It was the hometown visits for American Idol this week, which on the results show warrants a Simon and Garfunkel montage (loves!) as Joshua Ledet, Phil Phillips, and Jessica Sanchez head back to where their hearts are for a giant, stadium sized homecoming party. Ryan Seacrest reminds America about the deets of the next week’s final faceoff with his hands casually resting on the backs of Steven Tyler and Jennifer Lopez. Steven is doing his best Gollum/gargoyle statue impression while JLo looks awkward…probably because she’s not sure she’s going to continue with this gig. Randy Jackson is confident in his judging abilites, sporting a leather blazer.
After Ryan announces the performers for the evening will be the King’s daughter Lisa Marie Presley and everyone’s favorite Idol alum and eyeliner abusing Adam Lambert, the final three perform a Beatles song. Yawn. Bring on the sofa! As always, an idol fueled Ford commercial is highlighted, with a noticeably absent P Philly. Jessica explains she’s happy to make it this far, and regardless of her fate, she’s excited to find out the results. Phillip and Joshua echo her sentiments…and why shouldn’t they? History tells us that the runners-up usually do better than the winner anyway. Reuben Studdard knows what I’m talking about. J Hud, anyone?
I’m not sure if I am scared or excited about the return of VH1′s Love & Hip Hop. It’s no secret that many of the antics of the ladies on the show left me cringing with every recap, but there is going to be quite a shift in casting. I don’t know if that’s a good thing or a bad thing!
Anyone who watched last season knew of the discord between Chrissy Lampkin and producer Mona-Scott Young. Viewers wondered if a show without Chrissy, her now fiance Jim Jones, and everyone’s favorite, Jim’s mom (!!!), would even be a show at all. Who wants to watch a program void of a mumbling Jim and a “pyhsicotic bitch”? Not this gal. I love me some Mama Jones!
On DWTS, one of the stars, opera singer Katherine Jenkins, has been a fan favorite this season…which is phenomenal considering not a lot of people knew who she was when the contestants were announced. Admittedly, she’s adorable, endearing, and a heck of a dancer. However, when performing her second routine in the semi-finals, she made a mistake…or was she injured?
After her mishap, both she and partner Mark Ballas were tweeting–not about her misstep, but of the back injury that caused it. Katherine tweeted, “I’m with the Doctor, he says it was a reflectorical spasm in my lower back,” which was quickly followed by Mark telling fans, “Katherine hurt her back, I tried my best not let her fall at the end. Hope we still have ur votes.”
So, injury or cover-up for a mistake that could have cost them? Katherine is my frontrunner, and I don’t think she’s the type to not own her mistakes, so I think she has a back injury…and I hope she feels better soon!

Chaz Brown won first place last week, and while he has immunity, he is able to pick his fellow black teammates to travel with him in first class. I’m excited as some part of me thought the teams would stay the same throughout. Chaz chooses Cheven (Chef Kevin), Avery Pursell, Mrs. GarrettGary Walker, and Nookie Postal. So two of the red team are heading to Lyon in style. The black team castoffs aren’t too upset to not be on Chaz’s team. On the red team, Sai Pituk is upset that her Asian training won’t be helping out her team yet again.
You know it’s bad when a show sounds like a major train wreck before it even airs. Not surprisingly, that seems to be the case with the third season of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, thanks to Taylor Armstrong, queen of the psychotic meltdowns…as evidenced last season. Already there have been reports of her heavy drinking, even getting wasted at Kyle Richards’ daughter’s birthday. Also disturbing about her behavior at the toddler’s party? It occurred in front of Taylor’s young daughter Kennedy. Now there are new reports of Taylor’s disturbing antics being filmed on a recent spa weekend to Ojai, California.
A source tells RadarOnline.com, “Taylor was wasted from the moment she appeared in the morning until the moment she collapsed at night. It was a horrific sight to see. She totally lost control of her emotions and her temper. She is an absolute complete mess, but she refuses to acknowledge that she has a problem.”
On last evening’s Dance Moms: Miami, the insanity really took a turn. Susan’s antics threaten to ruin Jessi’s home at the studio, and Debi will turn on anyone to stop others from turning on her. Victor, Angel, and the kids (oh, and of course Kimmy’s mom Ani) are the only ones not riding Ozzy’s crazy train.
The dancers did an amazing job at last week’s competition, and while Victor and Angel are very proud, there is always room for improvement. After their most precious little duet, Lucas and Kimmy are in the first and second spots on the list, respectively. Victor touts Jessi’s solo as “phenomenal” but she’s third for getting a lower score than the two nine year olds. Susan is peeved. Her daughter is the best dancer at Stars! Sammy is fourth on the list for not standing out enough. Even though Hannah wins her age group, she’s last on the list because she cried before going on stage. Hannah believes that she just needs to work harder.
We were introduced to Sarah Roberts on last night’s 16 and Pregnant, a sixteen-year-old from Chickamauga, Georgia. She is super close to her mother, and she lives with her mom and two brothers. Sarah met her boyfriend Blake in the sixth grade, and they have been dating on and off for five years. She had aspired to go to college and study journalism, while Blake dreams of being a shrimp boat captain. Sarah’s mom Tina and Blake don’t get along, but of course she lets him move in once Sarah gets pregnant. He’s a high school dropout, and Sarah’s mom doesn’t like how disrespectful he is or how he treats her daughter. Blake doesn’t like following Tina’s rules, and Sarah wonders how long he will stick around in Chickamauga. Blake thinks he could make more money shrimping in South Georgia.
Sarah’s mom does her make-up every morning. Tina is concerned that once the baby is born the couple will take off to South Georgia. At a doctor’s appointment, Blake seems very uncomfortable. Sarah tells her midwife that she will be going to school online, while Blake mumbles something about getting his GED. Blake has promised to pick up a crib from Sarah’s aunt, but he’s busy…playing video games and hanging out with his friends. Tina warns Sarah that he’s only going to get worse once the baby is born. Blake confides in a friend that he just wants to have fun until the baby is born. The whole conversation has subtitles. Thank goodness I’m Southern. I have no problem understanding what they’re saying, which is awesome because it means I can keep typing instead of trying to decipher their backwoods twang. The ever classy Blake reveals that he is so sick of Sarah’s mother, he is sometimes just tempted to pay child support and be done with it.
This season of Basketball Wives has got to be almost over, right? I mean, I don’t know how much more I can take of these women. Just a forewarning, this post is more emotional than I tend to be, just because I was beyond disgusted at what I was watching. I used to really enjoy watching these women. Where did things go wrong??
Tami Roman is still going off on Kesha Nichols. Kesha is staying cool, while Tami continues to remind Kesha that she told Royce Reed and Suzie Ketcham she wanted to go off on her. Kesha walks away and tries to remain calm, as Tami confiscates her pocketbook and refuses to relinquish it until Kesha returns to put her in her place. Do you kiss your kids with that mouth, Tami? Tami seems to be mad that Kesha doesn’t know where she comes from, but it’s time to put that excuse to rest. Tami apparently doesn’t seem to care that Kesha comes from a background where people don’t b!tch slap one another and hold handbags hostage. I want to smack (not really, as I’d be stooping to their level) Shaunie O’Neal,Evelyn Lozada, and Suzie for not intervening. When Kesha walks away, the other women think that Kesha should have spoken her mind. Shaunie even laughs that Tami is really going to keep her bag and sunglasses. Tami, you are a grown woman, and you should be ashamed of your behavior. Sixth grade bully.
