Was Ali’s Exit A Shocker—Or A Strategy?

Lots of folks were very surprised last night when, after a New England hometown date full of rolling around in leaves and saying things like “If you asked me today, I would say yes,” Ali decided to leave “Bachelor” Jake and head home to San Francisco. Evidently, her boss gave her an ultimatum—come back now or say goodbye to your job. Ali basically begged Jake to say she’d be getting the final rose, in which case she’d stay, but instead he said, “Life is about minimizing your regrets. You just have to weigh which one is going to be a bigger regret.” So has Ali truly thrown in the towel? No way. She just guaranteed herself the win. During last season of “The Bachelorette,” I shared with you a foolproof way to win a dating show: leave. You pull the rug out from under the show’s protagonist, making them realize just how much you mean to them and making them doubt their connection with every other contestant. Then come back and explain just how wrong your decision was—how you can’t live without said person—and, automatically, you’re in like Flynn. Hey, it worked for Ed Swiderski, and it worked for London on “Daisy of Love.” Do we think for a second Ali won’t be back? Please. Keep reading »

Blushing Bride Wants Pauly D To Give Her Away

Many women dream of their wedding days. They envision a sunset ceremony on a secluded beach and the inter-generational dancing at their reception, but most of all, they picture themselves in a poofy dress walking down the aisle … with Pauly D. Yes, you read that correctly. Michael Schweiger, who handles appearance requests for all the cast mates of “Jersey Shore” besides Snooki, has revealed the craziest request he’s received so far. A California bride offered Pauly D $50,000 to walk her down the aisle. Even crazier — Pauly turned the offer down. “Pauly is a serious DJ,” explained Schweiger. “He does not want to be doing stuff that is unrelated to DJ-ing.” [NY Daily News]

Meanwhile, the party poopers over at MTV are trying to rein in “Jersey Shore” appearances.

Quotable: Snooki Dishes About Her New Boyfriend

“He is actually a body builder and works at the gym. He is just like my typical guido juicehead with, like, a good personality. I am really excited to, like, show the public who he is. He is freaking banging. We’re the sexiest couple I have ever seen in my entire life so I am excited for everybody to see that.”

Snooki, who has finally found love and mastered the art of humility Keep reading »

Cool New Show Alert: “How To Make It In America”


HBO series hold a special place in my TV-loving heart, from “The Sopranos” to “True Blood” to “Bored to Death.” So I’m pretty excited for the network’s latest, “How To Make It In America,” which tells the story of two (mighty cute) Brooklyn dudes trying to make it in the New York fashion world using their street smarts, or lack thereof. The show is from the team that created “Entourage,” which bodes well. Plus, it’s got very cool co-stars, like Lake Bell of “The Practice” and “Boston Legal” and Shannyn Sossamon, who we haven’t seen much of since “A Knight’s Tale.” The main dude in the show is Bryan Greenberg, the waaaay hot brother in that terrible movie “Bride Wars.” Oh, and since it premieres on Feb. 14 at 10 p.m., it’s a good low-key Valentine’s Day alternative.

Your Dream “Jersey Shore” Vacation, On The Cheap!

It’s time for a vacation, right? I’ve got an idea for ya. Why don’t you rent the house the “Jersey Shore” kids stayed in for their wild summer in Seaside Heights? Currently, the house will run you $3,500 a night, but come May—when beach season rolls around again—that will go way up, to $6,500 a night, reportedly three times what the house rented for in the pre-reality show days. But think about it: You and your honey could get close in the hot tub, which presumably has been scrubbed down since the summer. You could make a big Italian meal like “The Situation,” cuddle like Ronnie and Sammi, or see if you can master the duck phone a little better than Snooki. Sure, it’ll be freezing out, but you don’t actually have to leave the house. Heck, it’s not like the crew went to the beach more than once all summer. [NY Daily News] Keep reading »

Will You Be Watching “Hotter Than My Daughter”?

The only thing I can say about this show, “Hotter Than My Daughter,” is that it’s wiggity, wiggity, wiggity wack. The concept is pretty simple: The show follows a mother/daughter pair where the mother likes to wear as little clothing as possible while the daughter is a bit more conservative. Take Sharon and her daughter Kobie in the preview above. Sharon may have three children and is about to be a grandma (Kobie is pregnant), but that doesn’t stop her from showing off the surgically-enhanced goodies. Keep reading »
