Ashley Jacobs made her controversial return to Southern Charm on Wednesday.
Naturally, she caught a plenty of flak from fans who were not pleased to see her return after all the drama with Thomas Ravenel.
But co-star Landon Clements showed up to declare herself for team Ashley, and she's telling the haters to back off!
On the night of Ashley's return to the series, Landon took to Instagram in solidarity, posting a photo of herself with Ashley.
It's a lovely, simple black and white shot of the two girls smiling and just being buds.
Landon added a supportive caption to the post as well.
"I wish everyone got to meet the girl I know," Landon captions.
Simple and to the point, for sure, but it wasn't enough to sway most of the fans in the comments.
"She should've acted like the girl you know," responded one fan with a sassy, winking emoji.
Others were so offended by the show of support, they were ready to lump Landon in with Ashley
"Kathryn was right about Landon this whole time," said one commentor.
They went on to add, "And to think most of us thought Landon was the southern belle and Kathryn was the crazy one."
But Landon clapped back to set the record straight.
"Give Kathryn a google," Landon replied, adding that she was "sadly up to her old ways."
Kathryn is still in the midst of a vicious custody battle with Thomas Ravenel, who dated and left her before moving on to Ashley.
Landon and Ashley have both been creepily supportive of Thomas, who was arrested in 2018 for sexually assaulting his children's nanny.
Thomas is understandably no longer allowed on Southern Charm, so Ashley is on-hand to replace him as a drama surrogate.
She may mean well, but Landon has a habit of defending people in the most tone-deaf way possible.
She shockingly dismissed the sexual assault allegations aimed at Thomas to Us Weekly, saying, "I know in my heart that Thomas is a good person."
"Whatever happened, happened," she said, adding, "I wasn't there that night."
These remarks are textbook examples of rape culture, and illustrate a tragically common failure of some women to support one another in the face of abuse.
That said, it's encouraging to see Landon come to Ashley's defense here in this moment of social media sisterhood.
Unfortunately for Landon, some fans weren't willing to forget how Ashley had treated the other women on the show.
"She called Kathryn an egg donor," one user recalled, referencing a previous fight between Ashley and Kathryn.
"Any mother would understand how vile and vicious those words are," the commentor added.
But Landon soon responded in defense of those "vile" words.
"I think she meant her behavior reduced her to simply an egg donor when those words were said," Landon recalled about the remarks, as though that changes their meaning.
"Ashley was indeed spending more time with [Kathryn's] kids than her," Landon explained, adding "It's all just so sad."
Being loyal to your friends is a great quality. Standing up for friends when others are calling them out is often a great quality too.
But it's important to be able to see past that loyalty and tell your loved ones that what they did was wrong.
Landon's heart may be in the right place, but she needs to choose her battles a little more carefully.
If you have been following The Bachelorette Spoilers, you know that the drama between Hannah and her fiance continues even after the proposal.
But there was also no shortage of conflict on this week's hometown dates as Hannah faced off with Jed's family.
Now, Jed's sister is claiming that she and Hannah actually got along edit, but that ABC edited her to make her seem like a harpy.
Lily Wyatt took to her Instagram Stories to say that ABC didn't exactly show what really went down when Hannah came for a visit.
"They made me look so mean," she lamented on social media.
Lily followed those words with an emoji of a smiling face both laughing and crying.
"I swear y’all," Lily assured her followers. "Our conversation went wayyyy better than this!"
That's good to hear, even though we all know that editing can only do so much to make someone seem unkind.
On Monday's episode, Jedd's mother Gina was very direct about her concerns that an engagement would distract from his music career.
"I wouldn’t have felt that way before just because he’s a musician,” Gina admitted.
As she pointed out: “You don’t get a diploma to be a musician."
"So I mean," Gina continued. "Jed’s had to have jobs and try to create time and space to do his music."
"It’s his heart and his soul," she expressed. "He couldn’t go to work and do music, so his path is different. It’s very different."
This is when Lily chimed in.
"Him potentially falling in love with you," Lily confessed to Hannah. "I’m not sure that it’s a good thing."
Hannah explained to Chris Harrison that she still wasn't sure which of the final dudes was her person -- she felt torn.
"I don’t know what to do," the leading lady admitted. "I have four great men and I can look at a life with each of them."
Hannah continued: "but I don’t know if I’ve had time to know who my person is because I need more time."
"I want to dive in," she confessed. "And I don’t feel like I’m diving in the way I could with any of the relationships."
This week, Jed himself spoke out about cheating rumors and the backlash that he has faced from fans of the show.
"Hi y’all," Jed's Instagram post began. "Several of you have reached out with messages and questions."
"Please know I’m not able to answer right now," he explained.
"But as soon as I’m able to," Jed promised. "I will."
Questions about the girlfriend he kept even as he joined the show. Questions about him cheating on that girlfriend before he met Hannah.
Jed then got very, very serious.
"Until then, I ask that you please understand how much the actions being taken towards myself, my family, the men on the show," Jed began.
He continued: "and above all, Hannah, are affecting all of our mental and physical health."
Don't harass reality stars.
Even if they're no-good cheating liars. They're real people.
"It goes beyond what is said online."
"Threatening letters and phone calls have been sent to our homes."
"My parents and sister are being verbally attacked in public."
"I beg you to remember what seems like a harmless action is damaging to real people."
"I want to thank all of you who have reached out," Jed expressed.
He continued: "or reserved judgement until I am able to speak openly."
"And," his heartfelt plea concluded. "I can only ask for your patience and kindness until then."
She did it, folks!
Hannah Brown defied the odds, stared history in the face on Monday night and did something no other Bachelorette in history has ever done before.
Tragically, no, we don't mean she punched Luke Parker in the face.
But Brown did visit the hometowns of four suitors, prompting Tyler to say some pretty heavy stuff about the Alabama native while the two were visiting his folks in Florida.
“One day I’ll be able to say ‘I love you,’ and I do believe that I’ll be able to stand 100 percent behind it,” the 26-year old said in an on-camera interview after a successful visit with his relatives.
During his hometown date in Georgia, Luke took Hannah to Sunday school... where he once again relayed the story about how he found Jesus in the shower.
“I was starting to experiment with things like partying and drinking and things that I knew that I shouldn’t be involved with,” the 24-year old explained of his high school years while speaking to a group of young adults from his church.
“And college, it was just crazy. I was chasing sex and I was entangled and caught up in sin of all kinds.”
Chasing sex in college?!? For major shame, dude.
Hannah, who has told off Luke on multiple occasions for the way he has slut and sex-shamed her, appreciated how Parker stuck to these convictions.
“It’s cool to see that Luke really lives his faith,” she said.
From there, Luke took the ex-pageant queen to meet his mother, father, brother, sister-in-law and grandparents.
Neither Brown nor Parker attempted to hide the struggles of their relationship while talking to his family, with the latter admitting that confessing his love after about a half hour caused things to go "downhill" between the pair.
“Sometimes it was like he thought he had it in the bag and it was really frustrating, ‘cause it came across as a little arrogant,” she candidly said of Luke.
Making it evidence that Luke's intense apple didn't fall far from his father's tree, Luke's dad said he totally saw the future "Mrs. Parker" when looking at Hannah -- which is also sort of sexist when you think about it.
But this caused Luke to open way up to his potential wife once more, as he poured it on very thick as follows:
I know that we have struggled. I have put you through a struggle through all of this and I have struggled just completely letting go and I just want to tell you that I am sorry.
We are finally back on track but I know that there still may be concerns that you have about us being able to get where we need to be.
I’m going to continue just to show you who I am. [I] without a doubt I see a future with you. Without a doubt looking in your eyes, I feel like I am looking at my future wife.
And without a doubt I can tell you that I do love you.
"I’m falling in love with Luke."
How would Jed top this during his hometown date in Tennessee?
By declaring his own love for Hannah early on, that's how.
The reality stars started off in Knoxville, where Jed - who allegedly had a girlfriend during his time on the show, remember! - tried to win over Hannah via his music skills.
They wrote and performed their own original song in a recording studio... and he ended their time together by declaring, “I love you. I can feel it.”
Hannah told the camera later that she was "falling in love" with Jed as well.
However, when Hannah met Jed’s family, his mother, Gina, expressed concern that Brown went around sharing that feeling with all of her suitors, to which Hannah replied that this wasn't the case.
“I wouldn’t have felt that way before just because he’s a musician,” Gina told Hannah of whether she felt Jed is ready for marriage, adding:
“You don’t get a diploma to be a musician. So, I mean, Jed’s had to have jobs and try to create time and space to do his music. It’s his heart and his soul. He couldn’t go to work and do music, so his path is different.
"It’s very different.”
Jed's sister agreed that him falling for Hannah could ruin his music career, which was an odd twist and weird thing to say to The Bachelorette.
This made it very confusing for Hannah to decide what to do at the Rose Ceremony.
“I was hoping that hometowns would give me clarity, but my heart is still open to each relationship and doesn’t feel confident in closing the door,” Hannah said in an on-camera interview.
Still, Tyler and Peter earned a flower right away -- only for Hannah to duck away before figuring out the fates of Jed (THE CHEATER) and Luke (THE SEXIST PIG).
“I can’t make a decision,” Hannah claimed to host Chris Harrison.
“I don’t know what to do. I have four great men and I can look at a life with each of them, but I don’t know if I’ve had time to know who my person is because I need more time.
"I want to dive in and I don’t feel like I’m diving in the way I could with any of the relationships.”
How did Harrison help Hannah solve this dilemma?
By giving her the first-ever extra rose! She was permitted to keep all four men around leading into next Monday's episode fantasy suite episode!
“It feels like it was really hard for her to make a decision between me and somebody who’s been a complete scumbag through this whole process,” Jed told the camera.
“I don’t want to be in the same category or even close to the same category as him," he added of Luke.
"He’s been a constant toxin through every bit of this. And to feel like a tossup between me and him now, I don’t know. As of right now, I am so unsure about all this.”
And yet... we're pretty sure he'll gladly get it on with Hannah next week.

According to the latest set of The Bachelorette spoilers we've come across, there's a brand new and unexpected winner of Season 15.
