As you probably heard, the Derek Chauvin trial has ended with the shocking verdict of GUILTY on all counts — and we say “shocking” because we’ve grown so used to injustice over the years. While it’s been pointed out quite a bit in the cacophony of reactions that this isn’t exactly justice for George Floyd himself — […]

Disgraced former Southern Charm star Thomas Ravenel has full custody of his children with Kathryn Dennis.
Their custody battle ended in a major loss for Kathryn.
But she has just moved into a new home with her boyfriend, Chleb Ravenell.
Kathryn is showing off the new digs … including a photo with her kids.
Kathryn took to Instagram to show off her new home that she shares with her boyfriend.
The space is devoid of color and was initially devoid of furniture, but that’s how new homes work.
“So we got our first place together!” Kathryn announced.
She continued her caption: “Let @thehomeedit and peel and stick projects begin!”
Kathryn also shared a photo of herself with her children, Kensie and Saint, in the home.
We’re sure that they were mostly just happy to see their mom.
Fans first realized that Kathryn and Chleb were probably dating last July.
The two were spotted together and looked extremely cozy.
They were a group of friends on a trip, but Kathryn and Chleb looked, shall we say, extra friendly.
It wasn’t long before their relationship became a little more official.
Chleb very conspicuously (almost) shares a last name with Kathryn’s infamous baby daddy.
Sadly, the story behind why many Black families and white families in the south share last names stems from slavery.
Yes, the Ravenel family — the ones with one L in their names — have benefitted from generational white wealth for centuries.
It is incredibly awkward and generally unusual for two men to date a woman when one man’s ancestors “owned” the other’s.
But the show’s title, Southern Charm, has always been a little tongue in cheek. Sometimes, it’s a grim joke.
Kathryn’s photo with her kids confused some fans who had heard that she had lost custody.
Those fans didn’t hear wrong; it’s true.
But she does still have supervised weekend visits with the kids.
This is likely when the photo of them at the new place was snapped.
In fact, under the previous custody arrangement, Kathryn could never have moved in with Chleb without approval.
Now that she no longer has any share of custody of the kids, this is possible .. it’s bittersweet, to say the least.
As we reported in extensive detail, Thomas and Kathryn waged a custody war.
They’ve done this more than once since the two (finally) broke up.
They have each accused the other of being unworthy parents and generally total drug fiends.
They both do have legal histories involving drugs, though Thomas more infamously so.
This time, however, Thomas apparently had Kathryn followed by private investigators.
And according to his allegations in court, Kathryn was neglectful of her kids, allowing them to be in danger.
Thomas also accused Kathryn of causing their son, Saint, to have fetal alcohol syndrome.
(For the record, previous court testimony accused Thomas of supplying her with wine while she was pregnant)
All of this combined with alleged recent reckless placement of cocaine near her kids, he argued, made her unfit.
Because aspects of the court record were sealed, we do not know what finally swayed the court.
However, they sided with Thomas, who has full custody of both kids.
It is difficult to imagine the accused rapist, who plead guilty to assaulting their former nanny, as the more suitable parent.
Oof, as if this divorce wasn’t messy enough, now it’s come to a low point: using the kids against one another. If you haven’t been following this sad saga, Titanic alum Ioan Gruffudd — perhaps best known as the star of those terrible early 2000s Fantastic Four movies — left his family in January. The whole […]

There has been so much said about Khloe Kardashian’s unedited pic and the psychology that drove her to hide it.
Countless fans are very concerned about her mental and emotional well being.
But some are just having a laugh at her expense as she continues to obscure her true looks.
Khloe looks at too many comments for her own good, and she is clapping back.
Khloe posed some very cool photos of herself modeling in colorful lighting.
She looked very good, and of course she did.
Even (especially!) without filters and photoshop, Khloe is a stunningly beautiful woman.
Many celebrities avoid reading their own comments, especially when they have been in hot water lately.
Khloe is not following that rule, and instead poured through her comments.
She left lots of hearts and thanks for dozens and dozens and dozens of compliments.
But this also means that Khloe saw some hurtful comments.
If she was meant to see them, she was likely not expected to respond.
“If insecurity [were] a person,” one commenter wrote, taking a jab at Khloe.
Khloe absolutely saw this comment.
She could have ignored it. She could have mashed that block button.
Instead, she opted to respond in a surprising way.
“Baby girl, you have to look in the mirror,” Khloe’s reply began.
She declared that “only insecure people tear other people down.”
That doesn’t sound wrong, does it?
“I’m sending you so much love, health, and happiness!” Khloe wrote.
“I’m sorry that you’re hurting,” she expressed.
There’s a bit of an edge, or underside, to that reply.
Is that reply patronizing, condescending, and more?
