The rule of thumb for VH1? If a show brings the brawls and the drama, by all means give it a spin-off! The most recent phenomenon is Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta. After a very glossy introduction, it seems more like I’m watching night time soap (which, let’s call a spade a spade…) than a reality show. The series promises a lot of skin, a lot of crying, and, of course, a lot of drama. This isn’t Bravo’s Atlanta, that’s for sure, although I’d love to see a Phaedra Parks crossover since she’s friends with Rasheeda. Make it happen, Apollo!
We meet Mimi Faust and her boyfriend of fifteen plus years, Grammy winning record producer Stevie J. They have a two-year-old daughter together, and Mimi is more than ready for her beau to step up to the plate. Mimi is done turning a blind eye to his after-hour antics. After over fifteen years, I’d say he’s probably used to getting his own way. Stevie surprises Mimi with a beautiful home way outside of Atlanta for her and their daughter. Basically, he wants to move her far away so he can “do him” in the ATL. She wishes that he wanted the house to be for the three of them, and he seems to think she is being ungrateful. So, I’m guessing we’re going to watch yet another season of women who complain that the men in their lives are dirty dogs, yet they do nothing to change their situation. Glad I tuned in!
Do the stars of Teen Mom ever make any good decisions? Ever? Seriously… Anyway in the newest ridiculous story, Chelsea Houska allegedly has big plans to pose for Playboy!
Last week, RadarOnline reported that Chelsea’s brand new website, which she had hired a designer to build, had been shut down for unpaid bills. Chelsea denies that of course, tweeting: “I decided to not work with the person running it and obviously they’re a little butt hurt.”
Well now the spurned and looking for a check web designer is spilling some secrets about Chelsea – including that she is angling to be a centerfold!
This week on The Bachelorette, Emily Maynard and her minions are in Croatia. The previews suggest that Ryan Bowers is the punching bag of the week. Also, we should expect lots of kissing and some drama at the rose ceremony. Could it be? Really for real – the most shocking rose ceremony ever?!?
According to Jef Holm, Croatia is the perfect place to fall in love. I beg to differ. I met my (now) husband at Wal-Mart 16 years ago, and he’s been wooing me ever since. Croatia vs. Wal-Mart – really, it’s no contest. The always-classy Wal-Mart wins, right? If Emily insists on making it complicated, we might as well see what Croatia has to offer.
Emily surprises the guys by hand delivering the first date card. It goes to Travis Pope and reads, “Let’s look for love beyond the walls.” Travis was engaged once before. He says, “When it didn’t work out, it was the lowest point in my life.” Lower than befriending an ostrich egg and naming it Shelly? Wow. That must have been really low.
Speaking to the NY Daily News, Bethenny says that she is responsible for Aviva getting her new job! “I actually cast one of them,” she claims. “I cast Aviva. I’m the reason she’s on the show.”
Bethenny says she knows Aviva through a mutual friend. “She is from the upper East Side of Manhattan and was married to somebody that I know,” Bethenny shares. Please tell me Bethenny didn’t also sleep with Aviva’s ex-husband, Harry! “She just seemed like she’d be a good character. She seemed like she’d be part of some drama also on the show.”
Teen Mom star Catelynn Lowell definitely put those baby rumors to rest! The reality star has gone through a major weight loss!
Catelynn and her fiance Tyler Baltierra took to Twitter to show off her new slim figure! Catelynn writes, “Ohhhh look at me now!!!” and Tyler gushed over her new figure, too. Tyler posted the shot of her in the red tank top with “See her now! #freakingloveher”.
Catelynn should be proud, she looks fantastic! I wonder if she’ll share what successful plan she used to achieve her weight loss. I’m thinking she did it the old fashion way – with diet and exercise. Catelynn Tweeted that she’s been hitting the gym. “At the gym! #feelingsexyandfree”.
Rumors have been swirling about the cast of next season’s Basketball Wives. Have Jenn Williams, Kesha Nichols, and Royce Reed been handed their walking papers? While Jenn and Kesha have remained mum on the gossip, both Royce and producer/Queen Bee Shaunie O’Neal have taken to twitter (where else?) to add their two cents. Deny, deny, deny! Shocking, I know.
After the news broke, Royce tweeted, “This is so entertaining!!! Gotta love TMZ!”
Shaunie chose to respond in a manner that didn’t really answer any definitive questions. It’s not surprising, knowing how well she’s mastered the ability to double talk. She responded to a follower’s question about the firings by saying, “Let’s just say… I will not entertain anything but the truth hence me not replying 2 this RUMOR of the day.” So…what you’re saying is?
Oh, Aubrey O’Day. Slowly back away from the tanning spray. STAT.
The former Celebrity Apprentice contestant headed to Vegas this weekend to host “Rehab Sundays” at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino looking like fifty shades of orange/bronze/brown/and some other color not found in nature.
She hit the red carpet in a risque and revealing swimsuit with a tiger on the front and showed off her sharp-pointed nails. Also joining her on the red carpet were her dogs, Mary Ann and Ginger. I don’t know about you, but I always bring my dogs along for a pool party at a hotel, don’t you? Especially while sporting dagger-like nails that could probably injure said puppies.
And that ring on the right looks like the engagement ring that Edward gave Bella in Twilight - only if they lived in New Jersey and their last names were Gorga and/or Giudice.
No good deed goes unpunished! Following last week’s epic Jersey Shorebar brawl, the cast members are being taken to court! Justin Viterito and Devon Chichele, two of the victims in the fight, are planning a massive lawsuit against Ronnie Ortiz-Magro, J-Woww‘s boyfriend Roger Matthews, MTV, Viacom (the company that owns MTV), the bar’s bouncer, and Bamboo Bar where the brawl took place!
The fight began innocently enough, but quickly spiraled out of control. According to TMZ, Justin Viterito was drinking with Ronnie and Roger but when Devon Chichele approached to find his friend a member of the Jersey Shore entourage “pushed him in the back,” says their lawyer Matthew DiBrino.
Mr. DiBrino alleges that Justin went to help Devon but was physically assaulted by Ronnie in the process after the bouncer held Justin in a headlock allowing Ronnie to hit him in the face.
