Emily Simpson SLAMS Kelly Dodd for Vicious Attack on Husband!

Though viewers saw Vicki Gunvalson flip out on The Real Housewives of Orange County, she wasn't the only Housewife to get a little hot under the collar.

When Kelly Dodd criticized Emily Simpson's husband -- when she called him a "b--ch" -- Emily lashed out, even threatening to kill Kelly.

Emily cooled off and apologized, and she's owning up to her words and actions. But she says that she's the only one who's doing so.

"I am in no way proud of my behavior at Tamra’s party," Emily admits in a Bravo blog post.

In her own defense, Emily says: "I feel like any wife who respects her marriage and her husband would have become as irate as I did."

"However," Emily adds. "I am the ONLY one taking any responsibility for my own actions that evening."

"And let’s be honest," Emily says, preparing to school her co-star. "For a 'death threat' to be actionable, the other party has to have an imminent and reasonable fear that their life is in jeopardy."

"The fact that Kelly continued to scream, 'Hit me! Hit me!' and was laughing means she was not scared for her life," Emily reasons.

She says that Kelly has been targeted Emily's words so that she does not have to look inward.

"Kelly’s constant focusing on what I said that night is simply a deflection from dealing with her own abhorrent behavior," Emily says.

"I have to say I’m quite disappointed in the other ladies," Emily continues.

Emily asks: "Did anyone else notice that Tamra, in her last blog, says Shane likes to cause drama when all he did was stand at a table and have a nice, quiet conversation with Steve?"

Tamra's last blog was more or less all about accusing Shane of being dramatic.

Emily spies hypocrisy in Tamra's accusations.

"Yet she makes ZERO mention of Kelly’s behavior," Emily points out. "Can Shane ever catch a break? Is he ever allowed to speak?"

Emily then points out that Shane was in a no-win scenario.

"If he said nothing, he would be attacked for being spineless," Emily imagines. "If he speaks up, he’s attacked for causing drama."

"At the very least, it is laughable that the queen of 'That’s my opinion!' is telling Shane to stay out of it," Emily says, referring to the famous meme of Tamra screaming.

Emily Simpson for Season 13

"I am happy that Kelly and I had the opportunity to sit down face to face and work it out," Emily writes.

Emily continues: "I truly believe you can work things out by owning your own actions, forgiving, and moving on."

"I feel that we both said what we wanted to say," Emily says. "And we both took responsibility for our own part in the evening."

Emily adds: "I even texted Kelly after meeting with her and reiterated how I was happy that we chatted and worked things out."

Emily Simpson and Husband Shane Simpson

Despite that peacemaking, Emily points out that Kelly hasn't given up on her insistence that Shane is a "b--ch."

It's part of human nature for people to get upset and defensive when their loved ones are targeted for criticism and ridicule.

And it goes with the Real Housewife franchise's territory for people to have explosive arguments on camera. Viewers expect it.

It's how the stars respond after the fact that shows fans what their character is really like. Emily, at least, is owning what she did and what she said.

We do hope that, in the future, Emily avoids issuing any death threats. It's not cool.

Farrah Abraham Tests Positive for Barbiturates, Freaks the Eff Out

We already told you about Farrah Abraham's barely coherent denials that she's either a porn star or a junkie. No one rants like Farrah rants.

Well, as you'll see in the clip that we've included, she gets to see the results of her drug test on Face The Truth.

Farrah tests positive for barbiturates, and to absolutely no one's surprise, she does not handle it well.

Farrah abraham rolls her eyes deep in thought

On Face The Truth, Judge Mary Chrzanowski prefaces the results with a very important disclaimer.

"I’d like to first say before I give the results that some tests we can take and be very specific about what the drug is -- such as cocaine, such as marijuana," Scary Mary explains. "And others it’s more of a generalization.”

Then come the results. While Debra Danielsen's drug test came back negative, Farrah was another story.

“She did test positive for barbiturates," Judge Mary shares. "But that could be a prescribed drug. So, if her doctor legally prescribed a barbiturate for her, that’s fine."

Farrah appears to be shocked, saying: "I’m sorry, what?"

Farrah abraham is rendered speechless

It's up to host Vivica A. Fox to break it down for Farrah.

"She said that, basically, you tested positive," Vivica explains. "But that could have been the result of you being -- listen, listen -- before you go, just listen."

Farrah protests: "I’m confused."

"Just listen to me baby,” Vivica urges her. “That could’ve been something that you got from a doctor, that maybe you were prescribed -- a muscle relaxer or something like that. But, you did test positive for a barbiturate."

This is where we'd explain what a barbiturate is, but Dr. Judy Ho beat us to the punch.

"OK, so Farrah," she explains. "A barbiturate is a central nervous system depressant. There’s some prescribed medications, so maybe you can show me your list of medications later and we can take a look."

Farrah abraham appears on face the truth

While Dr. Judy Ho is trying to help diffuse the situation, Farrah is growing increasingly upset ... and starts spinning conspiracy theories.

"So," Farrah says. "I don’t think either that’s mine, and I have to just say, did someone confuse something?"

"I have to be that blunt," Farrah says. "I have to be that blunt at this moment in my life up here. I’m sorry if it sounds so crazy.”

“Or if someone," Farrah begins to accuse. "I am so laughing out loud right now."

Vivica has to poke fun at that, saying: "Let me tell you ‘LOL,’ did you think that, what, one of us just went and peed in a cup for you and made you just come up with a barbiturate test?"

