Winter Everett Displays Stunning Weight Loss, Delights The Family Chantel Fans

As was revealed last month in a teaser for The Family Chantel Season 4, Winter Everett is on a body transformation journey.

Part of that was documented by the cameras — Winter is not the star of the show, but she is a fan favorite.

Said fans have kept up with Winter on social media, observing her weight loss in real time.

Now, Winter is showcasing her body transformation with before and after photos, and she looks as different as, well, summer and winter.

Even when Chantel Everett and Pedro Jimeno had not yet scored their own spinoff, their families played a major role on the show.

While The Family Chantel gets its name from Pedro’s way of referring to Chantel’s family after their blowout fight, parents and siblings continue to play a massive role on the spinoff.

And without other 90 Day Fiance couples competing for precious time during the episodes, viewers have gotten to know Winter Everett — and they like her.

Over three seasons, Winter has risen in popularity among viewers, attracting her own fan following.

Even people who don’t particularly care for her sister enjoy her.

Frankly, Winter is just a bit more relatable than Chantel. There’s a real market for that, even in the topsy-turvy world of reality television.

On Season 3, there was a lot of focus on Winter’s relationship with Jah.

Jah was regarded with trepidation by fans, especially after he had lied to her about his son — and pushed her to follow the rules of his church and adopt his “biblical diet.”

It was only when Jah pushed for an open, polygamous relationship that Winter decided to call off the engagement. After seven years, it was over.

This is when Winter’s fitness journey began in earnest.

She has now dropped more than fifty pounds.

In addition to showing off her current appearance, Winter has shared throwback looks for comparison.

“Wow! What a difference,” Winter commented on Instagram, tagging her caption: “transformationtuesday.”

Right now, her face is less “puffy” and she has a more visibly defined jawline.

We are always happy to see people more at peace with their looks and their bodies, and that certainly describes Winter.

Winter has also been seen on social media working out and doing yoga.

There is more to her weight loss journey than the bariatric weight loss surgery that she decided to do last year.

It appears that we will be following her for part of her body transformation experience during Season 4. 

The new season of The Family Chantel premieres on Monday, June 6.

While Season 9 of 90 Day Fiance should still be underway, it will continue to air on Sundays.

As much as the fandom enjoys meeting new couples and following their stories, keeping up with Chantel and Pedro’s messy families remains a treat.

Of course, the focus will not solely be on Winter.

Pedro and Chantel are reportedly in a worse place than ever, and Nicole (as always) has her own drama.

We also can’t wait to see Karen again. That woman loves being on television.

Ellen Pompeo, Fellow Grey’s Anatomy Stars Educate Fans in Roe v Wade PSA: Knowledge is Power

The rollback of human rights for millions of Americans may be only weeks away.

Earlier this month, alarm bells went off when a leaked draft from the United States Supreme Court revealed an upcoming decision to overturn the landmark case, Roe v. Wade.

Tens of millions of Americans are in states where strict laws will go into effect immediately when such a ruling is handed down.

Everyone is doing whatever they can to help — in some cases, that just means arming people with what could be life-saving information.

Shonda Rhimes has shared a video, starring the, well, stars of Grey’s Anatomy.

The PSA features appearances by Ellen Pompeop, Chandra Wilson, Kevin McKidd, Kim Raver, Kelly McCreary, Caterina Scorsone, and Kate Burton.

The video is short and affirming, and seeks to arm Americans who may be about to lose some of their fundamental human rights — depending upon which states they live in.

In some cases, the knowledge that people need is as basic as sex ed — something too few people received adequately.

“Knowledge is power. It’s time for you to be in the know,” Ellen Pompeo explains.

“Remember, you can get pregnant the first time you have sex,” she notes. “You can get pregnant if you don’t consent.”

“Get on birth control, now,” Chandra recommends to viewers.

“Any form that is reliable,” Ellen adds.

The video and Shonda Rhimes’ link direct people to the Bedsider Birth Control Support Network, which aims to help young women, ages 18 to 29, get access to birth control.

Pregnancy tests are widely available for sale, but simply knowing that they are in a nearby store is not enough if you do not have access to your full human rights.

Regardless of birth control, the video urges taking pregnancy tests every four to five weeks — no matter how careful you have been.

“Every four to five weeks may seem like a lot, but time is of the essence with the law,” Chandra cautions.

“If you find out you are pregnant and do not want to be, you have very little time,” Kevin warns.

“This is a terrible time and everyone is afraid,” he acknowledges.

Ellen chimes in: “But options keep a woman powerful. You are powerful.”

