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?

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.

ABC

“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.”

ABC

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.

ABC

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.

ABC

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.'”

ABC

“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.”

ABC

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?’”

ABC

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.”

ABC

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

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?

“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.

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.

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.

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

“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

Instagram – Jordyn Woods

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.”

[H/T: People]

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

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.

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

She Thought It Was A Pimple, Now She’s Battling Cancer

Everyone gets pimples now and then. It’s just a part of life. Generally they go away on their own, but sometimes they can be a little more finicky. For 21-year-old New Zealand teacher Emily Foreman, what she thought was a run-of-the-mill pimple ended up changing the course of her life forever.

After a few months of the pesky pimple-like bump behind her ear, Foreman went to the doctor to get it looked at. A series of scans gave her the tragic diagnosis of a cancer tumor, called a large cell undifferentiated carcinoma, in her main salivary gland. It had also spread to some of Foreman’s surrounding lymphnodes. The young woman underwent a six-hour surgery to try and remove the cancer.

“This was to remove the entirety of my parotid gland, as well as most of the lymph nodes and some of the surrounding tissue in my neck,” Foreman explained on her Give A Little donation page, which is similar to GoFundMe. “To ensure that they had removed all of the cancer they needed to take some of my main facial nerve, unfortunately this left the right side of my face paralysed.”

Foreman then underwent six weeks of radiation, and after a while she was finally able to get back to her regular life. She was working full time and trying to plan out her future, but a routine check up left her devastated once again.

“In the CT scan they had discovered multiple lesions across both my lungs; meaning the cancer had spread,” she recalled. “There was always that chance of the cancer coming back, but never in a million years did I expect this, or for it to happen so soon. This changed everything. I was then put under one of the best oncologist’s and we were thrown straight into coming up with our next plan of attack. Because the lesions were so small and spread across both my lungs surgery wasn’t an option, we were also unable to do radiation as this would damage my lungs too much.”

So what was her next option? Foreman’s doctor decided the best course of action was to monitor the lesions to see if there were any changes. If they began to change, then she would have to undergo chemotherapy. The lesions didn’t appear to be changing, which meant that Foreman’s immune system was fighting hard to keep the cancer at bay.

“After much consideration, [the doctor] decided to offer me immunotherapy, believing that this would have better results than the chemotherapy would,” Foreman shared. “Immunotherapy works in conjunction with and helps to support the immune system to find and target cancer cells. But for me to be able to have this immunotherapy and for it to work I needed to have a high enough level of a certain protein within my cancer cells. After some testing we were fortunate and so grateful to find out that this is going to be an option for me and probably my best option.”

The issue, though, is that this treatment is extremely expensive and not covered under New Zealand healthcare.

“Each treatment is done every three weeks down in Palmerston North at a cost of $6,000 and it is capped at 10 treatments,” wrote on her Give A Little page. “This means that we only have to pay for the first 10 treatments; that still leaves it costing around $60,000. Then every treatment after the 10th one we only have to pay the administration fee which is still around $700 every time. All in all this is going to be a rather costly experience.”

This treatment could last for years if it’s deemed effective, which means Foreman will be struggling with these costs for the foreseeable future. However, she notes that this isn’t a cure by any stretch.

“Now the immunotherapy is not a cure, and will not cure me; currently there is no cure,” Foreman pointed out. “But it should be able to prevent the lesions from growing and keep them at bay for as long as possible. Medicine is changing all the time and I am hopeful that one day there will be a cure but currently this is my best chance at keeping the cancer at bay until that cure is found.”

I can’t imagine thinking something is just a pimple, then receiving life-changing news like this. Foreman seems to have a good head on her shoulders, and she has already raised over $50,000 on her fundraising page.

Her story is an important reminder to be vigilant when it comes to growths, bumps, or anything else unusual you notice about your body.

