Why you ask? Nicole’s fiance Michael Strahan is being listed on a very short list to join Kelly Ripa as her new co-host on Live With Kelly and ???
TMZ reports that the retired NFL star is Kelly’s permanent co-host and that ABC insiders from NYC are say Michael is definitely in and will be announced shortly. Dang – Nicole has some serious A-List luck!
There’s no such thing as too many photo posts, in my ever so humble opinion! I love checking out what the stars are wearing, where they’re going, etc. Here we have another gallery from VH1’s 2012 Do Something Awards, held last night at Barker Hangar in Los Angeles.
Our favorite reality TV stars can’t get enough of the spotlight during their regularly scheduled time slots, so they take to Twitter to give us an hourly play by play of their lives. And we love them for it! Here’s a roundup of some of our favorite photos from the Twitterverse this week! Enjoy!

It’s the day after the public argument between Mayte GarciaandJessica Canseco. Mayte called Jessica an elephant, or something, Jessica felt attacked, Jessica’s snide responses got to Mayte, and Mayte threw a wine glass out of anger. Nicole Murphy was left sitting alone, probably debating whether or not she’s paid enough to deal with this nonsense.
Andrea Kelly and Sheree Fletcher are now crying that they need some “serious retail therapy” after that “fiasco.” Funny, since those two are the ones responsible for the public showdown. Mayte had been avoiding Jessica since Palm Springs, because she was having issues dealing with Jessica’s flippant attitude surrounding her abortion, and then Andrea and Sheree encouraged Mayte to talk to Jessica. Mayte and Jessica needed to talk, eventually, but in private. Not in a loud restaurant fully stocked with wine glasses. Anyway, Andrea and Sheree need some time, now, to shop and gossip.
The Hollywood Exes‘ getaway to Palm Springs wasn’t the nice relaxing time they all hoped for. The Exes dealt with some controversial subjects, including animal rights, religion, and abortion. Seriously, could the topics get any more intense? Whether shopping or participating in drunken acrobats, there were certainly some good times shared as well. However, the bad times dominated the trip and many feelings were hurt. This week, apologies are made with mixed results.
Andrea Kelly meets her new boyfriend Percy for lunch. Percy’s peeking at Andrea’s cheeks, and they’re all smiles. Andrea is happy with Percy. She says he gets her and they have fun. Percy asks about Palm Springs. Andrea’s like, “Oh, you should be asking what didn’t happen in Palm Springs!” Percy is surprised to hear about Jessica Canseco and Sheree Fletcher‘s fight. He’s says, “They don’t even seem like they have anything in common to argue about.”
Last week I spoke with Sheree Fletcher from Hollywood Exes. Hot on the heels of a drama-filled episode where Sheree experienced some conflict with Jessica Canseco, we talked about how the cast maintains true friendships and what her experiences with both reality TV and being thrust into the public eye have been. I also spoke to Sheree about merging her strong religious beliefs with reality television.
Sheree was so gracious and down-to-earth. She was open-minded, friendly, and we had an earnest conversation about her experiences with the show, the other women, and building her brand Whoop Ash.
An excerpt from our conversation is below:
Sheree shares that her motivation for joining the show was an appreciation of the concept. “I liked what the producers were trying to do. The focus was on the women; I wouldn’t have been a part of a show that focused on my ex.”
From the get-go the premise was to focus on a group of women who were once married to “high profile” men and had common experiences. “They wanted to put together a sorority of sorts where women could come together and share their experiences and empower and support one another,” Sheree explains.

The Hollywood Exes are off to Palm Springs. Sheree Fletcher takes Jessica Canseco and Nicole Murphy swimsuit shopping. She surprises them with her great idea to get away to Palm Springs. She’s hoping for bonding time and relaxation. Nicole picks out a purple bikini for Mayte Garcia. Sheree and Jessica remind her purple is forbidden. Mayte is “not allowed” to wear purple. Sheree calls Mayte on the phone to tell her about the trip and the bikini. Nicole says about the purple, “Girl, do not run from it! The more you fight it, the worse it gets. Embrace the purple rain around you.” It does seem a bit silly.
The house Sheree rented used to belong to Bing Crosby. It’s also rumored to be where JFK and Marilyn Monroe got together. Andrea Kelly says, “Sheree did very well finding this house. It’s absolutely beautiful. She should of looked on the map though a little bit longer because this house is in the middle of no-damn-where!” After a tour of the house, Jessica suggests cocktails. Sheree prays first. Jessica says, “It’s hot as balls out here. I just want to have a drink. And Sheree wants to make a prayer session out of this.” Prayer is done, drinks are poured, and the women are heading out to the pool. Unfortunately, on their way outside, they discover a cockroach in the house. Sheree takes off. Jessica picks it up. Nicole tells her to flush it. Instead, Jessica carries it outside. Nicole is like, why did you do that?!? Jessica says she cannot kill a living thing. This sets the tone for the entire weekend.
