Jennifer Aniston: Devastated, Humiliated By Justin Theroux Split

As you've likely heard by now, Jennifer Aniston and Justin Theroux have called it quits after two and a half years of marriage.

As is always the case when an A-list couple splits, there have been countless theories as to why Jen and Justin decided to go their separate ways.

Justin Theroux and Jennifer Aniston, Back in the Day

Some say Aniston wants to get back together with Brad Pitt.

Others claim Justin never wanted to marry Jen in the first place.

It may be quite some time before we know exactly what happened, but for now, accounts concur that Justin is the one who initiated the split, and geography played a major role in his decision.

Yes, geography.

It seems Justin just wasn't willing to part ways with his beloved New York City, and Jen is too much of a West Coast girl to relocate.

Jen and Justin

So how does Aniston feel about basically being dumped for a city?

Not surprisingly, she's less than thrilled about it.

"They've been separated for two months now," an insider tells E! News, "but were having intense issues for about eight months." 

"She really tried to make it work with him but the distance was a factor as he only wanted to live in N.Y.C. and there was no compromise with her."

The source adds:

"Their lifestyles were completely incompatible, and ultimately Justin decided to leave."

It seems that though she and Justin were broken up for several weeks before they announced their split, Jen has been having an especially hard time since news of the breakup went public:

"Jen was doing OK for a few weeks after Justin left, and then things got stirred up again when the announcement was made to the media," the insider claims.

"Adjusting to living by herself and not having Justin around," the source adds.

"She is used to the empty house since it's been months now without him, but it's still an uneasy feeling for her. She knows in due time she will feel tremendously better, but is really going through the motions right now."

Of course, this isn't Jen's first high-profile breakup, and those who know her best are confident she'll pull through:

"Jen knows she is strong and knows things will smooth over in time," the insider continues.

"She's been through this before, so she is trying to lay low for now and knows it's best if she doesn't go out in public for awhile."

And just as she did when her first marriage ended, Jen has been drawing strength from the support of her Friends friends:

"Courteney [Cox]'s been at her house many times, and has been by her side through it all," says the source.

"Many of her friends have known about this for months and knew it was coming. A lot of people didn't think that Jen and Justin were a good match from the start, but ultimately supported her decision."

Guess they really will be there for her when the rain starts to fall.

As for those rumors about Jen rekindling her romance with her first husband, the source says that while Aniston has reached out to Pitt in the months since her split, the actors have no intention of being anything other than friends.

"Jen never talks about Brad," the insider claims.

"Rekindling is not even a conversation. She has always thought that chapter is sealed and so far in the past."

Like that's gonna stop us from holding out hope!

The Bachelor Winter Games: Ben Higgins Leaves in Tears

The Bachelor Winter Games is more than just a way to pass the time between Bachelor episodes and reading each of The Bachelor Spoilers that leaks.

It's also a wild ride. This episode saw a very memorable Ghost homage on a surprisingly successful date. There was also an epic kissing contest with high stakes.

But Ben Higgins realized that he was in the wrong place. After talking it over and crying over Lauren Bushnell, he decided that it was time to leave.

For starters, it turns out that Dean and Lesley aren't just both beautiful -- they're both pretty good with a pair of skis, blowing everyone away as they raced down the slopes.

Josiah couldn't help shading Dean Unglert at little -- referring to Dean having "so many women at his disposal."

It sounds like a compliment or perhaps even a neutral description, but it's to remind everyone of Dean's disastrous love triangle in Paradise.

And Clare is much harsher about it.

(Oh, Deanie Babies, the Bachelor Nation is still so disappointed in you)

However, Dean and Lesley won two date cards and after a lot of soul-searching, decided to hand off one of them to Kevin and Ashley. Which is how we got this:

That's right, folks.

Kevin Wendt and Ashley Iaconetti did a full-on Ghost reenactment.

You'd think that a date that includes Ashley confessing that she's a virgin would be spent awkwardly, but Kevin was totally understanding.

(He is, after all, Canadian -- politeness is kind of their brand)

That didn't stop either of them from enjoying their spin pottery date. And Ashley said that she could really see herself falling for Kevin.

A lot of folks are rooting for these two.

After Tiffany realizes that it was time to say goodbye, Ben Higgins started questioning whether The Bachelor Winter Games was really best for him at the moment.

This resulted in the tearful heart-to-heart that he had with Chris Harrison, which you can see in the video below.

"Coming back to a place like this really brings up a lot of weird memories."

He says that he's haunted by the "ghosts" of his past, which means that this would have made a great Halloween episode. Alas.

"And then, to try to engage in relationships here, and know that the last time that I did this was one of the best moments of my life. ..."

Sometimes, you don't know that you're in the wrong place until you're there.

"But, right here, right now, it just doesn't feel right."

"My fear is not entering into a relationship, my fear is not pursuing somebody."

But he does know what his real fear is:

"My fear is that if I [were] to be broken again, I'm not full enough right now to recover from that."

We can totally understand that. You need to feel secure in yourself, emotionally. Some wounds stay raw for longer than you would think.

And perhaps being on The Bachelor Winter Games has exacerbated that.

And then he talks about what sounds like being deeply impacted by comments and fan speculation -- and not only that which was hurtful or intentionally hurtful.

By leaving, Ben Higgins (and Michael and Yuki) missed out on the kissing contest, which was judged by Rachel Lindsay, JoJo Fletcher, and Arie Luyendyk Jr.

