Jessica Eason Arrested "For Being a Crackhead," David Eason Claims

The feud between Jenelle Evans and Jessica Eason -- the sister of Jenelle's troglodyte husband, David Eason -- has been both very entertaining and very, very sad.

It's entertaining because both parties are pretty much equally awful, so it's a joy every time one of them makes life slightly more miserable for the other.

But it's sad because both Jenelle and Jessica have young children at home, and having moms who can't seem to stay out of jail can't be good for these kids' psyches.

We don't need to tell you that Jenelle has been arrested more times than the entire roster of the 1986 Mets.

But you might not have known that Jessica is giving Jenelle a run for her money in the rap sheet department.

Yes, like her deplorable older brother, Jessica Eason gets arrested with about the same frequency that most people fill their gas tanks.

Usually, the charges are drug-related, but like Jenelle, she likes to mix things up with an assault here and there.

Jessica's latest brush with the law came when she arrived in court to address a prior arrest.

It seems she was searched upon her arrival, which was a problem, as Jessica plum forgot she had drugs in her pocket.

Jessica was cuffed and thrown in jail on charges of felony possession of a Schedule II controlled substance.

The folks at Starcasm point out that Schedule II narcotics include "opium, opium extracts – fluid and powder, codeine, hydrocodone, morphine, methadone, methamphetamine, Ritalin, and Adderall."

Jessica spent the weekend behind bars but was released Monday morning on $5,000 bond.

The 38-year-old has been keeping a relatively low profile ever since.

Remarkably, Jenelle hasn't addressed the arrest either, so you can be sure she's currently composing the roast of the century.

But David is still unemployed, and he appears to have all the time in the world on his hands, so it wasn't long before he took to Facebook to sound off:

"For all you HATERS who listen to Jess' bullsh-t, here she is in county jail on charges of being a crackhead," he wrote.

"This is why she makes up lies and slander about me because nobody will help her support her drug habit. I don't associate with drug addicts no matter if they're family or not, they can never be trusted!"

Compassionate stuff.

Jess still hasn't posted one of the big public statements she's known for, but she did address the arrest by replying to a tweet about David's remarks:

"I had adderall in my pocket instead of in it's original container," she wrote.

"I have to show proof in court today. That's it!! Unlike him and his nasty bitch of a wife! Im not defending him anymore. That's it! Grow up David!"

Classy stuff with this family, as always.

Watch Teen Mom 2 online to remind yourself of the many ways in which Jenelle and David are just the worst.

Prince Harry CALLED HIS EX Right Before the Royal Wedding!!!

In case you've spent the past week on Mars, living in a cave with really crappy wi-fi, allow us to bring you up to speed on recent events on this planet:

Prince Harry married Meghan Markle at Windsor Castle, and ... well, that's just about it for good news, so why don't we just leave it there?

Markle Waves

Yes, the royal wedding had something for everyone, including a few unexpected surprises.

(The sight of a bunch of stuffy Brits attempting to pretend they weren't freaked out by the fiery sermonizing of Michael Curry was worth waking up for on its own.)

Of course, the one person you don't want to surprise on the day of a wedding is the bride.

So hopefully everyone agreed to wait until the honeymoon to break it to Meghan that Harry rang up his most recent ex, Chelsy Davy, just a few days before the wedding.

Yes, not only did Harry give Chelsy a call, the conversation got so emotional that she ended up in tears, wondering aloud if she should attend the ceremony at all.

Chelsy Davy, Blue Dress

“It was their final call, a parting call in which they both acknowledged Harry was moving on," a source close to the situation tells Elle.

"Chelsy was quite emotional about it all, she was in tears and almost didn’t go to the wedding. In the end, she went and promised Harry she wouldn’t try and gatecrash the party.”

Yes, it seems Chelsy was invited to the ceremony, but not the "more intimate" reception that followed.

And she probably made the right call by not busting through the door and giving a sloppy-ass toast.

As insulting as it is to be invited to the ceremony but not the reception ("Oh, so I have to bring a gift, but I can't take advantage of the open bar? Neat!"), crashing a party thrown by the royal family is probably not a good idea.

People have been beheaded for less.

Royal Party Time

And how did Meghan feel about all this?

She's pretty much the first royal in history that could accurately be described as "chill," so she was probably relatively cool about the whole thing.

Still, her position must have been a little uncomfortable, as it's not like Chelsy was just some fling from Harry's past.

Harry and Chelsy broke up in 2011 after seven years of on and off dating, but they attempted to rekindle their romance in 2015 - just a few months before Harry met Meghan.

Apparently, it was Chelsy who broke it off (!!!) after deciding she wasn't cut out for such a public life.

It seems she missed quite a party, as the royal reception included dance competitions and beer pong.

Unfortunately, it was the last fun Meghan will ever be permitted to enjoy.

You dodged a bullet, Chelsy.

Shannon Beador: Reality TV Is Screwing Up My Relationship!

Shannon Beador is in the middle of a messy, contentious divorce, but she also has a new boyfriend.

While she wants to ban David Beador from appearing on The Real Housewives of Orange County, fans would love to see her new romance captured by Bravo's cameras.

But apparently, fans won't be seeing her new love on TV. Here's why:

Shannon Beador Selfie

According to RadarOnline, Shannon Beador is very aware that everything about her, her life, her family, and her acrimonious divorce are under a microscope.

"Every single aspect of Shannon’s life is on public display."

That goes with the territory of being a reality star.

