Mama June seems upbeat about love these days.
The From Not To Hot star is all about weddings right now.
Fans saw her contemplating her own wedding to boyfriend Geno after her daughter’s boyfriend romantic gesture.
Josh Efird proposed to her daughter Lauryn ‘Pumpkin’ on the latest episode on Friday.
Honey Boo Boo was seen busting him looking at rings on his iPad then helping him to pick one from a pawn ship in Georgia.
After practicing his proposal Josh arrived in with adorable daughter Ella.
He dropped to one knee and perching his daughter on the other – she was wearing a ‘onesie’ that read: ‘Mommy will you marry my daddy?’
However, despite the romantic gesture, he was met with looks from both June and Pumpkin.
“He’s in for a real beheading when she tells him she never wants to marry him,” says June
“I almost feel sorry for him.”
But fans are left hanging after she says ‘What are you doing?’ as the episodes ends.
However, as RadarOnline.com reported, the pair got hitched in Las Vegas in May. And their romance seemed to have rubbed of on Mama June.
During the episode she gushes about Geno and that he may have changed her mind about marriage.
“It’s made me realize he’s the one I want to spend the rest of my life with,” she tells Pumpkin at one stage.

Johnny Depp is back on stage. The actor was hit by allegations of booze benders after images of him appeared looking very thin. RadarOnline.com has all the details about his latest appearance on stage – click through the images for more.
Rapper XXXTentacion, who was shot and killed on Monday in Florida, was tracked by two alleged assailants who followed him into a motorcycle store, a detective has claimed.
According to the New York Times, explosive new details have been revealed in the officer’s affidavit about the star’s murder.
Rap fans were devastated to hear the news that XXXTentacion, 20, whose real name was Jahseh Onfroy, was ambushed outside Riva Motorsports in Pompano Beach, Florida on the afternoon of June 18.
He was rushed to the hospital but died after the bizarre broad daylight shooting.
Dedrick Williams, 22, has been arrested for XXXTentacion’s death, but there are two suspects. Another man, who is also believed to be involved, hasn’t been apprehended.
According to court documents obtained by the New York Times, the suspects followed the rapper into a motorcycle dealership before shooting and robbing him in his car less than half an hour later.
In his affidavit, Detective John Curcio of the Broward Sheriff’s Office described evidence taken from video surveillance, including images of orange sandals worn by one of XXXTentacion’s killers that led to Williams’ arrest on Wednesday for alleged first degree murder.
Curcio says that XXXTentacion had gone to Riva Motorsports in Deerfield Beach, Fla., at 3:30 p.m. on Monday, with an unidentified friend.
Two minutes later, two men allegedly got out of a dark sport utility vehicle and followed the rapper into the store; one wore bright orange sandals. They bought a mask at the parts department.
According to the police affidavit, the two men then left the store and moved their car to another area of the parking lot.
When XXXTentacion tried to leave the lot in his BMW at 3:55 p.m., the papers stated, the suspects’ S.U.V. blocked him.
The two men reportedly were masked and armed and got out of their own car to demand property from the rap star.
“After a brief struggle, the victim is shot,” Detective Curcio wrote.
The men allegedly then stole a Louis Vuitton bag from XXXTentacion’s car and sped away in their vehicle.
Williams was held without bond after a hearing on Thursday. He has a court date scheduled for Monday, June 25.
XXXTentacion’s lawyer had previously suggested that his client had visited the bank before going to the motorcycle store.
The legal eagle has opined that the singer was the victim of a robbery gone wrong.
Beloved HGTV stars Chip and Joanna Gaines just added one more farmhand to the family. On Saturday, the Fixer Upper hosts’ brood grew with the birth of the couple’s fifth child, a son. Although the news of another baby initially surprised fans of the Waco-based design-and-reno duo, the anticipation surrounding the child has seemingly grown exponentially since Chip and Joanna made the announcement back in January. But arguably no one has been more excited than Chip himself.
that the couple was expecting a little boy, he also hinted that he was leaning toward names that start with “D” to match sons Drake, 12, and Duke, 9. It remains to be seen whether the Gaines patriarch got his way, or whether mama Jo got hers — the arbiter of home style reportedly wanted to break tradition and give the new baby boy a “C” name.
Who knows? Maybe they’ll both win that argument in the long run.
During a recent interview for People’s cover story, Joanna confessed, “I joke with my friends that I’m going to be the 45-year-old who’s pregnant. Chip is such a kid at heart and we both love a big family. I’m open to whatever. I’m just having fun with it.”
Josh Waring, the son of former The Real Housewives of Orange County star Lauri Peterson, can’t seem to stay out of trouble in jail — where he has been waiting for the past two years to face attempted murder charges.
According to court documents obtained exclusively by RadarOnline.com, Waring is under fire for numerous dangerous and serious behavioral problems, including slashing one inmate with a modified razor in August and another inmate in December.
In his declaration, Orange County Sheriff’s investigator Donald Lee also said Waring, 28, has been caught with porn, prescription drugs and “pruno,” or jail wine.
As Radar readers know, ex-RHOC cast member Peterson has long been in agony over her troubled son Waring’s jail drama.
Waring, who appeared on the Bravo show years ago, was charged with attempted murder after allegedly opening fire on two people in Costa Mesa and then leading cops on a wild car chase on June 20, 2016, as RadarOnline.com has reported.
Prosecutors charge that Waring allegedly shot and wounded Daniel Lopez, 35, outside a sober living home.
Waring reportedly got into a confrontation earlier that day with one of the residents.
He then returned to the home and allegedly shot Lopez, who miraculously survived his serious injuries.
Now Radar can reveal that new court papers about Waring state that in addition to allegedly slashing another inmate, in May, he supposedly tampered with a jail security device to create a disturbance.
For his part, Waring claims he has been the victim of “outrageous government conduct” and said his phone calls with his family were unlawfully monitored and recorded by Orange County Sheriff’s when he was first arrested in 2016.
As part of the affidavit, Sheriff’s investigators stated their concerns involving Waring and drugs.
In his declaration, Lee said Waring’s girlfriend, Hayley Pintek, was caught trying to smuggle heroin into the jail for Waring.
Pintek was arrested on May 8 and pleaded guilty to felony sale or transport of a controlled substance.
Sheriffs also arrested attorney Fergus Ginther on November 8, 2017 for allegedly attempting to give Waring meth while in jail.
Waring is now representing himself, according to his latest filing.
In his declaration, Lee said Waring has been disciplined at least 20 times for misconduct inside the Orange County jail and has been punished in various ways, including losing television privileges to a month in solitary confinement.
In a June 5 affidavit, Waring subpoenaed Orange County Sheriff’s officials to provide him with a list of phone numbers on his “do not record” phone call list.
However, attorneys representing the Orange County Sheriff’s said Waring’s request has nothing to do with his motion to dismiss his case and also would violate the rights of the individuals whose private phone numbers are included on the list.
The list that Waring is trying to get his hands on reportedly includes law enforcement, attorneys with the public defender’s office, members of the Orange County Bar Association, religious advisors and physicians.
While the phone numbers on the “do not call list” are not recorded, others, including Waring’s conversations in jail with his family, are recorded. Orange County Sheriff’s officials argue in the court docs that those calls do not fall under the attorney-client privilege and are recorded under jail policy.
“Producing a list of telephone numbers that are not recorded by law enforcement to any inmate in the jail, but specifically the Defendant (Waring), is dangerous…,” wrote Annie J. Loo, deputy county council for the Orange County Sheriffs Department in the affidavit.
“If the Defendant released the List to other inmates to it was stolen by other inmates, then the opportunities for abuse multiplies. … Moreover, the individuals privacy rights must be balanced against Defendant’s need for the information in defending himself against the charges in this case. As discussed above, the Defendant has not shown how the List is relevant to his case.”
Waring is scheduled to appear in court on June 26 to discuss his motion to dismiss the case, his subpoena for the phone records list, and the county council’s response to stop that subpoena.
As Radar previously reported, Waring was hit with divorce papers from his wife Hannah while he was in jail after allegedly threatening to stab her. She said in legal docs that they split up in March 2015.
Lil Kim is in danger of losing her New Jersey mansion.
The Blast website is reporting that she has serious money problems.
According to documents in Lil Kim’s bankruptcy she failed to make her June 1 mortgage payment of $10,155.47 on her mansion in Alpine, NJ.
The performer may have been letting the property fall into foreclosure, but once she filed for bankruptcy it halted all the proceedings.
However, creditors in the bankruptcy, wants to auction off the house and use the money to help pay off her debt.
Lil Kim filed for Chapter 13 bankruptcy last month with liabilities towering over $4,084,841.60 and assets in $2,573,300.
And to make matters worse se owes $1,845,451 in back taxes alone.
She stated she would pay $5,500 per month for 60 months that would total $330,000.
However, the creditors want to sell the home as it is worth around $2 million and would be offset against her debts.
The Teen Mom 2 star shocked fans with a new Q&A on her blog that revealed her love secrets.
Lowry, 26, says her split from Lopez, the father of her third son, baby Lux, almost one year old, was incredibly painful.
“I believe Lux’s dad was my first true love…I know, weird, when I had two kids with two other people,” the reality star said in her question and answer post.
Should her other baby daddies be insulted?
Lowry said of Lopez, her third baby dad, whom she’d split from before Lux was born, “This was my first REAL heartbreak, where I loved someone and was IN love with someone. And I felt so abandoned during such a vulnerable time.”
The Lopez breakup hit her particularly hard, Lowry confided to her followers.
“Breaking up with Isaac and Lincoln’s dads was upsetting because I felt like my kids lost the family aspect that I craved so badly for them. But this was different,” she noted.
Lowry also said her relationships with Marroquin and Rivera are now all about co-parenting.
“I talk to them if/when I see them and that’s the extent of my relationship with them,” she noted.
“I appreciate everything they do for my sons and I’m glad my sons are able to grow up knowing them. There’s no reason for a close relationship between them and myself.”
But Lowry also had a gay relationship and in an exclusive interview with RadarOnline.com, Lowry’s galpal Dominique Potter told all about her cheating scandal.
Substitute teacher Potter explained how Lowry cheated on her—and said the two had trust issues from the beginning!
“Nothing adds up with her,” Potter exclusively told Radar about Lowry.
Lowry and Potter’s relationship officially came to an end when the Teen Mom 2 star admitted over Twitter earlier this month that she had hooked up with her ex-husband Marroquin.
Potter contended to Radar that Lowry had cheated on her with Javi back in January when they were still in their seven-month relationship.
Lowry and Potter, 22, officially split in May.
The teacher also claimed that Lowry wanted a fourth child they could raise together.
That bikini looks way too formal to actually be worn with the intention of going into the water. It seems like the kind of swimsuit that I would see on a magazine cover or an ad, and think, “Why must they tempt my eyes with such beautiful fashion that I will never get to see in real life?” I made peace with the fact that all women in magazines are photoshopped to the point of perfection, but do those kinds of tactics really need to seep into clothing as well?
I remember the disappointment I had as a child after discovering that cowboys did not actually wear cowboy hats when they were out on the range. It turns out they really are not effective at keeping the sun off of your head because the wind just blows those felt frisbees off. That is right, Hollywood lied to us again.
Fortunately we have women like Stephanie Pratt who refuse to let certain bikinis remain as concept designs, unlike the car manufacturers who seem content to let the vehicles of the future always stay in the future. How hard is to put some of those cars into production? I am not expecting a flying car, just give me one with reliable Bluetooth access.

