90 Day Fiance: Two Sneak Peeks Show Two HUGE Fights

This week's 90 Day Fiance news has been dominated by Larissa's arrest as we've learned more and more about what happened.

But now we have not one but two new sneak peeks for this weekend's episode.

Which two couples had huge fights? Take a look:

Jonathan and fernanda argue on 90 day fiance

First, let's start with Jonathan and Fernanda.

After Fernanda exits the bathroom to find Jonathan seemingly dancing with another woman, she goes ballistic.

She confronts them (that's a bit of an understatement) and storms out.

Jonathan is clearly, visibly intoxicated but upset that she's upset. She demands the keys to the car.

"Do you want to get married with me?" Fernanda asks.

His behavior has, just as when she found another woman's thong in his apartment, made her second-guess everything.

Fernanda hates to feel stupid on 90 day fiance

Jonathan tries to address her doubts and insecurities.

"Of course I do," he insists, assuring her that he wants to marry her.

We're not shaming anyone for drinking, and we don't doubt his sincerety, but he would have sounded more convincing if he'd been less under the influence.

"Well show me!" Fernanda suggests. "Because I don’t feel that!"

Fernanda is clearly feeling hurt and angry and cannot help but wonder, once again, if she uprooted her entire life for nothing.

Fernanda catches jonathan dancing with another woman

Jonathan is clearly distressed, but in his current state, isn't exactly helping his case.

"She's not even my type," he protests.

He means to sound sweet, but it totally misses the point. And Fernanda wants to leave -- but she's not ready to talk about it.

Jonathan shares with the 90 Day Fiance cameras that this is caused by Fernanda's immaturity.

He admits that this sort of thing is exactly what they had warned him about.

He, too, is beginning to second guess their plans to marry.

Fernanda has concerns

Real talk: Fernanda is 19 years old. Jonathan is in his early 30s.

Of course there is a maturity gap. They're both adults, but they're at different points in their lives.

Did Fernanda overreact? Yes. That's not super surprising coming from a teenager.

That said, the two of them met in a club in Maxico in the first place.

Maybe Jonathan should be more sensitive of his fiancee's feelings and take a proactive approach to addressing her insecurities.

That said, the nice thing about these two is that neither of them is the bad guy.

Kalani yells and drives on 90 day fiance

Kalani and Asuelu's engagement is complicated by a baby and by Kalani's family.

Their fight, however, comes from a place of misunderstanding about baby safety.

Maybe it's a cultural difference, as Kalani suggests, or maybe Asuelu is just newer to being a parent.

But their precious baby begins crying while Kalani is driving.

(Also she's eating cheetos with her hands while she drives which makes me recoil; I use chopsticks for those)

Asuelu responds by wanting to comfort the baby, who is clearly in distress, but he does it in the wrong way.

Asuelu gripes on 90 day fiance

Asuelu removes their baby from the car seat.

Car seats for babies are not optional or suggestions. Babies are small and delicate.

If you're going to have a baby hurtling along at 80 miles per hour, neither a seatbelt nor a parent's arms are sufficient protection.

Kalani tells him this -- actually, she yells this at him. All the time, their baby is crying.

Kalani is eventually able to pull over, still very frustrated with Asuelu.

Asuelu says that he didn't know about that, and feels hurt that Kalani was less than gentle about educating him on it.

Once again, there's no real bad guy here -- but it looks like Asuelu needs ot learn some more if he's serious about being a father.

90 day fiance two sneak peeks show two huge fights

Kim Kardashian: Tristan is NOT Sorry for Diddling His "Whores"

Sorry, Tristan Thompson.

But Kim Kardashian is NOT buying what you are trying to sell.

On this Sunday's episode of Keeping Up with the Kardashians, viewers will witness the fallout of Thompson cheating on Khloe Kardashian, as we catch up with the latter after she gives birth to her daughter.

In THIS CLIP, we see Kim seeing Tristan for the first time since this scandal broke.

And in THIS CLIP, we see Khloe reading all about what transpired on her phone, while lamenting all the well wishes being sent her way.

Now, in the latest sneak peek from the upcoming installment, we see Kim and Kris Jenner speaking with another member of the family about what went down when the family truly confronted Tristan about his wandering penis.

"He was very remorseful and feeling obviously sick over everything that happened," Kris explained to cousin Cici Bussey.