"No," Farrah says. "I’m asking you what the hell’s going on by you saying that if I’m not taking it?"

That is ... a very Farrah Abraham style of sentence.

Farrah abraham yells on face the truth

Dr. Judy Ho asks: "Do you take any, like, aids for sleep or anything like that?"

Farrah replies: "No."

"OK," the doctor says. "Any mood stabilizers, or –"

Nada, Farrah insists.

"Nothing like that?" Dr. Judy Ho asks. "You have no other prescriptions?"

Farrah says that she does not.

Farrah abraham and debra danielsen on face the truth

At this point, Judge Mary Chrzanowski no longer seems entertained by Farrah's denials.

Scary Mary says: "Let’s just say it was a false positive and leave it at that, because we’re not gonna win with her."

This is just supposed to be a way out, to end the dispute, the equivalent of saying "yes dear" to your family to avoid conflict.

Farrah seems to miss Judge Mary's meaning, and asks why the test gave a false positive -- and is clearly the only person in the room who doesn't understand that they're just humoring her protests.

Dr. Judy tries to tell her to follow up with her doctor, but Farrah rambles over her, declaring her intent to "follow up with the producers who actually initiated this."

Yikes.

Farrah abraham tests positive for barbituates freaks the f k out

Floribama Shore Recap: The Stalker Returns

Just when the cast of Floribama Shore gets it together, something happens that drives them further apart. 

The latest installment of this MTV hit picked up mere moments after Jeremiah learned of his grandfather's death. 

There were tears, fights and more tears, and we're going to unpack all of the big developments from the episode right here. 

Everyone rallied around Jeremiah to make sure that he felt at ease, and Candace said a prayer for him and his family before he exited the house to be with his family. 

Before his exit, however, he wanted to hit the bar with his roomies and have a drink to celebrate his grandfather's life. 

Everyone made their way to The Salted Goat. Yes, that's actually the name of the bar. It's ridiculous, but the cast is probably barred from every other fine establishment in Florida, so they had to make do. 

While most of the houseguests were upset, and drinking slowly, Nilsa partied a little too hard when she laid eyes on her ex-husband's friend. 

It resulted in her running backward and forward to the bar to get some shots. It did not go unnoticed by the others, who were under the impression this was a quiet family night. 

Nilsa Prowant

Things got worse when a man appeared at the table asking about the cast. Kirk and Codi were happy to answer questions, but Nilsa was rude as hell. 

"Bye, bitch," she yelled while waving her hand at the man. 

She continued to be rude, and the man ultimately left the situation red-faced. 

Back at the house, Nilsa flat-out refused that she was rude to anyone, and even asked the following:

"What bar?" 

This further irked her friends because they were only in one bar the whole night. Nilsa denied that she was drunk, and got especially mad when her BFF Aimee did not defend her. 

Aimee, Floribama Shore

Aimee was right not to defend her. Nilsa was in the wrong and all the others wanted was for her to own it, and they could move on. 

But Nilsa called her friend, Shayla, and got ready to leave the house. The only thing that kept her there was a hug from Kortni (of all people!). 

Nilsa still played dumb the next morning, but Aimee said she was not ready to forgive her because the man was friendly, and that it's no way to treat a nice person. 

Jeremiah made his exit, but Kortni put a letter in with his packed lunch for the road. She told him that she would always be there for him. 

That was enough to confuse Jeremiah because he knows there's a burgeoning romance there, but he needs to decide whether he wants to leave the one night stands behind and get in a relationship. 

Kortni Gilson on Instagram

In a real shocker, Codi and Jeremiah managed to put their feud aside. As you will recall if you watch Floribama Shore online, Codi's grandfather died last year, so they bonded over that. 

It's amazing, but these two were so against each other earlier in the summer, but if they manage to put it aside, something good will come of it. 

The ladies went away on an all-female trip, leaving Kirk, Codi and Gus to do their own thing. 

The boys went to a bar and Gus opened up about his issues growing up. He recalled the time he found his mother sleeping with another man, and it paved the way for his father to leave with another woman. 

Kortni Gilson Poses

It was heartbreaking, but the biggest shocker was saved for the final scenes:

Logans Fairbanks aka Kortni's stalker left flowers, a letter and images on the doorstep of the house at 3 am. 

How will Kortni react to her stalker's return? 

We'll find out next Monday at 10/9c. 

The Real Housewives of Orange County Recap: Vicki Gunvalson Flips Out

Vicki Gunvalson and Kelly Dodd's friendship might never be the same again. 

Monday's episode of The Real Housewives of Orange County picked up in the aftermath of the fight that found new housewife, Emily Simpson, threatening to kill Kelly. 

But Vicki wanted to know how her boyfriend, Steve Lodge, wound up being put on blast. If you watch The Real Housewives of Orange County online, you know that Kelly was livid to learn that Steve was friends with her ex-husband. 

Vicki Gunvalson Waves a Knife

For Kelly, it was like a betrayal, and it was made worse that her then-BFF Vicki failed to see the issue with all of it. 

Gunvalson unpacked what went down with Tamra Judge and Emily. 

"Kelly thinks Steve's mad at her, and I don't know what's going on," Gunvalson solemnly said to her friends. "And now, Steve doesn't want anything to do with her."

"Shane neither," said Simpson as though anybody cared whether her pot stirrer husband would be friends with the newest cougar in Orange County, adding "he doesn't have time for it."

In all honesty, Shane was the one who butted in when Dodd was trying to get the answers from Steve, so if anything, he should be apologizing to Kelly for trying to sink her storyline to get one of his own. 

