    Thanks to her incredible talent for agreeing to show up at charity events then not showing up once the check clears, Lindsay Lohan now has the perfect combination of time and money to have every single freckle on her body removed because who needs a natural camouflage for herpes? Am I right? I’m right. Radar reports:

    “Lindsay is known for trying new things, but she’s shocked friends and family members by suddenly getting irate over her freckles,” a source said.
    “She’s always loved her freckles – well, pretended to, anyway – but now she’s decided it’s time to get rid of them and she’s looking into having them either bleached or lasered away,” the source added.

    Kris Jenner may claim that Jay Z and Beyonce’s shocking no-show at daughter Kim Kardashian and Kanye West’s Italian wedding “was the last thing on anyone’s mind”— but it seems the groom is actually fuming.

    During his June 7 performance at the X Games in Austin, Texas, West, 37, suspiciously changed his lyrics to exclude his onetime best friend and music collaborator’s name.

    In his song “Cold,” the star usually raps “Lucky I ain’t had Jay drop him from the team.” But in his latest concert, West simply left “Jay” out of the line.

    And in West’s tune “Blood on the Leaves,” he typically spews “I don’t give a damn if you used to talk to Jay-Z.” In the first performance since his opulent wedding weekend, he said “I don’t give a damn if you used to talk to (silence).”

    Looks like West can’t take his mind off Jay Z and Beyonce’s snub.

    As Radar exclusively reported, insiders say Beyonce actually refers to Kardashian as a “scandalous social climbing wh*re” behind her back, and Jay Z brushed off the extravagant Kimye wedding, calling it a “circus.”

    Have you ever heard of a "booty room"? Neither had we until we stumbled upon a rumor today that actually seems kind of believable given the recent Kimye happenings. Nevermind walls of roses or wedding celebrations at Versailles, outlets are reporting a rumor that Kim Kardashian has dedicated an entire room in her new Bel-Air mansion to beautifying, toning, and pampering her butt, and they're calling it a "booty room."

    So what does that involve exactly? Butt-toning gym equipment, including the ProForm Booty Firm, the Yukon Fitness Butt, and Thigh Shaper, the Suzanne Somers Buttmaster, and a range of butt-toning belts and resistance bands, the reports are saying. It doesn't stop there. There's also talk of a cellulite-busting "area" (whatever that means) and a bum-spa (whatever that means).

    While it's very unclear about whether or not the rumor is actually true, we just had to laugh. Meanwhile, Kim, you just keep doing you, and we'll wait to see if this "booty room" is built.

  • 06/14/14--18:11: Ryan Atwood Talks 'Gotham'


  • During his first day on the set of Fox’s Batman prequel series Gotham, star Ben McKenzie sat in a 1970s-era Chrysler and had a moment of doubt.

    This was his first scene for the production playing Det. Jim Gordon, and it was a very simple one – McKenzie merely had to drive the car up to Wayne Manor. But suddenly, the former Southland star felt overwhelmed. “I’m sitting behind the wheel, and I’m thinking, ‘This is crazy, this is crazy. What am I doing? This is nuts. I’m never going to be able to pull this off,’” he recalled. Thankfully, the moment passed, “and it all went great.”

    Below McKenzie talks about diving into the Batman universe and shooting the fall’s most highly anticipated new series, which follows a superpower and gadget-free cop responsible for stopping Gotham’s increasingly theatrical array of villains. In this prequel world, Bruce Wayne is still just a kid, and Gordon’s first assignment is investigating the mysterious murder of his parents.


    ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: So how did you get involved with this show?
    Ben McKenzie: I did a pilot with [Gotham creator Bruno Heller] last year…

    The legal one ?
    Yeah — well, it was about victims’ advocates. We had a really good time, and obviously the show didn’t get picked up, but we were really proud of it. It was for CBS and they picked up like maybe two dramas.

    CBS has so few slots in their schedule.

    It was one of those things. And I had heard this was coming down the pipe, and Bruno sent me the script early and said he wrote this part with me in mind — which is incredibly flattering. We just started the discussions from there, and it has all come together in an amazing way. To be written for by a fantastic writer and to start from a place of knowing and liking each other — it’s a beautiful way of jumping off.

