Good to see NBC being an equal opportunist by adding 2 of the most liked housewives, along with 2 of the most hated in the form of 40 year old mean girl Tamra Barney, and alleged former coke whore Danielle Staub.
We announced a few days ago that VH1′s top dating reality show, For The Love of Ray J would be returning for a second season. The reason given was allegedly due to the fact that the relationship between Ray J and Cocktail did not work out. Well we pretty much called this a lie, due to the fact that the relationship never had a chance.
Ray J had signed up for a 2nd season while the 1st season was still airing on VH1, thus never giving his relationship with Cocktail a chance to develop. Cocktail released a statement to Bossip pretty much echoing the same thing. It’s very obvious that she has some resentment towards Ray J in this statement.
An excerpt from the statement is below -
“Just like any other relationship we took it day by day. We would hang out, have fun, laugh, share stories, and watch TV. Over time as we got to know each other more and more he would tell me things and often times they would hurt my feelings. I guess the brutal truth about him not being exclusive with me and still ‘hooking up’ with girls made me realize that it wasn’t going to work. I hate feeling like I failed and let’s be real no woman likes to quit a relationship so I tried to stick it out. I wanted to be his only one not just his number one.
After awhile Ray eventually realized that I was truly genuine and sat me down to tell me that we were not going to work
out. Then the Season 2 bomb was dropped on me. What makes me mad is that I asked him if there was going to be a season 2 and he lied to my face. He sweet talked me both times I asked. Aside from that, the breaking point was when we went on tour. He didn’t come back to the room at night and I heard the whispers about him being in other rooms with girls. It made me mad because he knew he could be honest with me but he chose not to be. At this point, I emotionally checked out.”
During the last episode of The Real Housewives of New Jersey, Teresa Giudice was the center of attention. The mom of three who is expecting her 4th child in September decided to undergo a breast augmentation on the show after talking about her “bubbie” issues all season. Above is a picture of a very pregnant Teresa with her new boobies.
In a recent interview, a cheerful Giudice explained why she got plastic surgery, and her issues with costar Danielle Staub.
Below are excerpts from the interview-
Why did you want to have the surgery?
Did you see the shot with the leopard bathing suit? Does that answer your question? I was confident before. The only problem I had was in bathing suits. I always had to get them padded. I liked [my breasts] being little, but after I breastfed [my three daughters], they completely went away. It’s not like I wanted big boobs or anything. I wanted to be a little bit fuller. I just did it for myself.
On last week’s show you had some strong opinions about Danielle’s past. How did you find out about the book and what were your concerns?
Dina and Caroline were the ones who let me know — and I was so freaked out about it. Like so freaked out because I have little ones. Mostly, I was freaking out because of the kidnapping [allegations]. I was like, “Who is this girl? She’s been around my kids.” I swear I was so freaked out. I didn’t even want to talk to her after that.
When you got the call from Steve saying he was bringing another woman to your house did you ever think of telling Danielle?
I wasn’t going to tell her because I wasn’t going to get involved. Steve was my husband’s friend. Not that I feel loyal to him or anything. I’d just rather stay out of it. Danielle’s a big girl; she can handle herself. But just one comment I’ve got to make: Getting involved with a 26-year-old and she’s 47, I mean, I think says it all.
Are you happy with how you’ve been portrayed on the show?
There’s little things here and there which, of course, I have no control over.
Care to be more specific?
About the [scene where I spent lots of] cash. That was just a small deposit. That was not $120,000 [in cash]. I don’t want people thinking I have that kind of cash. That’s ridiculous and that’s not safe anyway. And of course with the whole stage mom thing. But over time, I think people will see that it’s what Gia wants to do, and I’m just being the supportive mom. I think [Real Housewives of New York City star] Bethenny [Frankel] wrote I was living [vicariously] through Gia. I’m so not doing that — and Bethenny, mind your business. Stay on this side of the bridge!
Surprise, surprise! VH1 has now officially announced there will be a 2nd season of For the Love of Ray. This comes has no surprise as the first season was a big hit for VH1.
The sad part about this is that Cocktail, the winner of the first season, never stood a chance. A source close toRay J informed us months ago that a deal had been struck for a second season. The deal for the 2nd season was struck while the first season was still airing on VH1. I highly doubt Cocktail knew about this.
While I’m happy we get a second season of this show, I do find it quite sad that the people involved with these shows, Ray J included, have no problem playing with people’s emotions.
More information on the 2nd season and casting is below -
“4.2 million viewers tuned in to see Ray J pick his leading lady on the For the Love of Ray J finale episode. Cocktail was crowned the winner and all seemed great for the happy couple. We next saw them on the reunion episode where both let viewers know they were excited to see how their relationship would progress! Ray J thought he had found “the one” but unfortunately, things didn’t work out – and he’s now single again.
