RHOP: Gizelle Bryant Claims Wendy’s “Not Happy” and Slams Her, Plus Wendy Shades Ashley’s Marriage

Published

Gizelle Bryant believes Dr. Wendy Osefo is out of line with her ongoing comments about the relationships of their Real Housewives of Potomac co-stars.

As Wendy continued to make jabs at Gizelle and Robyn Dixon, both of whom were unwed (at least at the time the season was filmed), Gizelle said she didn’t like Wendy as Robyn warned that Wendy’s negative comments towards them could come back to “bite [her] in the a–” and Karen Huger accused Gizelle of being “jealous” of Wendy’s marriage to Eddie Osefo.

During a recent RHOP episode, Wendy suggested that Gizelle doesn’t fully understand the sanctity of marriage because her marriage to her ex-husband, Jamal Bryant, wasn’t good marriage, and because she’s currently single with no relationship to protect. This was in response to Gizelle deciding to discuss the unsubstantiated rumors about Wendy’s husband on the show,

“Wendy’s extremely judgmental,” Gizelle stated on the RHOP: After Show. “Wendy thinks that if it’s not [what] her picture-perfect relationship is then it is to be talked about, [and] it’s to be judged. And I don’t like people like that.”

“Life is bigger than whatever it is that you’re living so you’re just showing everybody, Wendy, who you are. And you’re not happy. Sorry, I know you try to make it seem like you are. You’re not happy, honey,” she added.

“Some people try to pretend,” Robyn agreed.

According to Robyn, she believes Wendy puts her “perfect life” and “perfect relationship” on display so she has something to “hold over our heads.”

“Hopefully she won’t have to go through anything I’ve gone through in the past but for the most part, relationships are hard. So if I was her, I would just be careful about how you throw daggers at other people’s relationships because a lot of times, it can come back and bite you in the a–,” Robyn warned.

During her own segment, Wendy suggested that the other relationships seen on the show don’t have the “understanding and commitment” that she and Eddie have in their marriage.

“So many people tout their relationship status but it’s not about your relationship status it’s about the level of joint understanding and commitment from both people,” Wendy explained. “I don’t expect someone to understand where I’m coming from just because they were married or they’ve been married.”

Because she and Eddie have mutual respect for one another, and they took a “sacrament of marriage,” she feels her RHOP castmates shouldn’t “play with that.”

“I said this to Gizelle, ‘You can play with everybody else’s relationship but don’t play with mine,’” she recalled.

Wendy went on to specifically suggest that Ashley isn’t in a real marriage with her husband Michael Darby.

“We talked about Ashley earlier. Yeah, Ashley’s married but [Candiace interjects to ask “Is she?”]… and that’s the truth… that’s not shade,” Wendy alleged.

Karen also weighed in on the back and forth, saying that when it comes to Gizelle and one other, they’re only “wives by association.”

“So when you don’t have something to lose, of course, you’ll come after it and you don’t respect the institution. [Gizelle] doesn’t value that. And if you don’t value that, then you’ll come for that because you’re jealous of those who have that,” Karen added.

Ryan Gosling Talks About Quarantine With Kids Esmeralda, 7, & Amada, 5, In Rare New Interview

Ryan Gosling & Eva Mendes

Ryan Gosling gave a rare interview to GQ magazine in which he talked about how he and wife Eva Mendes got through the pandemic with their two young daughters.

Oh, to be a pandemic-era parent. Ryan Gosling is giving us all kinds of relatability vibes in a new interview with GQ magazine at a launch party for the famous actor’s new (and first) brand partnership with Tag Heuer. The October 7 interview gave a rare look into the Drive star’s parenting skills with longtime partner Eva Mendes as he talked about his two daughters, Esmerelda and Amada, and how they all managed to stay entertained through quarantine.

“Our kids are young, so it was a tough time for them to be separated from other kids and not being able to see family and whatnot,” The Notebook actor said. “So, we did our best to entertain them. I think Eva and I did more acting in quarantine than we have in our whole careers.” We’re definitely imagining award-winning puppet performances.

Ryan and Eva have been together since 2011. They met on the set of their crime drama movie released the following year, The Place Beyond the Pines, which also featured Bradley Cooper. Three years later, the couple welcomed their first daughter Esmerelda, who is seven-years old today. Then in 2016, Amada, 5, joined the family on April 29. Rarely do we ever see Ryan, Eva and their kids out at public events as the couple like to keep a low-profile and raise their kids away from the madness of celebrity culture in Hollywood. But every now and then we catch a glimpse of the entertainers out and about with their kids, and usually looking very stylish as laid-back as they can be! The two have even stepped back from acting in the last few years, with Ryan’s last role being in 2018’s First Man, and Eva’s being 2014’s fantasy thriller Lost River.

Instagram Stories showed the group traveling via private jet, a fleet of red Rolls Royce’s, and later a party limo as they headed to Area 15. For one of the celebrations, Paris stunned in a neon yellow dress and posed with performers who were on stilts. She then changed into a pink mini dress which featured long sleeves and a plunging neckline, as the group moved to Zouk Nightclub where they partied with DJ Tiësto in his booth.

She paired the fuchsia dress with a silver tiara and a birthday sash, in true Paris Hilton style. “Last fling before the ring,” her sis Nicky captioned a photo, which showed Paris in the pink dress with matching sunglasses and a white veil. Paris then took to her own social media to share a throwback video of herself performing in Las Vegas. “I’m in Las Vegas this weekend for me and my fiancé’s joint Bachelor/Bachelorette Party! Throwback to one of my favorite Vegas memories at the Pussycat Doll Lounge,” she captioned the clip.

The Juicy Couture queen was also seen dining poolside at Resorts World Las Vegas, which was decorated with her and Carter’s names in large, marquee lights. “Thank you @resortsworldlv for our beautifully decorated palace! Perfect place to stay for our joint bachelorette/bachelor party,” she wrote. Paris started dating her entrepreneur beau at the end of 2019, and the couple made their romance public in January 2020.

They were spotted on plenty of romanticdate nights together, and  it was clear The Simple Life star was totally smitten with him. Carter popped the question to Paris on her 40th birthday on February 13. “I just started shaking and crying because I was so excited, so happy,” she said on an episode of her podcast about her reaction to the proposal.

The socialite has since opened up about her future, revealing she’s already begun considering a family with her fiancé. “I can’t wait to have a family with him….it’s something that I’ve really been looking forward to,” she said in an episode of her podcast. We can’t wait to see Paris walk down the aisle soon!

RHOSLC: Lisa Barlow Shares Surprising Update with Whitney, Compares Erika Jayne and Jen’s Legal Scandals, and Talks Meredith

Published

Lisa Barlow compared Erika Jayne to Jen Shah during a recent interview.

Amid the sophomore season of The Real Housewives of Salt Lake City, Lisa shared her thoughts about the ladies’ legal scandals before opening up about her relationships with Meredith Marks and Whitney Rose, as well as the cult rumors surrounding Mary Cosby‘s church, during a separate interview.

“They’re both rough,” Lisa told Page Six on October 7. “The victims, if there’s guilt involved, it’s a horrific thing.”

At the end of last year, Erika and her estranged husband, Thomas Girardi, of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, were accused of embezzling millions from his former clients. Then, in March of this year, Jen and her assistant, Stuart Smith, were arrested and accused of running a years-long telemarketing scheme.

“Just from what I’ve seen in the episodes [of RHOBH] that I’ve watched, it’s crazy. I think it’s crazy. The stories that are being told … it’s a lot,” Lisa said of Erika.

Lisa also discussed Jen on the October 6 episode of Access Hollywood’s “Housewives Nightcap,” saying that when it comes to the cast’s decision to stand by her, Jen is “innocent until proven guilty.”

“If there is a guilty verdict, I will 100 percent side with the victims but we need to get there before we start saying who we think is guilty,” she noted.

During the first couple of episodes of RHOSLC, fans watched as Jen battled with Meredith over a series of “liked” posts about Meredith’s son, Brooks Marks, and his sexuality. Looking back at the conversation she forced them to have during the cast’s ice-fishing excursion, Lisa said she felt it was important that her co-stars were able to voice their feelings because she knew they’d never have peace if they continued to sweep the issue under rug.

“The next morning after ice fishing, Meredith called me and literally said, ‘That is the first time I’ve slept in months,’ And so for me, that made everything okay for me,” Lisa recalled.

While many have believed Lisa’s friendship with Jen has had a negative impact on her relationship with Meredith, Lisa said she and Meredith have a “solid friendship” that she keeps “very separate” from her relationship with Jen.

As for the recent “Caterer Gate” scandal on RHOSLC, Lisa admitted she was initially “so excited” to have Angie Harrington join her on the show.

“I was the one that requested [Angie] come on so I was happy,” she admitted.

Unfortunately, that happiness eventually wore off as Whitney suggested Lisa may have encouraged the caterer of Angie’s LGBTQ+ event to cancel on her in retaliation for Whitney and Angie’s newfound friendship (the caterer has since denied this completely).

“That’s hurtful for me because it’s my business, it’s my character. And I would never do that. It’s actually insulting the integrity of the caterers too, that anyone could have influence over them and their business, especially during a pandemic when so many businesses are struggling,” Lisa said.

Luckily, the drama that took place between them actually resulted in some positive progress between her and Whitney.

“The good thing that came out of this is it forces Whitney and I to have conversations. I think this might have been a catalyst for me and Whitney to start having conversations and understanding. Some good things come from this,” she teased.

Also during the interview, Lisa said that when it comes to claims that Mary’s church is actually a cult, “There’s a lot to it.”

Bella & Gigi Hadid

Happy birthday, Bella Hadid! The model celebrated her milestone 25th with a family affair in NYC.

Bella Hadid rang in her 25th birthday in style! The California native looked incredible in a low cut black top as she stepped out in New York City on Saturday, Oct. 9 to celebrate with sister Gigi Hadid, 26, and brother Anwar Hadid, 22. Bella’s outfit, which was giving us serious Veronica vibes (as in the Archie comics), was reminiscent of the early ’00s with a loose knee-length skirt and to-the-knee boots.

She accessorized with a leopard print shoulder bag for a pop of color, which appeared to match a friend’s over-the-knee animal print boots behind her. The brunette ditched her usual bun to wear her hair down, going for a straight look to show off her short bangs. Pulling a page out of Rihanna‘s book, the super model appeared to be holding beverage in a wine glass as she meandered walked around outside.

Gigi, who is mom to 1-year-old daughter Khai with Zayn Malik, went for a decidedly more casual vibe. The Messika jewelry face rocked a cozy heather gray jumpsuit that featured a low cut. She threw on an oversized leather jacket over top to match her chunky loafers, holding onto a purse with her right hand. Gigi kept her blonde hair thrown into a bun, showing off her dewy skin and evening-ready smokey eye.

Meanwhile, Anwar — who is dating Dua Lipa, 26 — opted for a long sleeve graphic shirt featuring the face of a model, along with black pants and a red side bag. Dua didn’t appear to be present with the crew, however, she posted snippets of a party for Bella on the evening of Oct. 8. The English singer and Bella busted a move to “Pine & Ginger” by Amindi K. Fro$t & Tessellated & Valleyz as they laughed and smiled. Once again, Bella — who is in a relationship with Marc Kalman — stunned in a pink tank top and sweatpants for the low eye bash.

“Happy birthday to this lightbeam of a woman @bellahadid,” Dua wrote on her Instagram story. “You are so loved!! Grateful for you sis…rainbows for u always,” the Future Nostalgia singer added, along with white heart emojis.

George Clooney Says Donald Trump Is A ‘Knucklehead’ Who Only Cares About ‘Chasing Girls’

Published

George Clooney, Donald Trump

George Clooney discussed politics, including whether or not he’d consider entering the field himself, and former President Donald Trump, in a new BBC interview.

George Clooney, 60, is fearlessly letting the world know he’s not a big fan of Donald Trump. The actor mentioned the 75-year-old former U.S. president during a recent sit-down interview on the BBC’s The Andrew Marr Show and called him “a knucklehead” who “is going to be a factor for a while” even though his time at the White House ended when President Joe Biden was elected last year.

“He’s going to be a factor for a while. It’s so funny because he was just this knucklehead. I knew him before he was a president. He was just a guy who was chasing girls,” George said in the interview. “Every time you went out he’d come over and be like, ‘What’s the name of that girl?’.”

“He’s going to play this out for a while and we will see where we go with it as a country,” he continued after explaining that he thinks “a lot of things that have to be repaired” in America following Trump’s presidency. “There’s a lot of healing that has to happen and it’s going to take time.”

“My hope is we have a little better sense than to do that again,” the two-time Academy Award winner added.

In addition to Trump, George, who is the father of two with wife Amal Clooney, 43, addressed the question of whether he’d ever be involved in politics himself. “No, because I actually would like to have a nice life,” he said. “I turned 60 this year and I had a conversation with my wife and we were working a lot, as we both do, and I said we have to think of these as the halcyon years. If we have our health, which we do… and I’m 60 and I can still play basketball and do the things I love.”

“But in 20 years I will be 80 and that’s a real number,” he added. “Doesn’t matter how much you work out, what you eat, you’re 80 and so I said we have to make sure we enjoy and live these years in the best possible way.”

Nicki Minaj ‘Came Hard’ For Candiace Dillard At ‘RHOP’ Reunion: ‘It Was An Epic Moment

Nicki Minaj made it known she wanted to show up to the ‘RHOP’ reunion and her dreams came true as she surprised the ladies and went in on housewife Candiace Dillard!

Nicki Minaj, 38, took to social media in July to tell her followers that she was hosting The Real Housewives of Potomac‘s season 6 reunion — a job usually reserved for the king of Bravo, Andy Cohen, 53. But her wishes came true this week when she showed up to set and she went in on one housewife in particular. “She came hard for Candiace [Dillard] and read her,” a source close to production told HollywoodLife EXCLUSIVELY. “It was an epic moment.”

