Brad Pitt & Jennifer Aniston: ACTUALLY Getting Back Together?!

2018 is still very young, but it’s already demonstrated that it has a lot in common with most two-week-olds–namely, it’s obnoxious, and it produces a whole lot of sh-t.

Right out of the gate, this year has been giving 2017 a run for its money for the title of Most Excruciating Trip Around the Sun.

So it should come as no surprise that the public is desperate for the faintest glimmer of hope–or that they’ve turned to Brad Pitt and Jennnifer Aniston to provide that hope.

Yes, as you may have heard, rumors of Pitt and Aniston getting back together have been everywhere lately.

A few ambitious peddlers of tabloid fan fiction have even gone so far as to claim that Jen and Justin Theroux are headed for divorce and that it’s totally his fault for being a douche.

Now you don’t have to feel guilty about rooting for a Brad and Jen reconciliation!

It’s a tactic that was used to great effect by screenwriters of ’90s romantic comedies.

Anyway, we may have to wait a while for the Lifetime movie in which a movie star leaves his endearing sitcom actress wife for an evil humanitarian, but then eventually sees the error of his ways and comes crawling back.

Fortunately, the folks at Life & Style are offering plenty of Brad and Jen wish fulfillment in the meantime:

The tabloid claims that Pitt and Aniston are “giving their love a second shot.”

“Brad and Jen have bonded like never before over the past year,” one insider tells the mag.

“And they’ve been helping each other through their respective troubles.”

The source goes on to say:

“If the stars align, Brad and Jen could end up remarried.”

That’s about as non-committal as it gets, but believe it or not, L&S isn’t even standing by that eye-roll-inducing assertion.

After being called out by Gossip Cop and a number of other outlets, the outlet removed the Brad and Jen piece from its website, a rare precaution in the world of tabloid media.

Look is it possible that Brad and Jen will get back together at some point?

We suppose.

Is it likely?

Absolutely not.

In fact, Jen and Justin just rang in the new year together in Mexico.

So we guess that’s another way that 2018 is like a toddler–it will constantly overwhelm you with a profound sense of disappointment.

Miley Cyrus & Liam Hemsworth: Actually MARRIED?!

It can be tough to tell exactly what’s going in the relationship between Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth.

It’s been almost two years since Miley and Liam got back together after putting their relationship on hold for several months, and the couple’s been making up for lost time ever since.

From the time they first went public with their reconciliation, rumors of Miley and Liam getting engaged were everywhere on social media.

Of course, unlike most celebrity couples, Miley and Liam didn’t shy away from reports that they were planning to tie the knot.

In fact, at one point, Miley seemed to confirm the engagement … before dialing her statement back and stating that she doesn’t “envision” marriage in her future.

Well, if a new report from Radar Online is to be believed, it seems Miley’s vision of the future has changed considerably.

The outlet is reporting today that Miley and Liam got married on New Year’s Eve in his native Australia.

Sources claim the couple flew to the Byron Bay area, where they were joined by members of his family, who witnessed the exchange of vows.

One insider says Miley and Liam weren’t planning to get hitched when they flew to New South Wales, but made a spontaneous decision to tie the knot after being blown away by the beauty of the region.

“It felt right they are husband and wife after tying the knot in secret in Byron Bay,” say the source.

In the weeks since the ceremony, both Liam and Miley have kept relatively low profiles, but witnesses say they’re both sporting wedding bands.

We suppose there’s no reason not to believe this report.

After all, Miley and Liam have been together on and off since 2009, and they’ve openly discussed the possibility of marriage on several occasions.

Still, we can’t help but wonder why they would choose to keep this development under wraps.

Miley isn’t exactly the shy, retiring type, after all.

One would think she’d be eager to share big news like this with her legion of fans.

Then again, this isn’t the tongue-wagging, weed smoking Miley of yore that we’re dealing with.

Sources say Liam has made it clear that he prefers to keep his private life private, and Miley has reportedly agreed to respect those wishes.

Of course, if dude doesn’t like the spotlight, he shouldn’t have married Miley Cyrus … which he probably didn’t … unless he did …

Sigh … we’ll have further updates on this developing story as more information becomes available.

Logan Paul: Actually Punished by YouTube!

Give YouTube credit:

The company has not merely talked the talk when it comes to Logan Paul…

… it has also now walked the walk.

And, as a result, this douchebag of a social media presence will soon be a lot lighter in the wallet.

