Kailyn Lowry Puts One Baby Daddy on Blast

Kailyn Lowry would love to fall madly and deeply in love again.

She would even love to have another child at some point in the future.

But the veteran Teen Mom star knows that neither of these developments is guaranteed.

She actually doubts either are very likely, considering all she's been through with three different men.

In the interview below, conducted between Kailyn and Us Weekly, Lowry delves into detail about all of her baby daddies; reveals which she would want to procreate with again; and peers into what she fears could be a lonely future.

See what she has to say now…

1. Three Men. Three Kids. Quite a History.

Stars Blast Cartoonist for “Racist, Sexist” Depiction of Serena Williams

Serena Williams may not have another U.S. Open title to add to her trophy case at home.

But the greatest tennis player in women’s history has the support of many celebrities in Hollywood, that’s for certain.

Allow us to explain…

Serena Williams yells

On Saturday evening, Williams fell in the final round of the U.S. Open, losing in two sets to Naomi Osaka.

But the match was very unfortunately marred by three penalties assessed to Serena in that final set by chair umpire Carlos Ramos.

First, he warned Serena about being actively coached by her coach, who was sitting in Williams’ official box in the stands.

Then, he rewarded a point to Osaka after Serena smashed her racquet in frustration.

Finally, he rewarded an entire game to Osaka after Serena told Ramos – while sitting in her seat on the sideline, in between games – that he was a “thief” for taking away the aforementioned point.

This was an unprecendented move by a chair umpire in a Grand Slam Final.

It led to a lot of outrage online.

There were those who believe Serena did NOT deserve such a harsh punishment, along with those who felt terrible on behalf of Osaka, whose first-ever major tournament victory has been overshadowed by this controversy.

And there were those who thought Serena acted inappropriately and immaturely and deserved to be docked that game.

It’s safe to say that cartoon Mark Knight falls into this second camp.

racist cartoon

The artist posted to Twitter on Monday a drawing he made that appeared in the Australian newspaper The Herald Sun.

It depicts the 36-year-old tennis star as an angry baby jumping all over her tennis racquet — and it has prompted quite a string of responses by quite a number of celebrities.

“Well done on reducing one of the greatest sportswomen alive to racist and sexist tropes and turning a second great sportswoman into a faceless prop,” J.K. Rowling Tweeted, for example.

Added actress Cynthia Erivo:

“This reprehensible and racist. It also warps the actual event and misses the point of what actually happened @Knightcartoons.

“You should be ashamed of yourself. Yet another white guy disrespecting a black woman because you still don’t see us as multi dimensional human beings.”

Erivo tweet

It certainly is fair to ask at least one question, no matter where you stand on Serena’s recent actions:

Why is Serena’s opponent in this cartoon white and blonde?

Why has Knight chosen to contrast Williams with someone that comes across thos way?

Osaka is of Haitian and Japanese descent.

It’s therefore difficult to read into Knight’s above depiction as anything but, yes, racist.

“Hey @Knightcartoons just change your name to KKK Cartoons … Racist piece of s—t!” wrote Kathy Griffin.

Considering how often male players smash their racquets and how loudly they berate umpires without repercussion, many supporters of both Serena and humanity in general believe Ramos acted out of a sexist impuluses on Saturday.

“Women are treated differently in most arenas of life,” wrote former tenns champion Billie Jean King in an op-ed in The Washington Post, adding:

“This is especially true for women of color. And what played out on the court yesterday happens far too often.”

We tend to agree.

But even if you don’t, can we all agree that this cartoon is disgusting?

Christina Aguilera Puts The Voice on Major Blast… Again

For the second time in just a few weeks, Christina Aguilera has talked dirty (or should we say… dirrty?) about her time on The Voice.

Earlier this month, the pop star compared working on this singing competition to being on a “hamster wheel,” said the experience was an “energy suck” and said she was “was longing for freedom.”

Harsh, huh?

And yet, Aguilera was apparently only just getting started.

Speaking to W Magazine, Aguilera doubled and tripled down on these remarks, laying even harder into The Voice.

“I signed on to a show where the blind audition element was something interesting, something genuine,” said the singer. “After a while, though, you start to see that everyone is good-looking.”

Aguilera served as a coach from 2011 through 2016.

That’s a long time.

She could have left early on if she really felt like the program was overly focused on the appearance of its contestants,but she stuck around… and has only chosen all these years later to saddle up on a very high horse.

“It wasn’t a comfortable place for me to be, where I’m just part of a money-making machine,” she tells W, adding:

“When I stop believing in something, then it’s like, ‘What am I doing here?’

“I think I did choose to, no pun intended, take a chair for so long and do something very commercial for my little ones.

“But at a certain point I felt like I’m not even doing them a service by cheating myself and what I’m here to do. They should be seeing mommy live her best life.”

Yes, this is absolutely true.

