The Bachelorette’sJillian Harris finally did what everyone had been wanting for the past couple of weeks – Sent Wes Home! Jillian speaks out on the whole Wes issue in her new blog about the show. She admits she kept Wes for “way too long.” For some strange reason, she still doubts Wes actually had a girlfriend – sighs.
“So … Wes! I know I kept him for WAY too long. I FULLY admit this. Someone on here wrote the truest way to explain it — it’s like you’re watching a horror movie that you starred in … And all your friends are yelling at you, “He’s behind you! He’s behind you!” Ha. There are so many ways to explain my connection with Wes. I cringe to admit this, but I truly was blinded by many of Wes’s “good qualities” for the better half of his stay that I refused to see all the red flags (and there were a lot of them!).
I still don’t know if Wes had a girlfriend, but I do think Wes was there for his career. Along the way, we did build a friendship but his presence on the show was a disservice to both of us. It made me look like a fool and like I had bad judge of character, and it made him look like someone he is not. I guess this is what you lay out on the line when you sign up for something like this, right? Ultimately, you are all still entitled to your opinion, but I am a huge supporter of forgiveness and I hope you can give Wes a break and lay this one to rest.”
It’s good to see her admit her bad choice. I am however surprised she still doubts he had a girlfriend. Wes’s “girlfriend” Laurel Kagayspoke out last week defending Wes and claiming they were just friends.
Jake also spoke out on the issue and even said Wes and Laurel are still dating. I still choose to believe Jake on this one. Someone needs to tell Wes that he can pretty much kiss his country music career goodbye. No one is going so support a jerk. He has officially taken the crown of the biggest jerk title from Jason Mesnick.
Theybf is reporting that Monica Leon aka Danger from The Love of Ray J is now pregnant. Yes she’s really pregnant this time judging from the above photo that was taken this weekend in the Hamptons.
Her man and the assumable father of her unborn child looks to be her ex fiance, Gabriel Cannon. Gabriel is the younger brother of Nick Cannon. Congrats to Danger. I am however a bit sad we won’t be getting any For the Love of Danger dating show any time soon.
UPDATE – Danger has confirmed via her twitter that she is indeed pregnant.
A lot of VH1 fans are wondering if Bret Michaels is still with Rock of Love Bus winner – Taya Parker. Well the answer seems to depend on who you ask. Bret said in a recent interview with amNewYork that he is seeing Taya in a “fun way” and says he is still dating other women. The full quote is below -
‘It should be called Rock of Dating,’ he said at the Lipton Gift Lounge backstage at the Tony Awards…Michaels still sees recent winner Taya Parker, but only in a ‘fun’ way — and goes out with other ladies, too.
Bret also says he might be open to doing a 4th season of Rock of Love. Taya however says she and Bret are in a relationship and are both happy. She has herself listed as being in a relationship on her myspace. She also blogged about her relationship with Bret saying -
Bret and I are doing great! We have been taking a much needed break from the spotlight and cameras to get to know each other. We are having a blast! He’s adorable to cuddle and watch movies with… he just makes me laugh and laugh! You should see him watching “Role Models!” It’s honestly the most precious display of boyish behavior… I’m definitely soooo addicted to his smile! We will see each other again soon… I am counting down the days.
Interesting, something tells me Rock of Love 4 will be in the works soon.
Peopleis also reporting that Bret’s tour bus suffered an accident recently, but fortunately no injuries were reported. Bret and his crew were “released from the scene” after an investigation.
VH1 has made it rather obvious they are willing to give a reality show to pretty much anyone. The latest anyone is now NFL player – Terrell Owens. The T.O. Show is the title and it is set to premier on July 20th. Above is a trailer that promises us a glimpse into the life of TO. VH1 teases, “See T.O. get sacked, get busy, get picked up again and get serious!”
I was under the impression this was going to be a dating show, similar to For the Love of Ray J. I think I might have to pass on this VH1 show.
American Idol judge Kara DioGuardi weds contractor boyfriend, Mike McCuddy after dating for a year and a half in Prospect Harbor, Maine, according to Usmagazine.com. McCuddy proposed on Dec. 8, 2008 on DioGuardi’s 38th birthday.
The ceremony was attended by very close friends and family members. There were no idol judges present. “They are absolutely in love with each other,” Pastor Nurse tells Us. “When I told him he could kiss the bride, everybody cheered. It was a very close, small family-type service.”
The newly married AI judge will return for season nine of American idol with Simon Cowell, Paula Abdul, Randy Jackson and Ryan Seacrest later this summer.
Among DioGuardi’s hits have been “I Do Not Hook Up,” with Kelly Clarkson; “Ain’t No Other Man,” with Christina Aguilera; and “Pieces of Me,” with Ashlee Simspon-Wentz. DioGuardi, a talented songwriter is expected to work with Rascal Flatts and Little Big Town in August.
Despite initiating divorce proceedings, Jon and Kate Gosselin’s focus remains on the children as it should be. The whole family reunited on Saturday to celebrate the July 4th holiday at their Wernersville, PA home- the day was filled with lots of food and a game of volleyball. Both Jon and Kate picked blueberries so Kate could bake a cake while Jon was seen lighting a sparkler with the kids.
The day’s activities were not filmed due to the production of the show being on hold until August, according to TLC.
32 years old Jon intends to begin a new chapter in his life following the finalization of the divorce. Kate filed for divorce on June 22nd after 10 years of marriage stating the marriage as “irretrievably broken.” She plans to negotiate a fair settlement with Jon.
“While I know it will be hard for them,” said Kate of the effect of the separation on their children, “it will be the best and most peaceful for them.”
