Here Comes Honey Boo Boo’s Mama June and Sugar Bear reportedly exchanged vows in a romantic ceremony on Sunday May 5th. The two have yet to confirm if they are now actually married or just recommitted to each other.
The ceremony was host to some interesting fashion where Mama June sported a camouflage dress accented with a bright orange sash. Sugar Bear sported matching camo pants and tie (so on point with his menswear game), a black shirt and orange vest. Of course, Honey Boo Boo was all glitzed up for the event in a sparkly pink and orange dress of her own.
“My sister baked the cake, and we spent most of the money on barbecue,” June told People Magazine. “We stayed true to our roots and made the focus on the family and my commitment to Sugar Bear. You can definitely plan an event on a budget!”
Also in attendance were Honey Boo Boo’s sisters Pumpkin, Chickadee ad Chubbs. June also revealed some important love advice to the mag:
“Never settle for a man who doesn’t treat you right,” she says. “If a guy doesn’t love everything about you, move on! There are plenty of other fish in the sea.”
“I give this advice to my daughters,” she adds, “because I always want them to be themselves and surround themselves with people who love them for them.”
A trailer for Demi Lovato’s fourth studio album, DEMI, was released on Monday, along with some exciting news! DEMI is slated to hit stores on May 14th but fans will be able to pre-order the album on April 2nd (Canada and the USA only) and April 9th (worldwide).
The newly released cover art shows the “Give Your Heart A Break” singer looking fierce in silver body paint. DEMI is Lovato’s fourth studio album. Lovato is also set to return as a judge on the upcoming season of The X-Factor.
After having already dominated the U.K. pop music scene, British girl group The Saturdays have decided to try their luck at making it big in North America.
To help them make their mark on Hollywood with their own E! reality show, Chasing The Saturdays, which document their life as they record their fourth studio album in America. The girls have also recently released their latest single, “What About Us,” featuring Grammy-award winning artist, Sean Paul.
ANDPOP caught up with The Saturdays’ Vanessa White to talk about the show, charities, and life on the road.
The Saturdays’ American Dreams
According to White, it was just a matter of perfect timing before the band tried to release music in the US. “It’s definitely something we wanted to do straight away since the beginning but it was finding the time to actually go and do it,” she said. White adds that the band wanted to make sure they were well established in the UK before releasing music anywhere else. Now just seemed like the perfect time to move to the U.S.
Girl Groups in the U.S. VS. the U.K.
White says she has no idea why girl groups seem to be bigger in the U.K. than in North America.
“I feel like all of a sudden there’s this whole British feel that everyone’s loving [in North America] but there has been no girl bands,” White says. “I guess that’s one of our reasons for going over there because we feel like there should be!”
On having cameras on them 24/7 for Chasing The Saturdays
White says the band wanted to make the show as authentic as possible. “It’s definitely something we were nervous about but we felt like if we were going to do a reality show we had to give them everything,” White says. “There’s a lot of personal stuff in there as well and we just wanted it to be relatable to young girls.”
Even though the band was put together separately through auditions, they hit it off straight away and had great chemistry, says White. “We are completely different five girls and it’s really weird that all of us really do get on but we’re just like sisters,” she White. “When you watch the show there’s no hiding that.”
White had just finished a photo shoot for U.K. charity Comic Relief before getting on the phone with us all the way from London. “[Charity] is really, really important and whenever we can, we always get involved because we’re really lucky and privileged to be in the position we are,” she said.

Now that Gossip Girl is over, are you wondering where you’ll get your weekly T.V. fashion fix? The end of Gossip Girl has left a big fashion hole in the land of television so we’ll be going through a couple of options for you to try. Some of these shows might fill the void, but only time will tell.
The Carrie Diaries
This is the most likely successor to fill the space Gossip Girl has left on our T.V. schedules. Probably because Gossip Girl was the show that succeeded the fashionable and iconic Sex and the City. So with The Carrie Diaries being a prequel to SATC, this new show has all the elements of being your new T.V. fashion fix. As viewers we’ll get to witness the young Carrie Bradshaw (played by the excellent AnnaSophia Robb) discover her voice and love of fashion and we’ll get to see how she became the style icon that we know and love (i.e. Sarah Jessica Parker).
