Allison seems to be taking a page from the book of her good palCamille Grammeras she also blames editing for her portrayal. Below is what Allison posted on her website -
“I aired in an episode of HW of BH that was to say the least, in my opinion, recklessly edited and was not representative of what actually happened that night nor who I am. I was there only as support for my friend Camille who had told me how painful her interaction with the other housewives was and it was making her physically ill. I’m very protective of my friends/family and was there to support my friend.”
Right, surely Bravo edited the electronic cigarette into her mouth as well as the awful things she said about people’s children going missing. Also interesting that the medium/psychic couldn’t foresee how this would all turnout for her.
Also speaking out is Camille’s other BFF/employee DD aka Dedra Whitt. It seems Camille deleted her last blog from the Bravo website (the dinner from hell blog) causing some fans of the show to question DD about it on her twitter.
“Just talked to her. she was tired of the abusive comments so she stopped,” tweeted DD replying to a fan who wanted to know why Camille hadn’t blogged in weeks. Another fan asked if Camille was upset about her portrayal on the show, DD replied, “I think she is upset about many things going on in her life!”
And finally, ever since Camille spilled the beans that her estranged husband Kelsey Grammer was planning to marry his fiance Kayte Walshin January without a prenup, many have been wondering why the rush? As Kelsey and Camille have only been officially separated for six months.
Kelsey responded this week stating that he and Kayte are simply in love and see no reason to postpone their wedding or happiness. However, a recent report by the NY Post speculates he’s in a rush to marry Kayte because she needs a visa to stay in the US. See Kayte is British and works as a flight attendant. Sources close to Kelsey however deny this is the reason. If it was, it would explain the rush no?

UPDATE – As some of our brilliant readers have pointed out in the comments, Camille did indeed state during the dinner from hell episode that she did not inform Allison of her previous fights/arguments with Kyle, which contradicts what Allison is stating above.
The Bethenny Getting Married star was photographed in Los Angeles as she did a poolside photo shoot for a Canadian magazine. “You shouldn’t dread working out,” Bethenny, 40, told Redbook in a recent interview.
‘Exercise is like an old friend: You may not be able to see that friend all the time, but you’re not mad when you see them, you’re happy, and you get right back into it,” she added. More bikini photos of Bethenny below.
Moving right along to Phaedra Parks. The Real Housewives of Atlanta star recently showed off her home to Wetpaint in a new photo shoot. Phaedra reveals she has owned the five bedroom and five bathroom Atlanta estate for nine years. “My interior design is transitional,” she says. “My [home's] interior blends traditional and contemporary characteristics that are unified by color and design choices.”
Phaedra reveals she spends most of her time in her kitchen and master suite. “I am definitely a self-proclaimed Southern belle, as you can tell from my home,” says Phaedra, adding that she did not use a designer though she did consult with one. Phaedra also reveals her love for wallpaper, which is rather obvious from looking at her home photos.

Following months of speculation, UsWeekly is now confirming Khloe Kardashian and hubby Lamar Odom are indeed getting their own spinoff show!
The show will reportedly be a newlyweds-type reality show similar to Bravo’s Bethenny Getting Married. “It shoots in the spring,” says an insider. “They’re so cute, playing off one another.”
UsWeekly also adds that another Keeping Up With The Kardashians spinoff, Kourtney & Kim Take New York, set to debut on E! January 23, will be missing a major cast member.
While it has been reported that Scott Disick axed the idea of having his son Mason on the show so that he can have a “normal” life, a source tells the mag the real issue was money as Scott demanded $5,000 an episode for his son. “E! offered $1,000, but he played hardball. E! was like, ‘Are you out of your mind?’”
Another source adds, “He bungled negotiations, so you won’t see Mason at all!”
And finally, Kim Kardashian stepped out yesterday debuting a completely different hairstyle as she had her hair braided up in cornrows. It however seems the new hairstyle is for the music video she is currently shooting with Kanye West for her upcoming single.
“Day #3 Night shoot! I’m fighting hair and make up….this look is a little cray cray, but I’m going for it!” she tweeted yesterday. More photos of Kimmy’s new hairstyle below -

