It’s that time again folks! As we near the 13th season premiere of Dancing With The Stars, the casting rumors have began!
According to the latest issue of UsWeekly magazine, being considered for the upcoming season are reality stars Snooki and Rob Kardashian, alongside talented celebrity/singer/actress Christina Milian.
Sources reveal that Jersey Shore star Snooki, 23, is in talks to do the show! In addition to the Snooks, Kim Kardashian’s little brother Rob, 24, is also in discussions with the network. “Rob is such a low-key guy, so it would be interesting to see if he’d come out of his shell,” Kris Jenner a source says. Rob would be following in the footsteps of his sister Kimmie who did the show back in 2008 and was voted off during week 3.
As for R&B singer Christina, 29, a source says, “She’s a possibility!” Also a possibility? Boxer Mike Tyson, 45, “is being considered,” according to a second insider. Ai ya ya. Should be an interesting season!
The new season of DWTS is set to premiere September 19 on ABC.
TELL US – THOUGHTS ON THE CASTING RUMORS? WHICH OF THESE “STARS” WOULD YOU LIKE TO SEE?
Ed Bergan, owner of the Something Sophisticated clothing store in Franklin Lakes, New Jersey did a photo shoot with Rich and his son Joseph to help promote his store after they reached out to him. In exchange, they received some free shirts (two shirts apiece).
That all sounds good enough. However some drama ensued when according to Ed, Rich decided he didn’t get enough free shirts (the polo shirts retail for close to $100 a piece) and had his assistant send the store a scathing email, demanding they stop using Rich’s image to promote the store.
In the email, which was sent to Reality Tea, an assistant for both Kathy and Rich writes, “Richard and Joseph lending themselves to your shop for a photo shoot is definitively much more of a benefit to you than it is to them… I feel it is totally of bad taste and disrespectful not only to give both Richard and Joseph a limit of two items that they could take from your shop.”
The email continues, “Two shirts at a price point of a total for maybe $100 in exchange for all that associated your shop with both Richard and Joseph is not at all being thankful nor grateful for whom they are. Richard and his family are already established brands.” Wowzers.
To end the email, the assistant Leslie Mota then demands the store immediately stop using the Wakiles’ images for any promotion. “I must regretfully inform you that we are not allowing the pictures to be used by you, your shop and/or photographer in anyway. We are not authorizing you to use them for the purpose of promoting your business and/or clothes line.”
The store owner first relayed the story to Tom Murro of Celebritymagnet.com, who was there visiting the store with new couple Kim Granatell and Michael Lohan. Yes the two are reportedly now dating. Tom adds that the store however has other supporters in the form of the Manzo brothers, and as for Kim G., she was “disgusted beyond words” upon hearing the store owner’s story.
The Wakiles have yet to respond to this story. In their defense, these are the words of their assistant… though the assistant was likely doing their bidding. A screen shot of the entire email is below plus a photo of Kim G. and Michael Lohan at the store.
Meanwhile, a week after writing the following on her blog – “It’s getting harder and harder to keep the girls from reading the outrageous headlines when we’re in the store,”Teresa Giudice once again graces the cover of In Touch magazine while granting them yet another interview! The cover story this time around? “I’m Terrified of Being Poor.”
Teresa is pictured on the cover with one of her daughters which brings up a point made by one of our readers, Frankswif3y, who questioned in a recent comment if Teresa is using images of her kids to gain public sympathy. In looking at her five recent In Touch covers, she is pictured with her daughters on four of those covers. But we’ll let you be the judge. The latest cover is below.
Despite the awful ratings of her new VH1 series Famous Food which also stars other famewhores such as Heidi Montag and Jake Pavelka, Danielle sings the praises of the show. “I’m so in love with this new show [“Famous Food”] and my new network, VH1,” said Danielle. “My first instinct was ‘yes, yes, yes’ when I was offered the show because it’s not Bravo and it’s not ‘Housewives.’ They did not [look after me] and I really needed that for my children as well. I’m so happy with VH1 it’s not even funny, and they give me so much freedom.”
And despite all of the million reports out there that confirm she was fired by Bravo, Danielle still insists she quit the RHONJ. “The difference between this and the last one is there is resolve at the end of the day,” she explained to the Huffington Post. “And no one is trying to kill me. It got really scary for me and for my children. They begged me not to go back [to Bravo] after the reunion.”
Danielle went on to take more shots at her former costars as well as Bravo’s Andy Cohen, citing no one contacted her to offer condolences after her mother passed away last year. “Not one of them,” stated Danielle. “The only person on bravo who reached out to me was Patty from Millionaire Matchmaker. Not Andy, not one person.” Oh Danielle, Patty was probably trying to sign you up for her TV show!
Danielle also vowed to never watch the RHONJ ever again. “I don’t miss the girls because I never really liked any of them. No I wont watch it. I wouldn’t give it a second of my ratings or my time,” she added.
As we reported, Danielle’s new show Famous Food flopped really badly for the VH1 network, only garnering 430,000 viewers for it’s premiere episode. In comparison the RHONJ was watched by over 2.2 million viewers the same week. Famous Food is the least-watched series debut of the year on VH1.
In fact VH1 has now decided to move the show from Sunday nights to Wednesdays starting tonight.
According to a new report by TMZ, Kim Kardashian has decided to sue Old Navy for using an alleged look-alike in one of their commercials.
If you recall, the Old Navy commercial made headlines earlier this year after some fans stated they had to do a double take to see if the girl in the commercial, Melissa Molinaro, was indeed Kim.
The Keeping Up With The Kardashiansstar remained mum on the topic back then, though sources revealed she was not happy with the ad campaign. In the lawsuit, Kim claims Old Navy intentionally used the look-alike in an effort to deceive the public into thinking Kim was affiliated with them.
TMZ also reports Kim was more furious that Old Navy was tweeting to her page about the look-alike in hopes of garnering even more publicity. One of those tweets included, “@CBSNEWS reports that Old Navy’s Super CUTE star looks like @kimkardashian. #LOL. What do you think?”
So how much does Kim feel she deserves from Old Navy? Just a mere $15 – $20 million! Wowzers. The Old Navy commercial is below for those who have yet to see it plus some photos from the ad.
My take on this – Upon first seeing the Old Navy commercial, I honestly did a double take because I thought it was Kim. However it was rather obvious it wasn’t Kim plus for starters, there was nothing in the press about Kim doing such a commercial. While Kim’s lawsuit might have some merit, this is a very bad PR move for her. While the public tolerates her, they don’t like her or her talentless family. She’s become filthy rich off a sex tape and having little to no morals. Trying to get more money from her celebrity via a lawsuit is not going to win her any more fans. As expected, in reading the comments on TMZ, over 90% of them are very negative towards her. Similar to her public comments on the Casey Anthony case, this just seems ill advised and has Kris Jenner’s fingerprints all over it. So the question is…

The last time the two were reunited, it was for a highly-charged no holds barred smackdown sitdown interview about their break-up. Those evil geniuses at ABC decided it would be best to add fuel to the fire by having the formerly engaged couple live in a house together while also competing for $250,000… alongside Vienna’s new boyfriend Kasey Kahl of course!
In the new promo below, which first aired during Monday night’s episode of The Bachelorette, we get a sneak peek into the drama on the show. “I hope she falls 3,000 feet to her death,” says Jake in a quote we can only hope was taken out of context. “She’s trying to hurt me so she can get the money,” adds Jake.
Vienna is a bit more emotional as she snipes, “I hate him!” The preview clip is below via UsWeekly.
Bachelor Pad season 2 premieres August 8 at 8/7c on ABC. That premiere date means Jake will be appearing on two reality shows concurrently as he is also starring on VH1’s new flop show Famous Food.

In a new interview with E! Online, the formerly? cra cra Kelly reveals what she misses and doesn’t miss about Bethenny. “I love it when people do well,” said Kelly about Bethenny’s success both on and off the screen. “The better that she does, the better the franchise of Housewives does.” Uh???
Kelly goes on to add that she doesn’t miss the epic fights on the RHONY. “Everybody…every single person…misses the altercations between Bethenny and I,” she stated. “For whatever reason, they just love the fact that we fight for four minutes of television. Do I miss fighting with her? I don’t like fighting. Do I miss her on the show? She was fun.”
Kelly also wants us to know she currently has a very busy social life. “I’m actually just seeing a lot of different people and just doing the dating process,” she shared. “I was married for such a long time and then I just took a break from just dating in general to get my feet firmly on the ground…” When it comes to her celebrity crushes, Kelly “loves” Jason Segal and is “obsessed” with Jimmy Fallon.
In other NYC news, in addition to being a dentist, financial adviser, music producer, video director and lawyer, it seemsJill Zarin also moonlights as a Dietitian!
In a new interview with OK! magazine, Jill, 46, gives fans tips on how to lose weight. “Always eat breakfast,” says expert Jill. “Eat something. Start your engine. It doesn’t have to be a full breakfast – it could be an orange. If you don’t start your engine, your body thinks it’s starving itself, and it won’t let you burn calories. Your body is tricked into thinking it’s going to be starved and it’s saved as fat.”
Rule #2? “Try not to eat past 7:00 at night,” reveals Jill. “That’s when people tend to put on weight, because they eat at night and you’re not moving around enough to burn anything if you’re laying around. Try to eat within working hours. I say eat within working hours, 8-6, and don’t eat after those working hours. Don’t eat after 6 or 7.”
And Jill’s final rule? “Make sure you’re hydrated. It’s going to be a hot summer. Drink, drink, drink. And if you don’t like water, then drink lemonade, drink iced tea. Drink!”
But just in case you’re not able to follow all of Jill’s tips, you can always buy her Skweez shapewear to take some pounds off your look!
