Robert Valletta Blames Vanderpump Rules Cast For Scheana Marie Breakup: They’re Savages!

Long before Vanderpump Rules Season 6 debuted at the beginning of December, word got out that Scheana Marie and Robert Valletta had broken up after just a few weeks of dating.

It’s a strange situation for viewers, who are just now getting their first real insights into Rob’s character and personality, despite the fact that he has no real ties to the cast any longer.

Of course, it sounds like if Scheana gets her way, he’ll soon be welcomed back into the fold.

Yes, as you may have noticed if you caught Monday night’s episode, Scheana–to borrow a phrase coined by Tom Sandoval–is a bit “Rob-sessed.”

At one point, she openly discussed her desire to marry Valletta, even though they’d only been formally dating for a few months and she was still married to Mike Shay at the time.

But the clearest indication that Scheana would lay down in traffic if Rob asked her to may have been her willingness to ignore the many obvious signs that Valletta was cheating.

In the past, Scheana has harshly criticized friends of hers for being naive about their boyfriends’ infidelity, but she was hearing none of it when several members of her inner circle tried to convince her that Rob had been unfaithful.

Even now that their relationship is over, both parties claim they called it off for reasons that have nothing to do with infidelity.

Scheana appeared on Watch What Happens Live Monday night, and Rob called in, seemingly for no other reason than to blame her friends for their breakup:

“The truth is, it’s really hard in her circle of friends,” Rob said. 

“Individually, when they’re by themselves, they’re really great people, but you put that group of people together and they’re savages. They come after you, and it’s really hard to have a successful relationship with those people coming and attacking you from all sides.”

“Friends say Rob is using her,” an insider claimed.

Here’s the thing:

Despite the fact that he’s the sort of unrepentant d-bag who toasts to “falling in love with something new every day,” we’re actually with Rob on this one.

Scheana’s friends are a pack of sociopaths, and we can’t imagine any healthy relationship existing in that environment.

But that doesn’t mean Rob isn’t shady as hell.

These days, Valletta and Scheana are friends with benefits, and those who know the couple best say he’s only maintaining ties with the SUR girl in order to help his career.

“Every single time Rob is in town, she invites him to an event with her,” one insider tells Radar Online.

“They know that they are much more in-demand together than apart.”

Sadly, it seems Scheana doesn’t see the situation for what it is, and in fact still looks at Rob as husband material.

“Scheana would marry him in a heartbeat if he wanted to marry her,” the source claims.

“But he’s told her that he does not want to be tied down, and she keeps telling him that he will regret it.”

Scheana, you’re helping this guy’s career and having no strings attached sex with him, all the while assuring him that you’ll happily settle down and get married if he ever decides he wants to.

Believe us when we say you’re not giving him a ton of incentive to hurry up and settle down.

Sister Wives Season 8 Episode 1 Recap: They’re Back!

It’s hard to imagine it’s been a year since Sister Wives last graced our television sets. 

But here we are. 

It wouldn’t be an episode of Sister Wives without Kody Brown freaking the hell out about the latest wedding in the family he has to foot the bill for. 

When Sister Wives Season 8 Episode 1 got underway, Kody and his wives were the ones who went venue hunting for Mykelti’s wedding. 

If Kody is the one handing over the cash, he wants to make sure he can get things for the best price possible, and that’s a good thing. 

Far too often, reality TV stars squander all of the money they make from appearances and wind up in a horrible position when the cameras stop rolling. We’re looking at you, Speidi!

Mykelti and Tony were going for a whole different theme for their wedding.

“The theme of our wedding is going to be Mexican vintage because I think it sounds cool and what I’m trying to do is bring two cultures together,” Mykelti said to the cameras. 

“Mexican is Tony, vintage is me. We don’t want to serve a $ 50 plate for everybody. We’re going to do something simple, inexpensive: a taco buffet.”

But Tony thought that came with some big drawbacks: The Brown family are not good at making tacos. 

“When you go to Mykelti’s house, and you want a taco, a really white taco comes out… we want street tacos with like, real steak,” Tony admitted. 

This was music to Kody’s ears because he likes to keep spending to a minimum, but the venue then dropped the bomb that inside caterers absolutely had to be used. 

“We want to give Mykelti this awesome wedding, but 400 people is a lot. She has to realize somewhere in her mind that that’s really expensive. We don’t want to feel like we’re being taken advantage of,” Christine tells the camera.

