While appearing on ‘Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen,’ Meghan McCain shared a message for Joy Behar. Joy said she did ‘not miss’ her while Meghan was on maternity leave!
Meghan McCain, 36, admitted that she has had a “rough reentry” back into The View, following a three-month maternity leave from her talk show. Not only does Meghan have to deal with the tense political climate, but tensions on set: Joy Behar point-black said “I did not miss you, zero” to Meghan on the Jan. 5 episode of The View. It had only been Meghan’s second day back on the job, and she shared her true thoughts on Joy’s curtness after Andy Cohen inquired about it on the Jan. 11 episode of Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen.
Meghan: "Joy, you missed me so much when I was on maternity leave. You missed me so much. You missed fighting with me."
“So it’s been such a rough reentry back into The View,” Meghan began, after welcoming her first child with husband Ben Domenech. “I mean I was on maternity leave for three months. I had a really hard birth, actually. I remember texting when I was in the hospital. I had preeclampsia, I had to have a magnesium drip.”
“I had a really hard time getting back to work,” Meghan later said, pointing out the “horrific attack on the Capitol” in Washington, D.C. on Jan. 6. With that said, Meghan moved onto her main point: Joy.
“And I will say, I missed everyone. Even if some people didn’t miss me, I miss the show. We’re a family,” Meghan revealed. She continued, “All these women were at my dad’s [John McCain‘s] funeral, we’ve been through a lot of sh-t together. I miss being on the show and I hope that we can all be examples, myself included, for where the show should go forward. Because whether we like it or not, I’m not going anywhere on the show, Joy’s not going anywhere on the show. We all have to live and co-exist together, just like Americans right now.”

Meghan was also not looking for an actual fight when she poked fun at Joy during that episode of The View that she was referring to. “Joy, you missed me so much when I was on maternity leave. You missed me so much. You missed fighting with me,” Meghan said amid a squabble on the Jan. 5 episode. However, Joy did not appreciate being interrupted.
“I did not. I did not miss you. Zero,” Joy said, and not in a lighthearted way. Meghan took offense, snapping back, “Oh, my God. You know what? That’s so nasty. That’s, like, so nasty,”“I was teasing but you said something rude. Really?”
The New Year’s Eve ball drop in Times Square will be virtual for the first time in its 114-year history. Watch it go down here, and learn where else you can watch the countdown!
This year, you won’t experience FOMO by watching the New Year’s Eve ball drop in New York City’s Times Square from your computer. That’s because just about everyone has to due to the pandemic, which has forced Times Square to turn away the public on New Year’s Eve for the first time since 1907 (the first year the ball dropped). But the show must go on — virtually, that is. You can watch a livestream of the ball drop right below on Dec. 31st, OR read on for more details on other fun ways you can watch the ball drop at midnight.
If you want to experience an even more intense version of the ball drop and the festivities leading up to it, head to this website — vnye.com — which will give you the option of watching the live broadcast of the New Year’s Eve celebration in Times Square from your laptop, or on the vnye app for your iPhone or Samsung. The website will offer multiple cameras for you to choose from: the main live show, the ball cam (which is what you’re looking for), the uptown cam, the times square cam, the countdown and downtown cam, the audience 1 cam, the audience 2 cam, the audience 3 cam and the world feed. All of these cameras will start streaming on Dec. 31 at 6:00 p.m. EST.
You don’t need to wait for Dec. 31st, though, to kick-start your NYE festivities. The vnye.com website (offered by Jamestown, which owns One Times Square where the ball drop celebration is annually held) has also constructed a virtual world that opened to online participants on Dec. 19.

