Fox has announced Luke Conley, as the “husky hunk” bachelor who will star on their new dating show focusing on full figured women.
Luke will choose from 20 full-figured females and (hopefully) find the right woman on More to Love, a new dating competition airing on Fox this summer.
The 26-year-old former college football player turned successful real estate investor, Conley stands 6-foot-3 and weighs “over 300 pounds,” says Fox’s press release. Conley claims he is looking for a woman who is “intelligent, passionate, down-to-earth, full-figured and comfortable in her own skin.”
The ladies Luke will have to pick from seem to differ in a lot of aspects. With careers ranging from a plus-sized model to lawyer to yes, an actual rocket scientist, each of the 20 females seems unique.
More to Love, hosted by full-figured supermodel Emme, is set to premier Tuesday, July 28, at 9 pm/ET.
Kendra Wilkinson, star of the Girls Next Door and Kendra! finally tied the knot this weekend! Kendra married NFL player, Hank Baskett at the playboy mansion. And no, Hugh Hefner did not give her hand away in marriage as was previously speculated. Her brother, Colin, walked her down the aisle.
The guests included her former Girls Next Door costars Bridget Marquardt and Holly Madison, as well as their ex Hugh Hefner.
Kendra, 24, wore more than $100,000 worth of platinum and diamond jewelry by designer Michael Barin. She is said to have personally selected the 4.25-carat platinum drop earrings ($47,000), the 2.5-carat platinum pendant ($33,700) and the 4.5-carat bracelet ($21,000).

Things have taken a much sour turn for Jacqueline Laurita and Danielle Staub since the taping of the reunion show, as Jacqueline has now ended her friendship and all contact with Danielle.
The Real Housewives of New Jersey star spoke to US last week making this telling quote, “I am not friends with Danielle.” But she doesn’t stop there, “She has never seen the baby, nor will I ever show her. I learned my family was right about her all along.”
Jacqueline has now gone into further detail about why she had to end the friendship, and you’ll be surprised it has nothing to do with her in-laws, Caroline and Dina Manzo.
“Danielle knows exactly why we are not friends anymore. She did something HORRIBLE behind the scenes to destroy Dina and my family. We have PROOF of it. I wish I could say what it is, but that’s Dina’s call. The other reasons were after seeing the show I got some threatening phone calls from Danielle. She didn’t like what I had to say about her on camera so she flipped out on me. I honestly didn’t think that I said anything that bad. Sometimes you get cut off from finishing a sentence when it comes to TV as well, and I had tried to explain that to her. I didn’t appreciate the way she spoke to me. She told me to stay away from her and her “real” friends. I still don’t know what she was talking about. I certainly haven’t spoke to any of her friends about anything because I don’t even know what I would have spoke about. I don’t even know her friends. The night before the reunion show she called my sister-in- law to try to turn her against me with lies! I didn’t appreciate that either. I have heard all over town that she is trashing me and plans to “bring me down,” whatever THAT means. It’s enough for me to know that I don’t need someone like that in my life that could turn on me so quick because they don’t like my opinions when asked about their lifestyle.”
That was very telling and I must say I can’t blame Jacqueline. I used to have some sympathy for Danielle because I felt the Manzo sisters were ganging up on her, but my opinion of her has since changed.
I truly believe she thrives on the drama, and is simply very delusional as well as pathological. She also seems to always be the victim in all of her personal conflicts.
She does seem like a toxic human being, plus what 46 year old mother in her right mind makes a sex tape with her 26 year old boyfriend? She overall seems like a very tragic human being, who thrives on attention no matter how negative or detrimental it is to others around her.
Jeremiah Riggs aka Big Rig, was the latest contestant to be eliminated from Daisy of Love. The MMA fighter discusses his elimination, his thoughts on Daisy’s reaction to his son, his missing teeth and his new girlfriend (Marcia from Rock of Love Bus & Charm School 3) in his new interview with VH1.
Below are excerpts from this interview -
It seemed like you were really upset after being eliminated.
Yeah, I was. I ain’t gonna lie to you. It sucked, you know? I don’t really know how to explain it. I guess when you know you’re the better person, don’t no one like to just necessarily lose. I sure as f*** don’t.
