On last night’s Survivor, Colton continued to play puppet master. The tribes divided, and one was a lot more stacked than the other…I’m just sayin’. Colton has his new tribe eating out of the palm of his uncalloused, manicured hand, and I want to reach through my screen and pluck one of his eyebrows more than the other so they’d look uneven. That’s true retaliation, let me tell you.
The Salani awake after not having to attend tribal council. They can’t believe that the men of Manono are such a mess. The women hope that the merge is impending, as they are now seven strong against the men’s crumbling brood. Jeff Probst invites the teams to the reward challenge and calls for a tribe switch. Colton looks like someone just yanked his favorite silver spoon right out of his mouth! The new teams will be chosen at random. Each player will receive an egg. Jeff will count down to when everyone can smash their egg against their chest. The color of the yolk will determine the new tribes. The blues are Salani while the orange is Manono. I will say, it seems the blue team got the best of both. It will be fun watching Colton and Alicia vie for attention on the new orange team.

Unless you’ve been in isolation for the past few weeks, you are well aware that Jersey Shore star Nicole “Snooki” Polizziis with child and engaged to boyfriend, Jionni Lavalle. Proving she’s a bit more calculated than her constantly drunk behavior lets on, the story was leaked to the media a month before Snooki announced it to the world, via her very own USWeekly cover, just like she was a real celebrity!
The news is out, and it’s now time for “sources” to pop and stir up drama about the reaction of her castmates. First up, a report on Hollywoodlife.com alleges Snooki’s spinoff co-star Jenni “JWoww” Farley is jealous of Snooki as she totally thought she’d be the first to be engaged. The source reveals: “JWoww really thought that she would get engaged to [boyfriend] Roger [Matthews]. Snooki got pregnant out of nowhere and that prompted her engagement. JWoww feels like Snooki keeps stealing the spotlight and everything is about her.”
The girls are currently filming their spin-off in Jersey City. It’s been rumored that due to this new development, the show had to change direction. Well, we certainly hope so! If they kept the show with the same themes, it may as well be turned into a documentary on the development of fetal alcohol syndrome. But, it’s easy to see why JWoww would feel left out. Pregnancy trumps everything.
One castmate who is not jealous is Sammi “Sweetheart” Giancola, a report in UsWeeklyquotes her as saying “Snooki is going to be a fun parent.” She makes a good point when she points out that it’s not like Snooki is a lost kid, saying “It’s not like she’s 16 and pregnant. She’s doing her thing, she’s living her life and I just think she’s blessed. I can’t wait to see a little guido or guidette running around. I just think it’s going to be so exciting.”
Aw, Sammi finally lives up to her nickname! Sammi is also excited for Snooki’s wedding, which will surely be a classy affair. Sammi envisions it like this: “I can see her having a cheetah or zebra print-themed wedding because she loves animal print. . .I’m excited for them. I just can’t wait to party for the wedding and do all the fun things she has coming in her life now.”
Finally, Deena Nicole, Snooki’s fellow “meatball” and frequent partner in crime has gone on the record to say that despite rumors of the show’s demise without Snooki, the GTL can go on. She says, “The show doesn’t revolve around Snooki, it’s all of us. I don’t see why we couldn’t film without her.”
Snooki has said she doesn’t want to go back to the show since she doesn’t want to be the “pregnant woman at the club” but Deena says she can come visit. “She could come down and we could throw her a little baby shower before the little meatball pops out.” It’d be an extra special Sunday dinner!
The finale of Jersey Shore season 5 airs tonight on MTV at 10/9c.

However, adding a last minute Bachelor contestant to the series is not a first for DWTS. If you recall, former Bachelor contestant Melissa Rycroft, was also a last minute add-in back in 2009, as she replaced an injured Nancy O’Dell, after being famously dumped by Jason Mesnick.
The decision to include Courtney, aka controversy on the show, also makes sense as the reaction from this season’s pick of “celebrities” has been very lackluster.
