BEFORE THE 90 DAYS What is Stephanie’s life threatening illness? Is her relationship with Erika real?

TLC dropped the first preview trailer for the fourth season of 90 Day Fiance: Before the 90 Days this week, and among the six new couples featured is the franchise’s first same-sex relationship. After striking up a relationship on social media, 29-year-old Stephanie Matto from Yonkers, New York is flying to Australia to meet her 24-year-old girlfriend, Erika Owens. In addition to coming out to her family, Stephanie is also taking a huge risk making the trip because she suffers from a life-threatening illness that means “a common cold can kill me.” But, Stephanie is a popular YouTuber with a long resume of view-grabbing antics, so how much (if any) of her story is just a stunt to get on the show?

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

THE BLASTI must be loopy because this story about Shaq insisting Stevie Wonder isn’t actually blind has me *really* hoping that Stevie has just been faking it (or lowkey cataracting it) for the past thirty or so years

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‚Äôs 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
