Oh Amber Portwood, even in jail she continues to make headlines over and over and over – well you get the point!
The latest is a report by TMZ, which states the real reason theTeen Mom star was evicted from her Indiana home last month was because she was scamming the government. Which definitely makes sense as money couldn’t have been the reason, since MTV pays Amber A LOT.
See Amber, 21, was living in a subsidized apartment courtesy of the state’s “Low Income Rental Housing Tax Credit Program.” In the lease agreement, Amber claimed she made $10,000 a year, except she earned a lot more, as in $280,000 in the year 2010 alone.
Sources reveal Amber’s little white lie was the reason for her eviction as her MTV income obviously made her ineligible for the apartment.
The good news for Amber is she won’t need to find a new apartment anytime soon as she has been finally accepted into a drug program.
Amber was back in court yesterday, after being officially accepted into Sister 2 Sister Ministries, a live-in halfway house for women exiting jail.
The Herald Bulletin reports that while Amber had hoped she could live with her grandparents before entering the program, the judge decided against it. “I understand you’ve been in jail for awhile, and you’re frustrated,” Judge David Happe said. “But the last thing we want to do is release you and have you commit another offense.”
So for now, Amber remains in jail as she is scheduled to be evaluated by the Sister 2 Sister Ministries sometime early next week. The judge stated that the amount of time Amber spends in the program will be based on how well she does. He also added that Amber will be able to come and go as she pleases, as long as staff knows where she is. She will also have a 10 p.m. curfew.
While doing the drug program, Amber will undergo daily screenings, fulfill treatment obligations, and attend drug court each week.
The judge made it clear that if Amber fails the program, she will serve five years in prison, no questions asked. Yikes. Good luck to Amber, here’s to hoping she can finally clean up her act and be there for 2-year-old daughter Leah.

In the past few weeks, Taylor Armstrong has been captured having dinner with a mystery man. Taylor has maintained that she is not dating anyone and still recovering from the tragic passing of her late husband, Russell Armstrong. Several photos have emerged of her with the man, and many witnesses have spoken out claiming they saw Taylor having intimate (albeit drunken) evenings with said unknown man – who interestingly bears a resemblance to Russell!
So who is this mystery man? RadarOnline can now exclusively reveal that the man is John Bluher, a 54-year-old very married attorney who is helping Taylor combat her lawsuit from MMRGlobal. And just how is Taylor paying for his services? She’s not! John is handling everything pro bono according to sources.
And John is not just involved with Taylor from a legal perspective – they are also allegedly having an affair! Oh, John… run, run, run! “She’s been seeing him for almost two months and has confided in a handful of friends about the affair,” an insider reveals.
Apparently they started getting romantic while Taylor was promoting her new novel memoir. “John traveled with Taylor while she was doing her book tour and the two of them hit it off, in more ways than one,” a source close to the couple reveals.
“It’s a bit of a complicated situation. John is still technically married, even though he no longer lives with his wife in Colorado and spends the majority of his time with Taylor in Southern California now.” John’s wife is Stephanie Bluher – and supposedly their marriage is on the rocks (no thanks to Taylor I imagine!).
Taylor is intent on keeping things with John under wraps until he is no longer someone else’s spouse! “There’s a very strong connection between the two, but Taylor doesn’t want to be known as the other woman, period,” a source explains – particularly since a lot of her friends are against the illicit relationship! Gee, I wonder why… “John is still married and has three kids. Taylor has made great progress, but she’s still in a vulnerable position, so most of her friends aren’t much of a fan of him,” the source continued.
Part of Taylor’s interest in John stems from her desire to have a father figure for her daughter, “She needs to be a role model for her daughter, Kennedy.” Yep, I’m sure that’s it!
Perhaps confirming that some type of affair is taking place is John’s wife. When she was asked to comment on her husband’s possible new relationship, Stephanie snipped: “I don’t have anything to say to you. You can take it up with my husband.”
Well, RadarOnline did take it up with her husband and he had A LOT to say regarding his alleged tryst with the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star! First and foremost he is, of course, denying any sort of romantic entanglement.
“This story is a complete fabrication by someone that wants to hurt Taylor and damage my reputation. To place my name in an article that says Taylor or I are having an affair is libel,” John seethed.
“There is no affair nor has there been one. Taylor would not have said it to anyone because it hasn’t occurred. Neither she nor I have any relationship other than my working as her legal counsel.”
Interesting, John does confirm that he was “coincidentally” in NYC at the exact same time Taylor was – which we know is true because the paps spotted them having dinner together, much to Taylor’s surprise. “I did not travel with her on the book tour,” John maintains. “I was in New York on business and was invited to have dinner with her and a group of her friends and her manager Robert Thorne, who had to cancel at the last minute, while she was there.” A likely story… allegedly, of course!
