We are now getting a first look at Ali Fedotowsky as the newest Bachelorette on the block. ABC has released some press photos of the 25 year old formerBachelor contestant.
According to numerous reports, Ali started filming her season two weeks ago. The two-hour premiere of The Bachelorette will debut on ABC Monday, May 24 from 9 p.m. to 11 p.m. ET.
It’s safe to say ABC is trying to project Ali as the girl next door by having her wear a pair of sneakers with her dress; allrighty then. More on the press release below -
“Ali, 25, has been a fan favorite from the moment she stepped out of the limo with her sexy raspy voice and a peacock feather to meet Jake Pavelka on the last season of The Bachelor. She became the front-runner for Jake’s heart, but instead they found themselves in a heartbreaking situation when she made a gut-wrenching decision to choose a job she loved over the man she loved. Ali made the surprising safe choice to go back to work, but regretted it immediately.
But it’s not too late for Ali now. Admitting that she made one of the biggest mistakes of her life, she has let go of everything this time her apartment, her job, her stability to really make a life-changing commitment to put her heart first.”

LuAnn and Kelly Bensimon attend a NY Fashion week show where they run into Bethenny. Things take a turn for the worse when LuAnn makes a snide remark, causing Bethenny to launch into a verbal attack as an embarrassed Kelly looks on. A preview video of this is below.
On the other side of town, Jill Zarin, her mother Gloria and her sister Lisa, have a photo shoot for their upcoming book’s cover, but when LuAnn comes over to approve Jill’s look, she reveals that her divorce from the Count has just been finalized.
The Bachelor’s Jake Pavelka cheating scandal refuses to go away, as his ex-girlfriend Tanya Douglas has now given an exclusive paid interview to Life&Style magazine.
In the latest issue of Life&Style, Tanya reveals that Jake only did the Bachelor for money and that he professed his love to her after proposing to Vienna Girardion the show.
Tanya tells Life & Style that Jake only did the show for the money, saying he’s obsessed with being on TV. Tanya also claims Jake was still in love with her when he went on the show and even wanted her to be a contestant! “I don’t think he has any idea what he wants except to be on TV,” says Tanya.
Tanya,25, says she first met Jake in July 2008 and the two quickly became friends. They became romantically involved once Jake left The Bachelorette, and their romance was still going strong when Jake got a call to appear on The Bachelor. At first, Tanya claims Jake didn’t want to be on the show. “He said, ‘Everything I was looking for I’ve found in you,’” she says. However he eventually decided to do it due to financial problems he was experiencing. Jake told Tanya he would receive $500,000 to do the show.
“Maybe I can persuade the producers to let you be on the show and be one of the 25 contestants, and then it’s rigged for me the whole time, and in the end we can still be together and have the money,” is what Tanya claims Jake told her.
The cheating accusation comes to play when Jake began contacting Tanya just days after he proposed to Vienna back in November. And then in December, Jake told Tanya he was still in love with her despite having a fiance. “He said over the phone, ‘Ever since that day I saw you get on that plane in Asheville, I’ve never loved anyone more.’”
“Vienna is being lied to,” Tanya states. “The person Jake is on TV is a different person than when he was with me.”

It seems MTV has run out of scripts as they are now announcing the upcoming season of The Hills will be the last.
The new and seventh season of the MTV reality show will debut April 27 with the airing of 12 episodes. “I think we’ve told the story of struggle and of finding yourself in L.A.,” creator Adam DiVello told Entertainment Weekly of the show.
Once upon a time, the Hills was MTV’s highest rated show, but has taken a recent hit in the past 2 years with low ratings. This past season brought a big decrease in ratings for MTV compared to the success and high ratings of their new hit – The Jersey Shore, which is currently filming its second season in Miami.
So what can we expect from the final season? It will kick off with Heidi Montag heading to Colorado to visit her parents, who see the results of her 10 plastic surgeries for the first time.
We can also expect to seeAudrina Patridge dating singer Ryan Cabrera, and Kristin Cavallaridealing with rumors of drug abuse. “When Kristin was in Miami for the Super Bowl, there was definitely some late nights for her and some speculation that she might be partying a little too hard,” explains executive producer Liz Gateley. “So we’re definitely going to cover that part of Kristin. We’re pretty much covering everything you’ve read [about in the tabloids].” Also look for Stephanie Pratt to be dealing with sobriety, coming off her DUI last year.
When asked if the show’s biggest star, Lauren Conrad, would be returning to end this season, the show’s creator played coy, however promising a satisfying conclusion.
And unfortunately, despite the reports that Spencer Pratt was kicked off the show for 6 weeks for threatening a female producer, we can still expect to see him in most of the episodes, threatens promises DiVello.
Bryson was arrested earlier this month for possessing less than an ounce of marijuana, and for failure to show up to court. A source tells RadarOnline, “It has put pressure on her relationship with her husband Gregg Leakes who is not Bryson’s real father as they both know that he’s still drinking and smoking with his buddies.”
The source continues, “NeNe perceives herself as a real socialite in Atlanta and she does not like the fact that Bryson’s arrest generated bad publicity for her and she is worried that he might get into more trouble in the future.”
It seems the pressure on Nene’s marriage is coming from disagreeing with her husband on the best way to discipline Bryson, who is an adult. “It might make for good material for the new Housewives series but the reality is that it has put a lot of pressure on her relationship with her husband and she’s really worried that her son is falling in with a bad crowd,” adds the source.
Kim gave an exclusive interview to Life&Style magazine in which she admits she is bisexual. She also appears on this week’s cover of the magazine.
This is all the more interesting considering Kim denied having a romantic relationship with DJ Tracy just this month, even telling numerous media outlets that she was back with the still married Big Poppa aka Lee Najjar.
According to Kim, the reason she lied about denied her relationship with DJ Tracy was because she wasn’t ready to come out. We can only hope Tracy is well aware of Kim’s pathological ways.
Excerpts from Kim’s interview with Life&Style is below -
L&S: Can you pinpoint the moment when things became romantic? Kim: There were sparks, but [physically] it was a gradual situation. Tracy made the first move. Our first kiss was passionate and exciting.
L&S: Were you ever tempted to deny your relationship with Tracy? Kim: No. I’ve never denied anything. I don’t lie. I’m not embarrassed by anything I’ve ever done in my life. But I wasn’t ready to discuss it when the story broke. I hadn’t even had the chance to talk to my family about it. It was so unfair.
L&S: Do you feel you’re giving a voice to other bisexual parents? Kim: I’m among the millions of parents who have been in a gay or lesbian relationship. It hasn’t been an easy road lately, but I feel there are no mistakes in my life. Everything happens for a reason. To have the opportunity to speak for myself and to have people understand what I’m going through is really special. I myself was confused and scared at first. Being able to speak from my heart and get this all out, it’s a huge relief for me.

