According to a report by Radar Online, the person behind the twitter handle @Hardboiledpeggs, is a teenage girl from New Jersey. Even more disturbing, Taylor has a book signing scheduled for February 7 in NJ. Security has now been increased in light of the threats.
On Jan. 29, @Hardboiledpeggs tweeted: “See u on February 7 ill be there with a book and a rope so i can kidnap u,” to which Taylor responded by saying: “Don’t ever contact me again.” @Hardboiledpeggs went on to make more alarming threats against Taylor’s daughter Kennedy.
“This was taken very, very seriously. The death threats Taylor and her daughter received are from a teenage girl that lives in New Jersey. The teenager appears to suffer from mental health issues,” a law enforcement source tells Radar. “Taylor is extremely grateful to the FBI for identifying the culprit.”
The source adds, “It was disturbing for Taylor to find out that the girl lives in New Jersey, because of the specific threat she got in regards to her book signing in the Garden state on February 7.” Taylor’s tell all memoir Hiding from Reality: My Story of Love, Loss, and Finding the Courage Withingoes on sale Feb. 7.
And speaking of Taylor’s memoir, her sister-in-law a.k.a Russell Armstrong’syounger sister is once again speaking out against her, calling her a lying gold-digger over her tell all memoir!
Talking to the HollywoodLife blog today, Laurie Kelsoeisn’t buying Taylor’s claims that she is releasing the tell all, six months after Russell’s passing, to help inspire other abused women. Laurie believes Taylor’s motivation is all about money.
“Taylor never reached out to my family about writing a book. She’s a gold digger; that’s why she wrote the book,” says Laurie. “I don’t think Taylor took into consideration what [effect] a book like this would have on Russell’s children! Her decision to write this book was purely motivated by money, but she is pretending that it’s about helping other women. What about helping her own family?!”
Laurie adds that she is more upset over the damage being done to Russell’s reputation as he is no longer here to defend himself. “It’s the utmost disrespect…my mom is heartbroken. It’s such a disgrace and embarrassment,”says Laurie. “Even if what Taylor wrote is true, why does she have to come out with a book about my brother now, so soon?”
Moving on to Lisa Vanderpump, who’s spinoff show unfortunately is a no go. According to Radar Online, Bravo has decided to pass on Lisa’s show.
The proposed spinoff, which Lisa filmed a pilot for, was reportedly centered around the ins and outs of one of her restaurants. The show would have followed the chaos surrounding the restaurant, including both the lives of Lisa and her staff.
“Lisa was hoping to follow in the footsteps of New York housewife Bethenny Frankel who had her own successful spin-offs focusing on her wedding and new baby but the network decided not to pick up her show,” a source close to Bravo revealed. With Lisa’s spinoff out of the equation, a return for a RHOBH third season is all but certain!

Marlo, Marlo, Marlo… I’m almost afraid to write anything controversial about Ms. Marlo Hampton because she scares me a little bit. Anyways, last week Marlo showed viewers her true colors feisty side when she went head to head with Sheree Whitfield.
Among the cray-cray accusations flying back and forth between two ladies of questionable means was the suggestion that Marlo has an 80-year-old white sugar daddy and that Sheree has quite the reputation as a shop’n swapper, akaJill Zarin-ing the merchandise by wearing it with the tags on and then returning it!
Well, that got the blogosphere’s ears perked up and several people started investigating just who Ms. Hampton’s allegedly Big Poppas are! The blog Diary Of A Hollywood Street King got the scoop on Marlo’s relationship status, and was told by a source they consider reliable that Marlo is allegedly the mistress to none other than mogul, Atlanta dweller, and CNN founder Ted Turner! Ted, pictured below, while not quite 80, is actually a very dignified 73 – and he is very, very rich.
