Great news, my fellow Big Brother fans. CBS has renewed the summer hit for two more seasons. BB17 will air summer 2015 and BB18 will air summer 2016. As long as she doesn’t suffer any programming malfunctions between now and then, Julie Chenbot will continue her duties as host.
This marks the first time ever in Big Brother‘s sixteen season run that CBS has ordered two seasons in one shot. This, thanks to Big Brother 16‘s increase in viewers – averaging 7.56 million in the key demo – and increase in ratings over the summer-long nightmare that was Big Brother 15.
On last night‘s show, James and David brought a client to Josh Altman‘s open house. Josh went out of his way to take little digs at his co-stars, and David did not hesitate to return the favor. Later, Josh pulled James aside and warned him, “You are the likable one. I think that guy’s [David] holding you down. You’d probably be better off by yourself.”
Kimye stepped out tonight in Paris in these getups. Our writer Melissa noted, “I see Kanye finally got a collar on his pet dinosaur!”
I’m apparently not evolved enough to understand the deep fashion statement they’re making. So I leave it to you guys. Give us your best interpretations of what profound messageKanye is trying to convey here.

In another massively long-winded missive, Amber lambasts Dina Manzo for being a ish-stirrer and blaming her for the Victoria Gotti rumor. After all, Teresa Giudice shares 50% of the blame. Silly Amber – doesn’t she know Teresa is never, ever, like ever responsible for anything bad?!
First of all, Amber calls Dina out on being faux-happy that Amber and Jim were meeting the group in Florida. “Did anyone catch Dina’s reaction to my call. She did not exactly seem pleased we were coming down or excited that I was in good health. I get the rumor was on her mind, but that was not exactly fair to me.”
Anyway, Gretchen has been trying to have Slade Smiley‘s babies for a while now and unfortunately things just aren’t working out naturally so the couple is turning to fertility treatments. Sharing that the decision to consider fertility was a painful one, Gretchen admits that she had “mourn the loss of making a baby the natural way” before she accepted the situation.
Question: Didn’t El Slave-o have a vasectomy a while back?
On last night’s episode of Million Dollar Listing Los Angeles, viewers had the pleasure of hearing James Harris try to ‘rap’ not once, but twice! The man has serious street cred. Not really. But what he does have is an amazing property above the Sunset Strip in Hollywood that he and his partner, David Parnes, are hoping will appeal to young entertainers in the industry. So the boys grab their iPad and run over to a recording studio where they are introduced to none other than the ‘Rack City’ rapper, Tyga. He lives an hour outside of L.A. and needs a crib closer to the studio where he can crash and party. The Brits show Tyga photos of the house and schedule a showing for the next day.
Josh Flagg is off to meet with his client, Jas, an architect/developer, who he met through his grandmother, Edith. Jas had done business with him via her building. He has a 1929 Spanish style home in the City of Beverly Hills that he wants to unload. It is in the lower priced area of Beverly Hills, which is perfect for someone who wants to buy into the lifestyle. But there is a catch. It is a tear-down that cannot be torn down due to the city’s preservation ordinance, meant for architectural treasures. Although this 2426 sq. ft. home has a few interesting details, this home is nowhere near such a treasure and is worth less than land. The interior can be gutted, but the existing exterior must remain intact. The frustration in that must have gotten to Jas the architect. He will no longer be renovating and moving in with his family. Josh advises him to list the property for $2m. A fair asking price.
Never one to shy away from the truth, Bethenny opened up about her new book, the possibility of a return to the show that made her famous, Scary Island, fake housewives and her surprising connection to Aviva Drescher.