But while she's mostly okay with it, she is seeking to keep her new boyfriend, Alex, off-screen.

"So she wanted this to just be between the two of them."

That is absolutely understandable.

Shannon Beador and Boyfriend Alex

Shannon, the report says, is not the only one who feels this way.

"And Alex agreed."

In fact, it sounds like this was as much his wish as hers.

"He doesn’t want to be on camera."

Not everyone is cut out for a life as a reality star.

"And neither of them are interested in him appearing on RHOC."

That's good. Besides, Shannon has plenty of storyline without him.

Shannon Beador and Daughters, 2018

That said, though Shannon's family and divorce and weight loss journey and friendships will probably be the focus, we can expect to at least hear about him.

"Shannon does talk about Alex and references her newfound relationship on the upcoming season."

That's good. Fans will want to stay updated and we're sure that she wants to share. Just ... up to a point.

"She is keeping him to herself right now and is keeping their relationship out of the spotlight."

That is totally fair.

"The two of them are very happy together and are quite serious already."

Reports say that he has even met her daughters. It sounds like they're really getting along well.

"They just complement each other very well."

Shannon Beador and David Beador, Selfie

We should note that David got himself a hot, younger girlfriend several months ago.

Some wonder if Shannon may end up getting into trouble, as her fellow Real Housewife, Kenya Moore (of RHOA), did.

See, Kenya married her husband, Marc Daly, in secret. She did not tell anyone or invite Bravo's cameras.

Not only did she force the cameras to miss this major life milestone, but Marc refused to appear on camera.

For an entire season, she seemed to be on the brink of losing her job. (Marc actually changed his mind and surprised her with an on-air appearance)

Will Shannon repeat that mistake?

Well ... probably not. Right now, she and Alex are still dating. Bravo's cameras don't have to capture every aspect of your life.

If she and Alex get engaged, then yes, they will have to talk about him appearing on the show.

Shannon Beador Rocking Out

(This might be our favorite photo of Shannon. The context, in which she was on a date with Alex to see a Poison concert, doesn't matter)

We're glad that Shannon is finding happiness and we of course wish her the best in this new relationship.

As fans learn more and more about David Beador's cruel treatment of Shannon, they're happier about the couple's divorce.

But it sounds like it's going to be a long fight. Remember, David reportedly had the water turned off at her house out of spite, and is said to have yelled obscenities at her in the courthouse.

We hope that this time with Alex can give her the happiness that she deserves.

Kendra Caldwell Scandal: Is Her Sister SECRETLY Dating a Duggar?!

If you follow the Duggar family closely, then you're likely aware Joseph Duggar married Kendra Caldwell last year in front of about a thousand of the couple's closest friends.

In most respects, it was the typical Duggar wedding - a chaste, dry affair attended by just about every fundamentalist in a hundred-mile radius.

Kendra Caldwell, Joe Duggar Wedding Photo

But in one very scandalous respect, Joseph and Kendra were entered uncharted territory when they said "I do."

The problem, it seems, is that Joseph is not the first Duggar to catch Kendra's eye.

No, before she began her relationship with Joe, Kendra was courted by Jedidiah Duggar.

Someone (read: Jim Bob) decided that Kendra was better suited to Jed's older brother, Joseph.

Apparently, they hit it off, because these days, Kendra is pregnant with Joseph's baby.

So the situation worked out for everyone ... except poor Jed.

Jim Bob was then left with a disgruntled incel son, and naturally, he decided to appease the 19-year-old with a comely maiden.

Jedediah Duggar

Of course, the Duggars live in the middle of nowhere and fundamentalist virgins of virtue true can be hard to come by.

Which is why many fans believe that Jim Bob has returned to familiar hunting grounds and set Jed's sights on Kendra's younger sister, Lauren Caldwell, who just turned 18 this month.

Lauren has reportedly been in attendance at recent family gatherings, which wouldn't be that strange on its own.

After all, her sister recently married into the Counting On clan.

But as commentators in the Duggar-focused corners of Reddit have pointed out, it's a bit strange that Lauren started showing up so soon after her 18th birthday.

In a conversation about which one of the Duggar men will end up with Lauren, the majority of the votes went to Jed:

"Jedidiah. He couldn't get Kendra so he'd probably go after her younger sister," one user commented, as In Touch Weekly points out.

Jedidiah and Jeremiah

But there was some dissent among the ranks:

"Not sure who, but she will be a Duggar because her teeth are nice and straight and she has fundie hair! She is in for sure," another wrote.

A third had a different theory altogether:

"Lately how all the older guys keep getting with barely-legal girls, I'm gonna say JD."

Since there have been rumors that John David is secretly courting, we suppose that's a possibility, but the ten-year-age difference likely wouldn't fly with Duggar fans.

We'll keep an eye on the situation, but for now, just expect a Jed-Lauren courtship announcement n the very near future.

Lenny Dykstra Arrested For Assault, Possession, Being Lenny Dykstra

Perhaps you haven't been keeping up on the post-retirement antics of former baseball semi-great Lenny "Nails" Dykstra.

So allow us to fill you in with the breathless glee of someone bringing you up to speed on the world's most bonkers reality show.

Lenny Dykstra Back in the Day

Basically, imagine a form of batsh-t behavior and ya boy Lenny D has done it twice and bragged about it on social media.

Random feud with Lena Dunham?

Did it and then tried to have sex with her.

Accusing Charlie Sheen of murder?

