Hilary Duff Felt “Isolated” After Becoming A Mom

Any mom will tell you that after having your first child, your life will change forever. Once you have kids, of course, it’s hard to imagine anything else. But that first one makes you rethink everything you thought you knew.

Hilary Duff learned this lesson all too well seven years ago after she gave birth to her son, Luca, whom she shares with former NHL player and ex-husband Mike Comrie.

Duff has been in the public eye since she was a child, most notably as a Disney star in the show Lizzie McGuire. Since then, she’s been one of the more accomplished child stars, and her life has never been full of drama (or at least not that we’ve seen). Duff had Luca when she was only 24 years old, and she said that becoming a mom at a young age made her lost part of her identity.

“It was a little isolating in the beginning because I didn’t have any friends that had babies yet,” the Younger star said. ”But I had been working for such a long time that it felt like a natural step for me and I always knew I wanted to be a mom. I always knew that was going to be my No. 1 priority in life. So I felt ready on some fronts and a little scared on others, but really I only got scared once I was pregnant, thinking, like, ‘Oh this is actually really happening. What if this? What if that?’”

Despite feeling like she no longer knew who she was, Duff knew that being a mom was the most important job she could have.

“I did feel like after I had him, I lost a big chunk of my identity for like maybe the first year and a half, but I don’t think that was a negative thing,” she said. “At times, I was sad about it, but you know it’s full on. I don’t remember setting him down for the first three months of life. I was obsessively googling things and I just took it really seriously that I didn’t realize how all-encompassing it would be. I knew it was the most important, biggest job in the world but you know, it looks very different once you’re just in the household with the baby by yourself all the time. It was shocking and it was also the happiest, most beautiful experience, so those two things butting up against each other is quite a strange mix sometimes.”

Don’t get her wrong, though. Duff says becoming a mom was “the happiest, most beautiful experience” she’s had. It took a little while for her to find herself again, but when she did, the actress felt unstoppable.

“[Once] you do find yourself again, you have the biggest thing under your belt that nobody can take away from you and you’re so powerful and you’re so confident. … When it was happening, maybe I was a little sad about it and I didn’t feel like I had anyone to go through the experience with, but then I came out on the other side. I’m like, ‘I’m freaking super woman and I can do anything and I have confidence for days.’ There’s so much good that comes along with it.”

Duff is now also a mom to nine-month-old daughter Banks, whom she shares with fiancé Matthew Koma. This time around, she’s experiencing a different set of problems which she joked about on Instagram.

“Sitting here thinking…gotta keep working on this body that was Banks’ apartment. A while ago…,” she said on her Instagram Story. “Give me my abs back. Are they in there? Hellllllo come back. I was thinking if I told my 14-year-old self that I would hang out in sweatpants that cover my belly button I think I would have vomited on the spot and laughed in your face.”

Duff can’t be the only mom who has felt isolated after having their first child. She’s handled it with grace, though, and she’s a great mom to those little kids.

One Of The Scott Brothers Reveals He’s Battling A Mysterious Illness

It’s been a scary year for the Scott family but none of us have known until now. Fans were shocked when JD Scott and his fiancé, Annalee, announced that for the past 14 months, JD has been suffering from a mysterious illness, and still doesn’t know exactly what it is. Scott is the older brother of the famous renovation twins Jonathan and Drew Scott who have the show Property Brothers.

Scott and Belle posted an almost half hour video on Instagram, which went into detail about what Scott has been battling.

“We would like to share something important with the people who follow us,” the post says. “I apologize for the length of this video but there is very personal and intimate information that it was time to talk about. Human beings are delicate creatures and I found out just how delicate this last year as I struggled against something very serious. It has been a race for answers and a frustrating journey when it seems like everything is against you, even time. Warning, this video is long and quite emotional at times. Please bear with me when I can’t find the words or a voice to talk about some of the more painful memories.”

It was then that Scott opened up about his battle.

“You may have noticed over the last, just over a year, that I do a lot of content from the office and from home. The reason why that is, I’ve been quite sick for the last 14 months. It started around May and there had been some symptoms before that, but ended up in the hospital because things got really bad, and that began the whole process,” he explained. “That event was so bad, I thought I was dying. I was preparing all my estate and everything for Annalee.”

The event was so bad, Scott wrote a letter to his soon-to-be-wife.

“Instead of going to the hospital, he typed out an email to me, telling me to take care of everything in case this was it,” said Belle.

A series of tests were run while he was in the hospital. Scott went through MRIs, as well as tests for lupus, autoimmune disease, and brain aneurysms. Nothing was becoming any more clear, and Scott’s symptoms were starting to hinder his every day life.

“I was extremely sensitive to heat — anything over about 70 degrees, I would suddenly feel like my skin is on fire, I would pass out, and I would be out of commission sometimes for days,” Scott recalled. “Walking too much would bring on the symptoms. Heat would bring on the symptoms. So I was very limited in what I could do. But as long as I was within an area that I could control, I could actually do things.”

“After months and months, they determined it wasn’t lupus and that it was a brain aneurysm. They then decided I had two brain aneurysms,” Scott said.

Scott was put on some medication for something called a nummular headache, which caused the renovation expert to feel a “crawling” sensation on his skull.

“What he gave me helped with that specifically, it didn’t help with the other symptoms,” Scott admitted.

While Scott and Belle were getting their house renovated on the show Forever Home, they met a functional doctor named Scott Jacobson, who uses homeopathic and natural approaches to medicine. They asked him for help and got Scott help right away.

“I was doing makeup on the show, and learned there was a Functional Doctor there, which was something I was actually looking into,” Belle explained.

“He did so many tests, I had about 25 vials of blood taken, but he discovered there was pretty severe infection,” Scott recalled.  “He said it’s possible that it has been there for quite a while, and that would have been setting off all these responses. My body was trying to fight it.”

It was only about a month ago that Scott was able to get a somewhat firm diagnosis. Thanks to medication and an elimination diet, he’s finally starting to feel like himself again.

“I have gotten better. I felt, at times recently, like I did before this all started and I haven’t felt like that in ages,” he said, but warned that “it’s not all better by any stretch, but this sort of thing does take time.”

While it’s great that Scott is on the mend, he and Belle are still left hurt after some of their friends made rude comments during this whole ordeal, even calling Scott “dramatic.”

“A lot of people just haven’t checked in and they know how bad it is. It’s felt kind of lonely,” explained Belle.

“Not having the friends that you normally have is not fun,” Scott added.

I’m so glad to hear that JD Scott is doing better. I can’t imagine how terrifying this experience was for him and his fiancée.

Jenelle Evans Admits “Dog Killing” Controversy Was All For Publicity

Well here’s something we didn’t think we’d see: Teen Mom 2 star Jenelle Evans has admitted to police that the entire months-long drama after her husband, David Eason, allegedly shot and killed the family dog was FAKE.

The shocking revelation came after Radar Online obtained the media release from the Columbus County Sheriff’s Office, and the reality TV seemed to change her story. It’s especially wild when you remember that Evans and Eason lost custody of their kids and had to go through multiple court appearances to get them back.

“[Evans] advised that her husband, David Eason, threw the dog outside. She then advised that after David realized the dog scratched their child, he went outside and shot the dog,” the statement read, regarding Evans’ call to police on May 1st after the alleged accident happened. “Jenelle stated that she did hear a gunshot but did not witness the incident.”

Two weeks later, on May 13th, the Columbus County Sheriff’s Office searched their property while executing a warrant. No weapons were found during the search, and there was “no blood evidence or any other physical evidence to validate that an animal had been fatally injured on the property,” the report read. This was the same day the Department of Social Services served four custody orders for Maryssa, Jace, Kaiser, and Ensley.

The next day, investigators met with Evans and tried to get more information out of her, but that’s when her story started to change. They began to notice “inconsistencies” in Evans’ stories.

“Jenelle advised that she was inside with her children at the time of the alleged event,” the report read. “She advised that she never heard or saw anything to indicate that David shot her dog.”

Evans also stated she wanted the investigation to end, a decision she “made on her own free will.”

“Jenelle advised that ‘She don’t know where the dog is.’ She also advised that ‘I don’t know if she was shot or killed or not,’” the statement read. “Jenelle stated that the reason she filed the animal cruelty report was for the publicity and because she did not know where her dog was.”

The animal cruelty charge ended up getting dropped, because the evidence was “fabricated,” according to the Sheriff’s office. Evans and Eason also just regained custody of their kids,

Now the entire case is closed, but something isn’t adding up. So let’s take a look at the details.

Why It Doesn’t Add Up

The same day the news broke that Eason had shot the family dog, Nugget, Evans posted an emotional tribute on her Instagram which seemed to confirm that he was dead.

Nugget… I’m crying everyday,” she wrote. “I love you so much and I’m so sorry. I’m speechless,” she captioned a photo with the pet. You were my side kick and knew the moment I felt bad and would cuddle with me. You still had a lot to learn and a lot to grow from your lessons. Everyday I wake up you’re not here, when I come home you’re not here, when I go to bed… you’re not here. You’re gone forever and there’s no coming back. #Heartbroken #Distraught”

Eason also posted on Instagram that day, again responding to the reports that he had killed Nugget.

“I don’t give a damn what animal bites my baby on the face… whether it be your dog or mine, a dog is a dog and I don’t put up with that s— at all,” he wrote. “I’m all about protecting my family, it is my life’s mission. Some people are worth killing or dying for and my family means that much to me. You can hate me all you want but this isn’t the first time the dog bit Ensley aggressively. The only person that can judge wether or not a animal is a danger to MY CHILD is ME.”

If Nugget wasn’t dead, and Evans didn’t know where the dog was, then why would she he was “gone forever?” Also this week, Evans did a Q&A on her Instagram page where she admitted that “the dog incident” was hard on her and her husband.

“We were on bad terms for almost a week. Didn’t talk much. He knows how upset it made me,” she wrote. “Now that we are getting over this incident, our relationship has got a lot stronger. David has completed anger management as well.”

Instagram – Jenelle Evans

Oh, and another thing. Evans literally told Us Weekly that Eason killed the dog.

“David killed my dog Nugget because he snapped at my 2-year-old, Ensley,” she told them. “He doesn’t put up with that and those are his beliefs. He just took her and shot her in the woods … about two acres away from the house.”

