A “good friend” opened up this week about Jenelle’s troubled past and claims that Jenelle would use cutting as a way to deal with her inner turmoil. So, naturally the concerned friend ran the media to sell the story. And instead of doing it anonymously, she shared her name and even did a video interview for Radar Online. With friends like that….
Tori Rhyne claims that Jenelle would often use razors and scissors to cut herself to deal with the family drama going on around her. “They’re all crazy. It just messed with her head.”
She continued: “Sometimes you [could] see the blood and stuff.” “I would actually slap her cuts that she had on her wrist. I know when I did that it was gonna hurt her a little bit.”
So if this was in the past and Jenelle is supposedly turning her life around, why speak out on it now? We have drug use claims and cutting claims. Does it seem like people are trying to sabotage her chances of getting Jace back?
TELL US – DO YOU THINK THESE GIRLS HAVE ANY FRIENDS WHO WOULDN’T SELL THEM OUT FOR A FEW BUCKS OR FIFTEEN MINUTES OF FAME? DO YOU THINK MTV SHOULD INCLUDE FREE THERAPY IN THE TEEN MOM CONTRACTS?
I hope you heard me choking with sarcasm as I typed the words “classy”, “Heidi Montag” and “album” together in one post title.
She’s baaack. Heidi Montag cashed in her change jar or traded some crystals to pay for time in the studio and released her second album last week. She “graces” the cover of Dreams Come True with all of her plastic parts hanging out in a slinky pink…um..dress? swimsuit? nighty? I’m not really sure what it’s supposed to be.
Heidi’s new album dropped last week. No word on whether or not she sold more than 1,000 copies this time around.
It seems the most homogeneous dating pool in America will soon get a wake-up call! Shortly after Lamar Hurdstarted a campaign to become the first black Bachelor in the franchise history, two other African-American men have decided to file a class action lawsuit against the show for discrimination!
According to TMZ, the two plaintiffs attended a casting call in a Nashville Hotel to audition to be the next Bachelor. Christopher Johnson, one of those men—who also happens to be an aspiring NFL player—claims when he arrived the producers asked him why he was there.
Apparently, that’s when the discrimination began. Christopher and another African-American applicant, Nathaniel Claybrooks, claim they were then taken to the side of the room and excluded from the normal audition process. Neither man received a call back and both believe it is because of their race!
In response, they have filed a class action lawsuit today in federal court against ABC, Warner Horizon Television, Next Entertainment, NZK Productions and creator Mike Fleiss. More details will be coming this afternoon and Reality Tea will keep you posted on the developments.
In other news, Ben Flajnik and Courtney Robertson continue their campaign to convince people they are in love. Hey, getting married following The Bachelor comes with a hefty reward – lifetime infamy! And likely some monetary pay-offs as well.
According to HollywoodLife, the couple is madly in love and will be walking down the aisle sooner than we think! “Courtney and Ben are getting married! They have totally rekindled their feelings for each other on an even deeper level,” Courtney’s friend reveals. “The drama that happened after the show actually brought them closer together and they both realized that they didn’t want to lose each other. Courtney has even been looking at wedding dresses.”
Indeed, the two were spotted at Mark Zunino’s recent wedding dress fashion show – which of course totally proves this wedding is happening, like tomorrow, and not that the couple is pretending to be in love for fame and publicity as some reports have claimed.
“They sat in the front row and were holding hands the entire time,” Courtney a friend reveals to HollywoodLife. “They looked really happy and very much in love. During the show, Ben played with Courtney’s hair and she was giggling and pointing to the different wedding dresses.” Apparently, when and if she weds, Courtney will be sporting a Mark Zunino gown. Ok, then.
And finally, with Emily Maynard‘s season of The Bachelorette premiering next month, ABC has released the first glimpse of her portrait. PEOPLE got the exclusive. Emily looks stunning, of course, and is obviously holding a bunch of roses! The portrait is below!
The Bachelorette premieres May 14th at 8:30/9:30 EST on ABC.
IS THE LAWSUIT AGAINST ABC AND THE BACHELOR VALID? DOES THE SHOW DISCRIMINATE? WILL COURTNEY & BEN GET MARRIED – OR ARE THEY IN LOVE WITH PUBLICITY?

Are you ready for more mustaches, diamond water, taser guns, parties and cat fighting? Bravo just announced that it has officially renewed Shahs of Sunset for a second season!
The news isn’t too shocking since the ratings were increasing with each one of the six episodes. The season finale was the most watched, with 1.5 million viewers, which was a 20% increase over the previous week’s show.
The elimination would take like 3.5 minutes if they cut out the six musical guests and stopped showing us twelve more times what we already saw the night before. But, I guess that’d be pretty boring and pointless, right?
Tonight we saw musical performances by Train, Selena Gomez & the Scene, and Sheila E. Then we had a lot of build up to the dance duel, which wound up beingJaleel White and Kym Johnson versus Gavin DeGraw and Karina Smirnoff.
The couples squared off over the cha cha. Jaleel and Kym thankfully changed out of their costumes from last night, but I’m not so sure it was an upgrade in Kym’s case. She was one hip shake away from a wardrobe malfunction.
