Jordan Kimball: I Don’t Need Jenna! I Can Bang Whoever I Want!

Jordan Kimball accused Jenna Cooper of cheating, but Jenna says she can prove it's a fraud -- and that Jordan himself may have faked the proof.

Now, Jordan is looking for love again, but he says that he's not using any dating apps.

He is also bragging about how well he used to do using those apps, having racked up thousands of matches on Tinder.

Bachelor in Paradise's latest dream couple turned into a nightmare, but Jordan tells Us Weekly that he's just trying to move on and date again.

"Just to take it back to The Bachelorette," Jordan boasts. "I had over 4,000 matches on Tinder."

As you can see from every photo of this dude, that's no surprise -- but it also means that he was swiping right at least that many times.

"So," Jordan says. "You know I’ve always had a way with women."

He is, again, a model.

"[But now] I have no dating apps downloaded," Jordan shares.

Being a celebrity on a dating app is challenging at best, because you never know whom to trust.

Jordan says that his reason for avoiding those apps at the moment has more to do with wanting to date the old fashioned way.

"I think I’m going to do this organically," Jordan says.

That means meeting in person, rather than finding out if you're both compatible and interested in advance.

"And if it’s meant to be," Jordan continues. "It’s meant to be."

As of September, at least, he said that he had yet to go on another date since his relationship with Jenna Cooper crashed and burned.

"I’m very excited to open my heart up again …" Jordan reveals.

From what he says, he was very emotionally devastated by the scandal.

But he is interested in moving on.

"You just have to let that go," Jordan opines. "Let it be the situation it was."

After that vague statement, he continues: "and then move forward."

Jordan and Jenna

Jenna has offered serious evidence that she never sent those cheating text messages.

In addition to her statements and hiring an attorney, she offered up a third-party forensic report on her electronic devices and shared it with the world.

Apparently, that wasn't enough to convince Jordan that she is innocent in all of this.

Even so, Jordan says that he does not "want anybody to go and attack her."

That's good -- but an odd request from the man who publicly accused her of cheating and also publicly refused to believe her denials.

Jordan and Jenna Together

Jenna's rep, Steve Honig, recently made a statement that Jordan wasn't the picture-perfect soul mate he appeared on television.

Apparently he tried to make Jenna feel "insignificant and worthless."

"After the cameras stopped rolling," Honig says. "Jordan’s demeanor toward Jenna changed dramatically."

"He let it be known there was only room for one celebrity in the relationship," Honig says, and that "he was more successful and famous than her."

Honig says that Jordan made it clear to Jenna that "she would never make as much money as him or amount to anything in life."

"He continues to disparage her to this day," Honig laments. 

"As painful as this has been for Jenna," he says. "She is glad he showed his true colors before they were married and began building a life together."

"A comprehensive forensic examination of Jenna’s devices by an independent third-party expert," Honig begins.

Honig continues, sharing that the expert "has definitely confirmed none of the text messages in question came from Jenna’s phone."

The analysis included her iPhone, her iPad, and her iCloud storage -- and would have caught any deleted messages.

"Given all the conclusive findings of the forensic report," Honig concludes. "Jenna’s team is considering all options available to Jenna relating to the fraudulent texts."

This could be a legal battle for a while. Jenna wants to clear her name -- and know for sure who tried to ruin her reputation.

Jordan Kimball

At his special appearance on Dancing With The Stars, Jordan told Us Weekly that he felt that the timing of Jenna's rep's statement "was very odd."

Honig issued a response, saying: "I find the timing of his breakup with Jenna very odd."

Oooooh.

It doesn't look like this battle is going to end any time soon.

Kim Zolciak Gets Caught Photoshopping Her Kids, FREAKS OUT on Haters!

Just last month, Kim Zolciak was accused of photoshopping the butt of her 4-year-old daughter. Yikes.

Now, after new photos have surfaced that appear to show her kids before and after being digitally altered, Kim is blasting the accusations.

Kim calls the accusation "sick," but even some of her own fans are convinced that she's doing it.

Kim Zolciak kids photoshop accusation

An Instagram accounts called @wigzncigs is dedicated to exposing Kim Zolciak as an alleged fraud.

And they may have hit the jackpot.

They shared what they say are before and after photos of two of Kim Zolciak's very young children, Kaia and Kane.

Though the differences are almost imperceptible, it does appear that the photos were modified.

If you can't see the changes to both Kaia and Kane with the side-by-side images, perhaps seeing the contrast like this will help:

Kim Zolciak kids photoshop kaia and kane gif

"Check out the before & after," the non-fan page writes.

"Kaia's waist was taken in and her legs were made thinner," the caption reads. "Kane's ear was also made smaller."

It certainly appears that way.

But Kim, who has been accused of doctoring photos of her children in the past, took to social media to express her outrage -- and a firm denial.

Kim Zolciak Puts Her Hand Up

"People are f--kin SICK!!" Kim exclaims.

She demands in her tweet: "Get the f--k out here!!"

"No post was taken down," she asserts about the "before" photos.

"And," Kim continues. "No photo has been nor will ever be edited of my children!"

As for the accusations, Kim writes: "I will no longer stand for this bulls--t!"

Kaia and Kane Biermann

This is not Kim's first time being accused of this.

