Didn't I tell you that Basketball Wives cast member Jennifer Williams would drop her fake "bitch slap" lawsuit against Nia Crooks when the season ended? VH1 and Bravo will continue to produce degrading "reality" shows as long as their gullible viewers continue watching.
Unconfirmed rumors suggest Jennifer Williams was not being asked back for another season of Basketball Wives after she filed a lawsuit against Evelyn Lozada's assistant, Nia Crooks, for slapping her face during an episode of the show [click here if you missed that].
Now, after a rough summer of having her Bentley repossessed and her estranged husband Eric's secret baby put on blast, Jennifer decided she's just had enough and has dropped the suit without settlement.
As you know, most reality shows are not what they seem to be. Producers who are hungry for fame and wealth often fake plots, and even manufacture relationships (Kanye and Kim, Evelyn and Chad), to get their shows picked up by major networks.
That's So Raven star Kyle Massey thought he was set to appear as Bristol Palin's boyfriend in her new reality show, Bristol Palin: Life's A Tripp, which premiered last night.
Kyle and his mother came up with the concept for the show starring Kyle and Sarah Palin's eldest daughter as lovers. The only problem is, the producers of Bristol's new reality show had other ideas.
According to gossip website TMZ.com, VH1 and Shaq's ex Shaunie O'Neal have axed 3 cast members of the problematic Basketball Wives reality show. If true, it can be assumed that VH1 and Shaunie found 3 new cast members -- who were recruited to be "friends" of the other cast members.
A source told TMZ that Royce Reed, left, Jennifer Williams (right) and Kesha Nichols (center) also got their walking papers -- and will be replaced next season.
TMZ claims Royce was axed because her baby daddy, Dwight Howard, got a judge to force Royce to keep his name out of her mouth. Jennifer was let go because she filed a fake lawsuit against Nia Crooks for slapping her on the show, and Kesha was just too "boring."
If this is true, the women are being fired to make room for new cast members who will breathe life into the show's falling ratings.
Update: George Zimmerman turned himself in to Sanford, Florida police and is now in jail, according to a tweet from his legal team.
The Seminole County jail updated its website to show Zimmerman is now in custody as of 50 minutes ago, and he has $500 on his books. Zimmerman's bond was revoked after Zimmerman and his wife claimed he was indigent and couldn't afford bail. However, recordings of jail house phone calls shows the Zimmerman's had full access to at least $155,000 just days before the bond hearing.
Remember last weekend when the paparazzi caught troubled rapper Kanye West with his pants down around his thighs as he emerged from a chauffeured limo with bestie, Kim Kardashian? Well, Kim has an explanation for that.
"He was getting out of the car and his belt got pulled by this hook on the car door and he was trying to pull it up quick and his belt was really heavy," says Kim, Kanye's frequent companion as of late, in an exclusive interview with E! News at E!'s upfronts presentation.
"It's called a wardrobe malfunction," sister Kourtney explains to her sibling.
"It was a wardrobe malfunction, but it wasn't anything intentional," Kim says. "It was not scandalous."
Yeah, right, Kim. Are you sure it has nothing to do with the rumors that the show's producers predict your fake relationship with Kanye is not going to be enough to save the upcoming season of Keeping Up With the Kardashians?
Music producer Kanye West was seen leaving Kim Kardashian's hotel in NYC today. Poor Kanye. His head was hanging as low as his skinny jeans as he walked towards a parked limo.
Maybe he was at Kim's hotel checking out his new digs where he will be staying as part of the cast of Keeping Up With the Kardashians?
In less than a week Kanye has become the laughing stock of Hollywood. His pals Jay and Beyonce have already informed him that Kim is not welcome in their circle. So any chance Kim (and her mom Kris Jenner) had of using the Beyonce's for ratings just flew out the window.
After that 72-day sham of a wedding to Kris Humphries, the Huffington Post reminds us that Kim famously said she would not have another relationship in front of the cameras. Of course we know she's a liar, but some people need more convincing.
HollywoodLife.com caught up with the top body language expert after Kim and Kanye public displayed their love in NYC at Scott Disick‘s restaurant opening, and she tells us that they’re turning up the heat for the E! cameras!
“No matter what anyone says the body doesn’t lie,” Dr. Glass tells us. “Kanye and Kim may be holding hands and may be all smiles for the camera but the truth is they are looking in different directions which means they are not like minded. There is too much physical space between them. When people are truly into one another you don’t know where one ends and the other begins.”
Even though the two of them are smiling and holding hands Dr. Glass says there’s no chemistry between them.
“There is a stiffness in Kim’s body language,” Dr. Glass the author of Toxic People and Toxic Men adds. “You don’t feel the chemistry between the two of them. No matter how [many] KW earring sets she wears we are not feeling it because neither are they.
While there may be a lot of lust going on behind closed doors, the emotional and mental connection required in a deep relationship seems to be lacking in my view.”
The "Basketball Wives" publicity machine is running on all cylinders -- assisted by corny write ups on TMZ.com.
