Here we go, day one of the Celebrity Big Brother antics and the teasers are showing Speidi (Heidi and Spencer Pratt) up to their normal camera-stealing, attention-loving, drama-craving tricks. Oh, wait… Am I meant to be neutral and unbiased? Oops.
So we left yesterday with beige tracksuit-wearing Stacy Francis being sent to the garden, whilst the All-Stars returned to the house to meet up with the remainder of the Newbies. The house is abuzz with the news that Ray J and Stacy have a history (although unknown as yet what that is), and if she doesn’t have enough reasons to justify her tears and bird-giving, Spencer and Heidi enter the garden to tell Stacy to sit on the specific ‘edited out’ chair and other ‘comforting’ pearls of wisdom (must be neutral…must be neutral…think happy thoughts…).
So Christmas is over, New Year’s resolutions are still in those baby stages of not being broken, and it is that time of year where you guys send over your finest (?!) celebrities to put in the CelebrityBig Brother mixing pot for thirty days to simmer, annoy, and show us Brits how to do Reality TV.
I have had the pleasure of watching Big Brother for many years (although I’ve still not forgiven you for the offense-to-the-ears intrusion that was Perez Hilton), and we seem to have more and more input from our friends on your side of the ocean, so I thought it only fair I keep you updated on the activities on our side.
Above: Real Housewives of Atlanta star Kandi Burruss shows us why she’s worthy of the “So Sexy” invite. Is it just me, or has Kandi never looked better?! And I don’t mean just her figure, she’s positively glowing these days. Seriously, I will have what she is having. Um, err, except for the crazy mother and the infant that doesn’t sleep through the night. 😉
Can’t say we didn’t see this one coming a mile away, now can we? After all, Courtney Stodden just can’t seem to stay away from the spotlight. After appearing on both Big Brother and Couples Therapy with her husband Doug Hutchinson, the busty blonde has found yet another way to try and remain relevant. How? By planning to renew her vows with Doug, of course.
The controversial couple made headlines back in 2011, when the then 16-year-old Stodden and 50-year-old Hutchinson tied the knot. After a 9 month separation back in 2014, the couple got back together and want to renew their vows. Why? Well, because Stodden wants her chance at being “Cinderella” for the day – and we’re sure she hoping to cash in, as well.

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.
Ariana Madix is not resting on her Vanderpump Rules laurels! The actress just landed a role in a short thriller called “Immurement,” in which she stars with actor-turned-producer (and former Big Brother villain) James Rhine.
The super-eerie movie is described in the press release as a “psychological thriller in the vein of ‘The Twilight Zone’ and ‘Tales From the Crypt.’”
“A woman wakes up in a bricked chamber. No windows. No doors. She has no idea how she got there, who put her there and for that matter, who she even is,” scriptwriter and independent filmmaker Colin Costello explained.
Reality stars – past and present – turned out for OK! magazine’s pre grammy party last night at Lure nightclub in L.A. Everyone from Joanna Krupa (who chopped off her long hair) to Lisa Vanderpump and a few SUR employees and many more showed up for the night out.
