‘Below Deck’ Alum Nico Scholly Now Happy In Love After Leaving Yatching Life

While Nico Scholly was on Below Deck seasons 4 and 5 as a deckhand besides Captain Lee Rosbach and chief stew Kate Chastain, he didn’t come back for the current sixth season. Nor, it seems, will he return for any future of the hit show.

Back in July, Nico announced that he has left the yachting world and life. Nico admitted that leaving meant giving up some great things like traveling the world but that it also meant leaving behind some “toxicity.” As for what he’s doing now, he didn’t specify but did say that he couldn’t be any happier with his life in Chicago right now.

And a big part of Nico’s happiness is being in a “great and positive” relationship. Check out his photo of him and his girlfriend, Briana.

Nico’s love life was of big interest on Below Deck season 5, due to his fling with second stew Brianna Adekeye despite having a girlfriend, Melissa, back home in Chicago. When the season began, Nico said that he and Melissa were living together. As the season continued and everyone saw his flirtation and subsequent physical relationship with Brianna happen, Nico admitted that his relationship with Melissa was taking a hit. Then, when the season finished airing, Nico revealed that his relationship with Melissa was over.

Lets hope Nico will remain faithful to his current love Briana!

Quad Webb-Lunceford Says Gregory Lunceford Was So ‘Combative’ She Would Have To Escape; Warns People Not Ready For ‘Brutal Honesty’ Of Her Marriage

During her appearance on Andy Cohen’s talk show Watch What Happens Live on Sunday night, Quad Webb-Lunceford shared a disturbing detail about her marriage to Dr. Gregory Lunceford. According to the Married to Medicine star, Greg was so “combative” during their marriage that she would have to escape the house, get in her car and just drive around Atlanta until he was off to work. Quad also claimed that Greg is now lying about their marriage in order to cover up and distract from all of the misdeeds that he did.

When a viewer called in to the talk show and asked Quad if she still talks to Greg, she said that they don’t have any communication except through their lawyers. Quad added that Greg is making their divorce difficult by spreading lies about their marriage.

“I don’t, unfortunately, speak to him. I would like to. I would like for us to come to a [settlement] agreement. However, we just speak through our attorneys. And he decided to do something very ridiculous, like go out on a local radio station and tell a lot of lies. So he broke his silence with a lot of lies. That being said, it made things a little bit harder, that much harder for us.”

Specifically, Quad said that Greg’s claim that they stopped having sex in the second year of their marriage was a lie. While she didn’t go into details about their sex life, she pointed out that she’s a woman in her 30s who obviously would want sex. According to Quad, Greg is painting her in a bad light to cover up for himself.

“What happened in my mind, I said, ‘Oh my God, he’s trying to [retrofit] this. He’s [retrofitting] the situation to cover up for whatever he done along the way.'”

While Quad has been accused by her Married to Medicine co-stars of being secretive and not sharing her issues with them, she readily shared this disturbing detail about her marriage. According to Quad, she would have to flee her home in order to avoid Greg.

“I left my room because he was extremely combative at times. There were times where I would have to literally wake up, he would create an argument, and I would just be like, ‘I’ve got to get out of here.’ I would get out of our room, meaning leaving the house. I would leave the house and just drive around the city of Atlanta ’til about 8:30 when I thought he was off to work. And that’s true tea.”

Quad further warned that people may not be ready to hear the “brutal honesty” of what really went down during her marriage to Greg.

“So people want me to be real. Are you really ready for the brutal honesty of what I have to say? It’s not gonna be me breaking my silence with a lot of lies.”

Wow! What further shocking things do you think Married to Medicine star Quad Webb-Lunceford will reveal about her marriage to Dr. Gregory Lunceford? Do you think Quad is hinting there was verbal and perhaps even physical abuse in her marriage?

Brooke Laughton On Joao Franco Possibly Being a Narcissist

Is Joao Franco a narcissist? It seems that Brooke Laughton is now entertaining the idea that Joao is indeed one.

After the Below Deck Mediterranean season 3 reunion aired on Wednesday night, many viewers took to social media to warn Brooke Laughton to never get back with Joao again. During the reunion show, Brooke revealed that she and Joao had remained in a relationship for several months after filming ended. Yet during their relationship, Joao had continued to flirt with cast mate Kasey Cohen and lied about it. Despite Joao’s proclamation that he still loves Brooke and Kasey telling Brooke that her communications with Joao didn’t mean anything, Brooke made the decision to definitively end the relationship. Joao seemed so broken up over losing Brooke that he broke down in tears and left the stage for a bit.

