We’re not out of the woods yet with Top Chef Texas! Like our beloved housewives, Top Chef also gets the reunion treatment, only the difference is the cheftestants don’t wear Loubies and there’s a distinct lack of satin prom-style dresses among them. But still, omnipresent Andy Cohen makes them all hang out together and relive all their old fights, because they’re contractually obligated to show up.
The most exciting piece of information to come out of the reunion was the rumor that Sarah told judge Emeril Lagasse to “eff off” during a heated moment. Per Andy, this was a rumor from the crew. Sarah claims she doesn’t remember saying that, but the camera immediately pans to an awkward “yikes!” look by fellow judge Tom Collicchio, indicating the rumor is most likely true. Sarah begins to cry, like we are supposed to feel bad for her, and starts rambling about how much she loves Emeril.

With news of her pregnancy and engagement finally confirmed, Snooki is stepping up and making some serious changes in her life. The notorious 24-year-old party girl has decided not to film Jersey Shore this summer, she will focus on being a mother and providing her child with a healthy upbringing.
“I’m not living in that house being pregnant. I don’t want to be one of those moms who’s pregnant in a club. It’s disgusting,” Snooki informed Us Weekly in an exclusive interview. Snooki has also decided to postpone her wedding to fiancé Jionni LaValle until next year, because she wants to lose the baby weight.
Snooki said her parents had mixed opinions about her news. “My dad was upset. He said, ‘You have your whole life ahead of you.’ We didn’t talk for a week. He came around eventually, and now he can’t wait for the baby. My mom is so happy for me.”
Apparently, Snooki’s pregnancy has also caused concern among her co-stars. Vinny Guadagnino worried he might be the father after his fling with Snooki last year. “He’s counting the months. At first he was, but then he’s like, ‘It’s no way in the world, it’s no way. It’s gotta be Jionni’s. It’s gotta be,’” Pauly D joked. Uh oh… paging Maury!
Pauly is thrilled for Snookers, saying she has always wanted to be a mother. “I’m real excited. I love babies! I love everything about them, when they’re not yours. So I’ll take care of it, spoil it and then when it’s crying, give it back to Snooki,” he exclaims. “I want to be at the delivery room,” he adds. Um… ew.
Luckily, MTV is supportive of Snooki’s decision to take a break from filming Jersey Shore, because, well, that’s no place for babies! “We wish Nicole a healthy and happy pregnancy and congratulate her on her engagement,” a spokesperson for MTV told PEOPLE. “We support her as she starts this new chapter of her life.” Adding, “No decision has been made yet on a sixth season of Jersey Shore.”
However, many speculate the show has run its course, as the cast have gone in different directions and are getting their own spin offs. Ratings declined this season, but are still strong averaging as many as 5 million viewers a week. Additionally, one does wonder how long the “talent” will be interested in acting like drunken buffoons!
While she doesn’t want to continue with the show that made her famous, Snooki’s spin-off with JWoww is still happening. The two were spotted moving into a Jersey City apartment recently to prepare for filming. And Snooki was spotted filming this week and showing off her engagement ring! A photo of the ring is below!
Finally, Snooki is talking baby names. Way back in November the guidette had babies on the brain and talked about what she would name a future child. Thankfully Pickle and Tequila aren’t on the list. Snooki told GQ her top names are Frankie, Isabella, Giana, and Jionni Jr. She also shared that she hopes to have four kids! Wait until you have one first!

Last night’s Survivor started off simple enough…the women have gained momentum, the once unified Manono are beginning to crumble. However, I never thought I would see or hear what I did. Boo to you, Colton. Boo. To. You. And to think, last week I thought we’d be biffles if I ever met you on the street. Shame on me.

When most heard the very strict rules and guidelines laid out for Amber Portwood,via her probation, many assumed she would definitely break one of the rules at one point or another, but very few could have predicted she would be screwing up this quickly.
