Sugar Bear: Angry Yet Horny After Mediation with June Shannon

Mike "Sugar Bear" Thompson might not be the star of From Not to Hot, but he's sure getting some screen time. 

OBut on tonight's episode, his last mediation with Mama June left him so angry that his new wife encouraged him to calm down.

He had his own idea for how to blow off steam … and it involves his wife, Jennifer, and their shared bedroom. That's right, folks. Sugar Bear wants to bang out his frustrations.

From Not to Hot is about more than just June Shannon's insane weight loss and total makeover.

It's about her life and her family's life. And that includes her ex-husband, Sugar Bear.

In tonight's episode, he is fuming about his latest interaction with the From Not to Hot star.

"In mediation, I knew June was trying to push my buttons," he tells the confessional.

Nobody can push your buttons like family, folks. Especially an ex.

"And one of these days," he says. "I'm afraid I might just blow up again."

June Shannon accuses him of domestic violence, so that's … not a reassuring thing to hear.

The on-camere conversation between Sugar Bear and his wife, Jennifer Lamb, begins on a much more playful subject.

Sugar Bear wants to go to bed, and he does not wish to sleep.

Jennifer quickly understand what has him all riled up.

"You're just frustrated because of what happened at mediation."

And she knows how he processes that.

"More than anything, you just take it out in the bedroom and then you sleep."

Jennifer cautions him against letting his anger get the best of him.

"If you let this anger out in front of people, like lawyers and judges, that's what June wants."

Really, he should be processing his anger in a healthy way, regardless.

"When they see that, there is no way Mike they will let you see your daughter by yourself."

And really, should any child's safety be risked around someone with anger management issues? The answer is, categorically, no.

"You got to be the calm, Mike, and not the blowed up Incredible Hulk person."

That is a truly incredible line. Imagine Chris Hemsworth delivering that line to Mark Ruffalo in Thor: Ragnarok instead of parodying the ridiculous "sun's going down" line from Age of Ultron.

Of course, in this same episode, Jennifer White confesses that she has some reservations about Sugar Bear seeing Alana in the first place.

"I can't help thinking that Alana might not be Mike's."

A DNA test was brought up when Sugar Bear complained that June Shannon was keeping his daughter from him. But Jennifer's right — it could backfire.

"I know I would love Mike's child just like I love mine, but that lawyer said something that keeps sticking in my mind."

She has some definite opinions on how to respond to the test.

"If it turns out that Alana's not his, June Shannon would be out of my life forever. I sure in the hell ain't paying child support for a kid that’s not Mike's."

And Jennifer believes that she has good reason to doubt Alana's paternity.

"When he was with June, he was working a lot of nights. I wanna do a DNA test."

And you can see that clip below.

In the end, though, Jennifer suggests a "healthy" stress-relief technique: throwing cinderblocks at photos of June Shannon

(We don't know how common it is for someone to have cinder blocks on hand, but apparently Mike's issue is that he doesn't have any photos of his ex)

We're not necessarily saying that it's the healthiest way to process things, but … it's better than actual violence against a person.

Esther McGregor: Daughter of Ewan McGregor Mourns Divorce in Angry Song

Last year, the world learned that Ewan McGregor split from his wife of 22 years. Some say that they separated last Spring, but the secret got out when Ewan was spotted kissing Mary Elizabeth Winstead. Whoops.

Well, now Ewan is taking things a step further — because he's filed for divorce.

Ewan's 15-year-old daughter is not taking it well. And, as you can see in the video below, she's baring her soul in a song that kind of roasts her dad.

Ewan McGregor is one of those actors on whom everybody's mom has a crush. Or maybe I'm generalizing?

Anyway, he's best known for his role as Obi-Wan Kenobi in the Star Wars prequel trilogy.

Most recently, though, Ewan McGregor starred on Fargo. And do you know who one of his costars was?

Mary Elizabeth Winstead.

In one of those life-immitates-art scenarios that seem to happen when there's a middle-aged man spending a lot of time with a beautiful younger woman, the two went from sharing scenes to sharing kisses in public.

It's believed by many that Ewan McGregor may have separated from his wife, Eve Mavrakis, some time in the Spring of 2017.

