American Horror Story Recap: Return to Murder House

American Horror Story was all about giving fans what they wanted on Wednesday night.

By that, we mean there was a return trip to the Murder House from American Horror Story Season 1 as Madison and Behold continued their mission to find out everything they could about Michael Langdon. 

Posing as the most fabulous married couple of them all, they had to fool the realtor into proving they were seriously interested in buying the house. 

As such a wire transfer was made, taking the house off the market and allowing the two to enter the walls of the home that housed 36 ghosts. 

Behold, and Madison had to do a spell to allow them to see the ghosts because the souls were able to decide when they could be seen by mortals. 

We quickly learned that Constance Langdon, Michael’s grandmother, was dead, and there was a huge hint that she took “the coward’s way out,” courtesy of Moira. 

“I’m Constance Langdon, and this is my f–ing house!” shrieked Constance, marking Jessica Lange’s first episode with the series in four years. 

The mother of Tate went on to say that if they wanted the goods on Michael, they had to do something for her:

Get rid “that insufferable, cloudy-eyed ginger.”

And that they did. The dug up her bones and planted them in the same plot of land as her mother’s corpse. It brought Moira’s storyline full-circle and allowed her to pass on to what came next with someone who was actually happy to see her. 

As for Constance’s end of the bargain, she spilled all the beans, and much of it was to be expected. She tried her best to keep Michael’s murderous instincts at bay. 

In fact, she went as far as planting a rose bush above every single animal he skewered, but that got difficult when he graduated to the big leagues and started offing humans. 

He even had a decade-length growth spurt one night, allowing him to become stronger. But Constance realized he was going to wind up killing her, so she headed over to the Murder House with some pills and a bottle of whiskey. 

“That’s what I call a bon voyage!” Constance laughed as she told the two witches the chilling tale. Constance decided against revealing her spirit to her grandson because she was too damaged following everything. 

However, Ben Harmon was on hand try and make a connection with the child who didn’t exactly have the best start in life. 

What followed were heartwarming scenes of Ben trying to make Michael be the best man he could be, but he drew the line for good when Michael opted to slice and dice two women who moved into the house. 

As if that was not bad enough, he sent their souls away from the world, thus ousting their lives in both places. 

That’s when Viven showed up to continue the trip down memory lane revealing that there was always something amiss with the child and that she believed he was the Antichrist. 

“I never stopped loving you,” Ben said after we learned Vivien has been steering clear of him.

“I know, but I never stopped hating him,” Vivien responded. 

Everything changed for the worse when a cult showed up at the house to worship Michael, confirming all of their worst fears. 

Micheal feasted on the heart of a girl Miriam kidnapped after offering her a ride. That’s when a mysterious shadow appeared behind him, confirming he was indeed the villain of this story. 

Vivan decided enough was enough and tried to kill him, but he turned the tables and attempted to take the women who birthed him out of the equation. 

In a truly surprising scene, Tate showed up and saved her. We also learned that Tate was not taking anything to do with the child despite him being his father. 

“You didn’t spring from my nut sack! Not even I could create something as monstrous, as evil, as you!” he yelled at Michael when he showed up in his room. 

Speaking of Tate, he and Violet’s relationship was essentially over. Violet couldn’t look at Tate after everything he did, but Madison managed to talk to her. 

She said that Tate was possessed by the evil inside the house. Could that be the case? Maybe, but it all felt a little too convenient.

Former American Idol Star Busted for Heroin Distribution

Antonella Barba was maybe the most controversial contestant in American Idol history.

And not much has changed for the former singer many years later.

idol, a

According to TMZ and other outlets, the Season 6 near- finalist was arrested on Thursday morning and charged with a felony.

She is being held in jail without bond because she allegedly tried to sell over 100 grams of heroin.

Yes, heroin.

Not many other details are available at the moment, but Barba is looking at significant jail time if this really is the crime she is accused of committing and if she is found guilty.

Here is her mug shot, courtesy of the Norfolk Sheriff’s Department;

Despite finishing just outside the Top 12 on Season 6, Barba made numerous headlines in 2007 for a very different kind of scandal in which she found herself.

She gained notoriety for posing in a wet t-shirt in the fountain of the World War II Memorial in D.C. — and also for allegedly having photos taken of her while she gave someone oral sex.

Barba continued to be voted on to subsequent rounds during her run on Idol, stirring up quite a debate over whether she was earning the favor of viewers for her singing talent…

… or for these more lewd and explicit exploits.

We’ve blurred out the most private part of this photo, but here’s one of the pictures that got Barba in trouble back in the day:


She was also arrested for shoplifting in New York City in 2011.

She was charged with two misdemeanors at the time.

Still, the following year, Barba appeared on an episode of Fear Factor.

She has also acted in a number of short films since… had a small role in 2017’s All About the Money… and, earlier this year, she appeared on a “Where Are They Now?” segment on Jimmy Kimmel Live!

No one from Barba’s camp has commented on her arrest just yet.

In related news…

Fellow American Idol alum Haley Reinhart, – who also appeared on this same Jimmy Kimmel Live! segment- was arrested on one count of battery after getting into a bar fight in Chicago last year.

