Ron Artest

In the wake of Kimsha Artest’s accusations about having her scenes cut from Basketball Wives: L.A. (as well as hurling insults at Miami’s queen bee Shaunie O’Neal), some of the original Basketball Wives are responding to her tirade.

You may recall that last week, Kimsha took to the Facebook machine to let all of cyberspace know that Shaunie was behind Kimsha’s lack of face-time on VH1′s reality show. She also not so kindly insinuated that Shaunie spent a good amount of her time kissing up to her fellow cast mate Evelyn Lozada. Not surprisingly, both Shaunie and Evelyn are not going to turn the other cheek.

Evelyn, always the calm one, has come to the defense of her BFF Shaunie, revealing the true reason for Kimsha’s absence on Basketball Wives: L.A. Apparently, she’s not shown because she’s a (say it with me!) non-mutha f**kin’ factor. Of course she is! Evelyn made the following tweets -

“**CLEARING THINGS UP** @ShaunieONeal does not have anything 2 do with the LA show!If your scenes were edited then that means u were a NMFF!

I think it’s ridiculous 2 place blame on someone if your scenes didn’t make the cut! Everything we say doesn’t! Some more than others. Everything u say wont air.

FYI – I’m not kissing anyone’s ass or vice versa! I been friends with Shaunie for 6 years now, way before BBall Wives existed! #Loyal I’m not taking shots either, but some of the shit I read is just plain stupid! I’m being a realest & keeping it 100! Blame your self! #Boom”

That Evelyn is quite the wordsmith.

Shaunie flat out denies any feud between the ladies. In a statement to VH1, she says, “We’ve never met, so there is no relationship. I’ve met Ron [Artest] before a couple times, but never Kimsha, ever. I can’t say anything about her because I don’t know her. I don’t know how you fight someone that you’ve never met nor talked to. We’ve never been in the same place at the same time that I know of. And I would never ever fight somebody, I guess you’d have to meet them first to do that, and that’s never happened. So, I really don’t know where all that came from.”

Even Kimsha’s hubby Ron Artest Metta World Peace is weighing in, saying there can’t be a feud as Kimsha never made the initial attacks on Facebook. He reveals, “Kimsha Artest on Facebook is fake. I will not post her real fb. But that one is fake!!” Metta says, “Don’t believe any negative comments you here about Kimsha Artest. She is happy to be working with viacom and vh1…She has no drama with Shaunie or anyone.” He concludes, “Kimsha Artest does not like drama so that’s why y’all have not seen her on the show. She doesn’t want to be seen representing females falsely.”

Hmmm…legitimate case of stolen identity or major damage control? I’m sure it isn’t all that difficult to create a fake Facebook page, but I also don’t put it past any of these ladies to create major drama and then start back pedaling as fast as humanly possible. A new episode of Basketball Wives: L.A. airs tonight at 8PM ET on VH1.

DO YOU THINK SOMEONE CREATED THE FAKE PAGE TO STIR THE POT, OR WAS THAT THE REAL KIMSHA ARTEST? WHY DO YOU THINK KIMSHA HAS BEEN ABSENT FROM THE SHOW LATELY?


One thing I can say about the Kardashian siblings is they definitely stick together! Sometimes to a fault…

In the latest controversy to plague America’s least favorite fame-crazed family, the Keeping Up With The Kardashians stars took to Twitter to trash brother Rob Kardashian‘s Dancing With The Stars competition, Elisabetta Canalis! Keep it Klassy!

After Rob and his partner Cheryl Burke were placed in the bottom three Tuesday night, an outraged Kourtney Tweeted: “There is NO way Rob Kardashian was trending worldwide last night and in the bottom 3. Impossible!” Kourtney, then demanded to know: “HOW IS ELISABETTA SAFE?!??! HOW?! Seriously!!!” And sister Khloe chimed in with “Agreed! So odd!”

Apparently Kourtney and Khloe believed Elisabetta should be in the bottom three instead of their younger brother, Rob, you know, because Rob’s 16 points score was much better from Elisabetta’s 15. Perhaps there is some merit to the rumors that Rob has been slacking off something major during dance practice!

When a fan Tweeted Khloe: “Rob did much better then Elisabetta Canalis, just my opinion…Shouldnt b in the bottom 3,” Khloe responded with: “Shows are rigged all the time.” Um… you mean reality TV isn’t 100% true all of the time; they never “manufacture” drama?!