Ewan's family has characterized this as a mid-life crisis. Ewan is 46 years old. Together, he and Eve have four children.

TMZ reports that Ewan McGregor has filed for divorce, citing irreconcilable differences.

He's filing for joint custody and expressed a willingness to pay spousal support.

TMZ mentions that their sources say that there's no pre-nup in place, so this could be a very costly split — with their shared property being split in half.

It may be that Ewan isn't too concerned about money at present because he anticipates a revival of his Star Wars career.

At this year's Golden Globes, Ewan McGregor was sporting a beard reminiscent of his Obi-Wman role.

Additionally, rumors have been circulating that an Obi-Wan film is in the works, though Disney has yet to confirm this. It will reportedly begin filming in 2019.

We don't imagine that he'll be locking lips with Mary Elizabeth Winstead in that — Obi-Wan's only canon love interest was Duchess Satine of Mandalore, and she died before the events of Revenge of the Sith.

But if he comes out of this divorce hurting financially, an influx of cash from Disney might be just the balm that he needs.

But there's more than one way to be hurt.

Did you know that those kissing photos with Mary Elizabeth Winstead surfaced on the birthday of Ewan McGregor's 15-year-old daughter, Esther McGregor?

October 22nd.

Divorce is an important option for so many couples, but more often than not, it's hell on kids.

Some children blame themselves.

Others feel betrayed by a parent who seems to be tearing apart their family. Esther McGregor clearly falls in the latter category.

In a video posted to Instagra, Esther sings a song that she wrote.

She all but spells out that it's about her father's new relationship. She even throws in a line about the world (herself included) seeing her dad kiss his new girlfriend on Esther's birthday.

In the lyrics, Esther responds to the "s–t" she "found online" with:

"I don’t know to forgive. I don’t know if I can. Ruining me."

She has a lovely voice. We're sorry for what she's going through. Divorce, as a process, can be hell. There's really nothing that you can tell the kids to show them the light at the end of the tunnel. This is a very healthy way for her to express herself.

Also, again, she sings beautifully:

Leah Remini Responds to Angry Kevin Can Wait Fans: Get A Life, Nerds!

Last week, the CBS sitcom Kevin Can Wait stunned fans by killing off a central character in a brief scene that also featured an awkward joke about kung-fu lessons.

The reasoning behind the decision was clear, as producers had previously announced their intention to cut Erinn Hayes’ character from the show in order to replace her with Leah Remini in the role of Kevin James’ wife.

But even though they saw it coming, many fans were surprised by the manner in which the show bumped Hayes off.

The show dealt with the death of Donna Gable with a few throwaway lines and the aforementioned kung-fu joke.

Barb on Stranger Things got more of a heartfelt send-off.

Not surprisingly, fans of KCW were highly critical of the bizarre plot twist.

“Still disgusted with #kevincanwait. Season 1 was so good. I hope season 2 bombs & gets cancelled. @KevinJames @LeahRemini @KevinCanWaitCBS,” tweeted one viewer.

Never one to shy away from a conflict, Remini shot back on Twitter:

“How do you really feel? I feel like you are sugar coating it,” she tweeted, adding:

“1) I didn”t make that decision 2) it’s a sitcom & it isn’t that deep 3) she is on another show 4) real things are going on in the world.”

We get the point that Leah is trying to make here:

Not only is Kevin Can Wait a work of fiction, it’s a work of fiction that’s not intended to be taken seriously.

That said, it’s always a little irritating when people who make their living from the arts lash out at fans for forming an emotional attachment to their work.

We’re with Leah on her first three points, but she loses us on “real things are going on in the world.”

Yeah, we’re sure the people who are tweeting about your show are well aware of that, Leah.

1. All that stuff going on in the world is a big part of why people gravitate toward harmless diversions like old-school three-camera sitcoms, and…

2. Most people are capable of caring what happens on their favorite shows while remaining cognizant of the important issues of the day. These people also possess rare talents such as the ability to walk and chew gum at the same time.

Look, Leah Remini extricated herself from the Church of Scientology and is now boldly telling the world about her struggles.

She’s a badass and she’s earned our eternal respect and admiration.

