“More To Love” Debuts Tonight On Fox

A new reality show, More To Love will debut on FOX tonight featuring Luke Conley as the leading man in search of love. The 26-yr-old real estate investor and sub-contractor was interviewed by PEOPLE about his participation in the first dating reality show featuring a full figured bachelor and bachelorettes.

The series will show Luke, who is 6′3″ tall and weighs more than 300 lbs dating 20 bachelorettes in a quest to find love. Luke doesn’t reveal if he found love but he wants you to tune in and be a part of his journey as he embarks on love.

These are excerpts from the interview:

TV is a notoriously thin place, but there’s been an upswing in pleasantly plump programming. Why do you think that is?
Maybe they have wider angles on their cameras now so they can fit me on. Maybe the trend is heading in that direction because people are just looking for something new and more real.

Were you concerned about being the butt of a nationally televised joke?
I was concerned the main premise of the show was to poke fun. It seemed like everyone had to be talked into it for that same reason. But it’s legitimate. The desire of the show is for two people to make a sincere connection. It just so happens that they’re not size 2 models.

Are you offended by the title?
The title is suiting. I’m a big man so I definitely have more love.

Has weight impacted your love life over the years?
In high school, it caused me to be somewhat bashful. I would find out about girls with crushes on me, but I never knew what to do about it. Bulking up wasn’t something I didn’t have a choice in. I was pursuing a football career. After traveling and in college, I never let it hold me back or stop me from approaching a woman I was interested in.

Victoria Gotti Faces Foreclosure, Vows To Fight

Former reality star and daughter of infamous mob boss, Victoria Gotti, is now facing foreclosure on her Long Island estate.

A New York State Appellate Court ruling may cost Victoria Gotti her Long Island mansion – the five-bedroom, 5½-bath white brick residence might be familiar to viewers of her former reality show – Growing Up Gotti.

“I’m bitter,” the daughter of late Mob boss John Gotti said. “The house, all the marital assets, are part of a divorce package [from ex-husband, Carmine Agnello], I have never seen yet.” According to reports, Gotti, 46, owes $650,000 to her lender. As the so-called Mafia princess tells the paper, “This should finally put to rest all the government lies and rumors that I have $200 million buried in my backyard.”

Jon Gosselin’s Mystery Woman Speaks Out

The woman in the alleged cheating scandal involving Jon Gesslin of Jon & Kate Plus 8 is speaking out, denying all cheating allegations.

Deanna Hummel, 23, tells PEOPLE, “We’re just friends. It’s absurd that anyone would think otherwise.” Deanna claims she met Jon through a mutual friend months ago, and the two have been hanging out – as part of a group of friends, not as couple. She goes on to claim the social outings have included visits to each other’s houses and nights out on the town, but always with others there, and it’s always all innocent.

She also want on to say the above photo of her leaving a club with Jon was being misinterpreted, “He just got this new car and I wanted to drive it. I’m into cars,” she says. “We all have guy and girl friends. Because of who he is, it gets portrayed the wrong way, and it’s unfair to him and his family.”

Jon released a statement last week after the photo was released saying he show “poor judgement.” Gee you don’t say Jon. It seems rather interesting though that Jon’s wife, Kate has yet to release any sort of statement since this scandal broke out.

Do you believe Jon was being unfaithful to Kate?

Jon and Kate Plus 8’s Dad Caught With Other Woman

The cheating allegations are not going away anytime soon for Jon Gosselin as the father of 8 was caught leaving a club at 2:00 am with another woman, not wearing his wedding ring. All this while his wife Kate was 2,000 miles away, promoting her book Eight Little Faces in Bellevue, Washington.

USWeekly reports that Jon arrived at the club at 11:20 p.m. and by 2 a.m. “could barely walk” as he exited the less-public back entrance of Legends Lounge — near the family’s $1.3-million home in Wernersville, Pennsylvania — on April 18.

Jon was alledgedly overheard yelling, “Hey, babe! Babe! Give me my jacket!” before climbing into his Nissan Nismo. As cameras began snapping, he panicked, urging his female friend to “get in the car!” before speeding off hastily — without even turning on the headlights.

Jon has however denied this cheating allegation in his statement to USWeekly stating, “I went to Legends to speak to the owner. A friend of mine wanted to check out my car, so I let her drive it to her car. Yes, I have female friends — but that is all she is. I’m not going to end my friendships just because I’m on TV.”

We can be sure to expect some more berating of Jon by Kate in the next season of the show.

A-Rod and Bethenny Frankel Hooking Up?

The NYDailyNews is reporting that The Yankees slugger was seen stepping out this weekend in Miami with The Real Housewives of New York star Bethenny Frankel. Alex Rodriguez and Bethenny allegedly shared an intimate dinner at a local restaurant on Friday night. Rodriguez then dropped off Frankel at the Fontainebleau Hotel around 12:30 a.m. Saturday. A source told The News’ Gatecrasher column last month that Frankel and A-Rod hooked up “three months ago” but that, after quickly rounding the bases, “A-Rod cut it off.” Bethenny has laughed off these rumors saying, “We’re madly in love; we’re engaged. I fly to Miami every weekend. I’m in the front row when they’re playing. I never felt this way.” Before insisting, “No, I’ve never been in the same room with him,” adding, “Can it be George Clooney? Can’t it just be the celebrity I want to be aligned with?”
