My prayers are still going out to those affected by Hurricane Sandy, and as more photos of the devastation are posted on the Internet, I am truly saddened that so many millions of people have had to experience such destruction. Words can't adequately express how my heart goes out to those struggling to rebuild their homes and towns.
As you all know, Seaside Heights, New Jersey was one of the areas hit hardest by the super storm. The Shore Store, the boardwalk, and a plethora of sketchy dance clubs have been the stage for everyone's favorite guidos and guidettes for several seasons on MTV's Jersey Shore. Now the boardwalk is destroyed and parts of the iconic vacation town are underwater. There are some photos of Seaside after Sandy below.
President Obama has declared both New Jersey and New York disaster areas, and Governor Christie of New Jersey has called the damage to his home state "unfathomable."
As I sit here and plow through my son's Halloween candy (hey – he's only 2!) while I work, I'm even more thankful that my family and loved ones are safe after Superstorm Sandy. While several reality stars found themselves in the middle of a storm (and not one manufactured by producers or caused by gossip and pettiness), the Real Housewives of New Jersey undoubtedly – and as usual – were some of the hardest hit as they are in the epicenter of a hurricane.
Several of the ladies lost power for days and even worse had their shore houses destroyed in the process. Here's an update on how everyone is doing post-Sandy as New Jersey begins to rebuild.
And just a quick comment: Caroline Manzo has been updating her twitter with relief stations and information for victims. Apparently annoyed followers have decided to unfollow because of too many tweets. Seriously people? Have a heart. While Caroline only lost followers (and electricity) – SOME PEOPLE lost everything. Empathy, people, empathy.
Teresa Giudice had several appearance scheduled for this week and canceled them all. She has been cooking to help out friends still without power.
Pimpmoma Kris Jenner is up to her old antics again. Not six minutes after Kourtney Kardashian popped out (or should I say yanked out) baby no. 2 – she's pressuring Kourtney to marry long-time boyfriend Scott Disick on national TV. Cause that worked out so well for ol' Kimmie Kakes.
I suppose with Kim's relationship to Kanye West permanently in limbo because of her never-ending divorce trial, Kris has got to focus her attentions on another money and attention generating daughter.
"Kris is the mastermind behind Kourtney and Scott getting engaged and married on TV," Kris' assistant a friend of K-Fam tells Hollywood Life. "She’s the one who initially came up with the idea. She thinks it will bring in huge ratings for the season finale of Kourtney & Kim Take Miami.”
Courtney is a model, mean girl, and villain. She cuts throats. Shawntel is a funeral director, quirky girl, and fan favorite. She embalms bodies.
Their Bachelor history:
Courtney "won" her season of the Bachelor. She just ended her engagement to her "prize" Ben Flajnik. Shawntel was rejected by Brad Womack. Later, she crashed Ben's season, but Courtney threatened to leave if Ben kept her. Shawntel was sent home by Ben. Shawntel just announced her engagement to a regular guy.
Their writing style:
Courtney plans to write a juicy tell-all book about her sorrid past relationships and Bachelor experience. Shawntel wrote a tasteful autobiography about her career and Bachelor experience.
Did you catch that? In an interview with Celebuzz, Courtney reveals she's writing a tell-all memoir. I know you're excited, but you cannot pre-order your very own copy yet… so please calm down.
She is, she isn't. She quit, she got fired. Yes, no. She wants to return, she doesn't want to return. I feel like I'm pulling petals off a daisy when it comes to Real Housewives of Orange County'sAlexis Bellino. But guess what, y'all…she's ba-ack!
After promising anyone would listen that she wasn't coming back for another round (on her own accord, mind you), it's being reported that Alexis will be a full-time housewife on the upcoming season of RHOC. I really can't say I'm surprised. I'm guessing you're probably not that shocked either.
