Happy Halloween – Hope Your Kids Are Not Dressing As Snooki

Yeah I know the youth of today, whatever happened to dressing up as Frankenstein or a witch. No this little group are the crew from Jersey Shore. Hopefully they are asking for sweets rather than jelly shots!

Also Heidi Klum, host of Project Runway, has cancelled her now famous Halloween Party due to Hurricane Sandy. (Source: News.com.au)

Happy Halloween everyone.

Empire Girls: Julissa & Adrienne – A Latino Sex In The City

In America there is a huge latino market in all areas fashion, beauty, and of course TV. Empire Girls: Julissa & Adrienne is one such show.

This reality show follows the lives of best friends and rising Latina starlets Julissa Bermudez and Adrienne Bailon as they strive to conquer the cutthroat world of show business in New York City.

Julissa, from the video countdown show “106 & Park” and Adrienne, from American girl group “The Cheetah Girls”, are also on a quest to find lasting love, all while maintaining their fabulous lifestyle and enviable social calendar.

Must admit I am always partial to a show with New York City as its backdrop.

The girls  as well as their careers in common also appear to date douches.  Julissa’s desire to date star athletes constantly ends in heartbreak and puts her at odds with Adrienne who implores her to consider other options. However, Adrienne has her own share of boy issues as she looks to move on from her past relationship with Rob Kardashian.

For fans of this reality genre it could be a bit of fun. “Empire Girls: Julissa & Adrienne” premières Thursday, November 8th 2012 at 9:30pm on Style.

Big Brother – Minor Fallout But No Explosion

Is Michael just very sexually frustrated, does he genuinely like Estelle or is he realising she is popular and does not want to be seen to be “hating” on her?

I suspect a little bit of all three. If they are final two as the bookies are suggesting will he think his “romance” with her has assisted him. He told her he nominated her out of habit, and then told Big Brother he has like her for the last month but still nominated her. He also thinks they have a lot in common.

It is like Michael is taking what Benjamin said on board about him being able to win it and is just making some big plays both with the housemates, Big Brother and the viewers.  I am not buying all I am seeing.

There was no major explosion from the secrets reveal just some minor bitching.

Layla was the one who appeared to be the most hurt by Benjamin as she felt that he had made her feel paranoid about him not liking her but him saying “he will destroy her” is pretty hard to talk himself out of. You get the feeling Benjamin also knows he has blown it with viewers because of this. If he did  a big apology to the housemates that might be favourable.

Also Layla told Ben he does not know her if he thinks she like to get her way, she said she was the only on of her friends who does not take presents. To be honest I did not buy that one as my impression of Layla was she was a material girl.

Other highlights from the episode:

  • Zoe said she does not know when she has over stepped the mark when it came to guys;
  • Michael trying to appear humble in the diary room saying Zoe was twice the person he was;
  • Benjamin told Estelle that he had never nominated her when BB flashed up he had nominated her in week three and four. Whoops.
  • Thought Estelle was listening to Layla bitching about Benjamin she said and agreed with her listen to your gut feeling line;
  • Layla being bothered by seeing Sam giving Angie a hickey;
  • Layla says she does not care about anything, but was upset with Benjamin and Sam;
  • Sam does seem to care for Layla, though the toothpaste fight was a strange way of showing it;
  • Benjamin interviewing the housemates under a “lie detector”, and then revealing to Michael that Layla and Sam would take the money over each other. Like that is a negative thing all of them in the house would.

Australia’s Got Talent – Maybe Resurrected

Rumours are circulating the newly axed Australia’s Got Talent will now be seen on TEN.  Well if this rumour is true it must be the quickest resurrection of a program ever.

News.com.au are reporting NINE have grabbed it to screen in the latter half of the 2013 year. It states they would like to keep Danni Minogue but Kyle Sandilands and Brian McFadden’s services would not be retained. Also there would have to be a new host as Grant Denyer is contracted to SEVEN.

If the rumour is true NINE must think they can give it a bit of razzle to make it a much watch hit again.

If it is true who do you think the other judges might be? Hamish and Andy?

Will keep you posted.
