We’re still bringing you the weekly photo roundup in a short bit, but first wanted to put up some shots from last night. The stars of Bravo gathered in NYC for the Bravo All-Star Party special edition of Watch What Happens Live. A slew of the celebs were spotted leaving their hotels on their way over to the event, so we wanted to share!
Teresa Giudice finally gave Donald Trump the sparks he was asking for when she got into it with Debbie Gibson on last Sunday’s Celebrity Apprentice. She even decided to insult Debbie’s choice of wardrobe for the occasion like there was some kind of dress code. In an interview with Zap2It, Debbie insists she was happy to be done with the show: “Once the potshots started, I was glad [to leave]. I can take constructive and professional criticism.”
Wait, so “your tits are hanging out” isn’t professional criticism? That explains a lot. What’s even more interesting is Debbie’s revelation that, post show, she found out she had actually fund-raised more money for the guidebook challenge than chopping block-mate Dayana Mendoza. That makes the inclusion of Aubrey O’Day, who raised less money than both of them, even more suspect. But we all know Dayana’s money is worth more to Donald because it came from Dayana’s model friends. If there’s one thing that man likes, it’s to look at, and discuss tall, thin women. It’s not hard to do the math here.
But, in Dayana’s defense, Debbie has this to say: “I don’t think she was the hardest worker or the most creative, but she certainly wasn’t a problem. They were calling her distracting, and I thought it was all a bit contrived.”
Does Debbie’s former ally Lisa Lampanelli know that Debbie was quoted saying something positive about Lisa’s Venezuelan nemesis? Is Debbie a new target for Lisa’s humor?
In another interview on Debbie’s post-firing tour, she tells The Deadbolt that she still doesn’t understand why Teresa was so angry with her in the boardroom. “Teresa never delegated anything to do with the visuals for the kiosk for where we were selling the book. She never delegated it. It wasn’t my job to wonder who she delegated that to.” I felt the same way when watching the episode. When Debbie brought up the kiosk to Teresa in the war room, Teresa looked at Debbie like she had four heads. The kiosk was kinda essential to their task and should have been a priority.
In response, Teresa blames the editing and says, “I’m the one who actually thought about that at some point later in the day and that translated to I was setting her up. If I was setting her up, I wouldn’t have brought it up at all and we would’ve shown up and had an undecorated kiosk.” Actually, if they’d had a bad kiosk, Trump would have taken that as poor management, not the under-handed strategy Teresa thinks. She would have been fired.
In the end, Debbie thinks she was let go for the very original reason of “jealousy.”I don’t really get it. I just think she wanted me gone. Maybe she was threatened at that point because I was a strong player. I don’t really know what her deal was.”
In other Teresa news, Real Housewives of New Jersey’s fourth season is just around the corner! So, it’s time for the ladies to do their media blitz. While watching the preview, it’s clear that Teresa will continue to be the odd man out, a complete turn around from the beginning of the series. In an interview with Star, Teresa shares how the show has destroyed her relationship with Jacqueline Laurita and Caroline Manzo.
“Jacqueline and I had a wonderful relationship for about 10 years. We were great friends, but not anymore. It’s so sad. We actually went through a ‘friends divorce,’ which is so hard. Then, Jacqueline basically attacked me on the show about a magazine article that said I was going to jail. She was upset that she hadn’t heard it directly from me, but I wasn’t going to jail … the whole thing was so ridiculous.”
She says both Jaq and Caroline “take everything that is small, and turn it into something serious.” Like an innocent joke in a cookbook. Loosen up Manzo-Lauritas!
Teresa also has choice words for her sister-in-law Melissa Gorga, saying “I felt deceived.” It’s not hard to see why, when it’s clear that Melissa was cast to not only bring the real tension they’d been experiencing for years onto the show, but also to create more drama. That Christening episode last season is still one of the most disturbing things I’ve ever seen on television. And as you all know, I recap Bad Girls Club! But the issues between the Gorgas and Giudices are so deep and so ugly, and I can understand why Teresa would be upset.
Sadly, she reveals she’s estranged from her brother Joe. “I haven’t spoken to my brother since before Christmas. We haven’t gone this long without talking in my whole life! I’d have to say that reality TV ruined our family, and it’s a disgrace.”
DO YOU THINK DEBBIE WAS FIRED UNFAIRLY FROM CELEBRITY APPRENTICE? DO YOU THINK REALITY TELEVISION RUINED TERESA’S FAMILY?
