Oh, Jersey Shore, how I love you…let me count the ways. I love you when you’re camping, when you incite food fights, and when you bring home grenades. I love you when you wear furry Ewok boots and need to blur out your private area because you forgot to put on underwear. I love it all.
Mike failed to execute his master plan on the last episode, so he takes an opportunity to take Jionni aside. He tells Snooki’s boyfriend that Snooks has totally seen the Sitch’s P while Ryder was hooking up with the Helium. Mike hopes that Jionni can respect his admission, man-to-man. Jionni shakes Mike’s hand and then crawls back in bed with Snooki to relay the Situation’s most recent situation. Snooks looks worried in the night vision cam, but seem legitimately concerned when the producers switch to full-on regular lighting. Jionni asks Nicole if Mike is being honest, but he continues to spoon Snooki as she laughingly declares Mike a liar.

The Basketball Wives (are any of them still wives?) are quick to defend the most recent episode. The women, who have been on the show since its inception, still seem to take great pleasure in passive aggressively taking down the new blood. Case in point? Kenya.
Oh, Kenya Bell. Kenya, Kenya, Kenya. She’s had a tough time as a newbie integrating with her fellow cast mates. If they aren’t blatantly mocking her YouTube videos, they are bashing on the disorganized way in which she approaches her budding music career, or talking smack about her weave. Can’t a girl catch a break?
The YBF.com breaks down a recent radio interview Kenya gave to Detroit’s FM 98′s morning show featuring COCO, Foolish, & Mr. Chase. Kenya dishes on this week’s episode. She explains why she was unprepared for her meeting with Tami Roman’s “team” and how she felt to see the other women talking so much crap about her.
In the interview, Kenya, who is from Detroit, begins by stating she is “mad as hell with these hot-ass-mess-chicks. These heffas is hating! We film and you don’t know what people are saying behind your back. So it’s like ‘wow… really?’ It’s crazy!” Wowzers.
Viewers will remember that fateful meeting between Kenya and Tami’s “people” where she showed up late, with no promotional photos and a portable CD player I would have given my right arm for back in 1998. Kenya is adamant that the meeting wasn’t totally as it seemed. She explains, “That was not like a music managing group. Tami’s team is a design team. All they do is basically style and pictures.” Continuing, Kenya says, “They really don’t do anything with music they just wanted to hear my song… they weren’t a music group or anything like that. They basically just do photos and styling for an album cover, etc…”
Kenya also wants to set the record straight about the coat she was wearing that Tami called a “peasant coat.” She says the coat actually cost her roughly $3,000.00 and bears the Save the Queen label. So there!
While it appeared that Kenya was being ganged up on for those ridiculous–but I’ll give her stupid brave–online videos, they have at the very least garnered her lots of attention. She tells the radio crew about her twitter trending, “Third week in a row! So I was just like, ‘Yall hate is making me great!’”
Of course, like all reality stars, especially the new girls who know their time could be fleeting, Kenya is vague about her returning for a second season of the show. She admits, “I don’t know… we’ll see how it all ends up. I’m just the new girl and there’s new girls every year. They just go in on the new girl.” However, Kenya isn’t concerned about how others may perceive her. She states, “My pageant history has given me the confidence where I can hear people talk mess and say whatever and I can still see myself how I see myself as a beautiful talented smart person who is goal orientated and driven.”
And “talk mess” they will. Evelyn Lozada devotes some of her precious personal blog time to the season’s newcomer. I have to admit that ol’ Evelyn didn’t come down on her nearly as hard as I would have expected.
She writes, “[O]n to KENYA! What in the world is going on in that girl’s head (no pun intended)? That weave-wig has to go…like now! Seriously, before she continues to pursue her singing career (and to her credit, she can sing) yet she needs to set up an appointment with @tamiroman’s glam squad, quick like and in a hurry.” Evelyn also feels the need to put in her two cents on the discord between Kenya and fellow new girl Kesha Nichols.
