With the pressure on from GLAAD (and probably quite a few show sponsors), the network suspended Phil from filming the show. They shared in a statement: “We are extremely disappointed to have read Phil Robertson’s comments in GQ, which are based on his own personal beliefs and are not reflected in the series Duck Dynasty. His personal views in no way reflect those of A+E Networks, who have always been strong supporters and champions of the LGBT community. The network has placed Phil under hiatus from filming indefinitely.”
Well, that certainly didn't take long, did it? Basketball Wives creator and star Shaunie O'Neal is finally opening up about her pal Evelyn Lozada's bun in the oven. I guess we can all just stop pretending that Carl Crawford "may be" the father, right?
Real Housewives of Beverly Hills'Kyle Richards has quite the busy schedule! As if promoting her new boutique, starring in a reality series, or poo-pooing rumors of infidelity in her marriage didn't take up enough time, Splits has now partnered with iLVITA, a "fitness lifestyle solutions company." That's a real thing, y'all!
According to the Wall Street Journal, Kyle has fallen for the company's Bruciare Fitness Chair, and she wants her fans to know all about it. Citing losing her parents to cancer as her main motivation for the partnership, Kyle is hoping that she will set a good fitness example for her daughters.
Much like the other reality competitions before it, TheX Factor needs a revamp. Let's face it, unless it's The Voice, no one is really watching on the daily…or are you? I've never been one for the these shows (although I did get addicted to American Idol back in the day), but I do love to watch a moody Simon Cowell. Plus, who doesn't love to see what color hair Demi Lovato is sporting on any given night?
USA Today is reporting that Simon has grand plans for the upcoming season of the X Factor. He's talking shake-ups, y'all! Simon himself even wants a new role in the production.
Shahs of Sunset's Reza Farahan taped a segment for Bethenny Frankel's talk show yesterday – and he let her shave off his beloved mustache! In return, Bethenny donated $10,000 to Reza's charity of choice, Project Angel Food.
"I was very nervous," Reza said to Us Weekly. "Bethenny is a very sweet, nice white lady who shaves her white hairs and is not used to angry Persian hairs. I don't think she realized how strong my hair is and I was worried she would take my upper lip off!"
Check out the video and the after photos below – but don't get too attached toReza's clean shaven look. The mustache is definitely coming back. "I am just more comfortable with it," shared Reza. "I feel lonely, like my wingman is gone."
Last night's episode of Shahs of Sunset was fairly uneventful. For me, it felt like a filler episode to set up the showdown betweenReza Farahan and Mike Shouhed on the next episode. Oh but Mercedes "MJ" Javid did do some of that pesky thing us regular folks call a job! I guess that's worth noting.
To kick things off, Reza and Adam Neely are off to the mall. Reza pokes fun at Sears and Nieman Marcus in the same mall – this coming from the man who has Louis Vuitton shoes and IKEA furnishings in the same apartment. As they walk through the mall, Reza and Adam talk about the menu for their upcoming housewarming party, and they just happen to come across a Beluga caviar vending machine – a small can of caviar costs $3500, cash only. First, gross. Second, no problem for Reza, who whips out a wad of $100s. Adam wants to know who carries around that kind of cash, Reza says immigrants! Reza gives Adam props for going with the flow, adding, "With a little more training, he could be the quintessential perfect Persian wife."
Golnesa "GG" Gharachedaghi and Asa Soltan Rahmati take a Tai Chi class in the park. Asa thinks it'll be good for GG, who lacks impulse control. At the same time, GG tells us, "MJ makes me want to cut her t*ts off and bitch slap her with them." Tai Chi just makes GG horny. Better luck next time, Asa.
Lilly,Joanna and Carmen headed out to RivaBella restaurant together. Lilly, who normally doesn't partake in anything fun besides work, shared on Twitter why she decided to enjoy a night out. And made sure we knew the details of her outfit…
"I usually go to bed after my long days of work, but I'm starting my New Years resolution now, to be more fun . Quick change and off to girls night with @jackketso @carmenelectra @joannakrupa Rocking a @lovenookie dress with #hermes Birkin bag and #brianatwood pumps custom bling'd by @crisrockzit #ghalichiglam."