Mom Left “Broken” After Picking Up “Lifeless” Daughter From Daycare

A mom in Ohio is looking for justice after her two-month-old baby died in the home of her daycare provider. Taylor Bush dropped off her daughter, Di’Yanni Griffin, at Nana’s Home Daycare along with her sons. When Bush texted the daycare owner, Danielle Townsend, to say she was coming to pick up her kids, Townsend said she wasn’t at the daycare, but her sister was there watching the kids.

When Bush showed up, the sister answered the door and was holding Di’Yanni.

“I knock on the door, go in there — she told me my baby was breathing heavy,” Bush said. “I say, ‘Why didn’t you call?’ She had no answer.”

Bush lives in the unit above the daycare, so she took DiYanni and went upstairs, only to realize something awful.

“So I go to walk out the door and I close the door behind me so I’m like, ‘Hey, mama baby.’ I realize her neck is, just she’s just lifeless,” Bush told Fox 8.

Bush then went back to the daycare, where she tried to save her daughter.

“So, I’m like, ‘Can you help with CPR?’ She’s not helping. So, I immediately put my daughter on the ground, so I give her CPR, and while I’m doing that, I call 911,” said Bush.

While doing CPR, Bush recalled that the sister kept trying to call Townsend instead of helping dave Di’Yanni.

“Why aren’t you trying to call police?” Bush thought at the time.

Di’Yanni was rushed to the hospital, but it was too late to do anything for her.

“They could not find a pulse for my daughter at all. I begged them — the hospital — to keep working on her because they had already pronounced her dead,” Bush said. “I begged them to keep working on my baby, because I couldn’t cope with the words, ‘She was gone.'”

It was then that Bush was given the news that made her heart sink.

“They told me about how cold my daughter was that she had stopped breathing a long time ago,” she said.

As for Townsend, who has been working with kids for 15 years, she said that her sister did notice something was wrong before Bush picked up Di’Yanni.

“My sister calls me and says, ‘Call her mother,'” recalled Townsend. “I said, ‘Well, her mother just texted me; what’s wrong?’ She said, ‘The baby is breathing fast.”

When Bush went to pick up her sons after leaving the hospital, she was upset with the way the daycare handled the situation.

“They showed no remorse, no apologies, not anything, no ‘sorry for your loss,’ no condolences,” she said.

Representatives from the daycare began posting on social media that Di’Yanni was ill, but police have said the coroner thinks the baby died of natural causes. The Ohio Department of Job and Family Services said they are monitoring the situation and will determine of the daycare license should be suspended.

“ODJFS is monitoring this tragic situation very closely. County JFS agencies are responsible for inspections of in-home child care, with oversight of ODJFS,” the spokesperson said. “The county agency is conducting an investigation and actively working with child protective services and law enforcement. ODJFS would make the final determination on whether to suspend Nana’s Home Daycare license if the county agency recommends suspension.”

As for Bush, she’s now left heartbroken after the death of her daughter. She said she had prayed to one day have a little girl, and now that dream is broken.

“I’m hurt. I blame myself,” the grieving mother said. “I don’t know how to cope, honestly I don’t. I’ve never dealt with anything like this before … I’m just broken, I’m broken.”

I can’t even imagine what Bush is going through right now. I hope she is able to get answers for the death of her baby girl.

Do you think the daycare should be shut down?

Mindy Kaling Finally Opens Up About Daughter’s Top-Secret Paternity

When Mindy Kaling got pregnant, everyone was thrilled for her. The former The Office star and writer is such a hard worker and admirable person, so the thought of her passing along these traits to a child was just amazing. Of course, there was one major question: who was the father of her baby?

There was a strong possibility that the father was her long-time best friend, and former boyfriend B.J. Novak, as the two have been so close for so many years. It then came out that Novak was actually the godfather of Kaling’s daughter, Katherine, and our collective heart broke at the chance of him being the actual father. Kaling actually acknowledged the rumors about her and Novak sharing the baby, and admitted that she understands why people think that.

“If I was on the outside looking at it, I would think the same thing. But the truth is that B.J. is so much more like family now than a platonic friend,” Kaling explained. “He’s the godfather to my daughter; he comes over like once a week. Sometimes he’ll come over just to hang out with her. In the When Harry Met Sally version of platonic friends, I too think that’s strange. But when you’ve known someone for as long as I’ve known him — the time that we met each other, which was like 24. Now, we’re both almost 40.”

