While Khloe is considering never dating again, her mom is all about her own love life ... possibly to excess.
Much to the public embarrassment of her daughters, Kris Jenner cannot stop thinking and talking about sex.
You know when you were in high school and a friend kept trying to draw attention to their hickey so that you'd ask about it?
Well, that is exactly Kris Jenner's energy in this Keeping Up With The Kardashians sneak peek clip.
"Do I have lipstick all over my face?” she asks Kendall and Khloe as she takes a seat with them at the table.
“We were just having a little make out session in the car,” Kris casually informs her tallest daughters.
Kris also had to ask if her top was on right, and then briefly tested the water, asking: “Is that too much?"
"It's just one of those days," she says mysteriously.
In other words, she's a very horny momager.
Khloe asks why Corey is not joining them, but it sounds like he is a little worn out.
"Corey had to go home and sleep," Kris brags, "because we were up all night."
She adds: “You know how that goes."
"I love our dynamic with our mom and I would not change it for the world," Khloe affirms to the confessional camera.
"But does my mom over share?" she asks rhetorically.
"I mean, she’s talking about her lipstick being smeared, her mojo … just some things -- zip it," Khloe expresses.
Their food is then served.
At this point, Kris is brought a tiramisu, a coffee-flavored Italian dessert, on the house.
"I heard it was the dessert of lovers," Kris says to the man bringing it, to everyone's discomfort.
Honestly? Kendall's bulging eyes are deeply relatable at this point.
Most of us have given our moms this look -- to no avail -- at least once.
Both daughters are then forced to sit and watch Kris take bites of the dessert and then moan.
Clearly enjoying tormenting Khloe and Kendall, Kris then says: "I could rub this all over my body."
"Ew," Khloe very understandably remarks.
Like the rest of us, she asks: "Why would you want to?"
Instead of answering, Kris just nods suggestively and says "trust me."
In the confessional, she explains her state of mind. Her horny, horny state of mind.
"Women go through stages in life," Kris points out.
She continues: "and I’m going through one of those stages."
Kris details that she's in a place "where I cannot get enough of my boyfriend."
“And it’s a little unfair that I’m dating and having the time of my life," she laments, "when Khloe’s not."
Back in the restaurant, Kris advises Khloe: "You just got to get it in when you can."
There is then an acknowledgment that Khloe and Kris “couldn’t be more opposite right now" in this regard.
"You should taste this, guys," Kris urges her daughters, instantly ruining it by taunting: "This is like a sex dessert."
Kris then repeats the word "sex" loudly until she accidentally disturbs the restaurant. Oh, Kris.
Khloe's horror is both palpable and relatable, as is her inability to hush her mother before it is too late.
Kris does at least apologize.
Laughing, she confesses: "I cannot stop thinking about sex."
We already covered the emotional premiere of Mama June: Family Crisis, from Alana's tearful despair to Lauryn's long-term concerns.
A new sneak peek glimpse at the next episode shows the search for June unfold, but some fans are calling for the show to end ... for being fake.
It's not that anyone thinks that June Shannon hasn't spent the past year in a dangerous downward spiral of self-destructive behaviors.
Lauryn is clearly sad about it, and probably a little overwhelmed by having to take in her younger sister.
Alana is clearly devastated by the way that her mom abandoned her for Geno.
Doe Doe is really determined to save her sister from Geno and from herself.
No, the issue that fans are bringing up on social media is that elements of the episode looked a little ... not necessarily rehearsed.
There were times when the family seemed downright bored with what they were talking about.
Why? Because they had obviously had all of these conversations multiple times before.
They also know that this conflict is the key to continuing to get money from the show while the titular star, June herself, remains AWOL.
That brings us to this sneak peek clip of the episode that will air on Friday, April 3.
In this video, which have included for you to watch, June's sister Doe Doe deals with her frustrations after her last lead went nowhere.
Remember how the season premiere showed Doe Doe search at a casino where Shannon had been spotted?
That didn't pan out, so Doe Doe sits down with Michael "Big Mike" Mclarty to discuss the next step.
Doe Doe and Big Mike are seated at the table.
Mike, who has a full-on swastika tattoo on his arm, is wearing long sleeves to cover it, because apparently WEtv is fine with that.
The waitress does a very convincing job of acting like she has just now recognized Doe Doe from television.
In real life, of course, we know that she would have noticed cameras, producers, and boom mike operators.
Notably, the waitress' face appears, which means that she must have signed a release to that effect.
Which brings us to the next point -- because after she returns with their drinks, she offers her help.
Doe Doe talks about getting stonewalled at the casino, but the waitress says that she has a friend who works there.
She offers to text the friend while Doe Doe and Big Mike enjoy their meal.
Even if we pretend that we don't know what sort of person Big Mike is, there are real moral issues that viewers are grappling with regarding the show.
Alana is only fourteen years old.
Sure, she can handle an interview or two.
But covering an entire season of her reactions to her mother's downward -- and potentially lethal -- spiral is really pushing the bounds of decency.
Obviously, so did WEtv's decision to employ June in the first place.
Remember, she was fired from TLC and dozens of episodes were buried after she was caught in bed with the man who had molested her daughter, Anna.
Anna had been only 8 years old at the time. The man had gone to prison for it.
And June had then decided to bring this man into her life -- and around Alana.
Watching this clip, there is clearly going to be a lot of entertainment this season, even if a lot of conversations are clearly staged.
Fakery won't get the show canceled -- only ratings, a pullout of advertisers, or a widespread viewer backlash are likely to do that.
But it's a little disturbing to see a family seemingly so numb to strutting out a teen girl to air her trauma.
Doe Doe is an adult, though. If she wants to spice up her search for June with twists and turns, more power to her.
Christine Brown stepped into the spotlight on Sister Wives this week.
... Christine made it especially clear on Sunday night:
She's also rather miserable these days.
“It’s just so hard. This conversation sucks. It just completely sucks," the irritated spouse said in a confessional while talking to daughter Aspyn about the family's living arrangements on the latest episode of this TLC hit.
Does Christine wish she and Kody and company had remained in Las Vegas?
She wouldn't go that far.
“It wasn’t a mistake to move to Flagstaff," Christine continued.
"Even though it’s been a hit, even though it’s not what we wanted, even though it’s been a year and we’re not where we wanted. It wasn’t a mistake. Flagstaff is still where we’re supposed to be.
"It still feels right.”
Despite living in Arizona for so long, the Sister Wives are still unsettled.
As has been well-documented on the new season, Kody, Meri, Janelle, Christine and Robyn have been clashing over the family patriarch wanting everyone to live in one giant home.
None of the women like this idea.
On the episodes airing each Sunday night, they're residing in thir rental homes and arguing constantly with Kody over where they're gonna end up.
In this latest case, it all became too much for Christine, who broke down in tears while opening up to Aspyn during a visit to Utah.
"It’s been so hard. I can’t tell you how hard it’s been,” the 47-year old told her child, adding;
“I wanna build, I wanna get out there. I’m tired of wasting money everywhere. I just want to build and get out there, all together, and not move again.
"I’m done. I want to stay there forever and ever and ever."
Where did Janelle and Meri come down on the topic? How did they feel this week about the prospect of living on the Coyote Pass property?
“Right now, I feel like it’s never gonna happen,” Janelle said. “It’s this thing we talk about and it’s like I don’t know.”
Meri wasn't any more optimistic.
"I don’t see it happening in the very near future," she said.
Kody, however, remained undeterred, much to the annoyance of basically everyone around him.
"I think we’re on a two-year plan for moving on,” the 51-year-old father of over a dozen kids said about his polygamous palace fantasy, along with his dreams of simply building on the land he purchased so long ago.
Christine concluded by looking on the bright side ... as much as she could.
“It’s hard to see it as a reality sometimes. It is,” she acknowledged. “So I have to stay as positive as I can that we’re going to get out there."
Sister Wives airs at 10/9c on Sunday nights on TLC.
She considers herself to be a TV personality, because she was on the Third Season of the very popular Love Island dating show, and I guess is diving into acting world because she is in LA promoting some movie called Deported, co-starring Rebel Wilson.
I figure she’s officially on the map with her million followers, so as an attempt to keep the celebrity blog concept alive, here she is in some of her best recent IG pics looking hot! The future is bright for this reality star.

On The Real Housewives of Atlanta, we see Kenya express her unhappiness and Marc's explosive tantrum ... just one day before they split.
On The Real Housewives of Atlanta, Kenya Moore's detestable, toxic husband's on-camera behavior was only getting worse, not better.
With Kenya's help, Marc held a benefit in honor of the Black Man Lab, a charity that helps to inspire young black men with role models for success.
"I hate it. I hate it," Marc was caught complaining on a hot mic. "Everybody knows that."
He was referring to Kenya's reality stardom, and also commented: “Save me from the drama."
We can understand Marc Daly's gripe. Constant cameras must make it hard to be a controlling, emotionally abusive prick to your wife.
"It’s invasive,” Marc whined to Kenya about the camera presence at the benefit.
Eventually, he went full drama queen, flipping out and yelling at a producer to stop filming the event.
"Tell them that’s it. They can’t film forever. Tell them they got to wrap. …" Marc demanded.
"I’m giving you five minutes and then I’m gonna take care of it," Marc declared.
Appearing to threaten the production crew, Marc announced: "If I come back down here it’s going to be ugly."