    What excites you about the character?
    He’s a truly honest man. The last honest man in a city full of crooked people. It’s very tricky nowadays to play a true, honest-to-goodness hero. Everybody is so cynical of people’s intentions. What’s interesting about him is he comes into this city that he hasn’t lived in for two decades, since he was a kid, and has fresh eyes to a world he doesn’t actually know. He thinks he knows it, and his journey will be to figure out how to make it better both for Gotham and himself without completely [losing] the moral standing that he has. He’s not an anti-hero, he’s a true hero— but he will have to compromise.

    From reading the pilot script, it seems like, given the tightrope he has to walk in just the first episode of the show, it’s hard to see how Gordon could maintain his ideals throughout the series.
    He won’t. And that’s one of the things we talked about very early on. This is not a Batman-from-the-’50s kind of show, with moral duality in black and white. In this world, everybody lives in the grey. Everybody is on the take. Everybody is compromised. There is no way he’ll emerge unscathed from that. How does he hold onto the thread of his mortality while getting things done?

    How are you making this character unique from your last law enforcement character, on Southland?
    I’m trying to bring whatever I picked up on Southland:some semblance of tactical reality of whatever he’s doing.

    That training must be helpful.
    To some degree I’m trying to bring that. It’s clearly a different show, it’s clearly not reality. But I learned so much on that job over the years. The thing I run into here is that — there’s nothing wrong with having a moral center, and it sets [Gordon] apart for the rest of the people in this world. And that’s an incredibly compelling concept. At the same time, for audiences, that moral centeredness can come across as naivete unless the character is written to be as smart as everybody else in the room, if not smarter. It’s sort of that noir-ish thing — Phillip Marlow is going to stumble, and he’s not going to know what the criminals know. But he’s as smart as they are, if not smarter, and so he’s going to figure it out as he goes along. So you have to juggle those balls without having the character go, “I can’t believe everybody is corrupt! What are the odds?” So that’s been an ongoing conversation. The good news is Bruno and [director Danny Cannon] are fully on board with that take on the character.

    How familiar were you with the Batman universe before this?
    I’m a big fan of Batman. I can’t claim I grew up reading a lot of comics — weirdly the one I remember is Iron Man. I would watch repeats of the cheesy biff-pow-bang show, the Adam West version, in the afternoons in Texas. As I grew older, [the depictions of Batman] grew more sophisticated, and I loved the [Christopher] Nolan films. The thing that I think is universally relateable about Batman is he’s not a superhero. He has no special powers. He’s simply a man who’s experienced this extreme trauma, and has access to all sort of gadgets and weaponry that a wealthy person could have, and has an emotional need for justice. As an actor, I’m much more interested in people. When they have superpowers, it’s not that I don’t find them enjoyable, it’s just that….

    You feel detached.
    I feel a little detached. Not to rag on a completely unrelated topic, but to me it’s like musicals. I’m like, “Oh, I’m with this story,” and then they start singing and that seems strange. I probably shouldn’t say that in New York City! Long story short: Gordon couldn’t be more human. In a DC universe where all of these characters are human, he is Exhibit A in being a simple, flawed human being. He’s strong and smart and tough, but he’s going to make wrong decisions and trust the wrong people. And he has no out — he can’t put on a cape and fly off.

    How have you prepared for the role? 
    I went to lunch with [DC Comics chief creative officer] Geoff Johns and asked, “What do I need to know? I’m familiar with Batman and Gordon, but what’s my responsibility here?” He gave me Gotham Central… and said two things: The origin story of Gordon hasn’t been fully explored before. As central as he is, Gordon has never been the focus. And second, you can’t worry about that. “We hired you to play you and to make this character fresh.” And he said it without provocation. That coming from the guy who’s so well versed in this, saying to make it your own, it was a real pat on the shoulder. There’s a tendency with such a familiar world that it can be intimidating. But you got to relax and do it. It ought to be bigger and grander and — frankly — cooler than most, but you have to treat it like a job.

    What’s been uniquely challenging in terms of shooting the pilot?
    To me, this show has to be shot in New York. New York is Gotham and Gotham is New York. It’s been incredible to be here. This is my first time shooting here. It’s exactly the look and feel and energy that you just cannot fake in a backlot. But it’s been 20 degrees and windy. Plus, there’s the more practical challenge of creating a new world. If a Toyota Corolla drives by in the background, it doesn’t make any difference what you’re doing performance-wise — it’s not usable.

