Reality Tea


If anyone watched It’s A Brad, Brad World last night you saw Brad Goreski, the former Rachel Zoe protege, going out on his own in the wilds of Hollywood styling.

Brad left Rachel last year and to hear her tell it he ditched her five minutes before the Oscars after stealing half of her client load and 3/4 of her couture department yet the newly independent Brad has his own version of how their split went.

Speaking to The Daily Beast, Brad discusses his new show and the departure from Zoe, Inc. “I think people will be surprised to see that when I left I didn’t have a ton of work,” he says of the first episode of his show where he is seen putzing around and searching for jobs — which is very different from Rachel’s styling oriented show The Rachel Zoe Project, filled with apparent manufactured drama. Brad says that’s about the most drama you’ll get from him, “I’m not a table-flipper,” he laughs.

Speaking of Rachel — just what went wrong between the former besties? According to Rachel, Brad told her he wanted to leave the high-paced styling world to live a quiet life with his boyfriend of ten-years, Gary, but then stabbed her in the back by immediately starting his own company and snagging his own show.

Brad’s side of the story is very different (and frankly sounds more plausible). Carefully explaining his perspective and maintaining that he wants to take the high road, Brad is aghast at how Rachel chose to demean him on TV. “I think it’s unfortunate that she decided to take the angle that she did because it’s not the truth.”

“It’s unfortunate that all of the time that I spent with her, and the many lengthy conversations that we had discussing my departure from working with her, that she would choose to character assassinate me on television.” Brad claims he gave Rachel two and a half months notice, trained his replacement (the invisible Jordan?) and even stayed longer to finish uncompleted jobs.

“I just think it’s unfortunate that she feels so competitive with me in a way,” he muses. “Because I left to create a name for myself – and not to ride on any of her coattails.” Brad wouldn’t say why he has been keeping mum about the dissolution of their relationship or if he signed a non-disclosure agreement with the company upon leaving, but he does want to clear his name that he isn’t a client or clothing stealer.

A similar thing happened with another of Rachel’s assistants, Taylor Jacobson, who claims she left the company amicably while Rachel and Rodger continue to slander her to the press and accuse her of stealing. Taylor, like Brad, never really spoke out about the realities of leaving, save to say it wasn’t how Rachel is construing things.

“She’s so incredibly successful, that a stylist starting out – I don’t know what kind of threat that is to her. Maybe she thinks I’m incredibly talented. Who knows,” Brad says of Rachel. Personally, I think she is jealous that Brad’s cheerful and fun personality took off with fans making him the more famous of the two.

“I did reach out to her numerous times, and there was never any response back,” Brad reveals, adding that they often are together at fashion shows and events, but Rachel ignores him. Mature, much?

As for Rachel’s allegations that he tried to steal some of her clients, Brad insists that is not the case. “That’s not the truth. And she knows that’s not the truth. I didn’t even say goodbye to a lot of her clients because I didn’t want anything to be misconstrued as me soliciting anybody.” Brad has styled former Rachel client Demi Moore, but claims Demi sought him out.

“Maybe one day we’ll be able to speak again, but if she chooses to not, then I guess that’s the way it has to be,” he explains. “People are saying, ‘What’s the problem?’ There is no problem from my side. I don’t have any problems with her.”

Rachel clearly does not agree because when asked for comments Rodger Berman (Rachel’s hubs) released the following statement: “Rachel and Rodger are amused by his convenient interpretation of events and have no additional comments.” Wow, Rachel needs to get over herself.

Regardless of the fallout, Brad is glad he got the opportunity. He says Rachel taught him that “it’s possible to do both styling and the show at the same time, but I learned so many more things from her about styling, and working in fashion, and being kind to people.”

And he is optimistic about the future. He is currently styling Christina Ricci and Rashida Jones, getting ready for awards season and he just signed a deal to work with Kate Spade!

