Judging from your comments, I think we can safely say that this season of Top Chef was a dud. Whether, it was the lack of any stand-out “personalities” on the cast, or the heavy amount of advertising for Texas, something was off about the show’s ninth season. It lacked the show’s usual addictive quality and there was no one to root for.
On last night’s finale, the reliable Paul and the talented but prickly Sarah went head to head, creating a four-course menu and “restaurant of their dreams” in Vancouver. They were given sous chefs for the task, which both chefs correctly guessed, were their former contestants. It turned out that not only was it their former rivals, but it also included three contestants that didn’t even make it into original sixteen and two master chefs, Barbara Lynch and Marco Canora.

Get your pickle jokes ready, folks! It’s looking like the rumors are true and Jersey Shorestar Snooki is pregnant, despite vehemently denying it. We reported yesterday that Snooki’s motivation for hiding the pregnancy was because she had promised the exclusive scoop to USWeekly, including a cover.
And according to a new report by TMZ , Snooki had other reasons for wanting to keep her pregnancy a secret. See, Snooki is also bit superstitious and didn’t want reveal the pregnancy before the three month mark, as many women do. Snooki was already pregnant when she visited Sirius / XM Radio at the beginning of February and had to answer questions about her pregnancy rumors, during which, she denied being preggos and pretended to be offended.
The official announcement is expected to come from the Snooki camp very soon. In the meantime, below are new photos of Snooki taken this week which seem to be showing a baby bump!
This will definitely change the direction of Snooki’s spin-off with JWoww, which began shooting in Jersey City this week. In an interview with US magazine, Snooki may have given us a small hint about her condition when she mentioned there would be less of the non-stop partying viewers have watched her indulge in, on Jersey Shore. She explains, “We want it to be different than Jersey Shore, so it’s not always going to at the club, drinking and partying. It’s the first time I’m going to be on my own for real. You’ve only seen the party side of us.”
If the rumors are right, the side of Snooki we’ll see is her maternal one, shopping for Liz Lange and heading to Lamaze class. One indication that the rumors might be right on target is Snooki’s unusual silence on her Twitter page where she usually posts many mundane updates a day. She may be keeping quiet until her big reveal.

It’s not looking good for The Bachelor‘s Ben Flajnikand his rumored fiancé, Courtney Robertson. With two shows left in the sixteenth (time flies!, no?) season, reports are already emerging that the couple is already having a rough time in the real world.
Last week, there were reports that Ben was chasing rumored runner-up Lindzi Coxafter being turned off by Courtney‘s behavior on the show. This week, Us Weekly is reporting that Ben was spotted canoodling with several different women. There was even some funky dancing! Even more damning, the latest issue of the mag has photos of Ben kissing two of these mystery women on the same day–Feb. 18–at different times. Yikes.
It’s not clear how many people spilled their story, but it gets pretty detailed. The witness explains a night out, in great detail saying, “Ben seemed pretty toasted, and this woman in red pants came up to him. It looked like an altercation at first, then he kissed her on the mouth and hugged her. She wrapped her arms completely around him and embraced him. After the kiss, she walked the other way.”
While, the report says Ben left the bar with two girls, he only took one girl home, who was not the red pants girl described above, and who he had apparently met while in Las Vegas for Valentine’s Day. Is there any greater indication that Ben is cheating other than the fact he went to Las Vegas on Valentine’s Day? If your significant other is heading to the sluttiest city on earth without you on Valentine’s Day, then it’s time to break up.
Anyway, luckily our onlooker continued to observe what Ben and his friend were up to. He said, “Ben and this girl looked like they were having a good time. They were doing weird dance moves, laughing and joking.” Allegedly, the woman stayed at Ben’s apartment and even had to do a walk of shame and go home in the same clothes as the night before!
Not content with his hook up, Ben reportedly had another woman over the next night. A nosy neighbor also reported this and their grossness in a nearby park, revealing that “The woman’s hands were all over Ben’s body and his hands were on her ass the entire time.”
Let me remove that image from your memory bank by telling you why Ben is acting like a college kid on spring break. Again, it’s stressed that he just didn’t like what he saw on the show. The source explains, “Ben began having issues with what he saw. Instead of talking to Courtney about it, he just started avoiding her. They haven’t split, but he basically stopped talking to her.” I’ll have to assume he is waiting to ask Bachelor host, Chris Harrison permission to speak with her.
