90 Day Fiance viewers slam Ariela for relying on her parents for money and refusing to get a job – TK

Ariela Weinberg is facing harsh criticism from 90 Day Fiance viewers who feel she needs to be more independent and shouldn’t rely on her parents so heavily.

This season on 90 Day Fiance, Ariela and Biniyam Shibre returned to the cast, joining six other new couples. Ari and Bini finally arrived in the US from Ethiopia after Biniyam’s K-1 Visa was approved.

Ariela Weinberg’s parents provide for her and Biniyam Shibre upon their arrival in the US

Upon their arrival in America, Ariela’s parents, Janice and Fred Weinberg, set her and Biniyam up in an apartment just minutes from their New Jersey home. Janice went the extra mile and made sure Ari, Bini, and their son Avi had a two-bedroom apartment with cable and high-speed internet.

However, instead of showing her gratitude, Ariela felt pressured to find a job and a way to pay for the rent and utilities in the apartment. She told her parents that she wouldn’t have chosen a bigger, more expensive apartment with all of the amenities if it were up to her.

Following Sunday’s episode, disgruntled 90 Day Fiance viewers took to Twitter where they voiced their dissent, calling out Ari for relying too much on her parents financially and for not being more proactive about having a plan in place and getting a job; especially while Biniyam can’t work until he receives his green card, which typically takes several months.

90 Day Fiance viewers bash Ariela for allowing her parents to continue to provide for her

“Ariela you should already have a job or plan in place. Wtf” tweeted one viewer who was irritated with Ariela’s lack of planning.

Another viewer who felt Ariela’s parents need to cut the apron strings wrote, “Lol at Ariela moving to the US and her parents STILL paying her bills 🤣”

“Seriously Ariela get it together,” tweeted another viewer who felt Ari’s behavior was childish. “You are 30 years old with a family that your parents pay to support. Time to stop being a brat.”

During the episode, Ariela explained her perspective during a confessional: “Bini and I had the expectation that when we came to the US, everything would be different and new and exciting and it’ll be a chance to just work on our relationship, spend time together as a family, and start over again.”

“But I think neither of us know long-term really how we’re gonna provide for the family and it’s really scary. Like, what if this doesn’t work out?” Ariela added.

Now that Ari and Bini are in the US, it’s unclear what their financial situation is. But, Ariela seems unbothered by it all, as she has been sharing positive and motivating messages with her 371k Instagram followers.

90 Day Fiance airs on Sundays at 8/7c on TLC and Discovery+.

Why Are Brandi Maxiell and Malaysia Pargo From ‘Basketball Wives’ Feuding Right Now? — HN

Basketball Wives has been successfully running since 2010, captivating reality TV lovers everywhere. The show is about a group of friends who have one major thing in common — they’re all either the wife, current girlfriend, or ex-wife of an NBA superstar.

The ladies on the show also share luxurious lifestyles. For the most part, they’ve all got beautiful homes, designer clothes, lavish jewelry, and high-end vehicles. But even though their lives look completely glamorous from the outside, there’s often a lot of drama going on behind closed doors. Case in point: There’s currently a feud going on between Brandi Maxiell and Malaysia Pargo. What exactly is happening? Let’s dive into the details.

Here’s an explanation of the ‘Basketball Wives’ feud between Brandi Maxiell and Malaysia Pargo.
It turns out Malaysia isn’t in the best of places with most of the current cast members of Basketball Wives, though her feud with Brandi is certainly the most dramatic at the moment. According to Urban Belle Mag, Brandi and Malaysia used to be close friends, however, these days, it’s become quite obvious that their friendship has run its course.

Back in the day, Brandi and Malaysia would stand up for each other in moments of need. Now, mutual defense is something that’s not likely to happen anytime soon.

In one scene from Basketball Wives Season 9, Brandi expressed her concerns to Malaysia, saying that she wasn’t comfortable with Malaysia telling people they were on good terms when they weren’t. “You’re telling people that we’re good. That’s where I have a problem,” she said. “I no longer need anyone in my life that’s not really there for me.”

