Following yesterday’s report that Taylor Armstrong will be “phased out” of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, the reality trainwreck star is freaking out. Even worse, Taylor allegedly found out about Bravo’s plan to gradually remove her from the cast from reading the tabloids! Oops—that’s gotta sting!

Upon hearing the gossip, Taylor immediately got on the phone to Bravo producers for reassurance, only to be told that the rumor was kinda true! “Taylor called because she was certain that there was no way that she was going to be phased out,” a source close to the reality star reveals to RadarOnline. “However, when she spoke with the higher ups they didn’t deny that she would be featured on the show in a much more limited capacity with a much smaller role.”

The news is devastating to Taylor, who is under contract for another year and will not be eligible to secure any other TV deals until released! “Taylor now knows that her days on the show are numbered. She is extremely upset because she just signed a contract extension for season three, but she wasn’t made aware of Bravo’s plans for her. She absolutely freaked out because she counts on the show as her primary source of income and uses it as a platform to secure other endorsement deals.” Uh-oh!

Moving on, Adrienne Maloof and her family are again threatening to move their NBA team, the Saramento Kings. If you recall, last season Adrienne was shown attending what could possibly be the final game at the King’s Sacramento stadium, and was faced with protests from local residents. Adrienne announced that upon learning how much the team meant to the community they had decided not to relocate the team.

However, a year later, things have changed. According to the NY Times, the outdated arena remains a problem for the team owners, and the family is hinting that the team’s days in the city are numbered. Yesterday, the Maloof family hosted a press conference in which they detailed plans to relocate the team, because a soluble agreement with the city could not be reached.

Apparently, in October of last year, the family reached a “handshake deal” with Sacramento Mayor, Kevin Johnson, agreeing to financial terms for the new arena; but the deal is no longer sufficient. The Maloofs would like the deal renegotiated and they would like to see progress to substantiate the agreement, but the city is not prepared to make changes or agree to a proposed renovation of the exiting arena. Other areas of contention include the lease agreement for the new facility, naming rights, arena design, and responsibility of game-day expenses.

The Maloof family also objects to the city’s request for a financial contribution of an additional $3.2 million towards the project when they were already expected to shell-out $73M. The NBA was prepared to loan the family $67 M and give them an additional $7M for the construction with the city kicking in $255M. Sheesh—that’s one hell of an outrageously expensive basketball court! Maybe they can borrow the court at the local YMCA?

“If [Mayor Kevin Johnson] says he’s not negotiating, then he killed the deal,” Adrienne’s brother, George Maloof, said in a press conference yesterday. “It’s over.”

Since the deal was non-binding, the Maloofs have every right to back out and begin looking for a new location for the team as the move is apparently imminent.

THOUGHTS ON LATEST IN THE RHOBH CASTING DRAMA? DO YOU BELIEVE THE NEWS THAT TAYLOR WILL BE “PHASED OUT”? IS IT A MISTAKE FOR THE MALOOF’S TO MOVE THEIR NBA TEAM?

Yesterday, the cast members of Basketball Wives put in their two cents about Evelyn Lozada’s bottle and plate throwing tirade, and now Evelyn is weighing in.

The hot-tempered Evelyn spoke with Radar Online about the bottle smashing incident. She’s regretful…to a point.

“I do regret throwing the bottle, Shaunie (O’Neal) was there, and her or one of my castmates could have been hurt. Things went too far and I will definitely apologize for that. I would have felt bad if Kenya had been hurt, she’s a mom with two children, so God forbid if she’d have been hurt, and I could have gone to jail! My anger got the best of me with that.”

Evelyn feels that Kenya Bell was busy trying to stir up drama to keep her place on the show. “There were a lot of things going on while the cameras were off as well as on. She was always stirring the pot behind the scenes and saying things to producers to be relevant on the show.” Um, isn’t that what they ALL do?

Evelyn accuses Kenya of not being real. “It is hard for me to respect you when you are coming in and not being yourself. Her personality changes with whichever cast member she is with at the time filming.”

Things haven’t gotten any better between the two. “It is a strange relationship there, I don’t say friendship because we’re not friends.”

She says of the season finale: “I think people will be surprised who remains friends at the end of the season, there are definitely a few shocks. There are people who you think are solid and who are no longer friends, there are definitely friendships that don’t last, aside from mine with Jennifer.”

How does anyone stay friends with a hot head like that? I don’t find fearing for my safety an endearing quality in a BFF—you? They all need an anger management intervention!

Despite the continued scrutiny about who’s in and who’s out concerning the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, apparently, the ladies have returned to work and started filming season three. Didn’t season two just end yesterday?

