Kate Gosselin isn't known for tact. Heck, she's really just known for having a ton of babies, at one point sporting a rooster haircut, and having an affair with a bodyguard I'm still not sure why she needs. But not tact. I mean, the woman hashtagged the hurricane under the phrase "SuperfunSandy." Sensitive much? Bless her heart.
Getting back to her infamous hair, the reality television loving mom of eight went from cock-a-doodle-do to coiffed 'do thanks to the Ted Gibson Salon. She got her sleek new look a few years ago after nearly twenty hours in the stylist's chair. We all know Kate likes to get things for free, but had she not gotten the complimentary hairdo it would have reportedly cost $7,000. It's no wonder she was so excited when her salon regained power after the super storm…because that's what's important in light of the devastation.
LuAnn debuted her blonde hair last week during the premiere party for her latest video for the single Chic C’est La Vie. “I wanted to try something new,” said Lulu to Radar Online. “I’ve always wanted to be blonde. Every girl dreams of being blonde some time.”
LuAnn adds that she also made the change to look like a certain Miss Marilyn Monroe. “I wanted to look like Marilyn Monroe for a minute!” laughs LuAnn. “I’m definitely going to keep the new look for awhile.”
So does her beau Ross GellerJacques Azoulay approve? That answer is yes! “He’s having fun with this other woman,” she jokes. And the mane expert responsible for Lulu’s blonde hair, Ted Gibson, also spoke out on her new look. Ted believes this new look makes the Countess look much much younger. “I think she looks 20 years younger. It looks sexy and fresh,” said Ted. Uh uh.
LuAnn is pictured above with her two kids Noel de Lesseps and Victoria de Lesseps at the June 29 premiere of Cirque du Soleil ‘Zarkana.’
In other RHONY news, Jill Zarin made her acting debut yesterday on USA Network’s White Collar. Jill played a speed dater on the episode and according to critics, her performance was lackluster. Gawker describes Jill’s acting debut as “underwhelming,” and the Hollywood Reporter stated viewers were “bewildered” by Jill’s acting citing some of the twitter comments below –
Kiki (@kikinitwithkiki): “Jill Zarin on #WhiteCollar? Oh, Jill, don’t quit your day job. #RHONY”
Grace Yu (@graceyu): “Why is Jill Zarin on #whitecollar?”
Rachel Leigh (@TheRachelLeigh): “What the heck is jill zarin doing in an episode of white collar? Im a fan of jill but celebrity-wanna-be much? #sticktoyourdayjob.”
But we’ll let you be the judge. Below is the video of Jill’s cameo!

TELL US – DOES LUANN’S BLONDE HAIR MAKE HER LOOK 20 YEARS YOUNGER? THOUGHTS ON JILL’S ACTING DEBUT?
LuAnn debuted her lighter hair color yesterday during the premiere party of her latest music video Chic C’est La Vie. Yes the Countess has yet to give up on her singing career. Joining Countess Lulu at her party were her former fellow Brunettes Jill Zarin, Kelly Bensimon and Cindy Barshop.
And in case you’re wondering, that is NOT a wig as she actually dyed her hair blonde with the help of celebrity hairstylist Ted Gibson, the same man responsible for Kate Gosselin’s famous hair transition. LuAnn however had a bit of help with some extensions.
“I don’t know how long I will stay a blonde, but everyone should have the chance to live out a fun fantasy! If you want to try something, go for it!,” LuAnn posted on her facebook page. More pictures below of LuAnn and her fellow NYC Housewives at her party!
Meanwhile Jill and Kelly make a cameo in LuAnn’s new music video as Popeater reports Alex McCord and Ramona Singer declined to be a part of it.
The always classy Countess did not miss an opportunity to talk smack about her costars. “It was very disappointing that the other ladies wouldn’t be part of it. The other girls didn’t come, they didn’t think it was appropriate. I didn’t want anyone to feel like they were being excluded so I invited everyone. And let’s face it, I sing about them in the song,” said LuAnn. “They said it was not the right image they wanted to portray and I was like ‘excuse me, not the right image?’ Who goes out without their panties, another rubs her husbands naked chest on the show, please.”
Below is the new music video for Chic C’est La Vie!

The 4th episode of the Real Housewives of DC aired last night, and boy oh boy, did it tell us a lot about the Salahis.