The strange case of Camille Grammer‘s threats towards boyfriend Dimitri Charalambopoulos‘ ex-girlfriend, Lisa Chynoweth, continues to get stranger and stranger. Today, more information surfaces about why Camille was allegedly recorded without her permission, making threatening comments towards Lisa.
In response to the shocking YouTube video that surfaced of Dimitri being deposed by his ex-girlfriend’s lawyers, he has sought a temporary restraining order!
RadarOnline reports that the restraining order was obtained in Dallas, Texas and states: “the court examined the pleadings and affidavit of Dimitri Charalambopoulos, and finds that Dimitri Charalambopoulos is entitled to a temporary restraining order restraining Lisa Chynoweth from releasing any deposition transcripts or videos regarding this case to anyone, directly or indirectly, for any reason…”
According to RumorFix, Dimitri is also petitioning the court for a gag order against Lisa to prevent her from further disparaging his reputation! “Necessity of gag order, sealing file, closing courtroom and confidentiality order,” the petition requests
“Dimitri loves his son and will hold Lisa responsible in court for her actions,” a source explains to Radar.
Unfortunately, the video has already hit the net, and it also featured a recorded phone call of Camille telling Lisa: “If you go to the press, I have lawyers that are beyond what you can imagine and they will pull stuff on you and you will be so mortified about your life and your family and what you have done. You don’t want to do that to Marcus.”
Many have wondered just why Camille would go psycho-bitch on the woman over a custody dispute, and as always, there is more than meets the eye about the situation. A source is coming forward defending Camille and allegedly exposing Lisa’s actions as a set-up to make Camille look bad and potentially extort her.
Allegedly, it was Lisa who contacted Camille first. “Lisa is the one that called Camille about a month and a half ago and she had a laundry list of issues she needed to address. Camille was very gracious in the beginning of the conversation and just let Lisa talk. Camille had a lot going on in her life because she was still in a custody dispute with Kelsey [Grammer],” the source–who is reportedly close to the situation–describes.
“Towards the end of the conversation, Lisa told Camille that the press had been calling her and brought up Camille’s children. Lisa knew about the custody battle and threatened to insert herself into that situation. Camille was provoked and reacted as any mother that loves her children would, period. Camille didn’t threaten Dimitri’s son, Marcus, she was simply saying that no child should have to deal with the fallout of their parents feuding.”
People are always trying to goad Camille into an awful situation, aren’t they? First Taylor Armstrong, and now this Lisa person!
The source adds that Dimitri is totally supportive of Camille’s version of events, and that the couple has never been happier. “Dimitri and Camille have never been closer and more in love. Camille has handled herself with true class and Dimitri is so grateful to have her in his life.”
“Neither one of them thought they were ever going to find true love again and be able to trust someone with their heart. They are a fantastic couple and are rock solid.”
The source also adds that despite Lisa’s accusations against Dimitri and Camille, he is a loving and devoted father. “Dimitri won’t trash her [Lisa] in the press though as she has threatened to do to him. He is a gentleman and will handle this with class. He is so grateful to have Camille in his life.”
THOUGHTS ON THE NEWEST INFORMATION ABOUT CAMILLE’S THREATENING PHONE CALL? WAS CAMILLE GOADED INTO MAKING THE COMMENTS?
Oh, the day is never complete without some Kardashian Kraziness! And today refuses to disappoint, ya’ll!
Star is reporting this week that Kris Humphries is ready to tell the world that his beloved Kimmy was not faithful. He allegedly has proof that Kim was fooling around while they were engaged. Anyone want to start the guesses on who it was?
“Kris is ready to blow the lid off all of Kim’s lies and reveal who she really is. This could be a huge blow to her reputation. It would be a good idea for her to just write him a big, fat check to keep quiet.”
Kris wants to prove to the court that the whole marriage was a sham so that the prenup will be deemed invalid. Interesting. I wonder when he found out this cheating news – before or after the big fundraiser wedding.
I’m not so sure I believe this one since Kim reportedly TRIED to write him a big fat check to keep quiet. A SEVEN million dollar check.
In other Kris Humph news that will blow your mind – or your shatter your funny bone, depending on which way you look at this….
Kris posed for a series of “sexy” photos, and Hollywood Life got a hold of an exclusive shot. See it here. And then come right back to share your reaction!
