Shannon Beador dishes on the new season of ‘Real Housewives of Orange County,’ sharing the details of her feud with co-stars Emily Simpson & Gina Kirschenheiter.

The Real Housewives of Orange County just dropped its epic Season 16 premiere on Dec. 1, and fans are already talking about the drama heating up between the West Coast ladies! To dish on the forthcoming drama, orange-holder Shannon Beador, 57, spoke with HollywoodLife EXCLUSIVELY about what’s to come between she and her co-stars — more specifically, with Emily Simpson, 45, and Gina Kirschenheiter, 37. “I think that with me, there are some issues and it is true,” she shared of her conflict with her co-stars. “They’re two. They’re a team. It’s two against one in certain parts of the show. We have our issues. Early on. Really early on.”

For the mother-of-three, she added how “difficult” it can be for her to navigate her relationship with someone when there’s “fighting” or “drama” in the mix. “[I]t’s hard for me. It’s not like I say, ‘Oh we’re done filming’ and take it out of your mind,” she shared. “When I pushed that plate […] in that scene [during Season 12], I cried for two months. ‘Oh my God, I can’t believe I acted that way.’ It really affects me. But now I’m good with it. Time heals everything.”

That last mention of healing had us wondering about her current status with her cast. Had time healed everything with Emily and Gina? “Yes, I’m in an OK place with everyone on the cast,” she revealed. “Go figure.”

As far as her relationship with other cast members goes, Shannon shared how she was actually “excited” for the return of “Fancy Pants” Heather Dubrow, 52, after the two faced their ups and downs over the years. “Yeah, we did have a rocky past in my very first season on the show, but after we reconciled and worked things through, we were always in what I consider to be in a good place,” she shared. “I was very excited to have her back.”

The Real Housewives of Orange County airs every Wednesday at 8pm ET on Bravo.

Dazzling dancehall rapper Shenseaa raised eyebrows on Friday with the release of her suggestive “Lick” visual that she co-directed.

The sex-fueled video features flirtatious moments with Megan Thee Stallion…

 

same-sex gyrating, cake clapping, and promo for LELO adult toys, and while controversial, it has over 3 million views on YouTube.

 

 

 

In addition to tons of views, however, the video has sparked criticism from viewers who think it’s “overtly sexual” and/or “too similar” to Megan Thee Stallion and Cardi B’s “Wap.”

Other critics have added that they’re disappointed by the track altogether considering Shenseea’s lyrical ability.

Still, despite that, the 25-year-old rapper who sampled Soca star Denise Belfon is in good spirits and she recently went Live on Instagram to gush about the millions of views her video’s racked up.

“We made the news,” said Shenseaa in an IG Live captured by TheShadeRoom. “We’ve been trending for 25 hours, the streams are going crazy. I’m about to dominate, she later added. “This is the start of what I’m about to do, I’m telling you. For the album that’s coming? Please! I named the album “Alpha” because it resonates with my personality, I’ve always felt like the head of my household.”

She also responded directly to fans in TSR’s comments who said that they weren’t feeling the single.

“To all who love the song thank you 🙏🏽,” wrote Shenseea. “To who don’t you’ll like the next one, or the next one 🤷🏻‍♀️ either way today is a good day.”

 

The undeterred rapper recently told MTV “Fresh Out” that her future is already “ordained” and she sees herself “rising to the occasion”…

and she celebrated “Lick” at a single release party while looking carefree in New York.

 

What do YOU think about Shensesa’s “Lick”? Is it “too much” or just another bit of versatility from the talented Jamaican star?

Sondra Theodore

Hugh Hefner’s former girlfriend, Sondra Theodore, opens up about her experience at the Playboy Mansion in the new ‘Secrets of Playboy’ docuseries. Here’s what you need to know about her.

The new A&E docuseries Secrets of Playboy, which premieres January 24, is peeling back the layers on Hugh Hefner’s Playboy empire. The series features interviews with many of Hefner’s former loves, including Sondra Theodore.

Sondra, now 65, was one of Hefner’s partners during Playboy’s heyday in the late ’70s and early ’80s. She makes some shocking claims about Hefner, including how he treated the women at the Playboy Mansion. From her time with Hefner to her past career aspiration, here are 5 key things to know about Sondra.