This Halloween photo of Kaia and Kane brought on accusations that she had digitally manipulated the curve of her daughter's butt.

Kaia Biermann, for the record, is four years old.

The idea of a mother being so obsessed with appearances that she tries to make her extremely young children look more "perfect" is stomach-turning.

Is this really what's happening?

Kim Zolciak: A Selfie

Even some of Kim Zolciak's own alleged fans seem to think so.

"I’d love to believe you," tweeted one person. "But I’ve seen a video of your IG pic/story, and it’s CLEARLY photoshopped-there are before and after shots. Sad, really."

Others were less gentle, tweeting: "The photo was 100% photoshopped lol."

Kim had defenders who sided with her, but her critics encouraged them to look at what they say is evidence of digital manipulation.

"Obviously you people haven’t seen the before and after," a tweeter wrote to Kim's defenders. "You can preach happiness and acceptance and joy...but damn girl, actions speak louder than words!"

Other fans spoke openly of their hope that her husband, Kroy, will step in and stop her from tweaking any more photos.

Kim Zolciak New Lips

As we mentioned, @wigzncigs is serious about taking down Kim Zolciak.

Their Instagram bio reads: "Exposing Kim Zolciak-Biermann and her family for the liars & frauds they are! Ask, Believe, Deceive."

The bio also links to, of all things, a change.org petition.

The petition aims to implore Andy Cohen to cancel Don't Be Tardy, on the grounds that they don't like Kim Zolciak and think she's fake.

Our first thought was that someone has way too much time on their hands.

NeNe Leakes Reaction Image

Our second thought was to half-jokingly wonder if NeNe Leakes is somehow behind this.

(She's not, but it would be so funny if she were using her massive paycheck to bankroll people to roast Kim)

But on a more serious note, if this "evidence" is somehow being faked or simply a misunderstanding, we hope that Kim can clear it up.

If Kim really is rounding out the butt and shrinking the ears of her very young children, though, that is ... super f--ked up.

It's one thing to have body image issues with yourself. It's another thing altogether to project that onto your own babies.

Tara Reid Flies Into Rage, Gets Booted from Airplane

Tara Reid may have resurrected her career by starring in the Sharknado franchise.

But the actress has now proven once again that there's something far scarier out there than the combination of a shark and tornado.

And that something is Tara Reid herself.

According to TMZ, People Magazine and other outlets, Reid flew into a rage prior to a recent Delta Airlines flight taking off, forcing the caption to give the boot to both her and her precious little dog.

(We guess it failed to offer much in the way of emotional support, huh?)

The viral incident took place on a flight bound for Las Angeles from New York City.

Onlookers told TMZ that Reid was upset and loudly complained because she was given the wrong seat.

From there, she whined a lot about not getting a pillow. 

Donning a black coat, a red beanie and carrying her dog in one arm, the footage featured on this page featured Reid being asked to leave the plane.

She's relatively calm, which is a stark contrast to how many witnesses claimed she was acting just before this camera started to roll.

The plane was apparently rolling toward takeoff when the caption turned it around at the last minute and told everyone on board that a passenger had been asked to depart due to a "disturbance."

“Delta apologizes to the remaining customers for the inconvenience and appreciates their patience as the situation was resolved,” spokesman Ashton Kang said, adding:

“The flight re-departed for New York following a short delay.”

Reid, of course, has run into her fait share of trouble over the years.

She's better known for her scandals and her seemingly odd behavior than nearly any role she's ever had.

Remember this drunk rant, for example?

Or the weird way she once showed up bruised and battered on Instagram?

Reid tells TMZ that she was angry because the woman in front of her reclined her seat and because she was under the impression that she had been assigned a window seat.

We've all been in those situations, of course.

But few of us have reacted so poorly that we got kicked off a frickin plane.

Check out the video here to see that fate befall Tara Reid.

Erica Mena, Love & Hip Hop Star, Arrested for Drug Possession

Erica Mena has been placed under arrest.

The Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta cast member was taken into custody on Friday after police arrived on the scene in response to a domestic dispute.

Erica Mena on VH1

According to TMZ, Mena and her boyfriend, Clifford Dixon, were both taken away by the cops after an argument got out of hand inside their Johns Creek, Georgia apartment.

Witnesses near the scene told authorities that Mena and Dixon had not only been arguing, but that the latter had kicked in a bedroom door in order to get to the former.

One of Erica and Cliff's roommates even told police that she/he heard someone get slapped upstairs, although no one actually saw any physical abuse take place.

Cops did not report any signs of an altercation on either party, either.

This is to say, neither Mena nor Dixon had any marks on their bodies at the time of the arrest.

Mena mug

Dixon was arrested for criminal trespass because Mena told cops the property was in her name.

Meanwhile, Erica was arrested for possession of marijuana, despite having less than one ounce of her at the time of the arrest.

She has since made bail.

Mena returned to Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta last season.

Prior to coming on board, she was a staple on Love & Hip Hop: New York.

mena

Other professional ventures for Mena include having written the books "Chronicles of a Confirmed Bachelorette" and "Underneath It All."

In August of 2017, it was announced that Mena would compete in the first season of VH1's Scared Famous, which premiered on October 23, 2017.

Mena was previously engaged to Bow Wow and wrote the following upon leaving the New York version of this Love & Hip Hop franchise:

I have fan base that now become my family! I can’t thank you all enough for following & riding this ride. You are all appreciated.

