It was only a matter of time. TMZ is now reporting that Teen Mom star Amber Portwood was arrested today on domestic violence charges and is currently in jail.
If you recall, Amber was charged with two felony counts and one misdemeanor for domestic violence and battery back in mid November. According to TMZ, the arrest warrant was officially issued today by her local police department for those charges.
According to the cops, the charges stem from Amber attacking ex-fiance Gary Shirleyon three separate occasions between August 2009 and July 2010. Some of the violence was captured on video and shown on the MTV hit show Teen Mom.
Amber was reportedly booked at 4:21 PM EST and has been placed on a “24-hour hold.” Her bail has been at $5,000. Amber faces three years in jail and up to $10,000 in fines if convicted on all charges.
It is also likely that Gary will be awarded temporary custody of their daughter Leah due to this arrest.

According to TMZ, Kelsey has formally asked a judge to grant the divorce decree asap! The legal process is apparently called “bifurcation.” Kelsey is requesting his divorce be rushed and for the money issues aka division of assets to be dealt with later.
Under California law, divorces can become final 6 months after the petition is filed. Since Camille filed on July 1, 2010, Kelsey will be free to marry his mistress fiance Kayte Walshon Saturday, January 1, that is if the judge grants his request for the bifurcation.
So how does Camille, star of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, feel about this? A friend of Camille’s tells TMZ she “is not surprised but continues to be disappointed at Kelsey’s immature and disrespectful behavior.”
In other BH news, TMZ is also reporting that Lisa Vanderpump was involved in an attack on Christmas eve. It all started when Lisa, her husband Ken Todd, Los Angeles news reporter Robert Kovacik and some others were having dinner at the Beverly Hills Polo Lounge when a drunk man walked up to her table and began berating her.
Reporter Robert then stood up and asked the man to stop, which led to the man punching Robert and shoving Lisa’s husband Ken to the floor. Robert reportedly received two dozen stitches for his busted lip from Dr. Paul Nassif, who also stars on the RHOBH. TMZ adds that Robert has since filed criminal charges against his assailant.
No word yet on if Giggy’s innocent eyes were forced to witness the attack. And finally, Kyle Richards, along with her family, spent the Christmas holiday visiting Aspen. Even more interesting, it seems Kyle is still BFFs with Faye Resnick despite the strong protest from her frenemy costar/morality police Camille. Kyle and Faye were photographed yesterday shopping in Aspen. Those photos are below -

TMZ is now reporting that Bristol just purchased a home in Arizona for $172,000! And get this, she paid in cash! The 3,900 square foot home, which has 5 bedrooms, 2.5 baths, and a 3 car garage, is located in Maricopa, AZ.
It seems Bristol got a great deal on the home as the Huffington Post reports the home was built in 2006 and was bought for a little under $330,000 at the time.
So why purchase a house in Arizona? Well, according to TMZ, Bristol is telling friends she wants to attend Arizona State University, which is just miles away from her home.
The HollywoodLife however has a different take on Bristol’s purchase as the site’s reporting Bristol’s move to Arizona is also so she can be closer to her new boyfriend and fellow Alaskan Giancinto “Gino” Paoletti. Gino is described as a 20-year-old pipeline worker who splits his time between Alaska and Arizona. Gino reportedly also dabbles in real estate and helped Bristol find her new Arizona home, which is not too far from his.
A photo of Gino is below as well as photos of Bristol’s new home -

As you all may know by now, the Northeast region is experiencing a pretty harsh blizzard with many government officials warning citizens to stay off the roads. It seems Kelly did not receive these warnings as she tweeted the following Monday morning – “During the blizzard, we spun out in my Mercedes on the LIE. I was petrified. It was like skating not driving. I need a #safe car.”
While “safe cars” are nice to have, we also believe a functioning brain and the ability to know to stay home during dangerous blizzards would also suffice. Kelly then added that the blizzard started during her drive home. “Most dangerous times to drive are when it starts to snow/ rain. We were driving home as the blizzard started.did a 360. so scarey.” Right.
Moving right along to Kelly’s former costar Bethenny Frankel. Apparently Bethenny lost some weight during her stint on the Skating With The Stars disaster as she is now looking to pack on some pounds.
“Eating enchiladas at “on the border”mex grill at 10am.need to gain weight.I look like magda from “something about mary,” tweeted Bethenny. Looks like Bethenny will have to go against her famous trademark – “Taste everything, eat nothing” for the time being.
It also seems Bethenny will continue to expand her ever growing empire. “I’m developing a healthy cleanse&purification daily system for you.JAN!” tweeted Bethenny when a fan asked about her thoughts on a good 3 day cleanse.
Playboy magazine founder Hugh Hefner had a jolly ol Christmas this year by becoming engaged to his Playmate girlfriend Crystal Harris!
Hugh, 84, took to his twitter page over the weekend to announce his engagement to the E! network’s Girls Next Doorstar. Crystal is only 24-years-old (despite looking like she could easily pass for her mid-thirties) and 60 years Hugh’s junior.
“After the movie tonight, Crystal & I exchanged gifts. I gave Crystal a ring. A truly memorable Christmas Eve,” Hugh tweeted. “When I gave Crystal the ring, she burst into tears. This is the happiest Christmas weekend in memory.”
To further clarify things, Hugh added, “Yes, the ring I gave Crystal is an engagement ring. I didn’t mean to make a mystery out of it. A very merry Christmas to all.”
This will make the third marriage for Hugh. In 2009, he filed for divorce from his second wife, former Playmate Kimberly Conrad, after the two separated in 1998 (they have two sons together – Marston, 20, and Cooper, 19). Hugh was also previously married to Mildred Williams; their marriage ended in divorce in 1959. Hugh and Mildred have two grown children – Christie, 58, and David, 55.
Here’s to hoping former Playmate and Girls Next Door star Holly Madison, 31, who dated Hugh for 7 years and publicly stated on numerous occasions that she hoped to marry him and have his babies, only to have to end the relationship because Hugh told her he never wanted to get married or have children again, is being kept away from all sharp objects on this beautiful Monday morning.

Following last week’s insane episode of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, there was no really no way for the show to top itself this week, well not unless the nutty medium lady came back as a season regular, but this episode was still a bit boring decent as Camille Grammer continued to top herself in her quest to be the most vile housewife in Bravo history. Seriously, how many more weeks until she’s kicking puppies?
The 10th episode of the season starts out with some of the housewives, Kyle, Adrienne and Kim filling in their loved ones on the previous night’s events aka the dinner from hell. Feel free to cue up a mental image of Allison puffing on an electronic cigarette.

It seems NYC Housewife Jill Zarin is back at it again! Well, we’ll just let you read this story and be the judge.
A new report by Popeater’s Rob Shuter reveals Jon Gosselinhas finally landed himself a job! Yes, a job, a real job with no relation to reality television. And according to Popeater, we all have one Bravolebrity to thank.
“Jon is very close with Jill Zarin from ‘Real Housewives of New York,’ ” an “insider” tells Popeater. “It was Jill who told Jon to stay out of the spotlight and get himself a real job. Fame is fun but doesn’t pay the bills.”
So what exactly is Jon’s new job? Apparently, Jon is now working for a real estate developer. A source adds that Jon has gotten his life together and now sees his children three to four times a week.
“Jon is in a great place,” a friend of Jon’s reveals. “He is happy and knows what a fool he made of himself after his split from Kate. He has been getting a lot of TV offers, including interest from ‘Dancing With the Stars,’ and has turned them all down. If he never sees a TV camera again in his life it will be too soon.”
Meanwhile, the report adds that we should not expect to see Kate Gosselin off our TV screens anytime soon. Despite the fact that the ratings of her show Kate Plus 8 continue to drop, the show is still doing well enough for the TLC network. Her show continues to remain in the top 10 for TLC and the network reportedly isn’t looking to part ways with her anytime soon.
“Even if her show did get canceled, Kate would find a way to still be famous,” a friend of Kate states. “She addicted to it.”
Who would have thought we would see the day when Jon would become the “normal” parent. Also nice to see Jill is still as crafty as ever.
