Preview of Episode 8 of The Bachelorette Season 7

Next week on reality TV’s The Bachelorette, Ashley Hebert and her four guys will be returning to the states after a whirlwind tour of Asia. That means it’s time for the all-important hometown dates!  This week, the bachelorette will be meeting the families of the following men: Constantine Tzortzis, Ben Flajnik, J.P. Rosenbaum, and Ames Brown. Creating a solid relationship with the family is a critical step in The Bachelorette process, and the sneak peek promises that Hebert will immediately feel at home with Tzortzis’s family. After remarking “I love your family, and I’m moving in,” the bubbly brunette is treated to a “Welcome Home, Constantine!” dance party with the Atlanta native’s extended family. If Hebert is looking for a relationship and love with a family man, maybe this is it — after all, Tzortzis says that family is an “integral part” of his life. Could he be the winner of The Bachelorette season 7?

It’s almost time again for the 2nd annual “Reality Reunion” on Catalina Island.  If you haven’t had your fill of drama and cat fighting during this year’s reality television season, there’s sure to be some juicy gossip at this summer’s over sized party where contestants from the Bachelor, Bachelorette, Survivor and The Amazing Race are all set to travel to Catalina Island.  There will be raffles, contests, partying and tons of fun.

A portion of the ticket proceeds will go to the “name a tent” fundraiser for the Catalina Experience- a non-profit organization whose mission is to create awareness of the local marine environment and of the critical habitat found on Catalina Island.  All remaining funds from the weekend will go to Stand Up 2 Cancer.

Unfortunately for all you reality TV fans, the event is for reality stars only.  However, four lucky fans can snag tickets to this year’s Reality Reunion by heading to www.realityreunion.com and purchasing them for $1,500 each.

The Real Housewives of New York City’s Simon van Kempen to Release Debut Single

Posted In: Real Housewives, Reality TV

As if The Real Housewives of New York City doesn’t provide enough entertainment already, now one of the reality show’s main men, Simon van Kempen, is busting onto the music scene with a pop and dance track called “I Am Real.”  The single, to be released today at 11 p.m. EST on Bravo TV’s Watch What Happens: Live, takes an ironic look at the reality star and others from The Real Housewives of New York.

Produced by JSM Music in New York City, the track was specifically written about van Kempen’s experience on the hit show and is the first of its kind, according to a press release.  “Not many people know this, but I spent my childhood and early 20’s studying and performing as a musician.  Music has been a huge part of my life, and although I never thought of myself as a singer, I was thrilled and a little nervous when Joel Simon and JSM approached me with idea of creating a song,” said the star.  “More than anything, I wanted the track to be fun, irreverent and to talk about my real experience on the ‘Real Housewives of New York City.’”

By Lori Bizzoco

If you’re from New York or a fan of ABC’s reality show Shark Tank, there’s no denying that you’ve heard of Barbara Corcoran, the savvy real estate mogul who started her business with only $1,000 (given to her by an ex-boyfriend) and parlayed it into a billion dollar company.  She now sits among a panel of business tycoons (all men) as they battle it out to invest their hard earned money into the next big idea or product pitched to them by starving entrepreneurs.  For Corcoran, a woman who has been building a business all of her life, she says the show was perfect for her.  More than a successful entrepreneur, she is a wife and mother, something she proudly speaks about.  She says that most of what she learned about business was by watching her mother helm a household of 10 kids.  Her inspiring story is chronicled in her latest book, Shark Tales: How I Turned $1,000 into a Billion Dollar Business.

We had the privilege of speaking with Corcoran, who offered advice to single women who are interested in starting their own career.  She also shared what she’s looking for when choosing a new business.  The answers may surprise you; it’s not all about the numbers.

Another Kardashian, another reality show!  Access Hollywood reports Khloe Kardashian and hubby Lamar Odom are currently promoting their new E! show, Khloe & Lamar.  But with reality TV’s long history of ruining relationships (like Jessica Simpson and Nick Lachey or Carmen Electra and Dave Navarro), the couple are taking a chance by letting cameras film every moment of their personal lives.  However, Kardashian insists that the show has actually strengthened her family’s bond. “This show has made [my family] closer and stronger, because it does make you spend time with each other, and also, this show is therapy to us.” She added that watching herself on camera has helped her become a better person.  “We do watch things and when we watch them we’re like, ‘Oooh – I hated how I treated you,’ or, ‘I hated how I said that,’ and you learn to mature and change yourself.”

If you want to know the key ingredient to winning (no Sheen pun intended), look no further than last summer’s Bachelor Pad winners: Natalie Getz and David Good.

Even though these two former contestants didn’t strike a love match on their respective Bachelor-franchise seasons, this dynamic duo made their mark as the first couple to win the ABC spin-off reality show, Bachelor Pad, where 19 past contestants competed for a grand prize of $250,000.

Throughout the show’s run, this couple focused on making their way to the finish line.  If there’s anything we can learn from watching Getz and Good, it’s that three important traits are needed to keep any relationship moving forward: loyalty, trust and friendship, which they exemplified.  While most romantic couples aren’t competing for anything but each other’s hearts, these elements can have you and your partner come out winning too – whether it’s for love, marriage or happiness.

Cupid had the opportunity to speak with Natalie and David about love, dating and how their lives have changed since Bachelor Pad ended.  Read on to see what they had to say:
