Since her Jersey Shore days, Snookihas built herself quite an empire and (wisely) didn’t put all of her eggs in the “reality star” basket. She’s left her party days behind her and swapped out her Shore house for this house, and is raising two adorable kids with her husband. Nicole is writing books, getting crafty, running her clothing and accessory lines, selling her perfumes, slippers and a million other products and managing other side gigs. The never-out-of-energy star announced this week that she has written her fifth book!
Snooki shared on Instagram that her newest book, “Strong is the New Sexy: A Kickass Memoir” will hit shelves in October. The fitness buff is going to talk about her road to living a positive and healthy life and share advice on what other women can do to be strong and positive. She shared a photo of the book cover, “So excited for my new book!!! Strong is the new sexy- how to live a positive life!”
Evelyn Lozada is returning to reality TV – I’m sure you’ve missed her. The former Basketball Wives star has a whole new life – a new fiancé, a new son, a new city, a newly grown-up daughter, and with that comes a whole new reality show! ‘Livin Lozada’ will premiere on the OWN Network July 11th to follow Evelyn and her daughter Shaniece Hairston as the navigate their rapidly changing lives.
After divorcing Chad Johnson a month after their fairytale wedding because of cheating and domestic violence, and losing their VH1 spinoff, Evelyn briefly retired from reality TV, but she has returned stronger! Evelyn is now engaged to MLB player Carl Crawford, has moved to LA, and is raising one-year-old son Leo, all while her daughter Shaniece graduated, turned 21, embarked upon a modeling career, and decided to launch a swimsuit collection.
Lifestyles of the trashy and famewhory! Jenelle Evans turned herself into Myrtle Beach Police yesterday, but she wasn’t alone – Teen Mom 2 cameras were there to capture the whole memorable moment on tape. Oh goody – home videos for the whole family to reminisce over someday.
Jenelle had an outstanding warrant related to an assault against her ex-fiancé Nathan Griffith and decided to surrender. Jenelle made sure to get done up for her (6th? 7th? 8th??) mugshot, featured above, and was released Thursday afternoon after South Carolina police processed her criminal domestic violence charges, which included allegations that Jenelle kicked, punched, scratched, and tried to choke Nathan.
In today’s ULTIMATE IRONY, the woman who encouraged her sixteen-year-old daughter to marry a 50-year-old, is now disappointed by the trajectory of her career. Krista Keller has quit managing her daughter Courtney Stodden‘s career in light of Courtney’s sex tape release because, she’s disappointed. Yes, Courtney’s momager has resigned over “serious creative differences.” Apparently Krista would have never released a sex tape – even for the animals, even when threatened by best friends…
Krista explains that Courtney has become “difficult to work with” because of otherpeople interfering in the direction of Courtney’s career. “I love her very much and I decided to step down due to creative differences,” she explains. “I think you can figure out why,” Krista sniffed.
Mariah Carey is keeping it real in a recent interview with Australian KIIS FM hosts Kyle and Jackie O on Thursday. Real nasty, that is! When asked about her time as a judge on American Idol, Mariah bluntly described the show as “so boring and so fake.”As a judge on season 12 of the show along with Randy Jackson, Keith Urban and (on-screen nemesis!) Nicki Minaj, Mariah says she “felt forced to make up stuff about the contestants and their performance to keep the show going,” according to Page Six.
Adding a halfhearted apology before another insult, Mariah added, “I’m sorry, I just think it’s … when I say it’s fake … I mean like you have to make up things to say about people.” Claiming that, at times, the judges don’t have a whole lot to say about the performers, she explains, “Half the time the performances are good, you just be like ‘it was good’ and you feel like ending it there: ‘You were really good.’”
I don’t know who is writing Sonja Morgan’s Bravo blogs, but they need to cool it on the “vitamins” mixed with Red Bull (allegedly) and limit their word count to – oh, I don’t know – under 10,000. In this week’s War and Peace length narrative, Sonja bemoans the Real Housewives of New York ladies’ lack of support regarding her Latino Show Magazine party, an event which launched one single dress…and a thousand comments. But before we go there, let’s start at the very beginning. It’s a very good place to start! (Thank you, Julie Andrews.)
Sonja begins by questioning the emerging friendships on this season’s RHONY. “I must say that the relationships we saw in this episode seemed very forced! I feel like the girls are trying out some new friendships this season, and I don’t know that they are going to work out,” she snarks. “Just look at Ramona [Singer] and Luann [de Lesseps]! They tried to establish a friendship this year, and it completely blew up tonight (and at the fabulous Pettrosian of all places). But I must say that Ramona and Dorinda [Medley’s] new friendship does seem to be genuine.” Although Sonja supports Dorinda’s encouragement of Ramona getting back into the dating scene, she believes Mario does really want a second chance. “I am also not surprised that Mario wants to get back together with Ramona. Who wouldn’t want to stay with Ramona? She’s a fox, fun, and keeps you on your toes (even if an apology comes soon thereafter)! Ramona is going to have a rough road ahead deciding where she would like her relationship with Mario to go,” she comments. Because Sonja needs to make Ramona’s divorce situation all about HERSELF, she continues by admitting, ” I do wish that Ramona felt comfortable sharing these moments with me, but I need to respect her decisions during this difficult time. Like Bethenny [Frankel]says, sometimes its easier to open up to someone you hardly know. As is the case when Bethenny herself lets her hair down, and the tears flow with Carole [Radziwill], who doesn’t even have children.”
Luann de Lesseps doesn’t hold back in her latest Bravo blog. This week the Real Housewives of New York star lays it all out there, including her real feelings about Ramona Singer’sfuture (or lack thereof) with Mario, Carole Radziwill’s cold behavior toward Bethenny Frankelduring her (3rd? 5th? 100th?) crying scene, and why Ramona cannot be trusted. She begins by commenting on Ramona’s belief that Mario may want to mend their marriage. “While I’m glad Mario and Avery are now on good terms, I’m skeptical of Mario’s intentions and hope that Ramona waits to see how this plays out before jumping back in. Time will tell,” warns the Countess.
Luann’s thoughts on Carole winning election to her building board are skeptical, but mainly supportive. She comments, “Carole as a politician…why not? She has to start somewhere (I guess), and her election to her building’s board could be the beginning of a new career? I was happy that she was chosen, and I liked her ‘strategy team,’ although it was a bit of overkill, don’t you think?” Yes, those homemade posters by Heather Thomson’s children were surely not Class-With-the-Countess-Approved! As for Carole not being a “hugger” when, in Luann’s opinion, Bethenny needed a hug most, she says that when Bethenny “went décor shopping with Carole at CB2 (fabulous place) and broke down sobbing in the middle of the store, it made me realize that she is so consumed with fear that she can’t see her future through her tears. I wonder why Carole couldn’t find it within her to give Bethenny a hug…even if she isn’t ‘a hugger.'” She adds that Bethenny “needs to take care of herself. When Mommy’s happy, everyone is happy,” and that “Bethenny has to begin looking ahead rather than back and enjoy the time she has with her friends and family.”
