“Should I come back…Nah, I’m tired of this crap!”

Sarah Rice just committed what was arguably one of the best blindsides ever to take place on The Challenge, but don’t expect her to do it again next season.

In fact, the eight-time show veteran has announced that “Battle of the Exes: II” will be her last season of ‘The Challenge.’

“I’m definitely retired, it’s just a weird thing to say,” she tweeted in February.

Earlier this week, she explained her reasons for ending her ‘Challenge’ career.

‘Challenge’ Star Ryan Knight’s Death Ruled Accidental Overdose

Ryan KnightMore information has been released regarding the tragic death of Ryan Knight, star of The Real World and current season of The Challenge. Knight was found dead on Thanksgiving morning last year. TMZ broke the story of his death, but had very few details on what caused his demise, other than that Knight had been partying the night before and may have taken “some pills” before lying down on his friend’s couch to go to sleep. He was found dead the next morning, with his own vomit covering him.

Earlier this week, TMZ released more information regarding what caused Knight’s death. An autopsy was done on the 28-year-old reality star, as well as a toxicology report. The results of the toxicology report revealed that Knight had several drugs in his body at the time of his death, including the painkiller Tramadol, cocaine, methadone (a drug often used to treat an opiate addiction), Xanax and a “high level” of alcohol.

‘The Challenge’ Star Nia Moore Issues Apology After Disqualification

Quit touching other people's no-no's, Nia!

Quit touching other people’s no-no’s, Nia!

Last month, The Ashley tipped you off that a dramatic disqualification was coming on The Challenge, and this week the episode aired, with contestant Nia Moore being sent home after she sexually assaulted her competitor, Jordan Wiseley. She was disqualified from the competition after she unleashed a vicious verbal and physical attack on Jordan and his partner, Sarah Rice. During the attack, Nia pulled down Jordan’s pants, insulted his, um, manhood and called him a gay slur, among other things.

“There is a fine line between calling someone names and then there’s crossing that line and actually physically grabbing and touching somebody and I mean, let’s face it, we can’t touch you. So don’t touch me, at all,” Jordan told the cameras after the groping.

In an emotional message posted to her Instagram account yesterday, Nia expressed her anger and disgust with herself over her actions.

‘Challenge’ Star Sarah Rice Says Blindside Ruined Her Friendship with Johnny Bananas

Looks like Sarah just got crossed off Johnny's Christmas card list...

Looks like Sarah just got crossed off Johnny’s Christmas card list…

Sarah Rice made one of the biggest moves in the history of The Challenge last week when she blindsided her constant ally and good friend Johnny Bananas by sending him and his partner, Nany Gonzalez into the last elimination before the final. (The Ashley won’t reveal what happened on last night’s episode during the elimination since many of you probably still haven’t watched it).

Anyway, Sarah’s big move may have given her a much better chance of (finally!) winning a ‘Challenge,’ but it came with a price. Throwing Johnny into the elimination cost Sarah her “real life” friendship with him.

One of these gals screwed up BIG time!

One of these gals screwed up BIG time!

WARNING: This post will contain mild spoilers. The Ashley will not reveal all she knows (yet) so that she does not spoil the rest of the season. If you don’t like spoilers, click here and enjoy.

Anyway, Johnathan Murray, creator of The Real World and The Challenge, recently did an interview with Reality Blurred regarding the current “Skeletons” season of ‘The Real World.’ While Johnathan’s prespectives on ambushing the ‘Real World’ cast with people from their pasts was interesting, the highlight of the interview came when Johnathan switched gears and discussed ‘The Challenge: Battle of the Exes II.” In doing so, he revealed a huge spoiler for the season. In an upcoming episode, someone will be sent home for inappropriate behavior–but it will be different than any times this has happened in the past!

“When we feel we need to intervene to send someone home, we do,” Johnathan said of incidents involving bad behavior by ‘Challenge’ contestants. “Someone gets sent home this season because of actions they take, and in fact, it’s a woman, not a guy.”

And….The Ashley has the details!

John, who is probably best known for appearing on the first season of Are You The One? retweeted a tweet posted by his current(?) girlfriend, Katie, asking for prayers for John. Katie stated that John had suffered a major heart attack on Monday, and posted a photo of him lying in the ER hooked up to machines.
