It's official. Kourtney, Kim and Khloe Kardashian, the Landers sisters (plus one) of the 2010s, will not be taking Miami again. Sources tell us the E! reality show Kourtney & Khloe Take Miami was going to potentially come back as Kim & Kourtney Take Back Miami but the idea was killed. “The New York show is performing really well so the girls will stay in New York to film the next season.” But don't get too excited disappointed. We're not getting rid of them completely. Despite the show not coming back, sources tell us that the sisters are thinking about opening a second Miami outpost of their money laundry boutique, Dash. “The [South Beach] store is packed everyday and doing insane amounts of business," says our source. Plus, adds the source, "The Kardashians love Miami and Khloe's husband [LA Lakers player] Lamar Odom owns a home in Miami." Word is they've got their eyes on Aventura Mall. No decisions or leases have been signed but scouting has begun. We will keep you posted if you can handle it.

Though many of our DVRs have been long disinfected from the virus known as Jersey Shore, apparently many more are still inexplicably watching. Jumping on the germy bandwagon is Hollywood Boxing, who is offering J-Woww and Sammi $50,000 each to get into the ring and beat the you know what out of each other with "huge 24 oz. boxing gloves." Though there's a date set, March 19, a venue has yet to be announced. And while the two Shore skanks would be the star attraction or something, the event will also feature 16 women not on an MTV reality show throwing punches in the ring for cash and prizes. Class, unfortunately, is not one of them.

Like a car accident on I-95, you know you can't help but look, if but for a quick second. Same goes for the trainwreck/90 car pile up called Jersey Shore, whose second season, partly filmed right here in Miami, will debut on MTV tomorrow night. However, like the Blair Witch Project and Paranormal Activity, watching too much Jersey Shore will most likely induce severe nausea. It seems like just yesterday that places like Mynt and pretty much everywhere else not located on Ocean Drive were so aghast, they basically said they'd sooner let a serial killer into their fine establishments than the cast of that show. And wisely so. According to People magazine, the "producers made Miami look as ugly as Seaside Heights, NJ." And that's not even including J-Woww's wardrobe or lack thereof. But if you're gonna watch, you may as well do so at the Catalina, the sister property of the hotel (the Metropole) that probably needed a Hazmat team to sterilize the place after the giddy gang o' guidos packed up their spray tan, Valtrex bottles and Aqua Net and left. And even though the Metropole wisely decided to 86 plans to charge thousands a night for the Snooki Slept Here suite, it doesn't mean they can't celebrate. Which they will tomorrow night at Maxine's Bistro and Bar at the Catalina at 9 p.m. with much food, drink and fanfare--for instance, go dressed as a Jersey Shore cast member and get a free Jersey Shore Situation cocktail. That's almost as good as dressing like a cow for a free sandwich at Chik-Fil-A, though we think we'd rather do that and pay for our cocktail rather than dress like a burnt, overinflated, puffy, pumpkin.

There may be few things worse than being left at the altar--just ask Kiefer Sutherland or the former fiance of the so-called Runaway Bride who staged her kidnapping just to avoid taking that big, scary matrimonial march. But we may have found something that could be worse: a reality show about it all. Yep, Beach Pictures and Pink Sneakers Productions (responsible for such TV gems as Hogan Knows Best, Brooke Knows Best and, best of all in the worst possible way, Miami Social) are casting for their newest reality masterpiece, Left At the Altar, and are on the hunt for brides and grooms who set the big date but chickened out at least a month before the wedding. From losing your bride to losing your pride, it could be considered cathartic for the jilted and the scorned to tell their stories on national TV. Or not. Those who dare to find out are asked to send a picture and their story to email@example.com. One word of advice: make sure you sign a pre-nup.

We've been punked! MTV pulled off a clever little prank, and it turns out that it was just a very special Jersey Shore Soils South Beach episode and the cast of guidos and guidas will soon enough be returning to Seaside, NJ where they belong, according to MTV spokeswoman Emily Yeomans. "Once the boardwalk heats back up, the series will return to the Jersey Shore to complete the season," they said. It was 60 degrees there today, so hopefully it'll be sooner than later even though we were told they are here for the next two months which, in reality show years, is an eternity. No wonder MTV didn't officially announce that season 2 was taking place in Miami. It was all just a little field trip and an elaborate ruse to throw us off (or Miami's lack of enthusiasm) and it may have been the smartest thing MTV did since canceling The Hills.

Roll out the welcome mats, the red carpets, the parties hosted by Snooki with special guest DJ Pauly D', fashion shows by J Wowww, work out sessions with The Situation, spray tanning with the other ones whose names we forget but, you know, the ones riding on this gravy trainwreck, too, and, well you get the picture. They're heeere, them Jersey Shore kids, and Miami's about to get a lot more sensational, and you decide which definition of that word we're using here. Between the hush-hush nature of their arrival and the MTV lockdown on information you'd have thought it was a matter of national security. Even the details of President Obama's April 15 visit to Miami are less secretive than this tried to be. But anyway, the giddy gang of self professed juiceheads and their molls are staying, just as we expected, in the same place as the classy chongas casting we told you about the other day. Yep, as Miami hopefuls for the Latin version of Jersey Shore lined up to outclass each other in front of casting agents at the Catalina Hotel & Beach Club, in walked a well-oiled Ronnie Magro (that's his name!), who emerged from a minivan sporting headphones and a decent tan. Ronnie was pretty low keyed when he walked past Maxine's restaurant. And then, one by one, the rest of Ronnie's entourage arrived a la the Beatles at Shea Stadium circa 1965. The anticipated (?) arrival took a lot longer than expected, perhaps because they were detained by security out of fear they may have been carrying some communicable diseases or because their stashes of gel were over the 3 ounce limit. If you missed it, don't worry. They'll be here for the next two months. But don't go stalking them at the Catalina. That was just a temporary holding cell before their "permanent" digs at sister hotel, the Metropole, was ready for them. But back to those Beatles. As all this excitement happened, none other than Sir Paul McCartney, a bona fide celebrity with talent and pedigree, quietly slipped into his hotel nearby with hardly any fanfarfe. Jersey Shore could end up being a great distraction for real talent who may actually dare to vacation in Miami for a change. In the meantime, who else will join Team Mynt as a Jersey Shore-free zone? Stay tuned for details. We you know you can't wait even if you can't admit it.

After the dust settled on a rumor that no one but us on slow news day, her kids, and maybe Andy Cohen and NeNe Leakes seemed to care about, The Real Housewives of Atlanta's drag queen Doppelganger Kim Zolciak has admitted to Life & Style that she's bisexual. Sort of like the anorexia and bulimia of tabloid confessions of years past, the bisexual card has been played by several bona fide celebs and at the end of the day no one really cares which way these celebs swing. But Zolciak is no celebrity and some say that's why she's coming out, no pun intended, with this latest bit of TMI. According to Zolciak, she and former Miami-based DJ Tracy Young had sparks the first time they met, when the two were in the studio together remixing the aural sludge that was Tardy For the Party, a project that arose via Twitter, of all places. Zolciak had split with the elusive Big Poppa for the umpteenth time and, according to her, Young just ended a 3-year-relationship. "Tracy made the first move. Our kiss was passionate and exciting," Zolciak says in an interview she was probably paid to do. Our source isn't really buying it. "She sounds honest enough to me [in her confession], but I believe it is just another ploy to keep the 15 minutes alive." Perhaps we can see for ourselves as Young is in Miami for Winter Music Conference and Zolciak, never tardy for a publicity party, is said to arrive in Miami sometime tomorrow.