Just two weeks after a judge finally released her from jail to go live with her grandparents, the Teen Mom star has already broken one of her probation terms by failing to take a drug test.
According to TMZ, Amber, 21, has been doing great since her release, until Monday when she failed to provide a urine sample for her mandatory daily drug testing.
And those familiar with the law will tell you that a failure to provide a sample, automatically counts as a failed drug test, which could mean BIG trouble for Amber.
She was sentenced to serve five years in prison back in January for a drug conviction, with the judge suspending her sentence as long as she followed a very long list of rules and guidelines, which included home detention, a curfew, requirement to get a regular job, and enrollment in a halfway drug house.
Amber is due in court today for her weekly check-in, during which, she will be at the mercy of the judge. Legally the judge could decide to have her begin serving her five-year prison sentence, though that is unlikely to happen.
TELL US – THOUGHTS ON THE LATEST? ARE AMBER’S PROBATION RULES TOO STRICT? SURPRISED SHE’S SCREWING UP THIS EARLY?
On last night’s episode of Real Housewives of Orange County the ladies went back in time to their golden years. Aaaahhh… the ’80s; before botox, satin cocktail dresses, orange tans, and TV friendships took over their dreary lives. To a time when they were young, free, and filled their heads with hairspray instead of restylane.
Things begin with Gretchen and Slave driving somewhere. Slave has found his calling of the week in comedy. He says, making jokes helps him escape his problems and he now wants to pursue this. Even Gretchen is like, ‘gimme a break!’ Gretchen asks him not to make future acts center around her co-tarts. There goes Slave’s interest in comedy, because what other material can the man come up with?!
Heather and Tamra meet for lunch. I love Heather’s dress. We find out Terry is from Van Nuys and his father lives in the OC, which explains how east coast Heather ended up in a nouveau, riche, trashy, beach-side, suburb of LA, nearby the likes of Gretchen and Alexis. Kidding, I have family in the OC and it’s beautiful there.

Kim Kardashian is desperate to save her patootie after the media blitzkrieg she’s faced since ditching hubby Kris Humprhies after televising her wedding and divorce. To save her image (like she had a good one to begin with! ahem… sextape superstar!), Kim is doing anything possible to appear all good and sweet. She’s shopping and primping doing charity work in Haiti, publicly crushing on Tim Tebow, going to church, and now she’s considering adopting!
With a very public divorce trial likely on the way, Kim has to detract from the negativity swirling around her. OK Magazine reports that the vapid and desperate star isn’t ready to give up her dream of becoming a mother despite her disastrous love life.
And, since Kim told Allure Magazine she doesn’t want to destroy her expensive, surgically enhanced figure with pregnancy, what better way to achieve her latest whim than going the Madonna route and adopting? “Kim has always been very maternal,” an insider insists. “Of the three sisters, she’s the one who’s been saying that she’s ready for kids the longest.”
“Kim just wants to be a mother so badly,” the source reveals. “She has the money to do what she wants; she doesn’t need a man to take care of her or her baby.”
“It’s all top secret, but the adoption is already underway,” the source adds. “Kim is ready. She’s made inquiries and gotten information. Now she just has to decide where she wants the baby to come from.” Um… shouldn’t she start with a pet? She hates mess and couldn’t even handle Kris leaving his shoes on the floor!
After her life changing trip to Haiti, that’s her top pick to adopt from. “Haiti is at the top of her list, but she’s also drawn to China because of the sheer number of little girls up for adoption there,” the source explains.“Kim definitely wants to adopt a little girl.”
Of course, Kris Jenner is very involved in the process. Hey, that’s a lot of magazine covers and publicity photos she could sell, not to mention a new reality show! “Her mother wants Kim to adopt a baby from the Republic of Armenia. They still have roots there, and it would bring a lot of attention to that country — which has been ravaged by war for decades.”