The episode titled The Grape Stomp of Wrath was a perfect foreshadow to what is to come later on this season. I was going to wait until next week to start doing the DC recaps but after watching last night’s episode, I say let’s get right to it!
The episode starts out with Lynda cooking a meal for her family. In the kitchen with her is her younger boytoy boyfriend Ebong Eka. Something about this union just robs me the wrong way. I can’t decide who’s using who. Ebong’s 35 and Lynda’s 52. Lynda also mentioned in a previous episode that she has no desire to get married again or have any more children. At 35, does Ebong have any kids? If not, does he not want any? Has he ever been married? If not, does he not plan on ever marrying?
Is he with her for the money? Is she with him for the arm candy? It just seems like an interesting relationship. A little search on Ebong shows he was raised in Canada, born to Nigerian parents. He is also a Certified Public Accountant with a taste for designer fashion. Nothing out of the norm. Perhaps I’m just reading too much into things, and these are just two adults in a healthy happy genuine relationship. Only time will tell.
Next, we see Stacie having a get together with her sorority sisters. Stacie, who is adopted, explains she has found her birth mother, who just happens to be Caucasian. Stacie also reveals her birth father is of Nigerian nationality, and does not know of her existence. And this scene is a perfect example of why the DC franchise has a bit more substance than the others. Race, politics, and other “controversial” topics don’t seem to be off limit.
Stacie shares that her birth mom wants to keep her a secret and is not willing to tell her who her birth father is. As Stacie tells her story, we see her sorors, who all look very camera ready and aware that this might be on national television, occasionally chime in.
It’s the opening day for Celebrity Hair Stylist Ted Gibson’s DC salon. Mary is very proud of the monumental day, as she is tired of people referring to DC as the “Hollywood for ugly people.” And in case the Ted Gibson name rings a bell, it’s because Ted also happens to be the hair stylist for Kate Gosselin. Michaele makes her entrance and declares her love for Ted, who thanks her for sponsoring the event. Mary however makes in clear in her voice over interview that she is the one responsible for Ted’s big day, and Michaele is only responsible for providing the store bought wine. Something about Mary is giving me Jill Zarin. Will touch more on that later.
As she’s getting her hair washed, Mary chats it up with Ted, and looks for reassurance that she’s still his #1 favorite girl in the whole entire world. The event starts and the other housewives excluding Stacie are in attendance. Cat makes her mandatory rude comments, and we see Lynda chatting it up with Michaele following their not so nice words of exchange in a previous episode. Lynda makes it clear she doesn’t like to hold grudges. “I don’t hold bad energy, it’s just not worth it to me,” says Lynda, who prefers to get her attorneys involved in joking matters.
“It seems like Tareq and Michaele have used their wine as a bit of a bartering system to get into places and to get to know important people,” says Mary, who seems to have a pretty good read on the Salahis. I always find it interesting how certain couples just manage to find one another. You ever know a slimy person, who just happened to marry another equally slimy individual? The Salahis are a good example of this. They just seem made for one another.
The Jon & Kate Plus 8mom took out her $7,000 hair extensions but fret not! (the two people that care that is) as Kate’s hair stylist, Ted Gibson, reveals Kate,34, will be getting some new extensions put in on Thursday.
“We’ll be doing color, we’ll be doing extensions, we’ll be getting her ready for her premiere on ‘Dancing With the Stars!'” said Ted, adding that Kate’s new extensions will include a few different shades of blond. “The extensions will last through the whole time she’s on the show.”
Kate is also featured on the cover of the new issue of PEOPLE magazine during which she defends the criticism she has received on her decision to do DWTS. Some critics believe it’s not in the best interest of her eight kids to do the show. “You say I’m a bad mom, it destroys me,” says Kate who insists she can balance fame and family.
As we previously reported, Kate will be practicing in her family home in Pennsylvania, and then heading to Los Angles from Sunday to Tuesday to film the show.
Kate also reveals she wants to do this for her children. “If I last two weeks on the show, I’ve shown my kids that hard work and perseverance pays off,” says Kate. “And if I don’t win, I’ve shown them you don’t always have to come in first. You just have to keep on trying.”

All talks of a truce have now ceased betweenJon Gosselin and former girlfriendHailey Glassman as RadarOnline is reporting the Jon & Kate Plus 8 dad is moving forward with pursuing charges against Hailey.
