On last night’s 16 and Pregnant, we are introduced to a couple who wasn’t a couple. The two had a few hook-ups before learning they were expecting. However, the pair managed to defy most odds (after an early-on freak out by mohawked dad) to become a loving, self-sufficient couple with a newborn.
Hope Harbert is from Lee’s Summit, Missouri where she lives with her mom and two younger siblings. She fancies herself a party girl who has just graduated from high school. She met Ben, who also enjoyed going out, and after hooking up a few times, Hope found out she was pregnant. She actually got pregnant the first time she ever had sex. When Hope told Ben about the impending baby, he said he wanted nothing to do with her or his child. Hope reveals to her mother she lost her virginity to Ben, and although they only had sex a couple times, they never used protection. Her mother is very disappointed, but she is supportive. After two months of no contact, Ben has a change of heart and invites Hope to come move in with him before the baby is born. She thinks that is the best idea for the new couple. Of course she does. When will these girls learn?
After chatting with her friends, Hope admits that she thinks Ben will be a good dad even if he’s not a good boyfriend. Her folks have never met Ben, and her mother is beyond perplexed that her daughter is in this situation having never had a boyfriend before. Ben isn’t quite ready to meet her fam, so he only comes by to visit when no one is home. Winner! Ben has gotten a new apartment, and he is willing to move in all the baby stuff. However, he’s not keen on moving in Hope’s belongings. Ben is quick to let her know that she’s welcome to spend the night whenever she wants. What a charmer. He also admits that he was frightened off from her when he found out she was a virgin who got pregnant after only having sex the first time. Perhaps he missed the day in sex ed when you learn that anytime you have sex you can get pregnant…you don’t have to practice for months before it can happen.
For those of you who thought the dramatic antics of a one Taylor Armstrong on RHOBH couldn’t get any worse, think again. Last season she really started her downward spiral, but it seems to be continuing as the ladies film the third installment of the hit Bravo show. Taylor’s drinking was out of control as she struggled with her marital problems with Russell, but now that he’s committed suicide, her issues seem to have escalated. Of course, in reality world, that means impromptu intervention!
A Bravo source tells Radaronline.com, “The entire cast will be filming together this week and the plan is for the ladies to confront Taylor about her growing dependence on alcohol. It will be the first time that the cast will be together since Portia’s birthday party when Taylor got obscenely drunk. It was very alarming and distressing for Kyle [Richards], Kim [Richards], and the other ladies to see. It struck a chord in particular with Kim who was recently released from rehab, and she is extremely concerned for Taylor, everyone is. The cameras will be rolling when the ladies express their concern for Taylor’s drinking, the latest incident with her getting drunk at a little girl’s birthday party was the last straw, especially because Taylor’s daughter, Kennedy was also at the party and saw her mother in that state.”
Welcome, y’all! It’s your daily dose of Kardashianasty! For those of you who actually expected Khloe Kardashian to shy away from the small screen after bowing out of Khloe and Lamar, think again. HollywoodLife.com is reporting that Khloe would like to try a different television genre. A family insider tells the site, “Khloe wants her own talk show. She had been working on different ideas for a show and Kris [Jenner] was the one who originally came up with the idea.” Wait, what? Pimpmomager Kris wants her daughter to be a talk show host? Well knock me over with a feather, I’m shocked!
On last night’s Basketball Wives, the women headed to Tahiti where all hell breaks lose and someone’s anger management backslides…big time. But first, a little daughter-daddy dramatics!
Royce, Royce, Royce. We resume with Royce Reed bawling to her father. She just wants to hear her father say he’s proud of her. Is that too much to ask? Can Royce please get a hug? Geez, her dad was just trying to give her some fatherly advice on how not to look like she jumps from man to man for attention. Yet here she is, begging her father for attention. Daddy issues, perhaps?
Last night’s Mob Wives seemed to be another calm episode, thank goodness. Most of the women were dealing with their jacka$$y exes, but there were no screaming matches, no altercations, and no drama. It was a bit weird, I’ll admit!
Drita D’Avanzo is playing with her new pup Lucky when she receives a call from soon-to-be-ex-husband Lee. She shares her rap video/bank robbing debut with Lee, and he’s excited for her. She drops the bomb that she wants to start dating. Drita is confused at how supportive he’s being, and it makes her remember why she married him in the first place. She’s thrilled the pair is getting along and can be friends, but she really wishes Lee had never cheated.
Ramona Rizzo and Karen Gravano head to a specialty grocery. Karen wants to get Ramona’s opinion about reconciling with Drita. Ramona is not at all on board. At. All. Karen is only considering this treaty to make Renee Graziano happy. Ramona warns that Drita will end up getting physical as she’s a “different breed.” Karen is quick to say that the second Drita gets violent, Karen will end up in jail for rearranging her face. Ahhh, mending fences…
When Teen Moms come to mind, usually there are a few (okay, one or two) that give us faith in the humanity of our nation’s youth, while the others are just famewhore train wrecks. This blog post is about Catelynn Lowell and her boyfriend Tyler Baltierra and Jenelle Evans. I’ll let you figure out who falls into which category…
While both Farrah Abraham and Maci Bookout have expressed their desire to remain in the public eye with spinoffs, Catelynn and Tyler remain relatively under the radar. Viewers have championed the pair who made the undoubtedly difficult choice to place their daughter up for adoption (because that never seems to happen on the MTV hit) while overcoming major family strife to make a better life together.
Is anything ever what it seems in Kardashialand? Who’s marrying whom? Which sister is knocked up? Which sister is divorcing? Which sister is forced to forgo college plans so she can bank roll her mother? Where did Rob go? Do they just bring him out of the basement when they need him? It’s a hurricane of uncertainty with the Kardashian Krew.
In recent weeks, all eyes have been on Klamar and the state of their union. The couple has decided not to continue with reality show, and in an effort to lay low (Kardashian style, of course) Khloe Kardashian was on the cover of People magazine discussing the pair’s marriage. Baby steps. The most quotable from that interview was Khloe relaying, “I like to think divorce is not an option.” Tabloids and blogs everywhere (cough, cough) are now jumping to dissect the phrase “I like to think” in her statement.
Last night’s Survivor was clearly ladies’ night, as Tarzan is the only man left.
We learn that Troyzan whispered “do it” to Kat as he was leaving. Kat is befuddled…does he think she’s going to go against her alliance? Well, someone’s going to have to do it! Alicia thinks that Christina’s ramblings during tribal council only show how wishy washy and weak she is. Alicia thinks Christina needs to stick around a while, but she is starting to feel threatened by the amount of power Sabrina seems to have garnered. Alicia sees herself as a puppet master, poisoning the other women against Sabrina.
