"I'm officially a children's book author," Clarkson first season tweeted on Tuesday. "River Rose and the Magical Lullaby comes out this October!"
Clarkson shared a video explaining how her interest in writing came about.
"It's kind of a cool thing to be on a plane with my daughter, we were going on trips to the U.K. and Asia and Australia, all these amazing places that she was too little to remember," Clarkson said in the clip with the 19-month-old girl on her lap.
"Basically I started writing down these little fun stories -- of like when we went to Australia and she got to hang out with some kangaroos."
Over time, Clarkson's little tidbits and adventures with her child developed into "little stories."
"I guess my hope is for little kids to read River Rose and the Magical Lullaby and be inspired by it, and know they can achieve anything," Clarkson said, "and still dream big and make big things happen."
The singer then joked about River Rose, "Ya'll, she is out of hand. I can't even get her to work, I'm pulling this train all by myself. She's like sleeping on the job, she's eating all the time -- she's always hungry."
The picture book, published by HarperCollins, will apparently include an original lullaby Clarkson wrote and performed.
The 33-year-old singer, who's currently expecting her second child with husband Brandon Blackstock, gave fans a series of three hints about her new collaboration with illustrator Laura Hughes on Twitter in the days leading up to her big news.
Clarkson teased images of balloons and the words "magical, fun, lullaby and escape." She also shared a picture of a director's chair with the phrase "River Rose Talent" on it as well as her very own Super Bowl commercial featuring the little "diva."
River Rose and the Magical Lullaby will be available on October 4, 2016 but can be pre-ordered online now.
"That week was just filled with so much angst. It was really the first time since this whole thing started that I started to doubt everything... I make mistakes, and I think anyone would when on a journey like this, but this was the week where I thought my mistakes might really cost me the love that I came here to find," Higgins wrote in his People blog.
During the Group Date this week, Leah Block was upset because she had yet to receive a one-on-one date with Higgins when he opted to take Caila Quinn on her second.
"[Leah] was really hurt that I had taken Caila on a second date before I had taken her on a first one. I actually think I was so worried about upsetting [Emily Ferguson] and [Olivia Caridi] for being on the two-on-one without having had a one-on-one date that I thought Leah would understand," Higgins explained.
"But I was wrong, and I really can see where she is coming from. In fact she told me that she would've actually preferred the two-on-one. Like I said, I'm not perfect and this was definitely one of the mistakes I made this week."
Higgins "hated hurting" Block and felt "awful" about the situation.
"But [I] didn't know how I could fix it in this moment... Plus at this point I was so on-edge about spending too much time with any one girl after everyone seemed so upset about me and [Lauren Bushnell] -- I don't know. I guess it's safe to say my mind was spinning at this point, and it really felt like I couldn't do anything right," Higgins admitted.
Higgins said the ride back to the mainland from the island was really awkward.
"Girls were completely avoiding me and whispering to each other most of the way. I actually was worried that many of them might leave once we docked, and I half expected some of them not to come to the after party that night. Maybe more than any other time in this entire journey, I felt like I had possibly ruined everything. I had let these women down and maybe there was no repairing it," Higgins said.
Higgins realized the issue was giving Bushnell too much attention, however, that still confused him because he was very conscious of spending too much time with a particular girl on a Group Date or leaving someone out.
"I decided as I was getting ready for the night that I needed to step up and fix what was wrong. I couldn't risk losing these amazing women, and I needed to take this problem head-on. It's why you saw me come to the party with such a sense of purpose. I didn't want to hide from the problem, I wanted to address it and repair it if there was any way to repair it," he said.
"It wasn't just [Joelle "JoJo" Fletcher] and [Becca Tilley] and Leah either. [Lauren Himle] was obviously upset. [Amanda Stanton] seemed extremely upset too. Really the only person that didn't seem upset was Lauren B... After talking to each one of them things seemed better. I wasn't sure that all the issues were cleared up, but I definitely felt like we were back on track."
It turned out there was actually a rumor going around that Higgins had told Bushnell she was the only woman he cared about, which sparked all the tension on the date.
"As lovely as Lauren B. is, that was definitely not true... Initially I was baffled. These women that had just been having such a great time suddenly seemed mad at me or at least didn't care about me anymore. It was like someone flipped a switch," he noted.
