Kevin Wendt on Astrid Loch Breakup: Sorry, I’m the Worst!

After watching Ashley Iaconetti and Jared Haibon's engagement happen right in front of him, Kevin Wendt remained in Paradise … for a little while.

This week, he broke up with Astrid, catching her totally off guard. The two of them went home.

Now, they've both taken to social media to address the breakup and how fans have responded.

If you've already seen this week's Bachelor in Paradise recap, you know that Kevin Wendt totally blindsided Astrid Loch by breaking up with her.

The one thing that she had asked him to not do to her was to catch her off guard and embarrass her like that.

The two of them were about to get to do a fantasy date when Kevin got caught up in his feelings and confessed that there was something missing from their relationship.

He rambled about how their lifestyles are different and brought up bad experiences with fantasy dates in the past.

It … was not fun for him, it was less fun for Astrid, and it left Bachelor Nation viewers cringing.

Astrid and Kevin went home.

Now that the episode aired, Kevin is free to comment on it. And he's had all of the time since the breakup was filmed to reflect upon that moment.

"My own worst enemy," Kevin admits in the caption of a photo of him on the beach in front of the sunset. "Me."

He also shared another photo of him and Astrid, definitely no longer in paradise.

"Real life," he writes in the caption. "Real people."

"06.21.18," Astrid's own post on the subject begins.

"The longest day of the year," she writes. "And my favorite day in Mexico."

The photo beside this caption is of her with Kevin's head draped in her lap.

"I’ll never forget watching this sunset and feeling like the luckiest girl in the world," Astrid says.

Astrid concludes: "This is how I’ll always remember paradise."

Astrid also addressed her fans on Twitter.

"Love you all…" her tweet begins, addressing the outpouring of sympathy and emotional support that she had received from the Bachelor Nation.

"if you wanna make me feel better," she suggests. "Follow me in Instagram so I can at least make money on ads."

That is incredibly honest and a little funny. And, you know, she has a point.

Breakups are rough, but it sounds like she's going to be okay.

Some fans have been speculating that Ashley Iaconetti and Jared Haibon's proposal in Paradise may have weighed heavily upon Kevin's mind.

We're not suggesting that he broke up with Astrid to try to woo Ashley back, of course.

But seeing your fairly recent ex get engaged right in front of you can really make an impact.

(We all saw Kevin's face as he responded to that, right?)

Doubts can fester and insecurities can mount. We hope that Kevin's head and heart are in a better place now.

Kourtney Kardashian: Partying Non-Stop Following Younes Bendjima Breakup?

Depending on which source you believe, it’s been either three months or three weeks since Kourtney Kardashian and Younes Bendjima broke up.

Basically, it sounds like the couple was on and off all summer and finally called it quits for good sometime in August.

Whatever the case, these two are now officially dunzo.

We’ve heard the obligatory rumors of Kourtney and Younes getting back together, but the consensus among those who know them best seems to be that the relationship has run its course.

But just because both parties agree that its best if they move on without one another, that doesn’t mean the process has been easy.

In fact, insiders are now telling Radar Online that Kourtney has been relying on a number of unhealthy coping mechanisms to cope with her latest breakup.

And it seems family and friends are concerned that the mother of three may be endangering her life.

“Instead of focusing on her family like she should be, Kourtney is just partying non-stop,” a source tells the outlet.

The insider didn’t go into any detail regarding the nature of Kourt’s partying, but it seems the reality star has had a difficult time getting over the relationship, in large part due to her confused feelings toward Younes.

Sources say she suspects her ex of cheating on her and knows that the relationship was not healthy — but she still feels drawn to the young male model in a way that she finds difficult to define.

“Younes did her dirty on so many occasions and she knows it,” the source says.

“The fact that she still continues to hang out with him infuriates her sisters.”

But while Kourtney continues to seek closure by spending time with Younes, she’s reportedly well aware that getting back together with him would be a disastrous decision.

“She is torn between love and what she knows is right,” the insider claims.

“She is not thinking with a clear head right now.”

Unfortunately, it seems those closest to Kourtney are growing increasingly frustrated with her inability to definitively cut ties with Younes.

“She is just feeling really desperate right now and it does not look good on her,” says the source.

Sounds like Kourt’s carrying on the proud Kardashian tradition of being irresistibly drawn to awful men.

If anyone should understand, it’s her sisters.


Ben Affleck Confirms Breakup With Lindsay Shookus

Well, folks, it looks like everyone’s favorite SNL power couple has called it quits.

No, not Pete Davidson and Ariana Grande. No, not Colin Jost and Scarlett Johansson. Okay, maybe “everyone’s favorite” was a bit of an exaggeration …

Ben Affleck, Lindsay Shookus

There, that’s the one.

Yes, after just over a year of dating, Ben Affleck and Lindsay Shookus have broken up.

Rumblings of a split began over the weekend, when Affleck was spotted on a date with Shauna Sexton, a 22-year-old Playboy model.

And today, reps for the actor confirmed that he and Shookus have decided to go their separate ways.