Emily Simpson for Season 13

Emily then went on to say that she was wrong about the way she reacted to Kelly. 

"I probably shouldn't have said, 'I'm going to kill you, but obviously it's a figure of speech," she said, trying to defend her actions. 

"[Kelly] said the entire time, 'I just wanna go talk to Steve and fix it,'" added Tamra of the whole scenario. 

"She doesn't give a rat's a— about Steve, and I guarantee you she wants to see our relationship fold because she doesn't want anyone happy," Gunvalson balked, adding:

"Miserable people like miserable people. I was there."

That's when Tamra opted to light the fuse on the dynamite and secure her contract with the show for another season. 

Tamra Judge for Season 13

"She said that Steve is only with you for your money," she said while acting like it was not going to cause another war between the housewives. 

"I thought it appropriate to tell Vicki about what's being said because the worst thing in this group is a rumor going to another person, another person, another person and not the person who's directly involved," Tamra said in defense of her actions. 

"Of course Kelly says that!" Gunvalson screamed as she stopping chopping vegetables.

"Shame on her for talking about my relationship. It's bulls— that everybody's always after what I have! Leave me alone! And by the way, I don't have that much money."

For what it's worth, we did get to see Kelly and Tamra have that conversation earlier in the episode. 

Kelly Dodd for Season 13

“Do you think that guy is hitting it and quitting it?� Kelly asked, of Steve to Tamra.

“My friend was dating the girl that Steve was dating. He told the girlfriend that he’s only using Vicki for money. Swear to God. Dinero! Money talks and bulls— walks.�

“In my book, Steve’s a bad guy,� she added. “He’s hiding something. And everyone should know what kind of a person he is.�

While Tamra was trying to imply she was being nice to Vicki by telling her about the earlier comments, there was also footage that suggested she, too, was not taken in by Steve. 

“She doesn’t love him,� Judge said during a group dinner sans Gunvalson. “I’m sorry, she does not love that man.�

Never one to come to a party without some proof, she reminded the ladies of Shannon's matchmaker.

Tamra Judge, Bikini Top and See-Through Pants

“When I was talking with the matchmaker with her, she was like ‘Maybe I should go to him too?'� Judge recalled.

While everyone seemed to be against Gunvalson's relationship, it was all playing out swimmingly for the cameras. 

“You better not let me down,� she told Lodge as they celebrated her birthday.

“I feel great at 56. It’s been a bumpy couple last three years, but now that Steve’s in my life, I finally feel like I’m at peace.�

 “I don’t need a man for money, and he doesn’t need me for money,� she continued. “I don’t care about stuff. I care about the person.“

Vicki Gunvalson for Season 13

"I would date a trash collector if that’s who I fell in love with.�

Lodge seemed to agree. “I think in her mind she feels, ‘I’m successful I don’t need another man’s money, so I’m going to fall in love not because he has money,’ � he said. “Unlike some other people we know.�

That last little bit of word salad was very likely a jab at Kelly. 

Oh yes, it's on.

Ami Brown Undergoes Cancer Screening: Is She Finally Cured?

On Sunday's new episode of Alaskan Bush People, Gabe Brown risked life and limb while building up the new homestead.

But many of the Brown family's thoughts were on the well being of their mother, Ami Brown, who had to travel to the hospital.

Ami beat the odds once before. ... Has her cancer returned?

Ami Brown in Season 8

On Sunday night's Alaskan Bush People, Ami had to leave the new homestead for another exam to make sure that her cancer was not trying to make a comeback.

"As far as returning to the doctor," Amy said to the camera. "I wish it was already over."

We all wish that Ami Brown's cancer battle had ended with her being totally cancer-free.

"We're all questioning what the results will be," Ami admits. "But whatever it is, it is."

Though Ami beat the odds just by surviving, she will likely need to be screened every few months for the rest of her life.

Ami explained that the cancer remains, but not the threat that it was a year ago.

"Well, the cancer ain't all the way gone," Ami admits. "But in the essence, yes it has abated."

Ami continues: "And we're fighting it, and we're winning."

"And this mountain and this new home gives us new energy every day," she says, full of hope.

"And," Ami concludes. "Every day we accomplish and every day we're safe."

That is a wonderful sentiment and a good mantra to repeat to herself.

Gabe Brown Defies Death

As Ami headed off to the Los Angeles hospital, her eldest daughter, Bird, lamented that she was left behind.

"I wish that I could have gone with them," Bird admits.

"There wasn't a doctor's visit that I wasn't there," Bird explains. "So it's hard to not go."

"Especially," Bird continues. "What if something happens?"

"And it will definitely be harder to work," Bird adds. "Because I don't know what the test results are going to be."

Billy Brown on Season 8

"If she comes back clear this time..." Billy says hopefully. "It's finally gone."

To him, that would make their lives just about perfect.

"We got plenty of space, we're all together ..." Billy says. "And we believe in Jesus."

Speaking of Jesus, Bam Bam gave his mother a gift for her journey -- a beautiful ceramic cross.

"It's our tradition giving something back and forth," he explains.

Ami Brown with Her Son

Like his sister, Bird, Bam Bam explains that he feels a knot of anxiety when his mother goes in for a check-up.

"There's a pit in the bottom of your stomach to wait and wonder what's going on and what the test results are," he explains.

Bam Bam is anxious, "but we have to stay here and do our best to build things up while they're gone."

"And," Bam Bam concludes. "Just focus on the work we need to do."

