Lil Duval is doubling down on saying a transgender woman would be “dying” if he found out she’d deceived him — but he also insists he has no problem with gay or transgender people. The comedian was on “TMZ Live” Monday to address the protests…
Didn’t take long for a grand jury to decide Gareon Conley’s fate — the Oakland Raiders rookie will NOT be charged with rape stemming from an April incident, officials say. The 1st round draft pick was accused of raping a woman at an Ohio…
Even if you’ve been following The Bachelorette Spoilers and have known for ages which suitor becomes Rachel Lindsay’s fiance, there are still some details that have yet to be revealed.
One of them pertains to exactly how that final decision goes down.
According to this new report, it’s a decision that didn’t come easily … and the final breakup is apparently “brutal.”
Okay, so the world watched as Rachel Lindsay introduced her final three suitors to her family.
The last episode ended with a cliffhanger — and one-on-one dates in Spain — but even with some extra time, Rachel Lindsay remained torn towards the end.
Apparently, of all of the decisions that Rachel has had to make this season, the final one was the hardest.
(Leaving some of us wondering where all of this hesitation was when she said goodbye to precious blue-eyed Dean Unglert)
According to Us Weekly‘s source, Rachel Lindsay’s final breakup is brutal.
“When it gets down to the finale and the final two guys, the last breakup is the most heart-wrenching of all time”
That already sounds like it’ll be a lot.
But there’s more:
“They couldn’t say goodbye, and even when they did there were so many tears from her. After she left, he collapsed and sobbed.”
That’s such a sad image.
But it wasn’t just hard on the suitor.
“She was torn until the very end.”
Most of the time, you don’t think of these decisions as being last-minute or impulsive.
It sounds like Rachel is really following her heart.
Rachel Lindsay said she wanted to quit The Bachelorette at times because her choice was so hard, and we’re definitely getting a sense of that.
It won’t be easy on the viewer, either:
“It’s brutal to watch this breakup — worst breakup in years on this show.”
Describing it as “brutal” gives us an image of, like, a gladiatorial arena — which sounds like a setting for a dating show that’s probably been pitched to at least one network over the years.
(Imagine if suitors literally fought each other on The Bachelorette … oh wait, that sounds like the premise to an episode of Black Mirror)
But saying that it’s the worst breakup in years on the show … that’s a tall order.
Remember, more than love or romance or anything else, The Bachelorette is about breakups.
Because there are way more breakups on The Bachelorette than there are actual couples.
(Though at least some people forge lasting friendships)
Just a reminder that the finalists are:
Peter Kraus, a handsome guy from Wisconsin who should absolutely be Rachel Lindsay’s pick.
Bryan Abasolo, a smooth-talking chiropractor who seems to say whatever Rachel wants to hear.
Eric Bigger, a personal trainer who really doesn’t seem to raise that much positive or negative interest.
Seriously, Peter Kraus and Bryan Abasolo may be polarizing individuals, but fans seem to have basically forgotten that Eric exists.
Maybe he’ll make a name for himself as a suitor in a future season.
Dean Unglert is a favorite to be The Bachelor, but anyone who made it to the end could have a future within the Bachelor Nation.
We may already know who Rachel picks, but it’ll be interesting to see how it all goes down.
(But, based on this, we should all have some tissues handy)
Teen Mom 2 star Kailyn Lowry is soon to be a mom for the third time … though it’s starting to feel like she’s been pregnant for an eternity.
We’re just talking about from our perspective. Imagine hers!
After fending off pregnancy rumors for months, then enduring speculation about said pregnancy for many more months, it’s just about over.
Not a moment too soon for the 25-year-old, either.
“I’m convinced I’m never having the baby and it’s all a dream,” the oft-maligned and embattled MTV personality tweeted on Sunday.
“I feel no progress here lol.”
This really has been dragging on for awhile. Any expectant mom in month nine can relate, but Kailyn has been scrutinized the whole time.
She first confirmed she is expecting in February (this played out on Teen Mom 2 last week), but didn’t reveal the identity of the father.
