On last night’s Survivor, Colton continued to play puppet master. The tribes divided, and one was a lot more stacked than the other…I’m just sayin’. Colton has his new tribe eating out of the palm of his uncalloused, manicured hand, and I want to reach through my screen and pluck one of his eyebrows more than the other so they’d look uneven. That’s true retaliation, let me tell you.
The Salani awake after not having to attend tribal council. They can’t believe that the men of Manono are such a mess. The women hope that the merge is impending, as they are now seven strong against the men’s crumbling brood. Jeff Probst invites the teams to the reward challenge and calls for a tribe switch. Colton looks like someone just yanked his favorite silver spoon right out of his mouth! The new teams will be chosen at random. Each player will receive an egg. Jeff will count down to when everyone can smash their egg against their chest. The color of the yolk will determine the new tribes. The blues are Salani while the orange is Manono. I will say, it seems the blue team got the best of both. It will be fun watching Colton and Alicia vie for attention on the new orange team.

It was the tribal council heard round the world…you know, the one the men’s winning tribe shouldn’t have even been attending. Survivor fans witnessed a great deal of ignorance from Colton Cumbie, the homosexual, rich, Republican, college student who grew up in Alabama charging everything to his parents’ credit cards and hanging out at the country club.
Colton, who fancies himself the leader of the Manono (having received the immunity idol from the women doesn’t hurt his rank either), unleashed some ugly on his hated nemesis, poor stand-up comic Bill Posely. As his tribe mates looked on, most staying silent, Bill was voted off the show. As he said his parting words, Bill displayed, in my opinion, a great deal of class in his dismissal.
In an interview with People.com, Bill opens about why he decided to agree with the Manono to give up immunity to the losing Salani - a first in the history of the show, as well his thoughts on “spoiled brat” Colton. Read that interview below.
Why would you agree to give up immunity?!
I thought I had guys like Jonas, Troy, Matt and Jay on my side and that I could get them to help me blindside Colton. I figured we could go in to Tribal Council and reveal Colton for who he is. I didn’t know how much power Colton had. I didn’t know he didn’t like me. I didn’t even know he had an idol until Leif said something. It all came crashing down at Tribal Council.
Why did Colton have such an issue with you?
I think that the tribe gave me a lot of attention when I was being funny and goofing off and unfortunately it took the spotlight off of him. I think he was used to being in control of his life. He hated having a lot of attention being on someone else.
Your confrontation with him at camp was very heated.
I tried to go up and make some sort of offer of the olive branch and see if we could talk this out, but he didn’t want to talk. Finally I was fed up with playing nice. Nobody else was standing up to him and I couldn’t take it anymore, so I said what I feel like everybody needed to be saying: “He’s a spoiled brat and can’t talk to anybody the way he wants to.”
Colton called Leif a munchkin and an Oompa Loompa.
It is horrible. Colton comes from a spoiled, sheltered, ignorant background. To be able to go to your church with your boyfriend and live with him as an openly gay man and not be persecuted and ridiculed in a town in Alabama – that’s so rare. He was never persecuted and ridiculed because his family is so affluent and they spoil him. He doesn’t know the hurt that a guy like Leif had to deal with his whole life. Colton doesn’t know how it is to be picked on so he thinks its okay to call Leif a munchkin or Oompa Loompa. He thinks it’s okay to call me ghetto trash and say that I should kill myself. It’s crazy.
You two had it out at Tribal Council.
He said in Tribal that he “doesn’t associate himself with poor people” and to “take my broke ass home.” I think it was just a classist thing. He’s ignorant and just didn’t like that I was from a different walk of life than him. To have everyone sit quietly while Colton said those things about me was hard.
Tarzan spoke up.
For him to defend Colton after what he had heard was appalling.
Did you take anything positive out of this experience?
I had a mom write to me and tell me her and her daughter were tearing up listening to me talk at Tribal and were so sad about what Colton had said. I thought I would be the funny guy not somebody that people would be inspired by.
As one would expect, Colton is quick to respond to Bill’s statements, and like any good reality star, he’s learned that Twitter is where people air their dirty laundry regarding their celebreality peers. After receiving well-deserved backlash, Colton took to the twitterverse to defend himself and apologize…sort of…okay, not really.
The controversial Survivor tweeted recently, “Were my comments ignorant? YES! They were meant to be funny..I see they weren’t. Do I regret them? I’m torn. In a way, yes b/c it hurt ppl.”
He continued, in 140 characters or less, by stating, “..but seeing myself act that way on television helps me to grow as a person b/c it’s uncomfortable and embarrassing for ME to watch. It’s kind of one of those situations where you you don’t really realize how you sound until it’s played back and you’re literally cringing..”
Colton sums up his response tweets with the following nugget, admitting, “I seriously don’t hate anyone. I make fun of MYSELF..my sense of humor as always been kind sarcastic and somewhat critical. I call myself a “queen” as a joke. Am I a bigot? I don’t think so. I think I was a 20 year old brat who had never been out into the real world, and what I thought was funny and ok wasn’t. I’ve learned I can still be funny and it doesn’t have to be at the expense of some1 else. *pageant wave*”
Well, I’m happy that both he and Bill can agree that Colton acted like a total brat, at the very least. I’m all about letting stupid behavior slide (you have to when part of your job involves writing about Kim Kardashian!), but I can’t help but think that Colton is trying to do more damage control and less soul-searching. Here’s hoping Jeff Probst *pageant waves* him out of tribal council sooner rather than later!
WHAT DO YOU THINK OF BILL’S INTERVIEW? DO YOU BELIEVE THAT COLTON WAS TRYING TO BE FUNNY? ARE HIS TWEET SINCERE? HOW MUCH LONGER DO YOU THINK COLTON WILL LAST ON THE SHOW?
Last night’s Basketball Wives was all over the place – charity events, fake dinners, launch parties, and Central Park. Even better? The veterans can’t decide which newbie to hate on, so they just go back and forth between confronting Kenya and Kesha. Always in the middle? Suzie, of course!
Oh Jen, glad to see you again! Yeah, I’m just being polite. Suzie heads to Jen’s new NYC digs because she is bursting at the seams at to talk more shiz about Kenya. She shares the video shoot debacle when Kenya and her posse didn’t realize what all went into renting out the club. Give me a break, Suzie. She sounds like a twelve-year-old.
Kesha and Evelyn meet for dinner because Evelyn thinks Kesha is pretty cool. Kesha is hosting a charity event and she doesn’t want the same kind of behavior that Suzie brought to Royce’s event. Evelyn would love to support her event, but she doesn’t want drama if Jen is also invited. Kesha would like everyone to attend, but if she has to choose between Evelyn and Jennifer, Evelyn will get the invitation. However, Kesha is quick to remind Evelyn that she has no problem with Jen. She does relay her issues with Tami, and Evelyn believes those can easily be resolved if Kesha shoot straight with Tami.

