The countdown is on, my fellow Big Brother fans! Big Brother 17‘s two-night premiere airs Wednesday, June 24 and Thursday, June 25. CBS has released the names, photos, and bios of the Houseguests and announced the twist that will, no doubt, annoy my face off sooner rather than later. HAHA. I have such a love/hate relationship with Big Brother.
The twist, BB Takeover, will feature a surprise guest each week who will appear on the show to announce a new twist. Yes, a new twist every single week, which is expected to “shake up life inside the house on a weekly basis.”
“This is going to be the biggest Big Brother ever!” promised EP Rich Meehan. “Surprise guests, twists every week all summer long and, of course, Zingbot! But the houseguests better keep their focus, because Big Brother is all about relationships. Trust me, with all the twists and turns, those bonds will be more important than ever, because at the end of the week, it’s your housemates that send you packing on eviction night.” Meet the houseguests below.
It’s almost Big Brother time! CBS has released pictures of the Big Brother 17 house. Obviously, so we can see what it looks like before the new houseguests (stay tuned for that gallery) trash it and the ants move in.
The theme of the Big Brother 17 house this summer is “steel wave, a modern take on the summer beach house.” Big Brother‘s production designer Scott Storey told ETOnline, “I wanted it to be a house of steel and glass. It plays well with Big Brother and the ‘no place to hide’ concept.” New additions to the house for Season 17 include a second story metal platform, which has a clear floor, called The Bridge, an indoor hammock in the hangout room, and more cameras and microphones than ever before. See the house below.
“What a crazy week on Married to Medicine, starting with the craziest of them all, Ms Drama Queen, villainess of Married to Medicine,” she blogged. “Quad is married to a psychiatrist! What would his diagnosis be for her?” Lisa said she would diagnose Quad as “delusional with some grandiose ideology and a touch of selective amnesia.”
Our favorite reality TV stars, like Kyle Richards, Chelsea Houska, and Kim Zolciak, love to show off their adorable kids/family photos on social media. It’s tough to narrow down, but here’s our pick for the sweetest photos from the past few weeks.

This week on Married to Medicine, Quad Webb-Lunceford decided to give Lisa Nicole Cloud a taste of her own medicine, ordering a background check on her. Quad went the “extra” route and requested a check on Lisa‘s husband and Lisa’s mother’s elbows too. You name it, Quad ordered it.
Quad took to her blog to explain her decision, “It really pains me that I have to conduct a background investigation on someone that I once considered a friend. My intentions were not to hurt or harm ‘She Who Shall Not Be Named’ or her family; however, I did want to set an example as to how NOT to treat a friend. Her behavior and actions were highly disappointing, inappropriate, and unjustifiable. Again, ‘She Who Not Be Named’ and I have never discussed doing business together. I don’t work for her, she doesn’t work for me. She’s not an investor, a stockholder, or a business partner in Picture Perfect Pup – and she never will be.”
Last night, the Shahs of Sunset reunion ended without Jessica Parido sitting in the hot seat, with Mike Shouhed agreeing to go out for post reunion drinks with the ‘friends’ who just trashed him for hours, and with some “to be continued … next season” nonsense.
Asa Soltan Rahmati and Reza Farahan shared their thoughts on Mike’s place in the group and the reunion as a whole with Bravo. When asked if Mike can “make things right” again, Asa said, “Mike can absolutely make things right with the group if he cares enough. We go way back. Our friendships are sacred.” If “if he cares enough” is code for “if he begs master Reza enough” and “sacred” is code for “dysfunctional,” then I totally agree.
A lot of time was spent on Vicki and Tamra, and the poll was, Vicki and Tamra: forever friends or never again?
When asked if she was bothered when Tamra said Jeana Keough was a good friend to her this year, Vicki said, “It didn’t bother me. Jeana’s definitely always in people’s business, so it was a normal thing for her to be in her business.” Andy called attention to the shade. “It is what it is,” she added. “Jeana was very helpful to Tamra and I was not.”
