A day after two of Khloe Kardashian’s former step moms revealed she is not really a Kardashian, the Kardashians are now fighting back at the claims.
In the shocking interview with Star Magazine, Robert Kardashian’sex-wife and widow –Jan Ashley and Ellen Kardashian — both revealed Robert confided in them that he didn’t believe Khloe was his biological daughter. In fact, Ellen revealed Robert told her he and Kris Jenner were NOT sleeping together during the time Khloe was conceived.
This revelation wasn’t helped by the fact that Kris admitted last year in her book that she cheated on Robert during their marriage.
Speaking out to TMZ, sources close toKim Kardashian reveal she is certain Khloe is 100% a Kardashian. The Kardashians are said to be calling the report “totally untrue” and are “very hurt” by the comments made by Robert’s ex-wives.
And to prove Khloe is a real Kardashian, the Kardashians supplied a photo of Robert’s mother to TMZ claiming Khloe looks just like her. That photo of Robert’s mom a.k.a Khloe’s grandma is below. I don’t see any resemblance but I’ll let you judge for yourself.
Speaking on the record to E!, Kim called the report “ridiculously false” while Kris called it “stupid” and “silly.” Not surprised by the Kardashians’ response as we wouldn’t really expect them to come out and say ‘Yes, Kris Jenner is a skank who cheated and conceived Khloe out of wedlock.’
Moving on to Bruce Jenner who apparently is a cross-dresser. Though I’m quite certain I could have gone my entire life without knowing that little tidbit.
Spilling the beans on Bruce is none other than Ellen Kardashian. While talking to Star magazine, Ellen states Bruce, 62, has a secret fetish for wearing women’s clothing, shoes and lingerie.
Ellen reveals she first learned of Bruce’s little secret while out lunching with his ex Chrystie. “’Of course Bruce was every woman’s heartthrob when he was that age, right?’” Ellen says she asked. “But Chrystie said, ‘Yeah, until I went on a trip and I came back and he had gone through all my clothes. And I found my bras… He’d clip them together and wear them.’ I couldn’t live with that,” she confessed.
Even worse, Ellen reveals a young Khloe was traumatized during the early years of Bruce and Kris’ marriage after she discovered some size 13 heels in her mom’s closet! “Khloe called her dad and she was very upset, crying and screaming about it,” revealed Ellen. Yikes.
And finally, since the wish of America is to see more Kardashians on our TVs, the folks at Live With Kelly have decided to grant us just that.
Yes, Kim Kardashian will be co-hosting the show with Kelly Ripaon January 23. Kim, who will discuss the upcoming season of Keeping Up With The Kardashians while she co-hosts, will reportedly kick off a week of all-female co-hosts for the morning show. Kelly’s former co-host Regis Philbin retired from the show back in November.

I usually love, love, love some Real Housewives of Atlanta gossip, but today’s story leaves me sad. Newbie not quite Housewife Marlo Hampton admitted on this week’s episode that she had been arrested seven times (yep – one for each day of the week!) but she brushed her arrests off as mainly probation violations, stating she is now a different person. NeNe Leakes quickly changed the subject to something that matters more to her — shoes — so we never got more insight into Marlo’s past. Until now.
Marlo has been up front about her troubled childhood growing up in foster care in Florida after her mother succumbed to drug addiction, but the fauxcialite started her foray into the criminal world early. StraightFromTheA blog is reporting exclusive details on one of Marlo’s arrests when she was in her early twenties.
Marlo was initially arrested back in 1998 in Florida and charged with Aggravated Battery w/Great Bodily Harm of which she was later convicted, serving six months in jail. See the mugshot from that arrest, which features Marlo smiling, below.
Apparently, while she was in a club Marlo got into a fight with another young woman over a man. During the altercation Marlo pulled out a razor blade (or another extremely sharp object) and repeatedly sliced open her opponent’s face!
The fight left the other woman horribly disfigured and she allegedly almost bled to death in the club while awaiting medical attention. Six-years later the woman, who was a mother, committed suicide at 33 by jumping off a bridge, thus leaving her son behind.