“This is the baby I thought I wasn’t sure if I could have. I know this isn’t an ideal situation but I know everything will be okay,” she wrote.
“And like I say in my book,” she said, working in a quality plug, “with a little bit of hustle and heart, I can and I will survive anything.”
“Having another child is something I am so happy about and I just can’t wait. My boys are so excited, those who love me are so excited.”
“I hope that everyone can just be happy for me.”
That definitely wasn’t the case. Kail enjoys plenty of fan support, but also plenty of haters critical of Lowry for having three baby daddies.
As for the identity of the third baby daddy, she finally confirmed in May that the father of her child is Chris Lopez, as the Internet established.
Lowry opened up to her ex-boyfriend (and first baby daddy) Jo Rivera on Teen Mom 2 about her decision to go through this again on MTV.
“I really don’t want to talk about it, but I also feel like I’m seeing all the s–t Jenelle [Evans] has gone through,” Lowry lamented to Rivera.
“Having three kids with three people … it’s going to get out anyway, so I might as well tell my story and be transparent about it.”
That way, Kailyn surmised in a scene from the hit show, “the truth is out there and not like a bunch of rumors or assumptions.”
If only it were that simple.
The scrutiny over every detail has only intensified, from her relationship status with Lopez and Javi Marroquin to the new baby’s gender.
It certainly looks like Lowry is having a girl, at least according to a Snapchat video in which a friend held a chain over her baby belly.
According to this odd but enjoyable tradition, if the pendulum swings in circles, then it’s a girl, and if it swings back and forth, it’s a boy.
We saw circles, people. Oh yes. Big time.
As for what she’s going to name it she’s down to four options for each gender: If it’s a girl, she’ll pick Karsyn, Anastasia, Murphy or Leona.
A third boy will be named Griffin, Nixon, Ripken or Silas. As of this weekend, it was still TBA. “Still. No. Baby. Names. Goodbye,” she wrote.
Kail is already mother to son Isaac Elliot, 7, whom she shares with Rivera, and son Lincoln Marshall, 3, with ex-husband Javi Marroquin.
Both of those guys have had their moments they’d just as soon forget over the years, but are devoted fathers and decent guys all-around.
Lopez? That remains to be seen.
Don’t book the wedding venue just yet … Chandler Parsons says he and UFC Octagon babe, Arianny Celeste, are “just hangin’ out” — at least, for now. The two were spotted out together earlier this month — they had dinner…
Hey, remember when we told you that Whitney Port was pregnant?
Well, pregnancy doesn’t last forever — even if it sometimes feels like it does — and she gave birth!
She shared photos and talked all about her adorable little baby. And yes, the former The Hills star tells us his name right away instead of being weirdly coy about baby names.
Whitney Port posted to Instagram before she shared any photos:
“Sorry I’ve been MIA for like a week! I lost my phone. Just kidding!! I made a human!”
Okay, that is a really cute introduction.
“Sonny Sanford Rosenman was born on 7/27/17!!”
Some superstitions make seven lucky number, so three of them in a row is pretty great.
(Also, 27 is three cubed or nine times three, which makes it a very pleasing number even if we don’t attribute any special properties to it)
“Everyone is so happy and healthy and we are home now. I’m going to try my very best to not be one of those moms whose feed is dominated by their baby but I can totally see how difficult it will be not to.”
She’s enamored with her baby and conscientious! How sweet of her.
(But seriously, share baby pics all that you like)
“I am beyond obsessed and in love and wish I could bottle this feeling for all of you out there.”
That feeling is a huge rush of oxytocin, and it’s pretty great.
(Technically, they do bottle it already, but not with especially reliable effects and we don’t know if it’s used recreationally — maybe some day!)
“Check out the blog (link in bio) for more and welcome our little one to the world!!”
It wasn’t until her blog post that she shared photos that we have for you — doesn’t she look amazing for just having given birth? Dang.
Good for you, Whitney.
(Sure, she probably put on makeup or whatever, but let’s give credit where credit is due, folks)
She also writes about how obsessed with him she is:
“I love him and feel protective over him, but more than anything, I’m just like obsessed. I can’t stop looking at him, or thinking about him when I am in another room.”
