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.

It's been a rough few weeks for Kailyn Lowry.
Kailyn just got an adorable new pup for the family, but fans are already jumping down her throat about it.
On August 28, Kailyn saddened fans on social media with the news that her beloved Rottweiler Bear had died after facing serious health issues.
"I think this is by far the worst week I've had in a long time," Kailyn tweeted during the ordeal.
The Teen Mom 2 star's posts included a loving tribute that showed what a central part of the family Bear had been.
But it didn't take long for Kailyn to find love again.
Just over a week later, Kail returned to the web to debut the newest addition to her family, a Cane Corso named Karma.
Kailyn chose to introduce the pup in a tweet with a series of cute pics and the simple caption, "Meet Karma."
It was clear Kailyn was super excited about to add Karma to the family.
She even went all out with a fake gender reveal, including a pink dog bed, blanket and balloons.
Look, it's not any dumber than when we do it for people.
Puppies don't appreciate the difference between blue and pink any more or less than human babies.
The point is, Karma's a girl, and she has a lot of pink stuff because Kailyn threw her a cute little party.
But fans just couldn't let Kailyn have this one nice thing.
Twitter users immediately came for the 27-year-old and her little dog too, lambasting every detail they could find a problem with.
Followers took issue with where Kailyn got the dog, when she got it, and most outrageously, even the shape of Karma's ears!
As is plainly visible in the phots, Karma's ears are cropped.
The Cane Corso naturally has longer ears that flop over, but the breed often has its ears cut into a smaller, upright shape.
Many fans see this as a cruel and unnatural alteration to a non-consenting animal, and they definitely let their voices be heard.
"Please tell me you didn't clip his ears," wrote one user, who clearly missed the gender reveal.
"Wtf is wrong with you," they continued, "I'm done."
We recommend knowing at least a bit of what you're talking about before declaring you're "done" with an argument you started, but hey whatever.
Plenty of others had equally strong opinions about the practice.
"That poor baby's ears," observed another user in the comments thread
"SMFH. Anyone who crops their dogs ears should have it done to them," they decreed.
But some other users were in Kail's corner this time, or at the very least were advocates of canine ear clipping.
"Do your research on the ear cropping of this breed," wrote one user who came to Kail's defense.
Another commenter did just that, and even had the good sense to post their findings in the thread.
A cursory google search turns informs that for the Cane Corso specifically, cropped ears are in the best interest of the dog's health and safety.
"Ok I was going to slam you for the ear cropping," wrote the user who looked it up.
"But researched it first, and I'll be damned," they concluded, adding an emoji of a lady shrugging.
Take notes, Internet users. We should all aspire to be like this commenter.
If you have an opinion, do a bit of research before you present it to the world.
Of course, other users disputed this information, and pointed out that breeders are gradually leaving behind the practice of ear cropping, even in breeds where it's traditional.
And for the record, we can totally understand why so many are opposed to the process.
It does change the dog's appearance, and the animal can't give its permission.
Just like human circumcision, there's a hot debate as to weather it's necessary for health and hygiene, or just mutilation for the sake of tradition.
For her part, Kailyn Lowry is used to getting called out online.
And she's used to defending herself too
Kail wants us to know she didn't make the call on this issue. Karma came into her life with ears already clipped.
"Either way," she wrote, "the ears were cropped before I got her, so that was out of my control."
Of course, that wasn't enough for some fans, who pointed out that by purchasing a dog with it's ears cropped, Kailyn is still supporting the practice.
"Beautiful dog, and I have no doubt you'll treat it well," replied one commenter, "but buying a dog with its ears cropped should be illegal."
We're not sure we'd go that far. If it's truly bad for the dog, maybe the practice should be illegal.
But we'd hate to see a pup miss out on a good home just because its missing a few tiny pieces.
Fortunately, that's not an issue for Karma, who looks like she settling in beautifully to her new home.
The new pooch has been a hit with Kail's kids and even her other dog, a french bulldog named Gizmo.
And naturally, plenty of followers had a problem with that too, finding it callous that Kailyn got a new dog only a week after losing her last one.
But Kailyn's snappy online response to the haters asserts that Karma "is an addition, not a replacement."
Other fans argued over weather or not the Cane Corso is an appropriate breed to be around young children.
Still others blasted Kail for buying anything from a breeder when there are so many dogs that need to be rescued from shelters.
Unfortunately, pretty much every choice is the wrong one when you live under the microscope like Kailyn does.
But we're glad that even in these rocky times, Kailyn's family has a new source of joy in Karma.
And for Karma, we're honestly just glad she didn't end up as Janelle Evans' new family pet.
Very sad news today out of the reality television universe:
Chris March, a popular contestant who competed on Season 4 of Project Runway, died on Thursday of a heart attack.
He was 56 years old.
Bravo personality and producer Andy Cohen mourned the loss of March in a heartfelt Instagram post, which read a follows:
"This is how I'm going to remember Chris March, dressed as Lisa Vanderpump as I wear a Giggy costume he made for one of our first Halloween specials.
Chris was a finalist on Season 4 of Project Runway.
He designed for everyone from Beyoncé, Gaga, Madonna, Meryl, Prince and many legendary downtown drag queens (And Sonja Morgan!).
He had a big booming laugh; he was a joy and delight. #RIP.
According to TMZ, which broke this tragic news, March had been in and out of the hospital for the past year or so.
He had been battling some pretty serious health problems -- and yet the fatal heart attack came as a surprise to his doctors and loved ones. He was even designing dresses all the way up until the end.
Along with making it to the finals on Season 4, March also appeared on Project Runway All Stars and had his own show on Bravo called "Mad Fashion."
Moreover, he made cameos on The Real Housewives of New York City, helping find elaborate costumes for Sonja Morgan.
In 2017, March suffered an almost-fatal fall in his apartment that left him in a coma for the subsequent two months.
A GoFundMe was launched on the reality star's behalf to help offset the monetary challenges of his ongoing medical treatments.
After this hospitalization, March entered a nursing facility.
"I came close to death many times -- they called my family and they were told if they wanted to say goodbye to come right away," he said of the major mishap.
Throughout his impressive career, March designed for Madonna, Lady Gaga, Jennifer Coolidge, Beyonce and Meryl Streep.
He was responsible for the latter's 2010 Golden Globe and Oscars ensembles.
Just a few months ago, March shared an update on his health, revealing he had "run into several setbacks in my recovery."
As he described on the GoFundMe:
"I am also in need of leg braces, specialized physical therapy, a hearing aid, and a new living arrangement.
"Where I am now is unbearable and makes me anxious and depressed every day. I have considered suicide many times. I have tried my best to make strides."
March's supporters raised nearly $60,000 of his $100,000 goal after his accident.
We send our condolences to Chris March's friends, family members and loved ones.
May he rest in peace.
It was so on between Kelly Dodd and Vicki Gunvalson on Tuesday's episode of The Real Housewives of Orange County.
We get it, we say the same damn thing every week about these two women, but things got considerably worse between them this week.
If you watch The Real Housewives of Orange County online, then you know they've been locking horns for quite some time.
But last week, we heard something about Kelly getting close to people on a "train," or something.
That little nugget of information was courtesy of Vicki aka the woman who is fighting tooth and nail to regain her housewife status.
Tamra Judge was the one to reveal to the audience what the heck was going on, and we are in shock.
She said that pulling a train means having sex with more than one person, one right after the other.
"It's just a rumor that [Vicki] heard," Tamra said. "She said, 'Eight guys pulled a train on Kelly.'"
Even though Shannon Beador heard about the rumor, she wanted the ladies to shut it down and remain quiet about it.
"I heard the train rumor when Vicki heard it, and my mouth's been shut ever since I did. This is not okay," Shannon said, expounding as follows:
"To put a notion out there that a woman would have sex with multiple men in front of others is disgusting, and I will have no part of that rumor."