Since she’s a Kardashian, Kim is already thinking of all the money she could make following in her mom’s footsteps by pimping her own daughter. Kim is estimating she can earn upwards of a $1 million dollars on the adoption story and subsequent coverage. “She’s a businesswoman, and she always thinks of ways to monetize her life,” the insider shares. “She’ll throw a baby shower to end all baby showers and charge vendors to take part in it. The first photos and interview with the baby are also likely to earn money.”
But, the source is quick to add that the Keeping Up With The Kardashians star isn’t adopting for the wrong reason, she really truly does want to be a mom. Just like she really truly did want to be a wife! “I don’t think she’s adopting for sinister motives,” the source insists. “She’s doing it because she doesn’t want to wait to be a mother, and she also won’t have to stop her career with a pregnancy if she adopts. So, just like the wedding, her heart is in the right place.”
Kim’s family isn’t a hundred percent on board with her newest scheme. “Kourtney thinks it’s a good idea in general, but she’s urging Kim to slow down,” the insider remarks. “She’s worried it’s a knee-jerk reaction to the pain of her failed marriage.”
Khloe, however, is totally against it! “She thinks Kim needs to focus on finding a husband first and then worry about adopting a child. She says she’s going about it all backwards. Khloe hasn’t held back with her opinion — it’s causing tension between them.”
And, speaking of finding a husband, Kim is allegedly on the prowl again, and this time sinking her claws into music legend Kanye West! Kim is rumored to have had an affair with the star back when she was relevant and dating Reggie Bush!
Kim recently traveled to Paris to attend his Kanye West Ready-To-Wear Fall/Winter 2012 show at Halle Freyssinet ,and was spotted sitting in the front row. Afterwards, Kim allegedly hung out with him! “Go carting in Paris!!! Doesn’t get much better than this!” Kim tweeted. Something tells me Kanye is too smart for this, but you never know, and Kim is reportedly quite the freak in bed! A photo of Kim attending the show is above!
Finally Kim, has paid homage to fashion week by showing off her massive shoe collection. Her true baby. Kim, who recently donated an approximate $200,000 to charity in exchange for returning her wedding gifts, has an extensive collection. I would say, it cost a heckuva a lot more than that contribution she just made!
Kim posted the pics of her color coordinated shoe collection in Instagram. ”In honor of fashion week I’m posting pics inside my closet!” The photos are below! Color me jealous!

Well according to a new report today, Kim, who did a recent stint in rehab, is healthier than ever and ready for her comeback! Sources close to Kim tell Radar Online she has made great progress since leaving rehab in January. “Kim’s post-rehab transformation is awesome,” the source states. “Since she got out of rehab she’s stronger and spunkier.”
Even better for Kim, age 48, she has now cut off all times with former boyfriend Ken Blumenfeld, who some had described has being controlling. “Kim is single now, and she’s good being single,” the insider reveals. “She wants someone in her life who is going to be a positive influence, and so she’s going to stay single until she finds the right guy.”
And, while her family is reportedly begging her not to return to the RHOBH, the source reveals Kim would like to return to the show. “Kim wants to return for the next season. and while there are a lot of people around her telling her not to she really liked being on the show and being a Housewife.”
Here’s to hoping if Kim does return, she’s sober and healthy. On one hand, I would like to see her return, especially to redeem herself following last season, but then again there’s always that risk of what if she relapses during filming. As we reported yesterday, filming on the new RHOBH seasons typically start during spring.
First Kyle, age 42, explains why the viewers have yet to see Paris on the RHOBH. “Paris was doing a show at the time,” explains Kyle. “There was a contractual thing that they weren’t allowed to come on our show and vice versa. Which we thought it would work out, cause its Oxygen and it’s all underneath the same umbrella, but they didn’t allow it.”
Kyle also adds that she now has a “newfound respect” for Paris who she turned to for advice on how to deal with the backlash that comes from doing a reality show. “Once I got into [reality TV], I turned to her and said I’m really having a hard time with this. I don’t think I can do this anymore. She said this should be a fun time in your life, good or bad you can’t listen to all things people say to you,” states Kyle.
