As fearful as people are of flying, it’s far more dangerous to travel in a four-wheeled vehicle. More than 37,000 Americans die in road crashes each year, while another 2.35 million are injured. In other words, thousands of serious accidents occur on a daily basis. And if you want to lower your risk of being involved in one of these accidents, you need to practice safe habits.
The Most Common Causes of Car Accidents
Car accidents are never anticipated. However, the majority of accidents stem from one of a few common causes. According to Michael Cordova Injury Attorneys, the most common causes of car accidents include:
- Distracted driving
- Poorly designed roads or intersections
- Drunk driving
- Poor vehicle maintenance
- Reckless driving
- Defective auto parts
- Commercial trucking violations
5 Ways to Lower Your Risk
Being aware of these causes is one thing. It’s something else entirely to actually do something about the risks you face. Here are some suggestions that will help you in the latter regard:
1.Eliminate In-Vehicle Distractions
Distractions are a huge concern. They occur both inside and outside of your car. And while you can’t do anything about the distractions outside the car, you have plenty of influence over what goes on inside.
Common distractions that you can eliminate include radio, navigation, eating, texting, talking on the phone, and interacting with people in the backseat. If you remove these factors from the equation, you’ll significantly improve your focus and lower the risk of making a costly mistake that results in a collision.
2.Practice Defensive Driving
“Don’t make assumptions about another driver’s intentions,” DriversEd.com warns. “If you expect drivers in parked vehicles to remain parked at all times, always yield at intersections, or remain in one lane at all times, etc., you risk being caught off guard when drivers do not do what’s expected.”
Every driver can benefit from honing his or her defensive driving skills – which are essentially a set of skills that allow you to defend yourself against the possibility of collisions caused by bad drivers, drunk drivers, inclement weather, and other unpredictable factors that you can’t control.
Defensive driving skills can be acquired and honed through a formal class, or by practical application of focus and awareness techniques. You can learn more here.
3.Take Care of Your Vehicle
It’s not uncommon for a vehicle malfunction to cause an accident. Common issues include faulty brakes, worn tires, lack of fuel, and malfunctioning brake lights.
The better you are at proactively caring for your vehicle, the less likely it is that any one of these issues will negatively impact your safety.
4.Avoid Driving During These Times
There are certain times of day that are more dangerous than others. More cars on the road obviously means more risk, but there’s only so much correlation. While the most popular time for accidents to occur is between 3 p.m. and 6 p.m. (rush hour), there are also a lot of deadly crashes between 6 p.m. and midnight. Knowing when accidents are most likely to occur can help you make wise decisions about when to drive.
5.Don’t Drive Under the Influence
It seems pretty obvious, but one of the best ways to reduce your risk of being involved in a serious or fatal car accident is to avoid driving while under the influence.
Anything that impacts your alertness, response time, and ability to focus can be very dangerous. While most people know that they shouldn’t drive while drunk, many don’t realize that it can be just as dangerous to operate a motor vehicle while buzzed or high.
Thankfully, it’s easier than ever to find a ride. With ridesharing platforms like Uber and Lyft, you can call a personal driver no matter where you are. If you’re ever drunk, buzzed, or high, be sure to make the safe choice.
Become a Safer Driver
You can’t control everything. There are thousands of independent variables in play any time you get behind the wheel of a car. Having said that, there are plenty of proactive steps you can take to become a safer driver. Make mental notes of these tactics and turn them into habits. If we all work together to replicate these behaviors, we can make American roads safer for everyone.
It wouldn't be a compete rotation of planet Earth if the 24 hours somehow passed without some bonkers new development in the ongoing feud between Ronnie Magro and Jen Harley.
Yes folks, Rahn is back at it -- and we regret to inform you that he once again refuses to stahp.
As you're probably aware, the situation between Magro and his baby mama seems to get uglier by the day.
The current drama began late last month, when Ronnie was tased and arrested after allegedly assaulting Jen at a Los Angeles Airbnb.
Needless to say, the situation has resulted in some major legal headaches for Magro.
Ronnie is facing six years in prison if convicted of all the charges against him.
But it seems he believes the worse outcome is the fact that Harley obtained a restraining order which all but prohibits Ronnie from seeing his 19-month-old daughter, Ariana.
So we guess the latest update on this messy situation contains both good news and bad news for Ron.
The first the bad news -- Jen is telling the whole world that Ronnie cheated on her constantly while they were together, including one instance in which he allegedly slept with her best friend.
But the good news is that, despite his infidelity -- and ya know, that whole violent assault situation -- Jen is looking into having Ron's restraining order lifter.
“You cheated, you lied, you f–ked up. It’s always been you,” Harley wrote on her Instagram story on Wednesday.
“I don’t want to hear about Ron and all these girls I know believe me there has been sooo many screenshots and pictures," she added.
"I’m use to it I know he’s hooking up with my friend to get back at me (back at me for not wanting to get back with him)," Harley continued.
"It’s a cycle that never end. I’m exhausted and disgusted by it.”
Now for the good news
“The protective order issued last Friday is good for the pendency of the case,” Rob Wilcox, a spokesman for the Los Angeles City Attorney’s Office told Us Weekly on Tuesday.
“Once, and if, the defendant is convicted, a more long-lasting one will be issued.”
Sounds like bad news for Big Ronnie.
But bizarrely, it seems Jen has decided that limiting Ron's ability to see his daughter amounts to cruel and unusual punishment.
“I’m not keeping Ariana from Ron I did not ask for a restraining order,” she wrote on Instagram.
“I’m working on getting it dropped so he can see her if he wants too.”
Seems like Jen could work out some sort of situation where Ron has to stay away from her -- again, because of that whole violent assault thing -- but still be allowed to see his daughter.
Eh, whatever. At least these two are trying to do right by their daughter.
We just hope they don't end up getting getting back together "for the kid" again.
If you or a loved one has suffered a traumatic brain injury (TBI) in an accident, you may assume your health insurance has everything covered. After all, TBIs are serious injuries that can impact memory and mental health, coordination, communication, and more – and it’s true that your health insurance will likely cover most of the basic rehabilitative care for this condition. However, caring for someone with a TBI requires more than just medical treatment, and that’s where other funding concerns enter the picture.
In order to finance other types of post-injury care and support, you’ll need deep pockets or, more likely, to win your lawsuit against whoever caused the injury. You have a lot to gain and, with the right lawyer, little to lose by going down this road.
Cover Your Losses
TBIs cover a wide spectrum, from mild cases in which the affected individual recovers nearly full function to those that leave the victim in a vegetative state or comatose. Those with less serious injuries can typically return to work, if with some modifications, but others may not be able to work as much or at all after their injury.
One advantage of filing a personal injury lawsuit is that you can sue for lost wages to help support yourself and your family in the years to come. Your lawyer will work with medical professionals to evaluate your ability to work. Then, based on your age and career trajectory, will determine your estimated losses in this area.
One possible outcome of a TBI is that it may lead to seizures, vertigo, or poor coordination, all of which can make safely navigating the home difficult and potentially dangerous. Unfortunately, most health insurance plans don’t provide any coverage for home modifications, even when a change in medical status makes them necessary.
Funds from a personal injury lawsuit can be critical to adapting the home environment, such as if you need to install stair lifts, ramps, or if you need to purchase a special bed to prevent falls. Some individuals with TBIs also benefit from smaller, but still expensive adjustments, such as larger writing, larger eating utensils, special grips, alarms and emergency alert systems, or grab rails and benches.
It’s a frustrating fact that, though we understand TBIs much better now than we did even a decade or two ago, these injuries come with a great number of unknowns, regardless of an individual’s health and function immediately after the injury. For example, there’s strong evidence that those who have suffered a TBI are more likely to develop Alzheimer’s or another form of dementia later in life. This can significantly impact end-of-life costs, as Medicare only covers medical treatment, not care that is considered “residential” in nature. This can leave families with a big bill.
In response to all of this uncertainty, some UK courts have come to rely on what’s termed a Periodic Payment Order (PPO). These orders account for a potentially shortened lifespan, as well as for inflation. This approach has not been tried in US courts, with victims expected to pay for long-term care out of their original award, however there is a distinct possibility that a PPO could save defendants money in some cases.
It’s hard to think about the long-term immediately after you or your loved one has suffered a TBI, but because of the statute of limitations on many such injuries, it’s important to address those needs quickly. Consult a lawyer and find out what your options are. Having some extra money in the bank can only make your life easier if unexpected care needs arise in the future, and this may be your only chance to make such a claim.
Don’t look at me!
Kaia Gerber went incognito Thursday, Nov. 14 as paparazzi snapped photos of the pin-thin model following her secret date with bad boy beau Pete Davidson, and RadarOnline.com has all the shocking photos!
Covering herself in al-back baggy clothes, a black beanie and huge black sunglasses, Gerber was making her way home after a gym class.
As Radar previously reported exclusively, the couple’s relationship is heating up!
The comedian, 25, appeared at a podcast taping in Brooklyn over the weekend, and Cindy Crawford’s model daughter, 18, showed up to support her man.
According to one eyewitness who attended Triumph The Insult Comic Dog‘s “Let’s Make A Poop” show on Sunday, November 11 at the Murmrr Theatre, their romance was heating up after Gerber and a male friend walked into the venue about 15 minutes into the 9 pm show.
“They sat in the VIP Section in the front,” the eyewitness revealed.
“She left the event around five minutes to 11 with the male friend. And about 15 minutes later, Pete left by himself.”
“There is no way she would’ve gone to the podcast if she were not involved with Pete!”
The Saturday Night Live star was also spotted on a romantic getaway in Upstate New York recently. According to Page Six, Davidson was seen holding hands with Gerber this week at a grocery store in the Hudson Valley town of Hillsdale.
Gerber was even spotted wearing a “P” diamond necklace!
1 Davidson and the much-younger Gerber were first linked on October 23, when they were spotted getting cozy at the New York City restaurant Sadelle’s.
2 They were spotted on a date in Malibu two weeks later.
3 The ladies’ man recently split from actress Margaret Qualley.
4. He was also briefly engaged to Ariana Grande in 2018.
5 He also dated actress Kate Beckinsale, 46, earlier this year, but the couple split in April.