Just because the ball drop celebration is virtual this year, doesn’t mean it’ll be any less special! Nearly 200 Waterford Crystals were installed into the ball before the 2021 celebration, and an exciting lineup of performers have been announced including Andra Day, Jennifer Lopez, Machine Gun Kelly, Billy Porter and more! Stay tuned for HollywoodLife‘s coverage of the New Year’s Eve 2021 celebrations in Times Square.
Sherri Shepherd clapped back at Kenya Moore, after the ‘RHOA’ star sparked a feud for naming Sherri as someone she’d ‘never’ want to guest star on ‘WWHL’ with again.
Sherri Shepherd, 53, threw the shade right back a day after Kenya Moore, 49, dissed her on the Dec. 14 episode of Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen. In case you missed it, Kenya was asked which guest she would “never” want to appear with again on Andy Cohen‘s show, and the Bravo star picked Sherri. “That was probably my worst appearance. I thought [Sherri] was trying to take over the show. She was very arrogant…She thought she was still on The View and she didn’t know she had apparently been fired,” Kenya had said, while recalling their time guest starring together on WWHL in 2014.
Sherri didn’t hesitate to clap back at Kenya. “It was so funny because I was trying to remember when I did Watch What Happens Live with Kendra,” Sherri began after Kenya’s recent interview was brought up on the Dec. 15 episode of Dish Nation, which Sherri began co-hosting in August. Sherri then went on to diss Kenya: “I was trying to remember and I wish that Kendra could pay me to care like she paid those dudes to be her boyfriend after Season 10, before she got fired from Real Housewives Of Atlanta.”
There is no proof behind Sherri’s accusation, but Kenya has had to deal with such rumors in the past. NeNe Leakes has previously claimed that Kenya wasn’t legally married to (her now estranged husband) Marc Daly, while one of Kenya’s exes — Walter Jackson — once claimed that Kenya asked him to play her boyfriend, which the Bravo star denied on Twitter in May (see below). Sherri didn’t end her shade there, though, and moved on to address the diss that Kenya had made about Sherri’s exit from The View in 2014.
Walter said I asked him to play my BF. He also said he wasn’t paid. I have never asked him that it was in retaliation of me saying what his ex wife said about him being gay. Walter got a cease and desist for lying on me #facts#RHOAReunionhttps://t.co/BawqDcTJzX
“Before I left The View, we won our first Emmy Kendra, and the ratings have never been higher since I have left,” Sherri continued. “So there you go Kendra, have a great day. I just have so much to do Kendra, I’m working on Dish Nation, I got my other show, I’m writing a book. It’s just so much in my head Kendra, but I want you to have a really nice day, working, because that’s what we’re both doing.”
Sherri and Kenya’s feud happened right after the Dec. 13 episode of RHOA, in which Kenya revealed her plans to divorce Marc. “I’m going to go ahead and file [for divorce]. But I feel like the best step for me is to file for the custody action, and doing a post-nuptial, and then after that’s all signed off, then filing [for divorce],” Kenya had told her co-star Cynthia Bailey. Kenya and Marc, who share their two-year-old daughter Brooklyn Doris Daly, announced their separation in Sept. 2019. However, on the very same episode of WWHL that Kenya shaded Sherri on, the Bravo star revealed that she has “not filed for divorce” after all, and that Marc is currently “fighting for his marriage.”
Kaley Cuoco was totally caught off guard on ‘WWHL’ when a fan asked her if ‘Superman’ star Henry Cavill, whom she dated for mere weeks in 2013, was ‘really made of steel!’
Kaley Cuoco took an unexpected trip down memory lane during her December 15 appearance on Watch What Happens Live. The Flight Attendant star, 35, received some fan questions during her visit with host Andy Cohen and one of them completely caught her off guard. One longtime admirer had a question for Kaley regarding her brief 2013 romance with Man of Steel star Henry Cavill. “Is the ‘Man of Steel’ really made of steel?”
“Oh my god,” Kaley blurted out laughing. Keeping the interview as professional as possible, she answered honestly and quickly. “I don’t know,” she said through more laughter. “I never say, ‘I don’t know,’” she reassured Andy following the surprising question. “I always have an answer — but I don’t know.”
Henry Cavill and Kaley Cuoco spotted holding hands in July 2013 [SplashNews].Kaley and Henry became a hot item over seven years ago when they briefly dated in July 2013. At the time, Henry, 37, had just come off of the major success of Man of Steel, which chronicles the origin of Clark Kent/ Superman. Kaley, meanwhile, was making audiences laugh as a part of the ensemble cast of the Emmy-winning sitcom The Big Bang Theory. Barely a month after the two started dating they decided to call it quits.
However, they have each moved on in their personal and professional lives! After her 2016 divorce from Ryan Sweeting, Kaley married equestrian Karl Cook. The pair became engaged in November 2017 and exchanged their ‘I dos’ on June 30, 2018. Henry, on the other hand, has decided that he is more comfortable with keeping his personal life under wraps.
Kaley Cuoco was asked about her past romance with Henry Cavill during her appearance on ‘WWHL’ [AP Images].Since the series finale of The Big Bang Theory in 2019, Kaley has set her sights on a totally different genre. She currently stars in HBO Max’s The Flight Attendant. The actress completely taps into a new skillset in her role as Cassie Bowden, a flight attendant who finds herself wrapped up in a murder mystery after waking up in the wrong hotel room, wrong bed, and next to a dead man! As for Henry, he currently stars on the epic Netflix fantasy series The Witcher.
The Biermanns may be leaving Atlanta and moving to Scottsdale, Arizona — their ‘home away from home’ — as Ariana prepares to go to ASU.
Kim Zolciak and her family got past the halfway mark on their road trip across the country, during the Nov. 24 episode of Don’t Be Tardy, which means they got that much closer to the next city they may eventually call home… forever. The former Real Housewives of Atlanta star revealed the big news in the first few minutes of this week’s episode, and we couldn’t believe what we were hearing.
After complaining about the heat and how it’d be “110 degrees” in Scottsdale, Arizona, Kim asked Brielle Biermann if she sent their real estate agent the list of houses they wanted to look at. “Yes, but let me narrow down a few,” Brielle replied before Kim explained their reason for wanting to move.
Kim Zolciak (Derek Blanks/Bravo)
“Scottsdale has been like our ‘home away from home’ per se, and we’re considering moving to Scottsdale. Especially if Ariana goes to [Arizona State University]. Our hairdresser is [in Scottsdale]. And we love it in Scottsdale,” Kim said.
Then, the family headed to some caves, and talk of their move took a backseat (no pun intended). However, in January, a source close to Kim told HollywoodLife EXCLUSIVELY that she was definitely moving to Arizona and “ready for a change”.
“The Biermann family plans on moving over the summer or in the late spring to Arizona,” a source close to the family told us at the time. “What started out as a joke, and then a potential thought, quickly became serious. Kim is having a lot of trouble with the idea of Ariana going away to college and she feels like nothing is tying her to Atlanta anymore.”
It should be noted that production on Season 8 of Don’t Be Tardy, which is currently airing, started in June 2019, so Kim’s discussion about moving on this week’s episode happened over a year ago. Our source confirmed the move was happening a few months later, in January 2020. And next week, we’ll get to see the houses they were looking to purchase!
But… in May 2020, Andy Cohenasked Kim about her family’s move to Arizona and it doesn’t seem like it has happened yet due to the pandemic. “[Ariana]’s enrolled in ASU right now, but we may pull her from that, she might go to Georgia [State University] just to figure out kind of this whole corona — why am I gonna pay 50,000 dollars for her to just do it, you know, on the computer in Arizona? It doesn’t make sense.” Kim said. “We’re, like, up in the air. I think a lot of people are up in the air.”
Want more drama? New episodes of Don’t Be Tardy air Tuesdays at 10pm on Bravo.
Matthew McConaughey was live with Jennifer Aniston and Brad Pitt as they acted out a sexy scene via a video table read for ‘Fast Times,’ and joked about their heat.
It was every fan of Jennifer Aniston and Brad Pitt‘s dream come true when the exes got extra flirty at the Sept. 17 Fast Times At Ridgemont High charity table read. Matthew McConaughey was live on zoom call with the pair and other A-list stars as the scene went down. Jen’s character Linda tried to seduce Pitt’s Brad Hamilton from the iconic 1982 film. Jen, 51, made her 56-year-old ex-husband completely turn red and blush through her sultry scene, and now Matthew is spilling if it was that steamy for the rest of the stars present on the video call.
The 50-year-old Oscar winner appeared on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen on Oct. 29, and a fan named Danielle asked about that moment during the table read, wondering, “Could you feel the sexual tension between Jennifer Aniston and Brad Pitt,” as the WWHL viewer clearly did.

Matthew burst out laughing loud and hard. “Could I feel the heat through the screen? It was so palpable, so palpable,” the father of three joked about the extraordinarily frisky scene between the former couple. “Hi Brad, you know how cute I always thought you were?” Aniston’s Linda said to Brad. “I think you’re so sexy, will you come to me?” Jen purred, as Brad’s character self-pleasured himself during the daydream scene.