The next episode is expected ot reveal to fans and viewers the results of Ami's screening.

In real time, however, we know that it's only been a few weeks since Ami Brown celebrated a birthday that her family had feared she'd never live to see.

Mackenzie McKee: MTV Is FINALLY Letting Me Tell My Story!

Poor Mackenzie McKee has been totally screwed over by MTV, getting considered and even filmed for Teen Mom OG and Teen Mom 2 but ultimately passed over for both.

Mackenzie is getting one consolation prize -- a Where Are They Now? special to show that unaired footage and catch fans up on her life.

That special is coming out in a matter of days.

Mackenzie McKee Special Preview

Mackenzie McKee took to Instagram to share this behind-the-scenes glimpse.

"Next Wednesday, tune in for a special edition of #TeenMomOG: ‘Where Are They Now?’" she writes in the captions.

She says that it is in this special "where you’ll see what I’ve been up to since Teen Mom 3!"

A lot of fans would have liked to have seen her get more air time than one special, of course.

"It all begins at 9/8c on @MTV," her caption concludes.

Mackenzie McKee with Mom

As the good folks at The Ashley reported, a lot of what we'll see in this upcoming special could have made it on to Teen Mom 2.

"MTV is gathering footage just in case Jenelle doesn’t sign on," an insider revealed.

If you'll recall, Jenelle Evans was holding out on continuing the show after her terrible husband was fired for saying some vile things about the LGBTQ+ community on Twitter.

The plan was to do so as a contingency so that "they can add Mackenzie’s story into ‘Teen Mom 2.’"

"If [Jenelle] does sign on," the insider said at the time. "They will probably use the new footage in Mackenzie’s mom’s special."

Mackenzie McKee is Strong

Ultimately, Jenelle decided that that sweet, sweet Teen Mom money was more important than the pride of her dreadful husband, and Mackenzie was left out in the cold.

Something similar happened with Teen Mom OG. Mackenzie could have replaced Farrah, but clearly MTV wanted someone as awful as Farrah -- which is how we wound up with Bristol Palin.

Farrah's mother said that viewers wouldn't accept Mackenzie, which is more or less what you'd expect to hear from Farrah's mom.

Teen Mom OG also cast Cheyenne Floyd, doubling down on Mackenzie's status as a perpetual runner-up. And she noticed.

"I’ve been done real dirty this year let’s just say that…" Mackenzie tweeted.

Mackenzie McKee, Black Bikini Photo

Mackenzie spoke in a video on social media, admitting: "This year has been a bad year.�

A huge part of that has been Mackenzie's mother's cancer battle, but some of it has been all business.

“I have been screwed over in every way possible," Mackenzie says. "I have let people walk all over me."

"I’ve been promised stuff and people didn’t keep [those promises]," Mackenzie adds.

"It’s just been a bad year," Mackenzie concludes. "And I’m not just talking about one specific thing…"

Mackenzie McKee Abs

Still, Wednesday night's special will at least be something.

But considering how life-changing a Teen Mom salary can be, we absolutely understand Mackenzie's disappointment.

There was even the suggestion that MTV was put off by Mackenzie's mom having cancer, though we'll of course see her mom in the special.

What really has to sting is that Cheyenne Floyd never even had a child until she was in her twenties -- which is normally laudible, but in this case, makes her a puzzling choice.

Perhaps, if interest in this special is high enough, Mackenzie will get cast next time there's an opening. So, you know, whenever Jenelle ragequits the series or gets fired or sent to jail or otherwise becomes unavailable to film.

Big Brother Spoilers: Who Will Angela Send Home?

We're down to the final five houseguests on Big Brother Season 20. 

Tyler, Kaycee, Angela, Sam, and JC have defied the odds and made it to the final weeks of the game. 

But who is being evicted in fifth place, just one week ahead of the season finale? 

Angela Rummans Promotes Big Brother

Angela secured the HOH win, and that meant Level Six had the power to control the result of yet another eviction.

This was a crucial HOH to win because JC was planning on targeting Angela and Kaycee, so it would have been fun to watch whether he actually managed to pull it off. 

Angela wasted no time in nominating Sam and JC for eviction. She admitted that she got a lot of blood on her hands and that there was no way the jury would vote for her to win against either of them. 

It made sense, but there was still a veto to play. That played out on Saturday, and Kaycee managed to win. 

With that, it matched Kaycee's fourth veto win of the summer. It's no easy feat, but Kaycee definitely started playing the second half of the game. 

Kaycee Clark

With her win, it meant that Level Six also had control of the nominations for the week. Simply put, the majority alliance has been steamrolling the competition all summer. 

That does not look set to change before finale night. 

As things stand now, Angela wants to send Sam out of the house, and Tyler and Kaycee seem to be on board with that. 

There was a bit of pushback from Tyler because he wanted JC gone over the way he reacted to Brett's exit. 

Tyler has been playing everyone in the house, offering up final two deals like they're going out of fashion, and JC is on to him. 

Sam Bledsoe

The feeds will likely go down on Tuesday as the special Wednesday eviction is filmed, but we're looking at a 2-0 vote to evict Sam unless anything changes. 

What are your thoughts on this?

Hit the comments below. 

Big Brother Recap: Who’s in Danger?

Brett is out, but who's next?

The stakes are at an all-time high as Level Six is very close to having the remaining three members make up the final three of Big Brother Season 20. 

JC knew he was close to eviction after Angela and Tyler took Brett out of the game during the double eviction. He knew there was something amiss, and also that Tyler was not to be trusted. 

