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.
Dr. Jim Raman, an orthodontist who completed on the 25th season of The Amazing Race, died this past Monday in South Carolina, multiple outlets have confirmed.
He was 42 years old.
According to local authorities, Raman's body was discovered in his home, with Lexington County Coroner Margaret Fisher confirming the tragic news in a statement to WIS-TV that reads:
"Nothing suspicious or criminal is involved with the case you are referencing and out of compassion and respect for family, my office will not comment on it.”
Raman was a native of Irmo, South Carolina and he competed on the long-running CBS reality show in 2014.
He partnered on the global competition with his wife, Misti, finishing in second place overall and winning five of the show's 12 stages.
The couple shared two kids, Lexi and Jimmy.
After their stint on The Amazing Race - on a season that included surfer Bethany Hamilton and country artist Whitney Duncan - they worked together at Irmo Smiles, a dental practice in South Carolina.
The company confirmed the news of Jim’s death in a statement of its own:
Irmo Smiles has suffered a tragic loss this week. It is with deep sadness that we share the news of the passing of Dr. Jim Raman.
As our staff and the family prepare for Dr. Raman’s celebration of life, please join us in praying for peace and comfort during this difficult time.
Your patience is greatly appreciated as we give Dr. Misti Raman time to grieve the loss of her loving husband.
Officials have not released a cause or manner of death, but are continuing to investigate what transpired.
Police were called to the Raman family home at 4:30 a.m. on March 12, Lexington County Sheriff’s Department spokesman Captain Adam Myrick has told WIS-TV, adding simply that Raman was found dead on the scene.
Jim was a graduate of the University of South Carolina.
He received his doctorate in dental medicine from the Medical University of South Carolina’s College of Dental Medicine.
According to obituary published online, funeral services are scheduled to take place at a church in Irmo on Saturday, March 16.
In 2018, Raman wrote a “Letter to the Editor” to The State about his autistic son, urging South Carolina to do more to provide health care coverage for autistic patients.
"As a parent, I would give anything to remove the burden of autism from his life," Jim wrote at the time.
Such sad news.
We send our condolences to his friends, family members and loved ones.
May Dr. Jim Raman rest in peace.
90 Day Fiance is a show about people finding each other across continents and oceans, giving up everything for love.
Naturally, it is filled with some of the most toxic couples and the most vitriolic feuds that you can imagine.
Not all of that bile plays out on camera, either.
Behind the scenes and on social media, 90 Day Fiance stars will wage verbal wars on each other.
Sometimes, it's a rival from their season or a person who was almost family.
Other times, it's people who have only met once or twice, but experience loathing at first sight.
Take a look below and see the most intense feuds that have ever played out among the stars.
1. 90 Day Fiance has a wealth of feuds
2. First, let's address something obvious
3. First of all ...
4. Fernanda vs Larissa
5. Jonathan Rivera got involved

June is in danger of packing on the pounds and proving the haters... right.
So teases the first trailer for From Not to Hot Season 3, which will premiere on WEtv on March 15 and which will once again focus on June Shannon's weight loss.
And then subsequent weight gain.
As loyal fans of this reality star know well, Shannon underwent gastric bypass surgery two years ago and dropped hundreds of pounds.
She became practically unrecognizable.
The first season of this Here Comes Honey Boo Boo spinoff chronicled June's incredible transformation, but Season 2 then tracked the changes in her life after she gained a bit of the weight back.
Where do we find June and company on Season 3?
The teaser here depicts Shannon scarfing down on a lot of food, as the very excited narrator asks:
Is she chowing down on stress?
Or is she eating for two?
Yes, producers want us to believe that Shannon is pregnant, as she even says in the footage at one point: "Grandma Flo is a little late for her visit this month."
We then see her at the doctor's office, where she gets examined and finds out whether Alana and Pumpkin really are about to get a sibling or not.
“I’ve gained a little bit of weight back,” June admits to the camera. “But I’m not ever gonna be 450 pounds again."
This video also gives us a look at Jennifer Lamb, Shannon's ex-husband'ss wife, who is going through a transformation of her own.
After choosing having a gastric sleeve herself last season, it looks like Lamb will at last go under the knife when the series returns -- leading to June's "biggest showdown ever with her arch enemy."
Elsewhere: Will Gene leave June? How will Alana fare on Dancing with the Stars Junior?
And to whom is Gene referring when he says "I think she's gonna die?!?"
All these questions and more will be answered on From Not to Hot Season 3!
Check out the preview now!
Jake Harris is in major trouble with the law.
The former Deadliest Catch star was arrested on January 23 for felony DUI and drug possession, as reported by TMZ.
Details are still coming in, but this is what we know so far about the incident...
It took place in Skagit County, Washington where police say the 33-year-old refused to identify himself to park rangers, after they tried pulling him over.
In response to this attempt, Harris took off with his RV, prompting state troopers to turn on their sirens chase him down and force him down.
Once they managed to do so, the legal problems only became worse for Harris.
Authorities say the troopers noticed signs of drug use on the ex-reality star, most prominently pinpoint pupils, bloodshot eyes and a pale face.
They also say he was jittery, unable to stand still and just shaking the whole time - while also talking very quickly.
As if these signs were not sufficient evidence, a K-9 alerted cops to drugs in the RV.
From here, once again, it got even worse...
Police allegedly discovered a half ounce of heroin and other paraphernalia associated with the selling of drugs.
Moreover, they found a shotgun Harris claims he purchased from someone for $150 and a "ball" of heroin... which was stolen.
Harris He was arrested and charged with four felonies:
2. Possession of a controlled substance,
3. Maintaining a vehicle or premises for drug trafficking.
4. Possession of a stolen firearm.
Heck, Harris was even driving on a suspended license.
Harris was skipper of the Cornelia Marie prior to leaving Deadliest Catch in 2012.
His struggled with drugs over the years have been well-noted and publicized, never more so when he was nearly beaten to death in November of 2016.
According to local Washington officers at the time, Harris got into a car with multiple individuals... and was thrown out at some point.
He was discovered by the police with injuries so serious that he was transported to the ICU.
Based on a message posted by his brother, Josh, shortly after the assault, Harris was bleeding from the brain and came close to dying.
“They literally beat my brother, left him for dead, threw him out of a moving vehicle onto the side of the freeway," Josh told fans in an update back then, adding:
"Luckily the people that were behind the vehicle that he got thrown out of ended up seeing my brother and called 911.”
The people responsible for this beating were eventually arrested and, to this day, it's unknown exactly what transpired and/or why.
But many folks believe drugs were involvd.
Harris' bail for this new arrest, meanwhile, has been set at $200,000.
Celebrity Big Brother crowned a winner on Wednesday night's two-hour season finale.
At the top of the episode, we had the second to last HOH competition, and Ricky realized it was time for him to start winning things.
He opted to put Kandi and Dina on the block after complaining that both women would not hesitate to take him out of the house.
The dude had never watch Big Brother before because he was all about people doing whatever he told them to.
Tamar was quick to tell Kandi that she needed to win the veto competition or she was likely toast.
