It is the fourth week in the Big Brother household as Andrew Gordon, the 39-year-old Jewish podiatrist from Miami Beach, Fl, found himself the latest houseguest to be ousted.
Andrew however did not leave the house quietly. In what is being called one of the most memorable eviction speeches ever, Andrew made sure to out Kristen and Hayden’s secret showmance, much to the shock of many of the houseguests.
And in what seems like deja vu, the fake boobed wonder known as Rachel is once again the reigning HOH.
It also seems the not so brilliant folks behind BB12 have realized this season has been a tad boring, especially when you add in the failure of the Saboteur twist. It was announced on Thursday’s live show that the Saboteur twist will be returning, but this time it will only be for 2 weeks and America will get to choose which houseguest we want as the Saboteur. The chosen HG will however be given the opportunity to decline. If they choose to accept the challenge, they will receive $20,000 if they survive the 2 weeks. Something tells me Matt will be the perfect man for the job.
Below are spoilers for this week, and is it just me or has this season of BB been lackluster thus far? There aren’t really any likable people to root for. The brigade is annoying, Brendon seemed somewhat likable in the beginning and I even deemed him to be this season’s Jeff but his ridiculous showmance with the bimbo has taken away from him, Britney is annoying, Kristen is boring and only seems to want to ride Hayden‘s coattails, Ragan is a floater and Kathy who?
Plus it’s the fourth week and the house is still unaware of the Brigade alliance? How is this even possible? Do they not see the meetings these four seem to have a lot of? Sighs.

“She’s the face of our company,” says Sizzle Tans owner Rob Hornung to PEOPLE. “We’re running that commercial on 10 networks.” Hornung adds that they plan on “putting [Teresa’s] face — and very tan body — on billboards around New Jersey.” The video of Teresa’s ad is below.
Teresa On The View Talk Show - It seems Teresa will be appearing ABC’s The View on Monday, all this according to Teresa of course. When a fan asked her to confirm her DWTS appearance, Teresa tweeted, “I can’t comment on it anymore but I will be on “The View” on Monday on ABC… ;)”
UPDATE: A quick look at The View’s official website does indeed confirm Teresa will be a guest on Monday. Will be interesting to see the ladies grill her what she has to say.
Teresa’s Auction Goes Global & New Objection – The Wall Street Journal is now reporting that due to the high amount of publicity and press Teresa and hubby Joe Giudice’s upcoming auction has generated, the auction will now be made global. Potential bidders will be able to register at Proxibid, a website that does as many as 800 auctions a month and reports bidders from 175 countries, to bid on Teresa’s home items.
Teresa and Juicy Joe have however formally objected to the auction, according to Mike Sklar, a partner with A.J. Willner (the company planning to hold the auction).
Teresa and Joe are now claiming some of the items scheduled for auction were purchased after the bankruptcy petition, and that other items belong to relatives. Yes folks, they are really claiming that. Sklar however makes it clear these types of objections are typical. The objection hearing is scheduled for August 16.
And get this, the WSJ also adds in their report that they were unable to reach the Giudices for a comment on the story “because their phone is disconnected.”
The video of Teresa’s local tanning commerical is below -
According to TMZ, Snooki was arrested for disorderly conduct Friday afternoon with law enforcement telling TMZ she remains in police custody.
“She didn’t hurt anyone or get in a fight,” says a source to PEOPLE. “She just needs to be in a drunk tank for two hours.”
The arrest will likely be on your TV screens in a couple of months as Snooki and co are currently filming the third season of the hit reality show, and oddly enough the second season premiered yesterday night.
While the new season of Dancing With The Stars doesn’t debut until September 20th, the casting rumors and speculations have already began.
Coming off its most popular season ever, it seems DWTS might be ready to take things up a notch with a Jersey cast invasion.
First TMZ confirmed yesterday that Jersey Shorebreakout star The Situation is in secret negotiations to star on the upcoming season. According to TMZ, nothing’s official yet but sources close to the MTV reality star state the deadline for negotiations is Monday, so we should know by then whether or not he will be appearing on the show.
Which brings us to Teresa Giudice, star of the Real Housewives of New Jersey. The 37-year-old Bravo reality star, who might or might not be channeling a modern day cave woman in the above photo, made some interesting tweets yesterday.
“I am thinking about doing “Dancing with the Stars” though. What do you guys think? xx
Yes, I’m seriously thinking ab it as long as my kids come w me.
WOW, I did not expect the huge positive response from everyone about being on #DWTS ! Thank you! You’d all vote for me, right?
The costumes are definitely “me” right? Who should I make them give me as a partner? @MaksimC is the hottest, no? And he’s fiesty like me! #DWTS”
Those were the tweets made by Teresa on her twitter page. Oddly enough, no news outlet has confirmed that Teresa is indeed in talks to appear on the show.
However her appearance on the show is not far fetched considering she is one of the most popular Bravo housewives at the moment, albeit for all the wrong reasons, plus Kate Gosselin appeared on the show last season, leading to a noticeable increase in the show’s ratings. It would only make sense for ABC to want to cast someone similar to replace Kate, a reality star the public loves to hate aka Teresa Giudice. And while Teresa doesn’t have eight children, it can’t hurt that she has a plus 4.
And in case you’re wondering, the “stars” get paid to do the show, and Teresa would get a paycheck if she decided to do it. Kate Gosselin received a reported $500, 000 for her time on the show, though Teresa will likely not receive close to that amount. A DWTS rep also did not deny the casting rumors only telling Zap2it that casting is still ongoing in preparation for the new season.
When asked by a fan if she would be back for another season of RHONJ, Teresa replied: “Not sure. It’s not really fun filming with a felon… :(” Interesting that Teresa and her hubby Joe are currently being accused of perjury.
And when it comes to Bethenny, and the claims that Teresa copied her by also having ‘Skinny’ in her book title, Teresa responded: “When “Skinny Italian” went to press, @Bethenny ‘s only book was called “Naturally Thin.” They’re both great books, but totally different…”
She then added, “PS- I love love LOVE @kimbarnouin & @Bethenny so no fake Twitter feuds… (even tho I’m sure B’s sad my book outsold hers in 1/2 the time).”
And those folks are the words of a woman who’s kids’ crib, beds, TVs, toys are about to be auctioned off in less than a month.

