Kristin Cavallari reveals truth behind 'Laguna Beach' in sit-down with Oprah

Anyone who watched MTV’s Laguna Beach knows that the biggest drama was the love triangle that was made up of Kristin Cavallari, Lauren Conrad, and Stephen Colletti. But in a new interview with Oprah, Cavallari says that was all forced.

“The producers would have [Colletti] go and take out Lauren Conrad, take her to dinner, bring her flowers,” she said, “which never would have happened if it wasn’t for the show, for MTV.”

Laguna Beach premiered in 2004 and focused on the lives of a group of teens living in the picturesque California town of Laguna Beach. “We had no idea what we were doing,” Cavallari says of filming the pilot. “We were just going along with whatever MTV was telling us to do. We were kids; we didn’t know.” READ FULL STORY

Reed from 'Survivor' reveals the aftermath of his fight with Baylor and Missy

Reed Kelly did not go gently into that good night on last night’s Survivor: San Juan del Sur. He fought to stay alive by hatching a plot to get Jon and Jaclyn to switch sides, and he also just plain fought…verbally, that is. He got into a heated war of words after the reward challenge, calling Baylor a “brat” and then going at it with Baylor’s mom Missy, who stepped in to defend her daughter. So what happened later when he tried to apologize to Baylor? We asked the ousted Reed that very question when he called into Entertainment Weekly Radio (SiriusXM, channel 105) to discuss what went wrong, and he reveals all. READ FULL STORY

Looking back at the most awkward sponsored challenges on 'Project Runway'

PROJECT-RUNWAY.jpg

In the 10 years Project Runway has been airing, it’s never been known for its subtlety in product placement. (We can talk more about this near the Bluefly.com Accessory Wall, or maybe in the L’Oreal Paris Makeup Room, or perhaps by the Tresemmé Hair Studio—but only if we can grab a snack from this Samsung Food Showcase Refrigerator first. Wow, this Samsung refrigerator is amazing!)

This fact has never more apparent than when Runway features one of its favorite gimmicks: the good ol’ sponsored challenge. True, great designs can come from unusual inspiration (i.e. this look from car parts), but Campbell’s Soup doesn’t necessarily evoke “couture.” Still, regardless of the sponsor, Tim Gunn can sell any awkward challenge with gusto.

To celebrate the show’s premiere 10 years ago this week, here’s a cringe-worthy look back at some of the most egregious offenders: READ FULL STORY

'Project Runway' turns 10: How the show changed reality TV

These days, Project Runway is the TV equivalent of comfort food. Whether we’re bingeing on old seasons or picking up in the middle of the newest one, we’re soothed by the sight of half-dressed mannequins stuck with so many pins that they look like giant voodoo dolls, Tim Gunn’s “this concerns me” face, visions of taffeta grandeur floating down the runway, and Heidi’s impossibly long, lean legs.

But when it debuted 10 years ago this week, Project Runway was a novelty. A decade ago, the most popular reality competitions on TV were The Bachelor, The Bachelorette, Big Brother, Survivor, The Amazing Race, The Mole, and Fear Factor—shows that focused on pretty people trying to double-cross each other. America’s Next Top Model was already in its third season—but it was always more about gorgeous girls and drama than fashion. There was also American Idol, a talent-based contest—though it placed its emphasis on the audience’s judging of the contestants rather than accompanying the singers through their creative processes.

Jeremy from 'Survivor' thought Natalie was the one that flipped on him

Jeremy was shocked when he found out he was blindsided on Survivor: San Juan del Sur. But he was even more shocked when he found out much later who had voted him out. Jeremy called into Entertainment Weekly Radio (SiriusXM, channel 105) this morning and revealed that he actually thought his closest alliance partner, Natalie, was the one who flipped and wrote his name down. You can now get the whole scoop from the latest castaway to be eliminated right here on the InsideTV Podcast. Jeremy also reveals whom he was planning to bring to the final 3, has some harsh words about Missy and some of the choices she’s made in her life, and confirms that he is, in fact, now buddies with John Rocker, whom he describes as a “kindhearted guy.” He also names the person that he says is “still playing the game” months after filming has stopped.

Josh from 'Survivor' on how he got 'screwed' by Julie quitting

He had the numbers. And then he lost them. Josh Canfield thought he had won the battle against adversary Jeremy on Survivor: San Juan del Sur. But then Jaclyn — feeling dissed and dismissed by the men in her alliance — jumped ship and brought her boyfriend with her. They then twisted the knife by voting Josh (who appeared to be one of the few people in that alliance not burping and farting) out of the game and onto Entertainment Weekly Radio (SiriusXM, channel 105) to discuss where it all went wrong. And you can now hear the entire chat right here on the InsideTV Podcast. READ FULL STORY

'Survivor' host Jeff Probst says Mike White helped get rid of Redemption Island

Every week, host Jeff Probst will answer a few questions about the latest episode of ‘Survivor: San Juan del Sur — Blood vs. Water.’

ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: You bastard! You got me! I’ve been talking all season about how Josh is getting a “winner’s edit,” and now the dude is out of the game! But what amazes me the most is how folks still can neglect people on the fringes of their alliance. You and I have spoken countless times over the years about the importance of making the people at the bottom of the totem pole feel important, and it looks like it came back and bit someone else in the butt as the men in Jaclyn’s alliance ignored her while Jon was gone. Why does this kind of stuff still happen?
JEFF PROBST: The only answer I can put forth is it’s further evidence that all of us humans have massive blind spots. For whatever reason, the same mistakes happen season after season on Survivor. It’s not for lack of bright players, it’s just something about human nature, how we process information and what happens to our awareness when we are deprived of the basics such as food, shelter, and comfort.  READ FULL STORY