Kim doesn't really agree with this assessment, however.

"But I told him, 'I think you're more remorseful because it's affecting your job,'" she says, adding:

"I think he's more embarrassed that he looks stupid 'cause the public and booing him. And I think it's more of that than anything and I told him that."

In a confessional, Kim later says that the Kardashian didn't film the meeting (WHAT?!?!?!?) because they "really wanted it to be a private talk," where they all "expressed exactly how we felt."

(Editor's Note: Is this not admitting that everything that is filmed is basically scripted and NOT an example of the family expressing what they really feel?)

As for how Thompson reacted to this confrontation?

Says Kim:

"He got mad because my mom was like, 'You can make your decision. If you want to live this life of dating these Instagram whores and doing your thing, live that life.'

"If this doesn't work out with you guys, we're always going to rise up.'"

All these months after this episode was shot, of course, we know that Khloe and Tristan are together and trying their best to put Thompson's horrible acts behind them.

At one point in the video featured here, Kris hints at why Khloe has made this decision.

She really does want to be part of a close-knit immediately family.

"Khloe has been so invested, moved to Cleveland, nested in this house and made it a home," says Jenner.

"She said something really interesting, she said, 'I didn't have a baby just to have a baby and move on.'

"She said 'I had a baby to create a beautiful family' and that's what broke my heart. She really never saw it coming either."

Jinger Duggar Gets Mom-Shamed Again: Enough With the Head Wraps!

Back in July, Jinger Duggar welcomed her first child.

And like so many of her sisters, she's enjoyed sharing all the joys of her motherhood with her millions of social media followers.

Jinger Duggar and Felicity Vuolo, Twinning

Unfortunately, as with her sisters, many of Jinger's followers visit her page for the sole purpose of talking trash.

Yes, mom-shaming the Duggars is a favorite activity of many Instagram trolls.

And the folks who engage in this sort of activity really don't need much to set them off.

They can be triggered by Jessa Duggar's messy house, Jill's perceived shortcomings as a homeschool teacher, or even Felicity Vuolo's head wraps.

Felicity Vuolo Found Her Hand

Yes, Jinger enjoys putting various forms of headgear on her child, and for reasons we can't quite figure, a very vocal contingent of Instagram users finds this practice reprehensible.

And the craziest part is, they can't even agree on why it's wrong.

At first, Jinger was slammed for cultural appropriation.

Felicity Vuolo on Instagram

As is the case most of the time that term is used, people were angry, but they weren't really sure why.

Now that that argument has been laid to rest -- probably because Jinger's haters realized no culture can lay claim to the practice of wrapping fabric around a baby's head -- several new ones have emerged.

Jinger recently posted the photo below to Instagram, setting off a whole new round of criticism:

Felicity Vuolo Behind the Scenes

“Felicity helping Uncle Scott with interviews,� she captioned the pic.

Seems innocent enough, but some fans took issue with little Lissy's hat.

A few speculated that Jinger is planning to launch a children's fashion line, and she's "using" Felicity to model her wares.

Jinger Duggar, Jeremy Vuolo, and Baby Felicity at a Cubs Game

There's no indication that's true, but even if it were ... would that really be so bad?

Others simply don't care for Felicity's fashion sense.

“Young moms are going overboard with head wraps for their girls all the time,� wrote one.

Felicity at 3 Months

Another commented that Felicity looks like "an old lady."

Yes, the kind of people who spend their time insulting babies on the internet are firmly convinced that their voices deserve to be heard.

This is some peak 2018 sh-t right here, folks. 

We shudder to think what next year might bring.

Lisa Vanderpump: I’m Not Leaving The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills!

It's finally happening -- for better or for worse.

Reports surfaced earlier this week that Lisa Vanderpump is leaving The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.

Now, Lisa herself is speaking out and looking to set the record straight.

Lisa Vanderpump Is Everything

Speaking to Us Weekly, Lisa Vanderpump mostly denies the report that she's leaving the franchise.

"I am in the season, obviously," Lisa says.

That, at least, we already knew -- because there was a controversy over her refusing to film certain scenes with her castmates.

"There are some parts I missed," Lisa admits. "And you’ll see why."

We already heard that Lisa ghosted the other Housewives because they were bullying her in some form or another.

"And," Lisa says. "I think maybe we’ll have a better understanding when you watch the show."