WHAT DO YOU THINK OF THE BRAD VS. RACHEL SPLIT? WHO DO YOU BELIEVE? DID YOU WATCH IT’S A BRAD, BRAD WORLD? THOUGHTS?

Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Kyle Richards is now responding to reports which stated her sister Kim Richards planned to live with her upon release from rehab.

Late last week, reports came out that Kim had left rehab and was moving in Kyle for out patient care. It was later discovered that while Kim did attempt to leave rehab before the end of her 30 day mark, her loved ones convinced her to stay longer.

While talking to the Rumor Fix blog, Kyle made it clear that Kim, who has been living with her boyfriend Ken Blumenfeld, is moving into a new house once she leaves the Betty Ford Clinic. The rumor now is that Kim has broken up with boyfriend Ken who is said to be “controlling.”

“She won’t be living with me,” says Kyle, “We’re a little too old for that.” Kyle adds that her sister is, however, “doing really well.”

Sources tell the Rumor Fix blog that Kim has completed her 30 days in rehab, but the folks at the Betty Ford Center have recommended she stay for an additional 90 days of aftercare. Kim has reportedly agreed to stay at the facility until early February and will reevaluate things at that time.

A report came out days ago stating Kim was having a hard time in rehab and being defiant at times.

In other news, Kyle recently released her book titled — Life Is Not a Reality Show: Keeping It Real with the Housewife Who Does It All.

Unfortunately This isn’t a sordid tell-all as the book description promises Kyle will reveal “how she achieves that perfect mix of celebrity and normality. In this collection of the best tips, advice and strategies she knows, Kyle’s talking friend to friend so you can create that blend of glitz and know-how in your own life.”

Below is an excerpt from her book about infidelity –

“I know some people say that flirting can be totally innocent and harmless. I don’t agree. I believe that a relationship, especially after marriage, needs to be protected and sheltered from the outside forces that could potentially undermine it.

One incident, a single mistake, is one thing, but I would not tolerate a repeat offender.

A woman friend came to me once very upset, and she started crying because she did something with someone other than her husband. I took her hands and said, “Look at me. It did not happen. Do you understand me? Stop! It did not happen. You’re moving on and it didn’t happen. Because otherwise you’re going to ruin your life.” There’s no need to hurt the other person unless you’ve put him at risk and have a responsibility to let him know. Do what you need to do to acknowledge in yourself and to God what you did. Don’t forget it; just learn from it and try to move on. When you face conflict in your marriage, look at the bigger picture of what is valuable in your life and what you want to hang on to. That might mean forgiving your husband or yourself.”

So Kyle’s advice on infidelity is to not tell your partner? Interesting. Kyle also shares tips on her family, hair, men & her beauty in the book.

Moving on to tonight’s all new episode of the RHOBH. On the 17th episode this season titled Leis and Lies in Lanai, Taylor grapples with marital hardship as the other ladies fly to Hawaii for a sun-and-fun getaway. But there’s a nasty Hawaiian punch when Kim misses her flight. Worse, she misses her second flight as well.

The episode airs at 9/8c and a preview clip is below!

Guess what time it is!? Kim K time! The beleaguered reality star who simply has nothing to do but run around seeking attention had quite the eventful year — she got married, she got divorced, she got annihilated for supposedly making $17M off that whole shebang and, then, she discovered she was a whole new person by visiting Haiti to shop for charity. But we already know all that — let’s focus on 2012 — it’s a whole new year for Kimmie Kakes and a new year brings new attention seeking behavior!

Now that she doesn’t have her over-the-top marriage to make people interested in her, Kim is apparently looking to pull a Sandy B. and adopt a baby as a single woman. Yes, this is news. And no, I didn’t make it up.

In Touch Weekly is reporting that while Kim visited Haiti last month under the pretense of volunteering with We Advance, Maria Bello‘s charity, she also paid a special visit to a Haitian orphanage! “She wants to adopt a Haitian baby, and she wants to do it as soon as possible,” an insider reports adding that Kim thinks becoming a mommy will be the perfect way to fix her damaged reputation!

