In a battle of the hard-rocking against the famewhoring, my money will always be on Motley Crue. Iconic hairbander Nikki Sixx had enough of Kim Kardashian's vapid tweeting in light of the utter devastation in Oklahoma on Monday, and I have to applaud him. While many were expressing their sorrow at the horrific tornadoes that tore through the state, a clueless Kim was hawking her cosmetics brand.
Don't get me wrong, I know Kim meant no harm…she wasn't thinking. She never is. However, that's not really an excuse for her anymore. I'd be happy to give anyone a pass for being unknowingly insensitive, but she literally makes a career of it. Thankfully, Nikki said what the rest of the Twitterverse wanted to say.
Seeing that I love all things Law & Order: SVU, I love Ice-T. Coco? She likes to post bootylicious pictures on Twitter that make me slightly uncomfortable. However, when I watch Ice Loves Coco, I truly believe that Ice loves Coco…and she loves him. After all, they have been married for ten years…which is like a decade in Hollywood years. ;)
That said, Ice and Coco are on the rocks thanks to Coco's penchant for tweeting pictures. While Ice likes her butt shots, he doesn't like seeing pictures of his wife snuggled up on another man. Can you blame him? Awkward! What should one do when saddled with inappropriate Twit pics? He should take to Twitter to vent his frustrations, of course!
Kim Kardashian has a new fan. Don't worry…it's not me! The reality maven recently came under fire for a series of tweets about the discord in the Middle East. While I think that the backlash Kim received for trying to be nice (even I have to face the fact that she was being genuine…and that's hard to admit), she is at least finding solace in the comments of fellow (less famous) reality stars. Riding coattails much, Shahs of Sunset?
Reza Farahan, the openly gay and amazing breakout star of Bravo's latest hit, is coming to Kimmie Kakes aid in light of her attempt at international diplomacy. After getting death threats for her Israel and Palestine tweets, Kim is planning a goodwill trip to Kuwait and Bahrain. She heard they have awesome nightclubs. Reza thinks her Middle Eastern promotional tour is the greatest idea ever. Seriously, dude, you need to play it a bit cooler. After all, your show has already had a successful season with another on the way. No need to salivate over Kim like you don't know what it's like to be slightly famous.
He also posted one of Kim exiting his car, titling it “rare.” I’m not sure if he was referring to the car, his girlfriend, or the fact that he let her drive it to attract the attention of the paparazzi. You can see the scintillating Kimye pics below.
In other Kardashian news, Kim had a not so superb experience on British Airways. Kim seems to believe her luggage was hacked! Kim took to complaining to her ‘friends’ aka her zillions of Twitter followers to express her displeasure.”What happened to the days when you could lock your bags! We need to get back to that. There’s no sense of security & no trust!” she tweeted.
“Very disappointed in British Airways for opening my luggage & taking some special items of mine!Some things are sentimental ¬ replaceable,” she added. Yikes! I smell another Kardashian lawsuit! What on earth do you suppose anyone would want from Kim’s luggage? Was Kanye hiding in there?

While Jill Zarin and Alex McCord are officially out of the Real Housewives of New York City, they won’t go quietly into that famewhore night and continue to draw attention to themselves, no matter what. We’ll start with the grossest news. Somehow, Alex was able to get press for a very odd passage in her “urban parenting” book, which was released two years ago, Little Kids Big City. They weren’t getting enough hate messages on Twitter, so they decided to promote the passage below, describing husband Simon VanKempen‘s reaction to the au naturale birth of son, François. Alex describes her natural birth as:
“Once he was finally out of my body, I experienced a tsunami of endorphins that was almost orgasmic and I understand completely the stories other women have written about ecstastic birth. Simon was sitting behind me at the point of birth, and later when we untangled ourselves he discovered he’d actually ejaculated though hadn’t felt any of the normal lead-up to that.”

Lamar Odom has been under fire lately for his poor performance on the court with the Dallas Mavericks. Lamar was temporarily downgraded to the D-League and issued a public apology to his teammates for missing ten-days playing time in February for a family related absence. Reports have stated Lamar is upset that he was traded and is unhappy living in Dallas and that is effecting his on-court behavior.
