The Real Housewives of New York Season 10 Episode 14 Recap: Dating Wishes

Ever wanted to watch two women go at it for the same man? 

If so, then The Real Housewives of New York Season 10 Episode 14 was the episode you've been waiting for.

Bethenny Frankel and Ramona Singer have never been close friends. In all honesty, it would not be a standard episode of the series if there was not some shade throwing from either party. 

Ramona Singer, Bethenny Frankel Spar Over Potential Boyfriend

As such, it was only natural the pair would find the same man attractive at a speed dating event. 

But the man starts things off by buying Ramona a drink. That's generally a low-key way of telling somebody you're into them without being left red-faced. 

The man introduced himself as Ryan before engaging in conversation with Bethenny, much to the chagrin of Ramona who was already planning the wedding ... and the divorce to see if it benefited her financially. 

We kid, mostly.

"I think you're super cool," Ryan said to Bethenny. "I think you’re awesome."

Yeah, we're sure anyone would find Bethenny awesome, because, well, she's a bit of a loose cannon and it's best to keep in her good books, or you could find yourself ousted from every top bar in NYC. 

"Thank you. Aww, that’s super nice," the veteran cast member said in response before hugging him.

"'Thank you, that was very sweet. I think the same thing about you, I think it took balls to come here, I really do. I appreciate it," Bethenny continued as she acted smitten with him.

"It was a little romantic, walking in and being like, "Oh my God…"' said Bethenny of her thoughts on Ryan. 

The thing that confirmed Bethenny was really interested was that she uttered the following after some more chatter:

"I'm always 100 percent honest with everyone," she said to him. "Doesn’t mean it’s not going to hurt somebody else, but I’m single - I'm completely single."

Not one to take Bethenny getting the man as defeat, Ramona hit up the bar to get Ryan a drink in return for him getting her one.

"I don't really care who he likes," Ramon barked at someone who said Bethenny was getting close to Ryan. "He brought me a drink, so I want to bring him a drink."

"Since you were kind enough to bring me a drink, I thought I’d bring you a drink," Ramona said to Ryan as she handed over the drink, making sure to grin at Bethenny. 

Poor Carole Radziwill did not get to meet the man because Bethenny and Ramona were all over him. 

"I didn’t get to meet the guy Rory wanted me to meet because he was being devoured by Ramona and Bethenny," she said in a confessional.

Sucks to be you, Carole. 

Elsewhere in the episode, Sonja Morgan wanted to get back on the market. No, we're not talking about her townhouse that is busier with people partying than some of NYC's hottest nightclubs. 

We're talking about her wanting to start dating again. As hilarious as that sounds, it made for some fun scenes as she and Bethenny worked on her dating profile. 

It turns out, Sonja is somewhat high maintenance and wants to find a man who can keep up with that.

The ladies were also preparing for Luann's cabaret, and they were all over the place. They did not like being directed, it seemed, and that was problematic. 

This event is not going to go without a hitch, and that's going to make for another fun episode, we guess. 

The Real Housewives of New York continues Wednesday on Bravo. 

Big Brother Recap: Who Won Veto?

We think it's fair to say that Kaitlyn Herman is one of the most unpredictable houseguests in the history of Big Brother. 

She's been rubbing viewers the wrong way with some of her comments which have bordered on racist, voted against the alliance she helped create, and now she's gunning for someone in her own alliance. 

In order to have a successful alliance inside the Big Brother house, you need to make sure that there's trust, and that you consult with your allies about a move you're about to make. 

Big Brother Week Two Veto Competition

For Kaitlyn, someone who prides themselves in being spiritual and in touch with the energy in the room, that thought could not be more lost on her. 

Watching the live feeds last weekend resulted in Kaitlyn covering her basis to execute a good old Big Brother backdoor. You know, the things that don't usually happen until the midway point of the season. 

Faysal started to realize something was amiss when Kaitlyn picked him to play in the Veto competition. She had a conversation with him right after about it, and said that he's already won a competition and that he should lay low. 

Faysal Shafaat - Big Brother Season 20

But for Faysal, he wanted to fight to keep the nominations the same because that would mean nobody from his alliance could wind up on the block ... whether there's a twist or not. 

The real reason for Kaitlyn having this conversation is that she did not want the man she's pining over keeping the nominations the same or it would screw up the plan she cooked up with Tyler to have Swaggy exit the house on Thursday night. 

While Faysal played it cool with Kaitlyn, he took to the Diary Room to confirm that he would not be throwing the competition and would fight as hard as he possibly could. 

Kaitlyn Herman - Big Brother Season 20

That meant Kaitlyn, Scottie, Winston, Rachel, Faysal, and Tyler were competing in the competition. 

Two faces from the past returned for the competition. Last season's breakout duo Jessica Graf and Cody Nicks made their grand returns to hose the competition. 

It was all about a Big Brother dating app which would be used primarily for former houseguests. The purpose of the competition was to match former houseguests to the places they would like to date. 

The results from the competition:

Rachel – 5:49

Scottie – 18:20

Winston – 20:00

Tyler – 5:29

Faysal – 6:22

Kaitlyn – 13:12

Tyler won the POV!

Tyler Crispen

Tyler then got to work coming up with a plan worth executing. He floated the idea of bringing Scottie off the block and hoping that he would vote with the Level 6 alliance to take Swaggy out of the game. 

Kaytlin opened up to Haleigh about the plan to take Swaggy out and she took the information to Rockstar who was also less than enthused about it. 

Kaitlyn then told Faysal that she was about to do something big and that he needed to be friends with her after it. In his head, he knew what was going on but refused to believe it. 

Kaitlyn put on the fakest tears ever and renominated Swaggy C after Scottie was saved from the block. It was one of the tensest veto ceremonies in the history of the series, but Kaitlyn's wicked plan came to fruition.

Married at First Sight Recap: Can We F-ck Now or What?!?

Six strangers got married on television on Tuesday night.

And millions of viewers thought it was totally normal.

Welcome to the Season 7 premiere of Lifetime's Married at First Sight!


The concept of this unique program is right there in the title, as three Dallas-based couples came together on this opening episode to say "I Do," despite having never laid eyes on each other before.

