Previously on Top Chef: Beverly gets sent home and Charlize Theron was awesome and beautiful.
We return to Top Chef:Texas with the chefs in the stew room going over Beverly‘s departure. Grayson talking-heads that she’ll miss her while the other chefs are either hiding their feelings or just don’t seem to care.
All of a sudden an angel walks in, a.k.a. Charlize Theron, and she thanks the chefs and calls herself a “huge nerd.” No, Charlize, people currently on their 98th consecutive hour of playing Skyrim while on a Mountain Dew drip are huge nerds. You are a pretty actress.
With the stew room properly blessed, we move on to the rest of the episode and the quick fire challenge, this time being judged by Padma, Emeril Lagasse and Cat Cora, who also has a new Bravo show coming up soon, Around The World In 80 Plates (Bravo doing cross-promotion, SHOCKING!!)

Next month marks The Amazing Race‘s 20th season as the ultimate competition reality show! Eleven new teams will travel around the globe to 22 cities and nearly 400,000 miles in the hopes of winning the $1 million dollar grand prize!
Among some of the crazy challenges the teams will face is skydiving in Argentina, training with Masai warriors in Tanzania and racing through Africa’s “Garden of Eden.” The teams will also embark on a culinary tour of Italy (color me jealous!) and visit King Ludwig’s quarters in the German castle that served as the inspiration for Sleeping Beauty’s castle in the infamous fairytale. Color me jealous, again!
Best known for her on-again, off-again relationship with co-star Ronnie, Jersey Shore‘s Sammi Sweetheart also wants the world to know she’s just a regular gal. With a lot of money from a reality show. And a perfume. You know, like us normal girls.
In an interview with Naughty But Nice Rob, Sammi says that despite the show’s massive success she is still the same, proclaiming “I am just myself and I like being me. I am still doing the same things that I was doing prior to the show. I am just me.”
When asked about how her more famous co-stars were doing, she kept it nice: “I don’t know if the show changed them. I think they look fabulous and they are doing great.”
Of her post-show plans, Sammi said she wanted most to return to school and finish her degree, telling Rob she has “one semester left.” She is quick to point out that despite their on-screen antics, there are brains amongst the crew: “What’s cool is Vinnyhas his degree, but most of us went to college, even though no one knows that. We all are very smart in our own way.”
While I don’t think we’ll be seeing any of the Jersey Shore discussing economic policy over shots any time soon, there is something to Sammi’s statement that the gang certainly has smarts, especially when it comes to self-promotion. Sammi also revealed that Snooki went to college though it’s safe to assume she didn’t quite finish.
For example, the female cast members have all started to post no-makeup photos following the success of Sammi’s “makeunder” from xoJane.com. Snooki followed with her own no-makeup pics and now Deena Cortese has joined in, posting the following au naturel photos to her Twitter account this week. Those photos are below!
Snooki on the other hand is back to her usual and posted a few new bikini photos, hinting these might go on the cover of her new book. (Yes, Snooki is releasing another literary tome for the masses!) Those pics are also below!
A new episode of the Jersey Shore airs tonight on MTV (10/9c).

Taylor Armstrong is fond of saying that the ladies of Real Housewives of Beverly Hillsare like family and the cast is very close; providing an unwavering source of support to each other. New information is now claiming that couldn’t be farther from the truth. Surprised?
Sources have reported that most of the ladies do not spend time together away from filming and even worse, the ladies are starting to distance themselves from Taylor because they question the validity of her domestic abuse claims!
“Taylor told the other women about her abuse, but her stories didn’t match up,” a show insider disclosed to RadarOnline. “They thought that maybe she wasn’t telling the truth about how Russell [Armstrong] was treating her.”
“Each time Taylor would talk about the domestic abuse her story would change, and the ladies started to think that she wasn’t being honest about what was happening,” the insider describes.
“The other Housewives didn’t understand why Taylor would claim that Russell was abusing her but would stay with him and not take care of the problem,” the source said. “They all offered her help to get out of the situation, but she didn’t do anything.” Additionally, the details Taylor shared were always nebulous and inconsistent, which further raised red flags amongst her co-stars.
“Taylor’s stories about the abuse would change and she would amp up the details of the violence so the other women started to doubt any part of her story,” the source continues, explaining that the women believe Taylor exaggerated the claims to add drama to her own life.