The stars of Grey’s Anatomy are far from the only ones to use their platforms to raise the alarm and spread helpful information.

Everyone from talk show hosts to models to singers to actors to activists to journalists has been speaking out.

Unfortunately, given the nature of the United States Supreme Court and the unwillingness of the other branches of government to do what is necessary to correct this looming horror, what can be done?

Well, the PSA is a start — arming people with preventative information, including tips on how to avoid upcoming hyper-strict laws.

It is important to remember that not everyone has the time or resources to travel out of state.

In some states with “trigger laws” that will go into effect after SCOTUS vacates 50 years of human rights precedent, returning home after an abortion could still lead to criminal or civil consequences.

Information can only take people so far, and only on an individual basis.

What matters is power — empowering leaders in sufficient numbers and in the right positions, leaders who will have the strength of character to fight just as hard for human rights as political malefactors fight against them.

But every little bit helps, and if even one person sees this video and uses this essential advice to access the resources that stop their life from being derailed, it is well worth it.

Luis Ruelas FINALLY Explains that Weird, Weird Shirtless "Bootcamp" Video

All season long, Teresa Giudice has been doing the most to stop people from talking about Luis Ruelas’ red flags.

He has some serious baggage, and she has barely allowed him to speak about any of it — to the detriment of his reputation.

On the Reunion special, Luis finally got to address one memorable, viral video without Teresa butting in.

Luis’ description didn’t resolve everything, but it did earn a round of applause from Joe Gorga.

On Part 3 of the Reunion special, Andy Cohen asked for clarification once the househusbands all joined them on the stage.

“When you were asked to explain the video, you claimed it was a breakup video,” the host said to Luis.

“But in the video you actually proposed,” Andy pointed out, asking: “So what was it?”

“I was in a relationship, it was toxic and my business partner was going to this retreat,” Luis began. “So I said, ‘Let’s go.'”

He clarified: “And we weren’t naked on the beach. We were in gym shorts, because they kept sending us in and out of the ocean.”

Luis went on: “Going in and out of the ocean, they made the guys set intentions for their wives.”

“I was a single guy, so I made this intention to this woman I was dating,” Luis explained.

“I was trying to break up, but I didn’t have the guts to do it,” he admitted.

“So when I went there,” Luis detailed, “they made me commit to her and basically said, ‘Stop making excuses,’ and I committed to her.”

Luis recalled returning home, at which point the woman “gave me a prenup, she asked for $1 million to get married.”

At that point, he and the ex in question broke up.

Joe Gorga and Margaret Josephs, having finally heard an explanation, offered their unironic applause.

“I was trying to help you flip public opinion because I didn’t want you to look bad,” Margaret claimed.

“This is a very clear explanation. Public opinion was not good,” she pointed out. “Unfortunately, it didn’t get flipped.”

Whether or not Margaret’s intentions were as helpful as she now claims, Teresa did not do any favors by guarding her “love bubble” in such a suspicious manner.

Luis explained that Teresa had not demanded his silence, but had advised him: “You don’t have to answer to anybody.”

He recalled: “I kept saying to her, ‘You have to let me speak.’ If I had a chance to speak, it would have been different.”

Sort of weird for him to throw Teresa under the bus there, whether or not she deserves it.

Andy then pointed out: “You seem to have a lot of women that you’ve dated who have unkind things to say about you.”

He listed: “There’s road rage incidents, you demand sex all the time, emotionally abusive, slashed a girlfriend’s tire, your family doesn’t like you, physical abuse in front of kids.”

Andy then asked an important but likely unhelpful question: “Is any of it true?”

“We were basically in toxic relationships,” Luis characterized.

“When you’re in toxic relationships, it felt emotionally abusive to me, but I’m not gonna label it that way,” he claimed.

As for the general accusations of demanding sex, Luis simply admitted: “I can’t have sex four times a day,” followed by Teresa joking: “I wish!”

Most serious of all are the domestic violence accusations, which Luis says were “arguments with my wife over my children when we were getting divorced.”

He commented: “If I’m the only guy in America that basically had arguments with his wife and she walks into the house and calls the police.”

“That’s the extent of it,” Luis insisted, denying that he ever hit said wife.

“Was I a perfect human being, absolutely not,” Luis confessed after denying physical abuse. However, he has suffered blowback from his rise to fame.

“Teresa didn’t want me to say this but they let me go from my company from all the negative stuff that came up in the press,” he shared, “because of all my exes out there.”

Luis detailed: “They called me up and said, ‘You have to step down,’ and that really sucked.”

