In probably what is one of their best moves in the past few months, TLC’s Jon & Kate Gosselin have now decided they will no longer speak to the media about their family issues.

The couple states the following in a statement posted on TLC’s website – “During this very difficult time we will be working to focus solely on the needs of our family. This includes no longer commenting publicly or reacting to media stories and speculation.”

They continue, “Our goal is to do the very best for our children and that will be done as privately as possible…We appreciate the understanding, support and well wishes from so many. Thank you.”

TLC also announced last week that the show would be going on hiatus until Aug. 3 to give the family “some time off to regroup.”

This is definitely a smart choice on both parties. It’s time for them to shut up, and focus on strengthening their family during this divorce.

The Real Housewives of New York and New Jersey were in attendance for the taping of Bravo’s Fashion Show season finale. As you can see from the above photo, the other New Jersey housewives were sure to keep their distance from Danielle.

“At this morning’s taping for the “Fashion Show” finale at Cipriani Wall Street in NYC, “The Real Housewives” of both New York and New Jersey sat together in the audience while Danielle was seated apart from the group. When asked to get together for a picture, Danielle’s inclusion was “very awkward,” according to a source in the audience.”

According to a new report, Dancing With The Stars judge Len Goodman was diagnosed with cancer back in March. He however kept it a secret until the season ended.

Len who is also the head judge on the British version of the reality show called Strictly Come Dancing, had surgery to remove a cancerous tumor in his prostate gland three weeks ago without telling any of his colleagues.

“I have had the surgery now,” Goodman, 65, said. “Everything is gorgeously good. I will be back in September for sure.”

Goodman says he is feeling better already, and is planning on returning to DWTS this fall.

The Bachelor/DWTS’s Melissa Rycroft Is Engaged!

The good news keeps on coming for Melissa Rycroft. The former Bachelor and Dancing With The Stars contestant is now engaged to Dallas insurance agent Tye Strickland.

The two got engaged this weekend. It might seem rather quickly for The Bachelor fans, but the two have actually dated on and off for 2 years. They began dating once again after Jason Mesnick infamously dumped Melissa on national television.

Melissa has since gone on to excel on DWTS, and recently got a job as a correspondent on GMA (Good Morning America).

It seems being dumped by Jason might have been the best thing to ever happen to Melissa. Wondering what Jason is up to nowadays? He and Molly however seem to be making it work. The two were still a couple as of Late May.

The Real Housewives of NJ Returning For 2nd Season!

NJHousewives

Good news Real Housewives of New Jersey fans! Life&Style magazine is now confirming that the series will be returning for a second season. This does not come as a surprise as the finale episode was the highest rated ever for the Housewives’ series.

According to the story, filming is set to begin next month. An insider revealed, “They’re doing a second season, and it’s going to be crazier than the first. It’s going to explode.”

Can the 2nd season top the table flipping 1st season? We shall see. It will also be interesting to see what Bravo does, as all four of the ladies want absolutely nothing to do with Danielle. Jacqueline has even gone on record saying she never wants Danielle to see her new born son. Not that we can blame any of them.

No they are not married, at least that’s what we think. Gretchen Rossi and boyfriend, Slade Smiley, however seem to have taken some wedding pictures for a professional photographer known as Tracie Taylor.

We hope they’re modeling shots. They look like modeling shots. The 5th season of The Real Housewives of Orange County is currently being filmed. Between their cast mate Vicki Gunvalson being photographed getting her ass tattoed, and sitting on random guy’s’ lap, we think this upcoming season is bound to be a good one.

We also reported last week that Jeana Keough will be returning for the 5th season.

Kendra, 24, wore more than $100,000 worth of platinum and diamond jewelry by designer Michael Barin. She is said to have personally selected the 4.25-carat platinum drop earrings ($47,000), the 2.5-carat platinum pendant ($33,700) and the 4.5-carat bracelet ($21,000).

NY Housewives’ Jacqueline Explains Why She Ended Friendship With Danielle

Things have taken a much sour turn for Jacqueline Laurita and Danielle Staub since the taping of the reunion show, as Jacqueline has now ended her friendship and all contact with Danielle.

The Real Housewives of New Jersey star spoke to US last week making this telling quote, “I am not friends with Danielle.” But she doesn’t stop there, “She has never seen the baby, nor will I ever show her. I learned my family was right about her all along.”

