Teen Mom star Maci Bookout is starting to have second thoughts about doing the popular MTV show according to a new interview with Life & Style magazine.

The reason? Maci, 19, worries about how the show is affecting her 2-year-old son Bentley Edwards. “I don’t want to steal his childhood,” says Maci who is worried about Bentley growing up under a harsh media microscope. “I don’t know if being on TV in elementary school would be difficult for him. I want him to have a normal life.”

Maci, who reportedly earns $60,000 per season, however adds that choosing to walk away from the fame show would be a very difficult decision because it has allowed her to provide for her son. “Without the show, I would have had to have a full-time job and be in school full-time, and I’d rarely get to spend time with Bentley,” Maci says. “It’s been difficult, but it’s also been a big blessing.”

As for the moment, Maci assures us Bentley’s not being affected by the show in any negative way. “He actually enjoys it,” she confesses. “Bentley thinks it’s cool to watch himself on TV and to have cameras around.”

In other Teen Mom news, Catelynn Lowell, you know, the one that sort of has it together and therefore no one really talks about her, is making recent headlines. The reason? It all has to do with an eviction.

According to TMZ Catelynn and her boyfriend Tyler Baltierra, who were shown moving into their 1st apartment together on the MTV show, were evicted from the same apartment for failing to pay rent! The 19-year-olds signed a lease on the apartment in Marine City, Michigan, in August, 2010 with court documents showing they stopped paying rent in December, 2010.

This caused their landlord to give them an eviction notice while also taking them to court. The landlord ending up winning big as the two had to give up their $450.00 security deposit, in addition to paying an additional $450 in back rent and moving out of the building.

The two of course did what any other 19-year-olds would do by taking to their twitter pages to give their side. “The landlord was an idiot and didn’t fix anything I payed [sic] every month that I lived there,” Catelynn tweeted. Tyler added, “Ok everyone I did not get evicted, I left bcuz the landlord was a lazy unprofessional man of business, and I refuse to put with it FYI.” Guess we’ll have to wait and see if the eviction drama makes the show.

A new episode of Teen Mom airs tonight on MTV at 10/9c.

After years of struggling to have a baby, Giuliana Rancic and hubby Bill Rancic are now revealing they are looking into other options.

“We’re looking at all of our options when it comes to children, whether it’s surrogacy or adoption,” Bill, 40, said to UsWeekly. “We’re going to keep trying ourselves, but if it doesn’t work out, there are so many other great alternatives. We’re open to everything,” added Giuliana, 35.

In fact during an appearance on the Chelsea Lately show last week, Giuliana and Bill revealed they were looking into adopting an “underprivileged kid” from Giuliana’s hometown of Naples, Italy.

The couple has suffered heartbreak in their struggle to become parents as Giuliana opened up last year about her miscarriage. The Giuliana & Bill stars, who wed in September 2007, however promise the new season of their reality show will focus less on their quest to start a family.

“We went through a really tough year trying to have a baby. We decided, you know what? We need some time off,” explained Giuliana — who once received 63 IVF shots a month. “Bill decided to have the year of fun and just focus on the positive.”

The 4th season of Giuliana & Bill airs Monday nights at 8 p.m. (EST) on the Style Network!

TELL US – OKAY OR TOO SOON FOR THE RANCICS TO BE THINKING ABOUT ADOPTING?


Last night’s episode of Real Housewives of New Jersey was all about Jesus’ Birthday and in the spirit of Christmas everyone got along except for the notorious Kim G. – who really is incapable of getting along with anyone so she got thrown out of Jesus’ Party by the Manzo’s – who don’t let no body mess with their family.

Things pick up where they left off at Jesus’ birthday party. Melissa lets Teresa know she “got that bitch outta there” meaning Monica Chacone, who was Kim G. ’s plus one for about five minutes until Melissa escorted her politely to the door. Teresa gives her brother and SIL props for handling it well, BUT she wants to know why Kim G. was invited in the first place? Melissa says Kim is harmless which ummm…. What?! Please re-watch season 2, Melissa! However, Melissa calls a spade a spade when she describes that Kim G. and Teresa are eerily similar – in fact, so similar they may be “secret sisters.”