According to previews for this week's episode, meanwhile, viewers were going to be treated to something else new and unexpected:
A naked bungee-jump by Hannah and one of her suitors!
Alas, this did not prove to be entirely accueate, although it wasn't really ABC who lied about the adventurous outing -- it was Garrett.
Early in the installment, he and Hannah did, indeed, take a major plunge off a cliff; their arms wrapped around each other and a very springy rope tied to their ankles.
But Hannah was only topless.
She had underwear on during the long and fast fall, despite what it may have looked like on television and despite what Garrett said about it afterward.
“We decide to bungee jump naked. Naked!” Garrett told the other eight men after also saying he was falling in love with Hannah.
He added in this not-so-humble brag: “I essentially was hugging her and she was hugging me and she put her head right here. It was cool, man.”
Not to Luke Parker it wasn't.
As teased in this disturbing video, the villainous front-runner was PISSED over Hannah daring to get close to another man.
(Have we mentioned yet how much Luke Parkre sucks? Because he sucks!)
"I’m hearing Garrett’s story and I don’t know if that’s how it went down,” Luke said in an on-camera interview.
“Who would want to be naked with that guy? There is no way Hannah went bungee jumping naked with Garrett.”
Luke ended up on the group date with Connor, Dustin, Dylan, Jed, Mike and Tyler C., much to his continued annoyance.
After they explored a Latvian market - where the contingent took moonshine shots and ate pickles and cheese - Hannah confirmed the nude bungee jumping story.
She explained to everyone there that this activity is a Latvian tradition
Shockingly, though, such an explanation did not satisfy Luke.
“Is this like when you’re an official couple kind of tradition?” he asked.
When Hannah replied that they did not have to be an “official couple,” the import/export manager was totally floored. And irate for the most sexist and selfish of reasons.
“I’m shocked,” he said to the cameras.
“This is sheer fact. I mean, this is a woman I want to spend the rest of my life with and [I] totally thought that was crossing a line. Her body is her temple and to expose it to anyone who isn’t her husband, that was a slap in my face.
"If she really is the one for me, which I believe she is, there’s a lot of answers that I need. I have to say something.”
(This is where we remind readers that Luke previously admitted to sleeping around a lot, around the time he was in college, only to claim that God then spoke to him in the shower and basically told him to cut it out.)
With Hannah enjoying herself on a group date, Luke barged in and did his best to slut-shame The Bachelorette.
“Have you ever been cheated on in your relationship?” he started by asking Hannah. “
And then he really went off on her:
"You know that feeling, your stomach turns inside out? It’s just twisted. I’m not gonna lie, I had that feeling this morning. We were about to get sent off for the group date and Garrett stated blurting out a whole bunch of stuff about what happened with you guys on the one-and-one and honestly, like it was hard for me to receive. A
"And it’s just because I know that your body is a temple and honestly I’m just thinking of you holding him, bare-skinned and I’m just thinking in my mind it just pissed me off, it really frustrated me.”
It does make us happy to imagine Luke in pain at least.
But Hannah was understandably anything but happy upon hearing his complaint.
It wasn’t in a sexual way. It was in an experience that I wanted to have for myself," she responded.
Following a steamy spa one-on-one date with Peter and a serenade at her hotel room from Jed (WHO HAS A GIRLFRIEND!), Hannah still could not move on from Luke's harsh words.
She spoke to him prior to the rose ceremony.
This is what she said:
“I so appreciate you coming to me and having a real conversation and actually sharing concerns because I respect that a lot, but the conversation, it didn’t sit well with me.
The issues were the language that you used to describe why you were upset.
You felt like it was a slap in the face because you want to spend the rest of your life with me and then you said, ‘We all make boneheaded mistakes.’ Oh, there was one other thing that really hurt me that you said.
You were talking about me meeting your family and you wanted to be able to feel confident in doing that and it was referring to the bungee jumping thing and I was like, what does that mean with me meeting your family?
I told you it wasn’t a sexual thing at all and it wasn’t.
But even if it was, at this point it doesn’t matter because you’re not my husband. You don’t own my body, you don’t own me. It’s my body.
“I am never going to control you.
"I will never tell you what you can and can’t do with your body. But when we get into things I brought up … I was not referring to that. I was referring to the future.”
Nope, though. This didn't sit well with Hannah, either.
“I want a man that doesn’t take me screaming and in your face to finally be like this,” she said.
“This process doesn’t work if you’re not yourself 100,000 percent. I need to know its real and it’s all the time. Like, why is it so hard with us?”
Luke simply asked Hannah to "keep fighting" for him and, sadly, she agreed to do so.
Instead of sending this sexist pig packing at the rose ceremony, The Bachelorette cut Dylan and Dustin, two men who apparently had not been cut already.
Even host Chris Harrison didn’t understand why Hannah wanted to keep Luke P. in contention
, despite very likely being one of the producers who forced her to do so for the sake of ratings.
“What do you like about Luke?” he asked Hannah.
“I’m either falling in love with Luke, or Luke is making me go crazy,” Hannah responded. “I’m not sure which one."
We're just days away from the debut of The Hills: New Beginnings, and the drama is already starting to boil over.
Spencer Pratt and Heidi Montag will be among the familiar faces, and Pratt's own sister, returning star Stephanie Pratt is already putting the couple on blast.
In a brand new teaser interview for The Hills' hotly anticipated reboot, Spencer and Heidi respond to Stephanie's aspersions, and promise More Drama is on the way!
Speidi showed up to The Hills: New Beginnings premier event on Wednesday, where they were interviewed by E! News' Justin Sylvester.
Justin begins the interview by asking what the couple has been up to, and if the nine years since The Hills ended had been difficult for them.
That's a great question since, as Stephanie's podcast reminds us, the couple has been through some trying times in recent years.
But Heidi is quick to downplay that drama, saying that their hardest years were actually caught on camera during the original run of The Hills.
"That was a really challenging time in our relationship, when our friends were trying to tear us apart," Heidi explains.
According to Heidi, after The Hills, the couple finally got to relax and enjoy life, while Spencer attended USC to get his political science degree.
Next, Justin shifts the focus to Spencer, and his history of being vindictive on the show.
"I feel like you can hold a grudge," the host suggests.
"Yeah, my burn diary is out," Spencer admits, adding that he has a "hit list" of people he still has beef with.
Spencer even jokingly spoils the title of the first episode, "I Don't Hold Grudges... JK!!"
We hope he's kidding, because that's a terrible title. But it's crystal clear that Spencer still relishes the conflict he's known for -- and the screen time that goes with it!
Justin went on to ask Spencer who was the first name on his "hit list" going into the new season.
"Everyone. No one was safe," Spencer replies, looking very pleased with himself.
If that's the case, some of that grudge must be aimed at his sister Stephanie, who will be returning to star in the reboot as well.
But when pressed on the issue, Spencer suddenly becomes quite diplomatic.
"I have no beef with any family member," he assures Justin, adding that "It's totally one-sided."
Of course, just because the beef is one-sided doesn't mean Spencer doesn't deserve Stephanie's ire.
Spencer definitely did a lot of the awful things his sister is mad about, but probably just doesn't care enough to feel any kind of way about it.
He certainly doesn't address any of their specific issues in the interview, saying it all took place off camera.
But when asked if Stephanie was just making the fight up to generate more interest in the series, he simply said "I think Stephanie is a great asset to the show."
That's a suspiciously coy response, coming from someone who's usually embarrassingly forthcoming.
Spencer puts his foot in his mouth just a moment later in fact, after unwittingly accusing co-star Brody Jenner of cheating on his wife!
While hijacking a question clearly posed to Heidi, Spencer proclaims that Brandon Lee is sure to be the new breakout star of the show.
Heidi agrees he's quite the heartbreaker, calling Brandon the "evolution" of Brody's portrayal on the original series.
But then Justin asks which of the two celebs had more game with the ladies.
"Brody Jenner is still the biggest mack on The Hills," Spencer replies, definitively.
"You think Brody Jenner is pulling more girls than Brandon Lee," the interviewer follows up incredulously.
"Yes. Currently," Spencer responds.
What follows is a beautiful, stunned moment of silence as Justin looks at the camera and Spencer slowly realises what he's said.
"Oh, oh wait, he's married. Never mind!" Spencer hastily corrects himself.
Not wanting to touch that, Justin shifts the focus back to Heidi, who tries to smooth over her husband's problematic candor.
"If you don't want the truth out there, you should be scared," she concludes, much to Spencer's delight.
We definitely want the truth out there!
The interview wound down with a look ahead for Speidi's role this season.
We can expect Heidi's arc to deal with being a mom and facing her seperation anxiety from her one-year-old son, who is seriously named Gunner.
The season will also feature Spencer running his healing crystal jewely business, Pratt Daddy Crystals. Yikes.
If New Beginnings is as awkward and high-energy as this interview was, we have a lot to look forward to when the series debuts next week.
Keeping Up with the Kardashians is getting pretty desperate for storylines in Season 16.
It's nothing to be ashamed over. It's something that happens to all long-running television shows.
On Sunday night, however, the reality star really scraped the bottom of the writing barrel, pretending that feuds existed between multiple family members who always get along.
FIRST and FOREMOST, Kendall Jenner and Kourtney Kardashian continued to have beef... for really the dumbest of reasons.
"Kourtney and I have been getting a bit closer over the past couple years and I love that she hangs out with me and my friends," Kendall explained in a confessional.
"But, to be honest, I felt like there were just some moments where she was a bit rude and it really started to get to me at a certain point."
She was referring here to Kourtney coming on a ski vacation with Kendall and allegedly "trying to be cool" by insulting her half-sister all over the place.
For example, the oldest Kardashian put her "muddy" shoes all over Kendall's car, Jenner told Khloe and also told her to "chill the f-ck out" when she was stressed about losing keys while skiing.
Did Kourtney agree with this analysis?
Of course not.
She also confided in Khloe and said the thought Kendall was being "so f-cking annoying," supposedly throwing a fit over adding potatoes to a grocery list and then getting mad when Kourtney said she would cover the cost.
Yes, these were truly, reportedly topics of debate between the loved ones.