    You have to be envious sometimes when the other actors have cool nicknames and outfits and wicked traits, and you have to put on your tie.
    Yes! You don’t want him to be the straight man to everybody else, the rube who’s kind of boring. You have to trust the fact that we’re telling Jim’s story. Why are we telling his story? We’re telling it because in a world that’s about to fall apart due to all of these people, when there is no reason to be good, he’s the one man standing up and saying, “No, that’s not right.” And there’s inherent power to that. Besides, I don’t want to be hippest guy. I don’t want to sit around in a fedora and skinny jeans.

    Kate Upton’s modeling portfolio continues to expand — she’s been everywhere from Sports Illustrated to Vogue and landed gigs as the face of Bobbi Brown and Express. And now we’ve got the first look at Upton’s Express denim and fall campaigns.

    “It’s really exciting for me to be the brand ambassador for Express this year because it is a brand that I have grown up with and always wear,” Upton, 22, tells PEOPLE, adding that her first Express purchase was “definitely a tank top — I grew up in Florida!” and that her most recent bargain buy was also from the line: a pair of lace shorts for 40% off. (Her most recent splurge? “A brand new saddle for my horse!”)

    And despite the fact that much of her modeling experience has been in swim, Upton said that posing in contemporary clothing was not more of a challenge than any other photoshoot she’s been on. “Every time I am on a fashion set I try to treat it completely differently from any shoot that I have been on, so it would be impossible to compare,” she says. “It helps to make the pictures way more fun for my fans to see — and for me!”



    kate-upton-1-600x450

    Upton walked off the set with “a ton of outfits,” including “the hot black dress and jumpsuit,” but she says that her day-to-day style is much more laid back than the “classic, sophisticated and sexy” vibe she aims for at red carpet events (see her favorite dress here!). “I love to get all dressed up, but it can be really exhausting to get done-up like that every day,” she shares. “When I’m on my own, it’s more realistic for me to be casual and comfortable because I love to be outside and I am always hanging out with friends and family.”

    kate-upton-2-600x450

    Much has been made of Upton’s famously curvy body, so we asked if she’s picked up any tips for dressing herself from stylists on her many photoshoots. But as it turns out, her best style advice came from a source a little closer to home. “My mom always told me not to buy anything that I don’t love, and I find that very helpful when shopping,” she says. “The hardest thing for me about finding clothes is you have to shop a season ahead of time, and I don’t like to plan that far in advance.”

    kate-upton-3-600x450

    Perhaps Upton’s favorite thing about the shoot (besides the early birthday cupcake she received — her 22nd was Tuesday!) was the killer soundtrack. “I love when other people pick the playlist for my shoots because I get to learn about new music! Right now my favorite pump-up song is ‘Fancy’ by Iggy Azalea.” Makes sense — Upton’s life just keeps getting fancier.


    Kate Upton and Justin Verlander Continue Model's Birthday Celebrations at Underground in Chicago—All the Details!

    rs_560x415-140611105135-1024.kate-upton-birthday.ls.61114_copy

    Kate Upton had quite a birthday!

    The blond bombshell was joined by Justin Verlander and pals for a dinner at Chicago Cut Steakhouse earlier this week to celebrate Upton's 22nd birthday, but the fun didn't stop there!

    Kate continued her birthday celebration at the Underground in Chicago, an eyewitness tells E! News. Upton arrived at the after-hour club at around 2 a.m. Thursday morning with her boyfriend and one of his Detroit Tigers teammates Phil Coke.

    According to the insider, Upton was looking very stylish wearing a red dress and was very friendly with staff and guests.

    "He was trying to be low-key, but she was up dancing with a fun group," says the eyewitness. "They were the most fun group in the club that night."

    Upton was also spotted being affectionate with her boyfriend. They were all drinking Grey Goose cocktails and enjoying the house music played by DJ Tony Arzadon. "It was a really fun night," says the eyewitness.

