In the endless quest to create new, exciting and compelling reality TV shows, it seems that producers sometimes engage in strange equation-making. Z-list celebs + jungle setting + strange tasks = “I’m A Celebrity, Get Me Out Of Here.” Or desperate single ladies + mansion setting + one eligible dude = “The Bachelor.” But the math for the latest reality TV iteration, “Stars Earn Stripes,” seems all wrong. In this one, military professionals + Z-list celebs + real ammo and explosions is supposed to equal good TV. But many feel that the show — which stars Nick Lachey and Olympic skier Picabo Street, amongst others — not only makes a mockery of the important work of the Armed Forces, but also glorifies war.

Kim Kardashian isn’t about keeping things private. So I guess I shouldn’t be too surprised that Miss K allegedly wants her wedding to Kris Humphries to be televised. “It will be a two-hour stand alone special,” a source has squealed. “[Kim] is so used to having cameras follow her that she doesn’t even notice them any more. Kim really wants her fans to celebrate with her on the most important day of her life.”
Apparently, Nick Lachey feels the same way. He and Vanessa Minnillo have signed on to air their wedding on TLC in a special called “Nick & Vanessa’s Dream Wedding.”
Divorce rates these days are high, especially for celebrities. And the only way to make a bustup even more likely is to televise your nuptials. See what I mean after the jump Keep reading »
Well, that was fast! Just a week after Nick Lachey and Vanessa Minnillo announced they are engaged, and but a few days after telling Ryan Seacrest that she’s, like, totes happy for him, Jessica Simpson has confirmed that she is engaged to boyfriend Eric Johnson. What a coinkidink! Simpson and Johnson have been dating since May and he traveled to Italy with her to celebrate her 30th birthday in July. The two were already planning on spending the holidays together, but I guess they now have something new to be thankful for — managing to steal Lachey and Minnillo’s thunder. As Michael K over at Dlisted noted, let the bride wars begin! [People via Dlisted] Keep reading »
“I am extremely, extremely happy for him. I couldn’t be more happy for Nick. I don’t know where all those rumors came from. My mom actually called me and told me that everybody was saying that I was ‘saddened.’ And I was just in complete shock. You know, our relationship was over a really long time ago, so it would be nice if everybody could move on with us and really just celebrate the love between him and Vanessa. I do, and I wish them nothing but the best.”
– Jessica Simpson called into Ryan Seacrest’s radio show to shoot down rumors that she was “saddened” to hear that her ex-husband Nick Lachey is engaged to Vanessa Minnillo. Personally, I never thought Jessica might be bummed that Nick was getting remarried because she, like, misses him. I just thought she might be upset because he got remarried first. But I guess I was wrong. [via Dlisted] Keep reading »