Let the drama begin! The first part of the Real Housewives of New York City reunion airs tonight and judging from the previews, it’s an all out war between the ladies!

Following a season which was pretty much the Blondes vs. Brunettes, not much as changed between the castmates since filming ended months ago.

In the preview clip below, Ramona Singer and Countess LuAnn de Lesseps go at it over their verbal smack-down during a recent episode. Similar to the delusional and cra cra Kelly Bensimon, the Countess actually believes she is a nice person. Once again Andy Cohen is the voice of reason when he kindly lets her know she ain’t that nice.

The topic of Lulu’s marriage is brought up and shots are fired when Ramona accuses the Countess of having had an open marriage with her ex Count Alex de Lesseps! That would explain all the reports that have the Countess getting wasted in public and trying to make out with random strangers… in front of her then husband.

The reunion is super-sized tonight with the first part being 1 hour and 30 minutes long. It airs at 10/9c and immediately following that is a new episode of WWHL. The preview clip is below!

Meanwhile, Jill Zarin’s daughter Ally Shapiro was featured on a recent episode of the RHONY during which it was revealed she was transferring away from Sarah Lawrence College.

According to a new report by Crushable, Ally’s classmates at SLC are revealing why she might have wanted to leave the school while also painting a not so flattering picture of her. “She was standoffish,” one student told Crushable. “She thought she was famous, and nobody cared.”

A second student alleges that Ally was hospitalized earlier this year for alcohol poisoning and had to have her stomach pumped. Wowzers. “They tried to cover it up,” the student said, “but we all knew it was her.” The RHONY was filming then but of course this wasn’t made a part of the show a la the shocking video of LuAnn’s daughter Victoria that also hit the net during filming. A recent picture of Ally and Jill taken in June is below.

In today’s news, Bethenny Frankel continues to get richer expand her Skinnygirl line!

Just months after selling her Skinnygirl drink line for a reported $100 million, the Bethenny Ever After star has now announced her plans to launch a Skinnygirl skincare line… in addition to the Skinnygirl Cleanses, Skinnygirl Shapewear and Skinnygirl Books.

Bethenny, 40, announced the launch of Skinnygirl Face & Body Solutions and Skinnygirl Mommy on Friday. She joins forces with the beauty firm Lotta Luv for a 30-product body and skincare line called Honesty by Bethenny.

The reason for the name? Well it’s because Bethenny is not one for the gimmicks! “A $150 eye cream is ridiculous and absurd,” she told WWD. “[Promises like] ‘you’re going to look like Heidi Klum in two days’ or ‘like you had a face-lift’ have always bothered me.”

The products will range from lip glosses to body cream! The Honesty by Bethenny line is set to debut in select Wal-Mart stores in November 2011 and will retail for $15 and under. Not bad. Some of the products will reportedly feature spirit-inspired scents.

And in a recent interview with CNN, Bethenny makes it clear she isn’t just putting out these product lines to make money. “Any product that I add to the Skinnygirl line has to be innovative, solve a problem for women, and help them to live healthier, better lives,” she said. “My line is straightforward, honest, and doesn’t make false promises. I’ve turned down a multitude of product ideas from headbands to diet pills.”

She adds, “If I wouldn’t use a product myself, it doesn’t become part of the Skinnygirl brand.”

In other Bethenny news, she also continues to make it crystal clear that her reality TV days are numbered! “I’m getting tired of reality TV, of every moment being documented,” said Bethenny who has a talk show in the works. “But a talk show, where I could have longer conversations than on Facebook or Twitter – would be great. There are many things I want to talk to women about. While the other housewives were off getting drunk, I was doing business.”

The upcoming episode of Basketball Wives is shaping up to be the most dramatic of the season.

Last week Evelyn Lozada confronted long time friend Jennifer Williams about some things she said in a radio interview.  Tonight everything comes to a head as Tami breaks into Evelyn’s hotel room so that Jennifer and Evelyn can hopefully make amends. Also Tami and Meeka get into a fist fight which might have led to Meeka quitting the show. But more on that later!

As for that infamous radio interview, Jen is still defending what she said. She tells Hollywood Life, “[E]verything I said in that interview, I have said before and to her face in Season Two.” Jennifer also discusses Evelyn’s reaction to the interview, and how she wishes that Evelyn had confronted her first, instead of allowing the drama to fester.

Jen says, “I also feel like all the talks with Noe, Shaunie and Tami were unnecessary. I have known Evelyn for over a decade and if she has an issue with me she should have come straight to me. Talking to a bunch of people only instigates things and when Evelyn gets mad she just lets it build, instead of dealing with it right away in a calm manner.”

While she stands behind her statements, Jen hopes this drama will not be the end of her friendship with Evelyn. She continues, “I do want to say that as a friend I would never do anything intentional to hurt anyone’s feelings. Evelyn and I have been through a lot and hopefully we will make it over this hurdle as well.”

Moving on to Tami Roman and Meeka Claxton as they have had a rocky relationship (if you could even call it that) all season, and Tami has been making not so subtle digs at Meeka throughout the ladies’ Italian getaway. Those digs become blows this evening as the women get into a knock-down-drag-out brawl while out clubbing in Rome.

The fight has resulted in a lawsuit with Meeka suing her co-star for assault and battery. Tami responded on her twitter page, “I was unaware of this pending lawsuit until getting word from my publicist, to which I have no comment.” She later added, “I was defending myself-I didn’t attack her.” Guess we’ll have to see on tonight’s episode.

The TV Guide preview also states someone will quit the show tonight. All signs are pointing to Meeka! Wowzers. And finally, the reunion is taping today. Here’s to hoping Tami the ladies will keep their hands to themselves.

SHOULD EVELYN HAVE GONE TO JENNIFER FIRST? WHOSE SIDE ARE YOU ON REGARDING TAMI VERSUS MEEKA?

In today’s Bachelorette news, Ashley Hebert is actually admitting the obvious she did not make a good Bachelorette.

Ashley, who has been heavily criticized for being too insecure as well as for her decision to keep douchebag Bentley Williams on the show much longer than she should have, made the surprising revelation in a recent interview.

“I don’t know that I have made a good Bachelorette,” Ashley confesses to the Philadelphia Inquirer. “In a way, I think I’m too honest. If I’m not into somebody, I have a hard time faking it and I think in this environment, you have to be able to do that sometimes.” Yeah that’s the reason.

CLICK HERE TO FIND OUT WHO ASHLEY’S FIANCE IS!

As for the whole Bentley debacle, Ashley admits she was a bit jaded after having her heart broken. “Now I feel like I’m jaded,” she admits. “I think I’ve learned a lot about people, but it’s kind of a sad thing.”

Ashley also goes on to deny that she is insecure! Err is she watching the same show we’re watching? “Despite what people believe, I’m actually pretty secure in myself,” she explains. “There’s a lot of good things happening too. You don’t see much of that. You only see what sucks people in.”

Meanwhile, with Ashley’s sucky season of the Bachelorette winding down, there is now a ton of speculation on who will be the next Bachelor! The front-runner? None other than Ryan Park who will be making a “shocking” return to the show tonight to try to win back Ashley.

Bachelor insider Reality Steve however tells Life & Style magazine that Ryan’s return is really to position himself to become the next Bachelor a la Jake Pavelka.

“Ryan goes back to Fiji to try to win Ashley back [during the July 25 episode],” said RS. “Producers probably told him that by going back, he would have a good chance to be the next Bachelor.”

Three guys remain on the show with a new episode airing tonight on ABC at 8/7c. Ashley will narrow down the contestants to the final two!

TELL US – DO YOU AGREE WITH ASHLEY? DID SHE MAKE A BAD BACHELORETTE? DO YOU WANT TO SEE RYAN AS THE NEXT BACHELOR?
