EMPLOYMENT SEARCH UPDATE:

Will ‘Riverdale’ Season 3 Be a Teen Courtroom Drama?

Riverdale showrunner Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa tweeted an illustrated title page of the first script of Season 3 last month that shows we will definitely see Archie in court next year. The red-headed hero will be defending his innocence in the murder of Cassidy Bullick, a violent crime that occurred back in the middle of last season while Archie, Veronica, Betty, and Jughead took a salacious trip to “Lodge Lodge” at Shadow Lake.

Cassidy was the flirty cashier at the convenience store who later showed up with his crew to rob the lodge. Archie chased him down, and then Hiram’s hitman, Andre, took over. We are led to believe that the gunshot heard off-screen was Andre killing Cassidy. That was an awfully dark weekend for some teenagers to experience. But Cassidy was never mentioned again, at least not until right after Archie threatened Hiram. Next thing we know, Archie is arrested for the murder in the Season 2 finale. C’mon, Hiram! But just how long will this drama play out?

A full season of courtroom drama worked out well for the second season of Netflix’s high school series 13 Reasons Why. Will Riverdale take the same route, or will they wrap up this cliffhanger obstacle in just a few episodes?

What About The Other Riverdale Residents?

With Archie tied up in the courtroom, more focus can be placed on the other characters, including Toni Topaz and Reggie Mantle, whose portrayers have been upgraded to series regulars. How would their storylines build? Toni is the only part of Cheryl Blossom’s life that makes any sense to her, and we love that. We are definitely hoping for a lot more development with that love story.

Meanwhile, having been dubbed in the classic comics as “Archie’s Rival,” we hope to see Reggie taking full advantage of Archie’s dilemma by trying to take everything he can from Archie … maybe even Veronica?


Issue #9 of “Archie’s Rival Reggie” 1953

Let’s not forget our friend Kevin Keller. With Midge Klump sadly gone, the confused Moose Mason might finally be ready to pursue Kevin for real. Remember that passionate kiss?


Casey Cott and Cody Kearsley in ‘Riverdale’

But we also ought to talk about Polly Cooper, Betty’s big sister. Prior to Archie’s arrest at the end of the season, so much was going down with the Chic mystery and Penny Peabody and the Black Hood and Cheryl’s family dysfunction and the gang war ignited by Hiram Lodge … (pause for breath) … that we have completely glossed over the fact that Polly had been off with her newborn twins living with a cult, simply referred to as “the farm.” Or is it “The Farm?” It will be time to explore that storyline, because while she referenced being done with “The Farm,” she also offered to help her rattled mother, Alice, by introducing her to a friend from “The Farm” who healed her. This will definitely get bonkers.


Tiera Skovbye as Polly Cooper

And what about the oft-mentioned but never-yet-seen Jellybean Jones, Jughead’s little sister? In the comic books, she was also mentioned entirely more than she was actually seen, but whenever the precocious toddler did appear, it was just darling.

It’s been rumored that by the end of the new season, we’ll get to meet Jellybean, as well as their mother. We can probably assume that Jellybean will NOT be a toddler and that her character might lead to the introduction of some other younger characters in Jellybean’s grade. Jellybean and her mother will also surely create drama surrounding the reignited relationship between FP Jones and Alice. We think Jughead’s mother might be a bit unhappy with this development.


Jughead and Jellybean Jones

To add even more tension, maybe Chic and Charles Smith are both still alive? Stranger things have happened. There’s a really good chance that Chic will reappear. We never saw him actually get caught by the Black Hood, and his name was not mentioned in Hal Cooper’s confession. And since Charles is the lovechild of FP and Alice, which makes him the shared half-brother of Bughead, exaggerations of his death would surely add a new layer to Betty and Jughead’s relationship. Betty may be Jughead’s Serpent Queen, mirroring FP and Alice’s high school relationship, but maybe their family ties are just too convoluted for their romance to last.

Lastly, Veronica now owns Pop’s Chocklit Shoppe, and is cut off from her family’s fortune. Could this contribute to a strain in her relationship with Archie? Is she equipped to run a business, excel in high school, and continue dating the boy who serves as the source of all the problems in her family life?

Whether Archie is in court for a full season or just a few episodes, one thing is certain: the drama outside the courtroom is never-ending.

FASHION DEAL UPDATE:

Iceland’s Big Loss to Nigeria Just Pushed the World Cup Drama to 11

On Friday morning, nearly 200 fans of Iceland’s World Cup soccer team — some natives of Reykjavik and other parts of the sparsely populated North Atlantic nation, others firmly seated on the Viking bandwagon — gathered in a cramped space in a midtown Manhattan pub. Dressed in their blue Iceland shirts, they were ready to cheer their country’s soccer miracle onto the next round. With a win over Nigeria, Iceland would almost assuredly advance to the knockout stage.