You better believe it happened and that every hard drug under the sun was involved.

That last story left us with the impression that the 55-year-old chewing tabacky enthusiast's most depraved days were behind him.

But just as we were beginning to give up hope, Nails went ahead and out-Nailsed himself.

Lenny Dykstra Mug Shot

That's Lenny's latest mug shot, taken Wednesday after he was investigated for allegedly assaulting an Uber driver:

Dykstra was eventually charged with making terroristic threats, as well as possession of cocaine, marijuana, and MDMA.

So either police searched him, or they just casually asked, "What's in ya pockets today, Lenny?" as soon as they arrived on the scene.

The driver told police that Dykstra put a gun to his head, but no weapon was recovered at the scene.

Dykstra denied the allegations in the sort of profanity-laced tirade that appears to be his sole means of communication:

"The guy went nuclear on me," he told the New York Daily News

"He f--king kidnapped me and almost killed me going 100 mph. He locked me in his f--king car, and he wouldn't let me out."

Lenny Dykstra Picture

Hilariously, Dykstra later brushed off the charges on Twitter by quoting Taylor Swift:

“But I keep cruising, can’t stop, won’t stop moving. It’s like I got this music in my mind, sayin’ gonna be alright,” he wrote.

This latest arrest, of course, is far from Dykstra's first brush with the law.

He was sentenced to six and a half months in federal prison in December 2012 after pleading guilty to bankruptcy fraud, concealment of assets and money laundering. 

That same year, Dykstra was sentenced to three years behind bars after pleading no contest to three counts of grand theft auto and filing a false police statement.

The prison sentences ran concurrently and Dykstra was released in June of 2013.

Sadly, he went right back to being Lenny Dykstra.

No word yet on whether or not Dykstra is facing more prison time, but we'll keep you posted as more ridiculous details emerge.

Caitlyn Jenner: My Own Family Barely Speaks to Me

Though Caitlyn Jenner has come to realize that Trump is "the worst ever" for trans rights, she alienated a number of members of the transgender community with her support for him in 2016.

She also isolated herself from members of her own family. Tell-all books do not make for friendly family dinners.

Now, in a newly published interview, Cait discusses the distances from her children, and her regrets and mistakes as an activist.

kardashian body guess 46

In a lengthy and newly published interview with Broadly, Caitlyn

"I spend a lot of time by myself here in the house."

We should note that the actual interview took place last autumn. Which was before Cait began to seem inseparable from rumored girlfriend Sophia Hutchins.

"I have a lot of children, but sometimes just because of circumstances, maintaining a close relationship with your kids is very tough."

She has six children, including Kylie and Kendall. She also played a parental role with the Kardashian children, so one could argue that she has ten children.

"They all have lives. They've all moved on."

Things between Cait and her erstwhile stepchildren have turned downright hostile.

And though she still has a relationship with some, like Kylie and Kendall, they're adults doing their own things.

Caitlyn Jenner and Sophia Hutchins

Cait waxes philosophical about existence and life itself.

"We're just human beings; we're going to be here for a very short time."

Ultimately, she hopes to have strong relationships with her loved ones that last until the end of her life.

"We come and we go and at the end, when it's all said and done, hopefully your family is going to be there."

It only recently came to life that Caitlyn at one time considered suicide.

In this interview, Cait reveals that she had thought about her eventual death, and, long before she ever publicly came out as trans, had considered a stipulation in her will that she be buried in what society considers to be 'women's clothes."

Now, that would no longer be a shock. But Cait does share what she expects -- or at least, hopes for -- when she, as a Christian, one day dies.

"I hope when I get up there to the pearly gates, God looks down and says, ‘You did a good damn job, you won the Games, raised wonderful children, and you know, you made a difference in the world. Yeah, come on in.’ That’s the way I want to go."

Caitlyn Jenner and Kendall Jenner

The subject of Cait's conflicts within the trans community -- her interviewer herself was trans, and knows this struggle from the inside -- absolutely comes up.

Cait does acknowledge that she made some mistakes after coming out.

"But I never did it maliciously. I just didn't know, you know?"

She also admits that, particularly after the initial widespread support that she received after coming out, she was not prepared for the criticisms from trans people.

"And I really didn't realize how critical the community was going to be."

It's appropriate that this interview is coming out now, just days after her major conflict with a trans advocate and model went public in a big way.

Carmen Carrera

After Carmen Carrera spoke out about Cait on TMZ, Caitlyn texted her -- which we know because Carmen revealed those texts in a now-deleted Instagram post.

Cait wrote to her, saying:

"Instead of putting negative things out in the press, about me, which hurts what I’m doing, you should be aware of what I’m actually doing. Call me and I’ll give you an update."

Carmen's reply was ... not friendly.

"Although I’m happy someone has knocked some sense into you, please don’t forget about how I came to you with ideas of moving this movement outwards and you said you’d help but you never did."

Carmen did make an offer for how they could make nice, but apparently did not receive a reply.

"If you’d like to have dinner to apologize and make it up to me, lets do it. Less talking, more doing."

It was then Cait's gal pal, Sophia Hutchins, who told Carmen that she had "burned a bridge" with Cait.

Sophia Hutchins Bikini Photo

In addition to sharing those texts, Carmen wrote about how she met and offered support to Cait before Caitlyn's big reveal as a trans woman.

"What I found was this lady’s ego is way too big for no reason and she’s the most selfish person I’ve ever met."

