Clues Come Out Regarding Why Rodrigo Alves was Kicked Off 'CBB'

The latest season of Celebrity Big Brother in the United Kingdom ended earlier this week, where actor Ryan Thomas bested Kirstie Alley and several others to take home the win. 

One of the biggest controversies that happened during this season was when "Human Ken Doll" Rodrigo Alves was ejected from the show on day 10. He later stated that he walked off due to detachment issues from his mobile phone, friends and family, but the people behind the scenes at CBB said that definitely wasn't the reason why.

Now some light has been shed regarding why this could've possibly happened thanks to fellow housemate Dan Osborne, who placed 3rd on finale night. For those unaware of who Dan is, he's a popular television personality across the pond who appeared on the semi-reality program The Only Way is Essex in 2013. 

“There was an incident in the house, it was just something inappropriate, I didn’t appreciate it," Dan said to The Sun. "I don’t really want to talk about it. I’ve had stories told about me, so I know it’s not nice. I don’t want to do that to anyone else. I’d rather not elaborate. It wasn’t scary for me just a bit uncomfortable.”

Dan also revealed that he himself had nothing to do with Rodrigo's removal.  “No, no, not one bit,” he said. "They basically just told me that he had left the house and that was it. We were all really well looked after, they took care of us really well.”

So will the truth ever come to light in this matter?

 

Winning His 3rd Straight Emmy Award, RuPaul Underscored A Message Of Positivity

RuPaul picked up his third consecutive Emmy Award Sunday night  for “Outstanding Host” for RuPaul’s Drag Race.

True to form, RuPaul asked the audience to join him, in the moment: “Everbody say ‘love!'” he announced with the audience joyously joining in.

“Now drive that down to 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue,” he added.

 

 

Backstage, Mama Ru was asked about the show’s message of positivity in today’s politically charged social climate.

Ru didn’t hesitate saying, “The divisiveness is new to you, to the white folks. But for outsiders, for us, the gay, black — we have survived and thrived in this kind of atmosphere all of our lives.”

“At Drag Race we’ve always done what we do, and we will continue to do what we do,” he continued. “It’s really about looking at life as a big choice and you can see the glass as half-full, or half-empty — one choice is correct and the other choice will be painful.

“I choose joy — that’s why our show is so successful,” he said.

Since its debut in 2009, RuPaul’s Drag Race has become a pop culture phenomenon introducing the world to drag queens who compete in various challenges that reveal their “charisma, uniqueness, nerve and talent.”

It’s noteworthy that none of RuPaul’s co-nominees were straight, white males: W. Kamau Bell (“United Shades of America with W. Kamau Bell”), Ellen DeGeneres (“Ellen’s Game of Games”), Heidi Klum and Tim Gunn (“Project Runway”), and Jane Lynch (“Hollywood Game Night”).

RuPaul's Drag Race also won for Outstanding Directing for a Reality Program, Outstanding Costumes for Variety, Nonfiction or Reality Programming and Outstanding Hairstyling for a Multi-Camera Series or Special. 

The show is looking to make history by becoming the first unscripted show to win in both the host and the "Reality-Competition Series" categories in the same year.

Facing steep competition, RPDR is considered by many a front-runner against The Amazing Race, American Ninja Warrior, Project Runway, Top Chef and The Voice at next week's Primetime Emmy Awards.

The 70th Primetime Emmy Awards will air live from the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles on Monday, Sept. 17, starting at 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT on NBC.

Is 'Big Brother' Contestant JC About To Be Evicted?

Has Big Brother contestant JC Mounduix finally gone too far?

The 28-year-old apparently has fans ready for him to be ousted from the 20th anniversary season for his antics.

PopCulture.com has reported on a recent live feed conversation between contestants Tyler Crispen and Kaycee Clark.

Crispen (who is straight but an ally of the LGBT community) let it be known that he was tired of JC cuddling with him while he tries to sleep.

"JC is not sleeping with me tonight," said an adamant Crispen. "He like, forces me to the side so I'm like in this much bed," signaling to the edge.

"I don't mind cuddling up with somebody if their cold, but if someday has a lot of body heat... JC has a lot of body heat," he added. "I hate being hot at night."