Which means that Dean, Luke, Josiah, and Bibiana were engaging in a makeout contest ... in front of their exes.

Awkward beyond reason.

The best kissing was definitely Ashley and Kevin -- they got a standing ovation.

The worst? Josiah and Ally. Ally threw up right beforehand, and that's just not a recipe to a good kiss.

Take a look at Ben's tearful conversation and decide for yourself if he was right to leave:

Derick Dillard Under Fire For Atheist Sympathies: Has He Abandoned His Beliefs?

It's been quite an interesting few months in the life of Derick Dillard.

It all started, of course, when Derick got fired by TLC after harassing transgender teen and fellow network star Jazz Jennings in a bizarre Twitter tirade.

Derick Dillard and his boys on Christmas

Derick issued an explanation for his remarks that he probably thinks qualifies as an apology, but fans weren't buying it, and most seemed happy to see him go.

Earlier this week, Derick doubled down on his homophobia by promoting a speaking engagement by a pastor who became famous for his support of the abhorrent practice of conversion therapy.

It briefly seemed that Derick had taken an "in for a penny, in for a pound" approach to his own bigotry and decided that since he'd already been fired from TLC, the time was right to rebrand himself as a far-right firebrand.

Today, however, something interesting occurred on Derick's Twitter page.

Derick Dillard, Awful Haircut and Cookie Dough

"I want to personally invite any LGBTQ person & anyone else who would like to come with my family and me to church next Sunday. See you there!" Derick tweeted.

These days, it seems that Derick is supporting his family almost entirely through monetary donations from fans, so many were suspicious that the tweet was simply a publicity stunt or part of an effort to rebuild his image.

But some expressed an interest in taking him up on the invitation.

One woman identified herself as an atheist and asked if it was okay for her to attend services with Derick and his family.

The former reality star astonished many Duggar fans when he responded, "Absolutely!"

Jill Dillard and Derick

Some expressed outright shock that Derick would invite someone whose beliefs are so different from his own into his house of worship.

The mini-controversy comes on the heels of reports that Derick's wife, Jill Duggar, had turned her back on her beliefs due to an Instagram post in which she revealed that she's reading a book with sections addressed to those who are questioning their faith in God.

In the end, however, it turned out there was really nothing to either scandal.

Jill was simply offering support to those whose belief had wavered, while Derick is apparently hoping to convert some non-believers, which is actually one of the expressed duties of Independent Baptists.

Oh, well. We're sure a legitimate Derick scandal will pop up soon enough.

In the meantime, watch Counting On online for more from reality TV's most controversial family.

Adam Lind: Warrant Issued For the Arrest of Chelsea Houska’s Ex!

Adam Lind is in deep trouble these days, even by Adam Lind standards.

Lind was arrested for domestic assault back in November, and that brush with the law seems to have set Chelsea Houska's first baby daddy into a downward spiral that will likely have him serving hard time in the near future.

Adam Lind Meth

Shortly after that first incident, Lind was arrested again, this time for violating a restraining order against a second ex.

Needless to say, none of this did him any favors in his two simultaneous custody battles, particularly after it was revealed that Lind tested positive for meth just minutes before a scheduled visit with his youngest daughter.

For obvious reasons, Chelsea Houska was awarded sole custody of her daughter Aubree, a move she's no doubt very happy about in the wake of recent developments in the life of Outlaw Lind.

According to Radar Online, a warrant has been issued for Lind's arrest in response to his deadbeat ways:

“He has a warrant out for his arrest for being behind on child support,” a spokesperson for the Minnehaha County Sheriff’s Office in tells Radar. 

Adam Lind Muscles

"The warrant is for $2,025.”

Houska obviously makes much more money than Lind, whose earnings probably hover near the zero range, so not surprisingly, the payments are owed to his second baby mama, Taylor Halbur:

“He owes her over $16,000 in child support,” a source tells Radar.

“Petitioner Lind was ordered to pay child support for Paislee Lind $500 per month,” the sheriff's office spokesman confirms.

One insider adds that Lind has not only failed to pay child support, he's also made no effort to spend time with his daughters.

“He hasn’t seen Paislee since August,” that source claims.

“He doesn’t call or check in. She doesn’t even see his family.”

Adam Lind and Aubree Photo

It's not illegal to be an absentee father, but it is strange that Lind has been battling both of his exes for custody and visitation rights, even though he seems to have little interest in being involved in his daughters' lives.

“He has the potential to be a good dad when there aren’t obstacles in his way,” the source says in Lind's defense.

“At the end of the day all that matters though is his actions and his effort and it’s just not there. He only works on his cars and sleeps a lot.”

We'll believe that bit about his potential when we see it.

In the meantime, expect Lind to be taken into custody sometime very soon.

Farrah Abraham Slams Kailyn Lowry, Spencer Pratt In Bizarre Meltdown!

One never knows what to expect from Farrah Abraham.

In fact, it often seems as though Farrah herself is thoroughly surprised by the things that come out of her mouth.

Farrah Abraham Blonde Photo

Like certain White House residents, there seems to be no rhyme or reason for Farrah's behavior.

For example, why would she return to the world of sex work against her bosses' wishes when she clearly doesn't need the money?

Why would she bite the hand that feeds her by telling the whole world that she'd been fired from Teen Mom OG before the decision was even final?

And why would she now make her situation even worse by publicly attacking her co-stars, her producers, hell - even stars from other reality shows?!