"I definitely think it was unfair for Kendall to say I was bullying her," Kourtney told Khloe in the car, adding:
"We were just having a good time. She's just way more uptight than I thought, because I wasn't trying to make fun of her at all."
The argument over the potato actually continued between Kendall and Kourtney later on because the former took major exception to how the latter was making her look.
"Shut the f-ck up she said that," Kendall snapped.
"I did not say one thing about steering off of a f-cking list. This is gonna make me mad, right now. I hate that she's like trying to make herself look better to make me look f-cking crazy.
According to Kendall, she just wanted to avoid "wasting food."
Following her chat with Khloe, a peeved Kendall called up Kourtney to hash things out; that was NOT the end result, however.
"Listen, I don't have time to talk with a lunatic. We can talk when you're ready to talk like an adult," Kourtney told her.
After Khloe tried to make peace, and got blamed herself for spreading so much gossip, this happened:
Naturally, it was revealed that the two sisters were play fighting in order to punish Khloe.
"We came to the conclusion that Khloe made this a little bit worse than it needed to be," Kendall confessed later on.
"So, we decided to stage a little fight to annoy Khloe and freak her out a bit for getting into our business."
This had to be the first time the stars admitted a storyline was fake, right? Progress!
Elsewhere on the episode, Kris got into it with Kylie over... a parking spot? Over Kylie being a successful businesswoman?
It was hard to really tell because this was also so stupid.
“In front of everybody at the office she’s like, ‘Don’t ever park in my parking space again. It’s the one thing that means something to me. I’ve worked so hard,’" Kris told Kourtney over the phone at one point, stunned that Kylie talked down to her.
And also seemingly stunned that Kylie does work, despite Kris often defending her in the past over this exact issue.
"I’m important,” Kris added. “I’ve helped build this business with Kylie and I’m older. I’m the mom. I deserve a little bit of respect.”
How did Kylie feel about her mom challenging her at work? We've also got a clip of this ridiculous exchange and debate below:
What did you think of Keeping Up with the Kardashians this week?
Engrossing and suspenseful and intense and emotional?
Or is Blac Chyna right for once and this show has gotten very contrived and lame?
Two Lukes entered on The Bachelorette this week, both hoping to enter Hannah Brown at some point.
But only one Luke left.
Indeed, the rare Tuesday installment of this beloved ABC franchise produced what amounted to a one-on-one battle for Hannah’s affections, following some serious back and forth between two men with the same first name.
producers make Hannah choose the stalker-ish one who declared his ever-lasting love for her after about three hours?
Or the one who warned her that this guy is a phony who isn’t exactly on the level?
This is what it came down to for Brown this week, who jetted off to Scotland while pondering the decision and giving each suitor a forum with which he could trash the other.
More or less, that is.
At one point, Hannah pulled the two Lukes aside to get them to talk out their differences.
The Bachelorette told these fellas, who previously got into a physical altercation on the rugby pitch, that she was irritated with their accusations against each other, along with their perceived dishonesty.
“I’m not going to sit here and ever tell Hannah anything I don’t believe,” Luke P. said, adding he didn’t see Luke S. as “a fit” for the woman he wanted to be his wife.
Added Luke Parker:
“At the end of the day, I told Hannah how I feel. My feelings about you being here for the right reasons haven’t changed.”
However, Luke S. wasn’t convinced his rival’s intentions were pure, telling him flat out:
“With you, it’s just lie after lie, manipulation after manipulation. I wish Hannah could see what’s going on right now.”
The viewers can see, of course. And numerous celebrities can see, having alerted Hannah to all the clear red flags Parker is basically waving high in the air.
But Hannah continues to either be blinded by love or lust when it comes to this contestant.
Very frustrated by the entire situation, she actually cancelled the night’s cocktail party, calling it a “confusing night” that ended a “hard week” at the subsequent rose ceremony.
Announcing she intended to follow her instincts with the evening’s selection, Luke S. made a point to pull Hannah aside for the final time, telling her he intended to send himself home amid the drama.
“I would just urge you to keep your eyes open for … I think you know who I’m talking about,” he told her, obviously talking about that other, allegedly conniving Luke.
You know, the one who did receive a rose from Hannah.
“Luke P. is still here because my heart wants him to be here – my head doesn’t always want him to be here,” Hannah explained to the camera.
“It makes it really difficult to know what’s the best decision to make. We know we have chemistry, but there are red flags and I honestly haven’t had time to explore our relationship the way it needs to be explored.”
She wants to have sex with him. We think that’s what Hannah is saying here.
With Luke S. outta there due to his drama with the overwhelmingly disliked suitor, Jed warned the rest of the men to watch their backs going forward.
“We’ll have to be really careful in this,” he told the group. “He will do anything to rise up. He will pull anyone down. He’s not a good dude, he’s proven it over and over again.”
This is starting to sound more like Game of Thrones than The Bachelorette, huh?
Tune in next week (on Monday!) to see who figurative dies and who figuratively lives — and click below to read through a bunch of The Bachelorette spoilers.
You may not believe this, readers, but it's true:
Some serious drama reportedly went down on stage at The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Season 9 reunion taping.
Crazy, right?!? You probably thought the special would be calm and collected and that each woman on set would totally keep her cool, no?
According to Us Weekly, Camille Grammer was at the center of the main controversy at this taping, getting into it with a fellow star and even storming away from everyone when things got too testy.
“At one point, Camille ended up walking off the stage and had a full breakdown,” one insider told this tabloid, noting that Camille and Denise Richards “got into it.”
Per a second source, Camille was in a “hot seat" -- and did not react to it well.
Far from it, in fact.
“The women were taking her to task,” this same second source says.
For what reason?
Anyone who has been paying attention this season can likely take a few easy guesses.
Grammer returned to The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills only as a friend during season 8.
She then under fire during season 9 when she was caught talking about her costars - specifically Teddi Mellencamp and Dorit Kemsley - behind their backs.
After filming the aforementioned reunion, the 50-year-old reality star revealed she regretted attending the taping, which took place on Wednesday, June 5 and which will air later this summer.
“I showed up in good faith for #RHOBH reunion but I shouldn’t have gone,” wrote Grammer yesterday. "Hindsight is 20/20.”
Added Grammer of her castmates:
“They have been talking behind my back the whole time. The Hypocrisy of it all.”
While Grammer is clearly looking for some attention here, most of the attention this week was on Lisa Vanderpump, and for good reason:
"I think they've made it pretty impossible for me to go back frankly," Vanderpump told The Daily Mail on Tuesday, June 4 when asked about her return on next season.
Pretty straightforward, huh?
“I have a great relationship with [Bravo]; I just don’t have a great relationship with the women,” she added to Us Weekly on Thursday. “After 17 episodes of them bashing me, I think I’ve had enough of all of them.”
On Tuesday night's The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills after-show, Vanderpump continued to not beat around the bush.
"I've always said I'm not just a Housewife," Lisa said.
"I didn't make a career out of being a Housewife... I don't have time for bullsh-t negative minutiae. I don't."
So there you have it.
Will you miss Vanderpump on the show?
For ages, Kris Jenner has lorded over her family's annual Christmas Eve party with an iron fist.
In this Keeping Up With The Kardashians sneak peek, Kim confronts Kris, hoping that Kanye can make the Kardashians cool again.
Kim wants control of the party. She wants to throw it at her house. And the request reduces Kris to tears. See for yourself:
What's most important about the beginning of this sneak peek is that Kim Kardashian is very evidently in a foul mood.
Kris openly acknowledges this, trying to broach the subject of the Christmas Eve party during what she sarcastically calls Kim's "delicious mood."
"Well," Kris says. "You're a little tough on me as far as doing the same thing every year."
"So," she continues. "I just don't want to disappoint anybody."
Kim explains: "I just think the kids have evolved from just, like, having it be your friends. Because it's kind of this older party."
Kris gets defensive, noting that there are "reindeer" and "hotdog-on-a-stick."
Kim gets real with Kris, saying: "There's literally people we don't know."
"Our Christmas Eve party was a fun party that, I just remember it, being friends and family and my grandparents and cousins," Kim recalls.
Kim explains to the camera: "It was just the best night ever."
"But," she laments. "My mom's been doing it for so long that it's turned into something different."
"Like, it's just kind of a party mostly for my mom," Kim observes. "And mostly her friends."
Viewers are then treated to a flashback, in which Kim pitches these same complaints to her sisters and her grandmother, who agree.
"We want it to be a place that we can just have fun, and it's all of our friends," Kim expresses.
She adds: "And definitely family, and my mom's friends too."
"So," Kim says. "We can have a good time and really just enjoy each other."
Speaking to Kris at the table, Kim suggests: "The time has come that ... maybe we switch the location, and we have it here, at our house."
"I know Kanye, like, loves to put things together," Kim says.
"So," she continues. "If he knows that we're doing the Christmas Eve party, he'll have, like, so many ideas."
"And we just have a different vibe," Kim says. "And different energy."
Dragon energy, right?
This is where it gets confrontational, because Kim tells Kris in no uncertain terms: "We all, collectively -- all the siblings feel that way."
Kris slowly cracks a smile, and says: "So, I'm outnumbered."
"You're outnumbered," Kim confirms.
"Well," Kris says honestly. "That makes me sad."
Seeing that she has already won, Kim tries to be gracious.
"I want you to give us your blessing," Kim hastily tells her mother. "I don't want to just steal it from you."
"No," Kris says. "I want you guys to be able to do this 'til you're my age and one of your kids takes over."
That's a not-so-subtle reminder that Kim won't be young and relevant forever, may one day find herself in this position.
"That's the whole ... that's the joy," Kris says.
Kris then admits: "It's just the thought of actually not doing it at my house. ... I'm getting emotional."
Tearing up, she explains that it's not just a party -- and she's crying because this is a "changing of the guards."
This is a huge milestone for her family.
The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Recap: Brandi Glanville Returns, Throws Major Shade at Lisa Vanderpump
Brandi Glanville was a polarizing cast member during her stint on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.
The best thing about her was that she spoke her mind, and didn't care if she had to throw someone under the bus.