The fans sipped on their cold Einstök ale, while chanting “ĺs-land! ĺs-land!” (Pronounced “Eees-land!). The sounds of the Viking clap bounced around the bar.

But then Iceland met Ahmed Musa.

The Nigerian forward, who plays for Leicester City in the English Premier League, scored a pair of exquisite second-half goals against Iceland in Russia, giving Nigeria a 2-0 win over the World Cup underdog darlings and reviving the African nation’s chances of reaching the knockout stage for the second consecutive tournament. Nigeria’s victory also gave underachieving Argentina, home of the legendary Lionel Messi, a puncher’s chance of saving its own World Cup campaign.

Iceland had its chances in the first half, dominating play but failing to convert its free kicks and long passes into a goal. Nigeria didn’t even take a shot on goal in the first half. In the 49th minute, however, with the score tied at 0-0, Musa took a cross, touched it onto the grass and fired it into the net off a short-hop. Then in the 75th minute, Musa outran an Iceland defender down the side of the field, moved with the ball into the middle, then dribbled around Iceland keeper Hannes Thor Halldórsson — making Halldórsson look comically slow in the process — before knocking in his second goal.

A penalty shot in the 83rd minute offered Iceland a speck of hope. But Iceland’s most technically gifted player, Gylfi Sigurdsson, sailed his shot comfortably over the crossbar, knocking the air out of Iceland’s chances and out of the New York fan pub, where Iceland supporters buried their heads in their hands.

Nigeria’s win gives Group D of the World Cup, already one of the tournament’s most intriguing combinations, extra drama going into the last game of the opening round. Croatia, with a 2-0 victory over Nigeria last week and a 3-0 stunner over Argentina on Thursday, has already clinched a spot in the knockout stage. Nigeria, with three points thanks to the win over Iceland, faces Argentina, which has a point due to its draw with Iceland last week, on Tuesday. If Nigeria beats Argentina, the Super Eagles advance — and knock Argentina, finalists at the 2014 World Cup in Brazil, out of the tournament. If Argentina wins and Croatia beats or draws with Iceland on Tuesday, Messi still has a chance to win his first World Cup, despite Argentina’s dysfunction in the first two games of the group stage.

Iceland’s still alive, but needs a win and either Argentina to draw with Nigeria, or for Argentina to beat Nigeria, but by not too many goals. Goal differential is the first group stage tiebreaker, and at this point Iceland has given up two more goals than it has scored, while Argentina is facing a three-goal deficit.

Got all that?

As Iceland has discovered in its World Cup debut, this tournament’s an emotional ride. Your country’s fate, for good or ill, can change in an instant. Still, after the disappointment of the Nigeria game, the Iceland pub in New York was far from somber. “We’ve still got a shot,” said Hlyur Gudjonsson, Icelandic Trade Commissioner to North America and the Consul General for New York, New Jersey, Connecticut and Rhode Island. Sure beats the alternative.

Why the Most Compelling Drama at the World Cup Might Be Off the Field

The decision by FIFA, the body that governs international soccer, to award the 2026 World Cup to the combination of the United States, Canada and Mexico instead of Morocco — a nation widely considered unqualified to host the tournament — was a huge relief to many people who love the game. They had feared that the vote, which took place in Moscow, would once again prove an international embarrassment to the sport.

By placing the tournament in the U.S., FIFA will actually be entering the turf of its most damaging rival. Just over three years ago, the United States Department of Justice shocked the world by initiating a pre-dawn raid in Zurich, and arresting several international soccer officials. To date, nearly four dozen people have been indicted in the case for exchanging hundreds of millions of dollars in bribes. Many once untouchable administrators have been banned from the sport, including longtime FIFA president Sepp Blatter. And countless fans have had to confront the grim knowledge that rampant corruption has seeped into the game they loved. Their stomachs will not be settled this summer.

Following the purge of the corrupt leadership, soccer’s new bosses immediately declared a “new era.” They loudly condemned their predecessors. They made a show of promising to deliver a degree of transparency that seemed radical when compared to the sport’s four-decade financial black box. “You will be proud of FIFA,” the shiny-headed Swiss, Gianni Infantino, pledged soon after being elected the institution’s first new president in nearly 20 years.

But if there’s one takeaway from the sweeping corruption case, it’s that the problems afflicting a multi-billion-dollar enterprise that has operated without anything resembling oversight for decades turn out to run awfully deep. It’s one thing to bust a few crooked officials. It’s quite another to change an entire corrupt culture.

