Reality star Kim Kardashian got punched in the face and the video of the punch is below. The bad news? It was only for a celebrity boxing match.
The Keeping Up With The Kardashians star, along with some of her family members, participated in a celebrity boxing charity event back in November. The fights will be shown in tonight’s episode of the E! reality show.
“I’ve never been hit so hard,” Kim, 29, says in the clip (below). Kim’s sister KhloeOdom Kardashian was however proud of her sis for fighting back.
“I’m really impressed,” said Khloe. “Kim looks aggressive out there — she’s defending herself!”
And though she claimed to have gotten a black eye from the match (she posted the above “black eye” photo on her site), Kim was however a good sport about the match. “The boxing match was crazy!” Kim Tweeted the night of the fight. “I’m a little banged up today but all worth it for charity!!!”
CBS has finally unveiled the identities of the 11 teams that will be competing of the 16th season of the Amazing Race. And as previously reported, Big Brother’s Jeff Schroeder and Jordan Lloyd will indeed be on the show as a team.
The new season is set to premier on Sunday, February 14 at 8PM ET/PT. Another surprising cast member is 20-year-old Caite Upton, the former Miss South Carolina Teen USA who made headlines and became infamous when she gave a such as nonsensical answer during the interview portion of the 2007 Miss Teen USA pageant.
As always, the members of each team already have a pre-existing relationship of some kind. For this season, five of the teams are couples who are married or dating, while four teams feature family members and two are friends or co-workers.
This season’s cast features the usual assortment of models, actresses and model/actresses, it however also features several contestants with more unusual occupations — including a baseball coach, a bull rider, a cowboy, two (soon-to-be former, apparently) undercover detectives, and a 71-year-old personal trainer.
40,000 miles were covered during this season, including visits to five continents and eight countries. The race which began with public transportation to LAX airport (a first for Amazing Race), consisted of the teams flying to Chile, where they encountered “one of the most daunting Roadblocks in the history of the series,” according to CBS. Sounds fun!
THE CAST PHOTOS OF EACH OF THE 11 TEAMS AND BRIEF BIO IS BELOW! –
Dating couple from “Big Brother 11,” Jordan Lloyd and Jeff Schroeder. Jordan is a 22-year-old receptionist from North Carolina and Jeff is a 31-year-old advertising salesman from Illinois.
Father & daughter teammates Steve Smith and Allison Smith from Encinitas, California. Steve is a 57-year-old pro baseball coach and Allison, 23, works in marketing and sales.
“I’ve never cheated on him, so I don’t exactly know what he means by that,” said Tamra, 42, in a new interview with iVillage. “And then verbal abuse. I’m so verbally abusing him in my head right now.”
Despite her marital drama and very public divorce, Tamra continues to stay positive. “I’m sure I’m going to go through many ups and downs with emotions, but right now I feel good,” she says. And what about dating in her near future? “There will be a time that I date, but right now I’m just focusing on my kids and trying to get settled in my new apartment and just waiting to see what happens next,” she says.
When asked about her on-and-off arch nemesis and costar, Gretchen Rossi, Tamra had the following to say, “I think so much has been said between the two of us that I don’t think we’ll ever be best friends, but we can be cordial to each other in social environments,” says Tamra, joking, “You know I don’t call her up and ask her, ‘Hey how you doing? You and Slade want to come over?’”
In another interview with UsWeekly, Tamra reveals she has some regrets when it comes to her family and how she handled things. Mostly over some of the things she said on the show. Tamra says, “When it comes to the family . . . [there are] maybe some thing I shouldn’t have said.”
The finale of MTV’s hit show – Jersey Shore aired last night and many fans are wondering what is next for the cast.
UsWeekly caught up with the cast members who revealed their future plans. As we reported earlier, Snooki claims to be in talks to get her own reality or dating show. She even said she has an offer from VH1.
As for Jenni “J-Woww, she has received a nice offer to pose for playboy. “I got a really good offer from Playboy,” J-Woww said “But I’m going to hold off and see.”
DJ Pauly D is also considering stripping for Playgirl. “I’m just trying to get my head straight right now!” he told Us. (But after Snooki said she’d want to see that issue, Pauly D responded, “If she buys it, I’m gonna do it!”)
Mike “The Situation“ reveals he’s “got an offer to do something for primetime TV… like a sitcom of some sort. I think it may be a sketch comedy, or, like, the real deal. Something that’s really awesome… it’s a big thing!”
As for the show’s couple – Ronnie and Sammi – it seems they might really be done for good this time (they broke up during the reunion show when Ronnie saw some unseen footage of Sammi talking/flirting with The Situation.) TMZ is reporting Ronnie hosted a party last week and was photographed creeping with making out some random girls.
It will be interesting to see how MTV deals with doing a 2nd season, which is sure to come considering 4 million viewers tuned in last week. MTV is said to be considering bringing back this cast for season 2, or bringing in new people similar to the Real World formula.
The Bachelor’s Jake Pavelka is promising us that we ain’t seen nothing yet when it comes to the ABC dating show! According to Jake, we should expect another dramatic event in his season of The Bachelor, he even promises this will be much worse than the Rozlyn Papa drama.
Really? much worse than a bachelorette cheating on you Jake? In a new interview, the 31 year old pilot reveals the lowest point “is yet to come,” Jake tells ET. “It won’t be any secret,” he adds.
“Horrible. Awful. On a scale of one to 10, it nears a 10.” Jake admits that the to-be-revealed event created “devastation” for him. “It is juicy now,” he teases. “It is going to get a lot juicier.”