Brandi’s made it clear that she doesn’t want the world to believe that things are rainbows and butterflies when she and Malaysia don’t have the tight-knit friendship they used to have anymore. She also doesn’t feel like Malaysia has been there for her as much as she needed her to be.

“I no longer need anyone in my life that’s not really there for me,” she said.

In a separate setting, Malaysia told Jackie Christie, “If I’m the problem, I’m going to remove myself. I don’t have it in me, I don’t.”

For Malaysia, being involved in drama in any capacity isn’t something she’s interested in. She’d rather remove herself from the situation entirely than have anyone bring her down. As she put it: “Can’t take my joy, b****es.”

This is definitely not the first time Brandi Maxiell and Malaysia Pargo have had drama with one another.
The drama between Malaysia and Brandi didn’t just start up recently. According to The Jasmine Brand, the pair ended their friendship by officially unfollowing each other on Instagram in August of 2021. A source revealed that their friendship was indeed done with, but the reasons for their fallout at the time were left a complete mystery.

The premiere of Basketball Wives Season 10 airs on Monday, May 16, 2022, at 8 pm EST on VH1.

Love & Marriage DC: Why Fans Think Monique & Chris Will Divorce — HN

On Love & Marriage DC, Monique and Chris Samuels are back, and already fueling divorce rumors after a very rocky debut on the new series.

On their new reality show Love & Marriage DC, Monique and Chris Samuels are already making fans wonder if they’re headed for divorce. Fans became familiar with Monique and Chris during their three The Real Housewives of Potomac seasons. While starring in the latter show, the couple welcomed their third child together. However, it was cheating rumors that led Monique to start a war against the cast, which resulted in one of the most shocking Real Housewives brawls in history. After exiting the show, Monique took some time off before returning to a new network with a fresh franchise. However, this time, it looks like Monique is fighting with her own husband, instead of the other women.

Monique left RHOP following the season 5 reunion, where she issued one of the most scathing and iconic reads across all franchises. Monique went out with a bang. The cast had been split following Monique’s hair-pulling fight with Candiace Dillard. Karen Huger and Ashley Darby were the only two willing to continue a friendship with Monique. After a short-lived legal feud with Candiace, which was the result of their fight, Monique returned to the reunion. She used a revealing binder of receipts to expose Candiace and Gizelle Bryant, and departed the franchise, vowing never to return. After a two-year break, Monique is back on reality television, as part of Carlos King’s newest DC addition to his Love & Marriage franchise.

However, Monique’s start on the show was anything but smooth. While the RHOP alum appeared to be getting along well with all of the other women in the cast, the former Bravo star was at odds with her husband Chris throughout the entire season premiere. A clip shared by The Peach Report Daily showed Monique and Chris’ heated exchange because of a counseling assignment that Monique felt he was procrastinating over. “You told me you were going to give it to me in a week and it’s been over a month,” Monique said to Chris, while referring to a list of former NFL player he was was supposed to create. During her confessional, Monique said that after ten years of marriage, she is “triggered” when feeling like Chris “doesn’t want to do the work.”

While Chris was apologetic, Monique became more frustrated with her husband for not doing something she wanted him to do. “There’s no way that we’re going to make it another 10 years if we don’t deal with the issues,” Monique said in her confessional. Viewers were taken aback by the exchange and voiced their concerns. “This scene feels like they’re heading for divorce,” one fan said. Another viewer noted their different wants in the situation. “Monique wants understanding and Chris wants her to not be upset,” they said. While defending Monique, the user said, “she wouldn’t be upset if you understood and didn’t exhibit the same behaviors.” Another viewer felt like their marriage has become “a mess” and bashed Monique, saying “she needs to treat him better!!”

The argument highlighted Monique’s frustration with Chris seemingly brushing the assignment off because he didn’t feel it was important. Chris apologized and showed that he didn’t want to argue. However, Monique wanted to tackle their issues head-on. Ironically enough, it was rumors about her marriage that kicked off Monique’s drama on RHOP. Now, it seems like there might’ve been cracks in the surface that only heightened her defensive response to the cheating rumors. Love & Marriage DC is revealing a new look into Monique and Chris’ marriage, and fans are already speculating about their fate as a couple.