That goes hand in hand with how many people view Cait. She may be marginalized as a trans woman, but she's still rich white conservative woman who may have trouble empathizing with people whose lives are so very different from her own.

"She even told me to my face that she 'wanted to be #1,' whatever that means. Doing humanitarian work means you have to actually be a human."

Ouch.

"Honestly, what does she actively do everyday for trans folks? And why does she take credit for what real activists are doing?"

Those are some solid questions. 

Sophia Hutchins and Caitlyn Jenner, Golfing

Carmen then calls Cait's qualifications into account.

"Who even is she?.. A retired athletic hero turned background reality star, who is now stealing credit from the already disenfranchised trans community all for her own public benefit?"

That ... isn't the least accurate characterization of Caitlyn that we've seen.

"Be who you really are instead of who you think you need to be to gain more popularity. I will not let you take advantage of my people."

Carmen's very public post then ends with a jab at Cait and Sophia:

"Also, since you’re too much of a coward to communicate, please do not send your sidekick to handle your dirty work. She’s just as fake as you are. @hutchins_sophia"

Caitlyn Jenner on Insta

We can all observe that Caitlyn has alienated herself from both many trans activists and other members of the LGBT+ community and from many members of her own family.

But it's worth noting that her biggest fear for decades, that she would be rejected because she is a trans woman, did not come true.

Instead, people are wary of her for her political actions and statements and, in the case of her family, for what they perceive to be betrayals.

You don't write a tell-all book without facing some personal consequences, folks.

Kailyn Lowry: Did She Cheat On Her Ex-Girlfriend With Javi Marroquin?!

If you're a fan of Teen Mom 2, then you're no doubt aware that the relationship between Kailyn Lowry and Javi Marroquin is ... complicated, to say the very least.

Kailyn and Javi finalized their divorce back in 2016, but they've been unable to keep their distance from one another for a number of reasons.

For starters, they have a child together, 4-year-old Lincoln, and they're still co-stars on the reality show that made them both famous.

On top of that, Kailyn and Javi have tried to reconcile on at least one occasion, and they're still dealing with the fallout.

Just this week, for example, Kailyn's ex-girlfriend, Dominique Potter, made the stunning claim that she was dating Kail at the time of Lowry's latest hookup with Javi.

Yes, things are getting messy over on Teen Mom Twitter - and they may soon get even worse.

1. Kail and Dom

Kailyn lowry with dominique potter
Late last year, Kailyn entered a relationship with a longtime friend named Dominique Potter.

2. Moving Quickly

Lowry and Potter knew one another for several years before they began dating, but once their relationship was official, they began to move at breakneck speed.

3. Making Moves

Not long after the couple went public with their relationship, Dominique posted this photo on Instagram, along with a caption explaining that she had recently moved to Delaware in order to be closer to Kail.

4. A Milestone Moment

Kail even introduced Dom to her sons, something she said she would only do in the case of romantic partners whom she expected to be with for a very long time.

5. A Sudden Change

And then, without warning, Kail and Dom abruptly called it quits.

6. Mystery Solved?

Fans were curious as to what might have caused Kail and Dom to end their relationship so abruptly. Now, we may have our answer ...

Amy Roloff: Fans Accuse Her of Selfishness, Playing the Victim!

On Tuesday night's episode, Matt Roloff slammed Amy as "insecure" and strongly implied that she was dumb and lacked sense, both common and business.

As you can imagine, fans were quick to ... condemn Amy Roloff.

Why? Well, she made a post on social media about spring cleaning, and they're slamming her as being "selfish" and "playing the victim." Oh boy ...

Amy Roloff Stands Up

Sharing a couple of photos of her in-progress work around the house, Amy writes:

"And the ‘purge’ starts up again- one room at a time. Laundry and extra pantry area."

Though The Purge is a horror film franchise that examines America's gun culture and its intersection with far-right nationalism, economic disparity, and conservative Christianity, Amy is simply referring to doing a little spring cleaning.

"It’s going to feel good. It’s hard to let go of some things though but in the long run it’s a good thing."

Some people collect lots of objects until they are overwhelmed.

Amy reminds her fans and followers that unhealthy attachments can be detrimental.

"Isn’t that kind of like life- hanging on to stuff and people when it’s time to let go or the other way around."

it sure is.

Amy Roloff "Purge" 01

She continues, again ostensibly talking about miscellaneous household items that she has accumulated.

She then points out that sometimes we discard things that we should keep.

"Letting go when we need to hang on."

True enough.

"Food for thought - what are we or not hanging onto?"

That's basically a question intended for her followers to consider for their own lives.

Then, of course, Amy plugs her products.

"I think I’ll have some of Amy Roloff’s Little Kitchen Berry bread and share some of the delicious cookies after this hard work."

She even includes a link.

"Visit www.amyjroloff.com and get some for Memorial day weekend."

Amy Roloff "Purge" 02

Fans immediately began to comment.

"Are you spring cleaning or moving?"

Initially, comments were friendly in nature.

"Moving? Hope not, but food for thought!"

Other comments clearly did not come from fans of Amy.

"Your selfishness comes out more and more every week! Caryn should own the farm!"

That's quite a claim.

"Amy has always been rude and just plain mean and nasty to Matt. Grow up and move on from your jealousy towards Caryn. Matt deserves to be as happy as you are."

So Very Happy Together

Some of the commenters were filled with rage ... and accusations.

"Awlays loved [Little People, Big World] but dude your bitterness & anger is ruining the show. You sound so cruel whenever you try and paint Matt in a bad light."