On Instagram, there were some people who told Brooke to give Joao another chance. Yet there were many more who told her to stay away. One person gave her opinion that Joao is a narcissist.

“rashaver1: @alicehigh5 please go look up the signs of narcissism. Joao is a textbook narcissist who uses his personal abuse as an excuse— he love bombs (grand gestures) and uses triangulations as bait for trapping empathetic women like Brooke. This is a HUGE PSA for women everywhere to learn about this terrible plague in our society. It ruins people’s lives. Brooke should never speak to this guy again.”
The viewer continued pointing out how Joao fits the textbook description of a narcissist.
“rashaver1: @mariam_wana I fell for this s**t for two years with my ex. He went to men’s groups, anger management, therapy and convinced me he’d changed. He pulled me back in and I caught him with another woman after I got home from a vacation he last minute bailed on. He was test driving the new bait. I wasted two precious years of my mid 30s on this person who promised me marriage and babies and dreams. Don’t waste another second. Any of you women reading this. Don’t make this mistake. Know the warning signs. Love bombing. Pointing to childhood abuse as their ‘reason.’ Triangulation. Secretive. Snaps at the smallest differences. Read up. Don’t fall for it.”
Brooke actually responded. She said that she never knew what it meant to be a narcissist but that now after researching it, her mind is blown away.
“brookelaughton: @rashaver1 Jesus, I never actually knew what it meant to be a narcissist before now. Just researched it and it’s pretty mind blowing 😮”
As for whether she will be giving Joao Franco another chance, it seems that is a strong “no.” Ahead of the Below Deck Mediterranean reunion airing, Brooke Laughton wrote on Instagram that she’s excited for the next chapter of her life. She also indicated that she holds no ill feelings towards Joao or Kasey Cohen by stating that she “hold[s] no grudges.”

 

Mercedes ‘MJ’ Javid On Mike Shouhed’s Insinuation That Destiney Rose is Gay

Is Destiney Rose actually gay? Her Shahs of Sunset co-star Mike Shouhed insinuated that during a recent interview on Jeff Lewis’ podcast. Yet according to fellow Shahs star and Mike’s good friend Mercedes “MJ” Javid, Destiney isn’t gay but Mike is somewhat insecure.

During MJ’s appearance on Andy Cohen’s talk show Watch What Happens Live, a viewer called in and brought up how Mike had insinuated on the podcast that Destiney might be gay. MJ denied that Destiney would rather be with women than men.

“I’m really glad that you asked that question. And he should not do that because it’s not her sexual preference and if someone’s sexual preference is, someone says they’re straight, you should respect that.”

MJ further criticized Mike for taking his “joke” too far and explained that it’s his immature way of getting some attention from Destiney.

“And, um, so he’s taking the joke too far because she doesn’t give him enough attention, that’s his way of getting dealing with it.”

 

On Thursday, Destiney posted a very sexy photo of herself sitting in bed in lingerie.

In response, her co-star and good friend Golnesa “GG” Gharachedaghi joked that she thinks she’s turning into a lesbian.

“gg_golnesa: Godddddd daaaaaaaaaamn! I think im a lesbian!”

Perhaps with a hint of desire, Mike Shouhed also praised Destiney Rose’s looks.

“mikeshouhed: Look how sexy the “relationship expert” looks 🤦🏻‍♂️😩😭♥️”

 

 

 

Jubilee Sharpe On Leaving ‘BIP’ After John Graham’s Rejection

Jubilee Sharpe’s return to Bachelor in Paradise looked promising after she went on a good date with John Graham and John later gave her his rose instead of to Caroline Lunny. Unfortunately for viewers who liked seeing Jubilee and John together and hoped to see their relationship grow, not long after Caroline went home, Jubilee herself left paradise. Even worse for her fans, the show hardly gave any attention to her departure. Viewers got just a few seconds of footage of John telling Jubilee that he wants to just be friends and Jubilee leaving with her suitcase. There was no footage of Jubilee explaining why she decided to leave Paradise despite the fact that she already had a rose and thus was safe from elimination for at least another week. Was she so heartbroken from John’s rejection that she didn’t want to wait around to see if any other men would show up?

A viewer asked Jubilee why she left via Instagram despite John’s rejection considering the fact that she already had a rose.

“kimsaff: Just because John didn’t see anything happening doesn’t mean you had to leave? You had a rose. Why didn’t you stick around to see if you had a connection with someone else?”