Now remember this is all alleged information and none of it is to be taken as fact. “Ted Turner was Marlo’s sugar daddy. My understanding is that Marlo is one of the reasons why Jane Fonda divorced Ted Turner,” the insider exposes. “Ted Turner is the ‘sponsor’ who financed the The Red Carpet Boutique Marlo had at the Perimeter mall in ATL. Marlo knows how to get money, she’s a true hustler.” Marlo owned a boutique? Please tell me one of you amazing readers has been there!
Following up on the story is Atlanta’s StraightFromTheA blog, who learned from one their readers that the Real Housewives of Atlanta star may have another source of, ahem… income, other than Ted. Allegedly, of course.
Apparently speculation is that Marlo was previously the girlfriend of a high-profile drug dealer from her days in Florida and this is where the majority of her money comes from. Prior to living in Atlanta, Marlo was breaking the law all over Florida, the results of which garnered her a whopping SEVEN arrests! Can’t say the girl just sat around!
“She was dating a drug dealer back in 95, initials WM,” the source explains. “They were living together, had an argument and she tried to have him arrested for battery. He moves out and moves in with another girl. Marlo comes back into the picture. Goes over to his house and attacks WM. He tries to have her arrested for battery.”
The source continues, “A few days after the altercation and trying to file charges on her, he gets investigated for various drug charges (he has prior convictions of selling drugs). Within the month he goes down- charged to the hilt.”
“Probably because of previous plea deals and probation he got slammed.” Marlo’s supposed ex-boyfriend is still incarcerated! After unceremoniously ending her relationship Marlo moved her money to Atlanta where she paid cash for her luxury townhome, which was shown in an episode from two weeks ago. If you recall Marlo had quite the extensive security system set up and if any of the above allegations are true, it would make sense why!
According to StraightFromTheA, a “well-informed source” told the her about the deal Marlo negotiated to purchase her home. Tax records show that the home was paid for in cash and Marlo owns it outright! Not too shabby.
Moving right along to that other accusation about Sheree’s activities at the return merchandise counter at Neiman Marcus, it seems she’s not the only one! As several readers pointed out, Marlo had a tag hanging off the back of her caftan during last week’s breakfast scene! Photos below!
StraightFromTheA got the scoop from one of her sources, who claims Marlo likes to visit the return counter as well! Perhaps she and Sheree can start going together. The insider also alleges that Marlo’s extensive collection of Louis Vuitton luggage was also on “loan” and she was seen storing all the tags “neatly” in an envelope, meaning she purchased them expressly for the trip. When Marlo was asked why she was keeping the tags, she told cast mates she likes to “catalog” her items by designer and year! Le sigh.
Moving right along, NeNe Leakes is apparently highly incensed at Sheree’s behavior towards her new friend. Taking to Twitter, NeNe decided to remind fans of what Sheree looked like beforeBob Whitfield came into the picture and supplied her with a new nose, as he purports. NeNe posted a “before” photo of Sheree and let’s just say she’s taken things down a notch.
Now I think Sheree looked fine before and she looks fine now, but there is most definitely a difference in her appearance! “Sheree’s old nose RT!!! <I remember,” NeNe ReTweeted. The photo is below.
NeNe is still working on Glee. as she made several Tweets about reprising her role and apparently she will also be branching out into the talk show market. NeNe Tweeted, “Great news: I’ve been asked 2 co-hosting on The Talk, next Wednesday & Thursday! This should b fun! Tune n,” she revealed.
And in other NeNe Leakes Takes Twitter activities, the star Tweeted about filming last night. “Just kicked @kingdomlos out my house! We finally finished shooting or did we LOL.” Kingdomlos is a the Twitter account for Carlos King – a RHOA producer! So what was NeNe shooting for Housewives?
Check out this TwitPic, below, and take a good look at what Ms. Leakes is wearing and see if its the shirt from her interview segments. It looks similar!

It’s back to the beach with the peeps of Jersey Shore. Last night, Vinny settles back into shore life, Snooki loses bladder control, and Mike is eerily nice.
