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.

Ok, Bravoians – get ready for the new line-up! Bravo has officially released the list of upcoming shows and it includes eleven all-new reality shows and eight returning gems!  Among the most exciting news is that Real Housewife of Beverly Hills star Lisa Vanderpump has scored her own show about celebrity hotspot SUR and Real Housewives of Atlanta star Kandi Burrussspin-off The Kandi Factory has also been added to the permanent roster!

Here’s the list of what’s to come!

“Silicon Valley” Bravo captures the intertwining lives of young professionals on the path to becoming Silicon Valley’s next great success stories.

“Life After Top Chef” For the first time cameras are taken outside of the “Top Chef” kitchen and into the lives of Bravo’s most beloved former cheftestants as they reach milestones in their personal lives and culinary careers. From opening their own restaurants to expanding their growing franchises, viewers will follow Jen Carroll in Philadelphia, Richard Blais in Atlanta, Fabio Viviani in Los Angeles and Spike Mendelsohn in DC.

“Below Deck” The upstairs and downstairs worlds collide when this young and single crew of “yachties” live, love and work together onboard a luxurious mega yacht while tending to the ever-changing needs of their wealthy, demanding charter guests.

“Huh?” Ever wonder who is behind those hilarious cat memes? Bravo goes inside the office of Ben Huh and his eclectic staff at icanhascheezburger.com, one of the largest humor publishers on the Internet known for their popular LOLs and FAILs.

“Miss Advised” These single relationship experts can’t seem to practice what they preach as Amy Laurent in New York, Emily Morse in San Francisco and Julia Allison in Los Angeles struggle to stay afloat in the deep end of the dating pool.

“Newlyweds: The First Year”From the moment they say “I do” to their one-year anniversary, cameras capture diverse couples across the coasts experiencing the trials and tribulations of their first year of marriage.

“Gallery Girls” Viewers are introduced to seven young women who dream of living a chic and fashionable existence in New York City. All share a passion for art, but are divided amongst their Manhattan and Brooklyn lifestyles with vastly different attitudes and tastes towards fashion, art and men.

“LA Shrinks” It takes one to treat one! The professional and personal lives of dynamic experts are exposed as they counsel a wide array of clients at some of the top private practices in Los Angeles.

“Decades” Renowned boutique owners, Christos Garkinos and Cameron Silver, show off their exclusive and glamorous world of vintage couture filled with Givenchy, Balenciaga and Chanel.

The official preview trailer for all the new reality gems is below!

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.

I was very surprised not to see the Rachel Zoe Project on the list!

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.

Moving on, last night Andy Cohen hosted the Watch What Happens Live All-Star Party. Among the proceedings was the official unveiling of the three new Real Housewives of New York; which was pretty much reality television’s worst kept secret. Well, it’s official Carole Radziwill, Aviva Drescher, and Heather Thomson will be embarrassing themselves on our TVs very soon!

A preview of the upcoming explosive season was revealed and it appears that the rumors of Pinot Singer not 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 of Teresa 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…

THOUGHTS ON THE NEW SHOWS – WHAT WILL YOU BE WATCHING? ARE YOU EXCITED FOR KANDI AND LISA’S SPIN-OFFS? DID YOU WATCH THE ALL-STAR PARTY LAST NIGHT?

On last night’s episode of Real Housewives of Orange County the ladies got to mudslinging, only this time it involved actual mud for a change! In other news, Tamra Barney is officially divorced and Vicki Gunvalson is officially the most insecure fifty-year-old I’ve ever encountered. Oh, and Alexis Bellino revealed her new nose, which we’ve already seen 10,000 times before, so that was no big whoo-hoo.

Things start out with the Queen of the OC and resident class act, Heather Dubrow taking her husband shopping. Apparently, this is What Not To Wear, the Dr. Dubrow edition. Sadly, Stacy London and Clinton Kelly did not appear with a bevy of secret footage and a red trash can. Hopefully they’re saving that for Vicki, but I digress.

Terry does need a make-over and hopefully David Austin, world’s greatest clothier in all the world will help him – for a cool $50k. “You’re gonna look mmmaaaavalous!;” Heather purs; prying Terry’s wallet from his shaking hands with a malicious glint in her eye. Terry will no longer embarrass his perfect wife at cocktail parties with his outmoded and pedestrian appearance. Oh no – there is a new Terry in town and this one has both black and white tie attire!

I must admit – it’s nice to see some old-school traditional HW action of spending ostentatious amounts of money and actually being able afford it. We hope… . If they declare bankruptcy next year, we’ll know they’ve been struck by the Teresa Giudice curse!