The ladies started talking about it, and Gina Kirchenheiter wanted them to stop because of how damaging it would be to Kelly.
However, Braunwyn Windham-Burke, Kelly's longtime friend, wasted no time in calling her up about it.
"This is absolutely ludicrous! I've never even done a threesome, let alone a train," Kelly complained to the camera.
Kelly and Gina visited Braunwyn to chat about the whole thing, and Kelly was ready to flip out.
She called Vicki "dangerous" and a "liar," saying that she "lied about cancer, the worst thing that you could possibly lie about."
Gina felt for Kelly, but she wanted her to stop hurling insults back at Vicki because it was not getting either of them anywhere.
Kelly claimed that she would not speak about Vicki again, but given what's been happening on social media of late, she did not take that seriously.
Away from the Kelly-Vicki drama, Gina was still struggling to come to terms with her divorce.
She met up with Tamra and said that one of her children was having developmental issues.
More concerning was that her soon-to-be-ex-husband Matt was not doing much to help aside from attending the doctor.
Tamra wondered why a man would want to stay in another state from his children, and Gina said she was trying to get him to move before she found out he was still together with the woman he cheated on her with.
The conversation then turned to Emily Simpson, dragging Shannon after the previous reunion.
The tweet from Emily at the time read, "@ShannonBeador, you may have lost 40 pounds of fat, but you definitely didn't lose 40 pounds of jealous #rhoc #getoveryourself #frozenfishisriveting."
"Shannon called me all freaked out, totally upset," Tamra told Gina.
"Emily was like blasting her on social media! She gets upset, like so upset ... It's crazy. Shannon didn't even say anything bad. It was hearsay that was repeated."
Tamra then complained that Emily was clearly "insecure." But Tamra had no clue that Emily was going through a tough time at home.
The tweet came up later in the episode when Shannon asked about it during a day trip to Beverly Hills. Emily did apologize, and Shannon let it slide ... for now.
Emily wanted to talk about what happened with Kelly -- and that's when Kelly stood up and yelled the following:
"I don't really give a f--k, okay? Why are you even bringing it up?! It's ridiculous. You guys can go fuck off. All of you."
Tamra was mad that Braunwyn told Kelly the truth, but she didn't have time to process it before she had to go find Kelly.
"This is like obnoxious that everybody's coming at me like this. There is no basis!" Kelly yelled at Tamra, before saying her daughter had heard the rumor already.
Kelly returned to the table but refused to believe anyone was genuinely looking out for her.
She yelled expletives at Gina.
It was wild.

Bravo has lost yet another long-time star.
In this case, it may also be the best known and most successful of them all.
Bethenny Frankel confirmed to Variety this afternoon that she won't be returning to The Real Housewives of New York City.
“I have decided to leave the Housewives franchise to explore my next chapter,” Frankel said in this statement to Variety on Wednesday, adding in further detail:
“It’s time to move on and focus on my daughter, my philanthropy and my production partnership with Mark Burnett, producing and starring in shows which represent a shift in the conversation for women,” said Frankel.
The very rich entrepreneur is mom to nine-year-old daughter Bryn, whom she shares with ex Jason Hoppy.
She dealt with a brush with death this past season on the series and is still dealing with the passing of her serious ex-boyfriend.
Continued to veteran eality star:
“With the changes in modern culture, I want to highlight the strength, confidence and unstoppable power that women have.
"My experience at Bravo has been an incredibly magical ride.
"I am so grateful to them for highlighting my entrepreneurialism and allowing me to pave the way for many women to achieve their goals. I am excited for my future.
"The best is yet to come.”
No one from Bravo has yet commented on this unexpected departure.
An insider tells Us Weekly, meanwhile, that there's nothing more to this move than meets the eye or anything.
Everything Frankel is saying above really does explain her decision to walk away.
“She wants to focus on being a mom to Bryn,” this source says. “She’s also got other business things going on and doesn’t need the RHONY paycheck.
Frankel was an original cast member on The Real Housewives of New York City when it debuted in 2008.
She did leave during season 3, but returned five years later for season 7 -- and has stuck around since then, always as a prominent star.
Following news of Frankel’s exit, Ramona Singer -- who started on the program with Frankel and has never missed a season of the franchise -- told People Magazine that she “respects the fact that Bethenny has decided to go on with other endeavors," adding:
"Bethenny found love in her life, and it’s so fantastic that she’ll be taking the time to grow that relationship away from the cameras and to explore other business opportunities."
She then took a slight dig at Bethenny.
"I’m only disappointed that Bethenny did not inform her costars that she’s not coming back to the show,” Singer added.
“When she left in season 4, we found out through the press she was doing her spinoff, Bethenny Getting Married.
"She was upset we never congratulated her, but we were upset she never told us! And that’s how we feel now.
"There is a camaraderie among us as a cast. Love us, hate us, not like us — we are a team. To hear this from the press and not through her is upsetting."
Frankel joins a growing list of other established stars who have recently left Bravo.
Lisa Vanderpump has left The Real Housewives of Orange County, while Vicki Gunvalson has been demoted from the same franchise.
Now you tell us: Will you miss Bethenny Frankel?
For the second consecutive night, Bachelor in Paradise featured a cast member having to choose between two people.
On Monday evening, we witnessed Hannah thankfully choosing Dylan over Blake.
And then 24 hours later, it was time for Demi Burnett to decide if she wanted to date Derek or Kristian. (Yes, that second person is a woman!)
“I don’t want to lose anyone,” Demi said to Chris Harrision in regard to her fellow Paradise player and the girlfriend back at she she had started to get serious with, adding:
“One of them deserves to have all of me -- but I’m scared that I’m not going to make the right choice."
Derek tried hard to understand.
But he also expressed hurt that Demi couldn't just pick him, move on and simply find out what could be between the duo.
“Demi confirmed that she still has these feelings for somebody else and I don’t care if that’s a man or a woman,” he said. “It’s just hard to know that there is another person there.”
Elsewhere, everyone else on the beach was basically coupled up. There was:
- Tayshia Adams and John Paul Jones.
- Nicole Lopez-Alvar and Clay Harbor.
- Caelynn Miller-Keyes and Dean Unglert.
- Katie Morton and Chris Bukowski.
- Hannah Godwin and Dylan Barbour.
The only four quote-unquote single contestant remaining were Kristina Schulman, Blake Horstmann and new arrive Caitlin Clemmens from Colton Underwood‘s season of The Bachelor.
EVEN MORE BLAKE DRAMA
Caitlin was still interested in Blake after their date, for some reason... but was starting to feel like Kristina -- who had saved Blake at the last rose ceremony -- might get in the way of their relationship.
“I like Blake. I’m still curious about him. I definitely want to show him that I’m still super interested,” she explained.
“I just think it will be very difficult for me to progress anywhere with him with Kristina hanging around.”
As the evening went on, and as Kristina alleged she didn't actually have romantic feelings for Blake, Caitlin got more and more worked up, trashing Kristina “awful,” “atrocious” and “f—ing manipulative.”
“Kristina is like the mosquitoes here,” she said. “She’s just sucking the life out of everyone. And tonight we’re going to squish the mosquito.”
Caitlin tried to talk to Kristina about this weird love triangle, but the two didn't get anywhere.
“I don’t know how Kristina can sit there and be happy with herself at the end of all of this, knowing that she’s doing this to her friends,” Caitlin said.
Jen Saviano from Paradise in Paradise Season 3 then arrived, eventually picking Chris for her date.
For his part, Chris was hoping for some "clarity" from this outing because it had been clicking with Katie.
Did he get it? All we can say for certain is that he got to make out with Jen in the hot tub.
