Jersey Shore:  Snooki is planning to move out and moves not even two houses away, around the corner in a small bungalow.  Sam and Ronnie are fighting some more- but seem more mature in their own way (it’s about time), and Mike “The Situation” is on a better path maintaining his sobriety, with a few fits of immaturity.  First of all, I had no idea, saw nothing in the news that would entertain the idea that Mike even had a drug or drinking problem.  So that just goes to show you that you just never know who is struggling with what…However, I did get a news flash on Yahoo- which I love , by the way- their news stories are more scandalous and entertaining more than anyone else- so I am a fan…But I saw something that shows Mike “The Situation” and the crew went on Ellen- and he discussed being sober, but now haters are crawling around trying to claim otherwise- that in a Las Vegas club in Sept.29,  Mike didn’t even remember his own name…Do you even think Pauly or Vinny would let that happen (were they even with him)?  So now- they have their boy Mike’s back tight- not that I could say the same for Ron.  But we never really know behind the scenes how close they all really are.  And Vinney is celibate while at the shore house (because he has a love interest back in Staten Island), and Deanna is without her  boyfriend- which I guess this must be her first serious relationship, so she just seems to cry all the time…  But the one thing I noticed is that Deanna lost quite a few pounds, so congratulations to her- I would say she shed about 15-20 at least and looks a whole lot better- so now Mike instead of making fun of her, is trying to cuddle up to her with compliments.  But in the meantime- Snooki is bored out of her mind not being able to party- and why isn’t Vinney acknowledging Gianni, as if he has some beef with him- Vinney says that Gianni should “dap” it up with him in order to squash the tension?  Well, it all goes to show you- never sleep with your house or cast mate- because everything is just now so awkward!    Maybe Vinney  is turning over in his mind whether Snooki could be the one who got away.  So look out for more Jersey Shore, next week…

And in the land of the Tandang and Kalibaw tribes of Survivor- it’s a new day for Lisa Welchel- she’s been given new life- while the Masting Tribe has disintegrated and the last two standing were split up on to the remaining two teams.  Denise is on Kalibaw- which for her means she is still on the losing team.  Meanwhile her former team member, Malcolm, who is now with Tandang received a warm welcome and now with his first win under his belt with the new team, the energy is riding high and he got to share in his first victory reward- cookies and muffins- how cute (but the sugar is what keeps their energy levels going.  But Kalibaw loses Dana to a non life threatening illness that she could no longer endure and decided to leave the island….  I also just wanted to mention how Jeff Probst is a real instigator…Does anyone else seem to notice how he stirs up trouble?  During the immunity challenge- Jeff seemed to keep pointing out how on the Kalibaw tribe Katie was lagging behind, and also how on the Tandang team, one female member (Abi Marie) sat out and had only competed in two challenges.  I think he tried to help manipulate the game as well.  Who knows they are probably paying him great money to help swing the outcome.  REMEMBER PEOPLE:  INFLUENCERS/ PRODUCERS- THAT IS WHAT THEY DO IN TV LAND.  Luckily for Tandang they won the Immunity idol to keep the team safe, but with the loss for Kalibaw- Dawson was the one who the team felt was the weakest link (and since Denise just got there, she went along with her newest alliance- the men of Kalibaw). So Katie remained safe due to the fact that she usually carries her weight- and the former professional baseball player was getting really nervous as Dawson kept dropping hints that she knew who he was- but at the end never even got to reveal her secret-  I would have yelled it out while I was getting voted off.  Just give a ghetto roar!  LOL


In honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month- I just wanted to mention a brief something about- The Bill and Guiliana Rancic Show.  They are such a cute but very feisty couple.  She is laid back, and he is clearly uptight and controlling.  But they are getting ready for their newest upcoming arrival- their baby boy which is being carried by a gestational carrier (but the child is with her egg and his sperm) and they bought a home in Santa Monica- from none other than MillionDollar listing agent Josh Altman and his brother- whose name I can’t seem to remember (so it must not be as important.)  So they are purchasing this home that is not even ready to live in- but this is in preparation for their new show they will be hosting together- Ready for Love??  Oy, yoy, yoy…  But Guiliana is a breast cancer survivor, and had a double mastectomy, and this is the reason she was unable to carry a child to term, her body just wasn’t strong enough- So to Guiliana and others like her – I salute you!!!

