The all new second season of ABC’s True Beauty is set to premiere tonight at 10 pm ET, right after the Bachelorette.
Similar to the first season, the 10 gorgeous models are made to think they’re competing to become the “Face of Vegas” while secretly being judged on their inner beauty.
One person will be eliminated each week based on their behavior and where they ranked in each challenge. At the end of eight episodes, one winner will be declared after successfully demonstrating that their inner beauty matches their outer beauty. The winner will receive a $100,000 cash prize and a feature article in People magazine.
Vanessa Minnillo returns as the show’s host, and will co-judge alongside Carson Kressley and Beth Ostrosky Stern.

Move over Kardashians! There’s a new trashier family in town! Giving the Kardashians a run for their money are the Neiers sisters, the new stars of E! reality show – Pretty Wild.
While Kim Kardashian had to make a sex tape to get a reality show for her family. Alexis Neiers, 19, went a different route. Alexis, pictured on the far left, instead became part of a burglary ring now known as Hollywood Burglar Bunch. The burglar bunch stole clothes, jewelry and cash from the homes of celebrities such like Lindsay Lohan, Megan Fox and Brian Austin Green, Orlando Bloom, Rachel Bilson, and Audrina Patridge.
And while Pretty Wild seems to be doing well in ratings on the E! network, Alexis will be forced to take a break from the show. Despite her numerous pleas of innocence, TMZ is reporting the reality star pleaded guilty yesterday to robbing Orlando Bloom’s home and taking nearly $600,000 worth of items from Bloom.
Alexis was sentenced to 180 days in jail and also placed on three years felony probation. She has up to June 24 to surrender. Alexis is the first of the Burglar Bunch to receive her sentence. It is also said she had a very limited role compared to her peers involved in the crimes.
Starring alongside Alexis on Pretty Wild is her sister Gabby Neiers, 15, their family friend, Tess Taylor (real name Tess Adler), 20, and their pimp mother, former Playboy Playmate model Andrea Arlington, who gives all three girls Adderall every morning for their alleged ADD. Her father, Mikel Neiers, is a former director of photography for “Friends.”
And if you think Alexis is the only “star” of her family, you are mistaken. Tess,20, has posed nude for Playboy magazine, and recently had photos of her topless and doing drugs posted on TheDirty website. One of those photos is below.
TELL US: HAVE YOU SEEN AN EPISODE OF PRETTY WILD? WHAT DO YOU THINK OF THE SHOW?
There seems to be a trend with VH1 reality love shows, a contestant wins the heart of the bachelor, only to have him never call or contact her again.
Well the finale of Frank The Entertainer In A Basement Affairaired tonight with Kerry Schwartz winning the heart of Frank The Entertainer aka Frank Maresca. The story however ended a little differently as Frank called Kerry 3 days after picking her to break up with her, letting her know he was still in love with his ex-girlfriend.
This was the same guy who mentioned several times on the show that he was looking for “true love.” Evidently true love means a VH1 paycheck. Plus anyone else notice how he showed zero emotion over Felicia leaving? Perhaps that should have been a hint. In a new interview with VH1, Kerry talks about her heartbreak with Frank, the state of her friendship with Cathy, and what she hopes will happen in the future between her and Frank.
Excerpts from Kerry’s interview is below –
What has your communication with Frank been like since the show?
When the show first ended, it was great for about three days. But then, Frank broke up with me because he said he wanted to give his ex-girlfriend another chance. I feel like Frank didn’t really give me a chance at all. You know, I always wanted to make it work with Frank. We saw each other a few times after the show. It’s really hard to hang out in a normal environment because you’re constantly hiding from people and you have to keep it a secret, so we weren’t allowed to go out in public places and hang out like normal people and have fun together. We were stuck in a hotel room whenever we hung out, and there’s only so much you can do in a hotel room. I guess you can say we kept more of a phone relationship for a little while, but I started to give up on him being that he would always talk about how amazing his ex-girlfriend was, and I felt like he still wasn’t over her. He told me all the time he’s still in love with her mentally, whatever that means. I’m not really sure.
Have you talked to him recently?
We’d stopped talking for about two months, but yes. Frank and I still talk now, but we talk as friends. It’s kind of hard for me to talk on the phone with Frank though, because I really liked Frank, I don’t know about any of the other girls, but I did. He would just talk to me about hanging out with other girls in his hotel room and stuff like that, and I just didn’t want to hear that. I tried to not speak with him anymore for a little while, because I felt like every time I spoke to him it would just hurt my feelings.
Are there hurt feelings, or any resentment?
There’s no resentment, but I feel like Frank didn’t really give me a chance. I feel like on the show he saw that I was trying so hard with all these crazy challenges and all these other girls. I think if any woman goes through all those things for a guy, that should prove something to them, but sometimes I feel like maybe I just wasn’t enough for him.
