Is Tinsley Mortimer The New Lauren Conrad?

When Lauren Conrad left The Hills to be replaced by super villain Kristin Cavallari, it left a vacancy for a cute blonde who likes to dress in designer labels and party at all the hotspots with her sexy friends while looking for love. Welcome Tinsley Mortimer, the recent divorcee who is currently filming her new CW reality show, “Empire State.” Looks are not all these two reality hotties have in common. Tinsley and Lauren both enjoy pampering themselves, checking out the latest at Fashion Week, and partying at all the right places.

My first impression? She doesn't have Olivia's impeccable style or Lauren's charm but I hope her show surprises me. Also, because of the age difference I don't think Lauren is a fair comparison, I think she's closer in age to the Bravo housewives.

Whitney Port: "Family Fun in Vegas!!!"

Whitney blogged on her website:
"Hi my dears! I just wanted to apologize for my lack of posts recently. I have been working really hard on my clothing line, Whitney Eve, and filming for The City. But no more excuses! I am back and so is my blog!
I wanted to share these pictures with you from my family filled weekend in Vegas last week. I love going to Vegas because not only is it so much fun but my cousins Jackie and Grant live there so it's always nice to get to hang with them. Paigey, Ash and Evan met me there, as well as Sami who flew in all the way from NY. We had delicious meals at Fix and Yellowtail in the Bellagio and danced the night away at Jet in the Mirage. If you ever go to Vegas you must try the Kobe burger sliders at Fix, they were amaaaaazing!
Here are some pics of all of us from the weekend!"

Stephanie Pratt Loves Twilight, Hates Jacob Black!

Steph as Rosalie Cullen on Halloween

"I really did not like [Jacob]. I would put my book down and be like, 'Leave Bella alone.' I had issues with Jacob — that he was just, like, manipulating with her and messing with her, especially when Edward came back in the picture ... I get really mad and I feel bad 'cause I think I take it out on Taylor [Lautner]."
-- Hills star/Twilight addict Stephanie Pratt, telling MTV News why she's 100% on Team Edward. (No offense, Taylor/Jacob!)

It was hate-love for Brody Jenner’s mate Jayde Nicole

“The Hills” honey and 2008 Playboy Playmate of the Year Jayde Nicole had no love for the love of her life, Brody Jenner, the first time she met him.
“I hated him. I absolutely despised him,” Nicole told the Track. “I was so rude to him. For me, coming from a small town, I was anti-Hollywood. I never went out in Hollywood. I heard all these things about Hollywood and Hollywood guys.”
But eventually Nicole warmed up to the Malibu-born stud-muffin.
“We went through a year of me hating him. He eventually wore me down though,” said Nicole, who will be at Shrine in the MGM Grand at Foxwoods for the Little Black Dress party tonight and at The Estate on Boylston Street tomorrow night.
“Once I got to know him in real life, I fell in love with him. He’s completely the opposite of what I had thought that he was.”

Not so for her other “Hills” co-stars, Audrina Patridge and Kristin Cavallari, whom Jayde regularly feuds with on camera. And despite rumors to the contrary, she insists the “reality” show isn’t scripted - but the producers do set up situation where they know the fur will fly.
“I’m not an actress. Brody is not an actor,” she said. “We definitely don’t get scripts. They’ll say OK, you all will go out this night,’ but they won’t tell us that certain people will be there. Everything that happens in the situation is real, though.”
Including, she insisted, her first on-camera fight with Audrina, who had been flirting with Brody.

“It was my birthday celebration,” she recalled. “They, of course, didn’t tell Audrina that. I freaked out! But, of course, the ‘Hills’ people were telling her it was just a night out.”
As for Kristin, Jayde says they, too, have a volatile relationship.
“Both of us are very similar and very stubborn,” she said. “I always stand up for myself no matter what. That gets us into situations that you see on ‘The Hills.’ We fight and we make up, we fight and we make up.

Not scripted? That's funny - they filmed the party at Kristin's on 9/3 and then they filmed Brody & Jayde fighting about going to the party on 10/15 - over a full month later LOL

Off the Felt with Jayde Nicole

So Jayde, tell us, how did you stumble into poker for the first time?
Well, I first started playing poker with my boyfriend Brody Jenner who loves poker. He has big poker games from time to time, and I took to the game right away. I then met All In Magazine publisher Kasey Thompson and I agreed to doing the "All In Magazine Project" where each month I train with a different professional poker player and track all my progress and results in the pages of the magazine.
Sounds awesome, who have you trained with so far?
My first instructor was Jamie Gold. I then trained with Bluff Magazine Online Player of the Year David "The Maven" Chicotsky, and next up is Daniel Negreanu.
Speaking of Daniel, you are one of the celebrity stars on the PokerStars Million Dollar Challenge, and we got to see you in action for the first time a few weeks ago. What was it like watching yourself play poker on television?
One thing you never get used to is seeing yourself on TV. It was definitely fun to watch, but they edited out so many hands I thought I played really well, so I was a bit bummed about that. It was cool to watch though.
Are there any advantages of being a Playmate at the poker tables?
First of all, nobody takes you seriously at the poker table. Girls at the table hate you and everyone else tries to help you learn. It's somewhat similar to how Daniel reacted before my match on the "Million Dollar Challenge."
Favorite starting hand?
Nope, not yet. It's still too early for me to have either a favorite hand, or an unlucky hand.
Who is the better poker player, Brody or Hef?
Well, I have never actually seen Hef play poker. He loves card games, though, so I'm sure he is pretty good. We should definitely get a poker game going at the Playboy Mansion. Brody, I have seen play, and he is pretty good, so I'd have to go with him.
Easier to bluff, Lauren Conrad or Kristin Cavallari?
I love Lauren. She is so so nice, and more conservative so I would definitely rather play her at poker as she would be easier to bluff.
Which is more exciting, flopping top pair or posing topless?
(laughs) I would say flopping top pair is more fun.
Hotter accessory, a WSOP bracelet or a Playmate of the Year diamond pendant?
If I were ever lucky enough to win a bracelet, I would have to ask them to custom make me a special one. The bracelets are so big and heavy and are obviously designed for guys. So for now, I would have to go with my Playmate of the Year pendant.
Who is your favorite poker player and why?
Daniel Negreanu is definitely my favorite. I just love the way he plays the game and he is Canadian like me. So many poker players seem to have big egos, and he is so sweet and fun to be around.
Where can we expect to see you at the poker tables next?
Well, I plan on playing two to three poker tournaments online each week. I'm also playing in an Ante Up for Africa event this week, and then Ill be playing in the PokerStars Caribbean Challenge in the Bahamas in January