“We want to give her the nice awesome wedding that she and Tony want, but 400 people is a lot.”

The inside caterer also charged $ 30 per plate so 400 guests would amount to an astronomical figure. 

“We’re just starting out here, but I’m standing here in a bit of shock thinking that we could deal with the reality of 400 people,” Kody says as though he is getting ready to use GoFundMe to pay for the event. 

Meanwhile, Meri was still trying to move on from the whole catfish scandal and decided it was time to make some changes.

She wanted to open an inn at her family home in Utah, and she seemed ecstatic at the prospect of it. 

As expected, Kody was less than enthusiastic about all of it. He wanted to know the ins and outs of it before agreeing that it would be a good idea. 

“Going through this process, this is my first reaction, and I’m very sorry for this–what value is this to us, even to Meri?” Kody said in a confessional. 

“It’s three hours away. How is she going to manage it, how is she going to run it? The reason my concern is there is because every bed and breakfast I’ve ever known of is family-run…It doesn’t have affordability to have employees.

“You have to do the work yourselves.”

Will Meri’s business venture get off the ground running? Will the wedding live up to Mykelti’s expectations?

Faith Stowers Slams Lala Kent, James Kennedy: They’re Both Fake!

If you’ve been watching Vanderpump Rules this season, then you know the show has delivered a satisfying mix of the old (Jax is still a colossal douche) and the new (he’s finding bold and innovative ways to express his douchiness).

At six seasons in, most reality shows are starting to wind down, but Vanderpump remains fresh largely because of just how low its principal players are willing to sink in the name of keeping their genitals stimulated and their livers pickled.

Thus far, this season has focused largely on the crumbling relationship between Jax and his well-meaning, but frustratingly naive girlfriend, Brittany Cartwright.

In the season premiere, we learned that Jax cheated on Brittany with former SUR girl Faith Stowers.

(He didn’t admit it until the following episode, but c’mon … Was there ever any doubt?)

For a while, there was reason to believe that Faith was pregnant with Jax’s baby, but it turns out that was just some BS Stowers cooked up to ensure she’d make it on the show.

But despite pretending to miss her period for the sake of like three minutes of screen time, Faith says she’s not the fake-ass one here.

No, she contends that that title belongs to her former friends James Kennedy and Lala Kent.

Recently, an Instagram follower expressed sympathy for Faith and stated that she hopes Lala is sticking by her during this tumultuous time:

“Lala is upset because she wanted to put this story out there so she doesn’t have my back and has been fake the whole time,” Faith responded.

In another comment, she went into greater detail, slamming not only Lala but her other former friend James Kennedy, whom she claims befriended Jax solely to ensure he wouldn’t get booted off the show due to his total lack of connection with anyone in the cast:

“James says he is back friends with Jax and says sorry faith just business, lol so sad. and Lala is mad because she wanted to deliver the scandal to bravo for more money in her contract and didn’t get to because of scheana party. They were fake friends and i learned my lesson.”

So that’s why Bravo felt it was okay to bring back serial woman-abuser James.

Clearly, Jax’s powers of persuasion know no bounds, as evidenced by the fact that he and Brittany are still together.

We’re pretty sure dude has hypnotic eyeballs, like that snake in The Jungle Book.

Watch Vanderpump Rules online to get caught up in time for what’s alreadu been a bonkers season.

Just be careful not to lock eyes with Jax Taylor.

Dude will have you PayPal-ing him your life savings in no time. 


Justice League Reviews Are In. And They’re Hilariously Harsh.

Justice League is a failure on pretty much every level.

That basically sums the take of movie critics around the country.

In short, the film is terrible.

This probably doesn't come as a major shock to anyone who has seen the Justice League trailer or followed the behind-the-scenes problems that have plagued production.

But you should still scroll down to see just how negative the reviews actually are…

1. The Ringer:

The ringer
Justice League is another attempt to course-correct what some believe were [Zach] Snyder’s botched early entries in the DC universe… The movie wants to be grand, it wants to be fun, but in the end, it’s just another loud, lifeless, high-tech bore

2. Us Weekly:

Us weekly
If a D.C. universe movie is truly going to triumph, it needs to add something fresh to the genre. The sight of well-muscled, costumed superheroes standing in a line ready to take charge doesn’t have the same oomph as it did five years ago. Bring on the excitement and the death-defying thrills and kooky humor for the sequel. After all, nothing is more frustrating than a big-budget extravaganza that just flies by night.