Did competing on this show change your friendship with Cathy? You two came in as friends.
Before the show started, we made a pact that no matter what happened, we wouldn’t let it affect our friendship. When I found out that Cathy slept with Frank, I was really disappointed in her, but at the same time I was like, OK I have to think about the situation that we’re in. I thought about leaving for a second, but I thought I’d made it too far to leave. Cathy and I are really, really good friends. We’ve grown so much closer since the show is over. Frank actually didn’t want me to talk to Cathy or any of the other girls after the show, but I absolutely fell in love with so many of the other girls on the show. I love so many of them. There’s no way that I wouldn’t keep in touch with them, so that’s also like a really big issue. Cathy and I talk to each other every day. We see each other all the time, and she’s just a really great person.
Do you really see yourself staying in touch with Frank?
At the end of the day, I’ll always remain friends with Frank. I’m always here for him. We’ll see what happens. I’m still talking to him, so we’ll see what happens. I think I have a better relationship with Cathy right now than I do with Frank, though.
It also seems Kerry has gotten over her shyness as she posted some very sexy photos of herself on her facebook page. Some of the photos are below -

The 30-year-old Philadelphia restaurant owner gave a new interview to PEOPLE magazine, during which she discussed her recent elimination and her upcoming wedding plans to Phillies pitcher Kyle Kendrick. One subject or name that kept coming up was however that of her cast-mate, James Clement. James who was a past fan favorite and is on the “good” Heroes team, seems to be losing some fans this season based on his recent behavior on the show, which included constantly yelling at his team-mates.
According to Stephenie, she believes both James and other fan favorite Rupert Boneham have developed big egos.
Excerpts from Stephenie’s interview below -
Did you know your number was up?
I knew I was going. Our only hope was to switch Candice and Cirie to come with me, Colby, Tom, and we gave them a really good deal. We said, “Come with us and you won’t see your name come the merge. We’ll go to the final five and fight it out, whereas they go with the other people, they have ties on the other side, so they will use you to get to the merge but you can pretty much expect to be gone then.”
Did you know you would attract the ire of Rupert and James?
It was weird. It’s like, where did that come from? I didn’t know James at all. I didn’t even know his last name. I was just trying to get to know him and he just got in his little clique with Amanda and JT and Rupert, and Rupert didn’t like me. I didn’t even have a conversation with Rupert, hardly, but it was tough out there. Rupert and James are really high on themselves, so very flattered by themselves and very arrogant. If you threatened their popularity or strength, they kept away from you.
James seemed upset that the group agreed to listen to “one voice” in the challenge but you spoke.
That wasn’t what the fight was. It was “one voice” and the “one voice” was stumped! What happens when it’s one voice but that one voice can’t figure out the puzzle? We were all sitting there like, where is the direction coming from? So Candice, actually, took the lead, which you didn’t see, and it was never actually right or almost right. At the end of the challenge James is cursing and screaming at everyone and he looks at me and I was like, “Listen, I wasn’t the only one talking,” and he took that like I was saying, “It wasn’t me,” when I wasn’t saying that at all. He just lost it and started bringing up Palau. He may go further than me on the show but he went from the good guy to the biggest egomaniac, rudest bully anyone has ever seen.
Did it lift your spirits to have Tom defending you at Tribal Council?
That was amazing. Him and Colby to be such gentlemen and put their heads on the chopping block even more than they already were, it just shows the character and the type of people they are.
How are wedding plans going with your fiancé, Phillies pitcher Kyle Kendrick?
I will be married this November in Napa Valley and we are trying to figure out the honeymoon and my dress, we have an awesome wedding planner out of San Francisco, and it’s a lot of fun. This is my second time so I want to do a smaller wedding but Kyle has so many friends and family and so do I so it’s just going to be one big amazing party! We’re really excited.
TELL US – WHAT ARE YOUR THOUGHTS ON THIS ALL STAR GAME? HAS JAMES BECOME A VILLAIN?
The finale of Tough Love 2 aired two nights ago with most of the ladies walking away from the show with what seemed to be true love; we now have the updates of each lady and their relationship status.
Surprisingly, majority of the ladies are no longer with the men they gave their rings to at the ring ceremony, but the good news is most of them are in new relationships and maintain that their love lives have changed for the better. The only woman that is still with the man she chose is actually Angel, the former stripper and single mom. Angel and Liz are also now living together in California.
There seems to be a recurring theme amongst the ladies, which is the men from the show acted differently once the cameras were gone, and most of them were not genuinely interested in pursuing a relationship.
Status With Man From Show – No Longer Together, Relationship Status Now – Single
What Happened After Show – Jason and I saw each other a few times after boot camp, but it never got serious and I haven’t dated anyone else since the show!
Status With Man From Show – No Longer Together, Relationship Status Now – In A Relationship