And likely to remain integral to the show! Indeed, Taylor was able to garner her own storyline this season, as Bravo focused nearly every event around what was really happening in her troubled marriage. While Taylor may have gotten a lot of attention it wasn’t exactly positive.
Many fans suspected that Adrienne Maloofand Camille Grammer were doubtful about Taylor’s version of events, evident by their treatment of the matter during this season. Perhaps, the fans were right and the ladies suspected all along that something didn’t add up!
Describing joining the group as “traumatizing,” Brandi explains there is definitely an initiation to join the aging mean girls club. “You have to get jumped into the gang. It was like my initiation.”
“I’m really not a fighter,” Brandi clarified. “I mean I will fight back, but I don’t really start fights. It’s not in me to do it. But don’t mess with me, because I’m crazy.”
Brandi, who only knew Adrienne casually before joining the cast, admits she was totally surprised by the behavior of some of her co-stars. And she compares spending time with the ladies to babysitting! “This is worse than baby-sitting a bunch of kids!,” Brandi laughed. “it was just, like, cray-cray!”
Brandi found herself butting heads with Kyle the most out of all the ladies and the two still have a chaotic relationship. “It’s like going around in circles,” Brandi explained of her up and down friendship with Kyle. “It’s good one day and then it’s bad the next day.”
“Part of me really likes Kyle, and then part of me doesn’t,” Brandi admitted. “If you have that in you, to be that mean, that’s a little bit scary.” Brandi is still reeling from her experience at the infamous game night and she blames Kyle for most of what happened! “Kim can’t really take responsibility for her actions because she wasn’t well at the time,” Brandi explained. “Kyle doesn’t have a problem, so I can’t give her any excuses, except for just bad behavior.”
Regardless of how things ended with Kim this season, Brandi feels the two could “easily start over when she’s in a better space.” Brandi is also happy that Kim has gotten the help she needed. “I was really happy for her family. She’s a mom and everyone cares about her, so obviously there’s some good in her. She just has to get better.”
Brandi admits she doesn’t know how things are going for Kim post-rehab because she hasn’t talked to anyone that would know. She calls the situation a “touchy subject.”
As for some of the positives of joining the show, Brandi reveals she sees Camille “off camera” and also has a good friendship with Lisa Vanderpump, which seemed evident on their recent appearance on Watch What Happens Live!
Brandi claims one reason she really gets along with Lisa is that most of the other ladies are “really sensitive, and there’s no joking!” Where as Lisa and her both have their “minds in the gutter.” As for joking around with the brunette Richards sister, Brandi sums it up as, “I’m not messing with Kyle!” I couldn’t have said it better myself.
As for coming back for a second season, Brandi isn’t committing just yet. “I’m kind of weighing my options right now and deciding if this is the right place for me to be.” You can catch Brandi’s full interview in the video below!

On last night’s Teen Mom, emotions, not rational thought, reigned supreme. I’m sure you’re thinking, ‘what else is new?’
Corey is working to secure a better job as a coal miner. He and Leah go to look at a piece of land where they could put a nicer trailer — it’s closer to town and the schools will better for the girls. Leah begins to look online for a new mobile home. Is Leah wearing a wig? Leah is excited to be a coal miner’s wife, especially due to better insurance and a closer proximity to Ali’s doctor.
Kailyn and Jo fought previously about Isaac’s child support and she is patiently waiting for his first payment. After a quick check of the mail, she receives a petition from Jo about why he shouldn’t be asked to pay that much support. She fills in poor Isaac on the discontent between she and his father, reading the petition to the toddler and explaining her side of things. I fully realize that the one-year-old has no clue what she is talking about, but still, I don’t think she needs to get into the habit of bashing Jo to his son.

With the new season of Bethenny Ever After upon us, it’s only natural that Bethenny Frankel will be in the media every other week. In the latest, the unfiltered reality star famous for her c*ck talk is dishing on her marriage and admitting she’s been way too busy to get busy with that husband of hers!
In a recent interview with Life & Style, Bethenny admits, “My marriage is not perfect.” Apparently the couple, who is running Bethenny’s Skinnygirl empire, filming a staged reality show as well as parenting 20-month-old Bryn don’t have time left over for any sexy times. “Intimacy is challenging,” Bethenny confesses. “Jason [Hoppy]‘s penis has cobwebs on it.” And thanks for that visual I never wanted, B!
