Once upon a time, porn stars aspired to cross over to the mainstream. Now, Hollywood actresses aspire to become porn stars. Actress, model, and single-handed supporter of the Lucite stripper shoe industry Shauna Sand is the latest Tinseltown pseudo-star with a sex tape. Vivid Video, the adult movie industry’s leading production company and the force that brought the world the Kim Kardashian sex tape, says it’s preparing to release “Shauna Sand Exposed” on Oct. 19. Meanwhile, Sand is protesting to anyone who will listen that, yes, she made an X-rated home video with her boyfriend, but “I certainly didn’t sign off on this and Vivid has no right to put it out.” Sand is no shrinking violet. She’s appeared in Playboy sans clothes already. But is this really a “homemade sex tape”? Judging by the trailer, the lighting, the angles, and the fact that Sand keeps looking at the damn camera, it looks like this video was made for the sole purpose of selling it. The release is timed to coincide with the debut of “Leave It to Lamas,” which costars Lorenzo Lamas, Sand’s ex-husband. In Hollywood, the best revenge turns a profit. Keep reading »
Looks like Lorenzo isn’t the only renegade in the Lamas family. His daughter, Shayne, has run off with a 2.65 carat engagement rock. Shayne made a name for herself as a contestant on The Bachelor: London Calling. The wannabe actress won the heart of the bachelor from Britain, who infamously proposed to her by asking, “Monkey, will you marry me?” Well, rumor has it Shayne has been monkeying around in Las Vegas with media magnate Justin Weneger. And another couple TV made has gone sadly, yet predictably, splitsville. Since the engagement was broken, Matt Grant, who is now a bachelor again, wants the diamond and platinum engagement ring back. But Shayne is refusing to hand it over. Well, at least the girl has got balls as big as the rock! We’ve written about the etiquette during this situation before, but are dying for your opinion — would you still keep the ring bling? [Tango] Keep reading »
No, seriously, that’s what Matt, The Bachelor, calls Shayne. Do I suck for thinking that’s kind of cute? Anyway, for once in the entire history of The Bach, I was actually surprised by the finale. Chelsea is the kind of girl who ALWAYS wins this show — the sweet, best friend-type with whom the Bach has a slow build to romance. As much as I was rooting for her, I wasn’t expecting my beloved Shayne to win. But she did! I have no clue whether she and Matt can actually make this relationship last, but I really am kind of psyched Shayne won. She was more than meets the eye that one, which is a lot to expect from the daughter of Lorenzo Lamas. Keep reading »
Bachelor Matt met the fams last night, and while most of the parents were totally boring, Shayne’s parents were priceless. Of course, her father is Lorenzo Lamas (I wonder how Shayne would rate on Lamas’ show Are You Hot?), but his meet and greet with The Bach wasn’t as awesome as I expected. But luckily, Shayne’s mom, Michelle, was as wonderful as I could have dreamed. Shauna Sand (another Lamas ex), behold YOUR FUTURE.
At the end of the episode, Noelle got the boot and only Shayne, Chelsea, and Blah-manda (my nickname for Amanda) remain. I’m sorry, I am rooting for Shayne. I can’t help it! She seems shockingly bright and sincere. [ABC: The Bachelor] Keep reading »
What a great episode of The Bach last night. So many of my favorite props! A spray tan machine, a bubble bath in a jacuzzi, bizarre hiccup-like noises…really, what more could you ask for? I’m just going to go through the highlights, because I realized the reason why we watch this show is not because we’re particularly invested in who gets the final rose, but more in the entertainment value the bachelorettes bring to the table for as long as they’re around. My favorite part of the episode was when Amanda, one of The Bach’s faves, got a case of “the meeps”, a high-pitched hiccup-esque sound that eeks out of her whenever she’s nervous or stressed. What I didn’t get is how the other bachelorettes managed to keep a straight face. I wonder during what other awkward moments she gets the meeps…at the gyno? When she gets pulled over for speeding? During a high-stakes poker game? The meeps are totally Amanda’s tell. Keep reading »