Kris wants to make sure we know he didn’t shoot these for revenge on Kim. His rep says that isn’t the case: “The allegations that he’s seeking revenge with this photo shoot are false and we remain adamant that personal issues will be handled by his legal team and not in the media.”
Remember the good ole days when everyone thought Khloe Kardashian’s marriage toLamar Odom was a fake and/or wouldn’t last because of how fast it all went down? Well, it looks they’re the couple who are going to make an honest effort and have the last laugh. Khloe is reportedly ready to give up ‘Khloe & Lamar’ to make her marriage work.
A source says that Khloe realized how stressful filming the show has been for Lamar amid his big career change and the negative affect it’s having on his game playing and their relationship.
“Khloe is fighting to save her marriage. She realizes the toll reality TV and being in the public eye has taken on her relationship with Lamar. Khloe wants to make Lamar and starting a family her number one priority right now!”
I think if anyone in the Kardashian/Jenner clan would give up the reality show biz for a more normal life, it’d be Khloe.
Last night’s Survivor was a tad boring, if I do say so myself. I can’t keep up with legitimate, semi-legitmate, and totally false alliances. Who knew I’d be wishing Colton Cumbiewas around to liven up this purely strategic mess? I take that back…I’m glad he’s gone, but the remainder of this season is going to drag. I usually have someone I am rooting for by this point, but…
The merged Tikiano is back at the beach after tribal council. Troyzan and Model Jay are sad to see Jonas go. Troyzan knows that the men’s former alliance has been upset by some of the guys’ loyalty to the Salani. After a discussion with Jay, the two men seem to be back to the boys versus girls mentality. The pair finds a message in a 7 Up bottle as tree-mail. From the cryptic letter, it seems the winner of the reward challenge will get their fill of the un-cola. #productplacement
The reward challenge involves each member on the chosen tribes to go down a super steep water slide and then head into the ocean to retrieve boxes that will ultimately be connected as a puzzle. The winning tribe will be whisked to a 7 Up oasis…only Jeff Probstcould make that sound so sexy. The winners will partake in barbecue, burgers, key lime pie, and, of course, all the 7 Up they can drink. To whet the teams pallets, each player is given a taste of the citrus beverage. It’s “school-yard pick” as to who is on which team. The first group is Jay Byars, Kat Edorsson, Troyzan, Alicia Rosa, and Chelsea Meissner versus everyone else…except Tarzan. He wasn’t picked.
In what seemed like the briefest rehab stint in recorded history,The Situation checked out of the swanky Cirque Lodge treatment center in Utah yesterday!
TMZ reports that The Situation was seeking help to “get control of a prescription medication problem” he had “due to exhaustion,” and entered the facility on March 20th where he spent a mere 14-days!
Upon getting out of rehab, the Jersey Shore star was spotted at nearby airport looking ecstatic and even took a photo with a fan before boarding his flight. The photo is below!
Mike is due to begin filming the 300th season of Jersey Shore very soon! Which is worrisome, as reality television and healthy behavior do not seem like a good mix! No word on Mike’s post-rehab plans just yet!
UPDATE: The Situation took to his Facebook Page to let fans know he’s “back stronger and better than ever!”
“The Situation is home!! I just want to thank everyone for their support and words of encouragement,” he added. So when is he getting treatment for referring to himself in the third person?
THOUGHTS – WAS MIKE’S REHAB STAY LONG ENOUGH? SHOULD HE RETURN TO REALITY TV?

Oh good gracious! Just when you think you’ve heard it all, one of the Basketball “Wives” gets accused of something even more random and off-the-wall than the last one! Case in point? Everyone’s favorite cuckoo for Coco-Puffs, Kenya Bell!
As you know, she in in the process of divorcing her husband, Charlie Bell, a former NBA star who now plays basketball in Italy. Apparently, Mr. Bell is tired of his wife claiming that he leads an extravagant lifestyle while she struggles to provide for the couple’s children. He is firing back, alleging that it’s Kenya, not him, who is completely careless with cash. TMZ is reporting that Charlie recently filed documents which cite her spending habits. They are as follows:
–$82,000 on a Corvette, which she drove for 3 weeks — then resold it for $61,000
– $12,000 on a motorcycle
– $20,000 on criminal attorneys
– $150,000 on “miscellaneous expenses to get even with Mr. Bell”
– $3,000 on her brother’s electric bill
– $9,000 on luggage and shoes
– and $110,000 on plastic surgeries and expenses in L.A. for the plastic surgery trips
That is a heck of a lot of plastic surgery, my friends! It seems Kenya on her own is giving the entire cast of RHOC a run for their botoxed and bosomy money! Charlie reportedly gave his estranged wife $200,000 before leaving for Italy, and he is asking the court to deny her petition for more support. Of course, divorce is expensive.