We'd say only Farrah knows the answer to that question, but we highly doubt she has any idea.

Farrah Abraham Camgirl

A recent episode of Teen Mom OG showed Farrah flipping out on a producer for failing to inform her that her mother was waiting in a car parked outside her home.

Many fans pointed out that the producers are not Farrah's personal assistants, and she responded with one of her social media tirades that only fully makes sense if you're fluent in Farrah-ese:

“Fake as producing grow up and stop acting like hating on a single mother and sabotaging her life is ok because your jealous,” she wrote.

And if you think she was done there, you don't know Farrah.

This is a woman who previously accused Teen Mom of forcing women to get pregnant and using child labor.

Farrah Abraham Underwear Pic

So it's not surprising that she went after her former bosses even harder in round 2:

"The Lieing idiot 'producers' out themselves how f-cking stupid can you be!" Farrah wrote on Instagram.

"@TeenMom @MTV Like this fake scene about me from people I fired as these “producers” slander & fake lies and scenes to be around a real celebrity & epic fail @MTV @viacom Not legal, discrimination!"

Taking after her idol and possible future sugar daddy Donald Trump, Farrah then declared victory in a non-existent war:

"Moved on from this show ..never fired enjoy MTV lies their jealous and the networks shows suck #FarrahWins Viacom uses teen moms, mistreats kids."

Farrah Abraham Cries on Teen Mom OG

Later that same night, MTV aired a Teen Mom OG after-show, with Teen Mom 2 star Kailyn Lowry and noted crystal enthusiast Spencer Pratt as guests:

Spencer pointed out that Farrah mistakenly believes herself to be a "superstar," and Kailyn reminded viewers that Farrah has always been awful:

“I can’t imagine on my worst day talking to someone the way that I heard her talk," Lowry said.

“I mean, I think that’s just who Farrah is, if we’re being honest,” Kail added.

“The first time I ever met Farrah, she was, like, snapping at a driver saying ‘ándale,’ like, you don’t treat people like that.”

Lowry

Pratt then joked that he should be the one to replace Farrah after her tenure on the show finally comes to an end.

Naturally, Farrah was tuned in.

And of course, she had something to say about the interview:

"IM DONE with all the horrible mothers who don’t do shit but act like hateful zombies for production @Viacom @mtv @teenmom & @spencerpratt needy!" she tweeted.

She then zeroed in on Pratt, who recently became a father:

Spencer Pratt and Amethyst

"I feel sorry for your wife & child don’t spew lies about a single mother who is a dad & a mother #AfterShow Joke #fatherfailure already," Farrah concluded.

When Pratt pointed out that he actually didn't make any disparaging comments about Farrah, an incredible thing happened:

She actually apologized, stated that she looks forward to seeing him in LA ... and added a Celebrity Big Brother hashtag.

Folks, 2018 might soon get even more absurd.

Chip and Joanna Gaines: Did They Quit Over a Bad Contract?

Fans were shocked to learn that Fixer Upper would be ending after only 5 seasons

Rumors flew -- maybe it's because their family is still growing. Maybe it's because they wanted to work on their alleged marital troubles.

But now there's a report that might finally make all of this make sense ... despite the Gainses fervent denials.

Fixer Uppers in Texas

There's going out on a high note, and then there's canceling your show at its height of popularity.

What gives?

Well, Joanna Gaines is pregnant with her fifth child. That's a big deal for any couple on just about any show.

But if they were fine doing a show with four kids, then five wouldn't hurt, right? That would just be more Gaines family for fans to love.

Then there's the theory that they're having marital problems. Even Chip Gaines admits that their relationship has imperfections.

But they say that they aren't splitting. So why are they saying "no" to success?

Goodbye, Fixer Upper

They say that every safety rule, every regulation, every warning sign, and every contract is written based on history. On things that went wrong for one party or another.

It sounds like that extends to TV contracts, as well, because Page Six reports that Chip and Joanna are holding out for a better contract deal.

"Many years ago, when Scripps, which also owns Food Network, signed Rachael Ray, they didn’t think about Rachael starting a magazine, launching product lines, getting endorsement deals, and her books selling millions of copies."

This comes from an HGTV Network insider, folks.

"And so while Food Network turned Rachael Ray into a star, she made tens of millions and Scripps got none of it."

Some would argue that this is fair. That the network gets commercial revenue from the show itself, while Rachael Ray's other projects are her own.

Others would say that, by giving her a platform, the network deserves a piece of the pie.

"After Rachael, they made sure no talent deal would ever put them in that situation again."

Chip, Joanna

"Since the Gaineses were relatively unknown when they started, they signed the general Scripps talent contract…."

Time and time again, we've heard of unknown people with star potential signing contracts that they would later come to regret.

"The talent can’t do anything without their approval -- any appearance, any publicity, any endorsement, any product -- you have to ask them for permission."

That ... sounds like hell.

"It is awful. And on top of that, Scripps takes a big percentage of everything you make -- books, appearances, endorsements, products. If you make money, they take most of the money…."

They must feel like they're trapped. Household names, but being paid a pittance of what many would consider them worth.

"So [Chip and Joanna] are using this end of their contract as a total renegotiation to get the deal they really want: more money, less work, more control."

Joanna and Chip Gaines on TV

Apparently, the Gaineses believe that the odds are in their favor for one very good reason.

"The timing of Discovery buying Scripps worked well in their favor."