But this didn't stop one twosome from wanting to get laid pretty much right away.

Isn't that right, Dave Flaherty and Amber Martorana?

A 36-year old Division Order Analyst and 37-year old portfolio manager, both Amber and Dave had similar "lifestyle and lifetime goals," according to the show.

They're each very into routines and each want to start a family sooner than later.

Granted, Amber threw up at her bachelorette party... but she was excited on her wedding day to meet the man she was all set up to wed.

“This is easily one of the most intense moments of my life,” David said on his big day, relieved to find Amber very attractive -- and shocked to learn they belonged to the same gym.

She said “one of the worst guys (she has) dated” attends that gym, and it would be “embarrassing” for Dave to find out.

The newlyweds totally wanted to bone right away, too, although Amber had promised her mom she wouldn't French Kiss her new husband at the ceremony.

Still, they both were eager to get back to their suite and have sex for the first time.

Danielle Bergman and Bobby Dodd

As for Danielle Bergman and Bobby Dodd?

The former wanted a southern gentleman in the market for a wife and a family and a chance to settle down.

Who doesn't, right?!?

Dodd's family was in support of this strange union, but Danielle's family was far more hesitant, with her mom refusing to even go wedding dress shopping with her daughter.

Thankfully, however, she showed up for the wedding.

"I just feel so relieved,” Danielle said when her mom walked in for the event. “I can finally be excited about the most important day of my life.”

Fitting right into that gentleman mode, Dodd made a point of stopping on his way down the aisle and greeting everyone on Danielle's side, particularly her mom.

“I got my southern gentleman,” Danielle said. “I am very, very happy.”

And Bobby was psyched as well, most notably when he got to kiss his wife for the first time at the altar.

“It was the best kiss I ever had,” he said.

And these two also wanted to head straight to Pound Town, as Danielle told viewers she got a bikini wax for the occasion.

"It’s not wrong if you’re married,” she joked.

Mia Bally and Tristan Thompson

Finally, we move on to Mia Bally and Tristan Thompson.

No, not that Tristan Thompson.

Both Mia and Tristan were deeply faithful and very good looking people, hence the idea that they would hit it off.

Not that Bally's loved ones were on board at all.

"I don't really feel good about the process, I think it's crazy," Mia's sister said during Bally's bachelorette party, adding:

"What if you don't like each other, you don't get along, he doesn't want to work it out? I'm going to support you regardless...

I just don't want you to get f-ced over. I don't want you to get your heart broken again! It sucks, and you know that!"

Still, Mia's family wasin attendance for the wedding.

During the ceremony, Tristan was excited to learn his wife was a fan of the Dallas Cowboys.

The newlyweds then exchanged heartfelt vows, but when Tristan tried to kiss her, she made him give her a peck on the cheek instead of anything on the lips.

“She didn’t kiss him. I don’t like that,” Tristan’s uncle said in response.

But Mia later insisted to the camera that she was just trying to go slow... because she really wanted to go fast and knew that could be dangerous.

"He seems like a dream so far,” she said. “I feel that we would make cute babies … that’s for sure.”

Following the nuptials, both husband and wife calmed down a bit, while Mia's dad warned his new son-in-law not to pork his daughter on their wedding night.

For real.

Nevertheless: “Dude, God is real. Oh my God, she is amazing,” Tristan said when everything was over.

The Bachelorette Recap: Virgin Territory (As in, One Guy is a Virgin!)

A very important selection was made on national TV last night.

But forget Donald Trump nominating Brett Kavanaugh for The Supreme Court.

Becca Kufrin had to choose her final four suitors on The Bachelorette!


The latest installment of this ABC favorite featured some spit-swapping; one man admitting that he's a virgin; and Becca confessing to having sympathy for the man who shattered her heart this spring.

We start our recap with Blake.

He exhibited a lof of trepidation prior to his one-on-one date, only to then listen intently while Becca said she has developed feelings for multiple men this season.

Crazy, right?!?

Such a situation never presents itself on The Bachelor or The Bachelorette.

"In a way, like, I do sympathize with Arie because I couldn’t understand how you could feel so strongly for multiple people,” Becca said of the man who did THIS to her in front of millions.

She added:

“I see just how difficult it probably was for him at the end.”

Blake only cared about whether he was one of these people for whom Becca had serious affection, though.

Becca Kisses Blake

He opened up to his potential wife about the affair that led to his parents’ divorce (his mother left his dad for Blake’s high school basketball coach!) and then dropped the L-Bomb.

Dude said he was in love with The Bachelorette!

Becca then told the cameras that she was in love with Blake too and she could absolutely picture the pair growing old together.

“My heart just recognizes his,” Becca confessed after giving Blake a rose.

Welp, that's it then we suppose!

We can call off the rest of the season now! Becca has found her man!

No, wait. Colton had went on a solo date with Kufrin this week.

And he had quite the bomb of his own to drop:

He's a a virgin!

As in, he has never had sexual intercourse.

Really?!? replied Becca, in so much shock that she actually walked out on their dinner for a bit.

(To use the bathroom is all, she later Tweeted.)

becca bathroom

Becca came back and assured Colton that she would never judge him, but she expressed concern in her confessional that the guy had not really experienced much of life.

(Translation: He could not please her in bed.)

Colton explained to Kufrin that he wasn't waiting for marriage, just “the right heart."

This line was apparently enough to win Becca over, as she gave him a rose (how could she not?!? You can't hear someone is a virgin and then send them home.) and Colton was satisfied that she accepted him for who he is.

Garrett and Becca

But who is Garrett Yrigoyen?

The presumed front-runner if you read our section of The Bachelorette spoilers, he has been dragged hard online by those who have read his racist social media messages.

He and Becca spent basically their entire meal gazing into one another's eyes, only for Becca to express some concern that Garrett is almost too relaxed and happy. 

Is there any depth to the guy at all?!?

WAIT... we interrupt this rundown to bring you the following piece of BREAKING NEWS:

Viewers were pissed on Monday that ABC cut into The Bachelorette to air President Trump's Supreme Court decision:

bachelorette pics

.... and we're back!

