Vinny Guadagnino Clashes With Ex Over Cheating Allegations!

If you’ve been watching Jersey Shore Family Vacation, then you know that the most recent episode was a tough one for fan favorite Vinny Guadagnino.

Though Vin didn’t cross the line in the same way as Ronnie and his French Fry, the incident captured by MTV cameras clearly didn’t sit well Vin’s then-girlfriend, Elicea Shyann.

Not only did Shyann make her displeasure with Vinny very clear in one of the most uncomfortable duck phone conversations to date, the relationship came to an end shortly after filming wrapped.

But that doesn’t mean either party is finished hashing out the details of Vinny’s betrayal:

Earlier this week, Shyann posted a lengthy Instagram tirade in which she slammed Jersey Shore fans who have found tremendous entertainment in watching her relationship crumble:

“Here’s some free promotion!!!! for the trash everyone loves to watch. I’m a real f—king person who wakes up DAILY to more and more bullsh-t and heartache,” Shyann wrote.

“Enjoy the f-cking show that is my f-cking life. Ppl wonder how ppl end up in the darkest places. Here’s your answer.”

“Humiliation disrespect zero empathy lol it’s truly AMAZING,” Shyann continued in her since-deleted Instagram posts.

“Everyone lives for the drama watching good things go to sh-t.”

Not surprisingly, Shyann’s outrage led to fans putting Vinny on blast on Twitter.

And the Keto Guido was clearly not in the mood for accepting constructive criticism:

“Dude, don’t you know? Talking to bottle girls in a nightclub is cheating duh,” he sarcastically tweeted.

“Forget the guys who have side pieces, cheat on their wives, text, and f–k girls … you’re nice to [a] waitress you cheat.”

“No no I’m a monster. I really shouldn’t have been secure in my relationship enough to go out, be nice to people, be fun and entertaining and still remain loyal,” Guadagnino continued.

“I gave compliments to bottle girls on tv so I’m the worst man alive! Get it right.”

After a fan accused Vinny of saving a waitress’ number in his phone, the reality star defended himself by pointing out a meaningless distinction about the device he was using that night:

“Yep… I can give other girls drunk compliments and still love and be loyal to my girl,” he tweeted.

“And that wasn’t my phone it was the house iTouch (we don’t have phones) so that we can all turn up again as a group. (While still remaining loyal)<- impossible right ?!”

Oh, well in that case …

Vin ended his tirade on a Trumpian note, slamming the purveyors of fake news for alleging that he colluded with foreign strippers:

“Aight I gotta get off Twitter. It’s been fun,” he wrote.

“Thanks and respect to the people who understand the diff between crossing lines and CHEATING. Context and editing. And to the trolls and Fake News. Keep trollin. You are great people!”

Ah, “context and editing.”

The refrain of the reality star who’s not proud of his actions.

One would think that by now, Vinny would be so accustomed to dealing with online criticism that he wouldn’t let it bother him so much.

We guess it stings more than usual when one of those critics is the ex-girlfriend you disrespected on TV.

Kathryn Dennis Responds to Thomas Ravenel Rape Allegations

Southern Charm star Thomas Ravenel is accused of sexually assaulting two different women, including his former nanny, who shared the details of her harrowing story.

Now, his ex and another costar are speaking up — but fans aren’t happy with what they have to say. They don’t like Bravo’s response, either.

And as more and more viewers discuss the possibility of a boycott, another woman has come forward about a scary encounter.

Kathryn Dennis spoke to Andy Cohen on Watch What Happens Live, and she had very little to say about her ex-boyfriend who is also the father of her two young children.

“Well, I’m waiting until the investigation is complete before I comment on anything, and right now my kids are my focus.”

Kathryn does share two children with her ex, so fans can understand that this is a touchy subject.

Craig Conover was also less than eager to weigh in.

“Yeah, all I know is what I see in the media so it really wouldn’t be right for me to say anything at this point. I’m aware – everyone else is.”

Most of the interview that the two had was about much lighter topics.

As it turns out, there’s a reason for that.

Kathryn Dennis on WWHL

According to Will Folks of Fitnews, there’s a reason that these two don’t seem to have much to say.

“We’re told hefty fines and possible termination have been threatened against any Southern Charmers who talk out of school about the case.”

It looks like they’re avoiding talking in more situations than just talk show interviews with the head of their network.

“Meanwhile, law enforcement sources familiar with Bravo’s response to the scandal have described encountering ‘resistance’ from cast members as they attempt to get to the bottom of the allegations.”

That, folks, is alarming.

Whatever anyone thinks about Ravenel’s innocense or guilt, Charleston police are investigating the man for multiple accusations of rape.

Directions from a network do not outweigh a criminal investigation.

We certainly hope that no one has been instructed to obstruct justice, and that no one has interpreted an internal gag order as an instruction to obstruct justice.

In the mean time, there are reports that advertisers are very quietly pulling their support for Southern Charm.