“I do not spend most of my time in Southern California. I spend very little time in California,” John asserts. “This is further evidence of libel and unsubstantiated falsehoods. Your sources are making things up in an attempt to damage my reputation and to damage Taylor.” John goes on to explain his purely professional relationship with Taylor, and insists he is merely providing legal and professional services to a woman in need.
After initially commenting that she had no idea if the story is true, Stephanie decided to speak to RumorFix and provide more information about the state of her husband’s relationship to Taylor. And she is denying any sort of affair is taking place. The couple who has been married for 32-years is apparently as happy as can be!
”My husband and I have been married since 1979 and have three children. He travels everywhere with the work he does. He is a very hard working man and not Hollywood at all. He has one home right here in Colorado and that’s it,” Stephanie revealed.
And she claims, Taylor is a close personal friend of the family! “I adore her,” Stephanie expects us to believe. “She is a wonderful woman. She’s been through an awful lot. It was through a mutual friend that we met her, she needed help and John has been trying to help her. She even acknowledges John’s help in her book.”
“This horrible gossip is the last thing she needs right now,” Stephanie concludes. Also confronting rumors that John is working for Taylor free of charge, Stephanie insists that’s not true. Taylor has not issued a statement concerning the alleged affair.
Why do I have a feeling John’s divorce is going to be very ugly… I heard Kris Humprhries has a great attorney, Stephanie! Photos of Taylor and John are below!
In other Taylor drama, the attention lovin’ Housewife recently tweeted that she will be releasing more of her medical records! “Releasing my medical records tomorrow2a major media outlet.Doing this for abuse victims not doubters. You will never have to prove it to me!,” she wrote. Yeah… this is definitely for the doubters and for the undoubted payout she will likely be getting from said major media outlet. Reality Tea will keep you posted on that story.
Moving right along to Taylor’s friend and fellow grifter, Dana Wilkey. Rumor has it that the extremely boastful wannabe Housewife will not be returning for a second season! Um… is anyone surprised by this news? Nope!
Apparently network execs thought Dana was “too boring” for the show! For once, I agree! “Now that the reunion has aired, I think the writing is on the wall,” an insider tells RadarOnline. “Both Dana and Brandi Glanville, who were billed as ‘friends’ of the Housewives, spent nearly all day taping the reunion back in January.”
“But while Brandi ended up being included in the majority of the show — and causing a firestorm with her comments – only about five minutes of Dana made it on air. The husbands got more air time than she did! She just didn’t add anything.”
Additionally, $25,000 Dollar Dana just didn’t mix well with any of the other ladies, despite her ardent sucking up! “None of the housewives really took to her this past season and, to be honest, she just wasn’t that interesting,” the source adds. “Yes, she’s wealthy but she doesn’t cause or get involved in any drama, which is really what producers are looking for.”
In a last ditch effort to stay relevant, and prove she is capable of bringing the drama without talking about how much money she wastes, Dana has been starting twittercations with Brandi! “Lately, she’s been trying to pick online fights with Brandi in a bid to create some scandal, but I think it’s too little, too late. She’s a very nice woman but no one in the cast is expecting she’ll be asked back.”
I do think Dana seems like a very nice person, but she was way out of her league with these ladies (which may be a compliment) and she doesn’t seem like a natural drama starter. Oh Dan-a, you’re probably better off, guy!
Finally, tonight is the final – and I do mean FINAL episode – of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills! As hard as it is to imagine after the longest season of a housewives series ever, there is still more cray-cray to unleash! Bravo will be airing the so-called “lost footage” in an effort to extract every single iota of drama from a season that never ends.
If you’re interested in watching more of Taylor and Kyle’s nonsense, the lost footage episode airs tonight at 9/8c on Bravo!

Khloe Kardashian‘s struggles with infertility are no secret. Khloe and husband Lamar Odom have been trying to expand their family and after learning that her sister Kourtney Kardashian was pregnant with her second child, the stress apparently became too much for the otherwise happy couple!
In the promo clips E! has been airing for the new Khloe and Lamar season, Lamar can be seen stating he is jealous Kourtney is pregnant again, while he and Khloe have still yet to conceive.
Appearing on the Today Show, Khloe spoke candidly about dealing with her infertility struggles and how it has affected her marriage. “It’s always in the plan for Lamar and I to start a family,” Khloe explained. “It broke my heart [to hear he was jealous that Kourtney was pregnant with her second baby]. I didn’t think he felt that way.”