Evelyn observes, “The beef between her and Kesha is a mess. I don’t really know what to say. I think Kenya could have come at Kesha a little better especially since Kesha is the thorough and professional type. I know we are filming and we approach things when we meet up however Kenya should’ve had that conversation with Kesha in private. There was no need to throw a jab like that in front of all those people. I’m all about keeping it 100 but that was a bit much.” That’s a fair opinion, don’t you think? Evelyn is, after all, notorious for fighting her battles off camera and keeping it klassy on the show, right? Right? RIGHT? Oh, gracious.
In other Basketball Wives news, Tami is hating on Kesha. On an upcoming episode, Tami and Kesha have a brawl. Did it have anything to do with Kesha trying to move in on Kenya’s husband? Tami recently tweeted about the most recent episode, “OK so they just cut the part out where Keisha [sic] exchanged numbers with @kenyabell’s husband & tried 2keep it on the low #shady.” If that’s true, Evelyn won’t be the only one bringing dramz this season!
WHAT DID YOU THINK OF KENYA’S INTERVIEW? HAS SHE RECEIVED AN UNFAIR EDIT? DO THE OTHER LADIES KNOW ENOUGH ABOUT THE NEWBIES TO JUDGE THEM? WHO WOULD YOU BET ON IN A FIGHT, KENYA OR KESHA?
Last night’s Survivor started off simple enough…the women have gained momentum, the once unified Manono are beginning to crumble. However, I never thought I would see or hear what I did. Boo to you, Colton. Boo. To. You. And to think, last week I thought we’d be biffles if I ever met you on the street. Shame on me.
The men head back to camp after sending Hairless Matt packing. The remaining Muscles can’t believe the outcasts have aligned. Tarzan and Troyzan decide Bill needs to be next, not because they don’t like him – quite the opposite! Bill is so charming he’s dangerous, potentially eroding the core alliance of five.

With less than two weeks until the premiere, ABC has now released the all new Dancing With The Stars season 14 cast costume photos!
The View’s Sherri Shepherd is pictured above in her silver sequence dress with partner Val Chmerkovskiy. More photos of the other stars and their partners are below!
And if you’re planning on making a few extra bucks betting on the outcome of Dancing with the Stars, the NYDailyNews is making it easier for you. Vegas odds-maker, America’s Line, has been kind enough to calculate the odds for the twelve new contestants on the “celebrity” (that term gets looser and looser as the seasons fly by, doesn’t it? #notyoujaleel) dance competition.
For example, many of you at home may not have heard of the Hispanic Brad Pitt, but as the star of his country’s prime soap opera (telenovella, to be use the correct term for a Spanish soap) the yummy, William Levy is favored with 9-2 odds to win the coveted mirror ball trophy. Those are early predictions, as the betting line was created within hours of ABC announcing the season 14 cast.
America’s Line President, Ben Eckstein reveals, “Last season, we correctly predicted J.R. Martinez as the favorite and eventual winner.” He continues, “This season, we’re gonna try another Latin star, William Levy. Known as the ‘Cuban Brad Pitt,’ Levy is gorgeous, he has a ‘special’ relationship with Jennifer Lopez, and with J-Lo as a mentor — remember she was a former Fly Girl — how can he possibly lose?” So you’re saying he can dance?
America’s Line isn’t the only statistician to play the odds. Wynn Las Vegas predicts The View‘s Sherri Shepherd to take the title, as she’s a 5-1 contender according to their math. What will this do to the talk show’s dynamic? Will Bawbawa be proud? Will Hasselbeck be jealous? Will Whoopi bust out a new pair of sneakers for each show? America’s Line cites Sherri’s odds as 15-1.
The site is kind enough to break down the statistics for each star. Hispanic hunk William Levy is at the top of the food chain with aforementioned 9-2 odds. Last season, his partner Cheryl Burke danced J.R. into the winner’s circle. It doesn’t hurt that William is tall, dark, and handsome…and that accent! According to Vegas, he’s a frontrunner who is easy on the eyes.
