I don’t know about you, but I miss MichaeleandTareq Salahi. Best known for crashing a White House State Dinner in 2009, they can be blamed for the cancellation of the ill-fated Real Housewives of D.C., a franchise that was noted for its lack of drama and for the higher IQ points of their cast members. The remaining housewives refused to film if Michaele was kept on the cast, and Bravo, knowing that only she would bring the drama (and the LOLs) promptly went ahead and eliminated the show from their schedule.
Never daunted by anything, the Salahis continued their reign of fame-whoredom. She even made an appearance on Celebrity Rehab, until she was kicked out for not actually having an addiction. Since then, the pair have only been in the news due to Michale and Tareq’s divorce, which in their usual fashion, happened in a truly ridiculous manner.
Michaele left Tareq for Journey guitarist Neal Schon, a relationship she called a “fairy tale.” Let’s not forget she ran off with Neal, after Tareq reported her missing (after calling his pals at TMZ, of course), when in reality she had finally had enough of Tareq’s BS. Proving he’s made of nothing but class, Tareq found solace in the mesh arms of Michael Lohan.
So, it was no surprise at all to see Tareq gracing the front page of TMZ yet again with a new attention-grabbing scheme. This time, he has filed a lawsuit against Neal for $50 million dollars. He’s been talking about this lawsuit for a while now, and has finally filed in it in his home state of Virginia.
I’m ashamed to say that the lawsuit (kinda) makes some sense: Tareq claims that he and Michaele had a few business and television offers on the table, which were no longer available to him after his divorce (the Salahis are a package deal, after all). While I believe the Salahis probably did have offers for things like opening up a 7-11 or celebrity wrestling, I don’t believe, as Tareq claims, that Dancing With The Stars was ever a realistic offer. But, still, Tareq kinda has a point here.
In a more disturbing piece of news, Tareq also alleges that Neal sent him a photo of his penis, and also called to let him know, “I’m f**king your wife.” Tareq called it, “a metaphorical slap in the face.”
Tareq is suing Neal for “emotional distress, conspiracy to defame, interfering with a contract and defamation” and as an extra-special bonus, he wants $450k in punitive damages.
We wish Tareq the best of luck in his penis picture lawsuit. Michaele on the other hand, seems pretty content being a rock-star girlfriend and the pair even showed off their true love in the following video for Journey‘s song, Resonate. I must warn you that you shouldn’t eat while watching the video. You might get sick or ruin your computer when you bust out laughing at the sight of Michaele walking down the beach pensively in sepia-tone. Or when you see her and Neal swapping spit on the sand. You’ve been warned!

I know it seems like they’ve been gone for a while, but thankfully the ladies of Basketball Wives: L.A. are back on the radar as the show begins shooting soon! We’re sure to get updates on all the craziness…and first on the list? It’s the tumultuous relationship between Gloria Govan and basketball beau Matt Barnes.
Following their very nasty and public breakup last year, the duo was recently spotted in West Hollywood at Greystone Manor. Also partying with the pair? Rihanna, Tyga and Drake were reportedly also at the club. The couple, who called off their engagement last season, were seen holding hands and getting cozy throughout the night.
It’s interesting to hear the two are apparently back together, seeing as it was just November when rumors that Matt was datingEva Longoria were swirling amid several sightings of the basketballer and the small-screen queen. Both of course denied any hanky panky and gave the age-old “just friends” response.
Apparently, a reconciliation is in the works, as Sister2Sister comments on the pair’s relationship as well. The site notes that Gloria was interviewed by “The Staci Harris” and revealed that filming for the Los Angeles franchise of the show will commence at the end of this month. That wasn’t the only tidbit information garnered from Gloria’s chat – it is reported that Matt had tagged along and was in the building while she was giving her interview.
Below are pics that seem to confirm a Gloria and Matt reconciliation. Also below are photos from TheYBF.com of Gloria’s recent sexy swimsuit photo shoot for Dimez Magazine.

Tonight marks the season premiere of Survivor: One World, the show’s twenty-fourth exciting season of ultimate endurance. This season takes the castaways back to the South Pacific for an extreme battle of the sexes as the two teams–the all-male Manono and the all female Salani–fight to remain on the island and win the $1 million dollar prize!
