Audrey Roloff Keeps Trying to Profit Off Marital Advice

Audrey Roloff has a seemingly happy and healthy marriage.

This appears to be the case even though the Little People, Big World star helps anchor a reality television show…

… and we all know what fate typically befalls couples that appear on these sort of programs.

What we’re trying to say is this:

Audrey Roloff may very well be someone from whom you should take marital advice.

She and Jeremy definitely make their relationship work.

But the TLC personality has come under fire of late for not just offering up words of wisdom for her fellow wives around the Internet – but for clearly trying to profit off these words.

Take a recent Instagram post, for example.

On Wednesday, Roloff shared the photo above and included with it a lengthy caption.

It begins as follows:

To find and still seek, now that is love. This is the lifeblood behind our mission @beating50 .

We hope to inspire couples to keep seeking, keep pursuing, and keep learning how to love their husbands and wives beyond their wedding day. T

he pursuit shouldn’t end with, “I do.” What fun is that? Your marriage (or future marriage) should be a lifelong love story.

The point here is not a new one.

Nor is it a misguided one.

Audrey is basically saying couples need to work on their marriage and not take their partners for granted.

We very much agree with that theme.

But then Roloff continues:

Marriage is not about saying “I do” in a moment, it’s about living out “I do” in the mundane everyday moments #stayingido.

Your actions and attitude should reflect the promise you made to love – for better or for worse. To “still seek” implies a relentless pursuit. 

LOVE IS A VERB.

This is not the first time Audrey has waxed very poetically about her definition of love.

She did so HERE, too.

Both times, meanwhile, Roloff concluded her message with an offer and a link that got her in trouble.

“Want one of these rad sweatshirts “Love is a verb” sweatshirts (also comes in black)? Grab one for 10% off with code LOVE2018 – link in bio shop.beating50percent.com,” concluded the mother of one this time around.

And it’s just….YEESH. Come on, Auds.

A handful of followers find it very distasteful that Roloff included constant links to her business website when talking about things as personal as love and religion.

It’s hard to take Roloff’s theme very seriously when it’s clear she’s just saying it to sell some sweatshirts.

Last summer, fans had this same issue when it came to how frequently Audrey brought up the topic of God.

Is she serious about her faith?

Does she truly love her husband?

Of course and of course.

Moreover, we aren’t suggesting that she isn’t free to make money off her clothing line. She absolutely has this right and absolutely should be an entrepreneur if she so desires.

But perhaps she should stop mixing personal advice with her business endeavor.

It just leaves a bad taste in our mouths.

Do you feel the same way?

Lala Kent Gives Dating Advice: I’d Rather Be a Bitch Than Dumb!

It’s only been a few days since Vanderpump Rules star Lala Kent went public with her married boyfriend, and now she’s offering some dating advice like some sort of relationship expert.

Now, anyone can give advice — you don’t need a degree to have common sense or to tell someone that their boyfriend crossed a line.

But in Lala Kent’s case, the advice that she’s dishing out is … controversial.

So, Lala Kent doesn’t limit her good deeds to stripping down to fight SeaWorld and other aquatic circuses. She also gives out relationship advice.

Taking to Instagram Live, Lala Kent revealed a “f–king crazy” direct message that she’d received from a fan who wanted her input.

“This girl was talking about this guy that she’s pretty into, she’s been seeing him for a while.”

And the girl has a specific reason for talking to Lala for advice.

“There’s quite an age gap, it’s kind of like me and my man, she’s my age, maybe a little older…he’s like in his later 40s.”

Randall Emmett is 46. Lala will turn 28 this year. 

“And they’ve never been official but he was like really cute at the beginning and then he falls off the earth.”

Uh-oh. That’s not a great sign.

“He’s like inconsistent, which as women I think is f–ked up, like don’t be inconsistent.”

It might mean that he’s unsure about this relationship. It might mean that he’s lying to this girl — and maybe to someone else in his life.

Or he might be just using this girl to feel young, and then running off when it starts to feel too much like a relationship.

