Brooke Laughton Blasts Joao Franco’s Claim That She Cheated On Him

Did Brooke Laughton really cheat on Joao Franco? After Below Deck Mediterranean season 4 premiered on Monday night, Brooke went on Instagram to blast Joao’s claim that she cheated on him.

On last season’s Below Deck Med, Joao was the bad boy who seemed destined to break Brooke’s heart. Despite warnings from their cast mates and skepticism from the general public, Brooke followed her heart and embarked on a relationship with Joao. For a time, it seemed that the two were proving all their critics wrong, continuing their relationship off-camera after the season ended.

Yet on the season 4 premiere, Joao, who returned for another season alongside Colin Macy-O’Toole and Hannah Ferrier, said that his relationship with Brooke ended because she cheated on him.

Regarding Brooke, Joao said that they  had a serious relationship and they had even met one anther’s families. But then Brooke cheated and didn’t want to work on the relationship.

“Things seemed perfect but I found out she cheated on me…I really really loved her. I really wanted it to work but even so, she didn’t want to, so what can I do?”

After the episode aired, Brooke posted a risque photo of herself and captioned it “Sassy.”

She was definitely sassy in her responses to viewers who questioned her about Joao claim that she cheated. Brooke blasted Joao as someone who’s “not a good person from the core” and quipped that while she didn’t cheat on him, she should have.

“wolfnan99: Who knew you’d turn out to be a cheater!!??

brookelaughton: Consider your source…”

“rezzboy45: But really did you cheat on him or nah.

brookelaughton: @rezzboy45 I should have, but no”

“joddlelynn: @brookelaughton Why did you guys break up?

brookelaughton: @joddlelynn because he is not a good person from the core..”

Joao has since moved on to another love.

Do you really think Brooke Laughton cheated on Joao Franco? Do you think Joao’s new relationship will last?



Danni Baird Shows Proof That Austen Kroll’s GF Madison LeCroy Was Hitting On Her BF Gentry

*Update: See Danni’s tweet at the bottom of the article for an update regarding her relationship with Gentry. Plus, Gentry speaks!

Madison LeCroy really trying to get with Danni Baird’s boyfriend, Gentry Todd, despite the fact that she was already in a relationship with Austen Kroll? According to Danni, Madison really did try to steal her man behind Austen’s back.

After the latest Southern Charm episode aired, in which Craig Conover and and Shep Rose warned Austen about what Madison did, Danni outed Madison on Instagram. Danni made it clear that she was having none of Madison’s denial by posting a snapshot of the text that Craig and Shep warned Austen about.

Danni also warned Madison that she’s not one to mess with a snappy caption.

“Here’s the deal…. Was trying to be a girls girl… but if you wanna play that game…”

Skeptics however may point out that the snapshot really just proves that Madison’s friend sent that text but doesn’t definitely prove that Madison actually wanted to cheat on Austen with Gentry. Maybe Madison made an innocent comment about how attractive Gentry was and Madison’s friend took it too far? Or perhaps this friend, for whatever reason, was trying to stir up drama and/or break up Madison and Austen. According to Madison, she wasn’t actually trying to cheat on Austen.

It’s unclear whether Madison and Austen are even still together, especially since Austen recently put Madison on blast on Twitter after her appearance on Watch What Happens Live. Poor Madison, she’s just getting hit from left and right. It’s also unclear if Danni is still together with this Gentry, since her social media pages show no traces of him.

Do you think Madison LeCroy is good for Austen Kroll? Would you be afraid to be on the wrong side of Danni Baird?

Update: Nope, Danni and Gentry aren’t together.

And here’s Gentry Todd’s side of the story:


Kathryn Dennis On Beau Hunter Price Meeting Ex Thomas Ravenel

The premiere of Southern Charm season 6 showed Kathryn Dennis dealing with the news that her ex and father of her two children, Thomas Ravenel, had been arrested upon allegations of rape from the kids’ former nanny. Kathryn admitted that she was shocked by the news, saddened to see his mug shot and even more shocked that Thomas didn’t tell her the news himself. She also told friend Danni Baird that upon seeing Thomas for the first time after his arrest, for a kid’s doctor appointment, he seemed to be in denial about the serious matter.

Another thing that Thomas apparently was in denial over was knowing about Kathryn’s new relationship with country singer Hunter Price.

On Wednesday nights Watch What Happens Live, Kathryn revealed that Thomas pretended as if he didn’t know who Hunter was upon meeting him at their daughter’s birthday party.

“It was extremely awkward. Thomas knows very much who he is and he walked up to him and said, ‘Who are you? Oh, nice to meet you.’ And that was it. It was at Kensie’s birthday party, and that was that.'”

