Is Anybody Watching Pageant Place?

I just caught the first episode tonight.

DRAMALICIOUS!!

Okay, you guys, here’s the set-up: Miss Teen USA Katie Blair (who’s not Miss Teen USA right now, but was when they filmed this), Miss USA Rachel Smith and Miss Universe Riyo Mori are all living together in Trump Towers.

Katie, as you’ll recall, was all BFF with Tara Conner (aka Mess USA) before she went to rehab. I guess Katie was the one who turned Tara in to the Miss Universe Organization for drug use, thus leading to that whole scandal. Tara thinks Katie did it because Katie thought Tara was moving in on Katie’s boyfriend.

So, to be a huge asshole (and for ratings), Donald Trump announces to the girls that he’s bringing Tara back into the Miss Universe organization, as a sort of mentor for the other girls.

In typical beauty queen style, the girls are all acting like this is cool with them, but this is sooooooooo dick of him, especially to Miss USA, because this really is supposed to be her year. Plus there’s all this tension between Tara and Katie. There is gonna be some SERIOUS beauty queen dramz, you guys!!

Donald Trump is SUCH an asshole. But he is SO smart about this stuff!

Oooooooooh. I LOVE this show already!!!!

Britney Wants to Have Sleepovers with Her Kids

I think Britney Spears woke up in the middle of the night recently and was like, “Where are my kids? What do ya’ll mean they took ‘em away? The little stinky people? They’re gone? Shit, ya’ll. Did ya’ll know that all along? Why didn’t someone tell me?”

And then people stared at her kind of dumbfounded and finally someone was like, “Um, well, yeah. You didn’t take your drug tests and you don’t show up at court and you’re generally not at all in the running for Mother of the Year and Jesus Christ, Britney, you make Kevin Federline look amazing.”

And then Britney was like, “Fuck. This is totally worse than that acid I stole from Andy Dick. What do I do to get those critters back?”

So Brit-Brit’s passed her most recent few drug tests, and, pending the results of her ability to wake up before noon, will appear in court at 8:30 am tomorrow to ask the judge to grant her overnight visits with the kiddos.

Did somebody say paparazzi field day?

Oh, yes.

Michelle Rodriguez is RETARDED (and Going to Jail)

Michelle Rodriguez Will Do Six Months in Jail on DUI

OMG.

How stupid can you be?

After being put on probation for drunk driving (multiple times), the Lost star not only drank while wearing an alcohol-monitoring bracelet, she lied about completing her community service requirements.

“She did file a document that said she completed community service on September 25th, but we obtained evidence that she was in New York that day,” said the LA City Attorney.

The judge sentenced Michelle to six months in jail, without the possibility of early release. (Michelle only served a day of a previous 60-day sentence because of overcrowding.)

Michelle will have to start her sentence on Christmas Eve. Aww. How sad. :( Almost as sad as losing a loved one to a drunk driving accident.

Almost.

Hopefully they’ll make her attend some AA meetings in jail. Then when she gets out Lindsay Lohan can take her to meetings.

Okay, This is Cute

Oh Thank Heavens! Gossip Girl Was Picked Up for a Full Season!

Okay, so I’ve watched a few episodes of this show, and it’s basically The O.C. if it happened on the Upper East Side. Like, almost verbatim.

But here’s what I don’t get:

Who is reading this girl’s blog?

And how has no one figured out who she is?

I mean, there’s a circle of like 100 people who give a shit about what’s happening in the lives of these high-school kids. It’s like if I had kept an “anonymous” blog about my high-school friends. Like 12 people would read it, and after about ten minutes they’d be like, “Oh, this is totally Evil Beet. She’s the only one who was at all four of those parties. Plus she’s the only one I know who still says ‘douchebag.’”

Anyway, for those of you who care — like my NYC roommies (SHOUT OUT, LADIES!!! I MISS YOU!!!) — it’s been picked up for a full season. Yay.

And You Thought Fear Factor Was Disturbing …

From Bogota, Colombia:

The hit game show “Nothing But the Truth” has been canceled after a contestant won $25,000 for admitting she hired someone to kill her husband.

Tuesday was the final day for the show, in which contestants attached to a lie-detector machine answered 21 increasingly invasive questions to win up to $50,000.

A U.S version called “Moment of the Truth” is still expected to be launched on Fox in the coming months, along with spin-offs in England, Australia, Germany, Italy and Spain, according to Howard Schultz, the Los Angeles-based creator of the show.

On the Colombian version, dollar-desperate contestants confessed everything from drug smuggling to homosexual prostitution before a studio audience packed with unsuspecting loved ones.

The episode that sealed the show’s fate was broadcast Oct. 2, when Rosa Maria Solano admitted she had hired a hit man to rub out her husband. “The crime couldn’t be carried out because the hit man tipped off my husband and he ran away forever — God save me,” said Solano after her revelation.

Facing negative public reaction and the threat of legal action for being an after-the-fact accessories to crime, Caracol Television pulled the plug.

Schultz, the creator of such reality TV hits as ABC’s “Extreme Makeover,” said he was unfamiliar with the controversial episode in Colombia, but did not fear it would slow the worldwide rollout.

“We’re very careful about the questions we ask,” he said, “and would never sanction any criminal behavior.”
