Nikki Bella and John Cena: It’s Over! For Good! For Real This Time!

Nikki Bella and John Cena have tapped out.

For good and for real this time, one half of this long-time and famous couple says.

Following a lot of back and forth this spring, which even included a public and heartfelt plea for reconciliation from the multiple-time WWE champion, Bella has told People Magazine that her romance with Cena is over.

She will not be getting back together with him, chiseled body and enormous biceps notwithstanding.

“After I called off the engagement, we tried to work on our relationship to get back to where it was, and in order to move forward with our wedding,” Bella said this week, adding:

“After much time and soul-searching alone and together, we have decided to officially part ways.

“I had a beautiful and loving 6-year relationship with a wonderful man. I have the utmost respect for John, but I know this is what’s best for me.”

Back in April, Cena and Bella called off their engagement, as Nikki mentions in her statement above.

They said at the time that the decision was “difficult,” but necessary and asked for their privacy to be respected.

This request, of course, was a tad bit ironic when you stop to think that Cena and Bella have agreed to have their lives filmed for the reality show Total Bellas.

Moreover, it was Cena himself who went ahead and made a few details of their previous split public.

The wrestler appeared days later on The Today Show and poured his very handsome heart out.

“I still love Nicole, I still would love to marry Nicole, I still would love to have a family with Nicole,” Cena said on national television, explaining that he’s very open to having children, a pretty extreme change in his earlier stance on this topic.

“I don’t want anybody else.

“I love Nicole and I’m really trying to support her in her trying to find whatever it is she wants that made this fall apart in the first place,” Cena added a few months ago.

Watch his candid interview here:

Fast forward to the end of May and Cena appeared to have gotten his wish.

Sources claimed back then that the stars had reunited, although perhaps it should have been telling that neither Cena nor Bella themselves commented on this supposed reconciliation.

This latest break-up news, meanwhile, comes just one day after Bella was seen calling off their engagement for a second time during the season finale of Total Bellas.

The episode was taped many months ago, it’s worth noting.

But it’s also worth noting just what Nikki said at the time about the relationship.

It just sucks,” she said during the finale, adding:

“I wish it could be different and I think that’s why I’ve had almost six years of working on us and fighting and just taking in a lot. I just feel like I’ve hit the point that I’m just so exhausted and done.”

Bella didn’t sound bitter than and she doesn’t sound bitter now.

But she does sound sure of herself.

“It’s just hard when you love someone so much and care for them so much, but you just can’t do it anymore,” Nikki tearfully concluded on the episode.

“It’s not his fault, it’s not my fault. We’ve had this amazing love story and it’s just come to an end.”


The Real Housewives of Orange County Season 13 Episode 3 Recap: Tres Amigas

These ladies sure know how to bring the drama, and that’s commendable when you consider that most of them have been on this show since the beginning. 

On The Real Housewives of Orange County Season 13 Episode 3 found Tamra Judge, Vicki Gunvalson and Shannon Beador embarking on a trip to Mexico. 

The tequila shots were flowing, and it resulted in Gunvalson peeing herself in the airport, and subsequently falling. Yes, we’re going to assume that tequila is not her friend. 

All three of them were a real hoot throughout the trip, but one of the stand out moments has got to be a tequila fueled-Tamra ordering Shannon to show off some more cleavage. 

Shannon has parted ways with her husband, and Tamra was trying to reiterate that she could still show off her body if she wanted to capture another man. 

Tamra also wanted to have fun. The reason? 

“I just want to have a good time because there’s so much s— going on in my life that you could probably make a country song about me,” Judge said, referring to her husband’s ongoing heart problems.

“My husband’s heart’s broken. Somebody give me a shot of tequila. It’s ridiculous.”

The ladies continued to party back at the hotel, and that’s when things went awry. Tamra, 50, flashed Vicki and proceeded to jump back into the hot tub. 

She hit her foot on the way down, and well, she broke it. 

“I might’ve hurt my foot,” she said.

“Like, might’ve hurt like broke my foot maybe?” “It’s all gonna be good. Can we have another shot? I think I need another shot and my foot’s gonna be real good.”  

The tequila masked the pain for a short while, but Tamra wound up in the hospital and learned that her foot was broken. 

It was wrapped in a cast. The true kicker was that she was told she would not be able to drive. 

“By the way, I went to the hospital by myself because you guys passed out,” she teased said to her friends. “I had to take a cab to the hospital; it was 30 minutes away.”