Glanville made a big return to the series during Tuesday's episode, but not as a series regular.
Instead, she has the less coveted "friend of the housewife" role thanks to her new friendship with Denise Richards.
It's a start, right?
But Brandi was back to cause some major drama, and it was all related to PuppyGate.
"She does have a direct hotline to Radar Online, to be honest," Brandi said of Lisa Vanderpump when Denise told her everything.
But Denise was not ready to throw LVP under the bus.
"I don't know her well enough to know if she leaked it or not!" Denise said, trying to refrain from laughing out loud.
"Well, she did for sure," Brandi replied, clearly relishing in the fact that she has a platform to run her mouth.
"And of course she's gonna like you 'cause you're young and pretty and blonde. And she likes pretty things. She liked Dorit, she liked me. If you cross her in any way, which I did..."
Denise wondered whether Brandi was the type of person to cross Lisa or forever maintain her silence during arguments.
"A little bit of both. No, I kinda crossed her. I said, 'You're not telling the truth in this situation.'"
If you watch The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills online, you know that Brandi and Lisa's relationship soured when there were rumors circulating that Mauricio Unmasky was stepping out on Kyle Richards.
Brandi said that Lisa planned to use the allegations to her advantage during a cast trip to Palm Springs.
"Literally, I've spent the past three years being punished for crossing her in a way," Brandi said.
"Why would she do that to a friend, though?" said a confused Denise.
"Because she really, in her head, does nothing wrong," Brandi replied.
"Lisa Vanderpump and I were best friends for five years. Let's be clear," she said a confessional. "Whatever she wants out there, she gets out there."
The conversation quickly turned to Kim Richards and Lisa Rinna's bust-up over PuppyGate. Denise was on team Lisa for that one, but Brandi's loyalty to Kim meant she was against Rinna.
"So Kim called me, and I was like, 'What are you talking about?! She's the sweetest person ever!'" Brandi said. "She's like, 'That bitch!' I'm like, 'Oh, my God.'"
"But why am I a bitch!?" Denise shot back.
"I was trying to reassure her that Lisa Rinna didn't mean anything by it. Was it bad timing? Probably. Was it the right thing to say? Probably not."
"Bad timing, bullshit thing to say..." Brandi hurled back.
"And that's okay! We all f--k up," Denise claimed. "We all make mistakes. All I know is they should just move on from it. It's a f--king bunny."
Elsewhere on this wild installment, Lisa Rinna was trying to help her youngest daughter, Amelia battle anorexia.
At a family barbecue, Harry and Lisa were visibly concerned when Amelia refused to eat at a family barbecue.
But things took a wild turn when Harry tried to tell Amelia to clear the plates ... even though she didn't use any of them.
"Amelia has issues with food," Rinna explained during a confessional.
"You watch Amelia take two steps forward, one step back. It is not an easy, clean, 'Okay, great! You did that, you had that, you had the help.' It's not like that. It's just one day at a time."
"The scariest thing about anorexia is, is she gonna have this forever?" she continued.
"I don't wanna see her suffer. I wanna fix it. You wanna make it go away. You wanna erase it. You just wanna take your child out of pain. You don't want your child to be in pain."
"You can't help but blame yourself," she added. "It's like, what did we do to f--k her up?"
What did you think of all the drama?
RHOBH continues Wednesday on Bravo.
90 Day Fans have only a couple of days to tear themselves away from Larissa Lima's assault trial verdict and prepare for the new episode.
Happily Ever After? returns on Sunday night, and in this clip, Elizabeth tries to put her foot down with Andrei about getting a job. Like, a real job.
But Andrei scoffs at her suggestions, and demands that she not "terrorize" him with her pregnancy. Yikes, dude.
In this 90 Day Fiance: Happily Ever After? sneak peek, Elizabeth gets assertive about Andrei needing to figure out a means of gainful employment.
"I'm fixing up an ad," Andrei tells a pregnant Elizabeth. "Posting it."
"I'm just fixing it up," he adds. "I have to add some stuff."
Andrei then tells the camera: "The difference between America and Moldova is life here is more expensive."
"And I think Elizabeth is a little frustrated because we're not having enough income at this point," he correctly speculates.
Andrei seems confident that his alleged handyman skills, the ones that he did not display at their last home, will solve that problem.
Meanwhile, Elizabeth talks about how busy she was at work that day.
She has real concerns that she will soon reach the point at which, because of her pregnancy, she will have to take time off.
Andrei responds to that by making a strange expression, as if Elizabeth is somehow being overly dramatic.
This ... is not going to endear him to viewers.
This isn't endearing him to his wife, either.
"I don't really think that Andrei realizes how much this is affecting me," Elizabeth admits.
"And," she continues. "It's really coming to a point where it's getting to me."
Elizabeth is worried "because I'm only becoming more and more pregnant and more hormonal and exhausted and stressed."
"And," she correclty expresses. "It shouldn't be that way."
In an apparent attempt to ease the tension that his indolence has created, Andrei offers Elizabeth a drink.
"You wanta beer?" he asks his pregnant wife.
"Yes," Elizabeth answers in a total deadpan. "Please."
"Just messing," Andrei says, sounding amused with himself. "I know you're pregnant."
Careful, Andrei's next big career move idea might be to try his hand at standup.
"So," Elizabeth asks. "Have you tried asking my dad for a job?"
"Oh my God," Andrei replies.
"No," he says firmly. "I'm not going to ask him."
Her face conveying mountains of frustration, emotional exhaustion, and good ol' fashioned physical exhaustion, Elizabeth asks: "Why?"
Andrei's excuse is, frankly, difficult to understand, but it sounds like he thinks that her father will be critical of his work.
"Elizabeth's dad, for her, is saving angel," Andrei assesses, noting that she has gone to her father for assistance.
Andrei thinks that, because he's the "man of the house," this is demeaning to him, which is extremely stupid.
"So ... you're not gonna ask him," Elizabeth asks.
"It's stupid, Lib!" Andrei exclaims foolishly.
Then, she lets him have it.
"Your attitude is stupid!" Elizabeth exclaims. "Just ask him for a damn job. It's not that hard.Ask him for a job!"
Actual job hunts are extremely difficult, particularly in this hell economy. But Andrei has an opportunity that's knocking and he's ignoring it.
"Because of your pride and your ego, you refuse," Elizabeth notes. "And I'm over here stressed out and pregnant, and have all this weight on my shoulders."
Then Andrei demands: "Don't terrorize me with your pregnancy."
Sonja Morgan, where have you been?!
Wednesday's episode of The Real Housewives of New York put the spotlight on the long-term cast member, and it was so much fun.
Luann de Lesseps, who is still struggling with the demands of her cabaret tour wasted no time in telling the ladies all about Sonja showing up at her rehearsals.
Luann was worried because Sonja was jabbering. If you watch The Real Housewives of New York online, you know that Sonja talks fast, but Luann thought the party girl was taking pills.
Sonja said she was only doing alcohol, and that the ladies should probably stop giving Luann the time of day.
While in Miami, Sonja followed that up by getting drunker, and hurling insults at her supposed friends.
She took aim at Luann for marrying Tom D'Agostino, a loser who Sonja got vertical with first.
In all honesty, Sonja should be happy she dodged a bullet with Tom. He wasn't the best suitor for any of the housewives.
Sonja then turned to Ramona because her friend got up close and personal with Harry Dubin, a man that Sonja was engaged to.
Yeah, it was a bizarre chain of events, but there was plenty more to come. Sonja had told Dorinda all about Luann bashing her.
Dorinda has had a weird relationship with Luann of late, and it seems like they're just looking for reasons to fight with each other.
"He was my lover! Why did you go there?!" Sonja shot at Luann when the ladies sat down to dinner.
"You sleep with anything!" Dorinda said to Luann with horror in her eyes. "I would never want you to sleep with anyone I ever dated!"
Luann tried to shut Dorinda up, telling her not to get involved. That did not go down well.
"Don't tell me not to get involved! I'll get involved with whatever I want to!" she shouted at her nemesis.
Dorinda then threatened legal action because she did not want her name to be in Luann's show. Sonja said that she told Luann to stop being so mean about Dorinda in the script.
"Luann, I have been your best advocate," Sonja managed to shout after too many drinks.
Luann rolled her eyes, prompting Sonja to go for the jugular.
"Oh, really? Really?! You wanna start like that?! Maybe you wanna take it down a notch right now. I came to your rehearsal. You're a f--king diva!"
"I'm not a diva," Luann said. "Don't talk to me like that."
"SHUT THE F--K UP!" Sonja hurled "GET OFF YOUR HIGH HORSE! DON'T YOU TELL ME NOT TO TALK TO YOU LIKE THAT, BECAUSE YOU KNOW WHAT, I WILL TALK TO YOU LIKE THAT!"
Luann decided it was best to leave the whole scenario, so she made her way to the bedroom.
Bethenny Frankel arrived to the party late but heard EVERYTHING. She made her way to Luann's room to dole out some advice.
"I'm here to talk. I'm not here to listen," Bethenny said as she entered the room. B said that Luann was bordering on obsessed with her cabaret show.
Luann did not care enough to acknowledge her friend's concerns and Bethenny left.
What do you think of all the drama?
RHONY continues Wednesdays on Bravo.
Should the Roloffs sell their farm?
This has been the main question permeating Little People, Big World this season and it stirred up a bunch of tension between loved ones.
On Tuesday night's installment of the TLC hit, however, the in-fighting stopped for a bit because one member of this famous family faced a question not about the property's future...
... but about his own.
"I've been having a lot of pain in my back and my legs," Zach told the cameras early on, explaining what was happening:
"There's like a tightness to my thighs, there's a weakness in my knees. Something's not going right."
Yikes. That definitely does not sound right.
Considering all the activity surrounding pumpkin season on the farm - as well as playing and coaching soccer and being the father of a energetic toddler - Zach wasn't certain what could have triggered his symptoms.
One second he felt fine, the next second he was actually "paralyzed for a minute," to use his own frightening words.
Afraid mostly for his own safety, but also for what might happen if he was holding young son Jackson when such a symptom kicked in, Zach made an appointment to see a doctor.
He got an MRI there.
