The Real Housewives of New York City: You Want to What Me in the Where?

Only The Real Housewives of New York City can throw a Christmas party that leaves guests asking “You Want to What Me in the Where?”  We recap the entire foul-mouthed affair in our THG +/- review.

Before we get to the dirty Santa’s helpers, let’s recap Sonja’s logo meetings. She meets up again with Heather and her crew but adds Ramona to the mix. 

Sonja had to know this was going to get messy. What was she thinking throwing these two together? Minus 10.  

Sonja's Logo Meeting

Minus 9 to Heather and her crew as they try to push their point of view and are not always listening.  I like the silhouette of the lady in the logo and the font could be sexier.  Adding the naked guy just seems silly.

Ramona’s trying to back up Sonja’s point of view but Sonja can be so wishy washy it’s hard to tell what she really thinks.  One moment she likes what they’re showing. The next she doesn’t. Even I’m getting confused.

Of course for the next meeting Heather brings on LuAnn. Oh, I’m sure that will straighten things out.  How many Housewives does it take to agree on a photo shoot?  In the end they agree on one thing. Ramona won’t be there.  Wait until she hears about that.

Then it’s off to dinner where the who has slept with Harry joke has really gotten old.  Minus 8.  Although we do finally get to meet the man in question.  Eh.  I’m not seeing the appeal.  Maybe it’s the bank account.

Ramona and Mario decide to share/show off their $1,400 bottle of wine at dinner where Mario confronts Jacques about his earlier wine game at Ramona’s expense.  Plus 13.  Whether you’re a Ramona fan or not, I applaud Mario for sticking up for his wife. 

As for LuAnn and Jacques, they still maintain they weren’t trying to make fun of Ramona and it was all in fun. Is anyone buying that?

Of course the moment the subject comes up LuAnn scurries off to the restroom to hide.  Coward. Minus 7.

But later LuAnn brings the subject up again to Ramona. Is she just afraid to talk about it in front of Mario? Does she really think Ramona’s going to say don’t worry about it?  She should consider herself lucky Ramona’s willing to drop it and doesn’t take a dive off the deep end.  Plus 5.

LuAnn’s conversation with Sonja is just uncomfortable.  It really sounds like she’s saying she’s only having a baby because Jacques wants one.  Yikes!  Minus 12.  Not to preach Sonja’s gloom and doom but what if things don’t work out? LuAnn’s the one who will be raising this child and I’m not sure Jaques’ child support will be enough to employ a full time nanny.

LuAnn Cringes

Later, Sonja can’t keep her worries to herself.  How much has she had to drink?  If Jacques wasn’t thinking about running before, he might be now!  But I think Ramona’s right.  Sonja’s unhappy and watching her this drunk is just sad.

Carole barely has any screen time this week and what little she has is so boring it’s really not worth mentioning.  Minus 5.

Now on to LuAnn’s Holiday party. It’s a fundraiser where guests donate coats for the homeless. Certainly a good cause for the Countess. Plus 10.

LuAnn wants the music to be edgy. Well ll it’s a little more than edgy.  It ran right off the cliff.  Perhaps Santa’s helpers showing up with Mohawks and cigarettes hanging out of their mouths should have been a sign of things to come.

When the ladies got up to sing Jingle Bells, not even I could have imagined what came next.  The lead singer started up the band and began singing…well more like screaming, “i want to f**k you up the a**.”  Over and over and over again.  Minus 15 because if that doesn’t say Merry Christmas from the Countess, I don’t know what does.

Episode total = -38               Season total = -243

Justin Bieber Offends Canadian Aboriginals; Should He Apologize?

What was intended to be a joke by Justin Bieber has landed the singer in a bit of hot water.

In an interview with Rolling Stone – inside the same issue that contains sex advice from the young star – Bieber is asked about his nationality and responds:

“I’m actually part Indian. I think Inuit or something? I’m enough percent that in Canada, I can get free gas.”

