Daily Links – 11/10

So I mentioned the other day that I’ll be in NY Thanksgiving weekend for a wedding. I know it’s a holiday weekend and people may be out of town, but I was thinking of possibly having a get together in New York on Sat. night the 28th. Not sure of the location yet or if I can pull this off, but if I were able to, and you happen to be reading today’s post, email me today and let me know if you’d be interested in coming. Like I said, this is still in its early stages even though we’re only 18 days away, but if there are people that would be interested in showing up, let me know. It’s something I thought about because outside of my birthday last year in Vegas (which might happen again next year), I don’t get a chance much to visit other cities and meet up with fans. New York is a big city, and judging by my numbers, it’s where the biggest collection of my readers comes from. Naturally being the biggest city, it’s probably going to have the most amount of readers. It’s something I thought about over the weekend so figured I’d throw it out there and see who’d be interested in meeting up. Let me know if you’re interested. Email address is at the bottom of the column. Hopefully we can put something together.

-As I tweeted last night once the story hit, for all the Josh & Andi fans who’d emailed me the last week thinking they were both in LA to get back together – not quite. Andi was there for some Hulu event, and now we know why Josh is going to be in LA for the next month. He’s filming a reality show for E! called “Famously Single.” 8 single “celebrities” live in an LA loft, talk about their public breakups, and get help from professionals about why they can’t hold a relationship. Wonderful. Translation: this will be Josh’s response to Andi’s book coming out in February that will not have the nicest things to say about their relationship.

-Nell Kalter is back with yourVanderpump Rules recap. This will be a staple every Tuesday until this show goes off the air, which will probably be never. And considering she also covers RHOBC and RHOC, basically Nell will be writing until the end of time for this site. Check it out.

-An executive producer from the “West Wing” gave his thoughts on the world of reality TV, and basically echoed everything that I’ve said about the genre for a long time. There’s nothing “real” about it, and it shouldn’t even be called “reality TV.” I remember a while back Mark Burnett said in an interview even he wouldn’t call it “reality TV,” and he’s easily the most successful reality TV producer out there. He says to call it “unscripted drama.” This former “West Wing” producer says, nah, you can call it scripted. Nothing we haven’t heard for years. Just more proof at how fake it is.

-Any of you who frequent my writing know how much I love behind-the-scenes stuff regarding my favorite shows. I’m much, much, MUCH more interested in the the how/why/where backstories of shows than the finished product. That’s what makes this interview with former “Lost” co-executive producer Damon Lindelof so fascinating. It’s very long, but well worth the read. Amazing to hear his thought process before the first episode even aired and how he became depressed when the show became a hit. If you’re a fan of “Lost,” take the time to read this Q&A which happened this past weekend at my alma mater of all places, Loyola Marymount University.

-Gavin Rossdale is still wearing his wedding ring, even though he’s divorced and his ex-wife is now currently banging Blake Shelton. Damn. Does he hold vigils every night in honor of Gwen too? Gavin, I don’t know how to break this to you, but you’re divorced. Probably means you can take off the ring now. Just sayin’.

-I posted the story yesterday of Vivica A. Fox throwing shade at 50 Cent, insinuating that he was gay, during a “Watch What Happens Live” appearance on Sunday night. She came out yesterday and apologized, but only to Soulja Boy, but not 50 Cent. Which of course then made Fiddy throw more shade her way regarding their past relationship. I mean, considering we’ve already heard stories of salad tossing, I can only imagine the freaky sh** both of these two have on each other.

-Khloe went out with her boyfriend James Harden this past Saturday night after the Rockets were in town to play the Clippers. All while Lamar sits in a hospital bed and wonders why he ever got involved in this family’s drama. And can we at least get some sort of explanation as to why Khloe and Lamar are still technically married? Anything would be great at this point. Makes zero sense, but then again, nothing the Kardashians do really does. Just dump her ass, James. She’ll find another NBA player in a week.