When the date was over, Chris admitted to Katie that he wasn’t “completely clear” and still had some “doubts” about their relationship, much to her chagrin.
OKAY, WHAT DID DEMI DECIDE?!?
In a historic movie, Kristian was flown down to Mexico as the first-ever non-Bachelor franchise alum to take part in the show.
Demi was stunned to see her, but also thrilled. She gave her lover a tear-filled hug.
“I came all the way down here to pursue and show Demi my level of commitment,” Kristian explained. “I have a lot of hope and a lot of excitement.”
And even though Demi confessed to having a connection with Derek, she also told Kristian that her arrival made her decision very easy.
“The second that I saw you, I knew -- it’s you,” she said. “It’s always been you. I want to be with you.”
As we said, this part was easy. Telling Derek? That was hard.
“I think that you are super amazing and you’re the best dude on this beach, hands down. I’m so lucky that I met you and I’m really glad that you were here,” she said, adding in their emotional exchange:
“But [Kristian] is here now and I wanted her here so I could get some clarity.
"When I saw her, I knew it was her.
"That’s just where my heart is and this is going to suck for you and this isn’t fair, at all, but she’s going to stay here and I’m going to pursue my relationship with her.”
Derek processed the news as best he could, but also choked back tears upon saying:
“It’s really hard. To go from kissing you to this, I don’t know how to feel.”
From there, Derek, Kristian and Demi all sat down to have a mature conversation.
Yes, a mature conversation on Bachelor in Paradise!
“I don’t think that it helped me to meet Kristian, but I wanted to do that because I thought it would help Demi,” Derek said later. “I do just want Demi to be happy.”
We concluded with Kristian meeting other cast members and hearing the following from Demi:
“Being with Derek, the more I was with him, the more I thought about you. And I don’t want to run from it anymore. I want to risk it because I will do whatever I need to do to make sure that I’m with you...
“I want to commit to you. And I’ve never wanted to commit to someone like this before.”
Reality TV may help its stars earn a pretty penny, but it doesn't make their lives any less scandalous.
The Hollywood Gossip has rounded up some of the biggest scandals to rock reality TV. Seriously, these are huge -- and yet not all are that surprising.
Know what we mean? Just think of the kind of person it takes to actually go on reality television, right?
Scroll down to read through each one...
1. Chrisley Most Definitely Does NOT Know Best
2. TLC Swings the Axe on Here Comes Honey Boo Boo
3. June Shannon Makes the Same Mistakes All Over Again
4. Big Brother 15's Racism
5. Jon & Kate Plus Lots of H8
6. Abby Lee Miller Dances Her Way Behind Bars
That sure got ugly in a hurry.
On Tuesday night's intense episode of Bachelor in Paradise, two contestants got into a legitimate fight -- and here's the truly shocking part...
... neither of these contestants was Blake.
Indeed, the polarizing sex fiend who has been at the center of most Season 6 installments to date mostly sat this one out last night.
Hence why his face was left without a scratch on it at the end of the two hours.
The same can't be said for Jordan Kimball and Christian Estrada.
How did this all begin? With Christian not wasting any time asking out Nicole Lopez-Alvar, as all viewers witnessed the instant chemisty between these two.
What about Clay Harbor, who was concerned that the only woman in which he interested in was slipping away?
Nicole believed Clay to be overly passive... yet he earned an opportunity to show his slightly more assertive side when Christian attempted to steal Nicole again after their date.
The guys strangely held hands as they argued over who she should get to spend time with her, only for Nicole to eventually choose Clay, who admitted to being “jittery” after this confrontation.
Got it? Following along so far?
Okay then... it's now time to talk about Jordan.
He already had beef with Christian prior to Bachelor for Paradise.
And then Christian set up a piñata for Nicole during the cocktail party and, after Christian told Clay to go away, Jordan felt an urge to stand up for his friend.
Therefore, he tried to take down the piñata, resulting in an actual fight between him and Christian.
"Don't touch my pinata," said Christian, who had only just been trying to convince Nicole he's a sweet guy.
He then grabbed Jordan, and Jordan grabbed him, and then that's all we got because ABC got a "to be continued" in order to tease the fallout that will air next week.
Elsewhere, Dylan Barbour struggled to comprehend why Hannah Godwin was willing to give Blake Horstmann a chance in any way, shape or form.
He pressed her about her interest in this loser -- and she finally divulged that Blake visited her in Alabama a week before Paradise.
What the heck is up with this guy and all his previous connections to the females on the island?!?
He and Hannah even kissed during the pre-show meetup, as Dylan expressed pain over the fact that Hannah hid this information from him.
Tayshia Adams, meanwhile, confronted Hannah for withholding the Blake hangout from her, considering Blake Horstmann took her on a date during week one of Season 6.
Adams felt blindsided, which was the same feeling she and Hannah both experienced during Colton Underwood’s season.
Hannah did not really appreciate the candid conversation, saying that Blake’s visit was “private” and she didn’t share the story out of respect for him.
(Ummm... talk about IRONIC, huh?!?)
Hannah thought the show was a better outlet to figure out their connection and later claimed Tayshia “mean girled” her.
Also on avery busy episode:
Dean Unglert caught Caelynn Miller-Keyes’ eye upon his arrival.
However, she grew irritated upon accusing Kristina Schulman of “slut-shaming me across this entire beach.”
Dean, who wanted to make up for his earlier sins, didn’t seem to mind her tears, asking her on a date despite the breakdown. Or maybe because of it.
He and Caelynn ended up making out in the pool.
Finally, Demi Burnett and Derek Peth seemed like the only strong, solid couple in all of Paradise.... but she was secretly conflicted because of the woman she had been dating in Los Angeles before the show.
Yes, we said woman.
Burnett missed her and still thought about her. Like, a lot.
She later came out as sexually fluid to several people, but hesitated to tell Derek because she didn’t want the revelation to ruin their connection.
In the end, though, she opened up and was relieved by his accepting reaction.
In June the world was introduced to 90 Day Fiance: Before the 90 Days couple Rebecca and Zied in TLC's teaser trailer.
The pair raised eyebrows for a handful of reasons, one of which is that Rebecca was already married to someone else.
Now the series has finally premiered, and while we've got a way to go before we learn Rebecca's fate, we're here to tell you at least one of her relationships is officially over.
When Zied -- and 90 Day fans -- met Rebecca, she was sitting on a pretty big secret.
Not only had Rebecca been married three times, she was still married to her third husband.
"I want the engagement, I want the wedding, I want our life to start," Rebecca said in the premier.
"But," she said, "I just have left a lot of things out about my past."
"I'm keeping a secret from Zied," the 47-year-old admitted, referring of course to her marital status.
"I have no idea what Zied is going to do when he finds out," Rebecca worried during her confessional.
"He could absolutely end this relationship," she reasoned.
But as we reported, and as Rebecca goes on to explain, the whole situation isn't quite as shady as it seems.
In truth, Rebecca was only married in the legal sense.
Not that that's a small detail -- the legal recognition is arguably the whole point of getting married, especially on 90 Day Fiance.
But Rebecca was never two-timing Zied; she was separated from her husband, but hadn't finalized her divorce.
"As of right now, I'm not technically divorced from my ex," said Rebecca in the confessional.
She went on to explain that she "just kept putting it off" emotionally, because the relationship ended so badly.
Sometimes, relationships end so badly that you can't bare to face your ex under any circumstances.
We could understand how that would interfere with the divorce process, which often requires more painful face time with an ex.
Unfortunately it's something that needs to be dealt with before working up to a new marriage.
Now, it looks like Rebecca has finally cleared away the old baggage and paved the way for new suitors like Zied.
According to court documents recently obtained by In Touch, Rebecca's divorce was finalized on July 9.
Like Zied, Rebecca's ex-husband was from overseas.