Lolo won the veto and during the live telecast decided to leave the nominations the same. With Ricky and Tamar being her only allies, this was the best course of action.
During the live eviction, Lolo decided to evict Kandi, while Tamar went with Dina. This was to force a 1-1 tie. Ricky sent Kandi packing.
That left us with the final four, and the final HOH competition of the season.
- Round 1: Everyone gets a point
- Round 2: Ricky & Tamar get a point
- Round 3: Lolo, Ricky, & Tamar get a point
- Round 4: Lolo, Ricky, & Tamar get a point
- Round 5: Lolo, Ricky, & Tamar get a point
- Round 6: Ricky gets a point
- Round 7: Lolo & Tamar get a point
- Tiebreaker: Final HOH is Ricky!
Winning two back-to-back HOH competition was a big move, but Ricky had to evict two houseguests on the spot.
Ricky decided that Tamar was his best option, sending Dina and Lolo packing ahead of the final vote. Dina took it well, because, well, she won zero competitions in the house.
Lolo on the other hand, well, she was pissed!
“Fifty thousand dollars, after he gets second [place] — after taxes and his agent’s fee, it’s really not much,” Lolo complained to Julie.
If anything, this solidified the fact that Lolo is not a team player. Her attitude throughout the game has rubbed a lot of fans the wrong way.
The funniest part of her being out the house was putting her hand up for Ryan Lochte to hit it. It was like she forgot the way she treated him. She flipped the bird at him, cussed at him, and told numerous lies.
Her behavior was bizarre.
After some tense back and forth, the jury made their decision and the votes played out as follows:
- Jonathan votes: Tamar
- Ryan votes: Tamar
- Joey votes: Tamar
- Kato votes: Tamar
- Natalie votes: Tamar
- Tom votes: Tamar
- Kandi votes: Tamar
- Dina votes: Tamar
- Lolo votes: Tamar
Tamar Braxton won the season by a vote of 9-0. That's what they call a landslide in Big Brother terms.
The only other time a houseguest won by a unanimous vote was when Dan Gheesling manipulated his way to victory on Season 10.
Tom Green went on to win $25,000 to be crowned America's Favorite Houseguest.
What are your thoughts on the finale?

The couples appear to be dropping like flies on Temptation Island.
That's sort of what happens when you go on a reality show that makes couples live apart in houses that have various singles.
The show went for a refreshing take to the second dates:
The couples got the opportunity to choose which of the eligible singles they wanted to go on a date with. This was done well away from the prying eyes of their significant others.
Did this lead to jealous couples leaving the island with the fear that the dates went a little too well?
Not a chance in hell.
Kaci was still not impressed by Evan's antics. She wanted her boyfriend to realize that their relationship was worth salvaging, but she was not ruling out getting close to her date Justin.
Justin was easy on the eyes and had a no-nonsense approach to cheating. In short, he was the polar opposite of Evan.
"My date with Justin actually taught me a lot, and it just really opened my eyes that if Evan does blindside me at the end of this that I really need to move on and cut that out of my life,” Kaci admitted, adding:
“It’s not what I deserve.”
She had a point, but why did she need to come on TV to come to that conclusion?
Evan is an ass, and Kaci needs to cut him out of her life before leaving the island.
Then there was Nicole. Her guard was up during the date with Jack, and for most of her relationship with Karl.
“I’m realizing that Karl and I haven’t opened up as deeply as I thought in our relationship, and being able to open up and be vulnerable with somebody I just met — it’s a whole new perspective to me on our relationship and what I really need to be striving for,” she said in a confessional.
Maybe she has a point, but does she have cause to drop Karl like a hot potato at this stage?
Elsewhere, Evan was all about trying to bury the hatchet with Morgan, and it seems like there's actually some chemistry between them.
Spending more time together, they seemed to agree there could be something there if they worked on it.
“I did not think this was gonna happen like this,” Evan said in his confessional. “I’d be lying if I said I’m not going to explore whatever she’s got.”
But the drama switched into high gear when Evan was shown the video of Kaci's date, and her chatting about his status as a cheater.
“I’m not a cheater anymore, man, and that hurts,” Evan said as though he was about to burst out crying.
Maybe this show should be called Karma Island because something tells me Evan is going to be bawling the whole season when Kaci finds her upgrade.
Temptation Island continues Tuesdays on USA Network.
The Bachelor aired a few light-hearted moments on January 28, but a bulk of this unique episode was dedicated to a very serious subject matter.
During her one-on-one date with Colton, Caelynn Miller-Keyes opened up about having been sexually assaulted in college.
It was a raw and honest and upsetting conversation, though one that certainly captured the attention of all viewers.
We admire Caelynn for telling her story in this manner.
How did Colton react? What else transpired this week? And who was sent home?
Scroll down for a recap of this special episode (and visit our section of The Bachelor spoilers if you wish to see what happens next)…
1. What Had We Seen Thus Far from Caelynn?
2. But That Feud Was Not an Issue This Week
3. "Something Really Bad Happened"
4. This is What Happened:
5. The Trauma Continued…
6. One Student Was Expelled. The Others Got Away with It.
It seems like it was only weeks ago that we watched the The Real Housewives of New York City Season 10 reunion.
Now, Bravo has released the trailer for Season 10.
The trailer itself, as you can see, is a work of art. We cannot wait for the actual season to begin.
The Real Housewives of New York City is returning for Season 11 on March 6.
We are nearly at February, the shortest month of the year. March is not far off at all.
Season 11 will pick up with elements of Season 10.
One of those is Dorinda's "Jovani" heckle. You can bet that Luann didn't forget.
Another blast from the past is Tinsley's quest for a husband.
But the trailer stars with Bethenny pulling up and calling Sonja Morgan a "hooker," so you know it's off to a good start.
Catcalling is fun if it's from your friends.
There is a lot of partying and very little context in early parts of the trailer.
We of course recognize the stunning Halloween costumes.
There's also a butt.
Bravo usually reserves its peaches for The Real Housewives of Atlanta, but made an exception.
We also see a number of the Housewives making out with each other, which isn't hugely unusual party behavior.
Speaking of parties, they head down to the Sunshine State — to Miami, specifically.
If the timing of one of the clips were slightly different, people would be accusing Bethenny Frankel of being a witch.
At one point while everyone is living it up in Miami, Bethenny admonishes Sonja.
"Go to f–king sleep, now," Bethenny insists.
(You know how some people get super bossy when they're drunk? Well, Bethenny takes that to whole new levels)
Sonja just … collapses and falls out of her chair.
We don't think that this was what Bethenny meant.
Speaking of Bethenny (when are we, in our hearts, not speaking of her?) but on a much sadder note …
In the trailer, a tearful Bethenny can be seen coping with the sudden death of Dennis Shields.
"There was a lot in my mind about him dying," she admits.
"I could not get off the ride," Bethenny says of their on-again, off-again relationship.
"I feel guilty," she confesses. "That the only way I could get off the ride is that he’s dead."