"It's scary, because I can't help him, and it's also like we don't know what's causing the issue," wife Tori Roloff confessed.
Unfortunately, upon getting the results back from this big test, Zach and Tori were stunned to learn that his prognosis wasn't very positive:
Zach has been diagnosed with multilevel degenerative disc disease causing spinal stenosis.
"It's a common thing with people with achondroplasia," Zach explained of the condition. "But average-sized people only get it when they're like 60."
Zach is only 29.
As a dwarf, his life expectancy is not very different from that of an average-sized individual; he just needs to face health issues such as this along the way.
(For the record, Jackson is also a dwarf and Tori recently said the odds of their second child being a dwarf is about 50/50.)
With bulging and degenerating discs in his spine pinching the nerves, Zach would need to see a spinal specialist to determine whether he would have to undergo surgery now or later.
Either way, though, it's inevitable. Something must be done to fix his spinal chord.
Discovering that he would almost certainly have to undergo major surgery, Zach admitted he was "in denial," adding:
"Two months, three months ago, I was in a soccer tournament, and now I have arthritis in my back? What's going on here?"
Tori was equally freaked out, telling the camera in a confessional:
"I am scared. That's the worst case scenario in my head for him to have surgery. I'm trying really hard not to panic."
We feel awful for Zach.
After all this debate about the farm and what to do about it, such a defelopment really puts things into perspective, doesn't it?
Yes, whether to sell the farm and move on is a big deal for Amy and Matt Roloff -- but it's nothing at all when compared to the well-being of their child.
Daniel Wright, a former contestant on NBC's reality competition The Biggest Loser, died this week almost two years after first being diagnosed with cancer.
He was 30 years old.
Wright competed on the seventh season of the long-running weight-loss reality series.
He passed away on Sunday morning from leukemia, a multitude of his Biggest Loser costars sadly confirmed on social media.
“I am so so heartbroken to hear about Daniel Wright this morning. He has fought SO HARD during his battle with cancer & more,” former contestant Courtney Crozier Respess wrote on Facebook, for example.
“This man is one of the kindest people I have ever met & is a true difference maker in this world!
"His faith has never faded, even in the darkest of times. I am honored to have known him!!!"
Daniel was married to another former Biggest Loser Star, Rebecca Wright, who had been keeping fans apprised on her husband's health on her Facebook page.
In her most recent update on May 24, she said Wright's doctors were doing an endoscopy at the hospital and asked fans for prayers.
The prognosis did not sound positive.
"So last night Daniel Wright had a lot of blood clots come out of his stool &this morning he threw up blood so they are doing a Endoscopy here in the next couple of hours to find the source of the bleed & then clamp,band,flush,or cauterize the source," the post read.
"This comes with complications be cause he is so sick but more if we do nothing!"
Rebecca continued at this time:
"Yesterday, the Lord broke me down & today because of your prayers & my pleading our Lord has made me warrior strong!! I will let you know when they will be doing the procedure as soon as I know.
"He is much more alert today but still quite foggy. Once that’s all finished they’re going to be switching him back to the CVVHD or continuous dialysis because he's so weak and we need to get him to make that urine!!
"Man alive this is insane & alone seems impossible but with GOD all things are possible. THANK YOU for your prayers & well wish I adore you all!!!!"
Wright was initially diagnosed in October of 2017.
He had started to return to work and to regain some normalcy in his life ... when he relapsed with a more severe case of leukemia in December of 2018, according to his GoFundMe page, which remains active.
Within 24 hours of this relapse, Wright was transported by ambulance to an Iowa City hospital,.
This is where he spent nearly four weeks dealing with “fevers, infections, low blood counts, chemotherapy side effects, and attempts with immunotherapy treatments,” the GoFundMe states.
Wrote Season 12’s Joe Mitchell as a tribute tribute to his friend on Monday.
He's pictured here with Rebecca, shortly after leaving the hospital earlier this year:
Wrote Season 12’s Joe Mitchell as a tribute tribute to his friend on Monday:
“Please keep Rebecca Wright and her family in your thoughts and prayers. After a long heroic fight, my fellow Biggest Loser and Browns fan Daniel Wright is at peace now in our Lord and Saviors arms.
"He was a hero and a man of faith who inspired so many, including me, during his short time on this earth.
"He and his lovely bride showed the whole world what true love, faith and commitment are all about and he will be truly missed."
May Daniel Wright rest in peace.
90 Day Fiance: Happily Ever After? continued with Season 4 through Memorial Weekend.
Last week, we showed you a sneak peek of Larissa confessing something major to Debbie.
Ashley and Jay's drama continues, and Andrei and Elizabeth were frankly almost forgettable this week.
As usual, everyone is worried that Nicole is pouring her heart out to a guy who isn't acting as interested in her.
But Russ finally fessed up to Paola about the secret that he'd been keeping from her.
The biggest news of all was from Pedro, who took an indefinite leave from his marriage, left the country, and visited people who hate his wife.
Look below to see the outrageous things that he did the second that he was away from Chantel.
1. Chantel and Pedro
2. He bought a one-way ticket, folks
3. That's not how Nicole sees it
4. She claims that Pedro is "single" tonight
5. This ... was a mistake
6. Pedro had a lot of fun
Ever since viewers saw the first trailer for 90 Day Fiance: The Other Way, they've wondered what they should think about all 12 people involved.
Now, TLC is dropping individual sneak peeks to give viewers a better impression of individual couples.
This week, we got a look at Corey and Evelin and their love story. Take a look:
"I'm giving up everything I have to follow my heart and move down to Ecuador for love"
"My name is Corey, I'm 32 years old," he says, adding that he is from Washington state.
"I met Evelin in a very beachy, tourist town," Corey reveals.
"I see this girl," Corey narrates. "And she's super pretty."
"She comes walking up to me," he recalls. "And I'm thinking: 'This only happens in the movies, right?'"
"My name is Evelin," her voiceover begins.
"I am 26 years old," she reveals. "And I am from Engabao, Ecuador."
Corey then chimes in to tell viewers what they can expect from the little hamlet where she lives.
"Engabao is covered with pigs," Corey states.
Sure enough, we see pigs and other quadrupeds wandering what appear to be muddy streets.
"it's very scary," Corey admits.
As with any reality show voiceover, it's not made explicitly clear what the context of "scary" is.
We imagine that the antecedent may be the prospect of moving from the United States to a muddy hamlet in Ecuador.
He's not necessarily saying that the place itself is dangerous.
Otherwise, presumably, he would not be moving there.
"But I'm willing to do whatever it takes," Corey expresses as the trailer continues.
He then states: "It's all for Evelin."
We then see a heartbreaking scene in which he speaks to his parents to deliver the news.
"I just wanted to let you guys know that I'm headed down to Ecuador, permanently," he tells his folks.
His mother wipes away a tear.
"Once I arrive in Ecuador," Corey explains to the camera. "I'll have 90 days to propose to Evelin and get married before my visa runs out."
For some of the non-American 90 Day Fiance shows, visitors have all of the time in the world.
But it looks like either Ecuador's immigration laws or TLC (well, Sharp Entertainment) are forcing Corey to stick to the titular timeframe.
A lot of fans have real doubts about whether Corey and Evelin will make it to the alter.
Even more are unsure of whether they should.
He's spent thousands of dollars on her and her family, and the first trailer made it look like maybe she wasn't really into him.
Fortunately, these two are so good together that the Ecuador tourism bureau has a photo of them working side-by-side that they use in ads.
Earlier this month, we revealed the spoiler that Corey and Evelin make it and are very much in love.
The show makes it seem like Evelin has just been bilking Corey for money because she's hot and he's American.
In reality, he's invested in her family's business, he loves exploring the world, and he and Evelin both love surfing together.
And by the way, she's visited the US by his side. The photo at the top of this post is of the two of them in San Francisco.
The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Lisa Vanderpump has vehemently denied accusations that she sold a story about Dorit Kemsley to Radar Online both on and off-screen.
Tuesday's episode of the Bravo hit chronicled Lisa's plight to have scientific proof that she was telling the truth.
The episode kicked off with her and John Sessa making their way to a polygraph examiner's office.
The examiner was named John. Yes, there's another John on this reality TV series.
He said, "I'm neutral, but I've been testing for over 30 years. If she's lying, I'm gonna catch it in a second. If she's telling the truth, she's going to pass."
Vanderpump was ready for the whole thing to be over.
Sessa was the one to choose the "easy" questions to start things off, and one was particularly hilarious.
"Do you think Dorit's face has changed in the last year as much as her accent?" John asked Lisa.
"She's had a head transplant," Lisa said.
"Just don't ask me if Erika's tucking it under, or something like that, because there are some things I can't lie about!"
"Have you ever given a story to Radar Online about Dorit Kemsley abandoning her dog to a shelter?" John went on to ask.
"No," Lisa replied.
"Do you know who gave a story to Radar Online about Dorit abandoning her dog?" John asked, but Lisa denied any knowledge of it.
"Do you think you will ever forget the hurtful accusations made by your close friends?" John asked.
You guessed it, Lisa said "no."
"Do you believe these women who have accused you of giving a story to Radar Online are your true friends?" John asked.
Lisa passed the lie detector test!
Does this mean Lisa 100 percent did not lie? No. Lie detectors are not 100 percent, as much as some people would like to think they are.
Most of the other ladies were not in Beverly Hills. They were in Hawaii preparing for Camille Grammer's wedding.
Erika Jayne and Denise Richards had things on, so they did not attend.
Kyle went on to dish the goodies about the lie detector with a story that sounded completely and utterly fabricated.
"My daughter Alexia's very close friend was burglarized, and her house was under construction when the burglary happened," Kyle explained.
"So they took the construction workers to have a lie-detector test. Guess who was there taking a lie-detector test? Lisa. Lisa Vanderpump was there taking a lie-detector test."
"What?! I'm confused. Why?" said a stunned Dorit.
"She's obviously taking a lie-detector test to say she's innocent from whatever," Kyle replied. "She acts like she's being accused of murder, for God's sake!"
Everyone was in agreement that Lisa took things a little far.
