Victoria F Has A Dramatic History With One Of Peter’s Real-Life Exes | Betches

We’re down to the final four women on this season of The Bachelor, and to say this has been an eventful season would be the understatement of the century. Usually, there might be one or two villains on any given season, but this year, pretty much every woman in that house has gotten her hands dirty at one point or another. Remember champagne-gate? That feels like it was six months ago, so much has happened since. But out of all the craziness going on in that house, none is as interesting to me as the crazy of Victoria F. In six short weeks, we’ve been through a lot with Victoria. The wild encounter with her ex one night stand, Chase Rice. The …

6 Natural Ways To Decrease Anxiety | Betches

Anxiety is like the girl who consistently shows up to your parties uninvited. No one ever asks her to come, but you know she’ll always turn up. For me, that uninvited anxiety is a daily party crasher in my life. Joy. And if you’re anything like me, every living person who learns you have anxiety offers some kind of tip to help reduce anxiety. “I’ve heard weighted blankets really help” or “have you tried drinking more water?” While these all (usually) tend to be genuine tips, the overload of information to help reduce anxiety is, well, anxiety-inducing. So from one anxious person to another, here are some tips that I have found help me, that aren’t just the deep breathing …

‘Vanderpump Rules’ Recap: Are You 34 Or 16? | Betches

Vanderpump Rules, Anyway, you all know what time it is: Pride time! In past years, SUR Pride has brought us Scheana’s ear-splitting excuse for singing, James’s body-shaming, and lots of back-alley conversations. Can’t wait to see what this year will bring! While that will go largely unresolved unless Schwartz somehow reads these recaps and decides to clarify, Sandoval comes over, brandishing rainbow bedazzled motorcycle jackets and sneakers for Pride, and I cannot decide if he had these specially made for Pride or just had them lying around. Both possibilities would track equally. Elsewhere at Lisa’s house, Scheana, Raquel, and Danica are over for some reason. What a motley crew. By the way, shouts out to the Bravo editors, who are …

The Best Shows And Movies To Binge On Netflix This Weekend | Betches

Some months, I can’t wait for my flaky-ass friends to cancel our weekend plans so I can stay in and binge all of the newly added movies and shows I once loved and had since forgotten about, but other months, I wouldn’t be surprised to learn that a bunch of interns pick movie and show titles out of a hat and put them on Netflix. This month is the latter. ‘To All The Boys: P.S. I Still Love You’ ‘The Stranger’: Season One A Little Princess It’s about a little girl, Sara Crewe, who is quite possibly the most beautiful child in existence, but that isn’t important, I guess.

How To Talk About Money At Every Stage Of Your Relationship | Betches

With stemming from money issues or financial infidelitySo, hopefully, we’ve convinced you that having the money talk is one of the most important (and ongoing) conversations you’ll have with a partner, but now, where to start?

Wellness Influencers Are Giving Up WaterHere’s Why That’s Dangerous | Betches

When it comes to diets, it feels like we’ve pretty much seen everything at this point. Over the years, we’ve talked about low-carb diets like Keto, prehistoric diets like paleo, more bizarre options like the Halo Top diet, and my personal favorite, the F*ck-It Diet. Every diet is different, and some are more effective than others, but pretty much every diet can agree on one basic principle: you should be drinking water. But even though drinking water seems like the least controversial health tip ever, there’s officially a diet that disagrees. Today, we’re talking about the Living Water diet, and why it might be the most batsh*t crazy diet yet. Meet Sophie Prana. She’s an Austrian wellness influencer living in …

Welcome back to the Betches’ recap! We’re now on day two, hour four (OUT OF FIVE!!) of this hostage situation otherwise known as ’s production schedule. At this point it feels like these episodes could be used as some sort of war-time torture method, because I would give up state secrets and the location of the last horcrux to not have to micro-analyze one more house disagreement over champagne. With that in mind, let’s just skip the BS and get right into the recap! ended with Shiann dropping a major bombshell on Peter. After her elimination during the Costa Rica rose ceremony she let Peter know that—GASP!—some of the women are not there for the right reasons. I’m not sure …

Both on and offscreen, things are basically a disaster at this point, and today we’re dealing with a whole mess of social media drama that’s all about… Sydney’s high school life. Y’all, I am so tired, but the drama of Bachelor nation waits for no one. On Monday night’s episode, Sydney opened up to Peter about how she was bullied in high school. She told him that she ate lunch in the bathroom every day, and basically had no friends.

Kesha Just Got Dealt A Major Setback In Her Case Against Dr. Luke | Betches

There are certain things that just feel like they should be over by now. This work day, my friend’s toxic relationship, and most of all, Kesha’s never-ending court battles with Dr. Luke. I thought we all established years ago that Dr. Luke is trash (allegedly), and Kesha is a badass woman who should be protected at all costs, no? Well, apparently I missed something, because these two are still hashing things out in court, and today, Dr. Luke won a major victory in one of his defamation claims against Kesha. Dr. Luke and Kesha are currently going to trial in the New York Supreme Court for the defamation lawsuit that Dr. Luke filed all the way back in 2014, which …

UPDATED: More Shocking Moments From Jessica Simpson’s New Memoir | Betches

The latest entry in the celebrity memoir canon is Jessica Simpson, which feels right at this point in her career.

Should You Wait To Have Sex With The Person You’re Dating? | Betches

There are certain age-old questions we all must contend with at one point or another: What is the meaning of life? What is my calling? How long should I wait before sleeping with the new person I’m dating? OK, so the third one may not be quite as existential as the others, but it’s one that has boggled the minds of many a lost soul dater in this day and age. Countless books have been written on the subject, and people like Patti Stanger have made careers out of telling people, most often women, that they shouldn’t get into bed before being monogamous with a partner. But *Oprah voice* what is the truth? There’s no hard and fast rule (despite …

Mattel’s New Self-Care Barbies Are A Whole-Ass Mess | Betches

Has the millennial #selfcare trend gone too far? My bank account says yes, and so does Mattel’s announcement that they are now releasing a line of self-care Barbies. If only we’d had these dolls in the 90s, so my Barbies could go on the South Beach Diet with my mom. Mattel actually partnered with Headspace to create this line, which consists of various nearly identical spa-day playsets focusing on meditation, physical fitness, and self-care by encouraging “daily routines.” Because that’s what kids love: routines. I, for one, can’t wait for them to follow this lineup with a line of Barbies that have gone into credit card debt from getting stoned and convincing themselves they need new bath bombs one too …