Matt Roloff from Little People Big World is currently going through a lot of changes in his life. Apparently, he is putting a part of Roloff Farms on sale. Well, that announcement sent every LPBW fan in shock. That’s because they were under the view that the place would be a part of the family and the coming generation. With this, Matt also declared that he was willing to retire soon. Hence, viewers began to wonder if this involved bidding goodbye to the reality show or not. Keep reading to know what he had to say.

LPBW: Matt Roloff Wants To Retire! Won’t Be A Cast Member Of The Show Anymore?
Matt Roloff and his prized possession, i.e., Roloff Farms, have been a huge part of LPBW. In fact, his family’s journey began when he and his former wife and his four kids, i.e., Jeremy, Jacob, Molly, and Zach, were living on the farms under one roof. However, as the seasons progressed, all of them grew up and went their separate ways. Therefore, no one was there to buy the farm, and Matt put it on sale. In fact, while saying so, he also talked of taking steps towards his “retirement”.

A post shared by Matt Roloff (@mattroloff)

As a result, viewers began to wonder if he was referring to retiring from just the farm or bidding goodbye to his reality show career too. Apparently, Matt Roloff is one of the oldest cast members from TLC. That’s because he has been associated with the series for 16 years now. As a result, fans began to feel upset about it. However, there is no clarification about it as the star talked of his retirement under his farm sale post.

Hence, it could mean that he was only talking about not being able to take care of the farm anymore. That’s because there was no mention of the show anywhere on the post. Hence, until and unless Matt addresses the matter, there is no verification.

LPBW: Matt & Amy Roloff Offered A ‘Gift Of Equity’ To Zach & Jeremy! They Didn’t Buy The Farm!
On his Instagram post, Matt Roloff opened up about a lot of things about the farm sale. As he wanted his kids to take over the land, he and his ex-wife Amy Roloff even gave Zach and Jeremy the “gift of equity”. Despite this, they couldn’t make the purchase due to having other “investments” and “interests”. As a result, the famous father came to terms with selling a piece of his land and putting it on the market. Evidently, Zach Roloff is still quite upset with this change.

Hence, he took to the comments section to mention his viewpoint. As per Zach, his father was “changing” the narrative to appear as an “okay guy” before the season premiere. In fact, the LPBW star also stated that Matt’s statements are false since his post is very “misguided”. Later on, he ended his comment on a bitter note by stating the family member created all the drama on his own and manipulated everyone for his own gain. Well, viewers will get to see more about their feud in the upcoming season.

The Transformation Of Sami Gayle From Childhood To Blue Bloods – TK

CBS’s popular police procedural drama “Blue Bloods” is gearing up for Season 12. The long-running show centers on the Reagan family, which consists of several members of the New York Police Department. The grandfather Frank (Tom Selleck) is the Police Commissioner, his daughter Erin (Bridget Moynahan) is an assistant district attorney, and two of his sons, Danny (Donnie Wahlberg) and Jamie (Will Estes), serve as an NYPD detective and sergeant, respectively.

Another main cast member who isn’t part of the police force is Nicky, the daughter of Erin and her ex-husband Jack Boyle (Peter Hermann). The actor who plays Nicky, Sami Gayle, has basically grown up on the show — she joined at the age of 14. Though fans are concerned about Nicky’s future and whether she’ll appear in Season 12, Nicky has still earned a spot in the hearts of “Blue Bloods” fans. Gayle has also earned plenty of fans in her own right, both on the screen as well as the stage. Here’s a look at her transformation from her childhood to her role on “Blue Bloods.”

Sami Gayle got her start on the stage

Gayle landed her breakout role as Baby June in the 2007 off-Broadway production of “Gypsy” starring theater legend Patti LuPone. In an interview with Schon! Magazine, Gayle explained how her brother was the one who actually found her the role after she wasn’t able to take a different part due to conflicts with his bar mitzvah. “My brother discovered that they were auditioning for Gypsy with Patti LuPone and we asked my parents if I could go onto an open call,” she said. “I made it through, without ever having sung or acted before and played Baby June in the off-Broadway production, which was soon moved to Broadway.”