“The ladies have started filming,” an insider tells WetPaint. “And yes–all the main women Lisa [Vanderpump], Kyle [Richards], Kim [Richards], Adrienne [Maloof], and Taylor [Armstrong]–are back.” The insider also reveals that viewers likely haven’t seen the last of Camille Grammer, who may make a brief appearance, along with Dana Wilkey who will also not return. “Both women could make cameo appearances during the season. Say, during a party scene or something like that. But they will not be back in a major way.”

No word on Brandi Glanville‘s prospective status, although, rumors have circulated that Kim and Kyle refused to sign on if Brandi was included in the cast (cause they’re like so mature like that); which led to Lisa seriously reconsidering her involvement in the show.

As for what viewers can expect this season–lots more of Kim and Kyle’s nonsense to be sure! And continued tension between Lisa and Adrienne. We’ll also see Adrienne expanding her Maloof Hoof shoe line. Which is funny, because the gorgeous specimens were recently spotted on clearance! Guess nobody likes a fat, cheap-looking little knock-off!

Additionally, things will be a lot more upbeat and fun this season. “Last year, things with Taylor were very intense and got very dark,” the source continues . “I think everyone wants to see the show wants to get away from that so Taylor can continue recovering from the tragedy and focus on raising her daughter.”

One thing is certain, the drama will be complemented by glamour, wealth, and chaos! “At the end of the day, the reason this is one of the most successful of the Bravo franchises is because these women are fabulous and they know how to really bring the drama. That’s not going to change one bit.”

And now onto the Taylor subject. According to Wetpaint, Loony Lips is, indeed, returning to the series and her focus will be milking her fifteen minutes for all it’s worth recovery. However, RadarOnline is now reporting that the infamous Ms. Armstrong’s days with Bravo are indeed numbered!

On Tuesday’s episode of Real Housewives of Orange County, viewers were reminded of how delusional Alexis Bellino is with her Katie Kourig-ing, and why they don’t like Jim Bellino one bit! Well, now the Bible thumping couple is speaking out in defense of their marriage and insisting they’re right with each other and the teachings of Jesus.

Taking to his own blog, created purely to dispel the myth of Bravo editing (which is why he supposedly stopped appearing on the show in the first place), Jim explains that his marriage is actually very balanced and supportive.

“This dinner was more than two hours long, but what viewers will see is a two-minute segment put together for TV that doesn’t really show you the in-depth conversation and the detailed discourse that was had,” Jim begins. Adding that while he is “no theologian” the bible evokes that “a husband and wife shall be like-minded in life’s journey.”

“As the head of the household, I know that ultimately it is my responsibility to ensure that balance is always a priority, and that’s exactly what I was thinking about during my dinner with Alexis.” (Bolded By Jim for dramatic effect!). And Jim says his scrutiny over Alexis’ schedule was purely out of concern for her happiness.

“If you looked up one morning to find that your wife had three jobs and was running two companies, would you not want to address it with her, out of concern that she may become overwhelmed?;” he wonders. “Alexis is her own person, and I am not married to her to decide what challenges she takes up—I am here as her partner in marriage and in life to remind her of the big picture, just as she does for me.”

Does anyone remember Tareq Salahi? One-half of the infamous White House-crashing, Bravo grifters? And remember when his wife, former Real Housewives of DC trainwreck, Michaele Salahi, ran off with Journey guitarist Neal Schon? And Tareq reported her missing to TMZ? And remember when Tareq tried to auction off Micahele’s underwear? And then he said Michaele’s disappearance had killed his dog and sabotaged his career, so he wanted them to give him $17 million dollars? And then he spent every single day giving a certain media site exclusives–like the time Neal supposedly emailed him a photo of his penis just to torment him? And then she accused him of abuse? And they filed for divorce from each other? Then, remember when Tareq sued Neal for $50 Million dollars, claiming he ruined his life? And we all laughed?

Yeah… Well, apparently, a judge agrees with the rest of the world about how completely absurd, ridiculous, and stupid that so-called lawsuit is, because according to E! News Warren County, VA Circuit Court Judge Dennis Hupop ruled that the lawsuit (which Tareq appropriately filed on Valentine’s Day) is “not legally sufficient.”

Oops, well that’s unfortunate! I guess Tareq’s latest scheme just didn’t pan out… I’m sure there’s plenty more to come…

WAS TAREQ’S LAWSUIT BASELESS? WHAT DO YOU THINK HE’LL TRY NEXT?

It’s time to untangle the mess that is going on at Basketball Wives. It’s time to call in Colin Powell, because this kind of mess needs some kind of professional mediation. How else can you explain a grown woman like Evelyn Lozada throwing bottles (okay, just one bottle but that’s one too many) around? Naturally, all the women had to put their two (or three or four of five) cents into the issue. Let’s dig in and see if we can explain what is going on here.