In the wake of Paul’s asinine video stunt late last month, YouTube has announced two punishments for the wildly popular vlogger:

1. He’s been dropped from the YouTube Red Comedy “Foursome.”

2. Google Preferred, which is the home to the top 5% of most-viewed YouTube content, says it will no longer aggregate Paul’s multimillion-subscriber channels for advertisers.

In other words: Paul has been cut off from his top income source as it pertains to this platform.

Said a spokesperson for YouTube on Wednesday evening:

“In light of recent events, we have decided to remove Logan Paul’s channels from Google Preferred.

“Additionally, we will not feature Logan in Season 4 of Foursome and his new originals are on hold.”

YouTube received a lot of flak for its delayed response to Paul’s video scandal, waiting 11 days to address what happened.

As a result, about six million views were recorded of the controversial footage – which featured Logan zooming in on a dead body in Japan, while also cracking wise about the corpse – before it was taken down.

Two days after this stunt went viral, Logan issued a lame apology.

It made a reference to his popularity online and said:

This is a first for me. I’ve never faced criticism like this before, because I’ve never made a mistake like this before. I’m surrounded by good people and believe I make good decisions, but I’m still a human being. I can be wrong.

I didn’t do it for views. I get views. I did it because I thought I could make a positive ripple on the Internet, not cause a monsoon of negativity. That’s never the intention.

I was misguided by shock and awe, as portrayed in the video. I still am.

Paul then made another attempt at a mea culpa, posting a video (which he monetized) on January 2 and saying into the camera:

Suicide is not a joke. Depression and mental illness are not a joke. We came here with an intent to focus on the haunted aspect of the forest.

This obviously just became very real, and obviously a lot of people are going through a lot of s— in their lives…

“From the bottom of my heart, I am sorry.”

From there, Paul said he was going to reflect on life and take a break from video posting.

He’s actually lived up to that vow, but Paul’s father left the following message on Instagram today:

paul, logan

LOGAN WILL BE BACK! SUPER FANS!! BUS UPDATES! MISTAKES!! We all screw up. It’s a part of life. Do I agree with everything my boys do. NO!

Do I agree with some of the things my friends do? NO! Do they disagree with some things I do? YES!

Face it folks……. we all f-ck up at one time or another. That’s life!! What we do with those mistakes, bad judgement or whatever term you give it , is what matters.

I love my boys and I am sooo proud of them.

The YouTube star has more than 15 million subscribers on his account.

Kylie Jenner and Travis Scott: Actually Spotted… Together!

Kylie Jenner is refusing to show the world her baby bump.

But the pregnant reality star has finally given fans a fresh look at the man responsible for the ongoing shame Jenner is apparently feeling over said bump.

We write, of course, about Travis Scott.

The little-known rapper started dating Kylie earlier this year.

It seemed more like a rebound relationship than true love, considering Kylie wasn’t that far removed from having banged Tyga for about two years.

But then came word than Kylie was pregnant with Scott’s baby – and everything changed.

Fans started to wonder whether the couple planned to conceive or were now planning to get married… or if they were even still together.

Perhaps they had split and this explained why Jenner has been so hesitant to confirm the pregnancy herself; out of embarrassment for not even being with her baby daddy any longer.

Hence, the surprise over the photo above.

It was snapped at the Kardashian Christmas Eve party this past Sunday evening and it certainly implies that Scott and Jenner are still an item, doesn’t it?

This is the first time they have shared a photo of themselves in the same place since Kylie’s pregnancy was announced.

Not that Kylie has announced it herself just yet.

The 20-year old has been loudly quiet on social media ever since word spread of her impending child.

Some fans thought she would make her big reveal on the Kardashian Christmas card, but nope.

She wasn’t included on it at all, adding fuel to the fire of irritation going around the Internet.

Where is your bump, Kylie?!?!? followers are asking.

Are you actually Kim’s surrogate and that’s why you’re staying silent? others have actually wondered.

These questions will continue to circulate until Kylie speaks out on her pregnancy.

It’s well within her rights to do so at the time she chooses and in the manner she chooses.

But you can’t blame the public for being curious and making assumptions, either, not when Kylie has spent her adult life sharing every nugget of personal information with her supporters… until now.

The speculation has grown so fierce that at least one report alleged Jenner was considering an abortion.

We can’t possibly verify that claim in one direction or the other, but we do assume this pregnancy wasn’t planned.

It may simply be that Kylie is still adjusting, that she needs a whole lot of time to come to grips with all the ways in which her life is about to change.

