This week’s RHOC picks up where last week’s left off, with Gretchen becoming a Pussycat Doll and the gang, including Vicki, is all in Vegas to support her.

But will all the good will between Gretchen and Vicki be left in the desert?

Here’s THG's +/- recap of The Real Housewives of Orange County!

Gretchen Rossi Sings

The girls are all nervous for Gretchen. Gretchen’s nervous for Gretchen. Everyone’s nervous. Except the ACTUAL Pussycat Dolls. While Gretchen changes into her performance outfit, everybody else enjoys the show.

Vicki says Brooks is from the South so he’s never seen anything like this.

Tamra says she could be a gynecologist now.

Plus 5 for the giggles.

It’s time for Gretchen to perform and Alexis’ prayers didn’t pay off. That was rough. But, like Tamra said, she looked great? That’s a plus, right?

The gang has ventured back to Slade and Gretchen’s hotel room for a post-Pussycat Dolls party and to celebrate Gretchen’s birthday. Vicki brought Gretchen a birthday present AND an apology. And then Vicki ruins it by expecting an apology back from Gretchen. Plus 10 for the apology and Minus 20 for ruining the moment.

The Voice revealed its final four last night, with the judges (in two of four cases anyway) weighing in to influence the results. Who moved on to the finals?

The coaches had to split 100 points between their two singers. Combined with America's votes, those point totals would determine which would move on.

Of course, two copped out and awarded them 50-50, which shouldn't even be allowed. If you're not going to go at least 51-49, why even have this step?

In any event, Christina gave Chris Mann and Lindsey Pavao each 50 points.

"I really wanted America ... to be the deciding factor in this case," she said, leaving it up to the voters, who kept opera singer Mann and sent Pavao home.

Adam Levine, despite saying that "both of you guys have improved so much and come into your own," gave Tony Lucca a 60-40 edge over Katrina Parker.

That was enough to propel Tony into next week's season finale.

After Monday's Dancing With the Stars performances, which saw Maria Menounos and Derek Hough receive the first perfect 30 of the year, it seemed all but certain that Melissa Gilbert and an injured Maksim Chmerkovskiy would be in the bottom two.

Their 21-point tango left them in last place, a full three points behind Jaleel White and Kym Johnson and four behind Roshon Fegan and Chelsie Hightower.

Which two pairs were in the bottom two, and who was safe on last night's Dancing With the Stars results show? More than a few people were surprised.

  • Melissa Gilbert and Maksim Chmerkovskiy
  • Jaleel White and Kym Johnson
  • Roshon Fegan and Chelsie Hightower

Melissa and Maks were declared safe, leaving young Roshon and Chelsie to go up against fan favorites Jaleel and Kym in the dance duel for their lives.

After the two performed dueling rumbas, the judges made their decision.

"This is not easy. Side by side you guys are pretty much equal," said Carrie Ann, who chose Roshon and Chelsie to stay. Len and Bruno made it unanimous.

And just like that, Jaleel White's run on Dancing With the Stars ended.

"I really only thought I'd last about three dances this competition," White said after his elimination, "so to get this far – I've made incredible friends, the fans have just been incredible. I love Roshon Fegan ... I'm glad they saved him."

What do you think: Should Jaleel have gone home?

The Biggest Loser: No Excuses was a season full of unexpected twists and turns ... but, well, few excuses. At the end of the day, the final three stepped on the scale.

With Mark Cornelison and Buddy Shuh, who quit just before the finals, and Joe Messina, who quit earlier in the season, ineligible, the field was narrowed a bit.

In their absence, fan favorites Chism Cornelison, Emily Joy and Cassandra Sturros took to the stage with 11 other contestants to show off their new figures.

That was for the at-home prize of $100,000.

  • Jeremy Britt, Biggest Loser
  • Jeremy Britt, The Biggest Loser

Mike Messina won the at-home prize by losing a total of 160 lbs., or 44.69 percent of his body weight. He beat out Cassandra Sturos (who lost 92 lbs., or 38.49 percent) and her friend Emily Joy (who lost 102 lbs. lost, or 38.64 percent).

The grand prize came down to single mom Conda Britt, 24, her brother Jeremy Britt, 22, and former pro-wrestler Kim Nielsen, 38. The weigh-in results:

  • Conda went from 294 lbs. to 179, a loss of 115, or 39.12 percent of her body.
  • Kim went from 252 lbs. to 134, a total weight loss of 118 or 46.83 percent.
  • Jeremy went from 389 lbs. to 190 for a weight loss of a whopping 199, which is 51.16 percent of his previous body weight.

That makes Jeremy Britt, who is now half the man he used to be, but only literally, the winner of The Biggest Loser and $250,000! Well done man!

Catholic League President Bill Donohue is not having any of Dan Savage's apology.