In another all-new twist, for the first time both tribes will share the same beach from the very beginning, allowing for alliances with the opposite teams to be forged from the start – meaning even bigger drama once the two tribes merge!
In a third exciting twist, the castaways will be confronted with hidden immunity idols for each tribe. If a castaway finds one of the hidden idols for their own tribe, they can keep it for themselves or give it to another castaway on their team. HOWEVER, if they find one of the other team’s immunity idols, it must be given to a person on the opposing team!
Host Jeff Probst also warned that the castaways will be randomly subjected to “Do It Yourself” challenges, or challenges without his supervision. Things are going to be very interesting this season! See a clip of tonight’s premiere below!
Survivor: One World premieres on CBS at 8/7c!

Last night’s third segment of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Reunion began with Taylor, threw in some PamDana, and ended with Kyle and Kim rebuilding their relationship. It was nice to see some real positivity on the show after a season of nonsense and unpredictability. I, for one, hope Kim is able to move forward with peace and positivity.
Things began with Taylor opening up about her gut feeling that foul play may have been involved in Russell‘s death. Perhaps it was. Who knows what to believe at this point. I do know that Camille‘s face when Taylor was talking about this was priceless and amazing and I need a meme of that immediately.
Taylor regales the audience with tales of Russell surveying her in their home, claiming she found a tape recorder under the desk of her office when she was checking the printer. Is she sure the FBI didn’t install those to catch some griftin’ in action? Taylor also describes how Russell made her take a polygraph test to prove she was faithful to him. When she passed, he accused her of knowing how to cheat a polygraph. That, I believe is a very good possibility! Finally, a story of her’s I wholeheartedly believe!

Talking to Celebuzz, Alexis touches on her issues with former friend turned arch-nemesis Peggy Tanous, her thoughts on Russell Armstrong’s tragic death – yes she has opinions, as well as her business endeavors – no she has yet to give up on her clothing line! Below are excerpts from Alexis’ interview -
Late last year, Peggy announced that she is leaving the show. Was it a relief for you to hear that?
It’s so hard, because one day, I wake up and I’m thinking, “What happened? Where did our friendship go wrong? Why did we end up where we are?” And then the next day, I wake up and I’ve seen an episode of how terrible she was [to me], or I remember something that happened and how it was such a shady friendship the minute she got the show, [which] makes me [think] “Oh my gosh, I’m so glad she’s off [the show].” But right now, at this exact moment … I don’t put a lot of emphasis on thinking about her. If she was there and she was a part of the show, great. If she’s not, great. I wish her well. In the first two episodes, you’re gonna see her and I get into it, and it’s gonna probably be the last time you’ll see us interact together.
Do you think your friendship can be salvaged?
I always hope that a friendship can be salvaged, just because I’m kind of a dreamer; I like to think the positive in everything. But at this point, I honestly don’t know. I think there’s been a lot of things that have occurred over the past year and a half, and I just saw a side of Peggy that – I mean, for her to be able to flip that quickly, like, the minute that she became a member of the show, to just switch and go become good friends with Tamra [Barney], and forget about me. I mean, it was like she was all about the limelight and not really thinking about a true friendship.
Did your perception of Real Housewives change amid the Russell Armstrong tragedy?
I mean, that is just something that you just – I mean, it took my breath away! I can’t picture something like that happening. I am sure the show played a little bit in it, just because your life is exemplified in front of millions [of viewers], and things can be said about you that aren’t necessarily true. Once it’s out there, people believe it whether it’s true or not … But I think, at the end of the day, you have to remember, it’s a show, you’re here to entertain people. Don’t take it too personally. I think that him and Taylor, obviously, had a lot going on, and I just wish it would have had a different ending, you know? You always think, “What if?” And for Taylor, it feels that way.
Tell us about the new Housewife, Heather. Did you all get along with her?
