Oh, Jill Zaaaaaaarin. Give it up already and stop trying. I’ll admit, I’ve found you mildly amusing (albeit irreverent) in the past, but it’s just getting sad at this point.

The failed reality star recently hosted a “Find Your Magic” Spring Fashion Show at Macy’s in Philadelphia. The event presumably partnered with Jill to advertise her shapewear and her new jewelry line–both of which are sold at the department store–and was supposed to highlight spring trends and accessorizing.

As part of her appearance, Jill hosted a mini runway show and was supposed to educate attendees about incorporating the new spring trends into your current wardrobe, but sadly, Jill again let her guests down. No, she didn’t tell them being a stay-at-home mother sucked–it wasn’t that bad–she just didn’t impart any useful fashion information and bailed after less than an hour. At least according to one, less than impressed guest.

According to the Philadelphia Weekly Style Section, Jill was an uninspiring host. “I was hoping to see something new, but she [Jill] only showed trends that are in every other store,” PW Style reports. “The only trends discussed were bold colors and chunky heels.”

Even worse, Jill “couldn’t name what designer created each article of clothing. Several times throughout the show Jill mentioned that she loved a piece, yet had no idea who made it,” the review continues. “Rather than be professional and ask a Macy’s representative who it was, she just moved right on with the show…”

Sadly, things went from bad to worse after the show when an audience meet and greet was scheduled. The former Real Housewives of New York star demanded a makeup touch-up AND refused to wear a bracelet one of the Macy’s representatives had selected for her! Jill reportedly “ripped it off her wrist and threw it on the floor.” The reason? It wasn’t part of the Jill Zarin Jewelry Collection! A photo of Jill from the event is above.

Considering Jill allegedly has no other job to speak of, and what little celebrity she ever had is rapidly dwindling, you’d think she would take her gigs a little more seriously. Particularly because Macy’s sells her products and heavily promotes her.

So there you have it, Jill conducting herself with class, as always. Quick question: who is still booking this woman at events? #epicfail.

ARE YOU SURPRISED JILL DISAPPOINTED FANS AT ANOTHER EVENT? IS EVERYONE TOO HARD ON JILLZY?


Oh drama! In today’s Real Housewives of Orange County news, Gretchen Rossi continues to suffer humiliation over the man she chooses to date!

While out last night at an event with beau/alleged future fiance Slade Smiley, a man who calls himself a bill collector walked up to the couple and started insulting Slade!

The reason? It was all over the huge amount of unpaid child support Slade owes to the mother of his son, Michelle Arroyo. Slade and Michelle’s son is 11-year-old Grayson Smiley, who has been battling brain cancer since age six.

Right after the duo stepped off the red carpet after posing for photos, the very angry bill collector walked up to them and yelled at Slade, “Pay your child support! Your son has cancer.”

Slade and Gretchen appeared taken aback as the duo tried to enter their vehicle, with Gretchen asking the man: “What is wrong with you?” In the video, the collector man repeatedly says Slade owes $160,000, though Michelle herself tells TMZ the number is around $130,000, which she has now agreed to have reduced to $95,000 in a recent court hearing.

The only good news in this is that Michelle confirms Slade is now paying her child support in the form of $775 per month.

It appears that the mother-son dream team will have some pretty difficult cases this time around, and I, for one, can’t wait to see how they handle this bunch. Meet the ladies in desperate need of tough love below!

Believe it or not, Bachelor couple Ben Flajnik and Courtney Robertson are still going strong!

In fact, the engaged duo made their first red carpet appearance last night as a couple. And speaking to UsWeekly, the two insist their love is still as strong as ever.

While Ben, 29, has been dogged by cheating reports and photos in the last few weeks, he tells UsWeekly he and Courtney, 28, are finally settling into normal life. “It’s getting close,” said Ben. “Now that the show’s over and the star’s fading . . . [it's] wonderful for us.” Courtney adds, “We’re getting there.”

The big question on everyone’s mind, of course, is if they are still planning to tie the knot.  ”No date set,” admitted Courtney. “We’re engaged, dating, taking it slow. We love each other very much. It took the pressure off. “

Ben adds: “We kind of looked back at some of the other Bachelor relationships that didn’t work out and the reason for that is you have so much pressure to move in together and set a date and all this kind of stuff . . . Let’s figure out who we are together before we do any of that and take the pressure off.” Makes sense!

