If you had told me back in 2010 that a post-Jersey Shore Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi would appear on additional reality shows, my money would have been on Celebrity Rehab or some other franchise that reeks of Dr. Drew. Don’t get me wrong, I loved the fist pumping, cahhb cahhlling, Sunday dinner eating, GTL-ing, DTF-ing, Shore Store employees probably more than the average fan, but I didn’t really predict any sort of staying power. Of course, we all know I’m an idiot.
Not only has most of the cast matured and done very well for themselves, Snooki went on to star in a reality spin-off with bestie Jenni “J-Woww” Farley(with another one on the way!). She got married to Jionni LaValle, and the couple has two ridiculously precious children. While she still has a penchant for all things animal print, those giant sneaker slippers (I’m hoping) are a thing of the past. That’s right, guys, our little meatball is all grown up, and she’s embarking on a new reality endeavor for the FYI network. I think this is what is known as “adulting.”
No, Kyle didn’t join a totally posh Beverly Hills biker gang that travels around doing photoshoots on the side of the road. Although stranger things have happened, Kyle was spotted hanging with her CA co-stars Laila Ali, Brooke Burke and Lisa Leslie over the weekend as she filmed the upcoming season – which is now being shot in sunny California. Kyle was seen striking a pose with a motorcycle, showing off her best biker biker gear. Of course, in true Kyle fashion, she couldn’t stay serious for too long… See the fun pics below.
Also revealed this week, Tyra Banks will be joining Arnold Schwarzenegger in the boardroom. She will be replacing Ivanka Trump as an advisor. I’ll admit I’m not crazy about this choice, but nothing would keep me away from Porsha, Kyle, and Nicole battling it out. Check out the complete Season 8 cast below.
“You may remember I did this show – this little show on a major network – called TheCelebrity Apprentice,” said Lisa. “The year that I did it, it was definitely, because of me, called Celebrity Fight Club because I hated everyone. What makes it worse for the women celebrities is that we have to spend two hours in hair and makeup every day because we look so bedraggled. One morning, like six weeks into the show, I am super tired and at 4 a.m. my makeup artist comes in and she goes, ‘Lisa, listen to this, everyone in wardrobe is saying Teresa – From the Real Housewives, who was also on the show with me. You know, the one in jail now. – is definitely pregnant because her stomach appears to be getting bigger.’ I’m like, ‘I need to investigate this because I need to be in on all the tea, honey.'”
Abby partnered with her extra-special favorites Maddie Ziegler and her little sister MacKenzie, along with Kendall and Kalani, to create the “Dance Secrets” app. The app provides fans of the show access to exclusive photos and videos, dance tutorials taught by Abby and the cast, plus “a behind-the-scenes glimpse into their everyday lives from backstage rituals at competitions, shopping trips, traveling, insider tips, trade secrets, and more!”
The network is moving forward with plans to restructure the show, which was recently renewed for a 15th season before Donald’s political aspirations severed his relationship with the network. NBC is hoping to find a replacement business mogul host (or hostess) who also has celebrity prowess.
Uh-oh… those hoping to see delusional C-list celebrities trying to revive their careers while vying for the ‘prestigious’ title of Celebrity Apprentice will have to focus all of their attentions on one delusional celeb: Donald Trump.
Sources reveal that while the conservative right-wing Donald focuses on a potential White House bid, that season 15 of Celebrity Apprentice is on hold.
Despite record ratings last season, which prompted the show to be renewed before that season finished airing, insiders for Mr. Trump say NBC is temporarily delaying production because it’s apparently a conflict of interest regarding the presidential run.
