Oh, Melissa Gorga — relax. The Real Housewives of New Jersey star is furious about all the allegations that she is an ex-stripper! So mad, in fact, she is threatening legal action against anyone who accuses her of dancing in her underwear — except while she’s performing “On Display,” I presume?

Retaliating against Angelo Vrohidis’ interview alleging that Melissa was a stripper at Lookers nightclub in Elizabeth, NJ; Melissa claims she can “prove” she was nothing of the sort by producing payroll sheets which list her as a “bar maid.” TMZ is reporting that Melissa’s lawyer obtained a “sworn affidavit” from club owner Chris Kontos that states Melissa “worked solely in the capacity as a bartender.” A copy of that affidavit is below.

The affidavit denies that Angelo ever managed Melissa, then Melissa Marco (her maiden name), during her part-time employment at Lookers and that her actual manager was named Larry Guarino, who previously stated: “She was a bartender for a couple of months years ago, it was such a short time. She was never ever a dancer.”

Melissa’s lawyer, James Leonard Jr, is warning the media and any would-be claimants that if they continue to besmirch Melissa’s reputation they will be sued! “At this time we are aggressively pursuing the commencement of litigation against any and all individuals, in any jurisdiction, who have or continue to disseminate false statements against Melissa Gorga.”

Apparently her quest for fame and the constant accusations about her past has taken its toll on Melissa’s marriage to Joe Gorga as she recently confessed to HollywoodLife, that it’s been stressful.

“This year, to be honest with you, I feel like there is a lot of stress from the show and being in the public eye,” Melissa revealed, while attending the Reeve Foundation Magical Evening Gala at NYC’s Cipriani Wall Street. ”All I want from my husband is to just… I just want to make sure we keep this bond that him and I have.”

“I don’t want to let anything or any person break it,” she added. “That to me is the most important thing because we had an amazing life before we entered this show. And we still do and I don’t want to let anything break it. I know this business can break you sometimes.” Perhaps she now understands how sister-in-law, Teresa Giudice feels…

Here’s my opinion: Melissa has a right to not want her past exposed, whether she is embarrassed that she worked in a strip club (in any capacity) or not or just doesn’t want people digging into her past, but she went on a national television show to expose her “real life” so she has to expect curiosity from the public beyond just what she wants us to see.

We know Melissa wants the world to view her as the happy and privileged wife of a prominent real estate developer, a loving mother, backstabbing sister-in-law and a hopeful singer — and we do see her that way, but like all of us Melissa has a past. Perhaps it’s a salacious past that she is ashamed of, perhaps not.

But here’s the thing, Melissa has no problem exposing, commenting on and discussing Teresa’s embarrassing moments, negative behaviors, family discord as well as financial issues to the media and the world. So is it really fair of her to demand that no one discuss her own situations? She didn’t mind when everyone was accusing Teresa of all sorts of misdeeds, but now she’s suing anyone who says something about her she doesn’t want to hear and getting into Twitter fights with people who don’t like her song? #JayMohr.

Melissa should let stripper-gate go. Drawing more and more attention to it pretty much guarantees that the media, the networks, the blogosphere are going to keep speculating about it. Melissa has a lot going for her and seems to have a pretty lovely life. She should focus on the positives. We know Melissa reads RT (she Tweeted that she loves it) so a little advice from me: the truth will come out whatever it is, so go practice singing and accept that you’re “On Display!”

THOUGHTS ON THE LATEST? DO YOU BELIEVE MELISSA WAS A STRIPPER OR JUST DESPERATE TO PROVE THAT IT’S ALL A LIE? THOUGHTS ON MELISSA’S COMMENTS ABOUT HER MARRIAGE?


The Real Housewives of Atlanta stars are at it again and causing drama all over the place! NeNe Leakes is Tweeting up a storm about her reaction to ReDICKulous at c0-star Kandi Burruss‘ birthday party — even going so far as to call out Andy Cohen! Simmer down NeNe!

Yes the NeNe is Tweetin mad that people are calling her a hypocrite for leaving Kandi’s party in light of dip ‘n’ dick when she herself did a lil dancing back in the day!

