Gina J.’s Dirty Laundry May 21st, 2014
Season premieres, finales and winning contestants, which Glee co-star did Lea Michele date (besides Cory Monteith), and more drama with Sherri Shepherd’s messy divorce. All this and MORE in today’s Dirty Laundry, presented by Harte Nissan and Harte Infiniti.
Last night was the finale of Dancing with the Stars and the winner was…. Meryl Davis and her partner Maksim Chmerkovskiy. They avoided the questions if they were dating but he did say he proposed to her within 5 minutes of meeting her and he’s still waiting for an answer. Iggy Azalea performed but had a problem with her ear piece and it caused her to mess up the opening to Fancy. BUT someone was kicked out last night… former contestant Andy Dick!!! He was running in and out of the ballroom every five minutes, saying, “I have to pee!” Within an hour, he had lunged at a production staffer’s breast. Security kicked him out.
I Want to Marry Harry premiered last night…and I have to say it was one of the worst shows I’ve watched in a long time…the guy, Matthew Hicks, is a 23-year-old oil spill worker who can’t afford a car, but he looks a bit like Prince Harry. Twelve American women are fighting for his love on the show. One girl was sent home and the others were a bunch of airheads. One was a drunk, another was a preschool teacher who is proud to say that she’s a naughty preschool teacher. Basically the fake Prince says American women are loud and very forward. Here are some quotes from the girls:
“The guys I’m used to dating just get me drunk and make out with me in the back of the bar.”
“We don’t have tea parties where I’m from. I don’t think Long Island Iced Teas count.”
Sherri Shepherd‘s divorce is getting messier…her soon to be ex-husband has asked a judge to have all documents sealed because he fears that their unborn child is now a target for a kidnapping!! He thinks Sherri is such a big celebrity and thinks there will be tons of media at hospital when their baby is born and it would “expose our son to criminals who might target our child for financial gain.”
On the premiere of The Bachelorette on Monday a former contestant, Chris Bukowski, crashed and tried to get to meet Andi Dorfman. The show made it look like he was a stalker but the guy is now saying it was all staged. Chris Bukowski tells TMZ, “They made it seem like they didn’t know I was coming, but they knew.”
Lea Michelle admits that she dated someone else from the show Glee. She dated Matthew Morrison while they were doing a show on Broadway…before they were on Glee. “When we shot the pilot, I met Cory Monteith, Kevin McHale, Amber Riley, and Chris Colfer for the first time. I had worked on Broadway with Jenna Ushkowitz and Matthew Morrison before. Matt had been a friend of mine for years, and in fact we’d actually dated back in the day for a Broadway beat.”
Michael Bublé knocked out a tooth during a performance! He hit himself in the mouth with his microphone!
· “Eat something green every day with every meal.”
· “Do not pick your nose in public.”
· “If someone doesn’t want to play with you, it’s okay. It’s okay. Not everyone is going to love us; go find someone who does want to play with you and who appreciates what you have to offer.”
Joe Manganiello played Big Dick Richie in the first Magic Mike…and now he’s produced a documentary about a group of guys who work at a Dallas strip club, La Bare…the movie will follow them from training, to performing to their personal lives. Here’s the trailer to the movie.
The countdown is on for Kim Kardashian and Kanye West’s wedding… family and friends are arriving in France except for Brody Jenner… rumors are he won’t be coming because he didn’t get a plus one on his invitation… he’s been dating a model for 7 months.
How much money is being spent on Kim and Kanye’s wedding?!!!?? $2 million on a dress… $650,000 rehearsal dinner, $6,000 bottles of champagne, $200,000 on fireworks, $3 million on security, $1mill on food!! E! is footing a lot of the bill though…
But let’s end this on a good note from a generous celebrity… Mark Cuban (owner of the Dallas Mavericks, star of ABC’s Shark Tank and the head of AXS tv)!! He found out about a couple that had been planning a wedding since 2009 and were struggling financially. They suffered a series of miscarriages and then the woman was diagnosed earlier this year with Stage 4 ovarian cancer…so what did he do? He paid for their dream wedding!!! Looks like Mark does this a lot…he donates money to people that need it but doesn’t want to recognition.
