NY Housewives’ Bethenny Frankel Disses Jill Zarin!

There have been rumors that BFFs Jill Zarin and Bethenny Frankel were on the outs, and Bethenny now seems to be confirming these rumors with her recent comments.

Bethenny had some harsh words for her Real Housewives of New York City castmate, calling her recent actions “utterly embarrassing.” Those recent actions include Jill’s public outings with the likes of Jon Gosselin and Michael Lohan.

“Why would Jill be hanging with Jon Gosselin and Michael Lohan?” she asked of Jill’s escapades with the D-List dads in Southampton. “That was like an episode of ‘The Surreal Life.’ It is utterly embarrassing. I mean, honestly, Urkel should have come – and if Gary Coleman showed up, it would have been perfect.”

Bethenny doesn’t stop there. As she stirred up drinks she created in honor of celebs, she snapped “No!” when asked if she created a drink for former BFF Jill, “Jill doesn’t get a drink,” said Bethenny.

This isn’t too surprising as the pair have not been photographed together in recent months. I have also heard stories about Jill becoming too big for her britches. Some are saying she has become a total diva, and a nightmare to be around. I ready a story about her pulling the “Do you know who I am” outburst while she was waiting to get served at a restaurant. She seems to truly consider herself a celebrity, and wants to be famous at all cost.

This new drift should make for an interesting new season of The Real Housewives of New York.

Meet The New Cast Of Survivor Samoa!

CBS has unveiled it’s latest cast of Survior:Samoa. This will be the 19th season of the series, which premieres Thursday, Sept. 17 (8 p.m. EST).

There is however a twist this season, as competing tribes will be asked to immediately pick a chief, someone to make all the decisions for the group, according to a press release from CBS.

“Surrounded by coconut palms in a land steeped in tradition, the Samoans who inhabit this island have a proud history and strong sense of community that has enabled their own survival,” the release says. “From the start of the game, Survivor embraces this Samoan culture by incorporating an ancient tradition of electing an individual leader of the village.”

Jon Gosselin Says Media Is Exploiting His Kids, Makes Splash In Vegas

The latest in Jon Gosselin‘s diarrhea of the mouth comes his claim that the media is exploiting his children.

Jon tells E! News, “I do believe the media and tabloids covering my family and the show for their own financial gain are the ones exploiting them.”

The Jon & Kate Plus 8 dad however makes certain to exclude his show’s network, TLC, out of the equation, “I’m not saying TLC is exploiting my children…I have said on numerous occasions TLC has afforded my kids a better life and has helped provide a better roof on their heads.”

So according to Jon The Genius, the media and tabloids are exploiting his kids, but the network which makes millions off putting his kids on national television is the only one not exploiting them. Perhaps Jon needs to realize majority of the “media and tabloid” stories have little to do with his kids, and more to do with his recent very public and somewhat shameful behavior, which includes sleeping with his kids’ babysitter, as well as numerous other women.

In other news, Jon was paid an undisclosed amount of money to host a pool party Saturday night at Wet Republic at the MGM Grand Hotel & Casino. The above photo is from the party. About 2,000 people were said to have been in attendance.

Audrina Patridge: I’m Leaving The Hills

Audrina Patridge has decided to follow in the footsteps of former castmate, Lauren Conrad, as she has also decided to leave her hit show, The Hills.

“I’m almost done with The Hills. We’re in the middle of finishing these episodes, and I’ll be leaving then,” Audrina revealed at a junket for her new thriller Sorority Row Sunday in LA.

“It feels like I’m graduating,” she added. “I’m taking the next step and growing up and maturing and moving on in my life.”

This might also have to do with the fact that Audrina,24, is currently developing her own reality show with Survivor producer Mark Burnett.

Audrina also plans to continue pursuing her acting career, and credits The Hills for helping her, “I feel like it’s helped me a lot going to auditions and sitting in front of the camera… blocking the camera out and just getting into character.”

The new season of The Hills is set to premiere Sept. 29 on MTV.

Megan Wants A Millionaire Contestant Possible Murder Suspect

VH1 is known for bringing us strippers, “models,” and sometimes pornstars when it comes to their dating shows, but could murderer now be included in that category?

