After weathering the storm of a sex tape release, a new Life&Style article is insinuating that there is trouble in paradise for former Playboy model Kendra Wilkinson and NFL hubby Hank Baskett.
According to the magazine, Kendra, 25, has decided to move to LA without her husband, who will remain 1,500 miles away from her in Minnesota.
“She’s moving back to LA,” an insider reveals to Life & Style. “It’ll happen in mid-October. She made the decision firmly and told Hank.”
The insider adds that Hank is not happy about the move and having to be away from his wife and 10-month-old son Hank Jr. “Hank is pissed,” says the insider. “The fighting between Kendra and him is bad. They’ve had teary fights and crying fits. They’ve been screaming at each other. He can’t understand why she won’t come to Minnesota. Every day is torture for him.”
The mag reveals that the real reason Kendra is moving to LA is to focus on her career as her Kendra reality show on E! is one of the main sources of stability in her life. Plus Hank has spent the past 2 years of his NFL career playing in at least 3 different states.
“In her mind, it’s not her fault Hank can’t keep a job,” a second insider tells Life & Style. “She has a job too — plus friends in LA and family in San Diego. She’s not going to Minnesota and destroy her career.”

Airing tonight is the reunion show during which the ladies will finally get to confront the Salahis on their many lies and BS. One can only hope the reunion stage has no back door or garage exit for which the Salahis will try to use in an attempt to escape taking any responsibility for their actions.
A Bravo press release reveals, “The ladies hold nothing back as they discuss Cat’s rocky marriage, Michaele’s recent admission that she battles Multiple Sclerosis, Stacie’s continuing search for her birth father and more. The men of D.C. join their ladies on the couch and things get heated as they confront Tareq Salahi about breaking the “guy code.”
Hosted by Bravo’s Andy Cohen, some of the most burning questions are answered: What is the state of Cat’s marriage? Which of the wives set up Lynda and Ebong to meet? Was Michaele really a Redskins cheerleader? What do the women really think of Tareq? Does Stacie think Cat is a racist? As well as a Housewives staple – who’s gotten Botox? And of course, we get even further into what exactly happened on the night of the White House State Dinner.”
If it seems as if you’re being bombarded with a new Housewives franchise every couple of weeks, it’s likely because you are.
The latest franchise coming our way tonight is the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. The premiere episode, airing at 10/9c on Bravo, will introduce us to the six new ladies who are getting ready to stick their heads into the Bravo Housewives toilet.
While the most of the other housewives series feature unknowns, this series stars some well known names. The most famous cast member would have to be Camille Grammer, who recently filed for divorce from husband actor Kelsey Grammer after 14 years of marriage. In case you haven’t been keeping up with the divorce drama, Kelsey then went on to impregnate his new girlfriend just weeks after Camille filed for divorce, and just last week, Kelsey announced publicly that his much younger girlfriend suffered a miscarriage.
So what can we expect in tonight’s premiere? A Bravo press release states “Sisters Kyle and Kim Richards have trouble seeing eye-to-eye on anything and aren’t afraid to fight it out. Kyle, who promised her mom she’d look after her sister isn’t sure if she can keep her word with so much inter-family drama happening. Meanwhile, Lisa VanderPump happily welcomes house guests to join her and her husband Ken. Lisa’s personal trainer and close friend may turn out to be the house guest that never leaves. But in a mansion like Lisa’s, who can blame him? Join these ladies in the lap of luxury and enjoy a rich serving of drama tonight.”

