Basically, Adrian and Flora had a very ‘Pretty Woman’ relationship — if Julia Roberts had ended up dead in a pool at the end of the movie.
The July 7 episode of Devious Maidsrevealed yet another clue to Flora’s killer, and naturally, all roads led back to Adrian Powell. Here’s how it all started: After bumping into Michael’s ex-wife at the grocery store, Marisol (Ana Ortiz) learned that Taylor used to be a “whore” — with and without the quotation marks.
But wait, it got even more bananas from there. It turns out Adrian was Taylor’s original pimp, and she wasn’t his only employee; Flora was also working for him — you know, before she was brutally raped and murdered on the first episode. Boy, that was some night, huh?
The final scene of the episode revealed that Adrian doesn’t just set up his friends with hookers, but actually watches them have sex from a two-way mirror. Nothing creepy about that. Not at all.
Valentina’s Crush… Crushed
Genevieve (Susan Lucci) did her best to help Valentina (Edy Ganem) and Remi’s (Drew Van Acker) relationship blossom, but her plan came to a crashing halt once Zoila (Judy Reyes) caught wind of it. Zoila — who is quickly becoming my my least-favorite character on any show — refused to work for Genevieve until she’d told Remi not to see Valentina anymore.
Unfortunately, her plan worked.
Rosie Vs. The Boner
Rosie’s (Dania Ramirez) sad life continued this week, as she needed several hundred dollars for new lawyer fees. Though Peri immediately shot down Rosie’s request for a loan, Spence (Grant Show) was far more willing — as was his massive boner. He later apologized for the boner, but not for the feelings behind it.
Driving Ms. Carmen
Lastly, Carmen (Roselyn Sanchez) finally scored a meeting with a big-time producer, but the kind of sweet music he wanted to make wasn’t exactly the kind you hear in the studio. And when he wasn’t busy molesting her in the backseat of a car — awkwardly driven by Sam, no less — he was kindly telling her to drop her accent. As he said, “Americans, they like Latinas, as long as they’re not too Latina.”
Carmen’s willingness to change herself has officially turned Sam off from her, which isn’t great, considering he covers her ass on a weekly basis. I wonder who will get Carmen out of her next jam?

Kris gets really drunk and decides to vandalize Kim’s gorgeous mansion on the July 7 episode of ‘Keeping Up With The Kardashians’! You’ve never seen Kim so angry and what happens will leave you shocked!
Kim Kardashian is not in the mood for fun and games! On the July 7 episode of KUWTK, Kris Jenner takes Khloe Kardashianout to dinner. But one too many tequila shots lead to a wild night that gets Kris nearly arrested!
Kris Jenner Decides To Prank Kim
Khloe is feeling incredibly left out because Kim and Kourtney Kardashian spend every single moment talking about how to plan for baby North West. But unfortunately, Khloe can’t relate because she hasn’t been blessed with motherhood quite yet. When Khloe runs to her mom for comfort, Kris suggests they have a ladies night.
Khloe isn’t exactly thrilled with the idea of hanging out with Kris because she feels like she drinks too much. This is precisely what happens! When they go out, Kris keeps ordering shots and finally Khloe tells the bartender to cut her off. Then Kris gets the grand idea to pull a crazy prank on Kim!
Khloe suggests they toilet paper her house and Kris thinks it’s a fabulous plan. The ladies go to the pharmacy to buy toilet paper and Kris is running all over like a drunk teenager! She’s trying on sunglasses, brushing her teeth and spraying shaving cream inside the store.
Finally they head over to Kim’s and you’ll never believe what they do!
Kris Jenner Almost Gets Arrested For Vandalizing Kim’s Mansion
Kris climbs Kim’s wall with the toilet paper in hand and helps Khloe get into the backyard. The two women proceed to absolutely trash Kim’s house. They spray shaving cream all over Kim’s doors, windows and flowers. They throw toilet paper everywhere — it looks like a winter wonderland from hell. But the best part is that Kanye West is about to arrive at the house any second!
Kris and Khloe finally leave the house and Kim turns on her cameras and sees the damage. She walks outside with Jonathan Cheban and she absolutely freaks out!
After calling her mom and sister to yell at them, she decides to confront them. The next day Kim and Kourtney go to Kris’ house and scream at Kris and Khloe. Kim tells them that she could have them arrested for vandalism and Kris tries to tell Kim that it’s a joke and just chill out. Eventually the women work it out but we’ve never seen Kim so angry!
Tune in next Sunday to E! at 9 p.m. for more KUWTK.