After the dance duel (which was chaotic to watch), the judges unanimously decide to save Jaleel and Kym and say goodbye to Gavin and Karina.
Gavin took the news gracefully, saying “It’s amazing just being part of the show. Knowing Karina Smirnoff, of course, having a great mentor. And getting to reach out and know all these amazing people who are a part of this show.”
We have Motown to look forward to next week! We have just eight couples left:
Katherine Jenkins & Mark Ballas
Jaleel White & Kym Johnson
William Levy & Cheryl Burke
Gladys Knight & Tristan MacManus
Roshon Fegan & Chelsie Hightower
Maria Menounos & Derek Hough
Donald Driver & Peta Murgatroyd
Melissa Gilbert & Maksim Chmerkovskiy
TELL US – WERE YOU SURPRISED TO SEE GAVIN AND KARINA GO? WHO DO YOU PREDICT WILL BE NEXT?
If you think we are done discussing the asinine bowling alley fight from last week’s episode of Real Housewives of Orange County, we aren’t. And if you think that Heather Dubrowis ever going to live down her comments that the Orange County dining scene is not to her liking (too many carbs, maybe?), you’re wrong about that, too.
Heather has dared the viewers to give her better suggestions, and then she’ll eat anything you ask: “With YOUR help, I intend to seek out and review local restaurants in an attempt to find the little gems that we have here that I have not been introduced to. SHOW ME. Then, I will eat CROW… or pig’s feet, tripe, sweetbreads or whatever it is the restaurant specializes in.”
Heather insists Sarah Winchester wasn’t even supposed to be there. In her blog, she writes, “First of all: for the record I did not invite Sarah to the party.”
That’s probably true. The producers invited Sarah, who probably thought she would bring more to the table. I get the impression the producers are trying to make this show younger since the whole “cougar” trend is kinda done. Anyway, Sarah did go, got totally trashed and followed Vicki Gunvalson around. Vicki needs to take a lesson from Camille Grammar and go hide in the bathroom in these moments.
In Heather’s words:
Sarah puts a nuclear hit on the evening! She is yelling at Vicki for NO reason and then is hugely delusional about how she approached her. I tried to diffuse the situation . She wouldn’t listen to me or her boyfriend or Gretchen. This girl is nuts. I may need to screen Gretchen’s friends for her! She is too nice to be friends with such a “wackadoodle” as G would say!
I thought Vicki handled it very well. Sarah couldn’t let it go. She was on a hamster wheel going round and round and round.
Heather thinks Sarah has issues, ending her discussion about her with this: “I hope this opens Sarah’s eyes to the fact that she obviously has a problem. She needs to seek professional help.” Embarrassing yourself on television isn’t yet recognized by the DSM, but maybe Sarah can start.

Well, I managed to imbibe myself through another episode of Bethenny Ever After. It was more of the same with the marital drama and the non-stop product plugs. We’re in the mid-season slump here where the storylines get staid and the characters seem too cranky and the viewers are looking for a resolution and a change of pace. Bethenny Frankel and Jason Hoppy continue to miscommunicate in their marriage, and despite that, they are considering making Skinnygirl enterprises a family business. At least they’ll finally have something to talk about! And Gina returned and blessedly hasn’t changed a bit!
Things begin with Bethenny meeting with her interior decorator Brooke, to make furniture choices for the new apartment. It seems Brooke is a bigger drama queen than Bethenny as she starts to need Xanax at the thought of Julie Plake leaving. Perhaps, it’s because Julie is the only person who can reign in Bethenny.
Next, Bethenny heads to Beam HQ where she is helping to oversee brand direction. Bethenny explains that just because Beam bought her out—identity, soul and all—she’s still involved, because Skinnygirl is more than booze—it’s now BMI tests, and depends (for when your Skinnygirl cleanse causes a mishap), and screwdrivers and tampons and mascara and vibrators—and anything a girl could possibly want or need that can be made in the colors of red and white, and have a photo of Bethenny slapped on the front of it. Skinnygirl deodorant – you got it!
Then, they do a new cocktail flavor test. Bethenny eschews every flavor, but White Cranberry Cosmo, which they plan to unveil in Aspen by Christmas. Pressure! Poor underprivileged Bethenny is excited about the launch party because she grew up skiing and will get to snowboard for the first time in years. And guess what she’s wearing? A Skinnygirl snowboarding suit!
Next, Bethenny heads to the marble yard, where she has a huge multi-contractor meltdown over bathroom plans. She loves being the center of attention in all of this mess and lecturing people on not communicating. She also loves pretending she has no control, while playing the diplomat amongst the professional renovators, who are all just hoping for their chance at a Bravo show of their own. Outside, she prays to a statue that everyone will get along and her apartment will actually happen.
