I believe that in response to Honey Boo Boo being an example of the dumbing down of our country, it was Bryan who replied that Twitter was actually even worse. Truer words, Bryan, truer words. Now Real Housewives of New Jersey'sCaroline Manzo has come under fire on the social media site.
Caroline was a recent co-host on Anderson Live and she shared her experiences of getting death threats in the Twitterverse from some pretty rabid fans. Seriously? Don't people realize that they don't actually know the stars of these shows? I highly doubt many of them would give any of us a second thought. Not that they aren't decent people, but they've got their own stuff to worry about! Anyhoo, some Caroline haters have been sending her less than stellar messages via Twitter, and she wants to remind us all that–breaking news!–it's just a television show!
Say it ain't so! I was upset enough to hear that my Silver Fox's daytime talk show has not been renewed, but now there are rumors swirling that Anderson Live may be replaced with Bethenny Frankel's show. Now, I don't have anything against Bethenny (that said, I have nothing for her either), but I do adore Anderson Cooper. Plus, having seen Bethenny's show, it's not something I would watch on a regular basis. Anderson, however, is a daily staple.
While I feel slightly placated due to the fact that Anderson's show will stick around until summer of next year, there is another show already circling his time slot. Before Bethenny fans remind me that she isn't personally responsible for Anderson's cancelation and she likely has little to do with her show taking its place, I totally realize that. It's really not so much that I'm opposed to Bethenny's show becoming syndicated, I just really enjoy Anderson's show.
Following a meltdown featured on Tuesday night's episode in which Bristol accused partner Mark Ballas of not supporting her and wishing he was partners with someone else she stormed out. The pair went on to dance the paso doble, which was an all-time high scorer for the robotic Bristol.
When many speculate Bristol's whiny fit made fans feel sorry for her, talk show host Anderson Cooper was not one of them. Although he does give her props for managing to capitulate on the drama necessary to remain integral to reality TV.

Ah my fellow readers, it appears that we aren't the only ones completely traumatized and in need of medication to deal with the trainwreck that is the Real Housewives of New Jersey reunion(s)!
Anderson Cooper stopped by Late Night with Jimmy Fallon last night and the two men revealed they're both hooked on the show – and completely stressed out by it. Anderson and Jimmy dished (and did some HILARIOUS impersonations) about the Jersey Housewives, with Anderson admitting he need to take an Ambien to get to sleep after the first reunion last Sunday!
Anderson also tells Jimmy about being bullied on Twitter over his "botched" first interview with Teresa Giudice – by her family (and as we all know, he invited her back the next day)! Watch the interview's two parts below – they're a riot.
Hey y'all! It's time for your daily Teresa Giudice round-up! So in today's exhaustive report we'll discuss how Teresa is possibly getting a spinoff, how she never yanked Melissa Gorga's arm at a children's birthday party, and how she had a breakdown following the Real Housewives of New Jersey reunion. We've also got some EXCLUSIVES from our source on Teresa's possible spinoff and her brother-in-law, who seems like quite the scandalmonger.
Oh – and Jacqueline Laurita is all on the tweeter again (I swear she's the internet's number one twit) responding to Teresa'saccusations on Anderson Live yesterday. If you recall, Teresa accused Jacqueline of sending her harassing texts and mentioned she wanted to go to the cops because it gave her chills. Well if Teresa can go to the cops, Jacqueline can too! So HA!
Ok – so this morning I made a trip down to Anderson Live where I was the guest live-blogger of the day. Which is awesome. Kellie Pickler, who is cute as a button and sweet as tea, was the co-host with Anderson. She could not be more adorable, more gracious, or more kind to the fans.
Kellie spent every break walking around the audience engaging with people, talking about life, and just being awesome. I snagged a super secret photo of her being sweet and that is below. Shhh…don't tell Anderson's producers. #instagram
Also, Kellie is itty-bitty in real-life and she proudly displayed her newly shaved head, which looks fantastic (and she does have a perfectly round head). She seems 100% genuine and down-to-earth. Unlike some of Anderson's reality star guests who I'll get to in a minute.
So, now for the news you've all been waiting for: Teresa Giudice! As you know she was the other guest. And since Real Housewives of New Jersey has dominated my life for what has now been the last six months I was super SUPER excited to meet the lady, the myth, the legend in the flesh.
Can I just say, I'm watching Anderson Live, and that interview certainly didn't go as Teresa Giudice planned. If looks could kill, Kellie Pickler would be performing CPR on poor Anderson Cooper right now. Wow. It's not Teresa's morning, and unfortunately for her, I have some more bad press for her, courtesy of sister-in-law Melissa Gorga. These women of Real Housewives of New Jersey love to give an interview, don't they? I really can't believe they don't get along seeing as how much they have in common.
In light of stripper-gate, Melissa is making sure we remember just how mean Teresa is (we get it, we get it!). This time around she's talking about the "roughing up" that happened at poor G-to-the-IA Giudice's birthday party. I mean, these poor, poor kids. Shame on these ladies!