Who cares about the person that will help set social progress back decades? There are more roses to hand out!

Garrett accepted Becca's challenge to go deeper and opened up about his ex-wife and how he changed himself to make their marriage work.

Becca took this story to mean that she and Garrett had similar pasts with their exes.

She was psyched when he told her he was starting to fall in love with her and she handed him a rose as a result.

From there... the stars stripped off their fancy clothes and shared a sexy night swim before the date came to a close.


Fun on the Beach

Finally, Becca had one rose remaining and three men for a group date: Leo, Wills and Jason.

The former was sent packing because Kufrin didn't think she and Leo were at a place where she would feel comfortable meeting his family.

Wills then said he was in love with Becca, but that actually prompted her to give Jason a rose because she didn't reciprocate this intense feeling.

So that's it!

Brett Kavanaugh will reverse Roe vs. Wade and Becca Kufrin is down to four suitors!

Floribama Shore Season 2 Episode 1 Recap: Psycho-Ass Beach

MTV's trashier and more extreme version of Jersey Shore returned to the air Monday night, and it meant we got to catch up with the wild cast once again. 

At the top of Floribama Shore Season 2 Episode 1, we learned that Nilsa had been messaging Kortni to get her to give up the room she had on Floribama Season 1 and settle for a smaller room. 

The reason for this request? Nilsa wanted to bunk with Aimee and felt like she had the right to ask for someone else to give up their space for her. 

Kortni Gilson Goes Ham on Floribama Shore

If you watch Jersey Shore online, or any other reality TV series that focuses on a group living in a house together, you know that the room situation is generally dealt with in a reasonable manner. 

If you get to the house first, you get a good room. If not, you get to sleep outside with the alligators. We kid, mostly, but you get our drift. 

Needless to say, Kortni was not at all amused about it and admitted that she was ready to fly off the handle with Nilsa if she tried to pull any crap with her during the summer. 

Also, Kortni was the one who urinated all over the room on the series premiere, so we think it's fair to say that she had every right to want that room back. 

Nilsa Prowant

It's best to keep the bed wetters contained to the one room because, well, the whole house could be deemed unfit for purpose if it smells of urine. 

Kortni has always been a livewire and has the potential to throw in enough drama to cause World War III. Codi and Gus wasted no time in using the room situation to their advantage. 

They swapped her belongings with Nilsa's, and it sent Kortni off on an expletive-filled tirade that would give Jenelle Evans a run for her money. 

Kortni wanted to know who was "f--cking with my s--t." She might as well have been a robot created by the same people who made the Sammi doll on Jersey Shore. 

Codi made his way to the loo and claimed that if she thought he was dropping the kids off at the pool, it would take him out of the frame. 

Codi Butts - Floribama Shore

Well, he did not put it quite like that, but he was freaking the eff out in case Kortni lashed out at him. Instead, Kortni went straight to his belongings and started throwing them down the stairs. 

Codi wants to look good, and that's why he walked into the house with all of his clothing on hangers. Despite his freshly ironed shirts being put in jeopardy, the thing that set Codi off was that she threw his white pants down the stairs. 

Kortni called a house meeting, but that did not do anything to diffuse the situation. She subsequently punched the wall, leaving a huge dent and claiming that she would do the same to anyone who crossed her. 

Kortni did finally calm down, but the damage was done. The wall was busted. We should probably say her hand was busted, too, but we do not condone violent behavior. 

When Codi fessed up, Kortni was happy to know it was not Nilsa, but there was visibly something going on behind those eyes. She was all over the place. 

Kortni Gilson

The roomies went out to make sure they had the best first night ever, and bumped into Kortni's new squeeze, Logan, who was surprisingly calm. 

They do say that opposites attract, right?

Kortni was dancing on the bar for some free shots, and just generally making an ass of herself. Logan did not like this and flipped out when his girlfriend and Kirk started playing stupid games in the cab. 

Kortni was too drunk even to know whether she needed a poop or a haircut. In true Kortni fashion, she raced out of the cab and got ready to start throwing punches at Logan. 

Is it Monday yet? 

Aimee, Floribama Shore

The other houseguests were overshadowed by Kortni's antics, but the other most notable scene involved Aimee and Codi thinking they had somehow made their way to Washington, D.C. 

The pair thought they were standing outside the White House and started chatting about independence. Little did they know the rest of the world was laughing at them.

What did you think of the premiere? Did Kortni go too far?

Remember you can watch Floribama Shore online!

Big Brother Recap: Who Did Kaitlyn Nominate for Eviction?

Kaitlyn Herman kicked off her reign as Head of Household on Sunday's episode of Big Brother, and she did so in the most uncertain fashion. 

Unless you've been living under a rock, you will know that Kaitlyn became Head of Household mere moments after going back on her word to her alliance, opting to vote with the Level Six alliance instead of her own. 

We learned why she changed focus, and it was good old Tyler who brought on the big change in her mindset. Hours before the eviction, he pulled her aside and essentially told her she was the lowest person on the totem pole of the Foute alliance. 

Tyler Crispen - Big Brother Season 20

Tyler went as far as saying that she would be the next person eliminated because of her ties to the alliance. This made Kaitlyn change her mind and vote to keep Sam over Steve. 

But the big flaw in her strategy was that it confirmed to the Foute alliance that there was a traitor amongst them, and it did not take long for everyone to realize that Kaitlyn was the one who voted against them. 

There was nothing they could really do because if they rubbed her the wrong way, they could find themselves sitting pretty on the block at the next eviction. 

Kaitlyn was straight up with Rockstar, Faysal, and Haleigh, telling them that she would keep them safe, but she drew the line at that. 

Kaitlyn Herman - Big Brother Season 20

Obviously, this was mildly concerning for the trio to hear because they thought they were in an alliance with the others, and are hearing the person who created the alliance confirm it was over. 

Then again, this is Big Brother and we told to "expect the unexpected" on an episodic basis. You know one thing that we ALWAYS expect from Big Brother?


Bayliegh and Swaggy continued to get closer on Sunday's episode, and it was given an unnecessary amount of screen time. 