Evans even said she was considering divorce after the whole ordeal.

“David and I are not on talking terms,” she said.I’m too hurt and upset at the fact he did that. It’s taking time to get over this whole situation, and it’s making me feel he’s very cruel and doesn’t have a heart on many ends. [I] would like for everyone to just give me my own time right now to figure things out and clear my head. At this time, we are dealing with this rough situation. I want to focus on what’s best for me and my kids. (Divorce is) in thoughts, but nothing is finalized.”

Honestly, the whole thing smells fishy. It sounds like they just want the entire thing to go away, but at the same time, admitting all this was a publicity stunt isn’t going to help your cause. How could someone lose custody of their kids for almost two months all for publicity?

What story do you believe?

Details On Amber Portwood’s Machete-Filled Attack On Boyfriend

Last week, Teen Mom star Amber Portwood was arrested for domestic battery after her boyfriend, Andrew Glennon, called 911 during an alleged attack from Portwood. The couple’s son, James, was present during the time of the attack.

“Just after 3:00 a.m., on 7.5.2019, officers were called to [address] reference a disturbance. Officers spoke to the male victim who stated his live-in-girlfriend and he were having a disagreement,” an Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department statement read. “During which time the female, later identified as Amber Portwood assaulted him, while he was holding their one-year-old child.”

Glennon apparently texted police for help, but it wasn’t clear on the details as to what happened.

“I received a text message from somebody saying that their life and their son’s life is in danger,” a dispatch recording from the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department said.

Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department

Portwood was released from jail on a $2,000 cash bond, and was charged with two felonies and one misdemeanor. The reality star has a history with violence, as well as a diagnosis of bipolar and borderline personality disorder, and to hear that she was arrested once again was sad. Portwood previously spent 17 months in prison on drug charges, but it had seemed like she turned her life around.

More Details Emerge

Now that a few days have gone by, more details are starting to come to light about what happened on the day of Portwood’s arrest. According to Marion Superior Court documents obtained by Radar Online, Portwood had a weapon on her at the time of the attack.

Her first charge is for domestic battery for “knowingly touching Andrew Glennon, a family or household member in a rude, insolent or angry manner.”

Her second charge is criminal recklessness with a deadly weapon, after “[striking] the machete at and into a door, while Andrew Glennon was standing directly on the other side of the door, that created a substantial risk of bodily injury to Andrew Glennon.” This charge is a felony.

Portwood’s third charge, also a felony, is because she “knowingly touched Andrew Glennon, a family or household member, in a rude, insolent, or angry manner and Amber L Portwood committed said offense in the presence of a child less than 16 years of age, knowing that the child was present and might be able to see or hear the offense.”

According to Glennon, Portwood’s outburst was because he “dropped the ball” on plans so see the fireworks on the 4th of July.

“Mr. Glennon stated when he got inside the home, Ms. Portwood grabbed a shoe off the shoe rack and hit him with it. Mr. Glennon stated he was holding [the baby] and he turned to the side to avoid [the baby] getting hit with the shoe,” an affidavit obtained by The Ashley read. “Mr. Glennon stated he then left [the house] again with [the baby].”

Apparently, the Teen Mom star was also suicidal and threatening to kill herself.

“Mr. Glennon stated Ms. Portwood went to her drawer and took a handful of Klonopin and tossed it back like it was nothing,” the affidavit continued.

Because of these charges and Portwood’s mental state, Glennon has filed for full custody of their son. However, that doesn’t mean the couple is calling it quits.

“Andrew is doing it as a protective measure to ensure whatever happens with upcoming court rulings, their son will have the best outcome regardless,” a source explained. “Amber and Andrew still really care about each other and this is not the end of their relationship.”

Portwood is also mom to 10-year-old daughter Leah, whom she shares with ex-fiancé Gary Shirley. Shirley sent his wishes to Portwood and Glennon on Twitter after the news of Amber’s arrest broke.

“My prayers are with @AmberLPortwood, Andrew, & most importantly baby James, idk any of the particulars, however I’m thinking of them,” Shirley wrote on Twitter. “And for all the questions and concerns Leah was/is currently camping with her best friend.”

It sounds like Portwood is in serious need of treatment, and I hope she’s able to get the help she needs for the sake of herself and her kids.

Katherine Heigl Opens Up About Returning To “Grey’s Anatomy”

You could make a fairly convincing argument that Katherine Heigl made the biggest mistake of her career in 2008, which caused her to get written off Grey’s Anatomy. Heigl had won an Emmy for her role as Izzie Stevens the year before, but in 2008 she chose to withdraw her name from the race, which is fine. It’s the reason why she did it that got her trouble.


“I did not feel that I was given the material this season to warrant an Emmy nomination and in an effort to maintain the integrity of the academy organization, I withdrew my name from contention,” Heigl told the Los Angeles Times that year. “In addition, I did not want to potentially take away an opportunity from an actress who was given such materials.”


It was a pretty big slap in the face for the writers, and showrunner Shonda Rhimes, to hear one of their own go out and diss them for their work, and obviously it didn’t sit well with them. Heigl’s character was written off the show not long after, but noticeably she wasn’t killed off, which a lot of people thought might mean a return for Izzie.


In 2016, Heigl admitted that she made a huge mistake saying those things about the writers, and even said she had to go to therapy to deal with it.

“I didn’t feel good about my performance and there was a part of me that thought, because I had won the year before, that I needed juicy, dramatic, emotional material,” Heigl told Howard Stern.


Heigl went to Rhimes to try and apologize for what she said, as well.

“I went in because I was really embarrassed,” Heigl recalled. “So I went in to Shonda and said, ‘I’m so sorry. That wasn’t cool, and I should not have said that.’ And I shouldn’t have said anything publicly. But at the time, I didn’t think anyone would notice … I just quietly didn’t submit and then it became a story, and I felt I was obligated to make my statement, and … ‘Shut up, Katie.'”


“I had never done therapy until a couple years ago,” Heigl continued. “I started going because of the [pauses] scrutiny. I was not handling it well. I was feeling completely like the biggest piece of s–t on the bottom of your shoe. I was really struggling with it and how to not take it all personally and not to feel that there’s something really deeply wrong with me.”


It’s been eight years since Heigl left Grey’s Anatomy, and with the show Suits ending soon, which Heigl is on, people are wondering if maybe she could make a return to the long-running medical drama.

“I haven’t [thought about Izzie] in years,” Heigl admitted. “I don’t know. I don’t know if I would or if I wouldn’t. I almost feel like that would almost be distracting again to, sort of, what they’ve done with that show in the years since I left… and what that’s become and what it is to the fans now. It must feel like it would just be kind of like, ‘Yeah, we already let that go… why are you here?’”


When Heigl left the show, her character was recovering from cancer. She was also married to fellow doctor Alex Karev, and that storyline was left a little undone. Karev has since moved on and married Jo Wilson, but Heigl does admit that her hypothetical return could add something to that whole relationship.

“It would be juicy,” she said. “It would bring out maybe a bit of drama.”


Grey’s Anatomy definitely loves the drama, but I don’t think we’ll be seeing an Izzie appearance any time soon.

“Breaking Bad” Star Details “Extreme Sexism” Faced During Show

Breaking Bad has been over for a few years now, but there are some rumors that a new movie based off the critically-acclaimed series is on its way. Fans are looking forward to seeing their favorite meth-selling duo back on the screen, but it’s probably safe to say that not everyone is looking forward to seeing Skyler (played by Anna Gunn), Walter White’s wife, back. She was always a polarizing figure on the show, although it’s not totally clear why.


Skylar took a lot of heat for being stern, even though it was her husband who was literally cooking meth. In 2013, after the show ended, Gunn wrote an op-ed for The New York Times, talking about the hate she received.

I was unprepared for the vitriolic response [Skyler] inspired. Thousands of people have “liked” the Facebook page “I Hate Skyler White.” Tens of thousands have “liked” a similar Facebook page with a name that cannot be printed here. When people started telling me about the “hate boards” for Skyler on the Web site for AMC, the network that broadcasts the show, I knew it was probably best not to look, but I wanted to understand what was happening.

The consensus among the haters was clear: Skyler was a ball-and-chain, a drag, a shrew, an “annoying bitch wife.”


But as a human being, I’m concerned that so many people react to Skyler with such venom. Could it be that they can’t stand a woman who won’t suffer silently or “stand by her man”? That they despise her because she won’t back down or give up? Or because she is, in fact, Walter’s equal?

It’s notable that viewers have expressed similar feelings about other complex TV wives — Carmela Soprano of “The Sopranos,” Betty Draper of “Mad Men.” Male characters don’t seem to inspire this kind of public venting and vitriol.


Six years later, Gunn is still grappling with how much people hated her character. In an interview with the London Evening Standard, Gunn admitted she wrote the op-ed because she felt the sexism she faced while on the show was “shocking.”

“I feel like I came to understand what it was, which was just the undercurrent of extreme sexism. The idea of gender roles being so deeply ingrained — it was shocking to me,” Gunn said. “But I’m not sorry it happened, because it put me out on the other side going, ‘Huh, that’s really interesting.’ And I felt compelled to say something, not necessarily for myself, but for my daughters and other women. The vehemence of it, and the fact that it was just allowed — it was the id gone wild.”


Even though she’s not on social media, the 50-year-old actress was stunned when people close to her informed her of what appeared to be a death threat.

“There was this college student who had just watched an episode where Skyler makes Walt take Walt Jr’s car back, and she was very upset about that,” Gunn recalled. “So she tweeted: ‘Can somebody tell me where I can find Anna Gunn so I can kill her?’ Which to me sounds like a death threat. So the police checked it out. And she said, ‘Oh, I just saw the episode, you know.’ And they said, ‘Well, you did use her actual name.’ And she said, ‘Oh, I know but … I guess there’s not free speech.’”


Gunn also pointed out that even when the show’s creator actively tried to make Walter White be hated, it didn’t work.

“Even when Vince Gilligan thought he was writing hard enough on Walt, the audience continued to side with him,” Gunn pointed out.


To end off her op-ed in 2013, Gunn said she wasn’t ready for all the criticism, but she’s glad the conversation happened.

But I finally realized that most people’s hatred of Skyler had little to do with me and a lot to do with their own perception of women and wives. Because Skyler didn’t conform to a comfortable ideal of the archetypical female, she had become a kind of Rorschach test for society, a measure of our attitudes toward gender.

I can’t say that I have enjoyed being the center of the storm of Skyler hate. But in the end, I’m glad that this discussion has happened, that it has taken place in public and that it has illuminated some of the dark and murky corners that we often ignore or pretend aren’t still there in our everyday lives.


I think Gunn brings up an interesting point, that we’re always quick to dismiss the behavior of male characters while looking at female characters through a harsher lens. That being said…I really didn’t like Skyler.

Wendy Williams Reveals New Incurable Diagnosis

The first half of 2019 has been difficult for talk show host Wendy Williams. Not only is she involved in a messy separation from her husband of 21 years, she has been dealing with a slew of health issues.

Williams suffers from Graves’ disease, an autoimmune condition she was diagnosed with over 19 years ago. Also known as toxic goiter, the condition affects the function of the thyroid. It is the most common cause of hyperthyroidism, which is described by the American Thyroid Association as “a generalized overactivity of the entire thyroid gland.”

The disease, which affects 1 in 200 people, is often characterized by the shape of a patient’s eyes, which usually appear to be bulging. “I often feel like birds are swimming around my head. Like constantly high, but not high,” Williams explained on her show in 2018.  

Back in January, the host’s team revealed she would taking a hiatus and spending a “significant time” hospitalized due to complications related to the disease, including hyperthyroidism. On top of it all, Williams, who has previously battled a drug addiction, also admitted to her fans that she checked herself into a sober house.

“For some time now, and even today and beyond, I have been living in a sober house,” she said. “When you see me come to work, glammed up, right after the show I go across the street and do my pilates – I told you, two hours a day, I like to take care of my body, and you know I’ve had a struggle with cocaine in the past.”

Williams finally returned to TV in March, and as usual, she isn’t keeping secrets from her viewers. On a recent episode of The Wendy Williams Show, the host revealed that she has been diagnosed with lymphedema. She shared the latest setback in her health while discussing paparazzi photos that showed her legs looking swollen.

According to the Mayo Clinic, lymphedema is a chronic condition that is usually caused by the damage or removal of the lymph nodes. The blockage of the lymphatic system that results “prevents lymph fluid from draining well, and the fluid buildup leads to swelling” of the limbs.

Williams reassured fans that despite the condition being incurable, she “got it under control,” thanks to a special machine.

“It’s not going to kill me, but I do have a machine — and how dare you talk about the swelling of it all,” she said on the show. “If [the swelling] in my feet never goes all the way down, at least I have this machine,” she explained. “I sit for 45 minutes a day. It’s the best party entertainer ever. Everybody [that] comes over wants to do it.”

Beside swelling, symptoms of lympedema include feeling of heaviness or tightness in the affected limbs, restricted range of motion, pain, discomfort, bacterial infections and hardening of the skin.

If you have any of these symptoms, you should see a doctor right away. Early diagnosis is key in managing the condition.

Kudos to Williams for opening up about her health issues and bringing awareness to a condition that affects many people.

Jenelle Evans Answer Questions After Regaining Custody Of Kids

After months of drama and headlines, Jenelle Evans and her husband, David Eason, finally regained custody of their kids. Eason shot and killed the family dog, Nugget, for allegedly nipping at his young daughter Ensley, and it prompted a slew of complaints and a CPS investigation. Evans was fired from Teen Mom 2 as a result of the animal cruelty, and once authorities stepped in, her kids were taken away.

Just this past week, Evans regained custody of her 5-year-old son Kaiser with ex-fiancé Nathan Griffith and 2-year-old daughter Ensley whom she shares with Eason. Evans’ 9-year-old son Jace, who lives permanently with his grandmother, wasn’t allowed in the home during the investigation, but that has now been lifted. Eason’s 11-year-old daughter Maryssa, of whom he has full custody, was removed from the home as well, but is now back.

After the ruling, Evans released a statement that was a little strange to some people.

“I am ecstatic to regain custody of my kids back!” she said. “Throughout this long process and final decision, I am excited to be moving forward and continuing to show America I’m a good parent.”

Many fans found it weird that she was focused on proving to America that she’s a good parent, rather than proving it to her kids, but that’s neither here nor there.

Once the ruling came down, Griffith wasn’t thrilled with the result. He was noticeably upset after Kaiser was returned to Evans, and even tweeted out a survey for complaints against the judge on the case.

“I’ve calm down a bit and just relying on my faith at this moment,” he tweeted. “I’m not going to put my two cents in but if anyone wants to put their input, you can visit: https://survey.nccourts.org/1480690875 to complete a survey. Any input will help. The judge’s name is Pauline Hankins. TY #TeamGriffith.”

Other than the statement, Evans has been fairly silent about the whole thing. However, today she did a Q&A on her Instagram page that answered some questions that fans were curious about.

“How’s everything been since having all the kids back? Does [Jace] get to live with y’all too?”

“Everything and everyone is doing great,” Evans answered. “We are super grateful and happy. Jace will live with us full time soon but not now.”

As mentioned, Jace currently lives full time with Evans’ mom. The reality star wrote about this in her book, where she claimed that her mother tricked her into giving up custody of her son.

One night my mother convinced me to go out with my friends so I could relax,” Evans wrote. “My mother. Wanted me to relax. I took the bait, however, and went out for the evening with Tori. My mother had called [Child Protective Services] and told them I was out partying all night and left my son at home. She told them I did this pretty much every night, which was a lie. I tried to tell them she told me to go out, but they wouldn’t listen. They gave my mother temporary custody in light of my actions. My mother had set me up and I had fallen hard for it.”

“Do you think you and Nathan should have split custody or keep it the same? Why/why not?”

“Keep it the way it is now,” Evans said. “There’s a lot of details behind why there is supervised visits with Nathan.”

It’s not really clear what Evans means by this, but Griffith’s mom spoke out after Evans regained custody of Kaiser, saying her son was extremely upset and made it seem like Kaiser was in danger when he’s with Evans and Eason.

“Nathan is an absolute wreck over this,” Doris Davidson said. “He called me saying, ‘Mom, I can not believe this.’ Kaiser is so loved, sheltered and protected here, I felt like I was lying to him, when I told him I was going to protect him. I couldn’t protect him. My heart is broken, its just broken…We are in shock, absolute shock, at the judge’s decision.”

“What’s one thing you wish people would know about you?”

“I’m not as confrontational as people believe,” Evans said.

This one is a little hard to believe, as once Evans literally drove after a guy a who cut her off and threatened him with a gun – all while Jace was in the car.

“How does it feel to have your kids ripped from your arms & everyone calling you a horrible mom?”

“Doesn’t bother me what-so-ever because my babies are back in my arms,” Evans wrote. “Obviously that goes to show that some of you believe anything you read online and don’t know anything close to the truth.”

I guess it’s easy to say it doesn’t bother you once they’re back, but I can’t imagine Evans wasn’t bothered when she was going to court to fight for them back.

“What are your kids’ favorite activity to do with you and your husband?”

“Jace loves to fish with David,” Evans revealed. “Kaiser loves to play hunting outside, Maryssa does scuba a lot with him, and Ensley loves to swim/watch movies with him.”

Evans is clearly trying to paint a picture of her husband that is much more kind than we know him to be. Eason has had a history of violence, and part of the reason the kids were taken away was the authorities believed he could be a danger to them due to his temper.

“Why are you acting like you and David are good parents?”

“It’s not acting, it’s facts,” Evans bluntly put.

“Why should Nathan have supervised visits if he just kept [Kaiser] all that time alone? 50/50?”

“He didn’t keep Kaiser alone, and if he did then he would be in contempt of the custody order,” Evans pointed out. “But there’s a lot of behind the scene details why it’s supervised.”

Again, it’s not clear on what these “details” are, but clearly there’s a big piece of the puzzle we’re missing, or at least according to Evans there is.

“Will y’all consider letting [Maryssa] go to public school like the other kids?”

“Yes, she is going to,” Evans said. “I do want to point out she wanted to try out homeschooling to begin with.”

Maryssa is currently being home-schooled by her father, and it’s unclear who homeschooled her when she was removed from the home.

“Do you still have an open CPS case or did they close out? Is court with them done?”

“Court is completely done with,” Evans revealed. “The CPS case is dismissed. Everything they had as evidence was basically all hearsay.”

It’s hard to believe that a case full of hearsay would go on for two months, but until we hear otherwise, we only have Evans’ word to go off.

“Will you get your turn to tell your side of things at some point?”

“Yes, I’ve been filming/documenting my experience through all of this,” Evans wrote. “I will put it [all together] and let you guys see how my life was completely turned upside down soon.”

Since Evans was fired from Teen Mom 2, there won’t be any professionally filmed or documented footage of what went down, but it seems like Evans has things all sorted out.

“Is Nathan even allowed to share the complaint link he did yesterday?”

Instagram – Jenelle Evans

“IDK but he’s really immature for posting that,” Evans shared. “I’ve had many judges rule in a way that I didn’t like and never once did I posted a bad thing about the judge on social media. I find it extremely disrespectful.”

There probably isn’t a rule about posting a complaint form against a judge, but this is a situation where I agree with Evans – it was pretty immature.

“Was it a hard decision to stay with David after the dog incident?”

“Honestly, yes,” Evans admitted. “We were on bad terms for almost a week. Didn’t talk much. He knows how upset it made me. Now that we are getting over this incident our relationship has got a lot stronger. David has completed anger management as well.”

There were rumors that anger management was part of the court conditions before Evans and Eason could get their kids back, but that hasn’t been confirmed. The fact that the bad terms only lasted a week is pretty shocking. If my husband shot and killed our dog it would take a lot longer than that for me to get over it, if I ever could.

Nathan’s Girlfriend

Griffith’s current girlfriend, Ashley Lanhardt, have never gotten along, and she made that even more clear during her Q&A. In a since-deleted tweet, Evans was asked “Genuine question, have you ever invited Nathan and Ashley to your place for Kaiser’s sake?” The question comes on the heels of Griffith and Lanhardt inviting Eason and Evans to Kaiser’s 5th birthday party a few weeks back while Griffith had custody.