Another mistake Higgins owned was the fact he dumped Caridi on the two-on-one date with a rose in his hand, which made her think she had won him over Ferguson.
"One thing I feel really badly about was that I picked up the rose when I went to go talk to Olivia. In all honesty, I'm not really sure why I did that," the Bachelor confessed.
"There were so many other things on my mind that it must've just been instinct as I knew I was making my decision and I usually pick up the rose when I do that on other dates. But this wasn't like other dates. Another mistake and one that I regret to this day. Told you, far from perfect."
The 43-year-old reality TV star spent just under a year behind bars after she was initially sentenced in October 2014 to 15 months in jail. Teresa, a mother of four girls, was released from Federal Correctional Institution in Danbury, CT, on December 23.
"I mean there was mold in the bathrooms. There was not running water constantly. The showers were freezing cold... I mean, the living conditions were really horrible. Like, horrible," Teresa said during a Tuesday appearance on Good Morning America.
"There were some nights that we didn't even have heat... It was -- it was hell."
When Teresa first got there, she bought headphones the very next day because of all the unpleasant sounds she heard at night. For example, her female inmates reportedly engaged in a lot of sexual activity.
"So thank God for commissary," Teresa said while laughing. "But I just went underneath the blanket. And we had a fan in our room. Like, this huge fan. And they would put that on every single night, so you can't hear anything."
Teresa luckily got a job in her prison's kitchen, where she basically fell into a nice daily routine.
"I wiped tables after breakfast. Three days a week, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday. That was my job. I loved my job," Teresa said on GMA, adding that she earned 12 cents an hour and her first paycheck was for $1.60.
While Teresa insisted her fellow inmates were "amazing" and helped one another, there were a lot of altercations that resulted in some women getting "shipped out."
"Believe me... I got pointed at and they were trying to start drama with me. But I just walked away... It was nothing like being on The Real Housewives of New Jersey," Teresa explained.
"Let me tell you... when you go to prison it's a whole different -- there's a lot of drama. That's all there is, is drama. And I never lived with so many women in my life before. I mean that's all they -- they thrive on drama. It was crazy to me."
But Teresa found relaxation and an escape through yoga. She told GMA she worked out three times per day, and sometimes her fitness regiments included Pilates and outdoor track.
"Yoga changed my life. I'm going to get certified in yoga," Teresa said.
Teresa and her husband Joe Giudice, also 43, were charged with 41 counts of financial fraud -- which included failure to pay taxes, hiding assets and submitting fake loan applications -- in March 2014. Joe will spend more than three years in jail beginning next month.
The former The Celebrity Apprentice contestant said she didn't even realize she was breaking the law.
"There was no intent to commit a crime. I didn't know I was committing a crime," Teresa said.
"I got sentenced. I got served time. I did what I had to do and now I'm moving past it... It, you know, broke my heart because I was always growing up the good girl, always did everything right, crossed every 't,' dotted every 'i.' And, you know, so it was... I was sad for my daughters. And I was upset."
Luckily now, Teresa's legal troubles are pretty much behind her.
"[We're not in] foreclosure any longer, thank you, God. And our restitution's paid off. We're in -- thank God -- you know, in good shape," Teresa noted.
"Maybe I needed that time for myself to reflect and just and everything and life and just to become, you know, a better person and grow and just to be a better mother, better wife, better daughter, better human being through all this... We're just taking one day at a time. I'm just, you know, happy to be home, be with the girls, be with Joe. Can't get enough of them."
The reality TV star, who recently got taken off house arrest, now hopes paparazzi will come around more for positive reasons going forward.
Teresa's tell-all memoir Turning the Tables: From Housewife to Inmate and Back Again hits shelves Tuesday, February 9.
Lauren, a 32-year-old nutritionist from Bladenboro, NC, was ousted from The Biggest Loser after she fell below the yellow line by posting one of the two lowest weight-loss percentages at the weigh-in.
The rest of the season's cast then voted Lauren out instead of Felicia Buffkin, a 29-year-old nanny from Raleigh, NC, who was also in jeopardy.
After each remaining contestant got a mind-blowing makeover and was reunited with at least one loved one, they had to get back to business.
