Justin Guarini, runner-up to Kelly Clarkson in the first season of American Idol, is getting married this weekend.
The 30-year-old singer will tie the knot with fiancee, Reina Capodici this Saturday on a private estate along the Delaware River near both their families’ homes in Pennsylvania, Usmagazine.com has learned.
Though Justin and Reina dated for a few years, they’ve known each other since they were teens. Justin will become a stepfather to Reina’s 4-year-old daughter Lola, from a previous relationship.
A female minister from the Universal Church will preside over the ceremony and the couple intend to recite vows they’ve written themselves.
Last weekend, Justin covered the Emmy Awards for the TV Guide Channel. He also plans to return to the studio to record his third CD.
The photo on the right is of Big Poppa aka Lee Najjarand his wife, who is ironically also named Kim, and strangely enough looks a lot like Kim Zolciak. Lee is an extremely wealthy real estate developer in Atlanta.
This news is interesting considering the fact that Kim confirmed she and Big Poppa were still together just a week ago during her appearance of Bravo’s “Watch What Happens.” She even went as far as to reveal that she and Big Poppa had been intimate a week earlier.
The habitual liar Atlanta housewife wrote on her twitter page — “There is NO more Big Poppa and Kim FYI. The show was filmed months ago things have changed..So happy.” She has however spent the past few months sporting an “engagement” ring she claimed was a gift from Big Poppa. Not exactly sure how one can be engaged to a still married man, but evidently anything goes in Kim’s world.
Below is a photo of Kim and Big Poppa taken while the duo vacationed –
The show’s producer, Mike Fleiss, had previously confirmed the next Bachelor would be one of the contestants from Jillian Harris‘s recent Bachelorette season, even narrowing the choices down to three men. “When the new season of The Bachelor premieres, look for Reid, Kiptyn or Jake to be handing out the red roses,” said Fleiss.
There are however rumblings that the new Bachelor could be a new contestant all together. Our previous polls showed a preference for Reid as the next Bachelor.
The new season of “The Bachelor” will premiere in early 2010; with all signs pointing to Monday, Jan. 4, though the actual premier date has yet to be confirmed.
The 16 contestants on Dancing With The Stars faced a double elimination during Wednesday’s show. The two couples with the lowest scores were automatically eliminated.
Singer Macy Gray and George Hamilton’s son, Ashley, were the first pair of contestants voted off this season of Dancing With The Stars.
“Ballroom isn’t my calling exactly,” Gray, a 42-year-old Grammy-winner, said. “But I learned a little bit.”
She later thanked everyone on her Twitter account: “Thank you to everybody who voted for us. Specially those who voted a buncha times, like my ma. Thank you thank you.”
Ashley, whose Monday’s foxtrot with sexy pro-dancer Edyta Sliwinska failed to inspire voters, was also gracious in defeat.
“It’s been a blast,” the 34-year-old said after his ouster. “I’ve had a great partner and it was a great experience.”
For more Dancing with the Stars, tune in to ABC on Mondays at 8/7c and Tuesdays at 9/8c.
UPDATE: Radaronline is reporting that Macy Gray blew off her Wednesday night appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live following her elimination because she was too upset. This seems to coincide with previous reports that said Macy Gray was being a ‘diva’ during rehearsals, and was very difficult to work with.
It’s deja vu all over again as the Real Housewives of Atlanta’sKim Zolciak and her publicist/manager Jonathan Jaxsonare once again at odds, and Jonathan has once again decided to publicly bash his former client. It’s becoming more obvious these two have a“Love/Hate relationship.”
Jonathan went on Atlanta’s airwaves to air his grievances with the Bravo reality show star. On the air, he announced his resignation as Kim’s manager and publicist because “she’s a habitual liar.” According to Jonathan, Kim lied about her past as a stripper.
Jonathan previously dished on Kim back in July, when he revealed sordid details about her stripper past and dealings with the still legally married ‘Big Poppa.’
He claims that Kim spent about 3 months “making a lot of money” as a stripper at Atlanta’s top gentleman’s establishment, The Cheetah Club. And her stage name was “Barbi.”
“She didn’t do it for long, but was very popular among the crowd,” he continues.
Kim’s reps have denied such claims but admit that she worked “as a cocktail waitress.” Kim claims she knows the leak of this false story and is denying it: “I’ve never stripped,” she said. “[My former rep] is a loose cannon spreading lies. I am not affiliated with him whatsoever.”
NeNe Leakes on the other hand, proudly admitted that she danced for money to earn a living for her and her children.
