Season four has been the highest-rated and most popular season of Couples Therapy thus far thanks to reality TV fans flocking to VH1 to see train wrecks such as RHOBH's Taylor Armstrong, Teen Mom's Farrah Abraham, and Jon & Kate Plus 8's Jon Gosselin. They did not disappoint — but Dr. Jenn Berman definitely did every time she failed to call out Taylor's lies, supported Farrah's delusions, and enabled Jon's anger issues
Speaking of Jon, he scored oodles of air time last week when he claimed Kate Gosselin refused to let him talk to his kids on the phone – and then he called her a "piece of f–king shit" and a "shitty human being" on camera. I never doubted Jon's story because, um, Kate is a nasty, vindictive person, However, according to an inside source, Jon lied about the phone call.
Kyle has claimed she desperately wants her friendship with Lisa back on track and then turns around and does everything to the contrary – even going so far as to blatantly accuse Lisa of lying several times!
In her blog, Kyle again questions Lisa's loyalty, behaviors, and also her friendship with Brandi Glanville. "It's a shame our vacation in beautiful Puerto Rico started off like this. I was hoping to be able to speak privately with Lisa — without the others around the next day. I had a lot of unanswered questions and really wanted to talk things through and hopefully enjoy our vacation together," Kyle begins.
Unfortunately after being mauled by a bunch of botox-starved sharks, Lisa ditched her Real Housewives of Beverly Hillsco-stars and headed to the nearest 5-star resort to recuperate.
ZMOG – the wedding of the century is upon us. And very, very soon! According to sources Kim Kardashian and Kanye West will be getting married on May 24th in Paris. Poor France.
"It won't be a huge wedding," a source reveals to People. "Around 150 people." Daughter North, who turns 1 in July, will play a prominent role in the ceremony and it's pretty much certain it will be aired on Keeping Up With The Kardashians or some sort of E! Special. Kim hasn't decided on a dress yet, but hopefully her fashion sense improves in time for wedding gown shopping, cause yea – no.
"[I’ve shopped] a little bit, but I really need a good sit down to plan it all out," Kim revealed.
Kim flat out says that she doesn't feel Juicy and Tre got what they deserved in the plea deal. "I don't think they got what they deserved. I thik they should've gotten more. 39 counts and they're down to what? 4? Now we're remorseful? We better be remorseful cuz we know we're going to jail." Actually it was 41 charges, so only about 1/10 of the charges will stick.
Tom asked Kim if she thinks the Giudices are truly criminals or if they did what they did to keep up with the Joneses? "Both. I definitely think they're criminals. And actually i think they're that way because they don't know any other way. So that's been their way of life for how many years. Now they just got caught. "
What do you do when the going gets tough? Well, if you are Mike Shouhed, you sink your bright white teeth into a get rich quick scheme.
If you follow the Shahs of Sunset star on Facebook or Twitter, you know that he's forever pushing an anti-aging skim cream called Nerium AD. Two recent posts from Mike: "Align with me and let's build an empire. Inbox me if you are business minded and self motivated." and "Are you are an experienced Network Marketer with an MLM background and would like to capitalize on the First Movers Advantage? Nerium International's revenue over the past two and a half years of existence has been astronomical, they have broken every record in the industry and my business is an all out massive momentum. If would like to partner with a celebrity or are serious about making 2014 better than 2013…"
What do you do when said multi-level marketing scheme gets you sued? Well, um, I guess Mike will soon need to figure that out.
This weekTeresa Giudiceand Joe Giudice finally faced the inevitable and pled guilty for their 41 counts of federal fraud charges. Teresa has expressed her shame for what this has done to her daughters and vowed not to speak publicly about the matter again. Until Barbara Walters or Oprah comes a'callin' I'm sure!
Faced with an insurmountable indictment, the Real Housewives of New Jerseystar is subject to a sentence of 21 – 27 months but Judge Esther Salas has the final say in just how long – if any – Teresa will serve in prison. Perhaps Joe may just be headed to the slammer solo! Teresa's attorney explained to People that Teresa has a strategy for convincing the Judge why she should be permitted to remain a free lady.
"Teresa's plan is to explain to the court both how she ended up in this mess to begin with as well as how she has made a life for herself and the girls that will see them through it," her lawyer Henry Klingeman revealed. "We have the right to ask for probation and we are going to."
I don't think a day goes by that I wonder if reality stars ever learn from their bad behavior. I realize they likely never will, but sometimes even I get surprised. Basketball Wives star Tami Roman may have just shocked me yet! The volatile bestie of Evelyn Lozada and Shaunie O'Neal seems to have learned some lessons after watching herself on the small screen. Too bad her friends have yet to follow suit!
The veteran reality star compares her time on MTV's Real World to the producer created (I'm looking at you, Nostrils!) drama, and cites that one genre (at least back in her day) was a lot more authentic than the other…you know, back when reality television was actually supposed to be real.
