I have one thought when I watch this show. Miami is gorgeous. Unfortunately, I can’t say the same about the women, at least not after you spend some time with them.
After last week’s debacle at Mynt, Romain and Joanna need to talk. He’s fed up, with reason. When Joanna plays it off like it was only because she was drunk, Romain shoots back “Maybe you’re drunk every day.” Minus 12. That’s a big problem.

The hot mess initially told them she was NOT driving the Porsche that she totaled when she slammed into a semi on the Pacific Coast Highway north of L.A.

Lindsay told police she was a passenger in the Porsche and her assistant was driving. However, the assistant said that Lohan was behind the wheel.

Season two American Idol castoff Frenchie Davis has found redemption on The Voice this spring, even if that’s not a word she feels is appropriate.
Frenchie doesn’t like the word redemption because, she says, she has nothing to redeem herself for. But it’s hard not to look at her story that way.
As an American Idol hopeful, she got the boot for having posed for sexy photos. That left a bad taste in her mouth, as she wasn’t even voted off.
Last night, she showed millions of viewers what they missed out on, bringing down the house with David Guetta’s “When Love Takes Over” …More >

Justin Bieber may have flipped off a photographer this week, but we know he’s a good guy.
A couple recent cases in point: for his 17th birthday, the singer asked fans to help provide clean drinking water to third world countries.

Now 59, the ghoul-loving icon got her break on the small Los Angeles TV station KHJ in 1981, hosting a late-night showcase of truly bad horror films. With her shock of [fake] black hair, mountainous cleavage and sharp tongue she was an instant hit, and the work’s been coming in ever since.