Despite her reputation as an ice queen, poor Courtney is heartbroken. An insider says, ““Courtney did develop feelings for Ben. She cares for him and wants to make it work. [But] Courtney is really frustrated. She’s trying to figure things out, but he isn’t talking to her.” I’d imagine anyone would be frustrated after working that hard to get a guy on national television. Ben’s close friends, who have talked to tabloids about his relationship, say that nothing has officially ended, but it’s just as well.
“They have not had a breakup talk, but it’s been very tense between them,” a source says. “She feels very disconnected from him, and he can’t stand confrontation.”
A rep for Ben has responded to the rumors in Life & Style, claiming Ben is not cheating and that a recent photo of Ben kissing another woman were misinterpreted, as well as the visits from lady friends. It turns out Ben has two male roommates and the girls may have visited them.
The statement reads: “The photo is of two friends who have known each other for years and are together in a social setting, surrounded by a group of friends. Ben did not take any girls back to his apartment alone. It was a group setting every time. Ben has never condoned cheating.”
And finally, in what is perhaps ABC’s attempt to throw off viewers, Courtney, was pictured trying on a wedding dress yesterday in Beverly Hills, with paparazzi in tow!
This is, all the more odd, as the Bachelor contestants are placed under very strict rules and guidelines, meaning there’s no way in heck ABC would allow, Courtney, a finalist, to be pictured trying on a wedding dress, a week before the finale, unless they were in on it. Some fans of the show have wondered whether Bachelor insider, Reality Steve, actually got the ending wrong this season and perhaps Lindzi Cox ends up the winner!

Oh ladies of Survivor, did any of you ever watch an episode before coming on this show? Perhaps you did, as you finally made some headway on last night’s episode.
A storm’s a brewin’ on the beach, and Colton invites the women to the men’s camp, which has more shelter to survive the elements. The women politely decline, because… They. Are. Tough. The women are freezing and wind-blown, when the downpour begins. They are huddled together under a flimsy palm-frond tent. Good times! Thankfully, the Salani make it through the night. They are cold, hungry, and tired, and with their fire gone, they don’t know what they’ll be eating. Troyzan and Colton allow the women to come dry off by their roaring fire. Of course the men have fire…they are a cohesive team. Some of the women are proud they didn’t cave in to sleep at the guy’s camp, but they have no shame in using their fire. Hairless Matt is not amused to find boobs in his camp.

Guess what – 16 & Pregnant is back! The fourth season of the controversial show will chronicle twelve new teen girls, as they struggle through pregnancy and the dramatic ups and downs associated with having a child as a young parent – including navigating complicated relationships with parents, boyfriends, and friends.
This season will continue to show a variety of different choices the moms make, from adoption, abortion, and choosing to raise their child alone or with a partner.
One teen determines if adoption is the right choice for her child, because she fears she will be a single mother due to her boyfriends unreliability. Another teen mother will choose to keep her child while her sister, also pregnant, opted to have an abortion. And of course, one mother will be forced to put her college plans on hold after she decides to raise her baby.
The teens will also struggle in relationships with their own parents, who are often conflicted on how to help and support their child through teen pregnancy and parenthood. One teen will fight to raise her baby while dealing with her drug addicted parent, and another girl’s mother disapproves of her child’s father. There will be “baby daddy” drama, as the girls learn that being a teen mom is much harder than it looks! Which, you would think after many seasons of watching this show they would have figured out by now. Apparently, not.
Additionally, MTV has decided to take on Teen Mom 3! Hopefully, this crop will fare better than the originals and the juniors! I’m looking at you, Portwood and Evans!
A trailer for the new season of 16 & Pregnant is below!
The new season of 16 & Pregnant premiers on MTV Tuesday, March 27 at 10:00 p.m. ET.

Mugshot Marlo Hampton is all about clearing her goodish name and promoting herself, now that she has the illustrious and reputable platform of Real Housewives of Atlanta. The notorious Marlo, who certainly is the most notorious Housewife to grace the screens of Atlanta, is answering questions about her questionable past and encouraging us to reserve judgement. Yeah to the right!
Marlo wants you to know she isn’t full of excuses and fully embraces her ex-conn ex-life, but she wants to set the story straight and separate reality from reality TV. “There’s much more to Marlo than the 10 minutes” on the show, Marlo warns.
“I was surprised that they were focusing on my arrests,” Marlo admits. “Phaedra [Parks] with her husband and Sheree [Whitfield] has had her mix-up with the law. I was shocked about Kim [Zolciak] and the way she was talking about a Big Poppa when she dated a married man.”