No matter what I’m always going to be Open and Real with you all. This chapter has ended but the real deal is the journey has just begun.

Four years ago became #MenaMonday.

I let the world in and it’s been a crazy ride since. I’ve always been open about who I am & my relationships just because I know my story was meant to be told. I’ve made many mistakes and I get judge[d] harshly.

Thank God I’m as tough and bold as I am because the truth is many are like me.

mena out

It's unclear whether this arrest will impact Mena's future on VH1.

We don't mean that she'll get fired for a little bit of weed, of course.

We mean she may very well get a raise!

Stay tuned to find out what transpires.

Jenna Cooper: Jordan Kimball Faked My "Cheating" Texts For Publicity! I Have Forensic Proof!

Jenna Cooper and Jordan Kimball's Bachelor in Paradise cheating scandal didn't end when they broke up.

While Jenna has fired back, saying that she's a victim of fraud, Jordan has all but accused her of blackmailing him through her attorneys.

Now, she is hitting back even harder, and accusing Jordan of having faked the text messages for publicity's sake.

Jordan and Jenna

Over the weekend, Us Weekly spoke to Jordan Kimball about this entire situation.

"It is what it is," the model states simply.

When it comes to the emails he shared that he clearly viewed as a blackmail attempt, he says: "I said nothing about it."

"The email was sent to me," Jordan explains. "I got phone calls from the firm."

"It was an attorney representing her," Jordan says, who told him to publicly exonerate Jenna or the firm would go public with what they know.

Jordan and Jenna Together

Jordan says that he's heard from her attorneys, but that's about as personal as it gets these days.

"I’ve heard nothing back" from Jenna, Jordan says. "And her family stopped -- I guess you could say bashing me online."

"They have said nothing," he says. "She has said nothing. It’s behind us."

"I no longer feel I need to defend myself," Jordan claims. "It is what it is."

But ... is it? Because Jenna released some evidence for the entire world to see.

Jenna Cooper

When other Bachelor ladies rallied to Jenna's defense, Lauren Burnham assured the world that she'd seen proof that Jenna wasn't a cheater.

It's not that people realistically believe that Reality Steve fabricated text messages out of thin air.

Instead, people believe that someone close to Jenna, someone who knew her texting style and phone number, faked them and sent them to him.

And Jenna's electronic devices got a clean bill of health -- with an examination that proves she never cheated.

"A comprehensive forensic examination of Jenna’s devices by an independent third-party expert, Jenna's publicist Steve Honig begins.

Honig continues: "has definitively confirmed none of the text messages in question came from Jenna’s phone."

"Given the conclusive findings of the forensic report," Honig says. "Jenna’s team is considering all options available to Jenna relating to the fraudulent texts."

Jenna Cooper program

Jenna's publicist's statement continues, and begins to paint a troubling picture of her former love.

"After the cameras stopped rolling, Jordan’s demeanor toward Jenna changed dramatically," Honig reveals.

"He let it be known there was only room for one celebrity in the relationship," Honig says.

Jordan reportedly made it clear that "he was more successful and famous than her, she would never make as much money as him or amount to anything in life."

"She was belittled and made to feel insignificant and worthless," Honig says. "He continues to disparage her to this day."

"As painful as this has been for Jenna," Honig concludes. "She is glad he showed his true colors before they were married and began building a life together."

Jordan and Jenna Photo

Protus3 is a Raleigh-based security service to which Jenna turned to prove her innocense. They examined her iPhone, iPad, and iCloud storage.

"An analysis of the messages and data ranging from June 11, 2017, through September 18, 2018, on all devices," the Protus3 report says.

The report continues, revealing that the test "did not reveal any of the text messages alleged to be created by Ms. Cooper."

As we mentioned, the analysis would have turned up any messages, even deleted ones, that she sent on any of her devices.

Protus3's analysis also showed that certain keywords showed up in Jenna's messages to Jordan and in the allegedly fabricated texts that make her look like a cheater.

Jenna and Jordan

Protus3 just reports as a third party on the contents of the examination, but Jenna's attorneys have made their theory clear.

They believe that Jordan faked the texts and then sent them to Reality Steve with enough details about Jenna to make the texts look authentic.

But, as Protus3 notes, screenshots -- no matter their source -- cannot be authenticated with the level of certainty that comes with screening a device.

It's not clear what they believe was Jordan's motive.

Was he allegedly trying to milk the Bachelor Nation for sympathy that could carry him forward in his reality career?

Was he just trying to end their relationship without appearing to the public as "the bad guy?"

Or is Jordan just another victim in all of this, and the texts were fabricated by someone else?

Antonella Barba, Ex-American Idol Star, Busted for Heroin

Antonella Barba was maybe the most controversial contestant in American Idol history.

And not much has changed for the former singer many years later.

idol, a

According to TMZ and other outlets, the Season 6 near- finalist was arrested on Thursday morning and charged with a felony.

She is being held in jail without bond because she allegedly tried to sell over 100 grams of heroin.

Yes, heroin.

Not many other details are available at the moment, but Barba is looking at significant jail time if this really is the crime she is accused of committing and if she is found guilty.

