Looking for a truly scary Halloween costume this year? Try a Staten Island mama with mob ties who knows guys that’ll cut your arms off and dump them in the East River if you look at her wrong. In other words, Renee Graziano from VH1′s “Mob Wives.”
Renee is the baddest mob wife on “Mob Wives” by far: she screams, she cries, she threatens, and she cooks up a mean dish of homemade meatball parm. What’s not to love? (I mean, minus the ex-husband and father in prison part.)

You’ve seen one meth head, you’ve seen ‘em all. Ditto for cokeheads, dope fiends, and alcoholics. That’s why A&E’s “Intervention” can get a little stale. Thankfully, there are occasionally people like Allison on the show to remind us, “Wait, you can get addicted to that?” Allison appeared a few seasons ago, but she’s kind of gone down in history as the show’s most memorable addict because of her intense addiction to huffing computer duster which she buys in bulk from Staples. Allison is possibly best known for saying in a singsong-y voice, high on the dust, “I’m walking on sunnnnnshiiiiiiine!” And so am I, every time I watch this episode. (I don’t mean to downplay or make light of the seriousness of Allison’s addiction — I am very glad to hear she is in recovery and doing well.) In a sea of Snookis, Allison makes for the perfect unique reality TV-inspired Halloween costume. Find out how to get her look after the jump! Keep reading »
Kim, Khloe, and Kourtney, meet Zaziwe, Swati, and Dorothy: The newest trio of ladies to enter the big bad world of reality TV will be none other than Nelson Mandela’s granddaughters, the women announced today in Johannesburg. The unnamed show, which will likely air next year, will follow the lives of Zaziwe Dlamini-Manaway (34, a pregnant mother of two); Swati Dlamini (32, a single mom planning to restart her career); and Dorothy Adjoa Amuah (27, a socialite with both a law degree and MBA), all of whom grew up in Boston—Mandela will not play any role in the show, reports the Times of South Africa.

The new season of “America’s Next Top Model” premieres tonight, and while the returning “All-Stars” may consider themselves experts by now, it’s been a while since most of them lived in the infamous “Top Model” house. Coming fresh off last season, I feel it’s my duty to remind them of a few important do’s and don’ts while living in a house full of models. Of course, these pointers come from personal experience in Cycle 16, but let’s face it, with a few minor tweaks, most of these issues apply to any of the seasons. Then again, maybe they should ignore my advice altogether. A bunch of competing model hopefuls in one house makes for great television … especially when they are misbehaving! Click through to see my tips for survival in the “Top Model” house.
When we heard ’90s sisterly girl group Wilson Phillips was somehow gifted a reality TV show by the TV Guide Network — tentatively titled “The Wilson Phillips Project” — we were stoked. Really stoked. But then we realized that our expectations of what an awesome show this could potentially be would most likely never be met. That’s because reality TV producers probably think viewers want to see lots of shots of Carnie Wilson talking about her weight struggles and fighting with her thinner, more boring sister. They probably also think we want to see Chynna Phillips deal with her ever-exploding family drama (mom and are Michelle and John Phillips, from the Mamas and the Papas, and sis is Mackenzie Phillips). But what we really want to see? The three women in vests. On a mountain top. Belting out “Hold On.” [NYMag.com] Keep reading »