Vinny has come back to the Mothership, which is awesome because it means no new roommates for the gang. Everyone heads out, but Rawn for one is leery that Mike is being nice. Like really nice. Scary nice. It is very strange. JWoww is upset that Roger has been MIA, while the Situation reveals that he wants to get a tattoo that says “Loyalty and Betrayal” since he knows so much about those two things. Ronnie thinks “Betrayal and Betrayal” would be more appropriate given Mike’s pension for stirring up dramz among the roommates while being anything but “loyal.”
No matter, let’s just go to Karma! Pauly D is thrilled to have his wing man Vinny back at the Shore. Snooki is thrilled to have all of her guido family back together. So thrilled, in fact, that she totally soils herself on the dance floor. I know when I have to pee…do you, dear readers? Luckily Snooki takes a Shore shower, which means she maybe washed her hands when she went to the bathroom. Who are these people?

Tamra Barney, a four season veteran of the reality show, is talking about what viewers can expect besides plastic surgery, bickering, and tanning!
Discussing her newly repaired relationship with former nemesis Gretchen Rossi, Tamra admits the show encouraged them to keep the drama high! “Well, as you know, there was a lot of outside input that led to our bad relationship. Then it just escalated,” Tamra explains to The B Plot.”It got to the point where we were verbally attacking each other for the sake of the show.”
“It just felt time to build a bridge and get over it. In the process of doing that, we’ve realized that we really like each other and we get along really well. We’ve become extremely close through this adventure.”
Surprisingly boyfriendsSlade Smiley and Eddie Judge have also buddied up and have bonded over bicycles! “They’ve become pretty close. They both cycle, so they ride on the weekends. The four of us go out on weekends, so it’s nice.”
Tamra has also connected with new Housewife Heather Dubrow, whom she describes as “too nice.” “I liked Heather the minute I met her,” Tamra shares. “I worried, however, that she wasn’t going to fit in with the group. I mean, she’s so nice, classy and elegant. We don’t run like that on the show we don’t run like that. Haha. I honestly thought she would run from us. ”
Tamra is excited about what viewers will see of her life this season and she promises no more porno-moments! “Eddie got very camera shy after that,” she says referring to the infamous bathtub bare-all. “There will be no more steamy scenes.” #thankyoulord.
“You see a lot of me finalizing my divorce and figuring out how to put my life back in order. Even though I don’t film with my kids, I talk about them also so people will see me try to raise three kids who have a difficult time with the divorce,” Tamra reveals. “I also start several new business, which includes a fitness studio and a wine of the month club.”
When asked about the stress of embarrassing herself on a reality show, Tamra confessed she turns to alcohol to cope. Oh, dear… “I drink a lot. Haha,” she jokes. “I think for me, I just try not to take it too seriously. I know that I say things that piss the girls off and they say things that piss me off, so I’ll be mad for an hour and then I’m over it. You have to be that way, or you’d go crazy.”
Viewers will also see Vicki Gunvalson going through her divorce from Donn Gunvalson, whom she was married to for close to twenty years! Speaking to the Chicago Sun Times, Vicki talks about her history with Donn and her experiences this season! “I never would have guessed it — that our marriage wouldn’t make it — when we started this seven years ago,” Vicki confesses.
Vicki and Donn met when they were both working at a hardware store, of all places. “He got a job with Home Depot, and they moved us out here [to California],” she describes. “We had no intentions of being on a TV show. It just sort of happened.” Surprisingly, Vicki admits the show contributed to her marital issues, blaming the time commitments and pressure for driving the couple apart. Vicki did not mention Donn’s recent cancer diagnosis though she tweeted about it days ago.
Vicki also claims this season has been a positive one for her and she is excited to have people meet her new deadbeat man Brooks Ayers. “This season, I’m in a much better place,” she says. “I’m becoming the person I feel like I was always meant to be.”
Regardless of their issues, all the ladies promise the drama is still at a maximum. “No matter where you put cameras, there’s going to be drama,” Vicki assures us. “It doesn’t really matter what state you’re in. I think we’ve proven it with this franchise.”