Here is her mug shot, courtesy of the Norfolk Sheriff's Department;

Antonella Barba Mug Shot

Despite finishing just outside the Top 12 on Season 6, Barba made numerous headlines in 2007 for a very different kind of scandal in which she found herself.

She gained notoriety for posing in a wet t-shirt in the fountain of the World War II Memorial in D.C. -- and also for allegedly having photos taken of her while she gave someone oral sex.

Barba continued to be voted on to subsequent rounds during her run on Idol, stirring up quite a debate over whether she was earning the favor of viewers for her singing talent...

... or for these more lewd and explicit exploits.

We've blurred out the most private part of this photo, but here's one of the pictures that got Barba in trouble back in the day:

a.barba

She was also arrested for shoplifting in New York City in 2011.

She was charged with two misdemeanors at the time.

Still, the following year, Barba appeared on an episode of Fear Factor.

She has also acted in a number of short films since... had a small role in 2017's All About the Money... and, earlier this year, she appeared on a "Where Are They Now?" segment on Jimmy Kimmel Live!

baraba image

No one from Barba's camp has commented on her arrest just yet.

In related news...

Fellow American Idol alum Haley Reinhart, - who also appeared on this same Jimmy Kimmel Live! segment- was arrested on one count of battery after getting into a bar fight in Chicago last year.

Reinhart was found guilty in February.

However, the judge agreed to strike the conviction from her record if she has no run-ins with the law in the next two years.

sn, barba

We'll update this story with more news as it breaks.

As far as we know, Barba remains behind bars right now, pending an upcoming hearing.

Let's hope she turns her life around.

Lauren Burnham: Jenna Cooper is NOT a Cheater!!

Last month, the Bachelor in Paradise finale was marred by a cheating scandal. Jenna Cooper and Jordan Kimball won ... and then all hell broke loose.

Alleged texts say that Jenna was cheating, but she swears that she's a victim of fraud -- and says she can prove it.

Now, she's being defended by none other than Bachelor Winner Lauren Burnham.

Burnham on a Boat!

So, remember how Bekah Martinez told the world that most of the women from The Bachelor had still kept in touch?

Well, several women from Arie's season, including Lauren Burnham, Jaqueline Turmbull, and Sienne Flemming, got together for a slumber party.

(Yes, these women had all dated Arie, yes, Lauren is his fiancee, and yes, Arie was apparently also there)

One of Arie's exes who was present was Jenna Cooper, who was eliminated in week 6 of the season.

These women are friends, so the gathering makes sense -- except to fans who think that Jenna is some sort of snake in the grass.

Jenna Cooper on IG stories party time

A fan commented on Instagram, writing: "Anyone else think it's so shady that they're all hanging out with Jenna?"

The comment concludes: "after she proved how terrible of a human she is?"

If you're wondering wait, when did she "prove" she's terrible? ... you are not alone.

"No spewing hate here, love," Lauren Burnham replied to the fan's comment.

"There are two sides to every story," Lauren reminds the commenter.

"And," Lauren says. "The only evidence I know of backs the fact that Jenna did not do what she's being accused of."

Lauren Burnham Defends Jenna Cooper on IG

"What's the evidence?" a curious fan demands to know.

Lauren clearly has a healthy set of boundaries (for a Bachelor star, anyway), because she doesn't cough up the goods.

"That's for her to release," Lauren replies.

She is absolutely correct -- we'll get into what that evidence may be in just a moment.

"It should be happening very soon," Lauren teases.

A lot of fans would be very happy to see solid proof instead of relying upon speculation.

Burnham, Lauren

Lauren reminds fans that she is not exactly the type to just decide who is innocent and who is guilty all willy-nilly.

"I am not one to jump on the bandwagon and take a side without solid evidence," Lauren affirms.

"I can tell you that her story is very compelling," Lauren adds. "And she has professional proof."

She then offers a worde of warning for fans who leapt to conclusions when this alleged cheating scandal first broke.

Lauren suggests: "I would just advise not to be so quick to publicly state opinions without knowing the whole story."

Jordan and Jenna

Jenna was accused of cheating after text messages were published which purportedly showed that Jenna was cheating on Jordan Kimball.

Those same texts indicated that she was planning on dumping him, which would have been humiliating after his Bachelor in Paradise proposal.

However, Jenna has insisted that, though the texts emulate her writing style, she didn't write them.

She has also taken the extra step of hiring an attorney in her quest to clear her name.

Jenna put her phone through a forensic program to prove that she has never sent any texts of the sort.

(Such a program would capture even deleted text messages)

Jenna Cooper is Sad

It is probably that forensic analysis to which Lauren is referring.

However, there may be more. Jenna's own attorneys have expressed the belief that Jordan himself may have fabricated the texts.

It is possible that this theory, expressed in a private email to him that Jordan then made public, was intended as a negotiating tactic or a bluff.

But it is also possible that Jenna's attorneys have uncovered further evidence -- of Jenna's innocence or even of Jordan's alleged guilt.

If Lauren is right, Jenna may air at least some of her evidence soon.

Bill Cosby: Pushing to Throw Out Conviction, Prison Sentence, and Judge

Bill Cosby has been sentenced to prison and will spend 3 to 10 years behind bars for the drugging and sexual assault of Andrea Constand.

... Or will he?

His attorneys are already appealing, and moving to throw out the sentence, the conviction, and even the judge.

