A new reality show, More To Love will debut on FOX tonight featuring Luke Conley as the leading man in search of love. The 26-yr-old real estate investor and sub-contractor was interviewed by PEOPLE about his participation in the first dating reality show featuring a full figured bachelor and bachelorettes.

The series will show Luke, who is 6?3? tall and weighs more than 300 lbs dating 20 bachelorettes in a quest to find love. Luke doesn’t reveal if he found love but he wants you to tune in and be a part of his journey as he embarks on love.

These are excerpts from the interview:

TV is a notoriously thin place, but there’s been an upswing in pleasantly plump programming. Why do you think that is?
Maybe they have wider angles on their cameras now so they can fit me on. Maybe the trend is heading in that direction because people are just looking for something new and more real.

Were you concerned about being the butt of a nationally televised joke?
I was concerned the main premise of the show was to poke fun. It seemed like everyone had to be talked into it for that same reason. But it’s legitimate. The desire of the show is for two people to make a sincere connection. It just so happens that they’re not size 2 models.

Are you offended by the title?
The title is suiting. I’m a big man so I definitely have more love.

Has weight impacted your love life over the years?
In high school, it caused me to be somewhat bashful. I would find out about girls with crushes on me, but I never knew what to do about it. Bulking up wasn’t something I didn’t have a choice in. I was pursuing a football career. After traveling and in college, I never let it hold me back or stop me from approaching a woman I was interested in.

charm-school-ashley

Ashley, one of the finalists from Charm School 3, is speaking out about her Charm School experience.  In this new interview with VH1, Ashley does a complete 180 from what we saw during the show’s finale.

She says neither Risky or Marcia deserved to win the $100,000 cash prize.  She also admits that she faked a lot of her “changes” in order to win the cash.  She finally lets us know she feels like a douchebag for crying during the finale.

Below are some excerpts from the interview -

I pretty much know how you’re going to answer this, but how was your time on the show?

I just think Charm School sucked. I really do. I think that they might have put people like me and Farrah on there knowing we would never win, but because we were entertaining. So many of the girls on there were boring. I don’t think there’s a whole lot about me that needs to change. Yeah, maybe I’m mean to some people, but the people that I’m mean to ask for it. Brittaney Starr asks for it. The only one I regret a little bit is Bubbles. I think she’s a nice girl, but she really did get on my nerves. I lived with her for a month. I don’t pretend to be a genius. I know my role, but Bubbles thinks that she is Professor Bubbles. It’s like, why are you here if you know everything?

You say that you don’t need to change much. What about the thing you said about not wanting your son to be ashamed of his stripper mom? Was that just for TV?

A lot of the things that I said on the show were to win the show, but everything I said about my son was real. I wouldn’t use him to win a show. I really don’t want him to grow up and when everyone’s like, “My mom’s a doctor,” “My mom’s a lawyer,” he’ll have to say, “My mom’s a stripper.” Obviously, I don’t want that for my kid. I don’t want him to have to be embarrassed by other kids for what they might say to him. I had him when I was 19, and I was in a position where I had to make money to support my child, and that is how I did it. I don’t regret that, but I am going back to school. I have two years left. I went to college for two years until I had my son, and I chose to stop going, because I didn’t want to put him in daycare. When he’s in regular school, I’ll go back, but until then, that’s kinda my life. I didn’t win Charm School.

So you’re still stripping?

Yeah. Well, I’ve danced three times since Charm School. It’s when I don’t have appearances and I’m in town for the weekend, then yeah, I will. But I do three appearances a week, and I make good money doing that. It’s not stripping money, but it’s enough.

Is dealing with the added stress of traveling tough when it comes to seeing your son?

No. I travel on the weekends, and he’s with his dad on the weekends anyhow. I’ve turned down plenty of jobs because I will not leave Monday through Thursday. He knows that he’s with his mom during the week.

jillian-harris-ed-swiderski

The newly engaged couple, Jillian Harris and fiance Ed Swiderski, were snapped looking very happy together just yesterday in Los Angeles. The two will be appearing tonight on The Bachelorette’s After The Rose show.

People is also reporting that the ring Ed gave Jillian cost an astounding $60, 000! Both Jillian and Ed had the luxury of getting expert advice from jeweler Neil Lane.

“I don’t know anything about diamonds,” admitted Ed. “There were about six or seven rings and one of them just stood out. Neil was like, ‘I made a couple of these especially for Jill,’ thinking about her when he made them. I looked at one and it was so incredible.”