But she’s also earned a ton of cash as an actress because of her ability to make audiences relate to and identify with the characters she portrays.

So maybe not going out of her way to alienate that audience would be the right call.


Chip Gaines Shows Angry Side, Slams Ex-Partners

Chip Gaines may be the most chill dude on television.

No matter what budgetary or renovation problems he confronts on Fixer Upper, the HGTV host can always be relied upon to crack wise or crack a smile, often sharing some sort of awful dad joke with wife Joanna on air to diffuse the situation.

It’s a huge reason why Fixer Upper has grown into such a massive hit for the cable network.

But now we know what makes Chip Gaines angry:

Being accused by former business partners of being a lying, manipulating schemer who defrauded them out of a lot of money.

Late last week, John L. Lewis and Richard L. Clark filed a lawsuit against Gaines.

Former associates of his with Magnolia Real Estate, Lewis and Clark founded the company in 2007, back when it was a tiny operation based in Waco, Texas with just a couple of employees.

Just two days before HGTV picked up Fixer Upper to series, however, Lewis and Clark allege that Gaines forced them to sell their shares in Magnolia… for a paltry $ 2,500 each.

They claim Chip never told them the show was about to launch and/or that it would feature Magnolia in a prominent role, serving as a significant marketing and promotion tool.

In the four years since Fixer Upper premiered, Magnolia has expanded to nearly every state and now employs nearly 100 real estate agents.

Through threats of leaving to start his own competing business and even an alleged threat of violence, Gaines committed an act of fraud upon forcing Lewis and Clark to tell.

So they claim in these legal documents. And they are demanding over $ 1 million in damages.

Gaines initially responded to this lawsuit with hope and religion.

He quoted a passage from the bible (John 1:5, to be exact) not long after the suit went public, simply writing to followers:

“The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.”

It was a typically Chip-er response, similar to the message about “love” and “faith” that he Tweeted back when he and Joanna found themselves in the middle of a gay marriage scandal.

But Gaines clearly thought more about the actions of his ex-partners over the weekend and wrote a more bitter follow-up message. It reads:

“Fyi: Ive had the same cell # 15 yrs.. same email for 20 yrs. No one called or emailed? 4 years later ‘friends’ reach out via lawsuit.. humm.”


It’s pretty clear Lewis and Clark no longer consider themselves friends with Gaines.

As for why they waited so long to file a lawsuit? Perhaps they needed to actually see the impact Fixer Upper had on the business they formerly co-owned.

Or perhaps they really are full of crap, just looking to cash in on Chip’s success via a quick settlement of some kind.

“We are confident that these claims will be found to be meritless, and it is disappointing to see people try to take advantage of the hard work and success of Chip and Joanna Gaines,” Gaines’ attorney, Jordan Mayfield, told People Magazine last week.

However, Lewis and Clark’s lawyer, David Tekell, says the opposite. Obviously.

“It is all completely true and supported by actual facts,” he tells the same publication. “There are extensive quotes from texts and emails stated in the lawsuit that are accurate.”

The two men claim in their lawsuit that Gaines bought their shares of the real estate company with “insider information in hand” after having allegedly described the business as “less than worthless.”

We’ll find out soon enough who’s telling the truth here.

In the meantime, fans of Fixer Upper have been wondering for the past few weeks whether the show was going away because Joanna Gaines was leaving to pursue a different line of work.

She recently addressed these claims in pointed fashion.


Heather Morris Gets DWTS Boot, Twitter Gets Very Angry

Nope, that was not a Best Picture moment on Dancing with the Stars last night.

The wrong named was not called out. Heather Morris really was eliminated from the competition, despite having achieved a perfect score just minutes earlier.


That's what social media is asking in the wake of this shocker, as documented in the following collection of Tweets…

1. WTH?!?

Heather morris and maks chmerkovskiy
Morris and Maksim Chmerkovskiy did the Rumba to “Waterfalls” by TLC, garnered the first 40/40 of the season… and then got sent home.


This Tweet sums up how Twitter in general felt about the outcome.

3. Please Explain

Please explain
Might there have been backlash because Morris was overly qualified?

4. North Korea is Running Nuclear Tests?

Whatever. This is proof that the world really is in a precarious position.

5. Peace Out!