Some people thought the paternity of little Katherine would come out eventually, but shockingly it’s been kept under lock and key so far. Kaling gave an interview with The New York Times, and explained why keeping the identity of her daughter’s father quiet is so important to her.

“My feeling is that until I speak to my daughter about that, I’m not going to talk to anyone else about it,” she put quite frankly.

It’s a very admirable way of looking at things. Imagine having everyone else in the world know something so personal about your life before you did? Kaling has been very careful to not show pictures of Katherine’s face, only ever showing her from behind on social media.

Kaling also opened up about how surprised she is that motherhood is enjoyable to her, considering how much she loves her work, too.

“Right now I’m surprised at how much I enjoy being a mom. I did not think I had a big maternal instinct,” she admitted. “I’m very impatient, and having a baby requires an amount of patience that I was worried about. But they don’t tell you that the thing will look so much like you, and do things that are so sweet and adorable, that you’ll naturally not have the same impatience that you would have with a stranger or someone who works for you.”

Seeing Kaling balance work and motherhood is very inspiring. She’s paving the way in the entertainment industry, and she’s doing so while being a full-time single mom.

What do you think of Kaling keeping her daughter’s father a secret?

Kelly Ripa’s Daughter Claims She “Ruined Her Life” After Hilarious Birthday Gaff

Kids say they hate their parents all the time. It’s just part of parenthood. For Kelly Ripa and Mark Consuelos, their 18-year-old daughter Lola has constantly told them they’re embarrassing, and has also limited their use of her picture on their social media pages. Ripa has often talked about how Lola has to approve any pictures of her that get posted, which is totally fair.

Of course, the love between a parent and child always comes first, but for the Ripa-Consuelos family, they may have some repairing to do after Lola saw…well, let’s just say she saw the love between a parent and a parent.

Instagram – Kelly Ripa

Ripa and Consuelos told the hilarious story on Live! With Kelly and Ryan as Consuelos was a guest host. It was Lola’s 18th birthday, and the couple shared an unfortunate encounter they had with their daughter.

“We started her day off pretty bad yesterday,” Consuelos started. “She knocked on our door. Well, we thought she knocked on our door…”

“What do you mean you THOUGHT she knocked on our door?” Ripa quipped. “How do you…? Did you…? Are you telling me now that you heard a knock?”

“No no no, I’m just saying that she knocked on our door, on our bedroom door…” Consuelos hinted.

“Timeout!” Ripa exclaimed. “No she didn’t!”

“Well she opened the door, is what happened,” Consuelos said. “She opened the door and it was late morning…and it was Father’s Day.”

Both Ripa and Consuelos looked at the audience with clear defeat and embarrassment in their eyes.

“I’m going to be honest: I was not in the mood,” she said. “There was a house full of people.”

“I could tell,” the Riverdale actor said. “You were going through the motions. You were definitely going through the motions.”

“I’m sorry!” Ripa interrupted. “My in-laws were waiting to eat. My in-laws were in the kitchen, I know they were hungry, I had a house full of people. Any time there are other people in the house I’m not really…relaxed. You know, and he was like ‘but it’s Father’s Day!’ and I was like, alright well that typically doesn’t conjure up amorous thoughts but okay.”

“So [Lola] opens the door and we see the door open, and we’re like ‘AH! CLOSE THE DOOR! WHAT ARE YOU DOING?’ and she goes ‘Thanks a lot! It’s my birthday!” Consuelos recalled.

“She shuts the door and you hear, ‘You just ruined my birthday! And my life! And I used to see in color and now everything is gray!'” Ripa continued.

“That’s verbatim what she said,” Consuelos confirmed. “And now we’re having Father’s Day brunch, and we’re sitting there with my father, my sister, and the kids and Lola and she’s sitting there looking at us.”

