Part 1 of the Real Housewives of NYC’s reunion show aired last night with some major cattiness amongst the ladies. Part 2 will be airing on Thursday, and below is recap of my thoughts on the show.

My favorite part of the Reunion showAlex rightfully calling Bethenny out on some of her mean comments. I like Bethenny but she seems to have gotten a rather enlarged head lately. Not sure why she felt the need to “flatter” Alex by asking her for a favor in designing her logo. Alex is a professional who was getting paid good money by Victoria’s Secret to work for them.

Least favorite part of the showJill’s extreme cattiness. Love Jill as well but she seemed to find an interesting way to insert herself into every question/argument that took place on the reunion. She seemed to have been in some kind of running for the meanest housewife. Come to think of it, most of these women are just downright mean to each other. Not sure how they can consider each other “friends.”

Funniest part of the showKelly who claims to be a Columbia graduate, strange use of the English language, “I’ve built this name since I’m a kid.” The second funniest part of the show also goes to Kelly for her condescending remarks to Bethenny, you know the “you look adorable,” or the “you’re awesome!,” as if to say Bethenny needs those comments to build up her self esteem or something.

A summary of what happened on the show is below -

1) Jill talks about her boob reduction, she went from being a 32G to a 32DD.

2) Bethenny denies she is currently dating A-rod, admits to having a special man in her life.

3) Bethenny also denies having a boob job, instead admitting to having a breast lift. (Really? I always thought she had a boob job.)

4) LuAnn confirms the stories that her husband of 16 years, the Count did dump her by email for an Ethiopian woman, who is allegedly a princess according to stories leaked by the Count.

5) Kelly talked in circles about her alleged assault incident, never answering Bethenny’s question of why we never saw this guy on the show.

6) Ramona was busted by Jill about lying about her skin care line. Ramona claims she’s been working on it for 1.5 years, Jill felt the overwhelming need to accuse her of lying.

7) Alex rightfully calls out Bethenny on her snarky/catty remarks she makes behind the backs of her castmates.

8) Kelly doesn’t believe in crying ever.

Looking forward to Part 2 of the Reunion!

new_jersey_housewives

Bravo’s The Real Housewives of New Jersey premiered last night and boy is this bound to be an interesting series. What were your thoughts on the show’s premier?

Sisters, Caroline Manzo and Dina Manzo gave an interview to People talking about their experience in doing the show. Below are some excerpts from this interview -

Do you represent typical New Jersey housewives?
Caroline: That’s kind of a loaded question. Do I think we depict an Italian American family? Yes, I do. Do I think I depict a housewife? I most certainly am. There are some aspects to my personality that may be stronger than most, but the fact remains that I wake up every morning and I make the beds and I go food shopping and I let the dogs out and I do the laundry and I am somebody’s wife and somebody’s mother.
Dina: When I think of New Jersey, I think of moms who are passionate about their families. We definitely represent that. We’re not really looking to be in the social scene as much as some of the other [casts] in the franchise. Our show is more authentic because some of those women were kind of forced to hang out with each other, whereas for us, we’d all be out to dinner together anyway — with the exception of a couple. We’re just regular people. We’re not walking a red carpet every night.

Do family dynamics make the drama more intense?
Caroline: With any family — and it’s not only Italian families — there is history. With history comes passion. When there are fights, we fight big. And when we forgive and we love, we love big and we forgive big. That’s what family is. I think this country needs that right now.

Dina, How have your teenage daughter Alexia’s schoolmates reacted?
Dina: I was a little bit worried about putting her out there, but she’s gotten nothing but positive [feedback]. She just made captain of the track team. She was always popular but now kids are coming out of the woodwork. Eighth graders who are older than her want to be her friend. So she’s kind of liking the limelight a little bit too. Let’s just hope it doesn’t go to her head.

Are you prepared for any potential backlash?
Caroline: There is no preparing for it. But I’m a big girl. I’ve taught my children to accept that not everybody is going to love you. We make mistakes and we do things that perhaps at times will embarrass us, but that’s what makes us human. I am proud of who I am. And I am so proud of my children.
Dina: We’re very confident that we’re good people. I can put my head on my pillow every night knowing that I give back to my community and I’m a great mother and a great sister, so they can say whatever they want.

paulina-porzikova

Another day, another judge gets the boot from America’s Next Top Model. The latest judge to get fired is Paulina Porizkova. Paulina confirmed on Tuesday’s Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson that she will no longer be on the show, “Listen, do you know why I am in Los Angeles … because I am looking for a job.  I was fired by America’s Next Top Model on my birthday [April 9].”

The 44 year old ex model claims she got fired over the phone, “The reason I was told I was fired was because, it seemed that America’s Next Top Model has gotten too fat and they needed to cut some fat, and the fat was me,” she says.

