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.

Jon Gosselin Reportedly Leaves Trashed Home Strewn With Garbage, Abandoned Kitten After Eviction

Jon Gosselin’s former landlord is speaking out in the aftermath of his recent eviction, and suffice it to say, she does not paint a positive picture of the man.

Getting Smoked

Linda Eways, who evicted Jon Gosselin from her house in Wernersville, Pa., says she paid a surprise visit to the property after she thought he’d moved out.

And he had … for the most part. He certainly left his mark on the place.

Not only did the father of eight leave the house trashed, strewn with garbage and debris with walls and doors damaged from Jon’s dog, he left something behind:

A kitten.

Yes, the landlord says she discovered a tiny cat abandoned there. Eways says she called Jon to ask about the kitten and he admitted as much.

Well, specifically, he said his ex-girlfriend Liz Jannetta (the one he appeared on Couples Therapy with, apparently without a lot of success) left it there.

According to earlier reports, Jon’s ex moved out in September, so the kitty was there for at least a few weeks with just Jon if our calendar is correct.

Eways says the sight of the poor kitten “broke [her] heart” so she decided to adopt it. In that sense, at least the animal has a loving home now.

But wow, Jon. We know times are tough, and being married to Kate Gosselin must have caused him major psychological damage … but come ON.

What would his kids think? What does anyone with a beating hard think?

Kris Humphries and Kim Kardashian

The marriage between Kris Humphries and Kim Kardashian lasted 72 days. Pretty much every second of it took place on reality TV.

Star reached out to Jon, who claims what the landlord says “isn’t completely true,” but wouldn’t elaborate. So that totally makes us view him more favorably.

Meanwhile, speaking of Kate, she’s having a yard sale soon and says that a portion of the proceeds will be donated to her local animal rescue league.

We can’t believe we’re saying this, but #TeamKate. Too bad the animal rescue group find a way to relocate Jon from himself. Clearly he needs it.

Also he needs a home BTW. Being broke and getting evicted and all.

Jon Gosselin: Broke! Evicted From Home!

Jon Gosselin is broke and was recently evicted from his home in rural Pennsylvania after failing to pay his rent on time, according to a new report.

“It’s true,” an insider says of recent talk that Jon’s landlord booted him.

“He was evicted last week and [he's] in the process of moving out.”

Jon: Smoked

Jon Gosselin, who’d been waiting tables to pay bills, was most recently working for a credit card company, but that job didn’t work out as planned.

“It lasted a few months,” the source says. “Now, he’s broke again.”

The insider claimed that much of Gosselin’s financial woes come from making poor decisions, but wouldn’t elaborate on the specifics of what those were.

Not that it’s hard to think up a bunch off the top of your head.

In a recent interview with Entertainment Tonight, he said it was “next to nearly impossible to find work” since his TLC reality show came to an end in 2011.

TLC is bringing back Kate Plus 8, sans Jon, this winter.

You might not think Gosselin’s eviction snag affects his eight kids, since Kate Gosselin is the one who supports them anyway, but where will they stay?

Lindsay Lohan

Lindsay Lohan used to make serious bank! But she spent it all on blow and had to have her move to New York bankrolled by Oprah Winfrey.

“He can see his kids,” the source says, as per the couple’s custody agreement, but now “they can’t stay over because he has nowhere to put them.”

Gonna be rough going for Jon for awhile it sounds like.

The former TLC reality star last appeared on VH1’s Couples Therapy with his then-girlfriend of two years, Liz Jannetta … who just broke up with him.

Says the source, “She moved.”

If you watch Couples Therapy online, you can see how last season, Gosselin ripped his “narcissistic” ex-wife who “can go and f–king die” for all he cares.

Wonder if he feels the same way about Liz now.

In any case, Jon’s future plans for finding a place to live are not clear, marking the latest turn for the worse in one of the more startling falls from grace we can recall.

Tori Spelling and Dean McDermott

Dean McDermott cheated on Tori Spelling with Emily Goodhand. The couple then talked with a therapist about it for episode of True Tori.

The Situation to Judge: I Can’t Make Arraignment Due to Marriage Boot Camp!

Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino asked judge to delay his federal tax fraud case because of a previous engagement, and you’re not going to believe what it is:

He’s shooting Marriage Boot Camp when he’s supposed to be arraigned!

The Situation: G-T-L

Seriously, The Situation’s lawyers begged a judge in a letter to postpone the reality star’s arraignment, since it conflicts with his reality TV career.

The former Jersey Shore star was scheduled to be arraigned October 6.

Before Mike Sorrentino got arrested for tax fraud, he and his fiancee (?!) had already signed a contract to do the show in L.A. from October 5-19.

The production company behind the series was concerned that Sitch would bail in the wake of his indictment, especially since the charges are no joke.

It turns out they have nothing to worry about. Thank GOODNESS.

