According to our production sources ... Tarek's eruption went down on the set of the popular HGTV series last Wednesday, after he apparently didn't like the way she signaled to him that she and the crew were ready to begin shooting.

We're told Tarek immediately lost his cool and went on a verbal tirade directed toward Christina ... which allegedly included him comparing her to his fiancee, Heather Rae Young, and saying Heather is hotter and richer than Christina.

We're told he also yelled "Look at me, look at me, look at me. It’s called winning" and capped off his rant by screaming at her ... "The world knows you're crazy!"

According to our sources ... this isn't the first time Tarek went on a tirade against Christina on set. We're told after the latest incident, production stopped filming them together for the rest of the day ... and simply shot their scenes separately.

A source close to Tarek tells us his anger toward Christina stems from her recent admission she smoked toad venom -- before meeting her new boyfriend -- and his main concern is for the safety of their two children. At the end of the day, both Tarek and Christina are show execs, and our source says there's going to be tension from time to time, this was one of those incidents.

We reached out to reps for Tarek, Christina and HGTV ... so far, no word back.

As you may know ... Christina's made headlines as of late for following up her divorce from Ant Anstead by revealing she's in a new relationship with Joshua Hall -- something that came about after she says she smoked toad venom.

El Moussa and Haack were married from 2009 to 2018 and have 2 kids together ... plus one very tense house-flipping reality show.

RELATED: ‘The Bachelorette’: What Happened to Greg Grippo and Katie Thurston? New Reality Steve Spoilers Are Overwhelming

There are seven contestants left as The Bachelorette Season 17 Week 7 approaches. In the previous episode, Katie sent multiple men home during the elimination ceremony, including Aaron Clancy, Hunter Montgomery, Tre Cooper, and James Bonsall. She also eliminated fan-favorite Connor Brennan after the day portion of their one-on-one date.

Now, things are getting real with Hometowns around the corner. The suitors remaining are Andrew Spencer, Blake Moynes, Brendan Scanzano, Greg Grippo, Justin Glaze, Michael Allio, and Mike Planeta. So who goes home this week? We’ll just have to wait and see. But The Bachelorette previews suggest contestants who haven’t received a one-on-one date might be in danger.

When Reality Steve dropped Katie’s final four spoilers ahead of The Bachelorette Season 17 premiere, the blogger claimed Andrew S., Blake, Greg, and Blake would make it through to Hometowns. Also, Reality Steve wasn’t certain about the details of Michael A.’s exit. However, he claimed the contestant made it through to the episode before Hometowns. But those spoilers have since been updated.

On July 19, Reality Steve shared he made the wrong assumption about Katie’s top four on The Bachelorette. The blogger claimed Michael A. will make it to week 8 alongside Blake, Justin, and Greg. So Katie allegedly sent Andrew S. home in The Bachelorette Season 17 Week 7. He also said Andrew S. will come back and say goodbye to Katie after the rose ceremony.

Meanwhile, Reality Steve claimed that Michael A. will eliminate himself before Hometowns, and the contestant will appear at the “Men Tell All” special next week.

“Basically, I had Andrew and Michael A. flip flopped. Andrew finished 5th with Michael finishing 4th,” Reality Steve wrote. “[Michael A.] finishes 4th, BUT, his family doesn’t meet Katie. At the beginning of next weeks episode, we’ll see Michael self eliminate because of his son, and Katie never meets his family.”

For now, Bachelorette fans will have to wait and see who wins Katie’s heart in her finale. But despite Reality Steve’s final four correction, it seems the spoilers about the winner still remain unchanged at this point.

Previously, the blogger claimed Blake will win Katie’s final rose in The Bachelorette finale. The couple is also allegedly engaged now. 

As always, Bachelor Nation fans will just have to watch the story unfold in The Bachelorette Season 17. But whatever happens next, we need to prepare for some twists and turns. When speaking on The Viall Files podcast, Katie confirmed her season finished filming a week early, noting that her ending is “not traditional at all.” 

“The end gets crazy,” Katie said. “It’s not traditional at all, and I’m like, ‘What the f— is happening?’ That’s all I’ll say. But it gets crazy.”

The Bachelorette Season 17 airs Monday nights on ABC.

‘The Bachelorette’ Recap: Katie Thurston Picks Her Final 4 Ahead of Hometowns, Offers Andrew S. a Chance to Return

Us Weekly 20 July, 2021 - 04:00am

Katie confessed that she did not know who would get roses as the week began, but she was confident in her relationship with Greg, who received his second one-on-one date. She hoped he could be patient and see that the process would be worth it in the end. He affirmed her feelings by telling her he was falling in love with her, which gave her clarity. Katie offered Greg a rose, confiding in the cameras that she was falling in love with him too. She could even picture them married with kids.

After learning that he was set to go on another group date, Brendan questioned why he was still around, so he went to Katie’s hotel room to ask her. She appreciated that he went out of his way to make her feel special and that he was bold, but she acknowledged that they could not make up for lost time. So, Katie sent Brendan home on the spot.

The group date went on as planned, with Justin, Blake Moynes, Andrew S. and Michael A. Blake was upfront with Katie, telling her he was not in love with her yet but felt like it was inevitable. However, she struggled to embrace her feelings for him since he arrived late and their relationship was not as developed as others. For example, Katie knew she could be herself with Justin, and their chemistry felt natural.

Michael A., for his part, was apprehensive heading into hometowns, but Katie assured him that love was the only thing that mattered and everything else they could figure out later. She also reiterated that his son, James, weighed heavily into her decisions about their relationship. With Andrew, she discussed supporting his dreams of continuing to play football, and he told her he was falling for her. She ultimately gave the group date rose to Michael.