See while NeNe pretended to be scandalized, reDICKulous actually called into WWHL‘s Aftershow and revealed he had danced for NeNe at least three times prior to Kandi’s birthday — including when she introduced him at Miami Pride Day! Pull those eyes out of the rented Birkin, Ms. Leakes — you are called out! Taking it to the Tweets, NeNe claims it just wasn’t the time or the place for ‘DICK’s show — especially with Mama Joyce present!

NeNe is of course disputing a relationship with reDICKulous, Tweeting Andy: “I host lots of gay events & introduce whoever they tell me 2! I’ve never had a lap dance from any male stripper!” So no one has any pictures to prove her wrong? And she takes issue with how sexy (re: straight up porno) reDICKulous’ act got!

“We don’t do no ish like that @ Wanda’s Playhouse. That was very sick & perverted ! #noclass<Right,” she fired back against allegations that she knew reDICKulous from her own stripping days! And putting her boss on blast, NeNe wondered if Andy’s mom (who texted him that the display was “disgusting”) would watch a strip tease! “@BravoAndy would u b @ a party wit ur mom, aunt or people u do business & watch a stripper suck his…. N front of every1?”

“People r so shady! I wonder if @BravoAndy would have watched him wit his mom & co-workers there,”she continued! Well, Andy responded agreeing with The Nen! “You know that Evelyn would’ve grounded me<Right! For life LOL,” he replied. NeNe wants to know why all the focus was on her since it was Kandi’s party and Phaedra who brought the “gift” — all she did was hightail it out of there and drive home blind! Safety first! A screen shot of some of Nene’s tweets are below -


As for why Kim Zolciak did not attend Kandi’s reDICKulous birthday party she Tweeted that she was “very pregnant” and gave birth a few days later! So it had nothing at all to do with refusing to film with NeNe?

Speaking of Kim, Sweetie Hughes, Kim’s long suffering former assistant is confirming she no longer works for the Wigziack-Biermann fam! Sweetie verified the split on Twitter, responding, “yes it’s true” when asked by a fan. Sweetie did not give any details about what may have lead to the dissolution of the relationship. Hopefully she just found a different job, but they are still friends!

Also, no word if Sweetie will be featured on Kim’s spin-off, Don’t Be Tardy For The Wedding, which premieres this spring on Bravo and Senor Cohen promises is “a lot of fun.”

“It’s a totally different vibe [than Bethenny Getting Married], he told WetPaint. “I was talking to Bethenny [Frankel] about it the other day. I was like, ‘You are going to love this show!’ Kim is Kim and Bethenny is Bethenny. It’s like, they’re from two different planets.”

If you’re expecting Kim’s permanent departure from the wrath of NeNe, Andy assures us that’s not the plan! “We’re doing this limited series, but I like Kim on the mothership.”

THOUGHTS ON THE LATEST RHOA DRAMA? IS NENE OVER-REACTING OR DOES SHE MAKE SOME VALID POINTS? WHY DO YOU THINK SWEETIE IS NO LONGER WORKING FOR KIM?


The crazy continues with the ladies of the Real Housewives of New Jersey and even though the cameras aren’t rolling sisters-in-laws Melissa Gorga and Teresa Guidice are at it again!

While Teresa has been busy filming Celebrity Apprentice, Melissa has taken the opportunity to make the media rounds and do some interviews about her music “career”, her family and of course the show — specifically how she gets along with Teresa! Speaking to Fishbowl NY at Michael’s restaurant in NYC, Melissa again talked about the season three reunion and the Posche Fashion Show drama that will air in season four.

“We had just had a huge blow up the night before, and that was what was on everyone’s mind. It was so hard not to say anything. That’s why Jacqueline [Laurita] wasn’t there,” she explained about the season three reunion. “It was very confusing for us, and we were constantly trying not to say things about things that hadn’t aired yet.”

“Bravo is so sorry they shot them back to back,” she expects us to believe. “I don’t think they are ever going to do that again.” As for what happened, Melissa simply states that Teresa “tried to set me up”, claiming she is back to her “old tricks.” All of this is interesting because in several recent interviews featured on Reality Tea, Melissa has claimed the sisters-in-laws are in a better place now, getting along well and working on their relationship. She also said the show has “brought them closer together.”

This sudden change of heart wouldn’t have anything to do with a recent interview given by her ex-boss, Angelo Vrohidis, who claims Melissa was a stripper? In that same interview Angelo says Teresa had nothing to do with Melissa’s past being exposed.

