U.S.-Mexico Border Crisis Tear Gas Thrown at Migrants, Kids As San Ysidro Crossing Closes

Breaking News

4:34 PM PT — CBP San Diego says pedestrian bridges between Tijuana and San Diego are now open again in both directions, heading north and south. 

Tensions are at a boiling at the U.S.-Mexico border in California, where migrants have started to clash with border agents … who’ve also begun throwing tear gas at them and their children.

U.S. Customs and Border Protection closed the San Ysidro border crossing outside of San Diego Sunday, as hundreds of migrants trying to enter the U.S. — many of whom are seeking asylum — gathered at the border and demanded entry. Some of them even started throwing rocks at agents, and U.S. agents reportedly responded by throwing tear gas into the crowd.

The move is drawing heavy criticism, as there are children among the migrants. No shots have been fired, but remember … President Trump essentially gave the green light for retaliation a few weeks ago as the migrant caravan made its way north. 

Needless to say, it’s an intense scene. As for a possible solution … the Trump administration reportedly struck a deal with the incoming Mexican government to keep asylum seekers south of the border as their cases are heard in court. 

Unclear what a short-term fix might look like, though, as run-ins between authorities and migrants continue to escalate.

Kylie Jenner Faces a Crisis in This KUWTK Clip

Note to Kylie Jenner:

If you want sympathy from viewers of your family's reality show, do not film a scene inside of a closet that is bigger than most one-bedroom apartments in New York City.

On this Sunday's new episode of Keeping Up with the Kardashians, Kim Kardashian will pay her younger half-sister a visit.

The two will end up sitting among giant piles of Kylie's clothing in Kylie's enormous closet while they bond over the challenge of losing weight after having a baby.

(For the record, we know this is a legitimate challenge for women. We just also know it's often all the Kardashians talk about and that they have personal chefs and personal trainers and need to stop setting a poor example for other new mothers by making it sound like nothing else in the world matters.

/end rant.)

"Like nothing in my closet fits me," Kylie says in the clip featured here, to which Kim tells her,: You're looking like really skinny!"

"Thank you, I'm getting rid of stuff that I just feel like's never gonna fit me," Kylie responds, adding:

"I know I'm not gonna fit into like a 25 jean ever again and after our shoot, I'm just feeling a little insecure."

For emphasis, Kylie says again:

"Like my favorite jeans, they're never going to fit me again."

We know now this isn't the case, of course.

The episode was filmed months ago and Jenner has been posting an endless array of photos that show off her slimmed-down physique.

Kim has been there, of course.

She has given birth to two kids and shared the same fears as her sibling is sharing in this sneak peek.

"I know, curves are hard," Kim says. "It's just figuring it out."

There are so many "body shamers" out there who just "don't get it," Kim continues, telling Jenner:

"Trust me I get it. But the pressure to snap back like, it took me a good six to eight months. Once I got there, I was like, 'OK I'm never leaving.'"

She then did her best to comfort Kylie:

"I know it's really early and Stormi's so little, but you just have to roll with it. You just have to be confident, get some things that make you feel good about yourself and find your balance."

How did Jenner respond to this advice?

Meghan Markle: In Crisis Mode! Planning Emergency Trip Home!

Meghan Markle has had it, folks.

She doesn’t know what to do with herself, almost literally.

In this time of desperate need, anger and confusion – as she gets attacked by her awful father left, right and in between – The Duchess of Sussex can only think place to go…

… home.

According to the latest issue of Life & Style, Markle is planning an emergency trip home to Los Angeles to spend time with her mother, Doria Ragland.

She remains very tight with this parent, even while the other parent speaks to every news outlet he can find about how terrible and ungrateful Meghan is as a daughter.

“She’s at a breaking point. She needs to escape from the craziness,” an insider explains to this tabloid, adding of Prince Harry’s better half:

“Meghan is living in fear of what her father is going to do next.”

Can you blame her for thinking this way?

Thomas Markle has often said that he has no way of contacting his daughter.

His solution, therefore, is to give one disgusting sound bite after another, saying that Markle will “deprive” her future kid of time with the kid’s grandfather, for example…

… and taking full credit for all Markle has become.

“She became the woman that she is today thanks to everything I did for her,” Thomashas said.

“Did I get any recognition for it? Any thanks? She doesn’t even speak to me now. How cold is that?”

Markle, as you might expect, can scarcely handle such attacks any longer.

Writes the Life & Style source:

“Apart from Harry, Doria is the only person Meghan feels she can trust.

“She’s holding a crisis meeting with her mom, who has some insight into her ex-husband’s behavior and is hoping to help Meghan figure out how to handle him.”

At this point, though, let’s be honest:

Who knows how to handle an off-the-rails Thomas Markle?

Thomas has lived a quiet and secluded life in Mexico.

He didn’t attend the Royal Wedding due to heart problems and Markle responded in an understanding manner.

But he’s decided to turn on his child in the months since for some reason, leaving Meghan confounded and heartbroken.

“She’s really struggling to come to terms with the fact that the man she once adored and looked up to has stabbed her in the back,” the insider says, adding that Meghan’s husband supports the trip home:

“Harry and Doria have spoken on the phone about their concerns for Meghan’s well-being.

“Harry agrees that Meghan needs some quality time with her mom.”