Whatever the cause, Lala doesn’t like it any more than we do.

“If you’re gonna be inconsistent, women we need to give them the boot, it’s not OK.”

Lala goes on to explain that the girl went to dinner with this older man and that man’s friend before the New Year.

The girl had a few drinks at the bar because she was nervous.

“So she gets a little too drunk at the bar she says, they get into a cab and she starts to take her clothes off in the cab.”

The girl was making certain that the driver couldn’t see her as she did this.

It did not go over well.

“She started taking her pants off and he started reprimanding her and getting upset and made her feel really stupid.”

Our first thought is that this girl, who’s clearly feeling insecure in this relationship enough that she’s anxious before dinner and then wants reassurance that this older man finds her sexy, should dump his ass.

Lala Kent, we’re happy to say, feels the same way.

“I’ll tell you how I would react, first of all my p–sy is no longer yours to have fun with, you’re a f–king asshole.”

That’s good advice.

Here comes the controversy:

“You make me feel dumb, I’m not about that life; you can call me a homewrecker, you can call me a bitch, you can call me whatever you want, when you make me feel dumb, I’m wiping my hands clean.”

To be clear, if a guy’s calling a girl names in a way that she’s not okay with, that’s not any more okay than ridiculing a girl as “stupid.”

What this girl was doing sounds desperate, which suggests to us that this guy is standoffish and cold — maybe even more like this in front of his friend.

That’s no good for a relationship, folks.

If a guy isn’t friendly or is only friendly sometimes, that means that he has his own emotional issues, and it’s not your job to crack through the ice. Move on to a guy who can show you how much he appreciates you.

And if a guy makes you feel dumb — or calls you ugly names or otherwise demeans you outside of consensual bedroom roleplay — dump his ass at the curb. It’s 2018 and awful guys don’t deserve great girlfriends.

Khloe Kardashian: I Don’t Need Pregnancy Advice! My Sisters Can Shut the F–k Up!

Khloe Kardashian is expecting, and that’s been out in the open for months, now. Khloe even finally confirmed her pregnancy.

And while Khloe melted the internet with her “mom” photo, she says that not everything’s quite perfect. Namely, she’s getting way too much family advice.

She wants one of her sisters in particular to “shut the f–k up.” Uh-oh.

Khloe Kardashian spoke to Entertainment Tonight and gushed about her pregnancy. And what’s been getting on her nerves.

For one thing, she’s pretty darn tired of hearing people tell her to stop her workouts.

“It’s bizarre to me that people don’t want me to be happy and stay healthy and fit.”

We don’t know that we’ve heard that sentiment from anyone … except maybe from Amy Schumer that one time.

But we guess that people have been concern-trolling Khloe about her workouts, saying that it’s “not good” for her pregnancy.

“My doctor wants me to work out everyday if I could, so I’m doing doctor’s orders and I feel good.”

We’ve seen countless “fit mom” pregnancies, and it never seems to harm the baby, folks.

In case some mothers read this and go “wait, the doctors never told me that,” Khloe explains why the doctors want her to keep working out.

“Whatever you do before you’re pregnant, you’re allowed to continue, and they say it leads for a better delivery.”

To clarify, she means in terms of fitness. Obviously, you don’t get to keep drinking alcohol.

“I feel great, and I would feel horrible if I was just sitting around, overeating all day…”

Ah, yes. What a nightmare it would be to sit and overeat. (That is sarcasm, folks)

“I don’t have swollen feet, I don’t have a lot of these things because I’m staying so active right now. So, as long as I can, I want to keep that up.”

Khloe then goes into talking about her show.

No, not Keeping Up With The Kardashians. The one you’ve probably forgotten about: Revenge Body.

“From season one to season two… we change the format a little bit, and also I now have celebrity guests that want to come on and join the show, which is cool.”

Honestly, the celebrity guests that she had on Kocktails With Khloe were a selling point, so this sounds like a good idea.

“There’s way more pressure for season two, I will say, but it’s exciting.”

And Khloe talks about the show’s title.