“Nope.. and there’s a damn good reason. As soon as Kaiser’s party was over Ashley had to go tweet some s**t about David but all nice to his face,” Jenelle tweeted, adding an emoji with rolling eyes. “Don’t trust her at all.”

Evans continued in an Instagram story, referencing a post that Lanhardt must have made on her private Facebook account.

“There was no findings of abuse or neglect despite what Ashley Lanhardt has posted to her Facebook,” Evans wrote. “I’ve known judge Hawkins for years and she is very fair with her rulings and you def don’t want to go in front of her for criminal charges.”

Lanhardt responded to Evans’ post on Twitter, saying “TY Jenelle Evans / Eason, (whatever name you are using today) for the name drop. Sorry guys I only approve people I personally know on FB. Girl, you must have some amazing stalking skills to see my private Facebook. I stand by everything I have said/posted. Who’s more credible?”

In the end, it’s up to the courts decide what’s right for the children, and they seem to think returning them to Evans and Eason was the right call. That doesn’t mean everyone will agree with it, though. It’s interesting to hear all of Evans’ answer, as it’s the most she’s spoken out about the situation in a while.

What do you think of Evans’ Q&A?

People Are Mom-Shaming Hilary Duff For Piercing Her Daughter’s Ears

There are very few things that get parents on the internet as riled up as piercing baby ears does. While some parents believe the act of piercing a baby’s earlobes is part of cultural tradition, others are convinced that it is a form of child abuse.

While debate over the issue quietened for a while, a photo posted by actress Hilary Duff has restarted the conversation recently.

The entertainer shared a black-and-white photo of herself and her daughter Banks on Instagram. Captioned, “Mama and 🍓, the sweet snap showed the eight-month-old’s ear with a tiny stud in it.

As soon as the photo was uploaded, people took to the comments to share their thoughts on baby Banks’ pierced ears. One fan said that they’ve “unfollowed” Duff because of her choice to pierce her daughter’s ears.

Another wrote, “I can’t believe someone who seemed so screwed on pierced her babies ears, causing unnecessary pain that isn’t for medical reasons done by a fully qualified medical professional is child abuse in my eyes.”

“I can’t fathom why you would you think it’s okay to have your daughter’s ears pierced,” one mom-shammer added. “Causing her a tremendous amount of pain and discomfort.”

Luckily, Duff has a strong fan base and they came to her defence.

Many pointed out that not only does Duff not need to seek other people’s approval when making parenting decisions, ear piercing is a tradition in many cultures. Others pointed out that both Banks and Duff look happy and that’s the only thing that matters.

This isn’t the first time that Duff has been subjected to mom-shaming. A few years ago, the mom-of-two received a ton of criticism after she posted a photo of herself kissing her son, Luca, on the lips.

“Kissing your child on the lips is not necessary,” wrote one Instagram user. “It may in time create a not healthy desire and it’s too close to what adults do.”

Duff eventually responded to the comments. She wrote, “For anyone commenting that a kiss on the lips with my four year old is ‘inappropriate’ go ahead and click a quick unfollow with your warped minds and judgment.”

In a 2018 interview, Duff recalled the mom-shaming comments she received over the kissing photo and revealed that she was also shamed for giving Luca, whose dad is retired hockey player Mike Comrie, piggybacks.

“People can be like, ‘Oh, you’re holding that child? He’s six.’ Yeah, I swing him over my head, when his legs are tired I hold him — it’s a little hard right now — but yeah, I give piggyback rides. People just have all these crazy judgments, and I think it’s best to not listen and laugh it off,” Duff told Allure.

She added, “Honestly, trying to put into perspective other people’s realities. The only thing that matters is you and your family and whatever choices you’re making, and how that choice feels for your family.”

Kudos to Duff for not letting the negative comments affect her or her family.

“Teen Mom” Star Arrested For Domestic Battery

It looks like there will be a lot to film for a new season of Teen Mom, after Amber Portwood was arrested for domestic battery. Portwood, who is the mother to 10-year-old Leah and 1-year-old James, was arrested on July 5th after her boyfriend, and the father of James, Andrew Glennon, contacted police.

Instagram – Andrew Glennon

“Just after 3:00 a.m., on 7.5.2019, officers were called to [address] reference a disturbance. Officers spoke to the male victim who stated his live-in-girlfriend and he were having a disagreement,” an Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department statement read. “During which time the female, later identified as Amber Portwood assaulted him, while he was holding their one-year-old child.”

Glennon apparently texted police for help.

“I received a text message from somebody saying that their life and their son’s life is in danger,” a dispatch recording from the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department said.

“Officers spoke to the male victim, who stated his live-in-girlfriend and he were having a disagreement,” a police spokesperson told Radar Online. “During which time the female, later identified as Amber Portwood, assaulted him, while he was holding their 1-year-old child.”

Instagram – Amber Portwood

This is not the first time that Portwood has run into troubles with the law. The reality star was charged with domestic battery in 2010 after striking Gary Shirley, the father of her daughter. She also served 17 months in prison, getting released in 2013, on drug charges. Portwood has always been very open about her struggles after being diagnosed with bipolar disorder and borderline personality disorder.

In 2017, Portwood was accused of domestic abuse against her then-fiancé Matt Baier, but those accusations were denied by both of them once the story hit the newswaves.

“Five years ago, I made the decision to choose prison over rehab in order to fully turn my life around. Since then, I’ve worked hard to make serious changes for myself, for my daughter, and for all the fans who supported me,” Portwood told E! News at the time. “I’m saddened by the latest rumors, which are both of untrue and unfounded, but plan to continue to stay focused on my recovery and being the best person I can be for everyone in my life.”

Shirley has spoken out on the arrest of the mother of his child, with whom he’s always had a rocky relationship, although recently they have been able to coparent well.

“My prayers are with @AmberLPortwood, Andrew, & most importantly baby James, idk any of the particulars, however I’m thinking of them,” Shirley wrote on Twitter. “And for all the questions and concerns Leah was/is currently camping with her best friend.”


Portwood is due in court on July 8th for her most recent arrest, and it’s unclear whether she’ll enter a plea.

There’s Finally An Update on Jenelle Evans’ Custody Case

Jenelle Evans has finally received a ruling after losing custody of her kids in May. Evans, who was a star on Teen Mom 2, made headlines after her husband, David Eason, shot and killed the family dog for nipping at their two-year-old daughter, Ensley. The situation blew up, and resulted not only in Evans getting fired from the MTV show, but also the kids being removed from her care.

At first, it was five-year-old Kaiser who Evans shares with ex-fiancé Nathan Griffith that was taken away from the home. Evans spoke out on the removal of her son at the time.

“Kaiser was taken from his daycare by his grandmother with no notice or call to me,”the reality star said to Us Weekly. “CPS told Doris to take Kaiser without my consent and still have no legal paperwork signed by the judge stating my kids are taken from me. Nathan and I have talked briefly regarding this situation. [He] and I are to appear in court later this month.”

“Our current custody order is still in place,” Evans said of her arrangement with Griffith. “Nathan is to have supervised visits and only supervised by Doris. Surprisingly, me and Nathan have been getting along, so I’m willing to maybe let his visits be unsupervised. Me and Nathan have been in contact during all of this. He doesn’t want Kaiser taken from me. My legal team has been on this since it [occurred]. I’ve been fighting to get my son back, as they went behind my back and removed him without my consent.”

Then, it was Ensley who was taken away. The toddler was put in the care of Evans’ mom, Barbara, who also has full custody of Evans’ first son, nine-year-old Jace. After Ensley was taken from them, Evans and Eason were in court to find out when they would be getting their kids back. At the time, it was bad news. In May, the couple lost custody of their kids.

“The judge told Jenelle that she failed to protect the children while they were in her care,” an insider said. “The judge heard testimony that David and Jenelle were constantly screaming and arguing, and the children were terrified. CPS described the state of the home as horrific. It was filthy, and there were holes in all of the walls.”

“Jenelle was sobbing in court,” the source said. “Jenelle believed that her lawyer was going to be able to get her children back and she seemed stunned when this happened. Jenelle is standing by David. Despite what happened, she has no plans to leave him.”

Evans’ manager Johnny Donovan told Us Weekly: “At this time we are cooperating with the judge and legal team from court. We have no comment at this time and we appreciate the concerns regarding our client and her children. We will continue to cooperate with the court and their decisions.”

Despite that heartbreak, it seems as though things are taking a turn for the better as Evans and Eason were given their children back on July 3, 2019.

The news comes not long after the couple called 911 on Barbara Evans, saying she locked Ensley in a room while she went to take a shower and then the door got stuck.

“David and I were on FaceTime with Jace when we heard my mom say to Ensley, ‘Come here, I have to take a shower.’ Then she took Ensley in the other room, and we immediately heard her screaming and crying,” Jenelle exclusively told Us.

“We asked Jace what was going on, and he said my mom locked Ensley in the bedroom so she can take a shower,” Jenelle added. “We told Jace to get the door open, and when he couldn’t get the door open, we called 911 for help because all we could hear was Ensley screaming.”

Evans had also called 911 for a welfare check on the kids after hearing a lot of “screaming.”

“I’m actually calling to have a welfare check done on my two children, Jace Evans and Ensley Eason,” the reality star said in the recording. “My mother right now is taking care of my two children. And she just called me, and I’m just trying to call and check on my kids, and I hear a lot of screaming and yelling in the background. I don’t know what’s being said. She’s screaming and yelling and carrying on about the kids, saying that my son is hitting my daughter. And now she refuses to answer the phone, so I would just a welfare check done, if that’s possible.”

In theory, the kids are going to be safe and sound back at the home, although Eason has been proven to have extreme anger issues in the past, so who knows what’s in store. For now, at least. Evans is “ecstatic” to have her kids back.

“I am ecstatic to regain custody of my kids,” she told Us. “Throughout this long process and final decision, I am excited to be moving forward and continuing to show America I’m a good parent.”

As of right now, it’s unclear whether or not there are conditions to Eason and Evans regaining custody of the kids, like anger management or marriage counseling.

Do you think Jenelle and David should have gotten their kids back?

