Lorde ditches her typical grunge/goth/intentionally non-glamorous look on Teen Vogue's latest cover, upon which she glows like we're not used to seeing.

The Grammy-Winning singer (real name Ella Yelich-O'Connor), 17, dons traditional makeup and a basic plaid scarf, while letting her locks run loose.

When it comes to her usual appearance - in other words, sans Teen Vogue cover shoot prep - she's the first to admit that her style is on the plainer side.

Although she understands there are "expectations in [the] industry about looking a certain way," Lorde tells the mag she prefers her tomboy look.

"I am feminine, but I really love dressing in boys’ clothes too. I guess that’s why I get labeled as ‘the grumpy girl,’ because I don’t play into that.”

Although she famously declares "we'll never be royals" in her breakout song, the teen herself is beginning to adjust to her newfound fame and lifestyle.

Andy Cohen has seen his fair share of Real Housewives catfights, but nothing like what was about to go down between Kenya Moore and Porsha Williams.

Confirming the epic blowup and explaining what really happened during The Real Housewives of Atlanta reunion fight, Cohen is far from pleased.

“There was an altercation that took place between Kenya Moore and Porsha Williams,” he said. “They stood up ... I think I stood up pretty quickly."

"It was such a flash, and it started to escalate ... I was trying to prevent it, and a few other people jumped in too. To me, it came out of nowhere.” 

Eh, it did and yet it didn't. Was Andy not watching this entire season?

Though the Porsha Stewart-Kenya Moore fight will likely (definitely) be ratings gold, Cohen wasn’t amused with the way it all went down at the taping.

“The other women felt Kenya provoked her a bit. I was so shocked and surprised,” Andy said. “I don’t want that to happen. I think it’s gross. It’s wrong."

Teen Mom 2 fans know all about Kailyn Lowry's alcoholic mother, absentee father, pregnancy at 17, and tumultuous relationship with Jo Rivera.

That's a tough enough upbringing - too tough for most of us to handle, no doubt - but it was even more traumatic than we ever imagined, Lowry reveals.

In her new tell-all, Pride Over Pity, Kailyn Lowry confesses that she lost her virginity to her first boyfriend in eighth grade ... outside on the street:

“The concrete sidewalk had no summer warmth. Suddenly, my pants and underwear were pulled down. Our movements and his touch were unromantic."

"When it was over, I ran home, blood trickling down my leg.”

Now a 22-year-old mother of two, the Teen Mom 2 star says that today, she realizes that back then, she was far too immature for such a big milestone.

“I was too young to understand that I wasn’t ready, physically or emotionally, for sex,” she writes. “I believed then that I had to have sex to keep up with my friends.”

The young Lowry’s sexual experiences only grew scarier.

Nikki Ferrell and Juan Pablo Galavis have been through the wringer, but have come out happier - and lasted longer as a couple - than a lot of people expected.

Still, as with any famous couple (especially one in which one half has proven to be a douche at times), there will be critics on the Internets. In droves.

Nikki has chosen to address the haters head on.

Offering some fighting words after a fan on Instagram questioned her happiness and her relationship, Ferrell is not going to sit back and take it anymore.

Despite the fact that he may not have said "I love you" after all, she clearly feels this catch is worth hanging onto - and defending in a public forum.

Apparently, the winner of The Bachelor, often seen as submissive, can be quite fired up when defending her man from the duo's many detractors.

Like Desiree Hartsock often did after her engagement to Chris Siegfied, Nikki posted an inspirational quote as a thinly-veiled message to her critics:

Abby introduced her new team on Dance Moms Season 4 Episode 16, an obvious move after her "old" team won 13 straight events before losing one.

Hey, the best or nothing, right?

That's Abby Lee Miller for you though. It's the 100th episode of the Lifetime hit, a cause for celebration on how far the whole team has come together.

Or not. You wouldn't watch Dance Moms online if there were no tension, right? Of course not. So why not shake things up after a jarring defeat?

New Team Dancers

The new team enters and Abby thinks they look like the original. Not really, but you can cut the tension with a knife as Maddie is told to join the new team.

They will go to Youngstown, Ohio for Energy Dance. The old team will perform "Royal." The new team will perform "The Good Life." Oh it is ON Now.

In the moms' room, Kira is still visibly upset about Tracy's presence, Christy attacks Melissa and so on. These people are flat out crazy. The end.

