In certain couplings, it’s hard to tell who is the crazy one. Is it him? Is it her? With Vienna Girardi of “The Bachelor” and her ex, Brian Lee Smith, most people assumed the latter, just because everyone likes to hate on Vienna. Rumors have circulated that she was still dating Smith when she left to film “The Bachelor,” and that since returning from the show, she’s been following him and his new girlfriend around, harassing them. But RadarOnline.com has uncovered some info that tells another story—that he’s the crazy one. They recently found out that Smith was arrested in October for trespassing at Vienna’s parents’ house and they have the mug shot to prove it. Sources back this up. “They broke up at spring break of last year,” says a friend. “Vienna has not even seen Brian since he was arrested in her front yard.” She just got another degree more believable to me.

Here is a “Jersey Shore” twist. They may wear Italian flags, say they’re looking for muscled-up Italian men and call themselves Guidettes. But it turns out that neither J-Woww or Snooki is actually Italian. In a radio interview for Fox News, J-Woww revealed that she is Spanish and Irish—her last name is Farley. And Snooki is Chilean by birth, though she was adopted and raised by an Italian family. She also said that Ronnie is half Italian. When the DJ asked Jenni to explain why they use the term Guido so often on the show, Jenni explained, “That’s a stereotype that people misconstrued with Italians. It’s a lifestyle. Like, the scene that we’re in. It’s not, like, Italian.” Huh? I’m confused. [PopEater] Keep reading »
I know what you’re thinking: AGAIN?!?!
Oh, yes! Kirstie Alley
, the woman behind “Fat Actress” and oh so many weight loss
commercials, has let reality TV cameras into her home to do a show about losing weight. (And, apparently, her pet lemurs.) Keep reading »
Back in December we got word that Bravo was considering dumping NeNe Leakes and Kim Zolciak from “The Real Housewives of Atlanta” cast and replacing them with other wealthy and powerful Atlanta women. Now, we’re hearing that entertainment lawyer Phaedra Parks, who counts Bobby Brown as one of her celebrity clients, could be one of the replacements. Sounds exciting … another self-made housewife who isn’t trying to jump-start her career while taping the show. But what’s most intriguing and could result in some major drama is that Parks’ husband is a convicted felon. A few months ago, Parks married Apollo Nida, who is on parole stemming from a conviction for his involvement in an auto theft ring. And he spent six years in prison for two unrelated crimes. Sounds like a whole lotta drama, especially if the other housewives start talking trash about Parks and Nida. [Media Takeout] Keep reading »
On last night’s episode of “The Bachelor,” Ali Fedotowsky, who tearfully left the show last week because she was going to get fired from her job at Facebook if she didn’t go back to work, called to tell Jake Pavelka she made a mistake. However, in the 10 seconds (OK, few weeks, probably) that has passed since she bid him adieu, Jake had “fallen in love” with the three remaining women and didn’t think it was a “good idea” to let Ali come back for a second shot. Ali shed even more tears as she declared that leaving was the biggest mistake she’d ever made, and, I believe, her “performance” likely earned her the title of the next “Bachelorette.” While nothing is confirmed, Ali paid a visit to “The Ellen Show” and hinted she might be interested.

OK, so I don’t know for sure that the model wannabes competing in Cycle 14 of “America’s Next Top Model” are wearing American Apparel, but their monokinis, leotards, and jewel-tone tights look an awful lot like Dov Charney‘s wares. Too bad the new crop of hopefuls aren’t as interesting as the “models” on the American Apparel site, but at least Gabrielle tried. I will say, though, that the contestants do look sort of intriguing, which means I’ll be screaming, “I hate you, Tyra Banks,” at my TV screen for at least one more season. Will you watch “America’s Next Top Model” Cycle 14 when it premieres March 10 at 8 p.m. on The CW? [Starpulse] Keep reading »
Sammi and Ronnie were an inspiration for young guido lovers everywhere … until MTV revealed some shady footage of Sammi flirting with The Situation on the “Jersey Shore” reunion show. As we all remembered, it prompted dramatic tears from Sammi (she locked herself in the bathroom) and some dramatic words from Ronnie, “I cut girls quicker than barbers do.” Harsh, dude. Based on their tumultuous history at the Shore house, I was predicting they’d be back together before I could say, “Gym, tan, laundry,” because that’s just how SamRo rolls. But I guess I was wrong.

This year, Jennifer Lopez will be spending more time on the small screen than she did when she was a dancer for “In Living Color.” In addition to being in talks to play a cafeteria worker on “Glee,” Lopez is currently shooting a guest-starring role on “How I Met Your Mother.” She’s playing Anita Appleby, a self-help guru who teaches women to trick men into relationships. When Robin tells her about Barney’s exploits, she makes it her mission to “break him.” Neil Patrick Harris, who plays Barney, posted a pic of him with J.Lo on his Twitter account. “Jennifer Lopez was really great— hot, cool, and funny,” he said. “And well prepared! She gave me a few pointers. Here’s one of them.” Ba-dum, ching. [Hollywood Reporter, Twitter]
So why the television blitz? Jennifer hasn’t had a memorable role or album lately, and meanwhile rumors continue to swirl that there’s trouble in her Marc Antony paradise. And let’s just say that doing a cameo on “HIMYM” has a certain way of putting a person back on the pop culture map. Let’s take a look, shall we?

. Last week she invited New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees on her show. If you’ve seen him at least once sans helmet, you know that he has a birthmark by his eye. Oprah, apparently had no idea. Watch above as she says, “Who just kissed you? There’s a big old smudge right there,” and then tries to wipe it off. Awk-ward. Keep reading »
