There are a mere six left on American Idol, with Wednesday night being Queen night. What’s not to love about that?
The show opens with a Queen cover band performing everyone’s favorite “Somebody to Love.” After a fabulous rendition, AI sends the remaining crew to TMZ for some “media training.” Good luck with that! The first two up are Elise Testone and Jessica Sanchez. Jessica doesn’t get the best critique from Jimmy (the judges liked her) for her “Bohemian Rhapsody,” but she blew everyone away with her “Dance With My Father” by Luther VanDross. Randy Jackson couldn’t find a thing wrong with her performance. Steven Tyler and Jennifer Lopez loved Elise’s Queen cover, but Randy and Steven think she made a poor song choice with her Jimi Hendrix pick. She finds herself the first contestant banished to the bottom three.
Emily Maynard‘s season of The Bachelorette is mere weeks away. I know you have all been dutifully doing your Men of The Bachelor countdown, where each day, you pull off a photo of a former Bachelor of season’s past until you reach the pinnacle of douchey-awesomeness in the form of Bentley Williams. Or Jake Pavelka—whichever works! Also, on my countdown isKasey Kahl, who is guarding and protecting my heart with his beautiful singing and inspiring tattoos. Shhh… don’t tell Vienna!
Well, if you’re already on Real Housewives of New Jersey overload, you are not alone! It seems all anyone can talk about these days is Teresa Giudice. Love her or hate her, the flamboyant Housewife knows how to make a splash and she knows how to get people to pay attention, puh-lease!
In the latest, Teresa has taken to In Touch Weekly to formally apologize to her co-stars (we’ll be giving you the full report of the story tomorrow) and it seems some of her co-stars are in a forgiving mood!
Yesterday, Teresa and former bestieJacqueline Laurita took their reconciliation public with a Twitter over-disclosure fest and apparently “baby steps” are happening to rebuild their relationship. Can I get a collective “awwwww”? I love Jacqueresa.
Apparently, Teresa called Jacs and they played phone tag until eventually connecting. It seems the ladies have missed each other, and frankly, we’ve missed them too. I like Jacqueline much better when she’s not under Caroline Manzo‘s spell!
While Jill Zarin and Alex McCord are officially out of the Real Housewives of New York City, they won’t go quietly into that famewhore night and continue to draw attention to themselves, no matter what. We’ll start with the grossest news. Somehow, Alex was able to get press for a very odd passage in her “urban parenting” book, which was released two years ago, Little Kids Big City. They weren’t getting enough hate messages on Twitter, so they decided to promote the passage below, describing husband Simon VanKempen‘s reaction to the au naturale birth of son, François. Alex describes her natural birth as:
“Once he was finally out of my body, I experienced a tsunami of endorphins that was almost orgasmic and I understand completely the stories other women have written about ecstastic birth. Simon was sitting behind me at the point of birth, and later when we untangled ourselves he discovered he’d actually ejaculated though hadn’t felt any of the normal lead-up to that.”

Of course, since Kim’s primary occupation is abusing autotune starring in Real Housewives of Atlanta – which just ended its fourth season – she has much to say about her castmates and that extremely vitriolic reunion!
First up, Kim tackles She by SheBroke‘s alleged firing. Her former co-tart will be making an appearance as a bridesmaid TFTW! “I think Sheree is just possibly in a different place,” Kim shares with The Hollywood Reporter. “I don’t know what happened — if it was completely her decision or Bravo’s, or a combination, I don’t know that. What I do know is that she does have a lot going on and I’m going to miss her.”

Well, it seems the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills are officially back! Reports that the ladies have started filming have been confirmed by actual sightings of the taping in action. In fact, WetPaint reports that the cast will be doing its first group filming at Lisa Vanderpump‘s restaurant Villa Blanca. And everyone will be in tow – even Brandi Glanville, whose name has been conspicuously absent from reports about who is in and who is out!
“All the major players will be there,” a show insider discloses. “It’ll be the first time they film together as a group for the new season.” Apparently, cast drama is still running strong and the ladies have yet to come together and sort through last season’s grievances.
“The women aren’t friends in real life so when they get back together they just continue bickering about everything that they were mad about last season,” a source reveals to RadarOnline. “This year the Housewives are still fuming about all their old slights, barbs and insults and they’re not about to let anything go in front of the cameras this time around.”
And reported new housewife, Yolanda Hadid is already causing drama amongst the cast! Apparently, she and Lisa will have some issues over “some past legal wrangles that have gone on,” the source adds. “As always, the women are going to be asked to pick sides and of course there will be lots of fighting once the tension starts building.”
Another strain, is Kim Richards, who producers expect to be really on point this season following last year’s disastrous appearance. Allegedly, the cast is worried about Kim managing her sobriety with the stress of filming – and dealing with the constant unrest amongst her co-tarts!
Well – that sounds exciting. I can’t wait to watch more of the same thing. Yet another reason Bravo needs to recast after a couple of seasons!
ARE YOU EXCITED ABOUT THE NEW SEASON OR ALREADY OVER IT? WILL YOLANDA BE A GOOD FIT AMONGST THE LADIES?
Egomaniac and wanna-be media queen Tyra Banks recently shocked America’s Next Top Model fans by firing her long time co-judges Nigel Barker, Jay Manuel, and J. Alexander (better known as “Miss Jay”). Can you imagine an ANTM universe without Miss Jay? I don’t think I want to, and it turns out, most fans don’t, either. It was bad enough when she fired the divine Andre Leon Talley and replaced him with Kelly Cutrone, but now this?