Lisa Vanderpump With a Big Glass of Wine

"There’s a plethora of stories that say I’m quitting," Lisa acknowledges.

She says that there are also many stories "that say I’m trying to get Jax [Taylor] off [Vanderpump Rules]."

"If I had quit," she promises. "I would have said it."

She expresses frustration that people think that she would sit on the story if it were true.

"Can we just trust that I would … I’ve never had a problem with kind of coming forward speaking my mind," Lisa says.

That said ... she isn't promising that she's going to come back to the show, either.

Andy Cohen and Lisa Vanderpump

Reports make it very clear that Lisa Vanderpump would never be fired.

But Lisa says that she can't make any assurances about her future with the franchise.

"It’s like saying am I going to a Christmas party next year," Lisa says. "You know, you don’t know, do you?"

"You don’t know if you’re going to be invited back," she explains.

Lisa even mentions the possibility of cancelation: "You don’t know if they’re going to do the show."

"So that’s a little hypothetical, really," Lisa characterizes.

She really seems determined to dance around this topic.

Lisa Vanderpump on Season 6

Lisa has very clearly not been getting along with her co-stars on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.

She's been refusing to film with them, and even missed Camille's wedding.

Despite their heated arguments in Season 9, Kyle Richards told Us Weekly earlier this month that she loves Lisa.

Lisa has now responded to that claim, saying that words are not enough.

"Don’t tell me," Lisa says. "Show me!"

That's great advice for storytelling and for friendship, folks.

Lisa Vanderpump in 2016

"I have talked to Camille, yes, absolutely," Lisa affirms.

"She was actually asking me about her little dog because he wasn’t feeling so well," she explains.

Lisa Vanderpump is a dog-lover. Like, almost everyone is, but Lisa even more than most.

Camilla, of course, was one of many people to lose her home in the wildfires that are spreading through Southern California.

"I think it’s, you know, it’s a huge loss," Lisa says. "It’s just not, it’s just not a house, it’s the memories, but you know, it is very difficult for her."

"But then again, she just got married so maybe it’s a new life, a new beginning," Lisa says, trying to paint a silver lining.

"She seemed upbeat," Lisa says of Camille. "But I know it’s a very sad, very sad situation to lose so much."

Lisa Vanderpump: 2016 People's Choice Awards

Earlier this year, Lisa lost her brother.

But she says that she is very much in touch with his children.

"They live in England, but you know, I’m close with them,� she shares. 

“Obviously I think we hold onto each other," Lisa concludes. "It’s been very difficult."

So ... she's at least mostly denying that she's leaving the show, but it feels like she's playing word games and dancing around her answers.

Lauren Comeau: My Baby is Happy, Healthy and HERE!

Lauren Comeau has spoken out for the first time since before a mother... 

... for, well, the first time.

As previously reported, Comeau gave birth to a child alongside Javi Marroquin just after 3 p.m. on Thursday, welcoming a precious boy about two weeks prior to her due date.

Lauren Comeau Chills with Javi

The newborn does not have a name, but it's very clear he does have two very loving parents.

"It's been amazing," Marroquin told Radar Online about becoming a father once again.

Radar included a snapshot of the parents and their child, as Javi continued:

"I even shed some tears. For those that don't know, I'm not an emotional person anymore at all and just seeing my son come out really had me in my feelings."

Comeau was due on December 1.

But she explained to Radar that she had to be induced several days beforehand, not expounding on the reason why.

Lauren Comeau with Javi M

"It's been incredible," she told the site, though, adding:

"Being induced definitely threw us for a spin. I was nervous about having to start from zero at the hospital, but we had a really great experience."

We assume she means having to start at zero centimeters dilation upon the induction.

You don't want to hear about technical medical details, we know.

You want to know the name of Javi and Lauren's baby, right?

Javi with Lauren Comeau

The thing is... so do they!

Marroquin told Radar very shortly after the baby was born that he and his girlfriend have not yet picked one out.

"His first overnight was amazing," Lauren added in her post-birth interview. "We all three slept in between nurse visits. He's latching great. He's a happy, healthy boy!"

Marroquin, as you likely know, appeared on multiple episodes of Teen Mom 2 back when he was married to Kailyn Lowry.

They divorced after four years of marriage, but have kept in close touch because they share a five-year old son named Lincoln.

