Much like the other reality competitions before it, TheX Factor needs a revamp. Let's face it, unless it's The Voice, no one is really watching on the daily…or are you? I've never been one for the these shows (although I did get addicted to American Idol back in the day), but I do love to watch a moody Simon Cowell. Plus, who doesn't love to see what color hair Demi Lovato is sporting on any given night?
USA Today is reporting that Simon has grand plans for the upcoming season of the X Factor. He's talking shake-ups, y'all! Simon himself even wants a new role in the production.
Shahs of Sunset's Reza Farahan taped a segment for Bethenny Frankel's talk show yesterday – and he let her shave off his beloved mustache! In return, Bethenny donated $10,000 to Reza's charity of choice, Project Angel Food.
"I was very nervous," Reza said to Us Weekly. "Bethenny is a very sweet, nice white lady who shaves her white hairs and is not used to angry Persian hairs. I don't think she realized how strong my hair is and I was worried she would take my upper lip off!"
Check out the video and the after photos below – but don't get too attached toReza's clean shaven look. The mustache is definitely coming back. "I am just more comfortable with it," shared Reza. "I feel lonely, like my wingman is gone."
Last night's episode of Shahs of Sunset was fairly uneventful. For me, it felt like a filler episode to set up the showdown betweenReza Farahan and Mike Shouhed on the next episode. Oh but Mercedes "MJ" Javid did do some of that pesky thing us regular folks call a job! I guess that's worth noting.
To kick things off, Reza and Adam Neely are off to the mall. Reza pokes fun at Sears and Nieman Marcus in the same mall – this coming from the man who has Louis Vuitton shoes and IKEA furnishings in the same apartment. As they walk through the mall, Reza and Adam talk about the menu for their upcoming housewarming party, and they just happen to come across a Beluga caviar vending machine – a small can of caviar costs $3500, cash only. First, gross. Second, no problem for Reza, who whips out a wad of $100s. Adam wants to know who carries around that kind of cash, Reza says immigrants! Reza gives Adam props for going with the flow, adding, "With a little more training, he could be the quintessential perfect Persian wife."
Golnesa "GG" Gharachedaghi and Asa Soltan Rahmati take a Tai Chi class in the park. Asa thinks it'll be good for GG, who lacks impulse control. At the same time, GG tells us, "MJ makes me want to cut her t*ts off and bitch slap her with them." Tai Chi just makes GG horny. Better luck next time, Asa.
Lilly,Joanna and Carmen headed out to RivaBella restaurant together. Lilly, who normally doesn't partake in anything fun besides work, shared on Twitter why she decided to enjoy a night out. And made sure we knew the details of her outfit…
"I usually go to bed after my long days of work, but I'm starting my New Years resolution now, to be more fun . Quick change and off to girls night with @jackketso @carmenelectra @joannakrupa Rocking a @lovenookie dress with #hermes Birkin bag and #brianatwood pumps custom bling'd by @crisrockzit #ghalichiglam."
On this week's episode of Real Housewives of AtlantaCynthia gave us a glimpse into some of the extreme trust issues their relationship has and with everything from family being against the marriage to serious money woes, it's no surprise the couple almost didn't last!
Cynthia admits that living with fibroids, which she had removed this season, were so intense it almost destroyed her relationship and that if she hadn't had surgery Peter would have been out the door. Apparently "In sickness and in health" is like a vanity vow or something…
Yesterday Joe was spotted in court alone so attorneys could determine whether or not his identity fraud trial should take place before or after his federal trial for fraud. Decisions, decisions! Noticeably absent (as she always is) was Teresa!
“They are having problems. It is almost impossible for a marriage to survive all this stress,” a friend confides to Naughty But Nice Rob. “We are praying for them, but it does not look good."
Lisa Vanderpump was accused of being the "vacation police" for confiscating a bottle of wine Brandi was guzzling from. But she also got yelled at by Kim Richards for being dismissive of her. I agree Lisa is kind of flippant where Kim is concerned. In her Bravo blog Lisa recounts the events and explains her behaviors.
Lisa defended Kyle Richards against Brandi's drunken comments because she knew Kyle was fragile in that moment. "Kyle was not in the frame of mind to defend herself, and I knew I had to say something with out antagonizing her."
"Kyle was emotional that weekend, once again investing in another tabloid story that had reared its ugly head. This one I believed was even more ridiculous. However Kyle always gives them more credence than they deserve, almost engulfing herself in the negative emotion of it all. Ignore it and this too shall pass!"