Kathryn also said that she and Hunter, whom she met on New Year’s, are doing good together but people shouldn’t be expecting a wedding anytime soon.

“It’s good. Everything’s great between us but there are no bells ringing anytime soon for me.”

Now that Thomas Ravenel is out of Southern Charm, perhaps it’ll be Hunter Price we’ll be seeing with Kathryn Dennis? Or do you think Kathryn and Hunter should keep their relationship off of the show?

‘RHOP’ Katie Rost Now In a New Relationship; Living Part-Time In California

Tonight marks the return of The Real Housewives of Potomac. And for the many fans who have stayed with the show since season 1, there was a big surprise when Bravo dropped the trailer for season 4 a few months back: the return of Katie Rost.

Katie made a big splash when she was a starring cast member of the first season cast, famously battling Gizelle Bryant and Robyn Dixon on their racial heritage and trying to get a proposal from her long-time beau Andrew Martin. On the reunion show, sitting next to Karen Huger, Katie dropped the bombshell that she and Andrew, who had finally proposed on the season finale, had broken up, while Gizelle retaliated by claiming that Katie peed on the couch when they were doing a promotional shoot for the show. Since then, Katie has been absent from the show for two seasons.

Not to fear, the trailer for season 4 shows that Katie returns with a big splash, even going so far as getting topless with Ashley Darby. While not a full-time cast member, viewers will see her on the new season in a recurring role. So what has she been up to since season 1?

There has certainly been a lot of drama in Katie’s life. After Andrew, was Jacob, with whom she was expecting a child earlier this year. While she was with Jacob and expecting her fourth child, she publicly claimed that her ex-husband, James Orsini, was abusive, physically, sexually and verbally, to her during their marriage. At the time, Katie and her ex were engaged in a bitter custody battle over their three kids.

Sadly, Katie miscarried the baby. She blamed the miscarriage on the stress over her custody battle with her ex. You can read all of the details on the alleged abuse and their ongoing custody battle here.

After the miscarriage in late February, Katie and Jacob’s relationship ended and she deleted all photos of him from her Instagram account. Now, she’s in a relationship with Jesse, with whom she lives with part-time in California, around Beverly Hills.

Not surprisingly, Katie’s new relationship has drawn some critics. Some have bewildering asked what happened to Jacob and how she could be with a new man so soon after the miscarriage. Yet Katie’s taking the criticism in stride. In response to one person who wrote to her that she doesn’t waste time moving on, Katie said that she “cant stop, wont stop.”


“jenniferf9620: You don’t waste time moving on.

mskatierost: @jenniferf9620 cant stop, wont stop”

Katie’s personal life certainly provides a lot of material for reality TV! Are you excited to see Katie Rost’s return to The Real Housewives of Potomac?

Ashton Pienaar And Laura Betancourt On Being In A Relationship Together

On the Below Deck season 6 finale, Ashton Pienaar and Laura Betancourt left the charter season together. Unfortunately, those hoping to see a romantic relationship between the two of them were disappointed when they later revealed on the reunion show that they aren’t together. On the reunion show, which aired Tuesday night, Ashton and Laura said that they’re just good friends. Yet disappointingly, neither Ashton nor Laura explained what went wrong for them and host Andy Cohen didn’t push for an answer either.

Thankfully, there is an explanation provided on During an After Show interview, posted on after the reunion show aired, Ashton explained that a relationship with Laura never got off the ground simply because of logistics.

“Laura’s a cool chick. I think we’ve got a bit in common, um, in terms of where we are in our lives. She’s just a cool girl to kind of talk to and bounce things off of…Lauren’s a fun girl…but we live in two different countries in opposite sides of the world.”

Teasingly, Ashton said that there’s a possibility that he and Laura may become an item in the future.

“We don’t know where we’ll be in the next few months so…but if I ever ended up in Canada and she ever ended up in South Africa, I’m pretty sure we would, well I don’t know, I’m not sure, it’s hard to say. Is she somebody I could settle down with one day? Probably. If circumstances were different and we could try, give it a shot, would I? Probably.”

Laura, however, seemed less enthused about the idea. When asked if she sees a romantic future with Ashton, Laura hesitated and said she’s not sure.

“Hmmm…I dunno. I dunno…[Laughs] I think with relationships, they should be super passionate from the get go and I think because we’ve had this time apart, it would be hard to kind of get back and also we live very far from each other and so I don’t think…”

Why Ashton and Laura aren’t together, Ashton did share during his Watch What Happens Live appearance a few weeks back that he’s dating someone.

Perhaps Ashton Pienaar and Laura Betancourt will return for Below Deck season 7 and hit it off again? What do you think? Would they make a good couple?

‘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.
“johngraham262: @ximi.nataly THANK YOU FOR YOUR ENLIGHTENING FEEDBACK”