At the week's challenge, each player competed with one family member or loved one. The pairs were required to run weights back and forth and then pull an extremely heavy sled to the finish line.
Erin Willett ended up winning the challenge with her boyfriend and they received a trip to The Biggest Loser resort across the country following the finale. Erin also earned herself a one-pound advantage on the scale.
Once the weigh-in commenced, Erin stepped on the scale first.
Erin dropped from 188 to 182 pounds, losing six pounds. With her one-pound advantage, Erin posted a 3.72% weight-loss percentage.
Lauren shed five pounds and posted a 2.72% weight-loss percentage after falling from 184 to 179 pounds.
Felicia fell from 185 to 183 pounds, losing two pounds and posting a 1.08% weight-loss percentage.
Stephen Kmet dropped from 238 to 228 pounds. He shed 10 pounds and therefore posted a 4.20% weight-loss percentage.
Jacky Kmet lost nine pounds and posted a 3.78% weight-loss percentage. She fell from 238 to 229 pounds.
Roberto Hernandez dropped from 259 to 250 pounds, losing nine pounds and posting a 3.47% weight-loss percentage.
Colby Wright shed nine pounds and posted a 3.49% weight-loss percentage. He fell from 258 to 249 pounds.
As a result, Felicia and Lauren fell below the yellow line, and Lauren ended up being ousted from the competition. Lauren called her time on the ranch a rollercoaster, but she was so glad to have Jennifer Widerstrom as her trainer.
In a post-The Biggest Loser update, Lauren started the show weighing 234 pounds and currently weighs 168 pounds. Thanks to her 66-pound weight-loss, Lauren finally feels worthy of love. She's also able to be more active with her son, and Lauren's newfound confidence is rubbing off on him.
The Keeping Up with the Kardashians star and Kocktails with Khloe host has split from her NBA-playing boyfriend, E! News reported.
According to a source, "nothing really [bad] happened" between them. "They just barely saw each other the past few months and it died out."
Less than a month ago, Kardashian confirmed her relationship with the Houston Rockets player was "good" and she was traveling to Texas often to spend time with him.
The pair began dating in July of 2015, and the following month, Kardashian threw Harden a massive 26th birthday party with many celebrities, including Kim Kardashian's husband Kanye West and fellow NBA players, in attendance.
Harden then nobly stuck around during Lamar Odom's health crisis when Kardashian remained at this side in the hospital for months after he was found unconscious in a Nevada brothel from a drug overdose. It was a tough time for Kardashian since she had to juggle strong feelings for both men and divide her free time between them.
Kardashian previously told E! News that Harden was "really supportive and really understanding" during the whole ordeal with Odom. Kardashian just tried to communicate well with Harden and constantly ask what he was or was not comfortable with.
Ben eliminated Jennifer Saviano, a 25-year-old small business owner from Fort Lauderdale, FL, at the first Rose Ceremony last night; Olivia Caridi, a 23-year-old news anchor from Austin, TX, during her two-on-one date; Leah Block, a 25-year-old event planner from Denver, CO, after she snuck into his hotel room to chat but only had bad things to say about another girl; and Lauren Himle, a 25-year-old kindergarten teacher from Ann Arbor, MI, during the episode's second Rose Ceremony.
The Bachelor broadcast began right where last week's episode had left off, with Emily, a 22-year-old cocktail waitress and twin from Las Vegas, NV, ranting about how selfish, disrespectful and fake Olivia Caridi was and Ben confronting Olivia about all the negative comments.
Olivia explained she had a target on her back after getting the First Impression Rose and a subsequent Group Date rose. She said the girls faulted her for being aggressive but she's just a confident woman by nature. Olivia said it was hard to socialize with the group when she knew they weren't her biggest fans.
Olivia also gushed about how intellectual she is and introverted compared to the other bachelorettes who just worry about their hair and painting their nails. Olivia said she reads alone in her room.
Meanwhile, Emily told the cameras she hoped Ben wasn't "falling for this act" Olivia put on. However, Ben opted out of sending Olivia home after their private conversation. Emily felt insecure and questioned her connection with Ben solely because of the fact he wanted to keep Olivia around. Emily just didn't want to be the root of drama in Ben's eyes.