Bringing Up Bates star Josie Bates is engaged!
The reality TV cutie revealed the news on her Instagram account with a photo of herself and beau Kelton Balka posing in front of the beautiful red rocks of Utah at Arches National Park.
Josie, 18, captioned the shot, “I cannot wait to marry the love of my life. couldn’t have dreamed of a more sentimental engagement. Kelton put so much time into planning and making sure every little detail was perfect and it felt like a dream can’t wait to do forever with you, Babe .”
The big Bates family is known as a cooler version of the Duggars, and on Friday, Balka pulled off a wholesome proposal after leading Josie through a series of scavenger hunts, as UP TV revealed to In Touch.
“Kelton surprised Josie at her work, R&Co Salon in Knoxville, TN, with a bouquet of flowers and a charm bracelet that began a multi-part scavenger hunt,” the network said.
Then, with the help of Kelton’s father, Michael Balka, and her parents, Gil and Kelly Jo, Kelton took Josie on a trip to Utah!
“Each part of the four-part scavenger hunt represents a stage of Kelton and Josie’s relationship, and each part is accompanied by a new charm for her bracelet and a new location,” UP TV said.
“At the last stop, the Tower Arch Viewpoint at the Arches National Park, Kelton presents her with the most beautiful charm of all: a stunning engagement ring.”
Balka explained, “Josie always wanted to come out to Utah to see the amazing rocks, now she’s leaving with one on her finger.”
Reality TV star Josie gushed, “We are so excited to be engaged and take this next step in our story together.”
The two have been friends since 2014; two years later, it blossomed into romance.
The Bateses have strict courting rules like the Duggars and Josie and Balka started dating in January 2018.
This Thursday, Bringing Up Bates stars Tori Bates Smith and her husband Bobby had revealed the gender and name of their baby.
The couple will have a boy, whom they will name Robert Ellis Smith IV.
Tori got married last year with the Duggars at the wedding as guests.
Their characters may not have found happily ever after on Game of Thrones, but former costars Kit Harington and Rose Leslie found their real-life fairytale on Saturday when they said ‘I do.’ The couple wed in a romantic service at Scotland's Kirkton of Rayne Church. After the service, Harington and Leslie — who played lovers Jon Snow and Ygritte for a time on GoT — guided guests to nearby Wardhill Castle, which has been in Leslie’s family for around 900 years.
Although it has been rumored that Leslie didn’t want their nuptials to turn into a giant homage to the HBO show, GoT still made its way into the big day. You can’t exactly overlook the stunning GoT-like setting. Wardhill Castle remains in the care of Leslie’s father, Sebastian Arbuthnot-Leslie, who was on hand to walk his daughter down the aisle (in a kilt, no less!).
Plus, prior to the wedding the bride and groom reportedly used the Royal Mail’s limited run of Game of Thrones stamps for invitations. And, naturally, a slew of the couple’s GoT costars made the trip to Scotland to celebrate Harington and Leslie becoming husband-and-wife. Sophie Turner, Peter Dinklage, Maisie Williams and Emilia Clarke were all spotted in attendance.
Leslie beams in photos wearing a long-sleeved white lace dress with a wreath of flowers atop her head. Harington looks sharp as well, showing up for the service in a three-piece suit. If earlier intel proved accurate, a hooded monk presided over the ceremony.
of his favorite part of filming. “If you’re already attracted to someone, and then they play your love interest in the show, it becomes very easy to fall in love.”
Best wishes to the happy couple!
Ok, fair warning – the moment of impact isn’t shown by Inside Edition (via HuffPost). It’s understandable, because the victim of the Philly Phanatic’s hot dog blast is a lady who looks like everyone’s mom. If it was some just some 20-something douche, there would already be memes a’ plenty.
Kathy McVay was just sitting in the stands enjoying the game when she took a frank to the face shot from a hot dog-shaped cannon. (They don’t do stuff like this at Fenway Park. Normally, dudes just splash beer on each other and heckle the players. I think there’s a mascot?)
“It came down with such force, like a ton of bricks,” she told “Inside Edition.” “My glasses flew off, and I started bleeding.”
There are so many dick to face jokes here that shouldn’t be made at Kathy’s expense. Luckily, there was no concussion, but her face is going to be effed up-looking for a little while.
“Mostly, it’s going to get worse before it gets better,” she told WPVI-TV. “It’s going to go down the side of my face.”
And she has a good sense of humor.
“At least it’s funny,” McVay told NBC Philadelphia. “It’s a story I can tell people. My only thing is just to warn people just to be careful.”
Be careful of hot dogs shot at your face. Check. The Phillies apologized to Kathy and gave her free tickets to a future game. Hopefully, that came with a catcher’s mask specially designed to deflect meat.
If you woke up panicked this morning that your smoke alarm was going off, or that two angry alley cats were making sweet, angry alley cat love under your bedroom window: RELAX. It was just Sally Field scream-crying because Maria Shriver achieved what Sally could not: the successful pairing of her beloved offspring to a celebrity.
“A source tells PEOPLE the actor, who turned 39 on Thursday, has been on “multiple dates” with the eldest daughter of Arnold Schwarzenegger and Maria Shriver. In fact, Shriver, 62, played matchmaker! “Maria helped set them up,” the source says, adding, “It’s still new.”
No word on how Maria and Chris know each other, but I’m speculating that based on her son Patrick’s dating history (see Taylor Swift, Miley Cyrus and – fingers crossed! – Taylor Lautner), Mama Bear Maria is trying to pick her kids’ main boos from now on to avoid future family (Kennedy AND Schwarzenegger) scandals (too many to link).
Let’s review the cold
hard bland facts. Katherine is 28, so there’s only a ten year age difference, which isn’t huge in Hollywood-land. Chris and ex-wife Anna Farris appear to be having a pretty amicable split, and the “appropriate” amount of alone time (about ten months) has passed. Both Chris and Katherine are in to charitable work – she’s focused on animal welfare and has written a children’s book about her dog, while he is a no attention seeking do-gooder with a laundry list of do-gooder causes.
Based on the lack of juicy gossip swirling around this latest celebrity – YAWN – pairing, I’m more excited to know about these tantalizing facts, also provided by People:
During their lunch date, they shared sandwiches, potato chips and apples on a park bench and were seen smiling and laughing.
What kind of sandwiches?! Po’ Boy, hummus wraps, banana & peanut butter? What kind of potato chips?! Biscuits & Gravy, Ketchup, Dill Pickle? And for the love of God, WHAT KIND OF APPLES?! Granny Smith, Pink Lady, Gravenstein? What a cliff hanger! Stay tuned for more exciting exclusives of late breaking food news.
Oh, Miranda Hobbes. You were the unsung heroine and frequent possessor of the short end of the stick on the late, not-exactly-lamented-due-to-those-two-SHITTAY-movies Sex and the City. (Don’t give me that. That show had the best series finale in TV history. Everyone got a happy ending and Carrie got slapped. I kid! Sort of. There was absolutely no need for those flicks.) Seriously, Cynthia Nixon was the best actress on that show and she usually had to contend with storylines like dudes in sandwich costumes trying to fuck her.
Nevertheless, the acclaimed actress of stage and screen (who already had two kids) went on to become a wife (to a wife), had another kid, beat breast cancer, and is now running for governor of New York! One of Cynthia’s platforms is LGBTQ rights, and she celebrated her 21-year-old transgender son Seph’s (Samuel Joseph Mozes) graduation from the University of Chicago on Instagram.
Cynthia posted on the Trans Day Of Action supporting transgender and non-gender conforming people and their allies every year. Hopefully, Seph and his mom avoid reading the comments, because wow, people are assholes. And this is coming from a HUGE asshole who is a big asshole to celebrities on the weekends. But there are levels of asshole, right? At least that’s what I plead to my therapist.
People reports that Cynthia has two kids, Seph and brother Charles Ezekiel, 15, with her ex-husband Danny Mozes. And she’s also mom to her youngest son, Max Ellington, 7, with wife Christine Marinoni (aka Rojo Caliente!!!).
All this big life stuff AND Cynthia had to deal with how her SATC co-star and friend Kim Cattrall publicly revealing her hatred for her other SATC co-star and friend Sarah Jessica Parker might affect her future gubernatorial campaign! After all, her opponent Andrew Cuomo could always point out how odd it is to remain friends with SJP after Samantha Jones revealed her as conniving and evil. He could say “I mean, Samantha was the best character on the damn show and everyone knows that SJP is evil. Did you see Divorce? That shit was awful. Who would inflict that on anyone? Evil! Vote Cuomo!”
Posting for Dlisted can often be an educational experience. Before my time here, concepts like lucite heels, the importance of the British Royals and dickmatization were all foreign to me (ok, that last one wasn’t).
As an example, the punctuation known as “question mark” settled upon my frontal lobe when the word “shiplap” came up in reference to former Fixer Upper hosts Chip Gaines, 43, and his possibly-unfamiliar-with-how-the-U.S.-legal-system-works wife Joanna Gaines, 39, having their fifth kid. The fuck is shiplap, I asked? And then I had to educate myself about distressed wood, picture frames that old-timey ship captains might like and really big clocks. And I learned that “shiplap” are those gray planks that have been out in the sun and then tortured by a sander for some rich asshole’s summer cottage. These two live on a dock near a fake eucalyptus grove, right? My education was furthered by learning the Joanna might be displeased with me being married to a large, hairy man who knows computers and likes showtunes and pizza. Well, eff these two and their ugly stuff!
By the way, Joanna had their fifth kid and it’s a boy, according to People. Gotta get the news in there somewhere. Toothy Chip announced the birth via Twitter Bird.
And then there were 5.. The Gaines crew is now 1 stronger! 10 beautiful toes and 10 beautiful fingers all accounted for, and big momma is doing great! #blessedBeyondBelief
— Chip Gaines (@chipgaines) June 23, 2018
Their unnamed tot (May I suggest “Shiplap Gaines?” Or just call it quits on the down-to-earth act and call the kid “Magnolia,” for branding purposes.) joins his already in progress siblings Emmie Kay, 8, Duke, 9, Ella, 11, and Drake, 13 in their purely decorative manteled palace in Waco, TX.
If you walk into any Tarjhay nowadays, the ground zero of their Home Decor section has a big metal triangle frame marking off and hovering over a fuckload of brass objet, artificial greenery and mini-barn doors to hang over your toilet. That’s Chip and Joanna’s Hearth & Hand With Magnolia line and it’s set up so you think that Jesus himself blessed Target with a store within a store. And none of it’s any different than the shit you could buy at Target before, except it’s pricier, because these two and their blinding veneers put their name on it.
Congrats on your fifth kid, but it makes me miss Paige Davis’ “Prison of Love” bedroom. THAT was style AND class.
Hello, fellow Dlisted-ers! I’m Jovi, reporting from Seattle, WA. Where I spend most of my time staring at the mailbox waiting for a magical letter confirming that I am the dumpster lust baby conceived by Jerri Blank and Laird at the Flatpoint High “Make Out Dance.” The other 20 minutes of my day, I enjoy sitting on the front porch, critiquing the Grunge Revivalists that pass by, wiping away tears of nostalgia and sighing about how easy it is to buy pre-ripped jeans and flannel shirts now. We really had to thrift hard for that shit back in the day. Anyway, enough curmudgeonry, let the antics begin!
Poor Madonna has probably been feeling a bit “True Blue” lately, as she hasn’t had any viable press or felt “Cherished” since the Met Gala six weeks ago, so she decided to throw a little “Ray of Light” on herself (luckily, that’s all I’ve got). Well, Madge got the attention she craved this morning, but not entirely the kind she had in mind.
According to NewNowNext, on Friday June 22nd, Madonna posted a photoshopped still from Beyonce and Jay-Z‘s new single “Apes**t” from their new Everything Is Love album released as “The Carters” (not to be confused with the OG hot as fuck singing Carter “Mother“ Maybelle). Instead of precious works of art from the Louvre, Beyonce and J are seen gazing in awe at a sampling of Madonna’s record covers. It’s not just the photo, but the accompanying quote that has the BeyHive passing kidney stones this morning. On her Twitter page, Madge wrote:
Oh, boy. Along with approximately 1,873,466 bumblebee emojis for having implied that not everything Bey and J touches is fresh, sparkling clean and brand new, Madge got called out for being racist. I feel this tweet from @JUSLIKEMIKE863 pretty much sums up The Hive’s (and many mortal human’s) thoughts:
“I imagine one of the reasons people cling to their hate so stubbornly is because they sense, once hate is gone, they will be forced to deal with pain.”
These two love-trolls. Yes, your instantaneous happiness and boundless enthusiasm for showing off your romance for the ages, while you publicly add block and upon block to your Jenga tower of bliss, irritates the cynical. Pete Davidson is a comedian, so he obviously likes to clown on people. And Ariana Grande licks donuts and hates America, which means she’s obviously down for psychologically torturing the masses. So why not keep tormenting the pessimists out there, right?
Please note that Jenga tower analogy… BECAUSE THIS WILL FALL. IT WILL FALL. Oh, and Ariana let it “slip” (*side-eye*) that Pete’s two inches short of a foot in the pants area. By that, I mean she’s claiming he’s got a ten inch cock. Cut to Michael K adjusting his new high ponytail weave and donning a big sweatshirt with no pants, in order to replace Ariana in Pete’s
Twitter user ginagrande_ (via ONTD) posted some tweets between Ariana and a fan about a “Pete interlude” on her upcoming album
Splenda, Sweetener. Someone made the mistake of asking about the length of this interlude. Prepare to tee-hee!
SHE FUCKIN DIDN’T pic.twitter.com/AH84VeQQzi
— gina (@ginagrande_) June 22, 2018
She fuckin’ did! Either that, or her betrothed is insecure and has her Twitter password. He’s probably got it tattooed on his ballsack to join the other Ariana-themed ink continuing to congregate on his body.
In other Ariana/Pete news, she’s not pregnant but is definitely feelin’ fecund.
— claudia (@tearsbuteras) June 22, 2018
And we also learned from Ariana’s Instagram, (via ONTD) that being the world’s #1 Ariana Grande fan means Pete Davidson gets his own personal Ariana Grande mini-concerts from atop of that alleged 10 inch dick!

