Someone at Time Magazine, who has way too much time on his or her hands, decided to run the tweets written by the 500 most followed celebrities through a reading comprehension test to determine the 50 Smartest Celebrities on Twitter. The test adds up the number of three-syllable words used in a tweet to calculate the education level required to understand it.
Time reported, the average Twitter user tweets at a 4th grade reading level.
Leonardo DiCaprio took the #1 spot with a 7.5 grade reading level. He tweets a lot about ocean conservation, so this is not surprising. Pattie Mallette, the woman who gave us Justin Bieber, ranked #2. My guess is that the three-syllable word “beliebers” helped her win this spot. Jenni “JWoww” Farley was one of the highest ranking reality TV stars!
With the summer in full swing and the holiday at the beginning of the month, it’s been slow going where reality TV star photos are concerned! But we have an all new photo roundup for you today!
Above – Farrah Abraham dressed up in some swimsuit-lingerie hybrid to celebrate the launch of her sex toy line this weekend. We spared you the uber-classy photos of her licking the sex toys on the red carpet. We kid you not.
Our favorite reality TV stars cannot get enough of the spotlight during their regularly scheduled time slots, so they take to social media to share even more of their daily lives with us. And we love them for it! Here’s a roundup of some of our favorite photos from this week! Enjoy!
Apparently VH1 wants to revitalize NBC’s “Must See TV” Thursday. They are really pushing their “hot new summer line-up” for Thursdays, which includes Dating Naked, #CandidlyNicole, andLeAnn & Eddie and kicks off July 17.
Dating Naked? Awesome. Nicole Richie? No complaints here.LeAnn Rimes and Eddie Cibrian? Um, err, at least it’s not Brandi! Obviously this line-up will go down in history books as the new The Cosby Show, Cheers, and L.A. Law or Friends, Will & Grace, and ER can’t miss Thursday night!
Mark your calendars, my friends, because VH1 is where it’s at this summer. To be clear: No – I did not type any of that with a straight face. But I am looking forward to #CandidlyNicole despite the hashtag. Also, T.I. & Tiny: The Family Hustle returns and Atlanta Exes premieres later this summer.
Forget rapper T.I., it's his wife Tiny that has captured the hearts of viewers everywhere…okay, it's the whole flipping family, T.I. included. Who doesn't adore them? The crew has been a staple on VH1 with season four ofT.I. & Tiny: The Family Hustle recently premiering .
Now, it appears that Tiny is going to be getting another show in addition to the Hustle. In it, she and her hairdresser (and closest pal) will be showcasing their shenanigans. Think vintage reality shows. Think former besties living on a farm. Think ratings gold.
Nicole Richie is coming back to reality TV. Yesterday, VH1 announced that they were producing a new show called #CandidlyNicole, based on the Fashion icon, Creative Director of House of Harlow 1960, actress, author, entrepreneur and philanthropist's popular AOL series and Twitter feed.
Besides being the daughter of pop music Legend Lionel Richie, Nicole became famous when she starred on the reality hit The Simple Life with Paris Hilton from 2003-2007. Since becoming a star in her own right, Nicole has cleaned up a drug problem with a stint in rehab, married Good Charlotte musician Joel Madden, had two children and founded The Richie Madden Children’s Foundation. She currently acts as the Creative Director for House of Harlow 1960, offering ready-to-wear, jewelry, eyewear, footwear and handbags.She also recently starred as one of the three mentors — along with Jessica Simpson — on NBC’s Fashion Star and is also a best-selling author of the novel The Truth About Diamonds.