Melissa goes on to add that her husband Joe Gorga, finds Teresa’s behavior “disgusting” but of course Melissa insists she is supportive of her husband’s family coming together. “The children don’t know about any of this stuff and they don’t care. They just want to be together. They really love each other. That’s what I don’t get. Why does she [Teresa] think I’d want to keep my husband away from his family? It makes no sense,” Melissa mused.

While denying that Teresa is “jealous” of her, Melissa is confused about why Teresa is bothered by her success. “I don’t know why it bothers her that I’m doing what I’m doing as a result of the show. It doesn’t take anything away from what she’s done. I think it bothers her that I even exist!”

Melissa conducted another interview with Mommyhood to Hollywood (wait – she’s a Hollywood Mom?) where she calls her relationship with Teresa a “work in progress”and again stresses it’s all about the children. “I know in my heart that I have done everything I can do to help her relationship with her brother and from this point on it’s between the two of them,” Melissa revealed.

The controversy continues for the hopeful pop star as AllAboutTRH blog (the same site that interviewed Melissa’s ex-boss) recently received an email from a person affiliated with Melissa’s publicist. Melissa is represented by “Illumination PR”. In this email, written by Will Love an entertainment reporter, he has some interesting things to say about Melissa! Including that he met Melissa when her publicist, Robyn, gave him an opportunity to meet the infamous “furtive confidante” of Danielle Staub at the 2010 Posche Fashion Show (featured in season 3).

Will goes on to describe Melissa as rude and claims that her inner circle (her sisters, I suppose) refer to her as “Lady Gorga.” Oh lawdy! Will also claims that Melissa, along with her sisters and Robyn, had a vendetta against Teresa! He claims Melissa and Robyn blacklisted Teresa, along with Kim D from a “Fashion & Beauty Week” Charity night and attempted to convince Bravo not to film the annual Posche Fashion Show in lieu of this event.

You can read the email in its entirety at AllAboutTRH and decide for yourself what you think. I’m inclined to believe there is some truth to it, but also some embellishments.

Moving on Teresa has apparently been thriving in her new gig, Celebrity Apprentice and according to her Tweets is getting along famously with Donald Trump Jr, Aubrey O’Day and Lisa Lampanelli! Anyone else disappointed about that — I was hoping for some drama!

Teresa recently appeared on The Wendy Williams Show where they discussed RHONJ, of course, and Teresa revealed she hasn’t spoken to Melissa “in months.” Regardless, Teresa is confident that her family will be okay and after reassuring Wendy that she loves her brother, she added “we’re going to get past all of this.” Teresa said she spent Thanksgiving with her husband, Joe Giudice‘s family.

But Teresa isn’t all that focused on family drama for the moment, because her third cookbook Fabulicious: Fast & Fit is in production and she has been promoting overtime! Teresa recently did a photo shoot for the upcoming book, which she advertises contains “sexier food.” She also released a preview of some of the recipes on her website.

“I thought you’d like to see some of our behind-the-scenes shots. Here are a couple of pictures of me prepping food, and me and my girlfriends. (I’m sooo happy to report my new cookbook is completely Housewife-free! If you can’t take a joke, you’re “fired”!),” she wrote.

And proving that she’s still Teresa underneath it all she Tweeted that the power went out during the shoot, but things got back on track when they found a generator, “Thank you Jesus!…Sign of the Cross backwards…” Ok, that’s funny — admit it!

Photos from Teresa’s shoot are below. Fabulicious: Fast & Fit hits stores in May 2012, apparently you can pre-order it on Amazon RIGHT NOW. Hurry!

THOUGHTS ON THE LATEST? IS MELISSA SINCERE ABOUT WANTING HER FAMILY TO COME TOGETHER OR DOES SHE CRAVE FAME? THOUGHTS ON WILL LOVE’S SCANDALOUS EMAIL? ARE YOU EXCITED ABOUT FABULICIOUS: FAST & FIT?

For those of you that believed the firing of certain Housewives meant the next season of Real Housewives of New York would feature less arguing, cattiness and back-stabbing, you may be out of luck! I mean they kept Ramona Singer on their payroll after all, and allegedly doubled her salary!

