In an all new interview with VH1, Brittaney “Jasmineva” Starr talks about her time on Charm School. She talks about being ostracized, being empowered from porn, bathroom imprisonment and how she’s actually “a pretty normal person at home.”
Below are excepts from her new interview -
Your time on the show seemed tumultuous.
Yeah, it was OK. I was disappointed not to see Sharon Osbourne. I know how 51 Minds edits and the role they insist on making me play into, and I’d never have agreed to go on another show for them had I known the headmistress wasn’t going to be Sharon. I think she’s an amazing woman and I have the highest respect for her and her family.
But not Ricki Lake?
I have respect for Ricki, but I don’t follow her. Sharon’s the coolest. I was really excited to meet her. Ricki seemed nice until I saw the show and what she said about me, which wasn’t nice of her.
Are you talking about her comment about porn not being empowering?
No! She’d barely met me for five minutes and she called me a kook.
During your exit interview, though, you did admit to being “a little psycho.”
(Laughs) You know when I was wearing the pink DJ headphones and Stryker asked me about them? I replied that I wanted to represent that I was a DJ so the world would know what I did, since the show kept making me out as the crazy ex-porn star. So they of course edited that out and just showed my “wicka-wicka” dance, when I was emulating scratching records. Watching that, I totally laughed at myself. I thought it was funny how they edited all the silly stuff together. What’s life without laughter, right?
TMZ reports Kelly has been ordered to two days of community service. If you recall, Kelly was arrested in March after allegedly giving her boyfriend, Nicholas Stefanov, a black eye and slicing his cheek in an argument at her Manhattan apartment.
Kelly said outside of the courtroom today that she believed “justice was served.”
I’m guessing that in Kelly world, being sentenced for assaulting someone means justice for her – the assaulter.
Kris Allen has officially signed a record deal. The American Idolwinner has inked a deal with Jive Records and 19 Recordings.
Kris says in a statement, “As exciting as the last few months have been, I’m really looking forward to what is next. I’m very grateful to be working with Simon Fuller and his team at 19 Entertainment, along with Barry Weiss and Jive Records, on my debut album.”
And what should the fans expect from his new album? “It will be very similar to what you heard from me on the show — definitely in the pop/rock genre. I can’t wait to get started!” Allen said. His album is slated for a fall release.
Sexy Gilles Marini made it all the way to the Dancing with the Starsfinals but lost to Olympic gymnast Shawn Johnson. Though he complained about his injured shoulder, he never stopped dancing and this led many people to believe the injury was exaggerated.
“A lot of people thought I was joking. No, no. It was bad. A lot of damage to my shoulder,” says the 33-year-old, who was later diagnosed with tendonitis and recently underwent surgery at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles.
“I had an outpatient procedure and the surgeon discovered there was a lot more damage than what we originally thought,” Marini told PEOPLE. The surgery was successful and according to the physician he should fully recover in three weeks.
Marini was asked about plans for the summer- He plans on taking his family to France for a couple of weeks before returning to the states to accept some acting roles. He already confirmed he will be playing Rachel Griffith’s love interest on Brothers and Sisters next season.
Even though he lost on the show, he certainly feels like a winner. “My son [Georges] made a trophy for me. It has four lines on it and the first letters of each line are D-W-T-S,” Marini says proudly. “The first line says ‘Daddy, you’re the best.’ The second line is ‘With all my love.’ The third line is ‘Ten-Eleven-Ten,’ because Len [Goodman] joked he wished he could give me an eleven. And the last line is ‘so proud, Georges.’ This is what it’s all about.”
Lastly, Marini says “For me it was never about winning or losing. After I made it to week five – I am not a dancer and I went that far on a dancing show – I felt like a winner in my heart.”
In a recent interview with David Letterman, Paula Abdul says she loves her job on American Idol but she is not certain that she will be returning for another season. “I never said [I wasn’t returning]. I just said that I’m not sure,” Abdul said cryptically.
“It’s called, um, ‘negotiating’,” she joked.
Letterman shared his own personal experience dealing with network suits and advised Abdul to be careful. “One time, I tried that, I was coming up to the end of a contract, and I said, ‘I don’t know, maybe I won’t come back,’ and they said, ‘Fine because we’ve got another guy ready to go’,” cracked the 62 year-old late night host.
Abdul was asked about her relationship with co-host Kara DioGuardi. “Kara’s great,” Abdul told Letterman. “I don’t understand why they do this to women; they love to pit women against each other. Maybe because it’s sexier, I don’t know. Maybe mud wrestling, the whole thing.”