Loren Brovarnik Explains Why She Got Pregnant with Baby #3 So Quickly

Timing is everything!

On Mother’s Day, Loren Brovarnik revealed that she is pregnant with Baby #3.

While people are happy for her and Alexei, some are taken aback that she is expecting another child already.

The announcement came less than nine months after Baby Asher’s birth. How did that happen?

Loren Brovarnik speaks IG Story (May 2022)

Shai is two years old. Asher is 8 months old.

Very soon, they will both be big brothers, as Loren is due as early as this autumn.

But considering that BabyB will be born just one year after Asher, and how soon after Shai the pair had Asher, fans have questions.

Obviously, most people are too polite to directly ask Loren why she keeps making Brovarniks.

But … obviously, some have asked her directly, including on social media Q&As.

This week, Loren took to her Instagram Stories to answer that invasive (but understandable) question.

So how, exactly, did Loren get pregnant with Baby #3 such a short time after welcoming baby Asher?

“When a man loves a woman, and a woman loves a man, and tequila is involved, things happen,” she replied.

She’s joking. Honestly, it’s pretty polite of her to have answered at all. It’s an impertinent question to ask directly.

While we kind of doubt that tequila played much of a role, what Loren means is that she and Alexei just happened to conceive.

This echoes her earliest statements about the pregnancy, made when she gave her announcement.

At the time, she told multiple outlets that it was “a surprise” that she was pregnant again already.

Loren’s goofy, patronizing answer basically just means that she and Alexei probably weren’t using contraception, but didn’t expect to conceive again so soon.

While the financial stability to do so is rare these days, some couples do just conceive whenever they happen to conceive until they have as many kids as they plan to have.

As for those plans, Loren has touched upon that topic in the past.

Alexei had apparently expressed a desire for “four” children.

Loren’s reply had been that only if their third pregnancy resulted in twins.

While they do not yet know the expected sex of their child (and are saving that knowledge for BabyB’s birth), presumably they are only expecting one baby at this time.

For some parents — many, in fact, the experience is simple.

Having two small kids is more than just twice the work of one child, as there are suddenly new concerns and problems and issues to handle.

Having three means even more — and also the reality of being “outnumbered” by their brood.

Some families do go on to have four children, or more.

While some parents joke that this is simply because “sleep deprivation” robbed them of their senses, it can also be intentional.

In some families, there is an ideology, like white supremacy or Christian Dominionism or, less directly, a disbelief in contraception, behind the drive to procreate.

Perhaps that (not the Christian Dominionism stuff, but more vague ideology stuff) is why people asked.

It’s also possible that some fans wondered if Loren and Alexei felt that they had a deadline.

Some families choose to have children sooner rather than later for specific goals, including to finish having kids so that one party can undergo a medically necessary surgery that will also render them infertile.

Loren and Alexei are making it clear that, frankly, it’s not that deep.

They boned, Loren got pregnant, and they’re welcoming Baby #3 this fall.

Sometimes, the simplest explanation is the right one.

Jeremy Vuolo Admits Jim Bob and Michelle Confronted Jinger Duggar Over "Immodesty"

Time after time, Jinger Duggar has defied Jim Bob and the cult’s twisted rules by wearing normal human clothing.

Technically, it’s permitted, in the sense that her “lord husband” Jeremy Vuolo gives her “permission” to participate in society in certain ways.

But fans and wary critics alike have long wondered if there’s any truth to the rumors that Jim Bob and Michelle take issue with Jinger’s attire.

The answer is yes. Jeremy testified to that effect in court, describing a confrontation between his in-laws and his wife.

Let’s first make it clear that we’re not talking about Jinger starting an OnlyFans, posting non-facial orifices on Twitter, or trying to #FreeTheNipple on Instagram.

Those are all perfectly fine things to do for anyone who wishes to.

But Jinger’s “violations” are a little harder to explain to those unfamiliar with the Duggar family’s twisted worldview.

Jinger wears pants, she has styled and dyed her hair, and she and her husband have even shared photos of themselves drinking moderately.

Only in the cultural extremes of a fundamentalist cult are these kinds of activities seen as scandalous.

But that is Jinger’s background. Time after time, things like baring her shoulders has taken longtime fans aback, purely because they know the sexist rules by which Jinger was raised.

As for the confrontation, The Sun got their hands on unsealed court documents from the now-dismissed case in Arkansas.

Jinger’s husband, Jeremy, offered a deposition during the case last year, and was asked about Jim Bob and Michelle.

When asked if his in-laws had expressed “opinions about any different convictions” that he and Jinger have, he answered “yes.”

