2010 American Idol Top 12 Girls

The top 12 ladies of American Idol performed live for the first time last night, and according to the critical judges, they mostly left a lot to be desired.

The show started with a noticeable change in the line-up of the judges, with Ellen DeGeneres now sitting furthest away from Simon Cowell. Ellen, in Ellen fashion, jokingly explained that she had to move away from Simon because he kept putting the moves on her.

When asked about the talent pool of the ladies by show host Ryan Seacrest, Simon responded, “Some are good. Some are not.” Interesting foreshadowing.

First up was Paige Miles who kicked off the competition with the Free classic “All Right Now.” She sounded just okay to me, and didn’t seem to have much of a stage presence, but she ended up receiving good praises from the judges.

Next up was Ashley Rodriguez who sang Leona Lewis’s “Happy,” and ended up getting trashed by the judges. Ashley likely received the worst criticism of the night, in a performance that didn’t seem that bad to me.

My favorite of the bunch, Didi Benami performed Ingrid Michaelson’s “The Way I Am,” which I believed was a perfect fit for her singing style. However the judges disagreed and said her performance was missing a spark.

One contestant who did seem to win over some of the judges was my second favorite, Crystal Bowersox, who sang a soulful rendition of Alanis Morissette’s “Hand in My Pocket.” “You were good tonight. I think you have greatness in you, though,” said Kara.

Last night’s episode reminded me of why I tend to stop watching Idol after the audition rounds. I can’t help but feel like the judges are somewhat too critical and go out of their way to find flaws in sometimes amazing performances. But then again, I’m no music expert but I find some of the critiques to be a bit ridic.

The top 12 boys will perform tonight, with the results show airing Thursday night.

First Tamra Barney admitted to dating and sleeping with her husband’s friend, Eddie Judge, only to turn around and lie about deny it just days later.

It now seems the Real Housewives of Orange County star is ready to go public with her new relationship. According to RadarOnline, Tamra herself posted the above photo of she and Eddie on her facebook page. This is all just less than 2 months after her husband Simon Barney filed for divorce, accusing her of cheating on him. Tamra has always denied she cheated.

Simon also claimed he found out about the romance by catching the two of them together at the Hard Rock Hotel in Las Vegas. He said, “I couldn’t believe what I had just witnessed — the ultimate betrayal by a pal and my estranged wife.”

“We started hanging out together more after my separation and one thing led to another. We had been friends for over a year,” said Tamra when she confirmed the new relationship to Radar.

She continued, “We are romantically involved, he is a great guy. It was bound to happen that we both would start dating again after he filed for divorce, it was going to happen sooner or later.”

This is all very messy interesting indeed.

bachelor-rozlyn-chris

The Bachelor’s Women Tell All episode aired last night and it seemed to be a he said-she said match between the show’s host – Chris Harrison and ousted contestant Rozlyn Papa.

Rozlyn, 29, during her interview segment with Chris, continued to deny having a physical relationship with the fired producer, Ryan Callahan. However, her fellow bachelorettes wasted no time throwing her under the bus, by revealing that they did see Rozlyn being inappropriate with Callahan.

Jessie said she saw Rozlyn and Callahan making out; another contestant said she saw her touch his thigh one time and Ella said she heard Rozlyn remark that she wanted Callahan to come put her to bed.

Despite the three eye witness accounts, Rozlyn swore on her child’s life that nothing physical happened between she and the producer. Interestingly enough, Jessie also swore on her dog’s life that she did witness a kiss between the two.  One can only hope Rozlyn’s son and Jessie’s dog are doing okay.

Chris proceeded to then tell Rozlyn how sad he was that Callahan was fired because many people on the show considered him a friend. Rozlyn then snapped, “That’s news to him, especially when you were hitting on his wife in New Zealand. He thought that was crazy.”  Chris replied cooly, “I won’t dignify that with a response.  I hope you will become a better person through this.”

Chris tells Entertainment Weekly that the reason he didn’t respond to Rozlyn’s accusation was because “that’s exactly what she would have wanted from me. It was a desperate attempt by a very desperate woman to create a diversion and deflect the spotlight from herself….”

No announcement was made about the next Bachelorette, but as we have reported, Ali Fedotowsky has been chosen to do the show.

Survivor Stephenie LaGrossaSurvivor James Clement

Survivor’s second all star game is well under way, with Stephenie LaGrossa being the second woman eliminated for the second week in a row.

The 30-year-old Philadelphia restaurant owner gave a new interview to PEOPLE magazine, during which she discussed her recent elimination and her upcoming wedding plans to Phillies pitcher Kyle Kendrick. One subject or name that kept coming up was however that of her cast-mate, James Clement.  James who was a past fan favorite and is on the “good” Heroes team, seems to  be losing some fans this season based on his recent behavior on the show, which included constantly yelling  at his team-mates.

According to Stephenie, she believes both James and other fan favorite Rupert Boneham have developed big egos.

Excerpts from Stephenie’s interview below -

Did you know your number was up?
I knew I was going. Our only hope was to switch Candice and Cirie to come with me, Colby, Tom, and we gave them a really good deal. We said, “Come with us and you won’t see your name come the merge. We’ll go to the final five and fight it out, whereas they go with the other people, they have ties on the other side, so they will use you to get to the merge but you can pretty much expect to be gone then.”