So that’s a photo shoot in progress, right? Or do the High Pony Hangers-On have to hang out and get caught in the deluge of sickly sweet love love love emanating from these two? Hopefully, Pete passes the bong, because how else to deal with being in the same room as that?
Venetia, the new Roomba Cat! Or technically, the new Neato Cat!
There’s been the Roomba Cat in a shark costume, Roomba Cat in a Princess Jasmine costume, the dog-swatting Roomba Cat, and most recently, the masterful ninja cat who gracefully sent a nosy Roomba on its way to deal with some shit. But they may have been shown up by Venetia. While all of those Roomba Cats bring the laughs, Venetia will tug on your heart strings so hard they’ll snap and break. I thought my heart strings had blackened, corroded and fell off a long time ago. But nope, I felt them a’tuggin’ while watching this little video.
Lisa Krakosky, a pet foster mom, posted a video of one of her foster cats, Venetia, ruling the land while riding on a motorized chariot. Life has been shit to 7-year-old Venetia. She’s blind, deaf, toothless, and was left for dead on the street by a human who is more useless and disgusting than a tonsil stone. Lisa writes on Instagram that Venetia may be blind, but she’s figured out how to turn on the family’s Neato (the Michelle to Roomba’s Beyonce, I guess), and joys fills her up as she rides it around the house.
Recently our blind and deaf resident cat Venetia has become enamored with our @neatorobotics vacuum. No matter how many soft blankets and beds we offer her, she prefers to sit on and sprawl out on Neato. Despite it requiring two pushes of the button to turn Neato on, she has taken several joyrides on Neato
Whenever you begin to think that every inch of this world is covered in ugliness, think of Venetia on a Neato.

