In Case You Were Wondering … The Sammi And Ronnie Breakup Was For Real

sammi giancola and ronnie magro photo

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.

Can A “How I Met Your Mother” Cameo Turn Jennifer Lopez’s Career Around?

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?

Oprah Awkwardly Attacks Drew Brees’ Face


Oh, Oprah. 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 »

The Palins Won’t Be Tivoing “Family Guy” Anymore

Something very unusual is about to happen here. I’m about to agree with Sarah Palin. On last night’s episode of “Family Guy,” Chris goes out with a mentally handicapped woman. In describing her life, this girl says, “My mom’s the former governor of Alaska,” a pretty obvious allusion to Sarah’s son, Trig. Sarah has responded to the episode on Facebook. Or, err, let Bristol respond? Sarah says, “People are asking me to comment on yesterday’s Fox show that felt like another kick in the gut. Bristol was one who asked what I thought of the show that mocked her baby brother, Trig (and/or others with special needs), in an episode yesterday. Instead of answering, I asked her what she thought. Here is her conscientious reply, which is a much more restrained and gracious statement than I want to make.”

Here’s what Bristol had to say… Keep reading »

“Real Housewife” Lynne Gets Evicted But Keeps Spending Money On Stupid Stuff

I felt pretty bad for Lynne Curtin and her family while watching last night’s episode of “The Real Housewives of Orange County.” When the doorbell rang, daughter Alexa opened the door—and was handed an eviction notice. (Things not to say on TV #436, Raquel: “Is this for real? Or am I dreaming because I’m so f**king hungover?”) When the daughters called Lynne to tell her what was happening, you could tell she was truly shocked and pissed at her husband who’d been taking care of the bills. Apparently, while they were up on their rent, he didn’t have the money to pay the $10K security deposit for the house. When Lynne confronted him, he explained that it wasn’t that he lied to her—he said he was in denial about the situation. Who knows if the two will make up?

But what’s so shocking is just how freely this family has spent money in their two seasons on the show.

Reality TV Star Couples Living Happily Ever After

Awww. It looks like two Bravo reality TV show stars have gotten together—and they didn’t even need the help of “The Millionaire Matchmaker.” Kelly Bensimon of “The Real Housewives of New York City” and recently divorced Sam Talbot of “Top Chef” sure look like they are dating. Although this couple is denying rumors of a hookup, they’ve been spotted at three parties. A friend even said, “I don’t know why they deny it.” [NY Post]

Reality TV show contestants seem to flock together, and many have flocked to bed and then to the altar. In fact, we can think of a quite a few couples made in reality TV heaven. After the jump, our faves. Keep reading »

Boob Tube News: Betty White To Host “SNL”? The End Of “Friday Night Lights”?

  • Who would be the best host of “Saturday Night Live” ever? Betty White! A very vocal group of fans on Facebook are pushing for the 88-year-old to host the show. When I checked, there were over 190,000 fans. I say it’s a go.
  • On Tuesday, “I Love New York 2″ contestant Jamal Rashead Trulove was convicted of first-degree murder. In 2007, just three weeks after filming the VH1 show, Trulove shot and killed Seu Kuka in San Francisco. Trulove was only on one episode—he was dismissed early for fighting. Kinda makes you wonder about the screening process for these shows, huh? Sadly, he’s not the first person suspected of murder after appearing on a VH1 dating show. [Yahoo]

A Snowman Situation

In yesterday’s blizzardpalooza, Stacey Klein, Shaun Kane, and Tom Arnold of Washington, DC, created this genius “Jersey Shore“-themed snowman in a snowman contest. It’s “The Situation”—he’s got etched-in abs, a shirt that says “GTL,” condoms slung over his arms, and a bottle of whey protein beside him. But perhaps the best detail: they gave him a spray tan using soy sauce in a Fantastic bottle. The better to creep with. [NYmag.com] Keep reading »
