There are lots of fun things about being a celebrity.
Money, fame, adoring fans … what’s not to like?
As it turns out, if you just think about it for a minute, there are actually quite a few things not to like — for instance, all those strangers who feel like it’s OK to criticize you for each and every thing you do.
Sometimes it’s deserved, of course, but a lot of times, haters hate just for the fun of it.
The Duggars know that. They know it very, very well.
To be clear, the Duggars have done several things through the years that deserve heaps and heaps of hate.
That horrible molestation scandal, and the way Jim Bob and Michelle handled it? Despicable.
Josh’s Ashley Madison mistakes and his admission that he was addicted to both sex and porn? Yes, sure, throw all kinds of shade at that.
But a few days ago, Jill posted this photo of her younger son, Samuel, on Instagram:
And surely there are things more deserving of your outrage than this.
“That moment when you hear the rumble and you’re like, ‘oh no! Quick! Stand him upright before he….too late,” Jill captioned the picture.
She added the hashtags “Samuel Scott Dillard,” “Sam the Man,” and “blowout,” just in case you needed a little more information.
The photo is instantly relatable for anyone who’s ever spent any significant amount of time around babies. Things like this happen, and they happen often.
But still, a lot of people feel like, for many reasons, Jill was wrong for sharing this.
“What would possess you to post such a dumb picture, Jill?” one of her followers asked. “Slow day at the house of Derelict Dillweed?”
All right, that’s a pretty solid nickname for Derick Dillard, we’re not going to lie. But things do get a lot worse.
“Why the hell would you post a pic of poop coming thru onesie?” another person asked. “Just another reason showing how you ‘girls’ really don’t have a life outside of being submissive to your hubbys.”
Someone told Jill that her post was “really not in good taste,” and someone else said “Seriously, it’s gross and nobody wants to see that.”
For one of her followers, the picture was simply too much — this person wrote “SMDH – yes quick take a pic post it on social media. Screw the fact he should of been changed.”
“Same as you did to poor Izzy bind him in a blanket let him cry as you take pics to post. Social Media comes before your kids damn Jill you are your parents!”
Way harsh, right?
But honestly, these people are kind of right.
If you’re on social media yourself, there’s a good chance that you’ve seen photos like these — some parents just enjoy sharing things like this.
You’d think that more people would understand that their friends don’t really care to see picture of actual poop while scrolling through their Instagram feeds …
But obviously you’d think wrong.
Still, this is all harmless, and we’re sure precious little Samuel didn’t suffer too much while his mom put off changing him for a second to take this picture.
Though to be clear, it’s definitely gross.
The Kardashians and Jenners have unveiled a new holiday card…
… actually, allow us to amend this statement:
Most of the Kardashians and Jenners have unveiled a new holiday card.
In an image shared across the social media accounts of all featured above, Kim Kardashian, Kris Jenner, Kendall Jenner, Khloe Kardashian and Kourtney Kardashian all are posing for the camera.
(Most are doing so in very serious and dramatic fashion for some reason, too.)
But no Internet user out there cares very much about these women.
They only care about the one woman NOT in the picture.
We speak, of course, about Kylie Jenner.
Just like she was absent from the Kardashian Christmas card, despite rumors that she would reveal her pregnancy on the final version, Kylie is absent from this family photo as well.
And lest you think her absence is just something celebrity gossip sites are fixated on, as we attempt to stir up controversy where there is none, consider what Kourtney wrote as a caption on Instagram:
When you can’t find the rest of the family for the photo …
This is clearly a reference to Kylie’s whereabouts.
The 20-year old is expecting her very first child with semi long-time boyfriend Travis Scott.
But Kylie is yet to say a word about the bun in her oven, choosing instead to basically go radio silent on Twitter and Instagram ever since the news went viral.
This decision has irritated her followers, many of whom just wish to send Jenner their best wishes. They cannot do so, however, until she actually verifies the pregnancy herself.
