Jenelle Evans & David Eason Spotted Co-Parenting In Nashville — So Are They Back Together??

Jenelle Evans and David Eason were spotted out in public together on Tuesday. Yes, really!

Just hours after a Tennessee judge dismissed the momma’s restraining order against her estranged husband, eagle-eyed fans spotted the embattled pair together along with their daughter Ensley walking around in Nashville. But everything here is not what it seems, apparently!

According to TMZ, it is true the 28-year-old reality TV star and her controversial 35-year-old baby daddy were snapped while out and about — but the little girl’s presence is apparently the key part of the whole story. (You can see the picture HERE, by the way.)

Sources are telling the outlet Ensley is reportedly Jenelle’s only reason for dropping the restraining order and getting back in the same zip code as Eason. That is, the Teen Mom 2 star wants her daughter to have a relationship with her father, and this is what it takes to make it happen, so…

Those same insiders are adamant the divorce is still proceeding as normal, and Jenelle is apparently not romantically involved in any way with David right now.

However, sources claim she really wants to be able to trust him as a co-parent much like she’s successfully done with her other exNathan Griffith. Soon enough, we’ll see whether this could actually ever happen, as David proves whether or not he can step up in this way…

Scared For Her Life?

Still, this is an interesting turn of events for Evans, to say the least. It wasn’t long ago she was reportedly scared for her own well-being, as well as the safety of her children, which caused her to flee Eason’s home in rural eastern North Carolina last October. She took the kids to Nashville and immediately filed the restraining order in a Tennessee court… only for it all to end abruptly with the 35-year-old dad’s arrival back on the scene on Tuesday.

Still, we can appreciate this momma’s desire to have a successful co-parenting relationship with her former man, and if David and Ensley can have a positive relationship, it’d be a great thing for the little girl. Here’s hoping things work out as they should for the whole family, and the rambunctious reality TV star manages to keep the drama away from her doorstep!

What do U think, Perezcious readers?! Is it a foregone conclusion Jenelle and David will eventually get back together now? Or is this really just for Ensley’s sake?!

Jenelle Evans Drops Restraining Order Against Ex David Eason — But Divorce Proceedings Are Still Ongoing

Teen Mom 2 star Jenelle Evans is NOT moving forward with her restraining order against estranged husband David Eason.

According to court docs, the 27-year-old former (and future) reality TV star had been expected in court in Davidson County, Tennessee late last week for a hearing, but it was canceled. Upon the cancelation, a Tennessee judge officially dismissed Evans’ order of protection request against her former partner, according to Radar Online.

Related: Jenelle Is Officially Coming Back To ‘Teen Mom 2’!!!

The outlet confirmed as much with a Davidson County Court Clerk, who noted there had been a “voluntary dismissal without prejudice filed by the petitioner on January 10.” Basically, that means Evans filed to dismiss the restraining order herself, evidently no longer seeing Eason as a physical threat to her. But, since it was done without prejudice, she’s legally able to re-file a new restraining order if she feels threatened by him again.

The now-completed restraining order is a bit of basic courtroom maneuvering in what has been an otherwise brutally bitter battle for both parties over the last year. Twice before, judges have been forced to extend temporary restraining orders here in an attempt to keep the peace between the former couple. And a full order of protection had also previously been in place for Jenelle’s three children: Jace, 10, Kaiser, five, and Ensley, two.

Now, it appears things have calmed down quite a bit, which may be a good sign for the estranged pair. The divorce is still proceeding, though, which would suggest the former MTV mainstay hasn’t exactly thought twice about her decision to permanently leave David. Knowing the root causes of their estrangement and split in the first place, this makes a lot of sense.

A Long Time Coming…

As you’ll no doubt recall, the one-time Teen Mom cast member popped up in Tennessee less than a year ago after splitting suddenly from Eason and fleeing the pair’s eastern North Carolina home. Late last year, Jenelle claimed in court docs David had been “abusive and violent” towards her and had been sending threatening text messages along with making other violent threats towards the helpless young mother.

Months before that, Eason came under public fire for brutally killing the momma’s beloved French bulldog Nugget, reacting in a fit of rage to the poor pup after it apparently snapped at Ensley. The 35-year-old endured an international media firestorm for weeks on end afterwards and was investigated by local authorities over the incident. Soon enough after it, then, one thing led to another and Jenelle was gone for good.

What do U think, Perezcious readers?! Sounds like things have calmed down enough for now to at least allow the young mom some breathing room without the restraining order… which is a good thing. We’ll see what this may mean for the divorce proceedings going forward, but like we said, as it goes now everything is still moving along just as it should. Oh boy!

Amber Portwood Has A New Boyfriend ‘Who Just Happened To Watch’ Her On ‘Teen Mom OG’!

Amber Portwood is officially off the market!

According to an Us Weekly source, the Teen Mom OG star has a new boyfriend six months after her dramatic split from baby daddy Andrew Glennon.

The insider revealed that Amber’s new man, Europe native Dimitri Garcia, is in his late 30s and a parent of his own — he’s posted several pics of his son and daughter on his Instagram page — and apparently slid into the reality star’s DMs after watching a few episodes of her MTV show!

Related: Amber Did NOT Violate Her Probation By Allegedly Making Those Threats

The source dished:

“Amber is dating him. Dimitri has only seen her show a few times. He’s not a superfan or anything; he’s just a guy who happened to watch the show. He thought she was pretty and reached out to her via social media.”

Ah, modern romance!

The source also noted that the relationship is still in the early stages, adding:

“She’s just getting to know him. They’ve been spending time together at her place. He’s a breath of fresh air.”

Great to hear!

As fans know, this new romance comes after a tumultuous past few months for the 29-year-old, who split from Glennon in July 2019 when she was arrested in Indiana for domestic battery. According to reports, the former couple were having a disagreement when Portwood allegedly attacked the 35-year-old with a machete while he was holding their now-20-month-old son, James.

The two have struggled to amicably co-parent since. As we reported, Amber filed a motion on Monday for her ex to be held in contempt of court after he allegedly violated the pair’s custody agreement for James over the holidays. Apparently, their existing parental agreement stated that James would spend Christmas Day with Amber, but Andrew instead reportedly skipped town last minute with the tot and failed to notify her.

In addition to the alleged violation, Amber came forward with claims that James was severely bitten by a dog while in his father’s care. She alleged Glennon waited three days to finally send her a pic of the injury and neglected to share any info about James’ initial urgent care visit, adding that the photo she received of James showed him with a black eye and a bandaged nose, “indicating that the injury was more than a ‘nip.’”

Portwood is demanding increased parenting time to make up for what she lost during the holidays and requested that her ex foot the bill for her accrued legal expenses.

Sounds like a new man in her life is exactly what she needs!

‘Teen Mom OG’ Stars Amber Portwood & Andrew Glennon Head Back To Court: Broken Custody Agreements, Their Son’s Dog Bite & More Family Drama

Amber Portwood is back in court and ready to make her ex Andrew Glennon pay for his alleged recent mistakes!

The Teen Mom OG star filed a motion on Monday for her ex to be held in contempt of court after he allegedly violated the pairs’ custody agreement for their son James over the holidays, TMZ reports. Additionally, she brought forth claims their 1-year-old was severely bitten by a dog while in his father’s care. Oh no…

The legal docs were officially filed as an “Injunction Against Custodial Parent to Prevent Interference with Parenting Time.”

Apparently, the former couple’s existing parental agreement noted that James would spend Christmas Day with Amber but Andrew had other plans; he reportedly skipped town last minute with the tot and failed to notify his baby momma.

To make matter even worse, Glennon supposedly contacted Portwood on the holiday to let her know their son was “nipped” by a family dog and needed to go to the ER. She claims her ex waited three (!!!) days after that to finally send her a photo of the injury and neglected to share any info about James’ initial urgent care visit.

