Katie Thurston is having quite the season on The Bachelorette. None of the men really seem to be there for the right reasons and producers have forced the cast to basically go to therapy on TV. Some people, like Katie, are mature enough to parse through their past experiences, no matter how uncomfortable.
Katie even decided to open up about her experience with sexual assault. This shows that Katie is no stranger to being vulnerable and tough. She’s using those strengths now to discuss a health scare that happened more recently than people think.
The Hills: New Beginnings is the perfect nostalgia for millennials who grew up watching Lauren Conrad and Kristin Cavallari take turns dating Brody Jenner. Kardashian who? Brody was famous from The Hills long before Kylie Jenner became a self-made billionaire. It’s been fun watching Brody, Audrina Patridge, Heidi Pratt, Spencer Pratt, and Jason Wahler play act some scripted reality this season.
Brody’s current story on The Hills revolves around the disintegration of his marriage to Kaitlynn Carter. They married in 2018 and enjoyed having three-ways until, well, Kaitlynn didn’t anymore. They divorced in 2019. Kaitlynn was spotted making out with Miley Cyrus a week later. Both parties have since moved on. Brody is pursuing Audrina like a middle-schooler and Kaitlynn is dating Kristopher Brock. She’s also very pregnant, which Brody has thoughts about.
Real Housewives of Orange County is currently filming its 16thseason. Sixteen years! Wow, who would have thought? RHOC has been through some major changes over the last few years, but it seems like it’s getting a major shake-up this season.
So far, producers are making the right calls for season 16. They’ve sent Kelly Dodd, Braunwyn Windham-Burke, and Elizabeth Lyn Vargas off in a family van and they’re bringing back fancy pants Heather Dubrow. I believe Heather will bring true opulence back to show. But, let’s not get too ahead of things here. The premise of Housewives may revolve around women of means, but it’s littered with women bordering on financial ruin. Take for instance, Noella Bergener, a former friend of Braunwyn and reported season 16 cast member. She’s apparently comin’ in hot with major debt.
It’s all happening for Scheana Shay. The Vanderpump Rules star has been through a lot in her time on the show. We watched her marry Mike Shay in a half top that Stassi Schroeder was totally jealous of, then a few seasons later, we watched Scheana and Mike divorce because he couldn’t keep his lies straight. Scheana has always been open about her life on Pump Rules. So, when she started dating again she showed us every difficult moment. Unfortunately for Scheana, she picked some serious losers to go out with – none of whom should ever be named again.
Then, Scheana found Brock Davies, a personal trainer from Australia. The man looks like he should be on the cover of a romance novel. The couple also recently had their first child together, a daughter, Summer Moon Honey Davies. It’s safe to say everyone is incredibly happy for Scheana, especially since she suffered a miscarriage the year before. Now, Scheana’s life appears to be good as gold.
Lala Kent knows how to ruffle some feathers. But maybe it’s not all her fault since she wasn’t exactly welcomed with open arms to Vanderpump Rules. The Witches of WeHo gang hated her instantly and Lala didn’t do herself any favors when she decided to go topless in Hawaii. How would she know Katie Maloney-Schwartz would blame Tom Schwartz’s wandering eye on her alone?
From that point on, it seems like Lala put up a shield, and anyone who attempts to penetrate that shield is met with total vitriol. That’s not say Lala isn’t entertaining. We have her to thank for James Kennedy’s famous “not about the pasta” freak out and for the phrase “bambi-eyed bitch.” For anyone wondering if motherhood has given Lala any pause in calling people out – it hasn’t!
It feels like forever since we’ve heard any news about Love is Blind. A year ago, we were told that the Netflix series was renewed for two more seasons. But so far, we’ve got nothing and I’m itching for a new season because this show was insane. To refresh, contestants spent time in different pods talking to potential partners about seriously personal things. Some even formed deep connections, but the only way couples could meet each other face to face was if they got engaged. And you know, quick engagements – to people you’ve never seen – are bound to last!
Obviously, the show helped create some unhealthy relationships and hot mess individuals. Who could forget Mark Cuevas and Jessica Batten? Mark may or may not have had a girlfriend while filming, and Jessica, well she loved wine. And so did her dog. Then there were Giannina Gibelli and Damian Powers – who almost made it down the aisle. It doesn’t seem like either regret not taking the plunge. Two couples however got married during the first season: Amber Pike and Matt Barnett, and Cameron Hamilton and Lauren Speed. Wonder what they’re up to?
We’ve definitely seen more of THE HUSBAND on Real Housewives of Beverly Hills this season. Of course, “the husband” is Harry Hamlin, Italian chef extraordinaire. It seems Lisa Rinna is strategically bringing him around so we don’t have to really talk about him. While we’ve seen Harry, we really haven’t seen much of Amelia Hamlin and Delilah Hamlin.
We have however heard a lot about Amelia, 20, and boyfriend – forever man-child, Scott Disick, 38. Rinna is pretending to be put off but inside she must be cackling about how much attention this pairing brings her family. In fact, attention and Rinna go hand in hand. This woman has no qualms about shilling for diapers – a check is a check is a check to this hustler. Bottom line, Rinna must have some good advice for being in the public eye.
There aren’t enough crystals in the world to calm Spencer Pratt’s ego. The Pratt Daddy Crystal maven has to be one of the most ridiculous reality TV villains of all time, (that’s a sincere compliment). Spencer knew from day one of his time on The Hills how to push people’s buttons – just ask Lauren Conrad who literally ran from the hills to get away from him.
Now, on The Hills: New Beginnings, Audrina Patridge, Brody Jenner, Justin Bobby Brescia, Jason Wahler, and Brandon Lee are all thinking they need to do the same thing. Spencer and wife, Heidi Pratt, have made everyone mad because they doubted Jason’s sobriety. Sure, it’s a horrible thing to do, but, if it wasn’t for this one remark about Jason’s sobriety, the show would have zero drama. Now, Spencer’s letting his co-stars know who’s bringing it and who isn’t.
