DONNA KIMMINS ’16
For all you Real Housewives fans, you may be shocked to hear that Orange County has recently dropped two of the housewives for their upcoming season. Gretchen Rossi and Alexis Bellino were reportedly not asked back to join season nine of the show. An inside source at Bravo TV claims that Bellino was previously fired during the past season and allegedly asked back to be a part of the show later on in the series. With the next season gearing up for filming within the next month, Bravo is short on time to find replacements for the two blonde housewives.
As for my personal favorite celebrity family, Kim Kardashian was spotted out and about rocking a fancier look than usual. Since giving birth to her child, North West, Kim has been keeping things low key and casual. Sources say she is back and looking better than ever. Speaking of Kardashians, reports have stated that Khloe has been spotted out in the public eye recently as well. While she may still be upset over the recent issues with her husband, Lamar Odom, she appears to be better than ever. A close friend of Khloe’s has stated that she is still upset over the matter, but has began to move on and focus on new beginnings.
Sources say Khloe is not necessarily going to file for divorce just yet, but she has allegedly given up on any hopes for saving the marriage after all. Khloe and her sister Kourtney, have been spotted on the streets of Las Vegas dressed to impress on more than one occasion.
In other news, Lamar Odom is not the only celebrity dealing with addiction. Zac Efron has reportedly finished his stint in rehab for alcohol and cocaine addiction. Sources say the Efron and friends once reportedly did 50,000 dollars worth in damage to a hotel room at the MGM Grand. When questioned further about the topic, Efron’s publicist stated that no further comment would be mentioned about the matter.
UPDATE: Last week I talked about Miley Cyrus and her recent transformation. At the I Heart Radio Music Festival this past week in Las Vegas, Cyrus reportedly broke down in tears while singing her new song “Wrecking Ball.” Reports say that Cyrus and her fiancé Liam Hensworth have officially called it quits and her performance undoubtedly confirmed these rumors. Cyrus still has yet to decide whether or not she will keep her engagement ring. There are rumors that she has still held on to it. Hemsworth has allegedly already moved on to bigger and better things as of September 14. At a club in Las Vegas, Hemsworth was spotted spending time with Mexican pop singer, Eiza Gonzalez. Sources have since stated that the two are in love and have a long future ahead of them.
Friends of Cyrus have revealed that she is both upset and embarrassed that Hemsworth has moved on so publicly and quickly. Chris Hemsworth, Liam’s brother, has stated that Liam is doing well and recent reports say Cyrus has turned to her family for support.
Billy Ray Cyrus appeared on Piers Morgan Live and answered questions about his daughter and her latest rendezvous. He told the show that she’s still his daughter and he will always be her daddy, no matter what the young starlet does next.
Justin Timberlake has recently spoken up in support of Cyrus as well. He stated that he may not agree with how she presents herself as a star but he doesn’t criticize her and her work. Britney Spears also chimed in on Cyrus’ recent transformation too. She agrees with Justin and thinks that the young star is on fire and full of energy. Cyrus is also rumored to have had romantic relations with the producer of her album, “Bangerz,” Mike Will Made It.
Cyrus is set to guest star on Saturday Night Live on October 5. Stay tuned for next week’s edition of the A-list with an update on the current events in pop cutlure.
