Big Brother 16 is right around the corner. I, for one, am super excited. It can't be worse than BB15, right? Right?!? OMG I hope I'm RIGHT! So, we've already met the Big Brother 16 Houseguests, and now it is time to see the house they'll live in. The theme of the Big Brother 16 house is an urban tree house.
CBS: "This season, the Big Brother houseguests will live in a whimsical urban tree house-themed dwelling. The living room features a 20-foot-high wood tree sculpture and wood panels that give the illusion of peering out into the world from inside the tree. The theme continues with the dining room’s branch-bound chairs and the kitchen’s butcher block island made from slabs of eucalyptus trees. Nestled above the living room is a tree house where the houseguests can play chess. The Head of Household suite includes a giant bird’s nest for the bed and a wall lined with bird houses. The bedroom decor is based on the classical elements earth, wind, and fire with the bathroom’s theme being water."
The photos reveal a new and improved memory wall. "Because we're in HD, we were able to change up the technology," explainedCBS production designer Scott Storey. "We will be using them not only for the houseguests but we'll be putting in different games and moments from the show."
I know I'm not the only one who is counting down the days until Big Brother 16 begins. CBS has released the names, photos, and bios of the Big Brother 16 cast, adding, "Big Brother to debut its MOST TWISTED season ever!"
Twist Number One: Two houseguests will win Head of Household each week. Each HoH will nominate two houseguests for eviction every week. For the first time ever, winning HoH will not guarantee safety for the week.
Twist Number Two: A new interactive element to the game, Team America, will give fans power to influence the game. Twist Number Three: A new competition, Battle of the Block, will dramatically shift the power in the house each week.
“When the houseguests learn about the new twists, they will need to throw out any pre-existing strategy if they want to survive in the game,” promisedAllison Grodner. “The new Battle of the Block competition will shake up the power in the house like never before – a houseguest can go from zero to hero – or vice versa – every week!"
While her new husband was spitting out gems of knowledge across town, Kim Kardashian gave a refreshingly candid interview to MailOnline while in Cannes, France to attend the Cannes Lions Creativity Conference.
The reality star and mother spoke openly about her parenting tactics, the future of her reality TV show and giving baby North a brother or sister someday. And she did it all in the Kim K fashion we have come to expect, she looked gorgeous in a custom Balmain dress made out of the fanciest rope I have ever seen.
We're really looking forward to the new Million Dollar Listing franchise! From the press release: "Three luxury real estate agents battle it out in the world of high-end real estate. With a surging market in South Florida, properties are selling for record rates and agents are cashing in on massive commissions like never before. The mansions are bigger, the high-rises are taller, the amenities are more lux, and the locals have access to amazing views, beaches and a lifestyle unlike anywhere else in the world. Business can get heated as the brokers attempt to make a name for themselves and outshine their competition by landing the next big listing."
Aaaahhh… Gretchen Rossi – what a busy day in the life of a reality TV famewhore and purse hawker.
Since I'm sure those purses aren't paying Slade's the bills, Gretchen signed on to do Marriage Bootcamp – and she apparently regrets it – with Slade Smiley. The two are still angling for that wedding spinoff, but in the meantime, Gretchen has also been filming with Maria Menounos for her new show "Untold"
Despite last season's marital snafu and Terry Dubrow throwing around the word budget divorce, he and wife Heather Dubrow are closer than ever now! Tighter, in fact, than Tamra Barney's botched eye job and Vicki Gunvalson's immobile face! Terry dismisses rumors of marital problems – or that the couple is separating – as nonsense.
"My wife and I have a very tight relationship,” Terry told Wetpaint. “The main issues we have is that I joke around a lot — you can’t take things too serious with me."
"Well ok…Five has always been my lucky number,so we will see. #rhobh Let the games begin," Lisateased.
If you recall, Andy made a trip to LA where he begged Lisa not to leave the show and promised to make some changes to the cast if she signed on. Carlton Gebbia and Joyce Giraud have reportedly been fired (although Joyce has not confirmed that she's leaving), while the remaining cast hangs in the balance.