Harmless, right? Not to everyone…

The Biebs on Stage

The Congress of Aboriginal Peoples has chimed and the group is unhappy with the implication behind Justin’s words.

“These kinds of remarks are another example of what Aboriginal Peoples in Canada struggle with every day,” says the organization in a statement. “These kinds of remarks are another example of what Aboriginal peoples in Canada struggle with every day. It promotes the misconception that we are somehow getting a free ride. This simply is not the case and we are concerned that many people may believe what he said.”

Honestly, many people likely don’t even understand what Bieber said.

Still, he clearly did offend some people. Should Justin apologize?

Taran Noah Smith, Home Improvement Kid, Arrested For DUI and Drug Possession

Taran Noah Smith, one of Tim Allen’s kids on Home Improvement, was arrested early this morning for alleged DUI and drug possession, according to TMZ.

Hashish, to be specific. Or hash as the kids call it.

The now-27-year-old Smith was arrested in L.A. County around 1:00 a.m., and police believe he was under the influence of marijuana at the time of his arrest.

An alleged stash of hash (a type of weed) was found.

Smith, best known for his role as little Mark Taylor, is still in custody and was booked for the DUI and the drug possession, which is a felony. Not good.

He was allegedly behind the wheel of his ’98 silver Honda Accord, which was parked at an angle in front of a fire hydrant when an officer investigated.

The police officer smelled a “strong odor” of weed and believed Smith was under the influence. He was brought in and booked shortly thereafter.

Elisabetta Canalis and Steve-O: New Couple Alert (WTH)!?

Steve-O and Elisabetta Canalis are totally dating. Don’t ask us how the heck that happened, but they are dating and not shy about flaunting it in public. At all.

Some people might say that going from George Clooney to one of the dudes from Jackass constitutes a step down for the Italian model and DWTS contestant.

Those people would be 100 percent correct, but hey. Beauty is only skin deep, right? Maybe Steve-O can please her in ways George never, ever could.

LOL. Sorry. We tried Steve.

Steve-O and Elisabetta Canalis

Steve-O, yeah! Look at that Jackass land Elisabetta Canalis!

Clooney, meanwhile, has moved on from Canalis with Stacy Keibler. Much more of a lateral move if not slightly upward. The WWE alum cleans up so well.

Fran Drescher: I Was Abducted, Probed by Aliens!

Who would have guessed that the strangest thing about actress Fran Drescher would NOT be her voice?

In an interview with The Huffington Post late this week, the former star of The Nanny said she and ex-husband Peter Marc Jacobson “both saw [aliens] before we know each other.”

“I think that somehow we were programmed to meet,” she said. “We both have this scar. It’s the exact same scar on the exact same spot.”

Jacobson, of course, says Drescher’s scar is due to an accident that involved a drill bit or a hot cup of water, not extraterrestrials.

But the actress is adamant: “That’s what the aliens programmed us to think,” she says. “But really, that’s where the chip is.”

The Bachelor Ratings: Climbing Fast!

Ben Flajnik’s season of The Bachelor is coming on strong after a slow ratings start.

The season launched to franchise-low ratings, but things are looking up after a steady dose of bikini skiing, cat fights and surprising, contrived plot twists.

Averaging 8.2 million overall viewers, and a 2.7 rating among 18-to-49-year-olds, last night’s episode marked a season high for the ABC guilty pleasure.

Four episodes in, Ben Flajnik‘s Bachelor is fast approaching Brad Womack’s season a year ago. Just wait until we get to the good stuff a few weeks from now.

How will it end? Read The Bachelor spoilers here for insight on how we believe the 16th season plays out … or watch in video form below, if you dare.

REPEAT: Mega-spoiler alert for the link above and video below!

The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Season Finale: Dramatic? Or a Dud?

The season started with a suicide and ended with a wedding.

