ON TODAY’S SHOW T.I.: Arrested For Drunken Assault Marvel’s First Muslim Superhero John Travolta Parties With 50 Cent Stan Lee: The $ 1 Billion Lawsuit
Harvey Weinstein’s rainy day has arrived — it’s more like a monsoon, really — and he’s insisting his insurance company cover his ass, because that’s why he’s been paying his premiums. Weinstein’s insurer, Chubb Indemnity Insurance Co., ran to…
90210? More like 9021… oh no, Tori Spelling.
That’s the sort of joke we’d typically make about the actress if she got into some kind of trouble or scandal that we deemed worthy of an article.
But we’re just not in the mood at the moment.
Not when Spelling appears to be spiraling so far down that a dig about how Donna Martin deserves to graduate simply feels trite and inappropriate.
To open the month, in case you forgot, police responded to a call from Spelling and husband Dean McDermott’s home.
Upon arrival, they discovered the mother of five reportedly acting erratically and irresponsibly, with sources claiming Spelling suffered a nervous breakdown of some sort.
She was taken to the hospital at the time for evaluation.
Was this episode caused by a fight with McDermott?
By the marriage being on the rocks and even nearing divorce?
We can’t say for certain…
… but we can say that McDermott called authorities for a second time on March 8, as he feared for his wife “well-being,” sources confirm, due to her strange behavior.
Deputies spoke to Spelling after this incident and determined that no action needed to be taken.
But fans are suddenly extremely worried about Spelling’s mental state.
Should they be?
Is the veteran actress, who has become more known these days for giving birth to lots of kids and struggling with both her relationship and her finances, on the verge of legitimate breakdown?
Perhaps, although Tori sought to quell these concerns on Instagram over the weekend.
“I’m strong. I’m amazing. I’m beautiful. I’m wonderful. I’m worthy. I’m loved. I’m brave. I’m sweet. I’m happy. I’m me,” wrote the 44-year old as a clear message to fans and critics.
She even circled the words “I’m me” in red to make them stand out.
Spelling later shared a quick clip of her one-year-old son, Beau, trying sushi for the first time.
(Spelling and McDermott also share four other kids: Liam, 10, Stella, 9, Hattie, 6, and Finn, 5. It’s a busy household, for sure.)
And while Spelling may have been trying to assure fans that everything is okay via this posting, an insider tells Entertainment Tonight that everything is NOT okay.
Not with her marriage, at least.
“Tori and Dean’s marriage is in shambles despite having a sit down last week to try to make it work,” this outlet reports, adding:
“They made an attempt to use the tools given to them by their therapist to create a healthy environment for the kids but it isn’t working.
What’s the problem?
“One of Tori’s main issues with Dean is he isn’t helping with the kids as much as she feels he should,” ET writes.
“He used to do everything but has stepped away and started taking more time for himself.”
There’s been chatter for years that this romance is on the brink of disaster, but recent event make this rumors appear closer to reality than ever before.
“Dean is trying to be calm and handle things,” the source concludes. “He doesn’t want to raise his voice or say anything that she could misconstrue to the police.
“She panics every time he is out.
“If she doesn’t know exactly where he is, her anxiety goes through the roof. She seems to live in fear he will cheat again.”
We hope these stars work out their issues, considering they are the parents to five young kids.
And, if they do not, we hope Spelling finds some mental peace amid the turmoil.
McDermott seems to sort of suck anyway.
She can do better.
Oh dear. Lamar Odom is reportedly back at it again, making the rounds and indulging himself in Las Vegas.
What happens in Vegas does not, in fact, stay there, and multiple witnesses are describing exactly what they saw go down.
Is he spiraling out of control again?
The world remembers how, just a few years ago, Lamar Odom suffered a horrifying medical crisis that many feared would claim his life.
He was rushed from the Vegas brothel to the hospital. By mistake, Khloe was initially told that he had died.
The situation was so dire that Khloe asked a judge to bring their divorce to a grinding halt so that she could make any medical decisions necessary.
And so that she could supervise his recovery — which she eventually did, practically nursing him back to health.
Between that and major health scares like Lamar’s collapse at a night club late last year, you’d think that he’d be being careful.
Unfortunately, it sounds like he’s putting himself at risk again.
RadarOnline reports that, per multiple eyewitnesses who spilled everything to them, Lamar Odom is back in Vegas.
And it doesn’t sound like a social visit.
They report that Lamar returned to Vegas for gambling last week, and that his indulgence lasted multiple days and spanned two different casinos.
One was the Wynn Hotel and the other was SLS.
And they describe the reports of eyewitnesses.
The first, who saw him on March 4th, describes spotting him nearby.
“He was right at the table next to me gambling.”
They went on, saying how casually they were able to engage with him.
“He was very easy to approach.”
Another who saw him on March 5th
“I was kind of surprised to see him in Vegas after the events of his last foray out there that nearly cost him his life.”
This isn’t the first time that Khloe’s ex has been spotted tempting fate.
Reportedly, Lamar was drinking on New Year’s. Drinking alcohol can be fun, but surely it’s not worth risking your life.
But it is his life to throw away.
