You can thank MTV for that lovely and not at all offense reference to Italian food and lesbians. Always keeping it classy, the gang on last night’s Jersey Shore takes a road trip to the Italian shore. Basically the entire cast plays supporting characters, while the stars of the porn episode are everyone’s favorite drunken meatballs, Snooki and Deena.

Ronnie, Snooki and Jenni head to work at the pizza parlor. JWoww and Rawn try to apologize for the previous night’s intervention while still insisting that Snooki deserves to enjoy her time in Italy. Ronnie’s job is yelling at potential patrons from the sidewalk with a megaphone. Their boss gives them a break to go shopping for their beach trip to Vertronni. Seriously, where? I can’t understand what they are saying.

Last night the ninety minute premiere of Survivor: South Pacific aired on CBS. Two former Survivor staples and two-time previous game players Ozzy Lusth and Coach Wade are back to square off with the newbie castaways on an episode aptly titled “I Need Redemption.”

Right off the bat, we meet John “Cochran” Cochran who has watched every season of the show, and even wrote a prize winning paper on it while in law school at Harvard. Native American Elyse isn’t much into the outdoors, but she’s hoping her heritage will work to her advantage, and then there’s Rick a rancher from the Midwest. Stacey is a funeral director and mortician who promises to be nosy and while pretending to play nice. Russell Hantz’s (a former Survivor with multiple games under his belt) nephew Brandon likens himself to Hitler’s nephew and vows to change the perception of his family’s name. Maybe not the most accurate of comparisons, but he doesn’t want his fellow castaways to know that he shares the blood of a Survivor competitor who wouldn’t have won any popularity contests.

Last night MTV decided to punish grace us with thirty extra minutes of Teen Mom, which was a tad confusing as it was just thirty extra minutes of the same old, same old. It seemed unnecessary. But enough of that, the ninety-minute episode had Amber continuing her legal battles with Child Protective Services, more drama erupting between Maci and Ryan, Farrah’s family going to counseling, and Catelynn and Tyler vacationing on Dwight Shrute’s beet farm.

Once out of the clink, Amber breaks up with Clinton so she can focus on herself and Leah. She was apparently in jail for twenty-four hours. I know this because she must tell her friend that twenty-four times during a two minute phone conversation.

Catelynn has finished her requirements for graduation. Even though their ceremony is a few months away, she and Tyler are eager to find out how Carly’s adoptive parents will respond to the invitation to come see the pair accept their high school diplomas. One quick check of their ipad (thanks, MTV!) reveals that Carly’s adoptive parents have sent Catelynn an e-mail. They are very proud of the teen’s accomplishments, but they are unable to give an answer as to whether they will come to graduation. They need more time to think about it. Not defeated, Catelynn and Tyler can see what a difficult decision this must be for Carly’s adoptive parents. The couple hopes that they will come, but they understand if they choose not to attend.

On last night’s Basketball Wives: L.A., Jackie logged by far the most screen time, some of Draya’s past was revealed, and while Imani can’t stomach strippers, she sure does enjoy a good sex shop.

We resume with the ladies back at Draya’s BET party. After too much booty popping on Malaysia Pargo, Draya Michele comes to the conclusion that Malaysia might not get her sense of humor. Realizing it’s “Knock a B*tch Out” time, Malaysia takes the high road and heads home so as to avoid another situation like the one she had earlier with Laura Govan. That’s all well and good with Draya as she now is the prettiest b*tch in the group. Oh, okay.

America’s headache sweetheart Kate Gosselin, who graces the cover of People magazine in an interview in which she fears for the future of her eight children now that her reality show on TLC has been cancelled, is now receiving some choice words from her ex-husband Jon Gosselin.

After Kate revealed to the world that she was scared for the well-being of her family, her former punching bag door mat media whore cradle robber now normal ex-husband doled out some tough love, reminding the trained nurse (What? She didn’t go to school to be a fame-grubbing reality star?) that “[r]eality TV is not a career.” He urges his one time love to “[g]et back to a normal life — a simple life. Provide for your family.”

Jon continues, giving some positive support to Kate (although not the kind she’s looking for as it doesn’t involve paparazzi, networks, or a magazine spread). He says, “Things will work out the way they should work out. Obviously there are families out there that have several kids – people work normal jobs and things work out. Everything is possible.”

Jon, who became tabloid fodder for dating girls half his age while hosting Vegas parties and hanging with Lindsay Lohan’s dad, reveals he is happy with his simple life, stating, “I go to work every day and provide for my family. I spend time with my kids – spend time on the weekends. I spend time with the girlfriend I’ve had for over a year now. And enjoy a normal lifestyle.”

As for Kate’s worries that she won’t be able to provide for her kids in the manner in which she’s they’ve become accustomed, Jon reminds her, “I don’t have a farm on 24 acres and the kids seem to have a great time at my house.” While a court order prohibits him from going into detail about support payments and visitation, Jon can divulge that he sees his children a lot while continuing to pay child support.

