Here’s the most important news you’ll read today: Snooki tells In Touch that she’s gained only 15 pounds during her pregnancy. And it’s all in her chest! She is excited however to get a mommy makeover once she’s done breast feeing, excitedly telling the magazine she “wants to get a boob job.”
She’s also super sure that she’ll lose all her pregnancy weight “The baby weight will just drop off!” she says. Let’s wait until you actually have the baby first, Snooki!
In non boob-related Snooki news, new details are emerging on her suit against a lisencing company, SRG Ventures, who she sued in October 2011. The Jersey Shore star claims the company promised her she’d make 100 million over three years, instead made a meager $250k. The company countersued for $7m claiming Snooki’s antics made her really difficult to book contracts for, as no conservative brands wanted to be associated with her.
The Huffington Post reports that she did not want to be associated with alcohol brands (which is just ridiculous) and that she is a “crowd favorite” and “now one of the most recognizable faces in the entertainment industry.” Recognizable for getting wasted on television on a weekly basis! No wonder this company couldn’t find any jobs for Snooki.
Her lawyers see it as a matter of the firm misrepresenting their reach:
“The court papers allege that SRG lied about their connections in the industry and failed to secure licensing agreements in accordance with the parties’ written contract. We intend to litigate this case aggressively — SRG’s attempt to take advantage of Ms. Polizzi will not be tolerated.”

You guys, a new non-Housewives, non-real estate, non-cooking show will attempt to stay on Bravo for longer than 5 seconds in a few weeks! Miss Advised, a show following three “relationship experts” and their dating attempts will premiere on Bravo June 18. The women talked to Wetpaint about the show and how it’s a bit different from Bravo’s previous attempts at the non-housewives niche. For one, the three women don’t interact each other.
They all live in different cities: Emily Morse, a “sexpert” lives in San Francisco; matchmakerAmy Laurentin New York and Internet celebrity (I refuse to refer to her as a relationship expert for a few reasons) Julia Allison in Los Angeles and there won’t be any staged “girls vacations” or “lunches” like we see on other shows. The other difference is we won’t see the women try to solve other’s problems, but instead, they’ll have to tackle themselves.
Amy says, “It wasn’t easy for us to expose our flaws. At the end of the day, people are either going to love us or hate us for it — but one thing’s for sure, we don’t walk around acting like our poop doesn’t stink!”
At this point, I hope you all realize we’re just pawns in the Bethenny Frankel Public Relations cycle. Does it matter if she’s getting divorced? Not really, as long as you are aware that she has a new talk show. I wouldn’t be surprised if Bethenny released news she was having a sex change at this point. Anything to get this talk show in the news and stay there until the six week cycle is up.
The trailer is out, and it’s okay. I’m frankly surprised she went with this old school format. In my opinion, Bethenny should have done a Chelsea Lately type of show that was better suited to her raunchy sense of humor. Something like “Watch What Happens” or even Kathy Griffin‘s show, something quirkier, edgier, funner. Is she trying to change her demographic? I’m not sure. In any case, find it, weigh in, and don’t forget to comment and tell me what a jealous hater I am for making sarcastic comments about Bethenny. I’ll wait.

While she may have been ousted from Real Housewives of Atlanta, Sheree Whitfield remains as delightfully delusional as ever, telling S2S Magazine that any new cast members added for the show’s fifth season will be mere additions, not replacements. See, there is only one Sheree!
“No one can replace me. I can’t be replaced.” Well, that’s true. Who else would be able to produce something like She By She Broke, our Mary’s favorite fashion line? To those who say she cried and asked for her job back, Sheree says “as if”. You see my character. I’m not even that girl.”
It seemed like everyone on the East Coast this weekend dedicated their Memorial Day to grilling meats and seeing Beyonce in Atlantic City. Kim Kardashian, never one to shy from a bikini photo op, made it in, to make a few dollars at a random hotel pool, and also actually saw the concert. She used her Kanye West connection and got backstage and hung out with the queen.
Some random PR person from the Kardashian camp, aka a random ‘source’ tells US Weekly that the girls get along just fine: “Kim thought it was such a great show. “There’s always some random rumors there is tension between them and there totally isn’t! Kim had so much fun.”
It was bound to happen, ladies; you start raking in the dough and eventually your ex-husband will come knocking and want some. Basketball Wives cast member Kenya Bellis feeling the sting of her newfound independent paycheck now that her ex-husband, basketball player Charlie Bell is demanding spousal support.
See, while Charlie makes a modest $100k playing basketball in Italy, it’s nowhere near the lifestyle he was accustomed to while playing for the Golden State Warriors, and it also doesn’t touch Kenya’s alleged reality star salary of $300k for her first season of Basketball Wives (a figure she denies).
If you’re a child of the 90s (like me), you may have become hooked on reality television via MTV’s groundbreaking (at the time) show, The Real World. While the show has now become what television critic Andy Denhart calls a “frat party,” when it first aired it was a far more interesting look into the lives of people in their 20s. In Denhart’s Daily Beast article, he nails it when he points out that in the past, you had to have a life to get on the show, and now getting on the show is your life.
The Real World’s first few seasons made an attempt to be socially aware; who can forget Season 1’s Kevin Powell arguing in the street with the “fish out of water” cast mate Julie over race issues? That would literally be unheard of in the Real World that exists today unless major amounts of alcohol were involved. Denhart says the major turning point for the series was its first Las Vegas season, the one at the Palms that gave the world one of its biggest D-listers, Trishelle Cannatella, and I would agree. Here is where I just had to tune out, and where most people apparently started to tune in.
If you thought the Real Housewives of New York was going to get less dramatic following the firings of Jill Zarin,Alex McCord, and Kelly Bensimon, you’d be wrong. Rather than getting classier, the show is probably going to look a lot more like the menopausal, passive aggressive version of Bad Girls Club. The show premieres in two weeks and already, the ladies are taking shots at each other in the press for truly pointless things like their premiere parties.
Rob Shuter of the Huffington Post, who love him or hate him, does appear to have a direct line into the RHONY world, reports that the upcoming season will be Ramona Singer and Sonja Morgan versus the rest of the gang, which isn’t surprising. As far as Countess LuAnn, she remained more opportunistic, as she usually is, and stuck with the new blood, and the anonymous cast member tells Rob “The Countess, who has tried to stay neutral in the past, was forced to choose between the new ladies and her old cast mates … and picked the former.”