Reinhart was found guilty in February.

However, the judge agreed to strike the conviction from her record if she has no run-ins with the law in the next two years.

sn, barba

We’ll update this story with more news as it breaks.

As far as we know, Barba remains behind bars right now, pending an upcoming hearing.

Let’s hope she turns her life around.

American Horror Story Recap: Who Returned from the Dead?

The battle to become the new Supreme continued on Wednesdays American Horror Story, and it resulted in a fan-favorite character returning from the dead, a big death, and the return to the Murder House we’ve been waiting for. 

Picking up right where last week’s installment closed off, Cordelia was unconscious following Queenie and Madison returning from the dead. 

Hey, it’s not every day someone can do the thing the Supreme could not, but before Cordelia returned to the land of the living, she had a vivid dream of the apocalypse. 

Miss Robichaux’s Academy was a pile of rubble, the winter fog was everywhere, and there were people feasting on Cordelia’s intestines. 

It turns out; there’s not a lot of protein going around during the end of the world. The biggest shocker was a white-faced man laughing about the destruction he caused. 

When Cordelia woke up, she agreed to administer the Seven Wonders for Michael, much to the chagrin of Myrtle. The women have had the power for so long that Myrtle felt like it would be a travesty to give it up. 

Once back home, Cordelia admitted that her power was fading, and by being dismissive of Michael, she was going to make the dark future become a reality. 

John Henry, who has been jealous of Michael since he learned of his power, worried that there was something more going on here. 

That’s why he decided to make his way to New Orleans to hash out his concerns with the witches, but Miriam was hot on his tail, and sliced him up, before setting him on fire. 

As expected, Michael passed the Seven Wonders without so much as breaking a sweat. But Cordelia decided to switch things up by asking Michael to do something she could not do:

Bring Misty back from the dead. Michael brought her back, and the Stevie Nicks fanatic wasted no time in telling Cordelia the villain was talking to evil in hell, and that there’s something dark about him. 

Cordelia wanted Misty to work with the coven to help save the world, but Misty had been gone too long and didn’t know how to use her magic. 

That’s when the White Witch (Nicks) appeared and started singing at Misty about rising up to be the person everyone already knows she is. 

With Cordelia’s coven now intact, she should be able to fight Michael. As you may recall, if you watch American Horror Story online, Cordelia was adamant about winning the war in the present. 

Misty failed at bringing herself back from the dead during her test of the Seven Wonders, but technically she’s returned from the dead. 

That, in theory, could mean that she’s passed the test after all. There was no confirmation of it, but there’s no getting away from it. 

As for Madison, she was sent on a mission to the Murder House to round up all the information she could about the spawn of Satan that was going by the name Michael Langdon. 

Behold went along for the ride. Yes, that’s his name. Despite advocating for Michael to complete the Seven Wonders, he was concerned about his abilities. 

We got a blink, and you’ll miss it glimpse of the Murder House. 

This is going to be fun!

American Horror Story Recap: Who Survived the Outpost 3 Bloodbath?

American Horror Story: Apocalypse got off to one of the best starts in franchise history, but it all fell apart with a weak second episode. 

American Horror Story Season 8 Episode 3 picked up the pace with Michael trying to establish who would be making their way to the elusive Sanctuary. 

During a conversation with Mallory, she opened up about feeling like there’s something inside of her trying to claw its way out. 

That’s when she unleashed some sort of power that could have brought a fiery end to Michael if he was a human. 

What this revealed was that Mallory could be a witch and that Michael was scared of her. He quickly got to work to plead for answers to the person who controls him. 

Things got downright weird when we learned that Miriam was having memories of raising a young blonde boy, but she had no idea why. 

Desperate for a place in this safe haven, Miriam and Venable made a plan to kill everyone in Outpost 3 meaning they would absolutely have to go to this new place. 

Their plan picked up steam when a bunch of flawless apples was delivered by The Cooperative, and the duo got to work in putting snake venom into them. 

Unbeknownst to the pair, Coco’s ex actually survived the end of the world and was hiding under the carriage. 

He later murdered one of their henchmen to make his way inside to find Coco to get revenge on her. 

In a surprising twist, Brock murdered Coco at a Halloween party while posing as Michael. 

Venable’s plan worked, and everyone else died as a result of the poisonous apple, but not all of them stayed dead. 

Venable and Miriam went on a mission to take down Michael for good, but we learned that Miriam was actually crafted as Constance Langdon, and he gave her the memories she was looking for. 

Miriam/Constance then turned the gun on Venable, ending her reign of terror once and for all. 

Downstairs, Cordelia, Myrtle, and Madison appeared and saved Coco, Mallory, and Dinah from a certain death. 

Oh yes, the witches are back, and it seems like there are more of them than ever, you guys. 

“Surprise bitch, bet you thought you’d seen the last of me,” Madison said to Mallory, confirming they had a history. 

What the heck is going on? 

So. Many. Twists. 

And we have to wait another week to find out how all of this is going to play out.