A Rose Ceremony then took place and Ben handed out roses in the following order: Caila Quinn, a 23-year-old software sales representative from Hudson, OH; Lauren Bushnell, a 25-year-old flight attendant from Marina Del Rey, CA; Joelle "JoJo" Fletcher, a 24-year-old real estate developer from Dallas, TX; Becca Tilley, a 26-year-old chiropractic assistant from San Diego, CA; Leah; and then Emily.
Olivia, Lauren H. and Amanda Stanton, a 25-year-old esthetician from Rancho Santa Margarita, CA, already had roses from their dates with Ben in Mexico.
Jennifer was therefore ousted from the competition and she was upset because she didn't feel Ben had enough time to get to know her. Amanda hated seeing good girls leave when someone like Olivia was still in the running for Ben's heart and getting so many second chances. But Olivia was planning to fight for Ben until he became her husband.
Ben and his remaining bachelorettes then traveled to The Bahamas, where Caila received the first one-on-one date of the week.
Leah was "speechless" and called Ben's date decision a "slap in the face" because she had yet to receive a single one-on-one date with him and Caila was now getting her second. Leah was pissed because Ben was giving mostly all of the other girls plentiful time or at least validation through roses handed out at times other than the Rose Ceremonies. Caila felt so lucky and was also in shock about the whole ordeal.
Leah also knew that if Ben was unsure about Caila, he would've taken her on the two-on-one date instead of a solo date. Leah wondered whether she should quit the show at this point, but Ben explained to the cameras he needed more time with Caila because their first date was with two other men around the whole time.
For their date, Ben and Caila went deep-sea fishing on a boat and relaxed. Ben thought Caila was funny, beautiful, sexy and smart, but he wanted to get to know the deeper person behind her bubbly attitude and big smile. When he basically asked Caila to open up and become vulnerable at dinner that night, she accused him of putting her on the spot in the hopes she cries.
Caila admitted she just wasn't ready to express herself so deeply yet, and Ben assumed Caila was going to choose to go home. But instead, Caila gave a very confusing speech about how she's falling in love with Ben yet fears she might hurt him since his biggest insecurity is being unlovable.
Caila also attempted to explain to Ben that her heart told her that he was the right man for her, but her mind said differently. All she knew is that she had strong feelings for the Bachelor and loved how he just "understood" her. Caila thought having Ben in her life would make her really happy.
Caila's mixed emotions on dating Ben just made her more attractive to him, as she had more layers to her than he thought and showed a real authentic side of herself. Ben thought she challenged him, and he really appreciated that, so he offered her the date's rose. Ben ended up saying it was one of the best dates of his life.
The next day, Ben embarked on a Group Date with Lauren B, Lauren H., Becca, Amanda, JoJo, and Leah, who was in search of some answers.
For their date, Ben took the bachelorettes out on a boat and then swimming with pigs. The situation started to get awkward when Leah told Lauren H. that Ben was basically just obsessing over Lauren B. the whole time and it was clear they had an incredible connection. JoJo also struggled with how much attention Ben was giving Lauren B. in particular.
Ben didn't know why the girls seemed tense and standoffish, but JoJo tried to explain the situation to him to the best of her ability. Ben couldn't grasp how he could go on a Group Date and keep all the women happy.
Leah then cried to Ben about the fact she had yet to receive a one-on-one date. She explained she genuinely felt ready for a serious commitment, and Ben agreed, insisting that's why he wanted to keep her around. Ben begged Leah to make the most of the Group Date for him, and while she did, she later vented to Lauren H. that Ben was an "idiot" for not giving her more of a chance.
That night, Ben confronted Becca about how she was also a little weird throughout the day. Becca explained it was tough to see him with other women, especially Lauren B., and some of the bachelorettes can't help but shut down occasionally because of that.
Becca noted she was only acting strange because she "really, really" liked Ben, which he found cute and endearing. Ben acknowledged his relationship with Becca had strengthened that night.
Ben realized he needed to be more discreet about his bonds with certain women on Group Dates. He just wanted to be fair, honest and open with his bachelorettes.