Well, I think that, at the end of the day, when it’s all said and done and the season plays out, I think we’re all gonna kind of get along with her. Her and Gretchen [Rossi] had a little bit of a tiff at the beginning. Then, Heather and I get into it a little bit in the middle, and then we have a big blow-up in episode 10-ish. So, once that was all said and done, I felt like Heather and I moved past it and pushed everything aside. I can’t really tell you what it’s about, but I break down in tears and have eyelashes falling off. It’s just a nightmare. It’s not going to be a pretty episode for me [Laughs] … I think Heather is a little buttoned up. Sometimes, she talks like she knows more about things than other people. But, at the end of the day, I think that she’s a really, really sweet person, and I really genuinely like her personality.
So, tell us a little bit more about the second line of Alexis Couture.
It is so crazy! Well, I have two lines. I have Alexis Couture, by myself, where I don’t have anyone else working on that with me, except for my production manager … I only have three dresses in that line, because I launched my first dress, the Black-Braid Maxi, last season, and it went like crazy. I sold more of that one dress than all of the dresses than Alexis by Tal Sheyn sold. That dress is still selling, and I’m gonna bring it out in another color … And then I partnered with Tal Sheyn for Alexis by Tal Sheyn, because she was designing one-of-a-kinds for me, and I had a vision for what I wanted to do. There’s only one of me, and I couldn’t do it! So, together with her, we came up with my first Alexis by Tal Sheyn line. That one did really, really well. Now, we’re launching my second one, and now my second one is doing better than my first one even did and it hasn’t even launched yet! We’re out there marketing it. It hasn’t launched on the show, but it is just crazy! It’s so exciting!
Is the goal to eventually open up your own store?
We just started looking for retail spaces to have a showroom. We are in boutiques now. We’re in one in Orange County, and we’ve almost solidified two or three in Los Angeles. And then we’re even looking at go overseas. Israel is very interested; Australia is very interested. We have a lot of customers from Europe. We’re just getting our feet into those markets and we’re gonna be in boutiques throughout the United States and throughout the world.
Alexis shared some new photos from her Alexis Couture clothing line, and those are below!
In other Alexis news, she is also sharing the secrets to her very happy marriage in an interview with Radar Online, because clearly, we all aspire to have a happy marriage like hers!
Alexis, who shares a previous failed marriage with hubby Jim Bellino, advises couples should never spend more than two nights apart, treat each other with respect at all times, and not call each other names when arguing. “No matter how mad you get… you cannot take your words back,” says Alexis.
In addition to having 20-minute meetings each night after dinner to catch up, Alexis reveals her and Jim always pray together, go to therapy regularly and have a date night at least once a week.
And finally, a new episode of the OC Housewives airs tonight on Bravo! On the 2nd episode this season titled “Southern Hospitality,” Vicki hosts a dinner party, but Peggy and Alexis stir the pot with a fiery feud. Drama is at such a high boil that Peggy ends up making a game-changing decision. Meanwhile, Gretchen poses nude at a charity photo shoot; newbie housewife Heather Dubrow flaunts her privileged life; Vicki and Tamra embark on an overnight trip to Catalina.
The episode airs tonight on Bravo at 9/8c and a preview clip is below!

In news I’m sure many of you already expected, reports are claiming Kim Kardashian is back together with her ex, Reggie Bush! Say it isn’t so, Reggie! Listen to your mama!
The former couple has been seen out and about together several times over the last few days, according to TMZ, and it’s no surprise given that Kim has been trying to worm her way back into Reggie’s affections ever since the duo split in 2010. This isn’t the first time the two have reportedly been seen together, a few months ago the tabloids claimed Kim and Reggie were partying at a club in Miami, only to have it revealed that Kim was actually at home pining for Reggie, while he was out with another hot brunette that resembled Kim! Oops.
This time, onlookers spotted Kim, Reggie, and friends having lunch at Beverly Hills’ Cabana Club on Sunday. Kim was predictably dressed inappropriately for the occasion. “Kim was joined by a female friend and Reggie was with a friend, too. She was wearing a minidress and platforms with full hair and makeup,” an eyewitness tells Life & Style. “Kim sat right next to Reggie and looked really comfortable.”
“She and her girlfriend were laughing [with the guys],” a witness reports. “It was obvious that they’d all planned to get together and didn’t just run into each other.” Sources report that the former couple was touchy-feeling with each other. “They were being careful, you could tell,” a witness described. Maybe Reggie was afraid of catching something… Although, “Kim gave Reggie a kiss goodbye on the cheek.”
