TELL US – ARE YOU EXCITED ABOUT THE NEW SEASON OF THE BACHELORETTE?

UPDATE – A preview commercial for the new season is below.

Following Monday night’s performances on Dancing With The Stars, three of the fan favorites found themselves in the bottom of the scoreboard. Kirstie Alley, Kendra Wilkinson, and Romeo all got the lowest scores coming into elimination night. So did one of them get the boot?

That answer is yes. After 7 weeks of not so great performances, Kendra’s luck ran out as she was sent packing in a somewhat surprising elimination. Oddly enough, Kendra fared better than Kirstie and Romeo in scores, scoring a total of 61 in comparison to their scores of 60 apiece. Also surprising was the fact that Chelsea Kane, who has fared well all season, landed in the bottom three with Kendra and Kirstie.

“Some flowers bloom early, some flowers bloom late, and you’ve been a late blossoming girl,” said judge Len Goodman to Kendra. “The last few weeks you’ve really come on.”

“I’ve lasted seven weeks, which is seven weeks longer than I ever thought I would last,” said Kendra who then went on to thank her partner Louis van Amstel. “I want to thank Louis for sticking with me and not fighting me.”

“Baby Hank, I’m coming home for you!” added Kendra, 25. “I may not the best dancer, but I am the best mom.” With Kendra’s elimination, five contestants remain.

TELL US – WAS IT KENDRA’S TIME TO GO? WHO SHOULD GO HOME NEXT?


After feeling the wrath of Nene Leakes on the most recent episode of the Celebrity Apprentice, Star Jones is now speaking out against her castmate.

During an appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show today, Star struck back against the Nene. “What were you thinking when Nene was going off like that?” Ellen asked Star. “I was thinking my grandmother is going to watch this,” Star replied.

“I was thinking I need to keep calm because, not for nothing, but when you’re confronted in the wild with an un-caged animal you’re supposed to retreat. You’re not supposed to attack,” added Star, 49, referencing why she decided to walk away from Nene during the verbal attack.

But it didn’t end there. “No,” replied Ellen, “with a bear you’re supposed to appear bigger. You’re supposed to get larger.”

“If you can tell me how to get bigger than that, I got money for you,” responded Star. Ellen then wanted to know if there was a possibility of a reconciliation anywhere in the future for the two reality stars: “How do you all get along now?” asked Ellen.

“Well, the lawyer in me would say, ‘We were not friends before, we were clearly not friends during, we are not friends after,’” said Star, adding, “I don’t know that girl and I don’t hang with people like that.” Ouch!

As for the Nene, she seems proud of the way she behaved on the show as she tweeted yesterday, “I always tell the truth because I don’t c the point n lying & it worked 4 me on last nite episode! I had taken all I could take. Bye Hope.”

TELL US – THOUGHTS ON STAR’S COMPARISON OF THE NENE TO AN UNCAGED ANIMAL?

Following the lackluster season one of the Real Housewives of Miami, the show’s resident train-wreck break out star Adriana De Moura had some choice words for the Real Housewives of NYC.

When E! News caught up with Adriana over the weekend, she made it clear she is not a fan of the latest season of the NYC Housewives. The reason? Because it is Bethenny-less.

Bethenny Frankel was my favorite,” said Adriana to E! at the Billboard Latin Music Awards. “I don’t think it’s the same without her. I think it’s a bunch of matronly women trying to look hot,” added the pot.

The topic then turned back to her own franchise and whether or not a second season is underway, or whether the show would be getting the axe a la the Real Housewives of DC.

“We can’t officially say it yet, but I’m pretty sure…I’m pretty confident…,” said Adriana with a smile about the possibility of a second season. She also added that she signed a six-year contract with NBC (NBC Universal owns Bravo). Oddly enough, some of the DC Housewives were also confident their show would be returning and well, we all know how that turned out.

It will definitely be interesting to see what Bravo decides to do with the Miami ladies. We’re thinking a cast overhaul might help breathe some needed new life into the otherwise stale series.

TELL US – THOUGHTS ON ADRIANA’S COMMENTS? DOES THE RHONY SUCK WITHOUT BETHENNY? SHOULD BRAVO BRING BACK THE REAL HOUSEWIVES OF MIAMI? WHAT CHANGES WOULD YOU MAKE TO THE RHOM CAST?


Are they or aren’t they? This seems to be the question concerning two-time Bachelor Brad Womack, 38, who proposed to Emily Maynard, 25, in what was touted the most dramatic Bachelor proposal ever.

The couple has admittedly had several ups and downs, including a break-up which occurred before the pair appeared on ABC’s After the Final Rose, a night that ABC had hoped would be their actual wedding ceremony. It seems the network is hoping for another Bachelor “happily ever after” story, which are the glaring minority when it comes to the marriage (heck, even just relationship longevity) success rate of past seasons. Just last week, we reported that ABC was insisting suggesting the couple stay together and work on their relationship. It appears that ABC has gotten its wish.

The couple has not been photographed together in weeks, and most media outlets who reported the couple called it quits mid April had given up entirely on a reconciliation. However, Emily’s mother Susan Maynard, in an interview with People.com, reveals that all of the speculation is difficult to stomach. She tells People, “They have not officially broken up. It’s still kind of on and off.” Susan continues, “I hear nothing but good things about Brad. They are still just trying to get to know each other…My ex husband has met him and thinks he’s a very, very nice guy.”