"I don’t give an F," he snarled. "End it!"
"They’re never gonna see me again after the event," Marc declared. Hey, that's good news!
Even Kenya's sworn enemy, NeNe Leakes, observed that Kenya's happily ever after looks more like an upsetting Lifetime movie.
"Every time I’ve seen Mark and Kenya together, I’ve never seen them lovey-dovey,” NeNe remarked.
“It’s almost like, he’s standing over here and she’s standing over here," she observed. "It’s almost like it’s an agreement."
If NeNe Leakes thinks that your marriage seems tense, loveless, and miserable, you know that you're in trouble.
Kenya noted to the camera that she wasn't just there as Marc's wife, but had actually helped him to set this up.
We guess that she told viewers because they'd never have known it from Marc.
"I am well-connected in Atlanta and I have put everything in place to help Marc pull off this event. …" Kenya shared.
Marc's behavior often hurts Kenya's feelings. This time, it didn't appear to be from malice, but just thoughtlessness.
"This is the time to tell the entire world how much you value your spouse," Kenya opined.
"And it’s crickets,” she characterized.
“I love standing behind Marc as Mrs. Daly," Kenya emphasized, "but I always want to be appreciated at Mrs. Daly and as a partner."
That is not an unreasonable request. Spouses are supposed to love, support, and even like each other.
Kenya didn't speak only to the camera. She also shared her misery with Cynthia Bailey.
"All of the couples seem to be happy. Just enjoying each other so much," she observed. "I’m just really disappointed."
“I miss the fact that that’s where we used to be," Kenya claimed.
"It was caring and love and everything that anyone could ever hope for looking for a mate," she characterized.
"Looking at where we are now," Kenya reflected, "it’s hurtful to see that we’re not where we used to be."
"Marc is the type where either it’s an all-out, blow-out fight or either he’s being withdrawn," she shared.
Neither of those sound like good or even tolerable qualities in a partner.
"I feel like right now, it’s just a matter of avoidance,” Kenya explained.
She continued: “It’s almost like I avoid anything that might make him upset because I don’t want to fight."
That sounds toxic. That sounds like a description of an emotionally abusive relationship.
"I still don’t know all of Marc’s triggers,” Kenya added. “You feel like you’re crazy. Why is he upset? That is what’s scary."
Alarmingly, she continued: "Because you are in a union with someone that’s suppose to be forever, and you doesn’t know what this person is."
"It’s difficult for him to admit that he does anything wrong,” Kenya shared.
“The nearly three years that we’ve been together," she recalled, "I can remember this man apologizing to me one time."
Did anyone else cup their hands together like a megaphone and yell "LEAVE HIM" at their screens?
We know that we weren't the only ones.
Kenya again spoke to the camera.
"Marc and I are in desperate need to have some intimacy,” she revealed, as if that would solve anything.
“I’m not just always talking about sex," Kenya clarified.
"You know when your husband is acting differently. You notice when he changes his cologne," she reasoned.
"You know when your husband changes his habits, the way he speaks to you," Kenya continued.
She opined: "All women have the innate sense of what is going on in their relationship."
When asked if these changes in Marc scared her, Kenya replied: "yeah."
"There are a lot of things that we’re going through that I did not anticipate," Kenya admitted.
"If you can’t fix the things that are wrong, it’s just going to create this crack,” Kenya said of relationships.
“I don’t want to be single," she expressed, "but I want to have my fairytale that I had."
"I feel like, you know, I definitely want to make it work," Kenya expressed. "But I’m not sure [if he wants to]."
The very next day, Kenya and Marc announced their long-overdue separation.
It was Fantasy Suite week on The Bachelor this week.

Kody Brown said the quiet part out loud on Sister Wives this week.
On every episode of this TLC series in 2020, the horny patriarch has come across like a selfish jerk.
Heck, Kody made one of his spouses cry last week by continuing to push the idea of everyone living under one roof in Arizona, despite clear and understandable objections to the proposal.
But the insensitive realiity star plummeted to a new low on Sunday night.
Kody confessed that he wants all his Sister Wives to be miserable.
“When I was younger, it used to be a lot of pleasure to me when I’d see my wives goofing off and playing and having fun together. I’m jaded, I guess,” the 51-year old explained.
He then continued as follows, admitting that even he — the most famous polygamist on television — doesn’t like being married to multiple women.
“I just don’t see plural marriage in the same light that I used to.
“I’m struggling with plural marriage and I’m struggling with my wives and I’m struggling with their conflict.
“We’re at a stage in our lives now where were far apart and we’re struggling with getting along.”
To be clear, all that’s really happening here is that Kody has an idea (to build a large home in which everyone can reside) and neither Robyn nor Meri nor Christine nor Janelle is on board.
That’s pretty much it.
So all it takes is a little bit of dissension in the ranks and Kody can’t handle.
His true colors just come pouring out.
While Kody said all this on the episode, he was watching the four women making snow angels together and saying that he’s “cynical.”
He ought to be thrilled to see the Sister Wives getting along so well, right?
Especially since together they share 18 children and the entire point of plural marriage is to create one giant happy famiily…
That’s how someone with a heart would feel at least, you know?
“We did an entire discussion about one home and I think there’s a tendency, especially with my presentation of this one house idea, where there’s sort of a loyalty bond that they get with each there,” Kody tried to explain.
Brown then stuck his foot into his mouth into deeper, coming right out and admiitting he can’t handle when the spouses don’t just acquiesce to his every demand:
“It’s me or them. [For example,] ‘Well, my sister wife doesn’t like this one house idea, so I’m gonna side with her instead of my husband.’”
Throughout Season 9, Meri has also been very open about the struggles of having a plural family, even revealing that she nearly was kicked out of her rental home because of her romantic lifestyle.
Robyn, meanwhile, recently supported Christine when she spoke out against Kody, proving that he’s not paranoid at least.
The Sister Wives really do seem to be bonding over their issues with their husband these days.
How dare they think on their own, right?!?
They say you can’t go home again.
And yet, on The Bachelor this week, Peter Weber went home again… and again… and again… and again.
How did Weber’s hometown date episode go? Who did he send packing before it was all said and done? And how did an ex-girlfriend play an unexpected role?!?
We begin this recap with a trip to Hannah Ann’s native Knoxville, Tennessee.
Before their date had even begun, this member of the final four made a point to warn Peter about her father, Rick, describing him as an old-school, protective dad who works in the lumber industry.
It was important that she prove to her parent “that this California guy is tough,” yet getting Rick’s approval was far easier said than done.
What a shock, right? It’s typically a breeze for any Bachelor to win over the father of his potential wife.
After spending the day together, Hannah Ann and her handsome pilot headed to her home to meet her family — and it was apparent from the outset that Rick was skeptical about the whole process.
“The biggest question on my mind is how Peter feels about Hannah,” he said.
“I mean, can you honestly sit here and tell me tonight that it’s not just a flash in the pan? Because right now, that’s the way I look at it.”
“What I can tell you is there is something real here,” Peter said in defense of his feelings for Hannah Ann, adding:
“I’m actually hoping to tell her this tonight, that I am falling in love with her and I don’t want her to have any doubt about that.”
Rick was all like, dude, do NOT say that big-time word to my child unless you mean it… which, naturally, prompted Peter to go ahead and say it.
“I know how I’m feeling about you, and I can honestly say that I am falling in love with you,” he told Hannah Ann. “Just being here with you tonight with your family, it feels so right. And it makes me so happy.”
“I am in love with you,” Hannah Ann replied. “I’m devoted and I’m committed and I’m in it.”
From there, Peter reunited with Kelsey in Des Moines, Iowa.
They also spent the day — stomping grapes to create their own blend of wine — and Kelsey even dropped the L-word herself for the first time.
While Peter seemed genuinely happy, he didn’t reciprocate, merely telling her that his heart was “definitely falling.”
That evening, he met Kelsey’s mom Beth, stepdad Mike and a few other family members.
During a one-on-one conversation with Beth, Peter said he and Kelsey “connected on a such a deep and emotional level” early on.
“As a mom of three having gone through a divorce, I am concerned,” the protective parent responded. “Nobody wants to have their child’s heartbroken. So, don’t break my girl’s heart.”
Seems like a fair requst, right?
That was really all there was to the visit with Kesley, as Peter next went to Auburn, Alabama to play some basketball with Madison… whose dad coaches this fun sport.
That night, he went to her house for dinner to meet the while family, where the topic of intimacy came up during a private discussion between Madison and her mom, Tonya.
“I haven’t fully talked to him yet about how I view intimacy, and how I feel that is something that I have saved for marriage,” Madison confessed. “I don’t know how he’s going to respond to that.”
Cut to yet another emotional chat with yet another emotional father, who said his daughter is “pure” and who feared Peter would corrupt or hurt her, and Peter replying as follows:
“I just can’t give you an answer right now [about who I’m going to pick], and I’m sorry about that.”
This trip didn’t conclude with any huge feelings shared between the occasional couple.
“I think I was hoping to be there,” Madison said. “I was hoping to tell Peter that I’m in love with him, but I’m still trying to figure out if our spirits and our souls are compatible and I think a lot is weighing on that.”
Finally, Peter flew to Virginia Beach, Virginia, for his hometown date with Victoria Fuller.