Rebecca and her Moroccan ex originally married in 2013, but were separated in January of 2018.
It would be over a year before she actually filed for divorce in May of 2019, well after meeting Zied.
But hey, better late than never, right?
All things considered, the turn-around on that divorce was pretty quick, once Rebecca actually filed for it.
Sometimes these things get messy, and drag on for months to years in court.
The first episode shows Rebecca beginning the process, heading to court to file the paperwork.
But since the divorce wasn't finalized until last month, it likely won't be covered on this season of 90 Day Fiance: Before the 90 Days.
It's a shame we won't get to see if the divorce saves Rebecca and Zied's relationship on screen any time soon.
But judging from the comments made by her (alleged) son on reddit in June, Rebecca and Zied survived the ordeal and still love each other very much.
So, we can't say for sure if Rebecca is single, but at least we all know she's not married.
We'd like to congratulate Rebecca on her un-nuptuals, and wish her the best of luck with her new beau.
Tune into 90 Day Fiance: Before the 90 Days on TLC to catch more of Rebecca and Zied.
Vicki Gunvalson is outta there!
If that wasn't made clear by the complete and utter lack of the OG of the OC on the premiere of The Real Housewives of Orange County, then we don't know what will.
But Did Gunvalson's former co-stars manage to bring the drama in her absence?
Of course. That's why Orange County is still the crown jewel in this tired Bravo franchise.
We finally got some insight into Gina Kirschenheiter's January 31 arrest for driving under the influence -- and it was wild.
"The night of the DUI, I went to a local mom event," Gina admitted to the audience.
"I was there shopping for leggings and drinking wine, and I wanted to go home," she added of the scary night.
"I got in the car -- I should never have driven -- I got pulled over. And it's my worst defining moment. Ever."
But Gina did make strides in her personal life between seasons. If you watch The Real Housewives of Orange County online, you know that she previously struggled to tell her children about her divorce.
Gina was happy that she was in her new home with the three kids, and that they all knew about the divorce.
However, she was "so bummed that I made such a stupid fricken decision to like get in the damn car and drive that night."
"I know I disappointed you," she said to her dad in a Facetime call.
"I just hope that the kids don't think bad of me, too."
Her Dad told her she's "the best mom" and that he knows and that her kids love her "to death."
Gina was struggling in the aftermath. That much was clear, and the DUI arrest hung over the premiere like a dark cloud.
Gina later met up with Emily Simpson and told her that she thought she was fine to drive. She said that when she was pulled over, she thought it was going to be a ticket she was getting.
"I thought I was just gonna get a ticket," she explained. "But my friend in the passenger seat had a roadie. That's what it was. I wasn't drinking it!"
"So he saw that?" Emily asked, prompting Gina to respond with, "Yeah, and then he just asked me to get out of the car. I did all the tests, and then he gave me the breathalyzer, and it wasn't registering, and he arrested me."
"The cells are clear walls, and the first thing that I see when I walk in is this man with his hands cuffed behind his back, smashing his face against the clear glass. Like, over and over and over again. There's like blood," she said in a confessional.
"I don't know if I'm gonna be in a cell with like other crazy men like that. Like, you just don't know!"
Gina burst into tears when Emily asked about how her parents took the surprising news, admitting that it was "the worst part" of the whole thing.
Matt, her estranged husband, however, was very supportive after being the first person to learn the truth about it.
"He has been really supportive," she continued.
Like we said, it was wild!
Elsewhere, Kelly Dodd had a new man in Dr. Brian Reagan, and she seemed super happy.
Brian "works at the place where I got my boobies done," Kelly admitted without thinking about it.
Kelly decided to go on a night on the town with Shannon Beador. Beador looked fabulous as she geared up to find a new man.
But there was still talk of Gina's DUI.
"Wait, wait, wait, wait. What about Gina and the DUI?" said a stunned Kelly.
"The stupidest thing that could happen to anyone is getting a DUI. In today's world," Shannon said. "Are you kidding me?!" Kelly agreed.
"I'm not perfect -- I've made plenty of mistakes -- but DUIs are very serious," Kelly said. "She's a hot mess right now."
Shannon was even madder because she had numerous scuffles with Gina in the past.
"This is the girl who had the audacity to use the word 'self-medicate,' which has cost me tens of thousands of dollars to defend myself in the court system. Really, Gina?" she yelled at Kelly.
Looks like that feud is back and burning brighter than ever.
As for Tamra Judge, she and Eddie were happier than ever in their new home, but Tamra had to deal with two warring sons.
Tamra admitted that she wanted Ryan and Spencer to resolve their political differences.
A family member chimed in, wondering what the eff was going on.
"Ryan's a fanatic Trump supporter, and Spencer's the total opposite," said Tamra.
"I don't care," Ryan said in response. "There's nothing wrong with loving America."
"I don't mind loving America, but you said you were gonna punch him in the face," Tamra shot back.
"He's been talking to me the way he talks to me," Ryan said, adding that Spencer had called him "a racist."
"Are you?" Tamra wondered, prompting Ryan to say, "No."
"Listen, I'm not into politics..." Tamra said, but Ryan cut her off.
"You should be!" he said sternly. "You wanna watch some Fox News with me? We can watch some Fox News."
"What about CNN?" Tamra asked.
"Do not say those words to me," he mumbled.
Tamra tried to get the brothers to sort things out, once again, but it failed.
"I don't hate the kid, he just crossed the line. He wasn't ready for the repercussion," Ryan said.
"Am I gonna go kick his ass? No. I'm not stressed about it, but you can talk to him about that."
Ryan admitted in a confessional that his brother "got offended because I was for building the wall, and just because I said that, he thought that I was racist. Half my family's Mexican! I have other family that's Black. Like, it just doesn't make sense."
Tamra also expounded in a confessional about the whole thing.
"Spencer and Ryan were raised differently. Ryan was in daycare half the time while I was working two jobs. The lights were turned off most of the time."
"Birthday parties were, 'Let's go to Chuck E. Cheese!' But now, Ryan sees all the fancy things in life that Spencer has, and I think there might be a little bit of jealousy between the two of them. And I think Ryan's the one that's gotta maybe come around."
RHOC airs Tuesdays on Bravo.
It's safe to say that Shannon Beador's bitter divorce was a miserable time for her -- just as the preceeding years were their own kind of hell.
These days, she's been focusing on herself -- and the astounding results speak for themselves.
In this new The Real Housewives of Orange County clip, Shannon talks about life after losing a whopping 40 pounds.
In this new clip, Shannon Beador shows up to work out with her 17-year-old daughter, Sophie, and 14-year-old twins Adeline and Stella.
"I'm honestly really nervous," Sophie confesses to her mother. "Because I haven't worked out in so long."
Working out on camera is never an ideal situation, but it must be especially nervewracking if you're out of practice.
"Ladies and gentlemen," Shannon tells the confessional camera. "Introducing the new Shannon Storms Beador!"
"I've lost 40 pounds," she announces. "And I've gained a lot of fun!"
"Fun Shannon, BAM, is back," Shannon proclaims with glee.
She has lost a significant amount of weight through a lot of hard work.
(The secret to her weight loss is, as it always is, being rich enough to hire a personal trainer and to have the time to work out)
"I’m proud of myself, darn it!" Shannon says. "It was two years of hell."
We're proud of her, too!
When Shannon says that it was two years of hell, she wasn't kidding.
The weight gain was just a symptom. The "disease" in this case was misery -- misery at the hands of her ex, David Beador.
We see multiple sad flashbacks of Shannon's body before she lost the weight.
In another clip, we see her tearfully confess to Vicky how miserable she feels that David was able to move on like he did.
"I shared 20 years with a man and the fact that he has found someone within months of leaving me is devastating," Shannon sobbed.
"The hardest work was changing the insides," Shannon explains of her dramatic body transformation.