Heck, the choice to keep mum has even led to a few crazy theories, such as some speculating that Kylie is Kim’s surrogate… and others thinking she has already had the baby.
We doubt either of these rumors are true.
But Kylie is Internet savvy.
She should realize that her ongoing silence on the issue is simply generating more and more chatter.
Why doesn’t she just set the record straight? Why doesn’t she confirm the news and announce her due date and watch the congratulations roll in?
There are two possibilities:
- She is just incredibly ashamed over this whole development and remains in some kind of denial.
- This is all part of a media strategy to be mysterious and quiet and then spring her baby bump (or the baby itself!) on folks once anticipation has reached its peak level.
For the record, we hear Jenner is due in February and is having a girl.
Elsewhere, with Khloe also expecting and Kim said to welcome her third child via the aforementioned surrogate, there’s a new rumor out:
Could Kendall Jenner ALSO be pregnant?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?
The above selfie has people wondering because maybe, possibly there’s a baby bump there.
The model, though, has denied this crazy theory, joking online in response that she just “likes bagels” and, we guess, recently ate some.
We likely believe her.
But take another look at the family photo at the outset of this article.
Kendall is standing in the back, her belly covered up by the relatives in front of her.
Could this be because she’s hiding something?!?
We’re just asking.

Man, it sure has been a hell of a year for Kylie Jenner, huh?
And not really in a good way, either.
She’s had more success with her cosmetics company, but it hasn’t been without controversy — who could forget when she tried to charge people hundreds of dollars for a cheap set of makeup brushes?
She debuted her very own reality show, Life of Kylie, and while that was an accomplishment, the show was garbage. The content, the ratings, it was all just so bad.
Another big that that happened for Kylie in 2017 was that she finally broke up with Tyga for good.
That was very exciting, but instead of taking time to herself, to chill and have fun like a 19-year-old should, she immediately began dating Travis Scott.
And a few seconds after they got together, she got pregnant.
Yep, Kylie’s pregnancy is no doubt one of the biggest celebrity stories of the year, and for good reason.
There is not one single thing about the whole entire thing that is not, as the kids would say, juicy AF.
Unfortunately, it sounds like the story is getting even juicier now — because Travis may have just set Kylie up to become a single mother.
In a new report that will shock literally no one, a source tells Radar Online that on Christmas, Travis told Kylie that he simply “can’t do this anymore.”
“He finally plucked up the courage to tell Kylie he’s done,” the insider claims, “that he loves her and will always be around for the baby, but they’re not compatible as a couple.”
And what’s worse, “Kylie was totally blindsided even though everyone else in her life saw this coming.”
“She’s still refusing to admit it’s over, and begging him to stick around.”
Poor Kylie … but like the chatty source here says, everyone else in her life saw this coming. Even the people who just observe her life from afar.
Depending on her exact due date, she and Travis were dating for maybe a month or two before she got pregnant. Nine times out of ten, you’re not going to get a fairytale ending from that kind of situation.
Besides that, we’ve been hearing for a little while now that things haven’t been all that great between them.
Reports claimed that they’d been fighting about where to spend their first Christmas together — he wanted to bring her home to his family in Texas, and she wanted to stay with her family in L.A.
They did take a photo together at Kris Jenner’s Christmas Eve party, so it looks like we know who won that fight.
Before that photo, however, they hadn’t been seen together for a while, and that’s at least in part because Travis has been touring a lot while Kylie’s been in hiding.
He’s even performing a concert in Miami tonight, so they’d have missed their first New Year’s Eve together, too.
You know, if he hadn’t dumped her on Christmas anyway.
We’d say that 2018 will be a better year for Kylie, but let’s be real … does anyone actually think she’s going to take to motherhood right away?
Babies are hard, and they’re probably harder when you’re a 20-year-old mega celebrity who’s used to flying around in private jets and dedicating 95% of your time to wigs and lip injections and dumb selfies.
Bless this mess. Just … just bless it.
