survivor-russell-hantz

Russell Hantz went from being the most hated man in Survior history to the most liked. He has also been called “the greatest player of all time” by the show’s host – Jeff Probst.

Frankly, there’s nothing Russell, 37, did not do during his season of Survivor. He sabotaged the camp by emptying canteens and burning socks, he lied about being a Hurricane Katrina victim, and he was able to get rid of people he thought were threats. In his latest interview with PEOPLE, Russell talks about his game and his thoughts on not winning the $1 million prize.

Excerpts from his interview below:

You said at the final tribal council your chance of winning had dropped to 55 percent. Were you still that sure you had won?

It kind of shook me up. I knew I didn’t win because I can read people that good. It’s like, you try so hard for something, and when you hear you didn’t win it, it’s rough. I thought maybe there’s a shot, but I started thinking and thinking about it when I was home, and analyzing everything that everybody said, and I was like, ‘I didn’t win.’ That’s why I already opened the website, russellgotscrewed.com. That’s why it’s so impressive to know that John did vote for me and Shambo did vote for me because you da man if you can get stabbed in the back, turn around, and give that person the vote. That takes a strong personality.

At first, you were the most hated contestant ever. By the finale, you were the Fan Favorite. Is that because people began to understand your game play?

Everything I did out there was strategic, every single move — burning the socks, pouring out the water. Best move I made was pouring out the water and burning the socks! It’s a tough thing to do because when you do it, you can’t get caught because if you get caught, you’re going home. But I went in it with very aggressive play and I think it worked for me. I made it all the way to the end and I would never change anything about the way I played the game.

Did you have a plan in mind when you started?

You don’t know how you are going to play the game until you are out there because you have to evaluate the people that are around you. So when I went out there, I’d seen that I could manipulate them, so I took control of the game the whole time, from day one. As soon as we were able to talk when we got out to the island, I said, ‘Let’s get some bamboo,’ and you see me do it four or five times. Right then, I was trying to see whom I could trust. I couldn’t trust Betsy. I couldn’t trust Marisa. I knew I could trust Ashley for a little while. I knew I could trust Natalie the whole time. The physical game is good and all, but for me, it’s a mental game and you just control people. And it’s crazy how you can control people so easily.

Were you a fan of Survivor before going on it?

I had never been a fan of the show. I just never really watched it! I put my application in, never thought they would call me up, but then I watched the last all-stars, where Parvati won, then I fell in love with it.

You held on to your third hidden immunity idol when you didn’t play it the last time you could. Where is it now?

Oh, it’s in my game room. It’s in my game room with a picture of me finding it and the rules for it and the idol just sitting there!

jon-290

TMZ is reporting that Jon Gosselin‘s apartment in New York was apparently ransacked and vandalized.  According to Jon’s lawyer, a “butcher knife” wielding maniac sliced and diced the entire place into a million pieces.

His attorney tells TMZ that when Jon entered his Manhattan apartment Saturday afternoon, he found his “shoes, shirts, luggage, bed, curtain, rugs and other furnishings” had been slashed by a “sick perpetrator.”  The perpetrator also stole the following items – Jon’s television, CD player, coffee maker, a Nintendo Wii game, dishes, pots and pans. His attorney also says a Ming vase, believed to be over 100 years old … was “smashed to pieces.”

So who is this sick perpetrator? Hailey Glassman seems to be a suspect.  According to TMZ, a note signed with Hailey’s first and last name was left behind, “speared” to Jon’s bedroom dresser with a butcher knife. Law enforcement confirms Hailey’s name was signed at the bottom of the note, but explain that doesn’t mean she had anything to do with it. TMZ also confirmed that whoever wrote the note called Jon a cheater.

Jon’s lawyer says the NYPD fingerprinted and photographed the scene yesterday and Jon wants felony charges brought against whoever is responsible.

Radaronline is reporting that Hailey has lawyered up and will only talk to cops with her lawyer present.

We reported yesterday that Hailey was none too happy with Jon, as she claimed Jon pocketed the rent money she was giving him for their NY apartment, all while not paying the rent.

The list of the people who hate Jon Gosselin continues to grow daily.  Hailey Glassman is now coming out saying that Jon stole her rent money.

RadarOnline spotted Hailey moving out of the New York apartment she shared with Jon on Wednesday.  Hailey is now claiming she had to move because Jon had been pocketing the rent money she had been giving him, all while not paying the rent.

Hailey took to her twitter page on Friday to spill some details regarding the troubled Jon & Kate Plus 8 dad. She tweeted:

“FYI That apartment everyone calls ‘Jon’s Apartment’ was MY apartment as well. We split rent! He’s been living off my family and I.”

“So get your facts right before you all assume. My family and I found out a week ago he’s been pocketing our rent money ‘n not paying the rent!”

This story is in addition to a National Enquirer story that alleges Jon owes Hailey the amount of $90,000.

New Jersey lawmakers are the latest group to get on the anti Jersey Shore bandwagon.

The AP is reporting that the the New Jersey Italian American Legislative Caucus, sent a letter to the president of Viacom, MTV’s parent company on Tuesday. Caucus chairman Joseph Vitale is asking that the show be immediately taken off the air.

The group believes the show promotes derogatory ethnic stereotypes and is “wildly offensive.” The NJ lawmakers are also asking advertisers to boycott the show. As of Wednesday, MTV has yet to issue a response.

In other news, we reported previously that Italian actress Alyssa Milano was not a big fan on the show. In the hilarious Funny or Die clip below, the actress can be seeing portraying castmember Nicole aka Snooki, in a parody of the popular Dove beauty commercial. The clip is below -



Jersey Shore cast members Mike The Situation, Snooki, and DJ Paulie Dialogue also get in on the fun in their own parody video.