Katie then went on a one-on-one date with Mike P., during which they strengthened their bond. However, she cut the outing short, explaining that she wanted more time with him but knew her other relationships were stronger. So, she sent Mike home.

At the rose ceremony, Katie eliminated Andrew, handing out her remaining roses to Justin and Blake. She told Andrew she couldn’t give him what he deserved because her other connections were too solidified at that point, but she wasn’t fully confident in her decision.

Andrew visited Katie in her room the following day so they could end things on a lighter note. As he was leaving, he gave her a letter that read, “If you change your mind, I’ll be waiting.” Katie chased Andrew through the hotel to give him one last hug and offer him a chance to stay, but he turned her down because he didn’t want to go through her not choosing him again.

The Bachelorette airs on ABC Mondays at 8 p.m. ET.

‘The Bachelorette’s’ Katie Thurston on Her Decision to Open Up About Her Sexual Assault Experience

Variety 20 July, 2021 - 04:00am

By Haley Bosselman

Katie Thurston is just as ready for “The Bachelorette” finale as Bachelor Nation.

“Since the show ended, I kind of stayed home, under a rock a little bit,” Thurston tells Variety. “I do look forward to the finale airing so that I can move forward with my life and not have to hold back on that.”

The seventeenth Bachelorette first captured audiences attention when she presented Matt James, “The Bachelor” on Season 25, with her vibrator. Over the course of James’ season and now her own, Thurston has stood out with her self-assured composure and kind nature.

She also has proven to never shy away from speaking her mind, but it still came as a surprise when Thurston opened up about her sexual assault experience during a group date on Episode 3. While discussing honesty and accountability, she described being “involved in a situation where there wasn’t consent” that left her with “a very unhealthy relationship with sex.”

“I just want you guys to know I’ve come a long way from who I was 10 years ago and how important consent is,” Thurston told the men. Looking back on the episode, she says that the conversation came up organically.

“I do think it surprised producers,” she says, “because they did not know and those are the things they want to know going into this.”

“I just felt so supported and comforted by these men and they were so open with sharing their stories that I felt that I owed it, not only to them, but to myself to just kind of start those conversations that are so important, not only for us, but Bachelor Nation, as they watch this,” she continues.

Thurston is also among Bachelor alumni who spoke up about their concerns with former host Chris Harrison. In June, Variety reported she refused to star in the current season if he was to be the host. She sees her actions as just platforming what changes Bachelor Nation alumni want to see.

“What I loved is that the show has been very supportive of those changes that need to be made, and so to have Tayshia [Adams] and Kaitlyn [Bristowe] there to support me, it was a better outcome than I could have expected,” Thurston says.

“I actually loved this format,” she adds. “I don’t know how it’s going to work going forward, but to be able to have previous bachelorettes helping me, I don’t think anyone else could offer me the support and guidance like they could.”

ABC tapped Adams and Bristowe to serve as temporary co-hosts following Harrison’s full departure from the franchise. It’s likely the permanent new host won’t be named until the next season of “The Bachelor,” which starts production in September and will air in January 2022. As of June, there was a possibility the pair could return for “The Bachelorette” Season 18,” which premieres Oct. 19.

“I would be ecstatic and absolutely blessed to have the opportunity to help on Michelle’s season,” Adams says. “I have not been given that information yet, but hopefully it continues on.”

“We bring a whole new perspective to the show where we are two people who have gone through this before, Bristowe adds. “We’re able to have conversations that a normal, traditional host wouldn’t be able to have, able to make Katie or whoever the Bachelorette is a little more comfortable.”

Bachelor Nation will have to wait until Aug. 9 to know Thurston’s fate when it comes to finding love on her season. In the meantime, though, she acknowledges just how emotionally taxing the show’s dating process is.

“Everyone’s like, ‘Did you have fun?’ And I just look at them and want to scream — because it’s very hard,” she says. “You’re forming very strong relationships and you’re breaking people’s hearts and you’re trying to navigate this thing in such a short time and ‘fun’ is not the first word I would use to describe my experience.”

Okay, So This Is Where Michelle Young's 'Bachelorette' Season Will Begin Filming Next Week

Yahoo Lifestyle 20 July, 2021 - 04:00am

“They are staying at the Marquette Hotel in Minneapolis. If you go on their site, they are currently booked out from August 5-29 and I’ve been told it’s for ‘Bachelorette.’ So maybe this season we will see more public dates since they are staying in a major city. Kinda like anytime this show goes to a U.S. city, we usually always see dates happen. However, I don’t think that’s the last place they’ll be. I do think overnights and final rose ceremony will be in a different location based on the fact I’m hearing filming ends almost two weeks into September.”

Reality Steve also reports that home town dates are back (meaning they'll be traveling to the guys' actual hometowns), which, yay! Truly can't wait for Michelle's season to air after Bachelor in Paradise this fall.

The countdown to the official premiere date is on.

Katie’s season already has a premiere date, but here’s where Michelle’s stands. 👀

It’s a full blown “meltdown” which lasts “for hours.”

Time to pencil Katie Thurston into my summer TV schedule!

I really, really didn’t see this one coming!

Right this way for aaaall the drama and spoilers.

Wait until you hear what Hunter got. 👀

10/10 would bet he’s going far.

I hope he goes far!!! 🤞

About those alarming “Greg is lying about being an actor” rumors….

He’s still in the competition, bless!

The film and TV event will consist of six love stories, each scripted by a different writer.

Here's everything we know about the upcoming season so far.

The 23-year-old athlete said she's "so proud" of the historic cover.

The self-proclaimed hottie tells Yahoo Life that she "manifested" being on the magazine's cover.
