Tom Brady: Caught Lying About Floyd Mayweather Friendship?

As expected, Floyd Mayweather defeated Conor McGregor Saturday night in a fight that was far more entertaining than it had any right to be.

Of course, now that his career in the ring is over, Mayweather will likely spend the rest of his days engaged in the other kind of battle he’s become famous for.

No, we’re not talking about the many incidents of spousal abuse he’s been arrested for over the years.

We’re talking about the odd, passive-aggressive verbal sparring between Floyd and random celebrities that seems to take up much of the boxer’s time.

The most high-profile example in the past year saw Floyd getting dissed by former friend Justin Bieber, who decided to cut ties with the Money Man as a result of Mayweather’s ungodly ways.

(Strip clubs and Moet don’t jibe with the Biebs’ newly Bible-thumping lifestyle.)

Now, Floyd is in a tift with another talented, but widely-despised pretty boy.

And amazingly, he’s found a frenemy who might be even more universally-disliked than Bieber.

Asked about his celebrity friends in a recent interview, Mayweather stated that he and Tom Brady are pretty much besties.

“That’s a close friend of mine. Tom Brady is a very, very close friend,” Mayweather said.

“An unbelievable guy with unbelievable talent…he’s a great guy. Actually, Tom Brady texted me yesterday.”

In case you didn’t get the point that he and Tom are bros for life, Mayweather continued:

“We have a cool friendship. He texted me and asked me ‘How’s everything going?’ And I texted him back: ‘Everything is cool, how you doing? How’s the family?’ And he said, ‘Everything is going A-OK.'”

Wow, sounds like they’re pretty tight.

Unless, of course, you ask Tom Brady about his supposed BFF.

Fortunately, that’s just what a pair of Boston radio hosts did this week, and the results were hilariously awkward.

After repeating that he’s only met Floyd “a couple of times,” Brady responded with a curt “no” when asked if he and Mayweather are friends.

“No, I met him a couple of times,” Brady said, clearly dying to move on to a new topic.

“I think he’s a great fighter. That was a great fight the other night.”

We hate to side with Floyd on … well, on anything, really, but Mayweather is probably telling the truth here.

TMZ is reporting that Floyd was spotted video conferencing with Brady during a press conference just before his fight with McGregor.

For boxers, every fight is one of the biggest days of their life, so if they’re video chatting with you the night before, you’re probably more than just some dude they met a couple times.

In all likelihood, the Patriots QB is just trying to manage his public image after the debacle that ensued last summer when the world learned that Brady and Donald Trump are friends.

Anyone who watched the Deflategate press conference knows old Tom Terrific isn’t the most media-savvy guy on the planet but watching that guy who used to make inappropriate comments about your wife at cocktail parties become the most powerful man in the world is enough to teach anyone a lesson.

The Real Housewives of New York Season 9 Episode 22 Recap: Did Bethenny Frankel Forgive Ramona Singer?!?

Did Bethenny find it in her heart to make up with New York’s biggest pot stirrer?

That was the big question on The Real Housewives of New York Season 9 Episode 22 as the ladies met up for part three of the big reunion. 

Bethenny was quick to point out that Ramona was the root of all evil amongst their friend group and recalled a moment Ramona turned to her daughter and asked about a home video she had filmed several years ago. 

Yeah, who asks their friend’s kid about THAT? Ramona has long been the master of drawing a line and doing a cartwheel over it, but that was just too far. 

“I didn’t come from a place of meanness,” Ramona countered.

“It’s about my daughter, and it’s about the maliciousness,” Bethenny said.

“You’ve been disgusting to me.”

Ramona did not want to be part of the narrative (thanks for that one, Taylor!) and implied that she was not the one in the wrong. 

“What did I do to you, ever?” Bethenny asked.  

In true Ramona fashion, she tried to deflect all of it and did not give a solid answer. That was enough for Bethenny to label her as a jealous old hag. Well, she never said it in those exact words, but clearly wanted to. 

“Ramona’s sold a couple of handfuls of bottles of wine over the last couple of years,” Bethenny snapped. “You can’t be happy for other people.”

In the end, Bethenny tried to cover her bases so people would not turn on her.