As the Ravenel case heats up, it’s likely that they want to avoid being named in boycotts. Media purchasers have shared on social media that they’ve had clients who are backing out of the show.

At the same time, fans of Southern Charm and other shows have been slamming Ravenel — and slamming Bravo for what they see as an effort to avoid the subject and possibly protect an accused predator.

“Every single week on #SouthernCharm, Thomas Ravenel says something deeply misogynistic. It’s clear that he has no real respect for women.”

Fans are not having a difficult time reconciling Ravenel’s public image with the accusations against him.

“I’m a die hard @Bravotv fan, but @Andy & Bravo’s silence on Thomas Ravenel’s sexual assault charges speaks volumes #boycottsoutherncharm”

The word “boycott” is coming up a lot.

“Thomas Ravenel is under investigation for sexual assault. Sadly, I’m not surprised. He’s a disgusting man.”

And fans point out on social media that other networks are (slowly but surely) getting with the program and kicking accused monsters to the curb.

“Networks, Cable, Netflix, Amazon, Movies all fire or suspend the accused. Except #Bravo. #Bravo remains silent and, it appears, in support of the accused.”

Luzanne Otte

Yet another woman has come forward to put Thomas Ravenel on blast. This time, it’s a childhood friend of Kim Kardashian’s.

Luzanne Otte describes how she had a fling with the star and found him to be, well, a charming southern gentleman … at first.

After one week, she says, they came home from a pleasant dinner and she found him coming up the stairs, hurling verbal abuse in her direction.

She says that the sudden behavioral twist seemed to come out of nowhere, and that she feared that if she said or did the wrong thing at that time, that he would become physically violent.

Speaking to The Daily Mail, Otte was unwilling to say whether he became physical during the encounter.

She does say that it was frightening, and that though he calmed down and apologized, no one has the right to treat anyone that way.

Seven months later, she says, Ravenel and his current girlfriend, Ashley Jacobs, began cyberbullying her.

Otte says that she has faced threats and had to obtain a cease and desist order against Ravenel and Jacobs.

Luzanne Otte’s story of her scary encounter with Ravenel and the aftermath of it are not as frightening as the accusations of rape that the police are investigating.

But, like his history of misogynistic comments on Southern Charm, a number of fans consider it as a … character reference.

Fans are clearly disappointed to perceive that Bravo is circling the wagons around one of their stars.

Ratings for Southern Charm are good, and Ravenel is undoubtedly a part of that. But that should not excuse anyone from a criminal investigation.

CBS Responds to Pauley Perrette Assault Allegations

Pauley Perrette may be out of NCIS.

But the actress is not out of the news.

Far from it, in fact.

The veteran series regular bid farewell to television’s highest-rated drama eight days ago, but she’s been making headlines ever since for a series of cryptic Tweets.

Cryptic and disturbing Tweets, we should say.

“I refused to go low, that’s why I’ve never told publicly what happened,” Perrette wrote over last weekend, adding mysteriously:

“But there are tabloid articles out there that are telling total lies about me. If you believe them? Please leave me alone. You clearly don’t know me. (Sorry guys, had to be said).”

Perrette announced in October that she was leaving NCIS, on which she had starred as forensic specialist Abby Sciuto since the very first episode.

She said she made the decision a year earlier, but didn’t mention anything at this time about trouble on set.

On May 13, however, she continued her troubling Twitter posting as follows:

There is a “machine’ keeping me silent, and feeding FALSE stories about me. A very rich, very powerful publicity “machine”.

No morals, no obligation to truth, and I’m just left here, reading the lies, trying to protect my crew. Trying to remain calm. He did it.

She then really caught the attention of outlets everywhere by alleging that bullying and/or some kind of physical abuse has taken place on set:

I’ve been supporting ant-bullying programs forever. But now I KNOW because it was ME! If it’s school or work, that you’re required to go to? It’s horrifying. I left. Multiple Physical Assaults.

I REALLY get it now. Stay safe. Nothing is worth your safety. Tell someone.

many pauley tweets

Sort of crazy, right?

NCIS just wrapped up Season 15, has been renewed for Season 16 and there’s been little to no talk at all over the years about these sort of allegations.

In response, however, CBS has acknowledged that Perrette did go to producers or higher-ups with at least one complaint in early 2017 or in 2016.

“Over a year ago, Pauley came to us with a workplace concern,” the network said in a statement to Variety on Tuesday, adding:

“We took the matter seriously and worked with her to find a resolution. We are committed to a safe work environment on all our shows.”

That’s a rather broad and vague reply, but it seems to have satisfied Perrette.

“I want to thank my studio and network CBS They have always been so good to me and always had my back,” she Tweeted after reading the statement above.

We reported yesterday that tension has existed between Perrette and lead star Mark Harmon for about two years now.

The latter apparently brought in his rescue dog in 2016, only for him to bite a crew member.

Harmon felt terrible and kept the canine away from the set for awhile… until, down the line, it had been properly trained and he could not find a dog-sitter.

