Next Season on The Hills: More of Spencer Pratt's Sister

Next season of The Hills will feature more air time for Stephanie Pratt, Spencer's sister, who seems like a bigger loser than Spencer. The picture to the left is her mugshot for shoplifting and drug charges.

More Reaction to Gene Simmons' Firing on Celebrity Apprentice

My own view on Gene Simmons' approach to Celebrity Apprentice was that he wasn't getting paid much to do the show, so he probably just wanted to go on for a few weeks, create some buzz and have Donald Trump fire him in a blaze of glory before he could become stale to the audience. Whether you like or dislike KISS, you can't say those guys don't know showmanship. He has mastered the George Costanza art of leaving while you're on top.

CNBC has an interview with Gene Simmons done by Jim Cramer, who was a guest judge with Ivanka.

Perhaps I'm in the minority for liking Gene in general and on the Celebrity Apprentice in particular, as the blogosphere seems glad he's gone. See here, here and here, for example.

Here is a poll asking if people think Gene wanted to be fired.

Update on Spencer Pratt and Heidi Montag

Here is the latest news on fake couple Spencer Pratt and Heidi Montag, or "MTV-reality-scum" as LAist calls them. They made an appearance at the premiere of Cloverfield, and Heidi looked like she has had more plastic surgery. Spencer hit on other girls while Heidi was talking, but he later denied that to US Magazine (he's so trustworthy). They partied in Canada -- pictures here, here, and here.

Donald Trump is an Idiot for Firing Gene Simmons

Donald Trump fired Gene Simmons on Celebrity Apprentice last night. Amazingly stupid move on his part. With Gene gone, ratings will plummet. The women on the show have no star power or personality, and the men (except for Gene) aren't that special. I highly doubt that Tito Ortiz really has a multibillion dollar company, as he kept whining in episode two. I think The Donald was worried that Gene is The Man and that he was becoming the alpha male of the show over Trump himself, so he fired him to avoid having one of the contestants be more popular than him.

Britney Spears is a Mess

Britney Spears never ceases to amaze me with her ability to take her life to a new low. Between the pointless driving around town for smokes and Red Bulls with the paparazzi in tow, the slutty behavior with loser guys, the pregnancy test shopping, the AP having her obituary ready in case she passes away soon, etc., she has been a complete train wreck lately. Here is what Britney Spears needs to do to get her life back together. America loves celebrities who turn themselves around (or even those who pretend to do so). If she would just take a shower, stop sleeping around so much, act like a good mother to her children and otherwise get her act together, she could be liked again.

Are Spencer and Heidi Re-Engaged?

Spencer Pratt and Heidi Montag staged a fake shopping trip for engagement rings, and then she appeared in public last night with a ring on her left finger. I think this is a scam to keep them in the news. (Hat tip: Backseat).