    Also at the Underground in Chicago that night was Backstreet Boys members Nick Carter and Howie Dorough, who came in with Nickelback lead singer Chad Kroeger and a group of friends at around 1:40 a.m. Howie left early in the night, while Nick left at 3 a.m. and Chad stayed until closing. Nick and Chad seemed to be having a great time, dancing on top of podiums and were interactive with crowd, according to the eyewitness.

    I am one of only three people in the entire world who still hasn’t seen Frozen, Disney’s billion-dollar Mr. Freeze prequel, but even I’ve watched “Let It Go” on YouTube multiple times and aware of who Elsa is. She’s a Snow Queen, and can manipulate the winter elements, like a really, really, really white Bender from Avatar: The Last Airbender. She is also really gorgeous, which isn’t a weird thing to say about a cartoon character, because her real-life doppelgänger has been found. Meet Anna Faith Carlson.

    A few weeks ago, while visiting the Altamonte Mall in Altamonte Springs, Anna Faith Carlson, 18, who goes by Anna Faith, posed for a picture with a cardboard cutout of Queen Elsa from Disney’s hit animated musical.

    “We had just finished a modeling job in Orlando and my mom and best friend wanted me to take a picture with the cutout,” Faith explained. “My hair was up and I looked like a mess, so I didn’t want to at first.” Taking the photo turned out to be a great decision.

    It went viral, and now she’s started to make appearances as Elsa.

    Carlson is working with her daughter now to plan a trip to Moody Air Force Base in Valdosta, Ga., for a fundraising event for a 5-year-old autistic girl who has been diagnosed with cancer.

    Making up a fake number to give to an overly-aggressive guy at a bar is a tactic as old as phone operators. But why give the guy the number for your nearest Dominoes, when you could let him talk to feminist icon bell hooks?

    Instead of making up a fake number, women can now give out this one: (669) 221-6251. Unwanted admirers will receive a text in response quoting writings of bell hooks (lowercase intentional), a feminist activist and writer and the author of the book Feminism is for Everybody. Her writings have inspired hundreds of feminists, and now they can inspire some people to be a little less aggressive in their pick-up strategies.

    The creators of the site are still anonymous, but they did email The Hairpin to say that "the idea is to pass that off as one's own number if you're in a dicey situation, afraid to give out your personal cell phone number or outright reject someone."

    As far as television is concerned, there's something just irresistibly funny about dads who cook. Well, we beg to differ. Here are five TV dads who knew their way around the kitchen, to a greater or lesser extent.

    Walter White from "Breaking Bad"
    We all know Walter White was a good cook ... but we're not just talking about his one-of-a-kind recipe for meth. When White wanted to turn on the charm and compete with his brother-in-law Hank, he headed outside to the grill. And who could forget his adorable apron over a checkered shirt? It was dark green and read, "MMM something's cookin!" Yes, with White, something was always cooking.


    Coach Taylor from "Friday Night Lights"
    Coach Eric Taylor, played by Kyle Chandler, is one of the most beloved father characters on TV. Many memorable scenes from the show take place in the kitchen or at the dinner table. Coach Taylor cooked for team barbecues and he was also a fan of bacon. In an interview with The Times in 2011, Chandler said he and the crew would insert bacon into as many scenes as possible. "It wasn’t a set, it was a real house," Chandler said. "So every time we went there to shoot, I’d go in early and cook everyone bacon."


    Dr. Heathcliff Huxtable from "The Cosby Show"
    He may not have been the best cook in the world, but he was an expert at pretending to cook. In one scene, Huxtable is in the kitchen, explaining to Sondra's boyfriend Elvin how to cook his secret spaghetti sauce. He instructs him to just boil stuff in a pot, throw some random spices and twigs in and mix. Then when no one is looking, pour in some bottled spicy barbecue sauce and voila. And don't forget to wipe your brow a couple times. You know, to make it look like you're really cooking.

    "If I wasn't black, that wouldn't have happened to me; I've thought that so many times I've lost count," says Michael B Jordan, star of Fruitvale Station. "A woman holds on to her purse as she walks by, or people cross the street when they see me, to being pulled over by the cops for no reason. I've been illegally searched. I've been harassed. Have I been in situations where people who don't know me have treated me like less than a person? Yes I have."