So how did these two start hanging out again? As previous reports have stated, the Keeping Up With The Kardashian star went crawling back to Reggie following her divorce, pretending she needed a shoulder to cry on! “He’s been supportive to her since the breakup of her marriage, and they wanted to go out for lunch,” an insider reveals.
The insider adds,”It wasn’t romantic. If Kim had any feelings that it was going to be romantic, she wouldn’t have gone somewhere so public.” Why do I believe it was REGGIE that wanted to avoid the romance?
Kim and Reggie’s lunch lasted approximately an hour and the two were friendly when approached by fans for photos and autographs, according to TMZ. Interestingly, wanting to be away from the constant spotlight is one of the reasons Reggie allegedly dumped Kim! That, and her incessant famewhoring – which we know has only worsened!
Moving on to another desperate famewhore, Kim’s former publicist, Jonathan Jaxson, who learned from the best on how to get meaningless attention from the media, claims he has retained the services of Kris Humprhies‘ attorney!
Jonathan served as Kim’s publicist before she became a sex tape star aka mega famewhore, and went on record last year calling Kim’s wedding a publicity stunt; accusing her of buying her own engagement ring long before she ever met Mr. Humphries. Photos of Kim wearing an eerily similar diamond were discovered. Jonathan then started threatening to release a Kimmie Kakes tell-all, with the intent to expose her media whoring ways to the world! Kim in return slapped Jonathan with a lawsuit for $200,000!
Well now, Jonathan is fighting back against Kim’s attempts to silence him! Jonathan retained the services of Lee A. Hutton, a man who is rapidly becoming the anti-Kardashian attorney because Jonathan wants retribution for Kim ruining his life after she accused him of defaming her.
“I’ve been through hell and back,” he tells the NY Daily News. “I want the truth to be heard and, medically, to be clear of all the stress they have put on me.”
Apparently Kim, via her lawyer Marty Singer, threatened Jonathan with a defamation of character lawsuit. In November of 2011, Mr. Singer sent a demand for arbitration claiming Jonathan had violated a confidentiality clause he signed by speaking to the press about Kim’s behavior.
A source with knowledge of the situation, explains Mr. Singer had 90 days to continue with the claims via arbitration, but the deadline passed on Thursday without any further action on Kim’s part. It’s likely because Kim’s attorneys are so busy with her many other legal issues…
Jonathan contests that he signed a confidentiality contract and he is also furious over Kim’s claims that he never acted as her publicist. Jonathan claims he has proof that their business relationship began in 2007 and lasted for two years. Perhaps Kimmie is afraid Jonathan will spill the beans that she released her own sex tape about how her sex tape actually leaked to the press!
Jonathan says the stress of the impending lawsuit was so upsetting he attempted suicide, which resulted in thousands of dollars in medical bills. He isn’t sure if he’s going to sue Kimmie, but he wants an attorney just in case. And who better than one already fighting the Kardashian Kamp!
“He’s willing to take a stand and fight against this family and most people are scared to do so,” Jonathan explains. “He’s the best for the situation and it’s not because he represents Kris Humphries.” Mr. Hutton has not confirmed that he is working with Jonathan. Something sounds fishy about this!
Finally, where there is a Red Carpet and some cameras, you’ll find Kim! The desperate for attention Kim attended the Clive Davis Pre-Grammy Gala this past weekend, where she seemed to forget it was a somber occasion and instead opted to slut it up!
As I’m sure you’re all well aware, the party occurred hours after it was discovered that icon Whitney Houston had passed away. Kim, as were all the attendees, was informed of Whitney’s passing, as evidenced by the this tweet: “Just heard the tragic news that Whitney Houston passed away. I pray for her daughter & loved ones. We will always love you Whitney…,” sent before the party.
It seems that in light of the tragic news nearly every other female attendee (EVEN Britney Spears!) swapped their party gear for a respectable and classy black dress – save for Kim who showed up in a tight, bright blue, bedazzled number with her mammaries popping out for all the world to see! I can’t say I’m surprised…
Photos of Kim’s disrespectful and inappropriate attire are below!

