I have a confession to make. So I’ve been watching “Celebrity Apprentice.” No, that’s not the confession. I’ve seen every season of that show. I’m well aware of Brandi Glanville’s past with the whole Eddie Cibrian/Leann Rimes stuff. Just reading the entertainment sites that I do every day, it seemed like they were always bitching at each other for something. I’m aware of it, but don’t really know all the details behind it. I don’t watch any of the “Real Housewives” shows nor have I read either of her books, so I don’t know much about Brandi from that. Here’s my confession: I kinda like Brandi. I’m sure I’ll get flooded with emails about what a hot mess, alcoholic, pill popping, slut of a mom she is, but hey, let me just enjoy the Brandi I’m seeing on “Celebrity Apprentice.” That show does wonders for people looking to rehab their image, and Brandi has been somewhat normal on it so far, outside of one anxiety attack that was probably brought on by wine. All I’m saying is I’m kinda digging Brandi Glanville on “Celebrity Apprentice” and if this act is 180 degrees different from how she really is, so be it. Her face may melt off if ever exposed to copious amounts of sun, but hey, I think she’s funny. Just call me #TeamBrandi from now on. And speaking of “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills,” our new writer Nell Kalter’s recap from last night’s episode can be read right here. Check it out.
Lets talk about Jade a little more. My favorite person. Look, anyone that goes on this show or any reality show for that matter, has to know by now that your past is going to be exposed. So no one should feel sorry for Jade that all her Playboy stuff is getting out. The show knew it would, she knew it would, and it was probably all part of her plan. It’s not like Jade did Playboy right out of high school when she was young and dumb. She did it in Spring of 2013 right after she moved to LA. So yeah, being on this show is all about marketing for her and getting her brand out there. You know, because Jade has a cosmetics line that she’s opened called NaturallyJade.com. And for just $17.99, you can buy her lip gloss among other things. Look, I don’t know a ton about women’s accessories, but $17.99 for lip gloss seems totally ridiculous. I’m sure there are high end ones out there even more expensive, but for someone just opening a cosmetic line, is that a price point you want to be at? Whatever. Not my concern. I’m sure once Jade is eliminated and allowed to talk to the media she’ll try and convince everyone she was there for love. That’s where I have a problem with most of these people. Just admit you went on the show to further your career. When all the signs are there that you didn’t (especially in Jade’s case), you come across as completely fake and phony. Is it any surprise Jade just launched her cosmetic line right after the “Bachelor” starts airing? Of course not. Just admit it. We’d probably all like you better if you did.
As we know, Des & Chris got married this past weekend. They’re wedding photo is the cover on US Weekly today. But on Des’ blog, I thought she posted an interesting interview last week with with Cassie Scalettar, a major producer on the show who was the leads producer for 9 seasons. Not that Cassie shares anything earth shattering, but fans of the show like hearing about some behind the scenes stuff, and it’s a good read to hear all the places Cassie has been and what’s she’s experienced.
“Dr. Reality Steve” returns tomorrow, so get your emails in some time before the end of the day and I can guarantee you they’ll make tomorrow’s column.
Here are your deleted scenes from last week:
The girls did a mock rose ceremony, only instead they used a sunflower. Foreshadowing maybe? Whitney received the final one:
This is awesome. Carly has “carnie” hands:
