TMZ is reporting that Slade Smiley, serial housewife dater & boyfriend of Gretchen Rossi, owes $80,000 in back child support to the mother of his sick son. What makes this worse is the fact that Slade’s 9 year old son, Grayson, is is fighting an inoperable brain tumor .
Slade has filed a request in L.A. County Superior Court, asking a judge to lower the child support bill because he says he’s unemployed and makes zero dollars. Slade’s rep tells TMZ that Slade has “jumped through burning hoops to take care of [his son’s] well-being and health.”
The mother of Slade’s son however tells a different story, stating that Slade has only seen his sick child twice in the last year and a half, and hasn’t even sent the kid a birthday card.
The ex-husband of Sheree Whitfield appeared on a radio show Monday and gave his ex-wife Sheree Whitfield a verbal leashing.
Bob Whitfield, a retired NFL player, revealed some shocking details about the Real Housewives of Atlanta star, claiming he had sex tapes and explicit photos of her. He also revealed and made fun of Sheree’s multiple plastic surgeries, saying he made her into what she is today.
Bob was quite the comedian on the Nigel and Marco radio show where he dished on his ex, who he pays $113,422 a year after the divorce. “I’m feeling like I’m the mad scientist and I created Frankenstein,” Bob ranted. Discussing her plastic surgeries, Bob said “She didn’t have that nose; I put that nose on her! She didn’t have them breasts, I put them breasts on her!”
He went on to make jokes about releasing tapes and photos of Sheree, saying “You see what it did for Kim Kardashian.” Yikes at all the parties involved. It seems Bob is upset about Sheree bad mouthing him on the show. Sheree had revealed Bob was a bit absent from the lives of his kids, and that she had yet to receive her divorce settlement from him.

It seems hell might have frozen over as the NYDailyNews is reporting that Jill Zarin and Kelly Bensimon have become fast BFFs.
The stars of the Real Housewives of New York City have reportedly gotten closer especially since Jill’s falling out with Bethenny Frankel over the summer. “Now that Bethenny is out of the picture, Jill is definitely on team Kelly,” one source insists.
The NYDailyNews also states that Kelly is determined to change her image, as she was not happy with her portrayal on the show’s previous season. “She was mortified when that show aired last year,” a source close to the former model dishes. “She is really trying to look better in front of the cameras this season.”
So what is Kelly doing to improve her image? Well for starters, she showed on time to the Halloween bash she hosted in N.Y.C. on Saturday night. She even gave up her VIP table to hang out in the crowd. “She was dancing and saying hi to everyone,” another partygoer said. “A lot of people were kind of shocked at how nice she was being.”
Also in attendance of her Halloween bash was Jill. It is also said that Bethenny has become close friends with Ramona Singer, and Alex McCord. This should all make for a very interesting third season.
Above is a preview of what is to come. Kim Zolciak talks about the role of Big Poppa aka Lee Najjar in the life of her, and her kids. After doing many interviews during which she claimed she would never get back together with Big Poppa, it appears the two of them are once again back at it.
Perhaps things will be different this time as Big Poppa has put his home on the market. This is the same home he was sharing with his wife and kids.
Other hot topics to come in the reunion include a viewer question to Sheree Whitfield, asking her whether she is a lesbian. Andy also confronts Nene Leakes on her stripper past.
TELL US – WHAT ARE YOU THOUGHTS ON PART 1 OF THE REUNION EPISODE?
Though she and the other NY housewives found out about Bethenny’s pregnancy through the press, she says she wishes Bethenny nothing but good wishes.
“She’ll be a good mom,” Ramona, 52, told US at the Animal Fair magazine Halloween Pet Costume party in New York City. ” I think it will teach her about being more giving, more loving, and about opening up her heart.” Leave it to Ramona to give someone a nice backhanded well wish.
Ramona believes Bethenny and her fiance, Jason Hoppy, who works in real estate, will make great parents and have a lasting marriage.
“[Bethenny and Jason] remind me a little bit of my husband, Mario, and I because I’m very independent, I speak my mind, I have my good sides and bad sides,” Ramona says. “My husband just loves me for me and gets amused by everything about me. I think the same thing [is true] with Jason and Bethenny. Jason’s lovely.”
The Real Housewives of New York Citystar had hoped to wait until she was further along to break the news, but a Monday report by celebrity blogger Perez Hilton, has forced Bethenny, 38, to admit she is 2 months pregnant.
“It’s premature to be telling people this,” she tells PEOPLE while fighting back tears. Bethenny had hoped to keep her pregnancy a secret a bit longer and is not too pleased that her fiance Jason Hoppy‘s parents had to find out about it through the media.
“It’s not like, ‘Did I Get Botox?’ It’s not the way I wanted it to get out,” she says. “I haven’t even gone through my first trimester. We haven’t even heard the heartbeat. My [fiancé’s] parents didn’t even know.”
She and Jason are however “both so excited,” says Bethenny. Still, she adds that because the pregnancy is early and due to her age, “I am praying everything is okay but I don’t know that yet.”
And since this is Bethenny, she had to add a little humor to the situation. “I got to be honest, we are both feeling kind of proud of ourselves. We are both 38 and we were like, ‘Listen, your fish can swim and I am fertile.’ So that’s exciting.”
Bethenny says she and Jason plan on tying the knot before the baby arrives.
Congrats to Bethenny. She looks rather happy lately. I do feel bad that she is forced to confirm her 2 months pregnancy due to the media, which includes us. Our blog is however a bit different because we don’t break the news, we simply report on what is out there. Unfortunately once Perez Hilton, whose blog reaches millions a day, broke the story, it was already out there and we sort of have to report about it. Not sure if Perez knew she was only 2 months along, highly doubt it would have changed his perspective on breaking the story though.