“I never thought of my body as revenge, I just did something for myself, but everyone else was like, ‘You have this revenge body.’ So I played with it.”

Success is the best revenge, folks.

“I was like, OK, cool let’s run with that.’ And now, I think the hardest thing is maintaining.”

Yep. One day we’ll all get patches or cybernetic implants to keep our flesh prisons looking how we want. In the mean time … we’re stuck with exercise.

“I think its important to show people you can turn your life around. You can go through hell and high water, and you can still come out and have a beautiful positive happy life.”

And then Khloe talks about a major pain in her pregnancy: getting advice from her family:

“[I got] a lot [of advice from my sisters]. Too much.”

She’s a first time mom, and her sisters include a couple of very experienced moms.

“I’ve gotten to the point… I’m like, ‘OK, shut the f–k up and take your own advice.'”

That’s … pretty harsh. And Khloe singles out once sister in particular.

“Like, I love Kourtney, but… I’m going to figure it all out, I promise you. We’re all going to learn.”

Honestly, I’m going to figure it out is not a reassuring line from a soon-to-be parent. Also, Khloe’s never balked at giving people “advice.”

“So some advice is great, but it’s also not what you say, it’s how you say it.”

Speaking to Ellen, Khloe said that her pregnancy was miserable for the first trimester.

And she reiterates that point:

“The first few months is not sexy, because it’s like, you’re just a little chubby. No one will know you’re pregnant, they’re just like, ‘Oh, you should get back in the gym.'”

Well, she kept it secret. Also, anyone telling you to get back to the gym is probably a terrible friend.

“And you just feel the worst. So I think now that I’m showing more I feel sexy.”

Uh, sure.

“Gosh, just having a family [is the most unexpected gift].”

Not too unexpected though, right?

June Shannon Offers Weight Loss Advice, Gets SLAMMED!

Season 2 of Mama June: From Hot to Not premieres on January 12th. 

As you know, June Shannon is going to be a beauty queen. The first season documented the steps that she took to lose weight. so the second season will show her trying to make the most of it.

But how, exactly, does she keep the weight off? June Shannon shared how … and she’s getting roasted over it.

Mama June Shannon spoke to People about how she’s retained her significantly trimmer figure since she first underwent her body transformation.

“It’s all about portion control for me.”

That’s a common, if not fun, answer. Nobody wants to hear that their fondness for eating a “family size” meal themselves might be what’s keeping them back from attaining their dream body.

“It’s not easy to eat like you’re ‘supposed to’ and hit the gym all the time, but I’m just trying to maintain it the best I can.”

Mama June also shares that she sleeps until 1pm and, in the process, skips breakfast — cutting out an entire meal’s calories while also relishing in the comfort of her bed.

“This sounds bad. But I’m more of a snacker.”

Snacking can be fine — or even, for some metabolisms, ideal — depending on what the snack is.

June says that a normal snack for her is grapes and cheese.

For dinner, she prefers “baked chicken and quinoa” or “baked pork chops, corn and beans.”

“If I’m craving something sweet, Little Debbie jelly cakes are my favorite cheat snack.”

Those do sound good.

Just as when news broke of a June Shannon workout video, people were quick to point out that June’s “advice” seemed … less than helpful.

And possibly inherently dishonest.

“Her secret to weight loss?” One commenter replied. “I’m pretty sure it was the gastric sleeve which physically prevented her from eating.”

Another took even harsher aim at Mama June, writing:

“I hate when people say they have lost all that weight. No you had it surgically removed. There is a difference between someone busting their ass to lose weight and having the fat sucked out.”

(Honestly, that seems silly to us — weight loss is weight loss)

Another comment, however, cut right to the point:

“I’m pretty sure if someone paid for all my expenses for weight loss surgery, excess skin removal, a personal trainer, and chef that I’d be able to lose weight and keep it off too!”

That’s a fair point — there’s much more at work for Mama June than “portion control” and sleeping in.

