Did she lose any weight? Does she still have her dogs? We’ve done some digging, and we’ve got answers to all of those questions — plus more!
DLISTED – Within 24 hours of announcing it, Bella Thorne’s OnlyFans account did two things never done in the page’s brief and increasingly popular history: the first was crash the site; the second was make Bella a cool million dollars. (Evidently that’s after the site itself takes its 20% cut.) Fun fact that I did not know and now can’t stop wondering about the implications of: Bella is the third member of her family on OnlyFans
REALITY TEA – After five years, six seasons, and one too many recent low blows, Dorinda Medley is no longer a member of the Real Housewives of New York cast.

VOX – Erstwhile conservative Christian Jerry Falwell Jr. disclosed that he’d been in an extended three-way with his wife and the couple’s pool boy, and Falwell is now all the way out the door at Liberty University, where he had (more or less) been president…but the story is actually so much deeper and more corrupt than just a sex scandal

GO FUG YOURSELF – “The Teen Choice Awards, as a thing, turns 21 this year and is finally old enough to crack a beer and look back at itself. I just hope it doesn’t drink every time there are bad pants, because in that case its night will end badly”
The troubles continue for the Beaver family from MTV’s Teen Mom: Young and Pregnant. Rachel Beaver’s older sister Malorie Beaver was back behind bars in Tennessee earlier today after being charged with underage drinking and juvenile driving while intoxicated. She appears to be injured in her mug shot photo, which lines up with online reports that she was involved in a car accident.

THE ASHLEY’S REALITY ROUNDUP – Bravo has pulled a handful of episodes of Southern Charm for being racist, so here’s a look at which episodes they yanked & why they were taken down. There’s also a strong argument to be made that you could simply pull Southern Charm itself for the same reason, but I suppose that’s an argument for another day

TLC’s super popular 90 Day Fiance reality series premiered more than six-and-a-half years ago and has spawned no fewer than seven different spin-off series.

Well, until next month.