She describes "getting to the mental place where I know I’m gonna be OK."
"And then the weight was just, kinda, a lot easier,” Shannon admits.
“At a certain point," she expresses. "it just started coming off."
As we said -- her weight gain (though not really that big of a deal) was a symptom of her abject misery.
Shannon is reaping the benefits of all of her hard work.
We don't just mean the social privilege that comes with being thin.
Regular exercise -- at almost any body type -- has a number of benefits.
One of them is a major boost to your libido and sex drive.
We have to wonder -- is that why Shannon has reportedly been kissing dudes left and right?
Good for her.
Another charming part of this clip, of course, is the presence of Shannon's daughters.
For example, Stella shows off her rock-hard arm muscles, to Shannon's astonishment.
Stella is happy to credit her teenage metabolism for her impressive figure.
Sophie explains that she wants to start working out with one of her friends.
Adeline, in the meantime, has zero interest in working out. She likes her slender figure and does not want to build muscle mass.
There were tears and there were tantrums.
There was rampant sexism and rampant sex... in a windmill.
There were 30 suitors and then there were three and then, heading into Tuesday night's The Bachelorette finale, there were two.
But who was the final one left standing?
Was it Tyler? Was it Jed? Was it, in the very end, neither of these aspiring husbands?
Let's get to the recap, shall we?!?
“I am conflicted in my heart,” Hannah said when she woke up in Greece to kick off the finale, shocking viewerd who figured this would be an easy choice for her and adding:
“I was hopeful that I would have clarity but today... I don’t know. I don’t want to not be 100 percent sure and then make the wrong decision.”
Just how torn was the Alabama native?
On her way to the proposal location, Hannah asked that the driver of her car pull over.
She then got out of the vehicle, started walking away -- and tripped!
From her spot on the ground, she examined her elbow and told a producer: “I really can’t do this.”
Still, she got up, dusted herself off and proceeded.
And then entered Tyler, the first man to approach Hannah with a Neil Lane engagement ring.
The contractor thought back the moment he fell in love with Hannah and gave her props for helping him transform into the man he wants to be. The man he was previously unsure he could be.
But Hannah cut Tyelr off before he could propose.'
“I am so lucky to be loved by you and to feel that,” she began.
“You have supported me, you have been so sweet and strong for me and done everything that I’ve asked and more, and loved me so much. And my life with you would be amazing. And when I told you I was falling in love with you, I mean it."
And then she dropped the heartbreaking bombshell:
"But I love someone else. I’m so sorry.”
Tyler was hurt, but also classy.
“That’s going to hurt but I’m still going to be your biggest fan rooting for you,” he told Hannah. “I wish you and Jed nothing but success. I really mean that.”
Did Hannah find success with the supposed man of her dreams?
Jed exited his car and walked up to his alleged soulmate with a guitar, telling the series lead:
“Though the other side is kind of unsure, right here is for sure and I know that I love you. And talking is hard sometimes for me so …”
Yes, he then broke into song, strumming and singing:
We always knew it’s me and you.
"I’ve been praying for this moment for a long time,” Hannah told Jed in response.
“I’ve been praying for you. You’ve supported me, you’ve loved me, you’ve challenged me, you’ve moved me and it’s made me love you so, so much. And I am in complete love with you.”
Cue the proposal!
“I don’t want to go another day of my life without you being all mine,” Jed said as he took a knee. “Hannah, will you marry me?”
YES, Hannah replied.
“She’s gonna be a Wyatt!” Jed cheered to the cameras.
Is she really, though?
We learned after this opening hour that the couple's honeymoon phase lasted two days.
“The second night after we got engaged, Jed tells me that he had been hanging out with this girl before he left to come on the show,” Hannah revealed on the finale.
“I was like, ‘When was this?’ And I remember him saying a week before the show. And I was like, ‘Okay, so you broke it off?’ He said yes, told me it was nothing. It was hard to hear, but I tried to let it go.”
Wyatt, of course, has been at the center of cheating allegations for weeks now.
Back in Los Angeles, Hannah and Jed sat down to discuss the allegations by Haley Stevens, in which she said that she and Jed were in a serious relationship while he was on The Bachelorette.
When pushed by Hannah, Wyatt said he had slept with Haley the night before he left for this ABC franchise.
He also said they spent a weekend together in Gatlinburg, Tennessee, after which she met Jed’s parents.
Then, in January, Haley threw Jed a surprise birthday party... and her parents gifted them a trip to The Bahamas.
Right before the trip, Jed learned he had been cast on The Bachelorette and, yes, he admitted to Hannah on the finale that he told Stevens he would go on the show just to promote his music.
He also told Stevens that he loved her during this vacation to The Bahamas.
Jed then actually added that arriving in Los Angeles for The Bachelorette effectively ended his relationship with Stevens -- but he NEVER TOLD HER THAT.
“To me, I ended it in my heart and not verbally,” he told Brown.
“This is obviously humiliating for me,” said Hannah, adding that members of her family were receiving messages about the controversy.
“When I look back, yeah, it was a f-cking sh-tty thing to do and I should’ve walked up and said something right then and there, and I didn’t,” he said.
“I should’ve said something at the Fantasy Suite and I didn’t. But once this started happening and I started seeing how I was feeling about you, I couldn’t think about anything else. You were it.
"The reason I held back details that I did was because I was scared that if I told you, you’d walk away from me. And that’s the most coward thing to hear, I know, but that’s just the truth. And I’m so not proud of it.”
Hannah was irate. She was bitter. But she was also sure of herself and clear-headed.
"I was being told half-truths and lies and you wanted me to have clarity and clarity means truth," she told Jed. "You got to see all of me, I didn’t get to see all of you.”
Shortly thereafter, the finale cut to the live studio segment, where Hannah confirmed she had dumped Jed's cheating rear end.
“From the bottom of my heart, I want you to know that I’m sorry. … I wasn’t the best that I could be,” Jed told Hannah on air, adding:
“I’m sorry that I took away that experience from you. I’m sorry that this has hurt your family, your friends, Bachelor Nation, everyone, my family. I’m sorry. I’m responsible for this. I will own up to it all day.”
Hannah Brown has sent Jed Wyatt packing... after accepting his proposal. Did she do the right thing? View Poll »
In response, a visibly emotional Hannah said:
“It’s so messed up. It’s just sad. But I appreciate your apology and I know that it’s hurt me a lot, but I know that this has not been easy for you and your family.
"I know critics can be hard. I have some too. What you did was not right and not good, but I did fall in love with you.
"And I know that that person’s in there, and I just hope that from this you will be honest and learn and grow into the man that I do believe that you can be for whoever in your future.”
And with that, one of the most intense and controversial seasons of The Bachelor has come to an end.
WHAT DID YOU THINK?
There was good news and bad news for Peter Weber the first part of The Bachelorette finale, which aired on Monday night.
First, the bad news:
He will not marry Hannah Brown.
During an emotional rose ceremony, the Alabama native chose to keep Tyler and Jed around as potential husbands, shedding many tears while she sent Peter packing.
After a long farewell, a grief-stricken Peter said in the limousine on his way home that he "did not see this coming," but that as much as it "hurts," he wasn't mad at Hannah.
"I'll never forget this journey, how beautiful it was in so many ways," he told the camera, adding:
"I fell in love with her, and I swear I don't regret anything. I know I have a ton of love to give, and I thought it would be Hannah."
On the plus side, Peter can maybe go back to his girlfriend now!
We did say there was good news for Peter, however, and it was this:
He and Brown came face-to-face during a live segment of the finale, sitting down opposite Chris Harrison and talking openly about... well... the last time they came with each other.
If you know what we mean.
