Liz Gillies Says Ariana Grande Wants a Victorious Reunion — But Does Victoria Justice?

Liz Gillies, star of the CW’s Dynasty reboot, has her eye on another fan-favorite reprise that could one day reunite her with Ariana Grande.

It’s been over seven years since Victorious last aired on Nickelodeon, and if it were up to Gillies the cast would return to Hollywood Arts.

“I’m so down. I keep speaking out of turn and saying I’m ready to do one tomorrow,” the actress, 24, recently told PEOPLE Now’s Jeremy Parsons and Andrea Boehlke.

Gillies played Jade West on Dan Schneider’s popular Nick show for 57 episodes from 2010 – 2013 alongside costars Grande and Victoria Justice.

“I think everybody’s down. I think we unanimously had a Twitter thing where somebody, I think it might’ve even been Ari, she’s like ‘I want to do this reunion, who else is down?’” Gillies said, adding, “And we got even extended cast members to agree to it.”

In May, Grande, who played Cat Valentine, practically started a Victorious revolution when she tweeted that the show deserved a proper series finale.

Back in March 2016, on the six-year anniversary of the show, Schneider teased fans, tweeting Victorious still had “#Possibilities.”

Grande was previously reunited with Daniella Monet (Trina Vega), Leon Thomas III (Andre Harris), Avan Jogia (Beck Oliver), and Matt Bennett (Robbie Shaprio) at her 23rd birthday party in June 2016.

Dynasty airs Wednesdays at 9/8c on The CW.

Stephen Fishbach’s Survivor Blog: Why Survivor Is a ‘Game of Emotions’ More Than ‘a Game of Strategy’

“People do not forget how you make them feel.” – Sabrina Thompson, Survivor: One World 

At last, this season is starting to heat up. This episode, the Survivor swap forces players to scramble for safety, and the show’s new single-serving advantages start to pay strategic dividends.

Have you ever noticed that every single Survivor swap shares one moment in common?

Every swap, across every season, there’s always that moment when Jeff Probst asks the odd person out how he or she is feeling. And they always respond with the same pre-fabricated line.

“Well Jeff, I’m a little nervous looking at these numbers, but I’ve got a great feeling about this new tribe!”

And we are left to wring our hands for this poor solo player, journeying off to a new beach against impossible odds.

Actually, though, the odd person out is often the luckiest one of all. On a three tribe swap, it’s fantastic to be a solo operator. Both of the other two sides will desperately want your vote.

On the new Blue tribe, Healers Joe and Desi are facing off against Heroes Alan and Ashley. That leaves Hustler Devon in the middle – and everybody wants to align with him.

Joe tries to use fear to swing his vote. “ came to us, it was like, why don’t we take Dev out,” he threatens Devon.

But Devon doesn’t buy it. He’s much more inclined to trust Ashley. After all, Devon is a surfer, and Ashley loves the beach. How much more do you need? Devon and Ashley hug to cement their new alliance.

I know that Survivor champ Jeremy Collins was cringing watching that moment on television. The Collins doctrine states that you should never hug and never shake hands. Never make any grand physical gesture that alerts everybody watching that a new alliance has been struck.

It could have been a sweet blindside, but Desi sees them hug; she tells Joe; Joe decides to make himself a target; and suddenly camp is in chaos.

At Tribal Council, Devon’s vote is made irrelevant, as Devon unwraps the “advantage” bequeathed to him from Jessica on the Red Tribe.

“That is not an advantage,” Devon says, doing his best Keanu.

Giving the (dis)advantage to Devon is a misstep from Jessica. She says in a confessional that her goal is to help the Healers. It would make better sense for her to invalidate one of the Heroes’ votes (Alan or Ashley), thus pressuring Devon to join the Healers in a majority. Is Devon really going to draw rocks for people he just met?

Instead, by invalidating Devon’s vote, Jessica ensures a standoff.

