Our favorite reality TV stars can’t get enough of the spotlight during their regularly scheduled time slots, so they take to Twitter to share even more of their daily lives with us. And we love them for it! Here’s a roundup of some of our favorite photos from the Twitterverse this week! Enjoy!
Padma Lakshmi introduces this week's guest judge to the eleven remaining contestants, season four winner Stephanie Izard. Stephanie is the only woman to ever win Top Chef.
The challenge: The chefs may cook whatever they like but every ingredient in the kitchen is wrapped in Reynolds Wrap (shameless product placement). The chefs blindly choose their ingredients. If they unwrap it, they must use it. Also, foil is the only cooking vessel that they are allowed to use.
Danyele McPherson - cannellini bean stew with bacon asiago cheese, and tomatillo. While Danyele was thrown off by the tomatillo, Stephanie thinks it improved the dish. Micah Fields - grilled lamb with tomato fennel panzanella. The lamb is rare. Stefan – hot smoked salmon with german potato salad served with champagne. John Tesar - beed egg drop soup with braised pineapple. Stephanie likes the pineapple and the beef combination.
Brooke - bacon roasted yams with bacon, onion, and apple salad. The raw onion nearly kills Padma. Josh Valentine - roasted chicken with potatoes, poblano, tomatillo, and carrots. Stephanie appreciates the small hint of heat. Kristen Kish - almond and chocolate sponge cake. Not only did Kristen mix the ingredients in a foil bowl but she also baked the cake in a foil pan. The texture of the cake is great. Kristen continues to impress me.
Brooke and Cody announced the news by posting a photo of their sweet baby girl on their Facebook fan page. Born on December 18, Ryley Jean joins big brother Brody Ryan. Brody will be three in January. While Brody is a combination of Brooke and Cody's first names, Ryley was created by merging the couple's middle names, which are Ryan and Ashley.
Brooke and Cody were featured on Season 2B. The couple got married before Brody was born (a first on 16 and Pregnant) and bought a barn house (the barn is the only reason I remember these two!).
According RadarOnline, Emily and Jef were "getting very cozy" in Charlotte last week. Radar's source said, "Emily sat on a stool at the bar while Jef stood facing her between her legs. It was obvious they were having some sort of deep conversation, but Emily also had her arms hanging around his neck affectionately at one point."
According to the source, Jef and Emily tried to keep a low profile. As if. "I was surprised at how into each other they were acting because it was clear that they were trying to go unnoticed and didn't want attention from anyone," the source shared. "From what I could overhear, they were having a discussion about their relationship status."
Sigh. Hopefully it was a very short conversation that ended with Jef telling Emily, "Let's just be Facebook friends. I'll poke you every Tuesday night and sometimes on Saturday morning."
Teen Mom 2 star Kailyn Lowryrecently tweeted pictures of her latest tattoo, the beginning of a half-sleeve tattoo, on the inside of her bicep. Ouch!
The tattoo includes a pocket watch, roses, thorns, skulls, and an anchor. When asked about the meaning of the objects, Kailsaid, “It’s an anchor (for all those who have kept me grounded through my journey with MTV). And the pocket watch reads 10:05, the day I met Javi. The skull is for my past (skeletons in my closet).”
The tattoo reveal didn't come without criticism. Naturally. After a slew of hateful tweets, Kail responded with “I love when people think I want/need their approval to do something" and "Please, tell me more about how trashy my tattoos are & how ugly they will be when I'm 60. You don't HAVE to look at me. #movealongnow."
It's hard to believe that American Idol has been on the air for over 10 years. Around season eight, the American Idol judges started to change, which, in my opinion, changed the focus of the show. Sadly. It became more about the judges and less about the contestants.
Clay Aiken, the season two runner-up, recently shared his thoughts on the American Idol judges. When asked if he will return to the show to celebrate the 10th anniversary of his appearance on the show that gave him his big break, Clay said, "I don't know that I would commemorate it on the show. I don't know that they did it with Justin Guarini and all those folks."
Clay added, "But Idol back in those days was about the contestants. Kelly [Clarkson] and Justin and Tamyra [Gray] and Nikki McKibbin, they were all the stars of the show. And when I was on, Ruben [Studdard] and myself and Kimberley Locke were the stars of the show."
Definitely not shy about his opinion, Clay concluded, "Now Idol is about the judges. I don't even know if they remember there are contestants anymore."'
Last week, when Leslie showed her face at the country club's chili cook-off, Bonnie attacked. On her way out, Bonnie warned Cindy Davis to watch her back around Leslie. And Cindy just cannot understand why, so she invites Bonnie for drinks to talk about it. Cindy must be sloshed more than I realized, because I cannot believe she doesn't have a single clue as to why Leslie shouldn't be trusted. To drive home her point, Bonnie tells Cindy that Leslie told Connie Dieb she's been to rehab twice and nearly lost Alex because of it. A shaken Cindy denies the rumor.
I have to say, if she did go to rehab, it wasn't successful. When Cindy asks why Leslie would say such a thing, Bonnie simply says Leslie likes to tell wild stories.
Meanwhile, Melissa and Maddie audition swimsuit models for Melissa's upcoming swimsuit coverup fashion show. At the last minute, Melissa reveals she doesn't want to model in the show, as planned. Maddie tells her mom that she should represent the "old and saggy women."
MJ shares, "I took GG's side because Asa kept talking about Omid's nose." Mike pulls her aside and says, "Instead of you talking sense into your friend, you decide to take sides." When Mike takes issue with MJ's choice, she's all like, I'm no longer on GG's side because I'm not down with the violence.
Meanwhile, Reza Farahan and Asa are hiking on another hill. Asa tells Reza,"You f-ing missed the most epic shit. You know she attacked me? She starts taking off her earrings, and I'm like, 'What are you going to do with me? I can break you like a f-ing crispy cracker.'" Reza and Asa are both disappointed in MJ for siding with GG.
Reza tells us, "GG is like a pet venomous pet snake. They're pretty, you can feed them, you can take care of then, but eventually that snake will get you."
Back at Omid's house, GG arrives. Omid asks GG if she wants a burger or a dog… she answer beer. Mike shakes his head, saying, "I'm watching GG come into the BBQ and I'm thinking she'll be remorseful, hung over, something.. the first thing she asks for is a beer. This girl doesn't seem sorry at all. This is no joke… she put her hands on someone."
