Here's a 'would you rather' scenario, courtesy of Shahs of Sunset. Would you rather see Mike Shouhed in the buff or be styled by Reza Farahan? Of course, that may not be the most difficult of decisions…
Two of the stars of the Bravo hit are focusing on clothing this week…one is hellbent on taking it off while the other fancies himself a designer. I don't doubt you can guess who is doing what, right? Mike is excited to bare it all for Playgirl, and he is revealing that he's not the only one who is thrilled with the news. Meanwhile, Reza is teaming up with a family member to market a new clothing line.
Love & Hip Hop returned last night with a vengeance. Apparently the cast had a lot of fights to make up for after being off the air for a week. Almost every story line incorporated a screaming match, if not a physical altercation. Keeping it classy as always, VH1!
The episode begins as Erica Mena and Rich Dollaz are celebrating her success in the recording studio. She is ready to start on the video, and Rich teases her for being demanding. He wants the pair to sign a contract. Rich isn't going to ask for any favors just because Erica is his girlfriend. She wants to be cautious with her career.
Lore'l is working on her music, and Winter Amos comes to see her at the studio. Winter wants to help her friend reach her potential. She wants to know why Lore'l hasn't already become the next big thing. Lore'l has broken Business 101, and she's being managed by one of her good friends. Winter thinks this is a huge issue, and she plants the seed in Lore'l's head to look for better management.
Oh sweet Jesus is there really more back and forth between Brandi Glanville and Adrienne Maloof? Yes – of course! While that mess is still ongoing it seems Brandi is willing to put one acrimonious feud behind her!
And one person who is totally in agreement with that idea is friend (and support system) Yolanda Foster! “I made Brandi promise me this week that once her book tour is over she will never say her name again,” Yolanda shared with Perez Hilton. “At some point you need to move on. There’s children involved, so hopefully she can keep her word.”
Yolanda, you and me both. If I ever have to hear LeAnn Rimes' name again, I may turn to drinking and tweeting!
The short recap: Lilly annoys. Asa mouths wow and Mike smiles pretty. Mean girls Asa and Reza attack GG and MJ. Asa mouths wow and Mike smiles pretty. Reza pouts when he doesn't get enough attention. Asa mouths wow and Mike smiles pretty. I pretend Lilly's hair and boobs form an alliance to take down Asa and Reza.
I guess you're not technically an MTV reality star if you don't start getting caught for stupid stuff the second you get a taste of fame. Just ask the girls of Teen Mom…am I right? Now, the ridiculous kids of Buckwild are vying for their spot among the dumbest of the dumb.
First Salwa Amin was arrested last week for possession of drug with intent to distribute, and now her co-star Michael Burford is getting his own mugshot after being busted for DUI. Congratulations, idiot.
Serious question…did any of you watch the X Factor? I kept up with some of gossip, but I prefer The Voice. It seems that the talent show just can't seem to get it together as far as judges are concerned (see you later, Britney Spears!), and now there are rumors that one of the hosts is on the chopping block.
Since brief stint on the show, Khloe Kardashian has been criticized for being awkward and orchestrating nip slips. There was even a rumor that was being paid by The Voice to do such a horrible job. That's bad! Of course, I highly doubt that Khloe was getting cash for her craptastic hosting (it would almost be better if she were…), but the poor girl has no experience other than ridiculous reality shows. Now, sources are alleging that she may not be back next season.
Last night's episode of Mob Wives was very difficult to watch. I recapped with a lump in my throat, but it was amazing to see the people of Staten Island come together and help one another. Instead of brawling and screaming, Karen Gravano, Ramona Rizzo, Big Ang, and Drita D'avanzo collected donations and cooked meals for shelters. Renee Graziano completed rehab and had a break through moment with son AJ. It was the "realest" reality I've seen from a VH1 show ever.
The footage of the wreckage after Sandy is devastating, and the women are reacting to the carnage. The community is pulling together to help their neighbors. A tearful Drita is talking to her daughters while collecting items to donate. It is heartbreaking to see actual reality happening on reality television. Ramona and Karen are going to help their friend whose home was damaged. Ramona realizes how fortunate she is that her house escaped any damage.
Carla goes to check on Ang who is cooking up a storm for Sandy victims. Both Carla and Ang can't believe the destruction that Sandy brought to Staten Island. Both of their homes are okay, but they share stories of friends and relatives who lost everything. Ang reveals that she lost her new salon in the storm, but she doesn't care after seeing how lucky she was compared to others. She's heading up a donation drop-off at the Drunken Monkey. Ang explains that there are so many people willing to help that she had to find a school bus to house all of the items.
Caroline was seen meeting with one Dr. Dov Rand learning about treatments for her foul mood. Hopefully she didn't listen too carefully to his advice, because Starcasm reports the good doctor is headed to jail for the next five months and was just fined $30,000!
Dr. Rand pleaded guilty in federal court for accepting kickbacks in exchange for patient referrals to Orange Community MRI. Dr. Rand, along with 12 other NJ doctors, were arrested last December and charged with taking money in exchange for recommending Medicare and Medicaid patients for tests they may not necessarily need.