“It’s not funny,” she said to her friends. 

“It sounds like you were drunk as f—,” Tamra’s husband shared with her on Facetime. 

Tamra tried to make the best of a dangerous situation, but she could not keep up after the painkillers entered her system. 

They knocked her out, and it was up to Shannon and Vicki to look after her. 

After dinner one of the nights, Shannon opened up about her thoughts on them being friends again. 

“I have to tell you that the fact that you both came down here to spend just a whopping two days with me has meant so much to me,” she said tearfully to Vicki.

“Four years ago, I wouldn’t even sip tequila. It was David’s new drink. And I didn’t know that he was having an affair at the time. And that was their thing — they would drink tequila.”

“I spent 20 years with a man, and he took me on a trip, and then all of a sudden we come home, and he was done,” she continued.

“And the fact that he has found someone within months of leaving me is devastating. I have gone through the pain knowing that he is with somebody else.”

“You know what the scary part for me is?,” Vicki said in response, adding: ” You can be all in in a relationship, and at any point in time, the other one can check out. It’s like a death.”

They then locked lips, so there’s that.

Carole Radziwill: The Real Housewives of New York City Compromised My Values!!

Last week, we learned that Carole Radziwill is officially done with The Real Housewives of New York City.

We get it. If we’d gone from being fast friends with Bethenny Frankel to feuding with her, we’d head for the hills, too.

But after the news of Carole’s departure went public, she took to social media to insinuate that she had a very different reason for walking away.

Following the announcement that she is parting ways with The Real Housewives of New York City, Carole took to Instagram.

“If you were doing something that was forcing you to do things that went against your own value system,” Carole begins her question to her followers.

Carole then asks them: “Would you walk away regardless of the pay?”

For most, that would depend upon what was being asked and on a lot of life circumstances — including pay.

Carole acknowledges: “Its a tough decision.”

Carole Radziwill Instagram Story Vague Departure Message

Carole went so far as to poll her followers on the question.

“My advice,” Carole writes, is: “Save for a rainy day.”

She kind of mixes up her metaphor a little, as you’re about to see. Oh, Carole.

Carole advises her fans and followers to save “because that day might come when the sun is shining.”

The whole idea behind saving for a rainy day is … never mind.

Carole finishes: “and you can walk away with a smile.”

Carole wasn’t joking about that poll, folks. She looked at the responses and even posted a follow-up.

“So,” Carole reports. “80% would walk away from something that went against their own values.”

Well, that’s the figure who say that they would.

“That’s how I felt this past year too,” Carole admits.

“It’s difficult,” she writes, to say goodbye to a good thing.

“But life is long,” Carole says. “And you can’t always play the short game.”

We have to point out the obvious here — and we don’t just mean that Carole didn’t seem to have a problem being a reality star, despite her “values,” back when she and Bethenny Frankel were getting along.

She’s asking people if they’d walk away from a high-paying gig in order to make a moral stand.

Carole’s estimated net worth is around $ 50 million. She is directly related to royalty.

So walking away from a steady gig is … probably less dramatic than it would be if a single mom of two is faced with the choice of continuing to work in an unethical industry or walking away.

Quite frankly, plenty of people would sell their souls to rake in some Real Housewives money.

Carole announced her departure through a statement.

“After six seasons on Bravo’s RHONYC, I have decided to return to what I do best,” Carole shared. “Journalism and producing.”

“I am sure this does not come as a surprise to any of the viewers,” Carole shares. “All of whom have been supportive, encouraging, and kind.”

“My original curiosity about reality television has waned over the years,” she admitted. “And I am focusing on TV and writing projects that better suit my more steady temperament.”

“I have worked with amazing producers, made great friends, and I’m thrilled to leave frenemies behind.” she said. That last line was a big hit.

Carole concluded: “I will remember this entire experience with delight, humor, and a veracious accuracy.”


Jersey Shoren Return Trailer Shows How “Sh-t” Will Get “Real”

The Jersey Shore cast is officially all grown up.

Granted, you may not know this if you've been following the story of Ronnie Ortiz-Magro and his incessant ugly fighting with his baby mama.

Or if you watched Ronnie and Mike get into a truly epic screaming match on the first season finale of Jersey Shore: Family Vacation.

Or if you listened to that whole Jersey Whore back and forth from awhile back.

