Cris O’Bryon (Henry Flemming), Walter Murray (Stan Spencer), Kristin Woodburn (Suzy Spencer)

Lots of men have midlife crises, but few take them to such an absurd extreme as Henry Flemming.

Feud: Candace and Bianca

Candace Cameron Bure says "Not Today Satan," Del Rio agrees.

One thing you may not want to do is bring attention to the “Hurricane” herself, Bianca Del Rio, especially if you are a conservative and wearing a t-shirt with a catchphrase she made  popular on the drag reality show “RuPaul’s Drag Race.”

If you think the Bette and Joan Feud is a bit heated, wait until you see what the drag superstar and “Fuller House” lead are arguing about.