Joy-Anna Duggar Shares Heartbreaking Miscarriage News

Just months ago, Joy-Anna Forsyth (neé Duggar) and her husband, Austin, announced they were expecting their second child. The reality stars already welcomed son Gideon last year, and they were excited to give him a sibling.

“Our favorite math is addition and we are very excited to share that the Forsyth family is adding a member!” they said in May. “Marriage and being a mom and dad to Gideon has already far exceeded our expectations. We are looking forward to loving another little one and seeing what special dynamic he or she brings to our family. Table for 4 sounds perfect!”

Tragically, five months into her pregnancy, Joy-Anna announced that she had suffered a miscarriage. The couple shared the name of their daughter, who was stillborn a week before the announcement.

Today marks one week since we heard these words….“So this is your baby’s heart (pointing to the ultrasound screen). I don’t hear a heartbeat or see any movement.”

We had gone in for our 20-week ultrasound and gender reveal. It was a baby girl.Although we don’t understand why, God has given us unexplainable peace and comfort during this very difficult time. Yes, it still hurts and we have cried countless tears, but we know that we can trust the Lord. In the words of King David after the loss of his baby, “I shall go to him, but he shall not return to me” (2 Sam 12:23).

We don’t grieve as those who have no hope because we trust that we will see this little one again.

We named her Annabell Elise. Annabell means “God has favored me”, and Elise means “God satisfies”. What a precious thing to know that when our daughter opened her eyes, the first thing she saw was the face of Jesus.Please pray for continued healing, not only physically but for our hearts as well.

“All the way my Savior leads me; What have I to ask beside?Can I doubt His tender mercy, Who through life has been my Guide?Heav’nly peace, divinest comfort, Here by faith in Him to dwell!For I know, whate’er befall me, Jesus doeth all things well,For I know, whate’er befall me, Jesus doeth all things well.”

-Fanny Crosby

The news was absolutely heartbreaking, especially when you remember that grandma Mary Duggar also passed away less than a month ago. Family members shared their condolences on social media, including Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar.

“We were so sad to hear that Joy and Austin’s baby girl passed away mid-way through their pregnancy,” they said. “The pain of losing a child is unimaginable. Yet, for the one whose hope is in God, there is a peace that surpasses our finite understanding. We pray that God will comfort Joy and Austin and carry them through this difficult time. —Mom & Pops Duggar”

“Joy Joy & Austin, our hearts break for y’all with the loss of your precious Annabell Elise 💔🌸,” sister Jill wrote. “May God continue to give y’all peace and comfort in the days ahead. 💞We love y’all dearly! 😘❤️”

Jessa, who just gave birth to a daughter recently, also shared her condolences.

“Our hearts are breaking over your loss. Such beautiful words you’ve written in your post. ❤️,” she said. “Annabell will forever be in our hearts. We love you all and are praying for God’s peace and comfort during this time.”

Hours after announcing the tragic news, Joy-Anna posted pictures of her and Austin holding Annabell.

We only had her for 20 weeks, Life is fragile and precious. So thankful the Lord gave her to us for that short time! She will be in our hearts forever!💝😇.

Thank you all for your love and support! We can feel the prayers!💕

Thank you, @carlinbates98 for coming to town to be here for me and for doing my hair and makeup for pictures with our little girl!💖

We are so sorry to hear about Joy-Anna and Austin’s tragic loss, and we hope they can find strength in the Lord to move forward.

Chrissy Teigan Mom-Shamed Over Daughter’s Nail Polish

Despite her cleaver and hilarious responses to previous mom-shaming comments, Chrissy Teigen is yet again at the center of another heated parenting debate.

What is the fiasco about this time? Nail polish on her daughter Luna’s toes.

The model, cookbook author and mom of two recently took to Twitter to let her followers in on a special moment between her and Luna.

“Doing her nails is my knitting. Kid toes kill me!” Teigen wrote in the tweet, accompanied by a video showing the toddler’s toes painted red.

Teigen’s innocent post was well received by most people, with some parents even sharing photos of their children’s pedicures. However, there were a few critics who called out the Lip Sync Battle co-host for exposing her three-year-old child to the dangerous chemicals in the polish.

“Applying poisonous chemicals directly onto a child’s body cannot be good, one user wrote in a now-deleted tweet. “Whatever poisons are in polish are absorbed through the nail and directly into their body.”

Teigen, who is never one to pass up an opportunity to dish out a witty response, replied with: “Well I actually had her drink it, so joke’s on you.”

This is just the second time in two weeks that Teigen’s parenting choices were questioned. After sharing a photo of Luna’s first visit to the dentist, a user commented that the three-year-old should’ve been to the dentist sooner.

“What age do they start over there? My daughter started seeing a dentist at a [year] old,” the user wrote.

“Was waiting for this. U guys never fail me,” Teigen, who is no stranger to unsolicited opinions, replied.

A few weeks earlier, after Teigen shared a video of Luna negotiating for candy, another user made a snarky comment regarding the state of the young girl’s hair.

“Finally someone brushed her hair,” read the comment.

Again, Teigen wasted no time in firing back.  She wrote: “All by herself! Maybe she can come do your makeup.”

Although both celebrity mothers and fathers get shamed for their choices, it seems like the moms receive the most criticism. Teigen can definitely handle her own, but her husband John Legend thinks she should be given a break. In an interview with Us Weekly, he explained that it is only fair that he get some of that criticism too.  

“On our first date after Luna was born, everyone critiqued [Teigen],” the Grammy-winning singer told the publication recently. “‘Why are you going out two weeks after your baby was born?’ But they didn’t critique me. I spoke out about it then. She spoke about it. I think hopefully people are learning that Chrissy and I are a partnership and if you’re going to parent shame us, do it to us as a partnership.”

Teigen appears unfazed by the criticism, and has continued to share content on her social media pages. Even though being on the receiving end of mom-shaming is never a pleasant experience, there’s solace in knowing that Teigen does not let people get away with this kind of behaviour.

Farrah Fawcett’s Loved Ones Reveal Her Last Words

On June 25, 2009, the world one of its most iconic actresses, Farrah Fawcett. The Charlie’s Angels star passed away at the age of 62 from complications of anal cancer.

The actress was diagnosed with the fatal disease three years earlier. She filmed her subsequent doctor’s appointments and shared the footage in the candid documentary Farrah’s Story, released just six weeks before her death.

“She wanted people to see the raw truth of cancer, for better or worse,” said her friend and co-producer Alana Stewart. “Right until the end, she wanted to fight the fight. She wanted to make a difference.”

This year marks the 10-year anniversary of Fawcett’s death and those closest to her have been opening up to media outlets about the star’s final days.

Stewart spoke to People about the Farrah Fawcett Foundation, which the actress established to raise funds for and bring awareness to HPV-related cancers.  

“Farrah didn’t give up. She was relentless in her fight and in finding a cure. That is her greatest legacy, her foundation,” Stewart explained. “Farrah was a person of action. It was more about action than talking about it.”

Another one of Fawcett’s close friends, Mela Murphy, also spoke with the publication, revealing what it was like to be by the actress’s side through the ordeal.

“I always thought she was going to pull through,” admitted Murphy, who was also Fawcett’s hairdresser. “Even after the chemotherapy was causing her hair to come out in clumps and she shaved her head, Farrah wanted to do a photo shoot completely bald. ‘Go for it,’ I told her. She looked so gorgeous with those high cheekbones. She had no reservations. She was about going forward.”

Murphy also revealed details about her famous friend’s final moments, including her last words. Even in her final hours, Fawcett wanted to make sure that her loved ones would be taken care of when she’s gone.

“She was saying his name, ‘Redmond,’” Murphy, who was by Fawcett’s side at St. John’s Health Center in Los Angeles, told People. “That was the last thing she said.”

Redmond is the name of Fawcett’s son with actor Ryan O’Neal. At the time, the troubled 34-year-old was battling drug addiction and had been in prison on drug charges.

“I told her I’d take care of him, that I’ll always be there for him,” Murphy said. “I said, ‘You can go now.’ It was just a few hours before she died.”

Beside that poignant moment, Murphy recalled sneaking in a bottle of Kahlua into the hospital room. While Fawcett could no longer have fluids, Murphy “dipped a swab in it and gave it to her.”

“Kahlua and milk, that was our drink…she looked at me and laughed,” Murphy said.

Fawcett’s funeral was held five days after she died. According to Murphy, her only wish was that “she wanted he mother’s ashes in the coffin.”

“Her mother meant so much to her,” Murphy said. “So Ryan made sure they were brought over from Texas. That was Farrah. She always thought about the people she loved.”

Fawcett is buried at Westwood Memorial Park Cemetery in Los Angeles. Regardless of how much time has gone by, the icon is still missed by many.

Khloe Kardashian “Throwing Up Blood” Before Jordyn Woods Cheating Scandal, Plus More Juicy Details

I’ll be the first to admit that the Khloe Kardashain/Tristan Thompson/Jordyn Woods cheating scandal is frivolous and a little bit trashy. Does it really make a difference to anyone in the world other than them? Not at all. But is it fun listening in to drama that doesn’t concern or affect you whatsoever? Absolutely.

On the first part of the season finale of Keeping Up With The Kardashians, Khloe and the entire family really got into the juicy details of the scandal, and gave us some important pieces of information, including a health scare, suicidal talks, and radio silence from one of the parties involved.

Instagram – Tristan Thompson

Are you ready to dive deep into some Kardashian drama? Here we go!

Khloe’s Medical Scare

Before the scandal even broke, Khloe was dealing with some issues. The 34-year-old mom to baby True told viewers that she had been experiencing bad migraines for a couple of months, and things got so bad she was throwing up blood.

“I get really bad migraines but they’ve been increasing more and more. And I don’t know if my migraines and nausea are caused by the same thing, I’m not really sure,” she said. “Some days I feel great and I don’t feel nauseous at all and I don’t have a headache and I’m fine. And then the next day, the slightest thing might really upset me, and I get blindsided by them.”

Khloe’s sister, 21-year-old Kylie Jenner, suggested that Khloe take a pregnancy test to rule out that as a possibility. Luckily, it came back negative.