Maybe the judge loves him some We TV programming, because the request was apparently granted and the arraignment pushed back to October 23.

Interesting, the network just announced the new cast members for Marriage Boot Camp: Reality Stars, which is set to premiere in early 2015.

The Situation is not in the press release, possibly because this situation had yet to be resolved, and you never know what might happen in court.

Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt, Aviva and Reid Drescher, Natalie Nunn and Jacob Payne, Tyson Apostol and Rachel Foulger and Syleena Johnson and Kiwane Garris will be there.

Maybe Situation and his girl. Sadly not Sammi and Ronnie.

Kate Gosselin: I Just Gotta Make a Living! Who Cares About Fame?!

Kate Gosselin acknowledges that there could be worse ways to make a living, but says that’s all she’s trying to do with the return of Kate Plus 8 to TV.

In other words, stop calling her a fame whore already!

That Kate Gosselin Look

Doesn’t it just make you a little bit ill? Yes, we thought so.

If there were another way to earn enough to feed those eight mouths, she says, “I would be on an island, and so would they. You would never hear from us again.”

Hmm. Anyone wanna start a Kickstarter page?!

All kidding aside, the return of Kate Plus 8 to TLC this winter, she says is “just my life and cameras are there … I understand this because I landed on TV somehow.”

“This is just part of that. I look at it as [my job] and the kids are with me,” she adds. “They run in and out of the frame, and we go to cool places sometimes.”

As for someone who might share those adventures with them?

“He needs to be made of titanium. Steel doesn’t cut it anymore. Yeah, sorry,” she shrugs of criteria she looks for in a man she might want to date?

Listening, Steve Neild? Taking notes somewhere, man?

Given the constant drama that surrounds her, be it custody fights or Kate Gosselin plastic surgery rumors, someone would need a strong spine indeed.

And a strong stomach, so as not to be physically ill.

Are Kate Gosselin and Steve Neild dating? We wouldn’t necessarily assume so … but we wouldn’t write off the possibility either.

It’s been quite the fall from grace for ol’ Jon and Kate.

They used to be one of the reasons to watch TV. Then they were one of the reasons to read gossip sites. Then they were so irritating, no one could take it anymore.

Fast forward a few years and he’s waiting tables to ends meet, still hating on her occasionally and you’ll be able to watch TV online and see her again soon.

The more things change, the more they stay the same.

Kate Gosselin and Steve Neild: Dating For Real?!

Are Kate Gosselin and Steve Neild together again, and not just professionally?

Just when it looked like the reality star and her bodyguard had parted ways, they were spotted together again, renewing speculation about the nature of their relationship.

Steve Neild and Kate Gosselin Photo

Longtime sidekick Steve Neild and Kate Gosselin parted ways recently, allegedly because his wife was not happy about the state of their working partnership.

Soon enough, though, the two reconciled and were seen again with her twin girls, Mady and Cara, then on a family vacation together with all eight kids.

Now a report claims that Neild, who has two grown kids, has his own room in Gosselin’s Pennsylvania home, where he “spends one week a month with Kate.”

Sound suspicious at all? How could it not?

“Kate acts like she and the children are one big happy family. She wants him to be the dad so badly,” a source close to the Gosselin family dished.

This rumor is very far from the first of its kind – not that we necessarily give credence to the supermarket tabloids that report 99 percent of this gossip.

Nevertheless, the Kate and Steve romance chatter has only intensified after they recently cut ties with each other, only to link back up in short order.

“People at TLC suspected that something was going on and warned Jon,” a source said, alleging that one of the children even caught Steve and Kate kissing.

“Steve actually got reassigned after that, but Kate argued and brought him back … [nevertheless] the kids think Kate and Steve’s relationship is gross.”

“They’ve even said to him, ‘You’re not my dad.’”

Ouch! The source concluded by saying Kate feels “protected and not alone” with Neild, and that “she likes having Steve around. Kate controls the situation.”

Okay, that last part we completely believe.

Kate Gosselin ‘Kate Plus 8′ Will Be Back!

Kate Gosselin Promotes New Book in BaltimoreDid you catch TLC’s ‘Kate Plus 8′ special last June? Well, enough people did that it apparently went over well. Another special is planned for December! Kate Gosselin will take her brood, which includes 13-year-old twins and 10-year-old sextuplets, to New England as part of a family vacation. RELATED: Watch Kate Gosselin in ‘Kate Plus 8: The Sextuplets Turn 10!’

The cameras are also reportedly catching their final days of summer before the new school year. I have to say, I’ve always thought that if parents had to have their kids on reality TV, the way Kate Gosselin does it is the way to go. The cameras follow them on special trips and excursions, not to private places like school. I remember reading that for family celebrations like birthday parties, they would hold two: one for the cameras and one privately. I think it’s a happy medium if kids are going to be on reality TV.

