We’ve got an update in the My 600 Lb Life Joe divorce, and it seems the Season 3 and Where Are They Now? star is ready to start moving on with his life following Sarah’s infidelity. Just days after our exclusive reveal, Joe Wexler offered some surprising details about what led to his split from Sarah — including why he’s still “bitter” over Sarah’s “poor decisions,” and how Joe is managing to start over.
The ongoing battle between Derick Dillard and Jim Bob Duggar over the Duggar family’s finances just took a strange and unexpected turn. Derick chose now to respond to some very old tweets connecting him to Jim Bob’s financial arrangements — and made some surprising allegations in the process. Read on for the details…
There have been a swirl of rumors about Southern Charm canceled over the past few weeks, thanks to an unexplained halt in the show’s usual production schedule and an uncharacteristic silence on Southern Charm Season 7 from Bravo itself. However, we’ve learned that the show is in fact coming back for another season — but it may also be in big trouble.
REALITY TEA – Turns out Porsha Williams isn’t the only Real Housewife with IRS issues. Robyn Dixon back taxes are now a thing, thanks to the agency claiming the Real Housewives of Potomac star didn’t pay any income tax at all from 2015 to 2017. Robyn’s total tax bill is just shy of $90,000, but at least she’s not Lori Laughlin
JEZEBEL – Popeye’s is bringing back its infamous and long-sold-out chicken sandwich just in time for everyone to have forgotten all about it and thus presumably (?) get excited about it all over again. I would never have guessed that fast food could do with sandwiches what sneaker companies do with shoes, but it seems a limited-edition chicken sandwich can and did work
LAINEY GOSSIP – The other night, accused rapist and generally disgraced human Harvey Weinstein was spotted hanging out in the audience at an open mic night for artists. No one was saying anything about it, so one of the artists — by chance, a comedian! — got up on stage and proceeded to roast him (despite a less-than-receptive audience). Her name is Kelly Buchanan, and here’s the video of her impromptu set

THE BLAST – This Kanye and Kim headline is some grade-A low key shade
CELEBITCHY – And speaking of Kanye, he would like you to know that he apparently “suffers on social media” because there are too many sexy women sharing sexy photos of their bodies. He said some other stuff too; none of it really makes any sense!
THE BLEMISH – Ben Affleck is trying to find love on an exclusive, members-only dating app that requires users to create “a photo montage set to music.” Ben Affleck’s life is currently the pilot episode of a network sitcom
DLISTED – Joe Francis of Girls Gone Wild infamy was “tied up, robbed, and nearly kidnapped” by five armed men while hanging out at his neighbor’s house in Mexico last week. I wish I could say that the burglars singled Joe out, but alas, it seems the other people in the house suffered the same fate
GO FUG YOURSELF – This article on the character Chris Evans’ brother Scott played on One Life To Life is so delightful that you’ll forget there are also photos of the two handsome brothers wearing “low-key, reasonable bomber jackets” for you to look at
VOX – It’s getting cold-ish outside, so here’s the deal with the sleeping bag puffer coats you’re about to start seeing everywhere again
We’ve got a My 600 Lb Life Joe update to share, but it’s unfortunately a sad one. Season 3 and Where Are They Now? star Joe Wexler has just announced that he’s divorcing his estranged wife Sarah, apparently due to her infidelity. And the divorce isn’t the only major change in Joe’s life; read on for the details.
CELEBITCHY – Thanks to a slew of new charges including bribery, the Lori Laughlin prison sentence could now be up to 50 years — or 1,304 times longer than Felicity Huffman will have spent behind bars after taking the feds’ deal and pleading guilty. Laughlin could also have to pay well over a million dollars in fines; that Hallmark money is good, but it’s not going to last forever
VOX – Yesterday afternoon a group of Congressional Republicans literally barged into a secure room during a closed hearing on the Trump impeachment and likely compromised the security of the place, making it easier for foreign governments to spy on them (and, by extension, us). They also ordered pizza
LAINEY GOSSIP – VH1 just announced that RuPaul’s Drag Race is getting a celebrity-based spin-off starting in 2020, and speculation has already begun about which celebs will be included in the debut season. I for one would like to see Tom Hanks and Tim Allen in an episode, if only so Tim can recreate some of the comedic chops he displayed during the Toy Story 4 promo tour
REALITY TEA – RHOA star Cynthia Bailey says her literal glow-up comes from “having lots of sex” with her fiancé Mike Hill. Also (no surprise) their 2020 wedding will be filmed for the show, but Cynthia doesn’t have a venue yet

THE BLAST – Katy Perry does ASMR now, because #content. Except her new rendition of “Harley In Hawaii” is also meant to be funny, so if you’re genuinely into ASMR videos you’re probably going to be genuinely annoyed by this
JEZEBEL – There’s a new version of the story about Princess Diana once shoving her stepmother, Countess Raine Spencer, down a flight of stairs. Said Diana of the incident: “I pushed her down the stairs, which gave me enormous satisfaction. I wanted to throttle that stepmother of mine. She brought me such grief.” No way to misinterpret that
GO FUG YOURSELF – “The Japanese Enthronement Was Very Glam And Interesting”
THE BLEMISH – “I had no idea Steve Harvey’s stepdaughter was so hot. I think it was because I was blinded by his pastel grandpa suits.”

We’ve got an update on My 600 Lb Life‘s Maja Radanovic, and it may have just answered one of the most frequently asked questions about the Season 7 star. In addition to new pics, we think we’ve figured out the My 600 Lb Life Maja height — plus, there’s new info on whether or not Maja might film a follow-up episode.
CELEBITCHY – Mitt Romney’s secret identity for Twitter purposes sounds like an alias Homer Simpson would think up on the fly and then wear a mustache for in person
THE BLAST – Nicki Minaj got married to…this guy?
REALITY TEA – Theresa and Joe Giudice are having a sit-down with Andy Cohen to air out all the rumors and gossip surrounding their relationship and its future. It’s unclear if Joe will be present thanks to Skype or if Andy and Teresa and a Bravo crew are schlepping all the way to Italy to film this (and the answer to that question will likely say a lot about the state of their marriage)
VOX – Here’s the final trailer for Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, a clunky title if ever one was. This movie comes out four years after the first Star Wars reboot, something that thanks to Disney’s over-saturating the market and the general pace of the entertainment I honestly can’t even remember the title of right now

THE BLEMISH – Jennifer Aniston took to the Instagram game pretty quickly. She also got sixteen million followers in six days: “Next will come the sponsored posts for Smartwater and Tiffany & Co.”
DLISTED – Speaking of Instagram: Zooey Deschanel and her Property Brother are now IG-official. It occurs to me that everything I said about Star Wars above also applies to Property Brothers
JEZEBEL – Johnny Depp’s legal strategy against his ex Amber Heard and her claims of domestic abuse appear to be going poorly