That comment continues:

"(And I can't believe you were jealous of Caryn holding Jackson. Omg most grandmas would be happy their grandchildren have so much love around them)"

We would question if this commenter has ever met a human being with emotions before.

"The jealousy makes you ugly. Whenever Matt has an issue with [you] he at least says it in a gentle way. Stop playing the victim all the time and get therapy and some meds please!!"

This is a great example of a person who determines who the bad person in a conversation is by their tone of voice rather than by the substance of their words or actions.

An Amy Selfie

Comments devolved into a heated argument among Instagram users, with plenty of Amy-bashing.

"I am sorry but Amy is very defensive...has been from the beginning...and always ragging on Matt. Matt’s disability’s are way more of a challenge than what Amy deals with."

"(she needs a step stool big deal)"

Wow, there's nothing like marginalizing someone's disability to make your argument stronger! (Disability, folks, is not a contest)

"I certainly feel sad for both of them if they were treated badly for being little people...that is so unacceptable and certainly not a minor thing to experience if that did happen.."

If it did happen?

Amy Roloff Opens Dinner

The narrative, in which Amy is perceived to be a whiner and Matt seems to be some sort of martyr, continues.

"But the things Matt has accomplished, in spite of his physical struggles and numerous surgeries, are truly an indication of what an amazing man he is."

This commenter thinks that Matt's rude behavior towards Amy deserves to be forgiven.

"I give him a lot of credit and cut him a little slack for being so driven and focused...I am sure that is how he has had to navigate through life to get things done that some may have thought he wouldn’t be able to do."

And they don't think that Amy treats him well.

"He persevered and showed them he can do more than most. If he was my husband, my dad, my son I would be so proud and would praise him on a regular basis and I certainly wouldn’t belittle him on National tv."

This, folks, is the terrible burden of being a reality star. And, perhaps, of being a woman.

Mackenzie Standifer Quits Social Media, Dumps Ryan Edwards?!

Mackenzie Standifer has put up with an awful lot during her brief marriage to Ryan Edwards.

But now it seems she may have finally become fed up with his many awful tendencies.

Ever since Ryan was arrested back in March, he and Mackenzie have both been laying low on social media.

But now, Standifer has taken things a step further.

She appears to have quit Instagram completely, and some Teen Mom OG fans believe they've picked up on subtle signs that she and Ryan are no longer together.

Here's what we know so far:

1. Happier Times

Mackenzie standifer with ryan edwards
In the wake of his March arrest for a probation violation, Mackenzie initially stood by her man. Unfortunately, that was just the beginning of Ryan's downfall.

2. Repeating a Pattern

Ryan edwards is mad
The day after the arrest, it was revealed that Ryan had been using an online dating profile to try and cheat on Mackenzie. It was not the first time he had done so.

3. It Gets Worse...

That same week, the public learned that Ryan's ex, Maci Bookout, had been granted a restraining order after revealing that Ryan had threatened to kill her husband.

4. A Painful Separation

There was a time when Ryan wasn't even allowed to make contact with his son, Bentley. A judge has since lifted that order of protection, but Ryan's vistation rights remain in jeopardy.

5. The Future

It's unclear what's next for Ryan. He could still be facing jail time, and he's in for a hell of a custody battle with Maci.

6. Mackenzie's Next Move

Mackenzie is five months pregnant with Ryan's baby (his first, her second), and fans have been encouraging her to kick him to the curb. Now, it seems she may have done exactly that ...

Maci Bookout Scores MAJOR Legal Victory Over Ryan Edwards!

If you're a Teen Mom OG fan, then by now, you're probably aware that Ryan Edwards has spent the past few months royally effing up just about every aspect of his life.

Ryan has gotten arrested; he's fallen off the wagon; he's cheated on his wife; and he's gone to great lengths to alienate those closest to him.

But for all of his repugnant behavior, perhaps nothing is more appalling than the news that Ryan threatened the life of Maci Bookout's husband, Taylor McKinney.

Now, it looks as though Ryan will pay for that crime dearly, as Maci has taken steps to protect her family by separating Ryan from that which matters most to him.

Here's what we know so far...

1. Downfall

Ryan edwards mug shot
Ryan's latest round of troubles began back in March, when he was arrested for a probation violation stemming from a 2017 arrest for heroin possession.

2. The Truth Comes Out

In the weeks that followed the arrest, a number of surprising revelations about Edwards emerged, and fans realzed the narrative about his redemption and recovery from addiction was fraudulent.

3. A Shameful Secret

For starters, it was revealed that Ryan had been using a misleading dating profile to try and cheat on his pregnant wife, Mackenzie Standifer.

4. One Loyal Wife

Remarkably, Mackenzie has stood by Ryan regardless, even helping him in his efforts to keep his original possession arrest a secret. But there were some things the couple wasn't able to conceal ...

5. His Lowest Point

Amid the deluge of shocking revelations about Ryan, fans learned that he had issued a threat to Maci Bookout's husband, Taylor McKinney.

6. Taking Action

Alleging that Ryan had threatened to shoot Taylor in the head, Maci and Taylor filed for orders of protection for themselves and their children, includng 9-year-old Bentley, Maci's son with Ryan.

Kim Zolciak Turns 40, Wants You to Know She’s Still a MILF

Marlon Wayans is going to eat his hurtful White Chicks joke.

Kim Zolciak, reality star and mother of six, turned 40 years old over the weekend. That is a major milestone.

