SHOCKED.

NOT! So, it has been reported that Ben Higgins and Lauren Bushnell have finally stopped pretending to be in love. The two put out a statement with PEOPLE  saying that they have decided to go their separate ways. We all saw this coming, I mean no one is seriously surprised by this… are they?

Ben’s season was actually the first season I have ever watched of The Bachelor so I took it very seriously (SHAMEFUL). Anway, I was a Jojo fan and was so hurt – just like Jojo – when he sent her home IN THE WORST WAY POSSIBLE! As soon as he picked Lauren I knew they were never going to last – not because I hated her (because I do) but because when they were together it was SO FAKE.

I even watched that- less than entertaining –  FreeForm show, I mean it hurt me to watch. It was so incredibly boring that they had to bring in other former contestants from the show – it didn’t help much. The show made it even more clear these two were just not to be but hey I’d stay in a relationship for a check *Kanye shrug*.

All I am looking forward to is Lauren’s tell – all book about how much she hates Jojo and feel Ben never got over her. Also, would LOVE it if she caught him stalking Jojo and Jordans Instagram. I am sure Lauren is upset but once Chris Harrison calls her with a book deal those tears will dry up!

Hey Mercury… BYE GIRL

Y’all it is about MF time – I mean I am not sure I could take anymore! Between my stomach virus two weeks ago and my hangover this past weekend, Mercury really had me F’ed up!!!! I am so happy that is officially May and can start off fresh this month.

WHICH MEANS #FIRSTDAYINMAY aka Met Gala Monday PEOPLE! Can you tell how pumped I am??? We all know how I love a red carpet, so this is probably the best day of my life. Being that mercury is OUT of retrograde this means I should be able to enjoy tonights red carpet without any interruptions, correct? Probably not but here is to hoping!

Two years ago I was one of those super fans freaks who stood outside waiting to see people walk the red carpet outside the MET. Even though I got some AMAZE shots and saw a ton of celebs – I WILL NEVER DO IT AGAIN. Thankfully, ENews will be covering the MET Gala red carpet for the first time LIVE! See, I told y’all this month was going to be 10x better!!!

So, get ready for a great month since last TOTALLY sucked! And to start off May right go take a listen to my new podcast episode on iTunes! Don’t worry I have a guest this week and we talk all about Vanderpump Rules!

Read More.

With everything going on in the world is it nice to just escape and go to a different place. I usually do that with my TV shows but sometimes I need a break.

I am sure it is hard to believe that a girl so obsessed and consumed with pop culture, reality tv and fashion enjoys reading. BUT SURPRISE, I do – actually I have made a goal for myself this year to read 15 books and I am up to 7. SO yeah, you can say I’m some kind of genius… NOT.

giphy1

Anyway, here are a few of my favorite books I think you all will enjoy!

  • Luckiest Girl Alive 
    • I finished this book in a week! Such a page turner – the beginning is a little slow but once it picks up it doesn’t slow down until the last page.
  • Maybe In Another Life 
    • This book gave me so many feelings about life and planning for the future. It was my first read of 2017. If you are already getting ready for summer and picking beach reads this is one! It has it all: love, friendship, heartbreak, loss –  EVERYTHING.
  • Good As Gone 
    • Talk about ANXIETY – basically Jon Benet if she would have lived…. too soon? Whatever,  this book focuses on kidnapping and a mother’s lost connection with her daughter.
  • In a Dark, Dark Wood
    • A girl at work told me to read this and I am so glad I listened! Bachelorette party, love triangle and murder????? What more can you ask for?!

Give these books a try and add them to your reading list,  you will not be disappointed and if you are… oh well. Also, if you enjoy reading and keeping up with your books, GoodReads is a great website! You can add all the books you have read/are reading while looking for your next book and checking reviews.

Enjoy y’all,

Sorry Julia Roberts, but NO!

