The April 23 episode of Awkwardwas, strangely enough, all about murder. As newly-dethroned vice principal Val (Desi Lydic) interrogated Sadie (Molly Tarlov) about Ricky Schwartz’ death-by-peanut, Jenna (Ashley Rickards) was busy inadvertently twisting a knife in her relationship with Matty (Beau Mirchoff) — and it was a total bloodbath.
Fearing that communication of any kind would lead to a breakup, Jenna tried to put as much distance between herself and Matty as possible. But Jenna’s little plan backfired when a group date turned into a walk down Memory Lane with Jake (Brett Davern), and that’s when things got really weird…
In a twist I had to see to believe, Tamara (Jillian Rose Reed) actually stepped up as the voice of reason for once, telling Jenna to cut the crap and leave Jake in the past. This led to one of Matty and Jenna’s classic chats, in which they both admitted they have no idea what they’re doing, so they basically just made out until the screen faded to black.
Ah, young love.
Spotlight On Sadie
OK, I’m going to put the sillyness on hold for a minute so we can discuss Sadie. Our girl got real tonight, and I’m not just talking about the brutal honesty she shared with her fellow students. (“You’re welcome.) I’m talking about the series of shockingly human confessions she made throughout the episode, from telling Val and that rando detective that she’s a virgin to telling Matty about her depression and insecurities.
Sadie may have had a few killer one-liners this week, but mostly, I was just really impressed with her real-ness. Molly Tarlov displayed a vulnerability in Sadie that we’ve only seen glimpses of thus far, and as season three awkwardly marches on, I have a feeling we’ll be seeing a lot more.
And I wholeheartedly welcome these moments, especially if they lead to more scenes between Sadie and Matty. Their conversation may have happened over the phone, but as Matty showered Sadie with comforting words, it’s like they might as well have been sitting directly on my heart.
(Of course, if the whole Matty/Sadie thing doesn’t come to fruition, I’d settle for a spin-0ff with Sadie and Consuela.)
HollywoodLifers, what did you think of this week’s Awkward? Are you worried about Jenna and Matty’s future? Did you enjoy Sadie’s softer side as much as I did? Drop a comment with your thoughts on the episode, and as always, Jake’s new season-three hair!
Another one bites the dust on ‘Dancing with The Stars’! Sean and Victor were sadly in the bottom two, while Kellie Pickler and Derek Hough rose to the top. So, who was sent home?
Dancing With the Stars has lost another celebrity! A night filled with amazing performances by both Olly Murs and Will.i.am, ended with another sad elimination. We were so bummed when Sean Lowe and Victor Ortizwere in the bottom two on April 23, and sadly, one did have to go home.
Team Paso Doble Wins The Encore Dance
Team Paso Doble — consisting of Aly Raisman, Andy Dick, Kellie Pickler and Sean, performed the encore dance beating out Team Samba, who went with a disco theme on this week’s show.
Sean — the contestant who the judges told could make a career out of stripping on April 22, was not at the top of the charts. However, Kellie and partier Derek Hough were leading the race.
Olly Murs & Will.i.am Perform
Opening the show was a rocking performance of “Heart Attack” by English pop star Olly, who was extremely excited for the performance Before going on he posted a picture on his Instagram of him with Len Goodman. “Backstage with Len Goodman at #dwts trying to find Bruno!!! Haha,” he wrote.
The show didn’t only get to see Olly tonight, but we also saw a performance by Will.i.am. Singing “That Power,” for the first time on network TV. The crowd seemed to enjoy the song, which features Justin Bieber. Unfortunately, the electronic show and choreographed dance just featured Justin on a back screen instead of making a surprise appearance. (Hey, we can always hope.)
Victor Ortiz Gets Eliminated
It was the final round for professional boxer Victor Ortiz and his partner Lindsay Arnold were eliminated on April 23.
“I don’t take nothing back,” Victor said after the elimination. ”I made great friends It was a heck of an experience. And hopefully these beautiful people will follow me to my next national championship.”
Well, we love his positive attitude.
On the bright side, next week will be LATIN week!
What do YOU think HollywoodLifers? Was the right person sent home? Or do YOU think a different dancer should have been sent packing? Sound off below!
Amanda’s at it again! This time, the former Nickelodeon star is using her Twitter account to lash out at media outlets who claim that she’s smoking pot. Read on for more details!