MAJOR shake ups in the American Idol judging line up. Ellen DeGeneres announced late yesterday that she has quit the show, after just a year.
In a statement released to multiple media outlets, Ellen stated, “A couple months ago, I let FOX and the American Idol producers know that this didn’t feel like the right fit for me. I told them I wouldn’t leave them in a bind and that I would hold off on doing anything until they were able to figure out where they wanted to take the panel next.”
Ellen, 52, replaced Paula Abdul as a judge for the show’s ninth season. “It was a difficult decision to make, but my work schedule became more than I bargained for,” her statement continues, before adding that “it was hard for me to judge people and sometimes hurt their feelings.”
The AI news did not end there as TMZ then confirmed this morning that fellow judge Kara DioGuardihas been fired, and that the show will be going back to a three-judge format.
And who will be replacing Ellen and Kara on the judging panel? According to GossipCop and TMZ, it will be none other than Jennifer Lopez aka Jlo and rocker Steven Tyler.
GossipCop was the first to report the news, when they ran a story last night stating that American Idol had offered the two spots to both Jlo and Steven.
TMZ also confirmed this morning that assuming all deals are finalized, the judge’s panel will consist of Randy Jackson, Jennifer Lopez and Steven Tyler. Adding that the only way Kara will get her job back is if Jlo rejects the offer.
American Idol is reportedly hoping to announce their new judging line up on Monday.

After a long and tough labor, Bethenny and Jason are joined at the hospital by Jason’s parents to welcome baby Bryn into the world. Like most new parents, when it’s finally time to take Bryn home the two have no idea what is in store for them; they can’t even get the baby out of the car seat without the baby nurse’s help!
Sleepless nights and new motherhood turn Bethenny’s world upside, but with her patient husband and loving in-law’s, it’s nothing she can’t handle. How will Bethenny and Jason survive the first couple of weeks as clueless and exhausted parents? And will they ever master getting Bryn out of her car seat? Find out this at 10/9c on Bravo.
In other Bethenny news, though she has made her mark by doing reality shows, it seems Bethenny is very against her daughter ever following in her footsteps. She calls the idea “traumatizing.”
When asked by PEOPLE what she would do if Bryn grows up and tells her she wants to be on a reality show? “I will kill somebody,” answered Bethenny jokingly. “Not her, but I will kill somebody.”
Bethenny then went on to add that it might depend on the kind of show it is. If it’s a show like BGM which she describes as allowing you to be “really, totally honest and be yourself.”
She however dismissed the idea all together hoping “by the time she grows up, there won’t be even be reality shows.” But isn’t Bryn kinda sorta already a reality star, you know, considering she is about to become a regular cast member on Bethenny’s Getting Married?
Below is a preview clip of tonight’s episode.

According to the NYPost, Kim Zolciak has moved on from the still married Big Poppa as she reportedly got into a tiff with her new blonde boy toy boyfriend when she caught him “checking out a hot redhead while puffing a cigar. Kim caught him in the act,” said a witness.
Well the said boy toy has now been revealed. He is Kroy Biermann, a 24-year-old NFL player who plays for the Atlanta Falcons. InTouch magazine reports “they’ve been dating for about two months.”
An insider tells the mag Kim and the 6’3″, 260-pound defensive end were seen “laughing, kissing and have a great time together,” during Cynthia’s wedding on Saturday despite their drama.
In other Atlanta news, Lisa Wu Hartwell’s publicist is now confirming she is indeed leaving the show this upcoming season.
Carlos Scotttells the AJC Lisa “doesn’t want to just be a reality star.” It seems Lisa is trying to get her foot into acting. A few months back, she had a small role on a “Meet the Browns” episode. She just did a fitness DVD. And she’s working on a film with Robert Downey Jr., added her publicist.
And despite the widespread rumors than Lisa got the ax from the Bravo network for being too boring, her publicist insists the decision was mutual.
A new report by the Black Voices Web site also reveals that Lisa won’t even be on the opening credits and may only pop up in a handful of episodes as the show introduces the two new cast matesPhaedra Parks and Cynthia Bailey.
Black Voices also gives another reason for Lisa’s exit from the show, stating that Bravo “basically wanted to script elements of Lisa’s life and make her amp up the drama. She wasn’t with that at all. Lisa felt like if her real life alone wasn’t enough for the network, then maybe it was time for her to go.”
