Star: Brandi Glanville’s latest Botox session ‘went too far’, she’s ‘embarrassed’

wenn21940731

Here are some photos of Brandi Glanville a few nights ago, at the premiere of Girlfriends’ Guide to Divorce. I’ve noticed in recent photos – like, the past two months or so – that Brandi has been looking a little extra Botoxy. It kind of comes and goes with her, depending on whether you’re looking at still photos or whether you’re watching her in motion, trying to move her face. But Star Magazine says Brandi’s most recent procedure went too far and now she’s trying to wait until her face regains some sense of mobility back:

Leave it to potty-mouthed party girl Brandi Glanville to take things too far. The RHOBH star has made no secret of her use of Botox and fillers to stave off Father Time, but in the wake of her most recent treatment, she’s not realizing you can have too much of a good thing.

“Brandi is embarrassed about how it turned out,” says an insider, revealing that Brandi nearly burst into tears when she saw a preview of her appearance on The Steve Harvey Show.

“She’s trying to find a boyfriend and wants to look young, but she knows she went too far.”

While she lets the treatments wear off, she’s using some liquid courage to face the haters. “Brandi’s girlfriends took her out to cheer her up… nothing like a drunken night out for Brandi to shake it off!”

[From Star Magazine, print edition]

This may sound asinine, but I think this really happens to a lot of women in Hollywood and New York. I mean, I’m sure women are Botoxing all around this great land of ours, but I do think that in NYC and LA especially, there’s a tendency to “go big or go home” when it comes to cosmetic work. Think… Nicole Kidman. Think Renee Zellweger. It’s not that women simply want to stop aging – at this point, they have no problems doing major overhauls and getting completely new faces.

…Or, you know, this whole story could be from a torn page out of LeAnn Rimes’ Burn Book. “OMG, Brandi’s face looks so frozen!! Reminder: find out which doctor did the Botox so I can copy her exact look! Single White Female 4 EVA!!!”

Also: I’m not watching RHOBH because I’ve never watched an entire RHOBH episode in my life. But if you’d like to read a funny recap of the premiere episode, go here.

Sara Sampaio, Victoria’s Secret Model, Slams Skinny-Shaming Haters

A few weeks after Victoria’s Secret got into hot water for its Perfect Body campaign, one of that brand’s models have fired back at critics who argue she has anything but the perfect body.

Sara Sampaio – who is expected to walk the catwalk at the upcoming Victoria’s Secret Fashion show – recently posted a picture of herself in a bikini to Instagram.

And it was met with excessive insults from social media users who harassed Sampaio for being all skin and bones.

Sara Sampaio Picture

In response, Sampaio posted a defense of her figure, coming down hard on folks for trying to make a woman feel badly about her body.

“I’m proud of my body and I’m not gonna let any of you bully me just because I’m skinny!” the brunette wrote. “Every body is different, and every metabolism is different!

“I eat a lot, so next time u decide to tell me to eat a burger remember I probably eat more burgers than you, I’ve always been skinnier, and probably will always be, I workout, I’m healthy and I’m happy!”

Sampaio noted that she never criticizes anyone who is overweight and said there’s a double standard at work here:

It’s not okay to diss a fat woman, but it’s apparently acceptable to critique a skinny woman.

“The amount of hate I see thrown at me and to other model friends that I know are naturally skinny it’s ridiculous!” she wrote. “U don’t see us shaming other types of bodies so please don’t come and shame ours!

“Be happy with ur body and stop shaming others! Whether they are skinny, fat, fit, with big boobs, small boobs etc! Don’t share hate! Be happy.”

Lindsay Lohan


Lindsay Lohan looks healthier these days than she used to at the height of her … whatever that phase was.

Some followers have taken Sampaio to task for being a hypocrite because she said in a recent online video that she envies the body of model Candice Swanepoel.

But Sampaio writes that she loves herself just as she is. However…

“I can also look at another woman and admire her beauty. In fact, I admire the beauty of many women from all areas of life, not only Candice’s…As women we need to stand together. We are [judged] and objectified often enough by men. Here is to your feminism.”

