According to TheWrap, Jack Manigault was murdered in what's being described as a "deadly lover's quarrel." Manigault was shot in the head on Sun., Oct. 9 in Youngstown, Ohio. The police report says Manigault was asleep with his girlfriend when her ex-boyfriend, 22-year-old Marco Cardenas, entered the house.
Though our friend Andy Dehnart at Reality Blurred reports that the staff projected an audience of 15,000 attendees, come convention weekend, nobody actually showed up. Seriously -- check out these photos of the event from B-Side blog, featuring crowds as large as 12 amassing to watch former 'Idol' finalist Andrew Garcia, empty autograph lines for 'Paranormal Files' hosts, and a 'Big Brother' panel with the same amount of panelists as audience members.
Even The Los Angeles Times, which co-sponsored the event, posted two devastating recaps on its Showtracker blog. Events featured "embarrassingly small audiences," and the lone high point from Saturday's write-up was that "the food lines were short."
Now it's time to salute another group of TV women who are marvelous in their own right: the stars of reality TV.
You love to hate them or hate to love them, and some you can't help but appreciate unconditionally -- no hate involved. From a cheftestant on 'Top Chef' to a 'Survivor,' here are our favorite reality TV ladies.
On the latest episode, the women are forced to do everyday chores, such as housecleaning. This exercise is meant to teach them humility and responsibility. But will anything good come of it?
Variety reports that The Donald has just inked a deal with the Golf Channel for a new unscripted reality show titled 'Donald J. Trump's Fabulous World of Golf' (yep).
Trump, who owns many golf courses in such places as Westchester, New York, Washington D.C., Los Angeles and Puerto Rico, is rounding up a host of celebrities to compete one-on-one for charities. Already on board to play a few holes are NFL legends Jerry Rice and Lawrence Taylor, with more athletes, musicians, actors and business-types reportedly to come.
The series will debut on April 26, 2010, with an initial order of six half-hour episodes.
Donald Trump and Omarosa are teaming up (with TV One) for Omarosa's Ultimate Merger, which will have 12 guys competing in various challenges to see who wins her heart. Her cold, cold heart.
Trump will appear on the show too (of course) and it will be filmed at the Trump International Hotel and Tower in Las Vegas. Not sure I like the name though. It would be better if it was titled So You Want To Try To Date Omarosa or Who Wants To Date An Omarosa or Are You Smart Enough Not To Date Omarosa?
Actually, the best title for the show is unfortunately already taken: Shark Tank.
Variety reports that the most infamous contestant from Donald Trump's reality show is getting her own deal for TV One. Besides finding Omarosa a new love interest, 'Omarosa's Ultimate Merger' wants to paint her in a new, less-evil light. Trump Productions and Juma Entertainment will produce with an initial order of 8 episodes.
Not only will this reunite the reality-watching public with Omarosa, the Donald will appear on camera, offering advice to Omarosa (yep). In a statement, Trump described 'Omarosa's Ultimate Merger' as a "tremendous new show." We shall see.
Great, now Omarosa has God on her side.
In what can only be construed as a last ditch attempt to somehow gain immortality, America's favorite reality TV villainess, Omarosa, has enrolled in seminary school, according to the Dayton Daily News.
The former star of The Apprentice, The Celebrity Apprentice, and The Surreal Life will be earning her doctorate of ministry at the United Theological Seminary. She'll be taking classes in Old Testament, New Testament, and History of Christianity. According to Omarosa, this is part of a "transformation" she's going through.
The cast may not include Omarosa and Piers, last season's winner, but Dennis Rodman, Clint Black, Annie Duke, Joan and Melissa Rivers stepped up to the drama plate.
Warning! If you haven't watched last night's episode yet, stop reading this post now and come back once you've watched it because I know you'll want some place to discuss the boardroom drama.
To borrow a phrase from the granddaddy of all reality shows, when it came to our Reality TV Awards, y'all decided to stop being polite ... and start getting real.
More than one million votes were tallied as you made your voices heard -- and how! -- on reality TV's best show, worst show, biggest trainwreck, best villain and more.
Click below to check out the results, plus our exclusive interview with the person you picked as hottest female star. (And no, it isn't Omarosa.)
I'm not watching Celebrity Apprentice. I watched the first season of the show, and I actually liked the Martha Stewart version of the show, but there's no way I'm going to sit in front of my TV for weeks and watch Marilu Henner battle Stephen Baldwin.
And I also question the "celebirty" status of some of these people. Case in point, Omarosa. She's only famous for being on, well, The Apprentice, so I think that sort of makes the whole premise of the show bogus. Fellow castmate Piers Morgan, who is also a judge on America's Got Talent, tells The New York Post that Omarosa actually approached him when the show started and asked him if he wanted to have a "showmance." Morgan had no idea what the hell she was talking about, but she explained that it's a romance between two people on a reality show. Morgan just told her she was "pathetic" and "deluded."
For me, the villains come in two categories -- the few whose appearances on the shows I've just outright loved because they were thoroughly entertaining even though devious and sneaky, then the ones who irked me to no end and I wanted them to go away.
I don't watch every show out there, but here are my sinister seven of reality television. After all, Spider-Man had his Sinister Six ... I want seven!
The Fox Reality network's Reality Remix show hosted its first annual awards ceremony this week in LA. The show won't air until November 22nd, but we've got the scoop on the goings-on.
Of course, I'm pretty sure that's what everyone is calling her anyway, ever since her appearance on NBC's The Apprentice a few seasons ago. But now she is offically dropping her last name (Manigault-Stallworth) and just going by the name "Omarosa."
So now she joins other celebrities that go by just one name, including Madonna, Twiggy, and Godzilla.