Meanwhile, Leah could tell Lauren B. was feeling very confident in her relationship with Ben, and because she wasn't herself, the image really upset her. Leah then spoke to Ben alone about how Lauren B. wasn't being real around him because she behaved differently in the house with all the girls. Leah insisted to Ben that because of who Lauren B. is, if he chose her in the end, things would never work out.
Leah's comments bothered Ben even though he wasn't sure whether to believe them. Ben then talked to Lauren B. about what one bachelorette had said. Lauren B. cried because she didn't understand why a woman would say that. Lauren B. felt like she got along with pretty much everybody in the house.
Once the conversation ended, Lauren B. bawled to the girls how someone had thrown her under the bus. Leah promised she hadn't said anything to Ben, and when Becca asked her for confirmation, Leah flat out said "nope" she didn't mention Lauren B.
"I would never be the type of person to single someone out and be like, 'Oh Lauren B.' or whatever," Leah told the girls.
Lauren B. just hoped that whatever was said to Ben wouldn't have a negative impact on her relationship with him. She felt sick to her stomach.
Back at the house that night, women including Emily, JoJo and Amanda talked about how it was crazy someone spoke badly about Lauren B., and everyone assumed it had to be Leah despite her denial. Emily comforted Lauren B. by saying Leah was just insecure in her relationship with Ben and jealous. Emily then flat out called Leah "a liar."
Without anyone knowing except Lauren H., Leah snuck out of her hotel to meet Ben at his. Ben was shocked to see her at his door, but at the same time, he was excited to talk to her more. Leah had told the cameras if she could get rid of Lauren B., she'd have a better chance to end up with Ben.
And instead of bonding more with Ben, Leah just continued to rant and rave about how catty and disingenuous Lauren B. was. Leah gave Ben an example by revealing Lauren B. had noted, "Oh, if Amanda ends up with Ben, that's great." Leah said Ben would eventually find out who the real Lauren B. is because he's a smart guy.
Ben was really hoping Leah would make the most of their time together, but she didn't. He then acknowledged their was a disconnect between them, and while he had an amazing first impression of her, their relationship never really grew from there. He said something was missing. As a result, Ben sent Leah home right on the spot. Their initial spark wasn't enough.
Leah cried about how she never would've talked about Lauren B. had she known Ben was on the fence about their relationship. Leah was blindsided and called Ben "a fool" for letting her go before really getting to know her. She said he "missed out."
Ben was upset because there was so much darkness surrounding his journey at this point. He became less confident about the fact he could leave The Bachelor with a wife.
The next day, Ben embarked on a two-on-one date with Olivia and Emily. Tension ran high the entire time, but Olivia was certain she wasn't going anywhere. The threesome went on a boat ride and then spent some time on a private beach when the weather unfortunately wasn't good. Emily hoped Olivia would show her true colors to Ben on this date.
Olivia told the cameras her relationship with Ben was an "all-consuming, ever-present, constantly-growing kind of love."
During their alone time on the date, Olivia bragged to Ben about how intellectual, strong and grounded she is. She then revealed to the Bachelor how she was feeling about him.
"From the moment I met you, I just knew it was right. And I'm just -- I'm in love with you," Olivia told Ben before he smiled and she kissed him.
Emily was starting to fall in love with Ben and told him afterwards that she would love to experience life with him at her side. He was excited to see this new side of Emily and get to know her without the attachment to her twin sister.
Ben then asked Olivia to take a walk with him on the beach. With a rose in hand, both Olivia and Emily assumed she was getting the rose. However, Ben let Olivia go and said he couldn't reciprocate the feelings she had for him. He also worried his feelings might never get to that point. Ben just had relationships with other women that were further along.
After giving Emily the rose, Olivia was extremely hurt and cried alone on the beach as Ben and Emily left in a boat together. Olivia bawled saying Ben had eliminated a really good person.
This week in The Bahamas left Ben feeling discouraged and alone. He was falling for a couple of women and simply wasn't in the mood to have multiple conversations at the cocktail party.
Therefore, he decided to cancel the party and head right into the Rose Ceremony. Lauren B. was upset she wouldn't get the chance to fix things with Ben, while JoJo cried because she had planned to tell Ben she was falling in love with him this night.