Kyle goes on to talk about the dramatic season two reunion and why she failed to come to her “friend” Lisa‘s defense. “People were also really upset that I didn’t come to Lisa’s defense with the Adriennesituation about the radar online comment but I was in a very bad position. Because I am friends with all of them and Mauricio and I are very good friends with Adrienne and Paul. That’s the number one thing,” explains Kyle. Me thinks fans were also upset because at times, Kyle also appeared to join in on the attack.
Kyle continues: “And number two, Adrienne was not making it up that she was told that. Even though it wasn’t true, they (radar online) owe everyone an apology because it caused that whole thing. What was I going to do? I cannot get involved in every fight. I got a lot of comments from people asking why didn’t I step in? And the next week when I defended Taylor, people said why didn’t you stay out of it, it’s none of your business. You’re damned if you do, damned if you don’t in reality television. You can’t make everybody happy. I know who I am and that’s all that matters.”
And finally, Kyle describes being on a reality show as “very difficult.” She adds, “It is extremely bitter at times. It’s very difficult. If you would have told me it was difficult being on a reality show before I did this, I would think oh please, give me a break how hard could that be? But it is very difficult. People are judging you based on snippets of our lives and they’re not always privy to the back-story, which leads to certain things.” Even though they’re “snippets” they still tell a lot about who you are. Just sayin’ Kyle.

TELL US – DO YOU THINK IT’S A GOOD IDEA FOR KIM TO RETURN TO THE SHOW? THOUGHTS ON KYLE’S INTERVIEW & EXPLANATION OF WHY SHE DIDN’T DEFEND LISA?
With less than two weeks until the premiere, ABC has now released the all new Dancing With The Stars season 14 cast costume photos!
The View’s Sherri Shepherd is pictured above in her silver sequence dress with partner Val Chmerkovskiy. More photos of the other stars and their partners are below!
And if you’re planning on making a few extra bucks betting on the outcome of Dancing with the Stars, the NYDailyNews is making it easier for you. Vegas odds-maker, America’s Line, has been kind enough to calculate the odds for the twelve new contestants on the “celebrity” (that term gets looser and looser as the seasons fly by, doesn’t it? #notyoujaleel) dance competition.
For example, many of you at home may not have heard of the Hispanic Brad Pitt, but as the star of his country’s prime soap opera (telenovella, to be use the correct term for a Spanish soap) the yummy, William Levy is favored with 9-2 odds to win the coveted mirror ball trophy. Those are early predictions, as the betting line was created within hours of ABC announcing the season 14 cast.
America’s Line President, Ben Eckstein reveals, “Last season, we correctly predicted J.R. Martinez as the favorite and eventual winner.” He continues, “This season, we’re gonna try another Latin star, William Levy. Known as the ‘Cuban Brad Pitt,’ Levy is gorgeous, he has a ‘special’ relationship with Jennifer Lopez, and with J-Lo as a mentor — remember she was a former Fly Girl — how can he possibly lose?” So you’re saying he can dance?
America’s Line isn’t the only statistician to play the odds. Wynn Las Vegas predicts The View‘s Sherri Shepherd to take the title, as she’s a 5-1 contender according to their math. What will this do to the talk show’s dynamic? Will Bawbawa be proud? Will Hasselbeck be jealous? Will Whoopi bust out a new pair of sneakers for each show? America’s Line cites Sherri’s odds as 15-1.
The site is kind enough to break down the statistics for each star. Hispanic hunk William Levy is at the top of the food chain with aforementioned 9-2 odds. Last season, his partner Cheryl Burke danced J.R. into the winner’s circle. It doesn’t hurt that William is tall, dark, and handsome…and that accent! According to Vegas, he’s a frontrunner who is easy on the eyes.