"They're not admissible in court," Mauricio noted as Teddi said that you can train yourself to pass them.
Rinna said that Lisa was only trying to keep up the "perfect" narrative that she wanted everyone to believe.
While that drama was going down, Denise Richards was shooting a Christmas movie with her ex-boyfriend, Patrick Muldoon.
My ex-husband's aged me terribly I think," Denise said to Patrick.
"Charlie came over for Thanksgiving for dinner a few years ago, and he had a hooker in the car in the driveway," she told the camera.
"He was afraid to tell me. 'Uh, you know, well, she's in the driveway. Is it okay if she's in the driveway?' I said, 'Ugh. I'll set a f--king plate.' Even a hooker deserves to have Thanksgiving dinner!"
What did you think of the drama?
Hit the comments below.
He earned the First Impression Rose on The Bachelorette premire.
But Luke Parker truly made an impression on Week 2 of this ABC francjise.
“Luke has the body of a Greek god,” confessed fellow suitor John Paul Jones with reluctant appreciation on Monday night. “The guy looks amazing.”
We've included the visual evidence to go along with this quote above, courtesy of something called "Mr. Right Pageant," which is what the men were forced to participate in during their group date.
Luke stood out for his abdominal muscles and perfectly-sculpted physique.
But he later stood out for his mouth; more specifically, for one word that came out of it.
But we'll get to that in a little bit...
Grant, Luke S., Mike, Jed, Jonathan, John Paul Jones, Dylan and Luke P. were the ones selected to strut their stuff on stage, doing so in front of Alyssa Edwards and Alaska, both of RuPaul's Drag Race fame -- and Miss J of America's Next Top Model.
Each guy rocked a Speedo and had to come up with a talent competition, such as Jed singing and Luke... confessing he's in love?!?
“Hannah I know that the Mr. Right for you is a man that’s going to love you fiercely,” the early front-runner/villain said in front of everyone, adding:
“I can’t believe I’m saying this right now, this is so crazy because it’s so soon, but I can’t hide it. Hannah, I’m genuinely starting to fall in love with you.”
The men rolled their eyes at this claim, along, we assume, with Internet users who do not trust Luke.
But Hannah fell for it, hook, like, amazing six-pack and sinker. She proclaimed Luke the winner. (But she gave Jed, below, the Group Date Rose.)
Later that evening, Luke doubled down on his profession and again, Hannah seems totally into it.
“I am glad you told me - that’s all I’ve been asking for, is for someone to fight for me,” she said. “I asked for bold and you’re bold.”
“I believe him,” she later added. “It makes me feel excited.”
(Editor's Note: Hannah, you've had many six minutes woth of conversations with this guy. Please slow your roll.)
Anyway, on to the one-on-one date: You're up, Tyler G.!
After zooming around and slinging mud at each other via a four-wheeler excursion, the two cuddled up to enjoy the views from the top of the Los Angeles hills.
“I’m feeling revved up like my engine,” Hannah said. “I’m a dirty girl.”
Hannah and this Tyler bonded over their shared anxiousness of dating, with the suitor swearing to try his best to be “real” with her.
From there, he didn't say very much besides repeating how lucky he feels to be with her and constantly emphasizing how "surreal” the entire experience has been.
He earned himself a Rose after asking Hannah about her hopes and dreams.
For the second group date. Devon, Mateo, Darren, Connor J., Kevin, Dustin, Tyler C., Joey, Peter and Garrett met Hannah to go roller skating/roller derby-ing... despite none of them knowing how to stay upright on wheels.
Dustin took a hard fall and earned some shade from Chris Harrison ("He came here for love and he’s leaving with a broken ankle."), but then also some alone time with Hannah during he cocktail hour that night.
The two even swapped some spit after he explained to her that, although he may be quiet, his heart is still in it to win her over.
Cam, however, ended up being the true star of this cocktail hour.
By which we mean he swooped in and insisted on crashing the date and chatting with Hannah.
“Some guys are going to be upset but I can only be true to me. I always say, ABC - always be Cam,” he actually explained of his actions.
“When I’m sitting here thinking about the inevitability of you creating other bonds and relationships, I’m trying not to get over Hannah-lytical,” he added of why he decided to show up.
After Hannah kicks Cam out and Kevin says he exhibited "poor judgment," Dustin is given this Group Date Rose.
This sets the stage for the weekly Cocktail Party, as Cam is agitated over his lack of time with The Bachelorette.
At one point, he steps in to invite both Kevin and Hannah to eat some chicken nuggets with him, prompting the former to grow angry and frustrated.
“I think you’re just coming in at a really weird angle with trying to impose your will,” Kevin said to Cam, adding:
“I think what you did with me tonight was honestly ridiculous as well with the whole chicken nuggets thing. I think you can go f-ck yourself, dude.”
Cam repets his ridiculous ABC motto and we move on from his nonsense... and back to Luke P.!
He's giving Hannah a massage and taking off his shirt and then things get extra awkward when Jed walks in on Hannah and a half-naked Luke P. making out.
“He’s so hot, it’s easy to get caught up in what this is,” Hannah says.
Finally, the rose ceremony comes around and Hannah ends up sending Connor J., Matthew and Daron home.
But the episode isn't over!
Luke P. sneaks away and walks in on Hannah doing her confessional interviews! The two quickly begin yet another hardcore makeout session!
“I felt like time stopped when I was looking you in the eyes for the first time,” Luke tells the star. “Honestly, everything has just been like magical."
“Everything I’m telling you is 100 percent real,” he adds. “You can trust me.”
And, for now at least, Hannah completely does.
Will this continue, though?
Click on the gallery above to scroll through some The Bachelorette spoilers and find out if Luke comes out on top -- of both Hannah and the show in general.
Is she a Real Housewife or not? This is the burning question srrounding Orange County OG Vicki Gunvalson as we build up to the show's 14th season.
Since rumors of her demotion sprang up in February, Vicki's been scrambling to show fans and producers alike that she's relevant enough to remain a full cast member.
Vicki's engagement to Steve Lodge in April was her most recent attempt to offer up something, anything, for the series to use as a storyline.
It seemed like the engagement was supposed to save Vicki's role as a Full Housewife for season 14.
We can even imagine the eventual wedding being perfect fodder for season 15, with a scintillating divorce playing out across later seasons.
Well played, Vicki.
But if Vicki's role is truly safe, why is she absent from the show's promotional material?
An inside source told Us Weekly that Vicki was excluded from the rest of the housewives' group cast photos.
"Last week, the RHOC cast shot their official photos for the next season," the insider revealed.
"Vicki was not included in the group cast photos and they shot multiple options," the source continued.
These annual group cast photos are the ones you'll likely see over and over again throughout the season, wherever the series is advertised.
So it's a pretty big deal for the show's longest-running cast member to be missing from the shot.
If the photographers shot mutliple options for the group and didnt include Vicki in any of them, it seems clear that her ouster was intentional.
Although she didn't pose for the group photo, Vicki was present on the set during the photoshoot, Us Weekly reports.
If she got called to the set, she's almost sure to appear on the show in some capacity. But it's looking more likely that she'll have a reduced role, as fans have speculated
Rumors began to surface in February that Vicki had been demoted to "Friend" of the Housewives, a more ancillary role with presumably less screen time.
It made sense.
Vicki's been on the show a long time after all, and the show needs to make room for new housewives, like this season's Braunwyn Windham-Burke.
Vicki also recently squashed her beef with castmates Tamra Judge and Shannon Beador, which is great for their personal lives, but not great for our entertainment.
Shannon has her ongoing divorce drama with David Beador, and Tamra is the kind of walking nightmare that always gets great ratings, so they're both easy picks to keep.
Okay fine, but for her to still be in negotiations after the season had already started filming is a pretty good sign that her status was up in the air.
Evidence of Vicki being put on the backburner has only piled up since then. Inside sources report she took a 50% pay cut for any potential episodes.
And reports say she's been a holy terror to her costars on set, in an attempt to amp up the drama (and her screen presence).
We also know that Bravo's cameras were present and rolling for Steve's proposal to Vicki.
So, even if she has been friend-zoned, we're sure to get some juicy moments with Vicki Gunvalson this season.
Reduced pay notwithstanding, would it really be so bad to be just a friend of the housewives?
Well, with friends like these.... yeah, probably. But Vicki's official status is still up in the air.
We're sure all will be revealed when The Real Housewives of Orange County returns this summer
Over the weekend of May 11-May 12, 90 Day Fiance: Happily Ever After? filmed its Season 4 Tell All Special.
These specials are always treats, and are broken up into multiple episodes because there's so much drama.
Unlike on regular episodes, the stars actually get to interact with each other.
It's during these Tell Alls when the stars update fans -- sometimes shocking them -- on what has changed for them since their season aired.
Well, what has changed for the Season 4 stars in the months between when Season 4 was filmed and when they filmed the Tell All?
Let's take a look at what viewers can expect:
1. Ashley and Jay
2. Things got so much better
3. And then things got worse
4. This time, it's serious

6. But it gets so much worse
Very sad news today out of the television world.
Troy Dean Shafer, best known as the contractor and host of DIY Network’s restoration series Nashville Flipped, passed away in his sleep on April 28.
He was 38 years old.
The reality star's brother, Tim, told TMZ that there were no warning signs and no previous medical conditions that would have given anyone close to Shafer cause to be concerned.
The family remains in shock over the heartbreaking news.
This same gossip website reports that the coroner's office in Erie, Pennsylvania had not yet performed an autopsy on Troy's body -- but a toxicology report will be finalized in the weeks ahead.
Until then, those close to Shafer and those who worked with him will remain perplexed over what transpired.
"The DIY Network family is sorry to hear about the passing of Troy Dean Shafer, a dedicated, driven entrepreneur and restoration expert who was admired by everyone who worked on the series," the network has said in a statement, concluding:
"We continue to extend our deepest condolences to Troy's family and friends during this difficult time."
Shafer was laid to rest in a small ceremony last week.
He graduated from Penn State University and had actually moved to Nashville to pursue a career in singing.
Ultimately, though, he utilized his construction skills and pitched a home renovation show based in this beloved city, one that focused on homes from the 1800s and early 1900s.