First up, Royce Reed and her 3,000 word blog post. She breaks down the incident like this:

“I said it last week and I was right. Instead of expressing how WRONG Evelyn was for throwing a bottle and a plate at someone’s head for a “word” there was a lot of laughing. Even more so, they condoned her actions. I’m confused…how are you speaking about someone else being crazy (although I think Kenya has a “side”) when you are always the one picking up glasses, bottles, plates, jumping across tables, etc. Pot MEET Kettle. Tami and Shaunie, you both knew Evelyn was wrong so rather than saying “Evelyn you would’ve killed that girl,” hence hyping Evelyn up, it should’ve been “You were dead ass wrong and you need to learn how to curb your anger and deal with things differently.” I love you Tami and I know you are upset with me, but at this point I don’t think you understand the fact I AM a real friend to you. No way would I let you react the way Evelyn has in my presence, nor would I condone it.”

People throwing plates around is always hilarious. It’s pure comedy. The next big incident is the backlash Royce received for, uh, not throwing a plate at Jennifer when they realized Jennifer had been talking trash about her online a million years ago.  Royce says that she and Jen are now “cool,” but not friends; which is kind of like loving someone, but not being in love with them. She says she’s open to being friends with Jennifer, because she’s “not naive but also not evil.” Can anyone on BBW really not be evil?

And then, video gate! Kenya Bell showed off her new video, and Royce stands behind her artistic critique. “Like I said it wasn’t THAT BAD but speaking on the genre I know about, the dancing needed/needs to be done over. Kenya CAN SING. Kenya CAN NOT DANCE.”

Also weighing in on Kenya’s video, is Tami Roman, in her own blog, letting Kenya know “she can really sing” and that “she’s seen worse.” How sweet of Tami to take time off from cackling with another wife and give someone a compliment. She also lets Kenya know how she feels about the hazing she’s received since joining the cast:

“I’ll keep it real with you, when I came into this situation, I was tore back. I had gotten to a point in my life where I didn’t care anymore, but as I became more involved in the show, I returned to the Tami I had always been before my downfall, my marriage and The Real World. I never try to be anyone else except myself. I want you to continue to be Kenya Bell-find yourself and make YOU better. I do respect you as a woman out here grinding and truly hope the best for you.”

Tami also added in her thoughts on Royce and Jennifer “making up,” but she just re-affirms what Royce said about the two not being real friends: “This relationship is forced, at best. There will be no hanging together outside of the show; no texts, no phone conversations, and no real steps towards friendship and thus…they really didn’t need to make up.” When you’re on a show where bottles are thrown, you kinda need to call a truce if necessary. But that’s just me.

Jersey Shore star Pauly D’s GTL routine today = gym, tan, lawsuit. Pauly D’s former talent agency, ICM, is suing him for their cut of his salary.

Pauly dropped the agency and moved over to WME, but ICM claims that Pauly still owes them their ten percent–$370,000–for the past two season of the show.

The lawsuit isn’t shocking; it happens all the time in Hollywood. But what is shocking to me, is how much the cast is making! In two seasons, Pauly raked in almost $4 million between his salary, bonuses and other merchandising.

This is why I got a little bored with Jersey Shore after the first two seasons. At first, it was fun because they were these broke roommates taking jobs at random shops down the Shore. Their popularity skyrocketed and suddenly they were raking in HUGE money for appearances and got hefty raises from MTV. After that, I had a hard time buying into this “regular working class” party house at the shore premise, knowing they were actually making millions.

In other Shore news, recently rehabbed housemate, The Situation, is being encouraged to bring along a sober coach when he returns to Seaside next season!

A source shared with Radar Online that “doctors at Cirque Lodge advised him that he should have a sober living companion with him at all times when he is in Seaside Heights. The sober living companion would have to move into the Shore house along with the other cast members. The companion wouldn’t need, nor want to appear on camera, but putting Mike back into that world without a strong support system around him is asking for trouble. Mike doesn’t think he needs someone to be with him and essentially be a babysitter, and this has his doctors extremely concerned for his sobriety and recovery.”

I’m almost disappointed that the sober coach most likely will not appear on the show. The storyline possibilities are endless! MTV’s scriptwriters producers should rethink that one!

In all seriousness, I’m curious to see how this plays out once filming starts. Will MTV make light of his sobriety attempt and turn into drama for the show? Or will they take the high road and truly try to help him stay clean?

In other MTV news, I’m heading up a letter writing campaign. MTV has scarred me for life and ruined my beloved ‘Titanic’. Take a look at the nude Situation below. As a friend, I’m warning you: You can’t unsee it once you’ve pressed play!