We already know that Swaggy is regretting his time with Bayliegh because now he's seen as part of a pair in the house, and that creates a huge target. 

Chris "Swaggy C" Williams

Sam met up with Kaitlyn to dish the goodies about her power, and Kaitlyn agreed to leave her off the block. Instead, she said her plan was to nominate Winston and Scottie, and backdoor Swaggy. 

To the people she didn't trust as much, she said her target was Winston, but with Kaitlyn, there's no telling where her loyalty really lies. She's been a bit all over the place of late. 

Before we got to the nominations, we learned that Rachel was the least trending houseguest and that meant she had a reviewer yelling insults about her gameplay for 24 hours. 

Tyler Crispen

Tyler was the most trending houseguest and won a power that allowed him to avoid going on the block once in the next eight weeks. 

In the end, Kaitlyn nominated Scottie and Winston, putting the first part of her plan in motion. 

What did you think of the latest twists and turns?

Big Brother Recap: Who Was Evicted First? Who’s The New Head of Household?

It was the end of the line for one houseguest on Thursday's episode of Big Brother, and the oddest thing about the hour was the lack of campaigning from either party. 

Maybe Sam Bledsoe knew that she was safe either way with her power, but Steve was sitting a little too pretty for my liking. Luckily for both nominees, their fellow houseguests were deliberating right up until the eviction ceremony. 

Seriously though, the Big Brother live feeds have been on fire the last few days with all of the backstabbings, and it's only going to get crazier from here on out as the battle lines are drawn by the end of this hour. 

Steve Arienta-Sam Bledsoe

It's bizarre, but CBS opted to make viewers sit through the obnoxious relationship that is Faysal and Haleigh instead of showing the back and forth. 

It's Week Two, and we already have two showmances, with one of them about to become a love triangle. Bayliegh and Swaggy C (that name will never stop sounding ridiculous!) are paired off, and it seems Faysal and Haleigh are, too. 

There's always trouble in paradise in the Big Brother house, and it seems that Kaitlyn is pissed about the latter pairing. The awkward thing about all of it is that she has a thing for Faysal but has been open about having someone back home. 

We thought with Kaitlyn being a life coach she would be able to get her $hit together, but it seems that she's losing that spark we noticed in her upon entering the house. 

Kaitlyn Herman

Could it be that Big Brother took her crystals and oils off her when she entered the house? Should we get Spencer Pratt on the line to ask him if this is a common side effect to not having his crystals? 

In any case, the eviction rolled around, and it was always going to be a close call with the two alliances having a similar amount of players. 

Week 1 Votes:

  • Scottie votes to evict: Sam J
  • C votes to evict: Steve
  • Chris votes to evict: Sam
  • Bayleigh votes to evict: Sam 
  • Rachel votes to evict: Steve 
  • Kaycee votes to evict: Steve 
  • Faysal votes to evict: Sam 
  • Haleigh votes to evict: Sam 
  • Angela votes to evict: Steve 
  • Brett votes to evict: Steve 
  • Winston votes to evict: Steve 
  • Kaitlyn votes to evict: Steve 
  • Angie votes to evict: Sam

Steve Arienta was evicted by a vote of 7-6.

Steve Arienta

Yes, that means Sam got to keep her power to use another week because she successfully escaped the block. The most surprising thing about this eviction was that Kaitlyn turned her back on her alliance and pulled the shocked face when Steve was sent out the door. 

Swaggy and Bayliegh did not know where to look when their ally was sent out because it confirmed to them that there was someone working both sides of the house, and that's problematic for them. 

All told, the HOH competition was high stakes because each side of the house vied for the power to nominate for eviction. 

The houseguests were tasked with sending a ball into the air to hit a building with a number on it. Whichever one had the highest number would be crowned HOH. 

Kaitlyn Herman - Big Brother Season 20

Kaitlyn slid into victory, meaning that she will have to pick a side and stick with it before the numbers start to drop. 

Julie also revealed that Sam's power meant that if someone is evicted, they would play a competition live to get back into the game. 

As always, we'll keep you up to speed with the latest Big Brother Spoilers!

What did you think of the first eviction?

Were you surprised?

Big Brother continues Sunday on CBS. 

Big Brother Recap: Who’s Going Home?

Less is more in the Big Brother house, and Sam Bledsoe realized that on the latest episode of the hit CBS reality series. 

If you've been keeping up to speed with all the latest events, you know that Sam has been ruffling a lot of feathers in the house. 

The reason for that is that she's paranoid she's being sent out of the game. However, she was given the secret power to give her the chance to return to the game, and it made her realize that she could build bridges and craft a good game out of her time in the house. 

Julie Chen Waves Big Brother Flag

She wasted no time in letting Tyler know that she was still his friend despite him being the one to put her on the block. She extended the olive branch by opening up about her power to Tyler. 

The good thing about her strategy was that she never went into detail about the power. Instead, she left a lot out so that she knows Tyler cannot go running his mouth about it. 

Elsewhere, Swaggy C continued to try and distance himself from Bayliegh, and he got on the wrong side of her when he suggested they should stay apart. All of this happened after he told her about Tyler saying she could be the replacement nominee. 

Chris "Swaggy C" Williams

Oh yes, the drama is ramping up!

Bayliegh cried her way through the rest of the episode because she felt like she was being iced out. To be fair, she came into the game and played too hard from the get-go. 

But Swaggy said he would keep her safe, and he wanted to do his best to win the veto competition to keep the nominations the same. In the competition, Sam garnered an early victory, but it ultimately came down to Faysal and Tyler. 

Faysal Shafaat - Big Brother Season 20

Faysal took the win, and reiterated his stance that he wanted to keep the nominations the same. He and his allies were gunning for Angela, but the moment Bayliegh's name was thrown out as a replacement, they seemed to settle. 

While Faysal may have been winning competitions, he was not winning over the viewers. He was the least trending houseguest, and that meant he had to get "Hamazon deliveries" that meant he had to eat meat on demand. 

It was ridiculous, but at least it did not ruin his chance to win the veto. 

