Kristin Cavallari is talking about her family again, though we bear the heartbreaking news that she is not posting more nude photos of Jay Cutler. Sorry.
This time, she’s talking about her three young children.
Fans had worried that she was starving them on some insane Hollywood diet. She’s shutting down those mom-shaming rumors.
Last month, Kristin came out with her very own cookbook.
The title, whose length alone was an act of almost unparalleled hubris, is: True Roots: A Mindful Kitchen with More Than 100 Recipes Free of Gluten, Dairy, and Refined Sugar.
There’s a lot to unpackage with that extensive title.
Obviously, some of the response had to do with the fact that so many people who avoid gluten do so due to pseudoscience rather than because of a genuine allergy to the gluten protein.
But others were concerned, because Kristin is a parent.
Together with Jay Cutler, she has three children: 5-year-old Camden Jack, 4-year-old Jackson Wyatt, and 2-year-old daughter Saylor James.
Fans worried that she was feeding them foods missing these often essential components, and perhaps subjecting them to an unhealthy strict diet.
Speaking to People, Kristin Cavallari says that there is no need for concern and even less need for mom-shaming.
“How I eat, I cook at home, and that’s what they eat.”
That is often how families work.
But you don’t need to worry that their kids are trapped in some tower somewhere, being fed only artisanal, organic acai or whatever.
As she explains, their kids also eat normal food that humans eat.
She gives an example of the kids eating normal food.
“But we go out to breakfast every weekend.”
That sounds very nice, actually.
“They get doughnuts every weekend.”
Ooooh, that sounds great. (Anyone else just remember that they haven’t had a doughnut since 2016?)
Kristin continues, dismissing the idea that she’s one of those moms who is going out of her way to impose her own bonkers dietary restrictions upon her children.
“It’s not like they’re on some stupid diet.”
There’s the Kristin Cavallari whom fans grew to know and love on Laguna Beach: The Real Orange County and on The Hills.
She highlights the absurdity of that idea.
They sure are.
Kristin goes on to explain that, though she is clearing the air about things, she doens’t really care what people think.
“Getting backlash about anything I’m doing when it comes to parenting, I really don’t give a s–t about.”
That can be a great attitude or a terrible one, depending upon one’s parenting.
She explains why she is so dismissive of outside opinions.
“Because I’m so confident at what I’m doing as a mom that I don’t care.”
You know what? Considering that all that she’s doing is cooking with a few dietary restrictions at home, that attitude sounds just fine.
It’s especially good to hear that her kids are enjoying doughnuts.
Children can really appreciate doughnuts in a way that adults cannot. Once you hit your mid twenties, you can’t eat more than a few in a day. A kid can wolf down seven and experience true happiness.
Though we somehow doubt that Kristin and Jay are going quite that far on the weekends. Which is probably for the best.
While Paris Jackson's fans have been thrilled to see her locking lips with Cara Delevingne and generally living her best life, some people have been worried.
In fact, a report came out claiming that Paris' own family fears that her behavior is putting her in danger and even that her premature death is imminent.
Now Paris has recorded a video, and she's clapping back at her own family members.
So, remember that time that Paris Jackson nearly plummeted to her death?
We pointed out that she was careful to very deliberately not fall from the roof, but apparently the image of that video, which Paris herself elected to share, is haunting her loved ones.
Page Six reports that Paris Jackson's family fears for her life.
They even compare her near-tragedy to the time that Michael Jackson dangled baby Blanket from a window.
"But this is worse than that because I still think Michael had control of Blanket and they weren’t nearly as high up as Paris is in this video."
Even though Paris was totally okay, it has people worried that she's in a self-destructive spiral. Some might say that she's just … 20.
"She’s lost it. She really has."
The relative goes on to say:
"Everyone saw that video, and even though we all knew that she’s now OK, watching it was so traumatic that nobody wants to show it to either Katherine or Joe."
Well, not all celebrities look at stories about themselves.
And even the stars who do look into what people are saying about them don't always comment on it publicly.
But Paris Jackson saw it. (She even reveals, in the video, how she saw it)
"So apparently people think I’m about to die."
She states that pretty matter-of-factly in this video, which was recorded while she was in a car with a friend.
"My therapist texted me about it laughing though, so that’s good."
We're glad that she has such a good relationship with her therapist.
Paris continued in a second video (also below), saying:
"So I guess to the family members that are talking to all of these news outlets saying they’re worried for me:"
And she has a serious question for family members who would rather be a source than speak to their own relative.
"When is the last time you called me?"
Oh. That's a good question.
Paris isn't done.
And she even has an example of someone who knows her well enough to not be concerned.
"Prince isn’t worried. Why? Because we talk all the time. We hang out."
By Prince, she of course means Prince Jackson, her brother.
"If you’re worried about me, call me."
That sounds like good advice.
There's no telling whether or not someone will take her up on that.
For one thing … no one wants to admit to having been the source that spoke out.
Paris Jackson is a sweetheart and she's just a very nice person. She's an environmentalist and she's deeply spiritual.
