Jon Gosselin is refusing to go away anytime soon as the reality dad of eight visited the Sundance Film Festival along with new 25 year old girlfriend Morgan Christie, pictured above with him.
According to UsWeekly, Jon and Christie were spotted making out Friday at House of Hype party at Cisero, showing lots of PDA. “Tons of PDA, holding hands, kissing,” an onlooker tells UsMagazine. “They kept walking around, it’s not like they tried to be discreet and stay in a corner.”
And though Christie is 25 year old, onlookers felt the law-school student “looked anywhere from 19 to 23.” A party goer said, “Anyone who saw him remarked how inappropriate it was. Gosselin seemed to love the attention.” As for Christie, another guest that night says she was “super clingy and got jealous when he talked to other girls.”
The Jon & Kate Plus 8 dad is reportedly stayed at a “massive mansion” owned by Christie’s wealthy family near Park City, Utah. But this wouldn’t be our Jon Gosselin if he failed to pick up some free swagt at the Film festival as the new couple was seeing snatching up some swag at the Talent Resources Gift Suite at the Sky Lodge.
“He picked up jewelry for his mother at Rebecca and Eos lip balm for all his children,” an observer tells Us. Gosselin, 32, was overheard telling a pal, “This year I’m having fun. I just went snowboarding, I’m relaxing with my girlfriend.”
It however seems Jon’s trip wasn’t all pleasure as sources says he was also “taking meetings about walk-on movie roles.”
According to Bravo, the show averaged 1.10 million viewers, which is the highest rated premier for the show and also a 37% increase from the second season’s premier episode.
In a new interview with People, Patti, 48, opens up about her new engagement, what to expect in this 3rd season and also dishes out some love advice for celebrities such as Jessica Simpson and Jennifer Aniston.
Give us a rundown on what to expect this season.
There are a lot more practical tips and information that everyone can use. We don’t just want to be reality TV that’s funny [and] then you turn us off. We don’t want to be Jersey Shore. Everyone is single right now. You can be 18 or 80 and you can be single, and nobody’s teaching anyone how to maneuver the waters online [or] with text messaging. … The other thing is we pumped up the volume on the gay dating. It was a really huge success story for us. Also, [Jason Davis] Gummi Bear is on. I know he just went to rehab and I had a real problem with him. He wouldn’t listen to me. He was crazy and off the wall — and I tried to get him to quit smoking. I call him Huggy Bear.
What’s the biggest difference between millionaires and the millionairesses you work with?
There’s the angry guy who’s made all this money and still can’t get the cheerleader he didn’t get in high school. But when it comes to women, they wake up at 40, their eggs are dried up and they’re like, “What the eff?” And then they start to [share] all their frustration and resentment — and I don’t have time for it because I’ve got to work. They’re high maintenance. Like, Tiger Woods, a perfect example — if he joined my service he would never want any of his exes or his wife to know his dirty laundry even if he was getting a divorce. Women want everyone to know they’ve been wronged.
You recently got engaged. How’s everything going with your fiancé, Andy Friedman?
He’s my best friend. We’re not tabloid whores. You don’t see us on the red carpet. We go to the mall. We have family that live in Westlake Village — which is like suburbia. We eat ice cream on the weekends and go see Avatar. I know [that] I live in a millionaire world by day, but [at] night, I’m Stepford. I cook. It’s kind of weird because I’m not what you think I am. If I were not a matchmaker, I’d be a chef.
Let’s talk about celebs. What tips do you have for Jessica Simpson in terms of finding love this year?
I really love Jessica. I wish she had met Nick Lachey after 30 — and I think they would have lasted. I think they met way too young and had too much too soon. [I wish] Jessica would take her time and really qualify people instead of jumping into relationships so quickly. She’s got to stop it. You know the way she does a business deal — where her father assesses all the situations before he signs his name on the dotted line? She needs to do the same thing with men — and not give her heart away so quick. She’s misunderstood.
And, finally, what about John Mayer?
John Mayer — he needs to own up to his mistakes because karma’s a bitch, baby. Let me tell you something. He’ll be one of those 45-year-old men still searching for the perfect girl and abusing and using. Then one day, the pee-pee’s going to go limp and Cialis and Viagra ain’t going to help him. I’d put him into singles boot camp right next to Jennifer Aniston. The two of them, I’d like to put into boot camp.