Amanda Bynes is angry that media outlets have been posting unflattering pictures of her and insinuating that she uses drugs. In a series of bizarre tweets, the actress is demanding that these outlets use different photos and refrain from saying that she smokes pot!
Did Amanda Bynes Smoke Pot In A Bathroom?
In one tweet, Amanda wrote:
“@HuffingtonPost Choose a better photo or remove the story because I don’t smoke in the bathroom. I also don’t smoke pot I smoke tabacco! There are always tons of photos to choose, you pick the worst one! Read my twitter! Please don’t make the same mistake you saw someone else just make! Tweet your contact information if you want to interview me which you seem to be dying to do! Stop writing continuous lies. Post my twit pics! Stop posting old photos!”
Amanda Bynes’ Recent Strange Behavior
According to a report, Amanda was recently kicked out of the W Hotel in NYC last month for walking around naked in the hallways. We told you that she ran out on her hair bill at a NYC salon and she’s been posting strange messages on Twitter ever since.
Plus, Amanda recently admitted to having an eating disorder, shaving her head and saying she doesn’t speak to her parents anymore.
Phew! Miley holds no hard feelings toward Snoop Lion after he publicly revealed that the singer and Liam Hemsworth were no longer together, a source tells HollywoodLife.com exclusively. Read on for all the details!
A source close to the singer tells HollywoodLife.com exclusively, “I don’t think [Miley's] mad at Snoop. He’s cool and they’re friends, so it could be that she’s not ready to come out and say what everyone is thinking. When she wants to address what’s going on, if there’s anything to even address, she’ll do it when she’s ready.”
While Miley’s not mad, it’s hard to deny the fact that Snoop’s interview was very revealing!
Snoop Lion’s Original Statement: Miley Cyrus’ Relationship No Longer Exists
“I can't speak for her, ya know what I'm saying?” Snoop said. “But I know that she has a relationship that no longer exists. I know she's probably in a transformation change with her life, her music [and] her career. She's 20 years old and she's an awesome artist to work with. She knows what she wants in life. I feel like maybe this is a time for her to take charge like I'm taking charge.”
It’s no secret that Miley and Liam have been experiencing some relationship trouble. According to a new report, they called off their wedding.
“Miley and Liam had another argument before the weekend and the engagement ring is off again,” the source said. “They don’t want to get married until they figure out their problems. But Miley is very worried about losing Liam. She is crazy about him.”
It seems like Snoop has good reason to believe that Miley may be single, but is it his place to tell the world?
What do YOU think, HollywoodLifers? Should Miley be mad?
April 23 was the end of the battle rounds, so it was all on the line — especially for Usher, who had one steal left! Who did he use it on?
The pressure was on for all four judges on The Voice, but only Usherhad a steal left — and he had to save it for the right contestant. Meanwhile, Adam Levine, Shakira, Blake Shelton all had extremely difficult decisions to make to secure the teams that would head to the knock out round!
Team Adam Wows All … Again
Wrapping up the battle rounds, all the performers brought their best. At the end, each judge had a full team of eight to bring to the live shows.
Team Shakira brought down the house with a rockin’ performance of Janis Joplin‘s “Piece of My Heart” by Shawna P and Brandon Roush. Shawna’s Janis-like voice won over Shakira, securing a spot for her.
But the most breathtaking performance once again came from Team Adam.
Sarah Simmons already captured my heart with "One Of Us," and she did it again when taking on Lady Antebellum's "Wanted You More." However, she battled Duncan Kamakana who really brought it too, leaving a tough decision for Adam.
Even Blake says: “you’re one of his favorite singers I’ve ever heard in my life.”
And Adam agrees! He chose Sarah, and I couldn’t be more excited.
Usher Finally Uses Last Steal
Cathia and Marie Miranda shook up the stage when singing a Spanish song written by Shakira herself! Talk about a lot of pressure!
However, after the impressive sing-off, Shakira went with Marie, leaving Cathia up for grabs — and that’s exactly what happened! Usher waited at first, the after she said her tearful goodbyes, she stepped off stage and Usher jumped on his button, securing his final steal.
Latina artists may be the only thing Shakira and Usher agree on – he joked that she was “narcissistic” for choosing a song that she wrote for her team, and she fired back!
“You never get into an argument with a Latin woman,” Usher told Shakira!
Put those claws away, you two!
So, HollywoodLifers –do you think Usher chose the right one to use his steal on?