Pros: Fun 80s fashion and a glimpse of a wilder, funkier, and grittier New York City that is long gone. Plus Carrie Bradshaw is back in our lives!
Cons: NYC = fashion and the city was a character in itself for SATC and Gossip Girl but The Carrie Diaries only partially takes place in NYC. Plus being stuck in the 80s means less chances for modern and fashion forward moments.
The Beverly Hills 90210 reboot has somewhat lived in the shadows of Gossip Girl. The original 90210 was a major fashion fix in the 90s, making the Californian ZIP Code the most fashionably coveted place to live during its early run on television. The show put sunny Hollywood Californian style on the map but in the fashion world the West Coast is not actually the Best Coast. NYC is couture while L.A. is Hollywood glam. The new 90210 has all the elements of taking the fashion reigns from Gossip Girl but those are quite big shoes to fill and the window for viewers to get on board on already established show is small (you’re going to have to play a lot of catch-up).
Pros: Its young, beautiful, and stylish cast. Plus the show’s a fashion fix legacy (never forget the amazing shoulder pads of Brenda, Kelly, and Donna).
Cons: The shadow from Gossip Girl still looms, while The O.C. set the standard high for young Californian style in the new Millennium.

Tonight’s show was unique as the contestants had to perform two songs each. One of those songs was chosen by the very people that keep the show going: the fans. The Pepsi Challenge assigned three songs to each contestant and the songs that got the most votes was performed on last night’s show. The contestants even tweeted what they were wearing; CeCe Frey tweeted a photo of her shorts and asked “denim or no denim?” The other song wasn’t revealed until they actually performed it — it was called the ‘unplugged’ song.
For tonight, here are my top three favourites:
Emblem 3 – “Forever Young” by Rod Stewart (From the Pepsi Challenge)
Emblem 3 is so adorable; they remind me of a boy band from the 90s. I felt it was really appropriate that they sang ‘Forever Young’, since they really embody youth and that boyish charm that makes preteen girls go nuts. I felt they did a really good rendition and they all sang the song on point. While not all their performances are amazing, they really know how to keep in harmony together and make it work. Demi had the biggest smile on her face and told they judges they all know she’s a fan, but she wants to see them command the stage more. However, @SimonCowell tweeted “I have no idea what Demi is talking about @emblemthree were amazing.”
Carly Rose Sonenclar – “If I Were A Boy” (From the Pepsi Challenge)
This performance can literally be summed up by one line she sings towards the end: “But you’re just a boy, no you don’t understand.” As soon as I hard her vocalize that line, I pretty much just accepted that the competition is probably over because Carly is phenomenal. Though this is an overplayed song, she performed it just as well as Beyonce herself, and it looks like she’s getting more confident every week. “As a fan I get very excited because you never let me down, you are so talented,” LA says. Demi said her vocals are amazing, but she wants to see her sing more up-tempo because it is predictable – Simon quickly interrupted and told Carly not to listen to anything Demi has to say. I must agree with Demi; it would be nice to see Carly go beyond the slow tempo and do something different rather than pick the same kind of song every week. Still, it was a flawless performance.
Tate Stevens – “If Tomorrow Never Comes” Read more…
It really couldn’t be more fitting. Remember Randall’s sassy narration of the “Crazy Nastyass Honey Badger?” The Honey Badger doesn’t care about anything. He just doesn’t give a shi*t. Just like reality TV’s pageant princess Honey Boo Boo!!
HyperVocal created the ultimate mashup using clips from TLC’s Here Comes Honey Boo Boo and Randall’s narration from the viral hit “Crazy Nastyass Honey Badger.” Why didn’t this happen sooner?

