I'm new to Big Rich Texas, but I am already completely in love with Bonnie Blossman. Hands down, she is my favorite personality on the show. Booger and Whitney round out the list of people I thorougly enjoy watching. I merely tolerate and/or love to hate the rest of the cast. (Not counting the daughters. They're just kids… my heart aches for a few of them.)
Bonnie, also known as Botox Bonnie or Dr. Bon, isn't your average reality TV star. She's well educated, fun, crazy, witty, caring… I could go on and on. When she's not crashing dog parties and bonding with Booger on Big Rich Texas, Bonnie works for The University of Texas at Arlington, teaching courses in Biology, Biochemistry, Parasitology, Gene Expression, Anatomy & Physiology, and Contemporary Biology. She has an impressive sixteen years of college-level teaching experience. Bonnie earned her PHD in Biology in 2007, graduating with a 4.0 GPA.
In addition to mom/wife and college professor, Bonnie is also a published author, a recording artist, an entrepreneur, and the CEO of her own company. When asked about her crazy-busy life, she said, “I think I have ADHD. I’m serious, I googled it!” Bonnie added, “I could have easily stayed with one career, but I think I’ve just harnessed my ADHD. I was never interested in school, and one career just wasn’t enough. I’m happy doing so much.”
"I need to have thyroid surgery and a thyroidectomy, which means I'm going to have a nice big scar right here across my neck," Brookeshared.
Brooke explains that after a regularly scheduled physical, doctors discovered a worrisome lump in her neck and sent them out for tests and a biopsy. "I got my results back days later and they were atypical, which means that the doctors couldn't confirm whether the nodule was cancerous or benign," the 41-year-old mom of four describes.
I think we all can agree that Kirstie Alley's middle name these days is TMI. Promoting her new book The Art of Men (I Prefer Mine al Dente), the Dancing with the Stars contestant has been dropping bombs about her life and loves all over the media. Someone needs to put a muzzle on her. STAT!
I'm not sure which recent story is the best. There's the tidbit about John Travolta being the love of her life, her forbidden feelings for Patrick Swayze, and, of course, her giant cocaine addiction. Where to begin? Where to begin?
Top Chef is back. Padma Lakshmi returns as host, and the series promises a "back to basics" season. Top Chef Season 10 will take us to Seattle. But, we're not actually in Seattle yet, because the judges still have some cheftestant fat to cut.
The remaining Top Chef Seattle hopefuls are broken up into four groups and must prove themselves to either Tom Colicchio,Emeril Lagasse, Hugh Acheson, orWolfgang Puck. The cheftestants will pour their hearts and souls (and, for some, sweat) into dinner prep, soups, omelets, and salads, and then the judges decide who moves on to Seattle.
Head judge Tom Colicchio's team includes John Tesar, Elizabeth "Lizzie" Binder, Jorel Pierce, Micah Fields, and Anthony Gray.
John pimps himself as the "most hated chef in Dallas." Then, in case we're too dim to realize, he tells us that "hated" basically means "awesome." John says he has a natural talent, and he's the best. Well, there you have it, Top Chef fans. Should we just call it a season and crown him the winner now? Eh, what fun would that be? Let's meet the other egos contestants.
There is nothing like perfect timing, amirite? Right on the heels of Teen Mom 2's season premiere, the girls are gearing up to get their names in the press – big time! Leah Messer is knocked up with baby number three, and Kailyn Lowry tied the knot with fiancé, Javi Marroquin.
Did anyone know she was engaged? Am I the only one who tunes this show out? “You just know when it’s right,” Kailyngushed to In Touch Weekly. The magazine claims they obtained a copy of the marriage license between the two, which you can see on their site.
The pair reportedly got hitched in September, but they are waiting until now to reveal their secret marriage? Thing a little thing called MTV press has something to do with that?
Ohhh.. snap! The infamous Big Poppa, aka Lee Najjar, the (still) married sugar daddy to Kim Zolciak has been arrested, y'all! I love me some juicy gossip and it doesn't get anymore juicy than this.
While Kim and her Biermann fam are still safely ensconced in the Atlanta condo Poppa purchased for her, Big Poppa was arrested in Fulton Co, GA on November 6. The charges are unknown and he was released on an undisclosed bail amount, according to TMZ.
The former couple released a joint statement today:
"We're happy to announce we have reached agreement on a settlement. There has been so much untrue negative innuendo and destructive rumors beyond our control … We want the best for each other and we're confident we can help each other make a continuing positive impact with our children. Our goal is for our children to have stable and nurturing relationships with both of us so we can all find as much happiness as possible. We appreciate the good wishes we continue to receive from our supporters around the world."
