Wendy Williams Announces Illness, Leave of Absence

We often make fun of Wendy Williams.

And for mostly a very good reason:

She really does suck a whole lot.

Wendy Williams Looks On

This is someone who spends every single talk show saying cruel things about other celebrities.

And not just cruel thing, but REALLY cruel things that have no basis in fact.

She just speculates wildly about stars and topics in the news, even saying at one recent point that she is sick of the #MeToo Movement and slamming Kylie Jenner's baby as ugly.

Williams just does not come across as a very good person.

All that said, we don't wish her any kind of physical harm. We aren't monsters, folks.

This is why we'd like to send Wendy our best wishes in light of the news she shared this morning with her studio audience.

Wendy Williams Looks Stunned

Williams has confirmed a diagnosis of hyperthyroidism and Graves’ disease for herself.

As a result, you won't be seeing her on the small screen any time in the near future.

“My doctor has prescribed - are you ready? - three weeks of vacation,” she told viewers after detailing her symptoms, which include difficulty sleeping and irritability.

She added: “I was pissed. Encore performances, really?”

Hey, Wendy, one's health always comes first. Remember that.

Williams explained that Graves’ disease squeezes the muscles behind the eyeballs and said she thinks she experienced this symptom because she was focusing on her work AND on her son's college applications.

She is such a trooper.

“I’ll be back in two [weeks]," Williams added, saying randomly and annoyingly:

"I’m not an heiress - who is going to pay my bills? Are you serious? I’m just saying, I come from working class.”

Wendy Williams Sucks A Lot

Yeah. You're a millionaire, Wendy. Just shut up already.

In a statement to various entertainment news outlets, the talk show said the following:

Wendy is a true champion and has never missed a day of work. But her health and well-being must be put before all else.

Wendy has been openly dealing with her Graves’ disease for many years in addition to hyperthyroidism. Yesterday, Wendy’s doctor prescribed a necessary three weeks of rest to get her levels and medication in sync.

The show will be in repeats during this unplanned hiatus. A live show was produced today so that Wendy could speak directly to her fans and explain her condition.

Williams concluded her message by again stating that Oprah is fat.

Just kidding.

She instead told women (not men, just women) to insure they always have an eye on their health.

“What I want to say to women, more than men, is stop putting everyone first because if we’re not good, they’re not good."

What a weird thing to say, right?

Williams previously had a health scare in October of last year, when she fainted during her live Halloween episode.

Producers rushed to the stage as the broadcast cut to a commercial.

When Wendy returned a few minutes later, she explained that she was dehydrated and overheated in her Statue of Liberty costume.

The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Season 8 Episode 10 Recap: Kyle Richards Ignites a Feud

Once upon a time, Kyle Richards and Lisa Vanderpump were the best of friends. 

Nowadays, their friendship is in tatters, and they are doing everything and anything to showcase that for the cameras. 

The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Season 8 Cast

When The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Season 8 Episode 10 got underway, Dorit Kemsley was busy trying to get back in good graces with Vanderpump. 

However, Dorit failed to come clean about trashing the SUR boss, and, well, the meeting went nowhere as a result. 

Enter Kyle, who was ready to reveal all to her former BFF. 

“What did she say, exactly?”, Vanderpump asks as she realizes she is in for a treat.

“Jealous and insecure, that you’re needy,” Richards responded.

Kyle Richards Waves to the Photogs

“She said I’m jealous; I’m needy, I’m insecure… what else?” Lisa asked, before adding, "That really hurts my feelings."

That was enough for Lisa to know that Kemsley was the one who had been stirring the pot. The two women vowed to confront Dorit for her actions. 

With the ladies attending a party in Dorit's honor for her appearing on some magazine cover, it was only a matter of time before the action kicked into high gear. 

It was all civil initially, with the ladies toasting to Dorit's success. You could tell Dorit was loving her ego being stroked. 

"I feel f—ed over," said Kyle who was not amused that Lisa did not stick up for herself.

L to the VP

Dorit subsequently admitted that she was out of the event, and she was heading home. 

"I don't want to be bothered with this s—," Dorit snapped at the two women before heading off. 

Then, disaster struck when LVP offered to leave with Dorit. Kyle looked like she wanted to hurl her drink at Lisa and have the ground swallow her up. 

"I mean, it was one thing not to have my back inside," Kyle explained in a confessional.

"But now Lisa is offering a ride to Dorit, who's been gossiping about her? Lisa completely holds me to a different standard. Anytime I have ever said anything remotely unflattering; she has punished me."

Lisa Vanderpump at People's Choice Awards

"It doesn't matter what's gone down," Vanderpump responded.

"I believe Dorit, and my relationship and friendship supersedes anything that has been said. If she is insistent on going home on her own in a taxi, then I will be going with her."

Dorit eventually agreed to get on the bus back to the hotel with everyone else, but Kyle was mad. 

"I don't want you to cry," Vanderpump admitted, but Kyle was not ready to back the eff down.

"Just leave me the f— alone, Lisa," she says. "Leave me the f— alone."

Kyle Richards Photograph

"I know for a fact that what Dorit has said upset Lisa and hurt her feelings," Richards said in a confessional. "I'm not even mad at Dorit anymore; I'm confused by [Vanderpump's] behavior."

The ladies failed to resolve their differences and opted instead to retreat to bed. 

Will they fight another day?

Teen Mom OG Recap: Ryan Edwards Gets Married! Again!

On Teen Mom OG Season 5 Episode 12, a couple prepared to tie the knot, but that wasn't the only notable event on the MTV hit.

Not by a long shot.

Would Farrah's latest altercation with producers spell the end of her time on the show on Teen Mom OG Season 5 Episode 12?

Would Tyler man up and get his father into rehab? Would Amber be able to handle the bombshell she had to drop on Leah?

If you watch Teen Mom OG online, you recall that Ryan Edwards and Mackenzie Standifer’s first wedding day was ... unusual.

They married in a parking lot with only his parents on hand, with Ryan having driven there high as a kite no less. On camera.

Obviously, they still have plenty of issues and obstacles to overcome, but this time, at least there was no wedding controversy.

Fans may be a little upset, though, by the fact that before the ceremony, Ryan Edwards was seen drinking with his groomsmen.

Harmless? Perhaps, but for a man with obvious addiction issues, it's sure to raise red flags with some viewers, for good reason.

Asked about his wedding vows, Ryan told his friends, “I don’t care, it’s not like it’s got to be perfect.” They were pretty close.

“I promise to always love you, be your best friend, I promise to be faithful and always be there for you,” he told Mackenzie.

Standifer had a prepared speech. Slightly awkward.

Ryan at His Wedding

Later, Ryan admitted to his wife that he’s drunk; Edwards and Standifer proceeded to take shots and talk about their financial situation.

Ryan's father then gave a speech that made him cry.

That was pretty emotional, as was the scene last night were Tyler Baltierra’s long-troubled father, Butch, finally enters rehab.

Butch cried when he learned that his son had come up with the exorbitant amount of money to cover the treatment, in full.

At the rehab center, one of the administrators says to Tyler that it’s probably been a long time since he’s really met his dad.

“I don’t think I’ve ever met him,” he responds.

Tyler Baltierra Selfie

For his part, Butch confessed that he's done “a lot” of cocaine and crack in life and was on drugs as recently as “3-4 days ago.”

Terrifying. Speaking of family drama, Farrah Abraham put her differences with her mother aside to celebrate Debra‘s birthday.

At least she tried. Could it possibly last?

Deb pleads for Farrah to attend her wedding, which Sophia finally decides she's allowed to, so that's a step in the right direction.

However, after Abraham's “vaginal rejuvenation” (seriously), Deb was left waiting in the car for a half hour as Farrah got ready.

Farrah Abraham Gets Sexy

When she finally got in the car, Farrah proceeded to freak the f--k out on a producer for reasons that weren't entirely clear.

While Farrah's insane treatment of producers has been well documented, it's never not amazing to watch it play out on TV.

“If you can’t get along with anyone or try to or get in my way of how I live my f--king life," she says, "then do not work with me."

"F--k you and your excuses.”

Farrah Abraham, ladies and gentlemen. Never a dull moment or an episode that passes without a complete meltdown.

The Bachelor Recap: And Then There Were Three …

Arie Luyendyk Jr. went on four magical hometown dates this week on The Bachelor. But only three women would earn roses to advance.

Were The Bachelor spoilers on point, as they have been all season long, regarding which three bachelorettes earned overnight dates?

While speculation continues to swirl about Arie ending his engagement after the finale, we're still a few weeks away from that conclusion.

When The Bachelor Season 22 Episode 8 kicked off, Arie expressed the usual reservations about meeting the four women's families.

After all, protective fathers and father figures are never lacking, and Lauren Burnham’s dad, a military man, was true to form Monday.

No, he didn't threaten to “f--king kill” Arie to his face, as ABC's promos implied, but he was dead serious about protecting his daughter.

We can sort of see where Lauren gets her personality from after watching the first half of her hometown date. It was quiet. And awkward.

Lauren Burnham Photo

Eventually, though, they did warm up to him - surprisingly, more so than some of the other families he met, or at least about the same. 

He seems to be falling for Lauren Burnham more than the other three combined, although Becca Kufrin might argue with that comment.

On her hometown date, Becca's uncle stepped in to fill the role of father figure, as he has in her life ever since her father passed away.

Ultimately, Arie talked Uncle Gary off the fence as well, while the adorable Minnesota native continued to charm him around the clock.

Becca could be a dark horse to win this.

Becca Kufrin

Meanwhile, Kendall Long showed Arie how to mount a taxidermy rat, which you'd think would've been the weirdest part of their date.

But then we met her twin sister ... Kylie.

Yes, Kendall and Kylie. Unfortunately, the show didn't attempt to pass Kylie off as Kendall to fool him, or make Kardashian quips.