Let me just start out by saying how much I LOVE Julia Roberts. I mean she is the queen of rom-com’s to me – Pretty Woman, Runaway Bride, My Best Friends Wedding AND the iconic Steel Magnolias.  I could go on but you get the gist – with that being said Julia should not be PEOPLE’s 2017 World’s Most Beautiful Woman.  Now what I am about to say might not be that nice but it is the TRUTH!

tumblr_mlxrhu5kb61s69kmho1_500

So don’t get me wrong Julia Roberts is a vision BUT we can do better! To me she is not the most beautiful woman of 2017 – is she even on the radar at the moment?  What’s the last thing she has even done … Mother’s Day ( which I  actually watched this weekend and it was HORRIBLE – funny tho). Anyway, the point I am trying to make is that we have SO MANY women in 2017 that have made impacts that would have been better and made more sense.

tumblr_oobkg7rsrk1vrjwbvo1_500

Who do you ask? Oh, I don’t know – Viola Davis, Traci Ellis Ross, Connie Britton, Sarah Paulson… should I go on? NO, because you get it – there are other women out there besides JULIA FREAKING ROBERTS. And not to mention this is her FIFTH time on the cover for the most beautiful woman. So that in itself shows that she shouldn’t be this year’s pick.

I just wish PEOPLE would have put A LOT more thought into this instead of recycling past cover girls. It is 2017 we have MORE THAN ENOUGH options for women to choose from – DO BETTER PEOPLE, DO BETTER!!

Trust and believe I will discuss this more on next weeks podcast… stay tuned!

The Hills: Pregnancy 101

I have said it before and I will say it again… I am OBSESSED WITH THE HILLS! By far on of the best TV shows- whether it was scripted or not. And if it was it deserved every Emmy and Golden Globe.

Anyway – it has been 10 years since the show ended and we I find myself looking for a reunion, spin-off – honestly, ANYTHING to have LC,  Heidi, Whitney, Audrina and the rest of the gang all on my screen again. By now I think we finally have something – BABIES! Half of the cast is freaking pregnant.

Lauren Conrad was the first to announce her pregnancy via Instagram – that in itself had people bouncing off the walls. I mean we could have an LC jr. on our hand’s guys!!!! Then Whitney followed ( from what I recall a few days or a week later) that she herself was pregnant! What are the odds that both Teen Vogue interns are preggers at the SAME DAMN TIME? A month or two later Jason ( LC’s ex) announced that his wife/gf/ IDGAF who she is… BUT she is carrying a child as well.

TO TOP IT ALL OFF – last week, Speidi announced that they are FINALLY pregnant. I mean we are being PUNK’d right?? WTF Ashton come out already I am totally on to you! Anway, I feel that this calls for a celebration or a reunion at best, am I right? With Audrina almost a year into being a mother and Kristen already with 3 kids ( GOD BLESS HER), how can we not bring them all together? I even think I heard that Heidi’s sister ( the wannabe hills star) Holly had a baby a few years ago. And I guess we can invite Lo along for the ride… Sorry, Lo!

I think we all need to write into MTV until they give us what we deserve! Because of whatever that anniversary special – the long Kohls commercial for Lauren’s clothing line –  we got this summer from them was BS! Give us a redo MTV… we need it, we want it and we have all earned it!

If you want to hear more about The Hills cast and all things this week in pop culture, take a listen to my podcast… here!

Stop Blaming Kendall Jenner

Okay, so by now we have ALL seen the cringe-worthy Pepsi ad featuring Kendall Jenner. If you haven’t seen it by now you are basically SOL because Pepsi has taken it down because of all the backlash the commercial has gotten thus far.

In my honest opinion, the 2 minute Pepsi commercial was not THAT BAD but those last 30 seconds is really what sent people over the edge and I TOTALLY UNDERSTAND. Kendall handing over the Pepsi to the mall cop that was supposed to be a police office was just bad not because he was a cop but because of who she is, sadly. I am sure Pepsi had nothing but good intentions – things just didn’t go as planned or maybe they did and that is the problem.

Speaking of the problem, Kendall Jenner is not that! Pepsi is, it was their creative team, their idea and so on. YES, Kendall is 21 years old and maybe could have a better judgment call BUT if Pepsi offers you a GLOBAL commercial with a VERY high check are you going to turn it down? I didn’t think so. SO STOP blaming Kendall and blame the people who made this entire commercial possible… PEPSI.

If you would like to know more of my thoughts on this situation go take a listen to my podcast this week,  here!