With not to shappy 5-1 odds is cheesehead NFL player, Donald Driver. While his partner, Peta Murgatroyd (wasn’t that a Jetsons’ phrase?), is dancing in her inaugural season, Donald is no stranger to winning. And not in a Charlie Sheen way. The dude has a Super Bowl ring to prove it.
My man Urkel, aka the grown up Jaleel White, gains 6-1 odds by America’s Line standards and gets an impressive 9-1 distinction from the Wynn Las Vegas. Who can blame them? It’s Urkel! He’ll win that mirror ball, smile cunningly into the camera and ask, “Did I do that?” Not to mention, since it’s Dancing with the Stars, he’s one of the few that will be perceived as a “star” across multiple generations. I’m sure Family Matters is still a staple in syndication. #winslowneighbor
Maria Menounos is holding strong with a 6-1 statistic from both oddsmakers. Not only does she host Extra, she Tebows with Tim himself and starts off the competition with an already rocking, fit body. She’ll be a contender.
R&B superstar, Gladys Knight has 6-1 odds according to America’s Line, but Wynn is only offering a 20-1 spread. No worries though, she’s been hip-shaking with the Pips since before most of the voters were born. While that could potentially hurt the Motown songstress, I hope it will open her music up to an entirely new fan base.
Opera singer Katherine Jenkins (forgive me, but who?) garners 8-1 and 16-1 odds from America’s Line and Wynn Las Vegas respectively. She’s cute, she’s tiny, and she can sing…in a genre that most people only have heard of when preceded by “The Phantom of the.” An underdog, yes… but doesn’t America love one of those?
Of course it wouldn’t be a recent DWTS season if ABC didn’t go after the tween vote. Ron Bergeron isn’t stupid…The Disney Channel needs to represent. This season, it offers 20-year-old Roshon Fegan, star of Shake It Up, as its sacrificial lamb. Apparently, the Sprouse twins were too busy filming Zack and Cody Spend Senior Year on the Moon. Who can blame them? Going to school on a cruise ship is overrated. Roshon’s odds? 10-1 from America’s Line and 7-1 according to Wynn.
Gavin DeGraw, who recieves 12-1 odds from America’s Line and 25-1 odds from Wynn Las Vegas, is a pensive singer/songwriter, takes the competition up a notch. He’s promised to continue touring while learning his routines and filming the show. Seeing as he recently recovered from being violently attacked on the streets of Manhattan, I’d say this is small potatoes for the guy.
Jack Wagner receives 12-1 odds from America’s Line and 14-1 odds from Wynn Las Vegas. Jack is fortunate to span many a fan’s television lifeline. Did I watch him on General Hospital? Heck no, but my dad’s girlfriend did…as did everyone else in that age group demographic. Was I glued to my television screen in college (yes, I’m old) when he was the hottest guy next to Grant Show on Melrose Place? Yes, yes I was. Sadly, despite his stellar day and night soap resume, he’ll likely appeal to viewers as Heather Locklear’s (God, she was a great bitch as Amanda–RIP MP) recent ex-fiance.
Melissa Gilbert, ex-wife of my childhood husband, Bruce Boxleitner (if you didn’t watch/have never heard of Scarecrow and Mrs. King, I am sad for you. #Netflix) is pulling 12-1 odds from Wynn Las Vegas and 20-1 odds from America’s Line. Most famous for her long run on Little House on the Prairie, it begs the question, what would Michael Landon say?
Personally, Urkel aside, Martina Navratilova is someone I would LOVE to see make it far in this competition. I love tennis. I play tennis. I am horribly God awful at tennis. But I have always loved my tennis icons…and while America’s Line gives this superstar athlete and Wimbledon champion 25-1 odds coupled with Wynn’s 30-1 odds, I have a feeling she’ll prove us all wrong. Deuces.
Pictures of the 14th season cast are below. Place your (non-monetary, I no way condone or promote gambling) bets now!
