It’s been a long time coming, but we’re finally getting an official My 600 Lb Life Tamy before and after update. Tamy Lyn Murrell’s oft-delayed Where Are They Now? episode at last has an airdate — and we have a couple big updates from Tamy herself ahead of the follow-up. Keep reading for the details, plus a new photo of Tamy with one of her My 600 Lb Life co-stars!
A Teresa and Joe Giudice split has seemed all but inevitable for months, so it shouldn’t come as a galloping shock to learn that the two are done. Nonetheless, it was still a bit surprising to hear that the Real Housewives of New Jersey star decided to make the split from her recently deported husband tabloid-official so close to the holidays.
It’s been a hard road back from obesity for My 600 Lb Life star Cynthia Wells. The Season 5 and Where Are They Now? participant has been hard on herself in a string of frank updates these last few months. But her latest photos offer reason for encouragement — so what does Cynthia Wells look like now? And will she be filming another episode anytime soon?
LAINEY GOSSIP – Apparently we all need to get used to the phrase “Oscar nominee Adam Sandler,” since the release of Sandler (and indie studio A24)’s latest film, Uncut Gems, has only increased buzz about his seemingly inevitable acting nomination. As far as I’m concerned his career peaked when he drew a line in the sand at farting on a snare drum in Airheads (and I mean that with no disrespect)
CELEBITCHY – Taylor Swift’s Lady Gaga Oscars moment will have to wait for some other year — “Beautiful Ghosts,” the song she co-wrote with Andrew Lloyd Weber for the Cats adaptation, was not included on the Academy’s shortlist of nominees for Best Song. Salt in the wound: There are fifteen songs on the shortlist, including two from The Lion King and several from movies you’ve likely never heard of
REALITY TEA – “Kate Chastain Didn’t Involve Captain Lee Rosbach In Below Deck Drama Because She Didn’t Want People To Think He Gave Her Preferential Treatment”
JEZEBEL – My favorite is “Sad Child Man Makes Good Reporter Defenestrate”; what’s yours?
THE ASHLEY’S REALITY ROUNDUP – “Angelina Pivarnick Talks About Her Future on Jersey Shore Family Vacation & the Support She’s Gotten From Show’s Fans Following Mean Bridesmaids’ Speech Scandal”
GO FUG YOURSELF – Timothee Chalamet looks a little bit like Saoirse Ronan’s little brother dragged along to a family event in these Little Women British PR photos. (His boots are pretty great, though.) Everyone else looks various shades of fantastic
THE BLEMISH – Cardi B treated Offset to a night in a strip club for his 28th birthday earlier this week — seems like kind of a risky move for someone who’s been accused of cheating multiple times in the past year and change, but it made for a good Instagram video?
THE BLAST – Christina Hendricks is no longer married to the guy who says “I’m freakin’ out, man,” in Super Troopers
DLISTED – To be fair to Adam Driver, there are few sounds more unpleasant to me than my own voice. So, just like Adam Driver, I definitely would have walked out of an interview with Terry Gross if she had played a clip of me singing anything. However, unlike Adam Driver, I’m not a movie star who has to in one sense talk (and sing) for a living. Deal with it, not-Vader
VOX – Subhead of the week, possibly of the year: “Louie was my favorite show of the decade — until it very abruptly wasn’t: The most influential show of the 2010s was ruined by one man’s dick”
THE ASHLEY’S REALITY ROUNDUP – He just became the first person in Survivor‘s long history to get kicked off the show — but why was Dan Spilo ejected in the first place? Rumors are swirling about Spilo’s conduct toward female contestants, for which producers already reprimanded him once this season; the show’s most recent episode revealed only that Spilo had been “removed from the game after a report of another indicent, which happened off-camera and did not involve a player.” I’ll say
REALITY TEA – Brandi Glanville is talking about the upcoming season of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, and she’s got some less-than-kind things to say about her co-stars. Namely that she thinks “some other women” stir up drama and talk sh!t simply because “they’re not involved in the fighting.” Also it looks like Brandi is going to out Dorit Kemsley’s phony wealth this season, so, look out
VOX – A headline so simple you’ll have a hard time not reading through: “The commercialization of the commercialization of Christmas: Thoughts on ChristmasCon, Hallmark, and the eternal war over Christmas past”
CELEBITCHY – Apparently there’s a Hollywood A-lister who’s been sending graphic and uncensored photos of himself to swinger couples all over LA. By “uncensored” I mean he’s supposedly not doing anything to hide his famous face (or his soon-to-be-famous dick). There are two good guesses as to the sender’s ID here and I think one of them is definitely more likely than the other
JEZEBEL – “Real Housewives of Atlanta‘s Marlo Hampton on Being a ‘Munty’ and, Yes, a Peacemaker”
LAINEY GOSSIP – One of these release dates will for sure get changed, but, for now, May 21 2021 is for sure Keanu Reeves day since both Matrix 4 and John Wick 4 are scheduled to come out that day
GO FUG YOURSELF – Matthew McConaughey really does look like “a truly fashion-forward elf” in this long green coat-slash-semi-dress thing, and it’s working for him (the tinted glasses don’t hurt either)
THE BLAST – Come for the headline about Christina and Tarek sticking together for yet another season of Flip or Flop; stay for the completely natural promo pic of these two so far apart you could race go-karts between them
THE BLEMISH – Well of course R. Kelly had a sex trainer to teach women how to best have sex with him; that was just assumed, right?