It is normal to have mixed feelings about the death of a loved one. It is part of coping.
Luann de Lesseps is, of course, doing much better than she was a year ago.
"Nine months ago I was in jail," Luann cheers. "And now I'm a cabaret star, it's insane!"
She laughs with glee and is clearly pouring herself into her stage work.
This does seem to bring her into conflict with Bethenny for a moment that we just had to turn into a .gif.
"I can't even believe you act this way," an exhasperated Bethenny lashes out.
"‘Cabaret, cabaret, cabaret!' Life is not a cabaret!" Bethenny insists, which would make a hell of an audition for the villain in a musical.
Finally, Bethenny tells Luann: "You're insufferable!"
We hope that the two of them managed to patch things up after this outburst.
Bethenny, Dorinda, Sonja, Ramona, and Tinsley are joined this season by Barbara Kavovit and Jill Zarin.
While there are a number of friendships among the Housewives, this will clearly not pressure them to hold back.
It looks like just about every possible conflict comes to light, and we cannot wait to see it all play out.
Celebrity Big Brother is in full swing, and with two people out of the house, it was time for the houseguests to work on their list of targets.
Ryan was blindsided by Jonathan's eviction, and he vowed to go after Tamar, Lolo, and Natalie because the vote confirmed they were no longer working with him.
There was one lone vote to evict Kandi, and everyone wondered who was the one to try and get the Real Housewife out of the house.
Naturally, everyone thought Tamar was to blame, and she was not impressed.
"Jonathan was in Mean Girls, Lindsay Lohan was in Mean Girls, that was like, uh, 2000 years ago, they’ve been friends forever,” she says. “Of course she’s gonna keep him in the house.”
Ryan quickly started to worry about his future in the house and realized that his only hope of safety was for Joey to win HOH.
Yeah, Joey is the same person Ryan nominated for eviction just a few days ago, but what else is he supposed to do at this stage?
Tamar followed up her previous rant about Dina being the lone vote for Kandi by saying:
“She’s 52 years old; that girl don’t know nothing.”
We then moved on to the next HOH competition which was an endurance one. Ryan watched on the sidelines as he worried about his future.
It came down to Kato and Natalie, with the former offering the former WWE worker safety, so she dropped down because she felt there was no point in winning a competition this early into the game.
Ryan turned to Kato with a deal of his own: Allow him to pick off the other players, and carry him to the end.
But Kato recognized that Ryan was doing it out of desperation.
Tamar then complained at Natalie for making a deal without consulting her alliance, but Natalie felt she could be better in next week's competition.
Elsewhere, Dina continued to drag Kato for lying to her face about the votes, and Lolo did not seem to enthused to be seen talking to her.
Lolo took the news to Tamar, and the pair started bickering once again. Oh yes, these women hate each other.
Tamar then complained that she was ready to leave the game and set out to throw everyone under the bus.
In the end, Dina and Tamar were on the block for eviction.
What are your thoughts on all the latest scheming?

Celebrity Big Brother continues tonight at 8/7c on CBS.
When the Celebrity Big Brother live feeds opened on Tuesday night, many eagle-eyed viewers noticed a glaring omission to the cast:
Anthony Scaramucci. The man who lasted ten or eleven days inside the White House had seemingly left the Big Brother house in just six days.
While he resurfaced at an event in Switzerland, Friday's episode of the CBS juggernaut was all about filling in the blanks.
It turns out, Anthony was always supposed to stay in the house for a handful of days. He appeared via video message in a President Trump-like set-up and revealed the new to his houseguests.
“I’m actually not a Big Brother houseguest, but I am part of a Big Brother twist” the former White House Director of Communications revealed at the top of the hour.
“Just like I left my mark in Washington, I’m going to leave my mark on the Big Brother game. First off: From this moment on, I’m out of the house."
"That means you’re all one step closer to the quarter-million dollar prize. The Big Brother house is just like my experience in Washington; you get judged quickly before people know who you really are — and you don’t get a second chance."
"So I’m giving the current nominees a second chance at safety.”
With that, we learned that there was one more veto competition for the week, giving Jonathan and Tom a second chance to get off the block.
Before that, Ryan had to nominate another houseguest to take the Mooch's place on the block.
He chose Kandi Burruss, citing the fact that their personalities “don’t really mesh.” Yes, really, and Kandi was pissed.
Ryan immediately followed up her nomination by trying to hug her, but she was not about all the fakery, so she told the Olympian to keep his distance from her.
Kato won the special POV, meaning the nominations would remain the same, or they could be changed in some way.
Kato went with saving his ally, Tom, and Ryan was forced to nominate another houseguest. He went with Joey Lawrence this time.
- Dina votes to evict: Kandi
- Kato votes to evict: Jonathan
- Tamar votes to evict: Jonathan
- Ricky votes to evict: Jonathan
- Tom votes to evict: Jonathan
- Lolo votes to evict: Jonathan
- Natalie votes to evict: Jonathan
Jonathan was the first houseguest evicted.
“It went really well, Julie,” Jonathan complained, adding:
“Don’t team up with a gold medalist as soon as you enter the house. It’ll put a target on your back.”
As for Julie, well she dragged Jonathan for trying to save Dina and not telling his allies.

Big Brother continues Sunday at 8/7c on CBS.
It's hard to believe it, but Teresa Giudice took part in her first bodybuilding competition on Wednesday's The Real of Housewives of New Jersey.
Oh yes, we're talking about the woman who made a career for herself out of flipping tables with all of her might and flying off the handle at her co-stars for the littlest of things.
The truth is, Teresa could probably dominate in the UFC if she put her mind to it.
But she had to settle for the bodybuilding competition we've heard so much about of late.
If you watch The Real Housewives of New Jersey online, you know that Teresa's trainer previously said her body looked like "s--t" because she was not following the low carb, high fitness regime.
Hey, it's tough going when it comes to these competitions, but did she manage to get it together for the big competition?
Teresa took to the stage looking ripped, tanned and ready for action donning a purple bikini.
The episode kicked off with Frank Catania giving Teresa a pre-show rub-down.
"I love my job," he gushed before teasing:
"As long as you don't send this to Joe."
Teresa was still unsure about whether telling her husband Joe about her new hobby.
'I've been on the fence whether or not I should tell Joe that I'm doing this bikini competition,' she admitted she said.
This comes weeks after Giudice revealed her husband previously told her she would not be taking part.
"I never know how he's going to react to things, but then a week ago, I did tell him about it. And he just said, 'I hope you win.'"
"I was kind of shocked. I was like, 'Oh wow, he is changing in there.'"
Either that or he was too busy worrying about the prospect of being separated from his family if he was deported.
The action then moved to two days before the competition, and Teresa was having a workout with Frank.
"Your butt's getting a little smaller now, isn't it," he said.
"I am getting nervous about getting onstage. I'm wearing a thong! Onstage, in front of everyone, but I've worked hard to get my body into the best shape it's ever been."
We then learned more details about Teresa's eye-popping tan.
"Guys, the darker you are, the more defined you look, the more ripped you look," Frank told Teresa and his son, Frankie.
