Uh oh! Is pimpmomager Kris Jenner about to get the boot from her favorite famous for no reason daughter?

According to a report by Star Magazine, that might be the case! Star magazine is reporting that there are rumblings that Kim Kardashian is getting ready to fire her momager!

The reason? Since the huge media backlash that occurred following her disastrous 72-day marriage, a source reveals, “She’s having serious doubts about keeping her mom as her manager. She thinks Kris has been giving her bad advice and she blames all of this backlash on her.” Ouch!

Even more telling, Kim met up with Hollywood manager Ray Manzella on Dec. 1 at a cafe in Pacisif Palisades to discuss potentially bringing him on to work for her. In fact, Ray confirmed to Star that he would like to take Kim on as a client while also admitting he’s been having meetings with people who are involved with Kim’s company.

Another source, however, states that if Kim does decide to bring Ray on board she still plans to keep Kris in some capacity as a figure head. “Kris will be working together with Ray on Kim’s projects,” explains an insider. “Kim hasn’t fired Kris as her managed yet.”

Meanwhile, the barrage of bad publicity continues for the famewhoring family. The Kardashians grace the latest cover of Star magazine (to be released on Friday) under the heading “Kardashian Sweatshop Scandal – Family’s Fashion Empire Makes Millions From Child Labor.”

According to Star, the Kardashian family are selling and endorsing fashion products manufactured in foreign sweatshops, where workers as young as sixteen years old are abused and virtually imprisoned.

“The Kardashians are in bed with some pretty bad people,” Charles Kernaghan, the executive director of the Institute for Global Labour and Human Rights, tells Star. “Not only are celebrities like the Kardashians taking advantage of these workers, they are holding hands with a government that spits on democracy and women’s rights.”

Several of the Kardashian brands are said to be involved with the “slave labor.” These include items in the family’s high-end K-Dash by Kardashian label and the Kris Jenner Kollection — which is sold on QVC —in addition to ShoeDazzle, which was co-founded by Kim and endorsed by her. The report states all of the mentioned brands are manufactured in areas of China where government regulations are often ignored and workers are subject to inhumane conditions.

Li Qiang, the executive director of China Labor Watch, is now urging the greedy Kardashian family to take a stand and to stop turning a blind eye to human rights abuses. “People like the Kardashians are producing their products in China because they will get more profit, since the labor cost is so low compared to the United States and other countries,” he tells Star.

In addition to underage labor, the condition of the workshops is compared to being “like minimum-security prisons.” The workers, who earn a measly $1 per hour, are helping add to the $65 million a year fortune of the Kardashians by living in “squalid factory-run dormitories filled with the stench of sewage while toiling up to 84 hours during seven-day work weeks.”

Wowzers. The Kardashians are, however, of course denying they knew anything about this. “This is the first we are hearing about it and take it very seriously as we would never condone this,” their rep Jill Fritzo told Radaronline on behalf of the Kardashians. “We are presently investigating the situation.” You can read more about this in the latest issue on Star!

Moving on to a lighter topic as Kris Humphries has finally been picked up by an NBA team! Even better for Kimmie’s husband of 2 months, he was re-signed by his former team — the New Jersey Nets. According to reports, Kris signed a one year contract with Nets, with ESPN reporting the deal is worth close to $8 million! Not too shabby.

Finally, after releasing photos from their Christmas Card this year, the Kardashians need more attention and have now released some heavily photoshopped behind the scenes pics! Those are below!

Merry New Jersmas! In today’s Real Housewives of New Jersey news, Joe Giudice has been indicted! Despite the rumors that Juicy was able to get off the hook for using a fraudulently obtained driver’s license by ratting out a DMV employee, Joe was indicted by a Passaic Country Grand jury this Tuesday!

Earlier this week the Giudices had some good news when they were able to withdraw their bankruptcy petition and avoid bankruptcy fraud charges, but alas with the good often comes the bad.

According to the NorthJersey.com, Joe was charged with one count wrongfully using identifying information of another and one count impersonation when in 2010 he used his brother Pietro (Pete) Giudice‘s information — including his marriage and birth certificates to fraudulently get a license at the Patterson DMV. If you recall, Juicy, the stellar citizen that he is, initially had his license suspended after he was arrested for a DUI in January 2010. That arrest was included in Season 2 of RHONJ.