Dexter’s got a lot on his plate — Debra’s disintegrating, Dr. Evelyn Vogel is onto him, and oh yeah, there’s a guy scooping out brains all over Miami. Just another day in the life!
When we last left Dexter (Michael C. Hall), Dr. Evelyn Vogel (Charlotte Rampling) had dropped that bomb — she knew about Harry’s (James Remar) code. How?
Dr. Vogel: The Creator Of Harry’s Code
Well it turns out she not only knows about it, she invented it. Back when Dexter was a child, Harry sought the psychopath expert out to help him deal with Dexter’s dark urges. And so the serial killer who only kills bad guys was born. Gotta say — I love this development.
“I can’t help but think of myself as your spiritual mother,” Dr. Evelyn — sort of creepily — tells Dexter. “You’re perfect,” she tells Dexter as she wraps her arms around him in a nurturing way.
The Brain Scooper Strikes Again
Anyways, the other new person in Dexter’s life, the Brain-Scooper-Outer guy, is making contact with Dr. Evelyn. Apparently he or she is an old patient back to exact revenge. And since Dexter sorta owes Evelyn now, he agrees to hunt down the guy (pretty sure he was gonna do that anyways though).
The Brain Scooper (we’ve gotta think of a better name for this guy) has made a second kill. And though it at first appears that the killer has been revealed, and that Dexter has been able to track him down, we find out that the Brain Scooper actually forced someone to do the killing this time, and then shot that guy in the head — three kills make a trend!
Debra Or Dexter Morgan: Who’s The Real Killer In The Family?
Now, let’s talk about Debra Morgan (Jennifer Carpenter). After seeing Dexter murder her jewel thief mark (and/or boyfriend?), she’s even more screwed up, and she still doesn’t have the diamonds she was supposed to recover.
So she’s on the hunt — unfortunately someone’s hunting her. Namely El Sapo, a mob hit man who is also out for the diamonds. He lets Deb lead the way to the goods, then kicks the crap out of her and steals them. El Sapo, 1, Debra Morgan, 0, right? Wrong — Debra’s able to track down this hulky goatee of a man, despite getting locked in a storage unit, and puts three bullets through his car and him.
Dex pulls a few strings to cover for Deb so that she doesn’t get caught, which sets up an interesting web where Debra hates Dexter but now owes him immensely. As much as she says she wants to get away from him, she either actually can’t or won’t.
But it looks like the Morgan family now really has two killers in the family. And considering how Debra handled her first kill (cocaine — remember?), things are surely about to get ugly.
From the moment Ben (Rob Kazinsky) smoldered his way into Bon Temps earlier this season, Truebies have speculated a potential connection between Sookie’s fairy suitor and her ancient aggressor Warlow. The July 7 episode of True Bloodfinally proved those clever fans right — and the connection turned out to be a lot more direct than you might have imagined.
As it turns out, Ben is Warlow!
For once in her dopey fairy life, Sookie (Anna Paquin) was the one who put the pieces together after Jason (Ryan Kwanten) mysteriously recovered while under Ben’s care. And when Jason and Niall’s assassination attempt failed — bye, grandpa! — Sookie did what she does best: She took Ben to bed, trapping him between her sheets and her fairy ball.
Side note: I hope Warlow’s blood stays in Jason’s system for a while, because that little ‘shaving’ dream he had was the best thing we’ve seen since Sam’s (Sam Trammell) dream about showering with Bill (Stephen Moyer). This show knows its audience, that’s for sure.
Fairy Girls’ Night Out
Speaking of Bill, Bon Temps’ resident vamp-god co-hosted a little mixer with Jessica (Deborah Ann Woll), and Andy’s daughters were the guests of honor. They still don’t have names, but thanks to their latest growth spurt, they now have boobs — and an insatiable appetite for partying, apparently.
Of course, Bill’s idea of a ‘party’ involves draining blood, so the girls quickly assessed the lame-ness of the party. That’s when Jessica, in a poor attempt to keep the girls from escaping, ended up draining all of their blood and leaving them for dead on the living room floor.
Nice one, Jess.
Daddy’s Little Vampire
Meanwhile, Eric (Alexander Skarsgard) made his first vampire since Pam (Kristin Bauer Van Straten), and the lucky progeny was none other than the governor’s daughter, Willa!
It’s all part of Eric’s plan to get the governor to change his mind about vampires, but it all backfired when Willa returned home to her father — and he sent her to the camp! (Also, the governor is sleeping with Sarah Newlin? Gross.)
Odds & Ends
With each passing week, I feel like Pam and Tara (Rutina Wesley) become more and more believable as lesbians.