"'Over the past six months, so much of my life has changed," Teresa laughed.
"I've worked out and practiced posing for over a thousand hours. I can't believe it boils down to two minutes on stage. That's crazy to me," she added.
"This whole journey has completely changed me," she said after taking to the stage and coming in third place.
That's an excellent result for a first timer.
"For the first time in my life, I got to do something just for me. I've never been this independent, and I love it."
Teresa then geared up for her trip to Mexico with the girls, but stressed that she would find it difficult letting her hair down after being allowed to drink.
"I'm not trying to be like Miss Bodybuilding New Jersey, but I did like the lifestyle. I loved eating clean; I loved working out. So I do want to keep it going."
The girls then got Teresa a necklace with the word "Strong" on it, but Jennifer Aydin was not impressed.
"Did you guys know my brother is a jeweler? He probably would have done it for a fraction of a cost," said the obnoxious new housewife. "It would have came out better if my brother did it."
"Jen is really missing the point of this necklace: It's to honor Teresa," Jackie said of Jen's antics. "It's not so her brother can get a sale."
"Why would I f***ing pay for something from a jeweler that's not my brother?" Jennifer complained when Margaret made a comment about her being too drunk.
"You know what? It's f***ing ugly. Sorry, Teresa," she continued. "I don't like it."
Jennifer then said something about her being "on point," and Margaret was done listening.
"Really? So is your f***ing lipliner, why don't you fix it?" Margaret yelled.
"Jealous much, b****?" Jennifer said after fixing the lips, prompting Margaret to scream:
"Looks like a monkey's a**hole."
"Yeah, a monkey's a**hole that you sucked, probably!" Jennifer hurled back.
Danielle Staub then stepped in to defend Jennifer and took her away from the table.
"I'm sorry, your necklace is beautiful," Jennifer told Teresa.
"I'm all about saying how you feel. And I love your lip-liner," Teresa said with a grin.
Okay, what the eff is going on?
RHONJ continues Wednesday on Bravo.
It's hard to believe, but Wednesday's episode of Celebrity Big Brother (yes, we are still calling it that!) had more drama than the entirety of the show's first season.
With alliances crumbling, old feuds coming to light, and brand new twists, there was a lot of action.
When the episode got underway, Jonathan, Tom, and Anthony were on the block, and Jonathan was starting to worry about his prospects in the game.
Not helping matters was that Lolo, Natalie, and Tamar were already gunning for Jonathan because they realized he was the one who moved the target away from Dina.
The trio started to strategize and realized that it was already time to turn their back on the alliance that was created just one episode before.
This is party Ryan's fault for allowing himself to be swayed by Jonathan. The pair flat-out lied to their alliance about the nominees and flipped the script at the last minute.
Lolo followed this up by yelling that both Ryan and Jonathan were in a final two before flipping the bird at the pictures of the two men.
What made this more embarrassing was that she performed this act in full view of the two men she was dragging.
For someone who thinks she knows how Big Brother works, she missed the mark on this one. Ryan then pondered whether it would be a good idea to backdoor Lolo.
The weird thing here is just how fast this relationship combusted. They went from being Olympians and friends to enemies quickly.
Ricky went on to win the POV competition, and Ryan asked him to use the veto so that he and the other men could wipe out the girls.
Ricky took this to Lolo who acted as dumb as a bag of rocks when she wondered why Ryan would turn on her so quickly.
Then there was Tamar and Kandi who couldn't strategize because they were too busy bickering about something that happened over a year ago while they were on tour.
“I was having trouble with my marriage,” Tamar revealed, adding:
“I was having issues with my career. Things were like all over the place. You personally interjected yourself in the situation by talking crazy about me when you should have just said nothing.”
“Okay,” Kandi said. “On the tour, I wasn’t thinking about that stuff. I thought we had moved on.”
“I thought it was totally ugly disrespectful and unprofessional,” Tamara fired back.
“I had to endure being uncomfortable at work,” Tamar continued while also claiming that Xscape members messed with her set.
“We would not do that on purpose,” Kandi insisted in a confessional. “We were happy she was there. Whatever she is thinking is clearly a misunderstanding.”
Tamar turned on the waterworks prompting Kandi to cackled like an old witch because Tamar was so extra. The only thing this did was put the two women further at odds with each other.
“I’m not taking all that cackling,” Tamar complained. “For you to laugh...”
“I wasn’t trying to attack you,” Kandi responded.
“The fact she’s trying to make me this villain in her life is totally ridiculous,” Kandi later said.
Tamar's day went from bad to worse when Natalie and Lolo walked into the room and started brainstorming names for their final two. Tamar was in the room, and the pair failed to check if the room was empty.
Yeah, you couldn't make this stuff up. Tamar was mad, but she tried to imply she was cool with it.
What followed was Tamar making a comment about hitting Lolo in the throat, but claimed it was a joke when Lolo geared up for a fight.
While the pair managed to patch things up, this feud has started, and it's not going to be over any time soon.
In the end, Ricky stirred up all the drama and decided against using the POV, noting that he was intent on stirring the pot.

Big Brother continues Friday at 8/7c on CBS.
Celebrity Big Brother Season 2 got underway on Monday night, and it found 12 celebrities (if you can call most of them that!) entering the house to battle for a cash prize.
There was a Real Housewife (Kandi Burruss), Lindsay Lohan's mother (Dina Lohan), Anthony Scaramucci, and even that loser Ryan Lochte.
Yeah, we think it's fair to say CBS scraped the bottom of the barrel with most of these options, and most viewers will be looking at this edition as a bonus winter season featuring regular houseguests.
There wasn't much in the way of action during this opening installment, but we'll run down some of the highlights for you.
Tamar Braxton and Kandi had some beef before entering the house, and it was evident based on the confessionals that there were still some negative feelings between them.
Tamar opted to kill Kandi with kindness by offering to work as a pair with her during the first HOH competition. Whether these two will be able to play nice when the heat is turned up is another story, but time will tell.
Olympian Lolo Jones complained in the D.R. that knowing Ryan Lochte would make her an immediate target. It's not uncommon for Olympians to know each other, but we see where Lolo is coming from.
Surely anybody would want anyone associated with Lochte out of the house. He's a freaking snake.
Julie Chen then revealed the first twist of the season:
The houseguests would be paired up to become Celebrity Big Brother's first-ever power pairing to compete for the HOH competition.
Ryan was drawn to go first, and he picked Jonathan to work with him. Next, Tamar chose Kandi for her pair. Then we’ve got Joey and Ricky. Lolo and Tom. Dina and Anthony.
That left Kato and Natalie wondering about whether they were about to be sent to the block without getting a chance to fight for safety.
With that, Julie revealed the two left out of the competition were safe from the block during the first nominations ceremony.
The houseguests then worked in their pairs to try and fill up champagne glasses. Ryan and Jonathan had an immediate lead, but by the end, they were neck in neck with Lolo and Tom.
In a tense standoff, Ryan and Jonathan won. Their victory was short-lived, however, when Julie announced the pair would be facing off against each other on the next episode.