They spent the day exploring the beach and boardwalk before she surprised him with a Hunter Hayes concert, where a group of fans formed to watch the performance unfold.
(No, you guys, Victoria did not also date Hayes.)
And then, in a total shocker that Peter couldn’t possibly have known was coming and was definitely not scripted by producers… an ex-girlfriend showed up!
Her face was hilariously blurred on air, but she’s since been identified as Merissa Pence.
“Just be careful,” she warned Peter about Victoria, explaining:
“I’m from here, and I just know what a good guy you are, and I would hate for who you are to be affected by somebody else. So that’s really all I’ll say.
“I know that you’re a great guy and I don’t think that you deserve what you’re on a date with right now.”
Marissa then claimed that she actually knew Victoria sort of well. What a coincidence that we totally believe is true!
“I actually used to be friends with her and things happened, probably a few months ago,” she continued.
“We’re just not friends anymore. I’ve tried to mend the relationship, just because we have mutual friends … but I just feel like I want to say this to you, because I know who you are and it’s a good person and I don’t think that you deserve that.
“There has been many relationships broken up because of her, and I don’t think it’s a good relationship for you to be in.”
Peter was taken aback by this bombshell and brought it up later with Fuller.
“You know how on our first date at that concert, you had an ex there? Today I had an ex there, too. Her name is Merissa,” he began.
“We just kind of chatted for a little bit, and then she just brought some stuff to my attention that she thought I should know.
She told me that you’ve caused a lot of other relationships to end — I don’t know what she could be referring to, but those are her words.”
Victoria responded in anger, storming off in tears because, in her view, Peter had just immedately taken the side of an ex over her.
“I adore you,” she told him later, choking back sobs.
“I literally wanted to tell you tonight that I was falling in love with you. And how am I supposed to do that? … I had such high hopes for you to meet my family and I’m just so disappointed.”
The two then said an emotional goodbye… only for Victoria to show up the next morning at Peter’s hotel.
“For some reason, I just can’t walk away from you,” she said. “You can make this decision. If you don’t want to continue with me, then I understand. But I can’t let you leave without letting you know that I’m falling in love with you.”
Yup, there it is, folks. Again.
Everyone then met back up in Los Angeles for a rose ceremony, despite Peter never meeting Victoria’s family.
Peter gave the first flower to Hannah Ann and the second to Madison, saving the final rose for Victoria — and eliminating Kelsey in the process.
“I’m so sorry, and I know you probably didn’t see that coming at all,” he said as he walked her out.
“Believe me, when you told me that you loved me, that meant the world to me. But I just — I wasn’t there.”
Will he go there next week in the Fantasy Suites, however? Check out the promo below!
Caroline Flack, a British television presented and personality best known for hosting Love Island, was found dead in her apartment on Saturday.
She was 40 years old.
The sad piece of news has been confirmed by both The Mirror and The Sun, a pair of tabloid newspapers in England.
As of this writing, no cause of death has been confirmed or announced.
“We can confirm that our Caroline passed away today on the 15th February,” read a family statement given to the U.K.’s Press Association, adding:
“We would ask that the press both respect the privacy of the family at this difficult time.”
Flack -- who began her career as an actress and who actually dated Prince Harry and Harry Styles -- left her position on Love Island in late 2019 after she was accused of attacking her boyfriend, Lewis Burton.
At the time, Burton claimed that Flack hit him with a lamp -- but he has since backtracked on this allegation and Flack always maintained her innocence.
The incident in question took place on December 14 and it resulted in Flack being hospitalized because she was reportedly cut with broken glass during the confrontation.
According to The Sun, her death came just one day after Burton made contact with Flack, defying a court ban in the process.
Flack's assault trial was scheduled to begin in just a few weeks.
Burton, meanwhile, shared the photo below of himself and Flack just hours before the latter was discovered dead:
“The most extraordinary woman. This is wrong. And I’m angry. This is so wrong,” The Sun‘s Dan Wootton wrote on Instagram as news began to spread, alongside a photograph of Flack.
He then added on Twitter:
“Caroline is one of the most extraordinary woman I’ve ever met. She was kind to a fault. She cared like no one else. She was vulnerable. Other people’s feelings meant the world to her.
"She deserved so much more. I am truly heartbroken. This is so wrong. So wrong."
On Thursday, Flack briefly commented on her legal case, taking to her Instagram Stories and saying she could not keep quiet any longer.
"I'm going to speak today… mine and my family's life is no longer up for entertainment or gossip," she wrote at the time.
But that was all she said in the end.
However, this is what she stated upon stepping down as Love Island host in December:
There have been a significant number of media reports and allegations in regards to my personal life.
While matters were not as have been reported, I am committed to cooperating with the appropriate authorities and I can’t comment further on these matters until the legal process is over.
However, Love Island has been my world for the last five years, it’s the best show on telly. In order not to detract attention from the upcoming series I feel the best thing I can do is stand down for Series 6.
I want to wish the incredible team working on the show a fantastic series in Cape Town.
Love Island is currently airing its latest season in the United Kingdom.
As mentioned above, Flack was due back in court on March 4, an appearance she mentioned not very long ago on Instagra, writing:
“Thankfully I know a lot of you will not believe all that you have heard and read following today’s court hearing…Thank you for your continued support and love…
"It’s going to be a relief when I am able to give my side of the story, when I’m allowed to."
UPDATE: The Sun has written that Flack took her own life.
But we cannot confirm this reporting at this time.
May she rest in peace.

Oh, she went there this week, folks.
You better believe it:
To mark a very special occasion on Sister Wives Sunday night, Christine Brown absolutely went there.
On the latest episode of this TLC favorite (which was available on the Internet only last week, in case you were confused over recaps from several days ago), Kody once again pushed for his dream scenario of building one gigantic home in Arizona.
And it was once again met with disdain from the Sister Wives.
The uncomfortable conversation seemed especially troubling for Christine Brown, who said on air that she did not want to see Kody go on a date with another wife.
She hated the idea of sharing one entrance and being exposed to exactly what Kody was doing on a daily basis.
The women are obviously aware that Kody has these other relationships… and yet Robyn agreed that being faced with witnessing the ways in which he interacts with his fellow wives would sort of suck.
She said in response to the polygamous palace proposal that she did “not want the awkward moment of running into another wife.”
Robyn was against the idea because she felt living under one roof might lead to divorce, “plural marriage is already hard without all the extra rubbing,” she actually noted.
Then there was Janelle, who apparently slept on ths concept and came out in favor of it.
She said she “really wants this” because she believes it would strengthen the family bond, having previously admitted the Sister Wives are not close.
“There is a psychological thing of – we live in one home. We are a family. And our kids do feel like they’re siblings but our older kids have a different kind of bond than our little children do.” Janelle explained.
The lone Kody supporter continued as follows:
“I feel sometimes like I’m the only person in the family that thinks what we had in Lehi, Utah, was awesome.
“The living under one house. It wasn’t Utopia, there are things that definitely we need to change. But the whole idea of living together, I think, was so brilliant. And beautiful.”
In the end, Kody asked the women to pray on it and try not to be close minded.
Cut to Valentine’s Day, a rather awkward occasion for a family comprised of four romances, you know?
Kody aimed to make the holiday as family-friendly and as all-inclusive as possible so that none of the wives and/or their kids feel left out.
Therefore, everyone gathered at one house and Kody went out of his way to ensure that each woman was given equal attention, presenting them with elaborate bouquets and gift bags for the children.
And then it happened:
Robyn gave Kody a kiss in response to the flowers.
She did it in front of the other wives, which is a majorr Brown Family No-No; it totally breaks the protocol of keeping one’s romance with Kody private from the other women.
In a couch confessional, though, Robyn felt no remorse, saying she ought to be able to simply thank her husband without concern for blowback or some silly rule.
(Editor’s Note: This decision will only excaerbate the belief that Kody plays favorites.)
Meri, for whatever it’s worth, seemed most offended by Robyn’s actions here.
Elsewhere, Kody turned 51 years old and his better halves surprised him with shirts that read “Home is Where Your Wives Are.”
How sweet, we guess?
Kody later admitted to the camera, though, that Flagstaff won’t really feel like home until the Las Vegas houses sell and he can relax about money.
Finally, we close with some very happy news… that doesn’t center around Kody for once.
She showed up in Arizona to tell everyone about girlfriend Audrey’s proposal and her acceptance and their plans to marry!
We send this couple our very best wishes for a bright future that doesn’t include plural marriage because it’s a horribly unfair and very sexist arrangement.
The Bachelor aired the fiirst of two episodes planned for this week on Monday night.
But while that may seem excessive, Peter Weber went ahead and upped his own ante during the latest installment of this franchise yesterday evening...
... by sending SIX women home.
It was an all-out war between the women from the start, as the contestants screamed over Peter's decision to bring Alayah back into the mansion after originally sending her home over concerns that she was being “fake.”
“I don’t care what anyone in there says. I know that you have an amazing heart,” Weber told Alayah after pulling her aside amid the tension and adding:
“I felt such a strong connection with you from night one.”
Sounds sweey, right? Except... Peter then went Alayah home because it thought it was all too much for her to handle.
Peter then apologized to the rest of the women
for following ABC's lame script for creating a “toxic” situation, which they seemed to mostly accept.