On top of being a very free spirit, she is 20 years old. Those of us who are risk-averse may cringe at the idea of getting anywhere close to a rooftop's edge, but Paris was careful. She trusts herself.
It seems a little much to blow one incident out of proportion … especially behind Paris' back like that.
That's not how families are supposed to treat each other, right?
As always, we wish Paris the best.
Hear her speak in her own words:
It seems like just yesterday that April Love Geary first showed off her baby bump. But it was half a year ago, and she and Robin Thicke have welcomed the birth of their baby.
Now, she’s shared a photo of her sweetly nursing baby Mia … only to get blasted for showing the “indecent” image.
But she’s clapping back at her mom-shamers … and she’s pulling out the receipts.
In February, April Love gave birth to Mia Love Thicke, an adorable baby.
Like other babies and also all humans, Mia needs sustenance in order to survive. As is often the case, that comes in the form of breast milk.
So it should be no surprise that April Love breastfeeds her precious baby.
Like a number of celebrities — and even ordinary moms — she is sharing this photo to help normalize breastfeeding, as moms are still shamed for feeding their children.
She shared this photo, taken by her fiance, Robin Thicke.
This is a great photo!
Not only is this picture sweet and entirely non-sexual, but she’s even censored her exposed nipple in order to meet Instagram’s dainty standards.
(As we all know, Instagram has a delicate constitution and simply cannot handle the sight of the forbidden Lady Nipples)
Her caption was short and sweet, as she wrote:
“MOM pic by baby daddy Robin Thicke.”
As you can imagine, though, there was some unfortunate backlash.
A British television personality who starred on Big Brother as a teenager was among April Love’s critics, and posted as much in a series of tweets.
“I’m all for breastfeeding and having a choice how to feed your baby but WHY do people feel the need to post pictures of themselves doing it?!”
To her credit, she went ahead and made it clear that she was talking about April Love.
“Especially the new pic of Robin Thicke’s gf! She’s got hair done, makeup on, both boobs out. So strange. What’s the need??”
Wed’ wager that her hair and makeup are done because she’s, get this, taking a photo.
As for the both boobs out conspiracy, we’re no experts, but it appears to be because she’s not wearing a shirt.
She continues, indicating that she’s not trying to advocate for women hiding themselves when they feed their babies.
“I don’t think it should be done discreetly. I pumped breastmilk publicly ALOT when I had Frankie and Blakely.”
She’s hung up on the photos.
“I just don’t understand the reason behind posting pics. That’s all. Not hating or shaming I just don’t see why.”
People explained to her that the pictures are to help normalzie breastfeeding.
“Breast feeding doesn’t need normalizing. It’s been done (myself included) for YEARS. Why do we need to normalize something that was around before we all were? Lol it’s bizarre that we feel we need to do this”
She’s missing the point — it needs to be normalized because women are still harassed, asked to leave, or even threatened for breastfeeding their babies at some locations.
So celebs share photos to remind everyone that it’s no big deal.
April Love noticed the tweets, of course.
She posted her rebuttal on Instagram — and included some receipts.
“Hey @chanellehayes, maybe the next time you want to criticize me for posting a picture of myself breastfeeding you should really take a look at the pictures you’ve had taken.”
Hayes, of course, has worked as a model in what the British call “Lads” magazines. So, yes, she’s posed topless.
But April Love makes it clear that she’s not trying to shame Hayes. She just wants to point out that her stance doesn’t make sense.
“Not that taking nudes are wrong! The naked body is a beautiful thing! But don’t be a hypocrite mama.”
Honestly? April Love Geary is definitely Robin Thicke’s better half.
Ariel Winter is talented, successful, and beautiful. She is also, unfortunately, no stranger to random attacks by trolls who hope that their comments can ruin her night.
Fortunately, Ariel knows just how to stick it to her haters.
So when someone left a nasty comment about her appearance on her costar’s photo, she was ready to clap back.
This starts with a photo shared by Sarah Hyland, Ariel Winter’s costar.
The Modern Family cast took a few photos when they attended a For Your Consideration event.
Hyland expressed her enthusiasm under the group photo that she shared, writing:
“I love these people with all my heart. My family (well most of them) Here’s to a Season 10.”
That’s right, folks — Modern Family is about a decade old.
Unfortunately, one commenter decided to single out Ariel’s appearance.
“Why,” wrote a troll. “Does Ariel look so thirsty all the time?”
Though thirsty often means experiencing sexual attraction towards a specific person or wanting to hook up, it can also mean that someone looks desperate for fame and attention.
Either way … it is clearly not intended as a compliment towards the 20-year-old actress.
Plenty of stars wouldn’t see this, but it looks like Ariel saw her friend’s post and just happened to catch a glimpse of this rude comment.
Ariel being Ariel, she clapped back … and showed off her sense of humor.
“I’m SO thirsty!!! Haven’t had water in hours. God I can’t believe you can tell I’m dehydrated from this pic :/ :/.”
Sarcasm can be a great tool for shaming trolls in situations like this one.