StraightFromTheA had originally reported on Marlo’s shady past and cited that as one of the major reasons Bravo had decided not to make her an official Housewife. In response to that discovery the family of the victim of Marlo’s attack came forward and gave their side of the story to the blogger. The family states they have no “ill feelings towards Marlo. That’s between her and God.”
“All that we ask is for her not to refer to my sister as a bitch or even mention her name, because she has passed away,” the family requests. Asking that Marlo refrain from calling the woman a “bitch” reportedly stems from alleged comments Marlo made about “cutting a bitch” or “fighting a bitch” when explaining the altercation to someone else.
“I received a call stating she had jumped to her death, she was a beautiful, strong minded young woman who leaves behind a son,” the email describes.”We will never honestly know what drove her to this decision, or what drove her to that moment of desperation, we do know that she left behind fun, loving memories.”
Of course, like with all suicides, there is no way to know what led the person to ultimately take their own life. An incredibly tragic and sad story. May she rest in peace. Screenshots of the original email from the woman’s family are below.
In response to details of her arrest coming to light, Marlo gave a statement to Access Atlanta‘s Rodney Ho about her version of the events and that time in her life. Here is Marlo’s statement in its entirety:
“I am shocked and saddened to hear of the recent distortions of events and false accusations disseminated over an altercation I was involved in over a dozen years ago. It had been my preference, out of respect for the person involved, as well as her family, to not speak about this incident publicly, but the recklessness with which the story is being manipulated has forced me to come forward.”
“I was in my early twenties, and what took place started out as an argument with someone who was once my friend, over the phone. In the first incident, I was ambushed at my house and badly beaten. Though charges were initially filed, those charges were later dropped and I filed a restraining order. As disturbing as the carrying of a weapon may seem, it was quite common in the environment in which I was raised, and not only I, but also the person involved in the altercation, had each brought weapons to protect ourselves. There was a confrontation, her knife dropped, mine did not.”
“I was arrested and convicted of aggravated battery for which I served 6 months in jail. What is so disturbing about the false reports now circulating is that it was she, my friend, who appeared in court on my behalf and fought to reduce my sentence.”
“Like many people, I was deeply saddened by her untimely death – 6 years later – and shocked at the recent attempts to connect me to it. Ultimately, it does a disservice to her and her family, to guess and draw conclusions as to her state of mind when she committed suicide.”
“Those reasons are obviously personal and painful and do not deserve to be speculated on for the purposes of entertainment or drawing readers to your site. She and her family remain in my prayers.”
My attorneys will be sending a cease and desist letter with a request for retraction shortly.”
It’s a shocking and interesting story and, as with all cases, everyone involved has their own truth. Marlo continues to remain a “recurring” character on RHOA and Bravo has not made mention of giving Marlo an increased or permanent role on the cast. My guess is that with all the legal imbroglios happening with the Giudices, the Lauritas, the Armstrongs, etc. they made the decision to distance themselves for the duration. We’ll see what happens…
Thank goodness Phaedra Parks is well armed should the need arise. You know she’s the type of woman who carries a .9mm inlaid with mother of pearl in her purse. I’m sure she keeps it wrapped in the prayer cloth and stashed right next to the holy water and taser! Can you tell I’m a Designing Women fan?
Also, thank goodness Marlo (or her assistant) spelled “cease and desist” correctly, unlike some Housewives who obviously cannot read or pronounce the phrase (ahem… Tamra Barney!).

Even more horrific, if all works out for Jill, the show will be on FOX a.k.a. a major network. The Hollywood Reporter broke the news yesterday with sources telling the site FOX is in talks with Jill about her own show to be tentatively titled The Beverly Jillbillies.
Jill’s show will be based on her move to Los Angeles to build her own fashion empire. The show’s producers and FOX declined to comment on the news, while Jill has recently admitted she is currently house-hunting in Los Angeles. Let’s not count those eggs before they hatch now Jill!