Queen Venetia of the Neatos should really direct her chariot into another room before she loses her sense of smell thanks to that row of pussy toilets.
It may seem like Venetia is just having a simple little joyride, but that’s not what’s going on. Venetia is training that robot. She’s training it to be her war tank for when she goes back out onto the streets to get revenge on the evil piece of trash demon who abandoned her. Daredevil, who?!

You know, I make a lot of jokes about wanting Logan Paul to die, and I just want to make it clear because I think he’s a bad person who actively makes the world worse just by existing and I legitimately wish he were dead. So I was disappointed to find out that the boxing match he’s hyping is just against another guy from YouTube and not a legitimate boxer who could do some real harm to him. Let’s put Logan Paul in the ring with Gennady Golovkin for 12 rounds, I’ll bet he could give Paul a CTI by the end of the night.
Earlier this year KSI, author of the aptly-named biography I Am A Bellend, had an amateur boxing match against YouTuber Joe Weller. After winning the match KSI then said he wanted to fight Logan and Jake Paul. Jake Paul will be fighting KSI’s younger brother Deji Olatunji at the same event Logan fights KSI, for which tickets went on sale today.

Even PewDiePie thinks this is going to be a waste of time, noting that while we’re going to get to see one of these idiots get beat up, the other one is just going to walk away even more insufferable than they are now.
“The thing is, you want to see one of them getting beaten up, getting punched up, right? But the thing is everyone loses in this fight. One person will get punched, but the other person’s ego will get so massively boosted that it immediately cancels itself out, and it’s just not worth it. So in the fight KSI vs Logan Paul, we all lose.”
It’s true, these two morons have been hyping their fight for weeks like a bad WWE pay-per-view, even before their idiotic press conference.
The two ran into each other in a night club last week and got into the worst worked fight promo I’ve seen since the time Brian Pillman pretended to murder his former tag team partner Steve Austin.
Oh my god it hurts! It hurts my soul. They’re doing their best to pretend this is real, but these guys are not exactly Ric Flair at the mic, which is doubly hilarious because they’re presumably professional actors and entertainers.
Yeah, I believe Logan Paul “hates the kid.” Tickets to this fight, which is going to be terrible, are $600 each. It’s like a practical joke that these idiot are playing on the public. “Hey, we know you hate us, so give us a huge payday to watch us hit each other not very hard!” I almost want to congratulate them for so successfully monetizing being the worst people in the world.

One of the biggest talking points from conservatives who approve of Donald Trump’s “zero tolerance” immigration policy that has had the side effect of tearing minor children away from their parents and putting them into cages and camps has been “Well, if you care so much about these kids, why don’t you take them in?” This argument makes sense in their minds because they’re actually afraid of children who speak Spanish for some reason (hint: the reason is racism).
Well, Trump critic Alyssa Milano is doing exactly that, which should shut people up for… I don’t know, ten seconds until they start saying something about MS-13. The New York Post obtained a copy of a letter Milano sent to Cayuga Centers, a New York foster care agency that has taken in some of the children of asylum seekers who were forcefully separated from their parents.
“Based on New York City news reports detailing a covert, dark-of-night transport of children it appears your organization has stepped up to temporarily care for these poor souls. I, along with others — while fervently against the White House policy that put these children in your care — acknowledge your efforts,” wrote Milano, 45.
“With this, I write to offer my assistance. Like many people touched by this tragedy, I have thought about ways I can help,” she added. “As a mother, I know that children need to be reunited with their parents in the United States more than anything.”
Milano went on to offer to temporarily house some of these children until they can be reunited with their parents, and to help them petition to stay in the country. She ended her letter with “Mi casa es la casa de ellos,” Spanish for my home is their home. It’s a really nice gesture as long as she doesn’t invite Tony Danza over to entertain them; those poor kids have suffered enough.

Shakira, the best-selling Spanish Language singer of all time, has just started off on her sixth world tour in support of her new album, El Dorado. And of course, a concert tour means concert tour merchandise. You can buy all sorts of t-shirts and jewelry and whatnot when you go to see Shakira sing, or you can get it on her website.
Of course, some people thought that one of the necklaces included some hidden Nazi symbolism, the implication being that Shakira is a Nazi. Now, I don’t know all of the ins and outs about who the Nazis hate, but I’m pretty sure Spanish-speakers and Colombians are at the top of the list. The Nazis certainly do seem happy about those kids being ripped from their parents at the border, at any rate.
Dear @shakira, you know that your necklace depicts an important Nazi symbol, propagated by the SS during the Nazi era? It was so popular that Himmler incorporated it into a floor of the Wewelsburg Castle to establish it as the "center of the New World ". https://t.co/00Bfy1Tywm pic.twitter.com/2m0hldq0w9
— MaMika* (@Mamika_do) June 20, 2018
Just so we’re clear here, this isn’t a case of a random symbol looking a bit like a Nazi symbol, this is the exact symbol Nazi occultists used. It is kind of an obscure symbol, but it’s too specific to be a coincidence. At the same time, I don’t think Shakira is secretly a Nazi. But I do have a theory about how this happened.
El Dorado is the legendary lost city of gold, based on the story of a mythical Colombian tribal chief. Mezoamerican mythology associates the black sun with the god Quetzalcoatl, but it doesn’t use the same black sun symbol the Nazis used. It’s possible, and even likely, that someone looking for symbols from Mezoamerican mythology just got the wrong black sun.
I mean, either that or Shakira is a Nazi. I’m sure no one actually thinks that, though.

