But that didn’t stop the 34-year-old influencer from taking a savage swipe upon hearing the news that Bachelor in Paradise had been cancelled.

Keira slammed the spin-off series and said she was relieved that Channel 10 had pulled it from its 2021 line-up, describing it as ‘such a s**t show’.

On Thursday, Instagram meme account Bachie Funny shared a screenshot of Keira’s comment, which read: ‘Thank God, such a s**t show.’ 

But it didn’t take long for Bachelor in Paradise star Jamie Doran to accuse Keira of hypocrisy for criticising the show despite appearing on it twice and reportedly earning $50,000 to star in this year’s season.

His clapback sparked a fierce debate in the comments section, with Bachelor fans and alumni weighing in with their opinions.

She and Jarrod had a rocky relationship before ending things in August 2019, just in time for her to sign up for another season of Paradise. 

Channel 10 confirmed on Thursday that Bachelor in Paradise will not be returning next year. However, it’s believed the reality TV spin-off will air in 2022.

‘We love all the excitement, drama and of course love that Bachelor in Paradise brings, but we have decided to rest it in 2021,’ a spokesperson said.

Bachelor in Paradise, which premiered in 2018, was noticeably absent from Channel 10’s 2021 Upfronts presentation on Thursday.

Based on the American format of the same name, the reality series brings together contestants from past seasons of The Bachelor and The Bachelorette for a second chance at love. 

The spin-off doesn’t usually perform as well in the ratings as the main programs, but its figures were particularly disappointing this year. 

Just 539,000 people watched the finale on Sunday, August 9.

Warner Bros. Australia, the company that produces Bachelor in Paradise, is also being sued by Jamie over his negative portrayal – but it’s believed this hasn’t influenced 10’s decision to ‘rest’ the program.

The Bachelor and The Bachelorette will return next year, but filming will take place at a different mansion in Sydney.

Tamar Braxton was seen bundled up as she arrived back home in Los Angeles on Tuesday.

The 43-year-old star looked comfortable in her sweat outfit and sneakers as she added a floppy hat and face mask.

The reality TV star had earlier this week appeared on the Tamron Hall show in New York where she denied being physically abusive toward her ex-boyfriend David Adefeso. The sit down was explosive with crying and claims of having video of the incident with her ex.

The star had on a light beige sweatshirt and light green sweatpants that gathered at the ankle as she was seen at the Los Angeles International Airport with a handler by her side after flying in from New York.

A velvet maroon scarf was seen around her neck that was a nice pop of color. 

The TV fixture was carrying a black coat that had a beige fur collar as well as a cell phone while a black Chanel purse with a gold chain strap was on her shoulder.

In a clip from the Tamron Hall Show shared this week the singer denied David’s claims that she hit him in the jugular while he was driving.

She told Tamron, 50, that her ex had video of the entire incident and urged him to release it to clear up the speculation.

‘I am a survivor of a domestic violence relationship,’ Tamar said.

‘Not at a single point were David and I in an abusive relationship,’ she continued. 

After Tamron pushed her on reports that there was a video of the alleged altercation, the singer clarified that she had made a voice recording, while her ex had a video of the incident.

‘He has a camera in his car,’ she explained.

‘He has the video tape. He has it. It was in his car. Release it,’ she continued as the host repeatedly asked if any domestic violence was on the tape.

Tamar went on to say that she ‘loved David’ and called him ‘an amazing partner’ and her son’s best friend as her voice began to crack and tears welled up in her eyes. 

‘Through everything else, I never expected this from him,’ she added, before taking a break to compose herself.

Back in September, David filed a restraining order against the Love And War singer.

In a video posted to his YouTube channel, he claimed that Tamar attacked him while he was driving at ‘high speeds’ with ‘a blow to my neck, my jugular.’

‘For those of you who know about medicine and the jugular, that’s what carries blood to your brain. When you’re hit there, it discombobulates you. I thought I was going to crash. I was driving fast,’ he continued. 

David claimed that his Rolls-Royce was ‘destroyed’ in the incident, and he claimed that he was a victim of domestic violence who had never attacked or abused Tamar.

He also referenced her mental health struggles and a July suicide attempt, though he urged his fans to avoid stigmatizing mental health issues. 

Tamar was hospitalized for her suicide attempt shortly after the trailer was dropped for her six-episode reality series Tamar Braxton: Get Ya Life!

A representative for David told People that Tamar was ‘punching him so hard’ while driving, though they said he ‘almost crashed his car,’ which seems less serious than his claims that it was destroyed.

‘The DA is investigating the incident and Mr. Adefeso is forced to serve her publicly by taking out an ad in the Los Angeles Times Since she has dodged being served the DVTRO.’

montana brown had miscarriage after falling pregnant while on pill

Montana Brown has revealed she fell pregnant last year while she was taking the contraceptive pill.  

The Love Island star, 24, said ‘it wasn’t that awful’ because she ‘naturally miscarried’ as she warned her fans to take extra precautions to avoid unwanted pregnancies.

Montana – who split from her model boyfriend, Elliott Reeder, in January, after a two-year relationship – explained how she discovered she was expecting a baby, and admitted she was ‘shocked and confused’.

Speaking on her YouTube channel with friend Carms London, Montana made the revelation when explaining her use experience of being on the contraceptive pill.

She said: ‘I’ve been on the pill since I was about 15. I’m sometimes just a bit bad with taking it.

