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
My 600 Lb Life and Where Are They Now? star Janine Mueller has has one of the show’s most successful weight loss stories over the past few seasons. It therefore came as quite a shock when Janine revealed she’s actually quit the series and will no longer be filming follow-ups. So where is Janine Mueller now? What’s the deal with her boyfriend Doug? And why did she decide to end her involvement with the show?
CELEBITCHY – Cardi B and Offset’s latest drama is a huge and still-growing mess, but the goofiest thing about the Cardi B hacking story is how obviously transparent it is. Cardi would like you to believe that someone hacked Offset’s account specifically to send a DM to one of the women with whom he was allegedly cheating on Cardi last year, because that’s somehow more likely than he got caught and is squirming? “Someone hacked my social media” is to the celebrity world what “I’m retiring to spend more time with my family” is to politics
JEZEBEL – So it sure looks like Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, French PM Emmanuel Macron, and British PM and Trump impersonator Boris Johnson were captured on video openly teasing, mocking, and laughing at Donald Trump during this week’s NATO global summit. We can also safely assume this is what happened because after the video came out Trump canceled his remaining public appearances at the summit and got back on Air Force One to come home, both things you definitely do when you did not in fact get mocked and teased at the homecoming dance
LAINEY GOSSIP – There is a huge gap between public awareness of this year’s Aladdin remake, which was a massive worldwide box-office success, and actor Mena Massoud, who played Aladdin in that $1 billion movie. Case in point: Mena just revealed that he’s gotten zero auditions for other roles since Aladdin came out
THE BLAST – In a surprise move, Justin Timberlake acknowledged his hand-holding debacle with upcoming movie co-star Alisha Wainwright, publicly apologizing to Jessica Biel and blaming the whole thing on drinking too much. Justin also denied the worst of the rumors and lamented the example he set for his four-year-old son
THE ASHLEY’S REALITY ROUNDUP – “Corey Simms Speaks Out After Jeremy Calvert & Leah Messer Bash Him & His Wife Miranda During Teen Mom 2 Reunion”
REALITY TEA – Below Deck star Tanner Sterback is pushing back hard on rumors he banged co-star Simone Mashile. I’m more amused by the erotic lit names these two are sporting — “Mashile” is clearly French for “Up against the door of a bistro’s walk-in fridge,” and “Sterback” is the delicate act of mixing a cocktail while either getting plowed or plowing
DLISTED – RIP internet-famous cat Lil Bub, whose remains are apparently being sent into space (for charity)
VOX – The first trailer for the new James Bond movie is out. Despite its title, No Time To Die looks like it will definitely be Daniel Craig’s final time playing Bond. It’s a shame that none of his movies in the series have lived up to the promise of Casino Royale; maybe with this one he’ll go out in a blaze of genre-upending glory
GO FUG YOURSELF – I actually didn’t realize the third season of Marvelous Mrs. Masel hadn’t already premiered. I’ve written about its stars’ red carpet looks what, ten or twelve times in various links posts? Anyway the third season drops on Friday and once again the cast looks fabulous, if a bit tired of promoting something for at least as long as the thing took to make
THE BLEMISH – And speaking of time never passing: It’s not that I don’t believe Emily Ratajkowski is under 30 years old; more like it’s hard for me to believe I haven’t been seeing stories about Emily Ratajkowski like these and photos of her like these for at least the past 250 years
The latest Vianey & Allen update is one of the happiest and most positive My 600 Lb Life check-ins we’ve gotten in some time. The Season 7 stars suffered tremendously along their weight loss journey, which is why we’re delighted to report that they’re still doing so well a year later! Keep reading for the Chicago couple’s humbling news, plus a ton of applause-worthy pics!
The post-Thanksgiving confirmation of Drake and Kylie Jenner dating is only half the story to come out of their surprise relationship. Since sources close to both Drake and Kylie acknowledged that there had been something between the two, the amount of attention Drake has allegedly been paying to underage girls is also getting fresh scrutiny.
We’ve got a terrific update on My 600 Lb Life star Annjeannette Whaley now, including exclusive details on her upcoming Where Are They Now? episode! Annjeannette, who’s been looking fabulous in her latest weight loss pics, recently confirmed that she has indeed been filming for a follow-up — and that her sometimes controversial relationship with girlfriend Erica will be featured. Read on for the details, plus Annjeannette’s new photos!
