Snooki of Jersey Shore fame stepped out last night with blue eyes, a big change from her usual dark brown. If it weren’t for the fact that she remains a 4′ orange oompa loompa-like being, we might not have recognized her! The reality star also known as Nicole Polizzi tweeted that she thought she looked like “a vampire” with the new contacts in. It’s true, we could see her on The Vampire Diaries (provided she gets devoured by a werewolf in short order). What do you think of the look? Vote on her best eye color below:
We knew it !!!! Now that Reggie Bush is making his living in a city often frequented by Kim Kardashian, an insider tells Life & Style that the Dolphins running back wants to try again with his ex, August 20 wedding to Kris Humphries be damned. … or is it? “He’s been sending text messages to Kim and leaving her voice mails, telling her she’s making a mistake and that he’s the one for her,” a source says . Bush may be “begging” Kardashian for another chance, this mole claims, but “she’s truly moved on” and is excited topad her bank accountmarry Humphries in just over a week. But should she be? Or should she get back together with Bush?
There were eliminations on America’s Got Talent last night, but no surprises. Find out below who went home and who will perform again… Eliminations Part 1 – Powerhouse and Gymkana – If I wanted to watch a good Glee -style singing group… I’d watch Glee . Powerhouse wasn’t the best group and there were too many voices muffling the routine. Gymkana, on the other hand, had a strong routine and advanced through. Musical Guest – Tay Zonday, “Chocolate Rain,” pictured – I loved that the song continued to sound so amateur even though he was performing in front of America. I also loved his chair. Musical Guest – Keenan Cahill – The routine was silly but fun to watch. Nick Cannon faux-sing/rapping was a nice change. Keenan’s jacket looked horrible. Musical Performance – OK Go ft. Pilobolus, “All Is Not Lost”- The routine was really interesting and had wonderful shapes created with bodies. There is something unflattering about seeing squashed butts and the bottoms of feet on a piece of Plexiglas. Eliminations Part 2 – Matt Wilhelm, TNC Elite, Aeon – Matt continued to prove that black lights, shadows, or neon are the way to succeed in America’s Got Talent. It was foreboding that TNC looked depressed as they walked to the stage; they knew that it was Matt’s round to lose. Aeon didn’t have the right scenery to make a beautiful routine; they should have gone with more walls and places to jump off of. Matt was easily through. Musical Performance – Rebecca Black , “My Moment/Friday” – Rebecca still isn’t a good singer, but she’s gotten better. Maybe it was the arrangement or the fact that her performance lasted like 15 seconds, but it wasn’t bad. Eliminations Part 3 – Kalani Basketball Freestyle, Brett Daniels, Kevin Colis, Breena Bell – When balls go down, America doesn’t normally give second chances so Kalani was out of luck. The magic trick from Brett was too slow for America. The judges did a great job shooting down Breena without killing her dreams. While I hated Kevin’s song choice, of the four that he was standing against, he did the best. I still argue that his voice isn’t miraculous. Let’s hope he chooses a better song next time. Musical Performance – Up & Over It, “Hands” – I watched Britain’s Got Talent and I loved Up & Over It this year. I was happy they were given more than 15 seconds than the other YouTube acts. They managed to segue their hand dancing to their Irish dancing better than Britain’s Got Talent. If they did this routine instead of “9 to 5,” they would have advanced further. Final Elimination – West Springfield Dance Team, Gabe Rocks, Beth Ann Robinson – West Springfield Dance Team needs a better name, if they are always dark; they need a name to match. We need a good animal act and Gabe Rocks was strong, but could have been better. Watching both So You Think You Can Dance and this show, Beth Ann Robinson shows future growth potential but I’m not sure if she’s ready. The act that was eliminated was Gabe Rocks. When the groups begged for the judge’s vote, Beth Ann came off sounding pageant-y, but more confident than the Dance Team’s representative. The judging started with Piers and he continued to demean Gabe Rocks, voting for Beth. Sharon pointed out that Beth was a perfectionist, but she voted for West Springfield. Howie had the last vote and went for Beth Ann Robinson. It didn’t matter, though, since Sharon put West Spring in the wild card.
With Camille Grammer and Kelsey Grammer locked in a battle over their children , the reality star has decided to take the former couple’s feud down to a childlike level. First, in a promo for season two of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills , Camille references her ex and says: “big hands, big feet, big disappointment.” Asked to elaborate in the following video, Grammer responds: “I had that for 13 years, unfortunately.” How mature and classy.

