They probably wanted me to audition and I didn’t feel like doing it, or maybe they wanted me to jump through hoops and I didn’t feel like doing it,” Posey said. “Honestly, I just didn’t care about it enough to be grounded in it… And she won the Academy Award!

Allyson Donovan, the 32-year-old victor of the E! network’s controversial series “Bridalplasty,” may be the only winner of a reality-television competition to celebrate by getting cut.

She was also treated to a total smile makeover. “It was well worth it!” she tells us. Read more… Keep reading »