Surprisingly, Jeana Keough and Peggy Tanous will also be back for a couple episodes. “Jeana does come back, we pick up where we left off,” Tamra hints.
Vicki also posted a picture of herself with Jerry Springer on Facebook. I wonder if he will be hosting the next reunion! We could only hope…
Real Housewives Of Orange County premieres February 7th at 9/10c on Bravo.

Last night’s episode of Project Runway All Stars was all about fashion in the real world. The designers meet hostess Angela Lindvall in the park where she lets them know they will have thirty minutes to trawl the manicured grounds trying to rip people’s clothing off. Nope, this isn’t some sort of weird porno starring fashion vampires – it’s a clothes off your back/muse in the city challenge.
Here’s the deal: The designers have to find a muse in the park and use their clothes to create a whole new look. The clothing the designers amass must be used as the material for at least 50% of their look. They have $150 to do whatever they’d like with – even buying clothes from people in order to source materials. Any leftover money can be spent at Mood.
Anthony instantly takes to this challenge like a southern girl takes to hairspray on prom night. I knew right away he was getting the dreaded “loser edit” and was sad. He uses his gregarious ways to collect an enormous amount of materials, sadly he went for quantity over quality and when he returned to the workroom he realized he had little to work with and lost focus. Anthony decided to use a woman wearing a polyester Brady Bunch shift as his muse, but the material was just so un-Anthony.

The 52-year-old breakout star of the season says, “I would like to have other surgery, like my eyes done and a slight face lift and my love handles removed by liposuction… I just need to get this liposuction fast around my bra and my backsides, and I’ll feel much better after that cause my age is kicking in.” Her sister even found her a doctor–on Facebook of all places!–who she will be consulting with this month.
No stranger to procedures, Big Ang confesses that her first foray into plastic surgery was in 1985.“I had a tummy tuck, liposuction, my lips injected and my breasts done three times,” Big Ang said. “The first time I had my breasts done was 27 years ago, and they put sponges in them. That was in 1985.”
Do what? In 2005 the sponges were replaced with saline implants, and then silicone implants were substituted for the saline a few years later.
Big Ang admits that she is done enhancing her chest, saying, “I’m good now, I have a 36 J and that is perfect. I think that when men look at me, they notice my height and my boobs. I am married to a 38-year-old and I am 52 and he is 6-foot-7.”
In other Mob Wives news, Renee Graziano’s father was recently subject to a sting. As she’s had a great deal of stress going on in her everyday life, this family drama can’t be helping. Nydailynews elaborates on the situation.
Anthony “TG” Graziano, a top Bonanno gangster who was secretly taped by his ex-son-in-law Hector “Junior” Pagan, was in a seemingly good mood at his recent arraignment when he pleaded not guilty to charges of extortion, the evidence of which was garnered from Junior’s taped conversations.
On Tuesday, the mobster, 71, waved to his daughter Lana and wife Veronica before greeting the Magistrate with “Good afternoon, ya honor.” He then asked Magistrate Marilyn Go, “Can you talk a little louder? I’m deaf in one ear.”
Go responded, “You look pretty good.” To which Graziano retorted, “What I got left.”
In November Graziano was arrested while living in a halfway house in Brooklyn as he was finishing out the sentence for a prior conviction. Additionally, he is named in an indictment against acting boss Vincent “Vinny TV” Badalamenti and capo Nicholas Santoro.
Patrick Parrotta, Graziano’s attorney gave an interview outside the courthouse, insisting everything was fine between the Graziano and his Mob Wives daughters. While Renee stars in the show, it is the brainchild of her sister Jennifer. Parrotta stated, “He does not hold what Hector did against his daughters.”