Former Spice Girls singer Mel C, a.k.a. Melanie Chisholm, is critical of Rihanna for being too sexual in her videos and on stage for her young fans. Mel, who has a two-year-old daughter Scarlet with boyfriend Thomas Starr, has grown concerned about the musician’s “inappropriate” imagery. In an interview with the Daily Mirror (UK), she said : “People have to take responsibility because we’ve got to a point where sexualization of children has gone too far. I think music is a big part of that. Women in music are extremely sexual and have young fans. It is inappropriate.” ” Rihanna has a responsibility and although culture’s always changing, it’s changed too much. It needs to be dealt with. It’s reached saturation point.” “We owe it to our kids to protect them.” Mel believes RiRi makes many of her X-rated artistic decisions – whipping reporters, dressing in next to nothing, her “S&M” video in general – because she isn’t a mother herself. That’s something she hopes will change one day. “I love Rihanna, I think she’s a f***ing brilliant artist, with great songs, a great record and she looks fantastic … but she’s not a mum. Maybe if she becomes one someday then she’ll feel different. I hope so anyway.” Mel and her Spice Girls bandmates – Victoria Beckham, Geri Halliwell, Mel B and Emma Bunton – were criticized in the late 90s for being too sexual. “Yes we wore crop tops, look how much has changed,” Mel C says. “We always sat down as a group and if somebody felt something was inappropriate for our young fans, we did something about it. I think that’s something younger people in the music industry today, like Rihanna, should do now.” What do you think? Is Rihanna a bad role model ? Is Mel C hypocritical? [Photos: WENN.com]
We recently saw Rihanna rocking a Bob Marley bathing suit but these photos got us wondering if the singer smokes weed like the reggae icon too. Rihanna was photo’d lighting up a fat cigar on the beach, although we can’t tell if that’s a regular ol’ cigar or one filled with some wacky tabacky.

In the first half of our two-part interview with Shaunie O’Neal, she held nothing back as we grilled her on the behind-the-scenes politics surrounding the ever controversial “Basketball Wives” reality series. As our conversation continued Shaunie revealed her thoughts on “Messy” Meeka, the state of Jen & Evelyn’s friendship and “Basketball Wives: LA”. Do you think Jen had a point about Chad being a media-whore? I think it’s absolutely no one’s business. I always tell Evelyn and everybody else, if she’s happy, I’m happy, that’s my friend. What Chad does, doesn’t do, how he does it, is none of my business. As long as she’s happy or they are happy together, I don’t understand why everyone is all like “is it real, is it fake?” I mean they’ve been together like over a year. But Jen is her friend and had concerns, so it’s not like it’s just the public speculating? There’s so much that you guys miss because it’s an hour long show and they don’t want to be a dead horse over 12 hours of the same subject, there’s a lot that you guys miss. I think that Evelyn and Jen’s relationship…they are not as close as they were, they don’t talk everyday like they used to. We’re not bff’s all the time. So again I don’t know where Jen was coming from or how Jen was trying to come at it. I know she wasn’t trying to hurt Evelyn. I think Evelyn needed to get something off her chess to Jen; Jen probably needed to get a few things off of her chest to Evelyn and friendships do go on roller-coasters sometimes. Sometimes you fall out with your best friend in the whole world for 20 years but you figure it out and that’s all that matters. Did Meeka just leave the show never to be heard from again? Meeka was trying to tape within 12 hours of having the physical altercation with Tami. She didn’t want to leave Rome. She was all in for coming back and would be all in for another season, but I’m not sure that’s the direction we would take again because it just didn’t seem to work. You’ve been vocal about not feeling the cast of “Basketball Wives: LA”. Was the LA show a part of your plans for the franchise? I did intend for the show to branch out. I always wanted us to go to different cities. I didn’t know the first was going to be in L.A. beceause I was still in the process of filming season three in Miami. I knew a few of the girls. Gloria from jump was going to be in the L.A. [cast] and I was fine with that. Her sister definitely was not in discussion, I’m a line drawer at some point. I would never have chosen to take that route. Now as it starts to film and things start to happen, this has turned in to, there’s some basketball wives, fiances, girlfriends and then you have ‘I slept with a Basketball player at one time in my life and I’m on the show.’ That’s not ok with me. I wanted some women that actually had relationships with these men that aren’t denied. We look forward to seeing how it all goes down on the reunion special next week. I’m predicting Royce, Evelyn and Tami get in to a physical altercation, Suzy looks confused, Shaunie looks shocked and Jennifer watches while wondering if this is how people on food stamps behave. “Basketball Wives” Tami Roman Dishes On Fight With Meeka, Meeka Responds “Basketball Wives” Tami Roman Sued For Attacking Co-Star Meeka Claxton Shaunie O’Neal Defends “Basketball Wives” Franchise [EXCLUSIVE]