“Obviously you can’t plan everything, but I just don’t know if the right time is [now] — there’s a lot going on,” she said. “I don’t know if I could have handled it if it did say ‘positive’ at the moment. I’m happy that I’m not pregnant because I didn’t want to be, but with that being said, now I’m like, ‘Why the f— am I nauseous all the time?’ I almost wish I was so I could say that’s why I’m nauseous.”

“Literally my whole head feels bruised because it’s been pounding for so long and it’s terrifying,” she said. “I’m supposed to go to Cleveland tomorrow to see Tristan, but the way I’m feeling right now, I don’t know if I can be on a flight like that. I’ve been throwing up blood. It’s so intense. I’m blind in my left eye.”

Khloe ended up canceling her trip to Cleveland and instead scheduled an MRI to find out what was causing her migraines.

The News Breaks

Perhaps what Khloe was experiencing was some kind of psychic warning, as almost immediately after her MRI, the news of Tristan and Jordyn cheating broke in the media.

“Tristan has a couple of his guy friends in town for All-Star weekend, so he rented an Airbnb for the boys to stay at,” Khloe explained in the show. “Tristan went to an afterparty. Jordyn was there. Tristan never came home.”

It was friend Larsa Pippen that broke the news to sister Kim Kardashian, saying that “Tristan and Jordyn were all over each other last night.” Khloe knew that she had to go straight to the source, so she called Jordyn to find out what was going on.

“She’s not giving me all the information,” Khloe said of her phone call with Jordyn. “She was like, ‘He was trying to kiss me’ and was like, ‘I can’t remember if we did or didn’t.’ … I said, ‘If you are too nervous to tell me something, you can text me.’ And she said, ‘Okay, I’ll call you in five minutes.’ She hasn’t called me and that was like, 20 minutes ago.”

Kylie was on the phone Khloe as well when she called her sisters, and even the billionaire makeup mogul was blindsided, despite Jordyn being her best friend.

“It’s very weird,” admitted Kylie, 21. “This is the first time I’m hearing she was sitting on his lap.”

“It was weird that she didn’t text me at all that evening. ‘Cause every single time in the past, if Jordyn would ever see Tristan, she’d text me,” Khloe said. “So Jordyn called me and said, ‘I was your watchdog last night.’ She was there to protect me and keep an eye out, so that’s why she stayed as late as she did.”

Finally, Jordyn called Khloe back and admitted that her and Tristan made out at his party.

“She’s like, ‘I just can’t believe this is happening. I’m so confused,’ ” Khloe said, recounting the conversation to her sisters. “Like, you’re confused? She was like, ‘I love you, my loyalty is always to you.’ “

“This is the biggest contradiction ever,” said Kim.

“I’m literally shaking,” said Kourtney. “I’m so furious.”

“Wow,” said Kylie. “Why would you tell tell me, ‘Oh, I saw Tristan at a house party,’ knowing in the back of your mind what you did?”

Then, Khloe confronted Tristan about it and he began to crumble.

Tristan Admits It, Starts To Spiral

Instagram – Tristan Thompson

“Tristan admitted it,” Kim revealed. “Didn’t you see the text messages Tristan sent? He fully admitted it to her. … Khloe got confirmation from Tristan that Jordyn and Tristan were at his home until 7 in the morning and that something had happened, whether it was as small as a kiss or they were really making out.”

Instagram – Tristan Thompson

Khloe said that Tristan, the father of her child, was full of remorse and knew he had been caught.

“Once Tristan finally landed in Cleveland, he saw my millions of text messages,” she said. “He already knew what was up and there was nothing else he could do but confirm it. I got my questions answered. … Everyone left and Jordyn stayed. She was sitting on his lap on a chair, they were all over each other, they were handsy. They made out. It’s disgusting. I’ll never understand the depths of this … I was just hoping for a better outcome for my daughter and for myself.”

During a conversation with Scott Disick, Khloe’s brother-in-law, Khloe began relaying some of Thompson’s texts.

“He’s like, ‘I can’t stop thinking about you and what mess I have caused,’” she said. “He’s doing this to get a reaction out of me. Oh, so I’m just allowed to say ‘I’m going to kill myself’ at any time? That’s crazy.”

The Family’s Reaction

Instagram – Jordyn Woods

The Kardashian family is nothing if not protective of their own, and they were clearly furious with how the situation went down.

“From the moment this story broke about Jordyn and Tristan, at first, nobody even believed that it was real,” Kim said. “I just feel so bad for Khloe. Jordyn was someone that Khloe really trusted and believed in and supported and employed and all of the above. This is just so crazy.”

Instagram – Jordyn Woods

“Jordyn?! She is the last person on the planet that I would have said would have done this,” said Kendall Jenner, who usually does her best to keep out of the family’s public drama. “Even if he kissed her and she was taken off guard, she calls Kylie, tells Kylie exactly what happened. That’s what I would do.”

YouTube – Keeping Up With The Kardashians

“Jordyn is the only one that can give Khloe information, and she has gone radio silent now,” Kim continued. “It just must be such a frustrating situation for Khloe to be in, not knowing what’s going on and just wanting answers.”

“Here’s the thing about Khloe and Tristan,” she said. “It really took a lot of strength from Khloe to try to make this work for her family and give it a second shot after everything that she had been through. It just sucks because she’s my sister and my best friend, and the fact that she’s going through something, just really, really hurts.”

“The fact that Khloe is sitting here heartbroken but still worrying about Tristan’s feelings and the possibilities of him being upset or possibly hurting himself — I mean, it just goes to show that Khloe is an unbelievable person that loves so hard and so much,” said Scott. “Somehow she just keeps getting the short end of the stick, and it’s unfair and it’s hurtful and it’s really hard for me to sit and watch.”

Jordyn’s Backtracking

The fact that it was Jordyn who did this to Khloe really made everyone reevaluate their relationships. Khloe said that even though she’s not blaming Jordyn wholly for what happened, she’s still shocked.

“I just think everyone is so twisted. Jordyn didn’t think about me, she didn’t think about Kylie … she didn’t think about my daughter. She didn’t think about Tristan. And she didn’t think about herself,” Khloe said. “They’re both at fault. I’m not blaming just Jordyn. Tristan, we’ve all known what he was capable of. Look what he did when I was nine months pregnant. I knew who he was. I never in a million years thought that’s who she was.”

What really surprised her was when Jordyn tried to backtrack and downplay the whole thing.

“Now [Jordyn is] like, ‘It wasn’t a big deal. It wasn’t intimate, it wasn’t sexual,’ ” she continued. “That wasn’t at all what she said on the phone to me. That’s fine, now she’s downplaying it. I’m not saying things can’t happen. I am the most understanding, calm person ever. But Jordyn never once has she said, ‘I’m sorry.’”

The Kylie Connection

Of course, Kylie and Jordyn were best friends before all this went down, with Jordyn even living in Kylie’s guest house.

“Kylie and Jordyn have been friends since they were in middle school,” mom Kris Jenner said. “They live together at Kylie’s house. I mean, Jordyn and Kylie are as close as you can get. I’ve always felt like she was another daughter. It’s really tough when you go through a major betrayal. It’s hard to believe that Jordyn was involved in this, and I am so disappointed in Tristan. I feel heartbroken for Khloe. She really wanted this relationship with Tristan to work.”

Kylie has tried to keep out of this whole thing publicly, but on last week’s episode she acknowledged that she was ‘scared’ of her friend after what she did.

“I called her and she didn’t really say anything. She was just like crying the whole time. And I was just telling her, like, ‘I’m scared of you now. That you’re capable of waking up the next morning with a smile on your face,'” she said. “And then I pretty much told her exactly what we’ve been talking about, like, ‘You weren’t thinking about True, not Khloe, not me, but you weren’t even thinking about yourself. Look what you did. You can do whatever, but when it effects my family, me, that’s when it’s a problem.”

Clearly, the Kardashians are standing their ground when it comes to those who betray them. Khloe is being civil with Tristan for the sake of True, but that’s as far as she’ll go. As for Jordyn and Kylie, Kylie says it’s “never going to be the same again.”

I guess they call it “Keeping Up With The Kardashians” because keeping up with all their drama is exhausting!

11 Gosselin Controversies We Still Can’t Believe Happened

It’s hard to really grasp just how big of a phenomenon Jon and Kate Plus 8 was. For years, the show was basically required viewing, if only to see what kind of petty fight Jon and Kate would get into that episode. But after the couple split, the show ended, and our source of drama was cut short.

Or so we thought.


As it turns out, the Gosselin family has remained a source of drama and entertainment until now, even if they don’t mean to be. Kate ended up getting her own show, Kate Plus 8, and then another new show called Kate Plus Date, but it’s the drama that her and Jon caused off screen that really has been grabbing peoples’ attention.

Here are some of the craziest scandals from the Gosselin family.

1. Collin Gosselin Sent Away Without Jon’s Knowledge


The biggest scandal, in my opinion, happened when Kate decided to send away one of the sextuplets, Collin, because of “behavioral” issues.

“This is a work in progress for him that we’ve sought many specialists help on,” Kate confessed on an episode of Kate Plus 8. “There are changes coming for him. I think it will result in a change of school for him for this upcoming year and beyond that, we’ll see.”


Kate has never admitted what the diagnosis is, just saying that it’s been a struggle.

“[There’s] a fairly fluid diagnosis of what those needs are,” Kate said at the time. “But he needs to learn certain strategies to help him deal with things. This has been a struggle we’ve had for a very long time, and it’s one I’ve dealt with on my own. I’ve felt very alone in this. By the same token, it’s not something that has only impacted me or him. Our entire family has been impacted.”

From the sounds of it, Collin is dealing with some sort of autism, as a source said the stimulation of being on camera was too much for him to handle.

“Kate doesn’t want Collin on camera very much because all the stimulation can be difficult for him,” a source close to the Gosselins said. “Kate decided to send him to a facility because she thought it was best for him. Now it seems that Collin is flourishing, and he’s responding very well to one-on-one instruction. He definitely finds it easier to function and cope better without all the chaos that his home life entails.”

Instagram – Jon Gosselin

Sending your kid away from the family is one thing, and can definitely have its merits depending on the diagnosis. But, ,he craziest part of all this is that it happened without Jon’s knowledge.