“We’re sitting there eating and she looks at us and says ‘You’re disgusting. You guys have no chill! You act like you’re 20, but you’re not,'” Ripa said. “And now, I’m still trying to talk in code because my father-in-law is at the table and I go, ‘with respect, we weren’t in the kitchen!'”

“I’m not sure she saw anything,” Consuelos said.

“I made eye contact with her!” Ripa chimed in.

“So but then now at the brunch, the other kids, now they all start sharing stories of when they’ve walked in…does nobody knock in this house?” Consuelos asked.

“Nobody knocks!” Ripa agreed. “Nobody knocks in our house. And Lola’s like ‘I knocked! You can’t hear me because you’re deaf from exercise class!’ Which may or may not be true.”

“So last night [Lola] came back into our room to say goodnight,” Consuelos shared. “The door is closed, we were watching TV, and she comes in and [knocks really loud] and I’m like ‘Hello?'”

“It was like a fire department knock,” Ripa added. “It was like BOOM BOOM BOOM!”

“Oh, poor Lola,” Consuelos said.

Even though Ripa and Consuelos are famous, they’re not exempt from being “uncool” parents. I’m not sure every other kid has had to have their awkward encounters shared on live, national television!

Gym Facing Serious Backlash After “Horrifying” Promotional Email

Sometimes I wonder how certain companies get things passed through their marketing department. At what point does someone step in and say “no, this is a bad idea.” I’m sure a lot of people are wondering the same thing after a local Anytime Fitness sent out an email that one gym-goer said she was “horrified” to receive.

Mora Reinka posted the email she received from the gym on Twitter, saying “I…am horrified by this promotional email from @AnytimeFitness. I just don’t even know where to begin.”

This is what the email said.

MORA

I need you to do me a favor.

Think about the warm days of summer ahead.

Warm summer night breezes. Lake or beach time.

Seeing family (the ones you like). Spending more time with the kiddos (also the ones you like).

Listening to music.

Shorts, bathing suits, flip flops. The smell of suntan lotion.

And LOTS of pictures of you that will be posted online forever.

LOTS of suck in, side turns, skinny arm posts, and god forbid, a side pic while sitting down.

Do me a second favor.

Take you hand, and grab the excess you have on your waist (front/back/sides).

Can you pinch it? Or can you rab it?

Well, I want to call it what it is…FAT.

Apparently nowadays I gotta be politically correct. Maybe I should say “adipose tissue.”

The email was a bit of a shock. For a gym to call out people for being fat isn’t a great look. How would someone feel if they were overweight and walking into the gym, knowing that right away people are judging them?

The post went viral on Twitter, and it even caught the attention of the Anytime Fitness National Media Director and CEO.

This was the response from Mark Daly, the National Media Director.

Hello Mora –

A Tweet from you regarding a promotional message you may have received from an Anytime Fitness gym has been brought to my attention. The message is very concerning and completely contrary to how we coach the franchisee owners of Anytime Fitness gyms to communicate with others.

We take great pride in being supportive and encouraging – never shaming. Can you help me identify who sent you that message? Was it sent via email? Do you know the location of the gym? Any help that you can provide would be appreciated – so that we can take immediate action.

Daly also wrote to Reinka on Twitter after speaking with the franchisee.

“Mora – I just spoke with the franchisee owner of the gym and expressed our disappointment,” he said. “He apologized from his ill-advised attempt at humor and promised not to send similar messages to others. We will be re-training him to be supportive and encouraging. On behalf of everyone at Anytime Fitness, please accept our apologies.”

Chuck Runyon, CEO, also commented on Twitter.

“[You’re] right […] & please accept our apology @MoraReinka this was a bad decision by a franchise owner and does not represent the values of Anytime Fitness,” he wrote.

The official Twitter account also addressed the Tweet publicly.

“This is not a message we support or encourage,” they said. “In fact, this language is the exact opposite of how we coach our franchisees to communicate. We pride ourselves on being supportive and encouraging – never shaming. We are actively addressing this matter & we are deeply sorry.”