Juicy was caught after his brother Pete was pulled over in a routine traffic stop last March and according to Passaic County Prosecutor Camelia M. Valdes, when authorities ran Pete’s license the search returned Pete’s information with Joe’s photo! This caused a red flag for officers, as Joe’s license was and still is suspended, and the Financial Crimes Unit opened an investigation. Joe has a long history of driving related issues — his license has been suspended NINE times over the years.

During their investigation the Motor Vehicle Commission, along with the police, discovered that Juicy had gotten the license fraudulently using his brother’s identification documents. Joe was arrested in March, 2011. A copy of his mugshot is below.

As a result of Joe’s actions he faces up to 10 years in prison for wrongfully using identifying information and a maximum of another 18-months for the impersonation charge. Joe has not been sentenced for his crimes yet, and interestingly it does not appear that his brother faces charges related to Joe’s impersonation. Reality Tea will keep you posted on the updates related to this matter.

As for Teresa Giudice, she has yet to comment on her husband’s indictment, and all of her cast mates seem to be keeping quiet as well.  Teresa did what she does best — distracted herself from the bad news by putting on a happy face and releasing her family Christmas Cards.  The cards feature her four daughters, Gia, Gabriella, Milania, and Audriana dressed as very cute, yet mischievous elves. You can view the cards below.

In other RHONJ husbands who do wrong news, Jacqueline Laurita is defending her husband Chris Laurita to fans after he was slapped with a lawsuit for stealing the blk. water concept, in addition to misappropriation of the trademark and breach of contract.

It all started with Twitter — which seems to be where most of Jac’s problems begin — when she tweeted: “This months “Hit List” in Beverage World magazine. One of the most innovative products! BLK! …..”

Sadly, Jacqueline made this tweet after it was reported that her husband, along with Albie and Chrsitopher Manzo, were served with the suit. A follower called Jacqueline out, tweeting: “I don’t think I would be bragging about something my husband stole.” Burn! And Jacqueline immediately DM (Direct Messaged) the Tweeter with the following information: “He didn’t steal anything. I guess you’ll soon find that out. Don’t be so ignorant.”

The Twitter user in question, Jeanne Dorsey, turned this information over to AllAboutTRH, who immediately gave readers the scoop. Dang, someone needs to deactivate Jackie’s Twitter account. Chris? Andy Cohen? Caroline? Are you listening out there? Get this woman off Twitter!!

THOUGHTS ON JOE’S INDICTMENT? DO YOU BELIEVE HE WILL SERVE TIME? SHOULD HE? THOUGHTS ON THE CHRISTMAS CARDS: RIDICULOUS, TACKY, OR CUTE? WHAT DO YOU BELIEVE HAPPENED WITH BLK. WATER – STOLEN OR A FRIVOLOUS LAWSUIT?

Last night’s Teen Mom 2 doubled the depressing. Jenelle Evans and Kailyn Lowry both battled issues with their distant mothers, while Leah Messer-Simms and Chelsea Houska spent twice the time in the hospital.

Leah is taking time off work to spend time with the twins. She can’t get over her anxiety about Ali’s impending brain MRI. Leah tells her friend that while her daughters are her world, her life would be very different — and probably much easier — if she had waited to have children.

Kailyn is signing the lease on Isaac’s and her new digs. She found the apartment through a non-profit group and she’s keeping the news secret from her mother after getting an ugly note from her mom’s live-in boyfriend. Kailyn is excited to share the news with her boyfriend Jordan and has already decided to turn the laundry room into a small nursery for Isaac since she doesn’t have a washer and dryer.  Jordan seems excited about the prospect of being able to visit Kailyn and Isaac without having to deal with her mom or Jo… although it’s hard to tell, as he’s almost as monotone as his girlfriend.

In today’s not so shocking news, former Real Housewives of DC star Michaele Salahi is accusing her estranged husband, Tareq Salahi, of physical violence in a new lawsuit.

In the suit, uncovered by TMZ, Michaele wants a judge to grant her a separation asap as she states Tareq is a violent control freak who uses psychotic scare tactics and physical violence to control her.

Michaele, who famously ran away with Journey guitarist Neal Schon back in September, says she did so to get away from Tareq because she feared for her safety.

As for the physical abuse claims, Michaele says the final straw came on September 11 when she returned home a few hours late from running an errand. She alleges Tareq waited for her in the dark, in the basement and told her she needed to learn a lesson. Michaele ended up fleeing with Neal two days later.