That same commenter went a little overboard with their next jab, however, writing:

“She’s still a hillbilly skank no matter what her weight!”

“Breakfast is the most important meal of the day,” another commenter wrote. “And I’m pretty sure she had surgery to lose all that weight.”

She sure did have surgery. (Honestly, though, who has time to eat breakfast? Do people really still do that?)

“What a horrible woman! So into herself. How about getting up at a normal time and teaching your kids to eat properly.”

If you don’t have a job or pets or young children to get you up, 1pm is a perfectly normal time to get up. (Why get up before noon if you don’t have to?)

“If we could all be lazy pieces of [excrement] and sleep until 1pm,” laments another judgmental commenter. “Kids have school, have a job, and why waste half a good day being worthless?”

So, some of the backlash seems unwarranted — why do some people get so worked up over when someone else gets out of bed? (Especially since, you know, someone who gets up late was probably up late also)

But some of these seemed to have a point. Mama June’s “secrets” to success seemed to have a lot to do with some massively expensive procedures and luxuries that few can afford.

Taylor Swift Offers Important Advice to Sexual Assault Victims

On the entertainment front, Taylor Swift had a relatively quiet year.

She released a new album and announced a new tour toward the end of 2017, but she remained almost entirely silent for a solid three-quarters of the past 12 months.

In front of the camera or on social media, that is.

Outside of the music industry, Swift was actually involved in a lawsuit that perhaps helped set the tone for the #MeToo movement.

Following allegations that a DJ groped her during a 2013 photo opportunity, Swift testified under oath as part of her harassment lawsuit against David Mueller.

She had alleged that Mueller reached under her skirt and grabbed her butt during a meet-and-greet four years ago, an accusation that actually prompted Mueller to sue Swift for defamation.

But Taylor refused to back down.

First, her testimony and other pieces of evidence caused a judge to dismiss Mueller’s lawsuit.

Then, the singer won her countersuit against Mueller, earning raucous praise for how she handled herself on the witness stand amidst a barrage of victim-shaming attempts by Mueller’s lawyer.

(“I am not going to allow your client to make me feel like it is any way my fault because it isn’t,” she said at one point to the attorney.)

Due to how strongly she stood up for herself and, by extension, other victims of harassment, Swift was included this week on Time’s Person of the Year cover:

The issue honors the “Silence Breakers” who have helped exposed an unseemly number of sexual harassers and predators around the country.

Asked by the publication why she was so aggressive in her fight against Mueller, Swift replied as follows:

“I figured that if he would be brazen enough to assault me under these risky circumstances and high stakes, imagine what he might do to a vulnerable, young artist if given the chance.

“It was important to report the incident to his radio station because I felt like they needed to know.

“The radio station conducted its own investigation and fired him. Two years later, he sued me.”

Swift added that she spoke to Kesha at one point to find out more of what she went through after suing producer Dr. Luke for sexual misconduct.

To her fans and anyone else dealing with abuse or harassment, Swift has this to say;

My advice is that you not blame yourself and do not accept the blame others will try to place on you.

You should not be blamed for waiting 15 minutes or 15 days or 15 years to report sexual assault or harassment, or for the outcome of what happens to a person after he or she makes the choice to sexually harass or assault you.

The superstar also praised all the “brave women” speaking out in public about their experiences for helping “move the needle in terms of letting people know that this abuse of power shouldn’t be tolerated.”

The #MeToo movement got underway in earnest after Harvey Weinstein was exposed as a serial sexual predator.

After Alyssa Milano sent a Tweet that asked women (and men) to use the hashtag #MeToo if they had been the victim of any sort of unwanted sexual act or comment, an endless array of social media users followed suit.

As a result, celebrities such as Kevin Spacey, Louis CK, Charlie Rose and Matt Lauer have lost their jobs (and their statuses) in the wake of troubling allegations.

We can likely expect more and more famous men to be outed as generally awful people in this regard in the coming weeks and months.

It’s depressing and disturbing to learn of these incidents.

But it’s clearly about time these perpetrators were held accountable for their despicable actions.
