Last week on the Bachelorette, Emily Maynard said goodbye to Travis Pope (egg guy) and Ryan Bowers (sweet talker) in Croatia. This week, Emily wants us to believe she handles her own luggage as she and the remaining suckers suitors head to Prague. Chris Harrison meets the men in Prague to remind them this is the the last set of dates before the hometown dates. Also, he explains how this week is going to go down. There will be three one-on-one dates and one group date. There will be a rose up for grabs on the group date but not on the one-on-one dates.
The six remaining bachelors are Arie Luyendyk Jr., John Wolfner, Chris Bukowski, Doug Clerget, Jef Holm, and Sean Lowe. The first date goes to Arie. The date card reads, “Let’s Czech out Prague together.” Emily’s date outfit is interesting – knee-high boots, Ricki’s bedazzled shorts, button up shirt that she forgot to finish buttoning, and a suit jacket. Out of the blue, Emily lets us know she knows something about Arie but he doesn’t know she knows. Very soon after this revelation it’s painfully obvious that Emily is going to resort to passive aggressive hints for most of the date rather than talking to Arie about what she knows. Very mature, Emily.
Oh, Real Housewives of New Jersey – never a dull moment. Magazines and tabloid activities have been all the rage this season and Melissa Gorga isn’t about to get herself excluded from the ‘look at my cover!’ madness.
To prove that people want to put her on the cover of magazines just like a certain she who shall not be named sister-in-law from hell who recently agreed to go to therapy, Melissa unveiled the cover of Boardwalk Journal Magazine on Twitter.
After last week’s drama, Mimi Faust is recapping her feelings about K. Michelle’s birthday party with her good friend Ariane. Ariane tries to talk some sense into her friend, but Mimi is just upset because Stevie tells her that she is his world. Um, well, someone else was his world last night! Ariane questions Mimi’s next step, but Mimi just can’t make such a big decision right now. Gracious.
Rasheeda talks about her family with Kirk Frost. After working with some major labels, she is much happier being a part of an independent label with her husband as her manager. Together, they try to figure out her next single. Kirk knows that she has the talent to go far, even if he’s more her sucker than her husband or business partner. He wants the pair to be able to balance work and marriage. Kirk is tired of having Rasheeda bring work issues into the bedroom.
Rosie Pope is shaking her head right about now. Something tells me that Pregnant in Heels isn’t quite the same as Pregnant in Foam Platform Cheetah Flip Flops. Perhaps it could be a spin-off though, right? Our old friend Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi didn’t fare too well recently in her staple tacky platforms, taking a tumble in Seaside Heights, New Jersey. While tripping and falling in the streets is nothing new to MTV’s favorite meatball, usually it’s due to severe intoxication. However, no one wants to see a pregnant guidette taking a fall, given, you know, the fact she has a baby on board.
The Huffington Post reminds us that Snooki has touted her ability to walk tall (well, kind of) in heels during her pregnancy. The site reports that she told Good Morning America not too long ago, “I feel confident in them, and I know I’m not going to fall, so until it feels very uncomfortable, I’m still going to rock them. I’m only 24 and I’m pregnant — it doesn’t mean I need to be wearing flats and ugly shoes. I can still look good.” Maybe not flats, but perhaps Snooki should bring back those beautiful fuzzy pink sneaker slippers as she moves into her later trimester. We’re glad to know she’s okay though!
Sources tell TMZ that the Basketball Wives star’s car was re-homed earlier this month with a “no-return order,” which means even once she pays the bill she’s still not getting the car back!
Jenn owes a whopping $92,000 on the 2006 white Bentley, which is allegedly already scheduled to hit the auction block. Despite the car going to a new home, Jennifer is still responsible for the remaining balance. No bueno!
Last night’s Real Housewives of New Jersey focused on the important things in life: Rosie’s jaunty cap collection, the remix of “On Display,” and friends doing everything in their power to maintain a strong bond through mutual respect, listening, and give-and-take. Oh wait, maybe not that last thing…
Caroline Manzo? More like Caroline Done-zo! She is way over Teresa Giudice’s behavior. I mean she only wanted to return some swimsuits in the least set-up and manipulated scene ever and she ends up in the midst of World War Tre? Uh uh. No way. Caroline is fed up…and you don’t want to see Caroline fed up because fed up Caroline looks like Caroline always looks scary. The Manzo brood,Greg Bennett, and Uncle Chris Laurita are drinking some sucky read wine in the yard. Laurenis worried about Jacqueline after hearing stories of tabloid-gate twenty-twelve. Chris regales the children with stories of a Jacqueline once so loony, she threw all her ex-husband’s belongings into their front yard. Basically, he opines, she is now throwing all of Teresa’s metaphorical crap onto their manicured lawn. Chris wonders why women can’t handle fights with a quick discussion and then forgive and forget like he and his fellow brawn practice. Oh yeah, emotionally emoted emotions.