Luka Doncic was the talk of the town leading up to the NBA Draft on Thursday night. He’s thought to be the next great European player, with some believing he could surpass Dirk Nowitzki as the greatest European player of all-time.
We won’t have that answer for another 15 years or so. What we do have an answer to is how good his mom was looking at the draft.

No, that’s not his girlfriend giving him a big hug and a kiss on the cheek. That’s his mom. Her name is Mirjam Poterbin and she was a dancer and model before owning her own beauty shop. She was also the real number one overall pick on Thursday.
Luka’s mom caught the attention of every basketball fan on Twitter, including three-time NBA champion Andre Iguodala.

I’d say Iguodala is underselling Doncic’s mom, but he’s a married man, so he has to watch himself. Other twitter users aren’t so married. Or their wife doesn’t check their social media.

Kim Kardashian is no longer in the selfie business.
In a new interview with The Morning UK, Kardashian said she doesn’t have time to take selfies anymore.
“I just, like, kind of moved on, it’s not all about sitting there and taking selfies. I just would like to live in real time a little more.”
While Mrs. West may claim to be done with selfies, her Snapchat and Instagram beg to differ.
She even posted how to take the perfect selfie on Thursday, which happened to be #NationalSelfieDay.
For a woman who released a book of personal selfies (yes, this is a real thing that exists) and claimed to take the first selfie ever in 1984 when she was 4, it’s tough to believe she can just quit selfies cold turkey.
She’s going to need at least a year in selfie rehab. That’s how bad her addiction is.
Then again, who needs to take a selfie when you have a makeup team and photog on call at all times?

Mariah Carey may have decent royalty checks from all ‘dem hits. But she really missed her pot of gold by not hopping in a cab to the trademark office to file a patent for “I don’t know her” immediately after pretending she had no damn clue what a Jennifer Lopez was. If there’s a go-to for celebrity shade, it’s pretending like you know some A-lister about as well as you do someone in suburban Boise who has downloaded all your albums eighteen times on Limewire. Andy Cohen and Martha Stewart have employed the IDKH method, and now Lil’ Kim is revving up her Nicki Minaj feud by pretending to have no idea who the voice behind “Anaconda” is. Hiss hiss, you sneaky snake!
Entertainment Tonight’s Katie Krause caught up with Lil’ Kim on Wednesday night at an event, and asked Kim what she thought of the new crop of female rappers like Cardi B and Nicki Minaj. Kim begins to gush about Cardi, but not before she quickly slid in an “…and I don’t know the other one.”
Oooh, that could have almost been a respectable read to singe everyone’s eyebrows off had it not come while Kim was waiting to get into the launch of Paris Hilton’s new line of whatever. Anyway, I’m beginning to think that “I don’t know her” bit is getting a tad stale for my liking. Call me when one of these chicks has the balls to say, “I do know her, and she’s as enjoyable as a hemorrhoid!”
I was on Sudafed for much of Thursday, and before I walked away from the internet for a few hours, I saw that Melania Trump had gone on a surprise visit to a Texas border town to do or say something about the fact that her husband’s administration has stolen 2300-plus children and babies and put those children in cages. My thought, at the time, was “what kind of dumbass White House would send the First Lady to offer some half-assed, bullsh-t assistance to the children that her husband has been terrorizing for weeks?” As it turns out, that wasn’t the worst part. I only saw the worst part hours later, once my Sudafed high had worn down. This was the worst part:
Melania Trump wears $39 jacket with 'I REALLY DON'T CARE, DO U?' to visit immigrant children at the border https://t.co/GrvF9zZtV0
— Daily Mail US (@DailyMail) June 21, 2018
Yes. Melania Trump, First Lady of the United States of America, traveled to see the caged babies with her own eyes while wearing a “I Really Don’t Care, DO U?” jacket. Yes. That really f–king happened. It’s not fake news, it’s not a doctored photo. Melania’s spokeswoman event confirmed that Melania wore that jacket, and this was the OFFICIAL STATEMENT FROM THE FLOTUS OFFICE: “It’s a jacket. There was no hidden message. After today’s important visit to Texas, I hope the media isn’t going to choose to focus on her wardrobe.” Are you joking? As for what actually went down during her visit, she swanned around and wished “good luck” to the children in cages.
According to White House pool reports, Mrs. Trump toured two facilities run by the Department of Homeland Security during her trip to McAllen — the Ursula Border Patrol Processing Center, a Customs and Border Patrol intake center, and Upbring New Hope Children’s Shelter, a Health and Human Services grantee facility that currently houses about 60 kids (ages 5-17, though mostly teens) from Honduras and El Salvador.
Mrs. Trump spent a little over an hour with 55 children, most of whom were from Guatemala, at the Upbring New Hope Children’s Shelter. All but six of the children were unaccompanied minors, with the rest having been separated from their families, according to pool reports. She asked the children questions such as: “How long are you here?” “Where are you from?” and “Are you all friends?” As she left one classroom, she told the children, “Bye. Good luck.”
“Good luck.” Good luck with that, you heartless bitch. Add to all of that… Melania Trump is a g-ddamn immigrant. She came to this country on a temporary visa and reportedly she didn’t follow all of the immigration laws either. She really doesn’t care. DO U?

