Hugh, 84, and Crystal, 24, both appeared on the Piers MorganTonight show this week, during which they confirmed they will be tying the knot on June 18. In fact, the two are planning to tie the knot at the Playboy mansion.
“It will be intimate with a close number of friends here at the mansion,” Hugh said of the nuptials. “No big blowout affair. Something very personal.”
An insider reveals to UsWeekly that they’ve set the list at less than 300 guests, adding that Crystal is close to making one other important choice: the wedding gown. Crystal, who’s engagement ring is worth $90,000, is reportedly eyeing a strapless dress by designer Romona Keveza.
Weeks after bumping the Real Housewives of NYC, Bravo premiered the Real Housewives of Miami last night and so far, the reviews today have pretty much panned the show, but more on this later. The Miami franchise definitely felt like a mix between Basketball Wives and the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. Is this a good mix you ask? Well, let’s find out!
On to the recap – the premiere episodes of the Bravo housewives are usually a bit ADD and all over the place but something about the RHMIA just seemed slightly more all over the place.
In the first scene, we are introduced to snob #1 Lea, a “people collector” who finds joy in collecting crazy people, as I breathe a sigh of relief that Lea wasn’t around pre-Lincoln days. Some of the people collected by Lea include rapper Rick Ross and former NBA hot mess star Dennis Rodman. In this scene, we also get a glimpse of drag queen Elaine Lancaster in the background. Elaine was rumored to have been a cast member back when the show was still titled ‘Miami Social Club.’ It will be interesting to see if Elaine is in a lot of scenes through out the season. So okay, not a big fan of Lea but what the hey! There are 5 more ladies left so let’s go!

In today’s Nene Leakesis not going to be happy about this one news, Kim Zolciakgraces the latest cover of Life & Style magazine!
The six months pregnantReal Housewives of Atlantastar dons a bikini to show off her growing baby bump. Kim reveals to the mag that she is drama-free and happier than ever during the bump-revealing photo shoot with Life & Style on Feb. 20.
Kim also opens up about her belly, her baby’s daddy to be Atlanta Falcons defensive end Kroy Biermann, 25, whom she’s been dating since May, and the possibility of another baby in their future.
“I’ll be 33 when I have this baby, and I’m more in touch with my body now,” she tells Life & Style. Kim, who already has two daughters, Brielle, 13, and Ariana, 9, from a previous marriage, says she’s gained about 20 pounds so far. “I’m definitely eating a lot more now than I did with my girls.” Not that she — or her man Kroy — minds a little extra weight. “Kroy loves me pregnant. I don’t remember my ex-husband being that into it, but Kroy loves it. He tells me I’m so beautiful.”
Following nearly 10 months of dating, Kim reveals she and Kroy are finally moving in together in Atlanta, just in time for their newborn’s June arrival. “We’ll be moved in before the baby is born,” she says.
So are wedding bells in the near future? “Kroy’s perfect for me, but we’re not engaged,” Kim tells Life & Style. “If we get married, Kroy would like to have one more child, and I want one too!”
You can read more about Kim’s pregnancy in the latest issue of Life & Style magazine. A full shot of Kim’s growing belly is below -

The 40-year-old mother of one, who gave birth to daughter Krishna just one year ago, showed off her amazing bikini body as she took a dip in the ocean on Sunday in Nassau in the Bahamas.
As for how she snapped back so quickly after giving birth, Padma credits water. “I drink a ton of water,” she told UsWeekly last December. “Water really flushes everything out.”
Padma is currently in the middle on a nasty custody battle with her daughter’s father Adam Dell, brother to billionaire Michael Dell of Dell Inc. Adam filed a suit for full custody on Jan. 25, with his lawyer, Bill Zabel, stating Adam is upset with the amount of time Padma allows him to have with his daughter.
Sources reveal Adam is also upset with the name Padma chose for his daughter and is unhappy he is not even listed on her birth certificate. According to the filing, he’s asking for his name to be officially listed as the father and for Krishna to take his last name along with Padma’s.
Moving on to tonight’s episode of Top Chef’s All Stars. On the all new episode titled ‘For The Gulf,’ the remaining meal mavens employ a deep fryer in an attempt to please culinary star Paula Deen’s precise palate. Later, the chefs serve up seafood at an event that benefits fishermen of the Gulf region. Paula and chef John Besh are guest judges.
Thoughts On The Season – I finally caught all the episodes of this season thanks to Monday’s marathon and whoa! I have been missing out. What a great season with the all stars! I was a bit disappointed to see the hotness Angelo go home on the last episode as I honestly thought Tiffany should have been the one to go. My favorites are Carla, Antonia, and Dale. I think Carla and Dale are both neck in neck to win it all. It’s been a while since I’ve watched Top Chef but I’m definitely hooked on this season. Plus I had missed Padma’s extreme enthusiasm for her job. With that said, can’t wait to watch tonight! I plan to start writing more about it.
More bikini photos of Padma below!