A new report from In Touch Weekly (via their print edition) claims Lamar is blaming Khloe–and the Kardashian television dynasty–or his basketball troubles! Also upsetting the NBA star was filming Khloe & Lamar in the midst of the trade, their fertility issues, and a big move. In fact, insiders are insisting things are really bad for the seemingly unbreakable couple.
“He resents the show for taking his focus off the game,” a source close to Lamar reveals. The source adds that Lamar feels reality television and his association with the Kardashians has ruined his reputation! And Lamar is blaming the show for his trade to Dallas and the all the scrutiny over his personal life for his basketball woes.
As a result of his frustrations, Lamar is isolating Khloe and has even stopped being intimate with her! “He really shut down and told her to leave him alone for awhile,” the friend shares. Lamar is so upset he’s even stopped undergoing fertility treatments with his wife.
“Khloe is trying to stand by him, but it’s hard,” the source shares. “He’s always so angry.” Khloe’s rep denies any of the problems are true.
Also having man drama–isn’t she always–is sister Kim Kardashian! In Touch is also reporting that Reggie Bush decided not to buy the cow when he could get the milk for free! According to sources, while Kim thought they were getting back together Reggie was just using her for sex. “Reggie never really trusted her,” a source explains.
After considering rekindling his relationship with the reality harlot, Reggie decided against it when rumors emerged that Kim was being intimate with Kanye West after seeing his show in Paris. The rumors made Reggie realize Kim is simply not the woman for him! Kim was apparently hoping to make Reggie jealous so he would realize she’s the one, but instead it made him sick! Yikes – that backfired.
“Reggie’s been telling people that Kim’s disgusting for hooking up with Kanye,” a source says. “They deserve each other.”
And speaking of Kim and Kanye, OK! (via their print edition) is reporting the two are definitely getting hot and heavy. Apparently, following his fashion show–which Kim flew to Paris to attend–things got flirty! “Backstage, they were really touchy-feely, and she was blatantly giving him bedroom eyes,” an insider reveals. “Later, they secretly met for drinks at his hotel room.”
“She tries to say they’re just friends, but no one is fooled,” the insider adds. “Whenever she talks about him, she gets this Cheshire Cat grin on her face and then quickly changes the subject.” Kim has definitely had a case of mentionitis according to the source, as in she talks about Kanye aaaallll the time!
Insiders report that Kim started getting cozy with Kanye almost immediately following her impending divorce! “As soon as her and Kris Humphries‘ marriage went south, she and Kanye were back at it. And this trip to Paris has really heated things up.”
Although, Kim still isn’t over Reggie and is still hoping things will work out between them! “Kim’s still pretty hung up on Reggie.”
As for whether or not Kim and Kanye have a future together, it’s a possibility – at least according to Khloe! “I do think they might have that feeling for each other; I just don’t think it’s worked timing-wise,” she commented.
Finally, the Kardashians are doing what they do best in the face of trouble. Sell their bodies! Khloe and Kim have taken to Twitter to post nudie pics of themselves for a little attention. The class level is always so high with this group.
First up, the Kardashians are, unfortunately, adding a lingerie line to their Kardashian Kollection for Sears. Khloe tweeted a photo of the new racy ad which features herself, Kim, and Kourtney Kardashian (pre-pregnancy) modeling the wares. “OMG how fab is this new ad for Kardashian Kollection lingerie?!? Nothing makes me feel sexier, plus it’s all so comfy! Killing two birds with one stone! LOL,” Khloe tweeted. OMG, indeed.
Next, Kim who seemingly derives all of her self-esteem from ogling eyes, decided to whip out an old (heavily photoshopped) topless photo of herself for the twitterverse. I’m sure the parents of many of teen and pre-teen followers appreciated that! Feeling desperate and unable to sleep, Kim announced “Can’t sleep tonight,” and turned to Instagr.am for some comfort.
I’m pretty sure if I look up “pathetic” in the dictionary, I may find a photo of Kim next to the definition. Keep in mind Kim is 31 years-old and pulling trashy stunts like this for attention.
