If you lived anywhere near my apartment building, you would have heard a dramatic scream of “Noooooooo!” circa 9 a.m. this morning. Why? Because I read that Leah Messer and Corey Simms of “Teen Mom 2“—aka the couple I dubbed the most inspiring on television—have split after just six months of marriage. Apparently, it was Leah who did the leaving, moving out of their family home after a series of fights over money. Yesterday, she was spotted at her local courthouse and a clerk confirmed that, while she hadn’t filed anything, she had picked up divorce or custody papers.
She may be off “Dancing with the Stars,” but you can still catch Wendy Williams on TV. Her new show, “Love Triangle,” in which the mega opinionated host helps romantically confused contestants pick who to choose and who to lose, debuted on the Game Show Network this week. We can’t get enough of Wendy’s tell it like it is advice, which is why we’re super psyched she’s sharing her opinions on dating with Frisky readers in our new webseries, “Love It Or Leave It.” In this first episode, Wendy has some tips for women who might be having a hard time scrounging up a date. It’s a good thing I have a significant other, because Wendy clearly would not endorse my every-other-day shower habit as a way of wooing a man. Oops. Be sure to watch “Love Triangle” weeknights at 7:00 p.m. EST /6:00 p.m. CST on the Game Show Network. Keep reading »
Their first time around at Seaside Heights, the castmates of “Jersey Shore” made a reported $5,000 per episode, plus room, board, and a duck phone. For season two, they got upped to $10K per episode, plus bonuses. But the word on the street is that for season four of the show—which will soon be filmed in Italy—the cast members will each be pulling in $100,000 per episode. That’s an 1000 percent increase. Which means our favorite guidos and guidettes’ salaries are accelerating faster than the cast of “Friends”‘ did—it took Jennifer Aniston and crew five seasons to get six-figure paychecks. And need I remind you that in season nine and 10, they were banking $1 million per episode? Do you think “Jersey Shore”‘s popularity will keep ascending or will it taper off soon? Cause if it continues, the cast will soon be able to buy a small country. Keep reading »
One of my New Year’s Resolutions for 2011 was to stop watching the “Real Housewives.” Between Orange County, New York, Atlanta, New Jersey, DC, Beverly Hills and Miami, it was just getting to be far too much of a time suck. Well, it looks like Bravo feels the same way. It’s not just Michaele and Tareq Salahi that they’ve evicted—they’re getting rid of the entire DC cast, making this the first “Real Housewives” franchise to be canceled. It’s not that the show didn’t get good ratings. Apparently, the higher ups at the network just felt that the cast was too uptight and not as fun as the others. Which—true! Keep reading »
Sue Sylvester. Pierce Hawthorne. Ann Perkins. They’re showstoppers, that’s for sure, but not for the reason you might be thinking.
You see, sometimes, even great shows have characters that mess with the flow of a seemingly perfect episode. They can bring an entire show to a halt with a scene. It’s a peculiar tale, especially because some of these characters are played by award-winning TV veterans.
Last year, when “Glee” premiered, we were all about New Directions. But this year, we find most of them boring with the exceptions of Brittany, Puck, and Santana. Nope, this year—like the rest of the country—we are all about The Warblers. So we were pretty excited when we heard that Kurt, Blaine, and the rest of the prep school jacketed crew would be releasing their own album on April 19. It’ll have their hits from the show, like “Teenage Dream” and “Bills, Bills, Bills,” plus a few new ones. Above, a sneak peak of one new track—the dudes’ take on Keane’s “Somewhere Only We Know.”
