19 Shocking Reality TV Scandals NO ONE Saw Coming (Well, Probably)

Reality TV and controversial, OMG moments go hand in hand. They’re the primary reason you watch The Real Housewives of Atlanta online (for example).

In the early days, though, such moments weren’t nearly as common or explosive. The Real World has nothing on some of the scandals of modern times.

Lately, it seems like we’re dealt one jaw-dropping reveal, moment or conflict after another. So many it’s almost become a struggle to keep up with them all.

That said, here are 19 of the biggest reality TV scandals of all time:

TLC Cancels Here Comes Honey Boo Boo


Give the network credit. It pulled the plug as soon as rumors spread of June Shannon dating her daughter’s former molester. EWWWWW!

Not all shockers take place with the cameras rolling, of course.

Jon and Kate Gosselin imploded off camera, while TLC just canceled Here Comes Honey Boo Boo because of June Shannon dating a child molester.

That never made it to air … and the show likely never would have if producers had known the tawdry extent of the Georgia matriarch’s past relationships.

Bottom line? Don’t expect an end to the madness anytime soon.

Despite what its title implies, you don’t watch Bad Girls Club: Redemption for the actual redemption, but for the bad girls clubbing each other. Just saying.

As long as producers and network executives believe that scandals equal ratings, awful behavior will continue to be the norm, rather than the exception.

Even if they don’t create drama on camera, the types of personalities likely to land shows in a more and more absurd TV landscape are likely loose cannons.

See now-canceled Sons of Guns and other examples.

This is just how it is these days. Some lament the state of TV for this reason, but there’s clearly an audience for it, and it appears to be growing if anything.

True Tori Sneak Peek: Who Wants More Kids?!

Tori Spelling and Dean McDermott are still undergoing therapy, which you know if you watch True Tori online or read any celebrity gossip on the web.

On the Season 2 premiere, Tori faked/had a pregnancy scare, which she was not too thrilled about, given all they have been through in the last year.

Well, talking to her therapist in a sneak peek from this week’s show, she makes it clear that she’s glad she isn’t with child … and doesn’t want to be again:

“How does that make you feel, Dean?” McDermott is asked for his take on the situation, and admits that yeah, it hurts, but Tori is sticking to her guns.

Dean just goes through the motions of married life, and it’s sad that she didn’t realize this about him until now, but at least she’s gotten a clue eventually.

In another sneak peek from True Tori Season 2 Episode 2, a producer asks her why she stays in the troubled marriage, she admits that it’s all for the kids.

“When there’s children involved, you look at a relationship differently than if there were no children. I think every woman would agree with that,” she declares.

The couple’s rocky relationship is clearly taking a toll on her. She was hospitalized for a nervous breakdown last week, and posted a photo with a cryptic caption:

“This sick in hospital I finally see how quickly life can take it all away from you. We all need 2 step up from inside & go 4 it! W/our friends by our side.”

“Sadly I’ve finally faced truth that 1 person will never be there 4 me. #TrueTori”

We know 1 person who would rather be with Emily Goodhand, at least for 1 night last year if not 4 ever. Just saying. Sometimes U need 2 tell the truth.

Tori and Dean Moment


Tori and Dean share a touching moment. So much to say about these two.

Breaking News: Jennifer Lawrence & Chris Martin Split

jennifer lawrence & chris martin (1)We never even got an official confirmation they were dating (although Jennifer Lawrence was spotted at some Coldplay events), but now the word is that ‘The Hunger Games‘ star and Chris Martin have split. Both People and E! News are reporting on the breakup. RELATED: Jennifer Lawrence opens up to Vanity Fair about the nude photo scandal.

A source claims the two were together as recently as October 21. There’s no word on what caused the split. Neither Jennifer’s nor Chris’s rep have responded to requests for comment.

I can’t say I’m too shocked, though. Jennifer had just split from Nicholas Hoult (again), and Chris had just “consciously uncoupled” from Gwyneth Paltrow. This relationship screamed “rebound.” They just seem to be in very different places in their lives: Jennifer’s at the height of her acting career while Chris has two kids.

Then again, maybe this is just some kind of spat that they can get past. We’ll see…

UPDATE: A source told Us Weekly that their hectic work schedules are the cause of the split.

They really like each other, but it’s just so complicated with so much going on.”

Jennifer Lawrence and Chris Martin: It’s Over!

The relationship between Jennifer Lawrence and Chris Martin has ended, according to E! News.

The couple began dating in June, shortly after Lawrence’s breakup with Nicholas Hoult. They attracted instant media attention, and not only because both Martin and Lawrence are A-list names.

Jennifer and Chris

Their age difference, coupled with the fact that Martin “consciously uncoupled” from his wife Gwyneth Paltrow just months before he began dating Lawrence left many surprised that the relationship lasted as long as it did.

