In very sad news, Nico Scholly’s younger brother, Tristen, passed away. The Below Deck star shared the tragic news last night on social media.
“My younger brother of 21 is now an angle [sic]. So please pray for my family #chicago#belowdeck#familycomesfirst,” shared Nico at 11:01 last night. Nico, who was in Florida prior to Tristen’s death, hails from Chicago.
Oh boy. Get ready for an epic smackdown! Taking no prisoners in his blog, Captain Lee berates the entire crew of Below Deck for their frat party behavior on this week’s episode. If he would have seen their antics real-time, Lee assures viewers they would have all (well, almost all) been fired! Alas, he has only Bravo footage to rely upon now. But that’s enough to make his blood boil, apparently.
Lee begins, “Well if you thought I was pissed last week, then you have seen nothing yet…honestly I am seething. As you know, I don’t get to see all of the crew shenanigans until the episode airs, unless I happen to come upon them misbehaving unexpectedly. That was not the case here.”
With The Real Housewives Of Orange County reunion coming up, the OC ladies are scrambling to clean up their individual messes. They also seem to be taking one last virtual shot at their enemies before that reunion couch footage airs. Shannon Beador is no exception, writing in her blog this week about all of the “rumors” she could have spread about Kelly Dodd (but didn’t). Which means she’s not a bully, at least in her own judgy eyes!
Shannon begins with whining about production having to inviteVicki Gunvalson and Kelly to Tamra Judge’s party. Shannon claims that she and hubby David Beador “didn’t have a choice because we didn’t create the guest list. Vicki and Kelly are responsible for putting a horrible and false allegation out there about my husband. I don’t want to see or talk to either of them… understandably so.”
Captain Lee Rosbach is not one to mince words, and in this week’s blog, he serves it up straight, with a twist of snark!
Essentially, Lee‘s disappointed with his Below Deck crew, and specifically, with Ben Robinson’s utter lack of professionalism. Lee claims that if he would have actually borne witness to Ben’s petty treatment of one guest – a psychic who told Ben news he didn’t want to hear – Ben would have immediately received “a plane ticket home.” End of story. Ouch!
Given the contentious nature of this season, it’s only natural that the ladies react just as contentiously in their blogs. Heather Dubrow calls out Meghan Edmonds, Kelly Dodd, and Vicki Gunvalson in her blog this week as the ultimate sh*t-stirrers / backstabbers, and she’s not holding back! Citing Meghan as two-faced, Kelly as a troublemaker, and Vicki as the revenge-seeking “puppet master,” Heather claims that the reunion to come “will not disappoint.”
Last night was the 4th annual Reality TV Awards ceremony and several familiar faces turned out for the event. We have the red carpet photos and the full winner’s list!
Vicki Gunvalson, who won “Reality Queen,” was in attendance with her beau Steve. Abby Lee Miller took home the prize for Favorite Reality TV Villain while Real Housewives of Orange Countywon for Favorite Recurring Cast. Dance Moms star JoJo Siwa won for Heartfelt Moment. Reality Tea was nominated for Favorite Reality TV Website, but we lost out to TMZ. Not bad company to be in for that category, though, right? Oh well, there’s always next year. We were just thrilled to be in the running with some pretty amazing sites. 😉