Ben and Shookus

“They are still very amicable and have stayed friends,” a source tells E! News.

“They both tried to make it work, but the distance just proved to be too much for them right now,” the insider adds.

“Family comes first for them both.”

Yes, it’s the usual boilerplate nonsense, and as expected, it isn’t fooling anyone.

We all know what really happened here. 

And it’s exactly what we all predicted from the very start of this relationship:

Lindsay is a smart, successful career woman in her late thirties.

She has a child, and those who know her best hold her in high esteem, both as a mom and a TV producer.

She makes sense as a partner for a rich, divorced dad in his mid-forties.

Which is exactly why Ben had to kick her to the curb.

Look, on a long enough timeline, Affleck is eventually gonna Affleck.

He probably woke up one day and remembered that he’s Batman and could easily be banging Playboy models in their early twenties.

Then he went out and did exactly that — possibly getting hammered first in celebration of his newfound freedom.

We all know a guy like Ben:

He recognizes that he needs to change, and he makes occasional half-hearted attempts at progress, but those are quickly abandoned in favor of the behaviors that keep dragging him down.

We suppose it’s to his credit that he keeps trying, but maybe he should sort some things out by himself before he enters another serious relationship.

Poor Lindsay probably never knew that she was more attractive to Ben as an idea than as a person.


Kylie Jenner and Travis Scott Try to Bury Breakup Rumors with PDA Pic

In a little over a week, sweet baby Stormi Webster will turn 6 months old. Yes, really.

In the mean time, Kylie Jenner and Travis Scott just had their GQ cover, but they’re not limiting their PDA to magazines. They’re also cozying up on social media.

After rumors of the two breaking up after a massive fight, this may be an effort to silence those stories.

Kylie Jenner used her social media savvy to build her brand — and an (almost) billion-dollar makeup empire.

But Travis Scott is no stranger to social media. He even still uses Snapchat!

And it was on Snapchat that the rapper shared a cuddly PDA photo of him with Kylie.

The black-and-white photo is simply captioned “first ferdi.”

While Ferdi can be short for Ferdinand, in this context, it is simply slang for “a very cute-ass boy.” We’re not joking.

Kylie Jenner Cuddles with Travis Scott on Snapchat

Recently, Kylie and Travis were reportedly in a heated argument.

It was said to have started while the two were having dinner, with the young couple leaving dinner in a huff after only 45 minutes.

According to eyewitnesses, the situation seemed to have deteriorated further once they returned to the hotel room, because Travis apparently left the hotel room in a hurry.

In fact, it was even speculated that Kylie had kicked Travis out for the night, but that was purely speculation.

A lot of people have felt that the couple who conceived just weeks after they began dating and whom many believe are only together because of Stormi are just not a great match.

So, are they trying (and failing) to make it work just to remain together for Stormi’s sake?

As part of her interview for their recent GQ cover, Kylie wrote that it is “normal” for them to get “in a little fight” from time to time

“When we fight, it’s usually just because we’ve been away from each other for too long and we didn’t see each other for, like, two weeks,” Kylie explains.

That sounds pretty toxic. Isn’t absence supposed to make the heart grow fonder?

“And we have Stormi now,” Kylie says. “And I can’t travel with her. She’s too young. So it’s harder to see each other.”

So, usually, Kylie stays at home with Stormi while Travis goes on tour to rap, and apparently to do his best DoodleBob impression.

If this very normal dynamic between the two of them is really causing them to fight, then it probably speaks to deeper, underlying issues, right?

We don’t know what these arguments are about on the surface.

But couples who argue a lot — and we cannot stress enough that, no matter what you saw or heard on teen dramas, that is not healthy — tend to have unspoken reasons for disagreements.

Maybe it’s just Kylie missing Travis or vice-versa.

Or maybe it’s Kylie resenting that her life has been totally transformed while Travis goes on tour whenever he wants to.

Kylie continues to avoid showing her baby’s face in order to punish fans who made up rumors about her having a different baby daddy.

Being a celebrity and a parent can lead to a lot of difficult choices, including how much exposure — if any — a baby should receive.

But Kylie and Travis may feel, as many fans believe, that they are obligated to stay together for Stormi’s sake.

Being a parent comes with a host of obligations, but staying in a toxic relationship is not one of them.

Sure, this sweet, cuddly photo that they shared might mean that they’ve made nice … but, realistically, how long is that going to last?


Miley Cyrus-Liam Hemsworth Breakup Rumors Swirl Amidst Instagram Drama

If you love Miley Cyrus to the point that you follow all the social media fan pages devoted to all the latest gossip on the singer’s personal life, then you may have caught wind of a startling rumor over the weekend.

Several such outlets breathlessly exclaimed that Miley and Liam Hemsworth have broken up yet again.

And this time, they claimed, their source was not some bogus insider, but Miley herself, who seemed to have broken the news on her Instagram page.

If you read beyond the headlines, however, you may have found that while Cyrus has engaged in some very unusual activity on social media recently, it would require quite a leap in logic to conclude that she’s trying to send a low-key message about her love life.

