On Set With Former “Next Food Network Star” Adam Gertler for His New Show!

Nicole goes behind the scenes on Adam Gertler’s newest project!

B4-setAdam Gertler floored Food Network audiences with his BBQ knowledge on Next Food Network Star season six. Switching from his Cooking Channel web show, Food Bites, the former Kid in a Candy Store host will be back on television at a new home: with his upcoming Discovery Channel food competition show! Adam was nice enough to let me tag along and make him do ridiculous things, like singing the Jeffersons theme song and pop out some seriously “Tyra smizing” Derek Zoolander looks. Adam has a firm grasp on his very own “Blue Steel,” whereas I am the Hansel throwing out a “Magnum” and my very own “look” inspired by Mr. Gertler’s sausage and BBQ venture, “Barbie-Q Pork.”

Of course, there’s more to Adam than meets the eye – after all, Derek taught us in the film “there is more to life than being really, really good looking,” and more so when one is as talented a meat master chef as Mr. Adam. From the sound of it, his upcoming TV program seems fantastic. Several contestants fought off, Bobby Flay style, with the best of local flavor. The competition, filmed at Frank’s in downtown Austin, Texas, was held outside with food trucks awaitin’ and inside, with each contestant’s family watching from above the quickly-made kitchen set planked in the middle of a seating area. I met one gentleman’s parents, a couple photographing him all the while as they ate dinner. The atmosphere was very exciting as to be expected. This time around, Adam’s staff consists of several handfuls of people traveling everywhere he visits. This is bound to be a big show for him and luckily for the meat lover, a break from his sweet tooth adventures. Next up, Adam is going to be touring the South: Atlanta, Memphis, Nashville and New Orleans before heading back home for his consistently superb pop-up restaurant events in LA. Despite what he may tell you about his lack of true formal training, Adam is a super Food Network Star chef, not a run of the mill “cook!”

Before the show, Adam graciously dined with my family and yours truly at the downtown BBQ joint, Lambert’s. For one night,

He coaxed me off my healthier diet for some delicious side orders as he wolfed down brisket and shared my sides. Among some things I learned from him, when you do eat cheese, goat cheese is the most digestible, BBQ sauce is best served on the side, dry rubs are the best possible and when in doubt, ask for the best local beer selection.

Oh, right. My costume? Hopefully, my college pride cowboy hat and collegiate wears lent some pizazz to the cinematography.  😉

Amber Riley Performs Beautiful Tribute To Naya Rivera On ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live!’

Published

RIP.

Whenever Amber Riley and Naya Rivera combined their insurmountable talents on the hit show Glee there was an almost tangible magic that left fans in awe of the powerhouse duo. Playing Mercedes Jones and Santana Lopez respectively, the two characters may not have always seen eye to eye but when they joined you knew you were in for a memorable performance. It is sad to think that we will never get another “River Deep, Mountain High” or “The Boy Is Mine” moment after Rivera’s passing last month but there is something special in knowing Riley will carry the torch for her fallen costar forever.

On Thursday night introduced by guest-host Lil Rel, Riley virtually appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live!  to perform a new song from her EP entitled “A Moment” which was dedicated to Rivera. “Not too long ago we both lost a really amazing friend in a tragic accident and we both will miss her forever,” said Lil Rel. The performance is displayed in black and white and features Riley singing in front of a montage of photos of her former co-star. It is truly stunning.

Check out the tribute below.

You Will Have Hearts In Your Eyes When You See Cardi B’s New Hair Do

Published

Wait till you see her WAP (Wonderfully Artistic Pigtails)

Cardi B has never shied away from a bold look and her latest hair do is proof of that.

The 27-year-old “WAP” singer…song of the year IMO…took to Instagram Tuesday night to show off her pink, heart-shaped pigtails and people are loving the look. In the short video Cardi asks fans if they would “go to the club with your hair like this” and I think we can all agree that this look would definitely turn heads at the clurb.

Ya like my hair ?

A post shared by Cardi B (@iamcardib) on

The artistic hair do was crafted by Cardi’s long time longtime stylist Tokyo Stylez and took at least three hours to complete. Fans commented about how beautiful the unique hairstyle is but questioned how the rapper was going to sleep that night. Let’s hope those pigtails can be twisted off and be thrown on the nightstand.

Check It Out, Joe Jonas Has Shocked His Fans With His New Look

Published

I’m a sucker for his new do.

It doesn’t matter if you are more of a “Nick” or a “Kevin” or a “Joe” when it comes to loving the Jonas Brothers. All that matters is that you all agree with me that Joe is obviously the most attractive of the three brothers and that’s just a fact. I’m sorry but I don’t make the rules.

The 31-year old stunned fans today earlier today when he debuted a shocking new look on his Instagram. Sporting a black t-shirt and those signature dark, furry-Murray eyebrows, Joe flashed his new platinum blond buzzcut. I know I might be in the minority here but I do love when these Hollywood hotties switch it up and do the blond thing. I loved it on Adam Levine. I loved it on Zac Efron. I even found myself oddly drawn to the OG platinum stud, James Michael Tyler aka Gunther from Friends.

Perhaps the new do is a part of Joe’s daddy-makeover as he and his wife, Sophie Turner, recently welcomed their first child, Willa. A source told ET “Sophie and Joe have named their daughter Willa. The couple’s bond has gotten even stronger since the addition of their daughter. Although circumstances are different right now because of the [coronavirus] pandemic, Joe was there for the birth of his daughter. The couple is happy they now have time to spend at home with their daughter and get used to their new life together.”

Be still my heart.
