Congratulations are in order for the First Couple of home renovation as Fixer Upper stars Chip and Joanna Gaines have welcomed their fifth child!
Teen Mom: Young and Pregnant dad Bariki “Bar” Smith is currently struggling with the murder conviction of his older brother Troy Seales, as well as the ongoing appeals process, and last night he received more bad news as his foster sister was reportedly shot multiple times in East Oakland.
Earlier this year, prominent Atlanta attorney Tex McIver was found guilty of murdering his wife, Diane McIver, with a single gunshot from the backseat of the car in which the couple was riding on their way home one confusing September night. Despite the verdict, the trial that ended in a life sentence for the 75-year-old Tex ultimately raised more questions than it answered. So what happened to Diane McIver — a hugely successful and wealthy member of Atlanta’s business elite — and was her death really a murder?
MTV halted production on their reality series Catfish the TV Show last month after a former cast member accused show host Nev Schulman and a production assistant of sexual misconduct while shooting an episode in 2015, but they have officially begun filming again after a third party investigation determined that the allegations against Nev are “not credible and without merit.”
The Wedding of the 90 Day Fiancéntury is off! The stepdad of 90 Day Fiance: Happily Ever After star Nicole Nafziger has spilled the beans and revealed that she canceled her wedding plans with her Moroccan fiancé Azan Tefou!
We broke the story of K. Michelle’s switch from Love & Hip Hop Atlanta to Love & Hip Hop Hollywood months ago, when it looked like a fresh start was doing the longtime franchise star some good. A few months later, though, it seems like she might actually be done with the show — but did K. Michelle really quit Love & Hip Hop before her LHHH exploits even made it to the airwaves?
VOX – Yesterday, Melania Trump made a quick trip to the US-Mexico border to visit a detention center (and wish the families held there “Good luck”). And she wore a jacket emblazoned with the phrase “I really don’t care, do u?” do to it, which has sparked just the teensiest bit of backlash
THE BLAST – Roseanne is now officially coming back this fall via a Darlene-centered, Roseanne-free spinoff. We don’t yet know how much money ABC paid Roseanne to go away…but we do know that she allowed herself to be photographed giving a thumbs-up while out at dinner shortly after the network made the announcement
DLISTED – If you’re of the belief that 2018 could use a hearty dose of Daria Morgendorffer’s sardonic wit and apathetic shrugs, you’re in luck, because MTV is rebooting the show. (Though they’re calling it a “reinvention,” whatever that’s supposed to mean)
VERY SMART BROTHAS – If you haven’t yet read about Antwon Rose, the 17-year-old Pittsburgher who was shot and killed earlier this week while running, unarmed, from police, here’s everything you should know along with why you should know it
CELEBITCHY – It turns out the executive order Trump signed to reverse his administration’s policy of separating children from families trying to cross the US-Mexico border doesn’t actually end the policy and puts in place no guidelines for reuniting the children and families who’ve already been separated
THE BLEMISH – Trump advisor Stephen Miller, who came up with the family separation policy in the first place, had his phone number published by a muckraking outlet a couple of days ago. One unforeseen upside for Miller: He got all that human contact he’d been missing for who knows how long
LAINEY GOSSIP – In the aftermath of Solo‘s relatively disappointing box office take (it’s at just under $200 million after four weeks, which is a ton for a “normal” movie but sad for a Star Wars movie), Disney is actually “hitting pause” on all the Star Wars spinoff / expansion films. What’s more surprising than Disney managing to f*ck up the once-invulnerable Star Wars magic is the company actually admitting that they did, indeed, f*ck it all up
PAJIBA – If you’re one of the many viewers who tore through Queer Eye‘s entire second season last weekend and are starving for more, you’re in luck: There’s a new mini-episode set in the real town of (wait for it) Yass, Australia
REALITY TEA – A very tentative congratulations for Below Deck Mediterranean, which is “in the running” for an Emmy nomination. Of course, the members of the TV Academy have yet to actually determine who the nominees will be — but still, a long-list nod is a long-list nod
THE ASHLEY’S REALITY ROUNDUP – Jenna Morasca, best known for winning Survivor: The Amazon back in 2003, has returned to social media following her DUI and alleged overdose earlier this year. According to Jenna, she’s “back and better than ever”
JEZEBEL – Koko the gorilla, whose proficiency with sign language and painting helped inspire Michael Crichton’s novel Congo (and its hilariously campy movie adaptation), has died at the age of 46. Rest in peace, you beautiful creature
