Keep reading for Angela’s full response, plus her latest weight loss update and new photos.
JEZEBEL – In case you were skeptical about the House Hunters throuple featured on an episode last week — no, the relationship wasn’t staged for TV, it’s real and it’s (apparently) spectacular. And HGTV has to be absolutely loving the DVR ratings for the episode right now (ICYMI: it’s called “Three’s Not a Crowd in Colorado Springs”)
CELEBITCHY – Jameela Jamil is still getting called out / investigated / maybe canceled (?) for appearing to embellish or at least fabricate some of her claims of ill health over the past few years. One person who isn’t hearing any of it is Jamil’s boyfriend, James Blake, who says she’s had “a difficult life” dealing with numerous ailments and has had to turn down multiple “huge, life-changing jobs” because of them. No matter how this story turns out, I am now extra excited to re-watch The Good Place with the knowledge that Jameela is more like Tahani than we all knew
THE BLAST – Sharon Osbourne does indeed look great with white hair
REALITY TEA – Kim Richards forgot to drop Kyle a note informing her of the existence of Kim’s forthcoming tell-all, which apparently depicts Kim as “a whipping post of a sister”
THE ASHLEY’S REALITY ROUNDUP – To anyone who took the under at “the length of a full-term pregnancy” for Krystal Nielson and Chris Randone’s Bachelor In Paradise-inspired marriage, collect your winnings
VOX – It’s nice enough that Jeff Bezos is donating $10 billion of his $130 billion fortune to fight climate change, but Amazon has done and will continue to do far more than $10 billion worth of damage to the world’s climate. So, upside-down-face emoji, I guess
DLISTED – Amber Rose’s boyfriend and baby daddy Alexander Edwards went ahead and got a face tattoo as well — it includes tributes to their son Slash, as well as to Bash, Amber’s son with Wiz Khalifa. And he left plenty of room for when he and Amber conceive Crash at some point in the future
GO FUG YOURSELF – “Kerry Washington Looks Phenomenal on InStyle: ‘Color Us Happy’ is the perfect cover line for this, because the entire photo is vibrant. It pops. And it does so without ever overshadowing the most vibrant and poppy thing about it: Kerry Washington herself, who looks sultry and perfect. I love it so much and I would absolutely pick this up off a newsstand”
THE BLEMISH – Yes, Constance Wu really did work in a strip club for one night to prepare for her role in Hustlers. No word on whether she also preferred it to Fresh Off The Boat
LAINEY GOSSIP – Jodie Turner-Smith and Joshua Jackson are talking about moving to Canada to raise their soon-to-be-born child because the political situation in both his native America and her native England has “gone off the rails.” Also, I just found out that Canada has a holiday called Family Day, which seems really nice?
It looks like the Puerto Rican princess is officially back! After several teases and a couple of failed reality TV pilots, Joseline Hernandez is set to return to the big stage when Love & Hip Hop Atlanta Season 9 drops later this year. Of course, there is a catch — read on for details…
JEZEBEL – After months of uncertainty, our long international nightmare is over: Justin Bieber shaved off his mustache. Fans of the French-Canadian tickler need not worry, though; Bieber has already promised that the fuzz on his upper lip will be back in due time (presumably whenever his manager talks him out of another face tattoo)
REALITY TEA – Speaking of departures and returns, RHOC star Gina Kirschenheiter has confirmed that she’s rejoining the cast and already begun filming the next season of the show
DLISTED – I had no idea that hypnobirthing was a thing, so Duchess Kate’s first-ever podcast interview was doubly earth-shaking for me
VOX – It seems a great many former ranking officials at the Department of Justice think that the current Attorney General should probably not have that job
THE BLAST – Drew Carey’s ex-fiancée Dr. Amie Harwick died this weekend, just a few hours after being attacked in her home and apparently shoved off her third-story balcony. Police have arrested an ex-boyfriend of Harwick’s, against whom she had recently taken out a restraining order
THE ASHLEY’S REALITY ROUNDUP – Caesar Mack from 90 Day Fiance will be on a episode of Naked and Afraid later this season, which is why he’s been posting so many social media updates from the gym lately
GO FUG YOURSELF – Here’s Miley Cyrus, practicing the subtle art of the scarf-shirt
LAINEY GOSSIP – If James Marsden’s character in the Sonic the Hedgehog movie is anything like his character in Dead To Me, I think we know how he got the part. (The studio should do a mashup of those two things just for the parents who had to suffer through Sonic next to their kids)
CELEBITCHY – According to Robert Pattinson, “no one realized that Twilight was an arthouse movie.” Hopefully he tries to make the same argument when doing promo for Batman in a couple years
THE BLEMISH – A Russian BJJ competitor tried a move called the “flying ambar” in competition and accidentally broke his neck. And yes, if you’re feeling up to it, there is video
He had one of the most successful weight loss stories of Season 8 so far, but what does Travis Henry look like now? Read on for our My 600 Lb Life Travis update, in which we see the native of Carrollton TX continuing to step out and shine with wife Yazmin by his side!