The winner would be the first HOH, and the other would find themselves as the first nominee.

Part two of the HOH competition will play out on Tuesday at 8/7c.
The Real Housewives of New Jersey Recap: Margaret Calls Jennifer’s Sister-in-Law a ‘Mail-Order’ Bride
It was the end of the line for Danielle Staub on Wednesday's episode of The Real Housewives of New Jersey.
Margaret Josephs who has long advocated for Danielle to be part of the group decided enough was enough, and that their friendship was at breaking point.
Instead of getting into another altercation, Margaret opted to send a text to end her friendship with the former series regular, effectively cutting her out of the action.
"She's wacko," Margaret complained to her co-stars, before going on to reveal how the text exchange played out, and it was as ugly as you would expect.
"I wish you a happy life. Never speak to me again," Margaret said to Melissa Gorga and show newcomer Jackie Goldschneider as she skimmed her phone for the damning messages.
"I can't believe you're this person, shame on you," Danielle fired back before going on to wish Margaret a happy mother's day.
While that final act sounds like Danielle's way of being nice, it was not. If you watch The Real Housewives of New Jersey online, you know that Margaret hasn't had the best relationship with her kids.
She has been vocal about the breakdown of her previous marriage leading to a decline in communication between her and her ex-husband's children.
It was a typical Danielle move, but at least Margaret was wise enough to let the snake down gently by SMS.
Hell, Danielle was out for blood on last week's installment when the two Joe's got talking about her intentions with her then-husband.
"I didn't answer. We're done. We're never having this fight again," Margaret said to the women after spilling the beans.
"Denial is a real thing, and she f***ing is Cleopatra," she said with a smirk.
As for the other relationship that was on the rocks, that was Teresa Giudice and Jackie Goldschneider.
Giudice was ready for a war of words. That's what happens when you bring her family into your petty squabbles, Jackie.
"I'm definitely not intimidated by Teresa. I just hope it's not another scream-fest," Jackie fretted before a one-on-one meeting with her nemesis.
"What you did to me is not excusable," said Jackie of their previous bust-up, adding:
"I don't get spoken to like that; I'm a grown woman, I have a lot of self-respect ... I was like, 'What the f***?'"
"Listen, you came at me first," Teresa shot back.
But Jackie went on to imply that she and Teresa had something in common. Her father was in jail, and her mother was under house arrest.
"We used to laugh about it," Jackie said, clearly trying to make light of the situation.
"I'm living it right now," Teresa said. "My kids live with it every day. And it really hurts them that their father is not here."
"I did not mean to hurt you, and for that I am sorry," Jackie ultimately said, with Teresa accepting.
"Believe me, I've gotten more Namaste – I used to be a little bit crazier. So that was calm for me when I'm p***ed," Teresa said to close off the argument.
While Margaret was washing her hands of Danielle, she didn't realize she was gearing up for another big fight.
Teresa later told the ladies that Jennifer Aydin's brother and his soon-to-be wife "knew each other for two weeks and now they're getting engaged."
"Ok, that's a little crazy," Margaret said laughing.
Teresa said it's part of the culture and that "they don't sleep with each other and you get to know them when you marry them,'"
"What happens if he was a dud? That's a life of torture," continued Margaret, adding:
"Oh come on, he met her in Turkey? She could be mail order."
Teresa told Jennifer all about it and the latter said to Margaret:
"I can't relate to people who have affairs with married people."
This is the season of the feud, and we're living for it!
RHONJ continues Wednesdays on Bravo.
Colton Underwood is a virgin. Did you know that?
ABC continued to hype this fact about its Season 23 star on the three-hour premiere episode Monday night, which featured Colton kissing two women and sending home seven more.

The Voice crowned another winner on Tuesday night.
It's hard to believe it, but that marks fifteen people who have won the competition. We think it's fair to say that the series doesn't exactly make people stars who set the charts alight, but we just can't stop watching.
The Voice Season 15 has been littered with controversy, and much of that is down to Adam Levine's knack for throwing his acts under the bus and choosing clear favorites.
We wonder if the producers will be as subtle as him when they say his contract is not being renewed for The Voice Season 16.
We kid, mostly.
In any case, it was down to Kennedy Holmes (Team Jennifer), Kirk Jay (Team Blake), Chris Kroeze (Team Blake), Chevel Shepherd (Team Kelly) to vie for the votes to be crowned the winner.
But how did the important performances play out? No, we don't mean the guests the show likes to bring back to pad the episode out for dear life.
We're talking about the above competitors, of course.
Kennedy Holmes (Team Jennifer) and Kelly Rowland - “When Love Takes Over”
Kelly Rowland returned to perform with finalist, Kennedy. Yeah, Kennedy would probably have liked to sing with Beyoncé more, but oh well.
Kennedy turned in another solid performance, but there were some issues with it. For a start, this was supposed to be a duet, and it came across more like a battle.
Kirk Jay (Team Blake) and Rascall Flatts - “Back to Life”
Kirk managed to bounce back after his weak Monday performance. It was his best performance of the season and proved that he is one of the worthiest finalists.
Chris Kroeze (Team Blake) and the Doobie Brothers - “Long Train Runnin'”
Chris continued to be a middle of the road performer. The Doobie Brothers managed to sing better than the finalist, so that's a big problem.
Chevel Shepherd (Team Kelly) and Dan + Shay - “Speechless”
This performance was quite a surprise. Chevel has not been the strongest of singers, but she brought her A game on Tuesday night with a performance that ticked all of the boxes.
In the end, Kennedy was eliminated fourth, Kirk Jay third, and Chris in second place. That meant the winner of The Voice Season 15 is ... Chevel Shepherd.
This was a huge surprise. He's not been consistent all season long, so something tells us this win came from fans of Kelly Clarkson.

William "Willbilly" Hathaway, a cast member on the National Geographic Channel reality show Wicked Tuna, died on Saturday due to injuries he sustained in a car accident.
He was 36 years old.
According to local news outlets, Hathaway was involved in a crash in Salisbury, Maryland after he swerved off a remote countryside road into a ditch.
WBOC16 says that Maryland State Police received a 911 call from a concerned citizen who drove past a Toyota truck on Old Ocean City Road; the station then received numerous similar calls shortly afterwards.
The incident took place around 4 p.m. local time.
Hathaway, meanwhile, supposedly called his wife after the accident occurred and said he was alright.
However, paramedics quickly arrived at the scene and found the reality star "slumped over the center console," not breathing.
The aforementioned news outlet claims he was taken to Peninsula Regional Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead.
Hathaway was allegedly forced off the road and into the ditch when another vehicle cut him off.
His airbags reportedly never deployed.
In response to this tragedy, friends and loved ones have started a Facebook fundraiser to raise money for Hathaway's wife and their newborn daughter, Molly.
"He was an exceptional human being whose passion was the sea. He always brightened the day of anyone he met. His wife and new born baby girl he was most proud of,” a spokesperson for the Ocean CityFishing Community wrote on the page, adding:
“Due to his untimely death we are asking for donations to help them stay on their feet while trying to survive this tragedy."