Kim Richards sent her pitt bull to live with a trainer after his 5th violent attack

Screen Shot 2014-11-18 at 8.49.18 AM
This story has been out for a short while, so please bear with me if you’ve heard about it. There are some new-ish developments for Kim Richards, the former child star and Real Housewives of Beverly Hills cast member who allegedly got sober a couple of years ago after her third stint in rehab. Kim has a pitt bull, Kingsley, who has attacked humans in at least five separate incidents. (Only three incidents are detailed here, but reports claim there are five.)

In Kingsley’s latest attack, he injured Kim’s niece so badly that she needed two surgeries on her hand. Kim has half-blamed her niece, Kyle Richards’ daughter Alexia, for the attack, saying that “I already told [my nieces] my room was off limits.” Kim also downplayed the extent of Alexia’s injuries, stating that the first hospital visit was merely to clean the puncture wound on Alexia’s finger.

Back in March, the dog viciously bit one of Kim’s overnight guests, an 80 year-old friend named Kay Rozario. Rozario told Radar online that the attack was unprovoked, that Kim didn’t even tell her she had a dog, and that Kingsley “ripped my hand open down to the tendon..” Disturbingly, Rozario claims that Kim begged her not to report the attack, and quotes Kim as saying “Please don’t say anything. I might lose my show.TMZ details yet another attack by Kingsley over the summer, but states that animal control cannot get involved until a family member or victim contacts them. As of yet, none of the dog’s victims has called animal control.

After a lot of public and family pressure, Kim is finally doing something about the dog. She’s sent Kingsley to live with a trainer.

“He’s in a good place,” Richards told TMZ on Saturday. “He’s safe and with a trainer.”

But the decision to send her dog away didn’t come easy, despite a total of five reported incidents where Kingsley attacked humans.

“At this point I am looking into options to what the next step is for Kingsley,” Richards, 50, said in a statement received by the New York Post after Kim’s sister, Kyle (who also appears on the show), confirmed that her daughter had been bitten.

“Regarding Alexia: She was attacked by a dog and has to have surgery. As always, she is trying to make the best out of a bad situation. Thank you for your thoughts & well wishes,” Richards posted on Facebook Nov. 4.

Despite the animal’s aggressive behavior, it doesn’t appear that the mom of four – who got the dog to be her companion once her children moved out of the house – has any plans to put him down.

“As many of you can relate, he is my best friend,” says Richards. “This is a very difficult decision and time for all of us, but the safety of my family always comes first.”

[From People]

I disagree that Kim considers the safety of her family first. If this was the case, she would have sent Kingsley away the first time he bit anyone, not just after the first time he bit a family member. If this was the case she would crate the dog whenever she has guests, or at the least put him on a leash. She has continually coddled and protected that dog without standing up to him, which is how he ended up this way in the first place. I’m not saying it’s all Kim’s fault, I understand that some dogs have that kind of temperament, but she should have addressed it immediately instead of letting it get to this point. I have watched a few episodes of Dog Whisperer (which doesn’t make me an expert, and I understand that Cesar Millan’s methods are controversial) and if you watch the video below, you can see how Kim doesn’t lead that dog or take control of the situation. I get why she doesn’t want to put him down, she loves that dog and he’s protecting her, but Kingsley is her responsibility and he’s gravely injuring people.

Here’s the video from RHOBH in which a trainer visits Kim’s dog. Kim claims the dog has destroyed thousands of dollars of shoes and personal items, but he’s likely attacked people by that pointand she’s not admitting it. Kingsley tries to attack the trainer, who challenges him, leading Kingsley to back down. It’s unclear if this is the same trainer who is housing Kingsley now.

Kim’s Instagram is FULL of photos of Kingsley on her bed, sitting on top of her, getting into her purse, and laying on the furniture. In one video, Kingsley refuses to let her make the bed. She needs to show that dog who is boss.

Kate Gosselin and Steve Neild: Shacking Up During Celebrity Apprentice, Kenya Moore Claims!