    One of Hollywood's brightest new acting prospects, calling from the set of blockbuster The Fantastic Four, recounts such incidents of pernicious racism as if they're obvious, inevitable. But Jordan, resting in his trailer after a morning playing the Human Torch, talks matter-of-factly. "It's just what comes with being black," Jordan says, "and it happens most of the time."

    Michael Bakari Jordan (his middle name is Swahili for "noble promise"), 27, grew up in New Jersey, the son of a teacher and a caterer. He started acting and modelling early, as well as learning to tap-dance, and his first break was in a Toys R Us advert. Despite being an obsessive basketball player, he made his name with the NBC American football series Friday Night Lights. You'll probably know him from The Wire as Wallace, the project pawn in Avon Barksdale's drug cartel, the one with the wide cornrows, wider eyes and all-too-obvious conscience."I'm always hearing, 'Where's Wallace, String? Where's Wallace?'" he says, laughing. "That's usually the first thing people say to me."
    But being young, black and American can also cost you your life, as his new film shows with brutal precision. Fruitvale Station, Jordan's first lead role, is directed by Ryan Coogler, a 28-year-old debutante straight out of film school, and shot in a clean cinéma vérité style for less than $1m. It's based on a true story, retelling the final day of Oscar Grant, a 22-year-old black man from the San Francisco Bay area who, in the small hours of New Year's Day 2009, got caught up in a fight on a packed-out train, before being shot by a policeman in the chaotic aftermath. Footage taken by a fellow passenger went viral, sparking riots across the city. Coogler grew up in the same neighbourhood, is the son of a community organiser and probation officer, works as a counsellor in a juvenile prison, and has made his point in interviews time and again: "Homicide through gun violence is the leading cause of death among young African-American males in the United States."

    "I was living in LA, broke as hell and getting ready to go back home to New Jersey when I saw Oscar Grant's murder on Facebook," Jordan says. "I remember watching it again and again, feeling more and more angry. Oscar Grant is two weeks older than me. We both grew up in inner cities, in similar situations. Watching that footage, you think: 'That could have been me.'"
    The film opens with that same footage. It shows Grant trying to plead his innocence as he is cuffed and held face-down on the platform. Then, one of the officers unholsters his handgun and shoots Grant in the back. Grant died the next morning. The officer who fired the shot testified that in a panic he mistook the gun for his taser. He was found guilty of involuntary manslaughter and walked free after 11 months. "Do I feel any sympathy for the police that night, in that heightened situation on Fruitvale Station?" Jordan asks. "No, none. They can say what they want, but a handgun is very different to a taser."
    Fruitvale was released in America just as George Zimmerman, the neighbourhood watch volunteer who killed the unarmed Trayvon Martin, was cleared of murder."It seems to be happening again and again; young men from minorities slain by authorities that are supposed to serve and protect," Jordan says, his voice an even cool."That is a fact. You do the math. All I want to know is why."
    As the ensuing smear campaign made clear – and as the film is careful to recognise – Grant was an ex-con with a dangerous temper who sold drugs between jobs. What wasn't widely reported was the fact he died on his mother's birthday, and had spent the early evening with his infant daughter, girlfriend, mother, grandma and extended family, eating gumbo and birthday cake.
    Jordan's performance in Fruitvale Station has been likened to a young Denzel Washington. The mainstream has called with lighter roles – his turn as the Human Torch is buttressed by supporting roles in That Awkward Moment, a romcom with Zac Efron, and with Dane DeHaan in Chronicle, a film about teenagers with superpowers. Fruitvale, though, shows Jordan's ability to communicate the essence of a complex, uncertain young man through a mosaic of tiny details. He can hold a scene just by straining the cords on his neck, or shrugging someone off with a loose, evasive smile.