Discovery knows the value of a reality series.

"With Discovery hopefully now about to own Scripps, they are rolling the dice thinking the new owners will come running after them and give them the deal they really want."

It is a gamble, but perhaps it will pay off.

And if not, well, there are reports that the couple's been meeting with other networks to pitch a new show.

Chip and Jo

Still (as you can see in the video above), the Gaineses have denied that this is about money.

They're currently worth about $8 million each, but they suggested that they wouldn't continue at this point, even if offered a ludicrous offer.

But ... we have to consider that this could be their branding talking.

Some people find discussing money to be "vulgar," and so if they were to admit: "Hey, we're holding out for more money! Our millions aren't enough!" it might hurt their brand.

For the sake of their fans, let's hope that whatever it takes to get them back on TV happens.

Adam Levine Welcomes Baby #2 … Will He Leave The Voice?

Just a couple of days ago, Adam Levine and Behati Prinsloo welcomed the birth of their second child, a daughter with a very unique name.

Many have wondered if the demands of being a father of two young girls will finally tear him away from his swiveling chair on The Voice.

But apparently NBC is pulling out all of the stops -- and by stops we mean cash -- to entice him to stay. Will it work?

Adam Levine, Favorite Glasses Selfie

Fans rejoiced at the news that Blake Shelton and Behati Prinsloo were expecting baby #2.

Their first young daughter, Dusty, is still a very little girl, so these two sweet girls will be very close in age. Dusty Rose is, for the record, 16 months old.

And this second baby is named Geo Grace Levine.

But ... how much of their childhoods is Adam prepared to miss with his work on The Voice?

Though obviously he and Behati have the means to provide childcare for their children no matter what their schedules might be, that can mean missing valuable bonding time.

Is being on a talent competition show really worth missing your daughter's first word?

Blake Shelton and Adam Levine on The Voice

It's worth noting that a number of factors aside from fatherhood might draw Adam away from the show, and that he's not the only one.

For example, new judge Kelly Clarkson has been accused of "diva" behavior behind the scenes on The Voice. That doesn't really match her brand, but one could imagine how fame and success can go to just about anyone's head.

Then, of course, there are rumors that Blake Shelton might quit The Voice ... and reports that the Country crooner has gained an inflated sense of self-importance since going on the show, and may now believe that he's too good for it.

There have also been rumors for a while now that Blake and Adam dislike each other on a personal level, one well beyond playful rivalry for cameras.

Overall, The Voice isn't the same as it was when Levine joined it -- so why would he stay when he could be at home with his stunning wife and two beautiful daughters?

Adam Levine and Behati Prinsloo Oscars

As it turns out, the answer to that might be simple: money.

RadarOnline reports that Adam Levine has been offered a lot of money by NBC in an effort to get him to remain on The Voice.

Specifically, a massive bonus of $500,000.

That might seem like pocket change to a guy whose net worth is estimated to be somewhere in the range of $60 million.

But remember that he's believed to make somewhere from $10 million to $12 million per cycle of the show. So this is a bonus, like sprinkles on ice cream.

(We won't say icing on the cake, as cake without icing is just pointless bread)

Adam Levine and Behati Prinsloo Pic

Why are execs at NBC so desperate to keep Adam Levine that they're paying him so much?

Apparently, when word first reached fans that Adam might consider leaving the show, fans protested. In a very vocal manner.

Many longtime fans of The Voice, which has always had a rotating cast, that the show just wouldn't be the same without Adam Levine.

For what it's worth, many of them said the same about Blake Shelton. Probably a different group of fans.

The Voice's fandom sure is passionate.

Adam Levine Naked with Child, Dusty Rose Levine

Of course, not everyone has a lot of confidence in Adam Levine's fathering skills.

Recently, he was slammed for "naked time" with his young daughter.

While plenty of folks might love to be in the room with a naked Adam Levine, they point out that Dusty Rose is too old to see her father naked.

That's bordering on a taboo that exists for a very good reason, but many parents bathe with their children who are babies. It is unlikely, though possible, that Dusty will grow up remembering what her dad looks like naked.

Hopefully.

Brad Pitt: Yes, He Did Play a Role in the Justin Theroux-Jennifer Aniston Split!

Justin Theroux may be rich and famous and talented and he may even have a huge penis.

But he's also human.

He's very much capable of experiencing a feeling of jealousy, especially when he thinks his wife is not over someone else who is rich and famous and talented.

Brad Pitt and Jennifer Aniston... Together!

(And who may also have a huge penis. It has not been confirmed.)

This is all a preamble to say that new evidence has emerged which cites Brad Pitt as a basis for Theroux's marriage to Jennifer Aniston falling apart.

We know, right? How totally and completely shocking!

No one who has followed the world of celebrity gossip closely over the past decade or so could have seen this coming! 

According to Us Weekly, The Leftovers actor discovered two years ago that his wife had saved messages from her ex-husband, causing him to wonder why and prompting issues of insecurity that never really went away.

“He stumbled upon old Post-it notes Brad had written,” a source tells the tabloid. “Sweet little Post-its like, ‘You looked nice tonight’ or ‘Miss you already.’”

The insider continues:

“Jen assured him they weren’t a big deal, but Justin wasn’t thrilled … Justin had moments of insecurity like that.”

Jennifer Aniston & Justin Theroux In Happier Times

Heck, he may have had moments of insecurity just be reading the Internet, considering every other week some rumor went viral about how Jen and Brad were still in touch.