The new mom and self proclaimed Potomac super fan shocked Bravo fans by posting a photo on Instagram shortly after filming wrapped on Oct. 7. “I need to know the date of the reunion so I can clear that week to prepare… Yasss @nickiminaj @bravoandy #Rhop,” The Real Housewives of Atlanta’s Porsha Williams commented. “I cannnnnooootttttt evenn!!!! Major major FOMO!!!!!!” Shahs of Sunset’s Golnesa “GG” Gharachedaghi added.

While Gizelle Bryant, 50, teased on social media that, “It was [fire],” to have Nicki in the room, the ladies had no idea until Nicki walked in that she would be there. “Nicki showed up around 9:15 p.m. and none of the ladies knew she was there,” our source said. “They were so shocked when she walked out.”

Since the Queen Radio host has been vocal about her love of the show and the ladies for quite sometime now, even following some of her favorite ‘wives like Karen Huger, 58, and Robyn Dixon, 42, the cast knew it was always TBD if she’d actually show up with her busy schedule! “They knew it was a possibility,” our source added. “But her appearance was saved for the very end as a total surprise.”

Nicki enlisted the help of her fans — whom she affectionately calls “The Barbz” — when it came to her turn to ask some hard hitting questions. And while Andy held the crown as the main host, Nicki took her turn to assist very seriously. “She asked the ladies 3 or 4 questions that were sent to her from The Barbz into her DMs off social media,” our also spilled.

The Real Housewives of Potomac airs Sundays at 8pm on Bravo.

’90 Day Fiance: The Other Way’ Preview: Biniyam Cries Over Ariela & Avi Leaving For The U.S.

’90 Day Fiance: The Other Way’ Preview: Biniyam Cries Over Ariela & Avi Leaving For The U.S.

Biniyam went to great lengths to stop Ariela and Avi from leaving him in this ’90 Day Fiance: The Other Way’ preview. Ariela promised him they’d return and said they are ‘forever family.’

Ariela has decided to fly back to the United States so Avi can have hernia surgery, but Biniyam thinks they’re going to leave him for good. “Yesterday, Bini got very mad and hid my passport from me,” Ariela reveals in this EXCLUSIVE preview of the October 10 episode of 90 Day Fiance: The Other Way. “I was very upset and felt like that was an aggressive act towards me. But I do understand that he’s not acting like himself and because he’s so traumatized by what happened with his ex-wife.”

Despite trying to stop her and Avi from leaving, Ariela admits she doesn’t hold a grudge against Biniyam. “I do forgive him for hiding the passports, and he did give them back to me almost immediately,” Ariela continues.

She explains to Biniyam that their son needs hernia surgery, and her parents really want to see their grandson. Biniyam begins to cry. He says that this all reminds him of his last relationship. Biniyam was previously married, and his former wife left him and took their child to the U.S.

Ariela sits down with Biniyam and tells him that he is her “family until the end of time” in his native language. She also has a gift for him. It’s matching gold rings for both of them. Inside the ring says “forever family.”

“I’m not taking this off,” Biniyam tells Ariela. This intimate moment definitely helps Biniyam come to terms that Ariela and Avi are going to the U.S. for just a visit and not leaving him forever.

“I’m hoping that by Bini seeing that I invested the time and the forethought to buy us matching rings, it’ll reassure Bini that I am coming back and will maybe ease his suffering a little bit,” Ariela admits. The series airs Sundays at 8 p.m. on TLC.

Charlize Theron has opened up about her role in ‘The Addams Family 2′, revealing that getting her kids’ approval felt better than winning an Oscar.

Charlize Theron, 46, has starred in several award-winning films throughout her career, but her daughters Jackson, 9, and August, 6, have a standout favorite: The Addams Family. “I can tell they are quietly pretty chuffed their mum is Morticia,” the A-lister, who plays the spooky family matriarch in The Addams Family 2, told The Mirror on October 9.

“As a mum who, like all mothers, wants their kids to think she’s cool, it’s a feeling no Oscar can replace. The Mad Max star also voiced Morticia in the first film, and is returning for the sequel which arrives in theaters this week. “I love the relationship between them, their values,” she said. “We need to find kindness and understanding for others who might not look or talk like us. To be a part of something like this and know families will see it really resonates with me.”

The actress continued, “If it grabs them somewhere in the heart and makes them think a little differently about things, boy, would that be great.” The F9 star is a proud mom to her two girls, having adopted Jackson in 2012 and August in 2015. She revealed her family share many of the same values as the on-screen family she’s part of in the upcoming flick.

“I’ve always made sure they know exactly who we were as a family, what we stand for and what our values are. Kindness and treating others in the way you want to be treated is how to go through life,” she explained. “She speaks to them the same as she speaks to adults – something my mother did with me and I do with mine. There’s no googly talk.”

As for what it was like creating a movie during lockdown, Charlize recorded her voiceover at home in Los Angeles while the country was grappling with the COVID-19 pandemic. “I was basically in my closet. They sent me a case with all the stuff and instructions to set it up,” Charlize revealed.