The Dallas Buyers Club star then told the viewer, “I noticed it after that. That’s what a lot of the topic were, about that…about them. I actually didn’t notice anything through the screen. But it made for a good topic the next day.” Matthew was seen smiling as Morgan Freeman narrated the very R-rated description of Linda taking off her bikini top and describing Pitt’s Brad holding her her bare bosom, as the Moneyball star turned beet red. But apparently the sizzle fans saw wasn’t as obvious to Matthew through the star-studded zoom call.
You can watch Jen and Brad’s steamy scene starting at the 37:17 mark below:
Matthew was part of an A-list talent roster who signed up to do a table read of the classic 1982 coming of age comedy, including Julia Roberts, Jimmy Kimmel, Dane Cook, Henry Goulding, Shia LaBeouf, and Jeff Spicoli himself, OG Fast Times star Sean Penn. The money raised from the benefit went to Penn’s CORE disaster relief charity, which has been helping feed and provide resources to communities hit hard by the coronavirus.
Even before the reading began, Jen and Brad made fans melt with their adorable greeting to each other. When Brad joined the call, he first said hi to his The Mexican co-star Julia — calling her J.R. — then looked up into the screen and saw Jennifer. “Hi Aniston!” he said with a huge grin and she smiled back, responding “Hi Pitt!” Brad was positively beaming as he asked Jen, “How’re you doing?” and she twirled a strand of her golden hair and told him, “Good honey, how are you doing?” It was so incredible for the former couple’s fans to watch them interact again after their 2005 divorce. The way Jen said “honey” so sweet and friendly was absolute magic.
During the final presidential debate on Oct. 22, Donald Trump left people in tears after mistaking the continent of Europe for a country — ‘Game of Thrones’ star Sophie Turner included.
Donald Trump, 74, referred to the continent of Europe as a country during the final presidential debate on Oct. 22, and the flub didn’t miss Sophie Turner’s ears. The 24-year-old Game of Thrones actress immediately hopped onto her Instagram Story to share her reaction to the brain fart: a photo of her face, caught in mid-laughter. “He called Europe a country,” the HBO star wrote over her amused face.
Trump had been discussing working with other countries on finding a response to the coronavirus as he faced off against Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden, 77, at the Curb Event Center in Nashville, Tennessee on Thursday evening. “We also have others that we’re working on very closely with, other countries, in particular Europe,” Trump said in a tone so confident, it made the mistake even more apparent.
A post shared by sophiet (@bestsophieturner) on Oct 22, 2020 at 6:41pm PDT
Sophie, who just welcomed a daughter named Willa with husband Joe Jonas in July, wasn’t the only person who caught on to Trump’s geographical blunder. “Who’s gonna tell @realDonaldTrump that Europe isn’t a country?,” one person watching the debate asked on Twitter, while another tweeted, “Started the debate from the beginning and Donald Trump just referred to Europe as a country [laughing emoji] if it wasn’t real life it would be absolutely hilarious.”
Hi, Trump. Just reminding you that Europe is a continent, not a country.
— Preston “Just An Adjunct Professor of Law” Mitchum (@PrestonMitchum) October 23, 2020
Confusing Europe for a country wasn’t the only alarming comment Trump had made during the debate. The POTUS tried to claim that the 545 immigrant children who were torn apart from their parents at the U.S.-Mexico border beginning in 2017 and whose parents still can’t be found (per court documents reviewed by The New York Times) are “SO well take care of.”
Trump also caused a stir on Twitter for calling his hometown of New York City a “ghost town” because of the pandemic, as he tried to push for the complete reopening of the country. The observation confused NYC locals like The Real Housewives executive producer Andy Cohen, who tweeted that NYC is “not a ghost town,” while New York Mayor Bill de Blasio quipped on Twitter, “The only ‘ghost town’ will be Mar-a-Lago after you’re forced into retirement on Election Day.” As you can see, celebrities had a lot to say before the upcoming 2020 presidential election on Nov. 3, as more and more stars encourage fans to pay attention to politics and vote!
NeNe Leakes has officially confirmed that she’s leaving ‘RHOA’ after months of speculation over if she would be returning, revealing that it was a ‘hard decision’ for her to make.
UPDATE, 9/17/20, 5:15pm ET: A Bravo spokesperson tells HollywoodLife, “We wish Nene all the best in her future endeavors and thank her for sharing her journey for over a decade with the fans of The Real Housewives of Atlanta. She’s been instrumental since the start and will truly be missed, and maybe one day she’ll hold the peach again.”
ORIGINAL: Another OG has left the building. NeNe Leakes, 52, who began on The Real Housewives of Atlanta over a decade ago, has revealed that she’s leaving the hit reality show. The mother-of-two made the announcement in a September 17 video on her YouTube channel, titled, “Listen Closely, I got something to tell you!” NeNe said that after a lot of “emotional negotiations” with Bravo about her contract, she’s handing in her peach.
“There’s been a lot of emotions on both sides,” she shared with fans. “It’s been hard and I have made a hard, difficult decision to not be part of Real Housewives of Atlanta season 13,” adding that it “wasn’t an easy decision for me.” She reflected on the good memories she’ll hold onto from RHOA, too. “I’m just so happy that I can say that I was part of a genre that opened up a door for Black ensemble reality shows,” she said. “I want to thank everybody that has looked up to me over the years… I want to thank Bravo for all the memories… Thank you to the cast for all of the memories.”

Bravo head honcho Andy Cohen wrote an emotional message on Instagram following NeNe’s shocking announcement. “Nene Leakes is an icon of the genre. She is a gif and catchphrase machine. In 11 years of #WWHL, Nene has been our most frequent guest, and she is always A BLAST. Nene nicknamed me “Buttercup” the first day we met, and still calls me that today. Through her whole run, she has always had a serious concern and drive to maintain the success and well-being of #RHOA.
I am going to miss Nene on the show, but I’m hoping we work together again soon and will remain in each other’s orbits forever. XO, Buttercup. #Bloop #LowDownMonkeyWithAWig #CloseYourLegsToMarriedMen #WeSeeEachOthah #ISaidWhatISaid #TrumpCheck #ByeWig #SoNastyAndSoRude #Buttercup”.

NeNe first exited the Bravo series as a full-time cast member at the end of season seven, although she did make guest appearances for season eight. She retained her peach two years where she remained in that position up until season twelve. It wasn’t too much of a mystery that NeNe was planning on doing this given all the speculation over if she was going to sign on for season 13 that happened ahead of time. She deleted her Instagram account on Thursday, August 26, weeks before sharing the big news.
There was also all of those cryptic tweets she was posting that alluded to her being frustrated over her position with the long-running show. “The ladies are a little annoyed that Nene hasn’t signed her contract yet. They feel she does this every year and puts herself on this pedestal and they just roll their eyes a bit over it,” a source close to production EXCLUSIVELY told HollywoodLife in early August. Regardless, “They’re not surprised.”
Kandi Burruss, 44, who has been a full-time cast member on RHOA since season 2, chatted with HL back in July regarding her feelings on the NeNe situation. “Listen, she and I, we’re like oil and water sometimes, but I definitely would love for her to be back,” she said, referencing her very on again, off again relationship that they have had for years.

Several Real Housewives veterans exited their individual franchises in 2020, much to the shock of their adoring fans. Vicki Gunvalson, 58, and Tamra Judge, 52, exited RHOC in January. Others who have since revealed that they won’t be a Bravolebrity anymore include RHONY’s Tinsley Mortimer, 45, and Dorinda Medley, 55, as well as RHOD‘s LeeAnne Locken, 53.
Brandi Glanville has revealed that Denise Richards’ BFF turned enemy Heather Locklear showed her support amid her claims that she had an affair with Denise.
It turns out actress Heather Locklear was on team Brandi Glanville during season 10 of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. Friend of the show Brandi claimed she had a wild affair with married cast member Denise Richards, who then said she barely knew the former RHOBH regular. Brandi, 47, has revealed that Heather reached out to her to thank her for bringing her story about Denise to light. Denise, 49, and Heather, 58, were famously once best friends…until she started dating Heather’s estranged husbandRichie Sambora in 2006, just a few months after the couple of 11 years split. The women then became bitter rivals.
Brandi appeared on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen following the Sept. 9 RHOBH reunion show, where she mysteriously did not appear…despite having a dress ready and other cast members openly wondering where she was (hint — they thought Denise had something to do with Brandi’s absence). Andy asked Brandi a viewer question, “What non Beverly Hills Bravolebrities would we be surprised to know have reached out saying they were team Brandi?” She then responded that the former Melrose Place star hit her up.