Jason and Jackie pay a visit to the jeweler who made Bethenny‘s wedding ring. After last year’s birthday meltdown (Birthdays by Bravo!) Jason is walking on eggshells and feels a lot of pressure to make this one perfect. He is thinking of getting the setting changed on her engagement ring, because after less than two years of marriage, Bethenny is unhappy with it. A skinnygirl is never satisfied! And think about what that says about your marriage, Jason! Even the jewelers were like, ‘uhhh… dude – really? Not a good sign!’
Ahhhhh… Kimye. By far the most annoying celebrity moniker and accompanying celebrity couple since Bennifer. Remember them? Right, I expect Kimye to end in about the same way. Broken engagement, huge drama, and non-stop tabloid coverage about how they’re still secretly in love with each other 45 years later. But who knows – they could end up as happy in love as Brangelina!
So, Kim Kardashian and Kanye West have been parading their famewhoring love everywhere imaginable. And, apparently, things are going swimmingly for the couple. So swimmingly, that Kimmie Kakes has already shackled one of Kanye’s little swimmers to her uterus! That’s right folks – Kim just may be knocked up! I could have said pregnant, but that doesn’t start with a K.
“Kim is worried she could be pregnant!;” a source dishes. According to Star Magazine (via their print edition) Kim was recently spotted leaving a LA medical building with a contemplative look on her face. She could you know, be getting birth control or an exam, but that’s not nearly exciting enough gossip. The news is apparently joyful for the barely dating couple, as Kim desperately wants to start a family. So, anyone else think this is a complete publicity stunt? This has Kris Jenner‘s grubby little fingerprints all over it…
However, Kim is worried Kanye isn’t as rich as he purports to be! And before she moves forward wants a forensic exam of his bank account. “She wants to make sure Kanye’s worth as much she thinks,” the insider says. And if his pockets are deep enough, Kim will “move forward with the relationship.”
Unfortunately, things aren’t all wine, roses, and baby showers for the couple as they’ve already started fighting over Kim’s most favorite thing in all the world – money! “Kim really loves Kanye, but she loves money just as much – if not more!;” an insider reveals to Star. “She’s hoping that in the end, she’ll get both.”
Just last week the couple got into their first fight and it was over The Keeping Up With The Kardashians star’s obsession with his bank account. Wow – sometimes music does contain premonitions! #golddigger. “Kim is obsessed with money and it was starting to irritate him how it’s all she can talk about.” And during a recent visit to F.A.O Schwarz, witnesses overheard Kim badgering Kanye about his income. “She kept asking him about his touring revenue, the properties he owns and his savings,” a source reports. “Kanye finally had to tell her to back off and chill out. He told her she has nothing to worry about.”
Allegedly, Kim has some serious ulterior motives for dating Kanye – she wants to be taken care of! “She wants the kind of money where she can fly on private jets for the rest of her life,” an insider shares. And Kim is well-aware that since her business is built around her butt, she better have some insurance! “She knows she may not be able to work forever, so she wants a man who can ensure that she will always have the kind of life she wants.” Well, she has to stay married first!
Of course this all adds fuel to the speculation that Kim is in fact pregnant and worried about planning for her child’s future, but Kanye isn’t concerned. And he is protected. “He’s no fool,” an insider close to the star reports. And he already has a pre-nup at the ready! In fact, Kanye’s stepmother Dr. Cheryl West, says the rapper is more than prepared for the Kardashians! “I would not want him to be dragged into any foolishness, ” she warms. “But if you know Kanye, he knows what he’s getting into!”
And Dr. West is happy her stepson may be settling down. Even if it is with Kim! “If they love each other and are committed, kids would be a blessing,” she adds.
As for baby names, my suggestions would be Kween or King. Which fulfills both the insane Kimye ego and the use of the letter K! I’ll be trademarking Kween just in case these two decide to use it. Ka-ching!
Despite Kim’s probe into his wallet, Kanye is totally “obsessed” with her and not only lavishing Kim with attention! “Kim really hasn’t ever had a guy be so obsessed with her,” a source tells HollywoodLife. “She almost doesn’t know how to handle how much Kanye likes her. She has never felt this loved and it makes her feel good.”
“Kim flies to New York all the time and Kanye is loaded so it’s not hard for them to see each other,” the source continues. “He flew her private to Paris for his fashion show last minute — he’ll do anything for Kim.” Well, it sounds like Kim is getting her wish – money and love! And possibly a baby too. Anyone else slightly afraid of the potential E! specials!?
Finally, just in case you haven’t heard, Novartis Consumer Health, the makers of Theraflu aren’t on board with Kimye – nor are they interested in endorsing Kanye’s ode to Kim! “We in no way endorse or approve of the references or use of the image and likeness of Theraflu in this manner,” A representative told TMZ.
The company isn’t demanding that Kanye re-title the song or anything, but the rapper decided to anyway! Kanye has changed the name to “Way Too Cold.”And the company wants the world to know, that despite not wanting to endorse the song, they had nothing to do with Kanye’s decision! “Novartis Consumer Health did not ask that the name be changed — that request would be way too cold.”
PREGNANT OR PUBLICITY STUNT? IS SHE AFTER KANYE FOR HIS MONEY? DOES THIS RELATIONSHIP HAVE A CHANGE? DO YOU CARE?
