The National Geographic Channel (thank goodness they stopped trying to make “Nat Geo” stick) is introducing a new series that promises to be equal parts The Godfather, Jersey Shore, and The Sopranos. The show, American Gypsies, sounds like it will be entirely amazing, given that it’s produced by none other than everyone favorite martial arts underdog, Daniel-sanRalph Macchio. When does it start??
Ralph tells the Huffington Post, “This is a fascinating subculture that exists right here in New York. I was astounded by some of the customs and what I would call unorthodox choices and traditions, but [they were] kind of relatable in a way with me being from a Greek-Italian-American family. They have strong beliefs and family comes first — this story needed to be told.”
Bethenny Frankel’stalk show ‘test run’ has come to end…for now. In a new video she bids farewell to her audience, but is hopeful that the show WILL return full time. The show garnered decent ratings, especially considering it was only airing in a few select markets, and the audience seemed to connect with her no-filter style of talk. See below the jump for her tearful “goodbye for now” speech.
If Bethenny’s show does get the green light, she and Jason Hoppy will be making the move to L.A., she tells the new print issue of People. She also opened up about the roller coaster ride her marriage has been on for the last year or so.

I hope the following news doesn’t cause Mob Wives’Renee Graziano another epic meltdown. It seems that her ex-husband Junior Pagan has gotten really good at turning on his mobster friends. It shouldn’t be too hard to do, considering he’s had practice ratting out his father-in-law!
The NY Daily News reports that Junior has now snitched on two men, Richard Riccardi and Luigi Grasso, who were his accomplices during a robber which ended in a fatal shooting. Junior testified that Riccardi supplied him with guns and Grasso accompanied him to rob a man who was an associate of a rival family. When the man resisted, Junior shot him in the leg, causing the man to bleed to death. The Junior and his cohorts made off with over $10,000.
Snooki is spinning her Jersey Shore fame into a nice little nest egg for her growing family. So far we’ve seen Snooki’s Weight Loss Cookies, Snooki’s Slippers, a boxing team, tanning lotion, sunglasses, perfume, books, and now – Snooki’s Wild Cherry Soda!
Here she is attending the product launch at The Rocket Fizz Soda Pop & Candy Shop in Los Angeles yesterday.
I don’t think Jersey Shore will be the last we hear and see of Snooki. For someone who plays the resident ditz, this girl is making some smart business moves.

Ok blk…. we’ve been hearing about your fulvic acid and alkaline goodness for two seasons on Real Housewives of New Jersey. I always thought alkaline was the thing that made batteries go, and to my knowledge batteries are toxic. Well, I decided to take one for the team and test out this blk. Below is my review haiku.
So in 5-7-5 pentameter without further ado, I present: blk., A Review Haiku:
Needless to say, Kalon’s journey on the Bachelorette did not end well. Kalon’s unapologetic ways and big personality, however, make him a perfect fit for Bachelor Pad. Something went right at the Pad, because Kalon agrees! “I’m so glad I did Bachelor Pad. It was like night and day from Bachelorette. I had the most amazing time doing it, and I’m ready for fans to see me in a new light,” Kalon told Celebuzz.
When asked about his experience on Bachelorette, Kalon sings a much different tune. Kalon is not happy about the “bad boy” edit he received.