Was it just a matter of losing the game, or were you upset at all about not being able to get closer to Daisy?
For the time given and spent, yeah. What can you say when you got 20 other people and you’re all trying to get her attention? You only have so much time anyways and you have to make the best of it. I believe I did that by all means. It’s just, you know…she’s gonna do what she wants to do.
It did seem that you were really into her. You said you were falling in love with her.
I was. It was real and everything. She’s a cool girl. I liked her, just the presence of her and everything. Just a really good vibe. When you’re feeling good things, why not express the way you feel?
What did you think about her reaction to you giving her the picture of your son?
Not saying that it was a bad reaction, but she’s got to understand that I’m a package deal. And I do it the same with any other girl. I got to let them know that I come with more than just a bang.
The biggest question of the first season of The Real Housewives of New Jerseywas where is Dina’s husband? In a show that follows these women and their families, it raised a big question mark that Tommy Manzo made zero appearances on the show.
Dina has claimed that her husband decided he did not want to be on TV, which is strange considering the fact that he appeared on VH1′s My Big Fat Fabulous Wedding not too long ago. Their episode can be viewed below. The highlights on their episode included -
They invited over 600 people to their nuptials.
Dina admitted Tommy had cheated on her numerous times during their 5 year relationship.
Tommy saying he was marrying Dina because it was the right thing to do.
They supposedly ended up spending $1,150,000 on their wedding.
Dina admits Tommy was dating someone else for a year during their relationship, basically two timing her.
Interesting. A skinnier Caroline Manzo also makes appearances during this episode. Others have speculated Tommy did not want to do the show because he was unhappy with the way he came off on the VH1 show.
Tommy, 44, co-owns the Brownstone along with Caroline’s husband, Al Manzo.
We have been reporting the rumors circulating that Tommy and Dina are separated, and that the separation is allegedly his reason for not being on the show. A source alleged Tommy had moved into an apartment near the brownstone with a younger girlfriend.
More pictures of Tommy are below-
New Jersey Residents – Do you know the real deal with Dina and Tommy? Feel free to share in the comments.
The Real Housewives of New York star, Alex McCord has decided to weigh in and adviceJon and Kate Gosselin after a recently publicized divorce filing.
Alex McCord, 35, and husband of nearly 10 years, Simon van Kempen, say that the key to staying together as a family while starring on TV show is to ensure your relationship is top priority.
“Remember that you [and your husband] were there first,” McCord told PEOPLE at the I Heart Gen Art 15th Anniversary benefit in New York City on Wednesday. “Remember that part of what makes raising your children a successful operation is having a successful relationship. And if you are not happy, I … guarantee you will foist that off on your kids and they will pick up on it.”
McCord and van Kempen, who have two young boys Johan and Francois, aged 5 and 3 respectively also offered some words of advice for other reality TV couples.
“Obsessively communicate,” McCord says. “Tell each other everything — the good, the bad and the ugly. Today, even I [thought to myself], ‘You can either just tell him, or you can sit and let it fester’ — and that’s when you get into trouble. So just come out with it, whatever it is.”
In a final advice, “Look out for your marriage as much as you look out for your kids,” adds van Kempen.
The classiest dating show to ever hit your television is back for a 2nd season! VH1 has revealed the all new cast of Real Chance of Love 2 today. Real & Chance are ready for their 2nd quest at finding “true love,” that is until the 3rd season comes along of course.
The second season is set to premier on Monday, Aug. 3 at 9/8c on VH1. With names like Hot Wings, Blonde Baller, and Junk, something tells me this will be a great 2nd season.
The million dollar question on everyone’s mind is what cause Caroline Manzo to break down in tears during part 2 of The Real Housewives of New Jersey Reunion? Well Danielle claims the real reason is below in her new bravo blog -
“As for the end of the Reunion, when Caroline said such horrible things to me, I had no idea at the time what “disgraceful” acts she was referring to. I only found out later what she was talking about, from someone in her own family. I simply gave a phone number to her ex brother-in-law to contact proper people with questions that he had concerning something that was absolutely none of my business. I was asked to give this information to him. If I had to do it again, I would have declined and preferred not to get involved. But I think my minimal involvement did not justify Caroline’s behavior towards me.”