BBFlix Competition on Big Brother

We quickly learned that Brett met up with Tyler during the double and Tyler played along with the plan to get either Angela or Kaycee out of the house. 

That explained why Brett was so blindsided to be put on the block, to the point that he couldn't say much during his final plea for safety. 

For JC, he got scared during the double that he was going to be taken out, but Tyler was adamant that JC should trust him. 

As we know, it worked, but that's not stopping JC from wondering how long he has left in the game. 

Sam also did some damage control for her hurtful comments towards Angela, presumably because Angela was still in the game and was in good standing with Tyler. 

Sam Bledsoe

While Angela accepted, she said in the diary room that "this bitch is going to send your ass home." Wouldn't it be hilarious if Sam won the HOH, and actually sent Angela home?

That would be a blindside that would sway the jury in Sam's favor in the finale. 

When Tyler tried to quell JC's fears, it was obvious JC was mad. 

“I didn’t know you were working that close to the girls,� he yelled, but Tyler was adamant the girls would be targeting Sam for eviction. 

When all is said and done, Angela secured another competition win, and it was her third HOH win of the summer. 

Angela Rummans Smiles

Angela was open and honest about who she was targeting: Sam. While JC is the bigger threat, it seems Angela wants Sam out of the equation in case Tyler takes Sam instead of her at the end. 

However, Tyler worried that JC could be the one to flip the tables on him and got to work to get him made the target. 

"I really need to start thinking about who I want to be sitting next to if I can get to the end,� he revealed to the diary room. 

JC continued to self-destruct and yelled to Tyler that he should win the veto, save him, and naturally, Kaycee would be on the block. 

With that, the houseguests were treated to a performance by Bebe Rexha, but it was obvious there was a lot of tension in the house. 

Angela Rummans

Angela closed the episode by nominating JC and Sam, noting that she could not win against either of them because she has not played the most loyal game. 

She has a point, despite the competition wins, she's one of the most unlikable houseguests in the history of the series. 

What do you think of all of this?

Alaskan Bush People Sneak Peek: Gabe Brown Risks Life and Limb!

Alaskan Bush People has been destroying Keeping Up With The Kardashians' ratings, and it looks like this new episode will be no different.

In this sneak peek, Gabe Brown takes huge risks as the Browns build a new structure on their property, scaring his siblings half to death.

Noah also comes to visit in the new episode, revealing a serious health problem that required surgery.

Alaskan bush people family photo

In the video that we've included, viewers can see Gabe standing on a piece of construction equipment and wielding a chainsaw.

"The next step is now Gabe just needs to cut off the top of the poles," Bird Brown explains.

"He’s just going to stand in the bucket of the skid-steer," Bird describes.

She reveals who will be operating this dangerous equipment, adding: "and Rain’s going to raise him up."

It's always reassuring to see a 15-year-old operating heavy machinery.

"I’m not normally serious," Bird acknowledges. "But right now it is super serious,”

“It is actually pretty dangerous," Bird admits.

"It’s actually the most dangerous things we’ve done on the job."

Bam Bam Brown adds: "That does not look incredibly safe."

His opinion is pretty clear. As you can see in the clip, he's standing a considerable distance away from the action.

Alaskan bush people construction gif 02

In addition to Gabe risking life and limb (and his baby sister's mental health for the next half-century) to shorten some stilts, this weekend's episode promises another development.

In August, Noah Brown married Rhain Alisha in a small, moving wedding ceremony.

On this weekend's episode, Noah "returns to the pack," as they say, visiting the new family homestead in rural Washington to see his parents.

His presence is reassuring to his father, Billy Brown, who is happy to see him.

His arrival is also a tremendous comfort to Ami, who states that she feels more secure with all of her children around her.

Gabe brown defies death

Noah also makes a startling confession about his health.

During his time away from his family, his body began to become inexplicably bloated.

As it turns out, as is usually the case with a sudden change in body size, there is a medical explanation.

In Noah's case, it was his gall bladder.

He had to have his abnormally large gall bladder removed, and his torso still bears the stretch mark from the sudden gain in weight that his endocrine system foisted upon him.

We're sure that some parts of this coming episode of Alaskan Bush People is just theatrics for the camera. That goes with the territory on any reality show.

We have no doubts that Noah's family knew about his gall bladder being removed before he told them on camera and showed off his scar.

And we also know for a fact that Billy Brown's new 435 property could gain a new structure without the children risking it all to build it.

But they're doing this personally, on camera, so that they can keep raking in that reality TV money.

And since Alaskan Bush People is creaming Keeping Up With The Kardashians, this hard work and drama is a sound investment in their family's future.

Jordan Kimball and Jenna Cooper: Will ABC Air Their Breakup Drama?

Just this week, Bachelor in Paradise fans watched Jenna Cooper and Jordan Kimball's engagement unfold on screen. They were planning a June wedding.

Now they're planning nothing of the sort and Jenna's planning legal action atter screenshots surfaced showing alleged evidence of her cheating on Jordan.

Now, Chris Harrison is personally revealing how much of this intense breakup drama will be televised.

Jenna Cooper

On Wednesday, at the 2018 GOOD+ Foundation's Evening of Comedy + Music Benefit at Carnegie Hall in New York City, Chris Harrison told Entertainment Tonight what fans can expect.

"A lot of this stuff is going to be off camera," Chris reveals.

Not everything that happens after the season ends stays off-camera, but this might.

