Meri Brown: I Surrender to God! And I’m Ready to Move Forward! – TK

Meri Brown is relaxed, rested… and apparently turning to religion at the moment.

The veteran Sister Wives star took off on a solo road trip a few weeks ago, getting away from her troubled marriage in order to listen to audio books and “think about life,” as Meri herself described it.

It sounds like she only just got back, too.

And it also sounds like the vacation provided this TLC personality with a great deal of perspective.

In an Instagram post this week, Brown uploaded a series of photos from her time away… including her beachside, sitting near a fire pit and hiking with her loved ones.

“Days by the beach, nights by the fire, all of it surrounded by people I love!” Meri began in her caption.

“The time I spent on the Oregon coast last weekend was fulfilling, relaxing, invigorating, rejuvenating, all the things my body and soul needed.”

The 52-year didn’t mention Kody at all, but TLC viewers who watched Season 16 witnessed just how stressful Meri’s marriage to the father of 18 has become of late.

The spouses haven’t even slept together in 10 years. They’re just friends at this point.

Continued Meri in her message:

“It’s interesting and revealing on days and weekends like these, what your heart and mind can let go of, and at the same time, what can fill you up, and the inspiration you can have for your future.

“Coming home with a mind a little more clear, a heart a little more at peace, excitement about my plans and dreams ahead of me, and ready for the doors that I’m positive will open up for me.”

Brown didn’t delve into any details behind these dreams.

But she’s continually insisted that she’s doingg fine… that doesn’t need a man to be happy… and that she isn’t pathetic for standing by Kody.

“I’m learning that as I surrender my hopes and dreams to God and the universe, and as I move forward with intention, doing the work that needs to be done, that the doors will continue to open,” Meri also wrote.

“I expect nothing less, and nothing but the best.”

Despite everything has said to the contrary, Meri also still has some expectation that things will improve between her and Kody.

We have no idea why, really.

“It just kind of came down to that we’re friends, which I guess is a good thing. It’s a good thing,” Meri said on an episode of the TLC series.

“But I don’t know, I guess I just kind of have hope for more than that.”

She isn’t going anywhere, either.

“If I quit and I walk away, then it’s not going to get better,” Meri concluded on this topic at one point, stating on air:

“I’m not going anywhere, y’all. You’re stuck with me, whether you like it or not.”

LPBW: Isabel Leaves Roloff Farms Amid Property Dispute? – TK

When Little People Big World took over TV, the audience couldn’t get enough of The Roloff family. In fact, all the LPBW cast members i.e. Matt and Amy Roloff along with their kids Jeremy, Zach, Molly, and Jacob became the talk of the town. However, all the kids grew up and went their separate ways and stopped living in their famous ‘Big House’. However, there was speculation that Jacob and his wife Isabel have returned to live on the farm. Now the latter has come clean about this and said they don’t. Did they leave again? Keep reading to find out more.

LPBW: Isabel Roloff Says She & Jacob Aren’t Living On The Roloff Farms?

Although they are quite active on their social media profiles, LPBW couple Isabel and Jacob rarely share about their personal lives. However, since so many of their posts on Instagram were from the Roloff Farms, viewers began to assume they have gone back to live with the famous patriarch i.e. Matt Roloff. TV Season & Spoilers reports that the young mother recently opened up about this rumor on her Instagram stories.

Lately, a lot of goats are giving birth to babies on their family farms. As a result, the famous wife began updating her followers about it. In one of her posts, the LPBW star said that she has to constantly go to the farm to find out about the baby goats. Then she ended up revealing that she doesn’t live on the Roloff Farms, contrary to “popular belief”.

That’s when some LPBW viewers began to speculate that their place of residence must be close to the Roloff Farms. Before they began dating, Isabel often shared online that her house used to be close to the famous property when the couple was in school. Therefore, it is a possibility that the family-of-3 is living in a place that is close to both their families. Therefore, they can easily travel to the farmland when needed. In contrast, other viewers think that they are not living in the property “as of now” and most likely move in in the near future. Alas, there is no certainty about it as the couple hasn’t publically addressed this matter yet.