But Joe has an idol, and he correctly reads Ashley’s face and saves himself – sending Alan home.

Single Serving Advantages

The vote cancel is now the second single-serving advantage of the season – an advantage that can only be used at one tribal council, and has to get passed to a member of the losing tribe.

I’m really digging this new advantage structure. One of the problems with advantages has been that that they incentivize players to hold onto them forever. As I can testify, it is very difficult to know when’s the perfect time to play it. Moreover, the big advantages rarely have a significant impact on the game.

By creating single-use advantages, the producers force the players to play them, immediately. Even if nothing happens – as with Ryan and Chrissy’s super idol – they offer opportunities for players across the tribes to communicate, sabotage each other, and develop relationships.

By creating a series of multiple one-offs, the producers are changing what an advantage means. The advantages become strategic tools, not epochal game-changing Death Stars. By shifting both players’ and viewers’ expectations for what an advantage can accomplish, the producers leave a lot of room for experimentation.

I think this is a very fun development, and I hope it goes further.

Red Tribe                 

Jessica’s advantage also causes problems for her on her new tribe.

Jessica decides to tell Cole and Dr. Mike about this secret she’s discovered in her bag of chips. She thinks she’s building the bonds in her small group, but she seems to have forgotten that literally three days ago, Cole was running his mouth all over the Island about Joe’s immunity idol.

So once again, Jessica is betrayed by Cole and his promiscuous lips.

“Jessica’s secret is kind of like my olive branch to give to people,” Cole says. “I can extend this information and maybe they’ll see me as more trustworthy because I’ve chosen to tell them something that I had no obligation to in the first place.”

This could be a smart strategy. Information is one of the few ways you can actually prove trust on Survivor. Using someone else’s information to your advantage might be a savvy way to build allies without needing an advantage of your own.

But as with any strategy, so much relies on execution. I thought Cole was smart when he told Ben. But by the time he told Lauren, so that everybody on the tribe knew, it was clear he had overextended himself.

In a classic example of Survivor telephone, Lauren checks in with Dr. Mike; Dr. Mike asks Jessica; and Jessica blames Cole.

Cole ends up looking shady. Worst of all, when Devon inevitably finds out who robbed him of his vote, he will likely hold a grudge. Jessica’s well-intentioned attempt to share ends up harming her game.

Yellow Tribe

The Fishy this week goes to Ryan for finessing his conversation with Chrissy. In an episode where everybody else is mismanaging information, Ryan leverages his perfectly.

Ryan actually could have been in a dangerous position at the swap. The new yellow tribe consists of two Hustlers (Ryan and Ali), two Heroes (Chrissy and JP), and a Healer (Roark). As mentioned, the swing vote is typically not the target, so Roark is likely safe. Ryan could be in trouble merely for his archetype. The small nerdy guy might be considered a strategic threat without being a physical asset.

So it’s crucial that Ryan win some allies. Fortunately, he lucked out to have swapped to Chrissy’s tribe. He approaches Chrissy in the forest, and after establishing the fact that they’re both from New Jersey, he tells her that he was the one who gave her the super idol at the first tribal council.

Chrissy asks him why he chose her.

“I just had a good vibe, and I wanted really to play the game with you,” he says. “It was an easy decision.” Then he gives her a hug.

Who knows if Ryan is telling the truth. Maybe he gave the idol to Chrissy because she seemed weak in the first challenge. Maybe he thought he could save an older player on a young and strong tribe. Maybe he really did just feel a good connection with her.

The important thing is that Ryan makes Chrissy feel safe.

“He made me feel so loved,” Chrissy says. “I feel very, very secure.” The score of soaring woodwinds let you know this is a moment that matters. Survivor is a game of strategy. But even more than that, it’s a game of emotions. How you make someone feel is probably the largest determinant in whether they ally with you, especially on a new player season.

I think Ryan suffers because many people compare him to Cochran. A skinny nerd in distinctive red apparel – what are we supposed to think?