"From my perspective, having the best time ever... then getting to the fantasy suite and waking up that next morning, for me, these last two months, I've been trying to pinpoint what it was that was the turning point for you," Peter said to Hannah during this portion of the show, adding:
"Or the point where you realized it wasn't us."
Replied The Bachelorette:
"There wasn't anything wrong and I know that's probably hard to hear, because I wish I could give you a concrete answer... I woke up that morning [of the rose ceremony], and I had to follow my heart."
And then she at least let the world know that Peter can really bring it, erection style:
"I was a little dishonest about something," Hannah began her confession. "Since it's out there... I did say there is something Peter and I did twice, it was actually four times."
She's referring, of course, to the revelation that she and Peter had sex in a windmill.
"The truth is out. I can't believe you said that. Oh, my god," responded Peter, while Harrison then dropped the line of the night:
"Somewhere, Luke P.'s head just exploded."
The finale then returned to Crete, as Hannah was joined by her father Robert, mother Susanne, and other relatives.
Yup: it was time for Jed and Tyler to be grilled by the family.
First up was Tyler, who came across to Hannah's folks as being open, honest and truly in love with their daughter.
They were especially impressed with the way Tyler handled himself in the Fantasy Suite, agreeing to spend the evening with clothes mostly on, focusing on the spiritual aspect of their relationship, rather than the physical part.
The very handsome finalist earned an enthusiastic thumbs-up from both Robert and Suzanne.
Afterward, Hannah told Tyler she was falling in love with him.
After an intimate conversation following some horseback riding -- during which Tyler laid out his idea of what a future with Hannah would look like -- she invited him up to her room.
They probably got it on there.
As for Jed?
Hannah's parents thought he was a nice enough guy ... but they were worried about how the struggling Nashville singer/songwriter would be able to juggle a marriage and a music career.
"It seemed like they were mainly concerned with the financial aspect of our relationship," Jed said of this unexpected reaction. "They don't think I'm adequate, or something."
(Maybe because you, too, have a girlfriend, Jed.)
Hannah's mom and dad then made their preference for Tyler very clear, just before their daughter got sick during a choppy boat ride with Jed.
The pain continued from there.
Hannah and Jedd spent the second half of their date engaged in a somber conversation devoted to convincing one another of their feelings for each other, despite the objections of Hannah's parents.
Does this mean they aren't meant for each other?
Or are those The Bachelorette spoilers accurate and ABC is just trying make viewers think otherwise?
The answer will be revealed on Tuesday night!
Until Hannah makes her selection, however, it's time for you to make yours:

For months and months, Jay Smith has been insinuating that he's not the only villain in his marriage.
Ashley and Jay are divorcing after his (latest) adultery, but did Ashley "do something" to him?
At the Tell All special, Jay finally aired his accusations.
Fans were teased ahead of the airing of part two of the 90 Day Fiance: Happily Ever After? Season 4 Tell all.
With the promise that Jay would finally be giving a voice to his claims about Ashley, fans wondered what he might be planning to say.
"Grab a Snickers …" Ashley told her followers.
"If I did something so bad," she wrote. "He wouldn’t have said he wanted another chance on last week’s episode."
That's a very fair point.
This Tell All special featured the most guests we've ever seen.
Guests included family members, a baby, Larissa's boyfriend, and of course, Jay's friends.
Michael and Kendall -- the guys from the barbershop -- teleconferenced in.
They explained the outrage over Jay disrespecting the place of business with his bathroom hookup.
They also said that Jay was simply too immature to be monogamous. Wow.
It was their appearance on the show that infuriated Jay ... and prompted him to walk off.
Of course, producers and a camera followed him down the cooridor.
Eventually, they sat him down and let him say his piece.
"Kendall messaged Ashley behind my back," Jay claims to the camera.
"And," he continues. "I confronted him about it."
Eventually, the producers managed to herd Jay back onto the stage.
Ashley describes how she says that Jay spoke to her after being caught cheating.
"He looked at me right in my face and said: 'Why can't you just leave me alone and let me be happy? She's my age,'" Ashley recalls.
Jay seemed to insist that this was not the case.
Then, Jay leveled an accusation of his own at Ashley.
Jay then accuses Ashley of having messaged multiple exes right in front of him.
Ashley claims that she did nothing of the sort until they were already separated.
Then Jay comes out with his big accusation.
He claims that she was messaging one ex, and that he knows this because he searched her phone.
"You guys are ridiculous," Ashley announces. "I’m done with today"
This is when she gets up and walks off of the set, asking producers to remove her mic.
Now, obviously, if it's true that Ashley was messaging an ex, that sounds like a problem.
In the context of someone whose husband is repeatedly cheating on her, though, it's understandable.
This is especially true when you take into consideration the allegations of abuse during their marriage.
Regardless of whom you believe, it is even more clear now than before that Ashley and Jay's marriage was doomed.
It was a toxic relationship. Control issues, cheating, and alleged violence should not be a part of any marriage.
It is a relief that they are no longer in a relationship. Some people should never be together.
Viewers of 90 Day Fiance: The Other Way have already gotten to meet Laura and Aladin. They're a fan-favorite couple.
That may change after fans see this clip, however.
When Laura pulls out a sex toy to help Aladin meet her needs, he takes it the wrong way -- and the results are hostile and ugly.
Laura is an older woman from Florida who has uprooted her entire life to marry a young, hunky man in Qatar. Did she make a mistake?
"Our first night together, it’s very nice," Aladin tells the cameras.
"You know," he continues. "After six months and … jiggy jiggy."
"Just take a shower and then we take rest, and then we sleep," Aladin says, trying to skip past the topic with the producers.
This is when Laura reveals: "It was done in two minutes." Oops.
"No, she say ‘come on,'” Aladin says with a laugh.
“Yeah," Laura chimes in with very different meaning. "That’s what she did say."
"Aladin and I have this amazing chemistry together," Laura then confesses to the camera.
"But for some reason, in the bedroom," she laments. "He’s just not rocking my world, like I thought he would."
Looks aren't everything.
"So just before coming to Qatar," Laura reveals. "I got something that I think could really spice things up."
We did enjoy the scenes of her shopping in a sex toy store to prepare to make this journey.
"Do you know what this is?" she asks Aladin, pulling out what is clearly a vibrator.
"Like microphone?" Aladin asks.
"Well, it’s a little bit like a microphone,” Laura says kindly. “You’ve never seen one of these before?"
"Sex toy,” Laura explains. “That’s jiggy jiggy. Really."
Unfortunately, this is when Aladin's personal demeanor changes for the worse.
"What the f--k? F--k you. Are you for real?" Aladin demands. "You know I will throw this one."
"That’s to spice things up in the bedroom," Laura tries to explain.
"Why, do you need this?" Aladin challenges her.
Some people like to have orgasms of their own, Aladin.
"In America lots of ladies have those things," Laura calmly explains.
"I am not in America,” Aladin points out.. “So don’t tell me, ‘in America, in America.’ You are not in America."
"I am just saying, honey, it is not that uncommon," she continues.
"Maybe I don’t know the mans there, they not enough for you,” Aladin says. “But here, you are okay. Don’t worry."
This is where it becomes clear that he feels like sex toys are somehow a threat to his masculinity. Ugh.
In a huff, Aladin begins to dress and says that he needs to step outside.
"Don’t be like that," Laura pleads with him.
"It’s bulls--t, honey, you know this?” Aladin whines.
“No okay, not okay," he continues. "You think it’s okay, everything is okay for you."
Aladin then continues to express his frustration to the cameras, saying: "I feel like disrespect when she give me this."
Little People, Big World has been a record-breaking success for TLC.
We mean this literally:
Last June, after a dozen years on the air, the program broke the Guinness World Record for the most episodes of a family-focused reality television show in small screen history.
Moreover, Amy Roloff recently soared past one million Instagram followers and Audrey and Jeremy (who, granted, left the series last summer) are the authors of a best-selling relationship memoir.