All this said, Jersey Shore: Family Vacation Season 2 will kick off on August 23, with episodes previously filmed in Las Vegas and with various cast members taking a few mature steps in their lives.

For instance, Ronnie will often be caring for his daughter.

Denna will be announcing that she's expecting a child.

And Pauly D? He'll be getting married!!!!!!!!

The trailer above teases all of these life-changing events and developments, along with a little bit more.

It promises overall that "sh-t" is about to "get real" for these long-time stars, presumably due to them having to deal with the aforementioned real-life issues.

We're way past just worrying about going to the gym, getting a tan and doing laundry now, folks.

During its run earlier this year, Jersey Shore: Family Vacation helped propel MTV to its best third quarter primetime ratings average among the target adults 18-34 demographic (Live+3) since 2011…

… which happened to be the peak of the original Jersey Shore‘s success.

Even after all this time, plenty of people out there still care about the fates and fortunes of Pauly, Snooki, The Situation and company.

Jersey Shore: Family Vacation Season 2 will bring back housemates Deena Nicole Cortese, Paul “Pauly D” Delvecchio,” Jenni “JWoww” Farley, Vinny Guadagnino, Ronnie Ortiz-Magro, Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi and Mike “The Situation."

What sort of craziness can you expect to unfold?

Aside from someone actually being pronounced "Mrs. Pauly D?"

The Real Housewives of New York Season 10 Episode 16 Recap: Guess Who’s Arguing at Dinner?

It sure looks like there’s no hope for Bethenny Frankel and Carole Radziwill. 

Their feud continued on The Real Housewives of New York Season 10 Episode 6, and while it made for good TV, you could tell both women were done with each other. 

When the episode got underway, Bethenny was wailing about how busy she was and that she had very little support. 

“I’m cracking,” she said to Dorinda Medley. 

But things never got any better, and Bethenny called her boyfriend, Dennis for some guidance. 

“I’m crying nonstop like a crazy person. I have no relationship with Carole. I don’t know. I’m not welcome here,” she continued. 

Tensions continued to mount during a group dinner in which the two women tried to figure out what really caused their friendship to go down. 

“I’m just sad, and I’m hurt,” Bethenny said to Carole, but the former journalist genuinely seemed concerned about her frenemy. 

“This has been the worst vacation of my entire life,” said Bethenny after Carole gave her a kiss on the head. 

While that may have seemed the extending of the olive branch, Carole later said in a confessional that her relationship with Bethenny was like an abusive relationship. 


As if things were not bad enough, Luann de Lesseps and Dorinda got into it at the same dinner table, and it all started because of the alcohol. 

“How are the margaritas?” Luann asked.

“What?,” Dorinda replied as though someone had just stolen her margarita. 

“She’s turning,” said Luann of Dorinda. If you watch The Real Housewives online, you know that Dorinda has had some big bust-ups fueled by alcohol. 

“Darling, what’s that mean, darling?,” Dorinda fired back, clearly irate by the way she had just been spoken to. 

Things took a wild turn when Luann refused to apologize.

“Drink some more and get arrested. Felony,'” Dorinda barked at her friend. 

That’s a low blow when you consider the fact that Luann’s arrest and battle with alcohol recently played out on the show. 

Luann managed to keep her cool but told Dorinda to cut the crap, but Dorinda persisted, even going as low as bringing up the mugshot from Luann’s arrest. 

We think it’s fair to say that mugshots are rarely flattering, so we don’t get where Dorinda was going with this. 

Carole decided to immerse herself int that argument, saying Luann has been sober for “two minutes” so should not be passing judgment on others. 

After the ladies talked smack about each other, Bethenny and Luann met up to chat about Dorinda. 

Bethenny brought up the drinking at the aide mission in Puerto Rico. 

“She has a drinking problem,” Bethenny said.

Bethenny then tried to talk to Dorinda about what happened between her and Luann, and Dorinda said the following:

“Yeah, I f***ed my relationship with Luann. It doesn’t matter,” she said.

While Dorinda was ready to forget all about it, Bethenny was adamant that Luann still liked her and they could make things right. 

God, these women really know how to bring the drama. 

What are your thoughts on all the drama?

Kenya Moore: Out of The Real Housewives of Atlanta!

The long-gestating rumors have turned into a reality for Kenya Moore.

According to a reliable new report, the veteran reality star will not be returning to The Real Housewives of Atlanta.

Chatter over Moore’s role on the Bravo hit has been making the Internet rounds for weeks now.