“I don’t not like you,” Bethenny said.

Is there hope for them yet? Stay tuned, we guess. 

We then switched things up to the trials and tribulations of Tinsley and Sonja who have been at war for weeks. 

Despite Tinsley being labeled a bad houseguest, the attention quickly turned to whether Sonja had been selling her friends out to the press. 

Sonja denied it, but nobody believed it. We’re not even sure Sonja even believed it, to be honest. 

“I will be forever grateful,” Tinsley said of staying with Sonja.

“I’m sorry I wasn’t the perfect houseguest. I’m sorry I didn’t get you coffee and flowers.” That was clearly a dig at Ramona who caused seven hells when she dragged Tinsley for not being nice to her host. 

Luann then opened up about just how much she loved Tom, and that is pissed her off the ladies could not shut the eff up about him. 

“I love him, and so it was tough,” Luann said. Yeah, she’s probably cringing right about now. This episode was filmed just weeks before the divorce announcement. 

Dorinda said the rose of her season was getting rid of her daughter so she could live her own life, while the thorn was definitely her random feud with Bethenny. 

Tinsley’s was making friends in New York again and finding a man who likes her for her, while her thorn was her feud with Sonja. 

Sonja said that her rose was getting closer to Dorinda while her thorn was wasting too much time on Tinsley’s flaws. 

Bethenny’s favorite moments involved her being naked in the pool, and the thorn was all the crap Jason Hoppy put her through to get to that point. 

Okay, what did you think of this crazy reunion?

Sound off below!

90 Day Fiance Tell All: Here’s What to Expect!

90 Day Fiance: Happily Ever After? is right to put that question mark at the end of their name. No couple is guaranteed happiness, but especially not those who — through legal constraints — only have a few months to get to know each other before they marry.

The second part of the explosive Tell All segment will air this Sunday, and we have the big dramatic moment from the first segment for you below.

We can also tell you a little about what's coming on Sunday. For one thing, it looks like the conflict between Paola and Russ isn't quite resolved. Oh, and everybody says exactly what they think about Anfisa Arkhipchenko.

So, let's just make sure that everybody's up to speed.

Paola Mayfield and Russ usually seem happy together. This is especially true when you compare them to their costars. 

But Paola is a model, while Russ is from Oklahoma and holds conservative views and is sometimes uncomfortable with his wife wearing underwear on camera.

On camera, Paola Mayfield wore lingerie for a job against Russ' wishes, which has been a sore point for him ever since.

Anfisa Arkhipchenko and Jorge Nava met over Instagram because Anfisa is a model and Jorge fell for her immediately.

When Anfisa came over to the US and found out that Jorge was no longer as well off as he had been and was in fact in debt, she didn't take it so well.

Also, Anfisa once hit Jorge on camera. That takes the toxicity of their relationship to another level.

They separated, though it was over a confrontation between Anfisa and Jorge's sister.

Danielle Mullins and Mohamed Jbali only had sex once, to consummate their marriage.

After that, Danielle constantly accused Mohamed of cheating on her. 

Eventually, the two of them parted ways. Not only are they no longer married, but Mohamed Jbali temporarily left the country

(Not because of Danielle's repeated attempts to get him deported, however)

He's back, though.

So, for the first segment of the big Tell All, the most dramatic moment was the confrontation between Russ and Paola while on the couch.

The two are posed cuddling because that's how you sit when you're reality stars who are a couple on a show about your relationship.

But, as you can see in the clip below, as Paola responds to questions and begins to express her frustrations with feeling torn between her career and her husband, Russ makes things worse.

Russ seems to insult Paola's career, suggesting that she doesn't get that many job offers in the first place so she can't possibly be turning that many down on his behalf.

The way that he gets upset about her career is, honestly, a huge red flag. There are plenty of models — for that matter, plenty of sex workers, from strippers to porn stars to those who engage in prostitution — who have loving and supportive partners.

And then there's Russ Mayfield, who seems unable to deal with the thought of her wearing lingerie outside of their bedroom. It's not cute; it's controlling and alarming.

But to see him insult her like that on camera, in such a snappy voice (many fans of the series have described Russ as "whiny" and that's accurate) makes for some difficult viewing.

