But, is he actually rich? Or is he faking it? We’ve got receipts on his recent home purchase which should help answer that question!
We’ve got another big update on My 600 Lb Life Robin and Garrett now — and the good news concerns their upcoming Where Are They Now? episode. It sounds like we don’t have long to wait for the episode’s premiere, but Robin has actually given fans a huge clue about her successful continued weight loss! Read on to see how much healthier she’s gotten!
After a weekend filled with gossip and uncertainty about an alleged Duggar home raid, we’ve finally gotten confirmation that federal agents were at the family’s compound as part of an “ongoing criminal investigation.” However, the Duggars themselves have also offered a denial of the events, in which they appear to be splitting hairs about the definition of the word “raided.”
JEZEBEL – There’s a new Cats trailer out ahead of the movie’s Christmas release. If you didn’t already know anything about the Andrew Lloyd Webber musical Cats, this trailer will not help explain the film adaptation’s plot (nor its source material’s strange appeal)
THE BLAST – Now that the last embers of King’s Landing have just about cooled down, Emilia Clarke is ready to start spilling some Game of Thrones tea. In a new interview, Clarke discussed “multiple times where…she was getting pressured from higher-ups” to do more nude scenes. Co-star Jason Momoa helped the Mother of Dragons realize that, inexperience be damned, she could indeed say no
VOX – This explainer is probably more than you wanted to know about the meaning of “OK, boomer” — since, if you unpack it correctly, you see that the phrase explains why we’re all doomed. I for one take comfort in the fact that every single thing seems to point toward humanity’s self-destruction
CELEBITCHY – The strategy behind Dutchess Meghan’s defamation lawsuit against the Daily Mail is likely to reduce the tabloid to what sounds like a pretty weak defense
DLISTED – The Charlie’s Angels remake is an unqualfied flop, but director and star Elizabeth Banks is fine with it. Looking back over the various other Charlie’s Angels franchise attempts (fairly successful movie in 2000; mostly unsuccessful sequel in 2003; flop TV show in 2011), it seems like maybe the concept itself is just kind of done
LAINEY GOSSIP – Robert Pattinson is still on the promotional circuit for The Lighthouse, trying to gin up his chances of an Oscar nomination
THE ASHLEY’S REALITY ROUNDUP – “Mama June’s Boyfriend Geno Doak Reappears on Instagram; Does Bizarre Anti-Cancer Plug…While Smoking a Cigarette”
REALITY TEA – Yes, former RHOBH star Kim Richards is writing an autobiography “all about [her] life.” If you’re like me and knew next to nothing about her before reading this article, you are now very hungry for Kim’s book to come out
THE BLEMISH – “Amber Liu Apologizes Before She Gets Canceled”
GO FUG YOURSELF – It’s been said before, but Elizabeth Hurley really does seem to be aging way less than even typical Hollywood stars with access to top-shelf beauticians and plastic surgeons age
Unexpected dad Anthony Vanelli is still facing a misdemeanor domestic battery charge after an altercation with ex Rilah Ferrer last month. But, it appears that the tension between him, Rilah, and Rilah’s mother Rosa has subsided as the protective order filed against Anthony the day after the incident has been dismissed.
Despite a tidal wave of rumors, gossip, and supposed circumstantial evidence proving it, there appears to have been no Josh Duggar FBI raid this past weekend. But the real story is how the alleged raid went from Facebook gossip to blind item to accepted fact by plenty of Duggar detractors in just 48 hours.
LAINEY GOSSIP – Prince Andrew is more or less claiming that he couldn’t have raped a teenager because he used to not be able to sweat. And though Prince Andrew’s sweat glands are the instantly viral takeaway from his disaster of a BBC interview, they’re hardly the only shocking moment — something that this helpful breakdown will make very clear
JEZEBEL – Felicity Huffman offered a sincere apology for her actions in the college admissions scandal, served her (short, but still) prison sentence, and is back to her normal life. Lori Laughlin, on the other hand, hasn’t offered a single word of apology, or any other word at all — which, given her films’ target demographic, is pretty surprising
THE ASHLEY’S REALITY ROUNDUP – Stassi Schroeder revealed a bunch of new details about her wedding in the run-up to this year’s BravoCon. Among them: the wedding will be crime-themed (swell); she’s getting married in the autumn because she refuses to sweat (weird hill to die on, but OK); and she thought having an overseas wedding “would actually make [the planning] easier”
CELEBITCHY – No one who knows the real reason is saying why Donald Trump paid an unexpected, unannounced, rushed visit to the Walter Reed Medical Center over the weekend — but “a fat, old, senile man being rushed to the hospital out of nowhere on a Saturday morning just indicates that something else was going on.”
REALITY TEA – Jill Zarin says she’s “done” trying to get back on Real Housewives of New York, in part because she “could never live up to the fans wanting [her] to come back”
THE BLAST – Speaking of the Real Housewives and BravoCon, here’s why Porsha Williams was BravoCon in a wheelchair this year
THE BLEMISH – “You’ve been warned” is itself a warning, so you’ve been warned: “Girl Sucks Her Dog’s Tongue to Go Viral”
GO FUG YOURSELF – Damn, we’re already at “closes out the year”-levels of celebrity coverage? I know there’s only six weeks left in 2019, but that still seems a bit rushed. (Related: Renee Zellweger looks fantastic on the cover of In Style‘s end-of-year issue)
VOX – “Where the 1960s ‘psychedelic’ look came from”
DLISTED – Johnny Depp has never looked more like Keith Richards than he does in the photo accompanying this article. And by “more like Keith Richards,” I mean Depp looks old
We thought we had some shocking news when we revealed a month ago that 90 Day Fiance Season 7 star Robert has two more children in addition to his five-year-old son Bryson, who he lives with and is featured prominently on the show. As it turns out, our reveal was selling Robert Appleseed a bit short!