Kate Gosselin and Steve Neild are totally getting it on, according to her Celebrity Apprentice co-star Kenya Moore, who says she saw the two shack up together!

Steve Neild, Kate Gosselin Photo

Moore tells Us Weekly that Kate Gosselin and Steve Neild, who have been long-rumored as a secret couple, were sharing a room during this spring’s filming.

“That bodyguard was very interesting because they actually shared a room – I don’t know if I’m supposed to say that – so he was around a lot,” Moore reveals.

Pretty scandalous reveal right there, whether she meant it that way or not!

Gosselin, 39, divorced her husband of 10 years, Jon Gosselin, in 2009.

Not long after that, rumors of Kate Gosselin and Steve Neild dating surfaced, although neither has publicly commented on the gossip one way or the next.

This year, the speculation resurfaced after Steve quit working for her, reportedly due to an ultimatum given to him by his wife of several decades that he do so.

Neild’s wife Gina Downie posted a family photo with her husband and two sons to Facebook after new rumors of Neild’s romance with Gosselin blossomed.

He has since resumed working for Kate and her family. Obviously.

Kate Gosselin and Steve Neild Photo


Are Kate Gosselin and Steve Neild dating? We wouldn’t necessarily assume so … but we wouldn’t write off the possibility either.

What is the status of their relationship now? It’s very far from clear.

While the Celebrity Apprentice cast was only recently announced, the filming took place early this year, before Neild briefly bailed on working for Kate.

It makes you wonder, although there is still no proof of anything.

As for Jon Gosselin, he is currently broke and homeless, or darn close to it, after going through as many jobs as Ed Hardy t-shirts over the past few years.

As for Kenya Moore, you can catch her battle with Kate, Brandi Glanville and other C-to-D-listers on Celebrity Apprentice starting in January on NBC.

Or watch The Real Housewives of Atlanta online right now!

Teresa Giudice Saying Good-Bye To ‘RHONJ’ (Video)

'Fabulicious! On The Grill' Book Signing WIth Teresa GiudiceThis is it for Teresa Giudice. She said good-bye to ‘Real Housewives of New Jersey‘ and the viewers on the reunion show last night. You can see a clip from the show after the break. RELATED: Where is Teresa Giudice going to serve time?

Host Andy Cohen asked Teresa if “this is it for you” in terms of the show. Teresa told him:

Yeah, I think so. You’re gonna make me cry, Andy. This is probably gonna be my last reunion.”

When Andy told her he was getting “emotional,” she replied:

You’re making me get emotional. Maybe you’ll see me on a cooking show. You never know.”

I think Teresa may be sharing what she hopes to be doing after she finishes her stint in prison. Personally, I’ll be SHOCKED if she doesn’t return to ‘Real Housewives of New Jersey’ after she’s released. What better way to get her back into reality TV after being gone for a year or so?

My understanding is that her cookbook sales weren’t all that impressive, so I don’t think she’ll be well-situated to target the “lifestyle” market. And the storyline of watching Teresa adjust to life after prison is far too juicy for ‘RHONJ’ to pass up, so I don’t think this is Teresa’s last reunion show. The only alternative I can think of is if Teresa does her own show, so we can see what life is like for her after prison and whether or not she really is a changed person. That I can see ;).

What do you think? Watch Teresa and Andy’s full exchange below.

Phaedra Parks ‘RHOA’ Star Defends Decision To Skip Apollo Nida’s Sentencing

Phaedra Parks Leaving An Office Building In New YorkWe already know ‘Real Housewives of Atlanta’ cast member Phaedra Parks skipped husband Apollo Nida’s sentencing hearing after he pled guilty to fraud. Apollo himself didn’t hide his bitterness about it, saying in interviews that the marriage was likely over because of it before he reported to prison. We all got to actually SEE Phaedra skip the sentencing, however, in the premiere of ‘Real Housewives of Atlanta’ last night, however. RELATED: Phaedra Parks talks about her decision to divorce Apollo Nida.