Kim also got in on the action, Tweeting: “This just can’t be! Rob in the bottom 3! This is impossible! He did soooo good!!!!”

The Kardashians implored their fans (and surprisingly they have many) to vote for Rob and after it was announced that he was safe, Khloe suddenly started singing a different tune, Tweeting: “Honestly I didn’t think anyone of those people should have been in the bottom 3 :( sucks…..” Hopefully Rob will redeem himself next week so we are spared another bout of the Kardashian Mafia.

Sadly, for Elisabetta none of the Kardashians issued her an apology after they snarked on her dancing! Good thing as the HollywoodLife blog is reporting today that Elisabetta could care less about the harsh comments by the Kardashians!

“Elisabetta couldn’t care less about what the Kardashian sisters said about her. She is refusing to go down to their level. She is taking the show as a fun experience to build off of and get more opportunities in her career. She wants to have fun, not scandal and cattiness,” said a source.

The insider also goes on to diss Rob: “Rob is a bit of a diva, and he should know that he is on the show only because of his sisters, the producers are really only interested in having them in the audience for the potential ratings they bring to the show.” Ouch!

In other Dancing With The Stars news the list of Bravo reality stars desperate to dance is growing as Real Housewives of Atlanta‘s NeNe Leakes revealed she is itching to strap on her dancing shoes!

In a recent interview with Access Hollywood, NeNe commented: “I think would be good on ‘Dancing with The Stars.’ If nothing else I would be entertaining. They wouldn’t take their eyes off me, girl!” She then jumped up and gave hostess Kit Hoover a demonstration of her dancing skills – which left much to be desired! One would think NeNe’s past as an exotic dancer would have given her a few more moves!

Are you shocked that Kourtney and Khloe would call out Elisabetta’s dancing on Twitter? Do you think they owe Elisabetta an apology for their comments? Would you watch NeNe on DWTS?

Peta Murgatroyd

Following Monday night’s premiere of Dancing With The Stars season 13, four celebs found themselves at risk of being eliminated, after all earning 16 points or less.

Fortunately for Rob Kardashian and Elisabetta Canalis, they were declared safe during the results show leaving NBA player Ron Artest and news anchor Nancy Grace in the bottom two.

Ultimately fans of the show didn’t give Metta World Peace a chance as Ron became the first star to be eliminated this season. Ron and his partner/newbie Peta Murgatroyd received the lowest scores on Monday, earning a mere 14 points out of a possible 30.

Ron, 31, however took his elimination in stride. “All I want to know is who’s coming with me?” he joyfully stated after his dismissal.

He then went on to thank his partner. “Peta was great! She was awesome,” said Ron. “I want to say thank you to ABC, Dancing With the Stars and Peta. I had a great time!”

The 11 remaining celebs have less than a week to learn their new dances for Monday, Sept. 26.

The official cast photos of Dancing With The Stars season 13 have now been released!

Above is the first glimpse of Chaz Bono, the first transgendered contestant on the show, in his dancing costume alongside partner Lacey Schwimmer. As we reported, the casting of Chaz, 42, has proven to be a rather controversial one for ABC with some fans voicing their disapproval.

Below are more photos of the remaining “stars” which includes David Arquette, Nancy Grace, Kristin Cavallari, Carson Kressley and their dancing partners!

In other DWTS news, TMZ is reporting today that Rob Kardashian has been slacking off when it comes to practicing his dance moves. Rob’s partner Cheryl Burke is reportedly “fed up” with him as he refuses to practice for more than 2 hours with her. Other contestants are putting in over 5 hours a day.

Cheryl now feels this shows Rob’s lack of interest in doing the show. And while he’s busy not practicing, Rob is reportedly bragging to his older sister Kimmie Kardashian that he will top her DWTS performance by making it past week 3. Good luck with that one Robbie!

Dancing With The Stars returns to ABC on Sep. 19 at 8/7c.

Basketball Wives LA Los Angeles

Basketball Wives L.A. premiered last week to not only high ratings, but a ton of drama!

The L.A. cast wasted no time as a physical altercation occurred on the premiere episode! Laura Govan and Malaysia LaQuisha Pargo came to blows after Laura referred to Malaysia as a “rat.” Even more shocking, Laura had just given birth to her fourth child 3 weeks earlier.