“I’m asking the women to trust me right now, but I feel like a lot of them probably don’t,” Peter explained. “I deserve to be called out. I messed up. That was a slap in their face, and I see that now.”
Even after this early drama, Peter then had to anchor an actual rose ceremony, during which he sent Deandra, Kiarra and Savanah packing.
And then the fun finally got underway -- with a trip to Costa Rica!
It didn't take long, however, for Peter to sustain a forehead injury in a golf cart accident in during a day off from shooting.
While the accident wasn't shown on air, Peter showed up with a bandage on his head and filled the women in on what transpired.
“I ran into a golf cart,” he said with a laugh after concocting a story about a run-in with a puma.
“I had a glass in my hand, as I hit my head I then shattered the glass into my head. It just sounds ridiculous. I frickin’ stabbed myself in the head. I will never forget this experience.”
Thankfully, Peter was able to recover sufficiently enough to take Sydney for a helicopter ride... have a picnic with her... and, of course, swap a lot of spit.
“You know, you’re the best kisser,” he told her. “That’s our secret. Don’t tell anyone.”
Later, while eating, Peter and Sydney grew even closer after she got candid up about her parents’ divorce and her estranged relationship with her father.
Feeling like he’s finally “peeling back the layers” of Sydney, Peter gave her a rose.
Meanwhile, back at the house, Kelsey, who had a one-on-one last Monday, was starting to feel the pressure of competing for the handsome pilot's attention.
She broke down into tears while talking to Tammy.
It was one thing for her to feel annoyed that Peter was out with another woman... but Kesley then took it up 27 notches.
“She’s a dramatic f-ckin bitch,” she said to Tammy of Kelsey. “I don’t care about all these girls and their drama.”
(Editor's Note: In that case, boy oh boy, are you on the wrong show!)
Following the group date (a bikini photoshoot with Cosmopolitan Magazine), Kelsey told Peter that ,despite feeling insecure about the process, she was falling in love with him.
“Honestly, I never expected to have feelings this strong,” she said. “It felt really good to get the validation I did tonight. It made me really happy.”
Kelsey would soon feel sad, however, because Tammy ratted her out and told Peter all about her Sydney bashing.
“Kelsey had a mental breakdown because Sydney went off with you in a helicopter. She was sitting by herself crying her eyes out,” she told Weber. “I’ve seen multiple times that she’s drinking excessively.”
Whoa there! We just entered new territory of accusations, didn't we?
Was this breakdown part true, Peter proceeded to ask Kelsey?
“I was emotional, but it wasn’t a breakdown,” she replied through tears, attempting to explain:
“I want you to know I didn’t have an emotional breakdown. I was sad, I was really sad. It’s not like every day has been like that. It was just the first time after a one-on-one where my feelings were really strong.”
Kelsey then cried once again after talking to the other suitors and hearing them blame her for all the drama.
On a sexier note, Peter took Kelley to a spiritual guru for a one-on-one date, where they strip down to their bathing suits for a cleansing ritual.
Peter then admitted to Kelley that she seemed hesitant to open up, prompting her to reply:
“I want someone to be my other half. I want to be with someone who we are a power couple. I’m looking for someone to challenge me on a day to day.”
This was enough for her to earn a rose.
Back to the drama at the house:
Kelsey learned that Tammy was the one who told Peter she was kind of an alcoholic, an allegation she tried to shoot down when chatting next with Peter.
“For some reason, Tammy is going around telling everyone that I have a drinking problem. Then it turned into popping pills,” Kelsey told The Bachelor. “It’s very hurtful.”
The conversation further strengthed her bond with Peter.
“It’s sad to me to think that she was made to feel that uncomfortable,” he told the camera. “I loved that she felt the need to come over and it meant enough to her to clarify things with me.”
So much so that he simply gave Kelsey a rose right then and there.
This pissed off the other women, as did the fact that Peter canceled that night's cocktail party.
“It just kind of sucks because maybe if you hadn’t gone to talk to him, maybe we could have had a cocktail party,” Lexi told Kelsey.
It all got so ugly, you guys.
Kelsey said at one point the only pills she takes are “Adderall and birth control," while Tammy lashed out at Sydney for criticizing her over involving Peter in the house drama, labeling her a “princess.”
The other women were upset that rumors were distracting from their potential time to make connections. Literally, EVERYone started crying.
Before Peter starts giving out roses, Tammy pulled him aside.
“I would just hope that you would never think that I’m coming from a malicious place,” she said to him. “I’m here to focus on my relationship with you.”
Feeling left out, Mykenna then interrupted these two to tell Peter how much the drama has been weighing on her.
While viewers didn't see much of the conversation, Peter was left standing alone and looking very sad.
He eventually returned and sent Lexi and Shiann home.
What a total mess.
Before Wednesday's episode airs, take a breath and visit our section of The Bachelor spoilers to see what happens next.
We've got a legitimate shocker, reality television fans.
We strongly hope you're sitting down for this news.
Yes? Okay? Are you prepared? Here. We. Go...
Tamra Judge is leaving The Real Housewives of Orange County.
“It’s been a wild ride, and after all these years, I’m looking forward to life away from the cameras,” Judge told People Magazine in a statement, adding:
“I was offered a chance to come back to the show in a limited role, but would prefer to walk away on my own terms.”
Judge had been on the long-running series -- which heads into its 15th year in a few months -- for a full dozen seasons prior to learning she was going to be demoted.
Some folks may not realize this, but she is currently the longest-tenured Real Housewives cast member in history.
Judge, who was reportedly asked to return for a mere three episodes in 2020, also confirmed her departure on Saturday, January 25, with an Instagram post that showed her and husband Eddie Judge.
“It’s been a wild 12 years. But it’s time to move on,” she captioned the image. “Im sad to go but I’m very excited about my future. Love you guys.”
Bravo viewers quickly reacted to the news, with one commenting on the post that the show is “no longer worth watching without you and Vicki," while another chiled in that “there better be a dang tres amigas show in the works or something….”
Indeed, Vicki Gunvalson was bumped down to "friend" status last season and recently hinted that she'd be open to a spinoff.
She also announced on Friday that she would not be back in any capacity for Season 15, confirming rumors we had reported that MAJOR cast changes were in the works.
Said Vicki in her own statement this week:
"It's been an incredible ride for 14 years and I want thank all of you for your support, for your love and for 'whooping it up' with me along the way...
"My podcast with Westwood One will be launching soon and I will have much more to say about this on Whoop It Up With Vicki.
"I hope you will join me with my new journey so please stay tuned. I love all my fans, and I want to thank Bravo and Evolution for this incredible experience which my family and I have will never forget."
Throughout her run on the beloved program, Judge had been responsible for some of its most memorable moments, including the show’s very first wine toss.
She also led a three-episode spinoff series, Tamra’s OC Wedding, which chronicled her June 2013 wedding to husband Eddie at the Monarch Beach Resort in Dana Point, California.
Andy Cohen, meanwhile, reacted to Judge’s news on Saturday, Tweeting:
“An unprecedented run from a woman who was always entertaining, surprising and dramatic – and never ever aged. And now she’s the queen of CBD!”
Speaking to People, Tamra talked about both her family and her future and how the two are aligned in her decision.
“Eddie and the kids are very excited,” she said of her husband and her four kids -- sons Ryan Vieth, 34, and Spencer Barney 19, and daughter Sydney Barney, 21, and Sophia Barney, 14.
“I want to thank all the fans who have offered me their support over the years,” she added. “It’s meant a lot.”
Last season, The Real Housewives of Orange county featured Judge, Shannon Beador, Kelly Dodd, Gina Kirschenheiter, Emily Simpson and Braunwyn Windham-Burke.
The official cast for Season 15 has not yet been revealed, but Cohen had the following to say when asked about the possibility of newcomers to the franchise:
The casting for next season is some of the best casting we've had.
No matter how it shakes out, it's going to be great because we have great casting. It's hard to make moves when you don't have a bench, both on the show and casting wise.
A Little People, Big World star has some rather huge news to share.
Taking once again to her Instagram Story on January 22, Tori Roloff tried to answer the main question on the minds of fans around the country.
How is she doing at home as the mother of two young kids?
Not quite, even though Tori has well over one million followers who are often curious about how things are going for Tori and Zach Roloff with their newborn daughter and toddler son.
In this case, however, the pressing question centered not on Tori's personal life... but on her professional life.
“When does the new season air?” a social media user asked Tori of Little People, Big World, prompting a surprising answer from the beloved TLC star:
So there you have it, folks. Sort of.
Tori's response is rather broad and vague, of course, but it does fit the typical Little People, Big World timeline.
The series premiered on April 2 in 2019 and aired new episodes through June 4.
If it really does follow this same pattern in 2020 -- kicking off a new season on the first Tuesday of April -- then that means we'll have Tori and her family back in our lives on April 7.
But don't quote us on that! It's merely an educated guess.
When the long-running program does return, it will not lack for storylines; that much is for certain.
Tori and Zach welcomed daughter Lilah into the world a short while before Thanksgiving.
Just over two months later, Audrey and Jeremy Roloff welcomed a son named Bode.
And before these blessed events took place, Amy Roloff got engaged to Chris Marek. And she has also moved off the farm and into her very own place for the first time in decaces.
Tragically, she also bid farewell to her mother last fall.
Like we said, a lot has gone down of late!
Mostly good and mostly all very promosing for the future of these loved ones.