Celebrities are often idolized for their achievements. As such, they’re often treated like they’re more than human, and it often surprises their fans when they do something wrong.
Despite their attempts to save face for the camera, celebrities are only human, and many of them are terrible drivers. Some have caused accidents that resulted in lawsuits, while others have been caught drinking behind the wheel. No matter what you can say about their talents, you must admit that the following 11 celebrities are disasters behind the wheel:
1. Cristiano Ronaldo
Ronaldo is perhaps the most lauded celebrity around the world. He has the most followers on social media, and billions of viewers tune in to catch the games and highlights featuring this highly skilled player.
But he’s not so talented in the car. Two days after purchasing a Ferrari 599 GTB, he totaled it in a Manchester tunnel on the way to practice.
2. Michael Phelps
Phelps, one of the most amazing swimmers in history, has gotten himself into trouble several times over the last few years. He was caught driving under the influence in 2004 at just 19-years-old. He got into a drunk-driving accident a few years later that resulted in his license being suspended. He’s kept his nose clean recently, but the public eye is watching him very carefully.
3. Justin Bieber
The once innocent YouTube star only enjoyed positive media for a couple of years before he made some major mistakes. Along with multiple charges for substance abuse and possession, Bieber has caused many car accidents both while intoxicated and otherwise.
Bieber even hit another person with his car, a media member who was trying to get a story. He’s faced several lawsuits as a result of his indiscretions.
4. Lil Twist
Lil Twist and Bieber seem to be partners in crime when it comes to substance abuse and driving. Lil Twist once crashed Bieber’s car next to a liquor store. Later, he was busted for driving drunk after leaving Bieber’s house—in the same car.
5. LeAnn Rimes
While everyone has an occasional hiccup while driving, country music star LeAnn Rimes has had several. She was the cause of a fender bender in 2009, and rather than taking responsibility for her actions, she fled the scene.
Then, a month later, she was in a car supposedly surrounded by paparazzi when she rear-ended another vehicle. She puts full blame on the cameramen for that one.
6. Paris Hilton
Hilton’s run-in with the law and bad driving got her a 3-week jail sentence. She was caught driving under the influence, which led to a series of serious charges. She’s also had other infractions like speeding or disobeying traffic signals.
7. Halle Berry
Berry put her acting skills to work after an accident she caused. She hit another vehicle while driving in Los Angeles. Rather than confessing to the crime and taking responsibility, she drove away. Then, when traffic footage showed her fleeing the scene, law enforcement confronted her. She pretended not to remember any of it.
Her lie didn’t fly, and she was sentenced to 200 hours of community service, a $13,500 fine, and three years of probation. Unfortunately, this wasn’t Berry’s last accident. There would be two others in the years following.
8. Nicole Richie
You must admit, Richie has made some vast improvements in her lifestyle choices. But at one point, she was a reckless, dangerous maniac behind the wheel. In 2006, Nicole had a little too much to drink and got behind the wheel. She entered a busy California freeway going the WRONG WAY!
That wasn’t her only traffic infraction, and California drivers are frankly relieved that she’s cleaned up her act.
9. Kelsey Grammar
A 1996 car crash sent Kelsey Grammar, the star of Frasier and Cheers, to rehab. He was drunk while driving his Dodge Viper way too fast along a California speedway. When he overcorrected, the car flipped. This accident has gone down in history as one of the roughest accidents for a celebrity.
10. Lindsay Lohan
Former Disney star Lindsay Lohan had her fair share of accidents, including several fender benders, one of which involved hitting an 18-wheeler with her Porsche. She also perpetrated a hit and run accident in 2011, and has several DUIss attached to her record. She’s been among the list of worst drivers in Hollywood since her first accident in 2005.
11. Amanda Bynes
Any bad driver list would be remiss without Amanda Bynes, another former child star with a long list of offenses. She’s sideswiped a police car, earned several DUIs, driven multiple times with a suspended license, driven while high, and fled from an accident that she caused. The former actress has stayed out of the news lately, so hopefully her days of causing accidents are over.
The former Frasier star, 64, claimed that Camille, who went on to appear on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, threatened to divorce him on the day of his mother’s funeral!
Kelsey had formerly kept his lips zipped about his third wife, but on in an interview with In Depth with Graham Bensinger, he said, “Honestly, I don’t really talk about her very much, because so much of her life is spent talking about me and I just think it’s sort of pathetic,” he said of Camille.
After Kelsey and dancer/model Camille met on a blind date in 1996, they wed in August 1997.
A year later, they purchased a lavish $4.5 million Malibu estate with seven bedrooms and thirteen-bath mansion. At first all was well but she wound up filing for divorce in 2010. It was final in 2011.
The actor said he realized he wanted out of their union when, “A month after I had a heart attack my mother died — 12 years ago now — the day of my mother’s funeral, my third wife basically had an explosion about something.”
“And she started telling me, ‘I’m out of this, I’m out of here. I want a divorce, blah, blah blah, which we’d had the same conversation for eight years, and it was tiresome,” he continued about the marriage from hell.
“I realized at that moment that I was done with her, that I was not going to end up in this relationship for much longer. And somewhere under a year I was done.”
Grammer much prefers his fourth wife Kayte Walsh, whom he married in 2011.
The ex Cheers star said Walsh has “a little more perspective” and is “wise” and a “whole person.”
Kelsey and Camille had to use a surrogate mother to have their two kids Mason and Jude, putting strain on the marriage.
She accused him of cheating on her and got the last laugh when the comedian had to pay her a whopping $30 million divorce settlement.
Although they’ve been divorced for eight year Kelsey’s new interview proves feelings are still raw.

Anytime you’re injured, it’s important to take care of yourself physically and psychologically. When injured, your body goes into a stressful mode that can be harmful if maintained for too long. For instance, when your body goes into “fight or flight” mode, it pumps adrenaline and cortisol through your body. If you don’t take the time to relax your body, that mechanism won’t shut off and you could end up with permanent damage.
Here are some self-care tips for recovering from a serious injury:
1. Treat symptoms of inflammation immediately
Inflammation isn’t the enemy – it’s your body’s natural response to trauma that serves to protect and heal. However, inflammation that lasts too long can be damaging. You’ll probably be given a prescription for some kind of anti-inflammatory drug, and there’s nothing wrong with relying on medication when necessary. However, if you’re the kind of person who prefers natural remedies, there’s another option: CBD.
Studies have shown that certain cannabinoids modulate inflammation and reduce neuropathic pain. That’s why so many people are using CBD to treat inflammation and neuropathic pain. Although contraindications are unlikely, talk to your doctor before using any CBD products.
2. Don’t underestimate your recovery costs
When you don’t know how long your injuries will take to heal, it’s easy to underestimate your recovery costs. Allow your lawyer to fight for as much compensation as they feel is appropriate, even if it seems like too much money. When your medical bills pile up, you’ll be extremely grateful you didn’t refuse a higher settlement.
A lawyer will fight for as much compensation as possible to account for the potential long-term cost of your injuries. For instance, the Kindley Firm points out the difficulty of estimating how much physical therapy will cost long-term. When you don’t know how long your recovery will take, you can’t accurately predict your expenses. You might need weeks or years to completely recover. A personal injury lawyer who is familiar with similar cases will have an idea of potential complications and unexpected expenses you might incur.
Those unexpected expenses also include lost wages that can extend into the future for an unknown period of time. You might think you’ll be back to work in a couple months, but what if it takes a year?
3. Avoid stress – don’t underestimate your medical costs
Underestimating your recovery costs can cause extreme stress. The most important rule of self-recovery is to reduce stress as much as possible. Nothing generates stress like unexpected large hospital bills.
For example, say you go to the hospital to get checked out and they order a CT scan. You may not realize a CT scan can cost thousands of dollars and your insurance might only cover a few hundred bucks. If you knew the true cost beforehand, you’d be able to think critically about whether you actually need a CT scan or not. You would be empowered to request a cheaper test first, like an ultrasound. Ultrasounds don’t pick up on everything, but if there’s a possibility it might – it’s worth trying first.
4. Meditate daily
A simple daily meditation will do wonders for reducing your stress and keeping your body from feeling overwhelmed. The more relaxed you are psychologically, the easier it will be for your body to recover.
You don’t need to do any special kind of meditation. All you need is a quiet room, a blindfold to block light and allow your eyes to relax, and a pillow to sit on. Sit on your pillow in any comfortable position, pull your back up straight, close your eyes, and inhale several deep breaths. Your heartrate will begin to slow down and you’ll feel more relaxed. You don’t have to focus on anything at all. When thoughts arise, observe them and let them go.
If you feel like a guided meditation will work better, check out Mindful.org’s article titled The top 10 Guided Meditations of 2018. The list includes a basic breathing meditation, mindfulness and compassion meditations, and even one for easing into a good night’s sleep.
Your emotional state will affect your physical healing
Support your body’s recovery by maintaining a sense of calm throughout the day. If you’re sensitive to nervous system stimulants, avoid sugar and caffeine.
Reacting to stressors won’t change your circumstances and a disrupted emotional state will prolong your physical healing. The best thing you can do to promote healing is to give your body and mind some rest.
The Real Housewives of Orange County ratings have stayed high after Vicki Gunvalson was demoted to a “friend” on the show, RadarOnline.com exclusively learned.
The OG of the OC was crushed when Bravo took away her full-time housewife status after 14 years on the show, relegating her to a few appearances during the season.
And while many fans vowed to boycott RHOC in solidarity with Vicki, the numbers show a different story.
According to TVByTheNumbers.com, RHOC’s Nov. 12 episode came in second place, with their 18-49 demographic rating rising from 0.4 to 0.5.
With 1.363 million viewers the show was holding strong in the 14th season.
RHOC ratings have remained consistent for the season that began without Vicki in August, and the premiere scored 1.42 million viewers, up from the previous season’s 1.41 million viewers, TVByTheNumbers.com reported.
“I’ve been watching since season 1 and it’s so sad how different the show is now,” on commenter wrote on Vicki’s Instagram page, and she responded: “I couldn’t agree with you more.”
The viewers have remained steady throughout the season despite Vicki’s shocking demotion, where she only appeared in a smattering of episodes.
The Oct. 29 episode won the night on cable, pulling in 1.326 million viewers with a 0.5 in the coveted 18-49 demographic.
Season 13 of the show hit a low with just 1.18 million for the season finale, while Season 14 has never had an episode that low.

