Big Brother 21 Week 2 Recap: What’s Really Going Down In The Big Brother House?

We all know that Big Brother is a Reality TV show, with the “Reality” part being a bit of a stretch. It’s been around for so long now that it has a built-in fan-base who all know what to expect (you know, the “unexpected”) and most of whom know that they are tuning-in in order to mentally tune-out…this is not really a show that is going to test your intellect, but is instead a fun, cheesy Summer-time diversion.

We all accept, for example, the different costumes the houseguests are forced to wear, and there is great anticipation for our annual visit from both Zing-bot and OTEV, among the other red meat that the producers throw their fans each season.  But we also know in our hearts that much of what we see on TV is a fabrication, a “version” of what is really going on, and that the confessionals are mostly lines being fed to the players (I hope this isn’t ruining the facade for those that somehow were unaware of the manipulative narrative that exists across not just this one, but of many Reality Shows across the TV landscape).

So what am I getting at, and why now? Because anyone who happens to be following the Big Brother Live Feeds this season knows that – this season more than ever – there is a real disconnect between what and who we are seeing on TV thus far, and who these people are revealing themselves to be in “real life” on the live feeds. Do you not know what I’m referring to? Read on!

Instagram Roundup

There’s nothing like some mother/child time, right? Kelly Dodd took her daughter Jolie to Phoenix via private jet. How Lala Kent of her! Teen Mom star Jenelle Evans took the low key route. She just posted a selfie with her baby girl.

Kristin Cavallari shared photos with her children taking care of a baby bird. Shamari DeVoe shared a throwback photo breastfeeding her twin boys. This is probably going to get some attention, because… well, it’s 2019. People are just looking for reasons to be offended these days.

Danielle Staub Sold Wedding Ring To Pay Lawyer; Lindsay Lohan Denies Hookup With Jax Taylor

Last night’s episode of Watch What Happens Live was chock full of shade. Danielle Staub (shockingly) owned up to her bridezilla antics. Lindsay Lohan’s Beach Club namesake Lindsay Lohan talked Real Housewives and her rumored hook up with Jax Taylor. Host Andy Cohen was loving every second of it and so was I.

Ex On The Beach Season 2 Cast Announced; There Will Be A Mix Of Straight & Gay Contestants

The popular U.K. show Ex on the Beach made its United States debut in April 2018. It was everything I didn’t know I needed in a reality TV show. I got to see some of my favorite people from other reality TV shows under one roof. The contestants created endless drama. There were countless twists and turns. And to top it off everyone looks great in bathing suits.

Thankfully, Ex on the Beach will return for Season 2 a month from now. Just like the first season, this season’s cast members bring plenty of drama to the beach.
