It’s been a tumultuous year for Rena Kiser and Lee Sutton, but it looks like the two of them are weathering the storm. Several months ago, we broke the story of the couple’s split over Lee’s apparent infidelity; in the latest My 600 Lb Life Rena and Lee update, we can confirm that the Season 6 and Where Are They Now? stars are still together — and are standing strong against fan criticism of their reconciliation.
CELEBITCHY – Felicity Huffman was only supposed to be in prison for two weeks for her role in the college admissions scandal, but was actually released three days early due to a loophole in prison policy. As you might have expected, Felicity Huffman free now has every major network and news show clamoring to be her first interview. Personally, I don’t care who gets it as long as we see some shade thrown Lori Laughlin’s way
DLISTED – Not sure how he expects this will work: Kanye West says he’ll “never perform his old music in its original form again,” meaning he’s going to make all his old lyrics G-rated in accordance with his newfound faith. Kanye should talk with Tom Araya from Slayer about one’s Christian beliefs having no affect on one’s art
REALITY TEA – RHOC star Meghan Edmonds revealed she and her husband Jim are going to counseling together over Jim’s sexting scandal from earlier this summer. They weren’t getting outside help at first, but things have changed since Meghan gave birth to their third child
VOX – Here’s the deal with Instagram’s infamous ban on nudity, something that’s long been protested by everyone from sex workers to photographers to folks just looking for a good time while their roommates are at the grocery store
GO FUG YOURSELF – “There’s a Little Mermaid Live, Apparently, Starring…John Stamos?!?”
THE ASHLEY’S REALITY ROUNDUP – Thomas Ravenel calling anyone “trash” is pret-t-t-y rich at this point
JEZEBEL – “Impressions of Crouton, a Moderately Famous Internet Cow”
THE BLAST – DNA testing has confirmed that Flava Flav is in fact the father of the two-month-old baby of Kate Gammell, whose pregnancy featured on the most recent season of Growing Up Hip-Hop and who will now sue Flav for child support
LAINEY GOSSIP – There’s some secret beef between Will & Grace stars Megan Mullally and Debra Messing
THE BLEMISH – Dean from Gilmore Girls was arrested for allegedly assaulting a bartender and the general manager of a club in Austin. If this were happening on Gilmore Girls it would mean he’s getting married tomorrow
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 ASHLEY’S REALITY ROUNDUP – “Jersey Shore Star Ronnie Ortiz-Magro Avoids Felony Charges Stemming From Fight with Baby Mama Jen Harley; Charged with Five Misdemeanors Instead”
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 ASHLEY’S REALITY ROUNDUP – “Vanderpump Rules Star Lala Kent Celebrates One Year of Sobriety; ‘VPR’ Co-Stars & Other Bravo Stars Congratulate Her”
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.”
DLISTED – Every year the dumbest “sexy” Halloween costume gets a little bit dumber