For months, Aaron Carter has claimed to be totally fine even as fans grew increasingly alarmed that his health may be backsliding.
Unfortunately, it appears that the fears of those who love him have been confirmed.
Aaron has now been hospitalized, and his mother has shared a photo with the world.
In the early afternoon of Thursday, November 14, Aaron Carter's Instagram updated with this photo of him in the hospital.
"Mommas gonna take care of you," the caption reads.
While that caption would be a little odd coming from Aaron himself, it seems clear that this was his mother updating his Instagram.
We are glad that he is in the capable hands of medical professionals during this health crisis, and that he has family by his side.
Aaron Carter's mom, Jane Carter, spoke to TMZ about her son's condition.
On Thursday, he arrived at her home in Florida.
At first glance, she could tell that he appeared to be dangerously underweight.
Aaron now weighs 115 pounds, she reveals. That is an alarming weight for a man his height. Aaron once weighed 160.
Aaron's blood pressure has been tested.
TMZ reports that he is currently connected to equipment that monitors his heartrate.
Jane says that she took no chances when it came to her son's health.
She drove him to the ER herself. Better safe today than sorry forever.
Jane says that Aaron's poor physical health was brought on, at least in part, by recent family drama.
Both Nick and Angel Carter, Aaron's siblings, have taken out restraining orders against Aaron, alleging that he is unstable and has been making threats.
In September, Nick took this legal measure after claiming that Aaron threatened to murder his then-pregnant wife.
And Angel took out one of her own after a disturbing phone call in which she reports that Aaron threatened to have her killed by hitmen.
Aaron's mental and physical health have been major concerns for countless fans.
For years, Aaron insisted that his extremely slender body was the result of physical ailments only.
However, more recently, the singer admitted that he has struggled with body image and has an eating disorder.
Could it be that stress related to family drama has exacerbated his health struggles? That is what his mother believes.
We have included both older photos of Aaron at his skinniest and healthier pictures from after he began to put on weight.
Aaron has hearings scheduled for next week to address his family's restraining orders.
When people are under an extraordinary amount of stress, personal struggles -- from eating disorders to addictions -- can resurface.
Someone who has experienced disordered eating may sometimes find themselves again limiting their food intake in order to feel a measure of control.
Some cynics may suggest that this hospitalization is merely an attempt at a "stalling tactic"
But honestly? That doesn't make much sense.
Dramatically losing weight and being hospitalized for it is not an ironclad defense against accusations of instability.
Besides, Aaron has stated that Nick's restraining order is an attempt to defame him after he publicly sided with Nick's #metoo accusers.
No matter what comes of the sibling feud and court cases, we hope that Aaron makes a swift and full recovery.

Well, the year of the great Duggar baby boom is almost an end.
Two Duggar women are still expecting, but once they deliver, we probably won't have any new pregnancies to report on for quite some time.
We're sure the occasion is bittersweet for Jim Bob and Michelle, whose joy is at its zenith when there are numerous buns in numerous ovens.
But hopefully, they're consoled by the fact that they now have roughly 4 billion grandchildren to dote on.
And with the end of the boom, the entire family can breathe a bit easier -- as, while the past 12 months have brought great joy to the Counting On Clan, all that happiness didn't come without a price.
Sadly, two Duggar women suffered miscarriages this year.
Shortly thereafter, Josiah Duggar's wife, Lauren Caldwell suffered a miscarriage.
Obviously, the loss of a pregnancy is a deeply sad occasion under any circumstances, but the Duggars believe life begins at conception
And so, Joy-Anna and Lauren mourned the loss of their pregnancies in the same way that they would mourn the death of an infant.
Fortunately, Lauren's grief was transformed into joy when she found out that she was expecting once again.
Fans got to see the moment that the whole family learned of Lauren's pregnancy on a recent episode of Counting On.
“We’re expecting,” Josiah blurted out during a camping trip.
“We had been trying for quite a while after the miscarriage, and when we found out we were expecting, literally we were shocked. I couldn’t believe it and just cried," Lauren said in a confessional segment.
“We were scared, but life is very precious and we are so thankful for this. We may be a little nervous at times, but we’re just going to be grateful," she added.
Josiah and Lauren were both clearly ecstatic, but it seems Kendra Caldwell was just as excited as the expectant couple.
Apparently, Kendra had been suffering from the pregnant Duggar equivalent of survivor's guilt.
She was also expecting at the time Lauren announced her pregnancy, and it seems she felt unable to enjoy the period of anticipation due to her compassion for Swanson's plight.
“[Lauren] just had a miscarriage and it was kind of hard being excited about me expecting when I knew that they were really hoping for a baby. To find out that they were pregnant too made me feel better,” Kendra said during the episode.
“Finding out that Lauren's not just expecting but expecting and her due date was only a week after mine was super exciting.”
And the concurrent pregnancies have made for a rather exciting November.
Kendra gave birth to her second child on November fourth.
Lauren welcomed her first baby just a few days later on November 8.
The Duggars have very complex views regarding pregnancy, and it seems that Lauren's situation was regarded as especially sad due to the fact that it was her first pregnancy.
As such, she was unable to take comfort in raising her other children.
Fortunately, her grief has not been assuaged by the arrival of what the Duggars would call a little blessing.
And that enables Kendra to take joy in her little miracle, as well.
Jaclyn Hill isn’t letting backlash from her faulty lipstick scandal stop her from being a makeup mogul. After announcing the re-launch of her makeup brand with a collection of highlighters, RadarOnline.com can exclusively reveal what other products Hill plans to sell.
According to the United States Patent and Trademark Office, Hill, 29, requested to trademark Jaclyn Cosmetics and Jaclyn Hill on July 3, 2019. The trademarks are currently live.
The goods and services listed are cosmetics, make-up, lipstick, blush, skin bronzer, eye shadow, false eyelashes and make-up brushes.
The trademark requests come after the May 2019 launch of her So Rich Lipstick collection. The line offered 20 different shades of nude lipsticks.
But her first launch wasn’t a success, as multiple customers claimed hair fibers, pieces of metal shards, lumps, black holes and more were found in the lipsticks.
Following the backlash, Hill promised to issue to full refunds to every single customer in June who had purchased a lipstick.
“I don’t care about the loss of this money,” she said in an Instagram Story. “You know how embarrassing this is for me. I will do everything in my power to make this right moving forward and learn from this lesson God has given me.”
In August, she revealed the company is taking a break to rebuild.
“At Jaclyn Cosmetics, we’re dedicated to giving you the best products & customer experience,” the statement on the Jaclyn Hill Cosmetics Instagram read. “It is clear that our first launch did not meet the standards we’ve set as a brand, and for that we are truly sorry.

The Real Housewives of New Jersey star Teresa’s husband is begging the Third Circuit Court to appear before a panel of judges to present his oral argument in his deportation appeal, RadarOnline.com can exclusively report.
This comes after the court notified Joe’s lawyers on November 7, 2019 that the panel would come to a decision without an oral argument.
According to Pennsylvania federal court documents filed on November 12 and obtained by Radar, the 49-year-old fraudster submitted a letter to explain why an oral argument is necessary.’
According to reports, an oral argument can make or break a case.
Judge Michael Kavanagh, who served on the Appellate Division of New York State Supreme Court for nearly seven years, explained the importance of an oral argument in a 2017 essay.
“I witnessed firsthand the impact (both good and bad) oral argument can have on the outcome of an appeal,” Judge Kavanagh wrote in a NAM law publication. “Always ask for oral argument if it is permitted on an appeal. It represents the only opportunity practitioners will have to discuss with the court the issues that have been raised by the appeal before the appeal is actually decided. If done well, it has been my experience that, an effective oral argument can serve to put your client’s position in a more favorable light than what is reflected in the briefs. And, at the same time, address any questions members of the court may have about your position.”
As Radar readers knows, this is Joe’s final chance to come back to the U.S.
Joe completed a 41-month sentence for mail, wire and bankruptcy fraud in March, but was immediately transferred to ICE custody.
(He was ordered to be deported in October 2018, since he was not a U.S. citizen when he committed the crimes.)
His ICE transfer was covered on this week’s episode of RHONJ.
“How do you explain to a 9-year-old that maybe their daddy’s not coming home?” Teresa cried on camera. “They don’t care about the legal stuff. They’re like, ‘Why is this happening?'”
After months of fighting his deportation from a hellish ICE facility, he was released in October 2019 upon his own request, and immediately shipped off to his native country.

Look. We wish we'd never have to write about Derick Dillard ever again.
Trust us on this one.
We can think of much better ways to spend our time than to pay any attention at all to someone who bullies transgender youths and who seems to have no tolerance for anyone with a different set of beliefs.
We're just not big fans of Dillard around here.
And it turns out that he isn't a big fan of Jim Bob Duggar or of TLC. What a shocker, right?!?
What has Derick said now about his father-in-law and about the network that fired him?