If the couple does ever make it down the aisle, they plan to have their wedding in “Arizona or California somewhere,” according to Ben. By the way – no Bachelor in the history of the ABC series has ever wed the woman they picked.

Moving on to Bachelorette Emily Maynard, 25, who is currently filming her upcoming season in her home state of North Carolina, as well as other exotic locations. ABC has now released Emily’s first official photo as the Bachelorette! That pic is below. Her season is expected to air during late Spring.

And then there were eight. We’re jumping in to covering American Idol, which is awesome for me because 1) I love it; and 2) but for recapping the elimination show, I’d likely be reminded of my Pauly D and Vinny Thursday night withdrawals. The show begins as it should…Randy Jackson is smooth, dawg, Steven Tyler is swathed in an excessive amount of man scarves, and JLo is sporting an outfit I would have killed for back when I was in middle school – and mind you, that was in the late 80′s.

The show opens with the always suave and debonairly coiffed Ryan Seacrest promoting Aerosmith’s upcoming tour. The remaining nine singers are shown the celebrity tweets, which tout their favorite idols of the season. Carrie Underwood, Lifehouse, and Mariah Carey all show some love for those who chose their songs. Poor DeAndre Brackensick didn’t receive any such tweets after his performance of Eric Benet’s “Sometimes I Cry” (sidebar…I’m so excited to be recapping the AI because all season I’ve wanted to hear from y’all how much he reminds you of former contestant Jason Castro). Instead, DeAndre gets a personal visit from Eric Benet. He’s moved to tears, Ryan is excited to have Eric grace the stage, and somewhere Halle Berry is flaunting her engagement ring at her television screen while Olivier Martinez chides his future bride about being married to such a d-bag. Did I digress too much?

Khloe Kardashian and Lamar Odom seemed like a happy couple, totally in love, and pretty blasé about being in the reality television spotlight despite their hit show Khloe & Lamar. Unfortunately, ever since their relocation to Dallas, they have been plagued by divorce rumors and accusations of famewhoring.

Well, it appears the couple may be closer to divorce than ever, with multiple media outlets revealing that things are very rocky between the formerly happy couple, whom friends report are at the “point of no return” in their marriage!

Allegedly, Lamar’s raunchy visit to a strip club with teammates in January has been a continued sore spot for the couple, whose fertility issues are well-known. “Khloe viewed his actions as cheating,” a source tells Star Magazine. “She felt violated.” Lamar and some of his teammates visited Washington DC’s Stadium Club and he was seen handing over 500 $1 dollar bills to strippers.

To make matters worse, their sex life has become redundant and purely focused on baby-making. “Lamar is getting tired of her obsessing over [having a baby],” the source reveals. “They’re only intimate now when they schedule sex.”

The most troubling issue for the couple, is Lamar’s depression over moving to Dallas. Reportedly, both of them are unhappy in their new city and it is putting serious pressure on their marriage. Adding to the issues, is of course, Lamar’s on-court problems. “Khloe put on a brave face and prayed that a new beginning in Dallas would be good for their marriage,” the source continues. “Sadly things have only gotten worse. Lamar is super depressed and Khloe is really having trouble handling his emotional issues.”

Another issue plaguing the couple, is that they’re now spending more time together than ever! “One of the main reasons the relationship is having trouble, which in turn is also hurting his game, is they are spending more time with each other,” a source shares with HollywoodLife.

“When Lamar was in Los Angeles, she was distracted with her family and Hollywood outings with friends and work. He could devote his time with the Lakers and doing his own thing. But they are now both fish out of water in Dallas and there are less outlets to get away from each other, which is having a strain on their relationship.”

“They have no absence from each other to make the heart grow fonder. When they were in L.A. and did the show, it was a reward because that is when they would see each other — but now it’s too much.”

The source adds, “A divorce will not happen anytime soon. They just need a break from hanging out all the time.”

Khloe also disputes rumors of divorce, but confirmed things weren’t so hot–in the bedroom that is–and sex became a baby-making chore.