Sam Bledsoe

Going into Thursday's eviction episode, it will be a close call in the voting department whether Sam or Steve are evicted. Steve is tedious because he thinks that everyone will keep him safe, while Sam is a bit all over the place. 

Alas, we will find out how it all plays out on Thursday night. 

The Bachelorette Recap: Man, Chris Sucks So Much!

Becca Kufrin finally lost it this week on The Bachelorette.

Did she read a few write-ups on the Internet about how she's sort of boring and this season is a snooze? Maybe.

But it's more that a couple men on the episode pissed Becca off to such a degree that she reacted by making an unprecedented decision...

Bachelorette in Thought

Let's start with the worst of them all: Chris.

He went into the group dead determined to make up for his behavior last week... only to get into an argument with Lincoln before the outing even got underway.

These suitors went at it over who would prevail on a two-on-one date, followed by Chris threatening Lincoln and accusing his foe of body-shaming him.

The two children men then actually debated each other at the Virginia capitol, as ABC gave them an actual platform to be all immature and combative.

Chris said Lincoln was all nasty, aggressive and offensive and added that Becca would be disgusted if she saw the guy he was when she wasn’t around.

Et tu, Lincoln?

Chris Makes a Speech

At the after-party, Lincoln told Becca that he felt threatened by Chris and claimed Connor as well.

Chris - who was adamant he had done nothing wrong and was angry he kept having to defend himself - denied being emotionally abusive or physically threatening, yet Becca was irritated by the while situation and had to take some time to herself before she could speak to any of the other men.

She thought she was on this show to play footsie with potential husbands, not play mediator between petty self-cented douche canoes.

Later in the episode, a cocky Chris went to Becca’s hotel room, prepared to basically reboot their relationship.

The Bachelorette, though, was disturbed by how Chris had acted, not to mention the negative things she had heard about him.

As a result, she decided to send him home before the rose ceremony, labeling Chris a “very angry person” and explaining that he wasn’t the kind of guy with whom she wanted to spend her life.

And Chris responded with calm and understanding, right?

Nope: he proved Becca's point by storming out and barely saying goodbye.

Becca Sits and Chills


Becca got very personal with Jason, telling him about her dad's death during their one-on-one date after he told her about his grandmother’s battle with Alzheimer’s.

Turns out, Becca’s father got sick when she was 14.

The doctors told him that he only had six months to live, but he managed to hold on for another five years.

Becca opened way up about watching her father take his last breath, and she felt like Jason could relate to how this experience made her appreciate her relationships in general, along with life itself.

Not surprisingly, Becca gave Jason a rose and noted that she could see herself ending up with him... FOREVER.

Meanwhile, Becca struggled to move past the events of the group date during her one-on-one date with Leo.

She just couldn't push out of her mind how Chris and Lincoln had ruined everything with their rivalry.

However, once she talked to Leo about how she was feeling, the two had a decent time together.

With family also on his mind, Leo explained to Becca how he never felt good enough because he thought he let his father down, but she gave him a reason to keep his head raised high for at least another week, giving him a rose.

Still, in the end, Becca was too stressed out from the group date to even host a cocktail party.

She made the unusual choice to cancel this event -- and then sent Lincoln and Connor packing during the rose ceremony.

Can you blame her?

Big Brother Recap: Two Alliances Form as a Romance Hits the Rocks

Big Brother is slowly picking up the pace, but there are still some big issues with this new season. 

The casting is way off, with several unlikable players. There are a few that genuinely seem like they are there to win and that's problematic. 

We picked up moments after current Head of Household; Tyler nominated both Sam and Steve for eviction in week one. 

Sam Bledsoe Wins Some Power

Tyler was a bit too emotional about making the decision, but we quickly learned this was all part of his elaborate plan to lay low. The good thing about Tyler is that he knows how the game is played. 

Sam was mad that Tyler put her on the block after she opened up to him about being on the outs with everyone. Like Tyler, Sam was playing the long con and making people think she was upset. 

While that was all going down, Kaycee was struggling to come to terms with her punishment. It was ruining her social game because the producers were mostly able to keep her in one room for as long as they wanted. 

The good news for her is that she's part of the Level Six alliance which also includes Winston, Tyler, Brett, Angela, and Rachel. Together, they will be able to dominate the game. 

Tyler Crispen

But all of that depends on whether they can remain loyal to each other. Big alliances always have a weak link who gets too paranoid about the hierarchy of the alliance and ultimately wind up spilling the beans to everyone else. 

For Tyler, this alliance was golden because he knew it was filled with competitors who could keep him safe in week two after his HOH reign comes to a close. 

Then there was Swaggy C and Bayliegh who seem poised to be hot and cold all summer long. Showmances are a big no-no in the Big Brother house because it means you're playing the game as a pair. 

Swaggy is concerned that Bayliegh is a distraction from him, and he has a point. But then again, Bayliegh is the only one who knows how to keep him quiet when he's shouting the odds at everyone in the house. 

Chris "Swaggy C" Williams

Swaggy's issue, however, seems to be that he's as dumb as a bag of rocks. He wants to get the floaters out of the game early on, and that's silly. The floaters are the most impressionable players in the game. 

They can be swing votes further in the game. Despite this, Swaggy wants to use his "brains" to form an alliance. 

As we previously reported in our Big Brother Spoilers, Faisyal won the "Hamazon" power in the Big Brother App Store, meaning he was given ham on an almost minutely basis. 

But due to his religion, he was given a substitute. Sam emerged with the bonus life power which allowed her a shot at returning to the game if she was eliminated in the first three evictions. 

Sam Bledsoe

She is also allowed to pass on the power. It does, however, come with a huge caveat: If she does not use it in the first three evictions, the fourth eliminated houseguest is automatically handed it. 

Okay then.

Ronnie Goes at Mike in EPIC Jersey Shore Finale Fight

On the season finale of Jersey Shore: Family Vacation, Mike told Ronnie that he thought his friend should go to rehab.

And Ronnie replied no, no, no.

No, really. Amy Winehouse references aside, this intense argument was at the center of an explosive concluding episodes.

Ronnie vs. Sitch

(Not concluding forever, mind you. Jersey Shore: Family Vacation Season 2 will premiere in August.)