The NY Daily News is claiming feuding has already begun amongst the ladies, despite the addition of three new cast members who were supposed to bring a different atmosphere to one of the most popular series in the Housewives franchise. While insiders promise the show will be “totally different than last season,” that doesn’t appear to be the case! Suspected new Housewives Carole Radziwill, Heather Thomson and Aviva Drescher apparently wasted no time in choosing sides and waging battles!

With the foisting of veteran Housewives Jill Zarin, Alex McCord and Kelly Bensimon an insider is claiming that the remaining originals Ramona, LuAnn de Lesseps and Sonja Morgan have almost immediately started forming rivalries as well as new alliances with the newbies. Is this Survivor or Housewives — I’m confused?

“It’s Sonja, LuAnn and Heather vs. Aviva and Ramona,” the source reveals. “LuAnn and Sonja are now the queen bees of the show.” Does this mean an end to the dreaded (re: inappropriate and immature) Ramonja!?

Ramona and Aviva were friends prior to filming with some reports saying Ramona brought her into the show. Avivia’s previous relationship with Pinot have led her to take a “more neutral” stance in forming relationships with her other cast mates. Better watch out Aviva or your first season may be your last (see: Barshop, Cindy)!

A source reveals that one of the new ladies planned a cast-wide trip to London and everyone was included except Pinot! “Everyone was invited but Ramona,” says the source, adding that Ramona may have been excluded because she is getting “the diva-bitch edit this season.”

“Ramona is still a troublemaker,” says the source. “She delivers drama big time” in the upcoming season.

So, while the other Housewives were abroad celebrating freedom from Ramona Singer Pinot Grigio, Ramona soothed her hurt by throwing herself a “raucous” birthday lunch at Manhattan’s Bar Italia. “She had 24 of her closest friends there and did not seem to miss the other housewives one bit,” a guest reported. “So excited! Headed to my birthday luncheon at Bar Italia with 20 of my best girlfriends!!” Ramona Tweeted.

Oddly not included in the guest list was former blonde bestie Sonja – even though the two have birthdays close together! Sources tell the NY Daily News that there is now “tension” between the former besties.

I also noticed neither lady issued a Happy Birthday Tweet! Photos of the party from Ramona’s Twitter are below – noticeably absent are members of the Housewives cast! Noticeably present – some very scary plastic surgery!

Ramona’s party was not without her product promotions as her real friends surprised her with a pinot grigio themed cake. “We had it done by Heather Barranco Dreamcakes. It had an edible bottle of Ramona’s label of pinot and edible pieces from her True Faith jewelry line, all made of out hard sugar. The cake looked and tasted great.” It is pretty amazing!

After guests were forced to imbibe Pinot’s wine for the afternoon Turtle Time came out in full-force as everyone hit the dance floor to relive the glory days of Studio 54. “Ramona had a blast,” says the insider to Wetpaint. “We all did. We spent the afternoon eating, drinking and getting down on the dance floor!”

Did the party also feature a pinot grigio fountain? Because I’m pretty sure that’s all Ramona really wanted for her birthday! A photo of Ramona with her namesake cake and her wine is below. It’s Pinot-licious! If you’re into that sort of thing…

THOUGHTS ON THE NEWEST HOUSEWIVES FEUD? ARE YOU SURPRISED THE LADIES ARE FIGHTING ALREADY? ARE YOU AS SHOCKED AS I AM BY THE ALLEGED END OF RAMONJA?

THE PHOTOS ARE BELOW!

Oh these Atlanta ladies! In the latest round of Southern Hostility, Kim Zolciak is flinging every insult she can find at Cynthia Bailey! Girl must really be sipping on the margaritas as of late, because she is having some trouble keeping her comments to herself!

Kim’s, I mean, Kroy Biermann’s, ostentatious (re: tacky) baby shower may have been months ago, but she is still fighting mad at Cynthia and her husband, Peter Thomas for showing up over four-hours late and causing a scene with Phaedra Parks‘ husband, Apollo Nida! Oh, and for failing to give her a shower gift! I mean Kim was only registered for Louis Vuitton changing pad covers and diamond encrusted pacifiers – why is Cynthia so cheap?!