The girls weep of course and try to find their luggages, only for Tyra to reveal it was all a joke! Very funny indeed.
Below is also a promo video in which Tyra mocks some of the most common types who appear at “ANTM” castings aka the girl that doesn’t really want to be there, the girl that is not there to make friends etc. It’s actually pretty funny.

Another day, another drug arrest for a Teen Mom 2 “star.”
The latest to get arrested is Jonathan “Jo” Rivera, father to Kailyn Lowry‘s son, Isaac. Jonathan, 19 and his brother Edward, 23, were pulled over by cops last Wednesday in Lopatcong, Penn, when they noticed sparks coming from the undercarriage of their car.
Both men were eventually arrested for being under the influence of marijuana. His elder brother was also charged with driving under the influence of marijuana, driving with a suspended license and driving an unsafe vehicle.
In other Teen Mom news, RadarOnline is reporting today that Amber Portwood is currently experiencing another pregnancy scare.
Amber, 20, has reportedly tested positive at least three times during home pregnancy tests in recent weeks, which has her friends and the potential baby daddy convinced she is pregnant again.
“When Amber tested positive, she decided to go to a local clinic to have a doctor tell her once and for all if she is expecting,” one source close to Amber revealed. “It’s confusing because Amber is telling people that the doctor said the test was negative, even though the home pregnancy tests came back positive, and there were a number of them too.”
This isn’t the first time Amber has experienced a pregnancy scare, with the most recent happening back in December. Back then, Amber denied being pregnant. “I’m working hard to be the best mom to my daughter,” Amber said on December 17, adding: “I have no plans to have more kids anytime soon.”

On the premiere episode tonight titled ‘Paradise Cost,’ the RHMIA ladies are ready to bring the heat, starting with back stabbing and trash talk right from the get go. Adriana is off to a bad start when the ladies make fun of her during a fake strut down the catwalk, and things aren’t much better for some of the housewives at what should be a fun cooking party.
The Real Housewives of Miami debuts at 10/9c on Bravo.
Watch What Happens Live – Joining Andy Cohen in the Bravo clubhouse tonight will be Miami housewives Alexia, Lea and Adriana plus Andy promises a “special surprise.”
Meanwhile, some of the Miami housewives are speaking out in a new interview and the big question was are they worried about “editing?” That answer is no according to Lea Black. “I think you have to give people the material,” said Lea. “And if they edit you … I mean, as long as it’s in context, I don’t think you can blame anyone but yourself.”
Lea, a Miami socialite married to criminal defense attorney Roy Black goes on to add, “No one can force you to say things that you say. Now if you’re making a joke and you’re saying something and it’s taking it out of context and put into a mean spirit then I might have an issue about the editing.”
Meanwhile, Alexia Echevarria reveals they haven’t seen the final cut of the show yet, telling reporters “it’s been a while, it’s been almost a year since we filmed but – so it’s going to be interesting.”
A preview clip of tonight’s episode is below -

“All the housewives and husbands took off on Sunday for Punta Cana,” said a source. “It’s a fun trip with friends and family.”
Radar adds that the housewives left their kids behind for this trip, and that Bravo is on hand to film the vacation for season 3. Scary Island 2 anyone?
Meanwhile, some fans are now wondering if Dina Manzo, who quit the show midway through season 2, might be returning based on a recent tweet she made.
“Filming a secret “project” for Bravo today…this should be fun!” tweeted Dina on Monday. However, it’s likely the filming wasn’t for the NJ housewives as Dina revealed a while back that while she wasn’t returning to the Real Housewives of NJ, she was indeed planning a return to TV.
And finally, weeks after Teresa Giudice jokingly stated she actually missed Danielle Staub’s presence on the NJ Housewives, Danielle is now firing back via a new interview with Popeater, making it clear the “the feeling isn’t mutual.”
“I am so happy with my life after leaving ['Housewives']. It wasn’t funny to me. It was very painful,” says Danielle, the current host of Wealth TV’s ‘Social.’ “I’m really happy in my life,” she says. “I have so much that I’ve just begun to do.”