While the ladies of Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills are deep into the pre-season casting charade they all do before contracts get signed, some very interesting news has leaked about former villain and now “laid-off” housewife Camille Grammer.

As said on the reunion, Camille has been very happily dating a younger man, Dimitri Charalambopoulos, who had yet to make it on-screen. A taped video deposition of Dimitri posted to Radar Online may give us a clue why he was so camera-shy. Like every other housewife boyfriend, Dimitri has baby mamma drama. In the following video, Dimitri is being deposed by his girlfriend Lisa Chynoweth‘s lawyers in Dallas. Lisa apparently wants to move her son to Colorado.

Last night was the premiere of the first Dance Moms‘ spin-off, Dance Moms: Miami.  We are introduced to Victor Smalley and Angel Armas, owners of Star Dance Studios in Miami, Florida.  I am curious to see if they will be as horrible as Abby Lee from the original Dance Moms, but from an overview of the upcoming season, they seem to be reserving the insanity for the moms.  Good call.

Victor and Angel are quick to point out that they would never put up with these crazy-a$$ mothers if it weren’t for their sweet and talented children.  Victor is the good cop to Angels’ stricter bravado.  Sammy Small and her mother Abby are new to the studio, but they aren’t new to Debi Epstein and her daughter Hannah.  Sammy and Hannah danced together when they were younger, and Sammy, who has grand plans to be the next Hannah Montana, apparently wasn’t the nicest to Hannah.  Abby thinks people are just jealous of her family’s wealth and talented children.  Perhaps, although Abby’s husband doesn’t seem to keen on spending on his “wealth” on his daughters’ dancing.

Victor’s mother, Mayra Smalley, runs the studio and is challenged with corralling the moms. Victor and Angel have a “list” where they rate the dancers’ performances, based on their own opinions, not how well they did in competition according to judges’ scores.  Debi is floored to see Hannah at the bottom.  An adorable Lucas Triana, is on the verge of tears when he’s told his cuteness will only get him so far, and ends up next to last on the list.  His mother Brigette, thinks her nine-year-old is winning multiple competitions should grant him a better place on the list.  Oh, and she also touts herself as the resident dance mom b!tch.  Good to know!

Kimmy Kopke is third on the list for her inability to memorize choreography, and new girl Sammy scores the second spot much to Debi’s eye-rolling and chagrin.  The coveted top spot belongs to Jessi Kennedy.  Her mother Susan is going to be a spitfire, mark my words.  The troupe prepares for an upcoming competition, and Victor gives them a pep talk.  Jessi scores a solo, and Lucas and Kimmy will have a duet where the young pair will be competing against twelve-year-old dancers.  Hannah is saddened to learn that she will not have a solo this week.

The routine for the competition is “jazz funk.”  Bring it!  The moms are kicked out of the studio while Victor teaches dark “Miami-fusion” style choreography to the students.  In the moms’ holding room, newbie mom Abby asks for the lowdown on Victor and Angel.  Both Brigette and Kimmy’s mother Anicia Guttierrez can’t hide their smugness.  Debi jumps in to talk about how strict this studio is compared to the one Sammy used to attend.  Abby agrees that it must be, as Hannah seems to be dancing a bit better than the last time Abby saw her.  Mee and yow.  Brigette finds it hilarious as Abby and Debi rattle off their daughters’ impressive dance resumes.

Debi admits that she is far more competitive than her daughter.  She cannot wait until Hannah is a superstar and shows up Sammy.  Does Debi realize she’s jealous of a tween?  Debi blames Victor for not giving Hannah a solo or a duet.  Victor divas up to Debi after she accuses him of casting Sammy when she hasn’t paid her dues at the studio.  He sashays away leaving Debi fuming.  I already like this show so much better than the original!  When Susan questions Debi about the altercation, she curtly replies she doesn’t want to talk about it.

We learn that Jessi is uber-competitive and wants to win at all costs.  We also learn that Jessi’s grandmother was a ballerina in Colombia.  A bit more history?  Her mother Susan didn’t quite make it as far in the dance world as she would have liked.  Shocking…her mother’s a famous dancer, and now her daughter lives to dance, admittedly to please Susan.  Lifetime, you also may have a movie of the week with this one.

Slade Smiley continues to believe that ex-girlfriend Michelle Arroyo is behind the red carpet attack he was subjected to last week over unpaid child support for son Grayson. And he blames this whole child support debacle on a certain co-star of his girlfriend!