Javi Marroquin with Lauren Comeau and Lincoln

In response to Javi becoming a dad again, Lowry wrote "congrats" on Twitter and linked to a story about the exciting development.

Lincoln actually turns five years old today and he's already met his baby half-sibling.

“Firstborn is turning 5, getting him balloons now,� Marroquin said in an Instagram video on Friday.

“I’m going to go back to the hospital to hang with my new guy and Lauren and then I’m going to come back before Lincoln wakes up to wish him a happy birthday.�

Click below for more details on the birth and join us in sending a hearty CONGRATULATIONS to Javi and Lauren...

Khloe Kardashian Will Spend Thanksgiving With Tristan Thompson, Continue to Disappoint Fans

Folks, if you're still holding onto a shred of hope that Khloe Kardashian will dump Tristan Thompson, it may be time to give that up.

Despite the fact that Tristan was caught cheating on Khloe will she was pregnant with his child, it looks like these two are gonna ride this thing out.

Khloe Kardashian and Tristan Thompson on Halloween

For a while there, it looked as though Khloe was dropping hints about kicking her unfaithful baby daddy to the curb.

These days, however, it's more apparent than ever that these two are planning to stick it out.

In fact, TMZ is reporting that Khloe will travel to Cleveland next week to spend Thanksgiving with Tristan and his family.

Cuddle for Khloe

Obviously, spending Thanksgiving with your significant other's loved ones is a solid indication that you're in a committed relationship.

But spending Thanksgiving in Cleveland -- well, that's next level.

Khloe had the option of chillin' on the beach in Calabasas, and instead, she's slogging off to the shores of beautiful Lake Erie.

And it you don't live in the Northeast or Midwest, then you might not be aware of it, but winter came early this year.

Mom and Dad Pic

We're sure Khloe has all kinds of fashionable attire for colder climates, but we're also sure she'd prefer to be at home, raking in a nice payday for hanging out with her sisters in the presence of an E! camera crew.

Of course, True's mama might be accustomed to the frigid temps by now.

After all, Khloe has been spending quite a bit of time in Cleveland lately.

Khloe Kardashian with the Smooch

She's attended several recent Cavs home games, and her presence seems to be having a positive effect on Tristan.

Thompson has been killing it on the court lately and looked especially dominant in his team's win over Charlotte Tuesday night.

So in the end, it looks like everything is coming up roses for Khloe and Tristan.

Tristan

Of course, it's still very early in the NBA season.

Tristan has a lot of away games ahead of him.

Which means lots of time away from Khloe ... and lots of opportunities to cheat.

Tamera Mowry Shares Grief After Laying to Rest Slain Niece

Last week, Alaina Housley, niece of Tamera Mowry and Adam Housley, was murdered in a mass shooting.

Now, the bright teenager has been laid to rest.

Temera shared a heartbreaking quote about grief to mark the occassion.

Tamera Mowry and Alaina Housley

Reports on the 12 innocent lives lost in the Thousand Oaks shooting were consumed by stories of the raging wildfire that is tearing through Southern California.

But Tamera can't think of anything but her niece, her grief, and her family.

"Today we lay you to rest sweet angel," Tamera writes on Instagram.

"I’ll miss you forever," she continues. "And your sweet smile."

"Until we meet again," Tamera adds.

She follows those words in her caption with an emoji of two linked hearts.

Tamera Mowry Shares Post About Grief

Her caption is beside an image of a very relevant quote.

"Grief never ends… but it changes," the quote begins.

"It’s a passage, not a place to stay," the quote continues.

The quote notes: "Grief is not a sign of weakness, nor a lack of faith."

"It is," the quote concludes. "The price of love."

That is heartbreaking but very accurate.

Alaina Housley Picture

Tamera gave context for the quote that she shared.

"This quote was sent to me by my friend David," she says.

She didn't tag him, which is a tasteful way to give him credit without getting him mobbed by fans.

"When I am having a challenging day," Tamera shares. "I cling to it."

She has had a lot of challenging days in the past week.

Her entire family has.

Tamera Mowry Pic

Tamera confirmed that she did not have sex until she was 29 and then, wracked by guilt due to her religious beliefs, remained celibate until marriage.

She has come under fire for her marriage to Adam Housley.