Jeremy provided an example as part of his deposition: “They’ve spoken to us about – what was it – I guess modesty is one.”

He admitted: “We’ve had a couple of conversations.”

Jeremy then answered “yes” when the attorney asked about Jinger choosing to “wear pants on occasion.”

Jeremy confirmed what the entire world already knows — that Michelle does not wear pants.

“Is that the question of modesty that they talk to you about; pants versus skirts?” the attorney asked.

“In a way, yes. I mean, not that exact word,” Jeremy answered.

“They just shared their – their thoughts on women wearing dresses, I guess,” Jeremy summarized.

He cited: “I remember Mrs. Duggar just sharing her own personal journey of modesty.”

Jeremy then disagreed with the idea that Jinger in any way “dresses in an immodest way.”

Jeremy’s deposition also touched on other topics, and so did Jinger.

They acknowledged that they are not intent upon breeding enough children to populate a small nation in the way that Jim Bob and Michelle are.

He and Jinger are very conservative Christians by normal societal standards, but less extreme than the cult in which Jinger grew up.

Jeremy was also asked about emotional distance from his in-laws, particularly in light of the move to California.

“There – perhaps. I think, though, diagnosing that would be difficult,” he admitted.

““I think as you grow and have your own family, kids, and life,” Jeremy said. “You know, you go from, like, seeing everyone every day to talking to everyone every day to, you know.”

Nick Cannon Pledges to Undergo Vasectomy: I Don’t Need to Populate the Earth!

Late last year, Nick Cannon announced that he was going to spend some time celibate. No one disagreed with that decision.

Fast forward to early this year, and Nick revealed that he is expecting Baby #8.

As many people pointed out, celibacy is kind of an extreme solution when you’re just trying to stop ruining your baby mamas’ lives.

Nick is now promising to get a vasectomy before his progeny are numerous enough to populate a small country.

Nick Cannon spoke to E! News’ Daily Pop this week.

First, he assured the hosts and the world at large that his children give him a sense of “peace” and “purpose.”

Even so, Nick promises that he is not “out here looking” to expand his complicated family infinitely.

With five different women and seven (going on eight) kids, he has decided that enough is enough.

Nick revealed that he is planning to undergo a vasectomy.

The simple, usually reversible procedure, will sever his vas deferens that carry sperm from his testes to mix with the other fluids of his semen.

“I already went and got my vasectomy consultation,” Nick announced.

“I ain’t looking to populate the Earth completely,” he joked.

“But,” Nick affirmed, “I’m definitely looking forward to taking care and loving all the children that I currently have.”

The soon-to-be father of eight’s genitals are his own business, but the world at large is breathing a sigh of relief.

Nick had become a target of ridicule for his prolific sperm — or, rather, for how little self-control he is perceived to have employed over the years.

Many believe that Nick’s choices may be to the detriment of his existing children, given their numbers and how they are distributed among several households.

Vasectomies are generally very affordable procedures, particularly with insurance, and are widely considered to be safe, with short recovery times.

In contrast, similar surgeries to sever the fallopian tubes are intrusive and more difficult to reverse.

That said, some vasectomies end up being permanent, which is why those with the means to do so may want to consider having sperm preserved before undergoing the surgery.

Very few people are sex-shaming Nick, just questioning the responsibility of his choices when it comes to how they impact his children and partners.

Frankly, he is probably tired of being a meme, and may be sick of being idolized by toxic dudebros who think that virile sperm is a whole personality.

Plus, having a vasectomy instantly means that how he spends his free time is less likely to make headlines when he doesn’t want it to.

Speaking of headlines, Nick recently reunited with an ex, but it was all professional — however NSFW it may appear on this steamy album cover.

For half of a decade, Nick enjoyed an on-again, off-again romance with Jessica White, who have remained friends due to their “unconditional love” for each other.

The two are clearly not fully dressed and are in a very provocative pose. Sometimes, the album cover conveys more than any album rating possibly could.

Bilal Hazziez Tells Shaeeda Sween He’s Putting Her Out of His Car

From the start of this season of 90 Day Fiance, Bilal Hazziez has been putting up red flags in his treatment of Shaeeda Sween.

Playing weird mind games, testing her, criticizing her and keeping her on edge — these are manipulation tactics used by toxic partners.

In this sneak peek ahead of Sunday’s episode, Bilal tellls Shaeeda that he’s dropping her by the side of the highway.

The weirdest thing is that, in this instance, he might be in the right.

