If you don’t recognize My 600 Lb Life star Justin McSwain in these recent photos, we can’t blame you. Justin’s latest before and after pics reveal a transformation that rivals the most complete we’ve ever seen from the show’s cast. So where is Justin McSwain now? And how is he doing? Read on for the wonderful news!
We’ve got the complete LHHATL Season 9 cast ahead of the show’s return next month, along with social media info for each, and plenty of tea about the newbies. It looks like there will be three major new names this year, and the headliner among them has apparently been beefing so hard with a veteran that one of them refuses to film with the other.
The My 600 Lb Life lawyer handling the still-growing number of lawsuits against the show’s producers has responded to critics who call those lawsuits just a quick cash grab. High-profile, high-powered Texas attorney Tony Buzbee was frank and focused during our earlier conversation regarding the My 600 Lb Life lawsuits.
We’re only a couple of weeks away from the Corey Feldman movie truth official release, and Feldman has been making the publicity rounds to detail some of the allegedly explosive accusations in the documentary. In a recent interview on The Domenick Nati Show, Feldman claimed he was once nearly mowed down by monster trucks in an attempt on his life. Feldman also said that the apparent assassination attempt was one of two that he’s survived in recent years.
The high-profile Texas attorney handling the My 600 Lb Life lawsuits promised us “more to come” in an exclusive interview with Starcasm, and that promise has been fulfilled once more. In a surprise Jeanne Covey update, the divisive Season 7 star becomes the fifth My 600 Lb Life cast member to sue Megalomedia as well as the rest of the show’s producers. Jeanne and her mother, Barbara Fallaw, make many of the same allegations as the previous four cast members to sue — and further claim that Megalomedia reneged on a promise to pay approximately $70,000 in medical bills for the pair.
REALITY TEA – It wasnt entirely shocking to learn about LeeAnne Locken off RHOD, given her questionable comments about castmate Kary Brittingham. We still don’t know if LeeAnne was fired or quit of her own volition. LeeAnne announced the “personal decision” in an interview timed for release during a major network event (the most circus-y Democratic debate yet); make of that what you will
CELEBITCHY – Apparently Queen Elizabeth has taken the entire Sussexit drama personally and is ready for the whole thing to be done already. What I want to know is whether this seemingly endless saga means we’re going to get that sixth season of The Crown after all
VOX – The CDC is now telling Americans to be prepared for the spread of coronavirus: according to Nancy Messonnier, director of the CDC’s National Center for Immunication and Respiratory Diseases, “It’s not a question of if this will happen, but when this will happen, and how many people in this country will have severe illnesses.”
JEZEBEL – In other preparedness news, convicted rapist Harvey Weinstein has hired a “prison consultant” to help him get ready for his likely 25+ year sentence. Presumably it’s a crash course; Weinstein’s sentencing is March 11th
THE BLEMISH – Disney moved forthcoming show Love, Victor from Disney+ to Hulu because it thinks two dudes kissing is anti-family. To further throw people off, Disney also changed the name of the show *from* Love, Simon to Love, Victor in the same press release, clearly hoping the latter story would dominate the former. Here are about a dozen good reasons why that’s hypocritical and absurd (feel free to come up with more)
LAINEY GOSSIP – K-Pop sensation BTS completely took over The Tonight Show earlier this week. I only know BTS because it seems like a couple times a week they’re trending first in the world on Twitter when I wake up, but I know they’re über huge, so I have to wonder why it took so long for them to get this kind of friendly media bounce?
THE ASHLEY’S REALITY ROUNDUP – “Bachelor in Paradise Star Krystal Nielson Gives More Details on Her Split from Husband Chris Randone; ‘BIP’ Star Jared Haibon Says Couple Had ‘Been Struggling For Quite Some Time'”
DLISTED – Tickets for ModelLand, Tyra Banks’ disaster-in-waiting, are now on sale? It costs $59 to enter, $549 for a “fantascene photoshoot,” and $1,495 for a “fantascene dream”? And neither Tyra nor anyone else has yet explained what any of this shit actually is?
THE BLAST – Netflix dropped the ball when they didn’t make the subtitle Inside Voices
GO FUG YOURSELF – Cate Blanchett is playing mind games with her hair
We’ve got a wonderful update on My 600 Lb Life star Chay Guillory, who is no longer just engaged to her fiancé Patrick! That’s right — this past weekend, Chay and Patrick went and got themselves married in a quiet ceremony!
JEZEBEL – Despite yesterday’s relatively stunning news of Harvey Weinstein convicted of rape, many outlets are still choosing to call him a “disgraced former mogul” (or words to that effect). But now there’s a legal basis for saying it: Harvey Weinstein is a rapist
DLISTED – Vanessa Bryant, widow of Kobe Bryant and mother of Gianna Bryant, has filed a wrongful death lawsuit against the helicopter company and pilot in charge of the aircraft that crashed on January 26th, taking the lives of her husband, daughter, and seven other people
THE BLAST – Beyonce brought everyone in the Staples Center to tears yesterday after opening the memorial to Kobe and Gianna with her songs “XO” and “Halo”
CELEBITCHY – It seems the British royal family, after issuing a petty statement declaring that Harry and Meghan will no longer be able to use the term “Royal” to describe themselves after leaving the palace next month, was not at all pleased when Harry and Meghan issued a counter-statement pointing out that they’ve been treated rather differently than the rest of the royal family of late
VOX – Amazon to the US Senate: “No, our workers are not *forced* to pee in empty water bottles stashed in the dark corners of Amazon warehouses like spoons at the malt syrup factory in Slaughterhouse-Five. They simply *choose* to pee in those bottles, which are nearer than the bathroom — and they can use them to pee *any time* they want”
LAINEY GOSSIP – If you haven’t seen the tweet from Gigi Hadid’s that reduced Jake Paul to a YouTube silhouette with a mere handful of followers, do yourself a favor and check it out
THE ASHLEY’S REALITY ROUNDUP – “Prosecutors Drop Charges Against Former Mob Wives Star Drita D’Avanzo; Drita’s Husband Lee D’Avanzo is Indicted by Feds”
GO FUG YOURSELF – The Heather and Jessica from GFY have a new book coming out this summer and it sounds like an especially delightful, timely, & trashy beach read (the latter in the best sense)
REALITY TEA – Just like the name Below Deck Sailing Yacht, you will never convince me that the names of these people are real and were not simply conceived by algorithm
THE BLEMISH – Yeah, Michael Bloomberg is creepy AF
