And now the real reasons come out regarding exiting American Idol judges. While Steven Tyler allegedly wasn’t asked back for next season, he’s not at all upset. In fact, Steven calls the show not his “cup of tea.”
Not that I’m surprised, but Steven has said that the show was basically just a paycheck that held him over while negotiating through the drama his Aerosmith band mates. Who knew American Idol could serve as just an interim distraction while he got his band back together?!
Not only is E! correspondent Giuliana Rancic expecting a baby with husband Bill Rancic via gestational surrogate, she’s also got an upcoming series on NBC called Ready for Love which she’ll co-host with Bill. What more could a woman want? How about Kris Jenner as a bestie? Umm….
It turns out that the two ladies are not just part of the E! Network together (or, let’s face it, the Kardashian Network), they are also really close friends. Who knew?
So the big question is, who will round out the judges’ panel? While rumors run rampant, I can say that there will likely be two seats filled. Why, you ask? It appears that longtime Idol fixture and judge Randy Jackson will be transitioning into a mentor role. He certainly has the credentials, and the contestants would surely benefit from his knowledge.
Does Jef Holm have a twin brother? I can’t help but think he really is a genuinely great person. After winning BacheloretteEmily Maynard’s heart, the happy couple is now in Ghana checking on two water wells built by Jef’s charity People Water. The newly engaged couple were joined by the charity’s co-founder Cody Barker and Creative Director Bronson Christensen.
The charity markets purified water to stores like Whole Foods, and it donates the same amount of water sold to those in need across the world. Swoon!
Jennifer Del Rio from 16 and Pregnant has fled her home state of Florida with her twins to get away from her children’s father. You may recall this happy couple from their episode when her then boyfriend Joshua Smith left her on the side of the road before speeding off with his children in the back seat. He’s a classy guy.
The now eighteen-year-old mother is now with her kids in Illinois, citing her ex’s abusive ways as her reasoning for getting the heck out of dodge. Both were arrested (at separate times) in 2011 alleging battery against the other, a claim Jennifer says is totally false.
Upon being alerted by a friend, Tami learned on Friday that both her e-mail and Twitter accounts have been hacked. Given that she has over 600,000 followers on Twitter, I’d say that’s a pretty big deal! The hacker wasn’t shy either…going by the name Clan Vv3, the hacker proudly took control of Ms. Roman’s twitter page.
Mimi wears a fabulous dress to visit K. Michelle in the studio. She reveals to K. Michelle that she dumped Stevie’s belongings in his friend’s driveway, and she wants the pair to get counseling. K. Michelle wants to know if Mimi hopes that counseling will rekindle the couple’s relationship or just allow them to co-parent. Mimi explains that she just wants counseling so the couple can be in the same room together. Something tells me she’s talking tougher than she actually feels. K. Michelle shares her new song with Mimi that was inspired by Mimi’s struggles. Wow, it’s quite the literal interpretation of Mimi’s issues. I’m a tad worried that Mimi will be offended, but she loves the rendition.
It was vacation time on last night’s Big Ang. For Ang, that means packing up her custom made bikinis and heading to Florida to party with her friends and “spend all the money.”
Ang invites Lil Jen and Linda over for breakfast and mimosas to plan their big to-do. Ang reveals that it’s tradition to get drunk the day before vacation so the plane ride won’t be as bad…don’t worry, they plan to get drunk on the plane as well. Later (but hopefully filmed earlier), Big Ang goes to get filler put in her face so she’ll be looking over the top for her trip to Florida. She isn’t thrilled when her dermatologist reminds her to be careful in the sun, and she’s also disappointed that she can’t come to get filler more frequently. Ang says she likes her plastic surgery regardless of whether she can afford it.