Taking to her Bravo blog, the Real Housewives Of Atlanta star speaks out about Peter’s behavior and blames Cynthia for not keeping her man in check! “The fact that Cynthia and Peter came twenty minutes before it was over, without a gift, and then Peter started some ridiculous fight was more of an insult than not showing up at all… It’s obvious Peter had an ulterior motive walking in there, because he said, ‘I hope we don’t get kicked out.’”

“I’m not mad at Apollo, because he was defending his wife. I would want Kroy to do the same for me,” Kim continues. “But Peter took the whole argument to another level and as a wife, Cynthia should have kept her man in check!”

“But if you haven’t noticed, Cynthia doesn’t speak unless she has permission from NeNe [Leakes] so it came as no surprise that she didn’t say anything to Peter.” Wow! “I certainly will not be inviting Peter or Cynthia to anything else,” Kim “Side Boob” Biermann added.

Kim didn’t stop there; she continued her onslaught through Twitter! “My baby shower was beautiful and then Peter shows up and causes a mess!!” she snapped. “Apollo really did hold his composure as long as he cud! He was defending his wife!”

Then, she called Cynthia boring and boasted about having the hottest hubby! Really, Kim – anyone else remember how “hot” Big Poppa was? “Ughh Cynthia….. Boring snoozefest!! I have the hottest househubby for sure!!!!!! #jealous” Kim commented, referring to last week’s WWHL poll questioning who is the hottest man in the ATL. “Hell yes Apollo and @biermann71 tied for hottest house hubby! No doubt @PhaedraParks and I r lucky!!”

As for Cynthia’s allegation that Kim actually didn’t get a wedding present, Kim claims that’s not true. She retaliated with a tweet slamming Cynthia and calling her a liar! “Cynthia is full of sh*t Kroy & I gave her card w/ cash 4 her wedding! We knew she was having financial problems so we figured she could use the $ instead of purchasing something she didn’t need!” Well, if Cynthia is so “poor” maybe Kim shouldn’t have expected a baby gift from her?

After basically insulting Cynthia on all levels and keeping it classy (cause that’s how Kim rolls), Kim did admit that both Peter and Apollo apologized for their behavior. “Wish ya all got to see everything that happened but that wud b hrs worth!” she explained. “For the record Peter did apologize as did Apollo!! We still had a good time!” Oh, well then were all the rude comments necessary, NeNe? Oh, whoops I meant Kim!

Cynthia, who was a guest on Wendy Williams this Wednesday, did not respond to Kim’s comments but Tweeted: “Never mind who is against you, just focus on who is with u.” On her own Bravo blog, Cynthia praised Kim’s shower and the relationship Kroy has with her daughters. She also reiterated that she was tardy for the party due to work!

Although Cynthia does confront present-gate! “Kim said I did not bring a present. I brought her the exact same present that she brought me to my wedding. Nothing. It took me hours to pick it out, and it was perfect.”

Surprisingly, NeNe has kept quiet about her BFF’s feud with Kim, instead Tweeting that last weeks episode was “soooo boring” without her in it! NeNe has been occupied guzzling the surely disgusting delicious Miss Moscato wine she is now producing and hanging out in NYC with Basketball Wives star Jennifer Williams. NeNe tweeted a photo of the two of them having drinks while son Brent spent Thanksgiving with his father, Gregg Leakes. Perhaps this divorce is real after all… The photo of NeNe and Jen is below!

Also, Kim tweeted a photo of her wedding jumpsuit (one of her three wedding outfits) and that photo is below as well!

Tonight the controversy continues with a new episode of RHOA. Phaedra attempts to mend fences with Kim over Apollo’s behavior at Kim’s shower. The basically drama-less Kandi Burruss finds herself in the hot seat with mama Joyce at her birthday party, where Phaedra gives her a memorable gift! Peter squares off with Cynthia’s sister leaving Cynthia torn between her husband and her sister.

And Sheree Whitfield is frustrated over the slow progress building the elusive Chateau Sheree – by the way there are some rumors circulating around Atlanta claiming Sheree never actually built said dream house. The Atlanta blog Tamara Tattles did some research and discovered it may have been a manufactured storyline for the show! In fact, The Nene tweeted: “She was frontin! It was never built,” after a fan tweeted to her asking how a “broke” Sheree could afford to build a new home. A preview of the upcoming episode is below.

