Well, it appears the rumors were true! Kate Gosselin just can't go away…it's as if reality television is her own form of crack. This go-round, the former Jon and Kate Plus Eight star will be switching lives with Kendra Wlikinson for Celebrity Wife Swap. I guess ABC is taking a cue from Bravo's housewives' franchise and not requiring its "stars" to be actual wives…
The women will spend a week in the other's household, trying to maintain order with the family rules before implementing a system of her own. I can only imagine how drill sergeant Kate will fare when she returns home after laid back Kendra has been in charge!
Well, dear readers, thankfully the Mayan hype was just that…hype. We're now in the last week of 2012 (has it flown by as quickly for you as it did me?), and we need to focus on 2013. It's time for gorging on holiday leftovers and contemplating the last 365 days–or 265 days if you're RHOA'sPorsha Stewart. When it comes to making New Year's resolutions, I am absolutely horrible. Check that. I'm great at making them, but I'm awful at keeping them.
For 2013, I plan to eat healthier (the BoJangles drive-thru is just so delicious and convenient), write daily (for myself), cook more, and like wine less (bwahahahaha! Like that will ever happen!). I also pledge to spend more time with family and friends–it's my one easy given. I hate total failure. Finally, I resolve to train for the half-marathon I've been wanting to do, and this time around wogging (walk/jogging) three miles every other week just won't cut it. Thankfully, we've got some great tips from reality stars as to how to make our healthy resolutions an actuality. Fingers crossed.
First up? Real Housewives of New Jersey's controversial scene stealer is sharing a list of her ten healthiest tips…courtesy of her trainer. Celeb Buzz is reporting on how Teresa Giudice plans to maintain her svelte figure in the new year. The exercise-loving reality star reveals, “It is so rewarding how I feel at the end of the workout, I can’t wait to come back for more. One of the lessons I learned is that this is a lifestyle change. I’m not just here for a couple of months. I’m in it for the long haul.”
Let's face it. No matter how hard the universe tries to dissuade her, Kate Gosselin's quest for a new reality TV show is never going to end.
Accused of child abuse? Kate's not spooked. Publicly humiliated by a coupon blog? No sweat off Kate's back. Hurricane Sandy unfairly coming between Kate and her hair salon? Well, that one almost brought her down. Obviously, Kate has priorities. Through it all, Kate keeps trying… and trying… and trying.
Reportedly, Kate and Kendra Wilkinson have participated in new reality show titled Mom Swap. According to Robert Hoffman, the author of (not for sale) Kate Gosselin: How She Fooled the World, Kate's latest endeavor left her kids traumatized, which doesn't sound like Kate is completely believable.
Reality TV starKendra Wilkinson got in the Halloween spirit this week, Tweeting her excitement over her Halloween "costume".
Kendra showed off some pics on Twitter, sharing the progression of her airbrushed/painted on costume coming together. "I'm backkkkkk bitches! Halloween babyyyyyy. Who can guess what I'm doing….or what I'm being??"
Can we really call it a costume if there are no clothes involved? Where does one wear such a "costume"? Your kids' school Halloween party? Maybe she partied at the Playboy Mansion. Perhaps babysitting for Kelsey Grammer?
Deadline Hollywood reports that despite slightly lower numbers this season, The X Factor has been picked up for season 3. Nobody is happier about the news than Simon Cowell. “I couldn’t be happier about The X Factor already being renewed for another season. I am so proud of the show and the team who have made it this season.” The X Factor has been averaging 10.6 million viewers. It seems the revamp of the show by hiring Britney Spears and Demi Lovato is paying off.
Another show, whose ratings seem to be a bit of a secret, Kendra on Top, will be returning to the WE network for another season of sass and stilettoes. WE tv ordered 12 episodes of the 30 minute show starring former Playboy model Kendra Wilkinson and her family, plus 2 hour-long specials.
TELL US – HAVE YOU BEEN WATCHING THE X FACTOR AND/OR KENDRA ON TOP? ARE YOU GLAD TO SEE THEM COMING BACK FOR ANOTHER SEASON?