With her response, Jubilee gave John a bit of a dig. It seems that she didn’t want to just keep going on dates with people like how viewers are seeing John do now. Jubilee explained that she “didn’t want to turn into a ‘John.'” She added that “that’s not [her] style.”

“jubilee1991: @kimsaff because I didn’t want to turn into a ‘John.’ That’s not my style🤷‍♀️🙈”

 

On the last Bachelor in Paradise episode, after Jubilee Sharpe’s sudden departure, John Graham went on a date with newcomer Olivia Goetals. John’s decision to go on a date with Olivia disappointed Chelsea Roy.  After all, she had just sent home Benoit Beausejour-Savard, who was smitten with her, by giving her rose to John instead of Benoit. Not surprisingly, John has taken some heat from viewers over his behavior. Instead of getting his feathers ruffled though, he’s taking the criticism in stride. Just take a look at his response to someone who actually told him on Instagram that she “f**king hates [his] ass” and that he needs to leave paradise for the sake of others.
“ximi.nataly: I F**KING HATE YOUR ASS LIKE LEAVE PARADISE PLEASE FOR THE SAKE OF OTHERS”
“johngraham262: @ximi.nataly THANK YOU FOR YOUR ENLIGHTENING FEEDBACK”

 

Are ‘Shahs of Sunset’ Shervin Roohparvar And Annalise Carbone Still Dating? Shervin Gives Update

Are Shervin Roohparvar and Annalise Carbone still dating? On Shahs of Sunset season 6, Shervin’s relationship with Annalise was a major story line. Annalise, a model from Australia, was set to move to Los Angeles to be with Shervin. Yet some of Shervin’s co-stars questioned Shervin’s commitment and loyalty to Annalise. Annalise, however, dismissed the rumors of Shervin being unfaithful to her and didn’t let it bother her, much to the chagrin of some of the Shahs. “That’s my girl!” Shervin said in regards to Annalise sticking by him.

On the premiere of Shahs of Sunset season 7, which aired on Thursday night, not much was said of Shervin’s relationship with Annalise. Shervin is also not a starring cast member this season. So will viewers ever get an answer regarding what happened between Shervin and Annalise?

Thankfully, Shervin did an interview with Brandi Glanville for Brandi’s Unfiltered podcast last moth, during which he provided an update on his relationship. Unfortunately for fans of the couple, Shervin confirmed that they’re now just friends. He said that they took a step back but are still friends.

“Yes I was dating an Australian girl…We’re friends. We still stay in contact but, you know, we’ve kind of taken a little step back.”

Shervin added that it’s difficult to date long distance. It seems that Annalise’s plans to move in with Shervin in Los Angeles never came to be.

“It’s difficult. I mean how are you gonna do that from across the world?”

When Brandi commented that it didn’t make sense to her how the other Shahs were bothered by Shervin and Annalise’s open relationship, Shervin agreed.

“I mean it’s still kind of taboo to be like, ‘Oh I’m in an open relationship’ right? But at the same time that’s reality right?”

So has Shervin Roohparvar moved on from Annalise Carbone to someone else? He confirmed later on in the podcast that he’s dating but has yet to find someone that he wants to be committed to, much less marry. He did say, however, that he wants to have children soon and doesn’t think that marriage is a necessity for that nowadays.

 

Mercedes ‘MJ’ Javid On Mike Shouhed’s Ex Jessica Parido: Viewers Will See Some ‘Jessica Stuff’ On ‘Shahs Of Sunset’ Season 7

Will Jessica Parido make an appearance on Shahs of Sunset season 7? During Reza Farahan and Mercedes “MJ” Javid’s appearance on Andy Cohen’s talk show Watch What Happens Live on Thursday night, after the premiere of Shahs of Sunset season 7, MJ teased that viewers will either see or hear about Mike Shouhed’s ex as the season progresses.

During the after show portion of the talk show, a caller asked Mike and Reza when was the last time they heard from Jessica. Jessica’s last appearance on the show was back in season 5 when she told Mike that she would never get back with Mike after discovering that he had cheated on her during their very short marriage with multiple women.

“Well you’re gonna see some Jessica stuff, right, during the season, so stay tuned for that.”

Considering that Jessica never made an appearance on season 6 and isn’t friends with either her ex or any of his co-stars, it seems safe to say that what MJ meant was that viewers will see flashbacks of Jessica, as they did in season 6, while Mike discusses his failed relationship with Jessica.

The premiere episode of season 7 showed Mike bringing a date, Mona, to a group vacation but then deciding that they weren’t right for one another.

