Vanderpump Rules Editor Fired After Admitting To Vendetta Against Scheana Shay!

The Vanderpump Rules drama continues!!

Bri Dellinger, an editor on the Bravo series, revealed she has been fired by the show after admitting to embarrassing star Scheana Shay.

According to multiple Bravo-focused blogs and fan screenshots, in a since-deleted open letter on the Reality TV Therapist website, Dellinger wrote:

“To any of the cast members who wanted me out: I’m out! To the critics who have made it their mission to get me fired: you succeeded in your short-sighted mission and solved nothing. I’ve been removed from the show I love and, while it is a heart-break for me because I genuinely loved editing this show, it will not ruin me professionally, nor will it change the editing of the show at all.”

This all comes after the Emmy Award nominee first made headlines earlier this month when she spilled the tea about editing the popular series during an appearance on the Twisted Plot Podcast, telling host Evelyn Marley at the time:

“If Scheana knew what was good for her, she’d befriend me because my favorite game is finding all of the embarrassing things that Scheana does and putting them all in. joke that Scheana’s memoir will be Death By a Million Embarrassments. We’ve shown a lot of her story. … I understand why she’s bitter in some ways. You know, we do poke fun at her, but she’s just so funny.”

She went on to allege that much of the cast never went out of their way to befriend her or other behind the scenes team members:

“They don’t really think about or talk to us at all. I feel like they should totally want to be friends with me. I know everything about them. Oh, wait! Maybe that’s why they don’t want to be friends with me, it must be really creepy to talk to an editor who’s been looking at your face, like, 50 hours a week.”

You’d think they would want to, especially if they want their good side getting on air in the end!! The whole conversation was a bit confusing, TBH, as Dellinger added she had been pining to become close with Stassi Schroeder:

“I was like, ‘I am totally going to be friends with Stassi.’ No, that didn’t happen. Like, I met her at the premiere parties and she doesn’t care about me — nor does anybody.”

What do U make of the latest Bravo tea, y’all?? Let us know your thoughts (below) in the comments!!

Destiney's Part in Shahs of Sunset Cheating Rumors Revealed?

It wouldn’t be a Shahs of Sunset party without some drama.

In this exclusive clip from tonight’s all-new episode, Mercedes “MJ” Javid and the Shahs guys interrogate Ali Ashouri about Destiney Rose‘s involvement in the cheating rumors about Reza Farahan‘s husband. Earlier in the season, Destiney brought to light gossip about Adam Neely possibly being unfaithful.

Allegedly, the origin of the rumor came from Ali and MJ, with Destiney claiming she was merely a pawn in all of this. However, it seems Destiney may be guiltier than she’s let on.

While at a themed party, inspired by MJ’s iconic mother Vida, the group decides to ask Ali directly about Destiney’s role in the drama.

“I’m a little bit concerned if she’s gonna be cool with Ali and Destiney. I’m just not sure,” MJ remarks in regards to her mother. As the gang is shocked to learn of Destiney’s invitation, MJ adds, “I actually invited her yesterday and him.”

Here is where Ali emerges and joins the bigger group conversation. As many in the Shahs gang have been dragged into this situation, Nema Vand demands for clarification.

“Ali, I’m just so bothered by this! I really want to be clear on this: Destiney, she knew?” Nema inquires.

“She knew,” Ali responds.

As Ali is asked if they ever “rehearsed” the cheating allegations conversation, the former confirms he and Destiney met before sitting down on camera.

“We were in my apartment, we talked about the scenario,” Ali dishes. “And then, Destiney knew what she was going to say.”

Uh oh. Is Destiney about to face the wrath of the Shahs crew?

“I feel like, Destiney doesn’t want to face the music,” Nema notes in a confessional. “She is 100 percent not a pawn. It’s like, girl, aren’t you tired? Come on now, just own this.”

For all of this and more, including the gang’s Vida transformations, be sure to watch the exclusive footage above.

Shahs of Sunset airs Fridays at 9 p.m. on Bravo!

Million Dollar Listing’s Fredrik Eklund Says His Twins Are ‘Obsessed’ with Their New L.A. Life

After moving from New York, Fredrik Eklund says his kids are lovinLos Angeles.

