Snooki: The New Season of Jersey Shore Is Full of LIES!

If you’ve been watching the current season of Jersey Shore Family Vacation, you may have noticed that something about the show is a bit … off.

And we’re not talking about the fact that Ronnie’s baby mama makes the rest of the cast look downright sophisticated by comparison, or the mystery of how Mike is able to casually consume 4,500 calories at each meal.

No, we’re talking about the haphazard, slapdash way the show seems to be assembled this season,

Jersey Shore Family Vacation 2 — as it’s officially known — was a rush job inspired by the success of its predecessor, and frankly — it often shows.

Cast members come and go as they’re forced to attend to career and family obligations that were lined up before this season was hastily greenlit.

Scenes often seem to go on forever as producers attempt to convince us they’ve got a season’s worth of material despite the fact that we last checked in on our favorite guidos less than two months ago.

But perhaps the show’s biggest flaw these days is the fact that individual storylines often seem to be fabricated from whole cloth.

Take the ongoing “feud” between Snooki and Jenni, for example.

On social media, viewers have expressed confusion, as the main point of contention between these two seems to be that Snooki invited Angelina to Vegas — which makes little sense, as Jenni would be well aware that her friend did so out of professional obligation.

(Love her or hate her, Angelina is good for drama, a fact the show’s producers are well aware of.)

In a recent interview with Buzzfeed, Snooks basically confirmed what viewers have long suspected — there is no Snooki vs. JWoww feud.

“The last episode, nothing made sense to us because we know exactly what happened,” she said.

“Sometimes editing, they try and leave stuff out, so they make it seem like something was there that wasn’t. We’re not scripted at all. We just go in there and do our thing, but we never know how they’re going to edit it.”

Snooki added:

“We aren’t scripted. But what does happen is the editing and how it comes off. That is not our control.

“I could be mad at Angelina but they can make it look like I’m mad at Jenni. I’m like, that’s not even what’s going on.”

She went on to clarify that Jenni’s decision to head home to her family had nothing to do with the drama on the show:

“I got upset for Jenni because she left for her son, because her son had a doctor appointment, but they made it seem like she left because she was mad that I invited Joey and Angelina,”

“So Jenni is not a bully, leave her alone,” Snooki added.

“The editing really screws her up.”

Obviously, this is far from the first time that MTV’s editors have come under fire for manipulating footage.

But we hope at the end of the day, those airing their grievances understand that this is the nature of reality TV — and for the most part, viewers are well aware of that.

America’s Got Talent Season 13: Did the Right Contestant Win?

A magician never reveals his tricks.

But a magician has now revealed what it feels like to be crowned the winner of America’s Got Talent…

3 agt contestants

… because Shin Lim took home that honor on Wednesday night.

With 10 finalists battling it out on stage until the final vote, Season 13 came down to Lim and singing group Zurcaroh, with the self-taught 26-year old eventually coming out on top.

Much to his own complete shock.

“I can’t speak right now,” Lim said after he was named the champion and tackled his fellow finalists.

They all picked him up and put them on their shoulders after the announcement was made.

“When you told me at 16 that an awkward, shy kid would one day be performing at the Dolby Theatre performing on America’s Got Talent, I wouldn’t have believed them,” he added.

“To compete on AGT, it means the world to me.”

The very impressive magician not only took home the $ 1 million prize — but will also headline the America’s Got Talent Live stage at the Paris Theater in Las Vegas from November 2-4.

Lim’s parents hail from Singapore.

He was born in Canada and currently lives in Acton, Massachusetts and he blew viewers away through sleight of hand magic and close-up tricks.

For his finale, Lim performed a card trick with host Tyra Banks and American Ninja Warrior co-hosts Matt Iseman and Akbar Gbaja-Biamila.

At various points in the competition, Howie Mandel and Simon Cowell called Lim “the best close-up magician they have ever seen.”

(He’s second magician to win America’s Got Talent, following Mat Franco on Season 9.)

yay Shin Lim

At age 20, four years after the started to learn the art of magic, Lim was diagnosed with carpal tunnel syndrome.

This forced him to gave up his piano career, as he dropped out of the School of Music at Lee University in Tennessee and put all his time and effort into his aspiring magic career.

After perfecting a number of tricks simply by studying YouTube videos, Lim appeared twice on Penn Jillette and Teller’s magic competition show, Penn & Teller: Fool Us, in 2015 and 2017.

