Jersey Shore’s “Twinning” aired last night with Mike winning twins. He loses one to Deena while losing his friendship with Snooks. Rawn and Sam make-up, while Vinny and Pauly, as always, entertain the masses.
The episode starts out with Florida chick trying to find her clothes while the Situation tries to find her a cab. Mike gets distracted on his way to the phone and feels the need to nap on the patio furniture where he proceeds to get attacked by a pigeon. Not once, but twice. How can you not believe in karma?
Ronnie can’t believe that after three seasons of this mess, he is just now realizing how alike he and Snooki are. They are both DTWO (down to work out), DTD (down to drink), DTP (down to party), and DTHAGT (down to have a good time)…I assume that DTF is implied, although hopefully not with each other. Neither are DTRAM (down to read a map) so when they can’t find the gym, the pair opts for cocktails at a local bistro. Snooki seems to be the only one in the house who hope Rawn and Sam reconcile because the drama Snooks brings pales in comparison to their relationship.

In her latest blog for the HollywoodLife, Jen talks Royce, the reunion, Eric and of course Meeka! When it comes to Royce, Jen makes it clear she and her circle BFFs Shaunie O’Nealand Evelyn Lozadawant to get her kicked off the show no longer want to film with her.
“Royce is irrelevant! I refuse to waste another ounce of breath on her. She just doesn’t get it! Royce is always starting some drama and I am at a point in my life where I am trying to get rid of drama and any negative influences,” wrote Jen “It boils down to myself, Shaunie and Evelyn not wanting to film with her because she is so full of drama. Other than her “movie role” with Eric, she doesn’t have much of a story line. I am certain she doesn’t want to talk about her new boyfriend that just had a baby with another woman while we were filming…” Ouch!
Jen didn’t end there as it was Meeka Claxton‘s turn to be verbally bitch slapped! “Meeka just needs to shut the hell up! Her mouth is what got her in trouble in the first place. She claims she doesn’t want to be in “the circle” but isn’t that the very reason she came on the show? She should start thinking and choose her words more carefully so she can stop putting her foot in her mouth!” blogged Jen.
Jen also discussed the drink throwing incident with estranged husband Eric Williams, stating it just assured her getting a divorce was the right decision. “The incident with Eric is very unfortunate, however it was just a firm confirmation that I am moving in the right direction,” wrote Jen.
She continued, “I feel Eric ended our relationship with a coward move. Yes, yes I did throw a drink first. I was frustrated our discussion didn’t resolve anything about our impending divorce but I never hit him with the drink nor did I intend to hit him with the drink. The manner and forcefulness in which he threw that drink at me, not to mention hit my chin surprised the hell out of me!”
Jen adds that she continues to date, though she is no longer with Will from the show. There are also rumors that her new beau Lucas James recently dumped her so it appears Jen is single again!

Heading into the fourth episode of Project Runway the designers are starting to get the feel of the competition – some are starting to get really nervous about the mounting pressure – and it’s about to get scarier! After last’s weeks ridiculous, bad, pointless challenge that left fans gritting their teeth – this week Runway is back to ‘design a pretty dress for a celebrity!’ At least the celebrity isn’t Heidi – another challenge of stuffing her into some skin-tight crotchtastic casing of a dress would make me explode.
This week, the designers are forced to contend with something a lot scarier than ten-feet tall stiltwalkers or Mrs. Seal’s lady region – this week they must make a day-to-evening look for the Bitchtress, herself – Ms. NinaGarcia, HBIC! And Nina does not mess around with the frou-frou, the sequins, the fuss, the volume, the loud wacktastic prints and cray-cray colors the contestants often use to distract from poor construction or fit. Nope, this time the designers have to actually *gasp* – CONSTRUCT, and sew, and tailor – in monochromatic hues.

What’s a former Bravo housewife to do when her new show continues to flop mercilessly on the new network she’s on? Well if you’re Danielle Staub, you try to make a tragic moment all about you!
Yes, the former Real Housewives of New Jersey cast member/star of that new show on VH1 that no one’s watching has somehow managed to hijack the tragic suicide of Russell Armstrong this week by revealing her own suicidal thoughts. Really… she did. In a new interview, Danielle claims the pressures of being on a reality show also contributed to her contemplating suicide.
“I was very close to taking my own life — not just on one occasion — it’s been several times,” Danielle told ET in an exclusive interview. She added: “And what always saved me was the thought of my children living with that for the rest of their lives. I didn’t want them to have that memory of me. I wanted them to remember me — even if I’m going through my struggles — alive.”
While fighting back tears, Danielle reveals she understands the deep dark places that must have led to the suicide of Taylor Armstrong’s estranged husband. “I don’t have words to describe how alone you feel. And everybody’s coming at you, and judging you, and they don’t even know you.”
Danielle adds, “It’s really hard to talk to people who are not in our genre about what really goes on when the lights go down. And maybe your family starts to break apart, and you get caught up in it. And I’m not blaming anybody for what I’ve been through, I’m just saying it’s hard to explain top people who aren’t doing this for a living.”
Oddly enough, the ET story manages to plug Danielle’s new reality show Famous Food, you know, the same type of show that ruins lives and families according to Danielle,at the end of the article.