Ryan doesn’t have Cochran’s skills as a storyteller. His awkward metaphors about birthday parties and tricycles don’t come close to, say, this vanilla-flavored gem.

But Ryan is like Cochran in how skilled he is at making other people feel good about themselves. On the Hustler tribe, whenever he spoke to Devon, Ryan mentioned what a great strategic team they were; alone in confessionals, he talked about how he wanted to use Devon as a tool. Ryan made Devon feel like a valued strategic partner.

Like his tribemate Ali, Ryan is expert at making people feel good. If the two work together, they could go very far.

WATCH: Million Dollar Listing’s Josh Flagg Hilariously Demands Pricey Pizza as His Anesthetic Wears Off After Surgery

Josh Flagg would be the first to admit that he was born with a silver spoon in his mouth which he uses to indulge his expensive taste.

So there was only wanted one thing he wanted he woke up from back surgery on Wednesday – Spago Beverly Hills’ signature dish.

The Million Dollar Listing: Los Angeles star, 32, shared a hilarious Instagram video of himself as his anesthetic wore off following his surgery.

“Hey Josh, open your eyes. It’s Dr. Kim. How’re you doing?” his doctor asks him as he slowly wakes up.

“I want a pizza from Spago,” he said, slightly slurring his words, but making it clear he wanted food from the sleek Beverly Hills bistro.

“You want a pizza from Spago?” Dr. Kim asked. “What kind of pizza?”

Flagg mumbled slightly, but clarified his craving, saying, “Smoked salmon, caviar… so light it up.”

Spago Beverly Hills is renowned for it’s famous smoked salmon pizza with caviar — it was even featured on Frank Pinello’s The Pizza Show alongside celebrity chef Wolfgang Puck, who opened the restaurant in 1982.

When Flagg’s doctor attempted to see if he wanted to say anything else, he simply repeated, “I want a smoked salmon pizza with caviar from Spago,” as well as insisting that it be “kosher.”

In the caption of the video, Flagg wrote about the experience, saying, “Wow if this video didn’t sum me up to a tee then I don’t know what would! I just don’t know when I became kosher. #backsurgeryrecovery #anesthesia.”

Siggy Flicker Lashes Out at New RHONJ Star Margaret Josephs: ‘She and Her Pigtails Can Go F— Themselves’

Siggy Flicker may have brought Margaret Josephs into her friend circle on The Real Housewives of New Jersey, but if it were up to her on Wednesday night’s episode, she would have kicked Josephs out too.

Bravo’s newest Housewife was enemy no. 1 for Flicker on season 8’s all-new episode, after she threw a surprise memorial ceremony for Teresa Giudice‘s deceased mother during their cast trip to Boca Raton, Florida, without giving Flicker — who had unknowingly skipped the beach day outing thinking it was just a yoga trip — a heads-up first.

“I want to take and pull on those pigtails until they come out of her head,” Flicker told Giudice of Josephs, the self-described “Powerhouse in Pigtails.”

“I can’t stand the bitch,” said Flicker. “Every time I open up my mouth, she’s giving me another dagger. I hate the f—— bitch. …. Margaret and her pigtails can go f— themselves.”

As if that weren’t enough, Josephs had made fun of Flicker for getting upset with Giudice and Melissa Gorga after the two had a playful cake fight with the $1,000 custom birthday cake Flicker had bought for Gorga. “Why cry about a cake?” Josephs, 50, had wondered. “Siggy, better known as ‘Soggy Flicker’ with all the crying.”

“I’m angry and livid over Margaret,” Flicker, 50, said Wednesday. “She’s calling me ‘Soggy Flicker?’ … What’s her excuse for being mean?”

So one might imagine that Flicker wasn’t exactly gung-ho to attend Josephs’ big launch party for her new fashion collection. “I feel like you slighted me,” Flicker told Josephs when she called with the invitation. “You didn’t really care about your friend Siggy who introduced you to everybody else. And then on top of that, you calling me ‘Soggy Flicker,’ I didn’t appreciate that. Have a great life, goodbye!”

