Amber Rose and her new boyfriend, Monte Morris, are serious … so serious they’ve decided they’re gonna be in an exclusive, committed relationship. Sources close to the couple tell us they recently started telling friends they’re no…
The news that John David Duggar is courting Abbie Burnett has revived interest in Counting On fans’ very favorite question:
Namely, why is it that Jana Duggar is still single?
Jana is only 28, but in the Duggars’ world, that’s dangerously close to old maid territory.
Jana and her sisters were taught from a young age that procreation is second only to praisin’ the lawd on the list of a woman’s reasons for being.
While her siblings took that lesson to heart, with most of them marrying young and getting pregnant on their honeymoons, Jana has chosen a different path.
From what we’ve seen, that path mostly involves helping to care for her younger siblings, and lots and lots of gardening.
But if a new fan theory is to be believed, Jana’s existence isn’t quite as lonely as we’ve been led to believe.
If you’re a longtime Duggar aficionado, then you might recognize Jana’s longtime friend Laura Demasie.
Jana and Laura have been so close for so long that Demasie has even helped Jana with the homeschooling of her younger siblings.
So perhaps it should come as no surprise that many Duggar fans now suspect that Jana and Laura are more than just friends.
The subject is a common topic of discussion on Duggar-focused message boards on Reddit.
Many point to Jim Bob Duggar’s cryptic 2017 comment that Jana “preferred the company of women” as evidence.
It certainly sounds suggestive, but we’re pretty sure Jim Bob didn’t mean to imply that Jana might be gay.
We say that not because she’s definitely not gay, but because we highly doubt Jim Bob would ever publicly acknowledge that fact if she were.
It’s no secret that several Duggar children have rebelled against Jim Bob’s authoritarian rule in recent years.
But women wearing pants instead of floor-length skirts is one thing — coming out as homosexual would be quite another.
Hard it is to believe in 2018, there are still families that consider being gay to be a disownable offense.
And the Duggars are one of them.
Sadly, if Jana and Laura were actually in a relationship, they would likely be forced to keep it a secret for the rest of their days.
Even if the rumors about Jana were true and she wanted to come out she would likely realize that doing so would lead Jim Bob to force all of his other children to cut ties with her.
And for someone as family-oriented as Jana, that would be tantamount to a death sentence.
As if any of us needed another reason to dislike Jim Bob.

Chloe Bennet is the star of Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and an incredibly talented, stunningly beautiful actress. She’s also a good person.
Logan Paul is a consummate YouTube star in the worst ways. Some were fortunate enough to have never heard of him before his video mocking Japanese suicide victims went viral at the beginning of the year.
For a while, they’ve been rumored to have been dating. And it is with heavy hearts that we confirm that this is true.
On Wednesday, one concerned fan’s question was able to confirm a mildly disturbing rumor.
“Hey @chloebennet,” a fan asked on Twitter. “I’m seeing rumors you are dating l*gan p*ul? just wondering why you would do that”
Note that this was the fan’s censorship of Logan Paul’s name, not ours (though that censorship can be a smart move on social media).
Celebrities don’t always respond to questions about dating rumors, even when they’re true. But Chloe did reply.
“‘Cause he’s kind, creative, funny, vibrantly curious about life, weird as f–k in all the best ways, a big dork, and he’s one of my best friends,” Chloe replied.
“It doesn’t make sense to a lot of people,” Chloe admitted in the same tweet. “But it doesn’t have to. He’s changed my life for the better and I’ve done the same for him.”
Some may be wondering why someone would censor Logan’s name in a tweet or why people would ask why any self-respecting person, particularly a woman of Asian descent, would date him.
The Twitter user who asked the question in the first place explained in a pair of follow-up tweets.
“I should have included the context within which I was inquiring: considering his past anti-Asian racisms,” the tweet reads. “I ‘censored’ his name so that I wouldn’t have to deal with his stans (so its non-searchable) eating my ass bc I don’t actually like them.”
That same Twitter user also responded to the answer that she received, writing:
“I appreciate that @chloebennet took the time to respond with her side of the story,” she tweeted. “I don’t like him any more than I did before, but this is her life and her choice — that’s the end of it.”
That is a very healthy point of view.
In case the revelation on Twitter wasn’t enough,
TMZ‘s cameras caught Chloe and Logan out and about in Beverly Hills, where they confirmed their relationship with a high five.
After what has apparently been some time of secrecy, they’re finally dating out in the open.
This might be alarming for a lot of Chloe’s fans, but … even though she’s a public figure, how much of this is their business?
Is Logan Paul a human garbage fire? Yes.
Over a month after the widespread controversy over his video in Japan’s infamous “suicide forest,” he filmed himself tasering a dead animal for some reason.
His behavior was so bad that YouTube once again suspended his ads.
Remember, folks, YouTube is a site whose algorithms often lead impressionable teens to Nazi recruitment videos. If you’re not meeting their content standards, you’re either really bad … or showed some forbidden nipples.
But that does not mean that Chloe Bennet does not get to make her own decisions.
We’re inclined to say that the Twitter user who asked her has the right idea when they write “this is her life and her choice — that is the end of it.”
Besides, who among us hasn’t dated or hooked up with a hottie with a terrible personality and struggled to justify our decision to friends?
You don’t have to like Logan Paul to support Chloe’s right to follow her own path.