‘To be fair, I’m now very particular with my pill because I got pregnant on the pill, last year. 

‘It was so bad. I was shocked because I was like “no, surely not!” and I remember I found out…

‘It really was awful. To be fair it wasn’t that awful, because I naturally miscarried, but I was actually on the pill when it happened and I was so confused.’

Montana explained that she had discovered she was expecting while at a friend’s house, when she felt a strange sensation in her breasts.

Her friend (a mother-of-two) suggested Montana might be pregnant and gave her a basic pregnancy test to try.

‘I p**sed on the stick…’ said the Love Islander, but despite seeing a faint blue line, wasn’t convinced that she was pregnant.

‘Then I got a clear blue test and it was like “four to five weeks pregnant” and I was like: “Brilliant!”,’ she said sarcastically. 

Confusion: 'It really was awful. To be fair it wasn't that awful, because I naturally miscarried, but I was actually on the pill when it happened and I was so confused,' said the reality star

‘Did you get a bump at that stage?’ asked her friend Carms.

‘No, thank god!’ giggled Montana.

At the end of the YouTube video, the Love Islander warned her fans that the contraceptive pill isn’t 100 percent effective in preventing pregnancy.

Montana then encouraged viewers to take extra precautions when having sex, to avoid unwanted pregnancies.

Earlier this year, Montana took to her YouTube channel to post a candid video about her love life.  

Unwanted pregnancy: 'I got a clear blue test and it was like "four to five weeks pregnant" and I was like: "Brilliant!",' said Montana sarcastically

Reflecting on her split from model Elliott, Montana insisted she is the happiest she has ever been after a ‘life-changing’ few months. 

The reality starlet said: ‘I am officially single, but actually loving it. Also the show must go on, I’m feeling pretty fresh

‘I mean I wasn’t feeling fresh when it first happened, don’t get me wrong, I was pretty down in the dumps.

‘But I feel like everything happens for a reason, I’ve been really able to focus on myself and my personal growth, personal goals.

‘I’ve met some amazing people along the way, I think everything happens for a reason.’ 

What causes a miscarriage?

It is highly unlikely that you will ever know the actual cause of a one-off miscarriage, but most are due to the following problems:

ABNORMAL FETUS

The most common cause of miscarriages in the first couple of months is a one-off abnormal development in the fetus, often due to chromosome anomalies. ‘It’s not as though the baby is fine one minute and suddenly dies the next,’ says Professor James Walker, Professor of Obstetrics and Gynaecology at the University of Leeds. 

‘These pregnancies fail from the outset and were never destined to succeed.’ Most miscarriages like this happen by eight weeks, although bleeding may not start until three or four weeks later, which is worth remembering in subsequent pregnancies. ‘If a scan at eight weeks shows a healthy heart beat, you have a 95 per cent chance of a successful pregnancy,’ says Professor Walker.

HORMONAL FACTORS

A hormonal blip could cause a sporadic miscarriage and never be a problem again. However, a small number of women who have long cycles and irregular periods may suffer recurrent miscarriages because the lining of the uterus is too thin, making implantation difficult. 

Unfortunately, hormone treatment is not terribly successful. 

‘There used to be a trend for progesterone treatment, but trials show this really doesn’t work,’ warns Professor Walker. ‘There is some evidence that injections of HCG (human chorionic gonadotrophin, a hormone released in early pregnancy) can help, but it’s not the answer for everyone.’ The treatment must be started as soon as the pregnancy is confirmed, at around four or five weeks.

AGE 

For women over 40, one in four women who become pregnant will miscarry. [One in four women of all ages miscarry, but these figures include women who don’t know that they are pregnant. Of women who do know that they’re pregnant, the figure is one in six. Once you’re over 40, and know that you’re pregnant, the figure rises to one in four]

AUTO-IMMUNE BLOOD DISORDERS

Around 20 per cent of recurrent miscarriers suffer from lupus or a similar auto-immune disorder that causes blood clots to form in the developing placenta. 

A simple blood test, which may need to be repeated several times, can reveal whether or not this is the problem.’One negative test does not mean that a women is okay,’ warns Mr Roy Farquharson, consultant gynaecologist who runs an early pregnancy unit at the Liverpool Women’s Hospital. 

Often pregnancy can be a trigger for these disorders, so a test should be done as soon as possible,’ he adds.But it can easily be treated with low dose aspirin or heparin injections, which help to thin the blood and prevent blood clots forming – a recent trial also showed that women do equally well on either. ”We have a 70 per cent live birth rate in women treated for these disorders,’ says Dr Farquharson, ‘which is excellent.’

OTHER CAUSES

While uterine abnormalities, such as fibroids, can cause a miscarriage, many women have no problems carrying a pregnancy to term. An incompetent cervix can also cause miscarriage at around 20 weeks. 

While this can be treated by a special stitch in the cervix, trials suggest it is not particularly successful, although it may delay labour by a few weeks.Gene and chromosomal abnormalities, which can be detected by blood tests, may also cause recurrent miscarriages in a small number of couples. 

A procedure known as preimplantation genetic diagnosis can help. After in-vitro fertilisation (IVF), a single cell is taken from the developing embryo and tested for the gene defect. Only healthy embryos are then replaced in the womb.

 It is an expensive and stressful procedure – and pregnancy rates tend to be quite low – but for some this is preferable to repeated miscarriages or a genetically abnormal baby.