Slade is furious that despite court documents and mugshots, people are making things up about his child support issues and he blames the show! “There are serious repercussions [for] the individuals who say things in the show,” Slade fumed to The Huffington Post. “People accuse me of not paying child support for my cancer-stricken son … This year, the women that said that apologized for it, but the damage has been done and it can be a very difficult space to navigate.” I’m assuming he’s talking about Tamra Barney exposing his child support dilemmas on air.

Gretchen Rossi is sympathetic to Slade’s plight, being the brunt of Tamra’s attacks herself. “Obviously, when Tamra accused me of cheating on my dying fiancé, that was harsh.”

Here is just the very thing; if Slade doesn’t want people talking about him, and knowing all his business, and making accusations against him then perhaps he should leave reality TV. Oh, what am I saying…

And hilariously, Slade insists that he doesn’t consider himself or Gretchen celebs! That’s a sentiment of his I completely agree with. “We don’t like to think that we are celebrities, because it is very fleeting,” he explained earlier of appearing on Real Housewives of Orange County with Gretchen. “But it does allow us to expose some of the business ventures that have come of this.”

“If you are the star of the show, you are probably a hot mess,” Gretchen added. “Think about it! They are flipping tables and pulling wigs.” Or, not paying child support, or getting arrested, or being the subject of lawsuits and restraining orders, and refusing to stay out of the public eye even though their life is a disaster…

THOUGHTS ON SLADE’S STATEMENT THAT TAMRA’S ON-AIR COMMENTS CAUSED HIS CHILD SUPPORT WOES TO BE MADE PUBLIC? SHOULD SLADE LEAVE REALITY TELEVISION?

The divorce saga of Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries rages on.

In today’s news on the shortest reality marriage of last year, Kris is turning down big money ($7 million!) in an attempt to force the Kartrashians to admit the whole thing was a sham. A friend of Kris’ spilled to the NY Post that “Kris wants Kim to admit to fraud, to admit the whole thing was staged for publicity, to make a public apology to him because he really wanted a marriage.”

Kris is not going to let them get away with making him look like the bad guy: “They are trying to spin Kim as the victim, but Kris isn’t going to stand for it.”

Kris’ team is still pushing hard to force the divorce proceedings be recorded on camera so that the truth comes out once and for all. But the Kardashian camp is fighting this tooth and nail. So ironic that something “real” happens and they don’t want it filmed.

Khloe Kardashian seems to be faring much better in the marriage department than her sister. Khloe and Lamar Odom are said to be working on their issues.

Last night’s 16 and Pregnant introduced us to Briana DeJesus, a Brooklyn teen who now resides with her mother and older sister in Orlando, Florida.  She graduated a year early from high school and is looking forward to starting college in the fall.  She and her former boyfriend, Devoin, decided to keep the baby, although the couple soon ended their relationship.  Even harder?  Her sister Brittany got pregnant at the same time and decided to have an abortion.  Briana reveals to her friend that they pair didn’t use protection, because it was too awkward to talk about – you know what else is awkward…having everyone up in your business for nine months.  Teens say the darndest things.

Both sisters seem almost envious of the others’ choice.  Briana has no support from her baby’s father, but she feels like she is flaunting her pregnancy in front of her sister.  Brittany claims she chose abortion after seeing how hard it was for her sister, and she promises to go out and have fun while Briana is stuck home with her baby.  However, Brittany can’t change the choice she made, and she admits that it is hard for her to watch Briana’s pregnancy progress.  Mother and daughters share a tearful moment.

Devoin hasn’t spoken to Briana in over a month, but she still holds out hope that he will be there for their daughter.  Her mom agrees to allow him to spend the night a few times a week to help, but she has no intentions of turning into his personal hotel.  Seeing as Devoin won’t return Briana’s calls or texts, she may not have anything to worry about.  She discusses baby names with her mother, who quickly rules out Bliss, as it sounds too much like a stripper name.  Briana is leaning towards the name Nova.

Briana, Brittany, and their friends have a fun time making t-shirts, with Briana decorating hers with stars and the word Nova.  She texts Devoin about naming the baby.  Briana has made up her mind about Nova, and Devoin thinks he should at least get a vote.  She says she will let him choose the last name…but if Devoin wants Nova to have his last name, he’s really going to have to step up to the plate.  Devoin is not keen on getting a job to assist with the baby.  He feels like he’s being forced into finding work.  Doesn’t Briana know how stressed out he is?  Devoin is very indifferent to his ex-girlfriend’s tears.  D-to-the-ouchebag!
