I think we can pretty much credit MTV with the birth of reality television thanks to the explosion of The Real World, but it didn't stop there. Think about all of the families we watch on a weekly basis, from the Robertsons to the Kardashians to everyone in between. Where did the madness begin? Some may say with a ride on the crazy train courtesy of The Osbournes. Don't act like you didn't watch!
We saw Jack and Kelly Osbourne grow up on camera (although eldest daughter Amy didn't participate) with the always hilarious chirping busybody of a "mum" Sharon and bumbling, mumbling former death metal star Ozzy. And, of course, don't forget their tiny pooches! Now Kelly is a fashion consultant for E! and Jack is family man–how precious is his wife? (pictured with him and his parents above)–currently competing on Dancing with the Stars…but do they ever think about going back to the days of reality television's first family?
Tonight is Kim Kardashian's big ole birthday bash in Las Vegas and one of Hollywood's largest media outlets was BLACKLISTED from the soiree by pimpmama Kris! Access Hollywood went public with the behind-the-scenes insanity, claiming that they were given the boot from tonight's festivities and it's all because they were HONEST when they gave a less than stellar review of Kris' craptastic talk show this summer!
AH wrote on their site, "first, her talk show was not great and she is not a talk show host, no shame in that. The landscape is littered with failed talk shows… Bethenny is finding that out right now…"
Last weekend Kylie and a group of friends, including Jaden Smith, sauntered into a BH hotel around 8:30 pm. At first Kylie was jovial and polite to staff, having a good time and easy to deal with. But all that changed when she was told no!
"She was a complete nightmare," a source reveals of Kylie. "She started out really nice. But when she didn't get what she wanted, it was like someone flipped a switch."
The couple who filmed their over-the-top proposal will likely be airing their big day on TV as well, but there's a snafu in getting hitched! Kanye wants to get married ASAP but Kimmie Kakes wants to wait. Probably until she loses the rest of her baby weight.
Amanda Markert is not happy over the unwanted media attention that Pauly D has brought her way since he shared that he's the father of Amanda's daughter, Amabella. The mother of his child took to Twitter to share her frustration over all that has transpired this week and it sounds like Pauly is the one reveling in all the press coming his way. I mean, he certainly hasn't been on our radar since Jersey Shore came to an end…
Amanda defended herself, sharing that the only person she told about her baby's paternity is Pauly himself. He's the one who ran to TMZ, etc, to give them the headlines and drag her through the mud. Pauly's even now claiming that Amanda is using him for fame. But if you read this woman's Twitter (which is now protected), she does not want any part of the spotlight.
Very, very soon the ladies ofReal Housewives of Beverly Hills will be upon us with their white parties (please spare us Bravo!), their diamond-studded tantrums, and their insults flung like the finest of fine champagne in a Bacarat crystal flute. I'm excited. And of course RHOBH wouldn't be the same without Brandi Glanville spouting her mouth off! So there's also that to look forward to.
This season welcomes two new ladies to the 90210, Joyce Giraud and Carlton Gebbia (which leads me to ask: which witch is the biggest witch? We all know Rambles Richards escaped from Witch Mountain!). Brandi is quick to confess that one new lady she like loves and one… well, not so much!
Dishing on the new season Brandi says it's more shaken than a martini. “It’s such a shakeup, all the friendships change and turn,” she tells Extra. And the new ladies are definitely bringing it!