Now on to Tia and Tamara- Tamara got dropped by the show on BET, The Game (or REDUCED, as they would like to term it)- so she decided not to come back to the show.  In the show, her agent made it seem like the casting team wanted to go in a NEW direction- that is also what they said to Marissa Jaret Winokur when they said they fired her from DANCE YOUR ASS OFF - and then replaced her with MEL B- who subsequently helped sink the ship on that show, right into the ground.  So good for you Tamara- you show ‘em whose boss!!  Tamara said that she wanted to go out with a bang- So bang, bang , boogie- you’re out of a damn job…(if it were me, I would have been graciously faded out- at least I would have been working- but I guess in show business- it’s better to leave with your head held high, than with your tail tucked between your legs- or it could have been a stand off, maybe they gave her that option because they probably figured she would take the high road (oops- I mean the high and Mighty Road) and they saved themselves the drama of having to write her out of the show/ fire her…Meanwhile, her sister Tia was working on a movie pilot in New Orleans while 5 months pregnant and cute as a button.  No more independent woman for you…. And if you watch the show- you will find out what the hell I’m talking about.

Meanwhile- Bad Girls Club is finally over with the girls having their last photo shoot- but the girls that were kicked off came back and shocked the hell out of each and everyone of them.  So what happens- Mehgan wants to pick on Ashley, and Christina wants to fight Falen- but Andrea sits back and talks nonsense- no one says a thing, and Erica-gets in Rima’s face and Rima has nothing to say.  So Natasha, the newest cast mate says the girls all went out like punks- “isn’t this the Bad Girls Club”?  Yeah- but Rima then finally comes to her senses and the light bulb goes off when she makes a profound statement:  A bad girl doesn’t have to be loud to get her point across.  It’s about how you handle the drama is what makes you a bad girl.  You can get what you want WITHOUT all the drama.  But really, I think the girls were just scared senseless- because these four cast members would have really ripped them to shreds.  They scared me, and I wasn’t even there….Now- we just have to wait for the crazy brawl reunion which is sure to be just an even bigger mess, hosted by Tanisha from Season 1- And I just want to mention that I am glad they are pushing her career the way they have.  She really deserves it..

Also congratulations to The Young and the Restless, which is my favorite soap of forever-on their 10,000th episode.  I wish them all the success in the world and I know they won’t go off the air without a screaming kicking fight, because their fan fare is atrocious- so keep an eye out cuz I’m sure you will see a lot of previous soap stars trying to get on Y&R, if nothing else to just keep a damn job.  Case in point= Genie Francis (Genevieve/Felicia- General Hospital), Darnelle Williams and Debbie Morgan (Jessie and Angie from General Hospital/ now play Sarge and Tonya), but they better not put Susan Lucchi on, cuz I will be the first one in line to complain!!!

Bad Girls Club Mexico-
Julie and Rima are having a great time “running things”, but the girls are in for a big surprise for the season finale, which I can’t wait for-  all the girls that were previously ousted will be coming back, and it seems Megan will have a big score to settle with Ashley.  I guess she feels she has something to prove so why not pick on the least controversial girl in the house.  Ashley clearly isn’t a threat, but Meghan was so upset that she let Ashley get her kicked out of the house, she is ready to go one last round.  I haven’t really spoken about this show much only because it really just makes my whole stomach turn, and in the future I don’t know if I can continue to watch- I keep hoping there will be something more interesting going on besides drinking and fighting, but I’m wrong every time.  I guess the Producers- or Influencers try to make them have sober moments by going on outings, like this week they went para sailing, but other than that it’s the same old damn thing- drinking and fight, drinking and fighting, and repeat!  That gets so boring- especially when they come on the show with other pretenses- not sure what exactly they are, but then they get fooled into acting like fools!!

In the Real Housewives of New York Reunion- Part I  Aviva explains the sad story of how she became disabled at the age of 6 and lost her leg in the conveyor belt.  And do you believe not even one of these cold hearted B’s shed a tear for her?!!  OMG- well this certainly explains why Aviva has such a hard time with so many phobia- flying and heights, because I have those same fears….And what’s wrong with that?  And what about Lu Ann getting on Carol Radziwill about talking behind her back- “That’s not the Princess that I know”  she said smugly….Carol is all about humble pie, but apparently was not willing to share her friend with the other girls who is a notable designer.  Don’t you just hate that when you think you’re friends with someone, but you are not allowed to use any of their connections?  And in my book, personally that is not a true friend… Just saying

