Billie Lee: Replacing Kristen Doute on Vanderpump Rules? Accusing Entire Cast of Transphobia?!

Folks, be happy that the cameras are currently rolling for Vanderpump Rules Season 7 because it sounds like sh-t is really hitting the fan in West Hollywood this week.

The drama began with rumors that Kristen Doute had been fired from the show due to her inability or unwillingness to stir up unnecessary drama with her castmates.

If you watched last season, you know Kristen seemed to be content in a stable, committed relationship and wasn’t getting blackout drunk nearly as often.

In other words, she committed each of the reality star cardinal sins, and no one was surprised by news that she’d been banished to Vander-purgatory to await the endtimes in the company of Vail Bloom and Laura Leigh.

“She’s just not crazy Kristen anymore,” one production source bluntly stated.

Kristen denied that she’d been demoted to “friend of the castmates” status, but the rumor resurfaced this week with some new and intriguing details:

According to Radar Online, Kristen will be replaced as a full-time cast member by SUR newcomer Billie Lee.

“She did extremely well,” the source said about Billie Lee’s first season on the show.

“All of the cast loves her — and so did the ratings!”

Of course, it appears the source delivered that quote ahead of the Twitter war that began playing out between Billie Lee and the rest of the cast last night.

It seems the ladies of SUR will be hosting a Tuesday night event at the restaurant called Girls’ Night In.

(What happened to James Kennedy’s See You Next Tuesday? Fingers crossed that shaved ferret got sh-tcanned, too!)

Billie Lee apparently felt that she had been left out of the gathering, and she made her feelings clear in a very irate tweet:

“When yo coworkers don’t include the only trans girl in GIRLS night at your own job! On the night you work! #rudeAF #TransIsBeautiful.” she wrote.

As you can see, it appears that Billie Lee was indeed invited to the event, which may be why Kristen and company were so vehement in defending themselves:

“You better check yourself before you wreck yourself,” Doute tweeted, adding:

“It’s not your event. Don’t make this about something it’s not. #NoH8 … We are not hateful people and ABSOLUTELY support the LGBTQ community. A person is a person is a person.”

Katie Maloney echoed the sentiment, tweeting:

“I’m completely supportive and will always be supportive of the LGBTQ community … EVERYONE is invited and welcome tomorrow!”

It’s possible that Billie Lee was genuinely offended by what she perceived as prejudice among her castmates — but it’s equally possible that she’s stirring up drama to give the people what they want.

And if that’s the case, the girl might have a very bright future at Bravo.

Jenelle Evans Blasts “Porn Star” Farrah Abraham, Gets Roasted By Entire Teen Mom Cast

Last week, the 2018 MTV Movie and TV Awards took place in Los Angeles.

The star-studded event was attended by some of the biggest celebs in Hollywood … and for some reason, Farrah Abraham was there, too.

Now, we can understand why the former Teen Mom OG star was on hand.

Farrah may have gotten fired by MTV, but she was one of the network's biggest stars for over a decade.

But apparently, Jenelle Evans doesn't see the logic in the decision.

In fact, as The Ashley's Reality Roundup reports, Jenelle was so enraged by the sight of Farrah on the red carpet that she took to Twitter to express her displeasure — a move she probably regrets right about now. 

1. Farrah on the Red Carpet

The Movie Awards and the red carpet are apparently considered two separate events. Jenelle was pissed to learn that Farrah had been invited to both.

2. Plus One

Not only that, she was permitted to bring her 9-year-old daughter Sophia along.

3. Haters at Home

The sight of Farrah and Sophia enjoying the event apparently sent Jenelle into a rage. Then again, pretty much everything sends Jenelle into a rage.

4. Tweets of Rage

Tweets of rage
As The Ashley’s Reality Roundup reports, Jenelle made her displeasure with the situation very clear in a series of now-deleted tweets.

5. The P-Word

“Porn star going to the MTV Awards with a plus one but I was invited but could [not] bring David?! [Farrah] was fired not me…lmao wowwww. @MTV,” Jenelle wrote, along with a link to an article about Farrah attending the awards.

6. The Clapback

Not surprisingly, it wasn’t long before Farrah responded to the Jenelle’s remarks. And in doing so, she ignited a conflict that engulfed stars from all over the Teen Mom galaxy …

Bill Cosby Fires His Entire Legal Team; What’s His Game?

As we all know, Bill Cosby is super guilty. By which we mean that he was found guilty by a jury of his peers for multiple counts in the 2004 sexual assault against Andrea Constand.

He is due to be sentenced in three months … but he has fired his entire high-profile legal team.

What is he thinking?

Bill Cosby still has three months to go before he is sentenced for all three counts of aggrivated indecent assault of Andrea Constand.

