HouseHusbands Of Hollywood News & Gossip!

Bringing you some news and gossip about the House Husbands of Hollywood. The Fox reality network show follows the lives of five men who happen to be househusbands. You can read more about the cast here.

Grant ReynoldsAspiring actor and husband of “Good Day LA” anchor Jillian Reynolds. Jillian and Grant are currently expecting their second child, a boy. A photo of a very pregnant Jillian is below.

Darryl M. BellThe former star of A Different World has been with girlfriend Tempest Bledsoe for 16 years. Tempest starred on The Cosby Show for years. In an interview with ET, the couple believes their relationship works because they are “very compatible.” They also have no plans to get married, though they are pro-marriage.

Danny BarclayAspiring actor Danny is married to Katherine Barclay who is described as a “high-powered attorney.” It’s been reported that Katherine works for a powerful law firm than only accepts the top 1% of law school graduates. She practices under her maiden name to allow her some privacy. Danny also seems to be getting some acting gigs lately as shown on his IMDB actor’s page.

Not much news to report on Charlie Mattera and Billy Ashley. Some of the fellas have twitter pages as listed below.

My thoughts on the showHousehusbands is one of those shows I had not planned on watching until I got hooked during a marathon. It’s a pretty decent show. It doesn’t have the drama factor as Bravo’s housewives’ series, but it is nonetheless entertaining to watch, as seeing life from the men’s prospectives is sometimes humorous.

I noticed some viewers are giving Jillian Barberie Reynolds a hard time, but I actually see things differently when it comes to Grant and Jillian. Grant seems to have a superior passive aggressive way about him while Jillian seems more laid back and wanting to avoid conflict. Grant’s behavior at the couple’s dinner party was a bit telling and unnecessary. He seems a bit controlling and tends to overact to the “little things.” He also needs to learn how to let things go, the way he went on and on and on and on about Jillian’s spending was draining to watch. He might have had a valid point but went about it the wrong way. I’m surprised these two are having another baby instead of heading to divorce court. They need a lot of help/counseling for their marriage to work. They seem very mismatched and sometimes act like they genuinely do not like each other.

Tempest and Darryl seem very stable. They do bicker quite a bit, but it seems mostly playful. Whatever they’re doing as a couple seems to be working for them.

Danny and Katherine are an interesting couple to watch. Bringing a baby into their current marital equation would definitely be a recipe for disaster. Danny does need to be more assertive as a husband. He needs to do something with his time while he tries to get the acting thing going. A part time job that allows him the flexibility to be an actor would be ideal. He needs to realize that he’s still the man of the house, and needs to bring home some bacon, no matter how little. Unlike most of the other husbands, he has no kids to take care of, nor does he help his wife with her job/business. If he continues to go his current route, it will only be a matter of time before Katherine begins to lose respect for him.

Billy and Lisa seem to have a stable and loving marriage though Lisa comes off as being annoying and self absorbed at times.

Charlie with the absentee wife, might want to stop mentioning just how unplanned his son’s birth was. We get it already! You went to Cabo and there came a baby 9 months later. Charlie otherwise seems like a loving father. The problem with filming reality shows is that everything you say and do is made permanently public.

Luke Conley Proposes To Tali On More To Love Finale

More To Love ended last night with the bachelor, Luke Conley, picking 26-year-old New York native Tali.

Luke, a 26-year-old real estate investor who weighs over 300 pounds, proposed to Tali, and she said yes during the 2 hour finale. Tali was chosen over runner up, Malissa.

More To Love’s format was similar to that of The Bachelor, but geared towards plus-size women looking for love.

No word yet on whether or not the couple is still together.

Who Is Your Favorite Atlanta Housewife?

The Real Housewives Of Atlanta never fails to amuse us in ways we never imagined. Whether it be the disgraceful display of Sheree and Kim on The Ellen Show or Sheree pulling Kim’s hair, the list goes on.

We placed a poll on our website a few weeks ago and the results have been really interesting. Surprisingly, NeNe Leakes is still your favorite Atlanta Housewife, though her popularity seems to be dwindling down in recent weeks. It seems the more you all have gotten to know Kandi Burruss, the more she is liked. Lisa and Kim are tied in the like-ability department.

Kandi is without a doubt my favorite Atlanta housewife, as her easygoing demeanor reminds me of Jacqueline from The Real Housewives of New Jersey. Nene has become a tad more obnoxious this season. She’s louder, meaner and her unprovoked jealousy towards Kandi is rather transparent. Sheree is more unlikeable this year, who knew that was possible? She comes of as being angry at the world, while still having major delusions of grandeur. Lisa is still Lisa, and Kim? Well her wig looks slightly better this season.

In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Antonio gave some juicy tidbits about the show. He claims he flat-out told producers he wouldn’t be having sex during the five-week production. His reason being“I don’t know where the girls are from, what kind of lifestyle they had. So it ain’t gonna happen. It’s my life. I have kids. I don’t want to die. I don’t want to catch anything.” How classy of him.

The article also reveals a girl got kicked off the show for slapping a producer. The girl’s identity is however not revealed, perhaps it might have been psychotic Sarah. Antonio also reveals he had no idea his ex-wife Tully would be on the show. “I haven’t seen her since I was 18; I’m 37. I had no idea that she was gonna be there,” he says.