The Roloffs excel at social media use, at least, so we've been able to follow most of these developments in real time.
But it's always fun to go behind the scenes on Little People, Big World and to see certain things that only television cameras can capture, you know?
Are you excited for the return of Little People, Big World?
Are you still watching, even in the absence of Audrey and Jeremy, who left the series in the summer of 2018?
And just how adorable is little Bode?!? Check out some of his best and cutest photos below:
In 2018, My 600-lb Life star LB Bonner died by suicide at the young, young age of 30. He was a fan favorite and it was a tragedy.
Now, his family is suing My 600-lb Life's production company for gross negligence and more. They hope to change the show for the better.
Starcasm reports that LB Bonner's family is now suing production company Megalomedia, alleging that they have some culpability in his death.
The lawsuit accuses the production company of "gross negligence."
Allegations include production backin out of multiple promises to LB and pressuring him into filming when he was not prepared.
When this took its toll on his mental health, the production company allegedly failed to provide him with adequate health care.
As part of the evidence that LB's family is presenting with the lawsuit, they cite text messages that LB sent to a member of the production team.
"I am a f--ked up wreck right now," reads one text message.
In another, he warned the producer: “I’m not in a good place right now it’s dark." In another: “I had a breakdown.”
Apparently one of the text replies that LB received was: “Fake it till you make it."
In addition, Megalomedia allegedly "demanded" that LB shave his beard.
When he wanted to move to Texas to obtain work, they allegedly forbade him from doing so until they worked out an approve filming schedule.
When LB did move, they then had him return to his old home in South Carolina, unpack, and then repack so that they could film it all.
Hopefully, we do not have to explain that moving is considered one of the most stressful experiences that the average person has in their lives.
The lawsuit does acknowledge that LB Bonner received therapy -- but alleges that production gave him only one therapy session.
Additional therapy sessions would only come on an "as needed basis," which was apparently ill-defined and insufficient.
Viewers of My 600-lb Life may be shocked to hear that Megalomedia allegedly did not "pay for all charges associated with" the weight loss surgery.
The lawsuit claims that LB was inundated with calls from “bill collectors … harassing LB for payment and impairing his credit."
One of the consequences that LB allegedly faced after his dramatic weight loss and this extreme stress was something truly shocking.
Per the lawsuit: "due to the rapid weight loss and lack of sufficient after care, LB’s teeth became loose and some fell out."
Additionally: "his vision became impaired, and he suffered from general malaise."
"All the while he continued to suffer psychologically and physically, the show continued to pressure," the lawsuit accuses.
The lawsuit was filed by LB's mother, Karen Sue, his father, James, and his ssiter, Tera Ann Shumaker, who is also the executor of his estate.
According to the lawsuit, the family “seek[s] monetary relief well in excess of $1,000,000.00."
In the grand scheme of things, a $1 million lawsuit isn't that much when you're talking about the death of a human being.
But there's a reason for this, as the family is reportedly looking for "a monetary verdict to change the reality show industry."
For years, people -- from those who have had their own weight loss journeys to folks on social media -- have expressed concerns about My 600-lb Life.
While it's not the worst show out there for overweight people (looking at you, The Biggest Loser), it's known that rapid weight loss has real risks.
Of course, we ourselves cannot confirm the contents of the lawsuit to be true, or identify what else may come up during the case.
We hope that justice is served, and our thoughts are with LB's loved ones as they continue to mourn is passing.
MTV has announced the return date for Jersey Shore: Family Vacation.
The network has also unveiled the official synopsis for the continuation of Season 3, and you won’t believe this, but…
… major drama is on the way!
So are a handful of locales, as our favorite quasi family takes its often-wasted show on the road.
Let’s start with the upcoming air time and date, however:
The series will kick off a run of new episodes on Thursday, February 27th at 8pm ET/PT.
These all-new episodes, according to MTV, will take the group across the country – New Jersey, New Orleans and Las Vegas – for “surprises, tears and even more outrageous moments.”
What else can fans expect this winter and spring?
The cable network teases that all of the aforementioned developments and reactions will “lead up to a wildly memorable trip down the aisle for one of the cast members.”
What could this be referring to? We have no idea.
Which means we’ll need to tune in, we suppose.
In its press release, MTV also ran down each of the returning fan favorites and what we can look forward to seeing from them over the next several weeks. To wit:
Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino? He’s out of prison after spending time behind bars for his admitted role in a bankruptcy fraud scheme.
Look for Sitch to rejoin the group after his long-awaited release from jail, and for the roommates to finally feel whole again, prepared for a fresh start.
Elsewhere, Nicole and Deena will “continue to live their best ‘mommy’ lives,” the network says in weird fashion, basically previewing how each will be busy as a parent of young kids.
Jenni, meanwhile, will embrace her new single life, many months after finalizing her divorce from Roger Mathews and also after splitting from her boyfriend – who, toward the end of last year, nearly tore the household apart with his actions.
Vinny? He’s happily eating carbs again. Really. That’s what the network teases.
Elsewhere, Ronnie’s “quest for inner peace is always foiled because of his on-again/off-again relationship,” which took yet another dangerous turn a few days ago when he accused Jen Harley of a new attack.
Finally, DJ Pauly D will be touring the country conquering the DJ world — and Angelina is gearing up to get married!
You’ll notice that Snooki isn’t included in this rundown.
And that’s because she, shockingly, will not be coming back to the show.
“I have to do what’s best for me at the moment, and I am retiring from Jersey Shore,” Snooki said in early December, adding:
“I hate being away from the kids, I don’t like partying three days in a row, it’s just not my life anymore.
“And I wanna be home with the kids. I don’t mind a here or there going to a dinner or whatever, but it’s just really hard on me to leave the kids and film the show.”
How will the roommates get by without her? Click below to find out:
Concluded Snooki on her Jersey Shore resignation:
“I’m not saying goodbye … I just need to move on from the show because I don’t like the direction it’s going in when it comes to the drama and the cattiness.”
We can’t imagine Jersey Shore without the Snookster, can you?
Just consider all the ways in which she evolved and all the things she did over the last decade:
Sister Wives jumped ahead a few weeks on Sunday night.
When we last left the Browns, Meri was settling back in Las Vegas by herself after her new Arizona neighbors took issue with her polygamous lifestyle.
The show’s second episode of 2020, however, fast forwarded six weeks to Meri’s Flagstaff return, as she found a new place to rent in Arizona that cost more per month… but for a very good reason.
While the TLC may have skipped ahead more than a month, though, not much changed between the first two episodes.
Which is to say the following: all other Sister Wives pretty much hate Meri… and they barely even pretend otherwise at this point.
Last week, none of them offered Meri their home as a temporary residence; this week, none of them helped their supposed loved one move into her new digs.
In the latter’s case, this may have been an issue of jealousy as well, considering the family pulled up together to Meri’s enormous four-story rental in Flagstaff — replete with two master bedrooms, an elevator, and built-in waterfall with koi fish — and could not believe it.
After reacting in shock to Meri’s house, Robyn, Christine, Meri, and Janelle all met for lunch to catch up because they were feeling so isolated.
Meri mentioned that she was sleeping on a mattress on the floor and would love for the whole family help her move her things into her house.
And this is when the tension became most evident.
“Meri lives in this house built up the side of the mountain,” Robyn explained in a confessional of why she refused to help, adding:
“So, she has these huge stairs all the way up the side of her house and every time I walk up those stairs, I about faint.”
When this is brought up during the lunch itself, Meri argues that offering assisting each oother is “kinda what family does.”
Makes sense to us — but Robyn notes that the stairs at Meri’s house are “insane.”
She reveals that their fellow Sister Wives are afraid they’ll damage Meri’s stuff going up and down the steps during the moving process. So why not just hire professionals to do it?
“I don’t want to hire somebody. I do not want to hire somebody. I want to have family around,” Meri, on the brink of tears, said in her own confessional.
“I’d rather have my family come and help me put my stupid bag together then pay somebody to do it, because that would mean I would have some family interaction, which I think is really important.”
While Meri and the Wives are trying to sort all this out, Kody is meeteing up with his friend, Nathan, to share a 3D rendering of his dream polygamist palace.
Yes, he still hopes to move everyone under one roof someday.
Nathan’s eyes can’t believe what they’re seeing — and his brain likely can’t fathom that Kody thinks there will be “rapturous joy” when he reunites the family in this manner.
In the end, however, this episode was once again all about Meri and how estranged she feels from the family.
“What the hell? Why am I crying over this,” she said at one point, prior to wiping her tears away with a tissue.
She then shared how she’s “hearing Christine and Janelle talk about how they’re feeling isolated and alone,” which she thinks is an issue that can be solved if they do the work “together.”
The women just aren’t having it, though.
“This isn’t like a big deal. Just hire people to help you with the big stuff, we’ll come over and help you with the smaller stuff,” Robyn said of the situation in a confessional/
“It’s no big deal at all, that’s no brainer. She just needs to let us know.”
Why can’t Kody help? Please. This suggestion is scoffed at by Robyn, who says he isn’t there “for any of us and that’s just what it is to be a plural wife.” Sounds awesome, guys!
We conclude with Meri sayingshe understands why the Sister Wives don’t want to assist in the heavy lifting, although she feels that their “love and caring” for her is “conditional.”
