More bad news for Kelly Bensimon. A socialite gets engaged, and an actress turns 30. Plus the requisite Jennifer Aniston sadness news and word of Madonna's continued disgraces.
- Oh no. Kelly Bensimon, the much-beleaguered Real Housewives star, is in trouble again. This time it's not for twinkicide or Nay, Saks! syndrome. No, a former Elle Accessories colleague named Celeste Greenberg is claiming that Bensimon stole her owl pendant idea. The two were supposed to share in the profits for the ugly necklace, but instead Bensimon ran away with the idea and that was that. Bensimon's people claim that Kelly was just being nice to ugly old Celeste by even talking to her or giving her a job. So who's to say. One thing's for sure though. I'll bet Kelly wishes she'd never picked up that phone call from Bravo producers. [GoaG, via P6]

Fitting. Whiskey-filled ballads about long lost love and beans. Weeping and farting: Jen's M.O. [NYDN]
- Only a two days after a terrified horse bucked her off its back, the Madonna-witch moves forward with another baby snatching operation. Her adoption appeal in Malawi will be on May 4th.
