So I mentioned in tweets this week I had information on Jef and Arie in relation to Sean’s season. Lets start with Arie. First, I can tell you I’m hearing that Arie is in LA today filming a segment at the mansion with Sean. I have no idea what it is since, well, it hasn’t even filmed yet. I’m good, but I’m not that good. But judging by season’s past, I’m sure it’s just a way for them to get Arie back on TV like he’s wanted, give his lunatic fans a reason to breathe again, and will probably be shown in the first episode during Sean’s introduction. This means Arie will not be appearing on the first episode to help Sean pick out women, like they’ve done in the past. It’s a taped piece being done today at the mansion, and if I find out what it actually is, I’ll let you know. Should be riveting considering Arie and Sean aren’t even that close of friends. I mean, I get why ABC is doing it, I just don’t understand what value it could possibly add.
Anyway, as you can see on the press release, Arie initially committed to attending the NY charity event on Sunday, but backed out. Yes, he has this thing he has to tape today at the mansion, and yes, I do hear he’s having a birthday party celebration Saturday night in Arizona. That’s great and all, but pretty shi**y to commit to an event like this then cancel a week beforehand. Here’s the kicker: Arie is going to be in attendance at the DWTS premiere Monday night. Why, you ask? Well, some of you may have seen he attended an event last week in LA where he got quite cozy in photo ops with Karina Smirnoff. That wasn’t by coincidence. Lets just say that after the DWTS premiere tapes Monday, Arie will be involved in that “scene” for the night. You can mark my words that you will see plenty of photos that night of Arie and Karina together. Nice to see that Arie can blow off an event he committed to, only to be at the DWTS premiere the next night and hob knobbing with Karina Smirnoff to keep his name out there. Interesting. Bad career move, dude. In case you didn’t know, Karina has broken off her last two engagements, and is pretty much the last celeb dancer on that show you want to be associated with. Hope it’s worth it. And save your hate emails and tweets Arie crazies. I don’t care. If you can read between the lines, even you should be able to clearly see what’s happening here. Not my fault if you don’t want to accept it.
As for what ties Jef Holm has to Sean’s season? Well, come to find out that the woman behind that hairdo of his will be one of Sean’s girls. Yes, Jef’s hairstylist back in Utah is on the show. Gee, I wonder how she made the show? Here she is:
3. Diana Weeks Willardson: Early 30’s, Utah, divorced, mother of two (6 and 4), owns Shag Salon in Sandy, Utah. Has four sisters – Joanna, Melani, Lori, and Tami – three of them married with kids, and each of them have removed every picture of Diana from their respective Facebook pages, outside of a couple, but they’re all old. Here are the latest ones:
I’ll just say this. I’m sure Diana is a fine upstanding citizen. I’m sure she’s a great mother, a wonderful aunt, and the Willardson clan seems like a great group of people. However, I’m here to speak the truth. Diana is Mormon. And I’m telling you, there is no chance Sean is going to pick someone who’s Mormon. My guess is Diana will not last long on this show. Sorry. But hey, thanks for trying. UPDATE: Come to find out that Diana is NOT Mormon. Well there you go. She’s back in the game!
And finally, last week I caught the last 10 minutes or so of Natalie Getz’ video blog that had special guests Craig Robinson (my brother), Rachel Truehart, and Donna Zitelli. Donna promoted one of her “dancing” videos on YouTube that I had never heard of before, so I decided to check it out. Gulp.
I’d say that takes talent if you ask me. Or something like that.
