Did we ask?

The seamy revelations just keep coming. Mama June, the reality-star matriarch of the recently canceled "Here Comes Honey Boo Boo," revealed in an "Entertainment Tonight" interview that she lost her virginity at 12. "I had no idea what it was, how to whatever," Page Six quotes the 35-year-old as saying. "Then it kind of escalated from there." Mama June, aka June Shannon, says she was dating men while in junior-high school who were 10-20 years older than her, though she always told her mother they were younger. No surprise, perhaps, Mama June gave birth to her first child, Anna Marie "Chickadee" Cardwell, when just 14.

Kim comes clean

It was really all about battling her insecurity — and really, what better reason could there be to pose butt-naked in a national magazine? Famous-for-being-famous Kim Kardashian, 35, told "The Project" on Australian TV that she decided to drop what little modesty she still had left to "make myself feel confident," according to Still, at least one earthshaking question got answered in the interview. Kardashian insists she really did balance that glass of champagne on her derriere — no Photoshop involved. "My back hurt for about a week after that shoot ... I used muscles!" she said.

We love N.Y.

They might not have realized it, but beleaguered subway riders in New York's West 4th Street station were treated to a bit of pop-rock royalty Sunday night, when Nick Jonas, 22 — formerly of the Jonas Brothers and more recently of Nick Jonas & The Administration — staged an impromptu performance with a friend on the platform to record a few acoustic videos. Page Six quotes an unnamed source who said the singer just wanted to "take advantage of the great subway acoustics." Unlike Jonas' recent appearances in Flaunt and Details magazines, however, his famously chiseled abs were not on public display.

Lisa Vanderpump gets hit with a $1.5 M bill

"Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" star Lisa Vanderpump, 54, and husband Ken Todd, 57, have been hit with a $1.5 million bill for legal fees, following a former employee's successful sexual-harassment suit against the Villa Blanca restaurant in Los Angeles, which the two own. Former server Katrina Bustillos was awarded $6,250 in compensatory damages plus an additional $100,000 by a jury in June for harassment by a manager. London's Daily Mail reports that Vanderpump and Todd's attorney has called the legal bills "excessive," but Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Michael Linfield disagreed, and ordered the judgment. Ouch.