This rumors only gained momentum, too, after Pitt split from Angelina Jolie in September of 2016.

As previously reported, Aniston and Theroux announced their separation on Thursday, February 15.

They said in a joint statement at the time:

"In an effort to reduce any further speculation, we have decided to announce our separation. 

'This decision was mutual and lovingly made at the end of last year.

"We are two best friends who have decided to part ways as a couple, but look forward to continuing our cherished friendship.”

Brad Pitt & Jennifer Aniston: Married Again?!

Clearly aware that chatter such as this would quickly spread around the Web, they even added:

Normally we would do this privately, but given that the gossip industry cannot resist an opportunity to speculate and invent, we wanted to convey the truth directly.

Whatever else is printed about us that is not directly from us, is someone else’s fictional narrative.

Above all, we are determined to maintain the deep respect and love that we have for one another.

Naturally, of course, word has already gotten out that Aniston allegedly reached out to Pitt not long after her break-up went public.

Brad and Jen: Together Again!

Aniston and Pitt were considered America's Couple when they married from 2000 through 2005.

They went their separate ways after Pitt fell for Jolie, although it's never been clear whether the latter two engaged in a physical affair or merely an emotional affair prior to their official romance.

Either way, it was the biggest scandal EVER back when it went down.

Aniston went on to marry Theroux and Pitt went on to marry Jolie, with whom he shared six children.

All these years later, both those relationships have failed and here we are, actually wondering whether Aniston will get back together with Pitt.

If this happens, just prepare to experience some sparks and maybe an explosion at home.

Because the Internet WILL blow up.

Joy-Anna Duggar: Baby Name Revealed! Has She Already Given Birth?!

When a Duggar woman gives birth, it's always a big deal for the family's legion of devoted fans.

But it looks as though Joy-Anna Duggar may have recently tried - and failed - to keep some major baby news from going public.

Joy-Anna on Counting On

As you may already know, rumors that Joy-Anna got pregnant before her wedding to Austin Forsyth have been running rampant in recent months.

Even some of the most devout Duggar loyalists began to believe the reports of a "shotgun wedding" thanks to a series of suspicious developments:

Joy-Anna and Austin Forsyth moved their wedding date up several months without warning; the Duggars refused to acknowledge the rumors in any way; doctors who examined photos of Joy stated that she appeared much further along than she claimed...

Needless to say, there was plenty of reason to believe that Joy wasn't being totally forthcoming with fans.

Throughout her pregnancy, conspiracy-minded fans assured themselves that the truth would come out when Joy finally gave birth.

Joy-Anna Duggar Due Date Photo

But now there's reason to believe that the Duggars may be attempting to mislead fans by keeping the birth under wraps and making the announcement on what would have been Joy's due date had she actually gotten pregnant on her honeymoon like she claimed.

According to recent changes to Joy's Wikipedia page, she has already given birth to a little girl named Julie.

Fans understandably freaked out over the news, and the changes were quickly deleted.

It's important to note that the edits may have been some rogue fan's idea of a joke.

But it's also worth noting that if the new information was accurate, then the Duggars would have made certain it was promptly removed.

Obviously, at this point, it's tough to determine what exactly happened.

Joy-Anna Duggar Pregnancy Photo

We'll play it safe and say we wouldn't be surprised if it turned out to be a fan hoax, and we also wouldn't be surprised if the Joy has already given birth, and her family is keeping it under wraps.

Whatever the case, you can expect some Joy-ous baby news in the very near future.

Joy stated on Valentine's day that she's expected to deliver before the end of the month.

So congrats to the happy couple either way!

And way to keep the "J" name trend going!

Selena Gomez: PREGNANT With Justin Bieber’s Baby?

Poor Mandy Teefey. If Selena Gomez's mom was hospitalized over Selena getting back together with Justin Bieber, we can only imagine how she'll respond to this news.

Honestly, this could leave a lot of fans divided. Or disappointed.

A new report claims that Selena Gomez is pregnant and that Justin Bieber is the baby daddy.

Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez in 2011

So, Justin and Selena took a trip to Laguna Beach earlier in February. NW claims that this is when the couple bonded over some big news.

"The word is that Selena is pregnant and told Justin as much during their trip."

That would be some major news to break.

"Justin wasn’t expecting it, but he’s ecstatic about it. It’s a dream come true."

if he wanted Selena back for good, getting her pregnant sure might work.

"Pals say they’ve been casual with contraception because they are both keen to make this happen at some point."

Selena Gomez for Coach

The report goes on to claim that this is more or less an act of providence.

"They know there’s never going to be a perfect time, so they’ve been putting their faith in God’s hands."

That claim ties in to Selena's idea that God blesses her reunion with the Biebs and with Justin recently ending his tour to spend more time at church.

The report suggests that this accident was a happy one.

"This is something they both want."

They're both at odd places in their lives to have a kid, so that's ... an interesting claim.

"Selena has always liked the idea of being a young mum and Justin is desperate to settle down."

Justin Bieber on the Beach

There were even claims that Selena is following a safe pregnancy checklist, "steering clear of alcohol, sushi, and soft cheeses to be safe."

(Those would be pretty standard precautions for a pregnant woman, and match up with Kim Kardashian's surrogate's dietary restrictions)

And then there's Bieber's side, with claims that he's "started following pregnancy accounts on Instagram and posed for photos with a fan’s baby while out in L.A."