Since being fired by Bravo last September, Jill has continued to leak out stories stories have continued to magically appear on blogs about Jill getting a spinoff. I’m, however, having major doubts that Jill will get a show at least not on FOX as most major non-cable networks tend to shy away from personal reality shows instead focusing on more competition based reality shows such as American Idol, Survivor, etc.
Moving on to some not so scary news as another report is stating Ramona Singer wants in on the Celebrity Apprentice action! Okay maybe this is just as scary as the previous story.
A source reveals to amNewYork that Ramona is “trying to convince” Donald Trump to cast her in the next season of his NBC show. Ramona, never one to shy away from an awkward public moment, even brought up the idea to The Donald while she attended a recent function with him in Florida days ago.
“Ramona says that if ["Real Housewives of New Jersey" star] Teresa Giudice can compete, then Ramona most certainly can,” the source said.
Well, she does have that whole crazy, unpredictable and combative housewife flare down so perhaps she is a perfect fit for the show afterall!

Following the Miami fight betweenYandy Smithand Chrissy Lampkin, who might or might not be in desperate need of a hobby, Olivia is now speaking out about being stuck in the middle of both ladies. It turns out Olivia has actually known Yandy much longer than Chrissy.
In the interview with the Necole Bitchie blog, Olivia also gives us the status of her music career and talks being in love with her new beau! (A photo of Olivia and her new boyfriend is below.)
Here are excerpts from Olivia’s interview:
Ok, let’s get right into it. Do you feel caught in the middle of this war between Chrissy and Yandy?
You know what, I do. See, I’ve known Yandy for 8 years. From my Violator days. And we’re friends. And I’ve known Chrissy, well since we first started filming, so for 2 years now. But with Chrissy it was a fast bond. We just met and clicked and I was like ‘Yeah this is easy’. So when I found out Yandy was joining the cast, I figured because they knew each other though Jim, that it would be good. ‘This should be a breeze, there should be no drama.’ I was wrong. It’s caught me off guard. I do feel completely caught in the middle.
Is the situation repairable?
At one point I thought it was. I don’t know about now. But I do believe anything is repairable. One thing about Chrissy is when she does calm down, she will be like ‘You know what, I can give you one more try.” She’s not some unreasonable person. And I personally hope she’s not done with Yandy.
In your opinion, does one hold more blame than the other?
Coming from Chrissy’s side you can understand why she’s mad. I mean you see Yandy give her the book. But then you have to know Yandy. She really is a good person. Yandy really was trying to help. And then when we were at the showcase, and Yandy got up to dance to Mama Jones song…You have to understand Yandy has a great relationship with Mama Jones so why wouldn’t she show support and dance to her song? But then you can see why Chrissy’s mad. If you know the song is about Chrissy and you two aren’t on the best term right now, then you can see how Chrissy would take this as a diss. So it’s hard because both sides are equally right to both people.
You really are right in the middle.
I’m definitely in between them. Just know this, I won’t let them fight.
What’s going on with the music?
I’ve got my new single, which is doing very well. So I’m happy. I finally get to do the music I want.
What’s going on with the third deal? Are you still looking?
It’s difficult. We’ve had a lot of deals offered but we need the right deal. We’re mostly concerned with marketing and promotions. I feel like that’s where they went wrong with me. I was marketed as a rapper. But finally having the right management who knows how to manage R&B artists, we can finally do it right. But we’ve had big offers – for 3 albums, a singles deal – so the issue isn’t an offer, it’s waiting for the right offer.
Would you come back for a third season?
Man, I don’t know. I’m not sure there’s much farther you can take my characters. And I don’t know how much more I’m willing to open up. The editing annoys me. I’m not always crying like they make it seem. But then you have a good show about women in the industry. So I’m honestly not sure. We’ll see.
Are you dating?
I am. I’m happily in love.
Whoa. That’s quite a statement. Do I know this guy that’s got you so happily in love?