Paola has enough and storms out, which seems to only make Russ more irritated. It seems sometimes that he doesn't care about her feelings, but maybe he'll wise up.

The official description of this Sunday's episode includes:

"At the end of Part 1 of the tell all, Russ and Pao’s emotional confrontation over her wearing lingerie for a music video led to her storming off set. The fight continues backstage as they hash out their differences over Pao’s career choices."

Good luck.

As for Anfisa and Jorge, it looks like their time to shine … or whatever … is coming on Sunday's Tell All.

Anfisa's desire to be treated like a princess and Jorge's inability to spoil her has been a major point of contention between the two of them.

From what The Wrap has learned about Sunday's episode, Jorge Nava is confronted by Loren Brovarnik about everything in his relationship with Anfisa.

It sounds like the intervention that Jorge has needed for a long time.

Loren demands to know if Anfisa loves Jorge if she just fell in love with his money.

"There is no way that you can look at them and say that they were truly in love," Loren tells the camera.

Loren then describes Anfisa as fake, saying that she looks at her and just sees "a bunch of Botox."

Jorge describes how he felt a connection to Anfisa, and defends their relationship as it began:

"When I had money, everything was cool."

This issue is personal for Loren, as she and her husband Alexei struggled to acquire his Green Card. Loren laments that Alex was denied a Green Card twice, while Anfisa got hers within just two months.

"That's not fair," Loren says, arguing that couples who truly love each other should be allowed to be together.

She's not wrong.

For what it's worth, during that intervention, Paola and Russ seem to look on with amusement.

So maybe the two of them finally manage to work past their issues.

Paola even seems to pitch in, asking if Anfisa is a mail-order bride and then assuring Jorge that Anfisa isn't even all that pretty.

It sounds like Paola thinks that he could do better. 

That's probably something that he needs to hear.

Here is the video of Paola and Russ' heated exchange and Paola storming off:

Tom D’Agostino: Already Dating After Split from Luann de Lesseps!

Luann de Lesseps and Tom D’Agostino are divorcing. Officially. After their short, short marriage, they’re not trying a trial separation but just ripping off the bandaid.

It’s such a sorry situation for Luann that even Bethenny Frankel feels sorry for her. And Bethenny Frankel isn’t exactly what you’d call a bleeding heart.

Apparently, things aren’t so hard on Tom D’Agostino. And, to absolutely no one’s surprise, Tom is reportedly already back to dating.

Hey, so, remember when Tom D’Agostino spoke to Us Weekly and told them that he and Luann had a lot of love between them and had no plans to split?

Well … we don’t want to be mean and say womp womp, but that sure didn’t last.

As it turns out, cheating on your fiance right before your engagement party doesn’t usually spell success for your marriage.

Basically everyone had warned Luann, but if she was a fool to marry Tom, then she was a fool who wanted to believe that love could conquer all obstacles and overcome any issues in their relationship.

There are worse dumb things to believe.

Overall, it seemed, Tom D’Agostino just had a wandering eye, and wandering other parts, and wasn’t going to let a little thing like marriage to a beautiful celebrity like Luann hold him back.

(It sounds like he might have some impulse-control issues, with a severe case of basically being immune to consequences and the entitlement that comes with that)

So, given that he was reportedly getting around during his engagement and marriage to Luann, it’s not really a shock to hear that he’s already back to dating openly.

Us Weekly reports that Tom D’Agostino is 

“Tom has been seeing a few of the women in his life, including Missy, but hasn’t rebounded with anyone in particular yet.”

That’s a reference to his ex-girlfriend, Missy Tool.

Us Weekly says that another source insists that Missy and Tom are “just friends.”

Overall, though, that sounds pretty consistent with Tom, though we’d point out that seeing a bunch of different women is fine … when you’re single.

As he is no0w.

The first source has more to add.

“He didn’t want to do any interviews until he sees Luann’s sit-down with Andy to see if she bad-mouths him. Tom is really trying to take the high road with the divorce.”

Tom and Luann filed jointly for divorce, so it makes sense for them to try to be amicable.

There was a rumor floating around towards the end of their marriage …

(Though the eight-month marriage was so brief that any part of it could also be said to be “right at the beginning”)

… That Luann had struck Tom, slapping him in a restaurant. That sounded a lot like domestic violence.

When asked about it, Luann had stated that she had grabbed his face during their conversation. That’s not okay either, but a lot less alarming.

Tom’s rumored cheating plagued their relationship almost from the beginning, to the point where it became a storyline on The Real Housewives of New York City.

Tom is said to have grown tired of his newfound spotlight and celebrity status that came with marrying a Real Housewife, though … many imagine that the true impetus behind the divorce was the cheating.

We wonder if Tom has ever considered that he should be in an open relationship?

If he wants the affection and stability of a committed partner but also wants to be free to hook up with different women, that’s totally possible.

Polyamorous relationships can take a lot of forms, and the simplest of them is a couple that’s in an open relationship where both partners love and support each other but also know that they don’t need to sneak around if they hook up with a coworker or friend or a stranger in a bar.

Of course, for some people, it’s not that they just don’t like exclusivity — there are people who get a thrill from cheating and prefer things that way. That is something very different.

Honestly, we just want Luann and Tom to be able to move on and live their best lives.

And not repeat past mistakes.

Leah Messer Opens Up About Struggles With Drug-Addicted Father

Leah Messer has suffered more than her share of hardships during her time on Teen Mom 2.

Of course, all of her struggles took place under the glaring spotlight of reality television, which means that her biggest failures were likely compounded by intense feelings of embarrassment.

Leah seems to have felt that humiliation most acutely in the days when she was struggling with an addiction to prescription painkillers.

At what may have been her low point, Messer nodded off while holding a small child.

Leah has consistently refused to publicly acknowledge that she struggled with addiction, and the reason for that is likely the stigma that continues to surround substance dependency in America.

Sadly, Leah is far from alone in what is no doubt an ongoing struggle, and for a reminder of just how pervasive an issue addiction truly is, she doesn’t need to look beyond her own family.

As she’s stated in the past, Leah’s father is an addict, and she’s been open about her decision to cut ties with him as a result of his issues.

She’s reportedly gone years without any communication with her father, but he still reaches out to her from time to time.

His most recent attempt at a reconciliation apparently came yesterday.

Leah tweeted about the ordeal to her 1.4 million followers, revealing that she couldn’t bring herself to answer her father’s phone call.

“When your dad calls and you haven’t heard from him in quite some time,” she tweeted.

“Do you answer or let your voicemail do the talking?”

By way of explaining her refusal to pick up the phone, Leah continued:

“It’s the same thing every call. Maybe this time he really is going to choose life over death. All I can do is [pray].”

So we assume that the elder Messer only calls his daughter when he’s looking to borrow money.

If that’s the case, then Leah’s situation is even sadder than we thought, and her decision to cut ties with her fsther is imminently understandable.

But if his situation provided her with the inspiration to sober up for her kids, then at least there’s a silver lining to this incredibly dark cloud.

Watch Teen Mom 2 online for more of Leah’s many ups and downs.

Ami Brown Birthday Tributes Pour Forth Amidst Cancer Battle

Ami Brown is so far from alone.

The Alaskan Bush People star is battling stage four lung cancer and the prognosis from doctors is grave.

But the mother of seven can at least take comfort in knowing she’s surrounded by friends, family members, loved ones… and an endless array of fans.

brown bday

With the Discovery Channel personality celebrating a birthday this week, supporters from all corners of the Internet have come together to send Ami their very best wishes.

“Happy birthday to the matriarch of the Brown family and the glue that holds them together!” reads the caption to the Facebook photo above.

It has been Liked over 28,000 times.

Wrote another user of the World Wide Web:

“Happy birthday Ami, a beautiful woman inside and out. We pray you have a very blessed day surrounded by your loved ones.

“Sending our love and prayers! Continue to look up, that’s where our hope comes from.”

Brown recently spoke to People Magazine about her illness, telling the publication that “everything hurts” and adding:

“I realized early into this that it’s very easy to want to give up and just die. And on the pessimist side, it could be my last days.

“But I have the will to fight.”

It’s this brave and strong attitude that has endeared Brown to so many viewers over the years.