Kim apparently believes adopting will give her an “earth-mother” appeal that will endear her fans. I mean look how well it worked for Angelina Jolie! Kim’s friend claims, “She’s telling friends she wants to adopt because of the awful living conditions she saw in Haiti, but it’s pretty obvious she’s only doing it to revive her image.” This newest stunt apparently has friends jokingly calling Kim “Mother Theresa.”

Kim’s friend worries that the self-absorbed independent 31-year-old Kim who couldn’t even share a closet with her husband isn’t ready to assume mommy-duties. “The idea of dirty diapers makes her gag,” Kim’s pal snarks. “She’s not ready to have a baby at all — she’s so focused on herself,” a friend explains. “She’s even said that she’s too into her career to have a baby.”

Indeed, Kim had that same fight with then husband Kris Humphries on her reality show Kourtney and Kim Take New York. This begs the question — Is Kim really so delusional as to consider standing on the red carpet and whining on camera a real career?

Another friend points out that Kim’s supposed adoration of her nephew Mason, 2, is all staged for the cameras and that Kim is actually disinterested in the toddler. “Kim treats him like an accessory, not a baby.”

“She plays with him when she’s posing for pictures, but otherwise she’s always too busy texting to have anything to do with him,” a friend insists. None of this seems to matter to Kim, who believes a baby will save her image and leave the public viewing her as a kind, compassionate and loving person. Kim has a need to be loved the mag reports and seeks validation from the public.

Moving right along the new and improved Kim rang in the new year by hosting a New Year’s Eve party at Tao in Las Vegas! Kim reportedly received $600,000 to grace fans (who paid $200 a pop) with her presence at the popular night club. That $600k can feed a lot of Haitians, Kim! Kim’s desperate for the spotlight Pimpmomager Kris Jenner also came along with her since she’s got no man to speak of.

The party was apparently packed — surprisingly. “It’s a tradition to ring in the new year here at Tao!,” Kim told The Hollywood Reporter. To go with her new image, Kim debuted some new bangs which she sported with a skin-tight white Gucci mini dress.

“I am ready to move forward and not look back. I learned a lot of about myself this past year and at the end of the day you always have to trust your gut,” Kim told THR of 2011. “You’ve got to believe in love. I still do.” Photos of Kim and Kris at Tao are below!

The last season of Mob Wives ended with a throw down and from the previews it seems like there’s more of the same this time around. I can’t wait! Last night, the ladies of Staten Island dealt with near death experiences and a celebration of life party that quickly turns sour.

The episode begins with Renee Graziano heading to the plastic surgeon to get a full body makeover. She wants a flat stomach and new bum. It looks like it’s going to be A LOT of work. Once she’s on the operating table Renee begins to get nervous. Her son checks in with the receptionist to see how she’s doing, and the camera man is kind enough to show us a giant piece of skin and fat they have removed from Renee’s body. Something tells me this isn’t going to end well.

The ladies of Love & Hip Hop are no strangers to drama. In fact, the most recent episode highlighted a cat fight between Kimbella Vanderhee and video vixen Erica Mena.

Following the airing of the fist fight (which appeared largely instigated by Erica), Erica is now crying foul stating she was misrepresented on the show! Uh, uh. In an interview with Necole Bitchie, Erica claims VH1 edited her to be the bad guy and that the show is now ruining her modeling career because surely we all knew who she was before the show aired!

“My whole image in my career is now affected by this. I wanted them to pull this clip because I don’t want to show this side of me,” says Erica.

Erica adds: “[Kimbella] throwing that glass at me — like I said, whether cameras are there or not, how I reacted is just how I would react for any situation, whether I was on the show or not. Obviously my words hurt her so she decided to become a Basketball Wife and throw a glass at me so I had to be a Bronx b*tch and snuff her. It plays out how it plays out. I can’t really get into that point right now but that moment did backfire on me. There is the bad, there is the ugly, it is what it is.”

