Melissa Rycroft and husband, Tye Strickland
Flo Rida hosted OK! Magazine's Pre Grammy party Friday night at Tru Hollywood nightclub and the reality television stars dominated the red carpet. The Bachelorette's Ali Fedotowsky (who was recently seen looking chummy with the new Bachelorette, Emily Maynard, seemed a bit shy and was in no mood to answer any questions. Perhaps she is still tight lipped about her breakup with Roberto Martinez, who apparently has a new squeeze in his life. Former contestant on The Bachelor, Melissa Rycroft, and her husband Tye Strickland left their one year old baby girl, Ava at home while they partied the n...

'Bachelor Pad' Recap: The West Coast Version Of 'Jersey Shore' Ends Its Season

9/15/2010 4:05pm EDT
Now that we’ve endured a full season of “Bachelor Pad,” we can confirm that our suspicions were correct and this show was a West Coast version of the “Jersey Shore” experiment: What happens when you put a bunch of lazy, shameless people in a house with a hot tub, a lot of alcohol and a camera crew?

From the evidence we’ve gathered so far, we can make the following conclusions: 1)Being slutty and orange-skinned or slutty with killer abs pays really well; 2)Bromances are the best relationships; 3)Anonymous letters from roommates and better judgment still won’t get some girls to reclaim their...

'Bachelor Pad' Recap: The Most Dramatic Guilty Pleasure Ever

8/11/2010 9:42am EDT
Bachelor Pad
After 20 seasons, “The Bachelor” franchise decided to do away with the flimsy pretense that it has anything to do with love, marriage, or common decency. What we’re left with is “Bachelor Pad,” a tasteless and classless version of a show that was never particularly tasteful or classy to begin with --in other words, a ‘Jersey Shore’-caliber guilty pleasure.