This week, Snooki and JWoww shocked a coffee shop with tales of their sexual escapades, JWoww learned to cook, and Snooki acted really sensitive to pretty much everything that came out of JWoww’s mouth. Here’s what I learned on this week’s Snooki and JWoww “Calm Down Hormonal.”
1. Snooki trained to be a vet tech but she doesn’t seem to like being around animals. At all. Snooki agreed to volunteer at a doggy daycare in order to help out JWoww with a discount and so she could make something of her degree. Getting to play with little doggies all day sounds like fun. But for Snooks, it looked terrible. She was cowering in a corner as the dogs jumped all over her (as dogs are apt to do) and when she had to pick up poop, she practically dry heaved. At least JWoww’s dog Bella had her back.
2. JWoww made a friend… At an organic cooking class, JWoww met Ashley, a cute twenty-something-year-old girl with a boyfriend in Austria. Her parents are professional bakers whom JWoww was trying to impress. That’s pretty much all I gathered about her given that she was on the show for five minutes. JWoww invited her out to dinner with her and Snooki since her roomie’s pregnancy was making her a little cuckoo bananas. Snooki liked her but still gave her the stink eye because, well she’s Snooki.
3. … and possibly loses a boyfriend? The episode ends on a pretty scary note, as Roger called JWoww and accused her of lying to him about a lawsuit, which she claimed to know nothing about. Since JWoww admitted she lies sometimes, it’s hard to know who to believe in this scenario. Hopefully it will all get sorted out, because despite all their issues, Roger and JWoww seemed to be good for each other.

First there was the Pauly D Project. Now, there’s the inevitable Snooki and JWoww spinoff show appropriately (albeit unoriginally) titled Snooki & JWoww. The premise? Both girls want to have one last hurrah before settling down with their respective beaus. While the first episode was pretty lackluster compared to a booze-soaked episode of Jersey Shore, having a pregnant Snooki and JWoww living under one roof will certainly be an interesting situation (no pun intended).
Here’s what I learned on the premier of Snooki and J-Woww:
1) Despite being a 24-year-old gajillionaire, Snooki still lives at home with her parents. She also doesn’t do her own laundry, cook for herself, buy groceries, and does not even know what a utility bill is let alone paid one. And J-Woww wants to move in with her why? As her boyfriend Roger pointed out, the only thing Snooki actually knows how to do is get white-girl wasted. Which something tells me doesn’t exactly get the chores done.
2) The real estate market in Jersey City kinda sucks. Besides the eye candy that was their tardy real estate agent Victor, the girls’ apartment search wasn’t much to write home about at first. With 100-year-old buildings, beds that “smell like grandmas” and creepy, shirtless next door neighbours, the first couple of place were pretty awful. But it has to get worse before it gets better, right? And by better I mean a beautiful converted firehouse that’s probably bigger than my parent’s house. Sorry, Mom and Dad, but I’m dropping out of school and becoming a reality star. Like tomorrow.
3) Reality stars don’t tell their best friends about their pregnancies and engagements right away like normal people. Read more…
Yikes! Looks like Snooki has been caught in an embarrassing scandal again.
While she prepares to become a mother, photos of her posing nude have now surfaced.
“Clearly these are old and personal photos that were not meant for the public,” her rep says to E! News. “It’s a shame someone decided to leak them for obvious personal gain.”
Seriously? I would have thought celebs would have known better than to take nude photos of themselves at risk of being leaked.
But seeing that this is Snooki, who has been known to act scandalous and irresponsible, this shouldn’t be very shocking news.
I sure hope she’ll tone down her behaviour once the baby arrives!
One of the many themes in The Hunger Games is our extreme obsession with sadistic reality television programs. We love watching when marriages fall apart, a bratty desperado doesn’t get a rose or when someone gets voted off the island. In The Hunger Games arena, contestants fight to the the death and the prize is that you get to live.
Luckily, Suzanne Collins’ reality show idea isn’t real (yet), but if it ever does happen, I think this Coca Cola sponsorship commercial is pretty spot on. The director, Adam Sacks, imagines what an ad would look like by Coca Cola if they sponsored the show.