    Jordan is keen to talk up the film's documentary basis. Coogler reconstructed Oscar's last day from trial records and court transcripts, while an attorney representing Grant's family provided access to witnesses on the train and passers-by who shared time with Oscar on his last day. The interactions we see, Jordan says, verifiably happened. Yet the film has had to weather claims it omits and distorts the facts of the case to create a martyr of Grant. A review in the New York Post read: "Given the vanishingly small likelihood that an established criminal's promise to go straight at any given moment should be taken seriously, the film doesn't push the idea of incipient redemption too much. It does, however, nudge us into making Grant more lovable with completely made-up scenes, such as one in which he cares for a dog hit by a car."
    Variety, meanwhile, said: "Even if every word of Coogler's account of the last day in Grant's life held up under close scrutiny, the film would still ring false in its relentlessly positive portrayal of its subject."
    Jordan admits the pitbull scene was invented. "But art is there for interpretation," he says. "African-Americans are considered in the United States as like pitbulls. We are looked at as vicious and intimidating human beings. So when that pitbull gets left for dead in the street, it foreshadows what's going to happen to Oscar. If people want to misconstrue that as being manipulative, then they might be in the wrong industry. But you got to ask whether they know what the fuck they are talking about."
    If the audience are being worked on here, then it's more subtle than the press might care to admit. The first time we meet Jordan's Grant, he's lighting up a joint and hiding his stash as his girlfriend harangues him for cheating on her; hardly a corrective for the stereotype of black youth. But then, in almost the same moment, Grant is scooping up his infant daughter and holding his family close, before texting his mum happy birthday. In that one scene, Coogler and Jordan show us what we expect to see, then flip the image to subvert that expectation.
    What, I ask, is Jordan's message to the film's critics? For the first time, his voice rises a little. "What's so unrealistic and manipulative about a black man loving his daughter, and having real, emotional moments with his family?" he says, the words firing out. "Why do people make these accusations? Is it because African-Americans aren't allowed to be real people? Is it because we're not allowed to be human and have human interactions with our family? Is that not allowed? Is it being manipulative to show those moments on screen?
    "Would you rather see us with a gun in our hand and a bandana on our face, acting like thugs? Because here, you ain't going to get that get. You're going to get questions instead."

    Back in 2006, a picture of Lil Wayne kissing his “father” Bryan “Baby” Williams on the lips surfaced online and many thought the photo would end the career of the Cash Money rapper. In truth, the reverse happened; Wayne went on to become a superstar.

    That infamous kiss is still a topic of discussion today. The latest person to weigh in on that display of physical affection between Weezy and Baby is former Hot Boys member Turk.

    During an interview with VladTV, the Louisiana rapper shared some of his experiences during his days at Cash Money and spoke about his own relationship with the company’s CEO.

    “We was all like Baby’s kids at one time. He took us from our momma when we were young, so he was like a big brother/daddy for the ones who ain’t have it,” said Turk. “Only one that [Baby didn't play the role for] was Juvenile, because even though his name was Juvenile, he was old. So he didn’t look at Baby the way we did.”

    The conversation then turned to Wayne and Baby kissing. Turk expressed the media and fans blew the situation out of proportion.

    “That’s just something n***as did in-house. Just like when n***a’s play basketball, n***a might make a shot, n***a hit him on his ass. That don’t mean he a fag, that means ‘good job’,” explained Turk.“We all used do that s**t. That was an in-house thing. N***as used to be like, ‘You got love for a nigga? How much you love me?’ It just was a homeboy thing.”

    Again, Turk revealed that Juvenile, being older, was the only one that did not participate in those actions. He also added he would not join in kissing other men now and that doing so at that time did not make him or anyone else at Cash Money gay.

    Individuals with knowledge of the situation told TheWrap that Cynthia Bailey, Kandi Burruss, NeNe Leakes, Phaedra Parks, Porsha Stewart and Kenya Moore are all in the final stages of contract negotiations.

    Bravo didn't immediately respond to our request for comment. The network is expected to make the official cast announcement after the cast's contracts are closed.

    This would be considered a good thing for Bravo, since Season 6 of “RHOA” was the highest rated season across all Bravo's key demos, including an average 2 million viewers in the advertiser-coveted Adults 18-49 demo. It averaged 3.5 million viewers per episode.

    There was some speculation that a cast shakeup was inevitable following a rambunctious reunion taping in which Stewart attacked Moore.

    There was the twist of Leakes and Bailey ending their longtime friendship. Leakes, the longest-standing castmember of RHOA, went so far as to suggest that Bailey added nothing to the show and should be fired.

    RHOA is the most-watched series of the Real Housewives franchise and has spawned four spinoff series.





