LeAnn Rimes in the News by NMD
LeAnn Rimes isn’t a housewife, but she’s been locked in an epic battle of empty wits with Brandi Glanville ever since she stole Brandi’s disgusting cheating husband Eddie Cibrian, so she’s blog worthy.
First of all, the suit she filed against teacher Kimberly Smiley and her daughter has been dismissed. It had something to do with Smiley recording a phone call and replaying it – trivial stuff – unless you’re LeAnn Rimes and vindictive. Smiley’s lawyer says they reached an agreement. You can read about it here.
Also in the news are new reports that Eddie is about to leave LeAnn – saying she’s psycho. His rep is denying it -as usual. It seems like it’s just a matter of time – – –
Survivor – Blood vs Water – 27.7 by MelTheHound
Welcome back, castaways.. Last week, Kat opened her big mouth and decided to try and make a power play to send Monica to RI, going against the girls alliance on the Galang tribe. Monica got wind of it and turned it around on that silly silly girl, Kat. She was voted out. This week’s show picks up with her staggering into camp at redemption island. Her concern is that her Heyden is going to be mad at her. We all know or strongly believe, that these two are together for the show only. Stick with me here. The next day we see Kat sitting alone on the beach, crying about how her boyfriend is going to react to the news that she has been voted out. Crying.. We see a closeup of her face as she is putting on this act. Not one single tear, not even bloodshot eyes, misty eyes, nothing. I could understand that if they were in the Sahara where water evaporates with air contact but this is a tropical type island, likely somewhere in the Philippines, and there is humidity in the air.
Redemption Island (RI)
Probst ushers in the new Galang tribe, minus Kat. No one looks surprised she isn’t there and will be part of the day’s activities. Not even Heyden. Probst calls in the three players and right away, Kat wants a hug from her boo… Drycry again. Probst reminds them that at anytime, they can switch places. Heyden feels pretty good about his position in the game, she wants to switch because she sucks at puzzles. He basically says No, I’m good. He asked her about long term plans. Who has a better chance of winning. She said he does. Case closed. This had to be the biggest load of horseshit I have ever seen on this show.
Let’s get to the game.. Yes, I’m using an old picture. It is the puzzle that matters here and it’s the one that Cochran solved to win the final immunity challenge last season. In order to get the pieces for the puzzle, the players have to untie a machete. chop through a thick rope which will release the bag holding the puzzle pieces, at which point they can begin building the puzzle. Not rocket science and not too demanding. On go, John takes an early lead and stays there. Laura is actually last to get her bag down from the rope but Kat, doesn’t know how to open a bag so, she gets stuck before she can begin building her puzzle. As John runs away with it, Laura is looking at his puzzle so she can do hers. In other words, she’s copying him. Kat calls her a cheater but Probst says it’s okay to look. I guess Kat didn’t hear that part because she doesn’t want to cheat. Silly Silly Girl.. It isn’t cheating if Probst says it’s okay. It should not be too shocking that John finished first, Laura second, and while Kat began to pick up momentum at the end, she still lost. Laura is the terminator here. She just keeps going steady and doesn’t panic.
So, Kat gets to say her goodbyes to her boo as Probst tells her to bounce. Even John is laughing his ass off as I think he too believes this is a game romance. He knows it’s BS too. He gets to give away another clue to the idol, he gives it to Monica, she burns it again. I think this is the longest I have ever seen this game go without an idol being found.
Pre Challenge Chatter
At Tadhang.. Heyden is disappointed his girl is gone (but not really) he does come to the revelation that he can now play his own game and be as big of an ass as he wants. He doesn’t have to worry about someone else now. He has joined the crowd of those who have no loved ones on the other side to worry about. The only one still in that boat, is Aras and no one wants him reunited with his brother after the merge. In fact, Tyson is talking up everyone (except for Aras) on that very idea. Cierra, is just fascinated by it all and the fact that she is still there and is being considered part of a final 5 alliance.
At Galang, the 4 remaining women are all thinking the same thing. Get rid of Vytas now that the traitor, Kat, is gone. The women decide once again to stay girl strong. There is a crack forming though. Vytas has been doing a pretty good job of playing on the emotions of the women and it’s working for him. They all like him. He knows he’s the odd man out but hopes that his talking with the women about his past and all that, is helping him in the game. In the end, they agree not to lose so they don’t have to vote the nice guy out.
The object of this game is that 4 from each tribe will be tied together at the ankles. The ones on each end of the line will be tied to this spiral that they must free themselves from so the entire team can move out into the playing field. They have to collect bags along the way, and all 8 players will be attempting this at once. They can also prevent their opponents from moving.. The object of being under this thing is for each team member to collect a bag of parts. Within those bags are the parts to make up 6 bolos that the 5th member must toss at the target, landing 3 of them. First team to do that, wins immunity and reward. The reward is a fried chicken picnic. Deep fried chicken, corn on the cob, macaroni and cheese, ice tea, lemonade. Southern Feast, as Monica called it. They all look pretty excited about the prospect. I’ll tell ya, these rewards are no place for vegetarians or vegans. Since Tadhana has one extra player, they have to sit one out. They decide to have Cierra take a spot on the bench. When they start, Vytas and Monica are working the spirals for Galang, Gervace and Heyden for Tadhana. The collecting of the puzzle piece bags is basically a cluster of malay (no fighting) under those racks as each team tries to prevent the other from progressing. Both teams get to their puzzle tables at about the same time. Tyson for Tadhang, Tina for Galang. It’s a close race on landing the 3 bolos but in the end, Tyson pulls off the win for Tadhang. They will be enjoying the chicken, Galang is going to council where we assume, Vytas will be voted out by the 4 girl strong alliance. Hold that thought.
Pre Tribal Chatter
First, We get to see Tadhang indulging in their reward.. TH Tyson says he really doesn’t need it as he has been eating all the food at the camp since he got there. He notes that he’s been there 3 times before and is a bit of a pro at getting his way so the others tend to listen to him. TH Heyden notes that before, his tribe couldn’t win. Now they can’t lose, since the mix up. We will leave them to their picnic for now.
Over at Galang, there really isn’t much worth talking about except for one thing. In what has to be one of the most stunningly stupid things I have ever seen on this game, not quite THE most stupid but, damn close to it. Laura B, in front of everyone else, tells Vytas that he is the target that night at council. They have all agreed that he is the one to go. I don’t know who was more stunned by her telling him this. Him, or the other 3 women. Aside from noting that the women wish she had discussed it with them before making this executive decision to spill the beans to Vytas, there really isn’t much else worth talking about here.
Once again, Galang is ushered in and the Probsting begins. I am convinced that Probst has an ear to production because he always knows just what questions to ask. He goes right for LauraB and gets her to tell what her thinking was during the pre tribal chatter. He didn’t say it quite like that but he may as well have. She sealed her fate with Katie and Monica when she did what she did, her only hope at this point is Tina. While Tina likes Vytas too (she even said she wouldn’t mind if her daughter became close with him, she’s ready for grand kids from a marriage, though he is going to have to club her over the head and drag her into his cave, as she put it) she doesn’t seem to be able to square the idea that yet another woman in this ‘alliance’ cannot be trusted. I don’t think there is really any need to continue this, it’s going to be the second easiest vote for these people.. Not surprisingly, Laura B is voted out. She’s on her way to the island of redemption. Probst notes that most of all in this game what you say, may end up getting you voted out. Her exit interview, if she’s still there after the merge, those beeshes better watch out.
That is going to come next week kiddies. there are 3 at RI, which One will return to the game. It’s Merge time and what everyone didn’t want, Vytas and Aras will be in the game together. See you next week.