“Lamar and I definitely want children, but I felt pressured by my mom and my sisters,” she reveals to New! Magazine. ”Kourtney had Mason and was saying, ‘I want him to have someone to grow up with.’ Sex became a job instead of it being fun and easy. Now it’s in God’s hands and I’m very comfortable with that right now.”

Khloe is also embarrassed by how desperate and “sex-crazed” she appears on their reality show this season. “I did cringe a little – it was a little intense,” she said of watching the episodes. “It was during the NBA lockout and Lamar was really depressed, because basketball has always been his passion.”

“I was trying to make the house fun, but you can’t tell that from the episode – people just think I’m sex-crazed!” Khloe says. Khloe also took to her twitter page today to deny the divorce report. FYI, just two days before filing for divorce last year, Khloe’s big sis Kimmie also denied there was anything trouble in her marriage.

With her job as a Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star on the line, Taylor Armstrong is opening up!

In a recent interview, loony lips discussed the differences between reality television and reality. Which is interesting, because I really question if she knows!

Taylor claims, the drama viewers see is completely unscripted, and the emotions and relationships are authentic. “We don’t have writers, so everything is just us interacting with one another,” Taylor explains, speaking to Discover San Diego, “but the real conflict that occurs is all on our own, as much as I’m embarrassed to say that,” she laughs.

“All of our relationship drama is very real. Unfortunately, our lives are not cookie cutter like people expected Beverly Hills to be. So I’m happy in a way that people have been able to see so much of how real these women are and that we really care about each other,” she continues.

“And the fact that we get so emotional is because we are truly invested in each other’s lives and we are a part of each other’s lives.” Taylor is glad the show is able to capture those fun moments, as well. “Any time we are all just having fun together, it makes me so happy to see, because we do have our ups and downs and we’ve all been through a lot together.”

And without her friendships to these ladies, Taylor doesn’t know how she would have survived last season’s dramatic storyline; which she believes was so intense because she was willing to expose more of her life on camera. Taylor claims, season one Taylor was a Taylor hiding from reality and viewers got to see a big difference in her authenticity in season two. “When I watched season one of the show, I really didn’t like me, and I was just a shell of myself,” she reveals.

Taylor blames her late husband, Russell Armstrong, of course. “I was trying to keep so much of my personal life off television that I was — it looked like me in some respects, but the way I was dressing and acting didn’t seem anything like me. And that was a real wake-up call, to see how much of myself I had lost in my relationship. And also seeing my relationship play out on television.”

“Although I knew there were things that were wrong, I could see such a difference between the way, just in our physical space together, how we interacted versus other couples on the show. It brought to light a lot, and I think was one of the biggest catalysts for us going into treatment and therapy in the beginning of last year.”

She calls this season, actual reality and says it was impossible to keep the unflattering and emotional parts of her life away from the cameras. “I was just such a mess this last year, I really was just falling apart and I wasn’t able to keep everything that was going on in my personal life under wraps any longer. I knew too many things were going to come out in the press. And so I really was falling apart, and it was happening as much off camera as it was on,” she describes.

Taylor is not disappointed she was on national TV working through her crisis, if anything she feels it’s a poignant reminder of how far she’s come. “I feel like unfortunately that was an accurate portrayal of the state I was in. And in season one, I was just putting on a facade of who I thought people wanted to see, instead of really letting them into my life. Now that my life is just an open book, it’s a much better place to be.”

Taylor credits the show for giving her the courage to expose the truth behind her marriage, and for allowing her to be a voice for domestic violence, although she is shocked by fan reaction to her storyline. “It is surprising at times, because you don’t know how it’s all going to play out and you don’t know what people are saying about you when you’re not around. So that can be surprising,” she says of watching the shows and then learning of viewers’ reactions.

According to Taylor, the best part of being a Real Housewife is the good moments the cameras have captured; particularly Kennedy‘s opulent birthday parties. Taylor also believes the show has given her a platform to really advocate for domestic violence victims, and she has starting her own foundation to further the cause; The Taylor Armstrong Foundation.

The Taylor Armstrong Foundation is a 501 c3 a not-for-profit, that helps local shelters around the country.
