He was only 26 years old :(
I have some very sad, extremely tragic news to pass along today regarding a former contestant on Survivor. Caleb Bankston, who competed with his fiancé Colton Cumbie on Survivor: Blood vs. Water, was killed recently in a horribly tragic train accident. I watched and loved Caleb‘s season of Survivor and I really liked him as a contestant on the show and as a person overall. Despite the nasty way his fiancé played the game, Caleb was able to offset that negativity with his own love and positivity. TMZ has the gruesome details regarding Caleb‘s untimely death. He was only 26 years old. Man. More »
Honey Boo Boo has become "a tiny, dimpled monster."
Salon has published an exposé on reality TV star Alana Honey Boo Boo Thompson, of the really terrible TLC reality TV series Here Comes Honey Boo Boo, that sheds some light on what I think many of us have come to suspect … that the little girl has turned into a raging little brat. To be fair, it’s likely that many children that age who are coddled with fame, fortune and — most importantly — attention, might be spoiled by the excesses of getting everything that they want, any time that they want … but based on my limited knowledge about how things work in the Boo Boo family, I can absolutely believe that this little girl is growing into a monster.

"I've always said I was funny"
Ariana Grande may be a burgeoning pop star but her half brother Frankie Grande is staking his own claim to fame by appearing on the upcoming 16th season of the reality TV series Big Brother. I don’t watch the show but I believe Big Brother features a cast of strangers who are locked up in a house together, cut off from the outside world, and they have to vote one another out until there’s a sole winner … or something. On this show, personality and charisma is key to success. Judging by the photos of Frankie that I’ve seen, I’d say he has enough charisma and personality to make the show worth watching … I guess?

It Kinda Just Hit Me...
We’ve known for a while now that Nicole ‘Snooki’ Polizzi is expecting her second child, and that her real-life BFF is now her real-life pregnancy buddy. Snooki and JWOWW did Jersey Shore together, then they got their own show, and now they’re popping out babies side by side (hopefully not literally, but you know what I mean). So yes, this is technically old news. But Jenni just had her baby shower and this picture totally blew me away. It’s REAL! Click inside for more!
For Example, It's Not The Toughest Job In The World
This past weekend most of celebrated Mother’s Day in some capacity or another, and I feel confident that I had the most amazing Mother’s Day ever. There was a bottomless mimosa bar in my home, my breakfast-in-bed involved Pillsbury cinnamon rolls-turned-belgian-waffles, and I took two whole naps. Two of them. It was insane. But Mother’s Day always gets me thinking, and I’ve spent the last few days strongly considering (and re-considering) motherhood as it plays out in social media, advertising, and in our own heads. I’ve come up with a few thoughts about this business, which I humbly submit to the world today. Click inside for more!

Earlier this month we learned that Real Housewives of Atlanta star Kandi Burruss successfully married her fiancé Todd Tucker despite opposition from her mother Joyce Jones. Today we learn that Bravo plans to air a limited-run spin-off titled The Real Housewives of Atlanta: Kandi’s Wedding which will show us how Kandi and Todd got married, even tho Mama Joyce did everything she could to stop the wedding. As you can see in the just-released first trailer for this limited-run spin-off, Mama Joyce gets into a fight with Todd‘s mother … which calls to mind the nasty physical altercation that took place between Porsha Williams and Kenya Moore during the reunion special for RHOA a couple of weeks ago. For some reason, the people on RHOA like to fight … which is just a messy look on anyone.
Who's In, Who's Out?
Last week we saw video of the physical altercation that transpired between Porsha Williams and Kenya Moore during the taping of this season’s reunion special for The Real Housewives of Atlanta (an altercation, as you may recall, that resulted in Porsha‘s arrest). Today we are hearing casting rumors that claim that two of the cast members of RHOA have been fired now that show contracts have been sent out. Media TakeOut is reporting that of the 6 cast members of RHOA, 2 of them did NOT get contracts to appear in the upcoming season … which essentially means that they are dunzo. Click below to find out who 2 reportedly got the axe. More »
"I will f*ck you up"
Earlier this month we learned that a physical altercation of some sort took place between Porsha Williams and Kenya Moore during the taping of the most recent reunion special for The Real Housewives of Atlanta. After an arrest warrant was issued for Porsha, she turned herself in to police last week to be processed and mug shotted. Last night, part 1 of the 3 part reunion special aired on Bravo and the incident was broadcast in full. As you can see in the video embedded above, Kenya taunted Porsha with props and words until Porsha snapped and grabbed Kenya by her hair, dragging her to the ground. Afterward, Porsha cried of embarrassment while Kenya stormed off the set. IMHO, Porsha should not be fired from the show because of this incident, despite the fact that I 100% do not condone any kind of physical attack like this. More »