The Million Dollar Listing star, who shares 2-year-olds Milla and Fredrik Jr. with Derek Kaplan talked to PEOPLE about his two kids and the family’s transition to the West Coast.

“It’s been quite a transition,” the 42-year-old tells PEOPLE. “Overall it’s been incredible. People ask me why I moved to Beverly Hills from New York after 17 years, I always say the main reason is the kids.”

The real estate mogul announced in July 2019 that he’d be making the official move to Los Angeles, surprising many as he is one of the top brokers in New York City.

“They’re so obsessed,” he says. “They’re in the pool every day and they’re super, super happy. I feel torn because one side of me wants to spoil them, I just give them everything that they want but also another part of me is really jealous because I certainly didn’t have a childhood like that, but it’s just lovely to see them enjoying it so much.”

As the kids continue to grow, Eklund admits that raising his little pair can be “a lot.”

“I get blinded by them every day, they’re just the most beautiful little creatures,” he swoons. “It’s a lot having twins, any twin parent would agree. It’s so intense, but it’s also incredible. It’s the most beautiful, most important thing I’ve ever done. It’s exhausting but totally worth it.”

The twins have also made their first big film debut — well, sort of.

The two toddlers have roles in the Million Dollar Listing New York star’s hilarious Star Wars-inspired listing video which he created to help him sell a $32 million Beverly Hills home.

“I’ve never done anything with my kids,” Eklund tells PEOPLE. “At first I was a little hesitant to bring them but I’m so thankful and happy that they came. We had a face painter there for the kids. My daughter was a rabbit, my son became a dolphin and they were wearing the Star Wars-inspired outfits with their lightsabers. It’s really amazing.”

The clip follows Eklund and co-lister Ben Bacal as they prepare to do battle by both training and relaxing throughout the home’s 12,800-square-feet while dramatic music plays in the background.

The two-story home at 1231 Lago Vista Drive features seven bedrooms, 11 bathrooms, floating staircases and a six-foot chandelier, so there is lots of space to cover.

At the end of the clip — just before the two battle it out with lightsabers — viewers are brought back to reality: an adorable kids’ birthday party featuring Eklund’s own children.

Last month, Eklund opened up to his 1.2 million followers about raising his two adorable kids.

“Their personalities are really coming out now and we laugh so much at their ideas and antics. Freddy is the biggest cuddle baby still and so sweet and always want dada to read books and draw paintings of sharks,” he wrote about Fredrik, Jr. “He won’t stop growing and all the girls and I’m sure some boys want to be his friend. He says sharks are ‘mean’ and that dogs are ‘nice.'”

“Milla, on the other hand, runs the family,” he wrote about his daughter. “She calls herself Boss and Queen and her favorite movie is Wonder Woman. Her favorite word is ‘Stop!’ as she puts her hand out forcefully.”

And as the real estate star continues to settle into Los Angeles with the kids, he says he “can’t comment” on whether he’ll be joining the Bravo show’s Los Angeles version.

“I’ve become close to the L.A. cast now that I live here and I’ve been interacting with them a lot, and you know, squint squint, I can’t say anything,” he teases.

Fans began speculating about the switch to the L.A. show after Eklund shared a photo with Tracy Tutor and Josh Flagg with the caption “Yup it’s happening 😏.”

Eklund says he “looks up to all” of the L.A. cast members and says he’s been hanging out with them a lot.

“The L.A. cast has been here forever,” he says. “They know every property and I come and I bring something new for LA and a bigger outreach, maybe in terms of national and international clientele. But I still want to cooperate so I’ve really been excited to hang out and get to know them all.”

Vanderpump Rules Star James Kennedy Announces He Is ‘Nine Months Sober’

James Kennedy is about to hit a major milestone!

While appearing on Tuesday’s episode of Watch What Happens Live, the Vanderpump Rules star gave an update on his sobriety, as well as his relationship with co-star Raquel Leviss.

After watching a clip which showed the pair arguing about Kennedy’s drinking, James eloquently explained how things have changed since then:

“I think because of all the drinking I was doing and stuff, I was really hiding away from my true emotions. And just blaming whatever I wanted to get out the easy way, do you know what I mean?”

Andy Cohen asked:

“Can you tell us now the changes that that spurred on?”

