I'm completely heartbroken!
My season-long favorite met an ignominious end Wednesday night on Survivor. Horse trainer LJ thought he was holding the reins in a six-person alliance. But "construction worker" Tony sent him out to pasture.
Who knew mug shots could be so glam?
After an arrest warrant was issued for The Real Housewives of Atlanta's Porsha Williams, the reality star promptly surrendered late Wednesday at the Fulton County jail, where she smiled for a flattering mug shot before posting $2,000 bail.
"Porsha turned herself in and was processed and released yesterday. She is doing fine and back in the studio today," her rep told PEOPLE in a statement Thursday.
American Idol's Top 7 turned the tables on one another Wednesday night, with each competitor picking a song for another finalist.
Demi Lovato even stopped by to tout her tour and serve as a pseudo-mentor and judge.
Jena Irene (sporting new Lea Michele bangs) stole the night with her emotionally powerful rendition of "Creep" (chosen by Caleb Johnson so she could "turn it into a big, beautiful theatrical rock song"), which she did, earning a standing ovation from Keith Urban and Jennifer Lopez (clad in a backless, DayGlo yellow leather dress).
Police have issued an arrest warrant for Real Housewives of Atlanta's Porsha Williams after her altercation with costar Kenya Moore during the show's reunion special.
Williams, 31, is being charged with battery after brawling with Moore, 43, during the March 27 taping. She will surrender to the Fulton County jail on Thursday, her attorney tells PEOPLE.
"We anticipate that she will post a bond and be released shortly thereafter," Joe S. Habachy says in a statement. "She is charged with one misdemeanor count of simple battery. … Cast member Kenya Moore sought out the warrant and, although the claim is unfounded, Ms. Williams is fully cooperating with investigators and looks forward to clearing her name."
The Real Housewives of Orange County star Tamra Barney is speaking out after ex-husband Simon Barney alleged in court documents that the reality star has been neglectful when it comes to caring for their three children.
"I am saddened by the false stories my ex-husband has released," Tamra tells PEOPLE exclusively. "He has no foundation to his allegations and in my opinion will do anything to destroy me. Unfortunately, he is hurting our children and my family in the process."
In the documents filed March 28 and obtained by RadarOnline, Simon alleges that "especially in recent times, Tamra has been very neglectful in her care for the children. This has resulted in the children not getting prompt medical care, nutritional meals, hygienic care, and deterioration in their school work and attendance."
Ramona, the "Lion Queen"?
Ramona Singer returned to The Real Housewives of New York City after taking her daughter to South Africa as a high school graduation gift – and she was ready to rule over the pack.
"Now that Ramona's back from vacation, she's the Dalai Lama," joked Sonja Morgan.
"I return from vacation, and they're acting like lions," Singer said of the feud between Aviva Drescher and Heather Thomson that began over Bookgate. "I want to resolve this. I want to be peacemaker."
Sharing the intimate moments of their life with the world is nothing new for Tori Spelling and Dean McDermott, but electing to film a docuseries about McDermott's cheating scandal and stint in rehab has surprised even their closest friends.
"The decision to do this show is not coming from someone who is in a solid, good place. Tori is very, very upset and angry," a longtime friend of Spelling's says in this week's issue of PEOPLE. "It's just too raw and personal. There's too much pain and it's too private."
Adds the source: "A part of her wants to completely humiliate him and make him suffer in front of millions of people. She wants to have some sort of justice. She wants him to truly feel the pain of what he did to her."
Get ready for 12 more episodes of tough parenting and quick wit: Chrisley Knows Best has been renewed for a second season, USA Network announced Monday.
Though the show has blown up since premiering in March – the April 8 episode boasted ratings of 1.25 million viewers – "patriarch of perfection" Todd Chrisley promises fame won't change the wacky family dynamics fans have grown to love.
"I don't think that there's any subjects that are going to be off-limits with us, because I don't think we can parent our children effectively if we're not honest and current with every situation that's going on in our life," the Atlanta millionaire tells PEOPLE.