In a recent radio interview, Laura’s little sister Gloria Govan reveals she was “upset” about the fight. “Ooh, I was so upset. But you know when I realized what it was really about, I couldn’t really be mad at her. She was going through so much stuff,” said Gloria about her sister. Gloria also promises that fight will be the only physical altercation on the show. How disappointing!

When it comes to her relationship with fiance Matt Barnes, Gloria admits the 5-year romance hasn’t been perfect. This was clearly evident following Matt’s arrest last year for domestic violence. Even more surprising, she doesn’t deny that he’s never been unfaithful to her. “I’m not gonna sit up here and be like, ‘No, you know he’s perfect and we’re fabulous’… it’s never been in my face,” said Gloria.

The rumor today is that Matt might have dumped Gloria. Below is more gossip and secrets about each of the Basketball Wives L.A. cast member as well as their bios!

A new episode of Basketball Wives L.A. airs tonight on VH1 at 8/7c.

Draya MicheleDraya Michele – Draya is currently a model and aspiring actress in Los Angeles with several music videos and magazine covers to her credit. A controversial beauty with a history of dating players, the funny and engaging Draya says “I have a million haters. I open the list of haters and it rolls across the floor.” No word yet if any of the new LA wives make that list.

Gossip - Before joining Basketball Wives LA, Draya (real name Andraya M. Howard) had a pretty poor reputation as being a big time groupie. One who has allegedly slept with a ton of athletes, rappers, and entertainers. The former stripper is from Philly and is also a single mother of one. Draya, 25, actually lost custody of her 7-year-old son earlier this year after she was arrested for child endangerment. Her son called 911 and told cops he was being left home alone on a regular basis. Draya also dated R&B singer Chris Brown just last year.

Val is the younger brother of DWTS hotness Maksim Chmerkovskiy. And despite the speculation that we might be getting the first same-sex couple this season, openly gay style guru Carson Kressley is paired up with a female partner.

Returning this season is three-time champ Derek Hough after taking a break last season. Derek is paired up with Ricki Lake.

Below are the full pairings for DWTS Season 13 -

  • Nancy Grace and Tristan MacManus
  • Hope Solo and Maksim Chmerkovskiy

Meanwhile this season’s Kate Gosselin Nancy Grace, who is arguably the biggest casting surprise this year, is speaking out on doing the show.

In a new interview, Nancy reveals she thought she was dreaming when she got the call from DWTS. “I feel like Cinderella that got invited to the ball. I don’t know how to dance,” Nancy, 51, states. “I don’t know what I’m going to wear, but I know I have been invited.”

Nancy adds, “I want to have fun. Ever since my fiance was killed in ’79, my whole life has been about putting bad guys away, going to law school, making law review, trying cases, representing crime victims – and this is such a departure, to get to dress up in crazy outfits and dance. Are you kidding me?!” Nancy also states she is NOT counting on Casey Anthony’s vote!

The new season of DWTS premieres Sep. 19 on ABC.

The new cast of Dancing with the Stars season 13 has been unveiled!

Following weeks of speculation, ABC officially announced the 12 latest “stars” who will be vying for the mirror ball trophy. While reports stated the network was working hard this season to get A-list celebs, it appears they fell rather short of that goal. The biggest name on the list is arguably actor David Arquette.

Other big names include this season’s Kate Gosselin Nancy Grace, Cher’s transgendered son Chaz Bono, Ricki Lake, and soccer player Hope Solo.

The biggest surprise might be the addition of fashion guru Carson Kressley, who is mostly known for his role on Bravo’s Queer Eye for the Straight Guy. The casting of Carson is quickly fueling speculation that DWTS might have its first same sex couple this season!

And unfortunately for Housewives fans, RHOBH star Kim Richards did not make the cut. It was reported days ago that Kim was on the short list to get added to the cast. Kim tweeted late yesterday, “Sadly I’m not on #DWTS this season! That would have been so fun, good luck to everyone on it! It will be an amazing journey:) goodnight all!”

The complete list of “stars” below:

David Arquette, actor
Ron Artest, NBA player
Chaz Bono, LGBT activist (son of Sonny Bono and Cher)
Elisabetta Canalis, former girlfriend of George Clooney
Kristin Cavallari, reality TV star
Nancy Grace, TV talk-show host
Rob Kardashian, reality TV star
Carson Kressley, reality TV star
Ricki Lake, actress