Although Phaedra said she skipped the sentencing, and took their two young sons to a hotel, to avoid the paparazzi and protect her sons, some of the ‘RHOA’ shots indicated paparazzi weren’t exactly swarming the house and, maybe, it wouldn’t have been so tough for her to attend the hearing. She explained her decision in her Bravo blog.

I’ve been criticized for not being at Apollo’s hearing, but the truth is I had been there for him in so many ways for such a long time. By the time all of this went down, it was apparent the marriage was over and my focus needed to be exclusively on the wellbeing of our children. I don’t think there’s a parent out there who wouldn’t agree.

Well,it’s not exactly surprising that Phaedra felt this way by the time the sentencing occurred. I think what’s shocking to, well, pretty much everyone is how she, an attorney, got involved with Apollo in the first place. He’d just been released from prison when they got together in 2009. She married him and starting having kids with him within a year or two of that? It just seems like a… surprising move. I’ve gotta ask…

The Real Housewives of Atlanta Season 7 Episode 1 Recap: Apollo Nida Loses It!

They’re back and crazier than ever! Bravo’s top-rated Real Housewives have returned, with reinforcements, for a seventh season of drama in the ATL.

If this premiere is any indication, it’s gonna get dirty in the south with all the mud slinging going on. Just ask Phaedra Parks, Apollo Nida or … any of them really.

On The Real Housewives of Atlanta Season 7 Episode 1, we got a behind the scenes look at the much talked about hours before Nida’s prison sentencing.

Spoiler alert: It was not pretty.

If you watch The Real Housewives of Atlanta online, or read any celebrity news lately, you know Nida is behind bars for fraud. What is it with these Bravo stars?

He and Teresa Giudice should just stick to flipping tables and stuff. That’s gotta pay the bills, right? What’s the deal with wannabe white collar criminals?

Anyway, “Life is extremely difficult right now” for his estranged with Parks, who took her two sons, Ayden and Dylan, to a hotel instead of the courtroom.

“Apollo’s actions are the ultimate betrayal,” she said of Nida, whose checkered past was a red flag long before this. “I thought he was a changed man.”

Nida sees it differently.

“The woman I thought was supposed to be there for me and cherished me was nowhere to be found,” Apollo said, feeling betrayed by her no-show.

“I’m not a murderer, I’m not a child molester … I understand what I’ve done is wrong, but it’s fixable. I’m here by myself on the biggest day of my life.”

Nida confessed to viewers that he “controlled shell corporations” and was given up by a co-conspirator, and is off to face the music for all that and more.

When Parks returned to their home following Nida’s day in court, he lashed out, and not just because he had just been handed an eight-year punishment.

Apollo Nida Gives Up


Apollo Nida is about to go asunder. As in to prison.

“You all decided to come back? You abandoned me,” Apollo raged at the mother of his two small children. “Family is supposed to stick by each other.”

Parks, an attorney, responded: “Were you thinking about your family? You couldn’t have been. It was selfish on your part … He is definitely out of his mind.”

The duo then fought over money before Nida snapped, “I don’t want to be in this relationship no more. I’m gonna talk to divorce counsel and go my own way.”

“If that is what he truly wants, bon voyage,” concluded the unmoved Parks, and sure enough, Phaedra filed for divorce from Apollo Nida earlier this fall.

What took her so long?

Meanwhile, as for the other elephant in the room, some cast members recalled how Porsha Williams beat down Kenya Moore at the reunion last season.

“Being physically attacked in front of the world has been difficult,” said Moore, while Williams claims she “doesn’t think about Kenya because she’s connected to such negativity.”

Oh, and Cynthia is still beefing with NeNe, and she says she’s over that too. We’re certain she’s not, but it made for one of the evening’s best lines.

“I was team Nene … the captain, the cheerleader,” Bailey told Moore of their feud. “What was I supposed to do? Crawl up in her butt? I’m happy to move on.”

NeNe: Who, Me?


We just can’t get enough of NeNe’s wonderful wacky faces.

Teresa Giudice BURNED By Lisa Kudrow on Watch What Happens Live: Don’t Commit Crimes, Felon!