“I would say maybe Heather Locklear,” Brandi replied while giving her head a teasing roll. Andy’s eyes grew big and he lit up, asking “Really?” in a juicy tone. He then asked her if they’d been DM’ing each other. “Heather just reached out to me and said ‘thank you’ with a bunch of hearts and prayers (emojis). And I was like…it just made me feel like I was bringing this side of Denise out for everyone to see and I wrote back ‘the truth always comes out,’ and she wrote a bunch more hearts,” Brandi explained.

Brandi wanted Heather to come on WWHL with her as a show of support. “And then I said ‘hey you should be on Watch What Happens Live with me and she said ‘I’ve already had a cease and desist from Denise, so I’m not going to do it,’” Brandi explained with a serious look on her face. Denise allegedly served Brandi with a cease and desist letter during RHOBH season 10’s filming, trying to to prevent Brandi from publicly discussing anything about their alleged affair.

RHOBH star Lisa Rinna called out Denise during the reunion as to why Brandi wasn’t there to tell her side of the story. Brandi had initially told Teddi Mellencamp and Kim and Kyle Richards in a RHOBH episode that aired in July about having a sexual affair in 2019 with Denise, who is married to actor Aaron Phypers. When confronted about it during a cast trip to Rome, Denise denied the whole thing and said she was nothing but acquaintances with Brandi. It then caused enough turmoil that she quit filming with the rest of the cast after the blow up.
During the reunion when Brandi’s absence was brought up, Denise got snide and asked, “Where is Brandi?”, but Lisa shot back, “Hold on — you know what? This is bulls***. Why isn’t Brandi here to do this with you!” seeming to hint that it was because of Denise’s cease and desist order against Brandi. After all of the alleged affair drama, Denise has ended up quitting RHOBH after two seasons. Her departure was confirmed to our sister site Variety hours before the RHOBH reunion special and WWHL aired.
Denise Richards has ‘not spoken’ to Lisa Rinna since the ‘RHOBH’ season 10 reunion but she’d like to speak to her again after having ‘no regrets’ about the drama that unfolded between them on the Bravo special.
Denise Richards, 49, is open to mending her friendship with Lisa Rinna, 57, after the two ladies argued about a tweet on the first half of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills season 10 reunion on Sept. 2, which can be seen in the video below. The reality star defended herself after Lisa accused her of liking a tweet that suggested Lisa should be fired, and claimed that she only liked it because of a shady comment that was included about Erika Jayne, 49. “Denise is upset with how the season ended, but she has no regrets about anything,” a source EXCLUSIVELY told HollywoodLife. “She spoke her truth and put her side out there and stands by it.”
“She’s happy it’s all been shown and is now over with,” the source continued. “She’d love to be able to repair her friendship with Lisa Rinna, as they have not spoken since the reunion, but she really feels she’s owed an apology.” Perhaps wanting an apology is because when reunion host Andy Cohen asked Denise directly if she liked the tweet because of the Lisa diss, she said, “No. It was by accident, and that’s the truth.”
After a drama-filled season and reunion, Denise isn’t sure if she’ll be returning to RHOBH next season yet. “She still hasn’t made a decision about next season, should Bravo give her an offer to return,
the source revealed. “She loves the show and has enjoyed it, but is focusing on acting at the current moment.” She’s not letting her latest argument with Lisa be a deciding factor either. ” Either way, Lisa Rinna won’t be influencing her decision,” the insider confirmed.
When she’s not butting heads with Lisa, Denise is making headlines for her alleged affair with co-star Brandi Glanville, 47. One of the major storylines on RHOBH this season was the drama caused by Brandi claiming she and Denise hooked up, which Denise denies. The bold Brandi stood by her claims throughout the season and even showed some of her co-stars, including Lisa, text messages between her and Denise, and after reading them, Lisa came to the conclusion that it’s true that they had an “intimate” relationship with each other.
Denise Richards is open to mending her friendship with Lisa Rinna, who can be seen in the pic above, according to one source. (MEGA)
It will be interesting to see where Denise and Lisa go from here but it’s great to know that Denise is willing to give their friendship another try. We’ll be on the lookout to see if Lisa is on the same page and whether or not these two ladies can work out their troubles soon!
Dorinda Medley is finding peace in leaving ‘RHONY’ after being a fan favorite for 6 seasons and we’ve learned EXCLUSIVELY why!
Dorinda Medley, 55, shocked fans when she announced she was leaving The Real Housewives of New York after 6 seasons, but she’s OK with doing so. “Dorinda is at peace with her decision to leave RHONY,” a source told HollywoodLife EXCLUSIVELY. “Being under contract with Bravo and filming as a housewife is not a priority of hers.”
Known for her one liners like, “Make it nice,” and “Clip,” Dorinda really left her mark on the franchise, and her departure was no different. On Aug. 25, she took to social media to share her feelings on the situation. “What a journey this has been,” Dorinda said as famous Bravo staples like Andy Cohen, 52, and Bethenny Frankel, 49, commented. “Thank you to Bravo and NBC for the incredible ride and to my cast mates for constant stimulation and entertainment. I wish you all health, happiness and success,” the post concluded.
A post shared by Dorinda Medley (@dorindamedley) on Aug 25, 2020 at 6:09am PDT
We have seen many ups and downs for Dorinda over the years as she opened both her NYC apartment and infamous Blue Stone Manor home in The Berkshires for several episodes. But family has always come first for her, and her reasonings to leave now are no exception. “She’s taking this time to focus on herself and her family,” our source added.
Just because she’s hanging up her apple for the upcoming season doesn’t mean she won’t want another one in the future! “She’s not saying she never wants to be on television or RHONY ever again,” the source said. “The schedule is really rigorous and takes a lot of time which she just isn’t able to give that kind of time right now.”
Dorinda clearly has a ton of support from her current co-stars as several of the ladies paid tribute to her the day of her announcement. Since her friendships with the ladies are genuine, it sounds like we could still see Dorinda in the future. “You may even see her pop-up next season here and there,” the source claimed. “She’s not opposed to filming, she just doesn’t want to be tied down to the schedule of it all at this time.”
Garcelle Beauvais washed the ‘RHOBH’ reunion aftermath drama right out of her hair by showing off gorgeous new deep blue locks. We’ve got the before and after makeover photos.
Following one of the most intense Real Housewives of Beverly Hills reunion tapings ever, first-year cast member Garcelle Beauvais decided to change up her look. The 53-year-old beauty has a new blue hair color she’s rocking, and it look amazing! The actress first shared her gorgeous new hue via an Instagram post on July 27, writing, “Tangled up in #blue,” referencing the name of the classic Bob Dylan song while adding, “#lovebeingagirl #switchup.” Garcelle wore her hair in the same style during a July 29 appearance on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen, with her blue hair slightly straightened with soft waves.
Garcelle got props on her new blue hair from her fellow RHOBH star Dorit Kemsley, 44, who commented, “So fun! Looks great.” But none of her other cast mates commented, as they’re all apparently still trying to recover from the super intense reunion taping on July 16.