Jenelle Evans: Does She Deserve Sympathy as David Eason’s Victim, or Condemnation For Endangering Her Children?
As you've likely heard by now, Jenelle Evans filed for divorce from David Eason last month.
Not only that, Evans has been granted a restraining order against Eason after accusing him of issuing threats and abusing her children.
We probably don't need to tell you that Jenelle has never been terribly popular among Teen Mom 2 viewers, and that was especially true in the months before she was fired from the show.
She spent several years defending David and enabling his abuse of children and animals.
And, of course, Jenelle has faced countless accusations of neglect and abuse and bigotry -- not the kind of behavior that tends to earn the affection of reality TV audiences.
But now, we know that Evans was a victim herself, a fact that no doubt influenced her actions, at least during her time with David.
So perhaps it's not surprising that there's a debate raging on social media over whether or not Jenelle is deserving of sympathy.
We'll present both arguments, and you can decide for yourself if she's an victim, a perpetrator, or some untidy combination of both:

Little woman, big family! Terra Jole is pregnant with her third child, RadarOnline.com can confirm. The Little Women: LA star is expecting her little one with husband Joe Gnoffo.
“Life is about to get even more chaotic and joyful in the spring with our new blessing,” the TLC stars told Radar in a statement. “So excited to finally be able to share this big news (and not have to hide the growing belly anymore!) and really enjoy this pregnancy.”
The proud parents continued, “We are feeling all the emotions right now as our party of four becomes a party of five!”
The new addition will join big sister Penelope, 4, and big brother Grayson, 3.
Terra, 39, is currently 21 weeks pregnant and is expecting her third child just five days before Penelope’s 5th birthday in March.
In an interview with People, Terra revealed the pregnancy was not planned.
“This child will forever be a blessing,” she told the website.
As Little Women: LA fans know, their daughter Penny has achondroplasia, the same type of dwarfism as Terra.
Penny has undergone multiple brain procedures. She started “officially walking” this week.
As for Grayson, he has the same form of dwarfism as Joe, 42, called pseudoachondroplasia.
“Being little may be challenging at times, but it has made us who we are today,” she told People. “It won’t always be easy. It won’t always be hard, but embracing dwarfism will hopefully be instilled in both our children.”
But Terra isn’t the only Little Women: LA star to be pregnant!
She filed for an annulment from husband Todd Gibel in June 2019. The case remains ongoing.
Scroll through RadarOnline.com’s gallery to see Terra show off her baby bump!

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry just made our week.
In honor of Prince Charles turning 71 years old today, the polarizing Royal Couple took to their official Instagram account to both send Harry's dad a few birthday wishes...
... and to present followers with a gift of their own:
A new photo of son Archie!
“Happy birthday to His Royal Highness The Prince of Wales – Sir, Pa, Grandpa!” Markle and Harry wrote online, adding a cake emoji.
The picture included along with this message (above) was snapped by the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s wedding photographer, Chris Allerton.
In the never-before-seen snapshot, we get a fresh look at young Archie's christening back in July, as grandfather and regular father look adoringly at the newest member of the royal family.
The exciting release comes at an interesting time for Meghan and Harry.
The famous wife and husband seem more detatched from their famous relatives than ever before, as Kensington Palace announced just yesterday that Markle and her Prince will NOT spend Christmas with the Queen this year.
That's a pretty big and a rather unusual deal.
"The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are looking forward to extended family time towards the end of this month," a spokesperson said on Wednesday, adding:
"Having spent the last two Christmases at Sandringham, Their Royal Highnesses will spend the holiday this year, as a new family, with the Duchess' mother Doria Ragland."
It's unknown at this time exactly where they'll be hanging out for the holidays with Markle's mother.
All we can say for now is that it will not be in Los Angeles, sources have confirmed.
As you might expect, the royal family is playing it cool, as the aforementioned spokesperson concluded his statement about the holiday season as follows:
"This decision is in line with precedent set previously by other members of the Royal Family, and has the support of Her Majesty The Queen."
We've gotta imagine the Queen is either fuming... or that she was the one who didn't want to spend Christmas with Markle, who she may or may not detest.
This decision follows earlier reports that Meghan and Harry were planning to bring their son to America for the first time for a family break.
Heck, there's even a report that claims Markle and Harry may move to America. Can you imagine?!?
Prince William and Kate Middleton, meanwhile, also paid tribute to Prince Charles this week on social media with a photo of Prince Louis being doted on by his granddad.
“Wishing a very happy birthday to The Prince of Wales!” they wrote.
Jen Harley is spending a fortune on her new image after splitting from Jersey Shore star Ronnie Ortiz-Magro.
As RadarOnline.com has learned, the model is undergoing a revenge body makeover which started with getting a $30,000 butt lift procedure.
The mom of one opted to enhance her curvy figure with a one-hour non-surgical Brazilian Butt Lift just weeks after calling it quits with her baby daddy. In new photos, she is seen wearing nothing but a thong for her procedure with Dr. Jamie Schwartz in Beverly Hills, California.
During the procedure, capsules of fat from other patients were injected into her backside!
Jen’s extreme makeover comes just days after Ronnie appeared in court to deny seven misdemeanor charges stemming from a domestic violence case on October 4.
Radar readers recall the couple got into a heated argument outside their home following a night of partying with friends. During their fight, Ronnie allegedly attacked Jen and ran after her with a knife, he then reportedly locked himself inside the bathroom of their house while carrying 1-year-old daughter Ariana Sky.
Jen called police, who broke down the doors to the house, fearing Ariana could be in danger, and arrested Ronnie. The reality star, however, failed to cooperate, prompting police to user a taser gun on him before sending him to the hospital in an ambulance.
After the incident, Ronnie was let go and was ordered to stay away from Jen and their daughter. The emergency protective order was lifted just one week later, however, and Ronnie celebrated by taking Ariana to Disney World.

For ages, Dancing With The Stars fans have wondered if Hannah Brown and Alan Bersten are dating. They'd make a very cute couple.
But as they made their stunning red carpet debut at the CMA Awards, fans were reminded repeatedly that they're just friends.
These two dance partners have charmed audiences. This week, Alan teased fans on their next big dance challenge.
Hannah Brown's look for the CMA Awards was nothing short of breathtaking.
Fans of The Bachelorette and Dancing With The Stars alike ahve seen her show some skin and flash her athletic legs.
This was something different. Hannah looked like a princess in her gorgeous white dress and stark red lipstick.
Alan Bersten looked great by her side. He was well dressed and, as always, handsome.
Hannah Brown's chemistry with Alan Bersten has not gone unnoticed by fans and viewers.
They are both 25 and both are extremely attractive.
The pair also have a good rapport, getting along well with one another and getting along.
However, that does not mean that they're in a relationship. They're friends and dance partners. Anything else is tilting at windmills.
Hannah has been sure to quash those romance rumors as they have arisen.
"We are dance partners, and we have the best time together, and we have a friendship that is great," she affirmed in September.
"I think I’m done with roses," she noted. "So mirrorball [trophy] is what we have our eye on."
That is a very tasteful and even poetic way to shut down rumors that any of her tangos with Alan have been horizontal.
"There’s going to be a new side of Hannah,” Alan teased earlier this week.
“There’s going to be a nice and different side," he revealed.
"She’s going to be nice to me!" Alan joked. "No, I’m kidding."
Awww, these two are just so cute. You can see why some overeager fans like to imagine that they're boning on the regular. But they're not.
"I’m really excited," Alan expressed.
His anticipation was high "because we’re going to have more of an emotional dance."
"So I’m really excited for that," he explained. "We haven’t really shown that side yet."
That's true enough. Hannah's dancing has been positively masterful, but not always evocative.
In fact, Hannah has received some "tough love" from judges over seeming like her mind and passions are disconnected from the dance.
While we wouldn't stoop to calling her dancing "robotic" in any way, her excellent form cannot quite compensate for ... emotional reservation.
That said, Hannah and Alan are easily one of the strongest dance teams this season.
Hannah consistently outperforms most of her competition, though James Van Der Beek continues to give her a run for her money.
Hannah and Alan's smiles at the red carpet debut were so sweet!
We sincerely hope that overeager shippers who'd love to see them together do not end up ruining a beautiful friendship.
In the mean time, we look forward to watching these two continue to dominate on Dancing With The Stars.
That said, Hannah will really have to go the extra mile if she wants audiences to believe that she's a better dancer than James Van Der Beek.

The post <em>Jennifer Lopez</em> Shaking Her Ass in <em>Hustlers!</em> appeared first on The Nip Slip - Celebrity Nudity.
Jennifer Lopez recently joined actresses Laura Dern, Scarlett Johansson, Renee Zellweger, Awkwafina and Lupita Nyong’o for a feminist roundtable discussion, during which Lopez revealed that once a director asked her to take off her shirt while not on set:
I said, ‘no,’ I stood up for myself. But it was so funny because I remember being so panicked in the moment. And by the way, there was a costume designer in the room with me. So there was another woman in the room and he says this and I said ‘no.’
Lopez added about the encounter with the unnamed director (she refused to identify him even after being directly asked by Johansson):
Luckily, a little bit of the Bronx came out, and I was like, ‘I don’t have to show you my — No. On the set, you see them.’
That’s the thing, because if you give in, in that moment, all of a sudden that person is off and running, thinking they can do whatever they want. And because I put up a little boundary right there and said no, he laid off and then later on apologized. But the minute he walked out of the room the costume designer was like, ‘I’m so sorry, I’m so sorry that just happened.’
We get it Jennifer. Everyone wants to see your boobs. Backdoor brag much. But honestly this is such a horrible story and it sucks that we have to hear about it.

TUMI luggage is up to 40% off at Century 21 right now, meaning we can grab chic travel necessities for less, leaving us extra room in our budget for vacation activities, souvenirs — or that seat upgrade on the plane!
This flash sale doesn’t even last for two whole days, so we’re serious when we say the time to act is now. Check out five of our favorite picks below and get ready for a relaxing getaway!
This Sleek, Spinning Suitcase
We will never buy a suitcase without four wheels again. They make life so much easier when we’re rushing to our gate at the airport, and the hardshell exterior and TSA lock on this one will help us feel extra secure so we don’t have to worry about damaging or losing our belongings. Plus, that navy is so gorgeous!
This Red Hot Backpack
This nylon backpack is perfect for looking stylish regardless of the weather. Its leather and gold-tone details are gorgeous, and we love how it lays flat when we don’t need it. It can also easily be attacked to our suitcase in case we’re going on a really big trip with lots of luggage — or if we just like to be careful. You never know what you might need!
This Sophisticated Leather Tote
A tote made just for traveling? How did we live so long without one? We love the neutral shade of the pebbled leather and the fact that there’s a removable shoulder strap, as well as a band in the back for our suitcase. Add in the laptop compartment, the metal feet and the lining and we’re never going anywhere without this bag!

Not so fast. Vicki Gunvalson was close to winning her legal war with ex-boyfriend Brooks Ayers after he ignored her lawsuit. But RadarOnline.com can exclusively reveal he’s finally fighting The Real Housewives of Orange County star’s fraud claim against him.
In court papers obtained from Clark County District Court in Nevada, a Status Check: Default hearing was set for Friday, November 8. Although Ayers was served with the lawsuit in May 2019, he did not respond to her complaint, prompting the hearing that could’ve resulted in him being hit with a default judgment.
Although no parties attended the hearing, the defense counsel for Ayers communicated with the court. A Status Check: Further Proceedings hearing has been set for December 6, 2019.
As Radar reported, Gunvalson, 57, sued Ayers for breach of written agreement, breach of verbal agreement, fraud and more on March 29, 2019, claiming he owes her over $266,000.
She claimed in the complaint, “Commencing in or about 2011, Plaintiff Gunvalson and Defendant Ayers entered into a series of loans wherein Ayers borrowed various amounts of money from Gunvalson and Gunvalson agreed to loan such amounts to Ayers.”
The parties executed a written agreement regarding the loans on February 18, 2016.
“Ayers acknowledged the balance due on the loans in the amount of $184,899 to Gunvalson,” the court papers read. “Ayers agreed to provide an accounting of all sums paid to him in various income streams.”
She claimed he did not pay her back and that he failed to provide accounting as stated in the terms of the agreement.
In 2013, the two were involved in litigation in Clark County, Nevada. They incurred legal fees and expenses from legal representation through April 2015.
“Ayers was unable to pay his portion of the attorneys’ fees and costs incurred on his behalf in the litigation,” the court papers read. “The Parties entered into a verbal agreement wherein Ayers borrowed $81,652,97 from Gunvalson to pay for the legal services, attorneys’ fees and costs incurred in the Las Vegas litigation.”
Ayers has “failed and continued to fail to remedy or make good on the said account to Gunvalson.”
She claimed Ayers “had no intention of ever repaying either of the loans.”
She also accused him of “concealing and continuing to conceal accounting of his records” to “intentionally defraud and oppress Plaintiff.”
The Bravo star is asking for the sum in excess of $15,000 to be determined at trial, reasonable attorneys’ fees, costs incurred or to be incurred, interest and more.
Gunvalson and Ayers ended their relationship in August 2015 following his fake cancer scandal. He claimed he suffered from Stage 3 Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma. Although he admitted to forging medical records, he maintains he was diagnosed with cancer.
While Gunvalson is now engaged to boyfriend Steve Lodge, Ayers moved to Mississippi and is married.

After gaining the upper hand in his custody war with Kathryn Ravenel, you might think that noted criminal Thomas Ravenel would keep quiet for a while.
Just kidding -- the failed politician and disgraced former reality star wouldn't know how.
Instead, he's airing his awful opinions to anyone who will listen, and absolutely trashing Southern Charm ... while claiming that he's "just kidding."
Thomas may not be welcome on Southern Charm anymore, but Twitter has no such standards, and Thomas is using the platform to speak out.
"There’s this stupid rumor that I want to go back to Southern Charm," Thomas begins.
He then asserts: "I wouldn’t go back for $1,000,000 per episode."
"But if they want to discuss $1,000,001 per ep," Thomas clumsily jokes. "I might consider it. Lol."
"Please don’t misunderstand," Thomas continues.
Perhaps he imagines that he somehow got people's hopes up.
"All kidding aside," he writes. "I hope the show does well and thrives,"
Thomas clarifies: "But without me being a part of it."
A wise fan jumped in and replied to Thomas, writing: "Trust and believe honey, we don’t want you back!"
"Then you should not worry yourself about it," Thomas' own reply reads.
He announces: "I’m never coming back and I made a joke. Bye bye."
Well, that's a relief! We prefer to see his face on his various mugshots rather than on reality television.
Thomas has also been using social media to espouse his horrendous political opinions.
We don't merely believe that he's a Donald Trump supporter, though that's no real surprise. Water will always find its own level.
But he seems very proud of his tweets in which he totally misunderstands foreign policy and fiscal policy.
He clearly doesn't understand the depths of his confusion, which is why he advertises it freely on Twitter. What a clown.
The only thing on Thomas' Twitter worse than his political views are his piss-poor attempts at jokes.
His career as a comedian would be even more short-lived than his foray into politics was.
In the mean time, we suppose that he's focused on being a father, as he has Kensie and Saint for a week and a half out of every fortnight.
Poor Kathryn has since taken to Twitter to claim that she's totally fine with the new custody arrangement.
"Just want to let my fans hear from me officially that Thomas and I have resolved all matters related to our children," her tweet this week begins.
She expresses: "I believe that this joint custody arrangement is in our children’s best interests."
"Happy to move forward," Kathryn claims.
Her very formal tweet concluded: "Thank y’all for all of your patience,support & love."
Thomas was apparently so proud of his "$1,000,001 per episode" joke that he has it as his pinned tweet at the moment.
It's important to remember that, for many people, growing up in a rich family is detrimental to vital brain functions such as self-awareness.
But Thomas cannot blame his crimes on his family or on Patricia Altschul.
The choices that he makes as an adult are his alone.
Blanca Blanco knows how to dress, how to accessorize, and also how to wardrobe malfunction. This beautiful babe hit the town the other night and came precipitously close to a wardrobe malfunction when the left side of her dress took a dip and exposed the top part of her areola. It’s quite a sight to see Blanca Blanco’s wardrobe malfunction, though you may need a magnifying glass to tell me if there’s anything more than a hint of nip involved.
I don’t know who that dude is with her, but he looks like some sort of unholy cross between Dennis Quaid, Ryan Reynolds, and Alan Cumming. He’s definitely looking stylish and also making no attempt to save Blanca Blanco from this imminent wardrobe malfunction. Maybe he hoped to see her left breast as well and was just standing by waiting for something amazing to happen.
Any way you slice it, Blanca Blanco dodged a bullet here as this is the closest I’ve seen to a wardrobe malfunction without the woman actually showing much of anything. In the future, photogs, don’t let Blanca Blanco know that her dress is slipping. Just let it happen and enjoy!

