Bravo has ceased filming with ‘Real Housewives’ star Jennie Nguyen after offensive posts

Published

on

“Real Housewives of Salt Lake City” cast member Jennie Nguyen has been dismissed from the program after social media users found several “offensive” postings allegedly made by the reality television star, according to Bravo. The “offensive” social media postings were promptly removed.

After a Reddit user posted hundreds of screenshots of the material she was accused of sharing on her page, several individual memes that had not been confirmed by Nguyen reappeared.

The TV network made the following statement on its social media account, “Bravo has ceased filming with Jennie Nguyen and she will no longer be a cast member of ‘The Real Housewives of Salt Lake City.’ We recognize we failed to take appropriate action once her offensive social media posts were brought to our attention.”

At the end of the tweet, Bravo promised to “work to improve our processes to ensure we make better informed and more thoughtful casting decisions.”

In September, she began appearing on the second season of “Real Housewives of Salt Lake City.” Her storyline focused on her refusal to have another kid after several miscarriages.

Fans were shocked to find Nguyen’s Facebook posts from 2020, in which she criticized Black people and supported anti-Black Lives Matter and anti-vaxxn rhetoric, after seeing her character on the show. The memes discovered on her Facebook page include support for conspiracy theories, Blue Lives Matter, and President Donald Trump.

Vulture published an article on Jan. 21 revealing the now-defunct Facebook page, as well as a Reddit user who had posted hundreds of screenshots of the material Nguyen is said to have shared on her page.

In one of the screenshots shared by a Reddit user, Nguyen was seen sharing an Islamophobic meme. It mocked Colin Kaepernick for his religion and stance he took in 2016, when he began kneeling during the national anthem at NFL games as a protest against racism and police brutality in America. Another photo included phony and defamatory allegations about George Floyd’s murder, and a separate post featured photos of many black males labeled as “animals.”

The other photograph shared by Nguyen, which was leaked to The Daily Caller, showed photos with the Confederate flag and incorrect voting statistics from the 2020 election.

Before she was fired from the “Real Housewives of Salt Lake City,” Nguyen published a written apology on her Instagram account, recognizing that her Facebook page included hurtful and insulting postings. She did not specify or allude to specific memes. “I want to acknowledge and apologize for my deleted Facebook posts from 2020 that resurfaced today,” she wrote. “At the time, I thought I was speaking out against violence, but I have since learned how offensive and hurtful my words were.”

She added, “It’s why I deactivated that account more than a year ago and why I continue to try to learn about perspectives different from my own. I regret those posts and am sincerely sorry for the pain they caused.”

Nguyen is the second “Real Housewives of Salt Lake City” star to be called out for controversial comments this season.Mary Cosby, who was accused on the series of stealing money from congregants and being a “cult” leader by her ex-church members, defended herself in the Dec. 5 episode by telling cast member Lisa Barlow, “It’s not fair to put me with someone so … like, when I think about Jen (Shah), I see heartless, I see a thug. Like, you know, those Mexican people that make all those drugs.”

After the episode aired, Cosby posted on Instagram: “I made a poor decision in my choice of words. Please accept my apologies.”

In another scene from season two, she referred to Nguyen, who is Vietnamese, as having “beautiful, slanted eyes.”

It was reported that Cosby did not attend the season two reunion, which took place on Jan. 6.

On January 13, Bravo posted photos on its website that verified Nguyen’s attendance at the reunion. In February, the confessional episode will premiere.

What Louis Tomlinson Thinks About A Possible One Direction Reunion

Published

on

After breaking out in the media with hits such as “What Makes You Beautiful,” “Story Of My Life,” “Best Song Ever,” and more, 1D took the world by storm (via Digital Spy). However, in 2015, the boy band shocked their devoted followers when they announced that they will be taking a break. According to E! News, the group shocked their fans by announcing that they would go on hiatus in 2015. After Zayn Malik announced his intentions to leave 1D, the band decided to disband in order to focus on their own solo projects.