"A lot of the conversations will take place," Chris explains. "And we won't be shooting it."

"This won't be for specials," Chris emphasizes. "It's just making sure these human beings are OK."

Chris seems has shocked as fans and viewers about Jordan and Jenna's split.

"All I can say is that when I left them on the beach engaged, they seemed to be very much in love," Chris says.

But it's not like he's hanging out with them on a daily basis.

"The last time I saw them together was on stage at the special that we shot," Chris admits.

Chris says that their love seemed real, admitting: "and you know if she’s faking it, she fooled me too."

Jordan and Jenna

Chris says that he has not spoken directly with Jordan or Jenna about these cheating allegations or the ensuing scandal.

"I haven’t talked to either one of them," Chris says. "So I don’t know the validity of any of it."

"I don’t know what has happened since today, because it seems to be a very fluid situation," Chris adds.

Jordan announced that they were breaking up, but as we all know, new facts can surface or hearts can change at any given moment.

"But I hope it’s not true," Chris says. "I truly do."

Jordan Kimball

The text messages came from Reality Steve, who's a seriously credible guy -- but many wonder if his source is as real as they seem.

After all, text messages are hilariously easy to fabricate. And no one wants to believe that there was real cheating here.

"That would be a pretty terrible thing to do," Chris says. "Because Jordan’s a very good guy,"

"I know Jordan is very much in love with her," Chris affirms.

Chris is uncomfortable with how much of this scandal involves speculation and unknowns, saying: "but then again ... I don’t know."

Chris Harrison may say that he doesn't know what the truth of the matter may be, but Jenna's post to Instagram was not exaclty ambiguous.

She announced that the text messages were fabricated.

Though Jordan said that the texts looked like they came from her, we should note that anyone who is familiar with Jenna's texts could copy her style and change anything they like, including dates and key words.

The best forgeries are always the ones that change as little as possible.

That said, cheating is a real thing, and even celebrities do it. And it's absolutely possible to fall in love with two people at once.

Jersey Shore Recap: I Will F–k You Up, B!!

Move over, Ronnie Ortiz-Magro and Jen Harley.

Two new combatants stepped into the figurative ring on Thursday night, as Jersey Shore: Family vacation featured yet another ugly confrontation between cast members.

Angelina and JWoww

A week after Angelina Pivarnick arrived in Las Vegas, due to an invitation by MTV producers Snooki, the tension between this former regular and Jenni "JWOWW" Farley reached record levels.

And it was largely because Angelina tried to make nice with JWOWW.

Well, it was really because Angelina referred to JWOWW as a "Jersey Whore" back in May, but Jenni warned her foe last night that if she just kept her distance, everything would be okay.

Angelina failed to heed this advice, however.

a headlock

Jenni tried to simply steer clear of Angelina, who she said was "like a pet you don't really want."

When the group went down to the pool, for example, JWOWW refused to clink glasses with Angelina during a toast, thinking that ignoring her rival would basically make her go away.

But it had the opposite effect. It turned Angelina into an irritating pest.

"Why would she all of a sudden say cheers to me?" Jenni asked Nicole.

Poor Jenni

"I'm just trying to f-cking enjoy my last couple of days," she added. "I'm a mom now. If I'm gonna be getting bullied and dumb shit, I'm out."

It was clear that the situation was merely escalating with every passing moment.

At one point, Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino warned Angelina to "proceed with caution" when it came to her relationship with Jenni (he should know... remember when she punched him?), but Angelina continued to do annoy JWOWW.

In a cab on the way to the club that evening, Snooki tried to get Angelina to apologize to Jenni for the whore comment.

But...

ap rides

"You were acting like a f-cking whore," she told JWOWW. 

When Nicole reprimanded her for repeating the insult, Angelina replied:

"Not a whore like that, you ass! Like a freaking bitch. You were acting like a bitch!"

Jenni then tried to explain to Angelina that there was a difference between a "whore" and a "bitch," but it fell on deaf ears.

"It's obvious that Jenni still has resentment towards me, and I'm to blame a little bit, but I'm trying genuinely to be friends with her and maybe we can squash this eventually?” Angelina said.

Then, naturally, she attempted to sit on Jenni's lap and dance with her at the club. Bad move there, Angelina.

“I just want to party and let loose and have fun, and she’s just not having it," Angelina said. "I don’t know if my approach is wrong, but I'm trying."

(Editor's Note: We knew. Everyone there knew. You're approach was definitely wrong.)

Continuing down the clearly wrong path, Angelina tried to drop some ice down Jenni's shirt while at the club, a so-called prank that only served to anger the star.

"Don't touch me!" Jenni boomed "You're out of your damn mind! What is wrong with you? Stop. Stop, or I will f-ck you up!"

Having No Fun

"I don't know what Angelina's thinking messing with Jenni," Ronnie said hilariously, referring to Jenni's husband and adding:

"Roger don't even do that yet, and he's been married to her for eight years!"

This was a lesson Angelina did not learn, however, which is how she ended up scuffling with JWOWW on the dance floor and getting caught in a headlock.

Angelina eventually squirmed her way out of Jenni's grip and slapped her in the face with the back of her hand.

"Bring me home, or I'm gonna go to jail," JWOWW said to The Situation, apparently convinced she broke the law.

Finally, to close out yet another violent and intense episode, Jenni told everyone at dinner the next night that she was going home early.

Big Brother Recap: Two Evictions Rock the House!

Julie Chen returned to CBS Thursday night, and got ready to evict two houseguests, but what did she say about Les Moonves?

