Last night was the finale of Love & Hip Hop. Given all the drama of the past season, it was a relatively tame ending. Almost nap worthy. Of course, our friends at VH1 tied up all the story lines with a neat little bow, but let enough drama leak to insure another season. No matter what, the finale was not much more than…{yawn}.

Kimbella invites Yandy over to discuss her latest blow-up with Erica. Yandy is shocked — she thought the pair was fine, but Kimbella fills her in on Erica’s recent interview. Regardless, Kimbella has bigger fish to fry as Juelz has been arrested for an episode with a neighbor. Her heart breaks every time she gets an update from prison.

Following a last couple of months filled with negative press after negative press after negative press, well you get the point, Bethenny Frankel can finally rejoice to some good news today.

Despite earlier reports which stated her talk show deal had died the Bethenny Ever After star will be gracing our televisions during the daytime with her own talk show this summer!

Bethenny, 41, made the shocking announcement today on her website. “I have exciting news for you guys! The queen of too much information is coming to DAYTIME! It is going to be an exciting journey and I can’t wait for you to join me,” wrote Bethenny.

She continued, “Thanks for being so loyal and supportive, without you, this wouldn’t be happening. See you all this summer on Fox!”

But before you get too excited, it seems Bethenny’s show will only be coming to a select number of FOX stations. According to a press release, “Select Fox Television Stations — including WNYW New York and KTTV Los Angeles — will run the show in a six-week test.”

So did the earlier reports get it wrong? Well, not exactly. See Warner Bros. did indeed pass on Bethenny’s show, which led to the FOX network picking it up for a test run this summer. Both Bethenny and Ellen DeGeneres will serve as executive producers on the show.

“I’m absolutely thrilled to be working with Telepictures, Ellen DeGeneres and Fox in doing what I believe is the next best step in my life and my career,” said Bethenny in today’s statement. “My passion is connecting to, inspiring and being inspired by my fans. I’m ready for the challenge of this new adventure, and I’m going to tackle it like I do everything else in my life. The queen of too much information is coming to daytime.”

This news would also explain why Bethenny will reportedly end her Bravo reality show — which is set to debut February 20 — after its upcoming season.

Poor Jacqueline Laurita has been combating rumors that she was once a stripper in Las Vegas since the first season of Real Housewives of New Jersey. In Touch Weekly even claimed to have proof of Jacqueline’s days on the pole, citing sources who remember her working at club called Glitter Gulch. Seriously that is the worst name is strip club history!

Jacqueline’s denial of her past employment seems to be legit as it recently came out that the nefarious Danielle Staub was responsible for starting and circulating the rumors! Backing up Jacqueline’s claims, Tom Murro of Celebrity Magnet discovered some photographic evidence demonstrating that during the time Jacqueline was supposedly flashing her panties at Glitter Gulch, she was actually employed as a child care worker and waitress.

From 1992-1993, during the times Danielle claims Jacqueline was stripping, she was actually employed by a daycare during the day and waiting tables at night to support daughter Ashley Holmes.

Uncovered employee IDs stemming from way back in ’93 show Jacqueline with a movable face and crazy big hair as well as support Jacqueline’s accounts of how she earned income during her Vegas days. There are two IDs, one is a Food Handler’s Card and the other is a Child Care license. See the hilarious ID’s featuring Jacqueline’s ’90′s style below! A video of Tom Murro discussing what he learned is also below. The RHONJ segment begins around the 2:24 minute mark.

Of course, these IDs don’t exactly prove that Jacqueline did not work in a strip club, they just show she had other, more respectable forms of employment. There is no evidence that Jacqueline was a stripper and there is also no evidence saying she wasn’t, save for her own adamant denials.

Jacqueline again denied her involvement in exotic entertainment, telling The Huffington Post, “I swear on the life of myself, my husband and my children that I was never a call girl or ever got paid for any sexual favor of any kind, either.”

“Do you honestly think that I am the kind of girl that lies?” Jacqueline insisted. “Honestly? Lying is my biggest pet peeve. I am the biggest open book there is. Almost to a fault.” Well, I don’t know about that, but I think Jacqueline is more honest than some of her castmates!

Moving on, Teresa Giudice has been relatively quiet about her family drama lately surprisingly keeping her comments to herself, but we all knew it wouldn’t last! The Celebrity Apprentice star recently opened up to AllAboutTRH blog to discuss her still-strained relationship with Joe and Melissa Gorga.