3. New York Times:

New york times
The movie shows a series that’s still finding its footing as well as characters who, though perhaps not yet as ostensibly multidimensional as Marvel’s, may be more enduring (and golden). It has justice, and it has banter. And while it could have used more hanging out, more breeziness, it is a start.

4. Vanity Fair:

Vanity fair
I could be projecting, but boy does poor Gal Gadot look so sad in Justice League, watching this lumbering and witless movie lay waste to the nice thing she just got finished making. It really is a shame. What a dumb irony, to end this movie, of all movies, on a note of bitter injustice like that.

5. The Verge:

The verge
On a moment-to-moment basis, though, Justice League often feels fractured. Whedon’s reshoots are sometimes painfully obvious, as when Flash and Cyborg share a brief personal moment in a graveyard that looks as cheap as a first-season Buffy the Vampire Slayer set. While those scenes can seem roughly interpolated and out-of-place, though, they often offer the film’s most meaningful character moments and flashes of humor and humanity. A quick gag involving Aquaman reveals more about him than the entire rest of the film’s two-hour runtime.

6. Chicago Tribune:

Chicago tribune
The dialogue is painful. [Ezra] Miller’s neurotic routine is initially quite charming, until his one-liners become incredibly cheesy and tired. Aquaman peppers his speech with many dude-brah phrases, while Cyborg, regrettably, utters “boo-yah” at one point.

Chip and Joanna Gaines: Wait, Is THIS Why They’re Leaving Fixer Upper?

Fixer Upper will come to an end after Season 5.

This much we tragically know.

But WHY will Fixer Upper come to an end after Season 5? This question is now being debated around the Internet.

Upon announcing their decision to pull the plug on their hit HGTV home renovation show, Chip and Joanna simply said they needed a break.

The Waco, Texas-based couple has a number of business ventures outside of Fixer Upper and said in a statement that everything is moving a little too quickly at the moment.

“We would be foolish to think we can go and go and fire on all cylinders and never stop to pause,” explained everyone’s favorite reality show couple last month, adding:

“Our family is healthy and our marriage has honestly never been stronger.

“This has nothing to do with a fraudulent skincare line or anything else you’ll inevitably read. This is just us recognizing that we need to catch our breath for a moment.

“Our plan is to take this time to shore up and strengthen the spots that are weak, rest the places that are tired and give lots of love and attention to both our family and our businesses.”

As it turns out, Chip and Joanna were right to assume that fans would “inevitably read” reports to the contrary.

There’s one this week on The New York Post.

And it alleges the stars did not walk away from their highly-rated series simply because they were tired… but because they were angry over their contract.

The argument goes like this:

Fixer Upper is the highest-rated show on HGTV. The network, meanwhile, will soon be sold by Scripps to Discovery Communications.

And sources tell Page Six that Chip and Joanna think this deal will result in a better deal for them as well.

“Scripps talent contracts are very restrictive,” writes the aforementioned newspaper, expounding:

“The talent can’t do anything without their approval – any appearance, any publicity, any endorsement, any product – you have to ask them for permission. It is awful. And on top of that, Scripps takes a big percentage of everything you make – books, appearances, endorsements, products.

“If you make money, they take most of the money.”

It’s easy to see how this would be unappealing to a couple with an empire such as that of Chip and Joanna.

The Fixer Upper contract ends after Season 5 (which Joanna says will be awesome!), and this insider claims the couple is “using this end of their contract as a total renegotiation to get the deal they really want: more money, less work, more control.”

He adds:

“The timing of Discovery buying Scripps worked well in their favor.

“With Discovery hopefully now about to own Scripps, they are rolling the dice thinking the new owners will come running after them and give them the deal they really want.”

There would be nothing wrong with this at all if it’s true.

It’s pretty straightforward business.

A rep for HGTV, however, says the following:

“Of course, this inflammatory information is inaccurate. Chip and Joanna have already shared with their fans why they made their decision and we support them.”

And a rep for Chip and Joanna says the following:

“Chip and Jo’s decision to leave Fixer Upper is truly just based on wanting to catch their breath for a minute; to rest, refresh, and spend even more time with their family and growing businesses.

“It is not based on anything else people might read.

“They were very open and honest about their reasoning behind this decision when they first shared the announcement.”

We shall see.

It’s a cliche, but time will tell.

Chip and Joanna haven’t closed the door forever on Fixer Upper, but if you see the show back on the air pretty quickly after Season 5 ends, youl’l know who was telling the truth here.