Despite trying for more than a year, the couple is still hopeful and Lamar is supportive of his wife no matter what. “We really are like, when it happens, it happens,” Khloe confirms.
And Khloe denies reports that she has been going through rounds of IVF! “There are so many rumors out there about fertility treatments,” Khloe confronts. “Yesterday I was sent all these flowers to my condo in Dallas, and I looked at the cards, and they were from three fertility treatments saying, ‘We hope you try us out.’ But I’m doing it the old-fashioned way.” That’s an unorthodox Valentine!
The couples’ difficulties working through these issues will be a central theme on the upcoming season of Khloe & Lamar. “[The cameras] added extra pressure. We were in the middle of filming, so I couldn’t say, ‘We’re done!’ just because we’re moving. And [the producers] loved it. Drama! Stress! Great!,” Khloe shares.
While Khloe has been honest about the stress trying to conceive has put on her marriage, saying they are not using fertility treatments, multiple reports have claimed otherwise. Allegedly, after months of failed IVF attempts, Khloe and Lamar are reportedly turning to other alternatives. “Everyone has been really supportive, but Lamar no longer knows how to deal with the constant disappointments,” an insider says.
Khloe wants a child so badly she’s willing to try anything to get one. “She’s desperate for child,” the insider describes. “How it happens doesn’t matter, as long as it just happens.”
According to In Touch Weekly‘s (print edition), Khloe has asked her sister Kourtney to be her surrogate! “She immediately said yes,” a family insider reveals, adding that the struggles dealing with Kim’s divorce the family has grown closer than ever. “Kourtney will do anything to help because she knows just how much Khloe is suffering over her infertility,” the friend explains.
Kim Kardashian was also quoted in Allure magazine as saying Khloe asked her about being a surrogate! While Kourtney may be totally on board, long-time boyfriend Scott Disick is not! “In typical Scott fashion, it doesn’t benefit him so he’s against it,” the source discloses. Regardless of what Scott thinks, Kourtney is planning to go through with it in 2013, after she has recovered from her most recent pregnancy.
If you recall, a number of reports stated the two were spotted together having lunch over the weekend, albeit in a group setting. Well, TMZ caught up with Reggie yesterday and when asked about the rumors he is back together with Kim, Reggie made it clear they were false.
Even more interesting, it appears the so called run-in with TMZ cameras might have been planned by Reggie to get it out there that he is definitely not back together with Kimmie Kakes! Poor poor Kim, she might have just divorced the last man on earth who was willing to claim her!

THOUGHTS ON KHLOE’S FERTILITY STRUGGLES? WAS IT A GOOD IDEA FOR HER TO ASK KOURTNEY TO BE HER SURROGATE?
In what was likely a calculated PR move by the press-loving Nicole Polizzi, better known to us as all Snooki, rumors abound that she and boyfriendJionni Lavalle are engaged! This is on the heels of rumors that Snooki was pregnant, which she has vehemently denied.
While no announcement has been made, Snooki has not been shy about her marriage motivation. In one interview, she said,” Jionni’s a great guy, so you know I’m so down to make guido babies with him!”. A source says that the feeling is mutual, and that the proper hardware has been procured. “Jionni bought the ring. He wants to propose on Valentine’s Day,” the source says. She’s waiting for the right time to announce the news to promote her new show.”
Valentine’s Day has come and gone, and there’s been no news of an engagement, and with a Snooki and JWoww spin-off just about to start shooting in Jersey City, I would predict that an engagement announcement would be timed with the premiere of the show, complete with engagement storylines (Snooki Buys A Wedding Dress At Forever 21 and other episodes).
Snooki‘s relationship with Jionni has been the most positive one she’s engaged with thus far, in a recent video posted to USmagazine.com, she and co-star Jenni “JWoww” Farley attribute the success of this relationship (and Jenni’s relationship with boyfriend Roger) to the maturity of the men involved. Snooki and JWoww are quick to point out that both men haven’t changed their careers or lives to accommodate their reality-television girlfriends. Snooki succinctly puts it, “They’re men, not boys.” She adds, “I’s meant to be!” she gushed. “We’re lucky to have found guys that we have found.”
In the video, Snooki also admits that Jionni never refers to her by her Jersey Shore nickname, referring to her as Nicole, and that she would “throw up” if he ever did so.
Snooki’s domestic bliss will be threatened in tonight’s episode of Jersey Shore, where The Situation will finally get to unleash his scheme against her and tell Jionni that they hooked up at the beginning of Jionni and Snooki’s relationship. Snooki responds with her usual grace and class.