To cheers from the audience, James responded:

“I’m going on to nine months sober. I haven’t had a drink in nearly nine months.”

That’s awesome!!

A lot has changed for the 27-year-old, who says he’s been attending Alcoholics Anonymous meetings and working on his relationship:

“I have gone to AA meetings and stuff since then. I’ve really taken hold of my life and trying to change it for the better and change our relationship for the better.”

Andy praised the reality star:

“That’s amazing, first of all and congratulations.”

Ch-ch-check out more from Kennedy (below):

He’s not the only star of the Bravo series who has recently opened up about their struggles with alcohol. In early February, Lala Kent shared on Instagram:

“What my sobriety looks like: I hit a breaking point where I had to identify as an alcoholic or I was going to lose everything. The second that I admitted I was powerless over alcohol I knew it was time to put in the work. I started reading the Big Book, going to meetings and working very hard to never go back to that drunken version of myself. After 30 days, I knew I wanted to feel sober forever, and it was entirely up to me — and no one else. That was very empowering.”

She added:

“Today, after a year and 4 months of sobriety, and the way I feel about my life, some say I’m on the “pink cloud.” And maybe I am. What there is no “maybe” about is that I know I’m human. I know I love to drink… a lot. I know I’m a hard worker, and I know that my life is entirely up to me. However, if I decided to pick up a drink, it would be the determining factor of how my life would be. So on those days of weakness, I put in more work, and I stay my a** at home; knowing tomorrow might be a struggle as well, but I’ll have the same goal, and I will do anything in my power to stay sober — including reaching out to someone to help me carry the load. You know who you are. #OneDayAtATime”

We applaud James (and Lala) for being so open!! It’s not always easy to talk about something like this.

Bethenny Frankel's Boyfriend Paul Bernon Leaves Flirty Comment on Her Sexy Bedroom Snap

It looks like things are heating up for Bethenny Frankel and boyfriend Paul Bernon!

On Wednesday, the former Real Housewives of New York City star, 49, received a flirty comment from her beau after posting a steamy ad for her Skinnygirl Sensuality Supplements on Instagram.

In the sultry shot, Frankel can be seen wearing what appears to be a black robe as she holds up a bottle of her product.

“Feelin’ sexy? I created my #Skinnygirl Sensuality Supplement to give a helping hand in the bedroom,” she captioned the photo, to which Bernon, 42, responded, “🔥😍.”

Frankel began dating Bernon, a real estate developer and film producer, in 2018 following the death of on-off again boyfriend Dennis Shields.

Last September, the Skinnygirl mogul celebrated their one-year anniversary with a sweet tribute post on Instagram marking the relationship milestone.

“Having such a supportive and loving partner makes me a better person & inspires me to achieve the impossible,” she wrote alongside a photo of them sitting on the edge of a boat. “Happy Anniversary! I love you and thank you for the most beautiful year! ♥️❌⭕️♥️😘.”

Frankel also sang of Bernon’s praises while celebrating his birthday in July.

“Happy Birthday, Paul,” Frankel wrote on Instagram. “You are such a brilliant, sweet, beautiful, kind, hilarious person. You have enriched my life immeasurably. You make me laugh to the point of tears… You embrace my life, my spirit, my daughter, my career, my goals, and my choices. The very few people who truly know you are the luckiest people in the world.”

“You have literally and figuratively saved my life,” she added, a nod to his assistance when she was hospitalized after suffering a near-fatal allergic reaction to fish in 2018.

Likewise, Bernon only had kind words for Frankel on her birthday in November, writing on his personal Instagram, “You have brought me true happiness, and I’m so lucky to have you in my life.”

“No one is smarter, funnier, or makes a bigger impact to help those around us,” he shared. “Thank you for being the most loving partner. I can’t wait to celebrate you today ❤️ 👑 🦊 😍.”

Speaking to PEOPLE in December, Frankel — who shares daughter Bryn, 9, with ex-husband Jason Hoppy — raved about the relationship, saying things with the businessman have been “wonderful.”

“He’s a good person who I love,” she continued. “I don’t know if it’s a yin to my yang, but he’s really relaxed, he’s mellow and he’s very, very funny.”