Whoa. WTF? Not cool…

In the docs, the MTV star also said the photo she received of James showed him with a black eye and a bandaged nose, “indicating that the injury was more than a ‘nip.’”

Ugh. Our hearts go out to this little guy as his parents continue to duke it out. / (c) Amber Portwood/Instagram

Unfortunately, Amber had even more grievances to get off her chest; the starlet alleges Andrew shared a photo of their son on Instagram on New Year’s Eve, which apparently violated another decision they made together.

The List Of Demands

Now, the reality TV star is asking for a judge to step in and help settle their differences.

In addition to the legal motion, Portwood is demanding increased parenting time to make up for what she lost during the holiday season and requested that Andrew foot the bill for her accrued legal expenses.

This is just the latest sad development in ongoing tensions between the bitter co-parents. Our last update came after the 29-year-old copped a plea deal in a domestic violence case involving her ex. It was determined Amber would not serve any prison time for allegedly attacking Glennon with a machete while he was holding their son.

Ugh. It sounds like things are far from over between these two. What do U think, Perezcious readers?? Can the parents find some common ground and finally settle their beef? Sound OFF with your thoughts in the comments section (below)…

JWoww Celebrate’s BF Zack Carpinello’s Birthday With The ‘Jersey Shore’ Cast!

A new era!!

Jenni “JWoww” Farley pulled out all the stops to celebrate her boyfriend Zack Clayton Carpinello‘s 25th birthday celebration. On Sunday, the couple dined in New Jersey with Jersey Shore co-stars Vinny Guadagnino and Mike Sorrentino, along with The Situation’s wife Lauren Sorrentino, and mutual friend Jamie Giovinazzo.

On Instagram, the momma of two shared two photos in honor of her beau and penned:

“When 24 turns 25 celebrating at @thebutchersblocknj”

Even though additional members of the cast were not present for the dinner, they chimed in on social media in honor of Carpinello! DJ Pauly D wrote:

“I knew this day would come. His name is now officially changed to 25!!! Happy Bday”

While Deena Cortese and Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi respectively wrote:

“Love you guys!!! Wish I was able to make it 😫❤️”


The professional wrestler shared his own set of photos along with the caption:

“Celebrated #25 in the best way. A massive feast with the most incredible food I’ve ever eaten, and great friends beside me. Jenni surprised me with this to close out our great day together. @jwoww you are my best friend and I love you with everything I have. P.S.- still my birthday 🎂🥃🎄”

Looked like a fun night!!

The couple have been linked since April of this year, though they split briefly in October after Zack was caught flirting with Angelina Pivarnick on an episode of the MTV series, but later reconciled. Now, it seems they are stronger than ever!! Captioning a sweet selfie with his lady love, the now-25-year-old wrote to IG:

“You mean absolutely everything to me. You are my world. You are tremendously special in so many ways. You are an absolutely gorgeous woman inside and out. We are incredible together, and I want to be by your side for the rest of time. I love you @jwoww”

Despite the happiness we imagine her BF brings, Jenni has been dealing with her share of struggles over the past year — most notably the divorce from the father of her kids, Roger Mathews. While having a heart to heart with BFF Snooki, she opened up about her current state of emotions:

“We were talking about regrets earlier — I’ve been thinking about the biggest one. I’m going through it with the divorce. It’s been almost a year since I filed. When you get divorced, you’re supposed to be celebrating and start a new chapter, but it’s really heartbreaking. And it’s stressful, the up and down battle of figuring out custody issues. I just don’t know when it gets better.”

Here’s hoping the new year brings nothing but smooth sailing for them both!!

Perezmas 2019: 8 Intense ‘Teen Mom’ Scandals

On the eighth day of Perezmas, pop culture gave to us…

Eight intense Teen Mom scandals!

The leading ladies of the long-running MTV series have put us all to work this year, with a flurry of legal issues, arrests, feuds, and alleged abuse. While there was plenty of drama to keep people talking online and viewers tuning into the show, we narrowed it down to the top eight standout moments of the year.

Related: Nostalgia Reboots of 2019

R.I.P. Nugget

In April, David Eason made headlines for allegedly murdering Jenelle Evans‘ dog Nugget after she bit their daughter, Ensley. As you’re likely aware, the controversial MTV alum had been in trouble in the months leading up to the incident, to the point where crew reportedly refused to film anywhere near him.

As the court of public opinion was heavily NOT in favor of Eason and Evans, the longtime reality star followed in her husband’s footsteps and was subsequently fired by the network. MTV stated:

“We have stopped filming with Jenelle Eason as of April 6, 2019, and have no plans to cover her story in the upcoming season.”

For several months after the incident, things were very much up in the air about what actually occurred with the late pup, and the mother of three was even accused of faking the entire thing for publicity. In September, Eason spoke with People and confirmed that he did, in fact, murder Nugget:

“This was something that nobody wants to ever have to do. The dog was aggressive. Yes, she might not be huge or whatever, but you know when a dog bites a child on the face more than one time, then it should never be around the child again. If you give the dog up for adoption, one day it’s going to be around children again.”

Jenelle & David’s Custody Battle

Unfortunately, the backlash the couple faced after the death of Nugget was just the beginning of their troubles in 2019. Many fans and followers had been vocal in the past about their concerns regarding Jenelle and the kids’ safety, and things only became worse following the Frenchie’s untimely death.

In late May, Jenelle lost custody of her three children, as well as David’s daughter. When they returned home in July from the star’s ex, her mother Barbara Evans, and Eason’s ex, Jenelle made a statement:

“I am ecstatic to regain custody of my kids back! Throughout this long process and final decision, I am excited to be moving forward and continuing to show America I’m a good parent.”

Understandably, many had pushed for Evans to leave her husband following the Nugget incident, but it wasn’t until October 2019 she actually did. Jenelle penned on her Instagram:

“The kids and I have moved away from David. Nobody gets into a marriage expecting it to end but I know thats what is best for me, and for my kids. Today I’ve filed papers to start that process.”

While we’re sure this won’t be the last of the drama, we can only hope for the sake of their daughter things go relatively smooth in the coming months regarding custody and divorce.

Amber Portwood’s Machete Attack

In July, Amber Portwood was arrested in Indiana and charged with one count of criminal recklessness with a deadly weapon and two counts of domestic battery after allegedly striking her then-boyfriend Andrew Glennon in the neck while he held their son James in his arms. She also allegedly used a machete to break into the room where he was hiding and reportedly threatened to end her life by overdosing on clonazepam.

In October, she signed a plea deal after pleading guilty to domestic battery and was sentenced to 2.5 years of probation. The local District Attorney’s office confirmed the 29-year-old may leave the state for employment purposes, but other travel requests are subject to approval. She has also been ordered to attend parenting classes.

But it wasn’t long before Miz Portwood was in hot water once again about the whole ordeal. After YouTuber Katie Joy published audio and video of the altercation, she accused the reality star of making thinly-veiled threats in response to the clips. Although these alleged threats were reported to the DA in Indiana, Portwood’s probation officer reviewed the case and determined there was no real violation.

Mackenzie McKee’s Dog

Back in May, Mackenzie McKee of 16 and Pregnant and later Teen Mom 3 revealed in a since-deleted Facebook post that her neighbor took her dog, Hank (left, above), from the yard before calling animal control while she was on vacation in the Bahamas with her husband Josh McKee.

The mother of three was FURIOUS, writing online she did not understand how it was legal for her Harlequin Great Dane to be removed this way. The neighbor responded to the 25-year-old’s post, saying Hank was whining because he was cooped up in his pen:

“We have listened to this poor dog cry for five days in this tiny little pen. There is no dog house, there is only muddy ground. His food was soaked. We didn’t know if anyone would be back.”