The series, Nashville Flipped, also starred Rob Kuskin and Sean Roberge and premiered in April of 2017.
A year earlier, Shafer opened about his many TV offers but said many had been looking for a “character" -- and that just wasn't him.
“They were looking for some over-the-top drama, and I get it. That makes good TV, and that’s the way a lot of house flipping shows are, but that’s definitely not me,” he told The Nashville Ledger at the time, adding:
“I’m not dramatic, and even if I was, I wouldn’t go on TV and broadcast it, because the show may last one year, but I need this company to last.
"I want to pass this down to kids.
"I don’t want anyone thinking anything other than who I really am.”
Shafter was partly popular due to this sort of attitude; simply put, he kept things real.
Meanwhile, according to Erie County Coroner Lyell Cook, there's a very good chance that drugs played a role in this unexpected passing.
“Given the situation, we strongly suspect drugs were involved and a factor in his death,” Cook told Radar Online.
However, he will not know for certain until the results of the toxicology report come back.
Shafter is survived by his parents, Timothy and Janey Shafer; his brother Tim; as well as a niece, cousins, aunts and uncles - and his wife, Becky, who he married in 2014.
May he rest in peace.
According to a new report, We TV is about to lap up MTV's sloppy seconds.
And, the network hopes, a major bump in ratings as well.
As detailed in the slideshow above, Jenelle Evans has finally been fired from Teen Mom 2.
Rumors of this nature have been swirling for weeks and weeks, even before husband David Eason took everything to an extreme by, literally, murdering his family's dog.
Jenelle's screen time had already been reduced over the course of this past season because cameras couldn't film any time she was around Eason (who was fired last year for outwardly hating gay people)...
... but then Eason shot and killed his own pet and all Hell broke loose.
Sponsored fled from Teen Mom, co-stars confessed to being frightened of Eason and various outlets wondered about the safety of Jenelle's kids.
With so much negative attention on the series, MTV finally released a statement on Tuesday night that read as follows:
MTV ended its relationship with David Eason over a year ago in February 2018 and has not filmed any new episodes of Teen Mom 2 with him since.
Additionally, we have stopped filming with Jenelle Eason as of April 6, 2019 and have no plans to cover her story in the upcoming season.
Evans allegedly learned about her firing at the same time as the public, and she reacted by "crying" a lot, both E! News and Radar Online have claimed.
But TMZ now writes that Jenelle has a reason to smile once again.
Insiders tell the celebrity gossip website that Eason and Evans are all prepared to sign on for Marriage Boot Camp.
The We TV program has reportedly been after this controversial couple for years -- and both halves are now finally free from any other network contracts and prepared to work out their issues in front of a new set of reality TV cameramen.
Sounds totally healthy for them and like it will absolutely fix their relationship, doesn't it?
But Jenelle likely isn't thinking about her actual marriage here.
She's thinking about her family and how to keep feeding it.
“She is broke,” says an insider to Radar, adding the reality star “depends on that quarterly check from MTV."
Evans was banking somewhere in the six figures on an annual basis from her role on Teen Mom 2
That's a huge haul, but let's remember two things:
- Jenelle has three young kids.
- We somehow doubt Jenelle and David manage their money well.
As a result of her alleged financial status, it's not surprising that Evans would be seeking out an immediate new project.
Nor, to be honest, is it surprising that Marriage Boot Camp would want the polarizing star.
It's just sad.
Still, ask yourself right now: Would you tune in to a season that featured a heavy dose of Evans and Eason discussing their romance? Probably, right?
As for how Jenelle's now-former colleagues feel about her dismissal?
"I want to sympathize for my former cast-mate, but at this point I can't," wrote Leah Messer as part of a lengthy Twitter thread. "Enough is enough!"
Randy Houska added that her firing was "far past due," claiming that the network really "drug their ass in doing it."
At the same time, he said what we're all thinking:
"I worry for the kids, and since we’ve been in this for 10 years together, I worry about Jenelle."

While it seemed like Lisa Vanderpump was never going to share the screen with any cast members who were not Denise Richards again, Tuesday's episode found the LVP in the presence of the Kemsleys.
Yes, PK and Dorit Kemsley extended the olive branch to Lisa and her husband, Ken Todd.
The meeting was icy, to say the least. LVP did not want to look in Dorit's direction, but she acted as if nothing had changed between her and PK.
Dorit wasted no time in opening up about her feelings on the matter. She felt like Lisa should have chatted to her before going to TMZ.
Ken chimed in, saying that Lisa defended her during that entire thing and that she found herself losing a lot of friends.
"You have to understand it's very difficult for me to believe you had nothing to so with that," Dorit said, but Lisa had had enough of the drama.
"If you believe I gave the story to Radar Online, we don't have a friendship," she replied.
PK stepped in because he wanted to put PuppyGate behind them, but neither Lisa or Ken was ready to do that.
Ken told Dorit that Lisa was "the most honest person you will ever meet in your life" and "the best friend you will ever have."
"If she doesn't believe her, no friendship!" Ken added.
"I can still say that this happened, but I still love you enough and care for you enough that I can put this behind us. I want to more than anything," Dorit said, prompting Ken to reply, "You're still saying you don't believe her!"
That's when PK changed his tone. He thought someone from Lisa's team leaked the story, but Lisa felt like that was garbage. She said she had no idea of that happening, but she couldn't confirm it.
PK and Lisa agreed to disagree, but Dorit maintained that she could not put it behind them unless Lisa admitted her part.
"No, I care enough about our friendship that I know it has to be based on honesty," Dorit said. "Much like I believe you had something to do with the initial story and the Johns, period."
At that moment, Lisa and PK got up to leave. They were done.
Ken shouted back, "You're no friend of mine. I'm going. PK, I'd like to stay friends with you," while Lisa said "I love you, PK."
Dorit chased after them, and tried to get Lisa to agree to disagree, but she wasn't ready to let it go.
"Bye. Love you," she said while walking out the door.
"How can you say you love me?" Dorit wondered.
Lisa stopped in her tracks and said, "I actually don't."
Dorit met up with the women later on and told them all about the awkward meeting with LVP.
But Kyle Richards was still mad about her argument with PK from a week earlier.
The ladies wondered why PK did not take Dorit's side, and she said it was all down to their "eep friendship."
Kyle admitted that she had a "deep friendship" with Lisa as aswell, prompting Dorit to say that Lisa's friendship with PK was stronger.
"I never even heard of you or PK until 2 years ago!" Camille Grammer said, clearly happy about finding a moment to get a word in.
"Dorit, if you and I are very good friends, you know all my friends," Kyle said in bewilderment.
"I don't know all your friends!" Dorit hurled at her frenemy.
"Well, maybe we're not that good of friends!" Kyle countered.

RHOBH continues Tuesdays on Bravo.
Tinsley Mortimer breathed a huge sigh of relief on Wednesday's The Real Housewives of New York City.
The socialite revealed to her co-stars that the game of "Truth or Dare" made her a single woman.
"After everything that happened at Bethenny's, when I got home, I ended up calling Scott, and I said to him, 'I need more from you. I just need you to be here. Just come to New York,'" Tinsley revealed during a confessional.
"And he said, 'No, I can't.' So -- that's all she wrote."
If you watch The Real Housewives of New York City online, you know that Tinsley has struggled with the long distance between her and Scott.
She even seemingly confirmed that Scott had a controlling nature to him, leading to Bethenny saying that they needed to get her out of the relationship.
Tinsley went to an Al-Anon meeting with Luann de Lesseps and broke the news about the end of the relationship.
"This happened all just after that dinner, but I strangely feel this relief," she claimed, and Luann was ecstatic for her.
It must have been horrifying for the women to watch Tinsley question everything about herself, but she's moved on.
Tinsley told Sonja second about it.
"Did you have to tell me that now? I'm in such a good mood!" Sonja cackled over the news.
Tinsley admitted that Bethenny was partly to blame for it, but noted that it was for the best.
"I'm happy to hear that Tinsley and Scott have broken up. I think it's healthier for her," Sonja told the Bravo cameras.
"No offense to Scott, but sometimes two people aren't meant for each other. And I definitely know that Tinsley depends too much on Scott."
Tinsley waited until she was at Dorinda's to tell Bethenny the news, and she was super excited to tell it.
Tinsley yelled, "Scott and I broke up! Hi! Hello! How are you?"
"There is never any foreplay," Bethenny laughed to the cameras.
"It is literally jam it in, no lube and we are started. Tinsley is the poster child for breakups. She's like (in a high-pitched voice), 'We broke up! Haha! Ding!' I've never seen a better breakup in my life. If I could break up like Tinsley, I'd break up with everybody!"
But that's not what she said to Tinsley's face.
"That wasn't the right relationship for you," Bethenny said warmly.
"That's good news, Tinsley. I thought I was gonna have to get a rope and f--king pull you out. I really did," she added.
Ramona was the most surprised about the news.
"I really thought Tinsley would just be a hanger-onner with Scott," Ramona told the camera.
Elsewhere, there were rumors that Ramona hooked up with her ex-husband, Mario Singer.
"Ramona can't even believe he's there. She turns bright red," Luann recalled. "I've never seen her that cute in ages! I mean, she was like a little schoolgirl!"
Dorinda dished that she heard through the grapevine that Ramona definitely hooked up with Mario.
"Did you hook up with Mario?!" Bethenny yelled.
"Yes! She took him home!" Sonja replied while Ramona yelled back, "Absolutely not."
"He came to the house to walk Coco," Ramona claimed, but Bethenny muttered, "He wanted to walk her p---y, is what he wanted."
"I stroked his face with cream!" Ramona added, while Dorinda said, "Is that the only head you stroked?"
Yikes, but also LOL.

RHONY airs Wednesdays on Bravo.
Jeremy and Audrey Roloff wear quite a few professional hats these days.
They are bloggers, authors and podcast hosts, not to mention social media influencers who peddle advice to other married couples on a near-daily basis, whether it is welcome or not.
But many fans have been wondering something about the twosome for several months now...
... will they ever be reality stars again?
Jeremy and Audrey stunned Little People, Big World viewers when they announced their departure from the show that made them famous almost as soon as the previous season wrapped up last summer.