Abby Lee Miller Faces New Health Crisis, Asks Fans for Prayers

Abby Lee Miller is battling cancer, and receiving visits and comfort from Dance Moms alumni. Now, she’s asking for something else.

If you are one of her fans or followers, she would like your prayers.

On top of her cancer, Miller has a high fever — and her white blood cell count is worryingly low.

“It’s Friday,” Abby Lee Miller writes in the captions of her latest Instagram photo, posted on Friday, August 17.

Curiously, she follows that announcement with the words: “Yay & Pray.”

The yay is to celebrate the end of the workweek. The pray is the beginning of her request.

Miller asks fans and followers to pray that “my white blood cell count goes up and my 103 fever goes down!”

Though she’s clearly not trying to be too dramatic, she follows that up with an understatement: “Yikes!”

She paired her captions with this photo.

Clearly, the once and future Dance Moms star is trying to keep things positive — even chipper.

A 103 fever is no joke. Even a degree or two higher can lead to brain damage.

And while one normally looks for an elevated white blood cell count when a body is fighting certain types of infections, it looks like hers is too low.

Why? She doesn’t say, but we can infer that her chemotherapy and radiation treatments are taking their toll on her immune system.

Earlier this year, Miller was released from prison and sent to a halfway house. It looked like she was on track to getting her old life back.

Then, she was sent to the hospital for an emergency surgery after a fast-creeping paralysis began to spread through her body.

Doctors performed an agonizing spinal surgery on her to take care of what they believed would be just an infection.

Instead, they discovered that she has a kind of cancer — Burkitt lymphoma, which is most often found in children.

That was not what they expected, and it is definitely worse than the infection that they had expected to find.

Miller then underwent a second emergency spinal surgery to relieve pressure, even as she goes through chemo and radiation to deal with the cancer.

Burkitt is a fast-spreading cancer.

The positive side of that is that Burkitt also responds more quickly to treatment than a slow-spreading cancer might.

Burkitt lymphoma has a 90% recovery rate in children, among whom it is the most common.

That figure is said to be somewhat lower among adults, but it sounds like Miller’s odds — statistically speaking — are good.

Still, this is a frightening experience for Miller and for her loved ones and her countless fans.

Though she has been criticized for her antagonistic attitude toward children, no one wants to see her be another victim of cancer.

This fever is, we hope, just a minor speedbump on her road to making a full recovery.

If any fans of hers want to send her their prayers or well-wishes that her fever goes down and her white blood cell count goes up, we are sure that she will appreciate it.

Staci Felker BLASTS Evan Felker for Ghosting Her During Health Crisis

Staci Felker is not a woman to be trifled.

She called out Miranda Lambert as a homewrecker after the country singer was spotted with Staci’s husband, Evan Felker.

Now, she’s taking aim at her ex himself — after he ghosted her when she was in the middle of a health crisis.

“I’m ultimately gonna be fine physically,” Staci shared on Thursday with her fans. “Thanks for all your questions.”

Along with these words, she shared an image of her bracelet from the hospital, which you can see below.

“I’ll answer some more when I feel better,” Staci promises. “But right now —  I want to talk about real men.”

She is not referring to that cringeworthy new Bravo talk show that’s already so widely ridiculed that they’re changing the name from Real Men Watch Bravo.

Ominously, Staci says: “Aside from the ghosting and just very real #psychologicalwarfare and torture that happened earlier this year.”

Staci describes Evan Felker as “a man that I perfected homemade chicken soup for when he was sick, cared for him through soooo many sweating miserable days coming off benders.”

So she’s throwing a little shade, though not necessarily in a way that will hurt his rep with the Country Music crowd.

Evan, she says, “decided to come calling when I was happy last week.”

Recently, she went on vacation, where she believes that Evan felt that she was “too happy.”

In other words, it sounds like she’s saying that he was jealous — and perhaps he was missing her.

By all accounts, Staci had a grand time “riding and then at the beach with my girls.”

This, she says, must have prompted Evan to reach out to her. She imagines that he was thinking: “How dare I smile after all he did to try to break me?”

That might be a little harsh, but you can see where she’s coming from.

“I took those calls,” Staci explains. “Because that’s what a wife does.”

“I’m still his wife,” Staci reminds her followers.

In May, weeks after being publicly linked with Miranda Lambert, Evan Felker filed for divorce from Staci.

“I’ve done everything to be a good one,” Staci says. “Because deep down I thought it might change things.”

“Less than a week later,” Staci says. “I was sent to the hospital and couldn’t reach him.”

We have more details about that below.

“That’s not a real man,” Staci assets. “That’s not a country boy and certainly no cowboy.”

Now she’s attacking his (obviously ridiculous) image and his brand by exposing him as a manipulative coward.

“Not a husband I’ll ever take back,” Staci says. “Because I was scared and he was gone. Again.”

As for the medical emergency itself, Us Weekly reports that Staci Felker’s hospital trip was over a dangerously sore throat.

At first, after having just traveled overseas, there was a genuine fear that she had contracted Malaria.

The two had spoken over the phone during her trip. But when she was afraid in the hospital waiting for test results from her blood tests, he was suddenly nowhere to be found.

That must be a terrible feeling.

It’s good that she’s directing her anger where it belongs — at her husband. It sounds like he has wronged her more than once.

Miranda Lambert, on the other hand, did not “steal” anyone, including Evan. That’s a choice that Evan made on his own.