1. Sondra dated Hugh Hefner.

Sondra dated Hefner from 1976 to 1981 and lived at the Playboy Mansion. During the Secrets of Playboy docuseries, Sondra reveals that Hefner told her, “You’re the first girl I’ve liked enough to consider having a baby with. That was his romantic way, and people supported it.” She met Hefner when she was 19, and he was 50.

2. Sondra is a former ‘Playboy’ Playmate.

She was Playboy’s Playmate of the Month for its July 1977 issue. At the time, she was dating Hefner. Sondra’s parents feared the spread would “ruin” her career. “They’re really concerned, but within time it’ll blow over,” Sondra told The San Bernandino Sun in 1977.  “It’ll become just a memory. I can’t blame them, they have a right to feel I did a wrong thing. But they continue to love me. They’re just a little confused as to why I did it. They think it will ruin my career.”

3. Sondra claims Hefner would ‘pit’ women against each other.

“He would pit us against each other. There was always a little tiff going with different girls,” Sondra says in Secrets of Playboy. She adds that if the girls were “a little unsure of themselves,” then Hefner could “have his way.”

Sondra claims that Hefner would insist she talk to other women, which eventually led to orgies. “I felt like I was a ringmaster. I felt like I had to put the show on every night,” Sondra says. Sondra goes on to say that she saw “girl after girl” show up at the Playboy Mansion, and their “beauty just washed away.” She adds, “I saw clearly that we were nothing to him.”

4. Sondra wanted to be an actress.

Sondra moved to Los Angeles in 1976 to become an actress. She claims that Hefner tried to put an end to her acting career. “When we broke up, a publicist told me I was supposed to be in a movie with Mary Tyler Moore, which would have been a big career move, to play her daughter,” Sondra told Fox News. “But he wouldn’t let me. I also learned from an executive that a memo went out, saying that nobody was allowed to tell me of any work coming in. And if I didn’t have any money, I couldn’t leave. He kept me secluded and pretty much under his thumb.”

5. Sondra says Hefner was ‘obsessed’ with Charles Manson.

“When we first started dating in the late ’70s, he was fascinated and obsessed with Charles Manson,” Sondra revealed. “He couldn’t talk enough about it.” Playboy photographer Sharmagne Leland-St. John-Sylbert reveals that Hefner even had the Manson’s home videos as part of his film collection, videos that were taken before the Tate-LaBianca murders.

The Federal Bureau of Investigations is looking into whether one company falsified millions of COVID tests around the country.

The FBI on Saturday raided the corporate headquarters of a nationwide chain of COVID testing sites known as the Center for COVID Control.

The company, which is headquartered in Rolling Meadows, Illinois, received $124 million from the federal government in insurance reimbursements.

“The FBI was conducting court-authorized law enforcement activity in Rolling Meadows yesterday,” FBI spokesperson Siobhan Johnson told USA TODAY. Johnson works out of the FBI field office in Chicago.

He didn’t say what they were searching for, but rumors are rampant on social media that millions of COVID test results were falsified at sites around the country.

Annie Thompson, a spokesperson for the Illinois Attorney General’s Office, said the attorney general “is absolutely committed to protecting residents from those who attempt to profit off of the deadly COVID-19 pandemic.”

Testing sites in the Bay Area and Miami were shut down After multiple news outlets reported questionable test results.

Hundreds of people complained about conflicting test results at the same testing site on the same day in the Bay Area.

At its peak, the company collected more than 80,000 tests per day, according to Yahoo! News.

Meanwhile, Akbar Syed and his wife, Aleya Siyaj, the couple who own the company, flaunted their newfound wealth on social media.

Yahoo News profiled Akbar and Aleya in an article titled “How a wedding photographer and a donut shop owner got millions in a COVID testing operation now under investigation.”

On their now deleted social media pages, Syed, 35, and Aleya, 29, shared photos of two Lamborghinis, a Ferrari Enzo and their lavish $1.36 million mansion in Saint Charles, Il.

“Countach added to my collection,” Syed wrote in the caption of photo showing a Lamborgini being offloaded from a truck.

“Oil money?” a user asked.

No, “COVID money,” Syed responded.

The company claimed it uses Doctors Clinical Lab to run its tests. But Doctors Clinical Lab is registered at the same address as Center for COVID Control.

The feds are investigating whether the COVID testing lab even exists.
