While she may have been ousted from Real Housewives of Atlanta, Sheree Whitfield remains as delightfully delusional as ever, telling S2S Magazine that any new cast members added for the show’s fifth season will be mere additions, not replacements. See, there is only one Sheree!
“No one can replace me. I can’t be replaced.” Well, that’s true. Who else would be able to produce something like She By She Broke, our Mary’s favorite fashion line? To those who say she cried and asked for her job back, Sheree says “as if”. You see my character. I’m not even that girl.”
It seemed like everyone on the East Coast this weekend dedicated their Memorial Day to grilling meats and seeing Beyonce in Atlantic City. Kim Kardashian, never one to shy from a bikini photo op, made it in, to make a few dollars at a random hotel pool, and also actually saw the concert. She used her Kanye West connection and got backstage and hung out with the queen.
Some random PR person from the Kardashian camp, aka a random ‘source’ tells US Weekly that the girls get along just fine: “Kim thought it was such a great show. “There’s always some random rumors there is tension between them and there totally isn’t! Kim had so much fun.”
Oh snap! The Dance Moms: Miami finale is bringing some dramz in the form of a new dancer…the adorable Mia and her Charo-esque mother. Sweet!
As always, the episode started with the list, and Lucas takes the top spot for his many successes last week. Hannah scores second on the list for scoring second overall, and Angel tells her that she’s now acting like a great dancer and will be treated as such. Sammy is third for increasing her artistic game, with Kimmy fourth for sloppy transitions. Jessi is at the bottom (watch out for Susan!) for messing up in her duet with Kimmy.
Sammy and Hannah both get solos, and Lucas and Kimmy will be performing a duet. Jessi will only be dancing in the group number. Jessi is upset that she isn’t getting a solo, but she’s determined to keep it together to prove to Angel and Victor that she’s a team player. The theme for this week is “celebrity” since they swept last weekend’s competition. Victor announces he has a surprise, and enter Mia. She is one of the studio’s top dancers, who at ten, according to Victor, has the skill and technique of an eighteen-year-old. The dancers are thrilled. They love Mia…Lucas is even rocking a Mia crush. She is a precious little girl.
With Love & Hip Hop original sauce having all sorts of casting drama, Vh1 is hoping to distract us with a new flavor of crazy: Love & Hip Hop Atlanta! Atlanta is considered the new frontier in entertainment and the rappers will be getting their hustle on southern style! The competition will be fierce professionally and personally as the boundaries cross in a dramatic way.
This season the drama will center around Stevie J, “a three-time Grammy Award-Winning producer who has worked with artists such as Diddy, Jay-Z and Mariah Carey,” according to Vh1.
“Stevie’s longtime girlfriend Mimi Faust, and a fiery up-and-coming Latina rapper named Joseline. here’s no shortage of drama with this strong-willed trio. Also featured are Lil Scrappy, best known for his 2006 smash hit, “Money in the Bank,” his girlfriend Erica Dixon, and his mother, a former hustler known as ‘Momma Dee.’”
“The hometown hero, Atlanta rapper Rasheeda, is still searching for that big hit after years in the hip hop game, but she’s constantly at odds with her manager Kirk Frost — who also happens to be her husband. Rounding out the cast are the talented songbird K Michelle, and Trinidadian R&B singer Karlie Redd.”
Love & Hip Hop Atlanta premieres June 18th at 8pmEST on VH1.
It’s your daily dose of Bachelorette with a heaping side of Harrison…add some Bachelor Pad for dessert sprinkled with just the right amount of hook ups, implants, and shame. Let’s dig in, shall we?
The always lovely and good-natured Chris Harrison, host of all three train wrecks love quests, opened up to The Huffington Post about his favorite couples through the years. He reveals, “Trista and Ryan [Sutter] were just lightning in a bottle. I don’t know if we’ll ever capture anything like that again. That one will always stand out.” The couple was the first of the franchise to actually wed (on television, of course), and now they have two children together.
Another of Chris’ favorite love birds were our current Bachelorette Emily Maynard and two-time BachelorBrad Womack. He tells the site, “I felt like the two of them were meant to be and it was gonna work. When they broke up, I was really sad.” Well, you certainly know if you’re tuning into this season that Em has stolen Chris Harrison’s heart along with those of her suitors.
“Everybody’s had this appetite for her,” Chris continues. “She’s so contagious. You just want to care for her, you want to root for her, you want her to do well, and that really makes for a perfect Bachelorette. When her name came up [to be the next Bachelorette], we started bantering about and it was a unanimous home run. It’s very rare that it’s unanimous.”
Last night was the season finale of 16 & Pregnant. We are introduced to Kristina Robinson who lives in Dewberry, Texas with her mother, grandmother, brother, and sister. She is very close to her Aunt Dotty, and spends lots of time at her house with her husband Daniel (that would be Uncle Daniel, correct?) and their three kids (so her cousins…funny how they don’t phrase it like that). It was at Dotty and Daniel’s that she met her boyfriend Todd…who is the younger brother of Daniel…aka her uncle.
The pair started dating a year ago, and things moved very quickly. Around prom time of junior year, Todd proposed, and Kristina accepted. That summer the pair was at the beach vacationing with Kristina’s family. While swimming in the ocean, the couple got caught in a riptide. Kristina was rescued by a lifeguard, but Todd drowned. This is tragic! Apparently, Kristina was about three months pregnant with his baby when he passed away. She has since moved in full time with Dotty and Daniel as she feels they can better to relate to what she’s experiencing with the loss of Todd.
Daniel urges Kristina to include her mother in the pregnancy because she’s feeling left out, but Kristina has a hard time being around her mother who is constantly distraught over the accident. Kristina is the only one in the family who doesn’t need a constant stream of subtitles. Her mother really wants her to move home, but she wants to stay with her aunt and uncle.
We got wind of some information on gossip sleuth Lisa Lovelace’s Facebook page that insinuates that Brooks may be a very different person than he claims to be. Allegedly, of course. A woman named Nicolette, who claims to be the mother of Brooks’ youngest son, took to posting about her ex-boyfriend and she had some not so nice things to say about his ways!
Last night was the season finale ofBethenny Ever After. And it really felt like both the end of an era and the beginning of a new one. Julie Plake left, Jason Hoppy and Bethenny Frankel finally moved into their new apartment after a season-long HGTV show of decorating it, and Bethenny announced that the talk show is really happening.
I have to say, I’ve long had a love-hate relationship with Bethenny. I’ve loved her on Real Housewives of New York. I’ve adored her on Bethenny Getting Married?. And I’ve resented her and been in awe of her for complaining about having it all while actually accomplishing it all on BEA.
With that being said, I think it’s time for the Bethenny of reality TV to come to an end. She’s seems done. Frankly, the show seems done. And I think most of the viewers are ready to see the silly, fun Bethenny they fell in love with again. Which hopefully will happen on her talk show.
I can’t say enough about how much Bethenny is willing to let it all hang out – literally and metaphorically – and give us the very best and very worst of herself, but it seems she’s maybe given too much and it’s time to move on. I mean, case in point – do we even care about the revolving door of employees that have now come to dominate the show as Bethenny’s so-called friends and confidantes? Nope. Sorry, Jacs!
