CTV on the Go
Here's a daily rundown of the latest buzz from your favourite CTV shows, because if you’re on the go, you still need to know!
Anderson Cooper sends Snooki a baby gift
Is Anderson Cooper visiting the “Jersey Shore” in the near future? Probably not, but the “Silver Fox” did find time to send Snooki and her “baby meatball” a pretty sweet gift.
According to a report by Yahoo, Cooper sent Snooki (Nicole Polizzi) a delicious congratulatory gift following the birth of her son Lorenzo Dominic – two dozen cannolis.
Polizzi was quick to express thanks to Cooper for the kind gesture.
"@andersoncooper THANK U so much, just got ur gift! We love you Mr.Anderstand!" she tweeted.
"Anderson Live" premieres on Sept. 10 on CTV.
Justin Bieber mentors ‘X Factor’ hopefuls
"The X Factor" appears ready to turn its contestants into "Beliebers."
According to industry rumours, Justin Bieber is the latest big name to join "The X Factor" next season. Judge and label mastermind L.A. Reid is in charge of the "25-and-overs," and it is believed that Bieber will aid Reid in mentoring his pool of hopefuls.
On Monday, Bieber and Reid poured fuel on the fire when they conversed over Twitter.
"Long day but great day. @LA_Reid @ScooterBraun just like old times! Thanks," said Bieber.
"Great day with my guys! @justinbieber @scooterbraun @TheXFactorUSA," followed Reid.
"The X Factor" premieres on Sept. 12 at 8 p.m. ET on CTV.
Shenae Grimes ready to step behind the camera on 'ANTM'
"ANTM" will have a Canadian starlette behind the camera when its new episode arrives online at CTV.ca on Saturday at midnight.
Grimes, a Toronto native, will assume the role of guest photographer in the second episode of the show's "College Edition."
Grimes' first love was fashion, as she interned at Fashion Television Canada before landing a starring role on the reboot of "90210." Last summer, she was an intern once again (despite having a steady acting career), this time at Teen Vogue in New York City.
Her official website shares her photographic ventures and fashion blog, including popular posts titled "Shoe of the Week" and "Luxury Wishlist."