And Chloe absolutely should not be held accountable for her boyfriend’s bad behavior.
Also, despite my frustration, this reminds me that I really should catch up on Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.
Ever wanted to watch two women go at it for the same man?
If so, then The Real Housewives of New York Season 10 Episode 14 was the episode you’ve been waiting for.
Bethenny Frankel and Ramona Singer have never been close friends. In all honesty, it would not be a standard episode of the series if there was not some shade throwing from either party.
As such, it was only natural the pair would find the same man attractive at a speed dating event.
But the man starts things off by buying Ramona a drink. That’s generally a low-key way of telling somebody you’re into them without being left red-faced.
The man introduced himself as Ryan before engaging in conversation with Bethenny, much to the chagrin of Ramona who was already planning the wedding … and the divorce to see if it benefited her financially.
We kid, mostly.
“I think you’re super cool,” Ryan said to Bethenny. “I think you’re awesome.”
Yeah, we’re sure anyone would find Bethenny awesome, because, well, she’s a bit of a loose cannon and it’s best to keep in her good books, or you could find yourself ousted from every top bar in NYC.
“Thank you. Aww, that’s super nice,” the veteran cast member said in response before hugging him.
“‘Thank you, that was very sweet. I think the same thing about you, I think it took balls to come here, I really do. I appreciate it,” Bethenny continued as she acted smitten with him.
“It was a little romantic, walking in and being like, “Oh my God…”‘ said Bethenny of her thoughts on Ryan.
The thing that confirmed Bethenny was really interested was that she uttered the following after some more chatter:
“I’m always 100 percent honest with everyone,” she said to him. “Doesn’t mean it’s not going to hurt somebody else, but I’m single – I’m completely single.”
Not one to take Bethenny getting the man as defeat, Ramona hit up the bar to get Ryan a drink in return for him getting her one.
“I don’t really care who he likes,” Ramon barked at someone who said Bethenny was getting close to Ryan. “He brought me a drink, so I want to bring him a drink.”
“Since you were kind enough to bring me a drink, I thought I’d bring you a drink,” Ramona said to Ryan as she handed over the drink, making sure to grin at Bethenny.
Poor Carole Radziwill did not get to meet the man because Bethenny and Ramona were all over him.
“I didn’t get to meet the guy Rory wanted me to meet because he was being devoured by Ramona and Bethenny,” she said in a confessional.
Sucks to be you, Carole.
Elsewhere in the episode, Sonja Morgan wanted to get back on the market. No, we’re not talking about her townhouse that is busier with people partying than some of NYC’s hottest nightclubs.
We’re talking about her wanting to start dating again. As hilarious as that sounds, it made for some fun scenes as she and Bethenny worked on her dating profile.
It turns out, Sonja is somewhat high maintenance and wants to find a man who can keep up with that.
The ladies were also preparing for Luann’s cabaret, and they were all over the place. They did not like being directed, it seemed, and that was problematic.
This event is not going to go without a hitch, and that’s going to make for another fun episode, we guess.
The Real Housewives of New York continues Wednesday on Bravo.
According to a new tabloid report, Jennifer Aniston’s love life is no longer DOA.
The gorgeous actress may have been stuck in second gear ever since her split from Justin Theorux in February…
… but she’s now intent on making sure she isn’t alone every day, week, month and or even every year.
The general point here is the following:
Aniston is dating once again!
While filming the new Netflix movie Murder Mystery in Montreal on June 27, a source on set said the star appeared “happy” all the time, with her “very upbeat” mood having a positive effect on co-stars such as Adam Sandler.
And why are things going so well for Aniston at the moment?
Nearly five months after she and Theroux confirmed their separation to the public, Us Weekly alleges that Aniston isn’t just out there looking for a new partner again.
She’s actually being wooed by two men!
“It’s very hush-hush,” a friend tells this tabloid, only saying that neither suitor is in the acting business.
The first contender, says another source, is a tech titan introduced to Aniston by a close pal.
“He recently split from his wife and is trying to win over Jen,” says this source.
As for the second individual hoping to become more than just friends (get it?!? FRIENDS?!?!?) with Aniston, a confidant tells the same magazine that he “is an industry creative she met when they started working on a project together several months ago.”
And Aniston has the full support of those close to her, many of whom are psyched she’s back in the dating game.
“Jen’s group is excited that she’s dating again,” claims an Aniston insider. “They can hardly keep it a secret when they’re so happy to see Jen moving on.”
Aniston has not really been linked romantically to anyone since she and Theroux pulled the plug on their marriage.
With the exception of Brad Pitt, of course, that is.
Some folks out there really think she and Pitt are back together.
Heck, just consider this magazine cover below.
No way it would be misleading its readers in any way, shape or form, right?
So, just how serious is Aniston about Man #1 and/or Man #2?
Not all that serious, this same report explains.
“As strong as Jen is, she tends to be very wary of new people,” says a friend. “It normally takes a while for her to open up and trust someone.”
She’s been burned in the past, most notably by Pitt who, at the very least, carried on an emotional affair with Angelina Jolie prior to leaving Aniston for the actress.
And maybe more than that.
We’re therefore glad Aniston is taking it slow, letting these suitors prove themselves to her before making any final decisions.
There’s no rush. And she’s a major catch. They have to earn her.
