The Challenge Final Reckonings Cara Maria Is No Lovesick Loser I Am the One Playing Kyle

The Challenge Final Reckonings Cara Maria Is No Lovesick Loser I Am the One Playing Kyle

After winning MTV’s The Challenge: Vendettas earlier this year, Cara Maria Sorbello is back in action for her 12th season, Final Reckoning. As she vies for the $1 million prize alongside rival and partner Marie Roda, she’s blogging about it exclusively on PEOPLE! Follow Cara Maria on Twitter at @CaraMariaMTV.

I know why you’re here — so let’s get right to it.

Brad, Britni and last week’s cliffhanger

We finally get to see the phone call between Brad and Brit. Brad opens up about Paulie’s accusations of infidelity. Brit vehemently denies any wrongdoing but also fails to mention how Paulie had announced in the Redemption House kitchen his plan to lie to Brad. Brad says he believes his girl but doesn’t sound convinced. The phone call doesn’t seem to do much to settle Brad’s mental state as he keeps seeking reassurance from his friends. Kyle, not one to go an episode without bringing up his man crush Paulie, seizes the opportunity to keep the witch hunt alive in case Paulie returns to the main house.

CT’s crazy wall

Like a true veteran champ, CT takes advantage of the vacation time given to him at Redemption House. His body may be at rest but his mind never stops. He develops an alliance/power team connection web to the likes of which I have only seen on serious detective shows. With this power board, CT hopes to work out how votes will go as the game unfolds.

The Hen House

Joss, Kyle, Nelson are frequent visitors in the girls’ room. They get in and get out nightly if you catch my drift. At this point in The Challenge, I am still in the dark about Kyle and Faith. He doesn’t interact with her much in the house, so aside from the kiss, I am clueless.

Cue Never Have I Ever, which is one of the games we play in the Challenge house to sort out the tea on each other. Shane puts the Challenge house sex-capades on blast when he asks who has had sex since being in this house — and Faith admits she has had sex with Kyle.

From downstairs I hear screaming and assume some juicy info has leaked. When I find out what happened, I am feeling hurt. Everyone’s single and can do what they want (Kyle recently did an interview where he admitted he was, in fact, NOT single coming into the house, but his girlfriend allowed him to hook up with anyone except me because she knew

Morgana King The Godfather Star and Jazz Singer Dies At 87

Morgana King The Godfather Star and Jazz Singer Dies At 87

Morgana King, who is best known for her role as Marlon Brando’s wife in The Godfather, has died.

News of King’s passing broke Tuesday but the actress died on March 22 in Palm Springs, California, at the age of 87 according to the Washington Post.

The star had non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma, a type of cancer, the Riverside Country coroner’s office told the Washington Post. 

In addition to her appearances in the famed film and a number of other movies, King was a jazz singer.

She performed in a variety of nightclubs for over 50 years and recorded a little over 20 albums with her biggest hit being single “A Taste of Honey” in 1964, according to the Hollywood Reporter.

Although her music career didn’t bring her mainstream success, King pursued it out of passion.

“I am a rebel. I am not a commercial artist,” King told the Bergen Record in 1988, as reported by the Post.

“If I don’t believe in something, I won’t do it. I don’t believe in superstardom, publicity stunts and plugging records…,” King explained to the news outlet. “The only thing I believe in is music. I won’t forfeit anything for that.”

King was admired by all of the greats including Frank Sinatra, Duke Ellington, Dinah Washington, Eileen Farrell, and even Billie Holiday.

King performed Holiday’s “Body and Soul,” one night in the famed singer’s dressing room, immediately winning Holiday over, according to Jazz Times.

“You better all take care of this baby, ’cause that’s my child,” Holiday said in reference to King, the Jazz Times reported.

King married twice, marrying trumpet player Tony Fruscella when she was only 17 years old. The couple divorced after nine years together, according to the Los Angeles Times. Together they shared one daughter Grayson Simental, who died in 2008.

King then married trombonist Willie Dennis in 1961. He died in 1965.

Taylor Swift Fights Back Tears at Her Concert on the Anniversary of Sexual Assault Trial Verdict

Taylor Swift Fights Back Tears at Her Concert on the Anniversary of Sexual Assault Trial Verdict

For Taylor Swift, August 14 will always be a bittersweet day.

While on stage in Tampa Tuesday as a part of her Reputation tour, Swift, 28 nearly broke down in tears as she opened up about her 2017 groping trial.

“A year ago I was not playing in a stadium in Tampa, I was in a courtroom in Denver, Colorado,” Swift bravely began. “This is the day the jury sided in my favor and said that they believed me.”

“I guess I just think about all the people that weren’t believed and the people who haven’t been believed, and the people who are afraid to speak up because they think they won’t be believed,” Swift continued.

“I just wanted to say I’m sorry to anyone who ever wasn’t believed because I don’t know what turn my life would have taken if somebody didn’t believe me when I said something had happened to me.”

“So I just wanted to say we have so much further to go, and I’m so grateful to you guys for being there for me for what was really a horrible part of my life,” Swift said as fans cheered loudly from the audience.

“I wanted to thank you for just kind of… I mean I know when I meet you guys at meet-and-greets and after the shows, you guys tell me about the hard times that you’ve gone through in your lives and I really appreciate you trusting me with that information.

“And you know you guys have seen me go through so many ups and downs in my life just due to the public nature of the way my life is, and I just wanted to say that I’m so happy to see you and to have you and know you through the ups and the downs in my life.

“Sorry I just haven’t really talked about it, and so I’m just not composed at all,” Swift added before continuing with her set.

After her impassioned speech, many in the audience held up $1 bills, the symbolic amount she was awarded following her case against former radio host David Mueller.

In August last year, after a six-day civil trial court, a jury in a Denver courtroom ruled that Mueller assaulted and battered when he grabbed Swift’s backside at a meet-and-greet photo session at the Pepsi Center in June 2013.

Mueller initially sued Swift after the incident saying he