If Aguilera felt as if she was setting a poor example for her kids, then she should definitely have walked away.

We’re just wondering what she expected from the reality series. Of course it’s a “money-making machine.” It’s a television show that has to make said money in order to survive.

There are certainly worse ways to sell out than to be a coach on The Voice.

“I found myself in that place where I’m being told what to do, what’s going to be acceptable or unacceptable, what’s okay or not okay,” she said of her run in a red chair.

“It’s like, God, you know, I’m a mother of two now. The genie is out of the bottle.”

All of this said, Aguilera very much wants to put one rumor to rest:

No, she did not depart The Voice due to the romance between Blake Shelton and Gwen Stefani.

That’s just plain old malarkey.

“It never had anything to do with any one person at all. And I actually think it’s really cute Blake and Gwen found love in that chaotic environment,” she says now, going down a different feminism path and adding:

“I fought for a long time to get two females in the chairs. And, for a long time, I was just told it wasn’t the demographic.

“But just know that I was a fighter behind the scenes.”

In closing, because all celebrities are now obligated to talk about Kanye West, Christina was asked about the controversial rapper.

(Aguilera did collaborate with Kanye on two upcoming songs, so this topic wasn’t completely random.)

“Kanye, you know, he says things,” Aguilera replied, stating the VERY obvious and adding:

“His mind works in mysterious ways. I’ll just say that. I’ve always been a fan of his music….

“If anything, he gives with his gut. You get the sense, though, that there’s a good guy there. Sometimes we’re all just a little misunderstood.”

The Bachelor Alums Blast Arie, ABC for Cruel Becca Break-Up

By now, you must have heard:

On the season finale of The Bachelor, Arie Luyendyk Jr. got down on one knee and proposed to Becca Kurfin.

He then realized that he still had feelings for runner-up Lauren Burnham… so he invited Becca over to his house and shattered her heart into a million tiny pieces – in front of ABC cameras, no less!

And while Kurfin claims she's forgiven Arie for his actions, past mainstays from this beloved franchise can't believe Arie would do her like that on national television.

Scroll down for a look at the reactions of some very familiar names. Do you agree with their assessment?

1. Oh, Arie

Arie on the finale
The 22nd Bachelor in show history admits he made a huge “mistake” in the way he handled the Becca break-up, but that doesn’t change the fact that it happened. He ended their engagement in front of millions of viewers!

2. She Can Relate

Ry tweet
Melissa Rycroft was watching the finale when it happened. If you recall, she was dumped on the After the Rose special by Jason Mesnick, who then asked out runner-up Molly Malaney.

3. And Speaking of Molly…

Molstweet
Yup, she was watching as well. And she wasn’t a fan of how this was handled.

4. And Then Speaking of Jason…

Mestweet
Wait, what? Maybe he didn’t want it filmed deep down inside, but he obviously agreed to it and, you know, did actually break up with Becca on camera.

5. They Also Did It for Ratings

Mestweet2
But we agree. No way Becca isn’t announced as The Bachelorette, right?!?

6. Spoken from Experience

Lowetweet
Lowe is the only Bachelor in history to actually marry the woman he proposed to on the show. This is a man who knows the love business.

Kylie Jenner: Put on BLAST for Ridiculously Expensive Brush Set

Here’s some free advice for Kylie Jenner:

You may want to hurry up and announce your pregnancy to the world.

It will serve as a distraction to another announcement you recently made, one that is not being met with positive reviews from your fans.

Late this week, Jenner’s shockingly successful makeup business alerted the public to a brand new 16-piece brush set that is now on sale.

This Kylie Cosmetic kit – which features a number of sleek-looking brushes – is the third product in the Silver Series set from the popular brand… and is being offered for $ 360.

Yes, $ 360. For a bunch of brushes.

In response to this hilarious/ridiculous figure, fashion blog publisher and fans jumped on social to express their disappointment over the price, prompting Kylie to respond with a tweet of her own on Saturday.

It reads:

“I have developed for you guys the most amazing luxury brushes ever. I am very excited! Real brushes don’t compare to synthetic brushes.

“Different performance/quality/everything. I am 100% down to do an entire synthetic line in the future which will ultimately be cheaper.”

She added:

“I always fight for the lowest price on all my products. Here are some other real brush lines for reference…”

brush prices

And she’s right: there’s one set in the above-referenced collection that retails for $ 650.

Jenner went on to acknowledge the criticism, telling followers: 

“I hear you guys, love you guys and truly just want the best.”

Whatever Kylie is doing at her company, it’s clearly working.

A somewhat recent report valued Kylie Cosmetics at $ 1 billion, which is just… it’s totally and completely and utterly insane.

What started as a simple lip gloss kit has blossomed, in just a couple of years, into a global empire.

Still, that doesn’t mean everyone was satisfied with Kylie’s explanation or the price of these brushes.