This season’s snoozy story line belongs to the werewolves. Like, what’s even going on with them? And does anyone care? Alcide (Joe Manganiello) stopped being interesting when he gave up on Sookie.
HollywoodLifers, were you surprised by the Ben/Warlow twist, or did you kind of see it coming? Drop a comment with your review of the episode and your predictions for the rest of the season!
Last season, Melissa was accused of being a stripper. This season, she’s being accused of cheating on husband Joe Gorga. And naturally, Kim D. is at the center of these new allegations.
Melissa Gorga hears there are rumors floating around that she cheated on her husband, Joe Gorga, with an ex-lover, on the July 7 episode of The Real Housewives of New Jersey. All the ladies can only think of one person who’s likely responsible for these new allegations — Teresa Giudice.
Melissa Gorga Cheating Scandal — Did She Cheat On Joe Gorga?
Caroline Manzo, Rosie Pierri and Jacqueline Laurita visit Kathy Wakile at her new commercial kitchen. Inside, Rosie tells them about how Teresa wants everyone to go on a retreat together. Jacqueline says she’ll have to think about it while Caroline has no interest in getting further involved in the ongoing Gorga/Giudice feud. (Isn’t it a bit late for that?)
Later, Teresa calls Kathy to personally invite her to the retreat. Teresa immediately blames Jacqueline for the problems she’s having with Joe (while on speakerphone). Within seconds, Jacqueline swipes the phone from Kathy’s hands and starts arguing with Teresa. There’s a lot of yelling, humming over each other and finally, Teresa dares Jacqueline to go on the retreat. (Let’s just say that if the retreat goes anything like this call, they won’t be resolving much.)
Just when Melissa thinks all the drama may soon be over (if the retreat proves to be successful), she’s blindsided by some damaging accusations. One of Melissa’s closest friends (likely former friend now), Jan, tells Teresa, Kim D. and JenniferDalton that Melissa cheated on Joe. Teresa is “shocked” to see Melissa’s friend turn on her and says she doesn’t want to be a part of the conversation. (Yet, she doesn’t leave, tell them to stop or defend Melissa.)
Jennifer Plays Both Sides
Jennifer, who was recently trying to sell Melissa and Joe’s house, takes Melissa out for lunch. During their outing, she confesses to Melissa that Jan is spreading hurtful rumors about her. It seems like Jennifer has some ulterior motives, though. Because she then meets up with Teresa and tells her that she told Melissa about Jan’s accusation. Teresa freaks because she thinks Melissa and Joe will think she’s involved. (Obviously, they do. At this point, who wouldn’t?)
While out to dinner together, Melissa tells her husband, Kathy, and Jacqueline about the accusations, but they aren’t shocked to hear Teresa is involved. Jacqueline asks aloud: How is it that Teresa is always around when other people are making accusations against Melissa?
To make matters worse, Kim. D happens to be at the same restaurant as them. Melissa confronts Kim D., but she doesn’t take any blame.
Jacqueline gets pretty worked up over this new development and Kathy thinks she should go on the retreat and try to resolve her issues with Teresa.
What did you think of tonight’s new episode, HollywoodLifers? Should Teresa be blamed for not sticking up for Melissa?
The secrets of Kate and William’s split and subsequent reunion have been revealed in a new book titled Kate by Michael O’Mara. Kate breaks down the royal couple’s 2007 breakup in extreme detail, describing that Kate and William had come to a serious crossroad after dating for four years:
When his father Charles was wooing Diana and the relationship reached a crossroads, Prince Philip told him that he needed to take action one way or another. And Charles proposed. When William was faced with a similar dilemma he went the other way.
Kate was devastated by the breakup, Michael writes, which was only made worse when William went to London nightclub, flirted with countless girls, and even stood on table at one point and screamed, “I’m free!”
But two can play that game: Kate documents how the Duchess started going out more, doing her own share of flirting after the breakup: “Her dresses grew shorter, her tops lower… Once inside a party she put on a pair of pink silk bunny ears and proceeded, as one partygoer put it, to 'tease all the boys.’”
Kate Middleton & Prince William’s Reunion & Baby Talk
But enough was enough. Apparently compelled by his father’s disappointment over having failed to marry his first love, Camilla immediately, William realized that he’d had what he wanted all along with Kate, and began trying to prove himself worthy of her.
After a lot of trying, Kate finally let William back in. “We were both finding ourselves and being different characters,” Prince William stated. “It was very much trying to find our own way and we were growing up so it was just a bit of space and it worked out for the better.”
