Teen Mom OG dad Gary Shirley is officially a father of two. Gary and his girl friend, Kristina Anderson, welcomed a baby girl over the weekend. Emilee Grace was born late Saturday night and weighed in at 7 pounds, 11.4 ounces.
“Spending time with my lovely family and the newest of them all,” gushed Gary. “I love my beautiful daughter Emilee Grace Shirley. She is so perfect in every way. I love the wonderful woman who gave her to me and put her body through many changes including an emergency c-section.”
Gary continued, “Kristina you are more beautiful to me now than ever! God has a path for us all and I’m so glad he put you in my life! Leah and I are better to have you! You truly are my Mrs. Wonderful. I know you tell me all the time how blessed you are to have me, but it truly is backwards. I’m blessed to have you.”
Kym Johnson’s chemistry with Dancing With the Stars partner, Shark Tank star Robert Herjavec, can’t be denied – especially after that (spontaneous?) smooch on this week’s show! For now, though, Kym is avoiding that topic, instead focusing on her recent stint (with Carson Kressley, also a DWTS alumn) on RuPaul’s Drag Race as a dance coach. “It was definitely not your typical dance, it’s sort of a twist on your normal partner dance,” Johnson tells PEOPLE about the routines she helped customize for an unusual dance competition among the “half-man/half-woman” costumed queens.
Admitting to the newness (and awkwardness!) of the situation, Kym says, “I’m usually teaching a celebrity, and I’m the pro, so that, when you’re out on the dance floor, you know that at least one member of the partnership can sort of pull the other one through if they get lost,” adding, “but when you have two people in the same situation, that makes it really nerve-racking because either one of them could mess up, and it’s hard to get it back.” Kym admits she was nervous for the drag queens to pull off their final performance: “I was watching, holding my breath, thinking, ‘Please, keep it together!’ But the ones that struggled a little bit more in rehearsals ended up, I think, pulling it off the best in the actual performance,” she says.
Dang, Whitney! It’s like that, bruh? On last night’s Southern Charm, Craig Conover took his “good friends” Shepard “Shep” Rose and Whitney Benedict Arnold Sudler-Smith to visit his parents’ home in Delaware. After berating Craig in front of his parents as a lazy, drunken, debauched man-boy in need of immediate intervention (which, okay, Craig is…but still! In front of the ‘rents, Whitney!?), Craig understandably got pissed. Although they worked it out on the golf course – for now – Craig reflects in his Bravo blog just how betrayed he felt when it all went down.
When he originally conceived of the idea to take his friends home to DE, Craig says he thought, “‘Why the heck not?’ I knew they would have a good time and be surprised to compare where I actually grew up to whatever they imagined in their heads.” He adds that he wanted the guys to see where he’d come from (and his 2.1 billion trophies of bygone days), so they’d get a better understanding of who he is now. And who he can be? “I knew they would have a great time, my parents would enjoy it, and that it would give them a deeper insight into who I really was as a person and where my roots really come from. Maybe seeing how successful I’ve been throughout my life would help them understand that I’m just going through a rough patch/low point in life and everything would be OK,” Craig explains. As for Craig NOT wanting to tell his parents about losing his job, he explains, “I didn’t want them to worry. I knew there was no way of telling them over the phone that I got fired and them not inherently thinking something was seriously wrong. Of course I was embarrassed, but my intentions weren’t from a selfish place.” He adds that “there was a lot of shame–they gave me the perfect childhood and have since provided me with everything I needed to become a very successful young adult. I didn’t think it was fair to them for me to be acting the way I was and losing my job after all of their hard work.”
This week, MJ planned Reza‘s party and Asa planned Adam‘s party. Reza is all about the raunch. “When you’re planning a bachelor party for your gay best friend, who is a whore and wants to sow his wild oats, it’s important to say, ‘Yes. Yes. Yes.'” said MJ. “The sky’s the limit; lots of gold, lots of dollars, lots of toys.”
Adam and Asa, on the other hand, threw around ideas like a beautiful picnic, a petting zoo (no puns included), and a scavenger hunt. MJ refused to invite Asa to Reza‘s bachelor party, so Reza agreed to keep it a secret from both Asa and Adam. Asa and Reza took to their blogs to share their thoughts on the bachelor party drama on Shahs of Sunset this week.
If you don’t owe child support on this season’s episode of Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta, chances are, you’re toying with the idea of opening a boutique. I’m really going to need these folks to step up their game! On last night’s episode, Erica Dixon is at her wit’s end with Lil’ Scrappy continuing to ignore his child support obligations. She estimates he’s behind close to $50,000, so she’s meeting with her attorney to see what her options are to get him to pay. Her lawyer advises her to petition the court to have him held in contempt. While she’s the last person who wants to see her former love behind bars–yet again–she’s doesn’t feel like she has any other options.
Thankfully, Yung Joc fancies himself a great father…and he’s not too bad at keeping his several baby mamas happy as well. Sina stops by the studio with some pound cake in hopes of wooing him back from the woman who he cheated on her with when she was pregnant with his twins…but don’t confuse his current girlfriend Khadiyah with the other woman also pregnant with another set of his twins when Sina was expecting. Khadiyah hasn’t added any baby’s to Joc’s growing football team yet, but she does like to pay for his studio time. She also pops in to see if he’s using her money wisely. Khadiyah isn’t used to taking the high road with Sina, but she’s trying, saying she has respect for his children’s mother(s). Sina wonders if Joc has shared with Khadiyah that they are still smashing (smashing, smashing…I love that Joc thought the word echoed throughout the studio!). Surprisingly, Khadiyah stays scarily calm, and Sina looses her cool to the point that Joc has to physically remove her from the building.
Yolanda‘s been sharing selfies and inspirational quotes on Instagram, as per usual, during her time in Germany. To the photo above, she added, “No matter how much it hurts, you have to keep going. #NoteToSelf #WeMustFindACure #ChronicNeuroLymeDisease #TwoYearNineMonthNighmare #GermanyDay7″ I don’t begrudge Yolanda her right to share sick bed selfies, but I would be lying if I said I didn’t find it odd. See more pictures from Germany below.
Tonight’s the night! The MET gala is taking NYC by storm and Kim Kardashian’s MET gala gown didn’t disappoint! I must say that this might be my favorite Met gala dress of Mrs. West’s thus far. Our previous two choices were this and this.