The Real Housewives of New Jersey asked viewers to go back in time this week.
Granted, the series does this every week because episodes are filmed months in advance of their airing.
However, it was an especially strange installment to watch unfold on Wednesday night because it centered on Joe Giudice being taken into custody by ICE...
... when, in real time, we know he's now living in Italy and actually just spent a few days with his family.
But back to the episode, and therefore back in time:
"Joe called me at 4:30 in the morning, and he told me he was already transferred to ICE," Teresa said during a somber confessional, adding:
"I was shocked. I was like, 'Oh my God, this is so early.'
"But they transferred Joe in the middle of the night to avoid the paparazzi. It just stings and it just hurts, 'cause you know, he did his time. He's not coming home, and I had to get the frustrations out."
Footage then depicted Teresa trying to enjoy an early morning workout and then returning home to a call from her brother.
I definitely need a drink," she replied, before revealing that the girls were "not good" and explaining:
"Gia posted something on her Instagram. Milania's home. She's saying she's feeling sick, but I know she's sad about Joe."
This all sucks, Teresa told the camera.
She continued along these sad lines:
"All my girls are affected by Joe not being here, but Milania shows it the most."
Teresa then went upstairs to check on Milania, but when she knocked on her bedroom door, Milania yelled back: "Go away! Will you stop annoying me?"
"We all wanna move on with our lives and be happy again, but it's impossible because it's still hanging over our heads that Joe could be deported," Teresa explained.
We often make fun of Teresa and Joe because they're clearly terrible people.
But it's important to remember that young women are stuck in the middle of this scandal -- and we received an unfortunate reminder last night when Teresa said her nine-year old daughter was being bullied at school over her father's situation.
From here, Joe actually called his family.
But the conversation, from the discomfort of the ICE holding facility, did not go very well.
"Holy shit, you have a minute left on the phone?" Gia said to her dad, as Milania yelled at her sister:
"Can I please talk to him!?" Gia gave the phone to Gabriella, who spoke for a few seconds, then handed it to Milania.
She sighed into the phone and said: "I want you to come home. I love you so much, Buddy."
Alas, as we now know, Joe never did come home. He went straight from ICE custody to Italy, where he currently resides and waits to learn about his deportation appeal.
Elsewhere, Danielle Staub came back into the picture because Teresa asked for her to be included in a random obstacle course adventure for the group, organized by Dolores Catania.
This storyline came out of nowhere, but at least prompted Margaret Josephs to wonder how Danielle could possibly complete an obstacle course.
"Her pussy ring could get caught!" she noted.
Fast forward to things getting very complicated and Margaret going to her girlfriend's boutique to shop for an outfit for Melissa's birthday party.
Gina, the boutique owner, was dating Danielle's now-ex-fiancé -- Olivier Maier, a businessman who she claimed was also the Duke of Provence -- when he proposed to Danielle back in February, one week after she finalized her divorce from Marty Caffrey.
Got all that?
Margaret then referred to Danielle as "the Duchess of Dicks" and told the camera:
"Olivier is a very rich guy, and when Danielle smells money, she doesn't care whose dick she has to suck to get to it."
Gina told Margaret she was still healing from the betrayal of a once-boyfriend and a former friend.
The women agreed Danielle was "pure evil," with Margaret saying that "everybody's onto her except Teresa."
Just amazing all around.
In the end, Teresa and Danielle actually won the obstacle course... and then everyone headed to Dolores' house for lunch.
Cue the fireworks!
Teresa got all pissed off during the meal over Jackie saying that she had cheated on her husband.
Melissa therefore asked her sister-in-law if she'd be able to control herself around Jackie at her 40th birthday, but Teresa couldn't make that promise.
"She's said a lot of f-cked up shit to me," she said, as Staub laughed and noted that this was "another party I'm not invited to," referring to Jennifer's husband's work party.
Jennifer explained why she couldn't have someone who's able to "flip the switch" so easily involved with her husband's profession, prompting these two got into it, which is when Margaret stepped in and brought up her friend, Gina.
"You're the one that after four years of having an affair with Joe, you decide to dignify Jan with a divorce!" Danielle shouted at Margaret, who clapped back:
"It wasn't four years. By the way, I have an ex-husband that adores me, my current husband adores me. That's a lot more than you could say for yourself."
"It was still cheating!" Danielle said. Margaret replied by calling Danielle a "prostitute."
And we'll wrap up the chaos with this exchange:
"You f-cked a lot more married men than I have," Margaret added, causing Danielle to stand up and announce she was "leaving because I'm not gonna sit here with trash."
She referred to Margaret as "homewrecker, f-cking piece of shit," concluding:
You talk about me like that? You're a sick f--king human being! F--king whore!
By now, you're probably familiar with one of the most bizarre and upsetting celebrity news items of 2019.
Earlier this month, T.I. admitted to abusing his daughter in what he clearly thought was a display of fatherly protectiveness.
The internet disagreed, and the rapper - whose real name is Clifford Harris - was shamed for his inappropriate intrusion into the sex life of 18-year-old Deyjah.
Asked during a podcast appearance if he's had "the sex talk" with his children, T.I. replied that he's gone much further than that.
"Have I? This is the thing: Deyjah's 18, just graduated high school now and she's attending her first year of college, figuring it out for herself," Harris said.
He added: "And yes, not only have we had the conversation, we have yearly trips to the gynecologist to check her hymen."
"This is what we do. Right after the birthday we celebrate," he continued.
"Usually like the day after the party she's enjoying her gifts. I put a sticky note on the door: 'Gyno. Tomorrow. 9:30.'"
And why would T.I. demand that his daughter go to a gynecologist immediately after her birthday every year?
The answer is sure to nauseate you!
"I'm like, 'Deyjah they want you to sign this. They want you to sign this so we can share information. Is there anything you wouldn't want me to know? Okay. See doc? No problem,'" the rapper explained.
"I say, 'Look doc, she don't ride no horses, she don't ride no bike, she don't play no sports, man. Just check the hymen please and give me back my results, expeditiously,'" Harris continued.
"I will say as of her 18th birthday, her hymen is still intact," the father of six proudly concluded his tale.
Shortly thereafter, Deyjah unfollowed T.I. on social media, leading many to the conclusion that she wasn't thrilled with her father's decision to humiliate her in front of the entire world.
Who would have thought?
Unfortunately, it seems Tip is still receiving plenty of support on the homefront.
His wife Tiny, for example, seems wholly unbothered by his remarks.
Tiny posted the below pic to her Instagram page this week,
She captioned the photo with a Spanish declaration of eternal love writing, “Mi amor por siempre.”
Tiny has kept a low profile in recent weeks, so it's not surprising that the comments section exploded with concern for Deyjah.
“Is Deyjah OK?” one follower asked, adding, “We care.”
Tiny replied with an eye-roll emoji, and her response received a mixed reaction from fans:
“Don’t [eye-roll] your husband literally embarrassed her in front of millions,” wrote commenter.
“Maybe her [eye-roll] is her not being enthusiastic about the situation. It’s not her daughter so I’m sure she has no input,” another argued.
That's a generous interpretation - but it seems to us that Tiny is 100 percent #TeamTip, which makes us very sad for Deyjah.
On Monday, Derick Dillard, 30, went after TLC once again in a fiery tweet to fans. As Radar readers know, he and Jill were axed from their family’s show, Counting On, after he made controversial comments about transgender teen Jazz Jennings. Duggar blog Duggar Family News: Life Is Not All Pickles and Hairspray first uncovered the tweets.
Dillard has insisted for years that he was not fired – and on November 12, he hinted at the possibility of taking legal action.
“@TLC has issues. They begged us not to quite (sic) filming, but then didn’t want to talk directly with us about why. If money is all they care about, then it’s going to catch-up with them – you must care about ppl. All I’ve got to say is, they better lawyer-up b/c a storm is inevitable,” Dillard wrote.
Then, in more uncovered tweets from Jill’s husband, the ex reality star went after his own father-in-law, Jim Bob, for being shady with his kids’ income!
On October 18, a fan questioned Dillard about why Jim Bob gets “all the money for the show and doesn’t give any to his children?”
Dillard then responded, “I don’t know. You would have to ask him that.”
Dillard’s comments are likely to create more tension between himself and Jill’s side of the family. As Radar readers know, Dillard went against family tradition and enrolled himself into law school.
In order to still provide for his family, Dillard also reveals he has a part-time job working as a Grubhub delivery man. Meanwhile, it appears he’s not so happy with Jim Bob for allegedly controlling his kids’ finances.
Radar has reached out to TLC for comment.

“It’s Candy Land Kourtney, it’s not gonna be healthy,” Kim says, getting frustrated.
“But it can be!” Kourtney says. “It’s not gonna be healthy no matter what, sugar’s not healthy, but I’m saying let’s do not the nasty stuff with like food coloring and all like gross s**t.”
“Give me an example of candy you want,” Kim says.
“I don’t know, I’ll have to look into it, I said that we could have the organic cotton candy…” Kourtney says as Kim interrupts, “the party is in eight days.”
In confessional, Kim voices her annoyance.
“Kourtney has this vision of no sugar, or no disgusting chemicals in candy, it’s like a completely sugar-free, gluten-free, party-free, fun-free zone because Kourtney has decided that. It just doesn’t make sense, and it really wasn’t the theme of what North and Penelope wanted for their birthday,” the KKW Beauty mogul says.
Back in the car, Kourtney continues defending her point.
“There’s just better solutions to things instead of your dated candy that’s like literally food coloring that gives people diseases,” Kourtney says.
“This is like not the right theme,” Kim says.
“So switch the theme!” Kourtney argues, saying that her “brand” is not sugary candy.
“Your brand?” Kim asks in shock. “This is about a kids’ party, this is not about your brand.”
Kourtney insists that Kim’s sugar-filled party theme is against “what I stand for.”
“Then why does your car have leather seats? Why are you wearing plastic glasses?” Kim replies, leaving her sister speechless.
In confessional, Kourtney says she “can’t believe Kim isn’t willing to compromise at all and that she doesn’t feel guilty about giving not only her kids and my kids, but all these kids that are coming to our party so much junk and candy. Its just like… it’s such a dated vibe to be like that.”
Still, Kim doesn’t give in.
“Like, I want a fun kids’ party with real candy,” she says.
“Well, that’s your problem,” Kourtney answers, ending the argument.
As fans know, the sisters eventually resolved their differences and threw their daughters a colorful Candy Land birthday party.
Still, their on-screen fight was filmed just weeks before Kourtney recently decided to leave her long-standing family show. During an appearance on Entertainment Tonight earlier this month, the mom of three revealed she will not be a big part of the series’ season 17, as she’s deciding to focus on spending time with her kids rather than filming.
Her exit didn’t come as a shock to fans who know the Poosh founder has wanted out of the family business for quite some time, and has been dreading filming due to her not-to-great relationship with sister Kim.

People’s Sexiest Man Alive is John Legend. I get pretty turned on by talent so I’m willing to throw my support behind this. Plus, not only is John always so well-dressed, he speaks up for his convictions and those are also on my sexy checklist. Of course, another incredibly sexy attribute is “devoted partner” and I think we all know where John falls on that scale. He discussed his relationship with wife Chrissy Teigen in his SMA interview and what he said was beautiful. Specifically, what he said about going through their infertility struggles and Chrissy’s postpartum depression John said it strengthened their bond once they got out the other side.
John Legend and Chrissy Teigen’s beautiful family looks picture-perfect on social media, but the couple’s journey to parenthood wasn’t easy.
The supermodel-turned-TV host, 33, first surprised fans when she revealed in 2015 that she and Legend had been trying for years to become pregnant. Then two years later Teigen opened up in a moving essay about her heartbreaking battle with postpartum depression after their daughter Luna, now 3½, was born.
“[Parenthood] deepens your love for your partner because you see them in a different light going through, in our case, the trouble of actually having a kid,” says Legend, 40, who’s also dad to 18-month-old son Miles.
“Then Chrissy’s going through postpartum depression. You just see different sides of that person, and if you go through it and you learn from it and you come out the other end better for it, then it deepens and strengthens your relationship.”
If I didn’t agree with his SMA before, this would’ve pushed me over the edge for sure. Discussing the toll infertility or PPD takes on a relationship is not as common as discussing the toll it takes on the individual. And to hear John say it put Chrissy in another, better, stronger light for him is heartwarming. I was so incredibly grateful to my husband when I was struggling hormonally following my son’s birth, I whole-heartedly co-sign John’s comments. I honestly don’t have anything to add because, as always, he found the perfect words to convey it, “if you go through it and you learn from it and you come out the other end better for it, then it deepens and strengthens your relationship.”
Speaking of Chrissy, she’s having a blast with the SMA announcement. If you don’t follow her on Twitter, I suggest you at least check her out.