As this sneak peek ahead of Season 9, Episode 6 of 90 Day Fiance begins, Shaeeda and Bilal are in the car.

Shaeeda is deeply nervous about meeting Bilal’s ex-wife.

After the gauntlet of tests that he has already been putting her through, it’s no wonder that she’s on edge. It’s clearly intentional.

Instead of comforting Shaeeda, Bilal at first pretends to act like he doesn’t understand her anxiety.

Then, he decides to troll her in a truly tasteless, juvenile manner.

“You just might want to get that booger out of your nose,” Bilal claims to her, using a crude term for nasal mucus.

Shaeeda has clearly been put through of Bilal’s “pranks” to know when he’s lying, and denies it.

“Yes, you do,” he insists. “It’s green and brown-ish.”

Bilal even goes on to claim that there is a nose hair involved. Yuck.

“I’m getting sick and tired of you pranking me about this booger in my nose,” Shaeeda tells him.

“That’s an American thing. That is not a Trinidad thing,” she continues. “That is not my type of humor.”

For the record, it’s not an American thing either — not among adults with a sense of taste, anyway.

This is where things take a very different turn, however.

Shaeeda begins to retaliate by physically touching Bilal, who is driving.

“That’s disrespectful where I come from,” Bilal calmly tells her.

“So keep your hands to yourself and watch your tone,” Bilal demands.

(It’s unclear where the “tone” part of that came from, but the hands thing is extremely reasonable — don’t touch the driver, ever)

“Because I can literally pull over right now,” he warns her, “and you’ll be taking an Uber for the rest of the ride home.”

Shaeeda seems taken aback by Bilal’s objections, which … is odd.

First of all, even playfully, you don’t touch someone without their consent, especially if you’re swatting at them.

Secondly, and really more importantly in terms of personal safety, you absolutely do not touch the driver of a vehicle. That’s not cultural, it’s common sense.

After Shaeeda taps him on the back of the head in response to his objections, Bilal pulls over to the side of the road.

“You have to be a mad man to stop at the side of the road like this,” she declares.

Seemingly confused, Shaeeda asks: “Just because I gave you a little tap?”

The thing is that, up until this, Shaeeda was doing everything right — except that she hadn’t left Bilal yet.

Even in this sneak peek, she acknowledged that Bilal was very critical, even when she was in Trinidad, and had not let up now that she was here.

But this behavior was uncalled for, and it’s mystifying. She’s not the villain in the relationship, but in this moment, she’s the one acting up.

Kendall Jenner Blasts Scott Disick: Stop Villainizing Me! We’re Your Family!

While last week’s The Kardashians was largely about Kim Kardashian’s life after Kanye, it ended with a fight.

Scott Disick’s paranoia about being iced out of the family led to a fight with Kendall Jenner, who has been in his corner for a while.

On this week’s episode, we saw the aftermath of that.

Kourtney isn’t interested in discussing Scott and his big boy feelings, but as her sisters explain to her, this has to be resolved.

Scott Disick’s questioning if he would even be invited to Thanksgiving led to an inquisition about Kendall Jenner’s birthday celebration.

She didn’t have a big party — which is why he wasn’t invited. She has also been speaking up for him in family gatherings.

Despite that, he wouldn’t give her time to get a word in edgewise, and Kendall left the very non-productive conversation in a huff.

Kris Jenner was a witness to the entire dispute.

Scott angrily told her that if they all feel that he “shouldn’t be a part of this family anymore, I’d rather not be a part of it.”

Kris reminded him that’s not how literally anyone feels.

“Kendall’s stuck in the middle so that’s not fair to do to her, either,” Kris told Scott.

“She feels terrible … you can’t make somebody do or feel what you want them to do,” she reminded him.

Kris affirmed that “It’s only gonna get better and better,” though Scott argued that things could still get worse.

 Kris also spoke to the confessional camera about the entire exchange.

“I don’t like it when anybody’s arguing, especially my kids,” she noted.

“And,” Kris emphasized, “Scott really needs to get ahold of his emotions right now and not get so rattled.”

Kendall followed that dispute by driving over to Kourtney’s house, relating the conversation to Kourtney and to Khloe.

“Scott’s like, ‘What’s going on for Thanksgiving? Obviously, I’m not invited,’ and immediately it’s hostile,” she described.

Kendall lamented: “He’s talking through me the whole time, and I’m like, ‘I don’t do that.'”

“I’ve been in enough toxic relationships, I can’t stand it anymore. I shut off,” Kendall stressed.

“So I stand up and I’m like, ‘I’m out of here,'” she narrated.