The reality star claimed her pup was being fed daily, but did not mention if he was being walked. Eventually, animal control was called by the neighbor who came and collected him immediately, but Mackenzie still called B.S. on the reports, tweeting up a storm about the incident:

“Lies…. all lies… that is all.

If you guys think that my neighbors were telling the truth, you are out of your mind. They have had it out for us since we moved in in October and moving is in the near future.

I love hank more than words could ever describe. I paid 4K to have his fence installed 2 weeks before vacation and they stalled it out longer. So for you all to pull the “don’t pay for vacation if you can’t afford proper care for your dog” bull s**t is insane as well.”

Mackenzie did get Hank back, but we imagine things have not been friendly with her neighbors ever since…

Ryan Edwards’ Arrest

Two months after choosing to end treatment early at a rehab facility, Ryan Edwards was arrested for outstanding warrants on January 23.

Maci Bookout‘s ex was charged with simple possession of heroin, months after being arrested for breaking probation from a past charge that sent him behind bars in July 2018. According to reports, the Teen Mom OG alum had been released from jail after spending three months behind bars on drug possession and theft charges.

The Teen Mom OG alum was released from jail in April after spending three months behind bars on theft and drug possession charges. Around the time of his earlier arrest, his wife Mackenzie Edwards revealed the couple was leaving the show due to producers’ alleged wishes to feature their yet-to-be-born baby being raised by Ryan’s parents. She told E! News at the time:

“We’re not returning to Teen Mom this season. The network told us they don’t want to show Ryan as a recovering addict. But they did want to enter a contract with our unborn baby and have the baby film with Ryan’s parents so it would look like someone else is raising it.”

Kailyn Lowry Calls Out Producers

In a lengthy Twitter thread near the end of March, Kailyn Lowry slammed producers of the show for showcasing strictly the drama in her life over the positive aspects:

“I have struggled, y’all have seen it. I haven’t always made good choices. But I’m getting my s**t together. Started my company. Own a house, building another. Mtv [sic] calls me up to discuss season finale after not filming my house stuff or my surprise party they knew about for a month. Talkin bout they want me to do a boudoir shoot as the season finale. Kiss my ass. All the s**t I’ve been through and been doing and taking my kids on spring break, building house or party….. trip with @TM2LeahDawn isn’t good enough for my finale??? I’m only valued for getting fucking naked??????”

The 27-year-old added:

“I don’t ever sit on my couch & talk about my baby dads as much as I do when MTV is asking. I feel like that’s such a smack in the face. Drama sells but from what I see the happy stories/tv personalities have a bigger following & more opportunity. Am i wrong? At what point can I stop being portrayed as a bitter baby momma?”

Bristol Palin Calls It Quits

See ya! / (c) Bristol Palin/Instagram.

In April 2019, Bristol Palin announced she was leaving the series after just one season. Sharing to her IG, the 29-year-old wrote:

Teen Mom OG wasn’t a fit for me, it took away my peace.. and honestly – my peace has a price tag that no one but God can afford… $ doesn’t impress me, I don’t entertain bs, and walking away from this show allows God to rebuild me (and my little fam) in the right direction. I have love for all the girls on the show, and wish them the best of luck in all their future endeavors!!… xoxo, B”

Sarah Palin‘s daughter was cast on the seventh season of the series following Farrah Abraham‘s departure. The program chronicled the Alaska native’s divorce from Dakota Meyer and her life with her children. The reality TV personality shares daughters Atlee and Sailor with her ex-husband, and also has a nine-year-old son Tripp with her former BF Levi Johnston.

While Miz Palin had experience with reality TV before her latest stint, it certainly seems like this will be her last. In December 2018, she slammed the series for her edit and portrayal. Sharing on social media, she exclaimed:

“If I cared what people thought of me, I wouldn’t be here today – let’s be real. I’ve stood strong and held it down for my kids since day one. No matter how bad @teenmom tries to portray my ‘life’… my babies, my family, my close friends – they know the TRUTH. I’m a pretty great mom, work my ass off, show up, and hustle everyday to give my kids a pretty great life. @mtv doesn’t want to talk about faith, show work ethic, or juggling three kids alone, they don’t want to show the humble process of starting over after a divorce, building a career, or any real life issues. All they want with my little segment each week is some fake fill-in Farrah Abraham/Jerry Springer BS, and it’s simply not true. Don’t get me wrong – I’ve said some mean things and learned a lot the last several months – but the life I’ve built for my kids is NOT sitting around talking about baby daddy drama. Every week is a continued disappointment with their inaccuracies and false narratives. I hate getting all emo on you guys but I’ve kept quiet for too long about it. Don’t believe everything you see on TV.”

Jenelle Evans Versus EVERYONE

Nearly every star from the show has gotten into an IRL or online argument with another cast member, but we’re pretty sure Jenelle takes the cake in this department. The troubled star took to Twitter in July shortly after details of Portwood’s arrest became public and shared links from multiple outlets regarding the news, before tweeting out:

“All I have to say is at least I learn from my past mistakes. 💁🏻‍♀️”

Fans were quick to call her out, given her own issues at the time, and it wasn’t long before Amber chimed in and shared an old link to an article about a 911 call made by Evans where she was worried for her safety and noted to operators David had a gun in the home.

Though Portwood did not add a caption to her tweet, it was assumed by many Twitics that she was reminding her co-star about not learning from past mistakes, as at the time, she was still in a relationship with Eason.

More recently, Jenelle and Kailyn got into an argument of their own on the social media site and it was a DOOZY. It all started when Lowry responded to a now-deleted tweet from Evans’ ex-husband, Courtland Rogers, about potentially divorcing his current wife. Why he was publishing this on Twitter during Thanksgiving weekend… we don’t know. Back to the drama!

The seemingly friendly exchange didn’t sit well with one of Jenelle’s other exes, Nathan Griffith. As you may recall, the two have been on better terms as of late because Kaiser‘s mom is no longer with David Eason. Amid the flurry of responses, Jenelle reportedly replied to the conversation: “Anything for attention” after liking a tweet from her ex which read:

“Kail really?! Why get involved with an ex that obviously gets under @PBandJenelley_1 skin? You don’t want the drama but then you egg on the drama. I know Jenelle has done some shitty things but do you honestly have to keep it going? Not trying to be a dick jusr[sic] speaking truth.”

It would seem Evans insinuated Kail would do “anything for attention,” though she did not reply after Miz Lowry tweeted out:

“This has absolutely nothing to do with Jenelle… what are you talking about?”

Perezmas 2019: 9 Nibbles Of Nostalgia

On the ninth day of Perezmas, pop culture gave to us… nine nibbles of nostalgia!

We all love a throwback, and 2019 brought us the airings and announcements of nine classic TV shows and movies. From beloved drama series to witchy movies, and even a reality show — there’s reboots, remakes, and continuations aplenty that left no shortage of nostalgic moments for us to revel in.

So let’s take a peek at some of the best vintage turned new offerings in the last 365 days!

The Hills: New Beginnings

Nine years after we said goodbye to The Hills, MTV gave us a refreshed sequel with The Hills: New Beginnings. Starring returning cast members: Heidi Montag, Spencer Pratt, Stephanie Pratt, Audrina Patridge, Whitney Port, Jason Wahler, Frankie Delgado, and Brody Jenner, plus a few new faces: Brandon Thomas Lee, Mischa Barton, Kaitlynn Carter, Jennifer Delgado, and Ashley Wahler, the series focuses on the present lives and businesses of the stars, with (of course) a splash of drama.

While chatting with Vogue ahead of the series premiere, the leading ladies looked back on how real the reality show we loved was. Port explained:

“Way at the beginning it was very much like, we’re going to put you in real scenarios and not really tell you what’s going on, which is how I think they were able to get everybody to be themselves at first. Then you get to a certain point where things get boring, so the writers and producers had to start thinking about how to spice things up and make certain things more dramatic.”