As of this writing, more than $56,500 of the $250,000 fundraising goal had been reached.
Hathaway was part of the fishing crew on the Ocean City-based Foolish Pleasures vessel, which was featured on "Wicked Tuna: Outer Banks.
The series itself debuted in April of 2012.
As detailed by Wikipedia, it "takes viewers into the unrelenting North Atlantic waters infamously spotlighted by the novel-turned-feature film The Perfect Storm, to follow captains who are relied upon by their families, their shipmates, and by Gloucester itself, to haul in boatloads of the large but elusive bluefin."
Tragically, another Wicked Tuna star lost his life earlier this year.
Nicholas Fudge died in July after a lengthy battle with substance abuse. He was only 28 years old.
We send our condolences to the friends, family members and loved ones of William "Willbilly" Hathaway.
May he rest in peace.
Even before Larissa exposed Colt's cheating this week, this couple was in the running for this season's most dramatic and most controversial couple.
This sneak peek of Sunday's new episode shows exactly why.
Colt responds to Larissa's complaint about his wandering eye by telling her that maybe she's just "bats--t crazy."
On last week's episode of 90 Day Fiance, Larissa got into a huge argument with Colt's cousin over her motivations for marrying him.
Now, the two are going out to dinner with a couple of Colt's friend, but it looks like a tense outing.
Larissa is pissed with Colt.
"Colt doesn't compliment me," Larissa laments to the camera. "A real man shouldn't act like this."
"It's ridiculous," Larissa declares.
What seems to get under her skin isn't just that Colt doesn't compliment her even though she put hours into her appearance.
Even when she brings it up, he instead gets defensive instead of just apologizing and assuring her that she's beautiful.
Colt's friends don't seem quite sure what to make of her, referring to Larissa as a "fiery spark."
Meanwhile, Colt pulls his usual shtick -- which was rubbing people the wrong way long before their current mess spilled over onto social media.
Larissa gets upset, and Colt adopts a painfully patronizing tone in an effort to convince the viewers at home that he's so reasonable, so rational.
In a voice intended to convey that he has the patience of mountains and the intellect of every great philosopher, Colt speaks to the camera.
"I can't believe that Larissa is so angry at me," he says, sounding astonished.
This has happened before, and she is often upset over this particular issue.
Doing his best to fill his voice with weariness, Colt says: "I don't understand."
Larissa spins a theory about why Colt doesn't seem to have the energy to say something nice to her when she gets all dolled up.
"You don't give me compliments," she guesses. "Because you talk to other woman."
These words, given this week's scandal, were oddly prophetic.
"You give her attention," Larissa accuses.
It can be difficult to hear a loved one compliment others but not you.
Colt explains that, somehow, a long day at work leaves him too emotionally drained to give her compliments or think about doing so.
He then suggests that their relationship problems are Larissa's fault.
"Have you ever thought that maybe it's you?" Colt asks confrontationally.
Colt then accuses: "You're bats--t crazy."
That is not a nice way to speak to ... absolutely anyone, let alone one's fiancee.
And there may be something more sinistar at work.
There exists a term: gaslighting, which is making someone believe that they're crazy, usually so that they'll believe only you will love them.
While the word has been overused in recent years, what Colt is doing in this video is giving off majorly bad vibes.
Compliment your fiancee. Compliment your girlfriend. Compliment your friends.
(If this doesn't come naturally to you, pick one thing that was a choice -- from hairstyle to leggings to shoes, etc, to say something nice about every day)
Earlier episodes made Larissa seem like she was overreacting to Colt complimenting strange women.
With the revelation that he's e cheater who allegedly DMs women about Larissa being nuts for sympathy ... maybe Larissa was the only one saying things clearly.
Just because someone gets emotional and flustered doesn't mean that they're wrong about everything.
Wednesday's episode of The Real Housewives of New Jersey was all about Danielle Staub's bachelorette party, and while there were no tables being flipped, there was a lot of drama.
Now, you may be wondering why Danielle is having a bachelorette party, especially when we know that her marriage has already fizzled out.
But thanks to the power of reality TV, we're getting to watch this trainwreck play out, and let's just say we're loving every minute of it.
Danielle wanted the best bachelorette party ever and even expected the likes of Margaret Josephs, Teresa Giudice, and Melissa Gorga to plan the whole bash out.
You may be scratching your head wondering why Margaret would take anything do with the event because Danielle has been treating her like something you would scrape off your shoe, but here we are.
"It needs to be perfect," Danielle started with her list of diva-like demands.
"I want only dairy- and gluten-free options. And the environment needs to be an expensive environment, but I also want really nice gifts."
We're surprised she didn't ask for a horse and carriage. Then again, the producers were probably scared Teresa got mad and flipped the carriage with Danielle in it.
We kid, mostly.
Margaret then made a rookie mistake by reminding Danielle of that time she had her registry at Hermes and Versace.
Over to you, Danielle!
"It's just time to kick it into high f--king gear, that's all. You guys need to be texting me in the morning saying, 'Countdown!' That wouldn't suck. It's about being here for me."
Melissa even likened herself, Teresa and Margaret to "bridesmaids/servants" and even that wasn't enough to dial Danielle's demands.
What she did next was raise holy hell by praising Melissa and Teresa for always being there when she needed them.
"My expectations were for you to check in and make sure that I'm doing okay," Danielle said, clearly dragging Magaret right through the mud. "I'm getting married."
"It was a really lonely day when I had my fitting and my alterations," Danielle said, but Margaret was having absolutely none of it.
"We went to get your dress with you!" she barked back.
"Oh, no, I got a different gown altogether," Danielle complained as she geared up for a shouting match.
"WHY NOT CALL ME? WHY NOT BREAK THE SILENCE AND CALL THE BRIDE?"
"I DIDN'T EVEN KNOW YOU WENT FOR YOUR F--KING ALTERATIONS!" Margaret shouted back at her former friend.
"I want people to pay attention to me!" Danielle complained. "When do I get to feel like the bride, instead of feeling like I'm attacked and gnawed at like a dog with a f--king bone?!"
Oh yeah, Danielle wants the whole show to be about her. Did she forget that she's only billed as a friend of the housewives?
"The way you just spoke to me is disgusting," said Margaret as she got ready for round forty-six.
But Danielle was not ready to back down.
"So I shouldn't register as a bride?"
That's when Margaret flipped the hell out, but thankfully no tables were harmed.
"NO, YOU SHOULDN'T! YOU KNOW WHAT YOU SHOULD F--KING DO? YOU SHOULD SAY, 'NO GIFTS. IN LIEU OF GIFTS, DONATE TO CHARITY.' BECAUSE YOU HAVE A F--KING HOUSE FULL OF SHIT AND IT'S YOUR SECOND WEDDING. YOU'RE A F--KING BRIDEZILLA, AND YOU'RE BEING AN ASSHOLE."
That was enough to stop Danielle's power trip, and she apologized to Margaret. Seriously though, what the eff is Danielle all about?