During WWHL, Andy asked her, “What was your reaction after you finished your first reunion?” Garcelle let out a big sigh and rolled her eyes. “I was exhausted. I was drained, I was shocked by the…It was a lot. It took me two days to shake it honestly.” Fellow RHOBH newcomer Sutton Stracke — who also appeared on WWHL as a guest — agreed it took her a few days to get negative energy off.
Andy noted how Garcelle unfollowed cast mateLisa Rinna, 57, on social media after the reunion taping. “After the reunion it was a lot for me. I just felt like she was…the stakes were too high for something that really is between Denise and her husband. It just seemed too much for me,” Garcelle said about how Lisa responded to Brandi Glanville‘s allegation that she had an affair with married Denise. Garcelle has been friends with the former Bond girl since long before appearing on RHOBH, and thought Lisa was way too harsh on Denise.
Despite the hellish reunion, Garcelle said she’s glad she appeared on season 10 of the Bravo hit. “I am glad I did it,” she told Andy. “It definitely challenged me. It made me grow and when I don’t like things that are uncomfortable, I try to shy away sometimes. But yeah, I’ve had a ball. Thank you for having me. It’s been really cool.”
Elizabeth Hurley has done it again! The actress & designer stunned as she showed off a sexy striped swimsuit from her own ‘Elizabeth Hurley Beach’ line.
Elizabeth Hurley, 55, is so gorgeous! The Royals alum modeled a two-piece striped bikini in her latest Instagram photo, posted to her account on Sunday, July 26. As always, Elizabeth slayed in the look by her own line Elizabeth Hurley Beach, showing off her insanely toned body and curves. “The Great Escape,” she captioned the pic, including a kissing-face emoji. The British-born actress was all-smiles as she posed in the scenic outdoors, with lush green trees surrounding her with a glimpse of a lake or the ocean behind her.
She accessorized with a bold black pair of sunglasses, opting to keep her highlighted brunette locks back in a bun! The Estée Lauder spokeswoman appeared to be makeup free, showing off her perfect complexion which she has often credited the brands’ holy grail product: the Advanced Night Repair Serum, which she admitted to using “religiously twice a day” since 1995. Sunscreen is also a must-have for the beauty — specifically Clinique’s SPF 50. “English sunshine….. but with my trusty SPF 50,” she wrote in a caption, holding up the item as she sported a yellow bikini bottom on May 22.
Elizabeth is no stranger to bomb swimsuit photos, and has proved she’s the bikini queen of summer in recent weeks! Back in May, she looked absolutely amazing in a turquoise blue two piece, featuring a strapless top and low-rise bottom. “Somewhere over the rainbow…. is a #HasinaBikini waiting for you- named after one of my best friends @haseenajethmalani,” she captioned the May 30 snap, shouting out her close friend Haseena Jethmalani. Elizabeth also captured a beautiful rainbow with her camera!
While she often appears to be soaking up the sun and relaxing in her swimwear, she did recently reveal that she also works out in her bikinis! The Austin Powers: International Man Of Mystery actress lifted two small, hot pink weights in a video posted on May 19, rocking a matching paisley-print two piece. “Every day, doing a few arm exercises,” she narrated in the short clip, filmed in her stunning terrace area. “#lockdown #eveningsun #birdsong @elizabethhurleybeach #kashmirbikini,” she put in her caption, hashtagging the $190 “Kashmir” bikini available on her website.
The 55-year-old was once again glowing in a snap shared to the official Instagram account for Elizabeth Hurley on July 1. Posing on an unidentified but breathtaking beach, Liz raised her arms to the clear-blue sky as she rocked a baby blue and lavender colored triangle bikini top. The boho-inspired item featured luxe gold chain details, adding a touch of glam to the $167 item. She looked so happy and full of joy in the photo, and looked absolutely incredible, as always.
Elizabeth — who is mom to son Damian Hurley, 18 — has proved to have an extensive bikini collection over the years, including a leopard print one. She sported the flirty printed item in a beach photo snared to the Elizabeth Hurley Beach account on June 1. Hugh Grant‘s ex was once-again all-smiles as she frolicked on the beach, staying covered up in a gorgeous paisley printed kimono with taupe fringe details.
Prior to quarantine, Elizabeth admitted to Watch What Happens Live host Andy Cohen that she doesn’t work out that much. “None, sorry,” she replied to Andy when he asked about her workout plan, adding that she avoids dairy and eats tons of fruits and vegetables. Well, whatever Elizabeth is doing — she looks absolutely amazing!
The Chicks’ music career was nearly derailed after lead singer Natalie Maines dissed then-President George W. Bush over the Iraq war. Now she says she’d kiss the former POTUS when comparing him to Donald Trump.
One of the best things to ever happen to George W. Bush‘s presidential legacy is Donald Trump‘s current presidency. The Dixie Chicks — now known as justThe Chicks — lead singer Natalie Maines believes that the Bush administration’s lies over weapons of mass destruction in Iraq seems lesser in comparison to the volume of lies that Trump tells. Despite saying “We’re ashamed the President of the United States is from Texas,” in concert days before the 2003 U.S. invasion of Iraq, Natalie now says she’d have a huge “love fest” with Bush today, because of where Trump has taken the country.
The Chicks appeared remotely on the July 21 episode of Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen. The 52-year-old host read off a question from a viewer who wanted to know Texas-native Natalie’s “reaction to the backlash Ellen got last fall when she was sitting next to George W. Bush at a Cowboys game.” Daytime talk show host Ellen DeGeneres, 62, posed with the 74-year-old conservative former president at a Cowboys game versus the Green Bay Packers on Oct. 6, 2019. She later responded to massive Twitter backlash by reminding everyone to be unconditionally kind to one another, regardless of political beliefs.

Bush and wife Laura walk off the field after participating in a ceremony with Medal of Honor recipients during a NFL game featuring the Dallas Cowboys versus the Green Bay Packers in Arlington, Texas on Oct. 6, 2019.

Andy asked “Did you follow that at all?” 45-year-old Natalie smiled and responded, “I did see that. You know I joke that today I might actually make out with George Bush.” Andy then inquired, “I was actually going to ask you that and I’m sure you’ve been asked before. But does the current president at least make you rethink at all your feelings for George W. Bush?”
Natalie replied, “Yes, I mean I don’t rethink that I didn’t want to go to war and that weapons of mass destruction were a lie,” she snarked. “But yes, it would be a huge love fest if I saw George Bush right now. Because of where we’re at with this current president.”