Meanwhile, TheYBF.com recently spilled the beans regarding a discussion with Yandy Smith who accounts for the brawl between her close friend and potential client. Yandy believes the drama is manufactured for the show by VH1. You don’t say! A portion of her interview is below.

YBF: Some people believe you’re an instigator, and you play like you have no idea what’s going on. And what we can’t understand is why does EVERYBODY want to fight Kimbella? Is she always the victim or do you call her out for her wrong doings as well?

Yandy: I know people have been calling me the Don King of reality tv, but what I want folks to know is that you only see 10 minutes out of a person’s 24 hour day. I am not all about money and I am a good friend. But this is a reality show…it’s for entertainment. These ladies and I are not really friends, but we are put in social interactions for entertainment purposes. And sometimes, things happen. The producers like to get a reaction because a good fight can lead to 3 million viewers.

As for Kimbella, she doesn’t play victim at all. But for whatever reason, a lot of people [on and off the show] hate on her. I have seen it with my own eyes….people want to pick on her. And now she is so used to people coming for her that she is a little sensitive. But once you break down that wall, she is a sweet girl. But she is not presented in the best light on this show for a number of reasons.

YBF: Any chance of you reconciling with Chrissy after the drama with Jimmy and Mama Jones and you dancing to Nancy’s song?

Yandy: I’ve said it before, I don’t have a problem with Chrissy. I never have. But I have always been close to Nancy. We have talked on the phone every day for the past 8 years. And I wasn’t trying to diss Chrissy when we danced to the song. But it’s like, if you are in the club and a song your favorite auntie made comes on…..you are going to dance! I was like, we in the club and they playing Nancy’s song! I didn’t think about how that made Chrissy feel…..but I did apologize.

TMZ is also reporting about Erica Mena’s latest scene, where she fought with Kimbella Vanderhee after stirring the pot to the point Kimbella had no recourse but to throw a drink her face. Kimbella says, according to the site, that Erica “wasn’t edited to look like the bad guy during their massive hair-pulling cat fight in this week’s episode — Erica WAS the bad guy… and VH1 just showed her for who she truly is.”

As you recall, Erica unleashed a verbal assault on Kimbella about her part in cheapening the video ladies’ persona. Erica believes that she was edited to look like the villain provoking the fight with her negative and aggressive conversation. Erica feels that VH1 portrayed her as a bully that hated Kimbella’s impact on the rap video world by working for less than deserved.

Kimbella is coming to the defense of VH1 after Erica cried foul that she was purposely made to look like the bad guy. Kimbella believes that what was shown on the episode was an accurate depiction of what actually happened, and the network did nothing to try to create more drama. She reveals, “VH1 didn’t do editing on anything with [Erica]. That’s who she is.” Kimbella insinuates Erica started the fight to boost her career as well as give herself relevance in the world of reality television.

Erica, playing by the P.R. playbook after the ladies’ knock-down-drag-out, promises the site, “I wish her well and much success in 2012. Have a happy new year!” Yeah. Because that is totally sincere!

WHAT DID YOU THINK OF ERICA AND YANDY’S INTERVIEWS? DO YOU THINK ERICA WAS EDITED TO BE THE BAD GUY? DO YOU BELIEVE YANDY IS INNOCENT OR A DRAMA STIRRER?


Amber Portwood continues to remain in Indiana’s Madison County Jail after spending the holidays there, but things are not going well for the reality star who is now on suicide watch.

Amber is expected to stay behind bars until January 27th after she was locked up for probation violations and being found with over 40 pills for a controlled substance. According to sources, Amber, who testified last week that she felt “exploited” by appearing on Teen Mom and wants off the show, is being brutally harassed while incarcerated for her appearance on the reality show!

MailOnline is reporting that the 21-year-old Amber is having a horrible experience behind bars — which is the idea since it’s, you know, a punishment. “She’s barely eaten or had any sleep in over a week and she’s constantly being harassed in jail because of Teen Mom,” an insider reports.

