Scott Disick: If You Can’t Buy REAL Diamonds, Don’t Buy Anything!

it sounds like Scott Disick and Sofia Richie are in love. It also sounds like, if Scott decides to put a ring on it, he’ll be presenting Sofia with old-fashioned diamonds.

We say this because Scott just posted a seemingly random rant about diamonds, and which diamonds he considers to be “valid” or not.

Is he a spokesperson for the diamond industry … or has he been going ring-shopping recently?

In a post that was neither tagged as an ad nor labored as any sort of “partnership,” Scott wirtes:

“Diamonds are THE LORD’s best friend!!!!!”

We don’t know how else we would have expected for him to start this post.

“I’ve stacked up a pretty nice collection here.”

We’re sure that Scott owns all sorts of diamond jewelry — and that he has bought even more.

“But one thing is for sure I would never buy anything but real diamonds.”

By “real,” he refers to diamonds that formed over millions of years in the ground, rather than those created with science.

“There are companies out there now talking about cultured or cultivated or above ground diamonds. AYFKM?”

By “AYFKM,” he means are you f–king kidding me. He’s, uh, very indignant about his dense chunks of carbon.

Scott Disick LOVES diamonds

Scott goes on to ridicule the idea of buying diamonds that weren’t extracted from under piles of dirt.

“Seriously, What person in their right mind would buy ANYTHING BUT THE REAL THING?”

Someone who isn’t rich. Or someone who understand what diamonds are. Or someone who is unwilling to support the diamond industry for political reasons.

“I think it’s an ass-backward move if you do because they HAVE ZERO VALUE, and how could you walk around wearing something FAKE?”

Hilarious to see someone talking about diamonds and value with no trace of irony.

“Trust me on this one, if you are buying diamonds for yourself or someone else make sure that they were not grown in a FACTORY or anything like that.”

Well, if there’s one person we trust to give us advice, it’s Scott Disick. His choices are always good ones, right?

“Make sure they are the real deal. #GetReal”

So, diamonds are basically the same as coal. They’re carbon, formed from mostly prehistoric plant debris. Millions of years of heat and pressure created these diamonds.

Diamonds are not especially rare. They are expensive because the diamond industry buys them en masse and then sits on a stockpile in order to create an artificial scarcity in the market.

In real life, diamonds are mostly just valuable for industrial purposes.

Artificial diamonds can be created in a laboratory, and much cheaper, are definitely still diamonds, and — most importantly for many people — they are not “blood diamonds.”

The term “blood diamond” or “conflict diamond” applies to diamonds mined in war zones, particularly in Africa, and the sale of these diamonds is used to fund those conflicts.

Many consider the diamond industry to be unethical and many, particularly Millennials, show less interest in diamonds than previous generations did.

Scott Disick is in that place in life where he’s rich enough to be really, truly rich … but not so rich that he’s above playing spokesperson on Instagram for the right price.

We’re not claiming that he was paid or compensated in this particular post … though many assume that he was.

It is entirely possible that Scott was asked to make that post by the diamond industry, even though he did not indicate that it was an ad and some question if he is in violation of FCC regulations.

Some fans put Scott on blast for ridiculing people who aren’t millionaires. He posted that photo from a private jet.

“A lot of us regular people might not have the means to buy real.”

Another sounded ready to pull out the guillotine.

“Another day and another celebrity showing how out of touch they are with the world. I think we normal people need to take back what the 1% have hoarded away from us for so long.”

But maybe — hear us out — Scott just has diamonds on his mind.

Because things seem to be getting increasingly serious with teenage girlfriend Sofia Richie.

Though he never married Kourtney, perhaps he is gearing up to propose to Sofia — who many say is clearly in love with him.

It is rumored that Scott wants to get Sofia pregnant, and while that has yet to be confirmed, their relationship seems very close.

It’s not impossible to imagine that he is thinking of dropping ot one knee and proposing to her.

if he does, we’re guessing that he’s going to opt for a “real” diamond.

Roseanne Barr Attacks Co-Star, Is So Not Sorry for Anything

In case it wasn’t obvious based on her Nazi costumes, racist insults and affection for Donald Trump, it ought to be obvious now:

Roseanne Barr is a terrible human being.

Because she said that former Barack Obama advisor Valerie Jarrett was what would happen if the “Muslim brotherhood [and] planet of the apes had a baby?”

Well, yes.

But also because Barr issued the phoniest apology of all-time shortly after writing this Tweet — and then issued an endless array of even phonier statements on social media early Wednesday morning.