Following comments Joe made on Twitter stating he hadn’t been invited to Gia Giudice‘s 11th birthday party, Teresa claimed on Gia’s actual birthday things were pretty low key, “My parents were over and we had some cake!” As for a birthday party, no Giudice child could be without an over-the-top fete, which, of course, the Gorgas are definitely invited to!

“We’re throwing Gia a birthday party next week and we sent our invitations and definitely got it by now. Of course I’m going to invite my brother, his wife and my nieces and nephews.” Either Teresa is backpedaling because she really didn’t invite Joe and Melissa, or they actually hadn’t gotten their invites yet! hmmm… Either way hopefully these “adults” can remain composed and remember what’s important here!

“We haven’t really spoke,” Teresa says of the status of her relationship with Joe and Melissa. “I love them both and that’s my only brother. We’ve always been close and I’m hoping for better days for the sake of our children and my parents.”

And unlike Melissa, Teresa seems to have some regrets about deciding to appear on a reality show, which ended up ruining several of her friendships and causing her family a possibly irreparable rift. “I came on the show for fun. I was with friends and strangers and I was a stay at home mom and thought it would be a fun experience. I didn’t sign up on the show to be with my family. That just happened and I’m just kind of dealing with it,” Teresa reveals.

“The way people view my family on TV was never how we were. We were very private and close. And now that we are all on the show, were not at the place we used to be and it’s hard.”

Additionally, Teresa emphatically refutes Melissa’s claims that the show has brought them closer. “We’ve never gone without speaking before she was on the show. I invited her to all my parties and would tell her about the housewives and what went on in the earlier seasons. She knew many things and we were close.”

Teresa also reveals she hasn’t seen Kathy Wakile since filming the Season 3 reunion. “I of course miss and love them. They are my family and we have spoken since. I just haven’t seen her.”

Fired Former Real Housewives of New York City star Kelly Bensimon is making some real estate moves!

According to reports, the single mother of two has listed her Hamptons home for sale. The listing price? Just a mere $12 million!

Kelly’s two-story East Hampton mansion is 5,800 square feet with five bedrooms. The home also has a sun-filled formal living room with fireplace and French doors, a luxurious master suite with fireplace and private terrace leading to a bonus office or guest space as well as a sleek stainless steel kitchen, which opens up to a spacious family room with fireplace and dining area.

There’s even more as the home boasts a pool and pond on 1.2 acres. Back in 2010, the home was listed as a summer rental for $300,000! The property taxes alone? Over $4,000 a month.

The property is located on Further Lane in East Hampton which is considered one of the most exclusive streets in the area and home to a number of celebrities. More photos of Kelly’s home below!

Some are also speculating on whether or not Kelly is having financial problems due to the home listing, but who knows. She could also be trying to capitalize off her RHONY fame by selling the home now. Kelly’s ex-husband is famed photographer Gilles Bensimon and the property was reportedly part of her divorce settlement.

It’s nice to see that Teen Mom 2 professional train wreck Jenelle Evans can still have some loyalty towards ex-boyfriend Kieffer Delp, currently in jail for violating his probation and slated to be released on March 15.

According to a recent report by Reality Weekly, Jenelle has been making the three hour drive to go visit him and has even been sending him care packages! As the report puts it, “She loves Kieffer as much as she loves partying.” How romantic!

Jenelle, no stranger to jail herself, has been busy with new man, Gary Head, which apparently is making Kieffer crazy. “Now that she has a new boyfriend, he’s become even more obsessed. He’s actually been writing her love letters! He makes her feel like he needs her, that she’s the only one who can save him.” If Jenelle’s strategy was to keep Kieffer on lock while still getting attention from the outside, she definitely succeeded.

Keiffer is scheduled for a release from jail in two months. “He’s free on March 15, 2012 — as long as he stops swearing and getting in trouble in jail,” says a source.

In other Teen Mom 2 relationship news, Radar magazine is reporting that Kailyn Lowry may be bisexual! “Kailyn was with a girl named Shelby… for about two years.” says Star’s source, and goes on to say that Kailyn was in another lady relationship with school mate Gigi Hanna.

The source has some pretty intimate details of Kailyn’s relationship with Gigi, explaining that “They were both seeing guys, [but] would make out and Gigi would sleep in her bed sometimes. … Kail thinks they’ll both end up with a guy, but they’ll always be best friends.”

Gigi was kind enough to speak with the press and explains their friendship with benefits: “We became close again and promised to never leave each other; we moved in together. We know our boundaries.”

If you’re curious what Kailyn’s ex (and father of her child) Jo Rivera thought about all this, you’ll be surprised to know he didn’t seem to mind, with both women! The source explains, “Jo knew about Kail’s relationship with that girl [Shelby]. He thought it was a phase. Kail cheated on Jo with Gigi, but he knew and didn’t care.”