Miz Barton, whose iconic series The O.C. was the original inspo for Laguna Beach (which later spun into The Hills) revealed how she felt about joining the cast of reality regulars:

“I kind of feel like, in a weird way, I was on The Hills, even though I’d never seen it. My whole life was publicized in a fake way and everything about me was made up while I was on The O.C., which ran simultaneously with The Hills. I remember Nicole Richie was really into them and she would pull me over into a parking lot and be like ‘they’re filming The Hills in there, we have to go see!’ They were the O.G. reality T.V. stars.”

The Hills: New Beginnings will be back for a season 2 next year!


Fans of the classic teen drama Beverly Hills: 90210 were transported back to West Beverly High (sorta) for the meta summer series, BH90210. Unlike a straight reboot, seven of the eight OG cast members (Jennie Garth, Tori Spelling, Shannen Doherty, Gabrielle Carteris, Jason Priestley, Ian Ziering, and Brian Austin Green) play heightened versions of themselves who reunite at a fan convention, where high jinks ensued as they begin to develop the idea of a rebooted show.

As many will recall, Luke Perry sadly passed away in March after suffering a stroke. Though he had never signed onto the project, Miz Spelling shared how the Riverdale star was supportive of the concept:

“Luke was on speakerphone for the first meeting. He was so supportive, and really proud that we were putting it together. He was like, ‘Don’t lose your vision,’ ‘stick to your guns.’ Basically he told us to do what we set out to do and not change our minds.”

Even though the “reboot” topped summer charts as the most-watched summer series on FOX, it has not been renewed for a second season. But all hope is not lost! IRL bestiez Garth and Spelling have hinted to fans something else could be in the works to keep the nostalgia coming. Stay tuned!!

Veronica Mars

Kristen Bell Smile GIF by HULU - Find & Share on GIPHY

Twelve years after the series finale and five after the film, Marshmallows were reunited in 2019 with Kristen Bell as the titular character in Veronica Mars. Though the original series aired on UPN/The CW, the revived fourth season premiered on Hulu with eight episodes. Bell reflected on being able to “play this character that I personally love so much” to Good Morning America:

“Veronica Mars … has this balance of being tough and vulnerable, which everyone feels. But you never really know which part to play.”

She added:

“Rob calls her a superhero without a cape, which is really a great way to describe her. And Veronica’s superpower is that she does not care what anyone else thinks about her. She cares what she thinks about her, which I think is a really healthy way to live.”

Several of Neptune’s residents (Enrico Colantoni, Jason Dohring) returned for the new season, which was centered around crime during Spring Break, but we also got a few new stars (J. K. SimmonsPatton Oswalt), added into the mix.

Are You Afraid Of The Dark?

The long-running horror anthology series Are You Afraid Of The Dark? returned after 19 years as a miniseries in October 2019. The three-part limited series aired on Nickelodeon starring a fresh cast in the Midnight Society telling the terrifying fireside tale of the Carnival of Doom which comes to life. Executive producer Matt Kaplan shared (below) with USA Today:

“There’s a lot of scary stuff out there. So, that wasn’t going to separate us. I think that if we leaned into the Midnight Society, which is one of the things everyone remembers from the original, I felt like we all were going to (be in) a good position, especially since we found such an amazing cast.”

Previously, a film adaptation had been in the works, and the new series was supposed to lead into the movie, but it never got off the ground due to “behind-the-scene changes.”

Punky Brewster

Ever wondered what happened to Punky Brewster? Get ready to find out in 2020! Soleil Moon Frye is reprising the role which made her a 80s pop culture icon for a continuation of the series on NBC‘s streaming service, Peacock.

Per Deadline, the sitcom will focus on Punky as a single mother of three attempting to get her life together when she meets a girl who reminds her of her younger self. Also returning to the series is Cherie Johnson as Punky’s BFF of the same name whose lifelong friendship with Brewster inspired her to become a social worker and help orphaned children.

New to the series is Freddie Prinze Jr., who will portray Brewster’s ex-husband Travis. His character is a musician who frequently travels but still manages to parent his kids, and have sparks with his ex! We’re definitely intrigued…

Lizzie McGuire

Hey now, hey now! One of the most exciting announcements to come out of August’s D23 Expo was that Hilary Duff will be reprising her titular role of Lizzie McGuire for a new series on Disney+. While on stage, the 31-year-old explained to the crowd more of what we can expect from the upcoming reboot:

“She’s working as an apprentice to a fancy New York City decorator. She has her dream guy, who owns a cool SoHo restaurant. She has her dream apartment in Brooklyn. And she’s getting ready to celebrate her 30th birthday.”

Hilz added:

“It’s so great to be home. The good news is, just like me and everybody who loved Lizzie and has grown up with her, Lizzie’s also grown up. She’s older, she’s wiser, she has a much bigger shoe budget, which is super exciting. She has her dream job. She has kind of the perfect life right now.”

So, what about her family and friends? Luckily, a lot of them are coming back, too! As of writing, Adam Lamberg, Jake Thomas, Hallie Todd, and Robert Carradine have all signed onto the project, though there’s no word on whether or not Lalaine will return as Miranda.

Saved By The Bell

26 years after saying goodbye to the cast of Saved By The Bell, Bayside High fans got “so excited” by the news of a revival series in the works. Set to air on NBC‘s forthcoming streaming service, Elizabeth Berkley, and Mario Lopez have signed on to reprise their roles, though it is currently unclear which of the other cast members will be returning.

Though Mark-Paul Gosselaar has yet to join the project, his beloved character Zack Morris is mentioned in the official logline as the governor of California:

“When California governor Zack Morris gets into hot water for closing too many low-income high schools, he proposes they send the affected students to the highest performing schools in the state — including Bayside High. The influx of new students gives the over privileged Bayside kids a much needed and hilarious dose of reality.”

The Craft

Can you tell that the 90s are totally back?! The Craft, AKA the 1996 cult classic about a group of four outcast El Lay teens (Robin Tunney, Fairuza Balk, Neve Campbell, and Rachel True) who turn to witchcraft, is set to return as a remake with a fresh cast! Cailee Spaeny, Gideon Adlon, Lovie Simone, and Zoey Luna will lead the cast of the movie. David Duchovny has also signed on for an unknown role.

Previously, a straight-to-DVD sequel had been in the works but was met with negative reactions by fans, and was later scrapped. Plans also later fell through for a theatrical sequel, so we’re interested to see if a remake can give us the same magic.

Hocus Pocus

A sequel of the classic 1993 film starring Bette Middler, Sarah Jessica Parker, and Kathy Najimy is in the works for Disney+! Very little details are currently known about the plot and cast of the new film, but it has been rumored that Jen D’Angelo, who is set to write the script, has been in talks with the Sanderson sisters portrayers to bring them back to life once more.

Ronnie Ortiz-Magro BLASTS ‘Mentally Unstable’ Jen Harley Over Alleged Physical & ‘Emotional Abuse’ In Series Of Social Media Posts

The drama never ends down on the Shore!

Without naming any names, Ronnie Ortiz-Magro went OFF on his Instagram Story Thursday, dredging up private drama seemingly about his on-again, off-again relationship with baby momma Jen Harley. As you’re likely aware, Harley continued to fan ongoing flames earlier this month with her ex, while also suggesting there could be a court date coming up with the embattled reality star.

Related: Snooki Is Saying Goodbye To ‘Jersey Shore’

The 34-year-old shared screenshots of private texts to his Insta Story and added his commentary, without specifying who they were from. In the first post, he wrote about their daughter, Ariana Sky, being upset:

“Knows she’s [Ariana] crying and decides getting drunk with a sugar daddy is better.”