 

 

Now, we think its great that Crispen is cool enough to not have a problem with a gay man crawling into bed with him, but we’d also be chapped if we weren’t getting enough sleep.

Additionally, folks watching the 24 hour live feed have seen JC (who’s openly gay) touching, cuddling and making inappropriate moves on Crispen while he slept.

Fans have taken to social media to say it’s time for the Florida resident to get booted from the Big Brother house.

One fan said the only reason JC is getting away with a lot of his antics is because he’s 4’8” and “looks like a child.”

 

 

Another fan expressed aggravation that JC seems to be getting a “good edit” from the network.

 

 

And this isn’t the first time JC has raised the ire of fans.

In past weeks, he’s attempted to touch females housemates' genitals with an ice cream scooper saying, “Open your vagina - it feels good” as his fellow contestants protested.

And its not just the women in the house JC is touching inappropriately.

He also approached Crispen while he was getting a massage and cupped his genitals saying, “This is my kind of party - I wanna help!”

Even before the current season began, Mounduix was making waves in the media when YouTube personality Austen Fletcher interviewed him at L.A. Pride where he defended Donald Trump.

“I’m just not going to be one of those ignorant people going around screaming, ‘Boo Trump’ and stuff when actually good things are going on right now for gay people thanks to him,” Mounduix told Fletcher in a video that has garnered almost a million views.

“All gay people should focus exactly on what’s beneficial for us,” he added. “If we just go around screaming, ‘the president is bad, blah blah blah,’ that is not okay. Because why? Because Trump is pro-gay.”

We've previously written about the Cuban-born cutie here.

Let’s hear from Big Brother fans - is it time for JC to get the boot?

Drag Star Courtney Act To Host A British Reality Show About Bisexual Dating

Courtney Act is set to host a British dating show about LGBTQ people.

The famed drag star and Big Brother UK winner has been announced to be hosting a 10-part series titled The Bi Life.

The series will follow a group of bisexual, pansexual, and sexually fluid singles as they live in Barcelona, Spain.

The show is being mirrored like the popular dating show Love Island, according to QNews, as the series will watch the cast bonding, partying, and flirting their days away.

As for Courtney Act, she shared nothing but excitement for the series.

“As if this summer hasn’t been hot enough, we decided to crank it up another notch with The Bi Life on E!,” she said.

“It’s high time there was a dating show for the large number of young people today, like me, who are attracted to more than one gender. In 2018, we know that sexuality is fluid and sharing the stories and experiences, the laughter and the love making, of young bi people is so important.

“So get ready to see the true stories of bisexual singles, who are the largest part of the LGBTQ+ community, but the least known.”

The series will premiere on the E! channel in October in the UK and Ireland.

"Project Runway" Is Returning To Bravo In Season 17

After 11 seasons on Lifetime, Project Runway is moving back to Bravo for upcoming season 17. NBC Universal made the announcement Monday at its upfront in New York City. “Project Runway is coming back where it all started; it’s coming home on Bravo,” said the network’s Andy Cohen.

The fashion design competition, hosted by supermodel Heidi Klum, was a smash hit from the get-go at Bravo, where its first five seasons aired from 2004-2008. In a shocking move that prompted a string of lawsuits, The Weinstein Co. struck a deal to move it to Lifetime without giving Bravo a chance to match Lifetime’s offer.

This is just the latest installment of the fallout in the wake of The Weinstein Co.’s downfall after co-founder Harvey Weinstein was exposed as a serial sexual predator last year via Pulitzer Prize-winning stories in The New York Times. A+E Television Networks, the parent company of Lifetime, terminated its deal with TWC on Jan. 10, ending their commitment to air any further seasons of the show.

Project Runway was created by Eli Holzman. In 2008, it won a Peabody Award "for using the 'television reality contest' genre to engage, inform, enlighten and entertain.” All seasons thus far were filmed in NYC, with the exception of season 6, filmed in Los Angeles.

The program has been nominated for dozens of Primetime Emmys; Klum and Tim Gunn won for Outstanding Reality Competition Host in 2013. The popularity of Project Runway has also spawned spinoffs like Under the Gunn and Project Runway: Junior, and several international iterations all over the globe.