He remains under house arrest until that time.

It is quite the surprise to learn that he has dismissed his press-friendly attorney, Tom Mesereau, whom he brought on board to defend him in 2017.

Mesereau is famous for having defended Michael Jackson, but his courtroom strategy wasn’t enough to hoodwink the jury.

Perhaps Cosby is unwilling to continue paying the man who failed to get him an acquittal.

Cosby isn’t going to represent himself at his two-day sentencing hearing, which is scheduled for September 24-25.

He has instead hired Pennsylvania attorney Joseph P. Green Jr. to fulfill that role.

Green is an established lawyer, but not nearly as high-profile as Cosby’s previous representation.

It may be that Cosby simply wants an attorney but is no longer willing to shell out big bucks for high priced representation for another three months — not if he doesn’t believe that it will change anything at his sentencing.

Some have wondered if he may be hoping that, by acquiring a new attorney, the date of his sentencing hearing might be pushed back.

Cosby is 80 years old, and will be 81 after his July 12 birthday.

Some wonder if, comfortable while under house arrest, he is pushing to delay his incarceration as long as possible.

As we said, some find this move surprising, but it is actually consistent with Cosby’s recent history with attorneys.

In July of 2017, Cosby’s jury deadlocked the first time around.

After that mistrial was declared, Cosby fired his attorneys Brian McMonagle and Angela Agrusa in order to hire Mesereau.

As a result, his new trial date was pushed back from the autumn of 2017 to the spring of 2018.

The #MeToo movement began later in 2017, making millions of people more aware that yes, sometimes the people who seem nice on camera are actually sex monsters who’ve gotten away with it all for years.

In fact, potential jurors had months to soak in story after story about famous, seemingly charming men who terrorized women and used their wealth and influence to cover it up.

In light of that, many wonder if Cosby wishes that his second trial had been much, much earlier.

But this new shift in his legal representation might might that he ends up pushing his sentencing another few months. Perhaps all of the way to 2019.

It is difficult to tell if this is part of a legal strategy, though.

McMonagle and Agrusa themselves had replaced his previous attorney, Marty Singer, in 2015.

Maybe Cosby is just being grouchy or quickly grows dissatisfied with his attorneys.

It is very difficult to tell what exactly is going on in that man’s mind right now.

Aside from, one assumes, fear.

Some rumors suggest that Cosby may need another attorney for a very different courtroom in the near future.

Is Camille Cosby planning to divorce him?

In public, his wife says that his conviction was “mob justice” and somehow the fault of racism.

12 jurors of his peers doesn’t sound much like “mob justice” to us.

And if racism was at play behind that guilty verdict, then why didn’t the jury in 2017 convict?

But if she is privately planning to leave him, he could find himself facing off in two court battles at the same time.

Would he retain a divorce attorney for any longer than he holds onto defense attorneys?

Who knows, with that guy.


Raccoon Scales Skyscraper, Keeps Entire Internet on Edge

The MPR Raccoon is safe!

We repeat: The MPR Raccoon is safe!

As anyone with an Internet connection knows, it was a tense night on Tuesday for those who tracked the unexpected actions of this creature, who sky-rocketed to viral fame thanks to a climb we're guessing he really wanted to make.

The animal was discovered by employees at Minnesota Public Radio (hence the hashtag "#MPRraccoon"), whose building sits next to the 23-story office tower in St. Paul that this raccoon decided to scale after he got scared by a window cleaner.

Climbing higher and higher, the critter apparently realized after awhile that he couldn't simply jump down without risking life and limb…

… so he simply kept going.

My picture from the 13th floor around noon. Hope he makes it down OK! #mprraccoon, read the caption to this amazing photo.

When maintenance workers attempted to coax the raccoon down, he became frightened and scampered so far up the skyscraper that he was out of reach of any human helper.

At various points, the raccoon stopped for a break, sitting on ledges directly outside the windows of various workers and Twitter users.

To wit:

"He is on the ledge on our floor," explains the above individual, who snapped a rather adorable photo of the animal and added:

"He seems to be doing well. We’ve been told that the building has live traps on the roof and are trying to get him to go up there. We all just have to keep our fingers crossed.. #mprraccoon."

Indeed, an entire World Wide Web crossed its collective fingers, unsure how this saga would end, not especially anxious to see a raccoon plummet to his death off the side of a tall building.

(It's here where we must acknowledge the power of a cute face. Because, let's face it, raccoons aren't exactly the most cuddly creatures around.)

Local television station KARE11 in Minnesota started streaming the raccoon’s movements on Tuesday evening, while MPR was constantly updating its story throughout the day on Twitter and Facebook.

The story even reached national levels of attention with a segment on Good Morning America, which we've included below.