“Amber thought because she was a celebrity she’d get out of jail within a few hours like Lindsay Lohan, but she definitely had a wake up call and hasn’t stopped crying since being locked up.” Unfortunately, Circuit Court Judge David Happe decided Amber should stay in the facility until her next hearing.

Faced with a month in jail (and possibly more) Amber has become more “depressed and alone” than ever after being constantly made fun of by other inmates. “She has barely eaten or slept in a full week after one girl purposely knocked over her food tray and another inmate threw toilet water in her face while she was trying to sleep.”

“Amber has already been moved twice from two other cell blocks because all the inmates were threatening her and she was scared she’d get beat up,” the insider continues. Because of the pressures she is now facing behind bars, “Amber recently told the guard if she was sent to prison she would kill herself which put the Teen Mom on temporary suicide watch.”

Adding to her volatile situation an insider reports that the “really depressed” Amber is without her psych meds because the jail allegedly “won’t give her any prescription medication for her anxiety.” Even worse for poor Amber she had no visitors on Christmas Day since she is only allowed visitors on Saturdays and Christmas fell on Sunday this year. Her mother Tonya has been her only visitor since her stay and she has not seen her daughter.

Amber reportedly called her ex-boyfriend Gary Shirley, but the conversation did not go well. “Amber called Gary and Leah on Christmas morning and had a meltdown on the phone after hearing Gary’s new girlfriend was spending the holiday with her daughter,” the insider revealed. “She cursed out Gary saying it was his fault she was in jail, but Gary told Amber she got what she deserved and hung up on her.”

“Amber feels threatened that she is being replaced as Leah’s mom and she didn’t even have a chance to buy her daughter Christmas gifts before going to jail.”

“Gary thinks Amber being in jail for a long period of time is a good thing for her, he thinks she needs to finally learn her lesson and suffer the consequences.” Amber’s mother does not agree — she believes leaving reality TV behind is the right choice for Amber and that to get her life back on track she needs to leave the show. She is working vehemently to get Amber released from her MTV contract!

“Amber’s mom [Tonya] said the only way she’ll help her get out is if she quits the show so they’re currently negotiating with MTV trying to get her out of her contract,” the insider adds. “I really think this is the final straw for Amber, she’s quitting Teen Mom for good.” A photo of Amber and Tonya leaving court is below.

The short long wait is over as the new season of The Bachelor returns tonight on ABC!

On the 16th season of the ABC hit show, Ben Flajnik, who was rejected by Bachelorette Ashley Hebert last year after getting down on one knee to propose, returns to find love amongst 25 desperate eager bachelorettes!

When asked if he found love on the show, Ben plays coy stating “I obviously can’t tell you that. But I’m happy with my decision in doing the show. Another good experience. Another cathartic, therapeutic adventure for me.” Hint – He did and is now engaged!

CLICK HERE FOR THE BACHELOR SPOILERS & BEN FLAJNIK’S FIANCE!

So what is Ben looking for in a potential mate? “It’s important for me to be with someone who’s well-rounded, cultured and flexible,” says Ben, 29. “Not someone who is so used to routine. Because my life is very sporadic. Being in the wine industry, no two days are the same. So those were important qualities that I looked for.”

Ben is also asked if he’s concerned that, you know, pretty much 99% of the show’s relationships end up not working out. “Relationships end whether you’re on a TV show or not. Some haven’t worked out and some have. There are some celebrated relationships on this show,” claims Ben. Good answer!

Ben also assures us that when “all of this is said and done, I just want to go back to my life in Northern California, where most people really don’t know who I am. And I’d prefer it that way.”

As for what we can expect on tonight’s premiere, sensitive New York blogger Jenna has an emotional breakdown over Ben while another contestant Monica — who is reportedly bisexual — shows more interest in a fellow contestant than in Ben! And Brittney tries to snag a first impression rose by bringing her Grandma on to meet Ben.

The Bachelor premieres tonight at 8/7c on ABC.