Very bad news for one American Idol contestant that reportedly made it into the top 24.
Michael Lynche (a.k.a. Big Mike) was reportedly cut from the show after his father revealed to his local Florida paper, The St. Petersburg Times, that Michael had made the top 24 — a violation of American Idol rules which requires the singers and their families to keep the Hollywood week results quiet until they’re broadcast on TV.
This report comes from Joe’s Place, the same website which recently revealed the top 24 Idol finalists. The site says Michael was replaced in the top 24 over the weekend.
The semifinalists are chosen at the end of Hollywood Week, when more than 120 hopefuls who got golden tickets in regional auditions move on to round two of the tryouts.
The Jersey Shore cast might be a lot of things but when it comes to their money, the cast is proving to be much smarter than most would give them credit for.
TMZ is reporting that the entire cast has rejected an offer from MTV to do a second season. Sources connected with the negotiation say MTV offered Snooki, Pauly D, “The Situation” and the others each a $10,000 signing bonus and promised to pay them $5,000 per episode to do a season two of the hit show.
The cast however rejected the offer and made it clear that they were negotiating “Friends” style … meaning everyone would get the same amount and it had to be a lot higher than MTV’s offer.
The sources reveal MTV came back and doubled the offer to $10,000 an episode. So far, the cast has yet to respond to the new offer.
Some of the cast members of The Hills are getting paid a whooping $100,000 per episode, which should give the Jersey Shore cast some leverage considering their ratings doubles that of the Hills. They averaged over 4.8 million viewers just last week.
An MTV spokesperson would not comment on the negotiations and MTV has yet to officially comment on a season two. TMZ also reports MTV has received thousands of tapes from wanna be Guidos and Guidettes wanting to be on the show.
As much as I like this cast, I’m not sure having them all back for a 2nd season would be a good idea. They have become too famous and I’m guessing the show will become too fake and scripted for a season 2, The Hills anyone? I think it would be better to do a Real World format, and bring back an entirely new cast for a 2nd season.
UPDATE - TMZ is also reporting that MTV has given the cast until the end of Monday (today) to accept the offer, or they will be replaced. This is allegedly a ploy by MTV to try to divide and conquer the cast. Apparently, the cast members who accept the offer will be on the 2nd season, and the ones who don’t will be replaced. We will be sure to keep you updated on this.
TELL US – SHOULD MTV BRING BACK THIS CAST FOR A 2ND SEASON OR CAST SOME NEW PEOPLE?
Apparently, Heidi Montag’smom is mortified that her 23 year old daughter underwent 10 cosmetic surgery procedures in one day to look like a completely different person. The Hills’star even revealed to PEOPLE magazine that she kept her surgery plans secret from friends and family.
Nine weeks after her drastic transformation, Heidi claims she is now dealing with the horrified reaction of the general public her mom, Darlene Egelhoff.
“I still can’t believe I’m 23 and mom is reacting this way,” says Heidi. “I’m nervous to go home and face her – especially with cameras rolling.” Heidi herself A source close to the family tells PEOPLE that Heidi’s mom Darlene “is horrified and having a total breakdown. She can’t wait to confront Heidi when she goes home.”
It seems Heidi’s mom will be getting her wish soon as “Heidi is planning to head back to her small town of Crested Butte very soon,” says the source. And not to worry as MTV cameras will be there to capture every tender moment for the Hills.
In other news, Bravo housewives are also sharing their opinions on Heidi’s new face and body.
Gretchen Rossi had the following to say – “She looks like a Cat Woman now! The one eyebrow just goes so far up now. The eye looks weird to me now.” The OC star star told RadarOnline. “She didn’t need it. She was beautiful. She was really such a pretty girl. What is she 23 or 24?”
Alexis McCord of the NYC Housewives also had the following to say about Heidi – “It does not set a good example to her fans,” she told Radar. “One thing I have learned from doing this show is that people really do judge or commend you.” She continues, “And there are a lot of young impressionable women that watch her show. It is terrible to think that a young woman with body issues could be watching it, see her transformation and commend her thinking that having surgery is the answer.”
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.

“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.”