Like Mike Shouhed, it also seems that Jessica Parido is currently single. When last season aired, Jessica flaunted on social media her relationship with celebrity jeweler Greg Yuna. Now, however, Greg, also known as Mr. Flawless, is nowhere to be found on Jessica’s Instagram page.

 

 

Hannah Ferrier Confirms Whether She And Conrad Empson Are Still Together

Are Below Deck Mediterranean stars Hannah Ferrier and Conrad Empson still together? The two struck an unlikely romance early on while filming season 3 but the latest episode showed them breaking up after arguing over 50 euros.

During a night out in town, Hannah became furious after Conrad reminded her about 50 euros that she owed him for cigarettes. Hannah obviously doesn’t believe that a man should ask his girlfriend or even someone he’s just dating to pay him back 50 euros for cigarettes. Yet Conrad didn’t understand why Hannah was so mad and thought that she was overreacting. Hannah bragged about all the things rich men have bought for her in the past and basically admitted that she’s with rich men sometimes for the lifestyle they can provide her. Put off by her behavior, Conrad promptly dumped her. Yet in the preview for next week’s episode, Conrad is shown asking Hannah if they can reconcile, to which Hannah admits that she’s not sure they can.

After the airing of the latest episode on Tuesday night, Hannah appeared on Andy Cohen’s talk show Watch What Happens Live alongside co-stars Kasey Cohen and Jamie Jason. During the after show portion, Hannah revealed whether she and Conrad are still together. A viewer called in and asked Hannah, Kasey and Jamie if any of them are currently in a serious relationship. After some hesitation, Hannah admitted that she’s not.

“No,” she said.

Kasey also said that she’s not while Jamie smilingly revealed that, unlike her two co-stars sitting besides her, she was.

Hannah didn’t criticize Conrad for the end of their relationship however. Earlier in the show, she outright admitted that she overreacted to Conrad asking her for the 50 euros.

“I one hundred percent overreacted.”
Hannah went on to admit that she took out her stress and anxiety on Conrad.
“I think sometimes when you’re going through stress, anxiety, and things like that you tend to take it out on the person that’s closest to you.”
While Conrad was smitten with Hannah, he isn’t sad over the split. In an interview with Bravo, Conrad gave his assessment of what happened with Hannah.
“In my eyes, I’d never choose money over happiness ever, and for the way she reacted to that, I’d say her priorities are completely different to mine…In my eyes, if you owe someone money, you owe them money, no matter if you’re girlfriend or boyfriend or whatever, everything is equal and should be split. She had a different opinion on that one…I get it if you’re getting a gift for someone but it was the arrangement from the outset that I would buy it for her and she would give me the money back. I’m not tight at all, but if you say something you’re gonna do it.”
As for Hannah basically admitting that she’s sometimes with men because of their money, Conrad had this to say:
“The fact that she completely put it out there that she is with guys for their money sometimes, shocked me. And the fact that she had the bollocks to say it out loud, was pretty impressive to say the least. I’ve got my own set of morals, I don’t know about anyone else, but it kind of shocked me.”
Will Conrad Empson and Hannah Ferrier have another big blowup when they gather to film the Below Deck Mediterranean season 3 reunion show? Or will they keep it civil? What do you think?

Joao Franco On Being With Brooke Laughton

On the latest Below Deck Mediterranean episodes, Joao Franco seemed to finally make up his mind between Brooke Laughton and Kasey Cohen, deciding to go with Brooke instead of Kasey. On Tuesday night, Joao and his co-star Colin Macy-O’Toole appeared on Andy Cohen’s talk show Watch What Happens Live. Not surprisingly, the love triangle between Joao, Brooke and Kasey was a big topic of discussion, as was Colin’s unrequited love for  Brooke.
When Andy asked Joao what made him choose Brooke over Kasey, Joao initially blurted out that he still doesn’t know what attracted him to Brooke over Kasey.
“I don’t know. I still don’t know.”
Gee, that wasn’t exactly a love declaration for Brooke now was it? Even Andy was surprised. “Really?” he asked shockingly.
Joao, realizing his mistake, then elaborated that he always wanted to be with someone serious and so when Brooke opened up to him, he made up his mind.
“It got to a point where as soon as Brooke opened up… I always had in my mind that I want to be with someone serious if I were to be with anyone and when Brooke opened up eventually, that was my mind made.”

As for why Colin didn’t speak up to Brooke regarding his feelings for her, Colin admitted that he didn’t think there was much potential for a real relationship in real life.