I’m sure that support is very helpful to Kate, as reports recently surfaced (after her dire People cover story) that she had bought herself quite the little toy. As soon as the People story broke, media outlets were reporting that Kate had purchased a sweet new ride…a new two-seater $50,000+ Audi TT to be exact. Um, no. She got that practical vehicle months ago when she thought the money would roll in forever her show was safe.

To all the haters, Kate fires back, “I bought this car used in April, six months ago. The paparazzi that are following me as we speak chose not to photograph it until after my show was cancelled and make a big deal out of it. I love the tabloid media!” The ol’ ‘blame it on the paparazzi’ gag. Because they are smart enough to predict that they shouldn’t photograph your new car because soon you’ll lose your sweet TV gig and pics of this car will triple…that’s exactly what happened. Priceless.

As for Jon’s advice, Kate doesn’t have much to say. “I don’t really have anything to say about Jon’s comments because he doesn’t live my life. I don’t listen to anything he has to say.” And what a life it is, Kate. Gracious!

WHOSE SIDE ARE YOU ON REGARDING JON AND KATE? DO YOU THINK SHE’S STRUGGLING FINANCIALLY AS MUCH AS SHE SAYS SHE IS IN INTERVIEWS? MORE IMPORTANTLY, WHAT ARE YOUR THOUGHTS ON HER NEW RIDE?

Imani Showalter

Draya Michele is quickly becoming one of the season’s most talked about cast mates on Basketball Wives: Los Angeles. Whether it’s her stripper past, issues with her son, or feuding with the ladies, she is sure to bring the drama.

Draya recently sat down for an interview with VIBE Vixen where she discusses her business aspirations, her favorite Miami cast members, and how she is portrayed this season on the show. Read an excerpt from the interview below.

You’re obviously pegged as the girl who’s going to shake up the show, but how do you want to portrayed on the show?
Hopefully, after editing and everything, it changes some people’s opinions of me. I know what to expect, so I won’t be shocked if a lot more people hate me than they already do. People don’t always have the nicest things to say about me, so I’m used to it already.

I want people to see what I do and how I live me life, just so they have a better understand of what it is that I do. A lot of people are confused about how I live my life and why I live my life a certain way and I’m able to travel so much. I want to put a light on what [my life] really is. It is not always a party. I don’t look at a party as a party; I look at a party as a job, so [the show] will let people know what is really going on inside of my world.

Can you let people know what you do?
I do everything. Anything and everything I can get my hands on out here in LA, I’m into it. I’m doing my acting, my modeling and starting a business–a million things.

Now, make it clear — what’s you connect to the basketball world?
Basically, now I’m friends with a bunch of wives and I dated a basketball player before. I mean, it was nothing currently or anything like that. It was a couple years ago. No big deal.

Who is your favorite wife or cast member [from Miami franchise]?
I bounce back and forth between Tami and Evelyn. I like different things in each of them, so I bounce back and forth between them.

Would you say you have the same feisty nature as well, or do you like them because that’s them?
I like them because that’s them, but I have similarities that I see in Evelyn. I am little bit more reserved, and I don’t really like to snap on people and show that side. I don’t think it is really necessary for me to get all crazy, but I can. I definitely have that inside of me. All I need the right person to bring it out.

Now that everyone is critiquing you and being on the show, are you regretful at all?
No, I’m having fun, and it’s a learning experience for me.

Do you have any close friends in the industry or on the show?
Close friends is a touchy [thing] for me. As far as models go, I like to keep most of them as associates. Girls are designed to disappoint you, so I am very careful and selective of who I call my friends. I don’t really want to shout anybody out as my friend, but I do have some. Everybody don’t hate me [laughs]. I got a personality that if you know me, you will like me. It just comes off as a little bit cold at first, but eventually I can warm up to anybody if I want to.

There’s been talks about the child endangerment arrest and your son, will we be able to meet your son on the show?
You will definitely see me doing my family thing, my mom thing and my work thing. Anything that is me is going to be on there. Of course, my son is an important part of my life, so I wouldn’t do anything that didn’t involve him. I didn’t leave anything uncovered.

What projects do you have in the works?
I am working on a bikini line right now for all types of girls. Its going to be affordable for everybody and stylish enough for everybody.

And while Draya may not be concerned about being friends with the other ladies, cast mate Imani Showalter has been getting some negative attention from calling Draya “worthless” during the women’s life coaching session on last week’s episode.

During her tweeting last week, Imani did not back down or apologize for her opinions, even when the backlash increased. She took to twitter to say, “Having an opinion and judging are 2 separate things. Even if its unpopular I have to stick to my beliefs. Sorry guys. I will take all the backlash but my words had nothing to do with her stripping or any man issues. It’s was a deeper issue. Will all unfold.”