This entire season of BBQ Wives centers around 2 episodes -- this week's and next week's -- in which Jennifer Williams, Evelyn Lozada, and Evelyn's fake "assistant" Nia, go to war.
Nia fired the first salvo in January by slapping Jennifer (who I'm told will be paid a bonus for fighting). The slap was conveniently filmed by VH1 in January and aired in this week's episode.
Then, yesterday, TMZ reports that Jennifer filed a civil suit against Nia -- in April -- for a slap which occurred in January. Coincidentally, the civil suit was filed after the episode aired. I'm sure the courts don't take lightly to being pimped for television ratings.
How much are you willing to bet this frivolous civil suit will be dropped before it can be tossed out of court?
Anyone with common sense can see that Kim Kardashian needs a miracle to save her reality TV career. Most of America has tuned out and dismissed the Kardashians as a family who will do anything for money and attention.
Just in time for the upcoming season of "Kourtney and Kim Take NY", Kim, who has more tricks up her sleeve than magician Criss Angel, has pulled Kanye West out of her hat. And Kanye is more than happy to play the role of useful idiot to get in good with the Kardashian klan.
Even the most levelheaded Kardashian -- Khloe -- is playing along with Kim and Kanye's publicity stunt.
Stranger things have happened. A pal tells the new Us Weekly, out now, that Jay-Z's close friend and collaborator West, 34, has fallen "genuinely head over heels" for Kardashian, 31, with whom he was photographed gallivanting around NYC late last week.
"It's not a PR stunt," the source insists of the rapper and reality star. "They're perfect for each other. He thinks she's his Beyonce!"
Mirlande Wilson must be the unluckiest woman in Maryland.
Imagine winning part of a $640 million lottery and telling your work lottery pool that you refuse to share the winnings with them because you bought the ticket on your own -- only to end up losing the ticket.
Wilson, a McDonald's worker who claimed to be one of three winners of last week's historic Mega Millions jackpot, now says she can't find the winning ticket.
She told the New York Post: "I have no idea where it is. I’m not sure I have it. I’m still looking for it. I haven’t even looked in my uniform pants yet."
Yesterday, pop singer Rihanna was among several celebrities who used social networking to bring awareness to a viral video that was created by a charity group calling themselves Invisible Children. The charity's goal is to bring notoriety to the brutal Lord’s Resistance Army (LRA) and its leader Joseph Kony, who allegedly abducts children from their villages and forces them to become soldiers for the LRA.
The charity calls upon celebrities and politicians to help publicize the plight of the child soldiers so that President Obama will continue to fund U.S. troops who are "advising" Ugandan troops on how to capture Kony.
But timing is everything, and the timing of this KONY "movement" has skeptics speaking out about the group's tactics. In November, Foreignaffairs.com published an article criticizing the Invisible Children charity for manipulating the facts and for "exaggerating the scale of LRA abductions and murders" of children.
Another theory floating around is that the KONY movement is just a smokescreen for a grassroots effort to register young voters for the upcoming elections. They say Joseph Kony is already in U.S. custody, and that the Obama administration is waiting for the opportune moment to parade him in front of the cameras.
A loyal reader, who asked not to be identified, thinks this movement is really about the U.S. gaining control of Uganda's rich oil resources.
The Internet is buzzing about Kim Kardashian's generous $200,000 "donation" to charity, which is supposedly double the value of the wedding gifts she received.
But anyone who runs a business knows that charitable donations can be deducted from your income tax. So she really didn't lose a penny.
Kardashian's soon-to-be ex-husband, NBA star Kris Humphries, says Kim's charitable donation is not good enough. He thinks she should give the gifts back too. Humphries was duped by Kim into marrying her for a made-for-TV wedding. The marriage ended 72 days later -- after the taping of her reality show wrapped.
Now we know why Beyonce was in the hospital for so long in January after her surrogate allegedly gave birth to her baby, Blue Ivy. Last night, Beyonce stepped out in public for the first time to attend her husband Jay Z's concert at Carnegie Hall. It was her first public appearance since the baby's birth. No one outside of the Metropolitan New York area even knew Jay Z had a concert last night. Which is a strong indication of the media's decreasing interest in him.
It is obvious from these pics that Beyonce had recent breast enhancement surgery. Beyonce wore a red dress with a plunging neckline so the paparazzi could get good shots of her padding, in a desperate attempt to fool the public into believing she's breast feeding. How pitiful is Beyonce? Well, you won't have time to come up with an answer because the attention whore will be in our faces every day for the next few months -- until the paparazzi grows tired of seeing her.
Last night I was unwinding on social networking website Twitter.com when I decided to have a little fun with reality TV personality, Evelyn Lozada. You see, me, Evelyn and her (very annoying) publicist were cool back when nobody ever heard of her.
It was me who they came to to put out the first rumors about her and Chad Ochocinco being in a relationship. At the time when I started the rumor about them dating, they had only seen each other once (she lived in Florida and Chad was on the west coast filming his show).
Then we fell out over another issue that I won't get into.