LPBW: Isabel Gives A Glimpse Of Her Beautiful Blue House

As there were rumors on the internet about Jacob and Isabel moving to the Roloff farms, they intensified after she shared some new pictures. Apparently, she took to her Instagram handle to share exterior shots of her house. In fact, viewers were in awe after seeing the place. Furthermore, the family had decorated it beautifully with warm-colored walls, wooden furniture, and lots of plants.

Moreover, the Oregon native shared these images right before her birthday. Additonally, her Instagram story also contained an exterior shot of her house which was in the color blue. Then she expressed that she is feeling “blessed” before her birthday. However, now the LPBW fanbase knows that their house isn’t within the Roloff Farms as they are living nearby. Keep checking TV Season & Spoilers for more such LPBW news.

‘Jersey Shore’ Viewers ‘Stunned and Frightened’ by These Iconic Show Moments – TK

Jersey Shore was well known for capturing some of the most outrageous moments ever seen on reality tv. However, some scenarios were even too disturbing for die-hard fans to stomach. Some Jersey Shore viewers admit they were “stunned and frightened” by some of the series’ most troubling and iconic moments, which continue to live on in syndication on MTV. They shared some of these unforgettable scenarios on social media.

‘Jersey Shore’ featured young adults living together in a shared house
The show’s premise was simple. Find twenty-somethings who loved spending the summer at the Jersey shore. Make sure they like clubbing and having a good time. Then, have them live together in a house where they have to work at a local business to secure their residence. Film them 24/7 to capture all the good and bad of their relationships on camera.

While MTV’s The Real World was the first to pull back the curtain on what a reality television show could be, Jersey Shore was one of the first that made real celebrities of its cast.

Nicole “Snooki Polizzi, Jenni “JWoww” Farley, Deena Cortese, Sammi “Sweetheart” Giancola, Angelina Pivarnick, Vinny Guadagnino, Paul “Pauly D” DelVecchio, Ronnie Ortiz-Magro, and Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino became huge television stars.

Their stars continued to rise throughout the series six seasons until 2012 when the show aired its final season.

However, with thier popularity, a more prominent spotlight was shone upon the cast throughout the good and bad moments captured by MTV’s cameras. Some of these have become legendary in the show’s lore and continue to live on in syndication.

‘Jersey Shore’ viewers were ‘stunned and frightened’ by these iconic moments

In a Reddit post titled “what episode or part of Jersey Shore or Jersey Shore Family Vacation stunned or frightened you the most?” fans weighed in on what they believed were the most unforgettable moments of the MTV series.

“The Mike and Ron fight in Italy. Mike gets a concussion, and Jenni’s curled up in the corner on a bed facing the wall with her hands over her ears. The image of Jenni, Mike wide-eyed in that scene, the pure hatred in Ron’s voice while threatening Mike, Pauly, and Vinny, defeated and helpless. That was a real moment I was not ready for,” wrote one follower.

“Snooki getting punched? WOW. It was so graphic that it’s since completely censored. Even if you buy the DVDs (yes, I have the whole set, that scene’s blacked out). That was one of the worse things I had seen on reality TV. She is 4’8″. Standing on a chair, she was shorter than that guy,” penned a second viewer.

Other troubling moments which were difficult to endure

Fans spoke of other Jersey Shore moments they claimed were difficult to bear.

“When Ronnie destroys all of Sammi’s stuff, a broken Sammi confronts him with her glasses. That breaks my heart every time,” claimed a Jersey Shore fan.

“Jenni getting shoved by Roger in the club, causing her to injure her foot, and not a single male roommate took up for their ‘sister’ and justified it by saying “girls shouldn’t get involved.” a viewer explained.

“I can’t say that anything on the show ever stunned or frightened me,” wrote another Jersey Shore fan.

Jersey Shore: Family Vacation, the Jersey Shore spinoff, is currently on hiatus.

Sister Wives: Kody Brown Wants More Kids? Is The Nanny The Fifth Wife? – TK

Kody Brown loves to shower his traditional “Mormon” beliefs. The Sister Wives celeb keeps chattering about polygamy. However, with recent feuds in the family, it seems like he has no relationship except with Robyn. Likewise, he is also confused about where he stands with polygamy. He is at that point if he wants to continue. Meanwhile, Kody’s desire to have more children is resurfacing. Will he bring in a fifth woman just to bear a child? Tune in to find out.