If more parents felt that way, maybe there’d be fewer babies who die in a hot car every year.
“It’s a bit like getting a toy you really really wanted as a child. There was all the anticipation and build up, and then you open it and you love it.”
If your first thought was that even shiny, new toys can lose their luster, she already thought of that creation.
“Unlike the toy, however, I am obviously never going to get sick of Sonny, and he poops.”
We bet that the defecation part is going to get old soon, though.
“All kidding aside, my heart just grew to accommodate all this extra love I now have to give. I don’t care if this is sappy or trite and I don’t want to say that I love him more than anything ever because I love Timmy and my family. It’s not about loving him more than something else I love. It’s just awesome.”
That’s precious. And we get it.
And don’t worry, she has a picture of little baby Sonny.
He looks like perhaps the most thoroughly swaddled baby that we’ve ever seen in our lives.
He’s also really cute.
We look forward to more photos.
It’s no surprise that she’s sharing photos now that the baby’s born.
Whitney Port’s been perfectly comfortable giving people a look at her life.
For that matter, the photo announcing her pregnancy was one of the most revealing that we’d ever seen.
Hey, if you’re gorgeous, don’t be afraid to show off.
(Don’t be afraid to show off regardless, actually)
It’s not often that we get blasts from the past with The Hills stars living their lives a decade later, but good for you, Whitney.
Liam Hemsworth and Rebel Wilson’s makeout sesh got sloppy … even in a tux and gown. Liam and Rebel were on the set of “Isn’t it Romantic” in NYC … making out for a scene under drenching rain and a green screen as their backdrop. It’s unclear…
Chester Bennington was laid to rest on Saturday in Rancho Paolo Verdes, California.
According to TMZ, over 200 friends, family members and loved ones turned out to pay tribute one final time to the late Linkin Park singer, who killed himself at the age of 41 this month.
The artist’s body was found hanging in his home by a housekeeper on July 20, prior to another employee dialing 911 to alert the authorities.
There was nothing paramedics could do when they arrived on the scene, however.
All guests at the funeral this weekend were given a yellow wristband and a pass with Bennington’s photograph on it, the sort of admission item VIP fans would receive at a concert.
Austin Carlile – the ex-lead singer of the group Of Mice and Men – shared a picture of the token on Instagram.
As you can see below, the back of the guest pass featured an image of Bennington singing into a crowd that’s illuminated by the light from the cell phones of concert attendees:
“The service today was beautiful. Thank you Linkin Park, thank you Chester. For everything,” Carlile wrote as a caption to the image.
On July 24, the Los Angeles County Coroner’s Office confirmed that Bennington died of suicide by hanging.
Since then, words of mourning and remembrance have been shared online by countless individuals in the music business.
Late last week, the singer’s grief-stricken widow released her first public statement since Bennington’s passing.
“One week ago, I lost my soulmate and my children lost their hero – their Daddy,” Talinda Bennington wrote, adding:
“How do I move on? How do I pick up my shattered soul? The only answer I know is to raise our babies with every ounce of love I have left.”
She concluded as follows:
“He was a bright, loving soul with an angel’s voice.
“And now he is pain-free singing his songs in all of our hearts. May God bless us all and help us turn to one another when we are in pain. Chester would’ve wanted us to do so.
“Rest In Peace, my love.”
Bennington joined the Linkin Park in 1999 and the band went on to win two Grammy Awards, while selling over 70 million albums.
In a series of Tweets on Saturday, bass player Dave Phoenix Farrell said goodbye to his close friend.
“It goes without saying, this last week has been extremely difficult,” he wrote.
“The outpouring of love and kindness I’ve received from friends and Fans from all over the world has been incredible.
“I wish I could personally thank every one of you for your love and support…
“A huge part of Chester’s legacy will be the memories we hold of him in our hearts. He was an enthusiastic, playful father…
“An honest, and passionate musician, and a loyal friend. I’ve been touched to see memorials that have been held worldwide.”
We continue to send our own condolences to Bennington’s family during this impossibly difficult time.
May the singer rest in peace.