Recently, he appeared to throw shade at Khloe over her pregnancy.
That did not go over well, and prompted Kim Kardashian to slam Lamar by reminding him of his brush with death in Vegas.
One might wonder if Lamar is in Vegas purely to defy the Kardashians.
But it’s important to note that Lamar was, per the reports, just gambling.
The former NBA player wasn’t accused of drinking or anything else here. And while Lamar did have a health crisis in Vegas, it was not because he was gambling.
It’s possible that some fans are overreacting because they worry about his health.
But … someone has to worry about his health, right?
And since Khloe Kardashian is happily with Tristan Thompson and eagerly expecting the birth of their daughter and being a happy family together, we’d say that she has her hands a little too full.
She can’t babysit Lamar anymore. He needs to look after himself.
Earlier this week, Joy-Anna Duggar welcomed her first child.
While the news received a mostly congratulatory response from fans, there’s been a good deal of controversy surrounding the birth of little Gideon Martyn Forsyth.
For starters, many fans have openly wondered if the date of birth served to confirm rumors that Joy got pregnant before getting married to Austin Forsyth.
Throughout much of the pregnancy, Joy was plagued by reports that she broke her family’s courtship rules by having premarital sex.
However, she delivered her baby 39 weeks after saying “I do,” which means there might be some truth to her claims that she got pregnant on one of the first nights of her honeymoon.
Whatever the case, it seems that Joy might finally be able to put that controversy behind her … just in time for a new round of gossip and speculation.
According to Radar Online, Joy was rushed to a hospital during her delivery after being forced to abandon her plans for a home birth.
Not surprisingly, the move has prompted discussion amongst fans, with many assuming there was some sort of emergency.
But as others have pointed out, that’s not necessarily the case.
In a video posted on TLC’s website just weeks before the delivery, Joy detailed her plans for a home birth as she offered a virtual tour of the house she and Austin recently moved into.
“We got the birth pool set up,” she told the camera.
“We got the house somewhat cleaned out. Now we need to fill up the pool and hopefully set up some beds in the guest bedroom.”
But while she seemed excited about welcoming her son into the world at home, Joy also allowed for the possibility that she would need to relocate to a medical facility.
“Prepare for the birth and have plans, but if something doesn’t go as planned then be okay with that and have another plan,” she said in the video.
It’s possible that Joy was advised by her doctor that she might have to deliver at a hospital.
Or perhaps she was prepared for the possibility due to the fact that her older sister, Jill Duggar, also gave birth in a hospital despite plans to do so at home.
Whatever the case, it doesn’t seem that Joy was terribly caught off guard by the change in plans.
Of course, that probably won’t stop fans from speculating that something went horribly wrong.

Jill Duggar has been a reality TV star since childhood.
As such, she’s accustomed to sharing just about everything with her family’s massive fan base.
But there are some things that even Jill would prefer to keep private.
When Jill welcomed her second child back in July of 2017, she waited several weeks before posting a photo.
Now, fans believe they know why.
Jill’s husband, Derick Dillard, posted the above photo on his Instagram page this week as part of a montage celebrating his mother’s birthday.
Fans were shocked by the never-before-seen image of baby Samuel hooked up to wires with tubes coming out of his nose.
Some of Derick’s followers were deeply concerned by what they saw.
Others insisted that while they’re certainly unsettling, such scenes are not uncommon.
“That is a tube to suction fluid out of the lungs,” commented one fan.
“When babies are born by C-section the fluid does not get pushed out by contractions. It is normal to have to get this out, not a complication. Happened with both my C-section babies.”
Others continue to suspect that Samuel experienced serious health problems from birth and that the Duggars did their best to downplay the severity of the situation.
“Omg poor Samuel, feeding tube and oxygen. Don’t think he was as healthy at birth as you said originally,” one of Derick’s followers wrote.
At the time of Samuel’s birth, the Duggars did reveal that he was born via C-section following a difficult and complicated labor.
“After 40 hours of labor, he was delivered via C-section at the hospital,” the family revealed in a statement released just after the birth.
“Thank you for your continued prayers and support!”
“His birth didn’t go as expected,” Jill later stated in an interview with People magazine.
In all likelihood, fans will never know exactly how serious Samuel’s health problems were at the time of his birth.
Derick Dillard has been fired by TLC as a result of some controversial public statements, and it appears as though his family will be leaving the spotlight along with him.
So going forward, the only source of information about the Dillard family will be the Dillards themselves.

Changes continue to be afoot for Tarek El Moussa.
But what do they mean?
That’s what Tarek himself is now wondering.
Over the past several days, fans of the Flip or Flp co-host have seen a surprising new side to El Moussa.
Most notably, they’ve seen his shirtless side, courtesy of a photo shoot that centered on Tarek’s VERY impressive physique.
Who knew he was hiding these rippling muscles and this well-sculpted six-pack under the shirt he always wore on HGTV and while making other public appearances?!?
Tarek shared pictures such as the one above in response to estranged wife Christina El Moussa doing the same.
In a clear battle of revenge bodies, Tarek felt a need to do something in reply after Christina stripped down to her bikini and took Instagram followers behind the scenes of an ad campaign that features both herself and her six-year old daughter.