Kendall continued: “At the end of the day, it’s really not my place, it’s about [those] two.”

“He was victimizing himself,” Kendall explained to the confessional camera.

“He was villainizing everybody else including me, which I have no ill intention towards him,” she pointed out.

“And I love him and would always want him around,” Kendall emphasized, “so it just caught me off guard.”

Kourtney did not seem very “present,” as people insufferably insist upon calling “paying attention,” for the conversation.

“I just don’t have the energy for this,” she admitted of the Scott drama after casually flipping through her phone.

“My head is on a different planet and I feel like I’m living a different life,” Kourtney explained. “I am unsubscribing from this drama.”

Khloe was not seeing eye to eye with her eldest sister, however.

“I told you this weeks ago! We think you need to talk to Scott and set some real boundaries because everyone else is in the middle,” she reminded her.

“I do think you should say, ‘Hey, moving forward, stop talking to my family about things,'” Khloe recommended.

Khloe advised Kourtney to tell Scott: “‘You ask me if I’m comfortable, stop putting everyone else in the middle.’ Done.”

She added: “You’re supposed to be the boss here.”

Khloe then acknowledged: “He’s not going to [Kourtney], cause he knows he cant get s–t out of her.”

“So he’s gonna go to [Kendall], the least combative,” Khloe explained.

“But that’s so f–ked up he’s gonna prey on you,” she warned.

Khloe expressed: “That’s actually really f–king rude.”

Michael Jessen and Juliana Custodio Finalize Divorce: We Can All Move On!

Earlier this year, 90 Day Fiance alums Juliana Custodio filed to divorce Michael Jessen.

The filing came as no surprise, as she was already living on another continent, had a new partner, and was already pregnant with her first child.

Now, Michael says that the divorce has been finalized.

He has other ongoing woes, but he says that Juliana “will be celebrating” this week.

On Wednesday, May 18, Michael Jessen posted to Facebook and then cross-posted to Instagram.

“Tomorrow,” he began, “two people will be celebrating that I am finally out of their life for good.”

Michael predicted: “And they will move on. … And so will I. …”

Michael Jessen divorce update 18 May 2022

“Myself,” Michael admitted, “I will not necessarily be ceelbrating.”

“But,” he said, “I will be continueto live life with many lew lessons learned and much more wisdom gained.”

Michael acknowledged: “Sometimes that is all we can expect from life.”

“Sincere best wishes,” Michael expressed, “and nothing but hopes of happiness for JC, BH, and their child to come.”

JC, of course, stands for Juliana Custodio. BH, of course, is Ben.

(As we have noted, he is known as Ben Obscura on social media, but that is because he is a photographer — obviously, it is not his real surname)

It looks like the 90 Day Fiance exes have both filed affidavits very recently.

With that out of the way, the marriage can be formally dissolved.

Given that Michael made the post on the 18, Thursday, May 19 sounds like the date of finalization. Congratulations to them both.

However, Juliana called out Michael after his post, speaking in Portuguese to express her displeasure with him having spoken publicly.

“What is the need to post for everyone to see?” she asked.

Juliana continued: “He loves to do the poor man’s line, people comment about it there, like this: Why expose this? Are you looking for attention? What’s the need to post this?”

Honestly, it’s not unusual for a reality star, even a former one, to give life updates, and Michael’s was fairly tasteful.

That said, given that Juliana has moved on in every conceivable way, it’s easy to understand her irritation, even if the rest of us don’t feel the same way.

Everyone has a right to share that they are getting a divorce, just as they have the right to share other milestones. That’s life.

Juliana Custodio, Michael Jessen, Sarah Naso on 90 Day Fiance Season 7

Unfortunately, Michael’s divorce being finalized does not mean that he can rest easy.

He has ongoing foreclosure proceedings related to his home, on which he reportedly stopped making payments as the pandemic hit.

(It’s good to remember that sometimes just as healthy people have been sickened, disabled, and killed by the virus itself, even affluent people were left financially devastated during the pandemic)

This case has been in mediation since last summer. Last month, Michael filed a motion to continue the mediation process.

The owner of his mortgage, however, has filed an objection.

One can only assume that the mortgage owner hopes to foreclose and sell the property, while Michael is clearly hoping for more time and a better outcome.

Michael Jessen and Juliana Custodio

Whatever we may think of Michael and Juliana’s story on the show — honestly, they were generally well-liked and many people were rooting for them — this is sad.

Yes, breakups happen, but we all wish that this had been more amicable.

And there’s nothing funny about a foreclosure. We wish Michael and Juliana well.