The photos are below! Warning… you may be traumatized after viewing, but I guess it’s nothing we haven’t seen before! I’m surprised these famewhores haven’t uploaded photos of gynecological exams yet. I shouldn’t give them any ideas…

Oh Atlanta… I am thankful to you for many reasons. You’ve got peaches. You’ve got the Falcons (Rise up! I know nothing about NFL teams except for their tag lines), you’ve got the best shopping for those of us in the South who live off I-85 (thank you Phipps Plaza!) who think fine apparel comes from Target (a lot of it does. IT DOES). And you’ve got the Real Housewives of Atlanta. Bless you fair Georgian city. Let’s get right to the newest RHOA gossip, shall we?
Just because she’s starring on Bravo’s sure to be latest hit Don’t Be Tardy for the Wedding with her new husband Kroy Biermann doesn’t mean that Kim Zolciak has forgotten her RHOA roots. After being the palest wig wearer for four seasons, many speculated she would be taking the Bethenny Frankel route and not returning to the show that made her a star household name.
Fear not, dear readers. Kim’stwitterverse (of course, where else?) has been abuzz with rumors that the fair Kim (no pun intended…okay, pun totally intended which is why I italicized) would not be returning to Bravo’s Atlanta franchise for season 5. On Friday, Kim pacified many a worried viewer, tweeting, “I’ll be back don’t believe rumors!!”
In fact, when many Kim followers started to voice their concern that the voluminous wig wearer was placating her masses, her twitters tweeters tweet peeps fans were relieved when Kim reiterated, “I’ll be back!!! Xxx”
Even though there is no official word from Bravo as to the season five cast, I, for one, can rest assured that if Kim’s wig doesn’t grace my screen next season, I can hopefully watch a twitter inspired video network of her future life. #trademarkedandregisteredsaidtwittervideofeedsobackoffpeoplewhowanttobeonsharktank
In other, and equally important RHOA news, Phaedra Parks is speaking out on eurweb.com about her place on the show and her new career as a funeral director.
As we all know, Phaedra isn’t just a reality star, she’s a savvy business woman and attorney. And due to that, she’s hoping that the show serves as an advertisement for her new other worldly business ventures. It appears that she was picked up for the show just in time to realize her true dream.
Phaedra tells the site, “It wasn’t that I had so much of a desire to be on the Real Housewives of Atlanta. It came at a great time. I was on bed rest. I was pregnant and it was a good opportunity for me to really expand my brand because I had produced TV shows.”
She continues, “I am an entertainment attorney, but I had never been in front of the screen so I understood all the workings of reality except for being a true cast mate. So it gave me an opportunity to say ‘Hey, I have diversified and I can do every part of TV now.’ I know the legal side. I know the technical side and I know the artist side of it.’”
While it’s easy for viewers to see that being a part of the show was a big jump start for Phaedra, she is quick to admit that viewers are the the ones who make the call as to who is popular, who is hated, who needs to stay, and who needs to go. Regardless, Phaedra is very happy with the part she’s played in the franchise and shares what she believes to be the most important aspect of her time with Bravo.
Phaedra asserts, “I think as black people, we have to stop saying this show represents our whole race. We have to vote with our viewership and say ‘On the show we want to see professionals. We want to see mothers. We want to see whatever it is that you actually want to see…[u]nfortunately, as viewers we have sort of bought into the stereotypes that the mass media has shown us for years and we glorify it. One of our biggest characters on there is probably very stereotypical of what we want to admonish as a people, but people love to say ‘Oh we love to see her cut up because that’s what we’re tuning in to see.’”
Amen, Phaedra. I have always thought she brought the comic relief (pickle photo shoots and baby poop, anyone?), but I love to hear her intelligent side give the general opinion of the show. She is, of course, totally correct… people want drama. Sadly, we wouldn’t be tuning in in droves to see the women succeeding in their professional lives. We just like to see Nene Leakes and Kim go at it. #SadForUs
“It’s unfortunate, but I think we have been programmed to want to see drama,” Phaedra continues. “We want to see discord. And when you see people getting along, instead of us actually praising ‘Oh wow, they’re getting along. There’s teamwork. There’s camaraderie. There’s things that’s positive about us as black women,’ people will say ‘Oh, that’s boring. That’s so boring. We don’t want to see that.’ I think we sort of went in a direction where we subscribe to drama and we appreciate that more than sensible behavior.”