The video can be seen below –

lynne-and-frank-curtin

Frank Curtin, husband of Lynne Curtin of the Real Housewives of Orange County, has a perfectly good reason for skipping out on his mandatory court date in an Orange County courthouse Tuesday for a $1.2 million judgment they were ordered to pay to a former business partner.. He sort of forgot.

In a new interview with RadarOnline, Frank attempts to explain what happened. “I just sort of forgot to go because of the Christmas season,”said Frank who is planning to set a new appointment on Wednesday.

And though a bench warrant (a form of arrest warrant) was issued for the couple on Tuesday, don’t expect to see them in handcuffs anytime soon. “A bench warrant was issued on December 21st,” a court source tells Radar. “But it’s on hold until January 27th. As long as they show up at court by that date there will be no live warrant for them. If they don’t show by then then the warrant will be active and they will be arrested.”

Frank does acknowledge that this has been a very tough year for him, “My business all went south and I have been trying to work my way out of it. In the last 4 years I have lost everything, and I went through some really hard times.” He continues, “This has been the worst year of my life.”

Frank goes on to defend Lynne, saying the lawsuit had nothing to do with her, and she should have never been named in the lawsuit. “I don’t want her to get hurt,” Frank said about Lynne, “I feel bad for her.”

Gosselin Kate

Kate Gosselin might be one step closer to having to work a regular 9 – 5, as RadarOnline is reporting she has been axed from a new TV show that she shot a pilot for because the executives thought she was too controversial.

Kate shot the pilot for the show back in September. She was to be one of the several hosts for the Momlogic TV pilot. She joined Food Network star Paula Deen, Lee Woodruff and former Early Show co-host Rene Syler. The show, which has been described as The View for working moms (umm isn’t The View for working moms as well?), is said to be on life support and will likely be canceled all together.

It is however still on schedule to be sold at the convention where TV shows are pitched, but an insider said there is little chance it will make it.  A source close to the situation told Radar that the high-level executives believed Kate was too controversial for the show and didn’t think she was ready for a full-time hosting job, even as part of a panel.

This unfortunately does not mark the end of Kate on television. As we reported earlier, TLC is developing a show for her, that should debut sometime in the spring. The concept of the show has yet to be made public, but TLC is reportedly very committed to the new show.

bad-girls-club-natalie-nunnbad-girls-club-portia-beaman

Watching an episode of Oxygen’s Bad Girls Club gives you a better understanding of why we live in such a messy world today. This season of Bad Girls Club has definitely been the baddest one to date. It is been filled with none stop drama and we have already seen 2 major fights as well as one of the girls get sent home. Did I mention we’re only 4 episodes in?

Ratings have soared this season. A MediaWeek report shows The Dec. 15 episode scared up 1.42 million total viewers, making it the most-watched nonfinale telecast in Oxygen’s 10-year history. One person to thank for that is the very loud drama queen known as Natalie Nunn. Natalie aka I RUN LA, perhaps the most controversial bad girl in the show’s history, has managed to piss off of all her castmates with her loud and crazy antics.

She hit fellow housemate Kendra in the face in an earlier episode. Kendra –who for some reason feels to need to kiss up to Natalie in order to “network” in LA — managed to forgive Natalie and allowed her to stay. It however seems Natalie took things a step too far when she decided to bring up Portia Beaman‘s daughter during an arguement from last night’s episode. Portia didn’t take too well to her daughter’s name being thrown in the mix, and ended up attacking Natalie, repeatedly punching her. Portia was of course sent home.

Portia had the following to say in her Oxygen blog -

“Here’s how the fight started between me and Natalie. She lied about me not knowing who my daughter’s father was and she tried to degrade me as a parent! I’m a tyrant when it comes to my daughter, I’m really protective over her! She is all that I have in this world and I cherish every moment I have with her so, Natalie even mentioning my daughter out of her filthy mouth set me off! I don’t regret my actions at all.”

Natalie had this to say on her blog -

I would never judge Portia based on her mother skills or care about how she raises her child if she didn’t for no reason when she was drunk call me a “cheap ho”. The problem was Portia wanted to put people down based on what information she had on someone but never thought to look in the mirror and evaluate her own situation. So when I put Portia down, it was not to talk about her innocent daughter or Portia as a mother. It was to let Portia know you shouldn’t throw rocks in a glass house, sweetheart. Because while she was having babies and not knowing who the father was and struggling to be a single parent and calling me a “cheap ho”, I was graduating from one of the top 10 colleges in America. Fight ON Portia muahhhh….

This season of BGC has definitely been a crazy one all thanks to Natalie. As insane as she is, she definitely makes the show very entertaining to watch. Portia was actually becoming my favorite houseguest so it was a bit sad to see her leave. Natalie definitely took things too far by mentioning Portia’s daughter, I will say however that Portia did take some low blows in some of the things she said to Natalie. It’s interesting to see the surprise in Natalie every time she realizes the other housemates don’t like her.

Kendra has been a bit sad to watch this season. It’s very obvious she kisses up to Natalie in hopes of gaining connections and living the “good life” in LA, but umm will someone let her know Natalie herself is barely connected and all her “I RUN LA” rants are simply just rants as well as major delusions of grandeur. As for the other houseguests, Flo overreacted when she snapped during last week’s episode, Annie is not a “bad girl,” not sure why she’s on the show, Amber & Kate both seem okay so far.

TELL US – WHAT ARE YOUR THOUGHTS ON LAST NIGHT’S EPISODE AND THIS SEASON OF BAD GIRLS CLUB?
