Southern Belles: Louisville is arguably the best reality show you are not watching. It is a new reality show on Soapnet featuring 5 young women in their 20s and 30s as they go through their lives. It has been described by some as a reality show version of Sex and The City.

I started watching this show by chance a few weeks back and I must say I AM HOOKED! It reminds me a lot of the Real Housewives series, with younger women ofcourse. Imagine the lives of the Bravo housewives 10 – 20 years ago, and you pretty much have this show.

It airs Thursday nights at 10/9c on Soapnet. Below is more information about each cast member -

In a 30 second promo video on TLC, Jon and Kate Gosselin plan to make an announcement on the show that will air next week.

“Recently we’ve made some life-changing decisions,” Kate says in a voice over on a new TLC promo for a one-hour Jon & Kate Plus 8 episode to air Monday. “Decisions that will affect every member of our family…ones that we hope will bring each of us some peace.”

Phrases like “A relationship at a crossroads” and “Where do they go from here?” also flash across the screen during the promo.

Several magazines including Us Weekly have chronicled the couple’s collapsing marriage as Jon had an affair with 23-year-old Deanna Hummel, and Kate may have had an “inseparable” relationship with her bodyguard, Steve Neild.

Their 10 year wedding anniversary was spent apart.

Kate and Jon need to get their life together and stop the show so they can focus on what’s best for the family. They have 8 kids to raise. What do you all think? Should they stay together for the kids? Should the show be cancelled?

Steve-Zalewski-danielle-staub

When it rains, it pours. Just when we thought the worst was over for Danielle Staub, comes news that her ex boyfriend is trying to sell a sex tape, and expicit photos of her. The ex is Steve Zalewski, the 26 year old boytoy that appeared on The Real Housewives of New Jersey with her. You know, the balding one that looked older than Danielle.

In an exclusive interview with Star, Steve, now 27, says his 46-year-old ex was sex-crazed. “Not only does she want to have sex all the time, but she loves the thrill of doing it in public places, where she might get caught,” he says.

“She wanted to make love in restaurant bathrooms basically every time we went out — she’d get all excited and say, ‘The people can hear you doing it outside!’”

Steve alleges the two had a bad breakup, due in part to her always borrowing money from him. “She tries to look affluent,” he says. “But sometimes she couldn’t pay the household bills or buy food. Even then, she’d want to borrow 20 grand from me to buy jewelry!”

Now Steve is considering recouping some money by selling steamy naked videos of Danielle! “I’m definitely weighing my options as far as selling them and getting them out there. She cost me so much money, why shouldn’t I make a few dollars?”

What a sleaze bag, Danielle has got to make better choices about the men she dates, and brings into her daughters’ lives. There’s just something very tragic and sad about this woman. She seems to be trying REALLY hard to be Samantha from Sex and The City, not being able to separate fiction from reality.

The only good thing she seems to have going for her are her two daughters, who both seem to have very good head on their shoulders.

melissa-rycroft-b_5DWTS alum, Melissa Rycroft has just landed a new job with ABC’s Good Morning America as a special contributor, reports Usmagazine.

Rycroft, a 26-year-old sales representative and former Dallas cowboy’s cheerleader — will appear on the morning show about eight times during the summer, “bringing lighthearted, uplifting and fun stories to GMA,” says a source.

Remember, Rycroft was famously dumped by Jason Mesnick on ABC’s The Bachelor finale this past spring. She danced her way as one of the finalist on ABC’s Dancing with the Stars.

After the show ended, she told Us she didn’t have any plans.

“I’m not going to pursue anything right now,” she told Us, “but if things come my way I will look into them. Never say never!”

Following her outstanding performance on DWTS, we knew we haven’t seen or heard the last of Melissa.

manzo-staub

The drama of the Real Housewives of New Jersey continues even though the first season has “ended.”  Dina Manzo spoke to US about the infamous book drama, claiming she had no intention of talking about the book on the show. Umm right Dina. The infamous book is the “Cop Without A Badge” book written by Danielle’s ex husband, Kevin Maher.

Dina says, “I would like to make it perfectly clear that we did not research the book, as my sister [Caroline Manzo] has said,” she continued. “It was given to us, and we didn’t even want it as a storyline on the show at all. We felt it was a little too serious to be part of a lighthearted reality show.”

“But Danielle chose to put it on the show for whatever reasons, and we need to respect that,” continues Dina. “It’s a book about her, and we did not research, nor did we spread it around. It was all Danielle’s doing.”

Teresa adds, “Watch the episode. Danielle brought [the book] to the show, not us.”

Not sure if I believe any word that comes out of Dina’s mouth at this point, especially after last night’s episode. She continues to deny spreading the book around town.

stephanie-pratt-us-cover

The Hills star, Stephanie Pratt, talks to Us Weekly magazine this week about hating her body and her terrifying secret struggle with bulimia.

Stephanie opens up about her eating disorder for the first time, saying it was sparked by the pressure of appearing alongside her super-thin friends on the hit MTV reality show. I’m guessing the “super thin” friends would have to include Lauren Conrad, Audrina Patridge, Heidi Pratt, and pretty much every female that ever appeared on The Hills.

Stephanie, who is described as being 5-foot-7 also reveals to US that she began bingeing and purging after watching a scene she shot with Lauren Conrad in 2007 after first joining the cast: “I was horrified. I remember saying, ‘I can’t believe how huge I look walking over to Lauren.’”

The cover story also teases about how Stephanie once attempted suicide. Hmm, will be reserving my personal comments on this one.

the_real_housewives_of_new_jersey

The finale of Bravo’s The Real Housewives of New Jersey just finished airing, in what is arguably the most dramatic episode ever of The Real Housewives franchise.

Thoughts on this episode -

1) I was very impressed with Caroline trying to make some peace, and giving Danielle a chance to speak her mind.

2) Danielle, oh Danielle, had absolutely no business bringing that book to the dinner table. Just when you start to feel sorry for her, she pulls this stunt. It was good to see her attempt to stand up for herself, but she chose the wrong place and time.

3) Very surprised to see Jacqueline stand up to Dina, and defend Danielle. I choose to believe Jacqueline on this one. Dina comes across as the lying type. I believe Caroline was lying to protect her little sister.

4) Teresa was way out of line for the table flipping. Very unnecessary and just way over the top.

5) It was great seeing Jacqueline’s husband and brother to Caroline & Dina, Chris, speaking some sense at the end. He said it best when he said – “You’re all acting like a bunch of fools.”

6) With that said, I’m ready for season two. Jacqueline continues to remain my favorite. Caroline impressed me with this finale.

WHAT ARE YOUR THOUGHTS ON THIS FINALE?

idol_02-judges-wall_0045_1 It seems all four American Idol judges will be returning for season 9 after all. According to RadarOnline.com, Simon Cowell, Randy Jackson, Paula Abdul and Kara DioGuardi will be returning to the next season of American Idol despite initial rumors surrounding the show.

Since Abdul’s contract was up, there were speculations of her not returning to the show and that Kara may not return since she only signed a one year contract. Having four judges seemed to be problematic for the live show because it slowed down the pacing says Abdul and Cowell.

Timing issues will be addressed on the next season. At the moment, Abdul and Dioguardi are still in negotiations though sources believe the contracts will be finalized in a few weeks. Sources also believe a formal announcement will be made in a few weeks.