In the interview, Phaedra veers away from the show and discusses her dream to own and operate a funeral home. I have to say that for once I don’t think this is a story line Bravo was smart enough to think up on its own, let alone encourage. No offense Andy Cohen, but I do think this has been the long time brainchild of Phaedra herself.
The star speaks candidly about her passion for owning her own mortuary. Phaedra states, “I developed a big desire to be in the funeral home business about five or six years ago. I had a lot of friends that passed away and I was the person that would plan their homegoing services, so that’s how the interest started.” She reveals, “The funeral home I’m going open will be fabulous and the services will be a celebration of life. It will be a family business. My husband, my mother, and my brother will be involved. It’s going to be a great legacy we can leave for our son.”
Bless you, Phaedra. I wish you had been around when I had to plan the funerals of family members. No, I am not Phaedra’s biggest fan, but I do have to applaud what seems like a sincere effort to follow her passion. Bottom line, I do think that if this was the last season we saw of RHOA, ten years from now Phaedra would be embalming our loved ones. And that’s solid on her part.
Finally, turning away from the macabre, I have new cast members to report on…or not report on, as the case may be. Thankfully the Atlanta Journal Constitution is relaying that CNN magnate Ted Turner (the same man who is not, I repeat happily is NOT, Marlo Hampton’s rich older sugar daddy)’s daughter Laura Turner Seydel has been approached by Bravo to join the fifth season.
While she made an appearance on a recent episode to tout her charity, Laura is however way too busy not being uber-dramatic actually doing volunteer work to have her world filmed for the Bravo series.
The site reports that while she did enjoy her minutes in the limelight, she will be turning down Bravo’s offer. Her spokesperson Denise Elsbree claims, “[Laura] really enjoyed that. It was fun. She was able to promote Captain Planet. She works hard to get the message out about the group’s different initiatives.”
After graciously declining Bravo’s invitation, her spokesperson (how many times do I get to quote the actual spokesperson – not a ‘source’ or an ‘insider’ when referring to Bravo-lebrities? Answer: never) states, “[Laura] has a really complicated schedule. She’s on all sorts of boards of foundations and travels all the time. She’s flattered to be considered but there’s no way she could do it.” More respect for you, Mrs. Seydel, more respect.
If you have digested all of this wonderful RHOA info, then clearly you are ready for a preview of tonight’s episode which airs on Bravo at 9PM ET. It’s the third installment of the “ladies’” trip to South Africa and the drama is still high between Marlo and Sheree. When Nene is the voice of reason in screaming match, you know it’s bad! The smalls head to Sheree’s friend’s for dinner while the talls head to Nobu. There is a good deal of fire juggling and Sassafras. The smalls try to set up Kandi with a struggling actor and model, but she didn’t come all the way to Africa to find someone who is fakes it till they make it. With the talls, Cynthia is disappointed that she is with the group that doesn’t want to soak up any culture. Nene eats her sushi with a fork. Can’t wait! A preview clip is below.

Taylor Armstrong has been all over the media promoting her book (which has been released to less than stellar reviews according to Amazon), and getting a lot of criticism for allegedly fabricating claims of serious domestic abuse, mainly because fans–and now the media–are starting to wonder why there is no proof! Taylor had yet to provide medical records, police reports, or third-party testimony corroborating her claims, and many of her late husband’s friends and family members are speaking out accusing her of blatant dishonesty!
In an effort to combat detractors and prove that abuse actually happened in her marriage and drum up publicity for her newly released memoir Taylor released her medical record on her Facebook Page. The record is associated with last summer’s eye injury.
Announcing with a Tweet her intentions to release the document, Taylor stated: “For those who continue to say I’m lying. Ur harming women who suffer n silence making them even more afraid 2 speak up & get help. So… I’m releasing my medical records on my FB page in a few minutes.”
Taylor’s record from the Beverly Wiltshire Advanced Imaging Center stems from a June 22, 2011 appointment and classifies her injury as “Trauma and Right Orbital Fracture,” with the treatment including “reconstruction in the coronal and sagital planes.”
“Here’s the first record from the imaging center who examined my eye. Despite what the doubters have said, I will say again — this was not an elective, cosmetic surgery. More to come later,” she wrote.