This would mean she’s taking the pregnancy seriously and that would be a good thing.

As for Travis Scott?

He hasn’t said a word. We have no idea how he feels about this baby (reported to be a girl) and how involved he’ll be in its life.

But the photo at the outset of this article is a positive sign.

We’re happy to see Kylie and Travis getting along well and we hope this portends a healthy environment in which their kid will be raised.

Audrey Roloff Wonders: What Actually Is Love?!?

Audrey Roloff is in a contemplative mood.

Okay, granted: when is Audrey Roloff ever not in a contemplative mood?!?

We say this without a hint of judgment, of course.

It’s just pretty much a fact that this Little People, Big World star is often pondering the bigger questions in life.

Just consider what she wrote last month on Instagram, along with a precious photo of her and daughter Ember Jean.

“I want to be someone who spends more time reading truth, engaging wisdom, and listing for His still small voice, than sharing my own incomplete oversimplified perspectives.”

Audrey was saying at the time that she needs to spend less time on social media and more time soaking in every aspect of life.

Ironically now, however, Roloff has returned to her Instagram page in order to hone in on perhaps the most important aspect of said life:

LOVE.

“Love. Have we lost grip on what it really is?” she asks her followers, elaboraring as follows:

“It’s so commonly mistaken for tolerance, or watered down to a feeling or desire. We are so quick to say we love this and love that… but have we cheapened the meaning?

“Sure, I “love” Christmas and “love” campfires, but then I also love Jeremy… So how do we reconcile this?’

We can safely say we’ve never thought about this emotion in such a way.

Color us intrigued, though.

“We must reclaim the definition of love,” Audrey believes, adding:

“True love is so much more than desire for something or someone. It’s patient, kind, compassionate, selfless, fervent, unconditional, honest, encouraging, enduring, and full of grace and truth.

“Love is not a feeling; it’s a sacrifice, a commitment, daily choice – a verb.”

Tell us more, Audrey.

You have our attention…

I love Timothy Keller’s words, “In any relationship, there will be frightening spells in which your feelings of love dry up. And when that happens, you must remember that the essence of marriage is that it is a covenant, a commitment, a promise of future love.

So what do you do? You DO THE ACTS OF LOVE, despite your lack of feeling.

You may not feel tender, sympathetic, and eager to please, but in your actions you must BE tender, understanding, forgiving and helpful.

What will happen if we follow this advice?

As time goes on you will not only get through the dry spells, but they will become less frequent and deep, and you will become more constant in your feelings. This is what can happen if you decide to love.”

LOVE IS A VERB.

Well…okay then!

Do you agree with Audrey’s take? 

Do you understand Audrey’s take?

Are you looking forward to new episodes of Little People, Big World?

They are expected to delve deeply into Audrey’s pregnancy and how she and Jeremy are doing as parents to Ember.

Look for these episodes to premiere in March…and look through adorable Roloff family photos below!

Meghan Markle: Is She Actually “Black?” Should You Care?

A majority of the free world is over the proverbial moon about Prince Harry being engaged to Meghan Markle.

This is the case for a number of reasons…

ONE, Harry is a member of The Royal Family and many folks go crazy bananas for any news surrounding these British people, let alone wedding news.

SECOND, Markle is an American.

THIRD, Markle has been an actress for years on the surprisingly successful USA Network series Suits.

FOURTH, Markle is divorced, which would have made her persona non grata in the Royal Family just a few decades ago.

FIFTH, Markle is of mixed heritage, a fact that unfortunately has led to some online harassment by a certain awful section of the Internet… but which has been celebrated by another section of the Internet.

You see, Markle’s mother is African-American. And her father is white.

Questions about her background have caused the search term “Meghan Markle mom and dad” to increase by 450% every since she was confirmed as Harry’s fiancee:

markle trend

ABC News, meanwhile, posted an article titled For many black women, Meghan Markle’s engagement offers ‘hope” on December 5.

It cited the trending nature of hashtags such as “#blackgirlmagic and #blackprincess” as evidence that Markle was resonating with many African-Americans.

Danielle Belton, managing editor of an online magazine dedicated to black culture, said in the piece that Markle’s engagement makes fairy tales seem attainable for black women.

“It’s a fantasy where even though you didn’t get Prince Harry, part of you thinks maybe I could’ve … maybe he was available,” Belton told ABC.

But is this really a fair assessment?

Should an entire culture really place so much responsibility and assign so much importance to one person who happened to fall in love with a prince?

abc tweet

Moreover, is Markle actually black?