But in case anyone has any doubts about her enduring hotness, she and Kroy snapped some bikini selfies that should put your fears at ease.

Kim Zolciak Turns 40

Saturday, May 19, was Kim Zolciak's birthday, and she shared her celebrations with a post to Instagram.

"It’s my 40th Birthday."

She follows that line with a pink cake emoji and a red heart emoji.

"Last night was a dream. I am so grateful, blessed and humbled."

Friends and family turned out to see the Don't Be Tardy star turn "over the hill" as she ushers in a major life milestone.

"There are no words to truly describe how loved I felt and feel."

But she'll try anyway.

Kroy Biermann Selfie with Kim Zolciak

"Thank you to everyone that came I truly appreciate you,"

Naturally, though we're sure that she sent plenty of private, direct thank-yous, she wants to show her appreciation in a public manner.

"I love you all from the core of my being."

Awwww! That's sweet.

"A huge thank you to my INCREDIBLE husband who put his heart and soul into making everything perfect for me."

Kroy Biermann sure knows how to treat a lady.

"I love you @kroybiermann to the moon and back a gazillion trillion times always!"

She shareda  series of photos from her oceanic adventures with Kroy, captioning them:

"Walking on Sunshine"

Kroy Biermann and Kim Zolciak, Fun in the Sun

Kroy wrote his own tribute to Kim, just recently, honoring her for Mother's Day.

"This woman right here!!! Where do I even start!?"

He did, in fact, figure out where to begin.

"I am so proud that she is the mother of our children and my wife!!"

Please hold your Borat impressions until the end.

"Every single day she wakes up and gives her ALL to us as a mother, wife, caregiver, and provider."

He credits her to the amazing successes and amazing little people that their six children are.

"Our children are filled with confidence, compassion, happiness, joy, and LOVE because of you @kimzolciakbiermann."

He talks about why honoring her on Mother's Day is so important.

"We celebrate you today and all you have accomplished in your time."

She has six kids, so there's a lot to honor.

"You have built incredible things and have touched so many lives in amazing ways."

He even credits her with making him a better person.

"We are all better people because of you!! I love you so much!!"

This is so touching.

"HAPPY MOTHERS DAY MY LOVE!!"

Kim and Kroy are one hot couple, and this set of steamy beach selfies show that Kim turning 40 really has not changed that.

Perhaps part of that is that the two of them cut out some unneeded stress, as Kim is not returning to The Real Housewives of Atlanta. Allegedly.

Whatever the source of enduring hotness, fans clearly appreciated the photoset.

Though one fan did sort of complain by commenting with a request, writing: "Show kroy in that speedo."

Social media is a wonder.

Happy birthday, Kim!

John David Duggar: First in His Family to Quit Reality TV?!

In recent weeks, there's been much talk of the small-scale rebellion taking place within the Duggar family.

Fans seem to be convinced that it all started when Jinger Duggar began wearing pants in direct defiance of her family's famously strict dress code.

According to this increasingly popular narrative, other Duggar kids then followed in Jinger's footsteps.

Among them? The newly-engaged Josiah Duggar, who - according to a source close to the family - is widely expected to be "the next [Duggar] to bust out."

But this version of events overlooks the original Duggar rebel.

The one who's been rejecting elements of his father's lifestyle so quietly and for so long that he his insurgence went mostly unnoticed.

Do you even know who we mean? We're talking, of course, about the Silent Duggar himself, John David Duggar.

Even if you've been watching the family's reality shows from day one, you may not know much about JDD.

And what you do know has probably been filtered through the always-formidable Duggar PR machine:

John David is Michelle and Jim Bob's second-oldest son, the twin brother of fan favorite Jana Duggar.

From a professional standpoint, he's the most active of all the Duggars, working as a pilot, firefighter and sheriff's deputy in his free time.

And it seems it's the duties of that last post that have brought John David into conflict with his domineering dad.

As we reported earlier exclusively, he's been at odds with the family patriarch for some time, albeit privately.

Jim Bob's efforts to control the town he lives in by purchasing both large tracts of land and politicians reportedly don't sit well with John David.

He's sworn to uphold law and order, after all.

Add to that the widespread reports that John David is disgusted by Jim Bob's greed, and you have a recipe for a legitimate family feud.

It's not hard to see why so many are convinced the 28-year-old has already begun distancing himself from his family's social media empire.

Interestingly, in a recent interview, John David has confirmed that he will appear in the new season of Counting On, which premieres this summer.

But he would not comment on his future on the show beyond that.

Instead, when asked about his future, he mostly focused on faith and family. John David remarked:

“Future plans would be to, I think, one day, you know, the Lord will bring the right one along, and I’ll start a family."

"I'll hopefully be able to invest in their lives and raise up a generation that will be great people for this society."

The comment has fueled speculation that John David is courting, though we cannot indepedently confirm that he is (or isn't).

If true, that may have influenced his decision to be the first in his family to willingly leave the world of TLC behind.

Whatever the case, we wouldn't be surprised in the least if John David is actually the first to "bust out" on his own.

As always, you can watch Counting On online for more on reality TV's largest and most controversial family.

There's never a dull moment. Well, actually, there are a lot of dull moments, but also some intriguing storylines.

R. Kelly: Sued for Alleged Sexual Battery, False Imprisonment

The allegations about R. Kelly's sex cult house of horrors are enough to keep you up at night. And they just keep coming.