We say all of this to make the following point:
Little People, Big World is very popular.
Millions of people have an interest in Amy Roloff, Matt Roloff and their offspring -- and yet there had been some doubt as to whether the show would be returning for a new season at some point in the season.
Thankfully, however, we're here to put that doubt to rest.
At a book signing in Grand Rapids, Michigan on Thursday night, Amy said very clearly that Little People, Big World has been renewed for another season.
The beloved reality star did not name a premiere date or cite the number of episodes ordered by TLC, but she did hint that she's under contract for another two years and quipped:
"My retirement fund needs help!"
Amy dropped a handful of other nuggets during her chat at the event (e.g. Audrey is due on January 8; she hopes Jeremy one day takes over the farm; she isn't getting married any time soon), all of which we'll compile in an upcoming post.
But for now fans can rest assured that, despite concerns over how Matt and Amy aren't getting along ... and therefore they may not want to film together... or that executives may axe the series due to this tension...
... it is, indeed, coming back with new episodes.
Little People, Big World premiered in 2006.
It chronciles the lives of Amy and Matt Roloff and has continued to do so even after their divorce in 2016 after 27 years as husband and wife.
One of their sons, Jacob, walked away from filming about three years ago, while Audrey and Jeremy Roloff decided to move on in 2018.
But third son, Zach, and his wife Tori, along with their precious son Jackson, are still very much at the forefront of nearly every episode -- as is the relationship between Amy and Matt, ex-spouses who work together on the family farm.
"I did not want to do the show, but sometimes you have to take that step outside your box," Amy said during her Grand Rapids appearance, adding:
"I was unsure and afraid and intimidated by how other people would respond."
Clearly, however, all these years later, the risk Amy took has paid off.
Not that it's been an easy journey.
In her new book, Amy says that Matt betrayed her in their marriage with the way he acted toward his current girlfriend, Caryn Chandler, who worked previously as a manager on the farm.
There are clearly some bitter feelings here.
How will Amy's critiques of her ex-husband play out down the line? How will this public flogging affect their interactions on air?
We don't know.
We're simply psyched over the confirmation that we'll soon be able to find out!
it's time to say goodbye to 90 Day Fiance: Happily Ever After? Season 4.... by watching the two-part Tell All special.
The special looks like it's going to be nuts -- is Larissa even there? -- and this sneak peek shows that the drama starts behind the scenes.
What starts with playful banter turns into Colt demanding that Chantel "shut the f--k up." And things only get heated from there.
So, this sneak peek appears to begin before the stars even go out onto the stage to air their grievances.
Colt Johnson is sitting on a couch with Ashley Martson.
Colt is taking up about 75% of the room and that's not about his budy-size, it's about him not caring about other people.
Ashley, in the meantime, is huddled over in one tiny corner with a pillow in her lap, trying to avoid being engulfed.
They're in this ratchet backroom that's not really designed for convenient filming, and Pedro strikes up conversation with Colt.
"How you been, man? You been good?" he asks Colt. "How's Larissa? How'd this happen, man? Tell me."
"I don't know," Colt replies. "I haven't talked with her in months."
Keep in mind that this Tell All special is believed to have been filmed back in early May.
"You're probably happier, right?" Chantel suggests from her seat across from Pedro.
"Oh yeah," Colt replies sarcastically. "I'm totally happier going through a divorce. I love going through the stress and drama ..."
This is where Pedro decides to stick his foot in his mouth.
"That's the way you get happy: get divorced!" Pedro says, laughing with amusement at himself.
He's clearly just tickled at the idea that all of one's marital problems could be solved by ending the marriage.
You know who's considerably less amused? Chantel.
She rolls her eyes as everyone but Pedro seems to realize what he just said.
"Pedro," a very tired Chantel says. "Shut up."
"What?" he asks. "What's the matter? I say the truth."
Not all true things need to be spoken aloud, my dude.
"We're not getting a divorce," Chantel says firmly. "Don't even joke about it."
"Pedro please," she asks him. "Like, I cannot do this with you this early in the morning. Just stop."
"Well," Colt says. "Love is not enough. I've learned that the hard way."
"Is it? Is it not?" Chantel asks, sounding amused.
"Why?" she asks. "Is it because you love your mama more than your ex-wife?"
Pedro seems aghast at where his wife went with this.
Colt, however, only seems to get worked up as she pushed his biggest button.
"I love my mother," Colt affirms. "I take care of her. I'm the only family that she has."
"And I'll support her," he continues.
"And," Colt says. "I hope to god that one day, if one of your parents needs you, that you'll do the same."
"So," he instructs Chantel. "Please shut the f--k up."
That demand does not go over very well -- not with Chantel, and not with Pedro.
Pedro is clearly incensed that Colt had the audacity to speak to his wife in that manner.
Clearly, only Pedro's sister and mother ae allowed to openly disparage Chantel in his presence without consequences.
Chantel does insist that she can stick up for herself.
Maybe the most entertaining part of this whole confrontation is Colt just saying "ahhhhhhhhhhh" like a child.
"When you marry somebody," Chantel explains to him. "You're supposed to leave and cleave to your wife."
"Chantel, you don't know s--t," Colt says.
"So, keep your mouth shut? How about that?" he suggests.
This is when we see Chantel go off on Colt and direct him to avoid speaking to her for the rest of the Tell All.
Colt may not be the only bad dude on Season 4, but it's hard to argue that he's anything short of a villain.
Ashley Jacobs made her controversial return to Southern Charm on Wednesday.
Naturally, she caught a plenty of flak from fans who were not pleased to see her return after all the drama with Thomas Ravenel.
But co-star Landon Clements showed up to declare herself for team Ashley, and she's telling the haters to back off!
On the night of Ashley's return to the series, Landon took to Instagram in solidarity, posting a photo of herself with Ashley.
It's a lovely, simple black and white shot of the two girls smiling and just being buds.
Landon added a supportive caption to the post as well.
"I wish everyone got to meet the girl I know," Landon captions.
Simple and to the point, for sure, but it wasn't enough to sway most of the fans in the comments.
"She should've acted like the girl you know," responded one fan with a sassy, winking emoji.
Others were so offended by the show of support, they were ready to lump Landon in with Ashley
"Kathryn was right about Landon this whole time," said one commentor.
They went on to add, "And to think most of us thought Landon was the southern belle and Kathryn was the crazy one."
But Landon clapped back to set the record straight.
"Give Kathryn a google," Landon replied, adding that she was "sadly up to her old ways."
Kathryn is still in the midst of a vicious custody battle with Thomas Ravenel, who dated and left her before moving on to Ashley.
Landon and Ashley have both been creepily supportive of Thomas, who was arrested in 2018 for sexually assaulting his children's nanny.
Thomas is understandably no longer allowed on Southern Charm, so Ashley is on-hand to replace him as a drama surrogate.
She may mean well, but Landon has a habit of defending people in the most tone-deaf way possible.
She shockingly dismissed the sexual assault allegations aimed at Thomas to Us Weekly, saying, "I know in my heart that Thomas is a good person."
"Whatever happened, happened," she said, adding, "I wasn't there that night."
These remarks are textbook examples of rape culture, and illustrate a tragically common failure of some women to support one another in the face of abuse.
That said, it's encouraging to see Landon come to Ashley's defense here in this moment of social media sisterhood.
Unfortunately for Landon, some fans weren't willing to forget how Ashley had treated the other women on the show.
"She called Kathryn an egg donor," one user recalled, referencing a previous fight between Ashley and Kathryn.
"Any mother would understand how vile and vicious those words are," the commentor added.
But Landon soon responded in defense of those "vile" words.
"I think she meant her behavior reduced her to simply an egg donor when those words were said," Landon recalled about the remarks, as though that changes their meaning.