Oh no! Due to poor timing, Kim and Kanye may not have a house to go home to after their baby is born, according to a new report. Read on for all the details!
With the recent sale of Kim Kardashian‘s home, and the possible sale of Kanye West‘s, it appears as though the lovely duo may find themselves homeless in the near future! But how will they care for baby Kimye?
Kim Kardashian & Kanye West HOMELESS?
Everyone is counting down the days until Kim gives birth, but Kim and Kanye may want to stay in the hospital a bit longer after the birth because they might not have anywhere to go when they leave!
According to TMZ, Kim sold her $5 million Beverly Hills home and must be out by Aug. 1. And Kanye recently put his $3.3 million Hollywood Hills home on the market — and he’s already moved out! In other words, Kim and Kanye will soon be homeless — sort of.
The sexy couple purchased a $9 million Bel Air estate in February, but with construction and renovations, they will not be able to move in by the time their baby is born. Baby Kimye will reportedly arrive in June or July.
Thanks to their hefty bank accounts, the couple has been considering renting a house for a cool $50 thousand a month while they wait for renovations to be completed! If that doesn’t work out, they are both considering moving into Kim’s mother’s house. We have a feeling that Kris Jenner would love that, but Kim and Kanye might not be too thrilled with that scenario. (Who would want to move back home with their parents?)
Let’s all say a prayer for Kim and Kanye in their time of need!
HollywoodLifers, do you feel bad about Kim and Kayne’s home issues? Sound off below!
How horrific. Boston bombing suspect, Tamerlan Tsarnaev, allegedly called his wife, Katherine Russell, a slut and abused her on a regular basis, according to a new report. Read on for all the details.
Tamerlan Tsarnaev, 26, reportedly displayed a disturbing pattern of verbal and physical abuse. The Boston bombing suspect allegedly threw into fits of rage against his wife, Katherine Russell. He would reportedly throw things at her often, including pieces of furniture.
Tamerlan Tsarnaev Abuse & Violence Towards Katherine Russell
Close friends of Katherine, 24, revealed to Mail Online that Tamerlan was combative, angry and controlling.
A neighbor of Katherine and Tamerlan’s tells the site that she often heard the couple screaming at each other in the wee hours of the night. “It wasn’t enough to call the police,” Mary Silberman told Reuters. “It didn’t sound like anyone was in physical danger.” But it was certainly enough to keep her awake.
Official statement from the law firm of Deluca and Weizenbaum on behalf of Katherine Russell:
“The injuries and loss of life – to people who came to celebrate a race and a holiday – has caused profound distress and sorrow to Katie and her family. The reports of involvement by her husband and brother-in-law came as an absolute shock to them all. As a mother, a sister, a daughter, a wife, Katie deeply mourns the pain and loss to innocent victims – students, law enforcement, families and our community. In the aftermath of this tragedy, she, her daughter and her family are trying to come to terms with these events. Thank you.”
Tamerlan’s Violent Past
In July 2009, Tamerlan was reportedly arrested for slapping an ex-girlfriend, according to court records. His ex was “crying hysterically” and called 911 to report that she was “beat up by her boyfriend,” Cambridge Police Officer Angela Pereira wrote in the arrest report. Tamerlan told police that his ex “was yelling at him because of another girl (presumably Katherine).” Tsarnaev stated at the time, “Yes, I slapped her.” He said that he struck the left side of her face. Eleven months later, Tamerlan married Katherine after convincing her to convert from Christianity to Islam.
What do YOU think, HollywoodLifers? Do you think Tamerlan abused his wife?