He also took his talents overseas, including gigs in Australia, Canada, China, France, Germany, Hong Kong, Malaysia, New Zealand, Scandinavia, Singapore, Spain, Sweden, and Taiwan.

After his victory, Lim said he took Cowell’s advice to heart and moved away from the card table to make his show appear even bigger and more dazzling.

He’s thankful to the judge for offering up this tidbit and pushing him toward the grand prize.

“I learned so much going away from the table. It’s harder because it’s something I’m uncomfortable with. So, I really feel like I now have the confidence to build on it,” he said.

The finale performance “was my way of growing as a magician, and I think I’m going to follow that path of getting bigger and having a full show.”

Congratulations to Shin Lim!

Do you think he deserved to win? 

Or do you remain shocked that singer Courtney Hadwin didn’t go all the way?

Modern Family to Kill Off Major Character on Season 10

Some may say that Modern Family is the funniest show on television.

But there will be nothing funny about one of the upcoming storylines on Season 10 of the beloved ABC program.

According to co-creator Christopher Lloyd, the first half of the upcoming season will feature a significant character death.

That’s certainly something new for the series.

“We’re handling some bigger life events in this season,” Lloyd told Entertainment Weekly today, adding as a tease:

“We do deal with a death, which is certainly a topic that families have to deal with, and on television, it’s not easy to do because that’s a heavy subject. But at the same time, it would seem unusual for a family not to go through it.”

As you might expect, Lloyd isn’t about to divulge the identity of the corpse.

But he does say that it will “significant character on the series” and the death “will be a moving event – and an event that has repercussions across several episodes.”

members in shock

Modern Family stars Ed O’Neill, Ty Burrell, Julie Bowen, Jesse Tyler Ferguson, Eric Stonestreet, Ariel Winter, Sarah Hyland, Rico Rodriguez, Nolan Gould and Aubrey Anderson-Emmon.

It has maintained the same cast throughout its duration on the air.

It also set a record by winning five straight Outstanding Comedy Series Emmy Awards.

The sitcom is heading into its final contractual season, meaning this very well could be the show’s final season.

Lloyd, however, hopes this won’t be the case.

“There’s goodwill on both sides to make it happen, but there’s also complicated matters that have to get worked through, and there’s a time constraint on it, because we can’t have it take too long,” he says. 

“I’m hoping that that doesn’t make the whole thing go away, but I think there’s a decent chance we’ll see it happen.”

Lloyd continued as follows:

“From our standpoint creatively we’ve gotten excited writing this season and changing the lives of the characters – some in a significant way – and it’s made us think, ‘Wow, there’s a lot to explore in the lives of these characters.’

“They’re in many ways such different characters than they were five or 10 years ago when we started and they’re just as interesting and just as funny. So our standpoint was, ‘Well, if we can do another season, we may as well.’

“I’m hoping that we have some news on that [soon], and if it winds up that we tried and just couldn’t make it work, we will have a great final season for sure.”

Modern Family Season 10 premieres on Wednesday, September 26 at 9/8c.

Our best guess is that Phil’s father, played by the amazing Fred Willard, is the one who kicks the proverbial bucket.

As for what else fans can expect from upcoming episodes?

He told EW the following:

“There is a significant change in the dynamics of the family that people maybe thought was going to happen at some point down the line that is happening sooner than expected.”

Grey’s Anatomy Season 15 Trailer: Meet the Hot New Docs!

Grey's Anatomy will be featuring quite a few changes on Season 15.

But at least one thing will remain the same:

The doctors at the center of this long-running series will NOT exactly be difficult on the eyes.

A pair of cases in point:

As previously reported, neither Sarah Drew nor Jessica Capshaw will reprise their roles (as April Kepner and Arizona Robbins, respectively) ths fall, but producers are looking to fill these holes with the newbies pictured above.

The official preview highlighted on this page shows actors Chris Carmack and Alex Landi strolling into the hospital as two handsome physicians, along with a female patient lying in bed.

“Oh, my God,” she gushes as they enter her room.

Speaking of bed, the concept of entering (sorry) and a woman expressing awe/satisfaction… it also looks like Meredith will be getting a new love interest on Season 15.

This is the main takeaway from the trailer for most fans.

At the conclusion of this trailer – which teases a two-part season premiere with "one jaw-dropping twist" – Ellen Pompe's Meredith seems rather flustered around Dr. Andrew DeLuca (Giacomo Gianniotti).

Yes, she shot him down last season.

But this season? All we know is that the footage flashes to scenes of the two making out between the sheets.