Speaking of Juliana, however, she has offered up an update on her glorious baby bump.

Her estimated due date is in July, and we are profoundly happy for her.

She looks gorgeous as always, and we wish her a healthy rest of her pregnancy and a safe delivery.

Christine Quinn: I’m Still on Selling Sunset! I Will ALWAYS Be on Television!

Just weeks ago, Christine Quinn announced that she’d left the Oppenheim Group and put Selling Sunset on blast.

It seemed like, despite her can’t-miss role on the Netflix reality series, she was parting ways with everything to go do crypto real estate stuff.

Not so fast, apparently.

Christine says that she is “absolutely” continuing on television in general, and will appear on Season 6 of Selling Sunset.

Christine Quinn spoke to Us Weekly, confirming: “I love the show.”

She emphasized: “The show is, like, my No. 1 [and] everyone knows that.” Do we?

“But we just have to get creative now,” Christine claimed, “because I don’t work for the Oppenheim Group.”

“Maybe it’s a battle of the brokerages,” Christine claimed of what is to come.

She dropped the hint that viewers might see “a really interesting dynamic” crop up between her and all of her erstwhile coworkers.

Christine asserted: “I’m not going anywhere.”

“Like, I’ll always be on television,” Christine vowed.

“I’m not going anywhere,” she reiterated. “It’s just, like, let’s have fun with this now.”

Christine insisted that there are no truly hard feelings between her and Jason Oppenheim.

During the Season 5 Reunion, Jason hinted that the realty company didn’t really have space for her anymore.

In contrast, Christine says that “We’re in a really good place” these days.

As for the claim that Christine tried to poach a client for $5,000, she still denies any wrongdoing whatsoever.

“Bless their hearts for trying,” Christine said dismissively. “But no, that absolutely did not happen.”

She recalled: “I watched the show and I was shocked. I was completely shocked.”

Even so, she says that she and Jason have smoothed things over.

“He just says, you know, ‘I was going off the information that I was given,’” Christine recalled.

“And I said, ‘Well, I wish you would have called me,” she said. “I wish you would’ve told me, you know, that you were doing this.”

Christine continued: “And I would’ve talked anything through with you and answered any questions for you.’”

Christine of course plugged her cryptocurrency real estate project that she’s doing with her husband.

That was already a sort of laughable project among those on the internet who consider cryptocurrency an environmentally destructive equivalent of lululemon.

But after the recent collapse of the NFT market (finally!) and the accompanying crypto crash … it’s almost surprising that she’s not trying to walk back that endeavor.

That said, if someone wants to sell their home in exchange for the 2022 equivalent of 1998 Beanie Babies, that’s arguably their business.

(Up to a point — the environmental devastation and the way that some people have been scammed into gambling their life savings is kind of everyone’s business)

Christine is apparently there to “help” with such transactions using her new business. But, as she says, she will remain on the show.

Christine’s not-quite-departure from the show was the talk of the town, so to speak, until Chrishell Stause shared her love story with G Flip.

The two have taken center stage, seeming to alternate standing in the Selling Sunset spotlight, for quite some time.

And with Christine remaining on the show, that’s likely to continue to be the case for the foreseeable future.

Derick Dillard and Jill Duggar Sell Home as Due Date Approaches

Earlier this year, Jill Duggar and Derick Dillard revealed that they are selling their home.

While they’re sorry to see the property go, they know that they need to uproot for Derick’s ne wjob.

Besides, their family is growing. Jill’s due date is only a couple of months away.

Now, the Dillards have successfully sold their home.

Derick and Jill purchased the four-bedroom, two-bathroom, 1,486 square foot house more than three years ago, in April of 2019.

The house in Lowell, Arkansas is on a sizable 8,276 square foot plot of land.

While the house is arguably large enough for the soon-to-be family of five, Derick’s new job required a move.

In Touch Weekly reports that the sale went through on May 12.

The closing price was officially listed at $305,000.

While today’s housing market has skyrocketing prices spurred on by corporations buying up neighborhoods, not all markets are the same.

The one-story brick home includes an open floor plan, an eat-in kitchen, and a covered rear-facing patio.

We have all seen the fenced backyard over the past few years — great for entertaining, privacy, or having pets or children.

The Dillards listed the specific plants in their backyard when advertising their home, indicating no plans to take these plants with them.

Israel David is 7 years old. Samuel is 3.

Soon, they will both have a baby brother.

A four-bedroom house is generally enough for a family that size (if you don’t need a guest room), but there’s a chance that the move could lead to an upgrade.

Jill and Derick will likely show off their new home in the not-so-distant future.

