Meet Your Newest “Bachelorette”: Andi Dorfman

  • The predictions were right: Andi Dorfman is our new “Bachelorette”! The 26-year-old from Atlanta is an assistant district attorney who famously dumped Juan Pablo after he told her she had only made it down to the final three by “default.” Girl’s got a backbone. [US Weekly, People]
  • Kate Middleton and Prince William are being criticized for jetting off to the Maldives by themselves and leaving their son George behind with his new nanny, who was photographed (alongside a bodyguard) walking him in a pram through London’s Hyde Park. [Daily Star UK] Keep reading »

Last Night’s Big Fight On “The Bachelor” Basically Came Down To The Word “Default”

Well, “The Bachelor” has kind of duped me again. It’s my fault for thinking there was even a chance that last night’s “nightmare fantasy suite” episode would live up to the hype of the teasers, but alas, Andi did not break up with Juan Pablo because he tried to pull a switcheroo and stuck it in her butt during the overnight dates. While that may have happened — girlfriend is walking kinda slowly the morning after (as you’ll see in a clip after the jump) — Andi’s reason for dumping Juan Pablo was the sudden realization that he’s a self-absorbed, uninteresting douchebag. Um … it took until the second to last episode to figure that out? Maybe not! After the jump, my assessment of last night’s debacle — which included a lengthy fight over whether Juan Pablo would use the word “default” (I’m serious!) — and some thoughts on who the next “Bachelorette” could be.

“The Hills” Producers Wanted Spencer To Leave Heidi At The Altar

  • “The Hills” producers wanted Spencer Pratt to leave Heidi Montag at the altar. “I’m like, ‘There are people that flew here. Heidi’s dad will choke me to death,” Spencer recalled. Maybe Heidi and Spencer are human after all! Reality TV producers are still scum, though.  [US Weekly]
  • Dylan Farrow speaks out again about the blacklash to her New York Times op-ed about sexual abuse allegations against her father, Woody Allen. [People]
  • Amy Adams began sobbing while filming “Inside The Actors Studio” when James Lipton asked her about working with Philip Seymour Hoffman, with whom she filmed “Doubt” and “The Master.” Cate Blanchett has also cancelled upcoming media appearances to grieve her friend. [US Weekly, US Weekly]
  • After 23 years of sobriety, Hoffman reportedly had his first drink at a 2012 wrap party for “The Master,” which is how he fell off the wagon.  [TMZ] Keep reading »

Brace Yourselves, “Mexico Shore” Is About To Become A Thing

Whether you like them or not, Snooki, The Situation and company will long be missed. The “Jersey Shore” cast created a legacy durable enough that other reality TV wannabes are happy to carry on their traditions in their absence. “Mexico Shore,” which is exactly what it sounds like, is now in the works to fill the void that the Seaside Heights meatballs left in our reality-loving hearts. MTV Latin America will start airing the series in September. Keep reading »

Another “Bachelor” Wedding Goes Off Without A Hitch!

  • Last night, former-”Bachelor” Sean Lowe and his final rose recipient Catherine Giudici tied the knot in a live, televised ceremony. I kind of can’t believe these two walked down the aisle — I was sure they’d break up before they got the chance. But how much did ABC shell out for their “grown sexy” (shudder) wedding? Hint: A LOT. [Your Tango]
  • I like Macklemore & Ryan Lewis’s album, The Heist, but I don’t think it deserved to win Best Rap/Hip-Hop Album at last night’s Grammy Awards — and neither did Macklemore, who sent a text to Kendrick Lamar saying he was sorry that he “robbed” him of the award he deserved. [Celebuzz]
  • Quentin Tarantino is suing Gawker Media for posting links to his linked script. [Newser] Keep reading »

Following Kate Gosselin’s Awkward “Today Show” Incident, Jon Gosselin Remarkably Comes Out As The Less-Awful Parent

“I felt really bad. I mean, I didn’t care too much for Kate or whatever, but I felt really bad for [13-year-old twins] Mady and Cara because I love them and they’re just put in this situation. It was like deer in the headlights. It just kind of proves my point of Kate bringing the kids out instead of her just sort of doing it herself. It all blew up in everyone’s face and I feel horrible for my children because now they’re going to have to deal with the public. By body language they were probably like, ‘What’s the moral thing to do and what does my mom want me to do?’ They were torn and they just shutdown. It was just a classic case of being silent. You get to a point where you are like, ‘I don’t know who to please. Do I please myself or do I please my parents — or my mother? [When asked if the twins were manipulated] In my heart that’s what I believe, that’s how I feel. Can I prove it? I can’t prove it, but you can’t take my feelings away from me. I feel that way.”

It’s been a few years since anyone cared about “Jon & Kate Plus Eight,” despite Kate Gosselin’s impassioned effort to shove herself and her children in the spotlight. After Kate dragged the couple’s twin daughters on “The Today Show” yesterday [second item] to parrot how ‘normal’ they are and both girls, tellingly, clammed the fuck up, Kate’s ex Jon Gosselin has actually emerged as the saner parent. Jeez, these poor kids. Can’t they just have a truly normal life and get off our TVs? (I’m sure Jon thrilled to see his ex-wife humiliated on live TV, though.) [US Weekly] [Photo: WENN]