Justin Bieber follows all kinds of accounts, folks. Also, he's been posing with babies for years.

Babies are cute. They're not, um, evidence of more babies.

Selena Gomez at Her Childhood Home

In real life, Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez have been in Jamaica for Justin's dad's wedding.

And Gossip Cop reports that, also in real life, Selena is not pregnant with Justin's baby. And probably not with anyone's.

The timing for this wouldn't be great, right?

Justin only recently managed to get out of what was reportedly a life-threatening substance abuse issue.

His own manager feared that he would die, just a few years ago, if he went on tour.

In the mean time, Selena Gomez received a kidney transplant just last year. It saved her life but did not cure her Lupus.

Until very recently, doctors discouraged women with Lupus from getting pregnant, due to risks to their lives and their baby's. Now, those risks are lower.

But given the severity of Selena's health battle, some wonder if a pregnancy would be a fatal mistake.

Justin Bieber, Shirtless Tattoos

Now whatever you may think of Selena falling back into bad habits by dating a man some might characterize as an inked trash gremlin who's not even hot anymore, we should remember:

That's her choice.

Fans don't have to agree with her love life.

But everyone can breathe a sigh of relief with the report that Selena is not pregnant. Those who admire her music, her acting, and her as a person want her to be around and healthy for a long, long time.

Travis Scott to Kylie Jenner: Do NOT Put Our Daughter on TV!

Despite some early rumors that Travis Scott dumped Kylie Jenner shortly after she gave birth, it seems that against all odds, the couple is actually making their relationship work.

Of course, that doesn't mean there haven't been some major rough patches along the way.

Kylie Jenner and Travis Scott... Together!

The latest has been the result of Scott's feud with Kris Jenner.

You might think that Kris would take issue with Travis getting her daughter pregnant at the ripe old age of 20, but no...

It seems the real reason the momager is upset is classic Kris.

To the surprise of exactly no one except Travis, Kris plans on making little Stormi Webster a reality star.

But it seems Scott has the wild idea that children should hold off on becoming international celebrities at least until they hit pre-k.

“Travis is happy that Stormi has so many advantages out of the gate being the daughter of two high-profile parents, but his wish is that she has as much of a normal life as possible in the celebrity bubble she is in," a source tells Hollywood Life.

"That is why he would love for Stormi never to be on TV but he knows that the likelihood of that happening is pretty much impossible."

So at least he's come to terms with the fact that his daughter will have 40 million Instagram followers before she starts teething.

But Travis is still anticipating some conflicts when the Jenners finally decide to make Stormy a star:

“Its something that is not causing friction with Kylie yet, but it’s definitely been conversed about on many occasions because they both have different ideas of how they want to parent," the insider says.

"So time will tell if it reaches a boiling point. But as of right now Travis would love nothing more than to never see Stormi on camera anytime soon," adds the source.

"He wants her to be a kid.”

Oh, Travis. You poor, naive soul.

In Kris Jenner's world, kids who aren't realizing their full potential as social media influencers are just wastes of breast milk.

We'd be more sympathetic to your plight, but like - you did watch the show before you get Kylie pregnant, right?

If not, you're in for some major surprises. 

Joy-Anna Duggar Pregnancy Post: Life Begins at Birth!

The Duggars have gotten a lot of criticism over the years. For Michelle Duggar being a neglectful parent. For their fringe fundamentalist views on everything. For their children being uneducated "clones" of their beliefs.

But no one has ever realistically questioned whether the Duggar family is 100% anti-abortion.

Until now, that is. Diehard fans are questioning their views after being alarmed by the language used in a recent Duggar post.

Jim Bob, Michelle on Facebook

Joy-Anna and Austin Forsyth may never address the shotgun wedding rumors -- at least, that's how some fans are feeling.

Some believe that they're not trying to clear the air because the story is true and they're ashamed of doing the natural and healthy activity that almost every couple in the country does.

Others believe that they're not speaking about it directly because they don't want to give any weight to a false rumor. Perhaps they fear that if they shoot down one rumor, they'll be expected to respond to them all.

A more moderate view might be that Joy-Anna and Austin are biding their time and seeing when Joy-Anna gives birth. If it's late enough, it might look like "evidence" that the couple waited until their wedding night.

The touchy subject of Joy-Anna's due date was what brought about this post, which shocked numerous Duggar fans:

On the Duggar family's official Facebook page, they wrote:

"Joy and Austin will soon be parents! Anybody have a guess when baby will be here?"

They then wrote:

"When it comes to arrival, these babies make up their own minds!"

On the surface, this is just a post about a pregnant Duggar daughter.

Dig slightly deeper, and it's a set-up to give a plausible explanation if (or when) Joy-Anna gives birth earlier than her wedding date would "allow."

But did you notice the unexpected language from the Duggars? These fans did, and they were shocked.

One diehard Duggar fan commented:

"They are already parents! They've been parents since conception, because that's when life begins! (Just like to point that out, because life-affirming language is super important - and I know your family agrees on the sanctity of life!)"

That comment then continued, with some odd capitalizatin and hyphenation.

"God bless! Pregnancy is such a special time with Baby and so is birth! Praying for Baby and Mama on your upcoming big day! Have a very Happy Birth-day!"

Other commenters echoed the sentiment, "correcting" the Duggars.

"Life begins at conception."