Give it time everyone… It will happen.
Although the show was taken off the air last summer, it has been rumoured that The Hills‘ executive producer, Adam DiVello, had hopes for turning the reality show into a feature film following its last episode, but the cast wished to take a break from the show all together.
“We were kind of all just so fed up with each other that we all needed a little break,” The Hills‘ star Audrina Partridge told Ryan Seacrest in a recent interview on his radio show. But not all hope is lost! ”We’ve all had our break. Maybe we’ll all come back together and do a movie,” she continued.
Seeing as how the show was already scripted to begin with, a movie filled with never-ending drama and Kristin Cavallari, Lauren Conrad, Brody Jenner, the Pratt siblings, Lauren Bosworth, and Heidi Montag could actually have some potential as a source of entertainment. We can’t wait to see if our wish, and DiVello’s, actually comes true!
Would you want to see a movie version of The Hills?
It’s never right to take pleasure in someone else’s misfortune – unless it’s Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt. It turns out these classless fame whores are out of money and living at Spencer’s parents house – YES!
They told The Daily Beast their plan for fame and world domination didn’t work out as planned. Spencer says, “Reality TV is not a career.” Also they were spending money they didn’t really have. Anything they had they spent – like spending $2 Million on Heidi’s singing career.
“I probably spent a million dollars on suits and fancy clothes,” Spencer says. “My whole million-dollar wardrobe—I would never wear that again. They’re props. Everything we were doing, we were buying props.”
We are glad the truth has finally come out. This couple is just con artists looking to manipulate the media and people. It’s nice to see the truth finally come out.
I had a feeling there would be some competition between these shows. Let the reality-singing-catfight begin.
The Voice’s Adam Levine, who front runs Maroon 5, was the first to fire a verbal shot when he said on the last episode:
“The people that we’re not turning our chairs around for could win American Idol.”
American Idol’s Randy Jackson was quick to fire back, though. Here’s what he had to say:
“It’s a great thing when talent can be simple, honest and revered as opposed to spinning around with gimmicky chairs. Maybe Simon Cowell should have people opening doors. Like, ‘Knock, knock; Who’s singing? I can’t see you!’”
Jackson continued, saying ”Look, none of these other shows could exist without somebody forging the path before them. I’m happy to say that Idol did that and paved the way.”
Listen, I think there’s room for both shows. I’m sure anyone who tunes into American Idol will tune into The Voice, and vice versa, so let’s all be friendly, K?
Almost every major broadcaster in the U.S. has it’s own reality dance show. ABC airs “Dancing with the Stars,” MTV has “America’s Best Dance Crew,” FOX shows “So You Think You Can Dance” and Paula Abdul is the star of an upcoming CBS reality dance show.
But it’s not just a mere coincidence. The reason is simple: audiences are craving them. “So You Think You Can Dance Canada” is proof of this north of the boarder. Premiering in 2008, the Canadian reality show became an instant hit. The following year it ended season two with 11 per cent more viewers and an average audience of 1.43 million viewers.
“So You Think You Can Dance Canada has discovered some amazing talent over the past two seasons,” said CTV’s Susanne Boyce. “Show alumni are performing with Janet Jackson, Katy Perry, Alicia Keys, Ke$ha, and Adam Lambert, among others, making a statement about Canadian dance around the world.”
The third season kicked off Sunday at 9 p.m. EST. Performer and choreographer Blake McGrath — who’s a judge on the show — thinks this will be their biggest season yet. “I think it’s gonna be a stronger season for sure all around, from the choreography to the contestants,” he shared. “I’m really excited for it.”
For dancers hoping to make it onto the show, McGrath says the first step is training. Having confidence is a close second.
The reality show kicks off with Toronto auditions. Fans can catch weekly highlights and behind the scenes footage on demand at CTV.ca.
