A couple of corrections and an update from yesterday’s post thanks to some readers. Literally not 10 minutes after yesterday’s column went up, I was corrected on these two things: 1) I received a few emails saying that Bob Guiney’s season had identical twins as contestants. Sure enough after a Google search, I realized he did. Samantha and Leona, and they were both eliminated on the first night. I corrected it on Twitter and in the column. Damn. I sincerely apologize for not remembering something that happened ten years ago on the first night of season four. 2) I received a tweet that I had written Julianne Moore instead of Julianne Hough in the “Grease: Live” story yesterday, to which I tweeted back and changed it. So thanks to those for informing me of those minor gaffes yesterday. Julianne Moore? Duh. Good one Steve. And one other minor correction about Emily and Haley from yesterday. They were waitresses at Marquee at the Cosmopolitan, not Planet Hollywood. In case anyone really cares about what these two did before their appearance on this show. And a little fun fact I learned: Emily is older by 20 minutes and Haley almost had a different birthday because she was born close to midnight. Go impress your friends with that one.
As for filming yesterday, if you followed my tweets and re-tweets from late last night, they filmed a group date somewhere on USC’s campus yesterday, and the group date after party was at the Hotel Intercontinental in Culver City, CA. My old stomping grounds.
The Bachelor is filming a group date at USC tonight.

As for “US Weekly” coming out yesterday with the story that “they’ve confirmed” Becca and Amber will on Ben’s season, it’s starting to become laughable. Of course they didn’t reference the fact I gave this information out over a week ago, but honestly, I kinda actually love it when “US Weekly” does this. It just proves that they break nothing when it comes to this show, and by blatantly not crediting this site, it shows their lack of professionalism. They know what I’m reporting. Hell, I’ve had some of their writers contact me in the past wanting to work with me and the site and I said, “No thanks.” Especially after one of their writers did me wrong in a major way back during Ali’s season. So if that’s why they don’t credit me, shows their level of professionalism. The more they keep “breaking” stories that have already been broken on this site weeks and months ahead of time, the worse they look. Keep it comin’ US Weekly, and I’ll keep pointing it out. You’re embarrassing yourselves.
-So this was rather interesting. Chris Harrison did an interview for a local paper where he grew up in Lake Highlands, Texas. Some funny old pics of him in it. However, in one of the questions, he gets all pissy about a piece that “D Magazine” ran on him during his book deal. So I went searching for that piece and found it here. Am I missing something? What did that author say that was so bad in that piece that he’s still bitter about it? The irony in all this? That same “D Magazine” author who wrote the piece who has Chris’ panties in a bunch did a piece on me over 4 ½ years ago that was fine. Touchy, touchy Chris.
-So now not only do we get the 1 hr polygraph test with Tori Spelling tmrw night after the “Beverly Hills, 90210” movie on “Lifetime,” but now come to find out she had sex with another unnamed co-star? Oh this will be good. We’ve ruled out Steve, so it’s either Brandon or Dylan. My guess would be Brandon. And I have nothing to base that on other than the fact that Brandon seems more her type. I need to make sure my DVR is set to record this thing.
-The least popular of the three Playboy bunnies that lived with Hef, Bridget Marquardt, is engaged to be married. Not to Hef of course, but some other dude. Because as we all know, all three of those girls ditched Hef once their contracts were up for pretending to like an old man who walked around in a robe all day. I’ve told this story before, but it’s worth mentioning again. Back in I believe 2001 when I was working in radio, we broadcasted every Monday night for “Monday Night Football” at Hooters on 3rd St. Promenade in Santa Monica. And there was one waitress who worked every Monday that roller skated around delivering food. She was the only roller skating waitress there, and she was there every Monday. Years later come to find out that roller skating waitress was Holly Madison.
-Scott Disick was seen partying it up with some 18 year old while in NY. Yeah? And? Scott was doing this while he married basically every weekend. How is this news? What, because he’s single now? Uhhhhh, it never stopped him while he was married so I’m not sure why it’s a story now. Scott Disick hooking up with an 18 year old is about as Scott Disick as Scott Disick can get.
-“Survivor” castoff Shirin did her conference call with the media yesterday and, once again, we find out about something major that happened on the episode which was never shown. Well, two things actually. 1. She knew she was going home because Varner found out she was targeting him. 2. On her way to getting her torch snuffed, she told the whole tribe that Terry had an idol to keep her alliance of Kelly and Spencer strong (Terry doesn’t have one). I know it’s only an hour show and they can’t possibly show us everything, but that’s two weeks in a row they’re leaving major storylines on the editing room floor.
-The latest rumors have Kate Hudson and Nick Jonas secretly dating. Don’t get me wrong, I think Kate Hudson is extremely attractive, but I also thought she was older than 36. Why did I think she was in her mid 40’s and just looked really good for her age? Oh well. Have fun with your boy toy for the next few months before the inevitable “our schedules just didn’t match up” break-up statement.
-The 41st season of “Saturday Night Live” premieres tomorrow night with Miley Cyrus as the host and musical guest. Word coming down that Hillary Clinton will be appearing, probably to mock herself. I mean, you basically have to if you’re a politician and you go on that show. If you don’t, it makes you look worse. Kate McKinnon’s impression is the best Hillary they’ve ever had, and that’s spanning over 20 years of different people impersonating her.
-Remember last year around this time how many “Daily Links” columns had stories about Courtney Stodden in them? I felt like there was one a day. Well in the two weeks I’ve been doing this again, we’ve had none. Until today. Courtney Stodden now says she wants to renew her vows with creepy older husband Doug Hutchinson, and do it bigger and better than their original marriage which took place next to a gas station. When they got married he was 51, she was 16. Let that sink in. Not to mention how much TV gold they were on “Couples Therapy” a few seasons ago. Can I attend their wedding vow renewal?
-Here’s a disturbing story. I didn’t even know this was a disorder. People who are 100% healthy but wish to be disabled? This woman purposely poured drain cleaner in her eyes so she could become blind. Whatever floats your boat I guess. My issue in this story is that she had her psychologist help her out. Wait, huh? And this doctor still has a license? I suggest someone might want to look into this a little bit deeper and make sure that quack isn’t practicing anymore. There are some true lunatics in this world.
-And finally, is it possible to come up with four words more scary than “Hulk Hogan sex tape?” I didn’t think so. Apparently his sex tape will be shown to selective jurors and council during his ongoing trial. For some reason, I thought this thing already leaked a while back? I remember seeing still photos of Hulk banging his best friend’s wife and it being caught on tape. Whatever the case, I’m going to try and go back and see if I can never remember viewing those pictures. Maybe I’ll pour drain cleaner in my eyes.
