May they go forth and make beautiful blonde hipster babies!
It’s truly hard to tell which one has the better hair: Emily or Jef.
Congrats you cuties!

For our northern neighbors who feel left out watching the Big Brother 14 team trot around a track in a fake horse costume trying yank off a competitors tail on last night’s episode – you’re in luck!
You too, can apply and audition for Big Brother Canada, and get the chance and reality TV fame and fortune! And you can do it SOON!
Here’s what I know:
Big Brother 14 premieres Thursday night – and the world will finally get meet to the bikini clad cast … as well as four former house guests who come back to coach and mentor newbies in hopes of making them $500,000 richer. (They get $100k if they do!)
Even though I’m a reality TV expert with all sorts of secrets and insights on the casting process, I’ve never really written about Big Brother before (one of the most clandestine shows of all), nor have I gotten as obsessed about it as other reality shows. (Yes, Bachelorette, I am talking to you.) But I am SO watching Big Brother this year, and I’ll tell you why: It starts with a D and ends with a Gheesling. Yup! My old friend Dan Gheesling is BACK on the show! Your remember him. He’s the hunky guy from Season 10 that walked away with a giant, novelty check worth $500,000.
I know Dan from way back in my Survivor casting days, when I brought him in for semi-finals in Chicago. He was so cute, a little cocky and genuinely nice. And he still is! While he didn’t make Survivor, from what he tells me – NOT getting that show helped him get on Big Brother. Read his book and you’ll find out how.
I’m in it, too!
I think, since I knew him way before Big Brother fame, I might be his biggest fan! I still have his Survivor application floating around somewhere, I’m sure scribbled with my notes about what a charmer he was.
So, in honor of Dan Gheesling’s return to prime time, Here’s a FREE TIP for anyone who wants to get on reality TV, taken right from Dan Gheesling book of life.
WEAR A TUX.
Not to the interview, that would be weird. But maybe in one of the photos you submit. Dan did. And it caught my eye. It was unexpected to see a guy wearing a dashing tux applying for a cut throat, bug eating, sleep in-the-dirt show.
If you don’t have a penguin suit, try to snap a photo that makes you absolutely shimmer with personality. Dogs and babies always help. Here’s a good example from my own life:
I mean, come on!
Okay, I have to go WATCH Big Brother 14 now. Good luck Dan! Me and my dog hope you win!
In this week’s shocking eposide, Mark takes the remaining four ladies to build a home for charity. Annie is overjoyed to help. Willow reconnects with an old friend. Carly tries to send Mark a message. Titi must face her deeply intense fear of homeless people.
Which lucky lady will get the hose this week?

Every hose has its thorn… If you think The Bachelorette has drama, take a looksy at the tear inducing turmoil tearing poor Mark Orlando’s heart to pieces… on an all new BURNING LOVE!
I’m starting to look forward to Mark and his web series minions more than Emily and her suitors. Is that bad??

I got on the phone with E! Online’s very own Answer Bitch (a.k.a Leslie Gornstein) the other day to discuss reality TV salaries and what, if anything, is cause for a pay bump – like bringing the drama and getting arrested and such. Sadly, there isn’t an equation where a girl-on-girl kiss = an extra $10K a season, or a night in jail = a book deal!
But can you just imagine what people would do if there was!?
In a random twist of fate, I happened to be in New York yesterday when my buds over at 20/20 called me to see if I was available for an interview for tonight’s episode. I was! So I went to ABC studios and sat down with Deborah Roberts – who is absolutely the nicest person I have ever met – and we discussed that huge scandal with Timothy Poe on America’s Got Talent.
If you don’t know the story, Timothy Poe faked being a war hero. The verdict is out as to whether he was also faking a stutter brought on by battle wounds. America and the judges loved his story when he auditioned for the show, and it turns out, he was actually a pretty good singer. But when it got out that he lied, the shit hit the fan.
Deborah and I chatted about why Poe would go to such great lengths to get on the show and why some people feel compelled to lie when they run the risk of being found out. Seriously, you can’t hide when you’re on national television!
It’s slated to air tonight at 10/9 on ABC. Hope you catch it!
This just in: ‘Teen Mom’ star Amber Portwood was sentenced to prison Tuesday after getting in a whole heap of legal trouble, including felony drug charges, dropping out of rehab, and lying about a failed urine test.
Portwood was first arrested on felony domestic violence charges in November 2010 because of incidents seen on her show — where she was shown shoving, punching, slapping and choking her boyfriend, Gary Shirley.
Wow. Just wow.
While it was probably a very good thing that MTV captured footage this girl going nuts on her boyfriend so it could be used against her in a court of law at a later time, why didn’t the crew step in and help??
EXCLUSIVE: Fireman Mark Orlando arrives at the Burning Love mansion to meet his future wife. Will she be beautiful, smart, ethnic? Only time will tell. One thing is for sure, he’s going to have a tough time narrowing it down to one woman. Can’t he have two?