Marlo says the trouble started in college. That was arrest number one. “While I was in college, that’s when I got into altercations and that was a felony charge. I was just mad at the world,” she explains to Sister 2 Sister. Marlo, apparently, attended University of South Florida and earned a BA in Interdisciplinary Science. Shocked? Yeah, me too!
Then, she was arrested and charged for check fraud. “I mis-balanced my check for the books I was buying. It was one check for me just being in college writing a check for one book. They blew that so out of proportion,” Marlo insists. “I wasn’t the best in math.” It’s called a calculator, m’dear!
Unfortunately, things spiraled from there and next thing she knew she had seven mugshots under her (then Forever 21) belt! “It’s important for people to know I was on house arrest. Four of those were probation violations and not new charges,” Marlo clarifies. Marlo claims in one arrest, the accuser actually defended her to the judge! “She had asked the judge to reduce my sentence and we made peace. We’re fine. We’ve talked several times.” I’m assuming she’s referring to her arrest for aggravated assault.
Marlo’s criminal past prevented her from getting a job so she had to hook up with wealthy sugar daddies so she opened her own business, a clothing store. “When I started taping with the show, I closed the store down.”
Marlo cautions viewers, “Don’t go by just what they see,” because there is definitely more to her than meets the eye! That’s exactly what I’m afraid of.
Moving right along, Sheree has a lot to say lately. Is it because she really, really can’t afford to get fired wants to secure a place in Season 5? Taking to her Bravo Blog, she is dishing on the fight with Marlo, the trip to Africa, and the comments about Kim!
According to Sheree, the tension began at the airport. “Upon seeing Marlo, I knew instantly that there would be some drama, because she was not invited by Phaedra, the host. Why was no one informed that she would be coming on the trip? I knew she felt the need to do something to get attention!”
Sheree claims the dinner party invite debacle occurred when her friend Kevin called last-minute and asked her to include Cynthia in the invitation. “I didn’t think to invite Cynthia [Bailey], because I was sure she wouldn’t attend without NeNe [Leakes], and I certainly wasn’t going to invite Nene. We had not spoken since the argument a few months ago and after the disrespectful way she acted at Kim’s friend’s house in Miami last year, it just wasn’t happening.”
“As we are getting ready for dinner, my friend Kevin calls, who also knows Cynthia and NeNe, and asks me to invite Cynthia to the dinner. Well I did,” Sheree recalls.
And Sheree is accusing Cynthia of pulling a “Taylor Armstrong” and saying things to Marlo behind her back to re-instigate the situation! “Cynthia, Cynthia, Cynthia…messy. I’m not quite sure what the problem was.”
“For Marlo to run over and go from 0 to 60 all because I did not invite her, the person who no one knew was coming (not even the host) and that came with NeNe (the person I don’t speak to), to a party! Really?! Why would she want to go? Why would I want her to go? Why is she so angry? Why is she using hateful, derogatory words? Why would she choose to use that word to describe my friends? I’m not a judgmental person by any means. I love all kinds of people, regardless of their sexual preference.”
And about all of Marlo’s accusations, Sheree wants you to know she has standards. Are we considering Bob Whitfield “standards” now? “I refuse at this day and time to sell myself short. I like what I like, and I can tell you for certain that sleeping with senior citizens just for bags, shoes, or money definitely isn’t it!”
Now onto that infamous safari ride, where it may or may not have been implied that Kim is racist, uninterested in international travel and too self-absorbed to bother with underprivileged children or dealing with NeNe in a foreign country. “The safari ride with Phaedra, Cynthia, andKandi [Burruss] got really interesting,” Sheree recounts.
“Was it just me or were there ONLY black babies/children there?;” Sheree wonders, referring to the orphanage. “To me, making those statements and agreeing with Cynthia on that sentiment was basically insulting Kim and implying she could possibly be racist. It seemed to me like she was throwing her friend Kim under the bus. I don’t understand why Kandi can’t seem to grasp that. Who wants to possibly have to defend their character to millions of people about something someone said, especially if it could possibly be untrue? It’s not fun!”
“I chose to mention what was said in the jeep not while Kandi wasn’t present but while she sat next to me, because I didn’t feel like that was right. If she really felt that way, then she should tell her and allow her to respond.”
Sheree admits she mis-communicated what was actually said, and Kandi did not make the comment about Kim holding black babies. “Again, I stand corrected, Kandi did not say the black baby thing.”