Sounds about right to us.
Also sounds like time for Meri to get the heck outta there.
Tragedy has once again struck the world of reality television.
The former MTV personality, who played a key role on the show Are You The One, was found dead at her home in West Virginia on Thursday.
She was 23 years old.
According to TMZ, police arrived at this residence after receiving a call that a woman was in cardiac arrest.
While the outlet reports that no foul play is suspected, police are waiting for a toxicology report to determine her cause of death.
No foul play is suspected, but the authorities are waiting on the results of a toxicology report to determine the cause of Eddy's death.
Eddy appeared on season 6 of MTV’s reality dating competition in 2017.
Viewers may remember the West Virginia native saying on camera that her cousin was a convicted murderer during the season. It was a standout moment at the time.
We don't want to speculate on what may have happened here, but Eddy was very open and candidon social media about her struggles with substance abuse.
However, as recently as late this past Septembe,r she said she and her father were both clean and sober.
As you can see above, Eddy was understandably proud of this accomplishment.
“Pic on the right was two years ago… what a difference,” she captioned these two photos with her dad on Twitter. “So very blessed today. #RecoveryRocks.”
As for the details behind her passing and what transpired, they are still coming in at this time.
However, a family member tells TMZ that Alexis arrived home to her mom's house Wednesday night around 11 p.m. and seemed to be just fine.
She was then discovered by another family member the next morning; her loved ones, for what it's worth, believe Eddy had remained sober from the fall up through her tragic death.
Along with the above snapshot, Eddy shared a selfie in September from outside the Community Recovery Center.
“Recovery at its finest. Gr8ful 2 b clean & sober #justfortoday,” she wrote at the time via Instagram.
In October, Eddy also announced her engagement to Nate Lee.
“Went to play in the woods…Walked out engaged,” she captioned a series of images from the proposal at the time. “Love you @natelee4176.”
In another caption, she wrote: “Another picture with the love of my life #SURPRISE. Here’s to finding my soulmate.”
The couple seemingly split, thought, prior to Eddy’s untimely passing.
In addition to tweeting about dating, Eddy stated she was spending New Year’s Eve as a single person last month.
“I’m bringing a mirror with me out tonight so I can kiss myself when the ball drops,” she wrote on December 31 oon Twitter. “#2020 got love for ME and ME ONLY."
We send our condolences to the friend, family members and loved ones of Alexis Eddy.
May she rest in peace.
Billy Smith and Joe Smith, twin brothers who starred on the British TLC reality show My Big Fat Gypsy Wedding, were found dead on Saturday in England, multiple outlets have confirmed.
They were 32 years old.
The causes of their deaths were not made public.
However, the bodies of these siblings were discovered near a country road near a farm in rural Sevenoaks, Kent -- they are believed to have taken their own lives in a joint suicide.
The Sun was the first publication to make this allegation in print.
But Celebrity Big Brother winner Paddy Doherty has at least confirmed the fatal news on Facebook, calling it a "terrible, terrible tragedy" and adding:
"I'm very sorry for their troubles from the bottom of my heart. May God look after them, may God have mercy on them, they are two angels, harmless, they were unbelievable."
Concluded Doherty in a Facebook video:
"Anyone watching this please say a prayer for those left behind. May God look after them. They are two angels. They're in the kingdom of Heaven, walking on gold."
Elsewhere, Billy's partner, Kristina Davey, wrote the following on social media:
"Hardest day of my life. RIP my perfect Bill, you were so pure so lovely. You made me the happiest girl - did everything for me, showed me love I never had.
"You always see stuff like this but you just never think it'll happen to you."
"I can't believe I have to type this together struggling to speak never mind put a sentence together," Davey continued. "I'm gonna make you so so proud my Bill, my life, my angel."
Bill and Joe starred in the third season of the aforementioned hit show. They were just 24 years old and working as gardeners at the time.
My Big Fat Gypsy Wedding, overall, chronicles the lives of and traditions of Irish traveler families.
Kent resident Jane Chippendale told The Mirror that Bill and Joe -- the father of a young son and daughter -- worked for their uncle's landscaping company... and had recently stayed at her house for almost two months because there was no room at a local B&B.
She added that she last saw them aboout a month ago when they moved out and told her they were going to live at an aunt's house, shortly after they returned from a trip to Thailand.
"They were like sons when they were here," she told this newspaper.
"They were so identical. It was hard to tell them apart. I can still see them smiling in front of me."
As of this writing, police are investigating the tragedy and will soon file an official report.
Without divulging the details why they believe so, however, the authorities are very confident these brothers took their own lives.
May they rest in peace.
And, according to a new report, some of the faces you see down below may not return in 2020.
Indeed, major changes may be in the works.
Then again, they may not be.
Radar Online reports that producers are strongly considering rehiring Tamra Judge, Shannon Beador, Vicki Gunvalson and Kelly Dodd once again, “but they don’t want the show to become redundant and stale."
We believe the contracts of all these long-time cast members are up, meaning it's more likely than it has been in the recent past that at least some of the women are not brought back.
Ahead of Season 14, of course, Vicki Gunvalson was demoted from series regular to mere "friend."
“The drama was good with Tamra, Shannon, Vicki and Kelly,” this Radar source continues. “But do viewers want to keep seeing the same thing over and over?"
It's a fair question, and also a difficult one.
As Bravo's longest-running franchise, The Real Housewives of Orange County is in the unique position of knowing just what/who works -- but executives don't want to run these people into the ground.
Better to shake up the cast a year too early than a year too late, you know?
As for Emily Simpson, Gina Kirschenheiter and Brauwyn Windham-Burke?
Radar describes each as being on the "chopping block," elaborating as follows:
“The viewers don’t connect with the new ladies as much as the longer-existing ones. A few new ones will return but the viewers are invested in the main four.”
During the reunion specials, of course, Vicki accused Brauwyn of “destroying” the series she had built, mostly through raunchy antics such as kissing another woman and walking around in the nude.
However, this source tells Radar that ratings were actually solid for Season 14.
Vicki "doesn't drive the show," this report states, seemingly hinting that new cast members are in better position for next year than some of the more seasoned personalities.
Make you think and wonder, doesn't it?
Vicki, meanwhile, is already having regrets.
Perhaps she realizes that her future on the program really is in doubt.
"Yep, I’m pretty disappointed in how I acted too,” she wrote on social media after the reunion aired.
“It was a horrible night, and there is a lot you didn’t see. I’ll take the blame for getting upset, but I had enough of being lied to."
Who do YOU want to see return for The Real Housewives of Orange County Season 15?
Dean Unglert will not be home for the holidays.
But the Bachelor in Paradise star will still be around for the holidays, which means Unglert has a lot to be thankful for after taking a nasty spill while skiing this week.
The 28-year old posted a selfie from his hospital bed Monday evening and wrote that he is "extremely grateful" to be recovering from a wipeout that "could have been so much worse," elaborating as follows:
All my life i’ve dreamt about skiing the swiss alps. how could you not? they’re huge and beautiful and have some of the best snow in the world.
Today, however, was not my day.
i was sending just a liiiiitle too hard and took a nasty spill which ultimately put me here. and since this is probably going to be the only pic i get in switzerland, i figured i gotta post it.
Unglert went on to detail hoow it took him an hour to flag someone down for assistance -- but, once he was located, the reality star was airlifted and in emergency surgery in less than an hour.
As a result, Dean offered strong praise for the Swiss mountain rescue, who he said "blew my mind today."
The ABC alum, who lives in his van and is known for posting a lot of outdoor adventures on Instagram, will need to take it easy for a while. U
Unglert said he suffered a dislocated hip and a fractured femur, requiring four screws and a plate in his leg.
Unglert was a major presence on the latest season of Bachelor in Paradise, meeting girlfriend Caelynn Miller-Keyes during his stint on the island.
After leavinv sad face emojis on Unglert’s original post, the former pageant queen took to her Instagram Story and wrote this to Dean shortly afterward:
“I just want to squeeze you so bad."
Unglert reposted a snapshot of the pair and proved he still has his sense of humor from the hospital.
“Look at how that cheek perfectly contours that forehead. much wow,” he joked in response. “Also. plz don’t squeeze me. that would hurt. thx."
Other Bachelor Nation stars also reacted in shock to Dean's accident.
"Dean! I am your biggest fan! If you lift my shirt up and look under my armpit you will see a unnatural marking that will prove this to you!" wrote Ben Higgins, adding:
"As the chairman of your fan-club I hope you were wearing a helmet for safety!” the former Bachelor wrote. “If not, on behalf of your fan club I am going to force you from here on out! Please be safe.
'We need you. We need your face!"
Then there was this from JoJo Fletcher:
“Deanie!!! Ahhh so glad you’re okay tho!!"
And this from Chris Harrison:
"Damn boy sorry for the bad spill. Get better. Beaches of paradise are never this dangerous."
And this from Jared Haibon:
"Oh no!! Hope you’re doing okay buddy! That’s terrible."
And, finally, this from Peter Kraus, who appeared opposite Dean on The Bachelorette Season 13 as a suitor:
"Good lord man! Praying for a fast recovery for you! Rest easy."
For those who missed it, we previously revealed a number of secrets regarding the upcoming The Bachelor season premiere.
Click here for The Bachelor spoilers galore.
Today, however, we’re here to run down a spoiler of a different kind; of the entirely opposite kind, in fact.