In a barrage of Tweets that started out on the right note (“I just want to apologize to the hundreds of people,and wonderful writers and talented actors who lost their jobs on my show due to my stupid tweet.”), Barr ended up quoting a significant number of her defenders.

She went from acknowledging that ABC was right to cancel her sitcom…

… to saying ABC was a hypocrite for not punishing Joy Behar for referring to Christians as mentally ill.

Oh, and the comedian also claimed she wrote that “joke” about Jarrett because had been taking Ambien.

Now, Barr has continued her assault against anyone who thinks she’s racist by attacking someone with whom she worked closely on Roseanne.

After ABC announced it was pulling the plug on Season 11, Michael Fishman – who portrayed Barr’s son D.J. during the show’s original run and its 2018 reboot – Tweeted that he was “devastated” by the show getting canceled.

He also denounced his TV mom’s remarks via a lengthy and heartfelt message.

“Our cast, crew, writers, and production staff strived for inclusiveness, with numerous storylines designed to reflect inclusiveness,” Fishman wrote. “The words of one person do not exemplify the thinking of all involved.”

He continued:

I condemn these statements vehemently. They are reprehensible and intolerable, contradicting my beliefs and outlook on life and society. I have always lived and taught my children to be inclusive.

I believe our show strived to embrace different backgrounds and opinions, through open dialogue.

fisherman tweet

Roseanne read this thoughtful response to the situation and gave Fishman credit for having such a mature and well-reasoned take on the scandal

Just kidding.

She totally took him to task for it.

“I created the platform for that inclusivity and you know it. You throw me under the bus. nice!” replied Barr.

These are totally the words of someone who recognizes she made an inappropriate comment and is aware that she’s very much in the wrong here, huh?

roseanne attack

Elsewhere, Sara Gilbert, who played Roseanne’s daughter Darlene, also reacted on Twitter, saying that Barr’s comments were “abhorrent and do not reflect the beliefs of our cast and crew or anyone associated with our show.”

She added: “I am disappointed with her actions to say the least.”

“Wow! unreal,” Roseanne wrote in response to this stance.

At one point today, Barr even said she “feels bad” for President Trump because he is on the receiving end of hatred everyday.

It’s almost like he and Roseanne deserve it.

Finally, Sanofi, the pharmaceutical company behind Ambien, has also spoken out.

It had something to say after Roseanne Tweeted the following:

“Guys I did something unforgiveable so do not defend me. It was 2 in the morning and I was ambien tweeting-it was memorial day too-i went 2 far & do not want it defended-it was egregious Indefensible.

“I made a mistake I wish I hadn’t but…don’t defend it please.”

Wrote the makers of the sleeping pill to which Roseanne is referring to here:

People of all races, religions and nationalities work at Sanofi every day to improve the lives of people around the world.

While all pharmaceutical treatments have side effects, racism is not a known side effect of any Sanofi medication.

ambien tweet

And so it has come to this: Roseanne Barr is so awful, she has turned a pharmaceutical company into the good guy.

That’s impressive work right there.

Michelle Duggar Slammed By Fans: Does She Do ANYTHING Around the House?

Michelle Duggar is no stranger to parenting controversies.

In fact, it often seems that every decision made by the mother of 19 becomes a topic of intense scrutiny and heated debate amongst the the internet’s legion of obsessive Duggar fanatics.

This makes sense, of course, as were it not for questionable parenting, the world would have no idea who Michelle is.

Long before the Josh Duggar sex scandals made Michelle and husband Jim Bob the poster children for negligence, many questioned the wisdom of birthing enough children to form two competing baseball teams (with a spare to serve as umpire!).

No one is questioning Michelle and Jim Bob’s love for their children, but we think most parents would agree that it’s logistically impossible to properly care for 19 children.

That is, unless one has plenty of help.

Fortunately for Michelle, she has numerous assistants … and she hasn’t had to shell out a single dime for their services.

Michelle and Jim Bob say they rely on a “buddy system,” in which each of their children is assigned a younger sibling to help care for.

That’s problematic enough on its own, as the Duggar kids are often assigned complex child-rearing tasks at shockingly young ages.

But now, new evidence has suggested that Duggar children as young as 4 or 5 might be performing several hours of household chores each day (without even a small allowance as compensation).

On top of that, fans fear for the health and happiness of Jana Duggar, who has allegedly been discouraged from marrying and starting a family of her own so that she can assist her parents with raising their younger children.

At the center of this controversy, of course, is matriarch Michelle.