What are the rules for gossiping about someone’s past actions when that someone has one foot in the funeral pyre? I’m not asking that to be nasty at all, I really don’t know the rule. Like, former president George HW Bush deserved to be called out and held to some kind of account for repeatedly assaulting multiple women, even though his health is failing and he’s been in a wheelchair for years. But what if a dude is in failing health and he has a history of fooling around with consenting adults? This is my question.
For those people who think The Crown is 100% real, it might come as a surprise that Prince Philip has always been a well-known cheater. He’s had multiple affairs, multiple mistresses, multiple hookups throughout his marriage to Queen Elizabeth. The affairs were barely hidden – everyone knew about them, but most of them happened when the British press wouldn’t or couldn’t write about them. When the British media’s relationship with the royal family shifted in the 1980s and 1990s, lots of skeletons fell out and of course Philip’s wandering eye was written about back then. It just seems to me that we don’t have to dredge up all of that sh-t – sh-t that royalists and royal-watchers have known for decades – right now, when Philip’s health is struggling. But that’s what Lady Colin Campbell is doing. From Dan Wooten’s column in The Sun:
Lady Colin Campbell is preparing to rock the Royal Family yet again with bombshell allegations about the Queen’s marriage. I can reveal the royal author turned I’m A Celebrity contestant has booked a press conference for Thursday, June 28, where she intends to reveal for the first time the contents of her bombshell new book in front of the world’s Press. Speculation is mounting that The Queen’s Marriage will include new cheating claims about PRINCE PHILIP, especially surrounding his close friendship with LADY PENELOPE BRABOURNE, the new COUNTESS MOUNTBATTEN.
Lady C has long been the scourge of the royal establishment, with her 1992 biography on PRINCESS DIANA, Diana In Private, revealing for the first time just how unhappy she was in her marriage to PRINCE CHARLES. Lady C was dismissed as a fantasist but her revelations about Di’s bulimia and affair with JAMES HEWITT turned out to be true. Now questions are being asked, given the age of the Duke of Edinburgh, who turned 97 this month, whether the publication of this book is appropriate.
In an exclusive interview, she says of the press conference: “I’m absolutely dreading it. Writing the truth has so far proven to be a very discomforting experience, and I only hope that our society has progressed to the stage where one can finally speak the truth without being lambasted. I always just write the truth and let the chips fall where they may. And all of historical characters, their private lives impact their public lives as well, and it is fair game for examination.”
Lady C insists she is fond of both Prince Philip and the Queen and denies the book will sensationalise any cheating claims. She says: “The way they have made their marriage work as a partnership for the good, not only of this country, but of the Commonwealth and some would say of the world. I focus very much on the realities of their lives and what the realities are all about. Of course, one also has to examine rumours and deal with speculation but I’m very fortunate in that I know people very close to them. You know, friends of mine for nearly 50 years are very close friends of various of the participants, so I know exactly what has really gone on.”
While some of the names of Philip’s old mistresses might be new (to me, at least), I have to ask: who didn’t already know that Philip was a giant cheater for years? The young ones, I guess, the ones who weren’t around for the shift in how the British royal family was treated in the media. And I do agree with Lady Colin about one thing: the larger story is about Elizabeth and Philip’s marriage, how they had ups and downs and rough patches and they still sort of adore each other. They’ve always been 100% committed to the monarchy. Philip just wasn’t always completely committed to Elizabeth.
A few days ago, we got a tip and the scans of Johnny Depp’s Rolling Stone interview. I wanted to wait until RS put the piece online, because I honestly don’t care about Depp enough to spend the time to transcribe this mess. Apparently, Depp spent 72 hours with the RS journalist, bingeing on wine and smoking joints. The Rolling Stone writer doesn’t sugarcoat it at all: Depp was barely lucid for large chunks of the interview. I don’t want to hype this up too much, but this is one of the craziest f–king celebrity profiles I’ve ever read in my life. If you have some time, please read the full piece, and you will end up gasping at least twice.
The first time I gasped at this piece was when the writer didn’t pull his punches about this being Johnny Depp’s “last days.” Depp is described as “alternately hilarious, sly and incoherent.” Depp has a “scared, hunted look about him.” He stays up all night, drinking wine and smoking pot, then sleeps all day. His vibe is described as “a boyish insouciance has slowly morphed into an aging man-child, still charismatic but only in glimpses. If his current life isn’t a perfect copy of Elvis Presley’s last days, it is a decent facsimile.”
Depp is a man who has reportedly made $650 million over the course of his career, and he’s lost almost all of it, which is why Depp agreed to do this piece. No, I’m saying that the wrong way – Depp didn’t agree to Rolling Stone’s request. His “lawyer” Adam Waldman contacted RS and asked if they’d like to do an interview with Depp so that Depp could set the record straight about his dueling lawsuits with his ex-managers. Rolling Stone did a cursory investigation into who Waldman really is, and this is what they found:
Waldman made it clear he was doing an end-run without the involvement of Robin Baum, Depp’s formidable publicist of many years. I started looking into the case and Waldman to see if he was legit. There was stuff about him being Cher’s lawyer – the singer is godmother to his daughter Pepper – but the first hit was a Business Insider story that read “Here Are the American Executives Who Are Working on Behalf of Putin.” Waldman was the first on the list, which detailed his service for Oleg Deripaska, an aluminum magnate and Russian oligarch with strong ties to the Russian president.
According to Business Insider, Waldman has been paid more than $2.3 million for his work on behalf of Deripaska. Meanwhile, Deripaska became a bit player in the Russian-collusion scandal when it was reported by The Washington Post that then-Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort offered to give Deripaska private briefings on the campaign shortly before the GOP convention. Waldman had his own cameo in the Putin-Trump meshugas. In February, none other than Trump would accuse him in a typically factually distorted tweet – without naming him – of trying to broker a meeting between Trump-dossier writer Christopher Steele and Democratic Sen. Mark Warner. In April, Deripaska was placed on Trump’s sanctioned list, making it exceedingly difficult for Deripaska’s holdings to do business in the United States.
Waldman joined the game in October 2016, having been told by a client that Depp needed help. TMG had just slapped the foreclosure notice on his L.A. homes for failure to make payments on a $5 million loan from the company. TMG had filed it as a nonjudicial foreclosure so there were no public filings. The public at this point had no idea of Depp’s financial situation. Waldman was about to change that. He says he joined Depp for dinner at the Bel Air home of Ed White, Depp’s new accountant. Waldman says that White mentioned that he believed TMG had taken a cavalier approach to Depp’s accounts. Waldman listened closely and said he’d investigate the situation. Waldman and Depp quickly became compadres. When Waldman would find a friend he thought was on the Mandels’ side, he’d call the star and just say, “Tessio,” after the Abe Vigoda character who betrays the Corleones in The Godfather. Depp instantly understood and would mutter back, “F–king Tessio.”
So, that was my second gasp – Depp is in bed with one of Putin’s American agents, basically. Maybe Robert Mueller should expand the investigation? This would explain why The Hollywood Vampires were doing shows all over Russia too. Isn’t it a typical Russian-mob tactic to latch onto someone on the downswing and bleed that person completely dry? That’s what this feels like. Anyway, the rest of the article is full of dumb Depp sh-t, like Depp finding Don Rickles’ racist jokes really funny, and how he really feels about Harvey Weinstein (Depp saw Weinstein be nice to his child once, so, you know) and how Depp really does have someone on staff full-time to read him his lines through an earpiece.
What else? He doesn’t talk about Amber Heard directly, because they both have non-disclosure agreements as part of their divorce. He does say that after the divorce, “I was as low as I believe I could have gotten…” and then talks about how that time in his life was so bad that he was just pouring himself glasses of vodka to drink while he wept and wrote. To be clear, he wasn’t just upset about Amber, he’s also this upset about his money. This whole thing is such a giant mess.
Maybe I’m completely wrong about this, but I don’t really believe that Melania Trump’s awful jacket was some kind of next-level media game to distract from “the real story.” This is ALL the real story: the Trumps are heartless psychopaths and everyone who has a role in this administration belongs in jail for child abuse, human rights violations and treason. That being said, I am aware that every moment we spend talking about Melania’s psycho wardrobe choices is a moment we aren’t asking where the federal government has put the migrant girls they stole.
Throughout this awful week, no one in the White House has been on the same message. The right hand doesn’t know what the fascist hand is doing, and considering they can’t even get their LIES straight, why does anyone think that there’s some Nazi at the top, pulling all the strings? Anyway, here are some stories I just wanted to put in front of everyone’s eyes. First off, Trump thinks a “Red Wave” is coming in the mid-terms:
Republicans should stop wasting their time on Immigration until after we elect more Senators and Congressmen/women in November. Dems are just playing games, have no intention of doing anything to solves this decades old problem. We can pass great legislation after the Red Wave!

Meanwhile, there is still a sizeable segment of the population who really and truly believe that the media hired “crisis actors” and that what is happening with the caged children is not some kind of rise of a fascist regime which puts children in cages. Those people get their news from Sinclair Broadcasting and Fox News. Sinclair made their local news affiliates run pieces about how the caged-children story was totally overblown:
The Sinclair Broadcasting Group regularly forces its 193 local stations to push conservative, pro-Trump messages.

And finally, Stephen Miller – the dead-eyed Nazi who formed the caged-children policy – also enjoys eating Mexican food. He got heckled too. Now THIS is a stunt.