Wrote Jeremy at the time, explaining where this decision came from:
After 14 years, over 300 episodes, and 17 seasons, the time has come.
A year ago I made the decision that this season would be our last. It has been an amazing run, and I can’t say thank you enough to all of you who have watched and supported us along the ride.
We have the most loyal fans on TV and we appreciate every one of you.
You are what made doing this so fun. We will still be supporting the family as they carry the #LPBW torch onward. This is a decision concerning Audrey and me specifically - the show must go on!
And both the show and the careers of these two Roloffs have gone on.
New episodes of Little People, Big World are currently airing every Tuesday night on TLC, while Audrey and Jeremy have written a very popular memoir.
No matter what those mean trolls may say, the couple is doing quite well at the moment.
But might these universes collide at some point down the line?
Have Audrey and Jeremy truly appeared on their last-ever Little People, Big World episode?
Maybe not, actually.
During a recent appearance on Access Live to promote their aforementioned book, Jeremy touched on why he andn his wife left their family's reality series.
"I just reached a point where it was never really something I said ‘yes’ to, I just grew up doing it,” he explained, adding:
“If you asked me if I’d do it all over again, I’d say ‘yes’ … I wouldn’t trade it for anything, but it’s just a long time. It’s time to do something else."
Fair enough certainly.
This is how we feel and also how his loved ones feel, Jeremy said:
"They all understand. We’ve all been doing it - it’s been a family business for 14 years, like, that’s a long time to be working all together, day in and day out, making TV."
Here's the thing, however:
Jeremy and Audrey remain close to their siblings and the former's parents.
And because Little People, Big World documents the lives of the Roloffs, it's conceivable that Audrey and Jeremy may simply pop up from time to time.
Not as main cast members or anything -- but simply as relatives who are attending a family function.
“I like to say we may have quit the show but we didn’t quit our family,” Jeremy said in this interview. “We still make our cameos and we still go to Jackson’s birthday party and hang out with the family.”
Makes sense to us.
And until we see them on screen again, we can always read revealing quotes - such as Audrey's admission that she let Jeremy touch her below the belt prior to marriage - about their past, present and future.
Not a bad arrangement overall.
Our favorite housewives were still in the Berzerkshires on Wednesday's episode of The Real Housewives of New York City, and that can only mean one thing:
By the end of the installment, there were tears and a great big divide.
Dorinda Medley, who is annoying much of her co-stars these days, decided to take the ladies to Ventfort Hall.
Sonja Morgan was in her element, taking in the beautiful building, but the trip also caused some problems for her.
It reminded her of the townhouse she shared with her ex. Yes, her townhouse was like a studio in comparison, but it still reminded her of that beautiful New York townhouse.
Remember she was trying to get rid of it?
At the mansion, Dorinda was trying to learn everything there was to know about the family who lived in the exquisite abode.
At one point, she even picked up a handwritten letter in one of the rooms, and Sonja was livid. She told her friend to get her fingers off the note and to respect that it was not for her to read.
"Maybe it's all the old wood and the dust and the smell of mold, but it goes from Sonja to Lady Morgan very quickly," Luann de Lesseps said in bewilderment.
Ramona Singer picked up on Sonja's wild behavior and spoke to Dorinda about it at the end of the trip.
When they returned to their living quarters, Sonja could not help but get as drunk as possible. She was knocking those drinks back like they were going out of fashion.
It was pretty bizarre!
Sonja went on one of her drunken tirades of terror, and not one of the women were safe. She asked Bethenny Frankel to indulge in a night of passion with her.
She followed that up by bashing Barbara Kavovit for trying to "steal" Bethenny for her.
"You come near her room tonight, I'm gonna punch your face out," Sonja said to a visibly alarmed Barbara.
"What are you talking about, Sonja?" Dorinda wondered.
"I'm talkin' about the truth!" Sonja shouted.
Bethenny told her to sip some water, and Sonja said that were "goin' all night."
"We're going to the billiards!" she laughed.
Dorinda then tried to get her dog away from Sonja, and the latter lashed out.
The ladies chatted about jewelry they had been given from their exes, and Dorinda chatted about her deceased husband.
"Oh, boy, here we go!" Sonja yelled, but the ladies had no idea what was going on, so they asked her.
"No, I have no problem talking about Richard!" she maintained. "So she doesn't want to talk about my husband?"
Tinsley stepped in, saying that Dorinda took them all out that day.
I said, 'Look at these antiques,' and Dorinda put her paws all over these letters," Sonja complained before shouting, "You got in that house, YOU DON'T TOUCH THOSE F--KING LETTERS! YOU DON'T TOUCH THE F--KING MORGAN LETTERS!" It was pretty embarrassing.
Elsewhere, Bethenny was blindsided by Luann's complaints about the bedroom situation, primarily because Bethenny was one of the few people who tried to help her when she relapsed.
"Why is Luann talking behind my back at all saying any negative thing about me whatsoever in any capacity at all in any iteration whatsoever?!" Bethenny complained to Dorinda.
"She should be saying, 'You are the Lord Jesus Christ,' and I don't even know if I believe in that. I'm not Catholic."
"I really can't wrap my head around that," Bethenny added in a confessional.
"We went through this intervention together, and I didn't do what I did for her because I feel that she owes me, but saying anything negative or anything catty -- zero bandwidth."
RHONY continues Wednesdays on Bravo.
Even though reports say that Vicki Gunvalson is a holy terror on the set of The Real Housewives of Orange County, there is good news.
At least she's on the set at all, right? That was in real doubt for a while.
Now, a report says that Vicki not only fought her way back on camera, but earned her continued status as a Full Housewife.
HollywoodLife reports that Vicki Gunvalson has secured her full time status.
"Vicki is excited to be filming RHOC right now," the insider shares.
"Despite reports and rumors she wasn’t coming back," the source confirms. "She is filming right now."
"And," the insider elaborates. "Is returning to the show."
We've all known for some time that Vicki had eventually succeeded in negotiating her way back on camera.
But the report that she's no longer in danger of being labeled a mere "friend" of the Housewives is new!
Despite reports of high levels of drama while on camera, this report says that things are actually kind of chill when the cameras aren't rolling.
"She and all of the other ladies are having fun," the insider describes.
"And," the source notes. "Things are good right now with Shannon [Beador] and Tamra [Judge], too."
As we are aware, Vicki made nice with both Shanon and Tamra after years of squabbling, feuding, and rumor-spreading.
That left something of a drama vacuum -- which was part of why Bravo wasn't sure that they wanted Vicki back full time.
Clearly, however, Vicki convinced producers that she's the OG from OC for a reason.
Just because they didn't initially see a storyline for her didn't mean that she didn't really have one.
"They started filming a few weeks ago," the insider notes.
"And," the source confirms. "All the ladies from last season are returning."
If it's drama that people want to see, Vicki's ongoing feud with Kelly Dodd is as intense as ever.
Early this year, longtime fans were shocked at reports that Vicki had been fired from the franchise that she helped make what it is today.
Vicki's rumor-mongering and her lack of storyline were said to be the cause.
Some fans couldn't imagine a version of the series without her.
Others felt that it was a welcome change -- and perhaps even long overdue.
But Vicki herself took to Instagram to share that, while others were filming, she hadn't actually been fired.
"Unless you hear it from me, then it’s simply a rumor," Vicki wrote. "I am in negotiations."
How did Vicki save her job during negotiations, when so many considered it a foregone conclusion that she was getting the boot?
Reportedly, boyfriend Steve Lodge saved Vicki's job.
Vicki has allegedly promised producers that she will get engaged to Steve on the show.
That will certainly give her a storyline with which to work.
This engagement won't be just for entertainment value, either.
Reports say that Vicki has assured them that she and Steve will have a huge, romantic wedding for Bravo to film.
That was enough for producers to let her start filming again, but her status as a "friend" or full Housewife remained up in the air.
However you feel about Vicki, only time will tell whether she can pull her weight on this new season.
That said, we'll take reports that she has secured her "full time" status with a grian of salt.
It is not yet confirmed.
The public at large may not know for sure until the new season premieres.
Mike Thalassitis, a former reality star who competed on the third season of the British series Love Island, tragically passed away on Friday.
He was 26 years old.
The BBC reported that Thalassitis’ death was confirmed by his management company, although we have no direct quote from that company ourselves.
There has been no announced cause of death, either.
As mentioned above, Thalassitis competed on the third season of the British reality show back in 2017, where he became known as "Muggy Mike."
He also appeared on Celebs Go Dating a year later in 2018.
According to the Daily Mailt, the ex-reality star was found dead on Friday in his hometown of Essex. That's all the information any outlet appears to have thus far on what transpired.
As far as his biography goes...
Thalassitis was a semi-pro soccer player who played on teams such as Chelmsford City F.C. and St. Albans City F.C.
A London-born athlete, he remained very close to a handful of his Love Island co-stars, many of whom mourned the loss on social media on Saturday.
Johnny Mitchell shared an especially long and poignant tribute.
"I genuinely can't believe what I'm seeing here," he wrote alongside a photo of the two friends smiling.
"My boy from the villa and one of my best mates from the show coming out. An absolute hero and a legend and someone I looked up to since I met him, always full of so much positivity and charisma.
"One of the best people I've ever known taken from us far too soon, I'm heartbroken and can't put into words how much I'm gonna miss you bro!
Here is the photo Mitchell included along with those very kind words:
Elsewhere, Love Island host Caroline Flack referred to Thalassitis a "total gentleman" in her post about him on Instagram.
And Rachel Fenton, another competitor, tweeted: "I'm lost for words. My heart breaks for your family."
Stevenage FC, a soccer team Thalassitis played for during his career, shared its own tribute. It reads:
"Everybody at #StevenageFC is shocked & saddened to hear the tragic news about former player Michael Thalassitis. Our sincerest condolences go to his family & friends."
According to the BBC, Thalassitis was previously in a relationship with The Only Way Is Essex star and country singer Megan McKenna.
Last June, another former Love Island contestant named Sophie Gradon, also passed away.
May Mike Thalassitis rest in peace.