Take the fact that this World Cup is being held in Russia. Defenders of the country’s desire to host note that it has a long soccer history, highlighted by the great Soviet teams of the 1960s and ‘70s. But many questions hang over the 2010 decision to award the tournament to the nation instead of a very eager England — ones that may remain unanswered, as FIFA’s attempt to investigate the choice was stymied when Russia’s bid team claimed that all its computers were destroyed after the vote. FIFA, working on the dubious principle that if there are no records, there is no crime, cleared Russia of any wrongdoing.

As if to thumb his nose at critics, Vladimir Putin last fall made a public show of inviting Blatter to attend the tournament in person — even though FIFA gave Blatter a six-year ban in 2016 from attending any event. Blatter wasted little time in accepting the Russian leader’s offer, and it will be interesting to see where he will be seated at critical matches. Putin is expected to occupy a box with Infantino.

But Infantino’s record isn’t pristine, either. Since taking office in early 2016, Infantino has been the subject of two separate ethics complaints. One involved expense account abuses that included him putting a $ 10,000 mattress for his personal use on FIFA’s credit card; the other, perhaps more worryingly, included allegations that Infantino interfered with attempts to investigate potential corrupt acts. His name popped up in the Panama Papers. He’s repeatedly defended officials under indictment, at one point flying to Brazil for photo ops with the president of that country’s national association — a man so terrified of being arrested that he refuses to leave his own country. More recently, critics have accused Infantino of attempting to disqualify Morocco’s bid to host the 2026 World Cup on nitpicky technical grounds and thus aid the U.S.-Canada-Mexico bid. Infantino, for his part, has admitted he preferred the North American bid, but denied putting a finger on the scales.

The problems are hardly limited to FIFA headquarters in Zurich or, for that matter, Moscow.

Just last week, the Ghanaian government began the dissolution of the nation’s organizing body for the sport after a documentary aired on BBC showed its officials, including its president, repeatedly pocketing cash bribes as large as $ 65,000. In May, South America’s top soccer official, Paraguayan Alejandro Dominguez, shocked the U.S. and Mexico by offering a coveted guest spot in the 2019 Copa América tournament to Qatar’s woeful national team. The decision raised questions about the official’s increasingly cozy relationship with the petroleum-rich nation, which still labors under allegations that it somehow bought the vote awarding it the 2022 World Cup.

Soccer officials — long accustomed to being treated as if they were members of some sort of international aristocracy — like to cast the ongoing U.S. criminal investigation as a macabre conspiracy. They say the Americans have some grudge against the sport — or at FIFA not choosing it to host in 2022 instead of Qatar.

But there was no conspiracy. According to my conversations with people knowledgeable about the inner workings of the case, the prosecutors and special agents who have spent nearly eight years building America’s FIFA investigation never intended to bring down world soccer. They sought to simply cut out the cancerous rot afflicting the sport, believing that doings could actually give FIFA the opportunity to improve in the long term. To that end, the criminal purge wasn’t conceived of as the endpoint, but a small first step.

While FIFA has implemented a number of reforms, its changes so far have been derided as half measures in combatting a deep-seated culture of corruption. Its decision to award the 2026 World Cup to the U.S., Canada and Mexico may have averted another public relations disaster. But three years after the Zurich arrests, there’s still plenty to suggest it’s largely the same old FIFA. And while it may not offer the joy of a beautiful run by Lionel Messi, the ongoing scandal adds another dose of drama to the spectacle, and a measure of shame.

Chloe Bartoli: There’s ‘No Bad Blood’ Between Me and Sofia After Scott Disick Drama 

No drama here. Chloe Bartoli and Sofia Richie have “no bad blood” between them despite their rumored rift over Scott Disick. 

“Me and Sofia are cool,” the 28-year-old stylist told Us Weekly at RDxCaliGirls by Chloe Bartoli for Rocket Dog Launch Party at sbe’s Doheny Room in West Hollywood on Thursday, June 6. “We have no bad blood at all.”

Sofia Richie Scott Disick Relationship Timeline

Disick’s longtime relationship with Kourtney Kardashian, whom he shares three children with, ended in 2015 after he was spotted partying with Bartoli, who he dated in the past.

A source told Us in September 2017 that there was tension between Bartoli and Richie when the 19-year-old model starting dating Disick.

“After Sofia started hooking up with Scott, Chloe stopped speaking to her. It’s a mess,” a source told Us at the time. “They were the best of friends and were inseparable.” The women also unfollowed each other on Instagram at the time.

Bartoli, meanwhile, says thing are good now and explained why Richie often works with her twin sister, Marie-Lou Bartoli, who is also a stylist, instead of her. “She just was more Sofia’s style in the moment, so she went with Sofia and I went more with my other clients,” Bartoli explained. “I didn’t have time for everything.”

