Lisa Rinna: I Was in Talks for Beverly Hills Housewives

Denise Richards isn’t the only famous face clamoring for a spot on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.

Lisa Rinna confirmed to UsMagazine.com that she was considering joining the Bravo crew before she and actor hubby Harry Hamlin, 59, landed their TV Land reality series, Harry Loves Lisa.

“We were in discussions originally,” the actress, 47, told Us of the Bravo hit at the Nomad Two Worlds Opening Gala Tuesday. “I was up for it, and at the time I did my show instead of Beverly Hills. It was part of the process, but then my show came along so I ended up doing our show.”

It’s a choice Rinna doesn’t seem to regret. When asked if she would want to be on an upcoming season, she laughed, “I’m good.”

And though her show with Hamlin is over as well, their relationship is still red hot.

“It’s chemistry,” she told Us of their successful romance. “You either have it or you don’t. You have to get away. You’ve gotta go to a hotel, and you’ve got to get away. It’s the secret, you have to.”

Olivia Munn Has Had Secret Famous Boyfriends!

Olivia Munn Has Had Secret Famous Boyfriends!

Thursday February 24, 2011

Olivia MunnOLIVIA Munn has secretly romanced a string of famous boyfriends.

The 30-year-old actress — who has recently been romantically linked with Glee star Matthew Morrison – insists she is able to keep her private life under the radar because she would rather go on dates to unpopular places, rather than frequent establishments known to be visited by celebrities.

“Over the last year, I’ve dated guys that, if people knew, would be on the cover of magazines,” she said. “But they don’t find out because I say, ‘Hey, would you like to go to Valencia?’

“Some people go to restaurants that are so popular. They say it’s really good food. You’re like, ‘What food is worth that?’ The lobster ceviche will be just as good in a to-go box.”

Olivia insists she will always be open and honest with people when they ask her questions, but she admits the reason she does so is in order to maintain her privacy in other areas.

“I feel like I’ve been given a lot and I try to say thank you. The only thing I ask of myself is to try to keep my personal life personal,” she said.

“I will take as many pictures as you want, I will try to answer every single question under the sun, and the reason I’m doing that is so you’ll realize that I just have to keep something for myself.”

Boston Celtics get Oklahoma City Thunder’s Jeff Green, Nenad Krstic in deal for Kendrick Perkins, Nate Robinson

Celts Get Jeff Green

Celts Get Jeff Green

Just before Thursday’s 3 p.m. ET trade deadline, the Boston Celtics agreed to ship center Kendrick Perkins and guard Nate Robinson to the Oklahoma City Thunder for forward Jeff Green and big man Nenad Krstic in a deal the NBA approved about five hours later.

Neither team was done, though.

The Celtics also traded rookie center Semih Erden and forward Luke Harangody to the Cleveland Cavaliers for a 2013 second-round draft pick. The Cavaliers waived veteran forward Leon Powe to make roster room after also trading away Mo Williams and Jamario Moon for the Clippers’ Baron Davis in a separate move.

While the Celtics were unloading big men, the Thunder acquired another one, sending Morris Peterson and D.J. White to Charlotte for center Nazr Mohammed, sources told ESPN The Magazine’s Ric Bucher.

Celtics director of basketball operations Danny Ainge said Wednesday that Perkins is out at least a week after spraining the medial collateral ligament in his left knee. He missed 43 games this season recovering from right knee surgery.


Robinson tweeted reaction to the deal: “All I can say is wowzers — Will miss all my Boston fans I love y’all, u guys showed me love.”

It’s a homecoming of sorts for Green. He was selected by the Celtics in the first round (fifth overall) in the 2007 draft. But he was traded with Wally Szczerbiak and Delonte West to the then Seattle SuperSonics for Ray Allen and Glen Davis.

The Celtics’ pursuit of a slashing-type player intensified when it became apparent that Marquis Daniels might miss the rest of the season with a spinal injury. Daniels himself will be rehabbing in Sacramento. The Celtics traded him and cash considerations to the Kings on Thursday for a protected second-round pick in the 2017 draft, Kings president of basketball operations Geoff Petrie announced.

Daniels appeared in 49 games for the Celtics this season. He is averaging 5.5 points and 2.3 rebounds. He has been out since bruising his spinal cord on Feb. 6 against Orlando.

Green is averaging 15.2 points and 5.6 rebounds this season as the third option for the Thunder behind Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook. In his three-year career, he has averaged 14.2 points and 5.8 rebounds per game.

On his Twitter account, Durant said: “Tough day for me and my teammates … good luck to jeff green, nenad krstic.”

The deal gives the Thunder the big man that they’ve been looking for all season. Perkins has played in just 12 games this season, but the Thunder have felt for a while that they need a veteran big man to truly compete with the Spurs, Mavs and Lakers in the West.

The deal also gives the Thunder something for Green, who becomes a restricted free agent this summer. Green had rejected a contract extension offer from the Thunder earlier this season.

For the Celtics, they take a big risk that their big men — who are now Shaquille O’Neal, Kevin Garnett and Krstic — can lead them. But with Jermaine O’Neal out until April after knee surgery and Shaquille O’Neal currently out with an Achilles injury, these are interesting trades for a Celtics team trying to win a championship. Krstic is an offensive talent down low, but isn’t known as a rebounder or a tough defender. He is averaging 7.6 points and 4.4 rebounds per game.

Green is a young talent who can play both the 3 and the 4 and could be part of a longer rebuilding strategy.

Erden and Harangody are both rookies and were moved, in part, for the
Celtics to open roster spots. The Celtics may be making room to sign potential free agents who may be bought out of their contracts, league sources told ESPN.com’s Brian Windhorst.

Erden is averaging 4.1 points and 2.9 rebounds in 37 games and has been bothered by several injuries. He is planning to have shoulder surgery to repair a partially torn labrum in the offseason. Harangody has averaged 2.3 points and 2 rebounds in 28 games.

The draft pick going to Boston is the Timberwolves’ 2013 second-round pick that the Cavs acquired last summer as a part of a trade for Ramon Sessions and Ryan Hollins.

Robinson is averaging 7.1 points in 17.9 minutes per game this season.

Mike Bibby and Team Dime – Washington Post

For the second time in less than a year, the Wizards have acquired a point guard whose longtime number is not available. John Wall, you’ll recall, had to bail on No. 11 because of Elvin Hayes. Now Mike Bibby can’t have No. 10 because of Earl Monroe, whose jersey was retired in 2007.

For Bibby, this is no small thing. Here’s quoting an ESPN the Mag story from 2002:

They call themselves Team Dime, this crew of Bibby’s buds, who’ve been punctuating what’s otherwise a big, extended family’s dinner with lurid tales drawn, apparently, from their personal head-cracking history….

[His half-brother- Dane came up with the team’s name when Mike and his crew first walked into a Vancouver practice. “Hey, it’s Team Bibby,” said then-Grizzlies forward Shareef Abdur-Rahim. “Nah, this is Team Dime,” countered Flores. The name stuck. Flores even owns the copyright. “Ten is perfection,” he explains. “Dime” is slang both for an assist and a beautiful woman. And Bibby, who knows his way around both — have you seen Watkins? — has always worn Number 10.

And yeah, that — via HoopsVibe — is a TEAM DIME tattoo on Bibby’s back. So wearing No. 10 is obviously a big thing for him.

Anyhow, Wizards PR first Tweeted that Bibby would wear No. 0 for the Wizards, which was kind of shocking. But then they corrected themselves, and went with No. 00.

Anyhow, the Wizards first tweeted that Bibby would wear No. 0 for the Wizards, but the guard then changed his mind and went with No. 00. Many apologies for all the Kevin Duckworth fans out there.
