The National Geographic Channel (thank goodness they stopped trying to make “Nat Geo” stick) is introducing a new series that promises to be equal parts The Godfather, Jersey Shore, and The Sopranos. The show, American Gypsies, sounds like it will be entirely amazing, given that it’s produced by none other than everyone favorite martial arts underdog, Daniel-sanRalph Macchio. When does it start??
Ralph tells the Huffington Post, “This is a fascinating subculture that exists right here in New York. I was astounded by some of the customs and what I would call unorthodox choices and traditions, but [they were] kind of relatable in a way with me being from a Greek-Italian-American family. They have strong beliefs and family comes first — this story needed to be told.”
I hope the following news doesn’t cause Mob Wives’Renee Graziano another epic meltdown. It seems that her ex-husband Junior Pagan has gotten really good at turning on his mobster friends. It shouldn’t be too hard to do, considering he’s had practice ratting out his father-in-law!
The NY Daily News reports that Junior has now snitched on two men, Richard Riccardi and Luigi Grasso, who were his accomplices during a robber which ended in a fatal shooting. Junior testified that Riccardi supplied him with guns and Grasso accompanied him to rob a man who was an associate of a rival family. When the man resisted, Junior shot him in the leg, causing the man to bleed to death. The Junior and his cohorts made off with over $10,000.
Last night’s Teen Mom wasn’t quite as depressing as I thought it would be, so that’s a plus right? There were other pluses too…a dog got painted, Maci finally realized Bentley needed to socialize with kids his own age, Amber decided to stick it out in rehab, and Butch reveals that he isn’t a big drinker. Just wait.
Farrah’s sister Ashley is visiting her in Florida. Her mom will be arriving in the next few days for a visit. Farrah reveals that she and Sophia have a more better place to live in Florida than she ever had at her mom’s house. Yes, yes, Farrah. It’s way more better. How’s school?
So what I’ve learned is that just because you rap it, it doesn’t make it real. It seems we all could learn a lot from the illustrious Kanye West.
In Kanye’s song Cold he raps, “Lucky I ain’t had Jay drop him from the team.” Of course, he is referring to his best buddy Jay-Z having girlfriend Kim Kardashian’s ex-husband kicked off the New Jersey Brooklyn Nets.
Today, after scoring a $24 million contract with the team, Kris Humphriestweeted, I’m up at Brooklyn! @ S_C_ ‘lucky I didn’t have Jay drop me from the team’ lol!” TMZ reports that it is a two year contract with a pretty significant raise, given that his prior contract was for a year at $8 million. Maybe Beyonce is in her team-owner hubby’s ear a little more than his rapping partner in crime…
It was the birthday party from H-E-double hockey sticks on last night’s Dance Moms. Abby Lee Miller doesn’t only have some of her dancers in tears, but some of the moms as well!
The bottom of the pyramid is Paige because of Kelly changing her choreography. While Abby is proud that she beat her Candy Apple counterpart, perhaps she would have beaten her even better with Abby’s moves. MacKenzie joins Paige on the bottom, followed by Brooke who is finally off of probation. The middle rung Nia and Maddie. Chloe takes the spot for landing her solo in the top ten and winning the overall best costume award.
In what may just be the least shocking news ever, it seems that there are still fans of Jon & Kate Plus 8 who walk among us. Well fan. Singular. And it’s Kate Gosselin herself. Color me surprised!
The former reality mom turned fifteen minutes of fame diva recently tweeted, “Wow. We all agreed: we miss our show&the adventures and huge opportunities to help and entertain :)others! Why am I watching and crying??!:)” My guess is she’s crying because she’s no longer on television, but I could be totally wrong about that!
It’s official. I am going to have my own reality television show. I am not sure of the concept (although I am sure all of you would line up to watch me watch reality TV), but it will happen. Why, you ask? Well, it seems that anyone–and I mean ANYONE–can get their own show these days. I know that’s no surprise to any of you though.
Next up, it’s time to sit back and relax with The Game (real name: Jayceon Terrell Taylor, thanks Google!). He’s done beating up people, getting shot, and hanging out in jail, and, according to TMZ, he’s ready to walk down the aisle! The rapper is working with 51 Minds Entertainment to create a show which follows his engagement and wedding to fiance Tiffany Cambridge. The show will reportedly showcase Game as a family man helping to plan his wedding. While neither the rapper turned reality star nor the production company will comment, it’s rumored that the show has already been pitched to MTV and VH1.
No word on whether Chad Ochocinco will be on hand to give wedding advice!
Joseline and Erica meet to discuss their fight. Joseline apologizes for accusing Erica of sleeping with Stevie J. Erica refuses to accept said apology and goes off on how she doesn’t like Joseline. For once–and I am shocked to type this–Joseline is the bigger person and walks away from the conversation when she realizes there is no changing Erica’s mind.
Mimi Faust is packing up Stevie J’s belongings. While she loves him, she just can’t stay with a man who is unfaithful. I’m pretty sure she isn’t just learning this, but whatevs. Ariane comes over to check on her friend, and she’s shocked that Mimi is actually biting the bullet. Mimi reveals that she’s still very sad, and she would love for their relationship to work. Basically, Mimi’s bottom line is Stevie is welcome back if he stops screwing with Joseline. Clearly she doesn’t really care if he’s faithful, she just doesn’t want him to be unfaithful with the likes of Joseline. Baby steps, I guess.