While the Time's Up movement pushes to #MuteRKelly, yet another woman who says that she was one of his victims is speaking out.

In fact, she's taking him to court.

In court documents filed in a New York lawsuit and obtained by E!, Faith Rodgers accuses Kelly of a number of things.

She says that he would lock her in secluded areas for extended periods of time as punishment.

She accuses him of "willfully, deliberately, and maliciously" infecting her with herpes.

R. Kelly is accused of recording her without her consent during sexual contact.

He is accused of both forceful and non-consensual sexual contact with Faith.

She also says that he inflicted mental, sexual, and verbal abuse upon her during their relationship, which spanned for nearly a year.

Faith's attorney, Lydia C. Hills, explains why they filed this lawsuit in New York.

"The criminal investigation is still ongoing in the state of Texas."

It comes down, in part, to jurisdiction.

"We have decided to file the civil suit in New York, as this is the location where the initial sexual contact and several other incidents took place."

Faith herself shares her horrifying allegations about that initial contact, below.

"My goal is simply to obtain justice for my client, and hopefully, prevent this from happening to anyone else."

They are seeking damages in a jury trial.

R. Kelly Sings

In an interview with CBS This Morning, Faith describes an upsetting-to-read encounter with R. Kelly that took place in New York.

"He turns on all the lights and he's like, 'Take off your clothes' and he says it with authority in his voice."

That is unsurprising from a man who is accustomed to having women obey his every command.

"I didn't take off my clothes because why would I? I just wasn't ready for sex."

Unfortunately, he then forced non-consensual sex upon her, Faith alleges.

"He has this type of like intimidation right off the bat, so I was just waiting for it to be over."

On top of that, she says that he did not warn her that he had herpes.

R. Kelly Sucks

R. Kelly is accused of keeping women as "pets," and we are all too familiar with accusations of him isolating them and depriving them of food.

Faith says that she got out before she was fully part of his traveling group of kept women.

She does, however, describe why she accuses him of false imprisonment.

She says that Kelly allegedly locked her in a car for eight hours.

Faith's next words may send a chill down your spine as you take in the scope of R. Kelly's alleged victims.

R. Kelly on Stage

Faith believes that the abuse was all to prepare her to become another one of his "pets."

"He goes on to tell me that he raises five women -- some of them have been with him for 15 years and he basically was trying to make it seem like it was a family thing."

Creepy. And those words are very familiar.

"Raising" is a word fans have heard before, in references to women whom R. Kelly allegedly "trained" since they were minors.

Including an alleged 14-year-old sex slave.

It sounds like some women have lost their entire lives to Kelly. Faith, at least, got away from what her life might have been with Kelly.

R. Kelly has always strongly denied the allegations against him.

Jenelle Evans & David Eason: The Haters Want Us to Get Divorced!

Divorce rumors seem to circulate non-stop for just about every married couple in the Teen Mom franchise.

(With the exception of Cole DeBoer and Chelsea Houska, of course. No one seems to doubt that those two are in it for the long haul.)

But there's only one marriage that fans actively want to fail:

Jenelle Eason and David Eason Pic

Yes, every time there's a new report that Jenelle Evans and David Eason are getting divorced, a certain segment of the Teen Mom 2 fandom jumps for joy.

It's not so much that they all want Jenelle to be miserable (although some certainly do).

It's more that the longer the Evans-Eason marriage continues, the more likely it is to end in disaster.

And since the couple has five kids between them, most viewers would like to see them call it quits before any irreparable harm is done.

But no matter how much you tweet or how many David- and Jenelle-shaped voodoo dolls you lock in separate cabinets, it seems Ensley's mom and dad are still going strong.

It's a sad fact that fans were reminded of during this week's episode of Teen Mom 2.

Jenelle Evans: Baby Bump? Looks Like

The drama-packed reunion special saw Jenelle flipping out on just about every adult in her life except for David.

At one point, she absolutely lost it on Nathan Griffth's girlfriend, Ashley Lanhardt, for daring to hug her mother, the infamous Barbara Evans;

"Because you wanna hug my mother in front of everyone," Jenelle shrieked in an attempt to justify her tantrum.

"Me and my mom have turmoil right now." 

This, among other things, caused Babs to lose it:

"You f-cking b-tch! I have never seen you like this ever," she told Jenelle.

"Even on drugs, you didn't act like this."

David Eason and Jenelle

At that point, David stepped in, because of course, he did:

"You're right, Barb, you've never seen her like this because you've never seen her stand up for herself."

David probably thought that was a witheringly clever comment, and amazingly, Jenelle agreed with him.

It was then that she made the remark that forced those are eagerly hoping for a Jenelle-David breakup to abandon all hope:

"I love how everyone hates us so much, but we're so in love and happy with each other that it's just like we don't give a f--k," Jenelle stated.

"Nothing's wrong with us."

Obviously, Jenelle has said a lot of questionable things over the years - but that last sentence might be her most ridiculous to date.

Watch Teen Mom 2 online to remind yourself of just ridiculous Jenelle and David truly are.

Catelynn Lowell & Tyler Baltierra: Divorce Isn’t So Bad!

Last week, rumors that Catelynn Lowell and Tyler Baltierra were headed for divorce made their way across the social media landscape with surprising speed.

Typically, when such reports surface but are not confirmed by either half of the couple in question, it's easy to dismiss them as unfounded gossip.

Tyler with Catelynn

But in this case, there was real reason to believe Catelynn and Tyler may have called it quits.