“I don’t know. I think I was too…I can’t even keep a relationship with a girl the next town over from me. She lives in England, so how was that going to work out? Just thinking long term.”

When Andy asked Colin if he thinks he would have won out over Joao if he had actually told Brooke his feelings for her, Colin pretty much said that she would have gone for any man who paid her any attention.

“I don’t know because I think a pencil could have said something to her and she would have dated that pencil.”

Are Joao and Brooke still together?
About two weeks ago, in response to a Below Deck Mediterranean viewer who had left a comment on one of his photos saying that Brooke looked great in her swimsuit in the latest episode and that she’s Team Brooke, Joao replied that he’s always Team Brooke.
“lizlegene: Brooke rocked that one-piece; Classy ♥️⭐️ #teambrooke”
“joaograntfranco: @lizlegene always #teambrooke 😉”
In the comments of another photo he posted, promoting his and Colin’s WWHL appearance, Joao said that Brooke couldn’t come to support him at his WWHL appearance because of work.
“joaograntfranco: @napolitanovielot brooke’s working and so is my brother otherwise they would have come:( my sister is in school:/ tough being so far away from everyone”
While it’s unclear whether Joao Franco and Brooke Laughton are still in a relationship together, it’s clear that they still have affection for one another. When Brooke posted a photo of herself about a week ago, Joao, who frequently comments on Brooke’s photos, left a comment calling her the most beautiful princess.
“joaograntfranco: The most beautiful Princess 👑❤️”

Caroline Stanbury On Why She And ‘Ladies Of London’ Cast Are Staying Silent On Annabelle Neilson’s Death

*BE SURE TO READ UNTIL THE END FOR AN IMPORTANT UPDATE!*

On Monday came the shocking news that Ladies of London star Annabelle Neilson had died. Immediately, fans of the Bravo show, which wasn’t renewed after season 3, took to social media to see the reactions of Annabelle’s former co-stars regarding her death and to express their condolences. Oddly, none of Annabelle’s co-stars immediately posted a public statement regarding her death.

This doesn’t mean that they don’t care though. After receiving some questions and criticisms, Caroline Stanbury explained why she and the other Ladies of London women, Julie Montagu, Juliet Angus, Caroline Fleming, Marrissa Hermer, and Sophie Stanbury, have so far stayed silent on the tragedy.

In the comments of the latest photo she posted, Caroline revealed that she and the other women are respecting Annabelle’s family’s wish that they remain silent.

“sushigirl07: Wow none of the LOL posted anything about Annabelle? #fairweatheredfriend”
“carolinestanbury: @sushigirl07 they are a private family and we respect their wishes thank you”
“glamlifedolls: @acbrent she don’t seem to care rather post stories from some random airplane and airport……”
“carolinestanbury: @glamlifedolls again this is a private time for her family and not for social media”
“madtax57: Nothing about Annabelle. So self centered. So sad.”
“carolinestanbury: @madtax57 again we are all respecting the wishes of her family thank you”
Caroline thanked those who defended her and her co-stars.
“david212nyc: So sorry for your loss, and it is just a shame that you & your circle of friends are being attacked for being respectful. You are a true friend, and showing your friendship in this moment.💐”
“carolinestanbury:@david212nyc thank you 😘”
“jessicaelize_x: Disgusted people have the audacity to comment on why haven’t you posted. Social media isn’t life.”
“carolinestanbury@jessicaelize_x 😘”
One very famous person, though, has reacted publicly to Annabelle’s death. Model Kate Moss, whom Annabelle described as one of her best friends and like a sister to her, posted a throwback photo of her and Annabelle, with a broken heart emoji as the caption.

A post shared by Kate Moss Agency (@katemossagency) on

How did the 49-year-old Annabelle Neilson die? On Wednesday, Annabelle’s sister said that the family has been told that she died from a heart attack. Annabelle’s sister also asked for privacy.

“Very sadly, we have been informed today that my sister Annabelle, died as a result of a heart attack at home last Thursday. It has come as a complete shock, as she had many plans having recently returned from Spain. My parents and I are devastated and shocked by this news. We would ask the media to respect the privacy of our family and Annabelle’s close friends during this very difficult time. We will not be making any further statement at this time. We thank you for your consideration.”

By Wednesday evening, most of Annabelle’s Ladies of London co-stars had posted a tribute to her on their Instagram pages. Check here for a roundup of their tributes. Interestingly, Julie Montagu, whose previously close friendship with Annabelle deteriorated by the end of season 2, has yet to publicly comment on Annabelle’s death, though she did just put up a post about really needing a hug for personal reasons.