However, the following day, Imani gave a shout out to her cast mate, tweeting, “Myself & @drayaface have spoken since that taped & we are at a good place. Communication heals :)” Does it? I am sure we’ll see it all unfold this season. A new episode of Basketball Wives: Los Angeles airs tonight at 8pm ET on VH1.

Last night was Jersday for all you Jersey Shore fanatics (no shame in that game!). Mike is slightly immobile, Rawn and Sam get back together (no I’m not re-recapping last week), Pauly and Vin make fun of juiceheads who are juicier than themselves, and Snooki’s relationship with Jionni leaves the house up at arms.

So Mike will be sporting the neck brace for ten days, and it’s quite a situation as it’s rendered him unable to GTL. The horror! After Ronnie tore the house apart and shattered what (if any) was left of Sammi’s self-esteem and dignity the night before, he goes to her in the morning to profess his love. He hopes she’ll let him talk to her later. I am overwhelmed at his maturity…this relationship just may make it after all. They are so cute together and when it’s good, it’s great! In other news, I wish there was a sarcasm font.

Monday marked the premiere of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, and if you’re anything like me, you may have been wondering if Taylor Armstrong was even able to watch it in light of the recent suicide of estranged husband Russell Armstrong.

Well for starters, the show premiered to high ratings for the Bravo network. While some were concerned over what impact Russell’s passing would have on the show, it appears there was no reason for that as over 2.2 million viewers tuned in for the season debut. That is a 42% increase from the season one premiere last year. Those numbers are even more impressive considering Monday was a holiday.

But back to Taylor as Radaronline is reporting that Bravo executives gave her an advance copy of the show which had been re-edited due to the recent events. She was able to watch it before it aired on Labor Day. An insider reveals, “Taylor watched the entire episode several days ago. She was very moved by the heartfelt comments that each of the Housewives made regarding Russell’s suicide. There were a lot of tears shed as she watched the episode.”

The source continues, “Taylor didn’t watch the season premiere with any of the Housewives. Kyle, Adrienne and Lisa are in New York City doing press for the show. However, Kyle did call Taylor to check-in with her. Kyle and Taylor are very close. Taylor was very emotional watching it, but she is very supportive of how Bravo is handling Russell’s suicide. Taylor believes that watching the show now will be cathartic and healing for her.” As for Kennedy, Taylor’s five-year-old daughter with Russell, the insider says, “[She] has started school, and doing well. Taylor is now trying to put her life back together.”

And while it may be healing for Taylor to watch the season, it will no doubt be hard. According to one source, Bravo plans to air footage of the couple’s marriage counseling, parts of which were filmed for the series. The insider reveals, “Bravo has made the decision to air their marriage counseling sessions. Taylor is supportive of the network airing the therapy sessions. Bravo will be looking at those sessions and doing any necessary edits if needed, given Russell’s suicide. Both Russell and Taylor were filmed individually during their sessions. Taylor’s will definitely be airing, although it’s likely that Russell’s individual sessions won’t be.” Both Taylor and Russell agreed to let the network document their sessions.

However, some reports say otherwise. A mouthpiece for the network commented, “The producers and Bravo are in the process of re-editing the entire series. As a result, any report regarding the content of upcoming episodes is mere speculation.” The couple was seeing Dr. Charles Sophy for help with their crumbling marriage. Before Russell’s suicide, the pair’s marital problems were set to be a big story line of the season. However, Bravo has since edited the season, so some speculate that the sessions will not be included. The premiere episode cut original footage of Taylor shopping for lingerie in an effort to spice up her love life with Russell. However, it aired the tense dinner party at Adrienne Maloof’s where Taylor felt attacked by Ken Vanderpump after revealing her and Russell’s decision to seek counseling.

While we are watching a show filmed pre-tragedy, those closest to Russell are still trying to cope with his decision to take his own life. As I’m sure you’ve heard, Russell’s family is speculating that his tragic death may not have been at his own hands. TMZ reports that the Coroner’s Office recently released Russell’s toxicology results, which revealed no alcohol or drugs where in his system when he died. Russell’s family is hiring a private investigator to look into the possibility of foul play. However, neither the Los Angeles coroner nor Taylor herself believe Russell was murdered.

And finally, Russell’s family continues to speak out against Taylor. The latest accusation comes from Russell’s mother who alleges Taylor charged over $90,000 to Russell’s credit card after filing for divorce.

“$90,000 was put on his credit card in June, not by him,” revealed John Ann Hotchkiss during an interview with Jane Velez-Mitchell on HLN Wednesday. “Taylor put $90,000 on there,” she said. “She put $90,000 on his credit card in June after she separated.” It doesn’t seem like this drama will be ending anytime soon.