Heck, there was even talk about a month ago that Moore would be fired by producers because she did not want cameras in the room when she gave birth.

(Indeed, Kenya is pregnant! How exciting, right?!?)

This People Magazine article, however, makes no such grand (and semi-ridiculous) claim.

It explains that Moore could not even technically be fired from the series because she was in the middle of a contract negotiation; she was not actually signed for Season 11.

And that contract negotiation?

It did NOT go smoothly.

An insider tells People that production and Moore both wanted her to return as a full-time Housewife.

However, she wanted more money than the network was offering, while executives did actually want to film all aspects of her life, most notably the time she spends with husband Marc Daly.

Moore stunned fans last summer when she married Daly

… and she also stunned producers, who wanted to film the ceremony. If only they had known about it!

But Kenya and Daly famously got eloped in June of 2017 when the Bravo cameras were down, without telling producers.

He only appeared on The Real Housewives of Atlanta once during season 10, for a brief cameo.


The couple is expecting its first child together (he or she is due before the end of the year), yet Moore kept her entire fertility treatment away from series.

Nor did she participate in last season’s cast trip to Barcelona.

In other words: we sort of get where the show is coming from here.

The whole point of being a cast member is to open up your life to viewers.

You can’t pick and choose what aspects you wish to make public, not when you’re getting paid a ton tobe a Real Housewife.

“Everyone wanted to have Kenya back, but they wanted to have the old Kenya back – the one who isn’t afraid of the cameras,” a source close to production told the aforementioned publication, adding:

“You can’t have secrets and be on reality TV. Especially when other Housewives are showing all of their lives – the good, bad, and the ugly.

“They need to see your life.”

This report concludes that Daly isn’t really interested in being on the show; that Kenya knows her worth; and that she was fine playing hardball.

She can live with this outcome.

“Kenya really loves her life with her husband. She’s always wanted to be a wife and a mother, and she’s put all of her focus into her growing family,” the source explains.

“She’s not going to jeopardize that for some television show.”


Carole Radziwill: Done with The Real Housewives of New York City!

We have another Real Housewives franchise cast shake-up.

Just hours after we confirmed that Kenya Moore has left the Atlanta version of this program admist a messy contract negotiation, we can now also announce the following:

Carole Radziwill is finished with Bravo as well.

The 54-year-old, who not everyone realizes is an award-winning journalist and best-selling author, told People Magazine on Wednesday evening that she’s departing the cable network hit.

She joined the program during Season 5.

“After six seasons on Bravo’s RHONY, I have decided to return to what I do best –  journalism and producing,” Radziwill said today, adding in more detail:

“I am sure this does not come as a surprise to any of the viewers, all of whom have been supportive, encouraging, and kind.

“My original curiosity about reality television has waned over the years and I am focusing on TV and writing projects that better suit my more steady temperament.

Radziwill came on board as a Real Housewife in 2012, along with Heather Thomson and Aviva Drescher.

It may seem hard to believe now to those who follow this franchise closely, but Carole quickly became good friends with SkinnyGirl founder Bethenny Frankel in Season 8.

Their friendship has soured significantly, however.

Radziwill and Frankel went at it very hard, in fact, on the most recent episode of this reality smash.

You can watch The Real Housewives of New York City online via the following video in order to see what transpired:

In her statement to People, Radziwill concluded with a combination of sincerity and humor:

“I have worked with amazing producers, made great friends, and I’m thrilled to leave frenemies behind.

“I will remember this entire experience with delight, humor, and a veracious accuracy. Next.”

For those unaware, Radziwill really does have an impressive journalistic resume.

She was stationed in Iraq back in 1991 and was embedded with an infantry unit of the 101st Airborne Division in Afghanistan in 2003.

In 2006, Radziwill signed with Glamour magazine to write a monthly column titled Lunch Date.

Carole also sold her first novel, The Widow’s Guide to Sex & Dating, in a six-figure deal to Holt Publishing. It was released on February 11, 2014.

For her work, Radziwill has won three Emmys and a Peabody.

In the wakeof her departure, meanwhile, Radziwill left a very simple note on Instagram. It reads as follows:

Carole Radziwill message

Radziwill’s husband Anthony, died in 1999 after a five-year battle with cancer.

She’s currently in an on-again, off-again relationship with chef and filmmaker Adam Kenworthy.

The Real Housewives of Orange County Season 13 Episode 2 Recap: Vicki Gunvalson Did WHAT?

Battle lines were drawn on The Real Housewives of Orange County Season 13 Episode 2, and we’re surprised to report that Kelly Dodd and Vicki Gunvalson are officially on the outs. 

No, we’re not talking about one of them getting mad about not being invited out for some cocktails. In fact, Kelly threw Vicki out of her house at one point during this hour. It was wild, so let’s get to it. 

Vicki was the woman who helped set up Kelly’s ex-husband, Michael Dodd with his current girlfriend. As if that was not bad enough, Vicki had even indulged in double dates with the new couple. 

If you watch The Real Housewives of Orange County online, you know that Kelly and Vicki have been like two peas in a pod since laying eyes on each other a few years back. 

So, this is a pretty big deal. Vicki went behind her BFFs back and failed to tell her about it. That’s pretty low, but is that not what Vicki has done since the show debuted? 

Even after all these years, it’s hard to imagine her changing her ways. Despite being back in good graces with Tamra Judge and Shannon Beador, Vicki needed a storyline to remain relevant. 

“Kelly’s dating, she’s fine,” Gunvalson said defending herself when the truth came out.

“She said [to Michael], ‘I want you to find somebody else. I want you to date.’ … The fact is, he’s moving on. And if I’ve got some single girlfriends who want to meet her ex-husband, so what? It has nothing to do with Kelly. She’s the one who dumped him!”

“You’re my friend,” Kelly told Vicki. “I’m getting all these text messages and everything that you hooked up Michael, and you didn’t tell me? … You’ve gone out with them a couple times? And you never told me? Why would you not tell me?”

But Vicki was not ready to accept that she was the one who set them up. Yes, OG Vicki is back. 

“I had a BBQ four months ago. My friend was there, and he was there. And I didn’t hook up anybody,” she explained. “They communicated afterward and I was out. I didn’t know where it was going and it was none of my business.”

“I thought he would tell you. It’s his responsibility to tell you,” Gunvalson said of Michael. “Don’t blame me. You take that up with Michael.”

Um, what? 

Are best friends not supposed to communicate about, like, everything? 

Vicki then uttered her stupidest come back yet:

“I’m not telling you. I’m not going to tell you. I’m never going to tell you. … It is not my fault that your husband is dating somebody. I care so much about you that I didn’t tell you.”

“Are you kidding me? Anybody would say that’s f—– up. Anybody would say,” Kelly yelled upon hearing this sub-par excuse. 

“That breaks my heart. That actually breaks my heart,” she said. “You tell me that you’re friends with them? You’ve gone on double dates? That’s wrong.”

Hurricane Gunvalson then shocked Kelly to the very core. 

“Oh Kelly, don’t make this drama about you. You don’t love your husband. He’s dating somebody else. So what?”

“You want to do stuff with drama? I’m out! You want to do drama because Steve and Michael said let’s go out to dinner?” she continued, before screaming.

“You are causing problems where there doesn’t need to be any. Stop it. Stop it. Who cares who he goes out with!”

“Obviously you are not my friend. You know what, I don’t roll with girls like that,” Kelly barked back while fighting tears.

“You know what, Vicki, why don’t you just leave. You know, you’re just not my friend. That’s it. You’re not my friend. … I’m just; I’m done with you.

“I didn’t hook him up. Kelly, you’re out of line,” Vicki yelled as she got ready to leave.

“I’m out. I don’t get talked to like that. F— her.”

“I think Kelly’s overreacting,” she told viewers. “I think Kelly’s still in love with Michael.”

Yes, Vicki Gunvalson is once again, at the center of the drama. It only took two episodes. 

While Vicki was burning bridges with Kelly, she was trying to get back in Eddie’s good books. You know the man she claimed was gay. 

She started this off by sending some food to the house after his surgery, before showing up uninvited to try and help him build a bridge to get over it. 

Eddie accepted, and they moved on from this needless drama. Go figure. 

The rest of the episode was subdued, but we got to meet Gina Kirschenheiter aka the one who just divorced her husband!

If we did not already know about the parting of ways, we would probably have had suspicions after Gina’s entrance. 

We got to see her home life, her kids, but nothing of her husband, Matt. All of the wedding pictures showed nothing of him, but much of Gina. 

We learned that he lived in Los Angeles through the week and returned home at the weekend. That’s hella odd, but could that have played a part in the relationship breaking down?

We have no idea, but we’ll surely find out.