"Ashley was indeed spending more time with [Kathryn's] kids than her," Landon explained, adding "It's all just so sad."
Being loyal to your friends is a great quality. Standing up for friends when others are calling them out is often a great quality too.
But it's important to be able to see past that loyalty and tell your loved ones that what they did was wrong.
Landon's heart may be in the right place, but she needs to choose her battles a little more carefully.
If you have been following The Bachelorette Spoilers, you know that the drama between Hannah and her fiance continues even after the proposal.
But there was also no shortage of conflict on this week's hometown dates as Hannah faced off with Jed's family.
Now, Jed's sister is claiming that she and Hannah actually got along edit, but that ABC edited her to make her seem like a harpy.
Lily Wyatt took to her Instagram Stories to say that ABC didn't exactly show what really went down when Hannah came for a visit.
"They made me look so mean," she lamented on social media.
Lily followed those words with an emoji of a smiling face both laughing and crying.
"I swear y’all," Lily assured her followers. "Our conversation went wayyyy better than this!"
That's good to hear, even though we all know that editing can only do so much to make someone seem unkind.
On Monday's episode, Jedd's mother Gina was very direct about her concerns that an engagement would distract from his music career.
"I wouldn’t have felt that way before just because he’s a musician,” Gina admitted.
As she pointed out: “You don’t get a diploma to be a musician."
"So I mean," Gina continued. "Jed’s had to have jobs and try to create time and space to do his music."
"It’s his heart and his soul," she expressed. "He couldn’t go to work and do music, so his path is different. It’s very different."
This is when Lily chimed in.
"Him potentially falling in love with you," Lily confessed to Hannah. "I’m not sure that it’s a good thing."
Hannah explained to Chris Harrison that she still wasn't sure which of the final dudes was her person -- she felt torn.
"I don’t know what to do," the leading lady admitted. "I have four great men and I can look at a life with each of them."
Hannah continued: "but I don’t know if I’ve had time to know who my person is because I need more time."
"I want to dive in," she confessed. "And I don’t feel like I’m diving in the way I could with any of the relationships."
This week, Jed himself spoke out about cheating rumors and the backlash that he has faced from fans of the show.
"Hi y’all," Jed's Instagram post began. "Several of you have reached out with messages and questions."
"Please know I’m not able to answer right now," he explained.
"But as soon as I’m able to," Jed promised. "I will."
Questions about the girlfriend he kept even as he joined the show. Questions about him cheating on that girlfriend before he met Hannah.
Jed then got very, very serious.
"Until then, I ask that you please understand how much the actions being taken towards myself, my family, the men on the show," Jed began.
He continued: "and above all, Hannah, are affecting all of our mental and physical health."
Don't harass reality stars.
Even if they're no-good cheating liars. They're real people.
"It goes beyond what is said online."
"Threatening letters and phone calls have been sent to our homes."
"My parents and sister are being verbally attacked in public."
"I beg you to remember what seems like a harmless action is damaging to real people."
"I want to thank all of you who have reached out," Jed expressed.
He continued: "or reserved judgement until I am able to speak openly."
"And," his heartfelt plea concluded. "I can only ask for your patience and kindness until then."
She did it, folks!
Hannah Brown defied the odds, stared history in the face on Monday night and did something no other Bachelorette in history has ever done before.
Tragically, no, we don't mean she punched Luke Parker in the face.
But Brown did visit the hometowns of four suitors, prompting Tyler to say some pretty heavy stuff about the Alabama native while the two were visiting his folks in Florida.
“One day I’ll be able to say ‘I love you,’ and I do believe that I’ll be able to stand 100 percent behind it,” the 26-year old said in an on-camera interview after a successful visit with his relatives.
During his hometown date in Georgia, Luke took Hannah to Sunday school... where he once again relayed the story about how he found Jesus in the shower.
“I was starting to experiment with things like partying and drinking and things that I knew that I shouldn’t be involved with,” the 24-year old explained of his high school years while speaking to a group of young adults from his church.
“And college, it was just crazy. I was chasing sex and I was entangled and caught up in sin of all kinds.”
Chasing sex in college?!? For major shame, dude.
Hannah, who has told off Luke on multiple occasions for the way he has slut and sex-shamed her, appreciated how Parker stuck to these convictions.
“It’s cool to see that Luke really lives his faith,” she said.
From there, Luke took the ex-pageant queen to meet his mother, father, brother, sister-in-law and grandparents.
Neither Brown nor Parker attempted to hide the struggles of their relationship while talking to his family, with the latter admitting that confessing his love after about a half hour caused things to go "downhill" between the pair.
“Sometimes it was like he thought he had it in the bag and it was really frustrating, ‘cause it came across as a little arrogant,” she candidly said of Luke.
Making it evidence that Luke's intense apple didn't fall far from his father's tree, Luke's dad said he totally saw the future "Mrs. Parker" when looking at Hannah -- which is also sort of sexist when you think about it.
But this caused Luke to open way up to his potential wife once more, as he poured it on very thick as follows:
I know that we have struggled. I have put you through a struggle through all of this and I have struggled just completely letting go and I just want to tell you that I am sorry.
We are finally back on track but I know that there still may be concerns that you have about us being able to get where we need to be.
I’m going to continue just to show you who I am. [I] without a doubt I see a future with you. Without a doubt looking in your eyes, I feel like I am looking at my future wife.
And without a doubt I can tell you that I do love you.
"I’m falling in love with Luke."
How would Jed top this during his hometown date in Tennessee?
By declaring his own love for Hannah early on, that's how.
The reality stars started off in Knoxville, where Jed - who allegedly had a girlfriend during his time on the show, remember! - tried to win over Hannah via his music skills.
They wrote and performed their own original song in a recording studio... and he ended their time together by declaring, “I love you. I can feel it.”
Hannah told the camera later that she was "falling in love" with Jed as well.
However, when Hannah met Jed’s family, his mother, Gina, expressed concern that Brown went around sharing that feeling with all of her suitors, to which Hannah replied that this wasn't the case.
“I wouldn’t have felt that way before just because he’s a musician,” Gina told Hannah of whether she felt Jed is ready for marriage, adding:
“You don’t get a diploma to be a musician. So, I mean, Jed’s had to have jobs and try to create time and space to do his music. It’s his heart and his soul. He couldn’t go to work and do music, so his path is different.
"It’s very different.”
Jed's sister agreed that him falling for Hannah could ruin his music career, which was an odd twist and weird thing to say to The Bachelorette.
This made it very confusing for Hannah to decide what to do at the Rose Ceremony.
“I was hoping that hometowns would give me clarity, but my heart is still open to each relationship and doesn’t feel confident in closing the door,” Hannah said in an on-camera interview.
Still, Tyler and Peter earned a flower right away -- only for Hannah to duck away before figuring out the fates of Jed (THE CHEATER) and Luke (THE SEXIST PIG).
“I can’t make a decision,” Hannah claimed to host Chris Harrison.
“I don’t know what to do. I have four great men and I can look at a life with each of them, but I don’t know if I’ve had time to know who my person is because I need more time.
"I want to dive in and I don’t feel like I’m diving in the way I could with any of the relationships.”
How did Harrison help Hannah solve this dilemma?
By giving her the first-ever extra rose! She was permitted to keep all four men around leading into next Monday's episode fantasy suite episode!
“It feels like it was really hard for her to make a decision between me and somebody who’s been a complete scumbag through this whole process,” Jed told the camera.
“I don’t want to be in the same category or even close to the same category as him," he added of Luke.
"He’s been a constant toxin through every bit of this. And to feel like a tossup between me and him now, I don’t know. As of right now, I am so unsure about all this.”
And yet... we're pretty sure he'll gladly get it on with Hannah next week.
