It’s hard to believe that it’s been 10 years since Laguna Beach: The Real Orange County first premiered on MTV. What’s crazier to think about is that America’s Next Top Model has been on air for 21 cycles, The Real Housewives franchise has expanded from Orange County to six other cities in the U.S. alone, and New York no longer refers to the city or state. Over the past decade, these reality shows have produced a number of stars who have built a career around being on reality TV. Just look at Bethenny Frankel, who first got started on The Apprentice: Martha Stewart before becoming a household name on The Real Housewives of New York.
As the youngest member of the Kardashian-Jenner clan, Kylie Jenner is the the latest to find her way into controversy after a wild birthday celebration. Since she’s grown up watching her famous family, she has the luxury of learning from their experiences (mistakes and all). The reality TV princess turned 17 last week, which means she’s one year closer to becoming a full-fledged adult or star in her own spin-off. In between VIP treatment and partying, have her older siblings passed along any words of wisdom to their baby sister?
How will Transformers: Age of Extinction do at the box office? Is Sarah Jessica Parker returning to TV? Did Brody Jenner used to date his brother Brandon‘s wife?
On Saturday Kanye West officially becomes a Kardashian. It’s a moment that every young boy always dreams about, right?
Love is a battlefield, and 2012 was not immune the heart’s harsh ways. Celebrity relationships had a tough go at things this year and saw a record number of sad splits (Amy Poehler and Will Arnett), shocking divorces (Heidi Klum and Seal) and close-call almost breakups (Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson). But 2012 also saw a few reconciliations (Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez), giving us hope for 2013. Browse through our gallery of the 20 biggest breakups of 2012 and tell us which split was the most devastating to watch.
It’s January, the weather’s finally getting cold, and, sadly, some hearts are even colder. There are days when it’s too depressing to deliver celebrity breakup and divorce news, so we’re ripping off the Band-aid and giving it to you all in one shot.
» First, you might consider this happy news, if you’re Team Vanessa. Kobe Bryant’s soon-to-be-ex is getting $75 million in the divorce settlement, half of the NBA star’s estimated assets, according to TMZ. That includes all three of their houses in the Newport Beach area.
» Kenny G’s wife of 20 years, Lyndie Benson-Gorelick, filed for separation from the smooth-jazz sax-player, E! Online reports. The couple has two sons, Max, 18, and Noah, 14.
» Eva Longoria’s previous attempts to remove her “Nine” tattoo tribute to ex husband Tony Parker have been unsuccessful, so she’s going to amazingly named tat-erasing expert Dr. Tatoff, per TMZ.
» And contrary to rumors of their split, Avril Lavigne and Brody Jenner tweeted their love for each other: “It really upsets me to read all the FALSE!! stories. Avril has always been there for me and is the closest person to my heart. I love her,” Brody wrote on Tuesday, to which Avril replied, “luv u 2.” Still, those could also be interpreted as “just friends” declarations too.
Now, let’s get on with a happier Friday!

Oh no, say it isn’t so! Avril LavigneÂ and boyfriend Brody Jenner have broken up. They had been dating for almost two years, but somehow it seemed longer, right? Maybe the tattoos add years. Apparently, the culprit was a lack of balance between their careers and their relationship. A source told Us Weekly, “Every time he wanted to come back and take meetings to get his career back in order, she would make him go to Asia and Europe.” That’s not the worst thing in the world, according to us, but the sources say that it made Brody feel stifled.
Another source also revealed, “He hasn’t worked and he wants to. They were both unhappy because he wants to have his career, she wants him to stay with her.” But, this isn’t set in stone, the chatty source adds. “There is always a chance they will get back together. Brody is trying to set the ground rules and wants to be able to work. They have to find a balance.” That’s the word on the street. We wish them both luck with whatever they decide to do.
And now a word from the guy who puts the “bro” in Brody. Honorary Kardashian Brody Jenner has been hanging ten on an Indonesian surf trip for the past few days, but apparently he needs a little more practice. The reality star tweeted a truly nasty pic of his banged up foot following a heavy duty wipe-out today. We’re not sure why he wanted to broadcast the fact that he sorta sucks at surfing, but bros all over the world air-drum-solo’ed to a Dispatch song in approval. Ã‚Â “One of the sickest waves of my life,” Brody gushed via Twitter, “No surfing today. My foot is DESTROYED! Check it!”Ã‚Â He was taken to a local hospital specializing in rad injuries, where he was diagnosed with a cut foot and a case of Extremeocity. His foot will heal, but sadly heÃ‚Â is expected to remain somewhat of a douche for the rest of his life. Stay strong, brah.
Avril Lavigne and Brody Jenner already have matching tattoos, but Avril is a modern woman who doesn’t need to share everything with her boyfriend, which is why she got a brand new tattoo this weekend. What is it of? In Avril’s words “Its a…… Safety pin bitches!!!!!”
In other words, Avril Lavigne’s neck=our punk high school backpack. That Korn patch had to stay on somehow.
The release party for Avril Lavigne‘s new record Goodbye Lullabye was last night, and you know what that means…Kardashian photo ops! Avril is one degree of separation away from all things Kardashian since she’s dating step-Dash Brody Jenner, so of course her sister-in-law-by-dating, Kim, was in attendance. And actually, if you look closely at the photos, Kim appears to barely move from her position all night long. Hers was one of many awkward poses during the party which looked like it took place in someone’s weird, leathery rec room where everyone was standing on couches. Check out our gallery for proof.