Just in case you haven’t been keeping tracking of this divorce drama between the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills stars, TMZ reported this week that Camille will be getting $50 million in her divorce settlement from Kelsey.
“Kelsey is deeply in love with Kayte and can’t imagine spending the rest of his life with any other woman in the world. He knows she’s the one and wouldn’t insult her by asking her to sign a pre-nup even though his third divorce is going to cost him about $50 million,” a friend of Kelsey’s reveals.
Camille revealed earlier this month that Kelsey is planning to marry Kayte in January. The source adds, “Kelsey doesn’t care about the money. He never has. This is about being happy. Finding someone who is your best friend,” a friend tells me. “He doesn’t want to wait any longer.” Wowzers.
In other news, the NY Post is reporting today that Camille was originally supposed to receive $30 million from her divorce settlement but ultimately demanded $20 mil more and got it! “Because there is no prenup, Camille was certain she’d get up to $50 million, because she’s a partner in his TV company and entitled to half the money he made from shows, including ‘Frasier,’ while they were married,” says a source who adds that another reason Camille rejected the offer was because it didn’t include alimony or child support.
“She has accepted their marriage is over and that he wants to marry Kayte in January. Camille wants it all over, too. But what she can’t accept is how he’s parading around Kayte, who looks like the cat who swallowed the canary. Their public make-out sessions are really insensitive because of their kids,” adds the source. Let’s hope openly flirting with other people’s husbands on national television doesn’t count as being insensitive to the kids as well.
And there will be no new episode of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills tonight. It is scheduled to return next week with a new episode.

The first is a new shocking TMZ story today stating that the Teen Mom might have hit her ex-fiance Gary Shirleyagain in an attack just a mere 2 weeks ago.
TMZ obtained an audio recording of Gary talking to his new girlfriend named Ashley. In the recording, Gary can be heard pleading desperately with Ashley to not utter a word to reporters who apparently got a hold of the Dec. 14 incident where Amber allegedly beat him again.
During the call, Gary can be heard admitting Amber “f**king hit me.” He then goes on to plead with Ashley to tell reporters, “No comment, no comment, no comment …” adding, “every time they leave you alone.”
Very shocking if Amber did indeed attack Gary again just two weeks ago as she was charged with domestic violence a month ago though she wasn’t officially arrest until this week. Yikes.
In other Amber news, she was released on Tuesday afternoon after posting bail. And despite a report that came out this week stating that Amber was issued a “no contact” order with her 2-year-old daughter Leah, UsWeekly is now reporting that report is false. The mag adds that the no contact order only applied to Gary.
Things could get complicated as Gary is reported to be taking care of Leah following Amber’s arrest. TMZ also adds that Gary has contacted the court to try to get the no contact order lifted. A court hearing for Amber has been set for January 19 to determine what should happen to Leah.
And finally, UsWeekly adds that when Amber appeared before Madison County magistrate Steven Clase on Tuesday, she was forced to reveal her income, which ended up being a whopping $140,000 for a six-month contract with MTV! The above picture of Amber was taken yesterday as she was seen exiting a counseling facility near her home in Indiana.
It seems Kim Kardashian, 30, continues to follow in the foot steps on her former BFF Paris Hilton. First came the sex tape, the reality show, that whole being famous for being famous thingy, and now an attempt to legitimize that fame by attempting to sing.
Yes, Kim Kardashian is indeed recording a music album. In fact, TMZ is reporting that the Keeping Up With The Kardashians star teamed up with rapper Kanye West and acclaimed video producer Hype Williams to shoot a music video yesterday for her upcoming single.
According to sources, Hype spent hours working with Kim and Kanye during the secret closed set shoot.
And no, Kim has yet to release any single or any song for that matter, so we have no idea how she sounds. TMZ also confirms Kimmy is taking this music thingy very serious as she is working on her entire studio album with famed producer The Dream.

Jersey Shore star Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi will have to look for another way to ring in the New Year now that she has been banned from the Times Square area on Dec. 31.
According to the NY Post, MTV concocted a plan to drop Snooki in a hamster- toy-like ball in Times Square Friday night. MTV however found themselves in trouble once the Times Square officials found out what the network was planning. The officials told MTV it didn’t have permission to do a Snooki ball drop from the roof of its studios.
“The request to have her in a separate ball on a setback roof came too late and was too impractical to fit into our outdoor events,” a spokesman for the event organizers said yesterday.
Meanwhile, an insider tells Popeater, “At midnight, the crowd and the media will be watching Mayor Bloomberg, Dick Clark and the official ball drop, not a cast member of the ‘Jersey Shore.’” Ouch.
TMZ is also reporting that the Snooki ball drop will still be happening, but instead in Jersey Shore. The ball, pictured below, has a giant lit Snooki sign on it.
Oh yeah, the new season of the Jersey Shore premieres Thursday, January 6, 2011 at 10/9c on MTV.