In Arkansas, Tia Booth's family did a little Internet research before he came to Weiner and found out a bit about Arie’s playboy past.

Arie denied that he was a playboy, chalking it up to being on TV and in the tabloids and whatnot. They largely believed his story.

Tia Booth

Unfortunately for Tia, who seems as open to marrying Arie as anyone, his decision on whom to send home came down to her.

He struggled with this decision, partly because he genuinely cares for all four women, and also because he can't commit. At all.

Just putting that out there.

Arie pulled Kendall aside before the rose ceremony to ask if she was really ready for this. She was still unsure ... but got a rose anyway!

Instead, a devastated Tia is heading back to the Natural State in a state of confusion as to how Kendall got an overnight date instead.

Celebrity Big Brother Recap: A Twist Rocks the House!

It was only a matter of time before Celebrity Big Brother threw in some more twists to shake up the house. 

The latest of which involved a viewer vote that decided which special power the veto would possess. 

Julie Evicts Another Celebrity

When the crazy episode kicked off, Omarosa's plan to plant seeds of doubt around the house was working. 

This resulted in the mother of all arguments when Brandi accidentally exposed her four-person alliance to the rest of the house. Marissa was furious, but she had to just play along with it. 

What could she really do without painting an even bigger target on her back? 

The Veto competition found Brandi, Marissa, Metta World Peace, Ross, Omarosa and Mark McGrath duking it out to try and win. During the competition, however, it became apparent that Metta was not even trying. 

Omarosa Manigault

Instead, he was throwing his blocks around instead of creating the puzzle. Just when it seemed that Omarosa was going to slide into victory, Ross won. 

Thanks to the viewer vote, Ross could take a second person off the block. He took himself off and left Brandi up there. 

It quickly became clear why: Metta had already told the house he wanted to leave that night. If you keep up to speed with the live feeds, you will know the sporting champion has already attempted to break out of the house. 

Omarosa put Metta up next to Brandi on the block. Metta thanked everyone and pleaded with them to send him out the door. 

Omarosa Is Fierce

Brandi refused to campaign because she knew Metta was going. What followed was a dull elimination ceremony.

“I just want to say… Thank you, Metta, for wanting to go home,” Brandi said with a laugh. 

This is the second time a houseguest has wanted to go home. This eviction should have been fun because it was going to split up the four-person alliance. Instead, it was a dud because another houseguest wanted to quit. 

In any case, everything is up in the air as we head into the latest HOH competition. Omarosa will likely be left in the game a little while longer as the majority alliance will likely target James. 

James Maslow Is Cool

It sure seemed like James, Mark and Omarosa were not working together. James and Mark seemed to be agreeing to work with her to save themselves, and it was only a short-term deal. 

What did you think of the latest episode of Celebrity Big Quitter?

Who do you want to win the game?

Sister Wives Season 9 Episode 6 Recap: Meeting Mariah’s Girlfriend

Mariah and Meri Brown have been on the outs for some time now. 

On Sister Wives Season 9 Episode 6, Mariah invited the family to join her and her girlfriend on a march for women in D.C. 

When Mariah confirmed to her nearest and dearest that she was gay, Meri did not take it all that well. 

If you watch Sister Wives online, you will know that Meri has been an emotional wreck ever since the catfish scandal rocked the family a few years back. 

This changed Meri's stance with the family forever, and she has yearned to branch out and forge her own path ever since. 

Meri felt like she should have been told about Mariah's sexuality sooner, and that's why there are still issues in the mother-daughter relationship. 

Meri Brown Poses With a Chair

Despite this, Mariah wanted to work at the relationship, and Meri and Janelle were invited along to the march. 

Enter Kody, who was not impressed to hear about the march. The reason for all of it was that his friend was pressing on with a march of his own about legalizing polygamy. 

Without thinking, Kody admitted that the LGBTQ community already had more rights than their family and that they would be wise to focus on legalizing polygamy. 

Meri was not about to allow Kody to mess with her relationship with Mariah, so she told him she would be going to help Mariah out.

There was also the issue of their being drama between Janelle and Meri. The family will likely never get over the catfishing scandal, and that's why Meri is ready to move on. 

Mariah Brown, Audrey Kriss

However, Janelle shocked everyone when she did not invite Meri to a family gathering for her son coming home on leave. That was another insight into just how fraught Meri's relationship with the family is. 

Because of all of the drama, Meri and Janelle debated whether they should even attend the march together. The last thing they wanted was to find themselves in a fight. 

The two women decided to air out their thoughts about everything that had been happening. It was a therapeutic process, and the pair seemed to put the past behind them. 

Meri Brown photo

It was about time. They attended the March and were introduced to Audrey, Mariah's girlfriend. It all went well, but Mariah was on edge. She expected something to go wrong. 

It's always tricky meeting the parents, but Audrey was lovely, and the mothers could openly admit that. They were even happy with Mariah's signs. 

While some were out there, Mariah kept hers reserved because she wanted to send a message to the people they were protesting about. 

Janelle Brown in Black

How long will it be before the drama kicks off again?

The Real Housewives of Atlanta Season 10 Episode 13 Recap: Livin’ La Villa Loca

Cynthia Bailey wanted to go all out for her 50th birthday celebrations on The Real Housewives of Atlanta Season 10 Episode 13

That's why she and most of her gal pals made their way to Barcelona. Kim Zolciak decided against the event because her husband was not allowed to attend. 

Kenya Moore decided against it because, well, she's a bit all over the place right now and tends to get herself embroiled in all the drama. 

When the ladies touched down in Barcelona, they were shocked to learn the place they were staying was not ready for them to arrive. 

That meant they got to go to a hotel to indulge in some fine dining and talk some smack about their co-stars. 

Shamea wasted no time in getting some goodies from Eva aka the newest housewife on the block. Shamea wanted to know what Eva's boyfriend thought about Eva dating women. 

That's when Eva snapped. She reiterated that she had sexual relations with females, but confirmed she had never dated women. 

It was hilarious and a bit out there that Shamea would even bring it up, but she needed to make a lasting impression on the producers. 

NeNe Leakes at the Airport

NeNe Leakes then took Cynthia to task for believing her boyfriend, Will over Porsha Williams. If you watch The Real Housewives of Atlanta online, you will know that NeNe and Porsha have been at odds for some time. 

That's why it was bizarre for NeNe to open up about it and publicly defend one of her sworn enemies. Cynthia confirmed the reason she did not believe Porsha was because she has lied in the past. 

That may be the case, but there was more than just Porsha there. Cynthia then stooped to a new low when she said that Kandi tried to drug and rape her. 

Porsha Williams Smiling

Porsha was pissed that everything was being brought back up, and decided to exit the dinner date. There are only so many times your name can be dragged through the mud, it seems. 

NeNe continued to try and stir up some drama between her and Kim. She brought up the fact that Kim has a knack for promoting her life as perfect. 

She then went on to say that Kim had a stroke, heart surgery, and cancer. 

That was enough to make Porsha, Sheree and Shamea call up Kim from around the world to let her know NeNe was trashing her to everyone. 

Kim Zolciak Crazy Hair

“She’s f—king scum, and I won’t even acknowledge it,” Kim said after denying everything. “What she really needs to worry about is the f—king roaches in her house!”

All seemed to be calm ... until Kim sent a scathing text message to the ladies at the next event. 

“NeNe is sick and disgusting,” she began. “She lives in a f—king roach nest.” Kim then shared the video of the roaches apparently inside NeNe's house. 

"F—k Kim, OK?” Nene said. “All of my s—t is brand new!” 

NeNe Leakes on The Real Housewives of Atlanta Season 10

Kim then sent a picture of NeNe parked in an accessible parking spot and NeNe was mad. 

She called Kim a “disgusting, bald-head bitch.”

Yes, the feud is still going on, you guys!

What did you think of all the drama?

Celebrity Big Brother Recap: Brandi Glanville Asked Omarosa WHAT?!

Brandi Glanville is not one to follow a crowd. 

That's why we rolled our eyes when we heard she had been cast on the first season of Celebrity Big Brother. For better or worse, she's managed to find herself in a good spot in the game. 

Brandi Glanville, Big Hair

She's in a four-person alliance with Ross Matthews, Marissa Jaret Winokur, and Ariadna Gutierre. In short, the four are calling the shots in the house because they know the game. 

Going into Friday's eviction spectacular, we knew that Shannon Elizabeth was public enemy number one, and was likely headed back to the outside world. She played too hard too soon, and it came back to bite her. 

But Brandi decided to change things up at the vote, and you can tell it's going to cause a lot of drama between the houseguests. But that was not her craziest moment in the episode. 

Brandi Cleavage

At the top of the hour, Brandi decided it was time to get some insider facts about Donald Trump. That found her asking Omarosa whether she had indulged in sexual relations with the President of the United States. 

"Hell no!” Omarosa replied, clearly disgusted. “That’s horrible.”

Brandi admitted that a rumor she heard a rumor that Trump slept with a contestant during filming for The Apprentice. It was a hilarious moment that almost made me want to sign up to watch the live feeds. 

Omarosa Manigault

Shannon realized her game was over, but Omarosa was not about to let her go down without a fight. Omarosa and Shannon buried the hatchet and decided to be friends. 

That's when Omarosa realized she could create paranoia in the house. To do this, she went to James and told him that things were changing and that he was the target. 

It was apparently a tactic to make James look crazy to the other houseguests. It failed, however, and the four-person alliance admitted to Omarosa's face they thought she was lying about not doing anything. 

Omarosa, Celebrity Big Brother Season 1

We then got to the Veto competition which found the houseguests in a dark restaurant and trying to get out in the best time. Shannon took an early advantage, but James emerged as the winner. 

As expected, he used the Veto on himself, and Mark was thrown up on the block next to Shannon. 

When we got to the vote, Shannon decided to speak about animal rights instead of pleading her case to stay in the game. It was a classy move, and it showed she wanted to use the platform to promote animal welfare. 

Eviction 3 Results:

  • Ross Mathews votes to evict: Shannon 
  • Marissa Jaret Winokur votes to evict: Shannon 
  • Omarosa votes to evict: Shannon
  • James Maslow: votes to evict: Shannon
  • Brandi Glanville votes to evict: Mark 
  • Metta World Peace votes to evict: Shannon

Shannon is evicted!

Shannon Elizabeth Poses

The houseguests seemed surprised by the hinky vote. It looked like Brandi did not want Shannon to go out with a whole house against her, so she tried to give her a vote. 

We left the houseguests as they participated in an endurance HOH competition. 

What did you think of the episode?

Should Shannon have left?

Celebrity Big Brother Spoilers: Who Won Veto? Who Is Going Home?

It's been a tense few days in the Big Brother house ever since American Pie actress, Shannon Elizabeth was nominated alongside Big Time Rush star James Maslow. 

With the pair growing closer, the target on both of them has ballooned of late, and with Ariadna Gutiérrez in power, they were both sent to the block at the nominations ceremony. 

Shannon Elizabeth On Celebrity Big Brother

Brandi Glanville, Omarosa, Marissa Jaret Winokur and Ross Matthews have been gunning to get Shannon out of the house for about a week now, and they got closer to their plan over the last few days. 

Before we got to the Veto competition, Omarosa started chatting with Shannon about where they both went wrong in the game. It resulted in the two ladies making up with each other. 

Omarosa then agreed to try and find a way to save Shannon from eviction. The reason? Omarosa has been vocal that she does not want the men to rule the game, and she fears that is about to happen. 

Omarosa Manigault

Despite Omarosa's pleas, everyone seemed against the idea of saving Shannon from elimination. The common consensus in the house is that Shannon is going to win if she sticks around. 

Ari, James, Shannon, Ross, Omarosa, and Brandi. It was the Black Box competition that found the houseguests performing a solo task inside a dark room. 

James secured the veto win, and it seemed to secure Shannon's fate as the next evicted houseguest. Last night, however, Brandi (of all people!) started to wonder whether it was really worth sending Shannon home. 

James Maslow Poses

This seemed brought on by the way James was parading around the house boasting that he won a competition. James even floated the idea of using the Veto on Shannon if he had the votes to stay in the game. 

Brandi headed to bed, but not before she told Shannon she might have a plan to save her. Yes, we are very shocked to hear this, and so was Ari. Ari tried to shut Brandi down, but if you watch The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills online, you will know there is no way to stop Brandi from talking. 

With that, Metta even offered Shannon to work with her if she miraculously stayed in the game. That's huge, but we'll need to tune in on Friday to find out what James does with the Veto. 

Shannon Elizabeth Poses

There's also the possibility that viewers will be voting instead of the house during Friday's eviction. Julie Chen confirmed on Monday that viewers would be voting on a game-changing twist shortly. 

Shannon is likely a big draw for the show, so we would not put it past the producers to try and keep her in the game. She and Omarosa rising to power would make for a fun second half of the season. 

What do you think of the latest round of Big Brother spoilers?

Celebrity Big Brother Recap: Did Brandi Glanville Go Too Far?!

Keshia Knight Pulliam may have left the Big Brother house on Monday night, but we got more insight than ever before into her big decision to get the house to send her packing. 

We flashed back to the hours leading up to the eviction, and Keshia revealed all to her alliance about the depleted breast milk. It was the first time we have ever witnessed an expression on Brandi Glanville's face. 

Ross Matthews, Shannon Elizabeth

She was annoyed because this was supposed to be the time to send Shannon Elizabeth out in a backdoor eviction. Brandi ran her mouth like she was still on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, before ultimately making peace with the decision. 

Before the HOH competition got underway, Brandi chatted about the way she spoke to Keshia and said she knew that they would be friends when they reunited on the outside. 

Yeah, you keep telling yourself that, Brandi. This is a game, and it should not be made personal. Brandi has been catty all season long and has wanted to get Shannon out for no apparent reason. 

Brandi Cleavage

Shannon seemed confused about why Keshia was trying to blow her game up during her eviction speech. Those who thought Shannon Elizabeth was a great player should probably exit stage left. 

During the HOH competition, Shannon took an early lead, and everyone aside from James looked annoyed. As soon as Ariadna emerged victoriously from the competition, everyone was a little too excited for her. 

That did not do much to make Shannon's paranoia disappear. She knew there was some backstab in the works, and that's why she tried to speak to her supposed allies about what was coming. 

Shannon Elizabeth Poses

However, her allies made sure Ariadna was never alone without either Omarosa or Metta, and that made it difficult for Shannon to get an answer. 

Before the nominations ceremony, the penny dropped for Shannon that she would never find a role as big as the one she had in American Pie. We're totally kidding about that last part. 

Shannon figured it all out and said some words right before Ariadna confirmed who was on the block. Brandi countered that Shannon was cutting deals with the others. 

Ariadna Gutierrez Poses

Shannon balked at this idea and was subsequently put on the block next to James. It looks like Shannon's time in the Big Brother house is coming to a dramatic close!

In any case, it looks like the producers are trying to give Shannon another chance. The reason? A game-changing vote is coming our way in the next few days. 

Wouldn't it be great if it affected the next eviction? What if the viewers could vote instead of the house?

Shannon Elizabeth Smiles

That would shake things up and give Shannon a fighting chance.

The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Season 8 Episode 9 Recap: That Was Weird

The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills has seen better days. The most recent season has struggled to move along at a brisk pace because there's been a little too much of the ladies sitting around. 

Seriously, it's like the budget's been slashed and the ladies are being told to stay in one location for longer. If the producers want to tighten the show's budget, they should probably think of letting go of some of the longest-serving cast members. 

When The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Season 8 Episode 9 got underway, we picked up with the ladies at Teddi Mellencamp's beach house, and boy, it was one boring get-together. 

While the rager was anything but that, the ladies all seemed to get on well. It was odd but different. Erika was MIA because she had some horrible period pains, and decided she would have a better sleep at a local hotel. 

This gave the other ladies a platform to talk smack about her. The common consensus seemed to be that it was "weird" she couldn't just stay in the beach house and weather the storm. 

Erika Girardi/Jayne

When Erika showed up the next morning, it was like all of the women were on edge because they knew one of them was going to reveal all about the girl squad dragging Erika the night before. 

Teddi then decided it was time for the ladies to work out. Erika and Dorit decided against it. The only plausible reason for Dorit to steer clear of the exercise regime was that she was going to tell all to Erika. 

Boy, she did not hold back. Could you imagine how much worse this season could have been without Dorit's loose lips? I mean, it would be duller than The Real Housewives of Miami, and that was dull. 

Camille Grammer is Angry

When Erika decided to have it out with the ladies, Camille went straight for Dorit. She knew Dorit was awful because she called her the c-word a few weeks back.

Erika was most mad at Kyle because she felt like they were really good friends before that crazy night. It quickly became clear that Dorit brought it up because of the sparring she did with Erika over pantygate. 

Still, it's difficult to agree with Dorit at the best of times because of her blatant snobbery towards the other housewives. The more likely reason for all of this drama is that Dorit wanted to secure her contract for the next season. 

Teddi Jo Mellencamp Loves to Sweat

The good thing about the fight was that it allowed the ladies to hash out their differences before they made their way to New York for some Fashion Week fun. 

The ladies split up to do their own thing, but Dorit wasted no time in getting Lisa Rinna up to speed about what she's missed. Yes, she totally stirred the pot once again. 

This time, however, she went after Lisa Vanderpump for everything that happened when Lisa left the restaurant. This is going to be interesting. Rinna is not going to keep her mouth shut.

Teen Mom OG Recap: Insane in the Brain

Monday on Teen Mom OG, Amber and Andrew got into a major tiff, while Farrah and her mom continued to butt heads over Deb's wedding.

Also, Catelynn confirmed she was pregnant again, but not everybody reacted to the seemingly joyous news how you might expect.

When Teen Mom OG Season 5 Episode 10 got underway, Amber finally announced her baby news to her friends and family members.

If you watch Teen Mom OG online, you know that there's always more drama ahead, though, and Andrew Glennon delivered.

Amber disagreed with his “hippie” suggestion that they wait to find out the gender of their child, and an explosive argument followed.

Not surprisingly, Amber won out in the end.

The family then celebrated Halloween with her daughter, Leah, along with Leah's father Gary Shirley, and his wife, Kristina Anderson.

Gary Shirley on Teen Mom OG

The haunted hayride looked fun, but things turned a little more serious (and awkward) when Gary expressed his concern for Amber.

Regarding her pregnancy, he even took a dig at her and the timeline of her latest romance, saying, “hopefully it’s not Matt's!"

Hopefully not, indeed. Kristina weighed in that “I think there was a break between Matt and Andrew, I think, I don’t know!”

None of us really do.

Indeed, fans have speculated that Amber’s baby could possibly be Matt’s, but there's nothing to suggest that rumor is true.

Ryan Edwards of Teen Mom

Down in the Volunteer State, Maci Bookout and Ryan Edwards were still trying to figure out a custody agreement, and butting heads.

Since he has yet to take a drug test - her requirement for him to see Bentley more often - there's still an impasse in that regard.

Just the same, Maci and Ryan kept up their tradition of taking Bentley trick-or-treating together with his grandparents, Jen and Larry.

At least that was the plan.

When Maci changed the time, Ryan, Mackenzie Standifer, and her son, Hudson, were not able to join the festivities. Ryan was pissed.

Ryan alleged that Maci intentionally wanted to sabotage the plans and exclude him, though Maci claimed this was not the case.

Separately, she told husband Taylor McKinney that she didn’t know anything about Ryan and Mackenzie’s scheduling issues.

Either way, another day, another drama.

On a bittersweet note, considering what we know has happened since this was filmed, Catelynn Lowell was celebrating her pregnancy.

At the same time, she and Tyler Baltierra were dealing with the emotionally heavy subject of sending his father Butch back to rehab.

Fortunately for Butch, this time it was voluntary, not court-ordered; Cate and Tyler were also behind him 100% - and $48,000 worth.

That's a lot of confidence in his ability to take it seriously, but it seemed like he was, even if he was feeling anxious about the process.

We wish him the best.

As for Cate, we know she miscarried, and that Lowell is in rehab again as well as part of her ongoing battle with mental health problems.

Finally, Farrah Abraham heard from none other than Jenelle Evans of Teen Mom 2 fame, who reached out to her about Deb's wedding.

What does Jenelle have to do with it?

Apparently, Evans' ex-husband, Courtland Rogers, was invited to Farrah's mother's upcoming nuptials ... which makes literally no sense.

Farrah, naturally, was confused, and did the logical thing - calling up Debbo on FaceTime and putting her on blast over this move.

Despite the verbal reprimand, Debra decided to stand by her decision about Courtland being invited, which still makes no sense, but hey:

Very little about Farrah's world does.

Teen Mom OG Recap: Insane in the Brain

Monday on Teen Mom OG, Amber and Andrew got into a major tiff, while Farrah and her mom continued to butt heads over Deb's wedding.

Also, Catelynn confirmed she was pregnant again, but not everybody reacted to the seemingly joyous news how you might expect.

When Teen Mom OG Season 5 Episode 10 got underway, Amber finally announced her baby news to her friends and family members.

If you watch Teen Mom OG online, you know that there's always more drama ahead, though, and Andrew Glennon delivered.

Amber disagreed with his “hippie” suggestion that they wait to find out the gender of their child, and an explosive argument followed.

Not surprisingly, Amber won out in the end.

The family then celebrated Halloween with her daughter, Leah, along with Leah's father Gary Shirley, and his wife, Kristina Anderson.

The haunted hayride looked fun, but things turned a little more serious (and awkward) when Gary expressed his concern for Amber.

Regarding her pregnancy, he even took a dig at her and the timeline of her latest romance, saying, “hopefully it’s not Matt's!"

Hopefully not, indeed. Kristina weighed in that “I think there was a break between Matt and Andrew, I think, I don’t know!”

None of us really do.

The Bachelor Recap: Arie’s Final Four Revealed!

Arie Luyendyk Jr.'s Bachelor JOURNEY has reached the final four. Would The Bachelor spoilers be proven correct as to their identities?

NOTE: If you haven't read The Bachelor spoilers, there's a lot of chatter about who we see Arie Luyendyk engaged to ... and more.

On The Bachelor Season 22 Episode 7, Arie Luyendyk Jr. and his seven remaining women traveled to Tuscany. The stakes?

Four roses, three tickets home. No pressure at all.

The first one-on-one date went to Becca K., who wasted no time in admitting that she’s falling for him and wants to take him home.

That got the job done, to the surprise of no one. She's been a favorite from the start, albeit slightly under the radar. Still is.

More surprising is the fact that Jacqueline is still around, having received so little screen time until last week's installment.

The Bachelor: Rebecca

Not surprising, we suppose, is the fact that she's having doubts about whether her relationship with Arie is at the right point yet.

Believing that she's not confident enough in their future to warrant a hometown date, Jacqueline ultimately sends herself home.

Well, that will make his life simpler at least.

The next one-on-one date went to Lauren B., who is still struggling with the fact that she was engaged before and heartbroken.

She’s starting to fall in love with him, though, and despite how awkward her confession got, he said that he's just really nervous.

The Bachelor: Lauren B

Arie said he's “falling so deeply in love” with her and that he feels vulnerable as a result. Lauren B. may just be the one for him.

Seinne is not the one for him. Despite a really nice, random Italian family-oriented date, Arie's just not there with her just yet.

As a result, she was cut loose without a rose.

That means Bekah, Tia and Kendall were left vying for the final two roses on a dramatic, winner-take-all 3-on-1 group date.

Bekah opened up about struggling with being away from home; Tia struggled with the fact that Bekah is still on the show.

The Bachelor: Tia

Repeatedly questioning whether this 22-year-old could possibly ready for something serious, she even brought it up with Arie.

Tia then told Bekah that she relayed this to Arie, causing Bekah to break down and cry in Arie's arms. Not overdramatic at all.

The really winner of this exchange? Kendall.

She got a rose without hesitation after this display, while Tia and Bekah continued their race to the bottom in pursuit of this guy.

At the end of the date, Tia survived and got the rose, leaving Bekah crushed, and not just because she's on a missing persons report.

Who do you think will win the final rose?

Will it be the newly-minted frontrunner Lauren B., the consistently strong Becca K., or one of the dark horses, Tia and Kendall?

Is there an epic twist in store for us?