Also, Angelina Pivarnick, better known as the Staten Island dump, will be returning on tonight’s episode! In a semi-awkward moment, Pauly DandVinnyspot her at a club and actually decide to greet her. After exchanging pleasantries, Pauly D tries to avoid her while Vinny actually considers taking her home and “banging her.”
The new episode airs tonight on MTV at 10/9c. Check out the preview video below!

Last night’s season premiere of Survivor: One World definitely brought the twists. This go-round, the castaways are back in the South Pacific. However, it’s boys versus girls with both tribes sharing the same beach. It should be very interesting! (After watching and blogging, I have to say I am super excited about this season. They are mixing up the game, and I love it. Mee. Yow.)
The group meets Jeff Probst, and he immediately asks Kourtney, a woman wearing a jaunty Shamu-inspired knitted skull cap, where she fits in with her fellow Survivors. Her answer? Nowhere. Looks like someone isn’t forming alliances right off the bat! A guy wearing a sweater that Brad Goreski has seemingly tossed casually around his fashionable shoulders–he later calls himself the girl in the guys’ tribe–finds the group to be good looking, although not as handsome as himself. Another man named Greg who has dubbed himself Tarzan is ready to throw down island style.

Aaaahhh… The Bachelor, less successful at matchmaking than Patti Stanger! The paragon for failed engagements has apparently done it again!
Life & Style is reporting that Ben Flajnik has already broken up with the woman he promised to walk down the aisle with courtesy of Neil Lane and ABC. Ben swore he was on the show for the right reasons despite his insistence on keeping Courtney Robertson after she basically got naked on the first date and was a complete twat-asaurus to the other women in the house. He reassured America and twenty-five desperate women that he believed in love and knew his wife was amongst them.
And despite a rocky start, Ben definitely found love and proposed to one lucky lady atop a mountain in the Swiss Alps. When Ben got down on one knee for his second time on reality TV, this time the woman whispered “yes!” and engaged they were! But not for long because it seems nearly as soon as the plane touched down on US soil the problems began!
Multiple sources are confirming that a scant three months after a fairytale engagement things are already falling apart for the couple! Well, if Ben chose who we all suspect he did it’s no wonder they’re having problems! Ahem…famewhore!
“They have totally cooled off,” a source who knows the winning woman reveals. “They often go five to six days without talking. He doesn’t call her, he doesn’t text. She keeps saying, ‘What kind of a fiancé is this?’ In her mind, he’s pretty much dumped her.” Perhaps it’s watching the episodes every week and seeing what really went on behind his back has something to do with Ben losing interest in said fiance.
And that is exactly what seems to be the problem! According to an insider who knows Ben well, the Sonoma, CA winemaker was sincere when he proposed, but watching the show week after week and seeing less flattering sides to the women has opened his eyes. “Ben started to feel like he got played,” the insider explains, and he is ready to move on! According to another source, Ben is even considering moving to NYC to live with friends. THAT I don’t believe – Ben loves his vineyard!
Ben has become so distant from the woman he asked to be his wife, she thinks he’s cheating! “[The winner] thinks Ben’s cheating on her,” a source confides. “She knows he’s been running around New York with other girls and not calling her. She thinks he’s a coward. She just wishes he’d end it already — otherwise maybe she’ll do it herself.”
I say they both got what they were looking for out of the deal. Fame, attention, and more opportunity!
In other Bachelor news, next week the final four women bring Ben home to meet their families. See exclusive behind the scenes photos from next week’s episode below! The remaining women are Courtney, Kacie B, Lindzi, and Nicki!

On last night’s episode of the Real Housewives of Orange County, Alexis and Peggy quit each other and Peggy quit the show! We learned more about Heather and well, she’s very confident (and wealthy), isn’t she? Vicki and Tamra haul their boyfriends to Catalina where they proceed to embarrass themselves on national TV with a PDA orgy. Aaaahhh… The C in OC, certainly doesn’t stand for class, does it?
Things begin at Vicki‘s Cajun-themed dinner party where Peggy and Alexis face off over who is the boobiest, dumbest, and has the worst broken bone story! They tepidly make nice as they try to size each other up while peering over their enormous fake racks.
Apparently Peggy wanted to tell Alexis about her very vintage Jim experience, but Jim made her swear not to. When it was unearthed, Jim accused Peggy of stalking him and breaking into his house. Alexis being Alexis, decided it was exclusively Peggy’s fault that her husband didn’t deign to tell her about their fifteen year old relationship. Why wouldn’t Jim tell her from the get go and then they could laugh about it amongst friends? I sincerely doubt either Jim or Peggy wants to rekindle things.
