Snooki's new boyfriend, Jeff Miranda, recently got down on one knee and popped the question. But not before popping his shirt off and making sure there was a camera crew nearby. Yes indeed, like a real Prince Charming, Jeff's proposal was sent to Snooki via magazine cover.
The cast of MTV's Jersey Shore certainly don't mind sharing their own opinions with the world, especially when it comes to love, dating and sex. Whether it's Mike, "The Situation", giving a short monologue about why everyone should love him, or Snooki offering her standards when it comes to choosing a man, this bunch is infamous for their ridiculous quotes. So here, for your personal entertainment, are a few of our favorite love quotes from the guidos and guidettes on MTV's Jersey Shore.
How perfect is it that former LA Lakers, now Boston Celtics basketball player Shaquille O’Neal is engaged to someone with the nickname "Hoopz"? The 7’1, 350-pound center, who divorced his ex-wife Shaunie in 2007, is said to have recently proposed to Nicole "Hoopz" Alexander, a reality TV star, best known for winning the first season of Flavor of Love. (It was Flavor Flav, in fact, that gave her the nickname because of her love of basketball and the fact that she played in high school and community college.) Sadly, although her on-screen romance with the rapper didn’t work out, she went on to become a contestant on VH1’s I Love Money and, like many reality stars, is now rumored to have a sex tape.
All these shows have one thing in common: constantly maxing out the drama to get the highest ratings. But this comes at a price: whether it's getting the latest Gucci shoes or the handsome pilot with a heart of gold, these shows constantly show people behaving at their worst. They usually ensure that there's plenty of booze to loosen tongues, and plenty of drama—real or artificial—to keep the show moving. But at the end of the day, are those models of behavior we want people to emulate?
The Duggars' crazy talk has landed them on the cover of People again...A proudly beaming Jim Bob stands next to his zombie wife Michelle, who holds in her arms new daughter Josie: The baby who nearly didn't make it after spending six months in the hospital...the baby who was born while Michelle developed the life-threatening condition preeclampsia. Still, the Duggars say that they're "ready for more."
Last Thursday, we and 5.3 million others welcomed back our favorite fist-pumpers—only this time they're GTL'ing on the shores of Miami. If the premiere was but a slice of the upcoming guido cake, we're bound to love this season even more than the last. There's just something about the abnormally tan cast that keeps winning us over time and time again. With help from a recent Rolling Stone exclusive tell-all, we found 5 quotes that might explain why we fell for Italy’s finest. And if maybe we acted more like them (minus getting arrested for disorderly conduct), someone could fall for us, too.
Reality TV may be the newest venture for movie star, Tom Cruise and his wife, actress Katie Holmes. According to the Hollywood rumor mill, the Mission Impossible star, whose last few films have been total flops, wants to use a reality show to help revamp his image.
So, remember before when we said we were on Vienna Girardi's side, after a charmless Jake Pavelka generally acted like a tool and made her cry on their Bachelor reunion interview? Well, we take that back. The reason we're back to hating Vienna? We've discovered that, right before she began filming The Bachelor, Vienna asked her then-boyfriend to marry her! RadarOnline is reporting that Vienna told live-in boyfriend Brian Lee Smith...
What do you get when you cross a sensual 73-year-old woman with a 33-year-old single father in a salsa bar in Manhattan? No, this isn't a set up for some obscure, bar bar joke. Rather, it's the premise for the premiere episode of TLC's new series Strange Sex.
Last night, we flipped on TV to watch a fight and a Bachelor reunion broke out. *Ba-dum-bum* The only winner in Monday night's verbal slug-fest between Jake Pavelka and Vienna Girardi was ABC. The rating-grabbing interview didn't help endear either D-lister to the public—although if we have to pick sides, we'll wave the flag for Team Vienna. It seems to be a popular choice.
The Bachelor's Jake Pavelka and Vienna Girardi said they wanted "privacy" to deal with their breakup. But we don't think that word means what they think it means, because the former TV lovebirds are in the midst of a very public "he said/she said" war, dominating the headlines with conflicting tales of who dumped who and why.
On June 20, Showtime unveils The Real L Word, a reality show about the real lives of Los Angeles lesbians. If you think this sounds eerily familiar, you're right. The Real L Word is the reality kid sister of the network's similar, scripted series, The L Word. This "real" version, however, promises to give curious viewers a true-to-life glimpse into the lives of ladies who lust after ladies.
We can't help but remember our first loves, even if we'd rather forget them. Whether it was a high school sweetheart, your first real relationship after college, or the first person you said "I love you" to, chances are that person still holds a powerful spell over you. Now a brand-new TV show is betting on the fact that—if you haven't already found him on Facebook—you'd like the opportunity to reconnect in real life. Or maybe on live TV. Each Wednesday, "First Love, Second Chance" follows a couple who have decided to reunite and discover whether they still have sparks. OK, we can see the appeal of re-discovering the one who got away, but what would possess someone to do it front of a large chunk of America? We asked a few of the "First Love, Second Chance" cast members to find out—including the pair who got their second go at true love last night.
The women told all, Rozlyn denied everything, and who knows how many production assistants burnt their fingers lighting a hundred, thousand tea lights. Much to our surprise, however, the show yielded some heartfelt, real-world dating tips that could help all of us find love. (Or at least a very, very special connection!) Remember these dating tips the next time you spot that special bachelor or bachelorette.
Remember when everyone was a Carrie, Charlotte, Miranda, or Samantha? Well, now that the first season of scandal-fest reality TV Jersey Shore is over, it's high time to see where you would fit in in Guidette World. Maybe you don't wear hair extensions and Ed Hardy makes you hurl, but haven't we all brought home a few grenades? Read on to see whether you're most like Snooki, Sammi, J-WOWW, or Angelina "Jolie."
A "Bachelor contestant," Rozlyn Papa, is accused of cheating on Jake Pavelka. What's the big deal? Why is it OK for Jake to romance 25 women with wild abandon while the ladies are expected to sit at home and paint their toenails?