Tareq is of course denying the allegations, telling TMZ that Michaele is a “chronic liar” while calling her allegations “absurd.”  Tareq insists he truly loved her and did all he could to support her during their marriage.

Last month, Tareq filed a $17 million lawsuit against Michaele and Neal  for what he called “publicly humiliating him with their torrid affair.”

What first appeared to be just rumors now seems like the real deal as a new report is stating Emily Maynard is very close to signing on as the next Bachelorette!

Life & Style magazine reports that Emily, former Bachelor winner and ex-fiance of Brad Womack, has officially been asked by ABC to become the next Bachelorette.

Even better, Emily, 25, is reportedly very interested in the gig! “It’s basically a done deal,” a source close to Emily reveals. “She hasn’t signed the contract yet, but she’s fully on board.”

It appears Emily, single mother to 6-year-old Ricki, has had a change of heart as she stated last summer that she didn’t want the gig following her breakup with Brad.

Life & Style states Emily is ready to find love again and ABC believes she is perfect for The Bachelorette: “Emily is America’s sweetheart,” the source adds. “Fans are going to be thrilled! Everyone loved her.”

Last night on the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, the power of an email haunts Kyle’s infamous White Party. Aaaahhh… The white party. The party of parties of parties. Known throughout the BH as the fete of the year. It’s dashing, it’s whimsical — it’s a slew of wealthy ladies in sequined bed sheets berating each other! Just another Beverly Hills evening, nothing to see here folks!

Things start out with Adrienne breezing into Paul’s office to regale him with the story of litigious emails. Apparently after Camille outed Taylor’s claims to the world, Taylor raced back home and told Russell that Camille has been spilling lies and Russell dashed off his version of a pleasant email to Camille and threatened to sue her for “false and slanderous remarks that could damage his business.”

Adrienne sums it up thusly: “Friends don’t sue friends. Or threaten to sue friends.” Perhaps this is how you figure out who your real friends are in the ol’ BH. If you don’t get slapped with a lawsuit or a sis and desis you’re besties!

Real Housewives of Atlanta star Sheree Whitfield continues to open up about her court case drama with costar Phaedra Parks!

After Phaedra agreed to represent Sheree in her child support case with ex-husband Bob Whitfield, the ladies eventually decided to end their professional relationship amicably as Sheree felt Phaedra was outsmarted by her ex in court. Many felt Sheree was ungrateful as there was nothing Phaedra could have done to prevent her ex from filing an order of contempt against her.

During her appearance on the Watch What Happens Live Aftershow on Sunday night, Sheree went into more details about why she felt Phaedra didn’t represent her well. Sheree’s defense is that Phaedra volunteered to file a contempt motion on her behalf (didn’t she tell Phaedra NOT to file???), but Bob beat her to the punch two weeks later because Phaedra was waiting to get clearance for Bravo cameras.

“I never met with Phaedra outside of your cameras. So to me when I’m meeting with her, and I’m saying this is my life. Like even if the cameras are not there, what you’re supposed to do, I still need you to do it,” said Sheree.

Sheree also talked about Phaedra’s employees hounding her to get the retainer. “I love Phaedra. I didn’t want to end it in a bad way but it didn’t sit well with me when it kind of made it seem like they were hounding me, asking me, trying to get this money when that is not the case. When Phaedra asked me for the money, it was the day before… She had her people call me… I get a phone call. They’re like we need the money. I never got a contract. I never got any kind of paper work,” said Sheree.

DOES SHEREE OWE HER EX BOB WHITFIELD OVER $400,000?

“The money part came in after Bob filed because it takes it to a whole other level. Before it was something very simple when she volunteered to file the contempt but she never did it because the cameras couldn’t get to her in time,” continued Sheree.

Sheree adds that by the time they went to court a month later, Phaedra had still yet to file anything. “The only time Phaedra and I met off camera was with another attorney who is a family attorney who was actually coaching her on how to handle my case,” added Sheree.

And on the actual WWHL show, Sheree fired back at the criticism that she shouldn’t be suing for child support if she can afford expensive items such as a Hermes bag, designer clothes and a Porsche to replace her old seized Bentley.