Do you, dear readers, take Evelyn Lozadaand Chad Ochocinco, to have and to hold, on Tivo and DVR, in boredom and in drama, in smackdowns and in make-ups, forsaking all groupies, as long as the season lives? I do am having cold feet. Unfortunately, there’s nothing I can do about it.
As Reality Tea reported yesterday, the Basketball Wives star, who of course, has never been the wife of a basketball player and her NFL player fiancé (why are they on that show?) are getting a spin-off. The show will follow the couple’s wedding planning up until their big day…should it actually happen.
VH1 confirms that recent rumors are true, and the premiere will occur in September of this year. How will I ever wait that long to see if Evelyn is able to make an honest man out of Chad? The working title of the series is the super catchy Ev and Ocho. If you say it fast, it almost sounds like a fancy brand of olive oil. If Evelyn starts hawking her own brand of EVOO in the near future, we’ll know she reads this blog…and she may have lawsuit on her hands.
The series will be comprised by eight half-hour episodes, culminating in a special two-part wedding special. The press release cites that fans of Evelyn’s, who have watched her life unfold for four seasons on Basketball Wives, will get a special behind-the-scenes peek at the couple’s impending nuptials. We have seen Ev and Ocho’s (that will never get old) relationship on screen since its inception, so it’s only natural we get to be in on the wedding-planning planning as well, right? Hey, it worked (so far) for Kim Zolciak and Kroy Biermann!
Of course, the show won’t be all dress fittings, cake tastings, and guest list debacles, although, celebrity wedding planner Diann Valentine will be on-hand to juggle the pressures of choreographing the “star” studded extravaganza. The program will also focus on the hardships faced by Ev and Ocho (still not old) as they face rumors of infidelity, nosy paparazzi, and criticism in the media. Perhaps they could avoid such things by not making their wedding into a media circus…but I digress. The audience will also witness family turmoil regarding who will accompany Evelyn down the aisle.
Make sure to choose between the chicken and prime rib, find your plus one, and RSVP to what is sure to be the most entertaining wedding series ever…on VH1…that debuts in September…and stars Ev and Ocho.

ARE YOU EXCITED TO WATCH ALL THE PLANNING THAT WILL GO INTO EV AND OCHO’S WEDDING? WILL YOU BE TUNING IN TO EV AND OCHO? ANYONE WANT TO PLACE BETS WHETHER THE TWO-PART WEDDING EXTRAVAGANZA WILL ACTUALLY OCCUR?
Last night’s Mob Wives featured a getaway that I was forever thankful not be a part of, as it was cray-cray from the beginning. Renee brought the drama, Carla tried to play peacemaker, and even Karen attempted to maintain some sort of normalcy. She failed. Miserably.
The episode begins with Big Ang, Ramona, and Carla at the track. Big Ang loves some gambling. Karen joins the ladies for lunch, with Carla apologizing for not attending Ramona’s Halloween party. While Karen is convinced that Drita’s party totally sucked, she respects Carla’s loyalty. She suggests a ladies’ weekend in the Poconos, and all the women are excited about the prospect of a trip. Unfortunately for Big Ang, she’s having thyroid surgery and won’t be able to make it. Carla pretty much ends the chipper chatter when she mentions the ladies are forgetting to include Drita.

