It's that time of year again. You know what I mean… The time of year when the annual Dancing With The Stars casting speculation resumes in earnest.
We thought we'd help ABC out a bit by dropping some hints about which reality stars we absolutely need (ok want, but semantics, right?) to see strap on a shiny sequined leotard, drop the magical ten pounds, and prance their way into public humiliation whileDerek Houghgyrates them into a sequined disco ball statue.
Our favorite reality TV stars can’t get enough of the spotlight during their regularly scheduled time slots, so they take to Twitter to share even more of their daily lives with us. And we love them for it! Here’s a roundup of some of our favorite photos from the Twitterverse this week! Enjoy!
A new bikini line isn't the only project that Real Housewives of Orange County'sGretchen Rossi is working on. The reality TV star reveals in a new interview that she and Slade Smiley are working on having a baby together.
Gretchen tells Ok magazine, "We’re working really hard right now to have a baby. He actually has a vasectomy so he has to get a reversal and we have to kind of figure that all out. The scoop is we are taking the steps to try to have a baby."
Although she turned Slade'smarriage proposal down a few months back, Gretchen tells the mag that she might be ready now. "If that is the path we are taking there should be some sort of commitment and I don’t know when that is going to happen and who is going to ask who. I might not [ask him to marry me], but I’m just saying you never know. I kind of have a wild hair up my ass. I’m just saying a guy doesn’t always have to do it. He can still do it, but maybe I might too. I don’t know, but if [he] doesn't something soon, I might have to!"
Oh good gracious, I don't even know where to begin. It's absolutely amazing to me how all of the housewives from every last franchise are able to keep their names in the media when their shows are on hiatus. You'd think they'd appreciate the break!
This time around, we've got Gretchen Rossi from Real Housewives of Orange County scoring a restraining order against former boyfriend/alleged stalker (depending on you believe) Jay Photoglou. In the lawsuit Gretchen waged against Jay for slander, stalking, assault, and infliction of emotional distress, the jury believed the latter, awarding Gretchen $500,000 in damages. I bet Tamra Barney feels pretty stupid now. Correct me if I'm wrong, but when she and Gretchen were on the outs, didn't Tamra and Jay have each other on speed dial to share juicy Gretchen gossip?
As we reported the other day, Grayson, the son of Real Housewives of Orange County'sSlade Smiley, underwent brain surgery for a tumor hes been battling for years. Many of our readers were upset that Gretchen Rossi was Facebooking the status of Grayson's surgery. Unless you've been living under a rock, you know how tense things are between Slade and Grayson's mother as he claims he can't afford to pay child support or help with their son's mounting medical bills.
While Gretchen was asking for prayers for Grayson from her fans, many wondered how Grayson's mother would feel about her updating the world on her boyfriend's son. I think she's more interested in her son's well-being and sharing how you can donate to help pay his bills than to worry about Gretchen.
If you recall, 20/20 did a report on Brooks where they claimed that he wasn't paying anything for his son with ex-girlfriend Nicolette Catanzarite and hadn't visited his son since he was 5 or 6 months old. Furthermore, Nicolette claimed that she had no clue of Brooks' whereabouts until he showed up on RHOC! Well, now the news program is setting the record straight thanks to ol' Brooks.
Meanwhile, Vicki's daughter Briana Culberson and her husband Ryan are NOT singing Brooks' praises. In fact, they are bashing him left and right in the Twitterverse…in between posts about how excited they are to welcome their son in the very near future. It's all incredibly scandalous, and Briana isn't one to partake in drama so I'm inclined to believe what she is saying!
