When American Idolfirst started, people were enamored by the talent of the first winner Kelly Clarkson, but what really put the show on the map were the bad auditions and harsh criticisms. Original cast member Simon Cowell became a household name as a judge thanks to his comments about the “bad” performances.
Even though American Idoljust had its series finale in 2016, there is a revival on the way which no one asked for. The show is on a different network and instead of judges that were on the previous seasons, Katy Perry, Lionel Richie, and Luke Bryan are up for the task. Ryan Seacrest is back to host and the format of the show seems relatively the same, but this time there will be no bad auditions.
Happy Friday! Let’s take a look at what the reality TV stars have been up this week. On top we have Kyle Richards attending Jhpiego’s ‘Laughter Is The Best Medicine’ Gala at the Beverly Wilshire Four Seasons Hotel.
Also out attending events, Kyle’s (now former) RHOBH co-star, Eden Sassoon. Eden hit the red carpet at the 8th annual Thirst Gala at The Beverly Hilton Hotel.
NYLON magazine held its annual Young Hollywood party in L.A., with Dance Moms star Chloe Lukasiak as well as Lisa Rinna‘s daughters, Amelia and Delilah.
Below in the reality TV star photo gallery roundup, we also have Kandi Burruss and Todd Tucker, Ryan Serhant, Val Chmerkovskiy and more!
A new week means a new gallery of the reality TV stars showing off, throwing shade, or sharing snapshots on Twitter and Instagram. Then there’s Bethenny Frankel, in a category all of her own, Skinnygirl! Everything! Forever!, showing off her bikini body while promoting her watermelon line.
Celebrate Father’s Day by checking out this list of the hottest reality TV dads. Some of these dads are the star of the show and others are “forced” to be on reality television because of their wives (and others were on short lived reality shows). It doesn’t really matter how they got on reality TV, but they have and we are all enjoying their presence.
A lot of these dads are so scandalous that you probably question why I would even put them on this list, but I have questionable taste in men, so whatever. Then there are those obvious choices on this list that are gorgeous men with solid reputations. It’s a mixed bag to say the least, but please don’t judge me. Just have a good sense of humor and keep it going.
Our reality star sightings gallery today includes Tamar Braxton and husband Vince attended the premiere of Finding Dory with their son Logan. Tori Spelling’s family was also seen at the movie premiere, as well as Holly Madison and her expanding family.
American Idol has come to an end… for now… and I, for one, am sad. Last night, Trent Harmon was named the Season 15 winner, and the “bookend” toKelly Clarkson. Today, both Trent and La’Porsha Renae signed major record deals, however. Both well deserved.
As an American Idol super fan (and I’m not ashamed to admit it), I loved every minute of the finale, though I did feel a little bad for this season’s finalists, who were reduced to singing backup and rolling a gift for Ryan Seacrest onto the stage. Instead of the usual finalist & artist pairings, we were treated to non-stop performances by past American Idol contestants, including Chris Daughtry,Jordin Sparks, Carrie Underwood, Jennifer Hudson, and more. Sadly, a very pregnant Kelly wasn’t able to attend, but she did pre-tape a medley of her greatest hits, ending with an acappella “A Moment Like This.”
Simon Cowell will be taking over Howard Stern’s position as a judge on America’s Got Talent!
Simon, an executive producer for the show, who also judges Britain’s Got Talent (the UK version of AGT), shared that he and NBC had been “talking about” him joining the judges panel for years, but it never panned out. Now the timing seems right! “This year … everything worked so it was perfect.”
Howard is said to be leaving to focus on his radio show and other possible television opportunities.
