Taylor Armstrong — Russell and I Were Knee-Deep in Therapy

Filed under: Taylor Armstrong, Russell Armstrong, Real Housewives

090611_real_housewives_videoTaylor Armstrong confessed on the season premiere of “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” … that she and Russell Armstrong were engaged in intense couples therapy before his suicide last month.

During a dinner convo about the therapy sessions Taylor blurts out, “We’re knee-deep into so much psycho-therapy that I’m sick of myself.”

Things got really heated when Lisa Vanderpump‘s husband said, “If I had to go to see a therapist to make my marriage better, I would feel weak.”

So, we gotta ask …

Prior to the episode, Bravo aired a 4 minute segment where the entire cast — minus Taylor — talked about how Russell’s death has affected them.

80-year-old Regis made the announcement this morning — but there’s still a HUGE mystery … no one knows who his replacement will be.

There are a handful of fill-in hosts who are rumored to have a shot at the gig — including “Dancing with the Stars” alum Psycho Mike, “Survivor” host Jeff Probst and Howie Mandel.

Soulja Boy APOLOGIZES to U.S. Military — ‘I Am Deeply Sorry’

Soulja Boy
says he “let my words get the best of me” when he released a new rap video saying, “F**k the troops” … and now he’s issued a full apology to the entire U.S. military.

Soulja Boy just posted a new blog on GlobalGrind.com … titled, “I Am Deeply Sorry To All Members Of The United States Military Services And Their Families.”

In the post, Soulja writes, “As an artist, I let my words get the best of me. Sometimes there are
things that we feel, things that we want to express, and when we put
them on paper and speak them out loud, they can come out wrong.”

“When I
expressed my frustration with the US Army, not only did my words come
out wrong, I was wrong to even speak them.”

He adds, “So, I write this to give my sincerest apology to all members of the
United States military services, as well as their families that were
offended by my most recent lyrics.”

As TMZ first reported, several military vets lashed out against Soulja Boy after he released the rap … with the lyrics, “F**k the FBI and the army troops … fighting for what? Be your own man …”

Check out Soulja’s entire apology letter after the jump ….

As an artist, I let my words get the best of me. Sometimes there are
things that we feel, things that we want to express, and when we put
them on paper and speak them out loud, they can come out wrong.

When I
expressed my frustration with the US Army, not only did my words come
out wrong, I was wrong to even speak them. So, I write this to give my
sincerest apology to all members of the United States military services,
as well as their families that were offended by my most recent lyrics.


As a young man who grew up in the post-9/11 era, I have watched our
country fight two wars that seem like they are never going to end.

I
have seen thousands and thousands of our brave men and women get killed
in battle and often times, I think for what? A lot of people in this
country are struggling to make ends meet and I think a lot about what if
we had never gone to war.

Where would our economy be? Our schools, our
after-school and work programs, our streets? I mean, damn, 48 people got
shot in New York City just this past weekend … in 3 days … I’m not
saying that it is just because of a bad economy, but at a certain point
we have to take care of our own people.


In no way would I ever want to offend those who are protecting our
freedoms … a lot of homeboys who I grew up with, a lot of people who
come from the neighborhoods we live in … In no way do I want to hurt
any of our honorable soldiers who put their lives at risk, regardless of
how they feel about the two wars we fight in.

I am just frustrated that
we haven’t been able to bring you all home quick enough and my
frustration got the best of me. I am deeply sorry.

Chromeo — We’re LIVING PROOF Jews and Arabs Can Get Along

Filed under: Chromeo, Music, Exclusive

Jews and Arabs can make beautiful music together … especially ELECTROFUNK — and the proof is the band Chromeo.

The guys from the super-successful group — David Macklovitch (Jewish) and Patrick Gemayel (born in Lebanon) — were out in NY this weekend, where we asked if things ever get awkward between the two of ’em … ya know, because of that whole Middle East situation.

The guys told us, “We were best friends since we were kids man — it’s never awkward, it should never be awkward.”

Amen to that.

Gloria Allred and a famed lesbian rights activist will hold a news conference Monday to protest people who are urging children not to watch Chaz Bono on “Dancing with the Stars.”

We’re told there will be dance and viewing parties across the country with transgender individuals and their supporters on September 19 — the night of Chaz’s debut — and Gloria will dance with every transgender person who wants to dance with her — but only at the L.A. party.

The news conference will be held at Gloria’s office at 10:30 AM PT.  Of course, we’ll nutbush (a form of line dancing) right over there.