This is how it all started:

While having dinner with Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi, Pauly D, Jenni "JWoww" Farley, Vinny Guadagnino and Deena Cortese, Ronnie confessed to getting "crazy" when he goes out. 

However, he maintained this partying never really affected his life

Heck, he was even "blessed [that] Sam didn't come" for the season so that his roommates could at last see Ronnie himself... and not someone only known for having a toxic relationship.

(Note to Ronnie: We know this finale was filmed months ago, but have you read the recent headlines about you and Jen Harley?)

"I think Ronnie is confused about where he is in life," Vinny told the cameras. "He's trying to convince himself he's happy, but when Ronnie gets drunk, he's talking different."

Jersey Shore Quartet

In his own confessional later on, Paul D agreed:

"Ron's scared of not having that perfect life, which is bullsh-t. This is the modern family now.

"You don't need to be married to have a child, you don't need to be with the baby mama to have a good relationship with her daughter. He's scared of all that."

More prescient and profound than ever, the DJ continued:

"I also think Ron's scared of being alone as well because I've never seen him legitimately single.

"I think that's where a lot of the issues stem from. He forces relationships to happen because he thinks he needs to be in one.

"He needs to get himself right because you can't jump into a relationship until you're fixed. He's not fixed from his relationship with Sammi."

So this was the background for when Jenni came right out and said during the quasi family meal:

"Mike, why did you say Ronnie needs rehab?"

Oh. Boy.

A Confused Situation

Someone hold Ronnie back, folks.

First of all," he said immediately in anger. "I'm having a kid in like six weeks. When I drink, I like to f-cking party. I didn't make it my life. You made it your life. You let it affect your whole life. You let it destroy your life. So don't sit there saying I need f-cking rehab."

He wasn't done screaming at The Situation, either.

"Bro, look at you! You f-cking got a tax evasion! You almost lost everything you f-cking earned."

From here, as you might expect, it was totally on between the close friends.

"Did you not call me two weeks before we came here and say you needed rehab?!" Mike yelled back, to which Ronnie corrected Sitch by saying he asked for "help," not rehab.

(You may be picking some nits there, Ronnie.)

Ronnie, Yo!

"You put people's dirt out there," Ronnie said, truly starting to lose his temper and screaming at Mike:

"Your sh-t is public! Your sh-t is real news! That sh-t is on the papers! That's why I talk about it. I don't bring your dirt in the house. I don't f-cking sweep your name in the f-cking mud.

"I just say what the facts are."

Mike tried to remain calm.

"You need help," he simply said in response.

"I don't have a problem, bro!" Ronnie fired back. "I help myself. You never help yourself. Lauren [Mike's new fiancee] helps you now. I take care of Jen, I take care of my kid, and her f-cking kid. Fact!

"End of the story. Bottom line. So don't ever f-cking say I need help."

Ronnie Having Fun

Eventually, Ronnie went outside to cool down, admitting to Jen that he would have "literally beat [Mike's] ass" if they had talked for even 10 seconds more.

So, what happened when mike went outside to continue the chat?

Was said ass beaten?

Thankfully, no.

“Number one, I care about you. Number two, I was f-cking wrong. I’m f-cking concerned about you,” Mike told his muscle-bound colleage, continuing as follows:

“You told me while we were in here that you are gonna get your act cleaned up when we get out of here. But, I went low."

Ronnie: “And I went lower and I’m sorry for that. That’s something I need to work on."

Would you look at that? Maturity and progress!

Then co-stars then hugged. AWWW!

As we said, Jersey Shore will return in August.

If Ronnie ever stops fighting with his baby mama, that is.

Big Brother Recap: Who Got Nominated for the First Eviction?

The first Head of Household competition of the season aired on Thursday night's episode, and it sent the drama in the household into overdrive. 

Steve, JC, Winston, Sam, Bayleigh, Tyler, Kaitlyn, and Angela were the eight unlucky competitors fighting for the power after Swaggy opted to leave them all vulnerable. 

Big Brother Cast Poses for Summer

The competition was found the players balancing across a wandering beam to pick up a ball and to target another player's tube to fill. 

Whenever a player's tube was filled with ten balls, they were struck out of the competition. The players opted to target Steve and Sam, and it was rather predictable. 

Steve was always going to be a polarizing character in the house because of his NYPD roots. Despite him lying about his career, everyone seems to think there's something off about him. 

Let's just say his strategy to float on by for a few weeks is not going to work, and he's going to have to battle for safety if he wants to remain in the competitive loop. 

Tyler Crispen

In the end, Tyler secured the win, giving him the power to nominate seven of the houseguests. Tyler was worried that Angela was blowing up his game by saying they are from the same part of the U.S.

Could he want to get some revenge by throwing her on the block? Doubtful. 

Swaggy admitted straight off the bat that he did not want to save Angela because it would have ruffled too many feathers. The error of Swaggy's ways is that he's already burned bridges with both Bayliegh and Angela. 

Angela admitted that she would not forget his disloyalty, and just like that, we have our first big feud of the season!

Angela Rummans

Tyler was on a power trip because he won the first HOH and wanted to hear everyone offer him things to get to stay off the block. 

Winston seemed to offer the best of both worlds. He pitched an alliance that included them both, Brett, Angela, Rachel, and Kaycee. 

Tyler, as predicted was "into that" but stressed that it did not leave him with a lot of options for the nominations. He floated the idea of putting Sam and Steve up. 

But Sam was not ready to allow herself to be thrown up on the block. Instead, she pitched Tyler that she would be a solo person in the game and that it would allow her to gather intel for him. 

It was a desperate move but proved she was willing to go to great lengths to get what she wanted. 

Chris "Swaggy C" Williams

Before we got to the nominations ceremony, Swaggy appeared in the HOH room and tried to push Tyler towards nominating Angela and Winston as a power move. 

A chat with Bayliegh also confirmed that Swaggy was gathering up his side of the house, and Tyler ultimately decided to lay low with nominating Sam and Steve. 

The game is officially on, and it's only a matter of time before the cracks in the alliances start to crumble!

