Congrats to “Keeping Up With The Kardashians” stars Kourtney Kardashian and Scott Disick! The pair’s second child, Penelope Scotland Disick, was born July 8 at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center and weighed 7 pounds, 14 ounces. She is so into being a mom for the second time, she even started her own mommy blog for E! Hospital Baby Bag! As if she wasn’t busy enough, she even opened Dash LA this week. Overachieve much?
If you never thought there would be a reality show about breastfeeding toddlers, your instincts have been way off. Word on the street is Dance Mom’s Collins Avenue Productions is working on a show that focuses on extreme parenting practices – including non-weaned kiddos. Would you watch?
American Idol: Steven Tyler released a statement that he is done judging potential superstars after two seasons on American Idol. According to TMZ, Tyler has issued a statement stating, “After some long … hard … thoughts … I’ve decided it’s time for me to let go of my mistress ‘American Idol’ before she boils my rabbit. ‘Idol’ was over-the-top fun, and I loved every minute of it. Now it’s time to bring Rock Back.” He is going back to performing with Aerosmith, a move “AI” co-creator Simon Fuller seems totally cool with in a statement of his own. “I completely understand his desire to get back to his life as the singer in America’s greatest-ever rock band. ‘American Idol’ will miss him!”
The Bachelorette: Emily is down to her top two guys, and the pressure is on for the single mom to pick the right one. But before that, we get to hear what all the guys say on the “Men Tell All Special” Sunday, July 16 at 8:00 PM EST on ABC. I sure hope we get to see some sour grapes from the spurned suitors.
Chris Harrison tweeted the possibility of a Bachelor-based blooper special. Yes please.
This is true people! RT @fleissmeister: Might be making a one-hour Bachelor bloopers special for ABC. Would u watch???

Big Brother: The gold standard for lab rat television, season 14 of “Big Brother” premiered last night and kicked off my summer obsession. Four former contestants came back, (Mike Boogie!) but even more exciting is the addition of Russell Hantz’s brother to the mix. A few sharp cookies figured it out right away. Did you?

The Glass House: Slightly more exciting than the legal battle being waged between CBS’ “Big Brother” and ABC’s “The Glass House” is the fact the house is finally divided into alliances. A snoozer so far, the new show will need to really shake things up to keep me interested. Will Ashley or Kevin return to the game next week? Not sure I care too much, but that hasn’t stopped me from tuning in.
Jersey Shore: Being seven-months pregnant is not holding Snooki back from giving filming at the shore her all this week. Rumor is Snooki, JWoww and the rest of the crew are back at Seaside filming a political skit for Funny or Die. Sounds enlightening!
Mob Wives: Someone doesn't know who they are messing with! "Mob Wive's" Renee Graziano's Staten Island house was burglarized last weekend, and according to The New York Post a mink coat and some jewelry was pinched, but luckily Renee - who is also celebrating a birthday this week - was in Atlantic City at the time. She took to Twitter to thank her fans for their support.

Project Runway: One day you are in, the next you are out. And that is exactly what happened when supermodel Rosie Huntington-Whiteley dumped her All-Stars hosting gig at the last minute. Page Six reports Rosie dropped out just three weeks before shooting began last month for the Lifetime series to fly to Namibia to film "MM: Fury Road," the new "Mad Max" movie. Rosie was replacing model Angela Lindvall, but was then replaced herself with Carolyn Murphy. Season 10 of the original series premieres later this month.
Real Housewives: Rumor is NeNe Leakes is in danger of losing her job on "The Real Housewives of Atlanta." Her contracted for $1 million this season outpaces all the other wives in the franchise. What could cause Andy Cohen and crew to kick her to the curb? Read the full story, NeNe hits producer?