Once back together nothing was going to split them up, and Kate recounts the days leading up to their engagement:
Kate and William had a lot to discuss, and some lost time to make up for. In September, they flew to the Seychelles in the Indian Ocean. At night they relaxed over a candlelit supper on the beach. It was during this break that they made an agreement with each other. For the next few years, they would work and enjoy their lives, knowing that at some point when the time was right, they would be husband and wife – and perhaps parents too.
You have to admit, that’s a pretty amazing, romantic story. We love the royal couple and they clearly made the right decision to get back together way back when — we’re so glad they did!
Does Taylor have his eye on a new hottie? A new report claims that the ‘Twilight’ star was spotted getting hot and heavy with a stunning brunette during a wild Independence Day soiree.
Sounds like there were more fireworks in New York City on the Fourth of July than just the ones over the Hudson River. Taylor Lautner, 21, was reportedly seen being very intimate with a sexy brunette on July 4. So who was she?
Taylor Lautner’s Fourth Of July Date: Hooking Up With ‘Tracers’ Co-Star?
The Twilight star’s Independence Day hookup reportedly looked a lot like Marie Avgeropoulos, an eyewitness told Page Six. Taylor and Marie are co-starring in the upcoming film, Tracers, but they looked like way more than just castmates at the swanky Hudson Terrace on July 4.
“He was very affectionate with his dark-haired young lady friend,” the onlooker said. “They were kissing, dancing and hugging in their private cabana area. They stayed the majority of the night, enjoying drinks and dancing till about 2 a.m.” Sounds like a romantic, steamy night!
Taylor Lautner: What Happened To Maika Monroe?
Is Taylor playing the field right now? Just a month ago on June 5 HollywoodLife.comreported exclusively that Taylor was out on another PDA-filled date with actress Maika Monroe. “They looked like they were having fun and flirting,” an eyewitness told us.
And on May 24, Taylor and Maika were spotted holding hands and being extra flirty at a Los Angeles Dodgers game. It had totally looked like these two were headed for a relationship, but Taylor’s reported night out with Marie certainly throws a wrench into that.
Perhaps Maika and Taylor agreed to take some time apart while he hangs out on the East Coast, and he decided to take full advantage of it!
What do you think, HollywoodLifers? Are you Team Marie or Team Maika for Taylor? Let us know!
This gives a whole new meaning to ‘I Knew You Were Trouble.’ The unlucky-in-love singer revealed in a new interview that she might actually enjoy having her heart broken. What is she talking about?
Taylor Swiftis no stranger to heartbreak, but does she actually enjoy it? The 23-year-old who’s had more splits than most actually had some good things to say about heartbreak in a new interview. Maybe that’s why she so readily hops into relationships with guys who aren’t relationship material?
Taylor Swift: Heartbreak Is Beautiful
“There’s something so beautiful about people who are heartbroken,” Taylor told E! Latin’s Coffee Break, ”they think about how they’re feeling much more.”
Relating that notion to music and songwriting, Taylor continued:
Love is one of those things that is so simple, you don’t need to think about it when it’s good, you only need to think about it when it’s bad, so when music is all that you have and you’re lonely or you’re missing someone and you write a song that says exactly how you feel, there is sort of a gratification you get from that, it almost helps you move on.
We will point out that this sounds like something only a heartbroken person would say — kind of like saying you hate winning after you just lost a bet — but it does also give some insight into Taylor’s love life. Is she addicted to heartbreak?
It would explain why she went after Harry Styles, who she knew was trouble when he walked in, and why she’s jumped into other relationships. She may subconsciously be setting herself up for heartbreak because she secretly likes how it makes her feel and think.
Taylor Swift: Does She Have A New Romantic Interest?
And as we say that, Taylor might be ready for new love. Though originally it appeared that Taylor spent the Fourth of July with only her dancers and tour members, there may have been one special guest who Tay Tay has her eyes on.
That’s cute actor Matthew Gray Gubler. Rumors have arisen that Matthew was a guest of honor at Taylor’s Rhode Island mansion after he tweeted, “next stop New England!” on July 3 and then posted a picture of himself with the same patriotic face paint as Taylor’s crew on July 4.
We just hope if Taylor is getting involved with Matthew, that he’s a standup guy who she isn’t chasing just to feel some more heartbreak. What do you think, HollywoodLifers? Let us know!
Love and basketball! After months of dating, the Oklahoma City star reportedly asked Monica to marry him. And she said yes!
Kevin Durant, 24, is going from winning MVP awards to starting his own family, as he reportedly asked his WNBA star girlfriend, Monica Wright for her hand in marriage on July 6.
