Battle of The New Jersey Housewives

Last week I learned that Danielle Staub would be hosting the premiere of The Real Housewives of New Jersey at Barracuda in Chelsea. This week I learned that Dina Manzo will be hosting the premiere at Splash in Chelsea. This raised two questions.

I'm just saying.

A&E
Rythm Is Gonna Get You (A Star on the Vegas Walk of Stars, That Is)

Gloria Estefan has received so many awards during her three decades in the limelight that there is an entire Wikipedia page dedicated just to listing them. And now Vegas has added another honor to the acclaimed performer.

On April 29, The Las Vegas Walk of Stars presented Gloria and her husband Emilio, the former band leader of Miami Sound Machine, with their own star. This is the first time a couple has ever been jointly recognized on the walkway.

A&E
Criss Angel Named Magician of the Century

Criss Angel is no stranger to making history. He holds multiple world records including longest time submerged underwater (24 hours) and longest body suspension (5 hours and 42 minutes). He has been named Magician of the Year five times, more than any other magician, and was the first to ever be declared Magician of the Decade by the International Magicians Society.

Now, the illusionist has one-upped himself yet again. Last night, the Mindfreak star was honored with the title of Magician of the Century at the end of his second performance of Believe.

AUDRINA PATRIDGE
Are We Over 'The Hills?'

When we last saw our Hills' cast mates, Kristen Cavallari and Justin Bobby were going to give their relationship a real try, Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt mutually agreed to wait to have children, Audrina Patridge and Kristen still hated each other (because of Cavallari's relationship with Audrina's former flame Justin Bobby) and Brody Jenner broke up with his girlfriend Jade Nicole because he still had feelings for Kristen. Ah, the drama!

CUT TO: The six season opener and the last season of The Hills. Kristen, Audrina, Stephanie Pratt and Lo Bosworth are headed to Miami for a girl's trip. Um... when exactly did these chicks become chummy? The Hills, a spinoff of Laguna Beach, originally centered around the life of Lauren Conrad (until Conrad said ‘no more' and split after five seasons). No matter how fake this show has been in the past, it was always good at one thing, transitions.

Post-Break-up Paris Goes to Rehab, Celebrates Vanity

Paris isn't letting the dissolution of her 14-month relationship with Doug Reinhardt get her down. This is the second time we've seen the heiress in Las Vegas in the past few weeks.

It was during her last trip here that the rumors regarding Paris' supposed relationship with Kim Kardashian's ex Reggie Bush surfaced. The two both were at two Vegas birthday parties that weekend for Mark Sudach and Jason Strauss where they apparently shared champagne and more But eye-witness Robin Leach assures that the couple didn't even speak to each other, and I'd believe Robin if he told me Johnny Weir was straight. That's how reliable he is.

AFENI SHAKUR
Afeni Shakur Arrested on Drug Charges

News just hit that the late rapper Tupac Shakur's mother Afeni Shakur, age 63, was arrested on April 16th and charged with felony possession of marijuana in Lumberton, California.

Other charges include maintaining a vehicle, dwelling/place for controlled substance and simple possession of a controlled substance. She is out of jail on a $10,000 bond and is set to appear in court on May 10th.

[Editor's Note: In the 70s, Shakur defended herself in court during a bomb conspiracy trial and was acquitted of 156 counts against her. I think she can handle this]

Predicting the Party: Joel McHale & Donald Glover

This Friday, April 30 Community stars Joel McHale and Donald Glover are performing at Mandalay Bay. These two hysterical hotties are both on my list of future boyfriends, so I obviously have spent a lot of time thinking about where to best stalk them during there time here in Sin City. I actually met Donald once, too so I already have an ice breaker prepared. He told me I was a "sexy Fievel" for Halloween, words which I cherish and shall be proudly displayed as my tombstone epitaph. I also know Joel is happily married with two kids, but what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas right?

JESSE JAMES
Sandra Bullock Files for Divorce and Adopts a Baby

Sandra Bullock blows People's "World's Most Beautiful People 2010" out of the water with her cover featuring her newly adopted son Louis Bardo Bullock and information about her divorce with Jesse James. This is the first time Bullock has opened up about the issue since the news of his affair with Michelle Bombshell McGee.

Bullock's new baby boy, Louis Bardo Bullock is 3 ½ months old and was born in New Orleans. Apparently Sandy and Jesse have been going through the adoption process for four years and since she has officially filed for divorce, Bullock is ready to conquer single parenthood. "He's just perfect, I can't even describe him any other way," she said about baby Louis. "It's like he's always been a part of our lives." [People]

BROADWAY
Road To The Old South: Memphis

In the shadows of segregation and under the biased fears of ignorant misunderstanding, the cast of Memphis spectacularly illuminates the charisma of the 1950's South through the underground sounds of early rock and roll. It is the wind blown love story of country boy barfly turned national television DJ, Huey Calhoun and the woman he loves, Felicia Farrell, a "race music" celebrity from the other side of town. The colorful story of black versus white and the cosmic realignment of the soul through a new age of music captivates awestruck audiences in Manhattan's world-famous theatre district each night at the Shubert Theatre.

BARRACUDA
I Can Meet Danielle Staub? Are You Serious

Danielle Staub of The Real Housewives of New Jersey will be at Barracuda on May 3rd to watch the premiere of the new season.

The event will be hosted by Michael Musto and Peppermint. Don't act like you don't want to go.