In 2007, Gayle starred in the Broadway production of “Dr. Seuss’ How the Grinch Stole Christmas! The Musical” as Annie Who (via Playbill). She was also in plays titled “Oohrah!” and “Family Week,” the latter of which received a less-than-favorable review by Variety. Despite overall lackluster receptions, Gayle’s impressive performances allowed her to transition to the screen soon after her Broadway debut.

Sami Gayle is a dancer

Though Gayle earned recognition for her acting chops early on, she originally set out to be a dancer. According to Refinery29, Gayle attended the prolific dance school Steps on Broadway from the age of 11. She was first recognized in one of her dance classes and was offered a role on the spot, though she had to turn it down due to the aforementioned bar mitzvah conflicts (via Schon! Magazine).

She went on to describe her work ethic to the latter publication, saying, “I started my career as a dancer, I never really considered acting. I loved dance, I would spend four or five hours a night after school from the time I was six to ten, so it was from a young age that I had that kind of work ethic ingrained in me.” And while Gayle hasn’t quite made a big return to the stage yet, she has shown off her dance skills plenty of times on Instagram.

Gayle was in a popular soap opera

It may come as a shock to know that Gayle was only in one TV show before she landed her breakout role on “Blue Bloods.” The popular soap opera “As the World Turns” served as the introduction to plenty of big-name stars’ careers during its decades-long run; Julianne Moore, Marisa Tomei, and even James Earl Jones are among the dozens of stars who have graced “As the World Turns” with their talents (via ABC News).

Gayle is among those who cut their teeth on the soap opera soundstage. At the age of 13, she appeared in three episodes of “As the World Turns” as Hayden Lawson, a teenage beauty pageant contestant. The fact that she didn’t have a mile-long resume before landing a regular starring role on CBS is a testament to her natural talent, and she’s sure to have a long and successful career ahead of her.

The Jamie Storyline Will Estes Wants To See More Of On Blue Bloods – TK

“Blue Bloods” is the popular CBS cop drama starring Tom Selleck, Bridget Moynahan, and Will Estes, among many other talented actors. In addition to being a cop drama, it’s also a family drama about the Reagan family, who just happen to have law enforcement in their blood. It’s ranked consistently well on sites like IMDb and seems to be adored by its fans. Season 13 hasn’t been announced quite yet, but ratings are high and social media is still buzzing about the show, so it’s highly likely that a new season is in the works.

The actors on the show also seem to be planning ahead for the next season. As a matter of fact, Estes (who plays Jamie Reagan on the show) did an interview last fall about what he wants to see for his character in the future. He plays a street cop on the show who has to struggle with some interesting situations at times. And he’s eager to keep things edgy going forward.

Estes wants to explore more of his character’s moral grey area

Estes sat down with The Nerds of Color for an interview back in September in anticipation of the Season 12 debut. One of the first questions his interviewer asked revolved around what storylines Estes would like to explore in his role as Sergeant Jamie Reagan. And he had an intriguing answer ready to go, all about the “grey areas” of his storylines so far.

Estes revealed he likes “seeing Jamie in challenging situations,” and wants more of them. He is proud of the show’s ability to “shine light on parts of us or our society that are difficult to look at,” especially now with the public outcry for police reform gaining momentum (via The New York Times). After all, it’s not like cop dramas exist in a vacuum; According to How Stuff Works, there’s now more evidence than ever that most people’s knowledge of the criminal justice system and policing comes from cop shows.

So if Estes gets his way, “Blue Bloods” may pivot to showing a more accurate portrayal of how law enforcement works in the real world. And it’ll be interesting to see how audiences react to that.

The Saddest Moment In Blue Bloods Season 4 – TK

When you watch a series for over a decade that focuses on the darker themes of humanity, there will inevitably be unbearably sad moments. For a series like “Blue Bloods,” those sad moments feel like they happen in every episode. Each character faces people in their jobs daily who need help.

