Last time on Teen Mom 2, Leah Messer and Jeremy Calvert made their relationship official. Kailyn Lowry dumped Jordan in favor of getting back togeher with Jo Rivera, while Chelsea Houska agreed to give therapy a try in order to (finally!) get over Adam Lind. Finally, Jenelle Evans managed to avoid jail time after failing a drug test and met a new guy, Josh.
For reasons unknown, MTV decided to air Teen Mom 2 on Christmas Eve and began with Chelsea. Said in my best whiny Chelsea voice… uh-ugh…. Chelsea brings her orange skin, raccoon eyes, bleached-to-death hair, and frosty lips to the nail salon. Luckily, Chelsea and mom Mary have both removed their hair feathers, so there's room in the car for Aubree. Thank goodness for small favors. For a while there, I expected to see the hair feathers listed in the opening credits.
I'm elated Aubree comes to the nail salon. She is adorable and makes Chelsea's scenes bearable. I digress. While Chelsea, Mary, and Aubree get manicures, Chelsea announces that she's dropping out of therapy. She doesn't think she needs to go because the therapist didn't tell her anything she doesn't already know. Chelsea is all like, Everything she told me about boundaries and healthy and unhealthy relationships, I've already heard from every other person in my life. Basically, Chelsea doesn't want one more person – a person with a "dishing out advice" degree to boot – telling her that Ad-dumm is no good for her.
I'm sorry to be the bearer of bad news – and please don't blame the messenger – but if you were dying to have something in common with Evelyn Lozada (and thousands of other women) and see Chad Johnson naked, you've lost your chance!
Days after a verified Chad sex tape started circling round the net, the Basketball Wives star contacted the FBI to open a fornication file about its illegal distribution, which he claims was hacked from his cell phone. And who keeps sex tapes on their phone I wonder? Kris Jenner? Kim K?
Want to see what Mike Shouhed has to offer underneath his clothes? Playgirl apparently does! The male centerfold site is offering to feature the handsome (and smarmy) Shahs of Sunset star stripped down. Something tells me Reza Farahan is going to be a jellybean and start feuding with Mike now!
Apparently it was Mike who set the wheels in motion. In a recent interview with GossipDavid, Mike confessed that he'd definitely take it all off. "I am hot as hell! If the opportunity and the money was right, I’d definitely consider Playgirl." He's so humble, isn't he…
Phaedra shared the baby news with People that she and husband Apollo Nida are going to be parents again. Phaedra is expecting baby #2 sometime early next year. And judging by the photo she shared of her growing baby bump, it's going to be EARLY 2013!
Phaedra and Apollo are already parents to "Prince" Ayden Adonis Nida, 2. Congrats to Phaedra and Apollo! Lavish birthday parties live on!
Last night on the Real Housewives of Miami reunion some serious grievances were aired. I mean grievances I didn't even know existed! Somewhere like a shot in the dark Ana Quincoces developed a case of the haters for Lea Black. Did I miss something here? Supposedly the tift originated from a blog Lea did snarking on Ana's kids. Whatever spurned this, it got nasty – not nasty nice – just straight up nasty. To me it reeked of eau de desperate to salvage a S3 contract!
Something about Ana speaking over people, speaking constantly forMarysol Patton, and suddenly developing a sneering distaste for everyone last night just didn't resonate well with me. I mean who died and made her Andy Cohen moderator of this reunion? Not Andy! I mean maybe she was over the BS all these women spout, but listen lady YOU signed up for reality TV and this is what RH of anywhere is. If you can't take the heat, maybe stop quooking.
There's telling the truth and then there's being an ass. And what was that folder Ana was waving around that was swiftly snatched away in the editing portion of the show? Rumors speculate it was "proof" that Lea was up to some salacious behaviors prior to becoming the illustrious Mrs. Black. Other rumors speculate it exposed details of the Black's financials, including those pertaining to the The Black Gala that could discredit the event.
What could have possibly gone wrong (again) in such a short amount of time? A source close to the Bachelorette star says that Emily feels as if Jef is more interested in fame than her, adding, "Emily put her whole heart into this relationship and is shocked at how much Jef has changed."
"Jef was supposed to come for Christmas, but Emily canceled the plans. She's done with him," the source says. "She wants nothing to do with him anymore. He's tried calling, but she hasn't answered. She was so in love with him, and he crushed her."
Even though it's my job to blog on reality shows, and while I love every housewives franchise for different reasons, I have a hard time following the rumors swirling around the upcoming season of Real Housewives of New Jersey…mainly because it's exhausting. One minute Jacqueline Laurita is bowing out, the next minute most of the cast is being replaced by people who will actually film with Teresa Giudice. Add in the off-again-on-again family relationships and friendships, and my head is spinning!
However, this new gossip is beyond awesome. Two words: Lil' Kim. I'll get back to that later, but it's hilariously amazing. According to sources in the Garden State, all of the women will be returning for another round. Yes, that means we'll all be getting our fill of Jacq, Teresa, Melissa Gorga, Caroline Manzo, and Kathy Wakile. Not only will all of the ladies be back for more, we'll be treated to some additional familiar faces as well as some newcomers. Count on some Kims, that's for sure!