The Real Housewives of New York Season 10 Episode 13 Recap: Arrest and Relaxation

The feud between Ramona Singer and Luann de Lesseps continued on The Real Housewives of New York Season 10 Episode 13, and if it proved anything, it was that these two are never going to be able to get on with each other. 

The latest argument between the pair stemmed from Ramona sharing an Instagram picture of the housewives. No, we're not kidding. 

“The she-devil strikes again,” de Lesseps said.

“I really feel like Ramona invaded my privacy by putting a picture out of me when nobody knew where I was. And now the whole world knows I’m out of rehab.”

In Luann's defense, this was in the aftermath of her getting home from her 21-day stint in rehab, so she did not want anyone knowing her whereabouts. 

"I have a court case coming up,” Luann continued. “I don’t need more press! I don’t need pictures of me and the press making guesses at what I’m up to.”

This is the picture Ramona shared:

The Real Housewives of New York Pose Before Fine Dining

“My return to New York is supposed to be on my terms,” she explained to viewers. “I just feel like I got the rug pulled out of me.”

“You put a picture up, and now Luann is the talk of the town again,” Luann said to Ramona at dinner. 

“It’s inevitable that I will be in the press again, I just don’t want my friends to drive it. You opened up a can of worms for me.”

“These are hurtful things. You’re hurting me,” de Lesseps added. “You have to be more respectful and thoughtful about your friends.”

“We also post group shots! It’s a beautiful picture,” Ramona said.

“You didn’t tell me not to post. … I’m sorry.”

It's surprising because Ramona is generally outspoken and does not care what people think, but it seemed like Luann genuinely hit a nerve. 

Ramona Singer in Black

“I’m disappointed in myself,” Singer said. “I wasn’t thinking. Now I understand. … I made a huge mistake. This was bad. What I did was bad.”

But that was not enough to let Singer out of the dog house. Luann was still not impressed at the way Ramona went behind her back to speak to Tom. 

“There are so many guys on the Upper East Side. Really?” de Lesseps confessed to viewers.

“You have to go and have drinks with Tom? I knew Ramona wasn’t the brightest tool in the shed, but what an idiot.”

“It’s not cool,” Luann yelled at Singer.

Luann de Lesseps is Looking Good

“If you’re my friend, it’s not cool. What you did, most people would never talk to you again. That is the lowest of the low. Do you realize that? What you did is the lowest of the low.”

Singer was not ready to accept defeat on that one. Instead, she opted to defend herself by saying that she was merely having drinks at the bar with friends. 

“Just because Luann divorced Tom doesn’t mean he’s going to disappear. He travels with the same circle as I do, he has the same friends as I do,” Singer explained.

“Listen, if I couldn’t talk with every man Luann ended up being with, I wouldn’t be talking to any men in New York City!”

You make it worse,” Luann said as she stormed off. “You don’t have my best interest at heart, and I can’t be around that.”

Luann de Lesseps Poses

It took a lot, but Ramona finally decided that she would try to be a better person. 

“She’s nervous. Nobody wants to go before the judge and find out what their sentencing is. I should have been more sensitive to that. I’ll take the bullet,” Singer said.

“I should have said, ‘I understand what you’re saying, and I’m sorry,’ ” Singer added.

“I have this problem. When people start attacking me — even though they’re right to attack me, I’m not saying they’re wrong — I get defensive and go, ‘Fine, goodbye.’ It’s very immature.”

“I showed bad judgement. And worse is that I hurt you,” she said. “I hope you forgive me.”

Ramona Singer Dazzles In Red

Elsewhere, Bethenny Frankel found herself at odds with Tinsley. Bethenny wanted to know why Tinsley was shopping for wedding dresses. 

Tinsley was adamant she was not engaged, but Bethenny seemed to want to reiterate that the whole situation was weird. 

It was awkward, but it became an even bigger fight when Dorinda starts saying that Sonja is in no way a Morgan and that she has no right to call herself by that name. 

Dorinda Medley Attends Premiere

What followed was Dorinda apologizing for it. It took some time, but she actually did it. 

This was an odd episode of the series, but it was filled with drama.

Big Brother Recap: Who Has All the Power?

It's that time of the year again. 

By that we mean the time a group of people desperate for fame and fortune makes their way into the Big Brother house in an attempt to scheme their way to the top spot. 

Being the milestone 20th season of the veteran CBS reality series, there were a string of changes in store. If anything, the two-hour opener wasted a lot of time introducing the houseguests. 

Big Brother Season 20 Cast

When it came to introducing themselves, Steve was quick to lie that he was a mechanic. In reality, he's a former NYPD undercover cop and is scared about the other houseguests going after him. 

The issue with Steve is that he sketches the other houseguests out. Tyler wondered why the man was staring at him in such an awkward manner. 

Steve will not last very long in the house if he can't keep up with his ruse. The cracks are already beginning to appear. 

Big Brother split the sixteen houseguests into two teams. Before we knew it, one half were looking for folders to allow them to play another competition, and the other was caught up in a spelling competition. 

Angela Rummans

Angela found the folder that allowed her to escape the dimly lit room, and take part in the next competition. Swaggy C (yes, that's his name!) won the spelling competition. 

Kaycee and Sam were given punishments for poor performance in the first challenge. Kaycee needs to stay where she is when her necklace spins, and Sam was turned into a robot. 

Before Swaggy C and Angela got to face off for control of the game, they chatted about the outcome. Angela shocked Swaggy C by saying that she would not be saving him because she needed to save the eight she competed with to keep it fair. 

Swaggy had a bit of an ego. He paraded around the house before the second competition and started to ruffle some feathers, so Bayliegh told him to dial it back, and they agreed to look out for each other.

Chris "Swaggy C" Williams

The "BB Web" competition found the two competitors on a surfboard each and trying to dodge obstacles. It seemed like Angela was going to put her athletic past to good use, but she ultimately lost out. 

Julie then told Swaggy that he would pick two of the four teams who went into the house to make safe with his power. It resulted in people offering up firstborns to get to stay in the house. 