Starcasm has obtained exclusive details of the My 600 Lb Life new lawsuit, including Bolton’s claim that the show’s producers lied to him about paying for his medical bills; his allegations of staged and traumatic drama for reality TV purposes; and Bolton’s accusations regarding the lack of mental health care he says he needed, but did not receive.
CELEBITCHY – The new Batman movie won’t be out for awhile, but director Matt Reeves gave us our first look at Robert Pattinson’s Batman by sharing Pattinson’s in-costume camera test on social media. I’m not opposed, but also full disclosure that my first thought upon seeing it was “How tall is Robert Pattinson, anyway?”
THE BLAST – Cardi B’s sister Hennessy Carolina is channeling a little of the stuff that put her big sister on the path to superstardom. Hennessy’s most recent twerking video is racking up views, likes, and general attention befitting a much bigger star — plus she’s got some legit skills
LAINEY GOSSIP – Natalie Portman’s Oscars dress is still getting plenty of attention due to what some are calling Portman’s semi-hypocrisy when you compare the names of the female directors emblazoned upon it against those of the directors with whom Portman has actually worked. In other news, Natalie Portman’s next project will have a female director
THE BLEMISH – Snoop is sorry he came on a little strong in his response to Gayle King bringing up Kobe Bryant’s 2003 rape case in her interview with Lisa Leslie last week. Lest you missed this story, by “came on a little strong” I mean “made thinly veiled threats against King’s life”
THE ASHLEY’S REALITY ROUNDUP – Mama June isn’t getting paid for the new season of From Not To Hot because she’s not “an active participant in the new season.” Based on interviews with other cast members & some of the production, it sounds like she’s going to be Josh Duggar during the first season of Counting On
GO FUG YOURSELF – Lela Rose basically created a pop-up flower shop to have the right venue for debuting her new clothes and good lord does it ever work

JEZEBEL – “The 30 participants, all of whom seem to be very, very interested in the notion of finding their forever person and willing to do so on television, lock themselves in pods and speak to their prospective future life partner through a wall. After 10 days of interacting with strangers, the couples in question have to decide whether or not they want to get engaged”
DLISTED – Corey Feldman’s documentary (my) TRUTH: The Rape of 2 Coreys — a movie about alleged Hollywood pedophiles that Feldman crowdsourced to get made and that he’s been talking about making for nearly a decade — now has a trailer
REALITY TEA – Kenya Moore thinks NeNe Leakes “is not impactful at all” on RHOA and further says the network is phasing NeNe out entirely in favor of new blood
Kristofer Hivju’s new show Twin is a surprisingly necessary mashup of two genres — crime and surfing — that don’t get together as often as they should. In that sense, it’s the perfect project for Hivju, whose best-known character Tormund Giantsbane never managed to make babies with Brienne of Tarth on Game of Thrones.