Some took aim at their interracial marriage -- because yes, this world is still full of hatefulness and racism.

Others took aim because of Housley's role at Fox News, a conservative outlet that gives a platform to outspoken white supremacists like Laura Ingraham and Tucker Carlson.

It should be noted that Housley departed from his role at Fox News in protest over the network's pivot from actual journalism to Trump hype.

And at any rate, any criticisms that one might have of Tamera or her husband can wait.

They are in mourning.

Alaina Housley

Alaina Housley was a freshman at Pepperdine University.

It was college night at the Borderline Bar & Grill in Thousand Oaks, California.

What should have been a night to party, mix, and mingle turned into a massacre.

Tamera and Adam have expressed their sorrow, not only for their own loss, but for the other 11 innocents who were gunned down.

And for their families, and for the numerous individuals who were injured.

One of the victims who did not survive had, just a year earlier, survived the Las Vegas shooting.

Alaina Housley Photo

To Alaina's loved ones who survive her, the reality of her tragic death is still sinking in.

Some of them may feel betrayed that the world immediately moved on from the story of the massacre.

As we mentioned, multiple blazes following serious drought in Southern California have raged through.

Entire towns have been destroyed. Dozens are dead. Hundreds are missing or unaccounted for.

2018 has visited many horrors upon us all, but seems to be doubling down on the people of Southern California as the year draws to a close.

Rest in peace, Alaina. We hope that her family is able to cope with this unthinkable loss.

Javi Marroquin: Kailyn Lowry and Lauren Comeau Will NEVER Be Friends!

Last night, the world learned that Javi Marroquin and Lauren Comeau have welcomed a child.

The baby boy is Javi's second child and Lauren's first.

As Javi pointed out in a video message to fans, this is an exciting time for the young couple for a number of reasons.

Not only did he just welcome a second son, his firstborn is about to turn 5, and Javi announced this week that he'll soon enter the world of celebrity boxing.

“So with this boxing fight and the birth of my new son, probably wasn’t a good idea to do it on the same day,� Marroquin said in the video.

“I have a quick second, so many people texting me and calling me I’ve been ignoring everything.�

On top of all that Javi and Lauren recently bought a house together.

So we think it's safe to say she'll be sticking around for a while.

And that may not sit well with Javi's first baby mama.

Kailyn Lowry-Lauren Comeau

As we've reported before, Lauren and Kailyn Lowry do not get along.

And it doesn't look as though that will be changing any time soon.

Javi admits that he's not thrilled with the situation and wishes Kail and Lauren could find some common ground.

But he also says he won't be forcing the issue:

Javi with Lauren Comeau

“I tell Lauren this all the time, I think we’re just gonna let it flow and let it happen naturally, so whenever we cross paths and they just talk and stop and meet, I mean, we’re not gonna force it,� Javi recently told Us Weekly.

“We’re not gonna set up a dinner date or whatnot," he added.

"We’re gonna see each other at sporting events, like basketball is starting up again in the winter, but we’re just gonna let it happen naturally and when it happens, it happens.�

We guess that's the mature approach to take here.

Now, let's see if everyone sticks with it.

Asked about the rumors that Kail has a new boyfriend, Javi was similarly non-committal:

“Kail is pretty open with me as far as communication, so if it’s true, I mean I’m sure she’ll tell me soon,� he told Us.

“I think I tell this to Kail all the time, you know, she deserves a lot. She’s a very hard worker and it’s a shame that she’s … I don’t want to see her settle, so I tell her all the time, ‘Know your worth and don’t settle for anyone. Your time will come.’

"I just want her to know that you know, she’s special and someone out there will be great for her. I just don’t want her to get caught up with any bad guys and see her cry or any of the stuff like that and that’s really it.�

It's great that Javi has Kail's best interests at heart. 

Now if only he felt that way when they were together.

Ariana Grande: Pete Davidson is Gone, and So is My Hair!

Ariana Grande has been having such a moment, hasn't she?

And honestly, it's been really lovely to see.

Ariana Grande is Pensive

Remember a few years ago when she was known by so many as the girl from that Nickelodeon show who licked a donut in that bakery?

She's grown so very much since then, and so has her career.

So has her status as an icon, honestly.

Even if you don't consider yourself a fan of hers, there's no denying she has talent.

Ariana Grande on Ellen

With her signature high ponytail, she's also known for her style.