Keep track of the season three audition episodes with the list below:
· Sunday, August 15 at 9 p.m. ET (two hour premiere) – Toronto Auditions

Stars from your most loved – or hated – reality shows are teaming up to create a new reality show for your viewing pleasure. Jersey Shore’s Snooki broke up with Emilio Masella via voicemail and he is now in search of love. So, why not turn to the crowd pleaser, Spencer Pratt, for help.
People.com reports that Masella is teaming with Pratt’s production company called (no surprise) Pratt Productions to create the show. Masella, A Gold’s Gym trainer is starring in the show, which is called Fist Pumping for Love, and he will travel the country “in search of love.”
Sounds like a match made in heaven, and The Hill’s star believes so as well.
“It is the perfect partnership for me as a growing player in reality television,” Pratt said in a statement released Thursday.
He then added that if you don’t know Emilio Masella, 21, “You haven’t seen nothing yet.”
After getting dumped, Masella is ready to move on – but away from girls like Snooki, whose real name is Nicole Polizzi.
“I am tired of these fake Italian girls,” says Masella, who dated the Jersey Shore star for four months. “I want a real guid-ette who can speak Italian, so we are prepared to take my search from Hollywood, Calif., to the streets of Howard Beach in Queens, N.Y.”
Filming for the show begins Wednesday night in the best place to pick up a new girl – a local bar and will continue this weekend in the Long Island club Glow.
Pratt wasn’t going to keep this good thing to himself – he is sharing it with his wife, as Heidi Montag is listed as an executive producer for the new show.
We’ve all had our share of disloyal friends, but none tops grieving country-music star Shania Twain’s longtime friend and assistant. She says doing a reality show on Oprah Winfrey’s new cable network is another step toward her recovery after heartache, reports People.com.
“I feel like in a way I’m starting over, with everything,” Twain, 44, told Winfrey in an interview at an event in New York on Thursday. “This is a very personal experience that I think is important to share. This is an experience of recovery. I was in a very deep, dark slump, and I needed to find a way to get myself out of it. I had to force myself back out into life, back out into experiencing things.”
Popular American television network MTV has finally admitted what most people have alluded to for quite some time now: that it is no longer “music television,” reports CHARTattack.com.
The network, which launched in 1981 with the specific purpose to air music videos, launched a new logo yesterday (Monday, Feb. 8), which no longer houses the “music television” tagline that has been part of their original logo for nearly 30 years.
“I’m abstinent now,” she told People. “I realized that with abstinence, if you really, really believe in yourself like I do, you discover your own self-worth. Abstinence means you refrain from any sex — thinking about it, doing it — even to yourself! I’m a born-again virgin.”
Staub says it’s been “over a year-and-a-half” since she’s had sex. It must not be that much of a struggle as she is not worried about a relationship sans sex, because she says the anticipation will be worth it.
When I was ambushed this morning with yet another sickening “Jon and Kate” story, I asked for the first time: ”Who the hell is taking care of their eight children?” For the past month, these two have been the subject of constant interviews and “celebrity” sightings, but I never see their kids with them.
Yet Kate Gosselin claimed that she did it all for the kids, but it’s clearly not the case. Several testimonies from sources close to the family, including her estranged husband Jon, reported that the show was having a negative affect on the children. The layers of bullshit continue to pile on.
Gosselin’s tortured desperation for attention has shoved her entire family into the wrong spotlight. Along with the Balloon Boy fiasco, they’ve set an example for prostituting their children – and dignity – for the opportunity at fame and wealth.
Nadya Suleman, who gave birth to the world’s longest-surviving set of octuplets in January, has signed a deal for a reality television show, reports CBC. Suleman will receive $250,000 for all 14 of her children to appear on the show – about $250 a day, per child. The contract spreads the money over three years of shooting.
Instead of shooting Suleman, 33, and her family on a daily basis, the show will only include milestones such as birthdays and other special events.
“They came up with this idea, presented to her and she liked it because she’ll get to use a camera to do some of the filming herself,” said her lawyer, Jeff Czech.