And questions about just how much work the 50-year-old does around the Duggar compound came to the forefront in the comments section of a recent Facebook photo:

“Making Chicken and Dumplings with Momma! Love time with my little girls!!” Michelle captioned the photo.

“Does [Michelle Duggar] ever really do anything? She’s always taking pictures and narrating but the kids are doing the work from a young age,” one fan commented on the photo.

“Have you not seen them sweeping and doing hard work at like 2 years old? Have you not seen the little 9-year-olds cooking dinner for 15+people?”

“The show has been on the air for how many seasons, and yet, not once has Michelle cooked a meal,” wrote another.

“It’s always the kids doing it while mom and dad sit around saying ‘I’m hungry where’s dinner’. It’s sad really. Chores are one thing but making a 1-year-old use a vacuum or mop that’s way bigger than them isn’t right.”

Michelle defended her hands-off approach to child-rearing in a recent interview with Parenting magazine.

“Everyone has jurisdictions, or chores, in our house,” Michelle said.

“We all have our areas where we are responsible … They all feel like they are a very important part of life, and that teaches responsibility.”

Fortunately for Michelle, it seems her “jurisdiction” consists primarily of documenting household activities on Facebook.

It’s a tough job, but … actually, no one has to do it,

Caitlyn Jenner: The Kardashians Don’t Want Anything to Do With Me!

Not everything this year has gone as Caitlyn Jenner had hoped.

True, she might be dating a hot blonde 21-year-old, but Cait has been thoroughly disappointed by Trump. And she’s also become estranged from various Kardashians — from her family.

Caitlyn is publicly lamenting that the Kardashians want her out of their lives.

Caitlyn Jenner spoke about her memoir, The Secrets of My Life, and its detrimental effect on her relationship with the Kardashians at the Cambridge Union on Monday night.

And this sounds pretty rough.

“It’s been a little bit tough over the past couple of years on the Kardashian side.”

Yeah, we’d say so. Especially since April, when the memoir was published.

“To be honest, I don’t talk to them anymore. Kim I haven’t talked to in a year.”

That tracks, more or less. Back in September, we learned that Caitlyn and Kim hadn’t spoken in 9 months.

(11 months is “a year,” for most intents and purposes)

“They don’t want me in their lives, they bashed me pretty badly.”

We saw quite a lot of that, with Caitlyn getting called insane by her own family on Keeping Up With The Kardashians over some of the things that were written in her book.

“It’s devastating when your kids do that. It really hurt.”

Remember, folks — Caitlyn fathered Kendall and Kylie, but she’s been Kim and Kourtney and Khloe and Rob’s dad for decades, too.

Caitlyn doesn’t feel that their responses are justified.

“I tried to be honest in my book — very fair and very nice. Unfortunately, they didn’t take it that way.”

Honesty is not always the best policy — particularly when writing a memoir about your very famous, still-living family members.

But Caitlyn emphasizes that the Kardashians were not the focus.

“In the book I express some opinions and got shut down. It was not about the Kardashians.”

Sure, but obviously people are going to latch onto Kardashian news.

“They were only mentioned on 20 pages.”

Do you know how much any one of us could upset people in our lives by telling 100% truthful stories about them in just 20 pages?

You could lose every friend and family member that you have with too much honesty.

You gotta have a filter, folks. Yes, even when writing a memoir. You don’t need to lie; you just need to edit.

But Caitlyn thinks that the Kardashians doing what they do — turning every circumstance into entertainment for their own professional and financial benefit — is to blame for the perception that Caitlyn’s book was negative towards them.

“They made it more about them on television. The book was about my life. That caused a lot of the separation between us.”

Like we said, they sure did talk about it on their show.

But when you speak negatively of your celebrity family members outside of, like, a therapist’s office, don’t expect for them to be super chill about it.

Caitlyn seems to be regarding her book, because it is a memoir, as some sort of sacrosanct confessional whose contents should be untouchable.

But … it’s a book, and the Kardashians are (mostly) real people with (arguably) real feelings.

It’s important for us to note that Caitlyn still gets along with some members of what’s considered the Kardashian clan.

Caitlyn is still close with Kylie. Cait appeared on Life of Kylie. and the two regularly hang out on Father’s Day.

Also, Caitlyn took her gal pal Sophia Hutchins to Kendall Jenner’s 22nd birthday party.

That was potentially a little awkward, since Cait’s “friend” is still only 21 and therefore younger than Kendall, but it shows that Caitlyn and Kendall are still getting along.

Still, it’s sad to see a family torn apart. We wonder if they’ll mend fences or just resign themselves to this estrangement.