His lawyer further asserted that any animosity Graziano may have had about VH1′s hit show is in the past. “There’s no estrangement, everybody’s talking,” Parrotta said. Also, don’t expect to see Graziano pulling a Pagan any time soon. While he is currently in plea negotiations, his lawyer is adamant that he would never cooperate with the feds. Good to know!
Parrotta claims that he is unsure if the FBI directed Junior to go on the show in an effort to regain closeness with the Graziano family. Junior, who appeared in an episode filmed last summer, began wearing a wire last August.
Renee’s struggles with depression have been shown on the show, from her surgery-gone-so-wrong to her relationship with Junior and her father. Not to mention all her friends and co-starts are feuding. She recently tweeted the following earlier this week:
Like me, I am sure many of you are waiting with baited breath for the next installment of the drama. Unfortunately, we must be patient for yet another week. For some reason the Mob Wives don’t think they can compete with the Super Bowl. Thankfully there is a light at the end of our mafia tunnel, as Carla Facciolotweeted, “To all my #MOBWIVES fans we will not be on this Sunday!! :((( Enjoy the SUPERBOWL and we will be back next Sunday Feb 12th!!”
DO YOU THINK BIG ANG SHOULD HAVE MORE SURGERY? THOUGHTS ON TG’S ARRAIGNMENT? WAS JUNIOR USING RENEE TO GET TO HER FATHER?
More troubling news to report about another Teen Mom 2 star.
According to the latest issue of Star Magazine, 20-year-old Chelsea Houska, who has managed to remain relatively scandal-free if you ignore that troubled douche she calls a baby daddy, has a major pill-popping problem.
“Chelsea pops pills that aren’t prescribed to her and abuses the ones that are,” a source close to the MTV reality star tells Star. “She pops pills like I’ve never seen before.”
The source reveals Chelsea gets Ambien, which she is not prescribed, from a friend who offers the tablets freely. As if that isn’t bad enough, “Chelsea drinks every night,” the source adds of Chelsea mixing her pills with alcohol. “Sometimes she’ll take the pills while [daughter] Aubree is still awake. Then when Aubree goes to sleep, she’ll drink wine or whatever.”
The source also states that Chelsea’s pill popping is now having a negative effect on her daughter. “They can make her very impatient and frustrated with Aubree.”
Chelsea reportedly feels invisible about her alleged bad habits. “I’m sure she knows taking these pills and drinking is dangerous,” the source admits. “She just thinks that nothing is going to happen to her.”
Chelsea is of course denying the report, taking to her twitter to say “good thing outlets like @star_news (star mag)& @hollywoodlife have “accurate” sources that tell them false stories abt me, nice research work:/”

TELL US – THOUGHTS ON THE REPORT? DO YOU BELIEVE STAR OR CHELSEA?
Isn’t it fun when middle-aged ladies squabble like 8th grade girls on the playground? I remember those lovely days of junior high when you had no friends, only frienemies, because entertainment consisted of gossiping, bickering, and starting petty fights. Yes, I remember those days like it was yesterday… and sadly I get to relive them through the unnerving antics of the ladies of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.
It’s really not their faults; they’re bored, they’re rich, and they’re paid to act a fool, but something tells me SOME of these ladies would act like the eigth grade bully no matter how old they are. Maybe they just didn’t get their fill of it forty years ago. Yes, Kyle Richards and Adrienne Maloof; I’m talking about you!
It all started when a little bird known as Brandi Glanville insisted that Adrienne had gotten the girls of RHOBH together to develop a strategy for taking down the queen bee, one Lisa Vanderpump, at the reunion. They decided on a premeditated attack which included accusing Lisa selling stories to RadarOnline. Brandi claims she and Camille Grammer refused to participate in said behavior, and Brandi witnessed Lisa crying backstage at the reunion because of Kyle and Adrienne’s behavior!
Now whether you’re a Lisa fan or not, it’s pretty obvious that she steers this ship that is known as Housewives and it’s pretty obvious that some people want her job. I blame Andy Cohen‘s obsession with Giggy for Lisa’s rise to power. Anyone who watched Part One of the reunion knows Adrienne went ahead full-force, with Kyle jumping in right behind her, as the two jabbed at Lisa over the most inane of nonsense.