Bill Cosby Booking Pic

Deadline reports that Bill Cosby's attorneys are asking to reconsider his sentence and even his conviction with a brand new trial.

"The defendant, William H. Cosby, Jr., moves this Court for a new trial in the interest of justice," the motion begins.

"Or at least," the motion asks, "For reconsideration and modification of the sentence imposed on September 25, 2018."

His attorneys are zeroing in on one particular ruling that the judge made when he denied bail.

The judge made this ruling to "protect the community." Cosby's attorneys believe that this ruling was incorrect.

Bill Cosby SUCKS

"For the reasons detailed in Mr. Cosby’s previously-filed motions for recusal," his attorneys write.

The motion adds: "(which are incorporated here by reference, without being repeated and set forth at length)."

"And," court documents continue. "For all the foregoing reasons, a reasonable observer could question the impartiality of the judge who imposed the September 25, 2018, sentence."

In other words, because Cosby is 81 and "legally blind," his attorneys believe that he is not a danger to anyone, despite his considerable resources.

"Accordingly," the motion claims. "Judge O’Neill should have recused himself from imposing sentence."

Bill Cosby, In Shame

Camille Cosby is also taking aim at the judge who presided over her husband's trial.

She is standing by him -- even though Cosby's accusers now outnumber their more than 50 years of marriage.

The real bad guy, she says, is the judge.

Camille is pushing to have the judge investigated for "misconduct" that she believes took place during the trial.

That's a very vague and extremely bold claim.

Bill Cosby in a Suit

Many have hailed Cosby's conviction and sentence as a sign that things are changing for survivors of sexual violence.

However, it is important to maintain perspective.

This trial was for the assault of one woman. In order to get this conviction, they had to hold two trials -- as a jury had deadlocked in 2017.

It took a second trial, following the great social awakening of the #MeToo movement, to get one conviction for Cosby.

Constand had reported her assault at the time, putting her in the minority of sexual assault survivors. There was documentation from it.

It seems unlikely that Cosby will ever see convictions or even trials for the dozens and dozens of other allegations.

Bill Cosby in Action

Some have suggested that Cosby's conviction should not be celebrated while so many other alleged predators roam free.

In part, because there is more work to do. But there is another side to this argument.

Some suggest that juries were more willing to see the once-beloved Cosby as a predator because he is black.

They wonder if Matt Lauer, who enjoyed a similar public perception before his downfall and disgrace, would have been convicted on similar evidence.

So far, that is speculation.

We certainly hope that no sex monsters escape justice because of the privilege attached to the color of their skin.

Bill Cosby on Way to Court

In Cosby's case, he had been accused of drugging and assaulting women for decades.

It was only a few years ago that more women came forward -- all because the allegations were brought up after Cosby criticized young black men for having sagging pants.

Before that, many had not been aware of the accusations, or had not given them much thought.

But when more and more women came forward to share their horror stories -- and others shared what they described as near misses -- public opinion turned against Cosby.

His downfall was years in the making. It is difficult to imagine that his judge was the lynchpin behind his conviction.

This sounds like a standard appeal that attorneys file when their client has no shortage of money with which to pay them. That doesn't mean that it will work.

Jordan Kimball: Jenna Cooper Is BLACKMAILING Me!

The sweet finale of Bachelor in Paradise was marred when a scandal broke out. Texts surfaced that appeared to show Jenna Cooper cheating on Jordan Kimball.

The two broke up, but it didn't end there -- Jenna is going to great lengths to prove that she's no cheater.

And now it's Jordan who's on the defensive, insisting that he didn't fabricate the alleged texts in the first place.

Jordan and Jenna Together

Jenna Cooper has hired a lawyer because she is that serious about proving that she did not cheat on Jordan.

Justin R. Apple reached out to encourage Jordan to publicly state that Jenna did not cheat on him, threatening to otherwise expose him.

Apple's stated theory was that Jordan himself had manufactured the texts of his alleged cheating.

Apple stated this in an email to Jordan, which Jordan then put on display for the world to see rather than backing down.

This means that Apple will likely proceed with his lawsuit, which he believes will expose Jordan for having framed Jenna as a cheater.

Jordan and Jenna

Jordan Kimball spoke to Entertainment Tonight on Sunday, October 7.

"I absolutely, 100 percent did not fabricate those text messages," Jordan announced.

Jordan doubled down on his defense, saying: "I’ll put my hand on the Bible for that."

He had chosen to do this instead of apologizing for rushing to judgment after the alleged texts surfaced.

Instead, he is showing the world exactly what Jenna's attorney is planning to do next.

Jenna Cooper Picture

Apple's email promised to move forward with a number of actions if Jordan failed to speak out to clear Jenna's name.

First, there was a promise to release texts that Jordan and Jenna had exchanged.

This would show how the allegedly fabricated texts are eerily similar to texts that Jenna had sent to Jordan.

Second, to file a lawsuit against Reality Steve, who is definitely not the bad guy in this story.

The purpose of the lawsuit is to attempt to force him to reveal his source for the text messages.

We wouldn't hold our breath on that suit's success.

Jordan and Jenna Photo

Apple warned Jordan to neither release the email to the public (which he then did) nor contact Jenna in response.

"I was absolutely blindsided by this,� Jordan explained to Entertainment Tonight.