“I’m not doing it because I have to. I’m doing it because I want to. Calling someone who has been abused a liar is abusive,” she added. Taylor’s medical records do not indicate how she received the injuries or what caused her eye damage, but they certainly substantiate claims that she did not have plastic surgery. Taylor has not released records related to any of her other massive claims of abuse, as chronicled in her book.
I, for one, have never doubted she damaged her eye. The question most people have is what caused the injury. I once severely bruised my orbital plane by banging my head on the roof of my car while wearing sunglasses! Now, of course, this does not mean Taylor was not abused or that this injury was not caused by domestic abuse–I still believe there was mutual abuse in that marriage–but many fans have difficulty believing her, since timelines and stories do not add up. Plus, Taylor has made claims unrelated to abuse that have been proven untrue.
Shortly after releasing the document to a barrage of comments still questioning the authenticity of her claims, Taylor removed it, stating the negative attention was detrimental to abuse victims. Reality Tea obtained a copy of the document and it is below.
“Thank you for all of the support. I’m taking this doc down for now. Because of the hateful comments it’s going to discourage other victims. It’s so awful that people still make excuses. If someone says they’re being abused. believe them. If they go one step further to show proof, don’t abuse them even further by calling them liars, or saying things like ‘doctors can be bought, ‘she could’ve fallen down’, etc. I’m deeply concerned about some of the posters on here and on Twitter,” she wrote.
“I’m glad this abuse topic is a hot one and is being brought out into the light. It’s shown me and others why it’s so hard to get out. Doubters, non-believers, name-callers and unsupportive people are also abusers as they keep the cycle spinning. Don’t be one of those people. This conversation will continue…,” she announced on Facebook.
I wonder if Taylor removed the records in the hopes that she could sell portions of them. I know that sounds cynical, but she has openly stated she needs money and this is obviously a hot topic of interest to many. She did not hesitate to sell the corresponding photos, released in September, after she filed for divorce and shortly before Russell Armstrong took his own life.
I personally believe there is little to nothing Taylor can do to salvage her credibility with fans at this point. Many people simply do not respond well to her character and her behavior. In addition, her actions following Russell’s suicide–particularly agreeing to go through with the storyline of RHOBH–did not sit well with fans. Taylor has proven herself dishonest in the past and her actions do not substantiate her claims that she was a victim (her violent, aggressive, short-tempered approach to her co-stars, for instance).
Taylor has faced constant scrutiny as numerous viewers of the show have questioned both her motives and her honesty concerning what took place in her marriage. As a result, last month Taylor received death threats on Twitter by user Hardboiledpeggs. The disturbing Tweets, threatened both Taylor and her daughter Kennedy. On Jan. 29, @Hardboiledpeggs tweeted: “See u on February 7 ill be there with a book and a rope so i can kidnap u,” to which Taylor responded by saying: “Don’t ever contact me again.” The user, now deleted, then made other threats towards Kennedy.
After an investigation it was discovered that a teenaged girl in New Jersey, who is suffering from mental illness, made those threats. RadarOnline is now reporting that Taylor is considering dropping the charges if the girl seeks help. “Taylor is willing to drop the charges if the girl gets serious mental health counseling,” a law enforcement insider reveals. “Taylor wants that to be done in the juvenile courts in New Jersey, so that the girl will have to be accountable.”
“Taylor is extremely grateful to the FBI for identifying the culprit.” The FBI reportedly took the investigation “very seriously,” as Taylor had a book signing scheduled in New Jersey on February 7th. No one was injured at the signing and increased security was added.
Finally, it seems the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star has moved on! Taylor was recently spotted on another date with a mystery man, who not only bares a striking resemblance to Russell Armstrong, but also looks eerily similar to a man she was seen on a date with last month!
Taylor and the unknown gentleman were seen leaving Buddakan Restaurant in NYC. Taylor is in NYC to make the rounds for her new book. As they were leaving the mystery man had his hand on the small of her back, escorting her out the door. Photos below! According to witnesses they were quite cozy over dinner and it certainly appeared to be a date. Was Dr. Sophy standing by to check this man’s mental sanity?
Taylor has repeatedly stated she is not dating anyone, but Taylor says a lot of things… so we’ll see. As Brandi Glanville said, “It’s been like a hot minute!,” but you know what – good for her if she’s happy!