“About a year ago we used to work together and it was kind of awesome because every time we had clients, we would see what vibe the client was and we would know which one was going to be more present in that fitting and who was more comfortable in what,” she added about her sister. “And now we stopped working together a year ago just because our styles are very different and she’s doing a line and I’m doing my own thing, so I think it was good that we separated because we have such different vibes, but we’re still great and everything is good.”

Richie and Disick, meanwhile, recently got back together after a brief split. A source told Us earlier this month that the model broke up with the reality star after he was caught getting too close to another women at Kanye West’s album listening party in Wyoming and after he “cheated on her in Miami.” Two days later, the pair reconciled.

“They are now back together and Scott isn’t done with her,” an insider explained to Us on June 4. “Sofia had a strange weekend and Scott and her are working through things.”

Sammi Stirs Up Drama on ‘Jersey Shore’ Premiere Without Even Being There

Is it still a family vacation without the entire family? That was the question during the Thursday, April 5, premiere of Jersey Shore: Family Vacation. Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi, Ronnie Ortiz-Magro, Vinny Guadagnino, Deena Nicole Cortese, Paul “DJ Pauly D” Delvecchio, Jenni “JWOWW” Farley and eventually Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino all reunited in Miami for the revival, and it only took “13 seconds” to bring up Sammi Giancola, the original cast member who turned down making an appearance.

Most of the cast (and fans) assumed it was because she was in a new relationship and didn’t want to live with her ex Ronnie. Right away, Deena revealed she was pretty upset Sam decided not to come. However, since they were so close, the 31-year-old took on the responsibility of defending Sam — that was a pretty big role, though. Little did she know, Pauly D, 37, would bring a Sam doll along that had a sound box inside it so that it could repeats Sam’s famous sayings — you know, like, “Ron, stahp!”

Sammi Giancola Ronnie Ortiz-Magro Jersey Shore

Ronnie, 32, who dated Sammi on and off during the original show and for a bit afterward, admitted he was “so confused” why Sam wasn’t there. He also revealed that after the show wrapped in 2012, the pair dated for a while and moved in together, but she wanted to get married sooner than he did. Once she gave him a timeline, he cheated and they didn’t work out.

It didn’t take long for Deena to get irritated when the entire house started playing with the doll and making jokes. “If I have sex with her, is that still cheating?” Ron asked, picking up the doll. “I’m just carrying her like I did the past seasons.” The rest of the cast seemed to agree that since Sam wasn’t there, making fun of her with the doll was OK.

After a few drinks, Ron brought it up to Deena. “She’s not here. She’s not our friend. She doesn’t have our back,” he told her. “Cause if she did, she’d be here with us. Bottom line. I’m having a motherf—king kid, do you understand? And I’m still here. She’s seven months pregnant. What the f—k does she got going on that’s more important than me?”

Deena claimed Ron felt that way because he was “still not over” Sam. However, it turned out that Deena and Ron’s issues actually went deeper. Their fun drunken night quickly turned into crying next to the pool when Deena revealed Ron was the only cast member who didn’t reach out to her when her dad died 2016, and she was still upset about it.

He felt so bad that he broke down crying as well, saying that Sam came between their friendship and that after his split from her, he was in a bad mental state and was depressed, so he messed up and didn’t reach out to Deena.

The next day, Snooki tried to drown the Sammi doll in the pool. Jersey Shore: Family Vacation airs on MTV Thursdays at 8 p.m. ET.

My 20-Year-Old Just Moved Back After Roommate Drama. How Do I Kick Him Out?


Dear Penny,

My 20-year-old son had been living on his own for about a year when he had some MAJOR roommate drama and had to move back home. Prior to moving home, he had been having money issues, and I had lended him around $ 2,000, of which none has been repaid.

Since he moved home, we’ve discussed that this is a temporary option and he must focus on getting his money together to move out. He’s been paid twice since being home and blown through all of it!

I am trying to help, but he’s just seeing it as nagging and rolls his eyes, which pisses me off. How can I help him without it being just a big fight? I don’t want to have to kick him out, but he’s been living here with meals for free for a month and hasn’t saved a cent! Any books or online classes or support groups you can suggest?
-Wanting My Guest Room Back

I know, I know: You were really excited to be an empty nester, and now this kid is back already?

Since he’s only 20, he gets a pass on the boomerang act. Rumor has it that adolescence lasts until 24 now anyway. Sorry, sorry, sorry.

The safety net you’ve offered, both financial and physical, may be painful for you both now, but it can help prevent worse financial issues down the line. You’d rather have him at home owing you $ 2,000 at age 20 than have him show up at age 29 owing you $ 14,000, right? Right.