We kid, mostly, but Angela seemed to think she was safe because Swaggy whispered as much in her ear. That's not how the game is played. 

Brett Robinson

When it got down to the nitty-gritty, Swaggy saved himself, Brett, Rachel, & Angie. Scottie, Kaycee, Haleigh, & Faysal.

The silly thing is that Swaggy has already proven he's not a man of his word by lying his way to early victory, and that's going to come back to bite him when the others go after him.

The Bachelorette Recap: What Happened in Vegas Did Not Stay There

The Bachelorette put a twist on an old saying this week.

What happened in Vegas between Becca Kufrin and her suitors did not stay in Vegas, after all.

It was broadcast to an entire country! And you don't need The Bachelorette spoilers to tell you that it. Got. Dramatic.

Becca Kufrin in Black

The highlight of the latest installment was most definitely the three-way date between Becca, David and Jordan, the latter two of whom saw their ongoing feud come to a loud, ugly and immature head.

This annoying pairing headed to a state park aptly called Valley of Fire with Becca, and as various Bachelorette spoilers predicted, their beef boiled over.

David started talking smack about Jordan nearly as soon as the opening credits rolled.

He told the show's star that Jordan was vocal about his interest in women (other women, of course) around the Las Vegas casinos and that the model thought he'd be settling if he endedup with Becca.

Jordan, of course, denied these accusations, going so far as to call David "worse than Arie," the Bachelor who shattered her heart into a million pieces a few months ago.

Becca is with Chris R.

Still, this alleged “settling” remark triggered Kufrin due to previous entanglement in the Arie Luyendyk Jr.-Lauren Burnham love triangle that ended with those two engaged...

... and Becca stuck as The Bachelorette, dealing with losers such as Jordan and David.

With these suitors continuing to go at it, Becca said she felt like she was “back in sixth grade" and she sent David home, explaining that Jordan was at least attempting to be open and honest.

As their now-one-on-one date continued, though, the only things he could talk about were himself, modeling and how Zoolander was "extremely accurate."

Therefore, Becca sent Jordan home, too, prompting celebration from the other men.

Good riddance to those two... and hello to Wayne Newton!

Bachelorette Men

The legendary singer crashed Becca’s group date to help the suitors  write their own romantic lyrics to the tune of “Danke Schoen.”

Most of them bombed, of course, but Chris’ performance sort of impressed the audience and Becca.

He was confident and laidback during the afterparty, biding his time to talk to The Bachelorette herself, acting pretty much the total opposite of Jordan.

Elsewhere, Blake told Becca he was falling in love with her -- and Becca echoed his sentiments to the camera. 

So when Becca gave Blake the rose, Chris ended up “shook," to use his expression.

Becca Kufrin and a Rose

Chris figured he was obviously being sent home and threatened to pack his bags and leave immediately, telling viewers that Becca would be making a big mistake if she let him go.

In other words, he no longer wanted to do the damn thing with her, not after this misguided slight.

At the cocktail party, Chris tried to steal time with Becca while she was talking to Wills... much to the latter's disdain. This led to another spat between suitors.

Eventually, Becca sought out Chris for more one-on-one time later, where he assured her that he wanted to be there. He was just frustrated when he made his earlier comments.

Convinced pretty easily by him, Becca gave Chris a rose and told John to go home instead.

We were surprised by this decision.

Finally, Colton and Becca went on a camel safari during their one-on-one date, talking openly about that silly Tia drama and what the concept of love meant to each of them.

Colton didn’t believe in saying this word lightly.

But then he went ahead and said the following in a subsequent confessional:

“I can confidently say I’m falling in love with Becca.”

Of course he is. It's been, like, a whole five weeks after all.

Kufrin felt she and Colton were on the same page, although she didn't drop any L Bombs, so she gave him a rose.

What will this mean going forward? All we can do is wait and stay tuned.

Jersey Shore Recap: The Sitch Is Getting Hitched!

The first season of Jersey Shore Family Vacation (or the seventh season of Jersey Shore, depending on your perspective) has excelled at taking a single event and stretching it out into an entire episode's worth of genuinely entertaining content.

While creative editing certainly plays a role, the cast deserves most of the credit for filling the downtime with lol-worthy capering and quotables.

Mike Sorrentino Proposes to Lauren Pesce

The crew clicks like few other casts in the history of reality television, and when they're firing on all cylinders, it's like watching the guido Golden State Warriors in action.

Take last night's episode, for example.

Mike popped the question to Lauren Pesce -- which we already knew was gonna happen -- and Ronnie went full goth teen, basically lying in bed for the entire episode.

That's it.

And yet somehow, it was a pretty engaging (no pun intended) hour of television.

Mike recruited the whole crew to assist with his proposal, which was definitely the right move from the viewers' perspective.

The Situation Proposes!

It's great that the Sitch has turned his life around, but we don't tune in to Shore for an hour of a tee-totaling middle-aged dude waxing philosophical, ya know?

Some questionable decisions were made (the all-white engagement outfits for the guys; loading Lauren up on booze before she goes out to dinner with her relatively newly-sober boyfriend), but in the end, it all worked out.

Mike and Lauren got engaged, in the sort of genuinely amusing scene we don't typically associate with Jersey Shore.

“You’re my best friend, my college sweetheart, my better half. You make me a better person,” Sorrentino told Pesce.

“Please make me the happiest man on Earth. Will you please marry me?”

The couple stated that they plan to work on making little baby Sitches as soon as they tie the knot.

The Situation Proposes!

Here's hoping Sorrentino can stay out of prison in order to be there for his family.

And that's not our way of slipping in Ronnie-esque dig at the Sitch.

Mike surely made some bad decisions, but he seems to finally be on the right path, and we hope the judge in his case will take that into consideration.

Speaking of Ronnie, we guess he had a premonition about just how ugly his relationship with Jen Harley would get, because dude is seriously bummed about the prospect of going back to the real world.

In the same way that the original Shore captured the carefree frivolity of your twenties, Family Vacation serves as a reminder that your thirties are loaded with stress and obligations that are never far from your mind, even on vacay.

Fortunately, Pauly D is always there to lighten the load with some amusing catchphrases.
