This season of The Real World: Las Vegas might be the craziest season yet. It started off with the stereotypical bad boy, Adam, breaking bottles, manipulating girls and roommates and getting kicked off the show for his antics. Didn’t think it could get more wild than that? Wrong- Dustin Zito was outed as a gay porn-star, though he identifies as straight. Nani and Heather had a girl-on-girl rendezvous as revenge towards the guys who took advantage of them. Naomi and Leroy had a pregnancy/STD scare, that fortunately came back negative. What will be next?

Too bad the saying, “What happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas” doesn’t apply to MTV.

With my brother’s wedding quickly approaching, I have been absolutely wedding crazy. Considering that Evan is the first person to get married in my small, Italian family since I was seven years old, I think you can imagine my excitement.

Not only have I been addicted to ‘Say Yes to the Dress‘ and ‘Cake Boss,’ but I’ve also been borderline obsessed with his fiance’s dress and her bridesmaid dress picks. She is far from a Bridezilla, but I fill the shoes well as Bridesmaidzilla.

I was thrilled when Sara shared a link with me from Yahoo titled ‘14 Gorgeous Bridesmaid Dresses.’ Guess what designer was on the esteemed list? #6, Coren Moore– also known as, the designer Sara picked for her bridesmaids to wear on the big day! I’m just a tiny bit overjoyed to be wearing a top, gorgeous bridesmaid dress pick!

Also refreshing on the list, the #4 pick for David’s Bridal. Most David’s Bridal bridesmaid dresses are under $100, saving the ladies from breaking their banks.

Check out the list for yourself- do your bridesmaid dresses make the list?

The Langham Hotel hosted a Royal Wedding celebration. Guest of this event sipped on Earl Grey Tea ate  scones with Devonshire cream and mini sandwiches while they watched William and Kate exchange vows.

Personally I find the Royal Family an impressive tradition that the British people have been able to maintain. In todays society I think that historic traditions are particularly difficult to maintain. While the Royal Family is full of controversy, I think that we should instead of criticizing them focus our energy on viewing the rich traditions they have maintained throughout the years.  The queen issued a statement renaiming Prince William and his bride. Accoring to the Offical Royal Wedding Website

“Prince William thus becomes His Royal Highness The Duke of  Cambridge and Miss Catherine Middleton on marriage will become Her Royal Highness The Duchess of Cambridge.”

Call me a history buff but I do find it interesting. To find more about the royal wedding visit the official royal wedding site.

Eggy Benedict and Martin Ryan of Wait Until Spring

Though I don’t believe that piss and cigarettes butts are going to help my plants grow, as one attendee asserted, last night’s show at PeeWee’s Playhouse was overall a success.

Acoustic artist, Kevin King opened up, followed by Fragments whose interests include “sitting and looking at walls” when they’re not singing “songs about girls and Semi-Pro.” Following Fragments was Bombay and Wait Until Spring. You can preorder Bombay’s upcoming EP, “Writer’s Block” here for only $3. The EP was recorded last December by the drummer of Wait Until Spring, Sean Fitzpatrick, and the cover art was created by former EC student, Dustin Watson.

Stay tuned for upcoming performances this summer by Matahari, Run With The Hunted, Mountain Man, Looming (Kevin King’s long awaited side project,) Coke Fiend, Sorry Excuse, Kicked In, Now Denial, Ramming Speed, and more TBA.

No. He doesn’t.

If Bin Laden had a twitter account he may be alive today.

It turns out that a man, Sohaib Athar, was living his everyday life as a computer programmer, when he heard a helicopter outside his house around one in the morning.

“Helicopter hovering above Abbottabad at 1AM (is a rare event).” –Athar tweeted.

If Bin Laden had been more on top of his social networking tools, he may have learned about the attack before and realized the helicopters were for him.

It makes me question the secrecy of anything anyone does today. If it is happening it will be tweeted.

I have to painfully admit that this morning’s royal ceremony brought me to tears. However, this little girl managed to make me laugh between sobs. Grace Van Cutsem, age 3, is the goddaughter of Prince William and the daughter of Lady Rose Astor and Hugh van Cutsem. She stole the show during the royal kiss by looking less then enthusiastic with the loud noises and billions of screaming people.

It would have made me nervous too.

From the Boston Globe

There’s always something to talk about when it comes to William Lantigua. The Lawrence mayor is being investigated by federal and state authorities on allegations of corruption involving everything from weapons to narcotics, according to the Boston Globe.

The FBI, the Essex district attorney, and other agencies are looking into Lantigua’s dealings with companies that work for the city and into his ongoing public battle with the Lawrence Police Department, according to officials who spoke on the condition of anonymity because the investigation is ongoing.

Authorities are also interested in his connections to half a dozen bars, night clubs, and his control over taxi and towing permits with the city.

Lantigua naturally denies the allegations and is certain he’ll be found innocent, saying “There is nothing to hide … I am standing here today to say there is no corruption in my administration.” Even if he is innocent, the allegations have strengthened efforts to get the mayor recalled. The group leading this movement is called “It’s Your Right,” and they accuse Lantigua of being an incompetent mayor and bully who divides the Whites and Latinos of the city.

This is the toughest challenge Lantigua has faced since becoming mayor. He’s managed to land on his feet throughout several other trials, so I wouldn’t be too surprised to see him somehow get out of this mess. Still, even if he’s proved innocent, I doubt he’ll be reelected for another term.