There have been spoilers revealing one of the girls will end up leaving the show on her own accord, could that be what Jake is referring to? Only time will tell.
As for the dishonest and crazy women on his season, Jake claims he harbors no ill will toward Rozlyn nor Michelle Kujawa, who left the show under less than ideal circumstances. Of Rozlyn’s alleged affair with a show producer, he adds, “If she truly found love, then I’m happy for her.” Sure you are Jake.
Jake also continues to dodge the engagement question. “My parents don’t know,” he scoffs. “They don’t have any idea of the outcome, so it is amusing to think that there are people out there who do.”
Interestingly enough, tonight’s episode of the hit show will focus more on the couple’s creepy relationship. I came across the following story from the site – AbsurdtoSublime which details the extent the Bellinos went to in order to appear on the show and become famous. This allegedly came from a reliable source -
“Alexis and Jim did everything they could to get on this show. They bought a house from Jeana and befriended her. They bought a car from Simon and befriended him. Alexis joined Gretchen’s gym and befriended her. They watched the show every week since it’s been aired and tried to get as many connections as possible. I do have to say, it worked. Though it was expensive! Fancy houses and luxury cars aren’t cheap. Hope they feel it is worth it.”
Very interesting. There’s another story out about Jim Bellino’s past and businesses endeavors. The show simply lists Jim as being a business man with little mention of the exact type of businesses he operates. There have been numerous reports that Jim owns a pawn shop.
According to GossipList, Jim was indicted in 2000 by the Feds for counterfeit autographed sports memorabilia. A source posted the following -
“A James Carlos Bellino, who owned a business called Forensic Document Services, located at 1115 N. Tustin Ave., Orange, CA, was indicted by the Feds in 2000 (3:00-cr-03071-JM: USA v. Bellino) for conspiracy to commit mail fraud.
The accusations involved sales to federal agents of forged sports memorabilia, specifically, baseballs with forged Babe Ruth signatures. The government subsequently deferred prosecution. a short hand way of letting Bellino off without jail time if he paid restitution of almost $30,000, went on probation for a year, and got out of the sports memorabilia business.”
TELL US: WHAT ARE YOUR THOUGHTS ON THE BELLINOS? AND TONIGHT’S EPISODE OF THE OC HOUSEWIVES?
The Jersey Shorecast is proof that all publicity is good publicity, as the strong and loud criticism from lawmakers and Italian groups has only helped propel the show and it’s cast into being very popular. Plus with the very high ratings, the show will certainly be returning for a 2nd season.
The entire cast of Jersey Shore spent some time in Los Angeles recently, and paid a visit to the Chelsea Lately show during their LA stay. Though Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi and Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino clashed on last week’s episode of the shore when he made fun of her “rolls,” the two seem to have now kissed and made up, literally. As previews for tonight’s finale episode show the two hooking up in a hot-tub.
It seems their new found “friendship” might have continued post show when on E!’s Chelsea Lately, host Chelsea Handler asked Snooki and The Situation if they’ve hooked up. “Yeah, yeah, yeah,” he replied. But it’s not a big deal according to Snooki. “It’s not awkward at all,” she said. “If I wanna make out with him right now, I can. It’s not weird.”
The Situation also clarified what “hooking up” means. “On the show, it’s just a kiss,” he said. “But sometimes, on the road, it’s a little more than that. We save the special stuff for on the road,” he jokingly said. When asked if he’s gotten luckier with the ladies since appearing on the show, he smiled. “I like to think [I was popular with women] before the show,” he said. “But after the show, it’s been a Situation.”
The cast also hit up West Hollywood hot spot Voyeur, during which Paul “Pauly D” Delvecchio said they partied with Lindsay Lohan and “Lindsay’s mom,” Dina. They were however the most star struck when they met Leonardo DiCaprio.
“It was weird, ‘cuz we were with Kevin Connelly the whole night, and he took us over to his VIP table, and there was someone with a hat pulled down, and it was Leo,” he said. “All of a sudden, he looks up and goes ‘GTL, baby!’ And I was like ‘Yeah!’”
“GTL” is Jersey Shore-slang for “Gym, tan, laundry.”
There are also talks of Snooki, the break out star of the show, getting her own reality show. According to Snooki, she has received numerous offers to have her own reality or dating show.
“Definitely there is no set thing, but it has been talked about,” Snooki told UsMagazine. “I got offers from VH1 and other reality networks,” said Snooki, 21.
Every season of The Bachelorhas a resident “crazy” person. You know that desperate woman who feels she is the one for whomever the Bachelor is, and feels she is entitled to his time and affection.
Well folks, meet Michelle Kujawa, as she very well lived up well to that title this season. Michelle recently appeared on The Ellen DeGeneres Show and talked about her time on the show, and feelings for Jake Pavelka.
Michelle told Ellen she’d return to the show if she had the chance but that “it’s too late.” At least she realizes it’s too late.
The 26-year-old office manager, who threatened to leave the show twice before finally begging asking Jake to kiss her, which he reluctantly agreed to, opened up about that awkward kiss. “I was in it full force and I didn’t feel anything back from him so why waste each other’s time?” Michelle said.
When asked by Ellen is she thought Jake had made a mistake by sending her packing, she replied: “I think it would have been different if we had a one-on-one date because it is really hard to get to know somebody [on a] group date. It was like eight of us and it was the whole day and evening and I didn’t even get to talk to him until that night.”
Michelle however seems to have a sense of humor about her crazy appearance on the show, saying she can only “laugh” about how she was portrayed. “You have to expect something like that going into the show,” she said. “They have to show drama.”