Real Housewives of Atlanta airs on Bravo (9/10c) followed by an all-new WWHL (11/12c).

WHOSE SIDE ARE YOU ON: CYNTHIA’S OR KIM’S? SHOULD KIM LET THE BABY SHOWER DRAMA GO OR WOULD YOU STILL BE MAD? WHO DO YOU THINK IS THE HOTTEST MAN IN THE ATL?

CLICK THE CONTINUE READING BUTTON TO SEE THE PREVIEW & PHOTOS!


Real Housewives of Atlanta is having all kinds of drama and it seems to surround the very rich Ms. NeNe Leakes!

After feuding with co-star Sheree Whitfield in the season premiere and taking more heat on last Sunday’s episode, NeNe is taking to her Bravo blog… and Twitter… and every single talk show in the stratosphere to get her side of the conflict heard while her cast mates are distracted by Kim Zolciak’s million dollar sparklefest tacky as hell wedding.

In her new blog titled oh so subtly “Hateration”, NeNe announces just that: “Hateration is in full effect!” Oh lawd! And she has a little advice for Sheree and Kim: “I’m a tough girl. I worked hard to get where I am, and I have earned every bit of it! It’s going to take an army to bring me down, so keep trying haters, but it’s not going to work!” Something tells me they’re up for the challenge…

She followed that up by Tweeting: “I’m glad y’all get 2 see these chicks on their full time job which is HATING on me” hehe (ok, it’s kinda funny since neither Sheree or Kim have what one might call gainful employment, unless you count famecourting!)

NeNe continues by taking digs at pretty much all of her co-stars. “It looks like I was Kim’s birthday gift after all,” NeNe zings. “Kim claims to be happy, but then she sits around talking about me!” Well, the same could be said for NeNe sitting around talking about Kim. Be honest, Lady Leakes – you all talk about each other!

“These girls love to put false information out there. I love the fact that I’m the topic of these boring girls’ conversation all the time! According to these girls I don’t have anything! No friends, no furniture, no teef teeth, no man, no money. NOTHING!”

As for Sheree, NeNe tweeted: “False information! Sheree has been n2 it wit Me,Kim,Dwight & Lisa! Um the pot can’t call the kettle black,” regarding last Sunday’s comments from “Man-Sheree” that NeNe fights with everyone.

She also accuses Kandi Burruss of “playing both sides of the fence”. “She listens over here and runs back over there to dish it,” NeNe admonishes! “Kandi said I have this ‘angry black woman syndrome,’ but how would she know! I’m never around Kandi, and I am black, but definitely not angry!” I think Star Jones and LaToya Jackson might have a different opinion, but ok!

NeNe wants us to know her life is just grand and looking a lot better than certain co-stars lives! “I have girlfriends I’ve been friends with for twenty years. My house has just the right amount of furniture for me. My teeth are prettier than any of these ladies, and I didn’t get them done for free!”

“And I’ve been in the longest relationship of any of these ladies. Fifteen years to be exact,” she adds. Wait – is she or is she not divorcing? Although true that Gregg Leakes and her were married for 15-years until Bravolebrity came along… NeNe also claims the only reason her co-stars take issue with Cynthia Bailey is because she is “friends” with her!

Making it clear that all that Hateration is motivated by Jealousy with a capital J, NeNe announces: “I’ve had the most success of all these ladies!” In case you have forgotten, NeNe is “very very rich!”  though she is now insulting our intelligence by claiming she didn’t mean financial wealth when she stated she was very rich, instead claiming she meant she was rich spiritually! Evidently, when she said she was cashing Trump checks, she also meant in a spiritual manner! But anyway, Nene is so rich in fact she is proving it by producing a t-shirt with her new catchphrase.

Following in Alex McCord’s “Thug In A Cocktail Dress” success, NeNe announced on Twitter that fans will now be able to purchase an “I’m Very Rich Bitch” Swarovski crystal emblazoned shirt for the affordable price of $150! NeNe doesn’t want any of us non-rich people pretending otherwise, I guess. A photo of the over-priced, crappy t-shirt is below. If you want one without “bitch” she’ll custom make you one. Bloop, bloop!

