It seems that there is a lot going on behind the scenes of NBC’s answer to Project Runway. First off? Host and supermodel Elle MacPherson won’t be returning. Gearlive.com reports that Elle is calling it quits for season two. She says, “I have been involved with Fashion Star from the beginning, and am very proud to see it come to life, not only in America but globally. The show is in great hands, and although I will not be hosting this season, I will still be very involved [and] will be reviewing the format for the upcoming season.”
That’s code for “artistic differences” isn’t it? Answer me, Austin Scarlett! Not only will Elle be hanging up her hosting cap, but sponsor and affordable fashion house H&M is also bidding adieu to the series. Reportedly sticking around? Hosts Nicole Richie, John Varvatos, and new mom Jessica Simpson.
WILL YOU WATCH FASHION STAR WITHOUT ELLE? WHERE YOU WATCHING BEFOREHAND?
Kris Kardashian Jenner’s dynasty is as it should be. Daughter Khloe and her husband Lamar Odom are headed back to la-la land. Lamar, who was playing for the Lakers when his whirlwind romance with the reality star began, has been traded to the Clippers, the team he first played for in the NBA. HollywoodLife.com is reporting that Lamar will be make $8.2 million this year alone!
He and Khloe are likely thrilled as well to be moving back to Los Angeles after living in Dallas where Lamar briefly played for the Mavericks. However, Lamar may be forced to choose between basketball and reality stardom. A source tells the same site that the Clippers “want nothing to do with the circus that comes along with everything Kardashian. They want Lamar to come in without any baggage or outside distractions. … They are giving Lamar a huge chance and want nothing to ruin that.”
Last night’s Mob Wives Chicago solidified my theory of VH1 shows. From here on out, we’ll have a violent show, then a lovey-dovey episode, then more hair-pulling smack downs. Such is life, right y’all?
Renee Fecarotta Russo is meeting Nora Schweihs and her friend Julie for lunch. Renee isn’t chomping at the bit to hang with Nora, but she’s willing to put on a happy face since Julie is in town. Nora is clearly still miffed about Renee flaking out early at her father’s memorial luncheon. Nora goes into a diatribe about what a loyal friend Julie has been to her. Renee wishes that Nora would stop being so passive aggressive and calls Nora a “moron.” Nora reveals that she’s angry at Renee for being late to brunch, and Renee comes at her with guns blazing. Renee loves to rock a fedora, doesn’t she? She can’t believe that Nora is keeping a tally on who was there for what. The conversation–and the lunch–is donezo.
What don’t those Kardashians do? They famewhore, they have babies, they say their vows for millions of dollars. Thankfully today’s Kardashian story is actually about their half-sisters, the Jenners.
I really, truly do like to think that Kylie Jenner and Kendall Jennerare placed in this reality world due to default because of the woman who birthed them. I honestly think both of these girls have great heads on their shoulders, despite being raised in the spotlight. If nothing else their upbringing has taught them two things–how to be business savvy and how to avoid the pitfalls of their older sisters. Why am I writing this diatribe? Simple really…because Kendall and Kylie are writing too! In fact, the teen sisters are penning a sci-fi fantasy novel!
So apparently the trip to Las Vegas so Brandi Glanville could show off her pole skills wasn’t all fun and stripper games for the ladies of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills! I’m shocked given this laid back group of ladies who try their best to remain drama-free. ;) As we recently reported, most of the ladies accompanied Brandi to Vegas so she could learn more about a bachelorette party hosting gig. However, it seems the trip wasn’t all giggles and pillow fights and dollar bill-laced g-strings. A source dishes to RadarOnline.com about what really went down on the trip to Sin City.
The insider reveals, “The ladies were bickering and going at each other’s throats from the moment they left Los Angeles and didn’t stop until their private jet brought them back home. Brandi appeared to be under the influence of alcohol the entire time and was acting pretty outrageously. There is a lot of bad blood right now among everyone, and it all came out during the trip. Brandi has gone after Adrienne [Maloof] with a vengeance this season because Brandi is now really chummy with Lisa [Vanderpump], and Adrienne and Lisa just don’t get along.” But they still love cooking whole chickens together, right?
Amber Portwood just can’t catch a break. Not only is the Teen Mom star serving time in prison, she’s about to undergo an examination of her “medical, psychological, mental, and emotional health” which could last several weeks. HollywoodLife.com is reporting that during that time, Amber will not be allowed to have any visitors…and that includes four-year-old daughter Leah.
Douglas S. Garrison, the Chief Communications Officer of the Indiana Department of Corrections, tells the site, “During this diagnostic process time, Amber is not allowed any visitors, including her baby daughter. However, she is allowed to make out-going phone calls.”
The creators of Pawn Stars and American Restoration have been shooting a series that follows several Las Vegas housewives, but don’t expect a Bravo-esque housewives show.
The show Vegas Moms has been filming for quite a while in Las Vegas, and it stars Amanda Kouretas, April Swartz (Mrs. Nevada 2009), Francine Sanchez (Mrs. Las Vegas 2011), Shannon Love, Carey Kennedy, and Mickey Norton. Las Vegas Weekly reports, “It is ultra sexy and fun. But they are still moms and homemakers. Yes, there’s crazy stuff and there’s drama, and they live amazing lives. The six of them have a long history together as friends, and their kids all play and know each other.”