How much of your helping has been asking him questions versus lecturing him? He came home as a reprieve from financial stress and roommate stress, and he’s probably still decompressing from both. So it’s time for a softer approach — way softer. Ask him what he’d like to do next or where he sees himself in six months. The answers may surprise you. The answers may surprise him.

But that conversation — let’s be honest, do it over pizza — can help you figure out a plan that works for both of you. If he plans to stay a while, he’ll need to contribute to household expenses and pay back his debts over time. If he wants out, the idea of being ready with a security deposit for a place of his own or anxiety about his existing debt to you may be holding him back from asking you for help or advice.

You’re never going to get your guest room back for real if you don’t plan ahead as a team; you’ll always be nervous that he’ll have another misstep and boomerang right back to your place. Again.

Your struggling offspring may find solace in this list of money to-dos for twentysomethings. For a budgeting plan that won’t make his eyes glaze over, try the 50/20/30 budget that allows for flexibility in three main categories: essentials, money goals and personal spending.

He’s only 20. He needs a plan and someone he trusts to help him make one. Yes, you will want to put your fist through the dining room table if he rolls his eyes one more time. But if you drop your own attitude and preconceptions for a bit, he may drop his attitude as well. And that’s a good step forward.

‘Rise’ Premiere: Can Lou Save Stanton High Drama or Will it Save Him?

Upon hearing about an opening, Lou Mazzuchelli (Josh Radnor), a teacher who wanted to make a difference, stepped in and volunteered, ultimately taking a job that Tracy (Rosie Perez) thought would be hers — she’s been doing it for 11 years. Not only did he take the job, he took over, scrapping her production of Grease and replacing it with a very controversial Spring Awakening. He also took Gwen (Amy Forsyth) out of the lead role, putting her in a supporting role and giving the lead to new face Lilette (Auli’I Cravalho), a student who’s never acted.

As if she needed another reason to hate Lilette, Gwen also discovered that Lilette’s mother was sleeping with her father, the football coach — and may be the reason for their marriage dissipating. For the male lead, Lou found Robbie Thorne (Damon J. Gillespie), a.k.a. QB 1. By “found,” I should say “forced,” as Robbie was failing a class — which meant he’d be ineligible to play. So Lou agreed he’d let him play if he auditioned.

Lilette and Robbie had more in common than met the eye. After school, before football, Robbie took care of his mother, who is sick and living in a facility. Meanwhile, Lilette worked as a diner waitress with her mother, struggling to pay the bills. Everyone on the show had things going on at home, including Lou, whose son Gordy was struggling with an alcohol problem. To make matters at home even more complicated, Lou brought home Maashous (Rarmian Newton), a foster kid he found living in the auditorium.

And then there was Simon (Ted Sutherland), who was used to playing the lead but instead would be playing Hanschen in Spring Awakening, a gay character who shares a kiss with a man on stage. At first, Simon protested, explaining he wasn’t gay but ultimately Lou convinced him he had the acting skills to play the powerful role. However, Simon’s parents were not at all OK with it. It’s likely they also wouldn’t be OK with Michael (Ellie Desautels) joining the show — an openly transgender, extremely talented teen boy.

However, Simon’s parents weren’t the only ones having issues with the content of Spring Awakening. After the principal read the show, he wasn’t OK with the controversial topics either. He replaced it with Pirates of Penzance, stating they couldn’t afford Grease and already had costumes for Pirates, plus Tracy had to take over. Also, he demanded that Robbie played football and did not participate. Luckily for Lou, no one else felt that way.

The episode ended with Tracy and the entire troupe — Robbie included — burning the Pirates props and costumes in the parking lot where they delivered a message to both the coach and the principal: they wanted Lou, they wanted Spring Awakening and Robbie wouldn’t be playing football if he couldn’t do the show.

Adam Rippon Is Not Coming For Johnny Weir’s Gig Even Though People Love Ice Drama

The 2018 PyeongChang Olympics might be over, but that doesn’t mean that the action has stopped for Adam Rippon.

The Team USA figure skater quickly won the hearts of viewers everywhere when he made his Olympic debut this year, which led to rumors that commentator (and former Olympian) Johnny Weir was not happy with all the attention that Rippon’s vivacious personality was commanding.

During an interview on Watch What Happens Live With Andy Cohen, a viewer called in to ask Rippon if there was any truth to the rumors — and the answer did not disappoint.

“Um, maybe,” Rippon said. “I think maybe. But you know what? I’m not coming for his job. I’m not coming for his gig.”

Rippon also pointed out that Weir helped the pave the way for him as an athlete.

“We didn’t really have any interactions,” he said. “Like, we’ve always reached out to each other, and I’ve always, liked, thanked him because I kind of feel like, he kind of, like, helped make my way a little bit easier.”

