LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- Your Daily Dispatch of Celebrity Shenanigans
Fantasia’s Reality Show To Be Reworked: Following Fantasia’s overdose on Monday a rep for VH1 told Access Hollywood that the premiere episode of the second season of the singer’s reality show, “Fantasia For Real,” will be reworked. VH1, which was not filming during the incident, told Access, “[The] premiere episode will be changing. At this moment production hasn’t decided what will change, it’s too soon for us to speak to how these events will change her show creative but Fantasia is an open book so its going to play a part in our series somehow just can’t speak to how exactly.” We hope that Fantasia is back to her old self soon – and by “old self” we mean the artist that turned out this performance from an episode of “American Idol” in 2008. The look on Simon Cowell’s face at the 3:00 minute mark says it all! Season 2 of “Fantasia For Real” premieres on VH1 on September 19 10 PM.
UPDATE: On Wednesday afternoon, VH1 issued a revised statement to Access Hollywood, noting that they had not yet made a decision regarding what will happen with Fantasia’s reality show.
“At this moment it’s too soon for us to speak to how these events will change the show and or if anything will be re-worked for the premiere of VH1’s ‘Fantasia For Real,’” the revised statement read.
George Vs. Gaga!: In some pot calling the kettle black news, Boy George is slamming Lady Gaga for her recent cocaine use admission. “If Lady Gaga were about to be exposed as a drug user I would understand her recent confession to Vanity Fair that she is an ‘occasional’ coke sniffer. But why offer up this information on a whim? Could it be that her use of coke is not so ‘occasional?’” Boy George said in a recent blog post for Paper Magazine. “As a recovering addict who knows how dangerous ‘occasional’ use is, I can think of no reason for Gaga to reveal this to her young audience. My mum had the best take on this, ‘she’s reached the stage where she feels untouchable, you all get there – you did, son.’” Boy George went on to add, “One has to wonder how much of a grip Gaga has on things. Up until now she has seemed almost annoyingly professional and focused and this seems out of character! Isn’t saying your an ‘occasional’ drug taker a bit like saying you’re bisexual? That usually means you’re raving!” We’ll assume Gaga might raise a certain finger directed towards Boy George following these comments.
Stephanie Pratt’s Big Love: After a public Twitter breakup with motocross star Josh Hansen, Stephanie Pratt is reportedly doing double duty when it comes to guys. “I’m seeing two guys right now,” she told People on Tuesday. “And it’s actually way more fun than seeing one guy. I’ve never done something like this before, but it’s really quite lovely!” We’re not sure how lovely the two guys think this is, but at least there’s one happy Pratt out there!
Does The “Housewife” Lesbian Charade Continue?: “The Real Housewives Of New Jersey’s” Danielle Staub kept the lesbian guessing game going on Tuesday night while on the red carpet for her birthday party at Scores in New York City. The reality starlet was rather cozy with her “Real Close” singing partner/rumored girlfriend, Lori Michaels. See the duo in action, HERE! Having your birthday party at a strip club Danielle? We love that you always keeping it classy!