Adding more fire to the speculation, when contacted by PEOPLE, a rep for DWTS would only state: “We do not comment on casting rumors. You’ll have to tune in Monday and see.”
TELL US – ARE YOU SHOCKED THAT COURTNEY MIGHT BE JOINING DWTS? GREAT OR BAD MOVE BY ABC?
Well, the eighties happened and then they came back to haunt us. Last night’s episode of Real Housewives of Orange County might as well have been titled ‘What The Eff?’ I have no idea what was going on, either in the show or in Vicki’s head. There were so many meltdowns I couldn’t keep track! There was whining, crying, and screaming everywhere I turned. The only person not acting insane was the person about to undergo surgery to remove potentially cancerous tumors! Why is Briana a zillion times more mature than a pack of women twice her age?
Things begin at Tamra‘s ’80s themed Bunco party. The guys arrive all in period themed costumes; Slave stole Billy Ray Cyrus’ mullet, Eddie looks silly, and Terry bought his wig at Dollar General. It was fun. Vicki immediately freaked out upon seeing Slade and went off the deep-end. Tamra tried to include Brooks, but he couldn’t come. Alexis was pissed because Jim wasn’t invited–because no one likes him–although, Tamra claims he didn’t want to participate.

Since starting this blog back in 2009, I have blogged repeatedly about my dream housewives franchise, aka The Real Housewives of Dallas. And folks, sources are claiming to Reality Tea that it is finally happening! An insider sent us our first tip last week that Bravo has indeed cast a group of Texas women for the all new Dallas franchise! The source tells Reality Tea the show is currently in the early stages of production, adding that the cast "will start filming in August, and the show is supposed to air in early 2013." This news is somewhat of a surprise as just last June, Andy Cohen gave an interview in which he admitted Bravo had tried to get a Texas housewives franchise off the ground to no avail. "We’ve tried to mount a Texas (incarnation), but we never hit the nail on the head with casting," Andy told Variety. Well it seems they might have finally got the cast they wanted! The rumored cast list is below -
Lisa Troutt – Wife of Kenny Troutt; Owner of Excel Communication, Winner of the Kentucky Derby & Belmont.
Rhonda Aikman – Ex-Wife of Troy Aikman; Former Dallas Cowboys Quarterback.
Tiffany Mullen – Wife of Mike Mullen; CEO of Energy Equipment Resource Inc, Mullen went searching for a wife in 1998 on Oprah.
Deziree Ramirez – Fiance of Cory Harris; Former music producer, this couple is different from any of the other housewives, being the youngest, Ms. Ramirez is an heiress and is the granddaughter of the original founder of Cache/Lillie Rubin, she is also a Radio Personality, Business Woman, Author and Playboy Model & Actress.
Diane Gibby – Wife of Rod Rohrich; Dallas Top Plastic Surgeon. Diane is also a Plastic Surgeon and creator of Women's Center for Cosmetic and Plastic Surgery at Medical City.
Pictured above from left to right are Lisa, Rhonda, Diane, and Deziree. While Bravo is trying to keep the new series hush-hush, our insider confirms the cast finalized and signed their contracts two weeks ago. Our source assures us that the Dallas series "is surely going to be a wreck and different from all the other shows Bravo has had." C.A.N.N.O.T. W.A.I.T! The Real Housewives of Dallas would make the 8th housewives franchise for Bravo. TELL US – ARE YOU AS EXCITED ABOUT THE REAL HOUSEWIVES OF DALLAS AS I AM? WHAT TOOK BRAVO SO LONG?UPDATE – Andy Cohen is denying there is a Dallas franchise in the works via his Twitter page. We however had more than one source confirm this info to us, plus the series is still in the pre-production stage, meaning Bravo will likely do a test filming to make sure things are right before starting the actual filming in August. So we will wait and see! UPDATE #2 - Tiffany Mullen and Lisa Trout are denying being a part of the show. Lisa just released a statement to us, stating that while she is "familiar" with the Bravo series, she will not be a part of the cast. Her full statement is below -
“I have been apprised of a report including me in the cast of the ‘Real Housewives of Dallas.’ While I am familiar with the Bravo series, this information is completely erroneous. I am in no way associated with ‘Real Housewives of Dallas’ or Andy Cohen. I wish the show – and the ladies in the cast – much success.”