Also expensive? Weddings! But hopefully some of the costs can be tempered by a paycheck and sponsors if you’re willing to have the whole planning process and event filmed for a reality show. I’m talking to you, Ev and Ocho! Evelyn Lozada and Chad Ochocinco recently spoke with Sister2Sister about their bond, potentially outrageous wedding day details, and those pesky rumors of an open relationship.
Evelyn wants to get that gossip out of the way stat. She begins, “We don’t have an open relationship. What I was saying in that conversation is that until you live my lifestyle in my circle you don’t really understand what goes on. I’m going to honor my marriage ‘til death, but who’s to say what’s going to happen 20 years from now? I don’t know that. There are so many things thrown at the both of us.”
“How do I know? I’m human,” she continues. “How do I know one day I’m not going to f_ck up? I’m not perfect, and we live this lifestyle and things get thrown at you all the time, and I’m not going into the marriage thinking we’re just going to be perfect. That was the whole point of that.”
Well that answers that! Ev and Ocho just so happen to enjoy uncomfortable deep talks. I can appreciate that.
“We always have controversial conversations like that, and real, and I think that people were taken aback, but that’s how me and my dude talk,” Evelyn admits. “That’s how we have conversations. It’s real. We have these types of discussions and they’re very controversial.”
She also touches on a non-traditional approach to the ceremony the couple is considering. Chad, it seems, wants to be the one who walks down the aisle while Evelyn waits at the altar. I wonder what the protocol is for that…does the congregation still stand?
Evelyn reveals, “I’ve honestly been giving it some thought.” She states, “I don’t want my wedding to be your typical wedding. At the same time, that’s really not something I’m willing to give up. I think he’s a big personality, and I feel like Chad wants—we all want —our moment.”
She’s willing to compromise, saying, “I’m having my wedding planner figure out something for him, so he can have his entrance and his moment.”
Chad explains himself, telling the site, “I do everything odd. I think it’d be refreshing to do something different to have her wait at the altar for me ‘cause everyone else’s marriage failed doing it the traditional way.” The man makes a valid point. Of course, this is the same man hopes for penguins and lions to be a part of the ceremony.

And now for the list of returning shows. I was surprised to see Chef Roblé & Co and Pregnant in Heels (although I kinda liked that show) coming back. Also returning is Flipping Out, Tabatha Takes Over, Top Chef (including Last Chance Kitchen), Top Chef Masters Million Dollar Listing, Million Dollar Decorators, and Inside The Actors Studio – which will feature the cast of Mad Men.
And branching out, Bravo also announced the arrival of two scripted shows! “22 Birthdays” focuses on the sordid and scandalous activities of a group of parents at an exclusive private school, with each episode centered around an extravagant and lavish birthday party. And “Blowing Sunshine” is set at a fictional private rehabilitation center and follows its staff and high profile patients.
A preview of the upcoming explosive season was revealed and it appears that the rumors of Pinot Singernot getting along with any of her fellow Housewives are confirmed! She goes to battle with everyone and may soon find herself on the Jill Zarin side of things if she keeps this up! The new ladies were shown banding together in an act of solidarity against “mean girl” behavior.
Among last night’s surprising events was the conspicuous absence ofTeresa Giudice! The entire Real Housewives of New Jersey cast was spotted together on the red carpet and participated in the Housewives East vs. West Battle Royale, but there was no Teresa in sight! It is well established that Teresa is not speaking to any of her castmates and rumors have been swirling that she’s headed for a spin-off following the explosive fourth season, airing later this month!
Also interesting was that Lisa did not sit with her fellow RHOBH castmates and instead took the stage solo for a sit-down with Andy. She also skipped the Housewives battle. Perhaps confirming the casting gossip that Taylor Armstrong and Kim Richards are returning next season was their attendance. Oddly,Brandi Glanville was not in the audience!
Finally, the most troubling events of last night were the musical performances of Melissa Gorga and LuAnn de Lesseps. Now I love you both, but please believe – you cannot sing! Step away from the microphones…
