If last night's season premiere of "The Real Housewives of New Jersey" taught us anything it's that the more things change the more they stay the same. Season four picked up exactly where season three ended: With Caroline Manzo, Melissa Gorga, Kathy Wakile and pretty much everybody else hating on Teresa Giudice.
We loved Lauren Conrad and watching the drama of her life unfold each week on Laguna Beach and The Hills, but we must say, the grownup Conrad impresses us even more these days.
Bethenny Frankel bends to keep her marriage hot and spicy. And by bend, we mean strikes a yoga pose with her husband, Jason Hoppy.
In the end, Courtney Robertson beat out 24 other women for Ben Flajnik's love ... and one big engagement ring!
Ben Flajnik is clearly not using his head (at least not the one that houses the brain). Had he been, he might have made a different choice a long time ago. Flajnik chose Courtney, the model everyone loved to hate. She is gorgeous, sexy, wild, and strange. And clearly she loves him. But why? We may never know the answer.
After watching her tumultuous adventures on in Seaside Heights, Miami and Italy, Nicole 'Snooki' Polizzi is in love, engaged, and on the track to being a mom!
Last week, we leaned that Jersey Shore star Snooki is reportedly pregnant with her first child. Now, according to People, her beau of over a year and soon-to-be baby daddy, Jionni LaValle, has decided to make an honest woman of the bronzed star and popped the question!
Ice-T's wife Coco has been off the market for 11 years, but that doesn't mean she doesn't have her fair share of suitors – even supernatural ones.
It is no secret that black women today are on the receiving end of a full on media assault. We see this in the way we are depicted in popular culture, in movies, television, music and blogs. We are portrayed as undesirable, uneducated, unfit and uncouth. Despite the fact that these depictions are categorically false and preposterous as evidenced in our real day to day lives, the media is all too happy to continue to spew this caricature of us.
Monday night on The Bachelor, Kacie B. followed Bachelor Ben Flajnik to Switzerland in order to do two things. The first thing she wanted to do was "warn" Ben about the evil Courtney, but the second thing she wanted to do was find out why Ben dumped her. Yeah, she made one giant, huge, unbelievably humiliating mistake.
Year after year we enjoy dissecting the cornucopia of colorful characters seeking love Bachelor style. After all, they're cast no differently than the consciously composed ensemble of a Hollywood movie. Film producers wish to cash in on their featured collective with highbrow awards, while Bachelor producers along with the network make calculated choices designed to rake in a windfall of captivated viewers and extraordinarily lucrative advertising dollars.
Now that it's down to three ladies, who do you think Ben will give his final rose to: Nicki, Lindzi, or Courtney?
Seriously, ABC, this season's girls of The Bachelor are by far the worst crop ever in the history of the show. That said, these girls bring good ratings because they are completely mad and make great television. All that said, last night's drama all revolved around one woman in particular. It was all about Shawntel.
Last night we got a bonus episode of 'The Real Housewives of Atlanta' because ... I have no idea why. There was no major event or any big drama, it was just an extra hour filled with a bunch of random plots.
After her spin-off reality show, 'Audrina,' was axed by VH1 after just one season, Audrina Patridge, not unlike many Americans, found herself unemployed earlier this year. However, instead of crying over spilled latte, the 26-year-old 'The Hills' alumna and one-time friend of Lauren Conrad decided to devote her time to working on herself and her relationship with boyfriend Corey Bohan, whom she broke up with during the season finale of her show.
Daniel Craig, the hot 43-year-old currently working on the 23rd Bond film, Skyfall, was married to actress Rachel Weisz in an extremely private wedding this past summer. He describes the rare feat in the January edition of GQ (via Daily Mail): "We got away with it. We did it privately and I've got a lot of people to thank for that. But that was the point, we did it for private reasons. Because we didn't want it f*****d up, because that would be sharing a secret. And the whole point is that it was a secret. A secret is a secret in my mind."