At the Rose Ceremony, Ben gave roses to Becca, JoJo and then Lauren B.
Since Emily, Caila and Amanda had roses already, Lauren H. was sent home. Lauren H. didn't get it because she was starting to fall in love with Ben and thought they were getting along great. She didn't understand why it was so tough to fall in love.
Although she won't share his name because they've only been dating for three weeks, Molzahn told Bustle she's crazy about a new guy.
"I'm going to marry him," Molzahn told the website of her new boyfriend. "He's so cute... it was the exact right timing."
Molzahn, 31, revealed she met her match through a friend who goes to the same church as this man.
"When you know, you know," Molzahn insisted. "I've been waiting to meet this guy for a long time."
Because Molzahn wasn't invited to the wedding of Bachelor in Paradise co-stars Jade Roper and Tanner Tolbert, she was able to spend more time with this man.
"There was a reason why I wasn't supposed to be at that wedding," she told Bustle. "I ended up having the best second date of my life."
Just three days ago, the beautiful blonde captioned an image on Instagram saying she has shared "big parts" of her heart.
Molzahn initially vied for Jake Pavelka's heart on Season 14 of The Bachelor and finished as the runner-up. After competing on Bachelor Pad and experiencing traumatic heartbreak from her split with longtime boyfriend Kiptyn Locke, Molzahn decided to put herself out there again and join the second-season cast of Bachelor in Paradise.
Molzahn, a city girl at heart, fell in love with former The Bachelorette suitor Joshua Albers, however, she didn't think she could make a long-distance relationship work with him. Due to their different lifestyles, Molzahn called it quits with the Idaho welder on the last day of filming.
Although Caitlyn has insisted Kris was aware of her tendencies to dress and look like a woman while they were married and he was still living as a man, Kris told Harper's Bazaar in its March issue, which hits shelves February 16, she truly had no idea.
Kris said she learned about the former Olympian's desire to become a woman "the same time as everybody," which would've been in July of last year when Caitlyn introduced her new identity to the world through a beautiful spread in Vanity Fair magazine.
Despite the fact Caitlyn recently said she was on hormones and had her "boobs removed" when she was dating Kris, the Kardashian momager told Harper's Bazaar, "We were already divorced. And what are you going to do? You have to just be there. And you have to accept that everyone is going to have something."
Kris continued, "I think at some point, although it was difficult and, uh, a challenge... I just have to let it go. And try to be tolerant [through] prayer. God. You know, just trying to understand. It takes time. But time is a wonderful healer. And we have two children together. It's important for my kids to see our family strong and united."
Kris and Caitlyn had Kylie Jenner and Kendall Jenner together, who joined their children from previous marriages.
"I never really thought about [what it meant to be transgender] before," Kris explained. "And I'd never known anyone who was transgender. I didn't even know what the word meant. Because there's transgender and transsexual, and there's... I mean, I just didn't know much about it. I definitely got a big education."
Kris couldn't help but question the validity of her marriage since Caitlyn clearly wanted to be a woman for quite some time. Caitlyn had even tried cross-dressing as a young boy.
"I just doubted the relationship. You know, 'What were those 20-plus years all about?' And I felt like, at some point anybody would feel like, 'Wow, why was I put through this? For 20 years I could have been, you know, doing something else,'" Kris confessed. "But I really do believe everything happens for a reason."
In fact, Kris owned up to the fact she wished her late husband Robert Kardashian was still around to help her through all of this. She'd love having a shoulder to lean or even cry on.
"I had a wonderful, beautiful life with Robert. He was just an amazing man," Kris told the magazine. "I always wish I could call Robert right now. That's an everyday thing."
Kris is currently dating Corey Gamble and expressed how she's not the least bit phased by haters or negativity. She called people who criticize her family bitter, jealous and angry.
"I got the 411. She got engaged Saturday night. There is a ring," Frankel, who's had her share of drama with Lesseps on the Bravo reality series, told Andy Cohen's Sirius XM show Radio Andy on Monday.
"I think it's a yellow diamond and it's decently large, and she called Page Six right after so, it's a normal engagement! You know what I mean? Isn't that what everybody does?"