But that doesn’t mean that it wasn’t a smart way to respond.
It also doesn’t mean that there wasn’t some genuine compassion behind it.
Every now and then, you see someone make a cruel comment and it’s like their whole miserable existence flashes before your eyes.
Invariably, it comes from someone unhappy who feels powerless … and venting into the “void” of social media makes them feel better.
The problem with that, of course, is that social media isn’t a void.
There are real people on the other end, and even celebrities will sometimes see your tweets.
This can mean that people’s days are ruined … which of course makes some trolls want to do it even more to seek that thrill again.
So, Khloe showing some compassion, even if she was weaponizing it, is great.
The trouble, though, is that many of the people who talk about Khloe or comment on her photos aren’t trolls.
Some clearly are, but others are genuinely, legitimately concerned about her obvious body dysmorphia.
Khloe is a stunningly, extraordinarily beautiful woman.
She put in a lot of work, the kind that only rich people have the time and resources for, into her “revenge body.”
Huge portions of Khloe’s schedule are dedicated to her fitness regime, and it shows.
But somehow, that’s not enough, and it’s not just her body that gives Khloe pause.
She distorts her face, filtering it beyond recognition, with alarming frequency.
Khloe insists that it’s not her fans’ business to talk about … seeing concern as the same as body-shaming. It’s just not.
Throughout Season 8 of 90 Day Fiance, Julia Trubkina was a fan favorite.
She’s funny, her story is sympathetic, she’s beautiful, and in many ways she was very relatable.
But attitudes changed dramatically with some of Julia’s comments at the Tell All.
Did 90 Day Fiance give Julia a flattering edit to trick fans into liking her?
Julia had an uphill battle all season long, struggling with Betty, with Ron, and even with Brandon.
Betty and Ron laid down disrespectful, inexcusable “house rules.”
And, as later revealed was to take on some of Brandon’s farm labor, Julia had to feed animals.
Julia didn’t come here to be a farmhand, and Brandon already had a full time job.
This made her in-laws the bad guys.
More than once, Brandon did Julia dirty — like not warning her about their sleeping arrangements.
Even so, the two of them were married, and fans were happy for them.
Their nuptials were heartwarming, especially under the grim pandemic circumstances.
And fans had been charmed all season by Julia’s positive attitude and great sense of humor.
Then came the Tell All, a time for the stars to stand up for and sometimes even redeem themselves.
Somehow, Julia managed to do the opposite.
For a perplexing reason, she chose to be intensely judgmental of anyone getting cosmetic work done.
Sometimes people have private thoughts that are, well, bad, and the good sense to not share them.
Not Julia, who shared her judgmental and frankly unscientific point of view repeatedly.
Exercise cannot get rid of wrinkles, cannot absorb excess skin, and in many cases, has its limits for weight loss alone.
Exercise also cannot give someone a nose that they want to see or make many other changes.
Even after being called out by others, including her friend Yara Zaya, Julia continued.
She condemned people making these choices about their bodies as “lazy” and objected that it’s “not natural.”
Death, cancer, and aging are all natural.
That doesn’t make them desirable, or unnatural things bad.
Unfortunately, the months since the Tell All was filmed haven’t softened her tone.
Julia doubled down on her claims, clapping back at fans after the Tell All Part 1.
She said that no, she’ll never get work done, because her mom hasn’t.
That’s just fine … but the core issue was her being judgmental. Julia’s body is her choice.
At the Tell All Part 2, Julia started off fine (and had some genuinely good moments).
Then she seemed bewildered and possibly even scandalized in a surprisingly naive way.
She was not the only one who was inappropriately judgmental of Tarik and Hazel’s polyamorous throuple goals.
Simple naivete is surprising, but fine, and maybe understandable from someone from Russia.
Despite her history of working at nightclubs, Russia has a very different (read: worse) culture about sex.
However, Julia appeared to be visibly judgmental of Tarik and Hazel. That’s not okay.
Things got even weirder when the discussion turned to Mike and Natalie.
Julia, alongside Yara and even Rebecca, was flat out wrong about friendships between men and women.
Unlike Yara, who spoke only of her personal preference, Julia spoke boldly of men and women never needing to be friends.
It may be that more of Julia’s previously hidden dark side will come out on Happily Ever After?
We don’t know if she’s going to body-shame or surgery-shame anyone.
But certainly, the teaser makes it clear that she’ll take issue with Brandon’s friend being a girl.
Whether that’s an insecurity or a cultural difference, it’s something that Julia needs to outgrow.
In the mean time, did none of this weird, judgmental side of Julia really come up on her season (except in Episode 2)?
Or did the network give her a flattering edit because it made for a better narrative and, hey, they liked her?
