take any comfort knowing that [Chrissy's] anger and her feelings weren’t only directed at you? She had her fight with Kimbella. She’s had her history with Somaya—
Then Olivia for a little bit.
I don’t take comfort in knowing that because I think it’s sad, you know? I don’t take comfort in knowing that someone’s so bothered and just so unhappy that they have to find something to pick at. That doesn’t make me happy. That doesn’t make me comforted. I wish she could’ve been happy and have enjoyed taping and had a great experience from it. I do not find comfort in knowing that, you know, she had to find someone to pick at every season or every episode.
You’ve been the target of rumors, including one about you being pregnant, how do you handle that?
It’s crazy. I’ve heard I got a nose job, people put up before and after pictures of me, but they don’t know about makeup contouring. I’ve heard that I have butt implants. I’ve heard that I hosted a party at a gay and lesbian club so I’m a lesbian, I’ve heard so many crazy things, I don’t know how to explain it. I think people are used to it and know that it’s nonsense. Every single week I hear something new about me and it’s 98& false and 2% okay, I’ll give you that, maybe I gained weight so my boobs look bigger and I do look fatter.
What’s going on with your jewelry line?
It’s going really well! We’re calling it a lifestyle brand, EverythingGirlsLove.com is the name of the jewelry line and the online magazine. It launched when the show launched and it’s doing amazingly well in such a short time. We have Karen Gravanofrom Mob Wives on the cover now, last month we had Mashonda, the first month I was on the cover.
Meanwhile, Jim Jones made the following tweets below about producer Mona Scott Young after the recap episode aired on Monday night:
When all else fails, blame editing or better yet blame the producer! Both Chrissy and Jim are acting like whiney sore losers. The minute fans are no longer team Chrissy, all of a sudden they are ready to quit the show. Perhaps Chrissy needs to accept responsibility for her own bully actions, instead of blaming others! She’s the one who made herself look bad this season; starting with the nastiness by stomping and sucker punching Kimbella.
Moving on to Emily Bustamante, who posted a picture of her and her rapper beau Fabolous, proving the two are still indeed together or something like it. Emily posted a cozy photo of the two under the caption: “Don’t sleep on us.” That photo of Emily and Fab is below!

If one could pinpoint the appeal of Jersey Shore–besides the public’s limitless thirst for footage of drunk folks–it may be the unabashed, unashamed way that its cast members live their lives. Nowhere does this become more apparent than in this fantastic interview of Nicole ‘Snooki’ Polizzi and Jennifer ‘Jwoww’ Farley. While most reality stars take us through a tame, sanitized, media-trained version of events, these two hold nothing back.
At one point, Snooki admits to being bisexual, which is not a huge surprise considering she got very close to roommate Deena in the last season of the show. But rather than be coy, Snooki is out and proud: “I would consider myself bi. I’ve done stuff with girls before. But I would never be with a girl because I like… penis. But I’ve experimented,” says Snooki to the Huffington Post.
What’s a bit more surprising is that both girls suspect that their roommate Mike ‘The Situation’ may be gay. JWoww says, “I can’t confirm or deny with Mike, but if he was, it would all make sense.”
The rest of the interview is a serious delight. Both women admit to having Google Alerts set on their names and enjoy their constant press attention, even if much of it is false and/or negative. Snooki says, “I like it when my name is in the news,” and both admit to having a “thick skin.” Jwoww attributes this to the very harsh reaction they received when the show first aired, stating “..when the show first came out [the press] was so negative. So we had to learn how to deal with it right from the jump. People love to hate us.”
It sounds like the tough women of Jersey Shore could give some overly sensitive housewives a few lessons in how to deal with being in the spotlight. However, they do claim they are victims of bullying (whether or not it systematic, is anyone’s guess). Snooki calls herself “[probably] the top celebrity that is bullied today.” She goes on, “I’m just different and everyone hates me for it.” JWoww even claims that they’ve impacted government policy: “What we do on the show — people say we’re alcoholics. We get discriminated against for drinking. And we’re tan so now we’ve caused these tanning taxes and we’re getting a bad rap for tanning.”
Like the recent interview with roommate Sammi Sweetheart, Snooki and JWoww also believe that the cast’s intelligence is underestimated due to their antics and wardrobe choices. JWoww says: “It’s like you don’t know me to judge me. We’re sorry we’re not walking on the shore with three-piece business suits or evening gowns.” I suppose all those clips of the cast discussing economic policy and the upcoming 2012 presidential election are being left on the cutting room floor!
As for the ladies’ future career aspirations, they have both set the bar pretty high. JWoww wants to be like Angelina Jolie and travel the world, while Snooki wants to follow in the steps of Jessica Simpson and her business success:
JWoww: Angelina Jolie. Not the acting — but I’m obsessed with her. I know that she gives half her paycheck to charities but she’s also knee-deep into it. She wants to make a difference. And I think that’s what separates her from a lot of celebrities who just do it all for a write off. She’s just so passionate about it. And I want to be passionate like that when it comes to animals and children. I’ve never experienced what she’s experienced and I keep hearing that if you go to a third world country it’ll change your life. And that’s what I want.
Snooki: I would say Jessica Simpson in terms of her business and her brand. She’s a genius and she’s a business woman and that’s what I want to be. I admire her a lot.
As for the next ten years, they have pretty traditional goals and want a husband and children. But, both would appear to still want to be on our televisions. JWoww is cautious, saying “I hope reality TV is still around in 10 years,” while Snooki is far more confident in her belief that we are stuck with her forever: “It will be. And if it’s not, I’ll just tape myself and put myself on YouTube.”

Everyone’s favorite Bachelor Pad villainess Vienna Girardi is speaking out about her relationship with ex-boyfriend and Bachelor Pad pad partner, Kasey Kahl! And Vienna is now accusing the Kasey “Guard And Protect Your Heart” Kahl of abuse!
Speaking to Reality Weekly, Vienna describes the fear she felt in her past relationship, which she describes as “hell” and explains why she had to leave Kasey! “I went through hell with him, with his drinking and his anger,” she reveals. “I had enough, I couldn’t take it anymore.”
Vienna’s fear was so acute it led her to break up with Kasey in November, move out of their Beverly Hills apartment, and literally flee to Florida. “I had to get away from it,” she explains.
Vienna’s first experience with Made-For-TV love was scarcely better. After winning The Bachelorand becoming engaged to Jake Pavelka, Vienna had a similar experience; claiming Jake’s temper and his controlling behavior forced her to end the engagement and move out.
While dating Kasey, Vienna says she was subjected to constant emotional abuse and although he never hit her with closed fists, he got physical in other ways. “He kicked me off the couch one night with his foot,” she recalls. “I have voice recordings of Kasey when he has called me drunk and mad, yelling he is going to f–k a girl – while we were dating,” Vienna insists.
Vienna claims Kasey often promised to change; to stop drinking, but he never did. “He got drunk every day,” she alleges. “Kasey claims to never remember anything he does when he’s drunk. And that is a big problem because he never thinks he has done anything wrong.”
Kasey was recently arrested in his hometown of Fresno, CA after getting into a bar brawl. He allegedly punched a woman in the face, giving her a bloody nose. Kasey was arrested with several friends; no charges were filed and the police let him go. Vienna alleges the woman Kasey supposedly hit is suing him because of the assault.
The couple attempted to work through their issues on the new Vh1 show, Relationship Rehab, where Kasey admitted he had a problem with drinking – but nothing got resolved. Vienna remained afraid of his temper: “I was so scared,” she admits and the couple broke up.
Vienna describes their break up as difficult and said Kasey took it hard. “Kasey wasn’t ready to break up,” Vienna explains, adding that she wanted to go in a different direction in her life, which further angered him. “I wanted to buy a house, move to Florida, and open a clothing store. Kasey got really mad about that.”
Ultimately, Vienna decided she had to leave, but remained silent until now, because she was afraid to tell anyone. And it has nothing at all to do with promoting her newest reality show?
“I was so afraid to tell people about how he treated me because I was scared no one would ever believe me after what happened with Jake,” Vienna admits. “So I just picked up and left LA. I came home to Florida and started my life again.”
Vienna is hopeful that Kasey will realize the error of his ways and stop drinking once and for all. “Maybe he will learn,” Vienna says. “Sadly, he is a good guy when he’s not drinking.” Kasey has yet to comment on these allegations, but I’m sure he will in the next day or two!
Just a side note – I sincerely hope claiming domestic abuse is not going to be the new way wannabe celebrities seek attention from the media. Why don’t they stick to making sex tapes like the good old days. Domestic violence is an incredibly serious issue and should not be taken lightly. I hope all these women speaking out about alleged abuse are being truthful AND attempting to use their platform to help victims with fewer resources.

I. Love. Brandi Glanville. If Brandi doesn’t return next season, can Bravo please hire her to conduct these reunions, because girl is not afraid to bring it. Last night’s Real Housewives of Beverly Hills reunion was explosive, dishy, and far superior to any reunion I’ve ever seen. I’m giving credit where credit is due, so thank you, Brandi, and thank you also, Camille!
Things start out with Andy recapping Brandi‘s intro into the exclusive social club known as high school students masquerading as adult women. Forty going on fourteen! Brandi dispels rumors that she’s a slut, but wishes she was because sex is fun. Camille confirms Brandi is just joking about her sexual proclivities. The KyTayAdrienne sofa is practically hyperventilating over talk of Brandi’s swimsuits and outlandish jokes. They are, like, the most square sofa in reunion history!