“I have an idea where he is but I don’t really know where he is,” Jon told ET. “[Kate] says that Collin is in a special school for special needs kids with behavioral problems. I mean, I ask but she doesn’t tell me. She doesn’t answer any of my texts.”

Instagram – Jon Gosselin

It’s not clear what the custody arrangement between Jon and Kate was at the time, but it sounded like it might be a sole custody situation for Kate. Jon didn’t really understand why Collin had to be sent away, but did acknowledge he can see why some of his siblings might get frustrated with him.

“I could see my kids getting annoyed with that because he’s the smartest and he does this, and he does that, and he always wants it his way,” he said. “He’s very particular, which could be bothersome. But, he’s very loving too. He was a cuddly kid as a baby.”

2. Kate Goes “Broke”

ABC News

Something that really caught peoples’ attention in 2013 was when Kate said she was basically living from paycheck to paycheck.

“I’m living very carefully these days,” the mother-of-eight said, adding that “to not have a reliable income is scary.”

A source close to Gosselin confirmed that she was struggling financially, mainly because she wasn’t filming as frequently as she used to be.

“Kate no longer has the income she once had from the show,” the source said. “The money is running out fast. Private school alone costs about $150,000 a year. She’s let her nursing license lapse and she hasn’t been a nurse in so long anyway.”

It’s possible that the lack of income is what prompted Kate to start her new dating show, but it hasn’t been released how much she’s getting paid to do it.

3. Jon Has An Affair


Many people figured Kate’s short temper and belittling of Jon is what ultimately ended their marriage – and it may have been – but it probably didn’t help that Jon had a three-month affair with a 23-year-old teacher Deanna Hummel while he and Kate were still married.

Deanna’s brother, Jason, confirmed the affair, and said he was speaking out to protect his sister.

“She’s a nice girl, not a homewrecker,” Jason said. “He is a bad liar. This isn’t healthy for her. But she is refusing to help herself, so here I am trying to help her myself. I hope this clears the air. A lot of the time, it was pretty, um, gross listening to her, you know, um, how do I say this? The walls are thin. Let’s just say that. I mean, no one wants to hear his sister having sex, let alone with a married dude who’s, like, almost twice her age and who has eight kids and a maybe-crazy wife. Ick. Nast.”

Nast indeed, Jason. Nast indeed.

4. Kate Loses Custody of Collin

Instagram – Kate Gosselin

This piece of news was particularly shocking, considering how hard Kate has worked in the past to keep her kids away from Jon. Collin had started appearing on his father’s Instagram page more frequently, as Jon would visit him at his in-patient treatment. When it was coming close to the time that Collin would be released, Jon filed for sole custody of Collin. He believed it was in Collin’s best interest to live with him and not Kate.

The day before the court date, Kate asked for the hearing to be pushed to accommodate her schedule. The court denied her request, but Kate and her lawyer still decided not to show up. Because of their poor judgement call and lack of attendance, the court awarded Jon with custody of Collin.

“Jon won sole physical and sole legal custody of Collin,” a source told Us Weekly. “All other matters were moved to a future court date.”

5. Kate Accuses Jon of “Inappropriate” Relationship With Daughter


You can put this in the file of “Gross and Terrible Things to Accuse Your Child’s Father Of.” In 2015, Kate and Jon found themselves at the center of a police investigation after Kate filed a report saying that her ex-husband was a drug dealer who was having an “inappropriate” relationship with their daughter Hannah. The complaint also stated that Jon kidnapped Hannah by picking her up from school.

“She just didn’t want to go home. She wasn’t getting out of the car, she just had a fear, and I wasn’t going to discuss it at the end [of the] driveway,” Jon said of the incident. “So, Leah went down, Aiden went down and Joel went down [to the gate of Kate’s house], and then I just texted Kate.”

Instagram – Jon Gosselin

“I’m like, ‘I’m taking Hannah back,’ and of course she flipped out,” he continued. “So, I was like, ‘You know where I live, here’s my address again in case you forgot it. You know you can call me.’ I kept Hannah and she just explained she was really stressed out and all this stuff, so I kept her [at my house] and Kate called the cops and filed a police report against me.”

Instagram – Jon Gosselin

Kate also called police when Jon tried to pick up Hannah from an orthodontist appointment. The two got into a verbal argument, and the police had to break it up.

The Wyomissing Police Department issue this statement on the interaction:

The call came in at 1:10 this afternoon for a verbal domestic argument … over the custody of one of their 13-year-old daughters. No one was arrested and the daughter did go home with the father after she expressed that was her desire to do.

There was a fairly lengthy argument as far as both parents had conflicting versions of a child custody agreement. Basically, both stated something different and we referred the matter over to our county district attorney. The district attorney then reviewed it and … the district attorney’s words were that the order was sufficiently vague to interpret who was supposed to actually have custody today.

Both parents read their version of the order and thought they should have had custody of the child today. So, we referred them back to the court system to try and get clarification from the court system on who’s supposed to have the child on certain days.


I can’t imagine stooping so low as to claim your child’s father is a drug dealer and having an inappropriate relationship with her, all because she wanted to go home with him instead of her.

6. Jon Goes On A Tirade About Kate

Steve Harvey Show

Jon clearly doesn’t agree with how Kate chooses to live her life, and he made sure everyone knew it in an interview with Philadelphia magazine.

“She tweets everything,” he complained. “To the world, all about my children. I think it’s disgusting and awful. They can’t even have a normal life.”

He also spoke to rumors that he’s “out to get” his ex-wife, and went on a tirade about her that really left jaws on the floor.

“Everyone thinks I’m out to get Kate. I don’t give a f**k!” he said. “What would I get out of it? Everyone knows she’s an asshole, you know what I mean? I don’t have to—she’s proven that! Kate wants to still be on television. She’s now digging into the past, because that’s what sells. Too late, honey. No one gives a f**k, really.”

Tell us how you really feel, Jon.

7. Hannah Chooses To Leave Kate


As noted when she wanted to stay with her dad and his girlfriend, Colleen, instead of Kate, Hannah has always been partial to Jon. Maybe it’s because he’s not broadcasting their lives on TV, who knows? But Hannah became noticeably absent in her mother’s Instagram posts about the other sextuplets, and began popping up on her dad’s page more frequently.

Instagram – Colleen Conrad

Finally, Jon posted a message that pretty much solidified that Hannah had chosen to live with him full time.

“Congrats Hannah on your first day of school, proud of you,” Jon wrote. “I admire your bravery starting fresh!!! I Love you very much and we have worked really hard to get here. Dedication has really paid off. I’m so happy you integrated yourself into the community, you made friends all summer and now you will grow and graduate with them. I’m honored to be your father!!! Love you, Dad #newbeginnings

Instagram – Colleen Conrad

Hannah has since been in more and more pictures with her dad and Collin, and seems to be happy with her decision to move in with Jon.

8. Kate Sued For Not Paying Marriage Counseling Bill


In 2011, two years after Jon and Kate announced their divorce, a marriage counseling company came after Kate for an unpaid bill of $10,476. Dr. Sylvia Lafair, the head of the organization suing Kate, said she tried reaching out to the reality star but wasn’t getting a response. This was her next best option.

“There are commitments that people make…and they should be followed through,” she said of Kate’s refusal to pay.

In court, Kate said she never had a contract with the company so she shouldn’t have to pay, but a judge saw it differently. He ordered her to pay the bill in its full amount.


9. Kate Gets Fired From A Coupon Job

After Jon and Kate split, the single mother was looking for ways to make some extra money. She got a job with a site called CouponCabin.com and was blogging about ways to save money. However, the job didn’t even last a year before Kate was publicly fired via an open letter from the company.

A series of recent events have made it clear to me that Kate Gosselin and her contributions do not align with the authenticity which we set out to build almost a decade ago, and that Ms. Gosselin is simply not a good fit with the wonderful team and culture at CouponCabin.

It’s with this that I am writing to inform you of our decision to discontinue Ms. Gosselin’s feature blog on CouponCabin.com. Ms. Gosselin’s contributions garnered both positive attention and criticism, but as always, I respect and appreciate your candid opinions, which often encourage us not to lose sight of our mission — to help YOU save money.

Coupon Cabin

These “recent events” were never exposed, but I’m extremely curious to find out what you need to do in order to get fired from coupon blogging.

10. Collin and Alexis Are Expelled

Instagram – Colleen Conrad

Before Collin was sent away from behavioral problems, he and his sextuplet sister were causing problems at their school. In 2010, it was reported that Collin and Alexis were both expelled from their school after causing numerous disturbances by abusing students and adults alike.

“Both Jon and Kate were sent a letter from the head of school explaining that despite their best efforts, staff had reached a point at which they had to request the children enroll in another program,” a source close to the school said. “Both Alexis and Collin received three full weeks of intensive special treatment to focus their behavior. While the teacher was able to achieve some success, it became apparent to the school that the pair needed intensive assistance to help them with their social, emotional and academic needs.”

Instagram – Kate Gosselin

Kate, however, saw the situation differently. She adamantly denied that two of her kids were expelled from the school, saying that word was never used.

“The school would never use that word,” she said. “[Collin and Alexis] were not expelled. [The school] did not feel like they could meet their needs anymore, so it was decided they should leave, for now.”


Call a rose by any other name…

11. Jon Doesn’t Pay Child Support

With eight kids between them, it would be fair to assume that some type of child support is paid by either Jon or Kate. However, Jon admitted in 2013 that he doesn’t pay child support since the kids spend time at both his and Kate’s houses.

“[Kate and I] both support [the children] financially because she takes care of school and all that stuff but I take care of the exact same things she takes care of,” he explained. “I buy their own groceries, they have their own groceries at my house, their own bedrooms, their own stuff, it’s doubled.”

Instagram – Kate Gosselin

However, in 2018, it seems this little agreement between the couple was no longer valid, as Kate sued Jon for $132,875 in child support. Kate claimed that Jon breached an “agreement” they had, but Jon’s lawyer pointed out that Kate did “not provide any proof of the language of that agreement,” and said she was asking for an “inappropriate” amount of money.

The outcome of this lawsuit either hasn’t been made public, or hasn’t been settled, but it’s probably safe to say Kate isn’t going to see that money. Kate’s net worth is listed at $200,000, while Jon’s is listed at $10,000.