They likely had to weigh many different considerations before deciding where to live, including the size of their growing family.

Derick’s new job may have dictated where they move. Other factors, like finances, could determine other specifics.

Jill’s recent legal battle revealed that she makes only about $10k per year in sponsorships and endorsement deals.

That’s a nice and relatively easy bit of extra money to have lying around, but it’s not enough to qualify as a full-time job (or full-time influencer)

Right now, most families need to have both partners working. Depending upon Derick’s new salary, they might need to make difficult choices.

The truth is that Jill, who spent many years as a reality star before she and Derick left Counting On, should have more of a cushion than she probably does.

Even child reality stars (which, not to get on my soapbox, should not be a legal thing) usually benefit from their years of on-screen work.

The Gosselin sextuplets recently turned 18, attaining the first payout on their reality TV earnings. But that’s not how things work for the Duggars.

As Derick has long complained, Jim Bob pocketed the money from the reality series himself, selling the idea to his family as a form of religious “service.”

One can easily imagine how a manipulative patriarch could spin a reality career into a sort of “missionary” work to his cult-raised offspring.

While Jim Bob does give his adult children expensive gifts sometimes (in order to keep them under his control), the right thing to do would have just been paying everyone directly for their work.

Jill and Derick are doing okay, but it’s hard to think about any of this — home shopping, how much Jill makes through Instagram endorsements, etc — without remembering how she was robbed.

Worse still, of course, is that she was denied a real education or the chance to have normal life experiences during her cult upbringing.

Jill will never get another childhood, and can only play the hand that her toxic parents dealt her. It’s a shame.

Evelyn Cormier and David Vazquez Zermeno Finalize Divorce: Whew, It’s Over!

Late last year, 90 Day Fiance alum Evelyn Cormier filed to divorce David Vazquez Zermeno.

Evelyn was not exactly a fan-favorite on her season, but she still went on to make a splash on American Idol.

Her marriage, however, turned out to be more of a wash — accusing him of emotional abuse, narcissism, and failing to hold up his end of the deal in the bedroom.

Now, the two have finalized their divorce.

It took just five months after Evelyn’s November divorce filing for the divorce process to be completed.

In Touch Weekly reports that a judge signed off on the divorce on April 22.

Evelyn and David are currently living on opposite coasts of the United States, so they both participated in the divorce electronically.

Some fans of 90 Day Fiance have expressed fear that Evelyn might return for a stint on 90 Day: The Single Life.

Earlier this year, Evelyn addressed whether she plans to make a franchise comeback.

“I’ve had several people ask me if I plan to be on 90 Day: Single Life, and my simple answer is no,” Evelyn stated.

“At this point, I’m not thinking about my next relationship,” Evelyn shared in March.

“It’s so important to heal mentally and emotionally before jumping into anything new,” she affirmed.

“I want a healthy fresh start when I’m ready for it,” Evelyn added. “For now, I’m focusing on myself.”

Evelyn was only 18 years old when she appeared on 90 Day Fiance.

On a very recent episode of 90 Day Diaries, she confessed that she had realized her mistake in marrying so young.

“I knew immediately that I had made a really big mistake and I had to live with that,” she expressed to her family on camera.

“I married David when I was only 18,” Evelyn noted to producers.

“I think that I felt like, 18 is young but my parents did it. It worked out for them,” she added.

“I know that it’s okay to have issues in your relationship,” Evelyn shared, “but I was just blinded.”

One of the issues may have less to do with her youth and more to do with the age gap.

The difference in age between her and David, who is about 8 years her senior, might be insignificant now.

But when Evelyn was 18 years old, David was a grown man in his mid-twenties.

To make matters worse, there was how they met — on social media, chatting each other up on Instagram before meeting and, two weeks later, becoming engaged.

Many people meet on social media these days before becoming romantically entangled.

However, the timing of it all was not exactly how the two presented it on television.

90 Day Fiance Evelyn David First Interaction

As Evelyn and David’s storyline aired, cyber-sleuths dug up old, old interactions from Instagram.

They had begun “talking” in public comments when Evelyn was in her early teens — when David was already in his twenties.

That is not a meet cute. Depending upon what went on in their DMs, there could have been manipulation, inappropriate talk, and possibly (actual) grooming.

Some have joked (or not-quite-joked) that David lost interest in Evelyn because she became a grown woman in her twenties.

That might be unfair … or it might not … but people have a lot of questions about this creep.

Evelyn was the one who made a terrible on-screen impression, but ultimately David is the one who comes across as the true villain of their story.