I don’t know if you know him. But we tweet each other all the time, we’re so corny.
Olivia’s boyfriend is Tarence Kinsey, who has played for NBA teams Cleveland Cavaliers and Memphis Grizzlies, and now plays in Europe. A photo of the two together is below!
While Olivia has managed to remain drama free on the VH1 show she hasn’t been so lucky in real life. Case in point, she managed to get into a nasty Twitter war with Jim Jones’ mom yesterday.
It all started when Mama Jones a.k.a Nancy Jones decided to tweet some not so nice things about Olivia. The reason? Nancy wasn’t too happy with the impression Olivia did of her on the show on Monday’s episode. While the impression seemed pretty harmless, Nancy did not see it that way. Below are some of Nancy’s tweets:
@1andonlyOlivia I hate u,ur gonna hate me,we’re never gonna be a family,I’ll kick ur ass from here2Japan,I don’t give a freakn damn! #Barney
@1andonlyOlivia #homedepot is hiring or either #Barney “I love you, you love me..” ~ Ciao
@1andonlyOlivia don’t ever, ever put my name in your mouth and you were the “puff puff” pass for #GUnit? ~ Ciao
@1andonlyOlivia if uever wear a tie I would chokeu wthat tie&if uevercall urself imitating me bad,bad,day we’re back at sq.1a slap in yaface
Olivia apparently had enough and decided to fire back at Nancy tweeting:
“I wanna respect my elders but 4some odd reason this old bag keeps fuckin w/me & aint nobody thinkin bout u so suck my dick *oliver voice*.”
“Man I’m tired of this bullshit I aint do shit 2nobody ENOUGH IS ENOUGH.”
CLASSY. Nancy has since deleted most of her tweets with some now saying perhaps her Twitter page was hacked. But that is highly unlikely as she also gave a recent radio interview in which she dissed Olivia. Olivia has also deleted her first tweet.

Previously on Top Chef: salty grits, Padma eats ribs, and cookware gets thrown!
The chefs walk into a completely empty space, followed byPadma Lakshmiand Hugh Acheson who tell them that their elimination challenge this week will be to open and manage an Olive Garden location. Whoever can make the Tour of Italy the fastest will win access to the coveted breadsticks recipe. Finally, a challenge for us normal folks!
Actually, that never happened, but it was kinda close. Padma tells us it’s that time of the season again — for the restaurant wars challenge. Yay! This time, they will be separated by gender, which means we are in for some wonderful talking head commentary on girls ruling and boys drooling. Or, the opposite as Edward kicks off the trash talking by saying that the men are stronger chefs. You’ll want to remember that statement, folks.

ESSENCE.com: Congratulations on getting your own reality show. How did it come about? TAMAR BRAXTON: It was the fans of “Braxton Family Values” who demanded it. I kept hearing people say, ‘You should have your own show.’ They wanted to know what was behind the dot com’s and where I get all this energy from. I just thought it would be a great for them to see that there is another side. The Tamar on “Braxton Family Values” is real, but that’s me in the sister role. I do have another side: Tamar, the wife. I’m still animated, but in a different kind of way.
ESSENCE.com: How is Vince doing after suffering a pulmonary embolism in November? BRAXTON: We just got home after three months in New York because he was sick. He’s now walking, he’s not in a wheelchair. We’re grateful. He’s probably the healthiest he’s ever been. He had a pulmonary embolism along with a lung attack – which is like the heart attack of the lungs. We’ve changed our lives. He exercises, he eats right. There are no longer sodas in our house. It’s been a lot for us to go through. ESSENCE.com: So besides getting to meet Tamar, the wife, what else will we see on “Tamar & Vince”? BRAXTON: You’ll get to see that Tamar has a brain, and I’m a businesswoman. There are a lot of business ventures that I’m working on right now that I’m really excited about.
Meanwhile, Tamar and Vince grace the latest cover of JET magazine during which Vince shut down any claims that his wife is a gold-digger.