TMZ is reporting Ryan Alexander Jenkins, one of the contestants of Megan Wants A Millionaire, is wanted as a person of interest in the murder of playboy representative, Jasmine Fiore. Jasmine was found dead in a trash bin in Buena Park last Saturday morning. She was first reported missing by Ryan on Saturday night.

The story takes an interesting twist as Ryan and Jasmine were actually married. According to TMZ, Ryan married Jasmine just 2 days after meeting her at a Las Vegas strip club earlier this year. It is reported that Ryan married Jasmine shortly after being eliminated from Megan Wants A Millionaire — he was one of the finalists.

In an interview with TMZ, Megan Hauserman said Jenkins was smart, nice and she is shocked by the turn of events.

As of now, Ryan remains at large. His lawyer contacted TMZ, saying Ryan plans on meeting with authorities in the near future.

Real Housewives of Atlanta Nene Leakes: “Yes I Was A Stripper”

New Jersey Housewife Danielle Staub seems to be in good company, as Nene Leakes of The Real Housewives of Atlanta is now admitting to her past as a stripper.

“Yes, I was a stripper – let the judgments ensue…I am not ashamed” Nene announces the bombshell in her new autobiography – Never Make The Same Mistake Twice.

Nene seems to believe her stripper past has no reflection on her presence as an “Atlanta socialite,” saying, “What difference does it make if I danced or not?” she asks. “Is the sun going to stop shining? Is my past taking food out of your mouth?”

Nene proceeds to explain her reasons for stripping, “[I stripped] for the sake of my son, and to restore my confidence in myself,” she explains. “My son was in private school, his father wasn’t chipping in for ­pull-ups or food, I had no job and no money coming in, the rent was past due, and the super told me and my roommate that our condo owner was about to put us out. It was about survival.”

The ex-stripper, who referred to herself as Silk during her dancing days as a twentysomething year old – admits that she liked the power that came with being a stripper. “I could make $500 off one guy just by turning him on.” These men “were obviously there to see what I had, and I quickly realized that those men weren’t there to make me feel bad about myself.”

Interestingly, it has always been said that Nene’s husband, Gregg Leakes, met her at a strip club while she was working. Fellow castmate, Kim Zolciak was also outed has being a past stripper by her former publicist. My favorite part of this story is that she stripped to restore confidence in herself – brings out the lols.

Hailey Glassman: Jon Gosselin Is My ‘First Love’

Jon Gosselin’s 22 year old girlfriend, Hailey Glassman, is speaking out on their relationship. Hailey is defending her relationship with the Jon & Kate Plus 8 dad and calling him her “first love.”

“I’m not some fame whore,” Hailey tells E! Online about her relationship with Jon. “I want people to know the truth. Right now I’m speaking from my heart, myself. I’m not some celebrity, I’m not some famous person – I’m just a 22-year-old girl who got caught in the middle of all this.”

Hailey goes on to dismiss the speculation that she played a part in Jon & Kate’s divorce. She says the couple were separated for “months” before she became an item with Jon, proclaiming that her relationship with Jon began while he was staying at her parents’ home.

“He was living in my house, the person I joked around with. He was sad and bored, I was home and bored,” Hailey says.

Hailey also happens to be the daughter of Kate’s tummy-tuck surgeon. “Jon and Kate have moved on with their lives,” she says. “It’s only the viewers who haven’t moved on.”

In not so shocking news, another Bravo housewife is now facing an eviction. TMZ reports Lynne Curtin of The Real Housewives of Orange County, along with her husband Frank Curtin, received a 3-day eviction notice from the owner of the Laguna Beach house where they live. And yes, their home is rented.

According to TMZ, Lynne could be evicted from her home if she doesn’t come up with more than $12,000 in the next three days.

The notice says the couple owes the home owner a $10,000 security deposit, $600 late fee and $1,763 in other expenses. The homeowner also claims the Curtins have been delinquent on their utilities, which have now been shut off.

It gets even better worse, as Bravo cameras were said to be rolling when the eviction notice was served. No word on whether or not this will be shown when the show returns this fall. Knowing Bravo, something tells me it will.
