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!!

Peter Weber & Kelley Flanagan’s Families Are ‘So Happy’ They’re Officially An Ite

Third time’s a charm, baby!

ICYMI, Peter Weber is officially off the market and “fully dating” his former Bachelor contestant Kelley Flanagan after weeks of teasing their relationship on social media. While the pilot’s whirlwind of a season and controversial post-show decisions might have left some fans bitter, the new couple’s friends and loved ones truly couldn’t be happier for them right now!

A source close to the situation told Us Weekly about how the pair’s inner circle has given them the thumbs-up:

“All of their friends and family are so happy for them.”

Late last month, before Peter and Kelley were comfortable with becoming Instagram and TikTok official, a different insider told the outlet they were still hesitant about their romance and struggled with “admitting it to people.” But they’ve since thrown caution to the wind and are fully leaning into this thing! We mean, just look at this adorable shot Weber posted (below) of himself and Flanagan. The “you caught me” really says it all!

You caught me. Let the adventure begin 💫

A post shared by Peter Weber (@pilot_pete) on

This was a much sweeter approach to the news than the snarky video they made singing Akon‘s Don’t Matter, but either way, the message is clear! As the confidant explained to Us:

“This was just their way of announcing they’re a couple to the world.”

Nice! But just for good measure, Pete’s mom Barbara also went ahead and posted her own tribute to the happy couple, too! The Weber matriarch has been a vocal fan of the Chicago-based attorney for a little while now and lovingly referred to her son’s relationship as “serendipity” in a new post, seen here:

❤️Serendipity❤️

A post shared by Barbra (@sweetnums) on

Contrary to the other Bachelor quarantine romances happening out there, these two seem like they’re serious about going the distance! It looks like Peter and Kelley are going to continue sheltering-in-place together in Chicago for the foreseeable future and according to what Bachelorette alum Dustin Kendrick dished to Us Weekly recently, they’ve got a great dynamic going for them right now:

“I think it’s fair for them to come out and say what they want to say, but the only thing I can say is that they look really cute together and their interactions are really cute as well. I’m sure you’ll be possibly hearing stuff in the future from them, but I’ll let them say that.”

Cheers to the happy couple!

Tyler Cameron Trolls Rumored Bachelor Couple Peter Weber & Kelley Flanagan For Trying To Compete W

Peter Weber‘s love life continues to make headlines throughout this Bachelor off-season and it appears things are really starting to heat up again with former contestant Kelley Flanagan!

It’s been about a week since cameras spotted the exes hanging out together in Chicago and on Tuesday, the reality TV stars proved that outing wasn’t just a one-off when they recorded a brand new TikTok dance video with a few of their friends.

If any of this is feeling super familiar to you, it’s because it is! As you’ll likely recall, friendly exes Tyler Cameron and Hannah Brown and their “Quarantine Crew” have been all over the social media platform lately — but pilot Pete and Kelley decided to join the party! Weber and the Chicago-based lawyer enlisted Bachelorette alum Dustin Kendrick and a few others to perform a viral group dance challenge to Wiz Khalifa and Ty Dolla $ign‘s Something New. Ch-ch-check out their clip (below):

Uhh, cute? At least everyone was on beat, right?

The video drew mixed reactions though, with some fans fanning the flames of those Kelley and Peter dating rumors while others simply roasted their attempt at looking cool online! One of the funniest critiques came from the TikTok king himself, Tyler, who hopped on Twitter Wednesday night to claim his throne. He wrote:

“Hey @dustinbkendrick I’m going to need you to grab Peters phone right now and delete the Tik Tok app #theboxgonewrong”

Ooh, burn!! Nothing subtle about that message, ha. With over 11,000 likes and a number of replies about feeling secondhand embarrassment for the group, it’s safe to say Cameron’s not alone in that sentiment. Even Peter had to laugh at himself and all of the trolling, as evidenced by this post on his Insta:

Despite all the jokes, fans’ curiosity about Peter and Kelley continues to grow! The video proves they’re at least quarantining together for the foreseeable future and who knows what all this quality time could do for their relationship now that Peter is single.

Although a source recently told People the former ABC lead isn’t in any rush to be committed again, his activity with Flanagan seems to tell a different story. Let’s also consider the fact that Weber’s mom Barbara has always been a huge fan of Kelley! The 27-year-old opened up about meeting the matriarch on the After The Final Rose live special last month, telling Entertainment Tonight:

“She stans Kelley, which I just learned, which is really funny. I saw her at the finale. She would not leave the finale until she met me.”

Apparently, the women had great small talk and Mrs. Weber told her, “You’re beautiful, I love you. I was your fan since day one.”

Now, there’s a ringing endorsement if we ever heard one! Perezcious readers, do U think all of this means it’s only a matter of time before Peter and Kelley make things official?? Sound OFF in the comments (below)…

Best RHONY Episodes to Re-Watch According to Luann & Ramona

The Real Housewives to the rescue!