The Chicks’ career nearly imploded after the massive backlash following Natalie’s 2003 concert comment about then-President Bush. Fans turned against them as being unpatriotic, and many country radio stations stopped playing their songs. The aftermath was featured in the 2006 documentary Dixie Chicks: Shut Up and Sing. The trio released a successful album in 2006, Taking the Long Way, but it would be seven years before they hit the road touring again in 2013. They finally released their studio follow up album Gaslighter on July 17, 2020, 14 years after Taking the Long Way.
Andy Cohen threw fans into a tizzy with this IG post of him with cardboard cut outs of the ladies — with several believing the pic could mean Kyle & Teddi are next to be fired!
Did Andy Cohen just give Real Housewives of Beverly Hills fans a hint about the shows’ future? The 52-year-old Watch What Happens Live host shared a photo of himself posing at home with life size cardboard cut outs of the current cast, including Kyle Richards, 51, Denise Richards, 49, Erika Girardi, 49, Lisa Rinna, 57, Dorit Kemsley, 44, Garcelle Beauvais, 53, and Teddi Mellencamp, 39. “#RHOBH Reunion Cosplay… I miss them!” Andy captioned his post, shared to his Instagram account on Friday, July 18.
A post shared by Andy Cohen (@bravoandy) on Jul 17, 2020 at 3:24pm PDT
While it looked like Andy was simply having some fun in his backyard, some fans read into the photo as a possible hint about who could be leaving the series after this season — in particular, OG cast member Kyle and Teddi, who joined in season 8. “Kyle and Teddi on the end…is this a hint as to who won’t have a diamond next?” one of Andy’s 3.9 million followers added. “I hope this would be the seating order. Goodbye Kyle & Teddi!” another fan commented, while a third pondered why Erika and Lisa Rinna were “seated the closest” to the Housewives EP. The comments play into the long running theory that those who sit closest to Andy during reunions are safe for the upcoming season, but those seated furthest could be in jeopardy.

The post comes just a day after the ladies filmed the reunion for season 10, which was “bulls—” according to Lisa Rinna. “Reunion was bulls— today,” the Days Of Our Lives alum began her post, written in white text over a green background. “I’ve never said that in 6 years. I guess cease and desists do work,” she added, referencing the alluding to the cease and desist letter that Denise Richards, 49, sent to Brandi Glanville, 47. The letter was sent after Brandi alleged that she had a sexual relationship with Denise. After the reunion taping, fans quickly noticed that Denise unfollowed Lisa, Erika, and Teddi.
Notably, newcomer Sutton Stracke, 49, was not included in Andy’s latest photo as she was already moved to a part-time role on the series. “My ex-husband just was adamant that [my kids’ could not film with me, and I totally get it,” she explained on the May 22 episode of podcast Reality Life with Kate Casey. “It was hard. It was a hard blow because, you know, it’s exciting to do,” she also said.
Khloe Kardashian dished about co-parenting 2-year-old True to Andy Cohen in this ‘KUWTK’ bonus scene, noting that she has ‘to be an adult’ in the situation.
Khloe Kardashian, 36, didn’t told back on talking about her relationship with ex Tristan Thompson, 29, while at an event with Andy Cohen back in October. “How’s co-parenting?” the Watch What Happens Live host asked at the re-opening of the Hard Rock Hotel in Hollywood, Florida last fall. “You know what, Tristan and I are in a really good space,” the Good American founder — who shares 2-year-old True with Tristan — replied. Andy noted, “If anyone could get in a good space with him, it’s you.”

“It’s like I have to be an adult. Why make it difficult for myself for the rest of my life? I have to deal with him,” Khloe admitted, referencing past cheating drama with the Cleveland Cavalier player. “He’s [True’s] dad and he’s a great dad to her,” Khloe went on. “So I’m not gonna drag my feet, I’ll make it as good as I can. Because that would just be harder on me. And so, it’s in a really good place. I praise things like that,” she also said.”That’s good!” Andy added, before asking the Keeping Up star for some advice about dealing with publicly posting his adorable son Benjamin Allen, 1.
“Is True on your show?” Andy, who became a father in Feb. 2019 via surrogate, asked Khloe, who confirmed True does appear on Keeping Up With The Kardashians. He explained, “My mom is getting to me. She says I’m posting too much of Ben [on social media]. She’s like, ‘You can’t do this. He didn’t choose this.’ My sister is getting on me. But he’s so cute, I can’t handle it!” It turns out, Khloe has had a similar dilemma with cutie patootie True.
“When I was pregnant, I was like ‘I’ll never post her’,” Khloe admitted. “Then I had her had her and you’re like, ‘you’re so cute.’ I’m like the Calabasas mom. I’m like the biggest loser. I make homemade bread now,” she joked. Andy quickly corrected her, saying “You are not the biggest loser. You’re the coolest Kardashian!” Also in attendance at the event were Scott Disick, 37, and his then-girlfriend Sofia Richie, 21. “I’m here with Scott, and Sofia — his girlfriend. We’re just a crazy bunch of people that intertwine,” Khloe hilariously said.
While Khloe has denied rumors that she and Tristan are back together — flatly shutting down speculation that they’re engaged — the exes have been spending plenty of time together! Tristan was recently in attendance at her 36th birthday bash, and the pair were also photographed on the 4th of July together. A source told HollywoodLife EXCLUSIVELY this month, “They are getting along better than ever for the sake of True and are just focused on co-parenting. There is no truth to the [engagement] rumors whatsoever.
It appears Ryan Murphy’s biggest muse isn’t a fan of his other leading lady. Sarah Paulson refused to say anything positive about Lea Michele when asked about past co-stars calling out her alleged on-set antics.
There’s that old saying that if you don’t have anything nice to say, don’t say anything at all. Apparently Emmy winning actress Sarah Paulson is a big believer in that. The 45-year-old refused to talk about the headlines surrounding fellow Ryan Murphy favorite Lea Michele‘s alleged diva antics towards her Glee and Broadway co-stars. Both women are cherished stars for the creative wunderkind and producer, so when Sarah appeared on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen, the subject of Lea’s accusations of awful behavior came up.
“Since you and Lea Michele are two of Ryan Murphy’s muses, what do you make of the recent news of her on-set behavior?” Andy asked Sarah on July 9. Though they were both in remote locations, they each stared into the camera with smiles on their faces. Andy looked like he was dying to see if the longtime American Horror Story star would spill, while Sarah gave a forced grin like she wanted to say something, but there’s no way she was going to.

After a couple seconds of awkward silence, Sarah told Andy, “I’m having a weird connection, I can’t really hear you,” hoping to avoid answering the question. Fellow guest, Real Housewives of New York star Sonja Morgan then broke the ice, asking “Isn’t there a thing called pleading the fifth on this show?” referring to one of Andy’s truth-telling games on the show where a guest can take a pass on answering one really damning question. Sarah agreed about wanting to “plead the fifth” and Andy moved on without Sarah giving an answer about Lea.
Ryan made Lea a star by casting the Broadway actress as Rachel Berry in Fox’s Glee, which ran from 2009-2015. Once that series wrapped, Ryan cast her in his next Fox show, Scream Queens. Meanwhile, the 54-year-old TV creator/producer upped Sarah’s Hollywood profile, casting her in his American Horror Story anthologies and her Emmy winning turn as prosecutor Marcia Clark in America Crime Story: The People Vs. O.J. Simpson.

