This week on the Bachelorette, Emily Maynard visits the hometowns of the final four suckers for a pretty blonde – Chris Bukowski, Jef Holm, Arie Luyendyk, Jr., and Sean Lowe. Matching the rest of the season, it’s one of the most uneventful hometown episodes ever. There are the standard meets and greets, uneaten dinners, one-on-one grilling sessions, and claims of love. Emily’s conversations mostly fall flat, as she’s seriously lacking personality. Yet, as always, the families are completely willing to accept Emily into their lives after spending just two hours with her.
Before she begins the visits, Emily heads home to Charlotte to see Ricki. While she’s there, she thinks about the final four men. According to Emily:
Chris is sweet and open. Jef has the edge that Emily looks for in a guy, and she feels comfortable with him. Emily felt an immediate connection with Arie. He brings fun and excitement into her life. (And he’s a really good kisser.) Sean makes Emily feel safe. Sean is “perfect.”
Lifetime hasn’t officially announced it but, apparently, Project Runway All Stars is gearing up for a second season… of all stars. How many all stars do they have exactly?
PEOPLE spotted the soon-to-be-divorced, former Scientologist waxdummy, Katie Holmes filming for the upcoming sequel on Monday. Katie apparently made good on her committment to the Klumster and Co. despite also filing for divorce from Tom-tologist.
Katie will be appearing as a guest judge in the upcoming season – and according to regular judge and bean spiller, Isaac Mizrahi, “She did great.”
When can we–and I mean “we, as a society” (five dollars to those who caught the Friends reference) stop glorifying bad behavior? Geez Louise. Casey Anthony was acquitted in the death of her two-year-old daughter Caylee, but it seems like the former party girl, who has been in seclusion, is trying to revamp her image. Barf. Gag. Vomit.
A source close to Casey tell RadarOnline.com, “She loves being notorious. One day she said, ‘I need to work on my brand,’ which is so strange for me and so foreign from what she should be doing. I said, Casey, what brand? You’re not selling anything. You’re a lost girl who got in a lot of trouble.’” To said anonymous insider, I say, why are you still friends with her? Credibility? Not so much.
It seems that there is a lot going on behind the scenes of NBC’s answer to Project Runway. First off? Host and supermodel Elle MacPherson won’t be returning. Gearlive.com reports that Elle is calling it quits for season two. She says, “I have been involved with Fashion Star from the beginning, and am very proud to see it come to life, not only in America but globally. The show is in great hands, and although I will not be hosting this season, I will still be very involved [and] will be reviewing the format for the upcoming season.”
That’s code for “artistic differences” isn’t it? Answer me, Austin Scarlett! Not only will Elle be hanging up her hosting cap, but sponsor and affordable fashion house H&M is also bidding adieu to the series. Reportedly sticking around? Hosts Nicole Richie, John Varvatos, and new mom Jessica Simpson.
WILL YOU WATCH FASHION STAR WITHOUT ELLE? WHERE YOU WATCHING BEFOREHAND?
“I look at the iconic women who’ve had trials and tribulations in their lives, and “I don’t pretend to be an ordinary housewife” from Elizabeth Taylor comes to mind. I’ll address my fans soon enough and appreciate all your positive thoughts and comments. Love~Vicki”
Awwww…don’t drag my Liz Taylor into this mess. First, Jill Zarin nabs her jewels, then Lindsay Lohanruins plays her in a movie role, and now this. She doesn’t deserve it!
Ok, it’s that time again! Reality Tea’s Booze ‘N Books Club! With zillions of reality stars – and new ones popping up every second – and each one with something to sell, we here at Reality Tea decided to test out some of these fetes of literary greatness. And what goes better with books that are badly written than cocktails? So we thought we’d try something fun and review some of these gems!
Each month Reality Tea will be reviewing both a book and a cocktail. Last month we reviewed Teresa Giudice‘s third cookbook, Fabulicious: Fast & Fit and her Fabellini Cocktail. While the recipes and igredences in the cookbook were pretty good, the cocktail had me reminiscing about college memories slurping up the Boone’s Farm in a frat house. I was a classy girl, alright.
This month we’re honoring the OG of the Housewives franchises, Vicki Gunvalson and taking a look-see through her self-help/memoir More Than A Housewife: Talent! Purpose! Direction! Drive! Yep, that’s the title in its entirety. The Real Housewives of Orange County star wants you to know that you too can be an insurance megastar (and meet a winner like Brooks Ayers at conventions! Enticing, no?) if only you learn from her experiences.
I was hoping for some killer throwback photos of Vicki and co. in the good old days, but yeah there were none. We also reviewed the offerings of Wines By Wives. Now there’s nothing I love more than a bottle of red, but a memoir sans childhood photos? Not so much!

Say what?! Andy uses graphs and charts to cast the crazy?! According to a new interview with AdAge, Andy credited research for the reasoning behind the firings. “We snort up research like fine Colombian cocaine,” he admitted of the Bravomeisters approach to determining what viewers want.
“I love Twitter because it’s a live focus group,” said Andy, explaining that one reason certain cast members of RHONY were let go was because of negative feedback about them on social media.