That’s right, folks, we have intel on The Bachelor season finale.
And it comes from a man who basically makes a living as the one person who knows more about this franchise than anyone else on planet Earth.
Yup: We’re looking at you, Reality Steve!
On this television expert’s latest podcast, Steve Carbone said something that has been making headlines ever since – and for good reason.
Carbone revealed on Thursday that the concluding episode of Peter Weber’s run, which will likely wrap up in May, is unconventional.
“In regards to the finale… I can say with about as much certainty as possible that this was not a normal ending this season.”
That’s all Reality Steve would say on this topic.
Previously, though, he did provide some Bachelor spoilers that at least give fans a clear idea of which suitors will be at the center of this eventual finale.
And he reiterated them again here.
“I can say that I’m very, very confident in saying [that] as we know, Hannah Sluss and Madison Prewett are your two said,” Carbone said on this new podcast, referencing his prior late November announcement.
Hannah is a 23-year-old from Knoxville, Tennesee… while Madison is a 23-year-old from Birmingham, Alabama.
Which of the two will prevail … or will neither of them?
The final Rose Ceremony will also take place in Alice Springs, a small town located in Australia’s Northern Territory and considered the capital of the Australian Outback.
And it sounds very much as if Weber will not come back from that unique location as anyone’s fiance.
This doesn’t mean that Weber might not be engaged right now.
Steve explains that he and his chosen winner may very well have agreed to get married at some point after the finale was filmed.
But the Oracle of The Bachelor spoilers sounds rather adament that Peter does NOT propose on this final episode.
Interesting and intriguing, right?
Outside of Reality Steve, no one else associated with the long-running show has said much about Season 24. Like at all.
We do know, of course, that Hannah Brown will somehow be involved… and that Peter had the time of his life during shooting.
Can you blame a single guy, really?
After the season wrapped, Peter captioned a photo of himself smiling with his beloved dog on Instagram last month.
“Just got back from two months of the most insane journey ever… Told my boy everything and he can’t believe it!”
If dogs could talk.
The Bachelor premieres on January 6 at 8/7c on ABC with a three-hour opening installment. Yes, three hours. Oy vey.
There's one reason that Austen Kroll is giving relationship updates and Kelly Dodd is chilling with Ramona Singer in New York.
The very first Bravocon is here, and at the convention, Andy Cohen made a startling, exciting announcement.
"We’ve always tried to choose a city that has completely unique personalities," Andy Cohen announced at the big reveal on Saturday.
He continued: "And we also try to throw a little curveball now and then."
"Pick somewhere you weren’t expecting,” he clarified..
Andy then expressed: “We are very excited to travel to Salt Lake City, Utah!"
"You didn’t see it coming," Andy freely acknowledged.
"But I have to tell you, in Utah, you have the majesty of the mountains, the Mormon religion," he listed.
Andy continueds: "An exclusive community of people who have very successful businesses who live in their own universe."
“It is gorgeous," he gushed. "And I think you’re going to be really surprised and intrigued by the group of women we’ve found."
Bravo also released a more formal reveal of the exciting new addition to the wildly successful franchise.
"The Real Housewives of Salt Lake City takes viewers into an undiscovered world," the official Bravo announcement reads.
The statement adds that it's a world "that is about so much more than religion."
"Although," the announcement acknowledges, "the Mormon church is undeniably ingrained in the culture."
"In the majestic mountains of Utah is a hidden social circle made up of successful women," the announcement contnues.
Bravo describes them as woman "who have created their own paradise filled with luxury homes, shopping sprees, and multi-million-dollar businesses and brands."
"With Hollywood’s exclusive Sundance Film Festival in their backyards," the statement notes.
Bravo teases: "These Type-A power-brokers are accustomed to rubbing elbows with A-listers and what party list you are on means everything."
"They have mastered running wildly successful enterprises by day and enjoy après ski at the finest resorts by night," Bravo dishes.
The announcement adds that they do this "all the while raising extraordinary and unconventional families."
"Here perfection is not an aspiration, it’s a mandate," the network dramatically expresses.
That may be the single best line of the entire reveal. it's not even done and I'm already sold.
"They hold themselves and each other to an extremely high standard," Bravo's announcement points out.
The women have lofty expectations "and never hold back when things go sideways."
"But lord knows they are always there for each other when they need it most," the statement concludes.
That is so exciting ... but who will star on it?
Unfortunately, we do not yet have a cast list. If we did, we would be showing you their names instead of snaps from Reunion specials.
If you're like me, the first name who came to mind at the idea of wealthy housewives in Utah was Slate writer Nicole Cliffe.
But despite her cult-like following on Twitter, she has already confirmed that she will not be part of the cast.
She herself is speculating on Twitter about who might be a good fit for the show. Let's hope that she joins in Season 2.
Update: Nicole now reports that her network of Utah socialite friends have identified two cast members: Lisa Barlow and Angie Harrington.
On last week's The Real Housewives of Orange County, Tamra Judge was exposed as a two-faced manipulator and a "snake."
She had some real fallout to deal with after the other Housewives compared notes and realized that Tamra had been starting drama left and right.
But before she and Shannon could get into it, Tamra had another issue much closer to home.
Her eldest son, Ryan Vieth, is a deeply troubled man.
Hearing him admit his devastatingly low self-esteem issue as he discusses his mental and emotional health was a blow to Tamra's heart.
In fact, she confesses that it makes her want to die -- and she fears that Ryan could take his own life.
1. Tamra has some real concerns
2. Ryan's issues are clear
3. Tamra feels like she failed him
4. Ryan says ...
5. Speaking of Ryan's daughter, Ava
6. Tamra tells the camera
Things got very ugly on Jersey Shore: Family Vacation last night.
And, incredibly, none of the drama centered around Jen Harley and Ronnie Ortiz-Magro.
Instead, viewers tuned in to see the fallout from last week's interactions between Zack Clayton Carpinello, Jenni "JWoww" Farley and Angelina Pivarnick.
In real time, of course, Farley dumped Carpinello after she watched the previous episode and witnessed how he flirted up a storm with Angelina (while JWoww was passed out at a club).
But these installments were filmed months ago -- meaning Thursday night gave us a glimpse at at the complete $hitstorm that broke out the day after Zack, Jenni and Angelina got wasted during an evening out...
... and Zack totally groped a stunned Angelina on the dance floor.
The following morning, Jenni woke up -- still in her dress and still drunk.
As Zack quietly tried to get her ready for the airport, Vinny talked to Angelina in the living room.
"The weirdest thing is I saw you guys dancing at Drai's, and he grabbed you," he said, adding that he witnessed Zack "touching your ass."
YES! Thank you! Angelina was ecstatic to hear this.
"You saw it! You saw it! I saw your face! Oh, thank God. Thank God! I wasn't dreaming," she exclaimed, claiming that Zack told her after the club that he would be calling her to say hi.
She thought the entire situation was really odd and felt 24 just got "too comfortable, too quick."
"Even though I don't like Angelina, I actually agree with her right now, that that was kind of shady situation," Vin said in a later confessional.
"I know that Jenni is looking through Zack-colored lenses right now, but if Jenni finds out about this whole thing, she's gonna flip out."
Cut to everyone heading home and a text thread getting underway about what the heck happened between Zack and Angelina.
"We were in a group chat talking about the night Jenni was drunk in Vegas with 24," Vinny told the camera.
"I made a comment like, 'Yeah, and how about when Zack was dancing with Angelina?' Angelina says that Zack was grabbing her, she doesn't like 24, she's saying his intentions aren't good, and that really pissed off Jenni."
From there, the episode delved into a lot of he-said/she-said territory, as a now-sober JWoww tried to piece together what transpired.
During a FaceTime call with Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi to fill her in, she relayed her boyfriend's side of the scandalous story.
"Angelina's trying to turn it into something like he grabbed her. She f-cking kissed him!" Jenni shouted into the phone.
Elsewhere, Angelina was busy keeping her fiancé, Chris, in the loop.
"[Nicole] is texting me saying, 'What happened in Vegas? Did you make it a big deal that he was dancing with you?'" she read from her phone. "How f-cking dare her?!"
Back to Vinny:
"Any time you're on Jenni's bad side, you're also on Nicole's bad side," he explained.
"So Nicole starts to text Angelina like as Jenni's little attack chihuahua and was like, 'What are you saying about Zack?' So now it's an all-out war.
Jenni's now saying that Angelina tried to kiss Zack, Angelina's mad that everyone's teaming up on her, that this is gonna ruin her engagement.
"And we're all about to get together for Deena [Cortese]'s baby's baptism in just a couple days."
Angelina then cried on Deena's shoulder at the latter's house, insisting that she was the one wronged here.
"But what did Zack do? He just moved you out of the way?" Deena asked.
Angelina said it was an intentional and "inappropriate" grab that was causing major strain on her engagement and life in general.
"I'm stressed out. I lost so much weight over all this. This can break up my engagement, you know? Just her saying that? My fiancé thinks that this actually happened, and this is why I'm upset," she said, wiping away tears.
Jenni. for her part, was having trouble of her own... simply because she couldn't remember anything about the night in question.
"I just don't like being that person that's like, 'I don't remember any of it.' But I'm glad that I was that level because, if I would've saw that, her kissing him, and I was in a state of mind..." she said, imagining laying the smackdown on Angelina.