(In other cases, you can use politely phrased, earnest questions)
The only sad thing is that Ariel had to clap back in the first place.
Even if you don’t watch Modern Family because you don’t have time or sitcoms aren’t your thing or whatever, the actors deserve respect. They’re human beings.
But this comes down to, yet again, people looking for any excuse to sexualize Ariel and then attempt to shame her for having the audacity to be attractive.
She was, as you can see in the photos above, wearing a normal black dress.
Even if she had been naked, she would still deserve respect, but it’s worth noting that she was dressed appropriately for the occasion.
So … what was thirsty about her?
We’re guessing that this troll noticed Ariel’s body’s curves and found her attractive.
Which doesn’t really have anything to do with Ariel, now does it?
That sounds like his problem.
But it isn’t Ariel Winter’s job to educate her haters or to make them have epiphanies that their misogynistic attacks are born of their own shortcomings.
Her job is to act on Modern Family.
Recently, she’s used social media to celebrate her anniversary with Levi Meaden and of course to praise his role in the new Pacific Rim film.
But her presence on social media is a privilege to her fans and followers and is not guaranteed.
One of these days, if these nasty trolls keep up their rudeness, Ariel may stop sharing sexy photos. In her case, that will mean that she’d just stop sharing pictures.
Nobody wants that. Just … be decent human beings when you leave comments, folks.

In the wake of being slammed for going back to rehab, Teen Mom OG star Catelynn Lowell is clapping back at her haters.
She’s being mom-shamed, wife-shamed, and plain ol’ shamed for “abandoning” her family. And she’s clapping back.
Take a look at her strong words — and at the hate to which she was responding.
Following the episode in which she explained the reason she was returning to rehab, Catelynn Lowell took to Twitter to put the haters on blast.
“All you ignorant people are the reason why mental health still has this huge stigma around it!”
The stigma surrounding mental health is devastating, though things are getting better as more and more people use social media to share what was once a private struggle.
She shares some hashtags that encourage people to learn more about mental health.
She wishes that people wouldn’t condemn her for going to rehab when they clearly do not know what they’re talking about.
“You have NO clue unless you have been through it yourself.”
In many ways, Catelynn feels exhasperated.
“Some of you people disgust me.”
She continues to correct the people who think that she was abandoning her family by going to rehab.
“I wasn’t ‘running away’ from my problems I was FIXING them!”
Yep. Seeking medical help when you need it is the right thing to do.
“Working HARD & getting on the right medication.”
Sometimes, that requires inpatient treatment.
“I wouldn’t wish this crap on my worst enemy!”
Mental illness is a terrible burden. The only good thing about it is that more people are speaking openly about their struggles.
“But I guess I’ll have haters no matter what! Just glad I got myself better and if ppl r mad then be mad I guess
Having haters — and ideally learning to accept them — goes with the territory of being a reality star, unfortunately.
Catelynn retweeted a few supportive tweets, including one that reads:
“I’ve done outpatient & inpatient treatment and sometimes outpatient just isn’t enough at that certain time! That’s nothing to be ashamed of. dont listen to the hate! I’ll never understand how you guys deal with so much bullshit from random people! You’re so strong!”
She also clapped back at a hater, who wrote:
“Us people? Smh”
Catelynn’s own tweet responded:
“Yes the ones that are uneducated on mental illness. That’s what ignorance is. People with uneducated opinions.”
She’s not wrong.
If you want to see what sorts of hate she’s fighting back again, take a look at this small sampling of social media vitriol that fills her mentions:
“Lots of wives and mothers have to do this while still raising a family. Not everyone has the luxury of dumping their family and hopping on a plane to a rehab center to ‘get their meds right’. They do that between raising a family and working a full time job.”
“If she got a job, joined a gym & ate the right food that be half the battle for her! She’s too much time to sit around eating smoking and thinking. Get a life and live it! Get healthy for one that’s a start.”
“You’re not the only parent struggling with mental health issues. I am a single parent with mental health issues BUT, I still have to provide for my family and be there when my children need me. You are putting Nova in the same position your parents put you in, think about that.”
“Wasn’t she instructed to stay away from social media? She’s a non-compliant patient which makes one wonder in what other areas of her life is she not following the process? Does she even *want* to get better?”
“You complain too much!!! Get over it. People have been through worst s–t then you and youre dragging s–t out thats 10+ yrs old. Woman up. Can’t even cook for your man”
These haters may be eager to slam Catelynn for making what was clearly a responsible choice for herself and for her loved ones.
But Tyler Baltierra is standing by his wife.
In response to her on-camera confession that she needed to return to rehab in order to truly recover, he said:
“I’m not ever leaving, I’m not going anywhere. Don’t think like that.”
He reiterated that message on social media, writing:
“I love you more Babe! True love is boundless, limitless, & unconditional!”
Canelo Alvarez is pissed GGG publicly blasted him as a longtime steroids user — and the Mexican boxing star is firing back with some good ol’ fashioned American trash talk. “I’m gonna kick your f**king ass … little bitch,” Canelo wrote on social…