As we discussed earlier this week, Kim Kardashian wore Fulani braids to the MTV Movie and TV Awards, which aired on Monday night. I said that she was culturally appropriating because that’s exactly what she was doing. She does it all the time. She did it earlier this year when she had blonde hair and she claimed, at the time, that the braids were “Bo Derek braids,” like it’s not enough she’s appropriating black women but she actually has to go out of her way to give credit to a white woman for the braided hairstyle. To be honest, I think Kim would still be called out for appropriation even if she came out every time and said “I love these traditionally black-culture braids.” The thing is, she never does that. Kim chatted with Bustle this week and they asked her about the braids and cultural appropriation. Her answer was not good.
Why she wore braids to the MTV Awards: “I actually didn’t see backlash. I actually did that look because North said she wanted braids and asked if I would do them with her. So we braided her hair and then we braided my hair,” Kardashian West explains. North West, Kardashian West’s 5-year-old daughter, has naturally curly hair and is often spotted wearing them natural or in braids. It’s clear that Kardashian West supports and celebrates her daughter’s natural, biracial hair and it also makes sense that North would ask her mom to match her hairdo.
The backlash on “Bo Derek braid”: “I [do] remember the backlash when I had the blonde hair and that I called them ‘Bo Derek braids.’ But I obviously know they’re called fulani braids and I know the origin of where they came from and I’m totally respectful of that. I’m not tone deaf to where I don’t get it. I do get it,” Kardashian West says. When the mother of three wears her hair in braids, she claims she wears them in honor and with respect of the culture who originated the style — the Fula people from West Africa and the Sahel Region — and at the very least, to celebrate her daughter’s hair.
She means no disrespect: “Maybe if I had come out and explained that from the beginning instead of calling them ‘Bo Derek braids,’ then it wouldn’t have gotten such backlash. But in no way am I ever trying to disrespect anyone’s culture by wearing braids. If anything, my daughter was so excited to see me get matching braids with her. [When] we did her hair in these braids, she was so excited.”
Honestly, she’s full of it. I remember the “Bo Derek braids” controversy, since it was just in January/February of this year. It’s wasn’t JUST that she called them “Bo Derek braids,” it’s that when people were like “appropriating bitch please,” she got nasty about it and started posting more photos of the braids and saying she didn’t give a f–k about the “haters.” If she knew they were called fulani braids, why didn’t she just call them that in the first place? And it’s not like this sh-t started this year, and it’s not like this is the first time Kim and her sisters have stolen something from black culture and then passed it off as something they invented.
Also: it makes me uncomfortable to see her using North as a shield from criticism. Yes, North is a mixed race girl and she will continue to be curious about braids and different kinds of hairstyles. Kim has every right to educate her daughter and allow North to experiment with her hair and all of that. But the answer to every criticism that Kim faces should not be “but my daughter wanted it, that’s why I did it!”
One week ago, Chloe Dykstra published her Me Too essay on Medium. She described her toxic, abusive relationship with an unnamed older man, a man everyone knew was Chris Hardwick. Hardwick released a statement last weekend which was basically like “as a future father, I would never abuse a woman but Chloe cheated on me.” It was seen by many as yet another attempt to gaslight Chloe. Hardwick’s various shows and appearances were either canceled or put on pause while everyone reassessed in the wake of Dykstra’s essay. Hardwick tried to “prove” that he wasn’t an abusive, toxic douche by giving some of Dykstra’s old texts to TMZ, which was another awful move. The Wrap did a story about how most of Hardwick’s current and former coworkers believe Chloe’s claims and that Hardwick was a douchebag to work for and with.
The latest act of the Make Hardwick Great Again comeback is a statement from his wife, Lydia Hearst. Lydia is 33 years old (Hardwick is 46) and they got married in 2016 and sold/gave (?) the photos to People Magazine. Lydia wants you to know that she doesn’t believe Chloe Dykstra.
Lydia Hearst has broken her silence about the allegations surrounding her husband Chris Hardwick.
“This is not a statement in defense, this is a statement of defense,” Hearst tells PEOPLE in an exclusive statement. “Defense for all the women who have been sexually abused, raped, trafficked, and tortured; defense of all the people who this movement was started for. Over the last year the #MeToo movement has rightly aimed a spotlight directly on women whose stories needed to be told. As someone who has been involved in toxic relationships in the past, I know first hand the importance of sharing these stories and do not take this situation lightly.”
“I have made the decision to come out in support of my husband not out of obligation, but out of necessity to speak the truth about the person I know. Chris is nothing but loving and compassionate and is the only person who has stood by me, never judged me, helped me heal, and feel whole. To defend my husband would be giving credence to any of these accusations. I will not do that. Chris Hardwick is a good man,” she adds. “I remain in complete support of my husband, and I believe that the truth will always win. #TimesUp because I know my truth and I believe in due process.”
I go back and forth on a lot of this stuff when it involves the wife/girlfriend of someone being accused of being a predator or abuser. There’s a lot of “she should have known” which just reads to me like people are trying too hard to blame a woman for a man’s abuse. Who knows what Lydia Hearst knows, and she’s not responsible for what her husband did or did not do before they were even together. All that being said, her statement made me angry – it’s one thing to not say anything, it’s one thing to say “I choose to believe my husband.” She’s going with “he never abused ME, therefore he could never abuse ANYONE.” And that’s awful.
Chloe also released a statement a few days ago too:
Thank you all, from the bottom of my heart. pic.twitter.com/giXmp2wb9V

This is just something lighter so we don’t get so depressed with all the fascism. It really does feel like Queen Elizabeth has a new BFF in the Duchess of Sussex. The Queen just won’t stop making plans with Meghan! Protocol be damned, the Queen wants to go on a girls’ trip! She wants to show Meghan the Corgi Lyfe. So yes, the Queen invited Prince Harry and Meghan to Buckingham Palace next week:
Newlyweds Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have a growing roster of royal outings planned leading up to their first official royal tour Down Under! On the heels of the Duchess of Sussex’s first solo outing with the Queen, she’ll be stepping out with her grandmother-in-law once again for a special Queen’s Young Leaders reception at Buckingham Palace on Tuesday (June 26). And this time the 36-year-old will have her husband by her side.
The Queen’s Young Leaders program is made up of 240 award winners from Britain and the Commonwealth countries, all of whom are being recognized for their service to country and community. Prince Harry was named the new Commonwealth Youth Ambassador, and it’s widely believed that Meghan will share the title too, that she’ll be given some kind of similar title. Basically, the Queen just wants Meghan at all of her events now. The Queen calls up Meghan every night to see what Meg will wear the next day so they can coordinate, and then they end up on the phone for an hour as they talk about British history and horses.
Also: The Sun ran an honest-to-God article about how Meghan wears heels the seem one size too big, because I guess that’s something that people were complaining about?? The reason why Meg’s shoes seem a tad roomy? She’s worried about bunions and blisters, apparently.
In the summer of 2015, when the government was not run by Nazi baby stealers, Ben Affleck’s affair with the nanny was big news. Do you remember that woman, Christine Ouzounian? She got papped in her bikini, got a convertible Lexus, talked about a reality show and then disappeared. I’m sure a nice cash settlement was involved in that disappearance. Prior to that one of Ouznian’s outlets of choice was Entertainment Tonight. There’s overlap between Affleck’s relationship with Ouzounian and his affair with Lindsay Shookus, which reportedly started in 2014. (US Magazine, Garner’s go-to mag, reported that detail.)
In the interim between Affleck’s nanny scandal and the press discovering his long-term affair with Shookus, he reunited with Garner. There were multiple stories in the celebrity-friendly outlets reporting this, including an US cover. So after getting busted for screwing his kids nanny and while secretly seeing an SNL producer, Affleck was publicly reuniting with Garner. (Incidentally the last time Affleck was on SNL was in 2013, when Garner came on too and they made fun of the press speculation around their marriage.)
Clearly Shookus has witnessed a lot of bullsh-t from Affleck during her relationship with him, and she was fine with that and came out the “victor,” so she’s sticking around. ET has a sourced article, written from her perspective, about how she’s supporting Ben in his alleged sobriety. Affleck doesn’t intend to propose or have Shookus move in permanently, but of course that’s ok with her. Consider everything she’s been ok with so far.
A source tells ET that the 45-year-old actor and the Saturday Night Live producer are extremely happy.
“Lindsay and Ben are very much in love,” the source says. “During Ben and Jennifer [Garner's] split, Lindsay truly felt villainized. Every day she spent with Ben out in the world for people to see felt like another day of public scrutiny, but her love for Ben was worth it. They both learned to stick by each other during those painful months.”
The source adds that “Ben has worked incredibly hard on his sobriety and Lindsay has been his rock. He will be forever grateful for all her love and support. They are both constantly being asked if they are planning to tie the knot, but for now they taking it one day at a time.”
In fact, the source says the Justice League star is in no rush to get married again. “Ben knows he loves Lindsay, but he wants to take things slow for the sake of his sobriety. He’s actually been told to take it slow and he’s heeding that advice,” adding that “Ben isn’t ready to propose and has no plans to get engaged anytime soon, but Lindsay feels he is worth the wait.”
Meanwhile on Thursday, the couple was photographed arriving to Affleck’s Santa Monica office.
Shookus, 38, has also recently been spotted at Affleck’s home in Los Angeles, but the move isn’t permanent.
“At this point, Lindsay isn’t moving into his new house full time. Lindsay respects Ben’s space,” the source says. “Ben just bought a new house last month very nearby to Jen’s house so he can be closer to the kids.”
As for his relationship with Garner, the source explains that the exes are getting along and happily co-parenting their three children, Violet, Seraphina and Samuel.
There’s more about how Affleck is a great co-parent with Garner but I’ll spare you. I would be embarrassed for Shookus but she’s a grown woman, she knows what she’s doing and she’s been doing it for some time. She’s not being villainized, it’s just hard not to notice the obvious details. I’m sure that was so painful for her, to be outed as Ben’s secret lover when he was fooling around with his kids nanny and then getting back with Garner. Love won in the end and she’s now his rock during his sobriety, willing to wait for him. How long has he been sober this time?
Update: Thanks to Rapunzel for pointing out that Affleck isn’t even officially divorced yet despite the fact that they filed last spring.