As viewers saw last season, dating a hip-hip star is a full-time job which includes red carpet events, the paparazzi and handling all the crazy fans. For Ray J, dating has never been an issue – it’s finding the perfect woman that can be harder than you think… especially when you’re a celebrity. Since things didn’t exactly work out with his last girlfriend, Ray J is back to give love a second chance. As R&B’s most eligible bachelor, Ray J is determined to find a woman he can settle down with.
VH1 is looking for women with confidence, personality and class that can handle the pressure of being with a superstar and turn Ray J into a one-woman man. Beginning today, viewers and fans will have the opportunity to submit themselves for consideration on For the Love of Ray J 2. Online users can log onto VH1’s For the Love of Ray J 2 casting site at www.rayjcasting.com.”
Below is the full article with the part about Danielle highlighted. Special thanks to our reader Marie for sending this to us.
“A man held for $25,000 ransom in June was arrested Thursday on federal narcotics charges involving one of his alleged abductors, the FBI said.
Carmen Christopher Centolella, 27, of Hobe Sound, surrendered without incident Jupiter based on a two-count indictment returned Aug. 28 by a federal grand jury in Miami.
One of Centolella’s alleged captors, Daniel Claudio Aguilar, 23, of 3132 NW 74th St., was also charged in the same indictment. Aguilar is being held in the Metropolitan Correctional Center in Southwest Dade while he awaits trial on an extortion charge stemming from Centolella’s alleged abduction.
Aguilar and Centolella were charged with conspiracy to possess and possession with intent to distribute cocaine.
“The indictment alleges he was involved with Aguilar prior to the kidnapping,” said FBI spokesman Paul Miller.
Centolella was rescued by a SWAT team on June 23 after authorities said he was abducted two days earlier in an apparent dispute over a debt he owed Aguilar and two others holding him.
The two other people allegedly involved in the ransom attempt were Rogers Jones Jr., 22, of 2325 NW 59th St. and Beverly Ann Merrill, 23, 2629 S. Bayshore Dr.
All three were charged with extortion for making interstate ransom calls to Centolella’s father in Utica, N.Y. Thomas Centolella, retired manager of a Utica shoe store, reported the crime.
It was not clear at the time if the transaction was narcotics-related, but the FBI found explosives, 10 kilos of cocaine and scales in the kitchen at 8265 SW 45th St., where Centolella had been held. The house was rented by Aguilar.
Centolella was questioned and released following the June incident.”
In very shocking news, AI’s Adam Lambert has confirmed what the world already knew, that he is indeed gay. Adam appears on the cover of the latest issue of Rolling Stone magazine.
“I don’t think it should be a surprise for anyone to hear that I’m gay,” says the American Idol runner-up.
Adam continues, “I’m proud of my sexuality. I embrace it. It’s just another part of me.” Adam however is wary of becoming the poster boy for gay civil rights, “I’m trying to be a singer, not a civil rights leader.”
Adam also says he didn’t want to “come out” on American Idol, but rather wanted to do it on his own terms. “I was worried that [coming out] would be so sensationalized that it would overshadow what I was there to do, which was sing,” Lambert tells the mag. “I’m an entertainer, and who I am and what I do in my personal life is a separate thing. it shouldn’t matter. Except it does. It’s really confusing.”
In other news, Adam also signed a record deal with RCA Records. His record is set to be released this fall. We reported yesterday that AI winner, Kris Allen has also signed his record deal.
First the duo, Heidi and Spencer Pratt tried to quit a couple of times before they finally quit, only to return. They were placed in the “Lost Chamber” for 14 hours. (She and Spencer were sentenced to the spider-filled room while the cast voted if they could remain on the show after quitting last week.)
According to their rep, several false and inaccurate reports were circulating that the duo were tortured. Heidi Pratt’s rep confirms to Usmagazine exclusively that she wasn’t tortured on the set of I’m a Celebrity…Get Me Out of Here!.
Following the Pratts getting out of the lost chamber, Heidi was rushed to the hospital Saturday night.
TMZ reported Heidi was being treated for a gastric ulcer, while Spencer’s sister, Stephanie, seems to blame NBC. She posted on Twitter: “I’m really saddened to hear that NBC felt it was ok to punish speidi so harshly and torture them as if they were criminals — that Heidi was…rushed to the hospital and has an IV in her arm after being locked in a dark room for 3 days w no food or water. Pls pray she will be ok.”
“She has been released from the hospital and is doing well,” the rep goes on. “The couple remains in Costa Rica. In addition, it was reported the Pratts have fired their legal counsel. This is inaccurate.”