The party went relatively well, but Melissa worried that her friend was gearing up for marriage for all the wrong reasons.
"How are you feeling about everything?" she said to Danielle.
"I'm a little nervous because it's not even here in Jersey," Danielle responded. "We're going someplace. What if my gowns don't make it? What if people don't make it?"
Danielle got the wrong end of the stick, and Melissa confirmed what she meant.
"Just like any other relationship, there's peaks and valleys," Danielle replied. "And when you come together at our age, there's gonna be a lot of peaks and valleys."
Yeah, it certainly seems like there was trouble before the couple even got married.

Adam Levine found himself in the hot seat on Monday night.
The longtime coach on The Voice felt the ire of the internet last week when he urged viewers to vote to save Reagan Strange, despite her not being well enough to perform in the sing-off.
In the process, he threw his other act, DeAndre Nico, under the bus, and everyone seemed mad at him.
Last week “was a strange week, but it’s over now,” Adam said to Reagan. “DeAndre’s my boy. I love him. We talked. It’s all good.”
Viewers later got to witness a video call between DeAndre and Reagan later in the night; the former had nothing but praise for his 14-year-old former teammate.
“Do your best, man,” DeAndre said, “and stay positive.”
It's classy for DeAndre to throw some support Reagan's way, especially when you consider the backlash to this whole thing that could have been avoided.
If you thought Adam was ready to say anything else about it, you were wrong. Carson Daly seemingly decided against asking him much about the performers.
As for Reagan Strange's big performance? It was meh.
The youngster went with Calum Scott's "You Are the Reason," and while the youngster has proven to have a solid voice, this was not the best song for her.
It was just all over the place, and her nerves were also to blame. By this stage of the game, you should be acclimated with performing live.
It makes sense that viewers wanted Reagan gone for that reason, but it remains to be seen whether Tuesday will be her big goodbye.
The best performance of the night was Kennedy Holmes and her rendition of "This Is Me."
She pulled out all the stops to ensure this Greatest Showman song was performed perfectly. She even put her own spin on it, to boot.
Whether viewers will vote for her is another story because, well, the viewer vote is never a sign of quality.
As for the worst performance of the night?
That honor goes to Sarah Grace who went with "Sign of the Times" by Harry Styles.
There wasn't anything remotely likable about this number. From shaky vocals to awkward moves, there was something off about the rendition from the get-go.
The true test will be whether she winds up in the bottom three, which could really go either way.
Who did you like best on the night?
Did Adam Levine make a mistake?

The Voice continues Tuesday at 8/7c.
On this week's new episode of 90 Day Fiance, Eric chose someone he's known for approximately 90 days over someone he has known literally his entire life:
How did it even arrive at this point?
Leida said she was prepared to call it quits with Eric and head back to Indonesia because he refused to buy her new furniture.
That was the reason the pair started to argue at least.
Leida explained how was overly stressed about child support and also about Eric's daughter, Tasha, still living in the house with them. She claimed to be truly fed up and nearly finished with it all.
“I feel like I’m forcing myself to get married with you because I don’t want to leave this country cause I have a lot of opportunity to pursue my medical career here,” she told Eric.
After some cajoling, however, Leida accepted the child support.
However, after she arrived home and saw Tasha’s dirty room, she lost it once again.
“If you’re going to threaten to leave him, get the f-ck out of my country,” Tasha screamed at Leida, sick and tired of her threats.
But this was not the route Eric chose to go; nope, Leida actually got him to kick Tasha out, making Tasha feel like her father was selecting Leida over his children.
Because that's exactly what he was doing.
“I don’t know where me and my dad stand anymore,” Tasha cried. “I don’t want to just not see my dad anymore, but if this is how it’s going to be, then I guess it’s how it’s going to be.”
And also crazy sad?
Speaking of crazy, let's turn to Colt and Larissa, shall we?
The couple is MARRIED, in case you had not heard, but tension still exists between Colt's family and his now-wife.
In an attempt to do away with it, Colt wanted to host a barbecue in the hopes that Larissa, his mom, Debbie, and his cousin John could try to develop some kind of relationship.
However, the plan backfired when Larissa started talking about them moving out and leaving Debbie behind, which prompted a great deal of screaming and yelling.
You know, par for the Colt and Larissa course.
“Nobody will make me believe that just because she’s Colt’s mother she’s allowed to make my life a hell,” Larissa said to John, addng:
“I love him and I want to respect his mother, but I won’t put my head down and let someone control me.”
Sick of pretending he was in support of the marriage, John went right ahead and took aim at Larissa in response.
“You should feel like a damn queen with a rock like that but, no, you take advantage,” John said. “That bitch is here for his money. Period. … This is fake. It’s bullsh-t. That’s not true love.”
From there, Larissa disinvited John to her wedding and Colt tried to calm his fiancee down.
To no avail whatsoever.
“Take your f-cking ring,” Larissa yelled. “Marry the woman your mother like. OK, take the ring and f-ck you."
Were things any calmer for Ashley and Jay?
These two were feeling uneasy after they received a series of racist and violent threats against them and their wedding.
In response, they installed security cameras in their house, yet their friends and family member were dropping out of attending the nuptials because they felt unsafe.
The stars figured they had no choice but to elope in Las Vegas as a result.
“The racist comments on our website really rattled us,” Ashley said. “Sometimes I think that a scary situation makes you get closer in your relationship.”
Finally, we conclude with Asuelu and Kalani.
Their relationship was on the thin ice after they got into a heated exchange last week in front of Kalani’s sister.
Kalani felt as if she didn’t want to marry Asuelu anymore, while Asuelu simply grew quiet and shut down any time she brought this up.
On Sunday night, however, they tried to talk about their major issues.
“You’re not the person that I knew in Samoa,” Kalani said. “You don’t really talk to me. You don’t really try to fix problems.”
Asuelu responded with tears, saying he felt a lack physical affection from Kalani.
“He really believes that I don’t love him if I don’t want to cuddle him,” Kalani said, seemingly in shock that Asuelu could feel this way.
Thankfully, though, this discussed seemed to clear up some problems in their relationship and Kalani even admitted she was excited to plan their wedding.
Well, they're going there!
The Real Housewives of New Jersey Season 9 Episode 5 did not lack for drama.
The reason? Teresa Giudice and Melissa Gorga are more at odds than ever, and it's making for a healthy dose of drama on a weekly basis.
The latest twist in the tale occurred when Teresa dragged her brother, Joe Gorga, for not spending time with their father, Giacinto.
"Get the f*** outta here," Joe yelled as he stormed out of Teresa's home, and shouting:
"Shove it up your f***ing ass! You've always gotta bitch."
"I've gotta go back to work. Is that OK with you, or am I a scumbag for working?" Joe said as he exited the scene.
If you watch The Real Housewives of New Jersey online, you know that Joe has said that his work has kept him super busy, thinking that makes up for the lack of time he spends with his father.
Teresa has long blamed sister-in-law Melissa for the way Joe acted, and that's clearly why their feud is starting to go into overdrive again.