Kevin Durant Gets Engaged To Monica Wright
Monica, also 24, showed off her new bling — a large circular diamond engagement ring — in a picture obtained by Media Takeout, confirming that she and Kevin got engaged.
Kevin reportedly popped the question on the night of July 6, Media Takeout reports.
Kevin Durant & Monica Wright Fall In Love
After being close friends since high school, linked by their successful basketball careers, the couple reportedly took things to the next level months ago. But romance has long been on Kevin’s mind: in 2011 he tweeted, “Or maybe I need a basketball playing girlfriend…hmm lol…monica wright where r u(love and basketball.”
And the feelings of love and admiration clearly go both ways. After Kevin donated $1 million to the tornado relief in Oklahoma, Monica gushed about her man: “He's got a heart of gold, and anytime (something like) this happens, he's the first one who wants to help,” Monica told FoxSportsNorth. “He's a really compassionate guy.”
This is such an adorable love story — from BFFs to an impending wedding. Kevin is clearly a genuine guy who must know what a catch he has in Monica — he didn’t waste any time before popping the question! And can we just say it — their future children are going to be insane basketball players.
Selena Gomez Goes To David Henrie’s Birthday Party
David’s big night on July 6 — though he actually doesn’t turn 24 until July 11 — was documented by The Amazing Spider-Man actress, Hannah Marks, who posted a few photos of the celebration to Instagram.
But the most noteworthy photo is the one featuring Selena. The 20-year-old singer is looking like a gorgeous hipster (those glasses!) and sitting with a group of friends, clearly having a good time at the party. “I don’t know what’s happening here,” Hannah humorously wrote along with the pic.
It appears that the crew features a few other acting stars – Francia Raisa from The Secret Life of the American Teenager, Cassi Thomson from Switched At Birth, and Brandon Mychal Smith from So Random!, among others– and Selena looks adorable making her iconic kissy face.
But the shocking reunion unfortunately couldn’t last too long — Justin was back on the road on July 6, heading to Omaha, Neb. for a stop on his “Believe” tour. In fact, he’s pretty booked up with tour dates until a short three-day break, which coincidentally (or not) falls on Selena’s birthday on July 22!
But for now Selena seems to have found the perfect way to get her mind off of the high emotions of reuniting with Justin — and possibly now missing him — by just having a relaxing, fun night in honor of one of her best friends, David.
How terrible! After Charles Saatchi publicly assaulted his celebrity chef wife of 10 years in June, the art tycoon announced he was filing for divorce on July 7, but you won’t believe his reasons why.
Nigella Lawson, the 53-year-old celebrity chef is splitting from her art collector husband, Charles Saatchi, 70. In an official statement, Charles explained why he decided to file for divorce, and it turns out that the breakup is directly related to the couple’s very public physical confrontation that happened on June 9.
Nigella Lawson’s Husband Files For Divorce
Charles stated that he is upset Nigella didn’t come to his defense after photos were taken of him grasping her throat violently and then pinching her nose while she bawled uncontrollably. He told Mail Online:
I am sorry to announce that Nigella Lawson and I are getting divorced. I feel that I have clearly been a disappointment to Nigella during the last year or so, and I am disappointed that she was advised to make no public comment to explain that I abhor violence of any kind against women, and have never abused her physically in any way.
The statement continues:
This is heartbreaking for both of us as our love was very deep, but in the last year we have become estranged and drifted apart. The row photographed at Scott’s restaurant could equally have been Nigella grasping my neck to hold my attention — as indeed she has done in the past.
We understand that couples break up and drift apart, but to put any of the guilt from Charles’ abusive behavior on Nigella just seems ridiculous. And while Charles states that their roles have been switched before — an astonishing claim — the bottom line is that he was the one publicly choking his wife.
Charles Saatchi Defends Violent Incident With Nigella Lawson
When pictures of the violent argument went public, Charles attempted to explain the fight to the Evening Standard on June 17, saying, “About a week ago, we were sitting outside a restaurant having an intense debate about the children, and I held Nigella’s neck repeatedly while attempting to emphasize my point. There was no grip, it was a playful tiff.”
He continued, “The pictures are horrific but give a far more drastic and violent impression of what took place … Nigella’s tears were because we both hate arguing, not because she had been hurt.”
Clearly Nigella and Charles have differences that cannot be reconciled, but we really hope he sees his own fault in that incident.
The couple were married in 2003; they do not have any children together, though they both have children from previous marriages.
What do you think about Charles’ statement, HollywoodLifers? Let us know!