Demi Moore’s tell-all memoir came out a few months ago, and nearly every gossip outlet ran excerpts from the memoir. The parts which got the most attention were about Demi’s marriage to Ashton Kutcher, and how gross and toxic it was and how Ashton was a total douchebag. Much of it we already knew, like the threesomes and how he cheated on Demi constantly and how his words and actions just made her feel like sh-t. Instead of reacting like an adult and just issuing a one sentence statement – perhaps “While I think Demi is misremembering parts of our marriage, I respect her right to tell her story” - Ashton decided to pull a juvenile stunt and then… leak some sh-t to People Magazine about how his marriage to Mila Kunis is super-strong and he hates Demi or something. Anyway, it’s been more than a month since all of that stuff happened. And I guess Ashton is still talking about how he’s ignoring Demi. Dude.
Demi Moore revealed some of her most intimate moments with ex-husband Ashton Kutcher in her tell-all memoir Inside Out, including allegations of infidelities and threesomes during their eight-year union. Kutcher, who’s now married to Mila Kunis, 36, has not commented but a source tells PEOPLE although he is not happy about Moore’s memoir, “he pretty much ignores it.”
Moore, 57, and Kutcher, 41, first began dating in 2003 after they met at a dinner party. The actress was in her 40s, while Kutcher was 15 years younger. They wed in 2005 and divorced in 2013. During their relationship, Moore had a miscarriage six months into her pregnancy. The loss, she wrote, in her book left her “empty, desperate, confused. . . . I really lost sight of everything that was right in front of me, which was the family that I had.” She began drinking again after being sober for two decades. In the book, Moore claims Kutcher questioned whether alcoholism was real or not. On a Nov. 4 episode of Facebook Watch’s Red Table Talk she recalled, “Ashton said, ‘I don’t know if alcoholism’s a thing. I think it’s about moderation.’ ”
But she quickly pointed out that Kutcher wasn’t to blame for her sobriety slip and instead says it was because of her own desire to “be that girl”: “I made my own story up, that he wanted somebody that he could have wine with. I wanted to be something other than who I am.”
Meanwhile, Kutcher has kept his focus on his work and raising his two kids with Kunis — daughter Wyatt, 4, and son Dimitri, 2. “He is busy with a full life and has moved on,” says the source.
Okay, so I didn’t realize that Demi’s Red Table Talk was so recent. That’s why Ashton is chiming in yet again, and it’s not like “go home, Ashton, no one has been talking about this for weeks.” Honestly, this should have been his first and only statement when the book came out: “Sources close to Ashton say he’s ignoring it and he moved on years ago.” It would have simple and there would have been few follow-up questions. But whatever, he couldn’t help himself. Douche gonna douche.
You may not be familiar with Megan Pormer—lord knows I sure as hell wasn’t—but after seeing the brunette beauty’s new photoshoot for Shoe Dazzle and Erika Jayne, you’re almost guaranteed to be a fan for life. A former child star in her native Dubai, Megan has seemingly left the world of acting behind to focus on her modeling career, and frankly why wouldn’t she? She’s certainly got a body built for any sort of sexy career path.
I think the main attraction here is the shoes, but you simply can’t put a woman as sexy as Megan Pormer in lingerie and expect me to pay the slightest bit of attention to her footwear. It’s like a woman with her tits out reminding you where her eyes are… what’s the fucking point? I’m going to fail the test, but it’ll definitely be the sweetest test I’ve ever failed.
So whether you like the shoes or the lingerie, there’s no denying the power of sex that Megan Pormer brings to both of these items courtesy of this photoshoot. It’s going to be a long wait before we see Megan Pormer looking this sexy again… even if she turns up in lingerie again tomorrow, that’s too long to wait!

Another NBC Scandal! Ex-Correspondent Bruce Hensel Arrested For Allegedly Asking 9-Year-Old For Sexual Photos
Bruce Hensel, a former NBC News medical correspondent, has been arrested for allegedly asking a 9-year-old girl for sexual photos.
According to a Los Angeles Times report, Dr. Bruce Hensel, 71, was charged this Wednesday, November 13, in the case. He was accused of contacting a minor for sexual purposes after he allegedly asked the underage daughter of a friend for inappropriate images this August, through an online app.
Hensel faces one felony count and if convicted, could serve up to 18 months in prison. His court date has not been announced.
The former correspondent — who joined NBC4 in 1987 and worked in both New York and Los Angeles — is now being investigated by the Los Angeles Police Department. Police say the launched the investigation after learning Hensel had allegedly exchanged inappropriate messages and photos with the young girl.
Hensel’s home in the Pacific Palisades was searched on October 16, with detectives from the Internet Crimes Against Children unit leading the investigation. He was booked into the Los Angeles Police Department’s Metropolitan Detention Center. His bail was set at $5,000.
Though Hensel has not released a statement in relation to his case, his lawyer, Steve Sitkoff, told reporters that the arrest came as a shock to the team.
“We are cooperating fully with the authorities and we are looking forward to a speedy and complete exoneration,” Sitkoff told NBC4.
RadarOnline.com readers know Hensel’s scandal comes one year after Megyn Kelly was let go from NBC for her controversial blackface comments, and two years after Matt Lauer was fired following multiple allegations of sexual assault.
Now, Discovery has released a teaser trailer -- and a premiere date -- for Season 11.
Big changes are on the way, but that's not the scariest part. See the trailer for yourself:
It takes a village to raise a child, so the saying goes.
In the Brown family, it takes children to build a village -- which is exactly what they're doing.
Bam, Bear, Gabe, Noah, Bird, and Rain are working on establishing themselves on Billy's the sprawling 435-acre property in rural Washington State.
It's a lot of hard work, but if they want to establish a future, they're going to need to build their new homes from the ground up.
"We have a unique way of doing this," Noah Brown says at the beginning of this teaser trailer for Season 11.
Given that this is the Brown family, he could be talking about just about anything.
Noah freely admits: "I don’t know what normal is."
As if to illustrate that fact, we see Bear climbing and howling, as is his want.
"A new kingdom will rise," teases the trailer's captions, as Billy says: "This is our next big thing."
Bear, in his very distinct accent, says: "It’s a job done."
We see various (mostly) adult children working on moving heavy equipment.
Bear then says: "Teamwork, persistence, and a lot of awesome." He also rolls on the ground for unclear reasons.
Off screen, one of the sisters -- almost certainly Rain -- issues a clear warning of just how high the stakes are when building homes in the wilderness.
"If one of us makes one mistake," she notes. "We could actually get hurt."
We then see an alarming, jarring moment when Rain and Gabe are on a platform that abruptly destabilizes and tilts to the side.
"I thought I was going to die," Rain freely admits.
Season 11 of Alaskan Bush People will premiere on December 4 on Discovery at 8pm.
In addition to construction drama, we imagine that the relationships and new roles will have a part to play in this season.
Noah is the first of the Brown children to produce a granchild, but Gabe and Bear are also expectant fathers.
Speaking of Bear and Raiven, they recently announced that they are expecting a boy. And that's not all. ...
"Once again Raiven and I have decided that we are better as friends!" Bear wrote on November 5.
He and Raiven dated for months before going public, but since then, have been on-again, off-again both before and after the pregnancy news.
"So we’ve gone our separate ways!" Bear added. "We however are still both looking forward to raising our little miracle as co-parents."
Bear added: "We actually broke up a few weeks ago, Raiven had been getting a lot of people sending her stuff."
"So I thought it was better to wait the week or so before I posted about it!" Bear explained. "Please don’t tag Raiven in my posts,"
"it’s been hard enough on her without the added stress!" he emphasized. "If Raiven or I decide to date anyone in the future! We will both be okay with it!"
"We just want everybody to be happy!" Bear expressed. "I won’t be dating anyone else for sometime! I still have feelings for Raiven!"
"I respectfully ask everybody to please give her some space and peace of mind!" he concluded. "Thank you for all your support! Stay AWESOME and God bless!!"
So the engagement is off again, for now. It's so sad that Bear's so-called fans played such a large role in harassing Raiven for weeks and weeks.
Blake Shelton divorced Miranda Lambert in 2015. He took her by surprise and did some kind of hokey (but legal) quickie divorce thing, where it was over in about two weeks. He basically ordered her to pick up her sh-t from the Oklahoma ranch they shared (which was his) and that was it. He moved on with Gwen Stefani and Miranda had a string of lovers until she married Brendan McLoughlin earlier this year. Miranda and Blake still see each other at country-music functions and awards shows, and clearly, they have not yet buried any hatchet. I don’t even think they’ve spoken to each other since 2015. And Miranda went out of her way to avoid CLAPPING for Blake at last night’s CMA Awards:
Miranda Lambert and her husband, Brendan McLoughlin, didn’t feel the need to stretch their legs after her ex-husband, Blake Shelton, sang his hit “God’s Country” at the 2019 Country Music Association Awards.
“Everyone stood up to clap for Blake at the end of his performance except Miranda Lambert and her husband,” an eyewitness tells Us Weekly exclusively. “At the commercial break, they both left their seats.”
Shelton, 43, attended the 53rd annual ceremony at Bridgestone Arena in Nashville with his girlfriend, Gwen Stefani, on Wednesday, November 13. The eyewitness tells Us that the couple, who started dating in 2015, “were nodding their heads” during Lambert’s “It All Comes Out in the Wash” performance earlier in the night.
Shelton was nominated for three awards on Wednesday, and took home one: Single of the Year for “God’s Country.” Lambert, meanwhile, was up for Female Vocalist of the Year, but lost to Kacey Musgraves.
Blake Shelton and Gwen bopped along to Miranda’s performance but… Miranda made a thunderface during Blake’s performance and she sat on her hands? This would be such a big deal if the CMA Awards were conducted in a f–king middle school. I mean, congrats to Blake and Miranda for managing to be at the same event without tossing salads at one another. If all we’ve got to go on is “a refusal to clap” and my assumption of a thunderface, then they’re keeping it reasonably professional.