Two conflicting reports came in this week on Teen Mom 2′s resident jailbird, Jenelle Evans, and who will have custody over her son Jace. Currently, her mother Barbara Evanshas temporary custody of him until June 10. And an insider is blabbing that Janelle wants her mother to permanently adopt Jace, so she can continue to live her hard-partying lifestyle.
Talking to Reality Weekly, the source states, “She has told friends that she knows it means giving Jace up forever, but she genuinely thinks she’s doing the right thing. Jenelle would rather spend her time and money on herself than her son, which is why she wants her mom to officially adopt him. It’s really sad how selfish she is; her priorities are completely out of whack.”
Reality Weekly reports another weighing factor for the 20-year-old MTV star, is the fact that she no longer wants to keep paying her mother child support! Yes, the mag states that Jenelle is always short on money and get this, she reportedly feels the $30-a-week she is being forced to give Barbara is a “burden.” Yikes.
So if Mom adopts Jace, that would end the child support obligation and Jenelle would have more money to spend on her first love, weed. At the moment, Jenelle has scheduled visits with her son, which she is allegedly blowing off because she was has way better things to do (like post to her social media accounts incessantly).
The report recalls a specific incident where Jenelle missed out on a visit because she was too hungover: “A couple of weeks ago she was supposed to look after Jace so that her mom could have a break, but she canceled because she was too partied out. The next day when it came time for her to see her son, she slept in instead.”
“Jenelle always chooses partying over spending time with Jace,” the insider continues. “She resents staying at her mother’s with the baby when she could be out partying.”
Avoiding obligations because of your wicked benders might be okay for a college freshman once or twice, but it’s not looking too hot for a single mom. Due to this, Jenelle and her mother’s relationship is extremely strained. Another source chimes in and says, “Her relationship with her mother is still terrible. She still brags about partying every day and has practically no relationship with her son.”
Jenelle however took to her Facebook to deny the report, claiming: “My mother will never adopt Jace. As usual … I’m getting myself 100% straightened out before I get him back.” That might be true, but it’s worth noting that Jenelle was arrested twice in the same week this year, and has had multiple restraining orders filed against her. A volatile, violent person is not an ideal situation for a child, and Jenelle has a lot of work to do before convincing anyone she’s ready to be a mother.
Luckily, Jace has Barbara to advocate for him. A source says, “Barbara has done everything she can to make her daughter take responsibility, but it hasn’t worked. Her mom just wants what’s best for Jace. She can see that Jenelle is not in a place to be a mother. Ultimately, Jenelle’s mom loves Jace enough to step up and adopt him.”
The finale of Teen Mom 2 airs tonight on MTV at 10/9c.

I have such a love/hate relationship with Bravo. I love to hate it. I hate how much I love it. Given the network’s newest brainchild, Shahs of Sunset, I am hatefully smitten. I CANNOT WAIT to watch. In a recent press release, Bravo fills in viewers on what is sure to be our next very guilty pleasure.
The premise of what is being touted as a “docu-series” follows the stories of six Persian-American friends in Los Angeles. The kicker? While we are used to watching beautiful young people navigate friendships, social scenes, and budding careers, this program also focuses on a different aspect of the soon-to-be introduced group. The series will watch its cast members as they work towards successful positions in California while balancing the family and traditions of their old-world community.
The show will film the young men and women as they create individual identities and new opportunities while facing the pressures put upon them by family to settle down within their culture. We will join the cast mates as they socialize with the creme de la creme, shop at Pretty Women style Rodeo Drive boutiques, and bypass the red velvet rope at the hottest clubs. However, the most intriguing part of the show (for me) deals with Bravo newbies juggling these opulent scenarios with the traditional customs of their family’s values.
Even better? The king of reality television–Ryan Seacrest himself–is jumping E!’s ship expanding his network-ial (new word) horizons to produce the Bravo show along side Adam Sher and Pete Tartaglia. Even though I am strongly opposed to all things Kardashian, I am quite on board with all things Seacrest. It’s quite the conundrum, but I’m working my way through it…with counseling…from Andy Cohen. Don’t I wish? Read on to see the bios of the stars of Shahs of Sunset!
Set your DVRs and TIVOs dear readers! Shahs of Sunset premieres on Bravo Sunday, March 11 at 10 PM ET.