In between, we saw just how low Taylor Armstrong would sink; watched the struggles of Kyle Richards and an eventually rehab-bound Kim; and slogged through Lisa Vanderpump planning her daughter’s big day, which came to fruition last night.

Pandora Gets Married!

But was this is a worthwhile payoff? Did anyone really care about Pandora’s wedding, especially when it shoved Kim and Taylor so far off to the sideline?

Yes, the finale concluded with the women at Kyle’s house, sort of talking about Russell Armstrong’s passing, but even then Pandora’s wedding remained a topic of conversation. Was the episode a letdown?

What did you think of this conclusion to season two?

Bill O’Reilly on the Kardashians: All That’s Wrong with America!

Great. Thanks a lot, Khloe, Kourtney and Kim Kardashian. You’ve forced us to side with Bill O’Reilly.

On his Fox News program last night, the host sat down with Barbara Walters and grilled her over her ridiculous Most Fascinating People of 2011 list, which includes Simon Cowell, Derek Jeter, Pippa Middleton… and the Kardashians.

Why are we “lionizing” that family, O’Reilly asked, arguing they represent “all that’s wrong with America” because they have “no talent,” they make millions and “all they do is sit around and whine.” Anyone care to disagree? Watch the exchange now:

Robert Powell on Mariah Yeater Baby Accusations: She Lied!

As the whole celebrity gossip world knows by now, Mariah Yeater has accused Justin Bieber of fathering her three-month old son.

And while the scandal has not made much news recently – Yeater’s lawyer asked Bieber’s camp for a new DNA test in late November, and there’s been no movement on either side since – Robert Powell has come forward and said he knows why Yeater originally filed a paternity suit against the singer. It’s simple:

“She lied.”

Powell, who insists he’s the proper baby daddy, recently spoke to Rumor Fix while serving time behind bars on charges of burglary and drug possession.

“We were both homeless and living in Oceanside and Mariah was trying to make some quick money,” Powell claims. “She just picked him because she thought he was famous and all and thought she could get a lot of money by telling the magazine Justin was the father. She just saw him as an opportunity to make a lot of money.”

$50,000, Powell says. That’s the amount she was hoping Justin would settle for.

But Yeater underestimated Bieber, who fought against the allegations from day one and has done all he can to prove his innocence.

Powell adds that he still loves Yeater, and he has sympathy for the Biebs.

“All I want is to be with my son, that’s all I care about. She can take all her money, I just want my son. And man, on the real, I feel sorry for Justin Bieber. He’s just a little kid, man. He don’t need to be going through all this drama. He got a career and sh*t to focus on. I feel sorry for the dude.”

Thanks, Rob. But Justin doesn’t need your pity. He’s doing just fine on his own, thank you very much!

Fan Helps 76ers on Twitter, Earns Job With Team

Two NBA fans took it upon themselves to help out their favorite team on Twitter last week, only to receive a legally threatening email from the Philadelphia 76ers.

By the end of the ordeal, though, the fans ended up with box seats to the Philadelphia 76ers’ home opener, season tickets … and a job with the team for one.

How in the world did that happen?

76ers Logo

The 76ers launched a fan voting contest last week to choose a new team mascot between three finalists. But the team failed to get the nominees on social media.

Helpfully, Jerry Rizzo, 23, and friend Hunter Coleman, 22, went ahead and registered Twitter accounts for two finalists, @PhilEMoose and @BFranklinDogg.

They began tweeting from the accounts trying to help promote the contest.

On Friday, however, they received an official email requesting that they hand over the accounts, “pleasantly without the use of lawyers or anything like that.”

Rizzo, a communications graduate and self-described “social media sponge,” gave up the accounts in exchange for box seats and tickets … but it gets better.

Saturday, 76ers CEO Adam Aron left Rizzo a voicemail asking Rizzo to call him back. He set up an interview that ultimately led to him being offered a job.

In the end, he was rewarded for his entrepreneurial sprit with a full-time social media position with the team – “about as close as it gets” to the perfect gig.