Kyle admits that her behavior towards Brandi was ridiculous and insecure, stating she was afraid of Brandi’s entry into the group because Brandi is hot. Andy demonstrates just how ridiculous and immature Kyle was by bringing up the infamous Game Night. I don’t know about you, but I’ve never looked at Taboo! the same way since!

On tonight’s season 7 premiere, Peggy Tanous, who is no longer on the show, makes a brief return as she and Alexis Bellino come face-to-face for the first time since Alexis found out that Peggy dated her husband Jim, “meanwhile, Tamra must work hard in order to make ends meet and is trying to increase her real estate sales. Enter super rich Heather Dubrow who is looking for a new lot to build on. Tamra befriends Heather, but will the other ladies welcome Heather into their inner circle or will this only create more drama between the ladies?”
The show debuts tonight on Bravo at 9/8c and a preview clip is below!
Moving on to Gretchen Rossi, 33, as the outspoken blonde, talks of her feud with Vicki Gunvalson and takes serious issue with Vicki’s treatment of Slade Smiley, considering Vicki’s new boyfriend Brooks Ayers also has issues with child support. “Vicki has always had a lot to say about Slade and his issues with paying child support, she always has an opinion on it,” says Gretchen to The BPlot blog. “Yet now, she’s dating a man who has had similar issues. She’s still being judgmental and a hypocrite. It escalated from there.”
Gretchen said the fight (the one that’s been shown on the previews) exploded over Vicki’s ignorance about Slade’s son Grayson‘s illness. Gretchen admits she “kind of lost it” when Vicki implied Gretchen doesn’t understand what it’s like to have a sick child. Vicki’s daughter, Briana Wolfsmith, has been seen dealing with health problems the past couple seasons. “Slade’s son … has been sick for multiple years, and I just thought she was really out of line,” Gretchen seethes. “That’s really where you kind of see me kind of blow my gasket with her.”
Gretchen is, however, happy she is no longer at odds with Tamra Barney. “I saw myself last season on camera, and I was just a very bitter, angry, resentful person,” she says. “I just kind of woke up one day and realized that’s not who I am.” That made Gretchen realize it was time to let it go and move forward.
I’m still not totally buying this sudden friendship between Gretchen and Tamra Sue. Perhaps I’ll have a change of heart once the new season begins airing!
In a separate interview with Life & Style magazine, Gretchen also discusses making babies with Slade! Though she’s still not ready to marry him.
“I know I want to have babies,” Gretchen tells Life & Style. “But I don’t know if I should have babies without being married, and I don’t know if I really want to be married yet.” Gretchen also promises we’ll see “a lot of personal contemplation” about her predicament on the new season. Err wasn’t that her storyline last season???
Finally, newbie Heather Dubrow is speaking out about joining the show in an interview with Ology. And in somewhat of a shocker, Heather reveals she had never watched the series before deciding to sign on! “I think me coming to the show is sort of interesting, because I’ve never seen the show. I came in with fresh eyes and met everyone for the first time,” says Heather, adding that she started filming two days after agreeing to join the cast.
When asked how she got along with her castmates, Heather reveals she and Alexis Bellino had the most drama! “I’m really enjoying their friendships. Out of everyone though, I would say Alexis and I have had some friction, which I guess you’ll have watch to see what happens.”
Heather was also asked about the jab by Gretchen which has been shown repeatedly on the Bravo network for the new season promo. In the promos, Gretchen reveals she has never heard of Heather before, who can be seen telling everyone she meets that she’s an actress. Heather states, “Oh, it didn’t bother me. I’ve never gone by Heather Dubrow in my professional life, so I wouldn’t expect her or anyone to know.” Right Heather, because I’m sure everyone knows who Heather Paige Kent is!
The new season preview is below!

On last night’s Love & Hip Hop, it was the Producer’s Tell All! I have to say I didn’t hate the format as much as I thought I would. With the ladies not yelling over one another, it was easier to get more questions answered… and they seemed to ask the questions viewers would want to know, aka no John Salley softballs!
The show’s executive producer Mona Scott-Young reveals that because one several cast members now refuse to be in the same room together, coughs Chrissy, the show has to forgo the traditional reunion format. Instead, viewers are treated to a behind the scenes look at the inner-workings of the show as well as one-on-one interviews with the cast.
First up, Jim Jones! The man, the myth, the dude at the center of a lot of the ladies’ drama. This season’s new cast mate, Yandy Smith was the rapper’s manager for the past eight years, and she was supposedly brought on at the request of his girlfriend Chrissy Lampkin. However, quickly, the ladies began feuding, with Jim caught in the middle. It resulted in a total breakdown of Jim and Yandy’s professional relationship which we watched play out over the course of the season.