Double eviction episodes of the reality series are generally the most dramatic, but the biggest source of drama came from the final few moments when the host paid a stunning tribute to her embattled husband, Les Moonves. 

Julie Chen Hosts Big Brother

“I’m Julie Chen Moonves. Goodnight,” she said to audiences as the second evictee of the night sat next to her. 

Julie does not typically say "Moonves" on the series, usually referring to herself simply as "Julie Chen," so it was immediately evident it was a message of support for her husband, who was fired by the network earlier this week. 

As for what went down in the world of Big Brother, let's get to it. 

Sam and Haleigh were still on the block to be evicted from the house. Everyone at home knew fine well that Haleigh was going out. 

But how did the votes pan out?

Tyler votes to evict: Haleigh

JC votes to evict: Haleigh Brett votes to evict: Haleigh

Angela votes to evict: Haleigh

Haleigh was evicted! 

Haleigh Broucher

We then moved on to the HOH competition. It was the booth-style one with the houseguests answering questions based on video clips shown to the house. 

Round 1: Sam & Tyler get a point

Round 2: JC gets a point

Round 3: Tyler & Brett get a point

Round 4: JC, Sam, Tyler, & Brett get a point

Round 5: Sam, Tyler, Angela, & Brett get a point

Round 6: Everyone gets a point

Round 7: Sam, Tyler, & Angela get a point

Tyler won the HOH competition and immediately got to work to pick who he was evicting. He held one-on-one meetings and told Brett to throw the POV because he was going to make a big move. 

Tyler Crispen

He moved on to nominate Sam and JC for eviction. Neither was impressed, but Tyler had a much bigger plan to play. 

Angela won the power of veto, and she immediately met the others one by one. Tyler told her to use the veto on JC and that he would nominate Brett to be sent home. 

It's not often a plan comes together in Big Brother, but it Angela, Tyler, and Kaycee got their wish and Brett was put on the block in JC's place. 

JC votes to evict: Brett

Kaycee votes to evict: Brett

Angela votes to evict: Brett

Brett was sent out of the door by a vote of 3-0!

Brett Robinson

He was blindsided but admitted to Julie that he respected that it was a game move. Now he has to go to the jury house and explain to Haleigh why Angela and Kaycee's exit speeches threw him under the bus. 

With less than two weeks left, Julie dished that there will be evictions on Wednesday and Thursday next week.

Jason Hitch and Cassia Tavares: Finally Getting Divorced!

There are plenty of 90 Day Fiance stars out there, and not all of them stay with one of the show's many spin-offs. Some go off and live their happily ever afters.

That is what Jason Hitch and Cassia Tavares were doing, more or less ... but that is no longer the case. The couple has filed for divorce.

What's more is that this is not even the first time that they's begun the divorce process.

Cassia Tavares and Jason Hitch

Jason Hitch was 39 years old and from Florida. Cassia Tavares was 24 and is from Brazil.

A few years back, 90 Day Fiance viewers saw their engagement through to the end, even though Jason is 15 years older and, frankly, struck many as being an insufferable and controlling know-it-all.

Now, Jason tells RadarOnline about why he filed for divorce from Cassia on September 7.

"A successful relationship is communication, physical attraction, and doing whatever it takes," Jason begins, in what viewers familiar with him may imagine is a patronizing tone.

"Right now it’s time to go in different directions," Jason declares. "I think we’ll remain friends. She knows I have her best interests at heart."

Jason Hitch and Cassia Tavares 01

Jason may be the kind of guy who drives past a lemonade stand and starts listing problems with the business acumen of actual children, but he is quick to shoot down the idea that Csssia just wanted U.S. citizenship.

"She did not come here just to become an American citizen," Jason affirms.

"She had a good life in Brazil," Jason explains. "She was about to finish college. She didn’t have to marry me."

Cassia has graduated here in the U.S. and he does not believe that she will be deported, given how long they were married.

That said ... one never knows.

Jason Hitch and Cassia Tavares

Jason says that the Army is sending him away.

"I’ll be deployed from nine months to a year,” Jason announces. “The deployment wasn’t a factor in the divorce."

Jason explains his divorce: "If there is indecision, you can’t build a foundation on that."

He also insists that, though he filed the papers, his split from Cassia is mutual and "uncontested."

"There will be no alimony payments,” Jason claims. “No fighting over anything."

We're not sure how that will happen, unless there was a shady pre-nup or unless the divorce will include one lump sum.

Jason Hitch and Cassia Tavares 02

Jason also filed for divorce from Cassia in January of this year.

"I did everything I could,” he lamented to RadarOnline at the time. 

“I took her to every major city in the country," Jason said. "We went to Vegas four times. I paid for resorts to stay for weekends. We saw every show and concert, hung out with celebrities."

"I had expectations from her and she wasn’t fulfilling them," he said vaguely. "She wasn’t communicating with me what they were. She would not talk. I had to beg for attention. It was humiliating."

In April, Jason spoke up again: "I still love her. I don’t want a divorce. I love her and I want to take care of her. What kind of man would I be if I quit this relationship?"

Jason Hitch and Cassia Tavares 03

It's unclear what problems they were having. It is possible that Jason was doing for Cassia what he imagined she wanted.

Sometimes, spouses can't give each other what they really want.

Of course, in January of 2017, Jason was arrested for domestic violence after police spotted an injury on Cassia's arm.

"Jason ... grabbed [Tavares] by her left arm, leaving a mark," the police report reads. "Jason then began screaming at [Tavares] to the point [Tavares] was in fear and dialed 911 for law enforcement."

