Lindsay Lohan is backtracking on some eyebrow-raising comments she made about #MeToo — calling women who speak out as looking “weak” — and is setting the record straight. LiLo issued a statement Sunday apologizing for her remarks and any harm…
In the three months since Meghan Markle married Prince Harry, we’ve had occasion to learn an awful lot about her father, Thomas Markle.
And boy, were we happier not knowing a thing about this doofus.
In case you’ve somehow managed to remain blissfully unaware of his presence, allow us to fill you in:
Dude is just the absolute worst.
Not only did Thomas skip the royal wedding by pretending to have a heart attack, he’s since devoted himself to ruining what should be the happiest time in his daughter’s life.
It’s become clear that Thomas enjoys humiliating Meghan by giving interviews with the trashiest outlets and the world’s very worst people — yes, we’re talking about Piers Morgan.
Thus far, Big Tom has stopped just short of wrapping his head in tinfoil for a sit-down with Alex Jones in which he discusses the mounting evidence that the royals are insect-eating lizard people.
Not surprisingly, it seems Meghan has had enough.
Insiders say Meg is at her wit’s end and has essentially just given up on her father:
“For the life of her, she can’t understand why he’s digging such a deep hole for himself and to say things like, ‘It would be easier for her if her dad died,’” a friend tells the Daily Mail.
The source says Meghan had hoped Tom would agree to STFU as a present for her recent birthday:
“She said she just wishes her dad would ‘stop blathering’ to the press. That’s the one birthday gift she wanted from her father,” the insider claims.
Obviously, that didn’t happen, and now, Meg is temporarily cutting ties for the sake of her own mental health.
“Meghan has no immediate plans to contact her father. Firstly, she’s deeply hurt and secondly, she can’t trust him to keep their conversation private,” the insider shares.
“Meghan is big on being true to herself and taking care of herself, and if this means avoiding toxic relationships so be it,” the source adds.
“It’s not like she’s never ever going to speak with her dad again, but certainly not now, not in this climate.”
Unfortunately, it seems Meg has all but given up on her father changing his ways, as he’s been like this for most of her life:
“Behavior like his doesn’t happen overnight. Why do you think her parents got divorced in the first place? the source says.
“Meghan’s had to deal with a lot of self-esteem issues growing up with a narcissist. She has tools to cope with emotional blackmail.”
At this time, we’d like to reiterate our opinion that Thomas is the absolute worst.

Kim Kardashian is getting confronted and called out left and right these days.
First, as previously posted on The Hollywood Gossip, Kim will get into it big time with her own sister on this Sunday’s return episode of Keeping Up with the Kardashians.
Then, Tyson Beckford randomly went at the reality star on social media.
Now, Kardashian is receiving some very deserved backlash by a pair of actress, Emmy Rossum and Stephanie Beatriz.
The Shameless star and Brooklyn Nine-Nine star each attacked Kim online for the way she reacted over the weekend after her sibilings referred to her as very thin and even anorexic.
In footage Kim herself filmed and shared, Kardashian can be heard thanking loved ones Khloe and Kendall for saying such things about her 119-pound figure.
Here. See for yourself:
The Internet immediately blasted Kardashian for reacting in this way to talk of having an anorexic body (that is NOT a compliment, Kim)…
… while Beatriz used a personal anecdote to help explain why this attitude is so dangerous.
“Kim Kardashian saying what she weighs and her sisters complimenting her being so skinny is like eating my brain rn,” the 37-year-old wrote as a meme, adding:
“There’s only one time in my life when I ever weighed 119 pounds.
“It was right in the middle of a terrible relationship, and intense eating disorder, and I thought that I could be thinner and look even better.”
Yes, there it is.
One should not aim to be as skinny as Kardashians claims to be and one should most definitely not show gratitude for being called anorexic. It stes an awful example.
Beatriz went on to note:
“Everyone kept complimenting me on how I looked, and I felt desperate to stay at that weight. IT SUCKED.”
Beatriz concluded by offering her support to others struggling with eating disorders, writing:
“So if this sh-t b f-cking w you I GET IT. Try not to hurt yourself over it. I’ve been texting friends for support.”
You tell ‘em, Stephanie.
After seeing Beatriz’s posts, Rossum chimed in some words of encouragement on her own Instagram Stories account.
“@iamstephbeatz, I love you and I support you and you’re beautiful and strong and powerful and a creative bada** woman,” she wrote.
Rossum had a lot more to add, though:
“@iamstephbeatz, the only time I was 119 pounds is when I had MONO. On a magazine shoot everyone was ‘freaking out over how good’ I looked. I had lost 10 pounds and was gaunt and sick and felt faint…
“It totally messed with my head. I love you and I’m with you.”
Similar to Beatriz, Rossum concluded her Kim bashing with a larger message of hope for anyone struggling with body image issues.
“You never know what someone is going through,” she wrote.
“If you’re having a tough time with body image, I promise you’re beautiful and this feeling will pass. Today is just a moment. Practice some self-care and reboot.
“Take a bath. Take a walk. Take a yoga class. Make a healthy nutritious meal and watch your favorite funny movie. Tomorrow is another day.”
Yes, yes and yes.
Is this really such a difficult role to fill, Kim?
You have millions and millions of impressionable followers.
Try being a positive role model for them for a change.