Fans began to talk after noticing that Catelynn had unfollowed Tyler on Instagram.

(There was also much chatter about the fact that she had changed her name to "Catelynn Lowell" on Instagram, but in fact, that had always been her display name.)

And while that may have been the most recent indication of trouble in paradise, it certainly wasn't the only one.

On top of the suspicious social media activity, the fact that Tyler and Catelynn spent Mother's Day weekend in separate states had fans on high alert.

All of this came on the heels of a very public rough patch that was documented on the latest Teen Mom OG season finale.

Catelynn Lowell, Tyler Baltierra on Instagram

In the episode, Catelynn - who was fresh from a 6-week stint in Arizona rehab center - told Tyler that she feels she may need to return to the facility for further treatment.

Tyler encouraged his wife to seek out a facility closer to home for the sake of their daughter, prompting Lowell to reply, "She'll manage."

Later in the episode, Tyler confessed to his sister that he had begun to grapple with fears that Catelynn might not be the right partner for him.

Fans were stunned, and many pointed out that it was not the first time that season that Tyler and Catelynn had broached the subject of divorce. 

Needless to say, it's not hard to see why fans were so quick to buy into the latest round of breakup rumors.

But against tough odds, it seems the Baltierras are determined to make their relationship work:

The Baltierras

Tyler posted the above photo to Instagram earlier this week.

"Damn! I think divorce looks pretty good on us," he captioned the pic.

"But we are getting a divorce #nothingcanstopus," Catelynn added.

It's important to note, of course, that Tyler and Catelynn both seem to have posted those comments sarcastically.

Catelynn even added a series of cry-laughing emojis to drive the point home.

And fans who are rooting for the beloved couple have found further encouragement in recent comments from Catelynn's father, David Lowell:

Tyler and Catelynn Post-Therapy

"Tyler is in Texas visiting his dad Butch and Catelynn is in Florida with Nova visiting her older sister," David said of the couple's weekend apart.

"Everything is good as far as I know. I don't know about the Instagram name change. I didn't notice."

Catelynn also addressed the rumors with a candid social media post:

"[Tyler Baltierra] and I are not getting a divorce," she wrote.

"Couples go through ups and downs that’s normal life. We are a solid couple that will work through anything life throws at us!" 

So we guess it's safe to say Tyler and Catelynn won't be calling it quits anytime soon.

It's a refreshing change of pace, as TMOG couples don't have the greatest success rate.

Vinny Guadagnino Clashes With Ex Over Cheating Allegations!

If you've been watching Jersey Shore Family Vacation, then you know that the most recent episode was a tough one for fan favorite Vinny Guadagnino.

Though Vin didn't cross the line in the same way as Ronnie and his French Fry, the incident captured by MTV cameras clearly didn't sit well Vin's then-girlfriend, Elicea Shyann.

Vincent and Paul

Not only did Shyann make her displeasure with Vinny very clear in one of the most uncomfortable duck phone conversations to date, the relationship came to an end shortly after filming wrapped.

But that doesn't mean either party is finished hashing out the details of Vinny's betrayal:

Earlier this week, Shyann posted a lengthy Instagram tirade in which she slammed Jersey Shore fans who have found tremendous entertainment in watching her relationship crumble:

“Here’s some free promotion!!!! for the trash everyone loves to watch. I’m a real f—king person who wakes up DAILY to more and more bullsh-t and heartache,” Shyann wrote.

“Enjoy the f-cking show that is my f-cking life. Ppl wonder how ppl end up in the darkest places. Here’s your answer.”

"Humiliation disrespect zero empathy lol it’s truly AMAZING,” Shyann continued in her since-deleted Instagram posts.

“Everyone lives for the drama watching good things go to sh-t.”

Not surprisingly, Shyann's outrage led to fans putting Vinny on blast on Twitter.

And the Keto Guido was clearly not in the mood for accepting constructive criticism:

"Dude, don’t you know? Talking to bottle girls in a nightclub is cheating duh,” he sarcastically tweeted.

“Forget the guys who have side pieces, cheat on their wives, text, and f–k girls … you’re nice to [a] waitress you cheat.”

“No no I’m a monster. I really shouldn’t have been secure in my relationship enough to go out, be nice to people, be fun and entertaining and still remain loyal," Guadagnino continued.

"I gave compliments to bottle girls on tv so I’m the worst man alive! Get it right.”

After a fan accused Vinny of saving a waitress' number in his phone, the reality star defended himself by pointing out a meaningless distinction about the device he was using that night:

“Yep… I can give other girls drunk compliments and still love and be loyal to my girl," he tweeted.

"And that wasn’t my phone it was the house iTouch (we don’t have phones) so that we can all turn up again as a group. (While still remaining loyal)<- impossible right ?!”

Oh, well in that case ...

Vinny Guadagnino at MTV Movie Awards

Vin ended his tirade on a Trumpian note, slamming the purveyors of fake news for alleging that he colluded with foreign strippers:

“Aight I gotta get off Twitter. It’s been fun," he wrote.

"Thanks and respect to the people who understand the diff between crossing lines and CHEATING. Context and editing. And to the trolls and Fake News. Keep trollin. You are great people!”

Ah, "context and editing."

The refrain of the reality star who's not proud of his actions.

One would think that by now, Vinny would be so accustomed to dealing with online criticism that he wouldn't let it bother him so much.

We guess it stings more than usual when one of those critics is the ex-girlfriend you disrespected on TV.