The question now seems to be what happened? As most expected the two would end up getting married. Well according to RadarOnline, the marriage issue played a major role in the break up.
Reggie, 25, simply was not ready for marriage, while Kim, 29, was pressuring him to propose. According to a source, Reggie simply “wasn’t feeling it anymore.” Sources also say Kim stepped up the pressure to get married once her younger sister, Khloe Kardashian, beat her to the alter, and her other sister, Kourtney Kardashian had a baby. Apparently these are two things Kim wanted badly.
The source added, “Reggie loves Kim but he knows that’s just not her. He loves her drive and ambition, and he thinks she’s amazing, he truly loves her, but he knows she’s just not the right kind of girl for him to marry.”
Another big factor in this break up? Well it seems to be Reggie’s wandering eye. Many sources reveal the NFL player has cheated on Kim throughout their entire relationship. TheDirty website recently posted a story about one of Reggie’s alleged flings. RadarOnline is also reporting this week’s issue of the National Enquirer will include a story of Reggie cheating on Kim just weeks ago with a blonde waitress named January Gessert.
UPDATE: RadarOnline posted the following photo below of January Gessert leaving Reggie’s home 2 weeks ago.

The duo appeared on The Bonnie Hunt show this week during which they discussed their time on the show, shared that they were still together and even admitted to being “in love,” (we can all let out a collective awwwwwwww).
Jordan, 23, revealed her plans to go back to school this summer, and Jeff, 31, is back at his old job. Though the couple is currently in a long distance romance, they did not rule out moving in together in the future. A video of their appearance courtesy of TVGrapevine is below.
The duo also gave an interview to TVGuide, excerpts from that is below -
TVGuide.com: When you got to the Detour and saw that Brent and Caite were still looking for the grapes, why didn’t you choose to do the same? Did you think doing the glasses would be faster?
Jeff: We actually started with the grapes and then switched to the glasses. We knew we were really far behind, so we thought they were out there for hours, when they weren’t. I feel like I really screwed up on the Race. I think you should stay where the competition is and beat them at the task, but my choice was always to go down the unbeaten path. “Listen, they’re doing this. Let’s do the other one because I can do anything as well as anyone else.” That just wasn’t the case. I should’ve listened to Jordan a little bit more because I think it hurt us a few times. … I mean, I’m an athlete, so we should’ve picked soccer right away [in Germany]. But I heard Brent and Caite say they’re going to do soccer, so I just picked the other one. … But [we] like to make mistakes. Jordan: It was also my fault because I didn’t speak up enough. I was like, “OK, well, if he thinks we can do it, let’s do it.”
TVGuide.com: Last time we talked, you said you were done with TV. Do you still feel the same way?
Jeff: I think we’re going to take a vacation from reality TV. I think people are getting sick of us, too. We need to let all parties settle down a little bit. As far as reality shows go that are on the air, I think Amazing Race is definitely top-notch. It wins Emmys and it’s the classiest way you can go reality. Jordan wants to go on the Rock of Love Bus with Bret Michaels! [Laughs] I can drive the bus! Jordan: Shut up! I want an Amazing Race re-do. Jeff: We want Amazing Race against fifth-graders!
TVGuide.com: Are you sure you can beat them?
Jeff: No, but it would be a great show. We’d be neck-and-neck all the way! We’ll pitch that one to CBS.
It was nice watching Jeff and Jordan on the Amazing Race, and tough to see them leave the show, but it just seemed at times that they didn’t want it bad enough – for example, when they refused to eat the sauerkraut during one of the earlier competitions. And let’s face it, though very cute together, these two are not the brightest bulbs of the bunch.