Meanwhile, Selena kicks off her tour “Stars Dance Tour 2013″ on August 14 in Vancouver, Canada.
Why Selena Gomez Went Back To Justin Bieber
According to our sources, the real reason Selena went back to Justin was because “she was lonely.” But will Justin change his ways finally? We certainly hope so. We have a feeling that Selena can help Justin stay out of trouble!
As HollywoodLife.com previously reported, Selena’s friends aren’t too happy about her decision to give Justin a second chance. In fact, they want her to stay away from him!
"Selena's friends are furious that she's giving Justin another chance. They've been trying to warn her that he's no good for her and that she should stay away from him, but she just loves the attention he gives her,” a source revealed to RadarOnline.
Is Selena Making A Mistake?
What do YOU think, HollywoodLifers, is Selena setting herself up for more heartbreak?

"He is a good dad already by taking care of business and pounding out his music in a different country so that when she does have his baby, he can be there every minute,” our source tells us. “He's doing what he's supposed to do right now, and juggling his priorities as best as he can. He and Kim know what time it is — he's going to be there every minute. For the birth, the cord cutting, the ride home — he's going to be there too so much the baby might get sick of him.”

Our source adds, "Once [your] baby is born, Kanye will be on a self-imposed lockdown!"

At 35, Kanye’s proven that he’s mature and ready to take on fatherhood; he’s certainly ready to embrace it. Kanye has already lived the single life for long enough and he’s madly in love with you. A source tells us that Kanye’s also a fan of your pregnant body.
"[Kanye] loves it,” our source insists. “He loves everything about Kim K – pregnant, not pregnant, skinny, big.”
Furthermore, Kanye is so glad that you’re divorced now, and he no longer has to worry about you being stressed about Kris Humphries anymore. He truly cares about your feelings as well as the health of your unborn baby.
Kanye West Has Learned From The Best
Kanye’s best friend Jay-Z has loved being a father, and we’re sure that Kanye’s been positively influenced by him.

We are loving the no-makeup movement of these popular celebrities. They are so brave and confident to show the world their bare faces! Don’t you think so?
Demi Lovato, 20, tweeted on April 3: “Ladies, be brave today.. take off your make-up and stop using those filters!! WE are beautiful!!!” Fellow actors and musicians have followed suit and we’re loving the celebrity trend! Look at the inspiring beauties below and tell us who you think looks best without makeup! (We think they all look amazing!)

Self-esteem is so important at that age — at any age, really! — so we love that these influential stars are putting their fame to good use. Stars take off their makeup too — they really are just like us!

Shakira’s busy life is paying off! ‘The Voice’ coach stepped out in Los Angeles in a sheer top, showing off her super-slim belly only three months after having her first baby!
Shakira gave birth to baby Milan Piqué Mebarak on Jan. 22 — but on April 22, exactly three months later, you’d never have guessed she ever was pregnant!
Shakira Shows Off Flat Belly
BoyfriendGerard Pique is a lucky guy! Shakira, 36, attended the NBC Summer Press Day at Langham Huntington Hotel & Spa in Pasadena, Calif., where she rocked a leopard-print sheer top.
With natural makeup and flowy hair, The Voice coach looked stunning! She paired the top with black skinny jeans and black booties, and the top was just sheer enough so that her super-flat stomach was revealed!
She admitted at the event that losing baby weight wasn’t a big concern for prior generations.
“My dad says that there’s nothing better than a little meat on the bone!” Shakira told Us Weekly. ”He likes my mom a little chubby. So she was never under the pressure to get back to her old weight, and she never did, actually!”
Sadly, Shakira’s not exactly in the same position.
“I have a career, and that’s the only part that’s been a bit stressful, because I knew that I’d have to come back here to do The Voice two months after I delivered a baby,” she said. “I didn’t have my four months [of] maternity [leave] like every woman on Earth has. So I’m not trying to complain, but it’s been a process full of challenges in my life.”
How Shakira Lost Weight After Giving Birth
“Zumba has been pretty great for me even during pregnancy,” she told the mag. “I did it almost until the end!”
Whoa! Shakira also claimed she’s still “a few pounds over” what she’d like to be, but we don’t see those few pounds anywhere!
Shakira On Motherhood: ‘Nobody Told Me It Would Be This Hard’
The Columbian singer-songwriter revealed said that while Milan is a great baby, raising him is definitely harder than she expected:
I didn’t expect babies to need so many diapers! Nobody told me they needed to be changed so often! I mean he’s a great, great baby. He’s an easy one, I think. But nobody told me it would be this hard. It takes a lot of energy from you. But I love it, I’m really enjoying every bit of it. It’s just that it’s not as idyllic as everybody tells you, but also not as horrible as everyone tells you.
However, she also admitted she’s very lucky to have Gerard, 26, to help out:
Thank God the father is very involved. He has been amazing. The baby spends as much time with me as he does with his dad. He’s the kind of dad who’s full hands on. I can’t imagine doing all of this and not having the father do his part of the job. So that’s a huge help to me.
He’s a lucky man for sure! HollywoodLifers, don’t you think Shakira’s post-body baby is amazing?