The show wrapped up filming back in February. Antonio has said in numerous interviews that he was happy with the results of the show, but never saying whether or not he found “the one.”

Rachel Zoe Puzzled By Bethenny Frankel Diss

Bethenny Frankel of the Real Housewives of New York City took to her Twitter page earlier this week to slam stylist and fellow Bravo reality star Rachel Zoe.

OK! Magazine caught up with Rachel, star of The Rachel Zoe Project, to ask her about it, she explained that she has no idea where the bad blood came from. “It was out of left field,” she told OK!

Bethenny’s Twitter comments included slams such as –

“Wondering if I’m the only one who can’t get over the self-important nonsense that is Rachel Zoe.”

“If I stick on a lampshade with a moo moo and a pair of bananas hoop earrings, rz may just D I E. What a bunch of BS!”

Rachel is however ready to put this all behind her, saying – “It’s so boring and uninteresting… I don’t find it fascinating at all. And, it was literally out of left field… I’m over it. I’m totally over it.”

This isn’t the first time Bethenny has slammed someone seemingly unprovoked, she did the same to her NY Housewives costar Jill Zarin just weeks ago.

Paula Abdul Wishes Ellen DeGeneres ‘Best of Luck’

Fox recently announced that Ellen DeGeneres has signed on to be the fourth judge on American Idol, replacing Paula Abdul. Paula however has nothing but positive things to say about Ellen.

“I think Ellen will b a great judge on Idol,” she Twittered Thursday. “She is wildly funny, talented and I wish her the best of luck!”

Former judge, Paula Abdul, abruptly announced she would not be returning to the show on her Twitter page back in August. It is said to have been due to contract negotiations. Paula felt she deserved more money than what AI was offering. In an interview with Ryan Seacrest, Ellen promises to be the “honest” judge who will “bring compassion” to the show. In addition, she intends to keep fellow judge Simon Cowell in check.

“I’ll tell him the same thing I tell him when he’s on my show — that he’s mean,” she said. “You can be constructive, and you can criticize someone in a way that’s helpful and not mean-spirited.”

Kate Gosselin In Tears As Jon Plans To Bring Girlfriend Home

There’s a major twist in the Jon and Kate Gosselin saga and it has left Kate crying.

Just when you thought it couldn’t get any worse. Jon recently informed Kate that he wants to bring girlfriend, Hailey Glassman to their Pennsylvania home very soon to spend time with their children, RadarOnline learned exclusively.

According to her pal, Kate was devastated by the news and cried hysterically. Kate wants Jon to reconsider introducing the kids to girlfriend, Hailey, because she thinks it’s hard enough that the kids have to deal with the divorce. In addition, Kate thinks adding a parent’s new romantic interest into the equation right now is simply too much for Kate the kids.

It seems like its pay back time for Jon – any opportunity to make Kate miserable.

“I think Jon is incredibly insensitive for doing this,” Kate’s pal from Pennsylvania told RadarOnline. “This came out of nowhere. It took Kate totally by surprise.”

A source familiar with the Jon & Kate Plus 8 stars says, “Jon thinks Kate is a big drama queen and turns on the tears to get sympathy.” Jon was unsympathetic to Kate crying.

In an ABC interview earlier this week, Jon said he despises Kate and loves Hailey more than he ever loved his wife.

Bachelorette Jillian Harris Dishes On Wedding Plans & Babies

The Bachelorette’s Jillian Harris and fiancé Ed Swiderski appeared on the “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” on Thursday. Amidst all the rumors, the duo seems determined to stay together.

“We want everybody to know we are extremely happy and in love,” Ed tells Ellen, so much that the couple packed up Jillian’s home in Vancouver this past weekend and are officially moving in together next week.

“I’m all packed up and ready to go,” the 30-year-old smiled.

Ed attempted to explain away his alleged bad behavior by saying – “In every sense of the word, I was a bachelor before I went on the show, but I am not perfect. I am a human being.”

Ed goes on to say that he and Jillian have their struggles like any normal relationship and he is sure that fans of “The Bachelorette” would love to know the details, but there are things that should be kept private.

Ed also talked about the two women who started the “cheating allegation” controversy about him in the media. He says, “I don’t know what motivates someone to do something like that. I did have dialogue with these women and I know them pretty well. I don’t know what caused that.”

In other news, Jillian dished to E! News on Thursday at the Rosa Cha show at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week in NYC. Interestingly, Ed was unable to attend the event with her. Oddly enough, It was Ed’s idea for Jillian to be accompanied by Mike Steinberg, New York baseball camp owner that was eliminated in episode four of The Bachelorette.

“Ed was supposed to be here today but then he couldn’t book his flight,” she explained. “Ed and he have been really good friends since the show. So Ed’s like, ‘You know what, why don’t you have Steinberg sit in for me? That’ll make some great news.'”

Jillian admitted to spending time with the most disliked Bachelor Jason Mesnick and his runner-up, Molly Malaney. In addition, Jillian beleives “Reid Rosenthal, would make an ideal next Bachelor because he’s “a solid package.”

So what about wedding plans and kids?

“I think everybody witnessed that it could be so intense right after the show was over. We want to try to live a normal life and get to the point where we live together and start to come together and then start planning,” she said.

Jillian wants a low key wedding with about 100 guests, couple cakes and a live band. And somewhere in the future they also want babies.