As the majority of you out there self-quarantine or work from home to avoid the spread of COVID-19 amid the coronavirus pandemic, we can’t think of a better way to lift your spirits than by reliving The Real Housewives of New York City‘s wildest moments ever. As any diehard Bravo fan knows, the ladies of the Big Apple never fail to entertain.

With the RHONY return just days away (season 12 premieres on Bravo Thursday, Apr. 2 at 9 p.m.!), we asked Ramona Singer, Luann de Lesseps and Tinsley Mortimer to recommended some of their favorite Real Housewives of New York City episodes ever to get you through self-isolation.

Enjoy the ladies’ picks below and stay safe!

Ramona Singer:

“Well, I think the episode season three, when I did the trip to Scary Island (season 3, episode 12). And also just watching me renewing my wedding vows with Mario(season 3, episode 14). I think that season three was pretty, pretty good. Scary Island.

“And then of course, St. Barts was great because that’s when Sonja [Morgan] and I were googling what white trash meant (season 5, episode 15). I had no idea what white trash meant.

“And then you know, of course ‘Calm down. Take a Xanax!’ (season 5, episode 14). You can never repeat that again. That was like amazing. So that was great, St. Barts. Those are those are probably my favorites.”

Wendy Williams Shading Lamar Odom & His Fiancée On YouTube Is A Return To Form!

It took a pandemic, but Wendy Williams is finally talking sense again! Well, she’s still talking trash, but at least we totally understand where she’s coming from! LOLz!

The daytime diva attempted to do her show without the audience, but in the big empty studio it just felt like it was missing something — we mean, who was she having a kiki with if no one was there??

Well, it turns out if you take away the studio, the lights, the multi-cam setup, and you just have Wendy dishing the dirt straight to camera from the comfort of her home, you have — well, a YouTube video. But at least this works!

In fact, Wendy may have missed her calling with that high-paying TV gig! LOLz! Because we are loving how real this feels!

OK, so what was the highlight of the week? Wendy trying to wrap her head around the reality show Lamar Odom and fiancée Sabrina Parr announced last weekend. She began:

“All right, so, Lamar Odom and his… Sabrina Parr, they are documenting their relationship on FUBU streaming service. Now, I don’t know what that is.”

Ha! That feels like what we want to say half the time someone tells us about a new TV show on some network we’ve never heard of. Oh, really? It’s 6 minutes and you can only watch it on the digital screen on your refrigerator?

For the record, the For Us By Us Network is the brand new TV arm of the clothing company. In addition to Lamar and Sabrina, they also have rapper Boosie and… no, that’s it for now.

Wendy continued:

“And Lamar and Sabrina, nobody cares about y’all’s relationship.”

Ha! May have to disagree with Wendy there. There’s a reason Californians famously stop everything to watch a high speed police chase. You know it’s going to end badly, you just don’t know exactly how.

The host got particularly shady re: Sabrina’s past, saying:

“Sabrina is a life coach, but she’s got a whole bunch of arrest pictures at the police precinct.”

Ooh, that is some classic goss! She also seemed confused by Lamar’s previous statements about the relationship, saying:

“Lamar says he’s a sex addict and they say they don’t want to have sex until they get married.”

Yeah, we’re intrigued by that one as well. She finally said:

“Lamar has two kids here in New York, grown. I don’t know what kind of time he spends with these kids. You know what, I feel dirty doing the story.”

Damn, really? She talked herself out of it?? LOLz!

Something tells us she also no longer has a crack research staff down the hall, so maybe that’s all the tea she has at the moment.

Get your dose of Wendy, with the Lamar stuff starting around the 9:55 mark (below)!

Giannina From 'Love Is Blind' Breaks Down Her and Damian's Shocking Finale

Perhaps the couple with the most shocking ending on the Love Is Blind finale was Giannina Gibelli and Damian Powers. No, their relationship wasn't as smooth or ironclad as, say, Lauren Speed and Cameron Hamilton's, but they seemed downright smitten with each other. There were fights, of course⁠—who can forget when Giannina told Damian that even though she was the best sex of his life, he wasn't hers?—but overall I expected them to say, "I do" come wedding day.

That didn't happen. In the end, Giannina was all in, but Damian was out. He said, "I don't" at the altar, causing Giannina to run out of the venue—in her wedding dress—and trip on the ground. The two ultimately talked things out, but there was no happily ever after.

Not that we know of, at least. The Love Is Blind cast reunion airs next Thursday, March 5, on Netflix, and Giannina and Damian will surely give us more details then. In the meantime, we caught up with Giannina and had her break down that shocking finale, explain what went wrong, and offer a little insight into her love life now. Read the candid chat, below:

Glamour: This must be such a crazy time for you.

Giannina Gibelli: It's been really exciting. It's definitely been a bit of a shock. I didn't think that this many people were going to fall in love with the show, but overall the support has been great. I've been in a pretty good head space with everything. It's just a lot to take in all at once, but I'm hopeful. I think this is great. I love that people are accepting it like this.