And in a second, he inquired (below) along with a text message screenshot which detailed a hookup:

“Is it legal to have sexual activities for money?!?”

Give all the messages a read for yourself:

In a third slide, he wrote out a lengthy note, describing several of the altercations which have been documented in the past between him and Harley:

“All I have ever done is provide for my family, and try to give a life to them I never had. I won’t let a sick person used [sic] the fact that I admitted to being depressed and emotionally broken to a point I needed help! It wasn’t because of addiction it was because of being dragged by a car, beat to death with my chain before mikes court date, having a ashtray thrown at my Face!! I am choosing to take my life back! Some people just don’t want to give it back, they need that control Of abuse! Well not anymore!!! The truth will set us all free!!”

In the next post, he continued his rant:

“I refuse to sit back anymore, and let a mentally unstable person ruin my name, take my daughter, try to take my freedom with lies. I am standing up for myself & my daughter and everyone else this person has been trying to hurt over the last week. Upset because I’ve moved on with my life. I refuse to be bullied!!! I am a great father, an amazing person! I’ve been harrassed for the last 2 weeks, people I care about being harrassed having fake stories being made up! Enough is enough! Let’s the world know the truth!!”

Finally, he concluded by discussing “emotional abuse, mental control” which he has allegedly “tolerated.” The MTV star wrapped up his stream of consciousness:

“I didn’t even want to stoop to this pathetic level of instability. But How many fake articles can one person wake up to? How many fake lies can one person deal with that my daughter will have to hear? How much emotional abuse, mental control can one person toleratle? How many people can I let this person try to destroy in my life that I care about? I’m sticking up for myself, my daughter and the people in my life that this mentally unstable person has been harassing & threatening!! #LetmeMoveOn #YouBeatzthisRelationshipWorstthanYYouDidToMeEithMyChain [sic]”

‘Teen Mom’ Star Mackenzie McKee’s Mother Passes Away After Cancer Battle

Teen Mom star Mackenzie McKee‘s mother, Angie Douthit, passed away on Monday evening after a battle with brain cancer.

The sad update was first announced on Douthit’s Instagram, which was used to post updates about her medical journey. On Friday, it was shared on the account that the mother of four was ending her radiation treatment plan, and would be entering hospice care at home.

Mackenzie shared a heartfelt caption to her followers on Tuesday morning. Along with a photo of her late momma, the MTV star penned:

“Momma @angiedouthit has crossed the finish line. She did not lose the battle, she one. She is healed and running in heaven in eternity. Idk anyone who left earth with such an impact, Your entire life you never waisted a chance to let the world know Gods love. When we would try to brag on what an amazing person you are you would respond with “it’s not me, it’s God” Could you imagine this world if we all lived like Angie Douthit.”

The 25-year-old continued (below):

“She always said “it’s easy, we were put on earth to share Gods love.” And boy did she. 700 daily post for you guys to read daily, hundreds of speaking engagements even when she could barely walk or speak, she simply trusted That God would speak through her.”

As you may recall, McKee first revealed her mother’s cancer diagnosis in January 2018. Unfortunately, just four months after sharing the news, Angie’s stage four cancer began to spread to her lungs and bones as well.

The mother of three wrapped up her heart-wrenching post:

“Momma, i did not deserve you. But you loved me so unconditionally. You were the glue that held me together. The one who always believed in me. Idk what I will do without you but I hope this goes by fast so I can hurry and come be with you. You passed a torch down to us and I will not fail you. I will live for Christ and love like him like you always taught me. I will make you proud momma.”

On Angie’s account, a post was made announcing her passing and encouraging followers to “spread love and not hate” in her honor:

View this post on Instagram

“Imitate me, as I also imitate Christ.” ‭‭1 Corinthians‬ ‭11:1‬ “I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith. Now there is in store for me the crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous Judge, will award to me on that day—and not only to me, but also to all who have longed for his appearing.” 2 Timothy 4:7-8 On Monday, December 9 at 11:37pm, Angie finished her race. Her last days were spent lovingly surrounded by family and friends as they prayed, sang, and shared funny Angie stories. Angie found out about her cancer in January 2018. She wanted to keep everyone informed of what was going on so she made a social media post. The next day she made another. And then another. And what started as an easy way to convey information turned into wildfire of hope that spread over the world. She wasn’t able to sleep an entire night so she would wake up around 3am to write her posts. We watched her get up everyday in the darkest hours of the night to spread the brightest light that she knew of, her Savior Jesus Christ. There were times when she wrote her posts through pain and confusion. There were times at the end when she couldn’t type and would ask her daughters to type for her but she would not give up spreading the gospel message of hope. In nearly two years, she never missed her daily post…tomorrow she will. But this is where you pick up the baton and run like she did mighty warrior. You can choose this day to be like Angie and use your social media engagements to make a difference rather than disaster, to spread love and not hate, and to always be kind. We know many people around the world read these posts so drop your city and country name in the comments so we can see where you are! #staystrongmightywarrior #itsonlycancer #alwaysbekind

A post shared by Angie Douthit (@angiedouthit) on

Our condolences go out to Mackenzie and the Douthit family during this difficult time.

Snooki Shares Cryptic Post About Being ‘Stuck’ After Announcing ‘Jersey Shore’ Exit — What’s Going On?!

Two days after revealing she will be exiting Jersey Shore, Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi pulled a Khloé Kardashian and got super cryptic on her Instagram Story.

As you’ll recall, the reality star made the shocking announcement she’s ready to move on from her days on camera, leading many to speculate on why she’d choose to leave the successful series.

Related: Angelina Pivarnick Wants To Completely Redo Her Wedding Day After Drama!

Seems there’s more than meets the eye, and we doubt it will be long before the truth comes out about what went down on the show before she made her decision.

Her two posts read:

“You are the author of your story. If you are stuck on the same page, remember that at any moment, you have the power to write a new chapter.”

“The Universe is preparing you for what you asked for.”


The momma of three revealed the big news on the December 6 episode of It’s Happening With Snooki & Joey, the podcast she hosts with friend Joey Camasta. She explained:

“So here comes my breaking news, you guys. There’s reasons why I’ve come to this decision… it’s definitely a hard decision… I’m gonna throw up. OK, you guys, I love you so much and don’t hate me for my decision, but I have to do what’s best for me at the moment, and I am retiring from Jersey Shore.”

The 32-year-old added:

“I am not coming back to Jersey Shore [Family Vacation] for a season four, if there is one. And there’s a lot of reasons why, but the main reason is really, I’m just like… I just can’t do it anymore.”

The reasoning provided on the pod doesn’t necessarily add up with her ominous IG postings. As our readers know, the MTV star and her husband Jionni LaValle welcomed their third child, baby boy Angelo James, in May, joining the pair’s son Lorenzo and daughter Giovanna:

“I hate being away from the kids, I don’t like partying three days in a row, it’s just not my life anymore. And I wanna be home with the kids. I don’t mind a here or there going to a dinner or whatever, but it’s just really hard on me to leave the kids and film the show.”

For this momma bear, her kids are her number one priority, but their safety has seemingly been at stake as of lately:

“I just need to do what’s best for me right now and right now I’m just not comfortable filming that show anymore with the direction it’s going, with all the drama and getting death threats and getting death threats to my children… over this freaking reality show that’s not even that serious. And people take it too seriously to where I’m getting with the kids. And my store, people want to picket it. They want to boycott it and [are] leaving reviews that I have bugs in my store. It’s just a lot and it’s not something I signed up for with this show.”

Angelina Pivarnick Wants To Completely ‘Redo’ Her Wedding Day After Drama With ‘Jersey Shore’ Bridesmaids

Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned and it sounds like newlywed Angelina Pivarnick is still SUPER pissed about what went down at her recent wedding to Chris Larangeira.