Sister Wives: Kody Brown Could Be Wondering To Have More Children

Kody Brown is a traditional polygamist. The Sister Wives celeb follows the Mormon religion and acts accordingly. Likewise, the desire to have children comes from the same. Last season the TLC audience saw Robyn and Kody discussing having more children. As of now, Robyn has five children, two from Kody and three from her ex-husband.

Therefore, papa Brown is adamant about bearing more children. That’s because Mormon followers believe in having at least five children with each wife. Hence, he shares six children with Janelle and Christine, with Meri only one child. And with the fourth wife, only two. So, to act on his beliefs and religion, fans think papa Brown may bring in a fifth wife for the same.

Apart from this, an insider revealed that Kody Brown is planning for a fifth wife. And Robyn Brown could be at “child-bearing” age, but she isn’t ready to. So, as the patriarch believes in having “functional” families, he may go out of his way to find a child-bearing wife. Likewise, he won’t be attaining paradise if he does not maintain the wife’s number. So, a fifth wife could be in the way with a child.

Sister Wives: Is Nanny The “Fifth Child-Bearing” Wife?

As much as having another wife or children from Kody creeps the fans, he is adamant about doing so. Although a religious sect cannot be questioned, Kody Brown has done nothing special except for his favorites. Hence, bringing on a fifth wife could derail his relationship with the fourth one. So, who could be the next wife? Sister Wives fans think of Robyn’s favorite, “The Nanny.”

The Nanny has been an integral part of the family during the lockdown period. Fans already believe that the Nanny could be a “secret” surrogate before. Although that didn’t happen, now, things are different. Papa Brown seems to be reflecting on multiple topics, and having more children is one of them. So, the Nanny could be Kody’s fifth child-bearing wife. For more updates on reality TV shows.

‘Yellowstone’ Star Kevin Costner Shares an Emotional Speech During the 2022 Oscars — HN

The actor stole the hearts of fans during his speech before presenting the best director award to Jane Campion on Sunday

Kevin Costner had a powerful moment during the 2022 Oscars on Sunday night.

While presenting the award for best director, Costner, 67, shared a nearly three-minute-long speech, in which he detailed what directing and filmmaking means to him.

His speech began with, “You know, about a half-mile from here, I saw my first full-length adult movie. I know what you’re thinking, but I was 7 years old, and I was away from my parents and wanted to have some fun.”

“It was a cowboy movie called ‘How the West Was Won.’ And what I witnessed that afternoon in the Cinerama Dome was perfect. The curtain, when we still had them, opened to a film almost four hours long. It had an intermission where the score continued, subtly signaling at one point that the second half was about to start.”

“I don’t know where everyone went, but I wasn’t going to move an inch. I decided that I would not give up my magic seat. I was determined that I would not miss a minute. And as I sat in that dark that afternoon 60 years ago, all I really knew was that I was in careful hands. Little did I know that three directors would be responsible for that epic moment in my life. They fired my imagination, and they captured my heart. That’s what can happen when you direct a movie. You can change a mind. You can change the trajectory of a life, of a career. You can capture a heart. But you can’t do it alone.”

“And directors, tonight’s directors all know the possibilities. They know what’s at stake. It’s why they give their precious time. It’s why they choose to fight through the long days, and the longer nights, and the endless questions, and the inevitable second guessing that comes from those who would do it differently if given half a chance. These five directors have all managed to stay the course. They have all held the line and masterfully given us the gift of a single vision, and for that we honor them.”

His deep speech sparked responses from fans and colleagues online.

Comedian Patton Oswald joked in a tweet on Sunday night, “Costner’s speech was incredible. Believe me it’s all anyone’s gonna be talking about tomorrow.”

The legendary comic book creator, Robert Liefeld said, “”Kevin Costner is an American Treasure. What a speech.”

The “Yellowstone” star is not a newbie to the Oscars. In 1991, Costner was nominated for three Oscars, taking home awards for best director and best picture for “Dances with the Wolves.”

Before the award show on Sunday night, Costner took to his Instagram to share throwback picture of that special night in 1991.