The ladies are settling back into their lives in Atlanta, but of course the drama follows them wherever they go. Taking to her blog, NeNe Leakes doesn’t hold back when writing about her perceived discord between the Smalls.
NeNe notes, “[T]here was drama about whether Kim [Zolciak] would have come to Africa and Kandi [Burruss]saying something about Kim holding a baby at the orphanage. The Smalls are looking a bit divided. Do you have to be friends with someone to agree with what they are saying? From what I could see, Cynthia [Bailey]said something that Kandi obviously agreed with.”
Continues the Neenster, “What’s the problem? She shouldn’t agree just because she’s not as close with Cynthia? Can you say stupid? These girls make me laugh out loud.” LOL, NeNe, LOL indeed.
Cynthia, fellow Tall and adorer of NeNe, both addresses and dismisses the South African drama in her blog entry. She begins, “It always feels good to get away for a few days, but with these girls, ten days felt like ten years! Lord have mercy! At times it was kind of like walking through a land mine, and if you didn’t watch your step, you could be blasted at any time!”
“Anything and everything you said was blown out of proportion, everything was a big deal (even when it wasn’t), and there was ‘shade’ around every corner,” reveals Cynthia. However, she doesn’t have time for that nonsense, saying, “Forever the optimist, the good always outweighs the bad with me. Positive affirmation will carry you far. The drama was inevitable on a trip like this. It was just a matter of time. Overall, drama or not, it was still the trip of a lifetime. Anyway, I missed my family so much and it felt good to be back home.”
Speaking of family, Cynthia writes, “I’m excited that Peter wants to do a one year anniversary party. We went through a lot at our wedding (understatement), and it was a tough first year. However, we made it to our one-year anniversary despite the naysayers. I’m actually very excited to celebrate!”
She admits, “We are not working with a Diddy budget or anything, but we can definitely afford to have a nice little gathering with our friends and family. Yes! There will be plenty of food and drinks, but I’m not sure if synchronized swimming mermaids in the pool will be in the budget! Thank you, NeNe, for helping Peter plan the party. Your love and support means a lot.”
Moving on to a shadier side of things, Kim’s new interior designer–also known as the woman who owns Kim and Kroy’s rented mansion–is taking heat as some of her past behavior is being questioned. Perhaps, Marlo Hampton should teach a class on the proper etiquette for shady pasts…
Wetpaint.com is reporting that Kim’s “designer” Kendra Davis has some pesky issues with controlling her temper…as does her husband. She’s married to former NBA player Antonio Davis, who played for the Chicago Bull, New York Knicks, and Toronto Raptors. Despite gossip to the contrary, a source close to the couple reveals they are not divorced.
While playing for the Bulls in January of 2006, Antonio received a five-game suspension as punishment for charging the stands after allegedly seeing a fan talking smack to Kendra.
After that incident, Kendra was charged with road rage for behavior she exhibited in October of 2005. And just, pray tell, was that behavior? Oh, she just cut off another driver and threw hot coffee into the woman’s open window. Kendra explained that she threw the coffee in retaliation to a racial slur used by the other driver, a claim the motorist denied. Kendra was later acquitted by a jury on all charges.
So basically, to those readers who live in Atlanta, if you see Kendra on highway, slow down, let her pass, and by all means, roll up your windows!
On tonight’s episode, Kim and her dad are trying to clean out the garage in anticipation of Kroy’s return from training camp. Kim yells at Sweetie for not doing enough work, while Sweetie threatens to call a local newscaster who reveals working scams. Kim’s feels like the pair’s friendship has broken down the boundaries of their working relationship.
Phaedra works towards her mortician’s license, and she’s disappointed to learn she’ll be working with a dummy to begin with…not an actual dead body. She learns how to drain the blood, embalm, and put make-up on the faux corpse. Phaedra fancies herself a painter of funeral arts.
Peter is planning the anniversary party, and he wants it to be black-tie and over the top…which translates into over budget. Peter seems to be using this party to simply impress his friends. He wants a Bentley limo, and Cynthia’s onboard until Peter tells her he won’t allow Mallory to ride with them to the party.
A new episode airs tonight at 9PM ET on Bravo. Watch a preview clip below!
DO YOU THINK THERE IS TROUBLE AMONG THE SMALLS? THOUGHTS ON CYNTHIA’S PARTY? WOULD YOU RIDE IN A CAR WITH KENDRA DAVIS?

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?