It’s been 10 years since Jon and Kate announced they were separating, but they never stopped landing in the spotlight.

What’s the craziest Jon and Kate moment you remember?

Jessa Duggar Reveals Odd Place She Ended Up Giving Birth

Jessa Seewald (neé Duggar) and her husband, Ben Seewald, recently welcomed their third child. Their daughter, Ivy Jane, was born on May 26th, and joined her brothers Spurgeon and Henry as part of the Seewald family. The couple made the announcement on the family website.

Instagram – Jessa Seewald

Ivy Jane Seewald was welcomed into the world Sunday, May 26th. We were getting ready for church when my water broke, and we were thinking ‘Well, I guess we have a change of plans! After three and a half hours of labor, Ivy was born at 5:57pm.

Her due date was June 5th, and since both of our boys went five days past their due date, we thought we would go late again. We were so surprised when she came two weeks earlier than her brothers. We definitely weren’t expecting that!

Ivy was born at home weighing 7lbs 14oz and 20 1/2 inches long. She feels so tiny compared to her siblings! Spurgeon was born at nearly 10lbs, and Henry close to 9lbs. We’re so grateful to God for this precious gift. She is already so loved. Her big brothers adore her!

Ivy being born at home wasn’t totally surprising, as the Duggars are often advocates of natural birth plans. However, in a new video from TLC, Jessa revealed that a home birth wasn’t the plan for this pregnancy.

“Our birth plan through this whole pregnancy was that we would deliver at a birthing suite at the hospital with a midwife there,” Jessa said. “However, the morning that my water broke was the morning that my midwife had left town for a week.”

It struck me as odd that Jessa’s midwife was out of town, but she said she was anticipating a late delivery.

“I was not expecting to go early,” the Counting On star said. “We thought we had two weeks left.”

Jessa ended up giving birth on the family couch, after an on-call midwife was there to help deliver the baby. The midwife put a plastic pad on the couch, similar to what you use to potty train a puppy. To get her contractions going, Jessa drank a castor oil smoothie while walking up and down the stairs. Clearly it worked, and little Ivy was born at home.


The name Ivy Jane is a touch more modern than the Duggars usually go for, but Jess and Ben said it was a no-brainer for them.

“Ivy Jane, we just liked those two names,” Ben said. “Jessa and I talked about it beforehand this time around and we actually had a name picked out before she was born. We liked the way those names flowed together.”

“And with her middle name, Jane, she’s actually named after Lady Jane Grey, who was a young lady who was Queen of England for a short time during the 1500s. She was a very inspirational character to us,” the father of three added.

Jessa is excited to have a little girl at home, after already having two sons.

“Bows, pink, ruffles, lace. Those are some of the things that are just really exciting about having a girl.”

So how are Spurgeon and Henry handling a new sister?

“Spurgeon especially knew what was going on a little bit more I think because we’d been talking to him and he’s a little older. He kind of gets it, so he held Ivy for several minutes. And Henry, he just kept saying, ‘baby,’ ” said Ben. “It’ll be fun to watch them interact. We’re going to have to teach them to be more gentle, though, because they’re pretty rough.”

It’s wild to think that Jessa’s plans changed so drastically, but she seemed to handle it smoothly!

Has your birthing plan every gone awry?

Beth Chapman’s Condition Just Got Drastically Worse

Duane “Dog” Chapman is asking for prayers for his wife after a serious turn in her health. Beth Chapman, who is suffering from stage II throat cancer, has been battling to stay healthy since her diagnosis in 2017. Sadly, her condition just got drastically worse, and now the family is left waiting for answers.

Instagram – Duane Chapman

In a statement made to Hawaii News Now, the Chapmans revealed that Beth is in a medically-induced coma in the ICU at Queen’s Medical Center in Honolulu. The family “humbly ask everyone to please pray for Beth,” and offer their “sincere thanks to everyone for their prayers throughout Beth’s battle with cancer.”

Dog confirmed the news on his Facebook page, sharing the article, and tweeted out a message after the news broke.

“Please say your prayers for Beth right now thank you love you,” Dog wrote.

Instagram – Duane Chapman

Just hours before she was put into the coma, Beth had tweeted about her husband, jokingly saying “And that’s the fourth time this week he’s mowed the lawn What do you think ? Does the man have something on his mind or he just forgot how many times he’s mowed the lawn #AskingForAFriend

Many people responded saying it was Dog’s way of coping, and that he didn’t want people to see him so upset so he mowed the lawn to distract himself from Beth’s illness.

Instagram – Beth Chapman

Beth’s cancer diagnosis was a shock to everyone, and two months after she announced she was battling the disease, the family revealed that her cancer had been completely removed. Sadly, the cancer returned a year later and required emergency surgery to clear her airways of a blockage. She was also hospitalized in April due to complications.

Instagram – Beth Chapman

Though it would be easy for Beth to blame the universe and God for her illness, she told churchgoers on Mother’s Day that it was God’s way of testing her.

“I don’t go to God and go, ‘Why did I get cancer?’ ” she said. “He’ll roll his eyes at me again, because I know why — because this is the ultimate test of faith. It is the evidence of things hoped for and it is the substance of things not known.”

Instagram – Beth Chapman

Beth also appeared to admit she’s stopped her chemotherapy, although she had started treatment in January of this year.

“Chemotherapy is not my bag, people. Sorry, that’s not for me,” she said. “So for me, this is the ultimate test of faith. This is my ultimate lesson. And it will either be taught to me or to you. And I am fine with taking the hit for everyone else. Because I think I know another guy who did the same thing.”

Instagram – Duane Chapman

Dog has spoken about the toll his wife’s illness has taken on him, saying he’s trying to make deals with God to heal his wife.

“I don’t listen to the bad news. I don’t want to hear it. … I pray a lot, anywhere. I cry all the time,” he shared. “I’m a sinner. I pray a lot. I have done double that. I constantly ask God to heal my honey and make sure He takes care of it. I’ve been telling Him that I’m going to try and quit smoking and cursing. I’m a dealmaker, and I’ll do anything.”

Instagram – Duane Chapman

I hope that this coma can begin a healing process for Beth, and that her family gets the answers they are looking for.

Our prayers are with the Chapman family.

Kylie Jenner Says She Was “Scared” Of Jordyn Woods After Cheating Scandal

Though she’s been pretty hush-hush about the Jordyn Woods/Tristan Thompson scandal that broke up her sister’s relationship, we finally know how Kylie Jenner felt after it all went down.

Instagram – Jordyn Woods

On the most recent episode of Keeping Up With The Kardashians, Kylie spoke with her sisters, Khloé and Kim Kardashian about the scandal that rocked the Kardashian family. Well…one of the scandals.

E! just released a clip of the upcoming episode, where the three sisters discuss what went down, and how no one could actually believe it was happening.

“Tristan, we’ve all known what he was capable of,” Khloé said. “Look what he did when I was nine months pregnant. But I knew who he was. I never in a million years thought that’s who she was.”

Khloé is referring to the cheating scandal that broke just days before she gave birth to hers and Tristan’s daughter True. Tristan was caught cheating on Khloé with a girl inside a nightclub.

“No one believed it. When it was online, no one believed it,” Kim said of the news that Jordyn had made out with Tristan at a house party he threw.

“Everyone thought it was fake,” Khloé agreed.

That’s when Kylie chimed in with her take on the matter.

“I called her and she didn’t really say anything. She was just like crying the whole time. And I was just telling her, like, ‘I’m scared of you now. That you’re capable of waking up the next morning with a smile on your face,'” she said. “And then I pretty much told her exactly what we’ve been talking about, like, ‘You weren’t thinking about True, not Khloé, not me, but you weren’t even thinking about yourself. Look what you did. You can do whatever, but when it effects my family, me, that’s when it’s a problem.”

Kim also added that it was weird that Jordyn didn’t apologize to Khloé more for what happened.

“But I also think the tone of not ever saying sorry. Like I would have been on Khloé’s doorstep, bawling my eyes out, being like ‘F*ck, I don’t know what the f*ck I was doing. Holy sh*t, I’m a f*cking idiot,'” Kim said.

Jordyn has only really spoken of the scandal once, when she appeared on Jada Pinkett-Smith’s show saying that she wasn’t the reason Khloé and Tristan weren’t together anymore.

“I know I am not the reason that Tristan and Khloe are not together,” she said strongly. “Now I know this situation may have made it harder for her to not be with him…but I know I am not the reason.”

Facebook – Red Table Talk

Khloé called Jordyn out for her comments, saying she was a liar.

“Why are you lying [Jordyn],” Khloé tweeted. “If you’re going to try and save yourself by going public, INSTEAD OF CALLING ME PRIVATELY TO APOLOGIZE FIRST, at least be HONEST about your story. [By the way], you ARE the reason my family broke up!”

The 34 year old also acknowledged that Tristan was at fault as well.

“Tristan is equally to blame but Tristan is the father of my child,” she tweeted. “Regardless of what he does to me I won’t do that to my daughter. He has been addressing this situation PRIVATELY. If Tristan were to lie publicly about what conspired, then yes I would address him publicly as well.”

Instagram – Khloe Kardashian

The reality star later back tracked on her comments, acknowledging that she was heated in the moment and shouldn’t have been so accusatory. She even admitted that Jordyn was right – it’s not her fault for the downfall of her relationship.

“This has been an awful week & I know everyone is sick of hearing about it all (as am I),” she tweeted. “I’m a rollercoaster of emotions & have said things I shouldn’t have. Honestly, Tristan cheating on me & humiliating me, wasn’t such a shock as the first time. What’s been harder & more painful is being hurt by someone so close to me. Someone whom I love & treat like a little sister. But Jordyn is not to be blamed for the breakup of my family. This was Tristan’s fault. I have to move on with my life & count my blessings, my family, my health, & my beautiful baby True.”

Instagram – Khloe Kardashian

Kylie has completely cut Jordyn out of her life since the scandal. Jordyn was living in Kylie’s guest house before everything went down, but Kylie told her best friend to leave after the cheating was uncovered.

Kylie already tries to be so careful about who she brings into her life, so I’m sure this situation wasn’t easy for her to cope with as she said goodbye to her best friend.

Instagram – Khloe Kardashian

Do you think Jordyn is to blame for all of this?