Did you know you would attract the ire of Rupert and James?
It was weird. It’s like, where did that come from? I didn’t know James at all. I didn’t even know his last name. I was just trying to get to know him and he just got in his little clique with Amanda and JT and Rupert, and Rupert didn’t like me. I didn’t even have a conversation with Rupert, hardly, but it was tough out there. Rupert and James are really high on themselves, so very flattered by themselves and very arrogant. If you threatened their popularity or strength, they kept away from you.

James seemed upset that the group agreed to listen to “one voice” in the challenge but you spoke.
That wasn’t what the fight was. It was “one voice” and the “one voice” was stumped! What happens when it’s one voice but that one voice can’t figure out the puzzle? We were all sitting there like, where is the direction coming from? So Candice, actually, took the lead, which you didn’t see, and it was never actually right or almost right. At the end of the challenge James is cursing and screaming at everyone and he looks at me and I was like, “Listen, I wasn’t the only one talking,” and he took that like I was saying, “It wasn’t me,” when I wasn’t saying that at all. He just lost it and started bringing up Palau. He may go further than me on the show but he went from the good guy to the biggest egomaniac, rudest bully anyone has ever seen.

Did it lift your spirits to have Tom defending you at Tribal Council?
That was amazing. Him and Colby to be such gentlemen and put their heads on the chopping block even more than they already were, it just shows the character and the type of people they are.

How are wedding plans going with your fiancé, Phillies pitcher Kyle Kendrick?
I will be married this November in Napa Valley and we are trying to figure out the honeymoon and my dress, we have an awesome wedding planner out of San Francisco, and it’s a lot of fun. This is my second time so I want to do a smaller wedding but Kyle has so many friends and family and so do I so it’s just going to be one big amazing party! We’re really excited.

Chris Harrisonbachelor-rozlyn

Tonight is the somewhat anticipated “Women Tell All” episode of this season’s The Bachelor, and host Chris Harrison promises it will be explosive.

According to Chris’s new interview with TVGuide.com, all questions about what exactly happened between contestant Rozlyn Papa and Bachelor producer Ryan Callahan will be answered tonight. Rozlyn has always denied anything romantic happened between she and Callahan.

Chris also promises tonight’s show will reveal some “antics” and “desperate attempts to get 15 more minutes of fame” by certain contestants. Jake Pavelka will also get to reunite with the departed Ali, who has been reported to be the next Bachelorette. Chris reveals “feelings are still there.”

Excerpts from Chris’s interview below -

TVGuide.com: What about her[Ali] and Jake’s interaction?
Harrison: The first thing he says is, “I can’t believe you left, I fully expected you to just show up in St. Lucia.” What was funny is when I talked to [Ali] privately, she said, “I expected him to just fly to San Francisco and get me.” I think they both were expecting the same thing. It’s just one of those really unfortunate instances, but the feelings are still there.

TVGuide.com: Will Rozlyn tell her side of the story?
Harrison: Rozlyn is back in full force as only Rozlyn can be. I got some heat and so did the show for being vague and so I went into the show [and] told everyone we’re going to get the truth out. You will hear from the women explosive new details that you have never heard before, because none of them have ever spoken about it until now. There will be 100 percent no question in anyone’s mind, other than Rozlyn’s, of course. She’s the only one confused about it in that relationship. The funny part, not even the guy involved in the relationship is confused. And when I tell you explosive new details, I mean details. Nothing vague about any of this. Time, place, everything — you will hear it all.

TVGuide.com: So after the special airs, there will be no doubt about what happened?
Harrison: It’s not a he-said, she-said thing — everybody knows what happened. It only behooves her to continue this and she’s the only one still talking about this. We are so done with her and her antics and her desperate attempts to get 15 more minutes of fame and that’s what this is about and we don’t care.

kourtney and Scott Disick

On the heel of numerous reports claiming her boyfriend and father of her child cheated on her, Kourtney Kardashian is now speaking out and denying there is trouble in paradise.

The Keeping Up With The Kardashians star, pictured above with Scott Disick during their Friday night visit to Las Vegas’s Jet Nightclub, spoke to PEOPLE magazine about the recent reports claiming Scott had been seen flirting with other women, not taking care of his son, and even teasing Kourtney about her baby weight.

“Scott is my partner and we do everything together,” said Kourtney. When asked if she is laughing off the infidelity rumors, she said, “Yes, of course. You can’t take it too seriously.”

According to PEOPLE, Kourtney and Scott strolled hand in hand Friday night, even kissing for reporters before heading to their VIP table. The pair reportedly continued their smooching on through the night.

As for their 9 week old son Mason, Kourtney revealed he was left in the care of her family, but couldn’t help keeping tabs him via her cell phone and picture messaging. “I’m like, ‘What is he doing? What is he wearing? Send me pictures,’ ” she said. “I’ve only left him to go to dinner twice.”

Scott also gave a recent interview during which he opened up about his sometimes volatile relationship with Kourtney’s mom, Kris Jenner.  According to Scott, he believes Kris favors the other men in her daughters lives over him simply because they are rich athletes.  “Kris just thinks that if you’re an athlete you tend to be a better person, when that’s not always the case.”

“When I hear Kris’ voice, I hear anger at all times,” Scott, 26, continued.  But he remains hopeful that things can be mended: “Honestly, deep down, I think we both love each other a little bit, and I think that will come to the surface in due time. We already are getting along better these days,” he said.