Yes, Miley deleted every photo of Liam Hemsworth from her Instagram page.

But she also deleted all other content from her account and changed her profile pic to a plain black background.

Miley also blacked out her Twitter avatar, but she did not delete her tweets.

Obviously, it’s not hard to see why some fans would take this is a sign that something is amiss in Miley’s personal life.

But in all likelihood, the move has more to do with her professional life.

It appears that Miley is participating in a recent and somewhat annoying trend in self-promotion.

You see, lately, celebs have been drumming up interest in upcoming projects not by teasing their new work with tweets and Instagram pics, but by deleting (or archiving) all of the content on their pages.

Taylor Swift and Zayn Malik have both taken that approach to drumming up interest in upcoming releases.

Back in April, rumors of Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds getting divorced began to circulate non-stop as a result of Blake’s decision to remove all content from her Instagram page and unfollow her husband.

It was later revealed that Blake did all this to promote the release of her upcoming film A Simple Favor.

Miley Cyrus: Blank IG

(Side note: that movie still hasn’t come out yet, so we’re thinking Blake jumped the gun a bit in terms of promotional stunts.)

Not surprisingly, Miley fans are losing their minds trying to figure out what’s next for the eccentric songstress:

“The fact that she’s [deleting] all her 2013-14 posts already and is still deleting is HUGE. We are getting a proper era? Building hype?” one Cyrus enthusiast tweeted.

Yes, the world of mainstream pop music stans is a fascinating one.

Only in 2018 could a 25-year-old artist with only 5 non-Disney studio albums to her name be credited as the architect of multiple musical “eras.”

But hey, you’ve gotta hand it to her — if Miley’s goal was to drum up interest in her new music, mission accomplished!


Amy Roloff Breaks Silence on Chris Marek Breakup Rumors

A couple of weeks ago, Little People, Big World star Amy Roloff actually defended her ex-husband, Matt Roloff. Things between the two of them seemed better.

But ever since boyfriend Chris Marek was conspicuously absent from her Fourth of July photos, fans have worried that things between Amy and her love are worse.

Fortunately, Amy has found a gentle way to lay those rumors to rest.

“This guy!” Amy Roloff writes under this cozy photo of her with Chris, quashing breakup rumors without ever having to acknowledge them.

Amy’s post continues, as she gushes: “What a fun time at his family reunion picnic yesterday!”

Attending a family reunion with someone is usually a big deal — if you’re both adults, anyway. It’s like a magnified version of introducing someone to your parents.

“Yes they loved my Oregon Bounty,” Amy writes. “Marion Berry loaf and Hazelnut cookies and Lemon cookies from Amy Roloff’s Little Kitchen.”

If you don’t love Amy Roloff at her shameless product placement on social media, you don’t deserve her the rest of the time.

“Woohoo!” Amy says. “I was excited about that and being with him.”

“So excited for you,” one fan commented. “You found a very nice person. Your family is awesome.”

“So cute what a great couple!” another fan exclaimed. “You guys look great!”

Someone else decided to ask an impertinent question, writing: “Will you guys get married?”

Don’t be pushy, folks.

“Love the fact that ure much happier now. Best of luck. Been watching the series for years,” another fan commented.

Some fans also wrote to Amy that her description of the food that she brought to his reunion really sounded appetizing.

Amy has international fans, and some asked if her products were available in the UK or in Australia. We’re sure that she was heartened to see these messages.

Others offered some unsolicited advice on how Amy should get along with Matt and let go of her anger.

That’s all fine and well … if she asks for your opinion. If you’re not her friend or her therapist, what business do you have giving her life advice?

It seems that, no matter what Amy does, some commenters will never be satisfied.

Just because two people are dating doesn’t mean that they have to attend every single event together or be in every photo together.

For reference, see: what your parents told you when you wanted to bring a date on your family vacation in high school.

So Chirs didn’t have to appear in pics with Amy on Independence Day. That doesn’t mean that he doesn’t love Amy — or America.

If Amy had addressed the rumors, that would have seemed confrontational to fans — and might have seemed to lend legitimacy to them.

Instead, Amy just found a way to shut them down without addressing them.

And she included a little product integration in the process.

Fans are happy to see Amy with Chris for a lot of reasons — and some of them just didn’t like Matt. Or, at least, they didn’t like the way that he treated her.

We all recently saw Matt portray Amy as being dumb, so that kind of insulting behavior is fresh on the minds of fans.

Of course, there are also some trolls who like to give Amy a hard time about her relationshipw ith Chris.

They seem to be “convinced” that Chris is just using Amy for fame.

The reality is probably that these trolls are suspicious of a man who would date a little person because they are projecting their own bigotry onto him.

We’re glad to hear that Amy and Chris had a good time at the reunion.


Chris Hardwick and Chloe Dykstra Texts Show She Wanted to Reconcile After Breakup

Chris Hardwick severed ties with Chloe Dykstra in a lengthy text chronicling major issues in their relationship, and she pleaded to talk to him afterward to no avail … even months later. According to the text messages — obtained by TMZ — Chris…