“I have a lot of special memories of the Oscars, but nothing tops this night in 1991 with Dances With Wolves. Really excited to be at the Annual Academy Awards presenting this weekend. Good luck to all the nominees—savor this tremendous recognition!” Costner captioned the image.

Waka Flocka Talks Split From Wife Tammy Rivera on Tricky Podcast: ‘I Could Never Hate Her’ — HN

Waka Flocka Flame and his wife Tammy Rivera called it quits after eight years together, the former Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta star confirmed earlier this month following heavy speculation — but unlike some celebrity couples, they’ve parted ways amicably.

During a recent appearance on the It’s Tricky With Raquel Harper podcast, the Flockaveli rapper opened up about his breakup with Tammy Rivera for the first time, revealing they simply grew apart but remain on good terms. From Waka’s perspective, he doesn’t understand why couples can’t break up without things having to get messy.

“That’s my best friend, that’s my dawg,” he said when asked about their relationship. “People want it to be all kind of fighting and hating — hell nah, we just grown! Like, why is it that when people evolve for the better, why do it gotta be something attached to it that’s slimy as spit?

“It’s disgusting when you see some people like, ‘You’re glowing, girl. Fuck him!’ Or ‘Fuck her, Waka. She ain’t shit!’ Why it gotta be so nasty when we ain’t nasty? It’s love, though. Me and Tammy stamped.”

Waka Flocka continued to shower his ex-wife with kind words, saying there’s nothing she could do that would make him hate her because she blessed him with their 16-year-old daughter, Charlie, who she had from a previous relationship. The Atlanta native believes raising Charlie made him a better man.

“The biggest blessing I had in my life — I can always say — is Charlie,” he said. “I got the blessing to raise another human being, especially a young woman, and see all the challenges that women go through. That shit deep.

“That’s what actually made me feel like a role model, a hero. That’s when I started to be like, ‘Damn, I’m actually number one in somebody’s life? That’s crazy!’ That felt good. That felt better than hitting a million people on stage. It made me appreciate the million people on stage. It made me appreciate everything in my life raising Charlie.”

He added, “So just to go back to your question about Tammy, it’s nothing in the world Tammy could do in the world that would make me hate her. Just for the fact of Charlie. Literally, nothing. Nothing on planet Earth.”

Waka wasn’t so forthcoming with his answers when asked whether he and Rivera will try to work things out and get back together, though. “Let’s get another question going,” he replied, dodging the question.

Tammy Rivera recently addressed her split from Waka Flocka Flame on Instagram Live, telling fans she and the “Hard In Da Paint” rapper are able to co-parent better now while living separately. She also confirmed they will continue filming their WE tv show Waka & Tammy: What the Flocka.

“Him and Charlie good, we good,” Rivera said. “We are not together and that’s cool. We’re good, we’re in good spaces.”

The only original cast member who has not returned as a cast member of MTV’s Jersey Shore: Family Vacation shocked fans with an Instagram post where she claimed she was “so excited to be back” for another season. However, her comments had a twist her followers didn’t expect.

When did Sammi Giancola last appear on ‘Jersey Shore’?
Giancola last appeared on Jersey Shore in 2012, the final year the popular MTV reality show aired.

At the time the show came to a close, the cast had filmed together for six seasons. Their journey took them from the shore town of Seaside Heights, New Jersey, to Miami, Italy, and back to Jersey, where the show concluded.

Alongside Mike Sorrentino, Paul DelVecchio, Nicole Polizzi, Jenni Farley, Deena Cortese, Angelina Pivarnick, Ronnie Ortiz-Magro, and Vinny Guadagnino, Giancola became one of the network’s most recognizable faces.

However, after six seasons living life in the public eye, Giancola took a step back from the spotlight and focused on starting a small business.

Giancola last appeared on television alongside her castmates in episodes of Snooki & Jwoww and participated in the 2017 E! memorable titled Reunion Road Trip: Return to the Jersey Shore.

However, upon news the series would return to MTV in 2018, Giancola declined to be a part of the cast. She subsequently took to Instagram to reveal why she did not participate in the reboot.

Is Sammi Giancola joining the ‘Jersey Shore: Family Vacation cast’?

