CASTING in DC: Kitchen Nightmares

A college girl has gotta eat, so when I take my hard earned cash to spend on a well anticipated meal at a restaurant I expect some quality cuisine! Although Washington DC has an array of  prestigious and eclectic restaurants with a reputation for their quality of food, service and interior design, others simply fall short.

Good news – ‘ KITCHEN NIGHTMARES ‘ is casting in DC and the producers are on the hunt for some food establishments that could use a little  bit of guidance from Chef Gordon Ramsay. This is your chance to make a struggling restaurant become successful!

For more details on the casting click HERE!

The book called ‘Inbox Full’ chronicles Ommanney’s search for a new life and love via text messages kept over the last 4 years. Cat tells us it also delves into the reason she had to go public about her tryst with Prince Harry.

As for what’s ahead, Ommaney was recently spotted wearing a battery pack at this NY book launch. It has us asking are the wives back for a 2nd season? Ommaney wouldn’t say YES but said there is something definitely in the works and that she’s been in talks with a couple production companies.

Princess Stacie? Also revealed at the party: Housewife Stacie Turner is a Princess now in Nigeria. Stacie’s husband Jason said it recently happened after Stacie reunited with her birth father. Stacie was adopted through the D.C. adoptive system and recently undertook a difficult, yet ultimately successful, search to find her birth father.

Defending the Housewives of DC (Video)

I’ve never seen one episode of any of Bravo’s Housewives shows… but I plan to tune in for the Housewives of DC. I’m amazed at how much backlash the gals/show is getting before it even airs. Come on people this is entertainment. You know what the Housewives franchise is all about.. so there’s no need to act surprised. In all reality it’s kinda neat we’ll get to see some familar faces and places on the small screen. For those who say these ladies are far from ‘Real’ … C’mon. Gimme a break. They’re real people who really live in the metro area (how many of you Virginians out there say ‘DC’ when outsiders ask you where you’re from?!?). I found out they also have human kids too. All of this hype and hate has me mumbling a phrase I’ve used often in the newsroom over the years: ‘It’s just TV’

Korean 'Jersey Shore' Cast

A reality show that digs at my roots. I already love it.

The cast for K-Town has been set… an Asian-American reality show features 4 guys, 4 girls. According to Channel APA a pilot episode was shot this past weekend and involved heavy drinking, lotsa food and drama for your oh-ma . That’s mom in Korean.

More shots from the shooting of the pilot.. all I can say is I was born and raised in South Korea.. and never saw a native like this