I think it’s fair to say that Ben Flajnik and Courtney Robertson‘s real world relationship has gotten off to a rough start. First, he admitted to dumping her after she was a royal twat to all the other women in the house, including making threatening comments about fellow contestant Emily O’Brien. Then, she has been begging the public to forgive her on national TV – and sadly it doesn’t seem to be working! And, he’s been accused of cheating after being caught on film kissing other women.
Instead of throwing in the towel, Ben and Courtney are making a concerted effort to make it work because their ABC contract demands it, but before we get to all that, Ben has possibly been caught, yet again, with another mystery woman. Good God, man – keep it in your pants!
Life & Style caught the terribly coiffed Bachelor joining a Courtney look-a-like for an alcohol-soaked picnic at San Francisco’s Tipsy Pig this past Sunday on March 11. Even more damning, in the photos below, the brunette was seen straddling a topless Ben and giving him a massage. Now, is that really the behavior of an engaged man? Not in the least! PHOTOS of Ben and the mystery woman are below!
“It seemed like they were close,” an eyewitness describes. And there was a whole lotta boozing going on! “They were drinking at the restaurant and at the park.” Ben was also caught hanging out with a different woman the night before! “Ben lit up when he saw a blonde woman he knew in the restaurant. He got up from his seat at the table and greeted her with a quick peck on the lips. He insisted she sit down at his table,” a bystander reports. “He had his arm around her hugging her. They both seemed happy and really into the conversation.”
Later that same evening, Ben was seen hopping into a cab with yet a different woman. A source claims they were just sharing a ride and he dropped her off at her place before heading home. A likely story…
How is Courtney handling all the news of her fiancé’s womanizing? She allegedly doesn’t care! And furthermore, all her televised apologizing and crying was a ruse! “Courtney’s tears are all bulls—. She wants to get everything she can out of this,” the insider claims. “And don’t feel bad for Ben either,” the insider insists. “His winery is doing well, so it’s a win-win for both of them.”
“They’re going to milk it as long as they can,” the insider adds.
And indeed that appears to be the case. In a new inteview for PEOPLE magazine, Ben talks his decision to rekindle things with Courtney and give her another chance, despite her catty behavior and idiosyncrasies. Ben hopes “people will get a better understanding of who we are and why we’re still together.”
So what does Ben see in Little Miss Crazy? Apparently, she continually questioned him! “She was one of the only girls on the show that questioned the experience and that’s what I found attractive about her – and I still do. Courtney was always like, ‘I’ve only been on two dates with you, why should I bring you home? My family is really important to me,’” Ben reveals.
“It was like finally, someone who asks the right questions instead of [saying], ‘My family is going to love you and it’s going to be wonderful and we could be married for the rest of our lives.’ ” Yep, Courtney came right out questioning the asinine Bachelor ways, despite signing on to appear with the so-called intentions of meeting her future husband.
As for how Ben anticipates things going in the future, he is confident! “Maybe someday people will get behind us, but for now we work really well together,” he explains. “The Bachelor will not define me as a person. This will be a blip in a few years.” Well, at least that’s a pragmatic approach!
It seems Courtney is in agreement, and according to Wetpaint she is planning to move to San Francisco. “That’s definitely happening, although it’s not something they’re going to do overnight,” an insider explains of their planned living arrangements.
“For now, Courtney will start spending weekends up there getting familiar with Ben’s life and his friends. And Ben’s going to make trips down to LA to do the same thing — meet Courtney’s friends and spend time with them.” I have a feeling Courtney is not going to like most of Ben’s friends as they seem to be mostly women – which we know she has difficulty with!