Ever since Teresa Giudice was sentenced to 15 months in prison, the Bravo network has been the one place that she’s able to turn to for sympathy.

Andy Cohen interviewed Teresa in a compassionate, but no-nonsense fashion after her trial wrapped up.

Other Bravo stars have expressed their condolences, such as when Brandi Glanville called Teresa’s situation “sad” last week. 

But a celeb who sat down with Cohen on Watch What Happens Live last night was certainly not eager to join Teresa’s pity party:

When former Friends star and Real Housewives aficionado Lisa Kudrow was asked about the Teresa situation, she certainly didn’t mince words:

“I felt really bad for [Teresa’s daughters],” Lisa began. “Then I remembered that’s why we don’t commit crimes, because we think about our families and our children.”

Asked about the Giudices feud with castmate Jim Marchese, Kudrow responded:

“I’m on his side. I can’t spend time with these people, because I also like to avoid felons.”

Harsh. Guess Lisa’s put her flower child Phoebe Buffay days behind her.

But even if Cohen and company invite the occasional anti-Teresa guest, Bravo has still been very good to the Giudices.

The network offered Teresa the chance to film a new season of Jersey Housewives before she’s forced to report to prison, which resulted in a massive payday for her family.

As always, you can watch The Real Housewives of New Jersey online to see the Giudices in happier times.

Table Flipping Fiend


Teresa Giudice is not gonna take any crap. Her table-flipping reputation will precede her in prison, thanks to The Real Housewives of New Jersey Season 1.

The Real Housewives of New Jersey Season 6 Episode 17 Recap: This Show is So F–ked!

On The Real Housewives of New Jersey Season 6 Episode 17, the men of the Garden State joined in for the second part of an explosive reunion special.

Teresa Giudice still ended up receiving much of the attention, however, and how could she not, given the events of this fall and her looming prison term?

Solemn Teresa Giudice

In many ways, The Real Housewives of New Jersey Season 6 Episode 17 was more of the same, such as her “I didn’t understand my plea deal” defense.

An pre-recorded montage of Teresa Giudice rolling her eyes and repeating the same four or five sound bites could have passed for the real thing here.

Teresa’s brother, Joe Gorga, was then asked if he blames Teresa’s husband, Joe Giudice, for the fact that his sister is going to jail for the next 15 months.

“I don’t know. Do I blame him?” Joe mused.

“It happened. I’m not blaming anybody.”

Very committal and convincing there.

Then things got more interesting.

If you watch The Real Housewives of New Jersey online, you remember Jim Marchese’s comment that Rino Aprea was “banging” a Russian stripper.

Rino did indeed date a stripper, Teresa Aprea clarifies, after his divorce from Teresa and before they remarried. “Rino did not cheat,” Teresa insists.

Still no word on whether Rino banged her mom.

The Real Housewives of New Jersey New Season 6 Cast Photo


Say hello to The Real Housewives of New Jersey New for Season 6. They are: Dina Manzo, Teresa Giudice, Melissa Gorga, Amber Marchese, Nicole Mauriello and Teresa Aprea.

Teresa Aprea’s twin sister, Nicole Napolitano, confirmed she is still living with her parents and is still not engaged to her boyfriend of two years, Bobby Ciasulli.

This led to an unexpectedly long focus on Bobby.

Dina Manzo, who implied that he might have been using her, may have been on to something, according to Jim, who wants to take down his ex best friend.

Jim claims Bobby is only dating Nicole to be on the series. “He wanted to be on the show,” Jim says. “He would have done anything to be on the show.”

Amber then says that before Nicole signed on, he “was waiting for the contracts to come in … [if they] weren’t coming in, he was hightailing it out of there.”

Defying Andy’s no reunion props rule (after Porsha Williams beat down Kenya Moore) Jim pulls out photos of Bobby over the years to prove he’s a fame whore.

Bobby insists he’s not, but his claims that he just happened to be there at all of these events featuring the women don’t exactly come across as convincing.

Dina Manzo can’t believe what she’s hearing.

“This show,” she says, “is so f—ked up.”

No arguments here.

Table Flipping Fiend