It’s only been two weeks since the MTV star tied the knot in late November but according to her latest social media post, she’d jump at the chance to redo her nuptials thanks to the drama that broke out with Jersey Shore: Family Vacation castmates Jenni “JWoww” Farley, Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi, and Deena Cortese.

Related: JWoww’s BF Professes His Love For Her After That Messy Incident With Angelina

As we’ve been reporting, the aforementioned reality TV stars served as bridesmaids to Angelina on her big day, but the joyous occasion quickly turned sour after the gals upset their friend with a nasty, mean girl-esque speech at the reception and made fun of her.

Apparently, things got so bad that Pivarnick straight up left her own party before coming back to scream at the show producers who were filming the wedding. She also reportedly ignored the women for the rest of the night.

It appears that painful memory isn’t going anywhere and Angie alluded to this when she posted a shot from the event to her Instagram account.

Alongside a photo kissing her newly-minted hubby, she wrote:

“Two weeks married @chris_e_piss_e my love .. We def need a total redo of this day for many reasons. I love u and your companionship. ❤️❤️❤️ #mylove #redo”

As seen, (below):

The bride and groom look lovely together in the photo (above) and one wouldn’t even know how messy things got at their ceremony judging by the couple’s loving embrace.

But as Pivarnick hinted at in her caption, there were many reasons why she’d love a do-over!

Heck, we’d feel the same way if people we thought were our friends used a big moment like that to make jokes in poor taste! After the wedding, an insider explained the serious transgression to Us Weekly and noted:

“Deena, Snooki and Jenni, in their speeches, made some jokes about Angelina. The audience booed them. Their jokes were all in good fun, but they didn’t land and some didn’t think they were kind.”

Deena actually addressed the bad behavior in a since-deleted IG post where she insisted their crew’s speech was “not meant to be malicious” and instead, a friendly “roast.”

“Listen I understand your all upset about our speech but we also included nice things in it as well. We thought since Angelina always says ‘I never take myself seriously’ she would truly laugh at the stuff we said .. clearly we were wrong .. we’re friggen human .. people make mistakes. [sic] We truly thought she was going to laugh and right after we went into how lucky we are to have her in our lives and she’s the sister we needed in the house.”

Well, seemingly *good* intentions aside, we can all agree there’s a time and place for everything and it’s clear Pivarnick felt like they crossed the line when they reportedly called her “trash.”

Apparently, this beef is ongoing as the Us source added Angelina is still not speaking to the ladies. As for whether or not she’ll actually go through with a wedding redo, that remains to be seen!

Maybe invest that time and energy into enjoying a nice honeymoon and putting the all the drama behind you? Those hurtful words can’t be unsaid but you can choose to move forward and focus on your own happiness.

Perezcious readers, would YOU want another go at your nuptials if they played out like Angie’s did? Let us know in the comments section, (below)!

Sorry ‘Jersey Shore’ Fans — Snooki Says She’s RETIRING!

Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi is saying goodbye to the good times at the Jersey Shore!

On the most recent episode of her podcast, It’s Happening with Snooki and Joey, the 32-year-old star revealed she is retiring from the hit MTV show that launched her career and cemented her place in pop culture history.

…but WHY?!?!

Related: ‘Jersey Shore’ Just Turned 10! — See The Cast Then & Now

Snooki’s an OG cast member, having been a part of the reality TV program since it first aired ten years ago in 2009 and has been featured in just about every spin-off that’s come out after the franchise really took off, so what changed that would make her want to quit now??

After expressing gratitude for her time spent on the show, she revealed:

“So here comes my breaking news, you guys. There’s reasons why I’ve come to this decision… it’s definitely a hard decision… I’m gonna throw up. OK, you guys, I love you so much and don’t hate me for my decision, but I have to do what’s best for me at the moment, and I am retiring from Jersey Shore.

The starlet continued to break the bad news, telling her podcast listeners:

“I am not coming back to Jersey Shore [Family Vacation] for a season four, if there is one. And there’s a lot of reasons why, but the main reason is really, I’m just like… I just can’t do it anymore.”

Too much partying and over-the-top drama? Or, perhaps she’s all GTL-ed (gym, tanning laundry) out?

The momma of three went on to explain how leaving her kids to film is “really really hard” on her. Plus, her little ones are the real reason why she’s tried to quit “every single day.”

“I hate being away from the kids, I don’t like partying three days in a row, it’s just not my life anymore. And I wanna be home with the kids. I don’t mind a here or there going to a dinner or whatever, but it’s just really hard on me to leave the kids and film the show.”

As our readers know, Snooki and her husband Jionni LaValle welcomed their baby boy Angelo James this past May — the little one joined the pair’s 7-year-old son Lorenzo and 5-year-old daughter Giovanna to round out their family of five.

It sounds like she really wants to take a step back from filming to focus on family and we can’t exactly blame her for it either!

“Mawma Bear & her Cubs 🙏🏽🙏🏽” / (c) Snooki/Instagram

As we hinted earlier, there is a bit more to this story though…

The Snooki Monster!

The podcast host also admitted to some deep concerns with her image, noting she wants to come off as a “good person” on the show, but “lately” it’s been “very drama.” She explained:

“Our show, Jersey Shore, is about family and about making fun of each other and having a good time and laughing, and just knowing that it’s all in good fun. And lately, it’s just like, everything is so serious, and when it comes to our show it’s not about like, team this, team that, and fans are against one another when it comes to a cast member. That’s just not how the show works and that’s how it’s becoming.”

Well, she’s not wrong!

The latest season of Jersey Shore has been filled with plenty of dramatics especially in the wake of the s**t show that went down at fellow cast member Angelina Pivarnick‘s recent wedding.

Snooki said things have taken a scary turn in recent weeks, too, and revealed she’s been getting death threats from angry viewers who aren’t pleased with her behavior on TV:

“I just need to do what’s best for me right now and right now I’m just not comfortable filming that show anymore with the direction it’s going, with all the drama and getting death threats and getting death threats to my children… over this freaking reality show that’s not even that serious. And people take it too seriously to where I’m getting with the kids. And my store, people want to picket it. They want to boycott it and [are] leaving reviews that I have bugs in my store. It’s just a lot and it’s not something I signed up for with this show.”

Wow. Crazzzy to hear such things! The threats on her life AND her speedy, unfortunate departure.

She wrapped things up noting there are “no hard feelings when it comes to the production or MTV” and her pals on-screen including Mike “The Situation” SorrentinoRonnie Ortiz-MagroDJ Pauly “D” DelVecchioVinny Guadagnino, and Jenni “JWoww” Farley, will certainly miss her — but it’s time!

With a personality as big as hers, we hope she doesn’t stay out of the game forever!

Brody Jenner Has A New 20-Year-Old Girlfriend — See Her Sexy Photos!!

Brody Jenner and Josie Canseco are officially no more!

As reported by Us Weekly, the 36-year-old is now dating 20-year-old model Allison Mason. After being spotted at sbe Nightingale‘s grand reopening party in El Lay together in late November (see the photos HERE), the outlet has confirmed the two are an item.

Vote: Do You Consider Brody Jenner A Playboy Or A F**kboy?!

So, what do we know about the new lady in his life? Luckily, she did a Q and A last month with Maxim which offers up plenty of insight! The Scottsdale, Arizona native revealed to the publication how someone can catch her eye (maybe Brody gave this a read, LOLz):

“Some serious eye contact, confidence, a nice smile and humor.”

The girl’s got assets! / (c) Allison Mason/Instagram

And we wouldn’t be surprised if we spotted the pair going scuba diving together (#TBT to Jenner and Josie went horseback riding in Montana) since she divulged that would be her dream date:

“A day of scuba diving followed by margaritas on the deck. I’ve been obsessed with diving since i was little. But realistically, somewhere with a nice atmosphere that’s easy to connect without too many distractions. Really just something simple like drinks, live music, or something fun to actually go do.”

