THE BLAST – She’s since apologized for it, but the Kelly Dodd Drunk Wives Matter controversy has already generated a huge backlash and led to gossip a-plenty that the RHOC star is not long for the show
CELEBITCHY – It says something — a whole bunch of things, really — that 15-year-old Claudia Conway’s TikTok videos are a legitimate behind-the-scenes look at the current White House and the people who live and work and get sick in it
DLISTED – An unfortunate Rest In Peace to the legend Eddie Van Halen, who died yesterday at 65 after a protracted battle with throat cancer.