Following the recent celebration of his 1 year anniversary with wife Khloe Kardashian (yes, they’ve been married an entire year), Lamar Odom is now taking things a step further by hiring his mother-in-law to be his manager.
“Kris Jenner now manages Lamar Odom. He has asked her to manage him off the court a few months ago,” confirms Lamar’s rep Eve Sarkisyan to TMZ.
“Their first project together would be his and Khloe’s fragrance which is set to launch next year.” Kris will also be responsible for handling Lamar’s paid appearances, setting up endorsement deals, and any other personal marketing activities.
TELL US – MIXING BUSINESS WITH FAMILY, A GOOD OR BAD IDEA?
The Real Housewives of Atlanta discusses her relationship with castmates Kim Zolciak and Nene Leakes, dating NFL player Willis McGahee (who is rumored to have 7 kids by multiple women), and why she almost didn’t return to the show this season.
“To be honest with you, I didn’t know if I was coming back,” she says. “I was like, ‘Eh, I don’t know.’” Kandi, who has an album coming out on Dec. 14, ultimately decided to return for business reasons. “It’s both good and bad being on this show. I’m glad to be part of a successful series, of course, but there are other things that [the cast] can’t talk about on our end that we feel should be better,” says Kandi, likely referring to not earning enough money from the show.
Excerpts from Kandi’s interview below -
TVGuide.com: I have to know. Did you work on Kim’s new song, “Google Me“?
Burruss: No, actually a friend of mine did.
TVGuide.com: Ah, good. Because “Tardy for the Party” was better.
Burruss: Yeah [laughs]. I did do a new song for Kim called “The Ring Didn’t Mean A Thing.” You’ll see it this season. Kim and I also went on a promo tour, which was a little crazy. She performs live. It was small, just three cities, and I kind of took her like an opening act. We did a tour bus and everything. It was … interesting.
TVGuide.com: And how is your relationship with NeNe these days?
Burruss: We’re cool. We don’t have any beef this year. What happened last year was really … I don’t even know how it happened. It didn’t even make sense. It was a moment that went too far. At a certain point when we were promoting the season, it did start to get out of control. We started having arguments over the radio over stupid stuff, and the network had to reach out and say, “You guys need to calm down.” After that, we both kind of checked ourselves. Now we have no issues.
TVGuide.com: You begin dating National Football League running back Willis McGahee this season. What was that like with the cameras following you?
Burruss: Honestly, I would never do that again. He’s a cool guy, but I think when you put it out there in public too soon, before you even have a chance to really get to know each other, I think it gives too many people the opportunity to make an opinion. And they do it before you get to make your own opinion!… Right now, we’re friends. That’s all I can say.
TVGuide.com: Tell me about your upcoming album Kandi Koated.
Burruss: The album takes you on a trip through a relationship. It’s all about finding love, having love, losing love … There are a couple of let’s-get-back-together songs. But it takes you through all those different emotions. It’s an R&B album, and there some very big ballads on there. I had songs from Ne-Yo, Justice League, Brian Michael Cox and Jazzy Pha, who produced the single “Leave U.”
A new episode of The Real Housewives of Atlanta airs Monday at 10/9c on Bravo.
Though the pair remain in love, at least according to them, they no longer feel a rush to get married right away. “We’re waiting a little bit,” she told PEOPLE magazine. “We really want to make sure we’re doing this right.”
Ali however makes it clear their decision to wait has nothing to do with a change in feelings towards each other. “Nothing has changed – we’re still just as happy as we were,” adds Ali, 26. “When we were finished [with the show], we were so excited. We were like, ‘Oh, we’re going to get married right away.’ But if you’re rushing because you’re in love, why rush? [Just] wait. You’re going to get married any way. We’re both sort of enjoying life.”
Ali and Roberto are currently living together in San Diego, CA.

Just a week after news first hit about Rachel Zoebeing pregnant, UsWeekly is now confirming the news.
In the latest issue of the magazine, the pin-thin stylist who is a reported size 00 is confirmed to be expecting her first child with husband of 12 years Rodger Berman.
“It’s very hush-hush,” a source says of the Rachel Zoe Project star. “She’s telling people she can’t travel,” adds the insider. A witness adds that at the Veuve Clicquot Polo Classic event in L.A.’s Pacific Palisades area on Oct. 10, Rachel only sipped on water with lemon, while Rodger drank champagne.
Rachel’s former employee Brad Goreski also had the following to say to UsWeekly without confirming the pregnancy: “I hope to be in the delivery room!”
The above photo of Rachel, 39, was taken on Sunday, October 10. She looks to be sporting a slight baby bump no?
More photos of Rachel below. Must say we are shocked that someone of her size, in addition to her age was able to get pregnant. Congrats to Rachel and Rodger.