The second season, which is set to premiere less than 3 weeks away on Sep. 5, was set to feature the failing marriage of Taylor Armstrong and Russell as a major storyline. In fact reports even stated Bravo was going to touch on the physical abuse claims made by Taylor.
But in light of the recent tragedy, the network is now considering postponing the premiere or editing it. A show insider tells UsWeekly they plan to “review” the footage and “probably re-edit it. They’re going to go back and probably take stuff out, to make sure they’re being sensitive to the situation.”
Andy Cohen also acknowledged the situation in a recent blog posting, “We’re all still trying to process yesterday’s very sad news, and looking at how to proceed with the series, which has finished primary production and was set to premiere on Labor Day. We’ll let you know what we decide when we do. In the meantime, we’re sending our thoughts and prayers to Taylor and the rest of Russell’s family.”
As of the moment, it’s unclear whether the late Russell will be edited out completely, or whether his death will even be addressed on the show. Other reports also state Bravo execs held a “crisis” meeting with the cast last night at Adrienne Maloof’s mansion. The network once again reportedly told the housewives not to talk to the media.
As for Taylor, PEOPLE magazine is reporting on how she’s coping following Russell’s sudden death. “She’s not talking to anyone, she’s not leaving the house at this point,” a source tells PEOPLE. “Taylor is behind closed doors, surrounded by her family… She’s with Kennedy.”
Meanwhile Russell’s attorney Ronald Richards continues his media press tour. In a new interivew with RadarOnline, Ronald once again makes it clear the Armstrongs have zero assets revealing even their home was being rented. “This was most likely going to be a no asset divorce because neither one of them have any. There just isn’t any money, period,” said Ronald. Should he be telling the media this? Isn’t this confidential?
“Taylor has to go back to work, period. She has a kid to feed, and Taylor has very expensive taste. Taylor has family in Orange County so she might move in with them. It’s just to soon to make those decisions,” he adds.
When asked if Russell had a life insurance policy, Ronald revealed he wasn’t aware of one. “I asked that question and no one I know is aware of one,” Russell’s attorney says. Wow. Russell and Taylor have a 5-year-old daughter together, while Russell has 2 sons from previous relationships.

