VH1‘s newest reality TV stars Nicole Murphy, Andrea Kelly, and Jessica Canseco continue to open up about their public divorces. Nicole is the one who brought them all together for Hollywood Exes. She introduced Mayte Garcia, ex-wife to Prince, Sheree Fletcher, who was married to Will Smith, and Jessica to Andrea in the season premiere.
“All of women have been in similar situations where we’ve all been married to high profile men. We can connect on different levels and can experience some of the same things. Andrea turns on the radio and R Kelly is playing or Mayte hears Prince playing in a store,” says Nicole. ”You get used to it and it becomes part of your life.”
Nicole, Andrea, and Jessica talk to RadarOnline about dealing with public divorces.
Nicole‘s divorce from Eddie Murphy had its awkward moments in the beginning, but they’re on good terms now.
“I am not complaining because I have had a great and happy experience with my ex-husband and I have no regrets,” says Nicole. ”Eddie and I are friends; he’s my babies’ daddy so we speak to each other and have a great relationship and I think that’s important when you have children involved. We can be in the same room and hang out, it’s all good!”
If you blinked, grabbed a snack, or called Iowa to warn them Farrah was on the way, you probably missed Catelynn‘s contribution to this episode.
Butch announces he’s off to find a job. That’s the end of the Butch scenes, which is a darn shame. Next week’s previews show Butch flabbergasted that somebody ran a background check on him, so he’s either having issues finding employment or he’s heading back to the slammer.
Catelynn’s grandmother comes for a visit. While she’s there, Catelynn and Tyler‘s adoption counselor Dawn calls to invite them to attend an adoption support group meeting. I was really hoping Catelynn’s grandmother and Dawn were setting Catelynn up, and instead of support group, they were whisking her away to What Not To Wear.
Sean is strong, funny, and sensitive. Emily thinks he’d be a great father figure to Ricki. Jef has style. Jef is kind and thoughtful, with a great sense of humor. Emily feels as if Jef gets her like no one else ever has.
Emily’s favorite things about Arie are his upper lip, his bottom lip, and his tongue. Emily cries when she thinks about Arie. Is it because she knows he’s the one or because she knows he’s not the one and she’s already mourning those kisses?
Holy smokes, the American Idol rumors are running rampant! Adam Lambert is reportedly being considered as a judge for season 12 of the reality competition show that made him famous. It would be an easy switch – Jennifer Lopez, who wants to be done with American Idol, moves out and Adam Lambert moves in.
“He personifies the show, and will be a popular choice right from the start,” an unnamed source is quoted telling E! News. “He knows what it’s like to be on the receiving end of the judges’ comments, he has a human touch, and they know they can’t go wrong if they bring him on. He would be able to bring a unique perspective to the show. People love him.”
Big Brother 14 features 12 new houseguests, each hoping to be the next big reality TV star and $500,000 richer. The CBS summer hit premieres Thursday, July 12 at 9 pm ET.
It wouldn’t be Big Brother without twists, right? The four “huge surprises” are actually four returning houseguests.
CBS explains, “In a series first, four of the most successful players to ever enter the BIG BROTHER house, will return to play their own game and for their own separate prize. The identities of the four returning players and details surrounding their mission inside the house will be revealed during the season premiere.”
Executive producer Allison Grodner guarantees that none of these players are from last season, which also included past contestants. This means no Rachel!!
Paging allBig Brother fans! Big Brother 14 premieres Thursday, July 12 at 9 pm ET on CBS. That’s right, there’s only one more week to sleep and pay attention to your families!

Big Brother 14 will have the most hamsters ever with 12 new houseguests and 4 returning houseguests (the four HUGE surprises we were promised). Grumble, bitch, moan, grumble – shoot me if one of the four is the highly annoying Rachel Reilly! “Four epic players – including fan favorites and winners – are coming in with their own agenda,” says executive producer Allison Grodner. “It’s a game within a game, if you will.” Allison describes this season’s house décor as “urban pop” and “very youthful.”
Not surprisingly, ABC will air the fall wedding. “It will be filmed as a special, and Chris Harrison will host,” a source tells Life & Style. ”I want it to be a big celebration,” reveals Ashley. “My dream is for it to be outside in a big open field, very down-to-earth.”
JP says, “I want to give her the wedding of her dreams and will be involved as much or as little as she wants.”
The season finale of The Bachelorette will air on SUNDAY, July 22 at 8 ET, followed by the LIVE After the Final Rose special at 10 ET.
The Bachelorette and her chosen one (and the sore loser) usually pre-tape the After the Final Rose special, which includes an update on their lives since the most romantic proposal ever. This season, Emily Maynard and her final guy will be LIVE immediately following the final rose ceremony. The last rose will go to either Arie Luyendyk, Jr., Sean Lowe, or Jef Holm.
Why the LIVE show? Who does she pick?!? Warning – spoilers ahead!