After Vinny tried to explain that Zack had acted inappropriate, Jenni blew him off and said that Carpinello claimed that Angelina kissed him.
"I'm sorry, but like, there's nothing for me to be mad at," she later told the camera, adding:
"Unless Zack like physically cheated on me, not my problem! If he kissed her, that would be a huge problem, but he didn't! Supposedly, she did.
"I don't trust Angelina. I truly believe Zack. He's just not capable of lying. There's nothing for him to gain out of that."
When Deena got together with Jenni and Nicole later that night, she explained that Angelina had come over and cried to her about the situation.
"'Cause she's guilty!" Jenni yelled. "I would cry, too, if I was like, 'Damn, I got f-cked up and I kissed someone.' Zack was like, 'I have nothing to hide. I would never disrespect you.' He hasn't even flinched over it."
(Editor's Note: Zack has since owned up to his actions.)
At the after-party for Deena's son's baptism, Angelina and JWoww were seated at different tables and managed to avoid each other.
But Snooki approached Angelina and said:
"Don't be mad at me. I didn't do anything."
Angelina replied" "Aw, that's cute, Nicole."
"I texted you to let you know what happened because I black out sometimes," Snooki explained.
"I f-ck up sometimes and I get drunk, and I'm like, 'What the f-ck did I do?' That's why I texted you, to be like, 'Girl, you were drunk. This is what I was hearing about you.'"
Angelina responded, in reference to Zack: "I just think you're defending someone that you shouldn't be defending."
And, with that, she left the party alongside Chris.
When will the much-hyped Angelina versus Jenni showdown actually take place?
Guess we'll need to tune in next Thursday night to find out!
Lee Rosbach has spoken out for the first time about every parent's worst nightmare.
The Below Deck star has given an interview in which he discusses the death of his son, Joshua.
As reported in July, the ship captain and reality star lost this child to an accidental overdose just a few months ago.
And, as you might obviously expect, Rosbach is still dealing with unimaginable pain in regard to the tragedy.
“I deal with it every day. I hate going to sleep, and I hate waking up. There’s a hole there that can’t be filled,” the Below Deck star told the New York Post’s Page Six on Saturday, October 12.
He continued, holding nothing back:
"And the person who said, ‘time heals all wounds,’ is full of it. It doesn’t. The only thing that time may do for you is allow you to learn the skills you need to cope with the situation that you’re dealing with.
"As parents, you’re not designed to bury your children.”
Joshua battled addiction for over 20 years prior to his passing.
He was found dead this summer at his home in Fort Lauderdale, Florida.
Lee, horrifically, was the person who found his son's body.
“I walked in and he was sitting on the sofa with his head in his hands, and I thought he had just passed out. I felt relieved. I thought he was fine,” Lee told the publication, adding:
“Then I went over to give him a hug, and he was cold. He’d gone."
Just incomprehensible all around.
Despite his son's aforementioned substance abuse issues, the reality TV personality added that he thought Josh was doing well before his untimely passing.
“He had a DUI conviction about 12 or 13 years ago that he finally got off his record. He’d got himself a car. He was working,” said Rosbach. “We thought we might have hit a milestone.”
Lee went on to note how he and his family (the captain has four other children) aren't alone; thousands of people are lost to drug addiction every year.
He plans to help fight the opioid epidemic, but is still searching for the right opportunity:
“I don’t want to start something, then not be able to finish it," Rosbach says.
Joshua had been off painkillers and heroin for about six months when he died.
Medical examiners told the family that Josh had relapsed and bought pills that appeared to be prescription opioids ... but were in fact counterfeits, laced with five different substances including cocaine, heroin and the incredibly powerful, lethal drug Fentanyl.
“There’s a lot of guilt that comes with something like this. What if I’d gone over to his house sooner? What if I’d done this? What if I’d done that? I should have made his life easier,” Lee said.
“So you carry around a tremendous amount of guilt. And then you have to stop and realize that you can’t prevent the inevitable.”
We send our very best wishes to Lee Rosbach and his loved ones.
Very sad news today out of the reality television universe:
Cassandra Waldon, a memorable CBS personality who became the first-ever Big Brother contestant to enter the house on the U.S. version of this program, has been killed.
She was 56 years old.
According to TMZ, the outlet that broke this sad piece of news, Waldon passed away on September 25 from injuries related to a car accident in Rome.
A source at the United Nations -- where Cassandra worked -- tells the celebrity gossip website that the ex-reality star struck by a vehicle about two months ago, suffering a head injury in the process.
Tragically, she never regained consciousness before her death.
The standout former Big Brother contestant is now being remembered and mourned by those who knew who well.
And those who remember her run way back in the day.
Host Julie Chen, for instance, wrote the following on Instagram:
"Thank you for bringing your intelligence, warmth and wisdom to the Big Brother house Season 1."
In the end, Weldon finished sixth out of 10 houseguests. In the history of the U.S. version of Big Brother, no contestant who entered the home first has ever come out on top.
The same actually holds true for the Canadian version.
Prior to her passing, Weldon worked at the UN as its Director of Communications for the International Fund for Agricultural Development.
She was living and working in Rome when the crash took place.
Fans of Big Brother are also speaking out on social media about this tragedy.
"Sad news, Cassandra Waldon of Big Brother 1 passed away last month," one fan wrote, adding:
"She worked at the U.N. at the time she was on the show, and was well-liked by her roomies and viewers alike."
"Such a shame... She was my favorite contestant on season one. She was so thoughtful and smart."
Added Chen in her tribute:
"Your light will continue to shine in this world because of the way you lived your life: with class and grace... You are in my thoughts and in my prayers. May God Bless your soul."
TMZ reports that told her funeral will be held next weekend in her home state of Maryland.
May she rest in peace.
I don't know if he's sober or not. I don't know who the f-ck is lying at this point, and I'm very scared.
So uttered Angelina on Jersey Shore: Family Vacation this week, quoting Jen Harley and summing up an episode that featured Jen Harley sending her disturbing text messages about Ronnie in a preview of an explosive fight to come.
Buckle up and strap in, everybody.
The group was still in Las Vegas to celebrate the start of Vinny Guadagnino's month-long Chippendales residency on this installment, as Ronnie, Vinny, Pauly D, Deena Cortese and Angelina Pivarnick went to brunch.
Ronnie, however, was clearly distracted.
When he left the table at one point, he also left his phone behind -- and just as his friends pondered a peak through it, Angelina's phone dinged twice.
"Oh, shit. Jen messaged me," she said, later telling the camera: "All of a sudden, my phone is blowing up. And it's Jen. And those text messages are f-cking insane."
Reading from her phone, she said recounting the following in her confessional:
"'Ron went to Cabo, went MIA, texting me crazy shit all hours of the night, stayed longer, blocked me from everything. He just went completely whack.
"Like, what is really going on right now? I don't know if he's sober or not. I don't know who the f-ck is lying at this point, and I'm very scared."
At the brunch table, Pauly asked Angelina if everything was okay.
She shrugged, said no and let out an "Oh. My. God," before Ronnie reappeared.
"Shhh, shhh, here he comes," Vinny warned.
Pauly had no idea what was going on and vented to the camera:
"To me, it's weird that Ron's baby mama, Jen, is reaching out to our family, like, reaching out to our friends instead of reaching out just to him.
"And he can't be honest with us, so she's going around our back and talking to the girls. Sometimes I just wish Ronnie would be honest with us about what's going on."
When the friends left for the pool a short time later, Ronnie remained preoccupied with his phone.
He was texting away like a 14-year old girl before prom.
"I don't know what's going on with Ron," Jenni later told the camera, adding:
"Group chat was informing me that Ron was literally on his phone all day yesterday. Like, it's uncomfortable! If you're gonna be with the roommates, engage. Like, that annoys me!"
To emphasize Ronnie's obsession with his phone, MTV even gave us a look at producers prodding him to look up from texting for just a few minutes to film a confessional.
He did eventually open up, but it was to complain about all the negative attention he receives.
"All people do is talk about me in this house," Ronnie said to the camera. "I take a shit, they talk about it. I jerk off, they talk about it. That's all they do is talk about it."
We're not certain if that is true.
But you keep getting back together with someone who berates you and beats you, Ron, and, yeah, people are gonna talk.
As for what the heck was going on this week between Jen and Ronnie? Everyone spent the bulk of the episode trying to figure it out.
After learning Harley had been texting Angelina, JWoww ordered her pal to hand over her phone.
"Jen messaged me on Instagram, telling me that Ronnie has been missing for a week, she doesn't know where he is, she hasn't spoken to him for a week," Angelina explained in a confessional.
"So Jenni grabbed my phone. I'm always Team Ron, I really am. But at this point, I don't even know what to do. I thought that Jenni and Ron are closer than that. I didn't know that she would do this."
To wrap up the intense installment, Pauly held Angelina back as Jenni scrolled through the messages.
"Yeah, they're fighting," she astutely concluded the second Ronnie walked back into their bungalow.
"What'd I miss?" he asked as MTV cut to black.
Just because you go on a reality TV show to find love, it doesn't mean you will.
The Bachelor and its many spinoffs have been on the air for over seventeen years.
It may have seemed like these Bachelor Nation stars found love on one of the ABC shows, but they're with someone different today.
Have a look below.
