This week, instead of personally introducing the quickfire challenge, Padma Lakshmi and Emeril Lagasse leave a note. The note directs the chefs to take three Toyotas (ohh! ahh!) to Taylor Shellfish Farm.
When Josie Malave gets stuck in quicksand, Micah Fields and Stefan Richter come to her rescue. I don't know why. She's super annoying, nobody can stand her, and proving to be impossible to eliminate. Overall, the chefs are excited to harvest fresh oysters. They take their time, enjoying every second of the experience and slurping up fresh oysters as they go.
The challenge: the chefs must prepare an oyster dish for Emeril. In the kitchen, there are five red aprons and five blue aprons. Red aprons will prepare hot dishes and the blue aprons will prepare cold dishes. The winner gets $5000.
I don't know about y'all, but I am super excited about the third season of Mob Wives. Honestly, I started watching it because I had to recap it, but now I am addicted. Adding Big Ang as comic relief totally won me over, and the women's crazy drama never fails to entertain.
All of the original ladies are returning, and Karen Gravano's friend Love Majewski will be joining the cast. Admittedly, I'm a tad frightened by her, and I've only see the trailer! Carla Facciolo seems to find her voice this season, following the golden rule of VH1 reality shows–"She who yells the loudest remains the most relevant." Renee Grazziano maintains her role as resident drama queen, while Drita D'Avanzo is trying to distance herself from her formerly violent ways. Ramona Rizzo isn't willing to follow in Drita's footsteps as far as that is concerned! It's going to be a crazy season, that's for sure!
Well, dear readers, thankfully the Mayan hype was just that…hype. We're now in the last week of 2012 (has it flown by as quickly for you as it did me?), and we need to focus on 2013. It's time for gorging on holiday leftovers and contemplating the last 365 days–or 265 days if you're RHOA'sPorsha Stewart. When it comes to making New Year's resolutions, I am absolutely horrible. Check that. I'm great at making them, but I'm awful at keeping them.
For 2013, I plan to eat healthier (the BoJangles drive-thru is just so delicious and convenient), write daily (for myself), cook more, and like wine less (bwahahahaha! Like that will ever happen!). I also pledge to spend more time with family and friends–it's my one easy given. I hate total failure. Finally, I resolve to train for the half-marathon I've been wanting to do, and this time around wogging (walk/jogging) three miles every other week just won't cut it. Thankfully, we've got some great tips from reality stars as to how to make our healthy resolutions an actuality. Fingers crossed.
First up? Real Housewives of New Jersey's controversial scene stealer is sharing a list of her ten healthiest tips…courtesy of her trainer. Celeb Buzz is reporting on how Teresa Giudice plans to maintain her svelte figure in the new year. The exercise-loving reality star reveals, “It is so rewarding how I feel at the end of the workout, I can’t wait to come back for more. One of the lessons I learned is that this is a lifestyle change. I’m not just here for a couple of months. I’m in it for the long haul.”
You know, ever since a little Dakota Fanning magnificently tackled playing a wise six-year-old in the very grown up movie I Am Sam, I knew she was going to have an amazing career…and she has. The actress has run the gamut by playing thought provoking and controversial roles throughout her tween and teen years while her Hollywood peers were partying hard and being typecast in every teen movie we've ever seen. Not only that, with a thriving and respected film career, Dakota managed to graduate high school (one she actually attended where she was a cheerleader and homecoming queen) and begin her studies at NYU. All the while, she's still picking roles that help hone her craft and catapult her into blockbuster status (thanks, Twilight!).
Proving that you can be a major star and not have your name in the tabloids every day (are you listening, LiLo?), Dakota has managed to stay under the radar regarding anything other than her career…until now. That's right. Dakota Fanning may be an award-winning actress, a serious college student, and an avoider of the negative limelight, but she's also an avid reality show watcher–and not just any reality show.

Courtland Rogers (Jenelle Evans' new husband for those out of the loop for the past few weeks) should maybe consider taking a small Twitter break. Marrying one of the most controversial Teen Moms has thrust him into the hotbed of negativity that follows Jenelle and he doesn't seem up for the challenge.
Courtland and Jenelle have been battling on Twitter with Taylor Lewis, the mother of his daughter, Jordan. In one of his latest fights with Taylor, they don't see eye to eye on visitation issues on Christmas Day. Courtland swears he wanted to see his daughter, Taylor swears she was waiting for him to show up all day, but he never did.