No cause has been given for the split, and considering how secretive both parties were during their relationship, we may never know what prompted them to go their separate ways.

Sources say the 37-year-old Coldplay rocker supported the 24-year-old Oscar winner during the Jennifer Lawrence nude photo scandal that made headlines back in August.

Lawrence had reportedly earned the approval of Martin’s ex and had even spent time with his two kids.

Insiders claimed the couple was moving quickly and had even made plans to spend the holidays together.

However, last week, video emerged showing Martin and Paltrow getting close during a dinner date, leading many to believe that Martin is still carrying on a romantic relationship with the mother of his children. 

Both parties have yet to speak publicly about the split.

Ooookkay. Someone’s a big Kimye fan- LOL. There’s no question Kim and Kanye rock some eye-catching looks, style-wise. Is eye-catching the same as elegant? Well, beauty is in the eye of the beholder. It is fun to watch them just to see what they’re wearing this time, but I’ve gotta ask…

Jessica Chastain Sexy Side Slit At ‘Interstellar’ Premiere: Love It Or Hate It?

jessica chastain (1)Check out Jessica Chastain’s outfit for the premiere of ‘Interstellar’! From the front, it looks like she’s donned a simple black frock. Turn to the side, however, and you can see the slit that goes all the way up to her hip (maybe actually her waist) to reveal her lace tights/leggings underneath. Va-va-va-voom! RELATED: Jessica Chastain tells Glamour she was a “late bloomer.”

I’ve seen Jessica enjoying more than a few of the Fashion Weeks ever since she hit the A-list as an actress, so it’s clear she likes fashion. This is definitely an eye-catching gown for a premiere! When I first saw the dress from the front, I thought “frumpy.” Yet once I saw the shots of her from the side, I understood the completely covered-up look from the front. I think it’s a perfect dress for an event like a movie premiere. How about you?

Gene Simmons’ advice to women: ‘Stop depending on men’

Gene Simmons

This is a photo of Gene Simmons in Germany earlier this month. He wore a sombrero and pretended to be a mariachi band frontman.

Gene is promoting his new book, Me, Inc.: Build an Army of One, Unleash Your Inner Rock God, Win in Life and Business. The book is inspired by Sun Tzu’s The Art of War and talks about how he and Paul Stanley fashioned KISS as a business strategy (rather than merely a rock band). I can only imagine those discussions: “Dude, we’re gonna wear full-face makeup. I’m gonna stick my tongue out like this. Then the dollars and babes will roll in.” Well … it worked. Isn’t it a bit misleading for Gene to claim to be “an army of one” when KISS was clearly a group effort? Paul Stanley recently told Oprah how his first meeting with Simmons was was “insulting.” They worked it out and are still together 40 years later.

Gene visited Fox News to shill his book. He doled out some advice for women:

In an interview with Andrea Tantaros Friday, Simmons went as far as to say women should assume men will abandon them and thus devote their early lives to making money to support themselves.

“This is a very complex and difficult question to answer so I’m going to put it as simply as possible. Women: Stop depending on men. It’s as simple as that. Imagine there are no men in life,” Simmons said. “Find out that thing that you’re good for that makes the money and then get married and or have children from a position of strength.”

Tantaros pressed Simmons about his wife Shannon Tweed, who the rocker married in 2011 after 28 years together.

“You had the blessing of a woman who stuck by you, who raised your children,” Tantaros said. “I read this and I thought, wait a minute, he’s telling me to be selfish and put myself first but at the same time, he regrets those decisions to be selfish.”

Simmons said he regrets not marrying Tweed sooner. “It is a massive failing for me that I didn’t recognize the purity and sanctity of love,” Simmons said. “Why I didn’t marry Shannon when I first met her and dropped head over heels with her is the stupidity and arrogance and selfishness of man.”

[From Fox News]

Gene’s words make sense (in these quotes), but it’s up to any couple to decide their own money issues. If one side is happy being supported by the other (and vice versa), that’s fine. If a couple feels better about both sides contributing equally, that’s perfectly cool too. There is always a risk involved with being supported by a spouse. Divorce happens. That’s life.

My problem with this: Gene believes he’s dispensing wisdom to the masses, and I find him untrustworthy. He gets quoted all the time (mostly stuff from his Sex Money Kiss book) on various MRA discussion boards. I won’t link any of the sites because, ugh. A few quotes from Gene’s 2006 wisdom: “If you put a woman on a pedestal and try to protect her from the rat race you’re a male chauvinist pig.” Another one: “If you get a promotion ahead of her, it’s favoritism. If she gets a job ahead of you, it’s equal opportunity.” Plus “If you make a decision without consulting her, you’re a chauvinist. If she makes a decision without consulting you, she’s a liberated woman.