“Thanks but I’ll buy food with that money instead,” wrote one Internet user, while another added:

“Sorry girl but that’s just waaaay to expensive! There are so many other brands that make quality brushes for affordable prices.”

Others said they were worried about with whether or not the brushes were cruelty-free and asked what type of hair was used in the brushes.

kritisicm

This is serious business, apparently, this makeup stuff.

Women do NOT mess around when it comes to their products.

And despite its financial success, Kylie Cosmetics has not received high grades from the Better Business Bureau.

“All I’m saying is if you wanna charge luxury prices, provide luxury quality,” wrote one critic.

It’s hard to argue with that point, isn’t it?

Matt Rolff Flaunts Romance with Caryn Chandler, Gets Put on Blast

Matt Roloff and Amy Roloff have been divorced for 18 months now.

And they’ve been separated for even longer than that.

Still, however, neither have of this former couple has been able to fully move on without fans of Little People, Big World expressing their irritated two cents.

Heck, sometimes it’s even two or three cents.

We’ve seen this many times over the past few months when it comes to Amy and her relationship with Chris Marek.

Remember when she was dragged for going on vacation with Marek because their trip coincided with Audrey Roloff’s due date?

Just three weeks ago, meanwhile, Amy had to defend Marek against a bunch of Internet haters, actually kind of insulting her own reality series in the process.

“Try not to make quick assumptions about anyone from what you see on an edited show,” she told critics.

Now, Matt is the one feeling the burn of the World Wide Web.

In light of this holiday season, along with his successful relationship with Caryn Chandler, Matt shared the photo above on Instagram and included with it the following caption:

I want to stop and take some time out to wish you all a Happy Holiday season.

No matter where you are, I hope you appreciate the little things and special time with your loved ones.

Caryn gave me the okay to post this photo we have from dinner last night here in Arizona..

I’ve had a great few days here full of sunshine and R&R but I sure can’t wait to see those grand babies of mine tomorrow.

Love Love to You All!

Matt rarely takes this step.

He rarely flaunts his romance with Chandler, possibly because he knows there’s some controversy behind it.

See, Caryn worked as the Roloff Farm Manager for awhile.

She has been close to the family for a long time and she knows Amy pretty well.

So it’s understandable why Matt’s relationship with her would be frowned upon a bit… and that’s before we even get to the way Chandler has allegedly treated Amy.

Caryn supposedly snubbed Amy while organizing a birthday party for her boyfriend last month.

This has reportedly led to tension between the exes, as you can learn more about below:

It has also led to a divided fan base.

There’s a segment of Little People, Big World viewers who feel a need to take sides between Amy and Matt, even if the former spouses appear to get along just fine.

“I am team Amy. Matt seems to be a bully in a relationship,” wrote one critic, seemingly out of nowhere.

This person added: “I think it’s time for the family to get real jobs. Not reality TV.”

Another took one look at the picture of Matt and Caryn and just wrote: “Disgusting!!!!!”

Some fans, meanwhile, wondered whether Chandler is in the relationship for the right reasons.

“Her official title is farm manager,” one follower speculated. “She knows everything, including financials. I do hope, for his sake and his heart, that she’s sincere.”

Wow.

Can’t say we even thought about that sort of scenario before.

Thankfully, not everyone on the Internet is a conspiracy theorist.

We’ll let this level-headed individual speak for us with her take on the Roloffs:

Everyone has their own battle in life. If things [don’t] work out in one marriage … choose to move on and be happy with someone else, or just lay around and pout …

In Matt and Amy’s case, they were no compromising in salvaging the relationship. So they both chose to move on with someone else.

The Voice Recap: A Blast From the Past

The penultimate blind auditions found everyone fighting it out for the last few spots on each of the teams.

There were some big arguments as the coaches vied for that person who would secure them a piece of victory pie. There was even one contestant who worked with a former one. 

Let’s break down the performances from the ones who made it to the Battle Rounds. 

Chloe Kohanski (23 – Juliet, Tennessee) “The Chain” by Fleetwood Mac

Chloe had a lot of similarities to Miley Cyrus, so from the get-go, we wanted her to end up with former Disney princess. Jennifer Hudson wanted Chloe and was ready to fight with Miley for her. 

Not physically, of course, but with a war of words. It was embarrassing, but it showed just how Chloe managed to impress everyone throughout her performance. 

She went with Team Miley. 

Dennis Drummond (27 – Nashville, Tennessee) “She Talks to Angels” by The Black Crowes

Fun fact: Dennis plays backup guitar for Adam Wakefield, whom Blake previously coached on the show. Now, Dennis is ready to branch out and start his solo path. 

His vocal ability was there, and it resulted in Adam and Blake duking it out for who would get to have the pleasure of taking Dennis to the Battle Rounds. 