“I love my wife. This girl is so far from being a gold digger. I wouldn’t be with someone like that for nine years,” says Vince with Tamar adding: “When I met Vince I had my own house. I had my own car. I was independent.”
Vince continues, “We have fun, which is what a relationship is all about. Tamar is the greatest. Like, we’d just drive to Disneyland, then go to the movies and fall asleep. Because we are friends and you can’t stress that enough in a relationship.” Tamar also adds that she puts away her divatude when it comes to Vince: “He’s my husband, and I don’t talk to him the way I’d talk to a girlfriend.”
And congrats are in order for Evelyn Braxton as the Braxton mama is engaged!
A source close to the Braxton family not only confirms the engagement but also tells the Sister 2 Sister blog that Mama Braxton is set to tie the knot this February!
“She will be working out at the gym to be over-the-top fabulous,” said the source, who adds that Evelyn is “excited.” She should be as the mother of six had a bitter divorce with ex-husband Michael Braxton over infidelity issues. There’s no word yet on who Evelyn’s fiance is but a good guess might be the Doc, a.k.a. her new beau on the show.
Also, Towanda Braxtonand Trina Braxtonwith husband Gabe attended a birthday bash in Atlanta this week as Atlanta V-103 morning show co-host Frank Ski threw a party for his wife, Tanya. Some photos from that bash are below courtesy of FreddyO.
Finally, following last week’s episode which had Tamar displaying her over-the-top attitude… yet again, some are now wondering if Tamar needs to tone it down a notch.org.
Tamar blew a fuse last week when sister Towanda revealed she had to leave their rehearsals to be there for her son on his first day of school. Tamar not only got upset but also refused to perform unless she received an apology. In addition, she also got into it with the Braxton voice coach. So we have to ask: Is it time for Tamar to tone down her attitude?
A new episode of the Braxton Family Values airs tonight on WeTV at 9/8c.

Happy Jerzday kids. In today’s Jersey Shore update the stars of the Boardwalk are everywhere – on talk shows, getting tattooed, talking about each other, but is it too much? Here’s a break down of what’s been happening in guido-land!
First up, Snooki got a new tattoo to go along with her new super svelte body. Snooki tweeted: “Gettin tattoo done as we speak omg I can’t . If I could say every curse word in the book I would……well I am. Out loud and proud.”
The petite pistol got a star with leopard print kisses and some hair pieces zebra stripes tattooed on her shoulder to go with the crown and pink bow on her other shoulder. This newest ink matches her very vibrant hair color! Photos of Snooki getting inked are below!
Next up, is the cast of Jersey Shore over-exposed? I mean they are everywhere with product endorsements, creating their own products, ring tones, liquor, tanning solutions — you name it — and now they are headed for spin offs? Is that just too much of a good thing?
Allegedly, yes. In Touch Weekly is claiming the cast can no longer make big bucks for appearances anymore because they are too prevalent! “They’ve saturated the market,” an insider claims. “Their popularity has dropped and venues are bored of them.” Well, they are only good at a few things: getting drunk, acting skanky and acting a mess… so yeah, I mean it’s not like they have actual talents to fall back on!
Over exposure or no, that certainly didn’t stop several clubs from booking them for New Years Eve celebrations. Of course, I don’t know how much money they earned to show up!
Finally, the ladies of Seaside Heights gossiped to MTV News about The Unit, The Situation’s brother from another mother. And if you’re wondering what The Unit refers to — it’s below his belt thankyouverymuch!
“The Unit is another part of Mike,” Deena Cortese explained. “He’s like Mike’s unit, it’s kind of unreal. He kind of, like, gives Mike more ‘umph’ to be, like, a jerk.” According to Snooki, “He’s like Mike times 10, so it’s, like, gross, gross, gross. It’s not attractive.”
If you’re hoping for more of The Unit’s U-nique charms he’ll be hanging around in a few more episodes this season. Lucky us!
I hope you’re ready because the second episode of the fifth season airs tonight on MTV (10/9c). Get your cocktails ready!
