The first season of the Temptation Island reboot was a hit. So, of course, the show is coming back for round 2! Plenty of reality TV stars got together to celebrate at the Temptation Island Season 2 premiere.
White Kanye himself, Vanderpump Rules star James Kennedy DJ’ed the party. His girlfriend Raquel Leviss was also on hand to support. Imagine if those two were actually a part of the Temptation Island cast. That would be some must-see TV. The Bella Twins, Nikki and Brie Bella also hopped in the DJ booth at the event. Season 1 couple Shari Ligons and Javen Butler showed up to support Season 2. They are the only couple from the first season that is actually still together. They got engaged during the finale. Season 1’s Kaci Campbell was also there among the Real Housewives, members of Bachelor nation, and other reality TV stars. It is probably such a relief for Kaci to not be a part of the drama this time around. She really went through it last season.
Brie and Nikki Bella were the standout cast members on Total Divas. So, of course, they got their own spin-off show Total Bellas. With two shows, their fans got to watch their lives all year long, essentially.
Now, the Bellas are done with the show that brought them into the mainstream. Does this mean that they are done with reality TV for good? Or will they just focus on their spin-off show?
What a journey Nikki Bella has been on since her split from John Cena last year! Fans of Total Bellas have seen Nikki embrace a new carefree rebellious attitude post engagement. She’s buying sports cars, smoking cigars, and FINALLY flirting again. This has been a far cry from the Nikki who was having a breakdown at her engagement party last year. Both her personal and professional lives are on the verge of reaching new heights in this next chapter.
Nikki’s recently HEADLINED THE FIRST EVER ALL WOMEN’S EVENT for WWE. That is a historic accomplishment that nobody can ever take away from ever. That event will go down as one of the greatest comebacks, and she did it alongside her sister Brie Bella and Ronda Rousey. On the personal side, she’s been somewhat shy at opening herself up to love again. However, we now have MAJOR updates on her status with WWE and the dating scene.

On tonight’s episode of Total Divas, the women are still in Lake Tahoe, but instead of the arguing and fighting from last week, there’s a lot of poetry, bonding and fighting fears going on tonight. Everybody hold hands and sing Kumbaya with me, okay?
On a serious note, it was actually a pretty cool episode. Here are women we know as characters on a show talking about their real-life fears. Let’s start with Trinity (Naomi) talking to Jon about wanting to live in Atlanta. She doesn’t want to move from Pensacola where Jon and his kids are. Trinity just wants a place to call her own in Atlanta so she can see her own family and friends who live there, maybe once a month. She wants to balance both Atlanta and Pensacola. Jon tells her she’s ‘trippin,’. Trinity tells Jon she’s getting an apartment with or without his consent.
Kandi Burruss appeared on last night’s episode of Watch What Happens Live. She discussed the Real Housewives of Atlanta cast trip in Miami. She clarified her comments about Porsha Williams and Dennis McKinley’s relationship. And of course, she got emotional talking about Gregg’s health struggles.