Beyonce once described Blue Ivy as her “road dog.” That was when Blue was just a baby, but apparently Blue has always been good on the road. Beyonce and Jay-Z take the child everywhere, to museums and gallery openings to charity fundraisers and concerts. The child sits front row at the Grammys. She’s been going on her parents’ tours since she was a baby, and now at the age of 6, she’s old enough to stand in the audience, in a group of adults and other kids and actually watch her parents’ concerts. I mean, I’m absolutely positive that Blue’s section is VIP AF. But she’s still among the Beyhive peasants, and those peasants film her reactions to her parents sometimes. Like this amazing moment when, in the middle of her parents’ concert, the video of Bey and Jay in bed came on the screen:

So what do you think? I kind of think Blue Ivy is the tour manager and whatever she says goes in the Carter household. According to Star, Blue has her own set-up backstage too:
Sources working on the On the Run II tour reveal that Blue Ivy Carter, 6, may by pint-sized but her demands are anything but.
“Blue had exact replicas made of her mom’s costumes so she could wear them too,” tattles a tipster. “Her dressing room is stocked full of Barbies and Peppa Pig toys. Plus she has a tea set with real china dolls and a playhouse that looks just like her mansion in LA.”
But the little princess needs more than just Lemonade to snack on! A source tells Star: “Blue has a chef make thick-crust pizza with pineapples served on pink and purple plates, and chocolate-marshmallow gelato – not too frozen, because that bothers her gums. Beyonce and Jay-Z know it’s over the top, but touring is stressful for a kid and they figured if she has her creature comforts, she’s less likely to melt down on the road!”
[From Star Magazine, print edition]
I think it just makes sense for Beyonce and Jay-Z – who have more money than they know what to do with – to just let Blue have her own space and her own toys and her own things around her at all time. I also bet that the chef makes Blue whatever food she wants. Now, all that being said, I think Blue is probably pretty easy-going about traveling at this point and I doubt it’s this involved. She’s been doing traveling and touring all her life, and she seems like a well-adjusted and funny little girl.

Kim Kardashian is giving exclusive interviews all over the place. This week, she spoke to both The Hollywood Reporter and Entertainment Tonight, and good lord, she talked about almost everything. I wasn’t interested at all regarding her comments about Khloe, so I’m not including them – she just went on and on about how Khloe is back in LA, with Tristan, and yadda yadda, the whole family is back together, whatever. I am interested in what she says about Donald Trump and North West’s chore chart. Some highlights:
Her political activism: “It’s a longer-term mission for me. I never started out thinking I was being political. I just thought I was helping people and I knew that I had the opportunity or the resources, so I used them and, you know, it worked out really well for Alice. I definitely saw a lot of compassion from the White House with her and I really do believe it’s just the beginning.
What she thinks of the family separation issue: “It is really complex. It’s heartbreaking. When you see those images, it breaks your heart and I hope that it all gets resolved. You don’t want to see these things…. Political issues can be so divisive. I try to see all sides, especially after this experience [referring to the controversy over her visit to the White House]. There’s obviously a lot that we don’t agree with, but I want him [President Trump] to win. I want him to succeed, because it’s our country. It’s so crazy that everyone doesn’t want that.
Why North’s hair was straight in recent photos: “She wanted straight hair and I straightened her hair one time. It’s funny, because online everyone thought that we pressed it and did this whole thing. It was just a flat iron. I even read that she had extensions on! She has curly hair, so when you straighten her hair, it’s gonna look really long. I can’t believe people didn’t get that… It was her birthday and all she wanted was to try to have her hair straightened. She and [her cousin] Penelope had a unicorn party, so I said, ‘You can do it for your party and you can do it when we go to New York if you like it.’ She liked it, so we did it when we went to New York too and that’s it. You know, I’m not gonna let her straighten her hair all the time, but if she wants it that way two or three days a year, then that’s fine with me. She loved it, but she loves her curly hair, too.”
North isn’t as spoiled as you think: “What I do for her birthday, she gets gifts and then she has to be really good and do her chores and walk her dog. We have a chore chart that she has to make her bed. She has so many things she has to do if she wants to get something, so she doesn’t really get a whole lot of stuff like you would think.”
North is a Gemini: “She’s a Gemini, so she’s a little bit of both [me and Kanye West]. She definitely has Kanye’s outgoing personality and will say what’s on her mind no matter what it is and who it might offend. But then she’s sweet like me. So she’s a little bit of both.”
“I want him [President Trump] to win. I want him to succeed, because it’s our country. It’s so crazy that everyone doesn’t want that…” This drives me absolutely bonkers. It drove me bonkers when people said it just after he was elected too, like “we should want him to do well because MURICA,” like he was a blank f–king slate after he got elected. He was not a blank slate – he ran on racism, bigotry, white supremacy and misogyny. F–k no, I don’t want him to succeed. I don’t want that Fat Nazi to ever get a win, because if he gets a win, that’s a win for white supremacy, etc.
As for what she says about North and North’s hair and her chore chart…I don’t believe that North will only be “allowed” to have straight hair a few days a year. I just doubt it. But I do believe North probably has a chore chart.
Well, it’s happening. Less than a month ago, Roseanne Barr went on a racist Twitter rant on Memorial Day and got her ass fired by ABC. ABC had decided to “reboot” the original Roseanne series even though Roseanne had more than proven herself to be a racist nutjob many, many times over the years. The reboot was successful and problematic, especially when Donald Trump started praising it and Roseanne started praising him. Then the racist tweets happened and suddenly everyone acted like it was brand new information that Roseanne Barr is a racist clown. Almost immediately after the show was canceled, Sara Gilbert and the producers took meetings with ABC to see if they could possibly salvage the show without Roseanne. It took less than a month for The Conners to get greenlighted.
ABC isn’t letting go of Roseanne that easily. Just a few weeks week after ABC Entertainment president Channing Dungey abruptly canceled the extremely popular Roseanne reboot due to Roseanne Barr’s racist tweet about former Obama adviser Valerie Jarrett, the network has found a way to keep a version of the comedy part of its fall line-up, with 10 episodes currently ordered.
Currently titled The Conners, the spinoff will feature Dan (John Goodman), Jackie (Laurie Metcalf), Darlene (Sara Gilbert), Becky (Lecy Goranson) and DJ (Michael Fishman) facing the daily struggles of life in Lanford in a way they never have before “after a sudden turn of events.”
Who wants to take bets on that sudden turn of events? Sources tell E! News that the entire writing staff has been hired back, and according to ABC, Roseanne herself will have “no financial or creative involvement in the new series.”
The entire cast released a joint statement: “We have received a tremendous amount of support from fans of our show, and it’s clear that these characters not only have a place in our hearts, but in the hearts and homes of our audience. We all came back last season because we wanted to tell stories about the challenges facing a working-class family today. We are so happy to have the opportunity to return with the cast and crew to continue to share those stories through love and laughter.”
The biggest question everybody had regarding the spinoff/reboot was “will Roseanne Barr profit in any way from this?” The answer isn’t 100% clear. ABC claims that Roseanne will have “no financial or creative involvement in the new series.” Apparently, ABC did work out some kind of deal with Roseanne where she “will retain all rights to her Roseanne Conner character and any future spinoffs beyond The Conners or any future reboots of the original.” Roseanne released a statement saying that she agreed to this solution so that the jobs of 200 cast and crew members could be saved. What’s unclear is if ABC had to pay Roseanne “go-away money” to waive her rights to the characters she created and still owns. The Hollywood Reporter has more about all of that – go here to read.
As for the “sudden turn of events”… people are already having a field day with how the fictional Roseanne Conner character could be written off the show. I mean, it feels like they’re going to kill off her character, but how will it be done?
