My name is Erin and I am a former Jersey Shore fan. Okay, that’s over with. Phew!
Back when Nicole (Snooki) Polizzi was just a wee little pickle-eating, hot tub-defiling Jersey Shore cast member, we might have gazed into her future and thought: women’s prison? pole dancer? But I, for one, did not conjure up “self help guru.” Alas, that is the alternate universe we are living in, folks! (Wait – am I in Hot Tub Time Machine and just don’t know it yet?)
This week, Snooki has taken to Instagram to share the publication news of her fifth – yes, fifth – book, Strong Is the New Sexy: A Kick Ass Memoir. “My 5th book is ready for pre-sale & coming out officially October 13!!! Doing tons of book signings and can’t wait to meet you!” gushed Snooki.
Ever since the fallout from her Feb 7th Malibu car accident, which left one woman dead at the scene, Caitlyn Jenner has been battling a wrongful death suit and potential charges of vehicular manslaughter. The wrongful death suit, originally brought about by victim Kim Howe’s adult stepchildren, was thrown out of court.
We can’t say that we didn’t see this one coming. After word got out about Josh Duggar molesting his sisters (and others) many years ago, and along with the fact that Jim Bob and Michelle hid it from authorities, TLC decided after much consideration that it would be best for them to cancel 19 Kids and Counting. However, since the news of the show’s demise broke, there have also been rumors floating around claiming that the Duggar girls could be getting their own show.
Well, turns it out it was not a rumor. Yep, TLC announced recently that both Jill (Duggar) Dillard and Jessa (Duggar) Seewald will be starring in their very own series special. While we are sure that this will make some fans very happy, we’re also certain that others are not going to be so happy about this news. Which side are you on?

Watch out Meghan Edmonds! The Kardashiansare hot on your trail with some cancer testing of their own. Alas, the Keeping Up with the Kardashians stars have just a teensy bit more social media presence than Mrs. Edmonds the Third, so their “journey” might just overshadow the RHOC storyline that almost was not.
On Tuesday of this week, TMZ reports that Kris Jenner joined her daughters Khloeand Kim Kardashian on a trip to Pathway Genomics in San Diego with Botched doctor Dr. Paul Nassif (huh?), to undergo genetic testing for BRCA1, a mutation that may cause ovarian and breast cancer in some people. This is the same testing Angelina Jolie underwent before she opted for a preventative double mastectomy.
Now that we’re heading into the home stretch of this season’s Real Housewives of Orange County, it’s apparently not all Aries parties and Woo-Hoo-ing for (former?) besties Shannon Beador and Vicki Gunvalson. Though she stayed loyal to Vicki and her many delusions aboutBrooks Ayers despite the ladies’ growing skepticism of Brooks’ cancer status, Shannon revealed her own skepticism this week’s episode. Which has led to a more serious rift in their friendship since then, says Shannon.
Shannon argues that she was “loyal to a T” when it came to defending Vicki all season on RHOC. But she told E! News in an interview this week, “When you’re my friend, you’re my friend for life. It’s just that there were so many different, inconsistent stories.”