Jillian adds, “I can’t stop looking at it.” Not that we can blame her. It is a beautiful ring. A picture of the ring below -

Gretchen-rossi-slade-smiley

The Real Housewives of Orange County’s Gretchen Rossi and beau, Slade Smiley, shared some quality time at the Silver Spoon Beach House in Malibu this weekend.  Luckily for us, there just happened to be some Paparazzi waiting to snap some shots of them together.

The 5th season of The Real Housewives of OC is currently being filmed.

Ebony_jones_risky_charm_school

Ebony Jones aka Risky from Real Chance of Love emerged as Charm School 3′s winner last night. Risky won after finally being able to open up about her painful past. She beat out both Marcia and Ashley from Rock of Love Bus.

In this new interview with VH1, Risky talks about what it felt like to win, what she plans to do with her money, and her new breast implants.

Below are excerpts from this interview -

Congratulations, first of all. Were you surprised to win?

Yea, I was very, very surprised to win. I know that I gave a really good speech, but I really thought that Marcia was going to win because she made that huge commitment to stop drinking and she lasted that long.

From the start, people wondered why you were on Charm School in the first place. Did you feel like you actually needed it and were able to get something out of it?

I did. I had a temper. I had an attitude problem. I was very impatient. The main thing that they made a big deal out of is that I didn’t open up as much as I should, but there were a lot of other things that I needed to be there for, which, I guess they saw. I feel like I learned a lot from being there. Like everyone has seen, I opened up way more than I ever have before. I became more patient with people. I worked on my attitude a lot.

But was there any strategy in not opening up, so that you could surprise everyone with a big reveal at the end?

No. I actually didn’t want to open up at all, because I’m a very secretive person as far as things that go on in my life. I’d rather keep that to myself because I don’t want anybody judging me for what I’ve been through. But I’ve also realized by being there that a lot of people have been through the same thing that I’ve been through, so why not open up?

It was interesting to watch how the women on this show progressed differently. Bubbles admitted she was molested in Episode 5, but it took you until Episode 10 to open up that you went through the same thing.

Like I said, I wasn’t going to say it all, but once I started writing my speech, things just started flowing, and I figured I might as well just go ahead and say everything. Why not?

bush-kardashian-b

Kim Kardashian and Reggie Bush have called it quits, her rep confirms to Usmagazine. The duo dated for about 2 years before recently breaking up.

“Nobody cheated,” a source close to the couple says. “This is just a case of conflicting schedules and their lives going in different directions.

“It was a totally mutual decision,” continues the source. It has also been reported that the main reason for their break up might have actually been due to Kim’s E! reality show, Keeping Up With The Kardashians. Supposedly, Reggie asked Kim to move to New Orleans to be with him. Leading Kim to say said no, because she wanted to continue filming her reality show in LA.

A couple of months ago, there were rumors of an engagement reported by the tabloids which Kim denied. “I am not engaged!” she wrote on her Web site. “The rumors about me picking out my ring already are also not true! I don’t know where all this comes from!!”

The 4th season of Keeping Up With The Kardashians is set to begin filming soon.

They are such a cute couple, maybe they just need a break. We will definately keep you posted.


bachelorette-jillian-ed

The Bachelorette’s 5th season ended tonight with a normal ending, which is somewhat of a shocker nowadays. Jillian Harris ended up picking Ed Swiderski, an IT consultant from Michigan. She also accepted his proposal.

The finale however had a twist that involved previously eliminated contestant, Reid Rosenthal, returning to propose to Jillian. Jillian pretended to be confused before eventually turning Reid down.

Kiptyn was the first to get the bad news from Jillian, and is also heavily rumored to be the new bachelor. Congrats to Jillian and Ed, or should be wait until the After The Rose show before we start congratulating?

Also, the rumors that Ed came on the show with a girlfriend have never been substantiated, so we have no reason to believe Ed was two-timing Jillian as of today. Actually love Ed and Jillian together, so I hope it works out for them.

TELL US – DO YOU THINK JILLIAN MADE THE RIGHT CHOICE?

 

kate-gosselin-wedding-ring

We reported 2 days ago that Kate Gosselin had finally taken off her weding ring, since filing for divorce from Jon over a month ago. Well evidently, things have since changed. Kate has apparently decided she needs some more smypathy from the general public, so the ring is back on.

UsWeekly reports the Jon & Kate Plus 8 mom wore her wedding ring again this Saturday while playing with her eight kids at her family’s $1.1 million home in Wernersville, Pa.

Not sure what Kate’s trying to sell, but I’m not buying. This seems like a transparent and pathetic attempt at garnering public sympathy. No woman with self respect would continue to wear their wedding ring in public after her husband’s whorish ways have been well documented and photographed. So please Kate, take off your wedding ring and get real.
