Egomaniac and wanna-be media queen Tyra Banks recently shocked America’s Next Top Model fans by firing her long time co-judges Nigel Barker, Jay Manuel, and J. Alexander (better known as “Miss Jay”). Can you imagine an ANTM universe without Miss Jay? I don’t think I want to, and it turns out, most fans don’t, either. It was bad enough when she fired the divine Andre Leon Talley and replaced him with Kelly Cutrone, but now this?
On last night’s Survivor the women continued to reign supreme, while Troyzan tried his best to win allies with his mind games.
Tarzan finally realizes that two boys are left compared to six girls so he needs to get on the women’s good side. Kim hates being portrayed as the women’s leader, but she’s happy that Christina and Alicia didn’t fall for Troyzan’s master plan that could have easily taken down the women.
Tree-mail arrives, and it’s more cryptic than ever. Of course, Kat figures she’s safe if she can just solidify her lady vote. At the reward challenge, Jeff Probst poses a series of questions which can be answered with the name of a remaining teammate, and the major obstacle is figuring out how each of their tribe mates will vote. If a player is wrong in guessing what the other tribe mates thought, a rope attached to a voodoo doll with their likeness will be chopped. One too many chops and it’s bye-bye voodoo doll! The winner wins a fantasy picnic on an isle far, far away.

Fans have often wondered why none of their beloved Housewives have been given a shot at the mirrorball trophy (and let’s face it, they looooove shiny things!). Radar Online did some digging and came up with a source who shared that the ladies just aren’t famous enough for the show and the fact that they work for a “rival” network. (ABC vs. NBC-owned Bravo)
Well, Gretchen Christine is quite the fair-weather friend isn’t she? So, she arrives at Alexis Bellino‘s latest rent-a-mcmansion and plops her Gretchen Christine handbag on the counter and starts doing the QVC descriptor hands over the intricately designed leatherette flower, while Lex oooohhhs and aaaahhhs. This is taking the Bravo Home Shopping Network a touch too far. Quick question: Anybody out there sporting one of those jalopies? Yeah, didn’t think so!
Well, I have some unfortunate news, so I hope you’re all sitting down. The Kardashians will definitely NOT be leaving our TV’s anytime soon – or our pop culture lexicon. Despite Kim Kardashian‘s sham wedding (with accompanying very public divorce) and the tremendous negative backlash from the media and the public, American’s favorite famewhores have just inked a $40 Million three-year reality television deal with E!. So, if this doesn’t confirm that Kimye is a publicity stunt – really, I don’t know what would!
Yes, despite petitions, and threats, and absolute proof that their shows are staged crap – they will be back whether we like it or not!
Ironically the numbers for last season’s KUWTK averaged only about 3 M viewers per episode – on par (or below) with most Housewives, but apparently the Kardashians’ scandals and drama are worth their weight in gold for the network; which basically exists purely to broadcast the family’s lives. The deal does not include any new shows! So when Kim and Kanye West start pimping out their totally authentic romance, they will iron out their own deal. Which means more ka-ching!
The less famous and thereby second-rate family members, Rob Kardashian along withKylie andKendall Jenner will receive considerably less. Scott Disick and Mason also get a cut of the profit, but they have a separate deal with the network. You know Kris was trying to insure against any possible break-ups!

In your daily dose of Housewives news, we can report that there’s a new and super-wealthy lady joining the cast of RHOBH.
Radaronline.com is reporting that Yolanda Hadid, Dutch model and fourth wife of award-winning music producer David Foster, has officially joined the lavish cast of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. It seems, as well, that Yolanda has an automatic “in” as she’s known Lisa Vanderpump for years. And we all saw how well a long friendship played out for Lisa and Adrienne Maloof!
A source reveals, “What most people don’t realize is that Yolanda was married to Lisa’s very good friend, Mohamed Hadid. Mohamed has appeared several times on the show, including during the last season when he threw an over the top engagement party for Lisa’s daughter, Pandora. Yolanda is going to make an excellent addition to the cast and she can definitely hold her ground if the claws come out; she is no shrinking violet.” I wonder if there will be any scenes with Yolanda, Mohamed, and Mo’s robot teen girlfriend. I’d certainly tune in for that!
The new season, which presumably premieres this fall, will be missing original cast member Camille Grammer, who, sources say, refused to be filmed with her boyfriend for a story line. Relegated to special appearances, producers need to vamp up the cast in light of Camille’s absence.
On last night’s 16 and Pregnant we meet Jordan Howard, a teen from Millersville, Pennsylvania who is in a biracial relationship with Tyler. She discusses her situation with her mother Kelly who isn’t keen on her daughter’s boyfriend. She won’t even let him in her home. Kelly is alright with Jordan staying at Tyler’s house now, but that will change after the baby. The baby WILL stay at Jordan’s house and Tyler will NOT be included. Thankfully, his parents are more supportive. Jordan wants to stay with his parents after the couple’s son is born, but they all know they will face strong opposition from her mother.
Tyler has spent a lot of his savings on baby supplies and furniture. Jordan wants to contribute, so the pair go shopping for baby clothes. It’s worth noting that Tyler is wearing a shirt that says “I’m the guy your parents warned you about.” Tyler and Jordan reveal that her mother is so wary of Tyler because he’s white. She admits she even had some strange reactions from her friends when they first got together. Jordan discusses with her friends her fear about telling her mom about her plans to move in with Tyler’s family.