Can you walk me through what you were feeling in that moment when Damian said he couldn't marry you?

Giannina: Well, you go into a bit of a shock, right? You don't really believe what's happening. I process a lot of things really quickly. So I went from a moment of denial, to acceptance, to sadness, to anger, pretty much just all at once. Embarrassed, because I'm in front of my family and friends. It wasn't his fault. We had to go to the altar. We didn't have to get engaged, but we had to have the wedding. And he told me that he didn't know what he was going to say until he saw me. You're always hopeful, especially when you're in your wedding dress, and you've made up your mind. It was a lot to take in and a lot of sadness, but a lot of humility and awareness of like, "Okay, I've got to pick myself up. I need to feel all these feelings, but I need to pick myself up eventually."

How long did it take you to heal from the heartache of this experience, and what helped you heal from it?

Giannina: So overall, there was a big trickle effect, right? After the experience, your whole world gets taken upside down, because a lot of the things that you've always valued, or things that you've probably hidden, or feared for a really long time, come up to the surface. You have no choice but to face them and overcome them in a very honest and challenging way. It took me about nine months after the experience to start feeling like myself again. I did so much. I did career changes. I went on so many trips back home. Definitely took some time for myself to heal and to grow and do some soul-searching, but it wasn't easy. But I'm really grateful for it, because it definitely happened to me for a reason.

Damian on Love Is Blind

What have you learned from this experience?

Giannina: You don't really know what someone is going through, and all of our paths are completely and extremely unique. I'm blessed to go through all of my hardships and suffering and success and achievements so that, hopefully, I can help other people. I really just came to the realization that hard things happen to strong people. So I'm really accepting of myself. I'm very constructive with myself. I can either be my worst enemy or my own best friend. And you really just have to accept your flaws. It's OK to accept some things that you want to have better and that you want to evolve. No one's perfect, but it's definitely made me more aware to other people's feelings and how to grow as a woman and then, hopefully, help other people along the way. It's been a nice, hard, but rewarding journey.

Looking back, do you see any signs or things that might have suggested that Damian wasn't going to go through with it?

Giannina: There were so many things that weren't shown, and it makes sense at the end of the day, but overall he was confident the entire time, and I was the one that was very scared. Traditional marriage has always been a challenge for me because of my parents' divorce. I had a lot of fears, and I think as soon as I got in it, he got out of it. But the only thing that tipped me off, or the biggest thing that tipped me off, was that he told me, "I don't know what I'm going to tell you until I see you." And I was just like, "Okay." But I put myself in a situation where I was like, "Whatever outcome happened, I will be okay It will be okay. He will be okay." So it's not like it was the end of the world. Things happen and you've got to learn from them and move on from them.

What did you find most frustrating about this experience?

Giannina: I think it was the timing for me, just because I still feel like I needed to figure out so much. I wanted to hang out with my friends and I wanted to meet his parents and I just felt like our timing wasn't right where it could have been—and it caused a lot of pressure on us. I do think that him saying, "I don't know what I'm going to say until I see you"—I had put him through a lot, too, so I couldn't be a hypocrite to sit on the other side and say, "Well you've got to tell me now," when I couldn't do the same thing. So I really put myself in his shoes a lot, and that's why we saw eye to eye a lot, even though it doesn't seem like it.

One of your and Damian's fights has gone viral on Twitter: The one where you tell him, "Do you know how you say this is the best sex of your life? Well, I haven't reciprocated that." Have you given any more thought to that particular situation?

Giannina: Yeah. That's one of the things that I dreaded for so long, for a year and a half. I was like, "What's going to happen?" And I saw that on air and I was just like, "That's real. That's true." I think so many women and men have been in the position where they've been with a partner and they're just like, "It's good, but I want to make it great. How can we get there? How can I communicate that?" And it's really hard, because you don't know if someone's pride is going to get hurt. You don't know how to word it. I think open communication and really understanding that it's not an insult—it's just this moment or this thing that you want to better so that you can have a healthier relationship with your partner. I'm happy to talk to people about it. It definitely helped me.

Looking back, is there anything that Damian said to you that particularly stung?

Giannina: I think him telling me "no" was the hardest thing. I can handle a lot of things. I can handle a lot of feedback, and that's fine. I know I'm not perfect. But him saying "no" at the altar, which is something that—not that I couldn't get past it, it was just something that hurt me most. And I think it was because I landed at a place where I was open and willing and literally giving myself over. I had been very vulnerable throughout the whole thing, but I also put my guard up a lot, too, if you didn't notice.

What is your relationship with Damian like now?

Giannina: I think we're both at a mutual understanding. We're in a good place. There's no hard feelings whatsoever.

Are you single now? Can you divulge anything about your love life?

Giannina: I definitely am focusing on myself and just always bettering a relationship with myself and sharing that with friends, family, whoever.