With not to shappy 5-1 odds is cheesehead NFL player, Donald Driver. While his partner, Peta Murgatroyd (wasn’t that a Jetsons’ phrase?), is dancing in her inaugural season, Donald is no stranger to winning. And not in a Charlie Sheen way. The dude has a Super Bowl ring to prove it.
My man Urkel, aka the grown up Jaleel White, gains 6-1 odds by America’s Line standards and gets an impressive 9-1 distinction from the Wynn Las Vegas. Who can blame them? It’s Urkel! He’ll win that mirror ball, smile cunningly into the camera and ask, “Did I do that?” Not to mention, since it’s Dancing with the Stars, he’s one of the few that will be perceived as a “star” across multiple generations. I’m sure Family Matters is still a staple in syndication. #winslowneighbor
Maria Menounos is holding strong with a 6-1 statistic from both oddsmakers. Not only does she host Extra, she Tebows with Tim himself and starts off the competition with an already rocking, fit body. She’ll be a contender.
R&B superstar, Gladys Knight has 6-1 odds according to America’s Line, but Wynn is only offering a 20-1 spread. No worries though, she’s been hip-shaking with the Pips since before most of the voters were born. While that could potentially hurt the Motown songstress, I hope it will open her music up to an entirely new fan base.
Opera singer Katherine Jenkins (forgive me, but who?) garners 8-1 and 16-1 odds from America’s Line and Wynn Las Vegas respectively. She’s cute, she’s tiny, and she can sing…in a genre that most people only have heard of when preceded by “The Phantom of the.” An underdog, yes… but doesn’t America love one of those?
Of course it wouldn’t be a recent DWTS season if ABC didn’t go after the tween vote. Ron Bergeron isn’t stupid…The Disney Channel needs to represent. This season, it offers 20-year-old Roshon Fegan, star of Shake It Up, as its sacrificial lamb. Apparently, the Sprouse twins were too busy filming Zack and Cody Spend Senior Year on the Moon. Who can blame them? Going to school on a cruise ship is overrated. Roshon’s odds? 10-1 from America’s Line and 7-1 according to Wynn.
Gavin DeGraw, who recieves 12-1 odds from America’s Line and 25-1 odds from Wynn Las Vegas, is a pensive singer/songwriter, takes the competition up a notch. He’s promised to continue touring while learning his routines and filming the show. Seeing as he recently recovered from being violently attacked on the streets of Manhattan, I’d say this is small potatoes for the guy.
Jack Wagner receives 12-1 odds from America’s Line and 14-1 odds from Wynn Las Vegas. Jack is fortunate to span many a fan’s television lifeline. Did I watch him on General Hospital? Heck no, but my dad’s girlfriend did…as did everyone else in that age group demographic. Was I glued to my television screen in college (yes, I’m old) when he was the hottest guy next to Grant Show on Melrose Place? Yes, yes I was. Sadly, despite his stellar day and night soap resume, he’ll likely appeal to viewers as Heather Locklear’s (God, she was a great bitch as Amanda–RIP MP) recent ex-fiance.
Melissa Gilbert, ex-wife of my childhood husband, Bruce Boxleitner (if you didn’t watch/have never heard of Scarecrow and Mrs. King, I am sad for you. #Netflix) is pulling 12-1 odds from Wynn Las Vegas and 20-1 odds from America’s Line. Most famous for her long run on Little House on the Prairie, it begs the question, what would Michael Landon say?
Personally, Urkel aside, Martina Navratilova is someone I would LOVE to see make it far in this competition. I love tennis. I play tennis. I am horribly God awful at tennis. But I have always loved my tennis icons…and while America’s Line gives this superstar athlete and Wimbledon champion 25-1 odds coupled with Wynn’s 30-1 odds, I have a feeling she’ll prove us all wrong. Deuces.
Pictures of the 14th season cast are below. Place your (non-monetary, I no way condone or promote gambling) bets now!