“When I got this email, I called Mr. Apple. I left him a voicemail," Jordan says.

He continues: "Then, we got on the phone and he started shouting at me."

"In my mind, that isn’t OK …" Jordan says. "At this point, I have nothing to say to them."

Jordan Kimball

"I am trying to live my life and move on," Jordan says.

"I am a victim in this," Jordan affirms, adding: "I hope [Apple] enjoys the public eye."

Jordan shares how he really feels about Apple, saying: "I hope he is on the toilet sick over all this, calling his mother and doesn’t know what to do."

"[What he gave me is] an ultimatum," Jordan accuses. "This is not a good person I’m dealing with, and he’s messing with the wrong guy."

"Jordan Kimball is not walking into a courtroom,� Jordan concludes in the third person. “He ended the engagement over what he was presented with and he moved on."

Jenna and Jordan

It looks like there are a few possibilities here.

One, that Jenna cheated on Jordan but was so careful about doing so that even a forensic analysis of her phone doesn't show a trace of it.

In that scenario, Jordan would be reeling from emotional injury -- and Jenna would feel humiliated and guilty.

Two, that Apple's theory is correct, and Jordan fabricated text messages that show Jenna cheating.

He would have used his own texting history with Jenna as a basis for realistic texts, and then sent them to Reality Steve.

One can only assume that he did so in order to end the well-publicized engagement without losing face. That would be ... monstrous.

Jenna Cooper

But there is a third consideration, and it seems that Jordan, at least, may be a little too hot under the collar to truly consider it at the moment.

Absolutely anyone can fake text messages. But only someone who has seen Jenna's texts could reproduce them so accurately.

We're inclined to believe that Reality Steve is confident that his source is the real deal, so it's probably someone close to Jordan or to Jenna.

This third pary might, for whatever reason, have fabricated these texts and sent them in, possibly in an effort to sabotage this relationship.

There's no version of this that isn't heartbreaking. Jordan and Jenna really did seem to be in love. It's hard to imagine that they'll get back together.

Cardi B: Arrested for Assault!

Cardi B often talks about violence.

Remember the time she threatened to straight up murder Nicki Minaj?

But the artist now finds herself in a potentially huge amount of trouble due to an incident at a New York City strip club on August 29 in which she's accused of inciting actual violence.

Cardi B in Red

Cardi B turned herself into authorities in the Big Apple on Monday morning and was subsequently arrested and charged with two misdemeanors, assault and reckless endangerment.

She posed for mug shot taken and was fingerprinted; the whole bax of legal wax and everything.

The rapper is scheduled to be arraigned on October 29.

The arrest stems from the allegation that Cardi organized an attack on two bartenders (sisters Jade and Baddie Gi) at Angels Strip Club Queens, an incident during which both women were injured, but refused medical treatment.

So they clearly were not badly injured.

Cardi B Speaks on Instagram

The siblings have a longstanding beef with Cardi because the superstar believes Jade slept with Cardi's husband, Offset.

(Offset, of course, had three kids prior to getting together with Cardi has admittedly cheated on Cardi as well; so let's hope she doesn't start feuds with every woman who has ridden Offset raw. It may take a very long while.)

As The Hollywood Gossip wrote about this summer, Cardi B is accused of ordering members of her entourage to hurl bottles and chairs in the direction of the aforementioned bartenders.

Jade has said that five people close to Cardi also attacked her two weeks prior to this strip club confrontation.

Back in June, meanwhile, Cardi reportedly got in the faces of Jade and Baddie G at a hotel in Atlanta.

Cardi B at 2018 VMAs

A source close to Cardi tells TMZ the attack was "spontaneous" and was triggered after someone threw a drink.

They say nothing was premeditated and that the singer didn't enter the establishment with an intent on seeking revenge against one of Offset's previous sexual conquests.

But a lawyer for the alleged victims has said the following of Cardi B:

"She continues to threaten them and clearly thinks her celebrity status is going to get her out of this.

"But it doesn't matter if her name is Cardi B or Carl B ... if she commits violent assaults she will be brought to justice."

Cardi B in Lingerie and Pink Hair

Conversely, Jeff Kern, an attorney for the rapper, said outside a police station in Queens today that he’s “aware of no evidence� that Cardi B “caused anybody any harm."

The artist just performed at the Global Citizen Festival in New York’s Central Park on Saturday and turned herself in at the Flushing precinct a little before 10 a.m., according to local news outlets.

Her face was covered by several umbrellas as she left a vehicle and walked inside; she did not respond to reporters’ questions.

Cardi notoriously went after Minaj at a New York City Fashion event just under a month ago, as you can see here:

This is a woman who is clearly not afraid to get physical.

And who is apparently triggered by New York City for some reason.

We'll update this story with more news and/or information when it breaks.

Ashley Darby: My Husband Didn’t Grope that Man! It’s All Lies!

Ashley Darby is speaking out now that her husband Michael Darby has been accused of sexual assault.

Not only is the The Real Housewives of Potomac star standing by her man, she's claiming that charges have not even been filed.

She also announces that her husband has not been suspended by Bravo. Is she telling the truth?

Ashley Darby, Husband Michael Darby

Ashley Darby took to her Instagram Story on Saturday to affirm her support her embattled husband.

"No charges filed," she writes. "No arrest made."