Taking a look at the stunner’s Instagram account reveals she was enrolled as a pre-med student at the University of Southern California (Olivia Jade, what’s good?) last fall, but hasn’t posted any photos rocking her cardinal and gold as of late, so perhaps she’s taking time off to pursue modeling?

Gotta hand it to Brody, at least he’s consistent! / (c) Kaitlynn Jenner/Josie Canseco/Allison Mason/Instagram

Also present at the same El Lay event as Brody and Allison? Kaitlynn Carter! As we previously reported, the Foray founder made a cameo at the hotspot reopening. Per an insider who spoke with Us, it seems as if the formerly engaged couple understandably wasn’t feeling too warm and fuzzy around each other. The eyewitness revealed more (below):

“Both were situated on opposite sides of club, Brody hanging with his boys … Kaitlynn tried to keep a low profile while hanging out with her gal pals who kept watch on [Brody].”

Apparently, the 31-year-old exited the venue “hand in hand” with “a new man,” so it seems she has since fully bounced back from the MTV star AND Miley Cyrus. No word yet on who the mystery dude was, but we’re sure it won’t be long until we find out!

Jenelle Evans Is Coming Back To ‘Teen Mom 2’!

Did YOU miss seeing Jenelle Evans on episodes of Teen Mom 2? Well, you’re in luck!

The controversial reality TV star is reportedly set to return to MTV‘s hit show just weeks after announcing her plans to divorce David Eason. The 27-year-old was previously let go from the cast, but it sounds like cutting ties with her allegedly abusive (and admittedly dog-killing) baby daddy was all it took to get back in the network’s good graces!

Related: Jenelle’s Ex David Eason Is Now BROKE & Selling Handmade Knives For Cash…

According to an updated TV Guide listing, Evans will be on deck for part two of the show’s reunion special airing on December 10.

The upcoming episode’s description seems to hint at plenty of juicy drama for die-hard fans, too! It reads:

Jenelle returns to discuss her final season; Kail and Vee look back at their tumultuous past; Briana calls out Devoin; and Chelsea opens up about her postpartum issues.”

ICYMI, part one of the segment aired this past Tuesday but it sounds like they saved the really good stuff for next week.

C’mon. We know you’re dying to hear Jenelle potentially spill some tea!

It was only a few months ago in May that MTV announced it had cut ties with the 16 & Pregnant alum and her soon-to-be ex-husband after the controversial killing of the couple’s French bulldog Nugget made headlines.

In a statement issued to media outlets, it was revealed they officially stopped following Evans and her fam over a year ago:

“MTV ended its relationship with David Eason over a year ago in February 2018 and has not filmed any new episodes of Teen Mom 2 with him since.”

They used very careful language to further explain the situation:

“Additionally, we have stopped filming with Jenelle Eason as of April 6, 2019 and have no plans to cover her story in the upcoming season.”

That last bit almost makes it seem like MTV knew they’d be circling back to the mother-of-three at some point, doesn’t it? “Plans” can change at the drop of a dime and they had to know fans would be interested in hearing Jenelle’s side about the downfall of her marriage.

Here’s to hoping we hear all about that and more!! Especially since the starlet is still getting into it with her co-stars on social media these days, too.

Cheers to cashing another check from this upcoming ‘Teen Mom 2’ appearance! / (c) Jenelle Evans/Instagram

So, What About David?

Well, the 31-year-old former pipe inspector and welder still has an active restraining order from his ex and has since changed career paths to selling knives on eBay. Eason is also focused on telling his “truth” lately, too.

Related: David Eason Says He ‘Wasn’t In Love’ With Jenelle & ‘Much Happier’ After Split

In the wake of this news, David took to his Instagram and shared a throwback pic from when he was 15 years old, with a caption that implores followers to see him for who he really is.

Ch-ch-check out the shot here:

(c) David Eason/Instagram

And read the disgraced TV star’s words (below):

“This is so embarrassing to post and a bad picture at that. My 15 year old skinny ass with a mop on my head, vitiligo just starting to appear on my face. I apparently had a girl beside me … And some jewelry in my ears. But what nobody sees is the fact that this was a 15 year old boy who had a full time job, bought a car before I had license. I even had my own house in three different places around this time. Moving from rental to rental yea, but hell I know some grown ass men that STILL do that. I would be married and about to have my first child in just 3 more years after this picture was taken. I’ve always had it tough on my path through life. I learned to get through by focusing on the day I have been given and learning from my past. So go ahead, laugh it up just remember nobody knows my story. I’ve been handed the shit end of the stick more than anyone I know but I always make it through one way or another. God bless everyone who believes in me, I can’t wait to give you my truth!”

Sorry, but everyone has a sob story. NOT everyone takes it out on innocent animals. Moving on!

Are YOU excited to see Jenelle on the reunion special, Perezcious readers? Let us know if you’ll be tuning in and sound OFF with your thoughts about this tumultuous pair in the comments!

Celebrate The ‘Jersey Shore’ 10th Anniversary By Looking Back At The Cast Then & Now!

It feels like just yesterday Jersey Shore was premiering on MTV... that is, if yesterday was 10 YEARS AGO!

The hit reality show, originally starring Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino, Ronnie Ortiz Magro, DJ Pauly “D” DelVecchio, Vinny Guadagnino, Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi, Jenni “JWoww” Farley, Sammi “Sweetheart” Giancola, aired for the very first time on December 3, 2009 — and it wasn’t long before it became a defining moment in pop culture history!

Running for six seasons until 2012, the series also featured Angelina Pivarnick and Deena Cortese, and was also filmed in South Beach, Florida, and Florence, Italy. Yes, you’re not limited to GLT-ing (gym, tanning, laundry) just down the Jersey coast!

The show’s success inspired numerous knockoffs, like the UK’s smash hit The Only Way Is Essex and the ill-fated Deep South version, Buckwild. But the original is still the greatest.

So now a decade later, where is the cast now?? Of course, MTV’s recent revival answered a lot, but here’s the quick rundown…

Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino

If we’re going to start with a then-and-now, it’s gotta be with The Situation!

Mike joined the Jersey Shore as a bright-eyed 27-year-old with a 10-pack for abs from Manalapan, New Jersey. It wasn’t long before he and his nickname were a hit — just maybe not so much with his fellow cast members!

The Situation usually found himself in something of a situation with the rest of the group, but he remained with them until the end of the series in 2012 when he revealed his addiction to prescription drugs. He entered rehab that March but left only a few weeks later. After relapsing again in 2015, he entered rehab a second time.

The now 37-year-old remains sober, though he did face hard times in 2014 when he was indicted for tax fraud. After marrying his high school sweetheart, Lauren Pesce, he served an eight-month sentence in January 2019. Sorrentino was released from prison in September 2019. Since his return, he and his wife have been trying to start a family!

Jenni “JWoww” Farley

Jenni, another constant on the show, gave viewers plenty of drama when the then-23-year-old arrived at the Jersey Shore house in a relationship. It wasn’t long before her old guy was out of the picture, and she was the most eligible bachelorette in the tri-state area!

But by season three, she had found love again, this time in Roger Mathews. Meeting at Karma nightclub, it was clear the two had a connection. In 2015, they married after welcoming daughter Meilani in 2014, before she later gave birth to their son Greyson in 2016. Sadly, the parents decided to go their separate ways in September 2018, just a few short months after JWoww revealed her Greyson’s autism diagnosis earlier that year.

By this past April, 33-year-old Jenni started dating Zack Clayton Carpinello, a 24-year-old wrestler she knew from her past. They unfortunately split after some Jersey Shore: Family Vacation drama involving a costar spilled out off-camera — and some antics captured by the cameras told her a different story than her man!