On Friday, the gay rights activist delivered the keynote addresses at the National High School Journalism Conference in Seattle, saying - while making a general point about how Christians look past plenty of passages in the Bible, most notably those promoting slavery - that folks should “learn to ignore the bullshit in the Bible about gay people.”

In response, a handful of students walked out on the speech and Savage has faced criticism from a number of organizations.

Savage has since clarified certain remarks, specifically saying he regrets referring to the students who left his lecture as making a "pansy-ass move," acknowledging this is a form of bullying.

But is he sorry for the message he was trying to send? No.

“If believers can ignore what the Bible says about slavery, they can ignore what the Bible says about homosexuality," Savage has reiterated as the crux of his point.

But none of that is enough for Donohue. He has released a statement that castigates Savage for a "history of making... vile, disgusting and bigoted remarks" and says:

Ironically, Savage’s bullying of Christian students was done in the name of protesting the bullying of homosexuals. When it comes to bullying, Savage has no peer. We hope the Obama administration, which has welcomed him to the White House, takes note.

What do YOU think, THGers? Does Savage owe Christians more of an apology?

ABC has released, in the form of a season overview, more details of Emily Maynard's search for love, commencing Monday, May 14 on The Bachelorette.

While kicking things off in her hometown of Charlotte, Emily will travel to Dubrovnik, Croatia; Prague, Czech Republic; and London, England this summer.

Read The Bachelorette spoilers we've pulled together so far regarding which men make it to the hometown dates and more, then read ABC's rundown:

Emily Maynard Picture

The 26-year-old former Bachelor winner first meets her 25 suitors at a southern mansion for a cocktail party after putting six-year-old daughter Ricki to bed.

Several of Maynard's bachelors will attempt to make memorable first impressions during their arrivals as always ... that's par for the course on this show.

Think actual glass slippers being presented, dudes riding in on skateboards, a party MC who breaks down into dance, and a gesture from a true southern gentleman who gives Emily something to symbolize how he'd protect her and Ricki.

In addition, Maynard will also encounter one suitor who makes a grand entrance in a helicopter ... is it Brad Womack? Is it Bentley Williams? No and no.

The promos always mislead you that way ...

With Britney Spears already on board, might Simon Cowell be giving up all notions of The X Factor as a singing competition?

It's hard not to think the producer is simply aiming to rake in the ratings, considering the latest name reportedly on the table to join season two as a judge: Miley Cyrus.

Simply put, “there have been talks with Miley,” an X Factor insider tells Celebuzz, a rumor backed up by E! News.

Both outlets also report that Fergie, Avril Lavigne and Demi Lovato are in the running to join Cowell, Spears and L.A. Reid on the panel. A decision will need to come within a month or so, in order for auditions to begin and The X Factor to premiere season two in September.

What do you think of Miley Cyrus as a judge? Would she be a good choice?

 

UPDATE: The Hollywood Reporter now claims Lovato is the one to beat and is in "final negotiations" for the gig.

Over the weekend Patrick Schwarzenegger, the son of Arnold, Tweeted a photo of himself experiencing a typical teen rite of passage: his senior prom.

The 18-year-old attended with another celebrity offspring, legendary music producer (and American Idol mentor) Jimmy Iovine's daughter Jade Iovine.

Check out their cute Instagram prom photo below:

Patrick Schwarzenegger and Jade Iovine

In addition to being a student, Patrick is a model, aspiring actor and a designer for the charity-driven clothing line Project 360. Not bad for a teenager.

In the pic, classmate Jade, in a white, strapless dress, pins a boutonnière to his tuxedo. He captioned the pic: "Prom with my best friend @jadeiovine."

Then he added "haha yes just friends."

Jade appears to be tight with the entire family. She is also friends with Patrick's older sister Katherine Schwarzenegger and messages her on Twitter.

Iovine is actively involved in the Young Woman's Conference at Brentwood School, which she attends with Patrick, and whose honorary chair is Maria Shriver.

She later wrote about the event for The Huffington Post and talked about how she was bullied growing up. Seems like a nice girl, doesn't she?

Guess Camille Grammer couldn't quit the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills after all. An E! source says she will, in fact, return to the Bravo hit for its third season.

Grammer, who all but officially left her role as a series regular on the program earlier this year, is now heading back to the reality show in some capacity.

She will be making cameos throughout next season, reports say, including an appearance at Kyle Richards' birthday party, which she attended last weekend.

Camille Drops Knowledge

Over the coming weeks, Kelsey Grammer's former wife is expected to continue to shoot even more scenes for next season. So much for Camille being fired.

"I didn't want to expose my personal life so much anymore," the 43-year-old explained last month regarding her departure from the highly-rated reality series.

"I had done that and was over that. I care very much for my children, and that show tends to take me away from them. I really want to focus on them right now."

Well, at least to a point.

What do you think of Camille Grammer returning to the show she helped catapult to the top of Bravo's roster of programming devoted to wealthy snobs? Discuss!
