The game began with the final and very anti-climatic Redemption Island challenge. Playing for an opportunity to be voted off again by Rob Mariano were his zombies Andrea, Matt, and Grant alongside Mike. Andrea made it very clear going into the game that she was the “under under dog” so of course the challenge was one that was geared for her she was able to win. It was a challenge which required balance, and after Grant, Matt, and Mike lost balance in that order, Andrea won her shot back into the game.
While it seemed like the perfect opportunity for Rob’s groupies Ashley and Natalie to team up with Andrea and vote off Rob one of the men, they simply failed to use their brains as Rob was able to convince them, quite easily, to vote off Andrea. Rob was so confident in his mind control over his cult members that he even contemplated not playing his idol. Ultimately he did though he didn’t need to as the others voted off Andrea.

While Alexis touches on the issue on tonight’s upcoming episode, she also gave interviews to E! Online & Life & Style magazine. “I suffered from both anorexia and bulimia,” Alexis told E!. “It’s something like alcoholism…Suffering from an eating disorder you can’t go, ‘I’m cured, I’m completely cured,’ but you don’t have to practice it.”
Alexis, 34, reveals her parents’ divorce when she was 12 triggered the disorder. “My teacher called my mom and said she was worried I wasn’t eating,” said Alexis adding that things took a turn for the worse when she turned 18. “In college I would go days without eating, because it does consume you…I would do both, but mostly purging because I would be out with friends. It’s not pretty.”
Ultimately, Alexis decided to seek professional help to stop purging following the collapse of her first marriage in 2002. In 2005, she married her second husband, Jim Bellino who “finally got me to stop counting calories,” Alexis tells Life & Style. “He loves my body. In fact, he says he likes me about 5 pounds heavier.”
With her weight now fluctuating between 118 and 122 pounds, Alexis states she is now doing much better while acknowledging that an eating disorder is a lifelong issue. “It’s not like I’m healed,” she says. “It cannot be cured, but it doesn’t have to be practiced. My goal is to reach other women — and let them know that they can conquer it.”
The Life & Style article also stated that Alexis still watches her weight like a hawk, and that a typical day’s meal plan for her is less than 900 calories. However, two days after the Life & Style article came out, Alexis denied part of the story to the Rumor Fix. “Firstly, I never said I eat 900 calories a day. They asked me what my diet is like and I said that if I overdo it on one day, the next day I will cut back and eat healthier. They came up with that figure. The bowl of ice cream I just had with my kids is probably more than 900 calories! I don’t count my calories, ever,” she stated. Allrighty then.
Meanwhile, on the 11th episode of this season titled, “Cutting Loose,” antics and dramas accent a getaway to San Antonio during which Alexis cuts loose and candidly discusses her home life. In the OC, Tamra Barney’s court case against her ex-husband Simon Barney reaches a fever pitch—with former housewife Jeana Keough upping the drama by opining to the press. A preview clip is below.
The drama between Tamra and Jeana began last October, when Jeana went to the press proclaiming that Simon never hit Tamra. This was after Tamra accused Simon of domestic violence leading to Simon’s arrest though the charges were later dropped. Jeana referred to Tamra as ““very dramatic” and alleged she made up the domestic violence claims against Simon. Following Simon’s arrest, Tamra came out alleging Simon had abused her for years.

A day after TMZ posted a video of her going on a racist tirade which had her using the n-word a total of 12 times in less than 2 minutes, Christina Hopkins is now apologizing for her shameful behavior.
The Bad Girls Club season 5 alum herself got in touch with us on Friday night, telling Reality Tea, “I apologize and take full responsibility for my foul remarks, which stem from a physical altercation.” Christina’s full apology is below -
“The video that was aired on TMZ is a careless and irresponsible rant that was egged on by anger and alcohol in response to a fight I was involved in over a year ago. Moments prior to the recording, I was subjected to racial slurs during a physical fight with a group of African American women. This is not a defense for such foul behavior; however, I take full responsibility for my inexcusable comments. Words cannot erase the pain that I have cause and I hope that those affected by my hurtful words can forgive me.”
Meanwhile, hours after the video hit the net yesterday, the Oxygen network revealed that Christina is now banned from ever appearing on their network again. The network told TMZ, “Oxygen condemns those comments… she will never appear on Oxygen again.”
And finally, Christina’s season 5 costar/nemesis/weak sauceAshley Cheatham is now speaking out against her. Ashley is furious at Christina’s comments, rightfully so, telling TMZ that “being drunk is not an excuse to bring out your inner racism. It’s disgusting and downright offensive … Go get a f**king life. Better yet, do the world a favor and go kill yourself.”
Christina’s signed letter of apology is below -

