The Word: The ‘Virgin Bachelor’ is a virgin no longer

Seanlowe
Nothing makes me roll my eyes harder than the phrase “born again virgin” unless it’s a celebrity proclaiming, “We’re going to be married forever!” As it turns out, Sean Lowe, who was known as the Virgin Bachelor on this season of “The Bachelor” for his insistence of not fornicating until marriage (again) won’t be offered up as sacrifice to the gods anytime soon.

Two sources confirm in the new issue of Life & Style that Sean did in fact sleep with his fiancée, Catherine Giudici,  while the show was still airing. “Yes, they definitely had sex,” a “Bachelor insider” reveals to Life & Style. “The first time was the night he proposed in Thailand.” A second source close to Catherine confirms the fling, saying, “Sean and Catherine have hooked up already. The whole born-again-virgin thing is a bunch of B.S. It’s just something he made up for the show.”

Wait. A network made up something on a reality TV show in order to get ratings? Stop blowing my mind, Life & Style!

Will J.Lo be back on ‘Idol’?
The folks behind “American Idol” have apparently been having second thoughts about this season’s judges, as producers were reportedly mulling over the idea of bringing back former judge Jennifer Lopez to replace Mariah Carey in a bid to stop the reality show’s ratings free-fall, according to the Hollywood Reporter.

Sources say producers had even begun negotiations with Lopez to return as soon as possible, but apparently Carey got wind of the talks and threatened to sue. The show’s producers are reportedly still hoping for a Lopez guest-spot for the show’s finale and are considering replacing the entire judging panel for next season. Last week’s performance episode brought in the show’s worst ratings in its 12-year history.

I just think “American Idol” should stop while it’s still slightly ahead. I mean, if Mariah Carey can’t bring in the ratings, who can? Betty White?

Bieber and Gomez’s make-out sessions
Do Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez’s make-out sessions during their reunion in Europe this week mean that the couple is back together? Maybe, maybe not, according to Us Weekly. “They have a crazy connection,” a source close to Bieber says, but “they aren’t back together.” Another source says it’s anyone’s guess: “Who knows with them?” If they are back together, Bieber can take the credit, according to a Gomez pal: “Justin pursued Selena and she gave in,” the source says.