“They are great friends and fully support one another,” a source said of the group. “They are very aware that they are able to work on their own stuff as well as remain together. This is an exciting time for them creatively and as a group.” However, it appears that at least one member of One Direction was in opposition to the split.

Before the break, Tomlinson told The Guardian that he was feeling optimistic about the band. “In the last year of One Direction, I was probably the most confident I ever was,” he said. “And then it was: ‘OK, hiatus!'” He acknowledged that he struggled against it, but ultimately lost.

Since then, One Direction has yet to record any new music. The group’s future, on the other hand, appears promising.

Did Louis Tomlinson hint at a possible 1D reunion?

According to Cheat Sheet, since announcing the group’s hiatus in 2015, One Direction members have been working on their solo careers and other activities like beginning families. Louis Tomlinson recently spoke out about a possible reunion and left fans wondering if there could be hope for the group in the future, despite Harry Styles, Niall Horan, Liam Payne, and Zayn Malik all remaining quiet on the subject of a reunion.

In 2021, Tomlinson took part in the WIRED Google autocomplete challenge, answering queries about himself that fans most search for on the internet. He went through his tattoos, color of his hair, eye color, and more before finally getting to One Direction. When asked about the group he replied, “Good time in my life. Hopefully, we come back.” The return of an iconic logo inspired fans to believe that perhaps, just maybe, the band was reuniting. Fans also noticed that when Tomlinson referred to 1D as the band he “is” in before correcting himself to say “was,” he made a minor slip of the tongue.

Could Harry’s comments be hinting at a One Direction reunion? Despite the fact that it appears improbable for now, fans have not stopped hoping for the group to reunite and create new music in the future.

Kristen Stewart Discusses Her Upcoming Wedding

Published

on

Kristen Stewart is not your average celebrity, so her engagement to girlfriend Dylan Meyer coming out of the blue was shocking only because she chose to make it public. In November 2021, E! News reported that Stewart was chatting with shock jock Howard Stern when she simply stated, “We’re marrying, we’re totally gonna do it.” The “Twilight” breakout added, “I wanted to be proposed to, so I think I very distinctly carved out what I wanted and she nailed it. We’re marrying, it’s happening.”

The couple was seen holding hands in May while walking through Los Angeles, but they’ve been together much longer. Meyer, who wrote Amy Poehler’s follow-up feature “Moxie,” wished Stewart a happy birthday in her own tweet. “Life sure is sweeter with this cute little family. Happy birthday, kiddo. You knock my socks off,” she wrote on Instagram alongside a shot of the actor snuggling with the couple’s shared dog.

“I can’t wait,” Stewart gushed to Stern in 2019 about proposing to Meyer. “I believe that good things happen quickly,” she added during the show, when she revealed that her fiance couldn’t wait either and was studying how to propose. In fact, the actor said, “When you know, you know.” Stewart and his partner were very happy together, according to sources. The two are now planning their big day together.

Kristen Stewart is eager to make it official

Kristen Stewart discussed her future wedding with fiancé Dylan Meyer in an interview on “CBS This Morning.” Per People, the “Spencer” star admitted that, although they haven’t set a date yet, she also doesn’t want a drawn out engagement. Stewart reasoned, “It’ll happen when it’s supposed to happen.” They’re eager to get it done soon, but Stewart is understandably quite busy at the moment, particularly given her burgeoning Oscar campaign.

On “Live with Kelly and Ryan,” the actor said she’d met Meyer “years ago” but they reconnected just before the pandemic. Describing the proposal as a “pandemic engagement,” Stewart revealed, “We were kind of moving about the world a little more freely at the time. We did have an engagement party, which was nice and lucky and obviously not something we could have done now so I’m thankful for that.” She and Sterling Meyer have a history together that dates back to 2019.

In January 2021, Stewart discussed her distaste for grand weddings during an interview with Stephen Colbert. She added, “I want to have a big party or something. I’m so un-ceremonial. I think we might just go do it this weekend or something, I don’t know, and then, like, just hang out with everyone afterwards,” (via YouTube). She added, “I just want to do it. I’m not a good planner. I can’t make plans for dinner. I like to pivot. You never know where I’m going, man.”