Elsewhere, Kim Raver’s Teddy Altman appears, announcing she’s “11 weeks pregnant,” as Dr. Maggie Pierce (played by Kelly McCreary) looks at her in disbelief.

We can't wait to see how this storyline develops.

Grey’s Anatomy Season 15 premieres on ABC on Thursday, September 27, at 8/7c.

In a recent interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Drew said the following about her unexpected departure:

"I was told that the show had too many characters. And that they needed to downsize because they couldn’t service all of the characters effectively…

"It was really hard to hear that.

"But [producer Krista Vernoff] had a lot of very complimentary things to say about the work that I had done – especially this past season – and that April was going to have her happy ending."

We'll miss April for sure.

But we're still psyched to find out what's in store in Seattle on Season 15.

Check out the new footage now!

Pretty Little Mamas Season 1 Episode 2 Recap: Short and Sweet

The Pretty Little Mamas have been getting their fair share of hate online ever since the series debuted last week. 

But things took a crazy turn on Pretty Little Mamas Season 1 Episode 2 when this Pretty Little Liars and Teen Mom mash-up threw some Mean Girls into the mix. 

If you watch Pretty Little Mamas online, you know that the series premiere concluded with a blowout fight between Nikki and Nicole after the former brought some uninvited guests to a party. 

Nikki, who was still upset at the way Nicole treated her and her friends, dropped the bomb that there were a bunch of “burn book” websites that dragged Nicole through the mud. 

The person who told Nikki all about it was Nicole’s cousin. What happened to family first? That thought seemed to be lost on the cousin who told Nikki that Nicole’s father managed to get most of the websites shut down. 

There was still one site floating around the internet, and it did not exactly paint Queen B Nicole in the best light. 

Nikki took this news to Cheyenne, who subsequently took the news to Nicole. Nikki wanted to be the one to tell Nicole, presumably to try and get back in her good books. 

But for Nicole, this was yet another heinous act from Nikki. Nicole felt like Nikki was trying to sabotage her by not telling her about the website first. 

Nicole went on to say that Nikki was just as bad as the person who wrote the website. The reason? Because Nikki should have told her about it. 

Sigh. 

Nicole is just one of those reality stars who thinks everything is about her. She’s the Kristin Cavallari of this narrative. 

When Nikki finally got to meet up with Nicole, she seemed ecstatic to get to tell the Queen B everything. Oh yes, Nikki had no idea Cheyenne already told their friend about it. 

What followed was the verbal beat down of Nikki. This tame reality series graduated into the big leagues with Nicole yelling at Nikki about being trash for not going to her first. 

All poor Nikki could do was sit down and accept the fact that she was never going to be part of this mean girl’s clique ever again. 

The final few minutes were some of the craziest to hit reality TV in quite some time, but the true test will be whether the series can maintain the momentum. 

We are so in if Nikki goes on a plan to knock Nicole off her pedestal. 

Aside from that, there’s not much to like about this series. The stars desperately trying to ramp up the action for the cameras. 

It feels forced, awkward and scripted all at the same time.

The Real Housewives of New York Season 10 Episode 22 Recap: Bethenny Frankel vs. Carole Radziwill

It was the end of the line for Bethenny Frankel and Carole Radziwill on The Real Housewives of New York Season 10 Episode 22, as the two women admitted it was time to move on. 

Radziwill was quick to reveal that Bethenny’s harsh comments about her in the confessionals were too hurtful to move on from. 

“The season made it over for me,” she told Frankel on Wednesday’s finale.

“When you watch the confessional interviews, I’m seeing what you said about me. About not having a job, not having a husband…”

“I didn’t understand until I watched the show and I realized I was really, really trying to salvage our friendship and you didn’t seem that interested,” Radziwill continued. 

“And I only can imagine because you knew what you had said at all those confessional interviews.”

“I was trying all season to come back from this,” Radziwill said of Bethenny’s comments. 

“At the end, I was like, ‘Thank god we’re done with this season. Thank god we can go back. We can just regroup.’ And then I started watching the show…”

All of the above suggests that Radzwill was on board for another season of the Bravo hit, but it looks like things changed once she watched the season back. 

Bethenny’s comments “made me sad but also angry,” the departing cast member said.

For Frankel, Radziwill was just as bad what with her blog post and Instagram live to bash Bethenny. 

“The season would not have made it over,” Frankel said. “The bashing with the blogs and the bashing with a friend made it over. … It was really mean.”

