Salon opening attracts young Hollywood stars & popular beauty bloggers

I was at the opening of Organic Shimmer Spray Tan Salon in Los Angeles, where teenage actresses mingled with music up-and-comers and some of YouTube’s most popular beauty bloggers…

The Walking Dead star Brighton Sharbino and her sister Saxon Sharbino, former Pussycat Doll J Sutta, and more chatted exclusively with me. Plus model Carissa Rosario talks about her new jewelry line, and the young cancer victim who inspired it.

Vanderpump Rules season 5 is coming!

[UPDATE: 3/25/16] One of the fulltime cast members from all four seasons reached out to me after seeing this interview. They wanted me to know that season 5 is not confirmed. It also sounds as if Faith and Jesse’s futures with the show is questionable, even if there is another season. The supposed drama between those new to the cast and the OGs may also just be an attempt by the newbies to establish a storyline for themselves. Stay tuned!!

Last night’s season 4 reunion of Vanderpump Rules was truly explosive. So it’s no surprise the cast is already gearing up to shoot Vanderpump Rules season 5…

I talked to newbies Faith Stowers and Jesse Montana, who revealed that shooting will begin in May. While you didn’t see much of Faith or Jesse this time around, the duo assured me that they’re ready to take over the series. Their lack of screen time is reportedly due to original cast members Jax Taylor, Kristen Doute, Tom Sandoval and Scheana Shay protesting against their new co-stars.

One rookie we did see a lot of, Lala Kent, may be getting a new love interest in Vanderpump Rules season 5. Roll the video to see who wants to hook up with the model/hostess.

James Kennedy has a new girl, calls Vanderpump Rules reunion “emotional”

James Kennedy is notorious for hooking up with his co-stars on Vanderpump Rules. But has the Hollywood DJ finally settled down?

He was proudly clutching the arm of Miss Sonoma County USA, Raquel Leviss, at an appearance for Los Angeles Fashion Week. I spoke to James and his beauty queen about their first night together and whether she’s been introduced to Lala Kent, Kristen Doute or any of James’ other exes.

While James is eager to tell fans about his relationship and new album, he plays it coy when asked if another season of Vanderpump Rules is in the works. While calling the upcoming season four reunion “painful” and “emotional,” he claims the show hasn’t been picked up for another season. But fear not, fans! I also talked to Pump Rules newbie Faith Stowers, who insisted season five is already in the works.

Stay tuned for that interview too! Follow me on Twitter @CHRISTYreports for all the latest exclusives.

Tour Group star Michelle Harvey reveals betrayal by former BFF Brandi Glanville

Tour Group breakout sensation Michelle Harvey visits Maria Menounos’ AfterBuzz TV, dishing the details on her history with The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star and former friend Brandi Glanville and setting the record straight on the drama that went down while filming Tour Group. Joining co-hosts Christy Olson and Lindsey Miller, Michelle reveals the story of former BFF Brandi marrying her ex-husband and how the difficult betrayal led to her taking a trip around the world on Bravo’s latest hit reality show.

Tour Group is only one episode in and already Michelle is stealing the show. The former model is confident that her large amount of screen time is because, “I’ve got a lot to say.” Michelle sets the record straight on her fight with married cast mates Jetta Bates Vasilatos and Jeff Vasilatos, after Jeff tells her to “eat a burger.” “Somebody came at me. If you come at me, you better be careful.”

This is not Michelle’s first shot at reality TV stardom. “I did a pilot show. It was called Model Behaviors. It was done years ago,” she says, revealing that future Real Housewives Brandi Glanville and Kristen Taekman were her cast mates. Michelle recalls nearly ending up on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills alongside Brandi, but declares it “would have been with a vicious, vicious person that doesn’t hold back, and there are children involved.” Referring to Brandi she adds, “Now it would be a different story, now that certain cast members are gone.”

Michelle’s history with her former friend includes Brandi marrying her ex-husband Darin Harvey after a night out in Las Vegas. “She did it just to spite me. It was ridiculous. I mean our friendship was twelve years.” Declaring, “This is very little known,” the Tour Group star elaborates on what went down and says, “I think that she got desperate. She thought she was going to be the next Mrs. Harvey, and so she did that.” Will we see these two outspoken reality stars hash it out anytime soon? “Look at the career that I’ve built and what I’m doing and look at the mess that she created. I don’t need to defend myself.”

The Mother/Daughter Experiment: Celebrity Edition

The Mother/Daughter Experiment: Celebrity Edition premieres next week on Lifetime, and the trailer is so outrageous that it warrants explanation…

And that’s exactly what I’m here for! Press play above for a full report on the cast, including Kim Richards from The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, Bad Girls Club star Natalie Nunn, Courtney Stodden, The HillsHeidi Montag, former Moesha actress and Hollywood Divas guest star Shar Jackson and Jessica Canseco, of Hollywood Exes fame.

That’s the violent altercation you see this season on Teen Mom.

Impact Wrestling Knockouts champion Gail Kim & Christy Hemme exclusive

Impact Wrestling is now on Pop TV, and new fans are flocking to the show every week. Knockouts champion Gail Kim and announcer Christy Hemme, both former WWE Divas, recently met with fans in Huntington Park, California, and I got to ask their thoughts on Daniel Bryan‘s retirement, the release of Awesome Kong and what’s in the future for both of these veteran ladies…

First, Gail Kim speaks on the women’s wrestling revolution, re-signing with WWE and if new Knockout Raquel was just paying her dues with severe injuries in a recent match…

On TNA’s new Pop TV deal: We’re so excited, because with Destination America a lot of people were kind of like, ‘Where is that and how can we watch?’ So we lost some viewers that way because they just didn’t know where to find us. Now with Pop TV we started great and every week is just getting stronger and stronger.

Knockouts’ role in the women’s wrestling revolution: I think there’s a women’s revolution happening everywhere, and I think we’ve been doing it for quite awhile. So I don’t feel like there’s been a change in the way we’ve handled or have been portrayed. But now it’s kind of leaking into the mainstream, and that’s mainly because of Rhonda Rousey from USC. She proved that she’s a draw. She can sell out pay-per-views. She can be the highest grossing female out there and that women can sell tickets. So that’s kind of leaked over into WWE and like I said, we’ve always kind of been doing it. I love it.