Last night’s Basketball Wives was, per the usual, a hot mess of hating on the new girls, horrific dancing, and bad behavior at a charity event. Hmmm, was it a rerun?
The episode begins in Miami, with Evelyn coming over to Tami’s house to visit. Evelyn is so over the infidelity rumors, and Tami totally understands the lifestyle of an athlete, but that doesn’t necessarily mean he’s cheating on her. She advises her friend to ignore all the press. Evelyn has tried to tell Chad that the rumors don’t just affect their relationship, they affect their children. Tami is convinced the pair will be happily married in no time.
Evelyn takes the red-eye to New York to meet the new girls with Suzie. Evelyn is keen on Kesha’s style, but she is questioning Kenya’s weave. Kesha can’t get over Suzie’s constant penis references. For Suzie, Evelyn brings up Kenya’s Youtube videos. Evelyn is impressed that Kenya is open to taking down the videos, after hearing that they aren’t sexy or good. Evelyn feels a tad (just a tad) badly about bringing the videos’ suckiness to Kenya’s attention.

Another day, another drama, in the land of Teen Mom…
Vying with Amber Portwood for title of Most Incarcerated MTV Star, Jenelle Evans found herself back in the Brunswick County clink yesterday on charges of misdemeanor stalking. Eonline.com is reporting that the 20-year-old mom’s recent arrest is due to accusations made by her former boss James Duffy, which resulted in an arrest warrant.
Jenelle’s agent, Leo Daniels (remind me again why she needs an agent?) claims that Jenelle turned herself into authorities in order to clear her name after returning home from the Teen Mom reunion in New York City.
He tells E!, “Duffy filed cyberstalking charges against Jenelle. She has not posted anything about him in a long time. Duffy came up with these accusations…Jenelle was aware of the warrant because Duffy posted all about it on Facebook and Twitter on Friday. Jenelle was in New York over the weekend. When she returned home, she went up to see what was going on. She was read the charges and they let her go.”
Jenelle and her old boss have participated in a hateful merry-go-round of nasty Facebook and Twitter harassment after Duffy, allegedly, posted pictures online of Jenelle’s wild, party girl ways. As if anyone was shocked by that. Yesterday’s arrest marked the third time this year the young mom has been put behind bars…and it’s barely March! This time around, Jenelle was released a few hours after she was booked, having to post $1000 bond. She is due back in court on March 23.
Also speaking out on the arrest, is Jenelle’s attorney Dustin Sullivan (I do get why she needs a lawyer, just not an agent), who tells Radaronline.com, “She was arrested and posted a $1,000 unsecured bail.”
Dustin continues, insisting, “[Duffy]’s just retaliating against Jenelle. The charges have no merit. This is just absurd.”
“I’m not concerned with the affection on her probation,” he says about her current arrest.
Fear not though, Jenelle seems to at least have a sense of humor about the situation (although I am not sure that’s a good thing), tweeting yesterday, “Well I’m having a fantastic morning lmao. Bye bye twitter for a month :(.”
A picture of Jenelle’s most recent mug shot is below.

Last night’s Mob Wives was more about tricks than treats, with the women divided between two, that’s right, TWO competing Halloween parties. The horror!
Drita D’avanzo and Carla Facciolo are taking their kids to pick out some pumpkins for Drita’s upcoming Halloween party. Carla thinks it is going to be a fun, drama-free party based on the guest list. Both hope that Renee Graziano will attend, and for a little while she’ll be able to enjoy herself and shake off the funk of Junior going back to jail. Carla and Drita are worried about Renee and all the stress she unnecessarily takes on in her life.
Ramona Rizzo is dining with her friend Lina, who has known her since before she married her now ex-husband. She reveals that she got disowned by her father because she didn’t marry an FBI—full-blooded Italian. Ramona’s first husband was Arabic, and she was hoping that because he was from a different culture, she would be so far removed from the criminal lifestyle. She was wrong about her husband, just like she was wrong about her current boyfriend.