Last night's The Real Housewives of New York Season 6 Episode 6 shaped up to be a battle royale between Heather Thomson and Aviva Drescher.

Even by their standards.

If you asked any fan to watch The Real Housewives of New York City online and tell you which of the two they felt was more insane, Aviva would win.

Typically, that is.

Heather Thomson and Aviva Drescher

Heather made a strong case for bad taste and general off-her-rocker behavior this week, though and only helped Aviva play the victim card convincingly.

So what happened on The Real Housewives of New York City Season 6 Episode 6? It began with an Aviva and Heather make-up, sans any real making up.

After Heather invited Aviva to her 10-year anniversary party as a peace offering, Aviva said yes, only to have Heather uninvite her later. Via text, natch.

Oof. She just felt that it was "too soon" and not a good place to move forward with things ... "holla!" Now that's a great way to end an uninvited text.

The playoffs wrapped on The Voice Tuesday, cementing the Top 12 as we move on to the live shows next week and ending the coaching phase.

Up until this point, each of the surviving singers have either won two battles and/or enough points from a coach to advance. Now that's all over.

The coaches trimmed their rosters from five to three singers for the live shows, and Tuesday's one-hour episode put Usher's contestants in the hot seat.

Melissa Jimenez makes a bid for the live shows with her take on "Halo."


T.J. Wilkins sang "Tell Me Somethin' Good" by Rufus and Chaka Khan, after Usher taught him a personal favorite technique for imitating instruments.

Melissa Jimenez tackled a stripped-down version of a demanding song in Beyonce's "Halo," soaring on the long notes, but occasionally losing support.

Stevie Jo went with BB King's "The Thrill Is Gone," full of loose blues riffs, raspy moments and falsettos, even if he held some notes for too long.

Bria Kelly picked up a guitar for The Rolling Stones' "Wild Horses," and put forth an emotional performance that while not her best, was strong.

Josh Kaufman dedicated Bruno Mars' "It Will Rain" to his wife, adding a lot of raspy high notes that the original track doesn't have, and earning praise.

Usher then announced that his three picks to advance were ...

Dina Lohan has even more in common with her troubled daughter Lindsay now, pleading guilty to DWI in a courtroom this morning on Long Island.

The momager mess entered pleas of guilty to both aggravated DWI and speeding, and sources say Lohan must do 100 hours of community service.

Dina Lohan Mugshot

She is expected to have her driver's license suspended as a result of the conviction and an interlock device will be installed in her vehicle ASAP.

If she's not clean, the car won't start. Probably for the best.

The Lohan matriarch must attend a mandatory drinking and driving program, a victim impact panel and also pay the necessary fines and fees.

As previously reported, Dina Lohan was arrested in September and a test showed she had a blood alcohol level twice the legal limit in New York State.

She, Lindsay and Michael Lohan now have spots in THG's Celebrity Mug Shots Hall of Fame, which is an exclusive club if ever there were one.

As The Real Housewives of Atlanta fans likely know already, Kenya Moore and Porsha Williams got into a brawl at the show's reunion special taping.

Now, we have our first sneak preview clip of the melee that went down:

In the sneak peek from Bravo, tensions begin to simmer, then boil over.

Just prior to the Porsha Stewart-Kenya Moore fight, she berates her for bringing props - a megaphone and bejeweled scepter - to the taping.

The former Miss USA snaps back: “I will not have you talk over me!”

Williams then loses her temper and says, "you a slut from the ‘90s!”

“Shut up, you do not have the right to talk,” Moore says, as Williams jumps up and throws her co-star's props to the ground, preparing to strike.

“I’m going to f--k you up!” Porsha yells, getting all up in her face.

Kathryn Dennis, the 21-year-old star of Southern Charm, gave birth to a healthy baby girl two weeks ago by her 50-year-old co-star Thomas Ravenel.

The reason we're talking about this? Not the age gap, but the fact that she was seen having a pregnancy scare on the show ... and it came up negative.

Reality TV at its finest, ladies and gentlemen!

Southern Charm Stars

In fact, the very day the pregnancy-scare episode aired on Bravo, Dennis gave birth, which will surely make for an interesting episode next season.

The hookup between Dennis and Ravenel was one of the big storylines on the reality show, yet pregnancy tests showed Kathryn was NOT pregnant.

Was this a lie engineered by the stars, or the producers?

Not exactly on either front. According to reports ...