While we were taken aback to see the ripped figure hiding under Tarek’s clothes, we can’t say we were too shocked by what Christina is rocking on a daily basis.
She’s always been very svelte and attractive.
Not that we’re complaining about the revealing photos, of course.
So anyway. This brings us to this past weekend and another picture posted by Tarek.
In his latest social media image, the reality star keeps his top on, but shifts his head over to give supporters a look at a new haircut.
We’ve shared the fresh look at the outset of this article and we aren’t even the ones questioning Tarek’s inspiration for it.
He’s the one who is openly speculating on why he’s undergone a makeover to various parts of his person.
“OH NO!!! New #clothing.. New #hairstyle…. #No more sandals!! Half #naked pics!!! Is this a mid life crisis??” El Moussa wrote as a caption to the black-and-white picture of his new haircut.
“My sister hooked up the new #hollyweird hair style @l33hairartistry… looking pretty fly for an #old guy!!”
Okay, so maybe Tarek is being a tad sarcastic here.
But no one could blame the guy if he really does want a fresh start.
It’s sounding more and more like Flip or Flop will get canceled after Season 7.
Christina has been making the media rounds and re-introducing herself to the world, most likely in the hopes of landing a solo series on HTV or another cable network.
Where would this leave Tarek, whose reputation isn’t exactly unassailable these days following a round of ugly rumors?
It’s hard to say.
But Tarek appears to see the writing on his professional wall and is trying to do something about it. He’s fighting back. He’s sharing his story.
And it actually is an inspiring story to share, considering El Moussa was diagnosed with both testicular cancer and thyroid cancer a few years ago.
“I shot this and was too embarrassed to share so I didn’t,” Tarek captioned one of his workout photos, adding:
“I know my journey has inspired many people so I made the difficult decision to post.. this is after battling 2 cancers and a debilitating back injury.”
Hoping to serve as a role model for other cancer survivors, he concluded:
“My doctor said ‘You would probably never be able to life weights again’… that motivated me to prove him wrong and get into the best shape of my life!!!
“Thank you to my trainer @quintin_tucker for all the hard work and motivation and @pyejirsa for the amazing photos.
“Remember….it’s not the size of the dog in the fight, it’s the size of the fight in the dog.”
For months now, fans of the Duggar family have been expressing their concerns about Derick Dillard’s health.
There’s been no official word on what’s ailing Derick, but fans have noticed that the soon-to-be father of two appears to have lost a good deal of weight in a short amount of time, and often appears pale and tired.
At first, the Duggars refused to acknowledge the controversy, but while Jim Bob likes to exercise complete control over his family’s privacy, he likes ratings even more, so it looks like we’ll finally start getting the inside scoop on the curious case of Derick Dillard.
The first promos for the new season of Counting On hinted that Derick would confront his health problems after a series of scary incidents.
The preview shows Derick vomiting while running, an episode that appears to have resulted in an emergency visit to the doctor.
“It feels great to be home and run like I used to,” Derick tells the camera at one point, “but it is difficult sometimes.”
Jill is seen explaining that physical exertion makes her husband “gaggy.”
The strange symptom, coupled with Derick’s rapid and unexplained weight loss, has left fans worried.
Adding to the problem is the fact that Derick’s appearance has changed not only as a result of his weight loss, but also because of extensive oral surgery.
In late 2015, Derick had several bones in his face broken as part of an orthodontic procedure.
The 27-year-old has been wearing braces ever since.
Amidst all of these changes, the Dillards spent several months in El Salvador, performing missionary work in one of the Central American nation’s poorer sectors.
So it’s possible that a series of major life changes have simply manifested themselves in Derick’s appearance and there’s no one thing majorly wrong with the reality star and substitute teacher.
But whatever the case, you can be sure the Duggars will mine his health issues for ratings gold.
With no weddings on the horizon and Jill’s baby not due until July (Jessa’s is due next month) storylines were reportedly tough to come by during the latest round of filming, and fans’ interest in Derick’s health shows no signs of letting up.
Watch Counting On online to get caught up in time for this week’s episode.
It's not exactly a secret that Kailyn Lowry has been having a tough year. Or a tough couple of years.
Really, poor ol' girl's just had a tough life, but we don't have time to go through all that sadness right now. So let's just focus on 2016 and how it sincerely tried to destroy her.
At the beginning of the year, and all throughout the year, we're sure, Kailyn was reeling after suffering a miscarriage.
The miscarriage, she's said, contributed to to her divorce from husband Javi Marroquin, and that's the thing that's really thrown her for a loop for the past several months.
She's been consistently making cryptic, worrisome posts on her various social media accounts, she's gotten what seems like a significant amount of plastic surgery, she's declared that she'll never get married again.
Kailyn has also made statements that made it seem like her time with Teen Mom 2 is drawing to a close.
But, thank goodness, that time is not now.
Our girl here is back for the new season of the show, the one that premieres on Monday night, and we have a new clip from the first episode.
In this clip, Kailyn is dealing with what she calls a "quarter life crisis."
See the dramatic footage below:
