Bachelorette Rachel Lindsay Drags Contestant Lee Garrett For His Racist Ways During The Men Tell All Special — Recap HERE!

Rachel Lindsay may be the best Bachelorette EVER! We say this with confidence as the Dallas-based attorney took one of her former contestants to task for being racist AF during the Bachelorette: The Men Tell All special. But, hey, we're getting ahead of ourselves. Related: A Bachelor Vet May've Just Spoiled Who Wins Rachel's Heart! As you likely [...] Rachel Lindsay may be the best Bachelorette EVER! We say this with confidence as the Dallas-based attorney took one of her former contestants to task for being racist AF during the Bachelorette: The Men Tell All special. But, hey, we're getting ahead of ourselves. Related: A Bachelor Vet May've Just Spoiled Who Wins Rachel's Heart! As you likely know, the episode before the final rose ceremony is always a reunion sit down where the lead for the current season of the ABC dating competition is able to get closure from his or her past suitors. The Tell All episode is normally super dramatic, so obviously, this time around was no different. Let's not waste anymore precious time and jump into it all... DeMario Scrambles To Explain That Girlfriend Drama It seems like a lifetime ago when DeMario Jackson was caught having ghosted his girlfriend in order to go onto the Bachelorette. We're sure the Dancing With The Stars hopeful is missing the days when this was his only drama. In case you forgot, Mr. Jackson was given the boot after a former flame came onto the show and said the executive recruiter was pretty much her boyfriend. So... what did DeMario have to say for himself?? Unapologetically, Jackson told the audience: "That's called a side chick. You can boo me. I'm just keeping it real." Hmmmm. Chris Harrison wasn't about that blasé answer as he clapped back: "I feel like now you're really distancing yourself from Lexi. I had this guy DeMario tell me he dated her and had been in a relationship." While DeMario was quick to deny this accusation, the Bachelorette host was vehement he had the confession on "tape." As for the other men in the house, they laid into Jackson for causing the drama and for making Rachel emotionally closed off during filming. Dramaaaaa! The Kenny Vs. Lee Feud Lee Garrett and Kenny King were in a feud for pretty much the entire first half of season 13. There's no denying that the Nashville native did everything in his power to get under the professional wrestler's skin, so unsurprisingly, a lot of the guys sided with Kenny in this drama. Dean Unglert even said in defense of King: "Kenny might have been the most well-liked guy in the house and it's hard to say the same about Lee. I will forever have Kenny's back in that situation. I think that Lee made a point to badger certain people." Fair point. Still, not EVERYONE was #TeamKenny, as DeMario added: "The Lee that I know was a very genuine guy." On his feud with Lee, Kenny argued that Lee's actions were out of fear that he didn't "belong." Thankfully, Lee took the criticism and apologized to Kenny. The singer/songwriter even admitted that he "should have been a better friend." The father-of-one accepted Lee's apology but noted he and his former frenemy are unlikely to "sit and kick it" anytime soon. Speaking of Kenny's daughter, Harrison then brought out the youngster and shared that ABC was sending the two of them to Disneyland to celebrate the Las Vegas resident's birthday in style. We have a feeling this was the network's way of apologizing for casting a racist on the reality show! Lee Apologizes For His Racist Ways Just when you thought we were done with the Lee drama, Chris had to bring him up on stage. As you likely know, on top of Garrett's offensive behavior on the Bachelorette, the 30-year-old also made headlines for some seemingly racist and misogynistic tweets he sent in his past. Lee was quick to apologize for being so ignorant, but Dean wasn't buying it as he called out his peer for fanning the fire online. The baby faced contestant dished: "You should have done this [and apologized] two months ago." Several of the other suitors agreed with this sentiment as a few pondered if Lee would feel sorry if he hadn't been caught. Nonetheless, Lee stood by his apology and added: "I feel like I have a lot to learn...If I hurt anybody in any way, with a bad joke, I apologize. I did things that were wrong.... I completely denounce that and I denounce that Lee. I want to learn... I am sorry for saying things when I was not educated and ignorant in those subjects." The apology seemed to win over most people, especially Kenny, as he vowed to help educate Lee. The two even hugged it out! Justice For Dean Fan favorite Dean was able to get some closure over his failed relationship with Rachel as the former flames were able to sit down and talk about what happened between the them. On how blindsided he was by Rachel's dumping of him, Unglert noted: "She's always going to have a piece of my heart, but I understand that door is closed." Poor guy. Miz Lindsay then came out and admitted to Dean that it was "very, very difficult" to say goodbye to him. Rachel's words weren't enough for Dean as he hit back with: "I'm still confused about why you told me you were falling in love with me and then I got the boot four days later." The legal expert tried to articulate her decision, but at the end of the day, the Venice resident was left unconvinced. Regardless, Dean chose to let the whole thing go -- which is a good thing since he's Bachelor In Paradise bound. Rachel Weighs In On The Lee Controversy The final showdown of the night occurred between Rachel and Lee as she called out her former beau for being racist. After scolding Kenny for handling the Lee situation poorly, Rachel came for Lee and told him directly: "I feel like I'm in such a unique position, I have the opportunity to be a spokesperson for African Americans, for women, and I just feel like you had such an amazing opportunity to be surrounded by different people and different cultures and you didn't take advantage of that. You can meet me backstage and I'd be more than happy to give you a black history lesson and a lesson on women's rights." You tell 'em, girl! Lee apologized once more, but this time to Rachel specifically, as he relayed: "Today, I learned how great the people that I was with actually are and I just, I want to apologize to you too." Rachel accepted the apology and the drama was officially put to bed. What do YOU think?? Were Lee's many apologies sincere?? SOUND OFF in the comments (below)! [Image via ABC/Twitter.].....»»

"American Idol" Judges Katy Perry, Luke Bryan & Lionel Richie Share Thoughts on Las Vegas Shooting on "GMA"

I think that everybody feels like their heart has just been ripped out of their chest,” Katy, 32, expressed. “We just don’t know when it’s going to happen again and we’re all trying to figure out the answers. I’m not saying I have the answers, and I pray every day. But the one thing we have to remember is prayer without action is powerless.” “We have to have some action,” Katy continued. “We have to take an unfortunate, good, hard look at what our rules and our boundaries are with gun reform. No one is saying, ‘Take away your guns,’ but we just don’t necessarily need assault rifles, assault weapons.” “We see the fans. We look at the faces every night on stage. We live for that,” Lionel, 68, added. “They blow the kisses, they sing every word to us. To think for a moment we are now getting to a stage where live performances are in jeopardy — the worst nightmare we ever have in life is something like that would happen.” "Prayer without action is powerless." – @katyperry, @LionelRichie, and @LukeBryanOnline share their thoughts on the Las Vegas shooting pic.twitter.com/sNLNvPz2EF — Good Morning America (@GMA) October 4, 2017 FYI: Katy is wearing a Christopher Kane dress.

Lionel Richie Thinks Scott Disick Is The "Worst Person" For Sofia Richie To Date!

As we previously reported, the new American Idol judge revealed he's "scared to death" over the two dating, but still kept his cool considering his 19-year-old offspring is seeing a 34-year-old. Related: Sofia & Scott Get Hot & Heavy At The Beach! Sounds like he's a lot more worried than he's coming off though, as a People source divulged more of the singer's feelings about Sofia and Scott's new relationship: "He thinks Scott is the worst person she could ever see and that he raised her better than that." Yikes! No wonder Lionel isn't too excited about the pair being together: "He thinks she should have more respect for herself as a young woman. Lionel knows Scott's playboy ways and he doesn't want to see his daughter get hurt." And the dad-of-three may be right, as the insider continued: "Sofia is much more invested in the relationship than Scott. Scott isn't treating this as a long-term relationship whatsoever. He is just having fun. Sofia wanted commitment from him, so he committed to be her ‘boyfriend.'" Meanwhile, Kourtney Kardashian isn't totally out of the picture: "He still has Kourtney at the top of his mind all the time, and he is still texting and flirting with other girls. Sofia is very young and naive and doesn't know what she's in for. She feels like she's in the in-crowd right now and loves that Scott has swagger and money and that he loves to travel and party." The two only went public in September, so time will tell, right?? [Image via Andres Otero/Judy Eddy/Derrick Salters/WENN.].....»»

That's one thing that was made clear when Katy Perry, Lionel Richie, and Luke Bryan assembled together for their first interview on Good Morning America. On Wednesday, the judges -- or, "the dream team" as Katy put it -- were brought out on the ABC morning show where they revealed just how much work it takes for an aspiring singer to become America's next superstar. The interview then took a serious turn as the trio addressed the harrowing mass shooting in Las Vegas on Sunday, and spoke on where they believe America should go from here. Video: Katy Addresses Vegas Massacre In Concert Richie said he worries about fans' live music experiences being taken away by fear of violence, while Bryan admitted to feeling "nauseated" for the horrors that his dear friend Jason Aldean saw that night. But Perry was a bit more outspoken, saying that while she prays everyday, "prayer without action is powerless." In addition to sending thoughts and prayers, the pop star said we as a society "need to take an unfortunate good, hard look at what our rules and our boundaries are with gun reform." Looks like these judges are already copacetic. Ch-ch-check out their first interview (below). [Image via ABC.].....»»

Money Drama! American Idol Had To Expand Its Budget To Secure Final Judges Thanks To Katy Perry"s Crazy Paycheck!

The American Idol revival seemed to be tripping from the start after paying a cool $25 million to secure first judge Katy Perry. As we reported, Katy Kat's healthy paycheck royally screwed over the budget for the reality singing competition, leaving very little wiggle room to negotiate with the other two judges. Related: Lionel Thinks Scott Disick Is The 'Worst Person' For Sofia To Date! The production eventually booked Lionel Richie and Luke Bryan to complete the superstar trio, making it look like everything is running smoothly on the surface. But behind the scenes, execs are apparently worried that this overpriced concert might completely blow up in their faces! An insider told Page Six that Katy's deal -- not to mention Ryan Seacrest's hefty $15 salary -- left mere "pennies" for fellow judges, cutting into costs so deep that execs had to expand their budget to land the rest of the talent. The source explained: "ABC was originally going to spend no more than $50 million on talent. They had to expand their budget for Lionel." The network source told the publication that it was CEO Ben Sherwood who signed off on Katy's staggering paycheck without thinking of how it would impact the rest of the production budget: "Ben Sherwood blew the budget on Katy without thinking how that would impact other areas of the show budget. He gambled on her because of her appeal to a younger audience and huge social-media following. But Katy is effectively taking money from the other judges, who then had to be paid way less." We guess he was looking through those Kitty Purry tinted glasses. Can you really blame him? Video: American Idol Judges Discuss Las Vegas Shooting On GMA Understandably, Katy's deal caused some financial drama with Bryan and Richie. The source added: "The negotiations with Luke and Lionel have been fraught and difficult because of [Katy's paycheck]. They expected similar deals to Katy, but are, in fact, getting a hell of a lot less. In the end, ABC had to cough up a second round of money to sign the other judges." Just how much did they lowball the other musicians? A mere $2.5 million each! This measly offer offended Richie and Bryan, of course, who refused to signed their deals until ABC coughed up more dough. The source continued: "As of last week, their contracts were not done. Sherwood authorized ABC to cough up more money. They're both making about $7 million each now. This has become a very expensive show. If ‘Idol' doesn't work, it will blow up big time in Sherwood's face. If it does work, he's a genius." Despite multiple sources detailing the money drama, an ABC rep claimed to Page Six that it's "not true. Ben never had to get involved, and the deals were done within the original ABC talent budget for the show." Hmm... Either way, if they wanna compete with The Voice, they gotta fork up that Adam Levine money!.....»»