After Kyle learned what people thought of her behavior, she did what she does best – backpedal! Kyle insists no way, no how there was a pre-planned gang up on Lisa! Speaking to LynnNChicago, Kyle insists people have very vivid imaginations.
“I don’t usually respond to rumors but I had to address what Brandi said re planned attack on Lisa. That is 100% NOT TRUE!!,” Kyle declares. And she accuses Brandi of making the whole thing up! “Lisa is my friend and I care about her. We have had our moments like any friends. I have to wonder why Brandi would make that up.”
“On my children’s life, that never happened!,” Kyle asserts. “We would never do that to Lisa, can you imagine how hurt she would be? She’s my friend.” Kyle claims there was no discussion between the ladies prior to the reunion and no plan was put into place to take down Lisa. She calls what viewers perceived as an attack on Lisa as influenced by gossip.
“If you’re looking for it, then that is what you will see.” Kyle said. “When that’s what you have heard in advance, then you’re looking for it to happen.”
“You’re asked in-depth questions and you’re expected to answer,” Kyle explains. “I’m always honest, that is one thing you should know about me, I have always been truthful and I am an honest person.”
Trying to distance herself from the accusations that she was involved in any sort orchestrated front, Kyle calls Adrienne’s complaints about Lisa “petty.”
After learning that Kyle was denying her involvement, Brandi took to Twitter to again to reaffirm that a meeting was planned. “I never spoke to @KyleRichards18 I was asked to meet by Adrienne I didn’t go. Adriennes biz partner said they were going after Lisa! Simple!”
Moving right along, Kim Richards is out of rehab and doing great. And she is eager to return to work! Unfortunately Kim’s family and friends are desperately trying to persuade her to leave reality TV behind – even if it means they have to financially support her! Hey, Rick Hilton has enough money.
“The show has proved to be nothing but humiliating for her,” a source close to the family tells RadarOnline. “She hoped it would be a platform to resurrect her career but that has just not been the case, she comes off as an unstable train wreck.”
The source confirms what rumors have been speculating for months, that Bravo demanded Kim check into treatment or risk getting fired, because they “wanted to make sure nothing bad happens to anyone on their shows.” The source claims this was a response toRussell Armstrong‘s suicide and they were worried about Kim’s potential outcome after a season full of incredibly disconcerting behaviors.
And following her troubling behaviors, Kim is not reaping any of the benefits of starring in a popular reality show! “Kim was hoping it would be a good business move to be on the show, but has not received any lucrative offers like the other women,” the source adds.
Now that Kim’s life is back on track her family does not think she should concentrate on a reality show. “They don’t think it is a good idea, her personality is too fragile.”
“Even though it is her only source of income it just isn’t something they want her to do. Her family is willing to keep supporting financially no matter what,” the source alleges. DoesMauricio know about this plan?
And during the reunion where Kim talked openly about her addiction issues in a taped interview segment, sources say Kyle had a complete meltdown. Apparently the other Housewives believe Kim may not be interested in returning after seeing how she was portrayed this season. “They don’t know if Kim would come back for another season, they think she just might not,” the source says.
Finally, RadarOnline is reporting today that the FBI has identified the person making death threats to Taylor Armstrong via twitter. If you recall, Taylor received some very disturbing threats after a Twitter user threatened to both kidnap her and harm her daughter Kennedy.
However, a source tells Radar the culprit has been identified, adding that the public will be shocked at their identity. “The FBI has identified a suspect that made the threats, they know who it is. The suspect doesn’t live in California, and the public will be shocked to learn who it is. Taylor and Kennedy are safe and secure,” a source close to the situation states.
Interesting. Radar adds that a formal announcement about the suspect as well as what Taylor’s next step will be is expected later today or Friday.