Bethenny continued to claim that Carole had changed and that was the reason for the dunking of their relationship. 

“You’ve changed too,” Radziwill fired back. “You’ve become catty and gossipy. I didn’t change.

With this being Radziwill’s final episode, she did open up about her biggest regret: Not patching things up with Frankel. 

“My regret was that Bethenny and I could never get to a place where… I thought maybe by the end of the season we would be speaking and then reconnect,” Radziwill said.

“Because that friendship was important to me. And that never happened.” “I wish that we had had some kind of conversation so we could have put it into context,” she added.

“It was just hard. I tried. That’s my regret, that I failed.”

At the top of the episode, Carole got into it with Andy. He was furious that she said he was “full of shit.” 

Andy has the power to hire and fire on this franchise, so he was likely shocked at the way she spoke to him. 

Carole claimed Andy was scared of Bethenny Frankel, to which he replied:

“Yeah, I’m scared of her.”

It was ridiculous, but the most telling moment was Andy asking Carole about her regret from the season.

“Is yours telling me I’m full of shit?” he said with a serious look on his face. 

Could this be the REAL reason Carole is out of the series? 

As for the way this reunion concluded?

Tears. Lots of tears. 

Bethenny turned to look at Dorinda upon being asked what her biggest regret is, and said the following. 

“My biggest regret of the season is if I did say, ‘a drunk’ — because you and I heard it the same way when we saw it on TV — but if I called you ‘a drunk,’ I regret saying that to you on television.”

“Thank you, Bethenny,” Dorinda replied while crying. “That actually means a lot.”

“But I will say for the record, in the moment, we both heard it: ‘You’re drunk,'” Bethenny added. “But anyway, I own what was on the show, and that’s fine, and that’s my regret.”

“Um, I think — that actually means a lot to me,” Dorinda said, pointing at Bethenny. 

“It’s so stupid — it’s at the end of the show,” Dorinda continued, before meeting Bethenny for a hug. “It means the world to me.”

“I tried to be as compassionate as I could while I was there,” Bethenny replied. “And I saw it, and I was like, ‘Oof,’ you know? I really did.”

Dorinda then admitted she could not answer, and Andy moved on to Tinsley. 

She admitted that she was mad at herself for shouting “Shut your mouth and shut your f–king legs!” at Sonja. 

Sonja claimed she also regretted “opening that wound” with Tinsley. 

And that’s another season in the can!

What do you think of the conclusion?

The Walking Dead Season 9: What’s About to Go Down?

The Walking Dead Season 9 premieres on AMC on Sunday, October 7 at 9/8c.

It will feature the final run of episodes by Andrew Lincoln as Rick Grimes, as the actor shocked fans by announcing his departure from the beloved series this summer.

"I love this show. It means everything to me. I love the people who make this show," Lincoln said at Comic-Con in July, adding at the time:

"I promise not to cry, I've done enough crying on screen. I'm particularly fond of the people who watch this show…

"This has been the most extraordinary, amazing, and beautiful experience of my career, and largely, because of you guys and the relationship we have here with you in this room and also rooms across America and the rest of the world."

Will Rick be killed off? It's very safe to assume.

But we get no indication in the official AMC synopsis of just how Rick will say goodbye.

Scroll down for a look at how the network is teasing the upcoming season; via this official summary and then a bevy of gorgeous character photos…

1. The Synopsis Begins as Follows…

Season9 trio
Last season brought the culmination of “All Out War,” which pitted Rick Grimes and his group of survivors against the Saviors and their cunning leader, Negan. With Negan’s life in his hands, Rick had a character-defining choice in front of him. By making the unilateral decision to spare Negan, Rick upheld the values his late son, Carl, championed in order to build for the future, but created conflict within his group…

2. It Continues:

Twd art
Now, we see our survivors a year and a half after the end of the war, rebuilding civilization under Rick’s steadfast leadership. It is a time of relative peace among the communities as they work together, looking to the past to forge the future, but the world they knew is rapidly changing as man-made structures continue to degrade, and nature takes over, changing the landscape and creating new challenges for our survivors…

3. And It Continues:

Season 9 art
As time passes, the communities confront unexpected obstacles, danger, and of course, walkers, but nothing quite prepares them for the formidable force they are about to encounter, which threatens the very idea of civilization that our survivors have worked so hard to build.

4. Ready for a Look at the Main Players?

The season 9 logo
AMC has shared the following collection of pretty awesome character/actor/actress photos in anticipation of Season 9. Check them out below!