We most definitely don’t care.

But the Twitterverse has been debating these questions ever since she burst on to the international scene.

Just consider the following points and arguments being made on the social media network:

markle twitter

We also liked this Tweet by @UnRoyalReporter:

Must admit I am curious to see how a smart, black, American, feminist who quotes #Chomsky reacts to a life locked in a dusty damp palace with dullard toffs who’s only interests are horses, hunting & hierarchy #teamMeghan @meghanmarkle.

There’s something insulting about reducing Markle to nothing but her skin color, isn’t there?

She’s clearly a very intelligent and layered woman, regardless of what ethnicity she qualifies as in the eyes of strangers.

Sadly, though, controversy has already broken out over a magazine allegedly editing Markle to look more white, although at least neither Harry nor Meghan are caught up in these silly debates.

“At the end of the day I am proud of who I am and where I have come from and we have never put any focus on that, we have just focused on who we are as a couple,” said the actress in a joint interview with Harry.

To that, we say… amen!

Jenelle Evans: ACTUALLY Pregnant With Fourth Child?!

If you're a fan of the popular reality franchise, then you're likely aware that Teen Mom pregnancy rumors seem to surface at the rate of about one per week.

Of course, they turn out to be true just often enough to continue capturing the attention of fans.

The latest reports have to do with Jenelle Evans and what fans believe is her burgeoning baby bump.

Jenelle is married to David Eason these days, but that doesn't mean she'd be bringing the kid into a stable situation.

Far from it, in fact …

1. The Bump’s First Appearance

The first sighting of Jenelle’s supposed baby bump came during her wedding to David Eason back in September.

2. A Second Sighting?

Many swore they saw the bump again when Jenelle and David flew to LA for the Teen Mom 2 reunion show.

3. Done With Kids!

At the time, Jenelle staunchly denied being knocked up. “I’m not pregnant, I’m done with kids,” she told Radar Online.

4. A History of Lying

Of course, Jenelle has a history of being less than honest with this sort of thing. She denied being pregnant with her third child, Ensley Jolie, for most of her first trimester.

5. Busted…In More Ways Than One

Jenelle came clean only after a police report from a car accident described her as being pregnant.

Little People, Big World Fans are Actually Dragging Ember Over This Outfit

Little People, Big World viewers may be growing a tad anxious for the TLC series to return.

We say this because a handful of these fans are growing a bit salty online.

We’ve taken note of this on a few recent occasions.

For example, Audrey Roloff recently received backlash for the outfit she wore to the doctor’s office.

We’re not kidding. We’re totally serious.

Some Internet users gave Roloff flak because she donned ripped jeans for a check-up.

Elsewhere, meanwhile, Amy Roloff can scarcely do anything without hearing from a certain segment of her followers.

She is somehow still getting grief for keeping her last name after she and Matt filed for divorce.

And now it’s Ember Jean Roloff’s turn to face the insulting music.

Yes, Ember Jean Roloff. The baby who was born in September.

You won’t believe what some folks have said in response to the precious photo above.

Amy shared the picture on Saturday, along with a caption that reads as follows:

“Cute aggression has peaked. I’m going to have the wrinkliest lips when I’m older from curling them in and squeezing them together – aka making “the face” as Jermey calls it.

“It’s the cute aggression face.

“I make it when I think Jer is really cute, or Pine is really cute, but it’s a whole new level with Ember…

“Sometimes my lips even get sore. Anyone else?”

How adorable, right?

Audrey can’t stop smiling over her daughter.

Nope, wrong.

Some trolls out there found something to criticize about this image of mother and very young child.

“Why always the ugly brown tights?” one critic wondered upon seeing the snapshot, while another added:

“Very cute but she is never dressed (with) nice little colors.”

What can even be said about these pieces of criticism?!?

If you find it necessary to say mean things about how a mother dresses her baby, perhaps you ought to take a long hard look in the mirror, as opposed to at that baby’s ensemble.

Seriously.

Just don’t do it, okay?

Thankfully, Audrey isn’t letting the backlash get to her.

Far from it.

She’s just savoring every second she has with her child.

“I’m torn between wanting her to fit in my palms forever, and being so excited to watch her personality unfold,” Roloff recently explained on Instagram, adding:

“When I catch a gummy grin or listen to her little owl sounds I can’t help but unravel with joy.

“These are moments without the pressure of time, fully embraced and deeply cherished. Baby girl, you are a blessing, heritage, and reward.”

Amen, Auds.