It's been a roller coaster year for Demi Lovato.
When 2019 began, the singer was fresh out of rehab and looking to rebuild her life with a man she had met in treatment.
Lovato's relationship with Henry Levy quickly fizzled, but she didn't let heartbreak get her down for long.
Over the summer, fans were abuzz about rumors that Demi was dating Mike Johnson of The Bachelorette fame.
But it seems the two were happy to stop at the "friends with benefits" stage, and they went their separate ways after a brief fling.
Now, however, there's a new man in Demi's life, and it looks as though this is no mere rebound romance.
As we learned earlier this week, Demi is dating a man named Austin Williams.
At first, people thought it was Justin Bieber in the pic, and the internet went absolutely bonkers.
Considering Bieber is newly-married, that would have made for quite a scandal.
Once the dust settled, fans noticed something interesting about the pics posted by Demi and Austin:
Namely, they both alluded to very strong mutual feelings in their caption.
Demi wrote, "My (heart emoji)" on hers, while Austin was even more blunt, writing, simply, "My Love."
Yes, it seems these two are in love, and they don't care who knows it.
So who is Austin?
Well, he's 100 percent not Justin Bieber, but he's led a pretty interesting life regardless.
Wilson is a 25-year-old model and California native.
His father, George Wilson, is a well-known skateboarder, and one of the famous Z-Boys of Dogtown.
It probably goes without saying that Wilson is a fan of tattoos, and he's reportedly sporting ink from some very well-known artists.
While it's currently unclear how Wilson and Lovato met, they were both grief-stricken by the loss of a mutual friend earlier this year.
Back in October, Demi revealed a small "T" tattoo in honor of a young man named Thomas who passed away unexpectedly.
Wilson paid tribute to the same Thomas on social media:
"RIP bro I love you so much. I'm so grateful for the times that we had while you were here. You are such a special soul," Austin wrote.
"You had the biggest heart and made everyone feel like a million dollars. I know you're looking down on us now."
Due to the timing, fans have speculated that Austin and Demi bonded over their shared grief.
But thus far, that's just speculation.
All we know for sure at this point is that Demi and Austin are in love -- and the singer seems very happy with her new man.
We wish her all the best in her new relationship.
Bethenny Frankel built her food and beverage line and all her branding around being thin. She has a few books with tips and recipes about it, and she loves talking about it too. It’s not easy to stay thin in your late 40s, if that’s something you’re striving for, as the pounds creep on over the years and small amounts can add up. I get it and I work on that too, I just find it superficial as hell. (I mean I know I’m that way, it’s just not my main focus in life.) US Magazine asked Bethenny at an event for holiday diet tips. She started off well and said that you shouldn’t be on a strict diet and should indulge reasonably. Some of her other advice was decent too, but of course she said disparaging things about eating and gaining weight because that’s how she is.
“I’m a fan of indulging,” [Bethenny Frankel] told Us… “I think people are always told how to restrict and my feeling is you have to teach people how to indulge. It’s OK to have some cake, it’s OK to have some cookies. If you’re getting buckets of popcorn and brownies, choose how you’re going to invest — the way you invest in shopping, the way you invest in money. You don’t go and just buy everything, you just pick your spots. So, that’s how people should handle the holidays.”
For Frankel, it’s more harmful to have a strict diet during the holiday season because it can lead to unhealthy binging. “You say you’re going to be drinking green juice and eating steamed vegetables for the holiday season, you’re going to eat five times the amount and blow up like a tick,” she told Us.
She advised people to eat before attending holiday parties “otherwise you’ll be grabbing every hors d’oeuvre.” When it comes to sipping festive cocktails, Frankel urged partygoers to drink water in between drinks to avoid overeating while buzzed. “It’s a marathon, not a sprint, the holiday season. Can’t call in full the next day,” Frankel said.
The Skinnydipping author added that cheat meals aren’t in her vocabulary because she doesn’t “think it’s cheating.” Instead, she believes the word can cause people to not achieve their diet goals.
“I eat everything,” Frankel said. “If you think it’s called cheating, then you beat yourself up for it, then you rebel, then it’s a vicious cycle. My book, Naturally Thin, is all about ‘treat your diet like a bank account.’”
I tend to eat a lot at parties because the food is great and I don’t drink anymore so I may as well eat. I can’t get on board with this pre-eating thing, that’s assuming the food I have at home is better than typical party food and it never is! It sounds like Bethenny doesn’t care about that at all. However I do treat my diet like a bank account and eat less the rest of the day because I know I’m going to have a lot at one event. I also agree with her that you shouldn’t have “cheat foods” or “forbidden foods.” As I often mention, I count calories and it’s easier to keep a balance when you know how much you’re eating and what you have left. Plus then you don’t have to give up entire categories of foods. That seems like misery to me. That’s Bethenny’s default setting though so it probably doesn’t matter what she eats.

The biggest struggle when it comes to losing weight is making sure it actually stays lost. We work so hard to rid ourselves of it, but when we say what we think is our final goodbye, it returns — and often at full speed.
That’s the issue with trendy diets like keto or paleo. They don’t introduce realistic, long-term solutions, and keeping up with them can be a rough undertaking. Our wellness journey should be an enjoyable one. That’s why we’re solely sticking to Noom from now on!
In 2016, Nature Research published the results of a study on weight reduction maintenance via smartphone apps, focusing on Noom users. 35,921 users were observed over a year and a half, and everything was taken into account from frequency of food logging, to frequency of weigh-ins, to overall weight loss or gain. The study found that over a nine month period, 77.9% of participants reported a decrease in body weight while using Noom — and the prevalence of obesity was cut by 30%. That is seriously phenomenal!
This study also found that dinner input frequency was the most important factor in maintaining weight reduction. Dinner is often our biggest meal of the day, so the more we remember to log our food, the more successful we may be. Same went for weight logging, which helped to deter the yo-yo effect!
The special thing about Noom is that every individual user’s plan is different. It’s made to fit our lifestyle, our dietary preferences, our goals and our level of athleticism. Each user is assigned a Goal Specialist trained in cognitive behavior therapy who will check in with us once a week in one-on-one support sessions to make sure we’re happy with our plan or to make any necessary changes.

As RadarOnline.com has learned, the actor — who recently suffered a relapse — plays a former high-school-basketball-phenom-tuned-construction-worker fighting with addiction in the upcoming sports drama, The Way Back.
“So proud of this one and the incredible team behind it. Here’s your first look at #TheWayBack, a story of endurance and redemption. In theaters this March,” Affleck, 47, tweeted this Thursday, November 14, along with a link to the movie trailer.
— Ben Affleck (@BenAffleck) November 14, 2019
In the film, Affleck’s character, Jack, loses a full university scholarship and ruins his marriage due to his vices. As his life continues to fall apart, his alma mater’s basketball coach suffers a heart attack, and Jack is offered the gig.
“It keeps me busy. Keeps my mind off of other things,” Jack says of his new job, not willing to show how truly invested he really is.
From then on, Jack takes smalls steps to improve his life, but his lifelong demons prove tough to get rid of.
“I spent a lot of time hurting myself,” he says in the teaser as scene of him crashing a car drunk and being carried into his home fill the screen. “I made a lot of bad decisions. I’ve got a lot of regrets.”
Affleck’s shocking role comes as the actor himself suffered an unexpected relapse, days after celebrating one year of sobriety. The incident occurred during a Halloween party, which he attended with new girlfriend, Katie Cherry. There, reporters caught clips of him stumbling drunkenly to his car.
When he was questioned about the event the next day, Affleck — who’s been to rehab three times and has long admitted to substance abuse issues — brushed it off, saying “It happens, it was a slip, but I’m not gonna let it derail me.”
Still, a fellow partygoer exclusively told Radar “You could tell he was so out of it,” and “he was clearly plastered.”
As of now, the actor is continuing his sober counseling. He has not given any more details about his recent mishap.

I still can’t get over how categorically absurd the full title of this summer’s Fast & Furious spin-off Hobbs & Shaw is: Fast & Furious Presents Hobbs and Shaw. It feels like the movie should open with Vin Diesel in his garage working on a car when he suddenly stops and says, “Oh, I didn’t see you there. You know something, Hobbs and Shaw get up to some pretty crazy shit when I’m not around. Let’s check it out…” Better movie.
Perhaps the craziest shit that The Rock Johnson and Jason Statham’s characters do in this film is pursuing a helicopter in a car, eventually bringing it down with a giant chain. It’s noisy, fiery, and absolutely boneheaded, just about everything you could expect for a film from this franchise. The good folks over at Screen Junkies have given us their latest Honest Trailer for the film and they really take the film to task for its ridiculous action set pieces.
At the same time, it kinda celebrates all the stupidity on display, ultimately throwing its hands in the air and just giving in to all the dumb fun happening. It seems that they learned, as did the rest of the world, that when it comes to the Fast & Furious movies, no multitude of cuts can kill them. Fast & Furious Presents Hobbs and Shaw is now available on DVD, Blu-ray, 4K Blu-ray, and On Demand!
David Eason wants everyone to know that he's gonna be okay.
He knows how concerned the public is over his state of mind in the wake of Jenelle Evans planning to file for divorce at some point in the near future.
The former Teen Mom star took followers by surprise in late October when she announced via Instagram that she was finally pulling the plug on her effed up marriage to the violent bigot.
Explained Evans in this unexpected message:
"I've mostly kept off social media the past few days because I've been focused on making some big life decisions. I've lived my life on camera since I was 17 years old.
"And alot (sic) of it hasn't been pretty. But its been my life."
“Like anyone else I want what's best for my kids and I want to be happy," Jenelle continued about three weeks ago, adding:
"With time away from Teen Mom, I’ve started to look at my life differently and I know I need to make changes. I’m starting that now.
“The kids and I have moved away from David.
"Nobody gets into a marriage expecting it to end but I know that’s what is best for me, and for my kids. Today I’ve filed papers to start that process."
In the days since confirming her break-up, Evans has remained mostly quiet.
She hasn't trashed David on social media or anything -- although she HAS filed a rather disturbing restraining order request that outlines 11 different instances of abuse at the hands of Eason.
A judge granted this retraining order against Eason and you'll understand why when you read the details provided by Jenelle below:
As for Eason, however?
At one point, he accused Jenelle of stealing the ex-couple's daughter, Ensley, and threatened to file a police report.
But he never followed through with this random threat and/or elaborated (and Ensley is doing just fine right now, under the care of Evans).
Now, he's shared a message on Instagram that we guess is meant to assure followers that he's found a way to cope in the middle of all his romantic strife.
And it centers around David's love of weapons.
After starting a custom metal and woodwork company in August, Eason has taken to Instagram to show off his new collection of knives.
“This is my meditation,” Eason told fans online this month, explaining in further, somewhat disturbing detail:
“It heals my soul to create things. I just can’t wait to make the next one, make it better and get that much more gratification.”
For the record, in case Evans is doubting her decision to divorce Eason, we hope she takes comfort in the fact that David considers the creation of knives to be his "meditation."
Just let that sink in for a few moments.
We also really hope someone steps in to help David's daughter, Maryssa, because she seems to be petrified of her dad these days.
For understandable reasons we'd say, right?