Sources told Radar Online that Perrette was the only person affiliated with the show who took issue with the re-emergence of this dog and that she has held it against Harmon ever since.

It’s worth emphasizing, however, that this tiff is NOT what Perrette has been referencing with her “assault” claims.

Chris Lopez Responds to Kailyn Lowry Abuse Allegations

Even though he's never appeared on the show, Chris Lopez is not a particularly beloved figure among Teen Mom 2 fans.

Lopez briefly dated Kailyn Lowry last year, and he's the father of her youngest son, Lux.

Unfortunately, Chris has made it abundantly clear that he wants nothing to do with either Kail or the show that made her famous.

By most accounts, Lopez is something of a jerk, but until recently we thought he was simply a bad boyfriend who became a deadbeat dad.

Now, Briana DeJesus has leveled a much more serious allegation at Lopez, and some fans might not be satisfied by his response …

1. Instagram Dad

Chris and Kal have had a contentious relationship since well before Lux was born. These days, he posts lots of pics of himself and his son, but Kail says it’s all for show and accuses him of being an “Instagram dad.”

2. Back and Forth

Chris lopez burns kailyns book
She says he’s barely a part of Lux’s life at all, and he usually responds with pettiness like this. Yes, that’s a photo of Chris burning a copy of Kail’s memoir.

3. Lux Life

Needless to say, the former couple has failed to form the amicable co-parenting relationship that Kail had hoped for. And now it looks as though the situation might be far worse than we initially thought …

4. Always a Source of Drama

Briana is psyched
The latest uproar surrounding Lopez is the result of a bizarre comment that Kail’s longtime rival, Briana DeJesus, made on Instagram.

5. Not Holding Back

Briana drama
When a fan accused Briana of trash-talking Kail in front of her kids, DeJesus replied, “I wasn’t talking s–t and shut the f–k up cause she gets beat the f–k up by Chris in front of her kids, goodbye.”

6. Chris Responds

Needless to say, Chris was not happy with the accusation leveled by Briana, and he wasted no time in responding.

Matt Lauer Responds to New Sexual Assault Allegations

Matt Lauer has spoken out for the first time in five months.

The disgraced former Today Show host has issued a new statement in light of new and very troubling allegations leveled against him.

“I have made no public comments on the many false stories from anonymous or biased sources that have been reported about me over these past several months” Lauer told The Washington Post last night, adding:

“I remained silent in an attempt to protect my family from further embarrassment and to restore a small degree of the privacy they have lost.”

He continued:

“But defending my family now requires me to speak up. I fully acknowledge that I acted inappropriately as a husband, father and principal at NBC.

“However I want to make it perfectly clear that any allegations or reports of coercive, aggressive or abusive actions on my part, at any time, are absolutely false.”

A few months ago, Lauer was accused of rape.

A former NBC staffer said the embattled reporter locked the door to his office when she was inside of it and then forced himself on her.

But that alleged incident is actually not what Lauer is responding to here.

Instead, he has broken his lengthy silence after ex-colleague and co-host Ann Curry told The Post this week that she approached by two members of NBC’s management team in 2012 after an female staffer told Curry that she was “sexually harassed physically” by Lauer.

This is what Curry told the newspaper:

“A woman approached me and asked me tearfully if I could help her. She was afraid of losing her job. … I believed her.”

Added Curry in this new interview:

“I told management they had a problem and they needed to keep an eye on him and how he deals with women.”

It wasn’t until this past November, however, that Lauer was fired for sexual misconduct.

NBC management said at the time that it had received a believable report from an employee at the network in regard to Lauer’s behavior…

…and that it had reasons to believe many other incidents involving Lauer had also taken place.

Curry left NBC in 2015, much to the chagrin of pretty much anyone who ever watched her on air.

It was evident that she did not get along with Lauer, although she mostly took the high road when asked about him in January.

“I can tell you that I am not surprised by the allegations,” the veteran journalist said very simply in response to the Lauer scandal.

In this instance, though, Curry emphasized that she was familiar with verbal harassment examples.

A few days after Lauer was fired, he released the following statement:

There are no words to express my sorrow and regret for the pain I have caused others by words and action.

To the people I have hurt, I am truly sorry. As I am writing this, I realize the depth of the damage and disappointment I have left behind at home and at NBC.

Some of what is being said about me is untrue or mischaracterized, but there is enough truth in these stories to make me feel embarrassed and ashamed.

I regret that my shame is now shared by the people I cherish dearly

Repairing the damage will take a lot of time and soul searching, and I’m committed to beginning that effort. It is now my full-time job. The last two days have forced me to take a very hard look at my own troubling flaws.

It’s been humbling. I am blessed to be surrounded by people I love.

I thank them for their patience and grace.

There’s been talk of late, however, of Lauer trying to mount some kind of comeback.

We presume this is why Curry has come forward with a new round of accusations against him.

Good for her.

He sucks.

He deserves no more chances.