“Happy Birthday Ami, Praying fo you to have GREAT results from your treatments,” wrote another followers, adding that she can relate to Ami’s pain:

“I am a two time cancer survivor and wish you ALL the Best, LOVE You and your Family and show.”

And one more fan note:

“If prayers alone would heal cancer, you would be healed.

“You are a wonderful Mother, Wife and Role Model. You have raised a fine and loving family. You are a strong woman and have blessed our lives just by your inspiration.

“GOD Bless you and your family always.”

Billy Brown also spoke to People this month about the state of his wife, saying he almost never leaves her side and marveling over the courage his wife has displayed.

“She’s the strongest person I know, so if she’s saying it hurts, it really hurts. She tries to hide it from everybody but four or five times a day she bends over like a baby and cries.

“She bends over and tears run down. She put out seven babies without a grunt. I’ve always had a lot of respect for Ami, but I’ve got a lot more now.

“She makes me feel like a wuss.”

Based on her type of cancer, Brown has only been given a long-term survival rate of three percent.

As we said above, the outlook is grim. 

However, as long as Ami is alive and fighting, we’ll maintain hope.

We join these fans in sending birthday wishes to the reality star and we hope we can do the same next year at this time.

Hang in there, Ami.

Jana Duggar: Wedding Dress Shopping!! (For Joe & Kendra)

Jana Duggar is forever a bridesmaid, never a bride … and boy will she have a lot of bridesmaid dresses by the time all is said and done.

The next member of the Duggar family to tie the knot will presumably be Joseph, who is eyeing this fall for his wedding to Kendra Caldwell.

Just minutes after Joy-Anna Duggar and Austin Forsyth’s wedding, Joseph popped the question to Kendra to become next in line.

Previously, Joe bumped out Jedidiah Duggar – his own brother – to make a move on Kendra, but that’s neither here nor there right now.

In any case, they’re looking into October for their wedding date, and naturally, they’ve enlisted Jana Duggar to help with the preparations.

You’d think that between doing Michelle’s housework, taking care of her siblings and Jana raising Josh Duggar’s kids, she’d have a full plate.

Might as well pile more on though, right? She lives for this!

Jana and her twin, John David Duggar, accompanied the future newlyweds to Kentucky to score a dress for Kendra’s monumetal occasion.

Jana, John David (their personal pilot) and their mother Michelle Duggar all joined in to help a girl out, and pose with some fans of course.

The eldest daughter of Michelle and Jim Bob, 27-year-old Jana has never been engaged, despite being engaged in all the family activities.

Recent rumors of Jana Duggar courting a family friend got the fan base all kinds of fired up, but both families actually shot that one down.

You know Jana’s love life is a topic of great interest when people actually go on record talking about it. That’s not likely to change, either.

Just because she’s single doesn’t mean it’s for lack of interest, and the fact that Jana has rejected multiple men simply adds to the mystery.

For now, though, she’s back in a familiar spot.

You can expect Kendra’s wedding dress shopping will be front and center when you watch Counting On online this fall on TLC.

Jana, a fan favorite, obviously doesn’t have a wedding of her own to plan, or a relationship to devote time to, so she’ll be there.

Fans were happy to see her on social media.

“Jana is beautiful,” one fan said beneath the photo above. “She always looks great. John David looks more out [sic] together than usual.”

Another wrote, “Jana knows how to dress.”

Yes. Yes she does. And to bite her tongue. One can only imagine what she must be feeling given her role in this famous family and in life.

As always, she will assume her usual place on the back burner for the most part as Joseph and Kendra prepare to tie the knot.

“We are super excited,” the couple said to People earlier this summer. “It’s great to not be courting anymore, now we’re engaged!”

Joseph described his proposal thusly:

“I was definitely nervous going into it, but I wasn’t afraid that she was going to say no, because she has said, ‘I’m just waiting on you!’”

Many members of Duggar Nation also thought they might receive news of a Joy-Anna or Jinger pregnancy on the September 11 premiere.

So much for that. Joy-Anna is pregnant with her first child, she announced yesterday, just three months after marrying Austin Forsyth.

With Jessa and Jill both welcoming their second kids within the past year, there will be no shortage of storylines for producers this fall.

Poor Jana.