-There is Blake Shelton news that doesn’t involve Gwen Stefani. He’s going to host, the Nickelodeon Kids Choice Awards this year. Sweet. At what point during this hosting gig will he inevitably bring Gwen up on stage and they kiss while getting slimed? The odds of that happening are currently running about 1/20 in Vegas. If Blake didn’t bring out Gwen, that would be the shocker.

-Selena Gomez may have quite possibly moved on from the Biebs. One can only hope. She was seen holding hands with rumored new boyfriend, Samuel Krost. It’s quite possible that whoever this Samuel Krost is might be my new favorite person. I don’t know a thing about the guy, but as long as he can keep Selena away from the Bieb show, I’m fine with that. I know, I know. Biebs went on “Ellen” and gave the “you never say never” to a possible reconciliation with Selena, but how about we just say “never” with you? Is that too much to ask? It ain’t gonna happen kids. Just move on. And isn’t Justin showing his penis to other chicks in Bora Bora, anyway?

-Speaking of penises, Lorena Bobbit joined Steve Harvey and talked about that time when, you know, she lopped off her husband’s with a knife. So 22 years later we get to hear the story behind this? And women in the audience applauded her? You’re disgusting. Domestic violence sucks. Both ways. So ladies in the audience at the Steve Harvey Show, how about you sit down and stop applauding a woman who basically did the same thing that we get upset about when a husband commits assault against his wife. I’m not asking much.

-Uh oh. Blake & Gwen. Again. Last night was the first live “Voice” episode since both of them announced they were dating, and apparently there was flirting going on. I didn’t see the show so I don’t know, but this talk about “well maybe they’ll move their chairs next to each other now” is about the stupidest thing I’ve ever heard. Why? For what? She needs to sit one seat closer because now they’re an item? I think they’ll be fine. Hell, Blake and Adam have had a bromance for the longest time and they sit the farthest apart. I’m sure Gwen doesn’t need to sit close enough to hold the guy’s hand.

-Pam Anderson announced on Instagram yesterday via a nude picture that she was cured of Hepatitis C. That is awesome. Congrats Pam. If this is the way she chooses to celebrate being cured of all diseases, I’m all for it. So what do we get if she announces she’s no longer got the herp? Another sex tape? You do you, Pam. The more diseases you overcome, the better. Make a collage for us.

-And finally, during the Cowboys/Eagles game this past Sunday night, what was thought to be a fight between a Cowboys and an Eagles fan was actually a fight between two Eagles fans – that were brothers. And one cold cocked the other one right in the kisser. Ahhhh, the city of Brotherly Love.

    A friend of mine was on a “Reality” House flipping show. She said she had already bought the house before she was even confirmed to be on the show. They then paraded her through two other houses she had no interest in, before magically picking the house she had already bought. Then they put a ton of pressure on her to get everything fixed up & the house sold in 30 days. That sent the whole process into chaos, which was good for filming & eventually caused her to barely break even (since they had no choice but to hire a lot of people to do work they would normally have done themselves).

    Then she said, when it aired, there were lots of comments taken out of context & a bunch of other silliness. The end product basically told a story completely unrelated to what had actually happened.

    Bottom line: she found the whole thing laughable. But since it was on HGTV, hardly anyone watched anyway.

    Yes, actually there was an article in our paper about a local couple–close to the same scenario. They had already bought their house. I don’t think they even used that one onTV. They used their realtor’s house! Show must not care, because it was all out there– photos and all.

    Yeah to be on House Hunters you already have to be under contract to buy a house, so its all just for the cameras when you check out 2 other houses.

    I was an extra on the “reality show” Jerseylicious 3 times, and was sent all the notices whenever they filmed something since I live nearby, and the cast definitely had general lines they were required to say (constantly cutting and reshooting when one was missed), but they also filmed all the club/party scenes at like 1pm on a Tuesday so they could rent out the whole space, so it was all super super fake.