Hit the comments below to discuss, and pour a little Zinfandel out for Bekah M. Hope she's doing okay back on the marijuana farm.

Sister Wives Season 9 Episode 5 Recap: PolygaMexicamist Wedding

It was finally time for the big day!

On Sister Wives Season 9 Episode 5, Mykelti and Tony tied the knot, and the day did not go to plan. 

The episode kicked off with the family meeting up at the Country Club to get things sorted for the wedding.  

Mykelti decided to keep Kodi away from the early preparation.

The reason?

She did not want her overbearing father complaining about every single thing she did. Weddings are stressful enough, so we are inclined to agree with Mykelti on this one. 

This wedding has been talked about for quite some time now. If you watch Sister Wives online, you will know that the family balked at the idea initially. 

Mykelti Brown & Antonio Padron are Married!

That's because both Mykelti and Tony did not know enough about each other to be getting that close so swiftly. 

While the wedding was scheduled to go ahead outdoors, they were forced to rethink that because the weather was just not going in their favor. 

They would have benefited from running through all of the possible things that could go wrong on the day, so they were prepared, but they did not. 

Luckily, the duo managed to find ways to keep everyone warm despite the horrific weather. They did the best they could with what little time they had. 

Mykelti Brown and Antonio "Tony" Padron

Just when it seemed like everything was going well, we got the revelation that Christine had forgotten Kody's shirts. Yes, you would think these people would be more prepared. 

Kody needed to be at the event on time because he was the one to walk Mykelti down the aisle. In short, the day could not have gone any worse. 

The wedding kicked off, and all seemed right in the world. They quickly got the wedding over and done with, but there was drama afoot. 

Kody was worried about any of the kids getting sick due to the adverse weather and made his thoughts known to Mykelti. 

Kody Brown Shows Off His Chair

Even though it seemed like everyone but Toni was worrying initially, we later found out that Toni was petrified of them running out of food. 

You can't have a wedding without food, right?

Christine later got to belt her heart out to a song that her grandfather would sing to her grandmother. It was sentimental for sure, and it gave Mykelti a good feeling. 

Christine has been critical of the union for some time now. It was her way of confirming she was good with it. Christine had been battling anxiety over the performance for weeks. 

Christine Brown Sings

It took a lot from her, and she was happy she followed through with it. We are also pleased that we got to hear her singing voice once again. 

It wasn't great, but she tried her best, we guess. 

The rest of the day seemed perfect. It may have looked like the whole day was going to be as horrible as Kodi's relationship with Meri, but it all came together in the end. 

It's just a shame that the show is very likely being canceled if the rumors are true about all the wives leaving Kody behind. 

Hey, those rumors have been around since the show's inception, so we will believe it when we see it. 

What did you think of it?

Sound off below!

Sister Wives continues Sunday on TLC!

The Real Housewives of Atlanta Season 10 Episode 12 Recap: Peaches Be Trippin’

There's never a dull moment with these housewives!

On The Real Housewives of Atlanta Season 10 Episode 12, Porsha Williams was all about dialing up the drama, and it resulted in a fun hour of this Bravo hit. 

When the episode got underway, Porsha was busy doing what she does best: Running her mouth about things that have nothing to do with her. 

She could not resist planting seeds of doubt in Cynthia's head about Will. Cynthia wasted no time in confronting her man to check if he was using her. 

Cynthia was more confused than ever because she had no idea what to believe. If Cynthia is having doubts right now, she should probably get out of the relationship. 

Elsewhere, Mama Joyce reached out to Porsha because she wanted to find a way to make things right with her. Joyce's issue with Porsha stemmed from her believing everything Phaedra said.

Porsha wanted to know what was going on, and tensions started to flare up when Porsha countered that Phaedra should have known better. 

If anything, it successfully built a bridge between the two women. But how long would it be before more drama kicked off? 

With that, she threw a dinner party to try and convert more people to veganism. The "No Beef" aspect of it all was pretty hilarious. 

It meant that all of the women were finally friends with each other. Marlo, Sheree, and Kim started talking about Cynthia and her toxic relationship with Will.

The drama was not far behind, however, and Cynthia brought up the trip to Barcelona. Everyone seemed to be on board with it, except Kim. 

Kim wanted to invite Kroy with them, and that did not go down well. In the end, Kim decided to quit talking about the trip because she did not get her way. 

Kim then said she was not going on the trip. Yes, we're pretty sure Kim is going to hold it against the ladies now. 

The other big event of the episode focused on Kenya Moore. She was elated because she thought she might be pregnant. 

She and her husband had been having sex all the time, so it was a natural assumption. She seemed mad, however, when she learned the test was inconclusive. 

Kenya Moore on the Red Carpet

It seems like it would be difficult for Kenya to be pregnant and on the show. Her husband has been vocal about steering clear of the Bravo cameras. 

It has apparently put Kenya in a problematic situation with the producers. Could she be gearing up for an exit from the show that made her a household name? 

It's a possibility. These women are supposed to be revealing every detail about their life to the audience. 

What did you think of all the drama?
