- Perez Hilton is producing and starring in a new reality show about gay fathers called “Gay Dads Of New York.” Hilton adopted a baby boy last February. He is completely odious, but I would still watch this. [Hollywood Reporter]
- Keri Russell was the victim of a burglary last night when she woke up to hear two men inside her Brooklyn home. The burglars were caught nearby and the “Felicity” star had her laptop, jewelry and purse returned. [Page Six]

I love a reality TV villain. Going all the way back to the first season of “Survivor,” when I rooted for Richard Hatch to win, my favorite reality TV stars have always been the conniving and backstabbing ones, who toss out razor-edged insults without fearing the consequences. Remember how much I loved Courtney Robertson during Ben Flajnik’s season of “The Bachelor”? I mean, if they have a touch of sociopath in them, all the better.
That’s why I am obsessed with Stassi Schroeder on “Vanderpump Rules,” the Bravo spinoff of “The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.” Stassi is a waitress at SUR, the restaurant owned by “RHOBH” cast member Lisa Vanderpump, and is frequently at odds with her friends/coworkers and her on/off boyfriend Jax. And when Stassi is at odds with someone, WATCH OUT. Stassi is known for her wildly over-the-top and often violent-sounding “threats”; in her on-camera interviews, she often goes off on long, fantastical tangents about what she’d like to do to certain people. They’re really quite clever, especially when they’re directed at her lying, cheating whipping boy, Jax. She’s basically the High Priestess Of Castration. Inspirational!
Now, I’m not suggesting you start threatening people left and right, over petty shit like Stassi does — but I do suggest you put some of these Stassi-isms in your back pocket, to pull out the next time someone does you wrong. For example… Keep reading »
The first thing I did after watching this video was hit up Google with the question, “is holland racist.” Perhaps not the best-formed inquiry, as far as reading comprehension goes, but a valid question nonetheless. It does, indeed, seem that the Netherlands might have a history of being a little racist, considering hundreds just recently staged a march as a show of support for Black Pete, the charmingly named “Christmas sidekick” of good old significantly less racist Saint Nick. Still, this fails to excuse (along with every other racist, ever) “Holland’s Got Talent” judge and grown man wearing a T-shirt with a leather-sleeved blazer Gordon Heuckeroth, who spewed some unmistakably racist comments in the direction of a Chinese contestant during (what I presume is) this week’s episode.

Teresa Giudice, everyone’s favorite New Jersey housewife, was smacked with even more federal fraud charges this week along with her husband. The Feds indicted Teresa and her husband Joe Giudice on one count of bank fraud and one of loan application fraud. That second charge refers to a mortgage loan application on which the couple falsely stated that Teresa made $15,000 a month as a real estate agent. (In reality, she had no job at all.) The new charges come on top of July’s 39-count indictment for fraud, tax evasion, allegedly withholding financial information, and trying to illegally obtain mortgages and loans by inflating their incomes. The Giudices plead not guilty in August, and apparently plan to do so for these new charges as well. A trial is scheduled for February 24 of next year. The couple faces up to 50 years in prison.

10 Reasons To Be Obsessed With Carlton Gebbia, “The Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills”‘ Resident Wiccan
Guys, we need to have a conversation about “The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills,” specifically the show’s newest cast member, Carlton Gebbia. Carlton, who hails from the UK incase you couldn’t tell by her snooty accent, is a witch. Rather, she’s a practicing Wiccan, but she has an affinity for religious symbols and iconography in general, especially from an interior decorating perspective. Her gothic-style house is covered in crosses, pentagrams and other religious symbols — but don’t you dare think that’s any excuse to inquire about something as personal as her religious beliefs. After last night’s episode of “RHOBH,” which gave viewers a closer look at her home, her nanny (more on her in a sec) and her interactions with the other housewives, I am pretty much obsessed with Carlton and her potty mouth. She’s like Bellatrix Lestrange, but less threatening to child wizards. Anyway, allow me to review the reasons why Carlton is awesome, after the jump… Keep reading »

“The Real World,” television’s second longest-running reality show behind “Cops,” is switching things up for their 29th season, which will have the cast returning to the third season’s home of San Francisco. Initially, seven strangers will move into a house and have their lives taped … but one month into the three-month shoot, the roommates will go on a day trip … and when they return, they’ll discover their exes have moved in. Something tell me people are going to stop being polite and start getting real right quick. According to an article on EW.com, it sounds like “The Real World: Ex-plosion” has already been filmed and while this little twist took some scrambling to arrange — producers had to convince the exes to drop everything and join the cast too — it worked out, with five of the seven agreeing to appear on the show as well. It will air sometime next year on MTV. Keep reading »
Aaaand this one falls firmly under the category of Things I Do Not Wish To See On My Internet: “Teen Mom 3″ star Mackenzie Douthit McKee graced Instagram to share a touching family photo depicting herself, her husband, and their two-year-old son proudly showing off their latest kill. Trust, there is nothing I am more interested in seeing on my computer screen than a gruesomely murdered buck, blood trickling out of its mouth, eyes still open, organs exposed, being held up by the horns next to two grinning morons and their barefoot toddler on the back of a pickup truck. You can see the uncensored photo on Mackenzie’s Instagram, because I am not about to repost that shit. #lovemylife [Us Weekly]

Jon and Kate Gosselin, of the infamous series “Jon and Kate Plus 8,” still make headlines with their vicious legal battles. We rarely hear much, though, about the kid that got them on TV in the first place. Thirteen-year-old twins Cara and Mady and 9-year-old sextuplets Hannah, Alexis, Collin, Leah, Aaden and Joel grew up with camera crews in their home from 2007 to 2011. When Jon spoke with Oprah Winfrey Sunday night on her series “Where Are They Now,” he admitted to what viewers had long suspected — growing up as a pint-sized celebrities impacted his children’s sense of character.
“Yes, they have trust funds, and they’re taken care of educationally. Great. But developmentally, they have problems with their peers, and they have problems with talking to other people.” Keep reading »
