A month of tears, break dancing, rejection, furry hats, more tears, a name change, a stripper with a boyfriend, a peach that needed some kissing, tears, a Speedo, a dork named Kip, a little more tears and Pradeep. Was it all worth it? We’d guess yes! In his own words, The Nerd Formerly Known as Alvaro is “so money” right now. And not just because he’s $50,000 richer, peeps. Kosmo is THE PICK UP ARTIST! And that title is worth more that dollar bills, ya’ll. Right?
Maybe you were wooed by his break-dancing moves, charmed by his tears or freaked out at his hyper tendencies. Maybe you just liked looking at his bod in a Speedo. Ladies liked him enough to kiss close and bounce to new locations, and Mystery liked him so much that he named him The Pick Up Artist. Yes, Kosmo is King!
In our first interview installment, Kosmo (aka Alvaro, if you play that way) opens up about the moment Mystery changed his life, the way some fellow contestants talked to trees, and why his acting career doesn’t necessarily make him a ladies man. Make sure to make the jump to find out why he thinks Scott is like a…
Missed Rilo Kiley at their sold-out Webster Hall shows? So did we, which only compounded our case of the Mondays. The only thing that could salvage our day? Having the adventurous indie darlings over to rock the 20th floor offices of VH1. Which is precisely what they did this morning. To promote their brand new Under the Blacklight, the Kiley stopped by to play us three tracks off their latest.
The band launched into their slinky, sex-worker single “The Moneymaker,” with the lovely Jenny Lewis nailing every note, despite her self-confessed sleepiness. “This is the first time this combination has ever happened,” the floppy-hatted Lewis dead-panned, gesturing to her coffee and her performance. Next up, the band played a bongo-laced version of “Dreamworld,” with co-singer Blake Senett on vocals, before finishing up with the impossibly tiny Lewis warmly belting out the glorious “Silver Lining” (watch the video here). Before they jetted off to their Conan appearance, the band hung around to chat and eat cupcakes. Pop stars — they’re just like us! Check out their latest record here.

- Victoria Beckham is rumored to be joining the Pussycat Dolls for a few performances. Going from the Spice Girls to PCD is like going from working the BunnyRanch to Hunt’s Point. Tragic. [Dlisted]
- Meg White‘s rep denies those sex-tape allegations chalking them up to “a very twisted sense of humor.” I’m more concerned about people’s eyesight than their sense of humor, but hey, that’s me. [TMZ.com]
- The filming for the Sex and the City movie is underway. If we’re lucky, they’ll hold the sex. [CityRag]

A slew of I Love New York 2 Casting Special extras have hit VSPOT, and the personalities involved are so big that it’s shaping up to be a hell of a season. Flavor of Love / Charm School graduates Goldie and Shay “Buckeey” Johnson curate the spots as the producers travel to Chicago, Detroit, Atlanta and New York in hopes of finding men to compete for New York’s affection. Along the way, you’ll meet an Asian dude who goes by the name of “Big Johnson,” a self-professed “partying Indian,” a man who describes himself as “hood and a homeowner,” a father-son team, a guy who claims that “body and joint manipulation is my specialty” and a rather curious fellow who goes by the name “Mr. Bojangle” (no S!), looks like Sisqo and claims that New York “mentally called him” to the audition.
Below, check out one of the clips featuring a thirtysomething virgin and a retired male exotic dancer. Both are pleading to be on the show and both are as portly as they are entertaining.
The I Love New York 2 Casting Special airs Monday, Oct 1 at 9/8c on VH1.

Sexy New York Pics (Sister Patterson Too!)
The Hills star Lauren Conrad and her sidekick Audrina took it all off for their recent Maxim photoshoot, and the results are almost as hot as a catty girlfight outside of Les Deux in Hollywood after a night of vodka tonics. The girls were probably sick of Heidi Montag‘s stick thin bod getting all the attention and wanted to do a little flaunting of their own. Check out video above of the sexiness – nothing beats Lauren throwing rose petals on a bed while dressed in a slinky camisole. Er, except Audrina in a skimpy bra. Justin Bobby approved, we’re sure!