In Season 4, those moments tend to hit hard as they become more personal for each. For example, Frank Reagan (Tom Selleck) comes face to face with a mother (Karen Allen) who is grieving over her daughter murdered years before, believing the killer is still at large. Elsewhere, Danny Reagan (Donnie Wahlberg) gets pulled into a kidnapping case that brings the father of a girl kidnapped seven years prior out to beg for his help again. Both instances show the writers’ expert ability to make you feel what the characters feel — the grief of the two parents, the empathy of the Reagans, and the knowledge of the agony those parents felt for years.

By the end of each episode, the Reagans typically find a way to rectify the situation and bring peace to those in pain. However, in one episode, despite how hard they try, one Reagan cannot help someone, and the gravity of the situation hits hard. Here is the saddest moment in Season 4 of “Blue Bloods.”

A lesson in futility

Jamie Reagan (Will Estes) may be the purest of the Reagans. He is steadfast in his duty, has an optimism about the difference he can make in his community, and usually follows the rules to the letter. He may also have the biggest heart, often attempting to go above and beyond for many people he encounters on the street.

In Season 4, Episode 5, “Lost and Found,” Jamie and his partner Eddie (Vanessa Ray) go undercover in a jewelry store that has seen a lot of illegal activity. A man takes the store hostage when the store can’t give him a cash refund for a custom ring. As Jamie tries to talk him down, he discovers the man’s fiancée left him; he is at his breaking point. Jamie ultimately talks him down and convinces him to let everyone go, not realizing Jamie is a cop. After making the arrest, Jamie makes a case for Erin (Bridget Moynahan) to give him the benefit of the doubt. Later, Jamie is devastated when the man hangs himself in his cell.

The sadness of this episode is partly the man’s story, as his heartbreak and grief drove him to extreme measures when he had no history of violence or criminal behavior. It is also the moment you see a little optimism leave Jamie. This is a moment when he realizes he can’t save everyone. It’s the first moment you see Jamie Reagan understand the occasional futility of his job.

Tom Selleck Thinks This Is The Most Important Part Of Blue Bloods Family Dinners – TK

“Blue Bloods” is a show about law enforcement, a show about the justice system, and a show about politics. But at its core, it is a show about family. While Frank Reagan (Tom Selleck) and his three children, Danny (Donnie Wahlberg), Erin (Bridget Moynahan), and Jamie (Will Estes), navigate their jobs in the city of New York, some of the more poignant scenes see them navigating their family life as well.

Most of the best scenes in each episode involve one or more Reagan working together, whether it is Frank attempting to impress his decades of police wisdom onto his youngest son, Jamie, or Danny and Erin arguing over the arrest of a criminal. Their work on the job allows the potent familial relationships to seep into every scene from episode to episode.

The Reagan family dinners are used effectively as a tool to further the show’s narrative. Every episode sees the cast sit down at a weekly dinner, putting family first and bonding over life and experience. While these scenes are undoubtedly crucial to the show’s growth and that of its characters, Tom Selleck revealed in an interview that there’s a certain part of these dinners that stands out as the most important.

Family isn’t pretty

Family isn’t always colorful rainbows and flowerbeds, as no one needs to remind you that arguments among family members are bound to happen. These arguments are what Tom Selleck believes make up the most important Reagan dinner scenes, namely the ones that show the debates the family has.

He sat down with Parade to discuss Season 12 of “Blue Bloods,” the “Jesse Stone” TV movie franchise, and his upcoming memoir. “The complications of family are endless. In a family where so many are tied to the business, even Frank’s father has his own opinions,” he said. “What is most important in family dinner is it’s not ‘Kumbaya’; it’s the disagreements.”

The importance of a series like “Blue Bloods” is that it documents the disagreements. These are not simply arguments between family members; they represent social commentary on law enforcement and justice. While Danny bleeds blue and the family is deeply entrenched in the NYPD, debates with the more progressive Erin, Nicky (Sami Gayle), and Jamie keep the series from entering into a one-sided presentation of law enforcement. Instead, these dinner scenes keep a firm footing in bringing to light the issues we face in the real world.