Josephs didn’t exactly seem upset about Flicker’s words. “She was unhinged,” Josephs told her family, before admitting, “I’m always the bigger person. I can move past anything.”

She got her chance to patch things up with Flicker when the two met for a bite to eat at the local diner. Though … Josephs wasn’t exactly looking to apologize.

First, she explained away the lack of invite by saying that she didn’t know Flicker wasn’t coming to the beach until they were already there (“it wasn’t intentional”) and that it wasn’t a “big deal” that Flicker had introduced her to the group (“Why is it on me to call you instead of everybody else? This isn’t high school”).

Then, Josephs stood by her ‘Soggy Flicker’ line — adding that it was “f—— hilarious” and that the nickname was like ‘A Joan Rivers line.’ ”

“My timing is f—— perfect. I’m like Joan Rivers. I’m sorry, it’s funny,” Josephs said, quickly debating Flicker’s claim that she was more like the late comedian. “I’ve been at a million parties at her house before she passed away. … I’m just saying, you’re no Joan Rivers.”

Finally, Josephs went after Flicker for calling her negative names to Giudice. “That’s not very women-empowering,” Josephs said. “You talk the talk but you don’t walk the walk. … I’m shocked at your hypocrisy. You have to be able to laugh at yourself as much as you laugh at everyone else.”

Flicker, for her part, wasn’t backing down either. “When I’m angry, I’m not trying to empower you, I’m trying to destroy you,” the author and relationship expert said. “You should be on medication. You have no heart.”

But after a few more back and forths with Josephs — and an admission that she’s getting a hormone replacement procedure that consists of “pellets on ass” — Flicker finally broke down in tears.

“You are a wise ass,” she told Josephs. “I don’t think you realize how sensitive I really am. I just felt like, ‘Margaret really doesn’t know me.’ And you know what, I don’t really know you.”

Her vulnerability got to Josephs. “Don’t cry. Now I am going to feel bad. Now I’m not going to say something snotty. Don’t get me crying myself. I’m a f—— wise ass but I would never want to hurt your feelings,” Josephs told Flicker. “Yeah, I had assumptions about you and you had assumptions about me. And you know, we’re dating. But my intention was never ever to make you cry. My intention is to f—— be funny. And I am funny, I don’t care. I’m very sorry that I hurt you. And that is a true apology. I don’t want to ever take a girl down ever.”

In the end, both agreed to try and move forward, Josephs admitting that she’s always going to say snide comments (“That’s just my thing, I’m f—— obnoxious, I can’t help it”) and Flicker agreeing to toughen up a bit (“I’m not going to get as offended”).

Still, Flicker will be keeping Josephs at a distance. “I’m not going to let her so close, I’m going to keep her at arms length,” she confessed to viewers. “Baby steps.”

Christina El Moussa Splits from Doug Spedding and Says ‘There Is No Shame in Beginning Again’ as He Enters Rehab

Christina El Moussa and her boyfriend, Doug Spedding, have split.

A source confirms to PEOPLE that the 34-year-old Flip or Flop star and 55-year-old Spedding have called it quits on their relationship.

“Christina supports Doug’s decision to seek treatment and remains in contact to support his recovery,” says a source.

On Wednesday, In Touch first reported that Christina had ended her romance with the businessman, who has entered an in-patient rehabilitation center for addiction issues.

Christina took to Instagram Tuesday to share an inspirational quote: “There is no shame in beginning again, for you get a chance to build bigger + better than before.” She added the caption, “People can impact you in different ways … the important ones enter your life for a reason a season or a lifetime 💙 #keepthefaith.”

In July, PEOPLE reported that the pair, who were linked before her marriage to ex Tarek El Moussa, had reconnected.