It’s crazy to me that in 2019, someone would still think this was an okay letter to send out. Even if you think it’s a joke, you should know the political climate is to sensitive to be mocking a person’s weight.

Do you think this email went too far?

Rob Kardashian’s Ex Slams Him After “Hypocritical” Disagreement

Rob Kardashian and Blac Chyna had a whirlwind romance, which included an engagement and a child, but ultimately it fell apart. Kardashian and Chyna share 2-year-old daughter, Dream Kardashian, and up until now things have been okay. Yes, the reality TV duo has had their ups and downs, but recently they’ve been open and vocal about how they’re getting along for the sake of their daughter.

“I just feel like having a good relationship with the other parent and co-parenting is a healthy type of thing,” Chyna told Entertainment Tonight. “It’s something that a lot of people need to practice.”

They also shared a Twitter exchange, clearing up rumors about custody battles.

“Angela [Blac Chyna] and I are both actively co-parenting and there are no pending or active custody cases,” Kardashian wrote.

Chyna responded: “Robert and I [sic] only concern is what’s in the best interest of our daughter that we both equally love. Additionally, Robert is a wonderful father to our Dreamy!”

However, things don’t seem to be as peachy now, as Kardashian has tried to put a kibosh Dream appearing on Chyna’s new reality TV show. Kardashian’s lawyer sent a letter to Chyna, saying that Dream was not to appear on her show. In the letter obtained by TMZ, it’s clear they are not playing around.

To Whom It May Concern:

We are litigation counsel to Robert Kardashian. I am writing with respect to the upcoming show “The Real Blac Chyna” starring Angela White (the “Series”), which is slated to premiere on The Zeus Network this summer.

Mr. Kardashian and Ms. White share joint custody of their daughter, Dream Kardashian. On or around Friday, June 7, 2019, Ms. White sent out client the attached document, which appears to be a draft Appearance Release for Dream to appear on the Series. My client does not agree that his daughter Dream Kardashian appear in the Series.

Please be advised that The Zeus Network does not have Mr. Kardashian’s consent to Dream’s participation in or appearance on the Series or in any related marketing or promotional materials. Should The Zeus Network proceed with releasing any episodes of the Series or related materials containing Dream’s likeness, it will be acting at its own peril and exposing itself to significant liability.

It’s pretty harsh coming from a man whose family built their entire empire off being on TV, although to be fair Rob hasn’t appeared on the show nearly as much recently. Chyna didn’t miss the hypocrisy either, and released a statement on Rob’s disagreement of Dream’s participation in her show.

As Executive Producer of my show, It is very unfortunate that Rob could not simply have an adult conversation with me ‘the mother of his child,’ Dream Kardashian appearing on my show ‘The Real Blac Chyna.’

Had Rob contacted me directly rather than through his attorney Marty Singer, Rob would have learned about Dream participation in the show.

First and foremost, I would never allow [our] two-year-old daughter to be subjected to ‘long hours’ on the set.

The very real and intense drama that happened between my mother and I, during the filming of ‘The Real Blac Chyna’ took place outside of the presence of my daughter.

I would never allow my daughter to be present as me and my mom tried to work through our many issues to reach peace in our relationship.

Again, had Rob contacted me directly, he would have learned that as the Executive Producer of my show ‘The Real Blac Chyna,’ I have the ability to control which scenes are included in the show.

However, I also would have pointed out to Rob the hypocrisy of his family’s insistence that Dream appear on ‘Keeping Up with the Kardashians’ in the family’s desperate attempt to boost the dismal ratings for their stale and contrived show, without my approval, including an entire scene being Dream’s birthday party, again without my consent.

My show is about my life and my kids are a huge part of my life. It’s really sad that everything I do to better myself or my family the same people have something to say to stop or hinder it.

Chyna, who also shared 6-year-old son King Cairo with rapper Tyga, wasn’t holding back at all. She’s clearly adamant that her daughter be a part of this television show, though it’s not clear if she’s taken any legal action against Kardashian.

Personally, I don’t think she should be on either show until she’s old enough to make that decision on her own.

What do you think?