Yep, Ariana's been rocking that ponytail for years now -- the ponytail, and only the ponytail.

There have been just a few occasions she's gone without it, and it's always been a big deal.

But now, believe it or not, the ponytail is gone.

Ariana's New Hair

Really, truly, forever gone.

As wild as it is to consider, it looks like this girl is just like most of us in that she followed the time-honored tradition of "have a big breakup, get a big haircut."

She was engaged to Pete Davidson, and now she's not.

She's no longer with that waist-length hair, either:

Ariana Grande with Perfume

It looks so good, right?!

She went for the popular "lob" style -- a long bob for you squares -- just like Khloe Kardashian before her.

She's said several times in the past that she's stuck with her ponytail for so long because her hair got heavily damaged by coloring it red repeatedly for Victorious, her old show.

More specifically, she had to bleach it and then dye it red every other week for years, so yeah, the damage must have been real.

She tried wigs and didn't like how they looked, and she tried to get a weave, but it was too painful for her.

So finally she settled on extensions, but she felt that she needed the ponytail because the part of her hair that was real was so broken "that it looks absolutely ratchet and absurd when I let it down."

It has been almost five years since she said that, so we assume she grew attached to that signature style of hers.

After all, that would have been more than enough time for her real hair to grow out enough that she could cut off the damaged parts.

Ariana Grande: A Picture

But it doesn't really matter anymore, does it?

The ponytail is gone, the extensions are gone, and we are left with this gorgeous, gorgeous look.

And it sounds like Ariana's fans are loving it as much as we are!

"Perfectionnn," one of her followers commented. "Yaassss girl, that hair is amazing."

"Omg you're so beautiful I love it," another fan gushed.

Then, as someone else declared, "God is indeed a woman and her name is Ariana Grande."

Demi Lovato even popped up to call her a "cutie" and leave some heart emojis.

That's the power of Ariana Grande, isn't it?

She can bring so many people together, even people having such huge problems like Demi, to praise her wondrousness.

We can't imagine Pete ever stopped kicking himself after losing her, but now?

Sorry 'bout it, bud.

Sofia Richie and Scott Disick: Breaking Up Over Cheating Rumors?

According to a new report, there's more to Sofia Richie's fear that Scott Disick will cheat.

She's apparently given him an ultimatum.

If he goes running back to Kourtney's bed, he won't get to return to hers.

Sofia Richie and Scott Disick Look Sad

Life & Style reports that though this couple is still together, but that their split may be inevitable.

"Sofia has made it very clear that if [he] strays, it’s over," the insider reveals.

She is particularly worried that he's banging his ex.

According to the source, "She’d hate to see Kourtney [Kardashian] get one up on her."

"Although," the insider admits. "Saying and doing are two different things."

In other words, telling Scott to never cross that line isn't the same thing as following up on her vow to end things if he slips up.

Scott and Sofia Get Wet

Apparently, she's genuinely worried that he can't resist his ex.

Honestly, a lot of past and present fans of Scott and Kourtney have also gotten that vie.

"Sofia has her suspicions about Kourt and Scott hooking up," the source shares.

"But," the insider continues. "He swears that nothing is going on between them."

Well, as we all know, if a dude is cheating, he'll totally fess up immediately if you ask him.

In all seriousness, though, they share years of history and three children. It's normal for them to talk.

Scott Holds Sofia

Apparently, a lot of Sofia's alleged concerns come from a place of insecurity.

"Nothing seems to stop Sofia from feeling like the third wheel to Kourtney," the source reports.

That is understandable.

Scott and Kourtney's shared history (and children) means that they have so much life in common.

They have an easy chemistry, even as exes, and can naturally have smooth conversations.

Scott's much-younger girlfriend would notice and might even feel left out of their conversations.

That sounds pitiful.

Sofia on a Bed

You know who is not helping this situation at all?

Scott.

It wasn't so long ago that Scott openly spoke about trying things again with Kourtney.

According to the self-styled Lord: "We always said we’d try to get back together when we’re 40."

Well, Kourtney is going to be 40 in less than half a year -- in April of 2019.

Sofia might be taking that as a very serious countdown.

Scott Disick & Brunette Sofia Richie Cuddle

Sofia was 19 when she and Scott first hooked up. She's now 20.