In the end, he stuck with who he knew had a proven track record, and that was Blake. 

Ignatius Carmouche (22 – Opelousas, Louisiana) “Latch” by Sam Smith

Ignatius started slow, but his performance gathered steam towards the end, and that resulted in a swiveling chair turns from both Jennifer and Blake. 

Adam apparently gave him tips before he appeared on the show, but that did not mean Adam was ready to commit to coaching him. 

Jennifer took the win with this one. 

Rebecca Brunner (22 – Mason, Michigan) “Believer” by Imagine Dragon

Rebecca had one of the best performance of the night, and could only muster a one-chair turn. What a travesty, but at least she got one. 

We’re not entirely sold on Blake being the one to nurture her talent, but stranger things have happened. This could be one of the winners right here. 

Brandon Brown (19 – Bronx, New York) “Georgia on My Mind” by Ray Charles

It sucks when a decent singer opts for a boring song, and that’s exactly what happened here. Everything about his performance was hindered by the song. 

His voice did sound similar to Adam’s so that probably explains why they are working together. Work on those song choices, Adam. 

Whitney Fenimore (28 – Tulsa, Oklahoma) “Hold on We’re Going Home” by Drake ft. Majid Jordan

Turning a Drake song into something that sounds country should be given a standing ovation. Like, the rendition sounded awesome, and we cannot wait to see what’s next for her. 

Adam was reminded of Christina Grimmie and snapped her up for his team. 

Illiana Viramontes (18 – Brentwood, California) “New Soul” by Yael Naim

We were not sold by this first performance. It was all over the place, and the song was wrong. There were better people who did not get through, but Miley seems to be letting some people float on through. 

Will she be able to turn this contestant into a success story? We’re not so sure. 

Meagan McNeal (31 – Chicago, Illinois) “Can’t Feel My Face” by The Weeknd

Jennifer was the sole coach to turn around for Meagan, and we actually think this was for the best. Meagan had solid vocals, and that was backed up by charisma. 

Jennifer got her by default, and we are glad about it. 

Jon Mero (31 – Atlanta, Georgia) “Versace on the Floor” by Bruno Mars

Jon’s versatile voice caught the attention of the coaches, and they all seemed like they wanted to steal him. His voice was the best of the night, but he ultimately chose Team Adam. 

Okay, what did you think of the people who got through?

Kailyn Lowry and Chelsea Houska Put MTV on BLAST: Stop with the Editing!

For a while now, it’s seemed like complaining about MTV has become a favorite pastime for each and every Teen Mom cast member.

Which is weird, considering that MTV is paying this girls hundreds of thousands of dollars to just live their senselessly dramatic lives.

We’ve seen Farrah Abraham lose her mind at producers because her contract stated she couldn’t do certain other gigs and she disagreed with it (after signing it).

We’ve seen Jenelle Evans insist that editors make her look bad, when really we know that it’s Jenelle that makes herself look bad.

Really, most of the moms’ issues come down to editing — either they feel like they’re portrayed in a negative way, or their scenes get spliced together for the sake of a juicy storyline.

And this week, both Kailyn Lowry and Chelsea Houska are taking issue with the latest episode of Teen Mom 2.

Chelsea started the conversation — so far on the show, her storyline has mostly been about welcoming little baby Watson and the adjustment it’s been for the family.

Aubree in particular has had a rough time getting used to the new addition, which makes sense. After all, she’d been Chelsea’s only child for a long, long time.

But at one point during the episode, she made a comment about the situation which seemed a little odd.

And, as she explained on Twitter, the comment wasn’t about that situation at all.

“Just a little something that irked me about the show tonight,” she tweeted. “There’s a part where I say ‘I feel like it’s taking away from Cole’s experience.'”

“And that was taken out of context from a different convo and added in that scene for some reason.”

She added the hashtag “Reality TV probs,” because hey, what can you do?

Not much, she clarified — when someone asked if they got to approve episodes before they air, she answered “Helllllll no lol that would be amazing if we could haha.”

Kailyn replied to Chelsea’s tweet about taking lines of context, saying that MTV did just that several times throughout the episode.

She even said that they “provoked the scene with Isaac crying at dinner!!! And I lost my mind!!!”

She also wrote “Let’s talk about how bad the timeline is off tonight. Peep the wall paint and how it flips from mint to yellow back to mind.”

If this is true — and honestly with something as noticeable as the paint on the wall, it’s easy to believe the rest of their claims — it’s pretty sad.

Especially the thought of provoking sweet little Isaac into crying over Kailyn and Javi’s divorce over dinner.

But then again, these ladies have to realize that MTV is running a business, and they know what will attract viewers to the show.

Lots and lots of drama, if you weren’t aware.

If they don’t care for it, they have the option of quitting, but if the income is too important to them, it looks like they’re just going to have to deal with it.