While one might sense a little sarcasm in her voice, Frankel clarified, "I'm actually, I'm happy though. Like, if she's happy... I had a good feeling, I don't know about him or them or whatever."
Frankel then revealed D'Agostino previously dated Housewife Ramona Singer and used to be "friends with benefits" with Housewife Sonja Morgan, so the ladies gave her "a little intel recently."
Cohen laughed at the remark and said, "What are the chances," to which Frankel replied, "On Housewives, very high. He's the new Harry Dubin. Harry Dubin for those anybody who hasn't watched the Housewives is the other man who banged every Housewife except for like [Porsha Williams], I think."
Frankel, who previously starred on Bethenny Ever After and had her own talk show, then spoke some kind words about Lesseps.
"What's funny is, you know, how I can't hide my feelings about things or [my] opinions, and I feel happy," she told Cohen. "I feel excited for [LuAnn]. She's having a moment. It's exciting. She wasn't that happy this summer, and I feel like who knows, I suck at relationships. I'm not one to talk about anyone's relationship. I'm in the 12 year divorce."
Frankel filed for divorce from her estranged husband, Jason Hoppy, in January 2013. Their split was anything but amicable, as they've been dueling in court over their finances ever since.
As for Lesseps' engagement, D'Agostino reportedly popped the question in honor of Valentine's Day.
"Thomas just couldn't wait and gave Luann an 8-carat canary yellow diamond ring. Luann is 'over the moon' in love with Thomas, considers him her soul mate and is so happy and grateful to have found love a second time," Lesseps' representative told Us Weekly in a statement.
"The two were introduced by their mutual friend and another RHONY cast member, Dorinda Medley, a few months ago and have been inseparable ever since. The happy couple are celebrating jetting off for a ski vacation in Vail, Colorado, this week."
Lesseps was previously married to Count Alexandre de Lesseps from 1993 to 2009 and the pair share two adult children.
Harrison has been single since his 2012 divorce from Gwen, his wife of 18 years, but now he's ready to find someone special.
The only problem? He's not exactly taking an active approach. Harrison is hoping someone will fix him up with a fabulous woman, as he's not interesting in meeting women online, using dating apps or asking out bachelorettes from The Bachelor franchise.
"I wait for people like you to say, 'Oh my gosh, I have the greatest person,'" Harrison, 44, told The Daily Beast. "I need to quit working a little bit and maybe work on my own life a little bit."
However, working on The Bachelor has been "cathartic" for the host because after his difficult divorce, he got to do what he loves every day. So now that his son Joshua, 14, and daughter Taylor, 12, have dealt with the split and are "good," Harrison -- who insisted he's also "good" now -- believes it's probably time to take dating seriously.
"I would love to find love now. Look, as you can tell by the book and by the show, I'm a hopeless, helpless romantic just like everybody else, so hopefully I'll follow my own advice one day," Harrison explained.
"I probably became more understanding and empathetic about The Bachelor, and why people are on it, than I was the first 10 years of the show when I was married, because I really do understand how hard it is out there, how hard it is to meet somebody that you really have a connection with. I probably get it more now than ever."
Harrison confessed it actually "sucks out there" to be single.
"People want help. People need help. We all want companionship, and we all want to find that someone, that true love," noted Harrison, who recently penned a romance novel called The Perfect Letter.
"I think there is an insatiable appetite for romance and for love stories, which is partly why these books and movies do so well. It's why The Bachelor's been on for 15 years and is more relevant now than it's ever been. No matter what, that story never gets old."
The Bachelor is currently airing its 20th season Monday nights from 8-10PM ET/PT on ABC.
"I am very excited to be back," Teresa, who got released from prison in December after 11 months behind bars, told Bravo's The Daily Dish. "For me, this season is all about letting go of the past and embracing the future. People are calling me Teresa 2.0."
According to Bravo, Season 7 will feature Teresa as she repairs fractured relationships with her family and friends and prepares for her husband Joe Giudice to leave the family and surrender to his 41-month prison sentence.
Teresa, 43, just spent the Christmas holiday with her sister-in-law Melissa, and the pair seem ready to bury the issues of their past.
"We're back! This season for me is all about family, fun, friendships and fashion," Melissa, 36, said in a statement. "I can't wait for you to see what we've been up to and how much our [three] kids have grown."