Now, she's an adult -- Scott may be creepy, but he's not doing anything illegal.

But at that age, she's very likely still feeling all sorts of emotions more strongly than the guy 75% older than she is feeling.

We should also acknowledge that Sofia has already given Scott one of her best years.

She's a young adult and a super hot model.

We hope that Scott is being sensitive to Sofia's feelings regarding, well, everything, including Kourtney.

We also hope that Scott is not taking Sofia or his relationship with her for granted.

Scott Disick and Sofia Richie, Helicopter PDA

Ultimately, all relationships end, and we don't expect that Scott and Sofia's will be any different.

But it would certainly be better if no one, say, cheats or dismisses the other's feelings. People should be nice to their loved ones.

That said, we cannot confirm that Sofia believes that Scott has been cheating.

Do a lot of people believe it? Sure. Has Sofia openly confirmed that it's a suspicion of hers? Of course not.

So we'll take this report with a grain of salt and keep an eye out.

Kim Kardashian: Kanye Doesn’t Know Sh-t About Politics! He Just Likes That Trump’s a Jerk!

Last month, Kanye West fans the world over breathed a sigh of relief when the rapper denounced politics and vowed to focus on his creative endeavors.

Of course, this is Kanye we're talking about, so that resolution could be out the window by this afternoon.

Classic Kimye

But for now, at least, West seems to have hung up his MAGA hat and is finallt realizing that his foray into the political arena was ill-advised, to say the least.

(Lest we forget, dude said slavery was a choice. That's one of the cringiest celebrity comments of all time.)

Kanye's wife, Kim Kardashian, has recently become more engaged in politics as well, but the mother of three has met with a very different response.

Kimye Selfie Time

Possibly because she's not a moron and has devoted her attention to actual important work like securing presidential pardons for non-violent offenders, Kim has been widely praised for her political engagement.

Earlier this week, Kim attended an event hosted by CNN's Van Jones, and in addition to opening up about her childhood love of OJ Simpson crime scene photos, she talked about Kanye's problematic politics.

“I feel like he’s very misunderstood and the worst communicator,� Kim said of her husband.

“But, when we talk about it, we have very similar politics. He’s very not political, actually, he just happens to like Donald Trump’s personality, but doesn’t know about the politics," she added/.

Kimye and Company

"So, I’ve educated him recently. I think it gets really misconstrued. He will always say he was friendly with him before, and he’s the same person and friendly."

Where to begin?

For starters, a 42-year-old son of a college professor who's been vastly wealthy for most of his life and spent the past two decades traveling the globe and hobnobbing with the world's most influential people shouldn't need his wife to educate him on politics.

On top of that -- and this is something that we all sometimes lose track of with all the emphasis on getting out the vote -- if you're disinterested in politics to the point that you can't be bothered to learn your favorite candidate's policy positions, then just disengage from politics.

Kimye Smiling!

Leave it to the people who actually take the time to click on a news article now and then.

Kim went on to induce more eye-rolls by defending Kanye's right to run his mouth about politics despite knowing nothing about politics:

“What he fights for is the right to like what he wants to like," Kardashian said.

"Even if it’s different from what you like. He never said, ‘Okay, I know what’s going on with immigration, and I know this and I know that.’ If he really knew, he would feel very compassionate about it. He never said that he supports that."

Kimye in 2017

But -- he supports the guy who supports that so ...

Asked about Kanye's disastrous White House visit, Kim had this to say"

“After he went to the White House or has been outspoken, I could have easily been on social media and corrected him.

“But I believe people have their own journeys. I know his heart, so I know that one day what he’s been trying to say will come out. It’s taken a little long so I’m jumping in and helping out, but I know his heart so I never really stress too much.�

Kanye West and Kim Kardashian for Fashion Week

Yowzers. The mental gymnastics on display here are almost impressive.

Jones was basically floored and praised Kim for "how much [she] loves[s] [her] husband" because really, what else is there to say?

Despite her reputation, Kim is no dummy.

Kimye and POTUS

She's also a longtime Democrat who voted for Hillary in 2016.

We're not saying people with opposing political beliefs can't get along (although raising kids must get tricky when your values are that diametrically opposed), but watching your spouse repeatedly take extremist stances on issues you know he hasn't researched must be a special kind of infuriating.

Thankfully, it looks as though Yeezy has come to his senses ... for now.