Those charges would be for robbing and ransacking his NYC apartment. Both Jon and his lawyer believe Hailey is the responsible party. Hailey has also accused Jon of physically abusing her by pushing her up against a wall.
It was reported last week that both parties were going to meet and try to resolve their differences. But Jon has now decided he does not want to let Hailey off the hook.
In other news, things continue to get serious between Jon and his new 25 year old girlfriend Morgan Christie. PEOPLE magazine is now reporting that Jon met up with Morgan and her mother over the weekend in Utah.
“Based on the body language, it seemed like Jon and the mother have met before,” said an onlooker. “It was really quiet at their table, but the mom was doing most of the talking throughout the night.”
Kate Gosselin also stepped out this weekend, showing off her highly talked about new hair extensions. The 34 year old mother of eight was spotted in her PA hometown as she ran errands during the weekend.
As we previously reported, Kate’s hair stylist Ted Gibson revealed her hair took a total of 20 hours to create, and would cost close to $7,000 at his salons in New York and Washington.
The pimp known asJon Gosselinis at it again. The father of eight has yet once again gotten himself a new girlfriend. PEOPLE magazine is confirming the unlucky new lady in Jon’s life is 25-year-old Morgan Christie.
Morgan reportedly resides in California though she met Jon back in Utah during thanksgiving. Sources tell People, “She grew up very privileged, tons of money.” Morgan is a former Emory University student and met Jon while skiing in Utah, where her relatives live.
The National Enquirer posted the exclusive photo below of Jon and his new chick –
Sighs, young love. We give it 3 more weeks. In other news, Kate Gosselin continues to make headlines for her new makeover, you know the one that has her looking pretty much the same with the exception of a few hair extensions. Well the hair stylist responsible for her “makeover” is speaking out.
Ted Gibson says Kate’s entire makeover took an estimated 20 hours, and estimates the cost to be around $7,000. Yes you read that right. Apparently Ted used the best quality of human hair for Kate’s extensions, that added in with time spent on coloring and other things added up pretty quickly. It’s safe to guess PEOPLE magazine covered the costs for Kate’s new look.
And finally RadarOnline was able to get their hands of a photo of Jon’s NYC apartment after it was ransacked and robbed. The photo shows a large Japanese chef’s knife speared through a note and stuck into the top of his dresser. The note was apparently signed with Hailey Glassman’s name and Jon’s reps have publicly accused his ex GF of being responsible.
As of now, all parties involved are trying to settle their differences, since Hailey came out accusing Jon of being physically abusive to her.
Kate Gosselin is gracing the latest cover of PEOPLE magazine and she’s showing off her new look!
The mother of eight is moving on and putting her nasty divorce and old hairstyle behind her. “It’s good to have hair again,” she told People of her longer new look, aided by extensions. “I never thought I’d have short hair for as long as I did. I feel like this is a fresh start, a fresh me, a fresh life.”
Kate also opens up about her very public divorce to Jon Gosselin– “I got phone calls from my friends congratulating me,” she told PEOPLE. “But I felt like, ‘You’re congratulating me on a failed marriage?’ I knew what they were getting at, because I am starting over and cutting ties from something that was really dragging me down, but it was a rough day. I wasn’t prepared for the intensity of the emotion involved.”
Kate is now moving on and even open to finding new love.“I’m not going to rule it out,” she said. “But right now it’s not my focus. Being alone at the end of every day, I’m not liking that – it’s been a long time, and I feel that loneliness. But I’m not going to go running in the direction of finding someone.”
The Jon & Kate Plus 8 mom however makes it clear that her kids remain her number one priority. “I’ve got to get my kids back on track, my career back on track and my family back on track,” she said making it clear that her kids are “really struggling” with their dad’s absence. “They start counseling in the next two weeks,” she said. “I’m definitely seeing signs that it’s a major need at this point.”
Kate also acknowledges that money is an issue for her family. It has been rumored that Jon was ordered to pay $10,000 a month in child support. “I have a lot of debt to crawl out of,” she claimed. “Debt that shouldn’t be there. I have a lot of anger about that. But it’s nothing that good, hard work won’t fix.”
As for what’s next for Kate? “Now I get to start over in a new year, with a new self and new goals,” she said. “Oh yeah – and new hair!”
