Confession: I can sit through 1oo’s of hours of “unscripted television,” but I have never once made it through an awards show. Except maybe the MTV VMAs one year while I was in college. And even then, I only made it through because I was too hung over to move from the couch where my roommates were watching.
However, I do find the People’s Choice Awards fascinating. Because the awards are voted on by the viewers, it makes for some… interesting results. For example, last year’s nominees for “Drama Movie of the Year” included Red Sparrow and A Quiet Place – both legitimate movies with plots and acting and character development. Wanna know what movie won? “Fifty Shades Freed.” That’s right, we the viewers chose soft porn over a movie starring Academy Award-winning Jennifer Lawrence and one starring America’s favorite human, Jim Halpert. America’s voting habits make me nervous.
After an unusually long hiatus, Dancing With The Stars is FINALLY waltzing its way back into our lives. We LOVE this show. It gives celebrities in need of spotlight some much needed extra attention. It’s usually stars we haven’t heard from in a while with nothing to lose by doing the show. There’s nothing that gives us more life than a D List celebrity attempting to dance.
This show is been a juggernaut for ABC, and that isn’t now changing anytime soon. The series has been a fan favorite since 2005 when General Hospital star Kelly Monaco samba’d to victory. Kelly powering through a wardrobe malfunction for a perfect score is still so iconic. She may have been the first, but there have been 26 winners since. Will will be the 28th? Luckily the cast is FINALLY revealed, and WHAT A LINEUP.
The reality stars had a lot of fun this weekend. We have reality star sightings at the Billboard Music Awards, the Vanderpump Dog Foundation event, and more!
Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Erika Jayne attend the 2018 Billboard Music Awards in Las Vegas. She was on the red carpet with Frankie Grande. Also spotted: Andy Cohen, Jennifer Lopez, DJ Pauly D and more!
This weekend was also the 3rd Annual World Dog Day event put on by Lisa Vanderpump and the Vanderpump Dog Foundation. A slew of Vanderpump Rules star turned out, as well as Lisa’s Beverly Hills co-stars Teddi Mellencamp and Camille Grammer.
Luann de Lesseps attended the 2018 Chita Rivera Awards at NYU Skirball Center in NYC.
Tonight was the annual 2018 MET gala, otherwise known as Andy Cohen‘s favorite night of the year! As per usual, Sarah Jessica Parker took him along as her plus one. The theme this year was Heavenly Bodies: Fashion & The Catholic Imagination.
Kim Kardashian West went solo since Kayne has fled back to the mountains again. I figured she’d do a little “more” but this dress looks like something she’d wear on a typical Starbucks run. Okay, maybe not Starbucks, but it feels like every other red carpet look we’ve seen on her.
Kim‘s sisters, Kylie Jenner and Kendall Jenner were also in attendance – as well as mom Kris Jenner.
The Hadid sisters were also there, naturally. As was American Idol‘s Katy Perry. Check out the photos in the gallery below!
TELL US – Who do you think wins Best Dressed for the event?
When American Idol first 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 Idol just 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.
David Foster has been accused of ditching Yolanda Hadid when he got sick of her being sick. The ex-husband of the former Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills star denies that Lyme was the only reason for their split.
David also defends his treatment of Yolanda during their marriage, and insists they both tried to make it work even though rumor had it that he got sick of paying for hallucinogenic elephant healing in Thailand?
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” to Kelly 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.”
Notably missing (to me anyway) were Adam Lambert, Haley Reinhart, Casey Abrams, Crystal Bowersox, and a mention of late Michael Johns. But, still, it was a great two hours of television. That I may or may not have watched twice already. 😉 Look below for pictures from the American Idol series finale.

Last night the reality stars were out in L.A., trying to rub elbows with the A-listers of TV and movies, hitting up the Golden Globes after parties. A few lucky ones, like American Idol’s Jennifer Lopez, scored an invite to the actual ceremony.
We’ve gathered up some of the glam gowns of the night from reality stars like NeNe Leakes, Kourtney Kardashian, Kylie Jenner, Tamar Braxton, DWTS’ pro Cheryl Burke, Toni Braxton and many more.
