Season 16 of The Biggest Loser will kick off in September – less one familiar face, Jillian Michaels, but plus two new faces, Jessie Pavelka and Jennifer Widerstrom.
Last week, NBC announced Jillian will not return to The Biggest Loser. "After helping hundreds of contestants transform their lives and inspiring millions of viewers at home, The Biggest Loser and Jillian Michaels have decided to part ways, and she will not be returning for Season 16 when it airs in the fall."
Well, I certainly didn't see this gossip coming! As always on Dancing with the Stars, the producers feel the need to incoporate a Bachelor franchise crossover to make Monday's viewing transition a little more seamless. Of course, this go-round, Sean Lowe is taking a break from planning his wedding to cha-cha for the mirror ball trophy. While the virginal good guy may have won over fans while looking for love, sources are saying he's not making any friends among the other DWTS contestants.
On the flip side, Disney Channel star Zendaya Coleman is proving to be a break-out star in the competition…and not just because of her killer dancing skills. People are falling in love with her bubbly personality. At sixteen, she's the youngest contestant in the show's history, but she's proving that she can dance with the best of them!
Are you ready for some MAJOR dirt from one of the former Bachelorettes? I promise her name doesn't sound like Hey Nerd! Ali Fedotowsky was the franchise's sweetheart, first leaving Jake Pavelkaduring his season and then finding romance (and then heartbreak) with Roberto Martinez. Of course, we already know those deets…we want to hear about what goes on behind the scenes. Ali reveals that she did the hippity dippity on just one of her overnight dates, but she admits it could have happened with more than one guy if one of her favorites hadn't headed back to his girlfriend before her season's end. She also shares that one former Bachelor (try to guess who before clicking below!) used to take girls into the bathroom on group dates to test the merchandise! I think you'll also be shocked to hear who she thinks was the victim of a very bad edit. This is juicy stuff, y'all!
Oh yeah, and then there's Sean Lowe. I jest…it's just that Ali's chat has some great little nuggets! ABC has announced a new twist in the realm of Bachelor specials. Also, Sean dishes why he is choosing abstinence until marriage. I guess that's a little dirt from Sean.
There is a lot going on in the world of the Bachelor today…past and present. First up, everyone's favorite pilot turned famewhore Jake Pavelka is discussing his love, the talented Kristin Chenoweth. I will never, ever understand that situation as long as I live. She's just so cute, I want to put her in my pocket, but I am certainly questioning her romantic choices of late.
You know who else is questioning his romantic choices (and rightfully so)? Why, it's current Bachelor Sean Lowe! Everyone can breathe a sigh of relief, because it appears that even though he keeps picking the atrocious Tierra LiCausa, Sean now recognizes he was clearly hoodwinked…what a cute expression. Golly, Sean. And speaking of Tierra, she has to command that attention, right? Just wait until you see her recent Instagram picture!
Sometimes my reality gets skewed. It's been skewed as of late. I'm bewildered. The light of musicals, Southern belle charm, and quick wit wrapped in a tiny little package has disappointed me. Yet, I still can't blame her. I feel as if she's been brainwashed. I can't think of another logical explanation.
I'll just come right out and say it. I've heard the rumors, and I've read the gossip, but I so didn't want to believe it was true. But we now have confirmation. Sigh. It seems that everyone's favorite multi-talented spitfire little cupcake Kristin Chenoweth is, in fact, dating former Bachelor alum and d-bag pilot Jake Pavelka. When did the world go so awry? I'd hoped that she was his beard, but it doesn't seem like that is the case. I don't know what to believe anymore. Gracious.
Everyone’s favorite Bachelor Pad villainess Vienna Girardi is speaking out about her relationship with ex-boyfriend and Bachelor Pad pad partner, Kasey Kahl! And Vienna is now accusing the Kasey “Guard And Protect Your Heart” Kahl of abuse!
Speaking to Reality Weekly, Vienna describes the fear she felt in her past relationship, which she describes as “hell” and explains why she had to leave Kasey! “I went through hell with him, with his drinking and his anger,” she reveals. “I had enough, I couldn’t take it anymore.”
Vienna’s fear was so acute it led her to break up with Kasey in November, move out of their Beverly Hills apartment, and literally flee to Florida. “I had to get away from it,” she explains.
Vienna’s first experience with Made-For-TV love was scarcely better. After winning The Bachelorand becoming engaged to Jake Pavelka, Vienna had a similar experience; claiming Jake’s temper and his controlling behavior forced her to end the engagement and move out.
While dating Kasey, Vienna says she was subjected to constant emotional abuse and although he never hit her with closed fists, he got physical in other ways. “He kicked me off the couch one night with his foot,” she recalls. “I have voice recordings of Kasey when he has called me drunk and mad, yelling he is going to f–k a girl – while we were dating,” Vienna insists.
Vienna claims Kasey often promised to change; to stop drinking, but he never did. “He got drunk every day,” she alleges. “Kasey claims to never remember anything he does when he’s drunk. And that is a big problem because he never thinks he has done anything wrong.”
Kasey was recently arrested in his hometown of Fresno, CA after getting into a bar brawl. He allegedly punched a woman in the face, giving her a bloody nose. Kasey was arrested with several friends; no charges were filed and the police let him go. Vienna alleges the woman Kasey supposedly hit is suing him because of the assault.
The couple attempted to work through their issues on the new Vh1 show, Relationship Rehab, where Kasey admitted he had a problem with drinking – but nothing got resolved. Vienna remained afraid of his temper: “I was so scared,” she admits and the couple broke up.
Vienna describes their break up as difficult and said Kasey took it hard. “Kasey wasn’t ready to break up,” Vienna explains, adding that she wanted to go in a different direction in her life, which further angered him. “I wanted to buy a house, move to Florida, and open a clothing store. Kasey got really mad about that.”
Ultimately, Vienna decided she had to leave, but remained silent until now, because she was afraid to tell anyone. And it has nothing at all to do with promoting her newest reality show?
“I was so afraid to tell people about how he treated me because I was scared no one would ever believe me after what happened with Jake,” Vienna admits. “So I just picked up and left LA. I came home to Florida and started my life again.”
Vienna is hopeful that Kasey will realize the error of his ways and stop drinking once and for all. “Maybe he will learn,” Vienna says. “Sadly, he is a good guy when he’s not drinking.” Kasey has yet to comment on these allegations, but I’m sure he will in the next day or two!
Just a side note – I sincerely hope claiming domestic abuse is not going to be the new way wannabe celebrities seek attention from the media. Why don’t they stick to making sex tapes like the good old days. Domestic violence is an incredibly serious issue and should not be taken lightly. I hope all these women speaking out about alleged abuse are being truthful AND attempting to use their platform to help victims with fewer resources.