While Sarah has become one of the most dimensional and in-demand actresses in Hollywood, Lea has been getting tons of bad press from former co-stars who claimed she was a nightmare to work with. It started on June 1 when season six Glee actress Samantha Ware, 28, called out Lea, 33, for making her life “living hell” on set. Samantha — who is Black — shared a tweet that Lea wrote about Black Lives Matter where she wrote, “George Floyd did not deserve this. This was not an isolated incident and it must end” with the hashtag “#BlackLivesMatter.”
Samantha then tweeted in all caps, “Remember when you made my first television gig a living hell?!?! Cause I’ll never forget. I believe you told everyone that if you had the opportunity you would ‘sh*t in my wig!’ amongst other traumatic microaggressions that made me question a career in Hollywood.” It opened up floodgates, as several lesser known Glee actors claimed they were mean-girled by Lea on set.
LMAO REMEMBER WHEN YOU MADE MY FIRST TELEVISON GIG A LIVING HELL?!?! CAUSE ILL NEVER FORGET. I BELIEVE YOU TOLD EVERYONE THAT IF TOU HAD THE OPPORTUNITY YOU WOULD “SHIT IN MY WIG!” AMONGST OTHER TRAUMATIC MICROAGRESSIONS THAT MADE ME QUESTION A CAREER IN HOLLYWOOD… https://t.co/RkcaMBmtDA
On June 3, Lea’s OG Glee co-star Heather Morris wrote on Instagram, “Was she unpleasant to work with? Very much so; for Lea to treat others with the disrespect that she did for as long as she did, I believe she SHOULD be called out.” She then pointed out, “It’s also on us because to allow it to go on for so long without speaking out is something else we’re learning with the rest of society.”
That same day, Lea issued an apology, but it didn’t get a warm reception as she used the word “perceived” several times. “What matters is that I clearly acted in ways which hurt other people,” she wrote on Instagram. “Whether it was my privileged position and perspective that caused me to be perceived as insensitive or inappropriate at times, or whether it was just my immaturity and me being unnecessarily difficult, I apologize for my behavior and for any pain which I have caused.”
Even after her apology, her former Glee co-star and ex-boyfriend Matthew Morrison wouldn’t stand up for her. When asked about all of the press about Lea’s bad behavior on FUBAR Radio’s Access All Areas on June 24, he deferred by saying, “You want to be a good, pleasant person to be around. That’s about all I’m going to say on that.”
But her former Broadway Fiddler on the Roof co-star Craig Ramsaywasn’t so diplomatic when asked about Lea on David Yontef‘s Behind The Velvet Rope podcast. He explained, “I think she’s a despicable, horrible human being. I think she has lost touch with reality.” He then added, “As far as Lea Michele is concerned, I think she is one of the most entitled people I have ever come across in this business!” Ouch. Talk about a bad review.
Rachel Lindsay is advocating for the ladies on Matt James season to be ‘vetted’ to avoid another racist contestant — which she publicly experienced on her season of ‘The Bachelorette.’
Rachel Lindsay, 35, is talking about the hateful racism she encountered as the first Black Bachelorette. “[I got it] from the audience…a lot of nasty messages trolling,” Rachel admitted to Andy Cohen on Watch What Happens Live. “I definitely experienced it when it came to picking the men. My husband [Bryan Abasolo] is Colombian so I got a lot of racism towards the fact that we were in an interracial relationship,” she added.
The lawyer made headlines back in 2017 for being the first Bachelor or Bachelorette of color, and remains the franchise’s only Black lead to this day. While season 21 was definitely a success for Rachel when it came to finding love, it was unfortunately discovered that one of the contestants, Lee Garrett, had made racist tweets prior to the start of the series. “I did have a racist contestant on my season,” Rachel explained. “They said they hadn’t done a good job of vetting out that he was racist or had done racist things in the past — but I would hope in the future it would never happen again. They received a lot of heat from that,” the Dallas, Texas native noted. Lee was removed from the series two weeks into production.

“One of the things that I’m fighting for with Matt James as the first Black Bachelor is for them to do a better job of vetting contestants. You need a person of color in the decision room so that doesn’t happen to them,” Rachel explained to Andy and Senator Cory Booker. Prior to the announcement of Matt, Rachel had been actively advocating producers to diversify the long running reality series in front of and behind the camera — and while she’s thrilled to see the first Black Bachelor, she questions the timing.
“It does seem like a reaction to what’s happening in our country. Did a man have to die in such a public way on a national stage for you to say ‘now is the time to have a Black Bachelor?” she asked, referencing the murder of 46-year-old George Floyd in Minneapolis, MN. “That’s what I hate — it’s taking away from this moment. What I wanted was some acknowledgement and some recognition that they’ve been wrong in part of the problem and that they’re going to vow to take the necessary changes to bring diversity internally and to more contestants of color on the show.”
Producers and ABC have since responded to Rachel about making some serious changes to the show. “They told me that they heard me. And that they are wanting to do more and make changes. And they actually did release a statement after they announced [Matt James], and that they’re vowing to make changes internally and to have more contestants of color,” Rachel added.
Stars like Taylor Swift and Selena Gomez celebrated on June 15 after the SCOTUS, in a historic ruling, declared that gay and transgender workers would be protected from workplace discrimination.
The Supreme Court ruled on June 15 that the Civil Rights Act of 1964 protects gay and transgender workers from workplace discrimination, and celebrities are rejoicing. Stars like Selena Gomez and Taylor Swift, passionate allies of the LGBTQ community, took to Twitter after the ruling was announced to share their joy with fans. “YES!! Thank you to the Supreme Court Justices who voted in favor and all the advocates who have fought so hard for this! We still have a long way to go to reach equality, but this is a beautiful step forward,” Taylor tweeted, adding rainbow and heart emojis.

