Monday Dose of News! Who are we talking about now!
Scott Disick used to make a point of smiling for the cameras at public events, but as a miserable-looking Scott walked the red carpet at Taste of Beverly Hills with his girlfriend, Kourtney Kardashian, it was clear that those days are long gone. “There was a lot of tension, and Scott looked mad. At one point, Kourtney’s mom, Kris, snarled at Scott to smile,” says a witness. For the Kardashians, appearances are everything — and in this case, an insider says, appearances didn’t lie. Fed up with the Kardashian clan — especially Kris — Scott has been mulling a lucrative offer to write a scathing tell-all about the family. “He has vowed not to sell out Kourtney personally, but he doesn’t mind talking about the rest of the family,” the insider shares, adding that these days, “he really can’t stand to be in the same room with Kris.” Desperate to be free of Kourtney’s mom’s “controlling” ways but eager to stay in the limelight, Scott is thinking that writing a tell-all could solve all of his problems. “He wants to break away from the Kardashian brand and do his own thing,” the insider explains. Scott is convinced that the tell-all will net him a major paycheck — but the book isn’t the only weapon in his strike-it-rich arsenal. Sick and tired of the Kardashian clan, Scott thinks he’s famous enough to break free of them. “He now wants to do his own TV show,” says an insider, adding that Scott has always believed his wild party boy lifestyle would play great on the small screen.
After one of the most dramatic — and talked-about — reunion shows of all time, Teresa Giudice exclusively reveals to In Touch that she’s ready to do the impossible: forgive her arch nemesis, fellow Real Housewives of New Jersey star Danielle Staub. “After watching the reunion special, I realized that I am a much better person,” Teresa tells In Touch about the episode everyone was buzzing about — which saw Teresa looming over her cowering rival, screaming, “Do not bring up my family!” However, despite everything Danielle has done to her — including, Teresa claims, befriending the wife of Joe’s former business partner’s lawyer in order to glean confidential information about Teresa’s affairs — Teresa is willing to forgive. And she has decided to take the high road for the sake of her daughters, Gia, 9, Gabriella, 6, Milania, 5, and Audriana, 11 months. “Danielle has been digging around my extended family, trying to find dirt on me and defame them, but I want to set the best example for my children,” Teresa says. “I just want to move on with my life.”
As Sandra Bullock attempts to put the past behind her and start a new life as a single mom, a new rumor is circulating that may humiliate her yet again. According to reports, Sandra’s ex-husband, Jesse James, may be starting another family with his new girlfriend, LA Ink star Kat Von D.
The buzz started following Kat’s Wonderland Gallery opening on September 2, when Kat and Jesse, 41, posed together on the red carpet for the first time since they began dating. Holding hands and kissing each other throughout the event, Kat and Jesse seemed unusually anxious to go public with their romance. “I’m so happy,” a glowing Kat told In Touch, adding that she has met Jesse’s kids, Chandler, 15, Jesse Jr., 12, and Sunny, 6, and that she and the Monster Garage star are definitely more than just friends. “Yeah, we’re together — duh,” she laughed. “He inspires me every day to wake up and do my best.” As enthusiastic as Kat was, though, it was her appearance that really raised eyebrows. The 28-year-old sported what appeared to be a baby bump — and that, coupled with her admission that she is in love with Jesse and that he may be “the one” — sparked talk that, just weeks into their relationship, the tattooed pair may be expecting.
When one door closes, another opens for Niecy Nash. The comedian, who recently ended her nine-year run as the host of Style Network’s Clean House, is beginning a new life as a wife after getting engaged to her boyfriend of one year, Jay Tucker, Entertainment Tonight reports. "I cannot believe that God has been this kind that he would gift me this man," Niecy, who was surprised by her fiancé with a ring last weekend, says. The pair plans to wed in May 2011
Vampire Diaries star Kat Graham is multitalented — she can also sing! The actress/pop star is mixing it up with the new video for her debut single, “Sassy,” which she wrote and co-produced (it's now available on iTunes). The video, which features the song in a mash-up with Kelis' hit "Milkshake," was produced by Fernando Garibay, who worked with Lady Gaga on her Fame Monster album.
Just little more than a month after her arrest for unruly drunken behavior, Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi is facing the music. Pleading guilty to disturbing beachgoers, the pint-size Jersey Shore star was ordered to perform community service and pay a $500 fine on September 8. Sticks and stones may break bones, but judge Damian G. Murray’s words must have especially hurt the party-loving MTV reality queen. "Going through life rude, profane, obnoxious and self-indulgent — that's not the way you want to live your life," he chastised Snooki, who was handcuffed after stumbling and swearing on the beach in Seaside Heights, N.J. on July 30. He also referred to her as a “Lindsay Lohan wannabe” just weeks after the troubled actress was released from rehab. "Embarrassed" by her boozy display, Snooki has promised to shape up. “This was a really good wake-up call to calm down,” she told In Touch after the incident.
Looking at that toned physique, it’s hard to believe that former Work Out star Jackie Warner was ever out of shape. But the 42-year-old trainer tells In Touch she had serious weight issues in college, when she ballooned from 118 pounds to 169. “I was alone in LA, and it was a huge culture shock,” recalls the Ohio native. “I was depressed and ate junk food every day.” Now starring on Thintervention (Mondays at 10 p.m. ET on Bravo), which helps people deal with the physical and emotional challenges of food addiction, Jackie opens up about how she took control of her body and life.

Despite her recent legal issues — and recent reports that while driving she allegedly clipped a stroller with a toddler in it — Lindsay Lohan wants to be a mom! The star has confided to a pal that she’s determined to stay sober and thinks the best way for her to achieve that goal is to get pregnant. According to the pal, Lindsay, 24, hates being alone and thinks a baby would make the perfect companion. She’s seen what motherhood has done for former party girl Nicole Richie and thinks it can do the same for her. “She needs to be around someone nearly 24 hours a day,” the pal says. “She thinks having a baby could straighten out her life.”