Onto  Part II Reunion of the
Real Housewives of New Jersey: 
This BS is getting out of control!  Joe is now being questioned about whether he had an affair or not, and then Jacqueline spills the beans about how Theresa and Joe call each other names and fight dirty all the time, and how supposedly Theresa has caught Joe in multiple compromising positions (babysitter, secretary, etc). Wow- she is determined to fight dirty…but I am not a fan, they were such close friends at one time and why can’t she just let all of the dirty laundry they shared remain locked and tucked away…That is why it is important not to piss off the wrong people, or your business will be out in the streets!!!  Joe Guidice claims he was talking to someone named Albie on the infamous phone call that was aired- He claims if he was talking to a woman he would have thrown the attached microphone off into the bushes- but personally I don’t believe he is that smart quite frankly!!  But seriously all this fighting is giving me a headache….And for the first time they will have a Part III Reunion…Oh boy- it’s really getting grimy…Stay tuned
Congratulations to The Young and the Restless on it's 10,000th EPISODE!!!  This is the last Soap Opera Standing.  Sometimes the cheese stands alone!! 

Jeanne Cooper (aka Katherine Chancellor)

Welcome  (Darnelle Williams and Debbi Morgan aka Jessie and Angie from General Hospital  )

fox american idol judges thg 121004 wblog Fox: American Idol Is Doing Extremely Well Despite Mariah Carey, Nicki Minaj FeudAmerican Idol:  Why did TMZ release an unauthorized video showing Mariah and Nikki Minaj having a moment?  Clearly this show is not about the contestants but about the 2 warring alpha female judges.  They clearly will not be able to get along, and it seems to be Nikki Minaj fighting for her right as an artist to have a clear opinion without Mariah jumping all over her … It has also come to my attention that Randy Jackson, is also….dun dun dun, Mariah’s MANAGER!  How biased could the show be?  Are you kidding me?  Clearly this is Season 12 pulling out all the stops to build the ratings in advance, but it’s already getting old!  So good luck contestants, because the show will clearly not be about you all….

The Real Housewives of New Jersey:  Well, you saw the reunion show, and if you didn’t don’t worry because they will be replaying it for the rest of the month…. Theresa is clearly tactless in some respects and Jacqueline has a problem with Twitter?  The story runs like this- Jacqueline is talking about her son who has been recently diagnosed with Autism.  And what does Theresa do?  She begins talking about Gia having a boyfriend!  If that isn’t a media whore, then I do not know what is… I wish the Laurita family the best.  But Caroline is not off the hook with viewers either.  Some have called her sour, mean, callous, and a BITTER GINGER.  What do you think….Also Lauren, the youngest of the Manzo children, steps on the scene after having lost 35lbs with the lap band.  On the Wendy Williams show- Theresa stated that she works out and states that Lauren is too young without even having had children to have gone through with the surgery.  I think she definitely has a point.  And Wendy proceeds to call Theresa nuts, and saying that she has changed.  I believe it!  What about Theresa stating on the WW show that she wants her own cooking show?  Wendy- as funny as she is, she too stated that Theresa will end up on a cancelled show like Dina Manzo- remember that?  Dina’s party on HGTV turned into Dina’s funeral…. Is Danielle Staub coming back to the show- HOPEFULLY NEVER.  Also there is some speculation that Theresa will get booted off if no coast members want to engage with her.  Kathy Wakile takes her shot- and her sister Rosie can be heard screaming backstage....Can't wait for the Reunion Part II....

The Real Housewives of New York:  The ladies go one last round at the season book launching party of Carol Radziwill for The Widows Guide to Sex and Dating.  Aviva just won’t let up on Ramona.  She gives it to her every chance she gets.  Go team Aviva!!   But seriously enough is enough already.  Then Heather proceeds to let loose on Sonja Morgan.  And if you notice the men in the background, they just stay out of it.  So the boys are just gonna let the girls dig holes for themselves.  And Carol is so embarrassed she has to tell Aviva and Ramona to calm down.  These ladies always seem to pick the most inappropriate times to butt heads.  They definitely have lost their sense of class and their marbles.  Also, do you think it was okay for Aviva to walk the catwalk at Heather's charity fashion show sans the jacket???

