The season finale of Keeping Up With The Kardashians featuring the birth of Kourtney Kardashian’s first child, was the most watched program in the history of the E! network. Drawing in 4.8 million viewers, it’s safe to say the Kardashians will not be going away anytime soon.
Some have questioned whether such an intimate moment such as childbirth should have been shown on national television, one person who strongly disagrees is new mom Kourtney.
“She’s 100 percent happy she did it,” Khloe Kardashian, 25, told UsWeekly Tuesday while in NYC. Khloe however revealed she was a little ‘traumatized” with being in the delivery room.
As for her current relationship with her sister’s boyfriend, Scott Disick, whom Khloe is not a fan of, she reveals that “Everyday is different,” when it comes to Scott.
In other news, the NYPost is reportingKhloe Kardashian almost started a cat-fight amongst two Bravo NYC housewives, Kelly Bensimon and Ramona Singer, a during her recent appearance at a NYC night club.
Apparently Khloe was chatting with Kelly, during which Ramona got jealous and decided to pounce in on their conversation in the VIP area, thus causing a ruckus. According to a source, “Ramona barged her way through the VIP area and practically jumped over a table to get to Khloe.” Kelly was reportedly “mortified and left immediately.”
Kelly declined to comment on this story while a rep for Ramona insists she “did not steamroller her way in — Khloe invited her.”

Ready or not, here they come! Some of our favorite and not so favorite Bravo Housewives are set to bring their drama onto the popular game show – “Who Wants To Be A Millionaire.“
Eighteen of the Housewives are set to appear on the show February 22 – 26 as they team up with real-life housewives for a special presentation of “The Real Housewives of Millionaire.” Housewives from all four casts – New York, New Jersey, Atlanta and Orange County – will participate.
Andy Cohen, Executive Producer of the Housewives’ franchise will sit in via Skype as the expert for the “Ask The Expert” lifeline all week. Not to worry though as the Bravo housewives will not be without any help. They will actually be paired in the hot seat with the contestant housewives to help them answer the trivia questions.
The Housewives that will be teaming up with contestants include New Jersey cast members Caroline, Dina, Jaqueline and Teresa; New York cast members Kelly, LuAnn, Ramona, Alex and Jill; and Atlanta housewife, Kandi. Celebrity questions will then be presented to the contestants by Orange County Housewives Vicki, Lynne, Jeana, Gretchen and Tamra, as well as Danielle from the New Jersey cast and Lisa and Sheree from Atlanta.
Jill Zarin of the NY Housewives talked about her excitement in doing the show – “I’m really excited to be here. I bet I’m the only one who really watches the show on a regular basis. I watch it every day. I TiVo it and watch it at night. I do. And then when I got asked to be on the show, I died. It was like dying and going to heaven.”
Dina Manzo of NJ was nervous and hoped to get a lot of pop culture questions. “I’ve been too busy to get ready, that’s why I’m so afraid. I could redecorate the whole set with my eyes shut, but I’m scared to answer these questions. I just hope she has a good sense of humor, my partner,” said Dina.

Kelly, who poses nude in the magazine, reveals she decided to pose for the mag “to show the world that a 41-year-old mother of two can be sexy!”
And how was it having her ex-husband, legendary fashion photographer Gilles Bensimon, shoot her? “That was my idea,” said Kelly. “No one takes more beautiful pictures of women than Gilles. I know a lot of amazing photographers, and they’re all lovely and awesome, but Gilles makes women better versions of themselves, and that’s what I wanted for Playboy.”
So did Kelly actually reveal everything? That answer is no according to Kelly because “I didn’t want to do that. I don’t think that part of a woman’s body is really evocative. The roundness of the hips, the buttocks, the breast, the shoulders, the clavicle, the hair, the teeth—those are things that I think are most evocative and provocative parts of the body. So I don’t think it’s really necessary to show that. Some people might think it’s necessary, but it wasn’t for me.”
According to the Post, the wife & hubby duo are not going to be asked back for a season four. Season Three, which is set to premier March 4, just wrapped up filming. They will be appearing on the 3rd season.
So why are Simon & Alex not being asked back? According to a source, “There are a ton of reasons they aren’t being asked back.”
The first being, “Viewers don’t have a positive reaction to them, so they’re easily replaceable at this point,” says the source. However, a Bravo rep insists that “no details have been released about next season” and Simon himself insists, “We have not had any discussions regarding a fourth season.”
“Also, they don’t really fit in with the other wives,” continues the source. “All of the other women’s story lines have interwoven, yet Alex and Simon have kept theirs separate. It isn’t nearly as interesting as the other Housewives’.”
And it doesn’t end there. According to the insider, there are even more reasons. Apparently Simon threw a “hissy fit” because he’s not being paid as much as the other cast members. “Simon wants to be an equal on the show, but that doesn’t really make any sense to Bravo,” the source says. “After all, he’s not a ‘Real Housewife,’ now is he?”
The Post also says the other ladies on the show including Bethenny Frankel, Jill Zarin, Ramona Singer, and Kelly Bensimon would like to see them go. “In the upcoming season, Alex picks a lot of fights, and it looks like it’s an attempt to keep her story line relevant,” the insider says. “But it ended up seeming inauthentic.”
So far no word yet on who will replace Alex & Simon, if they do end up leaving the show.

Rumors of an impending exit for the Brooklynites began swirling just as filming wrapped on Season Three, which begins March 4. Says an insider, “There are a ton of reasons they aren’t being asked back.”
So where do we begin?
“Viewers don’t have a positive reaction to them, so they’re easily replaceable at this point,” the source dishes, although a rep for Bravo insists that “no details have been released about next season” and van Kempen himself says, “We have not had any discussions regarding a fourth season.”
“Also, they don’t really fit in with the other wives,” continues the insider. “All of the other women’s story lines have interwoven, yet Alex and Simon have kept theirs separate. It isn’t nearly as interesting as the other Housewives’.”
Our well-placed snitch says that’s not all: Simon apparently threw a “hissy fit” when he wasn’t paid as well as the other cast members.
“Simon wants to be an equal on the show, but that doesn’t really make any sense to Bravo,” the source says. “After all, he’s not a ‘Real Housewife,’ now is he?”
After months of speculation, a rep for Playboy magazine confirmed to UsMagazine that the mother of two will pose in its March issue. Kelly, “will be featured on the cover and in a 6-page nude pictorial in the March issue,” the rep reveals.
Kelly has already shot her pictorial. She was shot by her ex-husband Gilles Bensimon, who happens to be a famed fashion photographer.