Meanwhile, Jacqueline, 45, is focused on Nicholas but would love to become best friends with Teresa again. The two women were original cast members together.
"I'm baaaaack! I can't get enough of my Bravo family!" Jacqueline, who made many guest appearances in Season 6, added. "Sometimes a little break is all I need to jump back in and bring my best! Looking forward to new beginnings. XOXO."
The rest of the cast and the premiere date will be disclosed at a later time. It's unclear whether Season 6 stars Dina Manzo and twins Teresa Aprea and Nicole Napolitano plan to come back to The Real Housewives of New Jersey.
The series' sixth edition wrapped in November 2014.
The Voice coach was photographed driving Stefani and her three sons with ex-husband Gavin Rossdale to Zuma's soccer game in Los Angeles' Studio City on Saturday, Us Weekly reported.
Shelton, 39, and Stefani, 46, were adorably all smiles in the car and her family spent the afternoon playing flag football, eating Girl Scout cookies and enjoying the sun at the park. Stefani also apparently brought her pet parrot Dodo to the family outing.
Stefani was rocking a pink tank top, black-lace bra, gold chains and a fanny pack, while the country singer was wearing his usual flannel shirt and trucker hat.
In addition to Zuma, 7, the No Doubt songstress is also a mom to Kingston, 9, and Apollo, 23 months. Shelton has no children but allegedly wanted to start a family with ex-wife Miranda Lambert badly when they were together and going strong.
The couple is certainly putting breakup rumors to shame, especially after Shelton took to Twitter last week to slam all rumors he's unhappy with the beautiful blonde. A few days prior to Zuma's soccer game this past weekend, Shelton and Stefani were spotted leaving a music studio together in LA, prompting speculation there could be a collaboration on the horizon.
Stefani and Shelton confirmed they're dating in early November after being photographed getting touchy-feely at Halloween parties. They've been inseparable and very lovey-dovey in public ever since.
The Voice's upcoming tenth season is set to premiere Monday, February 29 at 8PM ET/PT on NBC and will feature Stefani mentoring Shelton's team during the infamous Battle Rounds.
Shelton has served as a mainstay coach on the show since its inaugural season debuted back in 2011. Christina Aguilera will be returning to her big red chair next season as Stefani's replacement.
The True Tori stars left their home in Calabasas, CA, and moved into a new $7,500-per month rental house in Encino, CA, People reported.
The 3,900 square-ft. home reportedly features five bedrooms, four baths, a spa, a pool, a gym and a media room.
The move is surprising considering reports Spelling and McDermott have been struggling financially for years. Spelling, 42, is also being sued by American Express for failure to pay an outstanding balance of $37,981.97 on her credit card.
However, a source close to Spelling told People they have relocated just so the children can be closer to their schools.
In 2013, Spelling admitted her family runs into money issues, especially because she was raised living a rich lifestyle and has a lot of loved ones to support. McDermott, 49, later denied being completely broke.
Spelling was born into wealth as the daughter of Aaron Spelling, a famous Hollywood producer. In her career, she's starred in numerous reality TV spinoffs with McDermott as well as designed a jewelry line and released a memoir.
The couple wed in 2006 and began having children the following year. McDermott also has a son from his previous marriage.
Kim, 35, posted a nature photo featuring a dirt path and an unidentified man's arm on Instagram Sunday afternoon with the following caption: "Super Soul Sunday time before Super Bowl Sunday time with Khloe & Lamar."
The trio then watched the big game together Sunday night.
"I'm rooting for the panthers but at the same time I want Manning to go out with a win," Khloe, 31, tweeted yesterday. "Either way I'm pigging out and excited for Beyonce."
Odom was found unconscious in a Las Vegas brothel October 13 from a drug overdose. His path to recovery has been a long one ever since, however, reports of small improvements have surfaced over the last few months and Khloe has admirably stayed at the former NBA player's side through it all.
Odom, 36, was released from Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles last month although a source claims he continues to receive both out-patient and home therapy.
"He still needs help walking," the source told People. "Lamar is not driving himself and instead has a driver. Whenever he leaves the house, he looks happy. He looks alert and often smiles. He is definitely looking more like the old Lamar."