In case you don’t remember, Kourtney Kardashian is pregnant. Since making the announcement just days after Kim Kardashian filed for divorce, Kourtney has been pretty mum on what’s going on with her uterus. I just assumed she was happily baking a new little Disick and there was nothing much to get worked up over – which is a nice change for the Kardashians.
Well, a new report from In Touch Weekly (available via their print edition) is claiming that there is major trouble in paradise between Kourtney and long-time beau and baby daddy,Scott Disick!
Viewers of the ever-annoying Kourtney and Kim Take New York witnessed Scott and Kourtney have a whole host of relationship problems, which they both claimed to have worked through. Nevertheless, it was surprising when shortly after filming ended, Kourtney announced her pregnancy. Perhaps they moved too fast!
Apparently, Scott has been picking on Kourtney and calling her fat as of late. During a recent dinner date, Scott’s taunting nearly left Kourtney in tears! “Scott was picking on her, making fun of her weight,” reveals an insider. “He even told the waiter that she would have ‘a side of beef.’” Even worse, Scott has taken to calling her “Portney”, as a way to describe her new supposedly portly figure. Scott’s comments and constant teasing have left Kourtney feeling insecure and unattractive.
According to insiders, Kourtney has come to expect this kind of behavior from Scott, who has been downright rude and unsupportive throughout her second pregnancy. Kourtney had believed having a second child would make Scott grow up and would reinforce their relationship, but sadly it’s made things worse! Scott has returned to his pre-Mason partyboy ways and is now spending countless nights out at the bars with this friends, flirting with other girls.
After a recent fight with Kourtney, Scott ditched his family for a wild time in Vegas at the opening of 10ak. “They had a fight, so Scott jumped on a plane and left her behind,” the source reveals. Scott has allegedly left all the parenting duties to Kourtney as well, while he flits around, focusing on his own whims. “Scott still expects Kourtney to wait on him,” the source says.”He’s just a dog.”
Because of Scott’s treatment of her and his disinterest in his family, Kourtney has started to believe Scott is only staying with her for her money! Scott has apparently become more aggressive with his demands to get his own slice of the Kardashian pie; wanting a larger percentage for appearing on their reality shows and lobbying for his own endorsement deals. It makes sense to me, but this is a family that does NOT like to share the wealth!
“He’s even tried to go behind her back to negotiate his own deal for rights to the baby’s first photos,” an insider shares. “It’s like all their baby is to him is another opportunity to cash in.”
So why does Scott’s bad behavior persist? Insiders report that the reality star refuses to leave Scott while she’s pregnant. “Scott gets whatever he wants because he knows she won’t leave him. Kourtney won’t learn,” the insider describes.
I’m not sure how much of this I buy based on what I saw on KKTNY – although, we know that show isn’t exactly a reliable source for reality! Sources have previously claimed that the trouble in their relationship is scripted! And speaking of reality…
Oh, for the love of irony… Kim and Leann Rimes have found religion. And each other. The twice divorced, sex tape siren and the adulteress have apparently bonded over their recent involvement in Christian fellowship. So that explains Kim’s sudden interest in Tebow!
A source tells toofab that Pastor Brad Johnson, who marriedKhloe Kardashianand Lamar Odom, introduced Kim and Leann while they were both attending services at his church, the Life Change Community Church in Agoura Hills.
The name of this church is PERFECT for what Kim needs, may I just say! Hopefully Leann’s life change will come in the form of knocking off the Twitter antics.
Kim and Leann had lunch together this Friday and then met up again at services on Sunday – which were also attended by Kourtney, Mason, pimpmomager Kris Jenner, and LeAnn’s husband Eddie Cibrian.
Kim and Leann have been spending the off days, since they don’t have jobs to speak of, tweeting about their new friendship and their new interest in the Lord. “So nice when your circle of supportive girl friends grows,” Leann wrote on Sunday following church. Kim responded with “Let’s all go swimming,” then teased about it being an inside joke. “@KimKardashian great seeing you and the fam. See you soon xoxo,” Leann added. If anyone can save those two it’s Jesus. I hope he’s up to the task!
In between praising the Lord and thanking him throughout her Twitter feed, Kim took time out to post yet another annoying kissy face photo!
IS SCOTT IGNORING KOURTNEY TO PARTY? DO YOU BELIEVE THAT HE’S TEASING HER ABOUT HER WEIGHT GAIN? ARE KIM AND LEANN SINCERE ABOUT THEIR NEW INTEREST IN FAITH OR IS THIS (AND THEIR FRIENDSHIP) A PUBLICITY STUNT TO REHAB THEIR BADLY DAMAGED IMAGES?