Yep. Gene Simmons influences the MRA groups who wreak havoc on the internet. These guys think all women are trying to suck men dry financially. These guys also believe that women shouldn’t try to advance their own role in society. They hack into celebrities’ iPhones because they hate women. If Gamergate gets mentioned, they’ll dox any woman who dares to speak against them. Is Gene responsible for the actions of MRA trolls? No, but he’s made his share of misogynistic statements.

Unrelated: Gene Simmons ate a hamburger at LAX on 9/29.

Kanye West had North paint a Birkin bag for Kim Kardashian’s b-day present

FFN_West_Kard_VAH_BJJ_102614_51568499

Here are some photos of Kim Kardashian and Kanye West flying from LA to San Francisco yesterday. Kanye ended up taking her to Game 5 of the World Series and it was the first time they’d been back to that stadium since Kanye proposed to her last year. You know what? I didn’t even know Kanye was into baseball. He’s never ranted about it, so how would I know? I don’t think much of Kim’s outfit here – the jeans are a tragedy and that leather jacket looks like it came from Michael Jackson’s closet.

Meanwhile, Andre Leon Talley has anointed the family Kardashian-West as “First Fashion Family,” whatever that means. Talley wrote a piece about it here – to Talley’s way of thinking, the Kardashian-West family’s most recent trip to Paris was nothing short of iconic and revolutionary. Kate Moss apparently adores them. Weird.

There are some quotes from Kim that are getting some attention this week too – it’s Kim talking about North and whether North listens to lullabies, etc:

Kim has revealed that her daughter North listens to music every day. She said the 16-month-old is starting to take after her rapper father, because she listens to her iPod, which is filled with tracks from a variety of genres, from the moment she wakes up right through until bed time.

Kim told People: ‘I put on these lullabies for her. I put on pop music, Kanye’s music. I have a whole iPod with everything all set up for her. Every day, from when we wake up, there’s music on. When we’re playing, when we go on our walk, every day there’s music on. I have a little Beats speaker, so we listen to music loud on our walks.’

However, sometimes the cute toddler is lucky enough to get a live performance from her dad. She said: ‘There are nights I force him [Kanye] to put her to sleep. There’s those nights when you’re exhausted and need a change of scenery, so I’ll say, “Dad, it’s your night.” I’ll listen by the door to make sure everything is going okay.’

Kim has also revealed she got a purse hand-painted by her daughter for her 34th birthday last week. Kim was over the moon when her husband gifted her a Hermès purse in celebration of her milestone on Tuesday, but she was left stunned when she learnt North had put her own personal touch on it.

She told People: ‘Kanye had a box, a purse, this Hermès purse, and I opened it and I thought it was so cool. It was all painted really cool and then there was my computer and it said, “Press Play.” I pressed play and my daughter was sitting outside painting the purse. I thought it was an artist that painted the purse, some custom thing. I thought it was some new artist, and it was my daughter. It was amazing and I have it all on video.’

[From The Daily Mail]

Ha, that’s funny about the purse. Remember how Kanye gave Kim another painted Birkin bag for Christmas last year? She only carried it once. She hated that obscene purse. Maybe she’ll carry the purse her daughter painted though. Maybe? As for North having her own iPod full of songs… considering how Kim and Kanye spoil this child, I kind of think having her own iPod is probably pretty reasonable.

Anne Hathaway in Richard Nicholl at the ‘Interstellar’ premiere: pretty or dated?

wenn21864929

Here are some photos from last night’s LA premiere of Interstellar. It had the feel of a big red carpet but there really weren’t many fashion-y people there beyond the principal actors. So I’m just focusing on the stars. Let’s start with Anne Hathaway, whose hair is really starting to look worlds better, right? She did the pixie-ish cut for too long after Les Mis. I’m really happy with her hair now – so much softer, so much better for her face. Annie’s dress is Richard Nicholl – pretty color, but kind of snooze. Lots of girls wore satin slipdresses back in the 1990s and I’m okay with that look making a comeback. Annie’s jewelry is James Banks Designs and she really wants it to be photographed. Um, doesn’t Anne’s husband design jewelry?

wenn21865403

wenn21864663

Here’s Jessica Chastain in black Givenchy. I like her styling a lot more than I like the dress. Jessica does tend to have red carpet issues usually, but there’s nothing awful here. The dress is a bit matronly from the front and “1980s music video girl” from the side with those lace panels.

wenn21864921

wenn21864925

Here’s Matthew McConaughey and Camila Alves. He’s in Dolce & Gabbana and she’s in Rubin Singer. Why does MM look so out of it these days? It’s like he refuses to step on a red carpet without taking ten huge bong hits beforehand.

And finally, here’s our boyfriend Wes Bentley, looking beautiful and healthy with his wife Jacqui Swedberg.
