LINKS Dan Spilo speaks out, Kumail Nanjani gets ripped, Meghan McCain vs. Whoopi Goldberg…

THE ASHLEY’S REALITY ROUNDUPA couple of days after Dan Spilo became the first Survivor contestant to be removed from the show for inappropriate behavior, he made his first and likely last public comment on the matter. But even the Dan Spilo speaks out news was tainted by controversy, as Spilo only made a public statement after fellow cast member Kellee Kim took Spilo and the producers to task for not listening to her complaints about Spilo’s behavior earlier in the season

THE BLEMISHIf you haven’t seen the Kumail Nanjiani pic yet, do yourself a favor. I don’t particularly care for or dislike his work, but that is a seriously impressive spring break bod. Or some excellent makeup and CGI? Either way — worth a look!

CELEBITCHYBut, Meghan, Daenerys turned out to be badly written and then got stabbed to death after being queen for maybe an hour and a half, are you sure that’s the comparison you want to go with?

VOXOh yeah, and this happened

GO FUG YOURSELFIt’s one of the most difficult paparazzi genres to cover well: the celebrity-hiding-in-a-car photo gallery. And yet, tell me you wouldn’t appreciate a regular feature based entirely on this: “It is time for us to look at photos of royal and royal-adjacent personages driving to and from Granny’s Christmas Luncheon and make judgements about them based on what they look like through a car window!”

DLISTEDEverything about this clip is goofy as hell, and if it means one is hellbound for laughing at it then count me in

My 600 Lb Life Angela Johns update: Controversial star suggests surgery success

Angie J was perhaps the most controversial and universally disliked member of the My 600 Lb Life Season 7 cast. But, in her recent updates, she claims she’s turned herself around. And, in the most shocking detail of our new My 600 Lb Life Angela Johns update, the native Ohioan says she’s actually undergone successful bariatric surgery. Read on for the latest, including the most recent photos Angela has made public, and see for yourself whether her claims hold up…

EXCLUSIVE My 600 Lb Life John and Lonnie photos and episode details before Season 8 premiere

TLC is keeping its cards pretty close to the chest where My 600 Lb Life Season 8 is concerned. So far, all we’ve gotten about the first episode is the name of the featured cast members. Fortunately, that was enough for us to find out more about the My 600 Lb Life John and Lonnie episode — and to find plenty of pics of the two of them from before and during filming.

MY 600 LB LIFE Tamy Lyn Murrell’s Where Are They Now episode finally has an airdate

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!

RHONJ Teresa and Joe Giudice split after more than 20 years together

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.

PHOTOS MY 600 LB LIFE Cynthia Wells vows recovery after setback: ‘Keep watching I’m not done’

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?

LINKS Oscar nominee Adam Sandler, Taylor Swift rejection, Below Deck drama…

LAINEY GOSSIPApparently 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)

CELEBITCHYTaylor 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

DLISTEDTo 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