The Supreme Court ruled 6-3 that LGBT workers be protected under the law, which prohibits sex discrimination in the workplace. The language of the law, according to the Supreme Court justices, applies to discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity, as well under Title VII. “An employer who fires an individual merely for being gay or transgender defies the law,” Justice Neil Gorsuchwrote for the majority in the ruling. It’s a stunning victory for LGBTQ Americans, and a somewhat shocking one; the Supreme Court currently leans right, but Gorsuch, a Trump-era appointee who succeeded Antonin Scalia, voted with the more liberal judges.
So many more stars joined Taylor in celebration on Twitter. Her BFF Selena tweeted out an article declaring victory in the decision, writing, “Great news,” along with rainbow and heart emojis. Karlie Kloss, who is marred to Jared Kushner‘s brother, Joshua Kushner, tweeted, “Today the Supreme Court ruled in a 6-3 decision that the 1964 Civil Rights Act, which banned employee discrimination on the basis of race, color, religion, sex or national origin, also protects LGBTQ employees from workplace discrimination!” She added tons of rainbow heart emojis, of course.
Today the Supreme Court ruled in a 6-3 decision that the 1964 Civil Rights Act, which banned employee discrimination on the basis of race, color, religion, sex or national origin, also protects LGBTQ employees from workplace discrimination! ❤️💚💜💛💙🧡
Katy Perry joked about how she was expecting the worst — and definitely wasn’t in the mood to hear more bad news. “I was like, not today Satan” she tweeted, along with the prayer hands and rainbow heart emojis. Watch What Happens Live host Andy Cohen‘s tweet about the situation was a little more… colorful. No pun intended. “Hey Brett Kavanaugh — f**k you,” calling out the Supreme Court justice who voted against the decision. You know the guy.
Bette Midler wrote about the SCOTUS decision in the way that only she can. “Hooray! The Supreme Court just issued a landmark ruling saying that Federal law protects LGBTQ workers from discrimination. The vote was 6 humans to 3 backward-looking nincompoops.” She didn’t go all in on what she thought of those “nincompoops,” but you know she wanted to.
Hooray! The Supreme Court just issued a landmark ruling saying that Federal law protects LGBTQ workers from discrimination. The vote was 6 humans to 3 backward-looking nincompoops.
“An employer who fires an individual for being homosexual or transgender fires that person for traits or actions it would not have questioned in members of a different sex,” Justice Gorsuch wrote in his ruling. “It is impossible to discriminate against a person for being homosexual or transgender without discriminating against that individual based on sex.”
50 Cent sang a much different tune while talking about his former rival, Wendy Williams, during his May 5 appearance on ‘WWHL.’ The ‘Power’ star revealed what really happened at that infamous pool party!
50 Cent may have exaggerated his story a bit. In Aug. 2019, the rapper and actor posted a video of Wendy Williams, 55, outside of his Tycoon Pool Party in New Jersey, making it seem a though the talk show host had trouble getting in. Nearly nine months later, a viewer on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen wanted the real scoop. “What’s the real story behind Wendy Williams and your pool party? Did you really kick her out?,” asked the fan, whose question was read by host Andy Cohen.
50, who was a guest star on Tuesday night’s show, didn’t launch into a story about a wild feud. In a calm tone, he replied, “No, they kinda of — she had stayed at the front and then Snoop [Dogg] came over there to talk to her. Because she really came to see Snoop.” And that was that — 50 had no insults for Wendy, which was very uncharacteristic of the rapper!
Like 50 said, Wendy was just trying to have a chat with Snoop to keep the fun rolling on her son Kevin Jr.’s 19th birthday! “Wendy knew that 50 would be at the party but she wasn’t aware it was being hosted by him. There were a lot of celebrities in attendance and Wendy just thought the party would be a fun way to continue celebrating Kevin Jr.’s birthday,” a source EXCLUSIVELY told HollywoodLife shortly after the birthday celebrations. Wendy and Kevin Jr. even got a photo with Snoop himself!
At the time, 50 and Wendy had a long-running feud. After Wendy pulled up to 50’s pool party, he posted a clip of The Wendy Williams Show host at the entrance and didn’t write the nicest caption. “[Thinking face emoji] you can’t just show up to my PARTY if you been talking about me…B–CH wait out side,” he captioned the video clip. However, the rivals appeared to end their feud this past February!
In an unprecedented move, Wendy called 50 both her “friend” and “legendary” for executive producing the legal drama series For Life (inspired by Isaac Wright Jr.’s inspiring story) on the Feb. 6 episode of her daytime talk show. It looks like the truce was real!
Kyle Richards opened up about what ‘RHOBH’ is like without her fellow OG, Lisa Vanderpump! Her co-star, Teddi Mellencamp, also gave her two cents on how the show has changed during their appearance on ‘WWHL.’
Kyle Richards, 51, didn’t deny that it was a big change to film The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills without her longtime co-star Lisa Vanderpump, 59. However, she has learned to adapt! While appearing on the “After Show” segment for the April 29 episode of Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen, Kyle revealed what it actually felt like to film without the only other person who had stayed on the show since Season 1. “People keep asking me if it was weird for me to do the show without Lisa, and before we started I did feel weird,” Kyle confessed to Andy Cohen. “Because we had started together, 10 years ago.”
Kyle doesn’t feel the same way anymore, though. “But once we started filming the show just like takes off and all these women have so much stuff going on,” she explained. “Things start happening that you really don’t think about it honestly.” At that point, Teddi Mellencamp — another guest star on the show — chimed in, saying, “I’ve been able to get to know everybody in such a different way than I did in my past two seasons as well.”
The conversation came up since Andy was looking to see if Kyle and Teddi would agree that Season 10 was a “fresh start,” since the drama surrounding LVP has been left behind. “Her name came up once in the first episode in a cheeky way — and she is not an issue this season,” he observed in a matter-of-fact way (with no shade intended, mind you). This drama is what drove Lisa off the show.
“Sign up, you’re [a] fu***ng target for 25 episodes of them just talking about me, and relentlessly pounding on me, when I was at a very fragile time in my life,” Lisa EXCLUSIVELY told HollywoodLife at BravoCon in Nov. 2019. While filming the show, Lisa had also been processing the tragic suicide of her brother Mark, all while juggling the drama of Puppygate. On top of that, fans saw Lisa and Kyle’s friendship end right on the show. Kyle had confronted Lisa over a rumor that claimed the restaurateur sold a Puppygate story (which painted Dorit Kemsley in a bad light) to Radar Online, which Lisa adamantly denied. As a result, Kyle was kicked out of Villa Rosa, and Lisa’s relationship with the RHOBH cast just wasn’t the same from there on out.
Not even exes of friends are off limits for Drake. The 6 God has been going around so almost every other week you will hear another dating rumor, only this time the evidence is mounting. The Toronto rapper and supermodel Bella Hadid have been rumored to be dating for a few weeks now, and while some of us just brush it off as just another Drake dating who rumor, at some point you can’t continue to be in denial.
Things got very interesting last week when Us Weekly published a story claiming that Drake hosted a birthday bash for Bella at the Socialista Lounge in New York City. The article went a step further to claim that Drake paid for the entire affair. “[Drake] planned and paid for everything,” sources said. Paparazzi snapped a photo of Drake leaving the party on Monday night, but Bella Hadid never left with him. Some sources are saying that the two later hooked up at his hotel and spent the night together.
Bella Hadid’s mom, Yolanda, was on Watch What Happens Live! a few nights ago where host Andy Cohen grilled her about the Drake dating rumors. He asked her flat out if they are together and not only did she became extremely uncomfortable about the question, she also didn’t outright deny it either. “The’re friends,” she answered when Cohen pressed her for a response.
Back in June, Drake and Bella were spotted having dinner at The Nice Guy restaurant in Hollywood and that sparked the dating rumors. The Victoria Secret model dated Drake’s homeboy The Weeknd last year before their split. The XO singer then moved on and started dating her now former friend Selena Gomez who use to date fellow Canadian singer Justin Bieber. So perhaps these Canadian superstars are rotating the same circle of women.