She will star in the pilot for an untitled drama that has been in development on “the lives of five African-American sisters, all officers in the NYPD, as they face the challenges of their high-risk jobs while juggling the responsibilities of marriage, motherhood and family.”  It is based on the real-life story of the Holmes sisters, who Roberts covered for GMA.

Campbell-Martin joins Underground’s Amirah Vann, the first sister who was cast.  Veasey writes the pilot and King directs.

[Campbell-Martin’s] character is Sergeant Anise Kendrick-Morrison, “a witty, tough, and outspoken Patrol Officer with a sharp sense of humor. She is immensely proud of her family, especially her four sisters who are all in the NYPD. The first to join the force, she proudly patrols her own childhood neighborhood in Queens.”

Known primarily for her comedic work alongside her considerable singing and dancing talents, this dramatic role is a departure for Campbell-Martin, allowing fans to see her tackle different material.

As for the heavily rumored and heavily implied Martin reboot, the cast is still playing coy with fans and not confirming or denying anything. However, the remaining cast members recently joined together on stage when Martin received an award at the recent ABFF Honors.

Comedians Cocoa Brown, Sherri Shepherd, and Kym Whitley know each other all too well. Well enough that they can fight each others battles when the other isn’t there to do it. Fights like cussing out one of their baby daddies for more child support.

Brown is currently starring in a new show on Fox called 9-1-1 where she plays nurse Carla Price. “I’m on 9-1-1 on Fox. We got renewed for a second season two episodes in,” expressed. But she credits her team for being able to do what she does.

“If it wasn’t for my team. I went through a whole situation throughout the beginning of the year where I had to get rid of all the team that I had for the last 3-4 years,” expressed Brown. “There were too many Judas’ in the room.”

But she’s thankful for the people that she has surrounding her now.

‘Homeland’ battles on, as reality catches up with Showtime drama

As “Homeland” embarks on its seventh season — with the end of its planned eight-year run drawing nearer — it’s worth remembering how brightly the Emmy-winning show once flamed. Against that backdrop, the Showtime drama remains plenty watchable with its cloak-and-dagger machinations, but it’s hard to envision anyone lamenting that the finale came too soon.

Teen Mom Star Javi Marroquin Shares Apology to Ex-Wife Kailyn Lowry for Briana DeJesus Drama

Javi Marroquin is making amends with his ex-wife Kailyn Lowry, and he wants everybody to know about it.

On Saturday, the Teen Mom 2 star announced that he had apologized to Lowry for all the drama that occurred after he visited ex-girlfriend and costar Briana DeJesus in Miami.

“At the end of the day a good relationship with my sons mother will make Lincoln the happiest. I lost sight of that. This trip made me realize that and I’ve apologized to kail for my actions,” Marroquin wrote on social media Friday.

Showing that she accepted his apology, Lowry retweeted his message.

The formerly married couple co-parent their 4-year-old son Lincoln.

Although neither Marroquin nor Lowry has gone into detail about what happened during his visit with DeJesus as she underwent a series of plastic surgery procedures, he told RadarOnline, “I should’ve never went. I should’ve went to LA like I was supposed to. We broke up for a reason and yesterday reassured me that.”

Seemingly addressing the drama on social media Lowry wrote, “Everyone’s asking where the tea is at but javis been through enough so I’m not gona put him through more s—”

RELATED VIDEO: Teen Mom 2 Star Briana DeJesus Announces Split from Javi Marroquin

Marroquin’s apology comes just a week after DeJesus slammed her ex-boyfriend after he appeared on Lowry’s podcast with Lindsie Chrisley Coffee Convos and discussed their split.

Lowry, who filed for divorce from him in 2016 after almost three years of marriage, began the episode by asking Marroquin if it was true that he and DeJesus had broken up.

“As of right now it is,” he said, referring to the pair’s separation. “I don’t know what the future holds. There is a lot we have to discuss and talk about before we make any other decisions.”

But in a series of now-deleted tweets, DeJesus took aim at Lowry for seemingly attempting to cool down the tension between them and then going back on her words.

“1) Do not ever call my phone at 7am talking about we need to leave social media alone when it comes to our issues but you are the 1st one to use my name to gain listeners…2) don’t you ever text my man about me and think hes ok to bad mouth me cause thats when the line gets crossed,” DeJesus tweeted. “Don’t sit 15 feet away from me and talk s— indirectly cause I’ll approach u just like I did and do go crying in ur dressing room cause u couldn’t handle my mouth.”

“I am not the common denominator as to why y’all fail to co parent so don’t ever use my name in that matter again… and you are right, I’ll never say sorry cause I am not the one who started all this mess… you use ur kids as pawns and that is not my fault but ur own selfish reasoning’s.”