And when asked about her granddaughter? Emily’s mother states that “[Little] Ricki seems to like him.” While I agree that this is all well and good, there is something a bit fishy about the fact that Emily’s mother has yet to meet Brad. I am not questioning the closeness between mother and daughter, as Susan had plans with her daughter and granddaughter for Easter weekend, but shouldn’t she have met her future-son-in-law by now? Susan Maynard does believe that both her daughter and Womack have the right intentions, but admits that she knows of no plans to uproot Ricki from her life in North Carolina to move to Texas.

The couple, who have been absent in paparazzi circles as of late, was spotted this past weekend getting cozy in Brad’s native Austin, Texas. Witnesses have given accounts to Us Magazine claiming the couple was seen Friday at Kona Grill and Saturday at Fado, a bar within walking distance of Brad’s condo. It is reported that both nights the pair looked happy, comfortable and at-ease with each other, even smiling and holding hands while posing for photographs with fans. In fact, Brad’s former girlfriend (yet another one?) from nine years ago (again, nine years?), Dayla Burkett, tells Us that she believes that Emily and Brad have what it takes to make their relationship work. She tells the magazine, “We speak all the time and he is a dear friend. Brad is a good guy and he is madly in love with Emily.”

It looks as though the couple is trying to work on their issues and strengthen their relationship. I am certain that things will work out the way they should, and I will refrain from adding my two cents. But I would love to know…what do you think about Brad and Emily rekindling the flame?

On last night’s episode of Bethenny Ever After, Christmas was celebrated, Skating With the Stars finally came to an end, and Skinnygirl reached the first stop on its big bus tour.

Bethenny starts out the day doing something millions of moms wish they could do: have their “Coordinator of Chaos”, Julie deal with the baby while they sleep in. Aaaahhh… lifestyles of the Bravo funded reality stars: Malibu lives on Downtown LA budgets. Immediately after hopping out of bed Bethenny pimps her new Skinnygirl Shapewear line by showing off her fake Kim Kardashian butt and prancing around the living room bending over and sticking out her prosthetic booty in front of her sexually harassed skating partner Ethan Burgess and poor, abused Julie and Dawa. Bethenny decides she’s to going hide how much weight she lost skating by pretending she earned her juicy booty the hard way by, you know, eating something instead of pulling on a pair of padded panties. When husband Jason Hoppy arrives, he’s not sure which is more exciting: the beach house or her new butt (which he totally believed appeared overnight??), until Bethenny burst his bubble by letting him know it was just another product placement for a Skinnygirl line she’s hawking and that sadly he’s stuck with her real butt. Oh well, better luck next time J!

It was a busy Monday night on Dancing With The Stars as the stars not only had to do their regular dances, but also a group number.  Add in an extra guest judge in the form of undefeated world professional Latin dance champion Donnie Burns, and it was a night of suspense!

Following weeks of being in the middle of the pack, actor Ralph Macchio broke away last night. Ralph found his dancing mojo and tied for first place with a score of 36 for his sharp quickstep with partner Karina Smirnoff. The pair received major praises from the judges. “Once you are in the zone, you sell it like no one else can,” said judge Bruno Tonioli. With a score of 30 for their group number, Ralph and Karina finished the night with a total score of 66.

Also tying for first place with a score of 36 is NFL player Hines Ward, who continues to show he is a front runner in the competition.  With the group number factored in, Hines also scored a total of 66 for the night.

Tying for last place were Kirstie Alley and Romeo, both receiving a total score of 60 for the night.  Kirstie continues to struggle and even had a minor breakdown during one of her rehearsals with partner Maksim Chmerkovskiy. Kirstie 60, broke down in tears when Maksim told her to “stop talking” during a practice. “I need a break!” snapped Kirstie. “You scream and jump around and I’m frustrated.”

The duo however quickly made up and even ended their lively jive dance with a spontaneous kiss.

Below is the leaderboard. In parentheses are the total scores from last night including the group number -

Ralph Macchio & Karina Smirnoff: 36 (66)
Hines Ward & Kym Johnson: 36 (66)
Chelsea Kane & Mark Ballas: 34 (64)
Kendra Wilkinson & Louis van Amstel: 31 (61)
Kirstie Alley & Maks Chmerkovskiy: 30 (60)
Romeo & Chelsie Hightower: 30 (60)

And tonight, another star will be sent packing. So the question is…

TELL US – WHO SHOULD GET THE BOOT TONIGHT?

Sunday night’s Real Housewives of the O.C. focused on Peggy and Micah’s dinner party and w(h)ine pairings. Tamra and Vicki added a new “mean girl” to their clique in the form of Donn, Gretchen dodged digs aimed at an absent Slade, Alexis spent the evening crying (and lying!), while Peggy sat back and wondered why her dinner party was so full of drama. (Peggy, here’s a hint– check out your guest list).

The episode begins with delicious looking food preparation. Oh look! It’s Mary Sue Milliken of this season’s Top Chef Masters! Subtle, Bravo. Peggy Tanous and her husband Micah are diligently watching over the people who are actually setting up and decorating for their dinner party. The two spend a lot of time name-dropping high end clothing, watches, and cars while getting ready together.

Slade Smiley’s child support woes have just become headlines in the O.C. (I had to remind myself that it was filmed several months ago), and Gretchen has given up her usual grating laugh for near tears as she explains the “real story” to her hairdresser. Not surprisingly we discover that Slade won’t be attending the dinner because he’ll be at home painting naked spending time with his children.
