It’s been alternately amusing and dismaying to read the reactions to the Kim Kardashian lawyer news, because most people have no idea *how* to react. It’s easy enough to dismiss Kim’s ambitions — but doing so is a mistake.
With her My 600 Lb Life debut, Angela Gutierrez became the second cast member ever to drop out of Dr. Nowzaradan’s weight loss program. But did Angela really lose over 100 pounds on her own? Read on for our update on Angela’s situation, including a few new photos she’s shared since filming for her episode wrapped…
Chip and Joanna Gaines are officially back: they’re launching their own cable network in the summer of 2020. Longtime fans are mostly thrilled, but, based on what we know about the network so far, it sounds like things won’t exactly be a return to Fixer Upper form.
It’s been a long weight loss journey for My 600 Lb Life Season 5 star Michael Dominguez, whose wife, Roni, was recently approved for her own weight loss surgery. So how is My 600 Lb Life Michael now? And are he and Roni still married? We’ve got the latest, plus some new before and after photos of both…
CELEBITCHY – Game of Thrones is back (just a little bit!) and now that the season premiere has aired, The Takes have arrived. What better place to start than with cast member John Bradley — better known as Samwell Tarly — who thinks Daenerys was “psychopathic” in the premiere and will only get worse
THE BLEMISH – John Legend is so into Game of Thrones he kicked Chrissy Teigen out of their house for talking too much during the new episode
JEZEBEL – Kit Harington is so into Game of Thrones that he has just two short words for the show’s critics. They rhyme with “Puck stew”
VOX – The lowkey winner of the GoT Season 8 premiere was Bran Stark, who turned in a hell of a performance just sitting there being ominous and creepy. As is so often the case, the internet’s collective response to Creepy Bran says more about the people watching than about the character himself
DLISTED – Despite an enormous, worse-than-originally-reported fire and the complete loss of the wooden frame, the Notre-Dame de Paris cathedral has been saved. Its twin stone towers were spared entirely, and over half a billion euros in private donations have already been pledged for the cathedral’s reconstruction
THE BLAST – Jeff and MacKenzie Bezos are finally, officially divorced, for good. Here’s everything we know about the details of their split (including MacKenzie’s estimated net worth)
REALITY TEA – “Last night’s Vanderpump Rules was all about redemption. In a Hollywood kinda way.”
THE ASHLEY’S REALITY ROUNDUP – “Johnny Bananas & Wes Bergmann Take Maury Povich’s Lie Detector To Settle Feud”
LAINEY GOSSIP – If you thought that of all the Girls cast members Allison Williams would have the most varied & interesting acting career, congrats — your one-in-three shot paid off. (Lena Dunham was always going to be excluded from consideration)
The most controversial story in My 600 Lb Life history is getting another chapter. Steven and Justin Assanti, whose appearances remain the show’s most talked-about, are back with a new Where Are They Now? episode later this year. We’ve got confirmation from the Assanti Brothers themselves, plus new photos of Steven and a little bit of tea from Justin.
CELEBITCHY – It would be amazing if Kit Harington’s description of his last day on the set of Game of Thrones — which, in Harington’s own words, sounds like a “wet fart” — really did turn out to be his last scene in the show. Sometimes, the best secrecy is a mindf*ck of paranoia (plus drone hunters)
LAINEY GOSSIP – I’m not exactly sure how one calculates the odds of “winning” Game of Thrones, since the show has made it pretty damn clear there isn’t going to be an Iron Throne left to sit on at the end. Nonetheless, here’s an explainer involving House Stark’s odds, which are…decent, assuming you’re comfortable ruling over a vast pile of icy death rubble
THE BLAST – It seems that what caused Wendy Williams’ recent relapse and led to her stay in a sober living facility was Williams’ soon-to-be-ex husband Kevin Hunter confessing to “certain transgressions” — news that Williams, understandably, did not take well
VOX – The president’s sister was a federal judge until a couple of months ago, when she resigned abruptly in order to end an investigation into her possible role in a Trump tax evasion scheme
REALITY TEA – Apparently Lori Loughlin had either gotten reality TV offers or was in talks for her own reality TV show before the college admissions scandal broke. And if you don’t think she’ll have a deal in place by the time her legal battle and likely prison sentence are over, you need to watch more reality TV yourself
JEZEBEL – Amber Heard’s court filing in response to Johnny Depp’s $50 million defamation lawsuit against her claims that Depp threatened to kill Heard on multiple occasions
THE ASHLEY’S REALITY ROUNDUP – The surprise isn’t that Kendra Duggar is pregnant again; it’s that she found one of the weirdest & most borderline disgusting ways possible to break the news to her husband Joe
DLISTED – You know who else only eats once per day? People who can’t afford to
THE BLEMISH – Evidently the only thing standing between yourself and a guest spot on a real, live Soulja Boy track is ten thousand real, live dollars
The My 600 Lb Life Angela episode depicts a woman who is just about out of patience with the way the world treats the obese — but whose own weight loss journey is only getting started. Angela Gutierrez, a native Ohioan, makes the arduous journey to Dr. Now’s Houston office in a number of awkward positions, both literal and figurative, when no one in her family can accompany her, and she’s forced to reach out to an ex-lover.