Guess what – Kelly Bensimon isn’t nuts – she says so herself! In a new interview for Shape magazine, the 43-year-oldReal Housewives of New York castmember talks about all the boring stuff, like her diet and exercise routines, and the important stuff: like how she just plays a wackjob on TV!
Kelly informs Shape that her infamous St. John’s breakdown, oh excuse me – break through, was simply her responding to other people: “people called me crazy,” she acknowledges. “But what they saw was me reacting—in an honest way— to a situation that wasn’t honest. Then everyone ganged up on me. So of course I looked crazy!” Oh, yeah… that’s what happened – Al Sharpton ganged up on her and forced her to eat jellybeans and undercooked meat!
After the tumultuous third season of Housewives in which everyone on Earth decided she was a few jellybeans short of an Easter basket, Kelly felt she had to return to the show – for her daughters, of course: “Teddy said, ‘You have to show them the real you.’ So this season I’m sort of the voice of reason. I’m listening to the others and giving advice and focusing on being a good mother and friend.” Wow – if this past season was Kelly demonstrating listening skills, then yeah… she’s crazier than we all thought!
Despite the fact that Bethenny Frankel was apparently the administrator of the “Systematic Bullying” that plagued her during Season 3, Kelly alleges she reached out to Bethenny following filming to clear the air. The mag reports: “After Bethenny left the series, Kelly says she offered to meet for coffee and a talk.” Kelly claims: “She wrote back saying she’d moved on from it all. That really upset me. She created all of this chaos, and then she moved on?” Interesting…
Kelly address the idea that she’s not the brightest bulb. I mean she went to Columbia University, after all! “I find it hilarious when someone says I’m not smart. I’ve written three books, including American Style, a review of U.S. fashion, which is a textbook in some schools.” In fact, Kelly is so smart she has a fourth book – a fitness and lifestyle guide – in the works.“The premise is that you can be healthy, happy, and hot,” explains Kelly. If you haven’t had enough of Kelly’s advice, you can pick up the book next year.
Finally, Kelly debunks the rumors that she abuses drugs: “My body is like a Ferrari,” says Kelly. “I know what it needs to run well—and that doesn’t include drugs, alcohol, or cigarettes.” If you want to know what Ms. Krazybeans eats for breakfast, lunch, and dinner – you can check out the article yourself, because I’m all crazied out!
The September issue of Shape is on newsstands now. Run – don’t walk – and get one!
So, what do you think of Kelly’s declaration of sanity? Are you interested in buying Kelly’s new book? Thoughts on the cover photograph?
You’re all sitting on pins and needles, I’m sure, knowing you are mere days away from Kimmie Kardashian’sultimate season finale nuptials to beau Kris Humphries. This is just a thought, but perhaps she could do a crossover onto next season’s Basketball Wives!
So is Kimmie bridezilla-ing it up as the countdown draws to a close? Not in the least! Yeah, right. She’s just relaxed and enjoying the days leading up to her lavish wedding. Her mom A source No, her actual mom this time, tells People, “She’s very calm. It’s just her personality. She knows what she wants and she’s very focused on the day and is just enjoying the process.”
Kris Jenner is thrilled that her daughter has found “the one.” She continues, “She’s doing great, and I think that any mom just feels happy when their child finds the person they want to be with for the rest of their lives.” And with the rest of their lives starting this weekend, Kris is hoping that more grandchildren will be in the momager’s not so distant future, joking, “And they better not be stingy!”
With the sure to be over the top wedding taking place on Saturday, we will no doubt be inundated with pictures and video of the big day. Hollywoodlife has confirmed that the coveted exclusive wedding photos will go to People Magazine…for a mere $500,000. It was earlier speculated that the magazine was shelling out a cool million for the spread. Discount! Another no-brainer? The wedding will be next week’s cover story.
A source reveals, “She has a great relationship with the magazine, she and her sisters have done their other life milestones with the magazines, and it’s the most credible and legitimate of all the weeklies. Plus, People has the money to spend on these photos. Not to mention it has millions more readers than the other celeb weeklies. It’s not at all a surprise it’ll be People’s cover.”
ARE YOU EXCITED FOR KIMMIE’S WEDDING? WILL YOU BE BUYING NEXT WEEK’S ISSUE OF PEOPLE? HOW LONG DO YOU THINK THIS WILL LAST?
Following his eviction in theBig Brotherhouse last week, Lawon Exum’s decision, to not only have himself nominated but also evicted from the game in other to get “special powers” that didn’t exist, will arguably go down as the worst game play in the show’s history.
In a new interview with Digital Spy, the 39-year-old legal clerk expresses a lot of regret as he tries to explain his thought process in his decision. Lawon reveals he didn’t really consider he would have to battle an evicted HG to get back into the game and reveals the part his emotions played in his very very bad decision.
Excerpts from the interview below –
A lot of people would say you were crazy for offering to be put up for eviction. Why were you so willing to sacrifice yourself?
“Because I was playing on emotions, and I really felt that I was taking one for the team. And since I took one for the team, look where it got me. But emotions played a huge part of my reason for getting evicted.”
Did you really think you would be able to come back in the game after leaving?
“I actually thought I would be coming back into the game with some kind of power due to this being a game where you ‘expect the unexpected’. I overanalyzed it a bit and I did not expect the outcome that happened. The ‘chance’ of coming back didn’t sink in until I was out there competing in a competition. Do I regret that? Yes, of course. I was overanalyzing what the chance was to come back. If I didn’t overanalyze, I would have fought and never told Kalia she could put me up as a pawn. And you have to remember, when you are in that house, emotions are so high and so up and down that your thinking process is all over the place. You overanalyze every sentence, every word fragment that everyone says and every idea that is given to you in the house. So I really just blame myself for overanalyzing what the outcome would be if I got evicted and had the chance to come back.”
You seemed legitimately shocked after losing the chance to return to the game to Brendon. How did it feel to know that your chances had been diminished that quickly?
“Disappointed. It was very disappointing because I let myself down and was playing on such high emotions. I felt like this competition was for me to go back into the game and at that point I was disappointed at how the whole ‘chance’ for me to return to the house played out. At that moment, I was shocked and disappointed at myself.”
You were accused by some of the other players in the house of being a “floater”. Was this part of your game plan, to try not to make too many enemies for as long as you could?
“Yes! It was my plan initially to not make any enemies in the house so I could strategically plan a strong alliance and learn who was targeting me, and who was not targeting me.”
What did you imagine the task would be that would allow you to return to the house? Would you ever have considered that you would need to compete against a past evictee?
“Overanalyzing it, I thought the chance would be a special power. It didn’t come to my mind that I would have to compete against another housemate until the moment Julie told me not to leave the house yet. I did not think it would be a competition or anything like that. I was thinking of past seasons and different twists, and I hadn’t thought of this. Daniele did, at the last minute, suggest this could happen.”
Shelly said that she could tell you were lying about not having volunteered to be sent home. Why did you think that putting on the act was necessary?
“I thought it was necessary because Shelly was up in the room when I told Kalia that whatever she had to do, she could put me up as a pawn to further herself in the game. But in the end it bit me in the butt.”
And tonight, an all new live eviction episode of Big Brother airs on CBS at 9/8c. Following Adam’s POV win, Brendon, who just returned to the house, finds himself on the chopping block yet again. While Jeff would like to keep Brendon, so he can continue to remain the big target in the house thus taking away attention from himself, the other HGs seem ready to vote him out! We will find out tonight if Brendon can manage to survive this week. Also nominated alongside Brendon is professional Sneaky Snake Shelly.