“They will start looking for a place to live together in Northern California. That’s where his business is and where his whole life is. Courtney’s looking forward to the move. They truly care about each other and they’re excited about this next chapter.”
The insider adds that Ben and Courtney aren’t interested in doing a big media tour either. Which sounds doubtful to me, given Ben just admitted neither one of them joined the show for love. “They have a few media obligations to fulfill as part of their contracts, like the cover of People magazine, which comes out this week, “ the insider asserts. “But other than those few commitments, they’re not interested in a big press tour. They’re just looking forward to spending some quality alone time with each other.”
Perhaps, this is the case of two skeptical people who just happened to fall in love on television and now want to be happy together, but frankly I don’t believe it!
WILL BEN AND COURTNEY MOVE IN TOGETHER? WHAT IS HE DOING WITH ALL THESE OTHER WOMEN? IS THIS A PUBLICITY STUNT OR ARE THEY TRULY IN LOVE?

Bringing you an all new Real Housewives of New Jersey photo post!Melissa Gorga, step ‘n’ repeat lovin’ queen, recently hawked her wares at the Philadelphia Flower Show. Melissa is the spokeswomen for Voli Lyte Vodka and she hosted a bottle signing for fans at the nation’s largest flower expo. What violets have to do with vodka, I don’t really know, but perhaps a whole lotta gardeners wanted to get their low-cal drink on.
The event took place at the Philadelphia Convention Center and of course hubby, Joe Gorga was right by her side. So, um… what is his job again, because he spends an awful lot of time Slade Smiley-ing it up beside his ever-in-the-spotlight wife. Photos of Melissa looking pretty in pink are below!
Moving on, Teresa Giudice is surprising people on Celebrity Apprentice because she’s acting like a normal human being. Yes, that’s right, she hasn’t really had any serious issues with anyone. Yet! Even Donald Trump has been thus far disappointed with her less than psychotic behavior. Really, what other reason was there for him to cast her on the show? We viewers expect the cray-cray and without that, it’s well, dreary.
Apparently, that’s just how she planned things and this is the “real” Teresa. In a new interview with The Huffington Post, Teresa talks appearing on the show, and admits that while things got catty she, surprisingly, kept it in check. “Everyone will see me in a different light as a businesswoman and, of course, it’s for charity,” Teresa insisted to Rob Shuter on the set of “New York Live.”
“We were asked to do tasks and we are all there to raise a lot of money for our charities. You will see a different side of me, I’m very focused,” she continues.
Teresa explains she wasn’t nervous as she already put so much of her very chaotic life on television through RHONJ and was prepared for the challenges of filming, nevertheless it is a drastically different reality show.
“It’s totally different,” Teresa describes. “We are working 20 hours a day. Getting up at 4:30 a.m. and sometimes working until 2:00 in the morning, but overall I have to say it was an amazing experience.”
And the show empowered her. “If I had to do it all over again I would. I now feel like I can conquer anything.” Hopefully that includes repaying her debts!

It was the tribal council heard round the world…you know, the one the men’s winning tribe shouldn’t have even been attending. Survivor fans witnessed a great deal of ignorance from Colton Cumbie, the homosexual, rich, Republican, college student who grew up in Alabama charging everything to his parents’ credit cards and hanging out at the country club.
Colton, who fancies himself the leader of the Manono (having received the immunity idol from the women doesn’t hurt his rank either), unleashed some ugly on his hated nemesis, poor stand-up comic Bill Posely. As his tribe mates looked on, most staying silent, Bill was voted off the show. As he said his parting words, Bill displayed, in my opinion, a great deal of class in his dismissal.
In an interview with People.com, Bill opens about why he decided to agree with the Manono to give up immunity to the losing Salani - a first in the history of the show, as well his thoughts on “spoiled brat” Colton. Read that interview below.
Why would you agree to give up immunity?!