So… did MPR Raccoon reach the roof and the live trap set there with cat food safely?


The animal will soon be released into the wild and we'll be forced to scour New York City for the next milkshake squirrel in order to track down the next four-legged Internet sensation.

Check out footage of this wayward raccoon below!

Matt Damon Gets Dragged by Entire Internet for Sexual Misconduct Comments

Matt Damon is generally considered one of the nicest, least controversial actors in Hollywood.

But the star has gone ahead and stuck his typically-genial foot directly into his very handsome mouth.

On Wednesday’s episode of ABC News’ Popcorn With Peter Travers, the actor shared his take on the influx of sexual misconduct allegations that continue to hit the entertainment profession.

And, in doing so, Damon opened himself up to criticism from… well… pretty much everyone.

“I think we’re in this watershed moment,” he said early in the interview, adding:

“I think it’s great. I think it’s wonderful that women are feeling empowered to tell their stories – and it’s totally necessary.”

There you go. Perfect. Damon could have just stopped there and no one would be talking about him right now.

But he didn’t stop there.

With sexual misconduct allegations derailing the careers of such stars as Louis CK, Kevin Spacey, Matt Lauer, Mario Batali and MANY others, Damon made many attempts to parse various situations.

Referring to a “spectrum of behavior,” he said:

“There’s a difference between, you know, patting someone on the butt and rape or child molestation, right?”

In this case, Damon was citing scandals that have enveloped politicians Al Franken (butt patting) and Roy Moore (alleged child molestation).

“Both of those behaviors need to be confronted and eradicated without question, but they shouldn’t be conflated, right?” Damon continued, saying he would have “preferred if they had an Ethics Committee investigation.”

However, Damon argued:

“We are so energized to kind of get retribution.”

Most people would not say anyone is energized to get “retribution” right now.

They would say women are energized to speak out against the many times they’ve been wronged; and this should only be applauded.

In one of his most dissected and disappointing statements, Damon said:

“We live in this culture of outrage and injury, and, you know, we’re going to have to correct enough to kind of go, ‘Wait a minute. None of us came here perfect.’

“You know what I mean?”

Not really.

One can not be perfect and also know how to treat a woman with respect at all times.

Among those who have dragged Damon for his comments is Minnie Driver, who co-starred with the actor in Good Will Hunting.

She linked to his controversial interview on Twitter and just wrote “God, God seriously?”

Others, meanwhile, have said the following:

damon tweets

Damon, who was close to Harvey Weinstein after the producer helped get Good Will Hunting made, dug himself into an even deeper hole when citing individual examples.

Admitting he doesn’t “know all the details” about Louis C.K., for example, Damon said the following:

“I don’t do deep dives on this, but I did see his statement…

“When he came out and said, ‘I did this; I did these things; these women are all telling the truth,’ I just remember thinking, ‘Well, that’s the sign of somebody who…well, we can work with that.'”

Ummm…. there are two problems with this argument:

  1. CK was accused of pulling out his penis and masturbating in front of many women. Damon could have taken a few easy second to research this online.
  2. CK only released his statement AFTER reports came out that basically confirmed these actions.

Damon is concerns that “the clearer signal to men and to younger people is [to] deny it, because if you take responsibility for what you did, your life’s going to get ruined.

“I mean, look, as I said – all of that behavior needs to be confronted, but there is a continuum.

‘And on this end of the continuum where you have rape and child molestation or whatever, you know, that’s prison. Right? That’s what needs to happen. OK?”



Look, yes, there’s a difference between outright rape and a few misguided comments. No one denies this.

But one could argue that a culture that looks past the latter on a continual basis contributes to more of the former because there because a general acceptance of women as nothing but sex objects.

Moreover, this just isn’t the time, Matt.

There have been too many instances of too much heinous behavior around Hollywood. This isn’t the time to get up on a pedestal and try to teach America about grey areas.

But Damon focused on social media in his interview and lamented today’s culture of presumed guilt, saying:

“The moment a claim is made… I would be scorched earth. I’d go, ‘I don’t care if it costs $ 10 million to fight this in court with you for 10 years; you are not taking my name from me. You are not taking my name and my reputation from me. I’ve worked too hard for it.

“And I earned it. You can’t just blow me up like that.'”

“Once a claim is made, there will no longer be settlements. That’s my prediction, just based on what I’ve seen.”

“Isn’t that a good thing?” Travers countered, noting many female had been unable to share their stories because of nondisclosure agreements.

“One hundred percent,” Damon responded, adding that “every woman who’s coming forward with one of these stories needs to be listened to and heard.”

Boom. Yes. Done.

That’s all you had to say in the first place, Matt Damon.