And another:

"Human life begins before one has a heartbeat; of course, even if it didn’t, they’d still have been parents since nearly conception. Nothing controversial about that. It’s encouraging, actually."

Austin Forsyth, Joy-Anna Duggar

So, to the anti-abortion crowd, the Duggars were odd to suggest that Joy-Anna isn't already a mother.

By their beliefs, she's been a mother since conception.

The Duggars haven't been shy about mourning miscarriages with grave markers, as they might if a baby had died. (Which is totally their choice, folks -- everyone has a right to grieve a loss in their own way)

Fans have noted the family's apparent hypocrisy, grieving Jubilee while seeming to forget Caleb Duggar by calling Jubilee their "20th child."

And one commenter referred to that under the post about Joy-Anna and Austin.

"The Duggars are very pro-life. They turn up to abortion clinics and hold signs on the street. They choose to tell everyone else what should be considered life and then ignore one of the 'lives' they created. It’s hypocritical."

Austin, Joy

But perhaps whether or not Jim Bob and Michelle mention one child they never got to meet or another is beside the point.

For the Duggars to use the language that they did is odd for pro-life activists who usually use language designed to reinforce the idea that a fetus is a person already.

Were they just ... tired? Did they task some intern or family friend to make the post on their behalf?

Who knows.

Fans can all agree that, for most families, the language used to describe Joy-Anna's upcoming maternity wouldn't be unusual.

But surely the entire world can agree that the Duggars are not most families.

Derick Dillard’s Homophobia Sinks to New Low, Even For Him

Remember when Derick Dillard was fired by TLC for making bigoted comments on Twitter?

Well, apparently he doesn't!

Derick Dillard, Awful Haircut and Cookie Dough

Or at the very least he remains totally unconcerned with the effect his views might have on his career and public reputation.

Earlier this week, Derick took to social media to promote a speaking engagement by Ricky Chelette a controversial preacher who's a big proponent of the appalling practice of attempting to turn gay teens straight through "conversion therapy."

"Tomorrow night we will have an opportunity to hear from Rickey Chelette on same-sex attraction," Derick wrote.

"7:30 pm in the Arvest Building!"

Fans were quick to remind Derick of what a widely-reviled figure Chelette is.

One fan commented, "Isn't this the 'pray away the gay' guy???"

Derick typically isn't one to shy away from conflict, but he's been doing his best to dodge questions about Chelette's more revolting beliefs:

"Our church invites ALL to come. I’m open to all who would join our family," he replied to one fan.

Yes, the Duggars invite "ALL to come."

So stay tuned for next week's keynote address from Rupaul.

Here's the thing:

Jill Dillard and Derick

It's easy for Derick to be glib about his beliefs now, when he still has a bank account full of reality star money.

But soon enough, the Dillards will be 100% reliant on donations from fans in order to keep food on the table.

They already lost a lot of followers thanks to Derick's transphobic views, and now he's doubling down and alienating what few faithful fans he has left.

The Duggars have always espoused abhorrent views, but they're usually more social media savvy than this.

If he keeps this up, Derick may soon suffer a fate worse than being exiled like the Duggars eldest son, Josh.

That's right: he will soon be forced to get ... a real job!!!

Paris Jackson & Cara Delevingne: Dating?!

Paris Jackson is generally pretty awesome, but she has a history of dating people who seem to suck.

Granted we don't know her past dudes, but fans were understandably pretty upset when it looked as though Paris was dating a white supremacist last year.

Needless to say, those same folks will likely be pleasantly surprised by news of Cara's latest relationship:

Paris Jackson, Cara Delevingne Photo

According to Radar Online, Paris is dating Cara Delevingne, the model and actress who, judging from her Instagram page, is friends with just about every cool famous person on the planet.

Paris and Cara (or Caris, if you prefer) were spotted holding hands last night at a party in London.

Radar reports that they were seen leaving the venue at around 5:30 am, which makes us exhausted just thinking about it.

It's not the first time that rumors of Paris and Cara hooking up have made their way around social media.

The reaction from Paris' devoted fanbase has mostly been one of tremendous joy.

And it's not hard to see why.

After a rough patch that led to Paris attempting suicide and a string of bad relationships, here she is dating a beloved model and lauded social activist.

Unfortunately, there are at least two members of Paris' inner circle who are reportedly less than pleased about her new relationship.

her grandparents, Katherine and Joe Jackson, are very religious, very old-fashioned, and apparently, very displeased by news of Paris and Cara's romance.

"Katherine and Joe are not big fans of being openly bisexual," a source tells the site.

"She has been outspoken about her bisexuality and this is no surprise to anyone who knows her, but her family is having a hard time accepting it."

The insider says the elder Jacksons have been clear about their concern for Paris' immortal soul:

"Joe and Katherine are so religious and they believe that Paris' desire for women will to a life in hell for her," the source claims.

"Katherine was always trying to steer her away from the ladies," the insider adds.

"She was really hoping that this was just a phase Paris was going through."

Doesn't look like it, Katherine!

Katherine Heigl Bravely Shares Post-Baby Weight Loss Journey

On Tuesday, December 20th of 2016, Katherine Heigl welcomed the birth of her third baby with husband John Kelley.

The couple had already adopted two children, but baby number three presented a couple of new challenges -- childbirth and that post-baby body.

Heigl has now shared her weight loss journey with some starkly honest underwear photos. Take a look!

Katherine Heigl at the 2014 Emmys

"It’s been almost 14 months since Joshua Jr was born and it has taken me about that long to really get back in shape," she writes in her captions.