    Teresa & Joe Giudice Are Spending Their Final Moments Together Fighting!


    Despite the fact that his time as a free man is slipping away like sands in an hourglass, Joe Giudice still doesn't appear to be changing his ways. We first heard that The Real Housewives of New Jersey star, who's set to go back to court on July 8 to learn his fate, has been spending a significant amount of time drinking and generally being a hot mess, and now new reports have come in, claiming that Joe is barely spending any time with Teresa Giudice and his girls. Apparently, Juicy Joe's priorities right now are "doing his own thing, and doing stuff with the guys." And understandably, Teresa is furious.

    According to a source, "Teresa feels like Joe should be spending every minute that he can with her and their four girls, and wants to know why he’s ignoring them." Joe may only have a matter of a few weeks left to spend with his family, and from the sounds of things, he's been MIA. Although she's certainly in the wrong for their money troubles, as well, it's hard not to feel bad for Teresa for having to deal with this on top of the couple's legal woes.

    Shouldn't both of them want to spend as much time as possible with each other, and with their kids, right now? What an awful way for Teresa to spend the potential last moments with her husband: Pissed, annoyed, and confused.

    This, of course, doesn't come as a complete shock, being that Joe is, well, Joe.









    Did Heather Dubrow Fake That Phone Call?


    In Monday night’s all-new episode of The Real Housewives of Orange County, Heather Dubrow may have pulled the oldest trick in the book and allegedly answered a fake phone call to get out of a tough conversation. Fellow co-star Vicki Gunvalson was confident she knew what Heather was up to. “Heather, next time you answer a fake phone call, you’d better make sure that the screen lights up, because nobody was on the other line,” Vicki said, rolling her eyes.

    The call was supposedly from Heather’s son, Nicky. Immediately upon answering the phone, Heather asked, “Are you okay? How’s your stomach? What are you feeling?” Heather then passed the phone to her husband, Terry, who began to ask Nicky about his symptoms. The pair began to ask the other Housewives for the time, and made a hasty exit.

    Despite Vicki’s accusations, Terry has sworn the call was legit. “Really,” Terry told RumorFix. “If you rewind the tape, you see the phone lights up — look at it.” That’s true, but it could just be Heather turning the phone on! “If we were going to tell a white lie — it would not be about our kid being ill. It’s bad karma,” Terry added. “And if you know us — you know that if we wanted to go, we would go!”












    RHONY Stars React To Reunion Filming!


    On Friday, June 13, the day they filmed the reunion show, several of the housewives posted photos of them getting ready for the big event, before the makeup and hair stylists did their work.

    New housewife Kristen Taekman posted a photo of herself sitting in her hotel room's chair while still in her bathrobe, pajamas and slippers early on in the morning.



    Instead of dreading reunion day, especially since it fell on Friday the 13th, Kristen seemed to hope for the best, wishing her fans a happy day and declaring it "the lucky13th."

    Her enemy, Ramona, also posted a makeup-free pic. Her photo shows her with co-stars Heather Thomson and Carole Radziwill in a hotel room.



    Like Kristen, they're still in their pajamas and bathrobes. Both Heather and Carole have their hair clipped back, ready for their glam squads to work their magic.

    Ramona also posted a photo of herself with Sonja Morgan, the women she's closet to on the show.



    The close-up photo shows what the women really look like naturally, although it seems that Sonja already has a bit of mascara and lip gloss on.

    Some of the housewives also gave their reactions to filming the reunion via their social media accounts. Sonja said that it was "exhausting," Kristen said that it was the "longest day ever" and that she's "so happy it's over," and Aviva Drescher joked during the lunch break that Carole is to blame if she doesn't come out alive.

    Even reunion host Andy Cohen gave his thoughts on the reunion via his Twitter account. He tweeted that he loved the reunion, which was full of "drama, tears and absurd conversations." While Andy loved the reunion, it's not likely that the women of The Real Housewives of New York City loved it as much!

    Kardashian's little sisters look pretty grown up while walking the red carpet. Kendall wears a long-sleeved, cream-coloured gown adorned with jewels -- and a very risque thigh slit! Kylie is slightly more conservative in a sparkly minidress.