Just a few weeks ago, Halsey dumped G-Eazy and publicly implied that he had cheated on her. Yikes.
G-Eazy moved on and is currently touring. He decided to announce to his Instagram followers that he has “Big Dick Energy.”
Well, Halsey had something to say about that in the comments. Take a look:
G-Eazy posted a photo of himself at the Sunlit Supply Amphitheater, standing on a car with countless spotlights providing a dramatic visual effect.
His caption for the photo reads: “Big Dick Energy.”
While a man describing himself as having BDE is just about the polar opposite of actually possessing this quality that became a meme in recent weeks, that’s not what got people’s attention.
No, what made people marvel in wonder is that his ex, Halsey, commented under the photo.
She left three emojis — a cloud, a tornado, and a water droplet.
Followers absolutely noticed Halsey’s comment, which left many scratching their heads.
“I’m so f–king confused,” one fan wrote.
It’s unclear if they were confused by her emojis or the fact that she commented at all.
Another commenter explained: “Couples can break up and not hate each other.”
That is true!
When one commenter accused Halsey of being “petty,” the singer explained herself.
“No petty here,” Halsey writes. “Caption damn funny and stage looks dope. Jealous of everyone who gets to see the show.”
Her words are clear. Her emojis are … less so.
We don’t know exactly what Halsey meant. Interpreting a string of emojis like that is a little like trying to work out hieroglyphs without the Rosetta Stone.
If she had replied with an emoji conveying mocking laughter, that would mean one thing.
If she had replied with an eggplant emoji, that would have been another thing altogether.
But, with the cloud and the tornado, it looks like she’s referring to a storm — or possibly energy.
The water droplet can be used to imply thirst (as in, sexual attraction) or, well, ejaculation.
We should, of course, clarify that Big Dick Energy is not synonymous with someone who is assumed to be well-endowed.
They can totally overlap, but they don’t have to.
The meme has made it very clear that someone might be known to have an absolutely gargantuan penis but lack Big Dick Energy.
Similarly, a cisgender woman can absolutely radiate Big Dick Energy with an intensity that should set off Geiger counters.
That, folks, is the difference between Jared Leto and Tessa Thompson.
This really does seem to be a situation of two exes who still respect each other.
Even if Halsey’s emoji choice was all but inscrutible. But that’s okay.
They’re exes, and she can post whatever emojis she likes. Considering what some of the other emoji options were, her reply was very tasteful.
In the mean time, G-Eazy has been spotted being a bad influence on Demi Lovato as her relapse continues.
This is a guy who’s still getting past that little incident where he got into a fight and was then caught with coke. Whoops.
Big Dick Energy or not, he and Halsey were together for nine months. It’s healthy for them to not treat each other like enemies.
More controversy out of the ‘Big Brother’ house — this time two white housemates complained the sun was making them too dark … and likened that to looking “ghetto.” ‘BB’ contestants Rachel Swindler and Angela Rummans were captured on the show’s…
Remember back in May when Kanye West said slavery was a choice and was justly torn limb-from-limb by the entire internet?
Perhaps after weeks of concerted effort, you succeeded in blocking that shameful incident from your memory — but it’s still very much on the minds of both Kanye and his long-suffering wife.
Earlier this month, Kanye debuted a new studio album, on which he made some surprising and disturbing revelations about his marriage and the way it’s been negatively affected by his erratic behavior.
Now, the controversial rapper has gone into greater detail in a surprisingly candid interview with The New York Times.
West says that after he made the infamous slavery comment during a conversation with TMZ staffers, he had reason to believe Kim Kardashian was considering ending the couple’s four-year marriage:
“There was a moment where I felt like after TMZ, maybe a week after that, I felt like the energy levels were low, and I called different family members and was asking, you know, ‘Was Kim thinking about leaving me after TMZ?’ So that was a real conversation,” he told the paper.
The comment won’t come as much of a surprise for fans who have listened closely to the lyrics on Kanye’s eighth studio album, titled simply ‘Ye:
“I said, ‘Slavery a choice,’ they said, ‘How, Ye?'” West raps at one point, adding:
“My wife callin’, screamin’, say, ‘We ‘bout to lose it all! … Told her she could leave me now, but she wouldn’t leave.”
Obviously, never every line in every rap song is an accurate reflection of the emcee’s real-life experiences, but Kanye prides himself on his authenticity and often insists that he’s 100 percent straightforward with his fans.
That’s why it’s so troubling that the song contains at least one line in which he seemingly alluded to being unfaithful.
“Told my wife I’ve never seen her After I hit it, bye Felicia, that’s the way that I’ma leave it,” Kanye raps on a song fittingly titled “Yikes”.
Sounds like Kim had reasons for considering kicking Kanye to the curb that go beyond his astonishingly ignorant remarks.
As for those dreadful comments Kanye is still defending them, telling the Times:
“I said the idea of sitting in something for 400 years sounds—sounds—like a choice to me, I never said it’s a choice. I never said slavery itself—like being shackled in chains—was a choice.
“That’s why I went from slave to 400 years to mental prison to this and that. If you look at the clip you see the way my mind works.”
All of this comes at a time when Kim is being praised for her efforts to secure presidential pardons for non-violent offenders serving life sentences.
In other words, don’t be surprised if you hear another round of Kim-Kanye divorce rumors.