The CW also confirmed she is no longer with the show.

ty_murray

Cowboy Ty Murray is the latest star to get the boot from Dancing With The Stars the week before the finale. Ty is however happy to have simply made it this far, saying, “I can’t tell you how happy I am,” Murray said laughing after the show. “I don’t have to learn any more dances.”

Ty goes on to make it clear that he has no regrets in having done the show, “The whole reason I did this show is because it was nice for cowboys to be represented in something so pop culture, and this show did in spades,” Murray said. “For me to be able to do this is a fantastic opportunity. You don’t realize how big something like this is until you’re on a show that 25 million people watch.”

And how does Ty’s rookie dancing partner, Chelsie Hightower, 19 feel about all of this? “I don’t know that I expected us to do this well and I couldn’t be happier,” Hightower added. “I feel great about the run we had and I feel great about leaving right now. It was a great season.”

The three remaining stars including  — actor Gilles Marini, Bachelor star Melissa Rycroft and Olympic gymnast Shawn Johnson — will compete for the season eight mirror-ball trophy next week!

Jon & Kate Plus 8′s dad Jon Gosselin isn’t the only one battling cheating allegations. We began hearing whispers that his wife Kate has also been having her share of fun with her trainer and bodyguard. Kate is now denying reports that she has been having a more-than-platonic relationship with Steve Neild, a bodyguard who frequently travels with her and her family to People.

“Already the allegations they’re making about me are disgusting, unthinkable, unfathomable, and I am horrified.” Kate tells People. “These are people who absolutely love us and want to see us through to the end,” Kate says of Neild and his family. “Of course, both of them travel with us at times, and we’ve spent holidays together, because, in this situation, your circle grows smaller and smaller, and it’s very natural to become friends with your manager, your publicist, your security team … they’re the only people you have left. And now they’re coming under fire.”

Only time will tell what is really going on with these two. There are also rumors they might have an understanding or an open marriage.

Joan Rivers

Joan Rivers

Following an explosive season, Joan Rivers has been named the celebrity apprentice. The final competition was between Annie Duke & Joan Rivers. Both contestants had to choose their teammates. Annie’s team consisted of Dennis Rodman, Tom Green and Brande Roderick while Joan chose Clint Black, Melissa Rivers & Herschel Walker. This season was of the most exciting yet challenging for the contestants. The final goal was to create a charity auction in collaboration with Kodak & Cirque du Soliel. Even though Annie’s team made the most money, Joan’s team was successful in inviting celebrities to attend the event consequently making Joan the next apprentice.

The best part of the show is being able to raise money for the charities. So in my opinion the show was definitely a success. Not to worry, the apprentice will return for its third season. If you missed any of the drama you can visit the NBC website to watch the videos.

bethenny-frankel-boyfriend

The Real Housewives of New York’s Bethenny Frankel has a new man in her life, and is going public with it. Bethenny is pictured above with her new boyfriend who according to this NY Times article is named Jason Hoppy.

Guess those A-rod rumors were simply rumors. Bethenny talked about Jason to the NYTimes, “My friends call him ‘Tenjune’ — that’s his name,” Ms. Frankel said, referring to the nightclub in the meatpacking district where the couple met. Mr. Hoppy, who says he works in real estate, saw Ms. Frankel getting attention from photographers, he said, and walked up and said something unprintable. She liked that.

Hoping this will be a lasting relationship for Miss Bethenny.

Jon and Kate Gosselin arrive together to the Pennsylvania Womens Show on May 2, 2009

Despite US Magazine confirming that Jon Gosselin cheated on his wife Kate by having a 3 month affair with grade school teacher, Deanna Hummel, Jon has come out denying all cheating allegations.

Jon released a statement to People saying, “These allegations are false and just plain hurtful.  As I adjust to the attention that comes from being in the public eye, I need to be more careful and aware of who I am associating with and where I am spending my time. But the bottom line is, I did not cheat on Kate. I am sorry for putting my family in this awkward position, given some poor decisions and bad judgments I’ve made recently.”

The “other” woman involved in this scandal, Deanna Hummel, also denies the allegations leveled against her by her own brother who claims she had an affair with Jon. Deanna said, “My brother is making this all up,” she says. “I can’t even stomach the lies he’s saying about me.”

Kate opened up for the first time on the Rachael Ray Show’s taping yesterday about how she’s dealing with this entire scandal, “It’s one of those things that we’re just handling privately.  We’re just taking it one step at a time and I’m trying to walk through it.” The episode will air on Tuesday.

Kate also admitted to Entertainment Weekly that Jon’s behavior has caused some problems for the couple, “Jon’s poor judgment and irresponsible behavior has also without a doubt caused some added tension and stress between the two of us.”

Deanna’s brother, Jason Hummell, continues to stand by his story saying he has no reason to lie. Jason states, “I noticed that in both her and Jon’s recent comments, that neither of them addresses the fact that he was sleeping over at our house and was videotaped leaving our house at 7:30 in the morning.”