“Believe me, if it were the other way around or if it were any of my other close friends and I witnessed someone they think is their friend talking badly about them, I would do the absolute same.”
As for some of the good moments of the trip, Sheree says she loved the safari and enjoyed her time at Kevin’s dinner party. “Overall, my African experience was simply amazing and very educational,” she concludes. “The most touching part of this entire experience was going to the orphanage and the village to give away some much needed goods.”
HAVE YOU CHANGED YOUR OPINION OF MARLO AFTER HEARING HER SIDE OF THE STORY? WILL MARLO BE BACK NEXT SEASON? WAS SHEREE WRONG TO START DRAMA BY TELLING KIM WHAT WAS SAID ON SAFARI?
Well, first they were getting married and now they’re breaking up! It seems the speculation over Kim Kardashian and Reggie Bush will never end. Personally, I think whenever Kimmie Kakes is in an attention slump her people plant Reggie stories knowing it will get the public talking!
In the latest, Life & Style is reporting the pair has definitely not rekindled things and Reggie was recently spotted with yet another Kim lookalike!
Apparently, post-divorce Kimmie was very confident Reggie would give her, yet, another chance to redeem herself, but he was not interested! “She thought Reggie would take her back after the whole Kris Humphries debacle,” a friend reveals. “Reggie’s her one true love. He could easily fire things up with Kim now, but he’s chosen not to.”
“Reggie likes hanging out with Kim, but he’s not into all the publicity,” a friend reports. “He’s pretty much told told her, ‘I don’t love you like that anymore; we’re just friends.’”
And proving that he’s definitely not in the running to be another Mr. Kardashian, Reggie has recently been spotted out and about in Malibu with another curvy brunette who is “a new girl he’s been seeing.” A photo of Reggie with his new mystery woman is below!
Reggie isn’t limiting himself to just one girl. He’s also been romancing a woman named Claudia in Miami and still seeing Old Navy ad starlet Melissa Molinaro. Kim filed a lawsuit against Old Navy because she believes Melissa was cast in their ads to intentionally fool the public into believing Kim endorsed the company.
Now that Kim’s hopes for Reggie have been dashed the Keeping Up With The Kardashiansstar is trying to move on to a new man. Allegedly, Kim’s handlers are trying to convince her that a new husband will take the attention away from her disastrous, impending, divorce trial which may turn out to be public!
We all know that if Kim marries again or even gets a new boyfriend at this point in time people would be outraged. “Kim is definitely being ill-advised,” a source admits. “To jump into another relationship would worsen the negative publicity – it would be professional suicide.” Worse than filing for divorce after 72-days following a multi-million dollar televised wedding?
And speaking of Kris H, Khloe Kardashian is speaking out about the very first time she met Kim’s future ex-husband. Khloe claims she knew Kris wasn’t right for Kim after he accused her of pulling a Kimmie with her own marriage. I smell damage control! “When I met Kris the very first time, I had just landed in New York and it was late at night … and he was in Kourtney [Kardashian] and Kim’s suite,” Khloe toldJay Leno on The Tonight Show.
“And I went in there to say, ‘Hi’ because Kim was like, ‘Oh, I wanna introduce you to my friend,’” she recounted. “They’d just started dating. And you know, one of the first things that came out of his mouth — like within the first five minutes — was, ‘So, how much you getting paid to fake your marriage? Like how long are you gonna keep this up for?’” BWAHAHA! Kris so had their numbers pegged. Genius!
Khloe was, of course, massively offended. I mean her wedding was like for realz, y’all! “I was like, ‘Dude, I don’t know if you’re trying to make me laugh,’” she explained. “So, ever since then, I had a very defensive wall brought up.”
Khloe went onto share that Kris just “rubbed me the wrong way,” and she knew things wouldn’t work out in the end between Kris and Kim. “I’m gonna be a good sister … but I can’t lie and say this is perfect if I feel in my heart I just didn’t agree with it,” she confessed.
Finally, Kim –who is a good Christian girl now, fully devoted to her church–has been up to her old antics of posting bra pics on Twitter. Kim spent some of her massive amounts of free time photographing herself without make-up, and doing yet another comparison shot of herself after a 300 hour make-up spackling.
“Before & After,” Kim tweeted, then she followed that up with another au naturale shot of herself wearing a bra with sweatpants. “Sweatpants hair tie chillin with no make up on,” she wrote. Photos of Kim before & after and in her bra are below! Anything for attention, that one!