Jacqueline has now gone into further detail about why she had to end the friendship, and you’ll be surprised it has nothing to do with her in-laws, Caroline and Dina Manzo.

“Danielle knows exactly why we are not friends anymore. She did something HORRIBLE behind the scenes to destroy Dina and my family. We have PROOF of it. I wish I could say what it is, but that’s Dina’s call. The other reasons were after seeing the show I got some threatening phone calls from Danielle. She didn’t like what I had to say about her on camera so she flipped out on me. I honestly didn’t think that I said anything that bad. Sometimes you get cut off from finishing a sentence when it comes to TV as well, and I had tried to explain that to her. I didn’t appreciate the way she spoke to me. She told me to stay away from her and her “real” friends. I still don’t know what she was talking about. I certainly haven’t spoke to any of her friends about anything because I don’t even know what I would have spoke about. I don’t even know her friends. The night before the reunion show she called my sister-in- law to try to turn her against me with lies! I didn’t appreciate that either. I have heard all over town that she is trashing me and plans to “bring me down,” whatever THAT means. It’s enough for me to know that I don’t need someone like that in my life that could turn on me so quick because they don’t like my opinions when asked about their lifestyle.”

That was very telling and I must say I can’t blame Jacqueline. I used to have some sympathy for Danielle because I felt the Manzo sisters were ganging up on her, but my opinion of her has since changed.

I truly believe she thrives on the drama, and is simply very delusional as well as pathological. She also seems to always be the victim in all of her personal conflicts.

She does seem like a toxic human being, plus what 46 year old mother in her right mind makes a sex tape with her 26 year old boyfriend? She overall seems like a very tragic human being, who thrives on attention no matter how negative or detrimental it is to others around her.

New Interview With Big Rig From Daisy of Love!

Daisy-of-love-Big-Rig

Jeremiah Riggs aka Big Rig, was the latest contestant to be eliminated from Daisy of Love. The MMA fighter discusses his elimination, his thoughts on Daisy’s reaction to his son, his missing teeth and his new girlfriend (Marcia from Rock of Love Bus & Charm School 3) in his new interview with VH1.

Below are excerpts from this interview –

It seemed like you were really upset after being eliminated.

Yeah, I was. I ain’t gonna lie to you. It sucked, you know? I don’t really know how to explain it. I guess when you know you’re the better person, don’t no one like to just necessarily lose. I sure as f*** don’t.

Was it just a matter of losing the game, or were you upset at all about not being able to get closer to Daisy?

For the time given and spent, yeah. What can you say when you got 20 other people and you’re all trying to get her attention? You only have so much time anyways and you have to make the best of it. I believe I did that by all means. It’s just, you know…she’s gonna do what she wants to do.

It did seem that you were really into her. You said you were falling in love with her.

I was. It was real and everything. She’s a cool girl. I liked her, just the presence of her and everything. Just a really good vibe. When you’re feeling good things, why not express the way you feel?

What did you think about her reaction to you giving her the picture of your son?

Not saying that it was a bad reaction, but she’s got to understand that I’m a package deal. And I do it the same with any other girl. I got to let them know that I come with more than just a bang.

Real Housewives Star, Alex McCord’s Advice To The Gosselins

simon-alex-400

The Real Housewives of New York star, Alex McCord has decided to weigh in and advice Jon and Kate Gosselin after a recently publicized divorce filing.

Alex McCord, 35, and husband of nearly 10 years, Simon van Kempen, say that the key to staying together as a family while starring on TV show is to ensure your relationship is top priority.

“Remember that you [and your husband] were there first,” McCord told PEOPLE at the I Heart Gen Art 15th Anniversary benefit in New York City on Wednesday. “Remember that part of what makes raising your children a successful operation is having a successful relationship. And if you are not happy, I … guarantee you will foist that off on your kids and they will pick up on it.”

McCord and van Kempen, who have two young boys Johan and Francois, aged 5 and 3 respectively also offered some words of advice for other reality TV couples.

“Obsessively communicate,” McCord says. “Tell each other everything — the good, the bad and the ugly. Today, even I [thought to myself], ‘You can either just tell him, or you can sit and let it fester’ — and that’s when you get into trouble. So just come out with it, whatever it is.”

In a final advice, “Look out for your marriage as much as you look out for your kids,” adds van Kempen.