In the caption of an Instagram post dated March 27, Giancola posed behind the counter of her store, Sweetheart Styles. The brick-and-mortar location is on the Ocean City, New Jersey boardwalk.

Giancola wrote, “Working so hard to get Sweetheart Coast open for you all for another wonderful season! So excited to be back in beautiful Ocean City, NJ, again! Come find us on the boardwalk; the opening date will be announced soon!”

Fans were hopeful Giancola’s caption teased a potential return to the MTV show that made her a reality television star.

However, her comments were directed toward what she hoped was another successful season for her store.

Fans react to Sammi Giancola’s news

In the comments section of Giancola’s post, fans supported the former reality star in her small business. However, many hoped her post had to do with returning to Jersey Shore: Family Vacation as a cast member.

“Aww, I thought this caption meant you were returning to the Jersey Shore cast,” wrote one Instagram user.

“It’s crazy! You’re the only one with her original face from the original cast, and you look younger than all of them. Wish you’d come back,” penned a second fan.

“So happy for you Sammi. Bless you and your amazing store, Sweetheart Coast,” claimed a third fan.

“Proud of you, Sammi. You’re one of my favorite people from the show. Always take the high road. Good luck with another season at the shore,” exclaimed a fourth follower.

‘Blue Bloods’ Showrunner Spills Beans on Creation of ‘Secret’ Regan, Joe Hill (Exclusive) — HN

 

The most significant change in recent Blue Bloods history is the introduction of Joe Hill, a new character played by Will Hochman. Joe arrived in Season 10 and was revealed to be a long-lost member of the Reagan family no one, not even Frank, knew existed before. A real-life incident for a member of the Blue Bloods family inspired Joe’s creation, showrunner Kevin Wade revealed in a recent PopCulture.com interview.

In the Season 10 episode “Family Secrets,” Sean (Andrew Terraciano) did one of the mail-away DNA tests and learned he had a cousin. At first, Sean jokingly thought Jamie (Will Estes) or Erin (Bridget Moynahan) may have had a secret child. However, Paula Hill (Bonnie Sommerville) visited Frank’s (Tom Selleck) office and revealed that she and the late Joe Reagan had a son. Joe Reagan was k*lled by corrupt police officers before Season 1 began and never knew he was a father.

While Joe’s introduction did remind viewers of where Blue Bloods all began, that was not the driving force behind the story. According to Wade, a member of the show’s team did a 23andMe, and they learned something about their family that “rocked” their world. “We thought, ‘Well, maybe there’s a Reagan out there that nobody knows about,'” Wade recalled. “It really started there.”

Later, writer and executive producer Siobhan Byrne O’Connor figured out how to work that idea into the show. She wondered what would happen if Sean did a DNA ancestry test for a school project and found the lost Reagan, Wade explained. Then, they decided that the lost Reagan would also be a police officer, but one who grew up without the direct influence of Frank. “He’s got to be more like the loose cannon rogue… cop,” Wade said. “It really just grew organically from there.”

Hochman, who starred in Let Him Go with Kevin Costner and performed on stage, was cast. Wade called Hochman a “wonderful actor” whose performance in “Family Secrets” proved he needed to return. Hochman has appeared in nine episodes, most recently in the Feb. 25 episode “Allegiance.”

Hochman is not the only new face to appear on Blue Bloods recently. Musician Jimmy Buffett appeared in a story involving Danny (Donnie Wahlberg). Buffett isn’t a fan of the show, but Wade has known him for almost 30 years and offered him a role. The “Margaritaville” singer liked the idea and agreed to do it. The Blue Bloods team also “just went after” Lyle Lovett when they came up with the idea of Danny working with a Texas Ranger. Lovett has “such an iconic look that we brought him on, and it worked great.”

Tony Danza also showed up in the “Allegiance” episode. Wade knew he was a good actor who could play the party of a veteran police officer with a troubled son, but they also know the Blue Bloods audience is familiar with Danza. Max Weinberg, the drummer for Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band, starred in two episodes simply because he is a fan of the show and wanted a part. Weinberg plays Mario Vangelis again in the upcoming April 1 episode, “Hidden Motive.” “It’s been great fun to either go after people who we like, or people who we find out watch the show and reach out and say, ‘Hey, if you’re watching it would you like to be on it?'” Wade said. Blue Bloods airs Fridays on CBS at 10 p.m. ET. Past episodes are available on Paramount+.