"No Bravo suspension," she continues. "No worries."

She then promises fans: "We’ll keep you posted."

That is very interesting ... considering that two of those claims are in conflict with reports.

Michael Darby

TMZ's report, which we are inclined to believe, says that Darby has been charged with felony assault.

(He has also been charged with misdemeanor improper sexual contact)

He has also been suspended by Truly Original, the production company behind The Real Housewives of Potomac.

And he has been suspended by Bravo, who say that they have procedures to follow when allegations of this nature are made.

It is curious that Ashley would make an announcement that is contrary to what we've heard.

Ashley Darby and Michael Darby

As you may recall, these allegations -- reported to police within days of the October 1 incident -- were made by a cameraman, Orville Palmer.

According to his accusation, Michael Darby began by giving him what he perceived to be a flirtatious look.

On its own, that's a pretty subjective perception, and almost never a crime.

He says that Darby then grabbed and groped his butt.

He says that he put down the camera and demanded that Darby stop touching his butt.

Michael Darby and Ashley Darby

There was another alleged incident, days before, in which Michael Darby is said to have kicked him in the butt.

Kicking someone's butt is not necessarily sexual in nature, but consider this:

One: you should not be touching anyone's posterior without permission.

Two: kicking a butt might not be inherently sexual, but it's inherently assault. Stop it.

As we mentioned, Palmer filed charges just days after the October 1 incident.

Ashley Darby and Husband Michael Darby

Some may feel a surge of anger towards Ashley for standing by her husband when these allegations have been made.

We should remember that blame for misdeeds -- alleged or proven -- should not be misplaced to a person's family or loved ones.

Ashley, like so many people who are close to those who are accused of predatory behavior, is struggling to reconcile the man she knows with what she has now heard.

She may believe that this is over a vendetta against her husband, or somehow a ploy to make money.

Be angry with her for her claims that are contrary to reports, if you like, but not every wife is likely to file for divorce when allegations surface.

Ashley Darby Picture

What makes this story a little complicated is that this alleged sexual assault case is that this is a married man who is accused of groping another man.

Obviously, not all sex crimes are about attraction, but a lot of people find that surprising and even difficult to accept.

There have been other famous man-on-man assault stories. The most famous among them are probably Brendan Fraiser and Terry Crews.

No one has the right to touch another person without their consent.

It is neither "gay" nor "homophobic" to report a sexual assault committed by one man upon another. Crimes are crimes.

J.D. Madison: Alleged Victim of Southern Charm Star is Facing Threats

In August, Southern Charm star J.D. Madison was accused of sexual assault. The details of the allegations are ... heinous.

Another man was implicated, and it is that man's actions that are bringing this case back into the spotlight.

He is now accused of having shown up at the victim's house and threatening her.

J.D. Madison, Seated

J.D. Madison is accused of having drugged a woman and of having raped her once she lost consciousness.

According to FITSNews, another man implicated in the assault, chiropractor Jay Schwartz, showed up at the unnamed victim's home.

"I’ve been trying to contact you,� he reported told her while standing at her doorway.

He then apparently said: “I want to talk to you about what happened that night."

Instead of leaving when he realized that he was unwelcome, he apparently told her that he "has the messages from that night."

J.D. Madison

To make matters worse, when the woman tried to close her door, Jay allegedly placed his hand between the door and frame, propping the door open.

It is at this point that he allegedly repeated what he had told her.

Once he had finally departed, the woman contacted police -- which is absolutely the right thing to do under those circumstances.

Police then went to Schwartz's home and asked him about the encounter.

He reportedly agreed with the woman's "assessment of their conversation."

J.D. Madison Photo

Police then returned to her home where they gave her a copy of the No Trespassing order that had been issued to Schwartz.

Truth be told, an instruction to not trespass on someone's property is a very mild response, considering the circumstances.

A man implicated in the drugging and sexual assault of a woman then showing up at that woman's home and preventing her from closing her door?

That sounds like a terrifying ordeal.

It also sounds like a court could interpret it as witness tampering or witness intimidation.

Thomas Ravenel Mug Shot

Southern Charm fans cannot help of being reminded that J.D. Madison's good buddy Thomas Ravenel was recently arrested.

Ravenel was arrested for assault and battery, and those who have connected the dots believe that the charges stem from the allegations by Nanny Dawn.

She is one of two women who have accused Ravenel of sexual assault.

Others have accused him of alarming behavior, saying that he seems like a perfect gentleman ... right up until he becomes someone else altogether.

Thomas Ravenel will not be returning to Southern Charm for Season 6.

Thomas Ravenel at the Reunion

J.D. Madison was never a star of Southern Charm in the way that Ravenel was.

Instead, Madison had a recurring role -- but that role was ongoing for the first five seasons of the series.

Some are asking if reality television in particular has a problem -- if there is something about the genre that makes bad men gravitate towards it.

We understand the arguments, but we are not so sure.

Maybe, as more men are coming to realize, there are just a lot of terrible, predatory men out there. Not most men, but too many.

Perhaps some of them being reality stars is just a statistical inevitability.

Michael Darby, Real Housewives of Potomac Star, Accused of Sexual Assault

Michael Darby, the husband of Real Housewives of Potomac cast member Ashley Darby, has been accused of sexual misconduct.