I know Kate gets a lot of flack for putting her kids on TV, but really, what is she supposed to do? If she went back to work as a nurse, working those 12-hour shifts, who would be with her kids? And how far would a nurse’s salary stretch in supporting EIGHT kids? Jon Gosselin has been a very vocal critic of having his kids on TV, but he can’t provide any financial support. Kate waived his requirement to pay child support in return for Jon signing an agreement that he couldn’t block the kids appearing on TV, according to Radar Online. If he doesn’t want his kids on TV, then he needs to get a job that enables him to contribute to their expenses. At least, that’s my opinion ;).

Are you interested in watching more ‘Kate Plus 8′?

Idris Elba Crushes Dreams of Women Everywhere, Shoots Down Giant Penis Rumors

Let’s be clear: Idris Elba may have a very large penis. It’s entirely possible.

But the veteran actor took to Twitter today to shoot down talk that photos of him on the set of a movie in London depict this sizable private part, after the following pictures went viral and had women everywhere in a tizzy.

  • Idris Elba Picture
  • Idris Elba Photo

“The good news is i got a sh*t load of followers. The bad news is, that is a mic wire,” Elba wrote.

The actor, best known for roles in The Wire and Luther, hilariously added the hashtag “#egowentintospaceshipmodethough.”

HA! Very well played, sir.

Credit to Elba for actually coming out and ending chatter over his junk. If only the following celebrities had done the same thing over the past few years, instead of going in the entirely opposite direction:

Brett Favre

Brett Favre didn’t just send another woman a photo of his penis in 2010. He did so while married… and the other woman was an employee of the team for whom he played.

Kate Gosselin Didn’t Write a Word of Book About Family, Co-Author Claims

Kate Gosselin headlined the author byline on the reality TV mom’s book Multiple Blessings, but Beth Carson says she in fact wrote it. Every single word.

Carson, Gosselin’s former close friend, admits it was Kate’s story – it’s her life with her sextuplets, of course – but insists she did 100 percent of the writing.

For a year. Only to watch Kate turn around and take the credit.

  • Kate Gosselin Can't Look

“Kate and I would sit around feeding our babies, and Kate would talk. I would take notes and made it into a book,” Carson told Radar of the cleverly-titled MULTIPLE BLES8INGS.

Because they have 8 kids! Jon & Kate Plus 8! GENIUS!

“I wrote the entire thing. Kate didn’t write one word of the book. I wanted to take nothing away from the fact that it was her story, but I put a lot of work into it.”

Which was fine, until it was time to promote the book, and Kate shunned her.

“That was sort of the last straw, it was a smack in the face,” said Carson, who says she pratially blames TV audiences for creating this monster.

Still … the woman was the absolute worst for effing her over so hard.

“That process wasn’t hard,” Kate said in an interview at the time, of authoring the book. “It was the time to write the book. It took us a year and a half.”

“I started when the little kids were two and to re-live all of those things that we had been through was probably the most difficult part. As far as the book went, that was easy.”

Even worse than that? Jon being listed as co-author, when he did nothing.

“I didn’t know that Jon was even on the book until it was published and Kate tried diligently to get my name removed,” Carson reveals years later.

Not surprisingly, this marked the end of their friendship.

“Kate tried very, VERY hard to get my name off everything and take my cut,” she says, adding to the list of stories about Kate being a greedy, fame-hungry child abuser.

“It’s just too bad that Kate’s thirst for the limelight was so strong,” Carson added, leaving us wondering how the woman ever had any friends or a husband.

At least Gosselin and Steve Neild are back together.

Kate Gosselin, Twins

Kate Gosselin is the mother of many kids. But she always put her financial and famous interests about theirs it seems.

Terminator Reboot Title Released, Exceptionally Lame

Shooting on the Arnold Schwarzenegger-starring reboot of Terminator has wrapped.

But the Internet is now asking: Is it too late to reboot the movie’s title?!?

The former California Governor released a photo on Instagram today that reveals the name of the fifth film in this franchise, while also mentioning it in an accompanying caption.

Terminator Genisys Photo

“Hasta la vista, baby. I want to thank the cast and crew of @TerminatorGenisys for a fantastic shoot,” Schwarzenegger wrote.

Yes, the movie will apparently be titled Terminator Genisys.

We can only assume this is a reference to a company in the story and not a tragic misspelling.

It was challenging, it was fun, and it was rewarding,” Schwarzenegger added. “From our director to the producers, from the camera team to catering, from visual effects to hair and makeup – we couldn’t have done it without you.

“I can’t wait to see our finished project and I know we’ll remind the fans why they fell in love with the Terminator. On July 1, 2015, I’ll be back.”

Alan Taylor will direct the upcoming blockbuster, which also stars Emilia Clarke, Jai Courtney, Jason Clarke, J.K. Simmons and Matt Smith.

Schwarzenegger, of course, will reprise his iconic role of a machine in the film.