The ladies of the Real Housewives of Atlanta return tonight, after taking Sunday off, last week. Of course, even after taking a short break, there is no break in the women discussing the recent drama on that never-ending trip to the Dark Continent.
Marlo tells the site, “I don’t think of her as a friend either. The only reason we communicate is because of NeNe [Leakes]. We don’t have anything in common except we’re both tall and pretty.” And they both have some healthy self-esteem, I’ll bet. Marlo, who describes the pair as “cordial,” admits she was disappointed that Cynthia joined the smalls in gossip, while the castmates were vacationing in South Africa.
“It did shock me that she was talking to them about me,” Marlo reveals. “When we were in Africa together, we did get along. We did talk.”
As viewers recall, Cynthia changed her tune about Marlo when the Neenster joined the group for lunch. Marlo continues, “When NeNe came back around, it was, ‘Oh, I love Marlo.’ She’s a little two-faced here.”
Marlo also discusses her role on the show, saying she knew from the start she wouldn’t be joining the cast as a main housewife. Marlo isn’t even married…although, let’s be honest, being an actual housewife has never been a prerequisite to starring in the franchise. Marlo says, “I knew I wasn’t going to be a housewife..I knew what my position was in the beginning.”
However, rumors are swirling that Atlanta’s Kim Zolciak will be getting her own Bethenny Frankel-style Bravo spin-off, leaving a vacancy in the cast. Marlo isn’t automatically assuming that she will fill that void, stating, “I gotta wait and see what God has planned.”
Also getting her own show is Kandi Burruss, whose show The Kandi Factory airs tonight at 10PM ET on Bravo. In an interview with DetroitNews.com, Kandi discusses her Bravo spinoff and her anger over Sheree’s two-faced actions in Africa!
First, Kandi explains why she decided to take a leap with her own show. “I don’t want people to get confused,” Kandi states. “I’m not a reality star, I’m a business and entertainment mogul who happens to be on a reality show. ‘The Kandi Factory’ will allow me to show peole what I really do. I love helping people and I love making hits.”
And when it comes to her drama with Sheree, Kandi reveals: “I was irritated when I watched the whole thing again.” She, however, adds that she and Sheree are still friends. “I’m not the kind of person who holds grudges,” Kandi says. “I was mad at Sheree for what she did but that’s not enough reason to cut her off and not be her friend.”
Moving on to Kim Zolciak, as things continue to go well for her and her new husband, Atlanta Falcon’s defensive end Kroy Biermann. The Atlanta Journal Constitution’s online edition is reporting that the NFL player will likely sign a lucrative contract extension. Yesterday, an insider close to the negotiations stated that the re-signing was “imminent” and would likely happen within the next thirty-six hours.
Kroy was a fifth-round draft pick in 2008, and the source claims he wants to negotiate a three-year contract. The Falcons, however, would like to lock in his contract for up to four years. The good news for Kim Kroy, is that the deal will be worth between $10-12 million. That’s a lot of wigs!
Meanwhile, NeNe and Cynthia hosted a party in North Carolina this weekend, along with rapper TI. Baksetball Wives star Tami Roman was also in attendance. Photos from that event are below!
On tonight’s episode, the women pack up to head back to Atlanta. Well, all except for Marlo, who lounges, while her poor South African housekeeper painstakingly follows her every command regarding shoebags, carry-ons, and designer name dropping. Kandi and Cynthia discuss tension with Sheree. Phaedra, Sheree, and Cynthia take away life lessons from the vacation, while NeNe believes they will be returning to Atlanta as two separate groups yet again, the talls and the smalls.
Back in the states, Kim is worn out taking care of her two daughters and a newborn. While she has two housekeepers, she is in desperate need of a nanny. Kim gets mad beyond words when she finds Sweetie and Brielle lounging by the pool. Who does Sweetie think she is? She doesn’t need a tan! Kim shouldn’t be charged with going through all of these resumes herself! Additionally, on the NeNe front, Bryson gets arrested, again. Shocking, I know. A new episode airs tonight at 9PM ET. Watch a preview clip below!