According to TMZ, the Bravo reality TV star, allegedly grabbed and groped a cameraman on September 1 while filming an episode of the cable network series.

Michael Darby

The cameraman is named Orville Palmer.

After the incident, he claims that he turned around and Darby gave him "a flirtatious look" and told the star to stop.

He then went and told his supervisor what happened.

People Magazine, meanwhile, has confirmed via court record that Darby has been charged with felony assault and misdemeanor improper sexual conduct.

This is a charge with maximum punishment of 11 years in prison.

Will he receive such a sentencing? It's way too early to say for certain right now.

But this isn’t the first time Darby has allegedly engaged in such behavior.

Michael Darby and Ashley Darby

On a Season 1 episode of this Real Housewives franchise, costar Gizelle Bryant raised her concerns to Darby’s wife after she said she saw Darby touch the backside of another man.

“I need to ask you ladies, I’m on the dance floor and your husband is squeezing Andrew’s butt,� Bryant said to Ashley at the time.

“Ya’ll, it’s a joke,� Ashley replied.

“Most men don’t like other men who are not gay squeezing their butts,� Bryant said in return.

“Maybe Robyn [Dixon] and Gizelle should be worried about the men in their lives, or lack their of, and leave Michael and me alone,� Ashley later said to the camera.

“So you’re not disturbed that Michael was groping another man’s butt?� Dixon asked.

“My man has sex with me, he loves me and he gives it to me good,� Ashley responded, making all viewers cringe and adding on air:

“So quite frankly, whatever he does in joking manners is not a reflection of my man’s sexuality. You’re reading into it so far.�

darbys

The question now, of course, is not whether Michael Darby is gay.

It's whether he broke the law and will go to jail for it.

Ashley is 30 years old and Michael is 59 years old.

They have been featured on the Bravo program since Season 1 in 2016 and their relationship has been a prominent storyline on the show.

The pair nearly called it quits over an argument about Ashley helping out her mother financially in Season 2.

During the Real Housewives of Potomac Season 3 reunion, Ashley revealed she suffered a miscarriage.

And she recently revealed in BravoTV.com’s Housewife to Housewife series that the duo are still trying to have kids.

90 Day Fiance: Scottie Deem Charged with Child Molestation

Angela and Michael are one of the new couples on 90 Day Fiance: Before The 90 Days. They've both raised a few eyebrows.

But while Angela Deem's recent DUI arrest is troubling, her daughter has been indicted on charges that are infinitely more serious.

Scottie Deem, Angela's adult daughter, has been indicted on 13 counts of child molestation.

Scottie Deem, 90 Day Fiance still

According to documents obtained by People, Scottie Deem was arrested on Sept. 27, 2017, in Hazlehurst, Georgia (yes, that's how Hazlehurst is spelled).

She was charged with aggravated child molestation and aggravated sodomy.

According to the indictment, she was charged with 11 counts of child molestation, one count of aggravated child molestation, and one count of statutory rape.

These charges stem from alleged incidents that took place between July 1 and August 31 of 2017.

This is ... grim and upsetting.

Scottie Deem selfie

On Sept. 28, 2017, Scottie was released on $38,700 bond just one day after her arrest, which tells you a lot about how seriously the justice system takes crimes against children.

For what it's worth, she was instructed to avoid any contact with children and to also avoid any public areas where children are likely to be (so, playgrounds, for one thing).

Scottie is a mother herself (Angela is only 53, but actually has six grandchildren), so we assume that this condition of bond made things complicated for her family.

It was not until nearly one year later, on Sept. 12, 2018, after prosecutors had built their case, that Scottie was indicted on all 13 counts.

Scottie Deem

Court documents accuse her of performing acts upon an underage male victim, including sodomy, oral sex, and "an indicent act in the presence of" 5 children who were also underage.

The indictment suggests that her suspected victim is a boy of under 16, but his age -- and of course, identity -- remain unknown.

Though Scottie's attorney has refrained from commenting, her next court date is Monday, October 1, and it is reported that she will plead not guilty.

Scottie has appeared multiple times during Angela's story on 90 Day Fiance: Before The 90 Days, even though it is believed that she filmed these scenes following her arrest.

That may mean that Scottie's family is either not fully aware of the charges against her, or doesn't care. And some fans have questions for TLC, too.

Angela Deem

90 Day Fiance is not the only show on which Angela and Scottie have appeared together.

Twice, the mother and daughter have appeared on Maury (of course) because, both times, Angela accused Scottie of having a different baby daddy for her young daughters.

"She's a good woman; she ain't a hooch," Angela insisted on screen while also insisting that her daughter's baby daddy was other than who she claimed.

Angela had strongly suggested that Scottie was sex-crazed, which at the time got laughs. It sounds a lot more serious in light of these charges.

For the record, on both Maury appearances, Scottie was vindicated by DNA, which showed that Terry was the baby daddy of her daughters.

Scottie Deem selfie

Scottie is scheduled to be arraigned on Monday at 9:30am.

Since she reportedly plans to enter a plea of not guilty, many are concerned that her alleged victim and perhaps other underaged individuals who were witnesses will be dragged through the agony of a trial.

TLC does not have a comment on Scottie's arrest.

However, Scottie Deem will no longer appear on 90 Day Fiance: Before The 90 Days.