I thought I had guys like Jonas, Troy, Matt and Jay on my side and that I could get them to help me blindside Colton. I figured we could go in to Tribal Council and reveal Colton for who he is. I didn’t know how much power Colton had. I didn’t know he didn’t like me. I didn’t even know he had an idol until Leif said something. It all came crashing down at Tribal Council.
Why did Colton have such an issue with you?
I think that the tribe gave me a lot of attention when I was being funny and goofing off and unfortunately it took the spotlight off of him. I think he was used to being in control of his life. He hated having a lot of attention being on someone else.
Your confrontation with him at camp was very heated.
I tried to go up and make some sort of offer of the olive branch and see if we could talk this out, but he didn’t want to talk. Finally I was fed up with playing nice. Nobody else was standing up to him and I couldn’t take it anymore, so I said what I feel like everybody needed to be saying: “He’s a spoiled brat and can’t talk to anybody the way he wants to.”
Colton called Leif a munchkin and an Oompa Loompa.
It is horrible. Colton comes from a spoiled, sheltered, ignorant background. To be able to go to your church with your boyfriend and live with him as an openly gay man and not be persecuted and ridiculed in a town in Alabama – that’s so rare. He was never persecuted and ridiculed because his family is so affluent and they spoil him. He doesn’t know the hurt that a guy like Leif had to deal with his whole life. Colton doesn’t know how it is to be picked on so he thinks its okay to call Leif a munchkin or Oompa Loompa. He thinks it’s okay to call me ghetto trash and say that I should kill myself. It’s crazy.
You two had it out at Tribal Council.
He said in Tribal that he “doesn’t associate himself with poor people” and to “take my broke ass home.” I think it was just a classist thing. He’s ignorant and just didn’t like that I was from a different walk of life than him. To have everyone sit quietly while Colton said those things about me was hard.
Tarzan spoke up.
For him to defend Colton after what he had heard was appalling.
Did you take anything positive out of this experience?
I had a mom write to me and tell me her and her daughter were tearing up listening to me talk at Tribal and were so sad about what Colton had said. I thought I would be the funny guy not somebody that people would be inspired by.
As one would expect, Colton is quick to respond to Bill’s statements, and like any good reality star, he’s learned that Twitter is where people air their dirty laundry regarding their celebreality peers. After receiving well-deserved backlash, Colton took to the twitterverse to defend himself and apologize…sort of…okay, not really.
The controversial Survivor tweeted recently, “Were my comments ignorant? YES! They were meant to be funny..I see they weren’t. Do I regret them? I’m torn. In a way, yes b/c it hurt ppl.”
He continued, in 140 characters or less, by stating, “..but seeing myself act that way on television helps me to grow as a person b/c it’s uncomfortable and embarrassing for ME to watch. It’s kind of one of those situations where you you don’t really realize how you sound until it’s played back and you’re literally cringing..”
Colton sums up his response tweets with the following nugget, admitting, “I seriously don’t hate anyone. I make fun of MYSELF..my sense of humor as always been kind sarcastic and somewhat critical. I call myself a “queen” as a joke. Am I a bigot? I don’t think so. I think I was a 20 year old brat who had never been out into the real world, and what I thought was funny and ok wasn’t. I’ve learned I can still be funny and it doesn’t have to be at the expense of some1 else. *pageant wave*”
Well, I’m happy that both he and Bill can agree that Colton acted like a total brat, at the very least. I’m all about letting stupid behavior slide (you have to when part of your job involves writing about Kim Kardashian!), but I can’t help but think that Colton is trying to do more damage control and less soul-searching. Here’s hoping Jeff Probst *pageant waves* him out of tribal council sooner rather than later!
WHAT DO YOU THINK OF BILL’S INTERVIEW? DO YOU BELIEVE THAT COLTON WAS TRYING TO BE FUNNY? ARE HIS TWEET SINCERE? HOW MUCH LONGER DO YOU THINK COLTON WILL LAST ON THE SHOW?