The Best Blue Bloods Season 9 Episode According To IMDb – TK

“Blue Bloods” expertly merges elements of police procedurals with family dramas to produce something wholly unique. A lot of the time, with procedurals, the show deals with found families. People on the force wind up creating their own group dynamics, sometimes because they don’t get the support they need from their home lives. However, that’s not the case with “Blue Bloods.”

The Reagan family has disagreements and arguments like anyone else, but they’re ultimately there for each other. They support one another’s endeavors, and when they need some sound advice, they have no problem asking for advice at the Sunday family dinner. You can tell from a single scene how much the Reagans love one another, and honestly, some of the best moments from the series have nothing to do with police work. Instead, they deal with the Reagans coming together as a familial unit.

That’s why the highest-rated episode of “Blue Bloods” Season 9 primarily centers on the family, specifically a wedding that was a major turning point for the Reagans.

Fans adored Season 9’s Something Blue

By a fairly wide margin on IMDb, “Something Blue,” which chronicles the wedding day of Jamie (Will Estes) and Eddie (Vanessa Ray), earned the highest marks out of any other Season 9 episode with a rating of 8.7/10, with over 270 people voting. Some users liked the episode so much that they wrote full reviews about how much they loved the wedding, including one person who stated, “It’s nice to see the more family dynamics in a police show. A refreshing out of the ordinary and perfect episode that was heartwarming. A perfect 10/10 from me!”

It’s not just casual viewers who have a soft spot for the episode. During a sit-down chat with CBS, Marisa Ramirez, who plays Detective Maria Baez on “Blue Bloods,” said that her favorite episode of all time was “Something Blue.” She spoke about the emotion behind such a significant plot point of the show, “Just the church scene, all of the cast members there, everyone dressed up. I … really was crying. It was emotional. It was sweet. It was fun. It was just great to all be together in a scene and kind of be invited to such a momentous occasion.”

The Season 9 finale changed the dynamics of the Reagan family forever, so it’s understandable fans would take well to the celebration.

Vanessa Ray’s Favorite Episode Of Blue Bloods – TK

The Reagan family on “Blue Bloods” have been through a lot over the years. They’ve gone face-to-face with murderers and put their own lives on the line for the safety of the general public. Each episode is riveting in its own right, but a few stand out in the minds of both viewers and the principal cast.

For a special presentation on the CBS website, each leading actor talks about which episode they like best. It’s a tall order to fill, especially seeing how the show is presently on Season 12. That’s over 200 episodes to bear in mind, but the stars don’t seem to have a problem coming up with their favorites at a moment’s notice. For instance, Sami Gayle, who plays Nicky Reagan-Boyle, said her favorite was a Season 2 episode where she had a chance to dance and sing alongside a Broadway legend.

The episode held special significance for Gayle, and that’s precisely what you see in Vanessa Ray’s favorite “Blue Bloods” outing, too. The Eddie Janko-Reagan actress also spoke to the cameras about why her favorite episode happens to be Season 10, Episode 10, “Bones to Pick.”

Vanessa Ray had a blast dressing up as Santa

On the surface, “Bones to Pick” may seem like an odd choice to have as a favorite. After all, the main storyline involves a woman’s body being discovered at a men’s-only club. All the while, Frank Reagan (Tom Selleck) has to deal with an illicit affair between two members of law enforcement, but in the interim of all that, Eddie has a fairly festive time.

A bit of spontaneity played a role in making the episode stand out in Ray’s mind. As she recalls in the interview, “It was my favorite because I got a text message from our costumer. And he said, ‘We need you to come in early because we have to get you fitted for a Santa costume last-minute.'” The scene where she’s walking with her partner, both dressed in the spirit of the holiday season, is a nice reprieve from the darkness that permeates the rest of the episode. No doubt it was a ton of fun getting into costume and walking around the streets of New York as such.

Perhaps it should come as no surprise that many people’s answers in the video have to deal with the most fun scene they got to be a part of while filming “Blue Bloods.” There’s ample drama, to be sure, but sometimes, it’s just nice to kick back and relax with something a bit more easygoing.