 Bad Girls Club 9:  What can we really say about this clear making of a train wreck.  The new girl Natasha is not even there a week and is already in tears.  But I believe it’s fueled by the alcohol.  You know how some people just can’t seem to hold their liquor?  Well, that is Natasha, and the girls have already smelled weakness- in particular Julie, who is so enamored with herself that she is running the house- yeah- right into the damn ground!  And what’s next, the poor girls should be packing her bags soon, maybe in the next episode.  Gosh, I just can’t wait for this crap to get off the air already.  It’s just the same thing week after week.  But it was nice to see Erica from season 8 when the ladies (if you can call them that) went on a trip to Atlanta.

  Survivor:  I really don’t know who my favorite character is so far.  What do you think?   Will it be as exciting as the last few seasons?? Read More Details Here!!

Honey Boo Boo:  This fiesta of white trash is going for another season, and it looks like they will also get special added episodes for the holidays....This is a mess, but you can't help but love her, she is soooo cute (minus her mom) !!!

Lark Voorhees- Saved by the Bell:  What went wrong??

Her mom claims she has Bipolar disorder.  What do you think??

American Idol Update- So it looks like Mariah has a new diva to contend with on the judge’s panel.  Nikki Minaj.  When reporters called and asked Mariah how she felt about sharing the stage with her on panel, she didn’t even hesitate… hang up the phone.  LOL.  Wow- that is brutal.  Usually the stars are so fake and say something to the effect of, “I can’t wait to work with her” or “She is definitely a strong contender in the music industry,” or something blazee blazee, to cover up the horror of being second fiddle.  But not Mariah, she was damn right rude…. She just gave them a dial tone!!  And I read they are already pulling out the claws and stepping on each other’s toes.  Like talking over one another to make the best points, and so on and so forth.  So stay tuned America- it’s bound to be a good one.  I really think that Mariah needs to just shut up and be pretty, because if it wasn’t for Nick Cannon and the Weight Watchers commercials (America’s most hottest TV Host- I might ad), she wouldn’t even be relevant!  That’s right, I said it.  So you know, she was probably a diva, and they kicked her to the curb and asked cute little Jessica Simpson to come on board.  She probably didn’t give them an attitude.091712_minaj_launch


Nicki Minaj and Mariah Carey Already At Each Other's Throats exclusive.  Mariah Carey wasted no time proving what we told you 2 weeks ago -- there's only room for one diva on "American Idol." Carey and Nicki Minaj went at it during the first "A.I." taping Sunday in NYC. When Nicki started critiquing a contestant, Mariah would interrupt -- not once, but many times. Each time Mariah interrupted, Nicki fought back by loudly talking over Mariah.


Pamela Anderson and Tristan MacManus

Dancing with the Stars- Starting with a real bang!  Pam Anderson, America’s curvy blonde bombshell gets the boot.  Looks like America couldn’t allow their hubby’s to get too many chubby’s looking at her week after week, so they sent her to the chopping block, immediately!  If it were me, I would actually be afraid of a wardrobe malfunction- Just saying!  And I guess maybe America felt the same way.  DWTS is a career comeback for some and a desperate attempt at survival and validation for others.  What side do you think Pam was on?

Best of Episode 05X Factor-

It’s getting hot with all the competition.  However, I keep noticing that Britney is getting all the fan fare.  Britney is so sweet on the show.  And Simon did a great job in asking her to come on.  The ratings are really off the charts, but isn’t Demi Lovato a star?  It’s kind of sad how most of the contestants discount her.  Gee, they’re both Disney girls.  What the heck!  Anyway, just find it sooooo funny that L.A. Reid is a Randy Jackson look alike.  You know he was married to Pebbles- she sang that song on the R &B charts called Girlfriend- then they had a love child and he was on MTV’s Sweet Sixteen.  He actually placed number 1 in his season as the most expensive sweet sixteen party.  But L.A. Reid is no joke, he surpasses P.Diddy when it comes to making hits.  He and Babyface capitalized on the 80’s and ruled the dance charts with songs by Michael and Janet Jackson.  So it’s good to see him stepping back out into the lime light (with his big shiny head)!  Just want to comment on the 52 year young Chinese lady dressed in the sailor outfit, singing, "My Heart will Go On"…. What a mistake.  But it’s all about entertainment factor as well, so we can all use a couple of laughs at some lonely little Chinese lady's expense.  Too bad for her.  She reminded me of the guy William Hung on the first season auditions of American Idol, who sang, "She Bangs", by Ricky Martin.  Maybe she can go far as a carnival act.  Who knows.  Then you get those overly cocky people who are just so- so, but they get their yeses, so we will just have to wait and see.  Can you say- Sophie Tweed Simmons.    Now hope you continue to be amazed, just like me.  Stay tuned