THOUGHTS ON NENE’S BLOG? DOES SHE MAKE SOME GOOD POINTS ABOUT HER CO-STARS OR IS SHE ALSO GUILTY OF HATERATION? WHAT DO YOU THINK OF NENE’S NEW T-SHIRT? WOULD YOU BUY ONE?

BELOW IS A PICTURE OF NENE’S “I’M VERY RICH B*TCH” T SHIRTS!

In rumor round 8 zillion about the Real Housewives of New York firings, a new report is now alleging that Bethenny Frankel got her former best friend Jill Zarin axed from the show!

Bethenny has had a tough shakes of things lately, and there has been much speculation about her versions of the truth being you know, truthful, but is she really still so angry at Jill she would sabotage her career? Somebody thinks so!

Bethenny is the subject of a scathing new report by the New York Post which not only claims she plotted to get Jill fired from the show that made them both famous, but that she’s also a master manipulator, and that the real-life of Bethenny is totally different than what the world sees.

I’m not sure how reliable this unnamed source is and I’m also not sure I believe most of this article, but you can decide for yourself what you think.

“Every single person in her life is someone who is on her payroll, including her husband, Jason Hoppy,” the insider insists. “Bethenny’s whole agenda has been to keep it real, and none of it is real. It’s all planted stories and her trying to bury her enemies.”

“Everything she’s done, from what she did to Jill Zarin on the show with behind-the-scenes torture to what she’s doing now, is pure Bethenny.” The insider, who purports to be close to Bethenny, is not giving a reason for why Bethenny would still harbor such resentment towards Jill and claims that during her final season as a housewife, Bethenny refused to speak to Jill unless cameras were rolling and exacerbated a petty argument into a “full-blown war” in order to boost her popularity. That same insider also claims Bethenny manipulates Andy Cohen.

An unnamed media observer declares that Bethenny went into Housewives with a plan. “She had done a reality show, with Martha Stewart’s ‘The Apprentice,’ before any of the other housewives, so she was always 10 beats ahead.”

“She is the best publicist-marketer-hustler I’ve ever seen. She is PT Barnum. But the sad thing is the amount of people she’s thrown under the bus to get to where she is,” observer continues.

The article claims Bethenny “carefully manipulates reporters to meet her goals,” alleging that early on in her career, Bethenny would call gossip columnists to plant items that were either exaggerations or blatantly false, aka the rumor that she dated A-Rod. Several gossip editors reportedly instituted a “Bethenny ban” because her calls were so frequent.

“She dated WireImage’s photographer Kevin Mazur and made sure to get pictures on the red carpet before anyone knew who she was. She is the best publicist-marketer-hustler I’ve ever seen. She is PT Barnum. But the sad thing is the amount of people she’s thrown under the bus to get to where she is,” says a media observer.

The unidentified insider feels Bethenny’s days on top may be numbered as even those in her employ are tired of her “More, more, more, mine, mine, mine” attitude. “Being around her is like having chest pains,” the source explains. “She is a horrible, horrible screamer. Every person around her is feeling the anxiety. She goes from 0 to 60 in a second. You open the door, and you have no idea. It could be a storm, it could be a dozen roses.”

“I hate to say it, but as one of the producers from the show told me: ‘We’re just hoping it’s going to be, “Bethenny’s Getting a Divorce?” snipes the insider. “Because how long can this go on for?” the source comments on the fate of Bethenny’s show Bethenny Ever After. “The minute she stops being viable for Andy and making money, he’ll walk away from her just like he walked away from everyone else,” says the same insider who accuses her of manipulating Andy.

The source also alleges that Bethenny’s got Jill axed from RHONY. Does she really have that much pull??? Bethenny’s “whole game plan was to pull Jill down, and she did it and Jill got fired.”

Jill who has recently spoken out defending her former friend’s on-going troubles in the media (hey, she knows from experience), stated: “I hope she sees [the bad press] as a mere bump in the road and chalks it up to a lesson learned. Everyone makes mistakes but it is how you handle it that defines you.”

But when a fan Tweeted Jill a link to this article, writing: “This article confirms everything I always suspected about Bethenny & Andy Cohen! Vindication for @JillZarin at last!!” Jill responded, Tweeting back: “Sad day for me to find out.”

