“Last Man Standing” in The Spotlight

In this week’s episode of The Spotlight, Vanessa has just been nominated for an award that honors the Volunteer Parent of the Year, an annual award at Eve’s school.  Since the principal told her she should prepare a few words, it must mean that she is going to win.

Presently, Vanessa is getting some sun but her relaxation is interrupted as Mike tells her that famous football star, Peyton Manning, came in to the Outdoor Man.

Vanessa is getting nervous about her award at the school when she finds out that another woman’s husband who owns a landscaping company has donated new sod to upgrade the baseball field. She is just sure she is in jeopardy now that politics has come into play. Mike comes up with the idea of helping out the school as he donates an impressive new scoreboard from the Outdoor Man that the whole community is talking about. Now Vanessa is afraid that everybody will think she is trying to buy her way into winning the award. Continue reading

Stories of “OctoMom’s” Rising Debt Crisis

Recent stories of the OctoMom, Nadya Suleman’s, mounting debt are surfacing as she says she is broke and owes a half to one million to creditors.  The list includes lawyers, doctors, teachers and even Direct TV. Suleman has filed for bankruptcy in Orange County, CA claiming she only has upwards of 50,000 to her name because she has wasted her money on things like Direct TV.

Her creditors include an attorney, insurance companies, lawn services, cell phone companies, gas, water, and power companies, Christian schools, pest control companies, and satellite TV.

The mother of 14 says she has attended a debt counseling class as a requirement for filing Chapter 7 bankruptcy.  She claims to have taken it on the internet although it is unclear how she paid for the internet since she is now on welfare, claiming a single mom with 14 kids who has no steady job can’t pay the bills.

Suleman says she has had to make tough decisions and the bankruptcy was one of them. She feels this is the right move for her to be able to care for her 14 children with a fresh start. The mother of 14 receives $2000 per month food stamps and tells Anderson Cooper on a recent talk show that she is not ashamed for posing nude for a British magazine for $8000. Continue reading

“Shark Tank” – Episode 314

Friday’s show in the “Shark Tank” hosts Barbara Lampugnale as she pitches her “Nail Pak,” asking for $50,000 for 20% of her business.

Barbara has six girls and they all enjoy painting each others nails on Friday nights. Barbara came up with the idea of packaging the nail polish, pads, file, and remover into one convenient bundle for retail.  She conveys it costs her $3 to make the package and it sells for $14.99 each. She has invested just under $300,000 of her own money so far.

Shark Robert decides he can’t see how it is possible to add any value to the product so he is not interested. Mark is aware that Barbara needs a big support team to help her grow the product, but he is out as he knows he is not that guy. Lori likes the product and makes Barbara an offer of $50k but wants 51% of the company as she thinks it will sell out on QVC and promises Barbara to treat the product as it is was her own.

Meanwhile, Kevin hops on the bandwagon and offers her $50k for only 40% of her company as he knows many people who will get her on shopping channels. He emphasizes that with him, Barbara will retain control over her company as he asks Daymond to join in with him. Continue reading

Judges Axed From “America’s Next Top Model”

Loyal followers of CW’s “America’s Next Top Model” were surprised to find out that some of the fan favorites would not be on the show next season.

Nigel Barker, judge for the show, J. Alexander, model coach and Jay Manuel, creative director, will all be replaced in the coming season. Not only were fans a little sad to see such long-time members of the show go, but Tyra Banks was, as well.

Tyra Banks is the executive producer and the host for the hit series. As her position dictates, she has to make the hard decisions, sometimes. However, that doesn’t mean she has to like it. In a recent interview, Ms. Banks talked about the decision to let these people go.

Banks stated that the decision to fire Barker, Alexander and Manuel was very difficult. She said it was done because she felt like the show needed something new, like a new boost. She also said there are a lot of people that are involved in the decision-making process. She also said she still loves them, and that they are her guys. She went on to explain the close ties were a result of them being with her since the beginning of the show.

However, there may be good news for the future employment statuses of Barker, Alexander and Manuel, because Banks also revealed that she and Ken Mok have other projects that they are developing. She said they are a family and that it doesn’t end. Continue reading

Kardashian Family Offers Vague Comments on Kim and Kanye’s Relationship

It’s obvious the Kardashians are sticking together as they dodge the rumor mill and try to squelch the rumors of Kim and Kanye West being an item so soon after the breakup of Kris Humphries and Kim. It’s already been revealed in interviews that Khloe thinks Kim and Kanye are cute together, and all Kourtney would say is “Who knows?” So you see there is no denying it, but there are also no affirmations to the contrary.

As far as finding out what Kim’s mom and Bruce think about it, Kris shared some comments on Ryan Seacrest’s radio show, but they were no more informative than what is already known. Kim’s mom dodged the gossip bullet by saying Kanye has been a long time friend of the family and she loves him dearly. She went a step further to explain that she doesn’t try to make judgments about the people the girls have relationships with as she doesn’t want to get herself in trouble, and reiterates earlier comments that she is usually the last to know when it comes to her girls’ love lives.

Bruce, on the other hand, gave a motivational speech to some college kids at Northwestern University in Boston last week, and his remarks weren’t as positive as those of his wife. He admitted that he and Kim have had a conversation about a potential relationship, but said he was not that excited about the situation as the subject came up. Some of the students tried to analyze Bruce’s comments as they say he gave the impression he was not happy about the idea of the two hooking up, and although he would not confirm or deny it, his comments gave them the feeling that the two were together.