On this installment of the Real Housewives of New York, “The Mask has Two Faces,” Ramona and Jill butt heads, Sonja shows her butt, and Alex, LuAnn and Cindy are all but(t) forgettable.
This episode begins with a (yet another, yawn) photo shoot, this one to promote Ramona’s skin care line. Ramona admits that she’s often stiff in these situations, and her crazy eyes agree. This woman is hocking moisturizers and vino, but I think she should look into her own brand of shifty contact lenses. Her assistant Melissa tells Ramona she looks like a younger Pamela Anderson in the pictures. Huh? Of course, this comment comes on the heels of Ramona saying that she constantly goes through assistants. Ramona is pleased by the comparison, but this is the same woman who fancies herself an older Cameron Diaz, so clearly she has a skewed view of herself. Sonja arrives to help put Ramona at ease, but mainly she spends a ridiculous amount of time talking about how great her bum looks in her Ralph Lauren jeans.
Downtown, Jill stops by Cindy’s apartment, and I am amazed at how many people are on Ms. Barshop’s payroll. Assistants and nannies are coming out of rooms, closets, balconies, you name it—she has a full house. Cindy admits that she was up all night…hearing the kids crying with the nannies. My former “down to earth, relatively speaking” impression of Cindy no longer exists. The ladies dish about Ramona, and a much calmer than normal Jill is thrilled that Cindy seems willing to stand up to Ramona. Both Jill and Cindy acknowledge that most of Ramona’s friends are scared of her.

As we reported, Doug Wald of Los Angeles-based Raw Talent is claiming he helped Bethenny develop her Skinnygirl cocktail line only to be cut out of the company, which was sold for a reported $120 million to Beam Global in March.
In the court documents, Doug admits the Bethenny Ever After star fired him back in 2008 after managing her for just 3 months. He however feels he is entitled to 10% of the sale proceeds plus $100 million in punitive damages.
“Unfortunately, one of the signs of success is being the subject of frivolous lawsuits, like this one,” said Bethenny in a statement on Thursday. “This is simply someone with his hand out, who did nothing to earn it, and I am not going to be bullied. We are exploring all of our options, including filing counterclaims against these people.”
Doug also alleges in the suit that he was the one who introduced Bethenny to her Skinnygirl drink partner/liquor industry veteran David Kanbar.
Bethenny spoke out once again in a separate statement to PEOPLE. “Life is good for me with all the things that are most important, namely family. But let’s be clear, I am a strong woman, and I am not afraid and won’t back down when I’m bullied by something with zero merit. Success is earned by hard work, not taking advantage of others.”
Meanwhile, Bethenny is keeping her head up as she was photographed above walking the streets of NYC on Wednesday, the same day the lawsuit was filed. A bigger image of Bethenny below.

The Real Housewives of Orange County star was snapped above on May 11 while shopping at Faith Connexion Melrose in LA with her new boyfriend. Yes you read that right, new boyfriend!
That uh lucky? man/Donn look alike is Brooks Ayers and eyewitnesses tell In Touch Weekly the couple looked “very happy and cute together.”
So why has Vicki, 48, been so secretive about her new relationship? Well it all has to do with Bravo. “Vicki hadn’t wanted to go public with Brooks just yet because on the show she’s still with Donn,” an insider tells Life & Style as viewers are still watching her marriage with Donn play out on this season.
“Brooks didn’t come in with her at first, he was waiting outside,” an eyewitness reveals “Then Vicki said, ‘My boyfriend’s in the car, is it okay if he comes in?’ They were all smiles and having a great time.” Sources also reveal that Brooks footed the bill for Vicki’s new clothes!
As for Brooks, he, like Vicki, also works in the insurance industry. He was reportedly “the first in line when he heard she was single. She seems super happy with him,” adds the source.
“Vicki will announce her split from Donn in the June 6 season finale,” reveals a second insider. Another photo of Brooks is below.

A source close to Jenelle confirms the news to Us Weekly. “She is clean right now and has been that way for several weeks,” the insider states. “She’s doing this program to help her cope with all the stress in her life: her family situation, her legal issues, her general anxiety.”
Ok Magazine adds that she began a voluntary 45-day stay at the Malibu drug rehab treatment center on May 7.
Patrick Jay Williams, a friend of Jenelle’s from her hometown tells OK! Jenelle’s past drugs of choice include pot and ecstasy. “She tries to find relief by using pot and Ecstasy. When she takes Ecstasy she gets the feeling that everybody loves her. And in truth, on this island, a lot of people hate her and are jealous of her,” said Patrick.
This doesn’t come as a major surprise as the 19-year-old MTV star has had plenty of run-ins with the law in recent times. In mid-April, she pled guilty to possession of drug paraphernalia with prosecutors promising to drop the charges if she performs 24 hours of community service. She was also sentenced to 12 months of supervised probation.
Jenelle, mother to son Jace, nearly 2, was originally arrested back in October with her boyfriend, KiefferDelp, when the two broke into an abandoned home in Oak Island, North Carolina, in order to smoke marijuana. Kieffer also has a past arrest for possession of cocaine.
And in March, she was arrested again for assault after TMZ posted a video of her attacking another girl. She was released shortly after on bond.
