Jayde Nicole Covers Her Brody Jenner Tattoo with a New One on 'The Bunny House' (VIDEO)

Jayde Nicole, 2008 Playboy Playmate of the Year, was Brody Jenner's GF a couple years ago -- so you might have seen her on 'The Hills' or 'Bromance.' Now she's a star in 'The Girls Next Door' spin-off 'Bunny House' (Sun., 10:30PM ET on E!). In Las Vegas, she and her bunny friends are downing drinks two at a time at the tattoo shop in the middle of the night. (A tattoo shop/bar combo? Genius idea.) Her history with Brody is still evident, in the form of a tattoo. "After we broke up, I felt really stupid having a 'B' initialed on the inside of my mouth," she admits. Jayde can't get it removed, so she covers it up with a new tat (check the video for it). Shots of Jagermeister get her through the pain. "Learn from my mistakes, and don't get your boyfriend's name tattooed on you anywhere ever for any reason," she advises her comrades. Noted. Source & Video

Brody Jenner: 'Bromance' Winner 'Loyal, Down To Earth'

Brody Jenner has found his new bro. Luke, from Medford, Mass., was the winner of MTV 's first season of Bromance , which chronicled Brody's search for a new pal. Nine guys from across the country were flown to LA and put through a series of challenges to determine who the best fit was for Brody's crew. So what was it that set Luke apart from his Bromance counterparts? He's very loyal. Very down to earth. Cool, fun and brings something to the table, Brody told over the weekend at the DirecTV Celebrity Beach Bowl in Florida. And a little crazy too, pal Frankie Delgado added. But Brody had to wait to hang out with his new bud after the show finished taping until the finale aired on February 2. Until then, Luke was sent back home to Massachusetts, but he and Brody kept in touch. We've been talking, Brody added. And while he was happy to add a new member to his bro-tourage, Brody said the process of eliminating one potential friend each week wasn't easy. All the guys were good people. The worst part about the show was having to get rid of someone, he said. I love all of the guys and it's a bummer. But there had to be a winner. Now that his crew is one member stronger, will Brody continue his reality quest for more friends with a second season of Bromance? We'll see, Brody concluded. You can never have too many friends.

Brody Jenner Ends His Search for 'Bromance' Tonight

Perhaps best known for his appearance on MTV's The Hills , Brody Jenny will finally name the winner of his reality series Bromance after six installments. Brody's search for bromance, which he defines as a bond between you and your go-to guy, started on December 29, 2008 with nine men competing in challenges in an effort to become his close friend. Last week, the contestants got a taste of Hollywood Brody Jenner style when he committed the ultimate bro crime and deceived them. The remaining four guys thought that they were going to help him market his new jean company as Brody used fake designers, make-up artists, and paparazzi to make it seem like a genuine red carpet gala. Unknown to them, Brody just wanted to see how well the guys handle themselves in the limelight. By the end of the episode, it got down to Luke and Alex. And since Luke stayed strong the whole competition, Brody decided to send Alex home. In tonight's Bromance finale, the three remaining contestants, consisting of Luke, Femi and Chris F., battle it out to win a spot into Brody's circle of friends, the keys to a luxury LA bachelor pad and a brand-new Toyota Scion. But it won't be that easy. Brody's mom steps in to put the remaining hopefuls through a lie-detector test to find out who should stay and who should go home. Of course, one contestants is sent packing while Brody heads to the hometowns of he final two contestants to meet their friends and families before naming the winner of Bromance. Meanwhile, Brody disproves the notion that he won't be hanging out with his chosen bro once his reality series wraps up. When asked by The Associated Press is he's really going to be friends with the winner, he says absolutely. It actually sucks because I can't hang out with him right now while the show is airing because then people will know who I picked, Brody said. Who should win Bromance? Source here

Midseason Mania: Least Exciting Premieres & Returns, Part 1

American Idol Returns Tuesday, January 13th at 8PM on Fox I have no argument that Idol is not still crazy popular nor that it doesn't make real careers for the winners and many runners-up, but it has just gotten so out of hand with its commercialization within the episodes, that it's just too much and it needs to be laid to rest already before it truly is two hours, two days a week of wanna-be stars singing advertising jingles on the back of a Ford pick-up... oh wait. True Beauty Airs Mondays at 10PM on ABC A) Beauty and the Geek was cute and fun, but it's been canceled for a reason. B) Beauty and the Geek looks like it was way, way better than this. C) Remember last season's Crowned all about inner (and outer) beauty? Yeah. I didn't think so. Yes, True Beauty is produced by Tyra Banks and Ashton Kutcher who've had plenty of success with shows right up this alley, but basically it's too straightforward and unimaginative to make any sort of splash in our midseason viewing pools. Game Show in My Head Airs Saturdays at 8PM on CBS Another one Ashton? Really? Apparently it was too late once Opportunity Knocks failed in the fall season to pull this one... that has to be why this is actually airing, right? I have to say I didn't actually watch the Game Show in My Head premiere, but did anyone and isn't that the point? And why? A) The title pretty much makes me want to denounce television entirely. B) It airs on Saturday nights. And we say a Friday slot is a death card. Sorry Ashton, but it seems these days game shows really don't hack it... unless your Howie Mandel, and even he's pushing it (note Howie Do It in Part 2 of this list). Kings Premieres Thursday, March 19th at 9PM on NBC While this one may have a bit of promise, the basic description alone probably turns many "proud" primetime viewers away: "Inspired by the biblical story of King David, this contemporary soap is about a typical small town guy who becomes involved with high society and politics and rises to the top against all odds." First, many TV watchers are immediately bored upon seeing something's based on the Bible or some other very historical reference, and second, you can't openly call something a soap opera if you want solid primetime viewership. There's something snobby about us primetime-only viewers who refuse to accept that any of the dramas we watch are soap-like because of the over-the-top outrageous silliness we stick to what it means to be a soap. Bromance Airs Mondays at 9PM on MTV If they'd done a spin-off with Brody from the reality phenomenon The Hills about two seasons ago, and it was an entirely different idea, I think it would have been a fantastic guilty MTV pleasure. But now Brody's done enough LA morphing that he's a little too annoying of a famous person for doing nothing. Plus the show idea and execution is more than awkward - dating shows are dumb and superficial enough, but what respectable and normal guy is going to go on a show to try to be friends with another guy? And what semi-famous guy is actually going to become and stay friends with the "winner?" I wondered before the show started what "challenges" they could do that wouldn't be totally stupid and really awkward, and I have a feeling even if I watched the whole season, I would still be left wondering.