The Voice-

Very boring.  I am not feeling team Xtina nor am I feeling Chrisitna Millian as a hostess.  Chrisitna is not Nick Cannon- even though they dated back in the day. Girl you can’t top him, sorry!  So go back to writing hit songs and making millions that way.  Xtina Aguilera looks very trampaliscious and it gets on my nerves just watching her.  The whole chair thing is a let down.  And I would like to say for the record, the older black woman who sang a Whitney Houston song, was robbed of her chance.  I think it was because she sounded kind of old.  They had this young so-so average singer, like 17, and they picked her.  So, I really think there is some ageism going on in tinsel town, but it’s not my show, and this one is, and thank goodness I can say what I want!

Real Housewives Of New York ReunionReal Housewives of New York-  

 Aviva invited Ramona Singer to brunch in some posh Park Ave eatery, only to lambast her.  Wow, this woman I have to say has the biggest backbone ever!  Jill Zarin, must be home laughing her ass off, watching Ramona run away every time Aviva comes at her!  Go Aviva!  Then Heather invites Aviva, who has a known disability (she has one prosthetic leg) to model on the catwalk for Yummy Tummy, Heather Armstrong’s brand.  But the thing that makes it like hmmm, is that LuAnn- who has massive experience in the fashion modeling world was not invited to model.  Now why was that?  Is Heather trying to get brownie points?  Interesting…

Real Housewives of New Jersey-

Now, I just would like to state that I feel so bad for Theresa Giudice, because she was clearly set up by Kim D- who is dying to be a plant on the show and she can’t get over that.  The whole plot point is that Theresa was trying to expose her sister-in law, Melissa Gorga- as a former stripper.  Who cares, it’s your brother’s life, and it says in the Good Book- the two shall become one- so you know what, Theresa needs to just butt out!  Some of the finale highlights at the end were interesting- Lindsey and Christopher Manzo are splitzville, and I bet mama Manzo was thrilled about that one! Lauren, the chubby Manzo sister got the lapband- and her new makeup artistry business is thriving- Cafface (at the old Chateau Salon of Franklin Lakes).  And another little tidbit is that Dina Manzo has been busy with HGTV taping some silly show called – Dina’s Party- it was more like a funeral!  Dina was clearly nervous and did not exude enthusiasm in her personality.  It’s different when your family is not around holding your hand.  Right Dina?

Big Ang- Big Ang invented TuesGays  at her bar in Staten Island to put some life back into the place.  But not sure that it’s still on and popping like it was in the episode.  But the show is still very entertaining…I’m still hooked…

Survivor Phillipines- now don’t expect me to go crazy with this show yet, because I am not even sure I like it.  Just wanted to comment on poor Lisa Welchel (Blair, from Facts of Life ) who is feeling alone, she says she doesn’t fit in….Get out the slow violin music please:  “I am not sure where I belong, I just don’t seem to fit in with these people”… What do you mean these people!  It’s a game, and damnit you had better learn how to play it quickly!  And of course your feeling alone- you jumped back on TV without any preparation, and this isn’t 1982- it’s 2012 and you had better join us in this century Lisa.  Your stranded on an Island for God’s sake- it’s really all about mind games if you ask me… You can have physical prowess, but your mind has to be sharp and tough at all times.  But its hard when you haven’t eaten in days and your pillow is a sand dune.  It’s hard Baby Girl!  So you need to have a talk with Jesus (she is a devout Christian by the way) and ask Him to help you to pull some miracles out of your ass!  Maybe if she walked on water they would all like her.  She probably went in with the idea that, people would befriend her since she was a childstar icon- but quite the opposite, they totally resent her- so my thoughts to you Lisa- you better buckle up, it’s gonna be a bumpy ride….

Real Housewives of Miami Season 2 Cast - H 2012

Real Housewives of Miami- Stay tuned...It's just a hot mess.  According to THR (The Hollywood Reporter) the cast states there will be lots of spicy drama, including cat fights, insults, and a war of the egos.  It's on like Donkey Kong, so let's get ready to rumble (or maybe a Tango/ Salsa will have to do) !!!

Mob Wives of Chicago- Leah, really looks crazy, but I'm sure glad Nora finally got the truth...If that's what you want to call it.  I don't put anything past Chicago's seedy side.  I think she should continue to seek the REAL truth....God bless her!  Sometimes the cheese has to stand alone...
