Bye bye, Bethenny Frankel, hello Cindy Barshop. Fellow Real Housewives Of New York star Ramona Singer confirmed to US Magazine today that Barshop, a mother of two and salon owner, will be the newest Housewife with a capital H.
So who exactly is this woman? Only the first name in rich-lady hair removal. (Sorry, Nads!) Barshop owns the Completely Bare salon franchise located in New York and Florida, which focuses on hair removal but also offers Vajazzling and Vatooing, so we’re hoping maybe there will be a crossover episode this season between RHONY and Kathy Griffin‘s show, since Kathy loves getting decorated down there. Remember what we said earlier about how once-great networks have started to dumb themselves down? Um. Bravo might be experiencing a vajazz-pocalypse.
In conducting our expert research on Barshop, we found this YouTube clip of her performing an above-the-waist VajazzleÃ‚Â (midriff-jazzle?) on a tv host while explaining some of the services her spa offers. We’re assuming this will be the first and last time we ever watch a video clip of her being calm, collected and unperturbed by Kelly Bensimon. Welcome to this crazy club, Cindy.
EDITOR’S NOTE: What you are about to watch might rank as one of my top 10 things I’ve ever seen of all time.
D’Atra Hicks is the star of the Madea’s Family Reunion stage show. She also likes to dabble in some light husband abusery. When the twain met on the televised musical theater stage known as “Divorce Court,” the musical fireworks began firing. While the husband hurled many an allegation D’Atra’s way (two apostrophes in one word is OK, right?), she chose to preach, sing, and hum her way through the entire proceeding to help deal with her admitted anger management issues.
It’s Sexual Chocolate meets Sunday Mornings on TV One meets “And I Am Telling You” meets an American Idol finale meets getting stung by a million bees wearing tiny gospel robes. It is the greatest sevenish minutes of your life. Ohhh yeahh… your honorrrr, yeahhhhh juuuuudge! (Actual lyrics from the following video.)
Our verdict? Get this woman on the stage of a Dreamgirls production immediately. Sorry, we meant: Guilty… of being amazing.
We totally want to make out with Trey Songz. Wait, did we just type that? Er, well it’s true. He’s sexy, sensual and ridiculously well dressed, and he’s the latest artist to dish the deets on his threads in our Head to Toe video. See that diamond bracelet Trey’s sporting? It’ll cost you a cool $1400 if you want it dangling from your wrist. Luckily we’ve got you covered if you’re looking for something similar but with a pricetag that’s easier on the wallet.
Trey showed up to VH1 headquarters in a crisp D&G jacket, Oliver Peoples shades and some Rocawear jeans. Classic, hip and perfect for lip-locking. Er – just ignore us and just check out his outfit breakdown in our video below; peep up close pics of his pieces – and looks for less – in our gallery below.
Fantasia is either over 70-years-old or unaware of her Disney history. In a recent interview with MSN TV, Fantasia was asked if she was named after the Disney movie she shares a name with. The Fantasia for Real star’s answer? “I was born before the Disney movie.” (She added that she was named after the fantasia crystal.) The movie Fantasia, of course, dates back to 1940 (it was the third feature-length Disney movie after Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs and Pinocchio). Instead of saying, “Oh, you must be confused by its many theatrical rereleases,” or, “Fantasia 2000 was not the first Fantasia, as the modifying date suggests,” the interviewer followed up the question with, “Were you shocked when the movie eventually came out?” Is this real life? Is it a fantasia? Just exactly what in the revisionist history hell is going on here?
It would seem that Fantasia was more dismayed than shocked when she ultimately caught wind of the movie:
“All the kids in school were really excited about going to the movie, but there was no talking in the movie. It was just music. When we got back, all the kids would say, ‘Your movie is boring.’ And I said, ‘It wasn’t my movie!’ I do have a best friend whose name is Santasia [sic], and I think that’s how we became best friends, because when we were in class together, the teacher used to say, ‘Santasia, be quiet!’ She was actually on the first season of Fantasia for Real.”
“Santasia” is actually spelled “Santezja.” Regardless, there’s no word if there’s a long-lost Disney movie with that name. We’ll just have to wait to be shocked by its release. [MSN TV]
Paul Scheer forwards along this amazing 20-second movie clip. Any explanation would detract from the awesome, just watch:
Apparently it’s from The Howling 3, one of the best-acted werewolf rape threequels in cinematic history, right next to These Werewolves Be Rapin’ Everybody Out Here, starring Daniel Day-Lewis as Antoine.
As always, I’ll be thanking the internet by cramming a rolled-up 20 into my cd drive. You earned it, buddy!
Roberts already has three children with husband Danny Moder, but a friend explains that she’d like to have more. “Julia has wanted more children for years. But her past pregnancies were fraught with complications and she was forced into an extended hospital stay right before she had her twins. After all she has been through, she realizes that adoption is perhaps the best way forward.” Julia also announced recently that she practices the Hindu faith ever since filming and “has a special affinity with India and has contacts exploring the possibilities,” the friend added.
We were first inclined to believe Jashley was just a rumor. But then this popped up: photographic evidence of Ashley Greene and Joe Jonas holding hands in broad daylight, getting coffee like a normal couple. And as we were typing we heard the mirror-like shattering of a million little hearts (including our own), especially after we noticed his fingers were totally ring-free. Yes, we’re talking about rings of the pure variety.
Seriously, everyone was at the premiere for The Social Network in New York last night. Friends. Friends of friends. People outside The Social Network‘s social network. If we were Facebook friends with Justin Timberlake, we’re sure his status would have read Justin Timberlake is…wondering who all these people are?
Anyone who is anyone was at the Cinema Society’s screening of the film (the film which has successfully ruined Radiohead‘s “Creep” for us, thankyouverymuch), stars like JT and Jesse Eisenberg, the film’s writer Aaron Sorkin and plenty of total randoms like Adrien Brody, Gabourey Sidibe and Lance Bass. It really is like using a Friend Finder to discover how all these random people are connected even though you never knew they knew each other. For a look at who attended, check out our gallery below. But don’t you dare try to un-tag yourself, Timberlake.