DeJesus also addressed Marroquin’s comments about not being sure “what the future holds” for them.

“Don’t say u don’t know what the future holds to someone but in my msgs saying u wanna marry me,” she wrote. “I don’t do that fake — say its about the kids but in reality u only care about ur feelings and not anyone elses… including ur kids.”

The Florida native also blamed Marroquin and Lowry for beginning their feud by mentioning her in Lowry’s podcast.

“I look like the crazy one now but just remember I tried to keep it off social media… u bitches so quick to call lawyers when they can’t handle the heat that they turned on… I am not the reason as to why people can’t get along… u left ur saltiness get in the way and now looks where u are.”

She added, “Call me ratchet, trashy all you want but don’t mention my name again and there will be no issues… U NOT KIM K SO SLOW UR ROLL… AND DONT SIT HERE TRYNA PLAY MIND GAMES WHEN THE REAL REASON WHY WE ARE HERE IS BECAUSE OF UR..JAVI.”

https://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js

Marroquin responded on Twitter, writing, “come on, you’re better than this. I know a different bri so i’ll never turn my back on you like I promised. you don’t do fake s— but you’re on here…you have my number, we’ve always talked about everything.”

https://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js

https://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js

Lowry also seemingly responded, tweeting, “When you block their number and get a ‘llamame conyo’ email,” along with laughing and coffin emojis. She added, “Is mercury in retrograde or.”

Marroquin addressed the tension between Lowry and DeJesus on the podcast saying he was “trying to learn from my mistakes and not repeat those mistakes moving forward. I’m not gonna mix that.”

He also said he hoped the trio could all get along if he and DeJesus did reunite.

Lowry, on the other hand, thought differently: “It would never happen. We would never get along. You allowed her to disrespect me to my face, also on camera, also in text messages.”

She continued, “When I said what I had to say in a nice way, you defended her and not me. We raise a son together, you don’t raise a son with her.”

The Shutdown Drama in D.C. Was Beijing’s Cup of Tea

Damir Sagolj/Reuters

HONG KONG—It’s a weird day when you find yourself agreeing with the Chinese Communist Party’s shills.

As funding for American federal agencies ran out on Friday, and members of Congress could not reach an agreement to develop a stopgap bill until Monday, Chinese state-run Xinhua News Agency was sharing photographs of signs that showed closures at the Statue of Liberty and the Library of Congress.

But there are some nuances. In 2013, when the U.S. government suffered a similar experience there was plenty of gloating and smirking in Beijing. Not so this time around. The reactions have been sober, well thought out, measured—it’s almost like the People’s Republic is finding its footing, and the Party’s spin doctors are figuring out how to communicate with people beyond the Nine-Dash Line.

Chrissy Teigen, John Legend Finally Arrive in Tokyo After Flight Drama

The Legends have landed! Chrissy Teigen took to Twitter to tell fans that she and husband John Legend have finally arrived in Tokyo after their “flight to nowhere.” 

“We are HERE!” the 32-year-old pregnant model tweeted on Wednesday, December 27.

As previously reported, Teigen and Legend boarded a flight on Tuesday, December 26, and expected to land in Tokyo, but instead, eight hours later, they ended up back at Los Angeles International Airport after the crew believed an unauthorized passenger was on board. The couple, who are parents to 1-year-old daughter Luna, boarded another flight to Tokyo on Wednesday.

“We uhhhhh went ahead and cancelled our connecting flight to nagoya and 3 hour car ride for…obvious reasons…but are happy to stay here in Tokyo!” Teigen added in another tweet. “We feel like young lovers again. Been a while since the ramen adventures of 2012!” 

The Cravings author hilariously live-tweeted the flight and the hours she spent at LAX waiting to take off for a second time. 

“Lmao after all this I will have spent 8 hours on a flight to nowhere,” Teigen wrote on Tuesday. “Like we were all just havin a great time up here flyin in the sky watching gran torino time to go home now.” 

“I don’t know why I’m not more upset about this. The pleasure I get out of the story is worth more to me than a direct flight to Tokyo,” she added.

After passengers were questioned by the police, Teigen wrote she was “moved to a room with Bravo” in the airport. 

“I have been moved to a room with Bravo,” she captioned picture of a TV playing The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. “Clearly the authorities are trying to keep me quiet so I don’t BLOW THE LID OFF THIS ‘SITCH.’”

All Nippon Airways apologized to passengers in a statement on Wednesday via Twitter: “We apologize to all of our passengers on Flight 175; we failed to deliver the customer service we strive for. Thank you all for your comments and allowing us to connect, learn and serve you better. We welcome ongoing feedback to understand how we can work to make this right.”

