The tenth season of Project Runway is upon us and I know you’re all excited about another season of mediocre designers with little to no talent. Well, we can at least hope some of them can sew a sleeve or a zipper.

Patently ignoring criticism for the past few seasons’ less than exciting talent pool, the show is going full-steam ahead with a new crop of designers who promise to be the best yet. Hopefully they’ll “Make it work.” At least Tim Gunn is still around.

Project Runway season 10 will premiere on Lifetime, July 19th at 9/8c.

Oh, Real Housewives of New Jersey – never a dull moment. Magazines and tabloid activities have been all the rage this season and Melissa Gorga isn’t about to get herself excluded from the ‘look at my cover!’ madness.

To prove that people want to put her on the cover of magazines just like a certain she who shall not be named sister-in-law from hell who recently agreed to go to therapy, Melissa unveiled the cover of Boardwalk Journal Magazine on Twitter.

No good deed goes unpunished! Following last week’s epic Jersey Shore bar brawl, the cast members are being taken to court! Justin Viterito and Devon Chichele, two of the victims in the fight, are planning a massive lawsuit against Ronnie Ortiz-Magro, J-Woww‘s boyfriend Roger Matthews, MTV, Viacom (the company that owns MTV), the bar’s bouncer, and Bamboo Bar where the brawl took place!

The fight began innocently enough, but quickly spiraled out of control. According to TMZ, Justin Viterito was drinking with Ronnie and Roger but when Devon Chichele approached to find his friend a member of the Jersey Shore entourage “pushed him in the back,” says their lawyer Matthew DiBrino.

Mr. DiBrino alleges that Justin went to help Devon but was physically assaulted by Ronnie in the process after the bouncer held Justin in a headlock allowing Ronnie to hit him in the face.

Patti Stanger doesn’t do things small or low-key. The Millionaire Matchmaker star can’t just throw a typical birthday party and call it a day – she has to be an overachiever.

A handful of celebrities turned out to party with Patti and her crew.  Above is Alexis Bellino of Real Housewives of Orange County.  Below you’ll find birthday girl Patti Stanger, Vicki Gunvalson, Natalie Nunn, Natalie Getz, and more!

My oh my oh my!  People certainly do some stupid stuff, don’t they?  Francesca Eastwood, daughter of cinema icon Clint and star of the new reality show Mrs. Eastwood & Company, has come under fire lately…and literally!

TMZ is reporting that the nineteen-year-old has been receiving death threats via Facebook and Twitter after her controversial photographer beau Tyler Shields snapped pictures of Francesca destroying a $100,000 (in my Dana Wilkie voice) Hermes Birkin bag…all in the name of art.  The photos show Francesca taking a chainsaw to the bag before setting it on fire.  The pictorial enraged fashionistas and hard-working folks alike…you know, the people for whom that bag’s price tag would equate to years and years (and years) of paychecks.

I’ll have to admit that I, unlike Slade Smiley, left the O.C. for a while.  Oh, I still watched (like one of Pavlov’s dogs when the first few tings of the theme music begins), but I was indifferent to it.  Lauri Waring was gone.  A once biting but funny Tamra Barney became just down right mean, ladies whose names I can’t even remember (Quinn who?) and women whose faces didn’t move were shuffled in and out, and, well, Slade stayed.  I was tired.  But then something amazing happened in the form of this season.

I’m not going to give all the credit to Dr. and Mrs. Disgustingly Rich and Fabulous but Incredibly Normal Dubrow (aka Heather), although they deserve a bunch.  This season on Real Housewives of Orange County, I’ve got Briana Culberson giving hell to her mom’s love tank and affirmation hoarding beau.  My hilariously crass, semi-trashy, rhinestone-studded Tamra is back with a vengeance, and–even better–she’s friends with a kooky Gretchen Rossi.  Minus a few extras (and even Jesus Barbie brings at least one laugh an episode), the show is actually fun again.  But I digress.  Let’s dish deets on the wedding ceremony of one of my current favorite housewives, Briana.  Okay, so technically she’s the daughter of a housewife, but she’s now more of one than her mom!

Briana and mom Vicki Gunvalson spoke with Star/RadarOnline.com about Briana’s big day…which was a long time coming for Vicki.  Viewers are watching weekly the relationship between Briana and Vicki get increasingly tense after Briana and supposed boyfriend Ryan Culberson drop the bomb that they got hitched in Vegas at a drive-thru wedding chapel.

Vicki tells the magazine, “My anger and my disappointment at what Briana did almost destroyed our relationship.  We didn’t speak for two months. But time heals, and our relationship is stronger than ever.”

Briana agrees, “My mom has been amazing. It’s been really fun planning the wedding with her and just having her by my side.”

The ceremony took place on May 12 at the Bacara Resort and Spa in Santa Barbara.  The bride wore a gown of Italian lace and carried a bouquet of roses as the pair read their vows at sunset.  Missing from the guest list?  Vicki’s castmates.  She explains, “[I]t had to be about Briana and Ryan. It is not my party.”

Nothing Bethenny Frankel does is an accident, and it’s starting to look like making the demise of her marriage a central plot line to her reality show may have been a segue into its real life dissolution. The ever reputable Star magazine reports that Bethenny and husband Jason Hoppy are headed for divorce court with a source claiming it was “imminent.”

Yesterday was quite a day for Kim Zolciak! The Don’t Be Tardy For The Wedding star’s garage caught on fire!

TMZ reports that the Roswell Fire Department got a call around 9:35am yesterday morning to send a truck to the scene where a four-wheeler was burning. The fire department was able to extinguish the fire and no one was hurt.

I would make a joke about white trash and four-wheelers catching on fire, because I’m from WV and can do things like that – but house fires are serious. Let’s just say: good thing no one was injured and the house didn’t end up in flames.

Kim tweeted her appreciation, “Shout out to Roswell Fire Dept for their quick response this morning God is always on my side! #grateful!” We’re grateful too.
