Cabs are heeya! And they are taking those crazy kids from Jersey Shore back to the beach!
Wetpaint.com is reporting that they’re back for yet another go-round with the twin beds, astro turf roof, and duck phone. A source from the guido hit reveals that the cast is gearing up to head to Seaside Heights where they will begin filming the new season on May 21. As they will film through July, Snooki will be close to popping out that little meatball, seeing as she’s due in August.
Last night was the season finale of Mob Wives, and one never knows what is going to happen with this rowdy group of women…especially since there’s a dreaded meeting between to women who have a penchant for beating the poo out of each other.
Renee Graziano and Drita D’Avanzo meet for cocktails to discuss everything that has been going on in their lives. Drita relays the news that Lee will not be transferred to a prison in Brooklyn. Renee outlines her father’s plea deal, and she is relieved that the other people that Junior affected didn’t get much time. Renee has also scheduled the meeting between Drita and Karen Gravano for the following day. Drita is willing to go so the pair can move forward, but she doesn’t want Karen rehashing the past. Good luck with that!
Last night was the two hour finale of Survivor, and it’s a battle among the last ladies standing. Jeff Probst recaps the season’s highlights, including Colton Cumbie’s rise to power and prompt demise and the ladies’ ultimate come back.
It’s the thirty-sixth night on the beach, and the women have voted off the last man. Alicia is very confident in her friendship with Kim, but I think she may be tooting her own horn a tad too early. The following day, Sabrina and Kim collect the tree-mail. Kim approaches Sabrina about voting off Chelsea next, as she’s worried Chelsea will garner lots of jury votes. While she plays cool, Sabrina is shocked that Kim is targeting her best friend because she’s popular with the castoffs. However, it does make the likeable Sabrina wonder if she’s next on the chopping block. No one is worried about the jury voting for Alicia and Christina. I have now decided I either want Chelsea or Sabrina to win. Only took me an entire season to make that wishy washy determination…
The immunity challenge is pretty intense. After untying several knotted ropes to get through a makeshift gate, each player must race along a balance beam maze, and must start back at the beginning in the event they fall. After the maze, they will traverse a giant rope net collecting bags of (what else?) puzzle pieces. The assembled puzzles will give three number clues the women must use to unlock a combination which will free their flags. Christina is the first out of the gate, followed by Kim. They are also the first to fall off to start again. Alicia finishes the maze first with Chelsea right on her heels. Chelsea is the first to collect her bags, but everyone is neck and neck on the puzzle. Sabrina falls behind, but Kim and Chelsea are neck and neck. Kim assembles her puzzle first, followed by Alicia. Kim can’t get her combination right, and after multiple tries, she returns to the puzzle. Alicia follows suit. Kim, Chelsea, and Alicia are all up working on their combinations at the same time, and Kim finally gets it right, winning immunity.
Wow, wow, and wow. I didn’t think it would happen, but it looks like all the discord with Basketball Wives may be coming to a head. There is a petition circulating to have the show taken off the air, and there is rarely an episode that doesn’t end in a violent smack down. Bullying abounds. The women act like fools while preaching to their “friends” how they take the high road. Y’all know…you’ve seen it! Well, in a recent interview with TheDailyBeast.com, Tanya Young Williams of Basketball Wives:LA, shares her experience on the show…which she describes as hellish. While she says she’s never watched the original ladies of Miami, she reveals that her time working for Shed Media was horrific. Highlights of that interview are below, but you can read the whole thing here.
For your Friday dose of The Real Housewives of Orange County, we have three weddings and a divorce, and an on-and-off friendship that is apparently back on again. I’m sure I’ll be telling you differently on Monday!
And another Bravo Housewives marriage bites the dust. Lynne Curtin, the cuff selling, non-blinking, exercise fanatic from seasons four and five of RHOC, is planning to divorce her husband Frank. As you recall, the couple famously lived far above their means (which is apparently a qualification to be on the franchise), with Frank hiding the money woes from his wife and two daughters. The couple was even served with an eviction notice while being filmed for the show!
Yesterday Lynne announced, “After more than 20 years of marriage Frank and I have decided to go our separate way. I love Frank but it was time to go out on my own.”
“Who knows what the future holds, but I’m looking forward to doing the things that I want to do,” continues Lynne, adding that she has yet to file for divorce.
In a phone interview with the Orange County Register, Frank stated, “I’m not a willing participant in this. It hurts to even think about it or talk about it. Call me old-fashioned, but I take my vows very seriously.”
I must say that I love the conversations between Kim and KJ. Poor kid doesn’t even know he’s part of reality history…but at least he gets to wear a sweet cap. Kim’s excited about planning the wedding, but her mother is causing her major stress. Brielle is having her hair did done for her homecoming dance. Holy crap, for my high school dances, I didn’t have hair and make-up, I had my mom zipping up my JC Penny’s dress…and that’s it. Kim threatens Brielle’s boyfriend of two months, asking if he’s ever grabbed her daughter’s butt. Brielle can’t win, stating she’s never made out with her beau, but she has pecked him on the mouth. Kim is dreading having so many kids and parents at her house pre-dance, but it’s adorable to see Kroy’s relationship with his soon-to-be stepdaughter.
Chris Harrison, oh blue-eyed, well-dressed, always there with stellar love advice, Chris Harrison. Call me. As I’m sure y’all know, I was very upset to hear about the divorce of the Bachelor franchise’s most level-headed and handsome host. Of course, instead of letting him deal with his family problems behind closed doors, People Magazine wonders if he himself will be the next Bachelor. Um, have you seen him? While he’s a beyond fabulous host of the train wreck, he’s way too good to be an actual contestant. For shame!
The very classy Mr. Harrison manages to remain upbeat, telling the magazine, “Getting out of a 22-year relationship, having just announced my divorce to the world a week ago, having two kids and trying to start a new life, I’m thinking I wouldn’t exactly be a great candidate to be the bachelor right now or anytime soon.”
There are four very talented artists left on American Idol. Viewers are reminded that the final three get the homecoming of a lifetime. The event is marked with stellar judge and past winner performances. It’s almost time to crown the nation’s newest star. Pretty exciting stuff! Equally exciting? Ryan Seacrest seems to be feeling much better. The audience even gets treated to tickets for the upcoming tour.
The final four perform a Mamas and Papas tribute. It’s great, and reminds me again how badly I wish I could sing a note. Product placement abounds, and a Ford video is shown. The final contestants are excited to be in a commercial…it’s electric! Everyone touts saving the environment with Ford’s new electric car. It’s a cute video, but let’s get to the results please! Phillip Phillips is the first to face the music (literally). He sang “Have You Ever Seen the Rain” and gains mad praise from the judges. Randy Jackson calls his performance pitchy to start, but he certainly comes into his own. Jimmy loved it. His next time on stage, singing “Volcano” Randy touts that he’s listen to it all day long on his headphones. Jimmy is beyond impressed. Ryan sends him back to sofa to wait it out a little longer. Of course he does…