Teigen was less than impressed with the apology and responded to the airline’s tweet.

 “Honestly everyone on the ground and in the air were very kind and apologetic,” Teigen wrote on Wednesday. “But I just need to know why we couldn’t have flown to tokyo and settled this one person’s mistake (who was going to tokyo all along) there, in tokyo. 230 people on this flight.”

Nathan Griffith and Girlfriend Break Down ‘Teen Mom 2’ Reunion Drama

Nathan Griffith and girlfriend Ashley Lanhart are speaking out about what happened with Jenelle Evans following the taping of the Teen Mom 2 reunion on Saturday, October 21.

In a 12-minute Periscope video titled “Unsealed files of the biggest lies on planet Earth,” Griffith explains his side of the fight that happened backstage. Immediately, he brought up his ex-fiancée’s claim that Lanhart “attacked” Evans, something he calls “a straight lie.”

He went on to explain that his girlfriend has not agreed to film, nor has she signed any release forms, but after the show she was backstage waiting for him. When she met up with him in the hallway, Evans, 25, began following them and then yelled, “I thought you didn’t want to film, bitch.”

Lanhart also got on the Periscope video, revealing that when Evans was yelling at her, she turned around and introduced herself, since they never had formally met. “I stopped, and said, ‘Hi, Jenelle, I’m Ashley. You haven’t met me either, but you think you know everything about me.’ It just transpired from there,” she said. “I never attacked her. I never called her any names, I didn’t cuss her out. Yes I raised my voice, but she was doing all the attacking. It’s pretty sad when even the producers that don’t know me, are in my room, on my side because they know how much drama she has. She’s just so dramatic.”

The couple also said during the Periscope that when they went back to their room, Evans tried pushing her way in — so much so, that Griffith asked security for help, but they didn’t do anything. “It’s just bull crap. They portray me a certain way, as this violent, woman beater,” he said. “But when a man needs help, [and] says, ‘I need this threat away from me and my child,’ and they don’t help me out, they feed in to the drama instead, it’s just really piss pore on MTV’s behalf. They won’t protect me or protect the children like I needed protecting that day.”

Regardless, Griffith’s girlfriend said she has no bad feelings toward Evans. “She’s Kaiser’s mother, I have no problem with her. I would love for her and Nathan to coparent together,” she said, adding she’d be happy to step back in that aspect. “Kaiser is the sweetest little thing ever and he just needs love.”

Griffith doesn’t seem to be so cordial. “I’m sick of Jenelle’s lies. It’s ridiculous,” he exclaimed. “She needs to be drug test. She needs to take responsibility for thee children and she needs to start being an involved parent that doesn’t worry about herself.”

Griffith also thanked costar Chelsea Houska for helping moving the kids out of drama. Houska’s dad Randy stood behind Kaiser’s dad’s video. “Just watched bunch of videos(both sides)Everything I saw went exactly as @GroundLevelUp described it. We were stuck right in the middle of it,” he wrote. “Not that I am going to spill stuff out but I just want people to know what is truth and what is not to help prevent rumors.”

Teen Mom 2 airs on MTV Mondays at 9 p.m. ET.

Drama! NeNe Leakes Takes MAJOR Shots at Kim Zolciak for Saying She Lives in a ‘Roach Infested’ Home [Photo]

There’s definite bad blood brewing between NeNe Leakes and Kim Zolciak.

On her way back from the cast trip to Barcelona, NeNe took to Instagram to take several shots at Kim for allegedly making comments about NeNe living in a ‘roach infested’ home.

We’re not sure when Kim’s comments about NeNe’s home were made (since Kim didn’t go on the trip) and NeNe didn’t mention anyone by name in her post — BUT her hashtags made it perfectly clear she’s talking about Kim.

She added:

#jealousprejudicebitch

#pottymouthtrashychildren — clearly a shot at Brielle Biermann.

#learnedbehavior — again, back to Brielle 

#thisiswhyiwouldntdoashowwithyou — remember when Kim and NeNe announced a spin-off but it never happened? 

Take a look:

Uber hit with even more drama after scandalous lawsuit

TwitterFacebook

Remember #DeleteUber?

So much has happened since people complained about Uber CEO … err rather … former CEO Travis Kalanick being on President Donald Trump’s advisory council and Uber stopping surge pricing during Trump’s travel ban. 

It’s like we can’t go a day without Uber-related drama.

Case in point: On Friday, a group of Uber shareholders requested via a strongly worded email that venture capital firm Benchmark step down from Uber’s board of directors. That news arrived just a day after Benchmark filed a fraud lawsuit against Kalanick, asking a judge to kick him off the board. Read more…