Jill later followed up with another Tweet pertaining to the article, remarking: “Haters will never believe truth. It would mean admitting they were wrong.” Bethenny has yet to comment on the accusations. It appears Jill is insinuating the article is accurate and Bethenny did get her fired… which all seems slightly absurd! Did Bethenny get Alex McCord and Kelly Bensimon fired as well? At the end of the day, I don’t believe Bethenny has enough pull at Bravo to get anyone fired!

THOUGHTS ON THE ARTICLE? WHAT DO YOU BELIEVE? IS THIS THE WORK OF A BITTER UNNAMED SOURCE TRYING TO TEAR DOWN BETHENNY’S SUCCESS OR TRUTHFUL INFORMATION?

According to a shocking new report, Bravo is planning to fire Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Taylor Armstrong!

The National Enquirer is reporting that Taylor will be getting the boot once the second season ends. The reason? Apparently Taylor became a “downer” on the show and her costars “complained to producers that she was constantly trying to steal the show.”

The mag adds that Taylor alienated her fellow RHOBH housewives with her nonstop ploys for pity and attention before the suicide tragedy. Even more surprising, Bravo has reportedly told Taylor of the plans to fire her. “Taylor is just a downer,” reveals an insider. “Consoling Taylor has become a full-time job for the rest of the women and this was all BEFORE Russell’s death!”

The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills was turning into the Taylor Armstrong therapy show. Whenever the wives are together, Taylor would somehow manage to start crying and complaining about her life,” adds the source. Yikes!

A source is however telling E! News that the story is false and that Bravo has not kicked Taylor off the show. Guess we will have to wait and see if Taylor is really off the show.

In other RHOBH news, now that he has a new show to promote and his ex-wife is eclipsing his celebrity, Kelsey Grammer is speaking out about his marriage to former RHOBH villainess, Camille Grammer! Among other things, he accuses her of threatening to end their marriage for years and states that appearing on RHOBH was the final straw for their relationship!

Kelsey tells interviewer Piers Morgan that Camille was the one who put the pesky idea of divorce in his head! “Camille asked for a divorce really almost the first day we were married,” Kelsey insisted. “If you say you want a divorce enough times, you’re going to get one.” Did she also ask him to cheat on her with a 20-something?

“I think she married me because I was ‘Frasier’,” Kelsey continues, contending that Camille was after his notoriety! Which may be true, but still!

Furthermore Kelsey explains his participation in RHOBH was a “parting gift” to his wife of 13-years, claiming the marriage was in trouble before filming began! “It was my way of saying, ‘Look, you always wanted to be famous. Here you go,’” maintaining that he knew their marriage would not survive once Camille decided to do the show.

Even more shocking, Kelsey admits: “I think what I was trying to do was sell it to myself,” he told Piers of the couple’s relationship. “There was this small voice in the back of my head saying, ‘This isn’t going to work.’ But I stuck to it.” Gee… what a class act. #sarcasm.

As for their divorce, Kelsey concurs his affair was wrong, but he wanted to support Camille in her attempts at fame. “I was trying to do some noble gesture to make the destruction of the previous marriage go easier somehow and that was a mistake,” he said of appearing on HW with her and attending the Tony Awards as a couple. “I should have walked home and said, ‘We’re done. You finally have everything you wanted, and I’ve found a new life.’”

And taking a jab at Camille’s success on Real Housewives, Kelsey snipes that reality TV isn’t a way to achieve real fame, but “you still get attention; you still get all those things that come along for the ride, which I think is what she was most interested in.”

Yeah, I’m going to file this interview under the category of “Things That Leave A Bad Taste In Your Mouth!” I hope neither of the ex-couple’s two children, which they are involved in a nasty custody dispute over, happened to view that interview!

As for Camille she is having none of his excuses! When a fan asked if she watched the interview, Camille responded: “No, I couldn’t watch. I had heard that he was going to be mean and disrespectful.” Poor Camille! Good for her for taking the high road in this latest chapter of their never-ending divorce!

While Camille didn’t have much to say about Kelsey’s callous interview, new Celebrity Apprentice contestant Lisa Lampanelli did! She Tweeted: “Kelsey Grammer: Camille married ‘Frasier’ not me. So she thought she married a pompous self-absorbed alcoholic. Nothing like Kelsey at all!” Buuurn!
