No, no, no, no, no and NO. NO. I can’t. It’s just…wow. So allow me to preface before I get to the meat of this story, I am not a big Olympic watcher for games past. I know, how very un-American. However, after being chastised repeatedly by people for choosing Friends reruns over past opening ceremonies, I dedicated myself to watching every last event London had to offer. I’ve watched boxing, I caught the kayaking prelims, I was out of my seat for volleyball matches, I have almost thrown my laptop when seeing spoilers. It’s been ah-mazing.
Of course, everyone is always all about gymnastics and the swimming. Oh, the swimming. Sure I knew who Michael Phelps was, but who knew he had a teammate who was as easy on the eyes as Ryan Lochte? Sure, when he talks he may not sound like the sharpest tool in the shed, but oh, those baby blues! So imagine my shock/horror/dismay/sadness/insert drmatic word here when I was stalking him online and found out that he may or may not be seeing K. Michelle. Yes, that K. Michelle. Of train wreck Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta fame. That one. Gahhh!
Kalon paired up with the all American equestrian (and super tan) LindziCox on the Bachelor Pad. It seems that everyone’s favorite d-bag and the doe-eyed, innocent girl-next-door have more than a working relationship to win the ABC’s cash prize. Could lurve be in the works for this mismatched pair? Perhaps they are better suited than I think…after all, Lindzi entered Ben’s season on a horse, while Kalon swooped in on Emily in a helicopter…
Look out Dancing With the Stars fans! The All-Stars edition is going to bring the drama…and the professional dancers’ A game.
Veteran pro Cheryl Burke is concerned about how to step up her game. It’s all about costumes, choreography, and celebrity. The three C’s I guess you could say. And Cheryl should know…three of the returning All-Stars graced the dance floor as partners with this pro.
And now the real reasons come out regarding exiting American Idol judges. While Steven Tyler allegedly wasn’t asked back for next season, he’s not at all upset. In fact, Steven calls the show not his “cup of tea.”
Not that I’m surprised, but Steven has said that the show was basically just a paycheck that held him over while negotiating through the drama his Aerosmith band mates. Who knew American Idol could serve as just an interim distraction while he got his band back together?!
Not only is E! correspondent Giuliana Rancic expecting a baby with husband Bill Rancic via gestational surrogate, she’s also got an upcoming series on NBC called Ready for Love which she’ll co-host with Bill. What more could a woman want? How about Kris Jenner as a bestie? Umm….
It turns out that the two ladies are not just part of the E! Network together (or, let’s face it, the Kardashian Network), they are also really close friends. Who knew?
So the big question is, who will round out the judges’ panel? While rumors run rampant, I can say that there will likely be two seats filled. Why, you ask? It appears that longtime Idol fixture and judge Randy Jackson will be transitioning into a mentor role. He certainly has the credentials, and the contestants would surely benefit from his knowledge.
Does Jef Holm have a twin brother? I can’t help but think he really is a genuinely great person. After winning BacheloretteEmily Maynard’s heart, the happy couple is now in Ghana checking on two water wells built by Jef’s charity People Water. The newly engaged couple were joined by the charity’s co-founder Cody Barker and Creative Director Bronson Christensen.
The charity markets purified water to stores like Whole Foods, and it donates the same amount of water sold to those in need across the world. Swoon!
Jennifer Del Rio from 16 and Pregnant has fled her home state of Florida with her twins to get away from her children’s father. You may recall this happy couple from their episode when her then boyfriend Joshua Smith left her on the side of the road before speeding off with his children in the back seat. He’s a classy guy.
The now eighteen-year-old mother is now with her kids in Illinois, citing her ex’s abusive ways as her reasoning for getting the heck out of dodge. Both were arrested (at separate times) in 2011 alleging battery against the other, a claim Jennifer says is totally false.
