Tyra Banks shocked fans of her reality cult classic America’s Next Top Model when she fired Nigel Barker, J. Alexander and Jay Manuel, three cast members who had been on the show for approximately one million years.
US Magazine reported this week that two replacements for the men have been announced, Katy Perry’s stylist Johnny Wujek and model Rob Evans will join publicist Kelly Cutrone at judge’s table.I’m a bit worried that Katy’s stylist is being added. I guess we’ll have to expect some really weird challenges next cycle. Who can shoot ice cream out of the cone bra the best a la Katy’s California Girls video is one idea.
Tyra also announced that the show would add a voting element, like almost every other reality show. “Cycle 19′s judging panel will include your votes, comments and video messages. You will have a say in which models stay… and who goes home.”
On last night’s Don’t Be Tardy for the Wedding, we are (yea!) one week closer to Kim Zolciak’s wedding extravaganza! There is vow writing, there is portable toilet shopping, and there is a potentially faux peace treaty forged between Kim and her wedding-ruining mother.
Can I just say that K.J. is a Kroy Biermann mini-me? I love the premise of Kim talking to him at the start of each show. That skull and crossbones knit cap is just too much!
Kim is wearing a belly baring pleather shirt and meeting up with her Uncle John who apparently lives in my neck of the woods. She starts in on her mother, and John is quick to remind her that she’s about to talk crap about his sister. Kim shares that her mom is threatening to be sick on her wedding day, and John reminds her that she is very particular. Kim’s mom Karen informed John of her threats, and John reveals that his sister is no longer talking to him after he put in his two cents. Wait, did Kim just spit out some gum at the table? John believes that Kim and Karen are too similar, hence the tension. The pair gets teary remembering John’s battle with cancer and how he promised not to leave her until she was married. Kim asks him to accompany her dad in walking her down the aisle. Wow, Kim has a heart on this show!
Oh Kartrashians…you say one thing and then do another. Perhaps that is why you are ridiculously hated rich, while I just have the privilege of writing about you. Me? I say one thing, and then, well, do it. Even it’s just taking out the trash. “I’m taking out the trash.” And then I take out the trash. But that’s just me, and my example regarding trash is in no way a comparison to your empire. Or is it?
Just when you were regaining the tiniest smidgen of respect for Khloe Kardashian for shelving Khloe and Lamar in order to work on her marriage, you may want to rethink your stance. HollywoodLife.com reminds us that Khloe and her famewhoring sisters stopped by Jay Leno this week, where Khloe dropped a bomb I was totally not expecting.
She told Jay, “I understand people have to sell magazines, but I didn’t pull the plug on any show, it’s not ending. I just said I wanted the summer for ourselves and to be with family and spend time his kids. Tryouts are in the first week of July. They only take 12, but to be in the top 12 is like a Grammy nomination. I didn’t pull the plug, let’s just call it a hiatus.” So does this mean there is a future for Khloe and Lamar? Granted, it’s the only Kardashow I actually don’t hate myself for watching, but I was so proud to see her bucking Kris Jenner the system that I hate to see her back pedal. But I guess it’s in the genes, so I can’t fault her much.
William Levy may be hot and he certainly can dance – but he’s also plagued by scandal! The Dancing With The Stars contestant has been a hot-bed of controversy this season – first a sex tape and now reports that his Miami home is in foreclosure!
Well, it wouldn’t be a reality show without some financial issues. In Touch Weeklydiscovered that the Miami home William owns with his girlfriend Elizabeth Gutierrez is in the midst of foreclosure proceedings and possibly headed to the auction block as soon as June 11!
According to court papers, William owes $20,000 on the home – which surely the rich actor can afford, right?
Of course, this isn’t William’s first legal indiscretion. His driver’s license has been suspended for the second time in a year because he has a whole host of unpaid tickets. Perhaps being hot is all William has going for him!
It was the hometown visits for American Idol this week, which on the results show warrants a Simon and Garfunkel montage (loves!) as Joshua Ledet, Phil Phillips, and Jessica Sanchez head back to where their hearts are for a giant, stadium sized homecoming party. Ryan Seacrest reminds America about the deets of the next week’s final faceoff with his hands casually resting on the backs of Steven Tyler and Jennifer Lopez. Steven is doing his best Gollum/gargoyle statue impression while JLo looks awkward…probably because she’s not sure she’s going to continue with this gig. Randy Jackson is confident in his judging abilites, sporting a leather blazer.
After Ryan announces the performers for the evening will be the King’s daughter Lisa Marie Presley and everyone’s favorite Idol alum and eyeliner abusing Adam Lambert, the final three perform a Beatles song. Yawn. Bring on the sofa! As always, an idol fueled Ford commercial is highlighted, with a noticeably absent P Philly. Jessica explains she’s happy to make it this far, and regardless of her fate, she’s excited to find out the results. Phillip and Joshua echo her sentiments…and why shouldn’t they? History tells us that the runners-up usually do better than the winner anyway. Reuben Studdard knows what I’m talking about. J Hud, anyone?
You’re totally shocked to hear this, I know, but it looks like there will be drama on Tanisha Gets Married, the spin off following Bad Girls Club alum Tanisha Thomasplan her wedding to fiance Clive.
In the following video posted by Radar Online, Tanisha is already fighting with her brides maids Natalie Nunn and Flo Kaja. And it’s only episode 2! Will there be a Bad Girls Club version of hunger games on the season finale? It seems kinda early.
Tanisha doesn’t like the arguing since planning a wedding is hard, y’all! “My life is stressful as it is. I’m planning a wedding. You throw Natalie and Flo into the mix and I’m like, this is stressful!”
I’m not sure if I am scared or excited about the return of VH1′s Love & Hip Hop. It’s no secret that many of the antics of the ladies on the show left me cringing with every recap, but there is going to be quite a shift in casting. I don’t know if that’s a good thing or a bad thing!
Anyone who watched last season knew of the discord between Chrissy Lampkin and producer Mona-Scott Young. Viewers wondered if a show without Chrissy, her now fiance Jim Jones, and everyone’s favorite, Jim’s mom (!!!), would even be a show at all. Who wants to watch a program void of a mumbling Jim and a “pyhsicotic bitch”? Not this gal. I love me some Mama Jones!