According to Bethenny, she “unintentionally crammed everything in” at once and went from single Housewife to being a very married mommy, as well as the star of her own show and running a huge business; the combination of which hasn’t allowed much time for she and Jason to focus on being a couple. “I’ve always been good at business, but I’ve always struggled with relationships.”
“Jason and I are just settling into what married life really is, without the excitement of a wedding and the baby,” Bethenny reveals. “We come from totally different backgrounds, and we’re going through it.”
While Bethenny may be completely content spilling her guts to the media and fans, it seems her husband is getting a little tired of the nonstop attention on his nether region! The Chicago-Sun Times is reporting that Jason is “absolutely enraged by Bethenny publicly talking about their sex life and personal problems.” Particularly dishing about how often they have sex!
Jason is also allegedly annoyed with Bethenny’s mother, Bernadette Birk commenting on their marriage! The source claims Jason is flabbergasted “by the nerve of her estranged mother selling a divorce story about them to one of the supermarket magazines.” The source adds that Bernadette “clearly has no clue about what’s really going on in Bethenny’s life — let alone her marriage.”
Bethenny reportedly hasn’t spoken to Bernadette in years and wouldn’t even allow her to visit the hospital after Bryn was born. Bernadette retaliated by going on a tabloid tantrum and insisting Bethenny’s marriage is destined for divorce!
Bethenny admitted to Life & Style that she is still “in therapy” in an attempt to get her marriage on the right track. I’m sure we’ll be watching the sessions very soon on television. A long-time associate of Bethenny’s spoke to the paper and is denying Bethenny’s dedication to her husband. “She’s all about money and business and doesn’t give a crap about Jason.”
I have to wonder if the lack of couple time, along with Jason’s frustrations about their relationship being in the spotlight led to Bethenny’s decision to potentially pull the plug on her show? If so — thanks for that, Jason! And I mean it.
IS REALITY TV NEGATIVELY AFFECTING BETHENNY’S MARRIAGE? DOES JASON HAVE A RIGHT TO BE ANNOYED BY HER COMMENTS?
In the approximately five billion years it has taken to shoot the re-tooled fifth season of Real Housewives of New York, the ladies get to go on yet another Bravo-sponsored vacation.
If you recall, earlier reports leaked that the gals had taken a trip to London in addition to a trip to South Beach which gifted us these photos. Now that it’s winter, the cast headed down to St. Barts.
Meanwhile, the NY Post wrote a scathing report about newbie Carole. According to The Post, Carole, who is related to the Kennedys by marriage, is failing to bring any class to the show. The report states that while filming in St. Barts, Carole was was spotted partying with her costars – Ramona,Sonja, LuAnn and others — at Le Ti, a cabaret-themed night.
A source revealed, “Le Ti has a dress-up shop with items to suit every fetish. By the end of the night, all the housewives were in tiny red pirate outfits with Jack Sparrow hats, and exposed midriffs gyrating on the dance floor.”
The source continues of Caroline, who has won three Emmys for her writing: “It’s sad to see Carole, a journalist, former ABC news producer and whose husband [Prince Anthony Radziwill] was the cousin of John F. Kennedy Jr., stooping to this level. She must really need the money.”
Back in New York, former failed housewife Cindy Barshop of the Vajazzling Barshops decided to introduce yet another product to the market that no one needed: fur merkins for your lady bits, available at her Completely Bare spa in New York. In case you get cold from all those Brazilian waxes. Just in time for Valentine’s Day, you can add a little something different to your nether regions for two Benjamins.
The ‘Foxy Bikini’ is available at $225 and the ‘Carnivale’ for $195. According to the Completely Bare website, both of these services can also be added on to your laser hair removal or waxing appointment. It seems to me you can skip the wax altogether and achieve the same effect. Am I right, ladies?
Cindy is getting some serious backlash from animal rights group PETA on the merkins which are made from real fur and calls the merkins “outright sleazy, and downright cruel.” Cindy responded by saying it is her right to stage a lame publicity stunt for her businesses, “wear fur down there” and hopes PETA will “respect that.”
Also below are photos of Cindy’s fur merkins!
