SYTYCD All-Stars Revealed, Emmy Nom Madness, and a Glee Casting Shocker: Wetpaint’s Week in Review

It was another busy seven days here at the Wetpaint Entertainment offices, between the 2011 Emmy nominees announcement and the bucket-of-cold-water-in-the-face announcement from Glee creator Ryan Murphy. Here are this week's biggest news stories.

We kicked the week off with a tearful Bachelor interview. On Monday, Emily Maynard sat down with Chris Harrison to discuss her break-up with two-time Bachelor Brad Womack. While Emily didn’t reveal much about the split that we didn’t already know, it didn’t make it any easier to see her crying over the demise of her relationship. Heartbreaking!

In even more sour relationship news, The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills’ Okie Taylor Armstrong and her Texas cowboy husband Russell are calling it quits. Since Taylor once described her marriage to Russell as 80% business and 20% romance, the only thing surprising about this divorce is that it didn’t happen sooner. No wonder there have been rumors swirling that Taylor is the “hot mess drama queen” of Season 2. The couple has a 5-year-old daughter, Kennedy, so we just hope the Armstrongs’ custody discussions go more smoothly than Camille and Kelsey Grammers’.

And — believe it or not — there’s even more breakup news from this week: In response to Vinny and The Situation’s untimely Jersey Shore departures (and returns), MTV has finally put its foot down. To show the cast who's boss, the powers that be say they will fire the next guido or guidette who exits the Seaside abode.

Fox reality show So You Think You Can Dance is down to its Top 10, after sending home Alexander Fost and (way overdue) Ryan Ramirez last night. The program also revealed its Season 8 All-Stars, who will be partnering the remaining contestants throughout the second half of the competish. Making the list are All-Star vets tWitch, Allison, Kathryn, Pasha, and Comfort, plus Dancing with the Stars' Chelsie Hightower, Season 5 runner-up Brandon Bryant, Season 1 runner-up Melody Lacayanga, and Season 7 cutie Robert Roldan. Although invited to participate, fan favorite Alex Wong will not be taking the SYTYCD stage as so many peeps had hoped, due to yet another recent injury. Major bummer.

Speaking of SYTYCD, the show earned itself eight Emmy nods this year, including a nomination for Best Reality Competition Program, as well as five of the six Outstanding Choreography slots (for Mandy Moore, Mia Michaels, Stacey Tookey, Travis Wall, and Nappytabs). Also, Cat Deeley was recognized for her hosting skills for the first time this year — you go, girl!

The Wetpaint Entertainment streak didn't stop there — despite snubs to quality programs like The Vampire Diaries and The Secret Life of the American Teenager, some of our shows raked in the nominations. True Blood, Grey's Anatomy, Dancing with the Stars, American Idol, and Glee (with six noms!) all received their share of nominations. Comedy Modern Family, walked away with a whopping 14 nominations, with basically every adult actor in the cast getting a nod for his or her performance. Impressive.

Not awesome? Ryan Murphy recently announced that Chris Colfer, Lea Michele, and Cory Monteith will be leaving the series following Season 3, in an attempt to keep it real. Um, but Finchel is, like, the essence of the show! Crazy.

That wraps up this week in review. Join us next Friday for another edition of all the happenings in Wetpaint Entertainment Land.