DLISTED – The first trailer for In The Heights is here, and it’s a doozy. The musical Lin-Manuel Miranda made before Hamilton (and which also won the Tony award for Best Musical) looks every bit a summer spectacular
The updates on previous My 600 Lb Life cast members are coming fast and furious these days, as we approach a slew of new participants for Season 8. Next on the docket: Season 7 star Cillas Givens, who’s been keeping his head down and grinding away since his episode aired last year. Where is Cillas Givens now? And is he filming for a follow-up episode?
The first My 600 Lb Life Season 8 trailer is here — and we’ve got some early info on a few new cast members ahead of the show’s return.
THE ASHLEY’S REALITY ROUNDUP – We got treated to another round of Chrissy Tiegen’s celebrity secrets yesterday, when the always-entertaining model and TV star dished on a number of celebrity-specific behind-the-scenes questions her Twitter followers brought up. My favorite has to be the answer to how celebrities are able to avoid crowds at the airport — not that I didn’t assume they had their own version of everything, I just didn’t understand how *extensive* celebrity airport privacy
CELEBITCHY – I’m not going to check social media because I want to assume I’m the first and so far only person to look at these pictures of Kanye West covered head to toe in silver paint for a performance at Art Basel and immediately think of Tobias Fünke covering himself in Lindsay Bluth’s diamond cream on Arrested Development. On that note, Tobias referring to himself as a “standby understudy” for the Blue Man Group remains a wildly underrated joke
JEZEBEL – Olivia Wilde is trying to defend her new movie’s depiction of a real-life reporter who tries to trade sex for a(nother) tip, something the woman on whom Wilde’s character is based never actually did. The logic Wilde is reaching for is about as helpful as this controversy will be at propping Richard Jewell up at the box office
GO FUG YOURSELF – This is a masterful pairing of an eyebrow-raising headline with a terrific and misleading photo of Tracee Ellis Ross. It only looks like Ross has the titular worst outfit if you don’t click through — and trust me, clicking through is worth it for both the actual worst outfit and the runner-up
THE BLEMISH – Whether you’re at a kitchen, a restaurant, a bathroom, or an art gallery, a banana taped to a wall is also an invitation to eat that banana
VOX – It’s hardly the most fun reading in the world, but here is a supremely helpful article about how most sites track their users and keep track of their users’ data, along with of course the what & why of the data sites are keeping track of
REALITY TEA – “Scheana Marie’s Boyfriend’s Parents Have Been Vanderpump Rules Viewers, But Not “Fans Of Scheana””
LAINEY GOSSIP – Among the snubs at the upcoming Golden Globes, the nominations for which were announced yesterday: Greta Gerwig’s direction of the upcoming Little Women adaptation; Little Women itself, in the Best Motion Picture categories; and the entirety of When They See Us, Netflix’s massive hit about the Exonerated Five
DLISTED – Brad Pitt would like you to know that tabloids sometimes inflate details or make them up entirely
THE BLAST – I can only imagine the jokes this woman has to endure every time her family hosts Thanksgiving