Sammi “Sweetheart” Giancola

Oh, Sammi! She truly was the jewel of Ron’s eye!

At just 22, Giancola moved into the house, where she captured everyone’s attention with her tumultuous on-again, off-again relationship with Ortiz-Magro! It wasn’t just the fans who felt involved in their coupling, but the rest of their castmates, too, who weren’t sure when it was time to meddle or not.

Still, she and Ronnie made it last, later moving in together after the series ended. Like we all saw coming, they did end up breaking up again in 2017, and the self-proclaimed “sweetest bitch you’ll ever meet” started dating Christian Biscardi in April 2017.

Sammi was the only cast member to NOT sign back up for MTV’s reboot, and an Us Weekly source at the time was perfectly blunt explaining why at first:

“She is super happy with him and she didn’t want to do the show mainly because of Ronnie. She didn’t want the drama, the reliving of the relationship… It would of [sic] been a big problem for her new relationship if there were any drama with Ronnie, and her new guy is more important to her than the show.”

The now-32-year-old did end up addressing her choice to be MIA in an Instagram post, writing:

“I have chosen not to join the show this season because I am at a completely different place in my life right now focusing on my business and relationship. I am not the same person as I was when I was 22. At 31, I am currently extremely happy in every aspect of my life and want to avoid potentially toxic situations. However, it was a difficult decision as I love my roomies. I’ve decided to focus on me, my future and what truly makes me happy. I will forever be grateful to Jersey Shore and everything it has brought to me! I’ve just decided to live my life for me these days. Also I am forever grateful & thankful for all of you!! Special shoutout to my fans, but I’m not going anywhere11 Follow me and stay tuned you never know what I could be up to next!”

As it turns out, another insider revealed she had no regrets or FOMO about missing Jersey Shore: Family Vacation:

“She’s so happy that she didn’t do the show now. She’s happy with her life and has moved on with her boyfriend. He’s the one. They have a great life together and have their own business. She doesn’t regret not going back on for a second.”

Which brings us to…

Ronnie Ortiz-Magro

Where do we even begin?? While he sometimes goes by “Ron,” most fans know and love Ortiz-Magro as “Rawwwwn,” as Sammi used to call him when they were arguing!

As we discussed, the two had a very rocky relationship throughout the original series, and as it turned out it didn’t get any easier for him when he joined back up for the reboot!

Guess going from his 20s to his 30s didn’t change him all that much, at least in the romance department…

His life certainly turned when in 2017, his girlfriend Jen Harley became pregnant with their first child. She gave birth to a baby girl, Ariana Sky, in April 2018, but having a child didn’t solve any of their problems. Between allegations of cheating and sadly, domestic violence, Ronnie has really been through it all in just the past couple of years. In January 2019, he even entered a rehab center for depression and alcohol.

An arrest in October 2019 didn’t help, and he was charged with seven misdemeanors: domestic violence, brandishing a deadly weapon, criminal threats, willful child endangerment, false imprisonment, and two counts count of resisting arrest.

Paul “DJ Pauly D” DelVecchio

The oldest of the original gang, Pauly came down to Jersey from Rhode Island as a 27-year-old aspiring DJ.

Besides filming for the show, he made his dream of being a professional disc jockey come true!

In more personal news, the 37-year-old was also blessed with welcoming a little girl in 2013, Amabella Sophia Markert, with a woman with whom he had a one-night stand.

Such is the life of a Pauly D.

Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi

(c) MTV & Instagram

Another Jersey Shore partier turned parent is Snooki, who shares three kids, Giovanna, Angelo, and Lorenzo, with husband Jionni LaValle.

But the 32-year-old lived a different life when she first starred on the original series in 2019…

At just 22, she was a wild party girl who ended up being arrested and charged with disorderly conduct in 2010! We mean, she was the most infamous one in the group — and considering this cast that’s saying something!

It’s a moment many fans will find hard to forget!

Of course, Nicole managed to bounce back when she met and hooked up with her now-hubby during season three. The rest is history — sweet, sweet history!

Vinny Guadagnino

Not one for scandal, Vinny also entered the house at 22! Becoming BFFs with Pauly D seemed like destiny, especially when they hosted their dating show, A Double Shot At Love, in 2019 — but sadly, neither of them seemed to find what they were looking for.

Since his time on the revival series, Guadagnino has become more of a sex symbol than ever, even doing a guest residency on the the world-famous Chippendales show in Vegas this past April!

Angelina Pivarnick

Anyone else remember when Angelina got kicked out of the shore house during season one because she refused to work??

Ah, to be 23 again!

That could have been the end of Pivarnick’s Jersey Shore story, but she returned to the series again for season three and lasted until season six. Seemingly never clicking with the rest of the cast, she had several altercations with her co-stars over the year… including when she rejoined for the reboot!

Somehow still fighting over boys, the 33-year-old inadvertently caused the breakup of JWoww and her most recent beau… Meanwhile her own love life is going great as she just married her fiancé Chris Larangeira late last month!

Deena Cortese

Deena came onto the original series in season three thanks to her friend Snooki, despite auditioning to be on the first season! At least she finally made it??

In 2017, she married Chris Buckner and they welcomed a baby boy in January 2019.

So, Perezcious readers?? How are U feeling now that you’re caught up on the last ten years?

David Eason Claims He ‘Wasn’t In Love’ With Jenelle Evans, Says He’s ‘Much Happier’ Now After Split

David Eason isn’t mad, he’s actually laughing… or something.

That’s what he wants the world to know, at least, in one of his first public comments since splitting from reality TV star Jenelle Evans late last month. And even though it appears the momma is the one who initiated the breakup at the time, David is making it clear he’s actually happier without her, and it’s better she’s gone.

Related: Jenelle Gets Temporary Restraining Order Against David Amid Divorce Drama

In a recent update to his public Facebook page, the former reality TV costar shared some of his thoughts, claiming both he and his 12-year-old daughter Maryssa are doing better after the split, as you can see (below):

“Glad u people think I am taking this so hard. Just so u all know I am so very much happier and so is Maryssa! Finally peaceful!”

Maryssa, of course, is David’s daughter from a previous relationship; she stayed with him after Jenelle left last month. The Teen Mom 2 alum took two-year-old daughter Ensley, whom she and David share, with her when she left for good.

Related: Farrah Abraham Reacts To Jenelle’s Sudden Split!

As you can see (below), when the avid hunter and gun nut posted that eyebrow-raising status to his social media page, his account was flooded with comments from fans, friends, and followers as well:

And it was in one of Eason’s responses to a comment where we also (supposedly) learned that the 31-year-old wasn’t in love with Jenelle any more at the time of the breakup:

“I’m not heart broken. I’ve realized I wasn’t in love and there are much better people out there for me.”

Hmmm… That may be true, of course.

It may also be a guy who got dumped who’s now trying to save face on social media. Ya know???


It’s pretty clear Jenelle has (thankfully) moved on. An insider dished to E! News about her transition back into single life, noting the future looks a little brighter now for the 27-year-old without her controversial ex in her life:

“She is doing really well now that she is away from David and North Carolina. The kids are not just fine. They are thriving. It is an atrocity what they have all been through.”

No kidding.

And Evans maaaaaybe has a new (old) love interest brewing, too, so perhaps there’s something sweet waiting up ahead for the reality TV maven??

Did Jenelle Evans lie about her dog?
After splitting from David, Jenelle is finally free as a bird! We just wish Nugget were still around to enjoy the good life, ya know? 😞😞😞 / (c) Jenelle Evans/Instagram

What do U think, Perezcious readers: is David really in a better place now after his split from Jenelle, or is he just trying to save face online? And is his ex destined for bigger and better things after finally making the change, or will she soon enough go back to her old ways in one way or another?