“This is the ignorant thing that I hate to hear people say,” said Sheree. “Why are you fighting for child support? First of all, I did not make these kids by myself. We did this together. So I shouldn’t have to fight you to be responsible for your kids.”

Meanwhile, Sheree also debuted her new song “Who Gon Check Me Boo” on WWHL. Some are calling it a diss track to her costar Nene Leakes though Sheree denies the allegations. We’ll let you be the judge! Below is Sheree’s song!

In other RHOA news, former show extra cast member Dwight Eubanks was arrested yesterday.

MyFoxAtlanta reports the arrest was made after a traffic stop where Dwight told the cop he didn’t have his driver’s license on him. The cop conducted a check and discovered Dwight’s license was suspended, after which Dwight was taken into custody.

Dwight’s license suspension came about when he failed to appear in court for a previous unresolved matter. He has a court date set for February.

One thing I love about the Kardashians is their unfailing ability to make anything — anything– news! Frankly, I’m surprised we don’t get a GoogleAlert everytime they pee! Wait — I shouldn’t give them any ideas…

Anyways, in the Kardashian news of the day RadarOnline reports that Khloe Kardashian Odom (a.k.a. the only tolerable one) is “thrilled” to be escaping Kimmie Kakes and pimpmomma Kris Jenner with her upcoming move to Dallas for husband Lamar Odom‘s basketball career!

“Khloe is eager to get out of the constant media spotlight that comes with living in Los Angeles. Dallas has welcomed her and Lamar with open arms, and she is embracing this as an adventure,” Khloe a source close to the couple explains. “Khloe has been telling her closest friends that she is thrilled about the move because she will be getting away from the constant family drama.”

The constant dramz as of late has been caused, of course, by Kimmie behaving completely selfishly following her heart and filing for divorce from Kris Humphries after a mere $17M profit and 72-days of marriage. Gotta love that Kim!

Reports have stated that Kim has been taking out her frustrations over being lambasted by the public heartbreak on Khloe which has caused the two to fight. “Kim and Khloe had been feuding up until November, but the two have since made up. However, Khloe is still extremely hurt that Kim called her an evil troll during an episode of Kourtney and Kim Take New York.”

“Khloe loves her family, but there is just always a situation where one family member is mad at another. She is embracing this move in a big way,” the friend admits.

Khloe is so excited about the move she has already started house hunting in Dallas. “Khloe will be going back and forth between L.A. and Dallas getting their households coordinated. Khloe will be spending Christmas Day with her hubby in Dallas as his team plays the Miami Heat,” the source continues. “Khloe and Lamar have a rock solid marriage, and they spend as much time as possible together, they are very much in love.”

Another reason Khloe is so excited about the move is because she is hopeful that a more relaxed lifestyle will increase her chances of conceiving. “Khloe has told Lamar that leading a calmer life in Dallas will help her get and stay pregnant,” the friend reveals.

In other Kardashian news apparently their Kardashian Kollection for Sears isn’t selling! According to MSN Money Sears erroneously bet on the Kardashian Kollection “stirring up consumer excitement” only to be rewarded with dismal sales and a lot of clearance racks boasting the products. Oops.

“Sears was betting the Kardashian name and collection of fashion products would stir up consumer excitement,” Unfortunately even on Black Friday sales were very low! Sears, which has consistently had negative earnings, “posting losses in every quarter so far this year,” failed to see a profit and the highly anticipated Kardashian Kollection did little to boost revenue for the struggling chain.

Marija Dabovic, a retail industry analyst for investment research firm Value Line, claims that “Sears Holdings has yet to see meaningful improvement,” after relying on the fame of Kim and ko. to deliver with their collection that offers “almost every product that women would want.” Including some blatant knock-offs!

Unfortunately, the kollection has been besieged by troubles including Sears being forced to pull certain products for copyright infringement. The biggest issue likely stems from the Kardashians recent fall from grace!

Sears launched the Kardashian Kollection right before Kim’s Fairytale Wedding when the family was right in the midst of a media frenzy over the event and generating tons of fan excitement. Sadly, I’m sure Sears wasn’t anticipating Kim’s Nightmare Divorce three-months later, which caused a media and public backlash.

Unfortunately the department store chain has already invested big on “initiatives” that have not been “effective” which is industry speak for getting burned by the Kardashians and there is little they can do to recover their losses if the klothes don’t sell. Well, what were they expecting with leopard-print jumpsuits?