It all came to a head at a children's party that Jennifer Aydin hosted for everyone.
Teresa complained that Melissa was the one who was the problem and that she was "getting him all amped up," or something.
Jackie then decided enough was enough and defended Melissa.
"She's entitled to talk to her husband in the way that she feels comfortable," the new addition to the cast said.
Jackie continued to defend Melissa, adding:
"I give you credit because I would've gotten up and stormed away from the f***ing table."
Jackie even ruffled Jennifer's feathers because the latter seemed to think you could control your man.
"The idea that you can control your husband is ridiculous. If you can control him then that means you have a husband without a backbone," Jackie seethed.
The drama went into overdrive when Teresa told Jackie to "mind your own business" before yelling that she was to stop messing with her family.
That's when Jackie went for the jugular and uttered the following words:
"Do you really feel like your husband would be in jail right now if you could control what he did?"
Everyone was blindsided, and Teresa managed to respond without actually throwing a table.
"Why are you bringing up my husband and where he is?" Teresa calmly quizzed, but she saved her rage for a confessional.
"How dare she throw it in my face that my husband's away. Who the f*** does this bitch think she is?" Teresa shrieked, adding:
"Jackie's lucky that Milania just walked in because I'm not gonna fight in front of my daughter. This isn't f***ing over."
As for Jackie, she took to a confessional to drag Teresa some more.
"I think Teresa is used to bulldozing Melissa with her BFF Dolores, but I won't stand for that. If you're a bitch, I'll call you out on it. And if you don't like it, that's your problem, not mine."
Melissa was thankful for Jackie but knew it would only spell further drama.
"I appreciate Jackie backing me up. But I know Teresa - when you say something that stings her she does not forget. I do not think this is going to be good for the two of them."
Elsewhere, Melissa asked both of her sisters Lysa and Kim whether they had a secret half-sister.
Oh yes, the show is killing it this season.
Apparently, Melissa attended a psychic who said that her father had a message for her:
She had three sisters!
"I mean we heard things about him being unfaithful, but a child? Never!" said Lysa.
"Throughout my childhood, my dad would leave the house sometimes and come back a couple of days later," Teresa added in a confessional.
"Is it a possibility that he was with another woman, or creating another child? Yeah, there's definitely a possibility of that."
"I have watched my mom cry for years over my father. He would always just apologize for not coming home."
Okay then. This might be the most intriguing storyline on the show in quite some time.

Jael Strauss, the America's Next Top Model contestant who revealed just two months ago that she had breast cancer, died Tuesday morning around 11 a.m.
She was under hospice care at the time.
And she was 34 years old.
Insiders close to Strauss tell TMZ that her condition took a turn for the worse on Monday night, following several days during which Strauss was unconscious.
Her family has been allowing visitors to see Jael, however, up until the final few hours of her life.
It was clear at that point that the Season 8 hopeful did not have much time remaining.
Strauss chose to stop chemotherapy around Halloween and went into hospice on Thanksgiving, writing on Facebook:
"First night in hospice. So many things I never knew about life. Or death. So many things."
It was only a month or so before this transition that Strauss wrote a lengthy and emotional message to fans about her Stage IV breast cancer.
Likely aware at the time that the diagnosis was fatal, she said: "It has aggressively spread throughout my body and is incurable."
"With treatment it may prolong my life longer than the 'few months' doctors said I could make it. I don't want to die."
"I need another one of those miracles that I got back in 2013."
With this statement, Strauss was referring to a past battling the devastating affects of crystal meth addiction.
This was something difficult and personal, and which she addressed publicly in an appearance on Dr. Phil in 2012.
In August, just two months before the breast cancer diagnosis, Strauss celebrated five years of sobriety.
This is what she wrote on Instagram in tribute to herself, her situation and all those who helped her along the way:
I know a few things to be true:
Miracles are real, Recovery is possible for everyone no matter how far gone you think you are, We are never too broken to be put back together.
Service work feels better than the greatest high.
Sobriety makes you weirder not normal and I'd be dead if it weren't for all the love and forgiveness I've been showered with by my friends and family.
A GoFundMe was opened for Strauss about a month ago that has thus far raised more than $18,000 to fund her treatment.
SAid Jael's family and friends to TMZ in a statement:
"The one blessing was that we were able to show her how loved she was before she passed. She brought so much light to people."
As mentioned above, Strauss competed on the eighth season of America’s Next Top Model in 2007 and finished sixth in the competition.
May Jael Strauss rest in peace.
Teen Mom OG focused less on the (former) Teen Moms this week and more on their crop of children.
Bristol Palin had a talk with her son about Dakota Meyer... Amber helped her daughter achieve a major female milestone... and Catelynn and Tyler revealed their impending child's name.
It's an unusual one, we can say that much.
Let's begin our recap with this revelation and then go from there, shall we?
Scroll down now, Teen Mom OG fans!
1. Catelynn and Tyler are Expecting!
2. But Was It Welcome?
3. Where Were They at This Week?
4. There She Is!
5. Get to the Name, Please!
6. Guess What, Dad?!?
Lynnea Moorer may have won the Comeback Stage of The Voice Season 13, but she's been struggling to resonate with both the viewers at home and with the coaches.
The Comeback Stage was introduced as a means to coach struggling artists who did not achieve a chair turn during the Blind Auditions. In all honesty, it's rather ridiculous.
In any case, Lynnea Moorer has been in the bottom the last two weeks, and better performers have been sent home as a result of this. Did her luck run out during Tuesday's results show?
As is always the case nowadays, the sixty-minute installment was stuffed with performances that nobody cared about. Viewers care about who gets sent home during the results episode, and nothing more.
Sent to Safety
Kennedy Holmes (Team Jennifer)
Kymberli Joye (Team Kelly)
Reagan Strange (Team Adam)
Chris Kroeze (Team Blake)
Kirk Jay (Team Blake)
MaKenzie Thomas (Team Jennifer)
Sarah Grace (Team Kelly)
Dave Fenley (Team Blake) Chevel Shepherd (Team Kelly)
That left Lynnea to duke it out with DeAndre Nico. Surely this would spell the end of Lynnea's time in the competition. Three weeks at the bottom is a big no-no.
Lynnea Moorer (Team Kelly) - “Tattooed Heart”
Ariana Grande has a wide vocal range, but Lynnea does not. The comeback kid's rendition of this hit song started off pretty well, but it quickly fell apart.
There's a lack of consistency with Lynnea's vocals. it probably explains why she didn't get the coveted chair turn during the Blinds. The producers wanted to shake things up.
Instead, they've allowed a subpar performer to make it further into the process than she should have.
DeAndre Nico (Team Adam) - “Take Me to the King”
The biggest surprise here was that DeAndre found himself in the bottom two with Lynnea. He's actually one of the better performers. Even though he wasn't as good as usual on Monday, he was still a cut above most of the others.
In the end, this was a return to form for him, and there was no way he would lose out.
In the most predictable result ever, DeAndre was saved, while Lynnea lost her place in the competition.