“Their children are only a few years apart, so they’ve been doing a lot of activities with the kids: ice skating, swimming, BBQs, just low-key stuff at home,” a source said about Christina and Spedding, who is a father of six. “Christina respects that he is a great father; he’s always present when it comes to his children and isn’t distracted by his phone and social media. They’re just taking it slow and enjoying their time together.”

Speaking with E!’s Daily Pop in September, Christina said of her relationship with Spedding: “Doug and I are doing great. He actually has six kids. He has two twins that are girls — they’re 10. Taylor loves them. They got along really well.”

“We’re both kind of low-key, and we like to barbecue, swim at my house, go out on the boat, watch hockey games,” she added.

Last May, Christina and Tarek quietly separated following a bizarre incident involving a gun and revealed in an exclusive statement to PEOPLE in December that they had split.

She submitted her divorce documents in August citing “irreconcilable differences” as the reason for the breakup from Tarek, 35, and requested joint legal and physical custody of their two children: daughter Taylor, 6, and son Brayden, 2.

While both Christina and Tarek have been linked to other people since their separation, the duo has a great working relationship and continues to film Flip or Flop together.

Bethenny Frankel Slams Hollywood Insiders for Pretending ‘They Didn’t Know’ About ‘Beast’ Harvey Weinstein

 

Bethenny Frankel is calling out Hollywood insiders who knew about Harvey Weinstein‘s alleged sexual misconduct allegations, which are continuing to be brought to light.

The Real Housewives of New York City star took to Twitter late Tuesday evening to address the ongoing sexual harassment scandal — which the New York Times first detailed in an Oct. 5 report — and called Weinstein a “beast.”

“Harvey is & was a beast. If I had $1 for every person in ‘the biz’ that pretends they didn’t know, I’d be richer than H before the fall,” tweeted Frankel, 46.

The Skinnygirl founder also alleged that there are “20 names right behind him” in the entertainment industry who are “shuddering under the covers.”

“& they’re the famous ones. What about the regular offenders?” she asked her followers.

Weinstein, 65, was fired from his powerhouse film studio, The Weinstein Company, after eight women — including actress Ashley Judd — spoke out against him in the New York Times report, accusing him of sexual harassment and inappropriate behavior. The paper also reported that Weinstein reached private settlements with eight women, including actress Rose McGowan, who later accused him of rape on Twitter. Gwyneth Paltrow, Angelina Jolie and several other women also added their own accounts of alleged mistreatment, and more than two dozen women have now come forward.

Following the initial Times report about the allegations, Weinstein said in a statement that he was working with therapists and planned to “deal with this issue head-on.” He has also left Los Angeles and checked into a luxury resort in Arizona.

A spokesperson for Weinstein previously told PEOPLE in a statement that “any allegations of non-consensual sex are unequivocally denied by Mr. Weinstein.”

Since news of the scandal broke, his now estranged wife, Marchesa designer Georgina Chapman, announced that she was leaving him. “My heart breaks for all the women who have suffered tremendous pain because of these unforgivable actions. I have chosen to leave my husband. Caring for my young children is my first priority and I ask the media for privacy at this time,” Chapman, who shares two children ages 7 and 4 with Weinstein, said in a statement to PEOPLE.

On Tuesday, Weinstein’s younger brother and longtime co-chair of The Weinstein Co., Bob Weinstein, was accused of sexually harassing a female TV showrunner. Amanda Segel told Variety that while executive-producing the Weinstein Co. drama The Mist, Bob “repeatedly made romantic overtures to her and asked her to join him for private dinners.”

Bob’s attorney, Bert Fields, responded to the article in a statement to PEOPLE. “Variety’s story about Bob Weinstein is riddled with false and misleading assertions by Ms. Segel and we have the emails to prove it, but even if you believe what she says it contains not a hint of any inappropriate touching or even any request for such touching,” Fields said. “There is no way in the world that Bob Weinstein is guilty of sexual harassment, and even if you believed what this person asserts there is no way it would amount to that.”