That sounds scary. All things considered, it sounds like a divorce is the best thing for these two.

Married at First Sight Shocker: It’s All Over For…

We have shocking news to report from the world of Married at First Sight:

One of the couples featured on this Lifetime reality series has called it quits.

Why is this so surprising, considering the finale of each Married at First Sight season ends with twosomes deciding to give their love an extended shot ... or to go their separate ways?

Married at First Sight tandems

Because this break-up has taken place during the season.

Indeed, with new Season 7 installments airing every Tuesday night, Mia Bally and Tristan Thompson* have announced that they can't pretend any longer.

They can't spend another moment as husband and wife.

They are getting a divorce.

(*No, not that Tristan Thompson; not the basketball player who has scarcely met an Instagram model he didn't want to bend over and simply pound. We're talking about this other one.)

According to People Magazine, Bally filed for this legal split in Dallas County, Texas, on September 4.

Embrace for Mia

It shouldn't come as a shock to anyone who's been watching Married at First Sight that this relationship has come to a conclusion.

It's only unexpected that Bally is the one who has filed the paperwork.

Over the course of the past few weeks, Thompson has been struggling with a few issues from Mia's past, specificially that she was arrested years ago on a charge of stalking.

This information came to light after Mia was detained and questioned at the airport while the newlyweds were set to embark on their honeymoon.

Later on, Tristan learned that Bally was still active on a dating app, even while the two were married.

That was yet another major bump in the romantic road, but Thompson (on air, at least) had been willing to try and overlook the obstacles and remained committing to his union.

Mia Bally with Tristan Thompson

That said, there were very clear signs of tension.

All of this is piling up, and now I’m sitting here not knowing who I just married," Thompson said at one point.

He added during another scene:

“This entire marriage I feel like I’ve been completely honest with Mia, and I’ve told her to just give me the truth, and it seems like she’s gone out of her way to hide things from me.

"I honestly don’t know what to feel or what to believe right now. I thought we were done with all the secrets and lies.”

Tristan Thompson (The Other One)

Like we said: it's no surprise these two didn't work out.

We're just taken aback that Mia is the one to have pulled the plug.

But we guess Tristan just didn't live up to the expectations she had in mind for a husband.

"I feel like I lead a simple life," she said in the past, explaining:

"I do go to church every Sunday.

"I am part of a Bible study group on Tuesdays. So that’s what I want is a man to lead me closer to Christ, or even a goal, us have a goal together, and he leads me towards those same motivational values that we have."

Oh well. Better luck next time, guys!

Married at First Sight airs on Tuesdays at 9/8c on Lifetime. 

Gina Kirschenheiter: Quitting The Real Housewives of Orange County?

Gina Kirschenheiter has really made a splash on The Real Housewives of Orange County, from siding with Kelly Dodd against Vicki to speaking her mind without hesitation.

She's made a real impression with fans, who would be happy to see her return for another season.

Will Gina stay or will she go?

Gina Kirschenheiter Hat Pic

RadarOnline spoke to a network insider who explained why Bravo wants Gina Kirschenheiter back for another season.

The Bravo insider says that Gina is "absolutely" welcome back next season.

"She has gained a tremendous fan base," the source explains.

A huge factor in her immediate popularity, the insider explains, is "because people can relate to her."

She's a reality star with a reasonably glamorous lifestyle, so crossing that bridge to relatability can be tricky -- but she managed it.

Gina Kirschenheiter is Divorcing

There are some pretty simple reasons for Gina's rapid rise to popularity among viewers, and it's not the ase of spelling her last name.

"She speaks what is on her mind," the source explains. "And she doesn’t hold back anything."

That's a great quality in a reality star, but also a breath of fresh air to viewers who are tired of jaded reality veterans who pick their battles.

"She is refreshing," the insider states.

"And," the source continues, Gina "has gotten really close to several of the cast members already."

As we had mentioned, Gina sided with Kelly against Vicki over Vicki's double-dates with Kelly's ex.

Matthew Kirschenheiter and Gina Kirschenheiter

As we reported very early this summer, Gina Kirschenheiter divorced her husband shortly after the show wrapped filming.

It was said that Gina seeing parts of her life through the lens of a camera helped to put some things into perspective for her.

Though viewers have seen her acting almost as a single parent to her three young children this season, she and Matt Kirschenheiter don't seem to have any hard feelings.

The insider dishes that Gina "has done an amazing job co-parenting and will continue to be friends with Matt."

That can be a difficult line to tread -- good for her! And good for him, too!

Gina Kirschenheiter and Family

As much as fans and Bravo would like to see an encore performance from Gina, ultimately, that ball is in her court.

"It is up to her whether or not she decides to take the invite back on the show," the source explains.

That makes sense. Some contracts last for several seasons, but few -- networks or stars -- are eager to start with a multi-year contract.

"But hopefully," the insider says. "She will."

Very practically, the source says: "The paycheck sure can’t hurt her."

Gina Kirschenheiter for Season 13

Even amicable divorce is expensive, even if you're rich -- in terms of sheer numbers, especially if you're rich. 

But even if it weren't for that ... the hefty paycheck for a Housewife salary is difficult to turn down. You can never have too much money, folks.

That said, for some people, they find that they're happier when their lives aren't out in the open on television and social media.

Still, we'll keep our fingers crossed that Gina loves being on the show as much as viewers love seeing her.

She really brings a special element to the show's dynamic.
