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?
For someone who recorded a song called "Let's Talk About Sex," Sandra "Pep" Denton, (of Salt-N-Pepa fame), isn't getting a lot of it. In fact, she hasn't gone on a date, let alone done the deed, in over four years. After suffering a series of bad boyfriends, Pep removed herself from the market in hope that she would magically meet her soul mate. Surprise, surprise, he never made an appearance. "I've had my share of relationships," Pep, 45, laments in the trailer for her new show, Let's Talk About Pep. "But believe it or not, I'm still single! And now I'm ready to get my feet wet again."
Let the airing of grievances begin! Jerry Seinfeld is returning to NBC in February with a new, unscripted series called The Marriage Ref, serving as co-producer along with Ellen Rakieten (rake it in?) of The Oprah Winfrey Show. Jerry explains that this is "not a therapy show, it's a comedy show," pointing out that some of the funniest TV programs throughout history have been about marriage.
Cindy Margolis is back in the limelight. The internet's most downloaded woman has a television program on Fox, debuting January 30, 201. The show, entitled "Seducing Cindy", chronicles the newly-single Margolis' attempts to find a bloke. And, given her documented fertility issues, she is requiring the gentlemen to produce a sperm sample (in a cup, we guess).
The season finale of 'The Biggest Loser' had us rooting for everyone. (It's difficult to choose "the best" when every contestant shed so many pounds. Luckily, the scale was impartial and chose Danny.) But even more heart-grabbing was the romance that Alexandra (voted off in week one) and Antoine (voted off in week two) found at the ranch. In fact, the show has produced two marriages and even a baby (take that, Bachelor) and several relationships. Here, our top three 'Biggest Loser' couples.
A reality show isn't the greatest place to find true love (just ask any of the Flavor of Love/Rock of Love girls, Bachelors and Bachelorettes), and it certainly isn't an ideal environment for an already-in-love couple's relationship to blossom. We're all painfully aware of the destruction reality TV has caused Jon and Kate Gosselin, but let's take a look at some of the other big-time couples who have been cursed by the small screen....Hulk and Linda Hogan, Nick Lachey and Jessica Simpson, Kevin Federline and Britney Spears, Peter Andre and Katie Price, Travis Barker and Shanna Moakler...
A former participant on ABC's Wife Swap is out on bail after an arrest for stabbing her husband. New Jersey resident Jamie Czerniawski cut husband Charles Czerniawski with a kitchen knife after an argument. The former Miss Teen New Jersey claims that she used the weapon in self-defense as her husband attacked her over some flirty text messages were seen on her phone.
Taking a break from fighting with his ex, Kate Gosselin, and defending his relationship with his current, Hailey Glassman, Jon Gosselin spent Saturday afternoon hosting a highly hyped Las Vegas pool party at the MGM Grand's Wet Republic - during which he collected lots of phone numbers from scantily clad ladies.
YourTango this week was all about your favorite dating accessory: Him! From men's tastes in music to their capacity to forgive, if you were paying attention this week, you now know a lot more about him. But, in case you were too busy falling ever deeper in love with your own man, here's this week's best, from YourTango.
Yes awe-struck readers, according to TLC president Eileen O'Neill, when Jon & Kate Plus 8 returns this Monday, we're going to see a whole new side to the family. The show will now chronicle the lives of each parent, trying to raise the children without the other one present. Such fun outing will include Kate trying to erect a tent (no pun indented) in the back yard and Jon trying to cook a pizza for the kids. How many pizzas would you need to feed eight kids anyhow? However, beyond the child rearing storyline, the duo will also be trying to find new companionship and the show will (expectedly) go into that as well. And if anyone really cares, the "iconic" (O'Neill's word not ours) couch will be replaced by two chairs from which the couple will be interviewed. We assume it's because having a couch from Maryland to New York might be a bit of a stretch.
As if we could ever get the nasty residue of "Britney & Kevin: Chaotic" from our eyeballs, Kevin Federline is looking to give reality television another shot and the general public another reason to give up on television altogether. In this potential upcoming series, Federline would star alongside his new girlfriend, former AVP volleyball player Victoria Price. So think 'Chaotic' but with another blonde.
Jon Gosselin is clearly getting a divorce from his Jon & Kate Plus 8 co-star Kate Gosselin. Their breakup has been documented on reality TV. What's Jon up to now? Who is Hailey Glassman? Is he engaged to her? When did Kate get that tummy tuck? And why are some people terrible at Facebook?
Close on the heels of that, Jon has been spotted with various female companions. While Kate plus their 8 have been on a 'working vacation' in North Carolina (with camera crews in tow of course; diligently photographing Kate and the kids frolicking on the beach), Jon was spotted on two occasions with female 'companions'. The first time was over Memorial Day weekend; and then this past weekend he was seen shopping it up in a New Jersey mall with two ladies.
Sometimes a girl has to take matters into her own hands. Per a report from E!, Kim Kardashian is doing boyfriend Reggie Bush a solid by picking out which engagement ring that she wants. On top of that, the Keeping Up With The Kardashians starlet is telling him the ring will cost far more than it actually does to make him feel good when the actual bill appears. Fabulous.
Over the past few months, the tabloids have knocked themselves out trying to come up with new and elaborate details about the deteriorating marriage of Jon and Kate Gosselin, stars of TLC's top-rated reality show, Jon & Kate Plus 8. Stories have included a "confirmation" from 23-year-old schoolteacher/homewrecker Deanna Hummel's brother/roommate that she's brought Jon back to their place for loud sex; allegations from various "sources" that Kate has been carrying on her own affair with bodyguard Steve Neild; and even assessments from body language experts about how Jon's demeanor on camera shows he's a "broken man" (as if we really needed an expert to tell us this). One story we haven't seen, however, is about the rich, valuable lessons we can take away from this whole Jon & Kate debacle. And yes, we know there are many— because if our grandmothers, nursery school teachers, and that weird inspirational office art in the conference room have taught us anything over the years, it's that we can always learn from our mistakes— no matter how disasterous they are. And so, without further ado, YourTango presents What We Can Learn About Love From Jon & Kate.
Katie Price, a British glamour (that means topless, American friends) model sometimes called Jordan, and her excessively spray-tanned husband, Peter Andre, are divorcing after almost five years of marriage, The Daily Mail reports. Equine enthusiast Katie and hilarious Disney cover artist Peter, who met on the UK version of I'm a Celebrity…Get Me Out of Here! in 2004, announced Monday that they would end their marriage.