Photos of Kailyn and Gigi are below! Plus some are now wondering why Kailyn’s bisexuality has never been addressed on the show.

ABC is finally making it official!

The network confirmed today that Emily Maynard will indeed star as the next Bachelorette! The confirmation comes just weeks after Bachelor insider Reality Steve first broke the news.

ABC’s press release reads: “Emily Maynard, the beautiful, sweet, young mom who captured America’s and Brad Womack’s heart on the 15th season of ‘The Bachelor’, finally thought she had her happy ending. She accepted Brad’s proposal and was looking forward to walking down the aisle. Unfortunately her relationship with Brad ended, along with her dream of moving to Austin with her daughter, Ricki, and starting a family. But Emily is ready for her luck to change and to bring her the love she so richly deserves.”

Following her break up with Brad Womack last year, the former Bachelor winner had always remained adamant that she did not want to do the show. Her change of heart reportedly came when for the first time in Bachelorette history, ABC decided to have the guys film in her hometown of Charlotte, North Carolina, rather than in Los Angeles, in order to remain close to her 6-year-old daughter Ricki.

Meanwhile, the latest issue of Us Weekly magazine is now speculating that the procuders might be planning to bring back Bentley Williams, you know, the douche from Ashley Hebert’s season, to stir up some drama vie for Emily’s love. Yikes.

“Bentley is Emily’s type and she knows the show well enough to expect producers to bring him back,” says an Emily pal. “It would be good for ABC, but she’s not sure how good it would be for her!” Bentley is her type???

Production on Emily’s season is expected to begin filming in March, with her season set to air late spring on ABC.

Shaunie O’Neal has turned being an ex-wife (or former girlfriend) of an NBA player into a new career and now that Vanessa Bryant is divorcing the uber famous Kobe Bryant that makes her a prime candidate for a certain VH1 show!

TMZ is reporting that the producers for Basketball Wives LA are hoping to score Vanessa for next season and sources reveal they are putting together an “extremely lucrative pitch for Vanessa,” in the hopes she’ll sell out her dignity for the chance to on-air tussle with the likes of Jackie Christie. According to insiders if Vanessa accepts the offer producers will be casting her in a lead role in the upcoming season!

Apparently, producers would have never asked Vanessa to the join the cast while she was still married to Kobe, but now that she is a free agent, so to speak, the door is wide open for her to stir up some major drama on the already insane show.

Rumors of Vanessa’s rather interesting behavior have been circulating the net for years and I’m sure many of the basketball wives have had first-hand experience with the controversial Vanessa! “Vanessa has more than enough storyline and would bring the show to another level,” a source explains.

Especially considering the details of why Vanessa’s marriage to Kobe ended! Many believe Kobe’s affair with Kim Kardashian‘s close friend, Carla DiBello was the final straw that pushed Vanessa to file!

Another reason producers have waited so long to approach Vanessa is budget constraints. Before the show was a breakout hit for Vh1 the budget was very tight —  which necessitated they hire desperate famewhores (ahem… Evelyn Lozada) and wives or girlfriends of less famous players. Now that the show is a hit, attracting a huge audience and branching out into different cities, they can attract women associated with big-name players!

Speaking of budget, Vanessa isn’t going to be counting her pennies anytime soon. New details of her divorce settlement are being leaked and I have to say she is taking the Ivana Trump route: “Don’t get mad, get everything!”

Vanessa is apparently scoring not one, not two, but THREE Newport Beach mansions in the divorce as well as an estimated $75 Million dollars — which is about half of their total assets. Remember, Vanessa and Kobe married when his career was just taking off and allegedly they do not have a pre-nup!

Sources close to the proceedings told TMZ the property settlement agreement has been signed and is official. Vanessa will retain control of the mansion the couple was living in prior to filing for divorce, the estate her mother is living in and the new estate the couple has been renovating for the past two years and has just been completed. No word on Kobe’s new digs!

If this true, Vanessa would definitely be a HUGE score for Basketball Wives L.A.!

And, oh my, were the ladies surprised, but not thrilled when Marlo joined them at the departure gate!

Things begin at Marlo‘s house, and ok, call me crazy, but I love the decor and the color scheme. NeNe is impressed that Marlo read Kim and Kandi the riot act at Cynthia‘s agency opening and definitely didn’t back down. On the tour, NeNe discovers Marlo has a full security system installed in her house, which she can monitor from her bedroom! Who is she, Drita D’avanzio? Is she mistressed to the mob in secret?