Describing a three-part image (below), she continues.

"The first pic was taken one month after he was born."

She still looks great, but it's clearly no secret that she'd recently given birth.

"The second pic was taken almost a full year later."

Which was really not that many weeks ago -- her little baby only turned one year old in December.

"And the last pic was taken this weekend."

And here is this series of photos:

Katherine Heigl, Post-Baby Weight Loss

She laments that she didn't have more photos for her weight loss collage.

"I wish I had a few from in between the first and second so you could really see how slow my progress was but alas...I was busy covering it all up those months, not posing in my unders!"

Understandable.

"Anyway, I have a beach vacation coming up, a new job I start filming in April and my deep desire to feel fit, strong, and sexy propelling me forward the last two months to finally [lose] the last of my baby weight."

Sometimes, you just need that extra piece of motivation. Professional motivation can do that.

But she had more on her mind than just losing fat.

"And do a deep dive search for the ab muscles I knew were buried under that belly somewhere!"

She talks about her secret.

"I was wholly and totally inspired by Miss @rachparcell and the before and after pics she shared after taking the #bbg challenge. I had never heard of it but she looked so damn great (she had her baby just a few months before me) that I had to check it out."

Note that she's writing B-B-G, not B-B-Q, in case you for one blissful moment allowed yourself to dream that her weight loss secret involved eating barbeque.

"I found a fantastic app called #sweat that features several different #bbg programs you can choose from and makes it incredibly easy to do anywhere, which for me means in my bedroom at home!"

That's such an unpleasant name for an app but, hey, if you're serious about weight loss, you're likely to sweat during the process.

"I won’t lie, the workouts are real ass kickers but the progress I’ve made in only 5 short weeks has kept me motivated and inspired to keep going!"

She talks about the success that she's found.

"I am so grateful I’ve had a full year to find those ab muscles and get my butt back up where it belongs."

Having that time is good for your body -- swinging back and forth between extremes may be impressive, but it's not healthy.

"And wasn’t forced by work to snap back into shape but it is time to make the strength, fitness, and overall health of my body a priority."

Again she gives a shoutout:

"And I am so grateful that @rachparcell shared her story and got this mama motivated!"

For years, Katherine Heigl has had a reputation -- that she's difficult to work with on set.

More recently, however, many have begun to question whether that reputation was unfairly earned -- especially after people found out about unpleasant working environments in Hollywood and beyond.

So maybe some folks judged her too harshly.

Regardless of your opinion of her, however, it's wonderful that she's shared what worked for her and helped her to get the body that she wants.

Tia Booth: Will I Be The Bachelorette? Well …

Maybe you're completely hooked on Arie's season of The Bachelor ... or whether you're just watching to see if The Bachelor Spoilers hold true.

Either way, you had to be captivated by Tia Booth's heartbroken farewell and her deeply emotional exit.

In the video below, she's opening up about that experience, everything that she said, and ... whether she would star on The Bachelorette if asked. Her answer was refreshingly honest.

Tia booth considers

Tia Booth won over many fans with her Arkansas charm.

If you read our The Bachelor recap, you know that Arie's narrowed down his choices to the final three.

Before that, however, it was time for hometown dates.

Everyone's families tend to have concerns, but Tia's families had done a little internet sleuthing (okay, you don't really need to be a sleuth to type Arie Luyendyk Jr's name into the search bar), and found out about Arie's reputation.

As a playboy. As a womanizer. As possibly someone who's on the show to improve his brand rather than to find love.

(Do you think that they read that Arie is allegedly great in bed?)

In the end, though, Arie was able to charm Tia's concerned loved ones and assure them that he's not some sort of snake in the grass.

Tia booth cries

Tia's family may have accepted Arie, but Arie sent Tia packing. Her sobs really tugged at your heartstrings.

Because rumors have been mounting that Arie has broken off his engagement already, maybe it's a good thing that Tia got her heart broken here and now.

A devastated Tia moved audiences with her tears as she said farewell to Arie Luyendyk Jr.

And then, in the car, she admits that she's tired of feeling like she isn't good enough.

So ... how's she feeling now that the dust has settled?

Tia booth rose

Speaking to Entertainment Tonight, Tia Booth says that she'd jump at the chance to become the leading lady on The Bachelorette.

"I think it would be an amazing experience getting to be the Bachelorette and to get to meet some amazing men."

A lot of people are coy about their desire to fill that roll. Not Tia.

Good for her.

She also says that it would probably present different but interesting challenges.

"I know it would be tough, but I would kinda be in control and in charge."

Tia booth and arie luyendyk jr

She thinks that she could really benefit from being the Bachelorette.

"I think it would be another learning and growing experience, and I'm all for that."

She has the same rationale for being all for that experience as she did for going on The Bachelor, pretty much.

"Thirty years from now, I don't want to say, 'Well, I turned that down because I was scared or nervous.'"

Hey, that's a great way to live if you want to seek out new experiences.

Tia booth confessional

Even if Tia doesn't end up becoming the leading lady, we could still see more of her and her journey for love.

"I would love to be in Paradise. I would love to continue on this Bachelor journey."

More than many, she knew what she was getting into before the joined the show, since Raven Gates had already been on that adventure.

Even if Tia isn't the next Bachelorette, Arie Luyendyk Jr. is evidence that she could always be called back -- even years from now.

Here's the video of her interview:
